(tense melancholy music)
- Hey.
What's up?
What's wrong?
(siren wailing)
Tell me.
- Okay.
I ...
Hello, is anybody home?
- I think I'll go with Walter.
- What?
You don't like Zeke?
Fine, then.
- I didn't know it was a name.
- It's a name.
What is your perfect
magical name then?
- I don't know.
- Wow!
That Tom?
- Very creative.
- Yeah, so creative
and innovative
and never been done before.
Yeah, great, Tom.
- What?
Agree to disagree?
- And we've given birth
to the 20 millionth Tom.
- You see what it
look like a pine cone.
- I would not like a pine cone.
- Smooshy.
(tense music)
(door thudding)
(breathing heavily)
Thanks for doing this.
(tense music)
(melancholy piano music)
(faint uptempo music)
Hey sleepyhead.
- [Ray] Hi.
What time is it?
- Just after two.
Have a nice nap?
- Yeah.
- Whoa.
This light right now.
You're looking very sexy.
I'm having a real hard time
keeping my eyes on the road.
- [Ray] All right.
- Hey, for real.
You're doing really good.
A lot better than the last ones.
- Think so?
- Know so.
Plus it's gonna be fun.
I'm excited!
- Yeah, I'm excited.
- [Cory] Are you excited?
Are you sure?
- I am very excited.
- Come on (mumbling).
- I'm excited!
- [Cory] I'm more excited still.
- [Ray] I don't
think that's true.
Well, I hope you like it.
- Why wouldn't I like it?
Come on, I'll love it.
You grew up there, right?
- [Ray] Yes, I did.
- [Cory] Well, you
turned out okay, so.
- [Ray] I did.
- [Cory] I love it,
I love it, I love it.
- [Ray] Ew, ew, no!
How's it going?
- [Cory] It's fine.
- [Ray] Do you have the jack?
- [Cory] Ray.
- [Ray] I'm just, I'm sorry.
I'm just saying, I've
done it a couple times,
so I don't know if you needed--
- [Cory] Can you
just let me do it?
- [Ray] I'm letting you do it.
- [Cory] Can you
stop hovering please?
- [Ray] I'm not hovering.
- [Cory] You're hovering.
- [Ray] I'm literally over here!
I'm not hovering.
- [Cory] It's like
you're over my shoulder.
Just stop.
- [Ray] Okay, then just do it.
Would you like me to
walk down the road?
Would that make
this easier for you?
- [Cory] Can you
just stop talking?
- [Ray] This is the
first time I've said
anything in 10 minutes, okay?
- [Cory] Can you stop?
Just let me concentrate.
(arguing over each other)
- [Ray] Great.
- [Cory] Great,
someone's stopping.
Oh, what are these guys doing?
(footsteps clacking)
Can I help you?
- [Man] You guys need some help?
- [Cory] No, we're uh--
- [Man] Oh, you guys
are lucky we stopped by.
Not that many people
come around here.
- What brings ya all
the way out here?
- [Cory] Just goin'
upstate for the weekend.
- [Man] Little getaway?
- Yep.
- Well, you havin'
trouble with the change?
- [Cory] No, just, I got it.
Flat tire can mean
different things,
so I'm tryin' to make sure I--
- Yeah.
Many different
types of flat tires.
How long you two been together?
- Anyway, thank you.
We're all set, so,
get back to the tire.
- Have a tire iron.
- [Cory] Look, we're good.
I appreciate you stopping.
- You got the tire off the car.
- [Cory] Yeah, I know.
Yeah, if you have one,
that'd be great, thanks.
- Vern.
Reach for the car and
fetch the shotgun.
I'm just messing with ya.
You see his face, Vern?
Vern, will you go
get the tire iron
from the car and help this
gentleman with the change?
- Thank you.
- No problem.
(footsteps clacking)
While they do that,
why don't we go look
for the one you lost?
- What?
- The tire iron.
I saw you throw
it into the woods
when we were drivin' up.
- [Cory] Oh, that's all right.
- [Man] What's all right?
- [Cory] Don't worry about it.
- [Man] But then you
won't have a tire iron.
- [Cory] Yeah, they're
a dime a dozen.
- I think they're a little
more than a dime a dozen.
- [Cory] It's a
figure of speech.
- [Man] I know what a
figure of speech is.
- I wasn't saying you didn't.
