I tell you what.

That's got to be the prettiest girl we've ever had in competition.

I tell ya.

Now let's welcome back our six finalists onstage.

Come on back out, girls.

There they are. They're as pretty as they can be, aren't they? I'll tell you.

We're proud of you, girls. You worked hard. Your mamas and daddies have worked hard.

We're mighty proud of you.

All right!

Whoo-hoo!

God, look at her. I mean, she was born for this.

I had no idea her breasts were so ample.

Dude, she does these exercises that pump 'em up.

Guys, hi. I'm on sexist overload as it is.

Kill the commentary.

Now, in the spirit of mother Teresa, what will be your contribution to your community and the world at large?

Well, Bob, at summer's end I plan to move to New York City, where I'll pursue a career as a serious actress.

It's my goal to entertain the world through artistic expression.

Through art, I shall serve my country.

Do you feed her this shit?

Work it, babe.

Man, they're eatin' it up. Look, she's incredible.

And now, this year's croaker queen is...

Miss Helen shivers!

Yeah! Yeah, that's my girl! That's my girl!

That's my girlfriend! Helen!

Yeah, baby, yeah!

Hey, it's all about the hair. Don't you forget that.

Especially when you become some big hotshot lawyer.

Those professional women types think it's all about brains and ability... and completely ignore the "do".

So, the "do's" vital. Got it.

Hey, you ridin' with me? Uh, no, tell mom I'll be late.

Uh, is little miss croaker getting sauteed tonight?

Ho, a twit with a wit. Eat me.

Hey, Julie. Brought you a shooter on the house.

Oh, thanks, Max, but you know what, I have this mental block.

I can't get past the slime. How 'bout I take you out before you leave town?

You know, kind of a bon voyage thing.

Oh, uh-- you know what-- I-I don't, I don't think so, Max.

We've been friends since forever.

Now, you can't just leave without a farewell, right? Right.

A toast to us.

To our last summer of... immature, adolescent decadence.

Somebody's buzzed.

Yo, chum bait, take a hike. Hey! Hey!

Hey, easy! Easy!

Hey! Come on, man. Barry, they're just friends.

Man, this is tired.

Hey, Ray, just taking care of your girl like I promised.

Thanks, buddy. Let's blow.

Yeah, hey, let's beam down to Dawson's beach. Little joyride.

Good-bye.

So the boy and girl are making out, right, when they hear over the radio that this lunatic killer's escaped from an insane asylum.

He's got this long, sharp hook for a hand, right?

Dude, your tellin' it wrong.

Shut up. So the girl, she gets all scared, right?

She wants to go home. And the boy, all hot and bothered, - he gets pissed and peels out. Wait. No, no, no.

That's not the way it goes. Okay, the boy goes for help, and the girl stays in the car, and she hears this, like, scratching sound-- it's not a scratching sound. It's a drip. Drip, drip.

No, it's scratching because the guy's been hung...

From a tree and his feet are scratching on the car. No.

He's been decapitated, and it's the blood from his severed neck... that's dripping on the car, and it's going, drip, drip, drip.

No, he wasn't decapitated. He was gutted with a hook.

That's the way I heard it.

Look, you're all wrong.

They get back to the girl's house, and they find...

The lunatic's bloody hook in the car door.

Now, that's the original story. That's the way it really happened.

Hey, hey. None of it really happened.

It's a bullshit ghost story to begin with. No, it's not.

- It's true. Yeah, I don't think so, Ray.

I swear it. Please.

It's a fictional story created to warn young girls...

Of the dangers of having premarital sex.

Well, actually, honey-- and you know how terrified I am of your I.Q., but-- it's an urban legend, American folklore.

And they all usually originate from some sort of real-life incident.

So, by that time, i will just be finishing my two-year contract on guiding light, coinciding with your first year as starting quarterback for the steelers.

Cowboys. Whoever.

Then, we can elope to Europe, or the Caymans, wherever, where I'll let you impregnate me...

