Pit Stop (2013) Movie Script

Yeah, no, it's a bar
on Fifth street called Billy's.
Yeah, it's a cool place,
got live music.
No, no...
it's a nice place.
You'll like it. The only place
in town to go dancing.
Hey, Gabe...
When you wanna go dancing
don't you go to Billy's?
Well, everybody here
agrees with me.
No, it is the place to go.
No, wear what you want.
It's a sawdust-on-the-floor
kinda joint.
You know, so bring boots...
wear a skirt if you want...

Ten Moves That Will Make Him
Go Crazy In Bed.
Ooh... Ernie...
You should've just asked me,
I've got twenty.
If a man doesn't
commit to his lover,
he controls his level
of vulnerability.
Some men cheat
to avoid any real intimacy.
Intimacy scares them,
so they distance themselves
from their wives
by cheating on them
and they don't get emotionally
involved with their lovers.
These kind of men
may also fear conflict.
Don't just reach
across the table, honey.
What do you want?
Mashed potatoes.
Ask nicely.
Can I have more potatoes, Dad?
Why, yes, you can.
Can Tucker have some, too?
Tucker doesn't like potatoes.
Yeah, he does.
Tucker hates potatoes.
What did you do
with these anyway?
They're really good.
Mixed in some
sour cream and chives.
I saw it online.
Cindy, no.
But he's hungry, Mom.
No he'll get sick
and poo-poo all over the place.
Come here, you made a mess.
Come here, boy.
Can you drop her off
at school tomorrow?
You got something going on?
Just gotta get
to the store early,
move some stuff
around for the sale.
All right.
Winston asked me out.
Can I go watch TV now?
Did you finish your vegetables?
Good girl.
Go put your plate in the sink.
You say yes?
To Winston.
You gonna go out with him?
You think it's a bad idea?
You don't need my approval.
I wasn't asking
for your approval.
Have a seat.
What'cha been up to?
Just taking care of stuff.
I spoke to Matt today.
He said that I can crash
at his place when I get there.
That's nice of him.
When are you heading out?
Next month.
Maybe three weeks.
Is that OK?
Yeah, it's OK.
Take your time.
I'm not rushing you.
I mean, I can move out
earlier if you want me to.
I'd understand.
Makes no difference.
You're sleeping
in the other room.
It's empty otherwise.
Have you thought about
going back to school?
I don't know
if I could afford it.
Well, you should start saving.
This is Chuck.
You finally picked up.
How's it going, man?
Everything's fine.
I might be headed
your way next week.
What for?
Got some work lined up there.
Maybe we can grab lunch?
Uh, I don't know.
I... I'm thinking of
spending the weekend.
Looking to get in
Friday night...
I can't see you.
Yeah... but I...
I still got some
of your stuff here.
Maybe I can just swing by
and drop 'em off?
No, they're just clothes.
Well, what do you
want me to do with them?
Can't you just throw 'em away?
You really can't
call me anymore, OK?
You still live with him?
Doesn't mind that you're
fuckin' around on him?
There's nothing
to fuck around on.
We already broke up.
But you still live with him.
That would drive me nuts.
I don't know how you guys do it.
How long were y'all together?
Close to two years.
You know that diner
down the street?
The one that's closed?
I used to work there.
He'd come by
for breakfast and lunch,
whenever I had a shift.
One day he asked me out,
and I moved in not
too long after that.
You love him?
I'm not kept,
if that's what
you're getting at.
I just fucking hate this place.
I hear ya'.
I kept telling him
that we should move,
but he likes it here.
I can't take it anymore.
You look better
than your picture.
You say that to every guy?
They usually look
better in their pictures.
No kiss?
Thank you very much, missy.
Just made my day.
Hi, Mr. Taylor.
Good morning, Cindy.
Hey, I'm Les Taylor.
Hi. The new guy, right?
How's Shannon?
She's good.
She just had to get
to work early today.
Glad we finally met.
She's told me a lot about you.
She say anything bad?
Not at all.
Tell her I said hello.
You bet.
Need any help?
No, I'm good.
I'm gonna break
for lunch in a bit.
Uh, are we still
good for tonight?
Want me to pick you up, or...
That'd be great,
if you don't mind.
Yeah, sure.
8 o' clock, OK?
Works for me.
All right.
See you later?
See you later.
"Ten Rules For Getting
the Right Attention Online."
Number one:
Cleavage photos
are for confused teenagers.
