trying on a new style.

He had a lot of time

on his hands.

When was the last time you had

relations with the deceased?

He wasn't deceased

the last time we had relations.

Primo, that's your name?

And that's all you do?

You write poetry?


That's great.

So, what,

do you have last name, Primo?

Or is that like a

one-name-poet kinda thing?







Sorry. My mother

would drive her car

off the George Washington Bridge

if I brought home a German.

Seriously, I'm not kidding.

But it was very nice

to meet you.

Mare! Here.

Oh, my God.


Greg's here.

Who's Greg?

And he brought that little

fuckin' whore, too.

I don't remember a Greg.

Yeah, you do.

Lazy eye, big dick?

Oh, Greg.

That Greg, yeah.

Alright, I have to go talk to him.


Mm. I just want to talk

to him, okay? Alright?

Oh, and kinda cute German poet

Come on, you need

to meet him. Come on.

Hey, Primo, honey.

Primo. Achtung.

And that's how

I met Primo Schultz.

A man who should've disappear

into the forgotten wastelands

of "Thanks for the drinks,

here's my fake phone number."

A man who drank grasshoppers,

which, if I recall

from my short stint

working at the old folks' home,

is pretty much the combination

of Crme de menthe

and half-and-half.

And a man who,

if I had had the time

and ability to meet them

all that night,

- would've come in seventeenth.

- Hey, babe.

And yet, in the course

of that first evening,

the seventeenth man's

tortured-poet routine

and his world-weary

artist shtick

somehow seemed to turn

from just plain unattractive

to an oddly interesting,

seen-it-all, done-it-all charm.

There was a distinct success
