Shelter in Place (2021) Movie Script

[somber music]
There is no way they shut
down the airlines for some flu.
Yeah, babe, I told you.
I'm gonna be on the
plane at nine AM.
I'll be home by seven.
No, you have nothing to worry
about. I'm not even drinking.
Like we talked about.
You know what? Work is calling.
Let me call you back.
[Maid] Do you
need a fresh towel?
Yeah, is that all I can get?
[maid chuckles]
[Maid] Can I take this one?
How about a drink?
[maid chuckles]
[footsteps approach]
[Man] Mr. Caustin,
can I get you anything?
Uh, yeah.
I'll take a whisky.
And one of those?
[Man] One whisky coming up.

["Handsome Man"]
Oh, so handsome
Gentle and sweet,
knocks me off of my feet
Every time I see him
Handsome man
I don't even know his name
I don't know where he lives
But he's still to blame
For all the misery he gives
Because he's handsome
Oh, so handsome
Gentle and sweet,
knocks me off of my feet
Every time I see him
Handsome man
Handsome man
Who, who, who
Who can he be
Oh, he's just right
Just right for me
'Cause he's a handsome
Handsome man
Handsome man
[Caustin gasps]
[Anchor] From New York
we go to California now,
the nation's most
populous state.
It is a strange
Saturday, indeed.
[Female Anchor] Half the
state's population, 22 million,
could become infected
with coronavirus
within the next eight weeks.
[Male Anchor] The Golden
State is in shutdown mode.
[Female Anchor] Normally
bustling retail areas
look like ghost
towns as Californians
spend their first weekend on
social distancing lockdown.
The impact of people
staying at home
is being felt in Hollywood.
[Politician] We need
to flatten the curve
in the state of California.
[footsteps clack]
Another day in paradise.
You know, I think my
roots are gonna be dark
by the end of the week.
That is, if they're
not already gray
from all the stir-craziness.
Life inside is for
hermits, not for me.
Not for us.
But then I started thinking
about all the first responders
and the medical people
and what they would give
to be in my shoes right now, so,
I know I've said it 100 times
before but I'll say it again.
Being grateful is everything.
I'm thankful for my husband.
I'm thankful for this place.
And of course, all of you guys.
[somber music]
And all of you guys.
And all of you. [chuckles]
You guys.
Just another day in paradise.
You know, I think my roots will
be dark by the end of the...
[water splashes]
[peaceful acoustic music]
Oh, Ty!
- Impressive swim.
- Thank you.
You know what was
impressive? That margarita.
[Ty] Why, thank
you. Fresh lime juice.
Yeah? Like I said,
makes a big difference.
You were right.
Can I get you another drink?
We are great, thank you.
I just gotta fix
this quarantine hair.
It's getting out of control.
I do not have that problem.
Oh, thank you.
You're welcome.
Does she not like us?
No, no. She just
keeps to herself.
- It's not just me, right?
- No, no, it's...
- Hey, baby.
- Hey.
I'm tired.
Oh, you're tired? You
wanna lay in the sun?
No, I don't.
[groans] I'm just stressed.
Yeah, I know. I can feel it.
[Sara] I'm serious, John. How
long are we gonna stay here?
I don't know. Until it's over?
I can't fly with the corons.
There's no flights anywhere.
They're telling
everyone to stay put,
[cash register dings]
and I don't know what else...
What is that sound?
That's momma getting paid.
Oh, when's daddy get his cut?
Maybe daddy'll get a tip
'cause this has been pretty good.
- It is pretty good, right?
- Yeah.
You should quit your day job.
[both laugh]
- Do you like that?
- I love that joke.
[Sara laughs]
- What time is it?
- I don't know.
Do you have somewhere
you have to be?
No, I just forgot
to take my pills.
Mind getting them for me?
They're just over there.
The service here is great.
Take your happy pills.
[Sara] I've been meaning
to get off of these anyway.
[Sara] This
pandemic is so weird.
All these empty
hallways, the red lights.
It gives me the creeps.
Just a tiny staff and
us in this huge place?
I mean, how are we
gonna pay for all of it?
[Sara] That's not the answer.
Just relax.
We have moved on to the
aromatherapy portion of the massage.
[Sara] That's hand sanitizer.
[Sara chuckles]
Well, now it's back sanitizer.
- Okay.
- Mm-hm!
