It's round one of our three-song special.

Everybody, make some noise.

Justice is served.

Lucy Liu!

Hey, Lucy Liu!

Hey, Lucy Liu, come here.

This is my boy, Danny.

You mind taking him for a good time? What? No.

Don't be a pussy. No, I'm fine.

Let's go. Go on, Danny.

Danny, go. Come on. Come on.

Danny! Danny! Danny! - Get it!

Danny! Danny! Danny!


Who hurt you?

What did Daddy do to you?

Come on, you can tell me.

Uh-oh. Uh-oh.

Who wants to let me give them a dance?

You want a dance? No, thank you.

Hello. How you doing?

Back off, bitch.

So, minus 40% is $287.

Minus $160.

You said it was $130.

Well, you got here after five, didn't you?

Bye, new girl.

Is he bothering you?

Listen, he bothers you, you got my number, right?

You need anything, you call me.

Someone to talk to. Coke. Anything.

You wanna keep working that VIP. All right?

All right.

I love the recently-divorced.

I made everything I need to.

Oh, my God. That couple that I was dancing for, they were generous, but his breath was, like, hot.

Hey there, sexy, how you doing?

Figure she loses a husband, she's gotta get surgery...

She got hit by a stick. Does that count as surgery?

She looks like she was sucking on a lemon.

All right, Grandma. I gotta go.

Did you get something to eat?

I'm gonna eat at the diner, okay?

What happened to your necklace?

It's fine, Dorothy.

Here. No, you keep it.

What do I need it for? Come on.

You take such good care of me.

I'll see you later, okay?

And now, let's welcome to the main stage, the one, the only... Ramona.

Doesn't money make you horny?

Hey, can I get a light?

Yeah.

Where's your coat?

I left it inside.

Yeah? Climb in my fur.

Come on.

Okay.

Freeze out here. I know.

So, is Justice, like, really a model?

Yeah, she'd like to think so.

I mean, some of the girls have been in, like, Playboy, Hustler.

I was a centerfold once.

No way.

'93.

No fucking way. Mm-hmm.

Oh, my God.

Back when Stevie Wonder came in.

What the fuck did Stevie Wonder come to the club for?

Casey had him in the Champagne Room.

Swears to God he isn't blind.

Wow.

How come you're so good?

I see you with every single kinda guy, and...

I don't know, it's like you have 'em all figured out.

I guess I'm just a people person.

You know? It's easier if you think of them as, like, your rich friends, you know?

Some of them are not so bad.

Where else you dance?

I was at Sin City... for way too long. Mmm.

Then I heard some boiler room guys saying how all the money was in the city, so...

So, you followed the green brick road?

Yup. So far so good?

I mean, it's okay.

Get out.

I mean, you must be cleaning up.

You're new.

You're fucking gorgeous.

You're Asian.

It's like a triple threat.

But I'm not that good.

I mean, if I...

Maybe if you, like, I don't know, showed me moves.

Maybe we could work together.

You know?

I could give you a crash course in this place.

Introduce you to some of my regulars.

It's just mostly Wall Street guys looking to spend money on pretty girls.

What do you think of that?

Yeah, that would be cool. Mm-hmm.

So, it was Ramona's idea that you two work together?

Yes, that's right.

And at this point, everything was aboveboard.

I mean, I thought she was nice.

And when would you say that things got out of control?

Ramona was always in control.

Front hook.

Ankle hook. Yup.

Knee hook.

Hold on with that knee.

Okay.

From here, you could do the carousel.

Put your head back.

Come down.

You can do Peter Pan.

Knee hook.

Just spin.

Jesus Christ.

Then you can go into a fairy sit.

Oh.

Stag.

That's pretty. Reverse stag.

That's pretty too.

Scissor sit.

Table top.

I can't do that.

You can do that. You're gonna do that.

A climb.

What if you don't have muscles to do that?

You have muscles to do this. I don't have any.

Every girl has muscles to do this.

You could do this one, this is a martini.

Fireman down.

Boom.

That's... pretty good. Ready?

Push it, baby.

You go.

There you go. Just point your toes. Okay.

There you go. Hold yourself up.

I'm trying.

Try laying flat across. Do a tabletop.

They all love seeing that. Makes you look strong.

Okay.

There you go. Yes. Okay. Yeah?

This does hurt my vagina. Can you grab your foot?

There you go.

This doesn't look sexy. You know what?

Thumb up your butt, almost. Thumb up my butt?

You know how to do that. How do I...

Put your head back. I'm gonna fall.

You're not gonna fall. Straighten your legs out.

Both of them? Point your toes.

Yes! Yeah, point your toe.

Oh, my God.

We gotta get you outta those training pumps into a good shoe.

I know. It's hard for me to balance.

No. It's easier in these.

Hey, you know Diamond from the Bronx, right?

What's up, baby-boogie-down- fucking-Bronx-bitch?

Come on, she's gonna help you.

You're gonna help me? You're gonna help us out right now.

Get in the chair. Okay.

Get in the chair.

You're gonna help her learn how to do a real dance.

Oh, my gosh. Okay. I'm good with that.

Okay. Come on. Show me what the fuck you got.

There, that's good.

I really just go like that.

No, wait. Wait. Oh, my God. What are you doing?

I'm trying to grind his dick. Arch your back more.

Oh, my. Move your hair, look at me or something.

Push your butt out. No. I know I'm hopeless.

No, look, that's it.

You don't have to be the best dancer.

You just have to make their eyes move just one inch. Come here.

What do you mean? Let me tell you something.

Show her. Okay.

Watch and learn.

You fucking sit there. Sit, ma. Come on.

You drain the clock and not the motherfucking cock, you know what I'm saying?

And you just go slow. Right there.

Slow. And you look at them.

Super slow. Uh-huh.

Slower. A little slower.

Slower. Sexier.

Yes. And look back at it.

Oh, yeah. They love that. The slower the better.

Like a motherfucking sloth.

That's $20 right there. Slow.

Remember, drain the clock, not the cock.

Drain the clock, not the cock. That's it.

Come on, now you look like you're taking a shit.

You can't deny she got it. We gonna make some money tonight.

Come on, let's go. Let's go.

I said: "Are we gonna make some fucking money tonight?"

Yeah!

Tracey, have you met Destiny?

No. Hey. You're from Queens, right?

Yeah, Kew Gardens.

Okay, I'm from Briarwood. Cool. Yeah.

Yeah.

And this is Star.

Hi.

