Gloria (1980) Script

The Yankees now lead.

He swings.

Deep into left center field.

It's about a 420-foot double.


Excuse me. Excuse me!

Look, I don't want any trouble from you, believe me.

It's Jeri!

What happened?

I don't wanna talk in front of the kids.

What's the matter, Mom?

No thing's the matter. She just got the groceries, that's all.

Are the bags packed? Yeah.

You got the money from the bank?

I don't want to talk money in front of the family.

You got the tickets? Don't ask me any more questions.

Where are we going?

Listen, Phil is very upset that we're leaving.

That kid is so sensitive.

Well, I'm gonna cook dinner, okay?

No, you're not gonna cook dinner. There's no time for that now.

Then why did I go shopping? What the hell am I supposed to be doing?

Son-of-a-bitch packages. The bus... I have to wait in the damn line.

Then the bags ripped and everything comes out.

I hurt my leg.

God, you son of a bitch.

Did you see anybody downstairs?

A man.

What kind of man? A man with a shirt.

What kind of shirt? A shirt with shoes.

601. He's up there. His wife just went up the elevator.

Nice staircase they got here.

What took so long? I couldn't find the place. I got lost.

I went over the 138th Street Bridge, wound up on 155th Street Bridge.

Made a wrong turn, passed Yankee Stadium... the heat, traffic, the people...

Wound up to 158th Street. Finally I'm over here.

All right, you're here. Now let's go.

Hey, hold these things for a second.

Okay, let's go.

What kind of a place is this?

Hey.

Hold these. Be careful.

Don't blow yourself up. I know you're clumsy.

Where'd you go?

I went to stop downtown, 44th Street.

They're checkin' on his accounts. He's, uh...

He's skimmin' off the top.

How much?

Six hundred thousand, give or take 3,000. That's in seven accounts.

- How do they know? Because I talked about it.

I carry pictures of the kids in my wallet.

Never mind dinner. Pack your things.

We're packed, Mom. We've been packed for two days.

I said get your things.

We haven't finished yet. Can't you see?

Leave the junk. Just take the clothes.

¿Qué clothes?

No!

I think the kids should eat something. It's almost ready now.

Don't argue with me, Ma.

We don't know who's coming here.

Jack told them about the kids.

He's got pictures in his wallet. He talks about us.

Okay.

Let's get the bags. Come on.

Are you sure you're sure?

I know how sure I am. But not to kids!

Tommy didn't have any kids. He was a bachelor. Jesus Christ.

You did something.

What's the matter with you?

Listen to me. I didn't do anything. I made a remark, that's all.

When? I don't know. A couple of weeks ago.

That's why you couldn't sleep? Yeah, that's why.

You think they heard you?

What do you mean, do I... I said it out loud.

Well, what did you say?

Listen, they asked me a question. I said...

I said I had it written down. Then I said I was only kidding, okay?

- I tried to get them not to believe me. You told them you have the book?

Jesus!

Ma, get the kids ready! We're going!

Mom, please! Where are we going? I wanna know right now.

When I say we're leaving, we're leaving right now. Move!

Shh!

Take this.

What am I supposed to do with this? What the hell is it for?

I'm not getting my eye blown off! Shut up.

Do you need help? What's wrong, Dad?

You shut up! Shut up.

You're the one that got us into all of this!

It's Gloria.

Hi. Ran out of coffee.

Come in out of the hall. Hurry.

Hey, what are you doing with that gun?

What's going on here?

I think I came at a bad time.

Yeah, you came at a bad time! You came at a terrible time!

There are men downstairs.

We have every reason to believe that Jack's marked and I'm marked.

Joanie and Phil are marked, and Margarita's marked, and...

You gotta take the kids, Gloria.

Hey, Jeri, you know I'd do anything for you, but I don't like kids.

I hate kids.

Especially yours.

You mind not talking about my kids that way?

Shut up. She's my friend.

She don't know how serious it is, all right?

Look, Jack's an accountant for the mob.

He finked to the F.B.I., he's been skimming off the top, and now the kids are marked.

Okay.

I think it's a good idea, Jack.

No. I...

There's a gangster in the lobby. They're right here in the building.

I think we oughta call the police.

Ma, just shut up. All right?

Okay, pal.

Okay, you wanna come with me?

