There was no one like Hal.

He met me at a party

and swept me off my feet.

"Blue Moon" was playing.

You know "Blue Moon?"


I still remember that.


Blue moon

And one more year

and I would have graduated.

But I quit BU to marry him. I mean,

what was I learning at school anyway?

I mean, can you picture me

as an anthropologist?


Is that a joke?

The sex was always great. Well,

he was nine years older than me.

He'd already made

and lost a fortune.

But then he made it back,

and more. I mean, much more.

God, he was dynamic.

Taught me everything I know

about real lovemaking,

not that I care to get too graphic.

Believe me when I tell you.

They tried six medications on me.

Cocktails, they call them.

The only cocktail that helped

was a Stoli martini.

I never trusted doctors.

Doctors put both my parents

in early graves.

I have never

been to San Francisco.

And Hal and I traveled everywhere.

I hear it's beautiful.

I'll be staying with my sister,

Ginger. She's divorced.

Biologically, she's not my sister.

She's adopted. We're both adopted.

I couldn't stand her ex-husband.

He used to hit her.

That's mine. The Vuitton.

My plan is to start a new life out here.


Put everything behind me

and start fresh.

Go West. Was it Horace Greeley

who said that? "Go West."

Oh, there's my family.

It was really nice talking to you.

Oh, I'll call you,

maybe for lunch.

I don't have your number.

Who's that woman you were talking to?

I was sitting next to her on the plane.

She was talking to herself.

I thought she said something to me.

I said, "What?"

But she couldn't stop

babbling about her life.


Where--? Where am I exactly?


You said 305 South Van Ness.


Can you wait, help me with my bags?



I don't know where she is.

She expected me.

The plane was on time.

Yes, I'm-- I'm--

You all right?

I'm fine. I just sometimes get

where I can't take a deep breath

and when I can, it makes me panic

and it makes it even worse.


Could I have some privacy?

Sure, sure.

Hello, Ginger?

Yes, I'm here.

I'm right in front of the place.

It is 305?


Ugh. Well, how long?

What? Where is it?

No, no, I see it.

Okay. Oh, okay.

Just-- Would you please hurry?

My sister left the keys in the bar.

Can you wait?



Is that it?

Thank you.

Oh, thank you.

Have a great day, all right?


So, what do you think?

I love it.

The fireplaces work. I don't

like when they're for show.

It's so light and airy

and the ceilings are so high.

How can anyone breathe

with a low ceiling? The view.

You wanted Fifth Avenue.

Central Park. Superb.

Oh, this space is perfect.

We hardly have to do a thing.

You shouldn't spoil me so.

Well, why not?

Who else am I gonna spoil?

Did I tell you my news?


Danny is gonna be living with us.

Oh, honey.

Oh, that's great news.

I worked it out with his mom,

her lawyers.

Oh, he'll be so much happier

when he's with us full-time.



Happy birthday, Danny.

Kids at school say we're really rich

and that you give money to charity.

Sure I do. You gotta remember

as you go through life

to share what you earn

with the less fortunate.

Not everyone is as lucky

as we are.


Yes, ma'am.

Another bottle of the Margaux.



Excuse me.

It would look perfect.

Wouldn't wash me out?

No, not at all.

Not the way he--

Oh, isn't he sweet?
