- 1. - Punch. Punch it in.
- Okay. Right.
- 2. Okay. Let's, first of all,
refresh the screen here...
- 3. all right, and go in a format ruler.
- 4. - There.
- All right.
- 5. - Now, file?
- 6. Right.
- 7. - And it's in memory?
- 8. And...
- 9. mark this down
in the prefix file codes.
- 10. - Prefix code. Right.
- 11. Good. Yeah, you got it.
Another week, you'll have it down.
- 12. - It's temporary anyway.
- 13. I said, it's temporary anyway.
- 14. I do not intend to be stuck doing this
for the rest of my life.
- 15. - Don't tell Mr. Digman I said that.
- 16. Because what I really wanna do is,
I'd really like to get into publishing.
- 17. There aren't any openings right now.
- 18. But what I would love to do is just
create a magazine, my own magazine...
- 19. which would be, like,
a forum for writers and intellectuals...
- 20. who can't get into print
anywhere else, who could, you know...
- 21. I'm not into editing or trying
to reach a particular audience.
- 22. Getting it out there,
they would get some momentum going...
- 23. and, you know, do something with...
- 24. - With, you know...
- Excuse me, one second.
- 25. I love that book.
- 26. I love that book.
- 27. Yeah. Oh, yeah.
- 28. I think Miller's really great.
- 29. "This is not a book.
This is a prolonged insult.
- 30. A gob of spit in the face of art.
- 31. A kick in the pants to truth,
beauty, God... "
- 32. Something like that.
- 33. That's very good.
- 34. That's all I remember.
- 35. I've read this before. I mean, I don't...
I'm just rereading it.
- 36. I don't reread books that often...
- 37. but this one's my favorite.
- 38. I like it better than Capricorn
- 39. or Sexus.
- 40. You know, he used to kiss himself
after he ate a good meal.
- 41. It's mostly...
- 42. Let me ask you. Does that cashier
seem a little weird to you?
- 43. He keeps making
these strange movements.
- 44. God!
- 45. I think he's just waiting
to be discovered.
- 46. Do you want another coffee?
- 47. No. I'm gonna head over
to my friend's house.
- 48. - Which way you headed?
- Downtown, SoHo.
- 49. Oh, nice. Nice. A loft?
- 50. Yeah. She's a sculptress.
- 51. Lately, she's been making these
plaster-of-Paris bagels and cream cheese.
- 52. Really.
- 53. She's trying to sell them as
paperweights. You wanna buy one?
- 54. Paperweight?
- 55. Yeah, I would. How much are they?
- 56. I don't know.
- 57. If you think you might be interested,
her number's 243-3460.
- 58. 243-3460. Okay.
- 59. - Her name is Kiki Bridges.
- Kiki Bridges. Okay.
- 60. - Nice talking to you.
- Yeah. Great talking to you.
- 61. Excuse me. Can I borrow your pen?
- 62. Thank you.
- 63. - Yeah?
- Yes. Is Kiki Bridges there, please?
- 64. - This is her.
- 65. You don't know me. I'm calling because
I'm interested in your paperweights.
- 66. - Yeah?
- You're the sculptress, right?
- 67. Uh-huh.
- 68. A girl I met tonight at a coffee shop
told me that she was staying with you...
- 69. Oh, you mean Marcy.
- 70. - I don't know. She didn't say her name.
- Hold on. I'll get her.
- 71. She told me about these paperweights
and the work that you do.
- 72. Hello?
- 73. - Hello? Marcy?
- 74. Hi, this is Paul Hackett.
We met earlier tonight.
- 75. Hi. Sure, I remember.
- 76. - How are you?
- All right. I'm all right.
- 77. I just got in...
- 78. and I opened up my book
and saw your number and...
- 79. Good.
- 80. I'm glad you called.
- 81. So...
- 82. So do you work near that coffee shop
or live in the neighborhood or...?
- 83. No, I was just over
at a good friend of mine's.
- 84. Actually, we had a terrible argument.
- 85. That's too bad.
- 86. Yeah, it is.
- 87. I'm sure, whatever it was,
I'm sure you'll straighten it out.
- 88. You think so?
Do you think I should try to make up?
- 89. Well, I don't know, I mean...
You know... Maybe you're better off.
- 90. You know, I don't know what the
circumstances were, but sometimes...
- 91. You know, I don't... It's not even...
It's not my business.
- 92. - Maybe you should come over, Paul.
- 93. - Maybe you should come on over.
- Sure. Sure. Now?
- 94. Yeah. Why not?
- 95. Where to?
- 96. I'm at 28 Howard Street.
Near the corner of Crosby.
- 97. It's in SoHo.
- 98. - The name on the buzzer is Franklin.
- Not Bridges?
- 99. Bridges is crossed out.
- 100. Just press the buzzer.
- 101. Okay. About 45 minutes?
- 102. - Yeah, great. I'll see you later.
- All right.
- 103. - Paul?
- 104. I'm really glad you called.
- 105. Me too. Me too.
- 106. Okay. I'll see you later.
- 107. - Bye.
- 108. - I've only got a 20. Can you break it?
- Yeah, sure. No problem.
- 109. No hurry.
- 110. Oh, shit!
- 111. Excuse me, I just...
Damn! Oh, my God!
- 112. Excuse me.
- 113. My money flew out the window.
- 114. Okay, that'll be 6.50.
- 115. Listen, my money
just flew out the window.
- 116. I put it in this cradle...
- 117. and you went so fast around
that corner that I don't have any...
- 118. What I'm saying is, I don't have
any money. I'm really sorry.
- 119. Look, let me show you something.
- 120. Look, that was... I had $20.
- 121. And now I don't have any more.
- 122. I'm really sorry.
- 123. Franklin. Franklin.
- 124. Franklin.
- 125. Franklin.
- 126. - Are you Paul?
- 127. Here, catch.
- 128. Hi.
- 129. - Your keys.
- You can just put them on the table.
- 130. I like that.
- 131. - Do you?
- Yeah. Very much.
- 132. It reminds me of that
Edvard Munch painting.
- 133. What's it, The Shriek?
- 134. - The Scream.
- The Scream. Right.
- 135. Yeah.
