Gays love houses. Tom, the dead|guy, was really loaded.

I'd already worked on the beautiful|dumb one. He helped out.

I laid it on kind of thick about|Mom drinking...

and how tough it was on me|watching my step dad die...

which is, like, so opposite.

And how it would give Mom and me a|chance to grieve in our own ways...

if there was a little distance|between us, just for the summer.

Plus, I'd clean for them, or tell|the maid places she missed.

Bill was like the definition of a|softie.

Matt didn't look like a fairy at|all.

But it was easy to see why he'd|screw around with Bill.

And a blow job is a blow job if|you're getting one.

If you're giving one, it's harder. But|even so, it's like rule one about sex.

If you don't breathe in, a person|can do anything for ten minutes.

A runaway.|It's like harboring a fugitive...

Everything was going great until|she showed up.

The sister of Tom, the dead guy.

That's how Bill met him.

She teaches next to him, and one day|she introduces him to her brother.

This is like eight years ago.

She probably thought they could|fish or play ball together.

And they end up with their dicks|in each other's mouth.

She looked|like she never got over it.

Gross. But notice how pretty the|urn is.

That's typical gay.

I'm gonna clear the table.

No, no, but--|Matt and me.

What's your name again?

Lucia Dalury.

It's weird. How do you spell it?


It should be pronounced Luchia.

When I was a kid learning how to|spell...

I thought they were just|pronouncing it wrong.

Because I have two sisters, Marcia|and Tricia.

C-I-A, sha.

So I decided it was pronounced|Lusha...

and it stuck. And now I kind of|like it.

Yeah, it makes you different.

Do you have a cigarette?

No, I don't.
