Do you think i would

Oh, i would hope not.


Let's have another drink.

Um... i don't know.

How do you play this?

I don't know this game.

I don't know any drinking games.

So, i say, like,

"i've never been to China,"

and if either of us

So... hmm?

I think i've got to go.


Nobody's stopping you.


Um... i saw a condom

in your wastebasket,

and it kind of freaked me out, so...

i think it might be best

if i just leave... now.

I have a roommate, you know.

That's your roommate's condom?

Well, her boyfriend's in town.

She's not here right now,

I just want to...

I want to make sure

everything was okay.


All right, so...

I mean, everything's cool?

Everything is good.

'Cause, you know,

i know that we didn't use a condom

last night,

so i didn't...

I need more sleepy time.


Well, just remember to take your