And you've gotta meet Liz.

Liz. Liz!

She playin' a song for Jackie's new titties.

They're double-Ds! Jackie got new titties?

Yeah! New titties!

It's this new gummy-bear technology. Yes! Who did these?

Dr. Bobby. These are good.

Isn't he amazing?

Thank God for Dr. Bobby.

And this is Mercedes. This my baby.

Hi. Nice to meet you.

Hi. Nice to meet you. Destiny.

Tracey.

Your boyfriend's here.

What? Girl, again? And he's crying.

Crying?

Oh, fuck. Yeah, hon.

What? Girl, what's going on with Rodrigo?

Girl, I don't know. He's just been so jealous lately.

"Lately"? Yeah.

You can't let him drop you off. You know that.

I know. But, like, you know how it is.

At first, he liked this shit. Of course he did.

'Cause you wanna know why?

These motherfuckers think that it's so fun to date a stripper

'cause it's like, "We move, and we fuck. And we fuck the best. It's the shit."

And then, when they realize that we work six nights a week, last shit we wanna see is their damn dicks.

Okay!

I just wanna chill on my couch in some feetie pajamas with my nigga, ice cream, no makeup, and for damn sure not with these on.

Wait. I just make my boyfriend masturbate beside me.

What? Is that weird?

Shit. I haven't had sex in two years.

Oh, baby. Two years?

Well, I have a boyfriend.

Since when?

Since now.

He don't bother me. He don't get jealous.

The only time he complain is when I don't change the batteries, bitch.

Too bad he ain't got no money.

Well, bitch, I can't have everything, can I?

Hey, ladies, who wants cake?

Aww.

Ma, what are you doing to us?

You can't keep doing this to us.

It's a little motivation for my babies.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Trying to make some extra tips.

I wanna have a tiny, tiny little sliver. Teeny, teeny.

But only 'cause I know you made it with love.

Go crazy. Get a big piece.

Everybody have a piece of the fucking cake.

Let me get my Tupperware. I don't want that cake.

Eat it.

Hey. You an investor in this place?

No.

Then quit putting money back into it.

Let the guys get fucked up.

First get 'em a single, then a double, then a triple, then go back to a double, and then a single.

You want 'em drunk enough to get their credit card, but sober enough to sign the check.

Lenny, give us a beat.

You got it, gorgeous.

♪ I get money, money I got ♪

♪ I, I get it ♪

♪ I get money, money I got ♪

♪ Yeah ♪ ♪ Money I got, money I got ♪

♪ I run New York ♪

♪ I get money, money I got ♪

♪ I, I get it ♪ According to Ramona, there were three tiers of Wall Street guys.

The guys at the bottom, they don't do anything dirty to make money.

So, most of them don't have any.

But if they do, you can milk 'em for every penny.

♪ I, I get it ♪ You know, maybe they're in a loveless marriage.

Or maybe they're single and feeling dejected.

Either way, you can string 'em along without getting physical.

Chuck here pays for my apartment on the Upper East Side and I've never even sniffed his dick.

The guys in the middle, they'll get their hands a little dirty.

But they have their limits.

Don't tase me, bro.

They dabble in greed. But they never cross a certain line.

Or maybe they're not as good at it.

That's why they all share a two-bedroom in Cobble Hill.

But then there's the motherfuckers on top.

You're a dickwad, fucking pussy.

CEOs, CFOs, investment bankers, corporate raiders, hedge funders, ax murderers.

Found footage. You like it? Take a look.

Look familiar? Too close to home, mama?

Coming straight from the crime scene into the club.

But not through the front. Oh, no.

These guys, they don't wanna be written about on page six.

They come through the back.

They take the private elevator to the one room without cameras.

How you feeling today?

Oh. Feel a lot better now.

Make some money? Oh, yeah.

And they don't leave till they spend $10,000, $15,000 in one night.

They can be degrading, possessive, aggressive, violent.

And they never get in any trouble.

Because everyone's willing to cover their tracks.

'Cause deep down they all want what they got.

They all wanna be on top... where there are no consequences.

♪ I saw you ♪ You're just another deal to them. And that's all they are to you.

♪ In a mist of a dream ♪

♪ I wonder why, oh, why ♪ It's business.

And it's a more honest transaction than anything else they did that day.

♪ You were not there ♪

♪ You looked so good to me ♪

♪ This could happen to you ♪

♪ In a mist of a dream ♪ All you have to do is figure out who you're dealing with.

And then play them at their level.

I'm gonna do that.

Let me help you.

I got it.

Hold on. Wait. You gotta spread it out a little bit.

I did.

I gotta get a bigger boot.

Oh, my God. Wait.

'Kay, hold on. Wait, yeah, you got it.

I got it!

She wasn't in it to make friends.

Yay! It just happened.

This is fucking hot. It's perfect.

'Cause it's classy. And I just wanna... No. I love it. It's perfect.

But do you think it's too big?

Are you kidding me? A bag can never be too big.

Come on, let's ring you up.

What are you looking at? Ring it up.

Thank you.

There you go, baby.

Okay.

Ta-da! I'm designing my own swim-line.

You made these? Uh-huh.

I like to use a lot of mixed media.

So I, like, find leather pieces, and then I get little chains and make belts out of them.

And this right here, these are epaulets.

That's French for "little shoulders."

You know, a lot of people are afraid to wear denim in the ocean, but I swear that these get more comfortable when they're wet.

Specifically salt water.

Here. Try these on.

It's gonna take some time for me to save up the money for my label, but I do have a client who's a graphic designer, and he mocked-up this logo for me.

"Swimona."

It's catchy, right?

Did you go to school for this?

Yep. Thirteen credits away from graduating.

Oh, my God. Those look amazing on you.

Yeah. So hot.

Bear Cub, is that you?

Mom?

Oh, yes.

Hi, my gorgeous girl.

Hi. How's my little genius?

How's that big, beautiful brain of yours?

Juliet, this is Mommy's friend, Dorothy. Say hi.

Hi.

Oh, yeah. She's always so shy... Hi.

Unless it's a cute boy.

I'll take it from here, Manuela.

Ay, gracias, señora.

Goodbye, Juju. Te quiero mucho.

What do you want for dinner, baby?

I don't wanna be dependent on anybody.

Like, ever.

You know?

I just wanna be able to take care of my grandma for the rest of her life.

Maybe go shopping every once in a while.

Yeah. That's how I feel.

I just want my daughter to be able to do whatever she wants, you know?

