You should soak that.

I brought you something.

I folded them by hand.

There's 1,000 of them in there.

This is...

Happy Birthday.

I got it.

If you need to talk to someone, I can get

a recommendation from Jamie Chubinsky.

His dad wrote a book

on P.T.S.D. or something.

Mona Wilson is haunting me.

You take your meds last night?

That's got nothing to do with this.

Now you're busting your head open

on the kitchen floor?

- With the star jar.

- This is different.

I got to go study.

Look, I understand this

is probably a huge headfuck.

But you don't believe me?

That what... that Mona Wilson's

coming back from the dead to haunt you?

It was an invasion of privacy.

That doesn't warrant suicide,

much less a fucking haunting.

Look, you're fucked up, man.

You've been fucked up.

You don't call us. You don't talk to us.

All you want to do is sit in the house

and think about Mona.

It was my fault.

That's bullshit. She was crazy as shit.

She was gonna do this one way or the other.

- F*ck you.

- No, f*ck you.

I don't have to ask around. There's a pretty

clear consensus on who this girl was.

Forget it.

She never even fucking talked

to anybody. She just walked around,

listening to her emotional-ass music, acting

like she was better than the rest of us.

- She was misunderstood.

- A misunderstood bitch.

A selfish bitch, and nothing

proves that more than her deciding

to make you watch her blow

her fucking head off.

You have any idea how long Abby

worked on those stars?


- She wants to hurt me.

- Let's get inside the house.

She wants to hurt me like I hurt her.

"You will feel what I feel."

What else could that possibly mean?

I mean, she wants to fucking punish me

for what I did to her.

- Where is it?

- What?

The e-mail.

- Don't look at me like that.
