WOMAN (ON PHONE):
When I was a little girl,
I imagined there was nothing
you were afraid of.

(SIGHS)
You were indestructible.

There was no one and nothing
that could ever hurt you.

There was no one and nothing
that you would ever let hurt me.

(GROANS)

When I was a little girl,
you were a king.

And everything I knew was your kingdom.

I guess what I'm asking is
where did that guy go?
(GROANS) Well,
I hate to break this to you, but
you weren't very bright as a kid, Emily.

I could've told you anything
and you would've bought it.

Oh, I think we both know
that isn't true.

Uh, and what makes you think
that I wasn't afraid of anything
when you were a little girl?
I was afraid of everything
that wasn't nailed down
when you were a little girl.

I just got good at
lying to you about it.

Yes, you did.

- (CHUCKLES)
- Until recently.

I've noticed.

You don't sound like yourself.

You're preoccupied when we're talking.

You're not sleeping.

I'm just asking you
what's the difference now.

I don't know.

Something, you know, just off.

- (SIGHS)
- Listen, if this is about
what I think it's about,
then I understand why it frightens you.

But I think you're fine.

Unless there's something
you're not telling me.

Is there something
you're not telling me?
Oh, sorry.
No.
No, of course not.
Uh
I got to run, sweetie.

I'll call you when I can.

- Okay.

- Okay.

- Bye-bye, love you.

- Bye.
I love you.

Uh, she's pretty sure everything's fine.

Huh.

(WHISTLES)
Well
let's go.

- MAN: Mr.
Chase?
- (DOOR CLOSES)
- Yes.

How you feeling this afternoon?
Dave and Carol.

Who are Okay.
Okay, I got it.

Dave and Carol are your dogs.

I got a little confused
for a second there.
(CHUCKLES)
Why? Because they have names?
Well, 'cause they have people's names.

You know, those are-those are
people's names.

Oh, not in this case.

Right.
Um, you know what?
Why don't we just start over, then?
Uh, good afternoon,
Mr.
Chase.
I see you've brought
your dogs into the
Uh, Dr.
Howard
never minded, you know.

I bring 'em everywhere.

Yeah, I'm Dr.
Howard.

(SIGHS) Oh.
See, I don't think so.

- Okay.
(CHUCKLES)
- Uh
I'm guessing you were
expecting my mother.

I was expecting
the Dr.
Howard I've been seeing
going on 17 years now.

Where might she be?
Well, she only sees patients
on Thursdays now.

- Thursdays?
- Yeah.

Uh, at her age,
she, um, found it hard
to keep up the grind,
but I'm sure you know
all about that, right?
Okay.
Uh (CLEARS THROAT)
We brought you in today
to talk about some results.

- Oh.

- Looks like you recently underwent
a full preventative screening here.

Yeah, we got physical,
cognitive and full labs.

Don't usually do the cognitive
without a request.

- Yeah, I requested it.

- Oh, okay.

- Um
- (CHAIR ROLLS)
Are you experiencing any symptoms?
Mm.
Isn't that the nature
of cognitive impairments
that you aren't cognizant of them?
Not always.

(SIGHS)
Well
not never, either.

No, I've not been experiencing
any symptoms.

- I've been feeling more anxious.

- Hmm.

Agitated.
Um
Maybe missing a few things.

My wife (SIGHS)
She went through this, so,
if I hadn't spotted it,
I don't think she would have,
so, I just want-wanted
wanted to make sure.

I see.

(SCRIBBLING ON PAPER)
So, are we sure?
I beg your pardon?
The cognitive test.

Oh, yes.
Yeah, these look fine.

(SCRIBBLING CONTINUES)
Nothing out of the ordinary?
Nope.

Why, would you want there to be?
(LAUGHS)
CHASE: Remind me,
we got to go to the doctor
on Thursdays from now on.


(INDISTINCT CONVERSATION)
EMILY (ON PHONE): Tell me I
shouldn't be worried right now.

Because the last time,
the answer to
every question I asked was,
"I'm fine, Emily, really,"
was when things got bad with Mom.

(DRILL WHIRRING)
I understand why you felt
like you needed to protect me from it,
but I'm not a child.

And our situation is hard enough
without feeling like
you're trying to keep me
out of things
that I should be in with you.

Tell me I shouldn't be worried,
because I am.

(SIGHS)
Okay.

Please call me.

(CANS CLATTERING)
(CHASE GROANS)
Oh, Abbey.

Sweetie.

- Oh.

- (WHIMPERING)
(SHAKY BREATHS)
(SOBBING): I'm sorry.

I-I don't know how I got here.

And then, I was afraid
if I came back to bed,
- you would see.

