- Please make that happen.

- Yes.

And I trust you're looking after

my sister, as best you're capable?

You know, Owen, I'd be lying...

...if I said that I'd pick you

as the ideal mate for Isabel...

...but if you're going to continue

this courtship... should look into making

an honest woman out of her.

I'm not taking relationship advice

from a beige earthworm.


- It was really nice seeing you.


I'll be back in town on business shortly.

I hope we can get together again,

just the two of us.

I love you, Caleb.

- I love you.

- Love you.

Hey. I know that family

is a touchy subject for you...

...and maybe you feel

like you don't have one...

...but if you could make more of an effort

with mine, that would mean a lot to me.

Your family hates me.

They don't hate you.

They just don't know you.

All they know is what Caleb tells them

and you treat him like garbage.

He's a self-righteous prick.

You're both full of shit.

You know what? You're right.

I'm gonna make more of an effort.

- Oh, yeah?

- Yeah.

I love you, and I owe you at least that much.

Thank you, Owen.

What do you say we celebrate my

newfound transformation with a little sex?

I'm gonna have to pretend it was

another man's penis inside me.

I'm okay with that.


What's going on?

It normally doesn't take you this long.

- It's been like 30 seconds.

- I know, is everything okay?

Maybe it's your complete lack of enthusiasm.

Well, your balls smell real bad.

I wanted to keep us in the moment.

Just take a shower next time.

You know what, I'm gonna go

jerk off in the bathroom.

Don't use the towels.




What's wrong?

Nothing, it's just nerves.

Do you want me to take you home?

We can always reschedule.
