Into the Night (1985) Script

Do you want some coffee?

Just a minute.

What did you say?

Do you want me to make you some coffee?

No. No, thanks.

Aren't you hungry?

Oh, yeah, sure.

What's the matter, Ed? Why aren't you sleeping?

I don't know.

Well, what can I do?

Just love me, okay?

Oh, that's Stan.

What is it? Am I doing something wrong?

No, of course not. Well, what is it?

I don't know.

Oh, we better go. Herb's probably going berserk by now.

Herb can wait. I gotta go.

Have a nice day.


"Have a nice day"?

It's the Ken and Bob Company.

I'm moving! I'm moving!

KOST-103. Good morning. I'm David K. Duncan.

Commander Chuck Street with traffic. How's it going?

We've got a slowdown on that south bound Pasadena freeway.

This is the Dave Hull program on KRLA, but we are gonna interrupt the show now for this special announce...

Don't you want to hear what happened?

No, not really.

If it's important, I guess they'll let us know anyway.

Ah, a smile! Okay, now we're gettin' somewhere.

All right, Mr. No-Sleep, I have something for you.

What's three miles long and has an IQ of 165?

A Saint Patrick's Day parade.

Actually, it's a Cinco de Mayo parade.

I can't sleep anymore, Herb. Are you gonna be all right?

I don't want you nodding off at the wheel. No, no, I'm fine.

We can switch. I'm fine. I'm okay.

I don't know. I don't know.

My job is a dead end.

I feel weird, like I'm from another planet or something.

Ellen kissed me on the top of my head this morning and said, "Have a nice day."

Can you believe that? What's wrong with that?

Bank tellers say, "Have a nice day."

The cashier at the supermarket says, "Have a nice day."

I just think that somehow your wife should say something better than, "Have a nice day."

You're losing your mind, Ed. How long have you had insomnia?

My last good night's sleep? Yeah, the full eight hours.

Seems like... 1980. Yeah, the summer of 1980.

You're in bed. You can't sleep. I don't see the problem.

You go to the airport, catch the midnight flight to Las Vegas.

Nobody sleeps there. Very funny, Herb.

No, listen, I'm serious. You need some action. I'm not a gambler.

Don't gamble. Have a few drinks. See a show.

Get loose. Get laid. Oh, wonderful.

I'm sure Ellen would love it. You'll be home before she wakes up.

Sex isn't the problem.

When was the last time you fucked your wife? You're a classy guy, Herb.

Up in Vegas, there's a beautiful, young girl named Melissa.

She will do anything you want for $200 an hour. Two hundred dollars?

Anything you want. Anything. For example?

If you want, she'll dress up like Santa Claus.

Would she bring me a pony? You're having trouble with this concept.

I'm talking about the universe of infinite possibility. No such thing.

The only limits are money and imagination.

Sorry. I'm a little short on both.

Hello, Fielding.

How much would I have to pay one of these women for sympathy?

Sympathy? Very kinky, Ed.

I'll see you at lunch.


Ed Okin.

They're claiming we've got a synchronization problem.

Naturally, this has nothing to do with their god-awful carrier tracking loop.

They want full tolerance checks on all buggers, sensors and corresponding transducers.

Scanners seem to check out.

Yeah, but that's on the uplink. The problem is downlink.

Ed, have you got the signal-to-noise ratio on the downlink?

Ed?

Yeah?

Have you got it? What's that?

Yep, we're having synchronization problems.

I need the signal-to-noise ratio on the downlink.

Signal-to-noise. Right. Um, mm-hmm.

Right. I've got it here.

I was just, uh...

Uh... signal-to-noise, signal-to-noise.

Signal-to-noise: 5.3 db. Five point three?

What modulation scheme?

Uh, B.P.S.K. "B.P.S.K.?"

Isn't that correct?

We switched to Q.P.S.K. two weeks ago.

Q.P.S.K.?

It was incredible. I can't tell you how I felt.

I wish I'd seen it. The whole place was excited.

I couldn't talk my wife out of going to the orchid show. Everyone was there.

If you missed it, you can see it on cable.

His family was there.

Listen, I'm gonna go home and try to take a nap.

If I don't come back, can you get another ride?

Sure. Absolutely. Go home and get some sleep.

Yes.

He's been having trouble sleeping lately.


Here's Cal Worthington and his dog, Spot.


Sure you don't want ice cream?

No. No, thanks.

It's awfully good.

It's Haagen-Dazs strawberry.

It's delicious and good for you.

