Last Night Script - Dialogue Transcript

Voila! Finally, the Last Night script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the Don McKellar movie starring Sarah Polley, Sandra Oh, etc.  This script is a transcript that was painstakingly transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of Last Night. I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in there and I'll be eternally tweaking it, so if you have any corrections, feel free to drop me a line. You won't hurt my feelings. Honest.

Swing on back to Drew's Script-O-Rama afterwards for more free movie scripts!

Your esteemed




There he is.

Oh, you look so handsome

in that suit.



And Rose.

Yes, well-- Rose.



Rose from Edmonton.

You remember

Rose from Edmonton.



Rose from Edmonton.

Your dear sister








Alex. I thought

that was you.



I didn't know you

were back in the picture.

I thought you had fled to, um--



Patrick. Patrick, shut up.

To the hills

or wherever--



He comes back

when it counts.



Yeah, but I'm surprised

you could come.




some big familything--

some bigpig roast.



Patrick !

What ? l'm greetinghim

like a brother.



- You're being obnoxious.

- Yeah, well, exactly.



Don't pay any attention.

He's trying to be funny.



Actually, we are going

to my parents after.



So, let's enjoy

the time we have.



- We werejust opening

the stockings.

- Where's mine ? You started ?



Well, we couldn't wait forever.

I don't know. Maybe there

isn't anything left.



What did you get ?

Is this yours ?

She gave you all this ?



All ofthis

great stuff.



One ofthese, yeah.



Isn't it a little

late for that ?

It's old.



From when I was a kid.

She's wrapping this old

stuff up from the attic.



It's like nostalgia.




- Did you notice the tree ?

- [Grandmother]

lt'sa nice tree.



Your old dad,

he got out the chain saw,

and he dragged it back...



from the front yard

ofthe Winterson house.

It's quite the tree.



You remember Hazel Winterson.

[Mr. Wheeler] They were

one ofthe first to leave.




Well, l'm notsurprised.



Here we are.

Ooh, aren't you lucky.



look whatSanta

broughtyou last night.



Yea !

Not that you

deserve it.



Thankyou, Santa.

Imagine. Coming late

to Christmas.



Ah, ah, ah.

Not in the fire.



- Oh, right. It's fake.

- What do you mean, it's fake ?

It's not fake.



It's not for burning.



Use the bag.



Whenyou two were kids,

you always used

to wake usat  .:  .



""Oh, can we open

the presents now, Mom ?



Mom-- Mom, it's Christmas.

Wake up, Dad !""



Well, no point

trying to go to sleep.



But your father

put his foot down.



""No opening the presents

until your grandma arrives.""



We had to put a skipping rope

across the stairs...



just to keepyou

fromgettingat the tree.



- Skipping rope ?

- [Mr. Wheeler]

l'm surprisedit worked.



Now he comes

an hour late.



Uh, well, Mom, there are

two really good excuses

I can think of...



that maybe

youshouldkeep in mind.



For one thing, it's not really

Christmas today, is it, Mom ?




it's the endofthe world.



The worldis ending tonight

at midnight,



andthat'skept me




I'll check the dinner.



Would it hurt you

to play alongjust once ?



lt meansa lot to her--

to have herfamily.

I'm sorry.



Today ofall days.



All right.



Okay, I'm opening.

Uh, can I open

the big one first ?



Wait foryour mother.



Mom ! Mom !



[Man On Radio]

lhavejust one question

formy listeners.



Doyou thinkJimmy

on theirlast night together?



let's take a look

through the lookingglass




Here on CKRT,

withya untilthe end.



¢Ü¢Ü[Man Singing]












So, juice ?



Oh. Perfect.

Mm, tropical punch.



You treat me so well.



Well, you get one

every day at around now,

if I'm not mistaken.



I thought

I'd try it myself.



I thought

you never noticed.



Oh, but I did.



So, how goes the battle ?



