AILEEN: So, I think we should move. Don’t you think? We could get a house on the beach. I got it covered. Cause you know what? I’ve been thinking about it and yer right – we don’t have enough money! And s—, I don’t want you slavin’ away at some job. So, I got a plan. And it’s taken care of! 95%! We’re movin’ to the Keys. Drink, party, have friends over. I’ll even be nice. Why? Cause I got a job! Whatta you think? I’m… sorry, for how things’ve been… (quiet – difficult) I just love ya. And I’m trying real hard. But it’s not easy. Nobodies ever stuck with me this long… Or loved me, really. I’m not good at it. But I’m getting better! So, we moving?
