We were bike couriers together

when I first moved to New York City.

I mean, we did our salad
days together, right?

Why don't you come over for
dinner, huh? We're having a party.

Bring your vegetables. Turn your
salad days into salad nights.

- (LAUGHS): Oh, yes.
- THE GUY: I love vegetable humor.

- Yeah, no pro... Hey, Fomo.

MIKHAEL: Powder!

Powder, the dog doesn't like that.

It's okay. The dog has a present anus.

- We'll figure it out with the dog.
- Okay, cool.

And if you come over here,
our friend Bryan Crockett

wanted to depict the seven
deadly sins through mice.

Can you guess which one?

Uh, sloth?

- Gluttony.
- Ah.

Sloth and gluttony.

What's in the box?

The box?

- When he goes, like...
- MIKHAEL: The box?

- Know what I mean?
- No, I don't.

From Seven? Remember Brad Pitt?

Forget about it, forget about it.

- Cool. What's this?
- Okay.

RAOUL: Did you know the
way they grow asparagus

makes it like the veal of vegetables?

No, but you know what?
I forgot to get veal.

That's what I forgot to do. Sharona?

I forgot to get the veal, and also,

the crystals, I left them
on the nightstand to charge...

- I put them on the windowsill. Mm-hmm.
- You did? You're amazing.

- You are amazing.
- POWDER: Papa, look.

- I'm Jesus Christ.

- More like the anti-Christ.
- DK: Oh, my God...

- Oh!

- Actually popping and locking.
- To the church.

- To the church.
- Uh-huh.

MIKHAEL: Our friend John Bianchi

made this quintessential ouroboros.

- Oh. A snake eating its own tail.
- Yes.

That's an eating disorder.

It's a sculpture.

- No, it's a sculpture. You're right.
- Yes.

You smoke a lot of weed, yes?

Yeah. I mean, yeah.

A pipe from Cambodia.

Oh, I... Yeah, sure.

Ma chérie, is it okay if, uh,

Powder plays Just Dance?

Did you already play today?

- Yeah, I'm so sorry.


- Oh.
- Man, you really stink.

- What's that?
- You really stink.

Oh, yeah. I mean, 'cause
I was gardening all day.

I haven't got a chance to shower.

Do you mind if I, uh, take you in?

- THE GUY: You want to smell?
- SHARONA: Yeah.

You see this? How do
you feel about this?

THE GUY: Oh, wow. Cool.

- SHARONA: Is that okay?

MIKHAEL: She's got exotic tastes.

- SHARONA: So intense.

This is a film by our friend,

Greta Alfaro, called In Ictu Oculi.

THE GUY: Hey, you wanna smoke?

Anybody want to do a J with me?

- JACKSON: No, it was like, uh...

- SHARONA: Find my phone.
- Yeah.

(COUGHS) It was like,
Uber for weed delivery.

She was like, "You like,
boo-boop, I like this kind of weed.

- Boop-boop-boop". Okay.

- THE GUY: I never heard of that.

- That's some...

bad news for me.

SHARONA: Did you hear about the, um...


... about those taxi drivers who
took out million-dollar loans

for the cab medallions,

- and then Uber came along...
- Uh-huh.

... and took their business.

And now, you know, they
can't pay off their loans,

and they're committing suicide.

- No, I didn't hear about that.
- Crazy.

Yeah, that's crazy.

- So let's talk about anything else.
- Right.

THE GUY: Yeah.

I'm pretty hot. It's hot in here.

THE GUY: Hot in this hot tub, man.

- THE GUY: I'm burning up.



All right.

DK: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

- MAN (ON TV): The thorn!

RAOUL: The thorn! The thorn of truth!

DK: Jesus stuff aside,
the joy that he is getting

from this right now, come on!

MIKHAEL: He's so passionate.

Listen to this crowd going nuts.

THE GUY: For sure. He believes
what he is doing, for real.

MIKHAEL: He does believe. Look at him.

- Oh, my God.
- DK: Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

- Oh!

THE GUY: Very good, man.

MIKHAEL: Look at his little dong!

- MIKHAEL: Oh, my goodness.

- MIKHAEL: Now that is popping and locking.




MAN (ON TV): ... and how my
pores are so clean...

MIKHAEL: I forgot to make ice cream.

DK: I don't know if we would want

to have ice cream after watching this.

THE GUY: Talk about a brain freeze.


- JACKSON: Ah, well done.
- DK: It's eating its own skull.

MIKHAEL: It makes my mouth water.

DK: Must be a Haagen-Dazs ad
for like, Denmark or Sweden.

- Yeah, exactly.
- That won some award. This is terrifying.

- RAOUL: How long does this last?
- MIKHAEL: It looks delicious.

