1 WAIT, OK.

YOU'RE NOT MAD AT ADAM, AND HE JUST UP AND TOOK OFF? YOU'RE NOT MAD THAT HE LEFT THE COUNTRY? I MEAN, AFTER SAYING-- SAYING NOTHING? NO, NO.
IF HE WANTS TO BLOW OFF STEAM FOR A WEEK, THAT'S FINE.
I MEAN, IF HE THINKS HE'S GONNA GET HAPPY AT SOME MEXICAN ARTIST'S COLONY, THEN I SUPPORT THAT.
I'M JUST-- I'M MAD 'CAUSE HE LEF AFTER SAYING SO MUCH.
OK, I DON' UNDERSTAND THIS.
WELL, SEE, WE GO IN THIS BIG FIGHT, AND HE KEPT SAYING ALL THESE THINGS THAT CAME WAY OU OF LEFT FIELD, AND BEFORE I COULD FIGURE OU HOW I WANTED TO RESPOND, HE WAS GONE.
OUT OF LEFT FIELD? LIKE WHAT? WELL, LIKE-- HERE, THANK YOU.
LIKE I'M NO LIVING MY LIFE LIKE I SHOULD, OR--OR WRITING TO MY POTENTIAL OR SOMETHING, 'CAUSE I KEEP DOING THINGS FOR OTHER PEOPLE INSTEAD OF MYSELF.
YEAH, BUT, I MEAN, WHAT IS THIS BASED ON, REALLY? WELL, HE THINKS I DROPPED MY BOOK BECAUSE ONE OR 2 PEOPLE REJECTED IT, YOU KNOW, AND THEN IF I REALLY BELIEVED IN IT, THEN I WOULDN'T CARE WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK, AND I WOULD KEEP SUBMITTING IT.
HUH.
I--I DIDN'T KNOW YOU DROPPED IT.
NO, I--I DIDN'T.
I'M JUS NOT DONE WITH IT YET.
IT'S GOT PROBLEMS.
REALLY? LIKE WHAT? I DON'T KNOW, CLAUD.
IT'S JUS NOT WORKING SOMEHOW.
I MEAN, PEOPLE READ IT, AND THEY DON' QUITE GET IT.
WELL, THEY DON'T, 'CAUSE OTHERWISE, THEY WOULD PUBLISH IT, RIGHT? I MEAN, HOW ELSE AM I SUPPOSED TO JUDGE IT? I DON'T KNOW, CLAUD.
DO YOU THINK HE'S RIGHT? I'M, LIKE, GETTING HUNG UP? JULIA, QUIET.
WHAT, CLAUDIA? COME OVER HERE.
OH, MY GOD.
DON'T LET HIM SEE YOU.
WHAT'S HE DOING HERE, CLAUD? I DON'T KNOW.
LET'S GO.
OK.
PLEASE, JUS GET IN THE CAR, AND LET'S GO.
EVERYBODY WANTS TO LIVE LIKE THEY WANNA LIVE AND EVERYBODY WANTS TO LOVE LIKE THEY WANNA LOVE AND EVERYBODY WANTS TO BE CLOSER TO FREE CLOSER TO FREE HEY.
HELLO.
THERE YOU ARE.
HI.
I'VE BEEN TRYING TO CALL YOU ALL DAY.
I TRIED TO CALL YOU AT HOME, PAGE YOU.
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? "PRINCIPAL OF ECONOMICS, PERSPECTIVES ON CYBERCOMMERCE.
" HOW MANY EXTENSION COURSES ARE YOU ACTUALLY TAKING, BAILEY? UM, JUST 3.
JUST 3? WELL, TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH, THESE COURSES, THEY'RE NO THAT CHALLENGING.
WHICH IS WHY I'VE BEEN CALLING YOU ALL DAY.
I'M THINKING OF GOING BACK TO REAL SCHOOL, FULL TIME.
WOW.
BAILEY.
YEAH, SO THAT-- THAT RAISES A QUESTION.
NOW, I KNOW YOU HAVEN'T DECIDED WHERE YOU WANT TO GO TO MED SCHOOL YET, BUT, SINCE STANFORD'S YOUR FIRST CHOICE, AND IT'S SO CLOSE TO HOME-- BAILEY.
NOT--NOT TO PU ANY PRESSURE ON YOU AT ALL, BUT I WAS THINKING THAT I MIGHT APPLY FOR UNDERGRAD THERE.
IT'S A MONSTER LONG SHOT, I KNOW.
IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE I'M GONNA GO TO STANFORD.
NOT IN THE NEAR FUTURE, AT LEAST.
REALLY? BUT YOU SAID-- YOU SAID THAT'S WHO OFFERED THAT FELLOWSHIP.
YOU ASKED WHERE I'VE BEEN TODAY.
I'VE BEEN WITH MY LAWYER.
YOUR LAWYER.
IT SEEMS THA THE ONE THING THAT YOU CAN'T DO ON A STUDENT VISA IS WORK FULL TIME, AND THAT HAPPENS TO BE THE WAY THAT I PAY MY RENT.
SO? SO MY STUDENT VISA'S BEEN REVOKED.
THEY SAY THAT I CAN STAY UNTIL AFTER THE EXAMS, BUT AFTER THAT, I'M GONE.
GONE? GONE, YOU MEAN, BACK TO ENGLAND? YEP.
WHEN? A FEW WEEKS.
BUT, THAT'S-- NO.
NO--NO--NO-- NO--NO.
WE'LL-- WE HAVE TO CALL SOMEBODY.
WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING.
I'VE BEEN WITH MY LAWYER ALL DAY, AND HE'S DOING EVERYTHING POSSIBLE, ALL RIGHT? NO, THIS IS RIDICULOUS.
THEY CAN' KICK ME OUT.
WE BOTH KNOW THAT, RIGHT? YEAH.
SO, I HAVE TO BELIEVE THIS IS GONNA WORK.
I HAVE TO BELIEVE IT.
(ALARM RINGS) OH, I THINK YOU WAN TO WAKE UP.
LOOK.
WHAT'S THIS? SPINACH OMELETTE, BRIOCHE, SWEET CREAM BUTTER, RASPBERRY PRESERVES, AND COFFEE.
WOW.
THIS IS WHY? I THINK YOU KNOW.
THIS IS A VERY SPECIAL DAY.
IT IS? MM-MMM.
THINK BACK.
WHAT HAPPENED A YEAR AGO TODAY? UM CAN YOU GIVE ME A HINT? YOU DON'T KNOW? YOU HAVE NO IDEA? NO, I DO, I DO.
