Hey, you.

Are you sober?

Yes, Ma'am.

Just barely.

Did you have fun tonight?

I bet you did.

Go say good night to Uncle Tommy

before I put him down.

- I have to?

- Yes, Ma'am.

Then, straight to bed. And don't

forget to say your prayers.

Never cheat

the man upstairs.

Good night, Mama.

Good night, Daddy.

Good night, baby.

Night night.

What's wrong with her?

Oh, she'll be all right.

- And what about you?

- What about me?

You sober?

Hey, Uncle Tommy,

I came to say good night.



Oui, une grande party.

It was boring.

Where were you?

It's true, I saw them.

He had his hands on her.

It's true.

He was all up against her,

and her dress was...

- That's a lie!

- I saw them!

He was all up against her

and her dress was up

- and they were rubbing.

- Shh!

Stop it.

Just stop it.

I'm going to tell you

what happened.

- What?

- I can't see a thing.

Just hold on to my hand.

They came in to get

some more wine...

and Daddy told her a joke.

And she fell

against him laughing.

- And they woke you up.

- (glass clinking)

You sure?

I'm certain.
