You took care of us.
And I'm trying to do the same thing for you.
But I can't keep putting my neck on the line if you can't meet me halfway.
That simplify shit only goes so far in the real world.
Is that where we are? Kenny, you were doing great with Dr.
He's one of the only ones that gives a damn.
Do you think the VA gives a damn? Do you think the VA is looking out for us? No.
But he's looking out for us.
Because he's been over there, and he knows what you're going through.
I thought you were getting better.
You you were going out, and you were meeting people, you were talking to them.
Man, you were even going back to those stupid movies that you like, right? Man, I ain't getting Not one phone call about you getting into no fights anymore, nothing.

I should have died with my men.
I can't live like this anymore, Silk! He don't own me! SILK: Girl, you know nothing in love is easy.
It's a lot of moving parts to this shit.
Miss me with that moving parts shit! I'll call Dr.

But I need you to take your meds until I can get you in, okay? Just hold on 'til then.

Was that too much to ask for? Hell yeah it is.
Listen bitch, I'mma tell you this one time.
If your ass don't come back soon, you know how this shit gonna play out.

To patch that up, coffee? Okay.

But this is about as safe a place as you could find, barring the coffee.
I'm Kenny.
Hi, Kenny.
This is where people tell you their name.
- Is that where we are? - I hope so.
I don't want to have to have poisoned myself for nothing.
If it's that bad, why don't you just stop drinking it? You get yourself together, I'll stop drinking that toilet water.
- What kind of deal is that? - It's the kind of deal you make when you want somebody to be okay.

You were warned.
Do you know where the bathroom is? Yeah, that way.

We've been searching everywhere for her.
Girl, is he even tripping like that? Girl, you ran off with six racks.
What you think he gonna do? - You told him where I was? - I had to tell him shit.
We ain't been to three good places since we got into town.
Shit, Jimmy's taking Bear into every damn store on the strip.
She has nice tits, a nice ass.
You couldn't miss her if you tried.
Your sister? Don't get smart.
You guys got security tape? What? Cameras! Sorry, sir.

Okay, just tell him I'm coming, okay? Tell him I just stepped out for a few things and I'll be back in a hour, okay? Okay? Please! Please, just call him off.
Please? Uh, look, I'll do what I can, okay? But this man ain't gonna wait forever.
You playing with this money, and you know how that goes.
This ain't your first damn time at the rodeo, Diamond.
Homeboy, I've got some questions for you.
I'm looking for someone, my sister.
She goes by the name of Diamond - [GRUNTS.]
- and she's ran off.
Pretty girl, tight clothes.
You seen somebody like that? Can't say that I have.
Yeah? Okay.
Forget about it, Bear.
Silk says she called in.
Let's get out of here.
- Smarten up, waiter.
Whoo, much better! Look, I think maybe we might have got off on the wrong foot.
Like I said, I'm not much of a morning person, and - You did this? - Yeah.
Did anything else happen while I was powdering my nose? Nah.
It's a little early for engagement rings, isn't it? Just saying, every great romance ends at marriage.
Romeo and Juliet were great until they tried to tie the knot.
Oh, so we Romeo and Juliet now? Nah, I'm thinking like Wesley and Princess Buttercup in "Princess Diaries," or Allen Payne and Jada Pickett in "Jason's Lyric," or Kate and Leo in the "Titanic.
" You know, love that stands the test of time.
You are so corny.
And I bet if I knew what you were talking about, you'd be even more corny.
Now come on, we've got to clean you up.
How don't you know about the the Titan wait, what? Look, I don't care how artsy you are.
I can't spend the rest of the day with you looking like that.
So we're spending the rest of the day? Yes, we are, Basquiat.

