Justin Foley: “I have to talk to you. Jess...please. I... I’ve been walking around all night. I’ve got no place to leave, ok? Shit...shit’s so fucked up…. Just talk to me. Last night, I...I walked every street in this shitty ass town. And I ended up by the water, by the docks. I climbed up this crane, all the way up there, and I could...I could see the whole city. And I was gonna jump. Or shoot myself. But I couldn’t. Because I couldn’t stop thinking about you. I can’t stop (Jess leaves. Justin turns around). Tell me what you want me to do, and I’ll do it. I’ll fucking go to the school. I’ll talk to the cops. I’ll kill Bryce. If that’s what you want, I’ll kill him with my bare hands and pay the price. Just please tell me what you want.
