Or is it Twink now?

Is that it?

Twink?

Yes.

Yes.

Please, just let me talk to you.

cover for you anymore.

OK?

I just... I can't.

TWINK:
Well, if Mom was

here she would have.

Well, if your mother was

here, what would she have done?

I don't know.

More than you ever did.

God.

The smartest thing your mother

ever did was get away from you.

Listen, Andrew I'm sorry.

Get...

You don't know anything.

(YELLING)You don't

know anything!

Don't pretend that

you do because you

Don't know anything about me.

You don't know

anything about me!

F*ck you!

Damn it.

a second, wait a second.

He dropped you off at work?

On the street corner?

At a pizza... I work at