I JUST-- I JUST NEED A HINT.
BOY, SO MUCH FOR ROMANCE.
WELL, KIRSTEN, WAIT A MINUTE.
WAIT.
NO, IT'S NO BIG DEAL.
IT'S JUST, A YEAR AGO TODAY WE GOT BACK TOGETHER, THAT'S ALL.
KIRSTEN, HOLD ON.
HOLD ON.
I'M SORRY.
IF I DIDN'T HAVE ALL THIS FACTORY STUFF AND I'D HAD A DECENT NIGHT'S SLEEP IN THE LAST MONTH, I'D HAVE REMEMBERED.
I KNOW IT'S NO AN OFFICIAL ANNIVERSARY OR ANYTHING, BUT WE'VE JUST BEEN SO BUSY, AND I JUST THOUGH IT WAS A GOOD EXCUSE FOR US TO HAVE SOME FUN TOGETHER.
OK, I'LL TELL YOU WHAT.
HOW ABOUT IF I BLOW OFF MY CONTRACTOR'S MEETING TONIGHT, AND WE'LL CELEBRATE THEN? THAT'S OK.
YOU DON' HAVE TO DO THAT.
NO--NO--NO, I WANT TO.
YOU'RE MY WIFE, AND I LOVE YOU.
SO, ARE WE OK? THEN, CAN I HAVE MY BREAKFAST BACK? SO, I THOUGH THAT ROSS WOULD BE A GOOD PERSON FOR YOU TO TALK TO, 'CAUSE HE'S BEEN THROUGH A LO OF WHAT YOU'RE GOING THROUGH WITH CHARLOTTE.
I THOUGHT YOU SAID TESS WAS ADOPTED.
SHE WAS, BUT THE CUSTODY ISSUES ARE SIMILAR, ESPECIALLY IF YOU'RE A SINGLE PARENT.
WHICH HE DEFINITELY IS.
ANYWAY, I HAVE A LAWYER WHOSE MAIN PRACTICE IS CUSTODY ISSUES FOR SINGLE GAY MEN, IF YOU'RE INTERESTED.
OK.
OH, YEAH, HE IS.
DEFINITELY.
OK, YOU REALLY NEED TO NOT BE SETTING ME UP WITH THE VIOLIN TEACHER.
WHAT? I'M NOT.
PLEASE.
"VICTOR'S SINGLE.
VICTOR'S INTERESTED.
" WHAT WAS THAT? I WAS TALKING ABOU YOU AND CHARLOTTE, NOT YOU AND ROSS.
HEY, NOW THAT YOU MENTION IT, WHY NOT? YOU SHOULD GO OUT, YOU'RE BOTH SINGLE.
YEAH, I GOT THAT.
YOU BOTH HAVE DAUGHTERS THE SAME AGE, ROSS IS A MUSICIAN, YOU LOVE MUSIC.
EVERYONE LOVES MUSIC.
DOGS AND CATS LOVE MUSIC.
YOU'RE THE ONE ALWAYS COMPLAINING ABOUT YOUR LOVE LIFE.
I AM NOT.
ALL RIGHT, WHATEVER.
BUT THA DOESN'T MEAN THAT I'M SUPPOSED TO FALL FOR THE ONLY OTHER GAY MAN THAT YOU HAPPEN TO KNOW IN SAN FRANCISCO.
WHY NOT? BECAUSE LOVE DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY, THAT'S WHY NOT.
IT DOESN' WORK THAT WAY IF YOU DON'T LET IT.
HONEY, LOVE DOESN'T CARE WHAT I DO.
LOVE JUST HAPPENS.
YOU CAN'T MAKE IT HAPPEN, OR SET IT UP, BECAUSE THE MINUTE YOU START DOING THAT, IT'S NOT LOVE ANYMORE.
IT'S WORK.
AND BESIDES, HE'S NOT MY TYPE.
WHY NOT? WHY NOT? VICTOR, HE'S MY BEST FRIEND.
HE'S SMART, HE'S SWEET.
EXACTLY.
HE'S SWEET.
HE'S SMART.
HE'S SMART AND SWEET, WHICH FOR ME, IT'S UGH-- IT'S TOO SWEET.
IT'S TOO SMART, YOU KNOW? OKSO, TELL ME, ANYTHING YET? YOU HEARD FROM YOUR LAWYER? YUP.
AND? IT'S NOT GOOD.
IS IT GOOD? IT'S NOT GREAT.
HE SAID HE'D APPEAL, BUT THEY DON' OFTEN OVERTURN THEIR DECISIONS, SOFOR NOW, I JUST HAVE TO SI TIGHT AND WAIT.
HOLLY, WAIT? WAIT FOR WHAT? TILL YOU'RE ON A PLANE BACK TO LONDON? TILL YOUR SLOT AT STANFORD'S BEEN GIVEN AWAY? WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO, PHONE PRESIDENT CLINTON, OR CHAIN MYSELF TO THE BRITISH EMBASSY? OK, LOOK I'VE DONE SOME RESEARCH INTO YOUR SITUATION HERE, OK? AND THERE ARE WAYS AROUND THIS THING.
NOT THAT IT'S ANYTHING WE WOULD DO IF WE WEREN' TOTALLY IN A JAM HERE.
I HAD A FEELING THIS WAS GONNA COME UP.
YEAH, BUT IF YOUR ONLY OPTION IS GOING BACK TO ENGLAND WE COULD DO IT.
I MEAN, WE COULD-- WE COULD MAKE THEM BUY THIS THING.
IT'S NOT THAT MUCH OF A STRETCH.
YEAH, WE COULD MAKE 'EM BUY IT, BUT DO WE REALLY WANT THIS? DO WE REALLY WANT THA KIND OF PRESSURE? WE HAVE JUST GO BACK TOGETHER, BAILEY.
WHAT KIND OF PRESSURE? WE'D JUST BE PRETENDING A LITTLE.
BUT IT'S A HELL OF A LOT TO PRETEND.
I MEAN, PEOPLE GE CAUGHT DOING THIS.
I COULD GET DEPORTED, AND YOU COULD GE SENT TO PRISON.
THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO GET CAUGHT DOING THIS KIND OF THING ARE PEOPLE WHO DON' ACTUALLY LOVE EACH OTHER.
ORYOU KNOW YOU SEE, YOU'RE ALREADY BEING PRESSURED INTO SAYING SOMETHING THAT YOU PROBABLY DON'T MEAN.
