Zoey to the Max (2015) Movie Script

Hey, Big Red...
We in position, man.
we just waiting on the target.
Don't worry, buddy...
I got this.
Big Red wants us to pick up the dog
while he's with the dog trainer...
...instead of
with that pesky sheriff.
So, we gonna do it right now.
Think we can take him?
I think we can take him, yeah.
He seems like a wimp.
Like a real wimp.
Limp noodle, yeah.
There he is, man!
Let's go!
Yo, yo, yo!
-Hey, Copacabana!
-What's up?
What's up, brother?
Give me the dog!
Get back!
Get off me!
Go on!
Go on!
Let's go!
Let's get the hell out of here,
Hollywood Bl
Los Angeles
1/2 Mile
I can only do so much, Zo.
You have a closet
full of nice clothes...
...and you insist on wearing rags.
And you wonder why
it's hard to make friends.
Zoey doesn't want
to look like everybody else.
She's an original.
I call it sloppy.
Zo, go inside and
put something nice on.
Why are you so hard on her?
She's a good kid.
She's a little different.
Go easy on her for a change.
I've been going easy on her.
Maybe that's the problem.
I don't know what to do here,
David. I'm losing it.
Maybe you could just be
a little more patient with her.
She's only been with us
for a little while.
It hasn't been easy for her and
she's starting fresh...
...at a new school.
You ready to go?
That's okay.
I think I'll walk.
How are you?
You're a big guy,
aren't you?
Listen up, please,
it's time to focus.
I don't think
we've had the pleasure.
I'm Amber and you are...
My name's Zoey.
Well, I just wanted to
let you know that...
...if you like, I could take you
shopping for some...
...new clothes sometime.
If we're lucky, we might even find
something cute for you to wear.
So I can look like you?
No, thanks, I think I'll pass.
Watch yourself, freakshow!
Getting on my bad side is bananas.
Do we have a problem?
No problem here, Mrs. Carol.
Hey, I'm sorry
we got off to a bad start.
I think I might have come off
a little cray cray...
...and that's totes
not the real me.
That's okay.
...I feel horrible about earlier.
Why don't you let us
give you a ride?
It's the least I could do.
No, really, it's okay.
I'd like to walk.
Get in.
We don't bite.
Come on, get in the car.
Okay, we're just gonna run in
and grab some gummy blue sharks...
...and a monster Slurp.
What do you want?
I'll just take water.
That's it?
It's all right.
We'll just be a sec.
Okay. Make a right on 4th street
and take the bridge to downtown.
We can park the car and
hide behind the Lone Star Bakery.
What are you guys talking about?
What did you guys do?
We might have taken
a few things without paying.
It's so not a big deal.
Not a big deal?
Let me out of the car!
-Don't leave.
-Seriously, let me out of the car!
Pull over.
Wait, my backpack!
My backpack! Wait!
Wait! No.
Not yet.
Finally on the road, but
I have to go out to Bakersfield.
Should be able to make it
to Palm Springs by morning...
...if I drive straight through.
A government bill to crack down...
...on laboratory experiments
on animals is expected...
...to become law today.
Palm Springs
That's such a cute dog!
What's his name?
He's so cute.
How old is he?
He's 15.
He's a little shy.
He's a big boy.
Hey, who are you?
-Yeah, you come over here...
...you start petting Jason's dog.
What do you think you're doing?
That'll cost you five bucks.
You have five bucks?
-No, no, no...
I wasn't trying
to interrupt you guys.
I just saw the dog
and he was so cute...
It's okay, kid.
I'm just messing with you.
It's all right.
That's Jason's dog.
You got to be careful, though.
Diego's a little snappy.
And that's Butch.
Who are you?
I'm Zoey.
Hey, Zoey.
I'm Dale.
What are you doing here?
I was just wondering,
exactly where are we?
Where are we?
-Like what town are we in?
-What town you're in?
Yeah, you're in Palm Springs.
How do you not know
where you're at?
Wait, we're in Palm Springs?
Yeah, you're in Palm Springs.
