Pig (2021) Movie Script

There you go.
Have a truffle, girl.
Good find, girl.
Oh, boy.
Excuse me.
No, fuck off.
Get away from my car.
Go, go.
Come on.
No, no, not me, either.
What's up, man?
Oh, wow.
I don't know how
this little fucker does it.
How do you do it?
You sure you don't want
one of those, um...
camp showers, you know?
The ones with the propane
and the hot water?
What about that phone?
I don't wanna be the one to
drive up and find you, like...
You know, there's, like,
animals and shit out here.
Good talk, Rob.
See you next Thursday, asshole.
Go out, go away.
Get out, get out, it's just...
I'm trying to surprise you.
I'm trying... I'm--
I'm OK.
It's just coyotes.
Back to bed, girl.
Hey, hey. You're OK.
It's just coyotes.
That's it.
Go to bed.
Grab it!
- Get it. Get it!
- I got it, got it.
Let her go!
Oh, my God!
Go, go, go, go!
Can I help you?
Is, uh...
Marge here?
Marge died ten years ago.
Do you have a phone?
Are you gonna order something?
Let's go, let's go,
let's go, let's go!
Thank you!
You motherfucker.
Does that hurt?
Listen, man.
You know this isn't, like...
my problem, right?
You want your supply...
I need my pig.
The classical
composers are those
of the first rank
who have developed music to
the highest pitch of perfection
on its formal side.
Therefore, where classical music
proves superior
to all other forms
is in its staying power.
It was beautiful 200 years ago
and will remain beautiful
200 years from now.
...something so potent
and elemental in the appeal.
"How's it going, Mac?"
You know I don't like
buyers coming out to the site.
Yeah, hey, Mac.
Sorry, I'm just, um...
Um, uh, we're just looking
for that couple
with the green pickup.
You got a little somethin'.
Uh, they haven't been around
for a few weeks.
What'd they do?
- Nothing.
Just a little misunderstanding
we gotta get sorted out.
They took my pig.
What kind of pig?
It's a truffle pig.
Wicky, you take over.
Anyone fucks with Wicky,
I'll break your fingers!
I expect certain things
from the people
I do business with.
I think that's reasonable.
We appreciate that, Mac.
- We really do appreciate it.
You've been digging my sites.
No. No, no, no.
We wouldn't do that.
- Uh-uh.
This guy comes telling me
you took his pig.
That means you're poaching.
OK, listen. We don't even
have the pig anymore.
OK? I mean, I swear.
- Who has it?
I don't know.
Did you see him?
I didn't get, like,
a fucking ID or...
it was just some guy
with money--
- Um, he came to us.
Oh, he... he drove a nice car.
What kind of car
did he drive, man?
It was... it was waxy.
It was just some city guy.
I don't...
I don't know.
So I guess that's it?
You just find a new one?
Another pig can't do
what she did.
I don't know, man, get a...
get a good trainer or something.
You lose a season while I train
a pig that'll never be as good?
Take me to the city.
"A city guy".
What are you gonna do?
Knock on every fuckin' door
in Portland?
I might know someone
who knows the industry.
You "might"?
I... I'm not taking you
to the fucking city
OK? That's where
I do my business.
Are you afraid?
Listen, what I do
is all about my reputation.
People talk.
People talk?
- Yeah.
People talk.
- Stop saying that.
You like this car?
You like...
that shirt?
Shut up.
Is this the spot?
I need $10.
Sure you do.
If you see a woman
walking through town
Covered in a black veil
from her head to the ground
Think about the love you lost
the night you left me
The week ending high...
Have you heard anything
about a pig?
I remember a time
when your name meant
something to people, Robin.
But now...
you have no value.
You don't even exist anymore.
You don't exist.
You even know his real name?
Open the door.
How do you know that guy?
Rob, how do you know him?
I used to live around here.
Was that Edgar?
How do you know Edgar?
