On the Rocks (2020) Movie Script

[Felix] And remember,
don't give your heart to any boys.
You're mine.
Until you get married.
Then you're still mine.
[Laura chuckles]
Um, okay, Dad.
[jazz music plays]
[breathes deeply]
[Laura whispering]
Where are we going?
[Dean] It's gonna be fun. Come on.
[both chuckle]
Nobody tells you
that once you get married,
you will never fuck again.
If you like fucking,
marriage ain't for you.
[audience laughing]
Shit, I haven't fucked
in seven years.
- I've had intercourse.
- [audience laughing]
[door opens]
[Dean grunts]
[Laura moans]
- [grunts]
- Hi.
[sighs] Hi.
- [Maya] Mom, can I have some juice?
- [Laura] Yes.
- How was London?
- [Dean] London was great.
- [Laura] Yeah?
- English guys are in for 20%.
- [Laura] Really?
- Yeah.
- [Laura] Well done.
- Thank you.
- [giggling] Daddy.
- We have to put a deposit down
on that house for July.
That week in July.
And I have to figure that out by tomorrow.
Baby, I don't know
what's happening then, okay?
- I'll check, okay?
- Get your shoes on.
- I don't wanna be late.
- Come here. Kisses. Come on.
We're so late.
Oh, and, um, Jimmy's new restaurant.
Thursday or Friday?
I just have to let him know
'cause they're really busy.
[Dean] Okay. Thursday.
- Put your shoes on, please. Please.
- [Maya] Bye.
- I love you. Bye.
- Bye. Bye.
- [Maya] Come on, Theo.
- Hey.
- Any more questions? [chuckles]
- Aw, cute.
- Please put your shoes on.
- [Theo] I want the princess shoes.
You gotta put your real shoes on.
We're so late, okay?
- Okay.
- Okay.
[Laura] Okay. Sorry. Gotta go. Gotta go.
- Did you finish your reading?
- Yeah.
- Yeah? Huh?
- I finished my reading too.
What? You did?
- Mom, we're really late.
- Okay. Okay.
- Hey, let's get coffee this week, okay?
- Oh, yeah. For sure.
Okay, okay. Help Mommy, okay?
Take your toy.
[girl] Wait up for me!
- Okay, have a good day.
- Bye.
- Love you.
- [Theo] Goodbye.
- Bye. Bye.
- [Maya] Bye.
- Okay. Okay.
- [woman] Hi.
- Hi.
- I know. I look awful.
- No.
- I just had a peel.
My face will be red and flaky for a week.
But then it'll be so smooth,
you won't believe it.
Okay. Okay. Let's go.
Laura. Oh, what a stroke of luck.
Hi, little boo-boo.
We need to have coffee.
I'm sure you don't have time.
But we need to have coffee.
I'm seeing that guy again.
- Oh, are you?
- Yeah, it's happening.
And I actually think it's fine.
- Yeah.
- But for me, I cannot stop texting him.
- Right.
- But then I text him, and I'm like,
"I know that every time I text you,
- "I'm pushing you farther away."
- Mmm-hmm.
But then I do that, and I keep doing it.
I cannot stop myself.
- Oh. Right.
- And then I'm like, "Okay, you know what?
"Be tender. Be tender with yourself."
Because this is
a matter of the heart, you know?
It's like, mmm, we had an affair
during Hurricane Sandy.
Like, the entire thing is something
that I'm trying to look at
with introspection and empathy. And...
- I'm sorry, but we actually have to go.
- Oh, no.
- But I'll see you soon.
- I'm so sorry. I'll text you.
- Okay. Bye.
- Yeah.
- [woman] Laura.
- Hi.
Hi. I'm so late.
- Okay. Talk to you later. Bye.
- Have a good one. Bye.
Get in.
Can you please put on
your seat belt for me?
[Theo] Read me another story.
Go to sleep.
- Can I ask you a weird question?
- [woman over phone] Sure.
Well, last night Dean got back.
He was really out of it.
He takes Xanax on the plane.
And he started kissing me,
and then he heard my voice.
And it was like I woke him up.
He was surprised, and stopped.
It was almost like
he thought I was someone else.
- What?
- [sighs]
Wow, that's weird.
But he was just out of it.
Yeah, I guess.
He's such a good guy.
And he adores you.
[sighs] You know, he's traveling
with clients all the time, and...
I'm just the buzzkill waiting
to schedule things.
I... I can't even write.
I should've never sold a book
before writing it.
Oh, that's okay. Give yourself a break.
You have a toddler.
And you'll get back to work
when you're ready.
- [Felix over phone] All right, hang on.
- Yeah.
[Felix speaking French]
I can hear you now.
What do you think,
from a man's point of view?
Am I crazy?
No. He thought
you were someone else.
- What? You think so?
- Absolutely.
You know what, you're just dark
and don't know anything
about a committed relationship.
Oh, really?
Yes, really.
You need to start thinking
like a man.
- [woman] Felix!
- [sighs]
Thanks, Dad.
That's really helpful.
Is that a birthmark?
You know, I don't know why
I asked you of all people. Never mind.
- If you need me, I'm here.
- [sighs]
Hang on, shorty.
[Felix speaking French]
- [snickers]
- [chatter in background]
You there, shorty?
Enjoy Paris.
Have a French 76 for me.
I can try. Call if you need anything.
I'll be back soon. I love you.
[Theo] Mommy! Mommy!
Time for the llama's haircut?
No. I have to wash her first.
It's okay.
First, I'm gonna give you a bath.
We're gonna clean you up.
I'm gonna brush your hair.
I'm brushing your hair, little llama.
Brush, brush, brush, brush, brush.
[Gran] Will I see you
and the girls this weekend?
- Your mother and sister are coming.
- Oh, Theo.
Um, you know what, Gran?
Can I... Can I just call you back?
I'm-I'm taking Theo to a class.
See you then.
[Theo] Three, four, five, six.
Got it. Good job.
Wheels on the bus
go round and round
All over town
The horn on the bus
goes beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep
beep, beep, beep
[Theo babbles]
[Laura] Head back. Head back.
Face me. Face me. Face this way.
Here. Ooh.
I love you.
Row, row, row your boat
gently down the stream
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is but a dream
[phone buzzes]
- [dance music playing]
- [chattering]
- There you guys are. Hi.
- Hi.
- Cheers.
- Cheers.
Hard at work, I see. Cheers, cheers.
Love what you're wearing.
You're looking so hot. [laughs]
How's the food?
Is it good? Is it good?
- Hi.
- Hey.
You look good.
Here. Meet the team.
- Oh, my God. Hi. You must be Laura.
- Baby, this is the team.
- Hey. Yeah.
- Fiona.
- So good to finally meet you.
- I'll be right back.
Oh, I'm sorry. Dean must've told you,
there's just so much
going on here right now.
- Yeah.
- Yeah, it's crazy with the, um...
With the new offices
opening and everything, and... Oh!
I heard that the guys from A24 were here.
I have to go speak with them.
We just started working with the Ghosts.
Have you seen them?
- Oh, no.
- Oh, yeah. They're actually really good.
- Oh.
- [laughs]
Well, can I get you something?
- Uh, I think I'm fine for now.
- Great.
