Yes. Uh-huh.

I'm not kidding.

That's where this "class act" brought me.

Yeah, you heard me. Hooters.

This is the first date I've been on

since the divorce...

...and the guy brings me to a Hooters.

Is Tyler asleep?

Oh, yeah! Whoo!

- Not all the way.

- What's he doing?

This T-shin"s on fire!

Why is he singing that?

Must save planet Earth.

No, It's all good.

- It's out.

- What's out'?

Oh, God, I'm coming home.

Intruder alert.

Yeah, maybe that's not actually a bad idea.

You're gonna call me in 10 minutes... that I can tell this dope

I have an emergency.

Can you give me my bath now?

Make it five minutes.

Got you, uh, Buffalo shrimp

with the sauce on the side.

They'll do that for me here.

I didn't know how you took it so...

You realize that you're not

actually looking at my face right now.

Very tight game going on there.

I don't wanna miss it.

You gotta really swing the ax

hard to get those, uh, hits in deep.

- Hi, Jim.

- Hey, Jim.

Hey, Jim.

Cheese sticks in the shape of a heart.

From me, Bunny, Bethany and Britney.

Thank you, Bubbles. That's very nice.

- Have fun.

- See you.

All right.

Hey, I noticed that you made eye contact

with Boobies...

...but I'm not sure it was her eyes

you were looking at.

So you organize closets for a living.


Is it hard to find people who can't organize

their own closets? How does that work?

Well, it's not that they can't

do it for themselves.

It's that they don't have the time

or they don't do it efficiently.

Did you start with organizing

glove compartments...

...and just work your way up from there or...?

Listen, I'm sorry.

I know this is not going well. I, heh...

I haven't been on a date in 20 years.

I haven't been on a date since senior year.

You get married in college?

- Yep.

- Me too.

- Really?

- Yes.

Is this not the weirdest feeling

in the world right now?

Like Weird Al starring in Weird Science.

Yes. I like that. You just came up with that?


Very good.

You know, I think I will have

one of these Buffalo shrimp.

And I'll have it with the sauce.


Oh, my God.


- It's hot.

- Oh, my God. Who makes sauce this hot?

I just...

Did you drink my beer?

No. No, no. I think you did.

Boobies! Buddy! Britney!

- Can you get me some water?

- Here. Have some French onion soup.

You know, I'm curious.

With so many possible reasons...

...which one's the one your wife left you for?


I'm sorry. I...

...naturally just assumed you were divorced.

It's okay.

I naturally assumed

your husband shot himself.

So we're even.

I gotta take this.


Whoa, whoa, whoa. Calm down!

An avalanche in our backyard?

I'll be home right away.

It's an emergency. I'm sorry.

Twenty dollars should cover my half.

He used the emergency excuse on you?

Like he's the one that had to escape.

- Like I'm so horrible.

- Huh.

Well, everybody has a bad blind-date story

and this loser is yours.

Who set you UP?

One of the mothers in Tyler's class.

Every time I see her

she tells me about her "friend Jim."

And, "Oh, I just have to meet Jim."

Well, she's a liar and an idiot.

You should roofie her and shave her head.

Dick? Hi.

- No, I can talk. I'm just at work.

- Great.

Ha, ha. I know. I'm so sore.

I L word you too.

Okay. Talk to you later. Bye.

Did you just use the L word with Dick?

We said it last night.

Jen! That's great! Why didn't you tell me?

Well, you know. You finally went on a date

and it was so awful.

I didn't want to make you feel lonelier

than you probably already feel.

I'm fine, actually. And I'm not lonely.
