Secrets in Suburbia (2017) Movie Script

[The Barber of Seville overture]
[music continues]
Oh, no, I'm fine. Thank you.
You okay?
Yeah. Why wouldn't I be?
Did you check up on the kids?
No reception.
Have you seen, Kim?
Kim? No. Why?
Scarlett's about to
start her speech.
There she is.
Jack: Gloria?
-Nice to see you. -Nice
to see you, too.
This is Jill, my wife.
Nice to meet you. I'm Gloria.
Jack and Jill, I'm sure you
take a lot of flak for that.
For what?
You know, Jack and Jill...
ran up the hill?
This is my husband, Phil.
This is Jack, Lulu's vet.
-Well... -Oh.
Is this thing on?
Good evening ladies
and gentlemen.
I just wanted to say a few
words before you leave.
First, I want to thank
all of you for coming,
Mayor Grant and all of you
who are here to celebrate
that Troy is no
longer in my life.
Screw you Troy!
Thanks to his philandering ways
I now own this
wonderful mansion.
And when you choose who to stay
friends with, just remember...
I got all the money.
And talking about
friends, this is serious,
I'd like to propose a toast
to my three best friends
since high school.
The three-most incredible
women I've ever met.
Monica, the smartest and
fiercest woman I know,
who by the way, is also
my divorce attorney.
Oh, and Kim, my beautiful
realtor friend.
And last but not least, Gloria,
who is not overwhelmed by the
pressures of a high-powered job
or her appearance,
bless her heart...
I'm sure she meant
it as a compliment.
...because she has all the
time in the world to hear me
carry on about my problems.
If it weren't for
these three women
and our sacred Thursday
afternoon get-togethers,
I can assure you, I
wouldn't be here today.
That, and the
bipolar medication.
Monica, Kim, and Gloria,
please join me on stage so we
can raise our glasses together.
Oh, wait, wait, wait.
Phil. Take one with the phone.
[Troy] Where is she?
Oh, my god. It's him.
Where is she?
It wasn't enough
for you, was it?
It's never enough? You
always want more, and more?
What are you doing? Don't move.
You don't have to do this.
Stay out of it? It's
none of your business?
I understand what you're going
through, but it's not worth it.
What the hell do you understand?
Everything about her is fake.
She was nothing when I met her.
I gave her everything.
The money, the
house, the implants,
I made her what she is and
this is how she pays me back?
You'll meet someone else,
you'll make more money.
You don't understand.
She won't stop until I'm dead.
Just give me the gun.
Troy. Just give me the gun.
I love that bitch.
Troy, just give me the gun.
[screaming] No, Troy! God!
[classical music]
Nicky, Bradley. Time to go.
Can't you read stuff
for kids your age?
I like it.
I need to go.
Please. Just three more pages.
No. Grandma is outside.
Call me before you go
to bed, you hear me?
Wait. I love you.
Bye. I love you.
-Bye. -Bye.
Bradley: Shotgun?
Nicky: I got it?
Lulu! How many times
do I have to tell you
to stay out of the trash.
You left the trash
can open again.
[Phil] Sorry.
There'll be plenty to
drink at the party.
Do we have to go?
I was just thinking that
maybe we can stay here
and have our own party.
Baby, you're wrinkling my suit.
That's a nice tie. Is it new?
Uh, yeah. It was a gift.
From whom?
Someone at the office.
I miss you.
I miss you too.
But we can't do this right now.
This is important to her.
You know that.
What's so important about it?
It's just another excuse for
Scarlett to show off her money.
You shouldn't be jealous.
You think I'm jealous
of Scarlett?
Money doesn't mean
anything to me.
That's because you've
always had it.
Yes, my parents were rich.
So what?
Trust me, it's better to be rich
and unhappy than poor and unhappy.
Is this about my father's will again?
What is it that you need?
You have a nice
house, a nice car,
your kids go to a good school.
That's not the
point, you know it.
The point is it's our money,
we should be able to do
whatever you want with it.
It was his money and his right
to do whatever he wanted.
Maybe you're the one who's
jealous of Scarlett.
You know how I ended up in
Saint Francis with you.
A scholarship, I know.
My dad got sick working
in your dad's coal mines.
So when he did nothing but sit
around and get drunk all day,
my mom had to go to work at
Saint Francis as a janitor,
just so I could get a
scholarship there.
I used to watch kids piss all
over the walls and laugh at me,
telling me my mother was going to wipe
that up so I could go to school with them.
It's more than money, Gloria.
It's dignity.
I'm sorry.
Are you ready to go?
I forgot the present
in the office.
What wrong with you today?
Why are you fighting with me?
I'm not fighting with you
I just asked you what you two
were talking about.