Jenna, Chase, this is Laura, Dean's wife.
- Hi.
- Be right back.
- Hi.
- [Jenna] Hi.
So... you work here?
Uh-huh. Yeah.
I started a few months ago, so...
Oh, cool. Are you liking it so far?
Yeah. Yeah.
- Dean's really great to work with.
- Oh.
[indistinct chatter]
- [Fiona] Congrats! Guys! 500K!
- [all cheering]
- Well done, team!
- Congrats.
Five hundred K.
It's all you. How sweet.
All of us.
- Thank you, guys. Thank you.
- [Dean] Thank you.
[man] Yeah.
- Well done.
- Thank you.
- We made it this...
- [mutters]
Oh, I know.
[Dean] Great party.
[Fiona] Told you
the party would go smoothly.
- Why didn't you trust me?
- [Dean] Okay.
- All right!
- [Fiona] Bye!
Babe, what a night.
Five hundred thousand new followers.
We-we're killing it.
The amount of engagement, the insight.
I mean, this is crazy.
I mean... between our briefs,
our team, the amount of, like, the ROIs,
return on investments, we're crushing it.
- So great.
- Yeah.
- Can I ask you something?
- Yeah.
I found, um, a woman's toiletry case
when I was unpacking your bag.
Oh. That's Fiona's.
She couldn't fit it in her carry-on,
so I put it in my luggage.
I must've forgot about it, so...
- Right.
- Yeah.
I'll just bring it to her tomorrow
at the office. Thank you.
[phone buzzes]
Let me have it.
Let me have it. [giggles]
Okay, okay. Here, let me.
Did anyone see my brush?
[Theo] We're going to see Grandma.
[Maya] And Mommy's grandma.
- Bye, babies.
- [Theo] Bye.
- [Maya] Bye.
- Say bye.
- Bye. Love you.
- [Maya] Love you.
- Have fun with your family.
- Yeah, right. Thanks.
- Okay. Try to have fun with your family.
- Okay.
Love you. If you need me,
I'll be at the office.
- Okay.
- All right?
Say bye.
- Bye, girls.
- [Maya and Theo] Bye.
- I love you.
- [Theo] Bye. Love you.
Love you.
- [Theo] Bye.
- [Dean] You too.
[Laura] Bye.
Hey, Gran.
- How are you?
- So glad you're here.
I laid out on the terrace last night
looking at the stars. It was glorious.
- Oh, that's so nice.
- [laughs]
How's the apartment?
Did you finish the bedroom?
They just finished, and it is so cheerful.
I could be in there with five blizzards
and not get depressed.
Oh, that's so nice.
I just got a luscious
cream rug from Cogolin.
You know, Laura...
If you're going to dress that way,
you could make more of an effort.
Please, Gran, I think she looks terrific.
Thank you.
You're welcome.
I talked to Dad the other day.
He's in Paris.
Oh. How is Felix?
You know, his usual chipper self.
I wonder what he's up to.
- Well, he does keep himself amused.
- [Laura] Mmm-hmm.
Oh, he was always a handful,
since he was a little boy.
He could never stay put for very long.
Never really knew what he was thinking.
I don't know how you can deal with him.
Your father owes me a visit.
[Gran chuckles]
Is Dean still traveling a lot
with that new assistant?
Um... account manager.
- Oh. Sorry.
- Yeah. She's, um...
- Yeah, she seems nice.
- [Amanda] Mmm.
She very attractive?
[Laura] I don't know. I mean...
Yeah, she's attractive.
New York is filled
with attractive women though.
Well, okay.
French fry?
No. Thank you.
They're so good.
[Theo babbling]
[Laura] Come on.
- Come on, Maya! Come on!
- [Maya] You better not use my markers.
- [Theo] Mom says you have to share.
- [Maya] Mom!
[robot vacuum buzzing]
[Maya] Mom, she's pulling my hair!
- [Dean sighs]
- [Maya] Don't do that! Stop!
[Theo] She's hurting me, Mom, Dad!
- [Maya] Mommy!
- [Dean groans]
- [Maya] Mommy!
- To be continued.
[Theo] Where's my toothbrush?
[Maya] Mom, did you remember
to check my homework?
Um, yes.
It's on the bench in the hallway.
[Theo] Can you pick up my little guy?
He's trying to get you.
Brush, please.
- Please, brush.
- [Theo] Okay.
- Go get your book bag.
- [Maya] Okay.
Rinse, rinse, rinse, rinse.
- Thank you.
- [Theo] Hurry up!
Can I have a cookie?
Can I have a cookie?
No, you cannot have a cookie.
We just had breakfast.
- And it's not just, like, a sexual thing.
- Mmm-hmm.
Because he's coming to me.
I'm the one with the ideas
for our company.
- Right.
- You know?
And, like, this whole thing started
because I was like,
"Why are nails not more ornamental?"
Obviously, they're functional.
We need them to hold
our furniture together.
But, you know, I was like,
"It's about these small details
that actually aren't just details.
They can be treasures."
And he was like, "That was really...
That's really inspiring."
And, in fact,
just having this conversation
is how we ended up being together.
- Okay, see you later.
- Okay, bye, bye, bye.
[Theo babbles] One, two, three,
four, five, six, eight.
Twinkle, little star
like a diamond in the
[phone buzzes]
Hey, kiddo.
Feel like hopping in?
Feel like scooting over?
Hi, Dad.
[Felix] You can still break my ribs.
- [Laura] Hi, Musto.
- [Musto] Hi, Laura. Nice to see you.
Mus, you know that this one
is named after the song...
Laura is the face in the misty night
Footsteps that you hear down the hall
You know this one, Musto?
The laugh, Musto
That floats on a summer night
That you can never quite recall
- It's one of my favorites.
- [Felix] Lead part, please.
- [whistling]
- [blowing]
- I can't whistle.
- Oh, come on.
[Laura] No, seriously.
[whistling continues]
No, I can't anymore.
It's so weird. Ever since I had kids.
Oh, no kid of mine
is gonna stop whistling.
We're working on this.
Come on.
- [continues whistling]
- [blowing]
Nice bracelet.
Thank you.
The bangle is a reminder that women
were once men's property.
I'm sure that's exactly
what Dean was going for.
- [thunder rumbling]
- [whistling]
[Laura] Do you think I'm underdressed?
[Felix] You just show 'em your cute mug.
- Oh, my gosh, do you look beautiful.
- [Laura] Ugh.
[Felix] You're about to see Cliff.
- Hello, Mr. Keane.
- Cliff. How's your mom's hip?
- Good, thanks.
- Good.
You tell her to do her exercises or she
may as well have kept the old one, huh?
Good afternoon, Mr. Keane.
- He thinks you're my girlfriend.
- [Laura] Uh-huh.
Hey, I'll have a Cutty on the rocks,
and a Bombay martini for the kid.
Oh. Okay. [chuckles]
You know what's interesting?
Back when humans walked on all fours,
it was the sight of the female haunches
that excited them.
So that when we finally
stood up on two legs,
it was the women with the rounded breasts
that mirrored the haunches
that were most exciting to the males.
So, they made babies with them,
and eventually, that shape
evolved into what is our modern female.
Ah. Wow.
