"Plate from every state".
It's a little game my boy and I play in the car.
You gotta pass the time.
Oh, surely do, but oh, goodness, I hate to even ask you this.
What was that? It's just, my girl and I We're taking a little break from the internet.

TALK SHOW HOST: And what do we get in return? A slap in the face.
Somalis took what they needed when they needed it, and now that they're dug in, guess what, we don't even get a "thank you".
We sure as hell don't get a return on our investment.
If they put a prayer room in that new mall, folks, guess what [ENGINE RUMBLING.]
They're smart, these folks, and we've been stupid.
And now they're taking it all.
Not just our business either.
Our land.
They've been sweeping up old buildings - and property all around Salem's Lot for years.
- [INDISTINCT SHOUTING.]
TALK SHOW HOST: Grounds we've learned fell over decades 'cause of one old ghost story or another.

I'm moving to Abdi's new mall.
BILLY: You, too, you piece of shit? Keep the money.
Please, Ace, I pay what I owe.
ACE: Oh, no, Naji.
Please, keep it.
You're not going anywhere.
[FOREBODING MUSIC.]
[CONSTRUCTION TRUCKS BEEPING.]
ACE: [YELLING.]
Is that that piece of shit? Get the fuck out of my way.
Touch me again, you fucking rake! - Touch me again! - MAN: You need to step back.
Abdi, get the fuck out here! You fucking prick.
ABDI: Hey.
Looking to rent a stall? Get of your own shitty mall? We can help you with that.
We have friends and family rate.
You're not my fucking family, and you never were, you adopted piece of shit.
- Hey, hey, hey.
- Back up.
Back up.
ABDI: It's just business, right? That's what Pop taught me.
ACE: You know why you got this land? 'Cause no one else fucking wants it.
HASSAN: Haunted, right? Ghosts of the white people who used to live here? ABDI: Who were those? The witches or the slave owners? - ACE: Stop poaching my tenants.
- Hey, hey, hey.
Go back to your fucking car.

Mom? You give that landlord two lanes.
You understand? JOY: Why? He seems okay.
ANNIE: He's not.
After the accident, he didn't even charge us to tow the car.
Exactly.
Nothing's for free with a man like that, believe you me.
- Mom.
- Joy.
If you can't see how that dirty bird's been looking at us [SIGHS.]
I haven't taught you anything.
JOY: Are you okay? You seem a little you know.
This isn't about me.
You know, if if you're not feeling like yourself, you can tell me.
I just mean, you haven't had your medicine in a week, right? I'm getting more pills at the hospital today.
Don't you worry one little bit.
[LOCK CLICKS, HANDLE RATTLES.]
After I finish school stuff, can I go to the store? To get more drawing paper.
I got you some two towns ago.
We're not millionaires, Joy.
I don't know, I'm just I'm feeling a little cabin-fevery.
I haven't been out of the house in a week.
Little love [TENSE MUSIC.]
This town is not a good place.
Not just that dirty bird.
He's the roach you can see.
The rest are in the walls.
I've heard things.
Massacres.
Kids vanishing into thin air.
Okay, Mom.
ANNIE: Just a couple more days.
We'll get the car fixed good as new.
We'll be back on the road in no time.
JOY: To where? The Laughing Place, of course.
Where? Montreal, still? ANNIE: Why not? I need to get ready for my interview.
When I'm gone, you don't open up that door for anyone, understand? [BIRD CAWING.]
JAMAL: How many shifts are you after? How's April looking for you? ANNIE: Oh, I'm just passing through.
Your ad said you needed temp RNs.
Okay, you on any medications? - No.
- JAMAL: State screening.
Now even temp RNs have to list.
ANNIE: Oh, well, vitamin D.
JAMAL: Docs love to push the vitamin D, right? Okay, then, just need two forms of ID, Ms.
Ingalls.
Birth certificate.
It's a copy.
I hope that's okay.
[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC.]
NURSE: Nurses' station.
This is Eric.
JAMAL: Salem's Lot's we get all the greatest hits.
Appendicitis, vaccines, arrhythmias.
Intakes from Castle Rock, you're looking at 70-80% ODs.
All NARCAN all the time.
[MARKER SQUEAKING.]
Drugs are all in there.
Only docs and nurse practitioners have the passcode.
Seems like a lot of extra work.
Mm, new state regs 'cause of all the damn junkies.
[MONITOR BEEPING.]
EVELYN: Can I help you with something? Depakote, 125 for room three.

