Cheyenne, is Mary.

Why 'does not go from here?

My mother is going crazy for the story of Tony.

In my opinion,

would do you good to see a friend.

I was wondering...

'Cause of all the vices that I have granted


There 'never was to smoke.

"Where 's my son?

You'd have to ask."

The rest is bullshit.

Unfortunately I do not know where he is.

Look for it, then. Look for it all.

Three months is a lifetime.

Why ', if all goes well, take a

and goes?

Without saying a word, without giving more


Why '?

Do not you ever smoked

'cause you're still a child

The children are the only ones who do not feel

never want to smoke.

Even Tony has never smoked.

I know you're wondering

"In what way has it off with a leg in plaster

to the groin?".

Not apple was wondering, Jeffrey

You must go by trial and error.

How can you have all these women?

On second thought, you're beautiful, you're not smart...

And instead, you're pushy, egotistical

and sweat like a pig.

So what the f*** you special?

Of special? Nothing.

Pero 'I have two things that many men

curiosity' and time.

I dedicate a lot of time

women and that 's what the lure

All Saints day. Do you understand?

Not allow themselves to exhaustion.

You give 'cause no

believed to be worth all this time. Got it?

Enough. And the curiosity '?

The curiosity 'and' gasoline

that keeps you alive for those six months.

Do you know who said the zoppetta

before my orgasm?

"Cum on chalk, so

'leave me the signature."

Do you realize?

These are things that will enrich.

What the f***?

Do I talk to myself?

Do you know that one evening

Jane was watching TV...

And and '

asleep with a lit pipe in his hand?

The sofa cushion

had started to catch fire

I noticed the time

and I turned off the fire.

I forgot a crucial detail,

Desmond, why do not you laughed.

Jane is working as a fireman.

You live alone?

I? No. With my family, unfortunately

. I have six brothers.

Sh*t! Six brothers!

Yes', you fools who do nothing

from morning to night.

If you disappear for a while '

from the face of the Earth, it would be better for everyone.

Sorry, I go to the bathroom.

- Excellent move, Desmond.

- What did I say wrong?


Women taking to the baths.

Think a young man going to get coca
