Skating to New York (2013) Movie Script

You want to get hit
in the back of the head?
False shot!
Hey, any of you guys gone down
by the lake? Check out the ice yet?
Oh, yeah. It's gorgeous. Can hit
a slapshot all the way to New York, sir.
That'd be a hell of a shot.
- Yeah, it is 40 clicks to the other side.
- Yeah.
Okay, guys. Enough chitchat, all right?
Let's get focused for tonight's game.
We've got to break this losing streak.
They can't pull that crap in our barn.
Yeah, that's right. Come on, get up!
- Rudy, throw down the mitts!
- Come on, Rudy!
Hey, you want to go, boy? Want to go?
Yeah? Back off, pussy,
or I'll tear your goddamn head off!
Keep threatening it, then go.
- Are you kidding me?
- No, I'm not kidding you.
You want to bring that up right now?
You want me to...
You can't show these guys any weakness.
- You look shaky. Get your head in the game.
- No, I'm good.
- You're good?
- Yeah!
Look, we got these guys.
Just stay focused.
I'm good, okay? I'm good! Go! I'm good.
Come on, this is hockey,
not synchronized swimming!
Give it a rest, Mario.
Come on, you guys. Fists, not finesse.
Fists, not finesse.
Sit down. Watch your brother.
So sad, you know? I'll never be
half the man your mother is.
You just quit?
I don't even know when or why. I'm sure
that I probably had something to do with it,
but everything that we believed in,
everything that we put our hopes on,
you just quit on it.
You just talk.
You're down here at the rink,
like... you're, like,
one of these losers down here.
That's what you think of me? A loser?
Goddamn! Was that ugly or what?
- Ugly? That was haggard.
- Hey, a goal's a goal, man.
- Hey, catch my banner, bro?
- How much you pay for that?
I paid them with this.
Come on. We can take them.
Hey, we're up by one.
I always saw something better
for us, Jess.
And there was a time when you said that,
and I actually believed you.
You need to be home.
Casey needs his father.
Yeah. It's hard to keep down a kid
like that. At least we got that part right.
I got to go.
This one's on you, Jess.
And you know, it's pretty obvious
that you've had a few,
so I don't know, maybe you want
to stay sober, right?
'Cause your kid might actually
need you tonight.
This is what you want, right?
What's going on?
Shitty break, Case. You get a pad
on that, and we take them to O.T.
Winners don't wait for breaks.
They make them.
- Casey!
- Demas!
Casey! Casey, are you good?
- Casey?
- I'm fine.
- Good. Can you move?
- Yeah.
- All right.
- If I can stand up.
There you go.
I'm good.
Rudy, come here!
Are you going to let these guys just cruise
out of town, thinking they own this ice?
Did anyone think to call
an ambulance or something?
That's all right.
He just took a little knock.
That's a lot of blood for a knock,
don't you think?
Well, there's more blood vessels
in the head, so it tends to bleed more.
Now that's hockey.
I tell you, without skateboards and hockey,
I'd be put out of business.
- How's it look?
- It looks all right.
You are the best.
Thanks. Unfortunately,
tonight is my last rotation.
Dr. Pradeesh takes over tomorrow.
You're leaving? Is Timsbury
a little bit too exciting for you?
Well, as good as I am at sutures,
I actually trained in neurology.
And I've got an opportunity
to go join a practice in Syracuse.
In the States?
Casey? I came as fast as I could.
- Let me see. Are you okay?
- Be careful. Is Dad coming?
I don't know.
I don't know where your dad is.
What about concussions?
You hear all this stuff about concussions.
- He took a knock, but he checks out fine.
- Is it going to leave a scar?
No. In a couple of months,
you won't even see it.
- Casey, that is it for you for hockey.
- Mom...
No. Every time you get hurt,
it reminds me of when your dad played.
- You're good to go.
- Thank you.
Thanks, David. Get your stuff.
Let's go. There's a whole crowd
of people out there waiting for you.
- Hey! There he is.
- There's the stud. How you doing, buddy?
- You dizzy or what?
- I'm okay.
- You good?
- Stitches.
- Seven.
- Whatever. You look badass.
Yeah, it's pretty sexy.
Dissolvable sutures, doc?
Yup. They should absorb in a week or so.
- So, no internal stitches?
- What year of medical school are you in?
I think we'd all like to know.
See you, buddy.
Hey, Scarface? We're all headed down
to Pinheads. You want to come?
Not tonight, boys. Let's go.
- Bye, Mrs. D. Love you.
- "It's bedtime for Casey."
You sure you're okay?
Yeah, Mom, I'm fine.
- You feel dizzy or nauseous?
- No, I'm fine.
Casey, I need some time
to figure some things out.
Okay. I get it. Everyone needs
a time-out every once in a while.
I'll see you inside.
Can you pop the trunk?
I forgot my knapsack.
I need more than a time-out, Casey.
I need some time away.
I'm just going to be at Aunt Nita's.
Aunt Nita's in Cornwall.
That's an hour from here.
It's not an hour.
It's 20 minutes, 25 minutes.
Okay. I'll just go grab my bags.
No, no. That's not the way
this is going to be.
Honey, you are struggling at school.
That would be a big change.
I don't care about that. I can change.
It's not the end of the world.
