Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist

Synopsis: It's been three weeks, two days, and 23 hours since Tris broke up with Nick. And now here she is at his gig, with a new guy. How could she have moved on so fast? This begins the night of Nick, Norah and Manhattan. The night of stripping nuns, hotel ice rooms, Russian food, psychotic ex-boyfriends and lovingly trashy ex-girlfriends. It's the night of Julio and Salvatore. The night of holding hands and writing songs and singing in the rain. It's a night they'll never forget.

Hey, this is Tris.

Leave a message after the beep.

Hey, Tris, it's Nick. How are you?

It's about 3 in the afternoon.

I think you're probably

still at school.

I stayed home today.

I took a personal day.

I wanted to finish up

some creative projects...

...and stuff that I've been working on

around here.

Nothing to do with you or anything.

So I'm sorry, real sorry I missed you.

I was hoping to get you on the phone.

Haven't talked to you in a while...

...and I just kind of wanted to

speak to you at some point.

You know, I think last time

we spoke...

...we both kind of said some really

nasty things that neither of us meant.

You know, just, like...

...when you broke up with me,

you know...

...and everything, on my b-day.

Also, that mixed CD

that I left on your doorstep...

...was the last one

that I'll be making for you.

More or less.

Anyway, give me a call.

I'm doing very well.

I hope you're great.

Have a great weekend,

and do something fun, you know.

Just get out there.

Call me, though,

when you get a chance.

All right. Bye.

It's Friday, pumpkin.

I'm sorry. Do you mind?

I'm in my zone.

- Oh, you're in your zone. I'm so...

- What?

- What?

- What?

What? What? What?

Could you please

come join my zone?

Hey, guys.

- Hi.

- Hey, Tris.

He made another one.

Look at the ridiculous cover art.



- Don't do it.

- Don't do what?

Let's go already.

He makes the best mixes in the world.

Look at this cover art.

Tris does not know

what she gave up.

"Road to Closure Volume 12"?

Poor bastard.

You are so in love with this guy

it is ridiculous.

Okay, I have never met him.

I have no idea who he is.

I'm just gonna put this in my iPod.

Is that always there?

Yes, always.


That's where we put the garbage.


- Yo.

- I'm not going.

- What do you mean you're not going?

- Let's load the van.

I don't wanna go.

I'm taking a mental-health day.

We have a gig, Nicky.

This is a big night for us.

This is our first night

with our new name.

We are the Jerk Offs,

and we finally found a drummer.

You found a drummer? Who?

That's a children's toy.

Who's gonna operate that thing?

- You.

- Okay. Thanks for coming by, guys.


We love you, okay...

...but you've been depressed

for a month and it's not cool.

Get your clothes.

We're gonna play this gig...

...then find you something better.

- Someone better.

- Yes.

Not that easy. You don't know

what it's like to be straight. It's awful.

Jersey's only source for indie rock.

And for all of you

Where's Fluffy fans out there...

...for the first time since the last time,

looks like Fluffy's to be found...

...somewhere in the five boroughs


The rarest show on Earth

is rumored to go on after hours... keep an eye out

for those white rabbits.

You never know

where they might lead you.

Fluffy. You can't say no to Fluffy.

- Okay, all right. I'll go.

- Yes.

- Let me put some clothes on.

- Put some clothes on.

- But I'm taking my own car.

- And put on some pants.

- Oh, my God.

- What?


I just got a text from Carrie

saying Where's Fluffy... doing a surprise show tonight.

- Oh, my God.

Last time they had a surprise show

it was at Arlene's. Start there.

Okay, wait.

Promise me that you won't get drunk

and leave me alone the whole night.

When have I ever done that?

I promise.


Did you hear? Who's Fluffy is playing

in the city tonight. I love that band.

It's "Where's Fluffy. "

Whatever. So I'm bringing this guy.
