Sweets for my sweetie?

Mmm, don't mind

if I do.

Bubbly for my bubbly?

Uh, yeah. I don't think...

That's not a thing.

You want

more champagne or not?

Of course, I do, baby.

Here's to having you to myself

for the entire weekend.

I'm all yours, Will.

Every inch of me.

Come Monday, you won't be

able to walk straight.

I like the sound of that.

Yeah, I mean...

- What was that?

- I have a conscience.

- It was nothing, baby.

- Come on.


You just left the TV on.

I wasn't watching TV.

Oh. No. No, come on, don't go.

What if it's your husband?

No way.

He's in Tokyo till Thursday.

Will, it's nothing.


If it is him...

- Yeah?

- We could always say it was dark.

And we thought

it was an intruder.

An honest mistake,

self-defense, you know?


Come on.

Our sex tape can't be blur.

No, we don't wanna

leave this blurry.

- Come on...

- I need to see you.

I need to see everything.

See. Told you.

Well, I didn't turn it on.

Yeah, right.


- You're pinning me down!

- Oh!


Naughty little schoolgirl.

I need this too much.

Okay, what the hell

is going on?

Somebody's f***ing with us.


It's just some a**hole kids.

I don't know.

You know, my friends and I used to

always pull this crap on Mischief Night.

- Didn't you?

- What the hell is Mischief Night?

There they are.

Cue the bag of flaming poo.

Very funny, ass...

What's going on?

I don't know. But I'm not

taking any chances.

I'm calling the cops.

- Sh*t.

- What?

No dial tone.

There's someone there.

- Where's your cell phone?

- In my purse.

Find it.

- Find it?

- No.

I swear, it was right there!

- Where's yours?

- Jeans.

- Not here.

- Let me look.

Who the hell is it?

Whoever it is, they may

still be in the house.

You go hide in the closet

while I check it out.

If somebody's messing with us,

they'll be sorry.


Be careful.

All right. Go.

Batter's up, a**holes.


All right! Who wants

to get their asses kicked?



Oh, no. Come on! Come on!

No! No! Come on! Come on!

Oh, my God.


Oh, my God!

Oh, my God.

No! No!

Come on! Come on!

Oh, f***!

Let me out of here!

So, how is school?

Fine. A little boring.

Staying out of

trouble then?

No, no.

Uh, let's see.

I've been suspended twice

in the last week,

I'm failing everything,

getting kicked out of all the clubs.

There's this one kid's mom that's

threatening to press charges against me.

Good, good! Glad to hear it.

I... I'm glad to see that everything is on track then, huh?

But seriously, it is.

I mean, I'm...

I'm doing really well, Dr. Pomock.

Like, it might be time for me

to lose the Lexapro.


Look, I... I know

what you're going to say.

You're gonna tell me that the

medication makes me feel better,

and that's why I don't think

I need it anymore,

even though I still do.

But in that case...

When do you get

to stop taking the medication?


How about

when your eyesight returns?

Well, that's a cheap shot.

I'm sorry,

I didn't mean for it to be.

Emily, why is it

that you can't see?

Because something happened

in the accident.

Some weird, like, nerve trauma,

some brain trauma, or...

Or emotional trauma?

Causing conversion disorder,

of which your asthma and your

blindness are active symptoms.

Yeah, but maybe

that's not the case.

And maybe the neurologists and the

ophthalmologists and the radiologists are...

All missed something. Yes.

I mean, I'm happy.

I'm well-adjusted, I'm smart,

I have a boyfriend,

my dad and I are super close.

It's been nine years. I...

Shouldn't I be cured by now?
