Are there any side effects?

No, don't worry.

They will just kill you.

How many do I?

- All of them. Just to be sure.

If you're lucky,

it should all be over tomorrow.

If I'm lucky.

THE SECRET TO STAYING HAPPY

IS TO FEED OUR LOVE EACH DAY

SOMETIMES YOUR WORST SIDE

IS GOOD ENOUGH:

MOURNING MARCH:

I'm telling you. 62.

- We've got a taxi, go, go.

- Go, go, go. 60.

Dude, how do you do that? Really.

I want a different car.

TEMPESTUOUS:

MOVING:

Look at what they try

to cram down your throat these days.

Too revealing, right?

Remember the Maldives?

That old geezer beach?

How often didn't we do it there?

Five times.

Five times in one day, I think.

- Those days are over.

Hey, Mis, remember?

What do you think?

Nice.

OK. I'll take it off.

News, but not THE news.

He hid himself from the outside world.

Neighbors said

he wasn't leaving his house anymore.

His motives are a matter of speculation.

There you are.

Sorry.

Are we really not going to say anything

to each other?

It's warm here.

- Jesus.

Sorry.

Sultry Summer Sales are on again.

On the fourth floor friendly prices...

I want Mahler's 5th.

- I know.

But I don't.

That's our music.

- That's why...

Then I won't be able to listen to it

ever again, will I?

Fine.

Just play some James Last then.

I'll finally be able

to put on some make-up again.

Why don't you let me do it?

Honey...

Come on.

Careful.

Is it working? Already?

Yes, it's working.

And?

And?

- Well...

How was your week?

- Fine.

Yoram and Tara came by.

They send their love.

Oh, and I went to Aix-la-Chapelle

for two days.

Aix-la-Chapelle?

- Crazy, isn't it?

I've always wanted to go there.

- Why not today?

I hopped on the train

and stayed at a Bed & Breakfast.

And?

- Dullsville.

Incredibly boring city.

But now I know, at least.

Why Aix-la-Chapelle of all places?

- Crazy, isn't it?

I had to think hard why I wanted

to go there in the first place.

It has to go on the bottom shelf.

The bottom shelf.

Sorry, you're right.

- So do it then.

Plan a weekend away with hubby.

Make time for each other.

What do you want?

- What did you say?

Exactly. A break.

Nice and quiet.

This weekend?

We'll be able to make it.

Yes, I forgot.

Two beers, please.

- I'll have a cola.

A beer and a cola.

- Got it.

Oh, he'd love it.

Yes, of course.

What are you looking for?

Eye... coloring thing.

- Oh, your mascara.

Here you go.

You know what it is?

Quit the game while you're ahead.

If you don't work the ball properly

and you're in your team's way, get out.

True or not? Right?

Otherwise you just sit at the sideline.

Real men aren't interested in balls.

- But she is.

Throw it in, man.

- I want a headshot.

What happened to your cast?

- Allowed to come off sooner.

Takes some getting used to, or not?

- It's OK.

Want something to drink?

- Yes, nice.

Go get it yourself.

Hot stuff.

Full of herself.

- Just hormones.

Give me your cell phone for a minute.

The one I gave you.

When you need me, call me.

Press A. Not short.

Keep pressing it.

MOM:

You never called me that.

Did you get it?

The A is a speed dial.

If something is up and you want

to talk to me press that speed dial.

Do you get it?

- Yes, I'm not stupid.

When I want to talk you,

I press the speed dial.

Are you ready?

Hey, son.

What have you got there?

It's nice.

Come on in.

Mom's waiting for you.

Yes, it works.

Look who's here.

Hello, sweetheart.

You look great.

MAKE A CHOICE:

Sultry Summer Sales are on again.

Now on the fourth floor.

Super special offers on all swimwear.

Jet, let me at least take you home.