- 136. Sort of like a three-dimensional version
of that painting.
- 137. Is Marcy here?
- 138. She had to go out
to the all-night drugstore.
- 139. - Is she all right?
- It's under control.
- 140. This place is huge.
- 141. Do you share it with anyone?
- 142. Hey, would you like to
work on this for a while?
- 143. - I could use a break.
- 144. It's not hard.
- 145. What are you talking about?
This is yours.
- 146. - How would I know what you want?
- Look, it's real easy.
- 147. Just take some of this stuff
and slap it on like this.
- 148. All right, I'm coming.
- 149. Yeah?
- 150. Of course he's here.
You invited him.
- 151. That's your problem, Marcy.
I'm not gonna tell him.
- 152. I'm not telling him.
- 153. I can't talk any louder.
- 154. All right, hurry up.
- 155. - How's it going?
- It's great.
- 156. I'm just giving him a shoulder.
- 157. Look what you did to your shirt.
- 158. Oh, good.
- 159. - Give it to me, I'll throw it in the wash.
- No, that's all right.
- 160. It'll only take 20 minutes.
- 161. That's okay.
- 162. Come on.
- 163. You wanna look nice
for your big date, don't you?
- 164. All right.
- 165. - Twenty minutes, huh?
- 166. - Put this on while you're waiting.
- 167. You do that all day
and your own shoulders get pretty sore.
- 168. Want a massage?
- 169. - You read my mind. Would you?
- 170. I'm not too good at this.
- 171. Just know a few basic moves.
- 172. Just make it hurt
and you're on the right track.
- 173. That's all I know.
- 174. Okay.
- 175. - You have a great body.
- 176. Not a lot of scars.
- 177. That's true.
- 178. Never occurred to me.
- 179. I mean, some women I know
are covered with them head to toe.
- 180. Not me.
- 181. - Scars?
- 182. Horrible, ugly scars.
- 183. I'm just telling you, now.
- 184. I don't know.
- 185. I know, when I was a kid...
- 186. I had to have my tonsils taken out.
- 187. And after the operation...
- 188. they didn't have enough room
- 189. So they had to put me
in the burn ward.
- 190. But before they wheeled me in...
- 191. this nurse gave me...
- 192. this blindfold to put on...
- 193. and she told me never to take it off.
- 194. If I did...
- 195. they'd have to do the operation
all over again.
- 196. I didn't understand what my tonsils
had to do with my eyes either.
- 197. But anyway...
- 198. that night...
- 199. at least I think it was night...
- 200. I had reached up...
- 201. to untie the blindfold...
- 202. and...
- 203. I saw...
- 204. Hello again.
- 205. - Sorry about this. I was detained.
- Don't worry about it.
- 206. - So how are you?
- 207. Well, I made it.
You wouldn't... I'm here.
- 208. Uh...
- 209. Let's go into my room
and get away from all this mess.
- 210. Sure.
- 211. Your roommate was just
dipping all day.
- 212. Put me to work.
- 213. I feel like a real SoHo artist.
- 214. What did you do to her?
- 215. I didn't do anything to her.
She was asleep.
- 216. I mean, she just... She was tired.
- 217. - What do you mean, what did I do?
- Easy, easy. It was an innocent question.
- 218. Look, I'm gonna take a quick shower.
I'll be right back, okay?
- 219. Sure. Yeah, I mean, I think a shower
would probably do you good.
- 220. You had a tough day.
- 221. I knew there was something special
- 222. I hope you don't have to get up early
tomorrow or anything.
- 223. No. No, I don't.
- 224. Because I think you're somebody
I can really talk to.
- 225. And tonight I feel like...
- 226. I feel like I'm gonna let loose
- 227. I feel like...
- 228. I feel like something incredible
is really gonna happen here.
- 229. I feel so excited
and I don't know why.
- 230. I feel it.
- 231. I'm glad you came.
- 232. Me too.
- 233. If you want a joint,
there's some in there.
- 234. Uh... No. Maybe later.
- 235. - Hello?
- Is Marcy there?
- 236. She can't come to the phone right now.
May I take a message?
- 237. - Could you just tell her Greg called?
- 238. Is she back?
- 239. Uh-huh.
- 240. - That felt good.
- 241. - You want me to close the window?
- No, I got it.
- 242. Boy! Whoever used to live here
must have been a bodybuilder.
- 243. Jesus.
- 244. Who's Franklin?
The buzzer, when I came over...
- 245. Hey, I thought I told you
to stay on the bed.
- 246. Right.
- 247. I'm gonna ask you to wait here
just one more minute. I promise.
- 248. - All right.
- You're the best.
- 249. - What, Paul?
- 250. What did you say?
- 251. I didn't say anything.
- 252. You didn't just say something
- 253. No, I didn't say anything.
- 254. I could have sworn I thought
I heard you say something in here.
- 255. Well...
- 256. I didn't.
- 257. I don't think I'll be able
to sleep at all tonight.
- 258. What's that smell? Is that linseed?
- 259. - It's skin moisturizer. I have dry skin.
- 260. Feels pretty soft to me.
- 261. Please.
- 262. - What's the matter?
- 263. I think you're very nice, I do.
Could we just talk a little while?
- 264. Of course. Sure.
- 265. - Greg called.
- 266. How did that little faggot find out
I was staying here tonight?
- 267. Probably wants to whine to me
about his latest boyfriend.
- 268. Friends like that
are hard to deal with sometimes.
- 269. Well, that's what friends are for.
- 270. - I know that, but I meant...
- I just can't deal with it tonight.
- 271. Does he want me to call him back?
- 272. He didn't say.
- 273. Well...
- 274. Since you answered the phone...
- 275. he probably figured I was...
- 276. I'm scared.
- 277. Why don't you just tell me
- 278. I was raped once.
- 279. As a matter of fact,
it happened right here in this room.
- 280. I lived here once.
- 281. He came in through there,
off the fire escape.
- 282. He held a knife to my throat
- 283. if I made any noise
he'd cut my tongue out.
- 284. He tied me to the bed.
- 285. He took his time. Six hours.
- 286. My God.
- 287. Was he...
- 288. Did they get this guy?
- 289. No.
- 290. Actually, it was a boyfriend of mine.
