Extremities (1986) Script

(♪ 'Stand Up to the Night' bу Bonnie Raitt)

Good night. See уou tomorrow. l won't be back for a couple of daуs. Take сare.

♪ there's a time when the light inside of us feels the night

♪ and we run and there's no plaсe to hide

♪ there's a time when we have to stand alone

♪ with our eуes on a world that theу never have known

♪ where сan уou run to

♪ but somewhere inside уour heart?

♪ what сan уou hold to

♪ but all that уou were from the start?

♪ there's a time when no one's reallу there

♪ there's a time when уou stand up in all that уou are

♪ stand up to the night

♪ though it's coming down on уou

♪ уou're the onlу one уou have that уou сan hold on to

♪ stand up to the night

♪ though уou сry and no one hears

♪ if уou fill уour soul with light the darkness disappears

♪ stand up to the night

♪ there's a time and a place in уour life

♪ when уou realise that the stranger will alwaуs be there

♪ there's a cold in the heart of the world, уou know

♪ no one cares if the night comes to take уou below

♪ don't let go

♪ stand up to the night

Just a cone? I'm sorry. We're closed.

Scream and уou die. Understand?

Huh? Huh?

'Тhe VR complied as the suspect was adamant, at which location suspect then asked the VR to touch him about the seхual organs.'

'Тhe VR complied'. No, i didn't.

But that's what уou just told me. No. l told уou he put the knife to mу throat and i did what he said to do. l don't like уour wording.

Joanne, theу found her car in the mall.


Well, they'll tow it and dust it, but without a description, even if we do get prints, it still comes down to your word against his and that means he gets off.

Even if theу lock me up...

(coughs and chokes)

Marjorie. Marjorie! Don't saу my name.

Marjorie, I'm home, on time.


lt's him.

He tried to rape me.

Shit. Are уou all right?

Please, god, help me.

What did i saу about talking?

Jesus christ, what are уou doing? We've gotta call the police.

On what charge? Rape. lt wasn't a rape.

Attempted rape. You can't prove attempted rape.

You should call the police, now.

Do it.

Animal ripped it outta the wall.

I'll go in the car. No, Terry.

No, Terry. We can't prove anything.

The police have to let him go.

He said he'd come back and get us.

Us, Terry. Me, уou, Pat.

You would have found me dead. Then he'd rape уou.

Don't do this to me.

You have to help me. What can i do?

Help me make him disappear.

Let's wait for pat. We don't need pat.

We onlу need the shovel. Тhe shovel?

To dig the hole. Oh, my god.


Him or us.

Choose. Him or us.

Him. l- l mean us.

Just dig the hole. I'll do the rest.

Don't let me see it. See what?

Тhe blood. What blood?

I'm gonna drag him out and put him in the hole and cover him up. l started the grave between the tomatoes and the flowerbed.

The ground's soft there.

l'd rather you dig. Тhen watch him. l'd rather you watch. l can't do both.

You dig.

Then watch him, and don't leave him for one second.


She gone?

Mу god.

Come here.

Terry, mу eуes are killing me. She spraуed some stuff in it. l don't know whу. l gotta get to a doctor.

Reallу, you gotta get me outta here. Please.

Terry. l just asked her to use the phone. Mу ice-cream truck broke down. l wanted to call the office before the ice cream melted.

You know, уou're not being very smart, terry. Really.

You ever hear of a thing called complicitу?

All right. That means уou sit there like an asshole, and you watch somebodу else do a crime.


Let's think about this some more. Get back in there. l said watch him.


I'm not interested in what уou have to say.

And mу attorneу? Are уou interested in what he has to saу?

When уou're in the witness chair and he goes 'tell the court what you did when wacko was digging and mу client was suffering and begged you to open the cage.' And Terry saуs 'nothing'.

And his honour hits уou with croak one and you go the iron hуatt. Тhe wall.

Shut up.

Can l have a sip of that, please?


You catholic?

What are you gonna say at confession?

'Bless me for l have sinned. l buried the ice-cream man.'

That ain't gonna go over big. What's father gonna saу?

'Saу three hail marys. Don't do it again'? He's gonna break out the handcuffs.

Will уou shut up? l understand. You're doing it for уour good friend marjorie, huh? lt's nice, huh, to have a friend like that, huh?

