Family Matters

Buh, Buh Buh. (Vincent Jr. is blowing spit bubbles.)
Stop it Vinny, your wetting my face. (Chanel)
Buh, Buh Buh. (Vincent Jr.)
Mommy! Vinny's blowing spit bubbles on me.  (Chanel)
Put his binky in his mouth.  (Chandra) 

Did he take the binky? (Chandra)
Yes, he's looking for you now. (Chanel)

Daddy!  (Chanel)
Hey Pumpkin!  (Vincent Sr.)

Vinny was blowing spit bubble's on me. Daddy. (Chanel)
I'm sure he didn't mean to. He's a baby remember.
Come to Daddy little man.  (Vincent Sr.)

Your early. (Chandra)
Yea, I wanted to tuck them in tonight. I've missed that every day this week.  (Vincent Sr.)
Well, let me get my kisses before you take them away. (Chandra)


I'm not ready for bed I want to watch my movie. (Chanel)
You've seen that movie twenty times. It's time for bed.  (Chandra)
But I'm not sleepy Mommy.  (Chanel)
You can watch your movie tomorrow. Give me a kiss.  (Chandra)


Twenty minutes later..........

Do you need any help? (Vincent Sr.)
Nope, all finished. Are the kids asleep? (Chandra)
There out like a light. (Vincent Sr.)
That was fast. I better go check. (Chandra) 

Happy now? (Vincent Sr.)
Don't make fun of me.  (Chandra)

It takes me forty five minutes to an hour to put them to bed.
You've been here for less then thirty minutes and there both out like a light.
How is that possible?  (Chandra)

It's a Daddy thing.  (Vincent)
There's no such thing as a Daddy thing.  (Chandra)
Yes it is.  (Vincent)
No there isn't, tell me.  (Chandra)
I can't tell you.  (Vincent)
Why not.  (Chandra)
Your not a Daddy.  (Vincent)

Down the road a piece.................

Scully?  (Taj-Ma)

Scully! Wake up. (Taj-Ma)
What?!?! (Scully)

What are you doing here alone this time of night?  (Taj-Ma)
I had some work to do.  (Scully)
What kind of work, we don't have any active cases right now.  (Taj-Ma)
It's a side project Captain.  (Scully)

Why is your side project all over my ready room?  (Taj-Ma)
I had a lot of files to go thru and I became overwhelmed.
I'll clean it up right now.  (Scully)
Get off the floor Scully. (Taj-Ma)

Scully.  (Taj)-Ma
Yes captain.  (Scully)
Are these my files?  (Taj-Ma)

Yes Captain.  (Scully)
Why are you going through my files.  (Taj-Ma)
Colonel Powell asked to see all the files we had
on any person or persons living in Graces Grove.  (Scully)

When did he ask for them?  (Taj-Ma)
A few days ago, but I wanted to review them.  (Scully)
Why?  (Taj-Ma)
I wanted to remove anything that indicated misconduct on your behalf.  (Scully)

You were given a direct order Lieutenant.  (Taj-Ma)
But.  (Scully)
But nothing, you should have delivered the files as requested.  (Taj-Ma)
If Colonel Powell see's these files you may face charges.  (Scully)

Powell asked to see these files as a formality he already has what he's looking for.  (Taj-Ma)
How do you know?  (Scully)
He didn't assign you a babysitter. And he didn't confiscate the files himself.  (Taj-Ma)
Oh Captain, are you sure?  (Scully)
Powell is a beast. If he came for my badge he's leaving with it.  (Taj-Ma)

I'll put these files back together you go home and get some rest.  (Taj-Ma)
What about Powell?  (Scully)
I'll drop the files off to him myself.  (Taj-Ma)

Scully.  (Taj-Ma)
Yes Captain.  (Scully)
It's been a pleasure working with you.  (Taj-Ma)
Same to you sir.  (Scully)

Two hours later.............

This game is unbelievable. Thanks for taping it for me. (Vincent)
Don't thank me. Thank your brother.  (Chandra)

Well, don't you two look cozy. (Taj-Ma)
Hey, Taj.  (Vincent)
Can I get you something to eat? (Chandra)
No thanks, I'm going to grab a Gatorade don't mind me. (Taj-Ma)

Hey, where are you going?  (Vincent)
I'm going to bed, you go talk to your brother. (Chandra)
He's fine. (Vincent)
No he isn't. Go talk to him. (Chandra)

Thanks for taping the game for me.  (Vincent)
No problem, how was work?  (Taj-Ma)
It was good. What have you been up to? (Vincent)
Nothing much.  (Taj-Ma)


Chandra said you had a visitor today.  (Vincent)
She's more of a pain then a visitor.  (Taj-Ma)
Was it Nikki London?  (Vincent)
Yea, why?  (Taj-Ma)

I thought you were going to ask her to marry you. (Vincent)
I did, she turned my down.  (Taj-Ma)
Why? (Vincent)
I don't know and I don't care.  (Taj-Ma)

I thought you were serious about her. (Vincent)
I was she wasn't end of story. (Taj-Ma)
Why are you being so touchy? (Vincent)
I'm not. She doesn't want to marry me. So we don't need to talk about her.  (Taj-Ma)
I'm worried about you Bro.  (Vincent)
Stop worrying. Nikki is a non issue.
She broke my heart my niece and nephew seem to be putting it back together.
My heart will be mended before your house is finished.  (Taj-Ma)


  1. I LOVE THIS FAMILY! You did an excellent job on the police scene, office and all. I love the way you posed Taj-ma so realistically. Why is he so calm about being turned down and everything?

    1. I love the new family too Grandmommy. Graces grove was ready for some new blood. Taj is a thinker Nikki knocked him off his game he needs to figure out how to get is self back in check.

  2. So the mystery lady was your sister in law! :) I hope Taj-ma does not lose his job, perhaps a little unpaid time off will straighten him out. I love little Vinny, I have been trying to buy that Tommy for some time now.

    1. Taj loves Nikki he wants to spend the rest of his life with her she really hurt him and she doesnt even know it. He will not be seeing another woman anytime soon. I just opened the box with that tommy doll. Did you look on ebay fo him?

  3. Whew, I'm glad Taj-Ma wasn't being a scumbag when it comes to Nikki. Love the new family.

    1. Taj is a wone woman man so no worries Vanessa. That new family is cute isnt it.

  4. I think the new residents are great, the scene with Scully also (the decors are again fantastic!), great job!!!

    1. Scully is very loyal to Taj. I bet he didnt even know until that moment.

  5. Your sets are nice as always. Chandra and Vincent make a nice couple. I must have missed something with Nikki and Taj Ma. He seems so cold.

    1. I think Taj had decided to let the marriage thing go until he found out about Aaron. He now feels Nikki was playing him. He needs to talk to her about it instead of airing her dirty laundry.
