"I was a traveler in Laos, "hitting the hotel bar in search of a scorpion bowl.
"You were a beautiful lady with soulful eyes "and hands as soft as tissues with lotion in them.
" You know, Canada is, uh It's pretty big.
There's a chance that she may never see it.
Mm.
Not possible.
If she's feeling half of what I'm feeling, she's probably looking for me, too.
I'm-a keep working on this.
You're the best, Kevlar.
Let me feel your hands.
No! It's you.
Admit it.
[SIGHS] Come on.
So So, I want to have a drink at the hotel bar Oh, my God.

Why would the Universe send this to me? Maybe there's something in here that'll tell us.
Kevin? Uh, what is this? It's my, uh my stuff from New York.
It was in storage, and it got sent to me.
Uh, would you give me a hand moving it in? Sure can't.
Why not? Because you have terrible taste.

- Spring Street? - Yeah.
All right.
Okay, guys, we are all going to read chapter 9 and discuss the platform that led to the election of Herbert Hoover.
Some key terms to consider During the campaign, Herbert Hoover pointed to the success of the "Own Your Own Home" program - Reese! - which he created while he was the Secretary of Commerce.
Hey.
Could you pass this over to Reese? But although the program was designed to help people, it actually contributed to the destabilization of the banking system.
The program was designed to boost the level It's Kevin.
of home ownership in the U.
S.
A.
- Reese.
- through new rules which allowed the federally chartered banks - to expand their mortgage lending.
- How's your day going so far? Also, relaxing regulations for the Federal Reserve Bank Hey, bud, is that a Henley? I used to wear those all the time.
- You into baseball? - Shh! I am talking to my new friend.
Okay.
What's going on back there? Okay.
Um - Hi.
- Hey! Just teaching? - Trying.
- Cool.
[CHUCKLES] Actually, could you come in? Uh really? Yeah.
No, I just I got to go check on Miss Saffert's room because the substitute was late.
Um, could you just watch the kids for I don't know A few minutes? Yeah, I'm sure I could teach these youngsters a thing or two.
Okay.
That's great.
Guys, keep reading chapter 9 quietly, - and I will be right back.
- Okay.
So, what's in chapter 9, guys? Oh! You're doing the Great Depression.
Well, good news I know all about that.
Um, watch this It was very depressing.
But Great, because it Well, it showed that the banking system was flawed.
And, um, I-I actually I was an investment banker for quite a long time, so, uh [CHUCKLES] believe me, I saw things you would not believe.
It is a dark and horrible but exciting world.
And apparently, they're pretty happy, but you know who is not very happy, uh, are his wife and kids.
- [LAUGHTER] - So, you know, little lesson Don't fake your own death.
It's harder than it looks.
But ooh! we had this other client who flew to the Caymans with $12 million in cash Duct-taped to his body because he stopped trusting the banks.
So, in a way, the the same thinking that sparked the Great Depression is still alive today.
Did he Did he fly first-class? Weirdly, coach.
- Oh.
- Yeah.
Oh! And he had to wear this big old adult diaper because he didn't want to use the restroom.
[LAUGHTER] Okay.
I think I got it from here.
Uh, thank you, Mr.
Finn.
- Hey, glad to lend a hand.
- Good job.
- [SCHOOL BELL RINGS] - Oh.
All right, guys, please finish reading chapter 9.
May or may not be a pop quiz next week.
I don't know.
Hi.
Jessica? - Uh, hi.
- I'm Reese.
If you're still interested, I can show you around.
Maybe tomorrow we can have lunch together? Yeah.
That'd be awesome.
All right.
Okay.
"To my lady in Laos.
" We danced to the finest mariachi music in Southeast Asia, and it was "Magical.
" Okay.
Calm down.
"Dancing with you felt like" [SIGHS] " the beach on a summer day.
" Mm.
Now, that that That actually sounds nice.
"I know losing someone this special would normally" crush a person I mean, just rip their heart out.
But I know deep down, I'll see you again.
We'll be together.
"And then, every day "will be like summer.
" [COMPUTER BEEPS] That'll work.
That'll definitely work.
All right.