Give me a shout I promise I'mma take you out, word - How many do you want? - How many what? Children.
I want three.
Twin boys and a baby girl.
The boys older so they can watch after their little sister.
You really look out for people, don't you? Are you always rescuing people? That's how I was raised.
My momma told me you look out for people who can't look out for themselves.
You look out for the people you love.
So that is who you are.
That is how you see yourself.
Nobody's who they seem to be.
I mean, we we got this idea of who we want to be.
You know, like, who we should be.
But it's hard to live up to that.
Yeah, I know.
But not you, you know? You're you're perfect.
I mean, you're like, uh [LAUGHS.]
I've probably drawn this fountain 100 times if I drew it once.
My mom used to give me pennies to make wishes at fountains like this.
I used to take the pennies and buy candy with it.
Maybe I should have bought the wishes instead.
What are you doing? I want to make a wish, and I don't have a penny.
Wait, what are you You're going to leave me out here by myself? I thought you rescued people! [LAUGHS.]
Oh, help me! Whatever shall I do? [LAUGHS.]
I will always be there for you.
I wish that you will be my Prince Charming and always come for me.
Hey, guys? Y'all might want to get out of there.
- Oh! - Oh my gosh! - Told you.
- NINA: Aah! - Oh my god, I'm soaked! - Me too! Are you happy now? That all depends.
How far away do you live? Thought you might wanna taste some real cof Whoa! Mm! Um, I can go back in the kitchen.
Is that real? Like, it works? KENNY: I hope so.
I just cleaned it yesterday.
NINA: You do that? It's a mental exercise, you know? Just clear your mind, don't think about nothin'.
Let your hands do all the work.
Is that right? My uncle used to say the same thing.
He was a boxer.
I'd stich him up after the fights.
He'd say soon as you enter the ring, you let your brain go blank and your knuckles do the rest.
Sounds like somebody I'd like to meet.
- Well, he's dead.
- I'm sorry to hear that.
It's okay, really.
He's been dead a long time.
"A Star Is Born"? What's that? Like, a new movie? You're kidding, right? You've never seen it? Chris Christopherson? Barbra Streisand? Mm They play it all the time at the revival theater I go to.
My mom used to take me as a kid.
I've never heard of it.
That's a classic movie.
How Okay, so anyway, it's about this singer, right? She falls in love with this rock star guy.
And he's like he's a little bit of an asshole, - but, you know she's - She loves him anyway? Yeah.
But he'd die for her.
She wouldn't leave him no matter how bad he got, and he knew it.
So he couldn't let her suffer and destroy her life for him.
So he sacrificed himself.
I've never been to the movies.
Not even with your man? [LAUGHS.]
No, but not on a Not on a date or nothin'? Never really been to one of those either.
- Wow.
- I mean, I've had boyfriends.
But none of them ever really did more than take me out to the club or show me off.
I guess I was never really worth more than that.
Can't imagine a life where someone like you deserves to feel so alone.
Like me? Why, because I'm pretty? Because you're you Nina.
I love when you say my name.
There's something I need I wanted to tell you.
It's about Diamond.
It's important.
Look, it's not, okay? Whatever it is, it can wait.
Today has been the most perfect day I've had in a long time.
So later, please.

So you think I'm crazy, huh? Is that it? You think I'm crazy? Just find me something concrete.
Until then, I've taken this as far as I can take it, okay? Right, 'cause this simplify shit only goes so far in the real world, doesn't it? Look, that's not what I meant.
You know, I don't know why you put up with that shit.
Guy's crazier than a sack of cats.
Let me tell you something about Kenny Carter.
One night in Anbar Province, enemy got a drop on us.
They circled our position, snipers in the hills.
I mean, they're picking us apart.
I'm talking about a very short shelf life here.
So, what? Crazypants went all Wolverine and killed his way out? Twelve of us, asshole.
Under siege three days.
By day two, it's only five of us left.
Had a chunk the size of a golfball missing from my hip.
But Kenny? He just kept disappearing, coming back with food and ammo.
He's a damn ghost.
I passed out from blood loss, woke up in a field hospital somewhere.
And they told me by the time they got us, all Kenny had left on him was three rounds, and his sidearm and a Ka-bar.
He turned that damn slaughterhouse into a bloodbath.
Sounds like a great role model.
He saved my life! You and me, we've been partners, what, two years? And the most you've ever done for me was got me cups of coffee that taste like dog piss! Hey, what the? How would I even know that? We're called veterans for a reason, asshole.
And still, he can't even get himself a doctor's appointment without waiting for two months.
But you civilians wouldn't care less about that, right? You wouldn't care less about the sacrifice that man has made, or the fact that he can't use the one skill that he's been taught.
What skill is that? Have you not been listening to a word I've been saying? He's a killer! [TENSE MUSIC.]
Come on, baby.
So, how do you think this is going to end, girl? [LAUGHS.]
Yo, I need you to stop trippin', real talk.
In the life, love ain't nothin' but a four-letter word.
And quiet as it's kept, you ain't the first or the last bitch that ever got turned out lookin' for it.
Hell, look at me.
When Taggert found me, he made me feel beautiful too.
Told me he loved me and shit.
There was no me, there was no him.
It was just us.
Look at me now.
I said look at me! I love him! Is that really what you think this is? Love? I've never felt anything like it.
I know you think I'm stupid, like you don't think it's real.
But I love him.
All right, I'mma keep it real with you, then.
Facts only.
You ain't nothin' but a high-class hooker one night and truck stop pussy the next.
Hoes don't find love.
All they find is a new pimp.
But you wrong, Silk! He saved my life.
And I love him.
He made me feel like I could be a wife.
A mother.
A human being.
Someone worth being with.
He wants to have three kids Two boys and a little girl, so they could protect their sister just like he protected me.
I love him.
And now? Now I'll never even know if he loves me too.
I might've gotten him killed! No, I don't even know if he's alive! [SOBS.]
TAGGERT: Silk? You done in there? Check the spot, bitch.
Diamond got some new friends to meet.
You have to go to him.
Please? Please, I have to know if he's okay, to tell him how sorry I am.
Please, Silk! I can't do this not knowing.
I just I'll never ask you for anything else.
I'll do everything Taggert wants.
But please? I need to know if he's okay.
- TAGGERT: Diamond! Your ass gonna get my ass beat.
Give me the goddamn address.
Hey, you remember me from the from the other day? Uh, I don't remember anything.
Look, it's okay, man.
I'm just looking for anybody that can help me corroborate the description of these gentlemen here.
No, seriously.
It's all been kind of a blur.
I don't remember anything, sorry.
She got the Miley Cyrus.
I got the Kendrick Lamar.
I don't even know what you're talking about.
Look, all right! I came in here with a very pretty girl.
She went to the bathroom.
They came in looking for her.
Yeah, I remember.
You were back there talking to yourself while I was getting slapped around.
I'm not looking for a repeat performance, okay? Okay.
I'm sorry.
Um, can I use your bathroom? Yeah, sure.
Damn! There's gotta be something here! THUG 1: I ain't gonna tell you again, homie! Open the register! [LAUGHS.]

