Einstein was then celebrating...

...the 70th birthday anniversary...

...and there was a colloquium|given for him.

And he said:

"God doesn't play dice|with the universe. "

No, he just plays hide-and-seek.

Learn to write screenplays,|television scripts, plays...

Jesus, they're so full of it.

You can't teach writing.|You expose students...

...to good work and hope|it inspires them.

Some can write,|others will never learn.

You lose patience|if the student isn't Dostoyevsky.

No, that isn't true. That's crazy.

It's worth it when you get|a gifted pupil.

A girl in my class|wrote a great story:

"Oral Sex in the Age of|Deconstruction."

- It's full of insight, romantic...|- They're here.

Jack will wanna take us|for Chinese food again.

I think Sally's tired|of our pasta places.

- Hi.|- Is it supposed to rain?

Hi.

Let me take your coat.

I opened some white wine.|You want some?

They're doing something at 80th.

Jack? You want some cold white wine?

When I go to your place, it's murder.

So, Chinese, right? I can't|talk you into Italian?

Listen, don't get crazy, you know?

Before we go out to dinner|we wanna tell you something.

- You want to?|- Go ahead.

- What? What?|- Somebody tell us.

Jack and I are splitting up.

Oh, I see. It's just...|Nothing serious.

We discussed this for a long time|and we both think it's for the best.

You are joking, of course.

Don't make a big deal, okay?|We're fine.

- Are you serious?|- We are. We're fine.

- We both... We discussed it.|- It's mutual.

What do you mean?

Let's go talk about this at dinner.

I'm not going out to dinner.

Since when has this been decided?|What are we talking about here?

We've been discussing it.

Don't be worried.|There's no hostility.

You see? We're fine.

- What is the reason?|- Don't...

Gabe, it's none of our business.

Don't turn this into a tragedy.|It's a positive thing.

How can you break up? It's insane.

You're Jack and Sally.|You got two kids.

Our kids are grown up.|They're in college.

We won't bore you with details.

I can't get my mind around this.|Since when? You get along so well.

She's right.|Have you met other people?

Gabe, it's not our business.

- I'm fascinated by this.|- I feel sick.

We didn't wanna ruin anything.

- We wanna see what it's like to be...|- Apart for a while.

Don't not support us.|We've gotten the nerve...

This is insanity.|You'll be back together...

She's keeping the place in Riverdale.|I'm looking for a place in town.

I just feel shattered.

- Oh, come on, Judy.|- I do.

Come on, let's eat.

What do you mean,|"Come on, let's eat"?

"Come on"? I can't eat.

- Don't get angry.|- I'm not!

- I'm not angry!|- I knew it.

You march in here and announce|you're breaking up?

You have two kids!|Why are you doing this?

This is not our business.

Why not? They're our|closest friends!

There is no one traumatic event.

People grow apart. It's a lot of|little personal things. Now stop it.

I don't wanna hear this bullshit.

- Why is she so upset?|- Judy...

She cares about us.

Well, I care about you too.

- We're fine, okay?|- Judy!

- We wanna do this.|- This is crazy.

Why are you taking|this so personally?

I'm upset! All right?|Can't I be upset?

I've discussed this in therapy.

You have? You never said a word!

- You said this wasn't our business.|- We were all so close!

I assumed we were.

She's very upset.

Will you please not|turn this into a wake?

Why is this such a personal thing|for you? I don't know what to say.

Let's just go out to dinner|and forget it.

- Judy, come on!|- I knew this would happen.

So why were you so upset?