I'm not going!

Joan! Joan! - Joan!

Joanie!

Stay there.

Joanie, let go of that bedpost!

- I'm your mother! Let go of that bedpost! Joan!

- Joan! No, no, no! No!

Joan!

Come out of that bathroom! Give me the book.

Listen to me. Listen to me!

This book will save your life.

It's the Bible. It's everything I know about everything in the world.

Understand? It's your future.

Okay?

Go on.

Now listen to me.

Be a man.

Always be tough.

Don't trust anybody. Understand?

Yeah, Daddy.

I love you.

Come on. Joanie too.

Go now.

Come on.

Go on.

Go. Go on.

Come on, kid.

Go!

Come on.

Come on. Go with her. Now!

Go on!

Go! Go!

Go on!

Go on!

I don't know what to do.

Your father told you to come with me, so come on.

Go, go, go, go.

Come on.

I've got some goldfish in the bedroom. You wanna play with them?

You wanna play "20 Questions"?

How about watching the TV for a while?

Can you understand what I'm saying to you?

Yes.

Yeah.

Where's my boy, huh?

Yeah.

Come on, big fella. Come on.

There's my baby.

Yeah.

You like him?

You like cats?


Phil. Phil, he wants to talk to you.

Yes, papi. You want me to come home?

Is my sister still there?

I love you too.

You're the man.

Phil, you're the head of the family.

Remember that. Will you remember that?

Let me speak to her, Phil.

Let me speak to her.

Let me speak to her!

He wants to speak to you, but I want to speak to him.

Yes?

Yes, Jack. I understand now.

Hello, papi. This is Phil. What's going on? Where's Mom?

I want to speak to you.


My sister.

I... I... I want my father.

Papi.

I... I want my father!

Papi!

I hate you, you... you... you stupid person.

Y-You're a pig!


Check on that, huh?

Check the bedroom.


Think of it...

You know, it's like a... like a dream.

You know how when you go to sleep sometime... and you get killed in a nightmare or something and, uh...

You always wake up again, don't you? And you're somebody else, right?

How old are you? Six?

I don't know what to do with you, kid.

My poor cat.

What do I do with you?

You're not my family or anything. You're just a neighbor's kid, right?

Am I right?

You'd better get out of here. The police...

All right, come on. Let's go.

The register's gone.

Let's get outta here. Come on.

I'll get that book. Let's go.

Who knows who's on the gimme, right?

I don't know. Okay.

If I'm gonna get you outta here, I gotta have your help.

How can I help you?

They're gonna kill us, you little jackass.

I don't want to die.

I saved all my life so I could have some money, and I got it.

Okay, you're too young to know what making a living is, but I got my money, I got my apartment, I got my friends, my cat.

I don't want my face to look like hamburger.

Shoes.

Pictures.

Perfume.

I'm going home now.

No. You're not going home.

I have to!

What are you going to find in there, some dead bodies?

Okay.

This is your father's book.

Don't let anything happen to it.


Hey!

Hey!

Let me go! Papi!

Papi! Papi!

Papi!

Papi!

Papi! Papi!

Papi!

Oh, kid...

Okay, listen, this is a dream. I told you before. It's all a dream.

Nothing bad is really happening.

Now, we gotta get outta here. We gotta walk, okay? Take a step.

Come on, take one. That's it. That's good.

Come on, take another one. That's good. Great.

That's good. Come on. That's it.

Come on, take another one. Good. Great.

Hey, you're doin' swell. Come on.

Oh, God.

Okay. Okay.

Okay, go. Great.

Lady, get that kid out of here!

Hold it right there. Where do you think you're going?

That officer said to get this kid out of here.

All right, all right. Stand out here.

Stay right here. I'll let you know when you can go out.

Come on, guys. All right, go ahead, take the kid outside.

Go ahead. Go ahead, go ahead.

Hey! Get back! Hey! Get that camera out of here!

Get that...

Come on, come on. My kid!

Let me have my kid!

Let me go! Give me that kid!

Come on, let's go, huh?

- Let her go! Come on, break it up! Come on!


Okay.

Oh, what a slob.


My sister.

I want my father.

It's all right, sweetheart.

It's all right, kid. It's... It's just a dream.

That's all it is.

Go on back to sleep.


Well, they're checking us out.

