(CHUCKLING) Oh! - Dear - Amen.
Okay.
- Hope you not vegetarian.
- No, I'm not.
It's, uh, Korean food.
But I make less spicy than usual in case you don't like.
No, no, I like a little spice, but this is all too much, Mrs.
Kim.
I feel bad.
Yeah, she's not the Queen of England, just a pastor.
Appa.
I'm actually going out tonight.
You have a hot date? (CHUCKLES) - PASTOR NINA: Oh.
- Appa.
Just joking.
(CHUCKLES) - Or maybe not? - (PASTOR NINA LAUGHS) (CHOKES) So, I give the guy his $20 back, and he just looks at me and says, "You're freaking awesome!" And then he just walks away.
You can't beat that.
You're so funny.
It was also the same day that I got this.
Hurt like a bitch, but Uh, wow.
(CHUCKLES) JUNG: Thanks, bud.
- Actually - Cheers.
- Cheers.
- Cheers.
Okay, we're ready.
Uh, everyone got everything? Drinks, snacks, shirts? Good.
Jung, why don't you start? All right, let's take this for a spin.
History it is.
This beer'll be history in a minute.
(JEN LAUGHS) In 1951, what British Prime Minister (IMITATES BUZZER) Trick question.
Britain doesn't have a Prime Minister.
It has a queen.
And the new one's super hot.
Uh, Kate something? (LAUGHTER) You're thinking of the Duchess of Cambridge.
Right.
Duchess of Cambridge.
Final answer.
(JEN LAUGHS) (SLURPS) - (WHISPERS) Appa? - What's problem? - Where's Pastor Nina? - Washroom.
Look what I find upstair.
Hmm? Why you take Pastor Nina's thing? It's not her thing.
It's Janet thing.
And it's good thing I find before Pastor Nina find.
What you talking? Why Janet have that thing? Go put back in Pastor Nina purse before she coming out.
I find under bed! This is Janet's thing.
Pastor Nina is a pastor, she's not married.
What you talking? - (FLUSHES) - (GASPS) Hurry, go, put back exactly.
- What if you wrong? - What if you wrong? Hurry! Go! (GRUNTS) (CLEARS THROAT) Pastor Nina (CHUCKLES) Oh! Uh I need to ask special question.
Okay, what is it? I was just thinking about Bible and the Jesus and lots of thing.
And I was thinking Is dinosaur in Bible? Oh.
Uh Well, believe it or not, there are a few possible references to dinosaurs in the Bible.
Yes.
It depends on the translation.
Okay, thank you.
Because translators, if you think about it, are only products of their time and culture.
For example, a major shortcoming of the Septuagint, the Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible, was their complete lack of attention to synonyms.
So, words like "mercy" and "compassion" and "love" were often confused.
Who was the first defenseman to win the NHL point-scoring title? - Oh, my God, so easy.
- Jung.
NHL, it's Wayne Gretzky? - Bobby Orr.
- Bobby Orr.
Bobby Orr.
- Why couldn't I get that one? - Your spin.
SEMIRA: Geography.
Where is Hershey Chocolate produced? - In a factory.
- No, like, where.
Oh, right Uh, America.
- Can you be more specific? - The United States of America.
It's kind of a trick question.
Kind of.
The answer is in the question.
Oh, like Jeopardy! Where is Chocolate Village? No.
What is Jersey Milk? Where is New Jersey? - Pennsylvania.
- Really? I thought it was its own state.
No, Hershey Pennsylvania.
Hershey, Pennsylvania.
- JANET: There it is.
- (GRUNTS) Jung's on the board! Oh, it was kind of a group effort.
Was that a two-spot question, or one spot? All the questions are one spot questions.
Let him have the spots.
Good job, Jung.
Okay.
I'm going out now.
Please don't wait up.
- Okay, night-night.
- Good night.
(DOOR OPENS AND CLOSES) Ah-ha! They still here, so, they is Janet thing.
- We take.
- No "ah-ha.
" One is missing, so, it's a Pastor Nina thing.
- We leave.
- One is not missing.
Yeah, used be seven, now, is six.
Pastor Nina take one, using for tonight.
Why would Pastor Nina bring over to our house, then hide under Janet's bed? That doesn't make sense.
Why would Janet move out, come back, hide under bed, do laundry, "Hi, Appa.
Hi, Umma," then go back to apartment and not take? That doesn't even more make sense! You is in denial.
Janet is adult.
Pastor Nina is modern woman.
She wear sneaker with skirt.
She have a blog.
You don't think she can't have condom? What is glide technology? Hmm? Ask Pastor Nina.
She know.
You think Pastor Nina is still sleeping? Maybe she tired from vigorous nighttime activity.
Or maybe, she find Janet's thing, and already, she's packing.
- Is not Janet's thing.
- PASTOR NINA: Morning.
UMMA: Oh, good morning, Pastor Nina.
How did you sleep? Oh, like a log.
I was spent.
Oh! So, you have fun time.
Oh, we have fun time, too.
Counting blessings, reading Bible.
This looks so good.
I might have to help myself to extra bacon this morning.
- How fun is that? - So fun.
(CHUCKLES) But be careful, sometimes, two bacon stick together, two flesh become one.
Right, Pastor Nina? - Not right.
- Oh, no, he is right.
- Uh, Mark 10:8.
- Yeah.
It is good to have such a big appetite after such a busy night.
With a close friend? A special someone? It was my friend, Steve.
We met at seminary years ago.
Oh.
So, good Christian friend? So, you know him in Bible way? Well, I used to work with his wife actually.
Oh.
So, he is married? Well, uh, no.
Ex-wife.
She and I used to be good friends.
But not anymore? No, unfortunately, she was having an affair with my now ex-husband.
Okay, maybe, we stop asking question now.
