Make you go away, go away

Where it's sunny

In July

Romance another day

Go away where it's sunny

The AR-15 used in

the incident was legally registered.

The governor called this mass shooting

a horrific but ultimately

unpreventable tragedy.

Up next, the Weekend Movie Minute

with C.J. Doons.

Just look at those goddamn monkeys.

Why don't we turn this off, huh?

The way they shoved this country

right down the f***in' stinker.

Keep your gigantic monkey dick

out of my good p*ssy.


Did she have any last words?



No, no, no, no

Never forget

No, no, no, no

Never forget it

Are you reading the Elsewhere Saga?


Yeah, I'm reading King of the Hidden Dark.

- Book two. Yeah.

- Yeah.

I read those a while ago.

- My God.

- Yeah.

I'm... at the bit...

It's like right before, um,

the Battle of the...

The Tanhauser Gate.

- Yeah, yeah, yeah.

- I know. Yeah.

- It's... really intense.

- God.

I just... Yeah.

It's so intense. I'm just, like,

the whole time I feel like...

I know.

Archers, to me!

- Yeah.

- Yes!

- It's so good.

- It's so f***ing good.


It's crazy.

You know her real father

is actually the war mage.


Ca...? Captain Borgo?

He's Lady Kieran's real father, yeah.

- F***.

- When I read that, I was like,

What the f***?

- Yeah.

- It's coming up. You'll see.

Thank you.

Clues were all there,

if you think about it, but...

Have a good night.


The f***?


Various prescription medications,

a laptop computer

and then the silverware in here.

Anything else?

Not-Not that I can see.

But, um...

the silver was my grandma's.

Were they painkillers?

What? Sorry.

Uh, the medications.

Uh, no, it was, um...


and, um, Lexapro.

Uh, you try one of those, um...

location apps?

Yeah, I tried that,

but the laptop's turned off.

Oh, well, they'll probably wipe it anyway,

unless they're morons.

- Huh.

- You have a hide-a-key?

One of those little fake rock thingies?

I don't, no.



you leave that unlocked when you go out?

No, not usually. No.

But you did today.

I... I don't remember.

I mean, I...

- I'm just saying that...

- I think I locked it.

Wasn't a forced entry though.


So, uh...

what should I do now?

Uh, about what?

I mean...

do you call me or...?

Oh. Yeah.

If anything is recovered,

someone will be in contact.

Your case number's on that form,

if you have renter's insurance.


you're gonna look, right?

Miss, uh,

we will do everything we're able to.

In the meantime, I suggest

you pay a little closer attention

to your home security.

Don't give 'em an opening.


Okay, thank you.


I'm not bothering you, am I?

It's the... violation, man.

The stuff...

that's replaceable.


Well, the silver's not, but...

The thing that really hurts, you know,

is the f***ing violation.

I mean, these people...

were inside my house.

I'm sorry.

All right.

Rays from some stars are thousands

of years old before they reach your eyes.

Human bodies are made of dust

and gases from inside of stars.

The universe is 14 billion years old.

No one knows what came before.

No one knows how big

the universe actually is.


It could be infinite.

- Jesus.

- Mom!

- I'm sorry.

- She's fine. Don't worry about it.

She's just, you know, five

and not used to talking about death yet.

I'm so sorry.

A f***ed-up thing happened to you.

You're allowed to be upset.

Patient died today.

I was in the room.


She was special, huh?


She sucked.

- Huh.

- Oh, yeah.

She was a real shithead.

But it doesn't matter.

They'll roll her out...

and she'll become smoke.



My grandma Sally, that was her silver

that they stole, you know?


She literally breathed life into people

who'd been exploded.

- She was a war nurse.

- Yeah, I remember.

Spent her retirement bringing dinner

to folks with cancer.

And then she had a stroke...

and she was just... just carbon too.

And now I'm the only one

who remembers any of that,

and pretty soon...

I'll just be carbon.

So none of it matters.

It does matter. She did happen, so...

The way people treat each other

is just...

They're disgusting. They're disgusting.

The-The f***ing...


- Do you know what I mean?

- Yeah, but, Ruthie, you gotta stop.

- F***ing taking. Mine, mine.

- Ruthie. Ruthie, Ruthie.

- F*** you.

- Ruthie, stop, stop, stop. Stop.

You're gonna make yourself sick.

You've got it better than a lot of people.

You know that, right?

But everyone...

is an a**hole.

No, not everyone.

- Yes, and d*ldos. Yes.

- That's not true.

- That is not true.

- F***-faces.


So what? So what?

It's just a sneeze. It's just, uh...

chemistry and math and...

Uh, so what?

Sweetie, come on.

Sometimes I feel like I'm...

like, underneath a whirlpool and...

Like I can't even breathe.

Like I'm just...

Internet date?

Uh, no, Ruthie's house got robbed.


That's terrible.

- Do you mind if I sleep here?

- Oh, my God, of course.

Dan will make up the couch.

Right, honey?


Aw. Is this me?


Is it a dragon?


I f***in' love it.

You've been shitting in my yard.

I have not.

Your dog.

Okay? I saw you.

There is a sign there.

It says no shitting.

- It says that?

- It's a...

It's a picture, okay?

It's like a little poop with a...

That's what it means.

Well, I didn't see it.

You shouldn't need a sign.

What is wrong with you?






- Yeah?

- Hi, sir.

My house got robbed yesterday.



Sneaky and...

I- I know what furtive is.

Yeah, this Dominican fella came around

here this morning with a push mower.

Son of b*tches.

That's-That's what I thought.

Told him I could take care of my lawn.

Good try.

I'll tell you somethin'.

Why don't you leave me your number?

Um, if I think of somethin'...


Uh, what is it?

Oh, it's just some regular yogurt

you can sip on.

I'm sorry that happened,

but I don't know anything to tell you.

Yeah, okay.

Roll that

Four. Get some!

E- Excuse me.

Put that f***er on

your motherfucking shoulder

I said I was sorry.

You said, uh, fine.

The implication being that I meant...

Okay, never mind. Never mind.

- Don't...

- Hey!

Wait up.

Look, that's not me.

Leaving a BM in your yard?

That-That's not who I am.

I- I was embarrassed.

Sometimes I just get so deep

in my thoughts, you know?

Like, deep, and I don't even notice

what Kevin's doing.

Oh, uh...

forget it.

You can hit me.

- What?

- One strike.

To balance the energy between us.

I won't defend myself.


I think, uh...

So, um, why are you here?

My house got robbed.



- Did you call the authorities?

- Yeah.


I don't know. It seemed like they

couldn't really do anything, so...

I'm just asking around, you know,

seeing if anyone saw anyone or...

What did they take?


They... They took my computer.

And they... they took my grandma's silver,