Who's they?

I don't know. I don't know who "they" is.

Thanks, Gloria.

That's all you want?

I'm gonna go in the bathroom now.

Don't answer that telephone.

And don't go near the windows.

Or the door.

If you hear anything, just come on in the bathroom and get me.

Knock on the door.

Are you all right?

Yeah, I'm all right. Go to the toilet.


Who would want to kill a low-income family of four in the Bronx with shotguns?

Who would want to kidnap their six-year-old boy?

The family is named Dawn. They're dead.

The possible abductor's name is Gloria Swenson, patterned after Gloria Swanson.

It wasn't a robbery. It was a mob murder.


I'm not going with you.

Hey.

I got no time to play games with you, kid.

I am the man.

I am the man.

I am the man! Do you hear me?

I am the man! I am the man!

Not you! You're not the man!

I am the man!

I do anything I can!

I am the man! Hey!

Hey!

Hey.

Hey, come on, let me see. Come on.

Come on, kid.

Ahh.

You are not the man.

You don't listen.

You don't know anything.

You're driving me crazy.


Let me have the keys.


Gloria?

Gloria?

It's me, Gloria.

Gloria?

- Gloria... Did you see her? No.

She's not in there.

Harry, did you see her?

Where'd you see her at? I didn't see nothin'.

There they are. They're down there.

How the hell did that happen? I didn't pass anybody.

Gloria?

Gloria?

Come on!

Come here, sweetheart!

Come on, Gloria!

Come here, doll!

Nobody passed me on the street.

Gloria?

Gloria?

Gloria!

Get away from that door.


Hey! Taxi! Taxi!


Come on.

Hey! Taxi!

Taxi!

Goddamn it.

Let go of me, will ya.

Quit hanging on me.

Hey.

Hey, kid.

Listen.

The guys that killed your family...

You understand?

Do ya?

My feet are falling off. I can't run anymore.

What am I doing here?

I don't wanna get killed.

Hey, that's it.

Look, you, come on. You start running.

Come on, you run. Run.

Go on.

Run. Go on. Run on home. Go on.

Hey!

Did you hear me? I said...

Look, I'm not going with you.

I can't. I'm...

I'm overweight. I'm out of shape. I...

Look, go back to your house. We're not so far away. Go on!

You got relatives. You got friends. Let them take care of you.

You're my friend. Go on!

I'm not taking care of you anymore. I can't.

Hey, listen.

Christ, I can't... I can't even turn you over to the cops.

Don't you understand? I've been in jail. You understand jail?

The people that killed your parents are my friends.

I can't get involved with you.

Go on, now, run...


Gloria.

Yes?

You know, we're not interested in you. All we want is the book and the kid.

Do you understand?

Sure.

Gloria, why don't you take a walk.

We'll take care of that kid.

You got that book, kid?

Come here.

Hey, Frank.

What are you gonna do, shoot a six-year-old Puerto Rican kid on the street?

He don't know nothin'. He don't even speak English.

Drive!

Taxi!

Okay, Phil, come on. Get in.

What happened over there? That's some accident.

Yeah, we're not interested in accidents.

85th and Lexington.

You deaf?

Gloria, I'm sorry.

Listen to me.

It was all my fault. You did it for me.

Hey, leave it alone, will ya?

Just do me a favor and don't talk anymore.

Forget about it.

What the hell.

We'll go to my bank, take out my money and we'll buy some new clothes. Okay?

Here, keep it.

Thank you.

You know what desperate is? No.

Scared.

Here. Stay there. Wait.

I'd like to get all my money out of the bank.

Uh, checking or savings? It's in a safe deposit box.

You have to see one of the assistant managers.

Good-bye.

I'd like to get into my safe deposit box.

How are you? How am I?

I-I think I've helped you before, haven't I?

Oh, yeah.

Your key, please.

What's your name? Ron.

Ron.

I'd like to be alone with my money.


Stay there. I'll be right back.

You're out of your mind.

There's word around you been doin' a lot of shootin', hurt some good people.

You been interferin' in business.

In their opinion, you should know better. That's the word that's around.

His mother was a friend of mine. So what?

You gotta be out of your mind.

Who's that? My uncle. Come on.


Here ya are. Keep the change.

That's a five.

I'm gettin' out on this side, so don't give me any argument.


