I got all dressed up, even took my Gucci shoes out of their box, and you know where this man took me to? Coffee.
- What's wrong with coffee? - Coffee sucks.
Because at coffee, you talk, and that's boring.
"What are your likes? What are your dislikes?" It's like an interrogation.
You know, if I wanted to talk, I'll get on the Internet in a chat room like everyone else.
- The nerve of some people, trying to sit down and get to know you.
What is wrong with these men? - Right? - You want you want an exciting man.
- Mm.
- Somebody mysterious.
- That's right.
- And sexy.
- Work it.

- Hello.
- And a wife and some kids - No, come on.
- And 15 other mistresses and another identity.
- All right, no.
The point is, he could at least taken me to happy hour.
I want to be able to get dressed up, have a cocktail, have and some hors d'oeurves, not be surrounded by a whole bunch people looking for free wi-fi.
- Suzanne? - [Gasps] Tam? Oh! Oh, my gosh, you look amazing.
This is Tamara hensley.
We went to High School together.
- We were best friends.
- Cool.
- And who is this? - Yes.
This is my daughter, this is Lindsay.
- It's so nice to meet you.
- You are so beautiful.
- Thank you.
- Is this the only one? - No, she has a brother, Kevin.
Oh, but have a seat.
Tam, this is so exciting.
You're getting engaged and we get to help plan the party.
- Yay.
- [Chuckling] - Okay, so are we wearing white? - Yes, we are.
- All right.
- Well, tell us about him.
- Oh, girl, I don't where to start.
I have waited so patiently for my prince.
But it was worth it.
[Chuckles] He's awesome.
- Oh, and I bet he didn't take you to coffee on your first date either.
- Uh, we met at happy hour.
- See? I'm not crazy.
- All right, well, tam, why don't you look through these dessert ideas.
And Lindsay, you take notes.
- Okay.
So what was my mom like when she was a teenager? - I was an angel.
[Laughter] - We had a lot of fun together.
- What kind of fun? - The same kind you're going to deny having when you grow up.
- I don't know what you mean.
- Well, compared to now, we were probably a lot more tame than we think.
- That's so weird.
'Cause she's kind of strict now.
- Uh, I am not strict.
I'm cautious.
It's a different world out there.
- Amen to that.
[Chuckles] But we did our thing, didn't we, Suzanne? - Whoo, girl, if those school walls could talk.
- Talk? Please talk.
- Take some notes.
- When actors, tennis players and models turn pro, they're just kids.
So why should basketball be any different? I'm Nick Kingston-persons.
Peace out.
How was that? - 2:30.
Perfect.
- It was good.
- Yeah, Stuart Scott better start looking at retirement homes.
- Thanks.
- Kevin, can tell me about this school dance you're going to? - Uh, it's on Saturday.
It's at school.
And it's a dance.
- He's crushing on Melanie.
I think it's a mistake.
Everyone goes for the pretty girl.
It cuts down your chances.
- Sometimes you get the pretty girl.
I did it with Kevin's mom.
- You did it with Kevin's mom? - Hey, dude, don't talk about my mom.
- It's a shot, okay? - I want to, but I got no game.
- Seriously, like, zero.
- None.
- Nada.
- My game is so bad, I could play for the clippers.
- How could you have game? You're just starting out.
Game is learned through trial and error.
- True, last week, I learned that a girl won't talk to you if you have a booger in your nose.
- Yeah.
- It's distracting.
- Important lesson: Men with game always dress the part.
What are you wearing to the dance? - This.
- You slept in that.
Plus, I can see what you ate last night.
- You mean last week.
- Oh, right.
- [Chuckles] So just after six months, Robbie shows up to my school with these balloons and proposes in front of my class.
- Oh, my God, that is so romantic.
Inexpensive, but romantic.
- Tam, what is your married name going to be? - Mrs.
Robert Purcell.
[Pencil tip cracks] - Ooh.
[Chortles] Wow.
Did you see that? This pencil just kind of It snapped, so What's the number? It's number one.
You know what, we need some number two pencils.
So Suzanne, can you help me find some number two pencils? - Okay.
- Yeah, okay.
[Chuckles] - So Lindsay, Lindsay, Lindsay.
You're so big.
And your brother, he must be, what, 18, 19 by now? - What? No, he's 12.
- 12.
- What is wrong with you, man? - Would you really want me to create an engagement party for the man I should have married? - No, I wouldn't.
- Then replace me on this job, Suzanne.
- What? Why? - You don't remember Robert Purcell? - No.
- I dated him for almost 31/2 weeks.
- Okay, but you broke up with him.
- Only six months ago.
And now he's marrying Her.
Uh Excuse me, got to go.
- [Sighs] [Both groan] - Whoo.
- Man, shopping - Uh-uh-uh.
Going to the mall.
- Right, going to the mall is exhausting.
- That's why black women are so strong.
They can stay at the mall all day, just walking around buying stuff.
- How long did it take you to understand women? - I still don't.
But I know I don't.
And that, my son, is the secret.
