- Boo!

- Carly!

What are you doing here?

Just a little light reading.

Are you a fan of Euclid?

Was Pythagoras into triangles?




What are you...

Damn it, Hercules.

Leave! Go, go, go, go.

Yup, that's my family, or was.

If all the world's a stage,

then my mom's the star.

Look, I know she means well,

I just wish her spotlight

wasn't always so close to me.

- How did you do that?

- You're welcome.

I did not know

how to turn that on.

- Turn the knob, mom.

- Yeah, okay.

I thought you were gonna

take those pictures down.

Oh, yeah.

I'll get to it soon.

No big deal.

- Okay.

- Wait!

- Where you going?

- I'm late.

I made homemade jam.

CY Epstein here, owner of CY's.

Home of the greatest selection

of new and used car stereos

and old audio equipment

in all of Southern California.

From speakers to nad, Bluetooth

and even musical equipment.

If you can't find it at CY's,

you can't find it.

And don't forget to check out

our Venice location.

Home of the one and only

consignment mountain.

Wow, I might be

the first guy in history

to ever stay home

for a not-girlfriend.

That's really...

That's really funny.

You should tweet that.

Jeremy, my best friend,

we met in fourth grade,

and formed a candy cartel.

I was the brains

and he was the distribution.

We made $11 cash.

Is it the sex thing?

'Cause it's so not a big deal.

- Girls like virgins.

- Clearly.

I can only help so much.

Whatever your problem is, you're

behaving like a real vagina.

And how is that?

By giving birth?

Creating a pathway

for menstrual blood

of just self cleansing?

Vaginas are cool.

Oh, right, Carly.

She's smart, funny,

and a great musician,

even if she doesn't always

believe in herself.

I've heard people say

that she's really pretty,

so, that too, I guess.

When your mom turns 40,

do you think you'll have

to stop jerking off to her?

You know that line

we talked about?

That's crossing it.

Good morning, teach.

Hey, morning, Ryan.

You know, black viper has 25...

350 watts, four to 3,000 hertz.

Mr. Ramsdell, my favorite

teacher of all time.

He's been here all summer

checking out the black viper,

but never even turns it on.

I guess he's going through a

late-life crisis, or something.

That's correct.

- Orientation's next week, right?

- Yes.

You're gonna love

Boston in the fall.

Jeannie went to grad school

there after we got married.

Did I mention that to you?

You did.

You did.


Good talk.

Good talk.


Until he came along

in ninth grade,

I was the undisputed heavy

weight champion of the nerds.

I kind of told him

that if I went to UCLA

we could be roommates.

I thought he wasn't listening.

He was.


Oh, Derek, what the hell!

- What are you doing?

- Gettin' my blade on, roomie.

By the time school starts,

I'm gonna be a master.

You're not really going

to m.I.T, are you?

You'd better tell me now,

or I'm gonna get totally hosed

on the roommate sitch, dude.


Do not f me, Ryan.

I will not f you, Derek.

I just want five bucks.

- Thank you.

- All right.

- Go!

- Hey.

- Good morning, Ryan.

- Hey, Gary, hey.

That's Gary, my boss.

He can fix toasters.

Not sure why, but he can.


divided by 16.

Henry, our security guard.

He was a champion prize fighter,

but a bad blow to the eye

sent him into early retirement.

He's been working

at the store for 30 years,

which is pretty much

the definition of bad luck.

Uh, 286.81.



Good morning, honey.

Ellen, she scares

the f*ck out of me.

She wants to be a vet, I think,