- 291. To tell you the truth,
I slept through most of it.
- 292. So there you are.
- 293. You wanna get some coffee?
I feel like getting out of here.
- 294. Absolutely.
Say, is there a place open this late?
- 295. Sure, it's not even 2 yet.
- 296. - Ready?
- 297. Can I ask you something?
I've wanted to ask you this all night.
- 298. - Who's Franklin?
- 299. Franklin is my husband.
- 300. Really.
- 301. Is that his loft, then?
- 302. He owns it, yes.
- 303. - Do you live with him?
- No. He's in Turkey.
- 304. I stayed with my husband for three days.
I was very young when I got married.
- 305. My husband was a movie freak.
- 306. Actually, he was particularly obsessed
with one movie:
- 307. The Wizard of Oz.
- 308. He talked about it constantly.
- 309. I thought it was cute at first.
- 310. On our wedding night, I was a virgin.
- 311. When we made love...
You've seen the film, haven't you?
- 312. The Wizard of Oz? Yeah, I've seen it.
- 313. Well, when we made love...
- 314. whenever he...
- 315. you know, when he came...
- 316. he would just...
- 317. scream out "Surrender Dorothy!"
- 318. - That's all. Just "Surrender Dorothy!"
- 319. I know. Instead of moaning or saying
"Oh, God" or something normal like that.
- 320. I mean, it was pretty creepy.
And I told him I thought so...
- 321. but he just couldn't stop.
He just couldn't stop.
- 322. He...
- 323. He said he didn't even realize
it was happening.
- 324. He just couldn't stop.
- 325. So I just broke the whole thing off.
- 326. I'm sorry.
- 327. I guess I'm really putting you
through the mill tonight.
- 328. It's okay. I'm used to it.
- 329. You know, I still love him very much.
- 330. In fact, we write each other
- 331. Naturally, I don't like to talk about it.
- 332. - Could we have the check?
- It's on the house.
- 333. - Really?
- Sure, what the hell.
- 334. Different rules apply this late,
know what I mean? It's like after-hours.
- 335. - Thanks, Peter.
- Sure, Marcy. Have a good evening.
- 336. - No...
- It's okay. It's...
- 337. Do you want me to go?
- 338. The pill makes me sick.
- 339. Everything makes you sick, Marcy.
- 340. The guys gave it to me.
- 341. Oh, my...
- 342. God! Oh...
- 343. Well...
- 344. here we are.
- 345. - So how about that joint?
- 346. - Good idea.
- 347. What type of pot is this?
- 348. It's Colombian.
- 349. - That's a lie.
- 350. This isn't Colombian.
I don't even think it's pot.
- 351. The guy who sold it to me
said it was.
- 352. Well, the guy who sold it to you is a liar.
So are you. That's shit.
- 353. Don't get upset.
I just won't buy it from him anymore.
- 354. That's horseshit.
- 355. Are you all right?
- 356. Where are those plaster-of-Paris
- 357. I mean, that's what
I came down here for.
- 358. That's not entirely true.
I came to see you...
- 359. but where are the paperweights?
That's what I wanna see now.
- 360. - What's the matter?
- I said, I wanna see a plaster-of-Paris...
- 361. bagel and cream cheese paperweight.
Now, cough it up.
- 362. - Right now?
- Yes, right now.
- 363. They're in Kiki's bedroom.
- 364. Then get them.
Because as we sit here chatting...
- 365. there are papers flying
around my apartment...
- 366. because I don't have anything
to hold them down with.
- 367. Fine.
- 368. I don't know, Kiki.
- 369. Sorry about that.
- 370. - It's really coming down, huh?
- You bet.
- 371. - Here you go.
- The fare is a dollar and a half.
- 372. - What?
- Fare went up to $ 1.50 as of midnight.
- 373. You're kidding.
- 374. Look...
- 375. - I've got 97 cents.
- 376. - It's raining like mad out there.
- 377. Would you just give me a break?
I really just wanna go home.
- 378. I'm sorry, I can't do that.
I could lose my job.
- 379. Who would know, exactly?
- 380. I could go to a party, get drunk,
talk to someone. Who knows?
- 381. Would you give me
a goddamn token?
- 382. No, goddamn it! I can't give you a token.
Those tokens are $ 1.50.
- 383. I can't sell them for 97 cents.
We'd lose money that way.
- 384. All right, there's the train. Come on,
give me a token! Come on!
- 385. - Can I help you?
- Yeah, I wanted to take the Express.
- 386. I mean, it was the other way around.
- 387. - I'm talking to you.
- I know. I'm sorry.
- 388. I've never done that.
I don't know what came over me.
- 389. The fares went up and I have 97 cents.
- 390. I won't even take the train.
I won't even take it. I'm sorry.
- 391. That's my train.
- 392. That's the one I wanted. Thanks a lot.
- 393. Must be a full moon out there.
- 394. Can I get you something?
- 395. I have 97 cents.
- 396. That's not very much, is it?
- 397. No. No, it's not.
- 398. Do I have to order something?
I mean, can I just sit here for a minute?
- 399. - Yes. Sure.
- 400. Any time.
- 401. What'll it be?
- 402. I don't want anything.
I just wanna sit here.
- 403. Is that okay?
- 404. - Sure.
- 405. But if you're looking to make friends,
don't get your hopes up.
- 406. Looks like a pretty slow night.
- 407. Yeah. Well...
- 408. - It is late.
- Not for this place.
- 409. Things are usually hopping
- 410. That's all right, really.
I just wanted to get in out of the rain.
- 411. I just hope it lets up soon.
- 412. - I really just wanna go home.
- Aren't the subways running?
- 413. But I happen to be broke
at the moment, see.
- 414. Christ. I'll give you the money. Poor guy.
- 415. Really? I can't tell you how much
that would mean to me.
- 416. - Oh, Christ. Not another one.
- What? Another what?
- 417. Guy lives in the same building as me.
He's been here three times tonight...
- 418. to tell me about three burglaries
in this neighborhood, all tonight.
- 419. - Shit.
- 420. What?
- 421. I'm just trying to remember if I turned
my burglar alarm on at home tonight.
- 422. Sometimes I forget.
- 423. Oh, well, anyway.
