Yeah, keep going.

It's like three houses down,

and it's the...

Yeah, blue house

on the right, there.

- This one, here?

- Yeah. Yeah.

Hey, it's only 15 bucks, man,

don't worry about it.

We got to go back to the bus,

man, I gotta get my wallet.

Can you just take me back to

the bus station? I can't...

No, no, I can't do that.

I can't...

I can't take you all the way back there,

dude. Just don't worry about the 15 bucks.

I can't go, I got other fares, I

can't go all the way back there.

I understand that.

It's just...

There's no way that I can tell you

exactly what seat I was sitting in.

Do you understand? It was

probably like seven back.

Seven from the...

It was like the middle.

It's like the middle of the bus!

I don't even...

I, I don't know.

Peter Latang.


How often do these kind of

things turn up? 'Cause I...

I just want to get... okay.

- Hi, Kristin.

- Hi, Peter, how are you?

Come on in.

Sorry about the walk.

Oh, it's okay.

Sorry about this shit hole,

this place is...

- This is not a shit hole.

- Well.

Believe me, I've seen

plenty of those.

Can I get something for you,

some coffee...

No, I'm fine. You know,

I got to run, so.

My phone's already on

the photo app.

So I'm just going to go through and

take some photos if that's okay.

- Yeah, that's great.

- Okay, great!

- That's great.

- Are these hardwoods,

are they all through the house?

Yeah, I think...

That's great! You know,

that's gonna really...

That would definitely up it.

And if you want

you can do an estate sale.

Oh, that must be a lot more work for you.

You don't need that.

I really don't mind, you know. It usually

helps with the cost of the cleaning.

Oh, you're in this shot so,

just, uh, look handsome.


Uh, yeah, honestly,

the sooner we get this done,

the better.

I'd really like to be kinda

over with it, you know, like...

- Yeah, definitely.

- Yeah.

Um, all right, well,

how long are you in town for?

Just the night. I'm going back

tomorrow morning.

Oh, bummer!

If you could just sign here?


And... yeah.

Yeah, that's great.

All right, well, thank you. And I will

call you if I have any questions.

How about that?

Yeah! Okay,

do you have my number?


I have whatever number

you called me with.

Oh, yeah. Okay, all right.

Well, thank you so much, Peter.

Well, Kristin, thank you.

It was really...

A pleasure to meet you.

You don't remember me, do you?


I'm tan Megan's youngest sister!

Ah, all right.


- Yeah.

- Okay!

I thought you'd remember me,

but you just totally didn't!

- No.

- Okay.

I'm super gay.

I'm just gonna...

I'm just gonna go, and, uh...

Yeah, ah, ah,

ah, ah, I'll just...

I'll just see you

later then, hopefully.

Okay. All right. Kristin...

- Yeah, you skipped one there.

- Yeah, yeah.

All right, all right, uh...

All right.

- Okay, bye.

- Bye.

- Bye.

- Great to see you. Bye.

Bye, Kristin.



Hey, listen, Kenny. I really don't

want to waste your time, man.

I just... I'm in a real pinch.

I lost my wallet

right when I got here.

And I'm kind of fucked!

And I was wondering if you

could possibly, uh, wire up

a couple, you know, like, you

know, 100 bucks or something?

Are you serious?

Oh, I hate to see you like super

polite to me for a second, bro.

I'm don't know why.

I'm sorry, I'm sorry.

That's okay.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. What is it?

What is it? What's up?

Uh... would that be possible?

Um... uh...


No, today's not a good day.

I don't think so.

Here's the thing, man, I got

a bunch of stuff happening.
