You've reached the bell...

You've reached the bellows.

Leave a message.

Hey, um, you weren't there

to meet me at the station,

so I'm, I'm just walking home so

I hope you're not on your way,

'cause I'm nearly there.


Well, I'm looking forward

to seeing you all;

I hope everything's okay.

Alright, um...

Are you coming over?

Wha-what's wrong?

Dude, what's

the matter with you?

The f*ck you doing?

You wanna fucking go?

Fucking f*ck you up.


Yeah, mum, it's me.

How's my boy?

Yeah, I'm fine, mum,

how are you?


Did you go to mass, son?

Yeah, uh-huh.

Good, good.

Was a beautiful day

here actually.

How was the weather there?

Um, yeah, yeah.

It's a beautiful day, yeah.

Strange, isn't it?

That today should

be so beautiful?


It is.

Yeah, it is.

You have one

minute left on your call.

Mum, maybe I better go.


Yeah, well, this phone

card is running out,

and time seems to be taking

its toll ay-de-ay-de.

It's lovely to hear from you.


I'm really sorry I couldn't

be there today, mum.


Hey, man.

Oh, hello to you, too.

You, you alright, man, you,

you were late again.

Sorry, Sam.

I'm sorry, it's fine,

I don't really care.

I probably care about this

job as much as you do so.

But just, uh, you know,

try to show up on time.

I don't wanna have to fire you.

Ah, can you go clear some tables

or, ah, you know, take

someone's order, anything?

Please, thanks.

Um, don't look over there, but

there's a guy who looks...

Don't look over there!

Don't look over there.

Oh, uh, table 7.

Table 7.

Table 7 perhaps?

You want something?

You don't remember me, do you?

Of course I remember you.

Stare much?


Stare much?

Are you serious?

Whoa, whoa, whoa,

whoa, whoa, whoa.

Whoa guys, settle

down, settle down.

He started it.

Hello, that guy started

it, we saw, we saw it.

Yeah, he totally did.

He totally started it.

- He was being a dick.

- Huge dick.


Enormous, enormous dick.

Huge dick.

He was, get him out of here.

I've already had you once, mate.

- Hey, come on.

- Kick him out.

Get him out.

Kick him out, right outta

here, get him outta here.

- Out.

- Out.

I want him outta here,

we want him outta here.


What's your name?

Her name's sue.

You can't speak for yourself?

No, she can't.

Wow, you're a serious wacko.

Come on, em.

I mean sue.

I'm, I'll be right there.

Ya sure?

I'm watching you, wacko.

So how'd that go for you?

Yeah, it was good, I got fired.

- Great.

- Yeah.

I've got another job so...

Well, hopefully you don't

kill anyone there.

I can't promise.

Where do I know you from?

I saw you at the club

the other night.

That's not it.

This is our favorite restaurant.

You probably just saw

me here before...

No, that's not it either.

Where's your girlfriend?


Your girlfriend, the one

you were dancing with.

Oh, she's not my girlfriend.

- Does she know that?

- Yeah.

What about you,

you got a boyfriend?

I should probably go.


Nice to meet ya.

Give me your hand.

Pretty girls make you wait

though, that's all I'm saying.

Maybe we should call

them or, I don't know.


Give me your phone.

Oh, hi, you alright?



I'm sorry, it's Anna, right?


- Sammy.

- I know.

What happened to your hand?

Nothing of particular import.

You won't tell me?

You're not from around

here, are you?

No, I'm not from around here.

So why'd you come here?



I heard you girls had really

good oral hygiene.

- We do.

- Yeah?

Go on, show me then.

So, is this just what you do?
