- [Chris] Have you ever seen Brown Bunny?

- [Chester] No.

What's that?

[Chris] It's a movie with Chlo Sevigny

and Vincent Gallo.

And in it, Chlo Sevigny goes down

on Vincent Gallo for like five minutes.

- And they use his real penis.

[Chester] That's just pornography.

No, it's not. It's called acting.

If you wrote in a script

that I suck your dick for five minutes,

I would do it.

Why? Because you're paying me.

I wouldn't suck your dick for six minutes,

I wouldn't do it for four.

I would fucking full method it,

and just Daniel Day-Lewis your penis

in my mouth for five minutes.

Does that make me gay? No.

Just makes me, like, a really good actor.

Okay, in this situation, why am I

the one paying you to suck my dick?

- Would you rather suck my dick?

- I don't wanna suck anyone's dick.

You shouldn't have written it

in the script.

[cell phone ringing]

Danny, I know what you'll say. It's okay.

I'll get you your money. Don't worry.

What? Why 800?

[cell phone ringing and buzzing]

I don't know what

you're talking about, man.

F*ck it, call the cops.

I don't give a shit anymore.

It's all you. Goodbye.

- What happened?

- I am so screwed.

"I'm so screwed. Feel bad for me."

You're such a drama queen sometimes.

Oh, shit!

- Brake, brake, brake!

- Brake! [Screaming]

[Chester] Uh-huh. It's about 70,000 miles,

but it's... It's in great shape.

Mm-hm. Oh. Oh, yeah, yeah.

The trunk has an automatic latch,

in the front.

Yeah, and the trunk is super spacious.

It's really big, like a living room.

Could fit a love seat.


No, no, not really, no.

I'll see you there, Carlo. Thank you.


Uh-huh. Okay. Okay, bye.


[woman over recording]

Welcome to The Travel Linguist.

This is Portuguese 101.

In this lesson,

you will learn common greetings.

The word for "hello" is oi.

The word for "please" is por favor.

[car horn honks]

[car horn honking]

[woman over recording

speaking in Portuguese]

[speaks in Portuguese]

[in English] That's right.

Don't forget to roll the R's.

[continues speaking in Portuguese]

- The word for "thank you" is obrigado.

- Let's go!

Start the car! Let's go!

[engine starts]

Cool. Hey, don't slam the door.

Don't slam the...


What the f*ck are you listening to?

- [Chester] I'm learning Portuguese.

- I gotta change this.

- What's wrong with this?

- No.

Why isn't this working?

Can we not with the merchandise?

This is a vintage automobile.

It needs to be treated with kid gloves.

All right? And when did you start smoking?

What? I needed to change things up, okay?

It was either this or Scientology.

And I can't wear maritime-style uniforms.

It makes my face look fat.

Well, I just sold this car,

so, let's take care of it, and no smoking.

Can you cover my register for 30 minutes?

I need to meet this guy at 10:30.

What guy?

Carlo. The guy from Craigslist.

He called me this morning.

He wants to buy the car.

This guy has an amazing story.

He just moved to this country...

- You sold your car without consulting me?

- Are you even listening to me?

- That's pretty selfish.

- Can you cover my register?

If you sell your car,

how do we get to Rock the Bells?

I can't go to a concert.

I just told you I'm gonna meet Carlo.

Then I'll work a double. Go home.

- Pack. That's my night. I'm booked up.

- You know what I did to get these tickets?

I'm not going to a concert

with your brother's fake tickets.

Sell 'em

and get your car out of the impound, man.

- Grow up. Get a life.

- Okay.

And what are you packing for, huh?

Brazil. I'm going to Brazil.
