delivering richly-deserved comeuppance

refusing to pay

keeping tools

Hello, Danielle.
Is Erica home?


ERICA: Who is it?

DANIELLE: It's Rand.

Kind of.

ERICA: Rand?

Rand, what are you doing?

Erica, I have
a question for you.


Will you...

Jesus, Rand.
DANIELLE: Oh, sh*t.

Do me the honor, please...

What the f*ck are you doing?
I don't know--

Of making me the happiest...

Plumber in the area code?

Oh, God.

- I gotcha.
- You found it.

Of course I found it.
I found it.

I scared the sh*t out of you.
- Thanks, Rand, yeah.

- That was a good one, huh?
- It was funny.

I'm not crazy.
I don't need to ask you

to marry me, also,
'cause we're already married.

Well, yeah,
just 'cause you need to pay

the grand to get
a divorce.

It's grand, so ha-ha.

And also, just 'cause
we're not together

doesn't mean we can't go
out to dinner.

- Well...
- Dinner?

I want to take you
out to dinner as a thank-you.

As a thank-you for what?

For your toilet overflowing.

It actually sent me
on the righteous path

that I'm currently walking.

And what path is that?

Well, I could tell you,

and I would love to,

um, but right after I do,
I would I have to k*ll her,

'cause I don't trust her
with this information.

Highly sensitive.

No one will miss her, though.
I'm cool with it.

Honestly, what do you say?

- Sure.

[refined piano music

Is this really your treat?

The world is your oyster,


So are you gonna tell me
what this is about?

RAND: My glorious path?

- No?

I'm dying to, but it just
wouldn't be wise to.

What I'll say is,

I'm finally fulfilling
my promise.


This isn't the microwave
but for cold?


I forgot about that.

That was gonna be
the big one.

- Well, this is the big one.
- Hmm.

My time has come, Erica.

All the--you know,
the false starts

and the d*ad ends,

it's been leading up to this.

Are you gonna just keep
talking about this

until I ask you
what it is again?

Is that the game here?

Huh. All right.

Won't bring it up again.
Gonna drop it.

But just--

in the celebrity
chicken section,

there will be a Chicken
Rand Gauthier, just know that.

Maybe a shrimp dish.


You know what, though?
- Hmm.

I'm feeling very secure
in my masculinity.

I think more than I ever have.

It's like
I'm coming into my own.

But honestly, don't a--
I can't--

No, don't--don't--

[bl*ws raspberry]
I'm not gonna ask you.

RAND: Good.
- I'm not gonna ask.

Not gonna ask.
- 'Cause I won't tell you.

I know you won't.
RAND: It's a moot point.

ERICA: Moot point.
- Just know...

ERICA: I do.
- Okay.

But I do want to say
that whatever it is

that's got you
feeling this way,

I am so...happy to see it.

Get used to him.

That was nice.

[Erica and actor moaning]


[both moaning]


f*cking great.

Moving on.


Oh, my gosh.

RAND: Hey.
- Hi.

Did I do okay?

- Okay?
- Yeah.

That was incredible.

- Really?
- Yeah.

Okay, so it turns out
that our brave sheriff

has a bartending gig
at Barone's

he can't get out of.

So we'll have
another character,

the sheriff's deputy,
come in for the a**l.

Who's doing it?



Hmm, no.

No way that thing's
going in my ass.


He's the best I could do
on short notice.

I don't have a lot
of small penises in my Rolodex.

Stop smiling.
It's a f*cking dungeon.

Oh, hey. How's it going?

So nice to meet you.
Come with me.

You too. Thank you so much.

It's their number one priority

Wow, that's great.

That's amazing.

GAIL: The plan?

The plan is,

all-out media blitz.

Yes, thank you.

GAIL: Oh, please, don't be.

Here you go.
- Thank you so much.


every time I have
a kickoff meeting with someone,

I like to start
by talking story.


As in, what is the story

you want to tell?


Every good PR campaign
has a core central narrative.

- Right.
- Redemption. Resurrection.

Reinvention, self-reflection,

That's a lot of stories.

When you look
at other people's careers,

who do you look to?

Oh, you mean,
who do I admire?

Who are your role models?

Who do you aspire
to take after?

Yeah, that's a good question.

Um, I guess I would have
to say...

Jane Fonda.

Tell me.

Well, you know...

Well, when she first
started out,

she was just
this girl next door,

and, um, you know, then--
then she did Barbarella,

and she became
this huge sex symbol, you know?

Well, and then--
and then she turned around,

and she started doing
all these serious Oscar roles,

you know, and then--
and also the activism.

She was going to protests,
she was getting arrested,

and then...

and then in the ' s,
she just turns around,

she just builds
this whole fitness empire.


I mean, yeah, she was
all these different things.

She was all these totally
opposite things all at once.

She was--she was--
she was--you know,

she was protesting Vietnam
and selling workout tapes.

She was being a feminist
and a sex object.

People gave her
so much sh*t for it.

"How could you do that?
You're such a hypocrite."

But she didn't care.

She didn't give a sh*t
what people thought of her.

You know, that--that--

that's probably the most
amazing thing about her.

You know, she didn't worry
what people thought.

She never tried
to please anybody.

She was just like,
"You know what?

"I am this badass,
sex b*mb, anti-w*r,

actress chick,

and if you got
a problem with it, f*ck you."

What's cooler than that?

That is a great narrative.




Is that how you feel?

Like you have to please people?


It's all I do.
