You can happen upon an interesting stranger on the subway.

I haven't seen you smile this much since you found out you were younger than Katie Holmes.
That old bag.
Speaking of age, aren't you dating that Detective? Yeah, nice girls don't make eyes at strange men on the subway.
So you admit I'm a nice girl.
No, but you should know what nice girls do, so you can try to be more like them.
How would you feel if all the guys in here - were eye-banging you? - I'd love it.
- Journalism's so important.
- That's not journalism.

Hate to see you leave, but I love to look at that butt.
No, that's not how that phrase go It is.
That's how it goes.
All right.
"Dear Mindy, to answer your question, "the view from my apartment is of a Cuban coffee shop "that I go to almost every morning.
"I go there because I was starting to feel unwelcome at my old coffee place.
" What to order, hmm Seriously? Let's see, espresso, macchiato, latte "Plus, last time I was there, someone threw a banana at my head.
Why, oh, why" "Must people throw things at me?" Guys, I am always saying that.
Mindy, you have a boyfriend.
You're being emotionally unfaithful.
I just don't like the idea of you emailing some rando on the Internet.
It's not safe.
I think that Wait, this is your email address? I thought it was mindysecondaccount@hotmail Mindy, these are the perils of online dating.
Need I remind you all, I was once catfished by a man with No torso.
All right, everyone back off.
Mindy's a smart person.
- We should trust her judgment on this.
- Thank you.
Danny's correct.
I am a hot, smart woman with an ass that doesn't quit.
So why doesn't everyone just trust me for once in your life? Trust me.
I'm gonna find that real email.
"Dear Mindy, I know I'm breaking our tacit rule "by emailing you twice in one day, but here's why "I can't stop thinking about you.
I think we should meet in person.
" Oh, my God.
"Please let me know if you're interested.
"Oh, how I hope that you are.
"If this correspondence has even the slightest chance "of changing our lives forever, don't you think we owe it to ourselves to explore it?" "I do.
"I have a good feeling about you, Mindy Lahiri.
Sincerely, Andy.
" "Dear Andy, my name is Morgan Tookers.
"It has come to my attention that you've struck up "a 'romantical' email correspondence "with Mindy Lahiri.
"She is my best friend.
"If you hurt her, I will end you.
"Sent from my smartphone, which I have Case, charger, everything.
" Dr.
C? "Hey, Andy.
I'm a little worried how I came off in that.
"I mean, I don't really have a smartphone.
Love, Morgan.
" You're gonna meet this Internet weirdo? You can't until you talk to Charlie.
Peter, why are you wearing that? It's the same weight as Henry, my girlfriend's baby.
I want to get used to carrying him around.
I tried it with a rotisserie chicken Ate the whole thing immediately.
I think that Lauren, if she is even real, is going to be very scared off by all of this.
She will not be scared off, because we are open and honest with each other about everything.
She knows I'm an HPV carrier.
She knows I've never given a woman an orgasm.
Oh, God, yuck.
I think honesty is super important.
Don't you, Dr.
C? Yeah, sure.
I will tell Charlie tonight.
I'm having dinner with him anyway.
Thank you.
It's okay.
"Dear Mindy, how about dinner tonight? Love, Andy.
" "Love.
" "I can meet you tonight, but not for dinner.
" Oh, really? "Why? What are you doing during dinnertime? Do you have a boyfriend?" Okay.
"I don't have a boyfriend.
"I am seeing someone tonight, but we could meet for a drink after.
" Yes.
Hey, Dr.
What's up? Or should I say, "Dr.
Andy make believe"? How'd you find out? How did you find out? Because I'm smarter than you may have "thoughten.
" No, keep your voice down.
Why? Okay, I'll be honest with you, Morgan.
I'm gonna be honest with you, okay? Okay.
Mindy and I dated in secret, and I broke up with her, and I've regretted it ever since.
L? Yeah.
From work? The Indian doctor whose ass won't quit? Yes! Yes! I'm sorry, wait, wait, wait.
You dated her? Okay, look, I tried to get her back, and she just wouldn't have it.
So what I did is I created this guy that she would like, so maybe she would fall in love with him and then realize she was still in love with me.
Morgan, you can't tell her.
You got to promise me.
Ha, why would I help you with your love life when you destroyed mine? You know I bought Tamra a ring? A ring? Tone.
A ringtone.
It was monster mash.
It was our song.
It's my song.
She hates it.
Morgan, if you promise not to tell Mindy, I think I can help you out with this.
Look, when I told you not to date Morgan, I was projecting on you, Tamra, because of my feelings for Dr.
Oh! Then why'd you make me apologize? Eh, it was fun.
It's fun.
So you and Dr.
L, huh? Yeah.
I guess it works.
Y'all are both old like Katie Holmes.
So where are you gonna take her when you finally meet her? It's perfect I'm taking her to one of those gastropub places she likes so much.
That's where losers like us go.
