Dead Wrong (2024) Movie Script

(soft tense music)
(engine whirring)
(soft tense music continues)
(door thuds)
(door thuds)
(soft tense music continues)
- (chuckles) I don't expect
to ever hear from you again.
(soft tense music continues)
(bag thuds)
(soft tense music continues)
(object thuds)
(Jacob thuds)
I was gonna let you go, really,
but I just couldn't.
It's a million dollars
for shit's sake.
(dramatic music beats)
(tense music)
(ominous music)
(bird screeches)
(birds chirping)
(tense music)
(engine whirring)
(upbeat music)
(tires crunching)
Ooh, even after everything
- Thank you so much.
I was beginning to think
I'd be spending the
night under a bush.
- What the fuck are you doing?
I don't think I've seen
anyone hitchhike since 1970.
Where you goin'?
- Back to school, right
outside of Pomona.
- Cool. What's your name?
- Sandy. What's yours?
- Get in, Sandy.
(traffic whirring)
I must admit I'm
a bit obsessed
Up at night I
can't get no rest
Just thinkin' about you
- Man, this car is sweet.
Must make a lotta money to
afford a ride like this.
What do you do?
- Ah, I suggest you
just stay in school.
- Hey, it looks like
that guy's in trouble.
We should stop and help.
- Nah, you're my good deed
for the rest of the day.
- Come on, short stuff.
(ominous music)
Where the fuck's your heart?
I don't wanna have to
blow off your balls,
but if I did, it
wouldn't be the first.
Pull over.
(stamp thuds)
- Hi.
May I?
You know, it might up your sex
appeal to be seen on the arm
of one of the more eligible
lawyers around here.
(stamp thuds)
Don't let my work
appearance fool you.
I can get kinda crazy
when the sun sets
around here on this
old courthouse.
What do you say, Myra?
You, me, some Mexican?
Food, not a Mexican.
Maybe a little salsa
dancing. Salsa.
What do you think?
I enjoy our talks. I look
forward to them every week.
And I love the ensemble,
the white with the navy.
It says I'm a worker,
but I mean business.
- Next!
(footsteps tapping)
(traffic whirring)
(mellow music)
- Tough day, Counselor?
Little early for your call time.
- Early? It's almost 11.
Harry, you're supposed
to make people feel good
when they come into your
establishment. (sighs)
Just tryin' to save the
world one redneck at a time.
- Good on ya.
It's way too much
pressure for me.
(Ethan chuckles)
So far
Every time people they
always seem to change
Who I think they are
- Keep an eye on that
one for me, will ya?
So gone
(tense music)
- Your parents know this
is how you get around?
Bummin' rides and
takin' advantage
of the kindness of others?
- Okay, mister whatever
the fuck your name is,
let's go meet my friend.
- You got it.
- Get the fuck outta the car.
- Okay.
- Let's go.
- Okay.
Okay, take it easy.
(tense music)
- How much cash you got?
- I don't know,
six, seven grand.
- Wow, nice!
- Let's make this simple.
We're gonna take your money,
your clothes, your car.
We're gonna tape you up
and leave you in the Buick.
Eventually someone
will come find you,
and if they don't fuck
you in the ass first,
I'm sure you'll be able
to find your way home.
- [Rollie] You wanna
hear something funny?
- Why not?
- So I grew up right outside
of Coney Island in Brooklyn,
a little area called Gravesend.
It's actually one of
the first townships
that was settled in the New
Amsterdam of the 17th century.
I lived in a city's
subsidized housing project
called the Marlboro Projects.
- What the fuck is
he talking about?
- Gimme your pants and don't
put your hand in the pocket.
- Okay.
Anyway, it's 35 acres, 28
buildings, 4,600 residents.
Blacks, Italians,
Jews, Russians,
Chinese, Puerto Ricans, Irish,
I mean like everything you
could possibly imagine.
And see, when I look
back on my childhood,
it feels like I
spent the whole time
with a gun pointed in my
face, kinda like right now.
And this sounds crazy, but
there's something comforting,
you know, almost
calming about it.
It's like either
you live or you die,
or you're no longer
responsible for what happens.
You know what I mean?
- I know you must be
clinically insane.
- Here you go.
- Now hand over the rest.
- Money's right there
in that top pocket.
Jesus fuckin' Christ. The
first time you ever done this?
- [Robber] Look at
that fucking roll.
(knife squelches)
(both grunting)
(gun fires)
(Sandy gasping)
(dramatic music)
(gun fires)
(Sandy gasping)
- Yeah, fuckin'
stings, doesn't it?
Try taking deep breaths,
you know what I mean?
One at a time.
(Sandy gasping)
Open your fuckin'
mouth. Open it.
See, the problem with
you fuckin' millennials
is you rarely take
advice from people
with more experience than you,
and you have a very
hard time imagining
you could possibly die.
(gun fires)
Wrong on both counts.
(shoe squelching)
Stupid fucks.
I got my pants
all fuckin' dirty.
Even after everything
(gun fires)
That we been through
(upbeat music)
Ooh, even after everything
that we been through
All I wanna do
is be with you
(shoe tapping)
(toilet flushes)
(fist thuds)
(Ethan grunts)
- Fuck, Del!
What the fuck? You just
broke my goddamn nose!
- I'm delivering an invitation.
Mr. Barnes wants to meet
with you noon Wednesday.
- I can't, I gotta be in court!
- Shut up.
You're gonna fuckin'
be there, all right?
You're late, again.
Mr. Barnes is very
concerned. Get your ass up.
- Fuck!
- Now, you wanna handle
your responsibilities,
you understand me?
- Rollie knows I take my
obligations seriously.
- Well, maybe he's sick of
being inconvenienced by you.
Or maybe he finally thinks
you're in way over
your fuckin' head.
Either way, I wouldn't
be late if I were you.
- I'll be there Wednesday.
- Yeah, you're gonna be there.
- I said I'll be
there Wednesday.
- Clean your face.
- Ow! Fuck!
Goddamn it!
- Clean your fuckin' face.
Fix this.
Let's get you
lookin' sweet, mate.
All right, here you are.
Just like I found you.
(Ethan coughing)
- I can't fuckin' breathe.
- Now you need to
be there Wednesday.
- Fuck, I said I'd be there.
- By noon.
You fuckin' be there.
- Jesus.
Fucked up my tie,
too, ya motherfucker!
(birds chirping)
- After he beats
the guy unconscious,
poked his left fuckin'
eyeball out with a pencil.
- Who are you talkin' about?
- This new guy moved out
from Canarsie, Rollie Barnes.
He thinks he's
running the place.
Drugs, prostitution,
sports book.
Pissin' off a lotta people.
- [Vic] And the wrong people.
- Hey, Angelo, why
don't you go down there
and have a little talk with him.
Explain how shit
works around here.
- No, no!
- Ooh!
- You don't got shit, Billy.
- Would you shut up
and play the game?
- Angelo, tell Billy
what he doesn't have.
- He ain't shit,
boss man. (chuckles)
- Exactly. I call.
(chips clatter)
- Woo hoo hoo hoo!
- Oh!
- That's what I thought.
- [Vic] Damn, Billy boy.
- Poker's a lot like life.
If you have the gift
of spottin' bullshit
from what's real, it's a win.
Hey Billy, are you
cool with this?
I'm not tryin' to
break the bank, but...
- Fuckin' asshole.
(group laughs)
- Oh, Billy, Billy, Billy.
- Whatever happened with
that exercise thingy
you were workin' on?
- It's an elliptical
bike design.
- Mm.
- You oughta try it
there, chicken legs.
(both chuckle)
Ah, man, they backed out.
Too speculative.
- You know, we got this
new thing goin' on.
- Mm-hmm.
- Find privately held
businesses, buy 'em,
hand 'em off to
these stockbrokers we
got on the payroll,
they jack the stock price up,
and then we dump it,
split the profits.
