Love After Love (2017) Script

What was the question?

Um..

I mean, what's happy?

Really, I mean, it's..

...so arbitrary.

I... I'm... I'm..

Look, we had a fight so I'm not, like, "Oh..

...I'm happy."

But I'm happy.

I like Rebecca.

She feels like family.

Sometimes I feel like she validates how I feel about the world.

I think she's smart and that makes me feel smart.

But..

...sometimes it feels..

...it's all too clean.

You know?

But I'm happy.

Are you?

Sometimes I'm happy.

Can't always be happy.

That's true.

What makes you happy?

I just love my kids, you know.

I do.

Seeing you, I wanna see you..

...you know, I wanna see you happy and fulfilled.

Just love my boys. What can I say?

And your dad's pretty good in bed too.

I need you to teach me this.

Nah. I've got a blanket for you.

I could do that part.

There we go.

Alright, thank you.

Guys, this is Paul, he's an old friend.

This is Alex, and Graham.

Really old. I'm sorry.

This is John. Hey, welcome, my friend.

No, check that out.

Hey.

You hiding out?

I thought I had an hour.

You had it.


John.

Nice to meet you. Hi.

Hi. Emilie.

Thank you so much.

You mad at me? No.

Are you mad at me?

I just wanna finish this. Okay.

Are you mad at me?

Oh, my God, you're intolerable.

I love you, old man.

Uh, I love you more than all the other old men.

Can I ask you something?

Does he, um, does he do soliloquies when he's going down on you?

What are you asking?

She's fucking what's-his-face the Duke of Athens over here.

I did not say that! He's a freshman. And?

I don't tolerate freshmen. Since when?

You want wine? Glenn, Glenn, when do you start?

Sorry? When do you actually start?

Immediately. I'll be up there on Monday.

Wow. Wow.

Will you commute? If my wife has her way.

Glenn's afraid that his marriage is over.

I'm not laughing. Uh, I'm taking this.

See, this is his thing. Yes!

What's my thing?

Before you do something selfish, you, like, broadcast it.

You think it makes it okay.

We're in love, so we're allowed to say mean things to each other, I guess.

You're showing me tits.

There're these pictures I made.

You've got tits? Look.

It's fine.

You know, it's getting dark. Okay.

Should probably get 'em home.

When are you going to grow up?

Did you have any?

Have it, it's good.

Quit now, James.

So now he's affectionate.

She'd run the other designer off.

That's not true. Yes, it is.

Glenn, it's not true. She took another job.

She went to, I don't know where.

UT, I think. She resigned.

Yeah, she resigned. Her assistant was fucking her boss What else is she gonna do?

No, it's not. So, what, it's true?

Oh, my God. Chris. It's true.

No, no, it's not. I went out with him once.

One time. I was an idiot.

I thought that, you know he was being professional.

When she came along, I couldn't sign the papers fast enough.

Oh, how romantic. You..

You would've been on marriage, what?

Your marriage number two?

Wait, wasn't that your, uh, open marriage?

Yeah, she was a swinger!

No, I wasn't! That's what she said. Is that not what she said?

Being in an open marriage is not the same thing as being a swinger.

Close enough!

Three marriages.

Pear? I don't like pears.

No, these are, um, poached pears.

They're not normal.

Great.

Do you know what poached pears are? Yes.

Try one.

What? Nothing. Go ahead.

I, I'm just offering them pears. I see that.

"All days are nights to see..

"...till I see thee.

"And nights bright days when dreams do show thee me.

"When most I wink, then do mine eyes best see..

"...for all the day..

...they view things unrespected."

Thank you. Thank you.

Beautiful, Glenn. Cheers.

Cheers. Cheers.

One more time, dad.

Leave him alone.


Stop it.

I'll bust your butt.

Come on, then. Don't think I won't.

Okay. That sounds terrible, Glenn.

Yeah, he fell asleep in the bath.

I don't feel anything.

I just can't talk. Is that true?

Let's go.

That's the only way he can get any rest. Stop it.


Hey. Thanks.

Hi. I've been circling for half an hour.

I didn't see you.

I tried calling. You didn't pick up.

I, I don't have my phone.

Well, you could've just parked and come in.

Well, you said you were gonna wait outside.

It's good to see you too.

Okay. Lift him up.

Alright, there you go. There you go.

That's it, dad. Okay.

