(BREATHING HEAVILY)

(BABY CRYING)

# Blue is where I want to be

# When I'm down I'm in the sea

# Looking up at monsters in the clouds

# Red's the colour when you're dead

# If you find me gone, I'm just in bed

# Reading up on fairy tales instead

(GURGLES)

# Now I know so many things

# Got feet and I got wings

# To carry me back home

# To my house that's made of bricks

# Well, that's just such a fix

# To ever hold me down

# White is what I was to start

# Broken by my open heart

# Dum-de-dee-dee

# Dee-dee, dum-de-dum #

(SKUNK) Hi, Rick.

Hi, Skunk.

That looks good.

Oh, um...

Yeah, you have to do

the water first... Um...

And then the suds

and then the water again,

um, to like...

rinse it.

Is it hard?

Oh, it's... it's really hard.

But I... I like it...

I like it when something's clean

'cause you, you see it dirty

and then you clean it,

and then it's... (STUTTERS)...clean

and you wash it

and it's clean

and then it's done. (CHUCKLES)

Cool. I'll see you later, yeah?

See you.

Hi, Mr Oswald.

Hello, darling.

(RICK GRUNTS) Ah!

No! No!

(RICK SCREAMS)

Rick.

Are you okay, Rick?

(DOOR OPENS)

Dave! Dave!

Skunk, go home!

Go back into your house.

(SKUNK) It was Mr Oswald.

Oh, my God. Oh, my...

Dave!

My baby. My...

(SKUNK) Jed.

- Can I come with you?

Can I come in the same car?

- Would that be okay, if I come with him?

- I'm afraid not.

You're more than welcome to...

(MR BUCKLEY) We'll, um,

drive down behind.

(JED) I don't get it.

Why is Rick the one they arrest?

Shut up! You're too fat to sing.

Shut up.

(SNIFFING)

(UPBEAT MUSIC PLAYING ON TV)

What the f*ck is this?

I didn't even know what it was!

Oh, don't give me that bullshit.

Where did you get it?

- I stole it.

- Bullshit. Stole it from who?

- I ain't...

- Huh? I taught...

Didn't I teach you?

- What?

Give me his name.

Give me his f*cking name!

Right. (MUTTERS) Here you...

(DR MORTIMER)

Your daughter has not been raped.

(BOB) What the f*ck

(DR MORTIMER) Your daughter's a virgin,

Mr Oswald.

She's never had intercourse.

I told you and I didn't want you

All right, you don't have to be afraid.
