Freak out!

All's fried! Dried! Cried!

Yeah!

Can you feel it?

Hey!

I'm telling you, girl,

the manager's gonna fire you.

Hey, it's corporate mentality, Jay.

Come on. He doesn't care

about the history...

of this place.

You called him

a cocksucker, Suzette.

Did I say that?

Hey, I'm a garbage mouth, OK?

Everybody!

Come on up!

Oh, what are you doing?

Don't let him

see you drinking.

He's gunning

for you, Suzette.

I've been drinking

rum and Coke...

since before he was born.

He can go f*ck himself.

See that bathroom?

Jim Morrison passed out

in there one night...

with me underneath him.

Jim Morrison is a ghost,

and so are you.

Oh, come on, Matt.

I can't not work here.

You might as well shoot me.

You know,

I just got my car fixed...

I owe rent, I owe money

all over the place.

Come on. Hey.

Come on, seriously.

I'm fun. People love me.

I'm a spirit

around here, man.

You don't want to lose me.

I'm Suzette!

Well, Suzette,

we'll just have to see...

if the club can survive

without you.

Shit!

What you doing?

1, 2, 3, 4, 5...

6, 7, 8, 9, 10.

Oh!

Vinnie.

Vinnie.

Whoops.

Oh!

There's something wrong

with this pump.

No, the pump is fine.

You have to pay cash.

Oh! Come on, man.

I don't have any cash, OK?

And that machine is broken.

Don't you have one

of those thingies?

You know,

those swipey thingies?

Oh!

Disgusting!

Disgusting!

And there is

no excuse for it.

Landed on the back

of my hand and copulated...

2 flies!

On the back of my hand!

It's a terrible,

terrible bus!

Hi. Excuse me.

Hi.

I just was wondering

if you could help me out.

I'm kind of stranded.

And if I could get a dollar

from each of you...

a dollar

from each one of you...

would really be

helping me out. I...

Uh, well...

I don't normally do this.

Hi.

OK. Well, all right.

Whatever you can do.

50 cents, 25 cents.

You know, my car's

just sitting out there...

I'm out of gas...

and I'm just trying

to get to Phoenix.

Phoenix?

I'll buy you a tank of gas...

if you give me a ride.

First, one fly lands,

then a second fly goes zzzz.

I started freaking.

I mean,

they had sex on my skin.

Whoo,

I hope you get over it.

I washed off the germs.

When I get to Phoenix,

I'll take a bath.

But, you know,

what's it say about human beings?

We do basically

the same thing flies do.

Male fly gets on top

of the female fly...

this... activity happens.

The similarity is depressing.

So, why are you

going to Phoenix?

That I can't divulge.

Oh, I see.

Well, are you allowed

to divulge your name?

Harry Plummer.

Are you a writer,

Harry Plummer?

Is that an old typewriter...

between your legs?

Yes, it is,

and I am a writer...

but I don't want to talk...

about why I'm going

to Phoenix.

Then quit bringing it up.

Why are you going

to Phoenix?

To go see a friend.

She's married

to some rich guy there.

He's a lawyer

or something.

I'm gonna ask her...

if I can borrow some money.

That's a very bad idea.

Why? What is?

To show up unannounced,

ask her for money.

She'll be offended.

She used

to be my best friend.

Used to be? When?

You went to high school

together?

Hey, I don't like you

trying to figure me out. OK?

And by the way,

you've got it all wrong.

We dropped out

of high school...

we were roommates,

and we used to...

Well, we were famous,

if you want to know.

As what?

We were groupies.

If you played L. A...

chances are,

we rattled you, babe.

Rattled?

Yeah.

What those flies did...

on your little hand there.

Like that.

Ever hear of Frank Zappa?

Sure.

The Mothers of Invention.
