Hello?

What?

I'll be right there.

Hello?

Hello?

It's me.

Nothing.

I'm just on my way

to a client...

And i just began to think

about our house...

It just seems like

i was imagining things.

When?

As i was leaving,

you were moving around.

I'm not sure... i don't know...

I never know whether or not

to wake you during a nightmare.

I work for your

insurance company.

I'm an adjuster.

Thank you...

Thank you...

Yes chiquito la la la la la

La la la la

The boy has sat upon

his mother's lap

Lost who have

played love love

The boy has dreamed

God bless you my joy

The boy has lain

so close to my heart

I'm leaving now.

Ha! Ha! Ha!

Bye...

Bye... take care.

Ah...

"Lick it!"

Lick it all over this cunt...

That's it...

Look at what i have for you!

It's your favorite toy...

Ooh! Ooh! Hum...

Does that feel good, daddy?

Does that feel good?

Tell me it feels good, daddy!

Oooh! Oooh!

Here we go!

Your favourite part!

Well, it seems like

it's electrical.

Did you sleep?

Was it too noisy?

Was the room okay?

I... i usually recommend it...

It's very important that

you stay some place that...

You feel comfortable.

You may not feel it but...

you're in a state of shock.

Ah!

Ah! Ah! Ah!

No...

Stop!

Stop! Please! Stop! Please!

Ooh! Aah! Aah!

Please, stop!

Aah! Aah!

Watch your step.

You must itemize

all the contents.

Everything that was in the house

At the time of the fire.

Beside each item,

You put the approximate value.

It helps to draw a plan.

It makes things clearer.

Unless you have

photographs, then...

I'll take you back to the motel.

No! No! Please! Stop!

We seem pretty much in accord.

25 a's, 13 b's, 2 c1's,

43 e's, 39 f's...

No g... surprising.

And 3 h's.

Any comments?

Questions?

Good.

Jerry, what have you got next?

It looks good.

I gave you my numbers,

if you need anything else...

Yes.

Do you eat out a lot?

Why?

It's an additional cost

We can cover.

There's a lot i need to know

before i can submit your claim.

What you had...

What your standard

Of living was...

But you're tired.

We can start this

tomorrow, okay?

Hi, noah!

Hi, noah!

Noah!

How are you?

Hello, mister render.

How are you doing, louise?

Fine... and you?

Good... good.

Listen, someone

just moved into 92.

Her name is arianne.

She's very tired.

Fire?

A pretty bad one.

She'll stay long?

I think so.

I'll let her sleep.

Are these new?

The prayer cards?

No, we've always had them.

They're nice, aren't they?

Hi, mister render.

Hi!

- Hi, noah.

How are you doing?

Noah!

Hi, tim.

What a surprise!

I was just passing by.

Come on in.

Sure?

Of course!

Where's lorraine?

She went out.

They all work?

There's some water

damage on the shades,

But...

What's the matter, tim?

I just don't seem

To see the end of this.

I understand.

Any word on the claim?

It's taking so long!

It's complicated when you live

At your place of business,

Sorting out inventory

From personal belongings...

We did that weeks ago!

You have the list.

No, i'm waiting too.

The sooner we settle this,

The happier we'll be.

It won't be much longer.

We owe so much to you.

You've been so... caring.

Listen...

I deal with people, okay?

I mean, you're in

shock, it's normal.

I'd better go.

Say hi...

Say hello to lorraine.

He wants to know

if you're an indian!

What if i say yes?

He'll believe you.

Yes!

Oh...

You're so good to me.

The boy has lain

so close to my heart

Love a long day

Hey!

No... no...

You were having a nightmare.

How do you know?

You were moving around.

I don't scare you
