- Sam.


Come on.

Did you sleep?

- Not really.

Where are we?

- Nowhere.



You all alone up here?

Uh, oh no.

I'm with my brother.

Ah, well.

You two lookin' for something

fun to do in the area, huh?

You got plenty to choose from.

- Oh no, we're

just going camping.

Oh camping.


The black bear campsite and

the flying loon campsite.

Now, black bear campsite

is closed.

- Let's try and rest our

eyes for a bit, okay?

- Are there gonna be

actual beds there?

- Yeah, there's beds and

a couch and a bathroom.

I mean, it's like a normal

house, except it's small.

I think there's a

TV, I'm not sure.

Well, how is there cable

if it's in the

middle of the woods?

- I don't know, the antenna?

Is it heated?

I can't remember.

- Then what happens in the

winter when it gets cold?

- Why don't we try and

rest for a moment, okay?

You want anything else?


Are you having fun?


- I mean, it doesn't look

like you're having fun.

I kinda feel weird.

Weird how?

It's like when I try to sleep.

I can't stop thinking,

and when I think I'm asleep,

turns out that I'm still awake,

and then I kind of can't tell

what's like real or a dream,

or whatever.

What are you thinking of?

You know, things.

You wanna know what I think?

If you wanna stop thinking or

dreaming about certain things,

just stop.

The things inside your head,

they're only as real

as you want them to be.

So if you want, you can just

decide they're not real.

- Decide what's

not real, though?


Everything from

before this trip.

None of it exists, not

unless you want it to.

Take this cup.

It doesn't exist.

Here, look at me.

This is stupid.

Trust me.

But it's right there.

What is?

Your cup.

What's going on?

Nothing's going on.

You're just a kid

going on a camping trip

with your big brother.

- Anything else

I can get for you two?

Um, coffee to go?

And a check, please.

No problem.

Thank you.

Hey Joe.

Didn't think I'd see

you till a little later.

Go pay the lady.

Don't get in there without me.

Is it closed?

Yeah, maybe.

Excuse me.

Hey, come here.

This is Kelly.

She works here.


What's your name?


Oh, that's my cousin's name.

- I was just telling

Kelly that we, uh,

broke down up the road.

Oh yeah.

- Something got

knocked out of place.

Not too sure.

- Well there's a garage

not far from here.

I could call you a

tow, if you want me to.

- Yeah, I can

give you a ride down there

if you don't mind

waiting a little bit.

- Well, we'd really

appreciate it.

Wouldn't we?

Come on, put your clothes on.

- Did you already tell her

what your real name is?


You suck.

She wants to do you.

I'm just being polite.

You should go for it.

Would you ever?

Do it.

Use her hole.

I'll be right back.

- Across America, starting at...

- top story,

there's new details tonight

about the tragic fire that

destroyed a two-story home

in new Brighton

several nights ago.

Firefighters have discovered

the remains of an adult male,

the owner of the

house, among the ruins.

You awake?

You okay?

Get off me, you're gross.

- She says this is

their off season.

So basically no one's here

for the next few months.



She said we can

stay here for free

for however long we want.

You know, some people live

in these places permanently.

And I was thinking, things

aren't really workin' out

the way they were supposed to.

Or whatever.

It's okay.

I think what we do is we

stay here, figure things out,

take our time.

You know?

Oh hi.


Um, is this stuff free?
