(R&B music playing)

Oh oh

- I'm tired of being alone...

- (phone ringing)

When a girl ain't my own

to call "baby"

My baby

- Been looking high and low...

- (answering machine beeps)


Hey, Katalina, it's me.

Just want to make sure

that you're coming tonight.

You're on the VIP list, plus two.

All right, honey.

Call me when you get here.

- Bye.

- (beeps)


(doorbell chimes)

- Armands?

- Red velvet.

I didn't think you were listening to me

when I told you about this.

Of course.

You look amazing.

- Thank you.

- Are you ready?

- We have reservations in 20 minutes.

- Yup.

Where are you taking me?

A surprise.

Tonight tonight

Somehow you see me run here

I've been searching upstairs

And I've been looking

all over this club

We just was

on the dance floor

Getting it on

- She told me she was gonna...

- (phone rings)

You've reached Prime.

Leave a message after the tone.

- (beeps)

- (sighs)

Prime, I see you're still not answering

your phone calls. Um...

look, I'm coming tonight,

so my name better be on the list.

Skylar, Skylar,

stop fussing over me.

Grandma, your dinner

is in the microwave.

All you have to do is warm it.

Please take that.

- I'm old, not disabled.

- Can you take your medicine, please?

- (sighs)

- Thank you.

- Mmm.

- So you have my cellphone number, right?

- Mmm. Mmm. Mmm.

- If you need anything, just call.

- Maybe I shouldn't go.

- Skylar.

- Hmm?

- Go to the party. Have fun.


If you need anything, just call me.

- I'm gonna keep my cellphone on.

- Mm-hmm, mm-hmm.

- I love you.

- I love you too.

Now you have some fun!

You know how you spell "fun"? M-A-N!

But don't bring back no DNA.


So I went back to the bar

To get me another drink

She said, "Boy,

are you coming back?"

I said, "Girl, what you think?"

That's when she said...

I think I'm falling in love

On this dance floor

Tonight tonight

The way you move,

I'm thinking I want more

Tonight tonight

I think I'm falling in love

on this dance floor

Tonight tonight

The way you move,

I'm thinking I want more

- Let's go, y'all

- Tonight tonight.

(crickets chirping)

(soul music playing)

Y'all, look at this sh*t

DJ Class coming hard

with the flow

Rappers are in that 410...

Hey, Prime. It's Skylar.

Just letting you know that I'm here.

But it's probably gonna

take me a while to get in.

- All right. Bye.

- Man:

- Yeah?

- I'm China, Prime's bodyguard.

- Oh, hi.

- He's waiting for you at the table.

Oh, okay. Thank you.

Steal spotlights, baby,

calling me klepto

Brother Classy,

better holla at your boy

Oh my goodness,

oh my God

Oh my goodness, oh my God

Oh my goodness,

oh my God

Oh my God, oh my God

Oh my goodness,

oh my God

Oh my goodness, oh my God...

Now look here, baby girl, I don't care

if you stroll in with Beyonc.

Ain't nobody get

in the VIP unless I say so.

Now you could pass it up,

club with the scrubs if you want,

but if you're trying to kick it

with me afterwards,

you can't come without her and she

damn sure can't come without you.

- Hey, Kalif.

- What, man?

- Come on, dawg, I need you.

- Oh damn.

Think about it. I'll be back.

Yo, man, what's up?

I was just setting up

my 25th hour.

You don't even know

how to tell time, bro.

- What?

- Let's go, boy. Come on.

Pardon my French,

but f*** you, haters...

Girl, I thought

you said we had VIP.

Did you not see your name on the list?

They ran out of wristbands,

so Lonzo has to come down

and bring 'em to us.

- Where the hell's he at?

- Trust me, he has five minutes

- or I'm onto the next one.
