Hi, you've reached Meryl Morgan.

I can't take your call right now,

so leave a message and

have a great day! Thanks.

Hello, it is me. Your...your husband.

At least legally I'm still your husband,

as recognized by the

State of New York.

And who need to argue

with the Governor?

I wanted to call and just say hello,

as it is aproaching the three months anniversary of our "being separated".

I thought perhaps it might be nice to get together as you know,

as occasions like this only come around

once in a lifetime.

And, oh yes, and I saw the cover of

New York Magazine, writte "Estate Issue".

And there you were. And you looked lovely,


You are staring out from every news stand,

and bus and taxi.

And is,

It is genuinely incredible

how you have built your business

into the premier boutique real estate firm in the city...

I'm quoting here from the article.

I have five copies. This way,

if we ever get back together

and lose yours, we are covered...

Hi, you've reached Meryl Morgan.

I can't take your call right now,

so leave a message and

have a great day! Thanks.

Anyway the point is...

The point is that I am sad.

And I miss you.

And I bitterly regret of what I did.

And it would be very, very nice, if you,

called fact

if we could see each other.

I hope you are getting the gifts.

I know they are not all... perfect.

The ice sculpture, I can see

was a disaster.

I did specified they shouldn't

leave it if you weren't home.

And I will be suing.

Talking of which, I must

get back to work.

I'm actually in court.

I have a man here...

Isn't this a beautiful view?

You can take this whole apartment just by charging people to come

and look at this.

And, if you like this,

you are going to love these.

What I call,

the ball room, or the...

Grand salon.

It's the perfect combination

of classic architecture,

and enunciate elegance.

You are pregnant?

I mean, if you are planning on having a baby,

this is the most magical place.

- How many children do you have?

How many? Let me see...

I have...

I have zro.

My husband and I are separated.

I know what you are thinking.

The clock is ticking, right? L'horloge tic-tac, oui!

But I'm...You know, I'm considering adoption and...

Got to stay optimistic, you know.

Don't get down on yourself.

Mister Morgan, I have the depositions

on the Anderson case for you.

Excellent, I'm here to page, though.

Now, where were the stars about?

You can buy a name of star now.

It's seventy-five dollars and you get

sliction map and the certificate.

Can we look for something more...impressive.

Can I buy the constellation?

I don't know. You can buy a black hole.

I'm not sure, the black hole isn't exactly

where our message is depointing our relationship.

Slucious, redante.

Thank you and thank you to everyone

at The National Breast Cancer Foundation.

I'm so honored to be here tonight

On behalf of Park Avenue Realty.

Thank you to Jimmy, my waiter,

a table number two. Yes, you!

I'm not done with dessert yet.

This eve, we present the crises.

Are we going to use this crises

to come out stronger,

better and

more powerful than ever before?

You bet we are!


what that means...

I'm sorry.

Well I...Basically, what I'm sayin' is a...

We want your money!

Right now!

- Great speech!

- Thank you.

- And you look fantastic tonight, by the way.

- Thank you.

I still don't entirely understand

what are you doing here.

Breast cancer.

I'm against it.

Look, I just want to talk. I'll talk now,

I'll talk later, I'll talk tomorrow,

I'll talk over lunch, diner, brunch, snack time.

Ok, I get it.

- You are available for talking.

- Yes, yes.

Hey Jackie !

Jackie, how very nice, how are you ?

Mister Morgan.

- What do I have tomorrow ?

- That Pina lunch.

Barbecue I imagine?

- What about after lunch?

- Excuse me. Hello Mrs Morgan.

- Hi Adam.

- After lunch you have the former conference call.

- Do I dare ask about the diner?

- Meryl got the shine at seven o'clock at Mr Rabelais.

You've got Mr Thompson for diner at seven.

You know, I think it just would be easier if Jackie and Adam

spoke to each other.

- Excelent idea.

- See that.

What happens with Paul at the lunch?

- Well..

- Don't mumble, Adam. Let's get it.

- How's your apartment?

- It's good.

So much more space without the golf clubs.

- How's your hotel?

- It's nice, it's nice.

There is no one sicken the snooze alarm,

for fifteen minutes before actually want to wake up.

I really enjoy not having anyone

walking to the master bedroom wearing their shoes

filled with dirt and germs from whole of the city...

That must be very, very nice. As is not stepping

on discarded Lady Gillette in the shower.

Which I actually become to miss.

I can push Mr Rabelais at nine o'clock

if Adam can reschedule Mr Morgan dinner.

- I think I can't.

- Just do it, be a man.

Excelent then...

Shall we say at ?


- Great. Terrific.

- Good night.

Good night.


Did you get the yucca?

I know you like plants.

And far, far away there is now galaxy

called Meryl.

You have to stop sending me things.

It's just getting very awkward.

I understand. I will.

I promise.

I just have one more little thing.

Ok, look, i know you always wanted

us to go, and I procrastinated

but I thought this might make up for it.

Dr Tobin is apparently the best
