- Danny!

- Of course it's what it looks like, Sherry.

- My wife's not an idiot, for Christ's sake.

- Thank you, darling.

That's the nicest thing

you've said to me all year.

Here. Let me help you.

You know, you really

shouldn't wear this color.

It makes you look like a tramp.

What am I saying?

You are a tramp.

Hey. What are you doin'

with that suitcase?

- I'm leaving you.

- Oh, Christ, honey.

Come on. You know

you're not gonna leave me.

Never contradict a woman

while you're in your underwear.

It puts you at a great disadvantage.

I'm-I'm-I'm sorry. Baby, I am.

You know I do these crazy things.

But they don't mean anything.

No offense, Sherry. Sherry?

Oh, come on now, honey.

Be realistic.

W-Where would you go?

What would you do?

- Where's my passport?

- Oh, hell. Go on then. Leave me.

I don't need you around here anyway. All

you do is hold me back and spend my money.

- And everybody knows that.

- What a relief for you then.

- Well, what about the boys?

- Boys?

- Yeah. George, Robbie. The boys.

You remember them?

- Where are they?

- They're at school, Miss Devereaux.

- Why?

- I'm going to take them with me.

- And do what?

- Raise them.

- You?

Well, you don't think I'm leaving them here

with the likes of you, do you?

Give me a break.

You're a lousy mother.

- I love my children.

- So what?

I love my kids, and I'm shit for a father.

- Bernice?

- Yes, ma'am?

Am I a lousy mother?

It's not my place to say, Miss Devereaux.

[Softly]

But if you wanna know the God's honest...

- There.

- Aw, shit.

Go on, then.

Take the damn kids. What do I care?

[Elevator Whirring]

[Sighs]

[Elevator Bell Dings]

- [Elevator Doors Close]

- [Narrating] Ten minutes later...

- my mother took my brother and me out of school.

- Shit.
