Damn it!

- Did you put sugar in it?

- Yes, want me to drink it for you?

- Come here.

- What's wrong?

- Are you upset?

- No, I'm in a hurry.

Does she have to go?

It's important.

You should go to work now.


Quiet, you'll wake up Gina.

Breakfast is ready.

- Watch it, butterfingers!

- Hush up!

Great, my manicure's ruined.

- I said no!

- All the kids have one.

Who cares!

Hurry or you'll be late!

- Put on your backpack, you're late.

- Leave me alone.

I said be quiet,

your sister got home late last night.

- Go!

- Is my iPod inside?


I can't bear to look at you

with that thing in your mouth!

- What have you done?

- What?

- Did you do them yourself?

- Sabrina did, why?

Come on...

Almost done.


Let me finish this baby toe,

which I adore.

It's the first thing I saw:

your foot with this long baby toe.

It was so cute!

You've told me that a million times.

Come here, enough with that!

You could use some work here...

What? Where?

- What's this?

- They're yours.

- Mine?

- Yes.

How tall are these heels?

More like 15.

- I'll snap my ankles.

- No, you can do it.


Maybe it's better without?

You need something,

or you'll look naked.

- Like this?

- Yes.

You're gorgeous, you're a goddess.

Mom, how much did it cost?

You can't go around

with a raggedy dress.

I understand but...

Nice things cost money.

I don't know if I feel up to it.

- Why am I meeting him here?

- He couldn't find our house.

Let them burst with envy!

- Hi, are you Gina?

- Yes.

I watched you grow up.

I heard you'll be starring on TV!


I'd love for you to come visit me.

- I'm in a hurry...

- In hurry every day...

Monday, Tuesday, always hurrying.

Life is so short,

over in the blink of an eye.

We lose the best things.

Give me a kiss.

- Don't ruin your make-up!

- Relax, mom.

Be careful!

Oh my God...

I'm off.

Wait! Gina!

Wait! Leave your coat on!

- You'll catch a cold.

- Okay, fine.

- Wait!

- Now what? No, mom.

It'll protect you.

- Bye, mom.

- Bye.


Sorry you had to walk,

your mom insisted we meet here.

- I know my way around this area...

- What?

Actually, I don't live far from here

but my neighborhood's

inside of the beltway.

So, what's that supposed to mean?

- We're just slightly outside of it.

- Right...

Sorry, I didn't mean it that way.

Is the temperature okay?


Is that your school, miss?

What is it?

- Arts high school.

- Oh, I see.

I had some friends there,

I went to a technical high school...

but I dropped out.

You don't need a diploma

to strike it rich in life.

It's not what you do

but how you do it.

You need the right insight

at the right moment.

And the courage to jump in.

Courage is essential.

Don't you agree, miss?

With all the space out there,

why here?


F***ing hell!

Sorry miss, the car is new so...

I'm a bit uptight.


I'll be right back.

Why the heck are your sheep

grazing in the street?

In the street?

- What a mess, I have to go to work!

- How cute!


- You call this normal behavior?

- Normal...

Okay, if it's normal for you...

Put them over there

where there's space.


I have to say this area is pretty odd.

Stuff like this

doesn't happen in the city.

Excuse me, what are you staring at?

Stop it.

Sorry, I didn't mean to bother you.

I'm in a particularly good mood today,

I keep smiling at everyone,

don't mind me.

It's my first day of work, that's why.

- Really?

- Yes.

A stroke of f***ing luck...

I mean of luck.

It just happened out of the blue.

I never expected it.
