Rabbit Hole

Synopsis: Becca and Howie Corbett are a happily married couple whose perfect world is forever changed when their young son, Danny, is killed by a car. Becca, an executive-turned-stay-at-home mother, tries to redefine her existence in a surreal landscape of well-meaning family and friends. Painful, poignant, and often funny, Becca's experiences lead her to find solace in a mysterious relationship with a troubled young comic-book artist, Jason - the teenage driver of the car that killed Danny. Becca's fixation with Jason pulls her away from memories of Danny, while Howie immerses himself in the past, seeking refuge in outsiders who offer him something Becca is unable to give. The Corbetts, both adrift, make surprising and dangerous choices as they choose a path that will determine their fate.

What are you gonna do?

I'm just glad you finally told me.

Debbie has been driving me crazy

with these kitchen renovations.

I tell you, the countertop

negotiations alone.

I told you not to marry an agent.

She still hasn't called, you know.

No, I know.

I mean, I don't mean to be a pest about it,

but I just know Becca

would love to hear from her.

I know. I tell her, Howie, I do.

But she's still...

I don't know. Freaked out, I guess.

- It's been eight months.

- I know. I'll talk to her.

Thank you. Hey, how are the kids?

They're good.

Emily's doing ballet. Robbie is in T-ball.


Hey, have you guys talked at all

about having another?


No, it's a little soon.

- Just be a little open. That's

all I'm asking. - I'm here, aren't I?

- Hey.

- How's it going?

Good, good. We're hanging in there.

- You sure?

- Yeah.

- Hey, Kevin.

- Hi. Hi.

Yeah, we... We just...

We found out

that Becca's sister is pregnant, so...

- Howie.

- What?

That can be hard.

I remember when my cousin got pregnant.

Yeah, it's not really a big deal.


If you want to talk about it, though,

you know, the group's here, so...

Yeah, no, I don't think so.

- "Hey, everybody, fresh meat."

- Becca, be nice.

Doesn't she remind you of Lydia?

There was this woman in our group

a couple of years ago.

It was four. Four years ago.

You know,

it doesn't really matter when she was here.

My point is, is that

she reminds me of Lydia.

She really wasn't

into the support-group model at first.

- So, how long have you been in group?

- It'll be eight years in June.

I didn't... I didn't

realize it was that long.

You know, we're the veterans.

You know, for us it's...

It's a good way to touch base.

Everyone's on a different schedule.

Of course. Of course.

She... You know,
