Country Crush (2016) Script

You were good, eight.

You were better.

Bull.

You could see down that field better than anybody I knew.

It's a damn shame you stopped playin.

It's a damn shame I stopped growing.

Besides, someone had to take care of mom.

Yeah.

I know that, uh, it couldn't have been easy dealin' with that the way that you did.

Especially how she was at the end.

Anyways, I... came to say good-bye.

To the house?

I said good-bye to this place a long time ago.

A house is just a house.

Home are the memories. Family.

You.

Come on.

Want a beer?

What, too early?

Or too late?

So, how's this old Tow holding up?

I keep her going.

She's probably on her last legs though, huh?

I didn't know if you'd come.

I'm glad you did.

I'm gonna miss this old farm too, you know.

Alot of memories here.

Most of them good.

How'd everything go with the sale of the house?

We didn't get what we were asking for, but it should pay off all of mom and dad's debts.

That's too bad, I was hoping there'd be some left over for you to go back to school.

Study engineering like you wanted to so badly growing up.

Some dreams are meant to be dreams.

Like how some people are meant to be mechanical engineers while others are just mechanics.

The world needs both to keep going.

I'm fine where I am.

Listen, maybe we can help you out.

We got a bunch of money saved up for little Cody's college...

Not a chance.

That kid deserves the best.

You give it to him.

Things happen for a reason, right?

We do what we have to.

Things don't always go according to plan.

But, how we react when things go bad, that's what determines our worth.

Dad taught me that.

You really hate him, don't you?

Charlie, our father was a good man, fifty percent of the time.

Fifty's better than nothing.

Fifty ain't enough.

Every chance in life you get to do something good, be something better?

You take it.

Every chance.

# When dad left town, leaving mom with the house #

# I wish I had stayed, to help figure things out #

# But you stepped up, to put her on her feet #

# That's just what you do #

# When someone's in need #

# It was you, who was there #

# When I couldn't be #

# Doing some good, standing strong #

# Plowing through, keeping on #

# We give all we got, even though it ain't much #

# We show what we're worth until it hurts #

# And fight for what we love #

# Where doing right is just understood #

# We're doing some good #

# No rain in weeks, wind was keepin up #

# Couldn't grow nothing #

# With the ground so tough #

# People shared what they had #

# Cause that's what we do #

# That handful of seed we got #

# Got us through #

# Cause when the rains finally came, we all knew #

# Ohhh #

# Doing some good, standing strong #

# Plowing through, keeping on #

# We give all we got #

# Even though it ain't much #

# We show what we're worth, until it hurts #

# And fight for what we love #

# Where doing right is just understood #

# We're doing some good #

You know I'm shipping out today.

I need you to do something for me.

I'll take care of them until you get back.

But after you do what you gotta do, you come back to us, you got that?

We still got all of mom's old boxes of porcelain figurines we gotta go through and I ain't doing it by myself.

# Until we die, we live our lives #

# Just like the way we should #

# Doing some good, standing strong #

# Plowing through, keeping on #

# We give all we got #

# Even though it ain't much #

# We show what we're worth, until it hurts #

# And fight for what we love #

# Where doing right is just understood #

# We're doing some good #

Are you scared?

No.

It's another day at work.

In the desert.

Where just about everything and everyone is kinda out to kill ya.

Be safe.

Come on. One more time.

Fourth and goal.

Kick the field goal, man.

Nope. Down by 6, there's no time left.

Cody...

Hero or goat, CB2, hero or goat?

Higher.

Really?

The ball is snapped, Bishop falls back.

Well, somebody call a mechanic.

Nancy's piece tuckers out again.

Ains, it's my car.

I can fix it.

Why don't you just get your daddy to buy you a new one?

I'm not even gonna begin to dignify that with an answer.

Besides, I can fix it.

My daddy taught me how.

Fine.

I'll just be here watching the best years of my life evaporate before my eyes.

You're not the one who's going to be late for her appointment.

I doubt your producer is going to care considering he's your boyfriend.

Brad's not my boyfriend.

Well, not yet, anyways.

We're still in that fragile phase.

No labels.

You're single, until you're tagged in someone else's photo, and then it's a little complicated Nance.

The internet doesn't lie to me.

It wouldn't.

We'll see how you feel about that when your sex tape comes out.

As long as it's the one with Xavier...

Oh you have more than one?

Maybe.

Probably.

Oh come on Nance, don't be prude.

We are liberated women!

Feminism in action.

Honestly, Ains, if you think going all nature-channel on tape is the pinnacle of a feminist movement, you should've studied harder.

Well, at least tell me you have a plan with Brad.

The whole "darling daddy's girl" act doesn't work forever.

Brad is sweet.

But I have my album to think about.

They still make those?

You know what I mean.

Brad says, I don't know, I have potential or something.

Do you?

I hope so?

I'm just razzing you, Nance.

All I'm saying is that, maybe he thinks producing and procuring go hand in hand.

What does that even mean?

Um.

It means you're hot.

You're available.

You need him.

Well, the only thing Brad will be "procuring" is my music.

I wish I had your will power.

Let's give this a try.

Start.

Yes! Okay.

Get me out of here, please, and never bring me back.

Go.

Hi.

I'm here to see Brad Hayes.

I have an appointment.

Nancy!

Brad, hi.

Hi.

Um, hey, sorry, I had some car trouble.

Again.

You remember Ainsley?

Yes, Ainsley.

Always a... pleasure.

So.

You ready to make some magic?

Yeah, let's do it.

Alright.

Hey, Mark!

Hey, Nancy.

You ready to rock my world?

I'll do my best.

That's all we'll need.

Of course you will.

I know talent when I see it.

You know where the headphones are.

Hey, Brad, I was wondering if maybe we could record something I wrote today?

Um.

You wrote something?

Yeah, well I wrote like half of something.

It's not exactly finished...

Let her give it a shot, man.

You involved in this thing, too?

I might have lent a baby hand.

Well now I'm just intrigued.

Go ahead.

Thanks.

Just breathe.

You got this.

# All of those nights I stood in that window #

# Waiting for you to come home #

# Wondering why, you felt like you had to go #

# If I'd only known #

# The things you said shouldn't, #

# couldn't, wouldn't, ever... #

Uh okay, Nancy, thank you.

