Oh, oh.



[playing rock]

How's it going, man?

- Good.
- Good, good.

- How are you?
- Great, great.

- Young Daniel.
- How are you, sir?

- Good, man. How you doing?
- Good, good.



- Whoops!

Is it all gone?

[gasp, laughs]

You are drunk.

I got a full cup now.

Mnh. Can you give me
a ride home?

I didn't drive here.

I'm going to Dan's now.

That's okay, you can just
drop me off on the way.

No, you're not
on the way to Dan's.

You're on the way to my place.

Yes, I am.

I mean, it would be
so much easier

if I just lived with Dan.

Okay, well, fuck you.
You're giving me a ride home

because there's no one
else at this party.

[sputtering laugh]

So serious.
Will you listen to me!

I'm trying to have
a serious conversation.

You never listen to me.

- Oh, really?
- I'm gonna marry Dan

and have his babies
by the time I'm 26.

Oh, yeah? Well, does Dan
know about this marriage?

Do you know... Do you know
how long we've been together?

- How long?
- Are you ready?



Six fuckin' years.


I know!

♪ In the worst way ♪

♪ But I don't have a car ♪

♪ So you'll have to
come and get me ♪

♪ To have me
where you are ♪

♪ Let's drive, drive,
drive, drive ♪

[keys clatter]

Mnh. Mnh.

Oh, God.


Oh, I missed you.


Are you trying to take
advantage of me?




Shut up and kiss me.


- Drunk, drunk.
- Shut... I'm not drunk.

How much did you drink?

I didn't drink anything.

That's a bold-faced lie.



Tell me about your night.

Well, mmm...

You left me, so I
hung out with Jessica

and she was making out
with this guy.

That's very nice.

Yeah, and then...

The party was shit.

Everyone left.
It was dying.

It was boring, so Jess
asked for a ride home,

- I gave her a ride home...
- You drove?

And then, I came to see you.

You drove here?

Yeah, it's fine.

What the fuck, Mel?
Don't do that shit.

Shh! It's okay.

It's so stupid.
It's not okay.

I wasn't... I'm not even
that drunk, Dan.

- You're really drunk.
- I'm not really drunk.

Just promise me, next time,

you will call me
if you're fucking drunk.

- Call you?
- And you're not gonna be

an idiot and drive all
across town to drop Jessica off

- and then come back over here.
- I wasn't the only one

who was drinking.
You were drinking.

Stop. Can you keep your
voice down, please?

My roommates
are trying to sleep.

What, I'm gonna call you
and wake you up?

No, you're sleeping.
I'm perfectly capable...

It doesn't matter. Just don't
do it. Don't be a fucking idiot.


Don't do it.
Just don't.


Fuck you, man.

- Where are you going?
- I'm going home,

'cause, apparently,
I'm not welcome here.

- How are you getting home?
[keys jingle]

Stop. You're not driving.
- Don't touch me!

You're not gonna fucking
drunk-drive right now, Mel.

Get off me!



- What the fuck, Mel?
- I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Don't fucking touch me.

Oh! Fuck.

It hurts. Ow!


[water runs]


[crying] I'm sorry, Dan.
I'm sorry.


- Great, you're dressed.
- [mirthless chuckle]

Hi, I'm Dan.

Nice to meet you.

I'm Mel.

Okay, all the hard work
has been done.

It should heal on its own.

You don't even
have to see a doctor.

All right.

Okay, great.

So how did this happen?


I tripped.

I just tripped and hit
my head on my dresser.


Okay, guys, that's pretty
much all I need to know.

- Okay. Thank you.
- All right. Thanks.

My shoes.

[music playing softly]

How you doing?

Yo, yo.

I pulled those records
you wanted.

Thank you.

The shipping labels should
be printing right now,

and if you could just
get those all squared away

and send them to that list

of journalists I sent you.

You got it.

Cool hat.

Thank you.

Hey, wait.
You want a coffee?

- Coffee.
- I need one really bad.

I feel that.


So what's the deal
with your hat, anyway?

It's 100° outside.

- Ow.
- Holy shit!

- [chuckle]
- What happened?

I hit my head on
my dresser last night.

Were you drunk, or something?


No, no, but my girlfriend was.


We got into this fight
'cause she was drunk...