One, two, three.

Ah!

Glenn, this is so you can breathe easier.

I want you to try and breathe through your nose.

Okay, hold on.

Here you go.

It's okay, it's okay. This is gonna help you breathe.

It's alright.

I'll get them. Okay, sweetie.

Here we go.

If you can lift after this. Just wait.

One second. Alright. Hold on.

Okay, now.

Watch his head.

Okay, back.

Really gentle. There we go.

Good job, honey.

It's almost done. There you go.

We're not gonna.. There you go.

It's okay, sweetheart.


Do you want me to get you up or do you wanna sleep?

Mm..

You asked me to get you up.

Just five more minutes.

I came here to support you but it feels like you don't want me around.

You can't answer me? I'm, I'm sleeping.

Okay, we've got him here.

Okay, just give me a second, please.

Alright. Okay.

Back him up just a bit. Please, just a bit.

Just a bit. There you go.

Are you alright? Is that good? Yeah.

There we are. Okay.

Alright. Okay, you can sit him down.

There. We shouldn't be in here.

It's okay. He's embarrassed.

He's just sitting there.

It's humiliating. Let's just wait. Just...

Suzanne? Oh, thank you.

Wait, he's falling. Hang on.

There we are. It's okay.

There we go.

Hold on. There you go.

Alright.

Here we are.

I think that's it, okay?

Alright. You ready? Come back up.


...a ride around the back roads.

We always had stuff. They had an ice cream place.

They hadn't had that before they'd come home.

They liked to talk with us, and we'd walk.

When you'd go away and let them go away and have a good time.

Oh, wait, wait. What?

I'm gonna, I'm gonna cum if we keep going.

Cum. Cum. I want you to.

You don't wanna finish?

Oh! Oh!

Oh. Oh. Oh.


Hmm..

Good? Yeah.

...fucking bed like an animal! Just stop, stop for a...

What happened? Just, it's.. Wait.

What happened? She restrained him.

What are you smiling at?

Just.. Chris, that's enough. Chris. Stop that.

I was only trying to make him comfortable. I'm...

I'm not an idiot! Chris!

Enough! I'm not making it up!

Enough! Please!

I'm sorry. No.

I'm sorry. Okay? No, that's okay.

You know, you can go, I mean, I, I really appreciate it and..

...thank you so much for everything, and, uh, you know I'll ta... I'll talk to him. I'll talk to him.


How's the wine?

Anybody want a little more?

That white's really good. The white is good.

Isn't that good? The red's good too.

Hey, do you want some?

You're inconsolable.

Huh?

Like an infant. Can we not say mean things?

Inconsolable little infant.

I'm not doing this, Nick.

You're inconsolable. Can you stop?

You have determined that you're being ignored so you behave like this, like an infant?

And so I ignore you. What am I supposed to do?

I think we should go to bed. No!

You are not the center of anyone's attention right now.

And you shouldn't be.

Full fucking stop, Rebecca.


Ma.

Hey. Hey, we're gonna, um..

Sorry.

You're off? Yeah.

I'm sorry I can't stay longer.

Oh, stop. We'll see you soon.

See you at home. Yeah.

Wait.


You'll wanna pick out some clothing that Glenn would be comfortable in wearing.

He may have been very involved and already picked out his clothing, I don't know.

Yes, he was very involved.

And then lastly, we'll follow up in a day or two and see how you're coping and how you're doing.

Um.. Well, thank you.

And if there's any questions, you know, feel free to ask me.

I don't think so.


Hi, hi. Hello.

Hello. Hi, I'm Suzanne.

I'm Lauren. Nice to meet you. Yeah.

Can I take your stuff? Oh, thank you.

I'm okay. Thank you so much.

Hi, I'm Chris. Lauren.

So nice to meet you. Nice to meet you.

Thanks.

Hey, what's your name? Tia.

Well, hello. Come on. Come on in, come on in.

Hey. You got here. Hi. Yeah. Yeah.

You look great. You look beautiful.

Welcome. Hi. Oh, hello. Hi.

Oh, hi. Can I introduce you..

Hey, it's me, your brother. I know who you are.

Uh, mom, this is, uh, Greg and Margo.

Oh, hello. So nice to meet you. Nice to meet you.

Suzanne. Yeah, it was a pleasure.

That's me. Emilie.

This is for... Oh, I got you these. Oh, sorry.

