Was that inappropriate?


I don't know why I said that.

No, it's ok.

Hello, Mrs. Wright.


Please, have a seat.

Thank you.

You're welcome.

Here we are.

This looks very nice.

I'm surprised you came.

Me, too.

Me, too.

How was your drive?

Oh, fine.

Actually, everything's

excruciating right now.

I'm barely myself.

She was just here,

and she was fine.



So what happened?

Um, well, from

what I was told, she

was in traffic changing lanes--

I know that.

I read what happened.

Oh, I see.

I don't believe it.

--We sang

karaoke the night before.

Was she drunk?


It was the middle of the day.

She was a good driver.

Not that day.

What was different?

I don't know.

It was raining.

She was rushing.


It was an accident.

Excuse me.

Would you like to eat with us?

No, thank you.

I need to get to the

store before it closes.

Do you need anything?

No, thank you.

Well, you

look very tired.

Maybe she should get

you some sleeping pills.


That's ok.


Ann is very good.

She does more than she should.


All the time.

I've done

all right up till now.

It's the light of day

that shows me how.

And when the night falls.

Be serious.

My loneliness calls.

Oh, i

wanna dance with somebody.

You were great.

You were great.


Suzy, could I get another

gin and tonic, please?

What are you doing?


Why are you drinking so much?

I thought we were having fun.

We are having fun.

But I just don't understand.

What, fun?

Oh, come on, Fiona.

Just leave it.

Why are you

drinking so much when

we're trying to get pregnant?

If I'm drinking

right now, I guess

I'm not trying to get pregnant,

not thinking about it.

How is he today?


He should have flown.

He's stubborn.

What makes you say that?