POP: You break it, you bought it.
ACE: Two more tenants leaving me early for Abdi's mall.
POP: Leaving you? That's a fucking mystery.
Who'd want to leave you? ACE: You could've put an end to this shit.
POP: Could I have? That fucking land Abdi got for a song and a handjob? That was imminent domain.
One call to the fucking state board, no new mall.
You could have stuck your dick in and ended this whole thing.
That what you want? Me sticking my dick in? Fuck, thought you wanted to be in charge.
You just served me up to him and the rakes.
Jesus Christ, Pop, you gotta tell Abdi, "Cut this shit out.
" - We're gonna lose everything! - "We"? No, the mall, your house, everything you fucking have, I gave you.
ACE: You gave me shit, I took what I deserved.
Remember, Sergeant Major? You'd be wise not to bring that up again.

Would you burn for me? Take my place at the stake? While I'm still awake? [HUMMING.]
Too loud? Oh, no, it's it's pretty.
It's a work in progress probably forever.
It's about witches.
Ah.
Like in The Wizard of Oz? CHANCE: Uh, yeah, but more like Satanists.
There used to be a bunch of them that lived around here like a million years ago.
Right.
CHANCE: Before they burned them all out.
JOY: Makes sense.
Probably witches buried right under our feet.
JOY: That's cool too.
CHANCE: You okay? You were in the accident, right? They said your mom didn't want an ambulance.
Uh, yeah, she she's a nurse, so CHANCE: It must have been the money.
They really fuck you on ambulances.

Oh, I don't know.
All over, I guess.
Um, but we're stranded here because of the crash.
You got any pictures? Your car must have been fucked up.
Oh, I don't have a phone.
[LAUGHS.]
VERA: Why not? Phones give you brain cancer.
Or, at least, that's what my mom says.
Man, you need a phone.
That's like the only good thing about this dump, is free wi-fi.

CHRIS: Ms.

You, uh, find a way out of Castle Rock, let me know.
ANNIE: Working on it.
Thought maybe you, uh, decided to stay.
- No.
- CHRIS: Oh.
Heard you picked up a shift or two over at Deville.
I'm, uh I'm friends with some of the docs.
Is the windshield in? Uh, no, ma'am, sorry.
I, uh I spoke to them this morning.
But, hey, I'll I'll tell Jeep no more business with them until it's here.
ACE: Local fucking news coming to watch them pour foundation at a construction site.
Fucking rakes pour a concrete floor, that's news? [INDISTINCT CHATTER.]
Hope Abdi falls in and fucking dies.
- There's some news I can use.
- Yeah.
ACE: Can I help you, 19? CHRIS: Pop said no more fucking with the Star Gazer guests.
ACE: She's got crazy in her eyes, that one.
Even her own daughter looks afraid of her.
CHRIS: She's a nurse, asshole.
A nurse whose fucking plates don't match her VIN.
So now you're the DMV? ACE: Trust me, she's running from something.
So what's that shit with Abdi? I thought you wanted to be left the fuck out of it? CHRIS: He's he's your fucking stepbrother.
Please don't do anything stupid.
Gosh.

- JOY: How do you know? - Because they live here.
- JOY: So do we! Not for long.
JOY: I don't know anyone except for you and and nobody knows me! But maybe we ended up here for a reason.
Maybe this is the Laughing Place.
ANNIE: It's not.
Joy, I will always do anything, everything to keep you safe, keep you whole, and give you the life that you deserve.
Not this awful, false thing that passes as life, that people in places like this say is life.
It isn't.
Now, people in places like this will tell you the trash on the highway shoulder is all there is and you should chase after that trash as it blows in the filthy wind, and they will try to make you one of them.
They'll say, "Oh, there's no such thing as standards anymore.
" And they will call that freedom, but it's their freedom to make you trash their trash so they can use you and own you and throw you away JOY: Mom - But I won't let them! It'll be blood on Christmas before I let them, Joy! I'll throw my blamed body between you and anybody! Mom! Did you get any pills at the hospital? Is this an emergency? You need help! Mom, can you hear me? I I'm worried about you.
Please, Mom, talk to me! [TENSE MUSIC.]
NARRATOR: His calves bulged in his breeches, evidence of hard climbs and hard ridings, even as his belly had flatten to nothing.