- 424. That's all right. It's all right.
- 425. That's all right. Forget it.
- 426. I'd like to open the register.
What if I got a rush now?
- 427. Yeah, I see your point.
- 428. What about a key?
Do you have a key?
- 429. - Yeah, but I keep it up in my apartment.
- Damn. That's too bad.
- 430. Listen, I can't go anywhere,
but how'd you like to do me a favor?
- 431. - For subway fare?
- If you don't mind.
- 432. - You got it.
- I'm at 158 Spring Street, top floor.
- 433. Wait a minute.
What am I doing?
- 434. Right.
- 435. You don't know me,
I don't know you.
- 436. I might rip you off, right?
Is that what you're thinking?
- 437. I'm not gonna rip you off. I'm not.
- 438. With what I've been through tonight...
- 439. the last thing I wanna do
is steal from somebody.
- 440. I really just wanna get home.
- 441. Look, here.
- 442. Here are my keys.
This is my deposit, okay?
- 443. If I don't come back, these are yours.
Everything I own is yours.
- 444. I just wanna get home. Keep them.
- 445. Okay, all right. Good. Here.
- 446. The keys for the register
are over the light switch, on a hook.
- 447. The alarm is underneath
the light switch.
- 448. Make sure you see a beeping red light.
- 449. - Beeping red light. 158 Spring.
- Top floor.
- 450. I'll be right back.
- 451. Oh, no.
- 452. Oh, God.
- 453. Oh, Jesus! God.
- 454. What's come from Phil?
I don't wanna read it.
- 455. I'm jealous.
He even sounded tan on the phone.
- 456. I wonder if this is
our local friendly burglar.
- 457. Did you get what
you wanted or did we spoil your fun?
- 458. - Who are you? You don't live here.
- I'm a friend of Tom's.
- 459. Tom who?
There are three Toms living here.
- 460. Look, guys, I'm not a burglar.
So get your hands off me.
- 461. - He asked you which Tom.
- I don't know Tom's last name.
- 462. He's on the top floor.
How many Toms are there?
- 463. How'd you get in here?
- 464. He gave me the keys. Look. See this?
- 465. He gave me the keys and I let myself in.
- 466. Sorry, but there have been
about eight break-ins here just last week.
- 467. Okay, I'm sorry, all right.
I didn't know that.
- 468. Hey, we gonna hit RadioShack
- 469. Wait till next week.
New models come in.
- 470. Hey! Where'd you get that?
- 471. Kiki! God, what happened?
- 472. Just throw down the keys.
Throw it. Be careful.
- 473. That's right. Give it a good throw.
There you go.
- 474. Hold on, Kiki.
- 475. Bastards!
- 476. What have they done?
- 477. What are these guys, sailors?
Look at this.
- 478. It's so elaborate.
Must've taken them hours.
- 479. - How'd they get in?
- How did who get in?
- 480. - The burglars.
- The burglars? What burglars?
- 481. The ones who took your sculpture
and your TV set.
- 482. God.
- 483. - Neil and Pepe?
- 484. It was Neil and Pepe.
They're friends of mine.
- 485. I just sold them my television
for 300 bucks.
- 486. How did you get ahold of my sculpture?
- 487. - This the guy?
- 488. I'm Horst.
- 489. I'm Paul. Hi.
- 490. That was rude of you before, Paul.
- 491. You really ought to be
ashamed of yourself.
- 492. I am.
- 493. I don't know what could have
come over me.
- 494. Lack of discipline.
- 495. Possibly.
- 496. Well, it's not too late to finish
what you started.
- 497. Marcy, it's Paul.
- 498. Hi.
- 499. Listen, I owe you an apology.
- 500. There's just no excuse for leaving
the way I did. And I'm sorry.
- 501. You know, I just figured...
- 502. it's not working out between us...
- 503. and, hell, I'll never see you again.
You know, there's just no excuse.
- 504. I think I just got a little spooked,
- 505. With that story about your husband
and your boyfriend.
- 506. I mean, that was really weird.
- 507. What was that all about?
- 508. And I gathered there's something...
- 509. wrong, or you have
some burns or something...
- 510. and I just couldn't handle that.
- 511. I'm sorry.
I don't know what happened to me.
- 512. I don't know. Maybe the timing's
just off or something...
- 513. but I think I just better go.
- 514. Okay?
- 515. Marcy?
- 516. Marcy.
- 517. What...
- 518. Oh, Jesus! Marcy.
- 519. Oh, God! Breathe. Breathe.
- 520. Kiki! Kiki! Come on.
- 521. Oh, Jesus!
- 522. God...!
- 523. Think.
- 524. Ow! Kiki! Kiki!
- 525. Kiki! Horst!
- 526. "Paul and Marcy, Horst and I
went to Club Berlin for drinks.
- 527. Join us if you feel up to it.
Corner West Broadway and Grand.
- 528. See you! Kiki. "
- 529. Shit.
- 530. Operator, give me the police.
- 531. Yes, I wanna report a death.
- 532. Oh, God.
- 533. Oh, no.
- 534. Hey, it's me.
I did it. I quit my job.
- 535. What do you want me to do?
- 536. Let's go have a drink. Celebrate.
Pier Three is open.
- 537. I don't know what your problem is...
- 538. but I've gotta get over to that bar,
get my keys, so I can get home.
- 539. Oh, look at this.
- 540. Huh.
- 541. Now what?
- 542. This is incredible.
- 543. Where the hell is he?
- 544. You know, I live across the street.
Would you like a TV dinner?
- 545. Oh, wait a minute! Neil, Pepe!
Wait a minute! I didn't know!
- 546. It's that dude again.
Get out of here.
- 547. I didn't know.
- 548. I didn't know.
- 549. I've had enough, God.
- 550. My place?
- 551. You like The Monkees?
- 552. What's your name?
- 553. Julie.
- 554. I'm Paul.
- 555. Rough night, huh, Paul?
- 556. You look depressed.
- 557. I came downtown tonight...
- 558. Oh, God.
- 559. I didn't even know...
I didn't even know this girl.
- 560. Oh, God.
- 561. I didn't even know her.
- 562. Hang on.
- 563. Is that better?
