Tell a story

of a life together

every house an allegory

like the smell of smoke,

it lingers on


- Hi.

- Hey.

You wanted to, um,

talk about Mila.

We broke up yesterday.

You were dating her?

Um... I want you

to help me get her back.

Oh, Mila and I

aren't friends anymore.

- That's okay.

- She hasn't changed at all.

Oh, well, you're probably

better off, then.

She was never interested

in people

for the right reasons, anyway.


Look, Mila wants a ladies man,

confident guy

who gets all the girls.

It's not you, is it?

I could learn.

Uh... You could teach me.

I just need techniques

that work.


3 past.

Would you like

to grab a coffee?

You had to ask the time

before you knew

you wanted to ask me out?

Asking the time was my in.

I couldn't hit on you

straight up.

- Well, you should've asked straight up.

- It shows confidence.

- Okay. Okay.

- Let's go again.

Hey, what's up, girl?

Want to roll with me,

get some coffee?

Yeah, I want to roll with you,

right off my feet off the

sidewalk and into the gutter.

- Let's do it.

- Ain't happening.

You're putting on a persona.

Are you an actor?

- No.

- Then why are you acting up now?

Hold the bus.

00. May not be possible.

00, 11:00,

stop thinking with your cock.

What are you hesitating for?


- I can't run after her.

- That's desperate.

You said never look desperate.

You know the deal. Go now.

- Ah... Excuse me.

- Excuse me.

Um, sorry, uh,

can I ask you a question?

Sure, spit it out.

- Oh, that's charming.

- Prince charming.

- Well, what's the question?

- Can I buy you a coffee?

Uh, how long is this question

you have to ask me

over a cup of coffee?

That's the question.

I don't even know you.

I thought you were,

I don't know,

doing some environmental survey

or something.

No, I'm just a boy

asking a girl for a coffee.

- See that machine in there...

- Coffee is only $1.

Yeah. Go get high.

- Congratulations.

- Your first win.

If I was begging.

Asking a random cutie

straight up at this stage

was guaranteed

to get you knocked back.

- That was the plan.

- An evil plan.

To get you used to

being knocked back.

Didn't hurt much, did it?

Hurt like a paper cut

on my eyelid.

No pain, no game.

So you're saying I got game?

You're playing the game.

You haven't got game.

- But I be a player, yo.

- All in good time.

Right now, you pay to play.

You got the money?

I have to pay you?

No, I was just being silly,

but seriously, can I borrow $20?

Here you are, sir.

- Hey, you idiot.

- What?

- Oh! Oh! I-I-I-I...

- What is this?

What am I supposed to

do with this?

- I-I-I-I'm sorry.

- I didn't know.

I didn't... you should... but

buy your... buy another soda.

Buy yourself a soda.


- Sorry, is my son bothering you?

- Come on, Astor.

- Idiot.

- Very sorry.

So, how did you and Mila

get together?

Well, let me tell you about it.

Must've been the mixing drinks.

Sambuca and bloody Marys don't

really go well to-together.

- Just one more cabernet.

- Well...

- Wee.

- Oh.

When they fight, they fight


And when they come home


- Happy Birthday, Astor.

- Your birthday cake.

- Thanks, mom.

- Cherry, like you like it.

Maybe tomorrow.

I'm sorry.

All right.


Was it too much too soon?

Was it little too late?

He got the message she left

on his car in the rain

and then the words

that come to you


- Astor.

- Hi.

Hi. Hi.

You just can't let it go

You're a little drunk.



I'm just a little tipsy.

Okay. Okay.

There's no clocks.


Okay. Sorry.
