Synopsis: Piper moves to Santa Cruz, California to go to the Institute of Art. When she was 15 she gave birth to a daughter, but had to put her up for adoption because she was too young to raise her. Years later she sees an article about a girl she thinks is her daughter, who lives in Santa Cruz, and applies for a job in a sandwich shop. As she works there she gets to know the staff. Tish is a babe, she tries to seduce every guy who comes into the shop, and she goes home with those who flirt back. Jen, a computer nerd who has a love affair online with a guy who calls himself fuzzy22. She's not as pretty as Tish and she struggles with self-confidence. And there's a crazy haired guy called Priestly; he's not like other guys and dresses different then everyone because he refuses to be "another clone". Piper's boss is a really nice guy named Trucker, who's in love with a woman who owns the store across the street.

No, man...don't come in the morning,

I won't be here until two...

...'cause that's when the morning's swell

finally flattens out, you dig?

All right...just bring it on the back then.

Cool. Peace.

I'm not normal.


I need a job.

It's yours.

Hang on, Trucker. You said hiring

was a democratic process around here.

Yeah, that's the way I heard it.

Okay...all those in favor of hiring...


...Piper, put your hands up.

Thank you, Jen.

Hey, what about an interview?

Oh, that's fine.

Okay, I...lemme think...

Elvis. Dead or alive?


Andy Kauffman?


Jerry Garcia?

Grateful. And dead.

Mariah Carey?

Are we talkin' about her acting career, or...?


Okay. Then...alive..

Why did you come to Santa Cruz?

I...have family here.

Are you a virgin?

Mr. Julius!

No. But I used to be.

You're not a witch, by any chance?

Is that a job requirement?

Trucker's blazin' for the woman who runs the

crystal store across the street.

He thinks she's wiccan.

Yeah, they're soulmates, except she's

not exactly aware of that yet.

Okay everybody, time to vote.

Okay, time for a lil' homework.

Then can we go to the art store?

Everybody relax!

I'm here.

Oh, and so close to almost on time.

C'mon, if I was to start always on time,

you'd expect it everyday.

He works here?

Well...he's employed here.

What's up?

Don't pay attention to him.

Okay, today's topic of conversation: clueless men

and the women who use them for gratification.

Who are you?


Piper...what are you doing here, Piper?

I...work here.

Why wasn't I notified?

I wasn't notified!

Hey, Priestly! We hired someone.

Thank you.

I swear, we need like a bulletin board or staff e-mail or somethin'...

You know, Priestly? Piper

thinks Elvis is dead.


And now you hire people who failed the interview?

C'mon, man!

I don't know. I mean, you're cute and everything, but...

But what? C'mon, Tish.

- It's just...

- There it comes!

- I don't really like sex.

- What?!

- How can you not like-

- I've never had a...

...you know?

Woo! Never?

Huh...well, obviously you haven't been with the right guy.

...my God...does that really work?

Every time.

Are you kiddin' me? It's man's greatest challenge.

Tish is the scorpion queen.

See ya tonite!

Well...'nother comrade used and discarded...huh, Tish?

You know, I gotta be honest with you, Tish,

I've never been really comfortable watching you doing that to men...

...when there it should be some sort of a warning sign posted...

If men are that easy to manipulate,

they deserve to be taken advantage of.

I'm easy to manipulate.

Why don't women take advantage of me?

I think we can all guess the answer to that.

Is that the crystal lady?

Oh yeah, that's Zo.


Yeah, it's short for Zoheret.

It means "she shines" in hebrew.

You see? She knows things.

She seems nice, Trucker.

So, I'll...give you a call later?

Yeah, huh...sure.

Oh, look! She can still walk.

All right, let's hear it, what were his grades?

"A" for effort, "C" for execution.

Natural gift?

Didn't even register.

That bad, huh?

That bad, and...he knows it.

You know...did you at least tell him that size doesn't matter?

Yeah, sure, I told him.

You don't actually think guys believe that, do you?

Hey Piper, what's in that case?

Oh...that's just my art stuff.

Are you an artist?

Oh, that's cool! Do you paint, like, controversial sh*t?

Like, people pissin' on the Pope or somethin'?

- No!

- That's not even controversial anymore.

Then what the hell is it?

Well, that's like that, you know..."politically correct controversialism".
