♪♪ [ Classical ] Hi. Uh, I need a ride into town. It's an emergency.

Could you help me out? [ Man ] Do I have a choice?

Yes, hop in.

[ Woman ] Thanks a lot.

What's the emergency, if you don't mind my asking?

Um, there's no real emergency now.

[ Sighs ]

[ Woman ] Do you mind? No. Help yourself.

Oh, God, I need a drink. [ Chuckles ]

[ Pops ] Yeah.

Where you heading?

Anywhere.

You ever been there? Oh, my God.

Uh, Holden, I left my briefcase behind. Will you turn around and go back for it, please?

[ Man ] I'm sorry. If you don't mind, this is just a minor detour.

So, tell me, after anywhere, where would you like to go?

First National Bank on the plaza, if you would.

Oh. Money. Freedom.

I don't give a shit about money.

Well, I think maybe I'll have a drop too.

A drop a day keeps the devil at bay.

Holy shit! Oh, my God! What are we doing here?

This is where I left my briefcase.

You didn't just leave here, did you?

Please, would you turn the car around? Would you just drive out of here?

I can't. It's not that simple.

You've been cleared. Go on through.

Holden, drive over to the gymnasium. Park by the side door.

Now, there's the gym door. It's open. You can sneak back in and try your luck.

And maybe nobody will even know you've been gone. And don't mention this ride to a soul.

No one.

Who are you?

I'm the wrong man in the right car.


Okay.

Shit.

[ Mumbling ]

[ Clanging ]

[ Woman ] Mr. Moran? Shh, shh, shh.

I'm not breaking out, I'm breaking in. Mr. Moran!

I have the plumber here. He wants to talk to you about the risers in the balcony.

Mr. Moran, are you in the gymnasium?

He's supposed to check in and out whenever he leaves.

Find him. The last thing we need is a young guy running loose in this place.

[ Door Closes ]

[ Sighs ]


[ Moaning ]

[ Whistle Blows ] [ Chattering ]

[ Moran ] Who are you?

The right girl in the wrong place.

Good-bye.

[ Women Chattering ]

I thought you were long gone.

I was. Believe me, I was. But here I am, back for the game.

[ Whistle Blows ]

[ Door Closes ]

I was so close.

I could be-- I could be up on a plane right now.

I could be on that 8:00 flight to New York City right now. Goddamn it!

I should be out there living instead of rotting away in this stupid hellhole of a place!

At least you got laid. [ Sighs ]

Jesus Christ. I'm gonna go fucking crazy in this place.

I'm gonna go fucking crazy. That's the idea.

[ Sighs ]

Well, I'm just gonna try again, that's all.

Would you just chill out, Robin, and wait for your parole?

Oh, Denise, please. Come on. Nobody gets out their first time up. You know that.

Well, then you'll get out on your next hearing.

That's six months from now. Another six months like this, I'm gonna kill myself.

Well, you're either gonna go crazy or kill yourself. Take your pick.

I will figure something out.

[ Woman ] I saw you! [ Woman #2] I did not.

[ Man On TV ] From the testing ground outside Los Alamos-- Robin, your song was so good.

I swear, I could hear it on the radio. Yeah?

Yeah. It was bad.

I think it sounds like shit.

You, Al, put some clothes on.

[ Man On TV ] ...women's correctional facility.

[ Woman On TV ] Tiernan is known as an advocate of prison reform... and a staunch opponent of capital punishment.

Tiernan, who was for 10 years a state representative, says he is the people's choice.

Law and order, he says-- Vote for me and I'll protect you from these crazy bitches.

[ Both Laughing ]

From the South Facility of the New Mexico State Penitentiary, I'm Ann Marshall, Action 2 News, in Sante Fe, New Mexico.

[ Woman ] Campaign headquarters, can I help you?

[ Phone Ringing ] Hold on.

[ Chattering ]

Ladies and gentlemen, I said half an hour. Now, please, give us a break.

Harold, I told you I hate that picture. Kill it. We got 500 of them.

Burn 'em. I look depressed.

Here you go, sir. Thank you, sir. Now those I like. Use 'em.

Good morning, Alice. How are you? Good morning. Fine.

