I like these

sheets that you bought.

Yeah,

they're so soft.

What's the thread count?

No shit.

- Feels good.

- Yeah.

You're so sexy.

You're sexy, too.

- Thanks.

- Welcome.

- I love you.

- I love you more.

Urn...

So I forgot to tell you Weiner

can't do the Rome office stint,

so it looks like I'm going

to Italy for the summer.

Italy.

And therefore, I think

that this is a good time

for us to evaluate

our relationship.

Really?

Honey,

I'm not proposing.

I'm evaluating and

after my evaluation,

I've realized that we're both ignoring

something really obvious here.

We always go to Sarabeth's

for brunch on Sunday,

we switched from sour cream

to Greek yogurt together,

you wear your bra

when we're having sex.

Look at the fucking pajamas

that we're wearing.

I am saying

that we are boring.

That I am bored,

that I am, like,

crazy-out-of-my-mind bored.

The most exciting part

of the sex that we just had

was when my penis was

chafed by your NuvaRing.

We can spice things up. How about

a blowjob in the bathroom'?

No, Lauren, stop it. Just stop it.

I was just inside of you.

- No...

- Okay, okay.

This is us.

We could fix this.

We could fix this, okay?

Lauren, let's just talk

when I get back, okay?

We'll have had some distance, and

you'll have moved out of this place.

This is my home. I've

lived here for two years.

Lauren, I tried

to tell you.

When?

Last month

when we were walking through the

West Village and I said to you,

"it's not for me, but I could

so see you living here."

I should pack.

I'll just start

in the kitchen.

Lauren...

You're sitting on

my phone, I think.

Thanks.

Hi, can I please get

some fried dumplings

and an order of

orange chicken?

That'll be how long?

Okay, see you

in 20 minutes. Bye.

And who may

I ask is calling?

Hey, it's me,

your pathetic

29-year-old

intern friend.

Well, there's always

a spot for you at Happy Nails.

Never. I would never... Comedy?

You wanna see some comedy?

Never. I would never consider

working there in a million years.

Are you kidding? For one

thing, I'm not Asian enough.

Here you go, comedy.

What's up?

You called. Comedy?

Yes, I made you more fliers. Are you

ever gonna let me see your show?

I would consider

letting you go in never,

but I will meet you at

Shake Shack in 20 minutes.

I can't.

I'm sexercising.

And this place is

full of windows...

- Hello! Excuse me?

- ...gets lots of light.

I'm being robbed.

Got to go, bye.

Look at this nice,

long hallway.

As a matter of fact, why don't

you go look in the living room?

Great crown molding,

a view of Gramercy Park.

Yeah, my view

is beautiful.

What the hell, man?

I live here.

You cannot just drop

in on me like this.

I told you 60 days ago

that this building

was no longer

going to be rent-controlled

as of June 1st.

And I told you that this is

my grandmother's apartment

and I've lived here

for five years

and Gram doesn't want me

moving her things.

All right, hey, why don't you

just give me another month

so I can get

my book advance, okay?

You're writing a book?

Not at this exact second,

but I have a lot of ideas.

You've got

four days, Katie.

If you can't pay,

you've got to move on,

or find a damn roommate.

Hey, what

do you think?

All right, let's go.

Come on.

That's fine! Have fun with

my grandmother's ghost.

She talks in her sleep

about the Holocaust!

Okay, honey,

you have to stop pouting

because now you're depressing

me, you're depressing Zelda,

you're just

creating this, like,

pea soup of depression

in this room.