I'm sleeping on Aunt Nita's couch as it is.
I'm going to call. I'm going to be around.
You're going to be around?
What does that mean?
Things have changed
between me and your dad.
No, they're exactly the same
they've been for the past year.
Sometimes, people just...
just need some freedom.
Freedom from what?
Not from you.
That's not what I'm saying.
Honey, I love you. I am always going
to be a part of your life. Always.
You're not even coming in, are you?
You're just going to leave it on me to tell him.
He knows.
Believe me, he knows.
Go. I'm happy you're leaving.
"Lidstrom on Casey Demas.
Lidstrom for the weak side. He shoots...
"Oh, great stick save by Demas!
And he covers up."
- Pretty far from the real story.
- Yeah, well, next time. Yeah.
Who was it that said,
"Goaltending is like being shot at"?
- Jacques Plante.
- That's right.
Just 'cause you're the goaltender
doesn't mean you're the only one on defense.
How many shots on goal tonight?
30, 35.
35. Nobody's good enough
to stop everything.
You guys got to get back. Keep them
from getting all those open shots on goal.
I got to get this...
All this work done or I'm going
to have hell to pay tomorrow.
I can help.
No. I want you to go inside,
take it easy.
Go ahead. Watch T.V.
You had a rough day.
Mom's gone.
She's just clearing her head.
Still up for going to Belleville?
Check out the ice dogs?
You still want to?
I do if you do.
Is she coming back?
I don't always know
what your mom is thinking.
Okay. What are we going to do about it?
What's the plan?
I don't know yet.
You guys fight all the time.
What happened?
I don't know.
- How are you going to fix it...
- Case! I'm not the one who quit on us.
You pretty much quit on everything else.
Hi, Casey.
One, two, three, stop!
Hey, guys.
So, you ask her if she wants
to ride your zamboni yet?
- Nice.
- She's new here, isn't she?
Yeah, her old man works
with my dad in the warehouse now.
She transferred, like, last month
or something. I don't know.
So, you get her phone number?
I hate to break it to you, bud,
but she's got peanut butter legs.
- What?
- Easy to spread.
- Oh, come on, man!
- What?
Aren't you supposed to be eating
broccoli and egg whites?
You've got that septic tank heart thing.
- They call it...
- Ventricular septal defect.
And I got arteries
like a garden hose, okay?
You're a garden hose.
Check out my M.R.I.'s
- Seriously?
- Here, here.
- See?
- Oh, he actually has it.
Yeah, this one shows the hole
between the chambers in the heart.
You're so weird. Why do you have that?
Rudy, you know all this, dude. He's only
told us about a thousand times before.
Do you know what happens
if the hole doesn't heal itself?
Sudden death!
- It's not as funny as you guys think.
- Man, you get that during the game?
Just forget about it. Soon as I'm done
with school, I'm gone.
You know what? Forget school.
You know why?
Because this guy's going to be playing in
the CHL, sooner or later, so who cares?
Yeah, I'm so sure that some scout's going to
come and scope out a bunch of plugs like us.
- All right, we're bouncing.
- You're putting the tab? Thanks, bro.
- Coming? Hurry up.
- Guys, wait up.
Well, you look better
than the last time I saw you.
- Hi.
- Laid out on the ice.
Yeah. Feeling better. Seven stitches.
So, do you guys
keep score on everything?
Can I have a cream soda, please?
Thank you.
So, I'm guessing with head injuries,
you've got to pay attention.
No dizziness, amnesia.
I wouldn't mind amnesia
every once in a while.
- And what are you trying to forget?
- You ask a lot of questions.
Okay, well...
Maybe you should take it easy. Sleep in.
I'm going to an ice dog skate
with my dad tomorrow morning.
Ice dogs are...?
- Don't know what juniors are.
- Hockey. Sports.
Well, I'm guessing you know
there are other things in life, right?
And you're Canadian.
I know you. You're Casey.
Okay. I know you, too.
- Page Broughton.
- Casey Demas.
- Does it hurt?
- Yeah, it hurts.
The Lidocaine is wearing off, I think.
Anyway, I should... I should...
Yeah, this was nice.
See you around?
- Yeah. Good.
- See ya.
Saw on the news last night...
They're thinking,
with all this cold weather,
lake's frozen solid all the way across.
First time since 1934.
What the hell happened
to global warming?
You know, this beauty of a town,
it's always the last to get anything.
This place sucks.
Nothing ever happens here.
They say they're pushing
the ice fishing nuts
further and further
in the lake this year, too.
We could get across the lake.
Is your old man going to let you
take out his precious little cat?
You dumbass. Not with a snowmobile.
- No, I say we skate it.
- Skate it?
The whole lake?
Come on, man. Get serious.
They may say "frozen,"
but not all the way through.
There's still warm currents
and hot spots.
- There's pressure ridges and gas holes.
- I think you're a gas hole.
Seriously, right? Is there anything
you're not an expert at?
Getting you to shut up?
Hey! Hey!
Look, all I'm saying is,
this shit can be unpredictable!
- Has anybody ever done that?
- Done what? Skate to New York?
Dude, nobody in this town does anything
except sit on their ass and watch T.V.
We could be the first.
That would be pretty amazing.
I bet we'd be all over YouTube.
