I can get two for mine,

and it's half your acreage.

Well, I can't really afford to be choosy.

At least I have a customer.

I think. I hope, at least.

Don't give it away.

I can lend you what you need.

No, Howard. Oh, God, no.

Thank you, though.

No. You've been... You've been

incredible to me through all this,...

- ..but I've gotta try and get my own life...

- What can you do in New York?

I don't know. I...

Maybe my photography again. I was...

Or sometimes I think

about writing, but I don't know.

It's awful, isn't it, at my age

to be floundering around so?

I just... I don't know what I want.

A child. I'd love to have a child.

Lane, did you, by any chance,

finish those chapters I gave you?

- Yeah, almost. They're wonderful.

- I thought about them. I'm discouraged.

- You shouldn't be. You're wrong.

- I just wanna start over, again.

You can't tear up

everything you write, you know.

Otherwise of course you have

to take tranquillisers to calm down.

It seems so futile.

I was supposed to be finished by now.

Next week is Labor Day.

I have to be back at my job the day after.

If you wouldn't let

my mother seduce you...

Now, her life would make

a fascinating book.

Why? What's so fascinating

about her frivolous existence?

That she left my father,

who was a wonderful man,...

..for a gangster who beat her up?

You think that's compelling?

Was it the shooting? That wasn't

fascinating. That was pathetic.

Maybe it's that she's a survivor, and

the book I'm writing is about surviving.

You're right. She went on with her life,

but I get stuck with the nightmares.

Excuse me. Uh...

Diane wanted some ice cubes

and you seem to be out.

Um, there's a... there's an ice machine

just outside the back door.

And you're wrong to think your mother
