RJ, look at me.
You want to hunt big game? You only need one weapon confidence.
You don't got to be a gorilla, but you got to be aggressive.
- You want to date this girl? - More than anything.
Then ask her out.
She says no, fine, whatever.
But if she says yes, you got to go for it.
I'm talking someplace classy, someplace like Lasagna Farm.
That is a hell of a restaurant.
Bro, they got, like, endless breadsticks.
- It's incredible.
- Bathroom party with my boys.

But she's my dream girl.
RJ, your mom was my Jenny Swanson.
I put that princess on a pedestal.
Landed me here in whore hotel.
Dad, no offense, but I think the lying landed you here.
