Brian drives a Dodge Durango while Tom sits in the passenger seat LAUGHING.

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 3 versions.

TOM

I can't believe that you fuckin' pissed your bed!

FoxeyHound - on 12/22/2009

BRIAN

I'm just as stunned as you are.

FoxeyHound - on 12/22/2009 2 versions.

TOM

Oh man, this has made my fuckin' day. I needed it, too.

FoxeyHound - on 12/22/2009

BRIAN

Why's that? Last night a rough catch?

FoxeyHound - on 12/22/2009

TOM

Not so much rough as opposed to strange, and fuckin' boring.

FoxeyHound - on 12/22/2009

BRIAN

Haha, I think that's how you describe a normal night run.

FoxeyHound - on 12/22/2009

TOM

Yeah, well, anyway, why the fuck are we going to mom's house?

FoxeyHound - on 12/22/2009

BRIAN

Why not? She called a few days ago and wanted to see us. We haven't seen her since her birthday in March, man.

FoxeyHound - on 12/22/2009

TOM

. . . So.

FoxeyHound - on 12/22/2009

BRIAN

So? So–What the fu—It's mom!

FoxeyHound - on 12/22/2009

TOM

Yeah, and?

FoxeyHound - on 12/22/2009

BRIAN

And?! And—Jesus Christ.

FoxeyHound - on 12/22/2009

TOM

What the fuck did I do?

FoxeyHound - on 12/22/2009

BRIAN

You're just immoral.

FoxeyHound - on 12/23/2009 2 versions.

TOM

I'm just worried!

FoxeyHound - on 12/22/2009 2 versions.

BRIAN

Worried?! Da Hell are you talking about?

FoxeyHound - on 12/22/2009

TOM

Well what if the chloroform and drugs on the two bitches back at our places wears off, huh?! Did you think 'bout that?! Did it even cross your fuckin' mind?!

FoxeyHound - on 12/22/2009

Brian cools down as he realizes the situation.

FoxeyHound - on 12/22/2009

BRIAN

. . . No . . . I didn't.

FoxeyHound - on 12/22/2009

TOM

Yeah, you see! Now, I wouldn't be whinin' and complainin' 'bout goin' to mom's house if it were any other day than today. But since it isn't, we'll have to make this visit quicker than when Superman has sex.

Brian starts laughing.

FoxeyHound - on 12/22/2009

BRIAN

That makes no fuckin' sense man.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 2 versions.

TOM

Well whatever man, you get the point!

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 4 versions.

BRIAN

I know, not to stay long.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 2 versions.

A moment of quiet fills the car. Brian then starts to laugh again.

FoxeyHound - on 12/22/2009

APARTMENT - day

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 3 versions.

C.U. on an apartment door. It opens, and we see the brother's elderly mother.

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 3 versions.

MOTHER

Oh! My babies! Come here, you two!

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 2 versions.

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 3 versions.

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 2 versions.

You two won't believe who stopped by a few weeks ago, boys! Mr. and Mrs. Fleischhacker!

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 7 versions.

Nuh-uh, are you serious?

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 3 versions.

Serious!

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 7 versions.

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010

...They sound familiar, but I don't recall...

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010

tom

They were our next door neighbors for the longest time, dude! Remember there son James, we would hang with him all the time.

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010

TOM

Jimbo was here, too?!

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 5 versions.

brian

Oh yeah, Jimbo! Now I remember. How's he doing?

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010

mother

He's doing well, very well. You know he's in the marine corps now.

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010

tom

I'm not surprised, I always thought he'd join the military.

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010

BRIAN

. . . Hey, remember when we found that old barrel and we rolled down that hill? Was that with Jim?

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 2 versions.

TOM

OH YEAH! We'd roll down the hill in that thing for hours and hours. Jim ended up smashing into that huuuuge tree!

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 3 versions.

brian

OH RIGHT, RIGHT, HAHA!

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010

Tom and Brian laugh.

FoxeyHound - on 12/23/2009 2 versions.

mother

Dear God, you three used to make me worry so much.

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 2 versions.

BRIAN

Well, boys will be boys.

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 3 versions.

Mary chuckles. Tom gets up out of the armchair.

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 2 versions.

TOM (CONT'D)

Damn straight.

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 2 versions.

BRIAN

Indeed.

FoxeyHound - on 12/23/2009

An awkward moment of silence.

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 3 versions.

mother

Sweetie, what are you doing? You're making me nervous just standing there.

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 2 versions.

TOM

Gunna go drop a duece.

FoxeyHound - on 12/23/2009

mother

Oooookay, could have told me a little differently but that's okay. Make sure to turn the fan on!

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 2 versions.

Tom walks down the hall chuckling. Mary takes a sip of her tea sighs contently.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 3 versions.

Mother (CONT'D)

Time...It's a funny little thing.

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 4 versions.

Brian turns and looks at Mary, her comment puzzling him.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

BRIAN

. . . What do you mean?

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 7 versions.

mother

You ever realize how slow, yet how fast time goes by.

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 3 versions.