Very, very, very drunk...
And wanted to drive home.

So I was fighting her
for her keys and hit my head.

And she pushed you?

It wasn't that big
of a deal, really.


I don't know, that sounds
pretty fucked up.

Imagine if you
had done that to her.

I don't know.

Did you bleed a lot?

Yeah, there was a lot of blood.

I spent the whole night
in the emergency room.

It was really fun.

That sucks.

Well, a bunch of us are
gonna go see that band

Fun Friends tonight.
You want to come?

Oh, nice.

Yeah, Mark keeps talking
about that.

Well, text me

if you want me to put
you on the list.


I have to go back to work.


Pew pew.


Good morning,
ladies and gentlemen.

Good morning!

Are we all ready
for a very great day?


I see some of you peeking
over into the corner.

- Is there somebody there?
- Yes.

Are you curious
about who that is?


Yes? I hear some yeses.

So I would like to introduce
to you Miss Clark.

Miss Clark is gonna be
spending today with us

and she's gonna be spending
a couple of weeks with us.

Can you all give a very,
very warm welcome and say

"Hi, Miss Clark"?

Hi, Miss Clark!


So tell me...
Tell me about your plan.

Tell me about
where you are in school

and what you're thinking.

Well, I just started
my junior year,

so I got one more
after this and then,

I'm gonna do it,
I'm gonna teach.

- You are?
- Yeah.

What are you thinking?

Do you want to do
elementary education?

I think so, I really do.
I just love the kids

and I love how open
their minds are

at this age, you know?

Yeah, there's this flowing
creativity all the time.

Exactly, and they just
say things.

You were great with them.
You were really good today.


Oh, uh-oh.
There we go.

- Yeah! Beautiful.
- Domino did not make cookies.

- Did Navador make you cookies?
- No.

Who makes cookies?
Topo makes cookies.

Topo makes the cookies.

Dan, have you met Jess?

No, I haven't. I just
saw the show tonight.

It was so good.
You guys are amazing.

Thank you for coming.

- Dan's our intern.
- Oh, cool.

Have you ever had an intern?

That would be awesome.

Oh, my God, we need
to get you an intern.

- Yeah.
- Interns are incredible.

Will you do a me a favor?

Will you drink
the rest of your drink?

- This one?
- Mm-hmm, mm-hmm.


Did you see that?

- I saw that.
- That's amazing.

He did that for free.

You got credit, though.

You got course credit for that.

Thank you, yeah.

So, um, Jess, your tour
is winding down.

Yes, we are about to play
our last show in Brooklyn.

Where in Brooklyn?

The music hall of Williamsburg.

Oh, that's great.

We're so excited, yeah.

We've got... We've got plans
for Brooklyn.

We have designs on Brooklyn.


Can't say too much yet,

but the next time
you come through there,

[bottle clinks]
- we'll take care of you.

Soon enough.
Jess, come on.

I want to introduce you
to some folks.

Nice to meet you.

Yeah, nice to meet you,
too, Jess.

I saw Dan at the show.

He was with all of the
like record-label people.

He didn't say hi.


Yeah, he was, like, in the back
with them all, and... you know.

I mean, he waved, but,
they're kind of weird.

They kind of just
make me nervous.

- I don't know.
- They're so weird.

[Mel] They make me feel
so uncomfortable.

I'm so happy you said that.
It's not just me.

- No.
- That's weird.

Yeah, I saw him and
I was like, "Hey, there."

You know, I don't know.

Hey, do you ever think
about dating anybody else,

other than Dan?


I mean, come on.

Come on, what?
I'm happy.

Don't you ever feel like
you're missing out?

You don't get bored?

- No, I don't get bored.
- You've been with him
for so long.

How do you keep
things interesting?

Yeah, like do you ever
watch porn?


- What?!
- I'm serious!

You know, spice it up
a little bit.


She does have a point.

I'm kidding.
You know I'm kidding.


Are you good?


Did you tell 'em where
all the bodies are buried?

Oh, right. Oh.

Cheers, guy.




You want to do
the lanterns for Jess?

Fuck, yeah, I want to do
the lanterns for Jess.

You are gonna love this.

Go round up the troops.
We'll be out in five.

Thanks for inviting me
over, man.

I'm glad you came.

Having a blast.

Um, so tell me about Dog Water.

