Start: Ashbee: A lot of jerks live here. Come on in. My bones are cold. Do you want a towel to dry off? John Polk: Yes, thank you. Ashbee: I’m sorry the place is so disheveled, but my father’s been out of town. I always try to pick up and all before he gets in. Of course he’s pretty used to messes. My mother never was too good at keeping things clean. John Polk: When’s he coming back?

[... ... ...]

End: John Polk: Don’t they come out at night? I hear New Orleans has lot of rats. Ashbee: Yeah, yeah, it’s got lots of rats. John Polk: Then let’s dance all night and wait for them to come out. Ashbee: All right—but, but what about our feet? John Polk: Feet? Ashbee: They’ll hurt. John Polk: Yeah. Ashbee: Okay, then let’s dance.
