Rabbit Hole

Synopsis: Becca and Howie Corbett are a happily married couple whose perfect world is forever changed when their young son, Danny, is killed by a car. Becca, an executive-turned-stay-at-home mother, tries to redefine her existence in a surreal landscape of well-meaning family and friends. Painful, poignant, and often funny, Becca's experiences lead her to find solace in a mysterious relationship with a troubled young comic-book artist, Jason - the teenage driver of the car that killed Danny. Becca's fixation with Jason pulls her away from memories of Danny, while Howie immerses himself in the past, seeking refuge in outsiders who offer him something Becca is unable to give. The Corbetts, both adrift, make surprising and dangerous choices as they choose a path that will determine their fate.

Becca?

Becca?

- Hey, Peg.

- It looks so nice back here.

Well, I'm just, you know,

trying to get things back into shape.

Listen, we were wondering

if you and Howie were free tonight.

- We're having a few people over for dinner.

- That's very sweet of you, Peg.

- I know, it's really short notice...

- Actually, we have plans.

But another time, though?

Yeah, I haven't talked to Pete in ages.

You haven't missed much.

He's still the same SOB he always was.

Oh, God. I'm so sorry.

- It's okay.

- I'm so sorry.

- No, no, no. No, it's fine.

- These stupid feet.

Well, have a great dinner, Peg.

- We'll do it again next time.

- Yeah. Absolutely.

- Say hi to Howie for me.

- I sure will.

- Bye.

- Bye-bye.

- Smells good in there.

- Hey, if Peg asks, we went out tonight.

Where did we go?

- Saw the Stoppard play.

- Really? Did we enjoy it?

Very much.

She asked us to dinner again.

- She's just being nice.

- You're more than welcome to go over there.

- And abandon your risotto?

- Careful, Howie. The pan's hot.

- Hey.

- Hey. I'm gonna hop in the shower.

About 20 minutes.

Hello?

What time is it?

What's going on?

Thank you.

- Have you got nothing to say?

- Thank you?

- You were in a bar fight.

- It wasn't a bar fight.

- You were in a bar fighting.

- It wasn't a fight.

Some drunk girl was screaming in my face,

so I hit her and that was the end of it.

- Well, who was she?

- I don't know.

People don't just scream at you

for no reason.

Sure they do! You should get out more.

- God, Izzy, it's so Jerry Springer.

- What does that mean?

What, do you think I'm trashy?

You can't keep doing this.

You're not a kid anymore.

I didn't know there was a cut-off date.

Yeah, for acting like a jackass,

there's a cut-off date.

I want to stop worrying about you.

Hey, don't worry about me.

She was the one on the floor.

Can I stay with you tonight?

I got you! I got you!

Danny, look at me when you turn back.

- He's getting juice.

- No, he's not.

Danny, look at this.

Now, Danny,

I'm gonna tell you a secret, okay?

When you go back down,

I want you to give Mom a big kiss, okay?

Ready? One, two, three. That was high!

- Danny, look at me when you come back.

- He's getting juice.

- You want any cake?

- Yes.

Do we have cake today?

- Yeah, we do.

- Yes.

- We do?

- No, it's brownies. Come on.

Oh, my gosh. You really want some.

Well, if it isn't Ma Barker.

I'm sure that would be very funny

if I knew who that was.

Rick and I are gonna play squash.

I have my cell if you need me.

- Yeah.

- Squash. You go play squash, Howie.

- You don't even know what squash is.

- I don't care what squash is.

Hello?

Yeah. Yeah!

She's gonna kill me.

Yeah, I know.

I think Auggie must have told her.

Hey, I gotta go. Bye.

Thank you, Becca.

I know what this stuff is now.

- I like the way it cracks.

- Of course you do.

So, did you know that woman?

My God, why are you listening

to my phone conversations?

- You're sleeping with the girl's boyfriend.

- It's been over between them!

They're just living together

because of the rent.

- Then why did she accost you?

- Because she's a lunatic.

And Auggie must have told her

that I'm pregnant.

- You are not.

- You're gonna love him.

He's a really...

He's a great guy. He's a musician.

- Well, that's terrific.

- Yeah, he works.

He gets work as a musician.

- How long have you known?

- A few weeks.

Did you tell Mom?

Come on. You told Mom before me?

- I had to.

- Why didn't you tell me?

Why do you think?

I'm sorry, Becca.

I know the timing really sucks.
