THANK Y'ALL. THANK Y'ALL.

WE LET ALEX SHINE A LITTLE BIT ON THAT LAST ONE.

THE BAD NEWS IS MY MAN WON'T BE WITH US TOO MUCH LONGER.

HE'S DECIDED TO LEAVE THE NEST.

FLY OFF ON HIS OWN.

[LAUGHS]

THINK YOU CAN HANDLE IT?

[AUDIENCE GROANS]

ALL RIGHT. 2, 3, 4...

[NEW SONG STARTS]

LOOK, THERE'S A REASON WHY YOU CAN GET A BIG HOUSE IN THE STICKS FOR DIRT CHEAP.

IT'S A WASTELAND.

IT'S NOT SET.

I MEAN, ONE DAY SHE WANTS TO GO, THE NEXT SHE WANTS TO STAY. SHE'S ALL OVER THE MAP.

IT'S A PREGNANCY THING.

WELL, IF YOU THINK IT'S SUCH A GREAT IDEA, THEN WHY WAIT?

I KNEW IT.

YOU DON'T WANNA GO.

YOU DON'T WANNA GO.IT'LL BE FINE.

3 HOURS AWAY?

I'M NEVER GONNA SEE YOU.

I JUST CAN'T IMAGINE RAISING A BABY IN THE CITY.

THIS HOUSE, IT IS LIKE A MALIBU BARBIE DREAM HOUSE.

I MEAN, THIS WOULD BE A PROJECT FOR ME, NOT SOME CLIENT.

AND ALEX IS COOL WITH IT?

ABSOLUTELY.

I MEAN, HE'S IN THE MIDDLE OF FINISHING UP ALL THESE DEMOS AND EVEN IF JUST A COUPLE OF THEM PAY OFF, THEN HE CAN SUPPORT ME.

I'M VERY HAPPY FOR YOU.

THANK YOU.

OH, GOD.

[SIGHS]

YOU KNOW WHAT THAT LOOK WAS, RIGHT?

YES, I DO. AHEM.

I UNDERSTAND YOU'RE STRAPPED, BUT SHE'D BE JUST AS HAPPY WITH A PLACEHOLDER RING.

I DON'T WANNA BE THAT GUY.

I'M NOT GONNA GET HER A PIECE OF SHIT.

OK, OK.

I THOUGHT MAYBE YOU WERE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO DOESN'T BELIEVE IN MARRIAGE.

YOUR PARENTS WERE MARRIED, RIGHT?

3 TIMES EACH.

AHA.

NOW WE'RE GETTING SOMEPLACE.

OH, SO SORRY.

WHEN YOU STARE AT US WHILE YOU'RE TALKING, THEN WE KNOW YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT US.

OH, WOMEN HAVE AMAZING POWERS.

UH, CAN I GET YOU A NON-ALCOHOLIC BEER?

NO, WE HAVE TO GO BACK TO THE OFFICE.

WE HAVE TO FINISH UP SOME WORK.

WORK? YEAH.

YEAH, YOU GUYS ARE GOING TO CHIPPENDALE'S WHERE SOME OILY GUYS GONNA GIVE HER A LAP DANCE.

I DON'T HAVE A LAP.

[LAUGHTER]

BYE.

MAY I?

MAY YOU WHAT?

WHAT ARE YOU--OH, GOD!

OH, MY GOD, MY BACK!

I-IT'S ALL THESE THINGS I NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT BEFORE.

LIKE, I DON'T HAVE A LITTLE BROTHER, I DON'T HAVE A LITTLE SISTER, I NEVER EVEN BABYSAT, AND NOW I WORRY ABOUT EVERYTHING, LIKE, WHAT IF I DROP HIM ON HIS HEAD?

NO, I'M BEING SERIOUS.

THEY COME WITH SKULLS.

MY MOTHER'S A DISASTER.

I MEAN, WHAT IF THAT'S GENETIC?

