- PREVIOUSLY ON SHAHS OF SUNSET:

[exotic music]

- TEHRANGELES IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO ACTUALLY EXPAND

INTO THE COMMERCIAL ARENA,

BUT I'M NOT GOING TO CHANGE TO MAKE MONEY.

NO WAY. NEVER.

- MOHAMED IS GOING OUT OF TOWN,

AND HE'S ASKED ME TO OVERSEE HIS PROJECT.

- THE ONLY ONE I TRUST IS YOU.

- HEY, DAD.

I'M GOING TO TRY AND COME THERE IN THE END OF AUGUST.

MY DAD MOVED TO LONG ISLAND,

AND SINCE HE'S MOVED, WE HAVE NOT BEEN CLOSE.

- I'VE BEEN IN THERAPY THROUGHOUT MY WHOLE LIFE,

MOSTLY BECAUSE OF MY ANGER.

I HAVE THIS PAIN INSIDE OF ME THAT WHEN I'M ATTACKED,

I FEEL LIKE I NEED TO PHYSICALLY HURT PEOPLE.

- ♪ CUT A LOT OF GIRLS, CUT A LOT OF CHECKS

THAT'S THE LIFE HERE ON SUNSET

RICH AND FAMOUS, I AM SUCCESS

MET HER AT LES DEUX, AND SHE DO LOVE SEX

I'MA SIP THIS, YOU DO THE REST

YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DO, YOU DO THE BEST

DO ME A FAVOR, LOSE THE DRESS

WE RUN L.A. ♪

- MY BEHAVIOR HAS BEEN DISGUSTING,

AND IT WAS JUST UNCOUTH, BUT IT'S REALLY TOUGH

TRYING TO KEEP IT PERFECT AND PEACEFUL ALL THE TIME.

[knocking on door]

- HEY. - HEY, GORGEOUS.

- HOW ARE YOU? - MWAH.

- HOW ARE YOU?

- I'M SORRY, I'M STILL IN THE MIDDLE

OF JUST FINISHING UP RIGHT NOW.

- DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT. DO YOU NEED ANY HELP?

- YOU WANT TO OPEN THAT FOR ME?

WHILE I MAKE-- FINISHING UP

THIS LOVELY, SECRET SAUCE OF MINE.

- ABSOLUTELY.

- DID YOU GUYS GET A CAR?

- I DON'T EVEN KNOW IF MY DAD'S GOING TO EVEN WANT IT.

- DOES HE KNOW YET OR ARE YOU GUYS--

- NO, HE HAS NO IDEA. - LIKE TOTALLY--

- WE'RE JUST GOING TO, LIKE, BRING IT UP

AT HIS ANNIVERSARY PARTY.

- IT'S A BIG PART OF THE PERSIAN CULTURE

TO GIVE VERY LARGE GIFTS.

AND MY PARENTS' ANNIVERSARY IS COMING UP,

SO MY SISTER AND I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A CUTE IDEA

TO JUST GO AHEAD AND GET MY DAD A NEW CAR.

- UM, SO I HAVE SOME BAD NEWS.

I'M TOTALLY HORRIFIED, AND I CANNOT BELIEVE

I'M NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO COME.

- COME WHERE?

- TOMORROW NIGHT TO YOUR PARENTS' PARTY.

THANK THE LORD, THANK THE LORD

I DON'T HAVE TO GO TO GG'S PARENTS' PARTY.

- WHY CAN'T YOU COME?

- BECAUSE I HAVE A BLIND DATE THE SAME NIGHT.

- [sighs]

WELL, IT IS WHAT IT IS, RIGHT?

- I DON'T DO BLIND DATES,

BUT I'M LOOKING FOR A GOOD MAN, LIKE STAT.

I'VE ONLY GOT, LIKE, OH, SO MANY YEARS LEFT

WITH ALL MY S[bleep] JUST IN THE RIGHT PLACE.

- NEXT TIME. - FOR SURE.

- EVEN THOUGH THERE WON'T BE ANOTHER 40.

- [laughs] OH, MY GOD.

- I DON'T KNOW IF ANYONE'S GOING TO MAKE IT TO THE PARTY.

- YOU WANT TO GIVE ME A, LIKE, A PAPER CUT

AND POUR LEMON JUICE IN IT WHILE YOU'RE AT IT?

I FEEL TERRIBLE.

- ARE YOU SURE THIS IS A GOOD THING TO TELL ME THIS

WHILE I HAVE A KNIFE NEAR ME RIGHT NOW?

- SPEAKING OF WHICH, HELLO?

I'VE HEARD SO MUCH ABOUT THEM.

LIKE, MAMBA, JAMBA.

- I NAME MY KNIVES.

MY PASSION FOR KNIVES STARTED AT A VERY, VERY YOUNG AGE.

AS A YOUNG CHILD, I'D ALWAYS GO TO MY RANCH

WITH MY FAMILY, AND WE WOULD SHOOT GUNS,

AND WE WOULD ALWAYS HAVE KNIVES ON US FOR PROTECTION.

SO, I GREW UP WITH KNIVES AND GUNS,

AND IT'S JUST A VERY NATURAL THING FOR ME.

DO YOU WANT TO SEE THEM? - YEAH.

I WANT A, LIKE, INTRODUCTION.

- SERIOUSLY? - NO JOKE.

- LIKE, HELLO, I'M HERE.

- I DON'T WANT YOU TO FREAK OUT AND GO,

LIKE, TELL PEOPLE, "SHE'S LIKE A PSYCHO KNIFE PERSON."

'CAUSE I JUST COLLECT THEM.

- RIGHT.

- YOU KNOW, LIKE, AROUND THE WORLD,

I JUST COLLECTED PIECES.

SO...WANT TO SEE?

- WE DON'T JOKE ABOUT GG AND KNIVES.

IF YOU LOOKED UP GG IN THE DICTIONARY,

THERE'S A PICTURE OF THAT BITCH WITH A MACHETE LIKE THIS.

- THIS IS AFRICA.

[mysterious music]

I NAMED HER AFRICA BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, LIKE, AFRICA,

LIKE A MACHETE KIND OF THING--

- BABE, IS THAT A BLOOD STAIN ON THERE?

- IT--

- NO, I'M KIDDING. [laughs]

- I THOUGHT I WIPED THAT OFF.

- NO, I'M KIDDING. OH.

- THIS IS MADAGASCAR.

- MADAGASCAR IS WAY SHARPER. - MADAGASCAR IS SHARPER.

- THIS LITERALLY--

- THIS IS MORE OF DOING JUST, LIKE, TAKING SOMEONE'S HEAD OFF.

