Come on!

Oh, Bridget...


Look what I found.

Let's see.

Come and get your 40, Bridget.

Welcome home.



[Siren wailing in distance]

That's where I set up my account.

You can set one up there.


And then there's a really cute

grocery store down there,

so that's where I shop.

What's wrong?



Nothing. I swear.

It just doesn't look like the New York

that you see in movies, you know?

Come on! It's totally charming.




Hey... How 'bout we go over there?


Between two of them -

that's perfect.

Who would you rather f*** -

Aretha Franklin or Wynonna Judd?


Wynonna Judd or Kirstie Alley?

Ugh... Alley.

Uh... Oprah or Gayle?

- Oprah.

- Bridget.


Damn. 10.

Definitely a 10.

That girl? She's a 4.

You're crazy.

Bridget's a 10.

Didn't you say you had

work or something?

I got to get ready.

All right, this is one of the ones

from last Thursday.

Last Thursday? What?

This girl's like a retard, Bridge.

Where do you meet these girls?

Another restaurant on Bleecker.

That wipes out the entire village for you.

I know.

That's really good, Bridge.

Stupidest girl I've ever met.

She is so clingy,

and boring...

And dumb.

Ooh. 9.

She's a 4.

Oh, my God.

She is not.

Oh, God.

Bye, guys.

Amy, before you leave,

who would you rather f*** -

your mom or your dad?

Oh, my dad.

Okay, how about you wait

for me outside on that one?

- Okay.

- Okay.

- Bye, Amy.

- Oh, cute. Bye.


- Thank you.

- I got your back.

You always do.

But never have I ever

drank that much rum.

All right, wish me luck.


Does this place

not remind you of Joe's?

On Temple Street.

Yeah, in downtown Westport.

- It's great.

- I told you.

Are you gonna

have another one?


Do you remember the time...

This girl keeps looking at me.

I totally know him.

- I like your shirt.

- Is she still looking?


Aren't you the only guy in my...

Girl-writer book class.

...female authors of the 19th century?

I am literally

the only guy in that class.

Why are you in that class?

Bridget made me.

- Is that your major?

- No. Statistics.

- You?

- I finished last fall.

He's studying for the LSATs.

That's like a lawyer, right?

That's... amazing.

She's a ballerina.

Modern-dance major, uptown.

Don't you just hate her?

Her? No.

God, no. Sorry.

Um, Anderson, our professor.

Oh, yeah.

She's a big old douche bag.

Where you guys from?

New Jersey.

- You a Giants fan?

- Hells yeah.

My dad's company

has box seats.

No sh*t.

- It's a douche nozzle.

- What?

Not a douche bag.

It's a douche nozzle.

It's just being more accurate.

- You're so smart.

- I am.

Girls are so offensive!

- Thursday gone?

- Yeah.

Hey, do yous

want to come sit down?


Aren't you in...

- Girl-writer book class.

- Female authors of the 19th century.

Okay, um, never have I ever...

wiped my ass with leaves.

It's disgusting.

You lick ass.

Thank you.


You're up, sunshine.

Oh, I, uh...

It's "Never Have I Ever."

If you've done it,

you drink.

If you haven't, you wait.


Never have I ever, uh...

...locked myself out.


Oh, my God.

Um, never have I ever...

kissed a girl.

Oh. It's not too bad.

It was a dare.

It's, like, hot.

- You jealous?

- Always.

All right, I got to pee.

All right, never...

Never have I ever

been to the Four-Faced Liar.

So you're not good at this.

Why is it called that?

Oh, uh...

It's named after a clock tower

She earned the Maverick Award from the Los Angeles Women's Theatre Festival in 2016.In an interview, she described her interest in writing as stemming from her time at NYU. She and her friends figured that "you have to make your own work." And so she wrote her first script for them to workshop as actors. As for her thematic interests, she recounts what happened after The Four-Faced Liar got released: "I had the opportunity to go into meetings with crazy big people. The one question that came up repeatedly was 'what kind of work do you want to do for the rest of your life?' The first time someone asked me that, I answered it so truthfully that I shocked myself. I said, 'I just want to write dark comedies for women that don't ostracize a male audience.'"Ryan wrote and directed the film 6 Balloons, released in March 2018, and is drafting the reboot of Splash starring Channing Tatum and Jillian Bell. She has been tapped to spearhead the sequel to The L Word, currently in development at Showtime, as executive producer and showrunner. more…
