Long Nights Short Mornings

Synopsis: James breaks it off with Katie, but feels bad about it. He doesn't like hurting people. At least he's seeing Monica tonight, she's always fun. He doesn't connect with her though, not like with Sarah - but they're just friends. He was close with Natalie too, until she moved to LA. That reminds him, he's going to work with that actress, Anna something. She's probably too famous to talk to him though. And besides, Lily should be back soon and he really wants to see her. Sometimes he misses Lorraine, but thinking about her just makes him sad. Whenever he feels lonely, he texts Rapunzel - that's not her name, he just can't remember it. He should really delete her from his phone. But he can't.

I want this conversation

to never have happened.

But since it has happened, since we

can't go back in f***ing time, I...

I want you to talk to me

like a man.

Throw me in the garbage

like you want to, instead of...

Talking around it, and acting

like you're doing me a favor.

I want you to tell me

that you don't love me,

or like me all that much really.

And that you never will.

I don't. I never will.


Katie, wait.

I need to go to the bathroom.

Go, bro. Go, bro. Go, bro.

Oh, sh*t.






You found me.

Thank, god. I was so scared.

It's okay.

Everything's gonna be okay.

Goddamn it.

There should be sign that says,

"no f***in'."

- You guys need to get off my f***ing

bus right now. -Whoa, sorry.

I'm sorry. Okay, really,

I apologize.

- But, we're newlyweds.

- What?

Look, please don't kick us out. We're in the

middle of nowhere in the middle of the night.

It's dangerous.

All right? Please.

You can't f***.

We're not... we're not f***ing.

Okay? We're...

Look. Hey, look,

I'll sit over here.

Okay? I'm sitting over here.

Okay? Is that okay?

All right, I guess so.

- Come on.

- I'm fine.

Hold on.


- Are you serious?

- I must have left them upstairs.

Damn it.

I'm sorry.

Not out here.

- It's not lady-like.

James, no!

We're not f***ing outside

on the street, okay?


Fine, I'll climb

the fire escape.

James, no. You're crazy.

Where's your place?

It's far.

Well, can't you call someone?

Who, it's four in the morning.

Hold on, I got a missed call.

- Yeah, it's from me.

- No.


It's me. Sorry, I was out.

I'm locked out.

Are you home?


I'll be right there.

Sorry, dude.

Gotta go to bed.

I can't go adventuring with you for

another hour to find your place.
