Minute 022: You Better Have a Talk with Your Son

  • 20 May, 2024

Guests: Chris Cooper and Natalie Canerday

Homer talks about the spot on his father’s lung, “the size of a damn quarter.”

“You don’t know what the mine gives me,” says John, walking into the kitchen. “You don’t know ’cause you’re still a boy. But, by golly, you’re gonna find out soon enough.”

“I’m never goin’ down there!” says Homer.

“You better have a talk with your son, Elsie,” says John, looking at Homer, “’cause he’s out of control.”

Homer heads to the basement, where he finds that all his rocket hardware is missing.

“Where’s my rocket stuff?” asks Homer, coming into the kitchen. John points out the front door.

“Right where they belong!” says John.
