The Amazing Actual Break-up

"Hey. What's goin' on?"

"Um..just wondering if you're still in the mission? I'll come meet you on my way home."

"Yeah, I'm still here with Violet."

"Cool. I'll meet you. You're on 19th and Valencia?"

"Yeah...uh...I don't think that's such a great idea."

"Um...okay, fair enough. Why?"

"Well, Cliff, I mean...well, you're high."

"Yes. That's true."

"No, I mean--you're always high. Always."

"That's not fair."

"Maybe not, but I still don't want to be around it, and I don't want it around me and my girlfriends. I mean, come on Cliff, they don't really like you--you never really talk to them; you can't carry on a conversation with them. You're not fun."

"What? I think I get along with them really well. I mean, I get along with Violet and Sarah, and Mindy seems cool, and..."

"Yeah, that's not going as well as you think it is."

"Okay, well, fair enough."

"I'm worried about you Clifford. I'm not looking to change you when you're not interested in changing. I don't want to try and change you but..."

"And I wouldn't let you."

"Fine. Whatever. I'm just saying that you're drug use is clearly a problem for you."

"But it's not, it's not a problem."

"Well, you just lost your girlfriend over it."

"What? I think we should talk about this."

"No, I don't think that's neccesary."
