For me, law school wasn't easy...

and I haven't had much of a social life

since coming to the city either, but...

I still consider myself a loyal adherent

to the disco movement.

- It's a movement?

- Sort of.

What I found terribly encouraging

was the idea...

that when the time in life came

to have a social life...

there'd be all these great places

for people to go to...

because, as you'll remember,

for many years, there were none.

- Yeah.

- What I didn't realize...

is that they'd get

so impossible to get into.

- [Man] Let's call it a night.

- No. Wait. I have an idea.

[ Man]

Hey, Jimmy. Here. Take this.

- [ Man #2] Jimmy.

- Thanks.


[ Chattering ]

- Hi.

- Hi.

- Oh, you're Des's friend.

- Yeah. Hi.

[ Car Door Closes ]

Where are Marshall and Steve?

They've gone back to the hotel.

Jimmy, come on.

- I can't believe it.

- Jimmy. Let's go.

[ Disco]

- Your body, my body,

- They wanted me to apologize for them.

- They were really bushed.

- What a disaster.

- No.

- Everybody move your body)

- I can't believe it.

- Wow.

Everybody work your body

Your body, my body

Everybody work your body

- Do you like nightmares?

- No.

Well, I do.

It's not obviously connected, but...

I think that's what made me a little more

tolerant of the guys at Hampshire.

- What do you mean?

- You were a bit critical.

The guys there preferred women

more laid-back.

I'm laid-back.

Well, for whatever reason,

you didn't have much of a social life there.

I had a social life.

Just not one of those

terrible pretend marriages.

The Hampshire guys were jerks -

hippie-dippie suburbanites with all this hair...

and extremely dim intellectual interests.

I'm sorry. I don't consider the guy who did

the Spider-Man comics a serious writer.

Alice, one thing I've noticed