With the first of three children...

Before you head off to rehab.

And then we can live happily, blah, blah, blah.

Ray? Ray?

Where'd you go?

I'm gonna hook you!

Hey, Ray, you don't really believe all that crap, do you? That's true.

Please, the hook is really a phallic symbol.

Oh, really? Yeah, ultimately castrated.

God, I'm gonna miss you.

You don't have to. You can always ditch this Boston thing, and, uh, come to New York with me.

Yeah, well, we can't all sit in a village coffeehouse and ramble esoterically on our laptops.

There just isn't enough room.

See, nobody gets me the way you do. I understand your pain.

Precisely. I hate this. I really hate this.

You're gonna go off, and you're gonna fall for some head-shaven, black-wearing, tattoo-covered, body-piercing philosophy student.

That sounds attractive.

And I'll never see you again. Hey!

Did you know the success rate of high school sweetheart relationships...

Is higher than any other type of relationship?

Yeah? Cite your source.

All right. Come on. Come ride in the back with me. I'll let you do things to me.

Mm-hmm, mm-hmm. Nobody drives my car but me.

Hey! You asshole!

What's wrong with you?

Watch out!

- What was that? I don't know.

Is everybody okay?

I think it was an animal.

God, you're bleeding!

It's not mine. It must've been a dog or something.

Jesus Christ, my fuckin' car!

You fuck! Can't you see where you're goin'?

Look, it-it came out of nowhere. I didn't see it!

A dog couldn't have done that. Yeah, well, a fuckin' deer could.

Look, you dropped your bottle. I was just trying to-- my dad is going to freak.

Barry, it was an accident. Leave him alone.

Where is it? If it was a deer, then where is it?

Look, m-maybe it ran off.

I hope so. I hope we didn't kill it. Fuck that. Let's go.

Oh, my God!

No way.

Oh, my God. But I thought--

- I didn't see it. No, there's no way!

Oh, my God, this isn't happening!

You check that side. Yeah.

Come on. Helen.

No!

I couldn't see it! Look, I swear!

Is he dead? I don't know.

Check his pulse. No way!

You're the one who rammed him! Just do it!

I think he's dead.

Shit! Fuck!

Who is he?

I can't tell. His face is all messed up.

What the hell was he doing out here?

We've gotta call the police and get an ambulance out here.

Hey, hey, what's your hurry?

The guy's dead.

You're not a doctor. You don't make that decision.

Use your brain, Julie. We call the police, and we're fucked.

It was an accident. Look, let's think about this a minute.

Think about what? Think about what?

He was crossing the road in the middle of the night, okay?

It was an accident. You weren't drinking or speeding.

There's liquor all over the car. But you're sober.

They'll never believe I was driving. It's my car.

They'll nail my ass. That's not true.

Are you kidding? Look at me.

I'm drunk as shit. I'm fucked.

No, we'll call the police. We'll tell them the truth!

They'll believe us. It's manslaughter.

We're gonna fry no matter who takes the fall. Then we leave right now.

No way. Are you crazy?

The grill's busted. There's blood everywhere. We can clean it up. Come on.

Listen to yourselves. No, we are going to the police!

We don't have time for your shit! We gotta move fast!

Hey! Now, let's try to stay calm.

Focus. Don't you get it?

If there's some of him on the car, there's some of the car on him.

They're gonna trace it back to you. You're looking at a hit-and-run.

Then we dump the body.

You've lost it. Look, just pretend we were never here.

We could drag him to the water and dump him in.

They wouldn't find the fucker for weeks.

By that time all the evidence would be washed away.

If they found him at all.

The currents are strong. The undertow-- it could carry him out to sea.

I won't be any part of it.

Look, I'm scared, Julie. I'm not like the rest of you.

I don't have your family or the money to get me out of this.

Please. This is your future, Julie.

Think about it.

College. There's your scholarship.

The guy's already dead. If we go to the police, we're dead too.

