My dear Charlie, When you get' out... you're going to feel free as a bird.
There is not much more a man could want.
Fuck all, I mean, who would disagree?
I bet you'd love a good meal for all these years you spent not able to eat some lobster.
You did right... by letting me right the wrong that Chester is doing.
He's the one that needs to be punished.
To me, it can't get more unfair.
He killed your spirit Charlie.
Take heart though, his time's up...
I'd place money on it', if I could.
But you have me to get you started out.
Whatever ever you're think how you feel in leavin' that cage, get ready for surprises.
Here it is almost as crazy as there...
Soon you will see yourself, ' but you have me to get you started out.
J' Man don't stand a chance.
J' In a one sided romance...
J' Most lovers are tha-a-a-.
J' The rest just lose their minds.
J' I hear voices... fiah-suss su su su... l' whoa-sus sus su...
J' -suss su su 5a... J' -suss su. - -...
J' I hear the foot' tracks... .1 J' Ha cha ch ch...
J' I found the gas. Whoa...
J' I'm so sad with regret,
J' 'Cause lyin? Been happy yet.
J' And I don't expect to be...
J' Not in the way love treats me.
J' I hear those voices again.
J' Thirty years I tell you J' I need them.
J' Whoa! J' Wha su su su.
J' Why you can even J' hear the foot' tracks.
Sir... a friend told me I might be able to rent a room here for a night or two.
Really, he must not be a very good friend, cause we're all filled up buddy.
There a guy named Lorne Corral here?
My friend told me Lorne would be sure to set it up.
What'd you say your friends name was?
The Buddha sent you here?
You got a room? Of course l have a room... always got a room for a friend of Buddha's.
Hey, I need a favour, can you cover here for me.
I reckon I'll be on my way.
muchos gracias charlie!
Listen, entrance for room outside you got to go through the bar, out to the left and around back, okay.
You'll see it. Okay? Hey listen...
If you need anything, I mean anything at all.
Don't be scared.
Okay. Thank you.
You want to shut the hell up!
No! Calm down and...
In this hell hole Chuck.
God and the Devil mimic each other.
It's near impossible to tell them apart.
A smart man... only wants someone he can trust.
I thought I had such a friend but I was deceived.
He stole my money and took my freedom... but that wasn't half as bad as what he did to my heart.
If you can't trust another soul you got nothing.
You do know... why you're here, don't you Charlie?
But' why me.
Consider it a favour.
It' is for you.
Not for me.
You talking about this man?
It's the one you want dead... the one that climbed into little Charlie's head and made it his own.
He's still there.
He's still giving the orders.
I can hear him.
I hear him better than I hear you.
You have good visit last night?
What do you know about me having a visitor?
"I just figured you" had a long night with someone.
I mean, it's afternoon.
Why don't you stay out of my business and I'll stay out of yours.
You want to make a fiver?
What do I have to do for it?
Get a gym bag out of locker 130.
Why don' you get it?
Get the bag first, huh.
Who sent you?
Who gave you the fucking locker number?
No one did!
Looking at $189.50.
So how do you like my new shoes.
"." You know what they're saying to me?
They're saying here there's nobody's mark.
A guy with his head on his shoulders an eye to the future.
Somebody who knows how to take care of business.
Take care of what?
What kind of boots are those?
You mean my ventilated gold diggers?
I save those for special occasions.
How do you know this one isn't?
I never said it wasn't.
The way it works now is you say what you want me to call you.
Strong guy got done in by Delilah.
I've never heard that.
You ain't read the Bible?
Mine's the next stop.
Is that Willimette?
Oto, Willimette's a whole different neighbourhood.
Where you from then?
South a ways.
You ain't giving away no secrets, are you?
Ain't that why anybody talks to strangers?
I figured people got a lot of reasons to.
Have you got business in Willimette?
Later I do.
What are you gonna do till then?
There's a pizza joint right below my place.
They only got take out, but it's pretty good.
My ex left a few things when he split.
I, I got to keep a clear head, so.
For your mysterious business in Willimette?
You got anybody Samson?
Like how I ain't got nobody... except an ex?
I had a dog.
The guy I left it with when I was in jail said it got run over by lumber truck.
How long was you in jail for?
You smoke weed?
I just told you about that.
Mm, gotta keep a clear head.
