Nowhere to Run (1993) Movie Script

Are you okay? Sure?
Yeah, I'm okay.
Yeah, go check the son of
a bitch out in the car.
Go on.
Buddy. Are you okay?
Fine. But thanks for asking.
Get your goddamn hands off me.
Open the door.
Don't go for the shotgun.
Just open the door.
My leg!
It's broken.
Come here.
Ow! Ow! Ow!
Move. You know the routine,
old man. Hands behind your back.
Arms behind your back and walk.
My leg.
Move aside.
My arm.
What's broken,
your arm or your leg?
Your face.
Come on. Let's go.
Take it easy. Take it easy.
Okay. Let them all go.
Bring his fat ass back here.
Do it!
Come on.
Calm down. Calm down. Calm down.
- Come on, get up!
- Come on.
Come on. Get up here.
Come here, goddamn it.
- Come on. Come on, move it!
- Get me out of here!
- Get out!
- Move it!
Shit! Shit!
Steal the car, go to hell.
Hey, buddy.
Whoo! Let's go.
Come on.
Whoo! I told you I'd get you out.
I did it.
Oh, God. Oh, God.
It should have been me in jail.
Not you. It should have been me.
Do you forgive me?
I forgive you, Billy.
I'm glad, man.
I couldn't...
I couldn't have that hanging
over me for the rest of my life.
You think that ought
to hold you?
And some whisky.
I wouldn't sell meat
without whisky.
What are you doing up this way?
In a suit?
Heh. What kind of hunting?
Pink flamingos.
State police have
rounded up 12 of the 18 prisoners
in yesterday's prison bus escape.
Authorities said that the six
prisoners still unaccounted for
are to be considered
possibly armed and dangerous.
The bus...
You ever see any pink flamingos?
No, sir.
Never have,
never will.
You sure?
Yes, sir.
How much?
- Do we have to go now?
- Yes.
Thanks for leaving me this mess.
You're welcome.
And you didn't make your beds.
Mommy, can we get another dog?
We'll see, honey.
You too, pal.
Good night, Morn.
Good night.
Sleep well.
Who named God "God"?
God did.
God named God "God"?
Why didn't he name
himself Torn or Charlie?
Can I put some salt on this, Morn?
It's okay.
It's okay. It's all right.
That's the dynamite again, huh?
Okay, honey. It's okay.
Just eat your breakfast.
Where's the salt, Mom?
It doesn't need any salt, Mookie.
Come on. Just a little.
Bree, did you move the salt shaker?
I don't believe this.
E.T. took it. He did.
He was here. I heard him.
Last night.
E.T.'s make-believe, honey.
He is not. He was here, Mom.
Mookie, you've got to stop
making things up.
I'm not.
You are. Please stop it!
"World's greatest dad."
Hey, Sam, this is me, Billy. I wish I
can be there to split all that money.
But I guess if you're listening to this,
then it's all yours now, right? Heh.
Well, you deserve it, man. Being in
prison all that time because of me.
Hey, I wonder which way
I'm headed.
Either way, up or down, I guess I got a fifty-fifty
chance of meeting Elvis, huh? Heh, heh.
How do you like that suit
I picked out for you?
Anyhow, lay low and don't go getting
into things the way you sometimes do.
Oh, and, Sam,
I'm glad I knew you.
Come in.
Oh, come in, Lonnie.
Come in, come in.
I want you to meet
Mr. Dunston.
Lonnie Poole.
He'll be taking care of certain
aspects of security and surveying.
Hey, well, don't mind me.
I already briefed Mr. Dunston
on the situation here.
So how are things
with Mrs. Anderson?
She's hardheaded
but we're gonna work it out.
We're gonna need her parcel
and the Lewis place next to her.
Well, it's 120 acres in the middle
of the development.
I know that, Mr. Hale.
We gotta go forward without them.
What's your security training, Mr.
Cleveland Police Department.
Why did you leave?
Pick a card.
Heh, heh, heh.
Take it. Take it.
Oh, go on. Pick a card.
You got it?
All right,
put it back in the deck.
Let me ask you a question, Lonnie.
This Anderson woman,
you fucking her?
None of your goddamn business.
Who is this guy?
Didn't mean anything by it.
I don't have to take this shit.
I didn't mean anything
by it, man. I'm sorry.
Was that your card?
I must be slipping.
Lonnie, why don't you go back
to work.
Hey, good to meet you, Lonnie.
Sorry about that.
You know, I'm not too optimistic
about our young friend's success.
Some of these landowners
can be hard nuts to crack.
