Synopsis: Todd is at the pinnacle of his game; a great job, great friends and more women than he knows what to do with. He owns a lounge that frequents some of the finest women and talent mid-town Chicago has to offer. Unsatisfied with his level of romantic achievements, he goes on a quest to date three women at one time. He believes the laughable exhaustion of just keeping his story straight is his only penance to pay until he finds out that all three women share a common bond and the aftermath is more than he bargained for.

So, Yuki, over there on

the other side, all right?

This is it, O.

This is it, bro.

It's almost time.

Yes, it is. Your dreams

are finally coming true.

Yeah, man. I grew up visiting

these comedy clubs with my dad,

and I always wanted something

like that for myself one day.

I mean, not a club but,

you know, a lounge,

with music and comedy.

The whole experience.

That's exactly what

we're going to give them.

The whole experience,

and then some.

That's right.

You know, this is

one of those times

you just need to stop,

breathe it in.

Yeah. Never forget

this moment,

because it never gets

any sweeter.

Hey, hey, hey.

Hey, Pop.

How you feeling?

You cutting it close.

You open this weekend.

Yeah, but we almost there.

All right.

The legendary Nate Rider.


They ain't killed me yet, son.

You know, my father

went to see you

when you opened up for Eddie

Murphy's first world tour.

Yeah, that was a time

when I was a young thoroughbred.

Now I'm an old fart.

They try to put my old behind

out to pasture.

Yeah, well, you know,

everyone needs to move on

to the next stage in life


Oh, okay. Well, you tell me

when you get there

to that "moving on" stage,

because right now

I'm just at the next level

of my life, man.

It's a sweet level when

you're old enough to enjoy life.



Oh, you know what?

You ought to let me

open up for you, man.

A few nights a week. You know,

I'll bring the crowd in, dawg.

You know, look, Dad,

we're kind of going

with a different crowd.

You know, a younger,

chic business thing.

Okay. See, that's a clue

that you youngsters,

you think you know something.

But you don't know nothing!

I've got a degree in Marketing,

a graduate degree from Yale,

and I just resigned

as VP of Marketing

in the number one urban

clothing line in the world.

Whoo! And what that got to do

with a gin and tonic, son? Huh?

No, no, I'm serious.

I have learned more

in the back alleys of Memphis

than you can any day

in some shirt-and-tie mortuary.

An office job is not a mortuary.

Further proof you know nothing.

Dad, time to go.

Hey, just trying

to help you out.

Oh, by the way, son,

y'all need some

crushed velvet curtains

and some lava lamps.

Too shiny.

Oh, man. They don't make them

like that anymore.

You can say that again.


Oh, hey, boss.

Don't forget.

We got those talent auditions

lined up for tomorrow.

Oh, cool.

Yeah, this place

is gonna combine

East Coast swagger

with L.A. style.

Yeah. I can't wait.

Stop it!

I don't know why you act

like you don't like it, girl.

Ticklish! Stop!

You can't get away from me.

You only run

because you like to get caught.

Oh, I run because you like

to chase.

Ew. Mm-mm.

You are sweaty.

Go shower.

When did you get so prissy?

You used to like sweat.

Yeah, I mean, there's the sweat

that you make,

and then there's the sweat

that we make.

I prefer the latter.

Intellectually stimulating

and sexually elusive.

Sex on the brain.

Oh, come on, girl.

You know I love you.

Yeah, you know sex is not love.

No, no, it's not.

But you bring the sexy

out of me.

Oh, do I? Okay.

Which reminds me.

How do you like your dress

for this weekend?

Um, yeah, that...

That's cute.

It's shiny, but I already know

what I'm wearing this weekend.

Yeah, but babe, it's just,

you know, important for people

to see someone beautiful

every time you walk in.

Okay, now, I know I agreed

to help host this,

but it's a one-time thing.

You can get some little

college kid

to wear this little

itty-bitty dress.

Yeah, but I asked you to do it.