Where did you think you were?
Are you all right?
-Yeah, no, I'm fine.
Okay, don't worry about it.
Listen, Butch,
you got five bucks?
Let's go get this kid
something to drink.
Kid, you want some water,
or something to drink?
Yeah, that'd be nice.
Thank you.
Crap, my ring.
Where are you going?
Well, no luck contacting
your parents yet.
We should hear
something soon, yeah.
So, is there anything else
you can tell me?
So, what's with all the stuff?
You know, the rifles...
...and the western things?
I'm sort of a collector, I guess.
I love the old western movies.
They used to shoot a lot out here.
Wow, that's pretty cool.
Running away from L.A.
That's pretty dangerous.
Is that your wife?
Yeah, that's the missus.
She's really pretty.
Well, thank you.
I mean, she thanks you.
You guys look really happy.
Hey, you hungry?
Would you like
to have something to eat?
Sure, yeah, I'm actually starving.
Good, so am I.
See what I can rustle us up.
But after we eat...
...we need to get back
to those questions.
Hey, what's going on
up there, Cliff?
I said...
What'd you say?
Move your...
I said what the heck
is going on up here, man?
Just doing the oil.
I asked you to check the tires.
You got no idea
what you're doing, do you?
Man, what was I thinking?
Asking you
to do something with the car.
Did I really do that?
I should have asked you
to build a spaceship...
...that'd take us up
to the moon, man.
Probably would have
taken you less time.
Forget about it, all right?
We got bigger problems.
-Hi there.
Hi, honey. I'm sorry. I didn't
realize you had company.
Samantha, this is Zoey.
Zoey, Samantha.
-Hi, Zoey.
Zoey. What a pretty name.
I'm Samantha,
but you can call me Sam.
Yeah, you can call her Sam.
Everybody gets to call her Sam,
but I have to call her Samantha.
Poor you. He does have to
call me Samantha, sorry.
Anyway, I'll let you guys
go about your business.
What is that?
Tacos? And fries?
-Yeah, lunch, I guess.
I'm sorry. I'm going to apologize
for my husband's...
...lack of lunch skills.
-What? It wasn't that bad.
It was pretty good, wasn't it?
-Yeah. It was really, really good.
-Wasn't it?
You should not make
a habit of that, okay?
Hey, Sheriff,
you have a call on line two.
All right, thanks, Dan.
I'll take it out there.
I won't be long.
-Oh, all right. Well...
Don't worry about us girls.
We'll be all right.
Did you really like the food?
-You did?
Yeah, hello, this is Tom Jenkins.
Fine, thank you. How are you?
Yeah, we have a young lady here...
13 years of age,
name of Zoey Manning.
She's a runaway we picked up
this morning out of L.A.
I've been trying to locate
the parents all morning...
...but I haven't had any luck,
and we thought for sure...
...they would have
reached out to LAPD...
...or the Sheriff's
Department by now...
...but no.
All right, I'm gonna go back under.
When I say so, take that oil...
...pour it in the oil tank
because this baby's bone dry.
Maybe I can find out
where that leak's coming from.
-Easy peasy, Bud.
-Yeah, easy peasy!
Okay, all right.
You my man!
All right, get in position.
-Let her rip.
Come on,
we're running out of time!
If we don't get that dog...
...Big Red's not going to give us
the money.
Someone else is gonna get it...
...and we're gonna be
some poor dudes, all right?
So, listen...
You better run, son!
So, how long have you
two been together?
We have been married for 10 years,
but we've been together for 13.
...you guys must
really love each other.
We do really love each other.
He's a good man.
I mean,
he puts up with my bossiness.
What about you?
Do you have a boyfriend yet?
No, no, no.
I don't have time for boys.
Well, you don't need
to worry about that right now...
...because you have the rest
of your life to think about boys.
What about your parents?
Are they together still or...
I don't know.
They're my foster parents.
I put a call in to
Children Services but...
...you guys at Social Services are
the first ones to get back to me.
All right...
...okay, well, yeah...
