Low Low (2019) Movie Script

I mean I do this
shit too, but it's like
everybody just wants
to use everybody else
to feel good about themselves.
I think that's what it is
when you have sex.
So you fuck somebody
'cause you're trying to
prove something
or whatever, but...
it doesn't work.
Like, I remember the first
naked man I ever saw.
I was like six or something
and I remember coming
out of my bedroom to get...
I don't know, cereal or
whatever and
this man,
like laying on the couch
and like, I swear, his dick and
everything is just hanging.
'Cause I don't fucking know,
he's laying sideways
or whatever.
So I remember 'cause his
crotch was like white.
I mean like really white.
Whiter than his legs
and stomach and...
I don't know, that just
seemed crazy to me.
So I'm just staring
eating my cereal and
my mom wakes up
and I fucking think I'm
going to get in trouble
but she yells at
the guy instead.
Swear to God.
Fucking woke him up
and kicked his ass out.
I felt ...
You know I felt fucking
bad for him
'cause I know my mom probably
told him to sleep there.
We still have that couch too.
Have you ever seen a girl
naked before, like, in person?
Not really.
It's Benny, right?
You a sophomore, Benny?
Going to be a junior
after summer's over.
You know you can come over here.
Yeah, okay.
We don't have to do anything.
I feel like you're nervous.
Nah, not at all.
What the fuck.
It's hot.
Let's just,
let's just go, let's go.
I can't go, I drove the girls,
I have to wait for them.
- What?
- Nothing.
You can tell me.
Joan said she's going
to be here.
She'll be here,
it's Cherry's party.
Yeah, we'll see.
Ugh, Kimmy got fat.
Hey yo, Willy, we got to go.
- Lana, relax.
- Just come on.
- Lana!
- Just come here.
You said you wanted to talk.
- Hey.
- Tanya's here.
- Tanya?
- Yeah, here.
I'm going to text
you later, okay?
Hey, bitch.
- I told you not to fuck her boyfriend.
- Yeah.
What's wrong with you?
Hey, let's go to Muchas
and get chimichangas.
Muchas is closed.
Willy, Tanya is going
to find you.
Hey, can you put the
bottles down, please?
You're going to get
us pulled over.
Hey, Ryan, you was
fucking that Benny kid?
I let him eat it though.
I knew it.
That's gross.
That's 'cause Cherry's mom
goes to church and shit.
Shut up, she's basically
a virgin too.
Oh, she let that boy put it in.
- Yeah, at Mac's.
- Steve?
That doesn't count,
that was in like six grade.
- Bitch, it counts.
- It was like this.
His dick's got to be bigger
than a tampon to count.
Man, whatever
you were there.
I'm telling you that
shit counts.
You know what,
she's lucky she didn't let me fucking beat her ass.
Look who is here,
all my little chickadees.
Hello, my sweet Candace.
Hey there, momma.
Look how cute you
all are, oh my God
with your halter tops
and your chokers.
Where you all been?
You're all looking so fine.
Yeah, okay.
Most importantly,
who wants a drink?
- I do.
- Mhm.
'Cause look, your cousin,
she brought
a bottle of vodka,
she has a new job.
We're just going to crash, mom.
Hey, Jason.
She's like a
nurse's assistant
which means she's working
beside doctors,
like she's working
with real doctors.
Mom, we're not drinking.
I'm drinking.
Me too.
Then I'm pouring.
- And you, baby girl.
- Yes.
Did you come to say goodbye?
Oh no, no, no, I'm not leaving
until after tomorrow night.
Ah, okay, 'cause she's, uhm...
She, uh...
is going to...
Evergreen College.
Yeah, she's going
to Evergreen College.
- Congratulations.
- Yeah, thank you.
Try this.
I'm good.
You're not going to
have a drink with your mom?
I'm good.
Hey, come on, have a drink.
Yeah, have a drink,
we're all having a drink.
- Fuck.
- Oh.
What the fuck?
Whoa, princess,
like it's vodka,
it's not going to stain, okay?
I'm taking the fucking
exit exam tomorrow, mom,
I'm not trying to get lit.
She didn't graduate.
I was going to go for my
GED, but I got pregnant.
I still graduate if I pass.
But you don't get a ceremony.
Okay, all right,
next word is premonition.
- You got it.
- I don't know.
It's like when you can
see or sense something
before it actually happens.
- Yeah, that's basically it.