- Oh, come on, come on.

Come on to bed, now.

(GRUNTS) Let me get you out of this.

(ABBEY BREATHING HEAVILY)
(CHASE GROANS)
Come on.

Love
you should put me somewhere.

Yeah, I'm gonna put you to bed.

- (CHUCKLES) Come on.

- No.
No.

Y-You should put me away somewhere.

This isn't fair on you.
No.

I am not what you married.

Oh, please don't say that.

Come to bed.

(SOBBING SOFTLY)
- I could be dangerous for you.

- (CHUCKLES)
Makes things interesting.

(ABBEY GASPS)
Who am I?
You're the woman
who promised to take care of me.

You're the woman
who I promised to take care of.

Now, come on.
Come on.

Who am I?
I know who you are.

I know what you are.

I see you.

DISPATCHER: 911.
What's your emergency?
Yeah my name is-is Dan Chase.

I'm at 92 Neville Street in Norwich.

A man just broke into my house
with a gun.

He fired at me, I fired back.

I (CHUCKLES) I-I shot him.

I I-I think he's dead.

Sir, please stay on the line.

Repeat your name again.

My name is Dan Chase.


(INDISTINCT POLICE RADIO CHATTER)
STEVENSON: So,
you heard the dogs barking downstairs.

You retrieved your weapon.

You descended the stairs,
at which point,
the intruder fired a shot.

You fire back, hitting him in the chest.

That's correct.
Yeah.

RICHMOND: Dogs
usually downstairs at night?
No, they usually sleep in my room.

Uh, they must have heard
something downstairs.

The barking is-is what woke me up.

(SIGHS) Wh-What was this?
Was it a robbery, or
STEVENSON: It's hard to say for sure.

He seems well-dressed for a vagrant,
- so that'd be my guess.

- RICHMOND: You don't have
any security issues
you're aware of, do you?
- Security?
- RICHMOND: Yeah.

- Business rivals, personal issues.

- (SCOFFS) Oh, no, no.

You received any kind of
threats or anything lately?
No, no, I'm retired, so
What'd you do before you retired,
- if you don't mind me asking?
- Oh, real estate,
mostly, uh, down in Manhattan.

I kept the family up here, though.

I never had any kind of problem.

Figured we were far enough away
from the city
to be free from all that.

Yeah, well, you'd be surprised.

Happens everywhere these days.

The silencer that's weird, though.

- That you don't usually see.

- Oh?
But then again,
you had that guy last week
that held up a mini-mart in Lyndon
- with an AK-47.

- AK-47.

- Ah.

- So I shouldn't be surprised
by much of anything anymore.

Yeah.

STEVENSON: We'll send the guys
through in the morning
to do a more detailed sweep-up,
if that's all right.

I'm sure you had a very long night.

You know, actually, uh
I have family in Milton.

If I give you the key,
would it be all right
if I stayed with them?
STEVENSON: We'll leave it under the mat.

(CHUCKLES)
(LINE RINGING)
EMILY: Hello?
Hey, kid, it's me.

Sorry to be calling you at this hour.

(SIGHS) Uh, they found me.

What?
- Yeah.

- Are you okay?
Yeah, I'm fine.
The dogs are fine.

But if they found me
at the house, I can't go back.

Are you sure it was
- it was them?
- (SIGHS) Yeah.
Yeah, I'm sure.

Just because
after all this time, you know,
- it seems pretty unlikely.

- Emily.
Emily, I'm sure.

I've been feeling it
for a few weeks now.

I thought maybe it was my imagination.

My head making up ghosts
to remind me I'm getting lazy.

I still have things
to worry about, but
No, this is not a drill.

This is happening.

I got to go get ahead of it now.

(EXHALES)
Okay.

What can I do?
(SIGHS)
I'm, uh
I'm thinking that, uh
we're gonna have to stay off the phones.

You know, I'm gonna lay low for a bit,
just to be on the safe side.

Okay.

- How long?
- I don't know.

A week, maybe.

Couple of weeks.

(SIGHS)
A month, maybe.

(CHUCKLES) I'm sorry.

No, don't say that.

You've
- You have nothing to apologize for.

- All right.

I'll call you as soon as I can.

Yeah.
Right.

Okay.
I love you, Dad.

I love you, too.
Bye, kiddo.

(HANGS UP)
(DOG WHIMPERS)
What?
I didn't lie to her.

There's no reason to worry her right now
about things we don't know.

MAN: Space is the breath of art.

You know who said that?
BOY: No.

Any idea what it means?
No.
Do you?
(CHUCKLES)
Well, I I think it means,
when you're building a house,
you got to have a place for everyone
and everything important.

