Where the hell are you?

I am going to beat your little

if you don't get out here!

I've gone over this for two

I don't remember anything.

Mommy? Mommy?


Look what I got for you.


Go away.

Go away.


Can you tell me about Jeremy

Where did you two meet?

I don't want to talk about

Why are you guys doing this to

Why am I still here?

Is he your boyfriend?

Again, my name is Dr. Carter

You waived your right to an

and I'm just here to speak with

I honestly don't remember

That's alright. Let's just
start at the beginning.


Thank you.

Awe, you shouldn't have. Come
on in.

So how long have you worked

About three years. Keeps me out
of trouble.

Trouble? What kind of trouble?

Thank you for the flowers by
the way.

A gentleman always brings
flowers on a first date. Oh
wait, sorry.

It's not a date. It's coffee.

I'm not used to guys being so
nice to me.

Oh, come on. That is hard to

No ones ever got me flowers

Well, I did.

You did...

Oh my god...

Why am I so nervous?

I guess I don't get out much.

That's impossible.

You're beautiful.

Thank you.

You are shaking.


Can I kiss you?

I wanna feel you inside me.



Not now.

Not now. Please stop.

Not right now.

(woman's voice) I thought you
would never come.

I'm so pleased you did.

I didn't know you wanted me to.

It took some homework trying to
find you.

Caleb. My boy.

My baby boy.

Caleb. Look at you!

You have grown to be such a big

Why do you cover up your hair
like that?

You have such a nice head of


Just like me.

Not like your father.

Like me.


My boy Caleb...

Where have you been? Huh?

You left me mom.

Gave me up.

I'm here now.

You've come home.




Cay, you awake?

There's something I wanna tell

(Caleb) And I woke up, he was

How did that make you feel?

Abandoned. Alone.

How would that make you feel?

I've listened to everything

everyone has said. I just want
to go home

Caleb... You can't go home.

We need to find out what

I don't know where the blood
came from.

Can I help you?

How are you?

What can I get you?

Ahhh... Cappuccino. No Whip.

So how are you?

What's that?

How are you?


It's good to see you.

What else can I get you?

Did I do something wrong?

Yeah. As a matter of fact, you
did. You left.

No note. No phone number.

That was three days ago.

I'm sorry.

That's why I'm here.

Caleb. I'm sorry.

I didn't mean to make you this

I knew I'd see you again.

Yeah, well I didn't.

Have dinner with me.


But let me make this better.


This has got to be the best
Chinese food I've ever had.


I thought sitting by the
fireplace would be kinda

I really love your place.

Thanks. So do I.

It was left to me when my mom

I'm sorry to hear that.

How'd she die?


She wasn't my real mom. I just
call her that 'cause

she's the closest thing.

I don't know my real dad either.

I was adopted.

Spent most of my childhood in
foster care.

You know, in and out, in and

I guess you could say I was a
little troubled one.

And then I met this older

Karen and Bill. Gave me a
stable home.

They knew I was gay from the
beginning. No problem with it.

They were really cool.

Long story short: Karen caught
Bill cheating and she kicked
him out.

So, shortly thereafter she was
diagnosed with Leukemia.

And two days before my 17th
birthday, she died.

They let me back here when I
was 18.

By leaving me this place, she
made sure I

would always have a home.

You, mister, are very brave.

I think that all that stuff
you've gone through,

has made you into the man you
are today.

I guess.

Why are you so nice to me?

Because I like you.

You're sweet. You're open.

You're honest.

I never met anybody like you

I never told anyone that stuff

Well, I'm glad you did.

Now, are you ready for desert?

Hell, yeah!

Scoop! Not that much! Pick that

Damn. Alright, that's good,
that's good. I can't eat all

What are you talking about?
You can eat all that.

Alright, a little more.

Oh yeah...

No, I'm going over here.

So what is with all these

Childhood fantasy. I love

This one...

I've had since I was...

4, I think.

It's my favorite.

I've been collecting entire life.

My one constant.

I used to...hide.

Hide in my closet.

And sit with this one, and hope
and pray that one day he would

come to life, right, and just

take me away from all the hell
that I was living.

You ever ride one?

A few times. In Vermont.

Well, we should go.

To Vermont?

No, nimrod! Horseback riding.

You'd do that with me?


You do realize this is
disgusting, don't you?

Oh come on, leave poor Hermie

You know, there is only one
thing I hate in this world,

and it is nasty, hairy spiders.

Oh come on, he's only a little
bit poisonous. Don't tap the

I mean, couldn't you settle for
like a dog, or a cat?