Go to whatever school she wants, or not.

If that's what she wants.

I swear, I'd do anything for this kid.

Motherhood is a mental illness.

Well, that would explain my mother.

Hmm.

Is that how you would describe her?

My mother?

I mean Ramona.

How much of this is going into the article?

Oh, I... It's just, I really hope it's not some story about all strippers being thieves or whatever.

Not at all. 'Cause they're not.

And it's things like this that add to a stigma, and I don't wanna perpetuate anything.

Of course. You gotta understand.

I was making an honest living then.

Everything was good.

Everybody was happy. Everybody was making money.

Beautiful couch. I know.

That's your window. I got my own place in the city.

That's your floor. Your living room. That's your floor.

Yes. And, of course... my vagina.

I helped my grandma get out of debt.

And Ramona inspired me to go back to school.

Wow!

I'm sorry. It's just your penmanship is really remarkable.

I'm Stephen.

You know, I just got a vest just like that.

Do you? Yeah. I think it's really chic.

I'm really blown away by your penmanship.

Seriously. You could be a font.

Thanks.

Did you know that they do that?

No. They do.

They take your handwriting and they make it into a font.

And then put it into your computer so you can type with your own handwriting.

But I don't have a computer.

Oh! Right. I know.

I mean, I guess that's why my handwriting's so good, right?

Right. Right. Yes.

2007 was the fucking best.

Sup, bro? You good?

Yo. Come here.

Hey.

What's going on? What's your name?

I'm Destiny.

Destiny, I'm Johnny. Sup? Nice to meet you.

It's nice to meet you.

Fucking unbelievable.

Where'd that necklace come from? Do you fucking hear yourself?

Hey! Come here.

Welcome to my family.

I'm Kim Kardashian.

The princess is in the building!

I made more money that year than a goddamn brain surgeon.

And, sure, some days sucked. Like any other job.

But other days...

What do you think?

If I could fuck a car...

I'd fuck this car. This is fucking it.

This is fucking it.

Stick with me, baby. Yeah, let's do it.

What? Yes!

Oh, shit.

That's my motherfucking song right there.

Girl.

Get your singles ready.

And for one last moment... everything was so glamorous and cool.

We begin our coverage tonight of what's been called

"the worst financial crisis in modern times."

Certainly, the largest financial disaster in decades in this country, and, perhaps, the end of an era in American business.

Some of the biggest names in American business are, tonight, gone, along with a lot of money and a lot of jobs.

The crash put everybody out of business.

But I had other things on my mind.

How am I gonna make money?

...lost 504 points on the day's trading.

I'll take care of you.

Des, look at me. Look at me.

I promise.

I'll take care of you.

If he's a boy, we'll name him Johnny.

I hope it's a boy.

After I stopped working, I lost touch with Ramona.

That's just what happens when you have a kid.

Get out! Stick to it this time then.

Stick to it this time. I will! Get the fuck away from me.

Go. Leave. We don't need you.

Remember you said this. Get the fuck out.

It's what you wanted. This is what you wanted.

I don't give a shit!

This is the last fucking time I'm doing this.

Hi, baby. It's okay. Shh.

Shh.

Hello?

Hey, Stephen. It's Destiny.

D... Destiny. Wh... Uh...

Wow. Yeah.

Time flies, right?

Uh... Where are you?

Well, you know, I just got back to the city.

Um, I moved to Arizona a few years ago.

But I've missed the seasons. I'm just gonna take this downstairs.

And I really missed you.

Are you still there?

Yes, uh, I'm still here.

Um, I'm ju...

Do you, uh...

Do you need to get that?

What?

Do you need to help the baby?

No, that's my friend's baby. I'm just watching it.

Listen, I really didn't mean to bother you.

I mean, if you're not happy to hear from me, I can call somebody else. No, no. I'm happy.

I just wish that you had called sooner.

Fatima came back.

Who?

My fiancée.

I mean... my wife.

My fiancée became my wife.

Right. Yeah. I know, that's how it happens.

Okay. Bye, Stephen. If you...

So, your last job was in 2008?

Yes. But it's not like I was...

I mean, I had a baby.

So, I was busy doing that.

A year of waitressing.

Did you graduate high school?

Oh, I see here you got your GED.

Five years at Sin City Cabaret.

What did you do there, exactly? Bartending, mostly.

And what about at Moves?

Bartending, mostly.

So you really don't have any retail experience.

No, not yet.

But that's why I'd really like to get retail experience because then I would have it.

We're really looking for someone with retail experience.

Well, how am I supposed to get retail experience without retail experience?

I mean, I sold beer. What's the difference?

Baby, come here.

Did Nana fall asleep?

There we go.

Are you okay?


You're in my seat.

I'm so sorry.

You're so pretty.

Another Red Bull?

Mom!

Hey! Welcome back, sweetie.

They have you up front now? Yup.

What the hell happened to this place?

2008 happened.

The guys don't wanna spend money.

The girls don't wanna share tips.

Management has taken the cameras out of the Champagne Room.

And I'm up front in customer service.

Yes, I see you. Hello.

Another Red Bull?

Who are these girls?

Russians, mostly.

They look like models.

They're giving blow jobs for $300 a pop.


Yeah? What else you got?

Come on. Don't be a tease. Are you a tease?

Feel how hard you make me.

We're not supposed to do that.

Oh, come on. Just stroke it.

I'll give you $100.

A hundred. One hundred.

Please.

Here.

Three hundred.

Pretty please.

Just for a minute. Come on.

Hey. We'll make each other feel good.

All right.

When I got off the floor, I saw that he gave me three 20s.

You don't have to believe me.

I'm used to people not believing me.

I just wanted to tell you so that you know where my head was at when I saw her.


Whoa.

Oh, my God. There's no way.

Oh, my God, she's fucking gorgeous.

Of course.

How old is she now?

Two and a half.

There's nothing like it, is there?

Juliet still lets me sleep in her bed.

But I just know she's gonna throw me out any day now.

I missed you, you know that?

I missed you, too.

Where'd you go, baby?

What happened with Johnny?

Why didn't you call me?

You know that you and Lily can always stay with me and Juju.

You know that. No, don't do that. Come on.

No. Don't do that thing.

Don't do that.

It's me.

Hey.

You remember what we were like back then?

Remember?

We were like fucking hurricanes.

Weren't we?

I just need to make money right now, though, you know?

I just wanna, like, be independent. Not need anybody.

