I've been writing a blog

about how much you suck.

What's it called?

Why You Suck dot net.

- It's a clear title.

- Are you gonna read it?

- Nope.

- Our friends think it's hilarious.

If you don't read it, I won't just email

it with a password to people we know.

- I'll make it public.

- Go nuts, Jules.

Stuff it up your blog.

Love dies. All of it.

Which is why you should

never give your cats names

like Snow and Balls.

Because when she leaves...

you'll get Balls.

How do I know

Some men die

In a fall

Not trusting their nose

To show them the way?

How do I know

If I love you

When all these things

Come and go?

You can't stand them together

In some neat little row

So how do I know?

How do I know? How do I know?





How do I know?

If I know you?

How do I know

If I love you?

When you've drawn that imaginary line

The way that you're walking

Two steps behind?

How do I know

If I love you?

How do I know?

How do I know?

How do I know?

How do I know?

How do I know?

How do I know?

How do I know?

How do I know?

How do I know?

How do I know?



No one was more surprised than me.

Believe me.

Why You Suck has become

the template for people

asking themselves:

is their partner wrong for them?

Tell me about the moment you realized

that your husband was that for you.

Well, I sold real estate,

so that he could write, and I hated it.

But, you know, I believed in him.

And every day I would climb

to the top of this mountain

to watch the sunset.

And then, one day,

when I was standing up there,

I realized that I had

never done it with him.

He was afraid of heights.

And it was my favourite thing

and we'd never once shared it.


- Clarity.

- What does Leo think of all of this?

- Oh, he's still never read it.

- Do you really believe that?

- Believe it.

- Yes!

He has this amazing ability

to just ignore criticism...

which, you know, I admired at first.

And then I came to see it

as his worst trait.

What does make him angry?

He was the writer.

I have news, Jules:

writing a blog does not make you a writer.

- Speaking of, you have some news.

- Yes, I do.

Next month Random House

is releasing Why You Suck, the book.

- Congratulations.

- Thank you.

- That's amazing. - I know. It's incredible.

- Did you ever expect?

No. Never in my wildest dreams.

Dad wanted us to come over.

We're supposed to say:

because we think you're cool,

like an uncle.

But we won't lie to you

and tell you:
don't watch Julie

on TV and want to kill yourself again.

I never wanted to kill myself.

Hey, there's a wedding!

Wow! They look rich.

We could make fun of

their need to display that.

Ravi and Pia are gifted,

which sounds cool, but really,

you don't want kids to be too clever.

- A grown man in pyjamas?

- I know! It's embarrassing.

Hey, I could teach you to throw.

Like you know!

You throw like a g...

No, mine!

Gimme, gimme!

Get off!

- He said I throw like a girl!

- Well, you are a girl.

Here's how you throw a football!

For Ravi, that punt fixed in his mind

an ideal of the woman

he wanted to marry one day.

Pia, a firm believer in role models,

saw the woman she wanted to become.

And me. I just knew.

Alright! You guys

gotta go home now.

Leo's other worst trait

was unrealistic dreams.

Things that would just

take hold of him all of a sudden.

Absurd things.

Impossible things.

Things that everyone...

Colette, Danny,

you have given and pledged

your promises to each other

and have declared your everlasting
