Damn it, I need the bid in before 12...

yeah it's critical...

look, just call West

have him fax the timesheet to the main office...

Get it there by ...

Speak up, I can't hear you.

Some people just don't know what to wish for.

As for my part in this story,

well, it began on a Tuesday.

September 18th.

My birthday.

My 22nd birthday to be exact.

Oh, I'm Neal Oliver.

And this mess, is my apartment

in St. Louis. Missouri.

Where at this particular moment

I was at

Should I wear a tie to lunch?


Happy birthday Neal...



You are not mad,

that I'm bailing on you tonight?

No, no no no.

I mean how cool it you be for you,

to bomb your psyche-test because of some stupid concert

No aah. You have got to wait until lunch.

That's your family rules.

But you can open this.

I intercepted your snail mail.

It's the reality check.

I'm game over on the art scholarship.

We should at least open it.

I can tell a rejection by weight.

You are the wrong sex, the wrong colour

and your family has too much money. I'm sorry.

Just don't, don't mention anything

to my old man, please.

You are so weird.


Well, you actually suppose to cut your grapefruit in half

and eat it with a spoon

not peel it, and eat it like an orange.

Oh look... it's her.


Should I be like jealous?

Oh, maybe if she was real.

So, I had another dream about her,

last night.

She was in jail...

it's got to mean something.

I'll tell you what it means.

You saw her once somewhere

and made a subconscious impression,

the impression came back to you in a dream,

so you drew her

which made the impression stronger.

You dream, you draw, you draw, you dream

Now it's a vicious cycle.

So quit drawing her, and it'll end.

Well, thank you Karl Young.
