They have predicted the exact

location of impact,

but the government is refusing to release

this information to the public

to avoid creating an even

greater sense of panic.

Oh! You're early! Hi.

Aw. Warren told me about Linda.

Oh, yeah...

I am so surprised she didn't do it sooner.

She never really Iooked happy,

especially when she was with you.

That's new information.

Really? Mmm-hmm.

Why do you think she didn't

want to have kids?

Karen Amalfi is coming alone tonight.

Don't. Do not.

Do not what?

Please, Warren. Can we just have

a few sober moments tonight?

This is the Last Supper, Diane.

You think Jesus was sober

for his Iast supper?

You think he turned water into Iemonade?

Dodge, a Iittle help, please.

Uh-uh. No, no, no, no, no.

Dodge is my friend.

My friend. Look at this, my friend.

This is a Don Ramon cigar.

This is the hardest cigar in the world...

Can you chop those a Iittle

Iouder, please?

This is the hardest cigar

in the world to find.

And tonight, I'm going to share

one of my Iast 13 with you.

How's that sit?

Hi, Danny.

Hey, can I fix you a drink, son?

Quit ruining my Iife.

Good for you, sweetie. Express yourself.

Go f*ck yourself!

I was thinking maybe we should set up

Dodge with Karen. Don't you think?

Oh, my God, will you stop it?


He doesn't want to get set up with

one of your gross friends.

He needs to meet somebody!

No, he doesn't!

Leave him alone. He is alone, Iook at him.

I'm fine. No, honey, you're not fine.

You're gonna die alone. Doesn't

that bother you?

He's not gonna die alone. Yes, he is.

He's not gonna die alone. He's

gonna die with everybody else!

There's just no need to

cling to who's closest.

This isn't the fucking Ark, Diane.

This is the Titanic!

And there is not a Iife raft in sight.
