IT DOES SEEM PEACEFUL.
MAYBE I OUGH TO BE CHECKING IN.
SO, WHAT DOES THIS COST? RONNY! SORRY ABOUT THAT, DR.
ADLER.
I'D BE SHOCKED IF RONNY DIDN' FEEL A LITTLE ANGRY.
I CAN SEE HOW MUCH HE LOVES HIS GRANDPA.
RONNY, LET ME ASK YOU SOMETHING.
WHAT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO YOU WHERE YOUR GRANDFATHER'S CONCERNED? IT'S A COMPLICATED QUESTION, BUT YOU WANT HIM TO BE HAPPY.

WE TAKE CARE OF THEM.
THIS IS HARD WHAT I'M GOING TO SAY TO YOU, BUT THERE'LL COME A TIME WHEN YOUR GRANDFATHER'S GOING TO NEED A LO OF LOOKING-AFTER.
AND I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT WE'LL BE THERE FOR HIM.
WE ABSOLUTELY WILL.
WELL, EVERYTHING'S IN ORDER.
CALL ME IF YOU NEED ANYTHING.
I'LL CALL YOU IF I DON' NEED ANYTHING, JUST TO ANNOY YOUR DADDY.
I'LL VISI ALL THE TIME, JUST TO ANNOY MY DADDY.
JUST GIVE US A CALL BEFORE YOU VISIT.
THAT'S ONE OF OUR RULES.
IT ISN'T JUS YOUR GRANDPA'S HOME.
IT'S HOME FOR OTHER PEOPLE AS WELL.

WASN'T THA GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU? OR WOULD YOU RATHER HE FEEL LONELY TOO? RONNY.
I KNOW YOU THINK THAT JOE IS A GREAT GUY, BUT LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING ABOUT HIM THAT YOU DON'T KNOW.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? SHOULD I GIVE IN? WELL, I DON'T KNOW.
THINK YOU CAN HANDLE HER? HANDLE HER? CAN SHE HANDLE ME? THAT'S WHA YOU SHOULD ASK.
FUNNY COME ON NOW, JOE, DOWN THE HATCH.
WHAT IS THAT? IT'S BLOOD PRESSURE MEDICATION.
DOES HE NEED IT? THEY GIVE OUT VIAGRA IN HERE LIKE CANDY.

SHE LOST I THAT QUICKLY? WE CHECKED HER IN ONE DAY AND SHE BEGAN TO FADE THE NEXT.
YOU'RE CLOSE TO HER.
SHE PRACTICALLY RAISED ME AFTER MY MOTHER DIED.
MY GRANDMOTHER WASN'T SICK A DAY IN HER LIFE EXCEPT FOR MAYBE A LITTLE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE.
THAT'S WHAT THEY SAID MY GRANDFATHER HAD.
WHEN SHE BEGAN TO FADE THEY TOLD ME SHE HAS ALZHEIMER'S.
BUT THEY CAN' GIVE SOMEBODY ALZHEIMER'S CAN THEY?

I GOT A WHOLE LIFE TO BE BUSY JUST WAITING AHEAD OF ME THAT SONG.

MAN, DON'T PLAY ME, MAN.
MY GRANDFATHER WROTE THAT SONG.
NO, NO, YOUR GRANDFATHER TELL ME HOW YOU HEARD IT.
YOU DEFINITELY PLAY LIKE THE MADMAN.
IT'S JUST HOW I PLAY, THAT'S ALL.
OH, THAT'S GARBAGE.
SOMETHING'S UNNATURAL ABOUT YOU.
I WAS JUST PRACTICING.
I DIDN'T MEAN TO UPSET ANYBODY.
TOO LATE FOR THAT.

HEY, I'M SORRY.
THEY KILLED HER.
I DON'T KNOW HOW, BUT THEY DID.

CAN I HELP YOU? I'M HERE TO SEE MY GRANDFATHER.
YOU CAN'T JUS DROP IN ON PEOPLE.
I WANT TO SEE MY GRANDFATHER! JOE! JOE! EXCUSE ME? THIS IS MY GRANDFATHER'S ROOM.

