has nothing

to do with me, okay?

Are you okay?

Yeah. Fine. I'm fine.

Zeigler?

Zeigler?

Excuse me.

Zeigler!

Zeig?

Zeigler?

My boy hooked me up, okay?

I mean, I'm talking, now,

free passwords

to, like, over 100 sites.

So we're talking... Thank you...

horny coeds,

Japanese girls in bondage

and...

what... granny trannys...

Okay, you did not just say that.

I never looked at 'em. Okay?

I'm just saying,

I have the passwords...

- He totally looked.

- You know he did.

I call it

having access to information.

It's called

having a girlfriend, Stone.

You should check it out.

- Damn!

- Wow, that's harsh.

Sorry.

Shrink in training...

I gotta tell it like it is.

Ha!

Tim!

I'm right here.

What?

Mm! Check this out.

- Oh, he's cute.

- Oh, yeah.

Scroll down...

Gay!

Absolutely.

What?!

It's a boy-toy,

who saw your name is Izzie

and thought you was a guy.

You need to stop hatin'.

- Oh, I'm hatin'?

- Yeah.

Tim?!

What?! It's not me!

I swear!

Okay, who we shutting down?

No one.

No, I just...

thought Josh might call.

He's been avoiding me

for over a week.

Our relationship

has been reduced

to text-messaging.

How tragic is that?

Okay, Mattie, come on.

I know... I know.

I guess I'm still hoping

he'll just...

figure it out.

You need to let go, okay?

You guys have been breaking up

way longer than you hooked up.

If he can't recognize

that you got it going on,

then... you don't need

to be involved with him.

Besides, look,

it's raining men right now.

Right, guys?

Yo. Ready to dance?

We could do that.

That's what I'm talking about.

- Come on.

- No.

- Come on!

- Come on.

Have you seen me dance?

It's not pretty.

Good night.

Hey!

Don't... do that.

Oh. Sorry.

I wanted out of there.

Thought I'd walk with you.

You live the other way.

I'll take the spiral route.

Plus, you know, single guy,

walking alone, late at night...

Well, thanks.

I'm good from here.

See you tomorrow?

Sure.

Okay. Bye.

You have two new messages.

First message, 9:37 P.M.

Mattie, it's Mom.

This is call number three,

honey.

I know you're busy,

but call me back, okay?

I miss you.

Next message, 10:47 P.M.

Mattie, it's Josh. Um...

Never mind.

This is Josh.

I'm not here right now.

Leave a message.

Josh, it's Mattie.

Pick up.

You haven't returned

one of my calls,

and now...

what's with the weird message?

Hey, Iz, are you here?

Ugh...

You know you have to get up.

You have class.

Get up! Now!

Of course there are

other kinds of stalking.

There is public stalking.

There is cyber stalking.

Each with its

own set of behaviors.

What I want to talk about now...

is stalking,

the pathological mind...

...and the other.

Now, the pathological mind...

The pathological mind can only

satisfy its need for the other

by consuming the other;

leading, once again,

to great need,

and, of course,

the cycle begins again.

Now, what I'd like you to do

Friday, in preparation

for the midterm,

is write an essay on

what we've spoken about today,

including in it ritual...

Come on, Mattie, you know

you're gonna have fun.

Chill out, relax.

Have a drink.

- Yeah, but...

- You're gonna come.

We're gonna hang out.

We need this, okay?

I'm gonna call you

right back.