If I hear anything myself...
I'll get back in touch with you.
Thank you.
She's so adorable.
Yeah, I know, right?
Why do you think
she would run away?
I don't know.
I asked her...
...but she didn't want to
talk about it.
I got calls
in to Social Services...
...but they haven't heard
anything yet.
Apparently, the parents
aren't in any rush to find her.
It's getting late. What if you
don't hear from someone?
I don't know. It might take
some time to sort out.
Apparently, she's not the only
runaway L.A. is dealing with today.
-What does that mean?
-Well, it means...
We might have to find somewhere
to put her until we sort it out.
I don't know, maybe Rancho Mirage
has better accommodations for her.
No, no, no.
There is no way that little girl...
...is staying in a cell tonight.
No way.
it's a little trickier than that.
All right.
Well, this is home for tonight,
and this is Mr. Max.
Hi, big boy!
You're such a big boy!
He's so big.
He loves his daddy, doesn't he?
-What's his name?
Max! Maxy, Maxy!
Come on in. I want to show you
the house before dinner.
Wow, this is really nice here.
I'm glad you like it.
Here are some sheets.
I'll get you some blankets...
...in case you get cold tonight...
...and there's a guest bathroom
at the end of the hall...
...that has a new toothbrush
and whatever else you need.
Thank you again for letting me
stay here.
The jail cell wouldn't have been
too much fun.
And thank you
for being so nice to me.
Yeah, that jail cell
is not for you...
...and you can stay here
as long as you want,...
...until things get sorted out.
Okay. I appreciate that.
Not most people would take in
a stranger in their home.
It seems like you've
been going through a lot...
...and Tom and I like to help
people out when we can.
That's how we got Max.
You found Max?
Technically, he found us.
See, it was this stormy night.
About three in the morning,
we hear this whimpering...
...and this scratching
at the back door.
-It was Max?
-It was Max.
And we've had him ever since.
That's so cool.
He's so lucky to have found you.
And it turns out
he has these great blood lines...
...so he's been competing
in these dog shows...
...and winning every one.
Can you believe that?
Whoa. Every one?
-Wow, that's awesome.
I know. And then
there's this Desert Classic...
...coming up in a couple weeks...
...and people think he's going to
beat out the five-time champ, Thor.
Well, of course he is.
Anyway, you get settled in
before dinner, okay?
-All right.
-Thank you.
-You're welcome.
Hon, dinner's ready.
Well, this looks amazing.
-All right, shall I?
Lord, bless this food
to its intended use...
...and us to your service
in your name we ask this, amen.
-Hey big boy.
-Here's trouble.
-Honey, this is delicious.
So, have you heard
from anyone yet?
No, not yet, but that
could change tomorrow.
Could change in a second.
So, what do we do tomorrow?
we go down to the station...
...and we wait until somebody
calls, and we keep following up.
I was hoping maybe I could
take Zoey to the shop tomorrow...
...and you can call us
if you hear anything.
Yeah, that'll work.
And Max too?
Yeah, I don't think we can
go anywhere without Max now.
No, we can't.
He's like, "I want your food."
This is Tom Jenkins.
Is that right?
All right, thank you.
Hey, I got some news.
Can you talk?
Hi, there.
Anything I can help you with?
No, I'm just looking.
Hi, Tom.
Hi, Dan.
Hey, Zoey.
Hey, Max.
No, don't get up.
Don't get up, boy.
Hi, Dan.
Hey, Zoey.
How are you doing?
It's about Zoey?
Child Services finally heard
from the parents.
They want to give her back.
Already started the process.
-That poor girl.
So, I got to thinking...
Why don't we just take her?
I mean, I talked to the woman
from Child Services.
She walked me through the whole
thing, showed me how it could work.
She even said she could
help make it happen.
And I know that Zoey's only been
with us for a short time...
But we all seem to
get along right?
-And we were always gonna do...
...this someday.
-You want to do this?
I would love to.
Oh, my god.
Do you think she would want to?
I don't know.
I guess we have to ask.
