- Mm-hmm.

- If there was a Best Performance by an actress

in a community

theater production,

you would win it.

And I hope that, you know, you would

thank me in your acceptance speech,

which you probably wouldn't,

you ungrateful slut.

- Thanks, Abby.

- I mean, I'm quitting.

I mean, who cares that

I was on Xanadu on Broadway?

Right? I mean,

what's the fucking point?

Hey, where's Phil?

He's at home, grading,

uh, or something.

Mid-term's coming up,

I think.


Not to be rude or anything,

but what the f*ck are you doing

wasting your talents here?

I mean, no offense

to the lovely locals.

I'm sure this place is like totally

gorg during the day and all,

but, shit,

if you were back in the city,

you would tear it up.

Thank you, but, this is...

You know, this is home now.

Speaking of, are you gonna

follow me back to the house?

Oh, babes, I wish I could.

I'm sure your house

is quaint as f*ck.

But I have rehearsal

in the village, so...

But hey, could you please come down

and hang out with me some time?

We could go out,

we could get drunk,

you could crash at my place.

Hangover brunch in the morn.

You know, um...

It's hard to get away

on weekends, so...



Whatever makes you comfy.

[engine idling]

[turns off engine]



[TV playing in the background]

[sighs heavily]

I really miss it.


Honey, I do, too.

I tell you every weekend, those poppy

seed bagels from Black Seed...

- Phew!

- No, I mean, it's...

more than that. It's...

Every day was a new

possibility, you know.

A chance for something

to happen.

It's not the same here.


But, let's not forget

there is a lot that

sucked about it.

And here we're finally

on tenure.

We finally own.

And, yes,

it's not our dream house
