Eastwick s01e03 Episode Script

Madams and Madames

(man) welcome to eastwick-- a quaint little town, but look beneath the surface and what you'll find may surprise you-- women with the power to foretell the future, control men's minds with just a flash of their eyes, or summon the fury of mother nature.
aah! (laughing) but when a mysterious stranger arrives with the promise of sex and trouble, these women and this little town will never be the same.
(bell dings) (softly) ?three blind mice ? ?three blind mice ? hey, bun.
So i brought you some more pictures today, See if we can jog your memory.
?see how they run ? Ah, here we go.
do you remember her? ?see how they run ? ?they all ran after the farmer's wife ? Here.
here, why don't we put this down right here? ?they all ran after the farmer's wife ? ?who cuts off their tails with a carving knife ? ?did you ever see such a sight in your life ? ?as three blind mice? ? ?three blind mice ? ?see how they run ? ?see how they run ? ?they all ran after the farmer's wife ? ?who cut off their tails with a carving knife ? ?have you ever seen such a sight in your life ? ?as three blind mice? ? (children laughing) (indistinct conversations) So what do you think? I call this one "eastwick steel-cut oatmeal stout.
" Tastes like beer.
yeah.
So why exactly are you buding a brewery? I was thirsty.
Well, i'll tell you what-- you made raymond's year.
Ah, yes, raymond.
that does remind me.
What's this? my personal attorney, as promised.
She will guide you through the divorce, And when she's done with raymond, He will need your permission to scratch his own ass.
Darryl, i think that raymond and i Are gonna give it another chance.
mm.
You know, he's been making a real effort lately.
I-i think he's changing.
keep the card just in case.
No, but thank you.
All right.
it will be waiting if you ever need it.
Hey, kitty kat, they're giving away beer cozies.
Be right back.
(chuckles) So, darryl, i was wondering if i could ask you A few questions for this article i'm doing for the paper.
sure Great.
in a bit.
roxie? (sighs) walk with me.
I've been thinking about you.
Let me guess--naked and covered in some kind of cooking oil? Mm, canola, yes, But i'm actually talking about something else.
I'm worried about you.
are you okay? Well, that look on your face is kind of wigging me out.
This is the face of concern.
You recently made a proclamation that you wanted to see An enemy of yours strung up in the town square, And one day later, he accidentally hanged himself In a very gruesome fashion in exactly that location.
And i figured you might be somewhat, oh, well, As you would say, wigged out.
Oh, that.
i'm fine.
Are you sure? Look, i'm not saying it wasn't traumatic for mia And for me, and i may believe in a lot of crazy crap, But i don't think i have the power to kill someone With my words.
hmm.
Ah! the real reason that i'm building a brewery-- Giant scissors.
(screams, gasps) Am i crazy, or did i just hear you scream? You know how sometimes when you're drunk, you think you see Your daughter's dead date rapist standing there With a string of lights around his nec no? just me? (amplified voice) i would like to welcome you all To the groundbreaking for the eastwick brewing company, Setting a new standard in lagers, ales and stouts.
(man) yeah! i know there was some resistance at first, But when mayor fox and the rest of the town council Had a chance to try our product, they came around.
My only hope is that once they sober up, They don't change their minds.
(laughter) Now what do you say we-- we dig a little dirt And we start drinking? (cheering) (amplified voice) cease and desist! cease and desist! Stop! stop this right now! this is an abomination! cease and desist! cease and desist! I have an injunction cease and desist! (normal voice) here in my hand cease and desist! cease and That explicitly forbids the building of a brewery On this property.
Well, that's a buzzkill.
(laughter) This man is not to be trusted.
He is a wolf in sheep's clothing, And i know the truth about him.
This land was promised to the church.
Did you really think you could get away with this? I may not be able to match him bribe for bribe, But i know right from wrong! yes, i do! yes! (cheering) Share it with me! yes! Pastor dunn, surely we can work out some sort of a deal.
i do not make deals With liars or criminals, Mr.
van horne.
Another time, perhaps.
We have driven him off! (cheering) yes, we have! (crowd chants) pastor dunn! pastor dunn! (school bell rings) that was awful.
I feel like everyone was talking about me Behind my back the whole day.
that's because they were.
Thank you.
sorry.
Hey, it's your first day back to school since your boyfriend Accidentally hung himself.
of course they're talking.
he was not my boyfriend.
They think he was.
you're like a celebrity now, Like jackie kennedy or debbie rowe.
More like jackie.
Hey, guys.
hey, stephie.
We're having a memorial tonight for gus at the swimming hole.
It starts at 8:00.
we'll be there.
