Hannah realizes that Sid cannot live in Los Angeles even if he gives his everything to settle in the city for her. She knows that her husband is a New Yorker through and through and there’s nothing he or she can do to change it. Therefore, instead of letting Sid make a compromise concerning their future, Hannah makes one. She decides to move to New York City so that Sid can live in the city where belongs rather than live miserably in Los Angeles. She makes it clear to him that he shouldn’t worry about “crushing the Los Angeles thing” anymore since she has changed her mind about setting up a new home in the city.