Just me and Lily. That's it.

She told me what happened after the crash.

With half of Wall Street unemployed, the club wasn't far behind.

Mercedes got Ramona a job in fashion.

I can't believe he got arrested.

What am I supposed to do now? I can't afford no lawyer.

I can barely afford his half of the rent.

It's almost enough to make me just call off the wedding.

Well?

I mean, come on, Sadie. And you know I love Dragon.

But do you really wanna marry someone who's probably going to prison?

I don't know.

Three to five is a big commitment.

Hey, Mark. Hey, what's up?

I was hoping you wouldn't mind if I ducked out early on Fridays to pick up my kid from school.

She has half days for the rest of the year.

Rest of the year? No.

No, no. No, the rest of the school year.

No.

Well, what if I got somebody to cover my shift?

Mercedes said that she could probably... Oh, my God. Come on.

Took me forever to figure out everyone's stupid schedules.

I know, Mark. But... I mean, really?

Please. I wouldn't ask if it wasn't for my kid. Okay?

She's going through this difficult time at school.

She's at that difficult age.

Am I the father?

What? Am I the father?

No.

'Kay. Then why should I give a shit? Right?

Don't she got a babysitter or a nanny or something?

I can't afford that.

Well, you know, if you were putting in more hours instead of racing outta here all the time...

Right? More hours, more money.

More money, a babysitter. Problem solved.

Craig's got two kids.

You don't see him rushing home every time someone's got a nosebleed.

He's here, he's doing his shifts. I can't do it.

Where'd you learn that?

Just some old...

What? Don't you have sisters?

No, my brothers don't talk to me anymore.

I told my mom and dad that I worked here, and they kicked me out of the house.

Wanna go fishing?

What's fishing?

Since the crash, the club needs customers.

All we gotta do is reel 'em in.

Look, anyone can own one nice suit.

You wanna look at their shoes, their watches, briefcases... their wedding rings.

Always look for a wedding ring.

Jimmy, another Glenmorangie.

Once you got 'em on the hook, that's when we get the net.

Bring out the flavor.

Spencer, these are my co-workers.

What are we cheersing today?

To life. Cheers. Whoo!

Cheers. Cheers.

Ho-ho. What do we got there? You want some of that?

A little Colombian marching powder?

Let me show you how it's done.

There you go.

You know what we should do? We should go to a club.

We should go to the strip club.

I don't know. I don't know.

Come on. It's naughty.

Tomorrow we'll be at our desks at 9 a.m., regretting the moment that we could've gone to a strip club together.

Let's do it. Let's do it.

I'm in.

Then we steer him to the club...

Need a ride, baby? Oh, yes, I do.

Get in.

...where we've negotiated ourselves a percentage of his spending.

And then we run up his credit card as far as we can push it.

Easy breezy.

Another round.

Yaas. Yaas. Yeah!

No problem.

There we go.

No problem. No problem.

Okay, you got this.

Hey! Yeah, Spencer.

Tell the nice man where you live.

New York!

Little more specific, baby.

Fifth Avenue.

Close enough.

Hey.

Bye, Spencer! Goodbye!

Bye! Bye!

But like Ramona said, "Going fishing doesn't mean you catch a marlin."

And some of the guys didn't want to party.

Oh, no. No, thank you.

Come on. You don't...

Are you sure? Come on. I'm very sure. Thank you.

You don't wanna see me after a couple of those.

Oh, boy.

And some of them caught on.

I can't, but this was fun. What? Wait.

Fuck.

What do we do now?

I'm supposed to get Dragon a new lawyer.

But I can't fucking afford it now.

I can't move back home.

I guess it's back to the pole.

Sorry, Annabelle. We'll get through it.

That's when Ramona came up with her special recipe.

Are you serious?

It's barely any different than what we're doing now.

It's just a shortcut.

A sure thing.

What if someone gets hurt? Nobody's gonna get hurt.

The worst is they'll have a bad hangover.

What if somebody calls the cops? And says what?

"I spent $5,000 at a strip club. Send help"?

No. They won't even know what happened until they check their bank account.

I think I'm gonna throw up.

Look, we're not the only ones doing this.

How do you think the club stayed in business post-2008?

It's a side hustle.

Everybody's had to get creative, baby.

I know a girl in Queens who did it.

Did she get caught?

No.

She sent her two kids to college.

And now she lives in Miami. Opened up a nail salon.

Exactly.

What do you think?

What is it?

It's ketamine and MDMA.

The ketamine wipes their memory, the MDMA makes 'em happy.

How many times have you done it?

Three times. Including tonight.

Works every time.

We made five grand tonight, split three ways.

Could make it four.

Be like old times.

Look, baby, we gotta start thinking like these Wall Street guys.

You see what they did to this country?

They stole from everybody.

Hardworking people lost everything.

And not one of these douchebags went to jail.

Not one.

Is that fair?

You ever think about when they come into the club?

That's stolen money.

That's what's paying for their blow jobs.

The fucking firefighters' retirement fund.

Fuck these guys.

Look, we can't dance forever.

What are you gonna do? Go back to minimum wage?

No, baby, this game is rigged.

And it does not reward people who play by the rules.

You either gotta stand in the corner or get in the ring.

I don't wanna hurt anybody.

Me either.

All right?

They would do this anyway.

We're just helping them do it.

Nobody gets hurt.

Nobody gets hurt.

So... are you in?

Well, it's getting late.

Oh, it is? What a shame.

So, you gotta get up early tomorrow, or...

Let's get another drink. Hmm?

Hey, these are my sisters.

Hi, sweetie! Hi!

Hi. Hi, baby.

Hi. Ramona.

I'm Gary. Gary, nice to meet you.

Nice to meet you. Annabelle.

Hi, Annabelle. Isn't he so cute?

Yes.

I'm Destiny. Hi, Destiny.

Can I have three shots?

You know who he looks like, don't you?

He looks like Tom Cruise. Right?

No, no. I'm thinking more smooth. Tom Cruise.

It's the hair. Tom Cruise? I don't know about that.

I know!

No. It's your smile.

It is.

It's really good. A mini Bob Saget.

Getting more Sonny. Yeah!

Sonny Bono?

He's got the twinkle in his eye.

I know! Here we go, guys.

This wine yours?

Yes, that's it. No, this is mine. Okay, cool.

All right, thanks. Shots, ladies?

Okay. Yes. Yes.

You guys are sisters?

Yeah. Same dad, different moms.

To sisters!

To sisters.

