I was very neat and organized.

Well, I should get back, s o


All right. See you later.

[ Whis tling ]

[ Paper Crumples ,

Thuds In Tras h Can ]

I don't know, man.

I think it's official.

I'm in love with Summer.

I love her s mile.

I love her hair. I love her knees .

l love this heart-shaped birthmark

she has on her neck.

I love the way she sometimes

licks her lips before she talks.

l love the s ound of her laugh.

l love the way s he looks

when s he's s leeping.

[ Pop ]

She's like the wind

I love how I hear this s ong

every every time I think of her.

I love how she makes me feel.


Like anything's possible,

or like- I don't know. Like

Like life is worth it.

This is not good.

[ Tom ]

She likes Magritte and Hopper.

And we talked

about Bananafish

for like 20 minutes.

We're so compatible,

it's insane.

She's well, she's not

like I thought at all.

She's amazing.

[ Rachel ]

Oh, boy.


Just 'cause some

cute girl likes the same

bizarro crap you do,

that doesn't make her

your soul mate, Tom.

- [ Male Voice ]

Red team wins!

- What do you mean?

- It's off.

- what?

- Me and Summer.

- Was it ever on?

No, but it could have been,

in a world where

good things happen to me.

- Yeah, well, that's not

really where we live.

- No.

[ Video Game Sounds ]


[ Sighs ]

So, what happened?

All right. You ready?


So there we are.

Nine more floors to ride,

just me and her.

Hey, Summer.


How was your weekend?

It was good.

Can you believe that shit?

I'm sorry. what shit?

- I think I missed something.

- She said, ''It was good.''

Emphasis on the ''good.''

She basically said she spent

the weekend having sex with

some guy she met at the gym.

Skank. Whatever.

I'm over it.

What the hell
