Come here,

you little f*cking bastard!

Get up!

Come here, you mother f*cker!

You little mother f*cker!

I am going to f*cking kill you!

Oh f*ck.

Oh my God!

Oh my God!

Oh my God! Bobbie!

Oh shit! F*cking no!

Oh my God!

Oh God baby,

what happened to you?

I'm gonna get my Uncle Mel,

he used to be a medic.

Got guys through combat

and shit.

You're going to be okay, Kid.

Your old uncle Mel is here.

Just kick back.

I don't have any morphine...

but this is some

of the best smack around.

If this don't kill the pain...

nothing will.

- You're a doctor, Melvin?

- Yeah.

Yeah, I'm a doctor shooting

you up with heroin.

That's right.

No kid, I'm just a...

I'm just a junkie

and a real good thief.

They kind of go together.

That's it, pal.

Beginning of story.

End of story.

There you go, ba-da-bing!

What I wouldn't give

for veins like that.

And don't you ever call me

Melvin again, you little shit.

Thanks, Mel.

Hey, you keep a real nice house,

ever hear of a trash can?

Okay so, here is the deal.

What are you doing? Hey.

- Put that down.

- Chill out, man.

Chill out? Put it f*cking down.

Are you f*cking joking?

Bobbie, you look like shit.

The cops are after ya'.

I mean you're hotter than a freshly

f*cked fox in a forest fire.


Now I iced your nasty

little ass down.

I stopped most of your

internal bleeding.

I put ice packs on your

tiny little head

so maybe the brain damage

won't be too bad.

Gave you my best dope.

And I have spent two f*ckin'

days in a shit hole

I would not send my

worst enemy into.


Making sure you don't

go into a coma.


Listen to me when I tell you.

If you leave here,

they are going to bust you.

And if you shoot any more speed

in the next f*cking month,

your brain will pop

like a f*ckin' balloon.

- I got to go out for speed, man.

- Just listen to me, man.

If you walk out the front door

of this f*cking building...

or if you do any more Meth,

I will personally break every

f*ckin' bone in your body

that already ain't broken.

And I'll kick the shit out

of Danny for letting you do it.

- Do we understand each other?

- Yikes.


We cool? Good.

All right.

So, princess?

Can I trust you to keep these

two idiots out of trouble?

- Right on, brother.

- Right on, baby.


See you later.

Bye, Mel.

I'll f*cking kick your ass

you little bitch!

F*cking give me your shit,

you little f*cking cunt!

Bobbie, I got to piss.

Bobbie, I got to piss.

Damn, Bobbie.

So how do you like

my ride, Bobbie?

- It's not bad.

- Not bad?

I betcha' never even been in

a Cadillac before,

let alone the full glory of a top of

the line tricked out Coupe de Ville.

Anybody who says crime don't

pay only knows guys like you.

F*ck you, mother f*cker.

I'm not some little kid.

I just made seven-eight hundred

bucks in one night.

Yeah, in f*cking quarters.

Probably got a hernia

draggin' them home.

- Shit son.

- Hey, I ain't your son,

and I got the f*cking quarters home.

You damn near got killed

doing it, right?

I got this stealing thing wired.

I don't need shit from you.

- How old are you?

- Old enough.

Why don't you save the tough guy routine

for people you might actually scare.

I'm not f*cking putting you down.

I'm trying to make a point.

I don't know how old you are,

but I'm going to bet you money

you got a driver's license

that says you're 18 or 19.

And I'll give you 10 to 1

that it's off by 2 or 3 years.

You're doing dope all day.

Every f*cking day and you're

stealing with both hands.

Here's my point.

You think you're a thief.

Eddie Little

Eddie Little (August 25, 1954 – May 20, 2003) was a widely acclaimed American author. He wrote Another Day in Paradise, later made into a film of the same name directed by Larry Clark. Little was also the author of "Outlaw LA" an ongoing article published in LA Weekly. His writings were a rugged portrayal of coming of age in the underbelly of society and heroin addiction. His books were largely autobiographical, and although his supporting characters tended to be fictional, the narrators were almost parallel with himself. Little died of a heart attack in a Los Angeles motel room, at the age of 48. He was survived by a daughter and two siblings. more…
