Reid, Ben, and Darrin and I,

we've been friends for a while now.

They were just normal guys,

you know, like, everyday,

the kind of guys, you know,

you would just

go watch a football game with

or, you know, have a beer.

They're not crazy people.

They're just regular guys.

Um, and it's not like

them to just take off.

Reid was the best brother

anyone could have.

He always took care of me.

This is the old Reid over here.

He was really great at sports and

really liked to play the guitar.

And then this is

the new crazy Reid.

All this crazy reading

material about UFOs,

weird DVDs and maps.

Reid stopped

returning my phone calls.

And then I got really scared

when he got fired.

As I said, he was

a great, great, uh,

asset to the company.

But about three months

before he disappeared,

he had a real change

in attitude.

He came to work late.

He spent a lot of time on the Internet.

Stuff that we found

in his desk after he left,

a bunch of color pictures

of UFOs.

My brother wouldn't

just disappear.

Three people aren't just

gonna disappear.

Something is going on.

And the fact that nobody

knows anything,

nobody will talk to us...

Everybody's avoiding us.

For what?

Somebody knows something,

and they're not telling us.

I would think that a person

who tried to sneak into

Area 51 and get video,

even a person who succeeded

in getting that video,

would be in serious trouble.

The camera's the girl?

The camera is the girl.

Like, practice with it.

Like, what do you say to these girls?

Hello. My name is Reid.

What's yours?

And then we'd start

a conversation

about, you know,

what the other one does...


This is like a brand new...

It's like a...

I might try this tonight,

I don't know.

This is a new thing.

It's revolutionary.

We just need Ben

not to screw it up.

Oh, I will not screw it up.

You are a massive cock block.

- I am not a massive cock block.

- Yes, you are.

I am a good friend

that just tries to

encourage his roommate...

For the record, I will never block

another man's cock, all right?

Says the man in

the sherbet cardigan.

Okay, first of all,

this is not sherbet.

This is a salmon-colored


You looked up the def...

- Yeah.

- Great, let's hear it.

It's a picture of

your face, man.

Reid, I don't see

any houses up here.

Oh, here we go. Okay.

Whoa, whoa, whoa!

Rub my stomach?

What happened to, "Hello, Reid"?

- First, bar. Then beer pong.

- Done.

Shots, shots, and shots

and then beer pong.

See you tomorrow.

Take one.

Oh, Jesus.

Thank you. Thank you.

Take one. Pass it down.

Take one. Pass it down.


All right, cool,

just don't drop it.

All right. My babies.

If we win, you have to jump

in the pool naked.

You know I like being naked.

I'm not worried about that.

I was talking to Danielle,

but if you...

I'll make that

bet for both of us.

You have to sing karaoke.

You have to rap.


Danielle and I are

the ultimate partners.

We're gonna be here all night.

Son of a b*tch!

Damn it.

Chug-a-lug, Reid.

You know what this means?

You know what this means?

It's karaoke time.

Yeah, buddy.

Just warming you up.

My friend, Darrin.

Oh, sh*t! Perfect!

- Hey, how are you?

- What's your name?

Monet. Monet?

Of course it is.

- Self-proclaimed...

- Party whore.


What do you do?

How much?

I'll give you

a slice of pepperoni.

- Darrin.

- What?

Look at Reid, man.

Really? We're doing this?

You like my B? This is my B.

Oh, you wanna do this?

All right.


And she's gone. Okay.

Do it!

Follow me.

- Drop the beat. Give me a beat.