- No one asked you.
Why the fuck are you
even going to college?
I'm not going after
my senior year.
Exactly, fuck college.
Uhm, you're going to college.
I am going to community college.
I'm staying in the
motherfucking community.
Don't leave me.
I'm going to be like
three hours away.
Yeah, but you're going
to be in sorority,
a bunch of blonde friends,
names like Emily.
Fucking Angie, yes.
- Briana is stuck up.
- That's the crew.
Charity, Emily, Angie
and Briana.
No, no, she's going
to go by Candace.
Hey, Candace...
White bitches love names
that start with the letter C.
I am only half a white bitch so.
Okay, Ryan, vocab, please.
I'm trying.
Are you going to go to
college if you pass?
Heard that test is hard as fuck.
I don't care about college.
Then why
are you making
such a big deal about passing?
'Cause if I pass, then I get
one step further than she did.
So give me the next word.
You fucking act like her.
Fuck you, quit giving
me shit, I'm thirsty.
The next word is inevitable.
I don't know.
Got fucking marijuana
all over myself.
You're not a good tutor, bruh.
- Shut the fuck up.
- Ima take over.
I thought you were sleeping.
I was just getting some water.
Get me one too, will you?
I was supposed to be
bowling tonight.
Where's my mom?
Passed out.
Ain't it past your bedtime?
I'm not tired.
Yeah, me neither.
I'm never tired.
I'm supposed to have
a job interview tomorrow.
That's cool.
Sylvia wants me to wear a tie.
I look so goddamn
stupid in a tie.
You ever tried it?
What's it do?
Whatever you
want it to do.
I had a friend who went
to Evergreen College.
He ain't done shit.
Oh, shit.
- Get up.
- What time is it?
Get up.
Shut up.
- Fuck you.
- Come on.
- No, no, no, no...
- I want to go back to sleep.
Too bad, get up.
I'm so fucked.
We got to go.
I think he came inside me.
I don't think he wore a condom.
You think or you know?
I don't remember.
You're fucking stupid.
Can't I just use the
Plan B or something?
I don't know,
you're fucking stupid.
- Lana.
- What?
Can you, please, just help me?
Help you?
Yeah, can you just
go get me Plan B?
I don't where to get
a fucking Plan B.
Just go to the pharmacy
or something,
they give it to you.
Why can't you do it?
Fucking summer school.
There's no soap, shit.
They're like 25 bucks.
I'll get you a pack of Reds.
Please, please?
I love you.
Fuck you.
- Out, out.
- Shut up.
- Bye.
- Bye.
Oh hey, Ryan,
you want me to pick you up?
- Hey girls, good morning.
- Hey Mrs. Ellison. - Hey Mrs. Ellison.
Heard about the party last night at the Witoker's house,
you guys go?
- No.
- No, ma'am.
I heard their neighbors
called the cops.
- That's a bummer.
- Yeah.
Hey, I'm still
going to get you
that doctor's note
for last Tuesday.
Okay, and you're going to
be late to class, Willy.
- Bye Mrs. Ellison.
- Bye.
Hey Ryan, can you come
in for a second?
Come on.
I have something for you.
What is it?
letter of recommendation.
I haven't passed the test yet.
I spoke to the Dean of
Admissions at Evergreen.
He's going to look at your
application once you pass.
We'll get your transcript
sent up there.
That sound good?
That's where Candace
is going to college, right?
Look, it's going to work out.
You just got to get your mom's
signature on the FAFSA forms.
Have you given your mom
the forms yet?
Not yet.
Ryan, it's
part of the paperwork,
you just got to do it.
- I know.
- You're going to do it?
Yeah, I will.
Do you have pencils
for the test?
How many?
Just one.
What are you doing?
Look, I'm sorry about
last night, okay?
I just, Tanya showed up
and I was going to--
I don't care about Tanya.
- Look--
- Okay.
You acted like you wanted
to talk and just bounced.
- I know, I know.
- You leave tomorrow.
I know.
So what are we doing?
I'm sorry, okay?
It's just
I have a lot on my mind
and like I still have
a shit ton to do
and then my mom just wants
to hang out with me--
That shit is whatever, that
shit doesn't matter, okay?
- Doesn't matter?
- Doesn't matter.
Sure, yeah, totally.
You know, it's whatever, it's
just my fucking life, right?
