- Yes, let's.

Oh, my God! Oh, my God!

- Miranda! What did you do?

- I said I'd bring the cake.

- It's so beautiful!

- You made this?

It's just something I do.

Oh, my God. It's so perfect,

I don't want to ruin it.

- Oh, come on. That's nonsense, Nancy.

- That's what it's for.

- All right. Here we go.

- No, no, Nancy, Nancy.

- What?

- It's got mustard on it.

- I brought this, use this.

- Okay.

Wait, wait, wait. There are no candles.

It's not a birthday cake

if there are no candles.

- Yes, it is.

- All right, I'll settle this. Watch this.

What a way to eat this.

It's the salt and the sweet.

- It's so good!

- Nancy is so drunk.

- So when's the big night?

- The big night?

- With Kevin.

- Kevin. The big night is...

- You didn't cancel.

- No, I didn't cancel.

Just promise me

that you won't stand him up.

- He works with my husband.

- I... why... why would I do that?

Well, it took me a good six months

to get you to say yes.

- I just really want it to go well.

- I don't know why you care so much.

If it goes great

then you can say that...

you found your soulmate

because of Darlene.


You didn't knock.

- I was...

- You're early.

That's why I didn't knock.

I'm sorry.

There are worse things,

I suppose, like... being late.

Yes, they're here!

Oh, let me get that for you.

Thank you.

Where do you want it?

- Over here?

- That's fine.

All right,

I'll just set that right there.

- Did you cut yourself?

- No.

Oh, no, that's nail polish.

I should put some clothes on.

Would you excuse me?

Okay. Sure.

Oh, I should've offered you

something to drink.

I have fresh squeezed lemonade.

Do I have to pay 50 cents

and drink it out of a little paper cup?

No, I closed the stand.

Bought a little bicycle

with the money I made.
