Don't ask me why.

Maybe he's got a Minnie

Mouse fetish or something.

You'll definitely catch his eye.

And then what?

And then you stir up

some conversation...

- About what?

- Uh, whatever.

- TV, sports, movies...

- Sex.

And then you invite

him out to your car,

where Kip will be

waiting with the...

Chinese food's here.


Sorry, it took


What's the point of

calling in an order

if it takes 20 minutes

to get your fucking food?

- Is this the bait?

- Uh-huh.

Shelly, this is Jane.

Jane, this is Shelly.

- Hey.

- Nice to meet you.

Oh, sorry,

my hands a bit sticky.

I got fucking duck sauce

and soy sauce shit all over it.

Uh, yeah, Jane is another girl

Liam's sleeping with.

I went to her work

to bitch her out, um...

- we kind of became friends.

- Hoes before bros.

Are you hungry?

Uh, no, I'm cool.

Thank you.

You're a good friend

for doing this.

Alex says you two

go way back in high school.

- She's not in yet.

- Well, it's not like that.

- It's just like a lot...

- It's okay, it's okay.

I wasn't into at first.

But this guy is a manipulative,

narcissistic, sociopath,

and I've met all kinds.

Well, if he's so terrible, then why

were you dating him in the first place?

Can't you tell

by looking at her?

She makes poor life choices.

All right, if I make

poor life choices,

I would've slept with you.

There's two types of guys

in this world, Shelly.

There's the type

that seem like assholes

and then turn out

to be all right.

And then there's the type

that seem all right

and then turn out to be

total fucking assholes.

Liam being the latter of course.

Uh... how much

would I stand to make?

Four-way split.

Half a mil each.

Not a bad day's work.

All right, I'm in.

Shelly, thank you so much.