What time is it?
- I don't have a watch.
Oh, shocker.
It's 9:15.
What are we doing?
We're waiting until 12:00.
Oh, shit!
Just you... Yeah, you go.
Go away.
I need to go inside.
We don't have a bathroom.
I'm having a night out
with my friend.
Don't say anything...
You stupid asshole...
He's gonna kill me...
- Yo!
What's up, my dude?
I didn't know
you were working tonight.
Is this guy with you?
Hey, listen...
He's my dad's friend.
I'm just showing him around
and we're just...
Just whatever, man.
- He's Buddhist.
I don't care.
Do you even know
where we're going?
We're going
to the Hotel Portland.
What hotel? What?
The Hotel Portland.
- I know this city.
There is no such thing
as a Hotel Portland.
I'm sticking my neck out.
And we're in my city now
so you have to...
You know, you gotta keep me
in the loop.
There is no loop.
We're finding my pig.
You're not part of a loop.
You're my ride.
Fuck you, man!
You're just a fucking
homeless asshole
who probably fucks his pig.
I'm so sick of your shit!
Do you know what
you're worth to me
without that pig? Nothing.
Fucking zero!
You're gonna have a fucking
stroke in that cabin
and I'm gonna be the only one
that fucking notices.
So how about try and give me
some fucking respect?
I don't fuck my pig.
Fuck this, man!
I am fucking outta here.
The hotel...
was torn down back in the '50s.
Now it's Pioneer Square.
But they just covered up
the subbasement, so...
it's all still there
under the park.
- Now it's Edgar's place.
That's where we're going.
Now you're in the loop.
Help me.
Whatever happens,
just stay back.
What does that mean?
What's "whatever"?
It's dusty.
Leave that off.
Your eyes will adjust.
Edgar's been running fights
for restaurant workers
for 30 years.
If your name means something,
they'll bid high.
That's all he sees.
How do you know that?
Who are you?
I can't sing anymore
Ten seconds.
That is 500 bucks for Dennis.
And next up, we've got...
Sha bop sha bop
- Are the stars...
Oh, shit.
Oh, my God.
I don't know if
We're in a garden
Is he dead?
I cannot believe
what we just saw.
Do we call someone?
Should someone help him?
I'm looking...
for my pig.
I'm sorry.
I don't cook very much.
You know the place?
Yeah, it's hot.
Can you get
a reservation for lunch?
You know, when I was a kid...
my parents used to do this...
"date night" thing.
I mean...
not a lot, my dad was...
really busy.
They'd usually come back
fighting and screaming
at each other
and my mum would get all...
this one night...
I remember
going to this restaurant and...
they came back
and they were so happy.
Like, they were smiling and...
talking about the food
and the wine
and really, really,
really drunk.
They talked about
that meal for years.
Even after the chef,
this huge chef
just disappeared.
That was your spot.
People still talk about it,
you know?
It's probably the only time
I remember my mum...
What happened to her?
Um, she killed herself.
She was...
she was never, like...
when you're like that...
It's just, it's gonna happen
sooner or later.
My dad was...
he was always the tough one
in the family.
So, his business is bomb.
I mean, he's not going
anywhere anytime soon.
He's very...
he's very "with it".
Know what I mean?
He's locked in.
We don't...
have to care.
People first came out here...
ten thousand years ago.
We would've been under...
four hundred feet of water.
Every 200 years...
we get an earthquake
right along the coast.
One's coming up.
When the shockwave hits...
most of the city will flatten.
Every bridge...
will fall...
into the Willamette
there's nowhere to go
even if we could.
Anyone who survives that's...
just waiting.
Five minutes later...
they'll look up...
and they'll see a wave...
ten storeys high.
And then all of this...
it's all gonna be
at the bottom of the ocean...
You should use stale bread
for French toast.
A tone becomes musical material
only by association
with another tone.