NO, THAT'S NOT THE POINT IS, IT'S BETTER THAN YOU HAVING TO LEAVE.
RIGHT? AND WE DON'T HAVE TO MAKE A BIG DEAL OU OF THIS THING AT ALL.
YOU JUST BRING SOME CLOTHES AND A TOOTHBRUSH AND KEEP 'EM AT MY PLACE.
OTHER THAN THAT, EVERYTHING ELSE STAYS THE SAME.
WE STILL HAVE OUR SEPARATE LIVES.
WE STILL ONLY SEE EACH OTHER WHEN WE WANT TO SEE EACH OTHER.
ALL OF THAT.
NO OBLIGATIONS, NO PROMISES WE'D JUST BE MARRIED IS ALL.
YOU HAVE THE MAIL? HELLO? EARTH TO JULIA.
MAIL? YOU HAVE THE MAIL? OH, GOD, I'M SORRY.
MY MIND WANDERED.
NED, HUH? I'M SORRY.
I SHOULDN' BE REMINDING YOU.
DON'T WORRY, CLAUD.
I'M REMINDING MYSELF.
EVERY CORNER I WALK AROUND, I'M EXPECTING TO SEE HIM.
I'M PRACTICALLY CHECKING OUT THE WINDOW BEFORE I LEAVE THE HOUSE.
YOU CAN'T LIVE LIKE THAT, JULIA.
YOU CAN'T DO THAT.
I KNOW.
MAYBE I DON'T HAVE TO.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN? WELL, MAGGIE GAVE ME HIS ADDRESS.
IF I REALLY WANTED TO SEE HIM, I COULD JUST GO.
YOU KNOW, FACE IT HEAD-ON.
YOU'D ACTUALLY JUST-- THIS MORNING, I ACTUALLY STARTED TOWARDS HIS PLACE, AND THEN I LOS MY NERVE.
WHOSE PLACE? OH, JUST, UM A FRIEND OF JULIA'S.
WHAT, LIKE A NEW BOYFRIEND OR SOMETHING? YOU DON'T HAVE TO HIDE THAT STUFF FROM ME.
WELL, ACTUALLY, IT'S NED.
WE SAW HIM A A STORE YESTERDAY.
HE'S LIVING A COUPLE OF BLOCKS FROM HERE.
WAITHERE? IT'S NOT A BIG DEAL.
GRIFFIN, I CALLED MAGGIE, AND HE'S TAKING A YEAR OFF, WORKING AT HIS DAD'S OFFICE, AND SEEING A PSYCHIATRIST.
HE'S NOT HERE TO COME AFTER ME.
YOU JUST SAID YOU WERE GOING OVER TO HIS PLACE.
YEAH, WELL, IT'S BETTER TO BUMP INTO HIM WHEN I'M READY AND NOT WHEN IT'S AN ACCIDENT.
JULIA, DON'T.
WHY NOT? YOU ACTUALLY HAVE TO ASK ME THAT?! GRIFFIN, HE'S NOT A MURDERER.
HE'S NOT GONNA DRAG ME OFF INTO SOME ALLEY.
THEN WHY ARE YOU SCARED TO SEE HIM? I'M NOT.
I'M NOT PHYSICALLY SCARED OF HIM.
I'M NOT SCARED HE'S GONNA HURT ME.
LISTEN TO YOU.
YOU'RE ALREADY MAKING EXCUSES FOR HIM.
YOU KNOW HIS M.
O.
IF YOU SEE HIM, HE'LL START PLAYING HEAD GAMES AGAIN.
NO, HE'S NOT GONNA-- DON'T SEE HIM.
PLEASE? PLEASE? WILL YOU PROMISE ME THAT? HEY! SORRY I'M LATE.
I HAD TO TALK ONE OF OUR HOTEL EXECUTIVES OUT OF A SO-CALLED DESIGN INNOVATION.
BUT, UH, I PUSHED OUR RESERVATION UP TO 8:00, IF THAT'S OK.
DO YOU LIKE IT? WOW.
WELL, IT MIGHT LOOK A LITTLE BIT BETTER WITH THESE.
OHH OH! YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO GET ME ROSES.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME? AFTER THIS MORNING, I ALMOST BOUGHT YOU A PONY.
OHSO THESE AREN' "HAPPY ANNIVERSARY" ROSES.
THESE ARE "DON'T BE MAD AT ME" ROSES.
(DOORBELL RINGS) HI! DAPHNE! HOW YOU DOIN'? WE DIDN'T EXPECT YOU UNTIL NEXT WEEK.
I KNOW.
I WANTED TO SURPRISE YOU.
LOOK WHO'S THERE! OH, MY GOD! LOOK HOW BIG YOU ARE! LOOK HOW BIG! HI, SWEETHEART! IT'S GOOD TO SEE YOU.
WE MISSED YOU.
I KNOW! WE MISSED YOU.
SO HOW LONG CAN YOU STAY? WELL, I DON'T KNOW.
KINDA, MAYBE, FOR GOOD.
(KNOCK KNOCK) JULIA! HI, NED.
UHDID-- DID YOU WANT TO COME IN? WELL, UM IT'S OK.
I'M--I'M NOT GONNA (CLEARS THROAT) ARE YOU THIRSTY? UM, HERE.
YOU WANT TO SIT DOWN? NO, I DON'T WAN TO STAY.
I GUESS I JUST, UH I GUESS I JUS WANTED TO SEE YOU.
OK.
SO IS THAT IT, YOU JUST WANTED TO STARE AT ME? I CALLED MAGGIE.
SHE TOLD ME WHAT YOU WERE DOING.
MAGGIE? HOW DID SHE MUST HAVE TALKED TO MY PARENTS.
MANI MEAN, I LEAVE SCHOOL TO START OVER, BUT YOU GUYS-- THIS STUFF FOLLOWS ME EVERYWHERE.
I WROTE A BOOK ABOUT US.
DID YOU KNOW THAT? WHAT? YOU DID WHAT? DID--DID YOU USE MY NAME? YES, I DID.
JULIA, WHY-- WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT? JUST TO GET BACK AT ME? NO, I DIDN'T DO I TO GET BACK AT YOU.
I DID I TO FIGURE STUFF OUT.
IT WASN'T ENOUGH THAT YOU REPORTED ME, THAT YOU PRACTICALLY GOT ME KICKED OUT OF SCHOOL? NED, I JUST FINISHED SAYING-- I MEAN, GOD, I AM TRYING! OK? I'M-- I'M TRYING SO HARD.
