Is that all? For the moment, yes.
Thank you, olof, for understanding, Emma is very, very sorry about all of this.

No, come on ref.
Ref! There's been five fouls called on our team, not one on the other team.
Okay? What's your problem? Coach, just leave the court.
Listen, you know what, I used to be a "bajskorv", okay? So I know how difficult it is.
And maybe bajskorv is not your thing.
You know, maybe you shouldn't be bajskorv, because you know, it's hard.
I give you a technical foul, please leave the court.
Technical for what? Stop talking, just leave.
Okay, fine, you know what? I'm going to leave anyways because these kids are useless, okay? Hey honey, great game.
Great game? We're getting killed and I just got thrown out of it.
Yeah, but apart from that.
I don't even know if I can coach these guys.
The language difference is just too much, I think.
I can help you, dude, I can be your translator.
Nah Sure I can, when do you practice next time? Tuesday.
Great, I'll be there.
And just so you know, the referee is not called "bajskorv".
He's called "domarjavel".
Domarjavel? Oh my god, that's the problem.
Apologies for the "bajskorv" thing, I got misinformation on that.
Okay, let's rehearse.
Bruce, you can play britt.
What? You're American, you know all the dirty tricks.
It's in your blood.
Come.
No.
Yes, you're very convincing.
You somehow talked Emma into marrying you.
Get up.
Okay, but you know I don't even speak Swedish, so Well, we can do it in English.
Get up! Now, the meeting room is packed with people, then britt says: "Next topic, the apartments in the attic.
Birger wiik, do you want to say something?" "Next topic, the apartments in the attic, birger wiik, would you like to say something?" Ehm, well I, ehm I have you say, I don't like this project.
Eh, I love the Hobby room, I'm still there a couple of hours a week.
Okay, is there anybody else that uses the room? That's a good point bru britt.
Ehm - Maybe you're right.
- Birger, you give up in a second.
You're great as britt, though.
Thanks.
I don't think it's worth fighting for.
Okay, this has been very interesting, I've got to go.
- Now? - Yeah, - I'm trying to save my career.
- Okay.
Yes, thank you guys so much.
Nae, britt.
We're not done yet, please.
Uh, okay.
See you back.
Oh, god.
Dumb cow.
You know maybe we should come up with some sort of slogan, something that will stick in people's minds.
Bra.
Like Obama had "yes we can".
Great! How about, uh "No we cannot?" Wow, look at this, it smells great.
I'm making eggs Benedict! Almost ready.
Okay? Wow, looks great.
There you go.
Wow, it's amazing.
I also made some seating charts for the wedding so if you can take a look at them.
It's sorted by, this one by language and this one is by political views, so that would be great.
Okay, when did you have time to do all this? Last night, or I came home an hour ago and I took a shower, and I started with breakfast.
Wow, it's amazing, it's like you're a super girlfriend.
I'm a little stressed but it's a positive stress, you know? I feel like, "bring it on", huh! Okay.
I got to run, babe.
So, I love you.
Honey, you Your phone.
Is something wrong, are you okay? Am I okay? Okay? Okay? Yeah, yeah, I'm okay.
Because You forgot your phone.
Oh, thank you.
Huh! And can I have the ham in your briefcase? Here you go.
Thank you.
Okay, bye.
Okay, I just need your professional opinion on this.
I've never seen Emma like this before.
She's working around the clock, she's not sleeping.
She's starting to do some really weird things.
I think she's on crack.
She's stressed, it's obvious.
About work.
No, about the marriage.
No, about work.
It's the marriage.
I think it's about work, but regardless of the reason, what can I do about it? It sounds like she's about to hit the wall.
I keep hearing that phrase.
What does that mean? What is that? "Hitting the wall"? Yeah? It's huge in Sweden.
It's almost bigger than melodifestivalen.
Okay well, it doesn't exist in the U.
S.
No of course not, it's a Swedish song contest.
No, I mean the concept of hitting the wall.
We don't have that.
So, what do you call it? When you're tired, overworked, stressed, and then you crash, what do you call that? I think we just call that "life".
Have you seen "the sopranos"? Mm-hm.
You know how Tony has these anxiety attacks and starts crying when some birds leave his pond? Mm-hm.
That's what happens when you're hitting the wall.
Oh my god, no! Oh, yeah.
Emma's turning soprano? I'm busy.
Can I call you back? Sure.
Something wrong? I'm busy.
Can I call you back? Okay, but are you sure nothing's wrong? I'll call you back, okay? Okay.
Call me later.
Okay, everybody, I want to welcome our new translator.
His name's gustaf.
Go.
Wait, did you say assistant coach? No.
Okay.
'Cause you're not my assistant No, no.
Okay, uhm, last match, let's be honest, didn't go so well, so I was hoping maybe we could just focus a little more.
Go.
Thank you.
Uh, so I thought, maybe we'll start with two lay-up lines.
Go.
I was right, it was just the language! Yeah, yeah.
Yes.
"Smarta", does that mean "lay-up", or? Yeah, it's like a quick lay-up.
Okay Hi, honey.
I think something's wrong.
Come here.
Listen, I would love to show you around, but I can't, my girlfriend is sick.
No, I mean in Sweden they have this weird thing that's called the soprano disease, or something? Bruce, can I talk to you for a minute? Can I call you back? Yes.
Yeah, it's about the team.
I know, what a turn-around, right? They're so good now.
It's mostly due to this guy, I have to say, couldn't have done it without him.
Hey, I'm just a natural born motivator.
Ah, brilliant.
Actually Adam told me this morning that you had threatened to kill me and Karl if he didn't play better.
What? That's crazy.
That's crazy, "are you crazy?" But then I called jens' parents and they told me the same story.
I don't even know what to say because that's I it must be kids with their imagination or something, I've never heard of Gustaf, have you? Gustaf? We're not living in America
