I think your bookkeeper

paid for the flatware twice.

Albert, stop.

I can't do this any more.

Mollie, I love you and you love me.

Albert, you're great in bed

and you're my biggest account...

...but you're married!

And I'll never fall in love with

anyone else while I'm seeing you.

You know I'm leaving Beth.

It just takes time.

Every time I say the word divorce,

she loses five pounds.

I'm sorry she's bulimic.

- I can't wait for you forever.

- It's going to work out soon.

The doctor prescribed new pills

and she's starting ballet classes.

- It'll be like the playwriting.

- She knows this can't make her fat.

She said

writing made her ass spread.

Which is insane, she's got

a great ass for a 40-year-old.

I'll tell Mr. Ross to give

your account to someone else.

I won't let him. I'll never let

anyone else touch my books.

God, Mollie, I'm going to burst

if you don't kiss me soon.

Follow me. I know where I'm going.

I've got the map. Come on.

Come on, keep up, you kids.

Here we go.

Wait a minute, I see something.

I think this is it,

right over here.

This is definitely it.

This is the place.


Right down here, kids.

Here we go.

Dig in, you kids. Here we go.

It's kind of tough here.

Oh, oh...

I'm in!

Are you okay?

- I broke up with George.

- Who?

George. I met him in Joe Allen's.

He turned out to be stupid.

You look lousy, doll.

- Stomach flu. It's going around.

- Nobody has the stomach flu.

They don't?

You want to hear about Albert?

- Listen to me.

- I am.

Albert's shrink said his wife would

never recover if he kept seeing me.

- He's decided to leave her.

- Albert's leaving his wife?

No, he's leaving his shrink. She was

really an obstacle between us.

Leaving his shrink?

He's supposed to leave his wife.

He's going to. He can't leave her

while she's sick. She's bulimic.

Don't give me that look.

It's a very serious disease.

What in the... Wait a minute.

I've got two of these things.

Look at that, they match.

- You ate all that already?

- How weird, I don't like ice cream.

- There he is.

- This is sick.

He looks so sweet with the kids.

If only Beth would stop throwing up.

Miss Popularity, you can't expect to

find a husband if you never go out.

- You're in every night of the week.

- Ma, it's tax season.

I was studying to pass a CPA exam, -

- and I still managed

to catch your father.

What if Daddy was married

when you first met him?

- I wouldn't have fallen for him.

- You can't control that.

Why not?

Listen, take your father here...

His favourite food was cheesecake,

and what did the doctor tell him?

- "Cut back on cholesterol."

- Now he doesn't eat cheesecake.

Ma, that doesn't make any sense.

You never used to like my food.

Something's wrong.

- Nothing's wrong.

- Louie, something's wrong.

- I didn't eat breakfast.

- Something's wrong.


Oh, no!

- Yes!

- Oh, no!

- This wasn't a planned pregnancy?

- This wasn't even a planned affair.


let's see how far along we are.

Time out! Holy cow,

what was that? Who's that?

How could this have happened?

- How old are you now, Mollie?

- 33.


your biological clock is ticking.

Beth finally agreed to a divorce.

Mollie, I'm so glad you waited.

I knew if I was patient,

this day would come.

Remember your biological clock.

My biological clock is ticking...

I know, I've already said that.

I didn't plan on this.

I'm not asking for anything.

I don't want to trap you.

But this baby... it's you and

me, and I'm not getting an abortion.

I wasn't going to ask you to.

This will be an incredible baby.
