No, no, no, no! Shoot!

[ Julie ] Can I get through?

[ Man ] I'm sorry, miss. You can't. Too late.

Please, can I-- Please! No. You could get hurt.

Come on! It's too dangerous.

[ Muffled ] Help! Someone!

Oh, this place.

It's beautiful.

Wait till you see the beach.

I know it's-- it's not as nice as some of the other places around here.

Stop it. It's perfect.

Nothing is too much for you.

It's like we have the whole cape to ourselves.

Oh, Trent.

It's adorable.

Check the place out.

I'm just gonna set these down, and I'll grab the rest of our stuff.

Let me help you. I'm not an invalid, you know.

Doctor said no strenuous activity. [ Chuckles ]

Well, I don't think the doctor's orders... are gonna be followed.

Yes, exception noted.

Other than that, I don't want you lifting a finger. [ Chuckles ]

[ Door Closes ]

I'll be right back.

Okay.


[ Inhales Sharply ]

[ Exhales ]

Oh.

[ Chuckles ] What was that?

Most people call it a catnap. [ Chuckles ]

All right. So, what do you want first?

A glass of wine would be heavenly.

Jules. I know.

I know. But a little sip won't hurt.

Okay.

[ Chuckling ] You!

Just a little taste. That's it. That's it.

A toast.

To the most beautiful woman I've ever known.

Seriously, I think I gained five pounds just sitting here.

You're gorgeous.

A lot of guys might stake a claim they're the luckiest man in the world, but having you in my life, I trump them all.

To us. To our future together.

To us.

And to our baby.

To our baby.

[ Clink ] [ Woman ] Hello!

[ Door Closes ]

Oh. Well, you've settled in.

Hi. Uh, it's Kathy, right?

We spoke on the phone. I'm Trent. Nice to--

There are a few rules about the property.

Linens and towels go in the hamper upstairs.

Trash goes in the garage, and you're responsible for the dishes, or it comes out of your deposit.

If you forget the rules, they are taped... on the inside door of the first cabinet.

You think you can handle that? Got it.

Thanks. Uh, this is Julie.

Oh, my. How far along are you?

You need to know the location of the local hospital... in case you go into labor.

Oh, no, I'm not pregnant.

I'm only kidding.

No hospital needed. Not yet. I'm just 23 weeks.

Oh.

Well, I need the final payment.

Um, do we have to handle that right now?

You've-- You've got the deposit. Can I give you the rest tomorrow?

Don't make me hassle you about this.

I was debating whether to even open the house up for renters this time of year.

How about I stop by tomorrow and, uh, bring you a check?

All right.

Here's my address and number, but don't abuse it.

I don't like being bothered after 5:00.

Got it. Thanks.

Okay.

[ Door Opens, Closes ]

[ Scoffs ] Wow.

Oh.

Can I help you with something?

Do I look lost? 'Cause I am.

The damn navigation system doesn't seem to be working properly.

Oh. Who are you looking for?

Uh, well, I've got an address here.

43 Old Oak Road, but--

Oh, well, there's your problem.

This is Old Oak Lane.

Old Oak Road is on the other side of town.

Ah.

Well, that makes sense. Must be human error.

I must have punched it in wrong.

Much obliged. Sure.

Bye.

Bye.


[ Engine Stops ]


[ Water Burbling ] [ Cupboard Opens ]

Trent, come quick.

The baby's kicking. [ Chuckles ]

Right here.

There.

What?

Come on.

What have we always said? No secrets. Not with us.

Does he do this?

What?

Put his hand on your belly to feel my baby kick?

No, he doesn't. I don't wanna talk about him.

I'm sorry. You--

Just it's not his... child, and he's not gonna have anything to do with his life.

I know that, Trent. This is just how it has to be for right now.

We've been through this.

You know we can't rock the boat right now.

[ Exhales ]

Were you really in love with him?

Would it make it easier if I told you that I married him for his money?

Well, you certainly didn't hate that part of it.

Well, I've grown to.

But you won't take the ring off?

I mean, even when we're alone?

I'm still married, Trent.

Technically.

[ Zipper Unzips ]

I don't hold it against you that you've loved other women.

Well, I haven't-- not like this.

And that's the problem. [ Chuckles Nervously ]

[ Sighs ] I mean, you can't think that it's been easy.

