Okay, so you've heard of,

Dick Wagner, right?

Yeah, sure.

Yeah, but did you know he was in

a group from Michigan...

- before then called "The Bossmen"?

- Yeah, no, I love them.

Sort of pseudo-Beatles?

I've got original 45's of "Take a Look"

and "Here's Congratulations".

Oh, yeah? Well...

I'm guessing you don't have the single

that's got "You're the Girl"...

and "Wait and See" on it?

Nobody's got that. That's the only Record

I'm missing from my 60's garage bands.

I've got the Plagues...

The Sheffields, The Five Emprees,

The Rationals from Detroit...

You know what? It just so happens

I was in Detroit last week...

doing a piece of paper, and who do you

think I bumped into at a record shop?

- Who'd you run into, Phil?

- Well, I ran into Pete Woodman...

- the Bossmen's drummer.

- No sh*t.

And he's got extra copies

of all that stuff.

- Danny?

- Can you get me one?

It's past lunch time.

Take your break.

Oh, sh*t!

I was supposed

to meet Denise for lunch.

See you later, man.


I've got to hear

"You're The Girl", okay?

- Get me that record?

- You got it, man.

Hey, Danny.

Hey, Sara.

I'm sorry, I'm kinda in a hurry.

I was just wondering

are you moving?

No, why?

I saw your sofa in the alley

and I thought...

Hi. I'm looking for a patient.


William Dornboss?

Drug rehab.

- What are you doing?

- Polishing.

- Where did you get all this stuff?

- You know, around the building, mostly.

So what happened, Danny?

So what happened what?

"What happened what?" What happened

with you and Denise, what happened?

Well, who said anything happened?


it's written all over your face.

I can smell it from over here.

I can taste it...

she dumped you, man.

I've seen that look a thousand times.

Hell, I've seen that look

in the mirror.

Oh, man, f*** it, you know?

She had no taste. She would gather up

her clothes in a rage and throw them on.

She'd look like a Wal-Mart

exploded right near her.

She did you a favor, man.

I don't know why you liked her.

Well, she was pretty...


"Nice." What are you gonna do

with "nice", Danny?

What can you do with "nice"?

And she was pretty, but you know what?

She was too pretty.

Pretty things always have a tragic end

one of the laws of nature.

It only serves to make them more

beautiful. It would have ended badly.

- Sometimes you scare me.

- The truth is scary.

I gotta go. I gotta...

When are you getting out

of here?

Two days.

Hey, listen, Danny.

Before you go, you should check out

the psycho ward down the hall.

It's very entertaining. They've got

this guy there, he's f***ed.

He's got this black hood over his head

and he's all strapped up.

It's very creepy.

- Take care of yourself.

- Enjoy.

You're really not supposed to be

in here.

I'm a relative.

She doesn't have any relatives

that's why she's in here.

I'm sorry. I...

I was just curious.

I have a friend here.

- What, rehab?

- Yeah.

Yeah, I can guess who.

Would you ask Mister Dornboss

to return the knobs...

and the locks to the doors?

It really is something

of a nuisance...

and in some cases hazardous

to the patients.

Now, will you excuse us?

No, I'll leave. I was just...

wondering... I mean she...

she looks healthy.

She doesn't look sick.

Well, there's really nothing wrong

with her except she's asleep.

She has a condition known as

"Kleine-Levin Syndrome"...

accompanied by cataplexy.

- Are you a medical student?

- No, Art.

Oh, thank God.

Have you ever heard

of narcolepsy?

Yeah, that's where

you fall asleep a lot.

Yeah, well, in Miss Baxter's case,