Yes, miss?

I'm with a kid.

I realize that, but we haven't any space.

Well, we don't want space. We want a room.

Do you have a reservation?

Well, I'm sorry. There isn't any room.

Let's get outta here now. Okay.

God... He don't know the score.

He sees a dame like you and a guy like me, he don't know.

Yeah.

We'd be better off in a dumpier part of town.


Okay, here are your socks. Put 'em on.

No.

I feel like your mother.

You aren't my mother.

What did you say?

You aren't my mother.

My mother's beautiful.

This is our stop. Let's get off.

Hello. Hello.

I'm a friend of Louie Saul's.

He's out of town.

Well, I need a room.

Two-fifty a night, but it's a flophouse.

Want it in advance, or do you trust me?

Two dollars and fifty cents. You got it?

Where's the key? It's open.

What room number?

Any room you want. They're all open.


You make a great target standing in that window.


Gloria, are you awake?

What's the matter now?

These neon lights are driving me crazy.

Go to sleep. We gotta get out of here in the morning.

Blinking lights. Do they remind you of anything?

No.

May I touch yours?

May you touch my what?

Your hair.

You like me? - How can I resist you?

A body like yours, it's a pleasure to lie in bed with you.

Do you love me?

No. I don't even know you.

Do you think?

What is that supposed to mean?

I didn't know when you get older you get tougher.

But you won't have to be scared.

'Cause every time there's noise you have to be scared.

Hey, I'm not scared.

Not even of nightmares?

No. Nothing.

No dreams at all? No.

What do you do, just close your eyes, and black?

Hey, what is this getting to be?

You trying to embarrass me or what?

No, I'm trying to tell you something.

I'm trying to... What?

Have you ever been in love?

Forget it.

I outweigh you 60 pounds.

Now leave me alone.


What's the matter now?

What's the matter with you?

I'm sorry I kept you awake last night.

Your father's book is very interesting.

I think we oughta burn it.

No!

You're so stupid sometimes.

Okay. It's your book.

I know it's my book.

So what are we going to do?

We're gonna try to get to Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh? For how long?

Is it far away? Yeah.

First we're gonna stop at a cemetery.

I think you oughta say a little prayer.

Do I have to?

Hey, I said so, didn't I?

You got change for a hundred? I could get it.

Well... take this and, uh, come back.

We'll be 15 minutes, then we want to go back into the city. Okay?

Yes, ma'am.

I'm glad I'm with you.

Okay, let's find a tombstone.

What town is this?

What difference does it make?

I don't understand.

I don't know what to do.

What, am I going to see them?

Oh, no, no. No, they're not buried here.

We're gonna pretend.

All dead people stick together anyway. Doesn't make any difference.

I... I don't think I should do this.

I mean...

I don't mind.

I don't mind a lot of things.

But this is a little gruesome.

Nope. You always gotta say good-bye.

Dead people are...

It's like...

What's it like?

Like a ship. Did you ever see a ship sail?

No.

Well... it's like those dreams we were talkin' about.

Here.

These are nice. Any of these.

Those are nice stones.

Now go on up there and, uh, you kneel down and, you know, just, uh, just say whatever comes into your heart.

Where are you going to be?

I'm going to be right here.

Hello. How are you? I missed you.

But then, you know how it feels.

I had a dream about you the other night, and... amen.


Nobody knows where I am.

What do you mean?

I have friends. You know.

I wanna go home.

Hey, don't be stupid. You got no home.

You got me.

I wanna play stickball.

I wanna go to school.

Phil?

I wanna go home, Gloria.

Hey, think of somethin' funny.

I can't.

You?

You can't think of something funny?

Hey, anybody says anything funny to you, you practically split your blood vessels laughing.

Here. Keep the change.

My book!

Okay, get it.

What's up, buddy? My father's book.

Come on.

I don't want to go to Pittsburgh.

I'm sorry, Gloria, but I'm tired. So what?

Excuse me. Which track for Pittsburgh?

Miss, why don't you go to Information.

Thanks.

Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen.

Amtrak train number 27, 00 p.m. for Washington, D.C. intermediate point, now ready for boarding on track number...

My friend and I would like a table. This way, please.

Will this do? If it's the best you got.

Yeah.

Relax.

I don't know what's going on.