How are you two doing?
Enjoying the party?
Everything is perfect.
Thanks. I'm glad.
Do you mind if I steal Phil
for a couple of minutes?
I have a couple of clients
I'd like to introduce him to.
Okay? Thanks, honey.
[classical music continues]
-What's wrong?
Come on, I'm a lawyer, I can
tell when you're lying.
I think Phil wants to leave me.
Oh. I'm sorry.
I just don't understand
what I did wrong.
I take care of the kids,
I cook, I clean.
I've sacrificed my whole
life for him
and I don't even
complain about it.
Maybe it's not about you.
Did he say something?
To me?
Is he seeing someone else?
How should I know?
I don't know.
You're his oldest friend.
I thought he might have...
If he's seeing someone
I have no idea. I promise.
I think it's Scarlett.
He's never gotten over her.
That was a long time ago and he
chose you, didn't he?
Yeah, after she dumped him.
I don't think anything is
going on, Gloria. Really.
Now she's divorced and
she has all this money,
why wouldn't he choose her?
Don't say that.
He bought two tickets
to Buenos Aires.
I found the receipt
on his computer today.
Did you ask him about it?
Then maybe he's planning
a surprise for you.
Give him the benefit
of the doubt.
What are you two
gossiping about?
Oh, you're talking
about me then.
I'm about to cut the cake.
I prepared a speech.
I'd like you to hear it.
We'll be right there.
Have you seen Kim?
Meet me by the pool
in a couple of minutes?
Um, hmm.
Cool. Thanks, honey.
Where are you going?
You're not planning on talking
to her now, are you?
I'm going to find Phil.
I'm sure he won't want to miss
Scarlett's speech.
Wait, wait, wait, Phil...
Take one with the phone.
Oh, my...!
That party must have cost
at least a hundred grand.
How many people do you think
there were tonight?
I don't know.
You okay?
I'm fine.
Do you want to talk about it?
What made you run up
to him like that?
I don't know.
What did he say?
He said he still loved her.
So much for love.
What's this?
I prepared your favorite.
Wow! I see.
How did you sleep?
I passed out.
How about you?
I was thinking we should go
to a marriage counselor.
I made a list of a few that
I liked so you can choose.
What for?
I think it'll help us
We're communicate now,
aren't we?
I'm worried Phil,
I don't want us to end up
like Scarlett and Troy.
You're not Scarlett and
I'm definitely not Troy,
so there's nothing for you
to worry about.
This is important to me.
I'm late for a meeting
at the course.
We can talk about it later.
Thanks for breakfast.
hey guys.
Did you have a great time at Grandma's
Is it true there is a
shooter at the party.
Where did you hear that?
Nicky saw it on facebook.
Everyone is talking about it.
they say he shot himself.
Is true.
Cool, did you get to see
him blow his brain out?
no it's not cool
is actually very sad.
Is actually Scarlett Ex.
what why do he do it.
Cos he is a psycho
he's not.
he wasn't a psycho he was just going
through a very difficult time.
A situation and a breakdown
He should have shot Scarlett.
Server the Lord with gladness.
Come before him and
joyfully sing.
I will sing loving
kindness and justice.
Oh, thee Lord, I
sing thee praises.
I will give heed...
I will give heed...
Someone please tell Scarlet we
can all see her grief from here.
[classical music]
It's fabulous!
No! I will tell my client, but
I can't make any promises.
What are you doing?
I'll call you back.
We are here to have fun.
That was Troy's lawyer.
Are you sure you want to
go through with this?
Why not?
You have his house,
the business,
if we go after the hidden
assets he'll go to jail.
As someone once said, frankly,
I just don't give a damn.
He started it, now
let's finish it.
And I thought I was ruthless.
Gloria, Phil!
It's true.
If divorce was easier, I would
have left him years ago.
The only time Troy
ever gave me an orgasm
was when he signed
the divorce papers.
[all laughing]
I'll be right back.
Gloria: What were you
two talking about?
How are you two doing?
What the hell are you doing?
I have a surprise for you.
-What's wrong? -Stop!
I can't do this.
Are you kidding me?
What do you mean
you can't do this?
You know what I mean.
I didn't have a choice.
I was going to lose everything.
But it's over now.
We can be together.
What do you mean, no?
I'm not a teenager anymore.
I'm not gonna play
these games with you.
What are you talking about?
You're sick, Scarlett.
One minute you want to jump me and the
next you want to slit your wrists.
I used to find it thrilling
but now I realize
it's just pathetic.
I'm serious, leave me
and my family alone.
[door opens and closes]
Give him the benefit
of the doubt.
Maybe he's planning
a surprise for you.
What are you two
gossiping about?
