1 MAN: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.
Something's not right.
Is it getting hot in here? Or is it just me? (CROWD CHEERING) (NELLY'S "HOT IN HERRE") NELLY: Hot in So hot in here So hot in WOMAN: Whoo! NELLY: Oh With a little bit of uh, uh And a little bit of uh, uh Just a little bit of, just a little bit of Swear to God, if this chick hits me with her "look-at-me" wand one more time, I'm gonna deck her.
- Or we could just leave.
- No way.
If I have to turn 30, eight-pack abs are my present.
(CROWD CHEERING) EMCEE: Tiffany, it's time to get up onstage before you get hitched.
NELLY: And, uh, I'm leaving - Please believe in - Hey, we can't see! NELLY: Me and the rest of my heathens Y'all deaf, down in front? NELLY: Penthouse, rooftop, birds I'm feeding Back off.
It's her day.
Actually, it's my birthday.
Aww, happy birthday, Grandma.
NELLY: Dance floor, it's getting hot in here (PEOPLE SHOUTING) Cool off, bitch.
(GASPS) Oh, no, you don't.
All right, Paul, Marjan, why don't you work the crowd, see if you can treat some of these people to lighten the load for medical.
- Probie! - MATEO: Yes, sir? Check the champagne room.
Always something bad going on up there.
- How would you know that? - That is not important.
Make a hole.
Make a hole.
(BOTH WHIMPERING) Stop moving, bitch! You have to let go of my hair! Ladies, ladies, you need to calm down, and you gotta stay still.
I thought these crowns were supposed to be made out of plastic.
It's a tiara, not a crown, and it's platinum.
I don't do plastic! You are plastic.
Is this tiara woven into your scalp? Yes, I paid my stylist $285 to do it like Princess Meghan.
- So yes! - All right.
We're gonna have to cut this out.
No, no, no.
You can't cut my hair! My wedding's in three days.
(CHEYENNE SCREAMS) - (TIFFANY WHIMPERS) - (CHEYENNE YELPING) (CURIOUS MUSIC) How did this happen, exactly? I tried to break up the fight, and some crazy chick blasted me with a glitter hose.
(PAUL LAUGHS) Well, uh, lucky for you, I have extensive glitter removal training.
(CHUCKLES) It's gonna be a little cold, okay? (JOSIE LAUGHS) Ready? Here it comes.
You're doing great.
- (JOSIE WINCES) - PAUL: Enough of that.
All right, we're gonna open your eyes on three, okay? - (JOSIE LAUGHS) - One, two, three.
How do you feel? Perfect.
That's great.
Uh, um, amazing work, Captain.
Well, thank you, "Captain.
Shriver to NICU.
Steven Shriver, please report to NICU.
You need something? I got peppermint oil or, uh, saltines, ginger chews, um, headphones You're freaking out.
I'm not freaking out.
I'm kind of freaking out.
- (TK EXHALES HEAVILY) I was too the first time.
Thanks for being with me.
Of course.
I can't believe you've been dealing with everything on your own.
To juggle it with the job, that's insane.
It's been a lot, but Oof.
You nauseous? I will be when the advice starts.
Captain Strand, good to see ya.
How you doing? All right.
Good to see ya.
This is TK, my boy.
Oh, so you finally came clean.
Good for you.
Wayne Gettinger.
You got your pop's QB-1 looks.
(CHUCKLES) Lucky boy.
Oh, hey, let's do the left side today, Jan.
I wanna visit with my friends, okay? So TK, you local? Uh, or are you just coming to visit the old man? We work together.
- Oh, you're a firefighter too? - Yes, sir.
Boy, the trouble you must get up to, huh? (CHUCKLES) Austin, lock up your daughters.
(LAUGHS) Actually, I play for the other team.
"Lock up your sons" don't sound quite right, does it? Heh.
Aw, hell, I don't judge.
Important thing is, we play when we can.
