Leave a message.

Yeah, and, uh...

and I love you.

Okay. Okay, bye.

You know, you shouldn't smoke.

It's unhealthy.

I know, that's why I like it.

Hate the taste, love the cancer.

I'm pretty sure there's

better-tasting ways to get cancer.

You a drug dealer?

Do I look like a drug dealer?


But are you?

Are you looking to buy some drugs?

Of course not.

Then it shouldn't make any

difference how I look, should it?

Shouldn't use drugs.

It can make you irrational.

You don't know the half of it.

I heard you cuss.

Shouldn't you be in school?

Nope. Holiday.

Uh, no.

No, it's not a holiday.

See, that's your problem

right there--skipping school.

That leads straight to drugs.

Is that how you started usin'?



It's slang for drugs.

I know what it is.

- 'Course you do.

Must know all

the slang, near, huh?

What's your name, slick?

My name--

my name is for my friends.

Heh, me too.

I'm Antoine, but most

of my homies call me A.T.

It is a holiday, though.

No, it's not.

It's the fucking middle of October.

I don't see any floats, I don't see

any flags, I don't see any Santas.

Don't see any of those.

You think I'm stupid?

Are you stupid?

Shouldn't tell kids they're stupid.

They do grow up to believe it.

Did your mom tell you that?

No. I figured it out.

Well, you're probably right.

Is that what happened to you?

I don't have time for you, kid.

You don't have time?

You're sitting on a bench, man.

I'm thinking.

- About what?

What a miracle my life's

gonna be when you vanish.

That hurts my feelings.


Does it? I'm sorry.

I really am...

but I just need

some time alone, okay?

Maybe he just works here.

He doesn't work here.

They go inside, they make the

transaction, then we move in.

They're never gonna

believe we're real cops,