Oh, you're talking
about me then.
I'm about to cut the cake.
I prepared a speech.
I'd like you to hear it.
We'll be right there.
Scarlett. Scarlett?
Hey, what's up?
Can we talk?
Can it wait till later?
I know about you and Phil.
What are you talking
about, honey?
How could you do this?
I'm your friend,
I'm the only one who's stood by you
through all your ups and downs.
And God knows there's
been a lot of them.
I have no idea what
this is about.
You can play dumb blonde
with anyone but me.
I know you. There isn't a dumb
calorie in your whole body.
I just want to know when you
started sleeping with him, again.
Or if you just never stopped?
I'm not sleeping with him!
Come on, Scarlett! When
you want something,
you stop at nothing to get it.
You know it's true.
Gloria, stop. There's
nothing between us.
Please, just stop denying it. At
least give me that much credit.
He still wears the Baume Mercier
watch that you gave him.
It's a nice watch.
How can you do this?
You can have any man you want.
Why my husband?
If you take him, you'll
destroy my entire life.
If things aren't going
well between the you two,
find someone else
to blame it on,
because this time it's got
no thing to do with me.
I haven't slept at
all since the party.
Oh, sister, please.
Oh, Gloria, Phil.
Thank you so much for coming.
You have no idea how hard
this has been on me.
I tried calling you a few times
and you didn't answer my calls.
I just wanted to make
sure you are okay.
Are you coming on Thursday?
I don't think so.
I'll call you later.
What's up with her?
I don't know.
[phone ringing]
Hi, is this Bradly's mom?
I'm calling from the nurse's
office at Highland Woods.
Bradly is fine but we
need you to pick him up.
Is he okay?
Okay. What happened?
I don't want to talk
about it, okay?
Who hit you?
It was nobody.
If you don't tell me right now,
I'm gonna start asking around.
Okay, fine. It was Matt.
What? I can't believe that! I'm
going to call his mom right now.
No! Mom. Please, It's
over, we settled it.
It was my fault.
I hit him first.
Phil: Yes.
I am working on it!
No, I can't talk right now.
Bradly: Can you guess it?
Nicky: What do you think?
[indistinct dialogue]
What's this?
Pizza party.
I didn't have time to go to the
market so I just ordered delivery.
Want a slice?
We have pepperoni.
What happened to your nose?
Matt beat him up at school.
We talked about it.
Have you talked to
Matt's parents?
Why not?
Because Bradly hit him first.
And you reward him with pizza?
Matt was teasing him.
-I don't care! -Sorry.
You're sorry?
If I would have done something like that
my dad would have beat the crap out of me.
Okay, you're over reacting.
He let his emotions get the
best of him, that's all.
That's all?
That's the point, Gloria.
Do you know how
this makes me look?
Do you?
-Go to your room.
-I'm not done yet.
[screaming] I said,
go to your room, now!
Phil. What are you doing?
Do you understand that he was fighting
because he was trying to defend you?
I don't care. I really don't.
He has to learn to be a man.
And he's never going to do that if
you keep treating him like a baby?
He still pees the
bed, for God's sake.
Phil, what are you doing?
Why are you acting like this?
Like what?
I'm fine.
It's a little cold, right?
I mean, it's still good, you know.
I'll eat it.
Hey there.
What's wrong?
You want something to eat?
I do apologize for
stopping by unannounced
but you are not answering
my phone calls.
Where was this?
The Rostropovich
competition in Paris.
Are you still playing?
No, I gave my Cello to Nicky.
How's she doing?
She's fine.
Did I do something to upset you?
Why do you ask?
Ever since my party you've
been acting strange with me.
Sorry. I just need some
time to figure things out.
Is this about Phil again?
Why don't you just
get rid of him?
It's not that easy. I
have kids to think about.
You have to take care
of yourself first.
What happened to you?
You used to be so
confident, so cool.
Monica, Kim, and I, we
always wanted to be you,
and now it's like you've
given up on yourself, babe.
What am I supposed to do?
Just throw it all away?
People make mistakes.
Relationships have
their ups and downs.
Phil and I have been going through
a rough patch since my dad died,
but I know we can
just get through it.
That's another thing I've
always admired that about you.
How idiotically hopeful you are.
I rather be hopeful,
than cynical.
Now, I have things to do. So,
if you need anything else?
Tomorrow is Thursday.
I need space.
Who's going to bring the wine?
I'll give you a bottle
if you need it.
No, it's okay.
Holler at me if you
change your mind.
Okay, we're meeting
at five, as usual.
-Bye. -Bye.
This stuff's horrible.
The guy at the store said it
was the most expensive bottle.
Gloria, is the only one of y'all who
can pick out a decent bottle of red.
