Water leaks when it heats up.

No pressure.

You okay?

I'm just cherry.

Go on and have a seat anywhere.

I'll be right in.

Here, take this with you.

That's your good spring water.

Ain't nothin' good about it.

I bottled it myself.

I get it right there out of the dam.



We're serving inside tonight.

The best barbecue in Texas

around the clock.

I gotta go.

Savin' lives, are you?

Now, how did you know that?

Now, that's a rump roast.


Open the shades.

Get some light in here.

Nice night.


Oh, shit.

I couldn't get off work this week.

But you only have to stay till 10:00.

A friend of mine will be here before

I'm going to eat your brains

and gain your knowledge.

What did I tell you?

No playing with toys at the table.

- Didn't I tell you that?

- Yeah.

There's a packed suitcase

under his bed.

Give it to Tony to take with him

when my friend picks him up.

I'll leave him watching TV.

But you need to be here

in the next 20 minutes.

Thank you.

Hey, what happened to your tooth?

Fell out.


Think you can say a prayer

for your old man?

No dead bodies for Da-da tonight.

No dead bodies for Da-da tonight.



Who was that you were talking to?


She's on her way.

- You believe her?

- No.

Me, neither.

Fucking catastrophe.

- Hey.

- Hey.

- How's it goin', J.T.?

- All right.

- Still open, I see.

- Oh, yeah, all night.

Cup of coffee

and a pack of cigarettes, please.

Free of charge.


is a special night.

What's so special about tonight?

Been open 25 years.

You should've thrown a party.

I did. See the balloons?

You're the second person

to show up tonight.

Who's the first?

Right there.

Must be passin' through.

Seems only strangers eat here.

I still eat here, J.T.