For-- For the last year, I've had to stomach the fact that you're married to someone else.

God, he thinks he's gonna raise my kid.

He's not, Trent.

We just have to be careful until the divorce goes through.

Then we'll be together.

I promise.

I really... want to be there for the birth of my child, Julie.

I know that.

I know how much you're sacrificing.

Just give it time.

It'll all work out.

Okay?

[ Shutter Clicking ]

Want to go for a little walk?

Out there? It's cold.

I know. Come on. Let's go get lunch in the village.

Okay.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Groans ] I doubt this place serves hot dogs with eggs and lemon.

Now that's the strangest craving I've ever heard of. [ Chuckles ]

It doesn't look open. Come on. Let's keep walking.

They wouldn't leave it unlocked if it wasn't open.

It's fine.

Hello?

Okay, Trent, they're obviously not open.

Look at this place.

It's gotta be a hundred years old.

A lot of character, don't you think? Mm-hmm.

I mean, look at this bar. Solid marble.

It's gorgeous. Come on.

[ Door Opens ]

Imagine this place in the summer, you know, bustling with people and waitstaff. Mm-hmm.

The smell of grilled swordfish in the air. [ Chuckles ]

I bet they set out tables on the dock here too.

Maybe candles along the railing at night.

There's a bar all the way there at the end.

Yeah.

All right. Can we go? I'm getting cold.

Well, can you see it? Oh, absolutely. I see it. I see it.

Now I'm stepping inside.

What do you think of this place?

I think it's closed and we shouldn't be in here.

Yeah, but--

You know, imagine it in the summer.

It's a little... rustic.

Don't you think that's part of the charm?

I'm getting really hungry.

Bet there's something around the corner to snack on.

Just around here.

Trent. [ Chuckles ] Go on.

Ah! [ Laughs ] How did you do this?

I've got my ways.

[ Sighs ]

Well, to tell you the truth, I'm thinking of buying this place.

What? Not by myself.

I'm thinking of going in with a group of investors.

[ Murmurs ] Wait.

You're buying a restaurant? This restaurant?

You-You act like there's something wrong with that.

I've always heard that restaurants are a terrible investment.

Did you hear that from Jonathan?

'Cause I'm not really interested in hearing his opinion on the subject.

I'm sorry.

But you've been trying to get your feet under you.

I'd just be part owner.

Wouldn't that mean you'd have to live down here?

We'd live down here. We could get a little house nearby.

Julie, this could be our place.

Once your divorce is final.

This is a little too much for me to process right now.

This is your way out. I mean, this is our way to be together.

What are you talking about? Trent, you don't have this kind of money.

I told you. I would be going in with a group of investors.

Trent. What? This is a plan.

It's a restaurant.

It's so risky. But you said I didn't have a plan.

This is a plan.

And we don't need Jonathan's money.

Okay. Oh, my God. This is crazy.

I shouldn't have come down here.

If Jonathan finds out about us before we settle, he'll get everything.

We don't need his money, Julie! I can take care of us.

Can you?

You don't know him. It's not all about the money.

He's vindictive. I've seen him do some horrible, horrible things.

You don't understand. No, you don't understand.

I'm not gonna miss the birth of my son.

Well, you might have to.

You know, I'm just gonna leave you alone so that you can... process this.

Trent.

[ Door Opens, Closes ]

[ Chuckles ]

Excuse me.

How are you? Fine, thank you.

Can I, uh, help you find something?

No, thank you. You sure?

Yes.

Good day to you too, ma'am.

[ Knocking ] Come in.

Let's get this over with.

I told you I had proof. There's your proof.

I always like watching the people's faces when they see the photos for the first time, and yours doesn't disappoint.

So, tell me, now what can I do for you?

When I was 12,

my first business...

was selling these cigarette cards.

Little pieces of cardboard... that I'd sell for hundreds, thousands of pounds.

I had this... Bobby Jones, 1930s footballer.

I suppose it would be like a...

Joe DiMaggio rookie card or something.

I put gloves on to take it out of its case.

Found this buyer.

Thought he'd give me a good return on my investment.

He took one look at it, said it was fake.

Devastated me.

He took a Magic Marker, and he scribbled all over the back of it to prove I was wrong.

I was 12. I didn't know any better.

I found out he, uh-- he was traveling all over the country... marking up all these cards, you know, just to drive up his own prices.

