You don't give me a kiss.

Well, give me one.

There. That's more like it.

Where's that money

you made today?

Right here in my pocket.

Well, now, hand it over.

Not much here, is there?

Slow day, you know.

Yeah, you been having

more and more of those.

I'm really not sure it's worth

you working there anymore.

I think I might rather have you

be at home

making me pies all day long.

You didn't ask me

how my day was.

How was your day?

Ask me like you

care about it.

How was your day, Earl?

Well, you know,

Johnson's on my case again,

about the mortgages and everything.

But I don't make the bank policy,

and I told him that,

but he doesn't listen.

"I Hate My Husband Pie. "

(singing in hum) "Baby don't you cry, gonna make a pie, gonna make a pie with a heart in the middle" You take bittersweet chocolate and don't sweeten it. You make it into a pudding and drown it in caramel.

You're not listening to me.

Yeah, I am.

What I say?

You were bitching about Mr. Johnson.

What were the exact words I said?

Well, I mean, I can't repeat

them verbatim...

You don't listen to me!

Hurts my feelings.

Please just say you're sorry

so I can let you out this car

so you can make my dinner.

I'm sorry, Earl,

for not being able

to repeat your words verbatim,

something I should be able to do.

Whenever I need it.

Whenever you need it.

All right, then.

You look handsome tonight, Early.

Thank you, honey.

It's been a long time since

you called me Early.

I like it.

And you look pretty tonight.

Maybe a little tired is all.