I'm worried about her.
Ever since the party she's
been acting strange.
Well, she did tell me at the party she
discovered something on Phil's computer.
You should put your
investigator on Phil.
If he's up to something we
should help her catch him.
If you hire an investigator,
I'll tell him.
You wouldn't bust a
grape at a fruit fight.
I don't have to listen to this.
I'm leaving.
No, I'm sorry. Relax.
Sit down. I'm not
gonna do anything.
For now.
Well, I'm going to fetch something to
wash this awful taste out of my mouth.
Do you gals want anything?
-Um hmm. -I can go.
No it's fine. I'll get it.
[classical music]
Hey, neighbor.
How much do you think
this circus cost?
I don't know about
the grand total,
but this beluga fish caviar
is ten grand a pound.
It's so disgusting but
you have to try it.
How far we've come, you and I.
Did you look into that
thing I sent you?
I can't do it.
Come on.
I'm just asking you
to help me out.
No, you're asking me for
much more than that.
You're asking me to
betray my friend.
And I'm giving you half a
million reasons to do it.
It's not about money.
It's always about money.
I saw it in your face,
every morning when we had to
take the bus to Saint Francis,
past their big gorgeous houses.
You know what they
used to call us?
-The Charity kids.
-The Charity kids.
How much longer do
they get to remind us
that without them,
we'd be worthless?
I looked into it.
The money can only be used for
your children after they turn 18.
Yes, I know that, that's why I
need you to help me change it.
There has to be a way.
There are always ways, but they
would have to involve her.
What do you mean involve her?
The money can be invested in
what's called an "orphan" company,
and then through some maneuvering
we can get around it.
But Gloria is the sole manager.
If she's not on board,
you can't touch it.
The whole point was
to keep her out.
I know.
I'm sorry.
What if we falsify
her signature?
How long do you think it would
take her to figure it out
and for both of us
to end up in jail?
There are better
ways to handle this.
Like what?
[cell ringing]
Hey neighbor,
how's it going?
Good. Look, I can't
talk right now
but I just wanted to
give you a heads up.
Scarlett was at your
house yesterday
chit chatting with Gloria.
She knows that you're after her money
so you have to be extra careful.
Don't worry. I have
it under control.
Good. We'll talk later. Bye.
So, I put some
candies in your bags
but they're for you to
share with everyone, okay?
I'm gonna miss you guys so much.
Mom, you're embarrassing us.
Sorry, sorry.
Make sure you put on a lot of
sunscreen and bug spray, okay?
-Okay. -And Bradly,
no hitting, okay?
If someone teases you, you
go to a counselor, okay?
-No fighting. -Got it.
Do you think you can
come home early today?
I was just thinking, since we're alone,
it'd be nice for us to hang out together.
Yeah, I can probably do that.
I have a lot of stuff I
have to do first though.
Okay, I love you.
I love you, too.
Honey! What are you...
Are you okay?
Jack: Gloria, what's going on?
Jack, it's Lulu. I don't
know what's wrong with her.
I found her by the trash.
She's not moving, and her
tongue is sticking out.
Is she breathing?
Barely. She's panting.
Did you see if she ate anything?
Anything that could
have made her sick?
I don't know. I'm
on my way there.
Okay, bring her.
Just do it.
I'll call you back.
What happened?
How long was I out?
Since yesterday.
They had to operate on your leg.
What about Lulu?
Lulu's dead.
I'm going to have her cremated.
Do the kids know?
No, I haven't told
them anything yet.
I don't want to ruin
their vacation.
I'd like to wait
till they get back.
Good idea.
What happened?
I was taking Lulu to the vet.
I found her on the ground with
her tongue sticking out and...
[knocking at door]
Doctor: Good morning.
I'm Doctor Leibowitz.
-Hey, Doc. -Hi.
-How's she doing?
-Let's take a look.
How are you feeling?
Not good.
Do you have any pain?
A little. I feel a little numb.
Is that normal?
You're still under the
effects of the anesthesia.
You know you're really lucky.
You could've been paralyzed.
When do you think we
could take her home.
Her urea and creatinine numbers came
out a little high in the lab report.
What's that?
They're indicators
of kidney function.
Have you had kidney
problems before?
No. I don't think so.
We'll need to conduct more tests to
really understand what's going on.
Right now? Is that
really necessary?
Can't we come back another
day and have them?
Why would you want to do that?
I want to get her home. I think
she'll recoup better there.
I understand.
I just want to make sure she's
clearly on the road to recovery.
Who will be looking
after her at home?
I will.
Her mobility will be
restricted for some time.
Can you take care of that?
Of course.
Alright, I'll sign the
discharge papers.