- You embarrassed?
- [Cory] No.
- Embarrassed to ask for help?
- No, I just don't think
that you guys need to...
- It's all right.
You help him with the tire,
she'll come with me, we'll
go find the tire iron.
- I mean, if...
Yeah, okay.
Did you see where I...
- Are you kidding?
- [Man] After you.
(footsteps clacking)
- Thanks.
(leaves crunching)
- You know, I don't see it.
I think we should
probably go back.
I don't think I would've
thrown it this far.
- [Man] Really?
- Yeah.
- [Man] Well, why don't
we go a bit more in, then?
A bit more in.
(leaves crunching)
- Look, I really think, I think
we should really go back.
I just, I don't think, please,
I don't think it
would be this far out.
- [Man] Just a bit more in.
(leaves crunching)
Told you.
- Yeah.
We should probably go back now.
- [Man] Yeah.
(engine zooming)
- [Cory] So, you two
lovebirds have fun back there?
I was gettin' kinda jealous.
Come on, huh?
(tense music)
(door clattering)
- [Ray] Okay, here we are.
- [Cory] Wow.
- [Ray] Yeah, check
in is to your right.
- [Cory] Not too shabby.
This kitchen is amazing.
They stocked us up.
- Yeah.
They're really excited that
we're here this weekend.
- [Cory] I'm excited that
we're here this weekend.
- Good.
- [Cory] Look at all this wine.
All right.
- I have no idea
what any of it is,
so I make no promises
about quality.
- Quantity, not quality.
Which one do you want?
Doesn't matter, I'll pick.
- I think this is much
more your department.
- We're gonna
finish both of those
by the end of the night, okay?
- Okay.
- All right, cool.
Glad we agree.
(tense music)
So, you could like,
live here, huh?
It's like, a lot of space.
- Don't you think
you'd get bored?
- [Cory] I don't know.
I'm just sayin', no
one else is usin' it.
Let's at least try to have sex
in every room of the house.
- Absolutely.
Why didn't I think of that?
- [Cory] Right?
Just take it from there.
- Oh my God.
- [Cory] What's that?
- What?
Oh, nothing.
- [Cory] What is it?
- It's nothing.
- [Cory] Okay.
(tense music)
(apple crunching)
- I would certainly wash
those before I ate them
if I were you.
- [Cory] Tastes okay to me.
(tense somber music)
Hey, Ray.
- [Ray] Yeah.
- [Cory] What's
down this hallway?
This little door,
what is in there?
- [Ray] What?
- [Cory] What's down at
the end of this hall?
- [Ray] Oh, it's my dad's study.
He didn't let us in there.
- [Cory] Weird.
So, like, you just
never went in that room?
- [Ray] What?
- Your dad's study.
You never go in, ever?
- [Ray] No.
- Have you ever been in there?
- [Ray] No.
He told us not to.
- Yeah, when you were
like, five, right?
- [Ray] I, just...
- What?
- [Ray] Yeah, no, I've
never been in there.
- Your mom ever go in?
- [Ray] I don't know.
- So, he would just
like, come home from work
and disappear in this,
like, weird little room
that you're not
allowed to go in?
- [Ray] He wouldn't disapp--
he would just need to work
and I don't understand.
This is not like a weird thing.
- It's kinda weird.
Like, would you go
in it this weekend?
- [Ray] No.
- You just won't open that door?
- [Ray] I have no
desire to go in.
It really doesn't,
like, it's not an issue.
- I'm not saying it's an issue.
I'm just saying,
like, I had rules
when I was a kid--
- [Ray] Okay, exactly.
- And like, eventually
I was allowed to like,
go in my parents' room.
- [Ray] I mean,
I'm not gonna like,
ask my dad for written
permission to go into his study.
I don't care.
- I definitely wasn't
asking to like,
ask him for written permission.
I was like, why do you
need permission to go in?
- [Ray] I just have no desire.
- Like, we could just
go open the door.
Hey now.
- Ooh, what's this?
- [Cory] It's time.
- It's time.
He says forebodingly.
- That doesn't taste very good.
How much do you want?
- Um, that's good.
- [Cory] This much?
- That's good, that's good.
Oh my God.
- I spilled some.
- That's okay.
- Don't tell your mom.
- I won't.
She never liked you anyway.
So, you spilled it.