Just because you have
an awesome pair of boobs,
it doesn't mean you should
flash them everywhere -
especially online.
Bikini shots
are for insecure girls,
not confident women
you take out for a date.
Instead of "I'm confident
about my body," they scream,
"Look at me,
I'm always ready to party!"
If you can hear me,
do something.
Move your finger or something.
Let me know
I'm not wasting my time.
Tell me you want me to be here.
Where's that dumb fuck
you left me for?
I don't see him
coming to see you...
read you these stupid magazines!
You knew I'd come.
You knew I'd be the only one
to show up to take care of you.
I'm gonna get out of here, man.
Are we still
going to Shreveport?
Nah, I turned it down
this afternoon.
Wasn't worth it.
They won't budge
on their quote...
Turnaround would've been insane.
We would've been
working real long days.
Shit, man,
I don't blame you.
I got it.
- You sure?
- Yeah.
Thanks, man.
- Later, Russ.
- Later, bud.
What is it?
I need you
to move out tomorrow.
But you said-
I know what I said,
but I changed my mind.
It's better if you go.
- Tomorrow?
- Tomorrow morning.
But I haven't even packed yet!
There are empty boxes
in the garage.
Is he friendly?
Yeah, man,
he won't hurt a fly.
Hey, buddy.
Can I help you?
Yeah, is Shannon here?
Am I at the...
Is this... 515?
Sure is.
I thought that was her car.
You got me.
So she does live here?
I'm just messin' with you, man.
You must be Winston, right?
- Yeah.
- I'm Gabe.
She's getting ready.
Come on in.
Want something to drink?
I'm OK, thanks.
How old are you, sweetie?
Where are you two
headed tonight?
Hope she likes Italian.
She's not picky...
Unless it's sushi.
That's one thing
she doesn't like.
Good to know.
It's funny.
What's that?
She usually goes
for leaner guys.
Tall and lean.
That's what she does like.
You messin' with me again?
Don't get any
funny ideas about her.
- Pardon me?
- You heard me.
She's not that kind of girl.
Gabe, I wouldn't even think
of doing anything like that, OK?
I'm so sorry
that I'm running behind.
No problem.
We got plenty of time.
Got these for you.
Oh, thank you!
Wanna put these
in the water for me?
There's a vase in the kitchen.
I know.
I'm sorry for the short notice.
I appreciate it.
Yeah, if it's still available.
Can I get started
as soon as I get there?
I'm gonna need the money.
Lemme call you back.
You got enough boxes?
I think so.
I have some more
in my room if you run out.
One other thing -
leave your computer behind.
You gave it to me
for my birthday?
I would like to have it back.
I changed my mind
about that, too.
But I'll need it for college.
Why the fuck are you doing this?
You said it was fine last night!
You said there was no rush!
It's not fair!
I've gotta make plans!
Matt's gotta make room for me-
You've talked about leaving
for the past three months!
I come home everyday
and I see your ass
in front of the TV.
You don't wanna
go back to school.
You haven't tried
to find another job!
You met someone new,
didn't you?
You haven't been coming
home straight after work.
You met another boy
at a restaurant?
You wanted to leave, Luis.
I'm letting you go.
I need to get on with my life!
OK, we promised we
weren't gonna talk work.
So just, quick,
ask me a question.
OK, um...
So your daughter's really cute.
She is, isn't she?
Her name's Cindy, right?
What about Gabe?
Did he bust your balls?
No, no...
I take it you guys are still
pretty friendly with each other?
We've known each other
for so long,
and we were really good friends
before we got married.
We're still really good friends.
Does that bother you?
No, no.
I wish I got along
that way with my ex.
Well, it'd be a lot harder
if we didn't have Cindy.
We made a decision
to raise her together.
You don't have kids, right?
No, we never did.
Um... I love kids though.
I have a friend up in Dallas;
she's got a little boy.
I'm the godfather,
so I get to go up there
and spoil him whenever
I have a chance.
That's nice.
How old is he?
Jamie just turned five.
And, oh...
the other day,
he accidentally called me Dad.
It was a little awkward
but really sweet
at the same time.
Is she not married -
your friend?
You know, she, uh...
Well... she's...
What? Is she, like,
a dyke or something?
Yeah, I mean...
She's gay.
Does that bother you?
I'm just kidding.
That doesn't bother me at all.
Why would you think
that bothers me?
What's wrong?
Do you wanna stop or something?
No... It's just...
Do you not know how to kiss?
