- Jo, are you ready?

- Maybe, no. Um...

Yes, I'm all set.

Why don't you get something to eat?

Jo, we're already late.

Did you grab a bottle of wine?

If we get hit, you could lose an eye.

Not today.

How was your day?

My day was fine.

Thank you.

- Michael, where's the wine?

- Sorry?

- The wine?

- Sh*t! Hey!

No, wait, wait, wait.


- You look nice, baby.

- Thanks.

Come on.

I love you.

- Oh, you never bring Sarah.

- You didn't tell her?

See you in an hour.

- Should be finished by then.

- Oh, well, thank you for that.

Barbara, hello. Thanks for having us.

- Come see me upstairs, all right?

- Will do.

- How long were you two together?

- Three months.

- Three months? Is it three months already?

- Mmm-hmm.


About Munro, I think we should schedule

another reading for Monday.

Okay. Let's just see how tomorrow goes.

I bet you didn't even like Sarah, either,

did you?

- No, I did! I said I did. - Hey! Yeah,

but I don't think that you meant it.

- Thanks.

- You're welcome.

Why is it so hard for me, Jo?

It isn't. I mean, it can't be.

You haven't got to the hard bit yet.

- What, it gets harder than this?

- Joanna!

- Hello, hi.

- Hey, what's up?

- So good to see you.

- Oh, thank you for having us.

- Andy.

- Stuart.

Michael's telling me

you're working on a new book.

- Michael always says that.

- Oh.

- Well...

- Yeah.

He's probably right.

- I just don't know it?

- Yeah.

Well, I got to go talk to somebody.

Eat. I'll be here.

He hates me. He's gonna fire me.

I know it.

- You say that every week.

- Yeah, well, it's true.

But it hasn't been in the last two years.

Yeah, well, maybe he's just waiting

for the right time.

Hey, do you want me to walk Lucy

while you guys are away?

Oh, yeah. Yeah, that'd be great.

Where is Michael, anyway?

Oh, there he is.

There he is, let's go. Joanna?

Oh, yes. No, I'm gonna go

to the ladies' room. I'll catch up.


I'm starving.

Hey, where've you guys been?

I got totally ambushed by Stuart.

The guy hasn't talked to me in two weeks,

he sees me with your wife and just lit up.

- Hey.

- Hello.

- Hey.

- Hi.

Laura, this is my Joanna.

- Hello. Nice to meet you.

- Hi.

Joanna, this is Laura, she's the

new designer we've been working with.

- Oh!

- Nice to finally meet you.

So Michael tells me you're a writer.

- Yeah, I am.

- I've been meaning to order your book.

Oh, that's nice.

Oh, look, look. Oh, my God, Neal,

he's trying with Cynthia again.

- She's not gonna go for him.

- I know, he just won't learn.

Why not? He's a good-looking guy.

- Oh!

- Then why'd you turn him down?

Oh, speak of the devil.

- Hey, guys.

- Hey, Neal.

No luck with Cynthia?

- Oh, Joanna, hey. It's been forever.

- Hello!

- No luck?

- What?

You didn't really go to the yoga with her,

did you?

She told you that?

- She told me about that.

- Still trying with Cynthia, huh?

What, getting jealous?

- So, what's Laura's story?

- Stuart recruited her.

She seems to be good.

She's working the Munro project with us.

Of course she is.

- Do you mind getting me some more wine?

- Mmm-hmm.

How mysterious...

More of a necessary...

That's not funny.

- There you go.

- Hi.

- Hey. You want a drink?

- Yeah. White wine, please.


Can I get another one?

Is she going to Philly

with you guys tomorrow?


And she was in LA with Michael last month?


Have you been smoking?

Are you really gonna attempt

to give me grief about that?

What's wrong?


Have I done something wrong?

She's pretty.


You never mentioned that.

- Laura?
