Some days, everything matters.

Some days, nothin' matters.

I want you

to make a commitment-

every day for the next 30 days.


I'll see you tomorrow, same time.

- Thank you, Doctor.

- My pleasure.

- Monica.

- Dutch. Good to see you.

- I'm sorry I wasn't here when you arrived.

- Oh.

I was at a conference. I'm late for

a meeting, but I need to talk to you.

- Can you walk with me?

- Yeah. Yeah.

It appears your time

at Oxford has paid off.

You've even picked up an accent.

Good for business.

I know a mind

is a terrible thing to waste.

- How are you and Kevin?

- Miserable, as usual.

But I might as well

get to the point.

We won't be able to pay

the salary you requested.

I "requested"? Oh, you mean

the salary you promised me.

No one's deceived you.

The offer was-

I moved my family up here from Atlanta.

Now you're telling me there's no money?

Every contract has contingencies-

subject to pending grants

and all the fine print.

But that's beside the point.

I want you here.

And I will do everything in my power

to keep you here.

Like old times, right?

Monica, that's inappropriate.

I'm happily married.

- Happily, so am I.

- To one of my best friends.

As if Kevin would mind.

Nothing's changed.

We need to have

this conversation later.

Come to our surprise

anniversary party.

It's Sunday afternoon

at the Academy of Fine Arts.

How can it be a surprise

when you already know about it?

There are no secrets between us, Dutch.

You know that.

Ryan Chambers is hosting it for us.

I'm sorry.

We go to church on Sunday.

Your presence is required,

not requested, Dr. Mass.

#Praise the Lord #

# Come on, come on #

# Come on, come on #

# Come by me #

# O Lord, come by me #

# O Lord, come by me #

Whoo! Yeah! Come on! Sing! Yeah!

# Yeah #
