it takes for one of

us to kill the other.

Ah, give me something.

We're up two hours

early next shift.

You guys been waiting long?

No, you're good.

Good shift?

Yeah.

Got to catch up on sitting alone

for 70 hours. It was nice.

You know, my contract's up pretty soon.

I was thinking of re-upping.

Nothing else you'd rather do?

No.

I was recruited by a

software company in college.

The kind that

makes apps for phones.

What's wrong?

Pay is no good?

No, it was great, actually.

Obscene, to be honest with you.

Why didn't you do it, then?

I don't know. I don't know, I guess

I just felt like it was silly,

it wasn't really that

important, you know?

I guess I like the idea

of serving my country.

Even if I don't know

exactly what it is I do.

What about you? You never

wanted to do anything else?

There comes a time when you

do a thing long enough,

What?

You have that

look that you get.

What look?

You're squinting one eye as if

you're taking aim with a gun.

You're gonna be late.

It's horrifying.

I'm sure you're

great fun at parties.

Seriously, you don't

have to think about

killing everyone

that you ever meet.

I don't.

Okay.

So, just for fun, what would

happen if I wasn't here on Monday?

horrible train accident?

No. Train's here.

I'm just not on it.

It wouldn't be fun.

Come on, what would happen?

I'd have to make a phone call.

You'd have to

make a phone call?

I would make a phone call.

No fun.

Company man.

Hi.

How you doing?

Good.

You should have seen

your face back there.

What?

When I didn't get off

the train right away,

you looked like you were about