Fuck.

What do we do? Help me.

Shit, they're slowing down!

- Who is it? It's Max.

Get rid of him!

Julie, what you got, car trouble?

Actually, um--

It's Barry. He's had way too much to drink.

And we're trying to keep the upchuck out of the new car.

- Well, it doesn't look so new anymore. Yeah, don't drink and drive.

Daddy's gonna be mad.

What can I do for you, Max? You can wipe that "my shit don't stink" grin off.

Okay, Max. Will do. Have a good night.

Y-you almost got that rich boy act down, Ray.

We'll be seeing you, Max.

Yep. Take care, Julie.


Even if his body washes ashore in the next couple of weeks, it'll be eaten by crabs and small fish.

Maybe we'll get lucky with a shark.

Take him to the side.

Put him down. Easy.

That's it.

Let's do it. Wait.

What?

Should we check his wallet and see who he is?

- Why? I don't know, okay?

Just to know. I don't wanna know.

Let's just pretend he's some escaped lunatic...

With a hook for a hand, and we're doing everybody a favor.

Ray, help me.

I don't think I can, Barry. Shit! We agreed.

Come on, Barry. It's not too late. You! Shut up!

- Just shut up! Christ already, I'll do it!

Help! Get him off of me!

Get him!

My crown! He's got my crown!

No!

Barry! Barry!


Over here!

Ooh!

Let's get out of here. We're going home now, and never ever, under any circumstances...

Known to God, speak about this again.

Is that clear?

It is now merely a future therapy bill, agreed?

Helen!

I'll never mention it again.

We make a pact, right here and now. We take this to our grave.

Agreed.

Julie?

Don't you nod your head. You fuckin' say it!

Yeah, okay.

We take this to our grave! Let me hear it! Let her go, Barry!

You fuckin' say it.

Okay, Barry, we take this to the grave.

It'll be okay.

I changed my mind. I'm not going.

Julie, get your white-as-death, chalky corpse in the car now.

I said, "come on."

Julie, you're going home for the summer, and you're gonna get a tan on that pasty-pale tail of yours.

Let's go.


Remember. Sun and fun.

Yeah. Yeah.

Julie?

Welcome home, dear.

I missed you.

How's the snapper?

I-I really wanted monkfish, but, uh, it's been a bad season and--

are you on drugs?

What?

I just wanted to surprise you. I want an honest reaction.

No.

No, mom. No drugs.

Well, then, what is wrong? I mean, you look like death.

Yeah, well, I've had a rough year.


You got some mail. A letter came today.

It's not your report card, though. That came last week.

Mom, I know it looks bad, but the summer session went really well.

Well, it would have to, because according to the Dean, you only have one more chance.

It's not that serious. Really.

What happened to my daughter?

I mean, you went away, and you don't call and you don't visit.

Your father must be turning over in his grave.


Who sent this?

Uh, there's no postmark or return address.

Your guess is as good as mine. Why, what does it say?

Nothing.

Good morning. Hi.

Well, well. Look what the cat drug in.

Elsa, hi.

You know what? I need to talk to Helen, and I was wondering...

If you could give me her New York number? Her New York number.

Yeah, I need to talk to her.

Fact check, Julie. Helen doesn't have a New York number.

If you need to speak with her, I suggest you go to women's fragrances, ten feet to your left.

Frightening, isn't it?

Julie?

Wh-when did you get home?

Yesterday.

It's good to see you. What happened to New York?

I went for a while. It, um-- it didn't really work out.

Somebody sent this to me.

- Oh, my God. Somebody knows, Helen.

How?

I don't know. Julie, we were so careful.

Were we? Were we?

What if somebody saw us? What if somebody else was there that night?

Who? It's been a year. I don't know.

H-has Barry seen this?

Do you ever see Barry at school?

It's a big campus. Are you sure he came back?

I saw his car the other day at the gym.

Did you guys break up?

Hey!

What are you two doin' here?