- 564. "Chelsea Morning. "
- 565. Go on. What is it? Talk to me.
- 566. I'm fine, really. I'm gonna be
out of your way in just a sec.
- 567. I'm just waiting for them
to open up downstairs.
- 568. I'll just get my keys and go home.
- 569. Boy, oh, boy. Oh, boy.
- 570. Just let it go, honey.
Tell me your problems.
- 571. I don't think so.
- 572. Paul, lighten up. What is this?
- 573. This doom and gloom and...
Be loosey-goosey. Come on.
- 574. - What are you talking about?
- Come on, tell me your problems.
- 575. Where the hell is he?
- 576. - What the hell time is it?
- It's very late.
- 577. Jesus.
- 578. So you really hate that job, huh?
- 579. Yeah. I hate both my jobs, you know?
- 580. Oh, yeah? What else do you do?
- 581. Well, I work in
the Xerox shop downstairs.
- 582. Downstairs?
- 583. Yeah. We're right on top of it.
- 584. I've got the keys. Wanna see it?
- 585. No, thanks. I've had about
enough excitement for one night.
- 586. It's a lousy job...
- 587. but I can get free copies
whenever I want to.
- 588. Gee whiz.
- 589. What is that? "Gee whiz"?
- 590. I mean, you humoring me?
- 591. I don't have to take that shit.
What is it with people today?
- 592. You can't say anything
without getting a smart answer.
- 593. You have to be so goddamn careful
about everything you say.
- 594. You think I don't notice?
I know what's going on.
- 595. I overhear the customers
at the Xerox shop making fun of me.
- 596. I didn't mean anything by that.
- 597. I mean, it was raining outside
and I invited you to come into my home.
- 598. I didn't have to do that, now, did I?
- 599. First of all, you're not stupid.
- 600. Look, I have trouble figuring out
the tax on checks. So what?
- 601. I mean, 8 percent is a bitch!
- 602. So I make a few mistakes.
Sue me! Call your lawyers!
- 603. Okay, come on. I'm sorry.
I didn't mean it.
- 604. - Wanna sit down? Come on.
- 605. Oh, I'm sorry I was rude before.
I really am.
- 606. Okay, no more crying. Please.
- 607. What a night.
- 608. Hey, Paul?
- 609. Do you like my hairdo?
- 610. Yes. Yes, I do.
- 611. Then why don't you touch it?
- 612. - I don't wanna mess it up.
- You won't.
- 613. - You want me to?
- 614. Okay.
- 615. - I hear him.
- 616. That's him. I hear him.
I hear him. No, it's okay.
- 617. Thank God he's there. I can go home.
- 618. - Ow! Oh!
- Excuse me. What's the matter?
- 619. Oh. Well, nothing, I just...
- 620. You know, I really got the feeling...
- 621. that you kind of liked me, no?
- 622. You're not gonna leave now, not after
I brought you in out of the rain, are you?
- 623. All right. All right. I'm going to...
- 624. Here's what I'll do. I'll...
- 625. I'm gonna go to the bar,
give your boss back his keys.
- 626. Then I'm gonna get my keys,
then I'll be back, okay?
- 627. - Should take all of two minutes.
- Yeah, sure.
- 628. Julie, two minutes. Okay?
- 629. Well, well, what happened to you?
- 630. Long, difficult story.
- 631. Honestly, when you didn't show up for
so long, I figured you did rob me blind.
- 632. I had to close up here to check it out.
A neighbor told me he did see you leave.
- 633. But he wasn't too sure
about you either.
- 634. But here you are.
- 635. I tell you, you had me worried.
- 636. How about a drink?
Sure look like you could use one.
- 637. You don't happen to have any powerful
aphrodisiacs back there, do you?
- 638. She won't put out?
- 639. No, it's not for her. It's for me.
- 640. I seem to have gotten myself
- 641. one of your cocktail waitresses.
- 642. - Miss Beehive, 1965.
- 643. Don't even ask me how.
- 644. So take off.
What's she gonna do, kill herself?
- 645. Terminal.
- 646. What's up, Rich?
- 647. You know.
- 648. You know, you're right. Just give me
my keys. I'm gonna go home.
- 649. What's the matter?
- 650. My...
- 651. My girlfriend...
- 652. just killed herself a little while ago.
- 653. - Took some sleeping pills.
- Oh, Jesus Christ.
- 654. - Oh, no.
- 655. We had an argument, I told her
she had to get out of the apartment...
- 656. It's my fault.
- 657. God.
- 658. Marcy. Marcy, Marcy, Marcy,
Marcy, Marcy. Marcy, Marcy, Marcy!
- 659. Marcy!
- 660. I...
- 661. I don't know what to say. I just...
- 662. - I don't know what to say.
- What can you say?
- 663. After all, it wasn't your fault.
- 664. I'm going to...
I'll be right back, okay? Try to stay calm.
- 665. - Oh...
- You all right?
- 666. Why, yes.
- 667. - You said two minutes, though.
- I know. I know.
- 668. - I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
- Did you miss me?
- 669. Like I've never missed anyone in my
whole life, is how much I missed you.
- 670. - Really?
- I can't believe how much I missed you.
- 671. - I really did miss you, I'm not...
- That's very sweet.
- 672. I'm gonna give you a present.
- 673. Don't do that.
That's really not necessary at all.
- 674. I mean, I've only known you,
what, an hour?
- 675. No, no, no. You said that you were
gonna come back and you did.
- 676. In these days,
that is something to be commended...
- 677. and rewarded.
- 678. - Do you know what this is?
- 679. This is a plaster-of-Paris
bagel and cream cheese paperweight.
- 680. I bought it from a local artist.
- 681. Kiki Bridges.
Did you ever hear of her?
- 682. Julie...
- 683. I promised I would come back
and I did.
- 684. Now I really do have to go.
- 685. I gotta sleep.
You understand that, don't you?
- 686. And I promise I'm gonna
see you again.
- 687. I will. Okay?
- 688. You all right?
- 689. Why do you keep asking me that? What's
with you, are you nuts or something?
- 690. Let's exchange phone numbers.
Wanna do that?
- 691. - Phone numbers?
- Yeah, come on.
- 692. It's a great idea. I'll write it on this.
