05x18 - Cash In Cash Out

Post by bunniefuu »


♪ Oh, been tryin' to let it go ♪

♪ Tryin' to keep my eyes closed ♪

Just turned in my last paper,

which means Andre Johnson
Junior is no longer a freshman.

I've only got a couple
days left on campus.

Gotta make them count.

♪ Got me thinking just too much ♪

Okay, so the last three weeks in
L.A. have been pretty perfect.

Only two days left

before I'm back on my grind
in the city that never sleeps.

And I want to make the
most of my time left.

So with the clock running down,

me and my crew have got to turn up.

And all I want to do is
turn down with my man.

We're gonna get takeout,
spend late mornings in bed,

oh, and watch a marathon
of "Blind, Drunk Love."


Oh, my God. Wow.

You only get this many notifications

if someone's d*ed or
you've won an award.

Maybe I've won an award.

This may be the last chance
for me to hang with my crew,

but luckily, I still get
to spend some quality time

with my girl, Grace, before
she goes away for the summer.

♪ It's this one thing
that got me trippin ♪

♪ It's this one thing
that got me trippin ♪

Is everything okay?

Hi. Hey, Morgan, I got
your missed calls,

but I saw your three
texts. What's up?

We need to talk.


What do you mean our
biggest investor pulled out?

This isn't working.

- You can't be serious.
- You can't be serious.

Um, uh, where does this leave Anti-Muse?

That doesn't make sense.
I thought we were happy.

How could they just walk
away from the company

and leave me hanging?

I'm really sorry, Andre.

- Oh, my God.
- Oh, my God.

- It's over?
- It's over?

♪ Watch out, world, I'm grown now ♪

♪ I'm grown ♪

♪ Learn something new every day ♪

♪ I don't know, so I'mma feel my way ♪

♪ Got the weight of the world on me ♪

♪ But no regrets, this is what I say ♪

♪ Watch out, world, I'm grown now ♪

♪ I'm grown ♪
♪ You can tell me ♪

♪ My heart b*ating so loud ♪

♪ Mama, look, I'm grown now ♪

♪ I'm grown ♪


Okay, so, no big deal.

Just lost my investor, and
everything is falling apart.

Aah. When I say it out loud,

it really sounds like a big deal.

All right, I just have
to come up with something.

Think, Zoey, think.

Use your mind. Use
your mind. Think. Think.

- Think. Think. Think. Think...
- Baby? Baby. Hey.

- Hi.
- I understand

that you're stressed out
right now. I get that.

But maybe you just need to take a b*at,

you know what I mean? Just
slow down for a second.

I can get you some
food. Make you something.

Babe, it's just not time
for a breakfast burrito.

Them breakfast burritos
is slapping, though.

So, not hungry.

Uh, maybe you pivot.

You find a new investor. You restart.

Just wish it was that simple.

But any firm that would back us
is gonna be totally scared off

by the fact that we just got
dropped by our biggest investor.

And, not to mention, I inherited
so much company debt from Luca.

We almost... I don't
know where to start.

- I don't know what to do.
- We don't say Luca in this house.

Zo, you... you fix it.

Because that's what you do.

Play chess, not checkers.

This is a marathon, not a sprint.

You're not a businessman,
you're a business, man.

- Mm-hmm.
- Or woman,

but you know what I'm saying.

I know what you're saying.

- Big Zo-Zo.
- Mm-hmm.

- They don't know you.
- They don't know me.

- So what you gonna do?
- I'mma tell 'em, right?

I'mma put my boss boots
on. I'mma punch the clock.

- I'mma get to work!
- So go out!

- Let's do it!
- Yeah!

I do need higher heels, though, first.


Yeah, you go do that.


I am not gonna lie. Who eats this?

Gamma Last Chance invites are here.

- All right.
- One for you.

Thank you.

One for you.

Aww, it's finally paying off
to be a WAG. Thanks, babe.

And you.

You have given me a lot
of side eye recently,

and I just am not sure
that you deserve one.

What are you willing to do for it?

I won't tell anyone you voted for Kanye.

One for you.

The Last Chance Party is
my favorite event. You know,

it's the last time you're
gonna see everyone till fall,

so it's just bro after bro
swinging for the fences.

Like, last year, this
guy invited me to Mykonos.

Literally no idea who he was.

Great trip, though.

- Wow.
- Mm.


Whoa. You okay?


Grace and I broke up.


Oof, first casualty of the summer.


- Bruh.
- Oh. Uh, I... I mean,

I'm sorry, bud.

Did she at least give you a reason?

That's the crazy part.

She said it was because
Annika and I are too close.

[SIGHS] Yeah, that... that tracks.


- Yeah.
- What?

Annika and I are just good friends.

- Good friends.
- Yeah.

Mm-hmm. Who text nonstop every day

- and also all night.
- Yeah.

