Maybe they are people brought together by their love of cactus. They have a lot of cactus in that apartment, that's what they talk about. It's a FRIENDS (OF CACTUS) show really.

Sometimes I talk to myself when my husband is away. Like I'll say, "Wow, people totally stopped having bonsai trees." And I'll say back, "They sure did!" Just a little thing I do to keep my spirits up when I am lonely.

I’m in a cafe in Brady, TX. Row of pickups outside. This isn’t the sort of town where I can safely pee. Two cowboys at the next table are talking about the detention centers. One is openly weeping. The other guy’s just picking fries up and dropping them back on his plate.

I still often assume other people despise me for the same reasons I despise myself and am surprised when it turns out they can't remember who I am.

Some of his opponents respond with rage, just tearing their hair out with rage, their faces all red, just beside themselves with rage. Kicking rocks. Screaming, "I am so angry right now!"

And when I say "the Democrats," I mean it's really that broad. They gave my phone number to every Democratic campaign in the country.

It's still in pre-production, so there is still time to give Fonda's role to Scott Baio.