No. I don't like yappy little
Paris Hilton dogs

and lord knows, I ain't into

What does one do with a spider

I mean you can't take him out
and play with him?

Sure you can. I take him out
all the time.

Let him roam all over me.

Remind me not to be here when
you do that.


Oh fuck! You ass!

You sure you don't wanna hold

No! I would shit myself. Twice.

Come on you big baby, let's go.

Don't tap the glass!

I could stay like this forever.

Me, too.

Tell me something about you that
nobody else knows.

I take Lipitor.

I already knew you were old.

No, seriously...

I wanna know everything about


I'm a recovering addict and

I've been sober for 15 years.

No shit...

I call it a gift that my
alcoholic mother never got.

She's not alive?


She died when I was 23.

From drinking?


She was in rehab, and then she
went to a halfway house.

She wanted out. She came to
live with me.

I couldn't take it anymore.

What happened?

They found her body submerged
in the bathtub after the whole
house flooded.

And for the longest time I
didn't know

if she drowned or...

drank herself to death.

I'm so sorry.

You know, that didn't even stop

I kept using for years and...

I just finally got sick and
tired of being

sick and tired.

So there ya go! There's one of
my big secrets.


I wasn't expecting that one.

So you haven't drank or smoked

or done anything in 15 years?
Not even a little bit?


I call that grace.

I never thought of it like that.

That you can do anything you
set your heart to.

Man, I can't believe this is

Well, why don't you pinch me
and find out?

You're such a nerd!
Shut it!

He was like my knight in
shinning armor. I never met
someone who

really listens to me the way
he does.

It sounds like you're quite
enamored with Jeremy.

Where is he?

Does he know I'm in here?

Let me ask you
something...would you ever

intentionally do something to
Jeremy that would hurt him?

No. Absolutely not.

Why would you say something
like that?

I need to see him.


You're very angry. I understand

You don't understand shit!

You have no idea what it's like
to be me.

That's exactly what we need to
find out.

I don't need to hear this right
now... I don't get this...

Give me that god damn it!
How many times do I have to
tell you?

Not at the dinner table.

There. Now maybe you'll finish
your dinner.

You are not leaving this table
until you finish every god damn

bit of that. Do you hear me?

Do you hear me?

But I don't like it mommy.

EAT! Eat! Eat!!

Eat you little pussy boy! Eat.

Eat! Eat!

Go to bed.

That must have been really hard
for you.

I never told anyone.

Are you sure this doesn't
bother you?


It's cool. And you don't have
to keep asking me.

I just don't want you to be

I really needed to unwind

I know baby.

Give me.

You know...

You really need to realize that
there is so much good in you.

Validating that good is...

Not always an easy thing to do.

I just feel alone.

I feel so alone sometimes.

Like I can't...

shake this feeling of being

But you...

You can change that.

That is all up to you.


You, mister, have me now.

Will you stay with me tonight?

I would love to stay with you

Come on sleepyhead! Wake up!
I've got a surprise for you.

Yo! Sleeping beauty! Wake up!

But it's Saturday.

Yeah, I know. Let's go.

Where are we going?

Come on. Up, up up! I've got a

I hate surprises.

I heard that!

Now can you tell me what we're
doing here?

Well, since horses are the one
thing that

brighten that beautiful smile,
I thought you should have one
of your own.

What are you talking about?

This farm is part of an adopt a
horse program.

You get to adopt a old or
abused horse...

Cay, I want you to meet 'Nero

Nero, meet your new owner,

You're kidding, right?

She's 15 years old. She's
friendly, healthy.

And I think a big old lesbian.

But just remember, I don't
shovel shit or anything like

No, of course not.

And there's one more thing...


Come here...

I just want you to know you
have made me

the happiest I've been in my
entire life.

I never felt this way about
another guy.

I love you so much.

I love you, too.

Thank you.

Thank you.

That was the first time I ever
heard someone tell me that with
such conviction.

It was a foreign word to me.

I don't even think I love

Did you ever?

No. No.

Why is that?

I don't know.

I never had love.

Growing up...even when I was

a little kid. Being told,

I was a pussy boy or a faggot
all the time.

It doesn't do much for the

Who called you that?

My mother. For starters.

You're not a pussy.

And you're not a faggot.

I suck dick...

Is that what you think a faggot
is? What a faggot is

is disgusting slang. That's all.

Whatever. I'm gay, okay?

Well, great. That's not a bad

Now, you had love.

Genuine love.