No, no, it's okay.
Steve and I have remained close friends.
It's our faith that has kept us deeply connected.
He has an enormous spirit.
Mmm-hmm.
Well, I am going to take this upstairs, if you don't mind.
Okay, if you want a shower No, no, no.
I showered when I got home last night.
I felt so dirty.
I am not going to lie to you.
It had been a while.
APPA: Hmm? Since I showered with hot water.
Because of the renovation? - Oh! - Oh, yeah, yeah.
Of course, renovation.
Okay.
- Have good day.
- Thank you.
She not take any bacon.
Maybe she is saving fun for Steve.
Ah! KIMCHEE: So, this cat, he's smaller, but had way more heart than the others.
And he just He just couldn't He couldn't find anyone to love him.
- Sounds pretty boring.
- Stupid cats.
Why do they even make movies like that? All right.
I'm heading out.
Call me about wing night.
Sure.
I love wings.
(DOOR OPENS) (DOOR CLOSES) Looks like somebody had a good night.
Yeah, it was okay.
Hey, listen.
Do you think I'm dumb? What did she do to you in there? No, seriously.
- Do you think I'm stupid? - No.
Okay.
Good.
I mean, like, you're not dumb, dumb, but But what? You're smart.
You're street smart, you're girl smart, you eat smart You're just not, you know, book smart.
- What does that even mean? - Book smart.
Like, you read a lot and learn stuff from books.
I know what it means.
Okay, well, you never finished high school, or a book.
I've finished books.
I just wouldn't say you're very well read.
I may not read a lot of books, but I'm well read.
Okay.
I read that Men's Health magazine every time I use the bathroom.
Exactly.
Did you know that a weak core is what keeps most guys from lifting more weight in a dead lift? Did not know that.
(JUNG SIGHS) Then under bed, we find lots of package of condom.
Holy shit, Mr.
Kim! Stop yelling.
What's your problem? The mind boggles at the implications.
Either your daughter is doing the nasty, or your pastor is doing the nasty.
Either way, the nasty is getting done.
My daughter is not nasty.
How can you be sure? Janet's how old? Only 20.
That's almost three in dog years.
When Ginger was two, she was an innocent puppy.
But when she turn three, I take her to the dog park and bing bong, she open for business.
German shepherd, Chihuahua Janet is not dog.
She is my daughter.
And you'll drive yourself crazy worrying about her.
I got a dog walker.
Now, Ginger can do what she wants, with whoever she wants, it's none of my business.
Best money I ever spent.
Hi, Appa.
Hey, Mr.
Chin.
Oh, hi, Janet.
I'm just here to pick up a few things from my room.
- I won't be long.
- Okay.
By the way, what I told you about Ginger was said in confidence.
What happens in the dog park, stays in the dog park.
Oh, pretty thick book you got there.
Hey, how long does it usually take you to finish something like that? I don't know, like a day or two.
I just started.
- It's a cool story.
- You read it? Oh, yeah, yeah, a while ago.
Food, religion, good soundtrack.
To the movie.
Which I saw after I read the book.
That book literally changed my life.
After my ex read it, he broke up with me and moved to India.
And coincidentally, it's based on a true story.
Oh, why coincidentally? Because she actually did those things.
What's the coincidence? Have you seen Elizabeth Gilbert's TED Talk? Yeah, that's why I'm reading it.
- So good.
- Who's Elizabeth Gilbert? (BOTH LAUGHING) Wha The author.
Coincidentally.
(CHUCKLES) Oh, the author of this book.
Elizabeth Gilbert.
Yeah, yeah.
She's amazing.
And Julia Roberts plays her really, really well.
In the movie.
Which I saw after.
Here's another fun fact.
Hershey Chocolate is made in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
- JANET: Hi.
- Hi.
I just came to grab a few things.
Of course, it's your room.
I can leave if you want.
Oh, no, it's fine.
Speaking of grabbing a few things, I thought you might want to take these.
Oh.
Is this a talk? I assumed they're yours.
I found them under the bed.
Oh, my God.
Sorry.
Right.
(CHUCKLES) They're just always giving them away at school, and I'm like, "Stop giving me condoms already.
" Not that I don't like them.
Just because Well, for a lot of reasons I totally get it.
- I'm on the pill.
To regulate.
- Great.
And I know it does not protect against STIs, but what are you gonna do? Use condoms I guess.
I'm just gonna keep grabbing a few things.
I'm gonna keep folding laundry.
I brought a lot of European authors and poetry.
I'm assuming this is to impress a girl? No, I wanna actually read them.
Why? I'm thinking about finishing high school.
Getting my diploma online.
Wow.
That's great.
Maybe it's stupid.
I'm pretty busy.
No, you should do it.
You know how I get all the awards, always make the honor roll, Dean's List Yeah, I get it.
You got the brains, I got the looks.
Yeah, I'm really smart.
So, listen to me when I say you can do this.
- Thanks.
- And you didn't get the looks.
Tell that to your friend, Jane.
- Jen! - Oh! Ah Right.
Chicken wing Jen.
What you doing? What does it look like I'm doing? - Making bed? - Good.
Umma, maybe it's better we don't know.
Hmm? None of our business.
So, you admit it's Janet's thing? I not say that.
(SIGHS) Just think, even if condom is still under bed - They're not, I check.
- Even if And Janet was here today, picking up some Even if.
Doesn't matter.
Hmm? Important thing is, we respect privacy.

And sock.
This one need mending.
I can fix for you.
It's okay.
So, uh, good news.
I am going to be moving back to my place tonight.
- Oh! - They, uh, finish renovation? No.
I just thought that you could use some space.
So, if you could leave those, I will just finish packing up and be on my way.
- Door is always open.
- Certainly seems to be.
