It's Officer Eddy.

I'd like you

to come into the station.

Oh, is it about the house,

'cause I could...

Dwight, sweetheart,

I'll explain.


Just come with me.

I apologize for the mystery.

I don't mean to scare you.

You're not in any trouble.

Everything's fine.

You'll be fine.

But, honey, someone brought

this by our stoop,

and I just thought

you should be somewhere safe

when you found out...

With somebody.

He's going to be released...

...and I don't know

how much you...

They are missed.

It's an awful thing

he did to them.

I'm just gonna hold you here

for a little while...

Do you sell stamps?

I just want this

party over with.

Wade doesn't know.

Yeah, if you stop

talking out of your ass.

You putting him on your books?

Gonna shine on everyone

Come a little bit closer

You got to hear

those three little words

Oh-oh, oh-oh

Come a little bit closer now

No, she talks too much.

Yeah, I'm not used to it.

She talks shit

or she talks too much?

- What? Me too, man?

- Yeah.


Just let me piss.

I haven't done it alone

in ten years.

Hey, man.

You all right?


I got some shit lined up.

You might wanna wash your hands.

No, man.

I don't piss on my hands.

Hey, you want order

another beer?


I'll order some shit.

I hear that.

You motherfucker!

Come on, man.

What are you doing

in there? Beating off?

Yeah, we should've had

a hooker waiting.

Let's go.

The party's for you.


Let's go, brother.

Oh, f*ck.

Oh, f*ck!

This be the moment

I was waiting for

What's happening boy?

- Can't wait no more

- Moose



Bulletproof Moose

I care less about

the fortune and fame

Lay down my flow

when I'm doing...

Did you hurt Wade?


Wade hurt my parents.

I don't think he did.

Let's look

at the windy conditions.

Of course, with the

thunderstorms themselves,

the winds could be quite strong

and areas of fog are possible.

If you've been to the gas pump

in the last couple weeks,

you've probably felt

the stinging

of some of the fastest climbing

gas prices in years.

So where...

Small dogs and cats

should be kept in an enclosure

if left unattended, as coyotes,

oh, are able to jump...

Two, three, four, five.

One more time.

One, two, three,

four, five.

- Hey.

- Hey.

Got a late start.

Would you mind moving

the sprinklers into the bushes

- in, like, 20 minutes?

- Sure, yeah.

And then just turn it off in 15.

The girls did Shrinky Dinks last night.

Could you put them in the oven?

Ten minutes, 350, something like

that. It's on the box.

Thank you.

Bye, girls.

- Thank you.

- Bye.


Hey, Sam.

You have a good day.

Thank you so much.


I wish I had more time.

Got an asset inventory

that can't push.

Do you need money?


Did you get my letter?

I sent it after

I crossed the bridge.

- It was a postcard.

- No. When?

A couple days ago.

Well, postcards take more time.

Dwight, I'm not following.

I sent it on my way

to Deerfield.

I know he's out,

if that's why you're here.

The DOC sends a notification

and a restraining order.

Let's not...

I'm sorry I left.

I'm sorry, too.

With this busted sandwich.

I have had worse.

You need to put the registration

for the Bonneville in your name

if you still have it.

I have an extra set of keys

if you want them.

It's gone.

As far as the estate goes,

you're still owed $2,800.

There's still a box

of your things...

You can keep it all.

I don't want it, Dwight.

No. That's fine.

I'm not used to talking

this much.

That's what people do.

I know.

How's Delaware?

You knew?
