Transcript:

Joy: All right then. Bye. I’m not gonna say it. I don’t want to say it. You are such an old woman. Fine. I love you, too.
Victoria: Your mother?
Joy: My fake fiancé. We’re meeting the immigration lawyer, and Rick’s insisting We act like a real couple. I mean, do people really say, “I love you” that much? It’s gross. No word from your jailed accountant?
Victoria: No my assets are still frozen. I am officially broke.
Joy: Oh, now. You still have your health. And the love of your friends.
Victoria: I can’t even laugh at your dark English humor anymore. But that’s okay, because I have a plan.
Joy: Hmm. Ohiosugardaddies.Com. Rich older men looking for younger women. Which one are you?
Victoria: For your information, I signed up. I sent in a picture and everything.
Joy: This is your head shot from 1981. “special skills: Weapons, fluent in Japanese. Ventriloquism”? Ventriloquism?
Victoria: [squeaky voice] help! I’m stuck in the refrigerator.
Joy: Need a refill?
Elka: Oh, you’ve got that right, skeletor.
Joy: What are you doing?
Elka: Getting drunk. It’s the only way I’m going to get over Max.
Victoria: Oh, it’s so sad that you two broke up.
Joy: She had to. She’s under indictment and Max’s son is running for office.
Elka: I’ll be fine after a 24-hour bender. Benders fix everything. Except quitting alcohol.
Joy: So how far in are you?
Elka: Uh Uh Eight hours. Maybe 20. My watch might be upside down.
Victoria: You don’t sound drunk.
Elka: I’m stinko. You can tell ’cause my edit button’s turned off.
Joy: You have an edit button?
Elka: You tell me. What’s dumb, flat, and needs to shave her mustache? Spoiler alert: It’s you.
Joy: I’ll be damned.
Melanie: Hey, morning guys. Um, listen. You know I hate to ask for favors. Although I don’t mind being asked because help is a gift I can always afford to give. But, anyway, um, Pete’s family reunion is this evening, and since I’m going to be meeting his mom for the very first time, I could use my family there. That’s you guys.
Elka: Ugh, booooring!
Melanie: Oh poor thing, she’s taking this Max break-up pretty hard, huh? But you guys will be there, right? Please?
Joy: Oh, fine, I’ll go. It will help me get my green card if Rick and I are seen out as a couple.
Victoria: And I might make it if I can find a date.
[cash register opening] Ooh! I got a bite.
Joy: She’s trying to meet an old rich guy.
Victoria: Not trying, my friends. Succeeding.
Joy: What’s he look like?
Victoria: Look like? Oh, don’t be shallow. He’s a billionaire! I accept.
[slot machine hitting jackpot] – [humming softly]

Joy: Look, I know this is awkward. But I really am grateful.
Rick: Oh, it works for both of us. You get your green card, And I get the aura of an Alpha predator. Who deserves, nay, who takes an Alpha female.
Joy: You really think being with me is going to get you girls?
Rick: Exhibit Z. The picture that I’ve been showing around town of us. And exhibit B, the phone numbers of the women whose shoulders I will, as soon as we have broken up, Moisten with my tears. I’ve also been showing around the ring that I got you.
Joy: Oh, my goodness. It’s huge.
Rick: Let’s hope that’s not the last time I hear you say that. Looks real, doesn’t it? It, uh, also helps answer the question of “What’s she doing with him?”
Joy: Mm.
[Doorbell rings]
Joy: Oh, just remember, stick to the script. Where we met, families, morning routines. No additions.
Rick: Oh, you will sneak in a mention of my masterful early morning lovemaking?
Joy: Green card, green card, green card.
Ellen: Hi, I’m Ellen Szymborska, Pete’s cousin.
Joy: Hi, I’m Joy. Thanks again for coming. I know what a big favor this is.
Rick: Greetings, my lady. I don’t mean to embarrass you, but you are much too pretty to be an immigration lawyer.
Ellen: Oh!
Rick: [Laughs] Isn’t she? Show the ring.
Ellen: Okay, I think that’s it for the preliminary paperwork.
Rick: Good job, Ellen.
Ellen: Thank you, Rick. But this is the easy part. You still have to see INS, and they are going to grill you to prove that Joy’s not marrying you for a green card.
Rick: Oh, heh.
Joy: As if! I love this guy. So much.
Rick: And I love you so much, baby.
Ellen: So, how did you two meet, anyway?
Joy: Oh, I can tell you exactly
Rick: I wanna tell, baby. Sometimes I tack a sheet on the side of my garage, and hold an outdoor movie night for the neighbor kids.
Ellen: Oh!
Rick: Mm-Hmm.
Joy: That’s not how it happened.
Rick: One night, I was showing Dumbo, Which is my favorite movie.
Ellen: Oh, I love Dumbo.
Rick: Of course, so moving. And, uh, Joy came over to, uh, complain about the noise.
Joy: No, no.
Rick: And I started crying. Not because she yelled at me. But because of the movie.
Ellen: Oh, how could anyone not cry at Dumbo?
Rick: And for some reason, we just clicked. Me, the most sentimental, Disney-loving softie on the planet, and this angry hothead who never cries.
Joy: Oh, you. That’s not exactly how it happened.
Ellen: Wow, that’s, like, the eighth time you’ve corrected him.
Joy: No, is it?
Ellen: Yeah.
Joy: I’m a bitch.
Rick: Oh!
Ellen: Actually, I meant it’s a good thing. We can always tell a fake couple because their stories are too consistent.
Joy: Ah.
Ellen: You’re a lucky woman, Joy.
Rick: Especially early in the morning. I mean, before 6:00.
Joy: Yes. We’re all so lucky, really.
Rick: See you tonight at the party. I think I’m in love.
Joy: Will you at least marry me before you start cheating?
Rick: Oh.

