All right. I'm coming,

I'm coming.

You paid him, right?

You paid him?

- Of course I paid him.

- I'm not a tourist.

Thank you. I could use

a little help here.

I'm coming, I'm coming.

Okay. Balloon wrangler.

Thank you.

Watch her head.

Watch her head.

I'm watching her head, Laila.



That went well.

It's fine, it's fine.

All right, Frannie.

You're all right, honey.

Give me your hand.

We're going to get you

out of this cab.

Come on.

We're so close.

I got you.

We're so close.

Oh, hey, look at that.

Leaning on the door.

Okay, ready?



Under your pit.

Under the pitter.

There you go!

Just got to get a hold of her.

Okay, like that.

Under your butt.

We're fine.


You're not going to fall.

I got you.


Oh, my God.

Look at that!

And look at that.


You should have just

come to live with me.


We're going to be fine.

Really? In a four-story walk-up.

A four-story walk-up.

I don't know how they can let

people just leave on their own

without any help.

It's crazy.

What is she supposed to have?

A police escort?


Come on.

- No.

- Yes, you have to.

Watch this.

I'm going to be right here.

Look, it's me. Hi!

I got you.

Got it?

Okay, Laila, lift her.


On three, you guys.

Watch your back!

One, two,



Yay! Attagirl!

You are... Okay,

okay, okay.

This is really the worst thing

that has ever happened to me.

Let's just take a little break.

Here we go. You're doing great.

Why don't you put down

that frigging plant?

Can't just leave it

in the hallways.

There's no way we can

get her up there.

No way.

You guys, I'm really tired.

Oh, let's ask him for help.

No... Oh.

Is he the one with the...?

Yeah, he's an asshole.

He looks strong.

Oh, my God. I hate him.

- You got her?

- Yeah.

Good. Excuse me.

Um, I was just wondering if you

could give us a hand for a sec.


Oh, I'm sorry.

I don't know if you noticed.

Like, we could really

use an extra pair of hands.

I'm sorry, I got to get to work.

She... She got hit by a car.

We just brought her home

from the hospital.

We could really use

an extra pair of hands here.

What do you want me to do?

Well, I don't know.

Uh, okay, what is...?

Hi. By the way,

you're very loud.


Um, what if... What if you,

like, leaned back?

What if she leaned back,

you know, and then...

You know, just like leaned back.


No, no, no...

And then we could help her hop.

Really? Just going

to help her hop.

Wait, wait, wait.

You know what?

I know what we're going to do.



I got it.


Yeah. Do it like this.

Please lord Jesus.

Oh, God...

Yeah. Got it.

Oh... Aah! Aah!

Easy, easy, easy.



Focus. Right here.

You're on my ass.

There you go.

Easy, easy.

Ah... Ah...

Easy, easy, easy.

He got you.

All right.

F*ck me.

What a champ.

That was a really great...

Okay. Thanks so much.

He doesn't look so good.

Listen, I filled your whole

fridge full of food.

Really good stuff.

Don't worry about it.

It's on me.

Henry and I moved

everything around,

so it's within arm's reach...

Wait, where's my didgeridoo?

That thing went

to Housing Works.

Oh, no, thanks.

I got to go.

I totally told you I had to go.


I told you that.

I can show you the email.

What... Okay.

- We went through this already.

- Yeah, but that's totally...

Don't fight.

Please don't fight, you guys.

I'll put the ice in the thing.

That needs to be changed

every three hours.

Yeah, we all got the lesson.

We were all there.

It's good.

Wow. Okay.