WHAT IF I INHERIT ALL HER MATERNAL INCOMPETENCE?

I DON'T THINK THERE'S A GENE FOR THAT, PENNY.

PENNY?

[EXHALING DEEPLY]

PENNY? OH, MY GOD.

[BREATHING DEEPLY]OK.

IT'S GONNA BE OK. OK.

[BEEP OF ANSWERING MACHINE]

Penny: HEY, I KNOW YOU'RE WORKING, BUT I TALKED TO THE REALTOR IN STANTON.

I TOLD HIM IF HE CUT HIS FEE IN HALF, WE COULD CLOSE THE DEAL RIGHT NOW.

HE MUST BE SICK OF MY HAGGLING BECAUSE HE WENT FOR IT.

I JUST THINK WE HAVE TO DO IT.

IT'S SUCH A STEAL.

WE'D BE CRAZY TO PASS THIS UP.

AND I REALLY BELIEVE I CAN TURN IT INTO SOMETHING SPECTACULAR.

ANYWAY, I'LL GRAB SOMETHING FROM CARMINE'S ON THE WAY HOME.

WE CAN START HAMMERING IT OUT.

[DOOR OPENS, CLOSES]

I JUST WANNA MAKE SURE YOU'RE OK WITH THIS.

IF YOU'RE HAVING ANY DOUBTS AT ALL, JUST LET ME KNOW.

OK? I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO YELL.

I CAN HEAR YOU THROUGH THE MONITOR.

OK.

YEAH, PUT IT BACK ON THE SHELF.

[STATIC]

I THINK YOU HAVE IT POINTING AT THE CEILING.

YOU NEED TO POINT IT DOWN TO THE CRIB.

[STATIC]

ALL RIGHT, THAT'S IT.

JUST MOVE IT A LITTLE BIT TO THE LEFT.

[GASPS]

WHAT'S WRONG?

OH, GOD.

WHERE ARE YOU TAKING MY MOM?

I'M SORRY, BABE.

I LOVE YOUR MOTHER, BUT THE EFFECT WITH THE CAMERA WAS A LITTLE CREEPY.

WELL, WHAT ABOUT THE MONITOR?

IT'S GOOD.

MOVE IT TWO INCHES TO THE RIGHT.

[BABY MURMURING]

[BABY CRYING]

WHAT'S GOIN' ON WITH HIM?

I DON'T KNOW, BUT I CANNOT GO BACK IN THERE.

[BABY CRYING]

WHY DON'T YOU TAKE HIM INSIDE?

[CONSTRUCTION NOISES]


I'M GONNA THROW UP.

HOW COULD WE NOT KNOW?

WE SAW IT ON A SUNDAY.

WE MOVED IN ON A SUNDAY.

WE CAN'T LIVE LIKE THIS.

WITH TANNER NOT SLEEPING?

IT WAS HIS FIRST NIGHT LIKE THAT.

WE'LL--WE'LL GET REST.

I COULD HEAR YOU ALL THE WAY UPSTAIRS IN THE BATHROOM.

OH, I DIDN'T KNOW I WAS THAT LOUD.

NO, IT MUST BE THE PIPES.

JUST ANOTHER CHARMING IDIOSYNCRASY OF THIS HOUSE.

I--I GOT IT.

YOU KNOW, I DON'T LIKE YOU LEAVING THE BABY ALONE UP THERE LIKE THAT.

NO, I--I--I'VE GOT THE INTERNET HOOKED UP.

HE'S JUST WATCHING FLORIN.

LOOK WHAT I FOUND IN THE GUEST ROOM.

I FOUND YOUR BLANKIE.

YEAH.

YEAH, DO YOU LIKE THAT?

OW!

GOD, WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH YOU?

GOD!

DID YOU NOT THINK TO CHECK THE WATER?

I DID CHECK IT WHEN I WAS FILLING IT UP.

OH, MY GOD.

IF I HADN'T COME IN HERE--.

