Beth: I don’t know what to say. After everything that’s happened today, this is the last thing we should’ve done…
Pau: Today was a good day that started with eggs and orange juice. Tonight we will be playing the Washington Wizards. They are tough competitors but I’m looking forward to the challenge.
Beth: Oh. That’s nice. What about our son? So you were just going to go off and leave us here? Was that your plane?!
Pau: My plan was to exercise and eat many vegetables in preparation for the upcoming road trip that starts tonight. I am hoping to get a victory for the fans.
Beth: Damn it! Are you hearing yourself? I don’t even know you anymore…

Beth: What does that even mean? I’ve tried everything! This has been the most stressful thing I’ve ever been a part of!
Pau: I understand. I am a part of a team that is struggling but continues to fight. I am thankful for my teammates and their commitment.
Beth: You’ve never had confidence in us, have you? No… you were always scared, you coward!
Pau: I have always been afraid of the Stanley Kubrick film entitled The Shining. Jack Nicholson is someone I admire.
Beth: And where will you go?
Pau: Off to Washington. We will be playing the Wizards who I respect very much. It is important to start the road trip with a victory.
Beth: Wait… What about tomorrow? Will I see you tomorrow?!
Pau: Tomorrow, we will be playing the Indiana Pacers who have been playing very well. It will be a tough match-up but will fight until the end.
