Oh, my God... Freedom.

I feel like my mascara's

running, is my mascara running?

It looks good. Like the

cover of Courtney Love's album.

You just need a crown.

There's a crown.

Hey, Noel, Noel,

can we borrow your crown?

We just need it for like a second.


We just got the royal finger.

I never liked her.

What did we just go through?

I mean, what was that, a prom

or a Celine Dion listening party?

Don't shoot this part.

Okay, what is this place? Tell us...

You'll see when we get there.

Okay, we're doing 20 questions.

What is this place?

- Do they have food?

- Not have 20 questions.

What, you

can't just ask a question?

Aren't we just going to the

hotel? I'm very confused.

I just want to

say, "Hey, what's up?" to

all of the future versions of ourselves

watching this right now.

I hope that we all learn to be as

happy and beautiful

as these two right here

'cause they are going to have

the best prom night of any of us.

Hold on, let me get this.

Tonight could've bit ass.

Except it didn't

because we were together.

Don't make me cry. My mascara is

already f***ed up enough as it is.

You look pretty!

Guys, I love our group.

Guys, what are we doing?

Chill out, just live a little.

We're not going to get caught.

This is not legal. This is not legal.

Danielle, you're going to love

that you did this later on.

And Savannah's getting naked.

Oh, no. No, no, no.

No, Danielle.

If we get a rare

disease from this water,

at least we'll all die together.

I'm not leaving

my dress on the wet ground.

It's dry-clean-only

and my mom will kill me.

On the count of Celine Dion.

One, two, Celine Dion!

No, no, no.

You can no longer work

on your taxes from 1998.

Yeah, I cannot amend

your '98 return. No.

Hi, Dad.

No, no, no, I'm not

laughing at your situation.

Yeah. No, there's a strict

statute of limitations.

So sorry, I'm so sorry.

I didn't realize my dad

wanted me to work until 6:00.

I can't believe you're still filling

in for your dad's old sign girl.

Yeah, you know, I'm just

still trying to figure out

what kind of counseling I'm going to do.

Okay, Al, it's show

time. Let's see it already.

The decorator just put the

finishing touches on it yesterday.

After you!

Oh, my God.

- Sorry.

- That's okay.


Oh, my God.

- You have outdone yourself.

This is impressive. I thought you

were gonna have, like, a fish tank.

Look at the nipples on this


Oh, my God, we're going

to be so popular, Savannah.

That is the VIP section.

We can come any night of the week

and have our own special space.

It is so sexy. I love that we get to

be VIP! Okay, girls, getting ready...

- Let's get this party started.

- My God... No!

Last one, grab your penis.

- Thank you.

Turn them on like this.

I love it.

Hey, no, look, my balls won't light up.

Oh, my God,

that hat is too much.

I mean it truly is the

tiniest hat I've ever seen.

It is, it's like suitable for a mouse.

- You need to wear it to your wedding.

- I can't, I have a veil.

Okay, games, games, games, games.

All right, the way this game works

is you write a caption

for what you think

the woman in this scene

is saying to her husband.

But here is the thing...

Look, look, look.

Look, look. Yes, you

have to make it dirty.

It'll be fun, it'll be

fun, so, all right. Ready?

Set, go.

All right, stop.

Stop, stop, stop, pencils

down. I will go first.

He said he had a package for me.

All right, Danielle, you go.

I love getting mail.

But I spelled it m-a-I-e.

Oh, wow.

It's perfect. All right,

Meg, Meg, Meg, you go.

All right. So, I wrote...

Hi, Matt, this is to certify that

this is the big fat cock I ordered.

Wait, why would you

put Matt's name in it?

Well, this is supposed

to be about you, right?

No, they're about marriage,

they're not about my marriage.

Right, but it's a joke,

like everyone else's.

Well, it's not like everybody else's.

It was a joke. It wasn't

a prediction. You know.

A joke.

How about we do another one?

And why would you tweak

the nipples on the Buddha?

That seemed, like, disrespectful.

Disrespectful to who? To you?

Did you convert to Buddhism?

No, that's disgusting. I'm not Buddhist.

It's... That's Buddha. That's Buddha!

Right, right. But you know that

was a joke about nipples. Right?

And not Buddhism.

Yeah, Buddha is sacred to a

lot of people, but that is...

This is a party, so let's

just forget about it.

Okay, yeah, no, forgotten.

Um, I mean, we

can do another one of these.


So this lady has a

plunger and there's a butt crack.


Hey, sleepy head. Good morning.

Oh, wow.

I shot these on Tuesday.

They were such an amazing couple.

They were so open to all of my ideas.

Great. Where is that?

Over in Seattle. We had to

go near the shipyards though

so we could get something

a little more edgy.

'Cause I mean, look at that wall.


Hey, weren't you supposed to go

to that career counselor today?


Yeah? You should...

Yeah. Yeah, okay. I'll go get ready.


Hello, is somebody there?

It's me, you don't have to come out.

What's this?

What's what? I'm just

gonna watch some TV.

Megan, I don't think

I like this new habit.

I spoke with Anthony,

and he said you were meeting

with the career counselor today.

My God, I know exactly

what she's going to say.

It's just a waste of time.

Megan, honey, I don't want to

see you throw away your education.

You have an advanced degree.

- I know.

- And your father should have

never given you that

stupid job because now...

Is that my girl?

Hey, what are you doing home?

It's his home.

Taking the day off.

- Yeah, me too. Hmm.

- Wanna stay for dinner?

- Yeah.

- Ed.

Hey, is it "make your own pizza" night?

- Sure, great idea. Great idea.

- Yeah.

I promise to love you,

to cherish you and to hold you

and to be the rock in our

relationship for the rest of our days.

I promise to be your baby's

breath when we wake each morning.

And to be your evening rose

at day's end.

And I promise

to be your safe harbor

when the boat is rocking

and when it's not rocking.

I give you the bride and the

groom, Mr. and Mrs. Wanamaker!

And here they are

dancing to the song Mrs. Wannamaker has

picked for their first dance together

as man and wife.

My dad used to make yipping sounds

when I first started to take you out

because he said it was puppy love.

I know. I remember.

Yeah, well, you know,

but it wasn't puppy love.

No... I mean, unless we stayed

puppies for a seriously long time.

- Listen...

- What?


I know it's taken me a

really long time to get here.

What are you talking about?

Okay, well, you know how I took

that guy's seminar last month?

- Right.

- Well, I took a personality test.

And the test came back

and the type that I am...

- Is a procrastinator.

- Anth, I mean...

Who makes up those tests? Come on.

- Experts.

- Right.

Like really smart people...

But that's not important.

What's important is that