And men were attracted
to adolescent females
because they were easier to catch,
therefore ultimately easier to mate.
And slowly, over time, these qualities...
Small size...
Smooth skin...
High voice...
Little or no beard...
Evolved into the qualities
most desired today.
So they prefer no beard?
Good to know.
Like you.
Thank you.
[inhales, exhales]
Ballet dancer?
Yes. I studied at the Bolshoi.
- [speaks Russian]
- [glasses clinking]
Dad, can we order? 'Cause I gotta get back
and pick up the kids.
Sure. I'll have the rib eye,
well done, with spinach.
I'll have the chopped salad, please.
Thank you.
Can you ever just act normal
around any woman?
She's a ballet dancer.
They love to be complimented.
So, do you miss having the gallery?
No. I still have the odd deal
here and there.
Did I tell you I got
a new assistant? Few days.
Oh. That's good.
[sighs] You know what's great about her?
She doesn't talk. She just listens.
That sounds perfect for you.
So Dean's going away a lot, huh?
On business trips?
Dad, not everyone is like you.
Where was he coming back from
when he was acting so strange?
- London.
- London?
Where was he staying?
I think it was Blakes?
- Blakes?
- Blakes. Yeah.
[chuckles] Why?
Blakes is a... cozy,
little off-the-beaten-track hotel
that I wouldn't stay at
if I were on a business trip.
[Laura] Huh.
I know a concierge over at Claridge's.
He knows all the concierges.
When was he there?
Last week, but let's not
get carried away, okay?
There was something.
Never mind.
There were some...
There were some of his
coworker's toiletries in his luggage.
Sloppy move.
But she couldn't put them
in her carry-on through security,
so he offered to put them in his luggage.
That's it.
Raise your hand if that sounds fishy.
You know what?
I shouldn't have said anything. Forget it.
- Have you checked his phone?
- No.
Well, do yourself a favor,
check his text messages.
If it's... I mean,
it may come to nothing, but, you know,
may as well make sure.
Dean is not like you, okay?
He's a nerd.
He's a good guy. A great dad.
He's a man. It's nature.
Males are forced to fight to dominate
and to impregnate all females.
[Laura chuckles]
[speaks Russian]
[softly] Sorry.
I remember the first time
I saw your mother.
It was a beach party.
Back then, all the girls wore bikinis.
Your mother walked out of the ocean
in a white one-piece swimming suit,
and that was it for me. I was done.
Staying on track...
What does Dean have planned
for your birthday?
He's not gonna be here for my birthday.
What kind of guy
forgets his wife's birthday?
He didn't forget.
He has a work trip,
but we're gonna celebrate
when he gets back.
That's not the same.
I traveled.
I never missed a birthday.
Right. But you had
some other shortcomings.
Like what?
Thank you.
[speaks Russian]
All right, I'm gonna take you to 21.
Just do me a favor.
Check his texts, will you?
And if there's anything else
you can think about London...
At some point, we can make a decision
about whether to tap his phone.
- No.
- Laura, come on.
He should be worshipping
the ground you walk on,
and if he's not, you need to know.
Now, it's probably nothing, but...
Check his phone.
[Maya chuckles]
[Dean] Do I swim?
[Maya] Yes.
[Dean] Am I green?
- [Theo] Yes.
- [Maya] Yes.
Do I make this noise? Gribbit.
- Yes.
- Mmm...
- [chuckles]
- No?
Hey, did you change your password?
[Theo] You're sometimes green.
I was, um, trying to send that
cute picture of the girls to my mom.
Oh. Yeah, there's a...
A new security protocol at work.
They just change it up
for some reason, so... Here.
You... You sure you don't
wanna use your phone?
No, I don't have that picture.
- Oh, okay. Oh.
- Thanks.
- You good?
- Yeah.
Okay. All right, girls.
Daddy gotta get to work.
- [Maya] Bye.
- [Dean kissing] Gimme a kiss.
[Dean] Hey, be nice.
And be nice to Mommy.
- [Theo] Bye, Daddy.
- [Dean] I love you.
- [Maya] Love you.
- [Theo] Love you.
Um, sorry I'm not gonna be here
for your birthday.
I'll make it up for you
when I get back, okay?
- Yeah.
- All right.
- Bye.
- Bye.
I need to have some for breakfast.
- [Maya] No! Definitely no.
- [Theo giggles]
- You can still fly.
- [Theo giggles]
Where can I toss you folks out?
- Ready? [grunts]
- [giggles]
- [Felix] My God.
- We're going to ballet. 51 Walker Street.
I'd love to.
You been working on your whistling?
- Not really.
- Shove over, tiny.
- [Laura] Hi, Musto.
- [Musto] Hi, guys. Nice to see you again.
[Laura] You too.
Honey, put your seat belt on.
- [Felix] Let's take it from the top.
- [Laura sighs] Okay.
- [Felix whistles]
- [Laura blows]
[Felix] Emerald City.
As quick as lightning.
[Laura] Just, like, air.
It helps to have a little bit more belly.
Try to get it from the belly.
- [Felix whistling]
- [Laura blowing]
[Laura] It's useless.
[woman] I'm sorry, hey.
Sorry. Wanna go say hi?
You did a really great job today.
Great job.
- Hey.
- Hi.
- Maya, my precious.
- [Maya laughing]
It's been too long.
I can't live without you.
Are you gonna come take my class? Hey.
You're in fourth position.
Uh, yeah. [chuckles]
Dad, this is Miss Mindy.
Hello, Miss Mindy.
- Goodbye, Miss Mindy. Thank you.
- [chuckling] Okay.
- See you next week.
- [Felix] Bye, Miss Mindy.
- Say bye, Maya. Okay.
- Bye.
Right this way, ladies.
- Ladies and ladies.
- [Laura chuckles]
- Musto, pull over a second.
- [Musto] You got it.
[Theo] I want a unicorn balloon.
Yeah, yeah, the unicorn.
[Felix] A, you're adorable
- B, you're so beautiful...
- [Laura] Come on, guys.
C, you're a cutie
- Full of charm...
- Okay.
I'm gonna jump in the shower quick.
Can you just watch them?
- Sure.
- [Maya] Come on.
- D, you're delightful...
- You wanna watch something?
- And E, you're exciting...
- Let's go.
- And F, you smell like you own a farm
- [Theo giggles]
- Does my foot smell funny? Ew.
- [Theo] Ew!
[Felix] 'Cause I was wondering...
- [Maya] We're watching Breaking Bad.
- What?
It's really good.
It's a great show. Have you seen it?
Yes, I have seen it.
It's great. It's not for kids.
What? Was there something bad on?
[Theo] Yeah.
Hey, look, I can shuffle.
[Laura] Oh, wow. That's great.
We learned that all young girls
should know how to shuffle. And how to...
- [Felix] Bluff. Right.
- [Theo giggles]
And how do you bluff?
- Poker face.
- Poker face.
Poker face.
Poker face.
- Nice. Nice.
- [all laughing]
And that girls should wear their hair long
and pretty, how boys like it.
Or you can wear it short,
or however you wanna wear it.
- Long and pretty.
- Long and pretty.
Don't listen to him, okay?
You're gonna grow up,
and you're gonna be strong women
who get to wear their hair
however they like.
