Seeking Justice (2011) Script

facebook.com/sazu489 Are you wasting my time, Bourdette?

Are you wasting my time?

If they find out I'm talking to you, they'll they'll kill me.

Tell me how it works.

No, this is... this is wrong. This is insane. Whoa, whoa.

You're doing the right thing the brave thing. Please sit down.

What does the hungry rabbit jumps mean?


Stop!


Thank you.

Happy anniversary. Happy anniversary.

So where are we five years from now?

Right here at the Lafitte Hotel except we have a babysitter at home.

I like that.

Me too. A babysitter blond, about 19 Swedish and he's very handsome.

Don't fuck with me.

Plunge to his death today off the roof of a parking structure on Burgundy Street.

We're going live to the scene. It's where I parked my car.

Joining me is Lieutenant Durgan with the NOPD.

You think we have a murder victim here?

I'm not gonna comment at this time but I will tell you that NOPD is gonna do everything in its power to get to the bottom of this. Yeah, right, another unsolved case.

I know what's happening. It's New Orleans.

The city's going in hell. Oh, come on, we love New Orleans.

Who dat?

Well, the city may be going to hell but we are going dancing.

That's right.


Hey, can I ask you something? Yeah.

How did you two meet?

I'll bet it was really juicy and romantic.

No, not really. I thought it was.

Well...

Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Stop. It's a "well"?

I know it's a "well".

Oh, he was sitting with all these kids like, 14-15 year olds.

Their first time at Symphony you could tell.

And they were actually listening. One or two of them.

You know I just thought it was incredible what he was doing for those kids.

Bullshit! Those, no, listen, those kids were juvenile delinquents.

They were supposed to be in detention and Will was supposed to supervise but instead this son of a bitch uses his own hard-earned cash to take them to a concert.

They are my students. Of course, you do.

Some bad ass kids.

Oh, it's not "Ow!". It's Aaaw!


What? ...What? Close your eyes.

Where are you going?

Don't look at me.

Come back. Close your eyes.

Close your eyes. Tight.

Okay.

Put out your hands.

What are you going to do?

Unspeakable things.

Happy anniversary.

Oh...

It's beautiful.

I didn't think you've gotten me anything.

Of course, I got you something.

They're little rubies.

Thank you.

I love you.

One at a time, please. One at a time.

Phone, beepers, knives, guns. If it rings hand it.

Hand over the phone, Edwin.

What phone? I'm clean. And the beeping is?

Thank you. Mr. Will. Mr. Jimmy.

Hey, are we still on for tonight? You're going down.

Keep dreaming.

Remember if your phone to school, your parents...

The expense of spirit in a waste of shame is lust in action.

And till action, lust is perjured murderous, bloody, full of blame savage, extreme, rude, cruel, not to trust.

You see what Shakespeare's doing here? He's using words to create emotions.

What kind of words are these?

They're violent words. And why is this important?

Because when you feel angry, when you wanna punch somebody in the face you put it on paper instead.

You find words that evoke emotions in you and you do something positive with it.

Edwin.

I could have sworn I saw the principal take the phone from you this morning.

Guess what?

If you applied yourself half as much to class as you do to scamming the school you could accomplish anything.


Ready to suffer?

Bring it on.


Thank you. I'll see you. / I'll see you.

I'm this way.

Goodnight. Bye. / Bye.


Bitch, huh?

Get in!

Really.

Check mate and mate, mate.

I didn't see that coming.

Yo, your problem, my man, is you play it too safe.

You gotta take some chances, you know, play not to lose.

Pretty much ensures defeat.

Set 'em up, asshole.

All right, good play. All right.

Goodnight, Jimmy. Goodnight.

I'm here to see Laura Gerard. I'm her husband.

Mr. Gerard, if you would follow me.

I've been caring for your wife ever since she came in.

We've be keeping her pretty sedated on pain medication.

She has several deep lacerations, internal bleeding.

We're keeping a close watch on her.

Lieutenant Richards, NOPD.

She gave us description.

We're working up a composite likeness. We're gonna get there.

Could you all give me a moment with my wife? Please?


