EVIE: [CHUCKLES] You’re my designated friend, and I love you.

MICHAELA: Evie, tonight was supposed to be my night to celebrate, and instead, I get to be the grown-up because a cute bartender was feeding you shots.

EVIE: What are you doing?

MICHAELA: I’m calling Uber.

EVIE: No, I need my car in the morning, and you’re totally fine.

MICHAELA: No, dude, don’t do this to me.
