was learning ltalian?

For the honeymoon --

she and the fianc.

The guys on set-up

heard they were planning a trip

to Rome before.


Uh, how are

the cheese coming?

I think maybe about --

about five more plates.

And maybe some of the mushroom,

the big sellers.

There should be some more out

in just a sec.


Joe, come here.

I want you to meet

the Meyersons.

our old neighbors.

Barbara, Don,

this is Joe Nast.

He's been here -- what? --

about three weeks now.

Joe's Diana's fianc.

Excuse me just a second.

There should be some more out

We're so sorry.

Thank you.

Beautiful girl.

I'm sure the two of you looked

just gorgeous together.

So, how are you enjoying

our town?

I beg your pardon?

So, now what?

The arraignment, huh?

String the asshole up

by his toes

and wait for a trial date,


T-The other one's a vegetable,


The wife.

Would --

Would you e-excuse me?

Even doggy

looks sad today.

Oh, my God.

You must be exhausted.

all of you.

Propping each other up,

running on adrenaline.

Probably haven't slept

in days.

I'm Stan Michaels,

friend of Ben and JoJo's

from school.

I'm a shrink.

Do you know what your plans are

until the trial?


Selfishly, I'm just asking

for my friends --

only child gone,

work at a standstill.

You know, JoJo hasn't touched

her typewriter since.

lt's only been three days.

Of course.

What I'm trying to say is,

I know this town

isn't home to you,

but I hope, for their sake,

you'll consider staying on.

You're all of Diana

they're gonna have left.

Joe, come talk to me.

Have you noticed there's usually

too much cheese at these things?

So, like, his mother

had canc--

Thanks again.


you were just fabulous.


Jo, are you cold?

Oh, not now.

Jo, what are you --

Honey, those are gifts.

Not gifts -- party favors.

Gifts from our friends.

They're supposed to be helpful.

"Grieving for Grownups"?



I'll show you helpful.


Oh, good.

We're all here now.

Let's dish, shall we?


Joe, you go first.

The Meyersons.

Oh, my God.

Didn't you just want

to smack 'em?

Why can't people think

before they spew?

And that matching, uh --

matching couple. The, uh --

The Hillers.

Oh, my God, those big dripping

looks of sympathy.

"She was such an angel."

How would they know?

They met her once

for two seconds,

and she was being

a total brat that day.
