Inside Out - Riley's First Date? - Jordan Arrives Clip

First clip

Riley's First Date? is a Pixar short film that was released with the DVD, Blu-ray and Digital HD release of Inside Out.[1]


When Jordan shows up to take Riley out skating, her parents suspect their daughter is going out on a date. While Mrs. Andersen goes upstairs to ask Riley, Mr. Andersen stays downstairs with Jordan, who is laying back at the table. Both the parents' Emotions don't agree with what's afoot, especially Mr. Andersen's. They give Jordan the silent treatment but he doesn't react. They next try intimidation, but only get a slight chuckle from Jordan. Mr. Andersen's Anger tells his fellow emotions to increase the pressure and ask what Jordan likes to do for fun. When Jordan says he doesn't know, Mr. Andersen's Emotions prepare to give him the boot until he mentions that he plays in a band. This brings back a memory of when Mr. Andersen was a guitarist in a band.

Meanwhile, Mrs. Andersen tries to ask Riley if Jordan is taking her out on a date. All this does is make Riley and her Emotions feel embarrassed, especially when Mrs. Andersen uses pop words and ebonics. Suddenly, loud rock music booms through the house, and when Riley goes downstairs she finds her dad and Jordan playing air guitar to AC/DC's "Back in Black", much to her shock. Later, Riley and Jordan leave for the skate park, leaving Mr. and Mrs. Andersen satisfied that Jordan is a good kid before sharing a kiss.



  • Two of Sid's glow-in-the-dark posters from Toy Story appear in the Headquarters of Jordan's emotions.
  • Riley's voice is noticeably deeper in this short film as compared to Inside Out, possibly due to puberty foreshadowed by the appearance of the puberty alarm at the end of the movie.
  • Jordan and Mr. Andersen jam along to the AC/DC's song "Back in Black". The song also plays over the end credits.
    • This is also the first time that an actual hard rock song is put into Pixar media.
  • The other item of licensed music used in this short is "Take My Breath Away" by Berlin, originally from the movie Top Gun. This plays over the stinger, hence is not used until after it is credited. The song was also used in a Toy Story 3 trailer.
  • This is the first Inside Out short film to to be rated G by the MPAA, unlike the original film which was rated PG.
  • The final Inside Out production to feature Bill Hader and Mindy Kaling as the voices of Fear and Disgust before the sequel feature the news voices of Fear and Disgust: Liza Lapira and Tony Hale (from Toy Story 4).