Guinness book of records even.
Oh, man. That'd be baller steezy!
Seriously, though...
No one's going to want to come around
thousand islands crossing to come get us.
No one would have to come get us. I mean,
we could just go there and back, round-trip.
80 clicks?
Yeah. Let's just do it!
You know? Meet here tomorrow morning
at 6:30. Just go.
Hell, we'll pack our bag with extra layers,
and don't forget carbs and hydration.
- We're going to need the energy.
- Wait, so we're actually doing this?
- Yeah!
- Hell yeah, we are!
Why not? What are you guys
going to tell your parents though?
- Rudy, Dad will kill us.
- You've got to lie to them.
You can't tell them what we're going to do.
You know what they're going to say.
Nobody in my house
is going to care anyway. So...
You know what?
Why don't you just sit this one out?
- What do you mean, sit this one out?
- Yeah, Rudy, what's that all about?
All I'm saying is, if you want
to be part of this group,
then maybe you should've played
a little tougher in the net.
Come on, that's bullshit, man.
Get off his back, you monkey.
I'm just messing with him.
I'm messing with you, all right?
Just... maybe you should have
stopped that puck.
Go blow yourself, Bouchard.
Oh, come on. Come on.
It was just a joke. I was kidding!
I'm going to the ice dogs game
with my dad tomorrow anyway.
- Casey, he's just...
- Let him go. Let him go.
- Hey, he's just being Rudy.
- Art, get over here, come on. Let him go.
- Hey, Aunt Nita, it's Casey.
- Hi. It's nice to hear your voice.
- Sorry for calling so late.
- Oh, it's okay. Hey, how'd the game go?
We lost, but it was close.
Can I talk to my mom?
She's not here yet.
She's not? Is...
Did she say when she was going
to get there?
No, she didn't say.
Do you have a message for her?
No, no messages.
You okay, Casey?
You sound a little distant.
Yeah, I'm fine. I'm good.
Are you sure you don't want
to leave a message?
No, I just...
I just wanted to make sure
she got there okay.
Okay. Good night.
Love you.
Whose brilliant idea was this again?
Lace up so we can get moving.
We had to pick the coldest day
of my entire life to do this?
So go back to Timmies
and get a hot chocolate,
'cause I'm going, and you can read
all about me in tomorrow's papers.
Yeah, in the obituaries... maybe.
I was watching T.V. last night,
and they said that the lake shipping
is still bottled up in the seaway.
So we're not going to get hit
by some speeding, raging ore boat?
- Casey! Hey, man.
- Hey, what's up?
I see you showed up.
What are you doing here?
What do you think? I'm going.
Did I stutter last night?
I said you're not going.
- Come on, Rudy. Don't be such a dick.
- Yeah. Who died and made you king shit?
The last king shit.
Rudy, think about it this way. You know,
if we come across some rabid polar bears,
you can just throw Casey
in front of them.
That's a good point. I like that.
Are there... are there
actually polar bears?
It's a joke, you dumbass! Jesus!
No, there's no polar bears, but I heard
some intense stories about this lake.
Grandfather fished it for years.
Fished or smuggled booze?
We all know he didn't really spend
two years fishing in Florida.
Yeah, I don't think you're one
to talk about family, bro.
Okay. Are we going to skate?
Casey, what happened
to the ice dogs game?
Just another hockey game.
Okay, so here's the plan.
I think we should stay as a tight group.
One after the other,
about ten-yard separation, okay?
- Okay.
- We've really got to be a team out there.
Did everybody bring their extra food
and extra layers?
Everybody got their cell phones?
- Your cellphones?
- Check!
I hope you guys have all your shit because
there's nothing but ice out there, okay?
You guys ready to go? Let's do it!
Let's do it, boys! Let's go!
Let's get out there!
Believe this shit? It's like sex.
- Couch cushions don't count.
- I'll take what I can get.
Wingman to group leader,
target at 11:00.
Roger on that, Maverick.
Turning to one-niner. Weapons armed.
Oh, yeah.
Hollywood to goose, form up
on my six for low-level strafing pass.
- Roger that, Hollywood.
- Forming up on your six.
- Fire on all planes!
- Let's do it!
Go! Let's go! Come on! Come on! Come on!
Come on!
Hello, boys!
Hey, wait. Where are those guys going?
To trouble.
Okay, boys. Time to get serious.
We got a long way to go.
No, no, no. We're doing the whip.
We're doing the whip! We're doing the whip!
- Hurry up.
- All right.
- Slackjaw!
- Yeah, yeah, yeah!
He broke out of it, Rudy!
I got him! I got him!
I'm coming!
- What is that?
- Please, God, let it be a Timmies.
If you had an open line to God,
why would you go so small?
I mean, make it room at the Hilton with,
you know, a hot tub and some strippers.
- Where the hell's the rest of the truck?
- And the guy driving it.
Must have been swept off
in a storm or something.
Who cares? As long
as we get out of this wind.
Yeah. I'm freezing.
A long way from home.
This place is gross.
It's like my Uncle's bathroom.
Everybody look for something we can use.
Anything can help. Just look around.
We got some nice,
comfy cushions in here.
I'm not sitting down on those.
It's colder in here than it is outside.
Can you please close
the goddamn door? Thank you.