I got my revenge.

I found out he was, uh, living in this crappy rent-controlled apartment, still running the same business.

Pointed a group of investor friends in his direction, and he found himself in a position where he had to unload his entire stock, which I bought, through a proxy, at 60% below market value.

The men I hired shredded every single one of his cards in front of him.

Sounds like he got what he deserved.

I destroyed a man's entire lifework... because he cheated me out of £200 when I was 12.

This man is screwing my wife.

[ Object Thuds ]

Trent?

Trent?

[ Thudding ]

Trent?

Is that you?

[ Thudding ]

[ Thudding ]

Hello?

Trent?

[ Thudding ]

Trent, if that's you, will you please say something?

Please.

[ Thudding ]


[ Thuds ]

[ Wood Creaks ]

[ Screams ]

Jesus! Oh!

[ Gasps ]

Why didn't you answer me?

Sorry. I didn't hear you. -♪♪ [ Headphones: Country ]

You weren't answering me.

So that deserves a knife to the head?

I'm sorry about today.

Me too.

[ Julie ] You know, I can see it-- how life will be with just us.

Really?

Yeah.

I can even see you running the restaurant and... us living here with our baby.

It'll be a big adjustment, but I can see it.

It's just that so much hangs on the divorce settlement.

I know. I know.

We don't have to talk about that anymore.

But I can see it, and I want it.

I'm just afraid that we--

I'm just scared something's gonna happen.

The only thing that's gonna happen... is you and me spending the rest of our lives together.

Whatever it takes. I don't care.

[ Sighs ]


[ Teakettle Whistling ]

Hey.

Thank you.

Get in.

Something else going on?

I thought I saw Jonathan.

Where? When?

Today in town.

He's supposed to be in New York, right?

Yeah, he's supposed to be.

[ Exhales Deeply ] I don't know. What if he's stalking me?

What if he knows about us?

He's miles away.

And he has no idea about us, okay?

None.

We've been so careful.

You're safe here.

I'll make sure you're safe.

Okay.


Trent?

Trent?

Damn it.

[ Sighs ]

[ Phone Ringing ]

Hello?

[ Man ] I have your boyfriend. Trent, is this a joke?

No joke, lady.

Trent, after last night, I'm really not in the mood for-- [ Cell Phone Buzzes ]

Do you understand now?

What do you want? -If you want him back alive, listen carefully, and do exactly as I say.

No, absolutely. I will. I promise I will.

Just please don't hurt him. Quiet!

Listen.

I need you to transfer $250,000 into an account.

I don't have that kind of money.

Do you think lying to me is a good way to start this relationship?

You have access to that kind of cash, and I know it.

You'll need to get it to me by the end of business today.

Today? I don't think I can get it to you today.

You'll get an e-mail telling you where you can find your friend.

The account information is the Bank of the Caymans.

-My routing number is-- Yeah-- Uh, yes, yes.

Just a second.

111011211.

Account number 45932-077946.

Six. Okay, can I read that back to you? -Let me be clear.

If you go to the police or involve anyone else, I will kill him, and then I'll come after you.

No, no, no, no, please. Please. I'll do whatever you ask.

Please, just don't hurt him.

Too late for that.

Get the money, Julie. [ Line Clicks ]

[ Speakers: Object Clattering ]

[ Trent ] Julie. Julie, it's me. It's Trent.

He made me call you. Please. Just do what he says, okay?

Do what he says. Give him the money.

[ Man ] All right. That's enough. Give him the money. I said it!

You gotta get me out of here. I promise we'll figure this out later.

Please, just-- I love you. Julie, I'm so sorry.

Please, just do what he says.

Sorry that this is--

Oh, God. Our baby.

[ Man ] Come on. Wrap it up. Wait. Don't! Stop!

I said it! That's enough. Wrap it up.

Yes, okay. I will, okay? Ow! [ Blow Lands ]

Now! Stop!

Kathy, this really isn't a good time.

Well, collecting money never is.

Excuse me? The final payment.

I need it. The rental. Right.

Well, what did you think I was talking about?

Oh, I'm just-- I'm caught up in the middle of this thing.

Maybe I should talk to Trent. Where is he?

Oh.

Are you all right? Mm-hmm.

It's just Braxton Hicks contractions. They started up last month.

