(The Fourth of July. Ace is barbecuing, enough for all the former Rangers still on Earth or in the present, save for Prince Phillip. Kendall comes outside carrying Teddy.)
Kendall: Arnie, listen to this. Teddy, who am I? Teddy: Mama. Ace: I told him on Father's Day he would start talking soon. And when he leans more words, he'll be just as smart as his mother. Kendall: Maybe he'll use that brain and design a video game. The best of both of us. Ace: Or wrote a comic book, that gets turned into a movie.
Shelby: Hey guys. Ace; Hey Shelb. Teddy just said his first word. Shelby: He did? That's so cool. Ace: Teddy, tell Aunt Shelby who's holding you. Teddy: Mama. Shelby: That's so cute.
(Wednesday morning. Ace and Kendall are just waking up.)
Kendall: Good morning. Ace: Happy birthday, babe. Kendall: Thanks, Arnie.
Ace: Teddy already gave us both a present. He slept through the night. Kendall: He did. Took him long enough. Ace: Faster than I was. Mom said I didnt start sleeping through the night until after my first birthday. More proof he's inherited your genius. Kendall: I wont argue with you on that.
(Saturday morning. Ace is giving Teddy his breakfast.)
Ace: Here comes the tupandactyl. Open the cave.
(Teddy opens his mouth, Ace puts a spoonful of food in his mouth.)
Ace: That's Daddy's good boy.
(Kendall comes in, dressed for work.)
Ace: Too bad you have to go into work today. We had such big plans. Kendall: I know. At least I was off last Sunday for Teddy's first borthday. Ace: Yeah. Kendall: Both of my boys better be good today. Ace: Dont worry. Ive got that new Mafia Definitive Edition I've been wanting to crack open. I wont be getting into any real worl trouble. And Teddy, he's got the easy life. Teddy: Mama. Kendall: I know. I'll be home by one.
(Kendall kisses Teddy on the forehead, then kisses Ace on the lips.)
Ace: I'll have lunch ready for you. Kendall: Sounds great. Have fun.