Was it a big dog?
It was medium big.
Looked a lot like a Border Collie... some Sheppard in it.
Did you treat her good Samson?
Yeah, till I left it with who I told you about I did.
You think he didn't die how he said it did?
I think I trusted a good dog to a son of a bitch who killed it for the money I sent him each week to feed it.
I loved a cat to death for six years that died.
That's too bad. I'm sorry.
His name was Gold.
On account of his colour.
Do you mind if I smoke Sam?
Your your ex still got a key?
He hasn't used it far as I know.
So no roommate's gonna pop in?
Was us coming here Samson... was that my idea or yours?
Well, I ain't clear on that either.
You want to watch a movie?
You got one any good?
I got one starring me.
As soon as I use the john.
It's over there.
From whom you can hide nothing.
I'm in two minds on this.
Reason I ask Samson is, I've known people and I don't know whether or not you're one of them to get the artist mixed up with their art.
They get all sorts of ideas regarding one from the other.
What sort of ones they get?
Conclude for example that's Florence.
Who is she?
Girl named LouAnn.
I'm sorry father, but I have nothing to confess.
See, I'm Florence, I'm the actor.
That's somebody else, get it?
Each night' I'd lay in bed thinking who she, and she who come in...
Florence is sort of shy really.
She likes to hold hands, talk, even if it's babble, do a little blow to cut the ice.
But LouAnn, wide eyed little LouAnn... she comes off as all sweet and innocent at first but, I 'I just say she ain't no Florence.
Isn't that right father?
Free yourself of those nasty habits.
On one hand I'm proud of my performance.
But on the other hand LouAnn is so powerful that after you see her bigger than life.
What man's gonna want to know Florence.
A hand holder with a cat that died.
I never met a movie person before, but I don't think I'd mix... one up for the real person.
Samson, I think you got layers, that's what I think.
If I put my feet in your lap, will you rub them good?
You hot yet Samson?
Sure I am.
It's gonna be ten o'clock, I gotta take care of my business.
I aint in no hurry if you ain't hon.
Do you want me to take off my clothes, would that help you get aroused, huh?
If we could just find it Samson, I'd see us... having something really special together, you know.
Do you see it that way Samson?
Our potential together?
Do you want to fuck me in the ass?
No! No more.
Get away from me!
Get the fuck away from me!
Samson, I knew you'd recognise the connection between us.
Mind if I wear these, my clothes are still drying.
Where'd you find those pants?
Just some drawer, do you mind or?
What happened to you Samson?
You tangle with that lion again?
What Lion? What are you talking about?
It's where it hurts you most?
Who says anything hurts me, alright?
Pain's written all over you.
Come here, let me rub your back.
Look, I don't want nothing happening past what's already happened.
You don't want to be with me in no kind of way.
Why don't I?
I just ain't.
I ain't a guy you'd end up liking that's all.
You don't mean that Samson.
You wouldn't have come back if you didn"t like me and want me to like you.
There's this rich friend of mine in prison.
We called him the Buddha.
He used to love telling me about all the fancy dishes he loved to eat.
Shrimp and... lobster.
He told me when I get out... that I should find the best damn restaurant there is... and I should try some things.
You got a right to taste what other people get to taste.
He write you a check for all that?
I got money.
Are you inviting me to dinner Samson?
Is that what this is?
And I'll buy you some new clothes too.
And I am gonna give you a good bare naked rub.
Look, I don't want you to rub on me. Alright.
It might go better between us in that area if if you let me relax you some.
There's no problem with me in that area, alright?
Everything's working fine down there.
I ain't worried about it Samson. I just want you to relax is all.
We have some fun.
I'm gonna buy us a car.
Yeah, and we're gonna drive it to the restaurant where live music is playing.
And all the help, the're gonna wear those black tuxedos.
Alright, how about you dress in all black and I dress in all white?
Alright, you wear white and I'll wear black.
Why? Why? Samson.
Ain't we Looking to make some noise?
Can we get one with guts, Samson?
With a stick.
Growin' up in the Oklahoma foster homes, the next best thing to fucking was leaning back jn some farm boy's rip-roarer.
Vroom! Vroom! Vroom!
Especially if rip roar speeding.
Here's what we could do Samson.
We could use some of your money to score with huh?
