Jimmy Collins : You guys didn't come out all the way to Greenpoint just to tell us that, did you?
Karen Cartwright : No, I also thought maybe we should have a reading today.
Kyle Bishop : A reading today?
Karen Cartwright : Derek said it's the best way to hear what you have. I sent out some e-mails to see if anyone was free. A bunch of people responded, and if you're interested...
Kyle Bishop : Your friends would really come here...?
Ana Vargas : People like to be a part of a new work. Plus, they've heard your music.
Jimmy Collins : Yeah, now they can hear your words to go along with them. Thanks a lot, Karen, you're really looking out for us. It means a lot.
Karen Cartwright : [as they walk along] Oh, I guess now I know why he didn't call. But why did he kiss me?
Ana Vargas : Because he was high, he might have kissed anyone. I'm sorry.
Karen Cartwright : It's not your fault. I'm the one who can't stop thinking about him. Why do I care so much?
Ana Vargas : Because he's hot and talented. But he's also a player. And after everything you've been through this year, do you really wanna go through that again? Is Hit List really worth it? There'll be other shows.
Karen Cartwright : Not like this one.
Ana Vargas : You haven't even read it.
Karen Cartwright : Then we'll know in two hours.
Ana Vargas : Okay, look, if it's really that important to you, you need to set a boundary. Let him know you need to keep your relationship professional. He can't just go around kissing you, high or not. Okay?
Karen Cartwright : [nods] Okay.