[ Sniffs ] You smell very good today. Thank you.

[ Phone Rings ] [ Alice ] James Tiernan's office.

Collect from Robin Shea?

Just tell him it's the girl in the limo?

[ Woman ] Campaign headquarters, can I help you? Okay.

Come on, Mr. T.

[ Alice ] Line four.

[ Tiernan ] I remember you.

I just found out who you are. [ Chuckles ]

It's lucky they have a TV in this place.

How are they treating you? Okay.

I just want to get out so I can vote for you.

Well, you better vote for me. I'll send you an absentee ballot, okay?

Nah, don't bother.

I plan to be out way before election time.

My first parole hearing comes up in a month, you know.

It's not easy to get out on your first parole.

Oh, I know. I know. Which is why I'm calling you, actually.

I was thinking since-- since you seem to be the hotshot on prison reform, that, you know, maybe you could, uh, put in a good word for me?

What is it you would like me to tell them, what an accomplished escapee you are?

No, I'm afraid that I-- I really can't do that.

As a matter of fact, I don't think my endorsement would do you much good, Miss Shea.

The parole board's gonna want to know that you have a guaranteed job... or you're gonna marry a stable member of the community or something like that.

Marry?

Okay. Um, I'll get married. [ Chuckles ]

Would, um, would you help me out then?

Well, um, you tell me... where you're gonna find a stable member of the community in prison first.

[ Chuckles ] Let me worry about it, okay?

Hi.

[ Chuckles ] I'll say one thing for you, you sure make a good entrance.

Are you married?

No. Do you want to marry me?

I mean, as a business deal.

I need a husband, fast.

Wait a second. Is this some kind of joke? No.

Huh? I'm serious.

I'll pay you $5,000. Jesus.

Could you use $5,000?

Y-You don't even know my name. Oh, yeah, I do.

No, you don't. Mr. Moran.

Mr. Billy Moran. Robin Shea.

I don't want to rush you on this or anything, but I do have to get back to my cell.

So... what do you think?

[ Scoffs ] I think you should be in a loony bin, not in a prison.

Look, I'd live with you for one year until my parole's up and then I'm history.

[ Sighs ] I won't bother you or anything.

I don't know. I don't know. I'll think about it.

I need to know right away.

Well, if you need to know right way, then my answer is no.

[ Engine Starts ]

[ Robin ] Well, there's this guy who is like a brother to me.

He was always in some kind of trouble, but he played great saxophone.

Anyway, one day, he comes knocking on my door.

His arm's all fucked up and bleeding.

He says, could I please get him out of the state fast, you know.

I mean, he couldn't drive. Mm.

He was my friend.

I mean, what would you do? What did you do?

I helped him out. We would have made it, too, except for that damn Porsche runs out of gas in the middle of nowhere.

I assume this Porsche wasn't yours?

No, I borrowed it for the occasion.

It's why I'm here, you know.

So I guess you're not too interested in this deal, huh?

I don't know. Maybe it could work.

You realize if-if we do this thing, you've got to be a little more stable.

I am totally rehabilitated.

[ Sighs ]

Well, I--

I could definitely use some help around the house and all.

I'm real good at that. I took care of my parents for seven years.

Really? Yeah.

And don't forget that five grand.

Where'd you get that money? My mother left me that money. Honest.

So what do you think, Billy? We got a deal?

Yeah, I guess so. Yeah?

Yeah.

[ Door Closes ]

Come on. Let's go. Sir, can we just have a minute?

You know, this is perfect. You didn't know your first wife either, ol' what's-her-name.

You can remember her name. No, I don't.

Yeah, you do. Yeah, you do. No, I don't. Was it Evelyn?

Donna. And she don't count.

Well, she counted when she ran off with your car, with your bank account, with that asshole from Miami. Excuse me. He was from New Orleans.

Well, I hope you got a prenuptial agreement on this one.

Blue, she's paying me five grand to do this.

And I'm $6,700 short on my mortgage.

Damn. I thought you fell in love with some criminal or something.

She ain't no criminal. What is this, a boarding school?

She ain't no criminal. I'm telling you, there's a good lady inside her.

