I don't feel sick.

Okay. Um, are you drinking?

But, uh, did the doctor say

that was...

JEN:
The doctor says

- is that enough of an answer?

- Its fine.

You know what you're doing.

JEN:
Suddenly, you care?

I always care.

[RATTLING]

JEN:
Just tell me that

everything's gonna be okay.

Um, Jen, you know, you and Megan

go finish that wine,

and I'm gonna be back

before you wake up. How's that?

But you can't just say

everything's going to be okay?

Okay? Uh...

Okay, um, I... I'm sorry, honey,

I got to go.

Okay, well, call me later.

- Yep.

My man, can you hear me?

MAN:
You left so quick.

Uh, yes, you said I was fighting

the morning.

MAN:
There's something

I need to tell you.

But listen, there are reports.

What... what reports?

Reports of what?

MAN:
They're packing up

on the border.

Pa... packing up?

Okay, I dunno what you mean.

Yes, yes, my man.

Right, they're leaving

Do you... do you hear me?

[INDISTINCT RADIO CHATTER]

[LINE RINGING]

JEN:
[ON PHONE] What?

Everything will be okay.

Hi.

Hi.

You know,

you should apologize.

For what?

For the wholly

unnatural thoughts

about your body you make

me have at night.

[LAUGHS] Stop it.

You're trying to be cute

and it's not working.

Not eve... not even a little?

Maybe a little.

[CHUCKLES]

Uh, how long is Megan gonna

be there for?

[SIGHS] Not much longer.

She's on the phone with Jeremy

right now.

Their kid just split her chin

on the edge

- of the coffee table.

- You really want one of those?

A husband?

Yeah, that's exactly

what I meant.

I'll let you know

when I find one.

[PLANE ENGINE RATTLING]

I can't wait to have

a kid with you.

Yeah, Sean, you know

that can't happen right now.

I know.

You know that... that moment

that all couples say they have,

when the...

the house is a mess,

and they're covered

in vomit,

and the kid's, like,

finally sleeping for 45 minutes,

and they look at each other

like, What the f*ck did we do?

I am... I am actually looking

forward to that.

We're gonna be

great at it.

[MOUTHS SILENTLY] We will...

And I'm...

I'm done flying.

After this, I'm done.
