Oh, my God.

You, like, threw up back here with

your preparation. I swear to God.

That's like a Sarah tornado.

You got your...

your mom's tent, I see.

- Which is a classic. Oldie, but goodie.

- Sarah:

- Of course.

- We got "people," "ok!," "star."

We are going

to an empty island.

Oh, my God!

There's like 10 of them!

- This is horrible news. -

We need entertainment.

- There's nothing else there.

- I'm there.

- Yeah, you're very pretty.

- I have so many stories.

There's only so long I can look at you

and just be like, "you're so pretty."

And then I need to look at trash.

You know what I mean?

- Right.

- I'm f***ing happy, man.

You know, I'm happy.

I'm happy we're here.

I'm happy, too.

I'm excited.

# Steal them back

for me, love #

# oh, yeah

# steal them back

for me, love #

# oh, yeah...

- Oh, my God.

- Oh, my God.

- Woman:
"We got crabs."

- I can't even...

- like, that's crazy...

- I feel like we should go in there

and just tell them that

they need to take that down.

At least they're being up front

and honest about it

- 'cause usually, you know,

- That's true.

Guys don't tell you, and then,

you know what, you end up

- with a pantyful of lice.

- The whole...

That is really,

really disgusting.

# Be careful where you lean #

# and when you're lost

under the blue sky #

# look down

and you'll find me #

# yeah...

- Sarah:
We're here.

- I know.

- It's a long time coming.

- It is crazy.

- How long has it been for you.

- Sarah:
Like eight years.

Eight years, are you serious?

That's weird. Is that...

are you serious?

- Sarah...

- Is that...

- ...why is Abby sitting right there?

- Oh.

Why would you not tell me this?

This is such a bad idea.

Let's look at this

like an opportunity.

- She...

- Come on. It's gonna be good.

- This is, like, unreasonable.

- Come on.

- Hey, abs.

- What are you doing?

- Give me a hug.

- What are you doing? No, no.

- Love me, love me.

- What is this?

You were like, "oh, let's go on

this great weekend. You and me."

- I know.

- "We're gonna go out to the island.

We'll reconnect. It'll be so awesome.

You and me."

- I know. - Yeah, that's kinda...

kinda what you said to me.

- I'm sorry. I know.

- You and me.

- I'm sorry.

- You know what, I'm just, like...

- I took time off to come up here.

- Do you wanna punch me?

I have a really

crazy life right now, okay?

I don't have the time,

energy, interest...

- Give me just a slap in the face.

- In, like, dealing with

- all of this sh*t, okay?

- But it's gonna be so good.

You can say my name, Abby. You're

not gonna f***ing get leprosy.

- Whoa, whoa, whoa. Guys, guys.

- Thanks, Lou. Thank you.

Hello? Guys, this is

gonna be so great.

- We're here.

- Okay, I'm gonna go.

So you guys have a really

great weekend, though.

It was great to see you both,


I'm sorry. I'm with

Abby on this one.

Seriously, like, I hear where you're

coming from and you're sweet,

but it's, like,

it's not a good call, man.

It's like...


Let's just...

We'll do it another time.

I have cancer.


I didn't wanna say anything.

I didn't wanna ruin the trip.

I didn't want it to be about that.

I wanted it to be about us.

- They say four to six months.

- What?!

They say four to six months, but

seriously, I've come to terms with it.

It's okay.

It's okay.

The thing that I want most,

more than anything

in the world,

is to have this final hurrah,

just the three of us together.

Can we do that?

- Yeah, yeah.

- Can we do that?

- Of course.

- Yes, yeah.

Can we do that?

Yes, we can?

- Yes, yes.

- Seriously, can we do that?

'Cause I'm just riddled

with it, you know?

Just... it's everywhere.


- Are you f***ing with me right now?

- ( Laughs )

- I know...

- You don't have f***ing cancer?

No... I do not

have cancer,

- oh, my God.

- But I do have a very good...

- oh, my God. You're such an a**hole.

- Did you just say that you

- have cancer so that we...

- That you guys... you...

- I don't have cancer.

- Are you serious?

- Oh...

- But the thing is...

look it, you guys.

That was bad.

That was a bad,

bad thing to say and do.

That was a horrible thing

to say!

That was a horrible thing

to do, but here's the thing:

We are all dying.

That's the truth.

We have no idea what's gonna happen.

We don't know.

We could be hit by a bus

tomorrow, you know?

- We could... we have no idea what's

gonna happen. - Oh, my God.

And I'll tell you one thing for certain...

there are no buses on that island.

- Okay. - You know, so we can go out

there and be safe from buses,

- which is great.

- I still, like... I can't...

- sh*t is great.

- You're such a...

- i want us back.

- This is so bad.

- Say yes.

- Oh, God.

- You were looking at me like, "yeah,

you're so in." - You're an a**hole.

Say yes, abs.

Is it a yes?

- I'm going, but I'm not happy.

- Yay!

- I love you.

- I hate you.

Yay, let's go camping!

It's gonna be so good, guys.

Fresh air, you know?

New beginnings.

Fresh start.

There she is, guys.

What a beauty.

- Wow.

- First-class travel.

Pass me some stuff.

Do you even know

how to start this motor?

I mean, I think so.


That's got sunglasses.

Oh, sorry.

- ( Motor puttering )

- ( Cheering )

I have got this.


It's a really big knot.
