"Wait, wait. Here comes the best part." Ariel perked up, as she pointed at the TV. All of a sudden, the picture on the TV moved from Abbey running down the soccer field, about to kick the ball, to the grass. Moments later, it returned to Abbey, who was standing up, brushing the grass off of her pants.

"Crap, we missed it." Brennan exclaimed.

"JOSH!" Jed growled. "How many times do we have to look at the grass?"

"Well Mr. President, I never claimed to be a very good cameraman."

"Ain't that the truth." CJ said with a sour tone.

"Look, look." Brennan exclaimed with excitement. "It's about to come up."

"What's that?" Jed asked.

"Where I steel the ball from mom and kick the winning goal."

"Didn't she fall then, too?" Jason asked from his spot on the floor.

"Yeah, she did..." Ariel trailed off.

"Josh," Jed paused the video tape. "Tell me now, if I'm about to get another view of the grass. And if I am, you might want to leave right now."

Sly as a fox, Josh had already crept over to the door by the time that Jed looked over at him.

"Crap. You are a crappy cameraman." Brennan complained. "You missed my winning goal."

"Not to mention mom making a fool of herself... again." Jason's voice perked up again.

"Actually, I think you are a wonderful cameraman." Abbey joyously proclaimed.

"Josh." Jed called.


"You're fired."

"Yes, Sir."

"Mr. President, don't you think you're being a little harsh on him? I mean, it's just a soccer game." Abbey chimed in.

"Yes well, I was looking forward to seeing..." Jed trailed off, realizing if he finished, he could be jeopardizing his health.

"Seeing what?" She insisted he continue.

"Seeing Brennan kick the winning goal in the soccer game." Jed quickly came back.

"Nice save." Sam spoke.

"Am I still fired?" Josh asked, stepping back into the room.

"No, but I'm considering other punishments for you, as we speak."

"Such as?"

"I haven't made my mind up yet, Josh. But you can probably count on a history lesson about the game of soccer, and perhaps even on the history of the video camera."