But just know that I'm releasing
you against medical advice.
-Well, maybe... -We're fine.
We know that.
Let's get you home.
Hope you like it.
I'm not hungry.
Babe, you have to eat.
How are you feeling?
How does it look
like I'm feeling?
You got presents.
Monica sent you these snacks,
Kim sent you this flower,
and Scarlett sent these magazines
so you wouldn't get bored.
"Fifty ways to please your man
in bed." Sounds interesting.
Not really.
I'm just worried about
our insurance premiums.
I'm sure they're
going to skyrocket.
And then there's the health
insurance with the co-pays
and the deductibles...
I don't really know
what else to say.
I'm really sorry.
I was...
I was talking to Monica...
about the trust.
And I think we should look
into using some of the money.
Okay, I didn't want to
have to tell you this...
but the company is going through some
financial difficulties right now
and this money
could really help.
That money is for
our kids future.
It's ten million dollars?
What are they going to do
with ten million dollars?
I'm sorry, but I'm not
changing my mind.
I see.
Where are you going?
I forgot your juice.
I'm sorry that I've been
a little rude lately.
I'm just a little cranky.
That's fine. I understand.
I'm sure we can make
some cuts in the budget
and I'll sell some
stuff if we have to,
but I really don't want to
touch my father's trust.
I'm sure if your dad
were still alive
and he saw what we're going
through he would change his mind.
That would never happen.
-How do you know?
-Because I know.
You know, maybe I was wrong.
I always thought your
Dad was the problem,
but maybe it's you.
Maybe it's you who
doesn't want to help us.
He thought you were a bum.
A worthless bum.
When I married you he said that we
would never survive without him
and I told him that we would
never touch his money.
So, when the kids are old
enough to decide for themselves
what they want to do with it,
I'll tell them who he was and
where the money came from,
but until then I
will not touch it.
I have to go.
Do you need me to call
someone or will you be okay?
I'll be fine.
Okay. Call me if
you need anything.
Hey, it's done.
[door opens and closes]
[glass breaks]
[startled gasp]
What are you doing?
I didn't want to wake you.
I was just going to
give you a kiss.
How are you feeling?
Not good.
What's wrong?
My leg hurts.
Could you get me some
pills from my purse.
Let me go get you
some more juice.
Just water.
I spilled the juice. I'm sorry.
How was your day?
[cell ringing]
Work stuff.
[cell ringing]
I have to take this. Sorry.
I can't talk right now.
I know. I need a couple
more days, that's it.
Okay, we'll talk then, bye.
Who was that?
Something from work.
Why didn't you take it in here?
I didn't want to bother you.
I know you're seeing
someone else.
I don't know what
you're talking about.
You come home late
from work every night,
we never talk, you never
want to sleep with me.
Just tell me, who is it?
Who is what?
The person you're sleeping with.
What are you talking about?
You're being paranoid.
I'm not an idiot, Phil.
I know you.
This is ridiculous.
Is it one of my friends?
If you're not happy
in our relationship,
then we should work it out.
Just talk to me.
There's nothing to talk about.
Why can't you just admit it?
I'm not talking about this.
I'm not!
Do you love her?
Do you love her?
Where are you going?
Come back!
You didn't have to sleep
upstairs, you know.
I'm sorry. Drink your juice.
I really think we
should see a therapist.
Fine. We'll see
whoever you want,
but you heard what
the doctor said,
you need to drink your
fluids to get better.
Good. A little more.
We need to talk.
Why don't you love me anymore?
Of course I do.
Where are you going?
To the gym. I'll shower there.
I'm sorry.
For what?
I'm trying to make
things better.
What did I do that was so wrong
that we can't even
talk about it?
I'm not the kids from school who
tortured you. I'm your wife.
I love you.
I know you do.
Yes, I just got home and found
my wife passed out on the floor.
No! I don't know what
happened to her.
I got here and she was
just on the floor.
[classical music]
Doctor: It's a miracle
she's still alive.
Her kidneys are
severely damaged.
Do you know why?
We're still trying
to figure that out.
But in the meantime we're going to have
to put her on dialysis twice a week.
Here's a pamphlet with
more information.
She's gonna need lots of fluid
and no drugs or alcohol.
Thank you, doctor.
So, I'll be back later.
I left you some food in the
fridge and look what came today.
It's Lulu's ashes.
I'll buy you a nice
vase to put them in.
Hey, neighbor.
Don't "hey neighbor" me.
You lied to me.
First you said she
was as good as dead
and then you said she was on
board and none of that is true.
I'm sorry. Okay?
Things they got a little more
complicated than I anticipated
but we can still figure it out.
No, I already figured it out.
We're going to renegotiate.
-What do you mean? -I want half.