Fine. Good.



Good old computer.




Well, imagine,

even tenyears ago...



you'd have to have

eight or nine stations

just to keep the system running.



I know.



But now--




just you.

And you.



Well, l--

l'm almost done.




Oh, you've

alreadygot one.

Oh, this ?



Yes. Well,

this one's old.

You know, flat.



Yeah. Well,

keep up the fight.






[ Car Beeping ]




Oh, people,



this is the last night,

you hearme ?



Hi. This is Roweena.

Please leave a message.




[ Beep ]

Good evening,

Mrs. R. Wheeler.



I'm calling from

the gas company,



and wejust wanted to thankyou

for being our customer

over the years.



I hope you are doing well

and spending these final hours

of peace with your loved ones.



Rest assured that we will do

our utmost to keep the gas

Thankyou and good-bye.






[line Ringing]



[Telephone Ringing]



[Ringing Continues]



Will somebody get that !

[Ringing Continues]



just leave it, Mom !

Leave it to the machine !



ButAunt Margo

is taking the whole family,

[Ringing Continues]




the Simpson clan,

up north to Muskoka.



And she says

the whole congregation is

going to meet around the lake.



And at midnight,

or a quarter to, I guess,



they're all going out

in canoes.




Oh, my God!




Imagine ending it all

singing ""Kumbaya.""



Yes, well, she is

with the United Church.



Tah-dah !

[All] Oh !

[Jennifer] There she is !



Your mother knows

how to handle a turkey.

What a bird.



Don't butcher it.

I'll be right back.



What's she

talking about ?




you like the dark ?

Yes, please.



There were people

in the street again today.




togo in cycles.



You be careful whenyou leave.

Don'tgo out in thestreets

unlessyou have to.



Oh, come on, Dad.

They're safe.

They'rejust having fun.



Oh, that's fun, is it ?

I'm not so sure.



lhave to admit

they've been better

the last while.



But that'snotsayingmuch,

comparedto the first months.

Rememberthat nonsense ?




two sides.

To what ?



Well, I mean,

I understand.



You understand what ?



Whypeople do it.

Go crazy in thestreet.



Mother, I have a little ham

you might prefer.



Foryour condition.



People are destroying things,




It'sjust a--

just a chance to--

to blow some off.



What ? Heads ?




Steam. Oh, mymistake.


Blow offsome steam.



Right. Alex, I think maybe

I should mention, before

you make any faux pas here,



that we have a tradition

in this family-- that we

don't kill other people.



Patrick, that'snot

what he's saying.

You know what he means.



People want

to experience things.



And we're all gonna

die anyway, so--



That gives us all

the more reason to be civil.



Now more than ever

we should be courteous

and respect each other's needs.



It's a test ofour values.



Sweetheart, you joining us ?



Nice speech, Dad.




Oh ! Golly!



Wow. Look at that.



I know that this is a bit much,

but, Patrick, you always

loved lamb.




that should do it.



We didn't want anyone

to starve.



Well, thank God,

we don't have to fit

in those canoes.



I'm stuffed

just looking at it.



I wanted you to have

something special,



so when you

go home, Patrick,

alone at midnight,




parents weren'tso bad.




is that all or--



Yes, I'm ready.




Oh, Christ.



Let's say grace.



For what we are

about to receive,



may the Lord

make us truly thankful.




[ Crying ]




Mom, I told you about

this three weeks ago.



Why can't you just stay

a couple of hours ?



You haven't

got anybody

to go home to.



Mom, I made a decision

about where I want to be

when it happens.



And I'm sorry,

but you're going

to have to accept that.



[Mrs. Wheeler




[ Crying Continues ]



[ Clicks Tongue ]



[Crying Continues]



Well, the food's

getting cold, isn't it ?



[KnockingAt Door]



[Knocking Continues]









I'm Lily.



I know.



I'm black.



I could tell.

Yep.      percent.