To sisters.

Just put him here right now.

He dead?

Oh, shit. We going to jail. Damn. -

Oh, my God. Help her.

Oh, my God. Does this always happen?

No.

Did we give him too much? I don't know.

Gary. Gary. Baby.

Gary, wake up. Wake up, Gary.

Gary. Oh, Gary.

Open your eyes. We love you, Gary.

Gary! Wake up, Gary. Fuck.

Open your eyes, baby.

Wake up, Gary! Wake up! Open your eyes.

There you go.

What was that, Gary?

Another round, Gary? What are we gonna do?

What do you want? Isn't this fun?

Uh. That's it, baby.

That's it, Gary.

Come on. Yeah, Gary.

That's it, baby. Get it.

There you go. Come on.

This one right here? There you go.

You can do it. Come on. Come on.

What do you want, baby?

Which one is it? That one?

You need help?

This one? That pretty gold one right here?

That's the one?

Wow. Oh, my...

To Gary!

Yes!

The worst are the guys who go to the bathroom and put on a condom, and then you know you got to grind it out.

So disgusting.

We don't have to go back. Do we?

Do we have to go back? No, baby. Your dancing days are over.

Yeah? You guys, I can pay off my grandma's house. Yeah!

I'm getting myself a new engagement ring. That's so sweet.

And Dragon's ass can stay in jail for a few more weeks.

Or a month. Or a year.

To Gary. To Gary!

To Gary. I love Gary.

God bless Gary. To Gary.

I love you, Gary! To Gary.

I love you, Gary. Mom?

Hi, baby.

Hi, what happened? Who woke you up?

Who was it? Some crazy lady woke you up?

What happened?

You guys are my real sisters.

I love you like you're my sisters. Yeah. Sisters.

I love you. I love you.

Love you.

You know I love you though. Yes.

We are a family now.

Yeah.

A family with money!

Yeah!

What are we gonna do? We're gonna go shopping tomorrow? Yes, we are!

Hit the Electric Slide.

Okay. I know it sounds bad to say that we were drugging people.

But you gotta understand, in our world, this was normal.

I mean, half these guys are mainlining coke on their way to work.

But we still wanted to make it as safe as possible.

So, I suggested that we tweak the recipe.

So, what do you think? Sixty MDMA, forty ketamine?

That sounds good.

Do we turn the liquid into a powder? Or do we turn the powder into a liquid?

It's hot.

Eh, eh, eh.


Let's try it in the oven.

Mm-hmm.

Yes.

How much?

Just a sprinkle.

You know, I'm still not sure about strangers.

Well, that's the beauty of it, baby, they're strangers.

Yeah, but I don't wanna slip it to anybody who's not already on something.

We gotta know that these guys like to party.

And that they've got money.

Enough not to care if some of it's missing.

With strangers, it's unpredictable.

No guarantees.

So, we called up some old friends.

Okay.

David, is that you?

It's Ramona.

Get some.

Well, I can send you a picture to jog your memory.

Okay, I'll send it right now.

Come on. Come on, give it to me.

No. Turn around. You know what they want.

You're into that good time. It's a sure thing.

That's good. That's a good angle.

My baby. Now we wait.

You killed it.

Uh...

This was too fucking easy.

Hi, David.

Yeah, I can bring some of my friends.

David, these are my sisters.

Hi.

Annabelle.

David. Nice to meet you. Nice to meet you.

David. David. Nice to meet you.

Mercedes. Like the car.

Mercedes, how are you?

We should get some drinks. Ooh, yes.

Shots, please.

Too much, bitch.

Let me see, let's do number four.

It says, "The brain evaluates data collected from weather..."

Mercedes.

So good to see you.

Dragon's gonna be okay.

Maybe one of 'em would call and complain, but we could handle it.

What are you talking about? You had an amazing time.

You were so happy.

You kept tipping everybody, remember?

Ramona could always handle it.

What are you gonna do? Call the police?

You really gonna tell your wife and the police what you did?

You think that's worth whatever amount you're missing?

No, you went out. You had an epic night.

It costs money.

Why should it cost you any more than that?

Too cute.

We treated it like a business.

So, we'll have Annabelle meet J.P. Morgan and Mercedes meet Wells Fargo.

Mercedes met Wells Fargo last time.

How much did we charge last time?

$5,000 on his American Express and $2,000 on his corporate card.

Does he have any airline miles?

Let's check. Worth a look.

We invested in ourselves.

Yes. Ooh.

The dolls are here!

Do I look expensive?

You look very expensive. And baby got back.

That dress is hugging you in all the right places.

We expanded our clientele.

What did you say that you did again?

I am an architect.

Oh.

No wonder your hands are so... nice. Strong hands.

But the bigger the bank account, the greater the expectations.

Let's go fuck in the bathroom.

Uh, my sisters are gonna be here in a couple minutes.

Let's just wait for them, okay?

All right. Tick tock.

The guys were getting more and more aggressive, and the four of us could only take on so much.

So, that's when I said...

We need to be outsourcing.

Let's put an ad in Craigslist.

So, we put an ad in Craigslist.

Does anybody have any allergies?

And by this, I mean really serious allergies.

Like, life-threatening allergies. Yeah?

I have asthma.

All right. I don't like feet.

You have a foot allergy?

No. I'm just saying if a foot goes near my face, I'll shut down.

I don't mind feet. Okay.

Now, we're gonna work on our fake sniffing and our fake drinking.

Where were you? They had an Orange Julius.

All right. That's good. That's better with the nail.

What's Coco doing here?

We said no junkies and no criminals.

So?

So, she's a junkie and a criminal.

People change. I'm not entirely convinced.

Hon, you're not...

Fine. But I promised I'd buy her lunch.

Oh!

Who is this? What are you doing at the mall?

This is Mr. Bruce.

Mr. Brucey!

I take him everywhere with me. I hope that's not a problem.

Not at all. Not at all.


Oh, my God! Hi!

Look at these fucking bags, bitch. Let me see!

Six-six-one-zero. And what's my balance?

Welcome to my apartment.

My God! The penthouse, bitch.

How crazy is this?

Oh, my God.

Oh, my God.

I'll teach you how to use it.

Dorothy, what have you done?

Well, you always said you wanted real pearls.

Did you go to the bottom of the ocean for this?

Yeah. Something like that.

What is it?

Oh, my goodness.

Mommy, it's the one I wanted.

Thank you to your Aunt Ramona.

Thank you, Aunt Ramona.

