Donnie Darko doesn't get along too well with his family, his teachers, and his classmates; but he does manage to find a sympathetic friend in Gretchen, who agrees to date him. He has a compassionate psychiatrist, who discovers hypnosis is the means to unlock hidden secrets. His other companion may not be a true ally. Donnie has a friend named Frank, a large bunny which only Donnie can see. When an engine falls off a plane and destroys his bedroom, Donnie is not there. Both the event, and Donnie's escape, seem to have been caused by supernatural events. Donnie's mental illness, if such it is, may never allow him to find out for sure.

That's some good shit
Deus ex machina
That cellar door is the most beautiful
You're an agnostic
'A storm is coming
Do you still think about girls a lot
How's it feel to have a wacko for a son
Dear Roberta Sparrow
I I know I'm not the best communicator
I like you a lot
How can you do that

How much are they paying you to do this
I hope you get molested
Guess he was sleepgolfing
