I really think that what you two

are doing... I just think it's fantastic.

You both, you know, been

through this before,

So you know the crap that

you have to deal with when you see

The same person

every single day.

No, it's absolutely the

perfect setup for us,

Because, you know,

we're both very busy...


I work days, she works nights...

so essentially, we only get to see

each other on the weekends...

and I get to watch my nick games

without any interruptions...

yeah, I get up at noon,

I have my coffee in peace,

I don't talk to anyone...

we all know how much

I love the mornings.

So, the real upside to

this you never actually...

have to see each other.

That's exactly right.

Therefore never get on

one anothers' nerves.


I will say, absence really does

make the heart grow fonder.

And makes for much hotter sex,

I might add.

No, David, the details!

It's true.

You don't what to hear

about last night, Marsha?

- Tell us.

- It's pretty nice...

How's your forehead?

... like, baby?

Oh. It's a little tender,

a little bruised.

Your sort of like

"legally bound f*ck buddies", is that it?

No, no! Listen we...

we just are both on

our second marriages,

And we're trying to be like,

a little more realistic

This time around,

what we need...

or what we don't need.

Like I am fully aware

That I have since received my last

blowjob and Im okay with it.

Stop. That's enough already!

Please, this is supposed

to have a nice lunch!

You know what Laverne

says though.

- What?

- The best laid plans of mice and men,

Often go astray.

I have no idea what

that means.

Can you translate, please?

No... I think he might be

saying that eventually you will

Want a blowjob

and your needs downplayed.

We're the first to admit

that we're hardly like...

a perfect match.

But we see one another infrequently

enough that I think, um

We can go the distance here,

huh Bev?

He's kidding, he's kidding.

- Oh my god.

- Of course. We are very much in love!

We're just... we're being a

little more sensible, somehow.

Oh, that... you know their

whole relationship upsets me.

I mean that my sister and I

We were brought up in a very strict,

catholic household.

And... we were taught

to believe that...

Marriage is... is... sacred!

And to be respectful of that.

And... I don't know...

talking about oral sex

over brunch...

is not being respectful.

I heard that if you

do not wake up at least

One morning a week, and look

at your partner and think:

"I have made a terrible mistake".

Then there's actually

something wrong.

With your marriage.

Yeah well, Marsha feels

that way every morning.

So what is that

is normal for you?

Okay, listen... look,

this whole conversation is very,

Very upsetting to me.

No... it is.

Marriage is something

that's very special.

Oh Marsha. It is.

It's a sacrament, it is!

You should get

married because...

you want to share

your life together!

You know, not because

she gives good head.

I think you missed

the point I was making.

Um... she doesn't give good head.

In fact she doesn't give head at all!


The problem with

your argument is that

We didn't actually

get married because...

it was so special...

and it was a sacrament...

and we were so in love.

That's why I got married!

I mean after 18 years together

And you didn't ever feel some

other motivating factor?

- You've been married 18 years?

- Wow. Sounds awesome!

I know. I'm just saying... that...


- When I proposed were in love.

Great. But... - Yeah?


when I was picturing my life...
