Magnificent, aren't they?

God's tears.


It's beautiful.

So are the others.

I, uh...

I guess I just...

have to make the right decision.

In the end, it's not your eye

that must decide.


Did Rebecca call?

Yeah. She'll be at the restaurant

in an hour to take you to the airport.

I put your tickets, passport, and

your new cell phone in your briefcase

and Hong will be there

in ten minutes.

Thanks. See you in four days.

The second you land,

those guys are gonna start poking

and prodding to see what you're made of.

Are you sure I'm the right guy

for this, Walter?

I'm no good at this corporate stuff,

I hate flying--

and isn't this Bob's thing, anyway?

Bob? Come on, you're gonna be fine.

Just don't eat anything

that wears a collar,

and if you need me, I'll be on the beach

in Cozumel screening my calls.

Look...this is a big break for you.

But I'm giving you this account because

I think you're the right man for the job.

Besides, you're gonna be a member

of the family soon, right?

Going down, please.

Oh. Matthew, keep away

from the bang-bang girls

or Rebecca will kick my ass, all right?


- Matty!

- Luke! Hey, man.

- How are you, man?

- I'm good. How are you?

Really good. Really good.

Good to see you. You look great.

Thanks, man. I mean, I do.

You still doing that whole

advertising thing in New York?

I moved back.

- When did you get back?

- Two months ago.

Two months? What are you doing?

You don't call your friend?

You could've called me.

I know. I just--I moved back

with a girl that I met in New York

and I'm working for her brother,

and it's...

That sounds serious.

Maybe. I don't know.

We'll see.

You look very serious.

Look at you.

I know, man.

Hold on!

Listen, man,

Yeah, I need to probably

move my car, too.

And then I'm going to China tonight.

- China? That's weird.

- Yeah, I know.

Let me give you a call

when I get back. Monday?

Yeah, sounds good--shut up!

All right, look, here's my card.

Don't wait two years--call me!

The old shop.

- All right?

- I will, man.

You look good.

That's a nice tie.

Good to see you.

Are you done? Come on!

He's very impressed

with what you've done,

and he assures you

that when you get to China,

you'll be met with much enthusiasm

and support.

Thank you very much.

Some champagne, please.

Excuse me.

Excuse you.

Matthew is a, uh, photographer.

Beautifully, wonderfully creative man.

And here's my favorite sister.

His only sister.

Mr. Hong, Ms. Chin,

this is my sister Rebecca.

Hey, Sweetie. How are you?

As you can see,

Matthew has managed to make himself

indispensable even away from the office.

Here, Sweetie. Just take one of these

Mr. Hong would like

to propose a toast.

Oh, yes.

To a long and prosperous marriage...

of our two companies.

Are you okay?


Um, excuse me.

I'll be right back.

Excuse me,

Just a minute!


No, you listen!

And I don't feel like calming down.

It's over, okay?

That's why I wanted to meet.

No, actually I don't think

it was an accident.

It's in the paper!

I don't ever want

to see you again, Daniel.

Stop following me,

or I'll call the police!



Whoa. Hey, come on.

Are you all right?

I pissed her off.

You wanna put that

on this card, please?

Oh! This stupid...

Need some help there, Mare?

- What's up?

- It's so frustrating.

I just can't work out

why there's no sound.

I just...

Matthew? Hello?

Anybody home?

I'll take this one, if you want.

Knock yourself out, kid.

Oh, my God.


- They wanna know how long--hey!

- Mary, I'll be right back.