I'm sorry.

I'm sorry.

I wanted to her to come out with us.

Hey, Will.

I'm so sorry.

The son of the bitch who did this to Laura they're gonna find him.

Go home, Jimmy. It's late.

I'll be all right. Anything you need, man, okay?

Anything. You just call me. Thanks.

Close your own eyes. Tight.

Thank you.


I'm sorry to hear about your wife.

Sounds terrible.

Laura, right? Is she okay?

Are you with the police? No.

No, but I, um... a couple of years ago, I experienced something similar.

So it's probably what you're going through right now.

You did? Yeah.

The man who raped your wife, he was, uh... he was paroled three weeks ago.

You know who did this?

He's done it before, he'll do it again.

If you want... we can take care of him for you.

Take care of who? What do you mean arrest him?

Uh, well, if we hand him over to the police it'll take at least six months for DNA tests to be completed.

Ultimately there would be a trial which your wife assuming she didn't drop the charges would be... dragged through this nightmare over and over.

She'll be in court. She'll be questioned by the lawyers.

And even if the DA gets a conviction which is not guaranteed the rapist can serve as little as 11 months you know which is half the time you get for tax evasion.

Who are you?

I'm Simon.

I represent an organization that, uh... that deals with people.

Like the man that raped your wife we would very much like to take care of him for you.

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

You know what I'm talking about.

This wouldn't cost you anything financially.

I mean if you did want us to deal with this, uh we may ask a favor of you at some point in the future.

Look after somebody for a couple of hours or break a security camera, make a phone call or just something that would help us out.

You... you know where he is?

We do but we have a time issue so, uh, we would have to... get an answer from you pretty quickly.

Listen.

We're just a few citizens who are seeking justice.

You know we love the city. We're tired of watching it go to hell.

No.

No.

Okay. That's okay. You take care.

Wait.

There's a row of vending machines in the Oncology Department cafeteria.

If you want this to happen, select the Forever Bar.

Buy two of them, okay? Two of them.

And, Mr. Gerard, we never spoke.

You never met me. Okay?

You do not repeat this conversation to anybody.


So, you got the healthy ones, huh? Excuse me?

I just figured if you're going to have a treat you should have something that's worth it, huh?


Hey. Cool, man.

It's all right.

What the fuck...?

What do you want?

You raped a woman tonight.

Your wife?

I have no wife. I don't know who she is.

My wife was murdered three months ago by some scumbag just like you.

Yeah. Yeah.


Kirksey Funeral Homes.

The hungry rabbit jumps.

Mr. Gerard?

Mr. Gerard? Yes.

We need you to sign a few more insurance forms, please.


I talked to the police this morning.

They found the rapist.

He's dead.

Committed suicide.


We'll find a way to get over this together.

I know.

I'm sorry. No.

Don't say that.

It's just hard.

Sweetheart, that man is gone.

I want a new lock on the door. Okay.

And bars on the windows.


Will?

Yeah, just me.

Did you lock the door? Doors locked.

I sound like a crazy person.

No, you sound like a person who's getting over something difficult.

I wanna buy a gun.

We're not keeping a gun in this house. No guns.

All right. If your stance is not stable you're not gonna be stable.

Remember feet shoulder-width apart knees slightly bent.

Lean forward at the waist.

Bring the gun to your eyesight.

You got that front sight, rear sight.

Squeeze the trigger.

There's your pepper spray.

Remember, squeeze the trigger.

Take care. Thanks.

Oh, on you I missed.

Well, you still have to make it. All right, side pocket. Oh, no. A lot of green, Laura.

A lot of green.

Oh, good game, honey. You're a pool shark.

You noticed.

All right, let's go again. I'll give you a chance to even the score.

All right, I'll rack 'em, you grab drinks. Fine. Good idea.

Hello?

Will? Come outside. I need to talk to you.

Who is this? It's Simon. I have to talk to you.

Come outside.

Just tell Laura, it's your sister.

Hello? You see the store on the corner?

Yes. Go in there.

Now I want you to buy a pack of gum then come out the back entrance.

Have any gum? Yes.

How much is it? Dollar fifty.

