- Hi.

- Hi.

- Pluto.

- Jellyfish.

Did you find the place okay?



You look better than I thought.



Your emails are just so depressing.

My emails were depressing?


Well, looks like the rain stopped.

It should be a nice, sunny day.

I don't like the sun.

Yeah, me neither.

You've brought your computer.

- That's good.

- Yeah.

- Let me just take that.

- What do you want it for?

I just wanna be able

to get rid of the evidence.

I don't... I don't want

any record of our correspondence.

I don't want everyone

getting all depressed

over me being...

you know, me being dead.

Tell me about it.

Wanna go?


- I f***ing hate Messiah.

- Well...

- I hope he dies.

- Me too.

He's, like, one of those saviors,

you know.

He's trying to...

trying to save the world,

stop everyone

from hurting themselves

or committing suicide.

I hate those people.

He should just

mind his own business.

There are people who want to be saved

by people like him though...

people who leave

all these comments,

people like Nursery.


She's pretty, huh?

Yeah, she's pretty.

Who do you like on that site?

I like you.

Who do you hate?

Needle and Grimalkin.

They're both me.

Are you schizophrenic?


I get that a lot.

There's a little store up here.

I'm gonna stop,

grab a couple of things.

It's the last one for a while, so...

- Is that okay?

- Yeah.

10% off next time.


Have a nice day.


Sorry, I...

I bought a bunch of stuff.

Oh, that's...

that's okay.

We'll just have a party.

I'm sure that

that $10 wasn't enough.

It's fine.

I added my own money.

I don't mind giving you some more.

I guess I don't need it anymore.



Let's go.


have you thought about

how we're gonna die?

Yeah. I mean, some.

Some, I guess.

How about you?

I don't want it to hurt too much.

I'm kind of scared of guns.

I don't wanna jump off

something high either.

I mean,

I'm sure it feels great

when you're falling,

but it probably hurts when you land.

I definitely don't want

my head smashed in.

I mean,

can you imagine

if at that last moment?

You're like, "Damn, my face,"

and that was your last thought?

That'd be the worst.

So you don't want it to be messy.

I'd say so.

What about you?

I just want it to be over.

This is the worst muffin

I've ever had in my life.

I can't just end it

like this.

There's a Thai place up the road.

Were you holding out on me?

No, I wasn't holding out on you.

I just...

I didn't think you'd be hungry.

I can't just...

end it with a shitty old muffin.

This is it.

So we should probably

just get it to go, right?


I just...

I don't want anyone to see us.

No, let's eat in.

I don't think that's a good idea.

You're being paranoid

No one's gonna be looking at us.

- Let's eat in.

- No. Listen.

Yes, I just... I really don't want

anyone to see us, okay?

Is that okay?

When we die,

none of it's gonna matter anyway.

Look, I just...

you know what? I don't even know why

we're going in here in the first place.

I think we should

just be going. I think...

I don't want anyone to see us.

I just wanna go.

- Takeout... take...

- I just want... I just wanna go.

Takeout will be fine.

What do you want?

Come on.

I'm not going in.

I don't want anyone to see us.

I'm gonna go in.

I wanna eat in.

Well, you know what? Then why

don't you just jump off a bridge?

I got this for you.

He wanted to come with us.

You don't wanna stop, do you?


I just...

I wanted my last day to be perfect.

But this sucks.

I failed.
