Thanks for coming in, Jack.

How you feeling?

Yeah, stupid question

I guess, all right, look.

What you're going through

is unimaginable,

but you're gonna have

to let me in a little bit

so I can do my job, all right?



Will you go on a date with me?


Why do you think I should

go on a date with you?

I think I'll erase that.

Once the Assyrians,

not the Persians...

Hey, mom.

Hey, baby.

How was school?



It's good.

Are you sure?

Yeah, I mean I guess they'll

have to meet eventually.


I'll tell Jack.

Okay. Bye.



How'd you like to go

out to dinner tonight?

Sounds great.

Remember that guy,

I've been telling you about?

The guy from work.

The bouncer?

No, he is a security officer.

He has...

He has a son about your age.

And, uh...

And they're gonna come

pick us up at 6:


And honey,

just don't call him

a bouncer, okay?


Would you look at me?

He is a security officer.

I got it.

You better

oh, and could you wear the

brown shirt with the buttons?

Yes, I can.

Thank you.


Hey, gorgeous.

How are you?

Good. I am good.

This is my son.

Hey, Jack. Tom.

Nice to meet you.

Nice to finally meet you.

That's my...

Mark, come on out.

My son mark.

She is Karen.

Hey. Nice to meet you.

Nice to meet you.

He's starting capital high

this week.

Maybe you two should hang out.

Yeah, sure.


Nice to meet you.


My tummy is rumbling.



I got the place.

What? Great.

Avenue. Come on, lets go.

Capital high. You like it?

It's all right.

He hates it.

Yeah, I heard it sucks.

Where'd you hear from?

I don't know, I just heard it.

So, what's your

favorite subject?


They have Chinese?


It is taught by real China man?

I mean she is from Philly...

Do you play anything, Jack?

I've never been

really good at music.

I play guitar,

should learn drums.

I could teach you.

Yeah, that'll be really cool.

Maybe start a band.

Yeah, I think I saw an

asteroids machine out back,

you wanna go play?

Yeah, that's a great idea.

Let me give you some...

Got a couple...

Mark has the money.

You just keep the change.

You have money on you, right?


This is going well, don't you think?


So, the asteroids are outside?


Ah, man, I just couldn't fucking

handle that shit any more.

Yeah, I feel that.

You smoke?



Aren't they gonna be able

to smell it on us?

They wouldn't notice if you

smoked it right in front of them.

They're in love, man.



So, where you from?


Yeah. I just moved here.

Where were you before?

All over. You know

we moved around a lot.

Why you just coming

to school now?

I don't know.

Paperwork, I guess.


Stay right there.

Some room over here for me?

Yeah, I think

I can squeeze you in.

You sure?

Mmm, yeah.

You're alright.

You want anymore?

No, man, I am fucking

high already.

F*ck it.

You wanna go back in?


You stoned?

So, are you just some kinda

Holden Caufield suburban tragedy?

I fucking hate that book.

Yeah, you will.

Oh, f*ck.

Hey, Jesus, hey,

we're right here.

Do you have to do

that in public?

We probably have 20

minutes until we left.

Well, we ran out of quarters.

Yeah, he sucks at asteroids.

Can I get you guys

a dessert menu?


So you guys clicked immediately?


We were into a lot

of the same stuff.

Like what?

Like music and stuff.

What's your favorite band?

I don't really

have a favorite band.

But I mean I...

We listen to a lot of like...

Nirvana and GG Allin.

Stuff like that.