Hi, bar.

This is nothing. "I know what you did last summer"?

Ooh. What a crock of shit. We need help.

Yeah, I'll say. You know, you guys should check out a mirror once in a while.

You two look like shit run over twice. You're a prick.

We can't just ignore it.

Come on, Julie. How do you know this is even related?

You did a lot of things last summer.

Yeah, well, only one murder comes to mind. You shut the hell up!

We didn't murder anyone.

He was still alive when we dumped him in the water. Do we have to rehash this?

It was an accident. The guy was in the middle of the road.

His name was David Egan. Who?

David Egan.

He was found three weeks after we-- his body was caught in a shrimp net not far from Miller's dock.

It was in the paper.

I think the police called it an accidental drowning.

You can call it an accident all you want, but he died because of us. That's certain.

What about Ray?

Have you shown this letter to him? What does he think?

I haven't seen Ray since last summer.

We broke up, and last I heard he was working up north.

Okay, let's suppose somebody was there that night.

Why send a letter one year later?

Probably some crack fuckin' around.

Max.

Max, what-- you think?

Who else? He was there.

Bring that other pallet.

You two wait here. What are you gonna do?

I know what I'm doin'.

Well, go figure.

You know, I was just thinking to myself, "whatever happened to that Barry Cox?"

Hey, Max.

Listen, can we talk a sec, in private?

Oh, what, this isn't private enough for you?

Yeah, what?

Ow! Look, you shit, we got your little letter.

What the hell are you talking about? Don't fuck with me, Max.

You saw us that night. What the fuck are you on, huh?

Jesus! Listen, I'm gonna say this once.

I'll fuckin' kill your ass. I got no problem with that. Oh, get the fuck off me.

Get off of me. Understand?

Ah! Shit.

Motherfucker!

Don't you test me, motherfucker!

I'll call the cops on your college quarterback ass!

So, did he admit to the letter? He won't bother you anymore.

What did you do? I took care of it, okay?

How? I scared the shit out of him, all right?

Well, I'll be damned.

Put another container on it! Hi.

So, Ray grew up to be a fisherman, huh?

Yeah, almost a year now. I work on that one over there, on the end.

That's nice. Have a nice life, guys. I'm outta here.

You got a minute?

I gotta get back to work.

Call me. We can get together.

Yeah, okay.

W-we need to talk.

Do you think Max sent it? Barry does. I don't know.

Well, you know how Max feels about you guys.

Look, he's probably just screwing around. He doesn't have much else to do.

Yeah, maybe.

So, how's school?

So, you're a fisherman.

Yeah, prophecy fulfilled, right?

I've become my father. I thought you didn't know your dad.

Ah, he worked the boats. That's all I do know about him.

Look, I thought a lot about last summer.

I know you hold me responsible for what happened. I don't hold you responsible.

No, I'm responsible for my own actions, and I don't blame you.

But I don't want to know you, either.

What do you want?

I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I swear, we didn't mean it. Please.

Please don't.

One moment, please, officer.

Mm-hmm.

Julie.

What happened?

No, for the 40th fucking time, I couldn't see his face.

We have no choice here, okay? Somebody tried to kill you last night.

We have to go to the police. No, he wasn't trying to kill me last night.

If he wanted me dead, he could've done it. He's just fuckin' with us.

Who is? I don't know. Some guy in a slicker.

Well, that narrows it down, this being a quaint little fishing village and all.

And since you bring it up, we all know you have a slicker.

You are not gonna throw this on me.

No, guys, please don't do this. This isn't getting us anywhere!

Look, maybe we should just come clean.

No. No, we made a pact, and we're gonna keep it.

Yeah, but that's insane now, Barry. Look at us. This secret's killing us.

I'm not going to the police, and you're not either.

Barry, please. We could put an end to it...

And maybe salvage some small fraction of a life.

And how do we do that, huh? There was no accident, Julie.

It was murder. Your words, remember? Murder.