Ponyboy. You know, from that
movie 'The Outsiders'?

I like the name, but can't say
I've ever seen it.

You young ones today. Can't get
no respect.

What about you?

Donnie Darko.


Jake Gyllenhaal.

When he was a teen. That whole
dark and brooding thing.

He had all that dark hair. Had
that rebel

thing going on.

I had actually got caught
beatin' off thinking about him.

No. Really?

I had hung this 'Outsiders'
poster on my bedroom wall

and I thought I was being all
inconspicuous about it with it
hung behind my bed.


I 'd lay back with my feet on
the pillow and get busy.

My mom comes in with a pile of
laundry and there I am,
whackin' off.

Choking the chicken, yeah, go

I'd have my shirt pulled up
against my nipples

and my jeans and my underwear
around my ankles.

She walks in, and I'm so caught
off guard that I roll of the bed

and I fall to the ground.


It was like something out of a
Ben Stiller movie, but...

I mean honestly, the real
experience was not that fun.

You were alone.

Now I have you.

So let me ask you something?


You ever think about finding
your mom?

I don't see the point.


I have thought about it
a couple of times.

Some day.

I have a new family.

It's a nice couple. They take

good care of me.

That's nice, sweetie.

Kinda boring, but they're cool.

What's brown and sticky?

I don't know. Poop?

No! A stick, silly!

I'm in school.


I try really hard. It's alright.

I don't really get the whole
Algebra II thing.

What does a perverted frog say?

I don't know.

Rub it. Rub it. Rub it.

What do you call a lesbian



Come on Cabby, duh!

Hey, hey...just one more. One
more. Promise. And then we will
go down to have applesauce.

Because, I need my sauce.

Okay...what is the number one

of pedophilia?

Sexy babies.

Get it? Get it?

It's sexy babies.

It's sexy babies. Sexy babies.
Sexy babies.

It's the babies. The babies.

Why would someone who rarely
cooks have two jars of Cream of

I honestly don't even know
what that is.

I don't either.

So how long do we cook this for?

A half hour, maybe.

So where did you learn all

kitchen stuff. You don't really
even seem like the cooking type.


Oh, I almost forgot.

You shouldn't have.

Just open it.

So I saw it in the drugstore
and thought of you.

Oh my god...a Bugs Bunny

I know, it's silly.

No. It is not silly.

It is very sweet.

I just thought that we could

ummm...take it to the next


I just could keep it

With no more overnight
toiletry bag.

No more overnight toiletry bag.

OH! And... A Key.

To your hole?

No! Gross. No, to my heart.

No, the house. It's the house.

To my heart. To the house.


Thank you.

Of course.

I love you so much.


By the way...

I found her.

Your mom.


Cay? Cay, I'm sorry.

I didn't mean to do it.

I'm sorry, alright.

I shouldn't have done that. I

Just fuckin' stop. Just
fuckin' stop!!! Why can't you be

my fucking boyfriend
and not my keeper!

I'm not being..

You have fuckin' no idea!

So what?

I thought I was
doing something...

So now you know the Caleb...
the Jacob's fucking family

How do you feel about it, huh?
You wanna know a secret? You
wanna know a secret?

I've been keeping tabs on the
bitch the entire time. In the
fucking loony bin...

that's exactly where she's
been! I knew that! I fucking
knew that!!!

Just calm down...

NO! Don't tell me to calm down!

I'm sorry, okay!
I thought I was doing something

You have no fucking idea how it
feels. You have fucking no

Enough! Enough, okay!

Shut up!!!!

I'm sorry.


Just calm down...

I'm sorry...

I'm sorry.



I'm sorry

It's NOT okay.

I know it's not
okay. I'm sorry okay?

Look at me, I'm sorry.

Fucking belt.

I'm gonna cum...

Shoot it! Go!

10 minutes. That's all I needed
was 10 fucking minutes, and I'd
be comatose.

That's all I needed.

Did you discuss this with your

What's the point? I'd just get
another pill, and...

With the right diagnosis

and medication, it's amazing
what can happen.

Let's get something straight!
I'm not her, alright.

I'm not her.

You're fucking disgusting.

You fucking piece of shit.

You ugly little pussy bitch.

Cum whore. You did this to me.


made me like this. You did it.

You made me what I am. You!

You! You! You!
You little faggot!

Little faggot!

I can't stand you.

I cannot stand that I pushed
you out of my vagina.

You ruined me!

You tore up my insides

and stole every piece of me

when you forced your little fat
wrinkly baby

body into this world. My

My intestines. My pussy.

