- I never said that.

I don't know why you speak

so bitterly about her.


Was she unfaithful to you, is that it?

Your mother? Unfaithful?

If only I'd been so lucky.

But she was far too boring

to venture into that sort of thing.

Man, why don't you just leave her alone?

She can't defend herself anymore.


I have done everything wrong.

The years with her.

The years spent on meaningless

research at the lab.

Just letting time pass...

Until it's too late.

- It's never too late, dad.

- What?

Every time you come here,

all you give me are platitudes.

"It's never too late, dad." Huh?

Please, do not come here out of duty.

You must have better things to do.

Come if you like.

But do not come because

you feel you should.

That's just belittling.

I'll keep that in mind.

What about Sara?

I haven't seen her in such a long time.

She's, uh, she's out looking at apartments.


You're thinking of moving into town?

We're considering it.


I couldn't sleep.

When did you start smoking

that stuff again?

Don't worry, I'll quit soon.

Hmm. It's kind of selfish.

And I am worried.

Just trying to relax

and take my mind off things.

- Is that okay?

- No.

Because it's not making things go away.


It's great seein' you, man.

Come in.

Ann, can you leave us alone for

a sec, please?

Yes. Excuse us.

Sit down.

How're you doin'?


I know what happened to you.

We can talk about it.

Not right now.

Maybe later.

I was just feeling really down.

But I'm better now.

The paradox with your kind

of work is that...

Nearly everything,

in one way or another

can one day become a resource.

How do you mean?

Those three chapters

you sent me last week.

They definitely show...

Something new.

So you liked it?

I liked it a lot. Yeah.
