Oh great. Thanks.

Oh, shit.

Robert. Perfect.

Can I grab you for one moment?

Let me introduce you

to the guys from Milton.

I'm just giving them a little tour.

This is Robert Forrester.

Robert used to be at Joseph Keys.

Joseph Keys? Wow. Really?

Why did you leave?


Joseph's a great, great company, but

I really had to get out of the city.

The guns, the drugs, the prostitution...

It's a lot of fun, but after

a while it gets a little boring.

Okay. Sorry

to have interrupted you.

We should let you get

on with your work.

Gentlemen, if you'd follow me.

This way.

"The guns, the drugs,

the prostitution"?


So, it's Sally's and

my anniversary tonight.

- Oh, congratulations, man.

- Thanks man, thanks.

- I am screwed though...

- Oh, you didn't forget did you?

Yeah, I gotta go get some flowers

and chocolates and all that stuff...

that gets one laid, you know.

But I left my wallet at home.

You need to borrow some cash, man?

Would that be alright?

I feel bad asking.

No. Don't feel bad.

How much do you need?

- That's great.

- Allright.

You're a good man.

I could f*ck you right now.

I could, in a friendly

way though, not in a gay way.

Man, I think I'll take a pass.

Hey... Mister Wyncoop.

Hey Rabbit.


Are those for me?

- Thank you.

- You're welcome.

- You hungry?

- Always.

I thought you were

gonna kill me tonight.

Why do you have

a knife in your hand?

I keep thinking that

I hear somebody out there.

- Where? Out there?

- Yeah.

Greg! No!

Don't go outside please.

No Greg,

I didn't see anyone, Greg.

If there's anybody out here

I'm gonna cut your fucking head off!

There's nobody out there.

Would you please come inside?

You got to get a dog Jenny.

A Doberman, something mean and nasty.

Oh, great. What?

So it can attack me first?


Peace and quiet

driving you crazy yet?

This is rush hour here, you know.

So, how are you finding the place?

The house, it's great.

Yeah? Well, you know, we thought

of selling it at one point, but...

it was my mother's old place

just before she passed away, and...

Yeah, you said, you said.

We lived with her, you know...

the wife and I, just

after we got married.

Yeah. Bet that

wasn't much fun, huh?

No, no, no, no. We all got

on great together.

That's why we bought the house across

the way, so we could be closer to her.

Yeah well, if you need anything,

just let me know.

Okay. Thank you.

Hi. I'm so sorry I'm late.

Traffic was just insane.

Can we proceed, counsellor?

Yes. We have filed documents with

the state of New York for divorce.

I would like to state on behalf

of my client...

Wait. I'd like to have a word

with my husband before we start.

- Be careful...

- No, I know. It's okay.

Do you think I could talk

to you outside?



This is awkward.

Look, Robert, I know I'm the one

who wanted this divorce but...


I've changed my mind.


I'm joking.

I'm joking.

I'm joking.

I'm sorry, I thought it would

be funny, but it wasn't really funny.

Can we move on please?

This is quite an expensive meeting.

- Good point.

- Yes, yes of course.

I got your memo, and here's the deal

memo that your office drafted.

We just disagree on a few points...

Robert, Robert, hey...

Hi, Jack.

How are you doing? You got

here alright yeah? Good, good.

Look, I wanted to introduce you

to a friend of mine.

- This is Elaine.

- Hi.

She's 34, she's a doctor

and she's single.

This is my friend Robert,

he's 37, he's a designer...

he's soon to be divorced.

So you'll have a lot to talk about,
