I Heart Huckabees

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.

I want you
to meet my colleague.

- Bernard?
- Uh-huh.

- This is Mr. Markovski.
- Hi.

- He's going to have to be pro bono.
- Okay. Sounds good.

Thank you very much
for taking on my case.

- Oh, you're welcome. You're welcome.
- Hold on.

- He hasn't signed a contract.
- Let's do this and then we'll get to the contract.

- It's too much too soon.
- It's always too much too soon.
That's the nature of the beast.

- Approach, patience, finesse.
- Will you stop?

- Come on.
- We need to start with his specifics, Bernard.

We need to go past logic though.
Come on. Let's go.

- Give me a kiss. Come on.
- Okay.

Will you tell me where
we're having dinner tonight?

- Korean barbecue.
- Really?

Okay, let's get started.
Is this part
of my investigation?

Yes. Say this blanket represents all the matter
and energy in the universe, okay?

You, me, everything.
Nothing has been left out, all right?
All the particles, everything.
