Doyle and Dando go to a crack house in Pontiac and use Cubitt's money to get $30 worth of drugs: He gets a $20 rock and Dando is left with the rest.
They have their own glass crack pipes -- his and hers -- and smoke while driving the back streets of Pontiac.
For several days, their lives have been stuck in the same cycle: buying crack, smoking it and then trying to get more money by borrowing from friends and family, pawning things or cheating drug dealers. They haven't had sex in more than a week. Right now, Doyle has only one desire: the next rock of crack cocaine.
"If we get stopped by the police, I'm not going back to prison," he says. "I'd rather die. I'd rather take a couple of officers out."
