Summer Night (2019) Movie Script

["Can't Catch Me" by NoMBe
playing through ear buds]
[music grows louder]
See me down the street
But you can't get close
'cause I'm much too fast
And I'm much too loud
And I'm so caught up
Now, is it me or my luck?
Can't get enough
Feed on alchemy
And I'm runnin' petrol
through my blood
It's a magic touch
Now watch me go
And I feed off your love
Can't get enough
See my runnin'
my last breath on "E"
Can't seem to cool it
All this precious heat
Ooh, and I won't slow down
[Tarzan yell]
Ooh, but I dare you
to catch me
Ooh, can't catch me, baby
Got any service up here?
[Jameson] I've never
in my life had service here.
Has there ever
been service here?
Dude, Mel is gonna kill me.
What did you do this time?
[Seth] I was supposed to
text her before we came up here.
- That's it?
- And, um...
[phone chimes
signaling multiple texts]
[Jameson laughs]
I take it you got service.
Wow! What did you do?
[Seth] Holy shit.
[firecracker whistling]
[soft rock music
playing in room]
Can I get you anything?
Are you sure?
What are we all doing
in the bathroom?
Oh, Mama.
[text messages bleeping]
[junior high school boys
speaking indistinctly]
[kid #2] Yeah, bro, we have
to get the cigarettes.
Isn't that your English teacher?
[kid #1] Yes, it is.
- Mr. Ford!
- Yo, what's up?
Oh, hey, guys.
How's your summer goin'?
It's hot. Sucks.
Can you buy us some cigarettes?
- Yeah, bro'.
- What?
- No, you guys are kids, come on.
- What?
You smoke all the time.
We've seen you.
- Well, it's illegal, okay?
- Are you serious?
[kid #1] Lame.
I'll steal them from my mom.
Stay out of trouble, guys.
You know, that was us once.
Still is.
[Seth] If children are
the future, we're fucked.
[rock music playing on stereo]
You know what?
I don't think I'm going
back to that teaching job.
Why, 'cause of that kid?
No, man, I just
don't really care, you know?
So, like, what's the point?
You gonna hang around and be
an asshole like the rest of us?
You sound like my dad.
[frantic texting]
Hey, sweetie?
How 'bout we
just take a little break
from texting for now, okay?
This was not the plan.
I still have three more years
of grad school.
I just don't even see
how this can work.
[Vanessa] Okay, stop beating yourself
up, for fuck's sake, Mel!
You didn't do anything wrong.
And, honestly, it's not like you
have to make the decision right now.
So, the first thing
we're gonna do
is we're gonna get you
out of the tub.
- Out of the tub.
- Oh, my god.
We're gonna go downstairs,
we're gonna watch a movie,
and it's gonna be really fun.
- I want my phone.
- No.
[phone ringing]
It's Jack.
Oh, okay, that's it.
I'm getting margarita stuff.
Well, it's not really
the time for margaritas--
I'll make hers a virgin.
- Sorry. Can I--?
- Go, go, go, go.
Hi, Jack.
No, I know I called,
and I'm so sorry,
but now's really
not a good time.
You said it was important.
What's up?
[Lexi] I know I said that,
and it is,
but it's really not a good time.
So, can I just see you
at the show?
You're freaking me out.
Just tell me what's going on.
Okay, well, at my sister's
wedding last weekend...
Well, I, um...
I met a guy.
Jack? Are you still there?
Hey, Rabbit!
So, what's up with you and Mel?
Can't tell you.
What the fuck do you mean,
you can't tell me?
That's bullshit. Talk to me.
Wish I could.
All right, fine. I'll just
drive over there myself,
- and I'll fuckin' ask her.
- No, come on, man.
Yo, seriously.
Don't do that.
- Yo!
- Here we go.
Dude, just pull over!
[Jameson] Jesus, man, what
the fuck is wrong with you?
You trying to kill us?
Yo, can you please
pull over, man?
This is why
you don't have a car.
- Fuck, Christ, dude!
- Fuck you.
Dude, you have no fuckin' idea
what you're doing.
- Stop this shit, man!
- Oh, hello, Vanessa.
Wonder what she's doing?
- Hey, buddy.
- [Jameson] What's going on?
Oh, you know,
the usual disasters.
- Yeah?
- Hey, have you seen Seth?
You know, I just saw
him a second ago.
Well, when you talk to him,
tell him he needs to call Mel.
Okay, I'll pass that along.
What is the deal with them?
I can't really say, but, um...
just tell Seth to get his ass
over here, okay?
Hey, I'll see you later,
- What's later?
- Come on, you're going.
Of course I'm going, dickhead.
I'll see you at the Alamo.
[Seth] You happy?
Fuck. I hate you.
[Jameson] Sounds like
you're really in for it.
Look, I'm sorry
for hassling you, man.
It sounds like
it's bigger than I thought.
Yeah, it fuckin' is.
Well, whatever "it" is,
you better just talk
to her about it, right?
You can't hide from it.
Just let me out.
No, I'll drive you over there.
Just, seriously, dude,
just pull over.
[Jameson] Dude, it's like
a thousand degrees out here.
Yeah, no, I know.
I gotta clear my head.
All right, fine.
[rock music playing]
Oh, fuck, man, that hurt.
- Stay down, bitch!
- Fuck!
Okay, get his wallet.
And his phone.
That's not his fuckin' phone.
Give him
your fuckin' phone
- or I'll fuckin' cut your dick off!
- Take the phone.
- I'm attached to my dick.
- Do it!
- [groans, coughs]
- We need to get outta here.
All right.
Wait, I want his shoes.
Fuck off! Come on.
My shoes, man. Are you serious?
Call the cops,
we'll murder you in your sleep!
You assholes have my phone!
[humming melody]
[car door closes]
What's up there, Andy-boy?
What are you getting
up to today?
Spreading the sweetness
and the light
to all I come into contact with.
Thinking positive,
positive thoughts.
Very, very sexy.
Oh, you got that rent check?
Yeah. I'll write a check later.
All right.
Mucho apreciado, brother.