How was work today?

Same as always.

How was your day?

Uh, not too good.

I'm sorry, sweetheart.

Is there anything I can do?


You Al I right?

Yes. The light's green.

Oh. Thank you.


Help me! Help me!

Go!

Where's a cop? Just get us out.


Here we go.

Hey, hey! No, no, no, no!

It's okay. Calm down.

Officer, this woman was attacked. No, please.

Just get me out of here now. It's all right. It's over.

What happened? They must still be inside.

There were, I think, two of them. One of them jumped on my hood.

There was a big face. I didn't get a really good... Nothing happened.

What?

It was my fault. All they did was chase me. That's all.

Wait a minute... I'm off duty. Unless you want to file a complaint...

No, I don't want to file any complaint. Don't you want to tell...

No, could you please just take me home? Okay?

Please? Just get me home? Ticket.

Here. Here. I got it.

Here, here, here, here, here. No, I've got it.

No, no, no. Here, here. Now go.

That's a 20. It's okay. It's okay.

Would you raise the thing, please?

It's okay. It's okay.

Shit.

Thank you.

You're upset.

Would you like a cigarette?

No, those things kill you.

Yeah. Nothing turns out the way you planned, does it?

That's for sure.

If you hadn't come along, I don't know what...

Just get me home, okay?

Where do you live?

Where do we go?

The marina.

My name is Ed. Ed Okin.

Listen, Ed, if there's anyway I can thank you...

Oh, I'm still not sure what happened. Neither am I.

Why didn’t you want to go to the police? Pull over.

Huh? Here? Pull over. I'm gonna be sick.


Are you okay?

Mm-hmm.

Did you know those guys?

No.

Did they take anything?

No suitcase? No. Please don't ask me anything now, okay?

You mind if I ask your name?

Diana.

Like Princess Diana.

Is that your boat? No, it belongs to a friend.

I'll be just a second, okay?

Larry?

Anyone aboard?

Diana.

You're not supposed to come here anymore.

Larry, I'm sort of in trouble.

Let me just stay here tonight, okay?

Jack won’t know anything about it. I promise.

You no longer have the use of this boat.

I must still have some clothes on board. Let me shower and change.

Can I at least use the phone, please, Larry?

The man says you no longer exist.

I'm in trouble, Larry.

You're a pig, Larry.

Good night, Diana.

Is everything okay?

Could you take me to Hollywood?

Just a ride to Hollywood, okay?

I've got nowhere else to go.

Now you take off your shirt.

Now take off your pants.


Would you walk me up? You can't leave it there.

Everybody parks in the alley. It's all right.

They'll tow you away. Don't worry about it.


Hey!

Come in. No, I'd better be going.

No. No, not yet.

Just for a minute? No, I've gotta... go get some sleep.

Just let me get the lights on, okay?

I'm sorry. I guess I'm still just a little bit freaked out.

Make yourself at home.


Cute.

Is this your apartment?

Uh, well, no. Actually, it's my brother's place.

I'm staying here temporarily.

Did you check the refrigerator? No, no, no.

I, uh... I've got to be... shoving off.

No, wait. Please.

I really don't want to be alone.

Let me make a call, get myself organized.

Okay. Thanks.


Oh, fuck it.

Don't go away. I'll be right out.

Yes.

Well, it's an emergency.

Do you know where she can be reached?

Oh, just a second.

Hello. Christie.

Di, where have you been? What's happening?

Uh, listen, I'm kind of in the middle of a real bad situation.

Me too. We're gonna be out here all night.

Can I come over? Now? Let me talk to Bud.

Chris, look, I need a friend. It's serious.

Yeah, come on over. I'll leave a drive-on for you. Thanks.

Open the fuckin' door! Open up, you bitch!

Friend of yours? Who's in there? Diana!

Who's this? Looks like a narc.

He's a friend. She makes friends so easily.

What is your problem? Hey! I work for my money, and so does he.

Nobody gives me a fuckin' thing, and I pay my bills!

Are you her brother? Yeah. So what?

What happened to my clothes? I tried to be careful.

Look, she had a terrible experience...

She is a terrible experience!

You fly off to Europe like you’re hot shit!

You promise... You promise, but you don't pay the rent.

They finally turned the phone off!

Do you know how much I had to come up with?

I had to borrow money from Don to pay the fuckin' rent!

Fine! I’ll pay you back! No problem!

Right, no problem. Don moved in. You're movin' out!

Charlie, lighten up!

