At Lily and Billy’s place, they discuss his ongoing insomnia. He insists it’s just a phase and sends her off to bed by herself. Once alone, he says aloud, “What the hell is going on with you?” Billy searches for articles about how to get a good night’s sleep online. He learns stressful thoughts could be behind his issue and that the article suggests processing and reflecting on his thoughts or meditating. Billy picks up a recorder and begins talking. He asks, “What are you?” He’s a man who had everything and lost almost everything. He got most of it back except for sweet, baby girl Delia. He wonders if he’s learned anything from his past mistakes. Billy worries that he can’t break free of who he really is. “Can that be who I used to be?” He tells himself that he’s both the analyst and the man on the couch. There’s no sugar-coating it or lying to himself.