Then we use a hammer.
That was nice.
It was.
He come to see you again?
I don't wanna talk
about this, Lonnie.
You know they're blasting
over at the Braemer's again.
Turn the whole thing into a lake.
I know. My whole house shakes.
So what?
Well, these people,
when they want something,
they can play rough.
What are you saying?
I worry about you.
I live here.
They don't scare me.
You're something, you know that?
I'll see you.
I'm not gonna give up my home.
E.T., is that you?
How come you didn't throw
the ball back?
Did you come down
from outer space?
How come you've got a gun?
Are you a bad guy?
You like boobs?
I think they're gross.
I think they're totally gross.
My name is Mike.
But everybody calls me Mookie.
What's your name?
Well, see you tomorrow, Sam, okay?
I may not be here tomorrow.
Don't you know how to start a fire?
You have to let the air get in
or it's not going to burn.
Going to cook something?
A steak.
Let me have it. I'll cook it for you.
Oh, God. Do you
have to ruin everything?
I can be here.
You're not the boss of me.
This is my sister, Bree.
This is Sam.
I'm going to cook him a steak.
Me and my dad, when we go
camping, he let me be the cook.
You don't remember that.
Yes, I do.
You were too little.
Morn said.
I remember.
Where's your dad now?
He had a "nurdism."
An aneurysm. Don't you
even know anything?
He's in the cemetery.
He's a skeleton.
He is not.
Mookie? Bree?
Well, we've gotta go.
Bye, Sam.
Don't tell anyone you saw me here,
Why not?
Because he doesn't
want us to, all right?
Come on.
I'm gonna tell Mom.
You better not,
I'll tell Morn you smoke.
I do not.
You do now.
what happened to him?
No! No!
No! No!
- Get away!
- Mommy.
Morn. Mom, who are these guys?
Stay down. Stay down.
Get out of the truck.
You're scaring my children!
Get out of the truck.
Leave them alone.
Who the hell are you?
I'm the parking attendant.
And you're bothering my customers.
Come on.
Stay there.
Who are you?
He's my friend. His name is Sam.
Are you just gonna let him
stand there?
What are you hunting?
Deer, mostly.
Deer is out of season.
Yeah, and jack rabbit.
We've got lots of rabbits, Morn.
I don't allow hunting
on my property.
I'm mostly camping.
I don't allow camping either.
Who were those men?
Come on. Come on, kids, up to bed.
Can we stay up for a little while?
No. I mean it. Let's go.
We didn't say good night to Sam.
Say good night and let's go.
I'll be right up.
Where are you from?
What do you do there?
What difference does it make?
It's an innocent question.
I'm a lawyer.
Where did you learn to fight like that?
Law school.
Who were those guys?
Poachers, I suspect.
Thank you for the coffee.
Good night, ma'am.
You don't have to sleep in the woods.
Sleep in my barn for a night or two.
No, thanks.
You can hunt here all you want.
I thought you didn't allow hunting.
Maybe I changed my mind.
You're afraid those guys
will be back?
Forget it.
Wait. How much?
How much for the barn?
You don't have to pay me.
Are you sure?
Out of the way. Out of the way.
Bree, I've told you about
running in front of the truck.
You don't go in front of the truck
like that. Look, I have told you.
Heh, heh.
It's not funny. I'll be right back.
Did not.
Hi. I thought you might
wanna wear these.
Who the hell are you?
I'm a friend of Clydie's.
Yeah. What's your name, friend?
Got a wallet in those pants? An ID?
In here.
I'm naked.
It doesn't bother me at all.
Who is this guy?
What are you doing?
Who is he?
He's my cousin from Quebec.
He told me he was your friend.
My third cousin on my mother's side.
What's wrong with you?
Lonnie, this is ridiculous.
Put the gun down.
Can I talk to you a second?
Do you want some more?
Yeah. Thanks.
Can you pass the salt?
The old bike in the barn,
I would like to buy it.
How much will you pay for it?
I don't know, 200?
Take it or leave it.
I'll take it.
Are you gonna go away on it?
I'll have to fix it first.
It's too broken to be fixed.
He's got a big penis.
He does.
He was in the pond, washing.
He's got an average penis.
How do you know?
Because I saw it.
I don't wanna hear anymore
about penises.
Are you gonna sleep in her bed?
I said that's enough.
No one's gonna sleep in my bed
except me.
Did you change your mind?
You want to help me?
It's a good offer. A better offer than
you'd get if you sold to anyone else.
Well, I don't wanna sell it
to anyone else.
