Russel?

[door squeaks]

[gasps]

[breathing heavily]

Russel, there's someone

in here!

Russel!

Honey, what's wrong?

What's wrong? What is it?

There was someone here.

I got you.

I got you. You're safe.

There's no one in here, Lauren.

I got you.

Hey.

We gotta get out of here.

I just want you to feel safe.

Okay?

- I love you.

- I love you too.

[Russel] Wow, look at

this place.

Lauren. Russel.

I'm Lance, sales agent.

Welcome to twenty-first

century living.

I'll like you to meet out

head concierge, Dominique.

Hi.

- And our service engineer, Ryan.

- A pleasure.

I hope you'll be joining us.

[Lance] Right, if you'd like

to follow me this way.

We have seven different scents

pumped into the lobby

and elevator.

We've recruited an acclaimed

interior designer,

lighting specialist,

acoustical scientist,

even a feng shui expert, to help

us create the ultimate comfort

and tranquility.

Now, our amenities include a

state-of-the-art fitness center,

outdoor pool, games room, 20

seat multimedia screening room.

All suites have access to

our 24-hour surveillance

of all key venues.

- [beep]

- Okay. Please follow me.

Wireless lighting, QED window

shades with sun control fabric,

and a fully integrated

telecommunications

cabling package.

Why don't you take your time?

Feel free to have a look around.

Go upstairs.

What do you think?

I think, uh,

no one deserves to

live this well.

Hey,

70-hour work weeks, three years

without a vacation.

We had two priorities:

security and serenity.

And unless you wanna move into

Fort Knox, we're not gonna get

more secure than this.

And as for serenity...

[sighs]

I think living outside of the

city would be great for us.

You know?

[sighs]

Whatever you decide.

[switch clicks]

[water running]

[dripping, static]

Let's do this.

Baby.

This is gonna be so good

for both of us.

It's, uh...

it's, uh, big, gorgeous,

modern, safe.

An embarrassment of riches,

really.

[Beatrice] And yet?

I don't know, I'm just...

I-I'm still so scared.

Scared to, uh, you know, to,

uh, join the world again.

Scared to pick up a paint brush.

That blank canvas.

But, um...

I think I'm mostly scared

because I know that if I don't

stop being scared I'm just

gonna lose everything.

Right?

[thunder]

Still working out the kinks.

You look beautiful.

If you get uncomfortable,

if this is a crushing bore,

we're an elevator ride

away from home.

- I know.

- Okay.

- I'll get my jacket.

- Okay.

[light clicks]

[indistinct chatter]

Hey, sweetheart.

- I'm Margo.

- Hi, Margo. Russel.

- Scott's wife.

- Nice to meet you.

Nice to meet you, too.

- I'm Lauren.

- Hi Lauren.

Come on, let's ditch

the excess baggage.

[giggles]

Phillip Starks, 120.

Inherited his father's

Fortune 500 marketing

and advertising agency.

Brilliant. And about as close

to the ideal neighbor

as you can possibly ever find.

[glasses clink]

Gwendolyn Serota-Talal.

Married to a Saudi kazillionaire

who's never around,

leaving her with

far too much time

on her criminally

unflawed hands.

[laughs]

Tim Hoyle.

Something to do with geoscience.

Single, bit peculiar,

but perfectly harmless.

Oh.

Don't you stray far.

[woman humming

"Beautiful Dreamer"]

Well, I believe we have

two things in common.

- May I?

- Oh, please.

So word around the building

is you're a painter.

I am.

While I've never advanced beyond