Now it's dinnertime.
What were you drinking?
We made egg creams.
You were all out of Fox's U-bet.
But we made do.
[Laura] This is not good before dinner.
Well, nobody wants one after dinner.
- [Maya] Yeah.
- [Theo giggles]
Time to wash our hands.
Let's go. Dinnertime.
Let's get going. Jump over. Jump.
- [Theo giggles]
- [Felix] Wash your feet too.
You two guys drop food
on the floor too much.
And it's wasteful.
Clean toes, pop that back into your mouth.
Ten-second rule. Learn to respect it.
[Maya] Can we have burgers?
All right, I'm off.
We're gonna talk about
your birthday tomorrow?
Oh, yeah.
Um, actually, I don't really feel like
celebrating my birthday this year.
The celebration of the date of one's birth
was originally a pagan tradition.
Historically, Christians didn't celebrate
for that very reason.
Now, we're past that, aren't we?
- [sighs]
- Kids. Do you want a mom
who doesn't want to get taken out
for cake and ice cream?
[girls] Ice cream! Ice cream!
I just don't feel like it, okay?
- [Theo] Please?
- We'll talk tomorrow, okay?
- I love you all.
- [girls] Love you.
The biggest one the most,
and then in descending order.
- [Theo giggles]
- Keep up the good work.
[Theo] Bye, Grandpa!
[Maya] Bye, Grandpa.
Hey, Felix. You're back in town.
- I am.
- Yes, you are.
Been busy?
Yeah. Got a lot going on.
Do you?
- Yeah.
- Mmm-hmm.
- Well...
- You good?
- Yeah, I'm good.
- All right.
- You?
- I'm great.
- Good night.
- Good night.
[car door closes]
[Musto] Where to?
Let's go home.
[slow music plays]
- [Dean] Here you go. Thank you.
- [driver] No problem.
So, do you want anything
back from Los Angeles?
Um, where do I start?
- Ooh. Sounds expensive.
- [chuckles]
- Love you.
- Love you.
Hey, cheer up. Mwah.
- Bye.
- [Maya] Bye, Dad.
Have fun.
- [Theo] Bye.
- Can't have fun without you guys.
- That's my reality right now.
- Mmm-hmm.
And actually, now that I think about it,
perhaps she did show me some strength,
because here I am,
standing in my own power.
[Theo] Those flowers are pretty. Wow.
Wow. So pretty.
Look at these flowers.
Yeah, you can pull them out
if you want to.
- They're so nice.
- Yeah, if you wanna pull them out...
Do you think they're from Daddy?
- Yeah.
- Yeah?
Oh, they're from my daddy.
"Behind the speaker's platform
hung an oil painting, richly framed,
depicting the mouse in Aesop's fable
in its heroic act
of freeing a captive lion.
- "Well, it's like this..."
- [phone ringing]
Oh. Look, it's Daddy.
[Theo grunts]
[gasps] Hi.
- [girls] Hi.
- Hi. Hi, birthday girl. Hi, babies.
- [Theo] Hi.
- [Maya] Hi.
Greetings from Hollywood.
- [Laura chuckles]
- How's your birthday?
Good. It's pretty mellow.
It's really nice.
Nice. Good.
Babies, uh, go get the gift
that we wrapped for Mommy.
[Laura gasps]
[Theo] Oh, I'm gonna get it.
- Miss you guys so much.
- Miss you too.
- That's sneaky.
- [Dean and Theo chuckle]
- You guys planned this?
- Just a little.
[Maya] Do you think she's gonna like it?
- You look good.
- Thanks.
- How's it going?
- [Maya] It's right there.
- Miss that little smile.
- [both chuckle]
Okay, now listen, the gift,
I want you to understand,
it's a little different.
What is this enormous box?
It's nerdy,
but it's actually really cool.
Is this...
Do you wanna come help Mommy?
- Here, you take that.
- The girls helped me wrap it.
- Okay. Okay. Yeah.
- Got to take the tie off.
- Start with the ribbon.
- Gonna help her open it?
- Ribbon.
- Baby, back up so I can see Mommy.
What is it?
All right,
so this is different.
Twelve different appliances
all rolled in one.
It does, like, mixing, weighing,
kneading, chopping, everything.
- Wow.
- But, you know what,
it's perfect for, like,
making things.
Hey, guys, you gonna make Mommy
a big birthday pizza?
- [girls] Yes.
- Yes.
Thank you.
There's one more part to
your present...
- [doorbell buzzing]
- ...but it's not ready yet. Okay?
Um, I...
Can I call you back? I'm sorry.
You know what, I got meetings.
I'll call you later. I love you.
Bye. Love you.
[doorbell buzzing]
- Hello?
- [Felix] I'm down here.
What? I told you I wasn't coming.
[Felix] Buzz me in.
[Theo] Oh, yeah? Mama!
- [screams]
- [Maya] Stop being so annoying.
- [Laura] Get back in bed.
- [Theo giggles]
[Theo babbles]
[babbles] Mommy.
- Good night. Love you.
- [Maya] Good night, Mom. Happy birthday.
Thank you, honey.
- [Laura sighs]
- [Felix whistles]
What are you... [sighs]
I'm taking you out.
You can't not celebrate your birthday.
I don't have a babysitter.
Musto. He's got four kids.
They're all still alive.
Yeah, I'm sure he's great and everything,
but you can't just show up here
and expect me to...
- [sighs]
- I'm not taking
"you just can't show up here
and expect me to" for an answer.
Get dressed.
Okay, I'll... I'll call Lucy,
the girl from downstairs,
and I'll see if she's available,
but it's really, really short notice.
So don't get excited.
[line ringing]
- Lucy, hi.
- [Felix] Hi, Lucy!
Hi. Shh. That's my dad.
[chuckles] My dad's here.
- Mmm.
- Yeah, um...
Are you free by any chance to come over?
I just have this last-minute thing.
I won't be too late.
Yeah. Oh, that'd be great.
- Thank you so much. Okay.
- Mmm.
Thank you.
Hi, Musto.
[Musto] Hi, Laura.
[Felix whistling]
[Felix] You look very lovely.
[Laura] Thank you.
[Felix] Musto, take us to 21.
- Twenty-one it is.
- [Felix] Thanks.
So, did Dean take his trip?
Did he get you a nice present?
He did, actually.
No. He got me a nice present.
When are you gonna drop it about Dean?
No little red box?
[sighs] What are you implying?
I had him followed.
Do you know where
he came from the other night?
What? No. Where?
Fifty-second and 5th.
It's Cartier.
You didn't get any present from there?
At least we know he has taste.
Now, what was he doing there?
Did you ever check his phone?
Yes. There weren't any texts.
Well, that's really suspicious.
If you're working with someone,
you're in close contact. Unless...
He erased 'em.
That bastard.
When did this acting strange start?
He's just been distracted
since he... started this company
and started working with Fiona.
- Is Fiona Miss Toiletries?
- [sighs]
The tall business associate, yeah.
[Felix] I mean, how he could do
this to you... I could strangle him.
Here's the Plaza.
This is the place to have an affair.
It has the most exits.
[Musto] Exits on three streets.
Can any man be monogamous?