The frame is crooked.
This disaster don't look
too secure, guys.
Well, if you know of a better place,
I'm sure we'd all love to hear about it.
It's not like we planned to get cozy
by the fire, kick back and watch T.V.
Seriously, though, we all got to hydrate
and get some energy in us.
You know what? You do that, Jimmy,
and I'm going to eat some food
and maybe drink something.
All right. So, what do you guys got?
Cookies, granola bars, trail mix.
Here, you know what? Let's make a table.
Yeah, grab that.
No, get the big one, yeah.
Here you go.
Seriously? This is all you guys brought?
Remind me not to bring you guys
on my next trip.
Jolly Rancher, tangy meat-flavored.
Highly recommended. Want one?
Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa.
You're going to share that with me, right?
Seriously? You didn't bring a drink?
Dude, look. Come on.
You've got to be kidding me, guys!
I thought you said you'd be ready
and you had all your stuff prepared.
You know what? Fine.
Still want it?
Why would you do that, man?
That's disgus...
- You're sick, dude. You're sick.
- I love it.
Jimmy, are you seriously going to sit there
and drink that whole thing in front of us?
Yeah, you know...
We could kill you right now.
- And nobody would ever find your body.
- What...?
No, I lied. I don't want it. That's gross.
That tastes like pond water.
Hey, at least it's warm pond water.
You know Jimmy. He probably
put laxative in it or something.
- It's just herbal tea and honey.
- Yeah, pond water.
Hey, Art, I bet you he pissed in it.
Come on, man!
- You suck.
- Any more goodies in that bag, Jimmy?
- Sterno can.
- Fire it up.
- Yeah.
- Nice.
There we go.
Ain't that the prettiest thing
you've ever seen?
We've got to be hyper-vigilant
about our use of time.
You know, can you just for once try
and use some one-syllable words
you know, for us regular retards?
All I'm saying is that the ice
can be unpredictable, okay?
- That's five syllables.
- Ice is formed from crystals,
- which are hexagonal...
- Wait. What is that?
- Four syllables?
- Four syllables!
- Hexagons of oxygen and hydrogen...
- Six syllables! He's going up!
In the middle of each hexagon,
is a hole.
- Three!
- Three syllables!
Look how smart he is!
Look how smart he is!
- He's too freaking smart!
- It's a hole.
That hole is why ice floats.
It's less dense than water.
- What happens if somebody falls in?
- Nobody's going to fall in.
- He'd turn into a popsicle.
- Worse.
Most people think
it's hypothermia, but...
the killer write-off
is cold-shock response.
You gasp uncontrollably
until you inhale water and drown.
If that doesn't get you,
then there's a good chance
that the blood returning to your heart
is so cold that you go into cardiac arrest.
You die.
- Thank you, sunshine.
- I just shit my pants.
I am in a great mood. Thanks for that.
Man. But at least your dad knows
something about cooking.
- You two aren't going to starve.
- What do you mean?
It's a small town, Case.
People are so wrapped up in gossip here.
They don't have any lives of their own.
Well, I hope you guys like
hotdogs medium-well to frozen.
- Mine's getting toasty.
- Give me that.
Everyone okay?
Jesus Christ.
Oh, my God!
- What the hell!
- Nice going, dipshit!
What a deathtrap.
Where's my glove?
Hey! Hey!
- What?
- You okay, man?
What's up, buddy?
Don't you guys ever take a break?
Come on, guys. Let's go. We got a lot
of ground to cover and not much light.
Look, I'm just saying, I'm fine, but...
I just need to catch my breath, okay?
- I was so stupid for letting you come.
- It's too far to turn back now.
- I have no idea where we are.
- We've got to be at least halfway, right?
It's hard to tell without any landmarks.
- Jesus. We're not even halfway.
- No!
Look, I told you jerk-offs
it wasn't going to be easy, okay?
- It's not like we're quitting.
- Jimmy, where are we going?
We get even a couple degrees off and we
could be going to the middle of the lake,
and next thing you know, it's spring.
We need to go in a heading
of 170 degrees, so...
New York is more that way.
Okay. Let's just get going, man.
I'm freezing my balls off.
- You won't need them.
- Yeah, but your mom will.
I thought we were here to skate, man.
- Relax, man! It was a joke!
- What the hell is your problem, man?
We're here for a reason, aren't we?
Can we just go? Can we just skate, please?
Another crack!
Stop! Guys, stop! Look out!
- Brake!
- Guys, stop!
- Get back!
- Holy shit, man!
That thing is huge!
Holy shit!
Oh, my God.
You guys coming or what?
What, are you serious?
If we fall in the thing, they'll be
taking us home on a plank, bro.
Take the tampons out
and just jump it. I did it!
- No.
- Come back, Rudy.
I'm not going back.
Figure it out, pussies. Hurry up!
No... no way. It's too far.
- Seriously?
- Dude, I'm surprised you jumped this thing.
Of course I could do it!
Am I going to stand here all day alone?
There's got to be some way across.
Jimmy, why don't...
Why don't you and I head down that way?
Boney, you take Artie down that way.
- And split up?
- We're already split-up.
Artie's right, man. The last thing
we want to do is get... get separated.
It's just ten minutes.
We don't find anything, we come back,
and we'll figure
something else out, I guess.