BUT NO ONE WANTS TO LET ME GET PAST THIS.
YEAH, WELL, I'M SORRY.
I MEAN, IS THAT WHAT YOU THINK? I DESERVE TO BE PUNISHED? YES.
YES, I DO.
WHAT? I LOST A YEAR OF MY LIFE, NED.
THERE IS A YEAR OF MY LIFE THAT I AM TOO SCARED TO GO BACK TO, AND YOU DID THAT.
YOU TOOK THA FROM ME, NED! JULIA-- NO--YOU KNOW WHAT? I DIDN'T COME HERE TO PUNISH YOU.
I WOULD HAVE PREFERRED NEVER TO SEE YOU FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.
FORGET IT.
I'M NOT GONNA TALK TO YOU.
I'M NOT GONNA LOOK AT YOU.
FORGET IT.
JULIA, WAIT.
LISTEN.
JUST ONE-- LUKE HAS BEEN WONDERFUL.
HE GOT US THIS SWEET LITTLE APARTMEN RIGHT NEAR THE BASE, AND HE'S DOING GREA AT HIS JOB.
BUT? BUT HE'S SO INCREDIBLE AT TRAINING THESE GUYS, HE GETS DEPLOYED TO ALL THESE OTHER BASES.
SO HE COULD BE GONE FOR, LIKE, A WEEK AT A TIME.
WOW.
SO WHAT DO YOU DO? WELL I LIKE TO THINK THAT I AM AN INDEPENDENT PERSON WHO CAN ENTERTAIN HERSELF, BUT THE TRUTH IS THAT THE NEAREST TOWN IS, LIKE, 20 MINUTES AWAY.
IT'S REALLY MORE OF, LIKE, YOU KNOW, A TRUCK STOP THAN A TOWN.
YIKES.
YEAH, I KNOW.
SO THIS TIME, WHEN HE WENT UP TO NORTH CAROLINA, I SAID, WHY NOT TAKE OFF MYSELF, YOU KNOW, GO HOME AND SEE SOME FAMILY? WELL, WE'RE GLAD YOU DID.
SO HOW DO YOU GUYS DO THIS, ANYWAY? DO WHAT? YOU BOTH HAVE CAREERS.
YOU'RE INCREDIBLY BUSY.
BUT YOU HAVE THIS REALLY STRONG MARRIAGE.
SO HOW DO YOU DO THAT? I DON'T KNOW.
WE JUST MAKE TIME FOR EACH OTHER, I GUESS.
NO, I KNOW, BUT, LIKE, WHEN? WELL, WE TRY TO HAVE BREAKFAS WITH EACH OTHER EVERY MORNING.
YEAH, EXCEPT FOR THIS MORNING.
HEY.
AND WE TRY TO TALK FOR A WHILE BEFORE WE GO TO BED.
YEAH, EXCEPT FOR WHEN HE COMES HOME AT 3:00 IN THE MORNING.
WHEN THAT HAPPENS, WHEN YOU DON'T SEE HIM FOR, LIKE, DAYS AT A TIME, WHAT DO YOU DO? YOU JUST YOU JUST TRY TO BE MORE PATIENT? I TRY.
YEAH, BUT, GOD, KIRSTEN, HOW CAN YOU KEEP DOING THAT? I DON'T KNOW.
PASSPOR OR BIRTH CERTIFICATE, WE FILL OU THE APPLICATION SO YOU'RE SAYING THAT WE DEFINITELY DON'T NEED A BLOOD TEST.
OK, GREAT.
BUT WE BOTH HAVE TO BE THERE TO GET THE LICENSE.
FINE, THAT'S NO PROBLEM.
SO HOW LONG WOULD WE HAVE TO WAIT, THEN, BEFORE WE COULD LEGALLY-- UH, YOU KNOW FISH? AND THAT'S, UH, THAT'S FRESHWATER OR SALTWATER? UH, OK, GREAT.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR HELP.
OK, BYE.
SO LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT.
YOU DON'T NEED A BLOOD TES TO GO FISHING? ACTUALLY, NO.
TURNS OUT YOU DON'T.
YOU WANT TO KEEP GOING WITH THIS OR JUST SPILL? I MEAN, 'CAUSE EITHER WAY, I'M ENTERTAINED.
OK, LOOK, IT'S NOT WHAT YOU THINK.
SO YOU'RE NO GETTING MARRIED? OK, SO IT IS WHAT YOU THINK.
KIND OF.
THAT'S PRETTY SERIOUS.
NO, SEE-- NO, IT ISN'T.
SO, WHAT, DOES SHE NEED TO GET HER GREEN CARD OR SOMETHING? YOU GOTTA FIND NEW MATERIAL, MAN.
OK? YOU GOTTA SAY TO YOURSELF, LET ME GET THROUGH ONE YEAR WITHOUT POPPING THE QUESTION.
IT'S NOT LIKE THAT, WILL.
THIS IS JUST FOR SHOW.
OK? THIS DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING.
OH.
OH, THAT'S A RELIEF.
I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE THINKING.
OK? BUT I'M NOT GONNA WAKE UP ONE DAY AND FIND MYSELF TRAPPED IN SOMETHING THAT I DON' WANT TO BE IN.
WE'RE JUST 2 PEOPLE THAT ARE DATING THAT HAPPEN TO HAVE-- HEY, SLOW DOWN, SLOW DOWN.
LIKE, A LEGAL ARRANGEMENT.
SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO-- BAILEY! I THINK IT'S GREAT.
YOU DO? YES.
THE ONE THING YOU'RE NOT TOTALLY UP IN THE AIR ABOU IS HER.
MANIF I FEL THE WAY YOU DID I WOULD MARRY THAT GIRL IN A HEARTBEAT.
SO, HE SEEMS GREAT-- VICTOR.
HE IS.
HE'S GREAT.
DID HE HAPPEN TO SAY ANYTHING? OH, NOT REALLY.
YEAH.
YOU WANT TO HELP ME WITH THIS? SO NOTHING ELSE-- ABOUT ME? YES, ACTUALLY.
HE SAID THAT, UM, YOU WERE INCREDIBLY HELPFUL.
HELPFUL? HUH.
WELL, ANYTHING ELSE? YEAH.
HE SAID THAT YOU WERE, UH, YOU KNOW, VERY SWEE AND SMART.
SMART AND SWEET.
WOW, HE MUST HAVE REALLY HATED ME.
