FEMALE SPEAKER: You‘re not dressed? You‘re going to be late for work.
MALE SPEAKER: I‘m not going to work. I‘m sick.
FEMALE SPEAKER: Of courseyou‘re sick. You‘re hungover. Idon’t want the
boys to see you like this. Go back to bed.
MALE SPEAKER: See me like what? I told you, I’m sick.
FEMALE SPEAKER: Well, what do you call it when someone is sick almost
every morning, because they drink every night while they sit in the dark watching
MALE SPEAKER: You calling me a drunk?
FEMALE SPEAKER: What do you call it?

Levy Family: Episode 2
FEMALE SPEAKER: I want to thank you for getting me this Levy case. I think it’s
so interesting. Just can’t wait to meet with the client.

I might be interested in.
FEMALE SPEAKER: I mean, Iwasn’t saying it like that. I always think of my

youseen any research or data that measures how effective they are in
FEMALE SPEAKER: No.
MALE SPEAKER: Neither have I. There may be good research out there, and
maybe one or two of the treatments that you mentioned might be really good
ideas. I just want to point out that you should meet your client first, meet Jake
before you make any decisions about how to address his issues. Make sense?
FEMALE SPEAKER: Yeah.
