I'M SORRY.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TO VEGAS, JJAKS?

OH, IT'S THE BEST.

I WENT THERE WHEN I WAS LITTLE--

WITH MY MOM.

WE MET ANN-MARGRET.

MAN, SHE WAS THE COOLEST.

I MEAN, SHE WAS LIKE--

LIKE A KITTEN WITH BALLS. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

SHE GAVE ME THIS.

SHE SIGNED HER PICTURE, AND SHE GAVE ME THIS.

IT'S SUPPOSED TO BRING ME LUCK.

LET'S JUST GO.

LET'S JUST START THIS THING UP AND GET OUT OF HERE.

I CAN'T.

WHY? WHY CAN'T YOU SEE?

MAYBE ALL THIS SHIT HAPPENED WITH ME, WITH YOU, WITH YOUR MOM DYING--

MAYBE IT HAPPENED SO WE'D END UP TOGETHER.

I CAN'T.

IF YOU LEAVE ME HERE WITH THESE BASTARDS, I SWEAR YOU'RE A BIGGER FUCKER THAN THEY ARE.

SO IS THIS DOING THINGS DIFFERENTLY, RUNNING OFF WITH SOMEONE ELSE'S WIFE?

YOU CAN'T LOOK AT IT LIKE THAT.

I MEAN, LOOK AT IT LIKE THIS:

TIME IS LIKE...

AN ORANGE.

IT'S ROUND.

IT MEANS THAT EVERYTHING REPEATS ITSELF.

AND EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS, HAPPENS FOR A REASON.

MM-HMM.

LIEUTENANT BEN...

SOMETHING.

S-SOME--UH...

COSTIKYAN! YES!

YES, JUST LEAVE A MESSAGE.

NO, I DON'T NEED TO SPEAK TO ANYBODY!

J-JUST LEAVE A MESSAGE, OKAY?

ALRIGHT. THANKS.

THE BIG PROMISE I MADE MYSELF WAS THAT I'D NEVER SPEND ANOTHER DAY IN PRISON.

NOT ONE.

YOU WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH?

YOU WANT TO AVOID PRISON?

QUIT STICKING UP GAS STATIONS.

WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT IS DIFFERENT.

I'M JUST SAYING, GO HOME ONE LAST TIME AND GET THE MONEY.

WHY? WE HAVE A LITTLE CASH.

I GOT 50 BUCKS I KEEP STUFFED IN MY UNDERWEAR, AND YOU'VE GOT, WHAT, ENOUGH TO SPRING FOR THIS SWELL PLACE?

WE LEFT IN A HURRY, JJAKS.

WE FORGOT.

I KNOW, BUT-- JJAKS, COME ON.

WE'RE ALMOST THERE.

ALMOST.

IT'S LIKE, IF I CLOSE MY EYES, I CAN SEE US IN VEGAS...

LYING BY A POOL...

WITH WATER IN IT.

IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY AND WARM.

AND GUYS IN WHITE JACKETS BRING US DAIQUIRIS AND ALL THE FOOD WE CAN EAT FOR, LIKE, 4 BUCKS.

AND ALL THE TOWELS SMELL LIKE DOWNY FABRIC SOFTENER.

THERE'S NO CLOCKS, NO BEDTIME, AND WHEN I GET GOING THERE, YOU CAN COME SEE ME PERFORM AT NIGHT.

I'D BE WEARING BIG RED FEATHERS. ONE OF THOSE THINGS ON MY HEAD, LIKE CROWN THINGS, WITH DIAMONDS IN IT.

WHEN I COME OFFSTAGE I'D BE TOO WIRED TO SLEEP, SO WE'LL MAKE LOVE UNTIL MORNING, SLEEP UNTIL 2:00.

IT'S HALF MY MONEY, JJAKS, RIGHT?

I'M HIS WIFE, RIGHT?

IT'S THE LAW.

HE KEPT SAYING THAT HE WAS GONNA MAKE ME HAPPY, THAT HE HAD ALL THIS MONEY STASHED AWAY.

