- [Charlie] What I love about Nicole... she makes people feel comfortable about even embarrassing things. Hey, you look like you care about animals. Yes, I do. [Charlie] She really listens when so
- [Charlie] I get stuck in my ways, and she knows when to push me and when to leave me alone.
- Yeah! She's always inexplicably brewing a cup of tea that she doesn't drink.
- And it's not easy for her to put away a sock, or close a cabinet, or do a dish, but she tries for me. Nicole grew up in LA around actors, and directors, and movies, and TV, and is very close to h
- - [Charlie] Hmm. - [Nicole] Note the wrapping.
- - [laughing] - [Charlie] Nicole gives great presents. Uh... [blows] - [shrieks] - [laughs] [Charlie] She is a mother who plays, really plays. - Lizard? - Yeah. [Charlie] She never steps off p

- Are you kidding me? I was just in jail! Goddamn it! - Do not laugh at me! Stop it! - [Charlie] She's competitive. She's amazing at opening jars because of her strong arms, - which I've always fo
- How could you? After that movie, All Over The Girl, she could have stayed in LA and been a movie star, but she gave that up to do theater with me in New York. You might as well get what you paid
- My crazy ideas are her favorite things to figure out how to execute. [stomps]
- [Charlie] Let's try it... crawling...
- but also standing. She's my favorite actress.
- [Nicole] What I love about Charlie... Charlie is undaunted.
- He never lets other people's opinions or any setbacks keep him from what he wants to do. [Henry] And he liked me, so... [Nicole] Charlie eats like he's trying to get it over with and like there
- So... [Nicole] He's energy-conscious. Hey.
- Sorry. [Nicole] He doesn't look in the mirror too often. I cried four times. Me too. [Nicole] He cries easily in movies. I wonder if it was the same four. [Nicole] He's very self-sufficient. H
- [Charlie] How are we doing over here? The peppers are cut. [Nicole] He rarely gets defeated, which... I feel like I always do. ...I've got some carrots.
- [Nicole] Charlie takes all of my moods steadily. He doesn't give in to them or make me feel bad about them. [speaks indistinctly] He's a great dresser. He never looks embarrassing, which is har
- - Dad. - [Nicole] He loves being a dad. He loves all the things you're supposed to hate, like the tantrums, the waking up at night. I had a bad dream.
- [Nicole] It's almost annoying how much he likes it, but... then, it's mostly nice. Dad, stay.
- [Nicole] He disappears into his own world. Shit. - [Henry] What's "shit?" - This is our stop. [Nicole] He and Henry are alike in that way.
- He can tell people when they have food in their teeth or on their face in a way that doesn't make them feel bad. [Charlie] Perfect. [Nicole] Charlie is self-made. His parents... I only met them
- With the theater company, he cast a spell that made everyone feel included. No one, not even an intern, was unimportant. He could remember all the inside jokes. - And where do you go when it's wi
- [Nicole] He's extremely organized and thorough. He's very clear about what he wants, unlike me, who can't always tell. Let's stop right there.
- I-I'm not going to read this out loud.
- Why is that? Because I don't like what I wrote.
- As we mediate your separation and eventual divorce, things can get quite contentious. So, I like to begin with a note of positivity, for the people I work with to remember why they got married i
- I'll read mine. I like what I wrote.
- For it to really work, you both have to read. I'm not going to. Okay, um... I just think it's a shame that you guys aren't going to get to hear, uh, the wonderful things you wrote about each ot
- Well, I think I'm going to go if you two are going to just sit around and suck each other's dicks.
- [man on TV] Well, I'd have to study it, but... [Nicole] Hey. Oh. Hey, I didn't expect you guys home until late. - How's he doing? - Good, good. He went to bed on time. No fuss. Read him some o
- [turns on TV] [man 1 on TV]...conversation as well as anybody, but I've gotta run. [continues indistinctly] ...if you know what I mean. - [man 2] Y-You're leaving? - [man 1] Well, I ain't moving
- If you don't like that mediator, we'll find another one. - [Nicole] Yeah. - W-We might not need a mediator. We'll just split everything anyway, I don't care. - Me neither. - [Charlie] You can h
- Uh-huh. I told Henry I'd come out to LA in two weeks to see him.
- I can tell you want to give me a note. No, I don't.
- Yeah... I mean, yes, I do, but I guess...