I don't know if you know this,
but for the past couple of days,
I've just been like
steadily freaking out inside
and, you know, like all I can
think is that I want
to be an engineer,
I want to be an engineer,
- like I want to make things--
- I know.
I know, but do you know
any engineers?
I don't know, no?
I don't fucking know what
an engineer even fucking does.
Fucking exactly right?
So it's like
I sound stupid because
it's what I want to do,
but I don't know how to do it
and then like I start to get
fucking tight and I just like--
Hey, hey, hey.
- I don't--
- Hey, hey, hey.
It's okay, baby.
Stay an extra day with me.
I can't, I can't stay.
I have to go, I have to go
tomorrow, like I have to.
It's just a day.
It's not.
- No, baby I can't though.
- Baby.
- No, no, fuck come on.
- Baby?
- What? I'm-
- What the fuck?
- I'm trying to talk to you.
- Now you want to talk.
- I want to talk, I've been trying to talk to you.
- Not at the party.
- Fuck.
- What the fuck?
I'm trying to tell you something important to me like it's important to me.
- So fucking tell me.
- Okay, all right, fine I will.
I have to go and I have to be there, right?
And I'm going to be there
- and I'm not going to have anybody with me.
- So I'm going to come visit you.
No you can't because I need to be there
and I can't be here and you're here.
What are you trying to say?
Say it.
I want a break.
What the fuck?
Okay, last day.
Get your books out.
Next in line.
What can I help you with.
Uh, so I ran out
of birth control.
Oh, what's the last name,
I can get that refilled.
No it's, I need,
the morning after?
We have Plan B One Step.
I need to ask you a
couple of questions,
make sure it's safe for you.
You have 90 minutes
to complete the exam.
Wait until I give direction
to turn your packet over.
Turn the fuck around.
Can I go to the bathroom?
What is your normal form
of contraception?
And how many hours since you
last had unprotected sex?
I don't, it was last night.
So like 12 hours?
Uh, yeah, how much is it?
Have you
had any health issues,
pain or burning
during urination,
- abdominal pain pain during or after sex?
- No, can I pay?
These questions are
for your safety.
I'm fine, can I pay?
Turn your packet over and begin.
It is 76 dollars.
Do you want
to use cash or card?
All right, okay, I think
I'm going to just have to,
I'm going to come back.
Tanya Briggs,
- what do you think you're doing?
We were just going
to the bathroom.
Tanya, you really want detention
- today of all days?
- No.
So, what were you doing?
Okay, she's a fucking ho,
all right?
Tanya, language.
- No, she--
- She pulled my hair.
- No one touched your ratchet-y ass hair.
- Yes you did.
Oh my God, okay I was
sitting in class
and she fucking starts
turning around
and grilling me and shit.
So what?
So she kicked my chair.
No I didn't, she
kicked my chair.
Stop, just stop.
Is something funny?
Yeah, I didn't think so.
Back to class.
Both of you.
Let's go.
Come on.
All right.
What's wrong?
Just get in the car.
but look at what I got you.
They didn't have the nasty
cherry ones that you like.
- Did you just pocket these?
- What?
- Did you just pocket these?
- Bitch, I can't hear you.
I said did you just
pocket these?
No, I bought them.
You can email me
essay corrections.
If you're taking my
class in the fall,
I suggest you do
the corrections.
Enjoy the rest of your summer.
I don't think
you should feel bad
just 'cause he crying about it.
He wasn't crying about it.
I'm fucking with you.
I know.
He did cry though.
Hey Candace.
You coming
to the keg party tonight?
Yeah, we'll be there.
Can't wait.
Okay, see you tonight.
You are so mean.
Fuck him.
Babyface looking ass.
Ryan, how'd it go?
Talk to me.
The fuck?
- Shit, shit.
- Hey, Willy.
I didn't do anything.
Shit. Shit!
The fuck?
Get the fuck up.
I didn't fucking do anything.
What do you think the fuck you're doing?
You're a fucking skank.
Stop it.
Get off!
Ryan, stop, stop, stop.
Come on.
Get back to class.
Show's over.
Tell me what happened.
One at a time.
You, go
Oh, okay.
Well, I was in the parking lot
uhm, with Lana.
Which one's Lana?
Okay, keep going.
Okay, so yeah, we're by my car
and then we see Willy--
- I'm Willy.
- Great.
Yeah okay, so we see Willy
and then Tanya--
And Tanya was trying to
kick my ass last night too.
Let's just stick
to today, okay girls?
