Awesome.

Does Mom know

you drive like that?

Whatever. Can you get your stuff?

I'm missing 90210.

You're lucky you have

that gear in your mouth,

'cause they need your teeth

to identify your remains.

- Shut up, you're such a dick!

- Bye, Nicole.

...time apart, that's all.

- Where is this coming from?

You can come, all right?

It's not...

Never mind. You don't want me

to come, I'm not coming.

- Fine, then I want you out.

- Am I a partner or not?

You don't support me and my band.

I support the band.

I love the band.

Just get in the car.

Don't hurry back.

Come on!

You missed a spot right here.

Can I clear these for you, sir?

Any more peanuts?

They have another crate

in the galley.

Thanks.

Oh, dear,

I'll just get you a towel.

Oh, dear, I'm so sorry.

I'm sorry.

I'm fine, thank you.

There's towels in here.

So I don't really need...

- Everything all right, sir?

- Yeah, everything's good.

Your attention, please.

There has been a luggage carousel

change for flight 640.

It will now be on carousel 4.

Don't.

I'm Oliver.

- I just thought we'd chat...

- Blah, blah, blah.

- See, it's ruined.

- What's ruined?

Our little secret.

Actually, I think the stewardess

was kind of onto us, so...

Well, she'll have to be killed.

- I'm Oliver.

- You keep saying that.

Wow, you don't make it easy

for a guy.

I think I made it

pretty easy for you, Oliver.

So, what's Bon Jovi do?

- Who?

- The boyfriend.

Ex-boyfriend.

Yeah, I noticed that.

So, what happened there?

What, are we friends now?

I'd say we're a little bit more

than friends.

Bon Jovi get a big record contract

or something?

His name's not Bon Jovi.

He plays guitar.

- Everyone plays guitar.

- You play guitar?

No.

- Strike two.

- Strike two?

What was strike one?

Would you like to sit

next to your girlfriend?

Thank you very much,

I'd love to.

So, what's your deal, Oliver?

You're in New York on business?

Me? Oh, thank you for asking.

No, actually I'm here

visiting my brother.

He's going to be a lawyer.

He's in law school, so...

- Is that what you wanna do, too?

- I don't know.

I just finished school.

Don't people usually

graduate in June?

Yeah.

It's almost a year ago.

You still don't have a job?

What are you, my mom?

I don't know, when you look at me,

do you see your mom?

- What sign are you?

- What sign am I?

Cancer.

Strike three.

Thanks.

It's Emily.

I'd have never guessed Emily.

Don't get mugged.

How was your trip?

You know... it was alright.

Who's that?

Don't be shy. C'mere.

Meet my brother.

I thought you'd like to catch up.

This is my girlfriend.

Hi. I'm Oliver.

Nice to meet you.

Nice to meet you too, Oliver.

I'm Carol. I've heard a lot about you.

I'm sorry, I thought you were...

You thought she was deaf, huh?

Yeah.

Thank you very much.

- Where'd it go?

- What?

- My jacket, it was right there.

- What jacket?

I have seen no jacket.

What?

What can I get for 20?

20? Dollars?

You know, kissing a smoker

is like licking an ashtray.

Really?

What's screwing one like?

- You stalking me?

- Yes.

Oh, somebody stole my jacket.

You wanna do something?

What, are we friends now?

Here she is.

- I thought you were using the ladies'.

- I was, but...

I just came out to get some air.

- Hi, I'm Brent, Emily's father.

- Hi, Oliver.

- Christine.

- My stepmother.

Ready for some Guggenheim?

You know what?

Would you mind if I skipped the museum?

- Christine took off work.

- I know, I'm sorry, it's just...

Would you mind if I tell them?

No, not at all.

Go ahead.

Oliver is getting

some test results back today,
