Mort has a secret that he really wants to tell his three adult children, who are so self-absorbed they don't see that something has changed for divorced, girlfriendless dad. Even when he invites them to dinner en masse to share his news, somehow, the conversation becomes about them. The secret unfolds, though, when he comes home and sees his married daughter getting intimate with her ex. Now, he knows her secret; she learns his; and the dysfunctional family finds one secret after another being exposed.
Did You Know?
Amy Landecker told the Daily Beast site how she was once mortified when a friend started talking about one of Landecker's nude scenes in the show in front of her 11 year old daughter. The friend was monologuing her indignation--"Full-frontal, Sarah? How could you do that?"--and her kid was in earshot for the whole thing. Landecker went into mom mode, calmly explaining the circumstances of the scene to her daughter, hoping to justify and/or stave off further embarrassment: Her character in the show, at that point, had been divorced, had a lesbian affair, got divorced again, and was on an unsettling chute careening toward rock bottom. She was explaining to her daughter that the moment illustrates how bleak the circumstances were for Sarah, who is filmed naked and alone, cooking and eating a sad meal in the kitchen. Her daughter interrupted: "Wait, wait, wait. You were cooking?" Landecker erupts into a cackle as she tells the story. "Like, that was what was shocking." See more
