Eight-balls and empty pockets

PHILIP
“Wow, you look really pissed off; I hope it’s not something I did; I wouldn’t want to be on your bad side when you’re looking the way you do right now.”

TONY
“No way, you’d hear from me about anything like that, that’s for sure.”

It’s my friend I’ve been telling you about. So he gets his welfare cheque, he promises me, he really promises me that he’s gonna use the money to feed himself and get a room. Next thing you know, he’s spend it all on crack and he’s got nothing left. Probably got 3 eight-balls with the dough. Now of course he wants me to help him. How’s he gonna get out of his situation if he can’t be a bit responsible, you know what I mean?”

PHILIP
“You are really looking pale and tired this morning.”

TONY
“Yeah well I couldn’t sleep all night. Couldn’t stop coughing so I just laid there. I’m coaching a friend of mine.”

PHILIP
“What do you mean by ‘coaching’ ?”

TONY
“He’s got himself hooked so I’m trying to help him. I think I can help this guy.”

Drinking the hemlock

TONY
“You know my friend you met the other day, you know the one, he’s homeless too. He’s looking really bad; I think his body’s about to give out on him, if you know what I mean. He’s into the mouthwash again. I don’t know how he can drink that stuff. Anyway, he’s killing himself, and there’s nothing I can do about it.”