Okay yeah, so Tanya
comes out of nowhere
and she just starts
punching her.
- Punching who?
- Me, she fucking punched me.
Watch the mouth.
So she's punching her?
- Yeah, she just starts punching her.
- And she kicked me too.
- Yep, I saw her kick Willy.
- So now she's kicking people?
Yeah, and she pulled my hair,
ask Mrs. Ellison.
So she's punching and
kicking Willy and, uhm, Ryan,
Ryan comes in and,
uh, she's like.
Ryan tried to stop it, she
jumped in to try to stop it
and then Tanya punched her too.
So Tanya's
just hitting everybody?
Ryan beat
Tanya Briggs pretty bad.
It doesn't matter.
Ryan didn't throw
the first punch.
Fuck man, Sylvia's going
to fucking kill her.
It ain't my fault.
I didn't say it was.
Fuck, that was fucked.
I know, did
you see the pee?
It was like she was
fucking dead man.
Oh, I got your money.
The lady asked a bunch
of fucking questions too.
Like what?
Shit, I don't remember.
Fucking Cory.
You told her?
- How short are you?
- 50 bucks.
- 51 bucks and why don't you just ask Cory for it?
- No.
Okay let's go.
Fuck! Stop mom.
I swear to God,
I swear to God.
They're going to sue me.
They're not coming after you,
you're a child.
They're coming after me, did
you even think about that?
I am not losing everything
because of you.
I'm not losing my apartment.
I want you out.
I want you gone,
I want you to leave.
I will go down to
the courthouse,
and I will get the papers,
and I will talk to a judge.
Okay, okay,
come on let's go.
Cory's not even home.
I promise you he's home,
we're getting your 50 bucks.
51 bucks.
It's fine, I don't need
the fucking money.
What do you mean, no,
no, no, no, no.
He busted in you,
he can pay for it.
What all of a sudden you two are
a couple of fucking feminists?
Excuse me, you know it's
the right thing.
Are you doing it or am I?
- Double time boo-boo, let's go.
- Love you.
- Hey.
- Hey, Cory.
What's going on?
Uh, not much, Ryan just beat
the shit out of Tanya.
- Oh.

You going to
the kickback tonight?
For sure, yeah, yeah.
Okay, you know if you

bro's going to let me
borrow his truck.
- Okay, yeah, I just wanted to ask--
- I can pick you up you know,
or he's going to get some beers
and some hard A too, you know.
Uh... Hey, I was
just wondering if you...
What's up?
- I, uhm...
- Everything okay?
Uh, no.
I, uh--
It's just that did you--
uhm, did you come inside me
last night?
It's not
a big deal, I just--
I don't really remember
and uhm, yeah, so...
Yeah, I mean, I think, maybe.
I didn't have a condom so.
No, I know.
Uhm, are you on birth control
or anything?
Not really, I mean, no.
But I was going to
get the Plan B.
Yeah, yeah, that's great.
Yeah, yeah it is, but I don't
exactly have the cash, so...
How much do you need?
I just need like 50 bucks, or
51, 51 would be awesome, so.
Yeah, I don't--
I don't think I have that.
Okay, no, I just
wanted to check.
Sorry, I think I've got
like you know, 10 on me.
It's okay.
- Hold on, one second.
- Okay, uhm... Jesus.
No, this is great, thank you.
It's okay, thank you, really.
But I will see you tonight.
For sure, yeah.
- Bye.
- Bye.
What did he say?
- He said sorry.
- And?
He gave me 10 bucks.
- Ten bucks?
- Fuck that.
No, no.
Can we just go now, it's fine.
What do you mean?
I mean he said he's broke.
Oh he said he's--
did he say he was broke?
He lives in the fucking Heights,
they all got money here.
Just let it fucking go,
let's go.
- Nope.
- Lana, what are you doing?
- Get him, Lana.
- Lana, don't.
- Is Cory home?
- No.
- Okay, thank you.
- No, no, no, no.
Do you
want to leave a message?
- No.
- Yes.
Could you tell him he should
wear a condom
the next time he decides to
come inside a drunk girl?
What did you say?
You know what, thank you
so much for your time.
- Have a great day, bye!
- Lovely fucking day.
Let's go, let's go, let's go.
I got to go to work,
you can walk from here.
OK, relax, it's never fucking
mattered before.
You didn't have to do that.
Oh chill out,
little Cory will talk
his way out of that shit.
