Gossip and news are the same thing.

They always have been.

People tell stories.

That's what makes us human.

Come on, Webb.

Connect the dots. Be clear.

People pass a bunch of

stories around...

...finally they're written down,

then you have religion.

You read the Gospels, they're stories

that completely contradict each other.

Matthew's saying this and Luke's

saying, "No, this is what I heard. "

What's your thesis?

All I'm saying is people are people.

We do what we do...

...and then we gossip about it.

It might be great if

we were more noble, but...

...the stories wouldn't be as good.

And I like gossip. It's fun.

Well, that was exhausting.

- What'll you do for his paper?

- He's a prick.

Maybe we should do one together.

He lets people do that.

Hey, Travis. How's it going?

Rebecca. Great.

Wonder who she thinks you are?

I don't know, but whoever it is,

I bet he gets laid a lot.

I had an idea for Goodwin's paper.

I think we should start a rumor.

- You mean on purpose?

- Why not? We're good at it.

What's the point?

You know, track it,

see how it grows.

- Like Telephone.

- Yeah.

So start a rumor...

...like Jones is sleeping with us.

That's why we live together.

Yeah, no one would believe that.

Why not?

You never sleep with a girl

long enough to live with her.

Well, I might.

If Travis took weekends.

I sit behind you in Goodwin's class.

I thought what you said today

was just brilliant.

A beautiful girl thinks I'm brilliant.

I like this party.

Come on, Jones.

Just one.



Of course.

Hey, Naomi?

Who comes to a party in the

meatpacking district in a Town Car?

Her father's a very big deal.

Were you going to tell me?

Tell you what?

- You and Goodwin?

- Say that again?

I've always wanted to do it.
