Did you know that, in California, women just walk down the street in bikinis at all times? And play volleyball? Ava, Susannah, Johnny, and Aussie Guy sit on the beach, drinking beers. Johnny makes some comment about money, and Ava says that it's about that, and workspace, and credibility and owning their own ideas. Susannah comments that she could go to Beverly Hills and get their start-up money from her parents, but that she'd rather feed her feet to a wood chipper. So Susannah's backstory is that she's rich and she hates her parents. Got it. Aussie Guy spouts some philosophy about how having nothing is true freedom, and somehow, no one punches him in the face. Susannah points out that they still have to pay the bills. Johnny and Aussie Guy spot some hot chicks playing Frisbee, and Ava gives them permission to go talk to them. Weird. Why do they need her permission? Johnny stops and tells Ava that he doesn't want to hear that she needed help, including money, and didn't ask him for it. Ava waves him off, and then watches him talking to the ladies. Susannah says that Ava only needs to hold out her hand. Ava says she couldn't do it to Johnny again. Susannah says that he might make Ava happy. So Ava and Johnny were involved, and Ava broke his heart. Got it. Ava says that Aussie Guy (Jay) is right. Ava decides that they need to go to Paris. That night. Because those tickets would be cheap, and that's a great decision for two unemployed people to make impulsively. Susannah is totally behind the idea of being struggling artists in France. Aren't they a little old for this? It just seems like once you hit thirty or so, there's no more struggling artist in you. Maybe I'm just a fuddy-duddy, but I still think this would have worked better with younger leads. Susannah concludes that it will be just like Marrakech, and Ava adds, "Only without the arms dealer!" They dissolve in giggles, because terrorists are hilarious! Ava picks up her phone and calls a travel agent. She gets another call, and takes it. It's Bradin, sobbing so hard that he can't talk. He manages to tell Ava that the river broke through, and that his parents are dead. Bradin kind of looks like he's taking a poop instead of crying. A painful poop, perhaps, but a poop nonetheless. Ava drops the phone and tells her roommates that her sister and brother-in-law are dead. DEAD! She should have looked up at the sky and screamed, "Kaaaaaaareeeeeeeennn!" while shaking her fist in the air. That would have been awesome.
