How'd it go?

Oh, I think the people who

enjoyed it the most...

were the ones who caught up

on their sleep.

Er, Laura and the kids have

started eating.

Where'd they go?

Er... er, La Petit Vrit.

Oh. Man, Jesus.

You're not in the mood

for French food?

No, it's not that, it's just...

Are you are you okay?

No, I I you know,

it's just...

I mean, I don't get the idea

of drama.

I mean, it doesn't make

people happy, right?

Er, and and you know,

like people

I know there's some people who

who, er, feel stuck in comedy...

and they wanna prove themselves

a serious actor.

I don't.

I mean, I love doing comedy.

I love making people laugh.

I I don't feel like I need

to win an award...

for long day's journey into

boredom, you know?

And yet here I am, doing another


You know, like a guy who

who's, er, you know...

addicted to a drug that doesn't

even get him high, you know?

Like a cigarette smoker

who doesn't even...

like cigarettes, you know?

And yet, here he goes, having

another cigarette...

and another cigarette and

another cigarette...

and another cigarette.

I get the idea, Woody.


Have you ever had that...

where you were addicted to

something you didn't even like?

Yeah, my girlfriend.


Oh, no kidding?

Yeah, she just says the most

awful things like...

I brought her to dinner to meet

my parents, right...

and before we started eating my

mum says, "Let's pray".

She goes, "I'm an atheist".

Like she couldn't just

go along with it.


Wow, brutally honest.

Yeah, definitely brutal.

So we bow our heads, close our

eyes, and she just sat there...

staring at us like we're morons.


Well, how how'd you know that?


[WOODY] I mean, if your eyes

are closed...

how'd you know what

she was doing?

Oh, I peeped.



So anyway, we get through the

prayer, we start eating.

It's dead quiet in the room,

uncomfortable quiet.

And then she goes,

"This chicken's overcooked".

I'd rather her choke on that

chicken, than say that.


My god, that could not have gone

over good with the parentals.

No... well, my dad loves her.

He says she's been overcooking

the chicken for 25 years...

and someone's finally called

her out on it.

My mum asks me every day if I've

managed to get rid of her yet.


Well, I'm sorry about that,

dude, you know...

but I feel I feel lucky,

you know?

It's like, er, Laura is so cool,

you know?

I mean, II think that's true,

that statement...

happy wife, happy life.

Um, yeah.

[WOODY] Huh?


[WOODY] What was that?

What was what?

What you just said.

What'd I just say?

Dude, is everything cool?

Um, yeah.

Okay, now that's twice.

Yeah, I said "yeah" twice.

Is there something you're not

telling me?


Are you sure?

Um, yeah.

Hi, Woody.


Heavy play.

Oh, tell me.

I miss 'Cheers'.

Me, too.

You were so young and innocent

back then.

Yeah, be a give a lot to be

either one of those things now.

You're all right, Woody. Would

you sign that for me, please?


Don't sign for paparazzi, Dave.

Apparently, you do pose

for them, though, mate.

Oh, yeah, lovely, lovely, mate.

Lovely, thank you.

Woody. Woody. Woody.

Oh my god, I knew something

was going on, dude.


When when did you see this?

Just this morning.

And you kept it from me all day?

I didn't know you didn't know.

Dude, of course you knew

I didn't know.

What would it have helped to say

something earlier?

Because knowledge is power,

all right?

For one thing, I never would've
