[door opens and closes]

[keys jingling] - [Woman] Just get me

the hell out of here! [engine starts] [peaceful guitar music] [peaceful violin music] [moaning] - [exclaims] No, God. [sighs deeply] - Chow down, yeah. That's what I like to see. [man savors] [dog barks] Look at you hungry dogs. - [Man in Blue] Don't

write "Dad", you moron. [sighs deeply] [phone ringing] - [Joel] Hey, Dave.

- [Dave] Hey, Joely. Who do I have this morning? - The Bennetts. - [exclaims] Damn! That's right, my

favorite couple. - Hey Dave, where's my patient

intake form on the Bennetts? - You gave it to me. - [exclaims] I gave it to you? - [Dave] Yes. - Well, did you make a copy? - No. But I have your notes! - Would you please make

a copy and fax it to me? - I'll email the files to you. - Dave! - I'll email 'em to your phone. - Email it to my phone? Well, suggest an Intimacy Night. - An Intimacy Night? I got other things I'm

gonna do with them. - Like what? - Don't worry about it, Joely! [upbeat banjo music] I suggest an Intimacy Night. - That's what I said. - No, you called

it a Date Night. - What's the difference? What's the difference? - Well, there is no difference. - Told you! - I mean, an Intimacy Night

doesn't need to be a date. - Right. Right! - I want to warm

up into intimacy. I'm not gonna wait for

you to get home from work, cook you a meal and then

bam, have some intimacy! - [Ben] Margie,

we're not teenagers, I don't want to take

you to the movies. - [Margie] See,

this is what I mean! - [Ben] What, what this? This? [growls in anger] - [Woman] Well, I'm

off to the doctor then. - All right. - I love you. - Love you too. - I just want to be happy. - Well, I'm sorry,

but I don't want to make popcorn with you and

rent a DVD and then make out. - That's just mean. - No, it's not mean,

it's realistic. It's acknowledging the fact

that we're not 15 anymore-- - You're deflecting again! - We've got respo-- [Ben] Deflecting?

- [Margie] Uh huh! - [Ben] Doctor, will you

just please talk to her-- - Some times people

just need a break. I mean, perfectly understandable that you're both upset. It's an uncomfortable

situation for both of you. But we can work this through. It's good to be open

with your feelings. - Hey, do you think that Dave

is good for Ben and Margie? - That's up to Ben and Margie. - [sighs deeply] Okay. [upbeat banjo music] - [Doctor] Of course

you can still have sex. In fact, it's very healthy

for a woman your age. - Well, you know, it's

just like been a while. - Well, have you

tried speed walking? - What? - It'll help raise your libido. - [Woman] Okay. - [Doctor] I'm gonna prescribe

you some vaginal cream. Now, use this two times

a day, two to four weeks. With your age, there's

gonna be some dryness. Smile [breathing heavily] When all is more and

more is [muffled lyric] Darling I seem to be misled To me the worst of

it [muffled lyric] When is more and

more is [muffled lyric] [humming] [phone vibrating] - [Woman] Do you still love me? - Of course. - [Woman] Tell me. - [Joel] What do you mean? - I don't know, tell me

what you love about me. - I love your laugh. - Yeah? - [Joel] It's very nice. - [Woman] Do you want to

know what I love about you? - Sure. - I think you're very

sweet and it's very sexy. Really, very sexy. - [Joel] Thank you,

thank you very much. [phone ringing] [Joel] Hey, Dave.

- [Dave] Hey, Joely. What ya' doing? - [Joel] Just going

over some patient files. - Packed for the conference? - It's in two days, Dave. - Yeah, I packed all my

things, came out to the cabin. - [Joel] What does Riana

have to say about that? - [Dave] Come down
