I Heart Huckabees

- Who's your friend?
-Jay Wendorff. But it's not his apartment.

- It's his girlfriend's.
- What's her name?

Uh, Kelly. Kelly Coulter.
So, okay, that's two.

One time at Schottinger's
photo archive...

second time
as the doorman.

Third, I see this man,
he's in a van at the mall.

- What are you doing at the mall?
- I'm working.

- I'm making a statement for the open spaces.
- [ Horn Honking ]

Yeah, he's back.
You crazy bastard.

You don't plant no tree
in this parking lot!

I gotta come take that tree,
remove it and let traffic through.

You'rejust creatin'
more work for me.

- They're not always meaningful.
- Yeah, it's meaningful.

- Meaningful how?
- That's what I want you to find out.

- About your life.
- Yeah, about my life.

And about the whole thing.
About the universe, you know? The big one.

I mean, should I keep doing
what I'm doing? Is it hopeless?

Mr. Markovski, we see
a lot of people in here...

who claim they want to know
the ultimate truth about reality.

They want to peer under the surface
at the big everything...

but this can be a very painful
process full of surprises.

It can dismantle the world
as you know it.

That's why most people prefer to remain
on the surface of things.

Maybe you should go home.
Let sleeping dogs lie.

Take it easy.
What do you say?

I say don't give me
the brush-off. Please.

I want to know.
This is big.

- Have you ever transcended space and time?
- Yes. No.

Uh, time not space. No, I don't know
what you're talking about.

I take it you don't
make very much money, Mr. Markovski.

Is that gonna be a problem?
Are you expensive, what you do?

We have a sliding scale.
Some of our clients pay $30 a week.

Some of our wealthy clients
pay several thousand a week.

I can't believe you guys actually exist.
How long have you been doing this?

- Seventeen years, 352 cases.
- [ Laughs ] That's crazy.

I'm gonna have to ask you
to please steer clear of my office...

because my work situation
is a little shaky, all right?

You want us to stay
away from your job?

Yeah. If you come snooping
around my office...

it could make me look unstable
and it could hurt me.
