The Leftovers (2014) s01e04 Episode Script

B.J. and the A.C.

Do you want something to drink? Water? Coffee? Drano? Holiday dance is tomorrow night.
Fundraiser for the new library.
I take it you don't give a shit about the new library.
Uh-huh.
Ahem.
I want to ask you a favor.
Just give us a little break tomorrow.
You know, don't show up with your people and your signs and your "stop wasting your breath" bullshit.
If you come, I'm not gonna protect you.
It's the holidays.
People want to drink, they want to relax, blow off a little steam, spend some time with their families.
_ What the fuck does that mean? Hey there, Chief.
Did it work? Yeah.
They'll be there.
Fuckin' briar patch, huh? Yeah, fuckin' briar patch.
Be sure everything's ready at the school for the walk-through.
And tell the mayor to be there.
I don't want any fuckin' pushback when I arrest these assholes.
- Copy that, Chief.
- Anything else? Oh, it looks like somebody stole the baby from the Nativity.
You know, Jesus.
Am I supposed to give a shit? Uh, no? That's correct, Dennis.
The number you have dialed is no longer in service, and there is no new number.
The number you have dialed is no longer in service, and there is no new number.
What the fuck, Tommy? Ho ho! Goddamn it.

I think we fuckin' need him to.
He'll call.
And why are you in my dream? Ha ha ha! Why are you in my dream? Are you Christine? - Um, uh - Do you know this guy? - I I talked to him a couple of times.

Come on, Christine.
Let's get out of here.
Come on! Come on! I know what's inside you.
Ooh, that for me? No.
Yeah, it is.
What'd you get me? What'd you get me? The greatest gift of all love.
Found them.
Those are Grandpa's, not ours.
I'll look for the others when I get home.
Tonight, OK? I tried calling your brother.
He get a new cell phone? I don't know.
Well, when's the last time you talked to him? Couple months ago.
He's still in San Francisco, right? I don't know.
- Well, what do you know? - I told you, I haven't talked to him.
Stop copping me.
I'm not copping.
I'm allowed to care about where your brother is.
OK, I get it.
Jesus, Dad.
Hey, speaking of Jesus, big deal at school, Mr.
Garvey.
- Everybody's talking about it.
- What? The baby, how it just vanished from the manger.
Didn't vanish.
It got stolen.
So does that mean it's the police's responsibility to get it back? Well, Aimee, as the Chief of Police, I would say that that might be a misuse of our resources.
Hmm.
They're just gonna replace it.
That's cheating.
Excuse me? You can't just get a new one.
It's sacred.
Jill, did you steal the baby Jesus? - That's sick.
- It is sick.
OK, I have an actual job to go to, so I just want to be clear that I'm not gonna be doing anything about whatever this is.
Cool.
Don't.
Hmm.
You enjoying my sandwich? All right, listen up or else we're gonna have another fuckin' riot.
Gym only has 3 entrances.
We're not posting on any of them.
- Where are we? - Yeah.
You got it? We are gonna be in the parking lot unmarked cars, waiting.
And if the G.
R.
sets foot on school property, we're gonna arrest them for criminal trespass.
We're gonna scatter two-man teams there, there, there, and there.
We'll have 4 more in the vans.
Soon as they come on the school grounds, we move.
Miranda, zip cuffs Mm-hmm.
Oh, hang on.
Give me a minute.
What? How do you spell that? A-F-O-R-D-A, baby boy, 20 inches.
The white one.
Obviously the fucking white one, Marlene.
Fuck.
Good-bye.
Did you know somebody stole the baby Jesus? - Yeah.
- All you have to do is run over to the Biggie Superstore and pick a new one up.
A new one? For fuck's sake, Kevin.
It's not the actual baby Jesus.
No, you fuckin' do it.
Can you give the Chief and I a moment? Here's what you're going to do.
Get the fucking baby, open the box, strip it naked, scruff it up so you can say that you found it in a ditch or a dumpster or something.
And why would I do that? Because you need a win, Kevin.
_ Fuck.
Somebody stole it, now we're gonna get it back.
Check the bank that faces the Nativity, see if we can pull last night's camera feed.
- Are you Are you serious? - Yes, Dennis, I am serious.
So should I make that the priority No.
Look, the dance is still the priority, but I would like to stop dealing with the goddamn baby fuckin' Jesus! Fuck.
Christ.
Fuck.
Fuck.

What'd you say? I don't remember.
Did you talk about Wayne? Maybe.
OK, you can't talk about the ranch, Christine, OK? It isn't my fault.
