- He's in a great spot,

so once...

- Okay, okay.

Everybody good?

Let's get quiet on the set.

And, Naima,

you're just chilling.

How many have you put down?

I don't know,

but it is double figures.


Onion rings

without the onion

in the middle.

the precipice of, like,

an emotional breakthrough.

Yeah, I'm not...

I feel good.

I feel okay,

um, about it.

I had never been