She's so cute!
Family Services got a call
from your parents.
And I'm really sorry...
...but they just didn't feel like
it was a good fit for them.
Hey, it's gonna be okay.
No, it's not okay.
It's never okay.
Wait, wait!
There's more...
...all right?
So, Sam and I were talking...
...and we've really enjoyed
having you with us...
...and we were wondering
if you'd like to come stay.
-For good.
-Like my new family?
Would you like that?
Wait, really?
What do you say?
Would you like that?
-Yes, I'd love that.
-Wait, really?
-Are you serious?
-Oh, my god, yes.
Thank you, guys.
-There you go.
-Thank you.
So, over here is the drama area.
This is the quad
where everybody kind of hangs out.
Over there is the gym.
And then...
Hey, guys...
This is Zoey.
She's gonna be a new student here.
-Hi, Zoey.
Great shirt. I love Moon Rocket.
Hey. hey.
You're the new girl, right?
Cool. Where are you from?
No wonder you have
such great taste in music.
Thanks. I really love the eighties.
Me, too. Finally someone
with some good taste.
I'm Maddie.
-I'm Zoey.
Nice to meet you. Stick with me,
and you'll be okay.
So, how was your first week?
It was great.
Everybody is so nice here.
Give it time. Someone will
eventually get on your nerves.
Where are you going?
-Home, I guess.
-You must be the new girl.
I'm Zoey.
-I'm Zack.
So, still coming by tomorrow?
What are you doing tomorrow?
Nothing. Why?
A group of us are going down
to the tracks tomorrow morning.
You should come.
What's the tracks?
It's a cool place we hang out.
We skateboard, play volleyball...
Listen to music.
You'd like it.
All right.
That sounds so cool.
So, I'll see you there.
You'll be there too, right?
Yeah, I'm gonna come.
Maddie, still want a lift?
Okay, I'll see you then.
Around ten?
Just take Palm all the way north,
past 14th street.
You can't miss it.
-Okay. Bye.
So, have you seen her before?
Thank you for giving me this...
...beautiful family.
And Max.
I mean, I promise
to do everything I can...
...to not screw this up.
Smart kid. She was cute.
What? It's true.
There she is. Hey.
-How did it go today?
-That's fantastic.
You're on a roll.
Yes, I'm really loving it.
Everyone's so nice and friendly.
I might have to pinch myself.
What's not to like?
You're an original.
I thought maybe you could
come work at the shop with me.
If you wanted to.
Just part time here and there,
because I need an extra hand.
And I thought you could use
a little extra shopping money.
Yeah. I'd love that!
-You would?
Okay, why don't we start
tomorrow morning?
It's Saturday.
It's gonna be busy.
-Okay, deal.
-All right.
Oh, wait.
I made plans...
...to go hang out with some
friends at school.
You're going down to
the tracks already.
How did you know
I was going to the tracks?
I'm the sheriff.
I know everything.
It's where all the kids go.
It's a lot of fun.
Be careful.
I will...
So, what's
it's like being a foster kid?
It's been hard, I guess.
I can't even, like, imagine.
What's the longest you've ever
stayed with someone?
A few years,
but that was when I was younger.
Ever since then I've been kind of
bouncing around from home to home.
How long were you
with your last family?
Eight months.
So, what about now?
With Tom and Samantha?
You know, I'm loving it.
I wound up here almost like...
...it was for a reason
for us to be together.
Samantha and Sheriff Tom are great.
Yeah, they are.
The whole town
really respects them.
And I'm not sure exactly
what happened...
...but I think they have had
trouble having kids in the past.
Yeah, yeah...
Tom's great and Samantha's amazing.
I love being around them.
And Max is truly a gift.
I just hope I don't screw it up.
You won't. I won't let you.
Besides, if you leave...
...who am I gonna have to listen
to Moon Rocket with?
Ride with me home?
Thank you.
Yeah, sure.
They're so beautiful.
Is that why you like them so much?
I love the way they look...
...but I also love that
they're so resilient.