Melanie: Oh, she’s gonna hate me. I know it.
Pete: Honey, how could anyone hate you? You’ll be fine. Just be you. Is that really what you’re wearing?
Melanie: What?
Pete: I’m teasing.
Melanie: Girls don’t like teasing. It’s worse than sex in the morning.
Pete: Hey, uncle Ned. Relax, mom just wants to make sure you’re not some plastic Hollywood floozy.
Melanie: You’re teasing again.
Pete: Not really, no. Mom’s very old world. Like, she’s still mad at me for dropping out of seminary to join the police force.
Melanie: Well, God’s loss is my gain.
Pete: Hmm.
[audience cheers]
Pete’s Mom: Disgusting! I thought you said she was not a California floozy.
Pete: Mom, hi.
Pete’s Mom: No, no, no. Not after that.
Pete: Melanie, this is my mother, Agnieszka.
Melanie: It’s no nice to meet you. Agnieszka. That must be Polish for Agnes. Like Agnes Morehead, the mean mother-in-law on bewitched. Uh, not to say that you’re mean. Or a witch. Did I say nice to meet you?
Pete’s Mom: She’s talkie, and much older than I thought. And too skinny.
Melanie: Too skinny? I like her.
Pete’s Mom: Divorced. So, you abandoned your duty to your husband.
Melanie: Well, actually, he was seeing other women.
Pete’s Mom: So, you are frigid.
Melanie: No! No, ask Pete. I mean, don’t ask Pete. How would he know? [laughing] Oh, why am I pretending? No, I’m not frigid. I enjoy sex. Hello again, Father Ned. Excuse me.
Pete: Well, how’s it going?
Melanie: Just as I expected. Your mom hates me.
Pete: Don’t take it personally, she’s tough on everybody. Well, except my brother Henry. He was always the favorite, and I was like second-hand Pete. I got all his old clothes. Growing up I thought Henry Szymborska was a brand.
Melanie: Aw. You poor thing.
Pete: Yeah.
Joy: So here we are. Honey.
Rick: When I touch you, I sense every woman in the room wondering why I’m not touching her. More sex for future Rick. Ah, speaking of which.
Ellen: Hey, you guys. How’s my favorite couple?
Joy: Oh, you know. Just coupling out.
Ellen: Ohh. So I spoke to a friend of mine at INS, And I think it’s looking good.
Joy: Oh, God. What a relief! I can’t wait for this to be over. This ordeal, I mean. It’s been so hard on me and my Lord Shackleton.
Ellen: Who?
Rick: It’s her pet name for me. He was Captain of the Endurance. But don’t worry about me. I would go through anything for the sake of the woman I love.
Ellen: Joy, you have got quite the romantic on your hands.
Rick: And you don’t have a drink in yours. Shall I remedy that?
Ellen: Well, I would love that. So charming.
Joy: Yes, he’s full of it. Charm.

