I had

this image of you...

inside of me,

like a part of me.

You planned

this whole thing.

We make our own choices.

We pay our own prices.

5 years is a long time.

Where's the f***ing money?

- All part of the business.

- All part of the business.

- You made a choice once.

- What choice?

I want out.

Like a part of me.

Hold the elevator.

Thanks.

Yeah. I looked over

everything, sir,

and I don't think there

should be any problems.

Yes, sir. I ordered the vanity,

and I looked at the tub.

I'm pretty sure

we could rout it out.

Yeah.

Yeah. I'll start everything

first thing tomorrow.

Yeah.

Thanks again for this

opportunity, Mr Bianchinni.

Yeah.

Hi. My name's Violet.

We sort of met on the elevator.

- I'm Corky.

- Corky.

Well, I heard you

working in here,

and I was wondering

if you'd like a cup of coffee.

Sure.

Come on in.

- Just give me a second.

- All right.

So, what happened to Rajeev?

He went back home

to India or someplace,

but I think he'll be back.

So, it's just a

temporary situation for you?

Yeah. Pretty much.

You know, one day at a time.

Hmm. I guessed you were

straight black.

- Good guess. Thanks.

- My pleasure.

To be perfectly honest,

I did have an ulterior motive.

I was wondering if I might

ask you a little favour.

- Favour?

- Yeah.

I'm kind of a night person,

and I was wondering if you

might wait a little bit

before you start

using the power tools.

- Uh, sorry.

- Oh, no, it's not your fault.

It's just the walls here

are so terribly thin.

Really?

It's like you're

in the same room.

If it's too much

trouble, I understand.

No. It's no trouble at all.

I got a lot of stuff to do here.

You doing all the work yourself?

- Mmm.

- That is so amazing.

I am so in awe of people

who can fix things.

My dad was like that.

We never had anything new.

Whenever anything was broken,

he would just open it up,

tinker with it

a little bit and fix it.

His hands were magic.

I'll bet your car

is 20 years old.

- Truck.

- Truck? Of course.

- '63 Chevy.

- I knew it.

Well, I guess I should be going.

You can drop the cup off

at any time.

Thanks.

My pleasure.

Well, well.

It's been a long time, Cork.

5 years, 2 months, and 16 days.

- How you doing, Sue?

- Like sh*t.

Well, now that we're all caught

up, can I buy you a drink?

Thanks.

Welcome home.

- So, did you get the job yet?

- Yeah.

Some plumbing,

painting, and sh*t.

I mean a j-o-b, a real job.

Nope. Not for me, Sue.

I'm just here to get laid.

- Hi.

- Hello.

Hey, Jesse,

what's happening here?

- Wait. I know you.

- I don't think so.

I didn't know you were out.

When you get tired of

Cagney and Lacey, find me.

# Nice and slow,

night and day

#When you stop to think

it just gets in the way

#And there's not

a single soul among us... #

Yeah.

Hey, Mr Bianchinni.

Yeah, everything's

going just fine.

Yeah. I got the tub drain

all cleaned out.

What apartment?

Oh, no.

Sh*t. I didn't know

he would call you.

You must think

I'm a total nuisance.

Not exactly.

Sorry, I'd usually call Rajeev,

but I didn't know what to do,

- so I called Mr Bianchinni.

- He said you lost something?

Yeah. Come on in.

I was doing the dishes, and

just as I pulled the stopper,

my earring fell in.

That's why I got upset.

It's one of my favourites.

You got a pot or a bucket?

Did you find it?

Oh, my God. I can't believe it.

I can't thank you enough.

You have to let me

pay you something.

- No.

- No?

I told Bianchinni

I'd do it. I did it.

Well, if you won't take money,

how about a drink?

You can't work all night.

All right.

- One drink.

- What would you like?

- Beer.

- Beer. Of course.

Sit down.

- Thanks.

- You seem uncomfortable.

- Do I make you nervous, Corky?

- No.

- Thirsty, maybe.

- Curious, maybe.

That's funny.

I'm feeling a little bit

curious myself.

That's a great tattoo.

Beautiful labarus.

Are you surprised

I know what it is?

Maybe.

I have a tattoo.

Would you like to see it?

A woman in upstate New York

did it for me.

Do you like it?

Took her all day to do it.

She promised

it wouldn't hurt, but...

it was sore

for a long time after.

I couldn't even touch it.

But now I love

the way it feels.

Here.

Touch it.

- What are you doing?

- Isn't it obvious?

I'm trying to seduce you.

- Why?

- Because I want to.

I've wanted to ever since

I saw you in the elevator.

I know you don't believe me,

but I can prove it to you.

You can't believe

what you'd see?

Can you believe... what you feel?

I've been thinking

about you all day.

You planned this whole thing.

You dropped that earring down

the sink on purpose, didn't you?

If I say yes,

will you take your hand away?

- No.

- Yes.

Please, Corky. Please.

Kiss me.

Oh, f***!

Violet! Vi, are you home?

Yeah, I'm right here, Cea.

What's this?

What the f*** is this?

I didn't expect...

What the f*** is...

Corky, this is Caesar.

Caesar... Corky.

I thought...

F***ing dark in here.

Corky's doing some work

for Mr Bianchinni.

Oh, yeah, yeah. Right.

Don mentioned that to me.

Uh... Im sorry.

Hi. Welcome to the family.

So, uh, you're working

with Rajeev, right?

No. Rajeev's in India.

- She's doing the work herself.

- No sh*t.

Bianchinni hired you. You

must be good with your hands.

- He's a good friend.

- That's what Violet says.

Family, really.

- So, when did you get out?
