...the hockey fiend

from Canton.

You think I'd forget.

...the most important woman

in my life?

You are

a great...

...but foolish man.

I count on you

to keep me apprised.

What do you say, Bertie?

It's party time.


My wandering angel...

...home at last.

I love you.

I love that job.

I love loving you.

No, thanks.

You forgot.

It's okay.

You were busy, must have

slipped your mind.

Happy anniversary,



we'll celebrate

in the storage room.

Do you remember what they called

it when we bought the house?

"The kids' room. "

We haven't even gotten

the dog to sit yet.



I can do that.

I look at you...

...and I know that life is

inherently worthwhile.

And a good thing

to keep engaging in.

...until I get it right.

I got offered something

in Boston.

At the museum in the fall.

Assistant curator.

And I think that.

...if I'm far enough

away from you...

I can move on.


who is it?

What is it, someone

you ran into at work?

Some big-deal art aficionado?

You wouldn't be

leaving me. leave me, so who is it?

All right.

If it makes it easier...

...there is someone.

Who makes me feel I'm

not crazy for doing this.


You were on the road.

You lose your way.

L- I can encompass that.

You know, I think

it would be better...

...less complicated,

if I move out now.

No. No, no, no.

All right.

Here's what:
Um, I'm gonna

take the company apartment...

I mean, you know,

for a week or two.

You know what I'm gonna do?

I'm gonna give you some space.

That's a good thing, right?


You'll have

the run of the house.

And you'll realize that we

don't even breathe right.

without each other.

It was two weeks ago.


Our anniversary.

How did he sound to you

when you talked to him?
