You know, different colors.
- No, I'm talking fabrics, Nick.
Fabrics.
See, a lot of people think that wool is the way to go, but if you want to get a nice variety of suits on a budget And I'm just getting that you don't make as much as the weeknight guy.
Oh, that guy is good.
Then you need to think about a nice polyester blend.
Have you ever heard of teteron? - Um, what? Wait, what was that again? - No, teteron.
It's the new thing.
It's nice and soft and holds its shape.
Come on in; I'll fit you with a cheap man's suit.
- Hey, man, check it out, I am going to go check on the dessert right now.
And I'll be right back.
- All right, but think about teteron.
- What was that again? - Teteron? - Okay, I'll be right back.
Hey, babe, can you come here a minute? - Honey, dessert will be ready in a few minutes.
- You got to get me out of here.
This dude is driving me crazy.
- What's he doing? - He won't quit talking about teteron.
- What's teteron? - It's this - Nick, how are you and Steve getting along back there? - Oh, me and Steve, you know, it is what it is, you know? Couple fellows just kicking back.
You know what I mean? Hey, we about to get into the apple pie a la mode like guys do.
- You know, Suzanne, we should really go out sometime after work.
- You know, that sounds nice, but, you know, between work and the kids and Nick, I never feel like I have any time for myself.
- Sounds like what you need to do is get prioritized.
- Oh, no, you are talking to Ms.
organization in the flesh.
- I didn't say organized, I said prioritized, as in priority number one: Massage.
Number two: Weekly mani-pedis.
Number three: Whatever you need to do for you.
- Wow.
That sounds like a dream.
- It doesn't have to be, Suzanne.
Your children aren't babies, and they have a father.
Would it kill them if you weren't here sometimes? - Oh, mm.
That is good pie.
And your wife made that? - Yeah.
- Mm, oh, that's nice.
Yeah.
That is nice.
Mm, mm, mm.
You know who else makes a good pie? The pie factory.
Yeah, y'all should go.
You know the cheesecake factory? It's like that, but with pie.
Oh, they got all sorts of pie.
They got apple.
They got blueberry.
They got the lemon meringue.
Ooh.
- You think we need to check on the girls? - No, no, no, she'll come get me when she's done.
Ooh, got a surprise for you.
- For me? - Uh, yeah.
See, I saw your game box up there, and while you were in the house, I went through your games.
I didn't see anything good, so I brought something in.
- Usher's dance retribution? [Thumping hip-hop music] - oh oh Where you at, Nick? You can't handle all of this.
[Clucking] - Hey.
- Hey, Lindsay, is your dad around? - He's upstairs.
Who's that? He looks familiar? - That is the point guard who played what was perhaps the worst game in the history of professional sports last night.
- Oh, my God, that's where I know him from.
That's what's-his-face.
He goes out with that girl on "the real hoochies of hoop.
" I'm surprised he was even able to play at all.
- Why is that? - They just broke up, and, like, he was totally into her, and every time they break up, he gets drunk or arrested or does something crazy.
He was devastated.
It was all over Twitter.
- And you think he didn't play well because of that? - I don't know.
- What does Twitter say about this guy? - Let's see.
- Nothing.
He's not on Twitter.
- Huh, I'd play him.
- Why? - Because he's in Portland.
I mean, it's been raining there for a week.
He's probably had nothing to do but shoot baskets.
I mean, that's what we do at recess when it rains.
- A little crazy, but I think I'm gonna use that.
Thanks, fun size.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- Hi.
- So how was dinner with the double dates? - Like being in an overturned car in a snow storm.
No, actually I take that back.
If I was in an overturned car, at least somebody would be trying to rescue me.
- Nick, it wasn't that bad.
- Baby, we played Usher's dance retribution for two hours.
Look, I'm a grown man.
What do I look like playing Usher's dance retribution? - Well, I have the account, so maybe we won't have to do that again.
- Oh, I see.
It's all about that account.
Well, if you want to do something with her again, you are on your own.
Look, I am done with that dude.
[Phone ringing] - Hey, Martin, can you grab that, please? - Ooh, Steven Davis.
- No.
- Oh.
Hello? Why, yes, he is here.
One sec.
I think he likes you.
- This is Nick.
Hey, Steve, what's up? Yeah.
Oh, yeah, I don't know, man.
I got to work.
Right.
What? New edition? A reunion show? Ronny, Bobby, Ricky, Mike, and Johnny? Uh, okay.
Look, let me check on something.
And I'll see if I can switch something around.
All right, cool.
- So what was that all about? - Well, he got tickets to a new edition reunion show, and he invited me.
- And you said no because you'd rather stick pins in your eyes because you don't want to spend another moment with that, dude, right? - No, it's new edition.
See, I'm gonna get something out of this.
- Thought we were gonna watch the game together.
And we talked about it when I was over here last night.
- We did? - Yeah.
I said, "are we gonna watch the game on Thursday," and you said, "uh-huh," and I said, "I'm gonna need a verbal commitment.
" - Oh, and I said, "kiss my" - Oh, yeah.