Did you give it a listen?

I gave it a listen.

Yeah, I mean, you know,

they were playing a lot
of shows that I was going to

and they just graduated
last year,

but they're sticking around.

I know they're fucking
working at it, so.

I want you to keep an eye
on them for me, okay?

Every time
they record something,

if they're playing out live,
you come grab me,

I'll go check 'em out with you.


Let's go set off
some motherfuckin'

Chinese lanterns!

Thank you very much.

Oh, hey.

I don't want to be
on camera and eating.

So what? You look cute
with no pants.

'Cause I'm at home.

[both moaning and groaning



Guess what... I'm a fuckin'
filthy fuckin' slut.

Yeah. Mmm.

[furniture thumping]

[knock at door]

Hi-i. How are you?

I'm really drunk.

Someone had fun.

Mm-hmm. I gotta show you this
band Mark just showed me.

No, not another one.

You're gonna like it.
You're gonna like it.

No, I'm sure I will.
Play it tomorrow.

What's your fuckin' problem?

- Tomorrow. Come on.
- Let me play it for you.

Just play it tomorrow.

Dan, come on.

You're being weird.

See, look...

- [chuckle]
- What the fuck?

What the fuck?


You watch porn?

Were you just about to...?

Just about to what?


No, I don't...

They said they...

They said you were gonna
get bored, so I just... I...

Your friends are so stupid.


Do you watch porn?



- You watch...
- No shit, I watch porn.
I'm a dude.

- Oh, my God.
- Does that bother you?

Are you bored during sex?

[chuckle] No.

Are you bored?

No! [scoff]

Just relax, okay?

If you want to watch porn,
we can watch porn.

It might be weird.

Mnh-mnh. I'm good.

It might be fun.



All right.

I'm gonna go wash up.

[sputtering laugh]

So what'd you do at Mark's?

It was so fun.

You should've come with me.

You would've had fun.
It was like a big party.


And the band was there.
So good.

And then Mark is definitely
gonna sign them.

And guess what.

[spits] What?


Um, Amanda told me
that they don't,

um, keep interns
for more than a year

if they're not gonna
hire them, so...


- Yeah, but...
- Wait, she said that?

I mean, yeah, but she just
said that, I mean...

Well, she wouldn't just
say it, right?

I'm hoping.
I don't know.

She's my friend,
so she's hoping for me.

We'll see what happens.

That's awesome.
That's fucking awesome.



Don't smoke.

It's not good for you,
'cause, then,

I'm not gonna kiss you anymore.

You don't like kissing me?


Except for when you wear
the cat pants.

The cat pajama pants.
This is very hot.

Where'd you get this
little outfit, hmm,

some sort of lingerie store?



Yeah, I like it.

You look real fine.

[sputtering laugh]

How are your classes?

They're good.

I'm really sort of...

Getting senioritis,
you know what I mean?

Done with school.
I just want to be working.

But the internship is
going so well.

- Good.
- I'm just learning so much.

Everybody is really
gifted over there.

Hopefully, there'll be
a job when I graduate.

No one's said anything
yet, but...

There are some labels
in New York

that I'm interested in, but,

I have to be here next
year for Mel, anyway,

so I think it's
gonna work out well.

Timing will be good.

Well, you know, I know
we haven't really talked

about this,
but I want you to know

that your father and I,
we'd like to help you,

if you want to leave Texas.

We would pay your rent
and your expenses...


For a few months,
'til you got settled,

like we did with your
brother, and...


- Hi.
- Hi!

- Sorry I'm late.
- It's okay. Sweetie!

I had to wait 'til all
the kids got picked up. Hi.



What's going on?

Not much.
I'm starving.

- Yeah.
- Good.

Everything okay?



Very good.

Honestly, you know,
every time we talked,

I told your mom that I thought
she should sell that house,

even though the real-estate
market was crap, you know.

Yeah, I don't know.
So many memories.

I can't even deal with it.

I know.
Makes me sad, too.

I'm gonna miss her being
right next door.

- You know?
- I love you.

- Bye.
- Thanks for lunch.

- Okay, sweetie.
- Bye!

- What?
- Amanda just texted me.

Everybody's at the condos.

Sounds fun.

I don't want to go.
The pool's so nasty.

What the fuck?