Pumped for the show tonight?
Yeah. I got a date.
Really? Nice one, Jammers.
Who's the lucky lady?
- This party girl, Harmony.
- Okay.
So Gatsby finally gave up
the dream of the golden girl.
I was not Gatsby over Corin.
I'm gonna go inside and shower before
you disprove that with written evidence.
I'll just be out here
all alone...
all by myself.
I got a pain in my heart
I got a pain in my--
Our wayward Jack Rabbit.
Out of the cold into the fold
after prodigious prodigality.
How are you, old boy?
Hey, Andy. I talked to Lexi.
Lexi. I like her.
She slept with some bro
at her sister's wedding
last weekend.
I hate her.
- Jameson, get out here!
- What's up?
Lexi got boinked by some dude
at her sister's wedding.
[spits] Shit.
Not the groom, I hope.
Some water polo player.
I'm really sorry, man.
I know you had your heart
set on her.
Well, it's all right.
She's not my girlfriend.
She never was.
I guess Santa Barbara
meatheads are her type.
Jameson, get this man a beer.
Have I gotta do
everything around here?
You got it.
[continues strumming]
Why'd she tell you?
I don't know.
She probably feels weird.
Maybe to see how I'd react.
- How did you react?
- About like this.
[Jameson] She does understand
that you don't express emotions
- like a normal person, right?
- Thanks.
Was she apologizing?
It was more like confessing?
Sh-- She was a virgin.
- Like you.
- Yeah, let's not talk about it.
Jack Rabbit, talk about it.
It'd be good for you.
It's fine.
She didn't cheat on me.
We're friends.
Girls get drunk and screw
at weddings. It happens.
Not with me, but it happens.
I'm very sorry, Jack Rabbit.
I really gotta get ready.
Are you sure you don't wanna
talk about this?
No, absolutely not.
I regret
saying anything already.
You know what makes
me feel better?
No. Yes, but no.
[rock music playing]
[scream lingering]
[footsteps rustling]
[Dana] Taylor?
Hey, you're, uh...
You're Wells'
little sister, right?
What happened to you?
I was-- I was biking,
and a couple of guys hit me.
Is it bad?
Yeah, you're bleeding.
Yeah, I feel kinda crazy
'cause of all the adrenaline.
I'm gonna--
I'm gonna sit down.
I'm gonna sit down.
I think you need stitches.
I'm not gonna pay a doctor
for stitches. I'll just--
I'll superglue it.
- I gotta lie down.
- Oh, no. No, no, no.
I think you might have
gotten a concussion.
We are gonna get you
some butterfly bandages.
Wait here.
No, no, no. Come on.
Super gluing your face together
is, like, really white trash.
[rap music playing]
Taste that, man?
It's that blueberry shit, man.
[BDP inhaling]
Blueberry antioxidants.
Oh, shit, man.
- This shit tastes like blueberries, Ricky.
- Let me hit it.
I wanna put that shit
on my pancakes.
Mm! That's my jam!
Yo, it tastes like
my grandma's blueberry cobbler.
[BDP] Oh, yeah!
Oh, wait.
Actually, this is strawberry.
[BDP] Classic.
Yo! Seth!
- [BDP] Oh, shit!
- What are you doing here, man?
Come in here.
- What's up, man?
- Hit this shit.
Yeah, it's blueberry.
It's strawberry.
- It's strawberry.
- Yeah, man?
Good shit, huh?
Let's keep on that, brother.
Come on.
- Poor face.
- Is it that bad?
Now you're worried?
You were gonna superglue
yourself back together.
It's real nice of you to buy
all this stuff.
- I'll pay you back.
- Oh, no, no, don't mention it.
You are all set.
I don't know what to say.
This is so nice of you.
Look, there's a cop.
Go talk to him.
- They've gotta catch those guys.
- Thanks.
Um, my band's playing
the Alamo tonight.
You should come.
Cool. Yeah, maybe.
No, seriously, I mean it.
Come to the show.
All right.
Uh, excuse me, Officer.
I just got jumped
on the bike path.
Shit. Another one.
All right, hop in. I'll take
you home and do a report.
What the hell are you doing?
- They take your shoes?
- [Dana laughs]
Just hop in the car.
You're not in trouble.
See you tonight.
- Hey, can we use the sirens?
- Sure.
[ceramic object shatters]
- Is that Seth?
- Come in.
[movie playing on TV]
[actor] Daughter, how was
the moving picture tonight?
[Seth] Hey.
Hey, Sethy.
I didn't think you had it in ya.
[actor] Oh, well, then I'll stick to these.
These don't talk.
[actress] That big buck Norman
Maine was in the picture tonight.
Never does anything
but kiss a lot of girls.
- Are you high right now?
- No.
I can't have this conversation
if you're fucked up.
I'm not, okay?
I'm just, I'm freaked out.
Yeah! Well.
I feel like I just don't wanna
do anything stupid.
Oh, it's a little late for that.
What's that supposed to mean?
- You came inside of me, Seth.
- You told me to.
No, I know,
but I didn't actually mean it.
It was like a passion,
heat-of-the-moment thing.
I didn't... mean it.
Mel, I just do what you say.
No, I'm not blaming you.
I just...
I need to know
what you think about it.
I don't know what
I'm supposed to say, all right?
Like, you just seem really mad
at me right now.
[phone chimes]
[chime lingers
and grows louder]
What are you doing?
It's Caleb, all right?
I gotta hit Caleb back.
I'm fucking pregnant, Seth.
And you're texting Caleb?
Are you telling him about this?
Because you probably want
me to get an abortion,
but I have
a fucking fetus growing
- in fucking whatever this is.
- Mel. Mel.
I never said anything about
you getting an abortion, okay?
Whether you wanna keep the baby,
that's not my call.
And I'm not telling Caleb
about anything, okay?
I'm just saying that I'm
gonna be late to sound check,
and he's pissed
'cause I'm not telling him why.
That's not your call?
You should really figure out
what's important to you, Seth.
Just go.
