She'll be back in a few days.

Uh, what I was thinking of is,

maybe we should, uh...


I'm sorry. I...

Are you all right? I...

I can't believe

I did that.

- Oh!

- I'm home!

What are you doing here?

I live here. Remember?

I know that.

I know. I know.

But, I mean,

your hip and your back...

Aren't you supposed

to still be in the hospital?

Nah, I decided

to blow that pop stand.

Well, you could have

told me that yesterday.

- Is that yours?

- Uh-huh.

- What's wrong with you?

- Nothing.

There was nothing I was doing

at the hospital at this point...

that I couldn't do at home,

so I figured...

What about your physical therapy

and all that?

They're sending

a nurse, okay?

Let's start this

over again.

Nicer, with feeling.

Okay. Now here's

how it goes.

I say,

"Hi, honey. I'm home. "

And you say, "Gosh,

it's good to see you!

I missed you!"

And I say, "I've been

in traction for three weeks...

and I am horny. "

- And you say...

- Great.

See, I always liked gimpy girls.

But I was really hoping

for an amputee.

- Ow!

- What?

I'm sorry.

It's my left leg.

It's okay. Let's try it again. Wait.

- Ow!

- Hey! All right.

When's this nurse coming?

I think we need her.

Don't remind me.

- Straight ahead.

- Thank you.

Mrs. Boyer?


Mrs. Boyer?

Mrs. Boyer?

Hi, Mrs. Boyer. I'm Lisa Willoughby

from the Lazenby Agency.

The doorman said

I could let myself in.

My name's Erica.

God, you're so pretty.

Th-Thank you.

No, I mean...

All the nurses at the hospital

were old battle-axes.

How old are you?


I need to ask you some questions

before we start.

Right down to business, huh?

- I noticed all your pictures

when I came in. - Mm.

That's my husband

Alex's parents.

They're both dead.

They died in a car crash when he was a kid.
