So, be honest. Why?

- Wait, is this a trick?

- No.

Just pure anthropological research.

Okay. You want someone

to sweep you off your feet,

but you're more interested

in getting swept off your feet

than the someone who's doing the sweeping.

You seem like you've got

it totally together,

but you're actually

really emotionally damaged.

Also, you have, like, really big eyes,

and that freaks me out sometimes...

Thank you. That's enough.

It is not you at all.

Of course it's me! You can't say that.

You're breaking up with me!

It's not. It's me.

I don't like you any more.

This is my fault.

You deserve better than me.

You're a great guy.

A little too emotionally unavailable,

if you ask me.

I didn't.

I really want to stay friends.

- Let's stay friends.

- Sure.

Totally.

John Mayer.

John fucking Mayer!

Come here, you.

You're gonna get through this.

Why do relationships always start off so

fun and then turn into suck-a-bag-o-dicks?

I really have to stop buying into this

bullshit Hollywood clich of true love.

Shut up, Katherine Heigl! You stupid liar!

I'm just gonna work and f*ck.

Like George Clooney.

I'm just gonna

shut myself down emotionally.

Like George Clooney.

Hello.

Seat up, please, sir.

Is that the Hudson River?

No. It's the East River.

So we won't be landing on it, then,

like that flight,

you know, with that captain

they keep giving medals to?

That pilot was a hero.

Asshole.

Plane actually did a lot of the work.

I think I found the perfect guy

to fill that job at GQ.

No, he's landing early. I'm scrambling.

No, he's not sold on the job yet,

but I'll get him there. I always do.

I'm even picking him up in a hybrid.

He's from LA.

I figured he's into all that bullshit.

Hey, sir, what's that

tall building over there?