THIS IS MORE OF JUST KIND OF GOING INTO SOMEONE'S HEART,

MADAGASCAR.

- TAKE AN UNSTABLE PERSON AND A GIANT KNIFE...

YEAH.

- AND THEN THIS IS CRISPY. [zap]

- HAS CHRISTY MET ANYONE YET? LIKE, COME INTO CONTACT--

- NO, BUT I'M DYING TO TRY IT. - WHAT?!

- [laughs]

CRISPY IS MY TASER GUN.

SHE'S 150,000 VOLTS OF LOVE.

[zap]

SHE'LL BURN YOUR ASS TO A CRISP.

- I MIGHT HAVE A NIGHTMARE OR TWO ABOUT CRISPY.

- BUT SHE'S JUST SO PRETTY.

[zap]

[laughs] SHE'S SHY.

- I'M NOT GOING TO TALK S[bleep] ABOUT CRISPY.

OR HER MOM.

- [laughs]

[car revs]

- YO, RUSSELL. RUSSELL, HOW ARE YOU, MAN?

HOW ARE YOU, MAN? - WHAT'S UP, SAMMY?

- OKAY, WHAT'S GOING ON.

HOW DID EVERYTHING GO AT THE CITY?

- THE CITY, I WAS THERE FOR FOUR HOURS

GETTING PERMITS FOR MOHAMED.

MOHAMED IS THE ULTIMATE BALLER, PERIOD.

THIS GUY HAS THE PRETTIEST GIRL.

YOU DON'T HAVE A COUSIN FOR ME OR SISTER OR SOMETHING?

COME ON.

- SHE HAS A MOTHER.

- I HAVE AN AUNTIE.

- THE BEST HOUSE,

THE BALLER LIFESTYLE.

AND HUGH HEFNER CALLS MOHAMED AND TAKES NOTES FROM HIM.

THE POOL'S LOOKING AMAZING.

WHO SPENDS $2 MILLION LAYING IN ALL THESE TILES BY HAND?

IF YOU'RE LOOKING TO BUY A HOUSE THAT'S $10 MILLION,

THERE'S HUNDREDS OF THEM FOR SALE,

AND YOU CAN GET THEM ALL DAY LONG HERE IN CALIFORNIA.

UNBELIEVABLE.

I MEAN, I DON'T SPEND $2 MILLION

ON MY WHOLE PROJECTS.

AND THIS GUY SPENDS $2 MILLION

JUST ON THE TILES AND THE FLOOR WORK.

IF YOU WANT A HOME AROUND $50, $55 MILLION,

THERE'S MAYBE THREE HOMES A YEAR THAT COME ON THE MARKET

FOR YOU TO EVEN SEE OR TO CONSIDER.

SO IT'S A VERY SMALL, UNDEVELOPED MARKET

THAT I WANT TO BE IN ONE DAY AS A BUILDER.

YOU KNOW, I LIKE SELLING TO MILLIONAIRES,

BUT I'M TRYING TO PLAY FOR THE BILLIONAIRES.

IMAGINE COMING HERE

WATCHING A MOVIE WITH YOUR 65 CLOSEST FRIENDS.

[chuckling]

YOU GOT TO CHARGE THEM TO COME AND WATCH

A MOVIE IN HERE.

YOU KNOW HOW MUCH OF A PERFECTIONIST MOHAMED IS.

JUST MAKE SURE ALL OF THE EDGES

ARE NICE AND CLEAN.

I DON'T WANT HIM TO COME BACK AND GET ANGRY.

IN PERSIAN CULTURE, MIDDLE EASTERN CULTURE,

THERE IS NO "GOOD JOB, GREAT GOING.

WHATEVER." NO.

IT'S, LIKE, "HOLD ON A SECOND.

YOU GOT A 99? HOW COME YOU DIDN'T GET 100%?"

LET'S GET OUT OF HERE, MAN.

- TWO, PLEASE. - THIS WAY, PLEASE.

- I'M EXTREMELY BLESSED TO HAVE SUCH AMAZING PARENTS

THAT HAVE GIVEN ME ANYTHING THAT I'VE NEEDED

THROUGHOUT MY WHOLE LIFE.

- MAUST'KHIAR. - MAUST'KHIAR?

- AND THEN I'M GOING TO HAVE THE SOLTANI.

- MM-HMM.

- AND I'LL GET YOUR CHICKEN KABOB.

- I WOULD BE AN IDIOT TO SAY

THAT I HAVEN'T LIVED A PAMPERED LIFE.

SO, HOW'S WORK? - HECTIC.

- THANK YOU. - YOU'RE WELCOME.

- HOW WAS YOUR DAY?

- DID A LITTLE SHOPPING.

GOT MY NAILS DONE. THIS ONE'S ALREADY CHIPPED.

- YEAH, VERY HECTIC DAY.

YEAH, YOURS WAS HECTIC, TOO.

- I WAS STUCK IN TRAFFIC HAVING TO GET TO THE MALL.

- I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY.

YOU KNOW, YOU HAVE TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR HABIT.

- WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

- TODAY YOU WENT SHOPPING AGAIN.

YOU KNOW, LET ME SHOW YOU.

SEE?

- OH, F[bleep] MY LIFE.

I DON'T NEED TO SEE THAT.

- YOU DO.

- WHY? - WHY SHOULD I SEE IT?

- THAT'S WHY I COME TO YOUR HOUSE, SO YOU TAKE CARE OF IT.

- I KNOW.

NO, I TAKE CARE OF IT FOR NOW.

I MAY NOT CONTINUE THAT WAY.

SEE, TWO MONTHS IN A ROW.

LAST MONTH'S WAS WHAT? $6,800?

THIS MONTH'S IS $8,500.

- I HAVE TO BUY CLOTHES TO WEAR, DAD.

- OH, YEAH, YEAH, YEAH.

YOU KNOW, FOR $14,000, YOU CAN BUY A BOUTIQUE.

BUYING IS SOMETHING,

BUT YOU'RE OVERSPENDING ON EVERYTHING.

YOU KNOW, UM...

- THANK GOD FOR THE FOOD.

- BEEF SOLTANI FOR YOU.

- YOU CAME IN PERFECT TIMING.

- ALL RIGHT, ENJOY. - THANK YOU.

- THANK YOU VERY MUCH. - THANKS.

- MY PARENTS HAVE THREATENED ME

SO MANY TIMES THAT I'M GOING TO GET CUT OFF.

I'D HAVE A FREAKING HEART ATTACK IF THAT HAPPENED.

- SO IT'S TIME FOR ME TO FIND YOU A PRINCE CHARMING.