You were just saying how
badly you want to go out.

Now you don't want to go.

Not there.

- Why not?
- I don't want to go there.

Give me one good reason.

- Because I don't want to go.
- That's not a good reason.

And I have nothing to wear.
I can't go like this.

Why not? Why do you need
a fucking outfit

for every different occasion?

I'm not gonna go see
all those record-label
people and go like this.

Who do you think these people
are? You think they give a shit?

They're all gonna be
really drunk, anyway.

Let's just go
and have a good time

and get the fuck out
of this house.


I have school tomorrow.

Since when do you give
a shit about school?

I give a shit about school.
What do you mean?

I have better grades than you.

We're going.
Today's the day.

- It's gonna happen.
- Mnh-mnh.

- Yes, it is!
- No!

- Come on.
- For how long?

One drink. One drink,
and if you

are hating the experience,
we can leave.

And that's a promise.

I'm going crazy.

I have cabin fever.

- I'm gonna kill you.
- Ah! Stop.

You're so heavy.

So, can we go?

Say "please."

Please, can we go?

Fine, but you owe me.

Yes, yes. Yes.

All right, let's do it.
Let's go.

You owe me. I'm serious.
Like bigtime.

Okay, really, whatever
you want, you got it.

You just made my day.

Oh, you gotta carry me.

Okay, I'm getting up.
I'm getting up.


[water splashes]

Help me.

Milady. Come on.

You got it?

Dan! Whoo-hoo!



Danny, come on.

You're really not gonna come in?


- Hi!
- That's Amanda.


Get in, get in.

Dan's girlfriend,
come on, get in the pool.

Yes, do it.



Can you get me a beer?

You got it, yeah.

Dan, get us a lot of beer.

Just keep it coming.

- Hey.
- Hi.

How are ya?

I'm all right.

Um, are we gonna go?

Right now?

You said one drink.


You're not having fun?

I'm just tired of dealing.

I understand.
I just...

I feel like it's important
that I'm here

with these people.

For work, you know?


That's cool. I mean,
you stay, I'll go.

- You sure?
- Yeah, it's fine.

Can you just text me
when you get home,

so I know you're safe?
I love you.

I love you.

See ya, kid.

Oh, look at them!

Shut the fuck up.


Are you gonna get in?

Come on, let's go swimming!

Come on, get in.

Come on, let's go swimming.

I gotta go.
Sorry, I gotta go.

But nice to meet you guys.

It was so nice to meet you!

- Have a good night.
- Bye!

Do you think
we're gonna get sick

because of how Mark
threw up in the pool

only about three weeks
ago? [laughs]

I totally forgot about that.

A lot of hot dogs.

Projectile-vomit hot dogs.

- 15 hot dogs.
- Just whole hot dogs.

Sliding in.



It was horrible.

It was impressive.
I was... I was impressed.

Yeah, no wonder your girlfriend

didn't want to hang out with us.


No, but why did she go?

She has class in the morning.


I mean, I have fucking class
in the morning, too,

but she's a good student
and I'm just a fuckup.

- Yeah.
- I'm just fucked up.

How long have you guys
been together?

6 years.

Whew! [laughs]

What is that?

Everyone says, "Wow,"

'Cause it's really a long time.


I know.

Wait, does that mean that she is

the only girl you've
ever had sex with?

- [laughs]
- What?


Well, well, well.

Wait, uh, can I ask you
a personal question?

When you've been seeing somebody

for that many years,
is the sex still any good

or is it, like, pretty boring?

Don't even ask me that,
please. I...

There's no way to... just don't.

Oh, I've just been single
for so long

that I cannot even imagine
what it's like

to be with, like in a long-term,

one-person, committed.

Just don't know.

I really can't.

I really can't.

You know?

Wait, I'm just gonna
speak freely here.

Just speak freely.


The thing is that,

Whenever I'm dating anyone,

even if it's like
for like three months

or a month, or even a week...

I just like, I get
so addicted to the sex.

All I can think about,
all the time.

I can't get anything done.


I become terrible
at my job. Seriously.

And then, when I'm single,

I just pretty much forget
that sex exists

[laughing] altogether.

Really? Wow.

- I know.
- Whoa.


I don't know why
I told you that.



I'm cold.

Oh, God.

[nervous laugh]


I'm sorry I did that.

