in front of the espositos. that will be fine. who are they? i'm designing their guest house. i'm delivering their plans this afternoon. how about now? we could talk. sweetheart, i've got to sleep. i'll come with you. maybe you'll talk in your sleep. how about tonight? we could get together and go over old times. i can't see any flaws in that plan. i'll see you tonight. i'll call gus, tell him i'm coming in. good luck getting jennifer off the pho--
i'm sorry i scared you. did you think i was somebody else? no. i knew it was you. these are for you. oh, steven. thank you. so how was your day? well, let's see... the espositos decided against a guest house. they want a greenhouse. it seems they have more plants than friends. then i came home, and alex and mallory were still arguing, and jennifer was on this six-hour phonathon with krissie. today's high point was when andrew spit up on me. at least we're alone now. honey, it's so nice to have a quiet moment with you. [telephone rings]

ise. i can't believe we're here. i can't either. they're all grown-ups. i never thought i'd be with grown-ups again. it's nice, isn't it? we won't have to tell them to get off the phone. or settle their arguments. they don't need to be burped, either. honey. sorry. it's none of my business. i'm glad we're here, and i'm not worried about andrew. he's over his cold. let's not talk about the baby tonight. let's talk about us. forget we even have a baby. what baby? are you ready to order? oh, yes. i'll have the baby lamb chops, the baby lima beans,
en's menu? we'll have grown-up lamb chops and whatever grown-up food goes with it. right. two orders-- grown-up chops. thank you very much. oh, here. thank you. where were we? i don't remember, but we weren't discussing the baby. no baby talk tonight! i mean, uh... no baby talk tonight. oh! elyse. you are a cutie. hi. hello.
i know. he's coming down with a cold. our son has a cold, too. well, here. let me show you pictures of our boy. there. oh, that's great. oh, he is beautiful. elyse, let's leave these people to their dinner. oh, no. that's fine, really. let me show you pictures of little roger. isn't he here? but he's a little grumpy. he looks much better in the pictures. elyse, remember, we said we wouldn't talk-- you have that picture of andy in the baseball cap? oh, there it is. are you ready to order? no, thanks. we've already ordered. oh. of course. you haven't. sorry. enjoy your dinner. take the pictures. you'll love them. here. look at andy's pictures. oh. ok. sorry, steven.
you've got to control yourself. it's out of my system. well, i hope so. let's just enjoy this time alone together. ok. excuse me. where are you going? to the men's room. i'll be right back. hi, jennifer. it's me. your father. dinner's going fine. thank you. listen...what? i don't care if you're expecting an important call. i won't keep it brief. listen, how's andrew? has he been sneezing at all? you sure? because if his cold's acting up,
no! no, i don't want a free dance lesson! and i'd appreciate it if you wouldn't interrupt my dinner again! i tried to be a nice guy by answering a pay phone, and look what happens. why did you hang up? i'm sorry. did you want a free dance lesson? well, how was andrew? he's fine. elyse, i figured out what went wrong tonight. oh? it's very simple, really. we each have careers which consume lots of our time and energy, and our three children are wonderful, but they're also very loud and demanding. moreover, we have a baby who is very beautiful, but also very loud and demanding and who occupies every last moment of our remaining time and energy. tonight we tried escaping all that.
that's encouraging. but it's true, elyse. we can remove ourselves physically from all this, but not emotionally. this is our life. we're trapped in it. you make it sound like a science fiction film. it's not such a bad life, is it? no. it's a great life. we have to accept the fact that our life has changed, that we're parents. we have fo--four children, and we enjoy it, ll andrew goes to college. i accept that. hi. i apologize for talking on the phone so much lately. it's ok, honey. for some reason, i'm talking about boys a lot more than i used to. we've noticed. it's just a phase. it will pass. [telephone rings]
if it's for me, tell him i'll see him in school. [ring] hello. well, no. no, i'm sorry, adam-- dad, don't! hi, uh, adam? uh, can i call you right back? ok. bye. this is the last phone call i will ever make. thanks. good night. hey, hey. how you doing? oh, not bad. not bad. you guys haven't been able to spend much time together, and we're probably the reason why not. so we just wanted to say we're sorry and, you know, all that stuff.
l that stuff. if andrew cries tonight, we'll take care of it. yeah. yeah. that's right. if andrew cries tonight, mallory will take care of it. right. it's too quiet, steven. oh, come on, elyse. let's enjoy this. this is what we wanted, isn't it? what do you want to do? i don't know. what do you want to do? well, i have a vague recollection of you and me being in bed together. oh, yeah, that. i think i remember. i think we're falling asleep, elyse.
