I'll be ready [whenever you fear.]
No, don't you fear I'll be ready forever and always, I'm always here -Help! There's a shark out here! It was huge.
Help him up.
Get him up, Summer.
-Matt, hurry up, there's a shark coming right at you.
Matt! Matt! -Summer, help! -Matt! -Summer! Help me! Matt! I've been having these nightmares about sharks.
It's crazy, I've never been afraid of sharks.
-Well, maybe those sightings off of point dumas re-triggered them.
-No, they started before that.
I haven't had a full night's sleep in a month.
-Matt, why didn't you say something sooner? -I thought they would stop.
But instead, they're getting worse.
Last night, the shark actually got me.
You tried to help, but you couldn't.
-Gwen, you only have one problem, you're a total mess.
You don't know how to dress, you never do anything with your hair.
You just don't seem to care.
Of course I care, Mattie.
Why do you have to be so mean? -I'm your sister, Gwen.
No one is going to be this honest with you.
Oh, Gwen.
Gwen, you're never going to get a man the way that you are.
-I'll show you, sister dear.
You're not the only one who can get a man.
Excuse me? -Yeah? -I wondered if you could tell me what that flag means.
-Well, it's a warning flag.
It means there's a dangerous rip today.
Be careful.
-Well, then I think I'll just stick right here on the sand, because I'm not a very good swimmer.
-My name is Gwen.
-What? -Nothing, just I'm Gwen, that's all.
-Oh, that's short for Guinevere, right? Well, Guinevere, be sure you put on plenty of sunblock today.
Don't wanna get you sunburned.
Here's to a great vacation.
- Cheers, baby.
-I'm gonna have to ask you to put the beer away.
-Why? We're not going swimming.
-We are over 21.
-Do you want to see our ids? -I'm not a bartender, I'm a lifeguard, and I've got a job to do.
-Okay, we'll put them away.
-Thank you.
- Help! Help me! Help! Help! Please help me! Help! -Help! -Help us! Help! Help me! -Okay.
-Help! -I gotcha, relax.
Cough it up, come on.
- You'll be alright.
-He's alright.
-Breathe, you just gotta lie here a minute.
-Here's your glasses.
-Thank you, lady Guinevere.
-That was the most amazing thing I've ever seen.
You saved their lives.
-Well, they weren't as smart as you.
They didn't ask what that flag meant.
-But you, you made a difference.
If you hadn't been there, she'd be dead.
-"She"? - I mean he, I mean them.
-It's okay.
So are you from out of town? -Mm-hmm.
-My sister and I are traveling across country in our trailer, see? It's something that we've always wanted to do together.
-A trailer? Must be pretty tight to spend that much time together.
-My sister and I are very close.
-Wow, that was really great.
-You were incredible out there.
You've done your good deed for today, can we go now? -No, girls, look, I am a lifeguard.
I'm on duty.
I can't-- -you have to come with us.
-I can't come with you.
I'm a lifeguard, I'm on duty, so leave it.
-Oh, you're closing up? I had my heart set on a swim.
-Well, I wouldn't recommend it.
The Santa anas are bringing in a pretty big swell.
The rips are gonna be pretty heavy.
-What would you recommend? I'm from out of town.
-That depends on what you like to do.
-I like to meet new people.
My name is Mattie brown.
-I'm Mitch Buchannon.
You wouldn't happen to have a sister named Gwen, would you? -Yes, Gwen.
Have you met her? -Yeah, earlier today.
She said you two are traveling around the country in a trailer.
Sounds like fun.
-Would be if Gwen wasn't such a drag.
I can't believe I'm stuck on this whole trip with her.
Listen, why don't you come by our trailer when you've finished whatever you have to do here? -No, I don't think so.
-Please? We'll cook you dinner.
It would make Gwen's whole trip to have someone like you come and have dinner with us.
-Sounds great, but I've got plans tonight.
-Tomorrow night, then.
Please? It'll be fun, I promise.
We're strangers from a strange land, and you can tell us what we can see and do here.
-Great, that's our trailer over there.
-Alright, I'll see you there tomorrow night.
-Maybe before, are you here tomorrow? -I'll be here.
-Then so will I.