They're very tough.
They're also kind of weird looking.
That's what gives them their charm.
-Hey, man!
-We're working here, dude!
Come on, get serious.
I'm hungry.
My mama said
I was born with a deficiency.
A deficiency? No way.
Just one?
Just cut the chatter
and give me the info, man.
Yeah, this is the place,
right here, okay?
And remember,
we're just here for the dog...
...so stay away from the register.
Got it.
Just the dog.
What kind of dog is it, anyway?
Hopefully it's the kind of dog
that will bite your head off, man!
It's a black Lab.
I told you five times!
Why do you gotta be like that?
You're downright mean.
It's a big job, Cliff, okay?
It's a big job, all right?
And Big Red's not gonna be happy...
...if we go screwing it up.
So, I need you to...
Oh, man!
Cliff, what's the matter
with you, man?
We're working a job here
and you're squirting mustard on me?
I swear, dude, out of all the
small-town crooks in the world...
...I get stuck with you.
All right, on my cue,
we go in, get the dog...
...and we bounce, all right?
Big Red's waiting on us,
so let's be quick about this.
In a few hours we should be...
...cashing some big-time money.
I'm pretty hungry.
How about you?
I'm starving.
I'll run down the street
and get us some sandwiches.
No, I'll go. You stay here
and watch the shop, okay?
...I trust that you got this
under control.
What do you want?
Turkey okay?
Yeah, that's perfect.
I'll be back in a sec.
Let's do this.
Stupid mustard.
May I help you?
Well, as a matter of fact...
...you can.
Hold that thought.
Yeah, it's me.
We're here right now.
Yeah, Cat City, I heard you, man.
All right.
So, anything in particular
you're looking for?
We came for the dog!
-What? No, stop!
-No, stop it!
Come on!
Let's go, man!
Stop! You're hurting him!
-Grab the mutt!
-He's sandbagging me!
Come on, get the mutt!
No, don't take Max!
Please don't take Max! Please!
Stay right there,
you little snot nose!
Don't come after us,
or the dog's gonna get it.
-No, please!
-Yeah, yeah, he is.
Yeah, he is.
Let's go.
Go, go, go!
Lunch time!
Zoey, my god,
what are you crying for?
Hey, what happened?
These guys came in the shop
and stole Max.
Wait, hold on. Look at me.
Look at me. What happened?
I don't know,
these bad guys came in...
...and they stole Max.
They took him.
They took Max and not the money?
No, they didn't want money.
They only wanted Max.
Oh, my god.
Dan, please put Tom on.
No, it's never okay.
What have I done?
Zoey, what's going on?
I screwed up big time.
They stole Max,
and I let them take him.
Did you call the police?
Sheriff Tom?
No. Don't you understand?
It's my fault.
They trusted me.
I finally found something
special in my life...
...and I screwed it up.
It's not your fault.
You couldn't have done anything.
-That's why no family wants me.
I'm bad luck.
I can't do a single thing right.
You know what, that's it!
I'm out of here.
-No, no, no.
Help me find my stuff.
What stuff?
Buddy, you want a little bite?
You want a little piece?
You want a little piece?
That was the rest of my sandwich!
Hey, could you
two stop screwing around?
Get your act together,
you and the mutt. Come on!
-No. Where could she have gone?
Check this out.
Maddie, this is nuts.
Do I even want to know?
Come on, let's get to work.
What do you remember?
Lay it on me.
What do you mean?
What they looked like,
what they said...
...anything that could be a clue.
I don't know.
It all happened so quickly.
What stands out?
There has to be something.
One of them had a phone call, and
they said something about a cat...
...or a cat and a city...
Cat City. That's Cathedral City.
-Yes, that's it!
-That's perfect!
It's a start at least.
We'll get over there, ASAP, and
check all the pet shops in town.
Just in case. Do you have
a picture of Max on your phone?
-Of course I do. Let's go!
-Wait, one last thing.
-Okay, let's go.
We should probably head home.
There's nothing more
we can do from here.
