JUD: Man…it’s for a getaway.

WILLA: Getaway for what?

JUD: For livin’ my life, for future work I plan on doin’. I need mobility. Can’t afford no truck. Can’t borrow no car, stuck out here. Sh’t. Best thing I know is a motorbike. Get me a motorbike and I’m gone.

WILLA: Why’nt you just get a job?

JUD: Where my gonna get a job Will?

WILLA: (laughing) At the station.

JUD: (laughs) You stupid.

WILLA: (laughs) Still.

JUD: What I could rob in one minute take me a month to make.

WILLA: Yeah, yeah.

JUD: What you gonna do?


JUD: About your own dumb life.

WILLA: Sh’t.

JUD: You better figure it out.

WILLA: Get me some job.

JUD: Don’t you wanna have an IDEA?

WILLA: Out here there ain’t no IDEAS.

JUD: But still.

WILLA: Things we wanna do don’t get done Jud. I ain’t no dreamer like you. Sh’t. I just get through the damn day is all. Ain’t goin’ out robbin’ nobody neither.

JUD: But you need to do somethin’.

WILLA: I’m a smash you right in yo face you keep talkin’ like that about what I gotta do.

JUD: Chill. Chill.

WILLA: What I gotta do? There ain’t no escapin’ this place Jud. You come rollin’ up here twenty years from now, I still be here leaning against this old ass shed watching the paint flake off. What difference does any of it make?

JUD: I hate this sh’t.