[ Chuckles ]

I believe you.







Uh, come on in.



Make yourself

at home.






Um, would you

like a drink ?



I have, uh, drinks.






All right.

Uh, cognac it is.



Um, should I take off

my clothes ?





l'llbe there in a minute.



[Glasses Clinking]




You're welcome.



You don't remember me,

do you ?






We met once before

at, uh, a party.



At, uh,

Basil's place.



I used to go

to a lot of parties.



Yeah. Well, that's

how I got your number.

Through a friend of Basil's.



I was asking around,

and, uh-- Chris Fenton

is his name.



Anyway, he was talking

about this one girl--



beautiful girl--



and, uh, click,

like that, I remembered.



That's very sweet.



So we should, uh,



head to the bedroom ?




Go ahead.

I'll be with you

in a minute.






¢Ü¢Ü [ Soft R&B ]






More ?




No. You don't have to.



What I was trying

to say out there is

that you're very beautiful.



And I knew that before.



I just want you to know

that I'm not doing this

because you're black.



Yes, you are.



You don't have to lie.






So, uh, before

we get started,



uh, there's a couple

ofthings I'd like to try.



Uh, nothing too weird,

I thinkyou'll agree.



But, um, you know,



ifthere's anything

you had in mind--







maybe you could

tell me before

so we can fit it in.






Don't worry.



You'll bejust fine.



I just wanted

to have an orgasm today.



I'll do my best.

From your children.



Oh, I-- I don't have any.

Oh, uh, those were done

From, uh, day care.



So, you're going

to a party ?




People coming over ?



No. I'm staying here

by myself.



Oh. Then I'll wait here

a minute. Do you mind ?



I just went out

to pick up some things,

and my husband is... somewhere.



I have to get home.



Would you like

a magazine or something ?



Something to eat ?



Don't entertain me.

just do what you were doing.



Candy cane ?



My-- My mother,

shejust threw this

big Christmas dinner.



She wanted us to relive

our happiest moments

as a family.



So she took all this stuff

from our childhood...



and wrapped it up and

gave it to us as gifts.







Yeah, there's, uh, these

oldreport cardshere...



and, um,

awards that I won...



and these

little craft things.




Let me see that.




Oh, yeah, diving.



Yeah. Must have

been my sister's.



I think I had

some ofthese.



Pete Seeger.

That rings a bell.



Yeah, my mother

says I love that.




She sounds nice.



Who ? My mother ?

That she would do all this ?



No, that she

gave you Pete Seeger

when you were a kid.



Oh, well, uh,

I don't want to give you

the wrong impression.



It's not

exactly indicative

of my family.



Actually, we had

this big fight when--



when I told her there

were socialist implications.



To what ? Pete Seeger ?



""Oh, Patrick,

why do you have to go and

spoil everything nice ?""



Oh, I didn't know.

What ?



That he was a socialist.



Oh, well, you know,

folk music.



He had these

sing-along things, right ?

Uh, yeah.



On TV ?



Pete Seeger,

ofthe Weavers.



You might be thinking

of Mitch Miller

or something.

""The streams ofthe mountain

I'm staying here.



By yourself?

Yes. lflcan.



That'snotso hard

to imagine.

Where the fuck are you ?



Look, ifyou need a car,

you can always get one.



Where ?



From-- From anywhere.



Steal one.



[ People Shouting,

[ Line Ringing ]



Stupid cell phones.




Three hours till

[Bells Chiming]



Three hours !



Three more hours.



Hurry up !


Shut up, lady!



Move it.



[KnockingAt Door]



Well, here I am.



I'm a little bit early.

Hope that's not a problem.



No, no, no.

That's perfect. My, uh--

My friend just left.



We have the place

to ourselves ?

That's right.



Come in.



So, this is

your apartment

where you live.



Isn't it nice.



Is it ?

It is.



And what had you

been doing again ?



What do you mean,

before ?



