[rock music playing]

[glass squeaking]

[siren wailing]

[distant sirens wailing]

[cell phone ringing]


[woman on phone]

Hi, baby, it's Casey.

I'm just calling

to check up on you.

How are you feeling?

Um, I guess I'm feeling better

than a couple days ago,

but I just-- I don't think

it's ever something

I'm gonna, you know,

really get used to.


Yeah, I know what you mean.

I don't know

how you do it.

Eh, I just do it day by day.

You know,

if I did my job right,

it's a life saved

versus a life lost.



Well, you're ready

for my birthday party

tonight, right?


Oh, hey, crap.

I have to go.

I'm running really late

and I haven't even started

getting ready yet.


Well, we know Marcus

is just gonna love that.

All right,

I'll see you later.

[suspenseful music playing]


-Oh my God, Marcus.

I don't like it

when you do that.

You scared me.

Then why do you tell me

to be here at a certain time

and you're not ready

until hours later?

-Okay, 10 minutes.


Ten minutes.

The longer you take,

the more I drink.


Whose is this?


Whose is what?

The wallet.

[Jasmine] Oh. Um,

I found it outside.

I was gonna try and return it.

All done.

-Thank you, baby.


All right.

You know,

I think I like the red dress

a little better on you.

Okay, well,

I think I can not die

from your disapproval.

-I... [stammers]

-[Jasmine sighs]

You look great.

You look great too.

Can we please just go

have fun tonight?

Can we?



-Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm.


[hip-hop playing]

Big Daddy, show me

why I wear the crown

I'll be good

if you'll be nice

Thank you.

-Well, let's go.

-Okay, I just need

to get one thing.


- Swing

Can I please just do

one thing really quickly?


-Oh, babe.



All right.

Will you grab my jacket?

-Thank you.


Swing, swing,

swing it on me


Yeah, I definitely want

to go to Vegas.

My friend Alison,

she just took off to Vegas.

She didn't tell anybody.

[muffled dance music thumping]

[patrons chattering]

I wish I can be like that...

so spontaneous,

just going off a whim.

It's exciting.

There's something

romantic about it.

Don't you think?


Man, I'm using my best--

my best stuff here.

It's so funny.


You are.

I'm glad you think so.

Is your girlfriend funny?

I don't have a girlfriend.

Not ever since

I buried my wife.


No wonder you've been

a bit distant.

Is it that obvious?

Um, well,

I just... I have

a good sense about people.

I'm really good

at reading them.



But where would you

disappear to if you could?




you're already here.

Why LA?

I like the pace of it.

You know, everyone coming

and going, keeps it fresh.

I like that.

Well, who are you?

Tell me more about you.

I'm an open book.

Well, I look forward

to reading the pages.

I'm feeling adventurous.

Do you care to join me?


My place is a bit closer.



-Can you slow down?

-Come on.

Come on.

We gotta get going.

All right, he's about

one minute away, okay?


-My Ryde car.

-Ryde car?

Ryde. It's an app.

It's like, um... a taxi,

just more comfortable.

-More comfortable?


In a "my friend is giving us

a ride" type of way.

More comfort--


You've really never heard of it?

Don't worry about it.

He has five R's up.

Meaning he's not

going to kill us.



Hop in.


You can just come in.

Come on.



-Hi, guys.

-How are you?