Is that the back entrance? Yeah, through that.

Hey, Will, come on in. What do you want?

Just a quick talk. Relax. You're looking good.

So is your wife. I'm glad to see you guys are back on track.

What do you want to talk about?

What do you think?

There is a, uh, mailbox at the entrance of the zoo.

And we would like you to go there tomorrow after work and mail this at exactly 4:15.

What is it?

It's a letter to Santa Claus.

Santa Claus?

And then I'm even? Well, that's not up to me.

Well, who's it up to?

All I know is I need you to mail that

Where did you go?

Well, my sister called. It was too noisy in here so I had to step outside.

Are you okay? Yeah, everything's fine.

Fine. Play again? Double or nothing?

No. I'm real tired. Let's go.

Okay? Okay.


Yes?

You're in the mailbox? I am.

Open the letter.

Okay. Hold on.

Okay. Go to the zoo.

Pay for the ticket with cash and wait by the entrance.

If the woman and the girls show up, you follow them. If that man appears, and say, "The hungry rabbit jumps."

You got it? The hungry rabbit jumps.

That's right.

What does it mean? It means what it means.

Now, memorize the number and their pictures and tear up that sheet until it's confetti.

You got it?

Okay, good luck.


I wanna welcome you to the zoo and to our elephant show.

We have two elephants here in the Audobon Zoo both Asian females.

This is Jean.

She is 36 years old and she weighs 7600 pounds.

Anya is 45 and she's 10,400 pounds.

What we're gonna show you today are a few behaviors that the elephants know and things that we need to do daily to take a look at 'em to make sure they're healthy and doing well.


What you're looking at? I've seen bitch.

All right! All right. Nobody's looking at anybody.

Settle down. Come on. Don't touch me.

I'm not touching you, I'm guiding you.

All right. We need everybody to...

Hey, Will. You came into my classroom?

Why? I don't get this. No need to shout, Will. I'm right here.

I've done everything you asked the Santa Claus letter, the zoo... The man didn't show up?

No, I don't think so but, look, I'm finished.

Will, you've been very helpful and we appreciate it.

But what you've done is only part of it, okay?

We just need you to do one more thing. I think you made a mistake here.

I'm not cut out to the kind of activity.

Yeah? I hope you're right.

Will, a promise is a promise, okay? I'll be in touch.

Oh. Excuse me. Hey, now, my bad, brother.

It's all right. Oh.

You dropped something. No, it's not mine.

Oh, sure it is.

Hey, this isn't mine.


Will? Yeah?

We finished rehearsal early today. You wanna go out for dinner?

Uh, sure.

Hello. I assume you got the package.

Yes.

Okay, tomorrow morning you'll have an issue with your car and take the Number 7 Broad Street bus to school get off at the Earhart Boulevard stop.

You'll see a pedestrian ramp that goes down to the ground level.

Walczak takes the bus to work. He arrives about 8:15.

Wait for him on the ramp.

As he passes you're gonna bump him and knock him over the edge. It'll be easy.

There's a low rail. It's gonna look like a suicide.

Now, there's two security cameras that cover that spot.

But don't worry about them, they're both disabled.

When it's done, you call me. No, I am done.

Will... I followed that woman, those girls.

I'm done.

All you have to say is "the hungry rabbit jumps."

You got it? The hungry rabbit jumps.

What are you doing out here? I can't get reception inside.


What is it?

Does it have something to do with me?

I read that sometimes the partner of the victim has trouble readjusting.

Oh, God, no, no. We're fine.

Then what is it?

Will, whatever it is, you can tell me. It's nothing. I love you.


So take the Number 7 Broad Street bus to school get off at the Earhart Boulevard.

Walczak takes the bus to work. He arrives about 8:15.

You'll see a pedestrian ramp that goes down to the ground level.

It'll be easy. There's a low rail. It's gonna look like a suicide.


Hey, you're late. I'm sorry.

But you're never late.

Okay, I get it.

How many times do you want me to apologize?

And I wished that I had died and far into the night he crooned that tune.

The stars went out and so did the moon.