You've been gone three weeks! You didn't even call me!

Okay, fine! Give me back my car keys.

I rented it to Artie.

Artie?

You get it back right now.

He drove it up to San Francisco.

That is a $55,000 car, Charlie.

Jack gave it to you. It didn't cost you anything.

Oh, Charlie.

You can't just kick her out on the street.

She's always got you.

We're going out. Don't be here when I get back.

Elvis wouldn't do what you're doing! And I knew him!

You didn't know him.

You fucked him maybe, but you didn't know him!

You drive a beige Toyota? Yes.

I thought so.

The cops towed it away. Can't be there.

The police towed it? You shouldn't have parked there.

Perfect.

Where you going? To get a taxi.

I've had enough excitement for one night. No, this is Los Angeles.

There aren't any taxis. I'll call one. I'll call one for you too.

There isn't time. I'm in a lot of trouble.

No, I'm in trouble now. It was my car they towed away.

I can get a car.

They could still be after me. Who could still be after you?

Do you know these guys? No! Just believe me. I need to get some place... where I can straighten this whole thing out. I have to find my car.

Please? Please stay with me a little longer?

I don't want to go out alone. This is too weird for me.

Whatever you want. What do you want? I'll pay you.

I'm too tired for all this. I don't need any more shit in my life right now.

I'm sorry.

They're here.

Not on foot. You say you can get a car? Yes.

Sure your brother won't mind?

Fuck him.


What are you doing?

You can come out now.

Who are those men? I don't know who they are exactly.

What does that mean? I was in Europe, and I brought something back.

That's what they want. Somehow they found out.

Drugs? No! I swear to God.

I'm getting out. This is too strange. No, listen to me.

I have something they want.

It's worth a great deal of money.

You want a date? What?

Do you want to party? No!

You want any ludes? Coke? Hash?

Acid? Grass? No, Thank you.

No? All right, no sweat.

Call me.

I don't know who those men are.

If you wanna get out, go ahead.

Get back, everybody! Let me go!

I want to see Detective Kalichek, and I mean now!

And... cut!

Did you like that one? That was fine. David!

I can make him more psychotic. It was fine. David!

Do they need all these people just to film a TV show?

Well, I appreciate all your help, Ed.

I'll get you to the phone, and you can call a taxi.

I'm fine now. Thanks, really.

Diana, where have you been?

God! Do you believe this?

Look at this.

I got three more lines. "Don't, please, don't"...

I've gotta talk to you. Sure. Oh, David.

Yeah? How much longer?

Twenty minutes, a half. Go get warm. All right. Okay.

Excuse me. Oh, uh, Chris, this is Ed.

Hi. Hello.

Let's go to my motor home. Uh, you should find a phone somewhere around here.

Very funny. Excuse me.


Oh... I'm fine.


Can I help you? No, thanks.

Amazing stuff.

What are you doing here?

I'm waiting for somebody. She's in there.

You know Christie? No, no, not really. We just met.

Uh-huh. Excuse me.

Bud? Yeah?

For the L.A. Times. This or this? They're both shit.

Thank you. You're welcome.

Christie... Hi, Di. Hi, Bud.

Christie, who's the clown hanging around in front of your trailer?

Oh, he's... He's with me, Bud. Oh, fine.

Christie, remember to act scared. This guy has a gun to your head.

I know the feeling. What?

Oh, nothing. You look beautiful, honey.

Oh, thanks, Bud.

Good to see you, Di.

You want a stick of gum? No, thanks.

You won't even ask him? I'd like to help you, but it's Bud's house.

You live there too.

Christie? We're all ready for you.

Okay, I'll be right there. Okay.

So will you hold on to these for me?

Sure. What is that?

It's a hidden pocket.

Thanks. For what?

Is there a phone I can use? Use the one in Bud's office.

He's on the set right now. I don't think he'll mind.

This won't take long.

Hello.

I'm sorry, I must speak to Jack.

Would you tell him it's Diana?

Miss Diana, whoever you are... I'm a friend of Jack's.

I don't give a good goddamn! If you call here again...

Whoever you are, you better not hang up on me this time.

This is his wife. Don't call back ever!

His wife.

What's she doing there?

His wife? She probably lives there.

Not for years. They barely speak.

Bizarre.

Go ahead.

I'm sorry, you folks are gonna have to leave now.

We're friends of Bud Herman's. Mr. Herman sent me over.

He wants you to leave now.

Fine. We're going.

What about my cab? I'll take you to your car.

Let's just get out of here.

