and tried to strangle him

over his Grape Nuts.

It was All Bran.

Who cares?

It's a nutty thing to do.

And I didn't strangle him.


I don't even know you

anymore, Desiree.

Whatever happened to that

sweet little Jersey girl

that I kissed in the boys' bathroom

back at Flemville Elementary?

Oh, for goodness sakes, Eddie!

We were twelve! You're supposed

to be my lawyer. Do something!

I'm trying. Okay?

I'm in the process of negotiating

the retrieval of your personal

belongings from your former dwelling

in the presence

of a law enforcement officer.

"Former dwelling?"

Yeah. You gotta surrender

your keys to the penthouse.


And the ring.


Let go.

How am I supposed

to sustain myself?

Have you forgotten that your parents

practically hocked the family business

to send you to Columbia?

Maybe it's time

to dust off that MBA of yours.

Perfect. I can just hear

the interview now.

"Oh, what kind of work

experience have you acquired

over the last 15 years

Mrs. Harper?"

"Well, none, but I am quite

an accomplished shopper. "

You have a place to stay?

Crash on my couch.


but my girlfriends

will be fighting over me.

- Morgan.

- What's going on?

- You heard?

- Unbelievable.

Oh, yes! Listen...

We were just leaving

for the country house.

You're going to the

Hamptons? That's perfect!

I can watch your penthouse

while you're gone.

The building doesn't allow

strangers in the apartment.

But surely your husband

would trust me.

How's Wade's throat?

Oh. Uh, Wade's throat is fine.

So he's not pressing charges?

No, he's not pressing charges.

- Hi, Lana. You got my message?

- Uh-huh.

- So I can stay with you?

- No, honey, I'm with Fabio.

- Who's Fabio?

- You know, the one from Spain.

Oh. Well, that's no problem.
