-Buster, make up your mind already!
-Just a second.
OK - a scoop of tattoo goo, calamari crunch, pretzels and cream
and a scoop of dolce on a sugar comb with jalapenos.
Have you ever tried to bite off more than you can chew? Buster has.
-How are you gonna eat all that?
-First, I lick from south to north.
-Next, I lick from east to west. S-S-Slurp!
-Buster! Look out!
Ice cream down! Quick! I need the paddles!
This has to be a perfect shot.
-You should have been a performing seal.
-I picked up extra nuts!
-How do you feel?
-Have you slept OK? Is your tongue coated?
-What is it?
-We just want you to be ready for the bowling tournament.
Relax! I've been bowling since I could walk. We'll roll over them!
-Wouldn't it be nice to beat Mighty Mountain?
-Remember when you two
were having a fight, and Mighty Mountain creamed us at soccer?
-As I recall, we won that game.
Well, what about the time it was Friday 13th,
and you were superstitious? Mighty Mountain clobbered us at softball.
-We won that game too.
What about the highlight tournament?
-That won't happen again.
-We've got the best bowler on our side.
-Did you say bowling?
Can I play? Those two-tone shoes are so retro chic!
-Sorry, Muffy. The team can only have four players.
And I was going to get Daddy to have some cool bowling shirts made.
Maybe you could be our... bowling fashion consultant!
Goody! But we're going to have to do something about your hair!
It all comes down to this - Fransky has to bowl a strike.
-The crowd's breathless.
-What did I say about bowling in the house?
-Just psyching up for the tournament on Saturday.
-You can't go.
-It's your cousin's Bar Mitzvah.
-I can't miss the biggest tournament!
It's an important family event. It'll be fun.
-You'll get to see all your cousins.
The school's counting on me! No-one will notice I'm not there!
You've gotta let me go!
-What do you mean you can't bowl on Saturday!
-I knew it!
-Her tongue was furry!
-No, it's my cousin's Bar Mitzvah.
-It's the Jewish celebration of adulthood.
-For females, it's called a Bat Mitzvah.
You turn 13, recite some prayers and everyone says you're an adult.
-Then a boring party.
-It's more significant than that.
You must go back to the beginning of the Jewish people,
when Abraham and Sarah begat Isaac, who begat Jacob,
-But without Francine, we'll get creamed again!
I'm sorry, but what can I do? I can't be in two places at once!
Maybe you can...
By my calculations,
it IS possible to attend the Bar Mitzvah AND bowl,
but it requires precision timing.
Step 1 - wear your party dress over your bowling clothes.
Step 2 - Seth becomes an adult no later than 12.30pm.
Step 3 - drink one glass of punch at the party,
then - at precisely 12.52pm - sneak out the back door.
-Step 4 - ride your bike to...
-Wait! How does my bike get there?
-On his way, Arthur will leave it for you.
-And my bowling shoes.
-How do I get there?
-The team fashion consultant.
Where was I?
At the part where twin jets come out of Francine's bike...
Step 5 - you beat Mighty Mountain for us.
-Final step... Return to the party before anyone misses you.
I like it!
-Hurry up, Francine!
JEWISH PRAYERS ARE SUNG
HE SINGS IN HEBREW
-I didn't know Seth could speak Hebrew.
-He can't really,
-but he studied this passage for a year, ready for today.
-We've got to get to the party.
-I'm starving. Yeah...
LIVELY MUSIC PLAYS
-This is SO cool!
-Let's see you groove. Dance with me.
Um... Maybe later. Right now, I have to go to...to the bathroom.
Come on, come on...!
-Where are my bowling shoes?
-Um...at my house? I remembered your bike.
-There's no time to argue!
You're 12 minutes, 18 seconds late.
Just go rent a pair.
-Quick! I need a pair of shoes - size 4.
-All I got is a 10.
-I'm coming... What's this?
-You forgot my bowling ball?
-No, but as the team's fashion consultant,
I thought your ball looked a little shabby, so I got you a new one.
This looks like a toy!
-And my fingers don't fit!
-Well, EXCUSE ME!
-You think I'm happy with your ridiculous combo?
Still 35 points behind.
-It's these shoes - my feet keep slipping out.
-We can tape them on.
-I'll find tape. I've got time before my next turn.
-Time? I'm late!
I've gotta go! Someone bowl for me! I'll be back!
-Francine, where have you been?
-I went outside to get some fresh air.
I was feeling kind of queasy.
Hmm...you ARE a little clammy.
So, did I miss the overcooked peas and underdone chicken?
Whoa! We're having roast beef?
-This looks delicious!
-If you have an upset stomach, don't eat meat.
-Could you bring plain broth?
-HER TUMMY RUMBLES
OK, I'm here...! What's SHE doing?
-She had to take your turn.
-She'll lose us the tournament!
-That's the worst bowling stance I've seen.
-She's been OK.
Here's the tape for your shoes.
Aaagh! This is taking FOREVER!
-Let me take over!
-The rules say she has to finish her frame.
Why not go back to the party and return for the final?
-Did I miss the hora?
-No, you're just in time.
HORA MUSIC PLAYS
-Oh... A waiter spilt roast beef on me.
What a klutz! Do I get to go in the chair, too? I feel much better.
Sure - after Seth and his parents.
OK, Frankie - your turn!
Shouldn't Katherine go first? She's older.
I need to clean my dress.
There! Mighty Mountain, look out!
-I don't believe it! She got a 7-10 split!
THEY CHEER AND WHOOP
You mean...it's over?
I chipped a nail! ALL: Muffy! Muffy!
-So, where were you this time?
-Uh...at the punch bowl.
I thought your nose grew when you lie, but it's your BOWLING SHOES!
-After this, I've got to mop the kitchen floor.
I guess they were upset you missed part of the Bar Mitzvah.
So am I. I missed a really great party for that stupid tournament.
There's another party coming up.
-Yours. If you start preparing now,
you'll be ready for your Bah Mitzvah in five years, 93 days,
270 minutes and 48 seconds... 47 seconds, 46 seconds, 45 sec...