That's okay.

- I'm really sorry.
- That's okay.

I don't know.
I don't know.

No, it's okay.
It's okay.

- I'm so sorry.
- It's totally okay.

- Fuck. I'm so stupid.
- Dan.

Real smooth, you know?

It's okay.

It's not like I haven't
thought about it before.

It's fine.

Look, I like... really like you,
but I really like you

as a friend and I,
you know, I don't think...

I don't want things
to get too confusing.

Yeah, totally.

It's fine. We're fine.

We're friends, yeah?


[nervous chuckles]

Okay, I'm gonna go now.

- Yeah.
- Yeah.

All right.


[water runs]

Mmm. Hi.

You got me breakfast?


Wait, why didn't you
come back here last night?

I had texted you
and you didn't respond.

I didn't want to wake you up.

Are you going
to the record label?

Mm-hmm, but I don't think

they're gonna need me
for that long, so...


Can we hang out when
you're done with class?



was that party any fun
last night after I left?

No, it was stupid.

I should've just left with you.

[scoff] Obviously.


Thanks for bringing me

You're so sweet.

Why are you the best?

I don't know.


I gotta go.

What's wrong?


What's going on?



♪ Down with the time,
light as a feather ♪

♪ That way you waited ♪

♪ That is, believe me,
no better ♪

♪ Here when I call you
the better ♪

[bass throbbing]

So, you know,
how was your night?


The lady.
What was her name?


Oh, it was good.

We went to dinner and I took her

to a movie, that whole thing,

and then, we had sex.


Nice, dude.
You got laid.

Yeah, I got laid.

"We had sex."

- Was it a nice date?
- It was very nice.

You gonna call her?


Was she a babe?

Was she a smoke show?

- Stop!
- She was quite a smoke show.

Where's Becca?

I don't know. I called her.
She didn't answer.

You got pictures?

Wait, why the fuck isn't
Becca here right now?

Why... Why isn't Becca here?


Hold on. Shh!
Fuck, my phone's dead.

Can I borrow your phone?


Where is it... oh.
It's in there?

You got it.

Where the fuck is Dan?

[woman] What?

I think he went over there.
What's the matter?

Here's your fucking phone.


Hey, Mel?



Mel, what's going on?

Mel. What's up?

Amanda, really?

What are you talking about?

I can't... [crying]

Mel, what's going on?

Stop. Stop
fucking pushing me.

Fuck you. Agh!

Don't touch me!

Just don't touch me.

[inhales deeply]


Mel, why don't you
just talk to me

and tell me what's going on?

What the fuck, Dan?
You kissed her.

You kissed her.

She kissed me, okay?

And I didn't think
it was a big deal.

I should've told you.
It was a mistake,

but I just... it was nothing.

That's why I didn't tell you.

I said don't touch me!

Why don't you just listen to me,
okay? It was not...


I didn't think
it mattered, okay?

It was just a stupid mistake.

Then you would've told me!
You would've told me

this morning, but you're
a fucking liar.

Because you... you kissed her!

You kissed her!

You kissed her!


Mel, I'm sorry.

I fucked up, okay?

I'm sorry, but I'll
never do it again, okay?

- Did you fuck her?
- I love you.

Answer the question.
Did you fuck her?

I didn't fuck her.

Yeah, but you want to.

- Stop it! All right?
- You want to!

Stop it! Fucking stop
hitting me, all right?

Ow! Fuck you!

[siren chirps]

Get off me!

Get away from the girl!

Get away from the girl!
Step away.

Get on the ground!
Get on the ground!

You, over there! Put your
hands behind your back.

I just thought we were coming
here to bust up a party.

Do you have any weapons on you?

- Do you have any
weapons on you?!
- No!

- What are you doing here, huh?
- I wasn't doing anything.


Mel, please!

You been drinkin' tonight?

Get up!

Mel, say something!

Keep them separated.
Keep her down!

Sit down!

What the fuck?!

You have the right
to remain silent.

Anything you say can and will be

used against you
in a court of law.

[sobbing, hyperventilating]

Wait! No!

You can ask for an attorney.

If you cannot afford
an attorney,

one will be provided for you.

Do you understand these rights
as I've read them to you?

Yes. Yes.

What are you doing?