Nothing's going right.

Thanks.

Can I have a piece of pie?

What kind of pie?

Apple with vanilla ice cream.

We don't have apple.

Then what do you have? Peach.

Okay. I'll have peach with vanilla ice cream.

What to drink?

I'll have a Coke. He'll have milk.

I don't want milk.

He'll have milk and I'll have a cup of coffee.

Black or regular?

Milk and sugar on the side.

Milk and sugar on the side. Yeah.

Take a walk.

What's funny? My nose?

No. You're so tough.

I'm tough?

I don't mean tough.

So strong.

- You know. Yeah, I know. I know.

If you wanted to split up, it's okay with me.

Hey, just don't be phony. I hate that.

We'll split up. What's that supposed to be, a threat?

You can't even carry my bag.

You can't even speak English. You can't even remember that book.

You can't even speak English.

Okay.

And you don't know enough to apologize when you're wrong.

You don't listen and you're rude.

- I'm rude? - That's right.

That's a laugh.

What happened to my pie?

And my vanilla ice cream?

You want it?

Take a walk.

"Take a walk."

Hey, give me the book. Hand it to me.

Gloria!

Give it to me. Shut up.

Here's the book. Here's what you've been looking for.

I'm Gloria. I've got my hand on a gun.

I wanna make a deal. You wanna make a deal.

I can't make that decision.

Why not?

'Cause I don't trust these guys, and I'm not Mr. Tanzini.

Okay! You want it?

Tanzini, eh?

You want it?

Okay.

Okay, guys.

This is your option. You've got two.

I got a six-year-old kid over there, doesn't know his ass is up.

Had his whole family murdered by you punks.

Empty 'em in that.

Do it!

In the bag!

In the purse.

Okay. Okay.

What's the matter?

What are they gonna do?

All right, pick the pieces up.

Let's wait outside.

They'll wait for us outside.

What we gonna do?

I don't know. Shut up!

There's a back way out.

Just sit there till I think of somethin'.

Hey! Phil!

Come on! I'll lead the way.

Come on! Don't worry about it.

This way!

No, come on! This way!

Get over here! This way! - This way!

Get in there! - I'm telling you it's this way!

Here. Get! Go on!


Kill me!


Phil.

Time to go.

Let's get this over with, man. Move on out of here.


What happened?

You have a pain?

Was it the car? Did it scare you?

Just realized I'm doing the wrong thing.

I should be sending you to boarding school.

Okay. Anyway, you're not Spanish like me.

You're not my mother. You're not my father.

You're not anyone to me. You're not enough for me.

Okay? Okay, Gloria?

So I'm going to find a family, some new friends and a girlfriend too.

Okay.

You're a nice girl, Gloria, but you're not for me.

Fine!

See that bar across the street?

I'm gonna be in there having a drink.

You wanna join me, fine.

If you don't, you wanna run away, that's your problem.

Bye, chiquita! Bye, little sucker!

Bye, little insect!

Bye, little fly! Bye, little, tiny insect!

Bye, sucker!


Wake up. That's all for you, Beanie. I don't want any headaches.

Can I help you, miss?

Yeah.

Give me a beer.

Any particular kind?

Cold.

- Nice and cold. Thanks.

You got the time?

8:30.

You open early.

Every morning, 8:00 a.m.

Listen, bartender, uh, I can't look, for whatever reason.

I-I can't tell you what it is, but...

Look over there.

Is there... Is there a kid coming in the place?

Or standing across the street?

Forget it.

Okay. I'm leaving that for luck.

Have a nice day.


Okay, just keep going down Broadway.

Nice and slow. I'm looking for somebody, okay?

Take a left up here.


There's a lot of Puerto Ricans in New York.

I don't imagine there's too many six-year-old Puerto Ricans though.


Is your name Phil? Come on.

Come on. Is your father home?

Hey, miss, how about a quarter? Can I have a quarter?

Hey, give us some money. Get your hands off me, kid. Beat it!

Come on. Give us a quarter.

Quarter! Tight-ass!

Tight-ass! Tight-ass!

Whatever we do, we do together.

We're not interested in that, kid.

Al, do me a favor. Take a walk. He's okay now.

Go to your room. Hey, take your kid out of there.

- Who is it? It's me. Who do you think it is?