- Well, if it's a secret, how did you find out? - Listen, the point is, you need to embrace your ignorance and just do what they say.
'Cause a woman is like one of those thousand-piece Jigsaw puzzles, and the top half is all sky.
And every time you find a piece that fits, the woman will take a pair of scissors and cut the tip off.
- Because women are crazy? - Exactly.
- So what do you do? - Just be the best you you can be.
It's like my video blog.
I look my best.
I find a great topic to talk about.
I got a great sign-off - Hey, let's look at the stuff we bought? - Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
What was that? - What? I just wan to look at the stuff.
You know, those pants were really interesting.
- So you just gonna leave out there like that, huh? I mean, if I had something on my face, you wouldn't say nothing? You'd just let me stand there and be embarrassed? Come on, man, you know something's wrong.
You feel something.
Tell what is it? - Okay, did you already post it? - No, not yet.
- Okay, it was just the big "peace out.
" - What's wrong with that? - It's old.
- I thought it was good.
- That's because you're old.
- Go try your clothes on.
- Oh, yeah, I forgot.
- What? - Peace out.
- I don't understand why you're so upset.
You had that man, and you broke up with him.
- I know.
Exactly.
What's wrong with me? - Nothing.
He wasn't the man for you.
- Well, he's marrying her.
What does she have that I don't? - Waterproof mascara? - Not funny.
- A little funny.
Gigi, you did not want him.
- Yeah, but I don't want her to have him either.
I mean, I'm a very petty woman.
I want every man I've ever broken up with to be destroyed and never recover.
But if he must recover, it should take years.
Like Mike Tyson.
- Okay.
Go home.
And if you can't bear to come in tomorrow, I will understand.
I'll get someone to sit in.
- Great, now you're replacing me too.
- That is not what I meant.
- Yeah.
- Hey, Gigi.
- Yeah.
- Bye, Gigi.
- Yeah.
- Should I ask? - No.
- Cool.
- Just like that? - Just like that.
- Should I ask? - No.
- Cool.
Oh, it looks like somebody went to the barbershop.
- And the mall.
- All right.
Are you ready for the dance? - Well, are you still gonna teach me some dance moves? - Yeah.
- If he tries to teach you the Harlem shake, let me know.
- What's the Harlem shake? - It's your mother's favorite dance.
Aw, you like that.
I know do.
[Laughs] We gonna start with something simple, and then we'll see how it goes.
- What about slow dancing? - Well, here is your first pointer: When slow dancing with a lady, there should be at least a phone book's distance between you.
- Okay.
What's a phone book? No, I'm serious.
Is it, like, a book with pictures of phones.
- Come on, little man.
We got work to do.
Get the rhythm in your walk, man.
Get the rhythm in your walk.
- That's right, smooth.
- Like Obama.
- [Chuckles] - Hey, sweetheart.
- Hi.
- So did you have a good time today? - Yeah, it was fun.
Can I ask you a question? - Yeah, sure, what is it? - Do I have an older brother? - Do you wha wha What kind of question is that? No.
Of course not.
And who said that? - Tam sort of - Sort of? How do you sort of say I have another child? - Well, she didn't say you did.
She just asked me if I had an older brother.
And she's known you for a long time, so I was just wondering why she would think that.
- How should I know why tam thinks the crazy things that she does? But I tell you what, I'm going to find out.
- Hey, girl.
- I'm sorry I'm late.
- Where's the crew? - No crew today.
- Is everything okay? - No, not really.
Tam, what did you say to Lindsay yesterday? - About? - About her having an older brother.
- Look, Suzanne, you and I both know you got skeletons.
- Skeletons? - Yeah.
And a couple of our skeletons share the same bones.
- Andre.
- [Chuckles] - Ooh, now, that's somebody I haven't thought about in a long time.
- I guess not.
So was it true? Oh, what he said about why you left? - Partially.
I did have a scare, but that's all that it was.
- [Scoffs] Well, we didn't hear that part of it.
I mean, the next thing I knew, you had left in the middle of the semester, and I didn't hear from you ever again.
Look, I just assumed that you had the baby.
And when you mentioned that Lindsay had a brother, I just, you know, two plus two.
Girl, I'm sorry.
- No, no, no.
I'm sorry.
You had to come in here and admit that you did it with Andre.
Before that, I used to have respect for you.
- Oh, no, you will not go there, okay? I know your boyfriends, and you have not always been this cute.
- Well, I am now.
- Oh, well, yes, you are.
- [Laughs] - So why didn't you keep in touch? We were best friends.
- Tam, I think I just wanted to forget how close I came to ruining my life.
- Looks like you made out okay.
- I did.
You too.
Six months, and you got a ring on it.
- Yes, I do, a ring on it, a wedding on it, and about to put a house and kids on it.
- [Laughs] - Holla if you hear me.
Okay? Oh, my God, did you get jumped? - Gigi, I told you you could stay home.
- No, I did not get jumped.
I have a confession to make.
- You jumped somebody? - No, nobody got jumped.
Tamara, I'm so sorry.
