Yeah.
I could totally get breakfast.
I want bacon! And eggs.
Um, here's the thing, though.
I'm a vegan.
So if we can go somewhere where I can eat, too, that would be awesome.
Oh, yeah.
I'm cool with that.
I I'm always thinking about being vegan.
Yeah, you just, like You don't See I mean, every vegan goes through that.
I feel like So you, like, know about veganism? Yeah, I'm, like, there in my head.
Just gotta take what's in my head and put it on my plate.
Oh, so you're like trying to be a vegan? 'Cause if you're trying to be a vegan, I could show you some shit, some, like, videos online that will make you a vegan.
Like, terrible, terrible shit that will haunt your dreams.
Like, NC-17 animals, you know? - Not like sex stuff, but like - That's I'm like I know what it's gonna be, and I'm not ready to see that.
You would be transformed like Cinderella into a vegan if you saw these videos.
They are I mean, I get it.
I don't need to see it to get it.
You know, like, I already know.
It's just about breaking a habit, like I don't need to see Passion of the Christ to understand what happened to the Christ.
Like I'm gonna pee.
When you were, like, in eighth grade, did you get what you were gonna be when you grow up? Uh, yeah.
'Cause I'm still waiting on being Mayor of San Francisco, you know? Living in Chicago might be a deal-breaker for that one.
Yeah, I don't think it works like that.
- You wanted to be Mayor of San Francisco? - I didn't want to be.
That's what the class deemed me.
- Oh, they picked it for you! - In eighth grade.
I think in kindergarten I told, like, at my graduation that I wanted to be, like, a garbage pickup foreman.
- You had a kindergarten graduation? - Yes, definitely.
I'm saying all of the wrong things.
- I'm not, like, an alien.
- I know, I'm sorry.
I know.
- What is wrong? - I know I'm treating you like you are.
- You gotta let me get used to it.
- It's fine.
First time with a vegan, you gotta just let me I feel like you're defining me by being a vegan when, like No! There's so many other things.
I also like to play catch outside.
I don't know if that's a defining characteristic.
I don't even know what that means.
- What do you mean? - Just with balls? You've never played catch? Okay.
I'm gonna tell you something that I've literally never told anybody before.
- Give it to me.
- Okay.
When I was younger, and I swear, like, I was, like six or seven, so I didn't know what I was doing I'm so curious what's about to come out of your mouth.
We had these, like, these I don't even know where we would find these.
There would just be these giant frogs.
I don't even know what to call them.
They were big frogs, like the size of my palm.
And me and my uncles would just, like take the frogs and we would toss them, and their bodies would just, like, splatter.
What? What? What? You would just kill these frogs for fun? Yeah.
'Cause their bodies were just, like, blah.
And we were just, like, blah! - Oh, my God.
- Yeah.
And then we would, like, dissect them and, like, see their body parts.
- And you think - Now you're judging me.
- Yes, absolutely.
- I wanted to make it even, and I knew you were gonna react like that, - so I had to make myself feel better.
- You made that up for me? I didn't make it up.
I wish I'd made it up.
It's a really fucked up story, actually.
- You never told anybody that? - No, it's really bad.
God, I'm feeling a mixed feelings of horror and honor - for you telling me that.
- I know.
I feel like you think I'm Gandhi, and I still do not-great things.
Well, you're Gandhi and I'm a frog murderer, so Text me.
We'll bike.
Did you just use the L-word? No, look, we were in the concert, this crowd of people, and it's like, that's the person I locked eyes with through all of these bodies? You know? Like, outta, like That's - That is so cute.
- That's just how it happened, and if it sounds like love, then it sounds like love.
Oh, my God! Hello, sir.
Do you have a minute to talk about, uh, women's rights? Excuse me, miss.
Do you have a moment? - No, sorry.
- Please? - Just one signature from the neighborhood.
- Oh, yeah.
That would be so great.
Thank you.
What if I had texted you in the moment that you were at that concert and you looked up and saw your soul mate? Like, that would have sucked if you read that text and you were, like, and you were reading about homework.
Do you know how many people end up missing, like, "the one" because they were texting? - Oh, my God.
