Listen, I don't have that much

to do here today, so...

I thought I'll get

a lazy lunch with you,

maybe... find a hotel.


It's not that easy.

- Okay.

- Sorry.

It's fine, it was just an idea.

Um... see you at home?

Yeah, okay.

I love you.

I love you too.


Yes, I'm here.

I missed you too, honey,

so much.

I'm in the baby section.

I got this red sweater for him,

it's so beautiful,

you have to see it.

No, I'm ready.

I'm always ready for you, baby.

We're out of saffron.

Are you sure

you've looked properly?

Uh... yes, I'm sure.

Shall I go and get some?

It doesn't matter.

We need another candle.

Just, the bulb's gone

in the hall.

- Okay. I can't come now.

- Please change it.

I don't feel safe on the ladder.

I can't now.

Okay, I'll do it.

No, just... ugh...

Leave it.

It's dark in here.

Well, we're not eating

in the hall, are we?

- Kate:
What's wrong?

- Justin:

- Don't lie to me.

I don't know why

you invited them.

She said they don't know anyone.

Well, maybe that's

how they want it.

- Maybe that's how you want it.

- What's that supposed to mean?

They're our neighbors.

And she's nice.

She's... kooky.

- What do you mean "kooky"?

- I don't know.

It's like she's got this

little... secret all the time.

Have you got a crush on her?

I'll go.

- Hi.

- Hi.

Jon's just setting the alarm.

These are for you.

Thank you. They're beautiful.

You have such lovely soft skin.

What do you use?

Something I can't

afford. Come in.

Sorry for the penumbra,

the bulb just went.

It was so kind of you

to invite us.

- No need for that.

- Oh, we always do.

Hi, I'm Theresa.

Hi, I'm Justin.

You must be Kate.

Come through. Justin's cooking.

- Theresa:
This is delicious.