We might hear it alone
study its quality
and determine its degree of
acuteness or gravity, but it--
You want that 150%
You come to me.
If you want some bullshit
indicum, then you go to Katie.
You want some shit
that's been sitting in a--
Fuck. You want some shit
that's been sitting
in a cooler for three days?
Then you go to my father,
but if you want the real thing
if you want the real thing,
then you come to me.
I'm the king of the jungle!
Hey, you're buddies
with the sous-chef
over at Finway's, right?
How many grams are we at?
Uh, 220.
That's close enough.
- Cool. So, um--
Hey, Jess'll get you
on the way out, alright?
Right. Awesome, um...
You are friends with
Finway's guy, right?
Sweet. Sweet.
Yo, you think you could, like...
score me a res
for lunch today or...?
You know that's your dad's spot.
No, I... I mean, I know.
It's just like...
It's fine. He knows. It's cool.
I'm not there for business.
I'm just...
I have a friend in town.
Anyway, you know how busy
they are this time of year?
For sure, for sure, but...
I mean, you got like
mad ins there, so...
Come on!
Half off.
My friend is Robin Feld.
That sounds nice.
What is it?
It's called a handpan.
Wanna try it?
Does your face hurt?
What's your name?
I'm Rob.
I used to live here.
What happened
to the persimmon tree?
What's a persimmon?
It's a, uh...
It's an orange fruit.
Looks kind of like a tomato.
But you...
You can't eat it
if it's not ripe. it's awful.
if you give it time
it gets rid of these things
called tannins
and then they're very good.
I don't think we have
a persimmon tree.
That's OK.
Did it die?
We all have a set
of held beliefs
about the world around us.
To challenge them
is to acknowledge
our foundation is sand
but it opens us up
to something greater.
To pure connection.
To true life.
Today's journey begins
by uniting the depths of the sea
with the riches of our forests.
We've emulsified
locally-sourced scallops
encased in a flash-frozen
seawater roe blend
on a bed of foraged
huckleberry foam
all bathed in the smoke
from Douglas fir cones.
I'd like to speak to the chef.
Listen, man, can we try
to keep a low profile?
My dad sells to this place.
I'm not really supposed
to be in here.
It's OK.
Why what?
Why aren't you supposed
to be in here?
Oh, that's nice.
You know, we just have a thing.
We don't step on
each other's sales.
I've got my business
and he's got his.
Why don't you work for him?
I will, one day, you know
when I'm more established.
Your dad sounds terrible.
Well, you know...
we can't all live in the woods.
I mean, it sounds like
he's not very supportive.
Well, he knows
that I can make it on my own.
You know, in this business,
you got to...
You got to...
You know, I don't need help.
I don't need his help.
Let me do the talking, OK?
Hi, I'm Chef Finway.
Welcome to Eurydice.
The food is really good.
Well, thank you.
Thank you.
I'm so glad you're enjoying it.
we heard there were some
new truffles on the menu?
Well, we are planning
a few truffle dishes
for the winter menu.
I-It's a fascinating
and expanding local industry
with deep roots...
in old-world, uh, traditions.
I'm looking for a truffle pig.
I don't...
I, uh, I don't understand.
I just wanna know about the pig.
Tell him who you are.
Come on. Tell him.
Chef Feld?
Oh, my God.
Uh, may I?
Uh, how are you?
My God, you...
you've been off the scene
for what, uh, ten years?
Really? OK.
I thought you were,
um, well, I mean...
Time is very, uh...
- Sure.
I'm sorry, do you need
medical attention?
No, thank you.
Uh, you probably
don't remember me
but I actually worked at Hestia.
You were a prep cook
for two months.
Was it two months?
- I fired you
because you always
overcooked the pasta.
Ah, ah! Now, this is excellent.
This is a, uh, a 2012 Pinot
from just 20 miles away.
So do you know
about the pig?
Uh, why...
why do you want a pig?
It's my pig.