Joy: Hi.
Melanie: Hey.
Joy: How’s it going with Pete’s mum?
Melanie: Oh, she hates me. But she hates everyone from L.A. Thinks we’re all gold diggers.
Joy: Hm. Fortunately, here’s Victoria to put her fears to rest.
Victoria: Hurry up, Oscar. He’s not getting any lighter. All right, my Captain. We have arrived. Just go park him over there.
Melanie: You carried that helpless old man in.
Joy: I mean, seriously. He’s, like, 110.
Victoria: Oh, please. That’s not for months. So how is it going with Pete’s mom? Which one is she?
Melanie: She’s the one over there with a stick up her ass. Father Ned.
Joy: Elka?
Melanie: Elka! This is perfect. You can help me with Pete’s mom. You’re Polish. She’s Polish. You can kiss up to her in Polish. Stay right here.
Victoria: I thought that you weren’t coming.
Elka: Well, I ran out of vodka. And I thought I would come over here and freshen up my drunk.
Joy: We had a full bottle.
Elka: I spilled some. In my mouth. [chuckles] Oh, too slow.
Victoria: Joy, come meet my boyfriend. But hands off, he’s brittle.
Melanie: Elka, Elka. Mrs. Szymborska, I would like you to meet a friend of mine. This is Elka Ostrovsky. Also Polish.
Pete’s Mom: So you think because we’re both from Poland we’re going to like each other.
Melanie: Yeah, well kinda. Heh heh. Say something nice.
Elka: [speaking Polish] (I’m completely shit faced)
Melanie: And that goes double for me.
Elka: Ooh, I think that’s for me.
Victoria: Oh, my God. Joy, look who just walked in.
Elka: Well, I ran out of vodka at the house.
Victoria: No, we already know that. No, I’m talking about him.
Joy: It’s Hank. This is terrible.
Elka: He looks all right to me.
Joy: No, Hank’s the plumber Melanie slept with the first day we were here.
Victoria: Yeah, the one who turned out to be married. Now, we’ve gotta warn Melanie.
Joy: But she’s with Pete.
Victoria: Well, I guess our only choice is to just stay here and stare at Hank. And imagine what he looks like naked.
Elka: I’m way ahead of you.
Pete’s Mom: Finally, Henry’s here!
Hank: Mama.
Both: Mwah, mwah!
Pete: Hank! Hey, bro.
Melanie: Ha, ha, ha! Hank is your brother?
Pete: Yeah, that’s right. I’ve been waiting for this forever. “second-hand Pete” no more. Hank, say hello to my girlfriend, Melanie.
Hank: Nice to meet you, Melanie.
Melanie: Yes, likewise. Hank, was it?
Hank: Yeah. Honey, would you freshen my drink?
Pete: It’s full.
Melanie: But it’s not fresh. Listen. Before you say anything, let’s agree. It never happened. We don’t know each other. We’re complete strangers.
Hank: My God, you’re beautiful.
Melanie: You’re married. I’m dating your brother. Why would you say that?
Hank: Because I have not stopped thinking about you since that night on the boat. I know it’s wrong, and I love my brother. But it doesn’t change the way I feel.
Melanie: Yeah, but I don’t feel that way about you.
Hank: I don’t believe you. Meet me outside for a kiss.
Melanie: Are you crazy?
Hank: Look, if you don’t feel anything, fine. I’ll move on. But if there’s so much as a spark, I’m gonna keep after you ’till you’re mine.
Melanie: Ohh. Ooh!
Joy: What happened? Are you okay?
Melanie: No, I feel like I’m in one of Victoria’s Edge of Tomorrow’s.
Victoria: Well, Honor Saint Raven did have a situation like this, but it wasn’t the same because Hank isn’t a re-animated corpse.
Elka: Like your date.
Melanie: You know, the worst part is Pete just wants to rub me in Hank’s face.
Elka: I thought you already did that on his boat.
Melanie: Hank wants me to meet him outside, so he can kiss me and see if there’s still a spark.
Joy: That’s a terrible idea.
Elka: Do it, he’s hot.
Melanie: I am gonna do it, but not because he’s hot. Because he promised if I felt nothing, Than he would just leave me alone. I wish I could burp up some sausage.
Victoria: Mm.

