Episode #114 "Vacation"

 
SYNOPSIS:
 

It’s Spring break, and Alicia asks Tracy if maybe they could take a little family trip. It’s not a good time, says Tracy. There’s a lot going on at the shop. It’s never a good time, says Alicia, and besides she’s not talking about a big vacation, just a little trip upstate. Tracy protests that he owns his own business; he has to make sacrifices. But at work the guys give him grief; he desperately needs a vacation, they tell him. That night, Tracy announces to the family that he rented a cabin upstate on Lake George. He’s taking them on a fishing vacation. The next day, they arrive at the cabin. It’s lovely and cozy. Tracy immediately takes out his cell phone to call Spoon. Alicia reminds him of his promise to keep the cell phone turned off while they’re away. Jimmy finds some pinecones but has no idea what they are. What do you do with them, Jimmy wants to know. Drop one in your underpants drawer, suggests Tracy. Your underpants will smell like Christmas. Tracy takes the boys fishing. They’re using worms and having no luck. A man fishing nearby with his granddaughter suggests they use lures, but Tracy says that using anything other than worms is cheating. They catch one tiny fish and take it back for Alicia to cook for dinner. She says she’ll make some hamburgers as a side dish. Suddenly a raccoon bounds through the door, jumps on the table and starts eating the fish. Tracy moves toward the animal. It hisses, and Tracy screams. The raccoon bolts. That evening Tracy and Alicia are relaxing on the sofa when his cell phone rings. It’s Spoon. A couple of ambulances have come in. It’s a big job, but Spoon doesn’t want Tracy to come back. He was just calling to tell him the good news. But Tracy really wants to go back. The next day he pretends to have poison ivy as an excuse to go back to work. Alicia sees through him. Tracy can go back, but they’re staying! By he time Tracy gets back to the shop, the first ambulance is already done. Alicia takes the boys fishing. It’s not about catching fish, she tells them, it’s about enjoying themselves outdoors. Alicia takes off one of her earrings to use as a lure. Jimmy loves the idea of fishing with bling bling. They go back to the cabin with a stringer full of fish. Tracy calls from the shop and hears what a great time they’re having. Suddenly it doesn’t seem right to be separated from his family. He drives the ambulance back to the cabin. He doesn’t need to be at work, he tells Alicia. He needs to be with his family.