- So if I ask you something, will you tell me the truth? - No.
I'm gonna lie to you, like I always have because that's what our friendship is based on, deception and mistrust.
Oh, I'm sorry you had to find out like this.
- Do you think I spend too much time with Nick and the kids.
- Yes, yes, I do.
I think you should spend as little time with them as you possibly can, 'cause isn't that the whole purpose of having a family, so you can try to get away from them? - Are you through? - Suzanne, I'm pregnant.
- Gigi.
- Again.
- Gigi.
- Do you know anyone that wants to have Puerto Rican babies? - Gigi.
- Okay.
[Chuckling] What's with all the stupid questions? - It's Danielle.
You know, she's just She's so fabulous.
And she just makes me feel like - What, you have a husband and two kids? - Yes, but that's no reason I should deprive myself of everything.
- Now, who says you're depriving yourself? - She said I don't make myself a priority.
- Really? - Yes.
- And that bothered you? - A little.
- Mm-Hmm.
All right, so if you went out, do you really think everyone would be dead when you got back? - Yes.
- Suzanne.
- I'm serious.
Gigi, I don't know what they would do without me.
- Well, maybe you're afraid to find out.
- What's that supposed to mean? - All I'm saying is, if Ray j can take a day off, so can you.
- Hey, babe.
- Hi.
Kevin, Lindsey, can you come down here, please? Nick, I've made a decision.
- Um, what the - I need you to listen to this.
You know I love you and the kids, but sometimes I feel like I don't do enough for myself.
So for the next couple of days, for all intensive purposes, I'm not here.
- Ooh.
- What's up, mom? - You called us? - Uh, your mom's not here.
- Well, I was just explaining to your dad that I really need to take some time and spend it on myself.
So for the next couple of days, for all intensive purposes, I'm not here.
- Cool.
So if Lindsey starts to get on my nerves, and I punch in here in the eye - I'm not here.
- And after he punches me in the eye and I get a big can of soup and I bop him upside the head - I'm not here.
- Well, after she bops me upside the head and I get a pot of hot boiling water and dump it on her head - Not here.
- So after he dumps the hot pot of boiling water on my head and my skin starts to fall off from third degree burns, and in a fit of rage with my last dying breath, I choke him out - I'm not here.
- Wow.
I like this.
- You're not here.
- You got it.
- Awesome.
- Well, so since you're not here, is it okay if I bring my white girl by and we eat sweet potato pound cake and cuddle up on the couch and watch the game? - Well, you're lucky I'm not here, because if I were, I'd punch your white girl in the eye, get that big can of soup and bop you upside the head, pour a pot of hot boiling water on both of you, and while your skin was melting off from third degree burns, in a fit of rage, I'd choke you both out and then eat your pound cake.
- I take that as a no.
Ding! All: 51! - What is all this, and why are we meeting here? Look, the show starts in 20 minutes.
- Oh, we just have to wait for everybody else.
- Everybody else? Why? You got our tickets, right? - Oh, uh, well, not exactly.
We just need another 51 people.
- For what? - See, look, I got a croupon.
It's like a ticket that's a coupon.
I just need 51 more people before we can use it.
- A croupon? All: 50! - Yeah, we're almost there.
- What happens if 50 more people don't show up? - Hmm? [Thumping hip-hop music] - Guys, this information you have been giving me has been awesome.
I'm one day away from winning this bet.
- So what do we get for helping you? - My eternal gratitude? And ten bucks.
Apiece.
All right, now, what information do you have on this guy? - The kind that's gonna cost you - How about I give you 20 now and 20 when I win? - Ooh, I got one.
How about you give us 40 now, and if you lose, that's your problem? - You know I don't like you, right? - Ooh, look, here he is.
He says, "tonight I'm gonna be on fire.
" - Good enough for me.
He's in.
- Ooh, I wouldn't start that guy.
- What are you, crazy? He's one of the best players in the league.
- Yeah, but it's his birthday.
Who wants to work on their birthday? - Dude is averaging almost 30 points a game.
- Not tonight, he isn't.
All he'll be thinking about is birthday cake.
Ooh, ooh, you know what I'm thinking about? - What, what, what? - The 40 bucks you owe us.
- Pure evil.
[Doorbell rings] - Hey, Steve.
- Nick, there must be something wrong with your phone.
I've been trying to call you all day.
- What's wrong? - [Sobbing] I think Danielle's cheating on me.
[Sobbing] - Well, I'm gonna go get us some drinks.
Both: No.
- Don't do that.
Whatever you do, don't pay for anything.
It's ladies night.
- Then how are we gonna get drinks? - I got it.
[Sighs seductively] - The gentlemen at that table sent these other.
- Oh, thank you so much.
- Thank you.
Thank you.
- Thank you.
[Giggles] - See? Isn't this fun? - Yeah, it's really nice.
- All right, what's wrong? - Nothing's wrong, it's just that, you know, Thursday night's usually movie night at the house.
- Oh, Suzanne, see, that's your problem.
