How have you been?

I'm tired too.

I haven't slept properly

the past four months.

Have I been gone that long?

Do you want me to come home?

You can't ask that.

You have to tell me what you want.

That's what I want.

I wanna come home.

I don't know. I, I don't know.

We're still the same.

It never occurred to me

that you could do something like this.

The doctor says that it was half-hearted.

The dosage was too small.

That you did it at a time when

you knew you could be found.

How am I to understand that?

Why didn't you just hang a

'Do Not Disturb' sign on the door?

Can you not do anything properly?

Do you want me to try again?


Let's see if we can get you out of here.

Sara, you don't have to worry that I'm

gonna try something again, okay?

I feel, I feel better now.

I think I'll start writing again.

Hmm. Good.

- I have some ideas.

- You can use my study.

You finished?


Back among the living, huh?


How have you been doin'?

You don't sound so good, dad.

I'm just doing nothing.

Nothing all day long.

You were looking forward to that.

I was wrong.

To tell you the truth, I'm down...

But not without reason.

What about you?

Are you out of your mind?

A suicide attempt?

Trying to be an artist, is that it?

- Anyway...

- Dad.

What happened at the lab?

I don't know why you still go there.

You always come back depressed.

I was just grabbing a coffee

with old colleagues.

Well, new people like to do

things their way.

You should know this.

I mean, what do you expect?

Some respect, for instance?

I look at pictures of your mother, Tommy.

And no matter how hard I try I can't

remember what it was that we had together.

Dad, please.

Hadn't you been around,

we'd have split up.

- So it's my fault?
