I really am. Later.
How you like to get busted
week before grad?
You lack discipline.
Im gonna miss you in the fall McGregor.
Narcs are an endangered species.
Theyre not bright.
Instead of flying south they fly up
their own ass and mate with themselves
And what comes out. McGregor!
And if I catch you smoking dope around
campus, you ass is mine.
Are you crazy? These are precision
instruments you could snap a blade.
I didnt touch your machines.
You didnt?
I didnt come here to play games.
Then why did you come?
To point a killer at a finger. Go
ahead, everyone else in town has.
Maybe they know something.
They dont know nothing.
All the years I gave them
winners they loved me.
One accident where a child
gets a blood clot and
its my fault and Im out on my ass.
I say you got off easy.
Listen I didnt kill your sister.
I loved her.
Loved you lying bastard you
and your stupid track team.
I didnt kill anyone. I give my
life to Laura and all my kids.
I pushed them I yelled at them,
that didnt mean I didnt care.
I spent 4 years with Laura
I molded her I shaped her
She was precision she was power.
Like a machine?
Im sorry I have a lot to
do. Why did you come?
I came for an answer I think I got it
Well meet again Michaels
Yeah I guess we will.
Hey give me my ball.
Listen coach Im really

Coach Michaels looks like you
had yourself a pretty good deal.
Surrounded by all that fine young stuff.
You got lipstick on you.
To bad you blew it
Dont treat me like shit coach I
can hurt you bad. If I put my mind to it.
You son of a bitch.

You know its a really nice night.
Must be nice to piss anywhere.

Im not saying youre right.
Of course she can come to that.
Shell be there at 4 o clock.
Shes not supposed to miss
graduation exercise.
Its miss Fisk she is fit to be tied.
Tony has not been home all night.
What does she want? She needs someone
to crab at and Im not important enough.
Why me I dont know where the damn
kid is. Tell her that shes on line 2.
Tell here what? If I knew Id
have your job.
I dont have the time just tell
her Im not here.
I do lots of things for you Mr.
Guglioni, but lying is not one of them
Hi Ms. Fisk. How are you,
yes I did hear.
Apparently some of the kids didnt
get home last night.
I am and Im not.
There good kids all of them.
All from the same track team.
I certainly would if the were mine.
I certainly will Ms. Fisk.

doing this to me.
This is their graduation not mine.
I am calling this all off.
I got a thousand people waiting for me.
Mr. Guglionis office hes right here.
I told you I didnt want to
speak to more people.
You tell the truth on your own time.
its Ms. Brentwood, Paulas mother
wants to talk to you.
Im not here Blondie, tell them
jokes tell them lies.
Just tell them to stop bugging me.
Mr. Guglioni? Who let you in?
From now on its fly or fall
on their own.
Their probably just raising hell.
Neither do I. Thats why Im here.
Hey chief. Whats the good word?
Wheres your badge?
I must have lost it.
Heres a list of home rooms,
check em out.
Got you covered. What if
theyre not there?
Then you write in your
report not there.
Should I look for them?
No McGregor were here to make
a report. Thats all.
About a bunch of irresponsible
inconsiderate kids,
about to fly out of their nest
and shit all over us.
So make your report and lets go.
I get Closter phobic just being
around schools.
Thats a good one.
Impressive isnt it?
Its too bad about coach Michaels.
Yes it is. It is a pity.
He was a fine coach.
Thats the way it is in public life.
Youre only as good as you last mistake.
Sobering thought isnt it?
How is your report going?
Im working on it.
Coach Michaels Im inspector Helliman.
Six seniors didnt make
it home last night.
Do you know anything about it?
You didnt see or hear anything
theres nothing you can tell me?
They were all on your track team.
I have no track team.
In case you hadnt heard Ive
been canned. I heard.
If youll excuse me I have
to finish packing.

planning a big graduation
day surprise. Thats all.

My whole life was changed
in just 30 seconds.
We were gonna be married the
day after graduation day.

Kevin are you alright?
He killed them.
I tried to get him to tell you.
Could you come to the
station and make a statement?
A statement of what?
A record of What happened,
what you saw what he said to you.
Try to make sense of this mess.
Ill go with you. No I dont
want you involved.
Did you ever see anything so awful?
You work with people day
after day week after week.
Month after month, year after year.
Could you get me Lauras trophy I
want it before I leave.
Lauras trophy? Kevin picked it up
today with Lauras diploma.
Are you sure?
This morning he said that you said
you wanted him to have it
Kevins not the type of boy
to lie is he?
No of course not, thank you.
Were getting married after
graduation just like we planned.
I though you loved her?
What kind of sister are you
shes your flesh and blood.
Laura loves peace and quiet.
Dont you sweat heart.
They were so awful to her.
They just stuck her in the
ground like she never existed.
Nobody would talk abut her.
You couldnt mention her name.
But I set them straight now theyre
all dead and gone.
Terrible I dont know what more to say.
Cant you stay longer.
I got to be on that plane
tomorrow morning
Im sorry mom I really am.
They took her from the grave.
What did you come here for?
Never nothing but trouble.
You woke up Anne in the
middle of the night.
Come on, everyone to bed now.

through a lot.
Sleep tight. Dont let the
bed bugs bite.
