- [music begins]

- [clapping, whistling]

I have nothing to ask of you.

I'm not the wheel.

I want...

emotion.

The valley.

The architect.

I can't feel the ocean.

Millions of people

Millions of people try

To see

The uncanny valley

I'm sorry

I have nothing

to show to you

My heart

My wind

My ocean

It's my agent. Hello?

I'm going to LA!

They said they watched my tape.

They loved my performance,

my song,

and they want me in LA

on Monday.

You have to come with me.

This is like our moment,

you know?

Millions of people

BECKS:
I'm not an LA person.

Just keep saying that,

and you'll fit right in.

BECKS:
What am I gonna do

for two weeks without you?

- I love you.

- Bye, babe.

See you there!

The uncanny valley

BECKS:
Hi, honey.

I broke the lease.

We are officially not getting

our security deposit back.

The landlord was a dick.

But oh, well.

Um, I'm hitting the road.

I can't wait to see you.

I miss you.

My heart

My wind, my ocean

LUCY:
Hey, babe. The new

apartment is ridiculous.

You can't overthrow

I can see the beach

from our window.

- Love you.

- Que sera, sera

Millions of people

Millions of people try

To see

The uncanny valley

LUCY:
Hold on.

Hey.

Hi. Oh, my God.

I thought you were

coming tomorrow.

Well, I'm here.

Surprise.

Is that the weed guy?

Oh, you're not the weed guy.

No, I'm not the weed guy.

I'm the girlfriend guy.

I'm the drove-across-the-fucking

country-to-get-here guy.

Yeah

Ooh

[arguing]

I just want you

in my entire life.

- Don't fucking touch me.

- No, okay, I didn't mean to.

I'm outta here.

Oh, my God.

WOMAN ON RADIO:

Financial assistance,

including the regions of the

only assured IBF program, ARCH.

You do not need a referral

to be seen regarding your...

WOMAN:
Entertainment twin.

Earlier this morning

we talked a lot about...

MAN:
So do I, but I've been

rejected so many times.

WOMAN:
She fell in love with

her first husband on set...

[car door closes]

I just... I quit my job,

and I sold all my stuff,

and I drove all the way

across the country

just because she wanted to be

on a stupid singing competition.

Well, I never trusted her.

Too much eyeliner means she's

hiding something, obviously,

and all that money

from her parents...

Mom, you didn't like her

because she was a "her."

ANN:
Excuse me very much.

I'll have you know that I went

to the Gay Festival this year.

- Gay Pride.

- Gay Pride Festival,

and I wore a T-shirt

with a rainbow,

and I danced with

a lovely man in four-inch heels.

Hey, listen, I don't care

if you want to date

a person who's a man

or a woman

or a woman who wants

to be a pans...

pan-gen-pansexual...

Okay, Mom, I get it.

Don't hurt yourself.

I'm going to go crash.

Hey, hey, come here.

My baby girl, wait, wait, wait.

You are bright and talented

and smart and beautiful,

and you deserve to have

a loving and supportive woman.

Thank you, Mom.

[guitar]

["Fur Elise"]

[TV playing game show]

Where have you been?

Walking with my women's group.

You should join us sometime.

I think you and I have different

definitions of "women's group."

Very funny.

Hello.

Okay, that's it.

Mom, it's

the showcase showdown.

Honey, you have been sitting

on this couch for two weeks.

I've done your laundry,

I've made your food,

and if I hear that

"Two Hands" song...

- "Both Hands."

- "Both Hands" one more time,

- I'm gonna jump off a bridge.

- Mom!

I'm not saying

you have to pay rent.

Just get out of the house

and do something with yourself.

And no more junk TV.

[sighs]