NO, HE DID NO HATE YOU.
YOU'RE JUS NOT HIS TYPE.
REALLY? WHAT'S HIS TYPE? I JUST THINK THA VICTOR HAS THIS THING FOR ANGRY GUYS.
OH, NO, NO, NO, I GET IT, BELIEVE ME.
I GET I ALL THE TIME.
WHY IS I THAT GUYS JUST ASSUME THAT IF YOU HAPPEN TO LIKE TO HAVE YOUR SHIRTS PRESSED-- ROSS, THAT IS NOT IT.
VICTOR DOESN'T LIKE BEING SET UP.
HE DOESN' BELIEVE IN IT.
HE THINKS THAT LOVE IS SOMETHING-- I DON'T KNOW-- HE THINKS IT SHOULD BE AN ACCIDENT OR SOMETHING.
SHE SAID THE PEOPLE AT THE BASE ARE GREAT, BUT SHE DOESN' KNOW THEM.
AND LUKE'S FAMILY ASKED HER TO STAY WITH THEM WHEN HE'S OUT OF TOWN, BUT SHE DOESN'T REALLY KNOW THEM, EITHER.
SO BASICALLY SHE AND DIANA ARE ALL BY THEMSELVES OUT THERE.
(TELEPHONE RINGS) CHARLIE, THEY'RE SLEEPING.
I'M SORRY.
HELLO.
HEY, SID, WHAT'S GOIN' ON? NO.
YARSKY'S SCHEDULED, BUT IF HE DOESN'T SHOW, JUST ASK KENNEDY IF HE CAN WORK THIRD SHIFT.
AND, UH, IF NOT, THEN WE'LL HAVE TO PICK UP THE SLACK TOMORROW.
OK.
THANKS, SID.
HAVE A GOOD NIGHT.
I THOUGHT YOU WERE GONNA TELL THEM THEY WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO CALL PAST MIDNIGHT.
I DID, BUT, YOU KNOW, IF THERE'S AN EMERGENCY I'M SORRY.
WHAT WERE YOU SAYING? I'M JUST WORRIED ABOUT HER.
WELL, DON'T BE.
I'VE HAD FRIENDS IN THE ARMY.
AND AS SOON AS LUKE GETS ESTABLISHED OUT THERE, HE'LL BE ABLE TO PICK HIS OWN HOURS.
DAPHNE JUST HAS TO BE PATIENT.
YEAH, BUT HOW LONG IS SHE SUPPOSED TO WAIT? 6 MONTHS? A YEAR? SHE'S ALL ALONE WITH A CHILD IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE, CHARLIE.
SHE'S THINKING OF MOVING BACK, AND MAYBE SHE SHOULD.
KIRSTEN, SHE'S ONLY BEEN GONE A MONTH.
AND LUKE'S JUS DOING HIS JOB.
I MEAN, WHAT DOES SHE EXPECT? I DON'T KNOW.
BUT IF HE WANTS HER TO BE THERE WHEN HE GETS HOME, HE BETTER THINK OF SOMETHING.
SO, AT FIRS I WAS THINKING JUST, YOU KNOW, A SIMPLE LITTLE CEREMONY AT THE CITY HALL.
YOU, ME, AND THE COMMISSIONER OF CIVIL MARRIAGES.
BUTTHEN I WAS TALKING TO WILL-- WILL? YEAH.
YOU TOLD WILL? I THOUGHT WE WEREN' GOING TO TELL ANYONE.
HE FOUND OU BY ACCIDENT.
OK? BUT THEN I THOUGHT, WHY NOT? WELL, BECAUSE WE DISCUSSED THIS.
WE SAID THAT WE DIDN' WANT THIS TO TAKE ON A WHOLE UGLY LIFE OF ITS OWN, BAILEY.
OK, BUT, HOLLY, RELAX.
RELAX.
I KNOW THAT THIS IS JUST PRETEND.
OK? BUT IT HAS TO BE GOOD PRETEND.
AND I HAS TO LOOK REAL.
THAT MEANS YOU AND ME SMILING AND ENJOYING OURSELVES FOR THE CAMERA.
WHICH MEANS IF WE JUST RELAX AND YOU KNOW, ENJOY OURSELVES A LITTLE BIT, YOU KNOW, WE'LL DO OUR JOBS BETTER.
ANDMAYBE WE CAN EVEN HAVE A LITTLE FUN.
YEAH.
YEAH.
YOU'RE RIGHT.
THERE'S NO REASON WHY THIS SHOULDN'T BE FUN.
OK.
ALL RIGHT.
SO THEN FOR THE HONEYMOON, I WAS THINKING-- AHEM.
HONEYMOON? MAYBE WE COULD DRIVE UP TO NAPA.
I GOT AN INCREDIBLE DISCOUNT AT-- BAILEY.
A HONEYMOON? WHAT DO YOU THINK THE FIRST THING THE I.
N.
S.
ASKS FOR? IT'S PICTURES.
WHO DO YOU KNOW COMES BACK FROM THEIR HONEYMOON WITHOUT A ZILLION BORING SHOTS OF THEMSELVES HUGGING AND KISSING IN FRONT OF HISTORICAL LANDMARKS? NOBODY.
(CLEARS THROAT) I--I GUESS.
OK.
OK.
NED, WHAT ARE YOU-- LOOK, CALM DOWN.
I DON'T WANT TO SEE YOU.
YOU RAN OU BEFORE I COULD ANSWER YOU, JULIA.
I JUST HAVE 2 WORDS.
I DON'T CARE.
NO.
JULIA-- I SPENT HALF MY TIME LAST YEAR LISTENING TO YOUR WORDS, NED.
THEY'RE JUST WORDS.
I WANT YOU TO LEAVE.
BUT CAN'T I JUST-- TELL YOU I'M SORRY? I SAW SOMEONE AFTER WE BROKE UP.
MIRANDA.
WE WENT OU 6 MONTHS.
BUT AFTER SHE TOLD PEOPLE ABOUT US ABOUT ME-- I SPENT--I SPEN 2 WEEKS IN JAIL.
AND THE JUDGE, HE PRACTICALLY SPAT AT ME READING MY SENTENCE.
YOU KNOW, I KNOW I HAVE PROBLEMS.
I KNOW THAT.
BUT I WASN' LYING TO YOU.
I AM ACTUALLY TRYING.
I SAW A DOCTOR.
I'M SEEING A DOCTOR.
AND I MADE A PROMISE.