What do you mean? You got to make meeting Dr.
L the perfect moment.
She's always talking about the empire state building.
That's a great idea.
What idea? I was complaining.
Okay, what are you wearing? Actually, who are you wearing? I'm wearing this.
You need to dress like one of those guys she likes, like Bradley Cooper.
Who's Bradley Cooper? So, Charlie, I wanted to talk to you about something.
I really like dating you.
But you have feelings for another guy, someone you don't know very well, but you want to explore, and you think telling me is the right thing to do.
Oh, my God.
You're, like, an amazing Detective.
I read your phone when you were in the bathroom.
And you got to go easy on the selfies, by the way.
Oh, my God.
Look, I-I've been around long enough to know when not to get in the way.
If you love something, set it free.
I don't love you.
I like you, but you snore, and I'm pretty sure you took $20 off my nightstand.
I believe I earned that money back I did later that night.
You're describing yourself as a prostitute again.
You got to stop that.
I know, I know.
The point is I'm not gonna get in the way.
And a word of advice Don't let that guy from work get in the way either.
Morgan he's a huge time-suck.
You're right.
No, not him.
The rich kid from Staten island, little one.
Yeah, Danny.
That's good advice.
Thank you for understanding.
My advice to you Nah, I'm good.
You're killing me, Bradley Cooper.
What is this, a 20-piece suit? Oh, hello.
Who's ready for their hot date tonight with Andy? Hey, um, I need your help.
I actually was trying to spit out some gum, and I spat it right in my hair.
I need you to cut it out for me.
Uh, no, I can't do that right now.
I'm really busy.
What do you mean you're busy? Doing what? I'm busy.
I'm very, very, very busy right now.
What are you talking about? You're never busy.
I'm buzzing up.
You're what? I'm actually downstairs.
I'm gonna come up.
I'm being intimate with myself.
You're masturbating? Julianna Margulies is on TV right now.
I'm watching the good wife.
You're helping me.
I'm coming up.
Don't do this right now, Mindy.
Don't Bye.
Okay, bye.
Screw you, Bradley Cooper.
I didn't do anything.
Keep still.
That didn't hurt.
Okay, here you go.
Stop chewing gum.
You're not ten years old.
Or carry scissors around with you.
Thank you, Danny.
Okay, let's do it.
Time to go.
It's a quarter of, and, you know, I'm getting real tired, and I'm getting anxious to do my nighttime rituals, so Well, then start your rituals, jeez.
I'm not leaving.
I can't be early to see Andy.
He's gonna think I'm a loser.
What? Well, you better get out there and go meet him.
You move like a glacier.
First of all, stop calling me a glacier.
We both know I'm tiny.
Besides, glaciers don't move.
Global warming's a hoax.
Sorry about that.
You know what, Danny? I hate to admit it, but you were right.
Right about what? I'm right about a lot of things.
About us.
You were right about us not being together.
I mean, at first it was tough.
It was really tough.
But I remembered something that you said.
You said that guys don't break up with girls they secretly want to be with.
And then I knew for certain that you didn't want me.
And then it was It was fine, though, because I learned in time that, you know, you weren't right for me either.
We are who we are, and that won't change.
Hey, you drowning? No, I-I'm here.
Okay, I left a huge mess.
I'll talk to you tomorrow.
Thank you.
Hey, bets, where's Mindy? It's 10:00.
Oh, you didn't hear? She got stood up at the empire state building last night, and she caught a really bad cold.
What? Andy stood her up? Why would he do that? I just checked the forecast for last night and saw that it was freezing with a chance of rain.
How would you like that, Dr.
Castellano, to be stood up in freezing and a chance of rain? I know, I mean, maybe this guy had a good reason, I Danny, don't come near me.
I'm sick and disgusting.
You know, when a Castellano gets sick, which almost never happens, the only thing that makes us feel better is two things A bowl of chicken noodle zuppa and, my friend, the Guinness Book of World Records.
Oh, from 1983.
There's an inscription.
"Dear Daniel, congrats on your dance recital" Okay, let's read that later.
Mindy I need to talk to you about something About Andy.
I know.
You don't have to say it.
It was so stupid that I went.
I just thought it would be cool.
I'm the lamest lame-o.
No, no, no, you're not lame.
Look, let me just Let me just finish No, let me finish.
You're gonna want to hear what I have to say.
Okay, but I should've just stayed at your place last night and hung out with you.
That would've been so much more fun.
Do you think you can stay now? Please, Danny! Please! We can do any boring thing you want.
We can read encyclopedias.
You can talk about Walter Cronkite.
We can watch c-span.
Okay, I'll stay.
You will? But you're sick.
Let's watch whatever you want to watch.
How about this? When Harry met Sally.
I'll order whatever gave her an orgasm.
You paraphrased one of the most famous lines pretty well.
That was impressive.
Oh, thanks.
This is so much fun.
Okay, you know who directed this, right? Meathead.