-Well, have a nice night, and say hi to Guinevere for me.
tells me you're going diving in a shark cage.
-Don't try to talk me out of this, Summer.
The only way I'm gonna stop these nightmares is if I face my fear.
-Well, then I am going with you.
-Summer, I have to do this alone.
-No, you don't, Matt.
Look, I'm here for you.
I couldn't help you in your nightmare, but I can help you now.
Come on.
Do you have to do that? -You wanna see sharks, don't ya? -Let's get on with this.
-You're the boss.
Be careful.
-Matt! Grab the rope, he's drifting! Help me grab the rope! No.
Get me out! Help me! Get me out of here! Help me! Matt! -Hey, Matt.
Hey, what's wrong? -I had another nightmare.
Last night was the worst one.
-What happened? -I was in the shark cage, you were there on a boat, and you fell into the water.
I tried to get you but i-- -so, this time a shark attacked me, right? -I couldn't get out of the cage.
-It's not about sharks, Matt.
These nightmares are about us.
-Us? What are you talking about? -Our relationship.
-Summer-- -you feel trapped, caged.
-I do not.
-Matt, being with me is what is frightening you.
-That's crazy.
-Matt, these nightmares began as soon as we started getting serious.
Look at the symbolism, it's obvious.
You're afraid to make a commitment to me.
It's not fair, Mattie.
I saw Mitch first, he likes me.
He called me lady Guinevere.
Well, it doesn't matter what he called you, because he's coming here to be with me.
Because I'm pretty and because I'm exciting to be with.
-Look, I might not be glamorous and exciting like you, Mattie.
But that doesn't mean that I shouldn't be here, too.
One look at you, Gwen, and he'd leave.
You're pathetic! I don't want to hear you and I don't want to see you! You always take everything away from me.
Everything, even mama's love.
Don't you start sobbing! Do you hear me? I hate you! You are so weak! I'm gonna get Mitch.
Mitch is gonna be mine, all mine.
And you'd better not interfere.
You're the one who's interfering, Mattie.
Yeah, you are.
But I'm gonna stop you.
I'm gonna stop you this time.
-Morning there, my lady, how are ya? -Well, I thought maybe you would have something to put on this.
-I fell on the rocks.
-That's nasty, come on, come on, I'll help you out.
Tell you what.
Why don't you jump in the chair and put your leg up? I'll fix that up in a jiffy.
Okay, okay.
Now, this is gonna sting a little bit, alright? There you go.
You know, your sister Mattie came by, yesterday, and invited me to dinner.
Is that still happening? -Yes, but Mattie won't be there.
-No? -Well, she may come late.
She still wanted you to come.
You'll come still, right? I mean, we cooked dinner and everything.
-Sure, I wouldn't miss it.
Believe me, I'm starved.
Okay, that should do it.
-Well, I'd better go and get everything ready.
An hour okay? -Hour's fine, all I gotta do is change and shower.
Alright? -Okay.
See ya.
Bye, thank you.
-Bye-bye, see ya.
-Coming, just a minute.
Hi, come on in.
-Let me take your jacket for you.
You're so wet.
-They say it never rains in Southern California.
-I love the rain, especially when it's warm and cozy inside.
-Gwen couldn't make it tonight.
-Oh, well, Gwen told me you couldn't make it.
-When it comes to entertaining men, Gwen is a basket case.
I hope you like lamb chops.
-Well, I don't eat much red meat, but I love lamb chops.
-Good, I'm glad you came.
Why don't we have a drink? -Before dinner, hm? -Sure.
-I hope you like red wine.
-You do? Good.
-It's really coming down.
-I know, I love it.
There you go.
To dreams coming true.
Why don't you sit down? Sit down, and I'll fix dinner up.
Just sit down, relax, enjoy your wine, okay? -Okay, thanks.
-I was thinking that after dinner, I could turn on some music and that we could dance.
I love to dance.
Do you like to dance? -Yeah, sometimes.
Are you sure Gwen's not gonna be upset about all this? -When isn't Gwen upset? Gwen doesn't know how to have a good time.
But enough about Gwen, you know? Tonight is about us.
To new friends.
-I'm not much of a drinker, but-- -Just relax, Mitch.
Enjoy the wine.
See, you're fine.
Don't do it, Mattie.