Are you mad at me?

Mad at you? Frank, are we mad at him?

I don't get mad at kids. All we're gonna do is take him for a ride.

That's all. Downstairs.

Oh, Christ.

Oh, Jesus.

You're stupid. You did the same thing... Stay there! Stay there! to his father that they did to mine. Keep right there!

Had to shoot me with a Magnum.

Okay.

Are you kidding?

Okay.

Okay, you bananas.

Inside!

Move it!

Phil! Right here! Next to me.

Gloria, for Christ's sake. Get going, suckers!

There's women and kids here. Gloria, don't be stupid, will ya?

Hold it! There are women and kids here.

Move.

Freeze!

Get out here, kid.

Dames in the bedroom.

That's it.

I want the sissy out here, up against the wall.

Right here.

Don't do it, fella, unless you're sick of your friend here.

Okay, okay.

I'm reaching for it. It's comin' up.

That's it.

Okay, inside, punk!

Are you with that dame? 'Cause I'll kill ya.

Okay, back in the bedroom.

You, out here.

Come on. Let me see that purse.

Back in the bedroom.

Okay, wise guy, your turn.

Okay, give me your piece.

Give me your piece!

All right, easy, easy.

That's it.

Okay, back in the toilet.

Okay, everybody in the bathroom.

Everybody in the bathroom. Everybody.

Shut the door.

In 20 seconds, I'm gonna start shooting through that door.

High, jerks! So get down on your stomachs.

Gloria, what are you doing? I'm saving your life, stupid!

Now pick up those guns. Move it!

Move!

Move it!

Get out.

Double-crossing little rat. Move it!

In the cab. Down there.

Down there.

Come on. Come on. Oh, I'd love it.

Come on. Don't hang back.

I'd love it. Love it.

Get in that cab! - Come on.

Get in there.

Don't lose her.

Think they're gonna scare us, did they?

You know, it's not pleasant killing a woman.

Hey, fellas, here!

Look what she's doing.

Driver, stop. Right here.

Out.

Hey, you. Give me your hand.

You got it, baby.


I know I'm a lot of trouble.

No, you're no trouble.

I mean, I walk into a room full of hoods, a guy pulls a gun on me, and you side with him.

You shot my friend's father.

I'll kill anybody that's trying to kill me.

You're right.

Then you wouldn't take the guns. Then you didn't wanna leave.

I mean, where's your loyalty?

Where's my what?

I can't anymore in this local. Come on. Let's get the express.

Come on. Excuse me.

Hey, did I tell you to come on? Get over here.

Phil? Phil!

Phil. Phil, get off at 42nd Street!

42nd Street!

What?

What?

I don't understand.

What?


Hey!

Hey, leave her alone!

Hey, be cool.

Come on. Let go of me!


Go ahead. Try me.

You'll love it.

Okay? Okay?

Sissies! You let a woman beat ya, huh?

Ya little, tiny nothin'!

Ya punks!

Go ahead, punks!

Come on! Let's go! Move!


I want two tickets...

Excuse me.

When's the next train to Harrisburg?

This place is making me nervous.

We'll go to a hotel. We'll get a night's sleep.

Okay.


You hungry, kid?

No, I'm just tired.

Yeah. Me too, kid.

Boy, they got everything covered.

Trains. Planes.

I don't know.

Maybe Pittsburgh's connected too.

Who knows?

They gotta have gangsters in Pittsburgh too.

They don't.

Okay. Here it is.

Don't be scared.

I got my gun.

It's nothing for me to blow someone's brains out, believe me.

I just hope it's someone I know.

Hey! I'm with you, Gloria.

Get in the bathroom.

Get in there.

Who is it?

It's me. Bellman.

We have our bags.

I have some flowers.


Compliments of the house.

Do you want me to put these in water for you?

Everything all right?

Everything is not all right.

What's wrong?

Thank you.

Thank you.

Thank you.

Take a load off your feet.

Gloria, you won't believe this, but I'm growing up fast.

The first time I met you, I didn't know nothing.

I was ashamed to talk.

We can't go on like this.

What's the matter?

Unpack my clothes, will you? And run a hot bath.

I wanna steam 'em.

You wanna take a bath first? You must stink by now.

Nah, I hate baths.

Don't worry, kid.

Clothes.

