(PEOPLE CHATTERING)

MICHAEL:
People are

throwing colored powder

and buckets of

water at each other

and I keep getting hit in

the face with this stuff.

So, I mean, at this point,

I must look like some kind of crazy clown.

(CHUCKLING) And all the while,

we're trying to carry on

this incredibly

serious discussion

about antique furniture.

And he's telling

me about this piece

that he's found that

he thinks I might like.

And then,

out of nowhere, he says...

I'm pregnant.

Seriously?

(BOTH LAUGHS)

- (PEOPLE CHATTERING)

- (SEAGULLS CRYING)

It is beautiful.

It's crazy.

Oh, baby, I don't

want to go back.

What if we stayed here?

Started a family here.

Are you serious?

(CHUCKLES)

Why not?

I'm going to have to come three times

a year to source antiques anyway.

What's to keep us from

setting up our base here?

(BOTH LAUGHS)

What do you think?

I don't know.

(CHILD SPEAKING HINDI)

This yours?

Hey.

(SPEAKING IN HINDI)

What are you saying?

I'm asking her if you and I

should stay here forever.

(SCREAMING)

(GASPS)

(PANTING)

- How can you sleep?

- Ow!

So peacefully!

Whoa, whoa.

Sweetheart, stop. Stop.

It's okay,

it's okay, I'm here.

It's not okay.

Stop it, stop it.

- I'm here, I'm here. It's okay.

- (SOBBING)

I got you.

It's okay, I got you.

LUCY:
(GIGGLES)

Winston, come on.

Winston.

Good boy! Good boy.

Come on, boy.

- Come on, Winston.

- (WINSTON BARKING)

- MICHAEL:
Lucy?

- Come on.

Morning, sweetheart.

- Morning.

- How did you sleep?

Good.

MICHAEL:
Morning, Piki.

Morning, sir.

MARIA:
Michael.

Yeah, what's up?

I am...

Hey, you don't have

to say anything, okay?

I'm lost, Michael.

I don't know if I can live with it.

We're going to be fine.

We'll get through this.

Maria?

Hello?

Mrs. Harwood retired early

for the night, sir.

She had a migraine.

I put Lucy to bed.

Right.

(SPEAKS IN HINDI)

- Okay.

- Night, sir.

Night-night, Piki.

MARIA:
(ON VIDEOTAPE)

Those are F and G fingers.

F and G fingers.

Wrists up like

there's an orange.

And a one, two,

a one, two, three, four!

(PIANO MELODY PLAYING)

MICHAEL:
(ON TAPE)

What?

- Yeah!

- (KIDS CHEERING)

MARIA:
Well done.

LUCY:
A bunch of scribbles.

MICHAEL:
You guys are fantastic!

Was that really you playing?

It was too good. You sure

it wasn't Mommy? (LAUGHING)

No.

MICHAEL:
You're telling me it

was really you playing?

That's basically it.

MICHAEL:
Can't believe it!

My children are geniuses.

- Yeah.

- I'm so proud of you both.

MARIA:
They worked on it

all day just for you.

Happy Father's Day.

(INHALES SHAKILY)

(SNIFFLES)

We're going to

get through this.

(BOTTLE CLATTERS)

Maria?

Maria!

Maria! Open your eyes,

sweetheart.

(AMBULANCE SIREN WAILING)

Can you hear me? Maria?

I need you to listen

to my voice, please.

Sweetheart, I need

you to focus, okay?

I need you to

fight this. Please!

Maria, I can't

live without you.

(BREATHING THROUGH VENTILATOR)

OLIVER:
Mommy!

Please help me.

Mommy! Mommy!

Mommy, I can't get free!

My leg's stuck!

Luce?

Lucy. No, no, no.

Lucy, please wake up, baby.

- Mommy, get me out!

- Lucy, please wake up!

No, no, no!

Mommy, I can't get free!

It hurts!

(SCREAMS)

Please get me out!

(GRUNTING)

(SCREAMS)

Okay, okay.

Please wake up.

- I'm scared!

- I know you're scared! I'm scared, too! Pull!

Okay? Oliver, come on.

I don't care if it hurts,

you have to pull. You have to pull!

(MUFFLED) I know it hurts.

You have to pull.

Keep your nose up.

Keep your nose all the way up.

Keep your nose on the ceiling.

We're all going to be okay.

Okay. Okay.