What are you talking about?
Well, you just...
You don't sit there
with your mouth open.
You have to move your lips.
Do you want me to show you?
Like this...
You can use your tongue too.
It won't freak me out.
I guess I'm still
a little out of practice.
It's OK.
Do you want a blow job?
Yeah, there's
no one else around.
Maybe we should...
go back to my place?
I live around the corner...
It might be more comfortable.
Maybe you'd feel
more comfortable
if I show you a little of me?
My God...
- Shannon...
- What?
I think I should take you home.
I just feel like you've
had too much to drink.
I've been getting some
messages from this number.
Is this Linda?
My name is Ernesto Gameros.
I'm a friend of Martin.
I don't speak
to my brother anymore.
I'm sorry to hear that.
I just thought you
might wanna know that
he was in a car accident
about two months ago.
Is he OK?
He's in a coma.
His doctor said
there's still brain activity,
so he could still wake up.
It's just a matter of time.
I'm so sorry I didn't
call you back sooner.
It's OK...
I didn't think it was right
to leave you
a message about this.
I wanted to tell you
over the phone.
You live with Martin, right?
He told me about you
a while ago.
I did live with him.
I don't anymore.
I visit him at
the hospital now and then.
He's been transferred to
a nursing home here in town.
They're taking
really good care of him there.
Is this about his bills?
No, no.
I got your number
from some of his things.
I just thought
you might wanna know.
Go back to sleep.
I wanna stay up.
Mommy will be mad.
It's way past your bedtime.
I want mommy to tuck me in.
I'll tell her to come in
as soon as she gets home.
Cindy, come on, now.
You can barely
keep your eyes open.
You can stay up
as long as you want...
as long as it's in this bed
with the covers on.
I know, it ain't fair.
When's Chuck coming back?
I don't know.
He's probably not
coming back for a while, still.
Can you call him?
What would I say?
You could say hi.
And then what?
You could tell him to
bring me another teddy bear.
You already have
a bunch of stuffed animals.
I want another one
like this one.
Maybe he can mail it to you.
See, he's got a job.
And that job is in
another town very far away.
Too far away to be sending toys
to little girls
who don't need them.
Gonna wait up for mom?
Hey there, you two.
Looks like you
had a nice evening.
We did.
Can you go back inside?
Oh, sorry.
Didn't realize I was intruding.
Winston, are you OK to drive?
You sober?
- I'm fine.
- We got a couch-
Gabe, just go back inside!
I'll be all right, thanks.
I had a really nice time.
I'm sorry, I gotta
go inside and lay down.
Yeah, yeah, of course.
I'll see you tomorrow?
Yeah. Bye.
Looks like
somebody partied hard.
Shut up.
Is Cindy in bed?
Want me to make you some tea?
How 'bout an aspirin?
My head is spinning.
Is that cause
you drank too much?
Or is it cause Winston
is such a good kisser?
Lay off me, all right?
We had a blast.
I hear he took you to Matteo's.
He did...
I drank a whole bottle of wine.
I don't think he had more
than a sip the whole night.
Last time I ate there
was with you.
Our last anniversary.
- You remember.
- Why wouldn't I?
I didn't.
I didn't even think about it
until the waitress came out
with the dessert menu.
They still have
that special cake.
You know, the one
you tried to order,
but you couldn't pronounce it.
We laughed so hard.
We thought it was so funny.
We both drank a lot that night.
Winston ordered it for us.
I didn't even ask.
He just picked it out,
ordered it, said it perfectly.
And I just felt like...
I miss us.
You and me, and Cindy,
and the way we were.
We're still all together.
We're still a family, right?
I guess...
I don't know.
Why do you have to-
No, don't...
You want me to come back?
I'll move back in here
with y'all.
I don't mind.
I'm not with Chuck anymore.
No, it's better this way.
Then what?
What else can I do?
You want me to stay away?
Cindy needs you.
I need you.
It's just...
Sometimes, I miss you.
But that's just something
I have to deal with.
You ever miss me?
I see you everyday.
You know what I mean.
You smell so good.
Come here, girl.
I'm leaving.
Bye, Sasha.
I'll miss you.
Take care of yourself, Ernie.
Yes, sir, who's this?
It's Les Taylor.
Hey, Les,
everything all right?
Yeah, yeah.
Cindy OK?
Oh, she's fine, no worries.
I'm sorry.
I was just calling...
Listen, are you
working tomorrow?
