RANDY

I'm not some garden variety voyeur, you know.
I don't get to see this, Seth.
I don't mean the rest of it, all the other guys, before. You woke up this morning together. You shared a bathroom sink. When he was done with work, he came home. To you. I'm not anybody's home, Seth. I never have been.
I'm just saying.
Don't tell me it's not real. It looks real to the kid. Looks real to me.
You don't earn happiness, Seth. Everyone's entitled to happiness. It's out there. It exists. You just need to have the guts to reach out and grab it.
I envy the hell out of you.
