Damn! Wha... so he's dead, right?

No, he's the lead. He can't be dead.

- [sighs]
- Right?



[soft laughter]

Hey, I thought you wanted to, you know,

Netflix and chill tonight.

Ye... babe.

You know that means sex, right?


- We shouldn't tonight.
- What?

Why not?

I just don't think it's a good idea.

- [sighs]
- Period.


Wa... It's not a problem.

You know, I have a designated towel

for these occasions.

It has, like,
a really busy pattern on it, so...

- Hey, hey.
- What?

Just give me a couple days, okay?

[exhales] Yeah.

I get it.

It's like a...

generational thing, you know?

You know, maybe it is
a generational thing.

David was just always so weird about it.

Oh, I bet he'd send you into the woods

until the end of your moon.

You've never had period sex?

Not on purpose. Have you?

Well, if you're a lesbian,
you have to go with the flow,

otherwise you're celibate
for half the month.

Oh, I never thought about that.

And you don't even want to see

when I sync up with a girlfriend.

My bed looks like a crime scene.

Thanks for the warning.

Hey, we've finally
synced up, haven't we?

Yeah! Happy day two.

Still TBD, Liza.

"P is for Pigeon,"
our lead title this season,

is just weeks away from launching.

It is the story of the
world's last passenger pigeon

and a powerful meditation on the...

extinction of the American middle class.

How are the preorders so far?

Slightly lower than we'd hoped,

but 5,000 should put us on the
"Times" Best Seller list,

and that is definitely within reach.

I have put a call in
to the Audubon Society

for a bird-watching and
reading doubleheader

at The Cloisters.

Got it. Can Millennial discuss their IP?

We are planning a college tour

for "The Deciding Decade."


And, uh, we really want to
find the next Warsan Shire.

Nobody's breaking poets right now,

except Beyoncé. Dead end.


Your next authors.

What's up? I'm Kray.

And I'm Tay.

- And we're...
- Both: The Stoopid Girls!


- Tay.
- Hey?

Are you wearing an adult diaper?

Uhh... yeah, I am!

Wait, so are you.

Oh, my God!

Both: Chonie chug challenge!

First one to leak through their Depends

is the winner.

- Chugs.
- Chugs, mm-mm.

Okay, here I go.


There's another 14 minutes of this?

I can scrub through to the end

if you want to see who wins.

I'm not sure this is

on brand for us.

Great books come from great ideas.

We shouldn't be precious
about the source.

And what ideas do these girls in...

diapers have?

They have 5 million subscribers.

If even 1/100 of a percent
of them buys the book,

they're on the "Times" Best Seller list.


That is their manager's contact.

I hate talking on the
phone. What's wrong?

Comment below if you've ever puked.


[car horn honks]

Could The Stoopid Girls
really write a book?

I mean, would they even want to?

To make that much money being stupid,

you have to be at least a
little bit smart, right?

Yes, exactly, and if
they're thirsty enough

to make 187 videos this year,
they'll be down

for any platform that
feeds them more attention.

Snap 'em now while they're
still just Internet famous.

Oh, we emailed their manager.

We just haven't heard back yet.

Oh, they're probably just
busy prepping for VidPop.

- VidPop?
- Mm-hmm.

It's a YouTuber convention

at the Javits Center this week.

There's a YouTuber convention?

No, there are dozens of them,

and they're insanely popular.

I had to promise the firstborn
I'm never having to get

Hector and Dorff to be
the official jockstrap

of the VidPop gift bags.

Ugh. I'll get you passes.


[coaster buzzing]

[sighs] Did we have to come

this close to Beth Israel to meet Max?

And did we have to come here?

I told you, with a doctor,
you got to take it

whenever and however you can get it.

You know, whether it's sex

or a tequila-lime chicken finger.

We've hooked up in the on-call room

three times this week.

Lucky you.

So anytime,


What if you're...

you know...

[quietly] having your period?

[laughs] Why'd you whisper that?

I don't know... I'm just a...

I'm just asking a follow-up question,
never mind.

No, no, no. It hasn't come up yet.

But the only thing I
don't do on my period

is a yoga inversion.

So everything else is on the table?

Wait, is Josh anti-period sex?

No, that's offensive.

I thought he was so woke.

No, he is.

He... wait, what's woke?

Enlightened, i.e., he's not

terrified of the female body.

Oh, ah, you know what?
There's Max; let's ask him.

- No, no-no-no-no-no-no.

- Hey.
- Hi.

Hey, uh, Max, this is my friend Liza.

- And you remember Kelsey.
- Hey, again.

- Nice to meet you, Liza.
- Hey.

Um, honey, quick question.

You're cool with period sex right?

[laughs] Yeah.

I knew it.

My attending's letting
me do the episiotomy

a huge baby, so...

supposed to be, like, a goof.

Wow, this is... not