[Sara chuckles]
[footsteps clack]
[eerie music]
[door chirps]
[brooding music]
[peaceful acoustic music]
- Doesn't have any words yet.
- It doesn't have any?
[John] Oh, wine.
Right on time.
- Thank you, sir.
- Absolutely.
I present to you
this bottle of wine,
from the lower rack
of the last available
- closet in the kitchen.
- My favorite!
How did you know?
I just, you know,
I took a gamble.
Did you organize all of this?
- I had some help from Ty.
- It's my favorite.
I know.
- It smells like France.
- Yeah, like the sand, right?
Yeah. [chuckles]
[glasses clink]
I love you.
- Do you now, Mr. Burke?
- Yes, I do, Mrs. Burke.
I love you too.
[lights thud]
[John] What? No.
[Sara] Wait, it's
10 o'clock already?
[John] Yeah, I guess.
- Okay, well...
- Okay.
[both clear their throats]
Here's to the
strangest honeymoon ever.
To the best honeymoon ever.
- That's I meant.
- Yeah.
[glasses clink]
[Sara chuckles]
Mm! Speaking of strangest.
This room is where they had
the 1929 Academy Awards.
The very first Academy Awards.
And you know how
they got everyone
to leave at the
end of the night?
- No? Tell me.
- It's very strange.
- They turn off all the lights.
- Okay?
And then this big
red scary light came on
and then everyone just
very quietly filed out.
- You're so full of shit.
- It's true!
- No.
- They were all wearing masks.
- Not pandemic masks, like-
- No, of course not.
Horny, horny masks.
Yeah, what else
were they wearing?
1929 shit.
- But not for long.
- No.
Before they just started...
[Sara chuckles]
[peaceful electronic music]
[eerie music]
[cutlery clinks]
Oh, my god, John.
Somebody just offered me $600
to take photos of my feet.
Do you think I should do it?
Yeah. Yeah, do it.
- Yeah?
- Yeah!
But send pictures of my feet.
- Those beauties.
- Eww.
Come on, look at those babies.
[door chirps and opens]
Thank you, great.
[footsteps recede]
[door closes]
[Sara sighs]
[Sara sighs]
- Same?
- [chuckles] Yes.
- Lucky us.
- I don't wanna eat it.
- I know.
- Don't make me eat it.
[John] I won't make you eat it.
Do you think the
vending machine on five
still has food in it?
Well, if it does, it
won't for very long.
- Bye!
- Bye.
[coins clink]
[machine clunks]
[muffled clunks and moans]
[suspenseful music]
[door creaks]
Are you lost?
[Sara] I'm sorry,
I, um... I'm sorry.
[ominous music]
[door creaks]
[bell dings]
[pen clicks]
[chair squeaks]
[suspenseful music]
[Ty] Should you be doing that?
[chair squeaks]
I'm sorry. [chuckles]
I was looking for celebrities.
Did you find any?
Charlie Sheen?
- He counts!
- Yeah, right!
Yeah, yeah!
[both chuckle]
Don't worry about it. 12 days
will make anybody stir-crazy.
- Is that it?
- 12 days, yeah.
It feels like it's been forever.
Mm. Tell me about it.
Hey, Ty. I thought that we
were the only people here?
Oh, we are. Look, I
just wear a lot of hats.
So I've let a few things slip
through the cracks, but uh,
- I'm gonna go fix that now.
- Okay.
[footsteps recede]
[dark music]
[door chirps]
[door closes]
- Hi.
- Hi.
- Is it okay if I clean now?
- Yes, sure.
- Do you need me to leave?
- No, no, you're fine.
Okay, thanks.
Will you tell me
your name again?
- Uh, it's Adela.
- Adela, right.
Where are you from?
[Adela] Poland.
Got it.
[Adela] Um, maybe I should
clean the upstairs first.
You know, I've never been to
Poland. What town are you from?
So this building is from 1927
and Ty said that this
ceiling is original.
Do you think they ever clean it?
I don't know.
It's probably pretty dusty.
Have you been cooking the food?
- Yeah, is it good?
- It's, yeah, good.
- Thank you.
- Oh, that's my mustache comb.
Sara likes the warm.
I don't like...
You get it.
Sometimes food gets
caught in the mustache
and you can get it out this way.
It's also just kind of calming.
[peaceful acoustic music]
[Adela] Did you write this?
Uh, I'm just noodling.
Is there a word in
Polish for noodling?
