Ryan: It's Kara. Hey.
Kara: Ryan, where are you? We're having a meltdown here.
Ryan: What's going on? What happened?
Kara: It's Jim. Can you get back here? We need your help.
Ryan: Okay. We got to go.
Alex: I'll grab your suit.
Ryan: Thanks. What happened?
kara: Jim's got cold feet.
Kara: Yeah, that's how cold feet work.
Ryan: What do you want me to do?
Kara: Talk to him.
Ryan: You want me to talk to him?
Kara: Hey, it's either you or me. You know my track record. I've already struck out once.
Ryan: I haven't been to bat. I haven't been in the dugout.
Kara: Don't you talk for a living? Motivational-type stuff?
Ryan: I tell people how to avoid commitment.
Kara: What kind of fucked-up message is that?
Ryan: It's a philosophy.
Kara: It's stupid.
Ryan: Hey, it could have helped you.
Kara: Ryan, you haven't been around much. Fuck, basically, you don't exist to us. I know you wanna be there for her. Well, here it is. This is your chance.
Jim: Hey. What's up, Ryan?
Jim: You ever read this before?
Ryan: Yeah, it's pretty powerful stuff.
jim: Yeah, I'll say.
Ryan: Kara mentioned that you were having some thoughts.
Jim: I don't think I'm gonna be able to do this.
Ryan: And why would you say that today?
Jim: Well, last night I was kind of laying in bed and I couldn't get to sleep, so I started thinking about the wedding and the ceremony, and about our buying a house and moving in together, and having a kid and then having another kid. And then Christmas and Thanksgiving and spring break and going to football games. And then, all of a sudden, they're graduating, they're getting jobs, and they're getting married, and, you know, I'm a grandparent. And then I'm retired. I'm losing my hair. I'm getting fat. And then the next thing you know, I'm dead. I'm just, like... I can't stop from thinking, "What's the point?" I mean, what is the point?
Ryan: The point?
Jim: Yeah, I mean, what am I starting here?
Ryan: Jim, it's marriage. It's one of the most beautiful things on earth. It's what people aspire to.
Jim: You never got married.
Ryan: That's true.
Jim: I mean, you never even tried.
Ryan: Well, it's hard to define try.
Jim: I don't know, just...You seem happier than all my married friends.
Ryan: Look, Jim, I'm not gonna lie to you. Marriage can be a pain in the ass. And you're kind of right. This all is just stuff that leads to your eventual demise. And we're all on running clocks, and they can't be slowed down or paused, and, you know, we all end up in the same place. There is no point.
Jim: There is no point. That's what I'm saying.
Ryan: You know, I'm not normally the guy you would talk to about stuff like this. If you think about it, your favorite memories, the most important moments in your life, were you alone?
Jim: No, I guess not.
Ryan: Hey, come to think of it, last night, the night before your wedding, when all this shit is swirling around in your head, weren't you guys sleeping in separate bedrooms?
Jim: Yeah, Julie went back to the apartment, and I was just by myself in the honeymoon suite.
Ryan: Kind of Ionely, huh?
Jim: Yes, it was pretty Ionely.
Ryan: Life's better with company. Everybody needs a co-pilot.
Jim: That was a nice touch.
Jim: So, what's the mood like out there?
Ryan: It's not good.
Jim: She's pretty pissed?
Ryan: She's upset.
Jim: What should I do?
Ryan: Go get her.
Jim: I'm such a fuck-up. I love you so much. Will you be my co-pilot?
Julie: Yes. Yes.
