[YELLOW OSTRICH'S MARATHON MAN PLAYING]

[UPBEAT ROCK MUSIC]

When I was a boy of 17

I know it's mean

But I told my friend to give up

On her dreams

She hated me

But I knew that dreams were

For the best of us

And for the rest of us

And I didn't want to share

With anyone

I need a way to see

My greatest dance

And make 'em laugh

If I could win the wars

Or lose the battles too

Whichever's true

I can live

In other people's lives

I can't stop putting on

Other people's clothes

I love them till I leave

I am a marathon runner

And my legs are sore

And I'm anxious to see

What I'm running for

I am a hot air balloon

On a sailboat

I would make this my home

If I'd learn to float

I am a marathon runner

And my legs are sore

And I'm anxious to see

What I'm running for

I am a hot air balloon

On a sailboat

I would make this my home

If I'd learn to float

I am a marathon runner

And my legs are sore

And I'm anxious to see

What I'm running for

I am a hot air balloon

On a sailboat

I would make this my home

If I'd learn to float

Shit.

Dude, you are never

gonna believe this.

A shrimp's heart is in its head.

This is f*cking tripping me out.

Really, Cheech?

10:
00 a. m.?

Yeah.

Oh, sorry.

You getting a contact high?

You gonna be all seizuring out on me?

I don't get seizures.

Mm-hmm.

What do you call them again?

They're marijuana-induced fits.

It's a medical condition.

[LAUGHS]

What are you doing tonight?

I don't know. I got to go.

Call me later.

Okay.

[MID-TEMPO ROCK MUSIC]

Hello?

So, uh, what are you

doing tonight?

[CHUCKLES]

I don't know.

That's why I said,

"Call me later. "

I know. I am.

So Ash and I are going to this

Alvin Ailey modern-dance thing.

Looks kind of cool.

You want to join?

Modern dance?

Not exactly what I had in mind

for tonight... or ever, really.

All right.

Let's definitely grab

a beer before I go.

Yeah, I don't know, man.

I think I'm just gonna heat

up some Chinese food.

You mean play video games.

All right.

Why change your routine

at this point, huh?

I got to go. Bye.

[TWINKLING GUITAR MUSIC]

There you go.

Thank you.

Hey.

What can I get for you?

I'll just take a medium

coffee to go.

Thanks.

Such a... Such a beautiful day

out, and it, uh, doesn't...

doesn't feel like

November at all.

Feels like... like maybe

early s... early summer.

June.

[CLEARS THROAT]

Here you go.

Thank you.

Thanks.

Done and done.

[CASH REGISTER DINGS]

La-te-"L"-apostrophe-ticia?

L'ticia?

Okay.

Thanks so much.

Thank you.

Mr. Newman, hello.

Hello.

It's quite an honor.

My name is David Abbott.

I have read all three of your books.

Oh, thank you, David.

You can just call me Sam.

[CHUCKLES]

Sam.

Can you make it out

to "Sticky Fingers"?

That is my avatar name.

Sticky Fingers?

Yes, sir.

Okay.

Question for you.

What inspired your decision to

kill off Tabitha at the end?

Well...

Was it because she had broken

the sacred oath

of the Baldroozen nymphs?

I mean, I guess she

had it coming.

Uh, actually, Sticky,

I was-I was sort of inspired

by the movie studio

that commissioned me

to write it, honestly.

You see, the movie was already

made, so they just paid me to

write exactly what

happened in the m-movie.

You know, that... that's what I do.

Sorry.

Surprise!

Oh. my God!

Sarah!

Hi.

Jesus.

Sarah Anderson.

Holy shit.

Oh, no, actually,

it's Sarah Schipper now.

Wow.

Crazy.

What are you...

Congratulations.

Thank you.

That's ba... that's a rock.

Well... I don't...

What are you... what

are you doing here?

Well, my husband works
