lying around to bail you out.

Well, I didn't ask

for you to bail me out.

No. Don't f*** around

with John Petty.

I'm not f***ing around with him.

He gave me a f***ing tip,

it didn't pay off.

Come on, man.

Leaving you ain't easy, girl.

Or I'll stay.

I'll stay until you get back.

What time do you get off?

Working a double.

Got to bring home the bacon

to fatten you up.

You, you little Skinny Minnie.

My Skinny Minnie.

with a baby.

Want to run away somewhere?

Don't change the subject.

I want to run away somewhere.

Let's do it.

- Keep your hands warm.

- OK.

Hey, thanks for coming by.

See you, Russ.

I have come here tonight

to stand with you,

to change America,

to restore its future,

to rise to our best ideals

and to elect Barack Obama

president of the United States.

I'm afraid we're about to lose

another Kennedy.

God bless him.

You want another?

No, I'm good.

No, Rodney was supposed

to meet me here half hour ago.

Oh, yeah, how is old Rodney?

He seems awfully quiet

last few times he was here.

Yeah, he stop-lossed again.

- He's going back next month.

- Ahh...

Those poor sons of guns. They're

holding them against their will.

They're gonna run them into

the ground, they're not careful.

Don't get me started.

Well, if he turns up,

you tell him I headed home

to see Lena?

- Sure.

- All right.

Oh, hey, I got this one.

Whoa, thanks, Dan.

Is, uh... Is John in?

I just, you know,

need to bend his ear.

Uh, he had someone

back there earlier,

but, uh, I think they might be gone.

- All right if I...

- Yeah.

If I have to come all the way

down here again, I swear to God,

I'll gut your f***ing ass, c*nt.

You hear me, Petty?

You better start following

through on your promises.

Oh, you know I can't control

some of those f***ers.

For 25 grand,

you'd better control them.

I ought to put a piece

of lead in your ass

- and take everything in here.

- John, you back here?

Oh, I'm sorry, should I

come back later or...?

No, it's OK.
