Who gives a shit?

Who the hell are you? I'm cuffing

Stop, you stinking trash!

Come on. Get in.

They're good, yeah?

Let me see that arm.

No, I'm fine.

Hold on.

You need stitches.

I can't go to a hospital.

Do you have a phone?

You only have nine numbers.

What are you doing?

You want our help?

Don't...

WOMAN:
Hello?

Sarah, are you there?

Just say something, honey,

so I know you're okay.

The dogs miss you.

All right, I'll talk

You don't have to say anything

if you don't want to.

Sarah...

Sarah?

(SARAH EXCLAIMS)

What is this, Luca? I thought you

were scavenging for the jam.

I was.

She's in trouble, dude.

No, Luca, she needs to go.

She needs to see Doc.

You should talk to Benji first.

(SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY)

Doc?

This is Sarah. She slipped the cops.

She's got a bad gash.

Benji know?

Sit down.

Drink this.

It'll numb the pain.

I'm okay.

It's no chemical.

Purely vegetal.

What is that?

Superglue.

That doesn't seem safe.