The singer stopped playing and went to bed while the weary blues echoed through his head.

He slept like a rock or man that's dead.

What happened? You backed out?

I told you I couldn't do it.

Will, you know what a child pornographer does.

He arranges for adult men to have sex with children in videotapes it.

I get it. He's the scum of the earth.

Needs to get what's coming to him.

But I'm not the guy to do it. I am not a killer.

Will, let's not forget what we did for you. I wasn't myself that night.

Nobody said anything in the agreement about killing anybody.

So get the hell out of my life.


Why would someone slash our tires?

But how did they even get into the garage area?

It wouldn't be all that difficult.

What's the matter?

Nothing.

But why are you acting so weird?

Why does somehow... Will?

Will Gerard? I thought it was you.

Simon Adams. We taught over Bartram together.

Remember? Right.

Hey, Simon. Laura, Will's wife.

So how's it going? Still fighting a good fight?

Yeah. Good.

I got out. I moved to Seattle. I'm just back consoling a friend. His, uh... his wife got murdered.

Oh, my god, that's awful. Yeah. Unbelievable. Really, uh, it really shouldn't have happened.

Well, would you like to join us, Simon, have a drink?

Sure, just for a moment. I, uh, I don't wanna intrude.

Don't tell me you're a teacher too, Laura? I'm a musician.

Nice. Love to hear you play. Simon.

Not to be rude but Laura and I were actually having a private meal together.

Of course. Yeah, I understand.

Nice to meet Laura.

It's funny how people come in and out of each others' lives.

Don't you think?

Call me, Will.

Take care, guys.

It's terrible about his friend's about his friend's wife being murdered.


What the hell are you doing?

Did you see my work bag?

It's right there.

Honey, I think I left something in the car. I'll be back right back.

Okay.


Kirksey Funeral Home.

Hello? Kirksey Funeral Home.

I want to talk to Simon. Is this Mr. Gerard?

Yes. Mr. Gerard, I know that it's a very tough time for you... but we here at Kirksey Funeral Home... No, no, no.

Want to make... Tell Simon to leave my wife the fuck alone.

Hey, man, do you realize somebody slashed your tires on the other side? Yeah, I know that. Thank you.

Jesus, all right, man. Sorry.

Will? Yeah. Are you all right?

Yes.

Where have you been? I told you I had to go down to the car.

Oh, I thought I heard you walking around.


What?

Nothing. Just watching you.

Laura, uh

I love you.

I love you too, honey. Okay.

I called the "triple A". They'll... be here this morning with the tires on.


Mr. Walczak, I need to speak with you.

Stop! Stop! Stop!

Stop!

Stop!

Please, I need a...

No!

No!


Hi. I'm gonna need your card and I'm gonna need the locking key of your wheel nuts.

Do you have it?

Good question.


Yes? Hello, Will.

Just wanted to thank you.

You did a helluva job. Walczak is dead.

And now you're done. Have a great life.

What's up, punk? Say something. Hey.

Hey!

Hey!

Come on, break it up! Come on.

Break it up! Hands off me, faggot!

I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Get off me, man.

Will, what's...?

Striking a student is a minimum three weeks suspension.

Three weeks.

What the hell are you thinking, Will?

You're home early.

Yeah, it was, uh half day.

Student conferences. That's funny because Jimmy called me to check on you.

What'd he say?

He said that you hit a student and got suspended.

Yeah, well that kid is, uh... he's just, uh, total mess. And that makes it right?

Thank you. Thank you, darling, for your support.

My support? Yes, your support.

Here.

Where did you get this?

Where did you get it?

I can't tell you that. You can't tell me.

I just...

I can't. I can't tell you all right?

It's not... I'm going to rehearsal.

Mahalia Jackson Theater, please.

Laura?

Mr. Gerard, I'm Detective Rudeski. This is Detective Green.

Sir, we have a warrant for your arrest for the murder of Alan Marsh.

Who?

Turn around, please, sir.

Who's Alan Marsh?

To the left.

Hand over your cellphone, please.

You're gonna hold this here. Stand up straight.

Go ahead. No, it's preposterous.