I don't know if you
work on Saturdays.
No, I got tomorrow off.
What's up?
I was thinking about
heading into the city tonight.
I thought I'd check
and see if
maybe you wanted
to come with?
There's a film playing
I'd like to see,
and it'd just be nice
to get outta town.
Can I call you back?
Sorry, I'm in the
middle of something here.
That's the reason
you came in here?
Gabe, I thought
it was an emergency.
I can't believe you told
a complete stranger about me!
He's not;
he's Cindy's teacher,
So you guys are pals now?
You hang out and stuff?
He's come into
the store a few times.
We went to lunch.
I used my employee discount
to get him a grill.
I wasn't supposed to,
but teachers don't make
that much money, all right?
That somehow makes it OK
for you to tell him
everything about me?
I didn't tell him
that much about you.
I just maybe implied-
Great, that's just great.
It is great.
Isn't this what you wanted?
You can't keep your mouth shut.
Fuck you!
I bet you told Winston, too.
I told fucking everyone
you're the biggest
cocksucker in town, OK?
Keep your voice down.
I didn't tell Winston.
I wanted to help.
I thought it'd do you some good
to meet some new people -
that's all.
Just promise me
you won't go around
telling people
my business again.
I mean it, you can't just...
I get it, I get it.
So you're gonna
go out with him?
Come on...
You're gonna get me in trouble.
Tonight's the night...
I won't put up a fight...
If you want me,
you can have me
Better hold on tight
Tonight's the night
I'm gonna make you feel right
I'm gonna love you
Till we come into
the broad daylight
The night.
- Hey.
- Hey.
I was so busy today
I didn't get a chance
to say hello.
What's up?
Are you OK?
Yeah, I'm fine.
I thought maybe
you were avoiding me today.
I wasn't.
Did you think I was?
Maybe you weren't.
Maybe I was just...
Forget it.
See you Monday.
Have a good evening.
Hey, uh...
Last night didn't really
go real good, did it?
It didn't?
I'm kind of a lightweight,
and I'm pretty sure
I made a fool of myself.
You were fine.
Don't worry about it.
I didn't embarrass you?
Not at all.
I just wanted you to know
that I didn't
expect for you to...
When I...
I didn't want you to think...
Look, I just had
a really nice time.
I hope you did, too.
I did...
Dinner was lovely.
Thank you.
You're welcome.
I really just want to try
to get to know you better.
We had four
really good years together.
always a heartbreaker.
You know about Joyce?
Well, she was his
high school sweetheart.
And when they split up,
she just thought
she couldn't make him happy.
She probably still
thinks so to this day.
Poor girl.
Martin has blamed me...
for not being on his side -
you know, with the family.
So we always fought about it.
But we always
made up at the end.
It's just like
when we were kids.
Then the last time we fought,
he said he didn't want
to talk to me anymore.
This was two years ago.
But I thought
about him every day.
I just didn't think we'd be
mad at each other this long.
He's my only brother.
Do you really think
he's gonna wake up?
Have you told your parents?
I don't think...
they would come
even I told them.
Well, you came.
They'll come, too.
He used to subscribe
to these magazines.
You can read
the articles to him.
He'd like that.
Shannon told me
you're a contractor?
Been doing that long?
Feels that way.
I got into it after
I dropped out of college.
Took a few years off,
but turns out it's just
something I'm good at.
How long have you been teaching?
A little over three years.
I used to teach at Waxahachie.
Where are you from originally?
Pond Creek, Oklahoma.
Where in the hell is that?
Yeah, exactly.
It's about 100 miles
north of Oklahoma City.
I've always planned
on moving to a big city.
Except teaching jobs
are hard to come by,
so, you know, here I am.
Yeah, that's how it happens.
Have you ever
thought about moving?
Out of Texas?
Just out of town.
I almost did...
But, here I am.
Sorry about the movie.
I didn't realize
how tired I was.
No problem.
It was pretty long.
I didn't know it was
gonna be in French.
read funny, too.
It's like it wasn't
even translated well?
Yeah, I noticed that,
especially in the first half.
You speak French?
I took some classes in college.
Were you gonna move with him?
Chuck, right?
That's his name?
Oh... I'm sorry.
We do not
have to talk about that.
I didn't mean to pry.
I was gonna...
We didn't know where;
we just wanted to get
the hell outta Dodge.
Start over...
Just leave our families...
Forget everything.
I couldn't do it.
I couldn't just
walk away from my girls.