[tower bell tolling]
[rock band performing
sound check]
[Caleb] What I'm saying is
that rock 'n' roll
started going downhill
when they stopped
having saxophone players.
I'm talking about Bobby Keys,
Clarence Clemons.
I'm talking about the time
when rock 'n' roll used
to stir positive emotions
with big backing horns, dude.
That's all gone now.
Oh. I love nacho cheese so much.
Mel's pregnant.
What the fuck, dude?
How the fuck do you get
your girlfriend pregnant?
This is isn't 1937.
And weren't you using a condom?
Isn't she on birth control?
This is offensively
irresponsible, okay?
- Think about the band.
- Can you please calm down?
- I will not calm down!
- I'm supposed to be the one freaking out right now.
What's she wanna do?
Fuck, man, I can't be a dad.
[siren whoops]
- Shit.
- Oh, shit, just act normal.
[cop] And stay off
the bike trail, please.
- Thanks very much.
- Have a good night.
- Taylor?
- [siren]
Yo, what happened
to your face, man?
- I need a drink.
- Get in a fight or something?
[to himself]
Okay, let's do this.
[Caleb] Alamo!
- Hey, Corin.
- Oh, hey, Taylor.
- Can I have a beer?
- Yeah, sure.
- Thank you.
- [Andy] Hi, handsome.
Oh, shit, what happened
to your face?
Ah, you know.
- You fighting cheetahs again?
- Yes, I was.
- What's up, man?
- You look like shit.
Did you get attacked
by a seagull?
Your face looks wrecked.
You think it'll ruin
my modeling career?
You okay, man?
A couple of tweakers jumped
me on the bike path.
But this real nice cop
took me home.
Got my shoes, got my bass,
so I'm all good.
- Damn.
- Hey, guys.
- Man.
- How much did they take?
I think, just like 20 bucks,
but, you know,
they took my phone
and my brother's bike,
so there's that.
Shit, dude.
So some methhead is looking
at your collection of dick pics.
Well, I hope so.
Hey, Smokey, can I have an E?
[Seth] Small collection.
[Taylor tuning bass to guitar]
[doorbell rings]
[game show playing on TV]
- Hi. I'm Jame--
- Harmony, your date's here!
[TV Host]
Okay! Justin Lerner,
the vacuum cleaner
repairing poet!
You ever write poems about
repairing vacuum cleaners, Justin?
Uh, no, sir, I don't.
[TV host] All right,
you ready to give this a shot?
- Yes, I am.
- Okay! Give her a whirl!
- [applause]
- [wheel spinning]
- Hey, Jameson.
- [baby fusses]
[TV host]
It's landed on 200!
Very good. Now, Justin--
Hey. Who's this little cutie?
You know I have a kid, right?
No, I didn't.
- You look freaked out.
- No, I just didn't know.
[TV host]
He'd like to solve the puzzle.
Go ahead, Justin.
[Justin] "Be careful
what you wish for"?
I'm fucking with you.
This is Annie.
She's my sister's.
All right.
She's fed, she's clean,
she's changed.
She should really go to bed now.
- Okay.
- And turn off the TV.
Read her a book,
for fuck's sake.
Let's go.
[rock music playing on radio]
[Jameson] I never wear a
seatbelt, but I'm starting to feel
like I should wear
a seatbelt in your car.
- Why, am I scaring you?
- I don't know why.
I'm just starting to realize
how much I like being alive.
Come on, this is being alive,
["Dream Lover"
by Destroyer playing]
- [turns up radio]
- Yes.
- You like Destroyer?
- I love Destroyer.
The horns in it remind me
of Springsteen,
which reminds me of my dad.
He was a Springsteen guy,
you know?
The only thing he loved more than
The Boss was me and my sister.
Where's your dad now?
He's dead.
- God, I'm really sorry.
- I was a kid.
Work accident.
He was a lineman.
My parents were divorced
when it happened.
My mom's been married
a bunch of times since then.
Ooh, a spot.
Hi, everyone. Thank you.
We're Rain and Rivers,
and we're stoked to be here.
We're stoked that you're here.
And we're stoked that The
Savings Plan is playing again.
[smattering of applause]
I know
I know
I know
You're probably thinking
of ways
Ways to be good to me
But let me help you
Let me help you
Let me help you
Spare your precious
Before you drag me
to water, no
I don't really drink, no
But this I know
I know
I know
That day I ran away
You ran away, too
[actor in movie on TV]
You know, I think I'll, um...
have a little drink.
Scotch and soda.
Scotch and soda.
How do I look?
You're going out tonight?
Yeah, I'm going to the show.
You sure you don't wanna stay in
and actually be supportive?
Ah, it's fine.
Lexi, don't pull
that Mother Teresa shit with me.
Girl, I'll be a badass aunt,
or I'll drive you
to the clinic.
Whatever you want,
I'm your main bitch.
But you can't
just sit around being sad.
I don't think
I'd be much fun tonight.
Okay, look.
Relationships are a competition,
and right now,
you are letting Seth win.
I didn't know Taylor was back.
[actor on TV] I think I shall
get very drunk indeed.
I've gotta change.
Hey, how are you guys?
Here you go. Have a good one.
Hey, how are you?
- Okay, you're all good.
- Thank you.
There you go.
Jameson, hey! How are you?
Hey, Corin, I'm good.
How are you?
Hey, so are you going out
after the show?
I wanna talk to you tonight.
You know,
when I'm off the clock.
Yeah, I mean,
I'm sure I'll be out,
you know, wherever we wind up.
Oh, that's for both of us.
[Harmony] Hi.
- Oh--.
- I'm Harmony.
Go ahead.
[Rain and Rivers singer]
These days
These days, these days
- She's cute.
- What?
I said she's cute.
Oh, yeah.
- You need a drink?
- Yeah.
And even when she's here
I forget to say
Forget to say
Dana. I'm glad
you could make it.
Yeah. Me, too.
How is your face?
You tell me.
Cute. Damaged, but cute.
And if I said I ain't a fool
- I'd be lyin'
- [string snaps]
And I don't run around
looking for lying men
It looks for me,
it looks for me
It looks for me
So if the morning makes me
jump up and go
No! You gotta make eye contact
or it's bad luck.
