Tea cake, please.

What? You the one that said

you wanted to marry me.

Yeah, but I was 7!

Yeah, well,

you was a mature 7.

Just be my friend, Tea.

Boyfriends come and go.

Baby, I'll come and go.

Where do we start?

You nasty.

Yeah. You better

take advantage of this.

I might not live

down the street

For the rest of your life.

Take the first exit

off the bridge.

Left. Make a left

at the light.

At some point

you have to tell me

Where we going.

I don't wanna be

following you around

Like some

honeydew sucker.

Why not? You been

doing it for years.

Are the rules

suddenly changing?

Look, just tell me what

the sign on the building

Is gonna say.

California cryobank.

What kind of

bank is that?

It's a sperm bank.

That's it.

I'm making a u-Turn.

No, wait.

It's right there, Tea.

For 17 years,

I thought he was dead.

But it's not true.

I have a father.

So you think you're

gonna walk in here and say,

"Oh, excuse me,

17 years ago"

"A man came in

to make a deposit."

"He looked like me, maybe?"

Be quiet.

"Anyway, could you give me

his name and number,"

"'Cause he's my daddy."


shut up.

Can I help you?

Yes. I have a friend here

Who's interested

in donating.

No, you don't!

He's a little shy.

Surely. For today, he needs

to fill out the forms

And leave blood

and sperm samples.

Only 15 % of applicants

end up becoming donors.

If he qualifies,

He will be paid

$40 per donation,

With no more than 3 deposits

allowed per week.


Thank you.

Hey, hey, come on.

I Can't just

go in there

And wrestle with the

bald-Headed champ.

What's the big deal?

It's not like you've

never done it before.

That's my business.

Are you ready?

Mm-Mmm, mm-Mmm, mm-Mmm.

We have magazines

As well as videotapes.

Which would you prefer?