- No, this was a mistake.
- Ma'am, please, take a seat.

I'm sorry, no.
We were just talking.

This is a big misunderstanding.

Keep her down!
Sit down!

Shut up and take a seat.

[sobbing, hyperventilating]




Can I help you?

Uh, yeah, do you know
when Daniel Mercer

is gonna be released?

Can you spell
his last name for me?


Well, we can hold him
for up to about 24 hours,

so I would suggest you maybe
come back tomorrow.

24 hours?

24, at least.


Okay, thank you.

[keys jingle]

Take me home, okay?

- Dan.
- Don't do it.





I don't have anything
to say to you.

[door-open alert chimes]

Talk to me.

[crying] I'm sorry.

I'm sorry.



[whimper, sobbing]

Great job, Luke.

How do you spell "winter?"

Winter? W...

Mel, are you okay?

I'm sorry.
I'm sorry, yeah.

I just don't feel good.
I'm sorry about that.

Well, if you don't
feel well, you can go home.


Yeah. I got this.
Trust me.


Yeah, maybe... maybe
it's for the best.

I'm sorry.

Don't worry. All right,
I'll see you tomorrow.

Thank you.

All right, everybody.

Take two more minutes
to finish your work.

Yes, ma'am!

Yes, ma'am.

Yes, ma'am.

Yes, ma'am.


Thank you.
Saved us. Wow.

We got a question for ya.
Please, sit down.




What do you like better,
the Early Oughts

or the Wild Bucks?

The Wild Bucks.

Thank you.

Would you like a job?


Would you like a job?

You heard us talking
about how we're gonna

set up that office in Brooklyn.

Jason's gonna go
out there and run it.

I'm gonna be out
every once in a while,

but we need somebody
on the ground there

to do the shit he can't do.

Um, thank you, guys.
This is amazing.

I don't know what to say.

It's like an assistant.

You help set up shop,
get the office running,

you'll go see shows.

'Cause I have a newborn and
I'll be moving into a house.

So I'll be living
vicariously through you.

Well, think about it.

I would feel much better if you
were going out there with me.

But I'll talk to y'all later.



I love the initiative
you're taking here at Topo

and we wouldn't be
offering you this job

if we didn't think

that you were really
part of the family.

You know, like
take a couple of days

and think about it, that's fine.

I understand
you have a life here,

you've got a girlfriend.

You make choices in life.
You know,

you win something,
you lose something.

Man, I can't... can't
thank you enough.

Absolutely, brother.
You earned it.


Get the fuck out of my chair.




Thanks, man.

Yeah, no, they shouldn't
know the words.

They can't possibly.

You knew?

You fucking knew.

Fuck you.

Why the fuck didn't you tell me?

They made me promise not
to tell you. It was...

- "They made me promise."
- It was very hard.

It was very difficult
for me not to tell you.

Well, what the fuck?

Put 'er there.


I'm sorry. I'm very
happy and excited.

I'm happy for you.

You want to get a drink
later to celebrate?



Mm-hmm, mm-hmm.


But, guys, like
what if he's there?

He's not gonna be there.

I'd be surprised if he
even knew these people.

Someone invited me from class.

Okay, you have some really
cute things in here.

Guys, why isn't he
texting me back already?

This is so fucking stupid.

Oh, my gosh, Mel.

Come on, come out
with us tonight.

It'll be fun
to just forget about Dan

and just let loose a little bit.


It's stupid for me to go out.

All right.

Well, we are gonna
get out of here, then.

All right.
Have fun.

Bye, girl.

Call us if you wanna come.





Hey, it's Dan.
You know what to do.

Hey, uh, it's Mel.


I, uh...

I miss you.

Call me back.


[soft rock music playing]


Um, I just wanted to apologize

about that text
I sent you the other day.

I was really drunk

and I know you have a girlfriend

and I do not want to be
that person.

Even... um...

Yeah, Mel and I are
actually on kind of a...

break right now.

Well, tonight,
we are celebrating

you leaving us for Brooklyn,

so let's drown
your sorrows, huh?

Sounds great.




I don't know, it's just kind of

frustrating right now, 'cause...

I just felt like this should be

just a purely happy moment

and, instead, it's just like

"Now, what the fuck
do I do?"

You go to Brooklyn.

Yeah, that's what you do.