I don't wanna sell it.
Mrs. Anderson,
I know your financial situation.
Forgive me
if this is a trifle indelicate.
You might not be able
to make your payments.
And if you can't make your payments,
the bank will be forced to foreclose.
That's because you bought
into the bank.
The bank never used to foreclose
until you came.
Nevertheless, you must understand...
It will take a month
to get the order to foreclose.
She'd get a lawyer.
He would file a writ.
That would delay
a couple of months.
You would have to go to trial.
If you don't want to sell it,
don't sell it.
Forgive me.
You are who, exactly?
My cousin Sam.
Oh, hello. Franklin Hale.
I'm delighted to meet you.
Thank you for your time,
Mrs. Anderson.
Gentlemen, shall we?
Astonishing, isn't it?
One little woman in the middle of
a wheat field. And what is she doing?
She's fucking us up.
My proposed development
is one of the largest of its kind
in the West
And represents a total investment in
your community of nearly $1 billion.
Now, what we're talking about here
is natural beauty.
I must tell you,
I mean, this valley of yours,
it's one of the most extraordinarily
beautiful places I've ever seen.
I mean, it's quite remarkable.
And I do want to assure you,
under no circumstances
would my company or myself
ever dream
of desecrating such beauty.
But you have in this town a lot of land
which can be used more efficiently.
And in a way
that everyone would benefit.
I wanna guarantee everyone...
You should be ashamed of yourself,
selling your heritage
to this pitchman.
Tom, you're out of line.
Build your damn golf course
around me. I'm not selling my land.
Let him speak. He
has the right to speak.
Please, please, let him speak.
My dear sir, at first glance,
there's bound to be opposition
to a plan like this.
But your council people,
who you have elected,
they understand the wisdom
of our ideas.
They have endorsed them
rather enthusiastically.
It don't matter. I know the tactics
your people are using.
That's not gonna work.
Nobody's gonna tell me
what to do with my land.
It's okay, Tom.
They can't make us sell.
You sure?
Are you sure about that, Clydie?
Let's go. Let's get out of here.
Sam! Sam! Something's wrong.
Come on, wake up.
Come on. Come on.
It's our neighbor's barn, Sam.
Mookie, wake up your mother.
Tell her to call the fire department.
Go. Go!
Are you okay?
My husband's in there. Help him.
Stay back. Stay!
Help him. Please help him.
Oh, please.
Come on. Come on. Hiyah! Hiyah!
Let me help.
Come on.
Pull him out.
Push or pull. Hiyah!
Get out! Come on!
Get that one.
Come on. Come on. Come on.
Hiyah! Hiyah!
Go, go!
Let's go!
Hiyah! Hiyah!
Oh, my God.
Oh, Tom.
Are you okay, honey?
Are you okay?
Are you all right?
The gas tanks. They're gonna go!
Move back. Get back.
Oh, my God.
Clydie, the tanks are gonna blow.
Get back!
Get back!
Come on, we'll be all right.
I never saw anything like it.
Did you get burned?
No. I was lucky.
Sam, are you gonna go home now?
Are you going to stay?
For a while.
You're gonna go home sometime,
aren't you?
I really don't remember my dad,
not like I say I do.
It's okay.
You did good, Mookie,
discovering the fire.
I wasn't scared.
I know.
Good night.
Good night.
I've been out here on my own
ever since my husband died.
I always thought I could handle
whatever came up.
I don't know why I'm telling you this.
I don't even know you.
ls that your real name?
Sometimes you just get tired.
I'll be okay tomorrow.
Things will be better in the morning.
What is this stuff for?
For the brakes.
Without it, the bike won't start.
- What about this?
- That's gasket sealant.
Hey, what kind of car
you working on?
It's not for a car. A motorcycle.
It's a moto... A what?
You're not from around here,
are you?
Neither are you.
That's right. Neither am I.
Hey, you're that Canadian guy,
Pulled old Tom Lewis
out of his burning barn.
You're the guy, right?
You're him.
He also saved all the horses too.
He did? Wow.
That must have really been
So, what kind?
What kind of what?
What are we talking about?
What kind of motorcycle
are you working on?
A Triumph.
They don't make them
like that anymore. Do they?
No, they don't.
No, they don't.
Let's go.
Yeah, see you.
Hey, good luck with
the motorcycle.
How long does it take to learn
how to drive one of these?
I can show you right now.
I don't wanna know. As long
as you know what you're doing.
Don't get caught.
You understand?
I thought the local law
was taken care of.
Yeah, he's been paid,
but I'm not sure he's bought.
