Ein, zwei, drei, vier!

There is a Jewish story.

An ordinary Jewish joke.

A father was teaching his little son

to be less afraid,

to have more courage,

by having him jump down the stairs.

He put his son on the second stair

and said, "Jump, and I'll catch you. "

Then on the third stair, and said,

"Jump, and I'll catch you. "

The little boy was afraid, but he trusted

his father and did what he was told,

and jumped into his arms.

The father put him on the next step,

and then the next,

each time telling him,

"Jump, and I'll catch you. "

Then the boy jumped

from a very high step,

but this time, the father stepped back

and the boy fell flat on his face.

He picked himself up,

bleeding and crying,

and the father said to him,

"That'll teach you. "

- Here, put this sweater on.

- Nuh-uh.

Don't be ridiculous! You're shaking

like a bowl of Jell-O. Put the sweater on!

- Mom!

- Oh, for God's sake!

- I betrothe you to me...

- I betrothe you to me...

...with this ring...

... with this ring...

...according

to the Jewish law.

I betrothe you to me

according to the Jewish law.

I betroth you to me forever

in righteousness and justice,

in kindness and in mercy

and you shall know God.

For you.

Ahh!

Aargh!

Well, I'm dying.

You're not dying. You had an episode

and they want to watch you.

- Have a nice weekend.

- Hm?

- She's always dying.

- Why are you rushing?

Sorry, rounds took forever. Sorry I'm late.

Oh, baby, no problem.

- Have a good evening.

- Thank you.

You're late for Shabbat and you have to

tell this stranger our private business?

Mom, you're lucky we come at all.

I'm lucky you come to Shabbat?

Why is that? Stop eating.

Cos it's the 21st century,

cos we're not in Babylon.

We don't have to remind ourselves

to let our land lie fallow

- The whole point of Shabbat is...

- I was eleven minutes late!

You're getting worked up,

and being worked up all the time

never got anyone pregnant.

We've been trying for 10 months!

- Where does everyone have to get to?

- I'm not worked up!

I would just like very much to have a baby.

- So adopt.

- Who's really mine.

# Blessed are You #

In China,

they're throwing them into trash cans.

# Our God, King of the universe #

Adopt a baby, for God's sake,

adopt a baby and then have a baby.

- You're 39 years old!

- That's what you did.

That's why you can't do it, because I did it?

Being like me is such a...

- There's a feeling.

- No, there's not!

When he was little, I watched you.

I watched you... watch him.

I saw you look at each other.

It was different.

I want that.

You listen to me.

There's no difference.

Are you here?

Where are you?

I'm in here.

Sweetie, can you come in here

and sit down for a minute?

I'll be there in one second.

Hi.

Sit down.

You stand up.

Sweetie, please sit down.

And take your coat off.

Maybe you should take it off.

Well?

I made a mistake.

I'm sorry.

I made a mistake.

You made what?

If I could blink my eyes

and it would be a year from now...

and we could be friends, best friends,

I would do it.

We teach across the hall from each other.

I'll see you all the time, every day.

But listen, I want...

- I want you to know something.

- Do you want?

Yeah, thank you.

What did you want me to know?

I'm 100 percent sure.

Is it because I didn't say the right thing

the other night?

- If you wanna pursue this drawing thing...

- It's nothing.

- I just meant that if...

- I'm attracted to...

...somebody has to make some money.

I don't...

- I can't make love if we don't talk.

- I don't, I don't want this life!