There we go.
So, you were about to tell me
about the ticket girl you dated.
Not really, sort of.
But not really.
Seems like she likes you.
[chuckles] No.
We're just friends.
You know, you don't have
to be weird about it.
We all have exes.
It's a small town.
I mean, I'm sure you know
most of the guys I've dated.
Seth did say something
about one of the guys he knows.
One of those complicated losers.
That's why I like you, Jameson.
You're not like those guys.
I'm right here, okay?
Is this the girl you were
telling me about?
- Harmony, Andy.
- Oh, was he?
She is
[sing-song] honorable woman
with ethics and morals
I'm sure.
What's up? She's hot.
You're hot.
I'm just saying you're, like,
much more attractive than,
like, he originally
said when he was
talking about you.
And he was talking
about you a lot.
Thank you very much.
Um, can we get
a new bass up here?
We have a broken bass string.
Partied a little too hard.
Uh, Jameson? Jameson?
Hey. Hey, Harmony.
Hey, can we borrow
Taylor's bass?
Please? Real quick?
- He's outside.
- Yeah?
- Thank you.
- [Andy] All right, he's on it.
[Caleb] You're amazing.
Anyways, what's up?
[Caleb] How's everyone doing?
Doing good?
Love your tattoos. Awesome.
So. Got a sister?
- [Harmony] Yeah.
- Nice.
You like babies?
I've got it.
- Hey, Caleb needs your bass.
- Okay.
Did Jameson tell you
about the time I saved his life?
We were in Patagonia,
and we rented a goat.
He was on the side
of this cliff,
and, um...
It's a stupid story.
I'll tell you about it
some other time.
There he is! There's Taylor.
Doesn't he look like Baby Thor?
Look at this guy. He's so cute.
Awesome, great. Okay.
- Speaking of the devil.
- Speaking of the devil.
All right. I'm gonna
give you your man back.
After everything
I have done for him.
We're ready to rock. Okay.
So, this next song is dedicated
to our good friend, Jameson.
It's just based off a bunch of
shit he said when he was drunk,
and we wrote it into a song.
So, uh,
we hope you guys enjoy it.
Things you say
get under my skin
You get everything you want
again and again
And I'm happy for you
Don't give it a twist
Don't you dare say
I'm racing you
Don't be foolish
Still you stand
on lonely ground
Hey, Rabbit.
Hey, Luke.
Papa Luke
don't get many nights out.
Gotta make 'em count.
You a'ight?
Yeah, I'm all right.
No, I'm...
I'm not all right.
You ever get your heart broken?
[laughs and coughs]
You coming on hot, Maverick.
You can relax
in your strong beliefs
You've got a smile so cruel
And a face so fine
I'll stick my hand
in the sinkhole every time
And ironically enough,
you know I pray for faith
Even though
I know dinner's comin'
I don't eat all day, yeah
You stay up all night
And I drive myself insane
And you will wonder
If I'm all right
And I'll ask you
To come over again
And again
And again
So, what's up?
[song ends]
[cheering and applause]
We should go, huh?
I mean, I've told you
a million times, Mel,
I just wanna do
what you wanna do.
I used to love
watching Seth play.
Are you gonna talk to Rabbit?
Yeah. I mean, I have to.
Is it gonna be weird?
I mean, it's Jack.
It's always a little weird.
[Andy] Hey, look, Peking
is not just a city in China.
- What's up, Rabbit?
- Luke!
- What the fuck?
- Yeah!
What the fuck?
Oh, shit, dude.
All right, no, it's Seth.
We're cool.
What's up, man?
I thought
you were somebody else.
Hey, let's smash some Fun-Fun
with Rock 'n' Roll Seth.
Fuck yeah, man.
Step into Dr. Feelgood's office.
- Hey, guys. Seriously, come on.
- [peeing]
- What?
- You mad at us?
No, man, just, can I have
my fucking space, please?
Jesus Christ, man.
Yeah, right.
"Just say no" -- Ronald Gaygan.
Yeah, man.
Rolling Rock 'n' Roll Seth
never says no
to a good time, right?
Yo, okay, I dropped
the ball last week.
What's up, man? Come on!
- Fuckin' asshole!
- Pussy!
What the fuck, dude?
There was way more on here
two seconds ago.
[drink placed on table]
[rock music playing in club]
I ain't nobody's child
It's so cool you're a teacher.
I bet all
those junior high girls
have huge crushes on you.
Oh, god! I hope not.
I would if I was in your class.
I'm really glad you're not
in my class, Harmony.
Honestly, I'm thinking about
doing something else next year.
What about you?
Do you like your job?
Yeah, it's cool,
but it's just retail.
I mean,
I wanna do lots of things.
Maybe move to L.A. or New York.
I have a friend
who's a photographer.
Sometimes I model for him.
Like fashion stuff or--?
Yeah. And, like,
art projects for his classes.
Maybe I shouldn't
tell you this, but...
I even did a nude shoot once.
- It was very tasteful.
- Cool.
My friend tried to sell
'em to this website,
but there was
this really weird contract
where they basically own you.
In the end, I just didn't want
my biggest accomplishment
to be showing my tits
on the Internet.
Not that I'm ashamed of my body.
Yeah, no, you shouldn't be.
So not a pinup.
What do you wanna do?
I'm not really sure.
I mean, I definitely don't wanna
work retail the rest of my life.
Maybe I'll, I don't know,
take some classes
at the community college
or something.
Yeah, you should.
That's a great idea.
Do you know
what you wanna study?
I mean, just take one class,
see how it goes.
Something fun
like art appreciation?
One question.
These tasteful nudes,
how would I find them?
I knew I shouldn't
have told you.
Maybe I'll send you some.
But just for you.
Excuse me,
you have to pay for--
- [rock music playing]
- [men whistling and shouting]
Hi, Tay.
I didn't know
you were back in town.
Dana, this is, uh--
This is Vanessa.
- Hi.
- Hi, I'm Dana.
Nice to meet you, Dana.