Okay, whose got this?
I'm broke.
I got this shit.
Fuck, dude, this is stupid,
I fucking told you.
I said we shouldn't
shoulder tap in the Heights,
we got a meter running.
Go ahead then.
I did it last night.
I'm not allowed
in there, so I'm out.
It's got to be you, honey.
- Come on, Cherry.
- No, no I'm doing it.
Come on. Yeah, come on, this is
our last night together.
No, because
I have never stolen
anything in my life and I'm
not going to start that now.
- That's exactly why you should be the one to do it.
- No, no I'm not.
You're leaving here
tomorrow, so.
Exactly, it doesn't
even matter for you.
It does matter to me,
it's important to me.
I'm not going to do it, I
would do anything for you guys
I'm just not going
to steal for you.
If you love us
then you'll do it.
Shit, it's taking too long.
No, no, stop.
You okay?
Yeah, just.
Did you get in a fight?
- Yeah.
- Did you win?
Let me see.
Your hand, let me see your hand.
Come over here.
Let's see what kind of
damage you did here, bruiser.
That hurt?
- Yeah.
- I bet.
All right, hang tight.
Frozen peas, does the trick
every time.
You know what,
I got to be honest,
I don't know if I'm doing
the right thing here.
I hope this is right.
Seems right, right?
You have that job interview?
Tie and everything.
What was it for?
Don't matter, I didn't want it.
Shit, shit.
She's a fucking child,
she's a god damn child.
Get out, get out!
She's a child.
She's a child.
Oh my God, she's just a child.
So what you going to do?
I don't know, I'm probably
not even pregnant.
Probably not.
Cory's probably got
fucking retarded sperm.
Yeah, they probably got
fucking lost or something.
They just bounced around
in your pussy
and fucking gave up.
I swear, I don't even
remember that shit.
You should have made
him pay, he got money.
Don't matter.
It does if you end up pregnant
with a fucking retarded
Cory baby.
Fuck that, I'd rather
fucking kill myself.
All right, you ready?
Fuck, I have no aim.
- Okay...
- Okay. Last try.
Ready, one, two, three.
- Heck, yeah!
- Wait, what are you celebrating? I hit it.
Fuck you, I fucking hit that.
Fuck you, bitch.
- Come here, I fucking hit it.
- Oh yeah, what now, huh?
Fuck you, I hit it.
No, who really hit that?
Stop, Lana stop.
- Who hit the bottle?
- You're hurting me.
Are you a dyke?
- Lana, what the fuck was that?
- Nothing.
- What the fuck are you doing?
- Nothing.
- What the fuck were you just doing?
- Nothing.
Just take me home.
You forgot your backpack,
you want to go?
Shit man, I still can't believe
this is actually happening.
Well, it is.
I know.
Do you want to wear this?
So, do you want to talk
about what happened?
Dude, you like clobbered the
fuck out of Tanya's face,
like, God you punched her
so fucking hard
she peed on herself,
like I was standing
all the way at my car
and then I saw--
I didn't pass that test
anyway, so fuck it.
I don't want to talk about it.
Did you get the score already?
So how do you know?
Okay, okay.
We don't have to talk about it.
Do you want to know
what I did today?
- I just stole two cases of beer.
- What?
I stole two cases of beer,
like I walked right in,
I grabbed two cases, I ran past
the guy who worked there
and I jumped in the car and then
Lana just drove fucking off.
So then, what's going on?
Nothing, Cherry.
I don't believe you.
Okay, well...
- Dude, fuck off.
- You fuck off.
- No, tell me, talk to me.
- Cherry, he fucked me.
- What?
- Okay, Cherry, fuck.
I did it.
What do you mean,
what did you do?
She kicked me out.
She said I had to leave,
I had to get emancipated
or some shit.
Who your mom-- your mom?
And I went home.
And Jason was there.
He helped me with my hand and,
and then he was on--
I don't fucking know I
was just fucking numb.
And then his pants were down
and I'm on the couch and--
I couldn't-- I didn't
fucking know, I was--
And then she came in and saw us.
It's not like they were
going to get married
or anything either,
he's a guy, you know?
He's just another fucking guy.
Are you...
I mean, are you okay?
I want to do something.
- Cherry.
- No listen.
I have an idea, I want
to do something, okay?
- Before we go to this party.
- Cherry, I don't--
- Listen, no, no, listen, listen.
