MY MOM'S JEWISH, MY DAD'S IRISH-CATHOLIC ALCOHOLIC, YOU KNOW?

OH, ONE, OKAY.

ONE HONEST PERSON IN HERE.

I NEVER HAD A THERAPIST BEFORE

SO I'M NEVER QUITE SUREIF IT'S A GOOD THERAPIST.

THERE'S NO ONETO COMPARE HER TO.

I THINK, "MAYBE SHE'SCRAZIER THAN ME," YOU KNOW?

I DON'T KNOW,DOES YOUR THERAPIST

( laughter )

YEAH, I GOT IN THERE,THERE'S A HELIUM TANK.

AND I GO, "WHAT'S THE TANK?"

I THOUGHT MAYBE SHE JUST LIKEDTO TALK FUNNY ONCE IN A WHILE.

"OH, I HAVE A BALLOON BUSINESS."

( resignedly: )"GREAT."

IN THE BACK OF MY HEAD I HEAR--

( laughter )

SHE SAYS, "MARGARET, RELAX

I'M THINKING,"YEAH, AND IT'S A TRAIN."
