Wow, it was barely

an inch when we went in.

It's so beautiful.

It's good,

it's good, it's good.

I can't feel my fingers.

Thank you.

... do anything for love

You do not like this song.

I would do anything for love

I would do anything for love

You have to turn it off.

But I won't do that

Oh, no, I won't...

I'm married to a cheeser!

Please, stop!

You love it.

Say you love it. Stop! Ow!

Stop it!

You love that song.

Oh, Leo.

Hey, I have this theory.


That a girl's guaranteed to get

preggers if she does it in a car.



I have a theory, too.

My theory is about moments.

Moments of impact.

My theory is that

these moments of impact,

these flashes of high intensity

that completely turn

our lives upside down,

actually end up

defining who we are.


Next in line.

One of my absolute

favorite moments.


You forgot your permit.

Yeah. Well, I just sort of come

here to enjoy the two-hour line.

The permit's sort of a bonus.

The Art Institute.

You work there?

No, I'm a student.

I'm Paige.

I'm sorry. I'm Leo.

Well, thank you for this, Leo.

You know what, I noticed, in a

totally non-threatening way,

we have the same RPP zone.

Is that right?



You have impressive

powers of observation.


What's an RPP zone?


permit parking zone.


That sounds intimate.



What I was thinking is that...

I think we owe it

to ourselves, really,

to maybe get a drink,

out of respect for our

zone compatibility and all.




All right, okay.

After you.

Pick a hand. Pick a hand.

Pick a hand.

That one.

Here we go.



This is good.

Of the water's waves

Still I know you're

in the darkness shining

When the sun

starts coming through

Or when the cardinal

chides the moon

Let me know if you

need anything else.

I believe in energies

That no one has to see

for us to prove

I believe in you and me

And everything

we'll ever see and do




Specks of gold

in the river running

From the deep moonlight

When the sun

starts coming through

Or when the cardinal

chides the moon

That no one has to see

for us to prove

The rain pours down

in a million rivers

Did you just fart?



Maybe a little.

That is so twisted.

But totally romantic.

God, I'm so in love

with you, it's insane.

As you know,

your wife's CTscan


intracranial hemorrhaging.

We purposely keep patients

with traumatic brain injuries

in a comatose state in order

to calm their systems

and allow the brain time to heal

itself while the swelling subsides.

And then we slowly

wean them off it. Now...

The thing is, each one

of us is the sum total of

every moment that

we've ever experienced,

with all the people

we've ever known.

And it's these moments

that become our history.

Like our own personal greatest

hits of memories that we play

and replay in our minds

over and over again.

Aren't you hungry?



What you doing?




What's that?


Oh, nothing?

Food's ready.

Look, if you keep

feeding that fleabag,

it's gonna keep coming

back and I'm allergic.

Like you claim to be

allergic to cilantro?

I can't stand cilantro.


But you're not allergic.

Does anybody want strawberries I

bought at the farmers' market?

Buying groceries, bad sign.


And we all know

what that means.

I like her.

She's like our mascot.

Thanks, I think.

I would rather have her than that

ferret you tried to make us adopt.

And she makes great coffee.

Let's keep her.

Thank you.
