Okay, amigos.


F*** me.


Comienza con la basura.


F***ing Christ!

Jesus Christ!



Hey, wake up.

Who the hell are you?

Come on, you gotta get up.

Who the hell are you?

What do you mean

who the hell am...

Who... I'm sleeping here.

Who the hell are you?

Yeah, I see that,

but you gotta get up.

Come on. Get up.

What day is this?



Come on, get up.

Let's go.

Yeah, it's okay.

It's alright.

It's not alright. Get up.

You gotta get up. Come on.

Let's go.

Sheila's a friend of mine.

She lives here.

I always stay here.

Whoever was here was evicted,

alright? It's fine, it's fine.

It's not fine.

Come on, get up. Let's go.


What're you doin'?

She's comin' back.

There's nobody comin' back,

buddy, alright?

She told me she's coming

back. I'm just gonna wait here.

There's nobody here.

Didn't you notice nobody lives here?

How'd you get in here?


Hey, listen to me, buddy,

you got two minutes, alright?

Do what you gotta do,

then you gotta go.

No, no, no,

no, no, no. No.

Can't do.

There are laws.

She's gonna take you

to court case.


Cannot do.

She's comin' back here.


She'll be fine.

I'm okay, I'm okay,

I'm okay, I'm okay.

I wanna stay here.

She wanted me

to wait here for her.

So I'll stay here.

Nobody comin' back.

You wanna wait, wait outside.

She's comin' back.

She's not gonna lie to me.

I'm here with her.

This is my home.

This... this is my home.

Wait outside.

You don't live here, alright?

I'm serious.

What're you doin'?

Did... did she...

Did she leave a number?

I don't even know who

you're talking about, alright?

An address or something?


No. Time to go.


Let's go.

Well, where's my...

My... where's my stuff?

Where's my stuff?

I don't know where your stuff is.

Look around

and then you gotta get out.

Come on.


Is everything alright?

Yeah. It's a pigsty.

No, I'm tellin' you.

Well, I'm goin' upstairs now.

The whole ceiling

has collapsed...

Hold on.

I'll call you back.


Anybody in there?


Anybody home?



What do you want me to say?

I mean, he's your dad too.

He's gotta eat.

If he doesn't eat, then what?

You have to stay there.

If it takes him,

like, an hour and half

but that's what it takes.


I said 2500.

Oh, give me a f***in' break.

Give you a break?

Ah, this guy.

I gave you enough breaks.

Not now, buddy.

I told you, I'm sorry

I can't help you, alright?


I just wondered, could I...

could I borrow some money?

Yeah, I know.

I'm sorry whatever happened.

I wanna find her... You're not gonna

find her here. I told you she's gone.

What are you doin'?

What do you think?

Come on.

Thank you, mister. Thank you.

What the f***

did you do that for?

What do you care?

Come on, work with me, alright?

I can't do it

for less than 4500.


You want half a job?

Look, just do it for 25.

You want me to do half the work?


Look, just do it for 25.

You know, put me down for 25.

Oh, you know?

You think you can.

Here you go.

Thank you.

You're welcome.

Yeah. You know what,

there are options.

I've told you that

so many times.

You know what?

You and me, we need to go out.


We can go...

I'm sorry?

How about Saturday?

Me and you,

we can hit that spot...

How crazy is that?




Who is it?

Look, stop ringing that bell

whoever you are.

I'm sorry. Sorry. Sorry.

It's just some guy.

Don't worry about it. Relax.

I'm gonna take care of it,



Jesus Christ!

Hey. Hey!
