That's not what I meant,

and you know it.

The Noonans weren't exactly

the fathering type,

and dad, God rest his soul,

wasn't exactly cuddly.

Well, dad was a prick.

He was an Irish Mick of a prick.

And Jo knew you felt that way,

knew how you felt about being

a father because of that!

Just because he was a son of a bitch

didn't mean I was going

to be a son of a bitch.

I mean, a couple of years ago,

we even decided to have kids.

Yeah, I remember.

Jo told me about it

one time at dinner.

She never looked so excited.

We both were.

If it was going to be a little boy...


We were going to call him Mike junior.


And if it was going

to be a little girl,

she'd be...Kya.


Kya Jo Noonan.

That's really pretty.

We tried to get pregnant,

but then I, you know,

I went to the doctor,

and he told me it was this

low sperm count,

and that was the end of that.

That was the end.

Jo wasn't cheating on you, Mikey.

[Clears throat]

When you sold me your share

of granddad's lake house...


I mean, Jo spent a lot of time there.

Yeah, of course she did.

I mean, the place was a dump.

It was a total fixer.

Yeah, I know, I mean, I was

really wrapped up in the book

and everything like that.

I went there

a couple of times with her.

I haven't been there

for two, three years.


You and Jo were the best couple

I ever met, Mike.

So don't beat yourself up

over the little things, okay?

I just hope she wasn't

too lonely out there

on Dark Score Lake, you know?

Hope she didn't need somebody

who might have kept her company.

That's all.
