"I am taking this serious, Rachel. I agreed to come. I know that we need this. Please stop implying that I don’t care."
"You didn’t seem very attentive, is all I’m saying," she says. "We’re paying a ridiculous amount of money to air our dirty laundry, the least you could do is pretend to be interested, I mean, that’s what we’re paid to do, isn’t it, every day, pretend, we’re so good at that—"

You’ve been dropping that sentiment all week and frankly, it’s gone well beyond tedious.” He jerks the car into gear and exits the parking lot, knuckles white around the steering wheel. “I get it, okay?
