[pleasant muzak on PA system]

There ya go.

Thanks a lot.

[shopping cart rattling]

[squealing feedback on PA system]

[Voiceover] Good evening, Walnut Lake shoppers.

The store will be closing in 15 minutes, so please make your final selection and bring them to the front of the store, and our cashier will be happy to check you out.

Thank you for shopping at Walnut Lake Market.

[cash register rattling]

Jen, how much is this? [Jennifer] Yeah?

[Jennifer] Uh, it's $1.89. [Cashier On Right]Tthanks.

[Jennifer] Sure, no problem. [Male Customer] Thank you.

[Cashier On Right] Jen?

Yeah?

Has Dave asked you out yet?

No, he's still seeing Carrie.

Uh-uh, I heard they broke up.

[Jennifer laughs]

Uh, am I interrupting something?

Uh, you know, [Jennifer] No!

[Male Customer] Oh, well, I thought, you know.

I could hear everything. [Jennifer] No, no.

[Male Customer] You know, yeah.

Here's your bag, Mr. Abernathy.

You got this ready now? [Mr. Abernathy] Oh, yeah.

[Jennifer] Wait, I don't want you to forget your plant here.

Oh, of course, thank you very much.

Oh! [groceries drop to the floor]

Good grief!

Oh, Mr. Abernathy, I am sorry about that!

Yeah, well I'm sorrier, discount the senior, nothing.

I don't know why, [mumbles to himself].

I don't even, excuse me.

Hold hands, you love birds!

[girls giggling]

Linda, I'm gonna go round up some carts.

Watch out for him in the parking lot.

[pleasant muzak]

[light banks turning off]

Thank you, have a good night.

Thank you.

[menacing musical accent]

Ha...

Long time, no see.

Craig.

How come you haven't returned my calls?

I haven't checked my answering machine in two days.

[Scoffs] Like I really can believe that.

You know, I got a gimp hand from writing you letter after letter, just hoping you'd write one back to me.

Craig, this is no time--

Then when is a good time, [violent slap against counter Jennifer, huh, a year from now, maybe two?

You don't know what I've been going through and what's worse is you don't even care.

Is there a problem, Jen?

Look, fuck off!

[bell ringing]

[Man With Glasses] Where are you going?

See what the trouble is.

Never once should those girls work that alarm properly.

Just finish looking over the contracts and check on the girls, then close the store.

Well, at least let me check out the window.

[Man With Glasses] Fine.

[Craig slaps counter violently]

It's $1.35 for the cigarettes.

Jennifer,

look, I've been thinking about you for a long time now.

Craig, I'm sorry about what happened, I really am, but as far as you and I are concerned, it's over and it's been over for a year now.

Shh, now listen to me.

I've kept it alive for a long time.

Well I haven't, and if you can't see why my telling you is not gonna make any difference--

[Craig] Jennifer, [Jennifer] Please, Craig!

[Jennifer] Now, I have to get back to work.

You owe me $1.35 for the cigarettes--

You owe me an explanation--

Well, you're not listening to me.

Listen Jennifer, [pounding percussion]

I've been waiting too long for this.

You're hurting me!

Leave her alone!

You look, get lost!

[menacing orchestral accent]

You're crazy!

[slapping punch]

Don't ever call me that!

[Man In Striped Shirt] What the hell's your problem, man?

[rack falling over]

[jagged, menacing orchestration]

[Linda] Stop it, make him stop!

[Jennifer] Cut it out! [Linda] Guys, stop fighting!

[Jennifer] Stop it, cut it out!

Stop it, you guys just stop fighting!

[Jennifer] Bill, just leave him alone!

[pounding timpani and menacing orchestration]

[thudding punches over lurching orchestration]

[scuffling between the men]

[thudding punch]

[thwacking kick]

[pounding, unsettling piano]

C'mon.

C'mon!

[Man In Apron] What the hell's goin' on?

[man moans over more frantic music]

[cans toppling and crashing to the floor]

[Man With Tie] Jennifer, call the police.

[Man In Striped Shirt] Did you hear that?

All right, all right.