You're welcome, my little baby girl!

Thank you. Of course.

I got the red-bottoms. I got the red-bottoms. Yes, girl!

Ooh. These are nice.

Thank you.

You're welcome, my love.

Okay, okay. Right here.

This one's for you.

For me?

Oh, yes. Here we go.

Uh-huh.

What do we got?

Oh, my God. It's gorgeous.

So classy. You like it?

No.

I love it! I love it.

I'm gonna carry all my other bags in it. It's so amazing.

Oh, my God. Thank you, baby.

Okay. I have something for you.

Do I get the big one? Yes, I chose this just for you.

Okay.

Wow, it's heavy. Yeah.

Okay. What do we got?

Open it up. It's a big one.

Oh, my Lord.

What was it?

Chinchilla. Oh, my God.

Oh, my God!

Yes.

You're the best.

I'm so proud of you.

We don't need anybody else, do we? Mm-mm.

Nobody. No.

We're the untouchables.

Like Kobe and Shaq.

Who gets to be Kobe?

I'm Kobe. You're Shaq. I'm the Kobe.

No. I don't wanna be Shaq. No.

How are you Kobe when there can only be one Kobe? And I'm the Kobe!

Double Kobe! I'm the Kobe!

Okay, everybody.

Come on. Get on top of each other. Get together.

Come on.

Get close. Get cozy.

I wanna get in the middle. In, in.

Now say money!

Money!

And, God, thank you for everything that you've given us.

This delicious food.

My new Louboutins.

And... for this family.

My sisters.

We are so blessed.

Amen.

Amen. Amen.

Try some of this pork, baby.

I don't usually get nervous around these types.

No, you're good.

No, they come into the club all the time.

But I had a crush on this guy since I was 15.

So, I was like, "Oh, my God." And suddenly, he's there.

Nan, do you know who he is?

You know. You must've seen him in Us Weekly.

She knows who he is. Nan, you know who he is.

The guy from the movies.

I've seen him.

He's very good-looking.

Yeah!

Well, let me tell you something: he's even more good-looking in person.

I am telling you.

Anyway, so he picks me up in this white Porsche.

No way. Yeah.

And all he tells me is to wear a hat.

Fucking Kentucky Derby. Yes! That's what I thought!

That's what it was, right? That's what I thought.

That's what I thought.

But then, all of a sudden, we're at the airport.

We're boarding this private jet to Monaco. Oh, my God.

There was champagne, lobster, a butler.

And I just didn't have the heart to tell him, like, I hate flying.

So, there I am in this gorgeous marble bathroom, 10,000 feet in the air, vomiting lobster and champagne.

Sit here, baby. You know, Annabelle can vomit on cue.

It's one of her many gifts. It's not intentional.

- You're so good though, baby.

So, thank God, finally, this plane lands.

And we proceed to have three of the most amazing hours I have ever had in my life.

Until the paparazzi shows up, ruins everything.

And I have to say:

That's the end of the PG-13 version of this story.

Ooh! Oh, no. You gotta give us more. Come on.

Details, please. Tease, baby.

I once danced with Frankie Valli.

What? Nana.

Did... Did you know this? No. What?

It was before he got married.

The second time.

I don't know, Nan.

I don't know about that. Are you sure?

Pretty sure.

You're not really sure.

My God, this woman is my spirit animal!

♪ Rag doll, ooh ♪

Okay, Nan.

All right. Tell the truth.

Frankie Valli shows up on your doorstep on your wedding day.

And he says, "Me or your husband."

What do you say?

"Which car do you drive?"

How have we not met sooner?

How have we not met sooner?

How have we not met sooner?

Oh, my God.

So, getting back to the drugging.

Is that what you're hung up on?

It's hard not to be.

What'd you say your name was again?

Elizabeth.

And did you grow up with money, Elizabeth?

We were... comfortable.

So, what did your parents do?

My dad was a journalist.

My mom's a psychiatrist.

And where'd you go to school?

Brown. For undergrad.

What would you do for $1,000?

Of course, the answer is gonna depend on what you already have and what you need.

So, the... Yeah, I'm sorry.

I don't think I should even talk to you anymore.

It's just, I don't know you.

And I'm sorry, these girls are just like my sisters, so...

That's okay. I understand.

Ramona said the same thing.

You talked to Ramona?

Yeah.

When?

Yesterday.

Where?

I went to her work.

What?

Oh, nothing. It's just... the idea of Ramona Vega trying to go straight.

That's like...

Well, I mean, if you talked to her, what do you need to talk to me for?

I was just hoping that you could fill in some of the blanks.

"Blanks"?

Okay.

Where was I?

Fucking copycats.

Look, I don't think we need 'em anymore.

Need who?

The club.

Why should we split anything when we can have it all?

After she cut out the club, we had to meet our clients in hotel rooms.

Or in their homes upstate. Where the fuck are they?

Annabelle's feeling grossed-out lately.

A lot of the girls stopped showing up.

And what about Mercedes? Is she feeling "grossed-out"?

We can't keep giving them their cut if they're not showing up for weeks on end.

We need a bigger crew. I'm gonna call Coco.

No! She's a junkie.

Fine. What about Georgia?

She just got out of jail.

Trixie?

She's still in jail.

Ramona, quit bringing home strays.

We're breaking the law here. We don't wanna work with criminals.

I didn't know how much I love red hair until I saw you standing there.

Oh, my God. Thank you. So amazing.

I wish it was natural. I might dye my hair.

Hey, Dorothy. This is Dawn.

Hi.

♪ Pretty as A midsummer's morn ♪

♪ They call her Dawn ♪ As soon as I saw her, I said, "Oh, my God. You're gorgeous. You have to join us."

And she said... Tell 'em what you said.

I said, "What is it? Like, a cult?"

It kinda is a cult. A little bit.

It's like, if we're a team, and we're making money, and we're winning games, do you suddenly start trading players and bringing in new people?

No, right?

Think I'm gonna buy these.

Where the fuck is she?

Relax. She's a pro.

Two-four-three-seven.

Two-four-three-seven.

Two-four-three-seven.

Two-four-three-seven.

Three-seven.

Yeah. We can meet at five or six.

No, six is good. Six is good.

You want five?

Make a decision. Two-four...

You've got three seconds. One, two...

Yeah, I'm gonna fucking get these!

Size 8, please, ho.

Two-four-three-seven. Six o' clock or seven?

Two-four-three-seven.

