Where's daddy?

I love it.

Are we going to

the mountains tomorrow, daddy?

Are we? Are we? Are we?

I love you. - I love you too.

Goodnight. - Goodnight.


Oh, my God!

I always do it.

What? - Huh?


Wife! - Yeah!

Wife-hoo! - wife!

That was awesome.

Alright, my turn.

This is fun.

- Whoa! Whoa whoa whoa!

Are you okay, daddy?

- Yeah! Yeah!



Freddie, watch it. - Oh, God!

Oh, shit! - Freddie!

Oh, my God!

Oh! Shit!

That was kind of fun.

Hi. I'm looking for Wall.

For Otto Wall.


I... I never should've

let Freddie drive so fast.

That was so... so dumb of me.

What are you thinking?


What are you thinking?

What if you lose your foot?

- My foot?

The doctor said

that there was a chance.

No. No way. No chance.

Why did you have

to do this now?

Hey, come here.

- What are we gonna do?

Come here.

Come here. Listen. - Otto...

Come over here. Come over here.

Listen, I'm telling you,

we're gonna get through this.

Okay. We're gonna be just fine.

This is nothing.

It's a nick, it's a scratch.

We'll be fine.

Come here. Give me a hug.

You don't believe me?

Mama, why did this happen

to daddy?

Why do these things

always happen to daddy?

He doesn't pay attention.


What are we going

to do with you?


- You saw the caller I.D.

It's Ginny Summerson.

Your senior counselor

from Camp Mishancominga.

How are you? - Goo...

- And guess what?

Liz, Collie and I

are organizing

a 20th anniversary

camp reunion.

Great. - Isn't that great?

And Russell

and Randall Kendriff will come.

And Lara Cuff.

Lara Cuff.

Ha ha. I thought

that would get you.

Now listen, Otto, I'm gonna send

you the e-vite and you come, okay?

Bye. - Goodbye. Bye.

I wanna pray for daddy.

Pray? - Yes.

I want God to be nice to him.


I need you to come to

my therapist this afternoon

at 3 o'clock. Can you make it?

Um... you have a therapist?

So Otto.

How is your foot?

Are you comfortable there?

Oh, yes, thanks. It's fine.

Thank you.

Yes. Annie thinks that

you're almost healed.

I'm so glad you've been...

Had quite a time of it,

haven't you?

Oh, it's, you know...

it's not such a big deal.

Well, you're lucky in a way.

Oh, I know. I am.


It's nice to put a face

to your name finally.



I... I... I need to...

I think...

I'm sorry.

It's alright.

Your marriage is over.

Excuse me.

Your marriage. It's over.

No. What?

And Annie would like

for you to get

your own place

as soon as possible.


And arrangements

will be made, of course

for your daughter.

Uh, responsibilities

that have to be shared.

You both work.

So Annie needs for you

to be flexible...

Annie, Annie, what is this?

I have a lawyer.

Gus Menzies.

The guy from TV? - I know Gus.

The "Gotta Call Gus" guy?

He's very good.

- Wait a minute. Wait.

You have a lawyer?

Now, hold on.

Annie, are you serious?

I mean this is... this is crazy.

It's always hard to hear.

Don't you think that

we should discuss this?

No, no, it's not open

to discussion.

No. I want you to leave.

Why? What's happened?

It's better for everybody.

Why? I mean, don't you think

we should try and find

someone to... to talk to

about this or some kind of

I mean, if you're... We

could get counseling.

I mean if you really want to...

I don't want to.

- If you're serious.

I don't understand.

Are you that unhappy?

You know we don't need

to get into that right now.

Now is not the time.

Now is not the time?

You know this session really

is just to notify you

of Annie's intention.

Will you please... Please.
