- Yeah, Laura.

I think you described her as "whatever."

- I don't remember.

- I bet.

You didn't tell me

that she was in LA with you.

She wasn't in LA with me.

We were just there at the same time.

Michael, face me.

You didn't tell me anything about her

before tonight,

but then, I think you know that.

What's that supposed to mean?

What did you think would happen tonight?

I mean, seriously.

Did you think I just wouldn't notice?

Why would I think anything

about you noticing her?

You are a terrible liar.

Maybe because I don't lie.

She likes you, and you like her.

And of course

you don't want to talk to me about it.

- Where does this come from?

- My eyes, Michael.

She was the only one

you talked to all night.

How many glasses of wine

did you have tonight, Jo?

Two, and too few sips.

Is that really your response?

- You had more than that.

- What are you, the drink patrol?

You know that moment when we go out

and I ask you not to have another?

And you ask me why? Well, this is why.

You're kidding, right?

Because it makes you like this, baby.

Michael, without the wine,

you'd be in a much shittier place.

Eleven hours a day,

five, sometimes six days a week.

What, that's 60 hours a week with her

for three months now?

What is it you think that I've done?

Check my phone, Jo.

- Check e-mail, check receipts. Go on.

- Oh, not everyone gets caught, Michael.

- Has she told you she's attracted to you?

- I don't know. Maybe, Joanna.

You know,

I don't let the conversation go there.

But it's tried to, hasn't it?

I bet it tried to when

you were in LA together.

You have hours that I don't know about

with the people that you work with!

You go away, doing your articles.

All the time.

And have I ever given you

a reason to stand here
