I, Katrina, vow to G to God and the I say yes to the dress.
Onward, Christian soldier.
That was fun.
Oh, yeah.
Yeah, it was my first time doing that, so Yeah, yeah, same.

- Oh, yeah.
No, I-I I'll get on those apps and, uh, code away, man.

I thought you went home.
I was looking all over for you.
I'm sorry, Sam, you got to go.

Safety first.
- I still might be a creep.
- Are you? - Nah.
- Whew.
You know what, - this is better than a bar.
- Right? Right? We're outside, we got fresh air, it's beautiful out.
- I miss the bar.
- Ugh! Me too! - I miss it so much.
- God, what do people do on walks? I hate walking.
It's like, why do you even have to work out to stay in shape? Like, why can't I just be fit? - I just want to be in shape so bad.
- Yeah.
Totally agree.
Uh, we have a lot in common.
Yeah, we really do.
Do you have to be anywhere, like, for-for Thanksgiving or anything like that? It's not even dark out.
I'm good.
So, what brought you out in the first place, anyway? I am celebrating the great day I had with my family.
- Mm.
- Doesn't everybody do that? I have no idea, I haven't seen my family yet.
I took the train from New York and went straight to the bar and I pregamed.
Always a very good idea with my mother.
Do you know what time it is? - No.
- Aw.
- She is gonna be so pissed at me.
- Yeah, she is.
She can add it to the list of things she's already mad at me for.
- Ooh! - If you could make money from pissing off your parents, I would - be very rich.
- Oh.
You should look into the chosen family thing.
Oh, yeah.
That's probably my next move.
Actually, I think your next move should be - going home, because I am a monster.
- Mm.
I got kicked out of my family the day of Thanksgiving.
So, we can be monsters together.
- Okay.
- Mm-hmm.
- It's our turn.
- It's our turn, it's our turn.
Hi, good evening.
I would love a cheeseburger with fries and a Coke and a shake and an ice cream sundae.
Thank you so much.
And I'll have everything that she had, but just with, like, one more.
- Right? - I can't serve you without a car.
You can't You We-we can't walk up? - Hence the name "drive-through.
" - Never doing it.
Oh, I'm so sorry for the confusion.
We are in a car.
Oh, yeah, yeah.
Yeah, we are.
Um, - turn on the radio, sweetheart.
- Oh, you've got it, honey bear.

