You remember Brazil, right?

Doing that this early in the morning?

The Brazil conversation?

- Not...

- All right. All right. I'll do it.

Well, did you get your ticket yet?

I mean, not yet, but I will.

No. I didn't think so.

We're going to the concert.

No, no, no.

We're not going to the concert.

Because as soon as I sell this car

I'm using that money to buy a ticket.

I'm serious this time.

You're not gonna talk me out of it, okay?


You're still coming with me, right?

Yeah, I'm coming with you, okay?

For the millionth time.



then stop being such a downer about it.

- All right?

- I'm not a downer.

It's just that you've talked about Brazil

every week for the last 4 years,

so, it's like the boy who cried wolf,

then got gang-banged by the wolf

- and all his friends.

- I don't wanna hear another word from you.

Real quick, can we go over this

whole moving-to-another-continent idea?

I mean, I'm down, I just wanna make sure

that we're not gonna regret it forever.

That's a good idea.

Yeah, okay.

This is how I plan

to retire when we move to Brazil.

- Shit, you trying to smoke that?

- What? No.

- You wanna snort it?

- How would...?

- You're fucking crazy. I'm in, though.

- No, no, no. This is guayusa.

- I don't get it.

- It's an Amazonian super leaf,

packed with caffeine

and natural antioxidants.

I've been researching this stuff

for months.

You wanna know how much it costs

- to ship and produce this one bottle?

- Four seventy-nine?

Seventy-five cents.

And they sell it here for $4.79,

for people...

For people like that.

That's a $3 profit margin

that these companies are making.

That's what you're doing

in your spare time, Chester?

Researching bottled drinks?

- That's weird.

- Oh, shut up. That's not weird.