I'm a school teacher. I teach English at Rampart High.

I am not a murderer.

How do you know Alan Marsh? I don't.

I want you to talks a look at something.

That's you, right, Mr. Gerard?

Yes.

And here comes Alan Marsh.

Now, how do you know Mr. Marsh?

I don't. That's you again.

Man, you're clearly distressed. Right?

What happened down there?

There is another camera that shows the ramp under the freeway.

Good, good because that all proves I didn't kill him.

Unfortunately someone forgot to put the tape in the machine.

Empty, no tape.

What were you doing on that ramp?

Yeah, I took the bus to work.

Someone slashed my tires.

You can go and check if you like.

Let me show you something else.

Alan Marsh's cellphone.

Now what were you doing there at the zoo?

I never saw that man until the day he died.

I swear it.

Is he gonna write something bad about you?

What do you mean? Investigative journalists like to pry.

He is a journalist?

Look

why don't you walk us through what happened?

Will, here's the thing.

You tell us the truth. We can help each other.

I want a lawyer.

Will Gerard, no priors teaches high school English.

Married, no kids.

Well, only, I guess, semi-interesting thing... is his wife, Laura Gerard, was raped in September.

Why would he wanna kill Marsh? Uh, we're getting there, right?

You got anything connected with him and victim?

Yeah. Video of Gerard on the Marsh's phone.

It looks like Marsh has been following him.

Let me have a go at him.

You give us an hour?

He'll break soon, boss. I said I wanna go at him.

You got 23 unsolved up there on the board.

Work those.

Twenty two actually. Well, look again, it's 23.

Good afternoon, Mr. Gerard. I'm Lieutenant Durgan.

Let me ask you a few simple questions, just procedure. Nothing to worry about.

I wanna lawyer.

The day after Monday is...?

I want a lawyer.

You haven't been charged with anything, Mr. Gerard.

The day after Monday is...?

Tuesday.

My favorite color is...?

What the hell is this?

My favorite color is...?

My favorite color? Uh, purple.

Purple.

If a baby is unhappy, he...?

He cries.

The hungry rabbit?

Jumps.

The hungry rabbit jumps.

Got it.

Get up.

Put that on. I'm gonna leave the room.

Wait 10 seconds and get the fuck outta here.

And then what?

If you don't go now, you won't make it through the night.

They'll kill you and make it look like a suicide.

Shut the door behind you.


Hold on a sec?


Afternoon.

Lieutenant, you move Will Gerard to Holding?

No, he's still in three. I was just there. It's empty.

The fuck you're talking about? He's not in there.

What do you think he's hiding?

I don't know. I've never seen him like that before.

An affair?

No.

No, it's something worse than that.

Call him. Tell him, you want some answers, or you're not coming home.

I'll give you some privacy.

Homicide.

Who is this? Ma'am, this is Detective Rudeski.

Is this Will Gerard's wife?

Hey, it's Trudy. Leave a message and I'll call you back.

Trudy, it's Will.

I need you to do me a favor.

I need you to tell Laura in person, not on the phone.

Tell her I will try to meet her at rehearsal tomorrow.

Leave the corner now. Tell her, I'm...

Leave the corner. ...I'm okay.

All right, come on, buddy. You're going in.

Just sleep it off tonight. Let's go.

Come on. Get your body bag.


Hey, this is Alan Marsh. This is my website.

Click around on things you wanna look at have some fun.

You'll find my very byline my very second byline.

Hey, man.

You skipped school. They can kiss my ass.

Damn. You decide. You decide right there. Yeah.

Now you know vandalizing the school property is illegal, Edwin.

What you're doing here, Mr. G? I heard you got busted by the cops.

What did you do for, sucker punching a kid?

No.

Murder, first degree.

I'm sorry I hit it you, Edwin. I really am.

It's all right. Maybe I had it coming.

Can you do me a favor, Edwin?

I never saw you, Mr. G.

You never saw us.

Right.


Laura.

Will.

What the hell is happening?

What is and you're sure we can't go to the cops?

We tell them everything. Some of them are cops.

You can't stay at home. Go to Lafitte's Hotel, wait for me there. Use this call me. The number's in it.