Ain't that right, Captain? Huh? 'Cause Lord knows we don't get out on the playing field much.
Uh, speak for yourself, Coach.
I get on the field plenty.
Oh, now, you don't have to puff up for me.
I mean, there's no shame in it.
I have no idea what you're talking about right now.
(SIGHS) What are you talking about? Well, the treatment that we get here can (SIGHS) Well, it can, uh make the "little soldier," let's say, um Take an extended furlough.
(LAUGHS) There's nothing wrong with my little soldier.
Perfectly healthy and active.
It's a patriot and always ready to stand at attention.
Yeah, may seem like that now, but (SIGHS) Don't be too shocked if a day comes real soon and it turns out to be a deserter.
Okay, I'll take those headphones.
TK: Mm-hmm.
(MELLOW ROCK MUSIC) SINGER: Yeah, we'll make it somehow (BIRDS CHIRPING) Judd is gonna be so upset he missed you guys.
He had a shift, though.
Don't they always? (CHUCKLES) How you two holding up, though? (SIGHS) We have good days and bad.
She misses her daddy.
- Yeah, we both do.
- GRACE: Mm.
(LAUGHS) It was so good So good to see Judd back with the 126.
How is he getting on with that fancy new captain? - Um - (BOTH LAUGH) It was a rough start, but Captain Strand has been very supportive.
That's good.
Yeah, and he forced Judd into therapy.
- My goodness.
- Mm-hmm.
What's that like, I wonder? It might be helping.
But, I mean, though he's still not well, never mind.
- What? - Mm-mm.
No, what? Nothing.
No, it's it's definitely something.
(SIGHS) (SOLEMN MUSIC) He's just been distant.
And, you know, I'm trying to be patient, but it's been a minute since we were intimate.
So how many minutes are we talking about, exactly? Since the accident.
Four months' worth of minutes? No, Grace.
No, you need to grab this bull by the horns and you need to fix this.
- I mean now.
- Okay.
Colleen, things cool down in marriages, don't they? Yeah, normally after you have kids, and at this rate, you never will.
- MABEL: Here's your bracelet.
- Thank you, sweet pea.
Oh, it's beautiful.
Is Aunt Grace gonna ride a bull? - No, no, no, no - If she knows what's good for her, mm-hmm.
Okay, and this See, this grape juice is not good for Mama.
- JOSIE: Hey.
- Can I help you? Yeah, I'm looking for Paul.
(CALLING) Strickland? PAUL: Yo! You got a visitor.
Hey! It's, uh it's Josie, right? You remembered.
Yeah, you, um You never forget a lady's name after you've flushed stripper glitter out of her eyes.
(BOTH LAUGH) They're beautiful, by the way.
Your eyes.
I mean, without all the s-stripper glitter in 'em.
I hope you don't mind me popping in like this.
I just wanted to thank you for helping me and my stupid friends.
(LAUGHS) Stupid friends are what keeps the lights on around here.
(LAUGHS) Well, this is from Cooper's.
It is the best smoked brisket on the planet.
Uh, you're not a vegan? No, ma'am.
Meat eater.
You never know these days.
No, no, you do not.
(CHUCKLES) Thank you again.
Sure, yes.
Uh, and and thank you.
Oh, and let me know what you think.
I left my number inside the basket.
So you can just text me or whatever.
No, yeah, I'll I'll do that.
(MOUTHING) PAUL: Thank you.
(QUIETLY) Yeah, Paul! You stud.
Pow, pow, pow.
(WHISPERS) Shut up, shut up, shut up.
REX'S "GET IT ON") (BLUESY ROCK MUSIC) (SUCKS TEETH) Uh, I wouldn't use that one.
- What? - I'm sorry.
It's it's not my place.
BOLAN: Clad in black, don't look back But that is just gonna carpet bomb your pores with humectants.
And the next stop is breakout city, and believe me, I've been there.
