I think you should come.

Are you

gonna be there?

Ja.

Ok.

Cool. Give me your phone.

Ok.

..."inviting"?

Inviting? Like in

what sentence?

Like, "thank you

for inviting me."

Are you invited

to something?

Maybe.

I get invited to things

all the time.

How come you

don't invite me?

Because you're old.

I'm old?

How old do

you think I am?

Mm, I don't know. 40?

40?

Is this how you talk

to all the ladies?

You are a genius,

Morris,

but you're

not very charming.

Man, forget charming.

I'm gangsta.

'Cause all the gangsters

drink hot chocolate

with one marshmallow?

One marshmallow

is a gangster move.

Ok.

Teach me

how to be charming.

I can teach you

how to say, "charming."

Do you have a boyfriend?

Why?

You want to take

an old lady like me

out on a date?

No.

Good,

'cause I have one, yes.

What's his name?

Lukas.

Is he cool?

He's really cool, yeah.

He's in New York,

though.

Where in New York?

The west village.

Man,

f*ck the west village.

Language, please.

I miss him. Heh.

He's, uh,

learning English there,

like you're

learning German here.

Cool.

So...

Ehh.

Morris gentry.

Uh...

Hallo.

Hallo.

Uberraschen?

Surprise.

Hallo!

Mo.

You know

what time it is?

No.

You have your phone?

Yeah.

So you have a clock.

It's 12:
30 A.M.

Where you been?

Nowhere.

Morris,

where have you been?

I went to a party.

You told me

to make new friends.

Yeah, make some friends,

but let me know.

Leave me a note.

I'm sorry.

"Pop, going to a party."

Boom. Easy.

Five seconds.

That way, I don't have

to wait up all night

thinking about

what kind of shit

could be happening

to you out there.

This ain't

Richmond no more.

You get that, right?

Yeah, I get it,

every fucking day!

Hey!

All right,

chill with that.

I'll chill, too.
