- Mr. hart, everyone's still

waiting for you

in the conference room,

when you get around to it.

- Coming.


- You smell like perfume.

- Go back to sleep.

- I wasn't asleep. Can we talk?

- Sure. W-what do you

want to talk about?

Is that my belt?

- I wanted to go

to that painting retreat.

- Oh, god!

This is not a good time.

- It's never a good time.

- I told you there is no way

that you can go

to a retreat right now.

Who would take care of the kids?

It's two weeks.

- Painting is what

I've always wanted to do

and I'm scared

that if I don't do it...

- Jill, come on.

We need you here.

- Is everything okay at work?

I saw something on the news.

- Yeah, it's-it's fine.

We just...

Don't believe everything

that you hear.





- I had an accident

in Tiffany's bed.

- What are you looking at?

- I thought I saw

that dog again.

- So, Max, you're done

with soccer at 3:00.

I have to pick up Cindy

from ballet at 3:30

so, please make sure you're

on the corner right on time.

Not at your locker, not at...

Dad's here for breakfast.

- Time to go.

- It's only 7:

- Let's go now.

- Good mornin'!

- Bye, dad.

- Bye, tiff. Love you.

- Love you, Cind.

- Love you too, daddy.

- Have a good day.

- Bye, dad.

- Bye.

- I love you.

- Alright.

- Have a good day at work.

- You know it!

- Are you gonna be home

for dinner?

- I will do my best.

- I'm so tired, bill.

You don't understand how

difficult it is

to keep it together.

- Okay, okay, stop.

- I don't know if I can

keep it together.

- Hey, good night's sleep.


Will you let me

get you some pills.

You just need some sleep,


You haven't had a good night's

sleep in a while.

Well, let you let me

get you some pills

that will help you

sleep at night finally?

- I'm terrified

I'm gonna do something.

- Mom, can we go in this century,


Guys, guys, come on.

Don't worry about my mom.

- I love you.


- I need to talk to you.

- Hmm.

- Stop, I'm serious.

- What?

- They fired me.

My whole floor.

- What? When?

- Are you just getting here?

Did you not hear?

- I was running late.

- It's a massacre.

You have to go and do something.

- This is unacceptable.

I'll take care of it.

Don't worry.

- Exactly. Mm-hm. Yes.

- Uh, Steven...

- Sorry. I, I-i can't.

This is important.

- Hey. Um...

I like your tie.

- Did you fire Annabelle?

- Who the f*ck is Annabelle?

- Oh, she's, um, uh...

Sits on the second floor.

Uh, s-she's-she's

a really good kid

and she's not that expensive.

- I really don't think

that you understand

the grave circumstances

that we're in right here,

right now.


Yes, I fired Annabelle

and I fired 179 other

employees this morning.

- Okay, well, I-I'm not talking

a 179 other people.

I'm just talking about Annabelle. Well, if

you'd like to tender your resignation, bill

then you know what?

I could restore the employment

of the entire second floor.

All you have to do is sign

right here on the dotted line.

Go ahead.

Sign it.

- Is it really that bad?

- It's really that bad.

- Um...

- Sign it.

- No, that's like... That's okay.

- Sign it.

- Um, it's...

- Sign it.

- It's probably... that's...

You probably made

the right decision.

- Just sign it.

- Honey...

We thought you'd be home.

I postponed dinner

as long as I could.

You never give me a choice.

There's a dog watching me.

Dog's always in the same spot.

Been here a while.

I feel like, I can't breathe.

- We've been finished forever.

May I please be excused?

If you're not gonna answer,
