Please, please, I just need...


Ilya, please talk to me.


Ilya, I have to talk to you

about something really important.

Please, can we go outside?

Ilya, please, don't make me

talk about this in the fucking library.


What can I do for you to forgive me?

Ilya, what can I do

for you to forgive me?


Would you forgive me if I die?



Excuse me, miss,

would you spare a quarter, please?

Excuse me, sir,

could you spare a quarter, please?

Fifty cents?

Would you spare fifty cents, miss?


Hi, um... do you have any razor blades?


Ilya dearest,

I need you to know

that I love you, baby,

and I need you to know how sorry I am,


I never wanted to die.

I don't know

what will become of you now,

and I won't ever know

if you'll really forgive me.

I'll always love you, even in death,

and I'm so sorry that things

had to come to this.

Love forever, Harley.

Goddamn you, you...

- How much?

- $600...

I paid 600 each for Madison Square.


Goddamn the fucking slash

double fucking...

But they were... Yeah, this is the...

this is the first fuckin' album.

This is the best album.

This is the best album of his.

Listen to this.

Yeah, I'm gonna look up...

I'll show you, I'll show you.


I'll show you the fucking best.

- You'll see it, as it's going on.

- Ilya.

Yeah, one second, Skully, one second.

And you'll see it,

but you have to read the word

as you hear the...



I got the razor blades, okay.

I don't think you're

taking me serious about this.

I'm sorry, okay?

But I am about to die right now,

and I really want you to be there.

If you don't want to watch, just,

please, just,

at least read this after I die.



Stop, please, Ilya.

I've been listening to you

for a long time

talk about how you're going to do this,

and I'm getting

really fucking tired of it,

so why don't you go fucking do it. Okay?

Go fucking do it, okay?

Fucking cunt.

F*ck her, man. F*ck her.

Why would you want to get with some

douchebag, black metal, fucking dirt bomb?

Honestly, my mother

killed herself in suicide, okay?

On some serious tip.

That how you want to be,

on the floor, dead?


I mean, why would you

want to get with some fucking

piece of shit that treats you like shit?

I need you.

- Yeah?

- Yeah.

You need me? 'Cause you care about me?

Yes, of course, 'cause I care about you.

Why would I be here

in the freezing cold,

getting ready to go

buy you some E and J?

I know you want that.

Promise you won't leave,

and I'll go get us some E and J.

- Yeah?

- Yeah.

You can pay for it?

Yeah. I'm going to steal it.

I ain't gonna pay for it.

- All right, whatever works.

- All right.

You better fucking be back here though.

Don't disappear on me.

- I'll be here, all right.

- I'll be right back.




Everyone told me

that you were a fucking whore,

that you're a sucking scumbag,

that you're a fucking whore.

Evan, Jimmy, Dark Mark,

even Skully told me.

Everyone told me that you're

doing this shit again.

If you love me,

you would have killed yourself by now.

You hear me?

If you love me you would have

killed yourself by now.

You know how much you're killing me?

You know? Do you?

So why are you still here?

You want me to do it, Ilya?

- Yes.

- Yeah?

Yes. Do it in front of me.

I want to see. I want to see you do it.

- I want to see you do it.

- I'll do it right now, okay?

Please. Please, please,

please, please, please.

Yo, watch this shit, what this, watch.


- Yo, yo, yo.

- She's got a razor blade.