- I like your skirt.
- Oh, thank you.
Allow me to introduce...
- I said allow me to introduce...
- [music stops]
the unstoppable,
the unconventional,
the unavoidable Barking Spiders.
[cheering and applause]
Real happy to be playing
for y'all tonight.
- [woman] Love you, Andy!
- [man] Take off your pants.
All you jerks in the audience.
[man] "Freebird"!
Oh, put it on
Take it off real quick
On the bottom of the pile
I'm feeling sick
It never crossed my mind
that my baby lied, no
To keep me
in the beggars' guild
So I sleep all day
and I dream all night
With the bottle in my hand,
I take the devil's side
I smile real big
- Just to keep it hid
- Yeah!
All those shoes
down my back
You wanna dance?
Come on, let's dance.
So I run like hell
from the city's glow
I lose my name, my past
And forget
the folks I used to know
Find home far away
from the city gates
And the long reach
of the government
Oh, all alone
in a cold north sea
In the blue sky above
a plane flew over me
[cell phone buzzing]
It's my sister.
I'll be right back.
Did you really think
you'd ever win?
- Y'all even dating?
- No.
Well, did you tell
her how you felt?
Well, so that means
you don't even want her now?
No, I--
I hear you calling
I can't talk right now,
I'm on a date, remember?
Will tomorrow work?
I'll let you know
if I can get back early.
Hey. What's your name?
We, uh, met earlier?
Right, yeah.
Can I ask you something?
What's going on there?
Um, he's great.
He's sweet and smart.
No, no.
I mean you and Jameson.
Oh, um...
yeah, we're friends.
He's a great friend.
I don't wanna get
in the way of something
if it's already happening,
and I don't wanna get involved
and then find out
that you guys have history
and that you're still into him.
[Barking Spiders playing]
Go for it.
He's... He's all yours.
So, you're not into him.
Okay. Thanks.
[song ending]
- [applause]
- All right.
Come on, man. Smile, man.
There's music playing and shit.
Listen, we wanna get everyone
up here on this next one.
Taylor, Rain and Rivers,
get your ass up here.
Let's break this stage!
[cheers and whistles]
[drummer counting off]
In the morning
Yeah, I'm looking down,
On the freaks
and the lowlifes of the earth
I am able-bodied and alive
And I cut my teeth
on compromise
Death defying,
come on hold me under
I've been drowning
my whole life
Say something, man.
You're sitting here feeling
sorry for yourself.
Get up and go tell
her how you feel.
You can't be mad at
her that she did that
'cause you said nothing.
For the light
On my own, on my own
Imagine this, right.
You don't say nothing now,
she finds some other dudes.
How do you feel about that?
On my own deadweight throne
Chasing airwaves
and a meaningless smile
Through the
polyethylene rain
Can I love you
with this hole in my head?
You know
I got shit for brains
You receive me
in your bending arms
And I'm laughing
like a child
In the morning, yeah,
and on the edge of this town
I dream of running wild
For miles
[Andy] Come on, now!
On my own, on my own
On my own deadweight throne
On my own, on my own
On my own deadweight throne
And all I'd find
[Harmony laughs]
All I'd find
were your bloodshot eyes
[music stops]
[Andy] Yoo!
[cheering and applause]
- What's up, Luke?
- Yo.
Good to see you, man.
How great is this, man?
Y'all ruled tonight.
- Thanks, dude.
- Yeah.
- You going out later?
- No, man, I'm on daddy duty.
Wifey's home with the baby now.
- Man, what's that like?
- What's what like?
I mean...
being a dad.
Well, I hardly get any sleep
or go to the movies
or go see my friends.
I mean, my kid...
My kid has
more friends than I do.
I mean, I go to all the parties.
Baby birthday parties, man.
It's not a fun way to spend
your Sunday afternoon.
I mean, you ever been to a
birthday party for a one-year-old?
Uh, not in the past 21 years.
If you do, can you please
explain the point to me?
The kids don't understand
what's going on,
and it's a terrible, terrible
experience for the adults.
It's probably
for the photos, you know,
so you can convince your kid
you weren't
such a shitty parent.
Never get old, Seth.
It's not worth it, man.
All right. Good talking.
Yeah, man, same, man.
Shit, this is fucking hard.
[BDP] It's easy,
you just suck at it.
- It's all timing. Hey!
- Ohh!
You don't wanna--
Hey, buddy, buddy.
You don't wanna do this.
It just means you've got
way too much free time.
It's all, like, it's like this.
- Ohh, shit, stud!
- Like that.
Impressive, Seth.
You learn that in juvie?
Actually, no, Vanessa.
I learned that caddying.
- Got a smoke for me?
- Mm-hmm. Yeah, right here.
Oh, hey.
I didn't think you'd come.
I thought you wanted me to come.
No, I mean, I do.
Like, I'm happy to see you.
- Wrist.
- Lady.
So, who's up next?
The Savings Plan.
Best thing that's
ever come outta here.
They didn't
come outta here, Ricky.
- They're still here.
- [BDP laughs]
You college girls
don't know anything.
Right, we don't know
about local bands
or being giant fuck-ups, hmm?
The Savings Plan is the greatest
thing that's ever happened here.
- Baaaah!
- Baaaah!
[Ricky] I'll never forget
the first time
I saw 'em
in the church basement.
They should've been huge.
The Plan was as good
as any other band like them,
but they were great
'cause they didn't give a shit.
You gotta convince everybody
how great you are
just to believe it yourself.
Does it even matter?
[Vanessa] Is this, like,
all you guys do?
Sit around and talk about bands
nobody cares about?
We have barbecues sometimes.
You should come over.
Savings Plan is on!
Feels real good to be playing
as a band again.
But it's even better
to be here with all of you.
So thanks for coming,
and let's play.
- Yeah!
- Whoo!
[band playing rock music]
Confound yourself
Confound yourself
with wonder
Confound yourself
with what is happening
Is it a fact?
Isn't a fact
more intriguing?
Isn't a fact
gonna remain unchanged?
Out then in,
guilty by appropriation
Out then in
- Guilty by impersonation
- Hey.