- I hate this sweater.
That's fine, that's fine.
- Just lick, just lick it off.
- Okay.
- What are we...
- I'm polishing it now.
- What are we drinking to?
- To this weekend.
- To this weekend?
- Yeah.
- Sure.
(mellow bluesy music)
- It's not bad.
- Let me just swirl it
around my mouth a little bit.
- Actually might be bad.
I don't know what's good wine.
- [Ray] It passes.
It's a little robust
for a merlot, but...
- Oakey?
Is it oakey?
- [Ray] It's oakey.
Ooh, that's--
- [Cory] Oh, fuck.
There I need
(mellow bluesy music)
'Cause I make you happy
Just as happy as
you can be, yeah
Have you always
There to love you
And I'll be always
There to love you
And I never
I never, never keep through
'Cause I'll be always
Always there just for you
I'm gonna hold
I'm gonna hold you
In my loving arms, yeah
Oh baby
Now, don't you
want a man like me
'Cause I make you happy
And this happy
- Still smells the same.
Like the trees outside.
- Mmm, I think I'm
burning some of those.
- That's okay.
It's warm.
It's nice.
Me and my dad
and Augie would
do this thing in the falls where
we would go out to those trees
and we'd get the um,
like, like the pea pod
things that would fall--
- Propellor things.
- Yeah, the helicopter
propellor things
and we'd put them on our noses.
- Why?
- I have no idea.
- Just to--
- Just to, because why not?
And we'd come back
inside and just like,
try to have normal
conversations with Mom
as though she somehow
wouldn't notice.
- Did that work?
- No, she always noticed.
But she would see Augie.
I think at this
point, he was like,
six or something
and she would see
the pea pods on his
little six year old nose
and she would just start
hysterically laughing
and he would always
say because she laughed
at him more than
she laughed at me
that he was obviously
the favorite sibling.
- This explains a lot.
- Yeah.
He was a really good kid.
I don't know, I think,
I think it kinda
broke them, you know?
- Yeah, I do.
I can't imagine
losing a kid what
that does to a parent.
I mean, it's, I'm sorry.
- Yeah.
Hey, Cory.
- [Cory] Mmm hmm.
- [Ray] Hey, Cory.
Can we do that thing?
- [Cory] Mmm, unh unh.
- Please?
- [Cory] No.
- Please?
- No.
- [Ray] Please, please,
please, please, please.
- No way.
- Please, come on.
No, no, no, no.
It is so helpful for
the med school stuff,
you can't even imagine.
- That's true.
- [Ray] It is true.
- Didn't think about that.
- [Ray] So you should,
you should help me.
- [Cory] Yeah.
- Like, for real?
- [Cory] Yeah.
- Okay.
I'm getting up.
- [Cory] Okay.
- Okay, thank you.
(tense music)
Now, hold still.
- [Cory] Yeah, yeah, yeah.
- [Ray] Doctor's orders.
- [Cory] Mmm.
Sounds hot.
(tense music)
- [Ray] Stay still.
- [Cory] Mmm hmm.
(tense music)
- [Ray] Okay, I am
making the first incision
into the pre-frontal cortex now.
(tense music)
- Oh my God, just
don't press that hard.
Oh, you better know I love you.
- [Ray] Do you?
- Yes, no!
- [Ray] What?
- [Cory] Take it easy.
Don't press that hard.
(tense music)
What's wrong?
- [Ray] Nothing.
- Come on, what did I say?
Ray, now stop.
- [Ray] What?
- You don't have
to keep cutting.
- [Ray] What?
- I'm playing this game for you.
Like, are you not having fun?
Like, why am I doing this
if you're not having fun?
- [Ray] You're
helping me, thank you.
- I'm doing the fucking
game you wanted me to do--
- [Ray] I know.
Thank you so much for--
(talking over each other)
- I can never say
anything right.
- [Ray] You're just not
actually saying anything.
- [Cory] What did I say?
What do you mean?
You're the one
being like totally--
- [Ray] Being like totally what?
It sounds like you
have something to say,
so just say it.
- [Cory] Just can
you stop with the--
- [Ray] What am I asking--
- Fucking nut.
(tense music)
(tense music)
(floor squeaking)
(tense music)
(pounding on door)
- [Ray] Cory, Cory,
Cory, wake up.
(tense music)
There's someone
knocking at the door.