All right, c'mon, now listen up!

Listen up, everybody, check out the store, OK, but be careful.

If ya find him, yell loud and clear, but stay away from him, you understand?

All right, let's go.

Shit!

[tense flurry of fluttering strings]

[toilet flushing]

[fluttering, uneasy strings]


Hi. [Voiceover] We're sorry.

[Voiceover] Please hold.

Don't, don't put me on hold!

[uneasy, fluttering strings]


[squeaking sneakers and thud of body down slide]

Jesus Christ, you scared the shit outta me!

What are you doin' working tonight?

Working.

I thought you were Craig. [Man With Glasses] Craig?

[Man On Right] Craig Peterson.

Craig Peterson, hey I remember him!

One time, we got into this fight, and I kicked his ass.

Yeah, yeah, we just got in a big fight with him up front of the store.

He's in here somewhere, so if you see 'im, keep your eyes peeled.

Now, tonight?

Tonight, now.

[Man With Glasses] [Chuckles] Great.

[Linda screams over jarring piano accent]

You ass, you practically scared me to death!

What, I'm sorry, I couldn't help it.

[Bill] Hey, what, what happened, did you see him?

Did you see him in here?

No, it's just Tim scaring me.

You are such a dick, Tim. [Bill] Jackass, come on!

[Man On Right] This is so typical of you, Tim.

[Bill] Quit screwing around, dammit, this is serious business!

You know, I, I think, I think I know where Craig might be hiding.

Where?

The attic, the attic! [Tim] The attic!

[Bill] Hey, shut up!

Up there where I caught you guys smokin' that wacky tobacky?

Aw, come on, Bub, let's check it out.

Me? [Bill] Yeah you.

[Bill] C'mon dammit!

You got me in trouble, what?

You wanna have a beer with me back here?

[Bill] Hey, I heard that, no beer!

Hey, help me find him!

[Tim] What?

[menacing and apprehensive strings]

I can't see nothin' up here but a whole buncha darkness.

Hey, gimme the flashlight.

[boards crack as Bill falls to the ground]

[Bill grumbling and moaning]

[Bub] Come on.

Ah, ah oh, my heart!

[Bub] Outstanding, Bill.

Well, if he's up there, he's gonna have a helluva time gettin' down.

[phone buzzing]

[ominous piano accent]

[Voiceover] Hello, police emergency services.

May I help you?

Thank God!

[Voiceover] Sergeant Andrews, may I help you?

It's Jennifer Ross and there's someone--

[Voiceover] Your name and location?

I, I told you, 2100--

[doors swing open aggressively]

[Voiceover] Are you in danger ma'am?

[phone clangs and slams down]

Now give me my change.

Are you kidding?

Does it look like I'm kidding?

[jingling coins]

[coins drop to the floor]

[men struggling over frantic orchestral accent]

[menacing accented bass tones]

Ha, you're done!

Right, now you listen and you listen good.

If I ever catch you around here anymore, you're gonna have more to deal with than the police.

You're gonna deal with me.

You understand, you better hope that the cops get you before I do.

Bill, unlock the door.

Come on! [Craig spits aggressively]

[Man In Striped Shirt] Be gone with ya!

[men struggling]

[Man In Tie] Get goin'! [Bill] Goddammit!

[chattering between employees]

[Bill] Don't be a punk.

[Man In Striped Shirt] Get the hell outta here!

Roll the fuck off! [Tim] Beat it!

[menacing electronic music accent]

[Tim] Fuck.

Beat it.

[Man With Tie] Go back to work, c'mon.

[jangling, unsettling piano]

The police said that they'd send a squad car as soon as possible.

You gonna be all right, Jennifer?

Yeah, I'll be fine.

Well, I think we have enough excitement for one night.

[chuckles and affirmation from crowd]

Danny and I wanna congratulate y'all on the way you handled this situation this evening.

You, ya'll did a fine job.

Does this mean we get a raise?

Unfortunately, no.

As a matter of fact, tonight we start marking down everything in the store half price.

Why?

Bill and I are selling the store.

What? [collective gasp and shrugs]

Now, now calm down everybody, calm down!