My fucking anus.

You're gross.

You are disgusting. I
mean, look at you!

Just look at you!!!!!

Look at you. Devil's spawn!

Worse then even the man who
dumped his sperm into me.

And all for what?

For what? So you could run
around sticking

AIDS ridden dicks in your
asshole you sad pathetic

faggot! Homo!

I hate you! I hate you!

You didn't go to the hospital?

No, I didn't go to the hospital.

I wasn't gonna leave you like

You and I...we need to talk.

Do you hate me?


No, I don't hate you.

I am the one that you should
hate. This is all

my fault. I never should have
butt in.

This isn't any ones fault.

I did this.

I still cannot comprehend why

you would cut yourself like



Don't be.



I don't know.

I guess I just wanted the
outsides to look like the
way I feel on the inside.

Oh fuck, that's stupid.

You know, suicide is not an

I wasn't gonna do that!

You know, I look at you and all
I see is pain.

I just
want to make it better.

You know, that's just it. Don't
try so hard.

I'm not used to all this.

You know, no one has ever given
me this much.


Every single time I let someone
in, they just

leave me. So don't try so hard.

What was I supposed to do?

I walk in and I see you

I don't call that trying too
hard, okay.

I call that trying to take care
of somebody I love.

You're not gonna leave me now,
are you?

Did you not just hear what I

I said I love you.

You know, the past 8 months

have changed my life more
than you will ever know.

I'm sorry.

I never want to leave you.

You know what you need?

A lobotomy?


Yeah, probably.

I think you need a little bit
of Nero in the morning.


How's that sound?

Sounds great.

Fairmont Place. Fairmont Place.
Fairmont Place.

Fairmont Place...

That ones mine. Ready?
Wanna see what it is?

He's good for something.


Thank you.

Here we go..
but Daddy's not going to be the
one getting up in the middle of
the night

feeding her, now is he?

She knows me like a book.

I'm kidding...

She just kicked. This kid has
been going crazy all day.

Honey, feel.

Baby, could you grab the
recycling bin, too?

Awe, you didn't.

These are my favorite.

Don't forget the box that my
Mother brought.

I know, I know.

It's in the car.


For the longest time I...

I didn't even love myself.

Caleb, you just have to..

you have to be completely
honest with me.

If we're gonna make this work.

I like it that way.

Me, too.

Why are you doing this to me?

Why are you doing

this to me?

Why are you doing this

to me.

Why are you...

You fuck. Fuck you!

I've been waiting for you.

I'm sorry, baby. I got stuck in
the ER.

Come to bed.

I see how this goes.

Is this my payback for being


Awe, you dirty boy.

You have no idea.

Now kiss me.

Close your eyes.

I have a surprise for you.

Can I open?

Daddy's Angel.

How cute.

How did you get these?

Cay, come on. Let me explain.
Just take these off.

I really don't think I should
be around you right now.

Cay...Cay, wait. Let me
explain. Cay, Wait!

Cay! Caleb! Take these fucking
things off me.

Cay! Cay!

Please stop. Please stop.
Please stop. Please stop.

Please stop. Please stop.
Please stop.

Please stop. Please stop.
Please stop.

Please stop. Please stop.
Please stop.





Shut up! Shut up! SHUT UP!

You fucking pussy. I can't
stand this shit!




You're fucking crazy!

What did you call me?

I have been in here for hours.

You fucking psycho!

Please don't hit me.
Please don't hit me.

Please don't hit me.

Listen to you. You sound like a
faggot. You are a faggot,
right? RIGHT?

Take these off of me.

Answer the question.


Louder. I wanna hear it again.


Very good.

Now see, I know that. And you
know that.

But does your wife know that?

Why are you doing this to me?


Why? Listen to you.

Damn, you are pathetic.

You're nothing but a two-faced


Nothing that we did was a lie.

She's a fucking cunt. A cunt.

That just blows my mind.

And she's pregnant. She's
pregnant, too?

Take that off of me.

Your wife should really lock
the back door.

Please tell me you didn't hurt
her. Please tell me you didn't
hurt her.

She's fine.

What do you think I am?

I'm sorry, baby.

I'm so sorry.


You're not who I thought you

You're just like everybody else.

No. You're not listening.

I'm sorry.

Shut UP! Just stop.

I can't breathe...

Please let me go. I won't tell
anyone. Please just let me go.

I know...

You're too afraid. What would
you say?

I'm sucking some kid's dick?

The Ms. would love that.

How long do you plan on keeping
me here?