SCREW YOUR RULES, MAN.
WHERE'S MY GRANDFATHER?! I WANT TO KNOW NOW! YOU HAVE TO CALM DOWN.
I WILL WHEN I SEE HIM! I THINK YOU SHOULD CALM DOWN BEFORE.
YOU SEE, RONNY, YOUR GRANDFATHER'S CONDITION HAS CHANGED.
THAT'S WHY WE MOVED HIM.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN "CHANGED"? I TOLD YOUR FATHER.
HE DIDN'T WANT TO UPSET YOU.
WHAT'S WRONG WITH JOE? JOE'S AN OLD MAN, RONNY.
THAT'S WHAT'S WRONG WITH HIM.
HEY, MADMAN, HEY.
HEY, BUDDY, WHAT'S HAPPENING? AH, MAN, WHA DID THEY DO TO YOU? NOTHING.
NOTHING.
IT DOESN'T LOOK THAT WAY.
I HAVE TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT SOMETHING.
DO YOU REMEMBER THAT SONG YOU WROTE FOR ME? "SITTIN' HERE BLUES"? DID YOU PLAY I FOR ANYONE ELSE? I'M SORRY, I IT'S JUST NOT THERE ANYMORE.
IT'S JUST NOT THERE.
IT'S OKAY.
IT'S OKAY.
I KNOW YOU HATE HIM, BUT HE'S YOUR FATHER.
DAD, THEY'RE HURTING HIM.
I'LL LOOK INTO IT, RONNY, OKAY? I WON' LET THEM HURT JOE.
DAD, ARE YOU OKAY? BETTER THAN OKAY.
MUCH BETTER.
I QUIT MY JOB TODAY.
YOU WHAT? I KNOW, IT SEEMS IMPULSIVE.
ESPECIALLY FOR ME.
BUT I ALWAYS WANTED TO BE IN BUSINESS FOR MYSELF.
AND FINALLY I'VE FOUND A WAY TO DO IT.
LOOK, UP UNTIL NOW, EVERYTHING I WAS, EVERYTHING I DID, I DID BECAUSE I DIDN'T WAN TO BE LIKE JOE.
BUT FOR ALL OF JOE'S FAULTS, THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT HIM I'VE COME TO APPRECIATE.
HE DID WHAT HE WANTED TO DO WITH HIS LIFE AND HE WAS HAPPY.
WHY ARE YOU TELLING ME THIS? LOOK, SON WE MAY NOT ALWAYS WANT WHA OUR PARENTS HAVE TO OFFER US, BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT WE CAN'T BE THE THINGS THAT WE WANT TO BE.
FROM NOW ON, YOU AND ME, WE START ALL OVER AGAIN.
I LOVE YOU, RONNY.
THAT'S ALL THAT MATTERS.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOUR DAD IS DIFFERENT? I MEAN, ONE MINUTE THIS MAN IS, LIKE, MR.
NEGATIVE.
AND THE NEXT HE'S I DON'T KNOW.
I DON'T KNOW WHO HE IS.
MAYBE HE JUS DIDN'T LIKE HAVING YOUR GRANDFATHER AROUND AND NOW THAT HE'S NOT THERE NO, TARA, IT'S MORE THAN THAT.
LOOK, HE'S CHANGED SOMEHOW.
I DON'T KNOW HOW, BUT HE'S A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PERSON.
( mother ) YOU ARE VERY LUCKY, RONNY.
WE WANT YOU TO HAVE ALL THE OPTIONS AVAILABLE TO YOU.
OPTIONS HE NEVER HAD, OR THOUGHT HE NEVER HAD.
UNTIL NOW.
IS HE ACTING DIFFERENT? YEAH, OKAY, HE'S ACTING DIFFERENT.
BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, HE'S THINKING DIFFERENT.
HE HAS STOPPED DENYING HIMSELF, AND THAT IS A GOOD THING FOR ALL OF US.
OKAY, I AGREE WITH YOU THERE, BUT WHY NOW? DON'T YOU THINK THIS IS VERY STRANGE? WHAT'S STRANGE? ( mother ) LIFE.
LIFE STRANGE? NO, NO, NO, LIFE, MY DEAR, IS GREAT.
DO YOU WAN SOME BREAKFAST? NO THANKS, BABY, I ALREADY HAD IT.
GOD, YOU LOOK BEAUTIFUL.
IS THA A NEW OUTFIT? NO.
WELL, GIRL, YOU MAKE IT LOOK BRAND NEW.