- WELL, I'VE BEEN LOOKING.

- I KNOW.

- INSHA'ALLAH. - INSHA'ALLAH.

- PLEASE, SOMEONE TAKE THE BURDEN OFF OF YOU.

- YOU'RE OVERSPENDING ON SHOES.

EVERY DAY, NEW CLOTHES.

I'M TELLING YOU THAT YOU HAVE TO REALLY START

DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

- MY PARENTS WANTED ME TO HAVE A JOB

THROUGHOUT MY WHOLE, LIKE, TEENAGE YEARS.

THEY WANTED ME TO WORK AND DO SOMETHING WITH MYSELF,

BUT I THINK THEY WERE ALSO AFRAID

THAT IF SOMEONE PISSED ME OFF WHILE AT WORK,

GOD FORBID, WHAT WOULD I DO?

- YOUR SISTER IS--

SHE WORKS EVERY DAY.

YOU HAVE TO DO THE SAME.

- MY OLDER SISTER, LEILAH, IS

DEFINITELY A LOT DIFFERENT THAN I AM.

SHE IS A BUSINESSWOMAN.

SHE'S BEEN MARRIED FOR, LIKE, SEVEN YEARS,

SO SHE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT

THAT I'M STILL ON DADDY'S PAYROLL.

- [speaking foreign language]

- I DIDN'T LOSE MY APPETITE.

- I WANT YOU TO LOSE YOUR APPETITE FOR SHOPPING.

- THAT DAY WILL NEVER COME.

- IT BETTER COME.

- COMING UP:

- THIS--ALL THIS HERE. SCRATCHES.

EVERY TIME WHEN THEY TAKE THIS OUT,

THEY SCRATCH THEM.

THIS SHOULD BE DONE AND CLOSED UP.

- YOU WANT TO GO OUTSIDE?

YES. SO EXCITED.

WHICH ONE IS YOURS?

DO YOU FEEL LIKE

N?

DO YOU FEEL AS GOOD AS I DO WHEN I GET

SOMETHING THAT'S BLING-Y AND GOLD?

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY SOON.

TO ME, 34, ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING

I WAS THE ONLY GROWN-UP IN MY HOUSEHOLD

WHEN I WAS A KID,

I JUST FEEL LIKE I'M A FOOL.

ROCK STAR, PABLITO.

[doorbell rings, dogs barking]

REZZIE. UGH.

COME ON IN.

34 IS THE BEGINNING OF WHEN

YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU WANT.

AND IF YOU DON'T WANT TO GET A DIVORCE,

YOU SHOULD GET TO KNOW YOURSELF

BEFORE YOU MARRY ANOTHER PERSON.

- WHERE YOU AT, BABE?

- HI, BABY. - WHAT'S GOING ON?

- MWAH. I DON'T KNOW.

I THINK-- - HI, BOYS.

THEY'RE READY TO GO OUT? - JULIO...

- YEAH. YOU WANT TO GO?

- YEAH.

SO MY DAD CALLED.

- YOU THINK HE WANTS TO, LIKE, RECONNECT?

- HE'S BEEN MAKING A HUGE, HUGE EFFORT.

MY PARENTS GOT A DIVORCE

BECAUSE MY DAD WAS A PHILANDERER.

MY DAD'S PLAYBOY WAYS

BASICALLY DESTROYED THE ENTIRE FAMILY TREE.

I FEEL LIKE WE DID LOSE SOME TIME,

AND, YOU KNOW, I CAN BE A LITTLE, TINY BIT

OF A GRUDGE HOLDER.

- YEAH, TOTALLY.

- I THINK I WANT TO, LIKE, DO A,

"HEY, WE'RE IN NEW YORK."

- WE SHOULD PLAN SOMETHING FOR-- - WOULD YOU COME?

- I WOULD LOVE TO.

- I HAVEN'T SEEN MY DAD IN FOREVER,

AND I'M THINKING THIS COULD BE THE PERFECT TRIP,

REUNITING ME AND MY DAD.

AND WE CAN MOVE FORWARD TOGETHER.

WHO DOESN'T WANT TO GO TO NEW YORK?

- I'M EXCITED. - ARE YOU DOWN?

- I'M SUPER EXCITED.

- I'M THINKING OF CALLING--CALLING MY DOCTOR

AND SEEING IF HE'LL SIGN OFF ON GASTRIC BYPASS FOR ME.

- I KNOW A COUPLE OF PERSIAN DOCTORS THAT WILL.

- HELLO, I'M MORBIDLY OBESE RIGHT NOW.

- REZA, IF YOU'RE MORBIDLY OBESE,

THEN I'M ON OBESITY DEATH ROW.

REZA HAS BEEN HASSLING ME ABOUT LOSING WEIGHT

SINCE I WAS A TEENAGER.

HE'S TRIED TO CONVINCE ME TO GO TO, LIKE,

$5,000-A-WEEK FAT CAMPS IN ARIZONA.

HE'S TRIED TO CONVINCE ME TO JOIN THE MILITARY

JUST TO LOSE WEIGHT.

I MEAN, HE'S, LIKE,

"YOU HAVE TO GET YOUR JAWS WIRED SHUT.

LIKE, TODAY."

- I FEEL LIKE THERE'S SOMETHING WE CAN DO

BEFORE WE GET TO NEW YORK.

- YOU KNOW, LIKE WHAT-- - [gasps]

WE SHOULD GET A-- WHAT DO YOU CALL IT

WHEN YOU GET-- AN ENEMA.

LIKE ONE OF THOSE--

- A COLONIC? - YES.

RIGHT NOW.

- I SWEAR TO GOD, BIBLE,

I WAS GOING TO TREAT YOU TO A COLONIC FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY.

- OKAY, THAT'S-- - I'M NOT EVEN KIDDING.

THAT WAS GOING TO BE MY BIRTHDAY GIFT.

- I THINK WE SHOULD DO IT.

- I THINK WE SHOULD.

- IT'S WORTH IT. LIKE THEY SAY, NO PAIN...

- NO PAIN, NO GAIN?

[laughs]

- HI. BACK AGAIN.

- YES, YES. - WONDERFUL.

HOW YOU'VE BEEN? - GOOD, HOW ABOUT YOURSELF?

- HI, HOW ARE YOU? - HI, NICE TO MEET YOU.

- GG. - ANOUSH.

PLEASE FOLLOW ME. - SURE.

WE NEED A NEW CAR.

- GREAT. YOU JUST BOUGHT ONE.

I KNOW.

THIS ONE'S ACTUALLY A GIFT FOR OUR PARENTS.

