“How’s that?”

Spider and the fly

TONY
“We’re losing another homeless guy.”

PHILIP
“Who’s that?”

TONY
“You remember when I told you about the homeless guy up the street, the guy who was drinking mouthwash?  He’s in the hospital — has been for 3 days now. The doctors figure for sure he ain’t coming out of that hospital on his own steam, if you know what I mean.”

PHILIP
“How do you know this?”

TONY
“I spoke one of his other friends last night. The guy says that everyone’s done whatever they could to help the guy, but his insides were totally rotted out. You know, we’re just falling like flies now.”