Thank you. You shouldn't have. Oh, thank you. So nice.

Hello there. Come on in, we'll have some drinks.

Oh, thank you.

Excuse me.

Could I interrupt your conversations for just a moment?

Uh, it might be timely for me to propose a toast.

Uh, we're gathered here not just to celebrate the holidays but to celebrate the engagement of my darling youngest daughter Emilie and Nick.

And it fills Margo and I both with a great deal of joy to have Nick and his family, Suzanne and Chris here along with our friends.

Let's raise our glasses to... marriage long-lived and fruitful.

Hear, hear.

And to my mother.

Hear, hear. Cheers.

Cheers, mom. Cheers.

My pleasure, Nick. Thanks, dad.

We moved one step ahead.

What.. Oh, shit. Whoa!

Nice one.

Oh, I'm so sorry.

It happens. It happens.

And what about you, what do you do?

I work at the college with Suzanne in the, in the theatre department.

Oh, interesting.

I... I really work in th... this marketing for the plays that they do.

Also a little bit of consulting for the kids when they're getting ready to go out into the, the real world.

Uh-huh. I used to be an actress myself.

And Chris, what do you do? What kind of work? Oh. Me?

I'm, uh..

I write whatever I want that no one will want to read.

Like novels or.. Hmm, uh, yeah.

But, very, very short.

Oh, come on, dad. You were such a hippie back in the day.

It's the shop, it's like coming up off Craigslist.

We didn't celebrate our weddings by getting goofy on mushrooms.

It's you.

No. Really? People do this.

I shouldn't be laughing.

I think it's a good.. Sorry.

...bonding experience and to bring the family together, I don't know.

I don't think it's funny.

No, I think it's.. Okay. I get.. I'm excited.

You were excited. I am excited.

Okay. I get that it's, it's unusual.

But, that's okay.

We're okay with people..

...being confused by it.

I mean, I think the..

What are these?

These are Italian wedding cookies.

Well, can I have one? Yeah.

Do you guys work here?

Here? Like, all the time?

Uh, we work for the catering company, if that's what you mean.

Yeah.

Good.

♪ Feel so nice right on.. ♪

I haven't even seen your ring.

There isn't one.

What, you haven't got a ring?

No, we got earrings. Show 'em off, will you?

That's so pretty.

She told me what she wanted, we went together.

Oh.

Doesn't she look pretty? Stop.

Right, mom? She's beautiful.

Great. See?

I didn't see the earrings. Hmm.

Sweet. Yeah.

Nicholas. Hey, man.

Hey, man. What's up?

I want to tell you that..

...I'm proud of you.

And, I love you.

Okay. Okay, Chris.

And, uh, and I'm just really proud of you.

I know. I just..

Thanks, man. Thank you.

I love you. Thank you.

You're welcome.

Jesus Christ! Oh!

Ah!

Are you okay? Ow!

Alright. Nicholas has got me.

Okay.

Oh, wow. Take it easy. Okay.

You had a little fall there. Yeah.

You're good.

Because he's the good one. Alright.

I think we got it. You're the good one.

Uh-huh. You can't hear enough of it.

You're the good one.

You're good too. Sometimes. Aww, I'm okay.

You wanna sit down? I don't wanna sit down.

That's a bad idea.

You wanna lie down? I wanna... pee.

I just wanna pee and then it's fine.

I'm gonna go pee. You need a hand with that?

I am so sorry.

I'm so sorry.

You okay, buddy? I'm... I'm... I'm okay.

Yeah?

Then, they.. That's..

It's good.

Someone's gonna carry him home tonight.

You okay, man?

Chris, what are you doing?

Chris!

Stop it. Jesus! Are you..

Get outta here! Damn it!

What are you doing?

Oh, shit. Mom!

Okay, I'm going!

I am sorry to you. Sit down.

I'm so sorry. Whoa!

I... I'm...

Uh, it was like a dog food commercial.

Oh, no.

It was a dog food commercial and, um, I was a..

Wet or dry? Um..

Didn't get that far. That was in the callback.

You didn't get that far? Yeah, they had, like, plastic dog food.

And I was, like, a dog owner and I was supposed to be with my dog, like

"You like it? I like it."

And, um, it was so humiliating, right?

'Cause it was, like, plastic dog food.

Yeah. Was there a real dog?

