I think I did.

Lucky, you...

Why would you do that?

That's my private business.

I don't like my personal business

being out in the street, okay?

As a blanket rule,

do not tell anybody

anything about my life ever, okay?

Who else did you tell?

- The truth?

- Yes, Lucky, the truth!

David Lilly's assistant.

Oh, my God!

They wanted to switch lunch

to drinks last night.

I don't know how

you graduated from Harvard.

You have the common sense

of a five-year-old.

If I didn't have so much to do

today, I'd fire you.

Mom, I gotta go.

So, Jack,

what is up with you and this

Journal-writing course?

Come on, man.

What is that?

That's... that's funny that you ask.


Just something

I'm doing on the side

to try to understand

the writing process better.

Look, man, you know,

what it comes down to is...

I love writers.

That's my life.

I always wanted to be a writer,

but I'm not.

I'm not good enough and... you are.

L... Look, I gotta ask you something.

And think about this

before you answer.

David, are you happy?

Well, I'm not doing

anything as drastic

as writing a morning diary.

But, yeah.

I stay happy.

You don't have to dress

up in women's clothes

to write in that thing, do you?

That's funny.

- Hey.

- Hey.

- How was your day?

- Brutal.

How was

the scleroderma dinner?

It was good.

Bob Saget was funny.

Where'd you go after that?

I called you a couple times.

You did?


That's weird.

My cell phone was on all night.

Coverage in this city

is so in and out.

What's up with that?

Should I read this?

Should I?

No! I don't need

to read this yet.

I don't need to read

any of your Journals.

You know why?

Because there's nothing in them.

They're empty, boring,

surface fluff.

First week always is.