It's been workin' out real well.
- Shit.
- You know, it might be
somethin' you could be good at.
All you gotta do is find
businesses that have value.
You bring 'em to
us, we negotiate.
But you know, you could kill it.
And I'll bankroll you for
the first couple months
if you need.
- Uh-uh, you don't
have to do that.
- Lemme finish.
If we're gonna be partners,
I only have one rule,
and that's no secrets,
no surprises, okay?
I don't wanna hear shit
from anybody but you ever.
And that includes everything
that you're doing.
You understand?
- Yeah.
- Here's a little advance.
Why don't you go take Barbara
out to celebrate or somethin'.
- Thank you.
- Cheers.
(glasses clink)
To new business.
- Fuck yeah.
(ominous music)
(birds chirping)
(gentle music)
- Tommy.
- All right, man.
(gate creaking)
(gentle music continues)
(Jacob chuckles)
(gentle music continues)
- Let's go home, Jake.
Yeah. Yeah, that'd be good.
(gentle music continues)
- I don't know, but he said
it was something really big
and he sounded pretty
excited about it,
which is honestly really
nice for a change.
What do you think
about this one?
- Yeah, I mean, it's
fine if you're dead set
on not getting laid tonight.
- Hmm, funny.
- I'm amazed you guys
do anything together
after being with each
other for half your lives.
I cannot imagine being with
the same guy since high school.
- (scoffs) Well,
you can't imagine
being with the same
guy since lunch.
- Yeah, so?
- Oh God, you are a slut.
- I coulda told you that.
- Actually, I think you
have told me that before.
(Billy chuckles)
- You've told her what?
You've told her that I'm a slut?
- Not often.
Sometimes. (chuckles)
- So what is the
big news that got me
into this hooker dress?
- Which is really
hot, by the way.
Jacko has a new venture going.
Totally legit and I'm in.
- Jacko? Really?
- Come on, Barb.
This is the break
we've been waiting for.
So drink up.
Maybe we'll even build
you a guest house.
- You're so full of shit.
- Yeah, he is.
(Billy chuckles)
Cheers, guys.
(glasses clinking)
(birds chirping)
- [Sarah] I wasn't sure how it
would feel to have you back.
- Will you ever forgive me?
- I already have.
The question is if you'll
ever forgive yourself.
- Afternoon, folks.
Wonderin' if you wouldn't
mind sharin' some money.
- I got nothin' for you, boys.
Why don't you step outta
the way, let us pass.
- Maybe we should just give
'em what they want, Jake.
- I'm not givin' 'em a thing.
- It's been tough
times, I won't lie.
There's been moments where
I thought you've been
through too much to
ever be happy again.
(fighters grunting)
- Jake!
Oh God!
(tense music)
(knife squelches)
- Oh God. (whimpering)
I don't feel that way anymore.
(gentle music)
You're a good man, Jacob.
And I know how I feel
and I know what I want.
(gentle music continues)
- I know the two of
you have been friends
since you were kids, but do you
remember when we were young,
you wanted to be a
professional football player?
And I dreamt of
living in Monaco.
Jacko wanted to be Ray
Liotta from "Goodfellas"
and he's the only one whose
dream actually came true.
- (scoffs) Don't
be so melodramatic.
Look, I don't claim to know
about all of Jacko's business,
but this will be in our name.
Everything by the book.
- (sighs) I don't know, babe.
Do you really
think this is worth
getting involved in
his entire world?
- Yes! Yes, it is.
I'm tired of struggling
from one venture to another.
Worked on that damn bike
design for three years
and look where it got me!
(somber music)
Got us.
Jacko's, my friend.
And he can make things happen.
It can be a whole new life.
- (scoffs) I didn't think
the life we had was so bad,
you know, you and me?
- Well, I want more.
A lot more.
(tense music)
And if this works,
maybe we can finally
discuss having that baby.
(gentle orchestral music)
- That would be nice.
(orchestral music continues)
(couple grunting)
Yeah, just like that.
(couple grunting)
- [Billy] Fuckin'
richer than Jacko.
- [Wendy] Uh-huh, yeah.
Look at my face.
- I'm gonna come.
- Look at my fuckin' face.
- Okay.
- [Billy] Open your
eyes, look at me.
(both grunting)
- Get off me.
(both laugh)
(sighs) God, is it possible
you haven't finished puberty?
(Billy laughs)
You're tryin' to kill me.
- Probably should.
Then I could at
least stop worrying
that your sister'll
find out about us.
- You're so full of shit.
You don't spend a minute
worrying about Barbara.
You just walk around like
nothing's gonna happen to you.
- I will admit that I enjoy
having this little secret.
It's like having an extra life
that's no one's
fuckin' business.
- It's called narcissism, Billy,
and you've got it in spades.
- You make it sound
like a sickness.
- What's so sick about you
fucking your wife's sister
who you've known
since she was 13?
You better not hurt her, Billy.
I swear to God, I'll
have you killed.
- That's very sweet.
- I mean it.
(sighs) What's this
I hear about you guys
trying to get pregnant?
- She told you about that, huh?
- She is my sister. She
tells me everything.
You can't be serious about this.
- No, I just, I didn't
want her givin' me shit
about workin' with Jacko.
- You two are unbelievable.
It's like you create
your own little realities
just for you two to live in.
(Billy scoffs)
She honestly thinks that
there's a part of you
that's even mature enough
to want to be a dad.
And you haven't even thought
about how this would change
your entire fucking life.
- Doesn't have to.
- Billy!
Once the baby comes,
it's all about the baby,
then all about
Barbara, then you.
You're a distant third.
And once she's pregnant,
it's over between us.
- What? Why?
- Because I'm not
gonna be blowing you
when she's
breastfeeding Baby Huey.
(Billy sighs)
(upbeat music)
Whatever happened
to our journey
Left me with nothin'
but a promise
- Ah, Ethan Boggs, Esquire.
How the hell are you?
- Hey, Rollie, thanks for
taking the time to see me.
- I'm really sorry
about your nose,
but I did ask Del to
properly, you know,
adjust your attitude
before our conversation.
- I wanted to ask,
how's your fist?
- I suspect it's much
better than your nose.
(Ethan chuckles)
(phone buzzing)
- Excuse me for
one second. Hello?
- Okay. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Gotcha. Thank you very much.
- Rollie-
- Ethan,
spare me the whole, you
know I'm good for it speech.
You know, I have to
collect one way or another.
- And you're going to.
- And there is a
disturbing trend here
of you diving deeper and
deeper into your line.
And frankly, I think it's
gonna be in your best interest
if we just cut you off now.
- But you're gonna gimme,
you're gonna gimme time
to get the 25, right?
I mean, you know what
it's like right now.
- (laughs) I like you, Boggs.
I really, I really fuckin' do,
but do you think that
I can indulge you
and not have it
affect my business?
Listen, for me to keep
the money flowing in,
I need everybody
to do their part,
and that means getting every
dollar that is owed me,
which by the way,
is now 30 large.
- (stammers) 30?
- It went up yesterday, and
in two days it's gonna be 35.
- Is this the part
of the conversation
where I worry about
my personal safety?
(both laughing)
- See? What did I
fucking tell you?
Every time this
guy comes in here,
he cracks me the
fuck up. (laughs)
- Yeah.
- Look, in my experience,
people in poor health have
a hard time getting current.
- Yeah.
- Okay?
Normally I would
just take your house,
but you don't own one.
Or I take your car,
but that thing is a
fuckin' piece of shit.
I do, however,
have a suggestion.
- Yes?
- You are my lawyer as of now.
- I can't be your
lawyer, Rollie.
- Oh, no, no, no.
On the contrary, yes you
can, and yes you will.
- Look, it's not that I,
I'm willing to help
you out once in a while
if there's something
I can do for you,
I've always done that for you,
but I can't be involved
in your business.