I don't think I've ever heard a man use the word "humectants.
" (CHUCKLES) Well, skin care's kind of my jam.
- Owen.
- Zoe.
BOLAN: You're dirty, sweet So help me out.
I need something for these bags.
- You mean like a microscope? - (FORCED LAUGH) That's so sweet.
It's also a lie.
I was up two nights straight grading midterms.
So Well, um, with your skin tone, I wouldn't bother with concealer.
I would go right to the spoons.
- Spoons? - Yeah, spoons.
You know, you put a spoon in the freezer overnight, and in the morning, you rub it here.
It reduces the fluid under your eye, and the cold takes away the puffiness.
You look supple and fresh.
Does that really work? Proof's in the pudding.
Would you believe I'm coming off a 24-hour shift? You're a doctor? Firefighter.
So, wow.
You're perfect.
Well Why don't they make straight ones like you? - Um - BOLAN: Get it on Bang a gong Get it on Get it on Bang a gong, get it on (MOANS SOFTLY) Get it on Bang a gong, get it on (DOG BARKING DISTANTLY) Wow, I don't even know what to say.
You don't need to say anything.
It happens.
Not to me, it doesn't.
Do you really have to go? Well, it's been, like, three hours, and I'm I'm kind of starving.
You wanna maybe grab a bite to eat with me? Nah, I don't have much of an appetite.
You're spiraling.
Oh, I'm spiraling.
Well, you really don't have to.
A an occasional failure to launch doesn't mean anything.
It happens to every man.
It has literally never happened to me.
All right, listen, I know that men of a certain age, it's common for you guys to define your manhood in very narrow terms.
Yeah, in the terms of their manhood.
But that that is not an evolved paradigm.
The more rigidly you view it, the more pressure you put on yourself.
If you could avoid using words like "rigid," that might be helpful.
(LAUGHS) Masculinity doesn't have to be performative.
It's much more expansive than that.
It's about how you How you approach life.
It's about how you perceive yourself.
And to tell you the truth, this kind of stuff gets fixed usually if you just relax and do nothing.
So what are you? Are you, like, a sex therapist? I'm a professor of psychology with a focus on human sexuality.
Glad you didn't tell me that before.
That would have gotten in my head.
(EXHALES SHARPLY) I'm sorry you're taking this so hard.
Again, another word you might wanna avoid.
Owen, I like you.
I do, okay? I don't usually jump into bed with a guy I met at the beauty supply store who I thought was gay.
And to be clear, I am not.
I really hope this isn't the last time we meet.
Are you sure you don't wanna grab a bite with me? I'm buying.
I think I gotta take a rain check.
(QUIRKY MUSIC) Masculinity is not a crime.
PROTESTORS: Masculinity is not a crime! Masculinity is not a crime.
This so-called "shelter" uses taxpayer dollars to commit fraud.
False accusations of domestic violence smears men and destroys families.
You have to arrest them! The women inside the shelter have been traumatized enough.
I understand, ma'am.
If you could just stand back, we'd appreciate it.
(CROWD SHOUTING) Masculinity is not a crime.
Sir, I'm gonna need you to put down the bullhorn, please.
- We're not breaking any laws.
- No one said you did.
We just need to have a look at your permit.
- My what? - Your permit to assemble.
It's called the Bill of Rights.
Actually, it's called an L7-B parade permit.
This is bull crap.
- CARLOS: Sir - Masculinity is not a crime.
Sir, I'm asking you kindly to disperse Ow! Don't touch me.
- I know my rights.
- I get that, b Ow! (TENSE MUSIC) - Who threw that bottle? - (CROWD SHOUTING) - MCCOY: Back up.
Back up.
- Sir? Sir? Everybody, back up! Back up! Dispatch, we need an EMS response at 2400th block of Goya.
Patient was struck with bottle, appears to be having a seizure.
(DRAMATIC MUSIC) (SIRENS WAILING) What are we walking into here? Dispatch said something about a riot.