No. It was a fucking shaggy puppet dog.

And I went.. I slumped over visibly. I was just like..

And he put his hand on my shoulder and he was like

"I know, man. I know."

Oh, man, Chris. And then, that's it. That was..

Were you supposed to make a face, like, you didn't like it?

Or you liked it? No, you were supposed to like it.

It was, like, "Can you give me one where you just really love this stuff?"

I don't understand this commercial.

Yeah, it doesn't make sense. The commercial is...

Yeah, it's their fault. They're a bunch of idiots.

I came in as a true artist.

It sounds like it's actually a snack for dogs and, and humans.

I read the proposal, but for the benefit of my colleagues here can you explain, um, how you see it as a hybrid of memoir and, and history of Shepard Stuyvesant?

Uh, well, it intersperses chapters that are taken from my own life.

Yet I think, there's also a historical and critical element that, um..

...that really, I think, kinda marries itself to the memoir section in a way that's unique and I think will speak to readers.

Do you think it will upset..

They're all their life? I think so.

And I think that I'm trying to speak to that line.

You're.. Are you straddling that line?

I think I'm on the line.

You're on the line? I am the line.

You are the line. Okay.

And besides yourself, what other characters feature in the book?

Well, there's historical figures, so there's James Weeks who founded the Weeksville settlement.

Um, there's my roommates, who..

Um, I don't know, it's really a.. That's a Diego question.

Or Rebecca. She's in..

Uh..

Well, by day's end at least.

No, I... I... I like it, too. I just..

No, but that's... that's what I'm saying. I like it too.

I just can't go any further until we have a... a... proper conversation about it.

No, with everybody.

Knock, knock. Hey! Nick said you were here.

He's stuck on the phone. Oh. Come in, come in.

Honestly, I... I... I don't even care if it is. That's your problem.

Yeah, I heard that.

All set?

Okay.

Merry Christmas. Merry Christmas.


Suzanne, they're ready for you downstairs.

Okay, I'll be right down.

"Yes, we shall live, Uncle Vanya.

"We shall live all through the endless procession of days

"ahead of us and through the long evenings.

"We shall bear patiently the burdens that fate imposes on us.

"We shall work without rest for others, both now and when we are old.

"And when our final hour comes..

"...we shall meet it humbly..

"...and there, beyond the grave we will say that we have known tears and suffering ..."

Okay. very good.

Um, Thank you, Ashleigh.

Uh, that's, uh..

Who... who wants to go first?

Suzanne? I have nothing to say.

Is that good? No.

O... okay. Is that all you're gonna say?

We've done this once a semester for three years, Ashleigh.

Done what?

This is not the outfit of someone who takes herself or her work seriously.

Oh, come on, Suzanne. Excuse me.

I take this very, very seriously.

And I'm trying really hard.

Oh, Lord, help me.

Why are you so mad?

If you want me to wear a sweater, I will.

I don't want you to do anything.

Why are you yelling at me? I'm not yelling...

Yes, you are.

You're yelling at me. I'm not yelling at you.

I'm trying to help you.

Okay, um..

Suzanne, I think your point's been made. Scott! Stop it.

Let's just move on. Karen. What?

Stop undermining me. Oh, okay.

Thank you.

I'm sorry, Karen.

It's okay. Go ahead.

I... I don't think the outfit is, is that bad.

If we're approaching this practically, we have to be open and... and supportive of the possibility that, in some cases and certainly for a beginning actor, especially for a woman there is a certain value placed on physical appearance...

I don't know what I'm doing here if I can't expect support from my colleagues.

Oh, I'm not dismissing your point...

I hate the way that you are speaking to me.

Either of you! Fuck! Suzanne.

Fuck! Suzanne.

It's alright. It's alright.

It's alright.

Sorry. It's okay. Really.

Crazy, but it's okay.

I said, "One more tantrum and that's it."

So..

...sure enough, 10 minutes in he starts going off on Jane...

Were you in on the cooking at all? No?

I just said, I stopped the meeting and I said, "Excuse me."

And I said, you know, "Tim, can we go out in the hall?"

We walked out, about five feet down and I just... just, I may have said a word to him but I swiveled back in the room and I locked the door.

And I just continued the meeting.

We had a pretty long agenda.

You know, we got the..

How we doing tonight, folks? Alright.

How are you tonight? 102, right straight through, please.