[Adela] Um, yeah.
It's [speaks Polish].
It's... [stammers]
[both speak Polish]
[speaks Polish]
- Oh, I'm not done with that.
- Oh, I'm so sorry.
That's okay. It's okay.
[speaks Polish]
[peaceful acoustic music]
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
- See you later.
- See ya.

[phone bleeps and rings]
- Housekeeping.
- Hello.
I was wondering if I
could have a broom.
Great, thank you.
[phone clacks]
[glass clinks]
[door thuds]
Damn, that was fast.
I'm so sorry. I'm such a klutz.
[ominous music]
Um, so...
Is your family still in Poland?
[Adela] No.
Do you miss it?
There's nothing for me there.
- John.
- How are ya?
Not too bad.
[John] Ty... What
is Ty short for?
Ty is short for Ty.
[John] Got it.
You know I could've
brought this to you, right?
Yes, but I wanted to have the
bartender-patron experience.
Across the bar, I tell you
all my troubles and, uh,
and you listen. [chuckles]
I miss that.
Well, here you go.
[glass clinks]
- Okay. [laughs]
- I'm sorry, man.
I did not know that
was gonna happen.
Ah, thought you wanted
the full bar experience.
Uh, yeah! Sorry
about that, I, uh...
I haven't been to
the Old West lately.
[Ty chuckles]
You know, man, actually,
that was our last beer, too,
but I can give you
a bourbon or...
Bourbon on the rocks.
That's what I want anyway.
[Ty] All right.
You know, I bet this bar is
just usually so well polished,
though, that you
could actually just
perfectly execute the slide.
Well, you know, you gotta
do the best with what you got.
[John] That's right.
Cheers, sir, thank you.
Yeah, you're
welcome. Cheers, sir.
My wife is upstairs
having one of her 45-minute,
90-minute showers.
Right, right.
Well, you know, time doesn't
seem to matter anymore, so,
might as well make
the best of it.
That's true.
Nobody's doing
anything right now.
Nobody's got a job.
I don't have a job
to get back to, so...
What were you doing
before all this?
Just kinda moving money around
from one place to the other.
Very boring. Very
boring to talk about.
You would be bored if I
tried explaining it to you.
Well, I mean, come on.
Got all the time in the world.
I'm a pretty bright guy.
Oh, you're definitely
bright. I just...
You know what, I would be bored,
if tried explaining
it to you, I think.
But you know, it
was time to move on.
[Ty] Hm.
You know what it's like.
Well, actually, I've
been here for 15 years.
- You've been here 15 years?
- Yeah.
Congrats, nice
work. Good for you.
Thanks, man.
I have never been
anywhere 15 years.
I get restless, Ty.
- Oh.
- You know?
Well, you know, if you
put a little hard work in
and some dedication, you
might find it fulfilling.
That's not, it's... I work
hard, I have discipline.
It's just I, uh... I just
get restless, that's all.
Yeah, well, I started as
a bellman but now I'm a-
- [John] A bartender.
Yeah, I know, that's great.
The General Manager.
[John chuckles]
And I worked hard to get here.
Thank you for the drink, Ty.
[glass slides]
That's not that hard.
[pins clatter]
Oh! [grunts]
Did you see that?
- Mm-hm.
- You didn't see it?
- Okay, so it was a strike.
- I saw it.
- It was a strike.
- Well done.
- Okay.
- It was a strike, you know.
- Oh! Hold on.
- Most people, you know-
- Hello?
- Watch the person that's-
- Hi! No, it's so
nice to hear from you.
When they're having
a game with them.
- They tend to watch them.
- Of course.
No, that's amazing.
Um, why don't you just
send me the details,
and I'll have a
look through them?
Thank you so much.
So you're not playing
anymore, so this is my ball now.
- Guess what!
- What!
That was Bellingham.
- Who's he?
- Bellingham Industries.
Bellingham Industries?
You mean like the
hand drier people?
They do lots of other stuff.
[John] Oh, okay.
They do toasters,
coffee machines.
You love their coffee machines.
Do the toasters blow
air back up in your face
when you're trying
to dry your bread?
This is a big deal for
me. Can you just be happy?
I am so happy for you.
You're getting 500 bucks to
take a picture of a toaster.
I think it's great.
Oh, it's like a $20,000 picture.
Wait, what?
What's that?
They're gonna give me $20,000.
For one picture?