Yeah, you're going to Brooklyn.


You'd be crazy not to.

I guess so.

I don't know.

I totally, totally know
what you're going through.

My boyfriend and I
broke up after we graduated,

but it took us
about a year, I think,

to realize that's
what we were doing and,

yeah, it just sucked.


Finally, after a long
while, I realized

we were going in totally
different directions.

But, I mean, maybe that's not

what's gonna happen to you.

[midtempo music plays]


What the fuck?

You came!

I'm so glad you're here.

Hey, hey, meet our new friends.

This is Will.


And this is Austin.

You came just in time.
We are just taking shots.

There you go, baby.

Wait, wait, wait,
wait wait wait wait!

- Let's cheers...
- To me.

To Mel,

because we all know you've been
going through a rough time.

- But you know what?
- What?

Fuck Dan, because you are
so much better than Dan.

Who the fuck's Dan?

Who the fuck cares?

- Fuck 'im.
- Yay.

I'm going. It's not that

Please, just calm down, okay?





Yeah, I was about two years old.


Wow. Very nice, guys.
Very nice.

I'll be right back.

Mel, I can't understand
anything you're saying.


I don't...

What the fuck, Mel?

You call me, you say
you're at my house,

and you're crying and I have to

fuckin' leave and come get you,

and, now, you don't want
to talk to me?

[sniffle] Can you...?

All right.

He was on top of me.

I pushed him off,
I pushed him off,

'cause I didn't want to
and he...

Oh, shit.

What happened?

What are you talking about?

Dan, I didn't even
want to go out.

I didn't want to go out,
but Becca...

What are you talking about?

He was just everywhere.

I pushed him off.


Are you okay?

Yeah, I just... I'm fine.

What the fuck?
Who is this guy?

I'm fine. I don't know.
He's gone, he left.

What did he do to you?

Oh, my God.
I can't take it.

What did he do to you?

Nothing. He didn't...
I pushed...

Can you just hold me, please?

You don't understand.
I just need you to hold me.

I... ahhh.



You okay?

Oh, shit.

I'm sorry.

I shouldn't have come over here.

You don't even want to see me.

I shouldn't have come over here.

No, that's not true.
That's not true.


Don't be sorry.
Don't apologize to me.

- Please, don't apologize to me.
- I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

I was just so scared.


Hey, Mom, it's Dan.

Just calling to let you
know that Mel and I

are gonna come down
to Houston this weekend

to help Mel's mom
pack up the house.

I just got back from next door.

It's chaos over there, but...

Oh, really?

Yes. I mean, but it's okay.
Do you want to do

a dinner Saturday night,
the four of us?

Oh, yeah, that sounds good.

I'll get it together.

All right, I'll call you
when we're heading down

and I'll see you this weekend.

Great, I can't wait.

I love you.
Give my love to Mel.

Love you, too.
Okay. Bye-bye.

Bye, sweetie.

You want some help?


Oh, God.

I can't believe your mom's
moving out of this house.

Where's the tape?

I don't know.
Will you come here?


You okay?

I don't know.

I think you're done packing.

It's the end of my childhood.

I have to grow up now?

Yeah, I guess so.

I guess that's what's happening.

But it's not that bad, right?

It's kind of a cool thing.

Everything fits in boxes.

How can you pack up
your life in boxes?

I don't know, but you've
done a great job.

- Thanks.
- You really did great.

- Hey.
- Hey.

What's up?

Do you remember our first time?


And do you remember
that my mom came home?


I'm pretty sure she was
there during some of it.


- I think so.
- No!

'Cause when we came downstairs,

her face was like

How is everything?

Is everything okay?"

Dan, I couldn't look at her.

Oh, I remember.

Oh! I get embarrassed,

just thinking about that.

Oh! You just totally
ran out on me.

I'm sorry.

I was like "what the fuck?
Where did she go?"

Then, we got ice cream.

You bought me an ice cream.

Yeah. Gentleman.




How's it going?

How's the packing?

Oh, it's a little intense.

Mel and her mom, they're upset.

- It's hot.
- Yeah.

Well, you can always
take a swim, after.


I just want to get it
through, you know?

Get it done with.

What are you doing?

Oh, emails, nothing.


I have some news.

Um, so, the record label
offered me a job

in New York.


