Back at the Bailey household, Bailey Sr. is sitting at the dining room table under a lamp that is hanging from the ceiling and bobbing back and forth. Ma Bailey yells, “George! Harry! You’re shaking the house, now stop it!” Wow, they must be really close. “Let them alone,” Bailey Sr. says. “I wish I were up there with them.” So that’s how it is in their house.
The stereotypical black maid says, “That’s why all children should be girls.” Even Ma Bailey doesn’t have the energy to explain this to Maid. Instead, she calls George and Harry downstairs for dinner. An invisible dog barks. Harry chases Maid and she threatens to hit him with a broom. He says, “I love you and there’s a moon out tonight,” then as he chases her into the kitchen he smacks her ass. Lawsuit!
George and Bailey Sr. have a nice conversation about how Bailey Sr. looks tired, he had another “tussle” with Old Man Potter (this town is so gay!) and how Potter is sick in his mind and soul if he has one.
Harry takes off and Bailey Sr. tells him no gin tonight. Does he mean the drink or card game? It’s hard to tell with this family. Harry tells George he hopes he can make it over for the graduation party – turns out George has held down the fort at the Building and Loan for four years to save up money for college and the trip he’s about to take. Now it’s Harry’s turn to work before college. Sucks to be you!
George tells his dad he wants to build things and do great things and Bailey Sr. asks if he’d be willing to come back to the Building and Loan. George is like f#ck that noise old man, why would I want to fight soulless Potter and make no money? Which, how do they not make money? They are like Trump and his casino. You think it’s impossible for a casino to lose money, but here we are.
George tells his dad he wants to do something big and something important. Then I would highly recommend being a stock broker for an orphanage. Bailey Sr. says helping people get homes is important but George thinks differently and if he doesn’t get away, he’ll bust. Then George tells Bailey Sr. he’s a great guy. Aww, what a nice moment they are sharing.
George decides to go to Harry’s graduation party and it turns out we’re in 1928 now, right before the economy went bust. Or maybe it’s 2008? Hard to tell. George runs into an old friend, Sam Wainwright, who does this bloody annoying “Hee-ha” noise that makes me want to punch him. The principal (or something) of the school welcomes George and tells him putting a floor over the pool was a great idea. It wasn’t George’s idea, dude.