Before. With your life.






well, I--



I finished, uh,

school, finally.



And, uh-- uh, yeah,

I took a couple

ofyears off.



I was going

to med school.



So... I guess

I would have been

a doctor ofsome sort.



Oh, that's wonderful.



I always knew

you had it in you.



Isn't it nice how things

worked out so well ?



And you grew up so... nicely.



You're a handsome man.



Well, thankyou.






Uh, can I get you

something to drink ?



lhave drinks.

Oh, no, I'm fine.




[ Laughs ]



So, Craig, um, you probably

won't want to hear this,



but I saw your stepmother

at the Super Save last week.



And she has met another man

and married him

as you may know.



And she made me promise

that if I ran into you,



I would tell you that

you're welcome, ifyou want,

tojoin their circle.



Their circle ?


Their prayer circle.



They're all meeting

at Mel Lastman Square.



And for the    hours

leading to the end,



they're going to pray

for the souls of humanity.



Ofcourse you've missed

the beginning by now,



but I'm sure

you can join in

wheneveryou come.



Uh-huh. Well, as much

as that sounds like fun--



[ Both Laughing ]



You have your own way

to worship, I guess.



Yeah, I-- I--

I guess I do.



Give me a hug.



[ Moaning ]



I was surprised

by your call.



And happy.



You know,

you were always a favorite.



My favorite student.



You were

a favorite of mine.



Well, I know now.



We should, um,



head to the bedroom.



¢Ü I'm watching you ¢Ü



¢Ü The way you move

your sexy body ¢Ü



¢Ü I'm liking

the things you do ¢Ü



¢Ü The way you move ¢Ü¢Ü



Even when you're

with someone else,

you're still by yourself.



And I don't think

that's pathetic.

I don't think that's sad.



Oh, what about

this one ?

Uh, no. Let's keep going.



But what I do find sad

and what I do

find pathetic...



is people who don't

know themselves or people

who don't like themselves.



And as soon as they hear

that the world is ending,



they rush out and try and

hook up with someone, like it

was closing time at Studio   .



Well, I guess I'm not

the one to talk to.



I mean, I know in my heart

that I'm not in a meaningful

relationship right now.



I'm not with

a woman that I love,

and I can deal with that.



I-- I just feel that now is

not the time to compromise.



There's something to be said

for human companionship.

This one ?



Uh, fine, fine.



Okay, stand back.



No, wait.




I can't drive




Oh, that's all right.

I don't like it much anyways.



I mean, cars are another

big disappointment.



They should have gone

farther than this.



They peaked both

aesthetically and technically

sometime around the mid-'  s,



'   according to my friend,

and then basically no progress.



I mean, we deserve better.

I mean, even the little

things, you know.



Why do they always have

to be shiny ?



Why couldn't they make a car

with a nice matte finish ?



Well, there's something

to be said for

human companionship.



Oh, come on.

I like human beings

as much as the next guy.



Okay, this one, okay ?

This one ?



Yeah, all right.

Here we go.



Madam, your car.



[ Both Exhale ]



So now what ?



Now, we, uh, start it.



Well, I think I understand

where you're coming from.



It might make sense

in your mind, but

I can't really say I agree.



Meaning what ?



Take my life, for example:

how I met my husband.



I never knew him.

We met at a party when

the government closed down.



Three days later

we were married.



That was

like two months ago.



And I had been married

before, once before,



to a guy

from a bakery shop

where I used to work.



So I should have

known better.



But this marriage,

my current marriage,



is the best relationship

I've ever had.



I love him.



I feel like we've lived

a lifetime together.



So I guess I'm one of

those people you hate.



Oh, well,

I didn't mean it that way.



And another thing:

I'm pregnant.



You're going

to have his baby ?



I'm carrying it.

His embryo. My baby.



Do you think

that's immoral ?



Immoral ? Well, no.

None of us can

have children.