Brian just sits there pondering.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

Mother (CONT'D)

It's a paradox. I remember when you were a little boy. Tommy, too. And it feels like just yesterday, yet . . . and yet simultaneously, it feels as if those days were a very long time ago. 15 years is a long time, but it feels even longer than that. Centuries, millenniums, eons. Please, stop me if I'm boring you. I don't mean to ramble.

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 6 versions.

Brian

Nonono, it's fine. I'm listening.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

Mary sips her tea once more before continuing.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

MARY CALLANDSKi

Sometimes, when I'm thinking about days that have passed, I become so lost with my sense of time that I don't know where I am. Like a dog; a dog sees things, eats, sleeps, but doesn't understand nor comprehends what life is. It just knows to eat, drink, and sleep. That's what it's like. For a very brief moment, my mind goes completely blank; I don't know anything, and I just sit there in a dumb daze. I feel as light as a feather, and I'm being sucked up into the air, spinning and swirling, all disoriented. I lose touch with reality, disconnect from the Universe, and end up floating in another dimension. (Pause) Then suddenly, I'm back. Without any sort of warning, like turning on a light. And it feels as if nothing happened.

FoxeyHound - on 02/24/2010 5 versions.

There's a long pause between the two, and Mary drinks her tea. Brian sits there very perplexed, staring at his mother.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 3 versions.

mother

. . . I always need to pee right after one of those moments, too. (chuckles) Very strange.

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 4 versions.

Brian stares at her, then finally says:

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 2 versions.

BRian

. . . Are you on some different medication or something, mom?

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 2 versions.

Mary giggles lightly.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 2 versions.

mother

No, sweetheart. I guess I'm just passing through some sort of a mid-life crisis.

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 2 versions.

She smiles, giving Brian a PECK on the cheek. Brian smiles back sympathetically, but is still deep in thought. They sit there for a minute, watching the TV. We hear the toilet flush in the bathroom.

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 6 versions.

Mother (CONT'D)

Don't get all concerned about me; I'll be alright. Just forget about this.

FoxeyHound - on 06/25/2010 3 versions.

BRIAN (CONT'D)

Sure thing, mom.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

Pause.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

MARY CALLANDSKI

So anyway, how's everything been going at work?

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

BRian

Well—

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

Tom BURSTS out of the bathroom, apprehension on his face. Mary and Brian look up, startled.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 3 versions.

BRIAN (CONT'D)

I was beginning to think you died on us.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 2 versions.

Tom

Brian, we need to talk, NOW.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 2 versions.

Tom rushes over to Brian and grabs his arm.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

Brian

Whoa whoa, what's going on?

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

MARy Callandski

Is everything alright?

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

Mary begins to get up to walk with them, but Tom stops her.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

tom

Mom, it's fine, we just need to talk about an important matter. It won't be long.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 3 versions.

Brian and Tom hastily walk down the hall. Mary is awfully concerned, but sits back down, WRINGING her hands.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 2 versions.

INT. BEDROOM - CONTINUOUS

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

The brothers come inside, flipping on the light. Tom SLAMS the door behind. Their rapid bickering come out in STRONG whispers.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 2 versions.

TOM (CONT'D)

Okay, we need to be on our way real fuckin' soon.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 2 versions.

BRIAN

Why didn't we earlier?

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

tom

I lost track of the time!

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

Brian

Why am I not surprised?

FoxeyHound - on 12/28/2009

tom

Just get going, alright?

FoxeyHound - on 12/28/2009

brian

Well what the fuck are we waiting for, let's go! Go!

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

Brian pushes Tom out the door.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

INT. LIVING ROOM - CONTINUOUS

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

The brothers STUMBLE out of the bedroom and hurry their way back. Their mother stands up.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 2 versions.

MARY CALLANDSKI

Wh-What's the matter?

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

Tom

We'd really love to stay longer, really, but we gotta make like Siamese twins and split.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

The brothers continue to the doorway, where they begin to slip on their shoes they left by the door. Mary follows them.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 4 versions.

MARY CALLANDSKI

What's going on? Where you going?

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 2 versions.

BRIAN

We'll explain another time, but we have to go, now!

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 2 versions.

MARY CALLANDSKI

Well call me later, please. I'm worried sick about you two.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 2 versions.

TOM

There's no need to worry, we'll be fine.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 2 versions.

Mary begins to tear up slightly

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

Mary callandski

I don't want you two to get hurt.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

Tom is getting annoyed. Brian's body language and expression shows that he's getting uncomfortable; he knows that Tom will snap any moment.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 2 versions.

tom

We'll call later, mom! Don't panic.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 2 versions.

Now Mary's speech is slurred and shaky.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 2 versions.

MARY CALLANDSKI

You p-p-promise? I d-d-don't w-want you two—

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

TOM

MOM! Calm down! We'll be alright!

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

Mary speaks no more. Brian feels ashamed. Tom is breathing heavily. The two make their way out the door. Brian stops a moment, and looks at his worried mother.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009 2 versions.

Brian

I'm sorry, mom. I love you.

FoxeyHound - on 12/24/2009

Brian blows her a kiss, then he SHUTS the door.