'cause I'll get disbarred.
It's all I got.
- Well, then I suggest you be
particularly fuckin' careful.
- I can't be your attorney!
Del, Del, come on now.
- All right, shut up.
- Del, Del, just
come on, just...
Hey Del, can I just talk
to you for one second?
- Take a breath.
- Take a what?
(fist thudding)
(Ethan grunting)
(fist thuds)
(Ethan grunts)
- It's all right. All right.
Now, that's better.
Look, now you're probably
gonna be pissin'
blood for a while.
Don't be concerned with that.
I didn't actually
hit you hard enough
to do any real damage
to the kidney, huh?
So you're fine. Let's go.
Get back in there.
- So, Counselor,
do we have a deal?
- Yes, we have a deal.
- Excellent. Come sit, join me.
(Ethan coughing)
So what'll it be?
- Scotch.
(tense music)
- Ethan, guys like you,
I mean maybe not as
smart, as educated,
but guys addicted to
booze and to gambling,
they fall behind.
They never get caught up.
It doesn't usually end well.
I mean, one thing that I've
learned in this business
is that God wants
gamblers to lose.
So look, I don't know if
you went to law school
because you wanted to or
'cause maybe you thought
it would help you get some ass.
Regardless, you should consider
yourself very fortunate.
(tense music continues)
(Jacob clears throat)
- You lookin' for
me? I'm Ethan Boggs.
- Yeah, my name is Jacob Glass.
My wife and I, we
want to adopt a child.
- Take a seat.
Can I get you a cup of coffee?
- [Jacob] Just water'll
be fine, thank you.
- Good choice. It's
been in there a while.
- Oh, thank you.
My wife is a very good woman.
If anyone was ever
built from the ground up
to be a mother, it's my Sarah.
We lost a pregnancy a
while back and now, well,
it's just not gonna
happen, not for us, so...
- I'm sorry to hear that.
So now you both settled
on the idea of adoption?
- Yeah.
- Well, you do realize
it's a lengthy process
for you and Sarah.
You're both gonna have to
take classes to get certified.
Then the state has to also
investigate both of you
to make sure you're okay.
They can inspect your home
to make sure it's
suitable for the child.
Then eventually you're
gonna have to appear
in front of a judge
who will make the final
decision on the adoption.
- I'm afraid none of that's
gonna be possible, Mr. Boggs.
- You've done time.
(soft somber music)
- I'm told you can help us.
- Gonna be expensive.
- How much you
expect that to be?
- It depends on
the birth mother,
if there's any medical
expenses, my fee.
Anywhere between, I
dunno, 10, $25,000.
(Jacob chuckles)
- If that's what it takes,
you'll have the money.
- Well, Mr. Glass,
why don't you leave
your phone number here,
and I'll start checkin' around.
And if something suitable
comes up, I'll let you know.
(somber music continues)
- So, Dr. Kawa seems pretty
intent on doing a C-section
given my past history
and everything,
but I don't really know
how I feel about it.
I kind of always imagined
I'd have a natural birth
so I could scream obscenities
at you while I'm doing it.
- Sounds pretty good to me.
Just schedule the delivery,
pop in and pop out.
Like taking the
car in for service.
- You asshole.
(both chuckle)
You know I'll still find a
way to scream at you, right?
- Fair enough.
- He also keeps mentioning
this other smaller hospital,
like 20 minutes outside of
town called Western Memorial?
He said it's where he started
and that it's really
well-equipped and charming.
He seems to really love it.
- Huh.
- And now, a story that many
of you will find shocking.
When a toddler in Florida
suffering from Down syndrome
underwent a DNA
test, it was revealed
that he and another
newborn were mistakenly
and tragically
exchanged in the small,
independent hospital in
which they were born.
This follows an earlier
report by this network
regarding an alarming
number of cases
of gross negligence
occurring at similar small,
often rural hospitals that
are improperly equipped.
I'm now going to bring
in our own Laura Smith
who is on assignment
just outside of Orlando,
where a local attorney
representing both
sets of parents
is bringing a civil suit against
the hospital in question.
- I was thinking
that little hospital
might be a perfect
place to have our baby.
- Oh yeah, I know,
but do you think
it's really worth
taking the risk?
- Well, of course not.
But what if Memorial
is perfectly safe?
It's still the same doctor.
- (chuckles) There's a lot
to work with these days.
- [Billy] I got time.
- (sighs) God,
these damn hormones.
- I don't understand
the problem.
You're doing great, man.
I mean, we got a nice
little business goin' here.
- That is the problem:
a little business.
- Look, don't get ahead
of yourself, bro, okay?
A year ago you were worried
about paying your mortgage.
Remember how thrilled you
were when I brought you in?
You got a chance to make a
serious chunk of change here.
- Yeah.
(phone ringing)
- (sighs) Shit.
What's up?
- [Vic] Just got a
call from Marseilles.
Got a big problem.
- What the fuck is it this time?
- Those two Russians,
the brothers that were
transporting the computers.
- What the fuck did they
put in those containers?
- Humans.
(soft ominous music)
- You say humans?
- [Vic] Yeah, like 10
teenage girl humans.
- Those motherfuckers.
Fuckin' scumbags.
I fuckin' knew it.
I fuckin' knew it.
- That ain't all.
When they got to Morocco,
three of them were dead.
- Fuck! Fuck.
(phone clatters)
(Jacko sighs)
You wanna take a ride?
- What the hell
are you gonna do?
- You want what I got, you
gotta go all the way. (scoffs)
Let's see how big your
nuts are. (sniffs)
- Shit.
(TV host chattering)
(audience applauding)
(visitor knocking)
(gun rattling)
- Jacko, we weren't
expecting you.
- Since when do
business partners
have to make an appointment?
Pavel, nice Chopper.
- We are trained
to expect anything.
- May I?
(tense music)
I assume you're here because
of that business in Morocco.
- That would be correct.
- I regret your people
weren't properly notified,
but the cargo
changed last minute.
Someone in the organization
was supposed to let you know.
He fucked up.
When I find out who
the fuck that is,
I'm gonna send you three
fingers for each girl who died.
This won't happen again.
- Well, that's good.
But we don't sell
girls into slavery.
It's disgusting.
There are no surprises in
this business, you know that.
There's a price to pay.
- Okay. Hundred
thousand dollars.
- 200.
(Pavel speaking in Russian)
(Serge speaking in Russian)
(tense music)
So, are we good?
(suspenseful music continues)
(gun firing)
(Serge gasping)
(gun firing)
- Now we're good.
(tense music)
- Wow, Jacko. This is
some place you got here.
I mean, it's inspiring to
a guy like me. (chuckles)
- How's California
treating you, Rollie?
- Eh, just like Brooklyn.
Bagels and knishes on every
fuckin' corner. (chuckles)
Here. Been a very good month.
It's all there. You can
count it if you want.
- What's wrong,
man? I trust you.
Till the first time I
find out you're short.
(group laughing)
- Don't worry about that.
I'ma be your best earner.
Unless of course I already am.
- Watch yourself, shorty.
- I hate it when
people call me that.
- I hear you've been
dealin' a lotta oxy.
- Yeah, these beach bums
can't get enough of it.
We can't even keep the shit in stock.
Makin' us a lotta money.
- Hey look, that shit
kills people, all right?
I don't wanna see it
anywhere around here.
I don't need some
16-year-old OD-ing on me.
You understand?
If I see any, I'm shuttin'
you down. You get it?
- Hey, of course.
Listen, you got nothin'
to worry about with me.
- (scoffs) I'm
surprised you stayed
outta jail this long, man.
- (laughs) So am I.
Found myself a great
fuckin' lawyer.
This guy, Ethan Boggs.
- I never heard of him.
- Hey, he was doin' small
stuff, adoptions and shit.
Guy is into me deep.
