Very, very important thing

because you always have

to be a good girl.

And you always have to be a

very, very, very good person.

Who is it?

I work here.

Someone scared me.

I had to hide.

I guess they're gone now.

Will you be nice to me?

I tried the doors, but

everything's locked.

I thought I might

have to sleep here.

You won't.

Thank you mister.


You're gonna get such a rush

you'll go right

down that stairs.

Oh yeah. Oh yeah.

We've all gotten fucked up

on that stuff, darling.

Oh butternut, we're

practically there.

What are you looking at?

I don't know.

Hey. Let's see some skin.

Do you know that it is illegal

to eat chicken with a

fork in Gainsburg?

Well... Gainsburg...

I'll tell you one

thing I do know.

A gentleman should keep

his eagerness in check.

What lying f*ck told you

I was a gentleman, huh?

Look, I need a lover

with a slow hand

like that old song.

For f*ck's sake, give

me a fucking break.

Would you please?

Just get down there.

There we go. Huh? Huh?

Fucking motherfucker.

F*ck your mother.

- What the....

- Motherfucker.

What did you just fucking say?

What did you just fucking say?

My mother?

No, please, please,

please don't hurt me.


No? Please.

Please don't hurt me.

Why don't you talk

shit now, huh?

Why don't you talk

about my mother now?

How about you get the

f*ck out of here,

you piece of shit, huh?

How about that?

F*ck you.

Nah, shit. F*ck.


Hey bitch, you forgot something!

Double tequila, a beer,

and the lady will have...

Um, bourbon.

Get your fucking

hands off of me!

Fucking crazy? Touch me again,

I'll tear your balls

off, motherfucker.

I swear to God I fucking will.

Ok, let's go, let's go.

F*ck you.

Fucking maniac.


I just do not know how

they get like that.

Sure you do.

I'm not feeling well.

I think I should go.

Fine. Back tomorrow at 7.

Are you okay?

Don't make it worse.

I won't.


Just don't involve yourself

in what doesn't

concern you, please.

You know, normally I wouldn't.

It's just,

I know that look.

I see it every day

as part of my work.

And I've caught myself

staring like them more often

than I liked to admit.

I might be able to help.

Or at least distract you.

Okay, but I'm not...

I should give you this, too.

I'm Walker.


It's good to meet you.

Yeah, likewise.

I should be going.

Would you like some company?

No. Not just now.

You won't humor me?

I've never humored

anyone in my life.

Ha. Humor me.

It's cozier here.

It's just more... it's a cozy vibe.


Yeah, I...

I really didn't

think you'd call.

Well, neither did I.

I don't normally accost

women on the street,

but you, you seemed pretty down.

Not a great night,

but I've had worse.

You going through a rough time?

Things have been interesting.

Mm-hm. Leave it at that.

I don't mean to pry.

It's a bad habit.

Big part of my job.

Are you a detective?

Social worker.

Yeah I find the people

with the most trouble

are usually the least

likely to talk about it.

What about you?

Loads of a trouble

and a complete unwillingness

to talk about it.


No, I mean, what do

you do for a living?

I'm a receptionist.


Very exciting.

I don't know.

A boring job might lead to

an incredible inner life.


People are complex.

Ah, I don't know

if I believe that.

I think people are a

lot less complicated

than they like to believe.

Ah, the reductionist school

of human psychology.


In real life, it comes down to

who gets to do and who

gets it done to them.

So, we're just animals.
