[phone ringing]



Honey, honey, honey.


Yeah. Put him on.

Not tonight.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Slow down.

[dramatic music]

He's what?

Sweet mother of God.

His name is Josh Greenberg.

Last week, he tried to kiss a
girl he works with named Rosa.

She turned him down.
Now he wants to text her.

What does the text say?

"You up? Wanna hang?"

I know. His finger's on the button.

Christ. Is he drunk?

They always are.

Your show, McQuade.


My name is Lieutenant McQuade.
I just want to talk.

Well, I'm all done talking, man!

I know you're in a bad
spot. But use your head.

It's 2:00 a.m.
on a Saturday.

How do you think
this is gonna play out?

Rosa's gonna read that
text as a booty call

and think you're creepy.

Hey! Don't come any closer!

I'll send it. I swear
to God I'll send it.

Okay, okay, okay! You're
in control, brother.

You're in control.

Snipers in position.

[suspenseful music]

We got a clear shot.


Hold your fire.

Let me try something.

I put down mine. You
want to put down yours?

No way, man!

That's... that's fine. That's okay.

I'm just gonna come a little
bit closer so we can talk.

I think you and me might have
got off on the wrong foot.

How 'bout we start over, huh?

You went to North Evanston High, right?


I've got a couple buddies from there.

Go, Wolverines!

Yeah, go, Wolverines.

Good! Now we're talking. This is good.

You like sports, Josh?


I like sports.

Football, basketball.

I played some back in college.
I even thought about going pro.

But my problem was, I was just never...

fast enough!


[both grunting]


[cell phone blips]

- Yeah.
- [sighs]

I guess I probably shouldn't
have sent that text, huh?

[downtempo electronic music]




[exhales sharply]

Rosa the Riveter!

Top of the morning to you!

Did you happen to receive the group text

I sent over the weekend or...

Oh. Um.

So "You up? Wanna
hang?" was a group text?

Yeah, yeah, no, I was merely asking

the group I was texting if they were up

for attending a hockey
game this weekend.

Oh, see, I thought I
was the only recipient...

Who else is in the group?

Uh, Mike, my friend Mike.

Oh! Your friend Mike.

You know Mike?

Well, yeah, I met him at
the food truck, remember?

- Oh. Yeah.
- Yeah.

So Mike's going to the hockey game?


Okay, I mean, I enjoy hockey.

Oh, good.

- Yeah!
- Yeah.

That sounds fun. Thanks
for organizing this!

- Jesus, all right.
- So sweet.

Cool, thanks.

Dude, I'm psyched Rosa's coming.

Yeah, this is, uh... this will be good.

Hey, you guys!

Both: Hey!

Hey, Rosa, nice to see you again.

It's nice to see you
too. What's up, Josh?

Hey, hey.

- Uh
- Oh! Check it out!

No way!

Yeah, what are the odds, right?

I mean, everyone walking in
is wearing that jersey, so...

Josh, take our picture!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, we got
to get this on the 'Gram.

- ♪Twins!
- Yes, hashtag, and...

Yay. Awesome!

Here you go.

- Damn, we look hot. Mm.
- Oh, my God.

Sexy. Oh, yeah, send that one to me.

Okay. Oh, yeah, what's your number?

Oh, it's, um, 847...

- 555...
- Mmhmm?



They said you could pick
whatever number you want

at the store.

I love that!

What have you been up to, dude?

Oh, this and that, staying busy.

- Oh, he's got them.
- Yeah, I got them.

- He's got the tickets.
- All right!

[crowd roaring]

[buzzer blares]

Rosa, hey!

I call middle seat!

Rosa! Rosa!

I call middle seat!

- Oh, pardon me, sir.
- Jesus.

- Yeah!
- Sorry. Okay.

I'm trying to... All right.

Yeah, I know, just...

Sorry. I know. I'm sorry.

This might sound stupid, but
every time I watch hockey,

I think of Casey Jones.

- From the Ninja Turtles?
- Yeah!

Me too, dude!

I totally had a nine-year-old
boner for April O'Neil.

I had an eight-year-old
boner for Raphael,

because he's cool but rude!




Pi... the Ninja Turtles
love pizza, remember?

They ate pizza.

Oh, yeah, right, right, totally.

- They ate pizza.
- Totally. Totally.

Now it's time for the Kiss Cam!


Oh, my gosh! Oh!

Crowd: Kiss! Kiss! Kiss!