It's not for you to worry about.
Who's worried?
That your card?
Yeah. How did you do that?
Mommy, is that your wedding?
Come on in. Want some coffee?
Thank you.
Sam, that's my dad.
Come on, look at him.
Mommy, why is Daddy
carrying you like that?
Because that's what
the groom does.
He carries his wife off, so they
can start their new life together.
- That's me.
- So little.
I bet he was a good kisser.
Yes, he was.
It's very beautiful here.
It's the Valley of the Moon.
That's what we called it.
Can you smell the violets?
There's no prettier smell on earth
than the smell of violets.
You're not used to all this.
You're not married, are you?
Used to be.
A long time ago.
You miss your husband, don't you?
There are days
when I miss him very much.
Would you like to sleep
in my room tonight?
You're a very special woman.
I'll see you tomorrow.
You're tuned to Night
Sounds where it's 1:30 in the morning
and a very pleasant 65 degrees.
It's late, Lonnie.
No later than it usually is.
Come here.
What's the matter?
I just don't feel like it.
Kids up?
What's the matter?
You still upset about the Lewis' barn?
It has nothing to do with the barn.
Then what?
I don't know.
Well, when you figure it out,
you let me know.
Guess she won't be growing
much here now.
Ha! Ha!
Son of a... Come here!
Strike three.
You're out.
I don't know how much you know
about business, Mr. Dunston.
These things can be
a little complicated.
Let me clarify the situation.
What it comes down to is this:
If I don't have Mrs. Anderson's land
by this week, I lose my permits.
If I lose permits, I lose this deal.
If I lose this, I'm out of business.
Now, if you
and your little pissant army
can't persuade one woman
to sell me her land,
I may have to find someone
who can.
So, Lonnie Poole,
what did you find out about him?
I know he's not her cousin.
Good, Lonnie.
Look, I don't care who he isn't.
This asshole is really
beginning to bother me.
Now I have to go out there,
present him with some options
to sticking around here.
I take it as a favor if you give me first
crack at making that presentation.
Clydie is not here.
I know that.
I never did see
that identification.
I thought we'd been through this.
Stop right there.
Put your hands up against
the barn door. Move!
Spread them.
Are you arresting me?
What for?
I haven't decided yet.
Why don't you just leave her alone?
Ugh! Ugh! Ugh!
You're fucking it all up.
For everybody's sake,
just get out of here.
If you cared for her,
you would not be doing this.
What happened?
Does this have anything to do
with what happened
in the pasture last night?
Goddamn it.
Who did this to you?
It was personal.
Why do you do that?
Why don't you talk to me?
I don't know who you are,
why you're here.
Do you want me to go?
I don't know, I...
I don't know what I want.
I don't know what I'm doing.
Hi, Mom.
Hi, honey.
Where's your sister?
I don't know, playing somewhere?
Where's Sam?
He's still asleep.
Uh-uh. He's not in the barn.
He stayed in my room.
All night?
All right. Can I go see him?
Honey, he's really tired.
Let him sleep for a few more hours.
A few more hours?
What did you do to him?
Does this little girl
belong to you?
- Bree, what were you doing?
- I was playing.
He wanted to play with me.
He can pull a magic card
out from my ear.
He can? Come here.
Mrs. Anderson, you shouldn't let
the child run around.
Do I know you?
Go inside.
Well, I'm surprised to see
that you're still here.
No, you're not.
Yes, I am.
If I see you near her or the children,
I'll kill you.
Look, you seem like a smart fella.
The woman isn't worth it.
And I tell you,
when push comes to shove,
you're not gonna be dealing with
some tin badge, local sheriff guy.
You're gonna be dealing with me.
I look forward to it.
Me too.
Yeah, for now.
FBI just left my office.
What do you want?
I know who you are.
I'm gonna do everybody a favor.
Leave, just go somewhere else.
Do it right now or I'm not gonna
be able to stop what'll happen.
What about Clydie?
What about this place?
You're making it much worse for her
than it was ever supposed to be.
If you care for her, you'll go.
I was a thief.
I don't care.
There was a bank.
And the guard got shot.
So you're a murderer.
A boy, Billy.
I took him with me
on a couple of jobs.
The guard was going to shoot me.
Billy shot him first.
But I was taken.
You had no right.
Damn you, you had no right
to come into our lives.
You have to go.
You're going to lose this place.
No, I am not.
I can take care of myself.
I was doing just fine
before you came here.
I have been alone a long time.
So have I.
Mookie, you're it.
I said you're it.
