I'm sure.

Jack, I need you for a moment.

Just... excuse me.


The truth is, I saw you standing

alone and I thought, you know...

he's not mixing very well.

Well, I'm mixing my drinks,

does that count?

Could I introduce you?

Would you like that?

Not really.

I know it's a little bit awkward

meeting people, but...

you have to be brave.

There are some lovely people here.

Brave? Me? No way.

I'm a total coward.

I'm still afraid of the dark.

Do you sleep with the lights on?

Hey, Robert.

- This is Walt. Have you met?

- No... no.

Hey Walt,

this is Robert over there.

Walt, this is Robert.

Robert's nice.

You're kinda heavy...

Hey, Jack, I'm not feeling too great,

I think I'm gonna get going.

- Are you leaving?

- I've got a headache coming on, I...

Is it bad? Coz I could like

get you an aspirin or something?

It's not too bad,

it's probably just a tumour.

- Are you okay to drive?

- Yeah, I'll be fine.

I could drive you home, if you want.

No, that's fine, I'm okay.

It's not too bad that I can't drive.

I'm fine. Thank you.

Okay. Well, thanks for coming.

I'm glad you could come.

- Listen, I'm sorry, I'm sorry...

- Of course, of course. No problem.


Bye, Robert.

- I'll see you Monday.

- Alright, will do. Take care man.

Oh god...

It's okay.

No, no, no, no,

please don't be afraid.

I'm so, so sorry.

I didn't mean to scare you.

My name's Robert Forrester.

Stand right there!


Are you going to call the police?

You should call the police.

You probably should, I think.

Look, it's no excuse, but...

I'm leaving.



What were you gonna say?

I was gonna say that...

Look, can I be honest with you?

I've been here a few times before, okay?

I just watch you in the kitchen,

doing stuff.

Listening to music, cooking,
