Where you going? Come here.

Wait, wait, wait.

Sorry. You're right.

We barely know each other.

Maybe we should

have a drink and talk.

Actually... zipper just got

caught on my necklace.

But if you want to talk,

we can. Sure.

Okay, great.

Or we can talk after.



Come on!


Let me tag along for a drink.

You said I'd like it.

It's too soon.

Once you meet my dad

and I meet your friends,

they become a part of this...

...and I just want to stay in

our bubble a little longer.

It's been eight weeks.

You keeping track?

Happy Anniversary.

I saw it and...

...I thought of you.

Open it.

Good morning.

Why do I schedule

breakfast meetings?

For the bacon, I think.

But you need to

lay off that until

your cholesterol's down.

Why not turkey?

Screw turkey.

I like pig.

Well, I heard

a story on the news...

...about a guy who ate an

undercooked pork chop and... a worm that made his

brain swell up super fast.


And to relieve the pressure, they

had to cutout a chunk of his skull.

Oh, wow.

Like a triangle of his skull, they

cut it right out of his head...

...and they implanted it

in his groin... it wouldn't die.


his brain would have...

...his head

would have exploded.


The skull was

holding his brain...

...which was swelling, and his

head would have just exploded.

Just think of that

next time you eat pig bacon.

I will.

Here you go.

Thanks, sweetie.


He needs training.

I'm taking him to

obedience school today.

Oh! And we need a check

for the painter, too.

That reminds me, I need

you to sign these, honey.

What are they?

Oh, just some stuff

for the accountant.

I don't even understand this.

I can't even read these anymore.

I already read it for us.

You just have to sign.

No, I really

don't understand this.

I feel like I need

to go to brain camp.

Like, a brain camp.

Where they give you

exercises for your brain?

When people have lazy eyes...

...they get

their eyes worked out

so they don't

have to wear glasses.


They should have

that for your brain.

Like a brain camp.

You could go lay on

a beach and get tan

and drink gingko balboa all day.

You come back and

you're super smart.

It's gingko biloba.

Balboa was Rocky.

Right. See? See? That's why

I need to go to brain camp.

Any messages?

I don't think so. I've kind

of been in the zone here.

You weren't going

to mention these?

Why? They're the

first things you see.

Micromacks? I thought Dave Cohen

was handling this merger.

No. The client said

he was too emotional.

They wanted a ruthless

law robot, so...

I got Micromacks.

Get Dave on the phone. I need

all pertinent materials...

...and a set of

dates for deposition.

Why do you work so hard?

The point of being pretty

is that you don't have to.

You don't see me worrying

about my job, do you?

Unfortunately, no.

That's because I have a Stan, okay?

He works.

I come here because it's

like a hobby that pays well.

Oh, by the way,

your dad called... confirm that you and he were

still on for drinks with "Mark."

Who's Mark?

The guy I'm seeing.

Obviously, but which one?

The only one.

There's one guy?

And you're calling him Mark?

You never use their names!

So, Model Man Boy

and Dr. Not So Smart...?


The Hot Rabbi?

And the Hot Rabbi's Cousin?

Cut them loose.

You cleared the roster.

I cleared the bench.


You haven't dated

just one guy in a long time.

It's not a big deal.

It's very new.

No jinxies. I get it. It's good

that Mark doesn't have a nickname.