If you think I am giving you five
million dollars, you're crazy.
I already started
moving money around.
I'm in too deep.
I gotta start over
somewhere else
and that is the price you're
gonna have to pay for it.
You can't do this to me, Monica!
We had a deal.
If you don't like it,
we can both go down,
but I'm not giving up my entire
life for a miserable 500k
while you're living the
big life in Buenos Aires.
I have a better idea.
How about, we start
over together, huh?
I found this house
in the mountains...
I'm sure you'll love it.
You're barking up the
wrong tree, neighbor.
The only thing I care
about is the money.
The cash will be available
in three weeks.
[Jack] Hi, Gloria. How
can I help you today?
Yes, I was just wondering
if you had an idea
of what may have caused
Lulu's kidney failure?
To have suffered such
a severe reaction,
she has to have ingested
something really poisonous.
It can be a whole
bunch of stuff.
Toxic plants,
pesticides, antifreeze.
I'm sorry. Did you
say antifreeze?
Yes, although it
would have to be
an old bottle or something
that was specially ordered.
They put a special
bitterant in it,
like nail polish, so dogs
won't be drawn to it.
I see.
You should take a look around,
see what she could have eaten.
I will. Thank you.
No problem.
I hope you feel better.
Say hi to Phil for me.
Oh. Thank you. Bye.
[The Barber of Seville overture]
[music continues]
Honey, I'm home.
Hey, honey, how are you feeling?
You know, I really
missed you today.
I brought you more juice
in case you get thirsty.
Sleep tight, baby.
You're up early.
I'll stop by later to take you
to your dialysis appointment.
Don't worry about it.
I'll go by myself.
Are you sure?
As you wish.
Oh! Here.
Thank you.
[door opens and closes]
[Overture continues]
-Oh, Gloria. -Hi, Doctor.
How are you feeling?
I'm feeling great. How are you?
Me? I'm amazed.
Your numbers are great,
your leg is much better,
I don't know how you did it.
You're almost as good as new.
-Thank you. -What's your secret?
I just needed some motivation.
Gloria: Hey, Scarlett.
Gloria! What a surprise.
Are we still on for tonight?
Are you... you're coming?
Of course, it's
Thursday isn't it?
Well, yeah!
I just wasn't sure if you
were still my friend.
Why not?
Who knows? How are
Phil and the kids?
The kids are in camp until
Saturday and Phil is working.
That's a new one.
Are you gonna bring the wine?
Of course.
See you later then, honey.
Phil: Gloria, are you home?
Oh! Hi, honey.
I was just thinking about you.
What are you doing here?
What do you mean?
You told me you were going
to meet with the girls.
Oh! Yes, I was just
running a little behind.
How did it go with the doctor?
What did he say?
He is saying that I'm doing much better.
Isn't that great.
-Yeah. It's great. -Yeah.
Do you want me to get
you something to drink?
No, I'm going to take
a shower actually.
Phil: Did he figure out
what the problem was?
The doctor.
Did he figure out why your
kidneys were failing?
No. He has no idea.
I may be home a
little late tonight.
Maybe we can have supper then.
Phil: Yeah, of course.
I love you.
[indistinct chatter]
-Oh, my God! -Oh, my god!
Are you okay? Are you hurt?
The blood's not
mine, It's Phil's.
He's dead.
-What? How? -What?
I killed him.
-What? -No.
Can I come in? Can
I take a shower?
I need to rinse off.
Come in! Yes, of course.
Come on in.
Oh, my god.
Don't tell me you're
going to drink that.
It's wine isn't it?
It also has blood on it.
We have to call the police.
We have to wait to see
what happened first.
You know what happened.
She killed him!
Gloria's no killer.
If she canceled Phil's
birth certificate
she had a damn good
reason for it.
What? You're not going
to say anything?
What can I say?
I'm still in shock.
It won't make a difference if we call
the police now or wait a few minutes.
What if Phil isn't dead?
What if he's bleeding
out somewhere?
What if we can still save him.
Yeah, maybe we'll save him,
but what about Gloria?
And what about us?
Aren't you worried about us?
We can all go to
jail too, you know.
Come on, Monica, you're the lawyer here.
Say something.
I'm afraid Kim's right.
No matter what Gloria says,
we have to report her.
If we don't, it's not only
immoral, it's also illegal.
I put on your dress. I
hope you don't mind.
No. Of course not.
How are you holding up?
I need to get rid of this.
I think we need to talk first.
We need to understand
what happened.
She'll talk when she's ready.
Come on, honey, I know
the prefect place.
I'm with Monica.
We want to know what happened.
I killed him out
of self-defense.
How is that possible?
He tried to murder me.
