Charlie goes to the whorehouse?

Did you dress the whores blue because

it's the color of his mother's apron?

I'm sorry...

How did you know

where to send your manuscript?

I looked it up.

Oh, of course.

Is it weird for you that you

used to be so successful?

There's the man.

Cyrus, you gotta remind me

about these things.

You have to check

your messages, buddy.

I would've worn something nicer.

No one cares what you're wearing.

You are a genius.

Don't use that word.

Mr. Perrotta, over here.

- Calvin always had talent.

- Over here.

But that, unfortunately, is not enough.

- Langdon, right here!

- All I did, really...

...was guide him in the right direction

and, uh, like, pass the baton.



I'm Mabel.

Oh, do I know you?

No, no.

Do you want my number?

It's a one-off, that book.


It's the first album of an indie band.

Thank you.

It has that sort of

unselfconscious verve...

...that, um... That you don't, uh...

Then, of course, there's

the second album syndrome, which...

We don't talk about that.

Everyone loves this book,

but we wanna hear what you're doing now.

What matters is right now.

What are you working on? Are you?

They love you, then they throw you away.

I mean, if I'm gonna include anybody...

- It's actually easier...

...if you've only ever been mediocre.

If you've been at the top...

Hi. Sorry.

- Hi.

- It can kill you.

Yeah, Salinger

had the right idea. He...

Write what you can, then,

pssh, disappear, you know?

So I've had a drink.

But no coke. I didn't...

No coke.

I didn't do any coke.


Sorry I'm late, buddy.


Scotty, what the f*ck?


She's so cute.


Your dog. She's so cute.

Oh, he's a boy dog.

He just peed like a girl.

Have we met before?

I don't think so.

Do you mind if I draw him?
