It's time for one of those weeks, and all four relationships are strained: Patricia and her husband Gavin have the shadow of grief between them; Terry believes that Diane has abandoned him for her work; Angela, who's built a successful business, belittles her husband Marcus, who works for her; Mike is cruel to Sheila, his religious, overweight wife. During the week, each person's secret comes out. Will these marriages survive?

meetings with our daughter.

Hey, that is not fair.

I am a good mother.

I draw the line right there.

I cannot believe you.

That was just hurtful.

Dianne, I'm not saying

that you're not a good mother.

That's not what I'm saying to you.

I just think your priorities

are in the wrong place.

That's all I'm saying to you, baby.

Dianne, we're talking.

You're picking up the phone.

Are you listening to me?

I hear you.

Yeah, but are you listening?

Oh, OK. OK, you know what?

It's just you and me

this weekend, OK?

Just the two of us.

Are you happy now?

Some kind of week this is gonna be.

You know, Dr. Agnew,

I was so worried

about the Shelia

and Mike characters.

Are they still married, or...

I really don't like

to discuss my friends,

but yes. Yes, they are

still married.

OK, but are they happy?


Shelia, I'm so excited

you invited me this year.

Thank you so much.

Oh, there was no way

I was gonna leave you home.

All that stress on your job.

You said it.

You needed a vacation.

OK. Wait a second.

I think... Shelia, wait.

Why don't you sit

over here by your husband?

No, no, no, no.

No, you sit right there, all right?

We got assigned seats

for a reason.

All right? Come on.

Sit, sit.

Be comfortable.

There might be

some nice single men

I could introduce you to

up in those mountains, girl.

Oh, Shelia, here we go again.

Lumberjacks. Ha ha!

I am find just the way I am, OK?

I'll tell you, you look good.

I like that new coat, girl.

Thank you.

Y'all gonna talk

the whole flight?

Well, we could... Hi.

I'm sorry, ma'am,

but we have a very full flight today.

Yeah. I bought

the tickets months ago.

I understand that,

but it is the airline's policy

that someone your size has to buy two seats.

Hmm. Mm-hmm. Don't even think