You want a wingman, or you want to fly solo? There's nobody here for me.
I can already tell.
You don't have to find a soul mate, just someone who you don't mind talking to for a few minutes.
Then what? A date? [SCOFFS] That sounds horrible.
Again, I think you're putting too much pressure on this.
If you find someone who interests you, we can We can go out as a group.
Okay.
I'll go meet some people.
All right.
[CHUCKLES] I was wrong.
I think I ruined your friend Tyler.
How? Is he okay? He's fine for now.
He's so sure we're gonna find each other.
But that's never gonna happen? I mean, even if I appear to him again, we could We could never be, you know, what he wants us to be.
That's That's just not how it works.
Oh.
And I'm worried about how Tyler's gonna take it when he realizes his "Lady from Laos" isn't coming back.
Yeah, heartache's tough, especially when you have as big a heart as he does.
He is a pure soul Maybe the purest I've met.
I mean, I never should've allowed him to see me.
It was a mistake.
That was a mistake.
I mean, I don't know what I was thinking.
- Hey, Kevin.
- Hey.
Oh! That was That was quick.
Do you need a little support? I talked to someone that didn't make me nauseous.
That's great.
I hope the offer for the group date was real, 'cause I asked her out.
Of course it's It's still good, yeah.
I mean, I I know exactly who I'll ask to join us.
[CHUCKLES] Where's your, uh Where's your lucky lady? Um The brunette right there in the dress.
Right there.
Great! Oh, so great.
That's just great.
[CHUCKLES] Great! Ugh.
KEVIN: Nope.
Nope.
Nope.
Is that Melanie Tripp? Yep.
Recently released from a short prison stint for larceny.
- Ah.
- Yeah.
Skipping down memory lane? Mm, kind of.
Hey, is, um Is Lori still annoying? - [CHUCKLES] - She does that, "How are you?" Oh, yeah.
Yes, she is.
- What are you doing? - [SIGHS] I-I-I just got to find a plus-one for tonight.
I kind of promised someone that I'd go on a double date with them.
Why don't you ask Kristin? You guys have been hanging out, haven't you? Yes, we have.
The problem with that is, she's the other half of the double date.
Oh.
Oh, indeed.
You know, I always thought you guys would get back together someday.
- Really? - Yeah.
I don't know.
You two just seemed to click.
You balanced each other out.
Okay, okay, okay, come on.
Move over.
So, you were trying to find a terrible date to make sure that Kristin knows that you are not interested in them.
- I'll find someone.
- No, no, no.
You know what? I have the perfect terrible date for you.
The STEM club hangs right over there.
I've gone to school with most of these people since kindergarten.
Mostly everyone is okay.
Cool.
Thanks for showing me around.
I know it's kind of weird when people are like, "Hey, be friends with this stranger.
" No big deal.
Where do you sit? I used to sit by myself.
- Hey, Reese! - But I've kind of gotten into theater recently, so Nice.
New posse.
Uh, this is Jessica.
She's new.
This is Alex, Kai, Rory, and Zoe.
- Mm-hmm.
- Reese, did you finish - your history? - Yeah, in study hall.
I'm still working on mine.
Uh, did you forget your lunch? Nope.
I have to go to Miss Allen's 'cause she wants to discuss my review of the play, so You were a little harsh.
It's why they call it a critique, Alex.
Are you done with that? - Yeah.
- Can I finish it? Uh sure.
Thanks.
I can loan you some lunch money if you want to Oh, it's not about the money.
I never buy lunch.
I'm kind of like an urban forager.
What does that mean? I eat food before it gets thrown out.
Do you know 40% of food in America is never eaten? Perfectly good food just thrown away like garbage.
This is really good, though.
Thank you.
[HUMMING] Mm.
Are you gonna finish that? - No.
- Thank you.
- Here you go.
- Thank you.
I'm really glad we could get together.
I've been kind of off the dating circuit for a while.
And I'm not great at meeting people.
Me neither.
- It's awful, isn't it? - Yeah.
Dating apps and setups, just leave everything to chance? I-I never know what I'm Never know what I'm doing.
Oh.
And I asked some friends to join us, - if you're okay with that.
- Yeah.