- I guess it doesn't matter now. You won't be with the show anymore. It's stupid. You're not going to be able to sleep until you tell me. [Charlie] Maybe not. Okay, then. [Charlie] So, there are
- at the end, I could tell you were pushing for the emotion. Well, you know I can't cry on stage, and I know you don't like it when I fake it, but... I thought maybe tonight it would come, but...

- - [Nicole] Where? Like here? - Off the head entirely. [Nicole] I have to support his head. No, no, support the head, of course. Just try and do it from the... shoulders?
- - [man 1] It's perfect. - [man 2] Yes, good. I can't hold a baby like this. She's right, that's going to look weird.
- [Dennis] It was very important to me to have this show based on hard science. So we can see your pretty face and not ours. [Nicole chuckles] You should've seen me before the plants invaded. I sa
- I'm going to give you a number. Okay, is it a therapist? Because I have a therapist. Well, it's my mom's therapist. We share her. She's a lawyer. She represented me when I left Dennis. You and
- Sorry, I... look so schleppy. I had an event at my kid's school. Let me get this out of the way. I think you're a wonderful actress. Thank you. I loved All Over The Girl, but the theater stuff

- Where do you want to live now, doll? Well... I'm here now, obviously. [sniffles] I don't know if the show will get picked up, but... it feels like home.
- It is home. It's the only home I've ever known without Charlie. You want to stay here? Charlie's not going to want that. He... He hates LA. We're interested in what you want to do. Sounds to me
- I don't know if it's fair to him.
- What you're doing is an act of hope. Do you understand that? Yeah. You're saying, "I want something better for myself." I do. And this, right now, is the worst time. It will only get better.
- Wasn't it Tom Petty who said "The waiting is the hardest part"? I don't know. - I represented his wife in their divorce. - [sniffles] I got her half of that song. Oh, I don't want any money or a
- We'll do it as gently as possible. [tea pours] Now... [sniffles] Oh. Can you tell me a little more about what's going on? Because part of what we're going to do together is tell your story.
- It's difficult to articulate. It's... not as simple as not being in love anymore. I understand. Why don't you start at the beginning? Wherever that is for you.
- The dead part wasn't dead, it was just in a coma. And... it was better than the sex, the talking. Although the... the sex was also like the talking. You know, everything is like everything in a

- Mmm. Also, I think he slept with the stage manager, Mary Ann.
- - [sighs] - Cassie, you're the server. Just let me practice a few times. I was never a good auditioner. - That's because you wanted it too badly. - It's not an audition. - [Sandra] I'll play Cha
- - Mom! - I'm getting my wine. What? Henry's pooping in the bathroom downstairs. Can we transfer him to the one upstairs? - I think it's mid-poop. - Just grab him when he comes out. - Cassie?
- [door opens] - [Charlie] Hi. - Hi. - [Charlie] Where's Henry? - Uh, he's pooping. Hi, Henry!
- Does this couch still open? Yeah. I got off the plane to a text, but don't tell anyone yet. It's still a secret. Okay.
- - What? - Is he pooping? Oh, uh, downstairs. Is your mom home? Yeah, she's upstairs.
- [knocking] - Hey, how's it going? - [Henry] Nothing yet. - It's me. - [Henry] I know. - I just got here. - [Henry] Hi. - I brought you something. - [Henry] Yay. Mom's getting me a present too
- - I love you. - [Henry] I love you. I don't think we should reward him for pooping anymore. Oh, I know, but he holds it in and it's going on a week. - It's its own reward. G-ma! - [Sandra] Char
- Cassie? Hey, Charlie. I like your haircut. Oh, thanks.
- - [Henry] Mom? - I'll go. [Sandra] Henry's calling you, Nicole! [Nicole] I hear him. [Charlie] What's going on, Henry? [Henry] Can you ask Mom to come?
- - Did you make it? - I don't know. No, it's store bought. You know Joan's on Third? - Oh, yeah. It's good, right? - What? The store? Yeah. Jules and Molly love it. - Are you okay? - Yes. I'm
- Nicole says you're doing a play? [Cassie] I-I think you'd like it. It's a great unproduced play by this really interesting British writer. - So, you do an English accent? - [Cassie] Yeah. - It's
- Jesus. Sorry. You're served.