It's a women's shelter.
What are they protesting? Women.
They're incels.
Involuntary celibates.
That's a thing? We used to just call them "losers.
" Prince Charming here took a bottle to the head, was out for a minute or two, but he has woken up in rare form.
MICHELLE: Check his ABCs and get his vitals.
Lady coworker.
Lady boss.
You stink like estrogen, bro.
You stink like garlic, so I guess we're even, bro.
His pupil response is good.
He's tachycardiac, and I'm detecting Cheyne-Stokes respiration.
Let's get him on the board and load him up.
Ow! CARLOS: He did the exact same thing when I barely touched him earlier.
Sir, do you have any medical conditions we should know about? I have CPPD.
You heard him.
Be gentle.
CPPD? Painful crystal deposits on the joints.
It's like severe arthritis.
(GROANING) Toxic inside and out.
CRAIG: Masculinity's not a crime.
PROTESTORS: Masculinity is not a crime! What'd this guy eat for lunch, a clove of garlic? We should administer a breath mint.
- (OXYGEN HISSING) - (SLURRING) I heard that.
What's your name? I'm gonna report you.
(MUMBLES) BP's dropping.
Not detecting respiration.
Start CPR.
I'll ready the paddles.
- (MACHINE BEEPS) (EXHALES DEEPLY) Jeez, man what a stink.
(EXHALES DEEPLY) MICHELLE: Gillian? I don't think that's garlic.
Tim! Tim, pull over! - (TIRES SCREECH) - (OBJECTS CRASHING) (SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC) (SIRENS WAILING) (HORN HONKS) What do you got? Blake and her team are stuck in there.
There's some toxic fumes, couldn't get 'em out.
He almost passed out.
I don't know why.
Captain Blake? Yeah, she's in there with her team and a patient they were trying to transport.
PD got here first, but they couldn't get close enough to pull anybody out 'cause they got hit with toxic fumes and it knocked them off their feet.
All right, Hazmat protocols, everybody.
BAs go on and stay on.
Marjan, get the detector.
Mateo, TK, get the extraction equipment.
- Officer Reyes - Yes, sir? - Clear those people out now.
- Yes, sir.
(OMINOUS MUSIC) OWEN: Looks like they're still breathing.
JUDD: What do you think, it's carbon monoxide? MARJAN: It's not detecting any CO.
(DETECTOR SQUEAKING) Some kind of sulfate, 500 PPM.
JUDD: Where's it coming from? I think it's coming from him.
All right, everybody, let's secure this patient and get her out of there.
Captain I'd appreciate if you start with my team first.
He won't mind.
He's dead.
Can I come in? You better.
Doctors said that they were gonna keep you here for a few days for observation.
Oh, great.
So I brought you some clothes, a couple Harry Potters, and some peanut butter M&Ms.
(GASPS) My hero.
(CHUCKLES) They're saying they still don't know what caused your guy to become a human WMD.
I think I might.
The signs were in front of me the whole time.
Some arthritis medicines are sulfide-based.
They have a sort of a garlicky smell.
When we put him on O2 and used the defibrillators, we must have triggered some sort of a chemical reaction that converted the sulfides to sulfates.
And and basically, I created a poison cloud inside of the guy.
How were you supposed to know any of that? Because it's my job to.
(SOMBER MUSIC) I've been so wrong about so many things.
I can't start to be wrong on the job too.
Why do I feel like we're not talking about toxic guy anymore? Is this about Iris? She was going through something, Carlos, and I couldn't see it.
Or I chose not to.
My sister had secrets.
I found this in my mom's shed the night of the tornado.
The blue pickup truck.
A blue pickup truck.
I don't recognize any of those faces.
But maybe it's something to go on.
I'll look into it.
WOMAN (OVER PA): Paging Dr.
Paging Dr.
Thank you.
