Watch where you're going, bitch!

What? Thanks for cutting me off!

You almost took

my side view mirror off, slut!

You're lucky I have

to be somewhere,

or I'd f*ck

your ass up right now.

F*ck you! F*ck you!

Did you call me a slut back there?


I don't even know

where that came from.

You ready to get proud?

Oh, dude. Dude.

I'm here. I'm queer.

Better get used to it.

Hmm. Mmm.

Oh, maybe I shouldn't touch you so

people won't think we're together.

Oh, yeah. Get off me.

Stop cock-blocking me.


No. Still cock-blocking.

Doesn't make sense.

There's two vaginas.

I don't know.

Nobody ever changed it.

Mmm, thank you for coming

to Pride with me today.

Thank you

for letting me sleep over.

I was way too tired to drive home.

As usual.

Wait. Hey. Get... Get up.

What? Wrong pillow.

You like this one, stupid.


Curvy. Fits your head.


Oh, you're right. Oh!



Wait. No, what about that girl?

She's really cute,

and she lives two miles away.

You could...

You could walk over there.

And then if you don't like her,

you could just walk home. Mm-hmm.

All right. Maybe later.

Why not now?

Because it's 2:
00 a.m. That's a

really bad first impression.

She'll probably imagine me, like,

laying in bed flicking it.

Flicking. Yes. Yes.

Are you feeling yourself up?

I have this weird dent

in my left boob.

Is that a thing?

Like a reverse tumor?

What? Let me see.

No. I don't see anything.

I see it. Oh, God.

This is why

I don't have a boyfriend.

'Cause I spend all my time

having sleepovers...

and staring at my

lesbian best friend's boobs.

You don't have a boyfriend

because you're way too picky.

I just wanna meet a guy that I like as

much as you. Is that too much to ask for?

Yes. Yes, it is.

I hate everyone but you.

We're screwed.

Hey, I'm Shawneen,

and I'm from Omaha, Nebraska.

I've never really

considered myself pretty.

Yeah, right, Shawneen.

I don't buy for a second

you don't think you're pretty.

You're on a show called

America's Next Top Model.

You obviously think

you're pretty.

She reminds me of Amanda

from Cycle 3.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Her eyes, they're so weird.

Oh, Sasha. What?

Amanda's eyes look like that

because she was legally blind,

and I heard after the show

she went full-on blind.



Do you want this? No. No.

I'm starting

a new case tomorrow.

It's my first one

without the partners.

I gotta be firing

on all cylinders.

Well, lucky me. I don't have

to fire on any cylinders...

to answer the phone all day.

I can crash here, right?

Uh, yeah, sure.

Thank you. Thank you so much.

Give me. Guys, quick question.

Is Vanessa looking over here?

Sasha, is she

talking to someone?

I don't know.

Jenn, look for yourself.

Jen, is she? Is she?

Yeah. She seems pretty

into some girl. God.

Well, you know what?

That's funny.

'Cause I hope some girl knows that

Vanessa isn't in the mind space...

to be monogamous right now, so...

Jenn, you have to get over this Vanessa

thing. It's been like six months.

I'm over it completely. I just think

it's funny that she said that,

and then she started dating someone

monogamously like a week later.

It's just, like,

insanely funny to me.

Is it not to you? Like, what?


Oh. Oh.

Oh, my God, why is every

lesbian named Jen?

I know. It's annoying. That's

why I spell mine with two Ns.

I'm Jen 1.0.

Why do you say that like that's a

good thing? 2.0 is better than 1.0.

Maybe to you.

Could you not sit

so close to me?

I don't want anyone

to think that we're together.
