It's, uh, it's a lot of stuff here.
I don't know where you want to start, but It's like, we've got museums, we've got animal I don't know what kind of animals you like First of all, you just took me to a zoo with no animals.
There were animals there, they were just inside their caves.
Then you took me to a sunken naval ship because apparently, in Sweden, you guys celebrate the worst naval disaster in history.
That was cool.
It's a beautiful ship! Then you took me to old town, which is just an old town.
It's a beautiful old town.
Honestly, this might be the worst day of my life.
I'm not a big fan of museums, but I've got to hand it to Sweden, you guys took boring to a whole new level.
Can we just have sex somewhere? Like, in the woods or on that rock or something? What? Please, just have sex with me.
Isn't that what people do here? Oh, we're Here we are! Next stop.
This better be good.
It smells like dead people.
Aubrey You've got to start appreciating stuff like this, this is Swedish history.
More like Swedish tragedy.
An abba museum? It's like, what if there was a Bee Gees museum? Oh, come on.
Abba was way better than the Bee Gees.
Yeah, right.
Name one good abba song.
They had that one really good song.
Which one? I forget the name, but it was, uh "Dancing queen"? Huh, no.
Not "dancing queen".
I said the go song.
"The winner takes it all"? No.
The go song W-what was that? It's I'm talking about the There is none.
"Mama Mia"? No! God, you're not helping.
It's not going to You know what? I'm out of here.
Why? Where are you going? I'm leaving, okay? What's the matter? All I know is this is not what I had planned, okay? I thought today we were going to have fun and just hang out and make fun of Swedish people together.
I don't know what happened to you, Bruce, but it's like You've become one of them.
If I wanted to hang out with swedes, I wouldn't have come here.
You wouldn't have come to Sweden? Oh, it was You know, it was "disco inferno".
That was the song I was thinking of.
I'm pretty sure that wasn't an abba song.
Uh, yeah, I'm pretty sure it was, but thanks.
Oh, nice costume, by the way.
Some sort of super fan or something? Honey, I'm home.
Hey, babe, where have you been? Did you know that Aubrey Plaza was out on tour? Yes! I know, and we should really talk about that because Let me ask you something.
I don't know if you've noticed, but I've been trying to be and act a lot more Swedish lately.
Wait, is that why you've been so weird? I thought you were just depressed, honey.
I was just trying to act more like them.
No, you shouldn't be like them, like us, you know.
I love you because you're not like them.
Like us.
You should be you.
You think? You should find, like, the most successful and richest celebrity in Sweden and then just make them even richer.
Because that's my old Bruce.
Right? Yeah.
You know, you're right.
I should, like, be who I used to be.
Yes! Like, do what I used to do.
Um could you start with this one? What is this? It's my negotiations for tomorrow.
Okay, this is perfect.
This is exactly what I used to do.
I know.
Okay, here's what you do.
First, you start with a really high counter-offer, 'cause then you have a lot of room to negotiate.
Second, you say, "fine, let's just meet in the middle.
" If they still won't budge, just pretend to walk away.
Oh, it's you.
You know, I'm sorry about the other day.
I You know, I lo I love "dancing queen".
I think that was That was the song I was thinking of.
Uh So, uh, what's with the the outfit? Are you a part of the exhibition? No, I have a photo shoot later on.
Okay, 'cause that's the same costume you were wearing the other day, so Well I had one then too.
Anyway, I'm excited to meet you because I have a lot of different ways to make you money.
So And tell me, why would I want more money? That's I thought you were serious there for a second.
In Sweden we have a saying "There are people behind the mountain too.
" Okay, I have no idea what that means.
But, um We're all equal here.
No one is better than the other.
That's not true.
I mean, you're you're You're one of the Guys, uh, from abba, you a better than everyone else, so Let's face it.
This was a mistake.
I haven't even told you what my plan was going to be.
I'm not interested.
Well fine.
Then I'm not interested.
You know, I bet you don't even have a photo shoot.
I do! No, you do not.
I do! No, you don't.
- Yes, I do.
- No, you don't.
You know what? I bet you don't! I bet you just wear those clothes every day! I do have a photo shoot.
Hi! Where's Bruce? He's not coming.
Because I'm on to you.
Okay, I know what's going on.
Stop stalking my boyfriend! Okay? He's mine.
Leave us alone, Aubrey.
And one more thing: I know that there's no tour.
Okay? Okay, well, guess what.
I'm not a stalker.
Oh, really? I can't be a stalker by definition because I'm a celebrity.
Celebrity stalkers are people that stalk celebrities, not celebrities who stalk people.
And-and by the way, I don't want to stalk him anymore, okay? I'm not interested.
He's totally lame now.
I don't know what you did to him, but you turned him into a Swede.
Excuse me.
I'll have you know that I'm working on that.
So he's not going to be like that anymore.
Just so you know, okay? So you're saying I should stalk him? Yes.
You shou No.
I mean I'm just saying he's worthy of stalking.
I'm confused.
Are you telling me to stalk him? I don't speak Swedish.
Why would I speak Swedish? 'Cause we're in Sweden? I'm sorry, you just look very Swedish.
Just 'cause I have blue eyes I have to be Swedish? Well, can I get you something or? Yeah, I'll have a coffee.
Can I get some sugar in this please? How many? Three.
Three? Yeah.
No, I think that's too much.
You know, in Sweden we have something called lagom.
Like, it's not too much, it's not too little.
Nuh-uh-uh-uh! Nope, nope! I don't Don't Give me give me ten.
I want ten sugars.
I want this thing, like, drowning in sugar.
You want ten? Yeah.
Because, you know what? Sometimes you've got to live a little.
Sometimes you've got to do things that are bad for you just so you feel something.
You know what I mean? Sometimes you've got to you've just got to eat the donut.
We don't have donut.
We do have This is not about you! Can you just let me finish? I'm like in the middle of, like, a serious rant here.
And sometimes you've got to walk without sticks.
And sometimes you do something just so you can feel, so you can live.
You know, just live a little, swedes.
Okay? Seriously.
That is delicious.
Honey, I'm home.
Hey, babe.
How did it go for you today? It went horrible.
Yeah? Yeah, just horrible.
It's like It just doesn't matter, like, if I try to be myself or be someone else to try to fit in, it's like nothing works.
I feel like I'm Losing my mind.
I'll be honest.
I mean, for the first time since I moved here, I just want to Go home.
Just for a little while, just to I know it's hard.
But, I mean What would we do there? I don't know.
I mean I do have that offer from Amy to come back for three months, but that's Yeah, but We're just getting settled here and I know.