- I'm really not,
- I don't feel like even leaving now.
- I hear you.
I hear you, I just wanted--
- Fine.
- Okay.
Okay, just trust me on this.
Grab that fucking hat.
Just follow me, okay?
I'm taking this.
- Cherry.
- Shut up.
Just trust me, okay.
You're going to like it.
Okay, come on.
What are we doing?
Just, hold on.
- Okay, stay here.
- Why?
Just stand here and put this on.
Just put it on.
Dear admissions committee,
as a counselor at a low
income magnet school
at a dilapidated fourth
plane district
of Vancouver, Washington,
I have seen my fair share
of troubled students.
Children plunging head first
down disastrous paths
despite my best efforts
to steer them
toward a future that
involves steady employment,
a craft or trade in some
cases, maybe even college.
I found Ryan Reese amongst
predictably bleak circumstances.
- Cherry, don't--
- Let me just--
Let me just read this, okay?
If we were judged by the
worst things we had done,
then we would be probably
all be considered bad people.
If you looked at Ryan's
transcript or,
she's says rap sheet,
then you might be inclined
to dismiss her.
Another person in a long list
that has attempted to
exclude this young woman
from one of her many
quiet goals.
What you don't see
in that transcript
is a vulnerable young woman.
Vulnerable to the demands of
a single parent household.
Vulnerable to
the psychological distress
that accompanies a black eye
and she has had many.
Vulnerable to a school district
that offers a fraction
of the tools
that a student who
is blessed enough
to live just
five miles east has.
She is vulnerable,
not because she is weak.
Her vulnerability
is her strength.
Despite the obstacles
stacked against her,
she arrives at the front doors
of East Vancouver High
and she fights for herself.
She fights for something better.
While many students will
arrive unbridled
to your university,
anxious to partake
in the celebration to
discover one's self,
this woman will be
striving for a better life.
And what could possibly be
more honorable than that?
I write this as
a proud faculty member,
reminding myself that
she is the reason
that I come to school each day.
She gives me a better life,
more fulfilled life.
And I know that she can do
that for your college also.
Sincerely, Doctor Ellison.
Ryan Reese, please
come accept your diploma.
- I love you.
- I love you.
Now do you want to go to
this shit hole party, or?
Dude, you fucked that bitch up.
I couldn't fucking believe it.
She's like crying and like
pissing all over herself.
It wasn't like that.
Bull fucking shit, Ryan,
I saw that.
Hey, hey are you with Lana?
Wait, I thought that
she brought you here.
Let's just take shots,
come, come, come.
- Oh my God, do you want this?
- I don't want it.
God, fuck.
- What?
- My mom.
You want to go?
No just, I'll be back.
- Hey, uhm, do you have that lipstick?
- Oh yeah.
- You good?
- Yeah, can I leave?
Okay, I'm going
to go in the morning.
What time.
Like eight.
Okay, have fun.
Oh my God.
- You good?
- Mhm.
- Yeah, I heard something.
- What?
I heard you kicked
the shit out of Tanya.
Yeah, you know she used to be friends with my older sister, right?
I remember when I was like 12,
she came into my room
while I was sleeping
- and just like started pulling my hair like a psycho.
- What the fuck?
Yeah, I mean she could
probably beat my ass, so
I'm glad you did it.
You get in trouble?
So what about college?
I don't know.
Well, I guess you don't have to.
My brother didn't.
He didn't know what he
really wanted to do
so he just joined the army.
Said the army was full of people
who didn't know what
they wanted to do.
Just a bunch of like
dipshits and stuff.
Well, I don't want
to go in the army.
Nah, that's not what I'm saying.
It's all right.
You know I probably should
go in the fucking army.
I don't know.
I thought about doing like hairdressing school or something.
I just think it would be
better than working at a
Wendy's or something.
I'm keeping it a secret though.
Because it's just for me.
So you got secrets now.
I'll tell you another one.
All right.
I've never kissed anyone.
I mean I've never just
kissed someone, like
just a kiss.
Hey Willy, it's me, I'm just
trying to figure out
where you are, so
give me a call back, okay?
What are you doing?
It's okay, yeah, you're sexy.
- Shh...
- You're a freak dude.
What did you do,
what did you do?
I just want to see, just
a second, just a second.
No, no, no way.
So, I think maybe these need
to come off a little bit.
- Wait.
- What?
You said you wanted to break up,
you said you want to move on and go do other things or.
