I I have a very overdue speeding ticket.
Did you make enough? - Yeah - Good.
You know, my lecture is about this.

Come and join us for a few moments.
We want to discuss a few things about your stay with us.
What's up? Well, I took the liberty of putting together a rudimentary cost analysis.
- Seriously? - I know it's been a while - since maybe you've seen a bill.
- No, no, no.
- Why is she wearing Mom's robe? - All right.
Stop trying to change the subject.
Come on.
Look at the list.
Just like a a ballpark figure of what your rent should be.
- My rent? - Mm-hmm.
- I don't have any money! - Well, okay, but if you're gonna stay here, you gotta chip in.
I don't have time to get a job.
I mean, I got to get a divorce.
I have to find a neurosurgeon so that I can get this chip out of my brain.
- Where are the keys? - Sit down.
Sit! Look, divorces take a long time, so you're gonna need cash anyway, regardless.
You think the lawyers, they're gonna work for free? Brain surgeons, what, they work for hugs? Fine.
Is that good? Does that work? Will that get me another month here? Yeah, well, there's a couple other general issues.
- Oh, my God.
- Namely, I need you pay a little more respect to Diane.
[eerie music.]
It is what it is.
She's part of the family.
Enlighten me on how this works.
Do you take a bite out of her food and then pretend that she ate it? Oh! Is it ruined if I do it? [punchy music.]
♪ Add toast to the list.
I'll get your money.
Hey, how much does Diane pay in rent? Mr.
Gogol, you, my friend, are doing the right thing.
She wants smells in the hub? - We build her a smell cube.
- Yeah.
- I'm very reasonable.
- Sir? - She'll love this.
- Yes.
I mean, she's just too upset right now to appreciate it, but the chip the chip is working.
Look how much more I know about her, how much more I understand her.
Honestly, I think this this process has really brought us closer together than ever.
- Totally.
- No! No! No, I said nothing edible! Many people enjoy the smell of cinnamon, even if they don't like to eat it.
But we're gonna note that as a no.
It's climbing up my sinuses.
It's climbing up my sinuses.
Maybe we should present Hazel with some smell samples since ultimately, this cube is for her.
There's no sense in making you smell more than you have to.
What are you saying? Make her part of the process? That's good.
Oh, that's good.
What is this? - Oh, that's glass.
- That's lovely.
- It's empty.
- Empty glass.
Put that on the list.
- I like that.
- Yes, sir.
[light music.]
♪ Change my mind, it's easy to do ♪ But change my ways ♪ Only works when I have to ♪ All the times when I do the opposite ♪ Oh, hi.
There's a digital detox today for the yoga class.
Yes, namaste.
Aw, thank you.
Have a good class.
Hi, there's a digital detox for the yoga class today, actually.

That's a piece of shit right there.
It's a piece of shit.
- Six bucks for this last one.
- Great.
You got to be fucking kidding me! Hi.
Bangles, hi.
- "Bangles," seriously? - Um, you know what? I'm actually on my way out, but it was so, um, it was so good to see you.
Yeah, no, you're not going anywhere, okay? We're gonna fucking catch up.
I was, like, "No way my best friend, "my fucking ride or die, would screw me over like that.
She's my best friend.
She'll bring the dress back.
" - Oh, no.
No, fucking way.
- Okay.
This dress is my entire grade.
Okay, but okay B-Bangles, I won't even eat.
I'm gonna be so careful with it.
Do you not trust me or something? Who do I see a couple weeks later? You, in a fucking magazine.
With Byron? I wanted to call and explain, but I I didn't have a phone.
Oh, Ms.
Fucking Gogol didn't have a phone.
Do you think I'm fucking stupid? - I actually didn't have a phone - Shut up! Okay? I'm just getting started.
Where am I at this point? Not in school because I failed my final, moved in with Jalapeño Dick, I got pregnant.
You have a kid with Jalapeño Dick? No.
I got an abortion.
But to pay for the abortion, I had to start dealing Molly! And where do you think that got me? He's from the Hub.
They're coming to get me.
Not at all, Mrs.
Byron is giving you space, just as requested.
He sent me because we have some questions, and apparently you don't find my presence threatening.
If I may? I have some samples for you to sniff.
Byron is building you a smell cube.
- [gate buzzes.]
- No! Thank you! Hi.
I'm Bennett.
I don't care about a smell cube.
I am not coming back to the Hub.
- Do you understand me? - Well, just in case you do, even for a visit, would you mind just sniffing? - No.
- Three sniffs, say, - could get us started.
- Dude, she said, "No.
" I'll let Byron know that now is not a great time.
He already knows.
He can see all this, and you know that he knows.
You're just you're just standing there smiling and lying.
Get out.
Get out.
Get out of here! Get your shit.
Get out.
I'll catch up with you later, Mrs.
[gate buzzes.]
Thank you.
The Hazel I knew would have told Smell Boy to go fuck himself six ways to Sunday.
What happened in there? It's a lot to explain.