How are you?
I think we should talk.
[music continuing]
Oh, do you wanna go outside
or something
so we can hear each other?
Not really.
Do you want a beer?
Not from you.
The moment you realized
The moment
you realized others?
Out then in
Beds are for bedlam
- Out then in
- [groans]
- [Dana gasps]
- [music stops]
Guys, stop.
What's going on?
[Ricky] You guys fuckin'--
Are you serious?
[man] Hey, what's
going on down there?
- BDP pushed me!
- Aw, shit!
- [Ricky] Caleb Grass.
- [Taylor] Hey.
What, man?
[Vanessa] Oh, Ricky.
You suck!
[Andy] Oh, we got
a troublemaker in the house.
[Ricky] Oh, my god.
Get him outta here!
Ya bum!
All right, here's another one.
Sing along if you know it.
- Let's party!
- [cheering]
[bottle breaks]
Heavy lunch is a travesty
It speaks to me
such sweet little mutterings
"Where are you going?
Haven't you got there yet?"
Rough carving
on the bathroom stall
Stinks of alcohol poured tall
till we are done
"Where have you been?
Why are you leaving?"
"I don't really know
I don't really know"
"I don't really know
you anymore"
[cheers and whistles]
Thank you.
- [car idling]
- [laughter]
I think everybody's going to
LaSalles, if you're interested.
Or we could just go
to my place instead.
Yeah, I mean, don't you wanna
get a drink first?
You're a good guy, Jameson.
I'll see you later.
Wait, why?
Because when I ask if you wanna
come over to my place,
the answer needs to be
a resounding yes.
You need to finish up
with that other girl.
No, it's not like that.
I don't date guys
who are only sort of into me.
It's one of those things
I've learned
after dating dirtbags
for a long time.
But call me
when you figure your shit out.
What the fuck am I doing?
[Luke] That's the answer
full of love, man.
You know what I mean?
Seriously, man,
it's like the ocean.
You know how the waves come in.
- Luke. What's up, man?
- You heading out?
- Where's everybody going?
- LaSalles.
It's gonna be a shit show.
Ah, please, man.
I'm a dad now.
You know how many chores I had
to trade in to get a night off?
You goin'?
I've gotta figure
something out first though.
All right. Hey,
you can't build a house
using your head for a hammer.
Wait, what?
All right, young bloods.
Be safe, have fun.
I'm off to the homestead.
[motorcycle starts]
Vaya con Dios, Luke!
There goes
a real hero of the faith.
They want us out.
Go to LaSalles or go home.
- You comin'?
- To the bar?
- Yeah.
- Well, I'm not 21.
It's fine. I've been going
to LaSalles since I was 16.
You're goin'.
The night's not over yet.
Hey, Taylor.
Take a picture with me.
Come on, what are you doin'?
Who's driving me to LaSalles?
Okay, come on.
[slow rock music
playing in club]
Hey. You going out after this?
It depends how long it takes
me to clean up this mess.
Well, I'll be out,
wherever we wind up.
- On your date?
- She went home.
She's really cool though.
You'd like her.
Yeah, okay. Well, don't get
too wild before I find you.
I wanna talk to smart Jameson,
not drunk and emotional Jameson.
It's a little embarrassing.
Actually I am drunk,
emotional Jameson.
Okay. Just remember, J,
I like you better
when you're you.
["Stupid Decisions"
by Fidlar playing]
Mel? No, no. Can we--
Can we please
not do this right now?
Why can't you
just take me home?
Let's just have one drink,
and I'll take you home afterwards.
I don't wanna go out,
and I don't want you
to stumble into
my room at 3:00 a.m.
like it's a romantic gesture.
you're gonna make me cry.
And I fucking hate crying.
- Seth, we are pregnant.
- I know.
- And you're acting like everything is fine.
- I fucking know.
I know nothing's fine,
all right?
I'm not stupid.
I just wanna go
to the bar with my friends
and my band and have one drink.
And I want you to be there.
I don't see
what the big deal is.
Okay. You do whatever
you wanna do.
Rabbit, you wanna go to...
You wanna get a drink?
I'm walking Lexi home.
And now I'm home
and I'm all alone
Wanna hit the road
And make
some stupid decisions
And I don't want them back
[new song]
One, two, three, four
One, two, ready, go
[song continues]
[Dana laughs]
Is there a password
or something?
Yeah, the emergency exit
alarm is broken.
It's kind of a secret.
It's good to be
out here though.
In a dark alley?
You should be more careful,
Taylor Peters.
You could get jumped again.
I mean, it's nice
to be out here with you.
[BDP] Oh, look, there's the guy
that you love that doesn't want you.
- Have I told you that I'm single right now?
- Shit.
Where are you goin'?
I'll wait for you.
What's up, gents?
How's it going?
So, I know you're bummed
about Corin,
and I know she's nice, yeah,
but she's always fucking
with your head, man.
- I'm fine.
- It's not even that. It's...
If you quit teaching and you piss away
your hard work for whatever reason,
for Corin or
whatever bullshit reason, man,
I'm gonna hit you with my car.
You don't have a car, Seth.
Dude, I'll fucking hit
you with your car.
You gonna tell me
what's up with Mel?
She's pregnant.
How are you feeling?
Well, man, I feel like...
I feel like
no matter what we do,
whether we keep
the baby or not...
Yeah, chug that shit!
It's like none of this
is gonna be the same.
Chug, chug, chug, chug, chug!
Man, you're drunk!
Is it such a bad thing?
[Corin] Hey, Jameson.
What's a girl gotta do
to get a pitcher
of gin and tonic
around here, huh?
Go be with her.
What's good, amigo?
Dude, I gotta get out of here
before I end up old and alone.
- Like me?
- No, dude, you're cool.
You got, like,
four different girlfriends.
[laughs] Sometimes.
What's up, girl?
Get outta here.
Go make love.
But in the darkness,
realize that
in the grips of love
that you are
so close to death
and that love is
the only bulwark against death.
Keep an eye on our boy.
[rock music playing]
I hate my life.
