I worked at random house for three years.
I started as an assistant to a marketing VP,
and then I worked my way up to junior editor.
At the time, I was one of the youngest people ever
to make editor.
I was 25.
Don't worry. You don't look a day over 7.
And then for the past...
What, 15 years, nothing?
I quit to raise my child, Caitlin,
who's now spending her senior year
in an exchange program in India.
Look, I know I've been out of play for a while,
but I am a much smarter, more capable person today
than I was 15 years ago.
Hmm, I'm sure.
I'm ready to throw myself back into work 24-7.
I'm ready to pick up where I left off.
Well, it has been quite a long hiatus, Liza.
Things have changed.
Facebook, Twitter, iPhones.
IPads, ebooks, YouTube.
Instagram, Snapchat, Skype.
Pinterest. Bang with Friends.
Seriously? You Bang with Friends?
It's way better than Tinder.
Alice met a guy on Tinder last week
who showed her a boob shot
of a girl his roommate hooked up with,
and it was her very own boob.
Shut up. And she could recognize it?
Clear as a fingerprint.
Look, I'm not expecting to come back where I left off.
I'll start anywhere.
I'm a terrific reader.
I'll start as an assistant.
Oh, that would be weird.
I mean, assistants are generally right out of college.
You're way too o...
No, I think she was gonna say...
I'm way too orange?
Please don't put words in my mouth, Liza.
They've lived here for 12 years,
but then Dave had left Liza for Debbie,
a Blackjack dealer he was shtupping in Atlantic City.
The good news is he left Liza the house.
The bad news is, of course,that he took out four mortgages
that she never knew about to support his gambling habit.
I've said too much. You don't need the details.
I love a flat screen above a fireplace.
I don't know.
Sounds like the home of a woman who lives with her cats
and is gonna die alone.
Not in this house, she won't.
She can't afford to.
Now, either someone buys this place by next week,
or it goes to the bank.
Can she leave the TV?
Hi. Can I get anybody anything?
Coffee? Tea? Cyanide?
I'm trying to have a cultural experience.
You can't call me every day.
Caitlin, I do not call you every day.
But I want you to know we're selling the house.
So you may want to come home from Bombay early.
Mom, it's Mumbai,
and you just want me to come home to help you pack.
That is not true. I miss you.
It's just because you don't have anything else going on
in your life right now.
You're just feeling hurt and rejected
since Dad left.
Well, thanks for putting that in a nutshell
and stabbing me with it.
Okay, I think you're so brilliant,
and you used to have such a cool job.
You should really go back to work.
Well, you're gonna be late for class.
I'll call you tomorrow.
Bye, mom. I love you.
How is that the older and more experienced you are
the less you desirable you become?
You're talking about your marriage again?
No, finding work.
I have gone on over a dozen interviews,
and these young girls seem to take a special pleasure
in rubbing my age in my face.
It's like I woke up one day,
and I'd become Ruth van wrinkle.
Liza, you did the right thing for the time.
No, you did the right thing.
You followed your artistic dreams,
you stuck with the lesbian thing,
and you moved to Brooklyn before it become hot.
Excuse me, I moved to Brooklyn
because I couldn't afford Manhattan.
And now thanks to all these bearded cheese mongers
and chicks that look like Macaulay Culkin,
I can't afford Brooklyn.
Jeez, how did I miss the memo on Brooklyn?
And by the way, when did Bombay become Mumbai?
You know you can't call it Bombay anymore?
Well, who wants the word "bomb"
in the name of their city anyway?
You know what, I got to pee.
Order, like, six more of these,
and then we'll go dancing,
and we'll split that hit of ecstasy I've been saving
Excuse me. Sir.
Mr. bartender. Hello.
Oh. Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Hey, hey, hey. You don't wave a shoe.
Never wave a shoe.
In Thailand, that's considered a capital offense.
And you've been to Thailand?