You know, to take the pressure off, keep it casual.
Keepin' it casual is great.
That's That's perfect.
- That's great.
- [LAUGHS] Oh! There he is.
Hey, man! Oh! So, you're So you're friends with Kevin? You guys know each other? - Hey.

- Charlie.
- Nice to meet you.
- We're This is We're doing this.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
So, you guys ready to double date? Well, we don't have to keep calling it that.
Uh, does anyone want drinks? So, wait, um You brought your sister As a date? [CLEARS THROAT] See, this is I feel like this is one of those crossed-wire situations.
I thought, uh, that this was more of, like, a group hang more than a date.
- Oh.
- So, yeah.
I definitely thought it was a date.
- Same.
- Yeah, well, maybe misheard.
I mean, "hang" and "date" They sound so much alike.
- Yeah.
- No, not really.
Well, "hang" "date," you know "Hey, we're going on a group hang.
" "Hey, uh, it's almost time for our group hang.
" So, it's crazy random that you guys all knew each other in high school, right? - Crazy.
- Yeah.
It was a little more than that, you two.
These guys were quite the couple.
[CHUCKLES] Major item.
Well, ma-major item That's a bit much.
I wouldn't have really have said Yeah.
Minor item.
Even not Minor friendship, if even an item.
- Just two minors.
- Pfft! - You guys.
- Hmm? People went as you guys for Halloween.
Yeah.
They even had a very cute couple nickname.
- Stop.
- It was, like It was Kristin.
Which I know Yeah, I know that's her name, but it's not.
Kristin the I-N from Kevin.
Oh, my God! There is a thing in my drink.
It's a bug, it's a bug thing.
Don't Don't look at it.
It's a It's a scary It's too scary.
Amy, will you please help me come complain to the bartender about the bug thing? - No.
- Amy, please.
What are you doing? Wingmanning.
You got a bogey on your six, and I'm shooting him down.
Well, stop it, okay? All of it.
I didn't bring you here to torpedo the date.
I'm just doing you a solid.
No! No solids have been done, okay? Maybe Kristin and I aren't meant to be.
Fine.
I'll leave it alone.
Thank you.
But you need to be honest with yourself.
Because if you're still carrying something for Kristin, you need to sack up and do something about it.
Hmm.
Pretty strong words from someone who won't take her own advice.
- Hey, Nate! - What? - How's it going? - Hey.
- How do you feel about Nate? - That's different.
- Mm? - Okay? Be discreet.
- Thank you.
- But I don't want to ruin what we have.
Well, I already did ruin things with Kristin, so from one failure to another, cheers.
[GLASSES CLINK] Ahh.
- [COUGHS] - I win.
I'm, like, disgusted and impressed at the same time.
It is pretty impressive, isn't it? I can't do these anymore.
These are great.
I'm starting to come alive.
I'm getting hot.
Is it hot? Can I have a beer? So, I sketched out a couple ideas for the main backdrop.
So it's supposed to be Salem in the 1600s, but what if we set it in, like, a messed-up sort of future? Like Like "Blade Runner.
" - Yes.
- Cool! Everything else will stay the same, but, see, here's another idea.
- Started that one, too.
- Reese! Hey.
Isn't that the girl who ate my leftovers today? [LAUGHTER] I have to get going.
I told my mom I'd be home early.
Hey.
You sure you don't want to play? Oh, no.
That's okay.
Uh, seems like it's going good.
It's going It's going great.
I I knew it would.
You know, I can take it from here if you want to split.
Yeah.
Uh, yeah.
I'm just gonna I'll finish my beer and take off.
Have fun.
[CHUCKLES] She's my lady He seems happy.
Why wouldn't he be? Kristin is great.
How'd you fix him? Because you need to do the same thing to Tyler.
I can't I can't stand seeing him in this funk.
Well, that's the thing I didn't really do anything but point Charlie in a direction.
He was ready to move on.
He just didn't know it.
But how? How does one become ready to move on? Uh [LAUGHS] I honestly don't know.
[LAUGHS] You have to ask him.
- Damn.
- Yep, that's four in a row.
You owe me 20 bucks.