IT'S THEIR 40th ANNIVERSARY ON SATURDAY,

SO WE WANTED TO GET THEM A NICE GIFT.

- THAT'S SO SWEET OF YOU GUYS.

- YEAH. - WONDERFUL.

YOU CAN GO AHEAD AND CHECK IT OUT

AND SEE WHAT YOU THINK.

- OKAY.

I LIKE THIS ONE. - THIS IS S63.

THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL, GREAT AMG VEHICLE.

- YEAH. I LIKE THIS ONE.

- DADDY DOES NOT NEED A V-8 ENGINE.

DADDY REPRESENTS GREEN, SUSTAINABLE EVERYTHING.

- BUT USUALLY, YOU KNOW,

THAT'S A PERSIAN'S FAVORITE-FAVORITE.

- THAT'S MY FAVORITE.

- MY DAD IS SO FAR FROM THE TYPICAL PERSIAN.

- I UNDERSTAND. YEAH.

- I WANT TO SHOW YOU SOMETHING

THAT FITS YOUR NEEDS AND WANTS.

- I THINK THIS FITS MY NEEDS AND WANTS.

- AH. - YOU BUY IT.

- MY SISTER AND I ARE COMPLETE OPPOSITES.

SO EVERY TIME WE'RE AROUND EACH OTHER TOO LONG,

IT GETS VERY TENSE AND VERY UNEASY.

- THIS IS AN "E" CLASS THAT I HAVE HERE.

IF YOU DON'T MIND, LET'S... - OKAY.

- THIS PARTICULAR MODEL COMES WITH NAVIGATION,

BLUETOOTH...

- YOU DON'T THINK WE SHOULD GET HIM, LIKE, AN "S" CLASS?

- IT'LL JUST SIT IN THE GARAGE.

THIS IS--I THINK THIS IS BEYOND PERFECT.

I THINK THIS IS IT.

- SO ANOUSH, WHY DON'T WE...

- IT'S VERY COMFY.

- WORK OUT SOME NUMBERS?

LET ME TELL YOU WHAT I WANT.

I NEED AT LEAST 15,000 MILES, NO DOWN,

AND I WANT BASICALLY WALK OUT PAYING NOTHING.

- MY SISTER PLAYS HARDBALL, ALL THE WAY.

SHE'S THE BUSINESS PERSON.

I'M JUST GOING TO SIT THERE AND AGREE

TO THE NUMBER IF IT'S CORRECT.

- I NEED THE DRIVE-OFF AND FIRST YEAR DMV.

- THAT WON'T WORK.

- DON'T LOOK AT ME. SHE'S THE BOSS LADY.

- SHE'S THE BOSS LADY. - YEAH.

- SHE'S THE BOSS LADY.

- THAT DEFINITELY, DEFINITELY WILL NOT WORK FOR ME.

IT'S MORE HER CONTRIBUTION AS FAR THE MONEY--

- YEAH, ARE YOU-- - WHAT?

- ARE YOU GOING TO GO IN ON THIS?

- THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT. WELL, I WAS GOING TO HELP OUT.

RIGHT?

- WELL, IF YOU WANT TO--

- I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE FROM BOTH OF US.

RIGHT?

I HAVE PUT MONEY ASIDE.

ASIDE FROM WHAT YOU THINK,

I JUST ONLY SHOP WITH ALL MY MONEY,

SO I DO WANT THIS.

- IT'S A THREE-YEAR COMMITMENT.

- IT'S VERY TYPICAL OF MY SISTER

TO BRING UP QUESTIONS THAT WE'VE ALREADY DISCUSSED.

IT SEEMS LIKE MY SISTER'S ALWAYS LOOKING

FOR A WAY TO BUST MY BALLS.

- YES. FOR MOMMY AND DADDY, YES.

- OKAY.

I WILL PAY $1,000...

- OKAY.

- FREE MAINTENANCE FOR THE WHOLE TIME,

AND I DON'T WANT MY PAYMENT

TO BE MORE THAN $500 A MONTH.

- REALISTICALLY, $500, IT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

- YOU GET IT TO THAT, WE'RE DONE.

- I NEED TO PUT MY GLASSES ON,

MAKE SURE I SEE THIS RIGHT.

[all laugh]

UH...

I'LL MAKE THAT HAPPEN.

CONGRATULATIONS. - THANK YOU.

- THANK YOU. - ALL RIGHT, YOU GOT IT.

- IN THE PAST, IT DEFINITELY HURT MY FEELINGS

THAT I DIDN'T GET THE LEVEL OF RESPECT

FROM MY SISTER,

BUT NOW IT'S JUST-- I DON'T REALLY CARE.

[saw buzzing]

- SO MOHAMED JUST CAME BACK FROM HIS HOLIDAY.

MOHAMED'S STAMP OF APPROVAL TO ME IS HUGE.

RIGHT NOW, I'M A LITTLE NERVOUS.

WOW, THIS CAME OUT FANTASTIC.

- HEY. WHY--

WHY ARE YOU ALL DRESSED UP FOR?

WHAT, YOU THINK IT'S A PARTY?

- OF COURSE, YOU'RE BACK. - NICE TO SEE YOU.

- OF COURSE IT'S A--

- YOU KNOW I'M ONLY INTERESTED IN THIS.

I HAVE MY SCULPTURE. OH, MY GOD.

SO WHAT'S HAPPENING HERE?

WHY IS IT BREAKING DOWN THERE ON THE SIDE?

- THAT'S AS FAR AS WE CAN GET THE SHEET.

- YEAH. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THAT?

- THIS IS THE THIRD PUMP WE'VE TRIED SO FAR.

- I KNOW, I KNOW.

- YOU WANT A HEAVIER ONE, NO PROBLEM.

- I THINK A HEAVIER ONE, BECAUSE THIS IS 220.

SO WE CAN PUT A LITTLE BIT EXTRA

AND JUST LET IT FALL OVER, RIGHT?

- OKAY.

- HOW COME THERE'S, LIKE, ANOTHER 10, 12 PEOPLE HERE?

WHAT'S GOING ON?

- WELL, WE WANTED TO SURPRISE YOU A LITTLE BIT

WHILE YOU WERE GONE.

- WHAT DID YOU DO?

- SO I HIRED 13 MORE OF MY GUYS.

- REALLY?

- PAID A COUPLE OF YOUR GUYS OVERTIME,

AND I GAVE RUSSELL A $5,000 BONUS

IF WE CAN GET TEN DAYS AHEAD OF SCHEDULE.

- HEY!

GET THAT CUP OF COFFEE OFF THE--OFF THE ROOF.

