[ Car Alarm Chirps ]

[ Clears Throat ]

Listen. Um,

I had a great time sitting

next to you on the plane.

Silver Lake, right?

[ Girl ] Every morning,

as I drive away,

I am reaching back for you.

It is a helpless feeling,

this wishing, this wanting,

this knowing you will arrive...

just minutes after I have gone.

Well, I thought that

was really freakin' good.

[ Woman ] All right. All in favor

of including this piece...

in our spring issue,

raise your hand.

Nearly unanimous.

And our author, Kolt.

Sylvia Plath would be proud.


Thanks, dude.



- Um, hello. I'm Martine.

- Hello.

Hey. Hi.

[ Chuckles ]

I'm Peter.

Let me grab this for you.

Come on in.


Julie can't wait to meet you.

What's making you feel

so powerless?

I'm way too afraid

to even approach a woman...

that might be on

my intellectual level.

I know what you're gonna say.

It's not 'cause

I'm afraid she'll reject me.

I'm afraid I'll reject her.


Why is that?

You know, a lot of smart women

think too much to look good...

and talk too much to f*** well.

I feel like such an a**hole

saying these things to a woman.

I do get what

you're saying, actually.

'Cause the movie

comes out this week.

Everyone's acting like I'm supposed

to be excited, but I f***ing hate it.

And I wish I could say it looks nothing

like the script I handed them,

but they didn't change

a goddamn line.

I just wrote something

that isn't very good.

We're gonna need to stop.

[ Groans ] Don't do

this to me, Julie.

I will see you on Wednesday.

There's a lot of life that'll come

out with the sound. There's...

You know,

like the bug's footsteps,

or maybe his breath.

You know, what would it sound like if

you could hear the bug's heart beat?

Or, like, heartache.

What would that sound like?

[ Chuckles ]

You know?

Yeah. All right.

I think this'll be fun.


I'm really excited.

Thank you so much for putting

aside time to do this with me.


So you're working on, like,

a big studio movie right now?

I am, yeah.

They're not picture-locked yet.

So you're in luck.

Hey, Peter, is this a

take-from-the-fruit-bowl night?

Martine, this is Kolt.

Kolt, Martine.

[ Martine ] Hi.


What is a

take-from-the-fruit-bowl night?

Oh, it just means that everyone's

on their own for dinner.

Nobody's taken responsibility

as of yet.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Peter ] That's a maybe?

Hey, David.

Oh, hey, Kolt.


I'm just getting out of here.

Crazy plans?

Just finishing up

some things for Peter.

How about you?

Lots of homework?

Not really. I already did this

history thing that's due Friday.

Well, it's good

not to procrastinate.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah.

I do anyway sometimes though.


Oh, yeah. Of course. I'm giving

you advice I can't take, so...

[ Kolt Chuckles ]

Eating bark in a tree.

Slow or fast?


Wind, and also sand

blowing in the wind.

Sounds that only ants hear.

Ah, need to be more specific. You know what?

We'll come back to it.

Okay, gasping.

Sticky stuff.

Bowling pins.

Blood on pavement.

- Got it.

- Really?

Hey, come on.

An old train.

Okay. Um, bodies rubbing

up against each other.


So people having sex?

Yes. But not like, "Uh, uh, uh."


Good to know.

[ Chuckles ]

Hi, Dad.

Hey, bud.



[ Julie ] Is she coming to eat?

Where is she?

Jet lag.

Is it gonna work out?

I think so, yeah.

She's really sweet.


I think

she's really talented too.

Hey, who is in the pool house?

Her name is Martine,

and she is a friend

of my friend Miriam's,
