I don't know. I really don't know.

- It was a total shock?|- Yeah, completely.

They were so casual about it.

They didn't seem to be|appropriately upset.

Were you hurt because Sally never|mentioned anything to you?


I think, if I look hard...|Searching over the time...

...when we were alone together...

She may have occasionally|remarked about wondering...

...what it would be like|to be single.

Now, with all she knew, all she'd|experienced. That kind of thing.

But she never said anything|negative about Jack.

Before we go on, tell us|something about yourself.

So we know who you are.

Okay. My name is Judy Roth.|I'm married to Gabe.

We've been married about 10 years.

I work for an art magazine.|We don't have any children.

I have a daughter|from a previous marriage.

I was married when I was very young,|to an architect.

It didn't work out.|It's nobody's fault.

Judy told us they did|finally go to dinner.

She said she was tense and nervous,|although the others seemed fine.

Afterwards, they walked home.

She tried to participate,|but found the atmosphere strained.

All in all, she said,|it was a very peculiar evening.

It's amazing, isn't it?

You think you're friendly|with people and it turns out... really have no idea|what they're thinking.

Do you ever hide things from me?

Me? What kind of things?

I don't know. Feelings, you know.

Longings. Complaints.


- Do you?|- No.

Sometimes, maybe.

Really? Like what?

I don't know. You know how|you're always so critical?

We've had this conversation.

You're definitely in a strange|mood tonight.

I'm fine. I'm sorry.

Jack never gave you an inkling?|It's strange, you guys are so close.

I remember one incident|he mentioned at his office.

Jack, trust me on this.

This girl is to die.
