Woman: You know, when I first discovered the lump I just knew it was something, you know?

Even though the doctor told me I had fibrous breasts.

Yeah, a double mastectomy later, I learned how to trust my gut.

Maura: That's terrifying.

You know, it was really hard, you know.

I was sick as a dog.

But enough about me. [Sighs]

They lopped off my tits. So what, right?

Mm. Do you want a showery or a bathy?

Are you a showery or a bathy?

I'm a showery.

I used to be a showery.

But I... I'm becoming a bathy.

Okay, um...

Are you comfortable sharing a room? I am.

Yeah, I guess you could say I'm NATO.

What is NATO?

Not Attached to Outcome.

Well, that's very pretty.

What is this?

It's a bracelet.

Is that real turquoise?

It is.

Thank you.


Want to spoon?

Am I the spooner or the spoonee?

You're the spoonee.

That's good.

You like to be spooned?

I do.

Your heart's beating pretty fast.


Is this rude?

No, it's good.

Get in.

Come on, it's so warm.

You guys high?

Not anymore. [Laughs]

Sarah: Come in, come in, come in.

All right.



f*ck, that hurt!

Did that hurt?

Did it?

Oh, my God!


You guys think that the beginning of the end of the Pfeffermans was, like, the day we stopped swimming in this pool?

There was an actual day?

It was like a summer.

I remember that.

That was the summer I got my period.

And I was wearing maxi pads.

And I wanted to come in with you guys but I wouldn't.

And then, like, two months later, the, um... the, uh, pool guy quit.

Unrelated to your period.

[laughs] Yes, unrelated to my period.

Why would it be related to my period?

Sounded like it was related.


No. It was a coincidence.

The pool guy quits.

Then the pool fills up with leaves, and goes fully leafy for two whole years.


Because no one will scoop it.

Ali: Yeah, the bottom got all gray and green and brown.

And copper.

Sarah: It was, like, slick.

You could slide on it.

Oh, my God, doesn't this feel amazing?

I actually do feel like I kind of turned a corner out there in the woods.

I'm thinking that, I don't know, maybe I'm just gonna, like, look into religion, God or get my goddess on.


No, seriously.

I'm actually thinking about, like, looking into Judaism more, and finding out, you know, my spiritual mojo.

Oh, Judaism.

Just, you know... you gotta promise me...

Woman: [on TV] I could not have got a... a better space for myself.

I like this, too. Who'd have thought of that?

Man: Sure, I mean, I really was feeling, like, one of the most important things that we could use this space for...

Can I have this?


Woman: I want to start doing work right now.

Man: And all your medical books would be stored on the bookshelf.

In fact, there's a ton of storage space.

See, under... under here...

Woman: Oh, I see that.

Man: Right, so you have nice little storage area here in the ottoman.

Bring it inside. Open up this big panel...

I had this recurring dream that I have a finite amount of time.

It's like I have one hour, and in that hour I have to say goodbye to someone I love who is about to die, and I have to say it perfectly.

Because it's so important.

And every time I look at the clock, the clock ticks forward one more minute, and that is one minute that I have lost.

I don't even know who it is It might be my mom. I have no idea.

What's she like?

My mom?


My mo...

I haven't seen my mom in a while.

I mean, I'm embarrassed to say.

Go on, say.

I haven't seen my mom in three years.

Was it because she didn't support your transition or...

No, it was different things.

I mean... she's never seen me... as Maura.

Would you come with me?

To see my mom?

Going to see peoples' parents is just...

It's too intimate.

It's kind of weird.

Big change.

Plus, I'm still recovering from Idlewild.

[chuckles] Is that normal?

Uh, well, you know, it kind of depends on the year.

I mean, sometimes the Idlewild hangover can take a few days, and sometimes it can take a few weeks, and then my Red Bull budget, man, just goes right... right through the roof.

Is Maura okay?

I don't know.

I think she will be.



Yeah, I just, I guess...

Wish I'd known. You know?

About the divisiveness in that whole community.

Yeah, well, I... [clears throat]

I would have told you if... if you'd told me that night you were bringing her.

Yeah. But it actually kind of relates to what I've been thinking about, you know, this whole pain and anxiety that's just been passed down through the generations, and not just the Holocaust, or the pogroms or the Jew shoes, it's just sort of more like, uh... like metaphorical Holocaust.

Of course. I mean... I think so. I mean, is it... It's not really my business, right?

Yeah, it is.

Well, anyway, I'm sorry.

It was an accident, though. Like, I didn't mean to take it.

I was just admiring it, and then it fell...

Anyway, I'm sorry.

Well, did you get a gift receipt?


Melanie, uh...

Ditched me.

What do you mean? She's, like, gone?

She said something about she thought that she rushed into this relationship, or that I might just be too boring for her.

What? What a bitch.

You're not boring.

[sighs] It's just a bummer. It's like...

Well, I'm sorry.


Nothing's adding up.

It's like I thought stuff would add up by now, but it's like everything's slipping through.

Can I say something?


Well, it... it seems pretty clear to me that, uh... you're in shock.

I am?


About what?

Well, lots of things, but mostly I'd say the loss of your father.

What do you mean?

Joshua, your father died.

I mean, I see Mop all the time.

You know.

I mean, when somebody dies, you can't really see them, so...

Maura is not Mort.

Yeah, but I... I did not like him.


Why, you think I still miss Mort?

What do you think?

Well, it's like politically incorrect to say that you miss someone who has transitioned, so...

This isn't about correct.

Joshua, this is...

This is about grieving. Mourning.

Have you grieved and mourned the loss of your father?

Him? Like losing him?

No, I'm... I don't know how to do that.