Oh, my gosh!

- I guess we have to.
- Yeah.

You don't have to. You don't have to.

Both: Mwah.

[buzzer blares]


Hey! You guys remember Thundercats?

That was another cartoon that existed.

Now it's time for the Kiss Cam!

- Uh-uh.
- What? Again?

Crowd: Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! Kiss!

Oh, my gosh!

Oh, for [bleep] sake, what?

I guess we have to.

- [laughs]
- No.

[crowd cheering]

[buzzer blares]

Wow. Ooh, nice lips too.

- Thanks!
- Hey, will you move?

- I'm sorry?
- Can I... can I sit here?

I'm having... uh... I
need... can't see the, uh...

Can I... can I switch seat... Yeah?

- Oh, all right.
- Thank you. Thank you.

- Sorry.
- No, you're welcome.

- Hey.
- All right.


- Good game.
- Yeah.

Once again, it's time for the Kiss Cam!


It's like... it's like, my
God, man, like, mix it up.

Crowd: Kiss! Kiss!
Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! Kiss!

I'm sick of this bit.

How did they do that?

It's a conspiracy!

- Well, I guess we have to!
- You don't!

Crowd: Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! Kiss!

[buzzer blares]

[crowd cheering]

Mm. Mm.

[laughs] Whoo!

Whoo. [laughs]


I think... I don't feel so good.

I think I'm gonna split.

- Oh, no.
- What, really?

Yeah, I got to... got to... uh, yep.

I think you guys should just stay put.

- What are you talking about?
- Stay put.

No, I'm not, uh... Yeah,
you guys do your thing.

- All right.
- No, no, it's fine. It's fine.

- What are you doing?
- I guess I'll sit here again.

Now it's time for the Lonely Cam!

[crowd cheering]

Are you f... Really, man? What is that?

I think you're supposed
to masturbate and cry.

I'm supposed to what?

Crowd: Masturbate and
cry! Masturbate and cry!

Guess you have to.

[buzzer blares]

It's, like, yet another mission

where I have to take
some guy's barrel for him

from one part of the city
to another part of the city.


It's just like, I bought
that game because

I want to be an assassin,
not a barrel courier.

You know what I mean?

What's up? Yeah, totally.

No, I... I'm sorry.

I've been meaning to talk
to you about something.

Oh, yeah, what, uh, what... what's up?

It's, uh... it's about Rosa.

Ah, Rosa, yes.

What... what about Rosa?

We've been kind of hanging out.

- Mm-kay.
- And nothing has happened yet.

- Uh-huh.
- Whatsoever, um.

But I think there's something
really special between us.

What? Amazing!

That's so neat. Are you sure, though?

Just 'cause Rosa's very particular...

- I'm sure.
- Yeah, wicked.

I know you used to have
a thing for her, and, um,

before we get any further,
just wanted to check

to make sure that you're cool with it.

Aw, Mike, Michael!

I... I appreciate that, but yeah.

I'm cool with it.



Okay, Josh, but honestly,
if you are not cool with it,

just say so, and I'll nip
the whole thing in the bud.


I'm cool with it, man. I really am.

I'm cool with it.

- Well, good night!
- Good night, man.

[whispering] All right,
come on, this way.

Mr. Cranky Pants is not a showbiz fan.

- It's 3:00 in the morning!
- Okay, come on.

[grumbling] Jesus.

Knock, knock. Sorry, uh...

The door... the door, um, is
it locked from the outside?

Does someone lock you in every night?


'Cause we're having a
hell of a time opening...

Just push it! Push it. It's a door.

- Is it a push-and-lift?
- I'm so tired, man!

- Push-and-lift?
- I don't know!

- Okay, fine.
- It's a door.

I'm tired, please.

You know, you [bleep] live here, so...

You've been in here a million times.

I live here. Jesus Christ, man.

So is it... is it a push-and-lift?

Come on!

Did, um... did Mike send
you that Evite that he made

for Rosa's birthday party with the...

with the Ninja Turtles?

It was so cute.

Yeah, yeah, he sent it
to me. I received it.

You gonna go?

Ah, meh, I don't know.


What do you want? They're a couple.

They're, like, actually a couple now.

And, uh,

I know I'm supposed to
be cool with it, but, uh,

yeah, it's hard... it's hard
for me to be around them.

Yeah, no, totally. I get that.

- Can I give you some advice?
- Oh, shit.

