  • Joe: Kristine is bitten by her fighting cats, ends up in the hospital. A woman dies in the ER.
  • Kristine: a man on the ward screams and seems to be dying. Growing spiritually just in time for the body to die.
  • Joe: A birthday party. A comedy writer who has an assistant carry around a briefcase with his entire advance for a film and two tape recorders, one recording the present, one playing what happened twenty four hours previously. He is rude in a cafe, then buys the place piece by piece. He squats and shits in the airport terminal.
