- We've been talking.

- Yes?

We want to move you

to Arizona.

Move me? Oh, my God.

What am I, cattle?


These are our two daughters.

Harry is an accountant.

Well, he was an accountant.

Your house is falling apart,

and you don't have Dad

to fix it.

I know, but, my friends,

they live here.

And your family lives there.

We just want you

close to us, Mom.

No, but...

Feel it out

for the weekend.

If not for you,

for us, please.

- It's what Dad would've wanted.

- All right.

[Diane] Well,

it's been over 40 years

and through it all, every month,

we still get together for...

[wine cork pops]

Wait. Wait, wait, wait.

Arthur as in Arthur?

Wait a minute.

Are you talking about...

- radio-station-sex Arthur?

- Yes!



That Arthur.

And he's staying at the hotel.

Does he not hate you, though?

He's got to.

No. That was 40 years ago!

Yeah, but still.

Oh! There she is.

My son is engaged and

my husband is in Maui

with a tartlet named Cheryl.

[Diane] Oh...

I need a drink.

Your "husband"?

You can't possibly still care

about what Tom is doing.

I don't care.

But the guy gets seasick

in a swimming pool.

I mean, what the hell

is he doing in Maui?

Sounds like he's

doing Cheryl in Maui.

Oh, please.

Who gets involved

in a relationship at 67?

I mean, what is the point?

The point is to get laid.

It's always the point.

- Don't make me sick.

- Who still says "get laid"?

Who still has any interest?

No, no, no. I am not gonna

let us become those people.

- What people...

- You know what people.

The people who stop living

before they stop living.

I haven't had sex

since my divorce

and it's been the happiest

18 years of my life.

[gasps] That must be

some kind of record.

I mean, what even happens
