Uh pffft I don't know, it's It's impossible to promise something like that.
But I can promise you one thing: I'll, uh Tell her I love her every chance I get.
And I will love her more than anyone has ever loved anyone else in the history of people loving other people, so That's two things.

But otherwise, that was a surprisingly good answer.
Ow.
Ow! Ow.
Thank you.
Five thousand? Mm-hm.
Are you joking, or? You know what, you can take off the foot thing 'cause I didn't enjoy that at all, so With the "foot thing" you mean the The massage or the "kicking our staff in the face" thing? You know what, I'm I'm sorry about that, by the way.
No, I'm talking about the massage, 'cause I don't like people touching my feet.
So, just take that off and then we'll Okay, well Maybe you shouldn't have chosen a foot massage then, in the first place.
Maybe you should be a little bit Is there a problem? No.

Drinks? We didn't have any drinks.
Come.
This is not what I wanted at all.
Now she probably thinks I can't even support you.
Well, you can't.
All that she wants is another baby she's gone tomorrow Why are we listening to this? Well, if you're going to live here, you got to get into stuff like this.
Like Ace of base? Like Ace of base.
You know they had the most successful debut album ever? But in Sweden? Anywhere.
There's no way that's possible.
More than U2? Yeah.
More than the Beatles? Look it up if you don't believe me.
I will look it up, although you seem pretty confident about it.
Since when are you such a big Ace of base fan? I'm not a fan.
I'm just being a proud Swede, you know.
If someone Swedish is successful abroad, you need to be proud.
Take ola rapace, for instance.
Ola ra-what? Yeah, that's what I'm saying.
For you, he's a nobody.
He was an extra in a crappy James Bond movie and he died in the first scene.
But for us, he's James Bond-ola.
Hmm? So this dude and Ace of base are national treasures? Yes, sadly they are.
That is sad.
Are you ready? Yeah, let's mingle, Swedish style.
H-how do you mean, Swedish style? You have a pink sweater around your neck.
That's so weird.
So you having a good time? Yes, great time.
Best.
Okay.
So how do you like Sweden so far? Love it, love everything about it.
Women, right? Yeah, what about them? Ah, they're just so, like Ahh! You know? And, what about that James Bond-ola-guy? I bet you James Bond-Ulla? Yeah.
Who is she? She? Actually, no, I thought it was a guy but So do you like Ace of base, or? No.
So you having a good time? Yeah, you, uh You already asked me that a few seconds ago, so Still yes.
You know what, here's a good story.
I heard the other day about this guy who was renovating his floors, huh! And he got, like, so burned out that he went into the wall, as you swedes call it.
You know, it's like, what an idiot! That that was me.
Peo! Why didn't you tell me to take my shoes off? Because you're not a child.
I thought you knew, okay? Well, obviously I didn't.
No.
Isn't that the whole point of floors, is to be walked on? I mean, who takes off their shoes at a dinner party? Uh, every single Swede.
You know who would never make me take off my shoes? Hmm, Hassan? Yes, Hassan, because he's my only true friend.
Okay.
You know what, I have to tell him the truth.
I'm going to do it tomorrow in person.
Or you can just give him a call, you know.
You can't just call someone up and tell them you're not Canadian.
It's Why not? You wouldn't get it, 'cause you're Swedish.
Okay.
Plus he doesn't have a phone.
So, that's another reason.
That's a good reason.
Oh, hey, little guy.
Hey, is your daddy home? Pappa, pappa Huh! So cute Hello, Bruce! Hej Hassan! Uh, listen, I came here to tell you something.
Okay.
You're a good person, a great friend, and, um, I just have to be honest with you, okay, even if it means that you don't want to be friends with me anymore.
I agree with you, Bruce.
I don't think that We should be friend anymore.
No, no, I think you're misunderstanding me.
I was Come on, Bruce.

Honestly, I think you keeping me from finding a real Swedish friend in my age.
Wait, are you breaking up with me right now? Hey, take it like a man, take it like a Canadian.
Well, you know what? I'm not I'm not Canadian.
Okay? I'm an American.
You hear that, Hassan? Did you hear that? I'm an American! Hej hej! And he's like, "I don't want to be friends anymore," and he's like, "we have nothing in common," and I was like, "hey, that's my line" you know? I've been saying that for, like Saying that to you and to everybody else for the longest time.
Yeah He can you believe, he broke up with me.
That's what really gets me.
It's like, that's supposed to be the Your mother added me as a friend! She did? I got a friend-request from your mother! I did it! I told you I could do it.