- Bye.
- Bye, babe.
She's not 21.
She's wearing,
like, a shit brown skirt
and a white top.
Are you listening?
- Point her out to me.
- Okay, look.
I don't want her to know
I told on her, okay?
I just don't think
it's cool for her to be here.
All right. Shit brown skirt.
Not 21. I'll take care of it.
Thank you. When?
Sometime after you
stop bothering me.
- Night, Rabbit.
- Yeah.
Thanks for taking care
of me tonight.
Good night, friend.
Jack, you're acting like
we don't even know each other.
That's kinda how it feels.
Are you dating this guy?
No. That's why I wanted
to talk to you.
I mean, what happened?
Did he...?
No, it's not like that.
I wanted it to happen.
Okay? It was nice.
Okay, I don't need
to hear all this.
Jack, I'm just trying
to talk to you.
I don't wanna hear about
how nicely this guy screws.
I think I was wrong about
what was going on between us.
I think I was.
I was wrong
about how I felt about you.
But I'm not gonna beat
myself up about it, okay?
It happened.
But it should have been...
together for the first time.
What does that mean?
It means I wanna be with you.
If you can accept the fact
that I'm not perfect and...
Well, if you still
wanna be with me, so...
Wait, stop, stop. Hold on.
Let's just slow down.
You said you wanted it
to be me.
I know I did.
And I do.
Look, I'm here.
And I just told you how I feel.
But this is
all new territory for me.
So maybe tomorrow,
or the next day,
or the day after that,
we'll see how it goes.
But not here.
Not in my kitchen.
And not until
after you've thought about it.
You know,
put a little effort into it.
I'll talk to you tomorrow.
Okay, good night.
[rock music playing]
We look like
a depressing version
of a Norman Rockwell painting.
You okay?
I'm just--
I can't wait to move
to New York next year.
Yeah, I hear life in New York
is really easy and convenient.
I'm tired of this town, Jameson,
and all the pathetic shit
that goes on.
Hey, you mind walking me home?
Not at all.
I'm gonna go hit the head,
tell Andy I'm leaving.
Well, I'll be here
with this bucket of gin.
[song continuing]
All right, come on.
- I wish we'd met before today.
- We did.
You know what I mean,
I mean like this.
- You wanna know something funny?
- What?
- Actually, never mind.
- What?
No, never mind.
No, what is it? Tell me.
- Tell me.
- It's embarrassing.
Well, embarrassing for you
or embarrassing for me?
- For me.
- Well, then, you gotta tell me.
[both laugh]
You were the first boy
I had a crush on.
Ha ha! Yeah.
You'd come over
to my brother's to play music,
and I'd get so mad
'cause he wouldn't let me watch.
I mean, we were just playing
really bad covers of Ramones songs,
so I don't think
you were missing very much.
Yeah, I know.
I listened from my room.
- Handy Andy.
- [groans]
I'm gonna go walk Corin home.
Gonna be here for a while?
Yeah, a few more.
I'll catch you at the house.
All right.
Watch out, you old romantic.
I know how moonbeams
and gin get to you.
Don't worry about me.
I'm a big boy.
It's a mother's job to worry.
- Milady.
- Thanks.
Hey, let me see your I.D.?
- Oh, um...
- Is there a problem?
Uh, I must have dropped it.
If you don't have an I.D.,
I don't know
how you got in here.
It's all right, she's with me.
You and your high school girlfriend
are leaving before I call the cops.
Wanna get out of here?
Yeah, it's...
it's kinda dead, right?
Yeah. Yeah, I think so.
Come on.
- I'm so sorry.
- No, it's fine.
I'm so sick of this shit.
[train whistle blowing]
Thanks for walking me home.
Of course.
It's finally starting
to cool down.
You said you wanted to talk.
What did you wanna talk about?
Why'd you get drunk
at my birthday party,
say all that stuff?
It was nice how this was,
being friends.
Why'd you...
mess it up?
I didn't realize
I was messing anything up
by telling you how I feel.
You just don't like hearing it.
I mean, I'm--
I'm not gonna argue
with you, Jameson.
But I think
if we were in a real city,
you'd be over this by now.
[slow rock song
playing softly in background]
[Corin] It's been
such a strange summer.
Ugly, smoky days
and pretty nights.
- Corin--
- You know what, Jameson, it's--
it's getting late,
I should get to bed.
Let's... Let's not do
this tonight, okay?
But you're
always hiding from me.
Just tell me what you want.
I still don't know what to say.
Look, J, like,
you can go anywhere.
You can do anything.
You have all these plans
and dreams for your life,
and none of them include hanging
around your deadbeat friends
- and drinking beer.
- Corin, I mean, I'm alive,
and I'm sitting here
on this porch swing with you.
And I don't think it gets
any better than this...
you know.
I'm sorry, Jameson.
I've been such a bitch.
And you're so sweet and...
I just...
I don't know why I...
I can't do this.
'Cause you don't want to.
I have this...
idea in my head of
what I want my life
to be like and
what it should be like,
and then you just keep...
messing it up.
Good night, Corin.
[Dana singing and laughing]
You know, I have lived
in this town all my life,
and I have never gone
night swimming.
You wanna go in?
Oh, I'm not
skinny-dipping, sorry.
Well, that's fine, good.
I'm incredibly modest.
Just dive in.
[Dana laughs]
Uh, I don't wanna get
my clothes wet.
But I, uh...
But I do wanna go swimming.
- Is it cold?
- Well, certainly.
Are you gonna check the water?
[Dana laughs]
[laughing] Oh!
- How is it?
- It's perfect.
Oh, god.
My pants came off.
Come on.
- Turn around?
- Why? It's dark.
I'm-- I'm shy.
Oh! It's freezing!
Oh! Oh, my god!
It's fed by the river.
It's always cold.
- Oh!
- [laughing]
- I think it's refreshing.
- Then go back in!
No! No!
No! No!
Oh, my god, no! No!
[phone line ringing]
[recording] Hey!
You've reached Mel. You can--
[hangs up]
[rock music playing softly]
How was the bar?
