File's been erased.

Hard drive's gone.

- Good morning.

- Hey, baby.

- Come back to bed.

- No, I can't.

- Come on. Come on.

- No, I can't.

- I'm gonna be late.

- Mmm.

Can you at least

stay for breakfast?

- No.

- Please?

I can't.

I'll call you

if I'm running late, okay?

- Okay.

- I love you.

I love you.



I'm in here, baby.

So, I can't get you to stay?

What if I, uh--

What if I wrote a note, like in school,

and I said, "Dear Edward, please

excuse Anthony from his meeting today

because his wife never gets

a chance to see him"?

Come on. Can you stay for another

half an hour, hmm?


I'll make it really quick.

You never make it really quick.

- Come on.

- I can't, baby.

Come on.

It's a big day.

I know what today is.

Zeffert sent me this file.

It's so big I can't even download it.

I don't understand. If he would've just

handed it to me, I would've read it by now.

I thought technology

was supposed to help us

instead of slow things down.

Oh, that reminds me.

Something came for you by ZepEx.

- I put it in your briefcase.

- Thank you.


The whole thing crashed.

I don't have time for this.

Okay, go.

I'll take care of it.

- Are you sure?

- Yes.

- Thank you.

- Okay.

Look, I know-- I know, uh,

this isn't ideal, all right?

But I love you,

and I'll make it up to you tonight.

Okay. I love you.


Hey, that's great.

Great start.




Hey, Sumner.

- Oh, hey.

- Hey. Hey.

- Hey.

- Yeah. How are you?

Good. Good. Good.

What do you think of the, uh...

- Looks great. Great.

- Yeah.

- Yeah.

- Sprinklers are just giving me hell.

You know, I have to rotate them,

like, every hour.

- Can't get somebody out here, huh?

- No.

Hey, um, what do you think

of the turtle?

It's, um-- Yeah.

Yeah, I like the beads.

- It's Christmas.

- Yeah.

You know, I figure if my ex-wife

ever stops by,

she'll be, uh, impressed.

I'm sorry.

I didn't mean that.

- It's just this-- this-- this whole--

- It'll be fine.

...separation thing is just--

It'll work itself out.

- Really?

- It'll be okay.


So, did you guys ever figure out

- No. No.

- ...that job thing?

Uh, the network specialist,

uh, position?

I'll check on that again today.


I really appreciate it.

- Don't even worry about it.

- Okay. So, uh--

- Don't even worry.

- I'll see you tonight then.

- All right. Yeah-- No-- I gotta go.

- Yeah, me, too.

Edward called for some ZHP file.

He wants it back.

From what I can gather is,

Zeffert borrowed it on Friday

but never returned it.

Security said he stopped by

over the weekend,

but, uh, nobody can get

ahold of him.

- Call him at home?

- Yep, and his cell.

I've left several messages.

- That's not like him at all.

- Mm-mmm.

It's weird.

Today's the buyout.


What? And what?

Your anniversary.

Oh, my-- Oh, my God.

Today's my anniversary.

- Yeah.

- I'm such an idiot.

I can't believe I forgot to--

Uh, uh, send-- Oh, my God.

Send flowers to the house,

- like, now, if you could.

- Okay. Done.

Baby, come on.

That's not fair.

It's not every night.


It-- It's now.

It's because of the buyout.

Oh, it's the buyout,

and before that,

it was the gene therapy launch,

and before that...

I mean, it's always something.

What happened to our plans?

Baby, what are you talking about?

This is our plan.

This-- This is--

This is the plan.

We pay Edward back, and we--

and we start our family.

Look, I messed up with the--

with the anniversary.

I know. I get it.

And I love you,

and I'm sorry, but I...