As long as I let
him keep playin',
he's gonna be my bitch forever.
And Del here keeps him focused?
- Motivated.
- Motivated.
- Maybe we could use him, huh?
- [Rollie] Jacko,
whatever you want.
What's mine is yours.
- I appreciate that.
- All right, so we'll
get outta your hair.
I'll talk to you
soon. All right.
- [Del] Cheers, mate.
- Cheers.
- Later, shorty.
- I fuckin' heard that.
- That fuckin' guy
is trouble, Jackie.
You mark my words.
- Hmm. We'll see.
(upbeat music)
- I just need your
initial and signature.
You know, Rollie,
me doing all these
trumped up real estate deals,
eventually I'm
gonna get disbarred,
and then what good am
I gonna be for you?
- None, to be honest, and I
genuinely am sorry, Ethan,
'cause at some point
when the time comes,
this is probably gonna ruin
your whole miserable
fuckin' life.
But for the time being,
your job is to make sure my
shit doesn't get fucked up,
and as long as you owe me money,
it's just the way it's gonna be.
- You're a real
sweetheart, Rollie.
(Rollie chuckles)
Well, I do have some other
business to attend to.
- Um, I'm gonna need you
to head down to County
and get the Squirrel.
- Squirrel Bailey?
- Yeah, yeah, he got pulled
in on a DUI last night.
He already missed half
a day of collections.
- You want me to...
I can't be showing my
face down at County.
Everybody's gonna know
that I'm the mob lawyer!
- Hey, listen, Boggs,
I'm pretty sure everybody
thinks that already.
(upbeat funky music)
(Squirrel chuckles)
(door thuds)
- Man, that was so cool!
I've never had a lawyer
get me outta jail before.
- Well, I'm glad I could make
it special for you, Squirrel.
- Hey listen, they're gonna
take my driver's license,
and I would be really grateful
if you'd help represent me
in court when I gotta go.
- Squirrel, I'm not
a courtroom lawyer.
You're better off
gettin' somebody else.
- (scoffs) But you're
the one that I want!
Rollie's gonna want me to keep
working the streets for him.
We're on the same
team, aren't we?
- Thick as thieves.
- Yes! Yeah! (laughs)
That's what I'm talkin' about!
Hey, hold on. I got
somethin' for ya.
Don't go anywhere.
- No, I don't want...
- Naw, I'll be right back!
- I don't want anything.
- [Squirrel] I'll be right back!
(mellow music)
- Jesus Christ. What
the hell is that?
- Yeah, it's an antique.
- I don't want
that (grunting)...
- [Squirrel] There ya go.
- Jesus Christ, Squirrel.
- Yeah, one thing's for sure.
Few things are
likely to discourage
an argument like this old puppy.
- I wouldn't even know
what to do with it.
I've never even
shot a gun before!
- Hey, sometimes a man needs a
little confidence, Mr. Boggs.
This baby as sure as
shit give you that.
- It's a pleasure,
Squirrel. It really is.
We need to spend
less time together.
Seriously, we should.
(upbeat music)
(engine rumbling)
- See ya later.
(upbeat music continues)
On the state of her mind
I believed in God
Not this time around
- Mr. Boggs! My
name is Billy Evans.
- Should I know you?
- Not yet.
Can I join you?
- Oh yeah.
Just don't cry in your drink.
My quota for sad stories
is pretty much filled
up for the day.
- Yeah, so I've heard.
- Oh.
- Have a vodka straight up.
Another round from
my sad friend.
- So you've heard. Heard?
What exactly have you heard?
And you're not my
friend, friend.
- No, but I could be by
the end of the night.
You and I are related
by mutual colleagues.
Your boy Rollie.
Yeah, he works with
someone I work with.
And the word is that
you are pretty stuck.
- You know? This isn't sounding
very interesting to me.
- Would you be more interested
if I were to make
your debt disappear?
- Not necessarily. No.
- How does $50,000 sound to you?
- Sounds like it's
gonna be too little
for whatever you're about
to ask me to do, friend.
- I want you to
find a good home...
A loving home for
a newborn baby.
Now if you can do
that, let's make it 75.
Enough to get Rollie
off your back,
for you to start acting
like a man again.
- It's a lot easier
said than done.
You have my attention.
- Has to be a couple
without children.
A couple who's willing to
keep their mouths shut.
When I call you, you take the
baby, you give it to them,
and you and I need to
never see each other again.
- It's a dirty little
business you're doing.
- Oh, okay. (chuckles)
This is coming from
the guy who reps
a drug dealer and a pimp!
- So when are we expecting
this bundle of joy
to be delivered?
- Three weeks.
Here's my number.
If you have the right
couple, you need to call me.
- Am I to assume
this baby's yours?
- $75,000 and freedom from
Rollie Barnes, Mr. Boggs.
It seems to me that's all
you really need to know.
(hand slaps)
Have another one on me.
(tense music)
- Harry.
- I still don't understand
how you could pass
on one of the best teaching
facilities on the West Coast
in favor of some
hospital that looks like
it's straight out of
"The Andy Griffith Show."
- It's sentiment,
Wendy, something you'd
know nothing about.
- Fuck you.
- Lovely.
- Everyone needs to calm down.
There's nothing to worry about.
It's the same doctor,
same equipment,
and better nursing care.
All in all, it's just
gonna be more homey.
- I think you're both whacked.
Then again, I'm not the
one who's gonna end up
with some screaming
little creature
whose end goal is to destroy
your lives as you know it.
(Barbara sighs)
(soft tense music)
(staff chattering)
- You'll enjoy the room.
It has a lovely view
and very good light.
The bathroom and shower
are just outside.
- At least they have
indoor plumbing.
- [Nurse] Let's get you
into a gown, into the bed.
Dr. Kawa is on his way.
- (sighs) God, I'm so nervous.
- I don't blame you.
- Hey, I think I'm gonna
grab a cup of coffee
while you're settling in.
You want anything?
- No. Have everything I
need right here, babe.
(soft tense music continues)
(suspenseful music)
(camera thuds)
(suspenseful music continues)
(dramatic music)
- It's time.
(Billy sighs)
(baby cooing)
(gentle music)
- Oh my God.
Oh, look at him.
He's so gorgeous.
Hi, Robbie.
Hi, Robbie, it's Mommy.
Oh my God, he's so beautiful.
Isn't he beautiful,
Billy? Look at him.
(tense music)
- We were such idiots.
You know that, right?
- I don't know. It
was a different time.
Things change.
- No, we can't
justify what we did.
Makes me sick to my stomach.
- Oh, you'll get over it.
You always do.
(tense music continues)
- Why don't you two go
home and get some rest?
There's nothing you can do here.
They're both exhausted.
They're gonna sleep
for quite a while.
- Sounds like a plan to me.
Oh hey, you take good
care of them, okay?
- Well, if they're
going to be sleeping...
You'll leave the baby in the
room with her, won't you?
I wanna be here
when she wakes up.
- Of course.
(soft ominous music)
(electronic chime trills softly)
(tense music)
(switches clicking)
(tense music continues)
(water pattering)
(tense music continues)
(monitor beeping)
(soft tense music)
(curtain scraping)
(monitor beeping)
(soft tense music continues)
(soft ominous music)
(baby coos)
(soft ominous music continues)
- We're on.
(phone buzzing)
- Yeah?
- [Ethan] Jacob.
This is Ethan Boggs.
- This is the call?
- [Ethan] This is it.
(soft tense music)
(ominous music)
- Here's the 75.
And here's the baby.
(ominous music continues)
Hey, make sure it's a good home.
- Yeah.
- And make sure I never hear
a word from them or you.
- You got it.
(ominous music continues)
(liquid sloshing)
(soft suspenseful music)
- Hey, you're up.
- Denise, hi, I was
just trying to call you.
Is little Robbie okay?
(dramatic music)
Denise, where is he?