Oh, well, you should sit down.

I'm fine, Kathy, really. Breathe. Breathe.

Oh, that's it. [ Breathing Deeply ]

Oh, you really are in a state. I'm gonna fix you some tea. No.

You don't have to do that. No.

It's good.

Chamomile always made me feel much better when I was pregnant.

[ Julie ] How old are your kids?

I, uh, never made it past the second trimester.

Oh. I'm sorry.

You are... so lucky... to be having a baby with a man you love.

Mine left me when he found out I couldn't have 'em.

Where is your husband? He really should be here with you.

He's out.

Oh. You two had a fight.

Oh, no. No, no, no. He's, um, in town just on some business.

You don't have to lie to me.

My ex... always took the dogs for a walk after an argument.

We don't have a dog.

Oh, you really mustn't let yourself get so upset by these arguments.

Really.

Take it from me.

My ex used to say that I had Irish Alzheimer's.

I forgot everything except the grudge.

We didn't have a fight, really.

[ Teakettle Whistling ]

There's only one thing... that we can really control in this life, and that's the choices we make.

And yours are pretty clear right now.

You can really only be thinking about one person, and one person only, and that's the little baby in there.

[ Cell Phone Buzzes ]

Kathy, I have to take this.

So, thank you so much for the tea.

[ Buzzing Continues ] Oh. Okay.

Well, um, tell Trent to stop by my place, and we'll straighten things out when he gets back.

Thank you very much. Thank you.

Hello?

Yes, this is she.

No, I don't want to hear an apology. I just want to make a transfer.

Well, I-- No, I don't understand. It's a joint account.

My name is on it too.

But he's unavailable right now, and this is very time-sensitive.

It needs to be taken care of today.

Your policy sucks!


Come on, buddy. Let's go.

[ Cell Phone Buzzes ]

[ Gasps ]

[ Buzzes ]

[ Man ] It's halfway through the day, and I still haven't gotten any notice from the bank yet.

Well, I'm-- I'm just dealing with my bank, because, you know, transferring that kind of money isn't like withdrawing 20 bucks from the A.T.M.

Well, as long as you're not standing outside the police station... deciding whether to tell them about our little transaction.

That would be a very deadly choice.

I'm sorry.

Tide's coming in. Should peak around 6:00.


[ Sighs ]

[ Exhales ]

[ Line Rings ]

[ Buzzes ]

Hello, Julie.

Hello?

Hi, it's me.

You've caught me at a bad time. Is this important?

Yes.

Well, what is it?

You tell me.

What are you talking about? Look. I have a--

I have a client coming. I don't have time for this.

Oh, I thought--

I just-- Julie.

Yes. Are you okay?

I need something.

What?

I need money.

Yeah. Your, uh-- Your attorney has made that perfectly clear.

No. This--

This isn't about our divorce.

I need $250,000 right now.

I'm sorry. I'm missing the joke here.

Did you just say you need a quarter-million dollars beyond the divorce settlement?

Yes. Why?

For what?

Are you in some sort of trouble?

It's not for me. It's for someone else.

That fact doesn't change how much you're asking for.

Jonathan, if I don't get it right now, someone will... die.

What? Who?

Look, you need to tell me everything.

You are carrying my child, for Christ's sake.

Jonathan, please, just--

[ Sighs ] If you've ever loved me, if you have any feelings for me at all, for what we had, for our baby--

Please.

Give me 30 minutes.

[ Exhales ]

[ Footsteps Pacing ]

[ Cell Phone Buzzes ] Jonathan.

It's done. Thank God.

You gonna tell me what this is about?

Julie, are you there?

Maybe this should be a face-to-face conversation.

No! No.

Yes. I think I deserve that.

No, Jonathan, please.

I'm getting in the car right now. No, don't.

I-- [ Exhales ]

I'm down on the cape.

That's not a day spa in Wellesley, is it?

No, it's not.

Are you lying to me about the money too?

No, I swear. Someone is in real trouble.

Is it someone you're seeing?

Julie.

Let me help you.

No.

No.

I'm coming back tomorrow. I'll explain everything then.

I have to do this alone. Julie.

[ Rapping On Window ] Julie.

Julie, I know you're in there. Come on.

Julie!

Jonathan, what are you doing here?

Come on. Open up. I'm here to help you.

Where did you come from?

