I'm driving.

I'm 17.

Driving with...

Couple of shots in you, it's a skill.

All right.

Well, to the revolution.

So, what'd you think about, like,

this baby?

Football try outs in 15 minutes.

Become part of the myth,

if you have the courage.

There you go, there you go.

Good work, good work.


- It's Ed, right?

- Yeah, yeah. Hi.

You know, I can't work you out.

Are you watching with jealousy or...

Or fear?

'Cause you look pretty grim,

but then all of a sudden

it's envy maybe or something.

I'm just watching.

I think not.

I'm a pretty good judge

of facial expressions.

What are you doing here?

Are you just filming?

You're a groupie or something?

As if I would let a football player

touch my delicate flesh.

Then, what are you doing?

I'm a...

Studying their brains.

After football hits,

you know how it jumbles up your brain.

Pre-season, mid-season, post-season.

- Why?

- I think it's fascinating.

Also, my Dad's a neurologist

and we actually have

an MRI machine in our house.

That's actually really cool.

Thanks. Most people think it's weird.

Most people are idiots.

Aren't they, though?


- Come on. Yeah.

- Go.


It's longing.

Hi, sweetie.

My drink with John

is turning into a dinner.

And, in fact, I...

I think I'll see you in the morning.

I love you.

Buddy, you're the best.

Buddy, you're the best.

Buddy, you're the best.

Hey, Dad.

- Hey, buddy.

- Virtual fist bump.

How's it going?

It's going good. Yeah.

I was just thinking

of things we can do when you get here.

Yeah, wanted to talk to you about that...

Small problemo here.

I'm gutted, man

but Fawn has a line on some furniture

in Florence.

The Italian thing is

going crazy down here.


Don't give me attitude, Ed.


It's just so hard for me