I say we find the fuck who's doing this and have a little one-on-one.

What, like last night, bar? Fuck you!

No, Barry's right. Whoever's doing this isn't going to the police.

We could find this guy, talk to him.

How do we find him?

Well, it's gotta be a friend or a family member of the guy we hit.

What was his name?

David Egan. Right.

David Egan.

Look, I don't think we should give up on Max.

I mean, it could still be him. Then find him, Ray.

Prove Barry wrong. That's what you want, isn't it?

No. Now, what I want is for you and me to just-- listen to me, Ray, okay?

I want you to get something. There is no "you and me".

Dr. brown. Dr. brown.

Okay, I can access the local library on-line.

I think we can cross-reference and pull up all we need to know.

Egan, David.

- All these articles are about David Egan? Yeah, or at least mention him.

It should pull up anything with his name.

Wait, July 5. Two years ago. What's this?

"Susie Willis died of drowning.

"She was trapped in a car after it skidded out of control...

"In the reefs near Dawson's beach.

The driver, David Egan, was unharmed." I remember that wreck.

"Susie was engaged to David. They were going to be married."

Wait a second. I remember he had her name tattooed on his arm. I saw it.

"Survived by his mother Claire and sister Melissa Egan of Maribel County."

They live in the sticks. What do you think?

What have we got to lose?

Turn right. Where?

Back there.

What if they're waiting for us?

What if they recognize us? They could have a gun, shoot us dead.

It's been a year, Helen. They could've done that already.

Jodie foster tried this, and a serial killer answered the door.

Well, it was a good try.

Adding breaking and entering to our crime spree?

Can I help you?

Oh, um, hi. Our car stalled down the road, and we were just wondering if maybe we could use your phone?

Phone's over there. Oh, thanks.

Um, Jody, will you call triple a?

You got it, Angela.

My name is Missy Egan. Are you girls from Maribel?

Oh, southport. Uh, I went to southport high.

Yeah, I-I knew you looked familiar. Wh-what year?

- Uh, class of '88. Your name, Egan, sounds very familiar.

Did you have a brother or something? I did, but he was younger.

David. Younger.

- What class was he? Uh, '92, but he's dead. He died last July.

I'm-I'm so sorry.

Thanks. D-do you, uh, do you live alone?

Yeah, I do.

Uh, well, my daddy died a long time ago, and my mama, she's...

In a home in aurora, because she didn't take too well to what happened to David.

Things just haven't been the same since he died.

They're on their way.

I could, uh-- I could make you guys a cup of tea while you're waitin'.

Thanks. Yeah, thanks. That-that's nice of you.

You know, I think I remember David.

He had a friend, right? What was his name?

Who?

Didn't he hang out with this guy? And they were really close.

God, what was his name? Um. Oh, I-I-I don't know.

I didn't-- I didn't know too many of David's friends.

Oh.

But there was one guy, one guy.

He-he stopped by not too long after David's death, and-and he came to pay his respects.

Really? Oh, yeah. He was a really nice guy.

He was cute and smart and-- well, we were-- we were sweet on each other...

For about two minutes, but it didn't work out.

You know, he did-- he never really said it, but I think it hurt him to be around me.

Where is this old friend now?

Oh, I-- I don't know.

Do you remember his name? Billy.

Did he have a last name? Blue. Billy Blue.

Well, you know what? We should probably wait back at the car.

No, don't be ridiculous. Why don't-- uh, stay.

No, I-I don't, I don't want to miss triple a.

We appreciate the phone. Anytime, you know.

I-I don't get too many knocks on my door nowadays.

You okay?

I wigged out. I'm sorry.

But being in his house and seeing his sister--

God. Do you see what we've done?

It was an accident.

Helen, we killed a man, and then ruined the lives of everyone he knew.

I don't think we're that powerful, Julie. You're giving us too much credit.

Hey!

You forgot your cigarettes. Thank you.