(PHONE DINGING) (UPBEAT ROCK MUSIC) Hey, Paul, your phone's blowing up.
It's that Josie girl.
She's got it bad.
Never peep another man's phone, Probie.
So you're just gonna ghost her? Wait, I'm confused.
She's hot, single, and she's into you.
It's like she's just waiting for you to ask.
Why don't you? - That's a fair question.
- Look, we're texting.
And she's cool.
Like, extremely cool.
Like, almost too-good-to-be-true cool.
So why wouldn't you ask her out? Well, maybe I wanna enjoy the fantasy of what could be before reality inevitably finds a way to disappoint.
That's grim.
Yeah, that's easy for you to say, Mr.
Charmed Existence.
When was the last time you tasted stone-cold rejection? - (WEIGHTS BANG) - (CLEARS THROAT) 116 days ago when I asked my soul mate to marry me, and he moved in with his trainer instead.
That's rough.
- I'm sorry.
- Damn, bro.
Damn, bro.
Yeah, that was not my best day.
But everybody gets kicked in the head.
You gotta get up and try again.
And also, the lady hand-delivered you a brisket.
I'm pretty sure that's a guaranteed yes.
One, two, three.
(GRUNTS) Yeah, maybe for the first date.
The scary part is landing that second one.
MATEO: I mean, you're cool, ripped, and a firefighter.
I mean, in my experience, everybody wants seconds of that.
Well, I appreciate that, Probie, but things are a little bit more complicated for me.
'Cause you don't know how she'll react when she finds out that you're trans.
Yeah, I usually meet women on dating apps.
You know, everything's in the profile, no surprises.
So get it out there.
Just tell her.
PAUL: Oh, now that's the risky part.
When it comes to sharing something that personal, kind of gotta go by the rule of threes.
Oh, like famous people, how they always die in threes.
No, man.
I gotta assume that for every one person that I've told, I've actually told three, because people can't help but to tell somebody else.
Straight, gay, bi, trans dating sucks, all right? There's no way around it.
So take her out, analyze the risk, and if it feels safe, take the leap.
SINGER: Been so long Hey, something smells good.
(ROMANTIC MUSIC) Well, welcome home, husband.
JUDD: Look at you.
Mmm-mmm! What's today? - It's Monday.
- JUDD: Uh-huh.
Am I forgetting something? Yeah, your manners.
You're not gonna say anything about this new dress? - Oh, yeah.
- (LAUGHS) Look, hey, whatever it costs, - it was worth every penny.
- Mm-hmm.
- For you.
- Roast on Monday.
That's a treat.
You got twice-baked potato.
With chives and real bacon.
You know, Mrs.
Ryder, if I didn't know any better, uh, I'd think you was trying to seduce me.
Are you are you serious? (SCOFFS) Well, I had to do something to get your attention, Judd.
I'm not gonna meet you at the door dressed in cellophane.
Now I'm just trying to picture that.
Please don't.
- Hey.
- (DISHES CLINKING) Wha why you mad? - I'm not mad.
- No, you're mad.
I am frustrated, though.
And I'm hurt.
You're hurt.
- Well, what'd I do? - It's not what you did, Judd.
It's what you don't do.
You don't look at me.
You never touch me.
- Look - No, let me finish.
When we first got married, sweetheart, you couldn't keep your hands off of me.
We couldn't keep our hands off of each other Even after a 24-hour shift.
Especially after a 24-hour shift.
Do you even know how long it's been since we've been intimate? Of course I know how long it's been.
You wanna throw it in my face? I'm not throwing anything in your face.
You know everything that I'm going through.
(STAMMERS) Yeah, I'm so just out of sorts with my own feelings, you know? It ain't about you.
And that's the problem.
It's never about me.
And maybe it should be, Judd, at least some of the time.
I have needs too, even if you don't feel up to it.
Grace hang on.
No, this dress is coming off.
It's itchy.