I'm a big deal! Why are
you surprised by this?
People like me, John.
I know they like
you. I like you too.
That's great, um,
that's awesome.
Well, I'm glad to hear it.
[cash register dings]
[pins clatter]
So what'd you get?
[metal creaks and clangs]
Come on!
Did you break the machine?
No, I didn't break the machine.
But I will fix the machine.
- I'm telling Ty.
- Don't tell Ty.
Dear Ty.
You don't hae Ty's
number, you're full of shit!
[motor rattles and hums]
[pins clatter]
[motor rattles and hums]
[switch clicks]
It's vintage.
It breaks down all the time.
[peaceful electronic music]
[Sara laughs]
- No, no!
- Four minutes straight.
You would die if that happened!
[John] It happened.
It wasn't me it happened
to, it happened to some-
- Oh, sure. A friend of yours.
[John] Who looked a lot like me.
- [chuckles] That's disgusting.
- Sorry.
It happened.
[suspenseful music]
Are you okay?
Hey, hey, hey.
Let's count down from 10.
Come on, 10.
[pants] I...
[John] Seven.
I'm here.
- And three.
- Three.
- Two.
- Two.
[John] Breathe.
And one.
[John] Okay?
I'm fine, I'm fine, I'm fine.
[John] Did you
take your meds today
or do you have any left?
I don't...
I don't wanna take them anymore.
You have to take them.
[dark music]
Hey, you have to-
- Fuck off!
[John] We don't know
how this is all gonna end,
but I'm here for you, okay?
I'm here for you right now.
That counts for
something, right?
What's out there is scarier
than what's in here.
Just take a deep breath.
We're gonna be out of
here before we know it.
[eerie music]
[phone rings]
[music swells and intensifies]
[feet stamp]
[door squeaks]
Hey, sleepy head.
Starting with squats?
Actually, I'm almost done.
What do you mean?
I mean I'm finished. Sorry.
I thought you wanted...
Weren't we gonna do this together?
I figured you didn't want to.
- Well, tomorrow!
- Yep.
[Sara sighs]
[brooding music]
[pins clatter]
[distant blues rock music]
[pins clatter]
[chuckles] All right.

[ice rattles]
[ice clatters]
Ice machine's broken.
[Ty sighs]
[Ty sighs]
Oh, hi.
[Sara] Hey.
Look what I got.
Productive day.
It was, really.
Actually, very.
- Do you want one?
- An apple?
[John] A drink.
Um, no, I'm good.
It's a little early for
me, but you go for it.
Oh, I did.
[Sara] I know.
[John] Don't sulk!
I'm not sulking.
[John hums jauntily]
[John hums jauntily]
[John laughs]
- Hey, John.
- Hm?
Do you think that
sometime soon you're gonna,
I don't know, start looking
for a job or something?
Hm. Well, I was thinking
about that today, actually.
- Yeah?
- Yeah.
Came to mind.
What do you mean?
No one's working. There's
no jobs to be had anyway, so-
- That's not true, John.
People are working.
I'm working. I work every day.
Well, I mean, you post online,
and then you get an
income from that.
That's a different way from-
- Oh, right, because my
job isn't a real job.
I'm not saying it's not
working, it's different from
what you're talking about with
regards to my kind of work.
[Sara] Right because yours
is a real job and mine isn't.
I didn't say it was real.
No, you don't have to say
it. You're insinuating it.
No, look, it's not real.
My job is no more
real than yours.
My job takes a lot of work.
I have to build relationships,
I have strategies!
I have to look at analytics,
I have to, you know,
reach out to sponsors
and get package...
What isn't real
about that to you?
I'm not shitting on
it, I'm telling you...
This is gonna blow
your fuckin' mind.
Here's what I actually wanna do.
[Sara] Okay.
- Are you ready?
- Yeah!
Stand up for this.
I am gonna take a video
of myself playing guitar,
playing my songs, and I'm
gonna post that online
and we will be a
power-influencing couple.
Oh, okay, cool, so you're
just gonna play your guitar
and then when you get bored
of that and you leave me,
you're gonna do what, go travel?
But like, what's next, John?
Who fucking cares!
- I don't know.
- I care!
You have no motivation,
you have no ambition.
It's just like so
boring living with you!
You just wake up and just exist.
- I'm boring you?
- Yes!
Oh, I'm so sorry.
You've been in those sweatpants
for the last, what, three weeks?