I'M NOT GONNA BE WITH ANYONE--ANYONE UNTIL I KNOW SHE'S SAFE.
WH-WHAT'S IT GONNA TAKE? HOW LONG TILL PEOPLE STOP LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT? I DON'T KNOW.
I JUST I JUST WANT TO FEEL HUMAN.
THAT'S NOT UP TO ME, NED.
WHAT'S GOING ON? GRIFFIN.
WHAT'S GOING ON? DID YOU LET HIM IN HERE? IT'S NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS, OK-- WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU? GRIFFIN, WOULD YOU LEAVE-- GET OUT OF HERE! GET GOING! I'M LEAVING.
I'M LEAVING.
SHE WAS SUPPOSED TO MEET ME HERE AFTER SCHOOL.
WE WERE GONNA HEAD OVER TO THE MUSIC SCHOOL.
I'LL JUST GET MY GLOVE AND WE CAN GO.
DO YOU WANT ME TO WAIT OUTSIDE? NO.
DON'T BE SILLY.
COME IN.
SO DID YOU HAVE A CHANCE TO CALL THAT LAWYER I RECOMMENDED? UM, ACTUALLY, I'VE DECIDED NOT TO GO THE LEGAL ROUTE.
BUT THANKS.
OWEN, COME ON, LET'S GO.
VICTOR, I CAN'T FIND IT! DID YOU LOOK IN THE BACKYARD? HEY.
WHAT'S GOING ON? HI, ROSS.
OH, I TOTALLY FORGO I WAS SUPPOSED TO MEET YOU.
OF COURSE YOU DID.
I DID.
I DID.
THAT'S OK, CLAUD.
VICTOR'S THE ONLY ONE HERE WITH A PROBLEM.
EXCUSE ME? I'M SORRY.
I GUESS THAT WASN' VERY SMART OR SWEET.
WHAT DID YOU TELL HIM? LOOK, DON'T GET MAD AT CLAUDIA.
SHE WAS JUS TRYING TO HELP.
WE BOTH WERE.
LOOK, ROSS, IT'S NOT ABOUT YOU.
BELIEVE ME, I KNOW.
YOU DON'T WAN TO GO OUT WITH ME, FINE.
BUT, GOD, FOR YOU TO REJECT MY HELP GETTING YOUR DAUGHTER BACK WHAT DOES THA HAVE TO DO WITH IT? EVERYTHING, VICTOR.
THIS WHOLE IDEA THAT YOU HAVE THAT LOVE JUST MAGICALLY HAPPENS, THAT THERE'S NO POIN IN WORKING TO HELP IT ALONG-- WHY ARE YOU-- BECAUSE I HAVE TO TELL YOU, IF I'D JUST SAT AROUND WAITING FOR LOVE TO HAPPEN, I WOULDN'T HAVE A DAUGHTER RIGHT NOW.
I SPENT MONTHS SEARCHING.
I WENT TO DOZENS OF AGENCIES.
AND YOU KNOW WHAT IT WAS IN THE END? IT WAS A MATCH MADE BY LAWYERS.
AND GUESS WHAT.
THERE'S NO ONE ON EARTH THAT I LOVE MORE.
I'M SORRY I MADE US SO LATE.
I HAD TO KEEP TRYING TO GET HIM, YOU KNOW? DON'T WORRY.
CHARLIE'S PROBABLY MUCH LATER.
HEY, HE'S ACTUALLY HERE.
DIANA, WHERE ARE YOU GOING, SWEETIE? DADDY'S OVER HERE.
HA HA! HEY! HI! WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE? YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO-- TURNED OU THEY DIDN'T NEED ME THE WHOLE WEEK, SO I WANTED TO COME UP.
I MISSED YOU.
KIRSTEN.
GOD, IT'S YOU.
HEY, COME SIT DOWN WITH ME.
I GOT SOME STUFF I WANT TO TELL YOU.
OK.
COME ON.
HI, SWEETIE, HOW YOU DOIN'? HE'S TELLING HER THA HE'S GONNA FIND, UM, A PLACE IN DALLAS SO HE CAN COMMUTE EVERY DAY.
HE IS? YEAH.
HE'S ALSO GONNA ASK FOR A PERMANENT POS ON THE BASE SO HE DOESN' HAVE TO BE DEPLOYED SO MUCH.
HOW DO YOU KNOW ALL THAT? WELL, I KIND OF HELPED.
WHAT? HOW? WH-- YOU CALLED HIM? YOU TOLD HIM TO COME HERE AND TO MAKE ALL THOSE PROMISES? WELL, THEY'RE NO JUST PROMISES, KIRSTEN.
IT'S NOT GONNA WORK.
I MEAN, GIVE THEM SOME TIME.
NO.
I I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT THEM, CHARLIE.
I'M TALKING ABOUT US.
WHAT? CHARLIE, YOU MADE THOSE SAME PROMISES.
YOU SAID THAT THINGS WOULD START GETTING EASIER.
BUT THEY KEEP GETTING WORSE.
FIRST YOU-- YOU TAKE THE JOB RUNNING THE FACTORY, THEN YOU GE THAT BIG HUGE ORDER, AND THEN YOU BOUGH THE BUSINESS FROM GUS.
I MEAN, WHEN DOES I START GETTING EASIER? OK, LISTEN.
LISTEN.
NO.
I KNOW THAT I SIGNED UP FOR ALL OF THAT.
AND I'M NOT SAYING THAT YOU'RE LYING.
I'M JUST I'M ABOUT TO HAVE A BABY REALLY SOON, AND I DON'T WANT TO HAVE I ALL BY MYSELF.
THAT IS NO GONNA HAPPEN.
YOU KNOW I WON' LET THAT HAPPEN.
I KNOW THAT YOU DON' WANT THAT TO HAPPEN.
BUT SOONER OR LATER, I HAVE TO WONDER HOW MUCH THAT MEANS.
KIRSTEN NO.
NO.
IF YOU WAN TO DO SOMETHING, DON'T TELL ME ABOUT IT, JUST BECAUSE I JUST I CAN'T HEAR ANY MORE WORDS.
SO WHAT'D HE SAY? HAVE A LO OF EXCUSES? GRIFFIN DID HIS OLD MAN BEAT HIM UP? IS THAT HIS ROUTINE? HE WANTED TO SAY HE WAS SORRY.
YEAH, RIGHT.
JULIAWHY? WHY DO YOU HAVE TO BE NICE TO THE GUY? I WASN'T NICE TO HIM.