Better than my chemo.
Hey, kid.
NADIA: Isn't your appointment Friday? Yeah, well, I wanted to see you before then.
What's wrong? - I think I'm dying.
- NADIA: Not if I can help it.
I didn't come back to New England's asshole for you to croak on me.
POP: Wow, did you learn that bedside manner at Harvard? Skipped that day.
Guess you wasted your money.
No, seeing you in that white coat? I could check out tomorrow knowing I done one good thing.
Don't say that.
You need to talk to your brother.
- Pop.
- POP: It's important.
He's still staying in that guest shack of yours, yeah? You and I had a deal.
POP: Deal's only as good as its weakest link.
- And that's Abdi? - POP: That's Ace.
NADIA: Huh.
Abdi's been poaching Ace's tenants six months early.
Is it poaching if he's just giving them a better deal? Ace doesn't read The Economist, Nadia.
Tell Abdi to go easy.
This'll take care of itself.
I don't get involved in that side.
That was our deal.
- "Do no harm".
- First day of class.
Money well spent, Pop.
- I hope so.
- NADIA: Hmm.
See you at your appointment Friday.

Hi, Doc.
Just grabbing a Zofran for six.
- NADIA: Anne? - ANNIE: Mm-hmm? NADIA: There's nobody in six.
I know that.
I what I meant was I was grabbing one for Anne, stop.
Okay.
I lost the chart.
- I forgot the rules - What are you stealing? - Oxycontin? Fentanyl? - No! - You're an addict.
- No, no, no, I swear.
- NADIA: So you're selling the drugs.
- ANNE: No! I'm gonna call the cops if you don't tell me what you're doing here right now.
[BREATHING HEAVILY.]
I'm not right.
[SIGHS.]
[TENSE MUSIC.]
I've got these things in my mind.
People running around [STAMMERS.]
and memories.
I stumped 'em, though.
The headshrinkers, they couldn't diagnose me.
They could not make me right, but I found the recipe.
What recipe? Risperdal, Haldol, Lithium.
Antipsychotics.
You're stealing antipsychotics.
Why? ANNIE: Because I can't those go on my chart, the state association sees that, I can't work in a hospital.
I need my pills.
[SNIFFS.]
Because Joy, she needs the real me.
- [BABY CRYING.]
- The right me.
And the good Lord knows, there's more to all of us, and not all of it's good but I am trying for Joy.
Joy is your daughter? ANNIE: I lost my own mom when I was about her age, so I know I know how hard it would be for her if I couldn't [BREATHING HEAVILY.]
NADIA: What are the doses? - What? - Risperdal, Haldol, Lithium.
How much? 40, 20, 10.
NADIA: Risper I'll have to make a couple of small adjustments.
We'll use samples and off-labels, but you'll get what you need.
[PAPER RUSTLES.]
The rules.
NADIA: As long as you're working at this hospital, I can cover you.
ANNIE: But why are you If more people took Lithium and not Oxy, this would be a much better world.
But if you feel an episode coming on, call me.
Thank you.
Where'd you find it? I thought I left my key at home.
Behind your desk.
It fell.
[SOFT MUSIC.]
CHRIS: Okay, and this and, uh, your keys.
So you got Old Bessie back? ANNIE: I did.
And some medicine? Yes.
So we're leaving? We're searchers, you and me.
My dad, your grandpa that good old guy, they don't make men like that, little love not anymore.
Now they just make dirty birds and paper fakes.
No heroes, no real men, sorry to say.
But my dad was one of them, and he would say to me, "Annie, there are two kinds of people that made America: searchers and settlers.
" He was a searcher, Dad, your grandpa.
He settled for nothing, that one.
And my mom, she was a settler.
You set her down anywhere and she would make a home.
She would make it perfect, and she would keep making it perfect until [NOSTALGIC MUSIC.]
Till it said uncle, you know? And me, well I'm kind of a funny old oogy mess of both.
All mixed up sometimes, but good things besides and always, always your best interests at heart, Joy.
See, I'm a searcher who just wants to settle.
Wants it bad.
I just can't seem to find a place to alight.
Can't seem to find that Laughing Place that'll live up to you my perfection.
I'm not saying this is it, but I am saying you deserve a chance to see to settle a little, make a place in the world.
Maybe anywhere could be the Laughing Place if we're there together.
Even here.
Maybe.
Mm.
What's this for? You've been cooped up long enough.
Why don't you go get yourself some drawing paper? [STAMMERS.]
By myself? How else are you gonna draw us up a better world? ABDI: [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE.]
Ace did some KKK shit.
Trying to burn us both alive.
- Ace? - Thank God you weren't here.
NADIA: This has to stop, Abdi.
ABDI: It will.
Put that away! Do not make things worse.

Gets out gets into shit.
Other people's shit.
ANNIE: Get out.
You've heard of "landlord may enter"? That's state law.
I'm the landlord.
I may enter.
Landlord's gotta do his own background checks.