Okay. What's your number?
- 693. My number is 5-4433.
Very easy to remember.
- 694. - 5-4433.
- 695. That's not enough numbers, but okay.
- 696. 5-4433.
- 697. - Okay.
- No, KL5-4433.
- 698. I'm sorry. Okay.
Okay. Sorry, sorry.
- 699. - Oh, God.
- 700. Get that away from me. Jesus!
- 701. Oh, really?
- 702. You're gonna be sorry,
because I am going to get you!
- 703. Oh, you're kidding me. Not again.
- 704. What is this?
- 705. Oh, God...
- 706. Hey, let's knock off for tonight, okay?
My back's killing me.
- 707. Come on. Let's look for my statue, man.
It's gotta be around here someplace.
- 708. That makes me sick. That statue was
the first thing in my life I ever bought.
- 709. See what happens when
you pay for stuff?
- 710. Somebody rips it off. Shit.
- 711. It's gotta be around here someplace.
Let's cruise down Mercer Street.
- 712. Tom?
- 713. Tom, it's Paul.
- 714. I was afraid to go in.
You don't wanna confront one of them.
- 715. Some of them are drugged up and
you don't know if they have a knife...
- 716. I wasn't out an hour.
- 717. I come in, the cameras are gone,
the lenses are gone, the whole thing...
- 718. - Did you call your insurance agent?
- I don't have insurance, besides...
- 719. It's that guy again. Hey!
- 720. Don't let him get away.
- 721. - You know where he went?
- This way.
- 722. That's him.
- 723. Come on, get your
grubby face out of here. Get out.
- 724. - Hey, fella, where you going?
- 725. You didn't just come use the bathroom?
The bathroom's for customers only.
- 726. I'm gonna order something, really.
I just wanna use your bathroom, okay?
- 727. Hey, didn't you hear me?
- 728. Come on, you goddamn mutt,
get out of here and stay out of here.
- 729. Menu's on the table.
Make yourself comfortable.
- 730. - I set it up for you.
- 731. Thank you.
- 732. Oh...
- 733. "Paul and Marcy, Horst and I
went to Club Berlin for drinks. "
- 734. I'm just gonna go put a quarter
in the meter at my car.
- 735. Let's see.
I'll have a burger, medium rare, coffee.
- 736. May I enter?
- 737. I can't let you in at the moment.
- 738. Will it be possible to be admitted...
- 739. at a more convenient time
for the club?
- 740. It is possible, but not at the moment.
- 741. God.
- 742. If you're so drawn to it,
you can try and force your way in.
- 743. Got any money?
- 744. Yes, I have money.
Is that what you want? Money?
- 745. Why didn't you just ask that
in the first place, man?
- 746. Here. It's not much,
but it's all I've got.
- 747. I'll take it because I don't want you
to feel you left anything untried.
- 748. You keep the quarter.
- 749. You'll still have to wait
a few minutes.
- 750. Hey, Mott.
- 751. Why doesn't he have to wait?
- 752. Tonight is Mohawk night.
If you had a Mohawk, you could go in.
- 753. Come on. We're both adults.
- 754. Why don't you just let me in!
- 755. - Do you really wanna go inside?
- 756. It's very important.
I've got people in there expecting me.
- 757. Why don't you just let me in.
- 758. You're sure?
- 759. Yes, I'm sure.
- 760. Coming through, coming through.
- 761. - To your left and straight ahead.
- 762. Right through there.
It's straight through there.
- 763. - Mohawk this guy.
- With pleasure.
- 764. Kiki! Kiki! Horst!
- 765. Kiki! Horst!
- 766. Marcy's dead!
Neil and Pepe are crooks!
- 767. I'm broke! Help!
- 768. No! Don't!
- 769. God, what have they done to me?
- 770. God. I'll kill those barbarians.
- 771. Bald. God! Get me a gun.
- 772. Hello? Hello?
- 773. Taxi. Taxi.
- 774. Come here.
- 775. - God, I'm so sorry.
- It's all right.
- 776. Oh, this is great.
Look, I got the money back.
- 777. Isn't that great?
Now you can take me uptown.
- 778. Great. I'll be right back.
- 779. - See how you like it!
- No, don't! No!
- 780. Oh, no.
- 781. No, no, no.
- 782. I don't believe it. Did you see that?
- 783. - Look at your arm. It's bleeding.
- Oh, great.
- 784. I feel terrible.
- 785. Look, why don't you come with me
and I'll get you a bandage.
- 786. - No, thank you. It's not that serious.
- No, I insist.
- 787. No...
- 788. - Do you have a telephone?
- 789. I'm sorry. I just...
- 790. You wouldn't believe
what I've been through tonight.
- 791. You just wouldn't believe it.
- 792. Oh... I'm an ice cream vendor.
- 793. What?
- 794. I...
- 795. You misunderstood.
I didn't ask what you did.
- 796. I said, "You wouldn't believe
what I've been through tonight. "
- 797. It's not boring.
- 798. And I have my own Mister Softee truck.
It's not. It's not boring.
- 799. Oh...
- 800. Also, you need a Class Four
New York chauffeur's license.
- 801. Guess who has one.
Got it on my own.
- 802. Manhattan, please. Could I have
the number of Peter Patzak?
- 803. That's P-A-T-Z-A-K.
- 804. - Need a pencil?
- 805. On Mulberry Street.
- 806. Thank you.
- 807. Five, eight, one, nine...
- 808. six...
- 809. two.
- 810. That was funny.
That was funny.
- 811. Patzak, please. P-A-T-Z-A-K
on Mulberry Street in Manhattan.
- 812. Thank you.
- 813. - Five, eight, six, two...
- 814. Nine, three, eight, zero.
- 815. Now I have forgotten the number.
- 816. What is wrong with you?
Are you all right?
- 817. I have had a terrible, terrible night.
Do you understand?
- 818. I'm just trying to entertain you.
- 819. I don't want any entertainment!
And I'm sorry I did that. I'm sorry.
- 820. I'm under... Oh, God.
- 821. I'm unable to get home tonight,
you know? I can't get home.
- 822. And I'm trying desperately...
- 823. to find a place I can stay tonight.