Mia, i'm so sorry for your loss.
I'm making a playlist for the memorial--nothing but emo.
It's gonna be a total sob fest.
Okay, see you guys there.
bye.
"we'll be there"? i'm not gonna go to that thing.
And she didn't even know him.
I mean, she used to call him "greaseball," And he hated emo.
this whole thing is just weird.
Mia, people are gonna expect you to be there.
Do you want people to start treating you normally again? yes.
Then we're going to the memorial, And i'm borrowing your black wrap dress.
He's got the whole council in his pocket.
he's got you in his pocket, for heaven's sake.
Oh, i assure you, pastor dunn, i am in no one's pocket.
He owns the paper that you work for.
And if he tried to censor so much as one word of my story, I would quit on the spot.
Now this morning you said that you knew the truth About darryl van horne.
Oh, indeed i do.
I'm listening.
Darryl van horne is evil.
I was hoping for something a little more concrete.
He chills me to the bone.
well, i can't exactly print that.
What kind of a man steals property from a church? Why has he bought up nearly every business in our community? What could he possibly want with that kind of power? Now the people in this town-- they may have fallen For his money, for his promises To dig us out of the deep financial hole That we find ourselves in, But at what spiritual cost? I really hear what you're saying, But, um, that's not exactly a news story.
I'm not surprised to hear you say that.
Don't think i'm unaware of your relationship with that man.
excuse me? And as you and your friends get publicly intoxicated and dance In fountains with mr.
van horne, Each and every one of the values That we hold sacred and precious in this town-- They are eroded by your behavior.
I think this interview's over.
He's here to destroy us, to ruin us, To breed death and debauchery! He must be stopped! (both gasping) Wow.
four times, and i haven't even made dinner yet.
Have i told you lately that you're amazing? no.
tell me again.
You're amazing.
You're not so bad yourself.
mmm.
(gasps) Hey, roxie.
Well, if it isn't eastwick's answer to lois lane.
To what do i owe this unbridled pleasure? Well, you keep avoiding our interview, So i thought i'd take matters into my own hands, Get a little proactive.
I believe that's called an ambush.
it's just a few little questions.
I promise i'll be gentle.
okay.
But first, i'm thinking of using this one For the light lager And this one for our dark beers.
Do you think people will get the joke? What about the injunction? Oh, i'm--a minor roadblock.
i'm not worried.
If i were you, i'd be a little bit worried.
Pastor dunn may be a self-righteous blowhard, But he holds a lot of sway in this town.
I think he's gonna come around.
I think he just needs a little (chuckles) nudge.
Okay, then.
I guess i only have one question then.
Look me in the eye.
Happily.
Tell the truth.
Who are you And why did you come here? You don't want to kn ow.
(telhone rings) Hello.
Ah, wonderful.
Wonderful.
mm-hmm.
tonight, 8:00.
Very good.
mm-hmm.
Mm-hmm.
good-bye.
Terribly sorry, but something very important has just come up.
I must reschedule our interview.
fil will see you out.
Hey, mrs.
gardener! hey, mr.
gardener.
There's something wrong with our fridge.
yeah, well, i'll buy you a new one.
ooh! daddy just got paid! Would you please go get cleaned up? 'cause i'm taking you to dinner-- I'm talking, like, tablecloths and everything.
Wow, like a real, live date.
mm-hmm.
mm-hmm.
Mmm.
mmm.
Come on, girl, let's go.
That's weird.
We should ride to work together more often, baby.
(chuckles) why, 'cause that's what couples do? oh, it's what environmentally aware people do.
Carpooling is very hip, very now and very green.
(chuckles) Oh, isn'that adorable? I'll see you later.
text me if you get a break.
He wants you to text him.
o.
m.
g.
Shut up.
or is it a sexting thing? I understand that's very big with children nowadays.
(singsong voice) i'm not doing this with you.
Not while you're doing it with him.
i couldn't keep up.
(normal voice) you got that right.
Then again oh, here we go.
you're the world's greatest lover.
You could take me to places i've never been before.
Blah, blah, blah.
(singsong voice) boring! (normal voice) heard it all before, stud.
He's half your age and twice as hot, and for the record Yes? Look, if you're going to scold me, at least finish the job.
And i do enjoy an explosive ending.
What are you staring at? Nothing.
You're just gonna think i'm crazy.
try me.
Okay.
Gus was behind you until you turned around.
You mean gus the-- Yes, gus the dead guy.
he keeps appearing.
Well, makes a certain amount of sense, i suppose.
no, it really doesn't.
It's actually kind of weird and crazy.
