[train chugging]

I really can't.

You think

I'm gonna accept that?

You're a real pig,

you know that?

[woman] Just go!

Come on.

Do it!

What is wrong with you? Go!

Just go.

Do it!

Come on!

Do it. Go!

Just go!

Do it!

[guitar music playing]

She sticks right to his heart

Like marmalade

Says it twice

But he can't catch her name

Warm environment

On the first date

Next he hears she lives

In a different place

She feels like

The sunny sun

Cold as the winter shade

But the animal zone

Ought to stay away

[woman] Move, my friend!

Are you talking to me?

You need to move!

[shrieks] Oh, shit!

Told you to move, didn't I?

Tide's coming in.

Didn't know I could

make it here.

You know, most people dress

a little more beach-y

if they're gonna stand

right by the ocean.

Just saying.

Well, the truth, lady,

is I came out here

trying to get

a better cell signal.

And to take in

all this beauty.

Excuse me?

You came to take in

all this beauty

because you wouldn't come

to a place like this

and still only care

about a cell signal.

Yeah, I'm just not a...

a big fan of the ocean.

Why not?

Kind of personal reasons.


Would you happen to know

where I could get

a cell phone charger

around here?

Ah, you could try Ouzo Electronics

on Main, but it closes at 5:30.

What, 5:

Yeah, it's off-season.

Everything's shut

except for the ice cream shop.

You're in the wilderness now.

Yeah, tell me about it.

I haven't seen you

around before.

Ah, I'm just staying at a

friend's place for the weekend.

And is this friend


[chuckles] Excuse me?

What does that mean?

Maybe you're one

of those guys

that seduces the rich old

ladies for their summer homes.

I seem like the type?

Maybe. Not sure yet.

You pegged me.

You know, although

ladies can't resist me,

and my wet pants.

No, she's totally


And she's just a friend.

She's, in fact,

an acquaintance, really.

I don't... I don't even

know her, actually.

You know, this is

the longest conversation

I've had with anyone

face-to-face in weeks.

Going to a party later.

You should come.

I don't think

I was invited.

I think you just were.

It's your party?

I know the person throwing it.

I could put you

on the guest list.

I don't know.

Guest lists, they kinda

stress me out.

Plus, I just, you know,

I came out just to get away.

I was gonna get back

and decompose.

"Decompose"? Really?


I mean, decompress.

Plus, she's got a cat

that I gotta look out for.


It's not my cat.

It's hers.

Join me for a swim at least?

What, now?

I better get to the store

before it closes.

You know...

Isn't it a little cold,

this time of year?




So bitter and so sweet

Like marmalade

Run down in your teeth

Like marmalade

Sophisticated and simple

Like marmalade

She sticks right to his heart

Like marmalade

[engine sputtering]

[engine starts]


[engine stalling]


You're kidding me.

[engine stalling]


Oh! Hey! Excuse me!

I got a...

Hey, schmuck!