- - What did you do? - Nothing. I don't know. I can't lie. You're being served. You guys are getting a div... I don't know, I'm sorry.
- [sighs] I was going to warn you so it didn't become a thing. I'm sorry.
- We don't have a marriage anymore. I-I know you don't want the disruption, but you don't want to be married. Not... really.
- But I don't want this. [Nicole scoffs] What did you expect was going to happen?
- I... I don't know, I guess I didn't think it through, but I thought we agreed we weren't going to use lawyers. I want... [sighs] I don't know, I'm trying to say this as undramatically as possibl

- I forgot it ended that way. Yeah, wow, Stuart really overreacted, didn't you think? He was upset about his boat.
- Dad, you go away. Mom, you stay. - Hey, Daddy just got here. - It's okay. Love you.
- You can come back, and wake me up, and read to me later, Daddy, okay? [Charlie] Okay.
- [whispers] Will you come sleep in my bed later? [Nicole] Yeah. [crickets chirping]
- [gasps] Oh. [whispers] Hang in there, Charlie-bird. Thanks, G-ma.
- - He's in a mommy phase right now. - It's okay.
- Whoo! I'm sorry. I drank too much wine. - I can imagine. - And didn't eat dinner. Stressful time. I hope Henry didn't notice. I'm sure he didn't. Now that I'm a parent, I realize my parents w
- Thanks. Where are you staying?
- There's a new hotel on Highland that's... supposedly not too expensive and... and pretty nice. [Charlie] Oh, okay, I'll check it out. [Nicole] Again, that's great about the MacArthur. Thanks.
- [door closes] [Jay] Fuck. - What? - She's being represented by Nora. She's supposedly very fair? All right, here's the fact, Jack. I charge $950 an hour. Ted is 400. If you have a stupid quest
- To start, we'll need a $25,000 retainer. - That's more than I can... - And all your financials. We need to do a forensic accounting. [Jay] Which runs anywhere from ten to twenty thousand dollars.
- "Exit Goat"? Exit Ghost. It's the name of my theater company. You're a director? [Charlie] Theater director, yeah. - Anything I've seen? - I don't know. What have you seen?
- Our production of Electra is moving to Broadway... which is exciting. We have to make sure that money is protected. [Charlie] I mean, it's theater, so it's not a lot of money. I basically put w
- [people chattering] [Frank] I was the hot shit at that time. Young, very sexy, with a great head of hair. I just so appreciate that Charlie gave me this opportunity. Or maybe I should thank Nico
- So, Charlie, what you're going through now is going to be horrible, but it will be over. Thanks, Frank. - Another thing. - Yeah? Fuck as many people as you can right now. Women, men. - Take w
- Full custody? - I mean, that's not even... - [Nora] This is what the law says. Nicole's not going to do that. I mean, she won't. [Nora] No, Charlie, I represent Nicole, and she's aware of everyt
- - [Nicole] Got the booster? - [Charlie] I have a booster.
- Oh, wait, no, it's not in. What's not in? The seat's not connected.
- I asked the rental company to install it. Yeah, I think they can't for liability reasons. - Do you know how these things... - Let me just... If you... - There should be a clip to clip onto. - [N
- - [effort grunts] - [Nicole chuckles] Ow! Fuck! - [Henry] Why "fuck?" - Something sharp. - Can't I stay with Mom? - No. Why not? It's my time with you. I just flew 3,000 miles. I don't want
- I'm sorry, but Jesus, get in the fucking car.
- How do you spell Lego Bionicles? [Charlie] That's two words. What does Lego start with? Just tell me. - Don't you want to learn it? - No. - It's on the box, anyway. - L... Then what? E... You
- - [Charlie grunts] - [automated voice] Please take the ticket.
- [grunts] [door opens] - [Henry] Dad, you're too far. - [Charlie] I know. - [horn honks] - [automated voice] Please take the ticket.
- So, I'm not comfortable leaving the bags in the car where I've given the key to someone I don't really know. I've been here. It's an office building, so you've been to places like this before.
- Oh, okay. I'm sorry. We tried to reach you. Mr. Cohen wanted me to apologize. He can't see you because apparently your wife already met with him on the 7th of August about representation. B-But
- Did you go to a lot of offices with your mom? Not so many.
- It's like a death without a body.
