and I go...

"Well, um...

"I'm going to break into your house

"and then I'll kill your dog

and set the house on fire.

"Then I'll dance through your garden

"naked like some

mad, crazed werewolf.

"And I'll bite and I'll mangle

"and I'll tear the tongue

out of everything that's breathing.

"Then I'll hurl myself into the sky,

"the ethereal sky, flaming,

"like God's darkest angel.

"And I'll explode

into a goddamn heavenly fireball.


"Boom! You guys wanna see this?

"I can't wait. Boom."

What? What?

You scared the sh*t out of me,

I tell you.

Well, believe me,

I ain't going anywhere, thank God.


- When's your review coming up?

- Next month.

- You gonna twitch like your cellie?

- Nope.

- You don't like it around here (?)

Everyone knows Henry's innocent (!)


- Board doesn't like you denying it.

- I didn't do the crime.

- But you got the time.

So you might as well have done it.

I kinda like that.

That's funny, know what I mean?

If you did the time, you might as

well have done the crime. It's cute.

You're cute too, kid.

Get up. You're finished.

- Get out of here.

- Thanks, Max.


You never did tell me

what your dream was, Max.


You never told me your dream.

- I'm living it.

- Really?

Well, yeah.

I mean, it's easy, living in here.

I got nothing to prove,

all you really gotta do is show up

and they even do that for you.

So, er... it's nice. It's good, yeah.

This place is horrible, Max.

Well, that makes me wonder

why er... Why didn't you ever talk?

- When?

- Back then. When you had the chance.

I mean, why?

I felt maybe this was my way out.

Oh. Was it?


- Bullshit.

- What do you mean?

I mean bullshit. Nothing's changed.

I mean, whether you're

out there or you're here...