Just hear the man out.

Well, Bill and I, we've agreed to sell the store to the city and your jobs will end about the first of next month.

However, however look, Bill and I want you all to know we appreciate the way [grumbling from the employees] that you've been loyal to us, and you'll find a nice bonus check from us as a little token of our appreciation.

And if any of you kids need any kind of a recommendation, you know we'll give you the best, best one in the world. [grumbling from the employees]

I'll be in the back.

Oh you guys, clean up this mess, OK?

OK.

And I just got a raise. [Man In Striped Shirt] Yeah.

[Bub] Jesus, I don't believe this.

Oh man, three years of seniority down the toilet.

[Tim] What about me, what about my job?

I had two weeks paid vacation comin' to me.

It's not so bad, I can get unemployment now.

[Tim] You're never working anyways.

[Dave] Get that straight.

You would say that. [laughing and chatter]

We shoulda joined the union.

Look, look, I'm not the one that wanted to sell the store, believe me.

I've been here for over 10 years.

I made this store my life.

Randy, I started out here as a butcher, just like you, and finally worked my way up to co-owner of this place.

It's my home away from home.

If that's so true, Bill, then why'd you give in to Danny?

I didn't.

Not voluntarily, mind you.

Aw hell, let me put it this way.

I own 49 percent of this place, he owns 51.

That about says it all.

Yeah, I'm gonna miss this ol' place.

Me too.

More than you'll ever know.

Now, does everybody know what they're doin' tonight?

[downbeat affirmation from employees]

Good, I gotta take a fastie.

[ominous electronic tones]

[clacking footsteps]

[rock music on Walkman]

Lost your job, Joe!

No wonder Danny's got the whole crew working tonight.

It is going to be a bitch changing all these prices!

Are you OK, Jen?

I've been better.

Aw, it's OK!

Know anybody who needs a new cashier?

[phone rings]

I'll get it.

See, opportunity calling right now.

Ha ha. [phone continues ringing]

Walnut Lake Market, this is Jennifer, hello?

Hello?

[Craig] Hello Jennifer. [ominous electronic music]

What do you want?

You'd think of anything to shove me away.

I called the police.

Am I supposed to be scared or what?

Leave me alone! [phone slams down]

[ominous electronic music]

[phone ringing]

Don't answer that.

This guy is a total creep!

You really went out with him?

For two months about a year ago.

That was the last time I saw him.

Where's he been?

Prison. [Linda] You're kidding!

[Jennifer] I wish I was.

[Linda] Why, what happened?

Craig took me to this bar, Dillon's, you know Dillon's.

And I told him I didn't want to see him anymore, and the bouncer came over and told Craig to settle down because Craig was starting a fight.

That's not surprising.

And when they pulled Craig off of the guy, he was dead.

[Linda] You mean he actually killed someone?

It was an accident, I guess.

That's just great, and now he's out.

[jarring orchestral accent]

[Linda sighs]

Felt like someone was watching me.

[phone ringing]

Not again!

You know, if Craig's gonna keep calling you, he's gonna have to take some abuse.

Look here, shithead, if you call here one more--

[Voiceover] Linda?

Oh, Teddy, sorry! [Voiceover] What's going on?

[Voiceover] That's no way to answer the phone.

No, yes. [Voiceover] What's goin' on?

[Voiceover] I want some beer.

What kind of beer?

[Voiceover] I dunno, bring home some Coronas OK.

[Voiceover] You're gonna be all right, arent' ya?

No, there's just this creep keeps calling here.

He's driving us nuts.

Yeah, he came in and he started a fight.

Yeah, OK, I'll tell ya about it when I get home.

[Voiceover] Do that.

OK, I'll talk to you later.

[Voiceover] Love you. [Linda] Bye.

[peppy rock music on Walkman]

[Joe sighs]

[price gun clattering]

[roller clanking and spinning]

This thing is not childproof, I'm sorry.

[Jennifer mumbles]

Hey Jen, lemme see that.

[bottle rattles and pops open]

Thanks, Dave.

You need anything else?

Mmm, yeah, a new job.

