This boyfriend

was really cute...

handsome, always voted, like,

best eyes, best hair,

that type of thing in school,

so there's like,

a lot of butterflies,

a lot of excitement

for me because that's, like,

you know, it was just exciting

that somebody like that

would be, you know, so

interested in someone like me.

I just remember being

in this Italian restaurant

and we ordered, like, a pizza

to share

and the cheese was kind of

stringing out of my mouth

and, you know, there's just

no good way to handle that.

So, that was embarrassing.

And I thought,

oh, why did you order pizza

on your first ever date?

I mean, he really loved to shop.

And he really loved

to buy things for me.

And he lived with two

really... very out men

who, one time I came over there,

and they were shaving

each other's backs

for a drag contest

and I thought...

it's not typical to...

it's not a typical scenario.

Three years since I'd seen him,

and we were standing there

talking about nothing,

like something completely inane.

And my parents were

boring down on us.

And then completely


I put my finger

on his widow's peak.

Just out of nowhere.

Completely unconsciously.

I hadn't touched him

in three years.

And I remember very distinctly,

like, waking up

in his little twin bed

that he had that we would share

when I was visiting

and finding these long, black

hairs on the pillow.

Yeah, and... and I was sort of,

like, you know, "What's this?"

We broke up

and he gave me an Elvis doll.

It was really weird.

He was like, "I know we...

you're leaving. Here."

And I opened it and it was,

you know,

like a collector's item

Elvis doll

in a wrapping.

It was, like, the strangest

breakup parting gift

I think there could be.

If I saw him or I found out

anything about him,

it would destroy these

beautiful memories that I have.

'Cause there's something about

that first high school romance.

There's, like, a glow to it

in your mind,

even if it wasn't

really like that.

The second we got together,

I instantly stopped caring

about what other people thought,

because I had Jason

and he had me.

And for that last glorious

chunk of high school,

that freedom we shared,

it meant everything.

And then?

Uh, we went

to different schools.

Was it mutual or...

which one of you first decided

to end the relationship?

Mm... neither of us.

Neither of us ended it.

You told me things ended

before college.

Yeah, I suppose that's true,

but in reality,

we didn't break up.

We never have.

Come on.

Go on. Who needs a walk?

What about Sadie?


You took her a couple of

hours ago with Rico and Doc.

What about Molly?

She's getting picked

up in 20 minutes.

Alicia, did you give Moses

a bath like I asked?

I think all these rascals

are good for now, boss.

I think Primo and Doxy need

to learn to get along better.

I'm gonna take them out


I can take them. No, it's all

right, I got them. Come on.

Primo's being a dick

today anyways.

All righty.

See you in 45.

Come on.


I know. I know, Cocoa.

I'm going to be right there.


Come here, come here.

Are you ready to go?

There you go, sweetie.

I am not at all

the type of person

to try out for a reality show.


My show will be for

people who are curious.

People wonder, "What if?"

from time to time.

What about my old boy... Jason?

Are you gonna have to get to

know him, too, if we do this?

I've been in touch with him.

Wow, God, h-how is he?

The way I approached

it with Jason

is that we were doing a show

about past relationships.
