Well, Raoul's not!

Raoul's all man.


And he's moving in tonight.

After The Nutcracker.

He's bringing his things

over in the morning.

Bringing his things over?

There's hardly enough room for our things!

Your things are going!

I've already packed them!

They're in the hall beside the garbage,

and you can take 'em out all together.

I know I'm behaving strange.

Probably real strange.

I've never been in a situation

like this before.

I don't know how to handle it.

So I was waiting, calmly,

patiently, reasonably,

'til I do figure out how to

handle this kind of situation.

Hold it.

I think I've got it.

Yes, yes.

What the hell's going on here?

What's he doing in this bed?

You disgust me,

both of you!

I'm getting out of here,

and I never want to see you in my life again!

I think I handled that

rather well.

Oh, Larry,

don't forget the garbage.

I had no place to stay,

nowhere to go.

There was no one to talk to.

I must've looked pitiful.

That's the good thing about

living in a city like New York.

At least nobody I knew

was gonna see me like this.

Larry? Larry Hubbard?

Is that you?

Hey, Larry, how are you?

Jack. Jack Bedwood.

Oh, hi. You're looking good.

How's it going?

How does it look?

Pretty good, huh?

How's it going with you?

Oh, just taking a walk. I like to get

out of the house every once in a while.

I heard about you

and Danielle breaking up.

It just happened

15 minutes ago.

I just spoke to her. We were

very close. We had an affair.

- When was that?

- About four weeks ago.

Every morning

after you'd go to work.

But you knew about that,

didn't you?

Sure! We had an understanding.

We were very today people.

Yeah. Hey, say hello to my wife Verna.


Hi. And this is my

girlfriend Freida.

Hi. Nice to meet you.
