in their lifetimes.

A former student of mine

is exhibiting downtown.

I think you'll like her work.

I want you to go.

- Who?

- Her name is Ingrid Capozzoli.

Ingrid Capozzoli.

You taught Ingrid Capozzoli?

Yes. 100 ago, but yes.

She's great.

So you'll go.



And suck some of it up.

Okay, Danny?


Start over.

No wings.

What are you doing?

Hey, dude.

What the hell

do you think you're doing?

Your mom said

I could watch some TV.

Did she say you could

go through my personal things?

Sorry, dude.

My dad bounced for the weekend.

He dropped me off here.

You know, business.

So it looks like we'll be roomies

for a couple of days.

I'm Carter.

I know who you are.

Why here?

I don't know.

They met at AA.

They're still talking about that stunt

you pulled at school.

You've got a lot of people nervous.

Yeah. Whatever.

So, what else do you hide

in this room?

Your mom says

I can't smoke in the house.

You want to go for a walk?

So I've seen you around school

with that girl.

The one with the limp.


She's cool.

She's my best friend.

You fucking her?

No. She's my friend.

So you got a boyfriend

or something?

I just have friends.

I thought athletes

weren't supposed to smoke?

Nerves, I guess.

But you're right.

It's stupid.

But you have to admit,

it makes me look cool.

Yeah. Whatever.

So what do you have

to be nervous about?

Well, swimming isn't as easy

as it looks, you know.

I'm not just out there

splashing around for fun.

So, how come you swim

if you don't like it?

It's not that I don't like it.

It's that I got good

and everything changed.

Like what?

It's a lot of pressure.



Oh, no. Don't spoil your appetite.

I'm making a roast chicken.

We have to nosh on something.

No. No noshing.

Don't worry,
