[HEAVY BREATHING]

[GRUNTS]

- Time!

- [STOPWATCH BEEPS]

Holy shit.

- What is it?

- Guess.

5:
19?

5:
07.

That's enough for Ridgewood?

Yeah. That's almost enough

for the Olympics.

Let's get you some dinner.

- 5:
07

- Yeah, man.

[DOOR OPENS]

Woo.

Hey, how was it?

We are in the presence

of a future Olympian.

Just guess my time.

Okay. Five...

- 5:
07.

- What?

- 5:
07.

- 5:
07? That's incredible.

- Right?

- That's my best.

We made that.

Did you know we made you?

- Okay.

- We made you with our bodies.

- I know.

- Okay.

Go take a shower.

I'm making breakfast for dinner.

[SNIFFS]

[GRUNTS]

Oh, f*ck. [EXHALES]

- It won't change until you talk to Jim.

- I gotta catch him on a good day.

- He's in a bad mood.

- Yeah, he's always in a bad mood, Brian.

- You just have to sit him down.

- Okay, I hear you, all right?

Brian, I'm looking for work too, but...

[CLEARS THROAT]

- There he is.

- Hey.

- I'm gonna go get some eggs. Wanna come?

- Sure.

Hey, get milk, too, okay?

["RIP VAN WINKLE" PLAYING]

You're sleeping all your moments away

I'm counting every breath

That you take

You've been snoozing 20 years

And lengthening...

- God.

- Right?

- Yeah. It's f*cking great.

- Yeah, I'm obsessed.

[LAUGHS]

All right. I'm going in.

You staying? Or are you going?

- I'm staying.

- Okay.

...have given up for good

You say, "Hey"

Hey. Can you bring me something?

I'll think about it.

I said, "Hey"

"I'm all right"

Every time I turn around

[DOOR CHIMES]

- Hey, Tommy.

- Hey, man.

[HUMMING]

You can spot a hawk a mile away

Cursing all those old blue jays

But every time I turn around

And have given up for good

[TIRES SQUEAL]

No!

[INDISTINCT CHATTER]

I guess the driver had a heart attack.

- It's awful.

- Yes.

[KNOCKING ON DOOR]

[NAOMI] Logan?

Yeah?

The Kellmans are leaving.

Okay.

Are you guys gonna stay here?

I can't afford the rent.

With me being out of work and now...

You should stay at our mountain house.

- No.

- No, I'm serious, Naomi.

I mean, it's just sitting there, and...

You know that Bruce won't have

a problem with it.

I want to help.

I thought you guys were selling...

We are, but...

You just have to leave for a bit

on Sundays during open houses.

- It's nothing.

- I don't know, Ally.

- Having people living there is not...

- It'll be fine.

Okay? You can look after the place.

Logan would kill me if I pulled him

out of school right now.

Okay, look, it's just until

you get back on your feet.

And you'll come back.

I just can't believe it.

He's dead.

Okay.

[SIGHS]

Ready?

[SIGHS]

Yep.

[ENGINE TURNS OVER]

No, you're not listening

to what I'm saying.

I am the executor.

Well, yes. He was my husband.

What?

Hello?

Hello?

Can you hear me?

Hello?

[PHONE THUDS]

Damn it.

[SIGHS]

[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC PLAYS OVER RADIO]

[TURNS OFF RADIO]

How long did you say

we were gonna be here for?

- I don't know, Logan.

- You said I'd be back before graduation.

I said I don't know,

and I'm gonna do my best, okay?

[NAOMI SIGHS]

Can you pass me my phone?

It's at your feet.

[GRUNTS]

Hey, Mom! Shit!

[TIRES SQUEAL]

Oh, sh...! Oh, my God!Oh, my God!

Please tell me he's okay.

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

He's... he's not there.

What?

Hey, let's just... let's just go.

What?

I could have killed him.

[PANTING]

Mom, your nose.

Oh, shit.

Hey, uh...

Here.

Here.

It's just the altitude.

Oh, shit.

- Sorry.

- [LAUGHING] Oh, no worry at all, honey.

Wait a minute.

You must be Logan.

Hi?

Oh, and hold on...

Naomi.

- I'm sorry?

- Oh, forgive me. I'm Martha.

Bruce and Allison's neighbor.