Well, I see you've got this car started, didn't you?

Yeah, damnedest thing. It started right up. Funny how that happens.


So, what now?

Now we try and locate this Billy Blue.

Maybe he wanted to die.

What? David Egan.

His girlfriend was killed on that same road July 4, one year earlier.

Maybe he blamed himself. Maybe he was sitting in the road waiting for us to hit him.

Yeah, if that will help you sleep at night.

What happened between us?

We used to be best friends.

We used to be a lot of things.

I miss you.

Yeah, well.

Low in the dirt, ball two.

Garrett doesn't seem to have his typical control today, Greg.

In fact, this is as wild as we've ever seen him in the season.

That's right, Dave. In fact, over the last three games, he's only allowed three bases on balls, not one of those runners ever scoring.

Pretty remarkable indeed as neale steps back into the box--

Hey, dad. One to nothing here in the third.

Garrett taking his time. Here's the pitch.

Strike one. Wicked cut. Neale seemed fooled by that pitch.

In fact, in addition to the split-fingered fastball--

Ready now with the sign and the pitch. Fouled off.

Strike two. Last year, neale would've been sending that pitch...

Over to the next County. It's true.

And the pitch. Very high and very inside.

I don't know what it is.

I couldn't agree more, as the count is full now at three and two.

Garrett settling himself, looking at the sign.

Here's the windup.

There's a smash up the middle!

They got him! Nice play at second. Wow, what a play.


Hey, is the washed-up, dried-out has-been having a moment?

What do you want?

We're doing inventory at the store tomorrow. I need you there by 10:00.

I can't. I'm in the parade tomorrow.

Well, dad put me in charge of the store, and I want you there by 10:00.

The outgoing queen has to ride in the parade prior to the pageant.

It's tradition. There's nothing I can do about it.

You and your hair. It is so pathetic.

You can leave now.

So very pathetic.


No!

No! No! No!

Hello?

What? Oh, my God.


Max!


You sure he was dead? Don't ask me that again!

He was dead, okay? I saw him with-- with these crabs.

You do it.

No, don't even-- he was there, goddamn it! And he was wearing your jacket, Barry.

Well, where'd he go? Did the crabs carry him away?

I swear to God. I believe you, Julie.

He took the body. He came and he took the body.

Why would he do that? I don't know, Barry. Okay?

Why would he try to run you over? Why did he make coleslaw on Helen's head?

He's fucking with us! Come on, Julie. Let's go back to the house.

Where's your jacket, Barry?

Don't you see? He's got us now.

This is exactly what he wants. We can't go to the police. Not now. He's made sure of that.

He's just out there and he's watching us and waiting. What are you waiting for, huh?

What are you waiting for?

What are you doin' here?

Hey, I've been lookin' everywhere for you guys. You're gonna die.

Hey, stop it! What are you doin'?

Stop it! Stop! I didn't do anything!

You're fuckin' lyin'. He's lying!

Leave him alone. Get a grip. No, wake up, Julie! He's behind this.

How many fucked-up fishermen are out there? Look, he's after me too.

I got a letter.

Oh, you got a letter. I got run over, Helen gets her hair chopped off, Julie gets a body in a trunk and you get a letter?

That's balanced. What body? What are you talking-- drop the act. You killed Max. You took my jacket.

Max is dead? What is it with you, Ray?

You were doggin' us from the start, weren't you? Always wantin' to be our friend, but you were too fuckin' jealous to handle it.

- Look, fuck you! Stop it!

Look, we have to stick together, all right?

We have to help each other.

Okay, so if it's not fisher boy here, who is it and how do we find him?

We think his name is Billy Blue.

How do you know that?

Missy said there was a friend named Billy Blue.

Who probably went to school with David Egan. So, according to sis, that would make him class of '92.

Elsa was class of '92.

Maybe there's something in her yearbook.

That's him, huh? It's hard to believe that's the guy.

Yeah, his face isn't splattered all over the road, dumb ass.

