Apartment Troubles

Synopsis: This comedy follows two codependent East Village, New York girls, Olivia and Nicole, on the verge of eviction and existential crisis. They're struggling artists, living in a Bohemian apartment. Their electricity has been turned off and they've begun an ill-advised juice fast. To top it all off, they're out of money and too "talented" to come up with the rent. To solve their problems they go to L.A. to visit Nicole's wealthy aunt, Kimberley, the host of a popular reality TV talent show. As Kimberley convinces the girls to audition, the girls struggle to maintain their friendship as Olivia begins to realize she may not be as dependent on Nicole as she once believed.

What is that?

I spilled.

Is this thing clicking?

I don't know.

Maybe It's the stove.



Why worms, why?

Where are you going, worms?

What is up there?

- Oh, God!

- What is down here?

What do we do with the...

I told you we

shouldn't verma-compost.

Olivia, please stop with

the chopsticks, honey.

Stop... please stop

feeding them cheese.

They're lactose intolerant.

We can't treat them like this.

- This is a...

- Let go of this.

We're... we're going for a walk.

It's gonna be so nice out there.

Come on.

That lamp would be perfect.

No, we don't have electricity.

You're daring me.

- No, I'm not.

- I hate it when you do this.

I'm not daring you.

I'm not daring you.

- Oh.

- I do not want you to do this.

- Yes, you are.

- Get off the step.

You do not take lamps

from people's homes.

You can't do that.

Why are you always

doing things like this?

Stop it, you're gonna

break something.

Do not climb over there.

That is dangerous.

Stop it, stop it, stop it.


- Got caught!

- What?

Oh, God.



Oh, hi.


Okay, I can do that.

All right.

Thank you, I'll be there.


Got an audition.

What for?

Life insurance.



You don't want to do that.

You don't want to be

part of the problem.

I'm not.

Somebody needs to support us.

We need a benefactor.

What about your parents?


Why don't you sell

one of your pieces then?

I told you,

they're not done yet.


I'm getting muffins.

Do you want one?

The usual, IF they have it,

and IF not, blueberry.

Well, I didn't book

that job, either.

What are we gonna do?

I don't know.

Okay. Here's just

an idea.

Why don't you ask your

parents for more money?

I told you I've been

totally cut off.

Are they still your parents?