- It is an...
- THE GUY: It is an advertisement!

- ALL: Yes!
- Now it's gone. Aw.

DK: Is there something less, um...

- THE GUY: Terrifying?
- DK: ... expressionist, that we can watch?


- Shh!
- It's time to learn about proper opossum massage.

Here we have a senior opossum.

RAOUL: I don't like it
when she grabs the tail.

- DK: That's weird. Can they do this?
- It's very calm.

Exactly. Inspiring.

MIKHAEL: Well behaved,
for a wild animal.

You know what, fuck that, okay?

- THE GUY: Huh?
- DK: What year is this?

- Fuck it?
- Uh-huh.

- RAOUL: It's time, right?

It's from the '70s or '80s? Yes.

DK: The '70s or '80s, right?

MIKHAEL: Yes. Maybe it's her hairstyle?

DK: Or maybe she's been
wearing that hairstyle

since the '70s and '80s.

MIKHAEL: Well, if it
suits you, why change it?

- Shake out the stress.

- MIKHAEL: Even, even her shirt.
- Shake it out.

- THE GUY: Is that too much?
- RAOUL: Aren't raccoons the same?

DK: Yeah, 'cause if you see
a raccoon during the day,

- there's a problem.
- You okay, man?


- MIKHAEL: She's massaging him.
- I'm gonna go... feed Ishtar.

- A little lower.

Yes, feed him, please.
He must be hungry.

I mean, I'm pretty relaxed. You're safe.


- THE GUY: Whoa, shit.
- Whoa, whoa!



SHARONA: Get a cold, wet towel.
Put it on the back of his neck.

MIKHAEL: This is my
department. I'll handle this.

- Jackson, come on.
- RAOUL: I bet it's his blood pressure.

- MIKHAEL: Huh, baby?


- THE GUY: You okay?
- Yeah. I wanna watch the, uh, videos.

- He's going down.

- RAOUL: It's definitely his blood pressure.
- What was that shit, man?

It was just normal. It's
weed, it's weed, it's weed!

- MIKHAEL: Okay. You're okay.
- SHARONA: Hey, Jackson. Jackson.

- SHARONA: Baby. Baby.

- Yeah. Hi. I love you.
- SHARONA: Hey. Hey!

- You're okay. You're okay.

- SHARONA: You're safe, you're warm.

- You're sexy.
- JACKSON: Oh, you're so sexy, yeah.


POWDER: Mama, Papa, Sharona,
I had the dream again!

Agape, amor, you're fin.
Sharona, please take her upstairs.

- SHARONA: Let's, uh, Just Dance.
- You know what?

I'm gonna go help her, actually.

I'm so sorry.

- All right.

Sorry, again.

Papa. Papa, can you hear me?





THE GUY: How do we know
if we're doing well?

SHARONA: We're doing extremely well.

I think you know in your
heart when you're doing well.


- I'm really glad we're up here and not downstairs.

- SHARONA: Best part is coming.

- THE GUY: Hold on, Fomo. I'm coming.



THE GUY: Oh, shit!

- Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

- MIKHAEL: Okay. It's time to go.




WOMAN (ON TV): Shake out the stress.

Shake it out.

And stretch. (INHALES)

Breathe. (EXHALES)

And begin at the base of the skull,

working in slow, gentle,
concentric circles.

Then stretch out the trapezius.

It may help to use
your weight as leverage.

See what I'm doing?

Push, and fan.

Push, and fan.

Then we move down her spine, briskly,

stimulating each of
the vertebrae as we go.

Pull up on the rib cage.

(GROANS): Oh, that feels good.

Other side.

Always work both sides of the body.

Otherwise, you might inadvertently

interfere with your
opossum's natural chi.

And nobody wants that.

Next, we knead down the quadriceps.

We're checking for knots.

(GRUNTS) I think I found one.

Okay, work it out...

(SIGHS) There.

Oh, I bet that feels better!

All right. Everybody
loves a good foot massage.

The opossum is no exception.

So I put ointment on my fingertips.

And I'm going to find
the shiatsu pressure point

in the pads of the feet.

Press gently.

And awaken all those
little nerve endings.

I bet you feel that.

All right.

Now we come to the
part of the massage that

many people think is whole lot of fun,

and that's the tail rub.


Would you like to have
dinner with me sometime?

We could go floss shopping.

Mommy has a crush.

WOMAN: You embarrassed her.

Now, she's gonna go jump out a window.

She won't get too far,
we're on the first floor.

Get the treat.

(HIGH-PITCHED) Come on, get the treat.

- Okay. We'll work on that.

- These are for me, man?
- I had too much from my garden.

I love pickles.