Yeah. It's cool.


But I don't know whether
or not to do it, you know?

Like we... Mel and I...
We had a plan.

I just don't know what to do.

Okay, do you... you want
my real answer?


'Cause my real answer is that

you need to make this
decision about you,

not Mel and not
this relationship.

Honey, I know

how special it is
with you and Mel.

You're family to each other

and we all are,
we're all family.

And I love her.

This is nothing against Mel.

But I am telling you this is

a great opportunity
and I know you want it.

I know you do.

And, honestly,
if I could tell you

anything that was valuable...

And I'm talking to you
as an adult, now...

That if... if I could go back,

have it over again,
there are things

I would change, there
are things that I...

Like what?

Well, I don't know
and I'm... this isn't about me

or regrets, or anything,
it's just I'm trying

to share with you
that we make decisions,

they affect the rest
of our lives.

I would have maybe gone
to grad school

and had a career I love
and, you know.

Please, you know
what I'm saying.

I know what you're saying.

It's kind of stressful.

Well, I don't want you
to have regrets.

Me either.

Yeah, that's what
I'm talking about.

This life goes around one time.

- [chuckle]
- That's it.

- No pressure.
- Well, it's true.

I know, you're right.


You know, we want this for you,

if it's what you want.

So, um...

I have to tell you something.

The record label
offered me a job.



Oh, my God.

That's amazing.

Yeah, I know.

I'm superexcited.

But it's gonna be in New York

and I'm gonna like help
open the office there

as Jason's assistant, basically.


In New York?


I mean, it's gonna be
like totally fine.

It's just for a year, you know?

We'll do long-distance
and we'll visit

each other,
like my freshman year.

But that was
completely different.

It worked out fine, though,
and you can come

to New York when you graduate.

No, you were two hours away,

not half the country away.

That's okay. We've been
together for so long,

we could do that.
It's nothing.

Just listen, okay?
I've thought about this.

Well, what about us?

I've thought about it and...


We can totally do
this long-distance thing

for a year.

W-Well, well...

Why are you reacting this way?

Did you take the job?

No, I haven't taken it, yet,

but I'm going to, obviously.

I ca...

I can't believe
you're doing this.

What am I doing?

What do you mean?
You're leaving!

You're going to New York.
You can't just decide

to do things.

Why can't you just be
happy for me, okay?

This is a job that
I've wanted for so long.

- No, the job you wanted
was here in Austin.
- I just want you to be
happy for me.

This is what we planned for.

It's not as if things

always happen according to plan.

Well, it's not like you
can just make the changes.

Can't you be a little bit
flexible, please?

Well, can't you decide something

that's not just for yourself?

Why can't you think about me?

All you think about is yourself

and all the things you want.

You're saying I'm being
selfish and like

I try and talk to you about this

and you just flip out!

You've already made a decision.

You flip out at any conversation
of me not being with you...

It's not a conversation!

You flip out.
I can't believe you're...

You didn't want to see me
for two weeks.

You just kicked me aside.
You ignored me!

I did not kick you aside.
I asked for space!

And you couldn't respect
that, in the slightest.

You flipped out.

It's like you need me and,
if I'm not with you

all the time,
you're gonna fall apart.

It is exhausting,

being with someone
who is so fucking needy.

I don't need you!

I don't fucking need you,
so get out.

[scoff] Okay.

Dan, I'm s... I'm...

[crying] please, Dan,
leave right now.

[chuckling] You don't
want me to leave.

I want you to get the fuck
out of my house right now!

I can't.

Dan, go, please!

All right, fine.

Fuckin' asshole.

Fuck you!

Fucking little kid.


[car alarm chirps]



Why do I keep doing this?

Hey, Mel?

Oh, fuck!

He's not picking up.
He's not picking up.

- C'mere.
- God!

I have to... I have to...
I have to go talk to him.

No. Mel, that is not
a good idea.

I need to talk to him
and explain things.

God, he can be such
a fucking asshole, too.

Well, just sleep on it

and go talk to him tomorrow.

Give him a day.

Oh, shit.

I fucked this up.






Hey, Amanda.





- Cool flag.
- Thanks.

You play that thing?


You any good?


I don't know.
Kind of.

Can I play something?


Oh, my God, I fucking
love this record.

So fucking good.