- [Cory] Shh!
- I promise I'm
not doing anything.
Ow, ow, shit, ow!
- [Cory] Jesus, Ray!
(pounding on door)
- [Ray] Ow, oh.
(cutlery clattering)
What time is it?
- [Cory] I don't know,
you just woke me up.
- I know, well, there's
someone at the door!
Oh my God.
(talking over each other)
(pounding on door)
(talking over each other)
(tense music)
What happened?
That's a nasty cut.
- Daddy did it.
(tense music)
- Is there someone else that
maybe you want us to call?
Like, your mom?
- Is this a game?
- No.
Can I get you something
to drink, maybe?
Like, some milk?
- [Zeke] Mmm hmm.
- Okay, okay, hold on.
(zipper swooshing)
- All right, hey, no.
Let's not do that.
(tense music)
- [Ray] Okay, there you go.
- [Zeke] Thanks, Mommy.
(tense music)
- Okay.
(tense music)
- Okay, we just wanted to
ask you a couple questions.
You know, so that
we can figure out
how to help you because
I don't know that--
- Hey, where'd you
come from, man?
- Hey, hey.
Come on, come on, that's
not how we're gonna do this.
- Let's get to it.
- Okay, okay, Cory, okay.
What were you doing
outside so late?
- [Zeke] I was hiding.
- You were hiding?
- From Daddy.
He was trying to,
Daddy hurt me, my mom,
so I wanted to hide, but it
was dark outside, so I...
(tense music)
- What's up?
- Whoa, hey, okay stop.
- [Zeke] I just wanted
to come back inside.
I'm sorry I ran away.
- It's okay.
You just shouldn't
be outside so late.
- I know, I'm sorry, Mommy.
I just didn't want Daddy
to hurt me anymore.
- Why are you looking at me?
- [Zeke] Don't me mad, Daddy.
- Can you not call me that,
and could we call
the cops, maybe?
I think it's time.
- Just relax, just relax.
What's your name?
- You don't remember?
- [Cory] Dude!
- Stop.
- Zeke.
I'm Zeke.
- Okay, you got this from here.
I'm going to bed.
- [Zeke] Is Daddy mad?
- No.
He's just,
And sometimes, when
you get too confused,
you can get scared.
- [Zeke] I didn't
mean to scare Daddy.
- [Ray] Hey, not
at all, it's okay.
It's okay, I know
that you didn't,
and he knows too,
it's really okay.
Why don't we just go to sleep
and we'll figure out
everything in the morning.
We'll get you home.
- [Zeke] I am home, Mommy.
- Okay, okay, come
here, come here.
Okay, goodnight.
(tense music)
- [Zeke] Mommy, the monsters
turned out the lights.
- Okay.
(tense music)
(footsteps thudding)
Did you have a bad dream?
- Yeah, monster tried eating me.
- Okay well, you're
safe now, I promise.
(tense music)
(footsteps thudding)
No monster.
He went away and
ate someone else.
Where would he hide?
(tense music)
- [Zeke] Mommy?
- Gotcha!
- Mommy, can I do your makeup?
- Sure, okay.
- [Zeke] Can I ask
you a question?
- [Ray] Uh huh.
- [Zeke] Why did you
let Daddy hurt me?
- [Ray] I would never
let anybody hurt you.
- I know, but he still did.
There, all done.
- Okay, let's take a look here.
This is really beautiful.
- Now, I cut your hair.
- Whoa!
I still haven't paid
you for the makeover.
- It's on the house.
- Thank you.
I love it.
- You're welcome.
(tense melancholy music)
- [Ray] I'm comin'!
I'm comin'!
(Zeke mumbling)
I'm coming for you.
You better run!
You better run!
(tense music)
You got me!
Is that as fast as you got?
'Cause I'm gonna get you!
You better run!
You better run,
I'm coming for you!
(tense music)
Zeke, are you up here?
- [Zeke] Mommy.
- You can't be in there.
(tense music)
- [Zeke] Come inside, Mommy.
(tense music)
(music crescendos)
(pounding on door)
- [Ray] Cory!
(pounding on door)
(breathing heavily)
I told you not to come in here.
Where are you?
- [Zeke] Hiding.
- [Ray] Hiding?
No, come here, Zeke.
- [Zeke] Are we
still playing, Mommy?