- You ain't about to jump me, are you? - No.
It's about Robert.
Robbie, your fiancee.
And before you ask, no, he did not jump me, and he I did not jump him.
I used to go out with him.
Right before you.
And apparently, after I broke up with him, he started seeing you.
And now you're getting married, and I hated you both, and I know it's not right and I don't want those bad vibes out in the world, so congratulations.
I'm just sorry.
I just didn't want that skeleton in the closet.
- Hmm, looks like there's a lot of that going around.
- So I guess I'll just go finish drinking and crying.
- Wait, Gigi.
[Sighs] I'm only telling you this because you're a decent person.
When I first met Robbie, he was crushed.
He thought that he had met the woman of his dreams, and he didn't think he was good enough for her.
So she left him.
And I told him everything happened for a reason.
And just because he wasn't good enough for her Well, you Doesn't mean he wasn't good enough for me.
So Thank you.
For letting him go.
- [Chortles] [Giggles] Damn, I want to hate you.
[Giggles] But I can't.
You've inspired me.
I'm going to go and have coffee with a man.
[Laughs] Okay.
Thank you.
- [Sighs] That was amazing.
- I know.
- How could you open up to her like that and tell her you were willing to settle for a man who wasn't good enough for her? - Because it wasn't true.
- What? - He thought she was nuts.
Listen, she seems nice enough, but I'm not dating her.
Anyway, I don't want her walking around thinking that my husband is her soul mate or nothing crazy like that.
I'd rather her tell the story of how she kicked him to the curb and I dragged him out the gutter.
It's be easier for everybody.
- All right, so you might be balling now, but this may be all the money you ever make.
What'll happen when the air comes out? I'm Nick Kingston-persons.
Boo-yah! - No.
- What was wrong with that? - "Boo-yah.
" - That's not how I did it.
- That's how you did it.
- What am I supposed to say? - I don't know, how about, "I'm Nick Kingston-persons; see you next time?" - "See you next time?" This is not a story circle.
It's sports commentary.
I'll think of something.
How are your dance moves coming? - Good.
Give me some music.
[Rhythmic dance music] Triple time.
Double time.
Triple time.
- How about no more time? Look, that's not dancing.
That's "dance dance revolution.
" This is dancing.
[Rhythmic dance music] - I can't do all that stuff anyway.
Why can't you show me something simple? - Okay, look.
Just do like this? Try that.
There you go.
- Hey, that's better.
- There you go.
Side to side.
There you go.
Come on.
Don't lose it.
Keep it.
Keep it.
There you go.
Oh.
Once we get you in that outfit, it's gonna be on and poppin'.
On and poppin'.
- No.
- Just shut up and dance.
Hey, Troy.
- Hi, Mr.
Kingston-persons.
[Door closes] What are you doing? - Dancing.
- No, really.
- Dancing.
Check it out.
- Well, um, that's really bad.
You just set black people back two years.
- I just - Years.
- Sweetheart? - Hi.
- Hi.
Can I talk to you for a second.
- Sure.
- I spoke to tam.
- What'd she say? - Well, it's less about what she said and more about what I didn't say.
The reason that tam thought that you had an older brother was because my junior year of High School, I had a pregnancy scare.
- You were having sex your junior year? - Yes.
Once or twice.
- You're not going to tell me how many times you did, are you? - No.
But I will tell you that it was one time too many.
And that one time could have changed the course of my whole life.
Now, I don't want you to go through what I went through, but I don't want you thinking that I'm a hypocrite either.
- I understand.
Thanks, mom.
- Goodnight, sweetie.
- Does dad know you were out there like that? - I was not "out there like that.
" - Yeah, you were.
Just a little.
- So? - We've got the house to ourselves for a couple of hours.
- Do you have any ideas? - Just a couple.
- Hey, mom.
- Hi, guys.
- Hi, Mr.
and Mrs.
Kingston-persons.
- Dude, you guys are supposed to be at the dance.
What happened? - Well, Kevin started dancing, and they thought he was having a seizure, so they called the ambulance.
The paramedics came and said he would be fine, but insisted he go home.
- Aw, I'm sorry, Kevin.
- It's okay.
It wasn't much fun anyway.
- What is that outfit? - Whoa, whoa, what's wrong with the outfit? - He looks like he stepped into a time machine and came back as Usher.
- The guy at the store said this is what all the kids are wearing.
- The guy at the store took your money.
He looks like will.
I.
Ain't.
- Look, it ain't that bad.
- It is that bad.
Baby, I'm sorry.
I will never let your father dress you again.
Now, what was the dance that looked a seizure? - Oh.
- [Giggling] - Triple time.
- Oh, that's nice.
Did your father teach you that? - Yes.
- Hmm.
All right, well, I think you guys should probably go to sleep, so Troy, good night.
- Good night, Mr.
and Mrs.
Kingston-persons.
And for the record, I enjoy Usher.
Especially the confessions era.
You have good taste.
- Thanks.
- Hey.
- So how was coffee? - Black and cheap.
Just like him.
I'm hungry.