- - What? - [Bert] Well, at least part of her. It doesn't make sense, does it? I mean, you're doing this because you love your kid. And in doing so, you're draining money from your kid's education
- Come! Come! Come! Come! Oh! [laughs] [smooches] You have fun with Daddy? - [Henry] We drove around to offices. - Oh. Do you want to see your ninja costume? It's on G-ma's bed. - Yeah! - Yeah.
- Okay, I'm going to check in at the hotel, but I should be able to get to you guys by 5:00, 5:30... [Nicole] We're going to Cassie's in Pasadena and trick-or-treating with the cousins. Cassie liv

- I'm going to have to go back to New York on Monday. Did you flush?
- Wash your hands. [Henry] Will you play with me? [faucet turns on] I'm tired, honey.
- Did you hear me? I have to go back to New York. [Henry] Ah, watch out! Whoosh! I'm falling!
- [Charlie] Okay? Why aren't you here more?
- - [Charlie continues playing] - I have to work. You know my play is opening on Broadway. Is it because you don't want to be near Mom? [Charlie] No. You know, like we talked about, we both decid
- Did you just stamp your foot? I don't think I've ever done that before. I'm just so angry.
- - You look like you needed one. - [Nicole] Yes, I do, thanks. You know, the Japanese are making really interesting tequila right now. That's exciting, I guess. - What are you so angry about? - M
- - Here's what I want you to only do, okay? - What? - I want you to finger me. - What? - Just finger me. - Okay. That's all we're going to do, just fingering. Okay? I'm changing my whole fuckin
- the Greek salad, but with lemon and olive oil instead of the Greek dressing. Okay. - I'll have the Chinese chicken salad. - [Aamir] Okay, sure. Thank you.
- [inhales] Charlie, is this like the deal that you made that you Nicole would spend more time in LA during your marriage? We didn't have a deal. It was something we discussed. [Charlie] But...
- Sidebar... Nora, do you have a spare office where Charlie and I can sidebar? Sure. - Can you, um... - I can show you. Come on.
- - [inhales] Nora is a very good lawyer. - Uh-huh. - Tough, right? - Yeah. And you're in a bind because you've shown you're willing to fly out here and rent an apartment to see your son. - You t
- But imagine if you were... a poor mother whose husband abandons her, and then refuses to pay anything.
- That's what the system is trying to protect people from.
- I feel like a criminal. [Bert] But you didn't commit any crime. It doesn't feel that way. If we give on LA right now, and then try to make the best deal possible, I think we can get her to give
- Whatever happens here, it's temporary. He's growing up. He's going to have opinions on the subject. Time is on your side, Charlie.
- Maybe he'll do college on the East Coast.
- [Henry] I have most of my coins, like my quarters and dimes at Daddy's... - [Nicole] Right. - ...but I'm keeping my dollars and my one twenty at yours, okay? [Nicole] So, that is one twenty plus
- - [Henry] Can we go see my room? - [Nicole] Yeah, of course. - You tried all the... - I tried everything. Sorry I made you come out. It's fine. - I just... - You don't want your gate open. Rig
- - It's a cute house. - Oh, yeah. I mean, from what I can see. Thanks.
- You're getting shaggy. Yeah, I have to find a hair cutter.
- You want me to cut it? Okay.
- He's out. Maybe he should stay here tonight. It's my night.
- [yelling in Spanish] Hey, come on. We're going. Come on. Let's take a walk. Right? Yeah, we're going to take a walk. - We're taking a walk. - Fine, all right. She's crazy. [Nora] We're mostly fi
- [refrigerator door opens] You don't have anything on the walls? I don't have anything to put on them except Henry's art, which is being framed. I can give you some stuff, you know, until you get
- So... - I thought we should talk. - [Charlie] Mm-hmm. [Nicole] I feel like maybe things have gone too far. Uh-huh. I mean, my mom's taking out a loan against the house to help me pay Nora. [Ch
- That was a joke. - I know. I feel the same way. - [Nicole] Right. So... Maybe we can figure something out between us. You remember I said this to you at the beginning? I know you did, but the
- Do you understand why I want to stay in LA? Well... That's not... Charlie, that's not a useful way for us to start. I don't understand it.
- What does that have to do with LA?
