Can I just...

Oh, no.

Sorry, I'm, like, a little...

Just loosen up a little.


Look this way when you do it.

I just thought of it in, like,

terms of not a bird.


Although the traditional sense

of the word "bird" just...

Look up here.

That's cool.


open your mouth real quick.

Here, I'm gonna put this in.

I can see your fillings.


I don't have any fillings.

Oh, what is that

underneath your two front teeth?

It's a splint.

- I used to have braces.

- Uh-huh.

And they thought my teeth

were gonna move...

Do tell.

Apart from each other.

Okay, that's good.

You can get up.


- Ready?

- I am ready.

- There you go.

- Okay.

I'll be ready

for your swift kick this time.


And whoa!



Actually, you know what?

Sorry, I forgot to do this.

- Okay.

- So this may...

Just make sure

I don't fall over on you.

Okay. Okay.


- Yeah.

- Okay.

Gonna do this quick.


All right, we got it.

Lovely, lovely, lovely, lovely.

You're awesome, girl.

Start moving out.

All right, pack it up.

I like it when they're more

from the back, like...

Here, go back out.

Let me see.

Oh, yeah. Okay.

I like more

from the back and not, like...

You know, like,

from the side, like these.

- Mm-hmm.

- No, I agree.

I think you should...

you should run towards it.

You know what I mean?

Yeah. No.

Does it cross over like this?

Yeah, just start...

You go, like, one over?

Yeah, and then maybe

you should go under.

I just like to look at it.

I don't know how to do it.

I think the blue would look

really nice with her.


And she also has

these really great red tights

that I think will go

really well.

Oh, perfect.

And this bra, like,

really stretches really well,

and we can cut it

without it just, like,

completely falling apart.

So I think... I just think

it'll also look really good.

As long as she's got

the red tights...

- Yeah.

- I don't care.

And she needs something

on top also.

I don't know.

She's just in the trunk,

looking kind of scared,

and, uh...

- Can you hold this?

- Yeah, hold on a second.

'Cause we're gonna want to shoot

into the sun,

so maybe if you're, like,

over here,

kind of getting a...


This kind of deal.


Stop it.

How does that feel?


You know, we're just gonna do

sort of a reveal kind of thing

with her just in the trunk,

looking terrified of you

or whatever.

And then we're gonna kind of

break them into stages.

It'll be, like,

number one, you know,

lifting her up out of the trunk

with your hands

kind of underneath her.

You don't like it, but, like,

have you ever dated anyone

who really liked short hair?

Mm-mm, I've only dated people

who like long hair.

I had a boyfriend who had, like...

He, like, made it, like,

a thing.

Like, he, like, fetishized it.

Oh, so you cut your hair short?

No, no, no, no, no.

Like, he tried to get me

to cut my hair,

but I wouldn't.

And then you broke up?

And then I broke up.

Well, we broke up

because I cheated on him.

Anyone else been in here?

The two of us and...

the guy who found her.

When was that?

I got the call

about an hour ago,

maybe a little more

than an hour.

He still here?

Yeah, we got him in the car.

Jeez, that's a lot of blood.

All right.

Let's go talk to the boyfriend,

I guess.

Feeling all right?

Yeah, I'm fine.


Let's go.

Actually, I think she needs

a little bit more.

Ooh, I didn't realize

it was so easy to tear a shirt.

Keep this one straight

and then this one

as much forward as possible.

And then if you can just

kind of look back here.


That's out,

and we're good to go.

- Okay.

- Okay.

Boom, boom, boom, I got it.

I'm so fast, I have to...

You keep losing the...

the rope there.


Here, actually,

you should put it...

you should put it back on.

No, the rope behind your back.

- Yeah?

- Yeah, it's a good look.

Yeah, like that.

You're not gonna get involved

in that?



No, cheers,

you looked really good in them.

- Thank you.

- You're so cute.

Did you like the red tights?

They're yours.

- Yeah.

- Thank you.

I'll wear them sometime.

I don't know

when I might ever find...

Like, if you're

on another photo shoot?

Yeah, if you ever want

to reshoot that.

- Yeah. Oh, yeah.

- Maybe we will.

Callie? Hey.

Oh, hey, how are you?

I'm all right.

How are you?

I'm good, thanks.


- Oh, I'm sorry.

- This is Billy.

Hey, nice to meet you.

And this is Alex.

- Nice to meet you.

- Hi. Nice to meet you.

Are you guys

enjoying yourselves?

Mm-hmm, yeah.

- Cool.

- Totally.

I'm sorry.

Oh, my... yeah, I know.

It's really bad.

No, I know.


- No, it's fine.

- It's fine.

It was, like,

this stupid accident.

The bartender was shaking

a cocktail yesterday,

and I, like,

leaned in for some ice,

and my eye was just, like,

right there.

- Ooh.

- Full momentum.

Oh, it looks really cool,


Can I touch it?

No, it hurts.

Don't touch it.

What are you guys up to?

We just got done

with a photo shoot.

Oh, you're the photographer

that you work with.

The photographer.

That's right.

Well, can I get you guys

another drink,

or are you all set, or...

We're okay.

Okay, well, enjoy yourselves.

- Nice to meet you.

- Bye.

Watch out.

I'll give you one too.


Okay, I'll try that.

Oh, let me try this one.