What is going on, Denise?
- I'll be back.
- Denise, where are you going?
Where is my baby?
(engine whirring)
(soft tense music)
- Here, easy.
- Oh hey, buddy. Hey.
- I got something.
Wait a second.
It's like a baby starter kit.
Diapers and some bottles
and baby formula.
- Thank you.
Thank you, Mr. Boggs.
- You got the money?
- Oh yeah, fuck. Sorry.
I got it right here.
You okay, buddy?
That's all of it.
How do I know that...
- What?
- Some fella's not gonna come
knockin' on my door someday
with a pistol lookin' for him?
- I can't tell you
much, but I can tell you
it was the father who
arranged the whole thing,
and he's not gonna
be looking for you,
and he doesn't wanna
know anything about
you or your family.
Frankly, neither do I.
- I guess that's it, then.
Thank you.
(somber music)
(engine rumbling)
(ominous music)
(Ethan sighs)
- Fuck me.
(gentle music)
- Jacob, what in the...
What have you been...
- [Jacob] Say hello
to your new son.
- No, no, stop.
Let me go, please.
I don't want a sedative.
I don't want a sedative!
Let me go, please!
I just want my baby.
I just want my baby!
- What the hell is going on?
- (cries out) Billy!
Billy. (sobbing)
- My baby. My baby is gone.
Robbie's gone. He's missing.
- Missing?
- He's gone.
- How can he be missing?
This is a mistake, right?
- Okay, everyone
should leave right now.
This woman is
recovering from surgery
and is gonna hurt herself
unless we calm her down.
- No, no, no, no, no. Please,
please, please do something.
You can't leave. Please.
- Okay, I'm not leaving.
I'm not leaving her.
- Promise me you'll...
Baby, look at me.
Robbie's gone.
Our son is gone. (crying)
Please promise me.
Promise me you'll do
something about it.
- We'll find him.
- We can't lose him.
(crying) We can't.
Please, baby,
promise me. Promise.
(phone buzzing and ringing)
(Drake groans)
- I'm gettin' too old
for this shit, Harold.
- Listen, someone grabbed
a newborn last night
at Western Memorial.
Place is crawlin' with cops
and media's not far behind.
I need you to get over
there as soon as possible.
This one's got all the
makings of a real shit storm.
- (sighs) Oh goddamn
it. All right, yeah.
Right, right. I'm out the door.
(hand smacks)
- Hey! Oh!
You moron.
- I'm sorry, babe.
We gotta get up.
It's almost seven.
- [Marsha] We didn't
get to sleep until five.
- (chuckles) You
insist on layin' there.
- Not in your
lifetime, pal. (sighs)
- Okay, Marcy, you
are leaving me-
- Marsha.
- Marsha?
- Marsha.
(Drake laughs)
(mellow blues music)
- Here I thought by now
you'd be collecting
some fat pension,
livin' with some assisted
living tubes in your nose,
a nurse you call mama.
- (chuckles) This is an
important client, huh?
- Our biggest.
- Well, that's too bad
'cause it's a major fuck-up.
Perp walks through an
unsecure automated doorway,
walks out with the baby.
- (chuckles) They are
not gonna be happy
about this downtown.
I'm gonna go inside and look
around if that's okay with you.
- No salt off my nuts, brother.
Told the press that we'd
have a statement for 'em
in about 20 minutes.
(Drake grunts)
(detective sighs)
- Can't keep him, Jacob.
- Why?
- Because he belongs
to somebody else.
- Yeah. Somebody
who didn't want him.
Probably just some
kids made a mistake
and wanted to make
the problem go away.
(somber music)
I believe God wants
us to have this child.
I believe he picked
you to be his mother.
- Honey...
- What should we name him?
- The Bible tells us the
answer to that question.
Joseph, the son of Jacob.
(somber music continues)
(tense music)
(staff chattering)
(suspenseful music)
- We just want our baby back.
We've waited so
long to have him.
Please, if you've
taken our baby,
bring him back to the hospital.
That's all we care about,
that he's safe and well.
Please, anyone out there,
help us find our son.
(tense music)
Listen, try to have faith
this will all work out.
I know it doesn't seem like
it, but try to be strong.
It'll be okay. You'll see.
We'll have a great life.
- Billy.
(soft ominous music)
I didn't wanna disturb her.
My God. I don't
know what to say.
- Thanks, man.
It's a nightmare we're
not wakin' up from.
- What did the cops say?
- Too early to know.
- Well, those motherfuckers
better do their job for once.
Whatever piece of shit
did this, whoever it is,
doesn't know what kinda
shit he just got himself in.
When I find this motherfucker...
When I find this motherfucker
I'll kill him myself.
That's a promise. Yeah.
- Hey, I'm sure there's gonna
be a lot of pokin' around,
you know, personal stuff.
Business stuff.
I just want you to know
that all the paperwork's
clean just like you showed me.
- Yeah, yeah, yeah,
that's good. That's good.
Just take it easy, right?
If you need anything,
just let me know.
I'm a phone call away.
Anything you need, okay?
It'll be all right.
We're gonna find him.
- I'm really sorry, Billy.
- Thanks, Ang.
I should get back.
- Okay, yeah. We'll let you go.
(tense music)
- Dresses nicely.
- Thank you.
- Yeah, yes, that's what
I'm talkin' about. The slit.
Well, look who the fuck it is!
- Hi, Rollie. Hi, Tina.
- Hi, Ethan.
You know it's been dead all day,
so how about a
blowjob for half off?
- Hey, hey, hey, how
the fuck am I supposed
to make any money if you're
just giving your shit away?
- Oh, come on, Rollie.
Haven't you ever heard
of an employee discount?
- (laughs) Employee discount.
That's fuckin' funny.
All right, ladies, it's
time to go to work.
Go out there and you know,
make the company proud.
- You know I will.
- Mm.
There ya go.
(hand smacks)
So, Counselor, to what do I
owe this unscheduled visit?
- Well, I got somethin' for ya.
- Okay.
- It's 37-5.
- Kiss my hairy Brooklyn ass.
- Yes.
(both laugh)
- I am not easily impressed,
but I gotta hand it to you,
I did not expect this.
I guess we're gonna have
to adjust our deal, yeah?
Start paying you for your time?
Still at the 50%
rate, of course.
At least until you owe
me fuckin' money again.
- No, I, Rollie...
This is what I owe you.
- Right.
- That means I can't
represent you anymore.
- Oh yeah. Why the fuck not?
- I'm tryin' to get
my reputation back,
and it's gonna take
everything I have.
- You're gonna hurt
my feelings, Boggs.
Here I thought you and
me had developed this,
I don't know,
special relationship.
Bottom line is, your signature
is all over our business,
so you ain't fuckin'
goin' anywhere.
- That...
Being with you as your
attorney for life,
that was never our deal.
- Deal?
- That wasn't part
of the deal.
- Fuck our deal!
And fuck your reputation!
You think I give a fuck? Huh?
Answer me, you weaselly
little motherfucker.
Yeah, here's the
fuckin' problem, Boggs.
You did too good a fuckin' job.
You're like the first real
lawyer I ever fuckin' had.
I mean, I think you
coulda been big time
if you hadn't fucked up your
life the way you fuckin' did.
And oh my fucking God,
if they gave out awards
for fuckin' up
their fuckin' life,
you would go
multi-fuckin' platinum.
But you work for me and
it is gonna stay that way.
Do you understand?
- Wasn't our deal.
- Do you understand?
- Yeah.
- Yeah, what?
- I understand.
- Good. Now get the
fuck outta here.
I got a business to run.
Don't even think about
touchin' that fuckin' money.
The fuck are you lookin' at?
(monitor beeping)
(somber music)
(baby coos)
(somber music continues)
(ice clinking)
- Mind if I join
you, Miss Tompkins?
- Are you a registered
sex offender?
