All right, I

think it's recording.

Wait, I'm not ready yet.

- Just be in the moment.

Just do what we normally

do when we have sex.

What do we normally do?

We just do it.

Ou! - Shit,

I'm sorry. - Gosh!

Should I put my

hair up? - Sure.

Maybe we don't have to kiss.

Ow, ow, ow. Hey, ow, ow,

ow, you're pulling my hair.

No, the other hair.

Okay, you're

still f*cking it up.

Jesus, God, don't judge me.

This is very vulnerable.

Okay, we just

need to find a rhythm.

Hey... Ow, ow, hey, you're...

My head's... could

you pull me down?

Here, here.

No, don't French kiss

my neck, just kiss my neck.

I don't think that

this is happening.

Aren't you supposed

to fake it, at least?

Happy?

SOCIAL ANIMALS:

Habits define

exactly who we are.

They exhibit our

personalities, our behavior.

Routines regulate our

efficiency or inefficiency.

One's habits affect

their perception of others

and most importantly,

their perception of themselves.

THIS IS ZOE:

FAVORITE POSITION: Missionary

The receiving partner lies on

his/her back with legs apart,

while the penetrating

partner lies on top.

SHE LOVES POLAROID PICTURES

SHE'S NEVER BEEN IN LOVE

House of Wax

ZOE'S NEW BUSINESS IS FAILING

HER COMPETITION:

LASER TOWN:

NOW OPEN!

VULCAN:

VIDEO:

It's hot as balls here.

Hmm, global warming?

More like just Texas, you know?

You think when you get

married still actually gonna do this?

Or are you gonna like

spawn and join the PTA and shit?

Oh, yeah, because

that's totally who I am.

Minivan and all.

THIS IS CLAIRE:

(ZOE'S BFF)

FAVORITE POSITION: Woman on Top

The penetrating partner lies on

her back with the receiving partner on top.

SHE MENAGES LOCAL MUSICIANS

AND SHE'S ENGAGED

TO A REPUBLICAN:

No, but you're a closet-normal

person, for sure. - I agree.

P.S., Lana seems happy...

- Mmm. - In pictures.

In a very, like,

contrived way, of course.

Other people's

happiness disturbs me.

You're a hopeless romantic.

No, I just don't

understand what the big deal is.

Like, the marriage

thing, the baby thing.

It's like, not everybody's

version of normal.

Oh, please, you're

gonna end up with like five.

How long have you known me?

Like a hundred years.

And have I ever once said that I

want to have a baby or a husband?

No, but to be fair, I'm,

like, drunk half the time.

This is just that whole turning

30 drama everybody talks about.

Just let it fall over you like

a warm blanket on a cold day.

I see your blanket,

I twist it, tie it in a knot,

hang myself with it,

and then I address

a note that says,

"This is all your fault."

That's a lot.

Are your eyes gonna

go cross like that, too?

I don't know, I can't really

predict how my eyes will be.

But I'll definitely

stare you down.

Zoe, are you serious?

Oh, hey, Jay, good morning.

You're practically naked out here.

I got kids inside.

You get that, right?

You know what? I can, like, get

a curtain from IKEA or something.

Zoe, as your landlord...

- Whoa, actually, I own my house.

So, you're not my landlord.

Yeah, and I own the

ground that it's parked on.

I own this whole lawn.

But who really

owns the ground?

You are two weeks

behind on rent this month.

I'm so sorry.

I need you to pay

me to use this ground.

Hey, Jay, you know I can

hear the words you're saying.

You don't also have to

act them out with your hands.

Excuse me if my

expressions are intimidating.

Because I need you to pay me.

Yeah, sure, we can

talk about this tomorrow.

You know what? I'm

actually running a little late

to a wedding, so...

- You can pay me tomorrow.