That was a beautiful gesture.

But I just, I just don't know if it was convincing enough.

You know the "shouldn't wouldn't ever" part, I just wasn't feeling it.

Oh. Okay.

I mean you just, you gotta sing with more emotion sweetheart.

Because you know if you don't feel it, we're not going to feel it.

You know, your voice needs to penetrate our skin, make us feel it deep down in our bones, you know?

I can try again.

Uh, you know, not today, ok?

Let's just record what we have planned and then um, if we have any extra time, we'll help you out with your little song at some point or another.

Okay?

Okay.

Great.

It's good, Nancy.

We'll get it there.

Okay. Why don't we go ahead and sing what you've got in front of you there.

Kat? I'm home.

Oh, there's my sexy husband.

How was your day?

Ooh, it just got better, hi.

Hi. Dad!

Hey squirt.

You're still here.

Yes. You haven't gotten rid of me yet.

Just wondering why my husband is taking off first thing in the morning when he's leaving his loving...

And very understanding...

Very, very understanding...

And sexy.

Did I mention sexy?

Leaving his wife and wonderful son for six long months?

Can I go outside?

Yeah, of course, go on.

Don't wander off.

I won't.

Kat, I had to go, I had to say good-bye to the old place.

I think it was important to Charlie.

He misses you, you know.

But you just keep on breaking our hearts.

And I mean, who else is gonna teach our son etiquette and manners when you're gone?

You will.

You worked on me.

See? This is going back in the fridge, right where it belongs.

Yeah.

You going to miss me?

You know I'm going to miss you, Mr. Bishop.

Have I ever told you how hot you look in jeans and a baseball cap?

Any chance you wanna trade your uniform in for cowboy boots?

Kat... I know, I know.

I just, just don't understand why it has to be you.

Hey. Are you, are you crying?

No... I don't, I just...

Baby, hey, come here.

Dad, I made you something.

What's this?

Just a card.

You made this?

This is, it's really good.

Yeah, I don't know, I just, I know it's dumb.

Ah, well, this, this is not dumb, this is really good.

It's us.

It's our family.

We're one heart.

You bring it back to us, you hear?

I will.

I love you.

And I love you.

You guys are my world, and I'll be back before you know it.

Okay? You wanna help me pack?

Yeah. Yeah?

Come here.

You coming?

Yeah.

# I know you wonder what makes a guy tick #

# I know you've been hurt before #

# Sometimes love ain't what you pictured at all #

#I know you wonder what goes on in my mind #

# And why I walk out that door #

# I don't really blame you but give me a try #

# And darlin' I will show #

# I'll never let you go #

# Because I'm all yours #

# I know it gets lonely #

# But my heart soars whenever you hold me #

# In this whole world, you're my one and only, you #

# You're my one and only you #

# Rain's gonna fall, storm clouds will gather in the sky #

# But I'll give it my all #

# Just to be back by your side, oh yeah #

I love you more.

Don't bet on that!

# Because I'm all yours, I know it gets lonely #

# My heart soars whenever you hold me #

# In this whole world, you're my one and only, you #

# Yeah, you're my one and only, you #

# Because I'm all yours, I know it gets lonely #

# My heart soars whenever you hold me #

# In this whole world, you're my one and only, you #

Nancy: I can't believe you're dragging me to this party Ains.

I'm not even gonna know anybody there.

We're branching.

And besides, you could have stayed in the city with your sexy new sugar daddy.

Ew, don't call him that.

Brad is not my sugar daddy.

I wouldn't even let him pay for my to-go salad the other day.

Oh, no. That doesn't sound good.

Oh, is that normal?

Oh, no.

No, Ains, a large mushroom cloud of smoke coming from the engine is not normal.

I'm going to call Justin and see if he can come get us.

Call a tow while you're at it.

Maybe we should just leave it. it's dead. Just let it be dead.

Ains, come on.

Fine.

Fine, I'm calling a tow.

Cute.

Hey.

Hi.

This must be your car.

I'm actually the one that called you.

Oh, yeah, I figured.

Um, so what seems to be the problem?

I, umm, I think she overheated.

I've been having trouble driving longer distances.

Shorter distances.

Pretty much like all distances.

Mind if I take a look?

Yeah, for sure.

I think it's just a small leak in the rad I can't find.

Well, you had a leak.

I knew it.

...and that leak turned into a small crack right up the radiator.

No way. How could I miss that?

It probably just happened.

That's bad.

Yup.

Do you know a lot about cars?

Yeah, my dad taught me enough.

He said if I was to drive I should know my fill.

Well, either your dad's a smart man or he's trying to run me outta business.

You have a place you can fix her up?

Yup, right in town.

Okay. I'm gonna go break the news to my friend.

Watch out for flying cell phones.

Ains, it's bad.

We're gonna have to tow it to the shop. I'm sorry.

That's ok. Justin's a few minutes away and then we can hashtag party.

Ok. Hitch 'er up!

You got it.

# Scared to death, I hold my breath #

# What am I doing #

# I count to three, it's up to me #

# But who am I fooling #

# Something's gotta be said, why can't I say it #

# This silly game, why do I play it #

# There's a battle in my mind #

# Like what if I stumble on the first step #

# Then again maybe I will fly #

# I could be wrong about this whole thing #

# Or maybe I've never been more right #

# What if I'm wasting precious moments #

# Or is it all part of a bigger plan #

# What if I'm not ready to lay it down #

# And leave it all to chance #

# But what if I am #

# I fell too fast in the past #

# Now I'm moving with caution #

# But isn't this worth the risk #

# 'Cause you're pretty awesome #

# What's the matter with me #

# I must be crazy #

# I'm pretty sure it's a definite maybe #

# That you feel the same way, too #

# But what if I stumble on the first step #

# Then again, maybe I will fly #

# I could be wrong about this whole thing #

# Or maybe I've never been more right #

# What if I'm wasting precious moments #

# Or is it all part of a bigger plan #

# What if I'm not ready to lay it down #

# And leave it all to chance #

# But what if I am, ohh #

# Maybe someday I'll look back on this and laugh #

# At all the doubts and every question that I asked #

# Like what if I stumble on the first step #

# Or maybe I will fly #

# I could be wrong about this whole thing #

# Or maybe I've never been more right #

# What if I'm wasting precious moments #

# What if I am baby #

# Oh what if I, what if I am #

# Oh #

Ainsley!