TAKE IT OFF.

- LET'S GO IN AND SEE WHAT'S GOING ON.

- ALL RIGHT.

- YOU GOTTA GET OUT OF HERE, MAN.

BEEN HERE FOR, LIKE, A WEEK NOW

JUST PUTTING TWO WIRES IN.

DON'T LET HIM-- GET HIM OUT OF HERE.

WE GOT TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THESE WINDOWS, MAN.

WE GOT TO GET THEM RIGHT AND PUT THEM UP.

YOUR TIME IS UP!

IF WE DON'T MOVE RIGHT NOW,

THEN WE'LL NEVER FINISH THIS HOUSE.

- YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES YOU THINK YOU'RE DOING

A FANTASTIC, AWESOME, AMAZING JOB FOR HIM,

AND HE'S, LIKE, "WHY ARE YOU DOING IT THIS WAY?

YOU DO IT THIS WAY, AND IT'S MUCH EASIER."

- SO WE HAVE A LITTLE FEW SCRATCHES

I THINK WE NEED TO TAKE CARE OF.

THIS, ALL THIS HERE. SCRATCHES.

EVERY TIME THEY TAKE THIS OUT,

THEY SCRATCH-- THEY SCRATCH THEM.

THEY CAN'T--

YOU GOT TO STOP DOING THAT.

THIS SHOULD BE DONE AND CLOSED UP.

- [sighs]

- YOU KNOW, I'M SORRY. I'M A LITTLE ANAL.

- YES, IT'S OKAY.

- I HEARD YOU SAY THAT TO SOMEBODY BEHIND MY BACK.

YOU SAID, "OH, HE'S ANAL."

- OF COURSE. I'M HAPPY YOU'RE LIKE THAT.

- YEAH, OKAY.

- I COULDN'T REALLY BREATHE FOR THE LAST TWO WEEKS.

AND NOW IT'S JUST KIND OF, LIKE--

[exhales] I CAN BREATHE.

AND I'M SO HAPPY TO HEAR THAT'S HE'S HAPPY.

- WELL, THANK YOU. YOU DID A GREAT JOB, MAN.

- THE FACT THAT HE SAID I DID A GOOD JOB,

I THINK I'M GOING TO GO TONIGHT,

GO OUT CLUBBING, GET DRUNK, GET A TABLE,

AND JUST F[bleep]IN' RELAX.

- ONE OF THE BIGGEST ISSUES WAS

MAKING SURE MY DAD DIDN'T FLIRT WITH SOMEBODY, OR--

- LET HIM FLIRT.

HE WANT TO BE FREE.

WHY DO YOU WANT TO BE PUT INTO THE CAGE?

WHY DO YOU WANT TO LIMIT HIM?

- WHAT? WOW.

- CAGE?

MY DAD'S NENE WHO I'VE ONLY MET,

LIKE TWICE IN MY WHOLE LIFE,

SHE'S GOING TO BE IN NEW YORK WHILE WE'RE THERE.

I CAN COUNT ON ONE HAND THE NUMBER OF TIMES

I'VE SEEN MY GRANDMOTHER IN MY WHOLE LIFE,

AND I'M 38 F[bleep]G YEARS OLD.

- YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER, THEY COULD NOT GET ALONG.

THAT'S THE REASON THEY GOT DIVORCED.

THAT SHOULDN'T BE YOUR ISSUE.

CHILDREN ARE SEPARATE.

AND THAT SHOULDN'T BOTHER YOU.

- MOM, YOU NEED THERAPY. - [laughs]

- I SWEAR TO GOD,

YOU NEED SOME LESSONS IN COMPASSION.

YOU CAN'T JUST KEEP TELLING PEOPLE THAT

WHATEVER THEY CARE ABOUT DOESN'T MATTER

AND THEY SHOULD JUST GET OVER IT.

- I CALL HIM HUGH HEFNER.

- YEAH? OH.

HE'S A REAL PLAYBOY.

- OH, YEAH. - OH, YEAH.

- LET HIM FLIRT. LET HIM FLIRT.

- WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? - LET HIM TALK.

- THAT'S SO EASY FOR YOU TO SAY.

THAT'S SO EASY. - LET HIM FLIRT.

- MOM, SEE, THAT'S THE PROBLEM--IS THAT--

- HE'S STILL YOUNG-- HIS HEART, IN HEART.

NO BIG DEAL. - GET OVER IT?

- OF COURSE.

WHY YOU WANT TO PUT HIM IN THE CAGE?

WHY YOU WANT TO PUT HIM IN THE CAGE?

- WHAT? - WHY YOU WANT TO LIMIT HIM?

- WOW. - CAGE?

ARE YOU SERIOUS, VIDA?

LIKE, FOR MOST PEOPLE, MONOGAMY IS A PART OF MARRIAGE.

- YES, I MEAN, HE WANT TO BE FREE.

- WOW.

MY PARENTS' MARRIAGE STARTED TO UNRAVEL

WHEN I WAS SIX YEARS OLD.

I REMEMBER THIS ARGUMENT VERY VIVIDLY

THAT MY DAD WAS YELLING AT MY MOM

BECAUSE THERE WAS ANOTHER MAN IN THE SCENE.

FLIRTING IS NOT SOMETHING THAT YOU WANT TO SEE

YOUR PARENTS DOING IN THE SAME ROOM AS EACH OTHER.

YOU KNOW? - NO.

- MY MOM IS SO DEFENSIVE BECAUSE

SHE REFUSES TO ACCEPT THE FACT THAT

WHAT YOU DO CAN AFFECT YOUR CHILDREN

20-PLUS YEARS DOWN THE LINE.

- MJ, WE GOT TO GET YOU A CLOCK, BABY.

- YOU COME TO MY PARENTS AND DISRESPECT THEM,

YOU AND I GOT A PROBLEM.

- GG'S WRATH WAS ON ITS WAY.

- HEY.

- WHAT'S UP, PETE? - WHAT'S UP, MAN?

- WHAT'S UP, COUS? HOW ARE YOU, MAN?

PERSIANS HAVE A HOOKUP WITH EVERYTHING.

I GOT A COUSIN WHO'S GOT A BOMB JEWELRY STORE.

YOU KNOW, HE JUST GIVES ME THE FAMILY LOVE.

AND IN RETURN, I SEND HIM 10, 20 CLIENTS A YEAR,

AND IT'S COOL.

YOU KNOW, MY GIRLFRIEND, MJ?

- YEAH. - IT'S HER BIRTHDAY.