Here. It's all I've got.

Take this.

Where it come from?

I was scared.

I should never have put us in this mess.

If they had asked me that night, I would have done the same thing.

Will, what are you gonna do?

Where you're gonna go? Cops.

Those were the same guys that came to our apartment.

You have to go. Go!

Mrs. Gerard.

What do you want now?

A little follow up. Has your husband tried to contact you, Mrs. Gerard?

No, he has not. I find that hard to believe.

Do you? You seemed a little tense.

Yeah, I'm a little tense, Detective.

In my situation, should I be relaxed?

I have rehearsal.

Marshy! Marshy!

Marshy! Marshy!

Nobody takes a story like you. You were the best.

But Jesus, Marshy, you could have picked a more dignified way to go out.

You escaped from a Chechen jail.

You survived your own divorce, for crying out loud.

Just barely.

And that piece you wrote about the music industry that was beautiful.

Gorgeous story. Marshy, here's to you.

You're the real deal. Amen, brother.

You redheaded, asshole!

Here, here! Here's a little music for Marshy.


We're having a toast to Marshy. Marshy!

And to our new best friend as long as he keeps buying.

Will. Will.

Marshy was a great guy, huh? He was one hell of a journalist.

A couple of weeks ago we had lunch and, uh weirdest thing happened. What's that, he paid?

No, he, uh, he tells me about the secret organization. Some... group that claims to hand out justice you know, when the justice system fails and...

He told you that? Oh, it's true.

They killed him, made it look like a suicide.

You better watch your back there, Will.

Because anybody associated with Marshy is a marked man.

And why do they want him dead? Because...

Joe, you tell him.

Because Alan Marsh... was an alien.

He was sent here as a scout to prepare for the invasion of earth.

So, Will you... you are now obligated to buy us another round.

Absolutely.

Augie!

Don't worry about it, Will. He's been telling that crazy story to everybody.

He went so far as even hiding his own research.

Where'd he hide it?

Well, that would be the $64-million question, wouldn't it?

Cheers.

Well, he was obsessed.

I mean he said he was about to make that all stuff public.

The truth is, I mean, Alan... he had some issues. Yeah, it got worse.

One of the sources got bumped off.

And after that, I don't know, man. He just he became like, uh...

Different man. Yeah.

Jumpy, paranoid, lying son of a bitch.

Just sort of like you, Will.

So what are you, a cop?

Next time you wanna come snooping around show your badge and don't pretend to be his friend.

Will.

Stop him! Hey, Will!

Will, come back. I wanna talk to you.

Go after him. Get in the car.


Go, get him.

He went over himself.

Get down. Get down below.

Will?

No need to run, Will.

I have something that I think you may want.

It's the tape from the security camera. I just wanna show you.

I have it right here.

Why don't you come out? I'll show it to you.

Come on, Will.

Will, come on out. It's very clear you didn't kill anybody.

I just want to sell it to you.

Will?

Hey!


Goddammit!

Mrs. Gerard...

I'm Detective Sims of the New Orleans Police Department.

Would you come with me, please?

Now what? Your husband, Mrs. Gerard.

We just found out some new information that indicates he's innocent.

You do?

We need your help to get him out of this mess. Come with me, please.

Of course.


So what's this new evidence?

Excuse me? You said there was new evidence.

We'll show you when we get down the station.


Man, mother fucker!


The wireless customer you are calling is not available.

Please try again later.


Hey!

In a hyphenated compound situation do you capitalize the second word?

Only if it's a noun and the words have equal weight like, "Homeland Security". If it's a participle modifying the first word then you better, uh... you better keep it lower case.

Huh, yeah, it makes sense. Thanks.

Edmund Burke. "A philosophical enquiry."

It is not what a lawyer tells me I may do but what humanity, reason, and justice tell me I ought to do.

There's a guy in the news room going through Alan Marsh's desk.

I've never seen him before.

Look.

Where'd he go? I'm telling you he was right there.


Eight sixty five, eight sixty five. Eight sixty five, Here we go 865. Be right back, sir.