Okay. At the end of their life.

Sorry.

Foul! Foul! Foul!

You're outta your mind. You're outta your mind.

No! Come on, get your act together!

Defense! Defense!

Oh, the kiss cam!

The kiss cam.

Maybe it'll be..

♪ We are we are Washington High ♪♪

It's not bad. It's good. Well.. Pretty good.

It's rich, you know.

It's got a lotta hops.

Yeah? Yeah, it does.

No doubt about it.

I'm not a beer connoisseur or anything, but..

You can say somethin'.

What?

We can talk, you know.

I don't... I don't know what to say.

I feel like I'm, I'm havin' an affair.


Hey. I'm, uh, brewing some tea. You want some?

Yeah, that sounds nice. Okay.

You can, you can take your coat off.

Oh, I'm gonna go soon.

Hey.

Hey. You're here.

I just walked in.

What's going on? You repainting?

I told you that.

No, you didn't.

Well, I'm repainting.

I thought Emilie was coming.

She's on the phone.

She booked a commercial.

Why are these here?

Ma? What?

Did you hear me? Yes, Nicholas, I heard you.

Well, don't just throw my things away, okay?

I live here too. You do not live here.

"Lived." I said "lived."

Come on.


We made coffee.

Thank you.

Do you want some? No thanks.

This is fine, right?

Of course.

Who was it? A package.

For me? What is it?

Ah, feels like books.

Did you order books?

Is this for now? It is if you want it.

Um..

I got a letter from Rebecca the other day.

It must be hard on her havin' you in the office.

No. We don't really interact.

Our departments are separate now.

Still.

It's actually easier now than it was before.

What does that mean?

Just the whole thing was such an effort.

We were always trying.

Not in the beginning.

In the beginning, you were in love I don't think so.

I was there.

Okay.

If she didn't return your calls, you were out of your mind.

You were distraught. Okay.

I was never distraught. You were obsessed.

That's your word. I wanted her to love me.

That's not the same as falling in love.

It was like a goal.

Rebecca was a person of real consequence.

Okay. What?

What? What do you mean "what?"

Why do you wanna do this now?

Why do you always fucking do this?

Jesus. "A person of real consequence?"

What the fuck is that?

You mean as in Emilie is not that? Excuse me.

Who said anything about Emilie? Oh, please.

I didn't. I don't even know Emilie. Okay.

So don't try to weasel some opinion out of me.

If I want to say somethin' about Emilie, I'll say it.


And this is the living room.

Oh. Oh, the ceilings.

Pretty great, huh? Great light.

Such good light. We love it.

Oh, those bay windows.

Yeah, we're really lucky.

Do you have the backyard?

Yeah. We share it.

Share it? Uh-huh.

But still. Very nice.

Do your... kids ask where you go?

They're not really interested.


Sure, now. I know.

Do you hate me tonight?

What?

Do you hate me?

Of course not.

Do you hate me?

I'm very hateable. No.

Then there's no hate.

Hope I hate anybody.

I can't stick it out. Is that okay?

Mm. There's nothing to do now.

I'm just re-reading her emails.

She's an idiot. You want me to call Paul?

No. Wait, are you angry?

It's the second time she's pushed. She's being a shit.

Yeah. She's just embarrassed.

She'll send you a long apology email tomorrow.

I left some Szechwan in the fridge.

You hear me?

Are you leaving now? Uh-huh.

I'll walk down with you. I called a car.

Are you taking the train?

Yeah, traffic's gonna be shitty.

Okay. Well, I'll see you later.

Night.

Hi. Thanks.

Do you have the address?

Whoa, whoa. I'm sorry.

What are you doing? Whoa!

I just, uh, I realized I don't have anywhere to be.

So I thought I could just ride with you and..

Drop you off and take the car home, if that's okay.

Okay. Yeah. Great.

I mean, we should probably have an answer if we're goin' in the morning anyway, right?

Uh-huh.

What?

I.. I don't know, it's just..

I'm having a... I know.

You know what?

Like..

...like, emotional spins, right?

Emotional spins? Yeah.

I don't even know what that is.

So, um.. Goodbye, Nick.

Alright. See you tomorrow.

Goodnight, Nicholas.

Uh, Becca, just wait a second.

Nick, this is weird. No, it's not.

I'll see you tomorrow. Just go home.

I just, I need to use the bathroom.

