My Best Friend's Girl

Synopsis: Dustin, an amiable guy, is in love with Alexis, a coworker. When she tells him she just wants to be friends, he hires his roommate Tank, a fast-talking, amoral scoundrel who has a side business: men whose women have dumped them hire Tank to take their ex-girlfriends out on the date from Hell, to drive the women back into their old boyfriends' arms. He takes out Alexis who, against her better judgment, decides she needs some randy fun, so Tank is in a quandary: take Alexis up on her offer, or stay true to his friend. More complications ensue as the wedding of Alexis's sister approaches. Tank seeks advice from his father, Dustin pursues Alexis, and questions of self-worth need answers.

- I gotta warn you, the stereo's busted.

- That's okay.

I've got a little bit

of a headache, so...


It's been like this for a month!

I got it.

These are for your ears!


You look offended by the song!

But if you really listen,

it's not really vulgar.

It's about a guy, he's in love. And

I know he's saying, "Pop the pussy."

But it's a metaphor for, like:

"I wanna hug you!"

Pop that pussy

Hug me, hug me, hug me, hug me

It's not about fucking.

It's about taking a relationship... another level!

- What?

- Yeah. And now we see it.

So we should listen to the whole thing

so you know the story.

Listen, listen.

No, it's easy, all right? She's not

even gonna make it past dinner.

By the time I'm done, she'll know

the difference between...

...what's in the hand

and what's in the bush.


- Yeah, we said 7:00.

- I know.

I tutor this high-school girl.

She's part of my Head Start program.

And she's slow, learning-disabled.

It's sad.

Every time I come,

I feel like I'm wasting my time.

- You know, not in her eyes.

- Actually...

No one is doubting your memory,

which is both vivid and damning.

But if I could, I'd like to briefly

challenge points four and seven.

Oh, really? Because, you know what?

I didn't even get to mention...

Oh, my God.

Please stop. Please stop.

Please stop.

So I'll call you later?

- And I'll call the cops, you asshole.

- I had a nice time tonight.

- Hello.

- Josh, I just went on...

...the worst date of my life.

- Rachel.

- Hey, look, I'm gl...

- I'm so, so sorry.

Why are you sorry?

Baby, I was the one who...

- Can we maybe, you know, grab a...?

- Yeah. Yeah, no, that sounds great.

- Yeah.

- I'd really like that.

Listen, I'm out with a friend right now.

But can I call you?

- What about dinner tomorrow night?
