Okay, get in the truck.

You two related?

What's in the box?

Put it down.

Pack it up!

Where's the other one?


The other ticket.

I only have the two.

- Step back.

- Don't do this, please.

Get back from the line now!

Two tickets, two people!

I'm all they have left!

- Do it now!

- - I'll take them!

I'll take them.

- Osenchuk. Right?

- Hi!

This is William.

You're William. Hello,

William. He's three.

This is his baby brother, Kris.

You're Thomas Oates's wife,



- Yeah.

- Get in the truck! Let's go!

Janet. Janet.

We have to do this.




Okay. William, come on.

Come on. Let's go

for a truck ride.

Don't ever let them come back.

Come on.

Here we go.

Let us finish with

a verse from Luke.

"There was a certain rich man,

which was clothed in purple

and fine linen,

and fared sumptuously every day.

And there was a certain beggar

named Lazarus,

which was laid at his gate

full of sores.

And it came to pass

that the beggar died...

and was carried by the angels

into Abraham's bosom.

The rich man also died

and was buried.

And in hell he lift up his eyes,

and being in torments,

and seeth Abraham afar off,

and Lazarus in his bosom. "

Let us commend Olivia Osenchuk

to the ground.

Earth to earth. Ashes

to ashes. Dust to dust.


Have you seen Will?



Are you up there?

"Za world reveals itself

to those who go searching. "

Who said that?

I did.

I meant who said that quote.

Werner Herzog, of course.

This your secret spot?


Since we were kids.

Baba didn't notice?

Actually, sometimes

she'd join in.

Kris has got a thing about weed.

Kris has got a thing

about a lot of things.

And, uh, semi-naked thing,

that just for kicks?

Yeah, well, got to stay

fresh and clean.

Don't want to start

stinking up the service.

You know what else

might help with that?

A shower.

I'm kidding.

You smell great.

I do smell great.

Tell your friends.

Thank you for coming.

Be right in.

What's up?


I know this is a hard day

to go over all this stuff,

but with you and Brit

on your way out of town...

New York will still be

there when this is done.

It's, uh, better

we deal with this now.

We just appreciate you helping out on

such a short notice. Will and I both, uh...

We both appreciate it.

Yeah, of course.

She was a good woman.

All right.

Contents declared...

familial possessions,

all belonging to one

Olivia Osenchuk.

All to be received by the primary

benefactor... Kristopher Thomas Oates.


You sign here and they're yours.

I assume the items have,

uh, sentimental value.

Just a few photos,

mementos, a videotape.

Short straw kind of thing, huh?

Hey, listen.

Death is just a... It's just

a part of life, you know?

A stroke's a stroke.

You can't control these

things. Best not to try.

At least she didn't suffer.


- Why is that so important?

- Hey. Not now, Will.

I'll walk you out.


It was a pretty service.

You guys both looked so sharp.

She would have liked that.



What's going on

in that head of yours?

We were so close.

I know.

Baba was a special lady.

No. I mean we were so close.

You and me.

So close to gettin' away

from all this.

It's just life.

It's nothing we can't handle.

We'll just deal with the odds and ends

and make sure your brother's all right...

That's the part

that exhausts me.

Making sure my brother's all

right. That could take years.

Hey, Will.

How you doing?

Just looking for a VCR so

I can play Baba's videotape.

So, it's Baba's relief bottle.