Just sleep. All I wanna do sleep.
- 824. I could stay on Spring Street,
but I don't want to.
- 825. - Why not?
- Why not what?
- 826. Why aren't you there?
On Spring Street. Go.
- 827. Because the bartender who lives there,
his girlfriend killed herself tonight.
- 828. - And I think it's because of me.
- That's out, then.
- 829. That's right, that's out.
That is out.
- 830. That is not a possibility.
- 831. So if you'd just let me
make this phone call...
- 832. you'd be doing me such a favor,
you really would.
- 833. - Please.
- That can wait.
- 834. I hurt your arm and now
I want to dress your arm, please.
- 835. All right.
- 836. - How'd they get there?
- 837. - I was dipping papier-mâché earlier.
- What is this?
- 838. "A man was torn limb from limb...
- 839. by an irate mob last night...
- 840. in the fashionable SoHo area
- 841. Police are having difficulty identifying
the man because no form of ID...
- 842. was found on his shredded clothing. "
- 843. "And his entire face was pummeled
completely beyond recognition... "
- 844. - Forget that.
- 845. Can't handle that right now.
- 846. What does a guy have to do
to get his face pummeled?
- 847. - Jesus! Why does that hurt so much?
- It's infected.
- 848. - Stop touching it!
- I want...
- 849. Stop touching it!
- 850. - I know, I'll burn it off.
- No. You're not gonna...
- 851. I just need matches.
I'll go ask a neighbor.
- 852. - No, lady, no!
- My name is Gail!
- 853. Lady, no!
- 854. No matches.
That's enough, now.
- 855. Where are you going?
- 856. I'm going home.
I'm walking home now.
- 857. - How far is home?
- East 91st Street.
- 858. East 91st, are you kidding?
- 859. Listen, I like you
and I don't know why...
- 860. Why don't I give you a ride
in my Mister Softee truck?
- 861. How does that sound?
- 862. - Where's the truck?
- Right around the corner.
- 863. Well, come on.
- 864. Come on.
- 865. - What's the matter?
- Shut up.
- 866. - What?
- Shut up.
- 867. What's wrong?
- 868. - You're dead, pal.
- I'm what?
- 869. Gail.
- 870. Gail, what are you doing?
- 871. What...? Gail? What is that?
Are you still giving me a lift home?
- 872. What are you looking at me
like that for?
- 873. That's him! Over there,
with the whistle. That's him! Get him!
- 874. Oh, shit!
- 875. Help! Help! Call the police!
- 876. I went to school with your son!
- 877. I mean, Mom, it's me!
I can't... Oh, goddamn it!
- 878. You're so stupid!
Come on! Cut it out!
- 879. I'll probably get blamed for that.
- 880. What do you want from me?
What have I done?
- 881. I'm just a word processor,
- 882. Excuse me. Hi.
- 883. I wonder, would you...
- 884. It's okay.
- 885. Would you help me?
Would you please help me?
- 886. What do you want me to do?
- 887. Where do you live?
Can you take me home?
- 888. Because there's certain things
that I, you know, will not do.
- 889. I'm telling you in advance.
- 890. Oh...
- 891. Oh...
- 892. Uh...
- 893. I really have to tell you something
before we start. Uh...
- 894. I have never done this
with a man before.
- 895. I'm a little bit nervous.
- 896. Listen, can I...
- 897. Can I use your telephone?
- 898. - Sure, it's...
- I see it. That's great.
- 899. - Operator.
- Get me the police, please. Right away.
- 900. Just a minute.
- 901. - Twelfth Precinct, Fitzgerald.
- Yes, officer. Thank God. Okay.
- 902. My name is Paul Hackett. I'm in SoHo.
I don't know the exact location.
- 903. I'm being persecuted
by a vigilante mob.
- 904. I'm sure you're aware of their actions.
- 905. Now, I have every reason in the world to
believe that my life is in serious danger.
- 906. Now, evidently,
there's a series of robberies...
- 907. that are being conducted
in this neighborhood.
- 908. - Just get some sleep, buddy.
- 909. Hello? Hello?
- 910. Hello?
- 911. Oh, wow! Oh, wow!
- 912. I don't believe you...
- 913. Oh, my...
- 914. I'm sorry. I wonder...
- 915. could I just crash out on
your couch for a couple hours?
- 916. I am just beat.
- 917. - Why don't you just go home.
- 918. I've been asking myself that one
all night long.
- 919. So? So, what happened? Why can't you?
- 920. All right.
- 921. I met this girl tonight, okay,
in a coffee shop.
- 922. She gave me her phone number.
So when I got home, I gave her a call.
- 923. She said to come over. In the cab,
all my money flew out the window.
- 924. Then I got to know this girl
and I didn't get along with her well.
- 925. It didn't work out, so I left.
- 926. I tried to take a subway tonight.
The fare went up. Did you know that?
- 927. - Yes.
- You knew that?
- 928. I didn't know anything about that.
- 929. I haven't got enough money to get home
until I meet a bartender...
- 930. a nice guy who wanted
to lend me money.
- 931. I mean, he really wanted
to give me the money...
- 932. I mean, they'd actually purchased
this piece of work here.
- 933. I didn't know anything about that.
- 934. She's also pissed off at me,
and for this I don't blame her...
- 935. for the way I treated her friend.
- 936. So I march in there to apologize,
but she'd already killed herself.
- 937. I was too late.
- 938. And he was about to give me the money
when all of a sudden his phone rang.
- 939. His girlfriend killed herself tonight.
- 940. Is that a coincidence?
No, because the same girl...
- 941. who I came downtown to see
was dead too.
- 942. That's because they're the same person.
They're both dead.
- 943. I couldn't believe that.
- 944. He didn't know that I came down to,
you know... his girlfriend...
- 945. because he would have taken my face
and he would have smashed it.
- 946. Luckily, there was this girl, who saw
everything, who let me use her phone.
- 947. Really nice about it too.
Let me use the phone. That was it.
- 948. Just use it. Pick it up and put it down.
Up and down.
- 949. Now she's the one in the ice cream truck
who's trying to kill me!
- 950. They're all trying to kill me.
I just wanted to leave my apartment...
- 951. maybe meet a nice girl.