You believe a lot of weird and crazy things.
I don't believe in ghosts.
why do you think you keep seeing one? I don't know.
psychotic break? acid flashback? Early alzheimer's? There are more things in heaven and earth, roxie, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
Okay, let's say it's not an acid flashback.
Let's say he's--for lack of a better word--real.
What the hell am i supposed to do with that? seek him out.
Ask him what he wants.
If you can figure out why he's here, You can probably figure out how to make him leave.
would that same logic apply to you? (laughs) you already know what i want, roxie.
And when i get it, you'll never ask me to leave.
"you don't want to know"? that's what he said? I know.
who says that? i mean, you tell somebody They don't want to know something, It only makes them want to know more.
So i took this.
Ooh! a van horne venturess them notepad? score.
know more.
Hurtful.
here's a little trick that i learned From a friend of mine named nancy drew.
Hmm.
i think that's in southwick.
Why would he be going to southwick? I don't know, but he said he was gonna be there at 8:00, and guess what? so are we.
sweet! i have always wanted to go on a stakeout, Ever since i was a little girl, and i saw a movie Well, "stakeout.
" We can call it "operation estevez.
" You know, because emilio estevez was in--in-- oh, no.
i get it.
I think i may even have a ski mask Around here somewhere.
oh! i know.
Hmm? (chuckles) wow.
Stalk much? Uh, yeah, those are my will pictures.
I kind of, um, got into ts habit.
Every day when we were at work we'd be talking, And--and i'd pretend to check my phone, And i would just, like, snap a picture of him.
It started out really innocent, and i swore that i would stop.
But then he'd come in looking so cute, And i'd say, well, i don't have a picture of him In that outfit yet, and, well, there you have it.
you're just like emilio estevez in "st.
elmo's fire" When he takes all those ally sheedy pictures.
no, that was andrew mccarthy.
Emilio stalked andie macdowell.
Huh.
you know that he's totally into you, right? No, he--he only thinks that he is.
Okay, that doesn't make any sense.
I tricked him into thinking he likes me.
I take it back.
you're le mare winningham In "st.
elmo's fire," choosing to be lonely instead of happy.
We should totally rent that after our stakeout.
Oh, totally.
(sighs) I call upon the spirit of gus lowicki.
I call upon the spirit of gus lowicki.
I call upon the spirit of gus lowicki.
I call upon the spirit of gus lowicki! Where you at, gus? (exhales deeply) (joanna, singsong voice) hello.
(screams) Oh! Sorry! we just let ourselves in.
Uh, we have come to raid your closet.
I'm going on a stakeout, And i need something, like, boris and natasha.
Ah, yes.
russian spy special.
Got it.
Hot.
What were you doing just now? just taking my temperature.
You need instructions to take your temperature? You do if you're not really taking your temperature but actually trying to summon a ghost.
oh, what? I'm trying to summon the ghost of gus so i can ask him What he wants.
i got these ghost-summoning tips off The internet.
if the temperature in this room suddenly changes, That's how you're supposed to know he's here.
Now would you like to drive me To the mental institution yourself, or should i Take my own car? you know what i think you should do, rox? You should ask yourself what gus represents, Seeing as how he is a figment of your own imagination And exists entirely within your head.
or you could visit this medium That i profiled for the paper last year-- Madame aleksandra.
she seemed pretty competent.
ooh, good idea.
Okay, do you guys think that this will fit me? Maybe, if you stuff a bunch of toilet paper in the bra.
Hey, that is--that is accurate.
okay, i will try that.
thanks.
Okay.
What do you think of this For a night of snooping and spying? Who are you spying on? Uh darryl? Why? It's for a story that i'm working on, But i haven't really figured it all out.
I just think he's up to no good.
oh, i could have told you that.
Seriously, is this outfit stalker-worthy? Yes.
you look like catwoman.
Okay, i'm comin' out, but be nice.
I just got lady wood.
If we were in college, a little indigo girls on my ipod, You wouldn't stand a chance.
Really? you don't think it's too much? No, honey, it's just enough.
Oh, god.
i don't know why i-i'm so embarrassed.
I-i guess i just can't remember the last time i got All dressed up for raymond.
yeah, well, Probably the last ti he was sober enough to notice.
roxie.
Sorry.
no, itrobably true.
We both stopped making an effort a long time ago.
Oh, speaking of which, i have to go.
Ray is expecting me.
okay, but first, ladies, please raise your glasses.
I'd like to propose a toast.
(clears throat) To a successful evening for each of us.
May i put my ghost to bed, May you put your story to bed, and may raymond put you to bed.
(chuckles) cheers.
