- ESTHER:
Harry?

- It's all right, Esther.

I can't sleep.

HARRY:
There is a story

about the Greek gods.

They were bored,

so they invented human beings,

but they were still bored,

so they invented love.

Then they weren't bored any longer,

so they decided to try love

for themselves.

And finally they invented laughter,

so they could stand it.

(INDISTINCT CHATTERING)

(CHEERING)

- Harry!

- HARRY:
Bradley?

What are you doing away from Jitters?

I just took the afternoon off. I...

My wife's got a softball game

out here today.

Ah.

Honey?

Hey, I'd like you to meet

Professor Stevenson.

Harry, this is Kathryn.

- Nice to meet you.

- Nice to meet you.

He's a... He's a regular over at the shop.

(CROWD CHEERING)

WOMAN:
Take her down!

One more! One more!

- HARRY:
She seems very determined.

- (CHUCKLING) You have no idea.

BRADLEY:
Wait for your pitch, sweetie.

Yeah!

- There it is! There it is! Okay, take two!

- JENNY:
Gray! Melissa!

- BRADLEY:
There you go!

- Right here.

BRADLEY:
Yeah!

(BRADLEY WHOOPING)

Don't even think about it.

Not bad, huh?

- Not bad.

- Yeah, yeah, yeah!

BRADLEY:
Take the lead. Go! Go!

(KATHRYN GRUNTS)

(CROWD SIGHING)

WOMAN:
Nice save out there.

Don't say I didn't warn you.

(CROWD CHEERING)

(ALL WHOOPING)

(CHATTERING)

I'm sorry about it.

No. Well, that's true, though.

Answer me this.

If your sport's

suddenly being taken seriously,

how come we're wearing long pants

and you guys are still wearing shorts?

Because we're hot.

Oh!

Hmm!

- Hey, that was a great play.

- Thank you.

Join us. Sit down.

- Yeah.

- Why not?

It was really good. Very athletic.

- Hey, I'm Jenny.

- Hi. Kathryn.

- Nice to meet you.

- Hi. Bradley Smith. I'm her other half.

And this is Harry Stevenson.

- Hi.

- Nice to meet you.

How long have you guys been married?

- Almost...

- Six years and a little bit of change.

You know, I think I'm going to go

put some money in that jukebox.

Will you save my spot for me?

- Yeah.

- Yeah.

Oh.

BRADLEY:
Anyway, I mean,

I could tell you one thing, they...

They take the game seriously.

I mean, they're practicing

three nights a week.

HARRY:
Well, that's how you get it done.

BRADLEY:
Yeah?

HARRY:
If you'd studied that hard, Bradley,

you might have been a decent student.

I agree.

(TURN PLAYING)

(INDISTINCT CHATTERING)

I want to see

- Hi.

- Hi.

What people saw

I want to feel

(WHISPERING) Hi.

Like I felt before

I want to see

the kingdom come

Excuse me. Thank you.

I want to feel

Yeah, well, thank you.

Forever young

You hear that song?

That song goes out

from Jenny to Kathryn.

From now on, that'll be our song.

I want to live in a world

where I belong

I want to live

And I believe that

it won't be very long

If we turn, turn

- ESTHER:
Harry?

- Hey.

How was your walk? Did I miss anything?

A cool breeze, softball game,

and two women falling in love.

- With each other?

- And one of them is married.

Funny thing is, nobody noticed.

Not even the husband, two feet away.

(CHUCKLES)

- I'm sorry I missed that.

- I imagine he will be, too.

His name is Bradley Smith.

Went to school with Aaron.

(SOFT MUSIC PLAYING ON STEREO)

- Good morning, Professor.

- Oscar.

Where's Bradley?

He called in.

Said he'll be a little late this morning.

- No peeking.

- No peeking.

All right. Here we go. Ready?

(DOGS BARKING)

Oh, God. Forget it! No way!

There is no way that I'm going in there!

Honey, honey...

Honey, this is really important.

Why are you doing this to me?

Because you can't go through

your entire life

being afraid of little puppies.
