Deep breath.


I need you

to be honest with me.

You're show signs of cirrhosis. Your

glands are swollen. You're jaundiced.

Your body's telling me you're malnourished

but you say you're eating like a horse.

One of you is lying.

I knew this was a bad idea.

You may be developing some type of anemia.

I won't know until I run some tests.


What are the symptoms of anemia?

Feeling better?

Yes, a little bit.

You just fell right over.

Thanks again for helping me.

How old are you?


They say that human

body stops growing at age 25.


You're in the last stages

of something.

Like a...


turning into a butterfly.

I don't think so.

Want a blowpop?


A blowpop.

It's like a sucker but it's got gum inside.

Oh, yeah, sure.

Cherry, grape, sour apple or watermelon?

- Grape.

- One dollar.



Do you have any...


- Yeah.

- Reds, spirits, slims or malts.


Good choice.

Do you smoke?

And he called me a twant.

Then he wrecked my car and

now the fucker owes me money

and he's trying to say we're square because

I made him sleep on the couch for a week.

- You guys live together?

- Not any more.

I kicked him out after he started

to use my place to sell meth.

- How much does he owe you?

- $400.

Maybe you should just let it go?

You won't have to deal with it any more.

Maybe you're right.

You shouldn't let anyone

talk to you like that.

So what do you do beside

sell candy and cigarettes?

I... I bartend.

Catering, shit like that.

What do you do?

- Security.

- Day shift?


Sounds lonely.

I'm used to it.

You like working nights?

Yeah... yeah.

Sure about that?

I don't really have a choice.

Why not?

I have a skin disorder,


- I can't go in the sun.

- What do you mean?

I burn really easily.

Well, you are on the pasty side.

No, it's not like that.


The sunlight did that to you?

My God!

It's like you're a vampire.


Who is this?



From the other night.

Yeah, sorry, I didn't

recognize the number.

I'm glad you called.

- You are?

- I am.

What are you doing?

Watching a talk show about

a guy with two heads.

It's disgusting.

I can call back.

No... are you kidding?

What are you doing tonight?


naa... nothing.

There's a great band playing at Space Land.

Want to go?

- Yeah. What time?

- They go on at ten.

I'll pick you up.

- Yeah, it sounds great.

- OK.

Where do you live?

43 State Street.

And a half?

Yeah... It's a... It's a...

It's a basement unit.

- Hello?

- Hi, I'm outside.

- You're early.

- I know. I'm sorry.

I can wait if

you're not ready.

Or we could have a

drink before the show.

All I have is whiskey.

Sounds great.

- Hi.

- Hi.

- I never have people over, so...

- It's great.

This is you, right?


God, you were so young.

I'll get the drinks.

You paint all these?


You're so talented.

- Yeah right.

- You are.

When I was little someone

told me that sometimes just

before the sun goes down,

it'll turn green...

for just a second.

I looked for it for so many years.

I never saw it.

So stupid.

No, it's real.

Yeah, right.

It is. It's called green flash.

It happens sometimes

right before the last part

of the sun disappears.

Caused by the same refraction effects

that make the red sunset.


Yes, it's rare, but it happens...

You just haven't seen it yet.

You ever see it?


Can I use your bathroom?

- Yes... it's just around the...

- I'll be right back.

Sorry the place is such a mess.


What just happened?