Monogamy and marriage
are based on the concept of property.
I've been married for 20 years.
[Felix] Women, you can't live with 'em,
you can't live without 'em.
That doesn't mean
you have to live with 'em.
Bogart's table.
Where he proposed to Bacall.
Happy birthday, kiddo.
Thank you.
[Felix chuckles]
Your watch. Oh, I love this.
You used to like to wear that.
I think it might fit you
a little better now.
- [Laura] I've always loved this watch.
- Mmm.
I bought that for myself
after my first big sale.
A de Kooning woman.
I love it. Thank you.
I remember the first moment, the moment,
when I first recognized you as a person.
We were in the country.
You were about nine months old,
and you were sitting on the ground,
and I picked you up, and your diaper
was sopping wet with mud and water,
and we looked at each other
and just started laughing. And...
There you were.
I saw who you were.
And here we are.
What next?
I think we should follow him.
- What?
- Yeah.
I think we should keep an eye on him.
See what he's up to.
No, I-I can't do that.
I think you better see him in action.
Well... they have a work dinner on Friday.
- Great.
- [sighs]
I'll change a car.
We'll-we'll tail him.
Can you just act a little
less excited about this?
Because this is my life,
and it might be falling apart.
We gotta get you out of this limbo.
We gotta ease your troubled mind.
Hey, Greg.
Could we bring the little girl
a belly buster, please?
I'm not worried about you, kiddo.
You've got brains, beauty and character,
which is the most important thing
a person can have.
Do you know a woman is at her most
beautiful between the ages of 35 and 39?
Great, so I have many months left.
Women are like flowers.
They're all beautiful at any age.
Even dried flowers. You know...
I don't know why women
get plastic surgery.
- Because of men like you.
- Mm-mm. I prefer the factory original.
Yeah, and every other make and model.
Thank you.
I'm gonna take that as a compliment.
- [chuckles]
- Are there two?
[chuckles] Scared me.
You know, I think everyone
has a right to their own privacy.
But if he's doing something dishonorable,
you need to know
and find out on your own terms,
so you can be prepared for anything.
I don't think there's anything at all.
It may not be anything.
We'll find out on Friday.
I'll pick you up, and we'll have some fun.
[both laughing]
And that way I'm, like,
I'm gonna take the risk.
- I'm gonna introduce him to Milo.
- Yeah.
It's just, like, people to people meeting.
Like, why does it have to be like,
oh, this guy that I'm sleeping with...
- Meets my son.
- [Maya] Daddy!
- [Dean] Hey! Come here.
- You know what I mean?
- Mom.
- I'm so sorry.
- Is that crazy?
- I'm so sorry.
- Mom!
- Hi!
[Maya] Hi, Dad!
- Mwah! How's my big girl?
- [Theo] Daddy!
- Hey, muffin! How's my baby?
- [Laura] Hey.
- Hi, baby. How you doing?
- Good.
How's the birthday girl?
How was the day?
- Oh, you know.
- Yeah?
My dad. [chuckles]
- Lots of theories and stories.
- [chuckles] Okay.
So, what do you say
we go around the corner
and we can celebrate properly?
Yeah, that sounds nice.
- Okay, good.
- I'll call a sitter.
All right.
How was your trip?
- [Dean kisses]
- [Theo giggles]
- How was your trip?
- Oh, the trip?
- Yeah.
- Great. Very productive.
- Yeah?
- Yep. Found an office,
had some great meetings.
Oh, we found this really fun karaoke bar.
[laughs] We had so much fun.
Yeah, it's really cool.
They have these 3D-printed homes
that they can put up for, like,
a few thousand dollars,
- and they can do it in, like, a day.
- Mmm.
It's really great.
Like, if there's a disaster or something,
you can just rebuild an entire community.
Wow. That-that's really cool.
- Technology, man. It's crazy.
- Yeah.
How's the thing?
Yeah, I don't know.
I'm so used to writing at night.
So, sitting at my desk during the day,
it just feels, like, creatively stifling.
You just have to start.
[phone buzzing]
Oh. Sorry, I just gotta
handle this thing for work.
Make sure this text went through.
We just landed another account.
It's crazy.
You know, I'm-I'm just wondering,
should we enroll Theo
in preschool this year?
Because, you know, she's on the cusp,
and I don't wanna wait too long,
and the deadline's soon.
What do you think?
Whatever. I mean, I trust you.
Do you wanna go? It's loud.
Yeah. Yeah.
Excuse me.
Yeah, let's get outta here.
The wine was good.
[Dean] Dinner was good.
- I'm sorry. Di-did you want a cake?
- No.
I thought you hate when
they do that in restaurants.
- No, it's fine. It's fine.
- So I'm just...
I didn't wanna embarrass you,
so I didn't get it.
No, no, no. I-it's fine.
- If you want cake, it's really simple.
- I don't.
- I'm gonna get you a cake. Excuse me!
- No, Dean. I don't want one.
[phone buzzes]
[Laura laughs]
Okay, you have to go to sleep, okay?
- [Theo giggles]
- Good night.
- I love you.
- Good night. I love you.
- Please go to sleep.
- Okay.
- Yes? Yes? You go to sleep. Go to sleep.
- [Theo giggles]
- Okay.
- Love you.
[Theo giggles]
- [sighs] Thank you so much.
- You're welcome.
I'll just be a few hours.
- Okay. Okay, sounds good.
- It's just a dinner thing. Okay.
Thank you so much. Thanks.
This is your idea of incognito?
[Felix] They'll never see us coming.
We have supplies too.
Hop in, cutie.
- Let's make a night of it.
- [sighs]
[engine starts]
[engine backfires]
- [Felix] Where are we going?
- Soho House.
- [Felix] Why is he at Soho House?
- I don't know.
[Felix] So many great clubs
in New York, architecturally.
Knickerbocker. The readings alone
at the Knickerbocker, please.
[Felix] Okay, we beat 'em.
[Felix whistling]
- [continues blowing]
- [continues whistling]
My guy at Claridge's got back to me.
He said that Dean went to J Sheekey's,
where he had reserved a four-top...
Which is a good cover.
Or maybe they just went with clients.
- [Felix] That's a possibility too.
- [Fiona] I think there's a reservation.
There they are.
- [Dean chuckles]
- [Felix] Is it the one with all the legs?
- No, I can see them from here.
- [Dean] There you go.
- [Fiona] Thanks. Chivalry is not dead.
- [Laura] Yeah, that's Fiona.
Did I ever tell you about
- the Rockette that I dated?
- [sighs]
[Italian pop song playing]
You know...
The Russians fed the cosmonauts beluga.
High protein.
Their waste was nothing but a...
slight touch of ash.
- Really?
- Mmm.
We can call this caviar, because...
there's no more beluga.
But this is American-made,
and it's pretty good.
Can a man ever be satisfied
with one woman?
Come on. That's hardwiring.
Keeping the species alive.
I mean, the woman passes through
an emotional filter.
Man doesn't pass through
the emotional part.
It goes directly from the eyes to the ass.
And it's just that simple?
Okay, hardwire, so then how does a woman
keep her desirability to a man?
A woman that knows that she is.
A woman that is confident
in her effect on you, that's sexy.
The Corsican...
