I feel bad about, you know,

earlier when I was laughing

like a hyena

when Mr. Thompson

was making all those

jokes at your expense.

Well, they weren't

really at my expense.

No, no, no, they were.

It was a shot

across your bow.

Yeah? You think?

It wasn't that funny.

I mean, it was,

but I shouldn't

have been laughing,

'cause I'm your best man,

and I don't want this guy

getting in your head, okay?

'Cause he's in my head

a little bit.

It just...

It's... I don't know.

I don't want you to forget

that you're bringing something

to the table, too, okay?

You've got that...

That Carlness.

That little

twinkle in your eye.

And you're giving it

to me right now.

That little glint

that says they're

never gonna beat you.

They can't lay

a glove on you.

And don't forget that,

because you can't put

a price tag on it.

End of sermon.

Well, thanks, buddy,

I appreciate it.

But, you know, I really think

he was kidding around.


Guy's got a kind of

a weird sense of humor.

Besides, it's not like

I'm gonna be working for him

for the rest of my life.

You know,

I got plans of my own.

There it is.

There's that Carlness.

They can't lay

a glove on you,

can they?

God, I admire you.

I really do.

That's no secret.


Thanks, buddy. Thanks.

Oh, I wanted to give you this.

You know,

for being my best man.

You got to be shitting me.

It's a flask!

You like it?

I love this.


Hey, you know, that reminds

me of the groomsmen outfits.

I really like them,

but I'm wondering,

should mine

be a little different

since I'm the best man?

What did you have in mind?

Just like a little

insignia or a patch.

I don't want

people to be confused.

I'm talking

something understated,

like a lightning bolt.

Nothing big.
