[rewinding beat]

[crashing wave melody]

[bell tolling]

[tolling continues]

What was the question?

[laughing]

Um..

I mean, what's happy?

Really, I mean, it's..

...so arbitrary.

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

Look, we had a fight

so I'm not, like,

"Oh..

...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.

But..

...sometimes it feels..

[sighs]

...it's all too clean.

You know?

But I'm happy.

[sighs]

Are you?

[chuckles]

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..

...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.

[chuckles]

[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.

Hey.

You hiding out?

I thought I had an hour.

You had it.

[indistinct chatter]

John.

- 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 fucking

what's-his-face

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.

[laughing]

Quit now, James.

So now he's affectionate.

[exhales]

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 fucking 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.