- wanted me to pull her hair... hard.
- [groans]
And that just wasn't me.
The Corsican?
- [phone rings]
- My God. It's Dean.
- Okay. Just...
- What do I do? What do I do?
Take it, but be cool. Breathe.
- Uh...
- Cool.
No, um, everything's...
Everything's fine.
I'm-I'm just about to go to sleep.
[siren wailing]
Oh... Uh, yeah. Yeah.
No, that's fine.
After midnight? Yeah, no problem.
That was pretty good for your first time.
[Felix] Code red.
He's cutting her out of the herd.
"Oh, golly goodness,
I don't think my long legs
will fit in that cab with all of them."
[Fiona laughs]
[Fiona speaking indistinct]
- [Dean] Good team.
- [Fiona] Are you coming?
Um, okay. Scoot over.
[Laura] I can't believe this.
All right. Let's get going.
- Hang on to those eggs. Here we go.
- [engine starts, backfires]
[Laura] Oh, my God. What are you doing?
[Felix] They're trying to lose us.
It's not gonna happen.
- We've got too much horsepower!
- No!
- You're driving crazy!
- [vehicles honking]
[woman] Screw you, asshole!
- Now, that wasn't nice. Thank you!
- Don't!
- [man] Jerk!
- Yeah, Jersey!
Oh, God. Why are you driving like this?
'Cause they're driving
like this is why. Hang on.
Coming through!
- Uh-oh.
- Oh!
- You're...
- [stammers] Come on. Not now. Not now.
- Oh, my God.
- Hey. Come on, girl.
- Come on. Come on.
- [sighs]
Come on, darling.
There you go. Careful.
- Brace yourself.
- Oh, Jesus. Dad.
[Felix] Oh, nice. Nice.
[Laura] Oh, my God.
[Felix] You are all in my way!
- [Laura] I'm gonna be sick.
- [Felix] Lucky it's a convertible.
[engine backfiring]
- [Laura] Oh! Oh.
- Come on. There you go. There you go.
They're turning! Hang on!
[tires screeching]
[Laura] Are you trying to kill us?
[Felix] He ran a red! And so did we!
[siren wailing]
- Oops. We're gonna meet people.
- Oh, no.
We're gonna make new friends, I'm afraid.
- [officer on PA] Sir, please pull over.
- Nothing to worry about.
There you go.
Your license and registration, please.
And I'm gonna need you
to turn the engine off.
- I'm afraid I can't do that.
- [engine revs]
Sir, turn the engine off.
Listen. Here's the deal.
I'm stuck down here in second.
The starter's overheating.
If I turn it off, I'm gonna lose it,
- and that'll be that.
- Sir. Turn it off.
Okay. All right. Let's say goodbye to it,
'cause it's not gonna come back.
That's fine.
- [engine stops]
- Hear that?
Sir, is that alcohol?
Hell... That's '98 Krug in the car,
but it's not open.
We've-we've yet to pop it.
Okay. Sir, I'm gonna have to ask you
to step out of the car.
Your lady friend can stay seated.
This is like three times this week.
You're very funny.
I'm charmed that you said that though.
I mean, it's kinda flattering.
But she's not exactly my lady friend.
This is my daughter. Laura.
Who's your guy over here?
That's Chris.
Chris, my daughter Laura.
How you doing?
Laura. This is, uh, Officer...
Are you Tommy O'Callaghan's kid?
Is Tommy your pop?
Tom, yes, that's my dad.
Well, we go way back.
I'm gonna call him.
No, no, no.
Sir, please put the phone away.
- It's late. It's late.
- Yeah, it's late.
I don't think my mom would appreciate
a phone call right now.
That's right.
She would brain him, not me.
- [laughs]
- Yeah.
Well, I know your pop.
That was a guy.
I went to Sergeant O'Callaghan, Timmy,
I went to his beefsteak
for his retirement,
and I don't know how we got home,
to be honest with you.
- [laughs]
- That's my grandfather.
That's right. That is correct.
Gosh, I don't know why
I didn't make you right away.
You are a ringer. Dead ringer.
- Thank you.
- The eyes. Oh, my God.
[both laugh]
So, you still going upstate?
Going to the Adirondacks, what?
We... Well, when we can.
- Yeah?
- Um...
And you got kids of your own?
- We're trying. Yeah.
- Attaboy. Attaboy.
It's the trying that's so much fun,
isn't it?
Yeah, isn't it? [laughs]
Well, it's good to see you, man.
Really good to see you.
Oh, it's nice to meet you, sir.
Good to meet you.
And actually, we could just
get you on your way,
if you could be a little more careful
from now on, please.
Oh, yeah, yeah. No, I was being careful,
that's why I ran the light,
'cause I didn't wanna get stuck
in the intersection.
[officer chuckles]
That's all right.
[Felix] Hey, I need a little manpower.
We need some beef. You only gotta
get it going about ten miles an hour.
- Okay.
- It'll pop pretty easily in second.
We're just gonna give him a push.
I'll just pop it. [grunts]
Thanks. Let me get the keys in.
- You in?
- Yeah, I'm in. Thanks.
It must be very nice to be you.
I wouldn't have it any other way.
All right. On your mark. Get set. Go.
[officers panting]
[engine starts]
[Felix] New York's finest!
Thanks, fellas! Whoo-hoo!
[Felix whistling]
- [slow piano music]
- [indistinct chatter]
Wow, you look great.
You look better.
Yeah? Well, I'm with my daughter.
I, uh, may be ready to sell the Hockney.
- [Felix] Oh, you know how to get to me.
- [chuckles]
[woman] You know where to call me.
I keep funny hours.
[chuckles] I remember.
- It's a client.
- Mmm-hmm.
[Laura sighs]
I think I'm going deaf.
- Really?
- [clears throat]
I can hear everything fine,
except women's voices.
You can't go deaf just to women.
It's the pitch.
We're making some good progress.
This is pathetic.
We just need to get
some more information.
Maybe he's just
not interested in me anymore.
[slow song plays]
You're gonna be all right, shorty.
[song continues playing]
Turns out he was married.
- I'm so sorry.
- [sniffs] Mmm.
I know.
[clears throat]
It's such a strange bummer.
[chuckles] And, um...
And-and you know what?
Like, I have things to do.
You know what I mean? I don't really
have time for other people's baggage.
I'm sort of like, "Okay."
Like, get on down the road
if that's, like...
Sort of what you're gonna be like,
- especially in our community.
- Sure. Sure.
Which, I think, is like...
Okay, I mean, he's basically
walking around with, like,
a mask on, whereas I'm, like, so... open.
- Yeah.
- I'm just, like, bare. Like, my...
I'm... naked. [chuckles]
And I was...
You know, I was there with him, naked.
You would think, like,
two people naked together,
like, one of them might say,
"Oh, by the way, like,
- I have a wife and a family..."
- Mmm-hmm.
"...and we own a home together, and we,
like, all sleep in the same house...
- [phone buzzing]
- "...and use the same bathrooms,
and we have a family, and you're not in it
because you're not even my girlfriend.
Because I have a wife."
Okay, what's so important?
Well, it's just a start.
[Laura] Oh, my God.
- This is nothing. [scoffs]
- Laura.
