EXT. CEMETERY - DAY
Rows and rows of gravestones. Eric frowns down upon one.
Paul approaches from a distance.
Good service, huh?
Do you believe in heaven and hell?
I do. When you die, you go either
to heaven or hell. First, I was
thinking that Chuck went to heaven.
Wearing those white robes, playing
harps and singing all the time.
But Chuck'd be bored, you know. So
then I was thinking he decided to
go to hell. More parties and stuff
there. But all those people at the
service... They all loved him.
That many people love a guy, he's

spends alternate weekends in hell.
I think he had the biggest heart of
any man I've ever met.
How! Big! Was it!
Pause. Eric gives Paul a nasty look.
Yeah, Chuck was really cool. Man

okay. Everybody deals with it in
their own way.
So if you don't believe in heaven
and hell, what do you think happens
to us after we die?
You ask a lot of damned questions.
Come on. What do you think happens
to us after we die?
I don't know. I guess we...
Yeah. Through shared memories of
us... our souls spread across the
Dude, that is so deep. Dissipate.
I'm kicking your ass right now.
Neither one moves.
I think Chuck's in heaven and he's

Maybe Andy Kaufman's opening for
Maybe. Look, I'm gonna bring the
car around. Take your time.
Paul leaves. Eric watches him go.
Eric pulls a smoke bomb from a pocket. He places the smoke
bomb on the ground and lights the fuse. Colored smoke curls
from the bomb. Eric stands back and watches the smoke for a
Then he leaves. We watch the smoke flicker and dance.