Two-four-three-seven. Hurry the fuck up.

Two-four-three-seven. Jesus fucking Christ. Come on!

Um, two-four-three-seven.

Good girl.

I got you.

Told you she was a pro.

Dawn was no pro.

She was a cokehead. A felon.

She was reckless and sloppy. And stupid. With the blue tie?

She was out of control. I don't know. I've never seen him.

Ramona didn't care, as long as she was making money.

What's my credit limit, again?

$50,000?

Let's do it for the full 50.

We're never gonna see him again.

Who cares?

Yes. Thank you.

It wasn't long before she burned through our regulars, which left us with unpredictable strangers.

Where is he? Out back.

What the fuck happened?

He said he could dive off the roof.

And I said he couldn't.

Well, you were right. Where's Georgia?

She took off.

Where the fuck is Ramona? This is her client!

I couldn't get in contact with her.

My God.

All right. Come on. Help me get his legs.

I... Is he dead?

Not yet.

We're not gonna kill him, are we?

No, we're gonna take him to the hospital. Come on. Help me.

Okay. Help me get him. Lift.

What the fuck?

You can do it. Come on. No, no, no.

Get the door!

I got him. I got him.

Okay. You gotta help me with his torso. Come on. Careful. Careful.

Ready? - Don't scratch his booty.

Watch his head. Watch his head.

Fuck!

God, I'm sorry.

Okay. Call Ramona and don't stop calling till you get her.

Okay. I'm gonna fucking kill her.

Has she texted back yet?

No.

Can't believe her.

Hey, slow down. Five-O.

Oh, shit!

Guys. You guys!

I'm sorry. Just chill.

Stay cool. I am.

Oh, my God.

Fuck. I'm sorry. No, that's fine.

I don't know why that happens.

Mercedes, come on. Help me.

I'm coming. I'm coming.

Jesus Christ.

Help me get him out. Where are you taking him?

We're gonna take him inside.

I thought we was just gonna leave him here.

We can't just leave him.

I'm not going inside.

Mercedes, this is a business.

No!

Mercedes!

Oh, fuck!

Help, please!

Help! Help!

Help! Here they are.

Please, help my husband.

Help my husband!

All right... I'm gonna flip on three.

Please hurry!

I'll be right back. Come on.

Lily!

Lily!

Monica! Are you still here?

Lily!

Fuck.


Come on.

Oh, my God.

There's Mommy. I'm so sorry.

Hi, baby. Hi! you were stealing money.

That's funny.

Hey. The babysitter had to go home. Funny.

But we had ourselves a fun sleepover, didn't we?

Oh, yeah? I'm so sorry. Yeah.

Come on, Lily. Here we go.

Do you want me to take her? No, I got her, Amy. Thanks.

Sweetie, we're almost there.


Why are we walking so fast, Mommy?

Bye, Mommy. Bye. Be good.

So where was Ramona when I needed her?

Bailing out Dawn again.

Are you kidding me? Let me buy you lunch, baby.

Yeah? You're so good to me. Yes, of course.

Don't ever fucking call me again. Baby.

Come Friday, we're looking at sunny skies with a high of 78 degrees.

On the weekend, we got scattered showers...

I'm sorry I wasn't there, baby.

I know.

I don't wanna go home.

Do you and Lily wanna stay with us?

Yeah.

Okay.

You know, I'm supposed to meet someone tonight if you wanna join me.

I mean, take your mind off things.

Ain't no pressure, just, you know...

If you need the money.

Could be a big one.

I knew it had to stop.

I kept thinking that there was, like, this magic number.

You know, if I could save enough money, I could start clean.

Just me and Lily.

Maybe a score so big that we would never need anybody.

Is that what happened with Doug ♪♪♪♪?

Uh...

I don't really remember a Doug ♪♪♪♪.

Ramona said... Well, Ramona's a liar.

She'll say anything to make herself look better.

I mean, what did she say about me?

I'm sure she had a lot to say.

What'd she say?

She said you had a tough time growing up and that you spent a lot of time alone.

You got into fights and... had some bad boyfriends.

Okay. What else?

That your parents were immigrants, and that when your father left, your mother dropped you off at your grandparents' house.

And never came back.

Is that true?

I mean, I thought that she was just taking a break, you know?

I thought that, you know, sometimes moms need a break.

Why would she tell you all that?

I think she just wanted me to understand that, for you, this wasn't about revenge.

You were just trying to make friends.

Destiny.

I know I'm supposed to think that what you did was terrible and that these guys didn't deserve it.

But to tell you the truth, I don't feel sorry for them.

Well, I feel sorry for them.

You know, I keep having this nightmare.

Right? Where, like, I'm in the back seat of this car.

This moving car.

And I realize that nobody is driving the car.

And I have to get to the front seat to try to stop it, and I go there, and no matter what I do, I can't get a grip on it.

And I can't, like, stop it.

And then I wake up.

What happened between you and Ramona?

Why aren't you talking anymore?


Hello?

So Ramona met Doug years ago.

Doug's friend took him to the club to blow off some steam after a few devastating events.

I don't know that it is gonna be okay.

How could it get worse?

Which included his house being destroyed by a fire.

And separating from the mother of his young son.

She never really wanted to have kids, you know?

So, I think when we found out he was autistic, I think she just couldn't handle it, you know?

He was nice.

We talked about our kids. We talked about our exes.

We had a heart-to-heart. Drinks!

Here we go. That one's for you.

Thank you. You're welcome.

So, what happened to Doug?

So, what I miss? What are we doing tonight?

Um...

Uh...

The room was round.

There was a table.

They maxed out my corporate card... so my company launched an internal investigation, and I was fired.

Can you please just credit back my debit card?

My mortgage payment's on there.

What are you talking about? You were having a great time.

Why are you doing this to me?

Please, I have nothing. I can't...

I can't afford to not pay my mortgage.

My s...

My son...

I'm really sorry.

Put the phone down, Destiny.

Put it away. Just give me a second.

Don't. What the...

Gimme the phone. Get off of me!

Hey! Stop!

If we don't do it, someone else will. Get off of me.

Gimme that fucking phone.

Ungrateful little bitch.


Precinct.

Yes, hello. I...

I went to a strip club and I was drugged.

Precinct.

I was drugged, and I have proof.

It was weird.

It was real weird.

If it hadn't been for the tape, I would've been like, "Dude, you're fucking full of shit."

Please. I just wanna know what happened to me.

Um...

You were fleeced, that's all.