I CAN'T EVEN LEAVE THE BABY ALONE WITH YOU FOR ONE MINUTE.

I CAN'T DO EVERYTHING MYSELF.

NO, JUST GO.

I'VE GOT IT. DON'T EVEN.

[BABY CRYING]

DON'T YELL AT ME, ALL RIGHT?

I'M TIRED AND I'M-- I'M SCARED.

WHAT ARE YOU SCARED OF?

AHH. I SAW...

WHAT?

SOMEBODY IN THE HOUSE.

IT WAS THROUGH THE MIRROR.

SHE RAN BY AND THEN SHE WAS GONE.

I DON'T KNOW. MAYBE I WAS ASLEEP.

I CAN'T EVEN SEE STRAIGHT ANYMORE.

I'M LOSING IT, TOO.

THEY SAY PEOPLE START TO HALLUCINATE.

IT'S A FACT.

I GOOGLED IT.

[BOTH CHUCKLING]

I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN STAND MUCH MORE OF THIS.

I NEED TO SLEEP.

I MEAN, HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN?

FIVE DAYS?

SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

I'VE LOST TRACK.

[SIGHS]

IT'LL GET BETTER.

I PROMISE.

[CONSTRUCTION NOISES CONTINUE]

[BABY CRYING]

AT LEAST YOU'RE SLEEPING.

CAN YOU TURN OUT THE LIGHT?

[YAWNING]

[BABY CRYING]

OHH.

[BABY CRYING]

I CAN HANDLE IT.

I CAN HANDLE IT.

[ENGINE STARTING]

[BABY COOING]

I KNOW WE HAVEN'T KNOWN EACH OTHER, JUST MAYBE A FEW MONTHS NOW, BUT...NORMALLY I'M NOT A TRAIN WRECK.

YOU KNOW, I'M ACTUALLY REALLY FUN.

LIKE, NOT LIKE PARTY GIRL FUN, BUT...FUN.

[CONSTRUCTION NOISES CONTINUE]

DAMN IT!

[SIGHS]

[SIGHS]

PRETEND YOU DIDN'T SEE THAT.

IF DADDY SELLS ONE OF HIS DEMOS... HE'LL PAY FOR THERAPY.

FOR BOTH OF US.


Michael: HEY, ALEX. IT'S MICHAEL. FRIDAY.

I LEFT A MESSAGE FOR YOU THE OTHER DAY.

HOW'S THE HOUSE?

ALL THAT PEACE AND QUIET DRIVING YOU CRAZY YET?

JOHANNA AND I WOULD LOVE TO COME DOWN AND, UH, CHECK THE PLACE OUT.

I'M SURE YOU'RE READY TO GET DRUNK AND ADMIT THAT YOU SCREWED UP.

BECAUSE YOU KNOW YOU SCREWED UP, RIGHT?

BIG TIME. WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?

[VOICES OVERLAPPING] THIS IS YOUR LIFE NOW.

WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE IS NOTHING BUT THAT HOUSE.

YOU HAVEN'T WRITTEN A DEMO, NOT ONE VERSE, NOT ONE NOTE OF MUSIC THE WHOLE TIME YOU'VE BEEN HERE.

YOU JUST STAGGER AROUND LIKE A ZOMBIE, HAVING NIGHTMARES ABOUT A WOMAN, BECAUSE SHE TOLD YOU SHE SAW A WOMAN IN THE HOUSE.

SHE PUT IT IN YOUR HEAD AND NOW LOOK AT YOU.

IS THAT WHAT YOU WANTED?

WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?

DID YOU NOT SEE TANNER SITTING HERE RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU?

WHY DID YOU LEAVE HIM AT THE TOP OF THE STAIRS?

I DIDN'T PUT HIM THERE!

Y-Y-YOU'RE TELLING ME THAT Y-Y-YOU DIDN'T PUT HIM IN THE WAGON AND SET HIM RIGHT THERE?

YES, I PUT HIM IN THE WAGON, BUT I HAD HIM IN THE NURSERY.

