Rainbow time.

Damn it.

Hey, are you awake?

Lindsay, are you awake?


Do you remember

the first time

we held hands?

We were walking

into that diner

after staying up

all night together.


I just...

Never thought I'd...

Find someone like you.

Well, me too, sweetie.

Probably my brother again.

We should go

if we want to be on time.


I love you.

I love you.


Hey, bro.

Um, can you please

call me back,

and let me know that

you're bringing a tape?

Also, ask Lindsay

if she's cool

with being in it.

Maybe she doesn't mind

doing some nudity?

Some tasteful nudity?

For the scene.

It would be good

for the story.

Just kidding, bro, all right?


Don't worry.

I mean, unless she

really wants to.

I don't know,

maybe she's kind of a...

A little freaky.

All right, well,

please call me back.

This is shonzi.


Rainbow time.


What's that?

Oh, Gretchen, my boss,

posted the video

we made.

Oh, cool.

Yeah, but some

of these comments are...

Really crazy.

Damn it, dude.

He keeps calling

'cause he wants to...

Wants us to shoot

this stupid movie with him.

Oh, he's just

so excited, it's cute.

You know why?

'Cause you're

gonna be there,

it has nothing

to do with me.

Just so you know,

I'm warning you.

Now, what is his...

Challenge again?

I can't remember.

Is it down's?

No, no, he's just

a little slow,

and in the womb,

he didn't get enough oxygen

because of his umbilical cord

or something

wrapped around his neck.


-Ah, yeah.

Well, there's also...

Also, there was this...

Incident when we were kids.

He likes to

hold that over me.

What happened to him?

I ran him over,

in a car...

Oh, Todd!

I know.

I was playing

in my dad's car,

I didn't see him

behind it.

Why was he behind it?

'Cause he was

humping the ground.

Oh, hi, shonzi.

What do you want?


Get out of here!

Wait, but I really like you.

I saw you laughing at me

with those girls.

You were pretending

that you liked me?

And you're just trying

to mess with me.

And that's not cool.

Oh, I'm sorry.

Let me make it up to you.

What do you

have in mind?





Wait, wait, wait.

Okay, if my dad asks us

to stay the night,

let's just say that

we have something

early in the morning,

and we can't, please?



I know that you're

stressed out about this,

but if you think you're

gonna have a bad time,

then you probably will.

You don't know shonzi.

He's a lot.

He's a lot.

-He's a lot?


Well, did you use

the essential oil blend

that I made you?



I think I left it at home.

- We should go back.

No, I know

you're kidding.

It's very funny,

but it does actually

really help.


Oh. Oh, yeah.

Oh, oh, oh...


You can't just

barge in, dad!

You're in here playing

with your f***in' dolls?

I asked you to help me

an hour ago.

I asked you

to straighten up.

Yeah, well, I'm

working on the movie

that I'm gonna make

with Todd and Lindsay.

Please, tonight,

can we just have

a nice, normal dinner?

Dad, we're gonna have

a normal dinner, all right?

But we're working

on this movie,

and you gotta

give me time for that.

-I'll get that, all right?

-Wait, no...

Dump the garbage,

take my jacket off.

-Well, I got...

-Take it off!

I got to do something.

We don't want any.

- Oh...

Very funny, dad, okay...

- Hi.

-Welcome, welcome.

-Come on in.

-Good one. Thank you.

Welcome to our humble abode.

-Oh, wow.

-Hey, dad.

Todd, good to see you.

You too.

So, this is Lindsay.


-Hey, Lindsay.

-So nice to meet you.
