Mr. Lauddem... Mr. Lauddem.
I have the last one.
- Oh, hey! - How are you?
- Hi. - Fantastic.
- that put himself out and down.
- I certainly can't. - I seem to be blacklisted.
Oh, my goodness.
- I wonder if I go to her New Year's party...
- Did you hear Sumera's story about getting caught on Shelter Island?
- Yes, I know, and it was horrifying
because there are absolutely no charging stations.
- Oh my God. I don't think anyone really talks about it.
All these stories are coming from that party.
You're doing it again.
It relaxes me.
- Steven, Duftin Haverford is here.
You mean Dustin.
No, Duftin. Duftin Haverford.
He's the head of the board of the Troika Opera Space.
- I think you should say hello. - I can't
- Why? Just tell him you're making progress.
I wanna go home.
- Do you want to keep the commission?
- Of course, I do. - Mr. Haverford!
Hello, so nice to meet you. I'm Patricia Jessup-Lauddem
I just wanted to introduce you to my husband.
- Steven Luaddem. - Hello.
- I was hoping we'd see you here.
It's wonderful to meet you at last. Duftin Haverford.
I've been a long-time admirer of your work.
- Thank you. - Uh, this is Frank Hall.
- He's our newest board member. - So nice to meet you.
- It's a pleasure to meet you. - Yes, Frank.
- How's the new opera coming along?
- You know, okay. - It's marvelous.
Pretty good. Great, great.
We had discussed
seeing a first draft of the score in two weeks.
- Two weeks. - That still all right?
- That... That should be okay, right?
Is he alright?
He had a total breakdown after his last opera, five years ago.
Disappeared. Stopped being able to compose,
deep depression. Very deep.
well, if she was my therapist, I'd marry her too.
- I wonder if we'll look different after...
- I think I was in just like complete auto pilot.
Oh, I'm doing this all wrong.
- What? Bro you could have called me.
- Ladies. - Hey, Trey!
- Hi, Mr. Ruffa. - Hi, Mr. Ruffa.
How was the battle?
- It went very well. Thanks for asking.
- Here we go. - Who won?
- Very funny. You girls should join me
one of these days. It'd behoove you to learn some history.
- I'll wear a bonnet, I'm not proud.
They have free pie, right?
- I'm not going unless you give me a musket.
- Ugh, the barrels of those muskets were filthy today.
- Really? - These new idiots
love to say they'd have been that way historically...
whereas, in actual fact, they were cleaned every night.
They're just lazy.
Pass the buns to the right.
Okay, but why?
- You always pass food to the right.
It avoids confusion.
Aren't you chilly in that?
- No. - Put your sweatshirt on.
It's making me cold just looking at you.
I need to be at the courthouse early tomorrow.
Six forty-five AM departure.
- Are you working tomorrow, babe?
- I'll pack Tereza's lunch tonight.
- Big case? - Parental kidnapping.
Woman without custody absconded with her son to Arkansas
and the... the father pressed charges.
Looks like she's going down.
How did they find her?
- Well... Once a serious charge is made,
you'd be surprised how fast we can lock down the roads.
- Yes, yes, yes, yes... and then I think the act break
is right after this scene.
I can't do this.
What do you mean?
I can't get inside it.
You loved this idea.
I wanted to love it.
That tears it.
Steven I have to tell you something.
I've had another offer.
- Raef Gundel. - Rafe...
Do you hate me?
- Hey, Doc. - Mm-hmm.
I know it's Thursday, but...
I was thinking tonight could be a good night
for sex night. Possibly.
It is an interesting idea. But you know...
No, turn it back on.
- Morning, sweetie. - Morning.
Has anybody moved this?
No honey, of course not.
- It's definitely closer to the window.
What is that?
- Sort of a new take on passive cooling and heating.
We adopted the idea from a Sub-Saharan ant.
And they have these little special hairs
so that they can deflect heat.
Super cool, but I don't have time to explain.
- Amazing. - Honey before you go,
I had an idea about the Harvard essay.
- Oh, I'm not applying there. - Since when?
I don't like the program.
