Ah, there.

Puccini should do the trick.

Let it carry you away.

There, now.


Thank you.

Oh, no. No, I haven't always

practiced here.

My story?

I believe there's a story

to be told on every corner.

I had a beautiful wife.

I had a beautiful home.

We had a perfect life together.


But underneath that clean,

white surface,

there was the stench

of decay.



The IRS?

Yes. Yes, it's me.

Yeah, look, Mr. Goldblum...

No. No, sir, I'm not trying to

avoid you, but I told you before,

all my returns are handled

by my business manager.

It's, uh... i-it's just a mistake.

But it's their mistake.

You can't do this to me.


Yes, we can meet.

My office.

No. No, no.

Not this afternoon.

I'm sorry, but that is impossible.

Fine, fine.

Whatever you say.

Yes, a checkup.

Yes, I could.

See you then.

- What is it, honey?

- Look at this.

- What?

- There. You can't see that?

The stain?

How could you let them

send it back looking like that?

- I can't wear that.

- I'm sorry, I must have missed it.

- Now I have to wear this!

- Well, what's wrong with it?

My diamond cufflinks.

When I wear white shirts,

I wear my diamond cufflinks,

but I can't wear my diamond cufflinks,

because their still at the jeweler's

having the stones reset, unless,

of course, you picked them up for me.

I didn't have a chance.

I've been working on

a fundraiser all week long--

Things are going to hell around here!

This has got to stop, Brooke!

I wanted to wait

until tonight, but, uh...

Happy anniversary.


You are amazing.

- What would I do without you?

- I don't know.

They must have cost a fortune.

I just... I'm con--

Where are we going tonight?

That is my surprise.

You just be ready at seven.

Well, I need to know

what to wear.

- Your black dress.

- Oh, that little black dress?

The little black dress.

Happy anniversary.

- Honey, you know what?

- You're not wearing anything.

Well, I was going to take

a shower after you left.

You were dressed like that

in front of the pool man?

I'm wearing a robe.

Yeah, but... Brooke,

you gotta be careful.

- You know what I mean.

- Alan, don't ruin it.

- You've been smoking.

- I have not.

You're lying to me.

I can smell it on your breath.

Now, I have to

brush my teeth again.

- Just be ready by seven.

- Fine.

Nothing, no matter

how good or how pure...

... is free of decay.

Once the decay gets started,

it can only lead to rot, filth, corruption.


Hey, w-w-what is all that brown crap?

- Make sure you clean that up, right?

- Hey, your filter's shot, man.

You need a new one.

I'll take care of it next week.

No. No, no. Not next week.

I want it done tomorrow.

- Do you hear me?

- Oh, man. I'm busy tomorrow.

If you want to keep your job,

you'll have it done tomorrow.

Hey, like I said...

Tomorrow, man.

The filth was everywhere.

The infection was spreading.

How deep did it go?

Right to the nerve?

Oh, yeah.


Oh, that's good.

Get your filthy hands off her!

I am very disappointed in you!

- Please, Mr. Feinstone.

- Doctor! Dr. Feinstone!

I am a dentist!

And this is my wife,

you filthy piece of sh*t!

- Please, please.

- Do you know what that means?

It means that she has got

a perfect bite!

Come on, hon!

Show him how good your teeth are!

Show him how good your teeth are!

Show him your teeth!

You lying b*tch!

You cocksucking whore!

- Show him! Show him!

- No! No!

- Show him!

- No!

Is the dentist here or what?

If you could just have a seat.

Dr. Feinstone will see you

all just as soon as he can.
