you could really open 'em up.


I'm an incest survivor, you know.

I don't remember, -

- but I know that I survived

something. My therapists think so.

I hate kitchens, cooking, cleaning,

anything feminine.

I think this could work. If you

feel the same, give me a call.

Hello, Sam Rawson. Hello?

The front door was open.

Are you Allison Jones?

Yes... Allie.

I'm Hedra Carlson.

We spoke on the phone this morning.

Are you sure you're okay?

You know what? I'm not.

Would you come back tomorrow?

- Sit down. I'll make some tea.

- I don't think I had lunch.

It's only this one.

The one in the bathroom works.

I use a wrench.

I'm so sorry.

If you need a reference,

you can call them at Rizzoli.

Hedra... that's unusual.

I got terrible nicknames growing up,

which I'm not telling you.

Not Hedy? Like Hedy Lamarr?

That's exotic.

I wasn't exotic in grade school...

as opposed to now, right?

They're dry.

- Here.

- Thanks.

You can toss that. He's the reason

I'm looking for a new room-mate.

Will you guys patch things up?

I wouldn't want to move in -

- and then have things change.

It would just be awkward.

Nothing will change, except

for now my faucets will work.

- When can you move in?

- No, really?

- Congratulations.

- Thank you.

I've got one friend. Graham.

He lives upstairs... but he's gay.

It's not a real friendly building,

but there's no problem with privacy.

You just close your door...

no problem.

I'll leave you alone...

whatever's good for you.

Look, this could be good.

Laundry room.

It's a little creepy at night.

It's okay in the day,

but lock yourself in.

- This one?

- No, that's the mail key.

This is creepy.

It's not bad, it's just kind of old.

Sometimes this gets stuck and

you have to use this screwdriver.
