Down to You

Sophomore Al Connelly meets the girl of his dreams, freshman Imogen, and true love abounds. The two engage on a whirlwind courtship--they pick a song, eat a cake together, even make love. But Imogen's fear of lost youth causes her to push away from Al, and they go their separate ways.

First love.

We've all been through it.

It can really take a hold of you.

Make you do some pretty crazy things.

They remind me of my first love.


Imogen would never wear

that much jewelry.

And I wouldn't be caught dead

in shoes like that.

-Your coffee. I'm sorry about the wait.


I remember when I first met her.

It was in this...

cool dive we used

to hang out at.

I guess we thought it was cool

because they didn't check IDs, but...


she sure looked great

that night.

There's no way! No way!

No way!

There's no way!

No way.

Get outta here!

-Totally true.

-You're such a liar.

-They'd never had anyone so talented.

-They said that? For real?

-They want to put me under contract.

-You did it with a chick...

somebody filmed. I can go to the store

and rent it. You got paid US$2,5OO?

-Right, but they will tax that.

-This is the most uncanny thing...

...I've ever heard of.

-She's supposed to stop by later.


-My co-star.

Hold on! You're telling me, the one

that you hot-housed in the movie... coming here tonight?

-Are you two going out now?

She's cool, but I'm not into dating

people at the office.

Wait. Just hold it. Monk, c'mon,

you gotta break me into this business.

Look at me and then look at you.

I'm far better looking.

No doubt in my mind

that you are, my friend.

But I'm afraid

you're way too small.

Get outta here.

I got it. And I can outlast anyone

in this goddamn town!

-Then take a challenge.

-Let's go!

New freshman. Name's Lana.

She's always grabby.

Loves fooling around.

Go get lit with her...

and take her back to the dorm. I'll be

in Al's bunk, so she won't see me.

If you don't show, you have to buy me

an all-you-can-eat sushi dinner.

-When I win?

-Then I'll get you an audition.

You got yourself a bet.

You ever heard of that

drinking game, "Quarters"?

Where am I going to sleep?

With that freshman.

-"She's Got You".


-It's a better pick than "Crazy".

-Depends on your mood, I guess.

-Do you like Patsy Cline?

-Yeah! Patsy, Billie, Joni.

All the great female singers.

My mom's influence. She spins.

-Get out of here!

-Been a DJ her whole life.

You can't watch me pick, okay?


I had to choose dance stuff because

this place needs friction.

-I'm Imogen.


-My mom picked it out of a name book.


I'm Al.

Alfred Connelly.

-Are you a junior?

-Sophomore. Are you a soph...?

Are you a freshman?

-This is a great pick for adrenaline.

-Have to endorphinize.


Singing, baby.

That guy looks like Jim Morrison,

from The Doors.

His name is Jim Morrison.

You okay?

That's what I get for drinking

in between drinks.


Got to come up for air.

We're going to the Cat

and Mouse tavern. Coming?

-I see you with the twig in the corner.

-The frat boy without a frat.

-Al, this is Lana. Lana, Al.

-Hey you, Aley.

I'm going back to twig boy and then

we're going out. So, later.

She's really cool once you get to

know her. Do you wanna come?

I'd like to, but you should go

rage with the freshmen.

-I have my internship tomorrow.

-Doing what?

My dad has a cooking show,

so I'm learning about TV.

But I kinda would really like

to be a cook myself.

-Is he the chef?

-He's Chef Ray.

Your dad is Chef Ray?

Now Al, I want you to get this.

You cut into a piece of Jarlsberg...

you do not abuse the rind.

You don't say...

well, the rind is an inch big,

so I'm just gonna cut and chuck it.

You cut at the edge,

right here.

You know how much you're gonna

save? Are you seeing this?

You start adding these up,