But it's good to have
some space that's just
you know, space.

Do you think this is too big?
Oh, no.
I love what we're building here.

And I love building it with you.

I do think that we're gonna be able to
host a small army in here, though,
by the time we're done.

It's just for our family.

Yeah?
A room for you and Grandma,
a room for me,
and a room for Mom and Dad.

For Mom and Dad?
In case somebody figures out
how to bring them back someday.

(CRYING)
- (KNOCKING)
- WOMAN: Harold?
Yeah?
There's a there's a call for you.

Oh.

Hello?
MAN: Uh, Assistant Director Harper?
- This is Harper.

- Please hold.

Have you ever thought it might help
- if he saw you cry?
- (GROANS)
Everyone cries around a kid
that's lost his parents.

I think just for variety's sake,
I'll be the one that doesn't.

MAN: The assistant
director is on the line.

(LINE BEEPS)
WATERS: Sir, this is Raymond Waters.

Bob Blasky over at DCS put me on to you.

I'm working a case he thought you might
be able to be helpful with.

What kind of case?
Now, I have been granted SCI access
for the sake of this interaction,
- just so you're aware.

- I understand.

What kind of case?
In July 1987,
a man under you went MIA near Torkham.

- You know the man I'm referring to?
- Yes.

Well, my assignment was to ascertain
whether the subject
was still in the wild,
and if so, to locate and retrieve him.

- Now, about two weeks ago
- Retrieve?
- Yes, sir.
Now, two weeks ago
- What for?
- (SIGHS) Sorry.
Excuse me?
- What for?
(STAMMERS) That file has been resolved.

It's been sealed for three decades.

Why is it coming up again now?
Sir, that's outside the scope
of my responsibilities.

I've got an operation gone sideways here
and time is of the essence.

May I continue?
Yes.

Now, an operator was sent
to engage the subject.

That operator was dumped,
the subject is at large.

We do have redundancies in place but,
given your history with the subject,
DCS felt your insight
might prove valuable.

Sir, I'm instructed to relay to you
your help was personally
requested by the secretary
Yeah, I get it.

I'll be in the air in an hour,
on my way to you.

- Thank you, sir.
I'll
- (HANGS UP)
Is everything all right?
No.

(music playing quietly on jukebox
WAITRESS: Service animals only.

Sorry?
They're not allowed to be in here.

Only service animals.

Heh.
Wa-Warming my feet's not a service?
Coffee, black, and some rye toast.

White or wheat?
Wheat, please.

(TRAFFIC WHOOSHING PAST)
STUART (ON PHONE):
Mr.
Dixon, how are you?
CHASE: Oh, great, thanks, Stuart.

Listen, there's something
I'd like you to do for me.

Uh, I'm gonna be coming out
in a few days,
and I was wondering
if you can make sure the house is ready.

Um, new sheets, uh, groceries.

No dairy, almond milk, coffee, you know.

There ought to be
a list there somewhere.

Wonderful.
And will Mrs.
Dixon
be coming with you?
No.

No, no, she won't.

Uh, email me if you have any questions.

Understood.

Looking forward to finally
putting a face to the name.

Uh, me, too.

So long.

(VEHICLE APPROACHING)
(MUFFLED MUSIC PLAYING)
(MUSIC PLAYING FAINTLY)
(SNIFFLES)
- Waitress come yet?
- Yes, I sent her away.

There are too many options.

Uh
Listen, there's something
I need to talk to you about.

I'll never get used to this.

You people and your menus.

There are three pages of just pancakes.

What?
What is it?
Uh
Ordinarily,
when I get the feeling
I've been having all day
like
trouble is starting to get close
I'd tell you
it's time for us to move again.

Get ahead of things
before things catch up to us.

But, um
Um
(TAKES DEEP BREATH)
What if we don't keep running?
What if we find a place to stand still
and we build something there?
- Build what kind of something?
- Uh
(CHUCKLES)
A home.

Life.
A reality.

A place where good things happen.

Those things are for sale
in this country.

They can be manufactured, if you know
how to work the machinery.

- I can do that.

- We can't stop moving.

We can't stop moving, they will find us.

If the people we were
stop moving, they'd be found.

But the people we're about to become
No one's looking for those people
because those people
haven't done anything wrong.

They are honest Americans
looking to work hard.

Be happy.

Be a
Be a family.


It's a comforting story.

This place is filled
with comforting stories.

It makes it so hard to see the truth.

The moment we left the mountains,
I think we both knew
there was only one way
this could all end.

I do not like the idea that
we're lying to ourselves about it,
or to each other.