Your carriage has arrived.

Thank God.

Well, it was nice to meet you.

Oh, saved by the party mobile.

Nance, let's go, get in the car.

There's plenty of booze in the back.

I guess that's your escort.

I'll give you the address, so you can pick it up tomorrow.

Yeah, okay.

Nance.

Let's get that hot bod up here.

You don't want to go, do you?

I do not.

Hey, guys, unfortunately the shop has a strict rule that the owner of the vehicle must stay with the vehicle until it's fixed, so I guess that means that Miss Nancy's going to have to rent a room in town.

What are you doing?

Getting you outta going.

Unless you wanna go and have what I'm sure will be a wonderful time with your friends.

By all means, don't let me get in your way.

Nance, we have his plates, he can't steal your car.

Can we go?

Ains, hold on a sec.

Is there really a room I can rent tonight?

I don't even know your name.

It's yours if you want it.

And I'm Charlie.

I'm Nancy.

I have a boyfriend.

Yeah, good.

Ains, I think I'm just going to stay with my car tonight, I'm sorry. You guys go to the cottage without me.

Ok, fine.

Don't do anything I would do!

Let's go!


Okay. I'm just gonna load in your car.

The motel is just up the street.

Ok, thanks.

So, I talked to the motel lady, said there's no rooms tonight.

Some Jamboree or something?

Oh. Totally slipped my mind.

Um, well you can always stay at my place?

It's nothing fancy but...

Uh, whoa, cowboy.

You expecting me to fall for that one?

Fall for what?

I can't believe you.

What?

Is this some, like, elaborate scheme to get into my pants or something?

Excuse me?

You heard me. I ditched my friends...

You said that they weren't your friends.

Because you told me you had a place for me to stay and...

Ok first off, I've never done anything elaborate in my entire life.

And aren't you making a huge assumption?

My interest in you.

Are you saying that you're not interested in me?

I'm not saying that, either.

Well, then, would you like to explain to me what I'm doing here with no place to stay besides your dumpy bachelor pad?

Listen.

I forgot about the Jamboree.

Honest mistake.

I haven't been there in a long time.

Right, this is my convinced face.

Let me make something perfectly clear.

My intentions towards you are purely of the gentleman variety.

It's not just some scheme to get into your pants.

Gentleman's a dying term.

Not where I come from.

And, honestly, your convinced face looks a lot like your pissed off face.

Virtually no difference.

Not staying with you.

Ok, then I can also drive you up to the cottage where you can sleep on a futon with a fondling frat boy.

Or you can hang here with me, and I'll be a perfect gentleman.

There's that word again.

Fondling frat boy? Perfect gentleman?

Charlie, you still don't have a place for me to stay, like...

You can stay at my sister-in-law's.

She's got a pull-out sofa in the den.

Okay.

No funny business.

Oh, you got it.

Nothing fun.

No smiles, laughing, just serious work.

And we better not go to the Jamboree because the possibility for funny business is just way too high.

Okay. Maybe we can go to the Jamboree.

Risky. Very risky.

Just friends.

Of course.

Friends.

Hey, um, I'm sorry I came off a little full of myself back there.

Okay.

A lot full of myself back there.

I'm sorry.

Don't worry about it.

It's not my first run in with a prima-donna.

Ex-girlfriend?

Former running back.

It's a football position?

Yeah, not really into sports.

So I guess that it wouldn't impress you that I was QB1 and we were State Champs two years running?

Maybe. How many home runs did you hit?

Hello?

Hey Kat, it's me.

Oh, hey, Charlie. Hey, Cody mentioned he saw you before he took off.

Yeah, he stopped by the old house and we threw a few passes in the field.

Aww, too bad I wasn't there to cheer you boys on, huh?

Best head cheerleader this town's ever seen.

Go Ravens.

Um, so I was actually kinda calling for some advice, I um...

About a girl?

Wait, how'd you know?

Well, I already showed you how to patch your pants.

So uh, what else could there be?

You know I haven't really dated anyone since mom got sick, and um...

And you really like this one?

Maybe.

I mean, I think I could.

Well, is she going to the Jamboree?

She actually didn't really know about it, and now she kinda needs a place to stay...

Oh, well she can of course she can stay here!

Ok great, thanks.

And, um, right now I was actually kinda thinking of taking her to the Jamboree.

Kinda or gonna?

I wanna, I just don't know if I should, I mean, she has a boyfriend.

Oh, I mean if she was really into her boyfriend, she wouldn't be giving you the time of day.

Well that's what I'm nervous about.

A Bishop-boy nervous?

Wow.

She must be some girl.

Good luck!

Trouble.

Change.

Thanks, Mrs. Stanley. Mm-hmm.

Excuse me, girls.

Hi, Charlie, are you going to the Jamboree tonight?

Yeah, I'm thinking about it.

Great, see you there.

You got it!

Well, hej there, Charlie.

Did you see a girl come in here?

She's blonde, pretty.

Uh, not really from around here.

Oh, yes, she's right...

Was over there.

Huh, guess she slipped out.

This book is distracting to say the least.

Mr. S know you're reading that?

Shh, It'll be our little secret.

So about that girl, um, like I said she's not from around here, but I was kind of thinking about bringing her to the Jamboree tonight.

How lovely! So it's a date?

No, uh, not a date.

I mean, it's...

I just want to look presentable. You know?

You need a new shirt.

I need a new shirt.

Alrighty, let's see, um.

Nope, nope, nope.

Ah, here.

Try this one.

Oh, perfect.

Brings out the deep green of your eyes.

Okay I'll take it.

I'll see you around, okay?

Bye-bye.

Bye Charlie.

What do you think, for the Jamboree?

Beautiful.

Okay.

I'll take it.

He's a good boy.

Don't hurt him.

I doubt I have that kind of power.

Well, you're the first girl in a long time to catch his eye.

Where are we going?

This doesn't look like a Jamboree.

It's my old house.

The new people don't move in 'til tomorrow.

