you know, to see

if she feels up to it.

If who feels up to it?

Keith, come on, you know

I hate all that stuff.

That's what being here

is all about,

blood, IVs, puking.

Yeah.

Listen, they're playing

your song.

EMILY:
A little help here!

Let's walk

to the bathroom.

I'm so sorry.

Here. Shh. No, stop it.

Hi, Barry.

Mom.

Thanks for coming.

Wouldn't miss it.

Hey, Barry.

Hey, Em.

Can you clean up the bed?

Sure.

My cowboy sheets.

Awesome.

EMILY:
How's it going?

Almost done.

You set in here?

Sure.

Keith, she's

puking up shit.

Yeah.

Look, the honest

to God truth,

I'm down here because

my mother's dying.

I want you

to do this for her.

Yeah, it's like her last wish,

something she never had.

Yeah, she really wants

highspeed Internet access.

No good.

She'll be dead by then.

Is there some kind of

rush fee I can pay?

BARRY:
Oh, this whole

dying-mother thing

really motivates people.

It's too bad you can

only use it once.

Do you think?

Here you go.

What's this?

A cheat sheet

from the hospice.

"The stages of dying."

They're coming tomorrow.

We have to be ready.

Haven't you seen

the bumper stickers,

"One day at a time"?

That's my philosophy.

You Hollywood guys,

always in and out of rehab.

You make me sick.

What is it, booze again?

It may be AA,

but it's also Zen.

Be in the moment.

Nothing happens

until it happens.

I can't affect the future,

so I choose not to worry

about it.

That's called denial.

Exactly.

In LA we call it Zen.

Kind of a mystical,

far-Eastern denial.

You know, alcoholics

can be like that.

Well, I'm not an alcoholic.

Well, not yet.

I know it's hard,

just listen.

"Death is a natural process.

"It is normal

to feel emotional."

Bullshit.

When it's my turn,

they're gonna have to

carry me out kicking