My God. What if...
What we find out is that Dean's
just busy and I'm in a rut?
That's it.
God, I regret telling you anything.
I talked to my man at Bones.
Bo... No, enough with
the spy scenarios, okay?
Did you really call me in here to show me
pictures of my husband eating a sandwich?
There's more.
We put a hot watch on him.
What's a hot watch?
They track his credit cards
and his whereabouts.
Okay, and?
May be nothing, but...
He booked a trip to Manzanillo.
You are so full of it.
He would tell me
if he was going to Mexico.
We need to gather and evaluate.
I have to get going.
Wait, I can drop you.
Quick stop.
- No, I...
- Mrs. Morris at the Sherry.
- It's her 90th.
- I have to get home.
Fast elevators, and she's got a Twombly.
- [sighs]
- [piano playing]
She did the Venice Biennale.
With Storm King,
she's doing something so beautiful.
It's... It's beyond description.
It's a crescent. It's called Fallen Sky.
Made of stainless steel,
and you have the reflection.
And at Storm King, you know,
all these grotesque big things...
- [Felix] Mmm-hmm.
- Are you Felix's daughter?
Yes. I'm Laura.
You live in the city?
I do.
Are you married?
Yes, I am.
How is it?
Honestly, I'm not sure right now.
And that was very entertaining.
She makes rocks, huge ones, small ones,
but they're as light as a feather.
You know what I think?
Marriage is like a bank account.
You make deposits
for the first 20 or 30 years,
and then, after that,
you have all this interest built up,
and you can start making withdrawals.
And... I don't forget costumes.
So nice to meet you.
Same here.
- I'm dying for that Twombly.
- Mmm.
She looks pretty healthy to me.
She might make it to 100.
All right.
Don't get my blood pressure up, shorty.
All right, I wanna
show you something special.
But you have to walk backwards
so no one knows we're leaving.
[Laura whispering]
Where are we going?
Hey! Where are we...
[Felix] That's something, isn't it?
[Laura] Beautiful.
I remember the first time
I saw them at the Tuileries.
The next day, your mom and I
drove out to the gardens at Giverny.
[somber music plays]
[Laura sighs]
- Hey.
- Hey.
How's writing going?
Ugh, I wish I had something
exciting to report.
I just... I'm so... stuck.
I keep telling you...
You have to make more time for yourself.
Yeah, right. Like... take a trip.
- Yeah.
- By myself. [laughs]
Oh, I forgot to tell you.
I got invited to a conference
down in Mexico.
It's kinda last minute,
but it's a really big deal.
[stutters] Who... Who's going?
Just the team, you know.
Me, John, Fifi, Rog...
Yeah. Fifi.
[both sigh]
All right. I'm going to bed.
Love you.
Your Bones man was right.
They're headed to Mexico.
[Felix] I told you.
All right, pack your bags. Call a sitter.
I'll arrange everything else.
Are you crazy? I'm not gonna leave my kids
for a few days with a babysitter.
- Call your mother.
- [scoffs]
We're not just gonna hop...
You know what?
I'm just gonna talk to him.
I'm just gonna talk to him.
I don't advise that.
Look, you need
to get ahead of this thing.
- [sighs]
- It's only a few hours away.
My friend's condo,
at the resort next door, is available.
Got its own private entrance.
And you deserve a little vacation.
No way.
Pack light.
[mariachi music]
- [Laura sighs]
- [Felix] I got a map of the properties
- from my travel agent.
- Who has a travel agent anymore?
Their group is staying
at this place right over here.
What do you say
we meet at the bar in, say, 45?
[waves crashing]
[guitar playing]
Mexicali Rose
Stop crying
I'll come back to you
Some sunny day
You know every night
That I'll be pining
Every hour of the year
that I'm away
Dry those big brown eyes
And smile, dear
Banish all those tears
and please don't sigh
Kiss me once again
And hold me
Mexicali Rose
- Gabi, Laura. Laura, Gabi.
- Hi.
- My yoga instructor.
- Hi.
- Charro.
- [Laura] Hi.
- Alejandro. Juan.
- [all] Hi.
This fella I didn't meet.
Do you really have to make
such a big entrance everywhere you go?
That was an exit.
But if I do go missing,
check the yoga studio.
Just don't break anything.
- Hi.
- Hey.
Carla. [speaking Spanish]
- Carla. This is her place.
- Welcome.
It's so nice.
Enjoy it.
- And I'll think about the Hockney.
- Thank you.
Wait. Is that why we're here?
Because you're making a deal?
No. We're here 'cause we're here.
She just might be someone
who could be interested in
a very expensive piece of art.
[Laura sighs]
I can't believe I'm here.
It's beautiful. Isn't it?
It is.
Do you know there's a cult up in Canada
where women kidnap innocent men,
and if they try to escape
or resist in any way,
the women placate them with sex?
It sounds like your fantasy.
It's not unlike the bonobos.
- You know who they are.
- The monkeys?
Only mammals where the females
dominate the males.
Why is it that when a woman has an affair,
it's so wonderful that she found someone?
But if a man has an affair,
he's banging his secretary?
Why did you do it?
When your mom and I were first together,
she was so amazing.
I mean, she shone all her light on me.
But when you guys came along,
all that light went to you two.
And when someone looked
at me again like that...
You know, I wanted that glow again.
You're such a baby.
We all just want to be loved.
It's exhausting.
It's exhausting to try to love you enough.
Your mother had all these things
she wanted to do all of a sudden.
And all her friends.
And she had you kids.
You know, when Holly came along
and was so crazy about me,
I wasn't used to it.
So that's all it took?
That was the appeal?
That she just looked at you
with such adoration? [scoffs]
Yeah, and your mom
didn't wanna travel with me anymore.
I needed to travel.
She wouldn't go.
- She suggested I take Holly.
- [sighs]
Holly just started at the gallery.
Did you know that she died this year?
- No.
- She died.
I never thought I'd outlive her.
She was only...
I don't really remember her.
She was funny...
And very smart...
And a terrifically talented painter.
I never got to say goodbye to her.
After everything you put us through,
what it did to Mom,
and then you didn't even stay with Holly.
Was it worth it?
It was heartbreaking...
for everyone.
[waves crashing]
[Laura sighs]
Do you know where we are?
[Felix] All right.
We're gonna cut between these two.
Uh-oh. Come here.
Move it. Move it. Move it.
Dig, dig.
- Get down. Get down. Get down.
- Okay, okay! All right!
No. Too late.
Stand up. Stand up. Stand up.
- Put your arms around me.
- What? Ew.
- Mmm-hmm.
- Yuck.
That is truly a new low.
Hey, you're welcome.
It was effective.
This is wartime.
[Laura] Where are we going?
Mr. Wonderful's room
is right over there.
[sighs] You sure?
If you can hold some of this...
You can hold these.
Don't crush those.
- You okay?
- Yeah. Yeah.
Can you hold these, please?
[Laura grunts] Where now?
[Felix panting]
- [Laura] Are you okay?
- I'm doing great. I'm on fire.
[Laura] Let's go.
[Felix] I never got the point
of infinity pools.
Where the hell is the edge?
You don't even know.
The damn thing makes me afraid
that I'm gonna fall off
into some canyon or something.
