Clown bus.

What does that even mean?

l don't know,

but they said you have to wear stuff

that you won't mind getting wet.


Am l getting the present?

Yeah. But nothing from China,

nothing with batteries.. .

You know what? l'll just get it.

lt'll be easier.


This is more moist this week.

Mine's actually more dry.


What's the story?

Oh. Okay.

Third date.

First one was okay. Second one was bad.

She's giving him one more chance

to prove that he's not boring.

And he is not succeeding.

''Hi, l'm eating roast beef. lt's delicious.

''l have a potato on my fork.

''l like to eat potatoes, they're delicious,

''but l don't actually

ever put them in my mouth."


''That's amazing, Jeremy,

but l'm gonna go home now

''and fart into a shoe box."


That's not.. . That doesn't make sense.

Boy. Look at these two lovebirds.


Now.. . First date.

Nope. He has a ring on. They both do.

Mmm-mmm. No. Married?

They're not married.

They're sitting on the same side

That is a.. . That's an ''l'm stupid'' move.

-Showing off is what it is.

-How do you even talk to someone

You're, like, craning your neck,

''Hey. How are you?''

''l'm fine."

Those are definitely wedding rings, though.


Come on. This is a family place.

Any coffee or dessert for you guys tonight?

-Hey. What?

-Coffee or dessert?

-What do you say, hon?

-l'm actually so tired

that if l rested my head

on this table right now.. .

Yeah. Sleep for a year. No.

-l think just the check, Mike. Thanks.

-Thank you.