SO I NEED TO GET HER SOMETHING--

SOMETHING LIKE 2,000, 3,000 BUCKS.

- THESE ARE REALLY COOL.

- THESE ARE AWESOME,

BUT DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS?

SHE PARTIES.

THE BOTTOM PARTS OF THESE WILL GO MISSING.

- [laughs] JUST STICK TO STUDS, MAN.

JUST NICE AND CLASSIC.

THESE FOR YOU ARE $2,800.

- YEAH, $2,800 IS COOL.

THERE'S DEFINITELY NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE IN MY LIFE

THAT I WOULD BUY REALLY EXPENSIVE EARRINGS FOR,

BUT LET'S JUST SAY MJ'S ONE OF THEM.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU. - YOU TOO.

- THANKS FOR HOOKING UP.

- ARE YOU EXCITED? - HI.

- HELLO. - YES, I'M EXCITED.

DOESN'T EVERYONE GIVE EACH OTHER

COLONICS FOR THEIR BIRTHDAY?

- SO ARE YOU GOING TO BUY ME DINNER FIRST,

OR IS IT LIKE, WHAM, BAM, THANK YOU MA'AM?

- WE'RE PRETTY MUCH WHAM, BAM, THANK YOU MA'AM.

- ALL RIGHTY, WELL.

- I FEEL A COMBINATION OF MORE RELAXED

BECAUSE I'M IN THE GOWN, AND THEN I'M MORE NERVOUS

'CAUSE I FEEL, LIKE, A LITTLE DRAFT.

REZA DECIDES THAT I'M MORBIDLY OBESE,

AND THE SECRET WEIGHT LOSS IS TO GO GET COLONICS.

- SO FOR YOU, MY DEAR,

WE HAVE THE "BOTTOMS-UP BALM"

I DON'T SKIMP ON ANYTHING.

GLOVES OR LUBRICANT.

- FEEL FREE TO COMPLIMENT ME ON ANYTHING--

- ANY BODY PARTS?

- YEAH, THAT YOU SEE BACK THERE. - OKAY.

- OH, MY GOD. - BREATHE.

- DO YOU HAVE ANY PORNO MAGAZINES OR ANYTHING?

- OH...GOD.

IF I'M GOING TO HAVE SOMEONE STICK A TUBE UP MY BUTT,

THE RETURN BETTER BE LIKE, 5, 10, 15, 20 POUNDS.

LIKE, SOMETHING.

- TAKE A NICE, DEEP BREATH.

- [inhales]

- AND START THE INSERTION.

- [groans, laughs]

- KEEP BREATHING.

- REZA, YOU'RE OVERLY-- YOU'RE AWFULLY QUIET IN THERE.

- HOW FAR IN DOES THIS THING NEED TO GO?

- A LITTLE FURTHER. - OH, MY GOD.

[laughs]

- KEEP BREATHING.

- YOU'LL KNOW. - [shrieks]

[laughs] NO, NO.

- WE HAVEN'T EVEN DONE ANYTHING YET.

- SO LET'S HAVE YOU COME ON-- OVER ONTO YOUR BACK.

- YOU WANT ME TO MOVE WITH THIS THING IN MY BUTT?

ROLLING FROM MY SIDE TO MY BACK

CAN ONLY BE DESCRIBED AS THIS:

IMAGINE THAT SOMEONE WAS TRYING TO SHOVE

THE BEVERLY CENTER UP YOUR BUTT.

OKAY? AND IT GOT HALFWAY IN.

I'M GOING TO LIE DOWN? - MM-HMM.

- AND THE BEVERLY CENTER WENT ALL THE WAY UP YOUR BUTT.

[laughs in pain]

- KEEP BREATHING.

- I HATE YOU, REZA.

- HAS IT EVER, LIKE, POPPED OFF AND, LIKE,

JUST GONE EVERYWHERE?

- IT HAS. - IT HAS?

- ARE YOU SURE YOU DON'T WANT TO SEE IT?

- YES. I'M SURE.

- IT'S SO COOL TO SEE IT,

'CAUSE THEN YOU KNOW YOU'RE RELEASING.

- I FEEL LIKE I MIGHT GET SICK LOOKING AT IT.

I'M, LIKE, "NO. NO. NO."

- ALL RIGHT, HONEY. YOU'RE DONE.

GOOD JOB. - OH, MY GOD.

- ARE YOU DONE?

- YES, I'M DONE, THANK GOD.

IS THIS FOLLOWING STATEMENT TRUE OR FALSE:

I AM FINISHED BEFORE REZA BECAUSE I HAVE LESS GARBAGE

THAN REZA?

- FALSE. - FALSE.

FALSE? - FALSE.

- SHE SAID YOU WERE MISERABLE.

- 'CAUSE I COULDN'T RELAX MY BUTTHOLE.

- THAT'S NOT USUALLY A PROBLEM, IS IT?

- NO. - OR--

- IT'S MUCH MORE FAMILIAR

FOR YOU ANYWAY THOUGH, REZA,

SO THAT'S AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE.

- GIRL, PLEASE.

WE HEARD THINGS WERE COMING OUT OF YOU.

LIKE THAT CARTIER WATCH YOUR MOM WAS LOOKING FOR.

- I GOT NOTHING OUT OF THIS EXPERIENCE.

NOTHING. I DIDN'T EVEN LOSE WEIGHT.

I LOST FOUR HOURS OF MY LIFE. THAT'S ALL.

- I'M PETRIFIED GOING INTO THIS BLIND DATE.

I AM A TRUE ROMANTIC AT HEART, AND I DO WANT TO SETTLE DOWN.

I DON'T WANT TO BE A PLAYBOY LIKE MY DAD.

I WAS IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH A MAN,

AND I REENACTED WHAT MY DAD DID WITH MY MOM

WITH MY BOYFRIEND OF SEVEN YEARS, DENNIS.

CHEATING ON DENNIS WAS THE BIGGEST MISTAKE OF MY LIFE.

- HELLO, THERE, SIR. HOW ARE YOU?

- I'M DOING WELL.

I'M IN DESPERATE NEED OF A COCKTAIL.

- WELL, I CAN HELP YOU WITH THAT.

NO PROBLEM.

- I'M A BIG FAN OF THE GEMINI. - GREAT CHOICE.

LOVE IT. MAKE IT A LITTLE SPICY, HUH?

- YEAH. - BE RIGHT BACK.

- I DON'T DO BLIND DATES,

BUT I WAS AT SAMMY'S POOL PARTY,

AND I SEE THIS GIRL HONE IN ON ME.

- ONE OF THE GUYS THAT WORKS WITH ME,

THE MOST GORGEOUS GAY GUY YOU'VE EVER SEEN.

