I just remember, um...

the light through the crack under the door

and I remember asking my mom,

you know, can I come out now?

And then I smelled smoke so I,

you know, ran out to find her

And then I smelled smoke so I,

you know, ran out to find her

and then I heard this noise coming

from her bedroom like she was crying,

but also like there was

someone crying with her.

And, uh... you know, I was... oh, God,

I was only like five years old so,

of course, I started crying, too,

but I couldn't see anything.

I just started... just... just banging on

the glass and then my mom showed up

and she swung open the door and

she was standing there naked.

and she swung open the door and

she was standing there naked.

And all of a sudden I was up in the air and

her nails were just digging into my arms

and she was screaming at me and

she was screaming at me so loud.

And her eyes, God... her eyes were just...

just black.

I don't know

what to do. I'm scared.

Who else has seen them? No. How am I

supposed to know who posted them?

I don't even remember taking them. Yes, of

course. Of course I've been trying to reach him.

I've been trying to reach him all week. Yeah, I'm

sure. I know that he didn't post them, okay?

His phone must have been hacked or...

okay, do not tell me to chill out.

His phone must have been hacked or...

okay, do not tell me to chill out.

How would you feel if your naked pictures

got leaked all over the internet?

Yeah, that's your

answer for everything.

Besides, smoking that shit

makes me even more paranoid.

All I really need right now is something

to just help me forget about all of this.

- Jake?

- Hmm?

- Hey, Jake, honey, wake up.

- -What?

- Hannah's not here.

- What time is it?

It's eleven forty-five.

Okay, uh... okay, uh...

give me the phone.

No, sweetie. When I went into her

room to check on her I found this.

- What are they?

- They're pills. Does it matter? I mean, does it matter?

Well, of course they do. I mean,

it could be...

Adderall or Ritalin, you know, how they

sell these to their friends during finals

- for tests, I... I saw that on some...

- Are you really rationalizing this?

- for tests, I... I saw that on some...

- Are you really rationalizing this?

I'm not rationalizing anything. I... I just

think we need to think clearly about this.

- Sweetie, you know what would make me feel a lot better?

- -What?

Is if you'd just admit it, that you don't

know what to do about this. Neither of us do.

Come on.

It started with booze, then it's weed, and now it's pills.

Are you not worried? This is your

daughter we're talking about.

Aren't you worried? I'm worried.

Okay, you just woke me

up, all right? Give me a minute.

All right.

Well, how many times do we need to have this conversation?

We can't just assume the worst, all right?

We... we need to talk to her about this.

We can't just assume the worst, all right?

We... we need to talk to her about this.

- Talk to her about it?

- Yeah.

Yeah, because that worked so

well with her junkie mom.

Oh, come on. Anne, look.

No, you look.

Hannah's not an addict, she's self-medicating.

This goes deeper than drugs.

She needs real help and we're over our heads.

Hey, it's almost

six-forty. Let's get going.

Morning. You had us worried last night.

Twelve fifteen.

That's not what we agreed to.

Yeah, that wasn't my fault. Ashley's

sister was late to pick us up.

She had a date.

Must have been a hot date.

Must have been a hot date.

Goodbye! Love you, too.

Why do you even bother, Jake?

Force of habit.

What was her excuse this time?

Joey Curtis

George Curtis (April 9, 1925 – May 13, 2004) was a professional boxer, referee and business owner who was licensed to officiate bouts in Las Vegas, Nevada. Curtis, who had an undistinguished career as a boxer, lived in Las Vegas for thirty years. There, he established the Curtis Construction Company, which he owned until May 2003. As a boxing referee, Curtis was known for taking boxer's safety into consideration first. He refereed a number of world title fights, and he worked a number of non-title fights over the years. Curtis is best remembered, however, for two specific fights: On June 26, 1981, at Las Vegas, Lupe Pintor was defending his WBC world Bantamweight championship against Jovito Rengifo, who was attempting to become Peru's first world boxing champion. Rengifo was leading on all scorecards going into the seventh round, but he absorbed dangerous punches during the course of that round. Curtis stopped the fight, giving Pintor a seventh round technical knockout win. The fight's crowd, which in Las Vegas is filled usually with pro-Mexican fans, booed Curtis for his decision to stop the fight. On December 10, 1982, he was chosen to referee the WBA world Heavyweight championship bout between champion Mike Weaver and challenger Michael Dokes. Dokes had Weaver against the ropes and was landing a combination when Curtis stepped in and stopped the fight. Weaver had already suffered a knockdown about twenty seconds before, but many fans and critics felt that Curtis acted too quickly by stopping the bout after only 63 seconds of fighting. Neither a standing eight count nor a three knockdown rule was in effect. The WBA investigated the fight, and during the investigation, it was revealed that Curtis had been told by the Nevada Athletic Commission to be mindful of the condition of the fighters after the November 18 death of Duk Koo Kim as the result of a fight with Ray Mancini in Las Vegas on November 13. Fearful of another tragedy, Curtis stopped the fight to prevent Weaver from further punishment. On May 20, 1983, Dokes and Weaver held a rematch, with Dokes retaining the title with a fifteen-round draw. In June 2003, Curtis sold his company to a contractor whose license was revoked a month earlier for signing contracts and not finishing work, which resulted in complaints with the state board. Joey Curtis died after a sudden illness at Saint Rose Hospital in Las Vegas. more…