I know what I'm doing.
Rudy, wait!
Is he leaving?
No, no. He's just screwing with us.
Let's just find a way across.
Ten minutes, okay?
- Yeah, ten minutes.
- All right. Let's go.
See you in a bit.
Who pissed in Rudy's cheerios
this morning?
I don't understand why he doesn't
just talk to someone about it.
It's just Rudy.
Casey, there's no way we're getting
across here, man. Let's just go back.
Come on, just a little further.
No, no. Like, back.
I mean, back, man. Back home.
What are you doing?
Just... I can't see a thing!
I'm really scared, Casey!
Like, why are we even out here?
Why'd we even follow through
with this dumbass...
Calm down, man! It's not a big deal!
You're overreacting!
We're fine! We're really fine!
We can do this!
- I gotta come back. I can't do this anymore.
- Jesus Christ, Jimmy! Come on!
Come on!
Come on! What are you doing?
Look at me. I'm Casey, okay?
This is our lake.
We can do this. Look at me.
Look at me. Look at me.
- Okay.
- Okay?
I just... Okay, Casey.
Just let me up, okay? I'm fine.
I'm okay.
Okay, we should... we should
head back towards the guys.
They're probably wondering about us.
Okay. Let's go.
Do you think they found anything?
Hey, Boney. Boney!
Holy shit!
- This is a kid!
- Shut up.
No, seriously, look! Look at this thing.
This is a body.
Think about what you just said.
Why would there be a kid way out here?
I don't know.
What are we doing out here?
It's not a kid. It's a pair of jeans.
It probably blew off
someone's laundry line.
Okay. Come on. We're not getting
across here. Let's go.
Why do you think he's doing this?
Why'd he do it?
What are you talking about?
He jumped the gap.
Yeah, but he took off.
He's just having fun.
We'll get across and find him.
But what if we don't? What if he's gone?
You worry too much, buddy.
You said so yourself.
He's just messing with us. That's it.
My dad's going to be so pissed.
Come on.
Get up. Get up. Come on. Stand up.
Look at me. We'll find Rudy.
I promise. Okay?
Come on. Let's go find the guys.
Hey, guys.
We got nothing.
I didn't see him on our end.
- Rudy! Rudy!
- Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Art, forget it, man. He split.
He split?
Where would he have gone?
New York, dummy. Without us.
Is that what he was thinking
the entire time? He was just going to...
Ditch us and go off by himself?
Things have been getting worse at home,
but he wouldn't just bail.
Really? Well, look.
It was a stupid idea anyway.
- What's he doing?
- Casey, what are you...
He's out of his mind.
Holy shit! We're all going to die!
Oh, my God.
Dude, for a minute,
I thought we were done!
Did it occur to anybody that we got to get
back across this thing on the way home?
It's cold enough.
Let's hope it freezes over.
- Okay, come on. Let's go find Rudy.
- Yeah. Let's go.
- Yeah!
- I'm freezing my ass off.
That was extreme!
What the hell, man?
- Where were you going?
- Nowhere.
That's horseshit, Rudy. Come on.
- Just give me my hat back.
- No.
You were ready to leave me behind
to deal with Dad.
No. Yeah, I...
- Look, I don't know.
- Could have fooled me.
Yeah. Yeah, I was. I took off, okay?
For the first time in my life, I feel like
I'm finally doing something just for me.
I don't want to go back home.
When you got to New York,
what were you going to do?
I don't know. Didn't matter, because...
I mean, anything's better
than what I got right now.
What do I have to look forward to?
Driving a truck for my dad?
- This is my chance to get out!
- What about me?
What about you?
What, I get to stay behind
and be Dad's punching bag?
I've been there for you.
I can't be the punching bag forever.
Then just go.
Are you coming?
All right, wait. You know what?
Take out your phone.
Let's try and...
Try to see where we are, okay?
Let's use that island
as a landmark, all right?
- Oh, shit, guys.
- What?
- What is it?
- My phone froze up.
- Restart your phone.
- No, like... frozen-frozen.
I didn't put it in the inside pocket
the last time I used it.
I think the battery's froze up.
Jimmy the genius didn't think
about this beforehand?
Okay. Everybody, check your phones.
You piece of shit. No, I got nothing.
Yeah, I got no bars.
Maybe we have no signal because
we're on the American side of the border.
Well, do the plugs want to stand here all day
freezing or do you want to keep on going?
Hey, Broadway, Times Square. I'm in.
Any of you geniuses actually
ever look at a map of New York?
That's going to be fun.
Boys, looks like we got to go over.
This is going to suck.
King of the world!
There it is, boys.
Gentlemen, as promised,
the empire state of New York!
Yeah, buddy!
We are now crossing the sovereign
territory of the United States.
Anything to declare, comrades?
We did it. Think we'll be
on both Canadian and U.S. T.V.?
We'll be on freaking Al Jazeera.
Guys, before you start practicing
your acceptance speeches,
- we still got a long way to go.
- Where are you going?
I've got to take a piss. Want to help me?
You want to hold it up for me?
- This ain't no time for modesty, bro.
- He's afraid we're going to see.
What? His vagina?
No. His small dick!
- Help me!
- Rudy!
- Help!
- Rudy!
Shit! Rudy!