I just don't know why
she just ran out like that.
I mean, she was really shaken up.
Did she say anything else?
No, she just said two guys
came in and took Max.
I should have done something.
-Hey, no, no.
There's nothing more
you could have done.
The kid's been through a lot.
She probably didn't
know how to react.
She'll be fine.
I hope that she and Max are okay.
I'm sure they're both okay...
...and we're gonna them home
safe and sound.
Hey, it's Big Red.
Yeah, we got him,
but we got a little problem...
...so it's gonna
cost you a little extra now.
Hey, don't blame me, baby.
The market dictates the price...
...and the price of
this little canine just went up.
No, Big Red, please don't hang up!
No, okay, okay. I'm sorry.
Okay, we'll take it.
All right, bye...
Good work, Bud.
You got us more money.
No, I didn't get us
more money, Cliff...
...because there ain't no more
money to get.
But it's cool.
By this time tomorrow...
...we'll be good to go
on money for a while.
Big boy, come here.
Come here. Come here.
Cliff! I don't know who's smarter,
the mutt or you.
It's definitely a toss-up.
Get the collar on the dog.
We need to get out of here.
What's wrong?
We're getting nowhere.
I think we should just split up.
Good idea.
No, I'll take North Rim
up here, okay?
Okay, I'll double back. We can
talk to each other with these.
Wait, one thing.
Thank you.
-All right.
Hi. Have you seen this dog?
His name is Max.
No, I'm sorry.
I haven't seen it.
Okay, thank you.
Have you seen
this dog anywhere?
Wait. I just saw a dog like that,
with two guys...
...get into an old beat-up
mustard-colored car.
-A mustard-colored car?
-Yeah, just a few minutes ago.
Right outside.
-Okay, thank you so much.
-Thank you.
-You're welcome. Good luck.
-Maddie, come in, over.
-Go for Mad Maddie, copy.
Mad Maddie?
This is Mad Maddie.
Who's got their ears on?
It's me, Zoey.
Who do you think it is?
I know it's you.
What do you got?
Someone said that
they saw Max...
...with two guys in a beat-up
yellow mustard-colored car.
Did you say "mustard-colored car"?
With two guys?
I'm watching them eat right now.
Okay, just tell me where you're at,
and I'll be right there, over.
Hey, what are they doing?
Nothing really.
One guy is eating.
He's a mess.
The other guy is
just sitting there.
He seems mad.
Get your game face on, man.
He's gonna be here
any second, you know?
We need to get that dog in the car.
Don't worry, Bud.
I'm cool as a cucumber.
Cool as a cucumber?
Don't screw this up.
You know,
if I didn't know any better...
...I'd say they were
waiting for something.
Or someone.
to meet with someone...
...to hand Max off to!
Oh, my...
Okay, we have to get over there.
Copy that, Dan.
We're heading east on 111.
You take one more pass
through Rancho Mirage...
...and then head down
to Cathedral City.
We'll meet you there.
-Tom, what are we gonna do?
We're gonna find them,
that's what we're gonna do.
Dan and I have reached out...
...to every department
in the entire valley.
Don't worry,
we'll bring them home.
Let's go.
Come on, buddy.
Go for a ride.
Go on.
That's him, man.
That's Big Red.
-I go with you, right?
-No, you stay here, man.
Make sure the dog don't fly away.
That's a nice hat.
All right, baby, showtime.
Good afternoon, Big Red.
How's it going, man?
Where's the dog?
You got it?
Calm down, big fella.
Yeah, he's right in there.
Don't ever tell me to calm down.
...where's the dog?
He's in the car right there.
You got the money?
Let's see the money, man.
-Who's that?
-Who's what? That's Cliff.
That girl. Who's that?
What's going on here, man?
I'm outta here!
I gotta go!
Hey, girl,
get back here right now!
-I'm outta here!
-Come on! Run!
-We'll meet back up at the bikes.
That's just a little girl.
Hey, Red, come on, baby.
We got a deal, right?
I'm your man.
I got the dog and...
Oh, no...
