No way.
Ray, great job with the backsplash.

How much work would it be to combine my two apartments? You'd just have to knock down this wall.
What are you thinking? I don't know.
A little more space down the road, for family.
Well, be a couple of thousand if you do it the legal way.
A couple thousand A couple of hundred if it's just me, a sledgehammer, and a picture of my ex-wife.

Now go.
Party on.
That's a line from Wayne's world.
Okay, get out of here.
Hey, Peter! Schwing.
Can we get out of here? I had a really rough night last night.

It's getting really bad lately.
I'm trying to date a more, like, classier type of lady.
Last week, I brought home a lawyer.
She got lyme disease.
Oh, God.

No one would rent to me.
Oh, my God, Peter, I know where you can live.
Ah! Ah! Hot! Hot! Hot! Hot! Hot! Mmm.

Oh, my God.
Truth be told, Morgan, I'm doing a bit of a botch job.

Love, Mindy.
enjoy the cannolis.
They, um, forgot to put filling in them.
Summer breeze makes me feel fine Blowing through the Jasmine in my mind I'll show you frisky.
Summer breeze makes me feel fine Give me some of that brown butter.
Blowing through the Jasmine in my mind What are you doing? Oh! Oh, now I can never use that shower again.
What the hell, dude? You grabbed my butt! I was confused.
You have a very womanly silhouette! Yeah, I know.
I have a beer butt and weed boobs.
Thanks for reminding me.
Your apnea mask is on.
What the hell Mouth guard! What the hell is happening out here? Mindy, your boyfriend groped me.
You are a beard.
Oh, no.
It's happening again.
Why did you let Peter use our shower? She didn't.
I had to use your shower because my dog, Nicole, is sleeping on the t-shirt I use as a towel.
See? Reasons, Danny! No.
I told you about stopping over uninvited.
Okay, we don't need a Kramer, and if we needed one, Morgan's more that energy.
I'm sorry, Pete.
Rules are rules.
You're out.
Okay, okay, wait.
Let me handle this.
Sweetheart, I am so sorry that happened.
I can't imagine you walking in there thinking it was my beautiful body and then happening upon him.
But, Danny, you can't kick him out of the apartment.
We're just beginning to wean him back into society, okay? You said ween.
He's a monster.
All right, fine.
You can stay, but from now on, you're banned from this apartment, okay? You don't bother us, and we don't bother you.
Got it? Very well.
All right.
What the hell.
Well, it's been the worst night of my life.
I'm leaving.
Thank you, Morgan.
I won't pay you.
But you can have all the soda you can drink.
Okay, it would be.
I just want to say that.
If you need me, I'm gonna catch a matinee of Wagner Depressing, anti-semitic, sure, but more fun than here.
All right, can I say something real quick? What? You should stay.
I mean, first of all, I can teach you how to put this littlpork chop to bed.
And also, you told Lauren that you would do this.
Yeah, it's a nice ought, Morgan, but I don't think I have a paternal bone in my body.
Did he just say "Peter"? I think he said "pita," as in the middle eastern bread, and definitely not Peter, Lauren's ex-boyfriend and our coworker.
Morgan, put the coffee on.
You're gonna teach me how to make this stupid baby like me, or my name isn't Jeremy matilda Reed.
Who is it? Oh, I didn't order any food.
I'm Ray.
Danny wanted me to change the locks.
He said he was the victim of a bathroom invasion.
Hey, while you're here, I'd love it if you could take a look at the shower and see if you can install one of those old lady seats.
I get so tired.
I can take a look.
Oh, I checked with the city, and we can knock down that wall, so you guys can combine Danny's two apartments.
Hmm? He said something about wanting to make room for family.
Family? Family? Ray, come here.
My sweet Ray.
I've been waiting for this my whole life.
A man wants me to move in with him.
Tell me your name again.
I'm Mindy, Ray, obviously.
Okay, I got to go.
Excuse me! Hey, neighbor! Peter, you're evicted.
What? Danny wants to combine the two apartments so that I can move in with him.
So you got to go.
God, what did I do with the place once it's mine? I was thinking like a "strawberry shortcake meets Saddam's palace" vibe.
Okay, I'm being insense.
I'm very sorry.
But I don't want to go.
I'm doing so well ling next to you and Danny.
I know! I think we fixed you.
I think you should move on.
Didn't you tell me that you bought groceries today? Yeah, and then I left them at a strip club.
Damn it.
I'm a mess.
Look, I'm so sorry, Peter, but I'm, like, I got to lock this down.
I finally found a boyfriend with a perfectly proportioned penis.
Do you know how rare that is in Manhattan? I'm gonna hold on to him until a coroner drags me away.
I'm sorry, Peter.
I just need this more than you.
Very well.
I think I see the writing on the wall.
And I'm sorry about that by the way.
I will be out of the apartment by the morning, but until then, it is mine.
Thank you.
And just so you know, you're acting like a crazy spinster, and I didn't expect that from you for another two years, and I don't know what is going on with you and Danny, but this is pathetic.
Be that as it may, this is how it is.
I'm so sorry.
Nicole, please see this jerk to her apartment.
Nicole? I forgot her at the strip club too.
Morgan, explain to me again why you're shirtless.
'Cause a very wise woman once said to me, "if with a baby you want to win, always go skin to skin.
" Do you know who that woman was? That was doctor It was Mindy.
I was gonna say it, but She loves to rhyme.
I like it, though.
Yeah, me too.
You're up next, okay? And if he starts suckling, just go with it.
Okay, so, um Oy.
So I just uh, I just Okay, so take off your blouse.
Well, it's not a blouse.

Why is he laughing? He likes it when you hurt yourself.
Hurt yourself again.
Hurt yourself again.

I bruise like a peach.
Prentice would do it.
Okay, fine.
Do it.
Do it.
What are you gonna do? What are you gonna do? Agh! He loves it! Personally, I don't.
I like the dry, you know, like frasier, that type of humor, but Finally, an intimate evening for three: You, me, and Dr.
Dan's winter melon ale.
Bon appetit, baby.
I thought you said it tasted like urine.
No, I would never say that.
It's my favorite drink.

It's cheese city.
You got to put that top on, the protector What do you call it? The plastic protector shield! Put it on! I don't know what you're talking about! I wouldn't use anything like that even if I wasn't having a party.
What did you say Hey, man, you better watch yourself! There is a big disparity between sizes! Oh, you're, like, an inch taller! Inch and a half! With hair! Yeah! And some forehead! Okay, this is stupid.
It's like an ant fighting with thumbelina.
Peter, you're gonna ruin this place before I even get a chance to move in! Yeah! What do you mean, "move in"? Oh, you don't know what this one's thinking.
Oh, there's a conversation to be had here.
Now, if you will excuse me, I need to go get greased up by my real friends for my party slide.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no! Pete, no sliding! It's in the lease! I thought about everything! I can't hear that! What do you, uh What do you mean, "moving in"? What's that? Oh, Ray told me.

Yeah, well, I got a bone to pick with her too.
I don't understand why she's so upset with me.
Dude, you read her diary.
You know Mindy's all in.
So when you start talking about knocking down walls, she's gonna think that you're all in too.
Yeah, you're right.
We have been getting real close lately.
She admitted to me that she's in her 30s.
Shut up.
She swears to me she's 24.

Can we talk about that? When I was thinking about having my mom move in, that I'm talking down the line, in the future, when her bones finally turn to dust.
She's got to take the yogurt for her bones.
Promise me you'll take yogurt for your bones.
Do you want talk about yogurt, or do you want to talk about us? Look, I'm nervous about it, really, really nervous.
But if you really want to move in, I want to give it a try.