YOU JUST SAID YOU DIDN'T PUT HIM IN THERE.

DID YOU OR DID YOU NOT--

I DIDN'T PUT HIM AT THE TOP OF THE STAIRS, ALEX!

OK. Y-YOU HAVE GOT TO MANAGE THIS SITUATION BETTER, ALL RIGHT?

I DID NOT PUT HIM AT THE TOP OF THE STAIRS, ALEX!

YOU JUST SAID YOU PUT HIM IN THE WAGON!

I DIDN'T. YOU'RE WALKING AROUND IN A COMPLETE STUPOR!

OK, I GOTTA GET OUTTA HERE.

IT WAS PROBABLY YOU!

I'M GONNA GO TO THE STORE.


[CRUNCHING]

SWEETIE, PUT SOME SHOES ON.

WHAT'S WRONG?

NOTHING. I, UH...

ARE YOU SURE YOU'RE OK TO DRIVE?

UH...

I JUST DRIFTED OFF FOR A SECOND.

YOU FORGOT THE LIST. I TALKED TO DR. GORDON.

HE SAID TRY GRIPE WATER.

HE MAY BE HAVING GAS AT NIGHT.

GRIPE WATER.

ALL RIGHT.

ARE YOU SURE YOU'RE OK TO LEAVE?

I'M FINE.

I'M FINE.

OK.

DON'T BE GONE LONG.

[BABY MURMURING]

[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC PLAYING]


THANK YOU.

[SIGHS]

WHOA!

FOR A SECOND THERE, I THOUGHT YOU WERE THE GRIM REAPER.

I'M TOO YOUNG TO DIE!

[BEEPING]

SO I WOULD NORMALLY NEVER ASK A CUSTOMER THIS, BUT, UM, ARE YOU OK?

YEAH.

I'M HANGIN' IN THERE, I SUPPOSE.

NEW BABY?

5 MONTHS OLD.

OH.

DOESN'T SLEEP?

NOW WHEN HE'S SUPPOSED TO.

HE'S GOT IT ALL UPSIDE-DOWN.

[SIGHS] THEY GOT A TERM FOR IT.

IT'S CALLED DAY/NIGHT CONFUSION.

THAT'D BE A REALLY GOOD NAME FOR A BAND.

[BEEPING]

WHAT?

YOU LIKE BABIES?

UM, I WOULDN'T CHOOSE TO LIKE, HANG OUT WITH ONE, BUT I KNOW SOMETIMES IT CAN'T BE HELPED.

ARE YOU ASKING ME IF I'LL BABY-SIT FOR YOU?

YEAH.

YEAH. YES.

DOES YOUR TV WORK?

YOU'LL DO IT?

YOU DIDN'T ANSWER MY QUESTION ABOUT THE TV.

OK, ALL RIGHT, LOOK, OUR CABLE DOESN'T WORK.

OH.

BUT OUR DVD PLAYER WORKS GREAT.

OK, OK. TAKE IT EASY.

OK, SO YOU'LL DO IT?

I MEAN, WE JUST NEED SOMEONE TO--WHO WILL, UH, TO STAY THE NIGHT WITH THE BABY.

THAT, I MEAN, THAT'S IT.

OK. I CAN TRUST YOU?

YOU CAN TOTALLY TRUST ME.

LIKE, I'M NOT GONNA TOUCH YOUR LIQUOR CABINET.

I HAD ONE TOO MANY WINE COOLERS ONCE WHEN I WAS 14, SO I DON'T TOUCH THE STUFF.

SMART GIRL.

YEAH.

SO, UM, I NORMALLY WOULD ASK 10 AN HOUR, BUT SINCE I'M GONNA BE DOING THIS OVERNIGHT--

WHATEVER YOU WANT. I MEAN...HERE.

OK. [CHUCKLES]

YEAH, YOU JUST GAVE ME A HUNDRED, SO...

[CHUCKLES]


HI.