After we finished with you, we're gonna find that pretty little lady of yours, and we're gonna have a party.
It's gonna be me, her, and my man right here, you dig that? Take care of this [LAUGHS.]
Any sound other than the answer and I'll break the other hand! [GROANS.]

They take 'em back to the hotel, to the parking lot, it don't matter, all right? It's the only reason why I hollered at your lady friend.
I thought she worked with him.
She was always loyal to Dawg, look, she got Taggert got them doing things, dawg.
- Doing - Like what? THUG 1: You already know about it, man.
And who told you that, huh? Your man's laid out! No no! - Who told you Nina do that?! - Huh? - Who told you that shit? - I just heard it around.

Let's see what we can do about that other hand.

Where is she? Look, she says she's sorry, but she wants to Needs to make sure you're okay.
And she understands if you don't wanna see her again.
Well, if she really sent you with that message, then you know I can't leave her alone.
I have to see her.
You know, there's a far less painful way to commit suicide.
I'm not scared of him.
That's funny.
I used to think the same thing.
Did he hurt her? Do you really think that Taggert can hurt her any more than you can right now right this minute? I mean, yeah, Taggert, he takes away our looks and our self-respect.
But there's nothing worse than a man who gives her hope and then snatches that shit right out from under her.
I don't believe I caught your name.
I don't believe I threw it.
It's Silk.
Okay, Silk.
We talked about having kids Twin boys, and then a little girl.
That way So the brothers can help protect her.

'Cause are you gonna love her when you go to kiss her lips and have to wonder how many dicks they sucked? When you stare at that tight little ass and have to wonder how many tongues been all over it? You really want me to believe that you wanna make babies with a ho who don't even know how many tricks she's turned? Yes.

If you're gonna grow old with me, you're gonna need to learn when to shut up.
You came for me.
I told you I would.
All right, come on y'all.
We gotta get out of here.
What did y'all do? [SIGHS.]
Should have did that shit myself 10 years ago.

The cops can't be far away.

Hurry up, Diamond! - Get off me, please.
- Thank you, thank you, Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.

