who think they know everything.

That's the worst part.

It's getting lectured by kids

who think that all the shit

you're going through now

is gonna add up

to something good later,

that for everything you lose,

you'll gain something.

Well, you won't.

I am doing you a fucking favor.

You want to hang out

with an old guy

so you can feel relaxed?

Well, then allow him

to do you this favor

and tell you that you will lose

everything and gain nothing,

not a single fucking thing

except the knowledge

that you've lost everything

and gained nothing.


You say

you want to do me a favor,

but you give me nothing.

How's that doing me a favor?

By helping you

lower your expectations.

Lower your expectations,

and the pain

of realizing how empty it all is

might be lessened.

So you want

to ruin my happiness now

so you can spare me pain later?

I'll take my happiness.

I'll take my pain.

The only thing I don't want

are your goddamn favors.

You should feel guilty

about hanging out

with young girls.

Although, if I were you,

I would feel guiltier

about hanging out

with the old ones,

because I imagine that they have

enough shit to deal with

without being invaded

by your bullshit about nothing.

I would feel guilty about

hanging out with my friends,

if I were you.

I would go into a room,

crawl into a closet

and lock the door.

I'm sorry.

For what?

I'm just sorry, all right?

No, you're not.

What the hell

are you talking about?

I'm telling you I'm sorry,

and you saying I'm not

isn't gonna change

that I'm sorry.


You can say

whatever you want to say,

but you're not sorry.

You're hurt.

I tried. I... I'm sorry.

No, you're not.

It's not like

I did anything terrible to you.

Give me something here,

will you?
