Dud's Lynx Speach
And then last year, I took a surf trip to Nicaragua, and I got bit by a snake and I almost died.
And the wound, it never really healed right, so I can't really surf anymore, or really do any of the things that I used to do.
And then about a month after I got back from my trip, uh, my dad went body surfing, - and he drowned.
And they never found his body.
So now it's just me and my sister.
She's my twin.
Later on, we found out that my dad he was going broke, so the bank foreclosed on the house, and we had to liquidate the shop.
So we lost we lost everything.
I guess you could say this year's been kind of a bum ride.
But then a couple days ago, I was walking on the beach, and I found a a Lynx ring.
And I I didn't know what it was, obviously.
But then later in the day, my car ran out of gas right in front of the lodge.
So it was it was fate.
And then when Ernie invited me inside, I was standing in the lobby, and I don't know, I I just ..just felt like I was meant to be here.
I feel like this place can help me.
So, that's So, um I don't know how else to explain it.
Ernie: You don't have to.
It's Different In Here
(Dud Talking to Ernie in the lodge after discovering he took his money )
You know, when I'm out there I feel like I'm all alone.
And all these things chasing me, it's It's dragons and dickheads.
But it's different in here.
I can see what this place is.
I can feel it.

Dud: And it wasn't like my life flashed before my eyes or anything like that.

It You know, and and and I just forgot who I was.
I forgot and and and I was just the ..the a thing a thing that was gonna die, and it and it didn't matter.
I think about my dad, and if that's how he felt at the end I Uh, there's this darkness, and it's just still waiting there.

He was happy! You know, that's your biggest delusion of all, right there.
Liz: Really? What? - Dad was faking it.
The debt had been crushing him for years.
Years! He couldn't deal with it, so he decides to check out.....(Dud gives long rebuttal)
Liz:God, you'll believe anything as long as you don't have to face the truth! Dad wanted to die, Dud.

Liz's Vivisection Speech
Liz: But if we're gonna ask ourselves what's underneath the tits
and everything else, I'd have to say loneliness and despair.
It's like we're all bound together pervy customers, staff.
We all kind of wash up on the same shore.

I-I don't know what I'm saying now.