Do you know where downtown they take the cars?

I've gotta get a hold of Hamid. Shit. Do you know where to go?

No, I don't know. I don't know what I'm doing. We're going to find my car.

Would you help me, please? Just a little more.

No! I've gotta go home. No more.

I've got problems of my own to deal with. How do you think I feel?

You're all I've got. Well, that's hard to believe.

You're tellin' me.

If you want any more help from me, I wanna know what's going on.

You wanna know what's going on? Yes.

All right. Have a seat.

Okay.

They killed him.

Killed who? Hasi.

"Hasi"?

In the parking lot. I... I was with him.

He was waiting for me. The stones were his.

We have to get the police. No, I can't. I smuggled them in.

What stones? Six perfect emeralds.

They're priceless.

They killed this guy for six emeralds?

How'd you get involved in all this?

The stones are from the scepter of an ancient Persian king.

Remember when the Shah fell and the royal family fled Iran?

The treasury was looted. Somebody got away with a good part of the crown jewels.

Hasi was "somebody's" cousin.

Um... he was gonna give me $25,000.

So I went to Zurich. I went to a vault.

Everything went fine. He met me at the airport.

Who killed Hasi? They wanted the stones.

If I lose the stones, I'm dead for sure.

The police can't help me.

I'm one of the bad guys.

Who were those men chasing you at the airport?

I don't know. I've got to make some kind of deal with them.

With who? That's what I have to find out.

I know they're all Iranians or Persians or something. I...

If they're on visas, they don't want trouble.

Well, this is kind of outside my field. Oh, Christ.

I can't get a hold of Jack. He would help me.

Who's Jack? He's a friend of mine.

Is he involved in this? Jack? No!

Jack doesn't need any more money.

I guess he doesn't need me anymore either.

Maybe if you explained to the police that you were doing a job...

That I'm a smuggler? No.

Okay, so now what?

I know someone else who could help me.

Would you help me get to him?

It's my only way out of this.

No.

You did it before at the airport.

I'm not sure what I did at the airport.

You saved my life.

They don't know who you are. Right now they don't know where I am.

Just stay with me for a little while longer.

How do you know you can trust me?

Because I know men.


No, wait a minute. Wait a minute.

What am I doing here? This is insane.

I'd do it myself, but I don't know who's there.

I promise I won't ask anything else.

This is awfully good, sir. I think you can feel very confident with that.

We'll just raise the shoulder a little, put a tuck in there. Good.

Excuse me, dear. We've all got homes to go to.

This is the phone number... to the pay phone in ladies' room.

Give it only to Hamid.

It's just straight up Rodeo? Yeah.

Oh! Wait. Uh, it's private.

You'll have to show this at the door.

"Jack Caper"?

Is he the one with the wife? Yeah, the one I can't reach.

Was that his boat? Yes.

Now go on. Okay.

After I talk to Hamid, I'll...

I'll pick you up right here in front of Tiffany's.

Good. Oh, here's the... ticket for the car.

Okay.

You okay?

Yeah, I'm just tired.


See what I mean?

Cards. Place your bets.

Thank you. Thank you very much, sir.

Player has eight. Place bets.

Number 12. Cards.

Bank has nine. Bank wins.

No more bets.

Place bets.

And may we have cards?

Bank has nine. Bank is the winner.

Place your bets, please. This is Mr. Williams, Mr. Moradi's personal assistant.

Yes, I have a very urgent message for Hamid Moradi.

I'll be glad to pass it on.

No, I have to speak to him personally. No way. He's not here.

They just said he was. He just left.

Cards.

It's from a friend of his, a close friend.

You talk to me straight or get your ass outta here.

I can tell you it's a matter of life and death.

I'll tell the rest to Mr. Moradi.

Place your bets. Coming out.

Follow me. No more bets.

Hey, hey, hey!

Hey, hey! You're no cop. I know that.

Who the fuck are you? What do you want?

I'm just trying to help somebody.

Listen, I don't need this shit.

Tell Mr. Moradi that one of his friends is in deep trouble.

I'm going now.

Hold on. I'll go get him.

Good evening.

Hi.

Good night.

Can you tell me how did this happen?

I don't know. Right now she's waiting for your call at this number.

All I know is she needs your help.

Have I ever lied to you?

Okay, but can we talk about it?

Listen, Bernie, I'll call you back.

Hamid?

Just a moment, Diana.


No! Don't!

Wait!

Don't shoot!


You're very good.

You're really very good.