SO AFTER EVERYTHING, LET HIM MAKE ME HAPPY, JJAKS.

I JUST DON'T KNOW WHERE HE HIDES IT.

WHAT?

WHAT?

WHAT?

YOU KNOW WHERE, DON'T YOU?

DO YOU?

HUH?

LOOK AT ME.


YOU TOLD ME TO CALL, BEN.

[SNIFFS]

NOTHING.

HE'S BACK...

ALONE.

I SPEND MY WHOLE LIFE TRYING NOT TO COME BACK HERE.

I ALWAYS END UP COMING BACK HERE.

WHERE'S FREDDIE?

WHY DON'T I JUST PUT THE MONEY BACK AND REALLY NEVER COME BACK?

OH, SURE. SO YOU AND MY WIFE CAN LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER?

THAT SOUNDS LIKE A REALLY GOOD DEAL FOR ME.

WE'RE GONNA GO AT IT, AREN'T WE, SAM?

BIG TIME.

WHY DON'T YOU COME ON OUTSIDE? COME ON.

COME ON OUT HERE FOR A SECOND.

JUST NEED TO TALK TO YOU.

OKAY.

YOU EVER BEEN IN ANY TROUBLE?

NOT REALLY. MAYBE A LITTLE.

YOU GOT A RECORD? FIGURED AS MUCH.

YOU STAYING OUT OF TROUBLE?

YES, SIR. I'VE GOT MY LIFE AND MY WIFE.

THAT'S ALL A MAN NEEDS TO TURN THINGS AROUND.

YEAH, WELL...


I'M SORRY, FREDDIE.

Freddie, whispering: Jjaks...

♪ I DON'T WANT TO LEAVE YOU ♪

♪ ...TO GET ME HOME ♪

♪ I WON'T GO IT ♪

♪ ALONE ♪


AND?

WHAT--

HEY, I GOT AN EMERGENCY CALL, COME ON!

LIFE IS ONE BIG EMERGENCY, MAN, SO FUCK OFF.

[CHUCKLES]

OH, SOME ASSHOLE.

[SIREN]

I'M GIVEN TO UNDERSTAND THAT YOU KILLED FREDDIE CLAYTON.

IS THAT TRUE?

IS THAT A YES OR A NO?

IT DOESN'T MATTER BECAUSE YOUR BROTHER HERE, SAM, HE SAYS HE KNOWS WHERE YOU STASHED THE BODY.

AND IF THAT'S TRUE, THAT'S A VERY SAD THING, BECAUSE THAT WAS A BEAUTIFUL GIRL WITH HER WHOLE LIFE AHEAD OF HER!

SON OF A BITCH.

AAH!

Ben: I LIKED THAT GIRL.

KIND OF A STUPID FREAKING NAME IS THAT, ANYWAY?

J-J-JAKS?

[LAUGHING]

WHAT?

IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE JACK, BUT THEY FUCKED UP HIS BIRTH CERTIFICATE.

NO, YEAH!

Ben: A STUPID FUCKING TYPO.

THAT'S ALL YOUR LIFE AMOUNTS TO, HUH?

IT'S HERE SOMEWHERE.

WHERE?

HE MUST'VE DID SOMETHING WITH IT.

Lloyd: YOU SURE YOU GOT THE RIGHT SPOT?

YEAH!

WELL, THERE'S NOTHING HERE.

DON'T POINT OUT THE OBVIOUS, LLOYD.

IT'S FREAKIN' ANNOYING.

NO, HE MOVED HER. YOU DID SOMETHING.

WHERE IS SHE?

WHERE IS SHE?

COME ON! HEY!

HEY, HEY! JESUS!

YOU THINK I'VE GOT THE TIME TO FOOL AROUND?

COME ON!

YOU REMEMBER I'M A COP!

PEOPLE DEPEND ON ME.

I'M HERE TO SERVE AND PROTECT.

I DON'T HAVE THE TIME TO FUCK AROUND WITH A COUPLE OF FUCKING LOSERS LIKE YOU!

