It's been

a lot of fun, ginger.

We've had some

good times, right?

I know I have,

and I think

you feel the same way.

[Mimicking ginger]

Oh, my God.

Don't say what I think

you're gonna say.

[As himself]


We had a good run.

The sex...

The pointless conversations

before sex,

all of it.

But let's face it,

we have nothing in common.

[As ginger]

Don't, Dylan. Please.

You mean everything to me.

This will rock my world.

You complete me.

[As himself]

Shh, t-t-t-b-b-b-bye, ginger.

It's over.

Now, you're a good kid.

I know you're gonna

land on your feet.

[Bird chirps]

Please don't cry.




No good.

It's not you, ginger,

it's me. I come from a--


What are you doing here?

You don't smoke.

Yeah, I know.

I'm trying to start.

Ginger, I think

we should talk.

I gotta get ready

for work.


Ginger, we've had

some good times.

Dylan, before you go

any further,

there's something

I've been wanting to say.

I don't think I'm the girl

you're looking for.

Oh, my God, don't say

what I think

you're gonna say.

You keep trying

to change me.

No, I don't.

Yes, you do.

You can't accept the fact

that I don't like

caddyshack or ac/dc.

Well, you never listened

to their first album.

And what's with the

community college crap?

Are you telling me it

wasn't you who put these

under the sink next

to the tampax?

Nice touch.

Don't you get it?

I already have a career.

Come on.

Look, Dylan...

We have nothing in common.

What about the sex?

Oh, Dylan,

sex isn't everything.

And you said that yourself

just the other night.

Well, that was right

after we had sex.

Don't listen to me.

There's a...

Weird half hour there

where somehow

it isn't important

to guys anymore.

Shh, shh, shh. Look,

I can't do this right now.

I'm almost up.

It's over. We're done.

So accept it.

Be a man.

Well, when you put it

that way,

I don't know why we went

out in the first place.

[Knocking on door]

Hey, ginger, you're up.

It's coming back to me.

Miss you.

[Van halen record plays]

You, too.

Warner home video

hey, thanks for coming.

Enjoyed it.

Hey, boss.

Hey, man.

Hey, Lisa.

Hi, Dylan.

That's a cool dress.

You want to play motorboat?

I'll start.

[Imitates motorboat engine]

Keep laughing.

You're next.

Ricky, you get that

same lunch every day.


We're gonna have to

name it after you soon.

[Mouth full]

That's fine.

Keep eating.

Don't slow down.

You guys ok here?


Could use

some water.

Can we get

some water on 9?

First one's free.

Hey, buddy.

What do you got

goin' there?

Not hungry?

Better eat up.

Don't want to end up

like me,

skinny and dumb.

Not the way to go.

Turtle, what

are you doing?

Hey, boss.

I'll tell you what.

I got those plates

looking wonderful.

[Coughs] How was

that sh*t sandwich?

We serve those now?

Go take care of that.

You're dealing

with customers.

Whoa, fire. Fire!

Fire! Fire!

Put it out!

I got it. I got it.

I got it.

You ok?


Ah, great.

86 the souffls, guys.

You know the Norton's have

been waiting 30 minutes

for one of these?

Relax, mark,

I'll handle it.

How am I supposed to put out

50 entrees tonight

with only one oven?

I'm sorry.

You want me

to let the place

burn down?

You know what?

At least we would've gotten

the insurance money.

I told you, don't worry

about the money.

I'm meeting with ray

in the morning.

We're gonna get

the loan.

Really? When?

I mean, I've been hearing

about this phantom loan

since you talked me into

this place 3 months ago.

I mean, look around