This is not good, man.
Hey, we gotta get those girls, man.
They got...
Find those kids now, man!
Quiet down back there, you mutt!
Come on!
You're such a good boy.
Yes, you are.
Stop baby-talking to him, man!
Forget this baloney!
Let's just go back to the hideout.
I'll call up Big Red,
smooth all this stuff over.
I need that money!
No, Maddie, we lost them!
What do we do?
Don't worry, Zo.
Check this out.
I was able to put
a tracker on their car...
...so now wherever they are,
we can track them with this.
-You're a genius, Maddie.
-So true!
So, what's the range on that thing?
I see that they're heading east...
...so we'd better get a move on.
Let's go, Maddie!
Where did she come from?
How did she find us?
How should I know?
Smart kid, huh?
Yeah, a smart little brat.
The little brat better not
come around again...
...if she knows
what's good for her.
According to my GPS,
this should be it.
Hey, that's Big Red. Not a
word out of your little mouth.
I heard you.
Mi, mi, mi!
Hello, this is Bud.
-Where's the dog, you stupid idiot?
Yeah, I get it, man.
-Where could they be?
-I don't know.
How was I supposed to know
she was following us?
Come on, over there.
No worries.
It's all good.
I got this under control.
We just need to calm down
and we can meet later tonight.
You can't meet tonight.
Are you kidding me?
No. Okay,
please don't hang up, Big Red.
I'm sorry, Big Red.
I said I'm sorry.
You the man.
What are they saying?
I don't know.
I have an idea.
Come here.
Yeah, I know where it is.
Okay, I'll see you...
We gotta wait
until the morning now...
That dirt lot across from the
Rainmaker statue on Palm Canyon.
I'm talking here!
-I heard you, Bud.
We gotta wait until tomorrow.
I guess I can wait one more day
to be a rich man.
-By a Rainmaker?
I think I know where that is.
Okay, tomorrow morning.
Now, what do we do?
I guess we just wait.
We're gonna find her, Samantha.
I know it.
Maddie, Maddie, wake up.
Maddie, wake up. We overslept.
Stop. What are you doing?
Get up. They're leaving.
-They're what?
-They're leaving.
They said something about...
-A dirt road and parking...
-The Rainmaker.
Okay, let's just go, go, go!
Run, run, run.
Wait, the backpack!
They're probably taking
off with Max!
-Go, run!
-No, Max!
No, Max!
-Zoey, grab the bikes!
Come on, Zoey!
Come on, Maddie.
Where is it?
Where is the mutt?
He's in the car.
Go, go, go!
Get down!
What are they doing?
I don't know.
They're already doing the hand-off.
Zoey, what are you guys doing here?
Oh, my god.
Dale, what are you doing here?
I saw you guys earlier.
What's going on here?
Who are these guys you're watching?
It's about time.
I wasn't sure you two knuckleheads
were gonna be able to pull it off.
Those guys are stealing my dog.
My dog's in that car.
You have a dog?
I thought you just got here.
Well, we delivered
as promised, right?
So, it looks like your dog, Thor...
...is gonna stay the champ
after all.
Seems to be case.
-Looks like Max's days of...
...winning dog shows are
a thing of the past.
Whatever we do,
we have to do it now.
-Now, we have to go now.
-Okay, okay, okay.
He's in the car?
Okay. We gotta get to the car
quickly. Come with me.
-But how?
-Stay down low.
Come on!
There it is.
No, not so quick!
Not until I get my dog.
Okay, guys, let's go!
It's okay, Max.
It's okay.
Chop chop.
Drive, drive, drive!
I gotta find the key.
I got it.
-Okay, Okay.
-Max, it's gonna be okay.
You guys are idiots, man!
We got them!
-They're gaining up on us!
What do we do?
-Give me a second.
This is Mad Maddie.
Who's got their ears on? Over.
-This is Deputy Dan.
-It's Dan!
Dan, it's me, Zoey.
Zoey, where are you?
We've been looking
everywhere for you.
Dan, we have Max.
