let's catch up play

or watch a double feature.

Oh, it will be amazing.

Unless you have plans.


I did. I mean, I do.

I mean that's okay, right?

Of course!

I was just being silly.

It was sweet!

I should go.

- No! No!

- Yeah!

- I should.

- You don't have to...

I should go.

Uh, Lisette, you don't...

You don't have to go, seriously.

I had a great time.

I will see myself out.

Ah, God!

Did you at least take her to breakfast?

T, it didn't even get that far.

You are a dog!

Oh, come on, cut it out.

She ripped up out of here.

- I wanted her to stay.

- No, you didn't.

Look, I am never going to get in the way

of a brother doing his thing,

but a relationship guru should be

in a relationship longer than a minute.

How about you just stick to doing your

thing and I will stick to doing mine?

Getting you prepped for a national TV tour

is my thing.

People love controversy, Matthew,

and they are going to start digging it up.

What do you want me to do?

You want me to be in a relationship

because you think

it will be better for my image?

Image is everything, don't forget that.

- Stop!

- Stop what?

Stop looking at me like that!

What do you mean?

That's what dads are supposed to do.

Yeah, you are totally right and everything,

but, like, we are in public.

Oh. my bad! My bad!

I wouldn't want to mess up

your little cool points, sorry!

Dad, you are so corny.

- Oh, come on, that was funny.

- Corny!

I thought it was funny.

Hey, hey! Did you just stare down that boy?

Seriously, I am 13,

like 30% or whatever

of 13-year-olds are having sex.

Whoa! Whoa! Wait a minute!

You better be on the right side

of that 30%, young lady.

I was just kidding. It's more like 10%.

And yes, I am an angel.

Hurry up already!
