Yeah but this time...

It's your old man.

I didn't kill my

f***ing dad man.

When was the last time

you saw your father alive.

The last time that

I talked to my dad

Is when he picked me up

from here yesterday morning.

Man, you know that.

You saw him.

You know this is the

third time this month

I've had to do this for you.

The third time this month.

TWINK:
I didn't do...

You didn't do anything?

What are you talking about?

You're found in a motel

room with a dead man.

He's covered in blood.

He's been buggered up

the ass until he's...

TWINK:
Listen to me.

- Yeah, yeah.

You didn't do anything.

Well, I've made an

appointment for you

With Father Sullivan

at Saint Augustine.

He's young.

Maybe he'll be able

to relate to you.

I don't know why you

think I did whatever it

Is that you think that I did!

Son, I experimented

when I was young, too.

But this is serious.

A dead man in a motel room?

I mean, Andrew,

what is going on?

Or is it Twink now?

Is that it?

Twink?

Yes.

Yes.

Please, just let me talk to you.

(ANGRILY) I can't

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*** you!

Damn it.

DETECTIVE STEGEL: Wait

a second, wait a second.

He dropped you off at work?

TWINK:
Yeah, I went

to work for the day.

On the street corner?

At a pizza... I work at

a pizza and pop shop.

WALNUT:
16 years old,

skin like butter,

Eyes as blue as

daddy's Corvette.

He'll suck your dick

till your nose bleeds.

What do you say?

How much?

You are beautiful,

you know that?

You're trying to rob me?

[Pipe clangs]

Ow!

Sh*t.

Piece of sh*t!

F***!

Ow!

F***ing pervert!

[Yells]

That kid's 16.

They're going to lock

you up for that sh*t.

Please!

Please, I have a wife and kids.

Is that so?

You know how many

dads go missing

Around here motherf***er?

[Beating continues]

TWINK:
Walnut.

Walnut, that's enough!

F***ing f*ggot!

F***ing a**hole, man!

Yeah.

How much did you get?

What?

From his wallet.

Uh, sh*t.

Yeah?

After all I've

done for you, huh?

Who killed your father then?

You won't believe

me if I tell you.

DETECTIVE STEGEL: I'm all ears.

TWINK:
He must have left

the door unlocked for me.

He always does.

DETECTIVE STEGEL (MOCKING

ANNOUNCEMENT):
Bulletin!

We have a warrant

out for a Santa

Clause and an Easter Bunny.

Are you f***ing serious?

Can you describe this for me?

Are you going to make fun of

me or can I actually do it?

I think we're on two

different levels.

I'm going to let you go.

I'm going to let you go.

OK?

Because this is going no where.

So, uh, get the f*** out.

Let's go.

Get the f*** out.

Seriously?

Get the f*** out of here

before I change my mind.

TWINK:
All right!

But sweetheart, don't go far.

Because I'm going to

keep my eye on your ass.

OFFICER:
Father John Sullivan?

Yes, thank you, officer.

I can take it from here.

Hello, Andrew.

I'm Father John Sullivan.

And I know you've had a rough go

lately what with your father...

My dad called me Andrew.

It's Twink.

FATHER SULLIVAN:
Huh,

a difficult one, eh?

Well, Father John

does love a challenge.

Maybe we got off

on the wrong foot.

Just think of me

as a big brother.

Big brother Father

John Sullivan.

Have you seen your dad burn

to death in front of you?

Huh?

No.

But I've read several grizzly

accounts of the crucifixion,

And it's very disturbing stuff.

Stay the f*** away

from me Jesus freak.

A gift.

This is progress.

Thank you.

It was in my dad's mouth

when he burned to death.

FATHER O'FLYNN:
John?

FATHER SULLIVAN:
Yes, Father?

Did you speak to the boy?

I did briefly.

But he didn't seem

interested in the help

The Church was offering.

Shame.

A child losing a father

is a terrible tragedy.

Terrible!

Yes.

He gave me something.

I don't know what

significance it has.

A tie?

Does this have

some meaning to you?

It's him!

Who, Father?

The Fuchman.

The Fuchman is back.

Fuchman?

There was a boy many
