(gentle music)

Today

Just like any

other day

We wake up

to new beginnings

Today

Just like any

other day

I look at you

and suddenly

nothing's new

(Jenny) No, you did not give my room

to some bum while I was at school.

No, it's just unbelievable.

Is your nest that empty?

Are you just that pathetic?

Jenny, darling, I've asked you

not to speak to me that way!

Oh.

There's people in this world

that need our help...

What is that?

(mom) We should try to help

them as much as we can.

You've got to be

f*cking kidding me?!

Mom!

I'm really sorry,

you can have your room back.

Yeah, yeah.

No, no, no!

Mom, she's using my hairbrush!

Oh my God and now

you're naked.

You're naked. Okay.

Mom, she's using

my hairbrush.

(rebellious music)

Vultures cry that

warning song

That weary song

The moon is high

The road is long

You know we're going to have to burn

everything in that room now, right?

She's probably got lice and herpes

and God only knows what else.

Never give up

Never back down

Cause high above,

there ain't no sound

Never give up

Never back down

It's more than

surviving now

(man) God did not put us on

this earth to endure suffering.

He put us on this earth,

he put us here

to receive salvation

from our Lord Jesus Christ!

Because a great

distress is coming...

Never give up

Never back down

There's fire but

there ain't no sound

Never give up

Never back down

It's more than

surviving now

What you doing here, girl

Don't tell me, that spacey rich

bitch finally got tired of you?

Claire was sweet.

Her prodigal daughter

returned. Jenny.

What did I tell you about

using words like prodigal?

Keep talkin' like that

and you can take a one way bus

right back to that small town

you ran away from.

Shut up.

Damn.

How is it you manage to find

all the wealthy do-gooders

this city has to offer

and I meet all the

freaks and assholes?

I told you to stop seeing that mother

f*cker you're always crashing with.

Watch your mouth, girl.

Or you're gonna start

scaring society ladies away.

Oh whatever 'cause

when we're famous,

we're going to be like them.

Oh that's right, when we have our

apartment on the Upper West Side.

Oh and we paint

the walls yellow.

And always have purple flowers

in the kitchen.

Oh and a welcome mat so our guests

know they got a place to be.

But they got to take

their shoes off

'cause you know we don't want

no dirt in our place.

Amen.

(giggles)

Here.

Just tell me when we have

enough for a place.

That's it?

You gotta at least leave me

enough to get a loosey.

I thought you were quitting.

I'll quit when we have a place.

Deal.

Yo I'm goin' fishing

tonight. You in?

Yeah.

Maybe I'll meet the prince who will

sweep me off my feet for once.

Oh girl, you let me know, I'm

gonna be your chambermaid.

Oh whatever.

F*ck, Frank's here.

(upbeat music)

(snorts)

(toilet flushes)

All right, who's your target?

What about him?

Do you see that

dude's fingernails?

He is a closet psycho.

What about him?

Are you kidding me? No.

Too old.

Too Mafia.

Too ghetto.

Wait, wait, wait him.

He's perfect.

- Good luck.

- Don't need it.

Oh.

Oh my God, I'm so sorry.

Can I just like... oh you're wet.

Just a little, yeah.

I'm sorry. I'm such a klutz.

It's okay. It's okay.

Do you need a drink?

Yes.

Yes, I need a drink.

(chuckles)

What are you having?

Um, vodka soda?

Excuse me. Vodka soda please.

And two shots.

So, what's your name, now that

I've put your hands all over you?

Tom.

Tom?

Hailey.

Hi, Hailey. It's

nice to meet you.

Nice to meet you.
