You're gonna do laundry?

[keys clatter]

Can you take out your earphones?


You asked me

about doing laundry.

I did do laundry.

Yeah, but you just left it

in the basket without folding.

- It's clean...

- Whatever, it's fine.

- It's fine.

- I didn't finish.

I'll do it.

- I'll just have to do it myself.

- Jesus Christ.

How's she doing?

Do you have to complain

about everything that I do?

Ethel's fine.

She's fine, like she's


She's fine, she's resting?

She's watching TV? What?

- What is she doing right now?

- She's sleeping.

She's fine.

She's alive.

I talked to her.

I've seen her all day.

- What did you talk about?

- We talked about...

Okay, I don't remember

if we actually talked that much.

Whatever, I-I...

My mom has

congestive heart failure.

She's not just laying around

for the fun of it.

I just need you

to fucking help me, Angie.

Like, fucking chill out.

I was chill

until I walked into the house

- and I see shit everywhere...

- Yeah, well,

I was fucking chill

before you walked

into the house.

I was relaxing...

Oh, I'm sure, because

you're high and you're drunk.

I could get

somebody else to do it.

Great. However much you're

gonna pay that other person,

'cause nobody else is gonna take

slave wages the way I do.

Well, why don't you get

a real fucking job

rather than lying

on the couch...

I have a real job.

All day smoking pot

and getting drunk?

- Go and get a fucking job!

- I have a job at night!

If you got a real job, then

we could pool money together

to hire somebody

who actually cleans up.

You're mom is dying.

I can't save her life.

That's really fucking nice.

I can't...

I can't do it on my own,

and I need your help.
