- Evan.

- Hey.

You were out for a while. Are you hungry

or thirsty or anything?

I love you.

I love you, too, Mom.

How was work?

- It was all right.

- Oh.

Are you happy?


Do you want to hear a joke?


This shopkeeper

receives flowers

at the opening of his new store...

and the card says, "Rest in peace."

Are you sure you're not thirsty, Ma?

So he calls up the florist

angry and she says,

"Sir, at least you weren't the one

who got flowers at your wife's funeral

that said, "Congratulations

on the new location."

You need more morphine?


Do you want me to call a priest?

I want you to know I...

think you two were amazing.

And I'm grateful for everything you...

Why don't you guys bury

these in your stomachs, huh?

That sucked, I'm sorry.

Look, I'm gonna...

I'm gonna have Shitty Carl

try to cover your shift.

I'm gonna call Carl.

- I'm sorry about your mom.

- Thanks, Mike.

You know, Ev,

that was a real small funeral.

I mean, you know, it was intimate.

That's what I meant, it was good.

It was a good funeral.

Yeah, they really never had

any friends or family

or anything, so...

Nobody else?

They were only children.

I mean, their parents died young.

It was just the three of us.

You know, I'm really sorry about

the casket thing, too.

I mean, I think I saw I had some...

some fish oil on my hands

- and it... the brass was slick.

- Funerals are for the living, Tom.

Why the f*** does this f***ing

goddamn machine not work?!

- F***!

- The cigarette machine is for decoration.

- There's no cigarettes there.

- Give me some of that drink!

Do you want a shot? Let's have a shot.

- I got to work later.

- No, shots. Mike, shots, please.

Whiskey, whiskey.

I gotta take a piss.

...some fruity f*ggot juice

just like you, you f***in'...

Watch where the f*** you're going, man.

- I'm sorry.

- Bite me, b*tch.

Yeah, you're f***ed up, huh?

You tryin' to roll on my b*tch?!

- No.

- I f***in' saw you, man.

- I wasn't.

- Hey, hey, hey, hey!

Guy had a f***in' rough day, all right?

Why don't you just shut

your f***in' cock holster,

have a drink with me?

Calm down, Jesus Christ.

Got a cigarette?

No, I roll my own. Sorry.

Hey, I got a f***in' cigarette.

You want a cigarette? Here.

- Hey, hey, what the f***?!

- F***!

Hey! Hey!

Babe, get up! Get up!

Kick his f***in' ass!

- Get him off him!

- F***!

- Evan, Evan, Evan!

- F***, that's enough, man.

- All right. I'm all right!

- Babe, babe, babe.

F***in'... Evan, Jesus Christ, brother.

I mean, you knocked that stupid f***in'

gold thing right out of his face.

Are you guys f***in' serious?

Ev, I just picked up, like, f***in' four

teeth off the goddamn ground, man.

Holy sh*t.

I mean, holy f***ing sh*t.

Here, put this on your sh*t.

The cops were here, guys.

Is he pressing charges?

The psychopath? I don't know!

Maybe! You almost f***in'

murdered the guy!

Will you... you're getting blood

all over your ice.

Will you put the gauze

on your goddamn knuckles

and then f***in' put ice on it?

Tommy, seriously, cock holster mouth?

- Hey, what...

- Why would you say that?

- 'Cause he had a f***in' cockmouth.

- For f***'s sake!

Look, man, you nee... you need

to change up your environment.

You have a lot of sh*t going on,

your whole family's dead,

and I think the best thing for you

would be to just shift gears

and do something completely

different with yourself.

Are you telling me that I'm fired, Mike?

He's not saying that.

Mike, you wouldn't...

I'm not saying you're fired.

I'm not saying you're fired.

No, Mike, you're not saying that.

But the boss was here

and he said you can't work here

anymore, man. I'm sorry.

I really don't want to be

unemployed right now, Mike.

Look, I can bring you back.

I swear to God I can bring you back.

I brought Shitty Carl back.

He stabbed a goddamn

crippled guy in the leg with a fork.

Right, Shitty Carl! He's a f***in' sh*t.

He's a piece of sh*t!

- I just need some time.

- Ah, f***!

I just need some f***in' time, man.

You know how it is, man.

I mean, the f***ing Yelp reviews.

- We're getting f***ed here. I can't...

- What are you gonna do, brother?

- Where did you get this?

- Evan, wait...

All right, I don't need you

to f***in' follow me home, Tom.

Just hold up, man.



Dude, do you need any help

down at the boats?

Can I have one of those?


I'll ask around.

You should talk to Dale

about construction gigs.


He's been unemployed since June, man.

Give me that lighter.

You want to gut fish for tourists?

I mean, I smelled like a tuna fish's

a**hole for four years,

but it's good work.

Smell that.

- I don't... I don't know.

- Just smell it.

- I don't know.

- It's like it's on me forever.

I got some inheritance.

I can just use that.

Yo, where my f***in'

cigarette at, b*tch?

It's gonna get real f***in' boring

- following me around all night.

- I know where you live now, b*tch.

Why don't you just go back to f***in'

East County you f***in' tweakers?

- F*** you, you motherfuckers.

- F*** you!

Thanks for staying, man.

Yeah, they'll file a police report,

they'll sue me,

then they'll come back here

with baseball bats.

You want me to stay? Got an extra bed?

My mom's.

F***. I mean, Ev, I love you, brother,

but I'm not drunk enough to sleep

in your mom's deathbed.


Why don't you just lock the doors?

Justin Benson

Justin David Ramsay Benson (born 1 March 1967 in Dublin, Republic of Ireland) is a former Irish cricketer. He was a right-handed batsman and right-arm medium pace bowler as well as an occasional wicket-keeper. Though born in Ireland, he spent the early part of his cricket career playing solely in England, starting by playing minor counties cricket with Cambridgeshire before moving on to play first-class cricket with Leicestershire. He spent five years with Leicestershire from 1988 to 1993 and as his career with them was winding down, he began to play for the country of his birth shortly after they gained associate membership of the International Cricket Council in 1993. He made his debut for Ireland against Australia in 1993 and was then selected for the 1994 ICC Trophy. He carried on playing for Ireland whilst also again playing minor counties cricket for Cambridgeshire, playing in one more ICC Trophy in 1997 as well as the inaugural European Championship in 1996. His last match came against the MCC at Lord's in August 1997 at which point he had represented Ireland 59 times. He was captain in all his games in 1996 and 1997. more…