Whose bathroom? I'll be fast.

No, you can't come up. Why not?

Nick, go.

Why are you being like..

I'm.. We're just talking.

What, I can't talk to you now?

Okay, fine, fine, but don't leave like this.

I'm not leaving like anything. I'm going to my apartment.

You can't just stop for a second?

Go home, Nick.

You're making this worse.

Okay, come on. Becca.

Come on! Rebecca! Oh, my God! Enough!

What, you're just gonna leave like this?

Come on, let's go. Nice, Rebecca!

Real fuckin' nice! Nice job!

Hey, come on. Oh, fuck off!

...old people next to, or, like, at the same table as other people, and it was kind of a disaster.

I'd have like hives up and down my arms that's what..

That's what they gave me the Benadryl for.

Yeah. Um, yeah.

I didn't last too long there, I loved it.

I stole their muffins. Do you remember them?

I think that's a classic server move to steal all muffins.

All muffins should be always stolen.

Yeah.

That's crazy, though, so when..

...when you were, like, serving people, you had, like, hives on your...

I don't know what it was. I think I was just allergic to something.

It wasn't the cleanest..

...diner experience.

You should have seen the place we stayed.

She wanted to move in. Oh, it was unbelievable.

Old original architecture with this beautiful balcony.

You know, it just feels like you're in another country.

God, that smells good.

Make some room over there.

Here, let's just put that down there.

Yeah, there.. Yeah, there are all those weird people who just don't..

May I? I ju.. I... I..

Don't use money, I guess. Thanks.

I don't know.

You decide, Karen.

Mm-hmm. I have friends who live there.

Terrific music.

Michael loves jazz.

Always have.

I mean, Coltrane, Monk, you know.

Uh, I even like bad jazz, really.

It was so.. It was just so funny, you know, he... he... he..

We would go looking for these out-of-way places.

He would go up to people on the street.

I didn't want to get trapped in the touristy places.

You know..

I mean, you're in New Orleans.

I wanted the real thing.

Do you know a man who has been in love with only one woman?

There certainly are such men.

Are they amongst your friends?

Tell me his name.

I have no name to tell you but I do believe that there are men capable of loving..

...but once.

How often can a true man love?

What are you trying to find out?

Ask. I'll answer it.

Am I right to stay in the convent?

No.

Cool, right? Yeah, I liked it.

I've never been backstage before.

Oh, there he is.

Oh. Matthew. Hey.

Congratulations. Oh, thank you!

You were just wonderful. Thank you. I think it went pretty well.

So do I. Matthew, this is my friend Michael.

Michael, this is Matthew.

He played Perdican. Of course.

Hey! Hey!

You were awesome. Thank you!

Ashleigh, you were fantastic. It was great.

Oh, thank you. Hi, I'm Ashleigh.

Hi. Michael. Hi, nice to meet you. Hi.

Yes!

I thought I had them in this pocket.

What, your phone? No, my keys.

My house key. Oh, no.

You lost them? Oh, got it.

Um..


Hey.

Why are you up? It's morning.

Where were you?

Oh, I just, uh, took Karen home.

How is she?

Nicholas.

How is Karen?

Uh, I don't know what you mean.

You don't?

She's alive.

Come on, Max.

Uh, what time did you guys get in?

Ma? You're not gonna answer me?

What does it matter what time we got in?

Why are you pissed?

Well, good morning.

You smell.

Okay.

Well, I'm going to go to bed.


I did that. Yeah.

I loved that job. You did?

Yeah, I actually did. Like..

Let's see. Let's give you this one.

Hey, Miss Floy.

Mm!

Look who it is. Hey.

I'll take that. Is this free?

Yeah, yeah. I'm gonna use this.

That's just orange juice there.

Aren't you hot?

You're wearing a sweater too.

Hey.

You want some juice? Yeah.

Perfect.

Um, silverware?

Oh, this, this drawer right here.

Last night..

What do you think of this guy?

It should be the other way around.

Michael? No.

Um..

I don't know. He's nice enough, right?

I feel bad. No, you're fine.

And if that's the real question or not.

If it is..

I don't know how to behave.

Chris, can you get these? Yeah.

I can do it. Chris!

Ma, I'm doing it. What?

He's doing it.

You hear her?

What?

Oh, who needs some coffee?

I'll have one. I have some.

We should say something.

