- I don't have custody of the kids.

- Yeah.

- You know what?

- I don't get custody.

It is an insane pathetic joke,

what I've had to go through.

Right now, right now she doesn't know

where the kids are, do you?

- Do not talk about me as a mother.

- Are they at home?

I'm so sick to death of you talking about

me as a mother

- and what I've done wrong!

- They at your sister's? Where...

they're probably at a firehouse

somewhere. She'd just drop 'em off

- with a fireman, you know?

- Do not talk about that!

I am sick of you accusing me

of not being a good mother!

- Are they at home? Are they at home?

- Seven years I've been a good mother!

A perfect mother?

I can't have custody.

Just remember when we went out.

Just remember how you...

Right now. Where is Tim

right f***ing now?

Don't you talk about me

being a mother. I hate you!

Hey, I got an idea.

Why don't you just kiss my left nut?

- I told you this was a bad idea.

- You know what, Ken?

A bad idea would be to let your client

walk outta here today and drag

this thing out for another year, wasting

more time and wasting more money.

The only good idea is to let

me and John do our job

- and mediate this thing right here.

- You wanna hear the crazy thing?

I know it doesn't feel like it,

but we're making progress.

- Mm-hmm.

- We settled the deal with the cars.

Let's see, that takes us

to frequent flyer miles. We're flying!

- Those are mine.

- I want them.

You know what we're gonna do? We're

gonna split 'em right down the middle.

- How'd that be, Mr. Kroger?

- It would be no-not good at all!

- I earned those miles!

- Yeah, you earned them flying

- to Denver to meet your whore.

- Oh, Lord.

Well, she's not afraid

to express herself sexually

- if that's what you mean.

- She's a stripper, for God's sake!

- She is not!

- Her name is Chastity!

She is white trash!

Same as you.


That's it,

go comatose for me, baby.

You shut your mouth when

you're talkin' to me!

Hold it. This is getting confusing.

You didn't always hate each other.

There had to be some nice moments,

during the courtship, maybe?

- Or the wedding?

- The wedding had to be fun!

- You have your families together.

- You have your decorations.

Families coming together.

That's a nice moment.

- What'd you have to eat?

- Crab cakes.

- Are you kidding me? Crab c...

how could you not have a good time

- eating crab cakes? I love 'em.

- Crab cakes, I love crab cakes.

- They're phenomenal.

- And did you have a band?

- Did you have a band? Good or bad?

- Yeah.

Who gives a sh*t? It's a great band,

it's a bad band, it's like pizza, baby.

- It's good no matter what.

- That's true. You got them...

- There's music in the air!

...playing "Shout" and you hate it.

- Yeah. Oh-oh-oh-oh-hey

- A little bit softer now

- Oh-oh-oh-oh, hey

- Shout now, jump up and shout now.

It's a good time,

do you know what I mean?

- Yeah.

- Rubbin' up against each other,

just a couple of kids who like to f***,

trying to make it honest. I get it.

Guys, the real enemy here is

the institution of marriage.

It's not realistic, it's crazy!

Hey, don't do this

for the other person.

It's about saying yes to yourself

- and saying yes to your future.

- Say yes.

And have some opportunities for

yourself. I'm sure you'd love

to be free, maybe go out and meet

some Latin guy that can dance,

grind up on you, make you

feel dangerous but also safe.

And how about you? Don't you want

to get inside Chastity

without having to wonder

if everyone's gonna find out?

- God, wouldn't that be sweet?

- Wouldn't that be nice?

And have some Latin guy

sweating all over you,

talking to you in languages

you don't understand,

- needing you, wanting you, taking you?

- All we're trying to say is,

put your swords away

for a second.

Let's finish this

and let's move on.

Get out there and get

some strange ass.

Could you give her a glass

of water so she can take that?

Hey, John, that's weird.

That glass looks half full to me.

Wow, now that you mention it,

it is half full.

He can have the miles.

Nah, sweetie,

you take the miles.

Great. Great! Let's sign

the paperwork and we are done!

This is just semantics. If you guys

want to throw a couple miles at us,

we'll take a couple. The big this is,

is that we're all movin' on.

Could you two just not talk anymore?

Oh, good, you got it.

Is it 100% goose down?

- Yes. Why do you need this?

- Are you sure?

I sleep over at John's house

every year for his birthday.

Okay, that's not creepy.

I guess it is a little creepy

when a young man who happens

to be an only child

loses both of his parents

in a tragic accident

one month before his birthday

and then has

a best friend make a vow

that he will never spend

his birthday alone again.

Maybe that would fall under

the category of creepy.

Oh my God.

I'm so sorry.

- That's okay.

- No, you're really sweet.

I've got the perfect girl for you.

Janice, I apologize to you

if I don't seem real eager

to jump into a forced,

awkward intimate situation

that people like to call dating.

I don't like the feeling.

You're sitting there, you're wondering,

"Do I have food on my face?

Am I eating? Am I talking too much? Are

they talking enough? Am I interested?

I'm not really interested.

Should I play like I'm interested?

But I'm not that interested,
