Garden Party

Synopsis: Are you young, sexually confused, just trying to get by? Do you sing, dance or possess some other talent? Welcome to the Garden Party. At the center of the story is 15-year-old April. She is running from one bad situation into another, hoping to find an answer that doesn't involve taking off her clothes. As April navigates Los Angeles, she falls in with a group of confused kids struggling to chase their dreams. The black widow at the center of this web is a sexy, pot-dealing realtor named Sally St. Clair. Anyone who gets too close falls victim to her kinky entanglements. For some it goes bad, for other worse.

Hey. You need a ride?

I'm Davey Diamond.

You're sitting on my face.

Turn around.

That's me. See?

Good-looking guy, right?

You need an apartment?

I can help you with that.

I'll find you a gem.

That's my motto:

"I'll find you a gem."

You get it?

Diamond. Gem.

Give me a call.

You know you're gonna

need a friend in this town.

Let's get a move on.

I'll be in the truck.

I don't know if that's what you guys

were looking for, or whatever.

No, man. It was cool.

So, what's your story?

I'm just looking for a band, you know.

No. I mean, where you from?

Where you living?

We're from everywhere, you know.

We moved around a lot.

Oh, yeah.

I lived all over the Valley.

I'm new in town,

so I'm still looking for a place.

- Who are you staying with, man?

- I got some friends.

Okay. So we gotta chat.

But it was good.

We liked it.

So I'll just call you guys

in a couple of days, then.

Yeah, you know what?

Let me grab your cell phone.

I'm still working on getting a phone... I'll probably have to call you.

You know what?

Here. Grab our old fliers.

Number. E-mail.

Call us tomorrow.

All right, cool.

Hey, you guys mind

if I have another slice?

Take the rest, man.

Grab a beer. It's cool.


I need you to make

copies of these listings,

and bring them to The Standard.

- Got it.

- Then...

...make copies of these,

and bring them to the Simpsons.

- They are so ready to buy.

- Awesome.

Do that, and then call me.

Is it cool if, after I do all this,

I just go home?

Just call me, in case.


- You're up for this, aren't you?

- Oh, of course.

So many people would love your job.

You have a free car...

- I know.

...and a nice place to live.

But I need you 24/7.

Hey. How's it going?

He's a f***ing pig.

Yeah, my stepdad's always trying

to do that kind of sh*t.

- At least he didn't try to touch you.

- Yeah. That would be gross.

How long you gonna

stay there, anyway?

Where's your mom again?

- She's in Vegas.

- She still stripping?

I don't know. She says she's working

as a cocktail waitress.

- Why don't you just move to Vegas?

- She won't let me.

Lock your doors at night.

That's what I do.

I mean, I was, like, hoping that I could

get a job and save up some money.

What kind of job?

I don't know.

My cousin, she lives in Silver Lake.

And her roommate, or something,

is moving out in a couple weeks.

And the rent's like 450 a month.

I know a job where you can make a

quick 450 bucks for a couple hours' work.


You need to feel like you want me.

Like you're hot for me.

Nice. You want some more wine?

No, I'm fine.

Am I... Am I doing something wrong?

You just need to relax a little bit.


You need to look at

me like you want me.

Like you're hot for me.

You know what it's like

to be hot for someone, right?

Okay, you wanna f*** me.

And I got a big dick.


You can see that, can't you?

Yeah. You know what?

Talk to me a little

bit about my big dick.

What do you...?

What do you want me to say?

Tell me how much you wanna suck it,

how you wanna lick it.

I wanna...

I wanna suck your big dick.

Are you watching?

Yeah. Hi, Anna.

Can you hold on a second?

Yeah, well, I had to

run from the other side

of the studio to pick the phone up.

Well, I'm painting.

I don't know.

I don't know.

A few hours, maybe.


I'll just pick up some sushi

on the way home.

- Forget it.

- Thanks, Sally.



- What are you looking at?

- Nothing.

Do you know

how to get gum off a shoe?

Yeah. I can do that.

If you get it right away,

it usually comes right off. There we go.

Just some realtor's card

I won't ever use, anyway.

Buyer or seller?

Me? My mother left me her house.

But my girlfriend hates it.

You should have me check it out.

Ask anyone.

I'm the best in the neighborhood.

Houses are like cars.

After a while,

you wanna trade it in.

I've lived in that house my whole life.

Thanks for saving my shoe.

I went to a garden party

To reminisce with my old friends

A chance to share old memories

Sing our songs again

Can I get a pack of rolling

papers too, please?

- Here you go.

- Thanks.


You got a few bucks I could borrow?

For some food?

Sorry, man.

I don't have anything.

- All right.

- Hey, where you headed?

I'm just, you know, hanging out.

I got some friends...

- You need a ride?

- Yeah, that'd be great.

All right, cool. Hop in.

I like your jeans.

They just... They... They're cool.

- You live here?

- Well, it's my boss' place.

It's kinda part of the deal.

I get to live here... long as I'm on call 24 hours a day,

and I watch over the plants.

So do you have a girlfriend?

Sorry, that's kind of

a personal question.

Whoa, man, this is crazy.

Yeah, and pretty elaborate.

It's all for Sally and her clients.

Why do you think she's the

best realtor in the neighborhood?

So okay.

You get all you want for free?

Yeah. Sally warned me to be careful...

...'cause the last guy that worked

for her ended up in rehab.

So I try to be cool

and only smoke at night.

Plus, a couple nights a week

I go to the gym.

So I don't smoke on those nights.

- Do you work out?

- No, man.

I'm a musician.

You can have some bud,

if you want any.

- You serious?

- Yeah.

It's pretty kind.

Holy sh*t.

You can have that.

She won't notice.

Wow. You're up early.

Yeah, I guess.

I heard the coyotes this morning.

I couldn't go back to sleep.

- These albums are amazing.

- It's just a bunch of old sh*t.

I think they were here

when Sally bought the house.

I love them, though.

I listen to them a lot.

All the time.

Oh, I'm making a pot of coffee.

Is that cool?

Oh, yeah.

Help yourself.

But I gotta get going.

Sally expects me to be there early,

and I have to pick up

coffee for everybody.

So are you gonna stick around?

I mean... See ya tonight?

- Yeah, definitely.

- Okay.

- All right.

- See ya.

Nathan. Get in here.

More packets to go out.

And make sure you put

samples in everybody's packet.

I thought I put them in every packet.

- Okay, okay. Shut up.

- Sorry.

By the way,

how are my samples doing?

I haven't been in there in a couple days.

That is not our agreement.

You go in there tonight...

...and make sure

my babies are doing okay.

- Are you stoned?

- No. Why would I...? Why would I be...?

- I don't want you being stoned at work.

- I'm not stoned.

All right, bye. Hurry up.

The phone is ringing.

Sally St. Clair's office.

- How you doing?

- Real good.

I'd like you to meet a friend of mine.


...kinda young.

I thought that's how you liked them.

Look, just take care of her,

and we'll take care of you.

- Both of you?

- You know it.

This is so frickin' sweet.

I'm diggin' it.

Yeah, it's tight.

I've got some ideas.

- We should blow the f*** up, fool!

- For sure.

Hold up, hold up.

Dude, that was awesome.

When did you write that?

This morning. I was thinking about

what you guys played yesterday.

I put on a pot of coffee,
