Well'?

Nothing.

So you took off, went away

and left him on his own'?

Yes.

It's normal.

Normal'?

He wouldn't have helped me either.

- But how did you feel aftemrards?

- Normal.

Can you explain

what "normal" means to you'?

Normal means normal.

So, nothing.

I know it's hard

to talk about certain things.

But with time

we'll be able to go deeper.

I think we're done for the day.

See you next week.

Bye, Lorenzo.

See, I was right after all'?

Yes.

To open up,

he needed an outsider,

someone who's neither you or me.

Yes, I told you,

he decided all on his own.

It's such a relief.

I phoned you right away!

Lorenzo for a week on the snow!

If you think how it was

just a year ago...

If he feels he wants to be

with the others for a whole week,

that's a wonderful sign.

It's very important.

I could hardly wait to call you.

No! Wait.

I'll tell him myself later.

Alright.

Before we begin our lesson,

who hasn't given me the money yet'?

Tomorrow is the last day. Any hasn't

paid by tomorrow won't be coming.

I'm not joking.

Sign here.

Take this.

- Cuni, coming for ajoint'?

- Don't bother with him.

Lorenzo, what are you doing'?

I was trying to pick up a bean

with the straw.

Cut it out, eat properly.

I heard from your dad. He said

to buy you a snowboard.

- There are new ones out.

- Nitro'?

I don't know, we'll see,

I don't remember.

It has to be Nitro, or Gnu.

But I don't need one, mine's fine.

No, he's counting on it,

he wants to buy you something...

- Is he happy I'm going?

- Of course, he's very happy.

- What did he say'?

- That he was happy.

- What were his exact words'?

- I don't know, he was happy.

No, tell me,

what were his exact words'?

He was happy.

Mom, do you think

people seeing us here now,

could think we were a couple'?

How could they think a kid would be

with a woman of my age'?

Well, you look a lot younger.

No, they'd think I'm your mother.

We need to cut your hair.

Imagine that tomorrow a fatal virus

comes out of a laboratory

and kills the population.

But you and I find the antidote

and are saved.

And we're the only ones

left on Earth.

But humanity is doomed, unless we...

- Stop it.

- Come on, it would save humanity.

Stop this nonsense, eat up.

Why get mad I... I mean an extreme

situation I... It's to save mankind.

What are you thinking!

- You're worse than a six-year-old!

- Okay, sorry.

Tell me just one thing. If it were

a boy, what would you call him'?

- What did the psychiatrist say about

Lorenzo'? - He has a grandiose self.

- What's that mean'?

- That our son is so narcissistic.

He doesn't need anyone.

That's great news.

- I found them! - Good!

What would I do without you'?

You wouldn't find your shoes.

Where's this chameleon from'?

- What do you mean'?

- Where's it come from'?

- We get them from the dealer,

I don't know. - It's strange.

I think it's African,

Indian ones are bigger.

- Yes, maybe.

- No, I'm sure.

What do you feed it'?

Mealworm larvae.

It's a bit skinny. You should

give it a more varied diet,

- Like crickets or silkworms.

- Will you get me some'?

- Does it ever change color?

- Buy it and find out.

Is this for cats or dogs'?

- It's the same. - It can't be.

- Don't you have anything to do'?

- Are stick insects hard to breed?

- No!

Just a terrarium and some branches,

want some'?

- I'll give you a good price.

- No, thanks, they're not my thing.

And this'? How much is this'?

I was thinking about

that story you told me. I liked it.

- Which one'?

- The one about a pastry maker.

The pasty maker who tamed beetles.
