We're all frauds until

we come up with a good idea.

Then we're geniuses.


- How was breakfast with Mom?


These situations

are never easy,

but, uh, it went as well as

one could hope.


That's good.

I just, uh, hope that she lands

on her feet like you have.

Your mother's

an extraordinary woman.

We have a deep, deep connection,

and we always will.

Yeah. That's good.

Well, I have to go.

Because it's time for me

to whine to my thesis advisor.


Do you have any big plans

for tomorrow night?

What's special about

tomorrow night?

It's Friday night.

Dining, dancing?

Hanging out with

that certain someone.

- I don't hang out.

- Oh.

What about

a certain someone?

You're right.

It has no teeth.

It's shallow.

That's not what

I was gonna say, Maud.

Morality matters.

How we treat each other matters.

Your faith in humanity

is inspiring.

But it doesn't add anything

to the conversation.

Listen, Maud,

I see this every year.

A student gets to

the end of their thesis,

suddenly becomes

their own harshest critic.

Don't go there.

Just stay focused and finish.

All right.

If you say so.

I say so.

I can get away

this weekend.

I miss you.

I ache for you.


It's over.

I keep hoping

you'll change your mind.

I'm not going to.

All right?

I feel like

the worst kind of hypocrite.

I'm writing

a thesis on morality,

and having an affair

with a married man.

That's insane.


It's over.

That's final.

Don't do it.

Don't f*ck up your life.

But you didn't tell her that?

Of course

not, but, you know...

- Wh-wh...

- [SIGHING] I wanted to.

Yeah, but why are you so angry

with this patient?

Because she's weak.


Uh-huh. Yeah. Go on.

And I have to work so damn hard

not to read my life into hers.
