and he was wondering

if I could go with him.

It's a scary time. It's okay.

It won't take long.

Don't worry about that.

You take as long as you need.

I'm sure

everything will turn out fine.

You'll see.

Good luck.

- I'll see you later?

- Okay.

Stuff like that's not even funny.

You only get a chance

to make a first impression.

What do you care

what my dad thinks?

What if we hit it off,

become a thing or something?

- What was that?

- You and I would never become a thing.

You think pretty highly

of yourself, don't you?

First, why would I get

mixed up with a guy

who will jump

into an airplane bathroom

with the first girl

that comes a-knocking?

That was with you!

You won't get mixed up with me

because I slept with you?

Second, you're not even close

to being my type.

I'm not looking for a girlfriend

anyway, so...

Third, it turns out

you might be gay!

I mean, I want a girlfriend.


First things first, you know?

- What things?

- I don't know.

Make a plan

and get all my ducks in line.

You mean ducks in a row?

- Yes, I mean ducks in a row.

- What ducks are those?

Like the normal kind of ducks.

Like, job, career, house, future.

And then the girl of your dreams

will come and find you?


I'll find her.

We'll find each other.

Don't worry about me and girls, okay?

I do all right.


What's that? Stop!

You're not unattractive.

You do know it's the middle

of the afternoon, right?

Two more?

- I've still got stuff to do today, so...

- So do I.

You know what?

Make them doubles.

They are doubles.

- Twenty-six.

- I got it.

- I know.

- You know.

You know what?

I don't mind paying,

but I hate the fact

that you assume that I'm paying.

At least make a move,

make the reach for it or something.