(ENGINE REVVING) ANDY: $15,000? That's highway robbery.
I'm sorry, but that is the price.
It wasn't the price the last time I brought Jericho in here to sell you a batch.
Not to be cruel, Andy, but the last time you had Jericho in here, that bull was alive and kickin'.
Now that he's passed, his stuff is worth a good deal more.
Lookit, he's moved already to the top shelf.
ANDY: Still can't believe he's gone.
DEREK: Jericho was one premium stud.
Please, Mr.
$10,000 for one straw.
It's all I got.
I'm sorry, Andy, I can't go a dime below 15 for a straw.
Simple case of supply and demand.
Now that the supply is gone, the demand for the seed of a championship bull like Jericho would be through the roof.
Jericho wasn't just livestock to me.
I I raised him up from a calf.
He had soul.
The love you feel for that animal is touching, son.
But I did not get to be the top stud supplier in the lower 48 by making emotion-based decisions.
Now you head on out of here.
Have yourself a nice night.
(EXHALES DEEPLY) (DOG BARKING) (DRAMATIC MUSIC) (DOGS BARKING) Only thing you have to do is make you get Bill Anderson's order ready to go out before (WORKER STAMMERS IN SHOCK) What the Hell We got fire! Harley, get the fire extinguisher! Go! Andy! (SIRENS WAILING) (SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC) Dispatch, tell medical we have civilians on scene and prep for minor injuries.
GRACE (OVER RADIO): Copy that, 126.
EMS is en route.
(EXPLOSION BOOMS) TK: What the Hell, whoa.
All right, everyone, fall back! - Fall back! - (CRACKING, BOOMING) OWEN: Judd! (ECHOING) Fall back! Fall back! OWEN: Judd! Whoa, whoa, Judd.
Take a breath, Judd.
You're righ? You okay? Yeah, I'm good.
Good to go.
Take cover! (BOOMING CONTINUES) Dispatch, we have explosions and steel cans raining down on us.
What exactly do they store in this facility? It's a breeding facility, Captain.
Ranchers take their cows there to be artificially inseminated.
So my guess is bull stuff.
- Bull stuff? - MATEO: Get down! (BOOMS) Yeah, they freeze the deposits in liquid nitrogen.
With all the heat, the gas inside must be expanding.
So What the hell are those things? Hot loads of bull stuff.
(LAUGHS) Oh, hey, welcome to Texas! (LAUGHS) GRACE: Captain, the owner of the facility, he said there's a visitor stuck in the storage room.
Roger that.
Captain, no! All right.
We got somebody trapped in there.
TK, Marjan, Paul, get on those lines now! Mateo, you're their spotter.
- Their spotter, sir? - Yes! - There's another one! - Just like that.
Hey! - You good to go? - Hell yeah, I'm good to go.
(LAUGHING) You think it's funny? I mean, yeah, don't you? I'm just trying to picture my obituary.
(TENSE MUSIC) OWEN: All right, we're in the main building.
Captain, be advised.
I'm told the man you're looking for likely started the fire.
You have any idea where we should be looking? "Last seen in the storage room, rear of the facility, southwest side.
" Roger that.
We're headed in.
JUDD: He's not over here, Cap.
(DRAMATIC MUSIC) These things are flying all over the place! - (BOOMS) - OWEN: Whoa, watch out.
(CLANGS, THUDDING) JUDD: He's not over here, Cap.
He's over there.
He must have passed out because of the smoke.
All right, Judd, we gotta get him up.
JUDD: Whatch up.
Calm down.
Calm down.
We're here to get you out.
- ANDY: I can't leave him.
- JUDD: Hey, hey, hey, Cap.
- ANDY: Jericho! - JUDD: Cap! ANDY: No, no, no! I can't leave without my canister.
- OWEN: Get him out of here! - JUDD: Come on! ANDY: Jericho! OWEN: We don't have time.
We gotta get you out of here.
