And we meet in dangerous places.

I've had too much to drink in this one.

I know another one.

No. There is something about tonight

that wants a place like this.

It's where you end a holiday.

- You've been on a holiday?

- Sort of.

I don't much like holidays.

Poor baby.

Are you an orphan?

Yeah. I'm an orphan of destiny.

I see life in all its dirty details.

- You know how it is.

- Sure I know how it is.

- You had a hard day.

- You could say that.

And you'd like to relieve the stress.

Sounds like a good idea to me.

Only maybe you are confusing me

with another kind of woman.

No, I'm not confusing anything.

Maybe it's just me.

- I have to go.

- Wait. I thought we were doing good here.

- We were. Now I have to leave.

- Don't go, please.

- Let me start all over again.

- You started just fine.

In fact, you just about

swept me off my feet.

- I did?

- I said "just about."

I really do have to go. I'm expected.

So why are you here?

I thought I'd meet somebody interesting.

And I have.

- So there's no sweeping you off your feet?

- No.

- Are you sure?

- Yeah, I'm sure.

But I can't help admiring real effort.

Here she is.

Thanks a lot.


Rachel, what are you doing out here?

Just getting some fresh air.

You're out here drinking.

It don't look good, you being out here

drinking so the damn neighbours can see.

They're all asleep.

Where were you?

Playing cards. I told you.

I forgot.

You always forget.

I don't want you out here

drinking anymore.


That's your name, isn't it? Rachel Munro.

- Do I know you?

- We met last night.

Last night?

I'm sorry. I didn't recognise you.

I don't have my contacts.

Kyle Bodine.


You already know.

How'd you find me?

It wasn't hard.

I wanted to apologise