You haven't shaved off
this fucking mustache!
What is your problem
with the mustache?
- I hate it!
- It's an homage!
To what?
It's stupid!
Here's the thing.
I don't understand
why you give a shit
what I do on a day-to-day
basis when you know
that you're gonna be taken
care of, no matter what.
That's my fucking job is taking
care of you, emotionally,
and digging you out of
your fuckin' sad hole
that you bury yourself
in and then you come out,
because I took care of
you that entire time,
and then you get to take
a video and pretend to be
little princess
fuckin' happy pants.
So you can lie to them and
fuckin' prostitute yourself
for like 600 bucks here
and 700 bucks here,
and pretend to be the
happy-go-lucky little
queen of fuckin'
curated narcissism!
But, uh, I know who you
really are. Yep, see?
You're the sad girl who goes
and stares out of windows.
Am I gonna have to dig you
out of your little hole now?
It looks familiar.
[sighs] I'm going to bed.
[tense music]
Isn't it a little
early for that?
[apple thuds]
[eerie music]
[ominous music]
- [phone rings]
- Housekeeping!
[music swells and intensifies]
[eerie music]
[intense music]
[dark music]
[Sara sighs]
Hey, guys. Happy
Gratitude Tuesday.
We've spent our day
here, of course,
at the pool and John, he's...
[muffled clattering]
What was that?
[suspenseful music]
[hatch squeaks]
[ominous music]
[Adela] Twice a day.
Three times if it's windy.
[sighs] It used to drive me mad!
I would scrub and
scrub and scrub.
But the dust would
always return.
Transported by
some sinister gale.
At what moment is it
that clean becomes dirty?
Nothing's ever really
dirty, if you think about it.
I mean, the clean
is still there,
it's just underneath it all.
The dirt just covers it.
People are the opposite.
People have the
dirt on the inside.
Try to cover it up
when they're clean.
Um, is this your room?
You think I sleep on the
floor? I'm not an animal.
No, sorry, I didn't
mean that. I just meant-
- No, no, no! I get it,
I'm the creepy maid.
I quietly roam the
halls, clean the sheets,
can't cook to save my life.
I know what you say about me.
But the reason why I'm here is
to make you feel like guests,
to take care of
you, to serve you,
and most importantly, to help
get you out of your sad hole.
- So just because I keep-
- What did you just say?
You heard me.
Have you been watching us?
Who's been watching who, Sara?
[eerie music]
[John groans]
[John sighs]
[John sighs]
[water splashes]
What the fuck?
Sorry, can I have that?
Okay, thanks.
So why are you sleeping here?
My wife is, uh, mad at me.
I've been kind of an asshole.
I should probably get dressed.
[dissonant guitar chord]
Hey, guys. Happy
Gratitude Tuesday.
We spent the day
here, of course,
and John, well, he's
been, um, he's been good!
He's been great,
we've been great.
This is the honeymoon from hell.
And I'm pretty much stuck here
because John's a piece of
shit and we won't let me leave
and now I'm talking to the
phone like [mumbles]...
Fuck this.
[static crackles]
[high-pitched ringing]
[somber music]
[nails scrape]
[John] 600 bucks
here and 700 bucks here
and pretend to be the
happy-go-lucky little
queen of fucking
curated narcissism!
Am I gonna have to dig you
out of your little hole now?
It looks familiar.
[ominous music]
[water splashes]
[Sara gasps]
Do you wanna talk about it?
It's okay.
I don't know what I was
trying to do there, Ty.
I'm really sorry.
[Ty] You don't
have to apologize.
Sometimes we all
need a little break.
A little while ago... [sighs]
Things weren't going
very well for me.
And, um...
John was really there for
me when nobody else was.
You know? He...
He helped me through a
really, really rough time.
And now I feel like
he's falling apart and,
and I don't know what to do.
And... [sighs]
Do you ever feel
like you could just
wish that you could
turn back time?
[Ty] Like a do-over?
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
All the time.
You know, my grandmother
used to say this thing to me.
"In this moment, you
have everything you need.
And life is just a
serious of moments.
You can't go back, you
can't stay where you are.
You have to just move forward."
- Can I tell you a secret?
- Of course.
- You can't judge me.
- No judgements here.
Sometimes I really
don't like John.
Can I tell you a secret?
[dark music]
Sometimes I don't
like him, either.
