- Then what, because if you don't tell me,

I'm going to beat this horn

and the little miss can come

back here and I'm going

to drive her to the city.

- Shh! Just keep your voice down.

- Or what?

- I think she's cheating on me.

- Why do you think that?

- She's been doing this thing

where she'll take a phone call

and won't tell me who it is.

Sometimes she'll even take the phone

in another room to take a call.

When I ask her, "Hey baby, who was that?"

You know what she says?

"It's just a friend."

- That definitely sounds suspicious.

I mean, why wouldn't

she tell you who it is?

- That's what I thought.

"Just a friend."

Which friend?

I mean, be more specific, right?

I would.

- I would, I'm very specific.

Ask me who I was talking

to at 3:
30 this afternoon.

- Who were you talking to

at 3:
30 this afternoon?

- Glen, yeah, and if I

wanted to be un-specific,

I'd tell you something like,

"Just some bloke from the trading post.

"F*ck off for asking!"

- Yeah, but this week I just happened

to overhear her on the phone.

I could hear her saying "Friday's perfect.

"Let's go out Friday night."

Then when she comes back in the room,

I ask her who she's

talking to and she says...

- "Just a friend."

- Exactly!

Yesterday I ask her, just casually,

"What are you doing Friday night?"

She says "I'm hanging out with a friend

"that I haven't seen in ages."

I say, "Great, can I come?"

You know what she says?

"No, it's a girls' night."

but just yesterday we're hanging out

and her phone is just

sitting there in front of me.

I thought I'd take a little look.

I mean if she's got nothing to hide,

she won't mind me looking, right?

- Makes total sense.

- I see all these text

messages from some guy saying,

"Can't wait to see you.

"I have so much to say.
