- Please.

Yeah, well, see this?

See that? That?

I am this far, one second,

one millimetre

one second from being legal.

So I'm gonna have to ask you

to come back

when you're

When that centimetre's up.

Well, that would be

tomorrow morning, then.

I like the way you dance.

I mean, don't get me wrong.

What's that?

Just a little something I got

from down home.

You're a classy guy.

I've heard about you.

This is moonshine. Is that ?

Is this moonshine, right?

- It's okay. It's just from potatoes.

- What's it gonna do to me?

Go ahead. It's fine. Natural.

But step away from the desk,

will you?

That's like fire!

- Sorry I made a mess.

- It's okay.

- Can I ask you a question?

- Shoot.

I heard that you've slept with every

single girl in every one of your clubs.

Sort of a prerequisite.

I'm just wondering if that's true or not.

Well, you know, it ain't entirely untrue,

if that's what you mean.

I'm just curious

why you haven't taken a stab at me.

I just met you five minutes ago.

I think it was six.

Tick, tick, tick



- Come on, one more time.

- One more time?

Come on, Althea,

even Superman has his limits.

That's the problem with you,

you know, men. You know?

Your batteries run out.

Because we women,

our batteries never run out.

- We can go on and on and on.

- Well, then, go f*ck a woman.

"Then, go f*ck a woman."

I do f*ck women.

Excuse me?

You are not the only person

in this club

to have had every single woman

in this club.

After one night,

she's moving in with you?

Well, you know, this girl,

she had it rough.

- Grew up in an orphanage.

- Hey. Hey, buddy.

Hey. Are you that guy

in that little sex paper?

- Could be.

- Love the pictures. How do I subscribe?

Where did you come upon

the newsletter?

Found it in a bathroom