- No, no, wait!
- Get me out!
Get him out of there! Help him! Come on!
- It's freezing!
- We could fall in too, okay?
- We need a rope, Jimmy!
- Art!
- Where are we going to get a rope?
- I don't know!
Somebody do something!
He's going to die!
- Keep your head up!
- Just stay calm, okay?
- Rudy!
- Grab my jacket!
I can't reach it! Guys, help!
Come on! Throw it again!
I'm trying!
- I can't reach it!
- Grab my jacket!
- He's dying! Quick!
- Grab onto me, guys! Come on!
- Pull me up!
- Okay! Three, two, one!
One more time!
- Get him out! Come on!
- Grab it! Hold on tight! On my count!
Three, two, one!
Okay, pull!
- Get me out! Pull me out!
- Two, one, together!
You've got to hold!
Pull me up! Pull!
- Get him out.
- Come on, Rudy.
Get him up. Get him up. Stand him up.
- You okay, man?
- He's freezing.
Get him up.
Hey, guys, we've got to get
these clothes off.
- It's gonna be okay.
- Casey, you got anything in your bag?
Yeah, there's a shirt in there, I think.
Everybody pitch in a layer.
Get his jacket off.
Get the other sleeve. It's okay, buddy.
We're going to get you warm. Okay?
Hey, Art, I got hats and hot packs
in that back pocket.
Get the other sleeve.
Jimmy, give me a hand here. Come on.
There's no pants in here, man.
- Knee warmers in the back pocket...
- No, no. I found it. I found it.
Let's get you warm. Yes, thank you.
I got a hoodie when you guys are ready.
Jimmy. Okay.
- Here you go.
- Here, put these on his back.
Come on, come on! Good, good.
Okay, thanks.
- Does anyone have a coat?
- His jacket. Here.
Thank you.
- We got to warm him up.
- He's got to be warm by now though, right?
No, his core temperature's dropping.
His body's giving up on his extremities
in order to save his vital organs.
Here, get his skates off.
You'll be okay.
Are you okay?
- I got them. I got them.
- There.
It's okay. You're okay.
Hypothermia's going
to set in any second.
We got to get him to shore
as soon as we can, man.
You're going to be okay.
You're going to be okay.
- It's going to be fine.
- No, no, no. It's okay.
Right skate first.
Get him up.
Over here! Come on! Over here!
- Help us!
- Hey!
Will you please help us?
Having a nice day, fellas?
- My brother fell in the lake.
- We need to get him someplace warm.
Dude, awesome truck.
Well, is there a...
is there a sign up top that says
"chump taxi service"?
Please! He's freezing!
Oh, dude, come on, man!
You're not even going to help us?
- He's going to die if you don't help!
- Come on, man!
Iceman's the name. Get in.
There's room for three of you in the cab.
The other two, up back.
Jimmy and Boney,
why don't you guys go in the back?
Better make sure frosty the snowman
doesn't drip all over the place.
Rudy, we're going to get you warm.
It's going to be fine.
Careful with the stiletto heels there.
Just got new mats.
- Okay.
- You okay?
- How come we had to get in the back?
- Watch out. It's slippery.
Help me up.
That's bullshit.
Hey, do you mind
if we turn the heat a little?
Guys. Geez, man, it's already
a sweatbox in here,
but hey, whatever lifts your skirt.
I'm cranking it up to the top.
Where you dudes coming from?
Oh. Canucks?
It's... it's a long way from home.
Yeah. Actually, we're going to New York.
It's tricky traveling out here,
especially when you're riding on nothing
but a couple butter knives
on shoes, right?
It's a big skating rink, but...
I guess you guys probably know
the best route back to Canada.
- We're going to New York, aren't we?
- Oh, yeah.
I don't think we're headed
to New York anymore.
- What do you mean?
- I'm pretty sure we never turned around.
You sure, Jimmy? You've got
to be absolutely positive, man.
I'm telling you, man.
We're headed back to Canada.
- I'm riding shotgun.
- Holy shit, dude.
Hey, excuse me?
Listen, we really appreciate
the ride and everything,
but you can just drop us off here.
We think we're going the wrong way.
- Hey!
- Hey!
- Guys, we're going the wrong way!
- Casey!
You've got to turn the truck around!
We're headed towards the gap!
- I think we're going the wrong way.
- Ask any number of people, skippy.
I went the wrong way... a long time ago.
Dude, there's a huge-ass crack that way.
We're going to die.
- Turn this goddamn truck around, man!
- Sit down.
Really, I think we've
been this way before.
I bet you know all kinds of coves and little
hideaways across the Canadian side.
Get down. Get down!
- Hey, Jimmy, check it out.
- What is that stuff?
- They're smugglers.
- What do we do? Are you sure?
Yeah, yeah, yeah. My grandfather
did it for years. Trust me.
- Shit! What are we going to do?
- I don't know. I don't know.
Casey, look.
I think this guy wants you to pull over.
Well, I want to be chilling
in a hot tub with Jennifer Lopez.
Don't mean it's going to happen.
- Whoa! What the hell, man?
- Oh, shit!
Whoa! Stop, man!
- You need to pull over!
- Shut your mouth.
- Throw them over. Start throwing them over.
- Hey, iceman!
We're throwing your cigarettes over!