I'm amazed we've not met before.

I beg your pardon?

I've been watching you since you left Caper's yacht.

Very impressive.

I am?

Stop performing now, Ed.

If that's your name.

I don't know what you're talking about.

Okay. I represent Monsieur Melville, and I can assure you that he can be... far more reasonable than the SAVAK.

"The SAVAK"? The Shah's Secret Police.

Death Squad.

Iranian Gestapo.

Shaheen's boys.

"Shaheen's boys"? I like you, Ed.

I do like you. You're very good.

The stones.

What?

Where are the stones?

I can't help you.

We do understand each other, don't we?

Oh... I don't know.

Very good. Very impressive.

I'm sure we'll chat again.

Can I help you, sir?

I think you just did.

Are you a guest at the hotel? No.

I'm waiting for someone to pick me up.

Who would that be? Uh... My wife.

Are you aware, sir, that it's almost 3:30 in the morning?

Really? No, is it that late?

May I see some identification?

Is my husband giving you any trouble, Officers?

Diana, this guy put a gun in my mouth.

Are you sure he was English? You've never heard of this Frenchman?

I don't know a Frenchman.

Uh-huh. Where are the stones?

The stones are safe. It's all right.

The stones are safe. What about us? Are we safe?

Hamid said he'd take care of everything.


Hi, Jimmy. Hey, beautiful lady.

What's happening? Mr. Moradi in?

Yeah. The man's expecting you. I'll be right up.

Well, okay.

Good luck.

Oh, Ed, I don't know what to say.

It's been, uh... an experience.

I can't even give you a number. I don't know where I'll be.

Yeah, well, it's probably better the less I know.

Yeah. Don't say a word to anyone.

Nobody would believe it anyway.

I've, uh, got some cash.

Swiss francs. It's not that much.

Oh, no, no, no.

No, really, take it. No, absolutely not.


Be careful, okay?

Good-bye, Ed.

Think I can get a cab at this hour?

I hope she'll be okay. Something wrong?

Yeah, I forgot to give her something. You can leave it with me.

No, I think I should give it to her myself.

Thank you.


Come on.

Hello?

Why don’t you hire yourself a keeper?

Hello?

Is anybody home?

I will take care of the girl, and you will take Wilbur back to the castle.

Understand? Yes, Master.

Anybody home? Sandra?

So, we meet again, Count Dracula.

Dracula? Yes, that's who he says you are.

Oh, my costume perhaps.

No. He thinks you're the real thing.

Uh-huh. Right out of MacDougal's House of Horrors.

What an odd hallucination.

The human mind is often inflamed with strange complexes.

I suggest you consult your physician, Mr. Talbert.

Take him along with you, please.

So there you are. I'm glad to see you've recovered.

I didn't expect to see you here, Doctor. Sandra insisted I come.

No!

No!

No!

Now, where'd he go? Joan? Wilbur?

No! There he is. Wilbur, have you seen Joan?

No.

Joan!


Diana?

Joan, Joan, come on. We gotta get outta here!

Please, give me a little ether.

You won't need it. You won't feel a thing.

Oh, my God.

Not a sound.

Oh, boy, am I glad to see you.

Get me off here.

What are you lookin' out the window for?

Is somebody else comin' after me?

Let's not do anything rash, Ed.

You son of a bitch!

Let go of my hand, Ed.


It's all right! He's a nice dog!


Hi, I'm Pete Ellis, the Dodge dealer.

You know, there's only one way to sell used cars.

How about this? For3,995, an '81 Impala wagon.

Pete Ellis Dodge is known for vans and van conversions.

Over 150 new and used in stock, like this '79 Chevy van.

Where are we going? Away from here!

Hey! Hey!

Hey! Stop! Stop! Help! Help!

Oh!

What's the matter with you people? Crazy?

Fuck this!


What are you doing? Shut up! Be quiet!


Get the fuck outta my cab!


Thanks, Amy. Could we have some more coffee, please?

Sure.

This works, huh? Well, it always has.

You're right. I feel better.

I think I'll need two.

What are we gonna do?

Go to the police.

Thank you.

And tell them what?

How would you explain what you were doing up in Hamid's penthouse?

I was worried about you.

Some woman who jumps into your car at the airport?

That's the truth.

Well, the truth will put me in jail.

We should try to see Jack. Jack Caper?

Yes, the one with the boat. The one with the wife?

He's a very rich man.

I was his mistress.

I, um, I was modeling and, uh, t-trying to, you know, make it as an actress.

