1VIV: How was your day, dear?
   2ED: Nice tie.
1VIV: I got it for you.
   2ED: Well, my mother was a music teacher … and married my father, whose family was extremely wealthy. Then he divorced my mother to be with another woman. And he took his money with him. And then she died. I was very angry with him. It cost me $10,000 in therapy to say that sentence. I was very angry with him. I do it very well, don’t I? I’ll say it again. I was very angry with him. Hello, my name is Mr. Lewis. I’m very angry with my father.
1VIV: I would’ve been angry at the $10,000.
   2ED: My father was president of the third company I ever took over. I bought it. I sold it off piece by piece.
1VIV: What’d the shrink say?
   2ED: He said I was cured.
1VIV: Well, so you got even. That must’ve made you happy. Did I mention my leg is 44 inches from hip to toe, so, basically, we’re talking about 88 inches of therapy wrapped around you for the bargain price of $3,000. Yeah.
