It's all or nothing!

Do or die!


You're crazy, man.

That was wild!

Max! Max!

Who's the best?

Sicko. You'd kill a pal

just to win.

I didn't kill anyone.


-You're a sore loser!


It turns me on when you bitch.

-It does?


It makes me hot.

Does it?

Come on!

In your dreams!


You rule!

Not bad, huh?


-Can we go?

-Theo, at half past, you know.

But it's boring!

I know, but I told you. In life...

I know, we can't always do...

what we want,

even if it's not fair.

Exactly. Anyway, I'm almost done.

Does she have to stay much longer?

I don't know.

How 'bout it?

Try a new record?

Talking to yourself?

Or did you bring your kid again?

I answered the gyprock.

It asked me for a joint.

If my insurance busts me

cause of you, you're out!

No sweat. I'm alone, it's safe.

-I'm watching you.


-I'm warning you.

-It's all good.

Can I sit in front?


Please? Pretty please? Come on!

O.K., but just for today.


I promise I won't tell Mom!

-Hope to die?

-Hope to die if I tell a lie!

Now buckle up.

Why do sick people get flowers?

Cause flowers are like life.

It helps them get better.

Then why do dead people get them?

To show we love them.

Flowers are like love.

Are they life or love?

Same thing.

-You have to water love or it wilts.

-You're a smart kid.


A heart attack?

Why didn't you call me?

We just got her stabilized.

How is she?

She's on morphine.

She's not strong enough to waken.

She's very fragile.

She's been waiting for months.

When will she be first in line?

Even then it can take a long time.

She can't stay like this.

How long?

A few days.

A few days.

No way! You have to do something.

Without a donor,

there's nothing I can do.

Is there anything I can do?

What can I do? Tell me.


Try praying.


No, look...

Try it.

Maybe someone somewhere

can save your wife.

She won't really die, will she?


She won't die.

We'll do anything to save her.

You won't let her die?

No, we won't let her die.

Cross your heart?

Cross my heart.

Hope to die?

If I tell a lie!

Promise me.

I promise.

Ready or not, here I come!



I'm going to find you!



We'll set sail on a big ship

And drop anchor

on a treasure island

Where those funny birds nest

That you see

In your dreams

Everything's fine, angel.

I'll take you home.

Hang on!



You snuck past security again?

I told you not to!

Theo, how are you, dude?

Check this out!

Cool, huh? Brand new!

Have fun.

Go play. Scat!

The news is bad, so be nice to me.


Nothing new, except a kidney.

Don't give up.

She's next.

The first heart, it's hers.

She's been waiting months.


It's a long weekend.

With luck some crazy driver

will ram a brick wall.

Sorry... So, Theo,

like my car?


Open the trunk.

Cool, huh?


Come on, with all the people

who die in hospital here,

there's gotta be a heart.

There are,

but procedure fucks things up.


O.K., but keep your mouth shut.

Why no organs?

Cause no one donates? No.

Cause doctors aren't paid for that.

Take a surgeon...

He gets $20,000

to cut you up into pieces.

But the doc who spends the night

keeping a coma victim alive,

he doesn't get a cent more.

There's no bonus.

We have organs, but no cash.

That's disgusting.

Expect me to take on

the system by myself?

No. All I can do

is place the organs I get.

I can't save the world.

What if I get a heart?

Yeah, right.

No, think about it.

In theory you could say, I dunno...
