- Hi, how are you?

Hi, how are you?

Welcome, welcome to Dog shop.

Hello, how are you?



- What?

- I still don't understand why ignorance

is being pummeled in the face

by that gnarly little angel.

- You think ignorance is good?

- I think it's a fact.

I think everyone's ignorant.

- This painting's about

triumphing over ignorance,

it's about being better than that.

The angel is just trying to wake her up.

The wake up call.

Unfortunately, it's

probably gonna take like,

a million f***ing years but, you know,

some people need that.

- I disagree with you,

I'm gonna stop shitting

on our childhood memory because--

- [Man] No but what do

you think you should do?

- I don't think this is productive,

I don't wanna talk about it.

- [Man] What do you think

ignorance should do?

You think she should stay

crying and miserable?

- Ignorance should just get out

of this painting I guess 'cause--

- Get out of this painting,

yeah that's helpful.

If she got a f***ing

trumpet and grew some wings,

she could f***ing go up there.

- I'm gonna go look over

the abstract art,

because we never visit

that side of the museum,

I'll meet you in 10 okay?

- You won't feel anything.

(dog barking in the distance)



- Jasmine.

(soft electronic music)


- The store looks like sh*t.

- I just need a change.

- A makeover's a good place to start,

have you thought about blonde?

- Blonde?

- Virgin?

- My hair?

Yeah, my hair is virgin.

- Okay, I can see it now.

Today you and I are going all the way

it's gonna be very exciting, platinum.

(soft electronic music)

(alarm beeping)


- Oh hey, excuse me

miss, I, are you a model?

Well you should be, because

you have a great look.


- Scouted?

- [Irene] Yeah I was

scouted, by a modeling agent.

- For what?

- [Irene] Modeling.

- That's so ridiculous, I hope

you know what you're doing.

I just don't want you to get exploited.

Especially if you don't look very good.

Well you look like someone

who could be exploited.

Keeping it real.

- [Irene] Why?

- What?

- [Irene] Why do I look like someone

who could get exploited?

- 'cause you went out and

got yourself a silly haircut.

- [Irene] Seriously?

- And you think that just

because someone gives you

their business card, you know,

you're the next Tyra Banks or something.

- At least I'll make more money.

(electronic music)

(soft electronic music)

- New hair?

- Yeah, do you like it?

- I liked it better brown.

Blonde washes you out.

Hot date?

- Wish me luck.

- Good luck.

- Hmm, hi there.

- Hi.

- Hi, I'm Jared.

- I'm Irene.

- You caught me right

in the middle of lunch,

mid danish here, so officially

I'm not even here right now.


But you're here, so we can do this.

How tall are you?

- 5'11.

- Really?

- Yeah.

- Okay, what are your measurements?

- 34, 24, 34.

- Hmm, Eyeballing you, I'd

probably add a few numbers

to every number you just

said to me, but that okay.

Hmm, how old are you?

- I'm 23, I just turned 23.

- Hmm, honey, no, if

we're gonna work together,

we're gonna need to

start from a foundation

of honesty, I'm having

a hard time believing

you're 23 years old.

- I'm really 23 years old.

- Okay, I'm gonna choose to believe you,

may I?

The hair.

Oh, so coarse.

It's like horse hair.

Like a little pony, little philly.

That's a joke you can laugh.

(laughing awkwardly)


Hum, alright why don't

you grab your stuff,

come back to my office,

we'll talk this over.