Now, what's the lesson you learn? TOGETHER: Never play pool with an engineer.
It's all about geometry.
Hey, uh, I think I'm gonna get out of here.
Um, can Nate drive you home? Mm-hmm.
You know, I'm actually kind of done with pool.
You want to get out of here and do something stupid? I'm in.
Uh how stupid? Dealer's choice.
Oh.
So Incredibly stupid, then.
Before college, I was I was positive that I wanted to be a doctor, and then I had this just amazing history professor, and, well, the rest is, um Don't say "history.
" Do not Do not say it.
- The rest is history.
- Thanks.
Yeah.
[BOTH LAUGH] Another beer? - Sure.
- Yeah? Okay.
YVETTE: First date? [CHUCKLES] How can you tell? Um You're laughing a little too hard at her jokes.
- [BOTH LAUGH] - And she was letting you win at pool.
[LAUGHS] It's been a while for me.
Just got over a serious relationship, so And here you are, finding love again.
Well, I wouldn't call it love just yet.
We're still getting to know each other.
Yeah, um, you can't truly love someone until you know them.
So, it's a process.
It's like love at first sight isn't even real.
- Right.
- Ah! Ac Actually, no.
I take all that back.
Love takes seconds.
Erica uh, my ex.
Erica and I fell in love the second we laid eyes on one another.
She took my breath away.
Like a beach on a summer day.
Yeah.
Exactly like that.
So So how how'd you get over Erica? I really don't know.
That must've been weird, going on a double date with your ex? And your sister? I can't stress enough It was a group hang.
Okay.
I'm set.
So just give me the okay when you guys are ready to witness some bad-ass skate moves.
Honestly, I think he's wussing out.
He just needs to make a move.
Me? Look at yourself.
Look at the position you're in right now.
Okay.
Fine.
Nate, will you go out on a - Aah! - Ohh! - God! - Oh, my God! Oh, my God! Are you okay?! - Oh, my God, no! - Oh, Jesus.
- Kevin, I'm gonna kill you! - Sit up, sit up.
- You said okay! - I don't think - I'm gonna make it.
- You said okay! - Look right.
- Did I chip a tooth? Yeah, yeah, you're fine.
If she's talking, she's fine! I can't move! KEVIN: Ohh! I can hear my rib parts.
People don't have rib parts.
They have ribs.
Chicken nuggets have rib parts.
Well, I have rib parts now, and I can hear all of them.
[GRUNTS] Amy, could you get me some ice? Why me? You skated on my face.
Because I'm already comfy, and it was kind of your fault.
You skated on my face! Oh, Amy, I'm your brother! - On my face! Let's get some ice! - Let's separate you two.
Do you remember skating on my face?! I'm asking for some ice, as your brother! Amy, Amy, please.
[DOOR CLOSES] Wha Whoa! [LAUGHS] - Kevin! - Oh.
Yep.
That's definitely a concussion.
No.
I just I was just doing stretches For the ribs.
[SHREDDER MOTOR WHIRRING] [SHREDDER MOTOR WHIRRING] You're not even looking at what you're shredding.
Doesn't matter.
I'm getting rid of old baggage.
It's a purge.
Feels great.
Very freeing.
Hey, you know that thing you do, helping people and stuff? Mm-hmm.
Does it ever, like, backfire on you? Oh, yeah.
Yeah, it, uh, backfires big-time.
But, um Whoo-hoo.
Lucky me I don't have a choice.
Why not? Reese, people are always going to need help, and I can't just look away and pretend not to notice.
Not anymore.
I, um I have to do the right thing, and [CHUCKLES] sometimes the right thing sucks.
Are you okay? Are you going through a teen crisis? Is there a mean girl at school? Yeah, but I think it's me.
What What do you mean? Never mind.
I'll be down in a second.
[SHREDDER MOTOR WHIRRING] [LAUGHS] [LAUGHS] Will you look at that.
How old are you two there? - 18, senior year.
- Oh! [LAUGHING] Oh, and by the way, I, uh Got my vision last night.
- You did? - Mm-hmm.
Looks like the next righteous person is in someplace snowy, so I hope you packed your parka.
I I I don't get it.
