Someone's still in bed.

Hey, babe,

what if we stay in

for dinner tonight

and I cook?

Just the two of us?


Instead of going out?

Yeah, sure.

Whatever you want.


That's cool.

I have chicken.

- I like chicken.

I'm a chicken man.


Hi, mom.

Oh, how are you?


You don't play mahjong,

do you?

I gotta go.

Let me call you

in a little bit.

All right,

i love you.

All right. Bye.




Oh, my god.


Oh, um.

Woman on TV:

...San Francisco private jet

to Georgia...

Hey, man,

how's it going?

- Man:
Joshy called me.

- Woman:
Is he okay?

Do you remember

when I put

the deposit down

on that house in Ojai

for his bachelor party?

Well, I guess the person

that owns the house

called, uh, joshy,

and they were like,

"what are gonna do?"

- Right.

- So, um-- so then

he called me.

And was like,

"what do you wanna do?"

'Cause you can't get

the deposit back.

And he's like,


We have the house."

- Are you gonna go?

- Mm, I don't know.

Are you stoned?


Hey, man.

- How are you?

How are you?


What the f***

was that?

Be careful!

I was saying

"how are you?" Before.

Yeah, yeah, I know.

It just-- it obviously

wasn't the best time.







Don't touch it.

It's a f***ing

sniper rifle.

It's a bb gun.


It's loaded.

Goddamn right it is.


Think about what it

would have been like

as a child in 1939

or 1964

to get taken

by your parents

to the New York

world's fair, right?

So they take you

to, I don't know, say,

the Chilean pavilion.

And you're

smelling Chilean food

for the first time.

You've never even

seen it before.

- You're seeing people dressed

in traditional Chilean garb--

hey, guys.

Ari? Adam?

I'm Eric.

- Oh, hey, man.

- Oh, yes, dude.

So funny on

the reply alls, man.

- Hi, nice to meet you.

- Oh, thanks, man.

I like to set

a little tone

over email

just to let people know

what kind of bro

they're gonna get.

- No, it was hilarious.

- For sure. Tone set.

I don't know if Joshua

gave you any background

on me,

but I live with him

in the same housing complex.

Lived with him.

But that's actually what

i think this weekend's

gonna be great for.

It's, like, just

cleansing the palate.

Keep it light,

keep it fun.

Yes, keeping it light,

i think, is Paramount.

You brought a bunch

of board games.


Yeah, this is kind of

the big one that I'm

looking forward to.

"Mecha dungeon crawl,"

have you seen this?


It's a really big, long

complicated co-op game.

That it'll take

a couple hours to

go through the directions.

- So it's like "cranium"?

- No, it's not like "cranium."

It's a lot more

complicated than that.

More like

"apples to apples"?

No, it's not like that

at all either.

We got a portion of time

that will be perfect

for, like, these games.

Like, you and Josh

can do that.

- And, like, you and I can...

- Get high?

- Burn it up.

- I have a one-hitter.

Actually, do you guys mind

not doing that in here?

You know, I just wanna

be able to come in here

and get in bed

and sleep

and not have ash

and detritus

and paraphernalia


Okay, no detritus

in this room.

I'm a backpack hip-hop kid,

you know?

- Oh, of course. Uh-huh.

- J5, dilated peoples,

- like, everybody, you know?

- Yeah, I love

tribe called quest.

- Stone's throw.

- Yeah, stone's throw is cool.

But I also like t swift,

you know?

- Josh:

- Hey, Joshua!

Hey, Eric.

Oh, my god!

Holy sh*t.

Hey. Hi.

I'm katee.

- Hey.

- Thanks for coming, dude.

- Yeah, yeah, thanks...

- Heard so much about you.

How are you?

You okay?

I don't know who you are.

I like hugging you, though.

- I'm katee.

- So, uh,

are you, like,

the property manager here?

- No.

- Of the prop--

no, no.

- No, no.

- No, I'm just--

I'm katee.

- Yeah, katee from Ojai.

- Katee from Ojai.

- Friend from Ojai.

- Just met last night.

Do you wanna hang out?

We're gonna get into a Cypher.

- I should probably go.

- Okay.

But you have fun.

Have fun.

- I'll walk you to your car.

- Oh.

- Bye.

- Katee:
I'm so glad

I got to see you.

- Um, yeah.

- Yeah.

She seemed

really cool, man.

- Who, katee?

- Mm-hmm.

Yeah, she was, she is.

She is very cool.

- How did you meet her?

- I got here yesterday.

- Right.

- So I was here

before anyone else,

and, uh,

i had nothing to do.

- So I went to

the bar in town.

- Uh-huh.

And I don't know.

I just, like,

was at the bar

and she came up to me,

starting chatting,

and it was, like,

super easy to talk to.

"It was." She was

super easy to talk to.

Good for you, man.

I'm really happy for you.

Well, look, she's cool.

She really is.

I mean, we're not gonna

get married or anything,


Who else are we gonna

be able to celebrate

this, uh,

sexual victory with?

Yeah, when is

everybody else coming?

Um, this--

this is

actually the crew.

Everybody else

kind of flaked.

I know it's

only four of us.

Is that weird?

No, no,

it's not weird at all.

I think, um-- I think

a small crew is cool.

Yeah, we're gonna

be like the Beatles.

We are like the Beatles.

- You're like John and Paul.

- I'm Ringo 'cause

i keep it light

and I look a little bit

like a possum.

And I'm George

'cause I'm stony

and I, you know,

can't get enough of the sun.

I'm, uh,

I'm George Martin.

Yeah, the integral

fifth beatle.

I love

meeting new people.

This guy's

got f***ing blow.

You're dropping

squirt bombs.

This guy won't

get in the pool,

but he will.

- If it's weird,

say it 'cause I know...

- It's not weird.


Hey, what are you

doing over there, man?

I'm still trying

to get the Wi-Fi to work.

Yeah, we're in

a cabin in Ojai.

The Wi-Fi's

not gonna work.

Yeah, but, I mean,

i can't not be accessible

on the Internet

and also up here with

no cell phone reception

- for an entire weekend.

- Who cares?

It's the weekend.

When I got off the 101,

i called shauna

and I was like, "okay,

I'm going where there's

no reception.

- Love you."

- Yeah, but I didn't

make that call to Marissa.

So she doesn't know

that I'm here

and she doesn't know

that I'm unreachable

should she be trying to call

or email me or whatever.

Why doesn't Marissa know

that you're here?

She just,

you know, decided

that she needed

to be somewhere else

that I don't live

for the time being.

Oh, sh*t.

I'm sorry, man.

She's just basically

coming at me

and saying, you know,

that after 10 years almost,

that there's

an entire life

that she feels

like she's missing

and that she sort of

needed some space,

and i

responded to that

by being what I felt

was very attentive

and what she felt

was clingy.

I'm sorry.

It's-- it's gotta

be really hard.

- Break-ups are tough.

- It's not a break-up,

you know,

at this time.

- Okay.

- I think that

there might be

some benefit here to having

some friends around.
