Help me out.

Come on, Mel,

let's take another shot.

Oh, oh.


How's it going, man?

- Good.

- Good, good.

- How are you?

- Great, great.

- Young Daniel.

- How are you, sir?

- Good, man. How you doing?

- Good, good.



Is it all gone?

You are drunk.

I got a full cup now.

Mnh. Can you give me

a ride home?

I didn't drive here.

I'm going to Dan's now.

That's okay, you can just

drop me off on the way.

No, you're not

on the way to Dan's.

You're on the way

to my place.

Yes, I am.


I mean, it would be

so much easier

if I just lived with Dan.

Okay, well, f*** you.

You're giving me a ride home

because there's no one

else at this party.

So serious.

Will you listen to me!

I'm trying to have

a serious conversation.

You never listen to me.

- Oh, really?

- I'm gonna marry Dan

and have his babies

by the time I'm 26.

Oh, yeah? Well, does Dan

know about this marriage?

Do you know - Do you know

how long we've been together?

- How long?

- Are you ready?


Six f***in' years.


I know!

Mnh. Mnh.

Oh, God.


Oh, I missed you.


Are you trying to take

advantage of me?



Shut up and kiss me.


- Drunk, drunk.

- Shut - I'm not drunk.

How much did you drink?

I didn't drink anything.

That's a bold-faced lie.



Tell me about your night.

Well, mmm...

You left me, so I

hung out with Jessica

and she was making out

with this guy.

That's very nice.

Yeah, and then...

The party was sh*t.

Everyone left.

It was dying.

It was boring, so Jess

asked for a ride home,

- I gave her a ride home -

- You drove?

And then, I came

to see you.

You drove here?

Yeah, it's fine.

What the f***, Mel?

Don't do that sh*t.

Shh! It's okay.

It's so stupid.

It's not okay.

I wasn't - I'm not even

that drunk, Dan.

- You're really drunk.

- I'm not really drunk.

Just promise me,

next time,

you will call me

if you're f***ing drunk.

- Call you?

- And you're not gonna be

an idiot and drive all

across town to drop Jessica off

- and then come back over here.

- I wasn't the only one

who was drinking.

You were drinking.

Stop. Can you keep your

voice down, please?

My roommates

are trying to sleep.

What, I'm gonna call you

and wake you up?

No, you're sleeping.

I'm perfectly capable -

It doesn't matter. Just don't

do it. Don't be a f***ing idiot.


Don't do it.

Just don't.


F*** you, man.

- Where are you going?

- I'm going home,

'cause, apparently,

I'm not welcome here.

How are you getting home?

Stop. You're not driving.

- Don't touch me!

You're not gonna f***ing

drunk-drive right now, Mel.

Get off me!



- What the f***, Mel?

- I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Don't f***ing touch me.

Oh! F***.

It hurts. Ow!



I'm sorry, Dan.

I'm sorry.

Great, you're dressed.

Hi, I'm Dan.

Nice to meet you.

I'm Mel.


Okay, all the hard work

has been done.

It should heal

on its own.

You don't even

have to see a doctor.

All right.

Okay, great.

So how did this happen?


I tripped.

I just tripped and hit

my head on my dresser.


Okay, guys, that's pretty

much all I need to know.

- Okay. Thank you.

- All right. Thanks.

My shoes.


How you doing?

Yo, yo.

I pulled those records

you wanted.


Thank you.

The shipping labels should

be printing right now,

and if you could just

get those all squared away

and send them

to that list

of journalists

I sent you.


You got it.

Cool hat.

Thank you.

Hey, wait.

You want a coffee?

- Coffee.

- I need one really bad.
