- Come in.

- Hi, Mama.

How you doing?

Hanging in there?

- Yeah.

- Okay, go ahead and lay back.

And scoot down.

All right, let's see

how we're healing up.

Where's the little one?

Home with Daddy?

- Yes.

- Enjoying motherhood so far?

- Yes.

- Any bleeding, hemorrhoids,

or itching?

- Um, no.

- Good.


Well, incision's

healing up great.

Everything looks dandy

down there.

All clear for whoopee,

not that most women

are raring to go at six weeks.

Birth control?

- Somehow I don't think we'll be

needing that right away.

- Yeah,

I've heard that one before.

Just had one in here

with a 2-month-old

and pregnant again.

Sound like your idea

of a good time?

So, you know, have fun,

but play it safe.

Any other questions?

- Um...

- Okay, good to see you.

Bye, now.

- I don't... I don't know why

he's fussing.

- You want me to change him?

- I already did that.

I don't know

what his problem is.

- Here.

Bring him to me.

I'll take him.

Come here.

Hey, there, buddy.

- I got my six-week checkup


- Yeah, that's right.

How'd that go?

- Good.

The doctor said we could

get back to business,

if you know what I mean.

- Really?

You up for that?

- I am if you are.

- Well, you know, I just figure

you're so tired with the baby

and everything.

Josh, we haven't had sex

in six months.

- Right, right.

No need to rush.

Hey, what are you...

- Do I disgust you?

- What?

No, of course not.

- Is it because

I have stretch marks now?

Am I just gross to you?

- You are perfect

exactly the way you are.


I'm serious.

- Then why don't you stop

jerking off

and f*ck your wife?


For Christ sake.

You're so sexy.


- Honey!


- F*ck!

What time are you gonna be

home tonight?

- It's hard to say.

They are really killing us

this week.

But, um, I'll do my best.

- Bye.


- You supposed to be smoking,


- None of your fucking business.

- Do you mind if I have one?

One of your...

Thank you.

Do you have a light?

- What, do you want me

to light it for you?

- Would you mind?

Thank you.

I'm Cal, by the way.

- I'm Kelly.

- Nice to meet you.

Your kid is crying, Kelly.

- I know.

The whole fucking neighborhood

can hear him cry.

- So you just gonna let him

cry it out?

Cry it out?

- It's called Ferberizing...

when they cry and...

- Right, right, I think I heard

of Ferberizing.

- I'm sure you have.

- No, I'm not kidding.

- Okay.

Cool smoke rings.

- You have great tits.

- Excuse me?

- Little Junior in there

should be more grateful.

- I don't know who you are,

but you should not...

- Whoa, whoa, whoa, relax.

I was just trying to give you

a compliment, like...

- Get away from my house.

- Well,

draw the freakin' curtains

if you don't want

the whole neighborhood

to watch you breastfeed.

- If you don't leave,

I will call the cops.

- Okay, okay, okay.


Ciao, mamacita.

- F*ck.

- That's some opening line,

you know?

"Nice tits."

- I feel like such an asshole.

- Why?

Kid's a Peeping Tom.

- I know, but he's kind of

the first real person I've met

since we've moved here.

- So he gets a free pass

because he's in a wheelchair?

- No, I just shouldn't have

snapped at him.

- He's a perv.

- Well, at least

someone's looking.

- I'm looking.

It's just hard

to think of your boobs like that

when they're Jackson's

food supply right now.

- Wow, since you put it

like that...

- Know what you should do?

Take the baby on a stroll.

Explore the neighborhood

a little bit.

You know, a little exercise.

Get the endorphins going.

- Sure, I'm exhausted,