Maybe Blue's not his real name.

That's right. I mean, he could've easily lied to Missy. We did.

We should bring the yearbook to Missy. If she had it-- she could point him out.

I'm not goin' anywhere.

Wh-- high school mug shots? Wh--

I'll go. You've got that parade today.

Forget it. No! No, you need to be there in case he shows up.

I don't want him to show up! Look, Helen, this could be our chance.

Okay, we could catch him.

I'll go to Missy's. Barry, go to the parade with Helen and don't let her out of your sight.

If he shows up-- I'll pound his ass.

Listen to yourselves. You sound like a bunch of vigilantes.

It's July 4, Ray. Okay? This is his day.

Whatever he has planned is gonna happen today unless we stop him.

Look, come on, Julie. Don't you see?

It's that moment where we have to make a decision.

Let's make the right one this time.

I'm not interested in what's right anymore, Ray. I wanna do what's smart.

Then let's get the hell out of here. We can leave town, disappear.

I've already disappeared. Okay, now I want my life back.

Look, we have to face this.

What's it gonna be, Ray?


Barry? Barry!

Over there!

Move!

Move it!

Oh, shit!

Where the hell is he?


♪ I'm goin' where the cold wind blows ♪

Missy?

♪ Where the sun don't ever shine ♪ Hello?

♪ My girl, my girl

♪ don't you lie to me

♪ tell me where did you sleep last night ♪

Hello?

Hello?


Please. Please.

Missy?

Missy, do you remember me from the other day?

You know, the car trouble? What are you doin' here?


Please, we need to talk.

Hmm. I need to find your brother's friend Billy Blue.

I need to talk to him. I was thinking maybe you could look through this yearbook.

What-- what's this all about?

Well, it's too crazy to explain, but it has to do with your brother and last July 4.

What about it?

What happened to your brother wasn't an accident. There's more to it than that.

I know. You know what?

Well, he killed himself.

He what?

He, uh-- he went up there to die that night. That's where Susie died.

See, the whole town blamed him for her death.

So, he blamed himself.

But how do you know it was a suicide?

He left a note.

I had to keep this hidden from the insurance company 'cause they wouldn't-- they wouldn't pay me the money, you know, if it was suicide.

Uh, yeah, that don't much matter anymore because, uh, money's been spent.

That's it.

This isn't a suicide note. This is a death threat.

What are you ta-- what are you-- what are you talking about?

Your brother didn't kill himself, Missy.

I saw him. I was there. And whoever sent this was there too.

What do you mean? Where did you see him? He was crossing the road.

We hit him. It was an accident. No!

My brother drowned. I saw him. He had "Susie" tattooed on his arm.

He doesn't have a tattoo. I saw it on his right forearm.

You didn't see anything! Get outta here.

Get out of my house.

Oh, my God.

It wasn't your brother.

Testing. One, two, three, four.

Leon, pull it up a little bit. There's gonna be a lot of people in here who can't hear it.

Pull it up just-- one, two, three-- now that's got it. Don't nobody mess with it. Leave it right there.

Cut 'em.

Stay calm. I'll be up in the balcony.

He had a hook, Barry. I saw it. It was a big, huge hook.

Everything's gonna be all right.

I'm not gonna let anything happen to you.

Very nicely done, ladies.

Now, let's meet last year's winner, miss Helen shivers.

Way to go, Helen!

No-o-o-o!

Somebody help him, please! Somebody help him!

The balcony!

- Barry-y-y!

Help him! Barry! Help him! Barry, no!

Help him! Please don't!

Excuse me. Someone listen to me!

He's got him-- hey, hey, hey! What's the problem?

Help him! He's gonna kill him! Who? Who's killin' who?

- Up in the balcony. - All right, everybody, stay calm.

Get off of me!

You people just move back in your seats. Everything's under control here.

Go back in your seats now, please. Thank you. Everybody move back.

Ma'am, stay behind me, okay?

