- [Ella] Kevin.


- Yeah?

- What are you doing?

- I've been doing some research,

hear me out here.

See this is what I think,

see how you can see the

Empire State building there?

Do you notice how you can

see all of those buildings

all the way in the distance?

You know up Madison

Avenue there?

- Yeah?

- Okay, well I feel

like since I can see all

of those buildings, not just

the Empire State building,

but like literally all of them

all the way in the distance

from the sidewalk up,

there's only one

conclusion I can make.

- And that would be?

- That the earth is flat.

- Oh Jesus!

- I'm serious I mean there

should be some sort of curvature

there, some drop-off.

It only makes sense,

scientifically and...

- Zip it.

Kevin, I don't care

what you think,

where the Madison

Avenue has a curve,

the buildings go sideways,

flat, forwards, whatever,

the earth is round,

it's always been round.

Check your information.

- Okay wait, look way down

there in the distance,

the Freedom Tower, the former

site of the Twin Towers.

Anyways, scientists have

confirmed that no matter

where the sun was in

the sky during the day,

the towers would never cast

a shadow on each other,

it was just magical.

- You know what?

Before you open up your mouth,

make sure you confirm

with me the topic

of your conversation, okay?

- I just...

- It's not negotiable.

Can we get outta here?

And can we also find somebody

else to hang out with?

Kevin is a complete basket-case,

I mean don't you know

any like really cool hot

soho guys who would crash

a party or something?

- Yeah, I'll get right on

that, find hot gay guys.

- Are you listening to me

or are you just whisking

me away with your words?

- Both.

- What are you doing?

- What?

- What are you doing?

- What are you reading?

- This is an encyclopedia

of the serial killers

of New York State.

- Oh God, what did I

do to deserve this?

I'm hanging out with a reject

and the walking dead over here.

- If I had any respect for you,

I would take offense

to that, skank.

- Skank? Skank?

I'm not the one whose mom

named me Tiffani with an "I",

I mean shouldn't you

be stripping somewhere

in maybe some

black lingerie or...

- Ella, drop it.

You're just lonely and horny.

Why don't you go hook up

with Kevin over there?

You're both recently single.

- Ewww, Kevin?

All right.

All right Kevin boy,

here we are.

It looks like you two

with me this weekend,

and I'll tell you what

we're not gonna do,

we're not gonna dick

around here anymore,

so why don't you try to keep up.

(eerie piano music)

(train bustling)


- Let's just get outta here.

- Let's just get outta where?

- The city, just

for a couple days.

- Yes! And go where?

- Upstate.

My friend gave me this

good connect for an.

I-stay bed and breakfast

house in Swamp Hollow.

- Swamp Hollow?

No fucking way, that town

keeps popping up in this book

all the time.

That place is ripe with
