So did Mom show you the pictures?

Yeah, yeah. She got a little emotional.

Well, if she had it her way,

Mom would have me live at home forever.

Well, at least you'd save

on the rent money.

Hey, do you wanna see my apartment?

I can give you a tour

through the computer.

- What do you mean?

- Okay. Watch. Hold on.

- All right so, this is my living room.

- Oh, nice.

- And then this is my balcony right here.

- It makes it nice and bright.

Yeah. All right. And then

this is my dining area...

- Okay.

- ...Slash dancing area.

- It's big!

- Yeah.

- This is my kitchen here.

- Nice. Even though you'll never use it.

Hey, I can cook a little bit.

Oh, your mom's worried

you're gonna starve to death.

Yeah, well, I'm not going to.

- Wait, Emma, you're frozen.

- Can you see me?

Heh, heh, you should see your face.

Okay, okay.

- Is it good?

- There. You're back.

- All right, this is the bedroom over here.

- Mm. Nice.

- It's still, like, super messy.

- You and your mom did good.

I know. Oh, wait, I wanna show you

one more thing.

Hold on one second.

What's up there?

This is like a little storage unit...

or it could be used

for really small peep...

- Hey.

- Hey, hey.

- Why are you out of breath?

- Oh.

Just doing a little ballet.

Just messing around.

- Oh, you're gonna start dancing again?

- I am so bad.

Oh, stop. So, what did you do today?

Unpacked the whole day.

I didn't even go outside once.

Dude, stop being a homebody

and go out. Go explore, you weirdo.

I know. But I have to get settled first.

You know me and my OCD.

- How was last night?

- Well, I ran into Alex at the wrecker.

- Ugh.

- Yep, he was drunk.

He kept saying how you need to get

off your high horse...

and blah, blah, the usual cra...

Here we go.

The next stop is Essex.

Holy crap. Holy crap.

Holy crap. Holy crap. Whoo!

Okay, I've always wanted to

walk across this, and here I am.

Per capita GDP is about 7500.

That's very low

given the amount that it exports.

Now, compared to the GDP of the U.S.,

which exports a...

it could add trillions.

I think it's 2.7 trillion to the world

economy, and most of that growth...

- Emma, right?

- Yeah.

Your thoughts on economic extraction,

very interest...

- ...emerging markets, right?

- Yeah.

- Are you a night person too?

- Kind of.

I like to do most of my work

when the sun isn't out.

Mm. Yeah, especially in the city.

So many distractions.

- Heh.

- Um...

- Do you mind if I...?

- No. Yeah, sit.

- Cool. I'm Michael, by the way.

- Emma.

- Are you from New York or...?

- No, I'm actually from the midwest.

- Oh.

- Wisconsin.

- Cool. Good cheese.

- Ha.

- Yeah.

- What?

Nothing. It's just that's what

everybody always says.

- They talk about the cheese.

- Ah.

What about you? Where are you from?

Oh, I'm from Westchester.

It's about an hour north of the city.

But I live here now though.

- I just moved here, so...

- Oh, okay.

- Yeah, like a week ago. Yeah.

- Wow.

Jeez, you have so much to see,

and do and to eat.

I should make you a list or something.

- Yeah, yeah, that'd be totally awesome.

- Cool.

Or I could... you know, I could take you

for a cup of coffee sometime.

I know a lot of really good

coffee shops around here.

And what if I don't like coffee?

- Then I can take you to a cheese shop.

- Ha. Nice.

Mm. How about sometime this week?

- Yeah. Sure.

- Cool.

Well, I'll text you. What's your number?

- 608-473-4127.

- Great.



Alex, I swear to God, if this is you...

Player one. Select your match. Italy.

France. England. England.