All right, ladies, places please. Places.

There's nobody up here. I gotta tell you, this is really not my idea of a funny joke.

He was here. Who was here?

The fisherman. He killed Barry! Barry who? Who?

Who we talkin' about? There's nobody up here. Come on. Let's go downstairs.

Come on. There's nobody up here.

Watch your step.

Ladies and gentlemen, if you'll take your seats.

It was a false alarm. We're gonna resume in a few minutes.

Ma'am, I'm gonna take you home.

Your parents are really worried about you.

You have to believe me.

Why don't you let me take you home, okay?

Uh, excuse me.

We'll be needing this.

Oh, come on. Hurry, hurry, hurry.

- So, then he killed him with a fishhook. Yes.

Did this fisherman use the same hook that cut your hair off?

No, he used scissors, asshole.

Look, okay, I know I sound delusional, but it's true.

You know, I've heard this story before, except the way I heard it it wasn't a fisherman, it was an escaped mental patient...

And he had a hook for a hand.

Well, we're gonna have to take the alley.

Look, you little shit-stick, mayberry-ass reject, there's been a murder, and you're gonna fry in hell if you ignore it.

All right, I'll tell you what I'll do, okay?

I'll contact Barry's parents and we'll put out a search for him, all right?

He was probably just playin' a prank on you.

Oh, Jesus.

Listen, I'm just gonna be a minute, all right? I'm gonna see if this fella needs help.

It's-- it's him.

What's the trouble?

That's him! Behind you!

Behind you!

No-o-o-o!

No! No!

Julie, what are you doing here? We didn't kill David Egan.

It was someone else on the road that night. What are you talking about?

But they found David's body in the water.Susie's father, yeah, I know.'S a fishermabena but I think Ben Willis killed David Egan. Wait a second.

You think Willis killed David, then we killed him?

What if he didn't die, Ray? What if he's still alive?

This is crazy.

Come aboard. Come inside.

No, we've gotta find Helen and Barry. We will. We will.

You.

Oh, my God. It's you. What are you talkin' about?

Billy Blue. You went to Missy's.

You're-- you're the friend. You're the fisherman.

Wha-- I-I-I can explain. Julie, wait!

Julie! Oh, shit!

Julie! Stop it!

Oh. Oh, please help me. Please.

Easy, child. Please, I need to call the police.

On the boat. Inside. Hurry!


Are you in some kind of trouble, child?

Yes. Yeah. I'm in a lot of trouble.

That's a shame...

Being it's fourth of July and all.

Kids like you should be out having fun:

Drinking, partying, running people over, getting away with murder; Things like that.

You.

Ben Willis. Good.

I see you've been doing your homework too.

Shit.


Welcome aboard, Ray.


Julie!


Ray!


No-o-o-o!

Open the door, Julie.

You got no place to hide.


No. No.


Come on, Julie!

Ray!

E.

Please, it was an accident. I know all about accidents.

And let me give you some advice: When you leave a man for dead, make sure he's really dead!


We never killed anyone. This whole year was for-- I know.

The guilt was killin' me.

And I had to know who he was.

That's why I went to see Missy.

I'm sorry I didn't tell you, but... I wanted you back.

I couldn't lose you again.

I love you, Julie.

No one gets me the way you do.

I understand your pain.

Do you have any idea why this man would want you dead?

None. No.

Here it comes!

Well, don't worry.

The body'll turn up. They usually do.

Yeah, well, I made the Dean's list.

Thank you very much.

No, I know. I miss you too. But I'm gonna see you in a couple of weeks.

God, I cannot wait. I love New York.

No, of course I love you more.

Yes, I do. I love you and you know that. But you know what?

I've gotta take a shower. I'm running really late.

Hey, Julie, you got some mail.

Oh, thanks, Deb.

A towel.

Ray, don't you start with me. Look, you, mister, can ravage me in two weeks.

Yes, I love you too. 'Kay, yes, I love you.