Actually, I think

it's kind ofsweet.

I wanted

to know if I could do it.



If I had the power.

And I do.



We could have done

anything together.



I love him, and we're

going to go all the way.

[ Horn Honks ]



Wh-What are you doing ?



Well, um, aren't

there some wires

under this thing...



ifyou break it off ?



You don't know

how to do this, do you ?






No. No,

I have no idea.



Taxi ! Taxi !

[ Horn Honks ]



[ Tires Squealing ]



[ Tires Screeching ]



What the fuck !

You want me to run you over ?

Uh, just--



Hey. Um, thanks

for stopping.



Um, my friend here

needs a, uh, smoke.



- Do you have

a cigarette ?

Uh, right. Menzies.



This is a friend of mine

from high school.



Yeah, absolutely.

The old orange and blue.



- Yeah, right.

Uh, is this your car ?

- [Menzies] You know, uh,



you're lucky

I ran into you today.



Yeah, maybe.

Because I have

two extra tickets...



for the concert tonight

that I would be honored

to give you.



Oh. Great.

So what concert's that ?

The thing downtown ?



You didn't hear ?

It's-- It's my concert.



I finally got my recital.

Tonight,     :   sharp,

Petrolia Hall.



Really ? Well, that's

really prestigious.



We all knew you

had it in you.



We spent a whole day

driving around,

me and my cousin Ernie,



looking for a tux;

mine was ruined.



Showhim the tux,




Uh, finally found one

at Harry Rosen.



Harry Rosen,

ofall places.



Right. Okay, well,

that's the thing.

My friend here needs a lift.




Well, I-- I guess

we could drive her.



But it's

only three blocks.



Right, but she's going

across town.




But ifyou're

finished with the car--



[ Chuckles ]




I-- I need it at least

until the show.



You know, Ernie might

have to run errands

or load equipment in.



You know

how concerts are.




I'd love to help you out

and your friend--



she looks like a movie star--

but I only have one car.




I'm not like

Craig Zwiller.



Well, good luck then.

Break a leg.



Oh, keep them.

In case you're

in the neighborhood.







Patrick, I really

appreciate all your help.



Ah, listen.

My pleasure.







[Buzzing Continues]



Uh, one second.



¢Ül've been watchingyou¢Ü



¢Ü The wayyou move


[Buzzing Continues]



- Yeah ? What is it ?

- Craig, it's me, Patrick.



I have

to askyou a favor.

What is it ? I'm busy.



Let me in.

It's important.




is important today.



Ten minutes.

[ Buzzing ]



S-So what is

all that stuffanyway ?

You have to drag it around ?



Oh, it's

just some stuff

we needed tonight.






My husband

and I are going

to commit suicide.



We're going to kill

each other at midnight.









I guess you really

love him then.



Patrick Wheeler ?

Look at you.



Look like

you're waiting

for the principal.






Madame Carlton.



And what have you

been up to, Patrick ?



[ Speaking French ]



Oh. Um--



[ Speaking French ]



You mean myjob ?

Oui. Bravo.



[ French ]



None were actually built.

Oui, oui.



[ Continuing In French ]



[ French ]



It's the dream that counts.

It's nice that you

can still remember.



[ French ]






Well, French was never

your forte, Craig.




Au revoir, madame.







[ Pushes Button ]



Bon voyage.




Fuck off.




You can't have it.



It's unfair to even ask.

It's not for me.



Allthe more reason.

It was my car first.



Right, and now it's mine.

I bought it.



It's been mine

for over two years.



It's part of my... thing.



Patrick, let's go.

We can't force him,

okay ?



Come on, man.

Do something good.

Fuck offwith that good shit.



Let's go.

I'll find another car.

It's fine.



What are you doing,

planning a road trip

or something ?



'Cause guess what ?

You don't have time.

I told you, it's not about that.



It's not about... utility.



Listen, I'm sorry.

It's important.



