What do you think

your dreams mean, Jackson?

They're about relationships,


Do you think a commitment

with a woman is death?

Yeah, right. See,

you meet somebody, right?

You are having a good time,

vibing together...

...then love drags its ass up into it.

- What do women want from you?

- That's easy.

They want money, multiple orgasms...

...and beautiful shoes

that don't hurt like hell.

That's really sexist.

Except for the part about the shoes.

I'll be 29 on my next birthday.

- Why does that bother you?

- It's one step from the big 3-0.

I can't keep blaming my lack of

a relationship on being a kid anymore.

I broke up with three women

in the last two months.

Maybe you should become celibate.

Put the physical behind

your spiritual self.

Sorry, doc, but my spiritual self

needs a booty.

I have an assignment for you.

I want you to get out there

and date some more.

In fact, try to meet a woman tonight.

I'm shooting hoops with the fellas.

Then we hang.

It's a weekly tradition.

Then do it whenever.

The next time, open up

your heart to her.

Try being a friend,

before you become her lover.

I can handle that.

Motion to suppress, denied.

Motion for evidentiary hearing,


Motion for continuance, denied.

All of my motions denied?

May I ask why?

Your affidavit wasn't based

on credible facts.

This court will not tolerate that.

Motions denied.

Thank you, Your Honour.

- B*tch.

- What did you say?

Come on, Shawshank, let's go.

The judge is springing you.

It's about goddamn time.

That woman is crazy.

Come on. You're lucky you ain't

working for her cranky ass.

Yes, Sheila, I am meeting the brothers

after work for our game.

Yes, we are going

to the club afterwards.

Now, how is my baby gonna miss me

when she's gonna be asleep?

What if I ran the streets?

I have a job too.

You shouldn't talk like that.

You need Jesus.

The European earnings report

just came in.

Lovely. I'll look at them tonight.

Is there anything else

I can do for you?

- No, Sandra, thank you. I'm straight.

- Nothing?

- No, I'm straight.

- Nothing at all?

I'm cool. I'm cool.

Take care of yourself, okay?

Yes, Terry White.

Hey, baby. Yeah, I'm packing up

right now to get out of here.

Yeah, it's all set for tonight.

Baby, you got nothing to worry about...

Oh, sh*t. Baby, I gotta go.

She's gonna need to take her medicine

and keep her throat warm.

Thanks. So, doctor, would

you like to meet my sister?

She's really great.

I'm kind of off the market right now.

Hey! You ain't got time for me now?

You had time when you wanted to have

sex with me, but now you're busy.

Yo, Derrick,

I did not think you saw me.

I do what I can, baby.

- That was luck.

- It won't happen again.

You want to hear

what happened to me today?

I'm packing up my stuff.

I turn around and a temp's

in front of me.

I'm not gonna lie. She was banging.

This girl jumps on my sh*t, man.

I think you're lying!

Hey, D. How long you known me, baby?

I don't lie about my sh*t.

That sh*t always happens to me.

How was it, Terry?

- I didn't do it.

- Sh*t.

What, you A.C. Green now?

I lectured her about compromising

a brother at work...

...then I left.

I would've waxed that ass

all over the office.

There would've been X eroxes

of my nuts on everybody's desk.

You see the problem is,

you need help, bro.

Me and my girl, BeBe,

got something solid.

I'll make a declaration

right here, right now.

From this moment forward,

I'm a one-woman man.

After two months of dating? That's

gotta be a record for being whipped.