BUT I SAW IT!

HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU GOT THE R-RIGHT SPOT?

M-MAYBE IT'S UP THE ROAD OR SOMETHING.

N-N-N-N. THIS IS IT. THIS IS THE SPOT.

I'M TELLING YOU WHAT I SAW!

OH, NO, I DON'T THINK SO. YOU FIND YOUR OWN WAY BACK.

YOU CAN'T JUST LEAVE ME OUT HERE.

OH, I CAN'T, HUH?

[ENGINE STARTS]


Sam: GIMME A LIGHT, ASSHOLE.

OOF! UNH!

[GASPING]

SO WHAT WENT WRONG?

[COUGHING]

SHE MAKE YOU MAD?

COME ON, YOU CAN TELL ME.

WHAT DID YOU DO WITH HER BODY? YOU KNOW I KNOW.

PEOPLE KNOW SHE DIDN'T WANT TO BE WITH YOU.

AND PEOPLE KNOW YOU LET THOSE MOTHERFUCKERS WRITE THAT ON HER ARM, YOU BASTARD!

I DIDN'T TELL 'EM TO DO IT!

YEAH, WELL, WHO DID?

SHE WAS MY WIFE!

FOR 4 FREAKIN' DAYS!

SO?

WASN'T CONVENTIONAL.

SO WE DIDN'T MEET AT THE PROM. SO WHAT?!

SO WHY COULDN'T SHE LOVE ME ANYWAY?

YOU KNOW I DIDN'T HAVE ANY REASON TO KILL HER, BUT YOU DID!

I CAN'T REMEMBER ANYTHING, BUT YOU WERE THERE, RIGHT?

MAYBE.

Sam: WHERE'S THE BODY?

KISS MY ASS.

HEY...YOU SET ME UP.

ONLY IF YOU'RE SETTING ME UP.

SO, WAS IT LOVE OR JUST...

WITH FREDDIE?

FUCK OFF.

A GOOD BLOWJOB FEELS LIKE LOVE EVERY TIME, RIGHT?

[CLANG] HEY!

[CLANG]

OW! SHOOT!

[CLANG]

OOF!

[CLANG]

I'M NOT LETTING YOU OUT OF MY SIGHT. NOT FOR A MINUTE.

THAT'S FINE WITH ME.

WHERE YOU GOING?

[TELEPHONE RINGS]

DON'T ANSWER IT.

YEAH?

[TURNS TV OFF]

WHO IS IT?

TELL MY BROTHER WHAT YOU JUST TOLD ME.

WHO IS IT?

JUST TAKE THE PHONE.

HELLO?

THAT'S RIGHT, MR. CLAYTON.

WHAT MY WIFE SAW THE OTHER NIGHT MADE ME SICK.

ONE OF YOU CARRYING THAT WOMAN--

HER BODY-- INTO THE ROOM, AND THEN THE OTHER ONE CARRYING HER OUT.

I THINK YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.

$50,000 OUGHT TO DO IT.

[STOMPING]

I DON'T WANT TO BE HARD, 'CAUSE YOU GOT PROBLEMS, BUT I'D REALLY LIKE THE MONEY BY MORNING, OR I'LL HAVE TO GO TO THE POLICE.

SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.

DID YOU HEAR WHAT HE SAID?

HE SAID...

ONE OF US CARRIED HER BODY INTO THE ROOM...

AND ONE OF US CARRIED HER OUT.

I ONLY CARRIED HER OUT.

I MEAN, I COULDN'T REMEMBER.

YOU BASTARD!

YOU LET ME THINK IT WAS ME!

LOOK, IT DOESN'T MATTER WHO KILLED HER, RIGHT?

I MEAN, HE SAW ME AND HE SAW YOU--

Jjaks: IT MATTERS!

I LOVED HER!

WELL, DON'T WORRY NOW.

YOU DID THE RIGHT THING CALLING ME.

I'LL TAKE CARE OF EVERYTHING, OKAY?

BUT, UH, YOU GOTTA TAKE CARE OF ME, TOO.

