Nick - Hey baby
Connie - Hi, Honey. You Hungry?
Nick - No, We got breakfast at Ted's
Connie - Oh.
Nick - Where are you going?
Connie - Little Nicky's teacher wants to talk to be about his attention span.
Nick - What about it?
Connie - Apparently he doesn't have one. How do I look? Do I look parental and concerned?
Nick - Um, You look great. That sounds serious, maybe I should go with you.
Connie - No, that's okay, Nick. I can handle this. You can stay and get some sleep.
Nick - Sleep is boring.
Connie - I worry about you.
Nick - Do you have to right away?
Connie - Why?
Nick - (messages her shoulders)
Connie - Oh that feels good.
Nick - Will you at least hurry back?
Connie - From where?
Nick - The attention thing.
Connie - Right. Save it honey. There's a casserole in the, uh, fridge.
Nick - Fridge.
Connie - (leaves and then comes back) Be fast.
Nick - It will be like it never happened.
Connie - Good. (Nick carries her up the stairway) Oh God, Nick. You know what we need for the stairs? You know what those old people have?
Connie - Yes, I'll be right there. I'm sorry, sister Beatrice. Yes, I...I understand. I'm sorry, very sorry. (Hangs up phone) I hate conferences like this. What's always unsaid is that you're a failure as a parent.
Nick - Come on Connie. She's a nun. They're very unhappy. Don't worry, I'll help him with his homework.
Connie - Oh honey, you'll only be ale to do that when you work days.
Nick - So he'll be a third smarter.
Connie - You work days 12 days a month. That's hardly a third.
Nick - Twelve into thirty-one. That's uh...
Connie - Honey, I've got my art class tonight.
Nick - What are you talking about?
Connie - The adult extension class, drawing the human form. I told you.
Nick - Oh, the um...
Connie - I need, you know, to feel a little more.. I need to have a life of the mind.
Nick - Are there going to be a lot of bare-assed guys?
Connie - No, they're not coming till week three.
Nick - That's what you're doing it for.
Connie - Do you, uh, think it's a bad idea?
Nick - No, no. I think all that stuff is good. Whatever makes you happy, y'know? You're happy, aren't you, Connie?
Connie - Yeah, sure. What a funny ol' question.
Connie - Honey, I need a refill.
Nick - Hey muffin.
Connie - Hello (to Mary Bell) I'm Connie Falzone. I just met your husband. Have you met my husband, Nick?
Mary - Umm, no.
Nick - Let's try that again. I'm Nick Falzone. I'll be here all week.
Connie - Here he is. (Laughs) So, Mary, do you have children.
Mary - Not at all.
