Bugger, bugger, bugger!

Somebody shoot that sitar player now!

I don't care how beautiful

your tiny buns are,

you all look like cows in my lens!

Somebody get me an art director

who's not f***ing color blind.

We are selling coffee.

Just like you do with your cigarettes

here in America.

We want to make sure we reach

ten and twelve-year-olds. Our future buyers.

Future buyers.

We were promised

the campaign would imitate GOT MILK?

But so far we've spent three million yen

in two days and what do we have?

Where are the pictures?

Where are the pictures?

I see camera. I see photographer.

I see models.

I don't see coffee. I don't see pictures.

I don't see pictures.

With all due respect,

what's happening out there

is way beyond our comprehension.

It's genius.

If all you want is pictures, take them.

They're yours. They're temps.

Take them back to Japan.

Put them on every bus

and every billboard that you can find.

If you're not happy with

what I'm doing here,

I'll shut down production immediately.

I can't say that.

Because of you.

You.

He just walked away.

- Coke?

- No.

Drinking.

- Go away!

- It's Claire.

Come in.

It's horrible out there, CD.

I can't find the right angle.

The lights are too hot, they're too cold.

I'm not feeling it. I'm not feeling anything.

Last week I was in Times Square

and one billboard caught my eye.

- Is it still there?

- The week before I went to Paris.

Now, that was perfection, CD.

The lines, the colors.

I asked for you. No, I demanded you.

Now sure, you may be a pain in the ass

and a drunk.

And you usually try to kill yourself

one or two times during our shoots.

- I know.

- But in the end,

brilliance.

I'm back! I love you all.

Harry, get me a nice crescent moon

across the bed.

Where's my favorite production designer?

I need some caramel-colored sheets here.

Let's make some magic, loveys.

Yeah? All right.

It's blurry.

Thinking.

Like

the world isn't real.

The only thing that is real

is what I want.

I can't stop it. No.

Whatever I do, it just... It just goes and goes

and goes and goes.

What's the point, you know?

Everything's a f***ing lie anyway.

It's f***ing pointless.

- Doc.

- Hello, Hector.

Still don't understand why you don't have

a big ass practice up in some penthouse.

You know, rich folks

pay you a lot more than the state.

- Yeah.

- Give a holler if you need a hand.

- Okay.

- Rachel's in a...

- Hell of a mood today.

- That's right.

- Thanks.

- You know the drill.

Okay.

I am taking my medication.

I am taking my medication. Look at me.

I'm taking my medication.

You just tell me what I have to do

to get out of here.

If you were locked in this little room,

you'd be crazy, too.

You'd be crazy, too. Anybody would.

I don't belong in here.

I don't belong here.

- What did they think?

- They're thrilled.

And that's just off the temps.

- What do you think?

- Brilliant. Bloody brilliant!

- Let's celebrate.

- I have more work to do.

And then I need to go home

and see my husband.

Back home to that husband of yours?

Come on, just one little drink

- with your Uncle Elliott.

- Well, you celebrate for both of us.

- Or how about a dip?

- Don't you dare! See?

- My husband knows you're harassing me.

- How do you know it's him?

Special ring tone. It's our wedding song.

That's so f***ing sweet!

I think I lost a tooth.

I owe you one.

Hey, honey.

You just saved my new pair of shoes.

Well, I guess it went well as usual, then.

It was touch and go around noon,

you know,

but the twinkling lights of LA

made it all worthwhile.

That's great!

Do you want anything special tonight

for dinner?

Surprise me.

Let's see,

I found this new recipe for sea bass

- and I thought maybe I...

- I said surprise me.

- Okay, all right.

- I love you.

- Hey, you talking to me?

- You and only you.

I... Hello, Claire?

Claire...

- Thanks guys.

- Come on, girlfriend.

- One glass before you head out.

- To a great shoot.

So I take it no little pink-colored sticks yet?

No.

- And it's blue you want.

- It's been a year?

Over a year.

I need some beautiful women

to come and save me!

I'm drowning!

What's going on?

It's just tough, you know?

Trying to have kids.

It's difficult in bed,

just fertility tests and ovulation kits.

You know, it just becomes one lifeless act

to have children. It's hard.

You just need a little spice, girl.

Turn up the heat a little.

Yeah?

Things get boring with my wife and I.

We've been together since college.

When I sense some lazy action...

Cher.

- Cher?

- Or Jake Gyllenhaal from Brokebaak.

I'm telling you, works every time.

You think?

I know.

Who's that?

Coming.

Who is it, anyway? Yes? Yes?

I didn't know it was Halloween.

I didn't think

that was for a few months, still.

Come on in, come on in.

I've got to get some stuff off the...

What are you doing, Claire?

- Claire, what are you doing?

- It's Lucia.

Lucia?

Jonathan's got some food on the...

I've gotta get the vegetables... All right.

- Sit down.

- All right.

Well, the...

I can smell the food is...

Maybe I should close the blinds

so the neighbors can't see.

Maybe we should charge them.

Claire, maybe we should go upstairs.

Maybe I should charge you.

Maybe I should pay, but...

Claire, what are you doing? Oh, Claire...

Claire's not here.

- I've gotta go deal with the rice.

- Let it boil.

Will you...

You're very nice, Lucia.

That's nice, Lucia.

Okay, but Jonathan's got some food

cooking for Claire.

I can...

Come on, Claire.

All right, now it's burning! Now it's burning.

Food?

Can you smell the food, Claire?

- Jonathan!

- Damn it.

Crap.

- You okay?

- Yeah, I'm okay.

Great, blasting sea bass.

Okay.

Do you...

Dinner's served.

- It's good.

- Good. Thanks.

Well,

you're obviously not feeling satisfied.

I didn't say that.

No, I told you that our age difference

would catch up to us.

I did warn you.

Honey, that's not it.

It has nothing to do with it.

- Oh, really?

- Yeah.

I've been to your sets.

I've seen those perfectly chiseled

twenty-somethings

- with their abdomens of steel.

- They're gay.

Half of them are gay.

The other half's gay.

They just don't know it yet. Okay?

It's difficult, I suppose,

with these hormone shots and everything.

It just makes it so... What's the word?

- Clinical?

- Clinical, yeah.

Clinical is the word.

Well, but it's okay. I mean, I suppose,

it's just bound to happen anyway.

I mean, this is what happens

to couples, you know,

who've been married for a while.

The passion wears thin.

And we used to laugh.

Somehow we just have to establish

a method to bring back the laughter.

I love you.

Well, I love you, too. But it's not about love.

It's about the thrill. It's about, for example,

when you walked in the door, I should have

- become Roberto to your Lucia. I...

- It was a dumb idea.

No, I mean...

It's not necessarily a bad idea.

I mean, in theory...

Honey, enough with the theory.