- No.
- Do you have a real job?
- Yeah.
- We were never
engaged, were we?
- Oh, I'd probably
remember that.
- Well, can you
afford an extra drink?
- Yeah, I can in this place.
Yeah, make mine a bourbon.
- Thanks.
So, I'm at a bit of
a disadvantage here.
You know exactly who I am
and I don't have a
fuckin' clue who you are.
- (chuckles) Well,
my name's Paul Drake.
It's about your nephew.
- You're a fuckin' cop?
Here I was thinking it was
just because you liked me.
- Well, I do like
you and I'm no cop.
I work for the insurance
company represents the hospital.
- This is going from bad
to worse for you, Drake.
A moment ago you had
a pretty good shot
at getting lucky tonight.
- Mm.
Well, the night is still young.
I can make a comeback.
Give me half a chance.
- What do you want from me?
I hope you know I would
never say anything
that would
disadvantage my sister.
- I'm very sorry about your
sister and your nephew.
I want that boy found.
But if he isn't, your
sister and her husband,
they stand to make
quite a bit of money.
- No amount of
money would make up
for what she's been through.
- What about your
- What about him?
- [Drake] How well
do you know him?
- What is that supposed to mean?
I've known him
since I was a kid.
- Would you do anything
to protect him, too?
- Fuck you, Drake.
I don't need you picking
through my garbage,
and I definitely don't need you
causing my sister anymore pain.
She doesn't deserve it.
- That won't happen.
I won't say anything.
- Why would you do that?
- Okay, I was a Army
cop for a long time.
Well, let's just say
I've seen a lotta people
do a lotta stuff for a
lotta different reasons.
I'm certainly in no
position to judge.
I've watched your brother-in-law
on the news, givin' interviews,
I know who he works with.
I just don't trust him.
And I'm guessing
you don't either.
So, you think he had anything
to do with the kidnapping?
- Why don't you ask him?
- Oh, I plan on doing just that.
- Good luck.
- Mr. Drake.
Please. Come in.
(door thuds)
- Thank you.
Well, people like you
usually want nothing
to do with folks who
represent insurance companies.
At least not without a lawyer.
- I'm sure that's true.
Frankly, I was glad you called.
- Really? How come?
- I have no desire to drag
this out for a year or two.
I'm anxious to put it behind me
so we can move on
with our lives.
- Mm.
Even when there's still
an ongoing investigation
attempting to find your son?
- Look, Paul.
I'm sorry. May I call you Paul?
- Sure.
- You and I both know the
baby's never going to be found.
He's either living with some
illiterate dirt-poor family
in the desert, or some
incredibly wealthy family
halfway across the
world, or dead.
In any case, we're not
gonna see him again.
- Wow.
You are handling this
pretty damn well.
Yeah, you know, I don't
think I could be so composed
if I were in your spot.
- Just being a realist, seeing
the world for what it is.
This has been a tragic event.
Pretty much ripped
my family apart.
Now it's time for me to see
if I can put the
pieces back together.
- So I take it you
wanna come to some sort
of financial agreement
pretty quickly.
- Yeah.
In order to avoid legal action,
pretty quickly is exactly
what we should do.
(tense music)
Look, let's not play
games, you and me.
I know you've done
your homework.
I know you've spoken to
the neighbors who saw me
the night of the kidnapping,
the companies I work with.
I know you've examined my
relationship with Jacko Stern
and found nothing irregular.
I swear to you, I
had nothing to do
with what happened
to baby Robert.
So what do you say we stop
pissin' on that tree, huh?
- Funny, I don't remember
ever accusing you, Mr. Evans.
- Billy. Just Billy.
Let's just get the
meeting set up.
- Yeah, I can do that.
I'll let you know.
One more thing.
(objects thud)
You know what those are?
(Billy chuckles)
- Come on, Paul.
We just talked
about not insulting
each other's intelligence.
If those were planted
in the hospital,
someone had a pretty
damn good idea
of what was goin' on in there.
And if this was an inside job,
could be a more expensive
problem for your client.
- Funny, I don't remember
ever mentioning the hospital.
- You didn't have to.
(tense music)
Wendy, meet Paul Drake.
He works for the
insurance company that
covers the hospital.
- Hi.
- Nice to meet you.
- You, too.
- I'll be waiting to
hear from you, Paul.
- Yeah.
You got your hands
full. Big time.
(door thuds)
(birds chirping)
(tense music)
(switch clicks)
(electronic tone pings)
(tense music fades)
- [Jacko] Billy,
where you been, man?
- Sorry, man.
- Remember Rollie Barnes?
- Hey.
- Good to see you again.
I'm sorry under
these circumstances.
I'm very sorry for your loss.
- Thank you. I appreciate that.
- Yeah, of course, my man.
- [Jacko] And this is Rollie's
attorney, Ethan Boggs.
- Nice to meet you, Mr. Boggs.
- And you, Mr. Evans.
I, too, would like to
offer my condolences.
- It's a terrible tragedy.
- [Jacko] Ethan's been
doing some good work for us
and I want him to represent you
in the case with the insurance-
- Oh hey, thanks, Jacko,
but I'm actually meeting
with a lawyer from San Diego
a friend referred me to.
- No, no, no.
Ethan's part of our
team, all right?
You don't need some lawyer
who's gonna be more loyal
to the insurance company
than he is to us.
Right, Ethan?
- That's right, Mr. Stern.
- Then it's settled, all right?
Why don't you two go
spend some time together
and start prepping
for the meeting.
- [Billy] Are you fuckin' crazy?
You realize you could
get us both killed here?
- Do you think I had
a choice in this?
Why are you so surprised?
You remember how you met
me in the first place?
- Didn't I pay you enough
money to cut the cord
with these guys?
Wasn't that our deal?
- Evidently not!
Rollie had different plans.
- Isn't this just
fuckin' perfect?
- Actually, it
may not be so bad.
Jacko's not all wrong.
A new lawyer, a new firm,
they could start digging
in the wrong places.
At least between me and you,
we know there's no more lies.
I think.
We just gotta make sure
that we're on the same page,
not doing anything stupid.
You hearing me?
- Yeah. That sorta makes sense.
- [Ethan] Yes.
- In fact, (chuckles) this
is goddamn serendipitous.
- Sit up and wipe that
goddamn smile off your face.
Rollie's got a nose
like a bloodhound.
If he suspects, smells any
shit between the two of us,
he's gonna be halfway
up both our asses.
- All right.
- So let's go over strategy
for the meeting tomorrow,
what we're going for.
What time exactly
was the baby born?
To the minute.
(soft tense music)
- Del, I'm pretty sure
we're about to bear witness
to some very interesting shit.
(soft ominous music)
- Mr. Boggs.
Am I to assume
you'll be representing Mr.
Evans' interest on your own?
- You assume correctly.
For better or worse, I'm it.
Have a seat, Billy.
- Listen, before we begin, I'd
just like to say to Mr. Evans
that everyone in this
room is deeply saddened
by what you and your
wife had to go through.
- I think it's fair
to say that we'd all
like to avoid litigation.
No one wins and it takes
a tremendous emotional-
- Could we just
get to the offer?
What is the company
ready to offer?
- We are prepared to offer
your client $1.5 million
in exchange for his
agreement to release us
from any and all future claims.
- Well, unfortunately,
Mr. Evans and I had a
different number in mind.
- Go on.
- I'm gonna have to
refer to my notes here.
On July 14th, Mr. and
Mrs. Evans were parents
for the first time.
From 10 minutes before
9 a.m. until, well,
apparently sometime
around midnight,
they were able to enjoy
holding their newborn baby
in their arms, feeding
him, watching him sleep.
15 hours.
We want $4 million.
For every hour that baby
Robert was with them!
- That's $60 million.
- Okay, you got it. 60 million.
- Okay, you're insane.