You haven't got me.
- [Ray] Zeke, you
come here right now.
- [Zeke] No.
- [Ray] Zeke, seriously,
this is not fun anymore.
I'm serious, Zeke, please.
Cory, Cory, Cory!
The door's locked, Cory!
(breathing heavily)
Oh, get me out, get me out,
get me out, Cory, please!
Please come here.
I don't want to play any more.
I don't like this game.
- [Zeke] Why don't you like it?
- [Ray] Because Mommy
doesn't like the dark, baby.
- [Zeke] Mommy's scared.
- [Ray] Yes, Mommy
is very scared.
- [Zeke] I'm sorry, Mommy.
- [Ray] It's okay.
(Zeke mumbling)
- [Zeke] Isn't fun
with just two people.
We should get Daddy to play.
- [Ray] No, no, that's
not what I meant.
- [Zeke] It will be more fun.
- [Ray] Well, Daddy's in bed
and so we can't play with him,
but if you help me
get out of here,
we can maybe find
someone else to play.
- [Zeke] Someone like Augie?
- [Ray] What?
What did you say?
- [Zeke] Your brother.
He says he misses you.
- [Ray] Okay, this
isn't fuckin' funny.
You let me out right now.
- [Zeke] Don't you miss him?
- [Ray] No, I'm so serious,
if you don't stop--
- [Zeke] Shh.
He's here.
- [Ray] Zeke, I--
- [Augie] Hi, Rayna.
(tense music)
(eerie choir music)
(tense music)
- Ray?
(tense music)
(tense music)
Where is she?
Hey, hey, hey!
Where is she?
- How many of us did
you check for Mommy?
- [Cory] What?
- Does Mommy know
that you still have
Amanda's phone number,
that you talk to her?
- Tell me where she is.
- I will, but first, we
have to do something.
(milk glugging)
- Seriously?
- [Zeke] I made Mommy disappear.
She won't be back
until after we play.
- Yeah, well I think
maybe a kid your age
shouldn't be playin'
with the stove.
- [Zeke] Okay, Daddy.
- Quit calling me that.
- Sorry, Daddy.
- [Cory] What is this, anyway?
- It's milk tea.
It's mine and Mommy's favorite.
- [Cory] Oh yeah, I'm sure
that lactose intolerant
Mommy's favorite
drink is milk tea.
- [Zeke] What's
lactose intolerant?
- Lactose intolerant
is when you can't
have milk or cheese.
- [Zeke] Why not?
- Your body can't handle it.
- [Zeke] Well, what does
your body do with it?
- All right, so imagine
Rayna has a piece of cheese
and her stomach will,
after, you know, it
makes Rayna fart.
Yeah, isn't that gross?
- That's so weird.
My milk tea never made Mommy
fart when she was pregnant.
- Yeah well, she's
pretty good at hiding--
- [Zeke] That's so weird.
- No, what did you say?
- [Zeke] Milk tea never--
- No, after that,
what did you say?
What did you say?
Just say the whole
sentence again.
Dude, what did you say?
(glass crashing)
(tense music)
Hey, buddy.
I shouldn't have done that.
I'm sorry.
Just kind of a
crazy night.
I don't know what's
going on and I really
just need to find Rayna.
(tense music)
If you could tell
me where Rayna is,
can you please tell
me where Rayna is?
(tense music)
- [Zeke] She's upstairs
in the deep room.
- [Cory] Thank you.
(tense music)
- [Ray] Cory.
- Didn't you hear me calling?
- [Ray] Are you okay?
- I was...
I didn't think...
You scared me, you
really scared me.
- [Ray] Come here, I want
to show you something.
- Please come talk to me, Ray.
- [Ray] We are talking.
- I wanna talk in private.
Please come talk to me.
- [Ray] We are in private.
- Please, Ray.
- [Ray] What's wrong?
- Please just come talk to me.
Will you come outta there?
(tense music)
Apple shampoo
Oh yes I do
Any apple shampoo
Oh yes I do
I love your morning coffee
Or perfume
I love your apple
Apple shampoo
Or perfume
I love your apple
Apple shampoo
Okay, please be careful.
- I know.
- Okay.
- I know.
It's okay.
- Okay, okay, okay.
- Okay.
I'm feeling very
uncomfortable right now
and I know that you might
not share my feelings,
but I'm asking you
to just hear me out.