You need to establish an identity outside of your family.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
- Is that how it works for you and Steve? - Oh, absolutely.
He has his life, and I have mine.
- Mm.
- Okay, well, I guess I am kind of hungry.
- Ooh.
[Giggles] I love this.
Okay.
You might want to move your drinks.
[Sighs] Oh.
Oh.
Ooh, thank you.
Thank you.
- [Clapping] You're good.
- Thank you.
- Hey, man, maybe it's not what you think.
Did you ask her about it? - Man, I tried, but she just keeps brushing me off.
I mean, every week it's a manicure, pedicure, hair, massage.
I mean, who's she doing all that for? - Well, I mean, maybe when she comes home tonight, you can sit her down and tell her you ne to talk to her.
- She went out tonight.
- Tomorrow.
- She has pilates tomorrow.
- The day after that.
- That's when she gets her hair done.
- The day after that.
- Face peel.
- Look, man, that's on you, okay? Just find some time.
You can't be guessing about something like that.
Did she do something to make you believe that? - Well, not specifically, but sometimes you can You can just tell.
- Get up.
Go talk to your wife.
- [Sobbing] You're a good friend, Nick.
That's a nice shirt.
About 100% cotton? [Sobbing] - [Giggling] - See, wasn't that a fun time? - You know what, yes, I had a good time.
But honestly, Danielle, I don't think I could do that every day.
- It's not impossible.
- [Sighs] Okay, Danielle, I want to talk to you about something.
Now, I don't want you to take this the wrong way, but I was a little put off by you the other day because, well, I have kids and you don't, and it just seemed really easy for you to talk about spending all this time on yourself when it's just you and Steve.
And it's not the same thing.
- I get it.
But just because you have a husband and kids doesn't you have to lose yourself.
- Well, that's just it, Danielle.
I'm not lost.
I like my husband.
I like my kids.
And truthfully, it gets a little hectic at times, but without them, I don't feel like me.
- Oh, Suzanne, I think Steve is cheating on me! [Sobbing] - Okay, Danielle, why would you say that? - I go out.
I'm always working to keep myself looking good for him.
I look good.
Don't I look good? - You look great, yes.
- And when I come home, it's like it doesn't seem to matter to him.
He just stays in his man cave, playing Usher's dance retribution.
- Okay, Danielle, listen.
Listen.
Okay, you just need to talk to your husband.
You know, just sit down with him and find out what's going on tonight.
- I can't.
- Why not? - He went out tonight.
- How about tomorrow? - I have pilates.
- The next day? - Getting my hair done.
- The day after that? - Chemical face peel.
- Okay, well, maybe the face peel can wait.
- I could skip the face peel.
But I must have pilates.
- Hey, congratulations, man.
I heard Lebron James scored 48 points last night.
You must have won your bet.
- No, I lost.
Didn't play him.
- You didn't play king James? Why? - 'Cause your son told me it was his birthday.
Decided to go with Mike Williams instead.
- Who is Mike Williams? - Yeah.
- Hey, Martin.
Ignore what I told you earlier.
I had the wrong Mike Williams on Twitter.
Turns out the guy I was looking at was a stunt man.
He was literally on fire.
[Laughing] My bad.
- [Chuckling] Right, see you.
You know this is your fault.
Now I'm not gonna get those signed sneakers.
- My fault? - You were spending so much time with your boyfriend that I had to go to your children for advice.
Advice that was based on gossip, rumor, and pointless speculation.
You need to end this today.
- I know.
I need to break up with him.
[Knocking on door] Come in.
Hey, Steve.
Hey, man.
I got all your messages.
I was just about to call you.
My hands were just - [Chuckling] You know what? I was really upset when I came over yesterday.
- It's okay.
It's all good.
- [Clearing throat] - Oh, uh, Martin, Steve.
Steve, Martin.
- What's up? Well, I should get going.
Do it.
End it now.
Steve.
- Martin.
- Hey, so, uh, what's going on? - You know what? Everything's okay.
Danielle and I decided to work everything out.
- Oh-ho-ho, that's great news.
That's good.
Hey, man, look, I want to talk to you about something.
- Hey, you know, before you say anything, can I go first? You know, Nick, right now I need to concentrate on my marriage, so that means there's gonna be less time for us.
- Excuse me? - Yeah, you know, it's me, not you.
- I agree.
It's definitely you.
- So as to, uh, you know, ease the pain, I brought you a little something.
Don't open it now.
Open it later, you'll thank me.
- Hey, Steve.
- There she is.
[Growls] [Chuckles] You two are good people.
Good people.
- Thank you.
- If you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go spend some time with my woman.
[Chuckles] Ooh.
When you're ready for some teteron.
[Both laugh] - Oh, my God.
Okay, all right, look.
That is finally over.
- Honey, I'm so sorry.
I had no idea.
- Well, the next time you decide to take me on a grown folks play date, don't.
- Usher's dance retribution? - Oh, no.
- Are you any good at this? Well.
I can beat you.
That's for sure.
Oh yeah? [Thumping hip-hop music]
