Why is that the worst text ever? Because he's an old client of mine.
He obviously wants something more.

Thank you.
Um you know, I just I think when you when you love someone and they're the first thing you think about when you wake up in the morning and the last thing you think about when you go to bed at night, it's the very least you can do is to learn their language.

You almost had me fooled for a second.
It's not an act.
I really love it here.
- You do? - Yeah! What is there not to love? Picking blueberries, outhouses a year off if you have a baby.
Even if you don't have a baby.
Hm? Just a year off! Your family around constantly.
I guess Lagom: not too much, not too little.

We don't use that, but - It's very impressive.

I know.
Will gave it to me.
Wow Is my voice this sexy? - No.
- No? No, I mean, uh not objectively sexy, but sexy to me.
Honey, it's not your fault, you have, like, a high-pitched voice, right? No, hear me out.
And like all of the, like, sexy voice women have low-pitched voices.
Mm-hm.
You have Demi Moore, you have Scarlett Johansson and, uh I mean, you have actually as sexy a voice as a high-pitched person can have.
So that's something - Thank you.

That makes me feel so much better.
Babe, it doesn't matter.
The rest of you is irresistible.
Aww Hey, hey.

No kissing in my room.
What's wrong, Bruce? You seem upset.
Ah, Hassan, it's just my wife's family is driving me crazy.
You know, I just can't wait to get out of there.
I know what you mean.
We have to live in a refugee camp, you know? 32 person in a small tent And there is no roof.
No roof on the tent? No roof.
Geez, your situation is so much worse than mine.
You must think I'm an idiot for complaining so much.
Salaam alaikum.
This is my friend, my good friend, Bruce.
American? Na, he's a Canadian.
He hate the American maybe more than we do.
I don't think I'd say more than you guys do, but Hassan: Let's go.
Oh, yeah.
So what do you think? Yeah, it beats having Gustaf's ass three feet above my head.
(Laughing) Just five more days, honey.
- Yeah.
- Five more days.
I don't think I can wait that long.
Ooh! What, are your parents still up? I think I hear them talking.
You're the one talking all the time, okay? Shut up.
Can you just check to see if they're in bed at least? Yes, I can do that.

- Mm-hm.
- Yeah.
And What was that? (Laughing) I was practicing my Swedish dirty talk.
- Did I say it right, or ? - No, not at all.
Just don't ever say that again.
That was so gross.
