This guy on the radio went

prattling on about

some second-hand

Freudian sh*t about how

adultery is the last

rebellious act left

to people in these

structured modern times.

You've got to get up, get out

and do something, man.

Yeah, I told him

I get these migraines.

Man, it's like a

phone in my head that

keeps ringing. You know?

Just ringing.

It's stress.

Ringing, ringing.

It builds up, man.

And nobody even answers.

Did you feel an

earthquake last night?



No I ain't feel nothing.

Well, the TV

said there was a 4.4,

and it hit at exactly 4:04 a.m.

That's creepy.

How did you not

feel anything though?

I don't know.

How did you feel it?

Man, your bed shakes.

N*gger, my bed

shakes every night.

Get the f*** out of here man.


Man, what you know

about that man?

Man I'm hitting switches on

b*tches like I was

fixed with hydraulics

up and down like

a roller coaster.

Oh Tupac, huh?

You old hologram man singing.

Oh man, sh*t.

Now tell me again about

these little sex toys

you designed, man.

I didn't design

no sex toys, man.

Oh come on, man.

You know the toys,

the little dildo sh*t.

No, no, no, no.

I said there was

interest from a sex toy

manufacturer in an

ad that I designed.

It was just an ad, that's all,

but it could have been

for anything really.

Oh, what'd you call it?

Space Invader.

Yeah, new sci-fi movie.

Hey little cute ass Shelby girl

looking over here, man.

I'm going to take 10.

Man this n*gger a b*tch.

Hey, what's up?


How's it going?

Is that Douglas?

So, what's the deal?

Nothing I

just wanted to see you.

Well, I'll be home in a

couple of hours.

Baby -


How much?

Enough, all right?

Baby -

Yes, baby?

Could you imagine your

life without me?

That's a loaded question.

Baby -

Yes sweetie?

I'm pregnant.


You have insurance?


Maybe I should get you

a hotel room.


You know to thin the blood,

champagne and hot tub.

It's a poor woman's miscarriage.

Look, it's just not

the right time. Okay?

Look at me.

Look at me.

I love you. Okay?


The important thing is

that when it happens,

however it happens, it's

got to be the right time.

You've got to be ready.

I mean things have

to fall into place.

I mean come on, we

had an understsanding

about this.

I know.

We cool?

Yeah, we're cool.

You all right?


F***, I've got to run back.

So I'll see you tonight?

The postwar

generation found solace

in the austere arms

of existentialism.

It is the choice that

gives value to the act.

Seemed to be a grand

idea at the time.

For as Dostoevsky brilliantly

put it,.

Now Jean-Paul Sartre

on the other hand,

declared that a person

cannot define himself

by disappointed dreams,

miscarried hopes

or vain expectations.

So when this

disillusioned commie who

saw human nature in

all its shades of gray

was asked, "Who is

the hero of our time?"

His answer was simple, "It

is the man on the run."



You awake?

Baby -


I want it.

How bad do you want it?

I want... it.

Ah, no Sierrah come on.

We've already been through this.

Why not? Why

not give it a try?

Why not go through with it?

Go through with it?


You say it

like it's a good thing.

I mean come on Varnie.

It's not like you're

getting any younger.

I think it's time to start -

Time for what?

Time for me to give up on myself

and bury my f***ing dreams?


I'm just saying.

No, that's what

you're saying though.

It's like, "This guy ain't

getting anywhere with his sh*t.

He needs to strap up,

put on a tie and get
