Police chief has authorized his officers

to use force if necessary.

It has been 8 days

since Perez first witnessed

the appearance of the

Virgin Mary on his windshield.

Apparently, Perez has the AIDS virus

and believes this is a miracle.

He has refused to get out of his car.

And as you can see,

the faithful have arrived

from all across the state,

each and every one-

- Hi.

- Hey.

Hey, how's it feel to be my husband?

Today I must say that

I'm the happiest man in the world.

Someone shut that dog up!


Excuse me. I'm so sorry.

Can I use your cell

phone? It's an emergency.

- Yeah.

- Oh, thank you so much.

Just... you're so kind.

Just one minute, one minute.

Oh, thank God you're still there.

How's he doing?

Can I speak with him, please?


Hi, honey, it's Mommy.

How you doing, sweet pea?

How you doing? I miss you.

I miss you so much.

I'm on this date, and it's going so well.

It's going really, really well.

His name is David, and he really likes me.

I think he really likes me,

and he even wants to take me to Paris.

I think I got it right.

I think I got it right this time.



I really didn't mean to knock

that table over back there.

I... I just... I don't know what happened.

I just... I'm so... I'm so nervous,

because I really like you,

and I know this is our

first date and everything,

and I know that it's probably not the way

that you wanted it to turn out,

but I can be better.

I really, really want to see you again,

and I really want to

prove to you that I can be-

I can be better than this.

Do you remember Annie Hall, the movie?

I was just thinking about

the first date thing when,

you know, Alvy and Annie,

they talk about the first

kiss during their date,

and they just sort of get it out of the way.

It just feels like that moment.

Listen, Johnny.

Hey, do you want to come in for a minute?

Good night, Johnny.


Where are you?



I found

a new place to dwell

Well, it's down at the end of the lonely street

to Heartbreak Hotel

I've been so lonely, baby

You make me so lonely

I get so lonely, I could die

Hey, where's my dog?

Can you not see that I'm busy?

Come on, man, just have you seen him?

No dogs allowed. Read sign.

Look, where the hell is my dog?

He took off, ran away.

He was barking, barking, barking like crazy,

and I go to the door, he took off, ran away.

Not my fault.


I already told you too many times.

No dogs allowed!

It just holds no value to me.


What does that mean, an act of faith?


Oh, Christ.

Oh, sh*t, I'm sorry.

I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.

What were you doing in the street, huh?

I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Come on.

Come on.

Do you feel a deep sense of loneliness?

Wish that you had someone special

to share your dreams with?

Do you ever wonder if

there is that special person

waiting out there just for you?

You, sir, are a lucky dog.

You hear me?

You're a lucky, lucky dog.

That's what I'll call you.

I'll call you Lucky.

Welcome to your new home, Lucky.

Welcome back.

I'm just passing through.

I don't have a lot of time to waste.

I had no choice.

After you went down,

the feds were watching me like a hawk.

I couldn't go down like that.

- Had a family to take care of.

- What about me?

I didn't have a family?

You don't call. You don't write.

You don't do sh*t. We're friends?

I swear, I would kill you if given a chance.

Remember that job in Carson?

You were young and stupid.

Now you've repaid that

debt with your silence.

This is who we are.

This is the path we chose.

I've come to accept it.
