Oh, my God, this is so cold!

What?

Get over here.

Go get it!

Come here, perro.

You wanna play some more?

Sh*t.

Southland traffic,

crash downtown L.A...

- Good morning.

- ... east 101 at Coldwater...

I had to call,

because I'm experiencing the same thing,

and I could use your advice, bro...

- Can you blame her?

- No, I guess not.

You have to change the way you think.

If a woman sees that you're...

Can I help you?

Yeah, my wife and I

would like to, you know,

keep an eye on our nanny

while we're away from the house.

Right, right.

We have all kinds of household objects

with built-in cameras.

Or you could do it yourself.

You can hide this one in anything-

you know, TV, clock-radio, VCR,

whatever.

How much is this?

This one goes for sixty-nine bucks,

and it comes with the receiver.

Hmm. Do- do I-

do I need a license or something?

No, you're good to go.

It's totally legal.

I don't know.

It's hard. I mean-

Dan, you have to find out

what's important to her, okay?

I mean, you have to

pay close attention

and really listen to what she says

with an open mind,

... some guys that actually

keep a small notebook handy,

and whenever they notice something

important to the girl...

Beautiful.

Testing... testing.

Ahh.

No! Bad boy!

Bad boy! Ohh!

Perro feo, eso no se hace!

Slo que hay un trfico terrible.

Eso es Los ngeles, eh?

Bueno.

Ya trancaste las puertas?

- S, mam.

- Las dos?

So, any sex with the ex?

Shut up.

- Did you see him?

- No, thank God.

Good. No drunk dialing either,

right?

Yeah, Jen,

I got hammered with my parents

and snuck up to my room.

I wouldn't put it past you.

- Okay, I'm hanging up now.

- No, no, don't.

Mmm.

Me too. It was very, very powerful.

Yes, me too. Very powerful.

How did you like the wedding speech?

How did you like the wedding-

That's a great movie you have there.

I just saw it last night.

- Oh, me too.

- Really?

Yeah. It was very powerful.

God, tell me about it.

My eyes were so puffy by the end

that I looked like a boxer.

Cafe latte for Terrence.

How did you like

the wedding speech?

Oh, that was my favorite part.

- Big surprise.

- Totally.

Doug, double cappuccino.

- Well, uh, have a great day.

- You too.

Thanks.

- What do you think?

- I think you look really hot.

I don't like this, either.

Ohh, I just don't feel good.

Whatever. Guys love sad girls.

You're nice and vulnerable.

Where's my boy?

Where is my boy?

Where's my boy?

Where's my boy...

Mmm...

Ohh... ohh...

Hey. How's it going?

Hi. Good. How are you?

Not too bad.

Seen any good movies lately?

Uh, well, I- I saw Shampoo Village

during the weekend.

That's so funny. Me too.

Oh. What did you think?

Oh...

- You?

- Same.

I felt like they were trying too hard.

That's exactly what I said.

And that whole road trip thing

just really didn't work for me.

It didn't work. I know.

Next customer!

- Hello.

- Hi. Yes, can I please have

- a double tall cappuccino, please?

- Okay.

- And your name?

- Doug.

- Amy. Nice to meet you.

- Nice to meet you, Amy.

So, what kind of music

are you into?

Oh, uh, all kinds.

Basically whatever's on the radio,

whatever's popular.

Yeah.

- You?

- Same.

- Yeah?

- Yeah. A bit of everything. Totally.

There's this band that

I just discovered a few weeks ago,

they're really good.

They're kind of obscure.

They're called Skinny.

- Shut up!

- What?

- I love them!

- You do?

Yeah! I have every one of their CDs.

- Huh. Really. Me too.

- That's so funny!

Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I bought all mine

on the same day.

Holy sh*t!

Yeah, when I find a band

and they've got a lot of CDs

but I'm just finding out about 'em,

I just go and buy all the CDs

in one fell swoop, 'cause-

Doug, double cappuccino.

- That's you.

- Yeah.

- Uh-huh.

- Well, um, it was nice talking to you.

Yeah. I guess I'll see you around,

huh?

Yes. I can't wait to hear about

your taste in books.

Yeah.

- Bye.

- Take care.

So I met a guy

in the coffee shop today.

- Was he cute?

- I don't know. He's okay, I guess.

It's not like that. We just

had a lot in common,

like movies and music-

the exact same taste.

- That's awesome.

- And he loves that band Skinny.

Oh, my God!

Nobody knows about them.

- Yeah.

- So, do you like him?

I hardly know him, Jen.

Seriously, I mean, I've talked to him

for like five minutes, total.

Amy, swear to God. If you don't

give this a chance

I'm gonna kick your ass.

Oh, sh*t.

- Hello?

- What up, girl?

- What?

- I asked you first.

- Who is this?

- Ouch. That hurts.

- Matt?

- How's it goin', dude?

Who are you calling "dude"?

So listen, unless you got a policy

against dating coworkers,

what do you say we go out

tomorrow night?

You know, a little dinner, movie,

candlelight...

Well, I gotta say it's kinda short notice,

you know?

Man, you're gonna make me squirm,

aren't ya?

Well, that's cool.

I'll just go stick my head in the oven.

Well, I suppose I can

juggle a few things.

No pressure.

So, what time does this

night of magic begin?

Let's see... pick you up at eight?

Sure.

Hey.

What's up, dude?

So I'm a dude now, huh?

- No, I was just-

- What's up, dude? Ha ha!

- It's just an expression.

- I know. I'm sorry.

I'm just kidding. How's it going?

Good. Good.

Thank God it's Friday, huh?

Yeah, thank God.

What are you doing this weekend?

Well, tonight I thought we'd catch

our favorite band at Red Bar.

- What?

- Yeah, Skinny.

I just happen to have

an extra ticket to their show,

so, uh... you wanna come?

- Are you serious?

- Yes.

Yes, I was gonna go with my friend,

but he's sick,

and I know what a big fan you are,

so I thought you might like to go...

with me.

Oh, my God, Doug,

that's so sweet of you.

The show starts at ten,

so maybe we can grab some dinner first

or some drinks, or...

What?

I'm sorry, Doug, I can't go.

I made plans and there's

just no way I can break them.

Not even for Skinny?

It sucks, I know.

Well, they're only playing in town

for one night, so it-

It's a family thing.

They don't live here, and if I cancel,

they'd just kill me, you know?

I'm sorry.

It's okay.

- Any other night would be great.

- Yeah. Another night.

I know it's short notice,

I just thought, uh...

Well, I know someone else who would-

who would love to go, so...

don't worry about it.

- Really?

- Yeah. It's...

- You mean it?

- Yes. It's no big deal.

Don't- look, I- I better get goin'.

I have a meeting across town.

Okay. I'm sorry. I won't keep you.

No, no. It's okay.

Okay.

- Have a great weekend.

- Yeah, you too.

Bye.

Augghh! F***!

F***! F***!

- Hello?

- Hi, Matt.

- Yeah?

- It's Amy.

Hey! You ready to rock?

Oh, God-

Jesus Christ.

I had to do it, Amy.

I'll make it better, I promise.

That's-

That's very nice of you. Thank you.

Thank you very much.

No, no, I- I-

I can't ask you to do that.

No. Thank you. But-

Hey, stranger.

Hi, Amy. How are you?

Great. You?

- Well, I'm a bit nervous, actually.
