They needed something

to spice it up.

Did you have any feelings for...

either one of them?

I liked him better.

And where is he now?

He killed himself.

What do you want?

Your rent.

You're like a week late.

It's due on the 1st.

Today is the 9th, sweetheart.

I'll have it tomorrow.

No, you...

Tomorrow's too late, sweetheart.

Open the door.

Tomorrow's too late.

But, now, if you wanted

to do some trading

like we did back in March...

I'll work with you.

I don't know what you're talking about.

You have my money by tomorrow

morning or you're out of here.


we can't keep doing this.

I can.

Why do you want to?


'Cause why?

Because I'd rather slit my wrist

or be fucking hung upside down

and beaten to a pulp

than have to talk to you.

You're angry.


Don't start that psychological shit.

You really don't like me, do you?

Beth, I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

It's not that...

that I don't like you.

I fucking hate you.


"Why?" "Why?"

Because people that are scared

make me sick.

You think that I'm scared?

I don't know, Beth.

Are you scared?

Hmm? What happened to you?

Tell me.

You gonna say

any-fucking-thing? No?

No, I can play that game, too.


I'll go back to bed.

# Before each other's face #

# Look into my eyes #

# Is it still there? #

# All that time #


Hi, Dad.

A friend of yours, Greg Hicks,

got married last week.

Did you hear?



They had the wedding

over at the Episcopal church

on, uh, Fitz Morris street.

Hurricane knocked down everything

on that street except that church.

Is everything all right with you?

Yeah, same as usual.

That's good. That's good.

You need money?

Dad, I didn't come here

to ask you for money.

Well, I know you didn't.
