and the guy yells, "Cunt!"

Dig it? You understand what I mean?

It's a very fantastic thing,

I thought that was terrific.

I mean, it's a fantastic thing,

what he did.


Anyway, I don't know, if I...

If I really believed in a desire...

...I don't think it would frighten me

so much, do you understand that?

I think I know what you're saying.

The idea of desire is

very much a part of our culture.

After all, the Myrthians thought they had

a desire for blood, not a need for it.

But it was a need.

Good grief.

I think what we're talking about...

is hunger.

Do you know what hunger is?

I don't know what hunger is.

I sit and I eat,

but I don't know what hunger is.

Dr Green... I'm Jack Sargent.

Good to see you. Come this way...

I'm Jack Sargent. Good to see you.



I'm drunk, OK?

Not drunk enough to

jump out of that tree.

Look, will you do me a favor?

Don't try to impress me, all right?

- All right.

- OK.

Is there anything I can do?

Yes, there is something you can do.

Don't bullshit me.

All right.

Would you do me a favor

and hand me my drink down there?

- Where is it?

- No, over there, right at your feet.

Right down there, OK?


Thank you.

What are you doing?

What are you...?

You put something in my drink.

You put something

in my goddamn drink, I saw you!

What's in the drink?

I removed a few dead ants.

That all right?

I'm neurotic, OK?

What does that mean,

"I'm neurotic"?

Actually it means that

this hasn't got anything to do with you.

OK? May I have it? I need it.

- It has nothing to do with me?

- No.

Except it is my tree and my rope.

You see, that would give the authorities

the right to invade my privacy

with all sorts of

embarrassing questions.

Dr Green, actually I thought