Until you tell me the truth.

Have you heard of Brief
Reactive Psychosis?


Enlighten me.

It's usually triggered by an
extremely stressful event in
ones life.

You've had many recently.

The subject tends to hear
voices and hallucinate.

To see and hear things that
aren't really there.

They do things they wouldn't
normally ever do.

Does this sound familiar?

We've talked about your life
growing up. The abandonment.

So...what's that got to do with
why I'm here?

I'm thinking that perhaps the
new details

you've discovered about
Jeremy's life may have been a

for what transpired with him.

You people keep saying what's
transpired with Jeremy. I don't
know what you're talking about.

Do you hear yourself? You have
an acute reaction to rejection.

There's only so many times

I can pick myself up again.

So many credit cards...

Oh, whose Don? Do you fuck him,

Should I take that as a yes?


Ooh, look at that...

it's the first word you said in
hours. I was beginning to think
you were mad at me.

So what's her name?

Your bitch?

Fuck you!

Why did you get married if
you're gay?

You have no clue about our

You're GAY!

You can't make that go away.

Alright, YES! I'm gay!

Okay, there. I said it. I'm gay.

Does she even know?

I don't know.

Why did you marry her?

Because I thought it would

I thought having a baby would
make things different.

Do you hear how ridiculous

that is?
Oh, it's so easy for you, isn't

We grew up in different times,
Cay. have things like
fucking Glee.

Where I grew up, all I heard

is that gay equals AIDS. You're

you die. That kept me hiding.

You wanna know the real reason
my adopted mother threw her
husband out?

She caught him fucking me!

He'd been molesting me for
years. You have no idea what it
feels like to have the man

supposed to be your father
ripping your ass open.

And AIDS? You think I wasn't
scared of dying?

That disgusting creeper shot
his load in my ass constantly.

If you think I wasn't scared of

think again, my friend.


I should be back by three.
Would you like me to leave the
TV on for you?

The TV...

There's no TV.

Okay, before I go...take three
of these.

One, two, and three.

Drink. Drink!


Now I know you know how do to

Good boy.
Open. Come on, open.

Come on...
For the anxiety.

Three should do the trick.

I wanna go home.

You are home.

I love you.

(phone rings)


Can I get one of these?

I've seen you here.

Because I work here.

So listen. I'm hot. I think
you're kind of hot.

What do you say we make it

That's stupid.

You're stupid. Plus, I'm

Yeah, well, good luck with that.

It's on the house.

You're a nasty little bitch,
aren't you?

You have no idea.

Get up!


Come on. Shut up, you pussy.


I hope for your sake you
swallowed those pills.

What the...what the fuck are
you doing?

Get...what the fuck are you

I thought you'd like it daddy.

Please just kill me.

I don't want this anymore.

Don't be ridiculous.

I wanna die.

I can't...

Don't worry. I have something
better for you.

You're about to lose the one
thing that you worked so hard

Take a sip.

Little more?

It's good, isn't it?

Have some more. Oh, come on,
don't be greedy.

Let's get drunk together.

Do you hate me?

No. No I don't hate you.

I am the one that you should

This is all my fault.

This isn't anyones fault.

I did this.

You're not gonna leave me now,
are you?

I said I love you.

The past 8 months have changed
my life more than you will ever

I'm sorry.

I never want to leave you.

Even though I'm really scared...

I do love you.

I'm so sorry, baby.




There was only one thing left
to do.

And what was that?

(phone buzzing)

You do and say exactly what
we went over, okay?


Everything will be okay.

Jeremy? Jeremy, I'm here.



What's this all about?


Are you okay?

Seems we have something in

Isn't that right, baby?

Somebody tell me what the hell
is going on here!

Go on...tell her. me.

Come on.

Go ahead and tell her.

Just like we practiced.

Come on. I...









How are we supposed to be a
family when you have a wife?

We've been fucking for almost a
year. Tell her how you like to
go down on me.

He sucks a mean cock. Swallows,

Look at that. Nice throw.
You're more of a man then he is.

Let's see what we all got here.

Wouldn't it be great if mommy
had a dirty little secret, too?

Cay, it's over.

Stop! Stop!

You wanna fuck with my family!

I killed her.

I did it.

I didn't mean to do it.

I didn't mean to hurt anyone.

It's the last thing I remember,
was being at Jeremy's house.

And that was it.

Like I said...

Let's start at the beginning.

Are you hungry?

Are you hungry still? You wanna
play with the cow?

You want your little cow? I
know you do.

I know mamma. Don't you cry.
