- Hey, is this the bus from DC?

- Yeah.

I'm looking for my sister.

- Do you have a passenger list?

- No list.

Now get off the bus.

Start cleaning.

- Now.

- Hi.

Hold... hold on a sec.

Do you think I could use your phone

after you're done?

I'd... I'd pay you,

but I don't have my...

- I've lost my wallet.

- Yeah.



Guy Lombardo...

It's the craziest

When you noodle

with a doodlin' song...

Can I use your cell phone?

Little softer

Perry Como

Even softer


Say you love me

With a doodlin' song

B, C, D, what you

doodle-dee-do to me...

F*** you, you piece of sh*t.

Don't talk to me, then.

I can't hear you.

You're f***in' breaking up.

Hello? Hello?

F***in' A, man.

- Hi.

- Hi. What do you want?

Can I use your phone?


Do you have a free

call plan or pay-by-minute?

I don't know. I guess I...

- S-So what?

- Well, can I use your phone?

Turn that sh*t down!

I'm sorry, do I know you?

Why would you think that...

Jack, if you don't turn down

that motherfucking music,

I swear to God

I'm gonna come in there...

Damn, spaz. Chill.

You need a hand with that?

You want some?


Do you need to use a phone?

Yeah. Thank you.

- Hold on, I'll get mine for you.

- Thanks.

What's the number?

Oh, I can do that after this stops.

No, it's cool.

What's the number?

Shoot, wait.

- 6... no, 6-2...

- How's that?

- Hello?

- Where are you?

At home.

Didn't you get my message?

- No, I lost my phone.

- Again?

Diane, what are you looking for?

This should be easy to remember.

I mean, if you want.

Oh, shoot.

I think I should go.

Put you back together

Put you back together

Put you back together

Put you back together...

Hey, I looked all over for you.

Where'd you go?

- To vomit.

To throw up.

All right.

See? Smell my breath.

I believe you!


You want a sip?


Give me your wrist.

I like you.


I like you.

I've gotta go to the bathroom.

Oh, I'm sorry.


No, I don't... I don't

want you to do that.

- But you're bleeding.

- No, I...

I ca... I've got it under control.

- You want some water?

- No.

Do you have a tampon for...

no, I mean do you have

a quarter that I can have?



I'm just gonna wait

outside for you.

All right.

What? Oh, sh*t!


How are you feeling?

You wanna go?

Ma... maybe we can

just sit down now?

Wanna go upstairs?

So, I guess your aunt's

gonna, like, freak?

Yeah, I don't know.

She's cool.

So, how are you gonna get home?

I don't know.

Do you know how to get home?

- Yea...

- I have a Metro card if you want it.



I'm cool from the subway.


See you later today?

- Yeah, totally.

- Okay.

Okay, I'll let you go.

- Call me.

- I will.

Looking from a window above

It's like a story of love

Can you hear me?

Came back only yesterday

Moving further away

Want you near me

All I needed

was the love you gave

All I needed

for another day

And all I ever knew

Only you

Sometimes when I think

of your name

And it's only a game...

Oh, my goodness.

You... you came from nowhere.

You're okay?

Are you okay?

I'm going to call

an ambulance, okay?

Hold on. She's okay.

I'm sorry, you'll have

to take another cab.

No, man, she's standing.

She doesn't need an ambulance.

She'll be fine.

Besides, it was her fault, man.

I saw the whole thing.

She doesn't have

health insurance.

She's just gonna wind up getting a huge

hospital bill with a f***ing ambulance.

Give her 20 bucks.

She'll be okay.

Are you... are you okay?

Diane? Is that you?

Jesus Christ.

- Where the hell have you been?

- I'm peeing.

Do you know how much trouble

you're in, young lady?

I'm peeing. Go away.

Your brother used

to wear a helmet.

You can't ground me!

You're not my mother!

While you're here

for the rest of the week,

I can do whatever I want.

No, it's just another

six days of this hell.

Fine! Glad you came to visit.

Let's see if you ever come back.

Does it hurt?

No, it's just a scratch.


Hey, do you like sushi?

I don't know.

It's good.

It's good with ketchup.

Try it.

Do you like it?

I didn't like it either at first.

Do you wanna spit it out?

So, do you wanna see my room?

Yeah, sure.

Here, we can bring these.

Hold on, I wanna

show you something.

I've... this...

I've... I've never played this
