Okay. Let's see where we are.

We could move this, get

rid of that, kill that.

That kind of freaks me out. Don't need her.

We can get rid of that.

That's done.

Okay, we could start with this.

I know it's a hard-hitting piece,

but come on, you guys, it's the Internet.

We need traffic, traffic, traffic.

What do you got?

- How about this?

- It's perfect.

Now, doesn't she look smart and

knowledgeable about immigration reform?

- Yeah.

- Yeah, yeah. She does, right?

I'm fucking with you people.

This isn't a porn site.

What are we, nerds trying

to look at boobies?

Come on, Keep looking.

Shit! Hello?

Hey! Baby, where are you?

Are you still at work?

No! Not even close.

Just so you know,

the movie starts in 10 minutes.

- I know! Give me your pants.

- What?

- I'll buy you lunch tomorrow. Come on.

- No.

I'm your boss. Give me your pants.

Please try not to be late.

I really hate missing the beginning.

I know. I know.

Give me your pants. I'm coming, baby.

I'm almost there!

- How far away?

- I think I see you!

- Where are you? I'm here.

- So am I.

So many people. What are you wearing?

I'm wearing the only clothes

outside the theater,

because I'm the only person

outside the theater!

I love that outfit.

You look so sexy in that.

You know that I love this movie.

If a prostitute and a ruthless businessman

can fall in love,

then anyone can.

I know this means a lot to you,

which means it means a lot to me.

Well, apparently it doesn't.

I'm looking at you right now.

I can see you!

Jamie!

Hey!

- Hey.

- You made it.

- Yeah. Hey.

- Hi.

- Sorry I'm late.

- It's okay. I got us sandwiches.

I got you turkey, no cheese,

gluten-free bread.

You sure this was prepared

in a nut-free facility?

Yes, I'm full aware of our allergies.

Y.

Hey, I'm here! I'm here. I'm really sorry.

We missed Your Body Is a Wonderland.

Okay. Only one song.

That's not so bad, right?

It was fucking Your Body ls a Wonderland!

Well, the good news is,

he has so many good ones.

Here's an idea:
next time, instead

of being late, just shit on my face.

'Cause that's kind of the same thing

as missing Your Body ls a Wonderland.

Okay, come on. We really gotta go in.

Julia Roberts is about to put on

her really tall boots.

We need to talk.

I think we should take a break.

I just feel like

we should chill for a while, you know?

- You're doing this?

- You're breaking up with me?

You said I was your soul mate.

I did? When?

When we were at that bed and breakfast

having sex.

- But, you know, that doesn't...

- That doesn't what?

- Count.

- I was tied up at work. I'm sorry.

Maybe you should care

a little bit less about work

and a little more

about the girl that you're dating.

'Cause last time I checked,

work doesn't reassure you

that liking a finger up your ass

doesn't make you gay.

I never said "go up." Okay?

I just said lightly around...

It's like a little button.

You know what? Not your issue any more.

Is this why you were late?

You were worried

about how to break up with me?

Oh, no, no.

I was trying to decide what to wear.

- So, you went with sneakers and a hoodie.

- Yeah.

What, are you gonna

take the SATs after this?

Don't lash out, okay?

- You're better than that.

- I'm really not.

I just think

we're heading in different directions.

Yeah, you to the John Mayer concert

and me not.

Thank you for doing this

before the concert, by the way.

Best breakup ever.

He is the Sheryl Crow of our generation!

Let me just ask you a quick question.

And just know that I am not at all

crushed by this breakup.