Clydie, I thought it might be
easier talking to you on tape,
but now I'm not so sure.
Yeah, this is excellent, Lonnie.
This is excellent.
Why'd you let him go?
You'd be famous now
if you'd collared him.
Now doesn't seem the time
to have this place crawling
with state cops and FBI, does it?
You're quite right, Lonnie,
quite right.
Now, that's what I like about you,
Lonnie, you're always thinking.
Well, it shouldn't be too difficult to
break Mrs. Anderson's resistance now. Hm?
I'm gonna work on that right away.
Thank you, Lonnie.
I don't care if our local sheriff
says he's left town.
I still think he's dangerous.
Me too.
I think we should take
personal charge of the situation.
Today, a little cooler
tonight, dropping down to the 50s.
But tomorrow, another sunny day,
so make your plans.
It's gonna be a beautiful day
out there.
- Hey, Pete.
- Hey.
- What's new with you?
- Nothing.
Excuse me. That bike parked
out front belong to you?
Did you restore it yourself?
It needed a little work.
It was nothing.
Where are you from?
Drive her here all the way
from Canada?
You must be a good mechanic.
Gonna have anything to eat?
What do you got?
Well, today's special
is meat loaf. It's not bad.
Or you can have
the rest of that guy's steak.
I thought it might be easier
talking to you on tape,
but now I'm not so sure.
I can never change what I did,
no matter how much I regret it.
Mookie's going to hear lots
of things about me.
Most of them won 't be true.
Please say goodbye to him for me.
Tell him I never meant for anyone
to get hurt, especially him.
Go, go!
Gather around!
Over there, move! Hiyah!
- Hiyah!
- Hiyah!
Sixty-four to base.
Son of a bitch.
Get a chopper here now.
I want him trapped.
Mom, what are you doing?
Just locking up.
We never lock up.
Well, we're gonna start.
Mommy, are you
scared of something?
Honey, I'm just being cautious.
That's different from being scared.
My turn.
One, two, three,
four, five, six, seven.
Kentucky Avenue.
Who has that?
Oh, a six.
Where's...? Where is it?
Where am I?
Ah! Run! Run!
Go get the kids. Get the kids.
What do you want?
My God!
John, try using the stairs.
- Bree, upstairs.
- Open the door, kid.
Open the goddamn door!
I'll climb out the window,
look for help.
You can't do that. You'll fall.
I've done it before.
I'm gonna tell Mom.
The other little
shit went out the window.
Please don't hurt my children.
What's the matter?
Lonnie! Ah!
Now, go find the other kid.
I'm over here, you big, fat jerk.
Come on out, kid.
Come on, son. I wouldn't hurt you.
Stay here.
Stupid shit.
I'm gonna kill
that little son of a bitch.
All right, no more threats.
No more bullshit.
You know what we're here for.
I'm not gonna hurt her.
What are you doing...?
Mommy. Mommy.
You stay in there and no noise.
I'm sick of this town. I'm sick of you.
I wanna go home.
Now, sign the fucking contract.
Here's a pen. Sign the contract.
I'm sorry it had to come to this.
Right here.
Very good.
Go to hell.
Get out now.
Go. This is my house.
No. We can't leave before the fire.
I'm afraid I can't take the risk.
Al, if you will.
Ah! No!
Watch her. Watch her.
Where is he?
Get up.
Sam. Sam.
Leave him alone. No.
You okay?
Just stay behind me.
Au revoir, fucker.
- Clydie.
- Sam.
Don't come any closer.
Let her go.
Don't think of it.
Let her go!
Stay back. Stay back.
Throw the gun down.
Throw the gun down now.
Throw the gun down.
Do it.
Put your hands above your head.
I'm Franklin Hale. I own this valley.
Turn around and face the house.
There's an escaped convict in there.
Turn and face the house. Do it!
Go. You can still get away.
Sam Gillen!
The house is surrounded. Come out
with your hands above your head.
Why do they want you?
You didn't do anything wrong.
A long time ago, I did some things
I was not supposed to do.
Are they gonna take you to jail?
I don't want you to go.
I've got to go.
I don't want you to.
Good bye, Mookie.
Good bye, Mookie.
Goodbye, Bree.
Bye, Sam.
Are you coming back?
I'll find a way.
Somehow I'll find a way
to come back to you.
No matter how long it takes.
We'll be here.
I know.
I love you.
I love you too.
You saved a lot of lives here.
That ought to count
for something.
It's okay.
Goodbye, my friend.
Goodbye, Sam.
You bastard.
Do you know who I am?
I know what you are.
