It's a great part.

Yes. But there'll

be lots of publicity.

The press is bound to

dig it all up again.

They won't.

That's why I wrote the book.

I gave them what they wanted.

How do you think

Zoe will react?

I went to visit her on

the set the other day and

I felt I'm ready

to do this again.

I'm probably better

now than I ever was.

Ha! You never

cease to amaze me.

I'll let them know.

I want the deal

made by Friday.

Now is a perfect time.

[ Inaudible Discussions ]

Just give me a

couple of weeks.

Yeah, I know what I said.

I know that.

I know it's a lot of cash.

Yeah. No, I didn't-- let me

call you back, all right?

[ Noise ]

Yeah, we need to call

Sally to do my hair.

No, I need to fly out

early to do work and stuff.


I guess a house in Malibu.


Yeah. I'm excited.


You're excited

too, aren't you?

Of course.

Oh good.

Okay, bye.

It won't keep him, you know?

This has nothing

to do with Jake.

It was a mistake to

quit in the first place.

You didn't have a choice.

Do you think you have

it all wrapped up?

Just call Sally and shut up.

[ Music & Noise ]

[ Noise ]

So tell me what you heard.

I told you, she's

got the lead in a film.

She wouldn't do that.

You've got it wrong.

I know what I heard.

She's making a comeback.

[ Traffic Noise ]

It's been a long time.

We used to [inaudible] here

every weekend, I remember.

[Inaudible Remark]

I told you, it's perfect.

Hey, darling.

You look beautiful.

I prefer the other dress.

I told you, it's

two against one.

What's wrong with it?

Maybe it's just not

right for this evening.

I'll wear the first one.

This makes me nervous.

Oh, Jake, don't.

He's always hanging

around listening.

We're going to get rid of her.

Are you ready?
