It was so collaborative

right away.

It just made me feel like,

"Oh, this is what

it's supposed to be like."

Do you feel good about it?


Yeah. I feel great about it.

Do you think I look okay?

Yeah, you look fine.

Have you been talking

to this girl?

Yes, we've been texting.

Saw each other on the Internet,

and you know...

Right. Naturally.

Of course. I mean,

it's all in the hopes

of getting into some kind

of relationship, right?

But then, you wonder, like,

"Who did they actually

vote for?"

-You know, are they--

-Please don't bring up the...


Like, the world is going

in the shitter.

You don't wanna talk about

what's actually happening

in the world?

Not on my first date

-with this girl that

I'm hopefully gonna like.

-Do I have a rule book?

Can you give me a check book

of what I'm supposed

to talk about?

How you guys doing?

Give the man a big

round of applause.

Are you ready to party?


I have to bring

this young lady up.

She's always bringing

her ass in here,

wanting to sing with us.

She's from Spain.

I'm gonna let her do

this one damn song.

And her name is Sergio.

with an "O."


This is my first song

I've written all in English.

And it's the first time

I'm gonna sing it to you.

So I'm, like,

a little bit nervous,

but I think it's gonna be

so cool.

I hope you like it.



My boy says make room

When the hand come

At the gloom

When the arm comes

Creeping up

I spread my arms so wide

Assume that

That forfeits doom

With the brightness

I resume

And my broken leaves

On my branches

Slips away

My blossoms bloom

Bloom, bloom, bloom, bloom

Okay! Wait, wait, wait.

I get it.

Andre, do you think

that's working?


Oh, she's the only one.

-You are the truthful girl.

-Yes, I am.