Mostly, I hung out a lot.

I met Jack at a party.

We went to Europe together for fun, and it just sort of evolved.

He gave me an apartment in Westwood, and, um, credit cards, my Porsche.

It was easy. It was nice.

How long? Five years.

Five years? You must have been 16.

I'm not as young as I look.

About six months ago, I get this call from his lawyer.

I had to move out. My credit cards were canceled.

He let me keep the Porsche.

What happened? I don't know.

He won't talk to me.

What about you? What do you do?

I work for Communtronics. A recording studio?

I'm an aerospace engineer.

Really? Mm-hmm.

That sounds fascinating. Does it really?

Well, yeah, sort of.

What were you doing at the airport?

It's kind of hard to explain. Try me.

I can't sleep.

So you went to the airport?

My life isn't working out somehow.

So you went to the airport?

My wife is unfaithful to me.

Oh. Your wife's having an affair.

That makes it sound romantic.

Well, maybe it is. Thank you.

Well, maybe it is. Thank you.

Sorry.


Well?

Let's make it on the beach. Bud, it's too cold.

It's cold, my ass. I'll buy you a new coat.

Get outta here.

Hi, Moe. Hi, Larry. Hi, Curly.

I thought you were gonna feed the birds. You said you'd feed them.

Carlotta was supposed to, but she's off this week.

You've got to feed the birds. Don't make me feed the birds.

I'm afraid of them. You're afraid of everything.

They're too loud, Bud. They're loud because they're hungry.

Ooh. I feel stupid in this outfit.

You may feel stupid, but you look sensational.

Do I have to wear the dumb sash?

Oblige me. I'm gonna put this on video.

Mmm. Quiet, Moe!

It's 7:30 in the morning, for Chris sake.

Who the hell are you?

Won't you come in?

Holy shit. Charlie?


Oh, God, I hope Charlie's all right.

Where's my brother? Your brother is well.

Where is he? He's not here. He fled.

Now, if you'll come with us.

Do we have a choice? Very droll. Very amusing.


Hey, Diane, come here!

Help! Help!

We better call the police!


Colin Morris was a superb man.

He told me that you were also very good.

Colin Morris? The Englishman?

Yes, the Englishman. He worked for you?

Colin was my employee, yes.

What was your name, sir? When I give you the stones, you will let us go?

I hardly think so. I'll need you to appease Shaheen.

She'll want blood. Yours will do.


If you're not gonna let us go, why should I help you?

You're fond of Ed, yes?


Do you have any idea what they were looking for? No!

You never saw these guys... I told you five times!

I don't know what they were after!

Jesus Christ! Sir, this woman says she came... to pick up a coat from Mrs. Herman. We're not married!

Bud, what happened?

Where's Christie? She's not here. Okay, Diana?

You a friendlies. Herman's?

Uh, what's going on? I just came here to pick up my coat.

What coat? My, uh, my big down coat.

I loaned it to Christie. She told me to pick it up today.

There it is over there. Will you get her out of here?

Wait a second.

What the fuck are you clowns gonna do about this?

Bud... Good-bye, Diana.

All right, Mr. Herman, we know you're on probation for possession of cocaine.

I'm gonna ask you one more time. Do you know what they were looking for?

I don't fuckin' believe this.

I'm afraid I'm gonna have to get some information from you before I can let you go.

Oh, sure.

Would you just walk me to my car?

Sean, Jeff, come on, get out of the car.

These men work for me.

Ed.

Uh, Pierre, come on out and meet Sheriff...

Peterson. Sheriff Peterson.

Sheriff Peterson, this is my husband, Ed.

And this is our good friend, Pierre, from Paris.

Can't tell you how pleased I am to meet you.

I... Pierre doesn't speak English.

He's such a good cook though, who cares?

Well, it's nice to meet you all.

If you'll just... Oh, I'm sorry.

Um, my name is Mrs. Ed O-O... C-Cohen.

Uh, C-o-h-e-n.

Um, I live at 1234 Malibu Canyon Road.

Malibu, California.

And our number is 456-2199.

And our number is 456-2199.

That's fine.

We'll, uh, most likely be in touch with you within the next two days or so.

Oh, look at the time! Honey, we're going to be really late! Oh, you're right.

It was nice meeting you, Sheriff. Thank you so much.

Uh, Sean, Jeff, could you walk Pierre over to the Roberts' house?

We're so late as it is, and it's only a block from here.

See you later, Pierre. Bye, Sheriff.