[ Clears Throat ]

Get your hat off.

What's the photographer for, mug shots?

♪♪ [ "Wedding March" ]

[ Man ] Since it is your intention to enter into marriage, join your right hands, please.

Declare your consent before God in His church-- [ Fading ]

[ No Audible Dialogue ]

Declare them to be husband and wife. You may kiss the bride now.

It's great. You married a dyke.

What are you crying for? I'm the one that has to get married.

I'm just thinking about my second husband Raymond. I sure do miss Raymond.

Whatever happened to him? I stabbed him.

[ Woman ] Let's go.

See you next week.

[ Door Closes ]

See you on the outside. [ Sobs ] See you.

Hi.

Mrs. Moran, I'm Rupert Willis, your parole officer.

Uh-huh. Nice to meet you.

I thought we should have a little get-together chat before your departure.

Sure.

Beautiful flowers. Uh, I didn't send 'em.

A friend of yours did.

So, are we looking forward to our new life as a married woman?

You bet. Good.

As you know, Mr. Tiernan has helped your case.

It's nice to have friends.

We're expectin' to be real proud of your behavior out there.

We'll all be keepin' a close eye.

Are we understood?

Hi. [ Billy ] Hi.

I got you some flowers. Oh, thanks.

Let me help you with-- I got it. I got it.

No, it's all right. Come on.

What's that? It's my baby.

What is it, a guitar? Yeah. A bass.

Who are those people?

Oh, that's, uh, that's my brother Peter... and the little one is my son Timmy.

They live with me. Billy, you never told me you had a family.

[ Billy ] This is Robin.

[ Sighs ] Well, hi.

Thanks. Can I have a drag?

Thanks. Mm-hmm.

Dad, do I have to hide my piggy bank from her?

Timmy, that's enough. [ Chuckles ]

Well, this is interesting, a family.

[ Sighs ] So, how old are you, Timmy?

[ Billy ] He's six. I hate you.

Great kid. You got any more? All right, Timmy, let's go.

Come on. Get in the truck. This is really--

I mean, this is really something, you know. Just get in the truck, okay?

I finally got away from my own family. Why the hell would I want yours?

Will you get in the truck and be nice to them? Oh, God. Jesus.

What are you doing? What are you doing?

Come on. Let's go. [ Engine Starts ]

[ Revving Engine ]

You play bass? Yeah.

I play synthesizer. No kidding.

Huh. Seems like you're my kind of guy.

[ Billy ] And you gotta cook. [ Robin ] I'll help clean up as best as I can.

I'll drive the kid to school. I'll, uh, mow the lawn, do basic repair work, that kind of stuff.

But as far as the cooking goes, forget it.

Good night.

What are you doing? Reading.

I mean, what are you doing out here?

Well, this is your house. You get the bedroom.

Well, I was thinking that we'd both share the bedroom.

Whatever gave you that idea? Whatever gave me that idea?

Well, that wasn't part of the deal, Billy.

Well, it was never discussed, but I always assumed that it was understood.

Not to me. I sleep out here.

You know, you got problems, you know that? You're messed up.

No, I'm not. I'm just practical. We're in business, Billy.

You forget the damn deal! [ Door Opens ]

It's our wedding night, for Christ's sake. You're my wife.

I am not that kind of wife, Billy.

You better understand that right now.

I get you out of prison. I give you a chance--

And I don't owe you anything.

You did not buy me. I bought my freedom.

Been locked up for six months. The last thing I want is to be locked up again.

Hey! This ain't no jail. You understand?

Oh, yeah? Marriage is.

You look me in the eye and tell me it wasn't good for you.

What wasn't good for me? When we fucked, for Christ's sakes.

Oh, that was great.

But that was before we were partners, Billy.

Wh-What do you think partners do?

Well, Baskin and Robbins are partners. They don't sleep together.

This really sucks.

At least don't sleep out here. It won't look right.


Yeah, this'll be fine. Good.

[ Children Laughing ]


[ Man ] Oh, here it is-- Bonnie Buttons.

Oh, I bet you like this. I wouldn't fuck this with your dick, okay?

