some pretty good work for him,

and, well, we could use

some help ourselves.

So as of this afternoon,

you're gonna be working for me.


First week's rent. Hey, that's my girl.

How's it feel

now you're a working woman?

It feels good, actually.

It feels really good.

Take your boyfriend out.

Have a drink on me.

He's not my boyfriend.

Not yet he ain't,

but I know how these things work.

I've seen the way he looks at you.


Thank you.

So what's the rest of your story?

What makes you think

there's a rest of my story?

Well, I reckon when

your little sister found out

about the parakeet

that she tried to kill you,

but actually, you killed her.

No, I didn't kill my little sister.

She's alive and kicking in Tallahassee

with two kids of her own.

Thank you very much.

Okay, glad to hear it.



Well, I got an honorable

discharge from Iraq,

and now I'm here.

Pretty simple, really.

You got chucked out of the army?

No, I got an honorable discharge.

What for?

That's not important.

Now you're drifting around,

trying to make sense of your life?

Actually, I just been offered

a job by the CIA.

Trying to figure out

whether to take it or not.

Are you serious?

Why not?

What the f*ck are you doing

working here then?

Well, if I ever wanted

to get a perspective on my life,

I used to go to my folks' home.

And for whatever reason,

takin' a bath in the guest bedroom,

well, it's what I used to like

to do when I was a kid,

and it would kind of take me

back to that mind-set.

My folks have moved on now,

so I can't do that anymore.

But I used to work in

a hardware depot after college--

not this one but a similar one,

So here I am trying to figure out

if I met myself when I was 21,

would I be proud of who I am now
