Don't forget about tonight,


See you later.

Do we have to go?

Yes, we do.

Mmm. I love you, babe.

Why don't you come on back to bed?

Don't tempt me. I'm already late.

- Hello?

- Leah, it's Tom.

You're worried about Wharton.

Well, I wasn't until Alan called me

at 6:
00 a.m. this morning.

They don't think we have the votes.

Tom, I've got this.

I have a scheduled call

with the senator at 9:30

and she made it very clear

that she could turn this.

Yeah, I'm nervous.

It's a big account for us.

Have I ever let you down?

Speak to me after the call.


Can I help you?

Can I help you?

- Hi.

- Oh, um...

I'm sorry.

I'll have a, um...

Iced latte.

- Are you sure?

- Yes.

Okay. That'll be $2.75.


I've got an iced latte.

Who was here first?

- You take it.

- No, you were here first.

No. No, it's all right. You look like

you're in a rush, and I can wait.

So, please.

- That's so sweet.

- My pleasure.

Thank you.

- Uh, miss.

- My God!

Where is my head today?

Thank you.

Hey, come on.

What is he doing?

Okay. Can I get a little respect, here?

I'm about to make a fool out of myself.

Karen and I have been together now

for, wait for it...

- Ten years.


Karen, I adore you.

And I just hope that the next 10 years

are as amazing as these past 10 have been.



You're supposed to read to me.

Oh, is that right?

- Hi.

- Hey, buddy.

You look funny upside-down.

Then why aren't you laughing? Huh? Huh?

How come you're laughing? Let me hear it.

There it is! There it is.

Okay, mister,

it is way past your bedtime.

Say good night to everybody.

- Good night to everybody!

- Very funny.

- Up top on the way out, buddy.


All right.

- You're a natural.


- How's that?

- With kids.

Oh, yeah. No, I love kids.

Especially when you get to play

with them a little bit,

then give them back to their parents

to take them home.

Well, I can tell.

You're gonna make a good father.

That was a beautiful party.


What's up? You good?

I'm fine.

It's not gonna happen, is it?

Now, we've already been through this, babe.

Exactly. We have been through this

and nothing seems to change.

Well, we also agreed that we weren't gonna

talk about this anymore, remember?

When I looked over at you being

so good with that little boy, it just...

Because I know you don't want that.

No, no. I never said that

I didn't want that.

I'm just... I'm just not ready.

We've been dating for almost two years.

Yes, and it's been a wonderful two years.

I don't want to lose you.

I don't either.

But I do want a family.

I know that!

Now, come on. You know my parents.

They hated each other

when they were together.

When they split, it was

a relief for everybody.

Both of my brothers divorced,

my sister divorced.

That's two within the last year, okay?

Joe, he can't even stand

the sight of his ex.

And I don't want that.

I don't want to

wake up one morning hating you.

I'm 36 years old.

I've been dating my whole life.

I'm dated out!

I don't want to do it anymore.

I want a husband

and children.

While, while I'm still

young enough to enjoy them.

I can't do it like this.

I can't.

I want to propose to you

when I'm ready to propose.

Not because you feel the need for me to

do it right here, right now, at this moment.

I don't want to do it like that.

I'm sorry.

I can't wait for you anymore.

So, what are you saying?

I think maybe you should go.

Yeah, maybe I should.

Jesus, Tom, you scared me.

I didn't know anyone else was here.

I had dinner with a client

and realized I left my phone in my office.
