Tiny Well, I'm not getting an abortion.

Medical Counselor You might ...

Tiny No, I would not. I don't believe in them.

Medical Counselor Tell me about that. What's your feeling about


Tiny It's like you're murdering somebody. Murd ... I can't pronounce

the word. But, it's like there's a little baby inside you and you're

just killing it. It's not fair to the baby. I mean it's not the baby's


Medical Counselor So, that would not be a choice for you?

Tiny No.

Near Pike Street, Tiny gets into the car of an old man.

Tiny (voice over)

I used to turn dates lots and lots of times. Just about every day I'd

be turning dates day and night, day and night. Then I got busted five

Rat and Jack in the abandoned hotel.

and all this marijuana stuff he had. We walked around Mount Vernon for

two days looking for this guy. I finally told Alan and his friend, man,

I told him 'f*** off, man.' Me and Mike got on the freeway and

hitchhiked all the way up to Bellingham.

Jack That's when you had all of them f***in' keys and the cops were

asking you where you got them. Whatever happened to that Burlington

Northern key?
