for your little girl.

You feel sorry

for my little girl?

So tell me a little bit

about your job searching.

I tried.

I looked a long time.

I was at the mall,

asking in clothing stores.

Those jobs are hard to get.

I don't see why you don't try

for one of those fast-food places.

I'd rather not work

in a fast-food place if I don't have to.

I don't believe

in what they're doing.

I don't.

You won't even eat

at those places.

A person has to work.

So, where did you apply?

Food Emporium, and Contempo.

I mean, it's called

"Wet Seal" now.

Those are union.

Don't waste your time.

Food Emporium is, but I didn't

find that out until I got there.

Not Wet Seal.

They don't want a girl

like me anyway.

Something will come through.

That's beautiful, honey.

Can I see?

Who wants a sip of mine?



- Yeah?

- Yeah.


No, thank you.

It's illegal.

Alice Manning, the police

might come and get you

if you have a sip.

I'll protect you.


Ronnie, this is beautiful.

It's so powerful

and dark and interesting.

You're really talented,

you know that?

Will you sign it for me?


What about this one?


That leather one over there,

that's the shit.

We are not getting

a leather couch.

How you gonna tell me

we ain't getting a leather couch?

Look at that shit.

That shit is fly.

- That's why we ain't got company.

- It's too soft?

You guys getting closer?

- Yes, we are.

- Not... not with that one. No.

- I like this one.

- That's chintz.

It's our new line.

A "bitch"?

That's "bitch." It ain't chintz.

- The leather, yeah, that's...

- Okay, all right. Sure.

- What's up with this?

- I ain't getting a leather couch.

What's up with that?

You can give me a price on that?

Devlin, I ain't

getting no leather couch.

- This is how I can kick back.