Why would he do that?
-Well, ask Monica. -What?
How should I know?
You're a divorce lawyer.
How else would Phil have control
of my money, unless I'm dead?
Yes, I guess that's right.
Well, she told you want
you wanted to know.
I hope you're happy.
He tried to poison me.
And I confronted him and
then he attacked me.
And I had to shoot him.
Are you sure he's dead?
The bullet went through
his right eye and out...
the top of his head so
yeah, I'm pretty sure.
I'm sorry. I need to
go to the bathroom.
What are we going to do?
I need your help.
He didn't leave work
until five thirty,
I need you to say that
I was here at five,
like every Thursday.
Gloria, the wife is
always the prime suspect.
They'll interrogate you,
they'll find inconsistencies
in your story,
they'll look for gun
residue on your hands,
this is what they
do for a living.
I'm begging you.
Please back me up on this.
I had no choice.
It was either him or me.
You have to turn yourself in.
I'll help you, we'll
plead self-defense,
temporary insanity, whatever,
but you don't want the police
digging into your business.
-Trust me. -I can't.
We'll take care of the kids.
They'll understand. Right?
I can't turn myself in.
Now if you want to do
it, I can't stop you.
I just don't understand why
he'd want to kill you.
I think he wanted to take my
money and leave with someone.
With who?
One of you.
One of us?
Are you crazy? We're
your friends.
Are you?
What are you saying?
I'm gonna go check on Kim.
Make sure she's okay.
Listen to me.
You're wrong about Scarlett.
I'm her lawyer, I know
everything about her,
and I can guarantee you
she wasn't screwing Phil.
I know that.
Well, I know you
don't think I was.
I don't.
[classical music]
What are you doing here?
I needed to see you.
You're crazy. You gotta go.
If you don't leave, I will.
[classical music continues]
Stay away from me.
What' s the matter?
People can see us, you know.
Who cares?
Let them see.
You told me you'd divorce her.
We would go away together.
It's not that simple.
I can lose everything.
Then go back to Gloria.
I'm working on a plan.
Hey. I just need time.
I already talked to Monica.
You told Monica about us?
No, relax, I didn't
tell her about us.
I just told her I
wanted to leave Gloria.
-She doesn't know the details.
-Damn it, Phil.
I mean, you couldn't
find another lawyer?
Not better than her.
Besides, this way
Gloria can't hire her.
Two birds, one stone.
You are one cold hearted son
of a bitch, you know that?
I'm not the one sleeping
with my friend's husband.
So what's the plan?
I'm working on getting
some money together
so we can start a life.
Gloria's money.
Who cares? It'll be
ours soon enough.
I don't believe you.
You're just trying to gain time
so I'll be your
mistress forever.
You gotta make a
choice, me or her.
I've already decided.
One month.
That's all I need.
But how?
The flight leaves on a
Thursday at midnight.
So you go to your little
regular girls get together,
and while you're there,
I'll go to my house,
I'll pack up my things, the
kids will be at camp so...
there won't be a problem.
As soon as you're
done gossiping,
you'll drive to the
airport and meet me.
Gloria: Phil?
Gloria: Phil?
Soon, baby. Soon.
Scarlett: Kim.
Kim, are you okay?
Kim? What are you doing?
I'm gonna stab that bitch.
What are you talking about?
She's lying, can't you see?
She figured out that
he's leaving her
and she murdered him.
She did all of this on
purpose, she's punishing us.
Put the knife down. For god's
sake you're scaring me.
I'm going to stab that
bitch in the heart.
Stop it! Put down
the knife down!
I don't need another
dead body in my house.
What's the game plan, huh?
I don't know.
It's over. Let it go.
-What are you doing?
-I'm calling the cops.
-No, you're not.
-You can't stop me.
Hello, I'd like to report a...
Phil was not the man
that you thought he was.
And you're not the first person
he's screwed around with.
We weren't screwing around.
He's slept with everyone.
You're wrong.
What? Are you going to tell
me you two were in love?
That man didn't
even love his mama.
He didn't care if he hurt you.
He didn't care if
he lived or died.
The only thing that man
cared about was himself.
Oh, keep going. I
want to hear it too.
I saw you two at the party.
I was looking for Phil and
I saw you behind the tree.
I called out his name.
It's not Kim's fault.
Of course not.
It's all of you.
Because any of you could have
stopped it but you didn't.
You can't blame all of
us for your problems.
Of course I can.
Because you are all
heartless little people
who think that money, and power,
and beauty are all that matter.
You know, Gloria,
I am so sorry we cannot
be all as good as you.
Oh, I'm sorry I ruined
your trip to Buenos Aires.
Scarlett: No! Stop!
Stop! No!