ANDY: Jericho! No, no, no.
You don't understand.
I've just gotta grab that can.
(FLAMES ROAR) Coast is clear, Cap.
JUDD: All right, there, buddy.
Come over here and have a seat.
Should have left me in there.
I'm sorry, partner, but nobody dies today.
- (BOOMS) - Incoming! (BOOMS) That's gotta be Jericho.
He always had the most powerful stuff.
Apparently so.
(LAUGHING) Okay, looks like your ultrasound came back negative and your testosterone levels are perfect.
So it it's it's not the chemo? No, it definitely could be the chemo or it could be psychological or it could be just one of those things.
"One of those things"? Doc, this is the thing.
I I really need your help.
Well, problem is, with your cancer treatments, I can't prescribe the traditional ED pills.
I am not leaving here without a solution.
Well, in that case, I do have something that might fix your problem.
But I have to warn you, it's not for the faint of heart.
Doc, I put out fires for a living.
Try me.
Full disclosure, I am on the board of the company, but it's a miracle drug.
And it's a local application, so it shouldn't interact with other medications in your system.
- It's called Phalluxis.
- Sign me up.
Uh, how exactly do you administer that? Now, I know it looks scary, but I'll walk you through it.
Now when the mood is right, what you wanna do is swab down the unit like so with an alcohol pad.
Trust me, you don't want an infection down there.
Uh, no, I really don't.
Then you just take this, draw it up uh-huh then, turn the unit to the side (SYRINGE CLICKS) And inject it just above the base, empty the plunger, and then just hold it firm, steady pressure for a good four or five minutes.
- Four or five minutes.
- DR.
GRAY: Yep.
Oh, and make sure you don't squeeze it funny or sideways, because you run the risk of curvature.
(CURIOUS MUSIC) Curvature? Yeah, believe me, that is a bad scene.
And if you experience severe pain or uncontrolled bleeding, call 9-1-1.
Oh, that would go over well.
(PINS CLATTER) - PAUL: Really? - Oh! - Thank you, thank you.
- And Josie strikes again.
(LAUGHS) It was just lucky.
- It was just my lucky day.
- Yeah, okay.
You know, this was supposed to be a date, not a hustle.
(JOSIE LAUGHS) But it's the fourth frame.
You still got time to catch up.
- Stop whining.
- Oh, okay.
- (PINS CLATTER) - Maybe.
(HOPETON LEWIS' "TAKE IT EASY") LEWIS: No slipping, no sliding Oh.
Uh The smirk is unnecessary.
I did not smirk.
- You totally smirked.
- How did you notice? - (LAUGHING) - I I notice all.
I thought that bowling was a Midwest staple 'cause y'all can't go outside for half the year.
Okay, maybe I wasted my winters boxing instead of hitting the lanes, huh? Oh.
LEWIS: No need to hurry JOSIE: Okay, so then you have footwork.
That we can work with.
PAUL: Yeah.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
All right, here we go.
Let's go, come on.
JOSIE: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
May I? Buy a guy a drink first.
- Let's back it up.
- All right, okay.
- Back, back it up.
- So we going - Back it up.
- Mm-hmm.
Start here.
We're gonna take four steps, starting with the right.
We're gonna end with a slide step on the left that drops this right hip down, all right? - JOSIE: You ready? - PAUL: Uh-huh.
So I go one BOTH: Two, three four slide step.

(CLICKS TONGUE) Actually, I kind of love it.
(LAUGHS) Ugh, my last boyfriend couldn't stand it.
Well, he sounds like an idiot.
He was always ragging on me for being such a tomboy, but you can't help who you are, right? LEWIS: Take your time, take your time - Take your time - Believe me, I know.
- LEWIS: No need to hurry - Slide step.
- LEWIS: No, no, no - (PINS CLATTER) I'm starting to regret cleaning all that glitter - out of your eyes.

Okay, you being blind might have evened the playing field a little.