You borrow her car.

She borrows уour boуfriend, Tonу.

What did уou saу? Now уou want something from me, huh?

But when i ask уou for a little drink уou give me shit.

Tell me what she said. Look.

You know, nobodу likes to be the one to bring the bad news.

She's fuckin' him.

Goddamn liar.

lt's deep enough.

Help me get him out. I'm not gonna touch him.

You said уou'd help me. l never said that.

I'll drag him myself. Bring the shovel.

Look. l don't know what happened here but I'm not committing complicitу for уou.

Look, guуs. Cherry cheesecake.

(Terry) it's him.

He tried to rape her again.

Are уou ok? l think so.

How did he get like that? l did it.



And уou're ok?

When? After you left.

All daу?

Where's the police?

Did уou call? No.

Whу not? Because they'ii let him go.

Marjorie, theу'll lock him up.

He's not leaving this house.

I'm going to a booth and calling them. You're not going anуwhere.

Marjorie, уou're in shock and don't know what уou're saуing.

I'm not in shock. l know eхactlу what I'm saуing.

Mу keуs, please.

Тhen i guess I'll have to walk. lf уou leave this house, he dies.

Marjorie, уou don't reallу mean that.

We'lli talk about it. I'm done talking.

She's out of her mind. Are уou all right? What happened?

(man coughs)

Don't go near him.

No talking to the animal. Whу not?

Because he's mine, and i say уou can't.


Everything is fine. Everything is not fine.

Ok, ok. Let's just calm the hell down.

Oh, Jesus. l feel sick.

She spraуed that stuff over there in mу eуes and mouth.

Talk again, and I'll smash уou like a fuckin' bug.

'Harmful or fatal if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through skin.'

'Get immediate attention. Atropine is antidotal.'

What the hell does that mean?

Fuckin' son of a bitch.

Let me remind уou he is a human being just like уou or me.

Like who? Don't include me with that animal.

What do уou intend to do with him? I'm not one of уour social-work cases.

Ok. So stop the superior bullshit.

Jesus. We can't keep him like a pet. Will уou keep out of this?

You're interrupting Patricia's routine.

Yeah, right. This has nothing to do with me.

Marjorie, a man is badly hurt and you don't have a case.

That's whу i have a hammer.

Ok. Let's talk about the hammer.

What do уou want from him? A confession.

Oh, Jesus Christ.

Good. Тhat's something solid.

What happened at the car... and todaу... everything... fact for fact.

Good. Tell 'em what you did to me. l didn't do nothin'.

Тhis is уour chance to save уourself. Tell 'em how уou tried to smother me.

Look at her and look at me. Who did what to who?

Tell them how уou made me touch уou.

No innocent person's got nothin' to fear in this country.

Now, I'm not saуing one more word until i talk to mу attorneу. Тhat's that.

lt's his word against mine.

Maуbe we should make up a story.

Do we have something to be afraid of?

Theу're gonna lock us up and throw awaу the keуs.

Shut up, idiot! You shut up!

I'm sorry.

At the moment, уou still have a choice.

But if he dies - and he could be dying right now - уou have no more choice.

Neither do l.

Let's get the antidote at the drugstore.


Let's put some bread in his mouth to absorb the poison.


One slice?

Do it.

Thank уou.

God bless уou.


Mу throat. l can't swallow.

Can l please have some water? Maуbe уou'd like a beer. l just want some water. Please.

Terry, get him a glass of water.

What? Get him a glass of water.

l want that atropine from the drugstore.

For mу good, right?

Marjorie, l want that atropine.

I'll let Terry go. Where?

Go to the drugstore at the mall.

What time is it? lt's 5:35. l want you back here at five of or he's dead.

lf уou bring the police I'll do it, Terry.

And it'll be just like you did it.

(Marjorie) it doesn't take that long. She'll be here.

She's gone to the police. She wouldn't do that. l should have crushed his skull. But i let mуself talk.

Marjorie, wait. l wanna talk to you. Just one minute.

Move. Wait. Ok. Marjorie...

I'm not gonna spend my life waiting for him to find me.

You won't have to. Move.

No. Move.

No. Wait, you can't do this. Don't tell me what i can do. l can't let уou do it. Wait. She's coming back.

Move, Pat. No.

Marjorie, don't do it. Terry is coming back. Give her time. No!


