will speak at the summit Tuesday.

Tony, did I just curse?

Are you kidding me? Shit!

I mean... Shit. Shoot!

The slain Civil Rights leader

was eulogized... (SNEEZES)


Oh, wow! Did you see that?

Right on the lens!

Folks, I'm sorry.

I hold myself to a high

professional standard

and you shouldn't hear

that language, okay?

I'm having a shitty day.

Oh, f*ck-stick!

Now, I know this is tricky,

given your relationship,

so I'm going to give you the

evening to think about it.

I forbid it!

You forbid it? What?

Who are you? Julius Caesar?

Who the hell is Julius Caesar?

You know I don't follow the NBA.

Look, I am so sorry that

this happened, Ron,

but you and I,

we're partners, sweetheart.

And when something good happens

to me, it also happens to you.

That's ridiculous!

It clearly just happened to you!

You... Oh! Be quiet.




I'm sorry, Mr. and Mrs. Burgundy.

He no go to sleep.

Damn it, Lupita, what have

you been doing up there?

Eating nachos?

Mommy? Daddy? Why are you

yelling at each other?

Did Mom touch Dad's hair again?

Walter, honey, why don't you

just go to bed, all right?

Mommy and Daddy are

just having a discussion.

No! He needs to hear this.

He's six years old. He's a man.

Walter, listen to me.

Life isn't a fairy tale.

It's not a bunch of jumping

rope and grabbing ass.

It's complicated. (SIGHS)

What do you want to

do with your life?

What do you want to be

when you grow up?

I want to be an

astronaut or a cowboy!

You're never going to be

any of those, okay?


You've got to set the

bar a lot lower.

Service industry.

Fry cook. Prison guard.

Maybe you're a lighting

guy at a porn shoot.

Which basically means you hold up a

flashlight while adults do things.
