Girl Most Likely

Synopsis: Kristen Wiig stars as Imogene, a failed New York playwright awkwardly navigating the transition from Next Big Thing to Last Year's News. After both her career and relationship hit the skids, she's forced to make the humiliating move back home to New Jersey with her eccentric mother and younger brother (Annette Bening and Christopher Fitzgerald). Adding further insult to injury, there's a strange man sleeping in her old bedroom (Darren Criss) and an even stranger man sleeping in her mother's bed (Matt Dillon). Through it all, Imogene eventually realizes that as part of her rebuilding process she must finally come to love and accept both her family and her Jersey roots if she's ever going to be stable enough to get the hell away from them.

This isn't about souls, all right?

This is about

whether two people really go together.


Libby wants to see you in her office.

Right away.

Is that your family?

Oh! Yeah. That's the gang.

- The Vineyard?

- Every summer since I was born.

What about your family?

Um... I grew up in the Atlantic

City area, near the beach, so...

Then every day was like summer, right?

No, every day was not like summer.

Every day was like being impaled

with a blunt, wooden object,

over and over again.

Anyway, I called you in here

because I had a chance

to read over your blurbs.

And, um, yeah, see,

I can't turn these in to Dan.

- Why not?

- Well...

First off, because you

called Dames At Sea,

"An insignificant, if not irritating,

"amalgam of lackluster

performances and sitcom one-liners."

Have you seen it?

Because that's putting it very nicely.

It won the Tony.

And, you know, frankly, we don't care

whether you think it's good or bad.

You're not a reviewer.

No, see, your job is just to describe

the play in five sentences or less

and make it sound interesting.

Perhaps you weren't aware

that I won the Hollingsworth

fellowship for playwriting

or that New York Magazine put me

on their list of playwrights to watch?

I was not aware. Thank you for

bringing that to my attention.

You're welcome.


Well, we certainly

don't want to stand in

the way of your burgeoning

writing career.

So, uh...


What does "yeah" mean?


You can go.

This is Peter.

I know I'm not

supposed to call you during work hours,

but I lost my job at the magazine.

And I'm just...

I'm having a really

tough time right now.

And I know it's not your problem, but...

I was just thinking maybe

you could come over

and just lay with me for a little bit?
