Come on. That's a boy.

You almost scared me, boy.

You ugly sucker!


This ain't my dreamland.

If you're here,

I'm gonna pound your ass!

Fuckin' "A."

You shouldn't have buried me.

I'm not dead.

Take that, motherfucker!

Kristen, Freddy's back!

I'll see you in hell.

Tell 'em Freddy sent ya.

One down...

two to go.


How's this for a wet dream?

Kristen! Help!

Show it!

Hi, guys.

Sorta defeats the purpose,

don't it?

- What?

- The mirror.

You can't see yourself in it.

I don't want to.

You know,

if Mom was still alive...

Dad wouldn't treat us like this.

Alice, you gotta learn

to stand up for yourself.

You know, fight back.

Like that.

It's all in the mind.

You see yourself

doing something...

and your body reacts

and does it.

Like so.

Like that. Now you do it.

Me? No, I can't.

- Yeah, you can.

- No, I can't.

Yes, you can.

Just get up there and just...

Like that.

Big and strong. Do it.

Good, but, Alice-san...

you must have balance.

So go to it.

Swish. Killed a fish.

Joey, I'm getting tired

of picking up your clothes.

And this crap...

I wish you'd turn it off.

Here you are.

Where were you this morning?

Rick's looking all over.

Have you seen Joey and Kincaid?

I can't find them.

I'm sure they're around.

Well, I'm not so sure.

We have matching luggage again.

The bags under your eyes.


God, I hate dreaming.

I love to dream.

I just hate the ones

about my dad.

How do you handle

your nightmares?

My mom taught me

when I was little.

Did you ever hear

of the dream master?

Sounds like

a game show host to me.

No, it's a rhyme.

Just have to dream

about someplace fun.

Remember, you're in control.

How do you know so much

about dreams?

When it's all you have,

you kinda become an expert.