I'm sorry we

had to interrupt

your last day. Let's go.



You have two others.



[ Sighs ]

It's a collection.

They're antique cars.



Two old cars

is not a collection.

It's a guy with two old cars.






Take it,






I knew you'd give in.

I wanted to die

a man with three cars.



I'm sorry.

Don't be sorry.

He's obviously fucked.



Thanks a lot,

my dearest friend.



Um, so I'll walkyou

to the car ?



I'm sure

I can find it.



It's hard to miss.

A       lime green,

super ""B"",



overhead cams, duel exhaust.



It was one ofthe first--

Not that you'll need

to look under the hood.



Thankyou very much.


You're welcome.




Are you sure you're

gonna be all right ?



You don't need

any help ?

No. I'd better go.



Oh, no. Um, Patrick,



what are you doing

right now ?



Right now ?

Going home, I guess.



If my husband calls,

tell him I'm coming.







not bad.




Not bad, eh ?

Mrs. Carlton ?



No, l wasreferring

to what's-her-name.



Oh, Sandra.

Yeah, not bad.



Come on.

Don't be modest.

No-- No, I barely know her.



Ha ! Even better,

you dog.



No, she's a stranger.

I helped her find a car.



And that's it ?

What's the matter with you ?



I saw the way

she was looking.



Women these days are,

uh, ripe for the picking.



Well, I don't think

that was an option here.

Mm. Are you kidding me ?



They all wanna go out

with a... bang.



Patrick, when was the last

time you got... some ?



[ Groaning ]



[ Scoffs ]



For one brief moment,

I thought you had actually

forgotten your, uh, tragedy...



look, l'm not complaining.

You don't have to--



and realized that

what is one death

compared to the fact...



that in under two hours

every living soul on Earth

is gonna evaporate.



Yeah, well, lrealize that.

ltjust doesn 't turn me on.

You know ?



lfKaren were here,

she'd wantyou to be

with otherpeople, right ?



If Karen was here ?

No, I don't think so.



But she liked people.

You know what I mean ?



She worked

in a kindergarten,

for fuck sake.






Well, listen,

I appreciate

your concern, but--



It's a question

of perspective.

Living while you can.



And, baby,

it's not too late.



I mean, most people

are probably taken by now.



But if I were you,

I would get on the blower.

Get on the internet.



I mean, that's

what it's there for.

That's why they invented it.



Come here.

I'll show you something.



One thing that this

has proved to me:



You have to take life

in your own hands.



You have to fulfill

yourown destiny.



l'm sure there's things,

Patrick, thatyou feel




Sure, lguess,

but l'mprettymuch

overit now.



Take a look at this.



I tried to ask myself,



""What did I want ?""



What were those experiences

that I had hoped for...



which were now

just passing me by ?



And I made a list.

I made a comprehensive list.



Andthen l went out


to meet thosegoals.



And as you can see,

it wasn't that hard.



""Anal sex.""



[ Chuckling ]

Can you believe it ?



I'd never given it

to a woman up the ass before.



You know ? I'm not afraid

to say it now. It's way

past modesty at this point.






""Black. Chinese.""



""Blind."" Uh-huh.



""Sex outdoors.""



""Sex with a virgin.""



See, it's split

into different categories:



types oflocation,

types ofact,

type ofwoman.



What about bestiality ?

You done that yet ?



Not on the list. It's

just things I wanted to do,

notjust every perversion.



""Coercive sex.""




Within limits.

""Menage a trois.""






Like-- These are things

I really believed in.



Uh, I had to look

in my heart.



Some ofthese things

were hard to achieve.



Some ofthese things

were hard to admit to.



But l'mproudofwhat

l've done. l'mproud

ofwhat l've accomplished.



And-- I mean, I'm not

going to my grave

with any regrets.



And, uh, all this

since yesterday morning ?



Oh, yeah.



[ Laughing ]

No. Two solid months.



