- Cutting edge...

- Mr. Moody.


Sorry for the wait.

Hey, don't even worry about it.

Let's discuss

this loan application.

Well, Cathy...

Can I call you Cathy?

- Sure.

- Great.

- Where are you from, Cathy?

- Van nuys.

I meant your heritage.

Where are your people from?


Yeah, but my family is

fifth generation American.

Great. Well, then you'll totally

understand where I'm coming from.

Cathy, my name is ray moody.

I was born and raised

in Glendale, California,

And I am an entrepreneur.

I believe

in the spirit of innovation.

This country was built on ideas

That are progressive and one

of a kind, wouldn't you agree?

- I suppose.

- Yeah.

Great, Cathy. Well,

I'll tell you, Cathy,

I can't wait for you to hear

what I have in store for us.

Cathy, I run a business

based on one idea.

Helping people.

Isn't helping people the cornerstone

of any worthwhile endeavor?

Isn't that

what makes America great?

Isn't it?

Through years of research

and practice,

I've developed a system of nuanced,

psychotherapeutic techniques

Guaranteed to give clients just

the helping hand they need.

What the... What are you doing?

What's happening?

Oh, my god. Help me!

Hi, Stuart.

Give it to me straight.

What'd you have for lunch today?

- A garden salad.

- Don't lie.

You went to Baxby's again,

didn't you?

No, sir.

You'd rather have a jumbo, bacon

double cheese burger from Baxby's

Any day of the week,

isn't that right, Stu?

Isn't that why

you're so god damn fat?

No. No, sir.

I had a garden salad.

Garden salad?


I found the receipt

in your coat pocket.

You had curly fries, too.

Don't look so down.

It's a matter of fact.

I stopped at Baxby's drive-through

on our way over here.

There's only one problem.

I bought a few too many

of these bad boys by mistake.

Think you can help me out, Stu?

No, I'm not hungry. No.

- Yeah, you are. Open up.

- No, I'm not...

Only 12 more to go.

No! Please, no.

I can't.

- Has it been eight hours?

- To the minute.

Congrats, Stuart. I doubt you'll

be visiting Baxby's anytime soon.

Yeah. I don't think so.

This got a little shit on it

in the scuffle. I'm sorry.

If you need a good dry cleaners,

I know a guy.

No, no, thank you, though.

I have to tell you, you were...

You really scared me

back there at the bar.

- Yeah? Thanks.

- Yeah.

I appreciate that.

Okay. Well,

what is the name again?

You can make it out to

kidnap solutions LLC.

People pay you to kidnap them?

For the simulated experience

of high stakes abduction, yes.

I'm not sure I understand.

Well, you might think of it as

a kind of alternative therapy.

My clients use the service for

any number of curative reasons.


Yeah. I mean,

Sure, some people

do it just for kicks.

But we have any number of people

combating addictions,

Drugs, alcohol, fatty foods.

To that end, we deploy

A number of association tactics

that descended from Pavlov.

He's the Russian...

Are you a licensed psychologist?

No. How is that relevant?

Eighteen months ago,

Your company was based

out of Atlantic city.

That's correct.

And what prompted you

to relocate?

The economy, my business model

was based on tourism.

Did the lawsuit...

Have anything to do

with your relocation?

Absolutely not.

In the interest of

full disclosure...

Give me a break.

Pardon me.

I'm sorry, but before

every encounter

I consult with my clients

to set very specific boundaries

About what's going to work

and what isn't.

I leave a paper trail,

I fax documents.

No, but you...

You didn't in Atlantic city.
