Robert De Niro, Jack Nicholson,

and Clint Eastwood.

And it says here

all expenses are paid.

That's a country music town,

that's not a film town.

No, no, no, no.

Nashville has become very hip.

Very hip.

Well, that's what I'm worried about.

My hip.

Sitting on an airplane

for too long a time,

what if I get a clot in my butt?

Look, I've heard of this film festival

and I know

this is a prestigious award.

I don't think you'll get a clot

in your butt.

[both laugh]

Look, I'm just saying if you don't go,

you're a bigger asshole

than I ever thought.

Oh, well, I guess you would know.

You've made

such great career moves.

[both laughing]



Nice. Schmuck.

[chuckles softly]

[jet engines whirring]


[woman on PA, indistinct]

Good morning!

And where are we off to today?

- Nashville.

- Nashville, huh?

That's a great live music town.

You gonna kick those heels up

a little bit?

Well, a very little bit. There you go.

- Thank you, Mr. Edwards.

- Mm-hmm.

There you are. Okay.

I'm gonna have to ask you

to get in this line over here

'cause this one

is for first class passengers only.

Holy cow. But I am first class.

[chime to buckle seatbelts]

[country music playing]


[indistinct chattering]

[engine rumbling]

[tires screeching]

Yeah? Then why the hell

are there pictures of you two

hugging and laughing

all over her Facebook page?

Oh, bullshit!

Don't tell me I'm being irrational.

You told me you were going there

with Andrew and you lied.

It's just a simple fact.

If you're just friends, then why lie?

Oh, you're so full of shit.

You must think I'm the biggest

idiot on the planet.

Look, I can't talk about this

right now. I'm working.

I do, too, have a job.

I'm picking up some old asshole