You and me both.

Listen, Saturday night I'm having a few people over.

Maybe you'd like to join us.

Are you still seeing Carrie?

Uh, well, no.

I'm sorry, I shouldn't have asked you that.

Oh, no that's OK.

Listen, how 'bout if we blow off everybody else and just you and I go out on Saturday?

I'd like that. [Dave] Yeah?

[Bill] Dave, you better get back to work.

Danny, ooh! [Jennifer chuckles]

Nice imitation there, Bill.

Dave, I want you to bring out all them cases of baked beans and pineapple.

I'm gonna make a display of that stuff.

You wanna make a display of both baked beans and pineapple?

Yep, and I think I'll call 'er my fartblossom special.

OK.

How many times have I told you not to ride on that damn thing?

Hey Jen, I'll pick you up around eight, it's a date.

OK.

You know, sometimes I think half the people in this damn store are half backwards, except for you.

You know, Jenny, my old buddy Jack Lehey's opening up a new place over at Nine Mile in Shiawassee.

I'll betcha he could use a good cashier.

I'll give ya his number if you'd like.

Yeah, that would be great.

Do you have any idea how much the starting pay would be?

Well, you'd have to take that up with Lehey, but I'm sure it'd be close to what you're gettin' now.

Thanks.

So you and Craig used to be friends?

[Bub] Yeah, he got me this job.

I was his best friend for awhile.

That's nothing to brag about.

Well, Craig used to be really quite cool, you know.

I don't know why he went nuts.

I, I figure it's because his old man died.

That musta really freaked him out.

After that, he started acting really weird.

Weird? [Bub] Yeah.

[Bub] He started stealing money from me, and then he needed more money to buy drugs, I mean like very serious drugs.

He was dealing them and then he became addicted, he started treating Jennifer like shit.

He and I got into it one night and I swear to God, if my brother hadn't hit him in the head repeatedly with a blender, he would've killed me.

A blender?

Yeah, a Hamilton Beach blender.

[shrieking feedback on PA system]

[Bill] Break time, sorry 'bout that, guys.

[sparse and haunting electronic music]

[Bill] What's wrong, they're good for ya!

[Dave] They're like, gross.

Where I grew up in Greasy back home, those are considered health food.

[Randy] Well, they never looked--

[Bub] Where's Linda? [Jennifer] Shopping.

[Bub] Yeah, that's right, she's working the early shift now.

Hey, the Produce Joe?

I told him it was lunch, I don't know where the hell he is.

The police haven't arrived yet.

The only time they show up is when you're speeding, then they're on your ass immediately.

Yeah, they're almost as slow as the fire department.

Hey, watch it, Dave.

I used to be a volunteer fireman.

[Dave] Yeah? [Bill] Yep.

[Bill] Gave 'er up though.

[Dave] Why, too dangerous?

Aw, not that it was too dangerous.

Mind you, we didn't always just put out fires.

A lot of times we get called out on accidents, and I'm here to tell ya, that last accident I was at was enough to make anybody give 'er up.

Why, what happened?

Not that I'm interested, but he's gonna tell us anyways.

Well, what happened was, we was all sittin' around the station one evening having dinner and we got this call that there'd been an accident out on Nine Mile in Middlevale.

So, we all dropped what we was eatin' and run out of the station.

Well, that is everybody except for goddamn Parker.

Took his hamburger right with 'im!

And the first thing we get to the scene is, the first thing we see is this headless corpse layin' right in the middle of the road, and they can't find the guy's head!

Oh, that's sick! [scattered laughter]

Guy lost his head.

So, Parker goes walkin' off down Nine Mile lookin' for the head, still eatin' his goddamn hamburger, so everybody, everybody just gets through.

They gets themselves composed a little bit so they can do somethin' constructive.

They walk between the engine and the squad where the accident was and the godawful putrescence was layin' there and everything, and here comes fuckin' Parker.

Walkin' down Nine Mile, swinging the head by the hair in one hand and his hamburger in the other, and he's still eatin' it!

[gasps and laughter from employees]

Then of course, needless to say, everybody just lost their cookies.