YOU FORGAVE HIM, THOUGH, DIDN'T YOU? NO, I DIDN'T FORGIVE HIM.
I WAS STRAIGHT WITH HIM.
I TOLD HIM I WANTED HIM TO LEAVE ME ALONE.
GOOD.
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, GRIFFIN? I DO WANT TO FORGIVE HIM.
I HOPE I CAN.
WHY? I DON'T KNOW.
BECAUSE MAYBE I WANT TO FORGIVE MYSELF.
BECAUSE MAYBE I'D BE ABLE TO LOOK BACK AND SAY I WASN'T ALL WRONG.
'CAUSE I DID ACTUALLY LOVE HIM, GRIFFIN.
(SIGHS) WHAT? IT'S JUST A BUNCH OF CRAP.
YOU CAN'T HAVE I BOTH WAYS, JULIA.
IF YOU FORGIVE HIM, THAT'S LIKE SAYING THAT WHAT HE DID TO YOU WAS OK.
THAT LIKE IF HE SAYS HE'S SORRY AND--AND-- AND EVENTUALLY HE ACTS LIKE HE MEANS I THAT IT'S OK.
GRIFFIN, THAT'S NOT-- LOOK, YOU YOU WANTED MY OPINION.
YOU MIGHT NO AGREE WITH IT, BUT THAT'S IT.
(FOOTSTEPS) HEY, YOU.
HI.
2 SECONDS, OK? I'M JUS FINISHING UP HERE.
YOU'RE A VERY STRANGE PERSON.
YOU KNOW THAT.
(LAUGHS) IS "STRANGE" ONE OF THOSE WORDS THAT'S ACTUALLY A COMPLIMENT IN ENGLAND? NO.
JUST, REALLY THERE'S NO ONE ELSE LIKE YOU.
NO ONE I'VE EVER MET.
AND HERE I AM ON THE VERGE OF BEING DEPORTED, AND NOT ONLY DO YOU COME UP WITH A SOLUTION, BUT YOU'VE MANAGED TO MAKE IT FANTASTIC.
AND I LOVE YOU FOR THAT.
HOLLY DID YOU HEAR WHAT I SAID? I SAID I LOVE YOU.
YEAH, I HEARD.
AND I NEED YOU TO UNDERSTAND THAT, BECAUSE I I NEED YOU TO UNDERSTAND THAT THAT'S WHY I CAN'T MARRY YOU, BAILEY.
HOLLY WAIT, WAIT, WAIT, WAIT.
IS THIS BECAUSE OF ALL THE THE HONEYMOON STUFF? DID I FREAK YOU OU WITH THAT? NO.
IT'S NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU.
IT'S, UH IT'S ME, UH I WAS WALKING BACK FROM SCHOOL TODAY, AND I PASSED THIS DEPARTMENT STORE, AND I THOUGHT, I NEED SOME CLOTHES TO GET MARRIED IN.
SO, I WENT IN, AND I FOUND THIS INCREDIBLE DRESS, AND IT WAS KIND OF EXPENSIVE, AND I THOUGHT, WHAT THE HECK, IT'S MY WEDDING DAY, RIGHT? AND THEN I HAD TO STOP MYSELF AND GO WAIT.
THIS IS A MISTAKE.
BECAUSEALL OF THIS, BAILEY, ALL OF THIS IS JUST PRETEND.
AND WHAT IF I WAS LEADING YOU ON? HOLLY, WAIT A MINUTE-- NO, BECAUSE I DON'T WAN TO BE SECOND-GUESSING EVERY DECISION THAT I MAKE ABOUT US.
I DON'T WAN TO BE THINKING THAT WHEN YOU'RE SLEEPING OVER, ARE WE ACTING LIKE WE'RE TOO MARRIED? ARE WE MOVING TOO FAST? OK, SO THEN WE WON'T DO THAT.
YEAH, BUT WHAT IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG? WHAT IF YOU FIND A DREAM JOB IN ALASKA? I JUST DON'T WANT YOU TO THINK THAT WE CAN' TAKE A BREAK BECAUSE WE MIGHT BE JEOPARDIZING MY GREEN CARD.
OK, LOOK.
I KNOW THAT THIS ISN'T EASY.
NO.
I CAN'T.
AND I WON'T DO THIS TO US.
I WON'T.
HEY, WERE YOU GONNA DRIVE ME TO SCHOOL? YEAH, JUST A SEC.
CAN YOU WAIT? UH-HUH.
WHAT'S THIS? IT'S, UH IT'S A SITE FOR ABUSE VICTIMS.
HMM.
WHY ARE YOU-- WELL, THEY, UH, THEY ASKED FOR LETTERS AND STORIES AND STUFF SO PEOPLE CAN SHARE THEIR EXPERIENCES.
JULIE, IS THAT YOUR BOOK? YUP.
TRYING TO UPLOAD IT, BUT I CAN'T FIGURE OU HOW TO TAG THE FILE.
THE WHOLE THING? SURE.
WHY NOT? I DON'T KNOW, I JUST-- THOUGHT YOU WEREN' DONE WITH IT.
YOU KNOW, I THOUGH IT HAD SOME PROBLEMS.
YUP, IT DOES.
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? I READ IT AGAIN LAST NIGHT, AND I ADDED AN AFTERWORD ABOUT SEEING NED AFTER ALL THIS TIME, AND IT'S GOOD ENOUGH.
SINCE WHEN IS GOOD ENOUGH GOOD ENOUGH? WELL, I DON'T KNOW.
I MEAN, GRIFFIN WOULD SAY I'M TOO FORGIVING OF NED, AND NED WOULD SAY IT'S NOT FORGIVING ENOUGH, ANY EDITOR WOULD SAY IT'S NOT READY TO PU OUT THERE YET, AND ADAM WOULD SAY I SHOULDN'T CARE ABOUT ANY OF THEM.
AND THE TRUTH IS THEY'RE ALL PARTLY RIGHT.
SO YOU KNOW WHAT? BOTTOM LINE IS IF I THINK IT'S READY, THEN IT'S READY.
RIGHT? OK.
JUST CLICK ON THAT BUTTON THERE THAT SAYS BROWSE.
AND YOU'LL FIND WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR.
THANK YOU.
YOU'RE WELCOME.
THERE IT IS.
OK.
VICTOR.
CLAUDIA.
HI.
HEY.

HOW ABOUT YOU? JUST HAVING COFFEE.
THAT'S ALL.
I'M JUST GONNA SET THIS DOWN.
OK.
