What was the question?



I mean, what's happy?

Really, I mean, it's.. arbitrary.

I... I'm... I'm..

Look, we had a fight

so I'm not, like,


...I'm happy."

But I'm happy.

I like Rebecca.

She feels like family.

Sometimes I feel like

she validates

how I feel

about the world.

I think she's smart

and that makes me

feel smart.


...sometimes it feels..

[sighs]'s all too clean.

You know?

But I'm happy.


Are you?


Sometimes I'm happy.

Can't always be happy.

That's true.

What makes you happy?

I just love my kids,

you know.

I do.

Seeing you,

I wanna see you.. know, I wanna see

you happy and fulfilled.

Just love my boys.

What can I say?

And your dad's

pretty good in bed too.


[instrumental music]

[indistinct chatter]

I need you to teach me this.

Nah. I've got a blanket

for you.

I could do that part.

There we go.

[indistinct chatter]

Alright, thank you.

Guys, this is Paul,

he's an old friend.

This is Alex, and Graham.

- Really old.

- I'm sorry.

- This is John.

- Hey, welcome, my friend.

[music continues]

No, check that out.


You hiding out?

I thought I had an hour.

You had it.

[indistinct chatter]


- Nice to meet you.

- Hi.

Hi. Emilie.

[Emilie laughing]

Thank you so much.

[indistinct chatter]

- You mad at me?

- No.

Are you mad at me?

- I just wanna finish this.

- Okay.

Are you mad at me?

Oh, my God,

you're intolerable.

[music continues]

I love you, old man.

Uh, I love you more than

all the other old men.

[indistinct chatter]

Can I ask you something?

Does he, um, does he do soliloquies

when he's going down on you?

What are you asking?

She's f***ing


the Duke of Athens

over here.

- I did not say that! He's a freshman.

- And?

- I don't tolerate freshmen.

- Since when?

- You want wine?

- Glenn, Glenn, when do you start?

- Sorry?

- When do you actually start?

Immediately. I'll be

up there on Monday.

- Wow.

- Wow.

- Will you commute?

- If my wife has her way.

Glenn's afraid

that his marriage is over.

- I'm not laughing.

- Uh, I'm taking this.

- See, this is his thing.

- Yes!

What's my thing?

Before you do something selfish,

you, like, broadcast it.

You think

it makes it okay.

We're in love, so we're

allowed to say mean things

to each other, I guess.

You're showing me tits.

There're these pictures

I made.

- You've got tits?

- Look.

It's fine.

- You know, it's getting dark.

- Okay.

Should probably

get 'em home.

When are you going

to grow up?

Did you have any?

Have it, it's good.


Quit now, James.

So now he's affectionate.


She'd run

the other designer off.

- That's not true.

- Yes, it is.

Glenn, it's not true.

She took another job.

She went to,

I don't know where.

UT, I think.

She resigned.

Yeah, she resigned. Her

assistant was f***ing her boss

What else

is she gonna do?

- No, it's not.

- So, what, it's true?

- Oh, my God. Chris.

- It's true.

No, no, it's not.

I went out with him once.

One time.

I was an idiot.

I thought that, you know

he was being professional.

When she came along, I couldn't

sign the papers fast enough.

- Oh, how romantic.

- You..

You would've been

on marriage, what?

Your marriage number two?

Wait, wasn't that

your, uh, open marriage?

Yeah, she was a swinger!

- No, I wasn't!

- That's what she said. Is that not what she said?

Being in an open marriage is not

the same thing as being a swinger.