How did-- How did you find me?

Your phone-- your G.P.S. I tracked you.

I'm still paying for your phone, remember?

Come on. I was worried. What did you expect?

You called me and asked for a quarter-million dollars.

Come on. Let me in.

I'm sorry, but you can't be here.

What are you talking about?

He told me if I-- What?

Okay.

The money was for someone else.

He was taken, and he promised he would let him go, but only if I didn't involve anyone else.

You have to leave. Please.

This is a kidnapping? Mm-hmm.

Tell me everything.

Okay, um-- Okay.

They said they were gonna send instructions, but they haven't.

They haven't sent any instructions, and he's-- he's gonna die.

Are you all right?

No, I'm not all right.

This is horrible. This whole thing is horrible.

Just start from the beginning. Tell me everything.

I'm trying, Jonathan. I'm trying to tell you everything.

You've been so difficult. This whole thing has been so difficult.

The divorce and everything-- I've been miserable.

Tell me something I don't know-- not the same thing... you've been hammering at me ever since you served me papers.

But it's true.

I'm not so difficult when you need something though, yeah?

I'm not so difficult when you need my money. Who is he?

He's someone I know. He's someone I care about.

You sleeping with him?

How long?

Does it matter?

Yeah, it does matter.

How'd you meet?

You don't want to know that. Why would you want to know--

Because I deserve to know everything! That's why!

You don't control me anymore, Jonathan.

We're not together.

Control you?

Where is it? Do you know what?

I don't think there's any details coming, just so you know.

What? What are you talking about?

I think you've got to face the very real possibility... that you're never gonna see this guy again. What a shame.

Why?

Because I think he's in on it.

Jonathan.

Does he have any money?

No. [ Scoffs ]

No.

You didn't see the pictures.

He was beaten up, and he looked really scared.

And he-- [ Laughs ]

You-- What?

You are so naive.

Someone's trying to steal my money. That's what this is.

Are you in love with him?

Do you love him?

[ Kicks Table ]

Is that even my son?

Do you even know?

Of course it's yours. You sure?

Yes.

Come-- Come back to me.

Let's be a family. Please.

What are you even talking about?

We've been through this, Jonathan.

Now is not the time!

I have to help my friend. [ Sharp Inhale ]

You're lying to me. No, I'm not.

You're lying to me. You're lying to me! No. No, I'm not!

Is that my son! Yes!

Is that my son? I'm not lying to you!

I'm not lying to you.

Please. Please help me.

My friend is in real trouble. Please.

Stop interrogating me.

What do you want me to do?

What do you want me to do?

Would you please get me a glass of water?

In there, please. [ Scoffs ]

Please?

Anything else? Please?

[ Door Opens, Closes ] Julie?

Julie?

Julie!

Julie!

Julie!

[ Beeping ]

[ Cell Phone Buzzes ]

Have you won her back yet? She just stole my bloody car.

You better not be screwing with me. I want that bastard dead.

Listen to me.

If the hypothermia hasn't gotten him, the high tide will.

Good. And you make sure she knows he started this.

I told you I'd take care of it, and I will.

I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

[ Gasping ] I got it. I got it.

Okay, okay. [ Gasps ] Is it off?

Yes, it's off. It's off.

Are you all right?

So close. I got you.

[ Murmuring ] You're all right.

You're okay. You found me.

[ Panting ]

You're gonna be okay. We're gonna be okay. Okay.

[ Man ] Well, well, well. Isn't this romantic?

Beautiful out here, isn't it?

Not a soul around.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Who are you? What do you want?

You didn't think it was gonna be that simple, did you, Trent?

Wait. Do you know this guy? No. I mean--

Sure. Trent and I go way back.

Okay, okay.

Look, I'll do whatever you want. Just leave her out of it.

Fine. Come and take a walk with me.

Okay. Let's take a walk.

A walk. Come on. Catch up!

Haven't you done enough? You have your money.

The money wasn't for me. That was for Trent.

For the restaurant. Wasn't it, Trent?

What is he talking about? I'll explain.

Just-- Just do what he says.

Move. Okay!

Okay!

Go! Julie! Run for help!

[ Both Grunting, Muttering ]

Run! Run! Run!

Come on.


Where are you?

Come on. Stop!

[ Gasps ]

No! No! No!

[ Whimpering ] Stop right there. Stop!