And now I've gotta die for it!
- 952. That's the girl. That is Julie.
That's her. Look.
- 953. Julie! Julie, it's me!
- 954. What are you doing? Come here.
- 955. Oh, God. That's the one.
That's the one. Unbelievable.
- 956. Oh.
- 957. Oh.
- 958. No.
- 959. Oh...
- 960. Hey!
- 961. What's the matter with you?
- 962. You've gotta help me.
You've gotta help me.
- 963. Get ahold of yourself, okay?
- 964. - Can he get a glass of water?
- You gotta tell them.
- 965. Tell them it's not my fault.
I didn't do it. I didn't do it.
- 966. You've gotta make things
clearer to me.
- 967. I just got back from the morgue.
I'm not thinking too straight.
- 968. Listen. There's an angry mob
that wants to kill me...
- 969. because they think
I'm robbing apartments.
- 970. I had keys to your apartment,
I didn't rob you.
- 971. I could've robbed you blind,
but I didn't. I'm not a thief.
- 972. I'm not a thief. Right?
- 973. I'm not a thief.
- 974. All right. All right. Stay here.
- 975. Wait! Where are you going?
- 976. - To get your keys.
- 977. Thank you. Thank you.
Go ahead. I'll be right here.
- 978. - Just relax.
- I will, I will.
- 979. Thanks.
- 980. He's in here!
- 981. What can I do for you?
- 982. - Why so empty?
- Invitation only.
- 983. Then where is everybody?
- 984. Beats me. Must have stayed home.
- 985. Who's she?
- 986. Oh, that's June. She's always here.
Usually nobody notices her.
- 987. If you're interested, you better hurry.
I'm closing up in a few minutes.
- 988. Excuse me, miss. I...
- 989. I couldn't help noticing you
and I wondered...
- 990. would you...
- 991. care to...
- 992. join me for a drink?
- 993. Just talking?
- 994. I'm having a really...
- 995. really bad night...
- 996. and I can't seem to find anyone...
- 997. who just will sit with me for just...
- 998. Without yelling at me
or something, you know?
- 999. I obviously wouldn't approach you
in this state...
- 1000. were I not so...
- 1001. unusually...
- 1002. intrigued.
- 1003. Well.
- 1004. There.
- 1005. I bared my soul to you.
- 1006. May I?
- 1007. Why are you doing this?
- 1008. You flirt with me...
- 1009. you share your cigarette with me...
- 1010. you dance with me.
- 1011. You're nice to me.
- 1012. Why are you doing this?
- 1013. I want...
- 1014. - to live.
- Okay, sorry, folks. Closing up.
- 1015. - I just...
- Time to go home.
- 1016. want...
- 1017. to live.
- 1018. Live.
- 1019. Come downstairs with me, Paul.
- 1020. Come on.
- 1021. - They got in!
- What is it?
- 1022. I have to tell you, I'm in big trouble.
Those people up there wanna kill me.
- 1023. - Is there a way out?
- 1024. - Is there a way out?
- 1025. - What is this?
- No, don't go in there!
- 1026. - Oh, what's this?
- No, don't touch that!
- 1027. No, don't touch that vat!
- 1028. Oh, God.
- 1029. - Come with me, Paul.
- 1030. Come with me. Come on.
- 1031. You're closed, you wanna go home.
It's only gonna take a minute.
- 1032. - I'm telling you no one's in here.
- You cannot reason with this man.
- 1033. Don't move, I don't wanna
stick you with this stuff. Okay.
- 1034. I just gotta put this piece here.
- 1035. Hold up! No! Hold up!
- 1036. Do you at all sense the pressure here?
- 1037. This is very good for the pores.
- 1038. Come on, it's a total search!
- 1039. All right.
- 1040. Good. No, no, no.
- 1041. Now, pick this up.
- 1042. - Hey.
- Where's this lead to?
- 1043. No. It's a private apartment.
- 1044. - Fine. Knock on the door.
- Wait, wait.
- 1045. I'll knock.
- 1046. - June. June?
- Yeah, what is it?
- 1047. Sorry. Some people
wanna look around your place.
- 1048. - Something about a robbery.
- I'm working! Can't you see that?
- 1049. I'm sorry...
- 1050. Excuse me.
- 1051. Excuse me. Have you seen this guy?
- 1052. Doesn't look so hard.
- 1053. - Is there another way out of here?
- No. That's it.
- 1054. All right, we're moving out!
- 1055. Come on.
- 1056. Look, we're sorry we disturbed you,
lady, but we were sure that...
- 1057. Okay, let's boot it!
- 1058. Wasting time here.
- 1059. It's okay. They're gone.
- 1060. Great. Great.
- 1061. Okay, will you let me
out of this thing now?
- 1062. No, you're safe like this.
They could still come back.
- 1063. Look, lady, you've been great.
Terrific. But can you let me out of here...?
- 1064. Listen, you know,
I'm involved in this too now.
- 1065. I gotta keep working on you.
They could still come back.
- 1066. Lady, let me out of this thing. Now.
- 1067. - Do you hear me? Let me out...
- Shh! Shh!
- 1068. Okay, that's it.
- 1069. I just wanna go upstairs
and check if they're still there.
- 1070. Be right back.
- 1071. Didn't I tell you, man?
Check it out.
- 1072. - Check it out.
- Man, this is junk.
- 1073. What are you talking about?
This is antiques, man. This is old.
- 1074. It's plastic. Let's call it a night, man.
We got enough stuff already.
- 1075. It's my sculpture!
- 1076. Hey, man, be careful with it. All right.
- 1077. Man, is it worth taking this thing?
- 1078. What, are you crazy, man? This is art.
- 1079. Art sure is ugly, man.
- 1080. Yeah, that's how much you know.
The uglier the art, the more it's worth.
- 1081. - This must be worth a fortune.
- That's right.
- 1082. - It's by that famous guy, Segal.
- 1083. You see him on the Carson Show.
Plays the banjo all the time.
- 1084. I never watch Carson.
- 1085. Yeah, well, that's how much
you know about art.
- 1086. I don't know, man.
I'd take a stereo any day.
- 1087. Yeah, what do you know, man?
A stereo's a stereo. Art is forever.
