Vic settles in for a quiet afternoon of getting work done that he brought from the office. It looks as if he has picked the ideal day. Rush is at school, Sade is taking a trip to Twanda, and there seems to be no chance of being disturbed. Ha!
The interuptions trickle in as Rush is home from school after the principle declared a teacher conference. Sade’s trip is cancelled due to car troubles. Vic’s frustrations are compounded as the dam bursts with interuptions and distractions. Needy people pour into the scene. Uncle Fletcher can’t get food from between his teeth, neighbors pop in for one need or other, all expecting the Gooks aren’t doing anything, and can bend to whatever whim has brought them in.
But wait. It gets worse. An innocent, and seemingly unrelated incident, cause the flood of interuptions to explode. There’s construction on Emerson and Oak Streets, and the flow of familiar faces is joined by people who are total strangers.
Through it all Rush tries to dutifully read the invoices to Vic. Sade is apologetic for her failure to keep the house quiet. Fletcher and all the familiar faces are pretty much gone. Who are all these strangers, and why are they walking through the Gook’s living room? Vic may as well be doing his work on a busy city sidewalk. Fletcher, Miss Harris, and Mr Sprawl re-enter with some good news, but has all the crazy traffic traffic stopped just yet?
None today. Keith shares comments on handpicked clips.
