The Viral is the ninety-ninth webisode in the KateModern video series.


(Tariq is wearing mirrored sunglasses and typing at his laptop inside his office.)

Tariq: Come in.

(Lee knocks on the door and enters wearing a hat.)

Lee: (pointing to Tariq's chin, monotonous) What's that on your chin? Have you had a shave today?

Tariq: This morning, yes.

(Takes off hat and pulls out a razor)

Lee: Do you mind borrowing my Gilette Fusion Powers Stealth? It's really good for a smooth and a close shave.

(taking off sunglasses and slamming laptop shut)

Tariq: (standing up) Guys, I'm not doing this. This is just embarrassing.

Gavin: (off-camera) Yeah.

Tariq: This is a waste of time. I'm serious.

Gavin: (off-camera) Yeah. Alright, alright. (to Lee) Take this. (on-camera) This is-this is shit. It is embarrassing. You got to come up with something better.

Charlie: But I don't know what else to do! (to Lee holding camera) What about you? Have you got any better ideas? Maybe-maybe Lee can help me.

Gavin: No point asking him that. He doesn't shave. Unless, what? You shave your legs now, Lee?

Tariq: Look, we don't have time to make this stupid, corny video, okay?

Charlie: Please, Tariq. Please!

Tariq: Listen, look, these are our office hours, you hear? And you're intruding on our office hours.

Charlie: No!

Tariq: Listen, we're suppose to be making our corporate training today, for our business. Our business.

Charlie: Please, please!

Gavin: Yeah, well, come off. You can't-you can't talk. We've had to do all sorts of crazy stuff for Kate. Oh, yeah, including going off (Charlie groans) in a van for a week, with you're boyfriend Steve, trying to find her, even though she didn't want to be brought back home. (pokes Tariq in the chest, pushing Tariq back) So, you can't talk.

Tariq: Fine. (grabs jacket off of chair) You know what? Forget it. Forget it! (walks out of office)

Gavin: What? Hey! What?

Charlie: Now what am I going to do? What am I going to do?

Gavin: What--I'm sorry. But-I know you're a bit stressed, but you need a rest. Forget about this "viral video" thing. No offense, but this is shit. What you've come up with is embarrassing.

Charlie: Thanks! You're telling me what I'm doing is shit. You want me to have a rest? How am I going to rest? I'm going to get fired! I'm not going to have a job, Gav!

(grabs jacket)

Gavin: I'm just saying.

Charlie: Oh, you're so understanding.

Gavin: (as Charlie walks out the door; off camera) I was trying to be constructive.

Charlie: Try, try. Try harder, Gav!

(Charlie slams door)

Gavin: Women, eh? I try and try to help. Should we go to the pub? (camera moves left to right, as in "no") What? Apologize?

(camera moves up and down, as in "yes." Gavin scoffs)

Lee: Chocolates.

Gavin: I've got an idea. I think, I'm gonna get some chocolate. I think...Yeah.

(Scene cuts to someone, most likely Gavin, typing in an MSN search bar, "supermarket in." Map appears. Scene cuts to Gavin entering a building.)

Lee: Hey, Gav! Gav! Wasn't it a good idea of mine to get the chocolates?

Gavin: Um, well, ye-well, yeah, okay. Strictly speaking it was your idea of chocolates. But if you watch and learn there's a certain way of presenting things to a women, getting into a girl's mindset.

Lee: You don't know about girls.

Gavin: No, sh. I'm trying to teach you something here. If you watch they way I handle it--(seeing items in front of Charlie's apartment, he cuts off. Turns to camera and begins to sprinting closer) Hey! Hey.

Charlie: (on floor, crying) I've been evicted.

Gavin: What?

Charlie: I've been evicted. (camera pans to door, where a letter with a red "EVICTION" is) Kate hadn't even told me she stopped paying her half of the rent. How could I've been so stupid not to think of it. What's happened to me, Gav?

Gavin: Oh, babe. Come here.

(signals to Lee to cut)