Was that the best meal you've ever had? - Oh, my God, it's a feast.
- Mmm.
- Mmm.
- Oh, - should we say what we're thankful for? - Uh, okay.
I'm thankful I don't live in this shit town anymore.
I still live here.
Oh, yeah? Fight me.
No, I got a new job.
It's in coding.
- Sure.
Don't know what that means.
- Doesn't matter, because I got a big promotion.
- Wow.
- Ah.
And you even like it.
Hot twist.
I like that I got it, I don't know if I like doing it yet.
Now, that I can get behind.
I hate work.
Okay, no, I don't hate it.
It's just, I got thrown into the deep end.
It's kinda depressing, obsessing over this thing, you know, you go out, you get it, and it's too much.
I'm definitely gonna screw it up.
No, you're not, come on.
It sounds like you just have imposter syndrome.
Hey, I thought I had that, but then it turns out that I was right about everything I thought I couldn't do, which is everything.
- No way.
- Uh-huh.
Seriously, I get in trouble, like, all the time.
I feel like a preschooler, I get scolded a lot.
Like, they're always like, "You're a mess" or "you're rude to your co-workers" No, no, I don't buy it.
- You're not like that.
- Well no, I know it seems like I have my shit together but, like, I do do those things.
All the time, and I-I honestly, like, don't even know why.
I think that, um, I may be just an asshole, you know, like, genetically.
That was romantic.
Yeah, well, I'm very romantic.
Ask anybody.
- Yeah.
Are we in Before Sunrise? - Yeah.
You know what, we could, like, not exchange info and then just meet at Good Time Sally's again next Thanksgiving.
- Yes.
- Yeah.
- I love that idea.
- Mm-hmm.
Maybe we do it every year.
Well, I don't know, let's see how the rest of the night goes first.
But, so far, A-plus date.
So this is a date now? - Yeah.
- Okay.
- It's longer than most dates I've had.
- Okay.
What are you doing? I got it, it's okay.
Come on, come on, come on, come on.
- Oh Okay - Hey! - What? - Are you joking with me right now? No, no, listen, listen, listen, I'm only back because - I forgot my bag.
- As God is my witness, - she left her bag.
- But hear me out, okay? 'Cause we're already here, so, like, maybe we just - have one drink? Come on.
- No.
Oh Come here, man.
- Listen, help me out, please.
I mean, - Please.
This girl's amazing, and she deserves a really good Thanksgiving.
- One drink.
- Yes! Stay out of the bathroom.
Yeah, you know, Thanksgiving used to be fun at my house, 'cause we'd have, like, a lot of family over and my mom and I could sit several seats apart, and it it was normal-ish, you know? I used to call it "fooling the public.
" But now it's just us, and last year was brutal.
- It was brutal.
- Okay.
But this Thanksgiving Like, the one I just had today - Was the worst.
- No, no, no.
Picture my mom a mom Sitting up all night, waiting for me to come home.
That's awful.
That is pretty bad.
Thank you.
I know, it's so bad.
It is.
Okay, but my family probably spent the entire night worrying about me.
Why? You seem so great.
I I don't know.
My job.
My drinking.
Name it.
Yeah, but you've got a great job, you don't drink that much.
You can't have a job like that if you're a drunk.
- Uh, maybe.
- Take my word for it.
I've got, like, a big job, all things considered, and I'm thriving.
Closing! You don't have to go home - But we can't stay here.
- Oh.
Oh, yes.
No, come on, one more drink, Ronnie.
First of all, it's Massachusetts state law, and secondly, you've had enough to drink.
I could drive a school bus.
And that, my friend, is why I bought the mints and the - the toothbrush.
And the gum.
- Mm.
I think you might be, like, my personal guru.
See, I'd join your cult.
- I would be such a good cult leader.
- Mm.
No, seriously, I think about it, like, all the time.
'Cause those things dissolve into murder and money laundering, but it doesn't have to.
Why can't we just live off the land and have all the sex? And it'd be so fun.
All right, we can be the one good-guy cult, with all the good of the cult but without, like, the legal mess and whatnot.
- Yeah, yeah.
- I'm 100% in and I think we would make bank.
Okay, so what's next? Maybe we go to Fenway.
- Break in there? - Uh-uh.
I'm getting tired.
Or, like, a roller skate or something like Okay, hang on a second.
I think you're trying to trick me into exercise again.
Oh, ha.
I didn't even mean to.
Oh, God, it's so late.
Uh, actually, I kinda think that, like I should go home.
Oh, no.
No way.
Come o We It's not even light out.
Right? Like, we just got here.
- Come - Where? Right here.
Y Where we're, uh, standing.
Uh Uh, come on, come on, come on.
We've had such a great night.
Like, it can't end here.
I don't I don't know.
Please, please.
I really I can't go home.
I know what if we just walked into the street, waited for a car to come, and then just got out of the way right before it came? - Yeah.
For real, - Like in The Notebook.
- Can you imagine? - Yeah.
Come on, it'll be fun.
No, dude, that's, like, a really bad idea, okay? - No, no.
You're being - Why don't we do something like - a spoilsport.
- Jump off a bridge? Dude, dude! What are you doing?! - What is wrong with you? - You don't want to try it? No, I don't want to try it.
I don't have a death wish.
- I-It's not like that.

- Okay.
- Uh I'm sorry.
We were having such a nice time, - Yeah, it's okay.

That was messed-up, man.
You need help.
I don't know, you should, like, talk to somebody A therapist or I don't know, people are always saying that to me, but I'm fine.
My family doesn't really believe in therapy.
They might if they knew the alternative.
