Well, why don't I just...


...put the instructions

on the fridge

so we'll have them,

in case anyone forgets.

Hey, when is the, um,

PT nurse person coming?

She's starting tomorrow.

Every other day.

All right.

All right.

Everything's okay.

I'm going to see you tonight

after 6:
00, okay?

Everything's going to be fine.

Just in case

you change your mind,

my offer still stands.

Please come and stay with me.

We would love to have you.

Thank you.

All right?


Okay, so you've been really great.

And you too.

Um, call me later.

Thank you. Go.

I have so much room.

- We're kind of rich.

- We're good.

- Bye.

- Okay. Bye, you guys.

Shh, shh.

She's the worst!

Oh, my God. The worst!

Can you imagine?


Living with your sister.


Trapped, defenceless

in New Jersey.

I would shoot myself

in the face.

Oh, my God.

Don't worry.

You don't need her.

We're all going

to take care of you.


Are you hungry?



I'm not going to eat

for the next three months.

I don't want to get fat.


Thank you.


Yeah, I'm at Frannie's.

I told you that.

Tell him I said hi.

What's the matter?

Uh, around 5:

I can be home at 5:00, right?


What do you mean

you want to talk to me?

Well, what do you mean?

Why does it have to wait?

That's so weird and mysterious.

You're freaking me out.

What do you mean?

Well, why can't you just

tell me now?

Okay, so it's bad then.

You're going to tell me

something bad.

What, are you going to break up

with me or something?

I can't believe

this is happening!

Four fucking years,

and this is how you end it?!

I thought we were going

to get married! I thought...

I thought this was it.

He wants to be with

this girl at his job!

Oh, God!

You stay here.

No! No!