[DIAL TONE]

LISTEN TO ME, ASSHOLE, THIS IS WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN.

YOU BURIED ME IN THIS SHIT, YOU'RE GONNA DIG ME OUT.

YOU'LL GIVE ME THE MONEY.

WHAT MONEY?

I'LL PAY THAT MOTEL GUY OFF.

PLEASE, THERE IS NO MONEY.

YOU LYING SACK OF SHIT!

I DON'T HAVE IT ANYMORE!

IT'S GONE!

I BOUGHT A HOUSE!

HALF A HOUSE.

NEAR VEGAS FOR FREDDIE AND ME.

WE'RE SUPPOSED TO HAVE A HOUSE.

A HOUSE?

YOU BOUGHT A HOUSE?

GET UP!

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO WITH A FUCKING HOUSE?

HEY!

YOU'RE GONNA GET THAT MONEY!

WAIT! WAIT!

I GOT IT. I GOT IT.

[OBJECT BREAKS]

THIS IS WHAT WE DO.

[PANTING]

WE GO TO WHERE YOU HID HER BODY AND WE DISPOSE OF IT ONCE AND FOR ALL WHERE NOBODY CAN FIND IT IN A THOUSAND YEARS.

THEN WE DON'T HAVE TO PAY NOBODY NOTHIN'.

YOU SEE?

[SCOFFS]

YOU IDIOT!

WHAT?

I NEVER MOVED HER BODY.

HUH?

HOW COULD YOU LIE TO ME ABOUT THAT?

YOU ATE MY EAR, YOU KILLED YOUR WIFE, YOU FRAMED ME, AND YOU'RE MAD AT ME FOR LYING?

JESUS! WHAT KIND OF SICKO WOULD TAKE A DEAD BODY?

MY HEAD...

YOU REALLY HURT MY HEAD.

SHUT UP.

YOU BETTER PRAY I CALM THIS MOTEL GUY DOWN WHILE--

I GO TO RED'S AND ASK HIM FOR THE MONEY.

ASK HIM? BEG HIM.

BEAR HIS FREAKIN' CHILDREN IF YOU HAVE TO.

YOU BETTER TAKE THIS.

I DON'T NEED IT. I DON'T WANT ANY MORE PROBLEMS.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT SERIOUS STUFF HERE, YOU KNOW.

YOU MIGHT NEED IT JUST TO REASON WITH THE GUY.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO SHOOT HIM UNLESS YOU ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO.

[GUN CLATTERS]

HEY, GOOD LUCK.

FUCK OFF.

[MEOWING]

[SIGHS]

ALWAYS BURNING THE MIDNIGHT OIL, AS THEY SAY.

JESUS CHRIST! THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE.

I WAS JUST ABOUT TO COME TO SEE YOU.

HERE YOU ARE.

I SHOULD COME BACK LATER. YOU'RE BUSY.

NO, I'M FINISHED.

THIS ADDING AND SUBTRACTING STUFF YOU DO IS HARD.

IT'S VERY HARD.

I DON'T PAY YOU ENOUGH.

YEAH, WELL--

WHAT DID YOU WANT TO SEE ME ABOUT?

IT CAN WAIT.

NAW, IT CAN'T.

UM...

WELL...

Red: AHEM.

I'M IN KIND OF A FIX, YOU KNOW?

UH-HUH.

I WAS GONNA SEE ABOUT BORROWING...

SOME MONEY, MAYBE.

YOU WANT MORE MONEY?!

OW!

YOU THINK YOU CAN FUCK WITH MY BOOKS AND I WON'T FIND OUT? WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU?

I DIDN'T TAKE NOTHIN', I SWEAR!

OKAY, I'M SORRY! I'M SORRY!

AAH!

I WANT IT ALL BACK.

I'M GONNA BREAK YOUR FUCKING LEGS ANYWAY, BUT YOU ARE GOING TO GIVE ME BACK EVERY DIME AND EVERY SEED OF EVERY JOINT YOU EVER SMOKED OF MINE THAT DIDN'T BELONG TO YOU!

