Carlos, can you give us a minute?
Hey, no sweat, hombre.
Robin, look, I didn't throw this party to set you up with Carlos or the one before that, or the one before that. I threw these parties because I wanted to see you.
Well, here I am.
There's something here. Look, unless I'm crazy.
You're not crazy. I don't know, Ted. I mean, we barely know each other and you're looking at me with that look and it's like
What, like what?
It's like, 'Let's fall in love, 'and get married and have kids and drive them to soccer practice.'
I'm not gonna force sports on them unless they're interested.
It's a great look, but you're looking at the wrong girl.
No, I'm not.
Yes, you are. I don't want to get married right now, maybe ever. And if we go out together, I'd feel like I'd either have to marry you or break your heart and I just couldn't do either of those things. Just like you can't turn off the way you feel.
Click. Off. Let's make out.
What? That was the off switch and I turned it off.
There's no off switch.
There is an off switch. And it's off.
No, it's not.
Yes, it is.
No, it's not.
Yes, it is. Oh. No, it's not. You're right. There's no off switch. God, I wish there was an off switch.
We could be friends. Look, I know it sounds insincere when people say that but we could.
I don't know, Robin. I made such a jackass of myself here, we start hanging out, every time I see you, it'll be like, 'Oh, that's right, I'm a jackass.'
You're not a jackass. Look, I'm sorry. I only moved here in April, and I'm always working. And I just haven't met a lot of good people so far. But I understand.
Well, maybe in a few months after it's not so fresh we could all, you know, get a beer.
Yeah. That sounds good. I'll see you, Ted.