Ellen: What a beautiful ring you gave her.
Rick: Well, a beautiful hand deserves a beautiful ring.
Joy: Ellen, would you excuse us for a moment?
Ellen: Sure. He’s quite a keeper.
Rick: Of course, some wild things can’t be kept.
Joy: Will you stop flirting with our lawyer? You’re gonna ruin the whole thing.
Rick: I’m just warming her up for later.
Joy: You’re overcooking her.
Rick: Don’t blame the fire for being hot.

Melanie: Okay, come on. Let’s get this over with. If I don’t feel anything, You promise to drop it, right?
Hank: I promise.
Melanie: Yeah, sorry. Nothing.
Hank: Hey, Melanie. Please.
Melanie: You promised, Hank.
Hank: Honey!
Melanie: Don’t call me honey.
Hank: Hi, honey.
Melanie: Honey! You must be honey.
Linda: [Chuckles] – Hi.
Melanie: Hi.
Hank: Well, good, you were able to make it after all.
Linda: Yeah.
Hank: Uh, Melanie, this is my wife Linda. Linda, this is Melanie. Melanie is Pete’s girlfriend.
Linda: Oh, nice to meet you.
Melanie: So nice to meet you, too. Yeah, Hank was just making sure that I’m the right girl. For his baby brother. And I hope now you have proof. That Pete is the only man for me.
Linda: Oh, well, Pete’s a great guy. So that’s good to hear.
Melanie: Yeah, yeah. I’m lucky to have him.
Linda: Hmm.
Melanie: As you two are lucky to have each other. You know, ’cause as the kids say, Love is da bomb. Do kids still say that? Discuss, gotta go.

Elka: Your date doesn’t look so hot.
Victoria: Oh, don’t be ridiculous. Winston is an extremely handsome and dapper man Without any living heirs.
Elka: No, I mean, he’s not looking so alive.
Victoria: [imitating Winston] oh, I’m just a little tired.
Oh Elka, can’t you see that he just needs to rest?
Elka: I saw your lips move.
Victoria: [imitating Winston] darling, your friend smells like a still.
Victoria: Oh, Winston. You behave yourself. Ooh, diamond encrusted.
Elka: What’s this note? “on the website you looked younger. Take me home.”
[all cheering]
Melanie: That’s my Pete, that’s my boyfriend!
Pete: Wow, I should play darts more often.
Pete’s Mom: Climb down from him! You’re not at work, and he is not a pole.
Melanie: Well, actually he is a pole. You’re all Poles. [laughing] Yeah, nothing? I give up.
Pete’s Mom: Your brother. You would not see him with a girl like this.
Pete: No, you know, mom, Hank’s had a lot of things before me and better than me, but not Melanie. [tapping glass] Um, excuse me, everybody. I’d like to make a toast. Tonight I feel like the luckiest guy in the world. Having this wonderful woman by my side, and, uh Well To Melanie.
Hank: Wait. Before we drink, I need to say something about Melanie too. The truth is
Melanie: is so overrated. Bottoms-up, everybody! Ha, ha!
Hank: I’m so happy that my little brother has met a wonderful woman who is crazy about him. To them.
Pete: Nostrovia.
Elka: I thought you were gonna tell everyone how you two hooked up on your boat the first night she got here.

Melanie: Well, now we know there are 15 ways to say “whore” in Polish.
Victoria: Such a beautiful language.
Melanie: And no more Pete. I guess there’s just no coming back from, “I slept with your brother.”
Elka: I am so sorry, Melanie.
Melanie: Elka, it’s okay. Pete would have found out eventually. So, I guess I lost a boyfriend.
Joy: Well, at least you didn’t lose a fiancé to an INS lawyer. And I lost the chance at a quick green card. Still, better the long arm of the law than the clammy hands of the Rick. I think he sprained my finger pulling that ring off.
Victoria: Well, you two lost men. I lost my mind. I mean, if I’d married him, I wouldn’t be able to look at myself in the mirror. And who am I If I can’t look at myself in the mirror?
Melanie: So, we’re four single girls on a Saturday night.
[cash register dings]
Melanie: Victoria!
Victoria: Wait, that’s not me.
Elka: It’s me. I sent in a slightly younger picture of myself.
Joy: A cave drawing?
Elka: I signed up when my bender was over. In fact, that’s my screen name. “bender over.”
