cream for the rest of my life.


Big muscles, big dreams.

Yeah, my mom says

I'm army material.

That's a good place to meet men.

The army.

- Yeah.

- Yeah.

I don't know if I should do it.

My sister is having a baby

and I wanna stick around.

Help her out so...

No, you should get out of

here when you can, soldier.

Yeah, where we going?

I am never leaving.


We're gonna have

a very good time

before you get out of here.

What are we gonna do?

I don't know,

I have a few ideas.

Probably starting with shots.

William, two shots.

A brown stuff.

Oh, my god.

Is that you wearing

a bon jovi t-shirt?

My mom and one of her

creepo boyfriends

took me to a concert in Jersey,

for the one and only time I've

ever been out of Pennsylvania.

Your mom was cool though.

She was flying, Joey.

Passed out before

the concert even started.

Scumbag fingered me

under the bleachers

while they played

"livin' on a prayer".

Don't look at me like that.

I ain't gonna tell you nothing.

Let me show you.

I went to this rainbow gathering

on the other side

of Pennsylvania.

Trippy amazing.


There's the grateful dead

and still,

still going and Jerry Garcia...

We could go on tour.

I bet they've got

a real nice bus.

And we can get fake boyfriends.

So that

no one will be suspicious.

I don't care what people think.

Yeah, right.

There are these girls

at the rainbow gathering...

and they were all

lovey-dovey and shit,

and they shared a tent,

and nobody in their crew

said nothing about it.

Where were they from?

I asked them.

Burlington, Vermont.


I took off next Wednesday

to take you to that

army physical.


Keep those on,

and try the blouse with them.

Mary's niece, Kelly,

you remember her?

Kind of.

Bonnie's older sister.
