Can I come live with you this summer?
Do your parents know you're asking me this?
Not yet. I will tell them if you say yes.
Why do you want to come to New York?
Because I want to spend the summer hanging out with my favorite uncle.
Now give me the real answer.
I just want to spend some time away from home.
I'll say yes on some conditions.
You have a curfew, you find a job or an internship, and you carry your weight around here.
Why do you want to get away from Connecticut so badly?
I just don't like it here. There's nothing to do and I don't have any friends.
Do you need me to kick some bully's ass or something?
No, I just need you to let me live with you for a little while.
We'll take college tours while you're here. I'm not letting you come down and get into trouble.
Can we see some shows too?
Sure. Broadway, concerts, whatever you want, buddy.
You're the best, Uncle Hadley.
Nothing is set in stone until your parents say yes.
