excerpt from ABC-TV's Happy Endings, Season 1, Episode 7
Max teaches Penny how to be a hipster to make it easier for her to fit in with her new guy - a lethargic and pretentious hipster with hipster friends.
Somewhere between 'Hipster' and 'Intentionally Camp & Ironic' is a Happy Ending.
At 00:32 the adorable Elisha Cuthbert finally says something in this clip...