So, uh, are you having... a nice time in America?


I know it's here somewhere. "Somewhere"?

Yeah, I had to use it once. I ruined a silk blouse.

Must have been awful for you.

There it is.

The only thing I can't handle is snakes.

At this point, a snake would be reassuring.

Now what?

Well... Well... the grounds are crawlin' with servants during the day.

We wait here till dark.

You're kidding. It's only noon.

Mmm.

Ah.

Try to rest. Get some sleep.

Sleep here? Diana...

I'm gonna try to grab a nap.

Diana?


You scared the shit outta me. It's dark.

I've been watching you sleep for nine hours. Can we go now?

Oh, boy, I really conked out. Yes, you did.

Mmm.

This thing's locked. No, it comes off.

Maybe it did once.

You must be stronger than you look.


Jack?

What's happened to you? They say my blood's gone bad on me.

I'm buying it by the case like champagne.

Are you, uh, in pain or...

I can't even get any interesting drugs.

It's good to see you, Peach.

I couldn't figure out what Joan was doing here. I had no idea.

After years of compulsive spending, she's finally... taking an interest in estate planning.

Did she tell you I called? When?

When?

Jack, I've been trying to get a hold of you for six months.

It's Joan.

That bitch. She's very thorough.

Who's this?

Oh, um, Ed Okin.

I got myself into trouble, and he's the only one I've been able to count on.

What is this? It's an orgy.

You're trespassing. Get them out.

If they won't leave, call the police! Larry, disregard that.

You are endangering his life! Get her out, Larry.

Whoever you are, or think you are, there have been a dozen just like you.

I'm sorry. I didn't mean to come here.

You better hurry and tell me the problem.

Hasi's dead. Hasi's dead?

Yeah. Hamid too. How?

Hasi sent me to Zurich to get some stones out of a safety box.

They were left to him and...

He needed money in a hurry, and he used you to get 'em into the country.

That little shit. People have been trying to kill me too.

Yeah, Larry told me about the men in the boat. Must be Shaheen.

Hasi's aunt? Did you ever meet her?

Hard as nails.

She's got a deal in escrow.

Major development downtown.

Escrow closes in a week, and she's gotta come up with a bundle.

She called me for a short-term loan, a big one, but, uh, I didn't need the headache.

She mentioned that she might take Hasi in as a partner, if he could raise enough cash.

She had to know about the stones.

Wait a minute. This is all about a real estate deal?

She can have them. I'll keep my mouth shut.

A real estate deal?

Honey, you know enough to get 'em locked up or deported.

My wife sells real estate. Not to mention blackmail and murder.

It's not just the stones anymore.

You're gonna have to negotiate with Shaheen. Negotiate?

Offer to sell her the stones. She'll understand that.

What about the Frenchman? What Frenchman?

Someone else who wants to kill us.

Well, whoever he is, he can't possibly be as dangerous as Shaheen.

What do we do?

Go around by my office. The number's on the Rolodex.

Shaheen Parvizi. Parvizi, right.

I'll just wait outside. Okay.

You get out of the country and start again.

This'll probably be the best thing that ever happened to you, Peach.

I thought you hated me.

Bye. I'll miss you.

Take care, Peach. I will.

Can we borrow a car?

Mr. Caper said take any car you want.

This is nice. The keys are inside.

Be careful, huh?

See you at the airport. Okay.

Banzai.

You've gotta go. Mrs. Caper is really pissed off.

Which one is Mrs. Caper's car?


I'm not armed.

Those are not for you.

Are they for me?


But only three. For good faith.

Whose good faith? Yours and mine.

Where are the other three? Diana's hiding them as we speak.

Where? - I don't know. I should believe that?

Can I help you?

Wherever they are right now, it'll be somewhere where they can be discovered by anyone... or destroyed, so we don't have much time.

Do you have the money?

At this bulk, Miss Bailey, I can give you a very good price.

Whatever it costs. You only get married once.

Only when she's sure about her safety, she'll call.

She'll tell you where they can be found. You'll never hear from her again.

Then you wait for the call with me as long as it takes.

No, she makes the call when we're reunited, when I'm safe too.

You expect me to believe you won't take the other half?

Good faith. We could've taken them all.

How do you know she has not already run away, left you behind with me?

I don't. It's a risk we'll both have to take.

This girl goes with anyone who takes care of her.

She gives herself away like a fool.

She has nothing of her own, only what's given or what she takes.

This is a foolish risk.

Right now there's really no choice.