HE'S SINGLE, AND HE DRESSES

BETTER THAN YOU. - [laughs]

I THINK SHE GOT ME AT THE PERFECT MOMENT.

I HAD A COUPLE DRINKS IN ME. I DON'T KNOW.

THE STARS WERE ALL LINED UP FOR IT TO GO DOWN.

HEY.

- HI. - HOW ARE YOU?

- I'M GOOD, HOW ARE YOU? - REZA.

- I'M A LITTLE NERVE-RACKED, BUT GOOD.

- WHAT'S YOUR NAME? - CHEYENNE.

- HEY. - NICE TO MEET YOU.

- NICE TO MEET YOU.

IS THE KID EVEN 21?

I'M THINKING CHRIS HANSEN FROM TO CATCH A PREDATOR

IS GOING TO BE TURNING THE CORNER ANY MINUTE.

- I'VE NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE.

- I'VE DONE THIS ONCE BEFORE, AND IT WAS--

- A BLIND DATE?

- THE BIGGEST DISASTER OF MY LIFE.

[chuckles] OH, MY GOD.

- ALL RIGHT, GENTLEMEN. ARE WE READY TO ORDER YET?

- ARE YOU GOING TO GET ANYTHING TO START?

- I'LL DO THE HEIRLOOM TOMATO SALAD.

- I'LL HAVE THE BEET SALAD, PLEASE.

- ALL RIGHT, GENTLEMEN. - THAT SOUNDS REALLY GOOD.

- YOU CAN HAVE SOME OF MINE. WE CAN SHARE.

DO YOU LIKE SHARING?

- IT DEPENDS ON WHAT I'M SHARING.

- SALAD.

- SALAD'S FINE. - OKAY.

BODILY FLUIDS, NOT SO MUCH. I'M KIDDING.

- OH, MY GOD. [laughter]

I'M, LIKE, HOLY CRAP.

- DID THAT JUST GIVE YOU ANXIETY?

- SHALL I FAN YOU?

- I'M, LIKE, I SHOULD'VE ORDERED XANAX.

WHERE'S MY MENU?

- UM, TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF.

- WELL, I WORK WITH WARDROBE MANAGEMENT

AT STYLE HOUSE.

- SO, LIKE, DO YOU HAVE THE HOOKUP?

- THE HOOKUP? - YEAH, LIKE--

- DO I GET A DISCOUNT EVERYWHERE?

- YEAH. - OF COURSE.

- CAN YOU HOOK ME THE HELL UP?

- YEAH. OF COURSE I CAN.

- WELL, SO FAR I'M REALLY LIKING YOU NOW.

- OH, TRUST ME, I LOVE THE FULL-SERVICE AMENITIES, TOO.

- THANK YOU. - THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THIS LOOKS GREAT.

- HOW MANY BOYFRIENDS HAVE YOU HAD?

- THIS YEAR?

- HE LOOKS LIKE HE'S STRAIGHT OUT OF THE WOMB.

HOW COULD HE HAVE HAD A LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIP?

EVEN IF HE HAD HAD ONE, IT WOULDN'T HAVE MEANT ANYTHING.

HE'S 12.

- HOW MANY BOYFRIENDS HAVE YOU HAD?

MM, MM, MM. - MM-MM.

- FOUR. - FOUR.

IN, LIKE, WHAT TIME SPAN?

- LIKE, MY WHOLE LIFE.

- [laughs]

- THIS IS NOT A JOKE. I'M NOT KIDDING YOU.

- MAYBE I SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN A COCKTAIL.

I'M SEARCHING FOR GREEN EXIT SIGNS EVERYWHERE.

- THERE ARE TWO THIS WAY, AND TWO--

- I HAVE MY VALET TICKET IN HAND, I'M LIKE,

"SOMEBODY GET ME OUT OF HERE."

- ON A SCALE OF ONE TO TEN,

I WOULD SAY THE DATE WAS A THREE.

CHEYENNE IS WAY TOO YOUNG FOR ME,

AND THIS IS DEFINITELY,

DEFINITELY-- DID I SAY DEFINITELY?

THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT A RELATIONSHIP IN THE MAKING.

- TONIGHT IS MY PARENTS' 40TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY.

NOT A LOT OF MARRIAGES LAST FOR 40 YEARS,

SO THIS IS A GREAT OCCASION

AND OPPORTUNITY FOR ME TO SHOW

MY LOVE AND RESPECT FOR MY PARENTS.

[laughs]

- THE WHISKY MAKES YOU FRISKY!

- HEY, SAEEDEH. HOW ARE YOU?

HOW ARE YOU? - FINE, HOW ARE YOU?

OH, MY GOD.

- [laughs]

THERE'S JORDAN. WAIT, WAIT, WAIT. JORDAN.

WHAT KIND OF SHOES ARE MOMMY AND GG WEARING?

- CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN.

- CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN. HIGH-FIVE, PRINCESS.

THAT'S RIGHT.

I LOVE MY PARENTS, AND I WILL SHOW THEM

THE UTMOST RESPECT BY BEING NICE.

I'M NOT LETTING ANYTHING SET ME OFF TONIGHT.

MOMMY, DAD. WHERE ARE YOU GUYS?

- IN THE KITCHEN. - KITCHEN.

- THERE'S A SITUATION. CAN YOU GUYS COME HERE, PLEASE?

- WHAT HAPPENED?

- I DON'T KNOW. SOMEONE'S PARKED RIGHT HERE.

- WHAT? - GUYS!

- WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

- HAPPY ANNIVERSARY. - WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

- YOU PICKED THAT FOR US? - FOR US?

- IT'S A GIFT. - I DON'T WANT IT.

- GO AND SIT INSIDE. - OH, MY GOD.

- I CAN'T ACCEPT THAT. - I CAN'T BELIEVE IT.

- OH, GOD, DAD. - YES, YOU CAN, AND YOU WILL.

- NO. - YOU BOUGHT ME A CAR.

IT'S OKAY.

- YEAH, I BOUGHT MY DAUGHTER A CAR.

- WELL, WE BOUGHT OUR PARENTS A CAR.

- WHO AM I SPENDING MY MONEY FOR?

- MY PARENTS ARE COMPLETE OPPOSITES.

I MEAN, THAT'S WHY IT WORKS SO WELL BETWEEN THE BOTH OF THEM.

MY MOM IS EXCITED AND LOUD AND HAPPY.

SHE'S, LIKE, "MY KIDS DID A GREAT THING."

AND SHE'S TRYING TO GET MY DAD HYPED UP ABOUT IT,

BUT MY DAD IS JUST VERY...

