Keeping the Faith

And when lovers bore, which they
will, sublimate. I take classes.

Me too. I'm addicted to it.
What's your favourite?

- Kabbalah. You?
- Kickboxing.

Oh, I used to take kickboxing, but I
don't know, I found it too high-impact.

So I take Tae-Bo now. It's doubled my
energy. You really ought to try it.

- Yeah. I need that high impact though.
- Yeah, I know what you mean.

- I take Native American drumming.
- You take Tae-Bo?

Oh, look at those pomegranates, huh?
Oh, Our Lady's Bedstraw.
The most poetic herb.

All right, now over to you. Anybody
new in your life I should know about?

Wow, 20 minutes.
I can't believe we made it this far.

It's my God-given right to check.
Now, what about that Shapiro girl?

- Oh, no, not the Shapiro girl
again, please.
- Why? She was a looker.

- That wasn't the problem.
The problem was here.
- What, bad skin?

- No, not bad skin.
- What?

Okay, all right, you want an example?
I take her out to dinner, I order
dessert, she says she doesn't want any.

So I get pecan pie.
She asks me for a bite.

I give her a bite.
Her face swells up like a chipmunk.

She looks at me and she goes,
"Oh, my God, are there nuts in this?"

- So what?
- Mom, it was pecan pie.

- Oh, there must be somebody
for you. Come on.
- Oh, no, I don't even want

- Oh, come on. Tell her.
- I don't want to talk about it.

- He's got a very hot prospect.
- Oh? Who? Who?

Rachel Rose! Okay? Rachel Rose.
That's who I'm going out with.

- ABC Rachel Rose?
- Yes, ABC Rachel Rose.

Well, I think I could be in-laws
with ABC Rachel Rose. Hmm?
Peter Jennings would be at the wedding!

Hey, hey, speaking of in-laws,
Ethan and Jackie took me to see her
mom's new play, and it was hilarious.

- How is Ethan?
- He's great. He just got a promotion.

He's a vice president now.
- They gave him Dad's old office.
- Oh.

How nice.
I gotta hear this from you.

- Hey, maybe if you called
and congratulated him--
- I don't want to talk about it.

- Mom, he would be so happy
to hear from you. Just--
- Please, Jake, please.

Don't spoil this, huh?
I got you. I'm proud of you.
