Search Party

Synopsis: Convinced that his buddy Nardo (Thomas Middleditch) is making the mistake of a lifetime by marrying Tracy (Shannon Woodward), Jason (T.J. Miller) puts a dramatic end to their wedding. When the furious bride decides to take her Baja honeymoon solo, Nardo follows her-where the lovesick groom is carjacked and left stranded, naked and penniless in a remote part of the Mexican desert. Helpless, Nardo sends out an SOS to Jason and their pal Evan (Adam Pally), an up-and-coming ad exec slated for an important business meeting the next morning. During their ridiculous attempt to rescue Nardo, the trio embarks on a series of increasingly outrageous misadventures involving con artists, drug smugglers and even the Federales.

This van is kind

of weirding me out.

This van and the weed

is freaking me out.

I feel like I'm

on another planet.

I don't know,

I like Marty's van.

You know, it's like

a cozy cocaine mansion.

You know I met this

dude like five times?

Marty still does not

remember my name.

Yeah, where'd you find that guy?

He manages the casino where I

won the pai-gow tournament.


Hold on.


Tracy's coming to

pick us up, so...

Hold on a second.

Did you just invite your

fiance to your bachelor party?

Is that the cool thing to do?


Did we just witness that?

I didn't...

No, I mean...


all the bars are closed

and our designated driver's like

passed out in the back.

I thought...

I thought it was over.

Is it not over?

Well, let us celebrate

the brief moments

that we have left

with each other?

Here's to the three of us.

Friends for life.

Thanks, guys.

- This was an awesome night.

- I will drink to that.

Hey, you guys...

You guys think I'm, like,

doing the right thing, right?

Like marrying...

Marrying Tracy?

Are you happy?

If you were happy,

would you even ask that question?

Well, it's not necessarily...

I mean, marriage can be scary,

even if you found the right girl.

Yeah, but you're

scared of everything.

You won't even ask out the attractive

girl who works at your office.

We work together.

So did Siegfried and Roy.

And look at them.

One of them got mauled

by a white tiger.

It was a wildebeest.

They don't do a wildebeest show.

Whatever you decide,

that is your decision.

Wait, hold on, hold on.

It's not his decision.

It's our decision.


It is.

That's what you said.

We all have veto power

over each other's girls.

No, I said that

when I was nine.

I was a 9-year-old boy.

We made a pact.

I don't know, I'm sorry,

I shouldn't have brought all this stuff up.

No, dude.

You wanna make a pros and cons list?


- I love her.

- That's a pro.

I'm happy.

Okay, we're ahead of the game.

Cons would be she eats slow.

She just chews so slow.

"She chews slow"?

That's the biggest con you have?

I mean, three-hour dinners

for the rest of your life.

And I just sort of have to

change my old self in order

to be my new self. You know?

That's part of the thing.

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Are you saying that you can't

be yourself around Tracy?


coming out wrong. No.

I can be myself.

It's not that I can't be myself,

I just sort of need to

kind of have this new self.

You're either being yourself

or you're not being yourself.

I'm myself, okay, guys?

It's just that I have to...

You have to?

I want to evolve

this old self into a new self,

so the old self

goes to sleep

and the new self comes awake.

And sometimes,

the new self is truer

than any of the other

old selves could be.

Do you...

Do you do you

really wanna do this?

Yes. Of course I do,

come on.

I'm just high, man.

I'm just high.

Forget I said any

of this stuff, okay?

I just wanted to

talk things through,

you know, before

I jump off the bridge.

"Jump off the bridge"?

Yeah, jump off the bridge.

It's like a really

famous saying.

Yeah, it does not pertain

to getting married.

I think you have that

mixed up, actually, but...

Hey, Tracy.

Yeah, yeah, I'm coming out.

Coming out.

- Did you just hear that?

- Yeah.

He just equated

getting married to suicide.

No, I think he's having

jitters or something.

That's not the jitters.

She's a good person.

She's mean to waiters.

She had hot coffee burned on

her bare legs by that guy.

- Hey, guys.

- Hey!

There she is!

How much weed did you smoke?
