Darcy McGuire: [voiceover] No games. How do I get that in? She's running. It's early, it's quiet. Just the sound of her feet on the asphalt. She likes to run alone. No pressure, no stress. This is the one place she can be herself. Look any way she wants, dress, think any way she wants. No game playing, no rules. Games, sports, rules. Games, sports, rules. Playing by the rules. Playing games versus playing - Playing by the rules. Playing games versus playing.

Darcy McGuire: Why are you nodding?

Nick Marshall: Because you're onto something.

Darcy McGuire: Am I?

Nick Marshall: Aren't you?

Darcy McGuire: Well, I was thinking about a play on words. Something about games versus - I feel like I was onto something good.

Nick Marshall: Playing games versus playing - sports?

Darcy McGuire: Yes! Thank you. Do you like any of this?

Nick Marshall: A lot. I like the idea that you can be yourself on the road.

Darcy McGuire: I do too.

[V.O.: Did I say that out loud?]

Nick Marshall: [stammering] No, I was just...

Darcy McGuire: 'Cause I was circling around the exact same thing.

Nick Marshall: Which is great, we're on the same - yeah.

Darcy McGuire: Sorry, I'm not thinking straight. My glands may be swollen.

[first lines]

Woman: [voiceover] You know the expression, "a man's man". A man's man is the leader of the pack, the kind of man other men look up to, admire, and emulate. A man's man is the kind of man who - just doesn't get what women are about.

Gigi: Nick, my ex-husband, is the ultimate man's man. I probably never should have married him. I don't think he understood a thing about me.
