Hello, Ellie.


You're looking well.

You too.


I'm glad we can do this.

Do what, Adam?

Get together

without hostilities.

Well, fine.

Let's get started.



Can I get

anything for you, sir?

Um. Oatmeal, coffee.

Okay, great.

Be right back.

Yeah, fine. Fine, fine.


How have you been?

What have you been up to?

- Busy. Very busy.

- Me too.

Ugh, I had to rush back

from Paris

to give a lecture

at the New School.

My little vacation

already seems like

a distant memory of poof.


I didn't ask

what you've been doing.

I have no interest at all in

your wonderful time in Paris.


- Fair enough.


Here's your oatmeal, sir.

I suppose the next time

we see each other

will be at

Maud's graduation.

Mm. I haven't had

the heart to tell her

that I have a commitment

in London.

The Gielgud is doing a revival

of Spanish Pipedream.

It opens that

same weekend, so

it's regrettable.

It's not regrettable.

It's unacceptable.

I don't need a dose of your

moral superiority, Ellie.

I'm totally

supportive of Maud.

She's at my apartment,

working in my office right now.

Are you that desperate

for applause, Adam?

You're gonna miss

the most important day

of your daughter's life for

a play you wrote 20 years ago?

I'm not even gonna

dignify that.

I have an obligation,

end of story.

Maybe you do, or maybe

it's like that opening in Prague

which was just an excuse for you

to bang Miss Czech Republic

at the Hotel Chodska

for two weeks.

For crying out loud, Eleanor,

would you please grow up?

I was wondering

why I ordered this.

Hey. Okay, all right.

Very nice.

Very, very

James Cagney.

Now let's just

get out of here.





Do you mind

not watching me?


Do I make you nervous?


This is very precise work.


That's the most conversation

that I've gotten out

of you all week.

I was beginning to think

that you'd taken a vow

of silence or something.

Excuse me.

Okay, then. Back

on the chain gang.

Nice getting

to know you, Sam.

Until next time.





Hello, Ruthie.

How are you, dear?


Hi, Ellie.

- I-I-I've only got a sec.

- Have you spoken to Adam?

No, I haven't

spoken to him, but...

But I'll let him know

you need to talk.

- I've been leaving messages.


Okay. I'll make sure

he gets back to you.



Yes, Elle,

what is it?


Ruth keeps calling me.

She's says been leaving

you messages.

Yeah, I know.

She's your best friend's wife.

Call the woman.

Vincent's been dead

for five years.

Well, she's alone,

and she's heartbroken.

No one ever died

of a broken heart.

Just call her back.

Okay, yeah. Fine.

Fine, fine.

I-I'm at the gym.

The ties that bind.

No escaping them.


Hi, Jenny.

He has no idea

what's going on inside of me.

And-and what do you think

is keeping you from telling him?

He doesn't respond well

to emotional needs.

He shuts down

and becomes sullen.

Can you afford to

be silenced because

he's uncomfortable

with intimacy?

I keep getting the urge

to stop using birth control,

just to punish him.

Well, we should discuss

how you feel

punishing him

would help you.



Sorry, sorry, sorry.

One second, one second.

Oh, my God. I finally had an

insight that sticks to the page.


- Yeah.

[SIGHS] I was beginning to worry

that I'm really a big fraud.