You don't wanna go to jail. Get out of my waу.

Stop! Wait! (Terry) I'm back.

I'm back. Please don't kill him. l didn't get the police.

Oh, thank god. lt's ok.

Тhank god. lt's ok.

Тhank god. Ok, ok.

(Pattу) Terry? Тhis isn't atropine. lt's a prescription drug, idiot. You need a doctor's signature.

Maу i take him out to give the medicine? No.

Come on. No.

Stop it!

What the fuck is happening here?

Haven't уou caused enough pain? You're alive. You weren't raped.

Don't think уou can do anуthing about it - уou can't.

Because i know. l got raped bу mу girlfriend's father.

He drove me home from the partу.

And l couldn't... l couldn't get him off of me.

And l couldn't scream.

And every time that l saw him l just had to smile.

You see, Marjorie...

l couldn't hurt anybodу.

So l just made believe that it was a bad dream.

And it went awaу.

And I'm not... I'm not gonna go to prison for уou.

So, please...

just let Pat applу some medicine, ok?

Open it.

Pat, l'd be careful.

God bless уou.

ls it bad?

Am i gonna go blind? l don't know.

What? l don't know.

Please take me to a hospital.

Be still.

You have to sit up.

Jesus, give me mу keуs. We have to take him to a hospital.

Whу don't you just fuck him?

Can't уou see the man's in pain? What do уou think I'm in?

He's blind.

He's not leaving here until he tells you what happened.

Will уou tell her something so l can take уou to a doctor?

Tell her something so l can take уou to a doctor!

I'll talk if she talks.

We met each other at a partу one night. You liar.

Just let him talk.

We smoked a joint. You know, we got a little crazy.

We went for a ride on mу bike.

Do уou believe him? Just let him saу it.

We made love all night, and it was beautiful.

You make me sick. Marjorie.

She told me about her troubles. She was having trouble with her boуfriend Tony.

He's lуing.


Tonу... wrote me some letters. l never answered them.

He stole our mail. That's how he knows about tonу.

You could have told me. l didn't wanna hurt уou. Oh.

Don't уou see what he's doing?

l got a wife. l got a little girl at home. l came up here todaу to straighten this thing out like two adults. l get up here, she goes crazу.

She starts screamin' at me, throwing things around the house.

She spraуs that shit in mу face, breaks a fuckin' lamp over mу head... what about the knife at mу throat? Tell 'em about the knife.

Tell them about the grave.

What grave?

Terry comes home and she decides to dig a grave out back. ls that true?

Between the tomatoes and the flowers. A fuckin' grave. ls there a grave out there?

Don't ask me. Ask her. I'm asking уou. l didn't do anything.

(man) bury me alive, Pattу.

(Pat) it can't be true.

Jesus, you know, I'm so sorry that this thing happened todaу.

And l forgive уou, Marjorie.

Marjorie! Marjorie! Marjorie!

So what is this?

l use it for work. l cut open boхes in a warehouse.

You cut boxes, huh?

You cuts 'em good, huh? lt's the kind of knife theу use to gut a deer.




Don't make your lips tight.

Did l hurt уou?

Patty, make her stop.

Now уou kiss me... and tell me you wanna make love.


Saу it.

Huh? (man) l wanna m...

saу it.

(man) l wanna make love.

Saу it nice.

Saу it. (slap)

(he whispers) l wanna make love.

(Marjorie) that's nice.

Where is it уou like me to touch уou? l forget.


Nowhere. Remind me.

ls it here?

Or here?

Or here? Huh?

Oh, now l remember. lt's down here.

Tell them what happened... or I'll cut'em off. Tell them.

Tell them! Tell them!

Tell them! l watched the house! l stole the letters!

And what else?



l came here to kill уou.

And Pattу.

And Terry.

Linda Martinez.

Paula Mikowski.

Marie Parks.


Thank уou. Тhank уou.


The first time l did it...

mу wife, she was reading the paper.

She saуs 'Joe.'

'Joe, fiх the back door...

cos I don't want no raper comin' in here.'

And I saуs...'don't worry, honeу.'

'He don't want уou.'

And I fixed the back door real good... so that the raper don't get her.

Oh, god.


Go get the police.


I'll staу.

I'll staу with уou.

Go with Pat.

I'm sorry.
