Hey Donny, watch your eyes, man.

Yo, Ben. You coming

to lunch or what?

- No, I got to take my kid to the

doctor. - Okay. See you later.

Hey, he's over here!

Stupid son of a b*tch!

What are you standing there for?

You hear me you crazy bastard?

Come over here and help us!

- What's the matter with you? - Leave

him alone! Let's take care of Ben!

Yeah, let's take care of Ben.

Take his visor off.

Give me a hand here.

You realize Ben nearly

died because of you?

A man goes up in flames and you

stand there like a f*ggot.

I'm not a f*ggot.

- What?

- I'm not a f*ggot.

It just covered.

It covered him up.

He wasn't evil

but it covered him up.

What are you talking about?

I covered Ben!

No. The cover of flame.

The cover of the flame.

You know you're crazy.

I always said you were crazy.

You stay away from me.

You think I was afraid?

You think I'm crazy?

- What are you talking about?

- I would have helped him.

You're a sicko.

Chief Daily, Line 91.

Chief Daily, pick up 91.

Hey, Donny.

Donny, wait a minute.

Hey, let's go have a beer, man.

No thanks, uh, I got to get home.

Oh well, so do I. Let's go

have a beer anyway. Come on.

- I can't. My mother's sick.

- Okay. But wait a minute, now listen.

I don't want you to go home

thinking that was your fault, man,

because I mean things can happen and a guy

can freeze in a situation like that, you know.

- Hey, that's right.

- Yeah.

That's right.

He's the one that's sick.

- He's the f*ggot, not me. - Yeah,

you're probably right about that.

You know that's the

way those people are.

- They call you names and they're the crazy ones.

- He's a lightweight. Don't worry about it.

But that's the way it happened.

You're right, Bobby.

- Hey, I froze. I couldn't do anything.

- Hey, you know, speaking of freezing,

I'm gonna go find a nice warm barstool.

Why don't you come along, huh?

Nah, I can't.

Okay. Alright.

I'll see you tomorrow. Okay?

Okay. I'll see you tomorrow.

(That's right. Go home. Go home

like a good boy. Mother's waiting.)

Mother, I'm home.

I'll have your tea

ready in a minute.

(No, mother, don't.)

I made you camomile tea since you've

been trouble sleeping lately.

There. It's nice and hot.

Oh You're already asleep.

Don't you want your tea?

I made your tea.


Mother, are you all right?

What am I going to do now?

It's not true.

She's just asleep.

Last asleep.

She's gonna wake up soon.

No! Come on!

(Now you're free. You're not afraid.

You don't have to be afraid.)

Night Surrender")

(music continuous)

(music continuous)

(She's still dead.)

(She was evil.)

(She must be purified.)

(She taught you to use the flame, she wants

you to purify her for everlasting life.)

(She wants the flame.)

(It's your turn.)

(It's your turn. You can do it.)

(You're the master

of the flame now.)

(You'll get her. Now.)

(It's up to you. You're the master.)

(That's right.)

Donald, come here.

- No, Mother.

- You're a bad boy.

- You're evil and you must be punished.

- No, Mother, please don't.

I promise I'll be good.

Come here I said.

No Mother, please, no!

Your father let you do things

like that but he's gone now.

I'll burn the evil out of you.


Hey, Donny. How ya doing, man?

It's Bobby.


You all right?

Why shouldn't I be all right?

Well, you know I thought you might

still be a little upset about Ben.

- Ben?

- Yeah.

Ben at work.

You know, the fire and everything.

Oh yeah.

Yeah, no, I'm all right.


Hey listen, man, I thought you might want to

meet me for a cup of coffee before work.


What do you mean "why"? I thought you

might want to talk or something.


That's nice of you but, uh,

I'm not going in today.

I have a

couple of things I

have to take care of.

Will you tell'em I won't be in?

Yeah, sure I'll tell them.

Okay. Well, look,

I'll see you tomorrow then, huh?


(You'll get all of them now.)

(That's right. It's up to you.

You're the master.)

We're closed.

Could I just get something simple?

Something that's already arranged.

Something that wouldn't

be too much trouble.

I'm sorry, we're closed.

I need a present for my mother.

She's sick.

Just something nice.

It doesn't have to

be too much trouble.

- Your mother?

- Yeah, she's sick, you know.

She loves flowers.

Just something simple. Please.

Okay, something simple.

I think I've got just what you want.

Oh, that's beautiful.

I'm sure mother will love that.

Well, I guess that will do it.

That's $4.50 please.

Thank you.

I hope your mother feels better.

Oh yeah, thanks.

Mother will feel fine.

Just fine.

Good night.

Good night.

- She's a b*tch!

- Yeah, you're right, man.

I ought to know.

Hey, hold it!

Hey, I'd wait for her.

Hey baby, I'll walk you home.

Now she looks back, come on.

Maybe you should try and make her.
