You know that, okay.

And if I had told her what happened...

- So you lied?

- I didn't lie, I just,

my mom gives me so much anxiety.

About my life and my job, and you.

- About me?

Why does she give you anxiety about me?

- You know, 'cause you're older.

- I'm older?

- Well, I mean...

- Older?

- Well...

- What the...

- Well, I think she should say it.

- I'm not saying it.

- Well, I'm not saying it.

Does it even need to be said

or is it just kind of

a thing that's like...

- Yes, you should say sorry.

- Why?

I mean, you should say sorry to me.

- What would I say sorry for?

- For calling me a liar.

- You lied.

- You know what, I did,

whatever I did, I did for you.

- Oh my god,

What are we, in a Bryan Adams song?

- Oh my, that is so,

you can't even talk to someone

when they're just like...

- Okay, can I give you

a piece of advice?

- Yeah, I mean, that's what you're...

- That is the arrangement.

- That's why we're here.

- You're both clearly in a lot of pain.

Your frustrations with your

own lives, your careers,

your frustrations with each other.

And though these issues may seem trivial,

they need to be addressed.

Because, oddly, they may be the gateway

to processing your grief.

What I'm looking for is a

way to address these things

without the two of you

getting into the same fight

over and over again.


Well, time's up.

And um, I'm moving to Canada.

- I mean.

- I mean.

- Can we thank your godmother for coming?

Say thank you.

- Yeah, that's close.

- That's what we're gonna get.

- That was close.

- That's what we're gonna get.

- Happy birthday, Theo.

- Go play with your friends.

- Cute.

- How are you doin'?

' Yep, I'm good.

- On a scale of one to Snoop Lion,

how high are you right now?

- Um.