It was all right.
Mel, I was--
I was not
a good boyfriend today.
Was that meant to be an apology?
It wasn't a very good one.
I'm sorry.
Like, all I wanted
to do tonight
was just, like,
drink myself silly, but...
but Mel I love you, so I'm here.
But, like, if you, um...
If you're not, like, ready
to talk about it
or if, like,
you're too tired,
I get it.
So I'll just, I'll, uh...
Just take your shoes off.
You gotta stop being a dickhead.
It's genetic.
Dad's a dickhead.
Grandpa's a dickhead.
There's no hope for me.
So you're saying
if we have this kid,
it's just automatically gonna
pop out a dickhead?
- Little baby dickhead.
- Awesome.
I mean, that or
it adopts your, uh...
your dad's bad hair
and Orange County
fascist tendencies.
My dad.
I wouldn't be like him,
you know.
I know.
Can I say something?
I, um...
I'm gonna get a better job.
You can stay in school.
And then after...
I'll stay at home
and you can work.
'Cause, um...
Oh, man, no, I think
we need to have this baby.
[song playing in bar]
...with anybody
Just to dance with anybody
I'm not gonna
love with anybody
Just to love with anybody
I'm not gonna die
for anybody
Just to die for anybody
I'm not gonna dance
with anybody
Just to dance with anybody
[instrumental continues]
All right.
[speaks indistinctly]
- To you.
- To you.
We're over yonder
Look into the storm
I'm tellin' you my brother
That a change is comin' on
Yes, my man.
You know, it's exhausting
being an irresistible
guy like me.
You taking her home?
She's got her kid tomorrow.
- So--.
- So, no.
- Okay. You hungry?
- Yeah.
Let's go down to the diner
and see if our
favorite waitress is working.
Uh-huh. Sweet Maria.
Your words
are the breath of spring.
Your bosom
the promise of heaven.
[Andy laughing]
Food finally killed someone.
Real funny, Rabbit.
[Rabbit] I'm going back
to the house. I'm tired.
Absolutely not.
We still got things
to drink about, talk about.
I wanna hear
what sexy Lexi had to say.
[Rabbit] No way.
Don't run away, bunny rabbit!
We know you have feelings.
[Andy] We're gonna get
those feelings.
Bullshit, I'm going to bed.
You can talk about my feelings.
[Jameson] Take us to Caleb's.
Caleb has beer!
Caleb's got beer!
I don't think Caleb's home.
Really? There's a fire.
- [Rabbit] Oh! Oh!
- [laughter]
You're such a dick.
[Andy laughing]
[Rabbit] Asshole.
Come on. Come on, bud.
You okay, Rabbit?
No, man, he's not home.
Beer, beer, beer.
[Andy] Beer.
Give me one of those.
- Yes.
- At last.
[cans opening]
- Oh, good god!
- Fuck.
- What are you guys doing here?
- Good morning, Caleb.
- We're hanging out.
- [Andy laughing]
Well, hand me a beer
if you guys are gonna stay.
- [Andy] Yes!
- Sneaky bastards.
Get the man a beer!
[Jameson] I gotta do
everything around here?
Where's my shirt?
Where's my shirt?
[Andy] Now we got
a hootenanny, boys.
[Jameson] What are you doing
out here, Caleb?
Dude, it was too hot
in my room to sleep.
That's 'cause you live
in a woodshed.
What are you doing here?
- Rabbit and Lexi had a conversation.
- No shit?
And we need to hear about it.
What happened with Lexi?
Uh, we talked.
We made out for a second.
[Jameson] Ha! Yeah!
[Andy] Yes! Yes!
I think it's gonna work out.
I honestly thought
that you were
sexually dyslexic
for a while.
[Rabbit] Fuck you.
- How was your night, Jameson?
- [Caleb] J-boy.
I went to see about Corin.
It's not gonna work out though.
I can't sit around
waiting for her,
being a sad sack.
I gotta do something
with my fucking life.
Can't hang out
with you assholes forever.
[Andy] The end...
of a pathetic...
depressing era.
- You gonna hit up Harmony?
- Yes!
- [Andy] There we go, okay!
- I am.
[Andy] Right on!
Well, sounds like
a productive day for all.
I love you guys.
And I got
an announcement to make.
Here we go again.
I'm gonna go on an adventure.
I'm gonna go off
on an adventure.
[Caleb] Heard you
the first time, Andy.
To find myself.
And I'm gonna find myself.
- I'm gonna hike.
- Chug these beers. Come on, let's go.
Stand up, stand up, stand up.
- House rules.
- You ruined it, man.
I was just giving
an amazing speech.
Three, two, one, go.
Go, go, go!
I was saying something
really profound there,
and this asshole
just interrupted me.
Cheers, you sluts.
[Jameson burps]
[Caleb] Yeah!
I don't feel too good.
Ow, my tummy.
I gotta stop drinking.
[bell tolling]
["Golden Days"
by Whitney playing]
Oh, don't you save
me from hangin' on
I tell myself
what we had is gone
And after all
that I put you through
I get knocked out
like I never knew
[bell jingles]
Can I get an extra shot
of espresso in mine?
Iced coffee for me,
with espresso.
Hey, guys.
Okay. Coming right up.
[Caleb] Thank you.
[Dana] Iced coffee.
Rough night?
Best night of my life.
But it's gonna be
one hell of a morning.
[somber song playing softly
in coffee shop]
[humming softly to music]
What are we doing tonight?
["No Matter Where We Go"
by Whitney playing]
We'll make a living, darlin',
down the road
'Cause I've got you holding on
to see where it goes
So don't you feel lonely
I want you to know
I can take you out
I wanna drive around
With you
with the windows down
And we can run all night
When I was walking around,
I couldn't see you alone
I bought a trash heap two-seat
What did we know?
So don't you feel lonely
no matter where we go
I wanna take you out
I wanna drive around
With you
with the windows down
And we can run all night
Hey, mama, don't slow down
Na na na na na
Ohh, I wanna take you out
I wanna drive around
With you
with the windows down
And we can run all night
