I always wanted to be

in the movies

When I was little I thought for sure

Or maybe just beautiful...

Beautiful and rich,

like the women on TV

Yeah, I had a lot of dreams

And I guess you can

call me a real romantic

Because I truly believe that

one day... they'll come true

So I dream about it for hours

As the years went by,

I learnt to stop sharing this with people

They said I was dreaming

But back then, I believed

it whole heartily

So whenever I was down,

I would just escape into my mind

To my other live, where

I was someone else

It made me happy to think

that all these people...

just didn't know yet

who I was gonna be

But 1 day they'll all see

I heard that Marilyn Monroe

was discovered in a soda shop

And I thought for sure,

it could be like that

So I started growing up

real young...

And I always secretly looking

for who is gonna discover me?

Was it this guy?

Or maybe this one?

You never knew

But even if they couldn't take me

all the way... like Marilyn

They would somehow

believe in me just enough

They would see me for what I could

be, and think I was beautiful

Like a diamond in the rough

They'll take me away...

To my new life

And my new world

Where everything

would be different

Yeah, I lived that way

for long long time

And my head dreaming

like that

It was nice

By the time I met

you all...


all I want is a beer

How are you doing?

- Great

Anyone sitting here?


Madam our services

are for patrons only

Give me a beer

whatever cheapest

So what it is like,

a gay place or what?


Hey, whatever, man

Can I buy you that drink?

I got my own money

I'll have a pitcher, whatever

she's having

Look, I'm not gay alright?

Well, it makes sense

So what are you doing

here then?

My truck broke down, I'm a...

I got a pressure cleaning


What's pressure cleaning?

You know steam clean?

Upholstery, carpets,

you know, shit like that

So I'm just getting out of the rain

My name is Selby

You owe me change!


I'm out of here

Oh, are you sure?

Get your fucking hands off

me! you dumb dyke...

I'm not gonna f*ck you

for fucking beer ok

Stop wasting your fucking


I wasn't trying to f*ck


I just wanna talk to you

I thought that if I bought you

some beer maybe you'll talk to me

I just trying to have one

decent night out, you know..

Just talk to someone before

I've to go back to my parents closet

I'm sorry

You don't have to stay

So are you really a

steam cleaner?

No, I'm not

No man, actually it's

a real good job...

Pressure cleaning

You want some?

Oh come on don't

let me down now

You ready?

to do this

Shit, I don't fucking

trust you

You ready?

You do suck

You're just a sore winner

Yeah, winner though,


Oh, man that's all

my cast

You spilled some good

shit there

I'm gonna lick it up

like a dog

We need 2 more

What's that bullshit?

What time is it?

The bar is closed

Then why don't you take

that stick out of your ass...

Now would be a good time,

don't you think huh?

Now that the bar's closed

What you do for is that?

We had a good time


Yeah, I know, it was fun

I'm sorry, I called you

dumb dyke

I don't care

And thanks for the drinks

No... No Problem.

So see you around ok

Do you wanna stay with


I didn't mean... you know

you don't have to do anything

Shit I know

F*ck it

Yeah? My truck's

broken down

Ok, car's over here,

come here, this way

All I wanted was a beer

But the day I met Selby I'd spent most of the

afternoon sitting in the rain, about to kill myself

So you can understand