Come on.

Trust me. It'll be worth it.

Okay.

Wow.

My mom always thought that this was the closest place to heaven on Earth.

My mom used to say that caramel pecan ice cream was the closest thing to heaven on Earth.

Your mother sounds like a smart lady.

Yours, too. Maybe they should meet.

Oh.

I'm sorry Charlie, I didn't know.

No, that's okay.

She got sick a couple years back and... she didn't get better.

I can't even imagine.

I've never lost anybody before.

Then you're lucky.

Yeah.

She always used to say you don't know sweet until you've had sour.

Something like that.

Anyway, that's just why I stopped going to the Jamboree.

She loved them, and, after she died, it just wasn't fun anymore.

Charlie, we don't have to go tonight.

No, I do.

You got to keep on keeping on, right?

I guess so.

So, the shop was your dad's?

My brother is in the military, and I took over after my dad left.

And you love it?

I'm good at it.

I don't love it.

I was always interested in mechanical engineering but, it's the never ending oil changes and tire rotations that I'm just not crazy about.

So why didn't you study engineering?

My parents didn't have enough money to send us to college and I was gonna apply for scholarships, but once my mom got sick it just kinda, fizzled.

It's not too late, Charlie.

I think it is.

Anyway, it's my brother who's got the big ol' Purple Heart you know, making a difference.

Doing the right thing just came naturally to him.

Truth is, I just don't feel like my story's written yet.

My family's here.

Well, what's left.

I've got the shop and, it's home.

So, what about you?

What do you want to do with your life?

I'm sure you've got it all planned out, sophisticated city girl and all?

I don't know. Oh, come on.

A girl like you?

You know what you want.

Well, I want to be a singer, singer/songwriter, trying to be one.

I've been writing songs since I was, like, fourteen.

So, sing something.

Now?

Yeah, something you wrote.

No, no I'm not going to sing here...

Yeah, sing something. Just a few bars.

I sing in front of, like, my friends...

Hey, you want to be a singer, right?

Yes.

So, sing.

Sing.

Okay. Fine.

Whoo! Come on Nancy!

Charlie!

What? Come on. I'm excited.

This is what your fans are gonna be like.

My fans?

Oh yeah, when you're like a big star and you're playing for big towns, big crowds and big lights.

Everything's big, huh?

Dreams've gotta be big.

Coming from the guy who gave up his dream of being an engineer to work in the shop the rest of his life, get married quick, raise a couple kids.

Well it's a different kind of big.

Sing.

Okay.

# All of those nights I stood in that window #

# Waiting for you to come home #

# Wondering why you felt like you had to go #

# If I'd only known #

# The things you said shouldn't, couldn't, wouldn't #

# Ever come true, came true #

# Here I am standing in front of you #

# Don't know what to do #

# Don't wanna throw us away #

# Here I am believin', lookin' for a reason #

# We're running out of things to say #

# So much time and now I'm findin #

# I was wrong all along so now here I am gone #

That's, uh...

I know.

It needs some work, I just...

I loved it.

Yeah?

Yeah.

So, um, so you want to get going?

Maybe just, a couple of minutes.

Wow, it looks like the entire town is here.

Entire town? Try half the county.

This Jamboree is world-renowned.

Okay, would you believe country-renowned?

That's pretty good.

Okay.

Okay, what do you want?

What do they have?

Anything you could imagine.

What'll it be Charlie?

Ladies first.

Okay, um could I get a Peach and Honey Sangria.

Half the OJ, double the lime.

And if you guys have fresh peaches instead of frozen peaches, that would be great.

Thanks.

Peaches?

Two beers.

Yeah.

Thanks.

Cheers. Cheers.

# Never want to let this moment pass #

# So I'll just start to dance and you'll start to sing #

# Let go to lose your mind #

# Have you ever had so much fun in your life #

# So much fun, come on baby #

# Have you ever had so much fun in your life #

# Have you ever, have you ever baby #

# Have you ever had so much fun in your life #

# Oooh #

# Have you ever had so much fun in your life #

# So much, so much fun #

# Have you ever had so much fun in your life #

# Oooh #

# Have you ever had so much fun in your life #

That was fun. Yeah.

It was.

I got an idea. Wait a sec.

Where are you going?

Hey, do you mind if I borrow this for a second?

Thanks.

Hey everybody.

I got a special treat for you guys tonight.

No, no, no.

She's a very talented young lady who is just going to melt your hearts, just like she does mine.

So everyone, put your hands together for Nancy!

Come on.

Come on.

What are you doing?

Well, you said you wanted to sing.

Yeah I do.

But I sing in front of, like, my family and friends.

Oh, come on. Well, we're all family and friends here.

I mean look, there's Mary-Jane and there's Chip, and Justin, and Megan and Heather and, I can keep going.

Okay, okay. Alright.

Come on guys.

So, we'll start slow, just follow me in the chorus.

Uh, hi everybody, I'm Nancy.

Okay, um.

When I point at you guys, I want you to sing, # Ohhh-ohhh-ohhh.

Can you guys do that?

Okay let's try it.

# Ohhh-ohhh-ohhh Perfect.

# Today's the day I hit the ground running #

# Straight to Tennessee #

# Guitar is all I need #

# I've been dreaming this dream forever #

# I'm finally waking up #

# Cause safety nets are just #

# Something that's getting in my way #

# From making my own history #

# I'm breaking chains #

# It's got me singing #

# Ohhh-ohhh-ohhh #

Great!

# I'm alive, life is a ride what makes you feel alive #

# Ohhh-ohhh-ohhh #

# I'm alive #

# I wanna celebrate today #

# Make hay when the sun's throwin' rays #

# Thank the good Lord, every time I pray, singin' #

# Ohhh-ohhh I'm alive #

Yeah, I know, I know, I know.

# My momma raised me on a hug no handshake #

Alright, alright.

Good night. I love you.

So, I talked to my parents, they were a little pissed but I told them I was better off with one boy than a cabin full of them.

They understood.

Did you talk to your sister-in-law?

Yup. You're all good to stay there.

Okay, good.

They don't have any pets, do they?

You're not allergic, are you?

Only to cats.

Charlie, I'm like, really allergic to cats.

