Why do they do that, Dad?

That's not good.

No, that's not good boy, that's for sure.

But it is what it is, come.


- You said it yourself, you know.

They're monsters.

But that's all they are.

It is his creeps, they hunt in groups

and they have provided on the weak.

Yes, but not for me?

- No, not you, I promise.

How can you be so sure?

- Because if you do not know:

Always remember,

outside this house is a forest...

...a big, dark, scary forest

full of bad characters...

...waiting in the trees

to get you to take.

That's why I tell you, boy.

- I do not like it, dad.

I know, but do not worry.

There are three simple rules...

...that help you to survive in the

scary forest.

And if you remember, nothing will

you ever lost or can not do.

What are the rules, dad?

- Okay, good.

Always pay attention to strangers.

Do not always know what they say, because

can the wolves in sheep's clothing.

be loyal, boy. Especially to people,

you love and you trust.

And three:
it's time to go to sleep.

- Dad.

No, wait, I remember.

Three, yes.

This is important.

Act like a lion, boy

not act like a lamb.

Do not follow other people.

Go on your own instincts

and stick to what you think is right.

Live in the scary forest,

follow the magical rules.

Then nothing will ever get

or something can participate.

The time now is 02:00.

You better go to sleep.

- Why not help anyone?

There is no one to help.

- We'll call the police, they stop it?

Go to sleep, boy.

If we see you again

then I'm not happy.

Okay, now you little bastard.

- And you know what you forgot?

Thank you to say.

Say it.

Say, thank you, damn.

- I think he's had enough.

Let's go.

Since when vacuuming your

the kitchen floor, Jenny?


- Do you have headaches, Willie?

You were quite drunk last night,

you could not even come up the stairs.

It happens when you go out with the guys.

- Yes, you say.

A man works hard all week

and then requires a drink.

A few drinks? You tell him, Paul?

It is true, Daddy.

You made us crazy.

You started to sing a song

the Black and White Minstrels.

And when you tried to go watch TV.

- Is that really so?

And when you fell asleep and snored.

- Your father has his old behavior again.

There was probably nothing on TV again.

What do you think, boy?

No comment.

- That's better.

Where is my new shirt, Jenny?

- That's the clothesline stolen.

They have things again

stolen from the clothesline, damn.

What is a Snowdropper?

- A Snowdropper

is the lowest form of life

on this planet, boy.

Harness that clothing clothesline

steal from other people.

They even stole the diapers

the clothesline of Pearl Jones.

It's getting worse.

- Yes.

Where are you going?

- I take a walk.

I'll make it up with Johnny and Jimmy.

Put your coat on because it's cold.

- That's right, do the damn door.

Be careful and 16.00 back, yes?

- Okay.


- Go hang out somewhere else, a**hole.

- I ram it together.

I can not earn as you're here.

It's still early,

just do what you gotta do.

Give me a loaf of bread, please.

- Bread?

I will give you a much, Corey.

You stay do annoying.

Come, come.

I just saw the Banks brothers.

- Where?

Down the street.

- I hope they die, that ugly.

And I had to wash this finger again.

- Why?

Lisa Boyue

- Lisa Boyue, you can not.

She gave me three flying saucers

if I would do it.

And I would get a Bazooka Joe

if she could sit. to my dick

But I did not.