Yeah. But I want to.
I'm going to put it
on for you, okay?
Well like, I got to
get going anyway.
My mom gave me a curfew.
She's over at that
Olive Garden on Milplane.
Wait, seriously?
- Yeah.
- I fucking love that place.
I went there for
Homecoming once,
I swear I had like 30
of those breadsticks.
Yeah, I always make
her bring me those.
- So good.
- And the Chicken Alfredo.
I can walk with you.
Unless you don't want me to.
Nah, it's cool.
I'm just letting you know
though it's like two miles away.
You going to be good?
- I think so.
- You sure?
Hey, have you seen Willy?
Get up, come on.
Get up.
What the fuck?
- Shit!
- Yo bitch.
Don't fucking touch me.
Hey, lift your hips up
for me, okay?
- I'm sorry.
- No, no, no I'm sorry.
Lana, relax we weren't
doing anything.
Lana, Lana.
Fuck you.
Almost there, almost
there, step.
Good, step.
Step, step.
Good, good, good, good, okay.
It's okay, we're
going home, okay?
Okay, head down.
Here we go.
This is nice.
Yeah, my mom does
commercial real estate actually.
So I'm gonna... go.
Where you going to go?
I don't know.
Like, you're just
going to roam the streets, or?
No, stupid I'm not just
going to roam the streets.
I'm going to...
- I don't know just--
- 'Cause look, my mom's inside
- and I can sneak you in right here through the side door.
- That's okay.
Look, just give me like one minute.
Just go right here, and I can sneak you in.
- Benny.
- Look, just give me one minute, one minute.
She doesn't come in here?
I love you.
You don't have to say
it back, I just--
I want you to know.
you don't.
- I do.
- No.
You're leaving.
Well yeah, 'cause
I can't stay here.
You know, I tried to
take the GED test?
Shit is just not for me.
I know.
Doesn't matter.
You could always take it again.
I'm not going to.
Can I sleep here tonight?
Okay, just sit here.
- I'm thirsty.
- Okay, I'll be right back.
Here, take this.
Face up.
You good?
Come sleep up here with me.
Are you sure your mom
never comes in here?
Nah, she always knocks
if she does.
So does she like wear
suits to work, or what?
My mom?
Sometimes, why?
I don't know.
You know, you can sleep
on my bed if you want,
I don't care.
Where will you sleep?
Yo, right on the floor.
I got a sleeping bag.
Damn, this shit is comfortable.
Hey, would you mind
throwing me like a pillow
or something?
So did you have
Mrs. Lane for English?
For like a minute.
But I had to switch out though,
- I kept falling asleep in her class.
- Yeah, me too.
Honestly, I could
fall asleep anywhere.
Will you give me a kiss?
- Look what I got you.
- My god!
What did you bring me?
Oh, shit, like that?
Dude, what the fuck.
Why would you not get a bag?
- This was more fun.
- I don't know.
Okay, give me one second.
You know whose asshole moved to make us get up this early, right?
Yes, I do.
Are you okay?
- I puked.
- Oh, yeah?
Everything go good
last night?
Uhm... Yeah, it went good.
Guys, I-- I gotta go.
Well, okay.
I love you, guys.
- I love you.
- I love you.
Hey, uhm...
- Please.
- I'm fine.
- Okay, I gotta go.
- Okay.
Hey, be safe!
Goodbye! Bye.
I was thinking about
cousin Nikola.
I couldn't sleep last night, 'cause I was...
thinking so much about her.
I don't know how
she just got so...
used up by life.
She used to come around
and ask for 10, 20 bucks.
Like I got any money.
She just wanted to smoke it up.
And she was getting beat up
so bad by that Robert guy.
But she wouldn't leave him.
And then she lost her job
at the cement company.
Do you remeber that?
I didn't even think you could
be a woman and do that job.
But it turns out all you had to do was take a truck driving test and...
and pour in cement.
And then I thought about us.
How maybe...
Maybe you've got to go through
all the basd stuff first.
You know, they--
Hit a rock bottom.
Hit this like low.
Only it's not low,
it's like low low.
Cause then maybe after that
all the good stuff happens.
You know?
'Cause like Nikola,
she's got a baby now.
And she's with this great guy.
I don't remember
his name, but...
And she's got that nursing
assistents job, and...
She hit bottom first.
Miss Ellison...
came by.
Told her I'd give you this.