[both laugh]
[John sniffs]
[John chuckles]
That bed's really
uncomfortable. [chuckles]
Well, I guess you
could come back, then.
I'm sorry.
I missed you.
[John chuckles]
I missed you.
Did you get your workout in?
Did you wanna join me?
[Sara chuckles]
I don't want Adela
coming in here anymore.
[Sara] I saw her do
something really weird.
In the kitchen.
Why were you in the kitchen?
I was stealing food.
You were? Stealing food?
Well, it was your idea.
That was my idea
like a month ago.
[Sara] Well, anyway,
she was in the kitchen,
and she was staring
at the phone.
- And then the phone rang.
- Mm-hm.
And she answered it.
[chuckles] Okay? Right.
Doesn't sound that weird to me.
And then with her cart,
she just ran past me.
Like shot past me.
I mean, that just sounds
like none of our business?
[Sara] It was four
o'clock in the morning.
- It's really strange.
- Okay, it's...
Maybe she's really strange.
Look, if she doesn't
come in here,
how is this place
gonna get cleaned?
We could do it.
[John sighs]
I am not cleaning a
suite on my vacation.
This is not a vacation,
it's a pandemic!
All right, we're trying to
make the best of it, right?
Look, I think that
you have a tendency,
when you get restless or bored,
to create dramas and
adventures for yourself
and I think it would be
better if you just relaxed.
If you could just
enjoy yourself?
What can I do? How
can I help you?
John, why don't you just
stay here and do nothing,
because that's what
you're good at,
and I'll just see you later.
[John sighs]
Where are you goin'?
[Sara sighs]
To harass the staff.
[Ty] What did
you want to happen?
I mean, what did you
think was gonna happen?
I saw what was happenin'.
I know what you're doin'
and this has gone too far!
[Adela] You don't even know him.
What does it
matter if I know him?
[John] Whoa, whoa,
whoa. What's going on?
Look, John, there's
a lot you don't know,
and I don't have time
to explain it to you.
Okay, look, I'm sure
it's none of my business,
but maybe you should take
a minute and cool off.
- Are you okay?
- Yeah, I'm fine, thank you.
- Thank you so much.
- Okay.
I think I may have just
locked myself out of my room.
Oh. Well, I can
help you with that.

Okay, close. Close, close,

[elevator muzak]
Fucking come on!
Help me! Help me, please!
[pants and stammers]
- What's wrong?
- John's dead!
John's dead, he's
dead. He's dead!
What's going on?
Oh! Hey, hey, hey, hey.
Mr. Burke.
- What's the matter?
- I just... [pants]
What happened to you?
[John] I was napping.
What is she doing here?
- What are you doing here?
- I don't know.
I'm cleaning.
Oh, really? She's cleaning.
Uh, we need some
privacy, thanks.
Oh, yeah. Of course.
I'm glad you're okay.
[Sara sniffles]
Are you okay?
[Sara sobs]
[intense music]
Hey, guys, so we just wanted
to stop by and check on you.
Make sure you're okay
and offer you this,
compliments of the house.
Oh, thank you.
Um, well...
There's no way we're gonna
finish this all by ourselves, so-
- No, no. This is for you,
this is for you guys to enjoy.
- We really should be going.
- No, please.
[Sara] Okay.
Look, guys, I'm...
I'm really sorry about before.
You know, sometimes,
what my eyes see
and what my mind perceives
are two completely
different things.
[knife clacks]
I think that this time I
just let my imagination
run away with it,
so I'm really sorry.
It's okay.
Um, I'm gonna go get the wine.
[Ty chuckles]
Think we're all
under a lot of stress
for pretty obvious,
understandable reasons, but,
it's hard not to be when
you're reading the news.
[Ty] Thank you.
I was just reading
today about...
Haven't you heard about the
thing with the fingernails where
apparently fingernails
can just fall off?
That's a new symptom,
they could just snap
and they could fly
across the room.
Are you serious?
That and there was another
one, too. It was, um...
Just like extreme
annoyance with people
that you're living with,
that's another one. [chuckles]
[Ty chuckles]
Oh, that's funny.
That's a good joke.
No, it was a bad joke.
Well, no, no. It
was a good joke.
Tell me another.
I'm just kept away from my
family, but you got jokes.
Yeah, I'm sorry.
That was inconsiderate.
[Ty scoffs]
How is your family?
