I never know

how to answer that question.

Uh, let me think. I...

I'm always on time.

I'm... I'm very organized

with my life like that.


I plan well.

I'm a planner.

I'm also very flexible, though.

Flexible. And, um...

I think that

my greatest strength, though,

is that I anticipate

future problems

and I prepare for them.

Oh, my god.

I am-- I'm so sorry.

- It's okay.

Mmm-- I thought

i turned it off.

You can take that.


It's okay, um...

Where were we?

You have one new voice message.


Argene will be here

for the second interviews.

Are you free for the 29th?

Really? I mean-- yes.

Yes. I will be here.

Thank you.

Hi, sweetie, it's Dina.

I'm sorry I'm calling, but...

It's Ronnie.

She's getting worse.

Her drinking's out of control,

and today she had an accident

with the lawn mower.

I don't know if you can

make the drive, but...

We don't know how to help her.

She stood still,

he spun around,

he took a spill,

she fell down.

--It's open.

In the kitchen.

Faye! Hi!

How was the drive?

You made good time.

Yeah. No traffic.

You just get off work?


-I just can't

get enough of this uniform.


that was on the porch,

I did not make it.

Thank god for that.

Ronnie's gonna be

really glad to see you.

I know it's been hard to

keep in touch. You being away.

But best friends

forever, right?

Where is our little angel?

Follow the bread crumbs.

When Dina said you had

an accident with

the lawn mower,

I figured you'd

pissed yourself...

While lawn mowing.

What are

you doing here?

Besides just stealing

my undies, perv.

Dina's worried about you.

She thinks you've become

a danger to yourself, but...

Now that I've seen you,

I've no idea

what she's talking about.

Wanna hear something funny?

This was his shirt.

I know. I gave it to him.

That creed concert

was our first date.

How the f*ck was

there a second date?

I like creed.

Well, no wonder he dumped you.

Wanna hear something

even funnier?

I would like to hear something

that's actually funny.

These are his pants.

What is in these?

They're like paint pants.

It's no wonder

he got ball cancer.

This is nice.

Kind of like old times.

So faye, hon,

Ronnie told me you got a job.

A blow job.

Not yet. I just passed

the first interview.

But I wouldn't be

a real teacher yet, just...

Just an art docent.


An art docent.

It's, uh...

It's like

a teacher's assistant.

A job's a job.

Just adopt her already.

Where is it?

Um, Vancouver.

That's far.

Yeah, it is.

Well, your parents

must be really proud, faye.

Yeah, they might be proud

if they remembered

that they were parents.


I'm sorry. I'm drunk.

We're gonna have to

make you a name tag.

Have some water, Ronnie.

- Can you eat?

- Mm-hmm.

Ms. dunaway.

Smells great.

Don't swallow it.

Spit it out.

Spit it out.

Good morning, sunshine.

Mmm. What's happening?

What do you mean?

Are we in the mustang?

Why are we in Garrett's car?

Are we in a car?

Did you kidnap me?

Okay, that's a tad dramatic.

We are going to invermere.

No, no, faye, no.

Pull over, please.

No, don't worry.

I packed your night things.

- Pull over.

-We're all set.

Pull the f*ck over, faye!

Turn around.



Okay, what are you

gonna do? Walk home?

What is the big deal?

Invermere is cool.

Invermere is not cool.

Invermere is boring

and fucking quiet.

And that's not even

the goddamn point

because you abducted me!

We are going on vacation.

It's gonna be fun.

Like old times.

Faye, my brother

just fucking died.

I'm well aware of that, Ronnie.
