Mark:
Oh hey. Listen, if a guy

named Teddy Gish friends you,

ignore it. Alright? Do not

accept.

Aaron:
Uh-oh.

Mark:
You already did.

Lea:
Uh huh. You know he's in

town. Right?

Mark:
What? Aaron: Why?

Lea:
Yeah. He's dating this

Dartmouth grad student.

Lea:
It's on his profile.

Aaron:
No. I never go on there.

Gavin:
Why don't you want to allow this

guy to play in your virtual sandbox?

Aaron:
Mark never really liked

Teddy.

Mark:
Nobody did.

Lea:
Hey.

Aaron:
Remember that time he hid

cards up his sleeve for poker?

Mark:
Yeah. And he was always borrowing

money and never paying it back.

Aaron:
Drinking your last beer.

Mark:
Bogarting your joint.

Aaron:
Hitting on your

girlfriend behind your back.

Gavin:
Ah. There it is.

Lea:
Oh Whose? Yours? Lisa? Mm

hmm.

Aaron:
No.

Lea:
What?

Gavin:
What yours?

Mark:
It was college. I was

experimenting.

Gavin:
What is it with you Americans? Nobody

knows how to refill a goddamn wine glass.

Gavin:
Aaron. Would you like

some more wine?

Aaron:
Why yes. Gavin. Thank

you.

Mark:
Mister Manners.

Gavin:
Lea?

Lea:
Yes please.

Lea:
Well maybe he's changed.

Gavin:
No. People don't change.

Not after adolescence.

Mark:
The oracle has spoken.

Gavin:
Nobody really knows anybody

anyway. Least of all themselves.

Mark:
My god. Does anyone have

a pen?

Gavin:
You only know what you want

to believe you know about me, my love.

Lea:
I don't know. I think I've changed

a lot since college. So have you guys.

Mark:
Believe me. This is not a guy

that we want back in our lives, okay?

Aaron:
Yeah let's just keep it

online.

Mark:
No. Not even online.

Aaron:
Okay.

Gavin:
So sorry. The loo is off

limits for the next 48 hours...

to anyone without a Hazmat suit.

Mark:
That's nice. Dear.

Lea:
So what's his twin like? [Sound]:

AARON ARGUES ON PHONE OFFSCREEN

Mark:
Whose?

Lea:
Teddy's.

Mark:
He doesn't have a twin.

Lea:
He's on his friend list.

Mark:
What? What's his name?

Lea:
Tom?

Mark:
Yeah that's his brother.

But not twin.

Lea:
They have the same

birthday.

Gavin:
Maybe different years.

Lea:
Did you ever meet him?

Mark:
No. Do you know what the

odds of that are?

Gavin:
Three hundred sixty five

to two?

Mark:
No.

Aaron:
(offscreen) Well there'sa big

difference between "it just doesn't feel right"

Aaron:
And an actual problem

with the tracking.

Mark:
Look, we'd definitely

know if Teddy Gish had a twin.

Gavin:
Maybe he doesn't want

you to know.

Aaron:
Oh, God! F*ck!

Aaron:
Get the broom! Get the

broom!

Mark:
Here. [Lea screams]

Gavin:
Get him to fly over here. Get him

to fly over here. [Sound]: WINGS FLUTTERING

Lea:
Aaron! Don't hit it!

Aaron...

Gavin:
It's still alive.

Mark:
So put it out the window,

just... okay. Okay, okay...

Mark:
O-kay.

Lea:
Aaron.

Lea:
You could have chased it

outside.

Aaron:
It would've come back in.

Lea:
Well, they're good. They

eat bugs.

Aaron:
And carry rabies.

Aaron:
What?

Lea:
I thought I saw something.

Lea:
What?

Lea:
Oh, sorry. It's nothing.

Aaron:
Or whatever it was, it's

gone.

Aaron:
Or is it?

Lea:
Aaron

Aaron:
What was that?

Lea:
Oh god! Stop it.

Aaron:
Sorry.

Aaron:
Do you have to work

tonight?

Lea:
Ugh, yes.

Aaron:
How's it going?

Lea:
Well, it's not The Misfit.

Aaron:
Really, it's the

Grandmother?

Lea:
Nope.

Aaron:
Who?
