- What?

- How can you wear that suit?

Will you jump in the ocean

with me after dinner?

No. You go right ahead. The guy at the

desk said there could be riptides.

Come on. I'll protect you.

Are you high?

- A wee bit.

- Garrett, seriously?

You brought pot to Mexico across

the border? You're insane.

I've got something for you.


30 years.


- Viva Mexico!

- S. Viva Mexico.

Still here for us after

all these years.


- Oh, honey. Sit down.

- Vamanos, mujer.

Let's dance.

Come on.

The band's playing, there's guacamole

in the air, tequila on my tongue.

Come on.




Can you believe we're finally here?

It's beautiful.

You built a beautiful house.

I built it for you.

Thanks so much for

listening. This is KCRW

it's gonna be a hot one

in downtown Los Angeles.

Might be a good day to slip out

to the beach and cool off.

That's what I want to do.

For the weekend, the National Weather

Service is issuing a high...

- Morning.

- Morning.

Mom, why is Roger always

swimming in your pool?

Because he's a

neighbor and a friend,

and why shouldn't he?

Maybe he should pay the pool boy.

He's the only one that uses it.

Well, somebody should enjoy it.

I heard you on the phone all night.

Was that Josh?



I'm going home today.


Back to Seattle?

What about our weekend?

Oh, honey.

You're obsessed.

I don't want you to

lose yourself in this.

Honey, you put so much

into these relationships.

I just don't want to see

you get hurt is all.

Well, do you think

that's avoidable?

No, no, it isn't.


Do you ever go there

anymore... the museum?


No, not since your father.

You used to practically live there.


Well, I don't like to look back.

To the south,

and there's a new exhibition

opening this week

at the Los Angeles

County Museum of Art,

going back in time over

the last two millennia

and exploring the roots of

sculptural representation...



Uh, no, he's not.

I'm... let me interrupt you.

Excuse me.

He... he's dead.

He died five years ago.

That... that's all right.

Yes, you can take

him off your list.


Oh, God, there's nothing like

the smell of fresh bread,

is there?

I'm so glad I hired you.

Nikki, you have really put

some life into this place.

Thanks. It's what I do.

It's been on the market 18 months.

I had to drop the

price three times.

Well, you know what?

I'm not surprised.

It was like a mausoleum

when I got in here.

I kept expecting to see

Norma Desmond grieving

over her dead chimp.

Looks good.



Uh, that goes up in

the master, please.

Yes, ma'am.

Oh, good.

It's four bedrooms.

There's a really huge...

Elementary schools.

Talk to them. And, um...

And you've seen the list of...


In Pursuit of the Past?


Special exhibition or

regular collection?

Uh, just regular

collection, please.

Are you a member?

Uh, no, not anymore.


I love going here with you.

Here we are.

Went to the cemetery today.

- Oh.

- Have you been lately?

I mean, wait till you see it. You know

that... that lawn... that big open field

that used to be there? You

know they've swallowed it up.

It's just all headstones and benches

and mausoleums... the whole shebang.

I mean, they have more dead than

they know what to do with them.

No, I don't go too often anymore.

I get it.

You grieved enough.

- Well...

- I was always in awe of you.

You did it the right way.

I don't think so.

Mm. I made an ass of myself.

- You did not.

- I always did the wrong things.

There's no wrong way.
