House on the Left

In House on the Left, Sharon surprises her husband by telling him she is leaving for a month long vacation in order to save their marriage.

SHARON:  June twelfth is the day. I have to go into town at some point and pick up new clothes for this trip. Tabitha has it all planned, you should see the kinda places she’s mapped out for us, these little pilgrimages with those cobbled streets and old coffee houses, the kind of places we’d daydream about.

I took out a chunk from my savings account, packed my luggage this morning and made the decision once and for all I’m going or leaving you, it’s one or the other. It’ll be good for us, Bruce. We’ve been together for, for, well, LONG ENOUGH!

…You’re here day in and day out and with you being home so much I’m at the end of my tether. If I leave the house, you’re already asking me when I’ll be back, how much of my time do you need? I don’t want to have to answer to you Bruce, as to where the hell I’m going or where on Earth I’m going to be! I’ve told you this a million times, of how sick it makes me! How’d you like it if I did that to you? If I clocked you in and clocked you out?! Don’t you see, I’m just about ready to throw myself off a cliff! I can’t think of anything other than just being away from you at this point.

..I know it can’t just be me, it’s not all in my mind, I know you feel down about us too. I’ll, I’ll come back different, I know I will, I just need some time. Besides, you will have all the time you need to spend with Max, that boy needs you. Be there for him, try to bond with him, be a father to him. It’s an entire month, not long..but long enough.
