Once in awhile they talk, ending up on the roof of his apartment where he keeps pigeons. Amelia indicates to Weed that she is there on vacation and the spaceship is due to pick her up the next day. When Weed's buddy Payne, finds out about his alliance, he tries to convince Weed to stop and turn in Amelia, but Weed tells him he is in love. with all those women. Soon after, Payne decides he can no longer protect him. Weed is put on the most-wanted list by The True World Forces. Finally, Weed and Amelia make their way towards the spaceship. In doing so, however, Weed is in a gunfight with Payne and is wounded in the shoulder . Amelia pulls Weed into the spaceship as she speaks in a moral tone and says: "You believe in gun power to protect yourself from destruction. I believe in pleasure for protection." And, our couple jets off into space.