I could be flying.
This is a beauty huh?
Remember that rich friend I told you about?
He made Charlie Rankin see he born to be something special.
As to keep me in the nothing that he was.
Who's who? Charlie Rankin.
Just an old con I used to know.
I saw it Samson.
You like that one?
It's way more than like Samson.
This is the nuts!
What? Where you going?
I'm gonna go buy it.
I'm gonna buy it.
That's the one you want right?
You put down your name and license number too.
It's all hers, it's a gift.
Can't you go any faster?
Come on, seriously!
I'm already going 70.
Don't you want to see what this baby's got?
Wooo! That's it Samson.
Woo ho ho!
There's a zoo up ahead we can go to.
You don't like animals?
Mm. Not when they're locked up in cages.
I don't like that either.
But I still like seeing them.
We can go on a picnic.
We can go into the No we ain't goin' countryside. On no picnic.
We're going to a full blown dinner.
I know we are, but it's still too early for dinner.
We got the scratch at the surface anytime we want.
It's the way it works.
Alright! Keep on the expressway it'll take us to the place where all the fancy eating places are.
What time is it? I mean I ought to be starved last I ate!
You ain't hungry?
I got a right' to be.
All the shit I ate last four years!
Damn it, what the hell is goin' on with me?
That's okay Samson.
So we'll just gonna cruise for a while.
Let our appetites build.
I'll be alright.
You ever heard that belief that when you die, you come back... come back as something else, like a rat?
You ever heard that?
I wrote a poem about it.
I Remember You from the Tree Tops.
You figure it happens that way then, huh?
My poem's the only place I can't lie.
Everything I feel believes in him.
Do you believe in it?
Like to but... just afraid it's all bullshit.
What if it is, Still doesn't hurt for you to believe.
It sure would if I killed myself to turn into something better.
Instead found myself in eternal hell it would.
That's the saddest through ever.
What are you doing?
I don't know, not sure, something cool.
I got bit.
What happened to you?
Can't you see it?
Well that's too bad.
You see that Samson?
You see that?
You want to go inside and see it?
Why you don't like churches?
Well, you go.
I can tell what it is here and you talk, huh?
No. That ain't the same Samson.
Come on, I don't want to go alone.
Do you believe you have a soul Samson?
I don't know if I do.
You do. And it's a good one.
It just ain't old like mine.
What proof you got of him?
I feel him.
Just like I feel you're a good soul.
Yeah, what's that feel like?
Let him put some of it into you.
Talk to him.
Tell him how you got no appetite, your stomach hurts, and ask him to make it stop hurtin'
All my life I... from what I can remember of it, I'd be dreaming, about hurting and killing the people that hurt me.
When I was younger that made me feel better until I'd wake up and they were all still alive.
Those dreams were my secret.
I told the Buddha about them.
Tell God it ain't your dreams making your belly sick.
Could have come across Tell him you don't know how you holding the money that you are... and the cuts on your arms and face.
What do you know about me?
Just that your soul is in so much pain Samson.
No, I asked him.
I asked im for help when I needed him when I was younger.
He gave me nothing.
He don't always answer you Samson, how and when you think he will.
I ain't going in anymore fucking churches.
It's you driving us.
I'm just waiting for you to feel better so you pan take me to dinner Samson.
And to make love to me just a little bit longer than you did earlier.
The scars on your back.
Are they're your dream too?
I gotta see someone in there.
You know him?
You spend time in that shit hole?
Back when I was young.
Hasn't everyone had a "Mos" phase growing up, huh?
I hope not.
It's a wonder to me you lived this long... reckless way you go about it.
I'd certainly not live at all than live like you do Samson.
Not trusting a soul.
Not even the one inside you.
You know a guy named Lorne Corral?
Did he get you into this business of last night?
I'll be back.
Don't be gone long.
You lose something?
You want to tell me... what went wrong last night?
Who told you that?
You know what they say?
Eyes are the windows to the soul.
You gotta learn how to draw your curtains.
There was someone else there.
There was a woman there.
No, some blonde.
And I tied her up.
She wasn't going nowhere.
She didn't see me, alright, I was wearing a mask.
There are other ways to tell who you are.
What do you want me to do now?
Kill that voice.
Just do it.
Hey there Samson.
Yeah, let's go.
