- Thank you.

Ooh! Thanks.

- How was he?

- He was great!

Happy anniversary.

- Oh!

- What?

- Porsche again.

- Oh, honey.

Come here. No, no, no. Alice?

- Honey.

- Goddamn it.

Hey, it's 1:
00 in the morning.

People are trying to have sex up here!

Alice, there's nobody down there.

You're talking to a car.

Goddamn it!


- Alice.

- What a piece of shit. Damn it.

- Alice.

- Goddamn it. Shut up!

- Alice! Alice!

- Goddamn it!

- Alice, am I gonna like this?

- Here.

Shut up!


Fucking foreign car!

Okay, batter up!

Right here! Hey, batter, batter,

batter, batter, batter, batter!

Right here. Come on,

baby. Let's go.

I'll start your shower.

You're not suggesting

I go to work?


Okay. You promise

no one will be loud?

Six hundred kids? Sure.

Go on.

Get dressed, sugar.

We're runnin' late.

See, I'm not sure that

Matthew Wasserman's...

glance at your breasts rises to

the level of sexual harassment.

Well, what if he said,

"You know you want it. "

- Did he?

- No.

- But what if he did?

- Well, that would be closer.

I think if we can get him to lift up

your dress, we can put him away.

So, uh...

what is the deal with cutting

language lab- Shit!

Another self-mutilation day.

I'm checking on availability

for end-of-the-day wind-down.

Oh, come on. My problem's gotta

be more sordid than Shannon's.

Okay, a quick one.

Michael's got a trip.


- Hi. - Hey. -

Where's Alice?

That's right, where's Alice?


Amy! Amy! Amy, Amy, Amy, Amy,

Amy, Amy.

Listen, I, uh, got a trip.

I'm late, and Wayne's supposed to

meet me. I've got no way to call him.

He's waiting at my Lamaze class.

I just can't not show up. I-

Amy, Amy, uh, this is important.

I got a trip.

You're not saying my life

is less important?

Of course not.