I guess we're staying at my place, then.

What? No.

Come on, we're both adults and I ain't gonna do nothin'.

Besides, I'm the one who should be worried.

Excuse me?

A stranger, staying at my place?

Where are you going?

What, are you planning on sleeping in the truck?

My apartment's up here.

Oh. You live here?

What, is it not fancy enough for you, city girl?

Want me to roll out the red carpet?

Come on.

It's usually a lot cleaner than this.

Oh I bet.

But picking up a couple pieces of laundry isn't going to really make a difference.

I can't unsee what I've already seen.

Perfect.

Okay, the bathroom's over there, and this is the bed.

And where am I going to sleep?

Or I could just make a pallet out of all of your laundry on the floor.

Don't be silly.

You're going to sleep on the bed and I'll sleep in the truck downstairs.

Charlie you don't have to do that.

Perfect, gentleman. Remember?

Okay. Good night.

Good night.

Okay let's tuck you in boy, come on.

I love you.

Mommy. Yeah?

Do you miss dad?

From the second he left, sweetie.

Why does he always have to go?

Well, sometimes people who live in other places don't have the same things or opportunities that we have and they can't help themselves, so that means that daddy has to travel really far away to help them.

But I promise you, no matter how far away he travels, he's thinking about you this very moment.

Good.

Cause I think about him, too.

Good, now go to sleep.

I love you.

Mommy. Yeah?

Can you leave the light on?

Sure, sweetie.

Good night.


# I've spent so many evenings #

# On just one side of the bed #

# Saving a place for you #

# One-sided conversations wondering #

# What you might've said #

# I bet you do that too #

# It always seems life gets in the way #

# But isn't this our choice to make #

# What if all the clocks were suddenly broken #

# Then time couldn't tell us when to go #

# What if we forgot what's standing between us #

# We wouldn't be so all alone #

# What could I say #

# To have you stay #

# Oh, God, what's happenin' to me #

# I've got too much goin' on #

# But there's somethin' about this girl #

# I'm workin' day in, day out #

# I find my time is just gone #

# But could she change my world #

# Not sure if she's even thinkin' 'bout me #

# Just play it cool, take a breath and see #

# What if all the clocks were suddenly broken #

# Then time couldn't tell us when to go #

# What if we forgot what's standing between us #

# We wouldn't be so all alone #

# What could I say, to have you stay #

# I don't know what I'm doin' #

# It's outta some sort of dream #

# How did I get here, oh #

# My thoughts are all about him #

# But tell me how can that be #

# I like him, that's clear #

# Sometimes a door's put in front of you #

# Do you keep it closed, or walk on through #

# What if all the clocks were suddenly broken #

# Then time couldn't tell us when to go #

# What if we forgot what's standing between us #

# We wouldn't be so all alone #

# What could I say #

# What would I say #

# To have you stay #

# Yeah, to have you stay #

# Ohhh what if I stayed #

Morning, Charlie.

Did you get locked out of your house?

Nope.

I have a visitor.

A visitor?

Didn't go so well, huh?

Thanks, Barney.

No problem.

You have a good one okay?

You too, Charlie.

Better luck next time!

I didn't know it was going to cost so much.

I just can't...

I know, Mrs. McIntyre.

Don't worry about it, it's okay.

Just pay me what you can.

MRS. McINTYRE: Oh dear, Charlie.

Can you, can you afford that?

For you anything.

But you do owe me one of those homemade peach cobbler pies, okay?

MRS. McINTYRE: You got it!

Come here.

Give me some sugar.

Okay.

Okay, you drive home safe, now.

And give my best to Harry.

Good morning.

Morning.

How'd ya sleep?

Good. How about you?

Like a frog in a bog.

I fixed your car this morning.

Wow! Already?

Thanks.

You act like I wasn't gonna fix it.

Like I was going to keep you here against your will indefinitely.

Well, don't tell me it didn't cross your mind.

Your chariot awaits.

Thanks.

How much do I owe you?

Don't worry about it.

Charlie.

It's okay.

Hey, do you wanna get some breakfast before you run?

I shouldn't, I should really get going.

Of course.

But last night was...

Nice.

Yeah.

If you're ever in the city.

Well I'm never in the city.

But now I have a reason to.

Great.

Good.

Okay.

It's just...

It was nice meeting you, Charlie Bishop.

Bye.

Are you excited to talk to your dad?

I'll bet not as much as I am.

Ahh! There he is!

Hi baby! Katherine?

Hey, how are you?

Hey, sweating like a pig in a porkhouse.

How are you guys?

We're good, we're good.

Hi, dad. Hey soldier.

God, I miss you. I miss you, too.

When you coming home?

My birthday is in two weeks, so I need you to make hamburgers, 'cause mom's aren't as good.

Ouch, buddy!

What? It's the truth, even dad knows it.

Soon, son.

But until I am, you're the man of the house, okay?

And, you know, with mom's help, you can flip those patties on the grill.

Okay, I'll try.

I love you guys so much.

I'm thinking about you every second of every hour of every day.

I love you too, dad.

Bye.

So how is it out there?

Are you keeping safe?

You know me right?

No risks.

Right.

# Crimson sky meets the land #

# Great spirit hands pull down the dying sun #

# Secrets blow through the trees #

# On the breeze I hear the ancient drums #

# I will lay down my fear, to find out right here #

# What I'm made of deep down inside #

# And my heart sings once more #

# On a far distant shore #

# And the song tells me I have arrived #

Hey, how's my baby brother doing?

Staying out of trouble?

Actually, I'm not so sure about that.

He uh, he found himself a girl.

No! Yes.

I haven't met her yet, but from what I can tell, he actually really likes this one.

Well I'll be!

You talk to him, you tell him that's the right kinda trouble.

I will.

And you also tell him if he found the girl of his dreams, to do what his big brother did, and never let her go.

Hey, Cody we gotta go.

Ah, ok, sorry Katherine, I gotta, I gotta go.

Already?

Yeah, we're heading out soon and I gotta get ready.

Okay, I love you.

I love you too.

Please be safe.

Hey buddy, say bye to your dad, honey. Come on.

Bye dad.

We love you, honey.

Ok, bye.

