DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
SO Marty’s broken up with the only girlfriend he’s had since his divorce and sure, he paid for her initially but he liked her by the end, and his son Roscoe really did. Which is why Roscoe’s not speaking to him now, and why Marty – who is after all a management consultant, one step up from a Republican congressman, basically – is torturing Roscoe into a response with all sorts of cruel taunts. Such as: Nicky Minaj strangles puppies. It’s not working. They’re both talking through Marty’s re-enlightened father, a shrink, who tells him Roscoe needs time to ‘‘ individuate’’. Oh yeah, and there’s stuff on at Marty’s work. Major.