Yeah, do it.

The only way you're gonna get over Rosa

is to try to find someone new.

Yeah, maybe you're right.

[bass music thumping]

It was so, so, so fun.

And then, on the drive
home, we found a dude

selling fireworks on
the side of the road.

I bought the biggest one.

It's called the Teddy Blows-evelt.

Gonna set it off at midnight
to celebrate this little cutie.

Wow, Mike, this is a really...

this is a really awesome party.

- This is a really awesome lady.
- Babe!

Hey, baby.

What's up, party people?

Oh, good, you made it.

Actually, we made it.

[dramatic musical sting]

Liz, meet my new girlfriend, Bosa.

Bosa? Nice to meet you.

[guttural groan]


[laughs] Isn't she great?

[softly] Yeah.

- Let's go get a drink.
- Yeah, you got it.

- Yeah.
- Stay put.

Don't eat any garbage.

- Okay, Josh...
- Yes?

Doesn't Bosa remind you of someone?

Huh. Uh, Dame Angelina Jolie?

- She looks a lot like Rosa.
- She looks nothing like Rosa.

- Josh!
- Dr. Orloff?

Your Rosa clone is malfunctioning.

I tried to create what you asked.

But she's a monster.

I'm so sorry.

- Josh!
- Yeah?

- Really?
- What?

Okay, I know you're stuck on Rosa,

but cloning her is not the solution.

I am not stuck on Rosa.

That's always been my type:
brown hair, brown eyes,

genetic sequence AAAAAGCTGCCCTAAAA.

Look, the point is, we're really happy.

[labored breathing]




No, no, no, no. No, no,
oop, oh, okay, no, no.

- No, no, no.
- [snarling]

- Yield!
- [snarls]


Can I get a whiskey, please?

Hold up! Yo! Listen up, everybody.

I just want to say something real quick.

And I am not just saying this
because it's her birthday.

But, Rosa, you are the kindest,

smartest, funniest, sexiest babe

I have ever met.

Crowd: Aww!

So here's to my little Choo-Choo

from your big ol' loose caboose.

Happy birthday, Rosa.

All: Happy birthday, Rosa!

Happy birthday.


Whoa, Josh, Josh!

[slurring] Wait, wait, wait, whoa, whoa.

[clattering on glass]


Today is also my girlfriend's birthday!


She was born this
morning in a centrifuge!

And she loves me, and I love her,

and everybody loves her.

So from... to my... to my, uh,

hoppy, floppy bunny rabbit

from... from your
chunky little carrot man,

happy birthday, Bosa!

[all mumbling] Happy birthday, Bosa.

Kill me.

There's a lot to love about Bosa,

and I don't just mean her
pretty face or her giant hand.

And... and... and I'll tell you

the thing I like about her the most:

she's definitely not the kind of person

that would go out with your best friend

after giving you every indication

that she wanted to kiss you.

All right. Good speech, bro.

Thanks, bro! Radical!

Catch a wave, dude!

Hey, Josh! It's not cool, man.

Oh, really, was it not? Was it not cool?

Was it not cool? Well,
I'll tell you something.

What you guys are
doing isn't cool either.

We asked, and you said
you were cool with it.

What was I supposed to say?

I'm leaving.


Oh my God! She's got a firework!

She's got a what?

The Teddy Blows-Evelt. Get down!

[firework explodes]

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

Good night, sweet clone.

- I'm so sorry, Josh.
- Ah, it's okay.

She really hated being alive.


So long, Bosa X.

Bosa X?

Oh, yeah, she's the one you met.

The, uh... the rest of them
didn't really work out so good.


So, uh, what's gonna happen
with you and Mike and Rosa?

I don't know; they're
still pretty angry at me,

which I understand.

My behavior was less than perfect.

Yeah, they'll get over it.

And guess what. So will you.

What about me?

Ah! Dr. Orloff.

I will never get over my
crimes against God and nature.

I put shame upon myself
and all of science.

Why did you do it if
you hate it so much?

For money. Word of advice.

Do not send your kids
to private schools.

Yeah. Yeah.

Listen, guys, let's...
let's go get a beer.

- That's a good idea.
- Yeah. I'll pay.

I'm not having beer right now.

I'm on this low-carb thing.

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, right.

Well, I'm sure they can,
yeah, find something for you.

Yeah, we'll... yeah.

Thanks, guys. You really
are my best friends.
