Hey, you got a safety pin?

Why would I have

a safety pin?

Oh, good God.

This is easy as hell.

Ready? One, two, three.

It's gone, ladies.

Where'd it go?

- That was so cool.

- Yeah, I know.

Hey, listen. I'm having

a party this weekend.

- Yeah?

- Yeah. You should come.

Hey, I need a pin.

Somebody have a pin?

Please?

What am I supposed

to do with this?

It's all I got.

People, people, people!

It's show time!

- Relax, Ameet.

- It happens to the best of us.

It didn't happen to you,

so shut up.

Oh, hey, Ameet, look.

I found a safety pin.

- You want it?

- It's not that funny, big boy

Don't count on me

for tomorrow.

Bobby's big day, huh?

I think it's pathetic.

I'd lose my pants any day

not to have to go through that.

Ruby Chandra, huh?

Yeah, why?

Poor you.

What's that supposed to mean?

You never exactly met her,

have you?

No. That's kind of the point.

What?

What's wrong with her?

What's wrong with her?

She's fine, man.

I don't know.

In a unique kind of way.

Go see what she looks like.

No

Come on, Ameet,

help a brother out.

No

Please?

Okay.

- Hi, Auntie.

- Hi, Ameet. How are you?

Hi, Uncle.

How are you?

Hi.

This is Ruby's mother.

This is Saima.

Isn't she beautiful?

Well?

Bobby? It's time.

Hi.

Hi.

Whew.

Hey.

Oh, hell no!

No!

Wait, wait, wait, wait

No

Sorry.

Whoa, whoa!

What the hell are you doing?

Did you see that thing?

She's a wildebeest!

Do you hear that shit? I can't

live with that the rest of my life.

- You got to go back and apologize.

- What?

I'm not saying you should marry her,

but you can't leave her like this.

Watch me.

I'm sorry.

I'll talk with him.

What the hell

is going on?

I got this under control.

You can just turn around.

I don't think so.

That's my best friend

down there crying like a baby.

- Wildebeest!

- Would you please leave?

Good idea.

I'm supposed to be

Sleeping Beauty!

- Hey, roll me out of here.

- No.

- Please? Please?

- No. No.

- Please?

- Shut up.

- Can you believe it?

- No.

Cheers

You idiot!

Saima, I'm sorry.

I didn't mean to...

Ameet, this is

the ladies' room.

Is there anything

I can do to help?

Yeah. Get out.

Are you sure there's

nothing I can do?

Get out!

- What's the matter with you?

- Mom.

- It's just a spilled drink.

- Did Ameet do this?

It was an accident.

On behalf of my son, please accept

my apologies.

- That's all right.

- That boy.

I don't know how he can survive

without a woman in his life.

What?

Okay, okay.

Yeah, hi.

Okay, okay.

Mommy!

Aah! Ow!

- Hurts?

- Yes!

So we got married.

I didn't get a honey

moon, of course.

I got a nurse.

Hi, honey.

Hi, honey!

- Yeah, hi.

- Hold this.

Oh!

All right.

Oh.

- Thank you.

- Poor baby.

Little chips for my honey.

You want some more of this?

Thank you.

My baby.

I can't believe Bobby

got trapped like that.

- See ya.

- Where are you going?

Out.

Don't be late.

- Where are you going?

- Out.

You should concentrate on

your studies.

It's Friday night.

After so much hard work.

You are in medical.

Why you want to ruin

that opportunity?

Papa, it's just one night.

Hey, you work now.

Tomorrow we are taking

dinner with some friends.

You also come.

It'll be your layer time.

You enjoy then

But, Papa, what about Dave?

Is he also taking

dinner tomorrow?

God bless you, God.

o]

[radi

Oh, God.

Damn!

Why are you

always in heat?

Because I know

what I want, girl.

Look at that ass.

What's up, ladies?

- Hey!

- Aah!

Hey, Saima.

What's with her?

What happened to you?

Hurricane Ameet.

Huh?

Where is everybody?
