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.