All right, we'll hire
the best litigators.
I mean, that's-
- Walter, please.
Mr. Boggs, we realize what
an emotionally charged issue
we're dealing with here.
- I doubt that.
- But let's be fair.
- Fair?
You've gotta be kidding.
After all we've been through!
I'm sorry.
- Let me be very,
very clear, okay?
I have police reports,
testimony from eyewitnesses,
I got lab reports all
describing in great detail
the fact that the level of
your poorly run hospital,
inept, unsecure, and
negligent to a degree
that's almost
You failed to protect
a newborn baby!
And as a result of that,
destroyed two,
probably three, lives.
You wanna go to trial? (scoffs)
Well, let's go to trial.
I will parade Mr. and Mrs.
Evans on every news site
and social media platform
from here to Beijing.
I'm gonna turn this case
into an international
fucking scandal
and then shove it
up your asshole!
Gimme weeks, gimme
weeks of bad publicity
every day in that courtroom.
Give it to me.
And I'll own your
fuckin' company!
(tense music)
$60 million, gentlemen.
Not a penny less.
And it all goes away.
Monday at noon. Billy.
- That was unbelievable.
You were amazing.
Those fuckin' guys
never saw it comin'.
You think they'll pay?
- I know they will.
- (grunts) This is exactly
what I'm talkin' about.
$60 million.
- 50.
- What?
Upstairs you just said-
- You're gonna pay me 10.
- (scoffs) 10?
Why the fuck would I do that?
- Because if you don't, I'm
gonna run straight to Jacko
and tell him everything.
- You're crazy. It'll be
your word against mine.
- You're right. But
here's your problem.
I'm trapped.
If he believes you and kills me,
no one'll give a
shit, including me.
But if he believes me,
and Jacko's one
smart son of a bitch,
then you lose everything.
(ominous music)
Now come on, let's
get outta here.
- Fuck me.
(crickets chirping)
- The other day I woke
up from our nap time.
I dreamt that we'd
given Joseph back
to his biological parents
and I became violently ill
and I was vomiting and
I couldn't breathe.
And I thought, I imagined
that I'd die without him.
I've never known the type of
love that I feel for that boy.
My heart rises and falls
with his every breath.
And then I hold him
and I smell him,
and I just wanna cry.
(gentle music)
When I think about the news
reports and what they said,
that she had a
nervous breakdown.
(Jacob sighs)
What kind of father would do
what that man did to
his son, to his wife?
I grieve for her, I do,
but we will not put
our son in their hands.
So we have to go now, Jacob.
We can't wait. Do
you understand me?
(gentle music continues)
(soft ominous music)
(phone buttons beeping)
- Yeah, gimme the news desk.
(tense music)
(visitor knocking)
(mellow music)
- Hi.
- Hi.
- You gonna ask me in?
- [Drake] Yeah, I don't know.
Would you ask you
in if you were me?
(mellow music continues)
All eyes turn to see her
Ladies wanna be her
- Wow.
Not a whole lot for
an ex-military officer
turned fancy-ass
insurance investigator.
- I don't need a whole lot.
You want a drink?
- This early in the
afternoon? Absolutely.
(mellow music continues)
(singer vocalizing)
- Hmm.
- Hmm.
Good choice.
- Thank you.
- So is it true?
- Is what true?
- Come on, Drake.
The 60 million.
Is that what Billy got?
- I think it's fair for you
to assume that it's true.
- Fuckin' asshole.
That's what he always wanted.
He did this, didn't he?
- At this point,
it's just my opinion.
Can't prove anything
without finding the baby.
Do you remember if
you guys brought
a black duffel bag
into the hospital?
- Why?
- Because a nurse
remembered a black bag
just before the
baby disappeared.
But it wasn't there after.
The time has come
The time is right
- Maybe I can help?
(bright music)
Sparklin' in the dark
You're in trouble
for certain tonight
With her you can't fight
It's those diamond eyes
Every time she's with you
And you're looking into
Those beautiful
sparklin' diamond eyes
(gentle music)
- [Wendy] You really
are a tough guy.
(Drake chuckles)
I like it.
- Yeah, if I was
such a tough guy,
I might have a few less scars.
- Good point.
(both chuckle)
How do you know about Billy?
- I don't know.
You know, sometimes you
just look in a person's eyes
and you get a feeling.
- Yeah. (chuckles)
- Yeah, his are like curtains.
Hides everything.
- He may honestly care about her
in some sick and twisted way,
but really he just
thinks about himself.
Thinks no rules apply to him
and that he can get
away with anything.
- It's a little psychotic.
- Oh, a little. (chuckles)
No, he's completely nuts.
(Drake chuckles)
And he can be dangerous.
- Well, so can I.
(Drake chuckles)
You like dangerous?
- I like it now.
Show me how
dangerous you can be.
(sultry music)
(phone ringing)
- Yeah?
- Mr. Evans?
- Who's this?
- [Jacob] My name
is Jacob Glass.
I'm the man who's raising
your child as my son.
- I see. What can I
do for you, Mr. Glass?
Or should I say, how much
is this gonna cost me?
- Just enough to get by,
provide for my boy
and this family,
someday when I'm gone.
$1 million.
(Billy scoffs)
Probably more
than what I need, but
from the sound of it,
it's a lot less
than what you got.
- How would you like to do this?
- [Jacob] You know the big
parking lot at Camp Inspire,
the bridge?
- As a matter of fact, I do.
- Midnight tonight.
(tense music)
(Billy chuckles)
You should just pack
what the three of us
will need for a couple of days,
and then we'll drive
south across the border
and we'll start a new life,
Sarah, you, Joseph, and me.
- Why won't you tell
me where you're going?
I'm afraid, Jakey.
(soft tense music)
(engine whirring)
We should just go now
and not take any chances.
- No, no, no.
There's nothing to be
scared about, okay?
This is just, it's just
somethin' I gotta do.
(tense music)
Just be ready. Okay?
(tense music continues)
(door thuds)
- How do I know this won't
become a habit, Mr. Glass?
- I don't understand
what you did.
And I'm not sorry
that you did it
because now I've got a
chance to make the family
that my wife and me
have always wanted.
This ain't about
more money, man.
It just ain't.
(tense music)
(bag thuds)
(tense music continues)
That's what a
million looks like.
Little bit of a letdown,
you wanna know the truth.
(Billy scoffs)
- I don't expect to ever
hear from you again.
- You ain't gotta
worry about that.
We're done, Mr. Evans. Done.
(suspenseful music)
(object thuds)
(dramatic music)
(Jacob grunting)
- I'm sorry. I was gonna
let you go, really,
but I just couldn't.
It's a million dollars
for shit's sake.
(dramatic music)
(object thuds)
(Jacob thuds)
(Billy panting)
(metal clangs)
(soft ominous music)
(Jacob thuds)
(suspenseful music)
(suspenseful music continues)
(soft tense music)
(soft tense music continues)
(Sarah crying)
(Wendy sighs)
- So how can you be so sure
that it had to do with the baby?
- This wasn't the type of guy
that Billy normally
does business with.
But the payoff, it
wasn't about business.
It was personal.
No, it was definitely
about your nephew.
- So why are you telling
me and not the police?
- Well, if I turn him in,
your sister loses out
on all that money.
- But Drake (chuckles),
you'd be a hero.
- Oh. (chuckles)
- Retrieving all that
fortune for your big company.
They'd write epic
poems about you.
- I don't give a shit
about those assholes.
They already got
too much already.
Plus they look down on people.
You know, where I come from?
(chuckles) I think
I get kind of a rise
thinkin' about them
handing over all that cash
to your sister and you.
The only thing is,
what are we gonna do
about your brother-in-law?
(Wendy sighs)
(gentle music)
- I think I have
an idea about that.
- Yeah. Thought you might.
- Kansas City plus,
given seven, 500.
- Given seven, 500.