OKAY. OKAY, OKAY.

I DON'T HAVE IT ANYMORE. HE TOOK THE MONEY. MY BROTHER--

I DON'T GIVE A DAMN! YOU TOOK IT FIRST!

HE STOLE IT FROM YOU, YOU STEAL IT BACK.

IGOT NO BEEF WITH YOUR BROTHER. 38 GRAND YOU OWE ME.

I MEAN IT. IF I HAD IT, I'D GIVE IT TO YOU.

NO! THAT--THAT PRICK!

ARE YOU LISTENING TO ME?

I DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR FUCKING PROBLEMS!

I LOOK LIKE A FUCKING SHRINK?

YOU TELL IT TO THAT CUNT ANN LANDERS.

YOU DO WHAT YOU GOTTA DO.

I DON'T GIVE A DAMN.

MY MAMA'S DEAD.

RIGHT. WELL, I GUESS YOU SHIT OUTTA LUCK.

I'M REALLY TIRED OF THE MOTEL BUSINESS.

THERE'S NO FUTURE IN IT, YOU KNOW?

WE HAD OUR EYE ON THIS REALLY NICE RV.

IT'S OKAY, BABY.

DON'T WORRY.

I KNOW IT WAS SAM WHO KILLED ME.


AAH!

[LAUGHING]

JJAKS!

IT'S OKAY.

FREDDIE.

OH, FREDDIE.

SOMEONE FOUND ME AT THE SIDE OF THE ROAD.

JESUS.

SAVED MY LIFE.

BUT I SAW-- I MEAN, I SAW.

OH, MY GOD, YOU'RE BLEEDING.

SHE'S BLEEDING! HELP!

I'M OKAY. I'M OKAY.

SAM'S A LOUSY SHOT.

EVEN THAT CLOSE.

THE BULLET WENT IN THERE AND OUT THERE.

DOCTOR SAYS I WAS LUCKY.

I TOLD HIM THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS LUCK.

IT'S REAL, RIGHT?

IT MUST BE.

I MEAN, I'VE NEVER FELT LIKE...

WHATEVER THAT WORD IS.

HAPPY.

JJAKS...

JJAKS, I NEED YOU TO TELL ME EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED.

I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY. I BLACKED OUT.

I COULDN'T REMEMBER ANYTHING AND...

THERE YOU WERE.

I THOUGHT I'D KILLED YOU.

WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO KILL ME?

I WOULDN'T. WHAT DID I DO TO YOU?

NOTHING. THAT'S RIGHT.

JUST THINKING ABOUT YOU IN THAT RAVINE BLEEDING TO DEATH...

YOU BROKE MY HEART, JJAKS.

I--I WAS SCARED.

I WAS STUPID. I WAS FUCKED UP.

PLEASE FORGIVE ME.

BABY...

I'VE ALREADY FORGIVEN YOU.

[SNIFFLING]

CAN I ASK YOU SOMETHING?

YOU WANT ME TO THROW THAT OUT FOR YOU?

WHAT? NO.

ARE YOU OKAY?

AND IN THE PROCESS HAD GOTTEN ALMOST A HUNDRED GRAND--

THAT'S CLOSE TO, LIKE, $98,000--

WHICH NOBODY WAS GOING TO MISS, YOU HOPE, AND A STRANGER WAS BLACKMAILING YOU, WOULD YOU GIVE HIM A BIG CHUNK OF THAT MONEY YOU WORKED SO HARD TO GET?

HA! YOU ARE WEIRD.

[LAUGHS]

HE HAD NO CHOICE WHEN I PUT IT THE WAY I PUT IT.

I MADE HIM SEE IT MY WAY.

AND, SAM, BRING THE KEY.

WHAT KEY?

ON TOP OF EVERYTHING, HE SAYS I OWE HIM 30 BUCKS FOR THE MOTEL KEY I TOOK.

IT'S IN THE FISH DISH.

WHAT FISH DISH?