I think... No, no, I think I'm gonna say something.

No, no, no, no. It's fine.

What? No, no, no, no. Just a little.

I just want to say a little something in honor of our new guest.

Happy birthday, Michael.

We are very happy to have you here.

Very happy.

Thank you.

And, of course, to, uh..

To little, uh, uh, Zachary.

Um, who's also here.

To Michael and..

...to, um..

...this..

...special..

...thing that's happening right before our eyes.

Even though..

...we're desperately trying not to notice, it is.

And I think it's right that we celebrate that.

So, to Michael and mom.

Cheers.

Cheers. Cheers.

Hear, hear.

You wanna say something, Michael?

You don't have to say anything.

I think you're doing great.

Thank you.

Nothing?

Would you like me to? Yeah.

Sure. Uh..

This has gotta be really hard.

Ah..

I thank you for welcoming me here.

Uh, however you have.

It can't have been easy. I understand that.

And it had to call on some reserves.

And I had a great dinner.

And you were very nice to my guy.

So, thank you.

Hear, hear.

To Michael.

To Michael. To Michael.

Cheers. Cheers.

It's hard to know, you know, what to..

It's right to ce... to celebrate it in..

...some fucking way, but it's..

I don't know what to say.

You did great. Thank you.

It's not like there's, uh..

It's not like there's a card for..

...good luck with your new relationship older people.

That's enough, Nicholas.

It's hard to know, isn't it? It's hard to know what to say.

Stop!

Thank you.


Zach, uh, you wanna help me clear?


You're so selfish. Nick.

You're so self... Nick!

Shut up.

Where are you.. Wait. Wait!

Let her go! Nick. You should've asked.

You should've asked! Don't do that to her!

Dick! You should have asked!

Ah! Nicholas! Nicholas, no!

Hey, hey, hey, hey! Come on!

Nicholas! Ugh!

Come on! Come on! Get off him, Nick!

Get off him! Goddamn it!

Oh!

Jackass.


And, um, he comes along and he..

...he's got his own tricks.

He's got a few of his own tricks up his sleeve.

I mean, he can walk on water.

He can turn water into wine.

Ain't he? Uh, you get what I'm saying?

I think everything he did was kind of a step down from the old man.

Like..

...water into wine?

Congratulations, that's a great trick.

Um... you... he, your dad made both of those out of hydrogen and oxygen which he also made..

...out of shit that he made out of shit that he made that we don't even know about yet.

Um, okay, so Jesus multiplied a bunch of bread and fishes.

Like, that's a great trick if your dad is David Blaine.

But, um..

...that ain't shit when we're talking about wormholes, and antimatter.

That's like, that's some Frank Sinatra, Jr. shit right there is what I call that.

That's not even..

That's not even Julian Lennon.

That's like a Sean Lennon body of work.

"Hey, Dad." "What?"

"Um, uh, I make cabinets."

"I want.. You want an armoire?"

"I created light."

"Back off, moron."

I don't know, I just feel, I lost my dad so I feel a little..

It's hard to live up to him.

Maybe that's coloring my thoughts right now.

Uh, apple falls far from the tree sometimes.

I did, um, I did, I just lost my dad.

Uh, my father passed away.

That's something that Jesus never had to deal with.

One of the perks of dying at 33.

When your dad's immortal anyway, like..

He didn't have to go through this.

Or like, sell a house ever.

Jesus never had to do that.

And I feel like, oh, if my dad just died I'm starting to worry about myself 'cause I've heard that kind of thing runs in the family, you know?

Anybody else lose anybody recently?

Yeah, it sucks. My dad, gone.

Just like, that whole stick figure just wiped off the back of my minivan.

That must be a sad job down at the gas station.

That takes an auto detailer with a certain finesse to be able to, like, scrape the family member off the back of the..

...van.

Um, but you know, it's tough.

It's tough when you go through losing a loved one.

Someone you grew up with someone you admire or hate or..

...hatemire.

Um, and then, like, you... you you put them away forever.

Put 'em away? What? I don't think that's the right terminology.

Yep.

Put that away.

That's the wo.. I don't underst..

When you have the ashes, what are we saving them for?

Uh, it's a bit like, it's a ho..

It's like, when you save ornaments for Christmas but it's not every year.

Every 50 years, they, they get up and dance like Tinker Bell.

I don't understand why we save the ashes.