Cheers.
meow.
I'm catwoman.
(kat chuckles) hey, do you remember, Oh, was it junior year, That we snuck out and came to this pool? You know, most guys don't just forget About the time they had sex in a public pool.

(pants) Screw you.
(tires screech) Are you cold? do you want my jacket? No.
look, i'm-- you really don't have to.
Thank you.
So, um, How completely psycho was that eulogy I gave back there? Moderately psycho.
But you were right.
Not to get all holden caulfield on your ass, But those mourners are just a bunch of phonies.
Exactly.
Wait, um, you-- You came to the stupid memorial.
Gus and i were best friends for, like, Three months in kindergarten.
He may have turned out kind of But he was a nice kid, and he had a nice mom, And I just felt like i wanted To honor that or something.
Plus, i knew you'd be here.
(man) josh? Over here! it's my bro.
Yeah.
yeah, i got that.
(mia) hey, chad.
Hey, mia.
hey, idiot.
Let's get you guys home.
What a pleasant surprise.
Now do you like it dirty or with a twist? I think it was my fault.
I better make it dirty.
I don't know how, But i wished it to happen, and so it happened.
And it turns out, my wishes are pretty damn powerful.
I can make people choke on chicken wings, too.
So you wished gus would die, and he did.
And And i'm not sorry.
good.
How is that good? i should feel sorry, but i don't, And that's why he's haunting me, And that's why i'll never have peace for the rest of my life, Because i don't deserve peace, because i'm an awful person.
There's nothing awful about you.
You're a mother, and you love your daughter More than anything in the world, right? of cours but Well, mia was hurt by this boy.
And no doubt, many other daughters Would have met the same fate if they hadn't already.
Now why should you feel sympathy For someone who doesn't deserve it? becaus "because"-- that's your answer? Because it's the decent thing to do.
"to err is human, to forgive is divine"-- All that crap.
Mm.
"and i will execute great vengeance on them "with wrathful rebukes.
"and they will know that i am the lord When i lay my vengeance on them.
" "pulp fiction"? no, ezekiel 25:17.
I wouldn't have pegged you for a bible thumper.
The point is, why does he get to have all the fun? Vengeance is primal.
Why should we suppress our basic instincts Por qu?debemos suprimir and sanitize our desires? Just so we can go to bed every night And feel (chuckles) like decent people? Tell me something.
What was the first emotion you had When you realized gus was dead? Relief.
Yes.
Relieved he was gone, Relieved my little girl wouldn't be afraid anymore.
Shh.
shh.
shh.
shh.
(crying) i'm going to hell, aren't i? I can think of worse places to spend eternity-- Los angeles, for instance.
(sniffles) (cell phone rings) (beep) Chad.
what do you mean you have mia? Is she hurt? okay, i'll meet you at the house.
Is everything all right? I have to go home.
Thanks for listening, darryl.
Anytime.
(shower running) (thud in distance) (object clatters) (glass shatters) (glass shatters, shower running) (crickets chirping) I am not in the mood.
I think my house is being bbed.
i think i need to leave raymond.
I think we're having a sleepover.
Thanks for calling me back, officer.
Yeah, okay, i will.
What'd he say? well, whoever it was is gone now, But myce was totally ransacked.
oh, that blows.
I'm sorry, honey.
i just know it was pastor dunn.
He saw me taking photos of him at the whorehouse, And i bet he just was looking for my phone So that he could kill the story, but too late, sucker! i still can't believe you went to a whorehouse.
I can't believe you had sex in a public pool.
well, that was before raymond turned into ike turner.
I don't think he's changed at all.
Well, you two can share the upstairs guest room.
I'll go get some fresh sheets.
thanks, rox.
(groans) Hey, are you all right? i thought you were at justine's.
I'm gonna let you guys talk this out.
Thank you so much for picking her up, chad.
I don't know what i would have done.
no thanks necessary.
that's what boyfriends are for.
Not so fast.
(door closes) What happened? what's the point? you're just gonna give me grief about it.
Try me.
i went to a memorial tonight for gus at the swimming hole.
Why would you do that? because i felt bad.
I was really wishing something terrible would happen to him, And it did, so i guess i just felt guilty.
It is not your fault.
listen to me.
You have nothing to feel bad about.
Mom, he's dead.
He had a life and a family.
He had a mother who loved him just as much as you love me.
It's sad that he died.
And i guess i just went to his memorial To honor whatever piece of him deserved to be honored, And i hoped it would make me feel better, but it didn't.
You think i'm stupid, don't you? I don't think you're stupid at all.
I think you're my salvation.
Aah! Oh, my god.