Gloria! What are you doing?
-Gloria! -Oh, my god!
[all screaming]
Oh, my god!
Hand me a towel! We need
to stop the bleeding.
Oh, Kim!
Don't just stand there,
call an ambulance!
Hold on.
Hold on, okay?
We're calling for
help now, okay?
Someone has been
shot at my house.
We need an ambulance!
Thank you. They're on their way.
I think she's dead.
You must be real
proud of yourself.
Getting rid of your husband and
his mistress in just one night.
The night's not over yet.
What are you going to do?
Kill us all?
Should I?
How do you know I won't
tell them everything?
Just one word from Scarlett
and me and you're done.
Maybe you should.
But then you'd lose that
suitcase full of cash
that you have hidden in
the trunk of your car.
And that's when Kim lunged
at her with the knife
and Gloria pulled out the gun.
Can I get you anything,
Detective Brown?
No, thank you.
Why did Kim attack Gloria?
I'm just not sure.
How about something to eat?
I have some cheese and
crackers in the kitchen.
Thank you, Scarlett,
but I really need to get
done with this interview.
Of course.
Detective Brown: I just need you to
explain what you mean when you say
you're not sure why
Kim attacked Gloria?
Did she all of a sudden just pull
a knife on her with no reason?
Gloria said something about a
trip and Kim just snapped.
Maybe Gloria or Monica
can be more helpful,
but that's all I've got.
Does Gloria always carry a gun?
I don't know.
Is the Chief treating you well?
The Chief treats me fine ma'am.
We're good friends,
the Chief and I.
I hosted the fund raising dinner
for his campaign last year.
Yeah, yeah, I know.
Is there anything else that..
you can tell me?
Anything else that might help
explain what happened here tonight?
You know, your son
looks just like you.
You know my son, too?
Yeah, he works at the
pharmacy I go to.
They're ready for you.
Don't you dare say a word.
Can you please walk me through the night.
What happened?
Oh, we met here like
we do every Thursday.
We had some wine, talked...
Talked about what?
You know, nothing
important, just gossip.
How about Gloria.
Did she talk about anything?
Monica: I don't remember.
Detective Brown: You're
a lawyer, correct?
Monica: Yes, that's correct.
You know what will
happen if you lie to me.
Yes, I am aware of
the consequences.
Why did Kim attack
Gloria with a knife?
I suppose Gloria gave her
some upsetting news.
I don't know the
details, Detective.
Do you think Gloria acted in
self-defense when she shot Kim?
Monica: Yes.
Are you alright?
Ah, yes. I'm fine.
Where do you live?
Cherokee Hills.
That's quite a drive from here.
Are you sure you can make it?
Yes, I'm sure.
Let's go.
Where to?
I need to take you down to the
station for some more questions.
I don't think that's really
necessary is it, Detective?
It's been a long night and
Gloria is not going anywhere.
I'm sure she can give you
everything you need tomorrow
after she's had some rest.
I'm just doing my job, ma'am.
And we appreciate that, but I
think you got what you need.
Please don't make me contact
the Chief at this hour
about those Oxy prescriptions
your son's been peddling.
Un-cuff her.
You're free to go,
but don't leave town before
the investigation is over.
Do you understand?
I understand.
[detective on phone]
I have something to tell you.
What is it?
You want to tell me something?
Um... I must have forgotten.
Call me if you remember. Here's my card.
Give me a call anytime.
-You drive home safe. -Yeah.
I just got off the
phone with the Chief,
everything is fine.
-Okay. -What now?
I don't know. Start
over I suppose.
Why don't you just stay here.
I have plenty of space.
No. I want to go home.
What about Phil's body?
I'll figure something out.
You know, you never told us
how he tried to kill you.
He was putting
antifreeze in my drink.
Goodnight. Thanks.
[cell phone ringing]
Monica, it's me.
How much wine did
you have tonight?
I don't know. A lot.
Pull over.
What's wrong?
It's poisoned. Pull over!
I'd like to report
an attempted murder.
My husband.
He tried poisoning me.
He's boarding a flight
to Buenos Aires tonight.
[The Barber of Seville overture]
Oh, my god!
[overture continues]
FBI agent: Phillip Clark.
FBI. Come with us, sir.
[overture continues]
Oh, if it weren't for
these three women
and our sacred Thursday
afternoon get-togethers,
I can assure you, I would
not be here today.
So, Monica...
and Gloria...
Please join me on stage as we
raise our glasses together.
Phil, take one with the phone.
[overture continues]
No! Hang on! Hang on!
[overture continues]
Troy: I love that bitch.
Gloria: Troy, just
give me the gun.
Scarlett: No! Don't! [gunshot]
[overture ends]