Nina, come on! Nina! Come on! [CAR STARTS.]
Come on, baby, we're almost there.
Just a little, baby.
We did it, baby.
We did it.
You're good at this.
My uncle, the terrible boxer with the very punchable face, he'd come home a mess.
Could barely walk the next day.
Should I be worried about my parts when you get done? [LAUGHS.]
Well, let's find out.
Look, I get it.
You nasty bitches have a code.
I can appreciate that.
But you're either gonna give me a name, sweetheart, or you're gonna take the fall and spend the rest of your life letting guards decorate your face with their dicks.
Take a walk.
Come on.
Give us a minute.
They're gonna die.
You get that, don't you? Hm? There's blood in the water, and if I don't get to them first, Nina and Kenny are going to die.
Kenny ditched his phone, so I don't know where he is.
He's in the wind.
He's gone, can't find him.
But something tells me that Nina left a way for you to contact her, so [LAUGHS.]
What's funny? [LAUGHS.]
I don't mean to laugh, but it is really funny when y'all assholes try to play tough guy.
Sitting in here acting like you know something.
You don't know shit.
Not about Nina, not about your boy, and you damn sure don't know shit about me.
- Yeah? - Yeah.
And let me tell you about your boy.
He ran through here like a hurricane and he ain't let nothing stop him.
And it wasn't about no money, or no dope, or no pussy.
He love that girl.
And I ain't never seen nobody love somebody the way he love Nina.
And when she'd look at him, she could make stone cry.
So, I'm probably a nasty bitch.
But I ain't gonna betray that.
So you could bury me under the jail, 'cause I ain't telling your black ass shit.
Hey, you.
The other day, at your place, I wanted to There's something that I wanted to tell you.
You don't have to say anything.
I know about everything.
You don't.
There was no way out.
After Uncle Benny, I had no family.
I didn't have any friends outside the life.
It was like I wasn't even real, like I wasn't even a person.
At first, I just wanted to feel something, anything that real.
And then it's like You just want to not feel anything at all.
You just want it all to stop, 'cause it's just too much, and nothing seems to fix it.
Aren't we a pair? The day we met, you saved me.
You saved me, Nina.
Before I met you, I had nothing.
I knew the first day I looked in your eyes that you would wash away all the pain, all the loneliness, all the madness.
I was nothing, absolutely nothing, and you made me feel like I was something.
Look what we have here.
You know, it looks kind of fancy for a guy like Taggert, huh? It kind of looks like a girl's phone.
You ain't shit.
Hello? Who is this? Kenny, listen.
Uh, I'm so sorry, okay? I I didn't I should have Little late for that, isn't it? No, man, no, not at all.
It's not late at all.
Ke Kenny, listen to me.
You are a decorated soldier.
You are a decorated hero, you understand me? You have a history of mental illness that Dr.
Green can vouch for.
The DA's gotta be able to work around that.
All right, you might do a couple years in psych ward, all right? Some house arrest.
You can get through that.
You can survive it.
I know you can.
It's not too late, Kenny, come on.
What about Nina? Kenny Kenny, I can save you.
But she killed a cop, man.
It's on video.
Kenny? Kenny? Kenny, are you there? Kenny? Last night, at this hotel known for prostitution, two alleged shooters left four dead bodies, with one of them being a rookie Metro PD patrolman.
Metro PD is offering a $50,000 reward for any information that may lead to the arrest of these shooters who left the scene of the crimes.
Motel security camera footage salvaged at the parking lot of this bloodbath shows the two suspects as they fled.
Police and the FBI have joined forces in search of the couple, with state troopers on every highway.
Kenneth Carter, will you make an honest woman out of me? I will.
But I can't marry a woman who's never been to the movies.
- That's just not right.
Oh, so you're taking me out on a date? Yeah.
- Okay.
SALESWOMAN: Mmm? Yeah, we'd like to shop in private.
Is that something you can do for us? Normally, you need to make an appointment to do all that.
- You know what? - Your time is valuable.
And I wouldn't dream of not compensating you.
Shit, who am I kidding? Everyone's got college loans today.
Please? Well, on that case, yes.
Yes, real quick, yes.
I am so sorry, we're closing early today.
I am not feeling well.
I hope you guys can come back tomorrow.
Now, how can I help you two lovely people? [FUNKY MUSIC.]
Do you like it, baby? I want your smell on me.
So, do you like? [EXHALES.]

Really? Your eyes couldn't be more beautiful.
You are so corny.
I mean, how do I look, you know? I don't want you to be ashamed of being seen with me, you know, like you said earlier.
You look just how I pictured my Prince Charming.
Let's hit the town.
So what now, Sherlock? What makes you think they haven't skipped town already? Nah, I don't I don't think so.
I mean, how far are they really gonna get? I mean, true, they got they got Taggert's dough, all right.
We've got a statewide BOLO going on.
A cop is dead, man.
I don't care how much Kenny says he's in love with that girl, he's not stupid.
He knows the clock is running against him.
Yeah, he's He gonna stay close.
Kenny's old school.
He grew up watching romance movies.
So if he's into that girl like he says he is, he's gonna take her to one.

Someone to grow old with me.
Someone to stay with me no matter what.
So how about it, baby? You gonna love me when we 70? They're not going to let us grow old, Nina.
The cops are in the lobby.
Listen, baby, you can live, okay? There's an emergency exit by the screen.
- No.
- The car is parked out back.
You can slip out, head east up the coast, maybe Jekyll Island, St.
Use that money to stay low, okay? And when I get a chance [SOBS.]
Nina, what are you doing? I think our love is a miracle, just like "The Notebook.
" And I think our love can't be broken by anyone or anything not even death.
I love you.
I love you, Kenny.
Cease fire, cease fire! Damn it, damn it, cease fire! Now! [COUGHS.]
Nina, Nina.
I love you.