[quietly] "OKAY."

YOU KNOW, THEY'RE JUST VERY DIFFERENT.

- HAPPY ANNIVERSARY. - THANK YOU, JUUN.

- HIGH-FIVE. GOOD JOB.

- YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE DONE THAT. - IT'S NOTHING.

- WHOO, PARTY TIME, RIGHT?

- MWAH. - MWAH.

- SHE WANTS ANOTHER KISS. [laughs]

OKAY, LET'S GO PARTY.

IT'S NICE TO SEE YOU.

OH, YEAH. - THAT'S FANTASTIC.

IT'S VERY INSPIRING TO SEE PEOPLE MARRIED THAT LONG.

WHEN TWO PEOPLE HAVE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

FOR ONE ANOTHER

AND ARE WILLING TO DO ANYTHING FOR ONE ANOTHER,

IT'S A GREAT RELATIONSHIP.

- WHAT ARE YOU DOING ON THE FLOOR?

YOU'RE GOING TO GET DIRTY.

- SOMEDAY, I WANT TO SETTLE DOWN,

AND HAVE A FAMILY.

I WANT TO BE MARRIED, I WANT TO HAVE CHILDREN.

I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S JUST YET.

I KNOW YOU DON'T KNOW ME, BUT I'VE KNOWN YOUR MOM FOREVER.

CAN I HAVE A HUG? JUST ONE QUICK ONE?

HUG, HUG, HUG, HUG? - MM!

OKAY, I'M SORRY. I'LL GIVE YOU--NO, NO.

AND WE WENT THROUGH IT, AND WE CAME OUT,

AND SHE'S SHOWING UP TO MY PARENTS' ANNIVERSARY PARTY,

IT'S A GREAT FEELING.

- MOMMY, DADDY, THIS IS ASA.

- HI. SALAM.

- I WAS LATE BECAUSE I WAS AT HOME

WAITING FOR MJ TO COME GET ME.

I KNEW IT WAS A BAD IDEA FROM THE BEGINNING.

I JUST KNEW IT, KNEW IT, KNEW IT.

ARE YOU HAVING FUN? THANK YOU FOR COMING, ASA.

- I'M HAVING SO MUCH FUN. I'M LOVING IT.

YOU GUYS, STOP STRESSING. PARTIES--STUFF HAPPENS.

WHO CARES?

- I--THAT'S SOMETHING VERY RUDE, YOU KNOW?

I WAS DEFINITELY TRYING TO REMIND MYSELF

TO KEEP A LID ON MY ANGER, AND NOT LET IT OUT RIGHT HERE.

FOR MY PARENTS' 40TH, YOU KNOW, ANNIVERSARY,

THE DAY OF IT...

- WE'RE HAVING SUCH A GOOD TIME.

- JUST FORGET ABOUT IT. JUST ENJOY IT.

- BEING THREE HOURS LATE SHOULD NOT EVER BE CONSIDERED

PERSIAN STANDARD TIME.

IT'S CONSIDERED DISRESPECTFUL, CLASSLESS TIME.

- HEY, EVERYBODY.

EVERYBODY, WE'RE GOING TO CUT THE CAKE.

IF EVERYONE CAN JUST COME IN FOR A SECOND.

- MJ, WE GOT TO GET YOU A CLOCK, BABY.

- SOMEONE CAN BE DISRESPECTFUL TO ME IN MY HOUSE,

THAT'S ONE THING.

YOU COME TO MY PARENTS AND DISRESPECT THEM

IN MY PRESENCE...

YOU AND I GOT A PROBLEM.

- I DON'T WANT TO WALK INTO A PARTY WITH EXCUSES,

SO I'M JUST GOING TO KEEP MY MOUTH SHUT.

I HAD A LOT GOING ON TODAY,

AND IT MIGHT BE A REALITY CHECK FOR PEOPLE WHO LIVE

ON THEIR FATHER'S DOLLAR,

BUT FOR PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT THEMSELVES

AS A BUSINESSWOMAN,

THIS IS NORMAL.

WORK TAKES PRIORITY OVER PARTIES.

THINGS CHANGE, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

SOMETIMES, I'M EARLY.

SOMETIMES, I'M LATE.

- BABY, WHEN HAVE YOU EVER BEEN EARLY?

- EVEN THOUGH GG GREETED ME WARMLY,

I STILL FELT LIKE THE WRATH WAS ON ITS WAY.

IT'S, LIKE, "COMING SOON TO A THEATER NEAR YOU."

[singing in foreign language]

- WE ALL HAVE THINGS GOING ON.

IF YOU ARE REALLY THAT INVOLVED WITH YOUR THINGS,

DON'T SHOW UP FOUR HOURS LATE. DON'T SHOW UP RUDE.

JUST SAY YOU CAN'T COME TO THE PARTY.

- GUYS, I GOTTA GO. - YOU'RE LEAVING?

- YEAH. - BYE.

GOOD TO SEE YOU.

- I WISH I COULD STAY LONGER,

BUT THANK GOD I DIDN'T WAIT FOR YOUR ASS TO COME PICK ME UP.

OKAY?

- WHY WOULD I COME TO VENICE WHEN I HAVE TO GO--

- BECAUSE YOU SAID YOU WOULD.

- YOU GUYS, YOU'RE BEING REALLY UNREASONABLE.

- NO, MERCE.

- YES.

- I LOVE YOU, BUT YOU'RE UNREASONABLE.

- JUST RELAX, SWEETHEART.

- THIS NIGHT IS ALL ABOUT MY PARENTS' HAPPINESS.

AND I JUST WANT NOTHING TO TAKE AWAY FROM IT.

- YAY, 40 YEARS.

[cheers and applause]

I'LL HANDLE MY SITUATION WITH MJ AND HER RUDENESS

AT AN APPROPRIATE TIME.

- MWAH.

[laughter]

- NEXT ON SHAHS OF SUNSET:

- YOU GOT SOME ISSUES.

IT'S SO EASY TO TICK YOU OFF.

YOU'RE LIKE A TICKING TIME BOMB.

- NO, YOU DON'T WANT TO STEP UP TO ME.

- YOU DON'T WANT TO STEP UP TO ME, LITTLE GIRL.

- I'M STEPPING THE F[bleep] UP TO YOU, RIGHT NOW.

SHOW ME WHAT THE F[bleep] YOU GOT.

- GROW UP! - F[bleep] YOU!

AND YOUR EX-WIFE'S LIFE.

YOU DIDN'T EVEN CARE IF I WAS DEAD OR ALIVE.