I really think we,
what are you doing?
- Okay.
- I think we need
- Okay.
- To call the cops.
I would like to call the cops
and get this boy
out of your house.
- Why are you so
afraid of our boy?
- What?
- Why are you so
afraid of this boy?
- That's not what you said.
- Hey, wait, stop, stop,
sit down, sit down.
Hey come on, it's
okay, it's okay, shh.
It's okay.
- Oh, thing's will
go back to normal.
I just want things
to go back to normal.
- I know, it's okay.
Hey come here.
Come here, come
here, come here, hey.
I'm here, okay.
Okay, come here, come here.
(eerie melancholy music)
We haven't had this in so long.
- [Cory] I know, just, ow.
Just be careful, stop.
Ray, stop.
Ray, stop it.
- [Ray] What?
- What is wrong with you?
- You wanna know
what's wrong with me?
What's wrong with me is that
you don't do or say anything.
You just hide or retreat as
soon as anything gets hard
or gets complicated.
I was not ready
for this, either,
but I was down to try to
figure it out with you
because that's what you
do when you love someone.
And after being asleep
at the fucking wheel
for five years, you
decide to wake up
and have a fucking
opinion about anything
and it's this and now
you are the reason
that I'm not pregnant any more.
(eerie choir music)
I'm so sorry.
I don't even...
- I'm sorry, too.
- [Ray] I love you.
- [Cory] I love you, too.
- Oh my God, what?
Are we okay?
- [Cory] Yeah, we're good.
- [Ray] You sure?
- [Cory] Yeah.
- [Ray] Pinky promise.
Hi, I'm at 1332
Cooper Lake Road.
Yeah, I just wanted
to report that a kid
showed up at my door in
the middle of the night.
I'm not sure who he is.
Yeah, yeah, no, he's
fine, he's fine,
but I was just
wondering if you maybe
could send somebody
to come pick him up?
If that would be okay.
Yeah, yeah, yeah,
that'd be great.
Okay, thank you so much, bye.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
- [Cory] I don't think so.
- You know, you
should go to bed.
I got him.
- You sure?
- Yeah, I'm okay.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
Ooh, ooh, careful.
- That's fine.
Love you.
- Love you, too.
- Love you more.
- No.
(tense music)
(floor creaking)
(music crescendos)
- [Cory] Come back to bed, Ray.
(tense music)
- The pear's a monster egg.
We have to find it
before it hatches.
If it hatches, it turns
into a big monster!
It eats the family!
(tense music)
- Got it.
- Ready?
- Yeah.
- [Zeke] Go.
I'm gonna get it,
Mommy, I'm gonna get it.
(footsteps thudding)
- [Ray] Get that monster egg.
- [Zeke] Nice try, Mommy.
- [Ray] Get it, get it.
Get it!
- [Zeke] Hey, no cheating!
- [Ray] I'm not!
I'm not cheating!
- [Cory] What are you doing?
- [Ray] Ah!
- [Cory] Ray.
- [Zeke] I felt it!
- [Ray] Found it?
No you didn't.
- I felt it.
- [Ray] Oh, okay.
- [Cory] Ray.
- [Ray] Ah!
- [Cory] Ray.
- Gotcha.
- [Zeke] Mommy, that's scary!
- No shit, it's scary.
Ray, can you get him cleaned up?
They're gonna pick
him up any minute.
- What?
- [Cory] Put the scissors down.
- No.
- You really wanna
do this right now?
Ray, just put down the scissors.
- No.
- [Cory] Ray, give
me the scissors.
- Hey, ow!
Hey, stop!
- Put 'em down.
- [Ray] Let go.
Stop it.
Get your hands off me!
- Stop, stop fighting!
(tense music)
- Fuck.
(breathing heavily)
(tense music)
(footsteps thudding)
- Hey, Daddy look!
I got the egg monster.
- [Ray] Hey, hey (mumbling).
- Ray just stop, Ray
just stop, please stop.
(talking over each other)
- For like, one second.
It's okay, it's okay.
- [Cory] Stop, stop, stop, stop.
- Hey, you're okay,
you're okay, it's okay.
Can I show you?
It's right over there.
You can leave after
if you want, I just,
I just, I think
you'll feel better.
I think you'll feel better.
If you let me show you, I
think you'll feel better.
