Une belle fille comme moi

Hey, got a butt?
No, thank you
What a jerk!
I'm not offering
I'm asking for a butt
A cigarette! Get it?
Oh, I see, excuse me
I don't smoke

So the connection between Pa's
accident and...

What they say I did this time
Like my lawyer says, if I'd had
a happy childhood

I won't be here today
He said it right out
That's what my lawyer says
Mrs. Bliss, did you really kill your father?
Tell me the truth
It was like this, see?
A fate-bet
A fate-bet! You know...
Whenever Pa juiced up
he'd kick my ass

I'd had it, know what I mean?
So, by taking away the ladder
I'm betting

If the old man sees his lift's gone
He'll yell and then
beat the shit out of me

But if he doesn't notice, Bang!
I win

And I won!
Ain't that something?
That's fatality!
But let's not talk about all that
I don't want to get you depressed
Mind if I step out for a minute?
Here, hold my cigarette
I gotta go!
The expression "fate-bet" is
very significant

And I will try to determine
its precise meaning

It is probably a rationalization
Mrs. Bliss uses to reject
her responsibility and her guilt feelings