I have drawn some comfort
in knowing that
at least, when the end comes
we will know we did the right thing.

And we will be together,
and maybe that's okay,
maybe that's enough.

Fuck that.

I did what I did.

And I'd do it again,
because it led to us.

I don't care what your name is, or mine.

All I care about
is growing old with you.

Come be someone new with me,
and
and I swear to God, I will make sure
that no one or nothing
will ever harm you
as long as I live.


Yes.

(LAUGHS)
(CHUCKLES)
Hmm.

Wh-What, uh, what are we gonna call
these new people we're about to be?
(VEHICLE ARRIVES)
(PHONE RINGS)
HARPER: Hello, this Harold Harper.

Listen, there are a couple of
things that we need to get clear.

First, I am not running this op.

I was asked in strictly to consult.

No one here knows that
I'm speaking with you right now.

There's a good chance I am violating
several laws by doing so,
which should earn me
a little latitude.
Does it?
No.

All right.

The second thing, then,
is that I need you to go to your car.

Right now.

I need to explain to you
how I just called you
on a phone that you believed
was clean and untraceable.

- You haven't paid yet.

- When you get to the car,
take a look underneath.

Passenger side, rear wheel well.

Apparently, we can match
the transponder's location
to the location of
the phone moving with it,
and then reverse engineer the number.

That one surprised me.

I didn't know
that was a thing we could do.

I tell you this partly to remind you
that you have no idea
how different the game is
than the last time you played it.

And partly because
you've got about three minutes
before they're on top of you.

I'm not looking at the transponder feed,
so let me know when you're driving.

We can talk further.

I'm moving.

HARPER (ON PHONE):
I understand you lost your wife.

Yeah.

Few years back.

- Cancer?
- Huntington's Disease.

Oh, that's that's awful.
I'm sorry.

I appreciate that.

It's been a very long time
since I've heard your voice.

- Ah.

- Strange experience.

Frankly, I'd imagined you were dead.

(SHORT CHUCKLE)
No.

I just retired.

I, uh I read about
your son and daughter-in-law
in the paper.

-I thought about reaching out,
-Yeah.

but, uh, you know
I assume that you can
see the tail by now, right?
As far as I can tell,
these are specialists.

They're supposed to be very good,
so I'd keep my distance.

Now, let me tell you where I am.

I'm watching about
a half a dozen
high-end contract operators
fail at blending into
Caledonia County Airfield,
loitering around their chartered jet.

Their op is not to kill you.

It's to retrieve you
and put you on that plane.

No one will tell me
where's it's headed or why,
but as I sit here
imagining nightmare scenarios,
I'm aware that, with a full tank of gas,
that plane can be in Kabul
tomorrow afternoon
without touching the ground.

The nightmare scenario
is that Faraz Hamzad
wants to see you again, and he convinced
someone in the U.
S.
government
to make that happen.

Why are you telling me this?
Why are you warning me?
Because the scenario
is a nightmare for you,
but it's pretty shitty for me, too.

This story comes back to life,
and I'm gonna have to answer
for some things
that were dead and buried
in the ground yesterday.

Right now, I'm willing
to aid and abet your escape
to prevent that.

Now, I know you well enough to know
you're building a list of options.

Pretty soon you're gonna
realize there are only two.

Number one, you engage.

Go to ground,
figure out how to fight back.

You go through that door,
and I'm here to tell you
it's gonna end badly,
because the first thing
that's gonna happen is
this will become my operation,
and I'm gonna have to put you down.

I wouldn't be so sure about that.

Don't.

Just don't.

The transponder under the car.

You left a silencer on a guy
you tried to pass off as a burglar.

You aren't the guy you remember.

I doubt I'd even recognize you
if I saw you right now.

Some days, I don't recognize myself,
but I've got 10,000 agents
and a ten billion-dollar budget
to make up for whatever I've lost.

What have you got?
Mm.
Maybe I have a story worth telling.

Different time now than it was then.

Maybe now I'm not the one
who comes off looking like the bad guy,
and your life gets complicated.

You're not gonna do that.

Oh, really? Why?
Because she's in this now.

Whatever name you gave her
wherever you put her because
you thought she'd be safe
Your daughter is about to be
a part of this.

And I'm telling you, if you
go through door number one,
I'm gonna use her to get to you.

You're about to drive this
to a place you're not gonna like
when we get there.

You think I like any of this?
And I'm not driving it
from the beginning.

It's been your choices
that have brought us here.

That brings us to door number two.

Door number two is
you disappear.

Mm.
Yeah, I did that last time.

No.
Not like last time.

This time, you walk out that door
the same way
you walked in the first one.

Alone.

