The Retirement Party 3
That's Phoenix for you. I don't even know my neighbors. They're all retired people. All they do is stay home.
But aren't there lots of activities for people like you?
Sure, but it's not easy to make new friends. To tell you the truth, retirement can get a little boring.
Don't say that! Here I am... about to retire.
You'll get used to it... eventually. So, tell me, what are your plans?
Well, we're hoping to go back to Mexico for Christmas to spend some time with our relatives.
That's nice. Did I show you pictures of me in front of my condominium?
Wow. That's some swimsuit, Alice.
Hello. Mama, Papa, you remember Rebecca?
Of course. How are you, Rebecca?
Very good, thanks.
It's so good to see you again.
It's a pleasure to be here.
This is Alice Goodman, an old friend. She came all the way from Arizona to be with us tonight.
This is Rebecca Casey.
Nice to meet you.
Hello, Rebecca. I knew this guy when he was just a little boy. He liked girls even back then.
OK. We'd better go before they start telling stories about my childhood.
So, what do you think?
Very attractive, but a little too skinny.
I think it's time for Alberto to settle down, have a family.
You women are terrible.
What ever happened to Patricia?
Pa-tri-ci-a? They still go out once in a while. I was hoping they would get married... she's Mexican-American, you know. But not such luck.
How old is this Rebecca, anyway?
I'm not sure. Urn-maybe twenty-nine.
Alber had better make up his mind fast if he's gonna have kids.
You're right. I would like to have more grandchildren.
You have Alex. You're lucky.
Yes. But you can never have too many grandchildren.
So... Uh... Rebecca and Ramon are friends?
Yes. He got her a job at Alex's after-school program.
Looks like he's quite fond of her.
No, they're just friends. She's Alex's teacher. That's all.
Don't be too sure.
