(glasses clink)

So what do you do, Tom?

I am...

funeral director.

You're a funeral director?

That's amazing.

And depressing.

Well, that is why I need

a beautiful girl like you to...

help me feel better.

I'm sorry.

Check, please?

Who's a bad girl now


(gentle music)

Alright, I got it, I got it.

Oh, I'm sorry.

- Nice catch.

- Are you okay?

I'm really sorry. I absolutely was not

looking to see if I was going to...

crush a human being

in my quest to make

a perfect catch.

Luckily, I'm gonna live.


Are you gonna be around here

for awhile?

I've got my book, a sandwich,

and now I have a bruise,

so where am I going to go?

(Avi) Dude, let's go!

I'm Callie.


(Avi) Come on.


(Avi) Yo, the Frisbee.

(gentle music)

Oh, whoa, sorry.

I didn't mean to startle you.


You look big from down here.



The book is so good,

it put you to sleep?

Yes, actually.

Well, we're going to go to

Randolph's to get a drink,

you should come with.

No, really, put the guy out of

his misery, come on, let's go.


Now you owe me a drink, too.

Come on.

All right.


- Thanks.

- Sure.

- Avi, this is Callie.

- Nice to meet you, Callie.

(David) That's right.

(David) I remember

your name.

Thank you very much.

- Thank you.

- Thank you.

(David) Okay, I would like

to toast our new friend...

No, let's... to you, David. To not

tackling women to pick them up.

Uh, to Avi, for maybe someday

meeting a real girl

so he doesn't break his hand

jerking off all the time.


I will say that crashing into me

was kind of a good move.

Oh, suck it Avi.

No listen, David's ex

was a fake plastic b*tch.

Frankly, I'm surprised the man's

got any game left at all.

Dude why are you bringing up