- What? You're so merged with your own selfishness, you don't even identify it as selfishness anymore! You're such a dick! Every day I wake up and I hope you're dead! Dead, like if I could guara
- Okay. No, we can make this nice. Um, I would take the smaller plants and put them by the window. And, uh, do you have things we can put on the walls? [continues inaudibly]
- [chuckles] All right, that's it. Thank you very much. [woman] We miss you, and it looks great, really. - Let us know how it goes, okay? - All right. I'll see you guys on, uh... on Monday. - [wo
- Why do we have so many plants all of a sudden? We'll have to return some of this stuff, so don't get too used to it. I find plants kind of scary. These plants are good guys. Hey, come here.
- I mean, sometimes I go by the glass. You know, it depends. [woman writes notes]
- Did you mean drugs ever? I have done drugs. In college. - [woman] Anything since you've been... - I... I don't do it regularly. [woman] Anything since you've been a mother? [sighs] Pot a few t
- [woman] What would you say are your strengths as a parent?
- I-I put in the time. I... love... taking care of him... watching him grow.
- And sometimes... what they say about "it goes so fast" is true, but... sometimes it's not. Sometimes it goes too slow, honestly. [woman] What are your weaknesses? [sighs] I'm too precise. I car
- Oh. I think I rang the wrong bell. Nancy Katz. Hi, I'm Charlie Barber. Henry's just playing in his room.
- Nancy, can I get you anything? Um, I'm easy. A glass of water?
- [water pours] [inhales] Shall we go in here? Sure.
- Um, what's a day like for the two of you here? Well, if he has school, I take him there, of course, and pick him up, assuming I can do both. What prevents you from picking him up? Um... You kno
- Do you like your school? I love it. [Nancy] What's your favorite part about it? I don't know.
- Maybe gym. [Charlie] You like math. [Henry] Not anymore.
- - Thanks. - You're welcome. - But you're getting really good at it. - [Henry] No. Well, you are, but...
- What do you and your dad like to do together? When I'm at my dad's, we sometimes watch a movie, or build a Lego, or something. My dad's a great Lego builder. [Nancy] And at your mom's? At home,
- - Why are you being like this? - What? If I ask you to help out, help out. - What is this? - Special Meal. What are the green things? There aren't green things in Special Meal. - [Charlie] It's
- Sure I can't get you anything? No, I'm fine, thank you.
- Do the thing with the knife. No, I'm not. Come on. It's not a dinner thing.
- It's not an any time thing. What's the thing with the knife? It's hilarious. No, it's dumb. I have a small knife on my keychain, which is only for adults.
- And I do a thing with it sometimes.
- You said I could get a knife. A jackknife, yeah, when you're older. Like ten. No, like 20. Yeah.
- [Charlie exhales] [Henry] Dime, rime, lime, pime, sime... Honey, stop guessing. You're so close. Stay with it. Ugh, I don't want to do it. - [Charlie] What's the first letter? - I don't want to
- Time. It's time. It's time.
- You'll see, honey. One day, it's just going to click and you'll be able to read everything. I need a break. Can I go play in my room? [Charlie] Sure.
- Do you ever observe married people? No. Why would I? - I was kidding. - Oh.
- The knife thing is... I carry this knife on my keychain, which his mother got me, actually.
- And I do this thing for his mom where I pretend to cut myself, but I retract the blade, but I-I don't do it with him. [Charlie chuckles]
- - That's fine. - Are you okay? Yeah, I must not have retracted the blade all the way. - [Nancy] Do you need... - Yeah.
- Yeah, no, it's fine. What else can I tell you? - Um, I think I have enough. - You have enough? - [Nancy] Are you sure you're okay? - Totally. I'm fine. Uh, well, I'll leave you guys for tonight.
- Thanks. Thank you for the water. - Oh, yeah, sure. - Are you sure you're okay? - Yeah. - [Nancy] Okay. - Bye-bye. - [Charlie] Bye. [struggling]
- [Henry] Dad, are you okay? Yeah, I'm just tired.
- Yeah, she thought we were great.

- Mmm. And... whenever Charlie is in LA, I got the custody breakdown to be 55/45. So you'll have Henry an extra day every two weeks. I thought we made it equal. I tweaked it at the last minute.
- Hi. You look like a guy who really cares about animals. Nope.
- The couch was technically hers, pre-marriage. But I mean... it was our couch. It's not like I was going to buy another couch. But then when it comes time to split, it's suddenly her couch and I