COME HERE.
HANK.
HEY, HEY, HEY, YOU'RE MY WOMAN NOW.
AND I CAN DO THIS WHENEVER I WANT.
WHEN DID YOU SUDDENLY STAR KISSING LIKE THAT? THAT MOUTH OF YOURS IS DANGEROUS.
GIRL, DIDN'T YOU KNOW? KISSING IS WHERE LOVE-MAKING BEGINS.
BREATH MINTS AREN' A WORTHY SUBSTITUTE FOR GUM.
YEAH.
CAN I HELP YOU? ( door opening below ) NOW, HANK, I JUST WANT YOU TO RELAX.
YOU'RE GOING TO FEEL A STRONG BUT NOT ALTOGETHER UNPLEASAN SENSATION.
YOU SHOULD KNOW THE PROCEDURE BY NOW, HANK.
READY? READY.
ACTIVATE, PLEASE.
HEY, RONNY.
GOOD DAY AT SCHOOL? WHAT WERE YOU DOING AT THE SILVER SUNSET TODAY? HOW'D YOU KNOW I WAS THERE? BECAUSE I SAW YOU.
NOW, YOU WANT TO TELL ME WHAT'S GOING ON, DADDY? WHERE'D YOU GET THE MONEY TO QUIT YOUR JOB? WHERE'D YOU GET THE MONEY TO BUY ALL THIS STUFF? WHAT'S REALLY HAPPENING TO YOU? WHAT'S REALLY HAPPENING TO JOE? I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN.
ARE YOU GOING TO LIE TO ME? YOU'RE GOING TO LIE RIGHT TO MY FACE? IS IT THAT BAD, DAD? ARE YOU ASHAMED OF SOMETHING? TELL ME.
I CAN'T TELL YOU.
I MADE A DEAL.
THAT'S COOL, MAN, 'CAUSE I'M GOING TO TALK TO DR.
ADLER.
MAYBE HE'LL TELL ME SOMETHING I WANT TO KNOW.
RONNY! RONNY! CLOSE THE DOOR.
THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT YOU I JUST DON'T LIKE.
YOU'RE ONE OF THOSE GUYS WHO JUST CAN'T HELP BUT CAUSE TROUBLE.
THAT'S AN INTERESTING QUALITY, BUT I CAN'T DO ANYTHING WITH IT.
I CERTAINLY CAN'T SELL IT, IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.
PLEASE, LET ME GO.
NO CAN DO, JOE.
SENSE MEMORY RIGHT-REAR QUADRANT.
AH, I GOT SOME BAD NEWS, JOE.
BAD NEWS.
YOU'RE JUST ABOU TO TAKE A TURN FOR THE WORSE, MY FRIEND.
YOU'RE BUTCHERING OTHER PEOPLE'S MINDS JUST SO YOU CAN MAKE YOURSELF BETTER, MAN? YOU'VE GOT I ALL WRONG.
THE MAN THAT I GO MY TECHNICAL SKILLS FROM, THE WOMAN THAT I GO MY BUSINESS ACUMEN FROM, THEY'RE BOTH OLD.
WHEN A PERSON DIES, EVERYTHING THEY ARE DIES WITH THEM, BUT IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY.
THERE ISN'T A SKILL IN THE WORLD THAT CAN'T BE IMPLANTED THEY ARE KILLING PEOPLE TO DO IT! THEY'RE KILLING JOE, RIGHT NOW! THEY'RE NOT KILLING HIM, RONNY.
BELIEVE ME.
HE'S FEELING NO PAIN.
DAD, THEY ARE KILLING WHO HE IS.
YOU DON'T EVEN CARE.
JOE'S AN OLD MAN.
YOU WANT TO HOLD ONTO HIM.
YOU WANT TO KEEP HIM AROUND FOREVER, DON'T YOU? WELL, HERE'S HOW.
I HAVE PART OF HIM HERE INSIDE ME.
I HATE YOU.
RONNY.
EVERYTHING THAT I'VE DONE WAS TO MAKE THINGS BETTER BETWEEN US.
( Ronny ) THANKS FOR COMING, CHILI.
I GO TO TELL YOU, MAN, I DON'T FEEL GOOD ABOUT THIS.
LOOK, I PROMISE NO ONE'S GOING TO GET HURT, MAN.
I JUST NEED SOME HELP GETTING IN THE DOOR.
LOOK, WHAT IF I DON'T WAN TO GO TO PRISON, BUT I GOT TO GET JOE OUT OF THERE.
ALL RIGHT, LET ME COME WITH YOU.
NO, LOOK, I GO TO DO THIS MYSELF.
I DON'T WANT YOU INVOLVED.
