It's almost 7:

Save those.

Save those.


Still hurts?

Yeah, and will soon.

I think a millimeter

from my lingual nerve.

Your lingual nerve?

My boob hurts.


I know.

What if I have cancer?

You do not have cancer.

Everyone says you're pretty.


I'm proud of it.

You don't count.

I'm just categorizing some CDs.


- Uh, yeah, the poetry ones.

- Cool.

- Do you like poetry?

- Yeah.

You know, it's like music

without music.

Oh, I love this.

- Any luck?

- Look what they have.

Do you guys have this

on cassette by any chance?

'Cause we don't have

a CD player in our car.

Oh, yeah, well,

we got a bargain box of tapes

around here someplace.

Um, I'll go look for it.


I don't know.

12 I think.

Anything good?


But... it'll sell.

Oh, sh*t, this is like 15.

Perry Mary better give me

a five apiece for this.

- 16.

- Oh!

My little Harry Houdini.

I guess he still has

that bargain bin

he was talking about.

I love you.

Now... wish me luck.

Good luck.

- Baby!

- Oh, my God.

I hate it when you do that.


I'm sorry.

How much did you get?

Perry Mary says nobody's bought

a CD in two weeks.

How much did you get?

What's up, bro?

Y'all got sh*t f***ed up

doing everything

the way y'all want to.

He cool.

What's up, Adam?

- Hey.

- Haven't seen you in a while.

Yeah, just laying low, bro.

- No crazy hustles?

- Not lately.

- How much you need?

- Six.

Uh, seven.

I can seven for the 60.

Thanks, man.


Waiting on the bus?


Still with the old girl?


Yeah, she's out there.

That sh*t been hot, man.

Half the block

got locked up Thursday.

I gotta get out this sh*t.

I gotta play

that stock market, man.

Know what they say...

Buy low.

Sell high.

You take it slow, Adam.

- Thanks, man.

- All right.

We're in business.

He said it's strong, so go easy.

He always says that.

I've got to have

your good loving

I've got to have

your good loving

I've got to have

your good loving

Your good, good loving

Without you

My life ain't no good,

oh, no

I'd be dead,

dead, dead, dead

Like a piece of wood,

oh, yeah

I'm no good,

good to myself

For you

or nobody else

You'd better believe me,

what I say

Don't keep my hanging on

Let me die today

I've got to have

your good loving

I've got to have

your good loving


I need a minute here, love.

I need your lighter.

Kind of in a pinch, honey.

Just slide it across the floor.

You want me to slide it

across the floor.

- Yes.

- Across this dirty, germ-infested...

- Yes.

- All right, hold on.

Women, right?

I'll help clean you.

See, there's more nerves

in the bottom of the human foot

than any other part of the body.

It stimulates

the Babinski Effect.

- Babinski?

- Babinski.

I still say b*obs

are much sensitiver.

But Gary didn't have b*obs.

So what I would do

is I would tie him up,

and then I would nail

a bunch of pins

to the bottom of his feet,

like a hundred of them,

and he'd never walk again.

- What's wrong?

- It's no use.

I'm sorry.

I just... I did too much sh*t.

- I could...

- No.

- I could...

- I know, I know.

I'm sorry.

Wax on, wax off.


I love his little karate outfit.

Oh, my God, amazing.

Two windows over.

Holy crackers.

I want that to be us one day.

Top left.


30 seconds, go.

Hi there.

Are you lonely tonight?

Do you need a little company?

Well, I'm a sexy,

horny college girl

looking to blow off

a little steam,

if you know what I mean.

So call Roxy at mailbox 721.


- How was that?

- It was good.

Let me do it again.