Thank you, sir. By the way, this is a nice car.

Thank you.


Paris Truck Stop.

Paris Truck Stop.

Paris Truck Stop. Paris Truck Stop.

Twenty one and one Paris Road.

All right, let's try that.


I wonder if you could help me.

I worked for the New Orleans Post. And I'm looking a missing colleague.

I know he would come here to get gas and supplies.

Do you recognize him?

I've seen him. He goes fishing on the weekends.

He keeps his boat in one of those units over there.

Which unit?

22, I think it is. But I haven't seen him in a few days.

The truth is, uh well, he owes me quite a bit of money. Is there any way to get in that unit?

Well, uh, no, I don't have the keys.

I mean those storage units have nothing to do with me.

So there's no other possible way I can in there and get what's owed me?

Well, it looks like they're made out of some pretty cheap shit.

I saw some guy accidentally backed into one.

It went right through the door.

Really?

So he went right through it? Right through.

I really appreciate your understanding of my situation.

Well, we're all God's children.


Hey, good morning.


You know if they find out I'm talking to you, they're gonna kill me.

What does the hungry rabbit jumps mean?

It's not what a lawyer tells me I must do but it's what humanity, reason and justice tell me I ought to do.

Edmund Burke said it.

Hungry-Humanity. Rabbit-Reason.

Jumps-Justice. Humanity, reason, justice.

Well, it was just supposed to be the worst. You know rapists, murderers child molesters. But then...

Simon he started widening the net.

Anybody he designated as "unworthy of living"

Who's Simon?

He runs my cell. I don't know his real name.

Tell me about how your cell works. Uh, it's just handful of men.

Uh, Simon gives us our orders.

He gets his from higher up. I mean the idea is that if complications arise then the cell can be cut off without a threat to the organization.

We also use people who have made a deal with us who owes us a favor.

Hey, look I got into this because I was sick of seeing the city rot.

I wanted to help. I wanted to make it a livable place for my family my two little girls.

Okay? But now it's... it's wrong.

Simon's out of control and I have no way for talking anybody higher in the organization.

Oh, god.

What is it, Mr. Bourdette? I can't. This is wrong.

Whoa!

Mr. Bourdette?

November 3rd, this is Alan Marsh.


Will, Jesus, man, everybody's looking...

Christ, what the hell is going on? I know, Jimmy.

What the fuck do you know? I saw the pictures.

You and Simon.

You're part of this. Look, okay. Will, okay, listen to me, okay? I'm a part of the organization, okay?

I joined 15 years ago when my brother got killed.

They didn't even test the bastard. I had to do something so I'm sorry.

The fucking scumbag that raped Laura I wanted him crucified.

Who set me up for the murder of that reporter, huh?

Was it you, you fuck? I called Durgan told him to let you go. That was me.

What's Simon's real name?

Will, I can't tell you that.

You have no idea what this guy is capable of.

His name.

I'm your fucking friend. No!

You're Simon's friend. You tell me his fucking name.

What's his name?


Get out of the car! Get out of the car now!

Open the seatbelt. Get out of the car!

Okay.

Fuck you pedophile.

The hungry rabbit jumps.

The hungry rabbit jumps. The hungry rabbit jumps.

How long have you been following me?

Answer me!

Not long. Just from that house on Seaborne Street.

I was just told to wait for you there.

And if you turned up and I was to follow you and...

Why did you agree to kill me?

I owed him.

He killed the man who murdered my sister.

Simon?

What's his mobile number? It's in my cellphone.

Get up.

Get up! Don't kill me, please. Please don't kill...

Get up! Give me the phone.

Get outta here, Go!


What does hungry rabbit jumps mean?

"It's not what a lawyer tells me I must do..."

Yeah?

Eugene Cook head of the RJ Allen Group.

Will? You framed me.

You framed me for the murder of Alan Marsh.

I also know that you had Bourdette killed. Watch.

The hungry rabbit jumps mean...

"It's not what a lawyer tells me I must do but it's what..."

And there's more.

Very resourceful.

I want the security tape from the overpass.

The one that shows I didn't kill Marsh.

