On a hot Summer day, the Gook family all try to stay cool. Russel is all for a dip in the pool down at the Y, but Sade whips out her arsenal of reasons to not go. She sends him on an errand to the store for a few kitchen essentials.
Vic has an important letter from his Kitchenware company. What amazing news does he have from his boss? Sade is less than interested, and Russel is forced to re-read the opening lines over and over again, due to the interuptions of Vic and Sade. Sade sees Vic’s shortening patience at having his letter not be read, but I suppose she doesn’t feel that her comments of lacking interest aren’t as rude. Not to mention poor Russel, who has to read the same opening words at his parents rude interuptions. A call from Ruthie Stembottom is the thing to break the rising emotions, but in the end we’re right where we entered.
