Here you go. Thank you.

I'll be right back with your order.

Good morning, Bill.

Let me guess. Pancakes, side of bacon.

Who's dying? Come on, pick it up.

Phil, Big Papa, please? I need 15.

I love it when you call me Big Papa.

Hey, you're up early today.

Okay, you're good to go.

Is this yours?

Does that line ever work?

What's the problem here?

It's hot!

Here you go.


Why not? My grandfather was a lawyer.

Plus, I have a logical mind.

And you're only, like, what?

$299,000 short of what you need for law school?

- Piece of cake.

- Piece of pie.

Piece of ass. So what would you do?

- I don't know.

- Liar.

You know, I was thinking

I could go back to school full-time.

And quit here? I won't allow it, Slim.

- Careful, it's hot.

- Sorry, sir.

- Ever try the Roc?

- What?

It's the deodorant thing.

It's like salts or something.

You rub it on your pits.

It looks like some kind of hippie crystal.

- Are you saying I sweat?

- No, you just...

- Do I smell?

- No. God...

- Ladies?

- Okay. Your turn.

I'm sweating too much.

You waiting for somebody?

- Something to drink?

- Just water, thanks.

I'll give you a minute to look at the menu.

That's okay. I was in here yesterday, Slim.

- What's your real name?

- No.

I like it. Don't you think

it's kind of negative, though?

No, I don't tell my name.


Give me the soup, turkey burger,

coleslaw, couple of extra slices of tomato.

I write books. Do you read books?

What are you reading now?

You know Finnegans Wake by James Joyce?

My friend told me it's the hardest book

in the English language.

I mean, not the hardest,

but the hardest one that you can actually read.

I thought to myself, if I can get through it,

I could probably read the rest.

- How long have you been reading it?

- Six years.

I'll be back with your soup.

- He likes you.

- He's a dick.

- He was in here yesterday, you know?

- I know.

Now he's back today, he brought a rose,

he pulls you into conversation.

Okay, so he likes me.

- So, do you like him?

- I don't know him.

What's that got to do with anything?

He's a major piece of cake, piece of pie.

Trust me, okay? He's carrot cake.

And when a guy like that,

who's actually cuter than you, likes you...

He's cuter than me?

Face it, no one will ever go for you

because of your looks.

That sucks, because my personality bites.

Cup of soup.

You don't really write books, do you?


I haven't really been reading

Finnegans Wake either.

I'm going into law...


Who's the rose for?

Enjoy your grub.



How much did you settle on?

Excuse me?

The bet. How much is it?

You and your friend, yesterday, was it $200?

Was it $500? What was it?


He bet his friend...

...that he could get into your pants

by noon tomorrow.

Is this your business?

Are you the morals police?

Take it easy, man. I was just having some fun.

What was it? $200 or $500?

I want to know what I'm worth.

The bet was for $200.

But now that I know you...

...way too high.

Don't come back here again...


I'm sorry to get in your business.

No. Thanks.

I can't believe you actually said something.

I'd have felt bad about it...

...if I'd have kept quiet.

Good luck.

Please tell me, Phil, as Mitch was rather vague...

...is her father dead, too?

Well, he is to her.

He left when she was maybe two or three.

- Then I'm happy to pay for the wedding.

- Yes, we're very happy.

You sure you love me?

Forever and ever?

You're safe with me, Slim.

You're safe, and it's okay to be happy.

We deserve it.

- Wait, so this was during or after college?

- During.

What's wrong with you?

No, I mean, why did you and Slim break up?

I'm terrible in bed.

Plus, she had to drop out,

some money problems...

...and so we kind of evolved into being friends.

What do you think?

Can I take you home right now?

If you've got a sense of humor.

My kids are out for tonight-

I live in Seattle.

Women always want the possibility of long-term.

I didn't just propose.

I just thought that maybe we could...

...have a brief,

totally unsatisfying sexual encounter.

I'm your guy.

Excuse me, I'm sorry, I'm sorry...

...but I've got to get up at 5:00 in the morning

to buy green beans.


...I know you don't need it,

but it's tradition in my family...

- ... to give money to the groom.

- That's sweet.

Thank you, Phil.

And thank you for giving me away today.

You're the best substitute father a girl ever had.

No substitute. I'm the real thing.

Thank you.

He really loves you.


You gonna give me babies, Slim?


How soon?

How soon can we get out of here?

- Hi.

- Hello.

We've been driving around...

...and my wife has fallen completely in love

with your house.

Yes, it's great, isn't it?

We want to buy it. She wants it for our family.

- Well, it's... We're not selling.

- Sure you are.

That's the price.

Don't worry, it's well over market.

- You're out of your mind.

- I know, that's just it.

So before you say no again...

...think how miserable one determined,

crazy person can make you.

Miserable today, tomorrow,

pretty much every day, until the day you sell.

Your kids are grown,

you'll be happier in a smaller place.

Parker, how are you? How's the jump shot?


- Not now, sweetie.

- It's Slim.

Give me a second. Yeah?


Hey, Parker!

Parker, give me a ride to the hospital.