- Hey!
- Yeah, money!
- Oh, what the...
- Iceman!
It's my fault.
I got us into this crazy shit.
Nobody forced anybody. We all wanted to.
Let's get out of here.
Get him out, quick.
- Casey.
- Hey!
Let's get the hell out of here, guys.
- You guys okay?
- Yeah.
- Where are we?
- What the hell happened, man?
Casey grabbed the wheel.
New York's that way.
Can't believe you did that, Case.
That's awesome.
Piece of crap.
Almost there, man. Almost there.
I'm so done.
No, you're not, asshole.
One foot in front of the other. Come on.
- I don't think I can.
- Yeah, you can.
Get your head in the game.
Okay? Everyone, we're almost there!
Come on!
- Oh, we did it!
- We got here, guys!
- What are the odds?
- New York!
- New York.
- Land! Land!
I'm not getting back on that lake.
I've never been so happy
to see a lighthouse.
I'm getting a New York steak.
- I can't believe it.
- Coney Island dog.
- That and buffalo wings.
- And a Philly cheese steak.
Philly cheese steak?
Philly is not in New York.
- I don't care. I'm just getting one.
- You guys are awesome.
This is so much better
in front of the fire.
It's good to be inside finally.
Ain't that the prettiest thing
you've ever seen?
- One, two, three.
- What's up?
Great. Good one. How you guys doing?
Looks like you had a hard day.
Can I get you something to drink?
- Oh, please do.
- Yes, please.
- Yeah. We just skated all the way from...
- Shut the hell up.
Yeah, I'll get a Long Island
iced tea, please.
A Long Island iced tea. Fine choice.
And I'll have you
with extra whipped cream.
You're not appropriate, but I like it anyway.
Anybody else? Something?
Dude, iced, seriously? Come on, we've been
on ice all day. Get something warm.
- Irish coffee? Irish coffee?
- I like that. A round of Irish coffees.
Irish coffees. It's my favorite drink.
No way. They're, like, my favorite, too.
We have so much in common.
- Oh, my God.
- So good.
We are made for each other.
Okay, I'll be back.
God, she's hot.
- Thank you.
- Damn, dude.
- She was so hitting on you.
- Was she?
- Oh, yeah, totally.
- Nice.
Dude, when that guy in the truck
just came peeling in...
- Yeah.
- What was his name?
- "You can call me...
- Iceman."
That was awesome.
His buddy in the back?
Didn't even know he was there.
Me and he were in the back. Some dude comes
out of nowhere with a double-barrel shotgun.
- Just popping rounds off.
- There was a shotgun?
I thought the car hit
the bank and backfired.
- Shotgun.
- By the way, thanks for ditching us at the gap.
Come on. Did you see me clear...
it was insane!
You should have seen us do it, though.
Dude, we couldn't find a way across.
We had to figure out a way to jump.
- How'd you guys do that, by the way?
- Whip!
- Whip!
- Not even joking.
You whipped it? No way.
I don't believe you.
- Over the gap, I swear to God.
- Seriously?
Dude, I didn't think this guy
was going to make it.
You know, Rudy, I've been meaning to ask...
how cold was that water?
You're a dickhead.
You're going to help me defrost.
Okay. Here we go.
- Yeah, right?
- Thank you, sweetheart.
You're welcome. My pleasure.
This isn't Irish coffee.
No, but if you want
to show me some I.D.,
I can give you some alcohol.
Otherwise, out in the parking lot.
- Okay?
- Okay.
You're cute, but...
don't bleed on my furniture.
Might want to clean that up, boss.
Hey, I think you should take a look
at that in the mirror.
Yeah. I'll be back in a minute.
- Casey, let me explain.
- There's nothing to explain.
- You don't under...
- Yes, I do!
- No, you don't...
- I don't want to talk about it!
Just please go back inside!
I don't want to talk about it.
Did you follow me here?
What are you doing here?
What are you doing here?
Dr. Janeau wanted to go
to his office in Syracuse
and drop some stuff off,
and he wanted some company.
I guess those stitches worked out
pretty well for both of you.
That is not fair.
What are you doing here?
We skated.
- Across the lake?
- Yeah, the whole thing, all of us.
- And your dad just let you...
- He didn't know.
- Of course he didn't.
- None of us told anybody.
Casey, you could have gotten hurt!
You could have got lost...
But we did it! We did it!
We did it! I did it! And we...
I'm happy! I was proud!
Go inside, please.
I need to call your father. We've got to figure
out how we're going to get you all home.
I'm not going to lie to him for you.
I wouldn't expect you to.
Sweetheart, your stitches are...
Casey, honey.
Get off, man.
Yeah, we're here.
Heads up.
- Thanks, man.
- Peace, buddy.
Good night, Casey.
Good night, sweetheart.
Hey, thanks for the lift,
but we can walk from here.
Everybody, stay put. You guys have caused
enough excitement for one day.
Okay, fine.
Okay! Yeah, you guys show
this intensity tomorrow night,
and the Tmberwolves are going
to know they're in for a fight!
Bring it in!
Let's go, Demas.
All right, guys, I don't want you
to get all worked up,
but tomorrow night, one of the coaches
in Cornwall is coming by to have a look.
What do you mean? The Cornwall Colts?
