Keep your mouth closed.|Don't let the air out.

I'm tired.

It's almost over.|Slowly. Slowly.

We're almost done.|Almost done.

Yes, another second.

I feel like a horse.

Yes, we're slowing down...

Don't stop,|keep walking, go to a walk.

Are you trying to kill me?

We're checking,|we're checking...

Your E. K. G. is fine.

Really?|- Yes.

Are you surprised?

Don't leave that here.

It's in the way.

Twenty trays of bagels...

Twenty trays.|- Twelve on each tray.

That makes...|- We'll see in a minute.

Wait a minute, wait, wait.

Four, five, six, seven, eight.|That's for you. - Forget it.

Stop it. Here, take it.|One, two, three...

You coming tomorrow to close|the deal?

I don't interfere with his affairs.

That's between you and him.|- A little uptight, your brother.

Let him pay up. Won't hurt him.

Someday you'll lose too.|- I never lose, buddy.

I was born to win.

Take care.|- You too.


It's not easy, Didi.|It's not easy.

You're going in one direction,|I'm headed in another.

So tell me where you're going,|I'd very much like to know.

Do you want a divorce?|- What?

What did you want to tell me?

It's not easy with you.

You always use|those agressive words

that spoil my appetite.

Go ahead, say it.|- Say what?

You wanted to talk,|so we're talking.

What did you want to tell me?

If it's about you being sterile,|then I know.

I've had my tests, Moshe.

What are you talking about?|What's the matter with you?

What are you getting upset about?

What got into you?|What's all this about sterility?

You're depressing me, Didi.|- I'm sorry.

You're depressing me.|- I didn't mean to.

What's with you?|Why are you talking about kids?

People see us, hear us,

they'll know what|we're talking about!

Moshe, it's important.|If we want to adopt a kid,

you have to decide|if you're with me or not.

Would you calm down?|Who's talking about adoption?

Who? Where did you get that idea?|From my mother?

Can you see us with kids?|Raising kids?

We don't even know|where we're going.

Besides, if it hasn't happened|so far, there must be a reason.

Everything's fine on my end.

So what do you think the reason is?

We're not headed in the|same direction.

We're getting off the subject.

I don't know, whenever we talk,|it's never fun.

All our conversations|have to be depressing.

Besides, once and for all,|I don't want any kids.

That's that. I don't want to raise|children in this crazy world.

I don't want kids|in this nutty, stupid country

where you never know whether|you'll get up tomorrow morning.

Stop spewing out those|worthless political ideas.

Want to go to Eilat?|- Eilat?

We'll get away,|get a change of air.

Not a bad idea, huh?

Your idea?|- Yes, sure.

Just the two of us?

I'm sure my dad|wouldn't want to come.

If we're with people who love us,|what's wrong with that? What?

Didi, what's the matter?


You mind if my mother|comes along?

Is that it?

What?|- Nothing, I tell you.

What? You don't want|my mother to come along?

Don't put words in my mouth.

I want us to separate.

What?|You want us to separate?

Are you back with him again?

With him? With whom?

You know exactly who I mean,|you b*tch.

How dare you bring all this up|with no reason!

You disgust me with your scenes.|I'm leaving!

It's just stuck there.|It's stuck right there.

Me looking for you in the middle|of the war, thinking a scud hit you.

And you, in the shelter,|screwing my best friend.

Why are you dragging that up? That|was 5 years ago. I've been honest.

Did you sleep with him?


Aren't you ashamed of yourself?

How could you?

Moshe, let me think about|what we'll do, okay?