# Crimson sky meets the land #

Take cover!

Hit.

Contact right!

Moving!

Contact left!

RPG!

Roof one o'clock!

So, how do I look?

Handsome.

Very handsome.

You look good, Uncle Charlie.

Good?

I gotta look better than good, pal.

So where are you going tonight, anyways?

She texted me. Some club downtown.

You're not driving, right?

No, ma'am. Wouldn't dream of it.

Good.

Better than good.

A million bucks.

You talking with Cody tonight?

Yeah, eight o'clock sharp.

Right on the dot.

Well, tell him I say hi.

I will.

Hey, what's wrong?

Oh, God, I don't know.

I just, um, I haven't really been sleeping very well, and, um, I just keep getting this silly feeling, that...

Hey. He'll be fine.

He promised he'd come back, remember?

Cody always keeps his promises.

Right?

Right.

See you around, man.

Hey, behave yourself tonight.

I'm a Bishop.

How much trouble could I possibly get into?

I'm not going to answer that.

Probably for the best.


Yeah, can I get a beer?

Thanks.

# Hey sweet thing where you been all my life #

# Do you come here often, baby what's your sign #

# I've heard 'em all 'bout a thousand times #

# The same old tacky, unoriginal lines #

# We're fed up, we've had enough #

# And there's no doubt #

# So boys stay clear, sit back here and shut your mouth #

# And you're just in time for the jaded woman #

# One by one gonna watch'em fall #

# Tough as nails she won't be persuaded #

# Jaded woman gonna crush 'em all #

# A broken heart says there's just no way #

# Every one of you boys gonna have to wait #

# Could be a while 'til the walls come down #

# Too bad for the next fool who comes around #

# Look out now we're just about to take control #

# Stay in your sweet, front row seat #

# And watch the show #

# And you're just in time for the jaded woman #

# One by one gonna watch'em fall #

# Tough as nails she won't be persuaded #

# Jaded woman gonna crush 'em all #

Hello?

He didn't call, Charlie.

What do you mean he didn't call?

I was waiting by the computer like I always do, me and Cody Jr., and he never came online!

Calm down Katherine. You know, things don't always run on schedule, it's ok.

No, but, are you sure?

You have nothing to be afraid of, you understand me?

Oh, I'm sorry. You're on a date. Ummm, go have fun and um, I'm sure he'll call.

He will.

Okay, I gotta go now, but I'll call you first thing tomorrow morning, ok?

And text me when you hear from him.

Yeah I will. Okay, bye.

Bye.

# If you got the guts step right up #

# She's no easy prize, look in her eyes #

# We're fed up, we've had enough and there's no doubt #

# So boys stay clear, sit back here #

# And shut your mouth #

# And you're just in time for the jaded woman #

# One by one gonna watch 'em fall #

# Tough as nails she won't be persuaded #

# Jaded woman gonna crush 'em all #

# No No No #

# Won't be persuaded #

#Jaded, jaded woman #

# Crush 'em all #

Get lost.

No no no, man, we do it all in-house and then we jack up our overhead costs by ten-fold.

You wouldn't believe how well we're doing.

And some of the girls bringing in their demos to my studio?

It's insane.

Hey, and get this, I get the front desk to make sure that they leave a headshot.

Yeah, yeah, exactly!

What?

No no no, man, that was last week, well, yeah, she was a wild ride, but her music sucked.

Yup, for sure!

Hey, I gotta go, I'm surprising the regular tonight.

Yeah, alright later.

Wild ride? The regular?

If my mom ever heard me talk like that, she'd wash my mouth out with a bar of soap.

Well, I guess it's a good thing that your mom's not here.

You know, I think it's just kinda sad that talent has to take a backseat to mandatory prostitution at your studio.

What you're doing, it doesn't take a saint to know that it ain't right.

Listen, kid, there is no right.

There's no wrong anymore.

There's only what you want, and what you're willing to do to get what you want.

Oh, and uh, you shouldn't listen to other people's conversations.

And you shouldn't talk so loud.

Nancy!

Charlie!

You came.

You remember my friend Ains?

Yeah, of course. Hi.

Hey.

Uh, sit down! Sit down.

Hey, sweetie!

Brad! What are you doing here?

Surprise.

I thought that you said that you were going to that gig in the Arts District?

Oh, we did. But it was so awful we left.

Oh, okay.

Umm, cool!

This is my friend Charlie, Charlie, this is my boyfriend Brad, and this is Mark.

Of course.

Great to meet you, man.

Nice to meet you.

And uh, how exactly do we, uh, know Charlie again?

Oh, Charlie is the guy who fixed my car and kind of got me around last week.

Yeah, so sweet.

Wow.

You came all this way just to see the pretty girl whose car you fixed, huh?

That is sweet.

Sounds like your mother raised you to be a perfect gentleman.

I guess they just don't make them like they used to.

We're a dying breed.

I was talking about her car.

And what is it that you two do again?

Well we're in the music biz.

Uh, I'm a producer, and, Mark works for me.

Yeah, Brad is the producer I was telling you I was working with.

Oh is that so? And how did you two meet?

It's actually kind of a funny story.

I was looking at this music magazine blog, and I saw that this new local label was opening up.

They don't normally take unsolicited materials but I thought, why not?

Wait, let me guess.

When you got to the front desk, they asked you to leave a headshot with your demo, and when you did, Brad's the one who called you to bring you in.

How did you know that?

Just a hunch.

You know what, I should go. I'm imposing.

No, Charlie. Stay.

Yes Charlie, stay.

I'm sorry.

He's probably out of his element, you know, used to handling farm animals or something a little less complicated.

Look, Nancy, your boyfriend, he's a real piece of work.

I had the pleasure of overhearing his conversation in the bathroom telling his buddy all about how he

"manages the studio."

I'm not even going to tell you half the things that he said but I...

You just deserve better.

Okay?

You deserve better than him.

Nancy, is this kid for real?

Brad, hold on.

Charlie, I don't know what you think that you heard, but Mark and Brad have been really helpful to me at the label.

It's a good company.

Dude, what do you know about business anyway?

You're a car mechanic.

I own my own shop.

Well, maybe you should run back to it, because you're clearly upsetting my girlfriend.