SO I HAVE A BABY BROTHER AND A BABY SISTER.

AND MY OLDER SISTER HAS A BABY.

AND MY OLDER BROTHER HAS A BABY.

YOU WANNA HEAR ABOUT MY COUSINS?

NO, THAT'S... NO, THAT'S GOOD.

NICE PLACE.

SO, UM, IF HE SLEEPS, THEN YOU CAN BRING HIM UPSTAIRS TO HIS CRIB.

BUT WHAT'S BEEN HAPPENING SINCE WE MOVED IN HERE IS HE WAKES UP EVERY 15 MINUTES.

IF THAT'S THE CASE, I WOULD JUST KEEP HIM DOWN HERE.

YOU KNOW YOU DON'T PUT HIM TO SLEEP ON HIS BELLY, RIGHT?

YEAH, OF COURSE.

AND IF HE---IF HE'S SLEEPIN' AND YOU GET TIRED, YOU KNOW, YOU CAN JUST CRASH OUT ON THE COUCH.

OR WE HAVE COKE IN THE FRIDGE.

OR, UM, COFFEE. WE HAVE A COFFEE MAKER.

NO, I DON'T DO CAFFEINE.

REALLY?

SHE DOESN'T DRINK EITHER.

AND NO RED MEAT.

IF THAT MATTERS.

[CHUCKLES]

WELL, THAT'S ACTUALLY KIND OF COOL.

BUT REALLY, I DON'T WANT YOU TO WORRY ABOUT ME.

OR THE BABY, OF COURSE.

I SLEPT ALL DAY.

[MUFFLED] SO THIS IS NOT GONNA BE A PROBLEM FOR ME TO MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT.

[NORMAL VOICE] BUT YOU KNOW WHAT I CAN'T DO?

HMM?

I CAN'T CARRY BOTH OF YOU GUYS UPSTAIRS.

SO, UH, Y'ALL MIGHT WANT TO BE THINKING ABOUT BED, HUH?

YEAH.

YEAH.

YOU GUYS NEED ONE OF THOSE, LIKE, ELECTRIC CHAIRS THAT CARRIES YOU UP AND DOWN THE STAIRS.

WHAT?

NOTHING.

NEVER MIND.

ELECTRIC CHAIR.

I THINK SHE WAS MAKING A JOKE.

[SIGHS]

[SIGHS]

THANK YOU FOR THIS.

YOU WERE RIGHT.

[SIGHS]

I LOVE HEARING YOU SAY I'M RIGHT.

GET SOME SLEEP.

YOU DON'T THINK THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG WITH THIS PLACE, DO YOU?

I THINK ONE GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP AND ALL THIS SHIT'S GONNA GO AWAY.

OK?

YEAH.

[BABY MURMURING]


[SQUEAK]


HAL?

WE'RE DOING GOOD DOWN HERE.

I THINK HE'S GONNA STAY DOWN FOR A WHILE.

UM, DO YOU WANNA PUT HIM IN HIS CRIB?

OR SHOULD I DO IT?

UM, DO YOU WANT ME TO...

YOU KNOW WHAT?

I'M GONNA GET HIM FOR YOU.


[SCREECHING]

[DRIPPING]

[SQUEAKING]

[SCREAMING]

[GASPING]

[SCREAMING]


[GROANING]

IT WAS TOO GOOD TO LAST.

HOW ABOUT 12 MORE HOURS?

DEAL? HMM?

THEY HAVE TO TAKE THE DAY OFF.

SUNDAY. UH-HUH.

IT'S THE LORD'S DAY.

[LAUGHS] HALLELUJAH.

COME ON.

LET'S GO SEE TANNER AND PAY HER AND SEE IF SHE CAN COME BACK.

[BABY CRYING]

[GASPS]

[BABY CRYING]

WHAT KIND OF PERSON WOULD YOU LET IN THIS HOUSE?

PENNY.

SOME TEENAGER YOU MET AT THE GROCERY STORE!