CHILI, PLEASE, MAN, IT'S FOR THE MADMAN.
FOR THE MADMAN.
YEAH.
I'M SCARED, RONNY.
I KNOW, BUT THAT'S WHY YOUR GRANDMOTHER SEEMED TO DISAPPEAR.
IT'S WHA THEY'RE DOING TO JOE, AND IF I DON' STOP THEM THERE'S GOING TO BE NOTHING LEFT.
OKAY, I, UM WHY DON'T YOU MEET ME RIGHT OVER THERE? OKAY? ALL RIGHT.
RONNY.
WHAT? GOOD LUCK.
YEAH.
WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING? TAKE ME TO MY GRANDFATHER.
TAKE ME TO HIM! HE'S NOT IN THIS PAR OF THE BUILDING.
OPEN THAT DOOR.
COME ON, COME ON! WHAT'S HE DOING HERE? HE'S GOT A GUN.
DON'T DO ANYTHING FOOLISH, KID.
NO ONE NEEDS TO GET HURT HERE.
TELL THA TO MY GRANDFATHER.
MOVE! GET OVER THERE.
YOUR GRANDFATHER'S OVER HERE, KID.
OH, MY GOD.
WHICH ONE IS IT? THIS ONE.
STOP.
OPEN THIS DOOR NOW.
GET HIM OUT OF THERE.
TURN OFF THE SPRAY.
I'M GOING TO GET YOU OUT OF HERE.
LET'S GET HIM DOWN.
LET'S GO.
WHAT NOW, KID? NOW YOU'RE GOING TO GET IN.
LADIES FIRST.
WHAT'S HAPPENING? I'M GETTING YOU OUT OF HERE.
DON'T WORRY.
GET OUT OF MY WAY, DAD.
DON'T MAKE A BAD SITUATION WORSE.
NOW, I KNOW YOU'RE ANGRY.
YOU DON'T WAN TO KILL ANYONE.
I'M NOT AFRAID TO KILL YOU.
RONNY, DO YOU THINK THIS IS WHAT JOE WANTS? FOR YOU TO GO TO PRISON? WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT WHAT JOE WANTS? I'M GOING TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH THIS MY WAY.
NO, WAIT.
GIVE ME A FEW MINUTES WITH HIM.
ALONE.
I'LL DO WHAT HAS TO BE DONE.
THE METER'S RUNNING.
I'LL BE IN MY OFFICE.
GIVE ME THE GUN, RONNY.
WHY? SO YOU CAN DO WHAT HAS TO BE DONE? HUH? THAT'S RIGHT.
YOU'VE GO TO TRUST ME.
I KNOW I CAN'T CHANGE WHAT'S ALREADY HAPPENED.
THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT I CAN' CHANGE WHAT WILL HAPPEN.
I CAN BE THE FATHER YOU NEED ME TO BE.
OH, MAN, DON'T LIE TO ME! GIVE ME THE GUN, RONNY.
GET YOUR GRANDFATHER OUT TO YOUR FRIEND'S CAR AND THEN TAKE HIM HOME.
TAKE HIM HOME.
WHERE'S THE BOY? YOU'RE ABOUT TO LOSE YOUR LOVE OF SCIENCE.
PUT IT DOWN.
RONNY COULDN'T KILL YOU IF HIS LIFE DEPENDED ON IT.
I DO NOT HAVE THAT PROBLEM.
COME ON, NOW THIS IS A WASTE OF TIME, HANK.
THAT EXTRACTOR IS A VERY COMPLICATED PIECE OF EQUIPMENT.
IT'S A COMPUTER.
YOU'LL BE AMAZED HOW KNOWLEDGEABLE I'VE BECOME ABOUT THEM.
HANK, WAIT A MINUTE.
YOU'LL NEVER GET AWAY WITH THIS.
AND YOU WON'T REMEMBER THAT I DID.
NOW, HOLD IT RIGHT THERE.
YOU'RE THINKING TOO HARD.
JUST LET IT HAPPEN.
I FEEL LIKE I'VE HEARD THAT BEFORE.
I GOT A CATALOGUE OF STUFF YOU USED TO SAY TO ME.
AND I'M GOING TO HEAR EVERY BIT OF IT AGAIN.
MM-HMM.
SERVES ME RIGHT.
IT SURE DOES.
NOW, LET'S GO BACK TO THE TOP.
ALL RIGHT.
( playing Sittin' Here Blues ) ( Control Voice ) THE GREATEST LESSON ONE GENERATION CAN BESTOW UPON THE NEX IS THAT REVERENCE FOR THE PAS ENSURES THE FUTURE.
THE MADMAN IS BACK IN THE HOUSE.
YOU GOT THAT RIGHT.