Bridge is clear.
Take a left up here.
There's a park, we can kill some time at.
Till you get your appetite back.
You're as pale as a ghost.
You have to eat something Samson.
I gotta go somewhere.
I'll be back.
It was nice knowing you.
I said I'll be back.
I thought you said you were leaving?
Use the door.
Time for us to go.
It's "us" now huh?
We can drink somewhere else.
Why don't you cool it man?
Hey, did you hear me?
J' If you ever think about me...
J' If I ever cross your mind.
J' Girl, Girl, If you ever think about me...
J' If I ever cross your mind.
J' Well you know, you know I'm yours.
J' you know I'm yours.
Find I know, J' I know you're mine.
I never have much liked a woman before, anybody.
Sure do you like you though, Florence.
Tell me something I don't know.
Charlie Rankin... some old timer I told you about.
He wasn't shit until the Buddha took an interest in him.
Buddha got him talking again... made Charlie who he is.
He saved Charlie's life?
Why would the cops know to come looking for you in this car?
Unless you done something the cops might want to talk to you about.
You got it all wrong about what's gonna happen in this life.
I don't got a crystal ball Samson.
I don't see the future, all I see is you so twisted up inside and me taking a chance on you.
Well I aim to live as long as I can.
It's good you're back to wanting to.
What I gotta do to live ain't what most people gotta do.
You talking a bout being the finger at the end of Buddha's long arm?
Can't take his money and just walk away.
Is that what you did?
Is that What this ride and this belly ache is all about?
Fuck Charlie, come on man.
Do I rev you up more this way?
What the fuck?
What are you doing?
What's wrong Samson?
You don't like it?
My God... you're burning up.
Poison me or something?
What'd you do?
The bad is bottled up in you Samson, its poisoned you.
I knew this was coming.
What are you doin?
I keep trying to warn you stay away from me.
I can feel in your skin what a beautiful baby you were.
I keep trying to warn you.
About who I am.
I know who you are.
I wouldn't be here if I didn't know who you are Samson.
Yeah, you don't.
And I'm Florence.
I know who you are.
But I came here to kill someone.
Who did you come here to kill'?
It don't matter who. It does matter.
It don't fuckin' matter.
It will to whoever you do it to.
It'll make you sicker and sicker.
I don't feel good.
Let me just hold you.
You hold me. Charlie.
Who are you?
Keep fucking doing this to me!
Where'd you get this hair, huh?
Where'd you get that, huh?
You tell me who you are. I'm tired of this shit.
You tell me now!
Are you her? Are you Florence?
Who are you?
Are you real?
Get inside me and feel better.
I don't want to be like this anymore.
Get inside me.
I can tell by watching you sleep you go to a scary place Charlie.
Do you know where that is?
You look some better anyway.
And I love you no matter.
You love me?
I don't think I'm made for that Florence.
You just get somebody to teach you.
You think I can forget about what I... what I dealt with growing up.
Well you're wrong.
You talking about Chester?
How do you know about him?
Only about the battle you spoke of in your sleep.
That was the nonsense of a dream.
The scars on your back... they your dream too?
I'm gonna go to the next town.
I'm gonna drop you there.
No you won't.
I think I know why you're here more than you do Charlie.
Are you scared?
Just follow your instincts Charlie.
They'll take you to the right place and make you do the right thing.
Do you want me to come with you?
Should I come to the door with you?
Will that make it easier?
This state ain't got the death penalty Charlie.
I read that in the newspaper.
I'm going to do your feet here, alright.
When you're out there, walking just listen okay?
Just trust what you hear.
I think I might just dream it.
No don't dream.
Dreams don't matter.
Put your hands behind your back.
Was me who wanted to come with you, Why would I leave you?
Don't be scared Florence.
Don't you be Charlie.
Are you the police?
Did you see him?
He killed him in front of me.
I tried to stop him.
He was too strong.
I'll be right back.
Some Aspirin for your pain.
You're a doctor?
I could call one?
I don't feel good.
How did you get the scars?
On your hand.
That's all long time ago.
I was just a kid.
There were scars... he.
You got the courage?
Compassion paves the way to the gas chamber Charlie.
I aint gonna do it.
Then get out of my way.
I found somethin'.
You believe me?
Cry for me.
I love you somethin' Charlie.