[Ty sighs]
[Ty splutters]
I'm sorry. How is my family?
[tense music]
Do you care how my family
is, really? Honestly, truly?
How is my family?
Oh, that's funny.
You know what? I'm
sorry, let's start again.
Hey, how is the cheese?
- It's good.
- It's good? Okay.
Sorry Ty, I was just trying
to make friendly conversation.
I know, I just
don't understand why,
'cause we're not
friends, you know?
We're not boys, we're not bros.
I'm working here,
in service of you.
I'm actually working here
trying to protect you,
but your head is
so far up your ass,
you don't even know
what old girl's up to.
But I was trying to
warn you, you see,
but now I'm just
the angry black man,
yelling in the hotel room!
Do you need any help over there?
Yeah, no, no. She
needs some help.
She need all the
help she can get.
Ain't that right?
You need major help.
You know what? I don't care.
Do whatever you want to.
Whatever you wanna do.
You wanna eat him? You
wanna bleed him like a pony?
Or whatever the fuck
you do in that room?
Go ahead, be my guest.
Look, I'm sorry, I just, I...
[sighs] I can't go to
jail, I have a family.
I have a wife.
I have responsibilities.
And now look at me.
Trying to protect you,
trying to save your ass.
Who's gonna protect me?
Who's gonna save me?
[tray clacks]
I think you should go now?
Oh, it's time to go?
You're ready to go now?
You're done with all of this?
Yeah, I think it's time to
go. We should go, let's go.
Come on, let's go.
Well, eat the fucking cheese!
[ominous music]
[Sara screams]
[rapid stabs]
- [Ty groans]
- Jesus Christ!
God damn it!
Ty, are you okay?
[Ty groans]
Here, put...
[Ty screams]
Sorry, sorry!
- Here, stay with him.
- Where are you going?
Call an ambulance,
I'm gonna go get her.
- And lock the door behind you.
- No, please don't leave me!
Lock the door.
I'm sorry.
[Ty pants]
No, no, no.
[tense music]
She's leading him down there.
She's gonna kill him.
You've gotta stop him.
The basement.
You gotta get your husband,
and you gotta get outta here.
I'm sorry.
[Ty breathes deeply]
[Ty] I'll be okay.
I needed the money, so
I played along, but now,
I realize I'm not in control.
Maybe I never was.
[Adela] Am I a bad person?
No, Adela, you're
not a bad person.
I think you just
need a little help.
You wanna come out?
[Adela] No, John. I
think you need help.
What do I need help with?
[Adela] Come to me.
Adela, where are you?
[Adela] John.
Why don't you stay?
Look, I'm not
gonna hurt you, okay?
No one's gonna hurt
you, we just wanna help.
[glass clinks]
Damn it!
[suspenseful music]
[music swells]
[man growls]

[Sara pants]
[tense music]
[dark music]
[Adela] All that
I have is yours.
Let your body rest
and slip away.
Become nothing so
your mind can travel.
I'll hear for you.
Your eyes go blank.
I'll see for you.
Your hands are almost there.
I'll grasp it for you.
I'll bleed for you.
[Sara] Why?
[Ty] She hates when
our guests check out.
[brooding orchestral music]
[fabric tears]
[flesh squelches]
[blood splatters]

There's nothing more noble
than dedicating your life
to serving another.
You are my guest now.
And I am here to serve you.
[door slams]
[suspenseful music]
Do you like it?
[Sara gasps]
I made it for you.
[eerie music]
[chain clinks]
He didn't resist me.
He needed me.
And so do you.
[chaotic tones]
[body clunks]
Do you like the way I cut you?

[John splutters]
Messy boy.
Eat up, sweetie.
[ominous music]
[John grunts]
Would you like to stay as well?
[music swells]
[man growls]
[Sara screams]
He was the perfect guest.
[Caustin snarls]
He grew to love me.
Just like John will.
[John splutters]
And just like you will.
[heavy knocks]
There is nothing else
you need to know.
[Sara] Help us!
[Adela] Quiet down.
[Sara] No.
[heavy knocks]
[door creaks]
[gun cocks]
Peekaboo, bitch.

Thank you.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry, I'm so sorry.
[John grunts]
Hey, hey.
I'm sorry.
[man growls]
[Sara screams]
[flesh crunches]
[Sara screams]
[Sara sobs]
You're okay, just focus on me.
[Sara] Ten, nine.
