I don't understand why we can't continue construction.
We could become partners.
Well, If you finish it, we can sell it.
You're being unreasonable.
Look, you're bleeding us dry!
Don't twist. Everyone knows real estate 's in trouble. Come on!
We sell, everybody wins.
I-I'll get you some money.
No, don't hang up. Goddamit.
Mr. Kaplan, Kyle Miller again.
Yeah, hi. I'm calling
about the golconda diamond that we discussed.
Well, I have a buyer. I know we haven't done business before
but I assure you I can be an asset to your company.
Let me show you what I can do with this stone.
No, I won't take commission.
What do you have to lose? It's my contact and my risk.
I guarantee it's 100% reliable.
If this goes upside down, it's on me, okay?
Hang up. Hang up. I'm calling him now. Thanks.
Emile Strewart? Kyle Miller. How are you?
Hey, Mom, can I go to a party?
Come on, Avery. Not tonight.
It's at this guy Jake's house. Everyone's going.
Friends from school.
Why are you being so vague about it?
I'm not. Hang on. I'm getting water-boarded.
Please? It's no big thing.
Yeah? Well, if it's no big thing,
why can't you tell me who you're going with? Hm?
So, that little daydream we discussed.
Yes, the flawless one.
Well, it turns out it could be yours provided that, uh...
Just a minute.
Provided that you come up with a less insulting number.
No, you're gonna have to do a little bit better than that, Emile,
or my seller's gonna walk.
It's just a party.
Why do you have such a problem with Kendra?
Avery, I just thought we could have
dinner at home tonight as a family. Your Dad's back.
I thought it'd be nice.
I don't wanna have dinner. I wanna go to a party.
Well, I said no.
Fine, I'll ask Dad.
Okay. Ask him.
Emile, Stafford's offering two percent above your price.
Yes! That Stafford. Carl Stafford.
Mom's being arbitrary and inflexible.
Oh, come on.
I need hugs.
What difference does it make if Carl said it or he didn't say it?
The point is you're getting a damn good rock.
Uh, just a minute.
Did you wear that to school?
Can I go to a friend's party?
I have to go with your mother on this.
No! I don't wanna meet with your buyer. I wanna meet with you.
You don't know what we we're talking about.
Yes. We were talking about Kendra.
That means boys, probably older,
and that is every father's worst nightmare. I'm sorry, Sweetie.
Yes, yes. I'm back. No, tonight is fine.
Uh, I could be there in 30,45 with traffic.
Whatever you two are going through treating me like a child,
isn't gonna make anything any better.
Are we going through something?
I don't know. Are we?
Look, I'm sorry about all this. It's just...
It's just a bit crazy here at the office today.
Yes. Well, I don't think you're really hearing me.
Emile, this is the flawless.
It's whiter than the snow on Mount Fuji.
Are you cartooning me? This is a 2A diamond
so clear you will weep. You will just weep.
I mean, in any other circumstance a four karat golconda is 1.5 million dollars.
I mean, this is a steal.
I'm inviting you to steal from me. Yes, cash.
This is a basement price.
I'm not even taking a commission.
No, it has to be cash.
Thank you. Thank you, Emile.
I'm glad we could come to an understanding.
And you won't be disappointed. Good-bye.
I'm on the phone.
I just wondered if you wanted something to eat before you go out.
Uh, no, I'll pick something up.
Please don't say it's all
because you love me and you're worried about me.
Honey, you have to eat something.
I'm not hungry.
All right. Well, I'm just gonna leave it here.
Avery, you're so pretty and you're so smart and you...
You just don't have to be in such a hurry to grow up.
I love you, baby.
I know, Mom. I love you, too.
They think you're a bad influence.
You know, I'm actually pretty sure
that my mom is having sex with her divorce lawyer.
Do you have his number? My mom's gonna need one.
How was Houston?
Just supplying diamonds for oil men's mistresses.
Oh, she's still in her room.
She hates me.
No, she doesn't hate you. She hates both of us.
Uh. I found this.
Do you think she's smoking?
I hope not.
It's not just this. There were cigarettes out by the pool.
I'm worried about her.
This guy's only in town tonight,
otherwise the whole deal, just, you know?
You look so beautiful.
What I do, that I leave, that I can't always be here,
it's all for you and Avery.