[Laura] Just... Shh.
- [Felix] Wait a second.
- What? What do you see?
There's a woman in the room.
What? You sure?
[Felix] I'm sure.
- Hey. Where you going?
- I can't believe this.
[Felix] Wait. Wait!
- [Laura] I'm ending this shit right now.
- Oh, wait. Don't do that.
- [Laura] Where is he?
- Wait up.
Wait up. Wait up.
[Fiona laughing]
Just a second.
This is a bad idea.
This is your bad idea.
[phone ringing]
And that's bad too. Silence that.
- You silence it. It's not mine.
- Shut it up.
- It's not mine. It's not my ring.
- It's not-
It's my ring, but you...
You have my... You have my phone.
Where's my phone? Where is it?
- Grabbing isn't helping.
- Where is it?
Where's my phone? Ugh.
Give it to me. Come on! Give it...
- No, Dad.
- It's for you.
It's for you. I wanna talk to this guy.
[Fiona laughing]
- [laughs] Oh, my God! What...
- [phone continues ringing]
Fiona? What...
[ringing continues]
Do you need to get that?
[chuckles] One... second.
- Hey.
- [Dean] Hey. What's up?
- Uh...
- How you doing, baby? Guess what?
- Uh...
- I'm coming home.
I got done early,
so I caught a flight home.
- I'm on my way.
- What? When?
I should be there in a half hour.
- So, you wanna order some Chinese?
- [sighs]
- Maybe crack a bottle of wine?
- Uh...
Well, I-I'm not home.
My-my mom is with them.
- So, uh...
- Where are you?
Well, I can't wait to see you.
- I love you. See you soon. [kisses]
- I'll call you later.
- [call ends]
- Were you trying to surprise Dean?
Sort of, yeah.
Oh, that's so romantic. Oh.
[chuckles nervously]
- Hi.
- Hi.
[Fiona] Oh, gosh.
Um... Is-is he with you?
Yes. That-that's my dad.
Come say hi, Dad. [chuckles]
[Fiona] Hi.
Felix Keane.
Fiona Saunders. Nice to meet you.
And this is my friend Mandy.
- Hi.
- Hi.
So, Dean gave us his room.
It's so nice, the ocean view, and just...
Do you wanna come in and have a drink?
- One drink.
- That's very nice, but no. No.
We're-we're... Thank you.
Thank you. No, we're gonna go.
- [Fiona] Okay.
- Good to see you.
Bye. [laughs]
- [indistinct chatter]
- [woman] Oh.
[thunder rumbling]
[Felix] You can slow down.
There's a storm coming.
I know. I just gotta get outta here.
How could you bring me here?
Hey. I'm on your side.
- I was such an idiot...
- [electricity crackling]
- ...to let you convince me to come here.
- [thunder rumbling]
You blew your own marriage,
and now you're gonna mess up mine?
Can you let anybody be happy?
You are so selfish.
You can say it to my face now.
I will.
I am sick of you taking over everything,
making it all about you
and what you want all the time.
What you dragged us all through.
You pushed Mom away.
You can't go deaf to women's voices.
You know that, right?
You have daughters and granddaughters,
so you better start figuring out
how to hear them.
You pushed Mom away.
You wanna push us away too?
It's shocking that as your daughter,
I'm capable of having any kind
of relationship at all
with anybody, with anyone respectful.
You weren't even discreet.
You couldn't even just
be discreet out of respect for Mom?
And me?
Do you know what it's like
to have to keep all of your secrets?
- Stupid theories.
- [luggage clatters]
You are not an animal
with no self-control.
You can control your own behavior.
And can you be around a woman
without hitting on her?
Because it's starting to get pathetic.
What happened to you?
You used to be fun.
Maybe something changed.
Just... Can you please check? Any flight.
Tomorrow morning?
[woman] I'm sorry, ma'am.
Those flights have been canceled.
You can try going on standby.
[bird calling]
[inhales, exhales]
[slow music plays]
[man over PA speaking Spanish]
Ladies and gentlemen,
please check updated flight information
because there are
multiple delays and cancellations.
Thank you.
- [Maya] Mommy!
- [Theo] Mama!
[Laura] Hi!
- You made it.
- Thanks, Mom.
- Come on, girls. No, no. Let's go to bed.
- [Dean sighs]
[Theo] I don't wanna go to bed.
Can we talk, outside?
[door opens]
All right.
What are you thinking?
What was that? Hmm?
I... My dad...
You know, one of his crazy ideas. He...
Thought it was a good idea
to follow you to Mexico...
And if something was going on,
I could... I could get ahead of it.
- Why didn't you just ask me?
- I don't... I don't know.
I know I... I should have. I should have.
- Yeah.
- I'm sorry.
I just, um...
I'm just not myself right now, and...
I can't write, and I just feel like
you're not that into me.
- Babe...
- And... I feel so boring.
Hey. You are not boring.
Okay. Maybe a little bit.
[both chuckle]
I don't wanna be with anybody else.
But it seems like you
were everywhere else except with me.
I was working.
All right. You know what? I'm sorry.
I'm sorry. I'm sorry if I did anything
to make you feel that way.
And-and I'm sorry
I haven't been around more.
I'm just trying to make
this company successful.
I'm trying to impress you.
- Impress me?
- I just...
You don't have to impress me.
I just wanna be enough for you.
[sighs] You do?
- Enough for them.
- You are.
Oh, I'm so...
I'm so sorry. I...
I'm sorry.
I'm so stupid. It was stupid.
Stupid as hell.
- I love you.
- I love you.
So much.
Let's go home.
I can't believe you went
all the way to Mexico.
- [both chuckle]
- [Laura] Trust me, it was not a vacation.
- [Dean] You're such a stalker.
- [both chuckle]
[Theo babbles]
- [blows raspberry]
- [Theo giggles]
[Theo] Do you want some pancakes?
[Dean] No.
[doorbell buzzes]
[Dean] Let me sleep.
[Felix whistling]
[both whistling]
You got it.
Very nice. You're great.
Well, we got to the bottom of things. Huh?
And I may have made a few mistakes.
Next time just ask me
if you wanna spend some time together.
- Okay, I do. How about this?
- [chuckles]
The QE2 leaves at 5:00.
You could still make it.
I have the Princess Margaret suite.
A little bit, uh, floral, but very nice.
All-you-can-eat, all-you-can-drink,
and it's a known fact that you can drink
a lot more on a ship in the open ocean.
We could just get aboard,
see how much we could handle
without falling overboard.
Sounds fun, but I can't.
You have your own adventure.
I'll see you soon, kiddo.
Bye, Dad.
So, how's the writing going?
How many pages you do today?
I am on page 64.
- Nice.
- Mmm-hmm.
I just don't really know
where to go next.
Ah, you'll get through it.
At least we know you could
write a really good detective story.
- Or not so good.
- [both laughing]
I can't believe you.
I got you a little something.
It's the rest of your birthday present.
Hope you like it.
[indistinct chatter]
Sorry, I didn't realize
how long it takes to engrave.
It's beautiful.
Like you.
It looks really nice on your wrist.
- Looks great.
- Hmm. Love it.
Thank you.
Happy birthday, my love.
Thank you.