Hopeless, stinking mess.


I asked you once if I could be your mother.

You didn't want that.

You wanna be my mother?

You could be my mother.

I don't have any mother, no more mother.

So you could be my mother.

Why would you wanna be my mother?

I don't know.

Just wanna clear things up.

You're my mother. You're my father.

You're my mother.

You're my whole family.

You're even my friend, Gloria.

You're my girlfriend too.

Well, I'd like to be family.

You think they're gonna catch us, huh?

I don't know.

Probably.

You can't beat the system.

What's the system?

The system?

I don't know.

Then how do you know you can't beat it?

Well, not too many people have.

Then have some people did?

Yeah, I think so.

I don't know.

Hey, Gloria, we gotta try.

Even if we get shot.

'Cause you can't just keep on shooting everybody that goes knocking on your door.

Go to bed.

Sure. We'll have a good night's sleep, wake up tomorrow.

You'll think of somethin'.

Yeah.

Want me to turn off the light?

Yeah, turn off the light.

Aren't you coming to bed?

Nah, I'm gonna take a bath.

You go to sleep.


I only have a hundred-dollar bill.

Forget it.

Forget it?

Take the doughnuts. Take everything. Go. Go.

Okay. Thanks.

Hey, Gloria.

Hey, Sill. How are ya?

Long time.

What's up?

What's up with you, baby?

Just leavin'.

See ya, buddy.

Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh.

Move over.

Where to?

Go down two blocks.

Take a left, go another block and take a left again.

That's a one-way, lady.

Then go one more block.

You're looking good, Gloria.

Where ya been?

Give me a break, Sill.

Come on, Gloria. Give it up, will ya? It's all over.

There's no place for you to go.

Look, I take you in now, it means a lot of money to me.

It could make me a big man.

Help! Get your hands off me! Take your hands off me, you fat bastard!

What's goin' on back there? What the hell are you doing?

Hey, why don't you turn around. You look like an ape.

Get out of my cab.

Get out of the cab.

Now take it easy, big fella. What do I owe ya?

I don't want your money. Take a walk.

And don't get back in the cab.

And don't lean on the cab.

Don't lean on the cab!

What's wrong? What's the matter?

Gotta make a phone call.

Operator, I'd like to call 477-9970.

9970.

Yes, I hear it's busy. Don't call me back.

I'll call you in a couple of seconds. Okay?

So, who are you calling?

Hey, Phil, listen to me now.

I'm gonna call Tanzini.

Who's that?

Give me a chance, will you, to be your partner.

I mean, what am I for?

He's an old friend.

He's a mob guy.

But...

Well, we used to live together.

He was your boyfriend?

Let me call this guy.

Okay?

Operator, I'd like to try that 477-9970 again, please.

It's ringing.

Do you trust this guy?

Tony?

Gloria.

How are you?

Yeah, I'm fine.

Never mind where I am.

Can you help me?

Don't tell me "It depends."

I don't wanna hear "It depends."

I'm going to bring the book, Tony.

I'm fine. How are you?

You got fat?

Yeah, I love you too.

I don't wanna say when.

But soon.

What happens if he doesn't help you?

I gotta take the book, Phil.

What happens if he double-crosses you?

He won't. I know him.

What happens if he kills you?

Look, I better give you some money.

I only got hundreds.

Tried to get some change this morning, but I couldn't.

Now take this hundred.

You get change.

Take the rest of these, and you stuff 'em down inside your socks.

Don't tell anybody you got 'em.

You're a kid, and they'll steal 'em from ya.

You wait here three hours.

If I'm not back by then, beat it.

You'll be back, won't you?

Yeah.

I'll be back. Bank on it.

Three hours. Maybe I should wait three and a half.

Okay, three and a half, but no more.

And listen, if I'm not back in three and a half hours, that doesn't mean I'm dead.

It means I'm gonna meet you in the train station in Pittsburgh.

You understand?

I love you, Gloria. I love you to death.

Thanks.

Bolt it.

One, two, three.

Four and a half.

One, two, three... and a half.


What time do you have?

It's 9:02 exactly.

To the button.


What time do you have now? It's still 9:20.

Hope you got change for a hundred.

- Lady, you gotta be kidding. Forget it. Just wait for me.

Tony's expecting me.

Got a million bucks in this slow elevator.

