No. Big no.

But I think turtle

might have bunk beds,

so if you two could

figure something out...


[Laughs] You got me,

boss. Good one!

Hey, took care

of the nortons.

Everything's cool.

I'm gonna take off now.

What do you mean?


I can't do this right now.

My head's not in it.

Let me guess.

Cowgirl gave you

the boot.



But I got

the last burn on her.

I said, baby,

when the phone ain't ringing,

that's me not calling.


Really, you said that?

No. But I should've.

Damn it, I just

thought of it right now

when I said it to you.

You know, one day

you're gonna meet

the right girl...

You're not gonna

know what to do.

You know where to find me.

Oh, yeah.

Turtle, never

date a girl

who pays her rent

in singles.


Bills, crap, junk...

"Have you seen me?"



Afternoon, ladies.

Oh, you'll never

leave me.

Ooh, there's a bargain.

[Dog barking,

cat screeching]


Oh, are you all right?

I'm sorry. I didn't see you.

Are you--are you hurt?

Uh, no, that's ok.

I'm on the pill.

Forgive me. I'm sorry.


Wait! Where--

where are you--

ok, girls, who wants

egg salad?


You made it?



thank you.

No, forget it.

[Knocking on door]

Come in.


Mrs. stubblefield.

Oh, Dylan,

you found whiskers.

Where was she?

Oh, she was

behind a dumpster.

Some dog chased her

back there.

Oh. Well, thank you.

Well, if it ain't

the shorty express,

right on time.

Hello, ladies.

Would you like to

join us for a drink?

Oh, no, thanks.

I already had

a roofie for lunch.

Mmm. Nice pants.

What she means

is nice ass.


Anyway, I wanted to ask

you a quick question.

Oh, don't tell me.

Let me guess.

The new girl

in apartment 6-c.


You want me

to hook you up?
