So we're at this big, fancy music industry party.
Schlepping hot dogs,
when who comes up to us but the man himself.
The myth, the legend...
-胡说 -没错 哥们
- Bullshit. - Yeah way, dude.
Jacob Jewel, the singer?
Jacob "voice of a goddamn angel" Jewel, yes!
What did he say?
He said, "What kind of fucked-up hamburger is this?"
See, the guy is so rich,
he doesn't even know what normal people eat.
So we tell him,
"that's a dog, dude."
To which he spits it out all over us.
I mean, w-we calm him down,
we assure him it's not actually a dog.
He goes, "Oh, thank God.
"'Cause my wife's got, like, four Pomeranians.
"I don't know if I could trust myself to be around them
"if I knew they tasted this good.
"'Cause this is... the greatest thing I've ever eaten.
Did you guys make this?"
And what were we supposed to say?
We wanted the guy to like us. So we go...
We tell him we invented the hot dog.
"We just grill up a few dogs when we're taking a break
from being successful songwriters."
So he says, "Songwriters, huh?
"Well, you know,
"my label actually just picked up this big dance track
"for my next single, and I hate it.
"What I really want is a nice, classic love song.
"And if you guys have stuff that's half as good as this dog,
send us some tracks."
So I tell him, "We've got stuff that's ten times
as good as that hot dog."
Sara probably shouldn't have said something
so astounding while his mouth was full,
'cause the guy just starts fucking choking.
And Sara's like, "Stand back!
- I know the Heimlich!" - I could not stop lying.
So I google "Heimlich," I show it to Pierce,
他开始大喊 "呼吸 呼吸 呼吸"
and he's shouting, "Breathe! Breathe! Breathe!"
And this guy comes out of the crowd, like,
"Everybody move aside. I am a doctor. "
我瞥了他一眼 "可不嘛 你是医生
I'm like, "Yeah, you're a doctor
and I'm a successful songwriter. "
But he was a doctor.
And the good news is, Jacob made it.
And the great news is he knows who we are now.
I mean, sure, it's because he thinks
we invented the hot dog,
but when you see an opportunity, you take it.
How do you think the hot dog was actually invented?
Somebody looked at a pile of pig guts one day,
and said, "I could work with this."
So he wants a love song. We're gonna give him one.
But the thing is, he needs it, like, yesterday.
Otherwise the label's just gonna use that dance track.
So do you guys have anything to send him?
Not yet. But...
did you know that Dolly Parton wrote "Jolene"
and "I Will Always Love You" in one aftemoon?
All we gotta do is half that, and we're two people.
So we're gonna go into the studio,
you're gonna lock us in, and do not let us out
until we have a hit song.
I mean it, Theo.
I give up. I give up.
We-we don't have anything.
It's been hours, and we have nothing.
One aftemoon, my ass.
Fuck Dolly Parton! She's full of shit.
Okay, we are not giving up.
We just can't think when we're trapped inside this box.
That's-that's what it is.
We are writing about love.
We just need to step out into the world
and open up our hearts
to inspiration and truth
And I'm hungry.
Theo, can you let us out?
You told me not to.
But didn't you just hear my speech about inspiration?
Yeah, and that whole thing about us being hungry.
Come on, guys. Think about all the money you could make.
That's certainly what I'm thinking about.
I mean, I let you use this space and...
produce all your songs for practically nothing.
Call me selflsh, but...
This is a big opportunity
and I'm not gonna let you choke under the pressure.
Okay, fine. If l can't leave,
I'm just gonna draw some inspiration from some videos.
I-- Where's my phone?
No distractions, Sara.
Okay, so you're scrolling through Twitter.
And you're-you're seeing a lot of pictures.
Your cousin just got married.
You come across a GIF
of, uh, a tiny, small little frog--
smaller than you-- than you'd imagine.
I don't know. I can imagine a pretty small frog.
Oh, no, no, not like this frog.
This frog's really tiny, like it's using a-a dime
like a-- like it's a lily pad.
I like that one.
We have a winner.
That's our inspiration.
A small frog, on a dime.
Frog isn't the focus.
"On a dime," that's a phrase.
对 比如 比如一次廉价的约会
Yes. Uh, uh, like, like a, like a cheap date.
Like "on a dime." Like-like a love song about a cheap date.
不 你"变化无常" 我的心意骤然转变
No. You "turn on a dime." My heart turned on a dime.
*My heart turn-- turned on a dime*
*Your love is...*
好 这很好 我们有眉目了
Okay, no, this is good. We're getting somewhere.