Why did you do that? I did everything you asked.

It's nothing personal, lady. Just business.

Business?

Yeah. The restaurant.

Like I told you.

I thought it was a pretty good plan, if you ask me.

His only mistake was trusting me with a quarter-million dollars.

To tell you the truth, I'm thinking of buying this place.

What? Not by myself.

I'm thinking of going in with a group of investors.

Wait.

You're buying a restaurant? This restaurant?

You-You act like there's something wrong with that.

I've always heard that restaurants are a terrible investment.

Did you hear that from Jonathan?

'Cause I'm not really interested in hearing his opinion on the subject.

No.

No, Trent would never be involved with someone like you.

Someone like me?

Did you say someone like me? No, please don't.

Stop! Stop!

Please! Please stop!

Look, before you do or say anything more, please let me just-- let me just speak to my wife.

Get over here. Quickly.

You okay, sweetheart? [ Whimpering ] Yes.

She's got nothing to do with this. You got your money.

Let's just walk away.

Can't do it.

There's too many loose ends. No one here's gonna talk, pal.

Okay? We look just as culpable as anyone else-- husband and wife standing over the body of a dead lover.

That's all anyone's gonna see.

Let's all just walk away.

I want double.

That's a lot of money, mate.

Don't call me "mate."

Tell me something.

How much is she worth? And that kid that's in her.

Fine. Fine.

We'll go to where Julie's staying. There's a computer there.

We'll do the transfer, and then we'll all just walk away.

Got a deal? For now.

[ Exhales ] [ Jonathan ] Okay, come here.

Julie. We can't just leave him there.

Sweetheart, there's nothing you can do for him now.

Besides, he did this to himself. [ Crying ]

Walk.

I don't know what you're doing. I'm here to help you.

Help me? He shot Trent. He killed him.

It's gonna be all right.

Trust me.

What the hell is this?

She's here for the rent.

Please, don't do anything.

Listen, I have no problem killing all three of you.

So get rid of her quick if you don't want to see her die.

You hear me?

Yes.

Hi, Kathy.

This is a surprise.

Well, it shouldn't be. [ No Audible Dialogue ]

I've been waiting all afternoon for Trent to stop by with the final payment.

And I know you two were in a situation this afternoon, but still.

This isn't a good time, Kathy.

Well, when is with you all?

Who are they?

Um, investors in Trent's restaurant.

What restaurant?

The Captain Kidd. He's buying it.

[ Whispering ] Hold it together.

Well, then he can certainly afford to pay me.

Kathy, my checkbook is inside, and I will pay you myself.

I'm sorry, but I feel as though I've met you.

That's funny. I thought you looked familiar too. Ah.

Please.

Julie, what's really going on here?

[ Screams ] What are you doing?

You could have killed her.

[ Hushed ] What are you doing?

Tie her up. Tie her hands behind her back.

No.

What do you mean no? Tie her hands behind her back.

I gotta do all this myself.

It's just business.

This is for you as much as it is for us.

Or for me, I should say.

'Cause next week, when your boyfriend doesn't show for work--

[ Chuckles ] questions will be asked.

And you know, this one-- Miss Busybody-- she'll be squealing about her pregnant tenant and her missing boyfriend.

[ Grunts ] Do we have an understanding now?

You understand.

Let's do this transfer.

Come on. Let's do it.

This is exciting. I'm about to become a wealthy man.

With a lot of blood on your hands.

[ Scoffs ]

Well, just like Mr. White-collar Jonny boy over there.

It's not like he hasn't done exactly the same thing.

Only difference is, he's never had to stick his hands in the muck.

Isn't that right, Jon? Can we just get through this, please?

Sure.

Just waiting on you, governor.

Julie, I need your password.

I need your password. You changed it.

Hey, hon, your husband needs access to your computer.

Come on.

The sooner he can get in the computer, the sooner the transfer will happen... and the sooner you'll never have to see me again.

No. Julie, stop screwing around.

No. I'm not gonna do it.

What's gonna stop him from killing us after it's done?

How about this, hon?

Honestly, my word as a gentleman.

Can we please just give him the password?

Julie, this isn't a game. Julie, give me the password.

No. "No."

Listen, the only thing stopping me from killing both of you right now...

is not your beauty, and it's not your attitude.

You hear me?

Now give him the password!

No.