Don't you mean "the regular"?

I mean, that is how you referred to her on the phone.

What's he talking about?

Don't listen to him, he's completely misconstrued my entire conversation.

Nancy, can I please talk to you in private?

No, you may not.

Nancy?

Guess his bumpkin upbringing failed to teach him a lick of manners.

Excuse me?

I said your country bumpkin mother should've taught you some manners.

Stand up.

What?

I said stand up.

Is he for real?

I'm out of here.

Charlie!

Please?

Fine, I'll handle it.

Hey Charlie!

Hold up, man.

We got off on the wrong foot, okay?

Come on back, I'll buy you a drink.

Okay? See?

No harm. No foul.

Besides, bro-code.

We can share.

Brad!

Brad!

Hey, I'm out of here, you're not my brother.

Charlie, Charlie!

Charlie!

Did she seriously just leave with him?

Charlie, what the hell was that?!

Your boyfriend's a liar and you deserve so much better.

I mean, how can you not see it?

It's like your eternal optimism overshadows your really bad judgment of character.

What are you talking about?

He's seeing other people, Nancy!

I heard him on the phone.

He called another girl a wild ride.

I know he sees other people, Charlie.

But if I was really that in love with him, do you think I ever would've kissed you in the first place?

So then why are you still with him?!

Brad is helping me make my first album, Charlie!

Do you know how lucky I was to have met him?!

This could be everything!

He's good for me.

Yeah, but he's not good to you.

His label is one of the fastest growing in the entire city, he can really help me.

You don't need his help.

You are so talented, Nancy!

You can start small, work your way up in the business.

You can perform here, perform anywhere!

People will recognize how talented you are and you will make it.

Just without him.

It's not that simple, Charlie.

You're thinking about it one way.

Maybe where you're from things are just...

What?

Small.

"Dreams have got to be big", Charlie.

Your words, not mine.

Yeah, but not when it compromises who you are, and what you believe in.

You don't have to sell yourself.

At least I'm fighting for what I believe in!

That's more than I can say for you.

Besides, I haven't slept with him, I'm not compromising...

That's just details.

Yeah, that's what life is, Charlie. Details.

Not the broad strokes you think it is.

Brad and I, we have a good time when we go out together.

And I like working in the studio with him and Mark.

They believe in me.

If he believes in you, then he'll make your album regardless.

I can't risk that.

You're better than that.

I'm better than this.

Whatever this is.

# What's going through your head #

# All the things I said #

# Don't seem to get through to you #

# You read your magazines #

# Thinking up these scenes #

# Where someone comes and rescues you #

I never asked for that, Charlie.

# Not sure I can compete with every fantasy #

# That seems to take control of you #

That's not fair.

That's not fair for you to say that.

# What happened to the real sparks we used to feel #

# When I had a hold of you I'm giving all that I can #

# You're chasing dreams I can't follow #

# You're holding love in your hands #

# Don't throw away sweet tomorrow #

# Look into my eyes #

# Tell me what you find #

# Can't you see what's happening #

Charlie.

# I'm slowly losing faith in what I'm trying to save #

# Can't you see you might lose everything #

This is about my future, Charlie.

# I'm giving all that I can #

# You're chasing dreams I can't follow #

# You're holding love in your hands #

# Don't throw away sweet tomorrow #

# Ohh, nooo #

# Don't throw away sweet tomorrow #

# Come back to what you were #

# Come back into my world #

# Where love ain't make believe #

# And you will see #

# Reality is all you need #

A man like me.

I'm sorry, Charlie.

I think you should go home.

Nancy, you don't need him.

Come with me.

You'll have to work harder, yes.

But I promise I'll be there every step of the way.

How do you know that, Charlie?

We had one night together!

You don't even know me.

I do know you.

Okay, maybe not everything, but I know what kind of person you are.

You can't deny this connection.

Yes, I can.

# I'm giving all that I can #

# You're chasing dreams I can't follow #

# You're holding love in your hands #

# Don't throw away sweet tomorrow #

Oh, hey, Mark.

Um, have you seen Brad?

Brad had to run back to the studio.

And Ains went with him?

That guy who came in here earlier.

Charlie?

He seems... pretty crazy about you.

You seem... kinda crazy about him too.

You know how things are with Brad.

I don't really want to jeopardize anything.

Nancy, your music is only gonna be as good as your life experience.

You're a good writer, but if you think that Brad is ever going to inspire you to write anything truly great, you'd probably be wrong.

The best music I ever made came from my relationships.

The real ones.

The gigs, the excitement?

It comes and goes.

Success soars and falls.

The music is what stays with us, besides love.

Good night, Mark.

Thanks.


Ah, you taste sweet.

Like what?

Is that passionfruit?

Mm-hmm.

Sexy.

What do you say, baby, hmm? You and me against the world?

I say, yes.

I'm sorry, we're gonna need to do that one again.

That last one reeked of cliches and unoriginality.

I mean, if you guys don't feel it, how am I supposed to feel it?

Try some real emotion this time.

It's supposed to penetrate the skin, not make the skin crawl.

Nance, it's not what it looks like.

It is what it looks like, but I'm drunk, I... I don't even care about him.

I'm the one who doesn't care about you.

Look, Nance...

I can't hear you.

Nancy! Nancy, wait, wait, wait, wait.

Don't touch me.

Just let me explain.

There's nothing to explain.

I was angry, okay? I made a mistake.

But don't go throw this all away.

Just, don't.


Hey buddy.

Mom.

Stay right here, buddy.


Bishop Towing.


You said he would be fine.

You said he would be fine!

Kat, it's going to be okay.

It's not okay.

It's not.

Okay.


Let's put this arm in first.

Why?

Why do I have to wear this, mom?

Because we have to look good for daddy, honey.

Why? He's not coming home.

Your daddy is home, baby.