- That is Excuse me.
Can I have a second of your time? Sorry.
To talk about women's reproductive rights? We're trying to open up a center.
It's a center right across the street.
I want to paint each other's nails and, like, watch stupid romantic comedies, and drink mimosas, and and, like, laugh and just have, like, a ladies thing, you know? - International Ladies Day.
- Yeah, we can do, like, a group text.
Like, I could make a Facebook page.
The government will not be paying for the abortions.
It'll be all donation-based and non-profits.
What have we got in here? The Temptations? Please don't mess with my man.
I love 'em.
- How many signatures you got? - I've got - Uh 24.
- Learn from the master.
Oh, my God.
That is so funny.
Walter's story, I think, has to do with masculinity, defined partly as somebody capable of overt physical action and dominance with little regard to what we might call the feminine virtues.
Now, if you look at myth I'm going to the Greeks, okay? There are many doors that you can go into, but I'm going to the Greeks.
In this case, Walter White, Sr.
can be certainly be likened to the god Hephaestus.
Don't worry about it, but Hephaestus.
Ernest Becker says this, it's lovely.
"Man is out of nature.
" You're not really a part of nature, are you? "- And is hope - And hopelessly in it.
" So you're like, "Uh Man, me.
Nature, meet.
" This is an old thing, so he doesn't speak using "he or she.
" So just bear with.
"He is dual, up in the stars and yet housed in the heart-pumping, breath-gasping body that once belonged to a fish and still carries the gill marks to prove it.
His body is a material fleshly casing that is alien to him in many ways.
" - How you doing? - Good.
Um Questions? Anything? - Do you have a used bike section? - We do.
Okay, I just want something that's, like worn in, like a little rough around the edges.
- Yeah.
- Um I dunno.
I told a friend that I ride and I don't know why I did that.
- So if you could just help me out.
- Well, we got those.
We got those.
We got some used ones.
- Here, let me show you what we got.
- Okay.
I like you.
Oh, God.
Like, when everyone was just, like, going bare and bald, I was like, all right, cool.
Like, if I'm gonna do it, I'm gonna go all the way.
- So I lasered.
- Never did it.
- You lasered? - Yeah.
- I thought you just wax.
- No.
It was like a competition.
It's like, "Well, I shave.
" "Well, I wax.
" And I was like, "Well, fuck it, I laser.
" And what? And now this is in, and I don't I don't even have the opportunity.
First tattoo, that was during a very religious phase.
And then I became not religious.
So sometimes it's like Sometimes I got attacked by a shark, other times, like, I was on the back of a Harley and was pulled out from under.
Wait, so you make up stories about this tattoo? I mean, I'm not gonna tell people, like, I believed in God and now I don't.
Why not? People go through that all the time.
Oh, that's so deep.
That, like You can't just throw that on people.
That's not always the right When you're, like, at a dinner and someone's trying to start conversation by asking about your tattoo, the last thing you say is, like "Hey, I've lost all faith and hope.
" Hey! I'm sorry.
Did you ride your bike here? Huh? It's, like, 40 degrees outside.
- You don't live close.
- It feels good.
It feels, like, brisk.
It feels good? Light jog.

It's not true.
I mentioned bike riding.
Hey, how's it goin'? Can I start you off with a drink or anything? Uh, can I have a vodka tonic with double lime, please? Sure.
Do you want another second to look over the menu, - or do you kind of know what you want or - Um I just I have a question.

I'm just making it more easy for them.
Everything just, like - For who? - For the people in the kitchen.
I don't wanna be the difficult person at the table just 'cause I have, like, dietary restrictions.
You have dietary restrictions now? So you're a vegan? Stop saying that.
I mean, you guys have been dating for a couple weeks and, like, you're spending a lot of time together, and you're a vegan now, so It's just, like, easier when we go out to eat if we're ordering, like, from the same, like, the same things.
Like, it's just You don't have to be the same as the person that you're dating.
- You guys can be - No.
Compromise, though.
- Compromise.

I'm just thinking about Jo, and about how I don't know enough about her and about how I haven't met her yet, which is a little strange to me.