Oh, OK. Uh, that...
that... that's great.
That's a... that's a...
that's a great business.
It's a... it's a...
it's an expanding industry.
It's... it's...
Someone stole it.
I really, um...
I respect you, Chef,
I always have.
But I'm running a business here
and people have expectations
uh, critics, investors...
so forth, and, uh...
truffles are...
are... are a key part
of the whole, uh, concept
of the winter menu and they need
to be the top of the line.
So, you understand.
I-I have...
I have the utmost respect
for you, utmost.
What is the...
"concept" here?
Um, well, uh...
we're interested
in taking local ingredients
uh, native to this region and...
and just deconstructing them
you know, making the...
the familiar feel foreign.
Thereby giving us, uh...
an even greater appreciation
of food as a whole.
This is the kind of
cooking you like?
It's cutting-edge,
it's very exciting.
Uh, I mean, everybody loves it.
You like cooking it?
what was it you always used to
talk about opening?
Wasn't it a pub?
Every... everyone loves it here.
It's a...
this is a huge success.
Why didn't you open your pub?
I don't know that I really
wanted, uh, I mean...
it's such... that was
such a long time ago.
When I fired you, I asked you
what you wanted to do.
You said you'd have
a few rooms upstairs
a real English pub.
D-Did I say that?
- Yes.
Nobody wants pubs around here.
It's... It's...
It's a terrible investment.
What was going to be
your signature dish?
Liver scotch eggs
with a honey curry mustard.
They're not real.
You get that, right?
None of it is real.
The critics aren't real...
the customers aren't real...
because this isn't real.
You aren't real.
Derek, why do you care
about these people?
They don't care about you,
none of them.
They don't even know you
because you haven't shown them.
Every day, you wake up
and there'll be less of you.
You live your life for them
and they don't even see you.
You don't even see yourself.
We don't get a lot of things
to really care about.
who has my pig?
He's not somebody
you wanna make angry.
He will be angry.
Rob, it wasn't me, OK?
I don't even talk to him.
Open it.
Rob, I didn't say shit, OK?
Please, I...
I didn't even know about it.
Take me to him.
This is my dad, OK?
It's my dad.
You don't understand.
- Stop!
Stop! What the fuck?
The Camaro!
What the fuck? The Camaro!
You psycho.
- What's his address?
Listen, man,
I will get you a new one.
I will get you a new one.
I swear.
I'll take a hit for the season.
- What is it!
380 Northwest Willow.
We're done.
I don't wanna see you again.
So that's it?
I'm right here!
Man, I am right here.
We can work this out!
OK. You know what? Fuck!
All great men
are ahead of their time
and in all great music
no matter when written,
you shall find instances of--
Hi, Mum.
I met the guy who, um...
who made you that dinner.
Do you remember that dinner?
I actually think
you'd really like him.
Maybe not.
I don't know.
Would you wish Dad would
just let you die?
Don't you just wish
he'd let you die?
Excuse me.
Um, I was gonna
clean her trach, but...
- Mm.
...did you wanna see her?
Can I say...
it's an honour meeting you.
Half the restaurants in Portland
owe you a debt.
I'd like my pig back.
My son means well, but, uh...
he's not cut out
for this business.
It'll eat him alive.
I mean, he'll be OK.
I'll find him a nice desk job
something out of the way.
That's really where he belongs.
I don't care.
You know, he, uh...
he told me the first day
that he met you...
It was actually sweet.
And I didn't think the business
would take off, but...
Here I am with egg on my face.
But I think now it's time
for somebody who knows
what they're doing to take over.
I want...
my pig back.
- Yeah.
I'll give you $15,000
to walk away.
- No.
Twenty thousand.
- No.
Twenty million?
I control myself very well
but I don't think
you understand what I am.
From the very first moment
my son started selling for you
you've been in my world.
This whole time, all these years
Edgar, Finway...
those tweaked out fucks
they're mine.