Yeah, like, have you seen
the two of you together?

It's like everyone else
in the room doesn't exist.

It's actually really cute.

Guys, it is not like that.

We are friends. And
besides, she has a man.

And I like Kwame, who is also my friend.

I like it. You know, get close to him,

gain his trust, and then
s*ab him in the back.

Who da Brutus? You da Brutus.

Oh, my God. I would never.

I mean, you also said you
would never go to a naked party

or do shrooms, but somehow this
is the line you won't cross?

Y'all know me, and that is
not something I would ever do.



So, getting dumped wasn't the
perfect end to the semester,

but, hey, maybe I'll get
into pottery or poetry

or, I don't know,
whatever people get into

at the start of their Sad Boy Summers.

Andre, we heard about the breakup.

[SIGHS] Yeah, man. Bring it in.

Really appreciate it, man.

Aww. Look at you two.

My BF and my BFF.

Well, I got some good news.

I didn't want to say anything
until I knew you were okay,

but... I got into Influencer Island.

Oh, my God. That's amazing!

I have no idea what that is.

It's basically a bunch of influencers

living in a house in Chicago
while they put out content.

- Got it. Okay.
- But it is amazing.

Yeah, and the best part about it

is that me and Kwame get to
spend the summer together.


Really? You two? All summer?

Yeah. Remember? I have
that internship in Chicago.

So we thought we'd drive out together.


Mm-hmm. And we're gonna take Route

and see the Grand Canyon.

- Nice.
- You have to come visit us.

We're gonna have the best summer.


I'll see you at the
party, though, right?

Of course. Wouldn't
miss it for the world.

- Okay.
- All right, y'all.

You two have fun.

[WHISPERING] Be strong.


I am happy for them.

know, two of my friends

getting to spend a
magical summer together,

one, a great guy

who I'm inviting to my
Fantasy Football league,

and the other, a gorgeous, stunning,

effervescent dream girl

who's about to have a summer of sex

with someone who isn't me.

Grace was right.

I am crushing on Annika.


I got news.

Finally got invited to the cookout?


I still think that I
have feelings for Annika.

[CHUCKLES] That's not news.

Why you worked up now?

Because now she's headed off

to get freaking Route 'd
by Kwame all summer long.

Don't get me wrong. Kwame is my guy.

Look, bro, Kwame is really
just some guy in the way.

And if he spends the summer
with Annika, you're done.

I mean, he becomes her college boyfriend

and not just some dude
she dated her first year.

I know, I know, but I just...
I don't want to be a bad guy.

I mean, you know where
nice guys finish, so...

And if you're looking
for some kind of sign...

Huh. Yeah, that is pretty clear.

Yeah. Really is.


Okay, Zo-Zo, you're ready.

I really am.

All I had to do was cash in every favor,

chip, marker I have ever accumulated.

But I did land a meeting
with an angel investor

who's like one chair away
from being on "Shark t*nk."

They're in the business
of making dreams come true.

♪ Yeah, yeah, get the money,
get the, get the money ♪

What is Anti-Muse?

Anti-Muse is the story of my life

told through fashion,
style, and culture.

It's not "who are you wearing,"
it's "what are you saying?"

And as you can see, if
sales increase as projected,

then we predict financial stability

in just two years and
profitability in three years.

But this isn't just about my dream.

It's about kicking the door wide open

for so many people
that are just like me.

And your funding of Anti-Muse

means keeping hundreds of workers

and international artisans employed

in fair, well-paying jobs.

Because we're not just
trying to change a culture,

we want to change an industry.

Well done.

Thank you.

Very inspiring.

I'm just so happy that
you see the vision.

[CHUCKLES] I really do.

But unfortunately, Zoey,
we're not in the position

to make this kind of
financial commitment right now.

Sorry, love.

- Hey.

KWAME: Andre.

Yo, what's up, bro?

So glad you made it
out tonight, brother.

Thank you, man.

- You want a drink?
- Yes. Oh, my gosh.

I'll go grab you one.

So, we're coming to the end of the year.

But that's not where we started.

We started where else but the beginning?

Started from the
beginning, now we're here.

But you know when,
uh, people meet people,

and then people want to
say something to people,

and you kind of want to tell
people how you feel about...

Mm, did you get your
drink from the wrong jug?

Because I didn't think
this was that kind of frat.

No, it's... it's not
the drink, Annika. I...

I think what I'm trying to say is...



Why would you do that?

You know I have a boyfriend,
who will be back any minute.

Who I'm spending the summer with.

But you don't have to.

But I... [SIGHS]

I-I can't do this right now.

Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug!

- Hey, how'd it go?

They said the timing wasn't
right to make an investment.


I'm sorry, babe. I don't
know what I'm supposed to do.

Like, am I supposed to
start over with a new idea?


Get a job just to pay bills? I...

