What I love about Nicole. She is a mother who plays,
really plays. What I love about Charlie. He loves being a dad.
He loves the things you’re supposed to hate,
like waking up at night. She knows when to push me,
when to leave me alone. He never lets other people
keep him from what he wants to do. -Dad, you’re too far.
-I know. It’s not easy for her
to close a cabinet. -He’s incredibly neat.
-She’s brave. He’s brilliant. -She’s very competitive.
-He’s very competitive. So, I’ll tell Charlie
what’s happening, and Cassie, you then
hand him the envelope. I just get nervous. Well, can you un-serve? You mean like take it back? Charlie and I
are getting a divorce, Mom. You can’t be friends with him
-Charlie-bird! Mom. Mom? What? You know, most people
in my business, you’re transactions to them.
I like to think of you as people. Oh, okay, good. You remind me of myself
on my second marriage. Part of what we’re gonna do
together is tell your story. -Did you dye your hair again?
-No, this is me. You don’t like it? Is it shorter?
I prefer it longer, but… How are you doing? I realized I didn’t ever really
come alive for myself. I was just feeding
his aliveness. I’ll never get to really be
his parent again. He needs to know
I fought for him. It’s not as simple
as not being in love anymore. Eventually, it’ll be
the two of you having to figure this out… together. If we start
from a place of reasonable, and they start
from a place of crazy, when we settle, we’ll be somewhere
between reasonable and crazy.