# Half awake today #

# Can't help but feel alone #

# I swear I hear you calling me #

# But realize I'm on my own #

# Half asleep at night #

# Across an empty bed #

# I reach out and touch the pillow #

# Where you used to lay your head #

# No one's to blame, still it hurts just the same #

# You're the song that haunts my soul #

# That keeps me up all night #

# Because it's still not right #

# And how I long to make it whole #

# But you were meant to be an unfinished symphony #

# Walking on the pier #

# Getting caught out in the rain #

# You just laughed and took my hand #

# As I kissed your lips again #

# It still makes me smile #

# When I think about that day #

# It was you who made my life complete #

# I never thought you'd go away #

# No one's to blame, still it hurts just the same #

# You're the song that haunts my soul #

# That keeps me up all night #

# because it's still not right #

# And how I long to make it whole #

# But you were meant to be an unfinished symphony #

# Someday we'll be together, a part of me believes #

# But for now all I have, are the memories #

# You're the song that haunts my soul #

#That keeps me up all night #

# Because it's still not right #

# And how I long to make it whole #

# But you were meant to be #

# An unfinished symphony #


# You came from out of nowhere #

# Or that's what it seemed to me #

# If I'd've known, you felt so strong #

# Maybe I wouldn't be alone #

Hi I saw your sign looking for a position.

# I know you're the one I need #

# I never thought I'd find the strength #

# To make it through this #

# And if I saw you now #

# Oh I'd tell you how #

# How much I was afraid to admit #

# So, don't tell me this is it #

# Cause I have so much more to give #

# Why won't you come to me now #

# Now that I'm on solid ground #

# No, don't say that we don't have a chance #

# At the perfect night we once had #

# If you care at all don't leave me all alone #

# Oh baby, baby #

# Why does it feel that time's gone by #

# So slow #

# I wanna figure out how to turn it all around #

# Hell, I just don't know #

# At last I'm finally turning the corner #

# I want to move on, and get on with my life #

# Want you back in my arms, make you mine #

# Step out of the darkness to get to the light #

# Yeah I'm so close #

# So, don't tell me this is it #

# Cause I have so much more to give #

# Why won't you come to me now #

# Now that I'm on solid ground #

# No, don't make me think we have no chance #

# At the perfect life we could have #

# If you care at all, don't leave me the hell alone #

# Oh, wanting you is the one true thing I know #

# If we meant anything at all, please don't let us go #

# Oh baby, baby #

# Don't, just don't #

You got this Cody. Come on, boy. Come on.

Yeah, that's my boy.

Okay, I gotta go to work now.

See you on Tuesday, okay?

Okay, Uncle Charlie.

Good job, buddy.

Alright, I'll see you on Tuesday.

Okay. Hey, Charlie.

It's okay to be happy, you know.

Your brother would want you to be happy.

I want you to be happy.

It's just so hard.

Yes, yes it is.

Morning, Charlie.

What do you got for me today?

The usual.

Bills. Bills. Bills.

Nothing important. Thanks, Barney.

Yep.

Oh, if you, um, want some of Mrs. McIntyre's cobbler you go right ahead.

It's way too much for me.

Well, I shouldn't, but I will.

Hey Charlie, I hope you don't mind me saying so, but, um, we all really miss your brother.

He was a good man.

Thanks Barney.

You both are.

I'll see you around, man.

Yeah. Thanks for the pie, Charlie.


Charlie Bishop.

What's wrong with her now?

Nothing. Well, nothing I can't handle.

I came to see how you were doing.

Thought you might need a date for the Jamboree tonight.

Oh, is that tonight?

Seems like it would be kind of a waste of a trip for me.

Yeah, I'm actually playing it tonight.

I came to apologize.

No need to apologize.

How was I supposed to react, Charlie?

We had a beautiful night together, but the whole world just doesn't fall into place.

No.

But uh, you could try.

You can give it a shot.

And even if it doesn't work out, then, at least you can say you tried.

I wish you'd apply that belief to yourself.

That belief.

Maybe in life you don't get what you want.

Maybe there's choices.

Choosing to go to school.

Maybe that leaves my mom alone.

Maybe that means I make more money so she can have better meds.

Maybe that means that I can take better care of her.

Maybe not.

Maybe she still gets sick, and maybe she still dies.

That's a lot of maybes.

One thing I do know, is that the time I spent with her, I don't regret.

Not for one second.

I chose family.

I chose love.

I left Brad after you came to visit me that night.

Good for you.

I've been doing my own thing.

I've been playing in bars and Mark's been helping me with my music on the side.

And I have you to thank for that.

I saw the flyers.

I'm happy for you, I really am.

I just don't understand why you came here, Nancy.

I'm sorry.

I finished that song I sang for you that night.

# All of the nights I stood in that window #

# Waiting for you to come home #

# Wondering why you felt like you had to go #

# If I'd only known #

# The things you said shouldn't, couldn't, wouldn't #

# Ever come true, came true #

# Here I am standing in front of you #

# Don't know what to do, don't wanna throw us away #

# Here I am believin' lookin for a reason #

# And running out of things to say #

# So much time and now I'm findin #

# I was wrong all along #

# So now here I am gone #

Damn it, Nancy, why'd you come back?

I came back, Charlie, because you were right.

The connection we have is something I can't even explain.

And that night in the barn when I told you I'd never lost anyone, you said I was lucky.

I get that.

But the difference here is, is I still have a chance to make it right with you...

Everything's changed.

What, how? It just has.

Charlie.

# I did my best tryin' to save this #

# but it wasn't my choice to make #

# I was the one, who was willing to face it #

# Now I've had all I can take #

# All of my crying, trying, dyin... #

My brother's dead!

Okay?!

He's dead.

I know Charlie.

We all do.

We know how much he meant to you.

How much he meant to all of us.

Come to the Jamboree tonight.

We want you there.

I'm sorry, I can't.

Look, there's Barney, and Megan and Chip.

And Mrs. McIntyre.

We are all hurting with you, Charlie. You're not alone.

You said it to me when I was afraid.

We're all family here.

Rain or shine.

# I won't be past the point of hurtin' #

# Or thinkin' that it's worth it #

# I can't let go, of holding on #

# Here I am standing in front of you #

# Don't know what to do #

# Don't wanna throw us away #

# Here I am believin', lookin' for a reason #

# But running out of things to say #

# So much time and now I'm findin #

# I was wrong all along #

# Baby, I was wrong #

# So now here I am #

Hi.

It's good to see you.

You, too.

I'm Charlie.

I'm Nancy.

It's a pleasure to meet...
