Jane, it's me. Open up.

Did you tell anyone?

Did i...

About the name. The name.

Yeah, I told Rick.

He thought it was funny.

Just Rick and nobody else?

No. Why?

What's the matter?

Larry, what's wrong?

I'm sorry.

You have no idea how sorry I am.

Larry, you're scaring me.

What are you doing?



Rick, the name.


Did you tell anyone?


Lar... Larry, please.

Please. I...

Rick, he's coming!

The name.

Gi... Giselle.

I to...

I told Giselle.

I'm gonna stop you!


- Larry!

- Mom! Run!

- Who did you tell?

- He killed them!

Don't think it.

Mom, come on!

Don't say it.

Don't think it.

Don't say it.

Don't think it.

Don't say it.

Don't think it.

Don't say it.

Don't think it.

Don't say it.

Don't think it.

Don't say it.


Did you say the name?

Don't think it.

Don't say it.

Don't say it.

Who did you say

the name to, Giselle?



What's up, playboy?

How's it going?


Today is a good day.

You got the key? No,

it's under the mat.


It's only 20 minutes.

This is the first time he's rented the

place. The guy says it's fantastic.

What else would he say?

It's a doghouse?

I'm trying to convince her. Come on, man.

Work with me.

Sash? Yeah. I'm up for it.

It's a little creepy.


Nah, it's just cold.

Heat's off.

I gotta piss like a racehorse.



This place is sweet, bro.



We could put the desk

over there.

We could put the bed here.

Well, maybe if there was a bed.

I know. The landlord said

it was fully furnished.

Yo, El, come and check this out, man.

This is crazy!

Yo, come on down.

Yo, El, come in here, man.

Oh, it's... you can't get

this in the dorms, right?

Now, that's...

That's classic. John, you really

think Sasha wants to see that?

Or that?


You got the whole upstairs

to make girlie. Okay?

I've definitely seen bigger.


You're awesome.


She's awesome, man.

Oh, yeah, you guys must've been

hilarious when you were young.

Must've been? Are.

Tier 1.

Hey, he made me look smart,

and I made him look ugly.

But after the crash,

he took care of me.

Talk sh*t about my boy's

folks, you're done.

Okay, and the tier 1's

are both ready to cook and clean and

help me do this place up, right?

'Cause I'm not gonna be

your guys' maid.

Of course not.

I told him. Right?

I never cooked you

my butter pasta-nette?

That is not a thing.

- That's 'cause I invented it.

- Okay.

And I clean too. I promise.

- Yo, what does this do?

- Yeah, you cook.

I said I "cooked," okay?

Found the furniture.

I've heard about you

and all the girls.

And that's exactly why we need

to get out of the dorms.

And this is perfect.

Whoa! Easy.


You all right?

Yeah. Thanks.

So it looks like

the landlord wasn't lying.


Damn, son.

Hey, I like this.

Ah, f***.


Don't you want to?

Well, yeah, yeah. I do.

Now, I know you...

Yo, all the dishes

in here, they're white.

Just saying.

He touches everything.

It's up to you, bear.

I can't afford it without him.

I know you can, but I don't

want... Elliot. Elliot.


We're doing it.




I see she approves, huh?


Hey, you need a hand?

No, I got this.

Okay, don't break yourself.

Better than going

to the gym, right?

Hey, Elliot?


Hey, did you hear that banging?


The radiators sound worse.

Okay, bear, here it is.

Rilke says coins symbolize the

wonder and terror of fortune.

"Do you land face up

or face down in the dirt?

What home will you be born into?

With whom will you fall in love?

Fortune is truly like a coin

tossed by the hand of god."

I'm wiped.


Thanks for finding me

that quote.

You wanna watch

something stupid?


Just us. Yeah.

I'm gonna brush my teeth.

Hey, what's on the bed?

"You look like a model

from the '70s.

The personal pilot

of a James Bond villain.

A 19-year-old

koala bear person."

"If any of them were true,

I wouldn't have you.

But they're not, and I do.


Bullshit aside,

I never thought I would meet,

let alone be with,

anyone like you.

With so much love,

your knight, Beau,


and new roommate, Elliot."

"No animals were harmed

in the making of this card."

Hey, Elliot, that's not funny.



What's wrong?


What's up, man?

Ah, little brother!

How's it going? Look at this place.


Hi, darlin'.

Hi, uncle Elliot!

- Hey, niece Alice!

- Hey, hey.

Hey there.

Sorry we're so early.

Your brother's pathological.

It's called being prompt

and professional.

Virgil's awesome.

Thank you.

Oh, hey.

Almost forgot.

Here's your

housewarming present.

- You gonna help me drink it?

- No!

Look at this.

So a house off campus

with John Henry

and a live-in girlfriend.

You ready for this?

She's the one, Virgil.

She did all this herself.

That's great. It's just,

you know, be smart.

Be a student, man.

It's the last time to have no

responsibilities. Enjoy it.

I don't want that.

I want what you have.

An amazing wife,

an amazing daughter.

Just don't rush it.

That's all out there waiting for you.

Believe me, what I have is great.

It is. But I missed

out on all this.

I mean, what a college edu-ma-cation

could have done for me.

You have a scholarship, man. You

should be upstairs studying right now.

Jesus. It's a good thing

you're not jealous.

It is good.

You got this. You got this.

Come on, come on.

All right.

This one side.

- Oh!

- Oh, baby!

Thank you!

An oldie old gold coin, huh?

Yeah. I put it back on the

little table next to the bed.

I didn't want to keep it.

'Cause you're the best,

most honest, smartest, cutest,

heaviest, oldest person here.

I'm not the heaviest

or the oldest.

Dad's the oldest

and he's the heaviest.


She ratted me out.


Head bump. Oh.

Fist bump.

That's John's room.

We're upstairs.

All right, we're outta here.

Buddy, great party.

Be good.

Bye, guys.

Bye, Alice.

Kim? She's in

my lit class.

Girls who wear hats inside

are crazy.

You know that, right? She's gonna do a

psychic cleansing after everyone leaves.

Cool. Can I leave too?


She's just gonna burn some Sage,

and you are going to be nice.

Maybe you need a hat.

It's a twist-off.

Oh, thank you.

John, do you think

this house is creepy?



I don't, but I'm not a girl,

and I think you should get dressed,

'cause we're playing baseball.

Why do jocks always have to

play games, even at a party?

"Don't think it.

Don't say it.

Don't think it. Don't say it.

Don't think it.

Don't say it.

Don't think it. Don't say it.

Don't say it. Don't think it."

Miss Sasha

steps up to the plate!

Oh, she's going long.

She's going long.

Okay, all right, all right.

You got this?

All right.

- Oh!

- F*** yes!


You all right?


You're drunk.

She's so drunk.


So you thought there

were sounds and... what?

Bad vibrations?


And now if they're gone,