Hmm, I always thought that Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal directed this together.
That's not how movies work.
God, you know so much about film.
It's really cool.
Sometimes it's hard to do the right thing, especially when you really, really don't want to.
But maybe it's okay.
Anyone can say, "I'm sorry, Mindy, for catfishing you with the man of your dreams.
" It takes a real man to march around Manhattan visiting every place Meg Ryan ever laugh-cried.
And I get to see New York through her eyes.
And, man, was it white.
But it wasn't so bad.
It was kind of nice.
And I got to show her a little bit of my New York.
And I think she liked it.
Until one day, Andy was a distant memory.
Danny, I can't wait to die.
My funeral is going to be off the chain.
There's gonna be a signature cocktail.
My ashes will be around the rim.
Ashes? You're not getting cremated.
Peter doesn't want a pile of dust in the pearly gates, and I'm gonna have to vouch for you.
But I will.
You will? Yeah.
You know, I'm gonna be real connected up there, trust me.
Do you want to go get breakfast and be late for work? Yeah.
Oh, my God.
It's him.
Oh, no.
God, you son of a bitch! I waited for hours for you! I looked like such an idiot! Why you hit me? I left my country to escape this.
You wish you were a refugee! Mindy, Mindy, Mindy, no.
That's not Andy, okay? What? What are you talking about? Then who's Andy? Me.
What? Come on, Mindy, just listen to me! You created a fake person for me to fall in love with? Mindy.
I mean, Danny, who did I mail my underwear to? I can't believe you! Damn it, Mindy, just listen to me.
Go to hell! Get out, rapist! I could've been naked.
I need to explain something to you.
Explain what That I slapped some grad student from Europe? He's gonna go back to his country and say, "in America, hot girls can just do whatever they want.
" That's a bad message, Danny.
What were you even trying to do? I thought I was being romantic, okay? You'd get to the top of the empire state building and see it was me, and everything would be okay.
That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard.
You're a liar.
You/Andy made me break up with Charlie.
And then he stood me up at my favorite place in the entire world.
I didn't want to tell you because I knew I knew this would happen.
I knew it would push you away.
I love you.
Mindy, I love you.
I want to be with you.
Look at me.
I want to be with you.
I don't believe you.
Yes, you do.
I don't believe you.
Why? Because you love me until you don't, okay? I'm not gonna do that again.
I want something real, Danny.
This is real.
It's real.
I can prove it to you.
Tonight, 8:00, meet me on the top of the empire state building.
I don't care if you say no.
I will wait all night for you.
Please, please, please, just give me another chance.
I can't go.
Why? Because I have plans.
To do what? To not be the stupidest person in the world.
L? Mm-hmm? Can you close your eyes? I think I have something that's gonna make you feel a little bit better.
Please let it be beer.
I've had the worst day.
Open 'em! My coworkers? This sucks.
Danny pretending to be another man to woo you was ill-advised and illegal, actually.
If you could just sign this waiver saying you're not gonna sue the practice, it would really help me out.
Constantly signing waivers.
Thank you.
Oh, and, uh, yeah, he loves you.
He does not love me.
He loves to ruin my life.
No, come on, you have to go meet him.
He's in love with you.
He laughs at all of your jokes, and let's be honest, comedy is not your strong suit.
I'm hilarious.
You're being so stupid.
Come here.
I'm being stupid? Ow! My hair! This is for your own good.
It's the only way she's gonna learn.
Tough love.
Everyone out.
I'm gonna need another form.
Ow! I don't like that you make me do this.
I have, like, three hairs left.
Why do you do this? I was in here rooting around Danny's desk trying to find some stamps to steal, when I found this.
Great, Peter, a picture of Danny and his brother, a picture of some old hot guy, Mardi Gras beads, and some trashy skank's earrings.
Oh, my God, Peter.
These are my earrings.
Yeah, you're that trashy skank.
One time I came in here, and he was staring at those things.
So either he's thinking about becoming a woman, or he's obviously in love with you.
All right.
I'm gonna go.
Thank you, Peter.
The elevators are temporarily down.
Can you wait? I absolutely cannot wait.
I'm meeting maybe the love of my life.
All right, well, you would have to take the stairs 104 floors.
I can talk to him tomorrow.
Didn't you say he was the love of your life? Oh, God.
Damn it, Danny! Thank you.
Huh, I guess they're working already.
Well, I think we earned our sangria tonight.
By the way, I don't have any money, so I'm just gonna eat the fruit.
We? Me earned the sangria.
What the nips? Why aren't you at the emperor's state building? I went.
I stayed for an hour.
She was a no-show.
Dude, she's on her way to meet you there right now.
She went? Yes, Danny! Yes! And now she's gonna get stood up there by you for a second time.
But don't go.
Go back in, have another slice.
Hell, get a whole pie.
Which way's the empire state building? That way! Aren't you from here? I get up in the evening Excuse me.
