And he's making demands?

He's always been controlling,

usually I'm okay with it.

But there's no sex?

God, no!

And you're into him because...

Because of the yoga.

I like the yoga.

So, find another class.

There is no other class, Reese.

This is it.

And I'm good.

He won't say it,

but I'm the best damn student he ever had.

So, if he's going to start

making decisions based on emotions

of which he has zero,

then I think we've got a problem!

And they say the gay scene

is complicated. (SCOFFS) What?

Here you go, ladies,

added token of our appreciation.

Here's the mask

your buddy wanted me to wear.


we had to cut up the pillowcase.

Got it, thank you.

You know I've got real masks

back at the house,

just saying.


So, how long are we going to be here?

I thought you Brits liked the salt air.

I don't like all that money

sitting under a friggin' sink.

- Feed it to the fish.

- What?

I just got access

to every offshore account my uncle owns.

And she called me an amateur.


Who is it?

It's your uncle.






How do we get out?

You're looking at it.



Batgirl, I'm afraid

I didn't get your number.

So I'm sending this video

to the police to give to you.

They've got to be good for something.

You may have heard

that I've come into some family money.

I told you I'm no punk.

In fact, I got you a gift.

Something special for my special girl.

Just go back to where we met. You'll see.

- Cute.

- It's not cute. It's a trick.

I know, but it is a little flattering.

No, he doesn't know you.

He's objectified you.

When a criminal gets personal like that,

it's bad news.

You're off this one.
