- Can I help you?

- Hi. I'm your neighbor, Gene Handsome.

I thought I'd come and welcome you

to the neighborhood

by, uh, bringing you and your daughter

some cookies.

- I'm the babysitter.

- Oh! Okay, well, then,

- you can take the cookies.

- I'm not opening this door.

I commend your cautiousness.

You seem like an A-plus sitter.

But, as I said, I live next door.

I am an officer of the law.

So you really got nothin' to worry about.

I'm sorry.

I'm not comfortable opening the door.

You think I'm a creep.

Oh, my God, that's the last thing

I wanna be, is a creep.

No, no, no, that's not my intention.

That's not who I am.

I mean, you can go put them on the porch,

but I can't say anyone's gonna eat them.

I'm gonna leave them right over here,

but you gotta do me a favor.

After I go, please bring in the cookies.

'Cause later tonight,

I don't wanna see them out here,

'cause I'm afraid

I'll come over and, uh, eat one.

- Wow.

- I know. I got a problem, I...

All right, anyhow, take them in.

Thank you very much. I'll see you later.



All right, pick me up.

I gotta go. I gotta go.

I'll see you later. Make me get up.

- You know what I watched the other night?

- Huh?

Best movie I've ever seen.

I don't know if you saw it. San Andreas.

I love San Andreas.

You fuckin' kidding me?

Oh, my God. The Rock? Perfection.

The absurdity?

Best absurdity I've ever seen.

Maybe one of the best movies...

Easily the best...

What won the Oscar in 2015

that was better than San Andreas?

Best movie ever.

And all the time he spent in a boat.

He's in a boat,

but he's a helicopter pilot. I loved it.

- I loved it.

- I loved it.

What would you do if you had a partner

who didn't like how loud you talk?

I don't talk loud. You talk loud.
