What do you mean - work?

Do you really think I wanna do that sh*t!

Pharma Rep Fart

My folks want that sh*t!

Really, I'd call it bullshit!

I do, but they've hassled me for over a year

to get a job.

Pick me up in an hour.

Enjoy it, man.

Well, as you know, your grades are not the best...

You've failed Math, Accounting and English.

So what!

Well, I always say grades are not everything.

What is important is how you do your job...

But, I think you can handle it.


Would you like a coffee?

How about a beer?

Maggie, coffee for just me, please.

Sorry, there's no smoking here.


Well, here are the facts.

We've got 12 employees and they are very...

qualified. You would have to take an entree test.

And when would that be?

We'll tell you in time.

Maggie, very good.

Just put it here.

You're welcome.

Maggie, please remind me of that phone call.

Well, you'll know soon enough.

I'm going to be honest with you...

We were really looking for a more sincere person...

for the job, as it demands a lot of responsibility.

Don't consider this as a no thank you.

With enough will power, you could change a little.

That is, if you wanted to.

Kiss my ass.

Us...workers, eh?

Yeah man, I was gonna be an honest sucker.

Forget it!

Eh man, I didn't want to hang around you

shits anyway.

Pass me a beer.

What are we gonna do next?

We still gotta hassle the Rats.

Well, lets go.

Go man, go.

Yeah gonna have a good time

Just let them get here.

We'll beat them to a pulp.

They'll sh*t their pants, those faggots!

Here they come crawling outta the sewers,

those d*ckheads!

You a**holes!

Son of a b*tch!

Shut up, wanker!

F*** yourself, a**hole!

Let's get outta here!

Come on everyone!


What happened to you?

Where have you been?

Come on, what's up?

Piss off!

What have you done?

Kiss my ass!

I've had enough of your rudeness!


Dad and I have to leave now

and you have to go to bed.


Sure, give it a try.


Come on, you want to go with us

next vacation, don't you?

I don't want to.

Sure you do. Peter is here and he'll look after you.

He'll only bring along his stupid friends.

Well, then I'll tell him off.

That isn't going to help.

Then you just call me.

Come on, Annette. Come on.

Bullshit! I'm not looking after that

b*tch. I've got better things to do!

As long as you live under this roof

you will do as I say! Do you hear me?

F*** you!

Please Peter, listen to what your

father says. Please.

Back off!

Well, my friend, I think you better pull

yourself together...

and if you're not home when we get back,

you'll be in big trouble!

Stop, you're hurting him!

-...and you'll not see Steve again!-

This drug addict!

I don't know what's wrong with him.

He's been acting like this the past two weeks.

Don't worry darling,

I'll find out.

I've told you before not to play with this one!


You can't sleep, can you?

I thought I'd read a story to you

so you can fall asleep, OK?

The story is called...



So Dr. Ricks -

I'd still like to introduce you to our patient, Parker.

Parker? Parker?

What about him?

Well, yesterday we had to lock him up again.

He got uneasy and then violent.

The consequence was a warden

with a smashed knee cap.

Parker, Parker...

Oh, you mean Cliff Parker, the woman murderer?

Yes, that's the one.

Tell me about him.

Here are his records.

His grandfather slaughtered his entire family

right before his eyes. He was ten years old.

Since then, he has been in and out of many orphanages.

At 13, he was noticed for the first time.

He cut off the thumb of one of his classmates.

Later, he made killing his hobby.

He has murdered 21 people.

I had started therapy with him.

And he was coming along just fine.

I extended his personal room to move.

Yes, but then yesterday.

Well, as we can see in his records,

it's clear case of Schizophrenia.

So, what do you want with therapy?

I don't see this as a lost cause.

I rather think it's a...

Yes, I would even continue the therapy.

You're going to do what?

Yes, I will continue with it. I have to.

He's so intelligent, not just some kind of maniac.

Yes, he is fascinating. He is so...

He is a psychopath, Dr. Morris, do you understand?

There is nothing you can get out of him.

He's just a monster. Leave this man in

the isolation ward and forget about him.

I don't think you know this. I had

stopped all his medications.

Sh*t, see what happened due

to you taking him into therapy.

Hurry, go sound the alarm!

Hurry, get going!

Where is she?

Dear Julia,

We'll be back tonight.

Dinner is in the stove.


I'm going on a date.


Oh, it's you.

Why do you call me?

Why? I've told you

there is absolutely no sense in it.

I told you not to call me anymore.

Can't you just forget everything?

I don't want to.

Listen, there is absolutely no

reason for you to call me.

Just forget it, OK.


Hey, I don't have much time.

I've got to run.

Why, what are you up to this time?

I have a date tonight.

Really, with who?

You don't know him.

I've never seen him around myself.

What's his name?

Brian, Brian Connor.

Brian, Brian - Don't know him.

What does he look like? Is he ugly?

Yes, as ugly as yours.

Listen to you, are you crazy?

What can I get you?

I'll have a coke.

Nothing, thanks.

Where did you pick him up?

We started chatting at the Hollywood last night.

Wow, and what's the catch?

No catch. He's good looking. He's got charm and

actually everything a man would need.

I think I've already fallen a little in love.

He's not a nutcase,

like Jurgen with his rainforest trip.

What rainforest trip?

He was going to walk the Amazon and that

sort of crap. That's what he calls a vacation.

And he's also got pet tarantulas and other weird stuff.

Yes, alright. He was a little strange.

-Well, than make sure you don't do anything just yet.-

Yes, I'll try.

Call me tomorrow and tell me how it went.

I will, but I have to go now.

Well, I'll keep my fingers crossed. See ya.

Thanks, I'll need it. See you.

OK, bye..


-See ya.-

Jesus, that was funny. It almost killed us.

She turned all red.

I've never seen someone turn that red before.

And here's the best part...

...she turned around to leave...

...and she slipped on the stupid sausage.

We died laughing.

I spent 5 years there, mostly doing stupid things.

Ah, so that's what you learned in school.

Thats education for you.

And you?

Would you like another coke?

Yes, please.

One coke, please.

It will be right there.

Yes, I know I might sound a little

cunning but you are really very beautiful.

Please, don't say anything now. I don't want to hear

any comments. It has been a magnificent night.

I mean, it was really nice to dine with you.

I would like it to remain so for tonight.

I hope you're not angry with me.

Your coke, ma'am.

Thank you.

So, what about your family? What do they do?

My family was killed many years ago.
