Synopsis: Adam (Mark Ruffalo) has just reached the 5-year mark in his sex addiction sobriety with help from his sponsor Mike (Tim Robbins). New-comer Neil (Josh Gad) seeks out Adam's help hoping that he'll be his mentor, but Neil doesn't have the same maturity and continues to harass women at work, on the street, and on the subway. Adam has also just met Phoebe (Gwyneth Paltrow), who might be perfect for him, but Adam hasn't been in a relationship since he recognized his addiction to sex, and Phoebe doesn't date addicts. As Adam navigates the romantic relationship waters, Mike struggles connecting to his former drug-addicted son who has just returned home, and Neil develops a relationship with another woman in his sex addicts group, but a platonic friendship might be exactly what he needs.

Not at all. Not an oxymoron.

So, um, how's the dating?



(SIGHS) It's...

Come on, you got five years. It's time.


The point isn't to live like a monk.

It's easy to be skinny on a desert island.

I know. I know. I know.

It's not like booze or drugs. You

don't have to shut it off completely.

Jesus, I'll start dating.

Don't just say that to shut me up.

What do you want me to say?

I don't want you to say anything.

I want you to do.

Okay, fine. I'll do it.

Do. Date.

You are?

Yes. I'm doing it.

Yeah? Good.

Why couldn't I have

picked an easy sponsor?

Why? -I don't know. Maybe

you wanted to recover.

Why are you riding me?


Here. This is for you.



Oh, if you want to bust my balls...

No! No, no, no! I love it!

Are you kidding me?

I always wanted

one of your touchy-feely rocks.

I want one.

I want a touchy-feely rock, too.

So fucking earn it.

So I'm going to hear

your first step after this, right?

Oh, shit.


Dude, I've been working

on it all week.

I totally, totally forgot

that we were doing that today.

You do remember

why you're in this program, right?

Free bagels?

You were court ordered.


Mmm. I know.

Unconsensual touching of other people.

(WHISPERS) I know.

Listen, Neil, you gotta do the work.

You have to do whatever it takes.

You think I like

not having a television or a laptop?

It fucking blows. But guess what?

It's saving my life, so I do it.

Is any of this of interest to you, Neil?

Yes, it's all of interest to me.

Can we please move on?

I'll get it done this week. Thank you.

What happened to your face?




My fellow gastronauts.

I bring you good tidings

and good eatings.

Let's bug out.
