Stop projecting.

I'm not the patient here,

Anjali, come on.

- So exhausting.

- Yes, so exhausting.

I know, I know. Thank you.

See you next week. Thank you.

- (SIGHS IN RELIEF)

- ANJALI:
Who's Agnes?

I can't sell the house,

the cracks are back.

They'd taken it off the menu.

The evening was ruined.

The only reason to go there

was the white pie.

I'm thinking of taking in

other people's laundry.

To get some extra cash

to help pay for the nanny.

(SPEAKING IN MAN'S VOICE)

Otherwise, we're going under.

(SPEAKING IN WOMAN'S VOICE)

I was doing the exercises, but I fell asleep.

And now the sergeant says

I'm not standing straight.

(SPEAKING IN WOMAN'S VOICE)

Nobody brought me a birthday...

(SPEAKING IN MAN'S VOICE)

- Present I actually wanted.

- About the matter of weight...

But his feet

really are a problem.

Nipples just aren't

an erogenous zone for men.

I'm gonna have to cut the nanny

down to five days a week.

- It's an uphill battle.

- I'm at the end of my rope.

The end of your rope.

- The end of your rope!

- Yeah.

I'll give you a rope.

Okay, a child witnessing

his parents gunned down

in a drive-by shooting,

there's a rope!

A midwife in Africa,

trying to deliver babies

with no running water,

that is a rope!

Tintin.

Literally at the end

of his rope.

Does he cut the rope

to save his own life

or does he hold on to stop his friend

from falling to a certain death?

Cut the rope, Tintin!

Cut the rope!

Jane, Jane!

Jane! Jane!

I'm sorry.

I am very, very sorry.

I don't know...

I don't know what came over me.

Same time next week?

Um, I have to take my daughter

sailing for a couple of days.

Yes. Yes, I do remember

you mentioning that.

So, the following week?

I still won't be back.

You said a couple of days.