And I was thinking that I should really play at that thing, don't you?

I hadn't really thought about it before now, Robin. But now that you mention it--

A lot of people tell me I should go professional. So, you know--

Oh. In that case, a lot of people can rarely be wrong. Hey, look, she can't sing, -but, uh, she's got a great ass. -I feel the same way about that.

Hey, you don't have to sing this thing. I do. Take it easy, mon.

Newfound freedom can mean new world.

Can mean a lot of things.

That's right. Let me see the lyrics.

"Take a piece of this action, give in, give in." I'm not singing this.

Okay, so I'll sing that part. How's that? Let's try it again.

Got it.

Why did this guy Tiernan help you?

He's a friend of mine.

What's that supposed to mean?

I gave him a blow job.

Here. There's your five grand.

Is that how you made this money, blowing democrats?

Oh, God. Billy, you are so stupid, you know that?

You don't even know what a joke is.

I told you my mother left me that money.

Is, uh, that the same mother you took care of for seven years or another one?

It's the same one. I used to clean up her puke and call the hospital... every time she got bombed and tried to kill herself or tried to kill my dad, who was usually off fucking some topless waitress somewhere.

[ Scoffs ] I mean my family was not exactly Leave It To Beaver.

Was there something you wanted to do with this money for yourself?

You'll think it's stupid. Well, wait a second. Tell me.

I mean, I just said something stupid.

[ Sighs ]

Well, I started writing these songs in jail.

You know, I just needed some way to get it out and...

I thought maybe I could cut a demo, you know.

It was just an idea.

Here, I can't take this money.

Not if that's what you were planning to do with it. You keep it.

No way, Billy. A deal's a deal. It's--

Well, do you have enough cash of your own? I can lend you some.

I got some. I got a little left.

Thanks.

Can I give you a ride somewhere?

Nah. I feel like walking. Bye.

All right. You take care, okay?

Here, got a present for you.

Want to know a secret, Mr. Willis? I shoot up in my bellybutton.

You think you're awfully clever, don't you, Mrs. Moran?

You just breeze by everybody and make smart-aleck remarks.

You'll end up back in jail within a month at the rate you're going, young lady.

[ Distorted Electronic Voice ] Dad said you're supposed to take me to school today.

[ Power Saw Sawing ]

So, Bill, tell me.

Does, uh, she have them little numbers on her lingerie too?

No. Only on her panties.

Well, so, how do you like married life?

She's got some funny ideas, but I can straighten her out.

Oh, what the hell, Bill? You're a husband, not a social worker.

If she gets out of line, you-you smack her.

Thanks for the advice, Blue. Hey, what are friends for?

Bill, you're not gonna change her. Yeah, I will.

No, you won't. Yeah, I will.

No, you won't. Into what? Yeah, I will. Into a woman.

Into a loving, sensitive, caring woman. Feminine and everything.

Bill, she's not that kind of woman.

Look, you should just be happy that-- that you're getting nooky every night.

Robin, I was wondering. If you're gonna be sticking around, I don't know, maybe you can get into this marriage groove, you know what I mean?

Peter, Raphael has an expression--

"No confusion, no delusions."

As long as I'm married to Billy, I could never be his wife.

Is that true, Robin? Excuse me. That guy is an asshole.

Yeah, well, maybe so, but, uh, it's not good, Robin.

It's not good for you, and it's not good for me. No?

He also told me that you, uh, asked for a spot in my fund raiser.

I didn't know you had a band. I didn't have a husband a little while ago either.

Nice work. How much did you pay her to do it?

She volunteered... more or less.

Mm-hmm. Maybe you should put the emphasis on the less, James.

She's not very convincing as the happy hausfrau.

My, my. We're awfully cynical tonight, aren't we, darling?

[ Thunder Rumbling ] I like a jealous wife.

No, sweetheart, I'm just trying to look out for your best interests, and she's not one of them.

Actually, she's quite a crowd-pleaser.

Yeah. Do something.

She left the museum before the police got there.

Fortunately, I persuaded them to drop charges. Who told you to do that?

Well, I just assumed, 'cause of the interest you took in getting her released, that that's what you'd want me to do.