PENNY, CALM DOWN.

NO REFERENCES!

I MEAN, WE DON'T EVEN KNOW HER LAST NAME!

DO YOU EVEN KNOW HER FIRST NAME?

I MEAN, WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THIS HOUSE THAT SOMEONE WOULD LEAVE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT?!

YOU'RE--YOU'RE TAKING IT TOO FAR.

NO, I'M NOT!

PENNY, PLEASE!

STOP, OK? STOP WHAT?!

LOOK. I KNOW IT'S WRONG.

I-I TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY.

BUT SHE'S GONE, FOR WHATEVER REASON.

THE BABY WAS IN THE CRIB.

AND WE WERE A FEW FEET AWAY IN OUR ROOM, SLEEPING.

WE DIDN'T EVEN HAVE OUR MONITOR ON!

SOMETHING COULD HAVE HAPPENED!

PEOPLE DID NOT HAVE BABY MONITORS THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRETY OF HUMAN HISTORY UNTIL A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO!

AND BABIES DIED EVERY NIGHT THEIR CRIBS!

PENNY, PLEASE.

[CONSTRUCTION NOISES CONTINUE]

[BABY CRYING]

HEY.

HEY, HEY, HEY, HEY, HEY!

YOU GUYS GET IN YOUR TRUCKS!

AND YOU GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE!

LOOK, LOOK, FRIEND, WHAT YOU--

WHAT THE HELL IS THE MATTER WITH YOU?!

YOU'RE NOT MAKING ANY SENSE.

DON'T YOU ASSHOLES HAVE ANY CHILDREN?!

WHAT YOU'RE DOING IS ILLEGAL!

DON'T BE STUPID.

I'M GONNA SHUT THIS OPERATION DOWN!

THERE'S NOTHING ILLEGAL ABOUT WHAT WE'RE DOIN'!

YOU CANNOT DO CONSTRUCTION ON SUNDAY!

OK, IT'S OK, MAN.

WE'VE ALL BEEN IN YOUR SHOES. YOU KNOW?

IT'S HAPPENED TO ME, TRUST ME, MORE THAN ONCE.

YOU TIED ONE ON SATURDAY NIGHT, INDUCED YOURSELF INTO A JUNIOR COMA, AND YOU LOST AN ENTIRE DAY.

WELCOME TO MONDAY.

IF YOU GOT A SICK DAY, I THINK I'D CALL IN.

IT LOOKS LIKE YOU COULD USE A LITTLE MORE SHUT EYE.

WHY DON'T YOU GO CRAWL BACK IN BED.

I'LL MAKE SURE WE KEEP IT DOWN.

[NO AUDIO]


Alex: YOU HAVE TO GET OUT RIGHT NOW.

DO YOU HEAR ME?

Penny: THERE'S A GHOST IN THE HOUSE.

I'VE SEEN IT.GET IN THE FUCKIN' CAR AND START DRIVING.

WHY WON'T YOU BELIEVE ME?

I HAVEN'T DONE ANYTHING WRONG.

GOD DAMN IT, WHY WON'T YOU BELIEVE ME?

YOU THINK THIS ISN'T HARD FOR ME?

WAKE UP! WHY ARE YOU LYING TO ME?

[BABY CRYING]


[THUNDER]

[BABY MURMURING]

I'M SORRY.

I DIDN'T PICTURE OUR LIFE QUITE LIKE THIS.

YOU MUST HATE IT.

THE RAIN IS NICE.

THEY'LL PROBABLY HAVE TO STOP.

ISN'T THE RAIN NICE?

I CAN'T REMEMBER YOUR NAME.

I'M SORRY.

I'M NOT CRAZY.

[BABY CRYING]

[BANGING ON DOOR]

PLEASE!

PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE!

PLEASE! PLEASE!