In the end,
it didn't matter anyway...
His wife found out.
Turns out, he was all talk.
He stopped seeing me.
Won't return my calls.
Next thing I knew
they'd moved off to Louisiana.
I broke up with a married guy
when I was in Waxahachie.
I knew he was
married when we met.
I just never even
thought about it...
until I ran into him and
his wife at the store one day.
She reminded me of my mother.
She even kinda looked like her.
It was the weirdest thing.
I really miss him.
I thought the distance
would make it easier,
but it just...
makes me wanna
call him up even more
just to hear
the sound of his voice.
- Hey.
- Hey.
It's me.
Where are you at?
Somewhere in New Mexico.
Just stopped for gas.
Luis, you OK?
I'm sorry I fucked up.
I didn't mean to hurt you.
I don't know if I could do this.
Luis, you're still young.
You can do whatever you want.
You can always start over.
I don't wanna see you
moving back here anytime soon.
You understand, Luis?
Just do the best you can,
and get your shit together, OK?
I want you
to really think about
going back to school,
getting a degree.
You don't wanna end up like me.
You're a good man, Ernie.
You work hard and you
deserve so much more.
I'll call you when
I get there, OK?
I'll be here...
I'll always be here.
I'd like to ask you in,
but I'm not sure
if I'm ready to...
be with someone again.
You must think I'm an idiot.
I'm sorry if I gave you the
wrong impression about tonight.
I don't even know what I was
thinking when I called you.
I guess I just wanted to get
out of my shell, you know?
I was really hoping
we can be friends.
Sure, sure...
I mean, small town like this,
we need all the friends
we can get, right?
Can I ask you something?
You gotta be honest.
Yeah, of course.
How old do you think I am?
You're the same age
as Shannon, right?
I'm older than her.
I'm 35.
I'm 34.
You seemed younger.
Oh, bless your heart.
Why do you ask?
I was just wondering.
I just always feel older.
I just always feel like
I'm not, you know, hip.
I'm not hip either, Gabe.
Thanks for the ride.
Goodbye, Les.
Baby, did I tell you
All the things you meant to me?
Baby, did I tell you
All I wanted us to be?
Before you ran away
with someone else...
Baby, did I tell you
All my dreams
that you were in?
Before I left to work
Or came back home
to you again...
Or did I keep
those things to myself?
Do not forget me
Now that we've
said our farewell
How I regret the...
Things that I've kept to myself
What's his name?
- Tucker.
- Hello, Tucker.
- You want a drink?
- Yeah.
- I only got beer.
- Yeah, that's fine.
Have a seat.
Here you go.
Hey, boy...
Sit, sit... Shake.
Now... Spin.
Come on, spin!
Good boy...
How long have you had him?
He's six now.
I found him
as a puppy in a dumpster.
He's the only one
in the litter that survived.
He was so weak, I thought
he wasn't gonna make it.
You wanna feed him?
Come here, dog,
go say hi.
He loves that.
I have a cat.
Her name's Sasha.
She showed up
at my backyard one day
and never left.
I guess that's what happens
when you feed them.
And now I don't know
what I'd do without her.
You look just like your picture.
That's good, I guess?
No, it is.
I guess you go
into these things
always expecting the rug to
get pulled out from under you.
One time, I met this fella,
who just sent a picture
of somebody else.
He'd come in from San Antonio,
but I split as fast as I could.
Yeah, that happens.
I felt bad...
He'd driven all that way,
but what could you do?
When I saw your picture,
I was pretty sure
I've met you before.
Don't remember when,
but I'm pretty sure I have.
Or at least seen you around.
You want another?
Yeah, sure.
I guess I'll see you around?
You can call me anytime.
I'd kiss you again
if we weren't standing here.
That'd be nice.
Baby, did I tell you
All the things
you meant to me
Baby, did I tell you
All I wanted us to be
Before you ran away
to someone else
Baby, did I tell you
All my dreams
that you were in
Before I left to work
Or came back home
to you again
Or did I keep those
things to myself
Please do not forget me
Now that we've
said our farewell
how I regret the things
That I've kept
to myself
Baby did I tell you
All the rules that
we would break
Or did I tell you
All the love that
we would make
Does it make a
difference either way
While I stood
there confident
And full of pride
Baby did I tell you
I was trembling inside
It's funny all the
words I didn't say
Please do not forget me
Now that we've
said our farewell
how I regret the things
That I've kept
to myself
