So this plan you speak of.

Remember the first night Robin and I went out? I stole a blue French horn for her, and it almost worked.

Yeah, dude, that was awesome. But how are you ever gonna top that?

She should be here any second.

We're pretty hungry. When do we get our pizza?

Enough with the We'll go get pizza later, all right? Just stay...

Damn it.


Hey, Lily. I'm locked out of my apartment. I need to come pick up my extra key.

Extra key? Do I have an extra key to your apartment?

Yes, I gave it to you.

Oh, right. That key. Yeah, I lost it.

Great. Now I gotta go to the locksmith.

No. Wait. Maybe you should just knock.

Knock? Lily, my dogs aren't that well-trained.

I gotta go. Just knock, okay?

Just knock. Okay.



Robin. I've sort of said this already. I mean, I've half-said it. I've tried to say it and I've said it badly. So this is me, just saying it. With strings. I'm crazy about you. I think we should be together. What do you say?
