Ah, good evening.

I was just taking a little break.

It's been a busy night.

Lots of new arrivals.

I call them the arriving departed.


Well, back to work.

Eh, what the hell.

One more for the road.

Just a dash.

Adds a little spine.

Long life.

Ohh, better!

Ahh, the doctor will see you now.


Uhh, ugly!

Man, are you ugly.

Well, we all know it isn't

what a person looks like.

It's what's inside that counts.


Ehh, death by natural causes.

Natural causes, natural causes.

More natural causes.

I hate natural causes!

Give me a big old stab wound

to poke around in, then I'm happy.

Ahh, here we are.

Body bags.

See, if it's murder or suicide

or a nasty accident,

they put 'em in these bags.

This one was found

on a stretch of lonely highway,

miles from the nearest town

on a pitch-black night.

Also in the news, another gruesome

murder in Haddonfield today.

The body of a young woman

was discovered buried

in the bottom of a trash bin

behind a shopping mall.

Police Chief, Ardith Robinson

of the Haddonfield PD

gave a statement

to reporters this afternoon

after the discovery of"...

Police believe the woman to be

another victim of a serial killer

responsible for a series

of ritualized slayings

in the southland.

The body of the woman

was found by hikers--

I'd be scared shitless working

all alone in a place like this.

Eh, I can take care of myself.

Besides, you're the one who has

to drive back to an empty apartment.

- Ooooh.

- Thanks a lot.

You don't mind

picking me up in the morning?

- What time?

- Seven.


This'll be the last time

I ask you for a ride, I promise.

They said my car will be

out of the shop by tomorrow.

I'll buy breakfast.


See ya.

Can I help ya?

I'm Anne.


The new girl.

Oh, yeah, right,

come on in.

- Hi.

- Hey.

- Sorry I'm late.

- No biggie.

Oh, wow, this is almost identical

to the gas station I worked last month,

except that was a little bit smaller.

Well, why don't I give you

the, uh, the grand tour.

Uh, that's the cash register.

You just punch in the pump number

and amount, right?

Yeah, you got it.

That's the credit card machine.

No sweat.

And listen, when you get

their, uh, signatures,

make sure you get the license

plate number, all right?

- Right.

- It's important.

Um, the TV gets

maybe three channels.

Actually, I'll probably just

do some studying.

Um, the cigarette prices

are posted outside.

- Saw it.

- Okay, good.

Is that the bathroom?

Well, actually, we, uh, prefer

to call that the employee's lounge.

Yeah, great.

Let's see-- oh, oh,

do I ring out the register

when the morning shift

comes in?

Nah, just, you know,

uh, he'll take care of that.

Why don't you just collect

the cash and make change.

- Okay.

- Yep-- oh, you know what?

This door locks automatically

if you leave the booth.

- So, uh--

- Keys?

Right, keys, yeah, um--

God, I don't know

where the hell I left them.

Yeah, here they are.

The round one,

um, that's for the booth

and the square one

works everything else, okay?

Got it.

- Public restrooms.

- Yeah.

Um... yeah, I guess

that's about it.

You know, I feel a little bit guilty.

Leaving you out here

all by yourself.

- Eh, I'll be okay.

- Did you hear the news tonight?

- Yeah, it's horrible.

- Yeah.

- Hmm.

- Hey, you know what?

If you got a problem,

why don't you,

um, just give me a call, okay?

Hey, thank you.

- Sure, no problem.

- Will do.


Uh, that's it, then.

I'm outta here.

Have a good night.

- See ya later.

- You got it.

Pack of Coronados.

Two seventy-five.

Ls there anything else?

Uh, what you readin'?

It's for school.

A college girl, huh?

Yeah, well, I never got to go

to college myself, you know?

Yeah, I got some bourbon

out in the car.

Maybe I can get you

to come out of that booth.

Maybe I'll see ya around.



Hi, I need to fill her up.

Super unleaded.

- Number 12?

- Uh, yeah.

Haven't seen you

around here before.

It's my first night-- huh.

Uh, signature

and license, please.

Are you from Haddonfield?

Born and raised.


What are you studying?

Um, psychology.

Final exams next week.

Gotta pull my average up.

- You go to the university?

- Uh-huh.

Well, do you ever feel like,

uh, kicking back?

You know, just hanging out

someplace after class?

- Sometimes.

- Well, you gotta try the Oak Lounge.

It's, uh, down Seventh Street

by the freeway.

They got a really good band there

on weekends.

Hey, maybe if I run into you some time,

I'll play you a game of pool.

I'm no good at pool.

All the better.

Well, see ya.



Hey, you forgot your card!






I need the key to the restroom.

I really have to go

to the restroom.

Oh, uh... the key's in the booth.

I have to get the other set.

Uh, I'll be right back.


Ugh, thank God!


Oh, you pump,

I gotta go to the john.

I'm gonna take care of this.

Whoo-hoo, honey,

hiya, sweetheart!

Listen, give me,

uh, oh, $20.

Of that

superduper irregular

on, uh, pump number

niner there, okay?

You're a little glum tonight, hon,

what's wrong?

You oughtta be out partyin'.

Pretty little thing

like you, huh?

Say, uh, I need a key to get

in that little boy's room there?

Uh, you do.

Listen, could you do me a favor?

Sure, name it.

There's a man,

he's in the men's restroom.