Give him the password.

Julie, give it to him!

Get over here! [ Shrieks ]

I'm gonna count down. Three.

Julie! Two.

Julie, give me the password. One!

Julie!

Is your life worth all this stubbornness?

Is it?

Is it?

How about this?

How about the life of your precious child? No.

Yes. No, you wouldn't.

Yes, I would. What kind of a mother are you?

You had a chance to save your child's life, and you blew it.

Give him the password!

Please! Julie. Julie.

Give it to him now!

I will blow you away.

4321.

4321.

[ Gasping ]

4321.

[ Laughing ]

[ Laughing ] [ Crying ]

Come on. Sit down.

Let's do this. Let's get it over with.

[ Whimpers ]

[ Typing ]

What is your hesitation? You wanna go through this too?

Are you gonna do what she just did-- the same song and dance?

We'll end up in the same place. No, I just realized--

You just realized what?

I just realized that even if I do it now, it's not gonna go through till tomorrow morning.

And with a sum this large, it's gonna get flagged.

No, you're stalling.

Put in the goddamn password!

You hear me?

[ Typing ]

Give me your bank account information.

That would help, wouldn't it?

How about this bank card right here?

Account information.

[ Exhales ]

500K.

500K.

Thank you.

Thank you, Jonny boy.

Now we're talking.

[ Chuckles ]

Now all we have to do is wait for the banks to open in the morning, make sure we get some kind of confirmation... that the-- the money's gone through.

Uh, can I get some water, please?

[ Exhales ] Sure.

[ Inhales ]

What the hell do you think you're doing?

Who do you think you're talking to? Huh?

[ Man ] No TV here?

That's odd.

I'm surprised they could even rent the place.

[ Laughing ] Summer people, they all come down, all they wanna do is stare at the TV all day.

Yeah, and clog the streets with traffic.

Walk around all entitled.

They have no appreciation for the beauty of the place.

Kind of drives me crazy.

There she is. You're back.

Time to take care of the neighbor.

Hey!

Let's go. Come on!

Where? What do you mean where?

You don't think I'm gonna get rid of her on my own, do you?

No.

I can't be involved in anything like that.

You can't-- I'm not asking you to... chop her up in the bathtub, for Christ's sake.

We're gonna throw her in the ocean.

The tide will take her out into the Gulf Stream, just like your boyfriend.

Come on, Jon. Let's get your hands in the muck.

See if you can find a blanket... or a rug or something to wrap her up in.

Don't give me that look.

I realize you're not happy with all this, okay?

But you and I need to come to some level of trust here.

'Cause if the cops ever do show up, who knows what crazy things I might say?

Who knows who I might accuse of doing what?

I'd hate to see your baby be born in M.C.I.-Shirley.

That's a male prison.

Excuse me?

Oh, you know what? You're right.

I should have said Framingham.

Is he always like this?

No wonder you cheated on him.

We were separated. It's still cheating.

No, it's not. Yeah, it is.

Where are you going? You asked me to do something. I'm gonna do it.


[ Inhales, Exhales ]

Next time, don't take so long.

Here.

[ Chuckling ]

You do it!

I want you to know how it feels when people like you... put people like me in desperate situations.

Go!

If you want me to do this, I'm gonna need a drink.

Julie? Julie!

Shut up, Jonathan. It's one glass of wine.

That's the best idea you've had all day.

Should she be drinking in her condition? No, she shouldn't.

You do not get to tell me what I can and cannot do.

You know, it'd be rude not to offer your guest some.

You're not my guest.

Oh, I'm sorry.

Uh, would you mind pouring me a glass, please?

[ Grunts ]

Do this all by myself.

Come here.

Think we should have a toast?

At least toast to something?

What would we possibly have to toast to?

You turning our lives into a living hell?

Wait a minute. You're blaming me for this?

No, no, no, no.

I think that choice is something you both made.

Infidelity's a messy business. Believe me.

I've been there.

Julie, relax.

It's all gonna be over soon. We got a deal.

We got a deal, right?

We have a deal. More, please.

I needed that.

Let's go.

Out.

Jonathan, help me. Now!

[ Quietly ] I'm so sorry.

She's heavy.

I need a rest. I'm losing my grip.

Let me try your end.

Here. What?

What's this? You get him.

The man has a gun. I'll give you an opening.