[giggling from employees]

[distant knocking]

What the hell was that?

Police, police! [knocking on door]

[Bill] Yeah, I'm comin', I'm comin'!

Hold on.

[turnstile rattling]

Hello and good evening.

Evening, I'm uh, Officer Dalton.

This is Officer Matthews. [Bill] Good evening.

[Matthews] How'd you do, sir.

I'm Bill Roberts, Jennifer here called you.

Hi.

How you doin', ma'am.

Uh, had any more trouble with that guy since we've talked?

Have we?

Well, he called a little while ago.

Well, did he make any threats or obscenities?

Nope.

Mm, we ran a check on this guy, um--

Craig Peterson.

Craig Peterson, yes.

Well, all we know is that he's out on parole now.

Well, if you see him around here again, why, don't hesitate to call and here's my card.

No, that's not my card.

That's my card, yeah [chuckles].

Well, as I said, don't hesitate to call.

Matthews?

Ya'll have a nice night.

[Jennifersnickers]

[keys jingling over rattling door]

[Dalton] Now you can't get in, you can't get out.

[Randy] Feel a lot safer already.

[playful guitar drowns out chatter from employees]

Let's get to it, c'mon.

Those guys couldn't catch a cold.

[playful guitar over blaring police siren]

[shopping cart rattling]

Hey, were the cops just here?

Yep.

Did they pick up Craig?

Nope, not yet.

Teddy is waiting for me at home and he hates it when I'm late.

Jen, your nose.

Here, I think I have a tissue.

Are you OK?

Oh.

[knife crunches through melon]

[Joe] OK.

I cut that right outta there, that's what I'm gonna do.

[peppy rock music on Walkman]

[Joe spits]

I still can't believe we've been losin' money consistently now for the past two years.

[spike ripping through paper]

Sad but true.

Well, Danny, what the hell d'you expect me to do?

Just sit around here and watch 'em bulldoze this place to the ground come the first of the month?

As long as that clears, they could turn this place into a porno shop for all I care.

[spike ripping through paper]

Now look, you're getting some cash outta the deal, you've looked over the contract, now sign it.

Danny, I can't--

Sign it.

All right, I've got a shitload of work to do.

Why don't you go downstairs and make sure those jokes aren't rippin' us off blind, hmm?

[pen scrawling]

Craig was staring at me in the window and Teddy called and Linda's not back yet--

Hey, hey, hey, just relax.

Look at yourself, you're shaking.

The police are gonna get Craig.

You're safe here with all of us.

Don't worry.

Tim, this isn't amusing, Tim.

Think you're gonna give ol' Bub another wedgie?

Well, you know, I really think not

'cause I had the foresight not to wear any underwear, Tim.

Very funny, you dick. [shattering glass]

What the fuck?

Tim, you're screwed Tim!

Everything's gonna be all right.

Everything's gonna be fine!

Everything's gonna be all right.

I tried to stop Craig in the back of the store, but the sonuvabitch knocked me out with my own hammer!

He killed everyone.

Shh, just calm down.

Just calm down, you're gonna be fine now.

You're gonna be safe.

Just wait here and I'll go call the police.

For the store.

Danny was always the big boss.

He always called the shots on every business deal until now.

I couldn't let that son of a bitch take this store away from me.

This store's my whole life!

I had to kill him!

The night crew had nothing to do with it!

Oh, I couldn't let anybody stop me [breathing heavily].

I guess I just got a little carried away [chuckles].

You're sick!

[Jennifer spits]

Don't you see?

I'm just crazy 'bout this store!

And I'm sorry, darlin'.

I truly am sorry, but there's gonna be one more killin' here tonight.

[Jennifer whimpering and screaming]

Jen, we're, shh!

Shh, now listen to me.

That son of a bitch Bill tried to set me up.

That's how come he didn't kill me.

Now, we were fighting, he knocked me out.

When I came to, I saw him kill Linda.

I tried to run after him, but he ran into the store and locked the doors before I could get him.

I even tried callin' the cops.

Now listen, I got in here through the bathroom window, and that's how we're gonna get out of here.
