This Is Where I Leave You Chapter 9

By Jonathan Tropper

Chapter 9

  • The house is still full of visitors when they return. Hillary tries to play matchmaker for Judd, but his intentionally immature jokes scare the girls away. (Or irritate them away, but whatever.)
  • By 10:30 pm, the living room is empty and the siblings are off to bed. Unfortunately for Judd, everyone already called shotgun on the upstairs bedrooms, leaving him with basement.
  • Judd gets a voicemail from Jen. She's been calling for weeks, but he never picks up or calls her back, for obvious reasons. This time she's upset about money. Judd decides to go to the bank tomorrow and take out a few stacks of cash.
  • Day one of the shiva down—just six more to go.
