A partier asks Jamie and others, "You guys wanna smoke some weed?"
Partier: "It's just Chilean weed, man."
Jamie: "Yeah, yeah, well, I read The Doors of Perception, you know, and he describes it basically as... like we have a reducing valve in our consciousness..."
A man divides powder on a mirror.
Partier: "Try to be in a good mood, too..."
Jamie snorts through a rolled up bill. "Is that Chilean cocaine?"
"Yeah, it's Chilean cocaine,..."
Jamie: "Can I get some of this, because I haven't had very good cocaine in Chile."
More snorting.