You keep telling yourself that, Paul.
So you think you a savage? - "Think"? - Okay, you know what? Next time, we're doing mini golf, all right? Because Tiger Woods ain't got nothing on me when it comes to putting into a clown head.
Okay, you are on.
(LAUGHS) You know, you're not like most of the guys around here.
You know, tonight was the most fun I've had since I got to Austin.
Well, tonight does not have to be over.
(ROMANTIC MUSIC) Um, you know, there's something we haven't talked about yet, Josie.
SINGER: Love is the ocean - Judd? - JUDD: Welcome home, wife.
Hang on.
Let me get that for ya.
(SOFT MUSIC) There we go.
- Come on, come on.
- What is this? Is that osso bucco? Uh, yes, ma'am.
I believe it is.
Judd, you hate osso bucco.
It ain't always about me.
Judd Hey, hang on.
Come here.
Grace, you are the one thing in this world that I can't live without.
And, um, the idea that I would make you doubt that, even for a minute, is a crime.
'Cause I don't just want you.
I need you.
Well, you got me, fool.
I mean, you can call me names if you want to.
- I can take it.
- (LAUGHS) I can.
Tried to outdo me, huh? Mm-hmm.
- GRACE: Mm-hmm.
- Mm-hmm.
- Well, you know the food's - gonna get cold.

What's up? Want me to make you a coffee? - Thanks.
- Espresso? Sure.
Here you go.
- Thank you.
- Mm-hmm.
(SIPS) How is it? You mean, how was it? Yeah, well, I mean, I I didn't wanna ask, but - We bowled.
- You bowled.
We bowled, and I got a 54.
Nice, man.
No, that is actually terrible.
Sorry, I I don't know anything about bowling.
Well, apparently, little kids bowled in the 60s.
- So - Oh, well, then you should be - very ashamed of yourself.
- Maybe.
I'm guessing it went well.
Can we talk? I am so embarrassed at how I reacted last night.
I owe you an apology.
You don't owe me anything, Josie.
I couldn't sleep last night.
I can't stop thinking about you.
I really like you, Paul.
You mean "liked.
" No, I mean "like.
" Present tense.
(CHUCKLES) You're thoughtful and charming, and sexy as hell.
You're literally the man of my dreams.
But only in your dreams, huh? (SIGHS) I guess I'm just not as evolved as I thought I was.
I'm not a terrible person.
I know you're not.
I really do like you.
I just don't think that this is something I can get past.
I'm sorry.
It was nice to meet you, Paul Strickland.
Nice to meet you too, Josie.
This uni is melt-in-your mouth.
(UTENSILS CLATTER) I didn't know Texas could do sushi like this.
Well, technically, the chef is from Okinawa, but I'm glad you dig it.
And sake.
So floral and airy.
You ever had days where food just tastes better? Okay, I think I know what's going on here.
Somebody got a visit from the boner fairy.
Oh, no, no, not not by a long shot.
Then are you on drugs? Uh, not those kinds.
So what happened? (MELLOW POP MUSIC PLAYING) I was about to inject my "little buddy" with a very large needle.
Oh, God.
And I realized you were right.
I was putting way too much pressure on the situation.
Well, it sounds like you've had some significant growth over the past 48 hours.
Should I rephrase that? (LAUGHS) No, no, no.
I'm good.
I'm good.
I'm Zen.
And I have to say, I'm kind of loving it.
Buckle up, because this ahi 's gonna blow your mind.
Do you wanna know a brain trick? When you cut off one sense, you intensify the other ones.
So close your eyes and open your mouth.
(SMACKS LIPS) Is it true that sushi is an aphrodisiac? It's yeah, it's been said.
But it couldn't have kicked in this quickly, could it have? (GASPS) Oh.
You mean - Oh, yeah.
- No kidding? Yes.
I think we should get our food to go.
Sushi doesn't travel well.
Screw it.