That's just how it is...
and you have nothing
to bargain with.
Now, I will have
$25,000 delivered
to that little campground
of yours tomorrow.
If I see you again...
you do anything
to fuck with me
I will chop that pig up
into bacon.
I can buy another one.
Now get out of my house.
Were you always like this...
or was it just after she died?
Were you?
You made the right choice
being out there in the woods.
You had your moment
but there's nothing here
for you anymore.
There's really nothing here
for most of us.
You don't keep a grip on it
that's pretty much it.
Buy yourself a new pig.
I thought you might need
your ride.
I have a bike.
I'm sorry I told him about you.
I really didn't know
he'd take her.
I don't need my pig
to find truffles.
The trees.
The trees tell you
where to look.
Then why the fuck
did we do all this?
I love her.
Do you have a pen?
I have to write something.
Well, if the city floods, we can
always go up to Mount Hood.
Hood's an active volcano.
Well, I'm not fucking
moving to Seattle.
Fuck Seattle.
I'm gonna need you
to drop me off
and go and get
everything on that list.
I can't get all this stuff.
Check in with the names.
Tell them you're with me.
You want me to use your name?
Should I even ask
what we're doing?
We're getting my pig back.
Can I help you?
Hi, um...
I'm looking for Jezebel.
You'll have to
schedule an appointment.
Robin Feld sent me.
Are these all yours?
Well, now...
They used to belong
to Robin and Laurie.
Who's Laurie?
He didn't ask me to...
but I'm saving
the one next to it for him.
You tell him that, OK?
You made it a bakery?
I'm a baker.
I kept it the same
for a couple years.
I thought maybe you'd
come take it back.
But you didn't...
and, um...
it wasn't me.
You're a chef.
I'm a baker.
Do you still make
your salted baguette?
I do still make it.
The same recipe?
Same recipe.
Do you have a loaf?
Can I have another?
Bye, Chef.
You got rid of the curtains?
Laurie always wanted to.
This is better.
Dad, can you come out here?
We made you dinner.
You can leave.
We made you dinner.
Thank you.
Your son found this.
Get out.
Please, get out.
Get out!
Get out of my house!
Get out!
I remember every meal
I ever cooked.
I remember every person
I ever served.
Why are you doing this?
I'm sorry, but, um...
by the time I got it...
these waste of space junkies,
They were too rough.
We, uh...
She died.
What can I get you two?
What pie do you have today?
We don't do pie.
You don't do pie?
We have chocolate chip cookies
cheesecake, and brownies.
Alright. We'll get two brownies.
Can we have some coffee too?
Cream and sugar?
What are you thinking?
I was thinking...
if I never came
looking for her...
in my head...
she'd still be alive.
But she wouldn't be.
No, she wouldn't.
You OK?
I think I'm gonna walk.
You OK?
I'll see you Thursday?
...shall not be
difficult for him
to recognise
the three elements
on which music rests
melody, harmony,
and rhythm.
Can he recognise them
with sufficient--
Hey, no!
So I know we're going
to a really fancy restaurant
tonight and you're gonna
complain about the food
and I'm gonna have to get
really drunk to deal with it.
But it's your birthday...
and I love you.
This song reminds me of you.
Happy birthday.
Hey, little girl,
is your daddy home?
Did he go and leave you
all alone?
I got a bad desire
Oh-oh-oh, I'm on fire
Tell me now, baby,
is he good to you?
Can he do to you
the things that I do?
Oh, no
I can take you higher
Oh-oh-oh, I'm on fire
Sometimes it's like
someone took a knife
Baby, edgy and dull
and cut a six-inch valley
Through the middle
of my skull
At night I wake up
with the sheets soaking wet
And a freight train running
through the middle of my head
Only you can cool my desire
Oh-oh-oh, I'm on fire
Oh-oh-oh, I'm on fire
Oh-oh-oh, I'm on fire