LISTEN, I MEAN, I'M REALLY SORRY ABOUT THE ROSS THING.
YOU WERE RIGHT.
IT WAS NONE OF MY BUSINESS.
OK, NO, YOU KNOW WHAT? IT'S FINE.
REALLY.
YOU WERE JUS TRYING TO HELP.
OH, WAIT.
DO NOT TURN AROUND.
IT'S ROSS.
REALLY? YEAH, UH HUH.
I'LL JUST, UH, DISTRAC HIM AND YOU CAN HEAD OUT.
OH, WAIT, ARE YOU HERE WITH SOMEONE? ME? WHY? WELL, YOU'VE GO TWO CUPS OF-- VICTOR.
HMM? YOU'RE HERE WITH ROSS.
WHAT? YOU ARE.
YOU'RE ON A DATE WITH ROSS.
NO.
THIS IS COFFEE.
I KNEW IT.
SEE, I KNEW IT.
I WAS RIGHT AND HERE YOU ARE SAYING IT JUS HAS TO HAPPEN.
NOTHING IS HAPPENING.
NOT YET.
AND ESPECIALLY IF YOU DON'T GET OUT OF HERE.
IF HE SEES YOU, HE'S GONNA ASK YOU TO JOIN US, SO SCOOT! HEY.
HEY.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE? I THOUGHT YOU HAD TO WORK LATE? I DID.
BUT, UH THEN I REALIZED THAT I HAD SOMETHING THAT I HAD TO DO MORE.
OH.
WHAT? I HAD TO COME HOME AND CELEBRATE OUR ANNIVERSARY.
CHARLIE, OUR ANNIVERSARY WAS DAYS AGO.
OR MONTHS FROM NOW IF YOU MEAN THE REAL ONE.
I KNOW.
BUT, THIS IS A DIFFERENT ANNIVERSARY.
IT IS? THIS IS THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE DAY THAT I CAME HOME FROM WORK EARLY TO TELL YOU THAT FROM NOW ON, I'M GONNA MAKE SURE THAT I'M HOME TO YOU NO LATER THAN 7:00 IN THE EVENING.
WHAT? 3 NIGHTS A WEEK, MINIMUM.
WITH AN OPTION FOR A FOURTH.
CHARLIE, I KNOW YOU MEAN WELL.
BUT I DON'T WANT YOU TO MAKE ANY PROMISES THAT YOU CAN'T KEEP.
SEE? I'M UNPLUGGING THE PHONE.
AND I'M TURNING OFF MY CELL PHONE.
AND ALSO MY PAGER.
AND PLEASE NOTICE 3 UNANSWERED CALLS ALREADY.
I WAS TOO BUSY CALLING OU FOR TAKE-OUT IN THE CAR-- WHICH SHOULD BE HERE ANY MINUTE.
AND (MUSIC PLAYING) WOW.
THREE NIGHTS A WEEK? AND THAT'S JUST MY OPENING OFFER.
YOU CAN ALWAYS COUNTER.
I THINK I'D JUST LIKE TO DANCE.
HEY.
HI.
CAN I TALK TO YOU GUYS FOR A SEC? YEAH, WHAT'S GOING ON? I LIE IN BED IN THAT LAUNDRY ROOM, I LOOK UP AT THOSE PIPES, AND YOU KNOW WHAT I DREAM ABOUT? OTHER THAN MY OWN APARTMENT? I DREAM OF HAVING WHAT YOU GUYS HAVE.
SOMEBODY I CARE ABOUT SO MUCH I'D RISK GETTING ARRESTED TO KEEP HER AROUND.
OR FLY THOUSANDS OF MILES TO PROTEC THE RELATIONSHIP.
WILL, WHAT ARE YOU-- BAILEY, YOU'RE MY BEST FRIEND.
OK, AND YOU'VE PROVEN THAT TO ME AGAIN AND AGAIN.
I MEAN, LAST YEAR WITH HANNAH, AND THIS YEAR WITH LETTING ME MOVE IN WITH YOU.
THE POINT IS, THIS IS MY CHANCE TO GIVE SOMETHING BACK.
WHAT'S GOING ON? WILL YOU MARRY ME, HOLLY? I THINK YOU SHOULD-- YOU SHOULD MARRY ME.
HOLLY.
TOO DRAMATIC.
SORRY.
THAT'S--IT'S JUST-- GOD, I HOPE THIS IS EASIER WHEN I HAVE TO DO I FOR REAL.
WILL, YOU GO TO BE KIDDING?! NO, I'M NOT.
I--I'VE GIVEN THIS ALL KINDS OF THOUGHT.
AND I WANT TO DO THIS FOR YOU.
I--NO, WILL.
I--I-- I CAN'T LET YOU DO THIS.
YES, YOU CAN.
YOU ARE THE BEST THING THAT'S HAPPENED TO HIM IN A REALLY LONG TIME.
YOU GUYS CAN' TALK ME OUT OF IT.
I HAVE RIGH ON MY SIDE, SO SAY YES.
YES! THAT MEANS YOU COULD STAY.
OH, MY GOD! WELL, GOOD.
THIS IS--THIS IS GREAT.
I'M, UH, I'M SO GLAD.
OH, WILL.
THANK YOU SO MUCH! I DON'T BELIEVE IT.
WOW.
WHAT A SHOCK WHEN I LOOKED FOR POSTS TODAY AND SAW YOUR BOOK.
I THOUGHT, "WOW, THAT'S GUTSY, POSTING A 250-PAGE BOOK.
" THEN I STARTED READING.
Second woman: YOU PUT STUFF IN WORDS THAT I NEVER KNEW HOW TO SAY.
IT WAS LIKE SOMEONE WAS TELLING MY STORY TO ME.
I HAVE ALL KINDS OF FRIENDS WHO TRY TO HELP, THANK YOU, JULIA.
BUT THERE'S NO SUBSTITUTE FOR PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY KNOW.
THEY ALL THINK SEEING HIM LIKE SOME KIND OF MONSTER IS SOME KIND OF ANSWER.
THE ANSWER IS, GO GET HELP.
BUT MOST OF ALL, THANKS FOR REMINDING ME I'M NOT ALONE.
THESE THINGS HAPPEN TO PEOPLE.
Second woman: AND AFTERWARDS, EVEN IF I HAVE TO START FROM SCRATCH, AND THERE'S NO ONE AROUND, I'LL BE FINE.
BECAUSE I'M NEVER ALONE ONCE I'VE LEARNED HOW TO COUNT ON MYSELF.