[WHISPERING] THE BABY'S ASLEEP.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'VE REALIZED, BUT IT'S ACTUALLY QUIET RIGHT NOW.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME SINCE WE MOVED IN THIS PLACE THAT I CAN ACTUALLY GET SOME WORK DONE.

SO IF YOU HAVE ANY LOVE LEFT IN YOUR HEART FOR ME, COULD YOU PLEASE, PLEASE STOP POUNDING ON THE WINDOW?

[THUNDER]

I'M WORRY OUR WHOLE NIGHTMARISH ORDEAL IS...UNDERMINING YOUR ABILITY TO PLAY PIANO.

YOU HAVE GOT TO LET ME GET SOME WORK DONE.

ALL YOU CAN THINK ABOUT IS WORK WHEN WE'RE IN THE FIFTH LEVEL OF HELL?

I KNOW HOW DIFFICULT THIS IS FOR YOU.

DIFFICULT? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU, ALEX?

THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG WITH THIS HOUSE!

THERE'S SOMETHING HORRIBLE HERE.

PENNY, WHATEVER YOU THINK IS GOING ON, OK, WHATEVER YOU THINK YOU SEE...

IT'S NOT REAL.

I'VE GOT SOMETHING.

[PILLS SHAKING]

I WANT YOU TO TAKE THESE.

LOOK-- NO.

I-I KNOW YOU'RE SCARED. I'M SCARED, TOO.

WE ARE FALLING APART.

WE CANNOT FUNCTION LIKE THIS.

I CAN HELP YOU.

PLEASE DON'T DO THIS.

I COULD TAKE CARE OF TANNER.NO--

NO, I'LL TAKE CARE OF HIM AND THEN YOU SLEEP.

I HAVE TO BE HERE TO PROTECT HIM. DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND?

THEN SOMETHING'S GONNA HAPPEN.

IT'S THE ONLY WAY WE'RE GONNA GET THROUGH THIS.

GOD, I WANT TO GO HOME.

I WANT TO GO HOME.

YOU JUST NEED TO GET SOME SLEEP.

HERE.

TAKE THESE.

NO.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

STAY AWAY FROM ME.

STAY AWAY FROM YOU?

ALL I'VE EVER DONE IS TAKEN CARE OF YOU AND THE BABY.

THE BABY?

YOU WANTED THIS BABY JUST AS MUCH AS YOU WANTED TO MOVE INTO THIS HOUSE.

THAT'S NOT TRUE.

YOU THINK I'M AN IDIOT?

YOU THINK I'M STUPID, HUH?

YOU CAN'T DO THIS TO ME! YOU CAN'T TREAT ME LIKE THIS!

I SAID STAY AWAY FROM ME.

I WOULD NEVER HURT YOU.

I WOULD NEVER HURT YOU!

ALL I'VE EVER DONE IS GIVEN YOU EVERYTHING YOU WANTED!

[BABY CRYING]

Woman: IT'S BEEN MORE THAN 6 WEEKS SINCE A LOCAL WOMAN WANDERED AWAY FROM HER HOSPITAL ROOM IN STANTON ONLY TO DISAPPEAR.

THE WOMAN WAS BEING TREATED FOR SHOCK FOLLOWING THE DEATH OF HER 8-MONTH-OLD DAUGHTER WHO PERISHED WHEN A FIRE BROKE OUT AT THEIR HOME IN BUTLER COUNTY.

RESCUE EFFORTS TAPERED OFF AFTER MULTIPLE SEARCHES OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD TURNED UP NOTHING.

BUT THE CASE IS GETTING A SECOND LOOK AFTER THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ANOTHER WOMAN IN THE SAME TOWN.

19-YEAR-OLD NANCY LEGGERO WAS REPORTED MISSING THIS WEEK AFTER FAILING TO SHOW UP AT THE SUPERMARKET WHERE SHE WORKED.

POLICE IN BUTLER COUNTY ARE NOW WONDERING IF THERE MAY BE A CONNECTION IN THE DISAPPEARANCE OF THE TWO WOMEN.