And, uh, you know,

it's-- it's not overyet.



I wanna die

having a mutual orgasm.



Oh, well, I better

be going then.



See, that's

a pretty basic fantasy.



I mean, ifyou gotta go--

You might as well

be coming, right ?



Right. Hey, hey, hey, Patrick.

Look, I wasn't trying

to show off...



or trying to make you

feel inadequate.



I was showing you that

as a friend and a buddy.



I was actually trying

to inspire you.









[Man OverP.A.,




[ Chattering ]



One and a half !

just one and a half !



One anda halfhours !



[ Bell Dings ]



[Tires Screeching]



You gonna be okay

out there ?

Yeah, yeah, sure.



It'sjust a couple blocks.




Can you do me one favor

before you go ?




Come in.



[Tires Screeching]



Uh, Patrick,

have a seat.



I was trying to give you

a hint up there by, uh,



showing you the list,

but I guess you don't, um,

read too well, right ?



[ Chuckles ]

Ah, forget it.

What ?



Man, you're stupid.



You wanna have sex ?



That was down

at the bottom ofthe list.



I mean, there were certain acts

that could only be done

with other men.



That-That necessarily

wouldn't include anal sex,



'cause I already

did that, but--



You know,

there are other things.

Right, right, I understand.



Patrick, I like you.

I mean, I always have.

I like you too.



To be perfectly honest,

I never thought ofyou that way.



I mean--

But that idea ofsex...



with other men, you know,



it crossed my mind,

as it has done

with most of us, probably.







here's-here's our chance.



I mean,

you could do worse.



Well, uh, I thought

you had a date.

I do.



So, we don't have

much time.



It's not gonna take

that long.



[ Chuckles ]

Come on.



You've already done this

I don't know

how many times today.



It's gonna take some time.

Look, are you being

judgmental ?



No, no, I'm not.

There's nojudgement here.

I don't have time for that.



No, I'm not.

I'm puttin' myself

on the line here.



And I'm flattered.

I'm moved by it.



Don't fuckin' condescend to me.


I would do it...



ifyou asked me any

other time, I swear, if--



I always thought

I should, you know ?



Ifyou'd given me some time

to prepare, psychologically,



and some time after.



A couple months.



I knew it.

You're a wuss.



It's nothing personal.

It has nothing

to do with you.



I would say the same thing

to a woman.

It'sjust sex.



Today, I just

don't want to risk...



having bad sex today.



I just don't want that

to be the last thing

on my mind.



And you think

l'm fucked ?



But I love you.



And I love you, pal.






[ Chuckling ]







Mercy-fuckyour skinny ass ?

What was I thinking ?



In your dreams, pal.

Get the fuck on home.



Oh, uh, I forgot to mention

I saw Menziesjust around

the corner.



I'm sure he'd be game.

Oh, really ?

Fuck off.



Okay, I will.



See ya.

No, you won't.



Good luck...

Uh, okay.






Tell me your big tragedy.

What tragedy ?



About the girl you loved

who ran away or died.



She died.



It's pretty obvious.



Well, people die all over.



You have to put it

into perspective.

Soon we all will.



Well, it's hard--



It's hard for me to

explain this. You'd

have to meet my family.



But, um--



Well, she taught me

how I could love.



How much.



Which is a lot, actually.

It's-It's surprising.



You'd never believe it,

someone like me, but, um--



This is embarrassing,




It's embarrassing for me

to tell you this,



and to tell her,



but, um--



she-she died,



and then they said

the world would end.



I'm sorry.



She was sick.



Remember when people

got sick...



and died

one at a time ?



It's not your fault.



That she died ?

I know.

That the world is ending.



Yeah, that too.

I know.



I'm not that arrogant.

Tell me more.



I want to love you.



It won't be hard.



[ Sighs ]

Yeah, well,

that's about it.



That's my big story.

It usually does the trick.



Okay, um,