He's in the car with us.
And there are
these really bad guys...
...and they're chasing us.
We can't keep them off for long.
Where are you?
We're headed on Indian Canyon
right now.
Okay. I'm on the Tramway,
about mile away from you.
If you're on Indian Canyon...
...try to turn left onto the train
tracks, and box them in, okay?
I'm right on their trail...
...just made a left on
Indian Canyon.
Let's try to box them in
at the old train station. Over.
-Copy that.
-Faster, Tom.
Oh, my god.
Who is that guy?
Hey, let me out.
Come on, I'm done with this.
You can keep your money.
-Shut up!
Hands in the air!
Do it now!
Where I can see them!
Right now!
You, don't move!
Put your hands on the wheel!
Out of the car, on the ground!
On the ground!
Are you okay?
Let's go! On the ground!
Move it!
Driver, hands on the car.
Don't even move.
Those were some pretty bad guys
you were mixed up with.
You're very lucky.
Why would you run out like that?
We're in this together.
I'm sorry.
It all happened so quickly.
I panicked.
Zoey, you do know
none of this was your fault, right?
Yeah, sweetie,
you have to understand that.
It could have just as easily
happened to me.
I'm so sorry.
It's just...
I've been given away...
...so many times...
...that I thought it was
going to happen again.
...that's not how a family works.
They stick together
through the good and the bad.
We'd never give you up.
We're a family now.
Zoey, we love you.
Can you guys do me a favor?
Sure, anything.
Pinch me.
Hey, Dale, wait.
I never got to say thank you
for all you've done.
It means so much
that you helped us out.
I don't know what
we would have done without you.
...I should be thanking you, Zoey.
I mean,
I haven't felt that alive in years.
That was a heck of an adventure...
...and that was a really
brave thing, what you did.
If it weren't for you...
...I don't think that little guy
would have made it.
I just think that it was time
for me to start digging in...
...and fighting for
what is important to me.
Max means the world to me.
You reminded me
that life's short...
...and I think it's time that
I found a new way to live.
I probably should make
something out of my life...
...at this point, you know?
-That's great.
What are you thinking?
I think old Dale has got one more
trick up his sleeve...
...so I'll figure it out.
I'm happy for you.
Well, I'd better get going...
...but good luck
on your new life.
Thank you, Zoey.
You, too.
It's a good town.
You're gonna have fun here.
So, do your parents, like,
hate me now?
No, not at all.
They were mad
that we stayed out all night...
...but the fact that we
did something good saved me.
They're letting me go to
the carnival this weekend...
...so it's not too bad.
I never got to say thank you.
For what?
For everything.
For believing in me.
Ten-four, good buddy.
-Hey there.
How's that booth coming?
It is all set up, thanks to Zoey.
-Good job.
There you are.
I was looking everywhere.
Hey, Maddie.
Hey, Sheriff.
Hey, Sam.
-Hey, Maddie.
-Come on, let's go.
No, I have to work the booth.
I'm sorry.
It's all right. I think we can
get it handled, can't we, Sam?
Yeah, we got it.
Have fun.
-Bye, Sheriff, bye, Sam.
Stay out of trouble!
That was so motherly of you.
-I'm trying.
-Yeah, you are.
-Are you Zoey?
-Yeah, I'm Zoey.
I heard about
what you did with the dog.
Everybody's talking about it.
I have to admit,
even I'm impressed.
Thanks. And you are?
I'm Tim. How would you feel about
taking on another job?
Are you ready to get back
in the game, or is it too soon?
A job?
What are you talking about?
My dog, Duncan,
got out the other night...
...and I'm thinking you might want
first crack at getting him back.
I could get you some cash
you know, for the effort.
No, thank you.
I think it was just a one time deal
but good luck on finding him.
Okay, your loss.
Guess I'll go to someone else.
Wait! Please help me find him.
You're my only hope.
Okay, give me all the details.
-Okay, so I just...
So, what happened?
I don't know.
He's just missing.
And his name is Duncan, right?
So here's what you need to do...
