(sighs) Chase: Hey, Gats! How did you get into the biz? Woman (Australian accent): Well, I was in a church An ayahuasca church in Brazil, and halfway through the ceremony I looked down and I was like, "Whoa, I'm really close to the ground, and I also have paws.
" And then I was like, "Shit, I'm a dog.
" And when I got back to the city I thought, "I have to work with dogs, and I am a dog.
" Chase: Uh, well, yeah.
I've never been to church in Brazil.
Um, but it sounds really spiritual, so Listen, I hate to run, but I am late.

Mama's got to get some cigarettes before she goes to her other job.

Oh, what a good boy! You want a treat? I'll give you a treat.
There you go, you beautiful thing.

Oh, you're a peester, meester.
Aw, that's okay.
We can clean that up.
No need to be ashamed.
I know she's my mom, and like, she wants a return on the investment for raising me, but a 15-hour time difference makes conversation really difficult, you know, - 'cause you're in these - Beth? - different transitional periods of the day.
- Is your name Beth? - Hey.
I don't know if you remember me.
- Hi.
Um, I'm Ian's sister, Phaedra.

You know, the new place is nice.
It's newly remodeled.
I just to be honest with you, I don't have time to do anything but work.
Sure, yeah.

So in my stoner hour Oh, how I float Just wondering about her (sniffles) (crying) (TV playing indistinctly) (crying continuing) (whimpers) (Gatsby whines) (Chase sobbing) (whines) Aww (sniffling) (keys jangle) (door opens, closes) Colder than the coast And I Beth: Yoo-hoo! To tend to the rows I close the windows and doors Beth: What are these bubbles? What is that, dude? You shape me like clay I tumble right to you Wow! Beautiful! Come on, guys.
Holy shit.
This is pretty pretty fucking cool, guys.
Just wait.
Did he see the part where he gets Shh! Just wait.
Who's that? Oh! Oh, shit Oh! Oh No, no, no That's horrible, man.
Totally insane, right? Really horrible.
Why would anyone want to see that, man? We see it as having an application towards empathy training for prisoners, you know, to help them relate to their victims.
Yeah, well, it's pretty intense.
Just wait.
We're doing a simulation of what it would be like in that Chilean mine accident from 2010.
- Epic.
- Yeah.
All right.
Well, I won't ask if you guys are making a porno.
Oh, we already made the porno.
I'm in it.
All right, well you guys are following your passion.
That's good.
Thanks, man.
We like to call ourselves "the Inventors of the New Self.
" Amen.
I'm gonna go.
Have fun tonight.
Don't tell anyone what's going on down here.
Hey, Beth.
Hold on.
I won't.
See you.
Hey, girl.
Beth: Hey, dude, how you doing? Yeah, man, I just took a look at the future.
It's pretty fucking terrifying.
If you are feeling sad about the future, I can make you feel happy about the present because I just met the most amazing bubble man, and he told me about this crazy bubble show that is going down in Astoria Park at 4:30 - Astoria? - and I think Yes, Astoria.
What, you find the Pulaski Bridge a little too strenuous? I think you can handle it.
- The Guy: No, it's not that, really.
- Listen.
Why don't you just jump on your bike, come to Queens, we'll smoke, and then we'll watch the show together, huh? Don't pretend you don't love Queens.
The Guy: Eh, it's not my preferred borough.
Very boring to shit on Queens.
(knock on the door) Who's here? Who's here? Who is it? Let's check.
Okay, sit.
And stay.
Good boy.
Oh, my God! Oh, my God.
Welcome to Queens! You could be Dorothy Michaels from "Tootsie" with those glasses.
I was going for sexy grandma, but I'll take what I can get.
Tootsie is like, the best Dustin Hoffman film, man.
Like, that's a compliment.
- Hmm.
Yeah Oh.
- (barks) - Oh, whoa.
- Hey He's just saying hello.
He's super friendly.
Aren't you? This is Gatsby.
Hey, Gatsby.
Sorry about that.
What about the other doggies, they good? Oh, the doggies were so good.
But you know what was better than the doggies? - The bubble man.
- Bubble man.
All right.
But before we do bubs, where do you want to do this? In there.
- You sure? - Oh, yeah.
All right.
Sounds good.
In case you didn't notice, it smells like shit in here.
I did notice.
It's like, do your dishes, man.
Just do 'em.
Or at least put them in the fridge until you're ready to do them.
I mean, that's what I do.
- Yeah, that's also an option.
- Mm-hmm.
So you got me on the clock for bubs.
It better be good, man.
Oh, shit.
That's a lot of expectation.
I don't want to build him up too much.
It's kind of more of a conceptual thing.
It's like, here's this guy, and he's just invented this job where he just goes out makes bubbles, makes people happy.
That's pretty cool, I guess.
And so I was thinking, maybe I should learn to do some bubs? Yeah, bartender, uh, mushrooms, dog-walking, - bubs.
- Yes, please.
Oh, my You got a, uh - Oh, shit.
- (barking) - Oh, damn, man.
- Dude.
Oh! - Hold this, hold this.
- Oh, my God.
Oh, I'm sorry.
I don't know what's got into you.
(in Australian accent) That dingo better not eat no baby.
That's not even funny.
That's, like, a real thing.
I didn't see the movie.
I just know the quote.
It's people's lives.
It's not a movie.
Okay, I'm gonna put this maniac in the bedroom.
Do you want me to crack these beers now or at the park? You do what feels right, stud.
Well (can pops) (door closes) Oh, I knew it! Judas Priest! Are you kidding me! What, are you throwing a party while I'm gone? - I - (cans clatter) I'm sure I don't need to tell you this, but what you did was just totally unprofessional.
I feel like I I used some really bad judgment.
Chase: Yeah.
If you change your mind, ever, you have a beautiful dog, - and I - Yeah, thanks.
Really, I just I think we're good here.
I'm sorry I let you down.
All right.
I'll, uh I'll let them know that you've turned in the keys.
(Gatsby whines) I hate to do this, Gats, but you forced my hand.
I don't have any other choice.
Hey, I'll be back soon, dude.
Hey, buddy.
Wanna go for a walk? Huh? Come on, let's go.
No? All right.
Suit yourself, man.
Come on, Gats.
Let's go outside.
Come on.
Really? You're coming outside.
Let's go.
Come on.
Hey, you got to take a leak sometime, man.
Come on.
You're not leaking in the house.
Let's go.
What's going on with you, man? You can take the boy out of Indiana, - but it's tough to get there.
- (woman laughs) Oh, he's But, uh, yeah.
Then, you know, the premium's low, and it's got vision, dental, medical - That sounds good.
- everything, you know.
Gatsby! Gatsby, come back! Gatsby! Ah, yeah.

Oh, jackpot.
Chubby buddy, yeah.
Hey, thought I'd cut out the middle man.
- There you go.
- All right.
Thanks, man.
Who's this guy? Hey.
Oh, this is Grandpa.
- Hey, Grandpa.
- I named him after my Grandpa.
He looks like a grandpa.
There was a shit on the seat and I couldn't go.
I still really, really need to pee.
Okay, okay.
Let's find you a bathroom.
Have a fun day, guys.
- Enjoy.
- Yeah, thanks.
See ya, Grandpa.
Why didn't you just squat? Hover? I can't hover over the shit.
I would get shit on me.
My legs are very small and I would've got shit on my thighs.
Another person's shit on my thighs.
Hey, Gramps! Hey, Gramps, where you going? Yeah.