By who?

Um... Well, we're, like, a little gang.

You were just a target.

We just gave you a little sprinkle.

I'll tell you everything.

I'll tell you everything I know, I promise.

I know a lot. I really...

I'll tell you everything. I just don't wanna go back.

So, was there a sting?

One, two. One, two.

Hello, police. Can you hear me?

I'm about to open the door.

Hey, did you bring the drugs? Shh.

Where is he? He's in the bathroom.

Look, like, I don't think that he likes me.

So, I don't know, I think one of you is gonna have to do it.

Are you high?

What? Give her a break.

No. Me?

No, no. No. No. I don't do that kind of stuff anymore.

That's just... it's not me.

Hey, hey, ladies. Hey.

Christmas come early.

Hey, these are my friends that I told you about.

Hi, friends. This is Ramona.

Ramona. Hi. Ramona. Hi.

This is... And I'm Rhonda.

Rhonda. You are both very attractive. Rhonda. Yeah.

Thank you.

Okay. Why don't you take a seat right here.

We're gonna fix you a drink.

So, you stay there, okay? You get one too. Shots? I don't know.

We'll see about that.

Just a second. Hmm.

Hope you're thirsty.

Do it. No, just go ahead.

Go on.

You found him. Go ahead.

Hi.

Here you go.

Yum, yum, yummers. Slàinte.

So, who's excited?

I'm telling you, it's the same fucking car.

You're being paranoid.

No, I saw the same fucking Buick parked outside the Gansevoort.

It's not a Buick.

Well, whatever the fuck it is, it's been following us for 20 minutes.

Dawn was setting us up back there. Dawn?

Now I know you're paranoid.

You really think that she wouldn't sell you out to save herself?

So, there was a sting?

We cannot comment on that at this time.

But what we can tell you is the amount of people that were willing to talk to us was so small it was absurd.

Why?

I guess men don't wanna admit what happened to them, you know?

Being victimized by a woman.

So, we did some investigating, and we found the Connecticut architect who Moves said failed to pay a $135,000 bill he racked up during four visits to the club.

"For a night of pleasure he can't even remember."

What a boob.

"And went back three more times"?

I guess he must've liked it.

You know, when you look at it out of context, it seems like he's making it up.

You're a family girl?

You look like my brother.

Yeah? Yeah.

You like that? No.

Why I'm here. I mean, it's not about the money.

It's about the next guy this happens to, and, like, I gotta do something to stop that.

But when you put it together with Doug, it all added up.

Peter. Peter, these are my sisters.

Oh, yes!

Scary, isn't it?

I mean, we got so spooked, none of us went back to the club anymore.

Hey.

Hey, girl. Hey.

Which one of you is the ringleader?

This is unbelievable.

You guys are really something, you know that?

Does Tony know about this?

Take a seat, Miss Vega.

This is crazy.

We didn't do anything wrong.

You know, Tony wouldn't let this happen. I'm gonna text him.

Who gave her her phone back?

Think about your daughter.

You're facing felony charges here.

You really wanna go down for someone else?

Come on. You want Lily to grow up without her mother?

You think these girls are your friends?

You don't think they're gonna rat you out?

Think about your daughter.

Mercedes is probably gonna use Dragon's lawyer.

So, you, me and Annabelle should probably lawyer up.

Do we know any lawyers from the club? That guy, Jeremy? Or maybe Anton?

I took the deal.

You did?

Have I taught you fucking nothing?

You fucking idiot! What the fuck is wrong with you?

Why would you do that?

For Lily.

Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.

Motherhood is a mental illness.

I'm sorry.

We were fucking hurricanes, weren't we?

Yeah.

Hello? Hi. Um...

Hi, Elizabeth. It's Destiny.

Hey, Destiny. How are you?

I'm good. I'm really good.

Lily's great. Um...

Oh, I put the house up for sale. We're moving back to Queens.

You know, I've been making a ton of new friends.

And, oh, I met this guy who...

He's gonna help me get a job in pharmaceuticals.

So I'm really excited about that.

Are you still there? I'm here.

So, I was just reading the article again, and maybe the reason why we did what we did is because hurt people hurt people, you know?

Yeah. No, I understand.

So, have you talked to Ramona lately?

No, just that one time.

Have you? No.

Um...

Can I just ask you...

Like, what else did she say about me?

So, I used to live in the Bronx back then.

But I was seeing this guy who had a walk-up right next to where I stripped.

So, I was staying at his place, like, every night.

But one morning, I go back to my place, and the door's wide open.

And I was freaked out, you know? I was like, "Oh, my God. All my stuff."

All my valuable stuff is in this place that I'm not even sleeping in."

So, now I just carry everything with me everywhere I go.

Let me show you.

Let's see.

This.

This is a patch from my grandpa's uniform. He was in the navy.

Oh!

This is my... my grandma's wedding ring.

Isn't that pretty? And this one was my mother's.

It's the three birthstones of me and my sisters.

The ruby's me. I was a July baby.

I have two sisters. One lives in Arizona, the other one lives in Texas.

We try to get together once a year, but with the kids, it's impossible.

Do you have kids?

Not yet.

Well, don't worry. You're young.

And you have amazing skin.

Is that you?

That's me. I was 15.

A senior had asked me to the prom.

I look terrified.

I like the dress, though.

And this here, this is Dorothy.

Wasn't she the cutest?

Who could leave that baby?

You know, we used to say, "If only we had known each other back then."

You know?

Maybe we could've... looked out for one another.

Maybe our lives would've been different.

You know?

Or maybe it would've just been the same.

Who knows?

But I like to keep her with me.

What else you wanna know?


You should give her a call, Destiny.

Yeah.


Look, there's nothing I can really say to make sense of what went down.

But everybody's hustling.

This city...

Fuck, this whole country is a strip club.

You got people tossing the money... and people doing the dance.

One last time, everybody, let's hear it for our girls!

Hit it! Okay?

Whoo!

Oh!

Whoo!

One, two, three, four! Go. Go. Go.

That's it, folks.

It was fun while it lasted.

See me on your way out, I'll be selling excuses for why there's glitter on your pants.

We got a lot of ladies in the house tonight.

Must be a bachelorette party going on.

There is no flash photography here at Moves.

In fact no flashing of any kind.

It's time to go home gentleman.

The girls are not coming back out.

On behalf of Moves, make sure you tip your waitresses, and get home safe.

Good night everybody.

I'm sure I will see you again.

Real soon.