Yeah. Now, I don't want to see
any puck-hogging or showboating.
They want to see your speed and skill,
but they also want to see if you can play
in a team system, alright?
Wait. Someone from the juniors
is coming to watch us?
If you get chippy out there, I guarantee you,
you'll be gone by the end of the first period.
Guys, forget about the scouts.
Just play our game.
Yeah, that's what I want to hear.
Let's finish up with some
penalty shots, guys. Come on.
Let's go!
Here we come, Demas!
- Nice.
- Yeah, buddy!
That's it. Stay locked in!
Nice! Good poke. Good poke.
Good poke! Guys, focus.
Hey. Case.
Just 'cause he's dangling doesn't mean
he won't snipe you like that.
- Hey, Doug! Doug, get off the ice.
- Just give me a minute.
- Hey, come on.
- You were a goalie.
- Come on, you know better than this.
- I got to talk to you.
Hey, stop standing around. Bouchard,
hit the net. Keep it up, guys. Let's go.
What are you doing? Come on.
Case, you're just forgetting your basics.
Did you feel it? You must've felt it.
It's obvious. Look, show them a little net.
Draw them in. It's goalie 101.
You can't do this. You can't come out
on the ice like that. That's not cool.
- I have to go back out.
- I know. Focus, set, save...
I know that! I'm not in select, okay?
I have to go back out there!
I know I haven't been there for you, but I'm
trying to explain something to you, Case.
You've got to take charge,
give him what he thinks is an opening,
make him shoot the shot
you know you can stop.
I got to go.
Hey! Hey, Casey!
Hey! Hey!
You look like you got
a pretty heavy load there.
Are you demented or just naturally stubborn?
Here, let me help. Okay, wow.
Maybe next time, you should think
about picking a position with lighter gear.
I like being goalie.
Okay. You like people shooting projectiles
at you like they're coming out of a gun.
The puck doesn't go in, we can't lose.
Kind of makes it my game.
That's a little bit of pressure,
don't you think?
I don't know. I guess it's like that.
They say that a goalie
has to have a bad memory
so he can begin every game
with a fresh start.
How's that working?
Sometimes, better than others.
Can't always control it.
I saw you back there with your dad.
You two looked like
you were kind of going at it.
Does every single person
in this town know everything?
Small town curse.
Well, anyway...
I go this way.
I'm up here.
- Yeah, sorry.
- Yeah, thank you.
I should...
I guess I should probably go.
Where are you going to go?
I have to work out.
Yeah? Yeah? You've got to work out?
- How long is that going to take?
- Not long. An hour. Not long.
I have a hockey game tomorrow night,
but you want to hang out after that?
Good work, Demas. There's hope yet.
Hey. I thought you were
coming in tomorrow.
This is for you.
- Thank you.
- Do you like it?
Yeah, it's great.
I thought maybe
you could use it in the game.
Probably need some time
to work it in first.
Of course.
Can you hold onto it until later?
Just until later?
Okay... I should...
- Thank you.
- Have a great game.
Don't get hurt.
Play like men!
Not like a bunch of pussies! Damn it!
Dad! Sit down. You're embarrassing us.
- What?
- Sit down!
Yeah! Let's go! Go! Whoo! Do it!
- They're pulling the goalie!
- See that, boys? They're coming hard!
Change two! Go, go, go!
- Hey.
- Hey, handsome. Nice goal.
- You want a lift?
- I think I'm okay.
Do you want to get a snack or something?
No, it's not like a date. It's just...
- You okay?
- Yeah.
- She's very cute.
- Okay.
- You see that save?
- I did.
It was breathtaking.
Should I take that?
I thought maybe you could get
your dad to sign it for you.
This is a great glove.
Look, Case, I'm sorry.
I should have told you what was going on.
I just... I didn't give you enough credit.
You've changed.
I should probably... go.
- Yes, go.
- Okay.
- Tomorrow?
- Tomorrow. I'll pick you up from practice.
Okay. See you tomorrow.
- Hey. Sorry for the wait.
- Hey. That was incredible.
So... a bunch of kids
are going over to Pinheads.
- Do you want to go hang out?
- Yeah.
- It's like a sauna out here.
- Oh, man.
Goddamn, I did not think
it was going to be this cold.
I know.
Is it just me or is it colder
than elephant dick?
It's colder than a penguin
humping a popsicle.
How would you know?
When's Casey going to show up, man?
I'm freaking freezing.
- Hey, Casey!
- Hey, guys.
- What's up, man?
- I thought you guys said 9:00.
No, no.
- Oh, man, it's cold.
- I know, right?
I still can't believe we did that.
- I still can't believe no one died.
- Well, it was... close.
Hey, take it easy.
How you feeling, by the way?
I'm still waiting for everything to just
drop back down,
like it's supposed to, you know.
So, boys...
what's our next big adventure?
I'll tell you what, man.
If it doesn't involve a beach
and broads in bikinis, I'm out.
We could take some snowmobiles out there,
and go to the North Pole or something.
Easy. Easy, easy, easy.
Man, if I took my dad's snowmobile,
he would disown me.
- Yeah, he loves that thing.
- More than me.
Let's go to Pinheads, man. This sucks.
- Pinheads? I'm down with pinheads.
- Let's go.