Don't take him there.
Shut up.
You never know what to do.
It's condemned, Mattie.
That place is dangerous, please don't do this.
You're weak, Gwen.
That's why you need me.
You're nothing without me.
I don't want you here, leave me alone.
I'm here, Gwen.
I'm here to stay and there's nothing you can do about it.
-Don't worry, Mitch, I'm gonna take such good care of you.
We're together now and no one is gonna bother us.
-What the hell? Help! Help! Help! Hey! Hey! Hey! What's going on here? -Good morning.
-Where am I? What the hell's going on? -Oh, I hope you slept well.
-What are you doing? -I made you such a wonderful breakfast.
Are you hungry? You must be.
I'm gonna put it right here.
-Mattie, you gotta get me out of here.
The tide's coming in.
That's the water line.
I'll drown, now you gotta get me out of here! -Whenever you're ready to eat, you go ahead, okay? -What? Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Set one buoy here and the other 20 yards north.
-You sure you want to go in the water? There's a shark out there.
-I'm not afraid of sharks, remember? Just relationships.
Okay, Summer.
-You don't have to wait, we'll swim in.
-Okay, be careful.
Don't go on! Move to the left.
-Matt! Matt! -Summer! Barnett! -Matt! -Summer! -Matt! -Get out of the way, get out of the way.
-Help me.
Barnett, we gotta get Matt out of there, there's a shark.
Hurry, Matt! -Matt, swim! Hurry up! -Come on, Matt! Matt, are you okay? Are you okay? Matt, you saved me from a shark.
-Pinch me.
-Why? -I want to know if this is a dream.
Ow, I guess this is a real one.
What are you doing here, Gwen? Mattie, where is Mitch? What have you done with him? - I'm in the basement! - Help me! Help me! I'm going into the basement, Mattie, and you cannot stop me.
Are you gonna try and save him from drowning? You are so useless! You can't save anyone, Gwen.
Remember what happened the last time you tried to save someone from drowning? - Shut up! - Shut up! Shut up! It wasn't my fault.
I tried.
-What are you doing? -You gotta get me out of here! The tide's coming in.
I'll drown.
Get me out of these handcuffs! -Gwen would let you drown, not me.
I'm a victim too, Mitch.
All of this is because of her.
-Gwen? -Gwen isn't here! Forget about her! Forget about Gwen.
-I want to talk to Gwen! Where is she? -Gwen can't take care of you.
Gwen can't even take care of herself! -Who did Gwen try to save? -I thought you cared about me.
Not Gwen.
-I care about Gwen! Who couldn't she save? Who couldn't Gwen save, Mattie? Who couldn't she save? Mattie.
Mattie? -Gwen.
-Gwen! -Mattie! Mattie! -Guinevere, help me! -Who couldn't Gwen save, Mattie? -No, no, no, no.
Guinevere, my lady.
-Oh, my god.
Are you okay? -You can help me.
I've got handcuffs on here.
There's a key, and it's gotta be in a pocket.
Mattie probably put it in a pocket.
Check your pockets.
-Mama, I tried to save Mattie, I tried.
- I tried to save her.
-You couldn't save her, but you can save me.
Come on, you can do it.
Look in your pockets.
Come on, my lady.
Come on, come on.
Yeah, come on.
Come on.
Yeah, give it to me.
Come on, give them to me.
Come on, Gwen.
-Mitch, I tried to save her.
I tried to save her, do you understand? I tried.
-It's all right.
-I tried! I tried to save her! - I understand.
It's all right, it's all right.
Mattie's dead, it wasn't your fault.
Look at me, you saved me.
You saved me.
You've got to let Mattie go.
You've got to let her go.
You've got to let her go.
-Oh, my god, no, no.
-It's okay, it's okay.
Gwen, it's okay.
They're gonna give you the help you need.
You know, you saved my life.
-Mattie was everything to my mama.
I had to keep her alive.
-It wasn't your fault.
Her death was an accident.
-I guess I need to start believing that.
When I get well, can I come and see you? -You'd better.
Come on now.
-It's okay.
-Excuse me, gentlemen.
Would you mind turning on the radio, please? - What? - Radio? No problem.
-I just love to dance.
How about you fellas?
