-I ALWAYS IMAGINED

THERE'D BE A TIME IN MY LIFE

WHEN EVERYTHING WOULD LINE UP

AND THE UNIVERSE WOULD

REVEAL ITS PLAN TO ME.

WHAT WAS ONCE CONFUSING

AND OVERWHELMING

WOULD REASSEMBLE INTO SOMETHING

SO CLEAR AND SO BRIGHT,

THERE WAS NO WAY I WOULDN'T KNOW

WHAT TO DO.

AND I GUESS YOU COULD SAY

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED.

BUT JUST LIKE THE STARS,

THE BRIGHTEST ONES

ARE THE MOST FLEETING

AND COLLAPSE INTO THE BIGGEST,

DEEPEST BLACK HOLES.

[ DOOR OPENS, CLOSES ]

- YOU JUST LET HIM

YOU JUST LET HIM

JUST A BOY:

-[ GROANING ]

- HE'S JUST A BOY

HE'S JUST SOME BOY

HE'S ONLY SOME BOY

UH, NO, NO. UGH!

-IT IS VERY GOOD.

-[ LAUGHS ]

-I LIKE IT. I DO.

OH.

HE'S ARISEN.

UH...HEY, BRO.

HOW YOU DOING?

NO?

I'M RAY. THIS IS LITA.

WE LIVE HERE NOW.

YOUR GIRL SAID TO LET YOU SLEEP,

BUT, UH, IT IS TIME TO RALLY.

YOU KNOW, YOU'RE NOT EXACTLY

ON THE LEASE.

-SHE SAID WE COULD

KEEP THE COUCH.

HOPE THAT'S COOL.

-IT'S A VERY, VERY SNAZZY PLACE.

UM, DOES THE REFRIGERATOR

ALWAYS HAVE THAT MUSK TO IT?

-[ CHUCKLES ]

WAIT. WHAT'S HE DOING?

IS HE GONNA HURL?

DON'T FORGET YOUR BAG!

-[ BREATHING HEAVILY ]

[ INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS ]

[ KNOCK AT DOOR ]

[ BREATHING HEAVILY ]

[ SIGHS ]

HAVE YOU EVER DONE SOMETHING

SO HORRIFYINGLY EMBARRASSING

THAT YOU ACTUALLY BLOCK IT OUT?

-UM --

-YEAH.

I BLACK OUT ALL THE TIME, BRO.

NO SWEAT.

-BUT DON'T WORRY.

IT WASN'T TOO NOTICEABLE.

YOU ACTUALLY STARTED

TO BLEND INTO THE WALL.

-[ SIGHS ] THAT IS SO LAME.

-DON'T WORRY, YOU KNOW?

WE'VE ALL GOTTEN DUMPED.

GOOD LUCK. [ CHUCKLES ]

I MEAN --

-IT WAS NICE MEETING YOU

OFFICIALLY.

-YOU, TOO.

THANK YOU FOR THE STUFF.

-YEAH, I KNOW.

IF YOU NEED ANYTHING,

YOU JUST, UH, LET US KNOW.

[ DANCE MUSIC PLAYS ]

LISTEN, LIFE IS GREAT,

LOVE IS GREAT,

AND YOU WILL FIND IT AGAIN.

IT'S GONNA FIND YOU, YOU KNOW,

BECAUSE THAT'S

WHAT'S GONNA DEFINE YOU.

IT'S WHAT DEFINES A GENERATION.

I DIDN'T BELIEVE IN LOVE,

YOU KNOW?

AND THEN I I MET THIS --

MM -- YOU KNOW?

AND THEN LIKE -- BAM!

-I-- WELL, I THINK

WHAT HE'S TRYING TO SAY

IS YOU'LL --

YOU'LL GET THROUGH IT.

YOU WILL.

-YEAH.

AND YOU STAY WITH US

LONG AS YOU NEED

TO GET ROLLING AGAIN.

YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

-THANKS.

I MEAN, YOU GUYS ARE REALLY --

-Shh! Shh! Shh! Shh! Shh!

MI CASO SU CASO, ALL RIGHT?

WE KNOW SOME HOT MAMAS.

WE'RE GONNA GET THEM OVER.

-OH, MY GOD.

-I MEAN, I KNOW THERE ARE

A LOT OF GIRLS OUT THERE.

I'M -- I'M NOT WORRIED

ABOUT THAT.

IT'S JUST THAT...

CHARLOTTE IS LIKE...

[ SIGHS ]

DO YOU GUYS:

BELIEVE IN SOUL MATES?

CHARLOTTE...

CHARLOTTE IS LIKE...

THE MISSING PIECE.

WHEN SHE SHOWED UP, I FELT LIKE

I KNEW WHERE I WAS

SUPPOSED TO GO --

TOWARD HER.

HER FACE, HER HAIR --

IT WAS MAGIC.

SHE MADE ME FEEL...RIGHT.

-GOOD AFTERNOON.

I'M DR. LAMBERT, AND THIS IS

INTRODUCTION TO ASTRONOMY.

I AM AWARE MOST OF YOU

ARE LIBERAL-ARTS MAJORS.

I GET IT.

IT WAS MY CLASS OR DR. YANG'S

INTRO TO GEOLOGY.

[ SNORES ]

[ LAUGHTER ]

I COMMEND YOUR CHOICE.

WHAT YOU LEARN IN MY CLASS

MAY HAVE NO DIRECT RELEVANCE

TO YOUR FUTURE CAREERS

IN MARKETING OR POLITICS

OR ART HISTORY,

BUT I WILL QUOTE COPERNICUS.

HE'S A FAMOUS ASTRONOMER,

BY THE WAY.

"IF ANYTHING CAN BIND

THE HEAVENLY MIND

"OF THIS DREARY EXILE

TO OUR WEARY WORLD

"AND CAN RECONCILE US

WITH OUR FATE:

"SO THAT ONE CAN ENJOY LIVING,

"THEN IT IS VERILY THE ENJOYMEN OF THE MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES

AND ASTRONOMY."

SO DO YOURSELF A FAVOR

AND PAY ATTENTION.

[ LAUGHTER ]

-CHARLOTTE CATES.

-WHO?

-CHARLOTTE.

-SUPERNOVAE HAVE EXPENDED

LESS ENERGY:

THAN YOU ON THIS EXAM.

BUT THE QUESTION IS
