That’s the overriding message at the heart of the hilarious first clip from the upcoming sequel, Daddy’s Home 2, which you can watch exclusively above.

Paramount’s follow-up to its 2015 holiday hit introduces the daddies of daddies Brad (Will Ferrell) and Dusty (Mark Wahlberg) — and, as played by John Lithgow and Mel Gibson, respectively, they’re living proof that the apple doesn’t fall from the tree.

In the scene here, the foursome is on a holiday cabin retreat with the kids when the nightmare begins: someone’s fiddled with the thermostat, leaving the guys in sweat-drenched states of panic.

“The thermostat is a sacred covenant,” Brad bewilderedly proclaims. “I can’t believe we’re even talking about this. This is MADNESS.”

The madness continues when Daddy’s Home 2 hits theaters Nov. 10.