Mr. T?

Gloria's on the way up.


Come in, please.

Excuse me. Could you wait, please?

It doesn't matter to me. Any way you wanna do it.

It's up to him.

Excuse me. She's here.

I don't want to see her now. Let her wait.

She has the book.

Put her inside. She can wait. We don't want to be disturbed.

Okay.

Please.

Would you like coffee?

No.

- La frutta è pronta? Un secondo.

Who? - David.

Everything all right?

Go home.


Excuse me.

Where is the child?

Gloria, you're a smart girl. You understand.

I like children. I don't want to kill children.

Those weren't murders that we did. You understand that?

Yes, I do.

The killings were made to set an example.

Where is the boy?

He's on a boat to South America.

Gloria, trust me.

Maybe we can do something.

Trust you?

Hey, Tony, I know you.

You know the rules.

Tony, it's me. Remember?

I know I'm a policy.

I'm not Gloria anymore. I know that.

Hey, you got a minute?

Smoke a cigarette with me, will you?


Well, hello.

Sorry to meet you guys.

As long as you're here, why don't you sit down?

This is Gloria.

A lot of money... which Gloria knows, as she is one of us... has been jeopardized.

Let me tell you about this kid.

I know you all approve of mothers.

I know you all have mothers.

Me, I'm not a mother.

I'm one of those sensations.

I was always a broad. Can't stand the sight of milk.

Okay, I know you guys are gonna have your day, but, uh, maybe I could have a drink?

Do you think I could have a drink?


L'chaim.

Nice girl.

Tell me about the boy.

Kill me.

What are you trying to say, Gloria?

Life is very dear. You think I want to kill you?

I made love with you.

I bought you jewels.

He made a mistake.

He knew names, dates, money, account numbers, and he wrote it all down in that book.

Did you read the book? Yeah, I read the book.

Popeye. Mickey Mouse. So what?

The father turned state's evidence.

He was talking to F.B.I., C.I.A.

Big mouth. He hurt a lot of people.

People that liked him.

The boy didn't see the murder. He was with me.

Hey, I don't like this kid.

You can't go around shooting our people.

Every time we try to talk to you, you pull a gun.

You kill people, people get angry.

I understand. You are a woman. He is a little boy. You fall in love.

Every woman is a mother.

You love him.

I love Phil?

We need the boy.

This kid is...

And I'm just saying this

'cause I don't know what the hell else to say, but... he's, uh... he's, uh, very smart.

You know, an ingenious guy... that, uh...

that I think is one of the greatest guys I ever slept with.

You know what I mean?

Yeah. I know.

You wanna shoot me? Go ahead. Shoot.

Hope I'm not holding you up.

Tony, you know I don't want to be tortured.

So if you're a friend of mine, just do it quick, okay?

Tell you what, Mr. T.

I'm gonna get up and walk out of here now.

If you wanna stop me, you can.

She's leaving.

Come on!

Kill her. Shoot that...

Give me the Magnum.


Hello?

Are you the man in 310-A?

Yes, I'm the man.

This is the desk. We want to know if you're checking out.

I don't know.

All right, then, you'll be keeping the room.

Yes.

We'll be staying here for two days.

Fine. We're just checking.


Can I have change for this, please?

How do you want it?

All fives and five ones.


Pittsburgh.

...track number eight.

Any passengers having tickets and reservations on this train are permitted to board.

Broadway Limited boards on track number eight, west gate.

Thank you.


Where are you going?

I don't know. I've never been to Pittsburgh before.

I think I was supposed to take a later train.

Well, maybe you can call them.

Well, they're at the cemetery.

Which cemetery is that?

I... I forgot the name of it.

Carson Memorial?

That's it.

That's a long way from here. Want me to give you a lift?

No, thanks. You're a very nice man.


Want to wait for me? I want to go back to town.

How much money do you have?

Hey, buddy, don't worry about it.

I have money.

Is that enough, or it's gonna cost me more?


Hello, Gloria.

How are you?

I missed you.

But I know you're dead.

And I want you to know that I know you're dead.

Anyway, give my love to my family.

And I know you'll be seeing each other.

My mother loved you anyway, even though I didn't till now.

I made it to Pittsburgh.

And... amen.


Aren't you going to kiss your grandmother?