- Yeah, that's right, and...
- 500, seven.
- It's about fuckin'
time you got here, Boggs.
We got a shitload of work to do.
Where the fuck have you been?
- I've been making
preparations. To leave.
- Leave? Leave where?
What the fuck are
you talkin' about?
- I'm out, Rollie.
I done my time.
I've done everything
you asked me to do.
It's time for me to move on.
- Can you believe this
fuckin' guy? (chuckles)
We already had this
conversation, Ethan.
- You gotta let me go, Rollie.
- There is no out.
There is dead, but
there is no out.
- I'm prepared to
further compensate you.
No strings attached.
- What do you
propose, Counselor?
- It's 200,000 large.
(bag thuds)
You gotta let me go, Rollie.
- Wow.
That is some major coin,
and it's more than enough
to buy yourself a free pass
to the promised land.
Except for one fuckin' thing.
- What's that?
- Guys like me are just
naturally curious about shit.
- It's $200,000.
- Like how does a weak fuck
like you who still drinks
and gambles too much
come by all that cash?
Unless it has something
to do with Jacko's friend.
Or should I say your friend?
Yeah, your expression
tells me everything.
Yeah, the former adoption lawyer
and the sick fuck who
was obviously involved
in peddling his own kid.
I mean, who the fuck
couldn't see that shit?
What a fuckin' scumbag.
- That's a really
interesting theory, Rollie.
But you have to prove it.
(both laughing)
- Who the fuck needs proof?
I'm not talkin' about
turning you into the cops.
I'm talkin' about
putting a bullet
in the back of your
head, ya fuckin' moron.
So as much as I would
like to keep your money,
why don't you hold onto
it for the time being-
- Rollie.
- And continue to do as
you are fuckin' told.
- Rollie, you should let me go.
- In the meantime, I think
Del should take you out back
for a much-needed
attitude adjustment.
- I'm not gonna let
him hurt me again.
- But I have enjoyed watching
our esteemed colleague
try to grow a pair of testicles.
(both laugh)
(dramatic music)
- I've always had balls.
I just haven't seen
'em in a while.
(gun cocks and fires)
(ominous music)
(gun fires)
(high-pitched tone ringing)
(somber music)
- Here you go, honey.
- Thanks.
- You know, I was thinking,
maybe we should go
away for a while.
Put some distance between
this place and us.
You remember when we used to
talk about living in France?
- I remember, yeah.
- I think we should do it.
Sell this place. Start
a whole new life.
I think it'll be good for you.
- I don't know, babe, it's...
(tense music)
(tense music continues)
- Like I said in high school,
we're swans, you and me.
We're mated for life.
(sighs) Okay. I have
to go out for a while.
Talk about it more
when I get back, okay?
- Okay.
(suspenseful music)
- Oh, it's the richest
man in the canyon.
- Not even close, Vic.
- From where I'm sittin'.
- Yeah, so how's Barbara?
- Day to day, but
better. Thanks.
- Yeah, that's nice.
- How are you, buddy?
You look good. Real good.
Hey, sit down. Let's talk.
- Uh-oh. Sounds serious.
All right, let's talk.
- When we started doing
business together,
what was the one rule I told
you could never be broken?
- I don't know, what is
this a quiz? (chuckles)
- No. This is serious.
What did I say?
- I don't remember.
Come on, man. (grunts)
Jacko, what the
hell are you doin'?
- That there would
be no surprises,
that I wouldn't hear
shit from anyone but you,
and that whatever you
do, we do together.
You remember that?
- Yeah. Yeah!
Yeah, so what's the
problem? (cries out)
- I want you to tell me, Billy.
I don't wanna say it.
This is how this works.
You tell me.
- There's nothin' to tell.
I swear there's no surprise.
(ominous music)
(Billy screaming)
No, no, no!
- Gimme that fuckin' arm.
(Billy crying out)
(bone snaps)
(Billy crying)
(Billy crying)
(ominous music)
- Wendy?
- Look at me. Look at me.
Now tell me about the baby.
- No. Jacko, please.
Don't. No, don't, don't.
You're my brothers,
all of you. Please.
- Just tell me,
Billy. Just tell me.
- It was Boggs.
He handled the whole
thing. It was his idea.
- Oh, okay. It was Boggs.
It was his idea.
Hey, shh, shh, shh, shh.
(Billy crying)
It's okay. It's almost over.
Just tell me one thing, okay.
(Billy crying)
Who took the baby
outta Barbara's room?
(tense music)
Come on. Just tell me.
- [Billy] No. (whimpers) No.
(tense music continues)
- It's okay.
Come on, come on. Shh.
Tell me. Just tell me.
Who took the baby?
Hmm? Hmm?
(tense music continues)
- I did.
- I know.
- I did.
- I know you did.
(Billy grunting)
- [Billy] Oh God. (crying)
- This is the closest to
God you're ever gonna get.
- Oh God. (groans)
(knife squelches)
I see my kingdom
- Just like brothers.
(knife squelches)
And before he died
- Die, motherfucker.
He said listen to me, child
Don't you do
what I have done
(soft ominous music)
(tires crunching)
(doors thudding)
(gentle music)
- We call him Joseph and
he's a fine, fine boy.
And he's a sweet baby
and he is a good eater.
And he almost sleeps
through the night.
And when you hold him tight,
he'll make your heart ache
with more love than you've
ever felt in your life.
(somber music)
(Barbara gasps)
(Barbara sniffling)
- We'll keep his name.
I want you to be a
part of Joseph's life.
- I'd like that.
(gentle music)
- [Actor] Awesome.
- Oh wait, I've seen this movie.
- It's amazing how she convinced
everyone she was innocent
and not the monster
behind the killings.
(ominous music)
- [Actress] Zach! Zach!
You need to go. (screams)
(upbeat music)
(Ethan speaking Spanish)
(companion speaking Spanish)
- Gracias.
- Hi, baby.
- Hi, Kara.
Can you believe
there was once a time
where I could only dream
of being with a woman
as beautiful as you?
How long have we
known each other?
One month? Two months?
- Five days.
- Five days. (chuckles)
You know, I was thinkin', why
don't we skip the whole part
about, you know,
meeting your parents.
Just jump right to
poppin' out kids.
- Oh, you got big plans.
- Yeah. (chuckles)
- You make me laugh. (chuckles)
It's one of the things
I like about you.
Can I refill your glass?
- Thank you. Oh.
(upbeat music continues)
- [Kara] Don't miss me.
- Terribly.
You know where to find me.
(upbeat music continues)
That was quick,
sweetie. Thank you.
- I see you're still
drinkin' scotch, Counselor.
It took me a long
fuckin' time to find you.
(gun fires)
(bluesy electric guitar music)
There is a house
In New Orleans
New Orleans
And they call it,
call it the Rising Sun
Rising Sun
And it's been, been the ruin
Of many a poor girl
And God, yes I know I am one
My father was a gambler
A sinner till kingdom come
And before he died, he
said, "Listen to me, child"
Don't you do
what I have done
(bluesy electric guitar music)
So, Mama, tell your
babies not to do
Do what I have done
Go down that road, way
down to New Orleans
The House of the Rising Sun
Rising Sun
(upbeat music)
Every time people,
they always change
The way that they
work gets rearranged
They never see the way
I thought them to be
It's always me that
gets in the way
Become the bad guy
Let's change your ways
Friendships out the door
Maybe it's best I
want them no more
'Cause I'm so gone
So far
Every time people, they
always seem to change
Who I think they are
And I wash my
hands completely
So gone
So far
Every time people, they
always seem to change
Who I think they are
And I wash my
hands completely
Now I'll tell the story
Here, it's not sad
But I guess bein'
real has become a fad
Selfish me, I
think about myself
But I only care
So I waste time
with somebody else
The promises broken for
the last time as well
But my heart can only
take so much more