I couldn't convince 'em to get rid of 'em.

Um, but you know..

...you lose somebody and then you're like, "Well, what next?"

And you've, we've all lost somebody or..

If you haven't, then you're gonna lose a whole lot all at once, I guess.

Sorry.

Um, but then you're like, "Oh, okay.

"This is sad, this is very sad primarily.

And then what? What's next?"

And... nothing. Nothing happens.

Everybody, like, wipes their hands and they're like..

"Great. You good?" "Um, I guess. Yeah, I guess I'm good."

"I'm hungry primarily." "Yeah, let's go eat."

And then, well, we got a large group of people.

"Uh, Olive Garden." And, so you end up at Olive Garden.

My dad was dead for like 12 minutes and we were diving face-first into pans of lasagna.

Okay.

I feel like I'm at a..

I feel like I'm at a funeral here.

But I guess I'm trying to say as shitty as death is..

...it's almost worse how easy it is to get over somebody dying.

Like, you expect that when you die everyone in the whole world is gonna be consumed with grief.

Like, they're gonna thr..

Like CNN is gonna, like, weep and they're gonna throw themselves on a funeral pyre which they brought back into fashion for you.

And none of that happens.

Everybody at the funeral is drunk that night and they're back to work at most, like, later that week.

"Your loss." And then they're just at work.

It's just an excuse to be 10 minutes late to work for a month.

"My dad died. Yeah.

"Yeah, it's tough. My dad died.

I'll, I'll get right on that, I promise."

Hi. You all set? Hi.

You guys are great. You guys are great.

I feel comfortable talking about death with you guys

'cause it feels like I'm halfway in the grave right now with you.

Wake up, dumb-dumb.

Um..

I'm almost done. We all are.

Just a few more decades at most.

Oh, no, don't do that.

Every funeral is basically the same. We're not that special.

Whatever, whoever the fuck you were they have, they have, like, a script they read from.

"He was a loving father."

It's all cliches. Every funeral.

"He was a loving father, he's in a better place."

"She's in peace now." Have an original thought!

Why are these cliches? What are you, Jon Bon Jovi?

Get into some deep shit for me.

"I wonder if he was still alive after he died for a minute?"

Say that at the gravesite.

That's what the kids are thinking.

I won... I wonder if like, his kneecap's still alive.

He's coming up.

You there?


Here you are. Thank you.

What do you think of this?

Your shirt? Uh-huh.

I like it.

I've been buying these.

I thought I liked the cut.

It feels so bright now.

No, it fits well.

Thank you.

You didn't read it? No.

I'll read it when I want to.

I'm not gonna sit here in front of you.

What are you getting?

Uh, maybe a soup.

Are you gonna eat?

Can't decide.

So I've been staying with Chris.

He told me.

Right.


What are you thinkin'?

Nicholas.

Becca, what?

Nicholas..

Let's not do this.

Thank you.


Have you seen Nick? He went downstairs.

Well, he's got my shoes.

Um, do you know if he's all dressed?

He had a problem with his key.

So he's gonna come back here? Chris.

What? My shoes are in his room.

Would you want me to not wear shoes all day?

I want you to take care of your own sorry self.

I'm trying to, but I'm wearing socks.


Oh, hey!

You know, that was beautiful.

Thank you. Good to see you.

Hey, they're still warm.

Right over there. Hey, you made it.

Hello. Oh, hey, Paul.


She said..

That means I'm taller.

Yeah!

Claire wants to say goodbye.

Come help me with the table. Okay.

I'll be out in five minutes.

I will!

Is it nice?

It's fucking genius. So nice!

I haven't used it yet.

You know, uh, Chris doesn't like your place.

Yeah, that's what I said.

That's exactly what I said. That's what he said.

I was like, "I don't like mom's new place."

What do you mean, you don't like it?

I didn't say anything and that got construed as

"Chris hates mom's new place."

Chris, what are you wearing?

Are you naked?

I didn't wear any underwear.

To your grandmother's funeral?

Chris.. Oh, my..

What do you want from me?

Underwear.

It doesn't affect you, man.

Nick, will you help me with the table?

Just... stay a minute.

Whoo! Mm!

Yeah, give it a sit.

Nice.

Right? Yeah.

Chris, would you just cover yourself?

Why? I am totally beautiful.

Come on, Nick. Okay.

I'll be up in a minute.
