There was a girl.

A beautiful girl

surrounded by people.

Yet utterly alone.

Her brother, Chris,

died sophomore year.

She spent all of her time

secluded with her family,

or in the comfort of books.

I watched her for

all of high school,

waiting for that perfect

moment to talk to her,

but that moment never came.

I watched as people

gradually forgot about her.

And she seemed content

to disappear.

But not to me.

And although she didn't know it,

I saw the possibility of us.

Jade Butterfield. Mmm.

Four years, and you

never talked to her.

Well, in my defense, no one did.

There is a reason for that.

She's an ice queen.

Girl can't be real.

You don't think she's real?

"You don't think..."

Girl looks like that, has that much

dough, can't be real, all right?

I know these things.

Ah, it's stupid, I know.

No, it's not.

Come on. Dad wants a photo

of the happy family.

Oh, whose family are we

taking a picture of?

Come on.

Jade, come take a picture.

- Me?

- Yeah, you.


Thank you so much.

Will you take two?

Just to be safe.


- There.

- Thank you.

- Congrats, honey.

- Thanks.

That one's going online.


I barely know those girls.

I didn't expect to

be in the picture.

Take a seat. Come on.

Mom and Dad's happy

family photo can wait.

Promise me you won't do in

college what you did here.

Chris was an amazing brother,

and we all miss him,

but you can't stop living.

He'd want us to live

more, not less.

How's anyone ever gonna know how

ridiculous and funny you are

if all you ever do is hang

out with Mom and Dad?

- I don't just hang out with Mom and Dad.

- Oh, really?

How many kids signed this?

And, uh, you can't

include teachers.


Thanks, Dad.

You're welcome, son.

I'm proud of you.

Thank you. It means a lot.

Maybe you should buy

a blowtorch, huh?

- To melt the ice off your girl.

- Mace...

- Your son's got a crush.

- No, I don't.

- Does he?

- No, I don't.

- Is she here?

- Yeah.

Which one is it?

- Jade Butterfield. Mmm-hmm.

- That blonde over there?

- Don't you dare. No.

- Hey, Jade!

Hey, Jade!


Jade, I want you to meet my son!

- Come on! Come on!

- The greatest kid here!

Hey, you guys. Come on, man!

Whoo-hoo. My son, the

high school graduate!

Oh, wow. Mr. Schwartz,

thank you. This is too much.

Mrs. Schwartz. You guys take

care now, all right? Okay.



Dude, you going to

Jenny's Saturday night?

Really? Again?

- Come on.

- Don't do this.

Do you have any idea how your

constant break-ups affect my life?

I'm so sorry.

The energy, man, it gets all

awkward and shit, all right?

Just get back together

with her so I can

go back to the life

I'm accustomed to.

Can you act like a

respectable human being?

You're the first

face the guests see.

And yet they keep coming back.

Welcome to the Inn.

How are you doing?

Can you just, uh,

give me a nice spot?

Absolutely. Will do, sir.

Take care.

You're Jade Butterfield.

We go to school... I mean,

we went to school together.

David, right?


Hey, Jade.

I should go.


Would you sign this?


Jade Butterfield

Come back to me

I'm David and I love you

My wife will have a mixed salad

to start and your pasta special.

My daughter's gonna have the

steak, medium, and soup to start.


- Yeah.

- And for you?

I think I can handle this myself.

I'm gonna go for the burger and

fries. Medium rare, please.

And a Crown and Coke. Better

make it a double, actually.

You're here from ASU

for two short months.

Let's just try and

keep it pleasant.

That's why I got the double, Dad.
