- "You made your bed,
now lie in it."

Can anybody tell me
what the fuck that means?

You don't go to the trouble
of making your bed,

smoothing out the sheets,
fluffing up the pillows,

just to ruin it all
by lying down.

The phrase should be,

"you laid in your bed,
now make it."

The point being,

you got to be responsible
for your actions.

I was asked

if I knew anything
about the shooting, I said no.

Schillinger approached me
outside the library.

He told me he would

I wanted him dead.

Two grand?

Isn't it true at that time
you approached Schillinger?

- No.

- You never asked him

how much he'd pay you
to kill Tobias Beecher?

- No, that would be entrapment
and against the law.

- You say he offered
to pay you money.

Did he offer you
anything else?

- He implied that
if I didn't help him,

he would tell people
I killed Scott Ross.

- Did that factor into your
decision to trick him?

- No, because
it's not true.

I killed no one.

I saved your life,

And in return
you destroyed mine.

- Your brother, Cyril,

- Shit.

- Cops want
to interrogate you,

although he's refusing to
implicate you in the murder.

He's gonna take

You gotta see
that I love her, man.

- Love? What the fuck
do you know about love?

- What do you know, huh?

What do

I know the difference

love each other.

They can't feel the same things
a man and a woman feel.

I mean, if a guy has a lot
of bad shit happen to him

and another guy
comforts him,

I mean, that's,
that's all it is, right?

I mean, that's
not love, right?

- Well, some men in here are
homosexual and some need sex--

- I'm not talking about sex;
I'm talking about love.

I had sex
with Schillinger.

It was brutal,

This is different.

[bell ringing]

- Got a surprise
for you.

- A surprise?

- I talked to a couple of guys
who know about tattoos.

They said because yours was
burned on instead of inked,

it can't be removed.

- I could've told you that.

- You hate
the swastika, right?

- Yeah.

- Okay, so then we
fill it in like that.

- Oh, okay, wait,
you don't like that?

We'll just do that.

- That's crazy.
- Why crazy?

of the fucking thing,

I remember how painful
it was going on.

Both of those, it's a lot
of burned flesh.

- Which leads

to the second part
of my surprise.

- What's that?
- Moonshine.

101% pure alcohol.

It's like
the old west,

cowboy gets shot,
you gotta remove the bullet.

You take a couple of snorts
of this shit,

you're not gonna
feel anything.

- There's only
one problem with that.

I've been sober
for over a year now.

- So what?

- I'm an alcoholic.

Every bad thing that's
ever happened to me

has been as
a result of booze.

I'm just now feeling like
I'm beating my heroin addiction.

To go back home
to alcohol?

- Okay.

- Don't be mad.

- I'm not mad.

- Yeah, you are.

- No, it was
a stupid idea.

I just didn't
think things through.

That's my problem.

I don't think anything

the whole beauty of this plan

all the guilt and shame,

all the shit that Beecher's

live with himself,

until Beecher
destroys himself.

- No, Vern,
I'm the key.

Beecher loves me.

He won't admit it yet,

I don't understand,

whether or not you get
to see your own kids?

- No.

all things considered,

I shouldn't spend time

more harm than good.

Four times,
if you count...

who I married twice.

- Uh-huh.

Why did you get married
so often?

- Call me old-fashioned,

but before I fuck them,
I marry them.

- The problem is...

The sex.

It's never as good
as it is in the beginning,

and once
the sex sucks,

I realize I got nothing
in common with them.

- Genevieve and I had
everything in common until...

- Bonnie just
got married again.

I shouldn't care, right?

I divorced her twice,

I got no claim on her.

Get the fuck over here.

Sure, the mattress
may be lumpy,

the springs may have sprung,

the bed itself may be

there ain't a reason you got

Good night.

Sleep tight.