[SIGHS] I'm so overwhelmed right now.

Hey, hey, look, you don't have
to make a decision right now.

Okay, sure.

But how am I supposed to
get my life back on track

if I do nothing?

I'm not saying do
nothing, I'm just saying

do the "something" from here.

You're saying don't go back to New York?

Yes. Just stay here for a little bit.

- Clear your head, you know?
- No. No. No, no, no, no.


Absolutely not.

Because I can handle things in New York,

and I'm not running home like I failed.

No one's saying that you...

Look, I, um...

It was just an idea,
okay? It was a suggestion.

I'm just trying to be the
support that you need right now.

Just not the support I need.
Because what I need is money.

And what I need is to
get back to the city

to show people that this
didn't knock me down.

Oh, and in case you didn't
know, Zoey Johnson's got it.


I know you got it.

My boy, you go for it?
You sh**t your sh*t?

- Well, I...
- Wait, what'd you go for?

Oh, he... he likes Annika.

- Yeah, this isn't breaking news.
- Wait, so you talked to her?

Aww, you went and talked to her?

I tried, but the kiss kind of
said everything I wanted to.

Ohh, my dog!

- You know it!
- No. Bad dog.

KIELA: Okay, wait, wait,
wait. What happened to

"she has a boyfriend" and
"me and Kwame are boys"

and "I'm not that type of dude"?

I guess you are that type of dude.

I don't know, man. I just...

I feel like I made a mistake.
Annika doesn't seem happy.

And what if Kwame finds out?

We'll just make sure
he doesn't find out.

KWAME: Yo, Junior!

What the hell?

Too late.

You kissed my girl?

Yo, dude, I'm sorry. I can explain.

What are you gonna explain?

That you're a backstabbing little bitch?

Yo, dude, seriously, I am sorry.

You need to go home, man. Now.

- Go!
- Come on, babe.

Come on, babe. Let's go.




All things considered,
that could have gone worse.

Ohh! Ohh! Ohh! Ohh!

- Oh!
- Oh, sh**t!

Okay. You know what?

- Maybe he did deserve that.
- He did.

Still, we gotta [BLEEP] you up.

Nah, for real. Get his ass!


Come here!


- What did I just do?
- You got sucker punched by Van Jones.

What? He might have forgotten.

We don't know if he's concussed.

No, what did I kiss Annika for?

I messed everything up.

I risked our friendship. I
stabbed Kwame in the back.

I embarrassed myself
in front of the Gammas

and all of my friends, and for what?

All I feel is regret.

This could blow up our friend group.

I mean, how many of you guys think

that Annika is gonna want to
hang out with me after this?


Look, Andre, I don't
know what's next for us.

Except whatever it is, I
know we'll do it together.



Mm, honestly, I would ditch
you guys for a group of friends

that could get me into
Six Flags for free.

I'm kidding. We're all in this together.

Okay, guys, last Jenga game of the year.

- Who wants to go first?
- Let's get it.

All right, no cheating,
bruh. I'm watching your hands.

JUNIOR: When I started
at Cal U, I was told

I'd meet some of my
best friends in college.


And I have.





Hey, I need money. Are you
still in touch with Migos,

or have any of your high school friends

gotten rich off of crypt... Oh.


What the [BLEEP] happened to your face?

I would say you should
see the other guy, but...

Yeah, Johnsons can't throw hands.

Oh, listen, Andre, you
want to know about messy?

That's nothing.

In the movie of Aaron, Luca, and I,

that's a deleted scene, friend.

And, oh, if you want
to talk about drama,

I can't tell you how many times

we thought our friend group was done.


look, following your heart is messy.

I know, but I'm not a messy guy, Zoey.

Too bad.

'Cause love is messy, and it
doesn't make you a bad guy.

It just makes you human.

Yo, I'm sorry about your business.

Oh, right.

I feel like what hurts the most

is the fact that Anti-Muse
was taken away from me.

It's not gone. No. You just...
You're gonna figure it out,

and then you're just gonna start again.

Okay, well, what if I don't?

Honestly, I feel... I just...

Just what? Just what?

'Cause we're here for you, all right?

I've got your back.

And Aaron does, too.


It's okay to admit that you're scared.


I'm scared, too.





Look, I know you were trying to help.


The thing is, I realize that,

um, my whole identity
is tied up in my career.

And so when I am successful,

I feel really good.

Really good.

So now I just... I don't know.

It's not clicking, and...

I feel really worthless.

Man, come on.

I don't know what I'm doing.

[VOICE BREAKING] And I'm really scared.

I'm really scared.

It's okay.

Don't bring this.


I was all packed up
and ready to go, but...

I realized I forgot something.


Wow, man. Can't believe you
found a new place so quick.

Yeah, the landlord gave me a deal on it

Okay. Yeah.

Uh-huh. Just don't sit on the couch.
