It's done, mum.

We've made the selection and

it's ready for you.

The perfect edit.

"Pop Goes the Weasel"

This is so amazing, isn't it?

No, it's kind of creepy, honey.

No, just watch.

It's exactly like the kind I had

as a child,

and the lady, she didn't even

charge me for it.

She just gave it to me.

No, I'm sorry.

That's just weird.

It's not weirder than your doll

collection.

My vintage Barbies aren't

terrifying.

Ken sure is.

"Pop Goes the Weasel"

"Pop Goes the Weasel"

"Pop Goes the Weasel"

Tonight's the big night.

Everything needs to be perfect.

Are you sure this is a good

idea?

Whatever do you mean?

We've never exactly had guests.

Oh.

It's only been the three of us

as long as I can remember.

And the girls.

Of course the girls.

The girls.

You're not scared are you,

Neddy?

A little.

Oh.

And, Penny, you know it takes a

lot frighten me.

Well, don't worry.

Everything will be perfect.

I've waited my whole

non-existent life for this.

The excitement, the romance,

the magical power of true love's

first kiss.

Oh, it'll be tremendous,

stupendous,

spontaneously wonderful.

Penny,

might ask you, where exactly

did you find this gentleman?

The Internet.

You can find almost anything on

the internet.

Come on.

Mum,

what if our guests just don't

respond well to us?

Well, fiddle-dee-dee.

What's not to love?

Come on, help me get ready.

What if they suspect that we's

different,

that we's not normal?

Ah, whew.

Look if he causes any trouble

and he's not

the one then well, we'll just

handle it.

By handle it do you mean

politely ask him to leave?

No we slit his throat and chop

him

into a million pieces and throw

him

into the incinerator.

Very good, mum.

How do I look?

You look...

you look...

Oh, he's here!

Bugger.

Yello?

Hello.

You must be Rex.

Yeah that's me.

I'm Penny.

Welcome to my...

Great! You wanna go grab a taco

or a drink or something?

No silly, we're in a movie

theater,

we're gonna watch a movie.

A scary one.

Now we all have to be on our

very best behavior.

Tonight we have a special guest.

Judith?

No slouching.

That's better.

Ok that's a little strange.

No talking during the movie.

Shh.

Popcorn?

Sure.

Actually I'm good.

Hey you know what? Why don't...

Shhh, it's starting.

Oh God.

It's fine.

Whatever happened last night,

it's fine.

We made it home all in one

piece.

Mostly.

Oh God.

I ordered the chocolate glaze,

you can have the one with

sprinkles.

Are you telling me

there's only one chocolate

doughnut?

No! Wait! There's...

one with chocolate glaze.

And two with chocolate doughnut

and chocolate glaze.

Does a doughnut with only

chocolate glaze

count as a chocolate doughnut?

I don't know but gimmie it.

Nothing happened.

I swear.

Just...

one innocent flirtation that's

it.

Can we at least talk about it?

Alice please.

Charlie don't.

What do you want me to say?

I'm not a mind reader.

Well great, this is just great.

So we're just gonna sit out here

all night, huh?

Let's just go inside.

We'll have a good time,

then we can work this all out in

the morning.

Come on.

Yeah, then everything will be

fine right?

It's weird, I'm not...

I'm not even jealous or angry.

I'm just...

I'm just numb.

I've been meaning to do this

for awhile now...

I just never found the right

time.

Would you...

Alice...

you just... just put it on.

I'm, I'm sorry Charlie.

I can't do this.

What? Isn't this what you want

from me?

What more can I do for you?

Charlie you're drunk and you're

confused

but this isn't a solution to any