What's gonna happen is
I'm gonna find your daughter
and I'm gonna tell my people,
"This is the only thread
that connects him to the world,
the only piece of him
that we have a hold on.
"
"So let's just sit," I'll say,
"and watch her and wait,
and eventually he'll call.
"
And you never will.

No.
No, no.

Harold
-If you do call,
-Harold.

if you reach out to her in any way,
there will be agents
at her door in minutes.

They'll question her.

I-If she knows about
crimes you've committed,
she's going to jail.

It could get worse from there.

You disappear.

She lives her life.

And this story goes back into
the ground where I left it.

Fuck you.

You got 30 good years with her.

That's 30 more than it could've been,
and you get to say goodbye to her.

That's not something that's guaranteed.

Trust me.

As long as you stay away,
she'll never even know I'm there.

From where I sit, that sounds like
a pretty good outcome for all of us.

I gave you a head start.
Take it.

Lose the tail.
Disappear.

You and I both get to spend
whatever years we have left
on this earth pretending
we never knew each other.

And that none of this ever happened.

(HANGS UP)
- (HELICOPTER BLADES WHIRRING)
- (INDISTINCT RADIO CHATTER)
He's on the move.

Yeah, I can see that.

Just minutes before
we arrived on target, too.

That's unfortunate.

You were just on the phone
out there, yeah?
Yes, I was.

May I ask who it was
you were talking to?
No, you may not.

Son, do you know what
my position is at the FBI?
Yes, sir.

Do you think I was appointed
to that position
because I'm someone
it's safe to fuck with?
- No, sir.

- Then quit staring at me,
before I start getting the idea
I'm being fucked with.

Deal?
Yeah.

(BEEP)
(LINE RINGING)
EMILY: Hello?
- Hey, it's me.

- Hey.
Are you okay?
- I thought we were offline for a while.

- Yeah.
Yeah, I'm okay.

Listen, uh
We never talked about this
before, this, uh,
this eventuality, because, well
I never honestly thought
we'd ever have to,
but, uh
(SIGHS) Shit.

Dad, wh
wh-what are you talking about?
I've got to go away, sweetheart.

- Yeah.
No.

- Well, y-you said that before.

- Yeah.

- I don't understand.

- Away.
Away, away.

- What's changed?
For good.

You and I, we're not gonna
be able to talk again.

Not for a long time.

Well, maybe not at all.

Why?
Oh, I thought I'd covered the tracks.

You know, I thought
that you were insulated,
no matter what happened to me.

Even if I had to move again,
at least you'd be safe.

But I don't think I can be in your life,
not even as a voice on a phone,
and keep you safe now.

(SIGHS)
But may well, maybe this is
where this was always headed, you know?
Maybe this was
this was it.
This
being able to say goodbye
on our own terms.

Yeah, maybe that's
what this was always about.

(SIGHS) I'm sorry.

Remember that I love you.

That I'll always love you,
but I think I got to go now.

Em?
Emily?
It'd help if I could
hear you say goodbye.

(EXHALES)
Em?
Fuck that.

Excuse me?
I believe that things have taken a turn.

I believe that the way forward
is more dangerous
than it was yesterday,
but I do not believe
-that there is nothing else
-I I-I don't
you can do about it but run.

I don't have time to argue this, Emily.

You're gonna have to
take my word for it.

- What are you afraid of?
- What am I afraid of?
You heard me.

I'm afraid someone's gonna find you,
torture you and kill you to get to me.

- They frightened you with that?
- I don't know,
that sounds pretty goddamn
frightening to me, Emily.

Well, then frighten them back.

You've told me what you used to do.

I mean, you've told me
what you're capable of.

I
I told you some of what I used to do.

I wanted you to come home from
school at the end of the day.

If I'd told you everything I used to do,
I'm not sure you would've wanted to.

You don't know how ugly
these things can get
when they get ugly, Em.

You have no idea what I did, who I was,
and at this point in my life,
I want to keep it that way.

Who do you think I am?
- Who do you think raised me?
- And you
Why would you think I can't handle
- ugly things?
- Emily.

You have no idea what it's like
to watch somebody you love
become somebody you can't.

There are things
that you can't unknow, Em.

You can't unsee.

And I will not have that be
the way you remember me when I'm gone.

I just won't.

- I'm out of time, sweetheart.

- N-No.

Don't-don't make this about me,
'cause I'm-I'm not afraid to know you.

I'm s I'm sorry, but I got to go.

I don't have time to argue this.

No.
Don't-don't you hang up this phone.

Don't you give up on me.

- I love you, Emily.

- No, Daddy, don't

Sweep the area, scan for tracks.
