on my pants leg?" I heard it.

- Come on, Larry. Get dressed.

- Do you want a beer?

- No, I gotta go home.

- Oh, come on. One beer.

[Russian Accent]

Come, Patruska, we shall dance.

We shall dance in the snow.


- [Growling]

- [Chuckles]

You're crazy.

No. Look, come on, Larry.

I gotta wash my hair, and I got

a lot of things to do. Come on.

A glass of beer

will do you good.

Would you please

put your pants on?

Hi. Buenas noches, seor. Seorita.

How are you? Good.

- Who is that?

- It's Nick Kessler.

He's a crazy guy. He saved up

all his money to go to Mexico.

Wanted to see the ruins.

You know, get into the primitive thing.

So he quit his job and everything, and

he took off for Mexico City on Monday.

- Two beers, Ray.

- Yesterday Monday?

Right. So he got off the plane,

and he ate a taco...

and he got a terrible case

of the shits...

so he took

the next plane back.

He spent two and a half hours

in Mexico.

He says it stinks.

I wonder if they

sell diaphragms in Mexico.

They sell crosses in Mexico.

- Hey-hey, Barney!

- How's the actor?

How you doing, Barney?

This is Sarah, my girlfriend.

- Didn't I meet you at the New School?

- I don't think so.

- Did you ever take a course

in modern art with Ben Probst?

- No.

- That's cool.

You know anybody needs an abortion?

- Not lately.

I know someone clean and dependable.

A lot of butchers running around.

I'll be sure to let you know

when I get knocked up.

Hey, no offense.

I just get a cut if I steer business.

- I'll see you later, Barney.

- Oh.

- Excuse me.

- You'd make a great model.

Let me know if you wanna

come sit for me.

You ever done any modeling?

My name's Barney.

- No.

- You remind me of a Rubens.

- Can he paint?

- I doubt it.

Oh, I want you