For you maybe.

Aren't they beautiful?

Oh, yes. Gorgeous.

Mrs. Parvizi will be by to pick them up in a few hours.

All she wants is the money and no more trouble.

Who are you? That's all she wants.

Just what was promised her and her safety.

What about you? I'm just a friend.

A friend? Of Jack Caper's too?

You drive his car. What do you want?

She said she'd split the money with me.

All this risk for $ 12,500?

No. Please.

No, of course not. Then why?

The last thing you'd believe is anything close to the truth.

The truth is... I'm not sure I know.

Somebody had to help her. I happened to be in the wrong place at the right time.

How much did Melville offer? The French guy? We rejected his offer.

Twenty-five thousand dollars is nothing. I do not understand.

Okay, you give me the money in cash.

When I see Diana, we 'll call and tell you the location of the other three stones.

It's simple. Too simple.

Why? What is it? What's wrong with our plan?

There has to be a catch, a trick.

I do not trust your plan.

I think it's a very good plan.

Come on. Time's running out. Escrow is closing.

Did Jack Caper tell you that? Yes, that's right.

I'm Jack's son. His son?

Illegitimate. But some day it'll all be mine.

You and I might be doing business, going out to lunch.

All right, okay, fine. I'll tell you the truth.

Diana's CIA. I'm on Her Majesty's Secret Service. We've got the place surrounded.

I'm really from Immigration.

We thought you might have some illegal aliens working here.

What are you playing at? I apologize. I've been lying.

I'm actually the chairman of the committee to reelect the president.

I was hoping for a substantial contribution.

You are mad.

Now you don't know what to believe, do you?

Look, either you've already lost everything... or you have to take a chance on me.

Neither of us have much to lose.

If he's still there, you better let him go if you ever want to see those stones alive.

A-Again.

Ever.


I promise if I'm followed, I'll go straight to the police.

Besides, it might take every one of you to retrieve the stones.

They could be scattered all over the city.

When can we expect this call? When everyone's safe.


Mr. Oskovitz.

Mr. Frank Oskovitz, please go to the white courtesy telephone.

One minute, sir. One minute.

Aero Norte Flight 156 to Mexico City now boarding at Gate 53.


Boo. Great.

What are you doing? What are you doing? We'll miss the plane.

I have to make the call. Fuck 'em. We'll do it from Mexico.

No, no, no, no. It has to be done now. I want it over with.

You're crazy. The flower market downtown.

Yakamura Roses. It's waiting for you. It's in your name.

Wait! Wait!


Your atencio'n, por favor.

Ladies and gentlemen, mechanical difficulties necessitate our asking... all passengers to kindly deplane... and return temporarily to the boarding area.

Thank you for your cooperation, and our apologies for the delay.

I'm afraid all passengers have to get off the aircraft at this time.

You think we could wait it out in here? It's more comfortable than out there.

I'm very sorry, sir. Rules are rules.

...please go to a white courtesy telephone.

Miss Susan Dorgan, please meet your party at baggage area...

Look.

Now what happens?

What the fuck... Federal Agent! Everybody down!


This is ridiculous.

Big shot, huh? You got a gun. Now what?

Shithead. You.

Huh?

Maniac.

Let me ask you something. Maybe you can help me.

What's wrong with my life?

Why is my wife sleeping with someone else?

Why can't I sleep?


What are you doing?

Will somebody tell me what we're doing here?

Well, at least we're not dead.

Maybe we are, we just don't know it.

When you die, you don't go to a Ramada Inn. How do you know?

And, uh, what's happening here?

Sorry, Mrs. Parvizi, but you'll have to come with us.

Can we see you in here for a minute, please?

Are we under arrest or what?

I'd say you'd fall into the "or what" category.

Are you a policeman? I'm a federal agent. Feel better?

Will you gentlemen excuse us, please?


I don't know what's going down here, and I don't want to know.

All I know is that this money's clean, and I'm supposed to give it to you.

For what? Someone...

Someone very important must like you. Jack.

There's $750,000 right there.

All this money is for us?

Who you gonna tell?

You got 24 hours undisturbed. You're not to leave this room.

After that, you're on your own.

Do we Thank you or what? Follow the "or what" category.

Here is Cal Worthington and his dog, Spot.


Diana?


Excuse me. Did you see a woman with blonde hair and a red jacket?

She said, "No disturb." The blonde woman?

The lady. You saw her?

Si. Yesterday. When?

What?

Clean your room now?

Can I have a ride to the airport?