Whatever you're saying, say it loud enough so I could hear it.

It's none of your damn business!

[ Exhales ]

[ Grunts ] [ Grunts ]

[ Grunts ]

That's it. You got it.

[ Gasps ] Oh!

Come on.

[ Groaning ] You okay?

We need to get her inside. I can't breathe.

It's the baby. [ Gasps ]

Come on.

I'm not buying into this B.S.

Stand up and walk.

Just do what he says. Get her up.

Just do what he says.

I'd listen to your husband if I were you.

[ Grunting ] Come on.

[ Man ] There you go. All the way down.

[ Kathy Groans ] Oh! Oh, my God!

She's alive! She's alive!

Help!

Help!

Help!

You think anybody can hear you out here?

[ Gunshot ]

Now, pick her up and throw her in the water.

Quickly.

Help him out. No.

[ Grunting ]

[ Panting ]

Let's go. Move.

Come on.

Your boyfriend, he had no vision.

Couldn't see things on a grand scale.

I don't know what you did, but I thought he was about to cancel on me... up until yesterday afternoon.

You guys have a lovers' quarrel or something?

I can't listen to this.

Huh? What's the matter? You're afraid of hearing the truth?

You have your money. Just leave!

Your husband, now there's a man with vision. Huh?

He could see the big picture. Huh?

What is he talking about?

Listen, we did what you wanted.

We got rid of the body.

Let's just-- Let's just go inside.

[ Ragged Breathing, Groaning ]

[ Man ] Shit. Oh, what's wrong?

I-- I-- I know what you did.

It was a big mistake, you little bitch.

[ Groans ]

[ Mutters ]

Come here.

Wait-- Wait a minute! Shut up!

I kept my end of the deal. Shut the hell up!

I did what you told me to. You told me to kill him.

Now come on. No.

[ Groans ]

Am I in the muck now?

Am I in the muck now?

What?

Oh, my God, Jonathan. What did you do?

I got him out of our lives. I finished what you started. We can claim self-defense.

I'm not talking about him. Trent.

You're worried about your boyfriend?

That little asshole, he got us into this mess.

He got everything he deserved!

Okay. Okay.

No, it's okay. Um--

We can-- We can still call the police.

No. No. We can't. We can't.

Yes, we can. No, we can't. We just killed a man.

I didn't kill him!

Stop. Take a breath. Think this through.

There's a body, a ransom.

Jonathan, I don't care.

I'm so tired of these lies.

Think about our boy. Okay?

Think about our baby. I am.

You are delusional if you think I'm gonna let you... be any kind of father to this child.

You are not gonna take my boy away from me.

You're crazy. I knew you were cheating.

Why? Why'd you have to ruin it, you know?

Why'd you have to-- You crushed our dream, our perfect family.

I'm not gonna let you take my son from me.

It's not your choice.

What are you saying?

It's not your decision, Jonathan.

What are you saying to me?

What are you saying?

It's not your baby.

[ Groans ]

Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

[ Gasping ] You're alive.

You're alive. You're alive.

Julie. We need to get you to the hospital.

I have to tell you something.

I have to tell you something. I know everything. Stop.

How could you do that? I'm sorry.

How could you do that? I only did it so we could be together.

So that you could leave him and we could be a family.

Oh, no, you don't. [ Groans ]

Julie, you don't understand. He did this. It was him!

That's not how it was. No. He hired him.

He was behind the whole thing. No, no!

That's not true. Don't listen to him.

It's true. He hired him to fake his own kidnapping.

She wanted a divorce, and you wouldn't give it to her. She did not!

[ Gunshot ]

Stop it.

Stop it, both of you! Stop it!

You! We are so done!

Once and for all.

I do not care about your money or your demands or your lawyers.

We're over.

Like we should have been a long time ago.

And you will let me go.

And you.

I wanted us to be a family.

A loving family.

And we would have been.

But you brought that madman into our lives.

I'm gonna raise this child without either one of you.

You are never, ever to come anywhere near me or my baby.

Trent, give me your keys.

Julie, don't-- Do not argue with me.

Give me your keys.

Now. Okay.

Do not move a muscle, either one of you.

Now I have proof.

And if there's any claim of paternity from either one of you,

I will tell the truth about this whole sordid deal.

Are we clear?

Are we clear?

By the way, it's a girl.