So I've got something you want and now it looks like you've got something I want.

We should trade.

Here's what's going to happen.

You're going to meet me at the Super dome five o'clock tonight.

You bring the tape.

Eugene Cook. There'll be a prepaid ticket in your name.

Go to your assigned seat and wait for me there.


Hey, Trudy, I need to talk to you. Can I come in?

Yeah, sure.

By hiding out, she is not helping Will.

And she may be charged with aiding and abetting a fugitive or even as an accessory to murder.

Do you... I'm sorry, Jimmy. I don't know.

She's not answering her cell. She's not returning my calls.

You're her best friend, right?

You know her better than maybe anyone else in the whole world.

If you were in her shoes, where would you go?

Will?

Who is it? Laura? Where's Jimmy?

How did you...? Can I come in?

Where's Will?

Will?

I'm here.

Where are you? Get up on your seat and head towards the concourse.

What? Get up and head toward the concourse.


Yeah? Go out on to the concourse.

You'll see a men's room. Go in.

Yeah?

Take a leak.

Yeah? Go to the hot-dog stand and buy yourself a hot-dog.

Having fun?

Look at you trying not to kill a child pornographer. He wasn't a child pornographer.

Oh, but you didn't know that.

You must be a good man, Will.

An endangered species.

But where is the actual security tape? Yeah?

Good. Sent me a picture.

It's with your wife.

This time Jimmy's done a good job. Now where's my DVD?

I don't have it on me.

I'll tell you where it is when I get my wife.

Well, she's in the abandoned mall next door.

Let's go see her.

You believe they haven't fixed this place up all these years after the hurricane?

Laura.

Sorry, buddy. You left me no choice.

Let her go.

Did you make copies of this thing?

No. Now that's good.

'Cause if you did, I'm gonna fly to Philly and find your sister and her two little kids and tell them a really scary bedtime story. You have what you want.

Please let her go.

What I do is so important to jeopardize. I'm sorry.

So you and Laura are not gonna walk outta here today.

You're insane.

What did you say?

I said I think you're sick.

On the contrary, I am very well.

You don't see it, do you?

The city and how close we are to absolute chaos?

Jimmy sees it. Don't you, Jimmy?

Sick, I'm not sick.

The sick ones are sitting on their fat, fucking asses eating and drinking and fucking themselves into a stupor.

Polluting the world without a second thought while it goes down the toilet.

Nobody wants to do the nasty work, Will.

You know the shit that we all just think about.

Most good citizens are just along for the ride and they fucking bitch and moan and complain about everything when it doesn't work out.

But not me.

Get it done.

Will!

What the fuck, Jimmy?

You promised not to hurt them!

We didn't get into this organization to kill innocent people.

Laura, run!

You're happy now?


Will!

Will!


So Jimmy's dead, huh?

Eugene Cook killed him.

Who killed Eugene Cook?

I did.

I don't think so.

Here's what happened.

Eugene Cook and Jimmy killed each other.

I don't even think you two were here.

Simple case of a dead man killing a dead man.

You don't suppose I could interest you in joining our organization.

No. You sure?

Well, if you have a change of heart you know where to find me, right?

Now, I think you two better get the hell outta here.

Lieutenant.

The story you just told us is that how it's going to be?

This is New Orleans.

Yeah, that's how it's gonna be.

Go on.

Breaking news, we're going live to Catherine James on the scene.

Detective, the bodies of four males were found shot in that abandoned mall.

Can you tell us what happened?

I'm not gonna comment in the middle of an ongoing investigation.

But I can tell you NOPD is gonna do everything in its power to get to the bottom of it.

In other news, prosecutors have dropped all charges against school teacher Will Gerard who was accused of murdering the New Orleans Post reporter Alan Marsh.

A security tape uncovered by the NOPD clearly proves that Gerard did not kill Alan Marsh and, in fact, was trying to defend himself when Marsh attacked him on the walkway under the Broad Street overpass.


This is for you. It's Marsh's research. It's just a start.

Thanks, Will.

He just scratched the surface and I thought someone should finish it.

I'll give it a look.

The hungry rabbit jumps, eh?
