I've been working

with these sick kids,

kids who've been

diagnosed with cancer.

And chemo when you're

twelve, like, sucks.

But...I mean, chemo

sucks in general,

but twelve sucks It's

when it happens.

When what happens?

Are you girls ready to order?

Oh, I'll get the Cobb

Salad, with the... oh,

no chicken, no bacon, no

cheese and no avocado.

Mm... I'll get the

burger and fries.

but maybe with her

bacon and her cheese,

and do not bring

me a dessert menu.

I already know I

want the cheesecake,

the brownie cheesecake.

I'm so glad you're not on

that stupid diet anymore.

It was making me

a miserable person.

So, I have some news.

What are you doing right now?

Just like your

typical Sunday morning.

It's Monday and it's

like noon in L.A.

Uh, how do you know that?

You don't even

f***in' live here.

Okay. Well... you don't

even know my day right now.

I was having lunch with Becky.

We went to that place,


I haven't started the story yet.

No. Ugh.

I just realized that the

guy I slept with sucks.

Would you stop thinking

about yourself

and your weird little

life for five seconds?

I was having lunch with Becky...

I have some news.

My point is, imagine

chemo on top of twelve.

It really makes you

appreciate what we have.

Yeah, it does.

So, things have been

getting pretty serious

with Dale and I, and I

haven't really told anyone

Can I say something?

Stop. Stop, stop, stop.

I gotta conference in Katie.

Oh, for Chris sakes!

Tell her later.


This story is so

f***ing long already,

I'm not gonna

remember any of it.

So just hold on.

Welcome to Club Monaco.

That's totally cute.

We don't have like anything

that cute in the store.


Well um, hey, why don't

we try folding stuff?



Oh. I gotta take this.

It's work.

You're at work.

Hey, what's up?

I don't know. It's like...

some drama with Becky.

Tell me everything.

I haven't really told

anyone Can I say something?

And I'm only saying this because

you're my friend and

I really care about you.

Do I have something on my face?

Guys like Dale,

born wealthy guys,

they hate going public

And if he doesn't

want to be with you,

it's because he's an a**hole,

not because you're... . Jewish.

I mean, she's our friend.

I love her.

She has a pretty face.

Do you remember in high school,

all the boys used

to call her Pig Face.

Everybody called her

Pig Face in high school.

I mean, behind her back.

We've been friends since we

were little girls, Becky.

I want you to be with someone

who shouts it from the rooftops.

I know.

That's why I can't really

keep it a secret anymore

Dale asked me to marry him.

Oh... - That's insane.

- That's insane.

Okay. Back me up here.

I like, was...

totally gonna be the

one to get married first.

Yeah. He's also like

super good-looking.

I Googled him like

a-a few months ago.

Like, it's alarming.

I wanna date a

guy who has a job.

You know, we're all gonna have

to be in this wedding now.

Silver lining.

We're gonna get to throw

a bachelorette party

We're gonna get to

dress up and be cool.

It's gonna be just like prom.

I don't need to parade

around a bunch of people

that I used to know.

Clyde's gonna be there.

I'll probably go.

I've gotta go to work.

Yeah, sh*t.

I'm fired by now.

I've gotta go read some

books to these cancer kids.

Love you Beeeeees!