- Stop it, stop.
- [Ray] I think you'll feel
better, it's right over there.
- Stop, please stop,
I'm leaving, I'm gone.
- [Ray] Can I just show you?
(tense music)
Oh, hold on, hold on.
- [Zeke] He's waking!
- [Ray] Oh, here.
It's gonna hurt again.
We wanna make sure we
don't hit him in the front.
Do you remember why?
- [Zeke] Uh, because
it'll give him a scar?
- [Ray] No, because it'll
give him brain damage,
remember, and we don't
want brain damage, right?
- [Zeke] Oh, right.
- [Ray] All right, but
if we hit him right here
on the pressure point.
Do you know why
we're gonna do that?
- [Zeke] Because it
will only knock him out?
- [Ray] Exactly.
All right, you ready?
- [Zeke] Yeah.
(tense music)
- Your hair looks so nice
pushed back like that.
Why will you never
wear it that way?
It's okay, it's okay.
- Are you gonna kill me?
- I'm gonna ask you a question,
and I'm only gonna ask it once.
Will you come inside
the deep room with us?
- Untie me.
Untie me.
Untie me!
- Okay.
After a short procedure.
Zeke, would you get those tools?
- [Zeke] Yes, Mommy.
- Don't be afraid.
Thank you.
I'll walk you through it.
I'll be performing
a procedure called
a transorbital lobotomy.
I will carefully force
an instrument through
your eye socket to
pierce the thin bone
between your frontal
lobes and your eyes.
In the frontal lobe, I
will then sever connection
between the pre-frontal
cortex and your thalamus,
rendering you a bit
more complacent.
- [Zeke] What's complacent?
- More agreeable.
- What the fuck are
you talking about?
- I don't want you to
have to make this decision
on your own, so I'm
making it for you.
- Help!
Untie me, untie me,
untie me, untie me
untie me, untie me, untie me!
Untie me you fucking cunt!
(tense music)
(breathing heavily)
I love you and I'm sorry.
Hey, we can work this out.
It doesn't have to,
we can...
Don't you love me?
I'm sorry.
I don't love you.
I don't love you.
I wasn't ready for a kid.
I don't want a kid.
I don't want your kid.
I thought that might change.
It didn't change (mumbling).
I'm sorry I forced you to do it,
but I'm glad you didn't keep it.
(tense music)
- Okay.
Zeke, hold his head back.
- No, no, no, no, no, no,
no, no, no, no, no, no, no!
No, no, no, no, no,
no, no, no, no, no Ray!
No, no, no, no, no,
no, no, no, no, no!
No, no, no, no, no!
Don't you want a man like me
(mellow bluesy music)
'Cause I make you happy
Just as happy as you can be
- I don't think it worked, kid.
I don't think it worked.
Can you bring him
inside like this?
- We can, but it
won't work like that.
- Why not?
- Because for the room to work,
you have to want to go in.
- So what happens if
you bring him inside?
(tense music)
(melancholy music)
Do you understand?
- Okay.
- [Ray] Okay, I need
you to understand.
I need you to say
it after me, okay?
I will never do that again.
- I will never do that again.
- [Ray] I promise.
- I promise.
- [Ray] I'm not mad,
I just, you can never
grab Mommy there again.
We need to be on the same team,
and to we each talk and we
each have our boundaries
and it's just important that
you understand that, okay?
- Okay.
- [Ray] Okay, thank you, I,
I appreciate that, I just--
- Can I go to my room?
- [Ray] Yeah.
(breathing heavily)
(blowing raspberries)
Zeke, lunch is ready.
(mellow rock music)
Is Laurie there
I'd like to speak
to her please
For a minute
And say
I'm headin' home
I'm fed up to here
With the short side
Of being alone
Tossers stole
All my money
Stomped on my pride oh yeah
Going down for
the third time
Here in Salt Lake City
So I'm callin'
While there's time
to turn the tide
Is Laurie there
I gotta talk to her now
Go and get her
Hi babe
It's me
It's sure good to
hear your voice
I can't tell ya
How much I missed ya
Thought about ya
I've run out of schemes
That'll win me blue ribbons
And I've worn out my dreams
On the life I've been livin'
All I got left
Is the love
That I'm givin' to you
I'm comin' home
(birds chirping)
(tense melancholy music)
(tense eerie music)