♪ Wow.
I haven't been here in forever.
And it looks exactly the same.
It's a little more depressing than I remembered.

- Yeah, don't, um - I can't believe your dad - sticks his boner in this.
- Yeah.
- Hey.
- Bangles.
I guess they let you out of prison, huh? Was hoping I'd never see you again.
Hey, Dad? Uh, what do you think of that? Took a little trip to the pawn shop today.
- Oh, yeah? - Oh, my God.
It's nothing of yours.
What'd you do? - You really want to know? - Yeah.
The acorn doesn't fall far, right? It's apple.
I'm gonna make dinner.
Bangles can't stay.
I only got three pork chops.
But Oh.
Oh, okay.
She's not coming back to the Hub.
- I'm killing myself - [glass shatters.]
Making her a smell cube, and she's not coming back to the Hub! She's acting out, but she'll return.
You're right.
I mean, no way she's going back to that pathetic life I saved her from.
- Exactly.
- Right.
She just needs to feel that it's all on her own terms.
I see that Zelda's not here for her midday swim.
Zelda's pool privileges have been revoked.
I'm gonna eat her.
Well, then I need to extricate all the data Speaking of traitors.
Bruce! Bruce! - Yes, sir? - Find Herringbone.
If he's not dead, send him to pasture.
I am so sorry.
I tried to get her to smell things, but she was with this really scary woman.
Mimicry, mimicry.
That's it.
That's it.
That should be our approach.
Appeal to her on her own terms.

- Yeah.
I know.
It is really wild.
Hey, I just have to say that I'm really sorry, for not getting the dress back to you that night, and for screwing you over, and, you know Look, let's be honest.
I would have done the same thing to you, so I'm I'm just I'm happy to see you.
I'm really happy to see you too.
I really I really am.
Because, you know, I haven't hung out with a friend in 10 years.

- Cheers.
- Cheers.
- I like that.
- Ah, that is good.

- You know what? - What? Hazel is really gonna appreciate this.
I think sometimes, she just gets a little homesick.
What do you mean? Well, one time she asked me for donut holes, which I'm guessing she used to eat.
What are donut holes? Bite-sized donuts.
Just the circle part, - so no hole.
- What circle part? So if the if the hole wasn't a hole, and it was full just that part, but small.
- And you gave it to her? - No.
Of course not.
Well, you should have, Bennett.
When she comes back, you should give it to her if she asks for it again! I'm sorry.
I feel so I feel so bad right now.
Do you think that's why she left? A little bit.
So I have to ask.

- Hey.
- He sees it.
Hey! In there! You little sick fuck! Are you looking for a show? Oh, wow! Take it in.
Take it in.
You really want to make him cringe? - Mm-hmm.
- You know what you should do? You gotta moon him.
- Oh, girl.
Yeah, girl.
- Moon him! He hates butts! - That's a full moon.
- Yeah, it's a lot.
Probably a lot wider than you remember, huh? - [laughs.]
- Put your butt away, Bangles.
I'm not showing him the cheeks.
I'm just showing him the hole.
Don't engage, huh? That's not how you deal with narcissists.
- You know what? - What? [whispering.]
Byron can be our meal ticket out of here if we work together.
I have an idea.
