Session 9 (2001) Script

They come in here, they're taking American jobs from American, hard-working American...

Those fucking idiots on this thing.

But I see that another man...

Think I have something here.

There you go. Know this?

Gordy?

You look tired, man.

You look beat.

Your turn to feed Emma?

No, well, she still has that, um... ear infection.

She's still got that? She had that at the christening.

She's still got it? Wow.

How's Wendy holding up?

Tired. Same as me.

You need anything, Gordon, you let me know, okay? I'm here.

Hang in there, man. You're gonna be fine, all right?

Uh-huh. No.

About 15 minutes. Yeah.

Okay, all right, I'll tell him right now.

That was, uh, Bill Griggs on the phone.

He says he's getting off the ramp. He'll be here in a minute.

Okay. Thank you. Thank you very much.

You know what? Can I ask you a quick question?

Yeah, sure.

When was the hospital actually closed? '85.

'85. Yeah.

Yeah, because you know I'm curious, because you know they got you and you got the... the firearm on.

And it's not like people are trying to get out, right?

No, no, not out, in!

You know, kids, delinquents, homeless.

Oh, yeah, a lot of patients ended up in the streets when this place closed down.

And some of them, they come back.

I found a half a dozen squatting up there last spring.

The patients come back?

Yeah, they come back. I mean, God knows why.

Wait till you see the place.

I mean, Jesus, I'd rather sleep in the street, personally.

But, then, you know, I'm not nuts. Obviously.

Hey, there he is. All right.

Good luck, fellas. Thanks.

We first in line? Nope.

Environmental Solutions, American Yankees were up here last week.

Wow. What was their bid?

Under the Yankees, bid was fast and low.

But that's the way Griggs likes them. He likes jobs fast, Gordon.

I like them safe, though. But we cannot gamble with this.

Gordon, you want me to talk to him?

Phil, I know what I'm doing, okay?

Okay?

Holy shit! Look at this.

Look at this.

1871, that's when she went up, gentlemen.

We called her the "Kirkbride Building", named after Dr. Thomas Kirkbride.

Well, it's a pretty simple layout really, you know?

If you consider a giant flying bat.

You know, the main staff building in the middle, the bat body.

And slanting off to each side are these, like, giant crooked bat wings.

You know, one for female patients, the other for male, you know?

A bat.

Yeah, believe it or not, this place is listed in the national historic register.

You know, that's why I can't tear it down. I'd love to, you know?

Only one-tenth of it is salvageable. But the land, the land is priceless.

You know, put up a Wal-Mart maybe, but the town manager wants to reclaim it, so...

Whoa! What the fuck is this?

Oh, what, are you a little scared, Phil?

This is hydrotherapy. Used to be cutting edge.

They'd soak the nut jobs in cold water.

I guess that was a way to chill 'em out, I don't know.

Or they'd give 'em a lobotomy.

Yeah, yeah, the pre-frontal lobotomy was perfected here at Danvers.

Sounds like you've done your homework.

Well, you know, my wife Elizabeth, she's the town historian.

She likes to keep me in the know.

Hey, there's a fantastic morgue in the basement where they do the post-mortem...

Bill, Bill, could you show us the problem areas?

Yeah. Sure, sure. Thank you.

Feed a fucking army in here!

Well, they did. It was a self-contained town.

Church, movie theater, bowling alley, you know?

Oh, there's a lovely cemetery up behind the machine shop.

No headstones, just numbers.

You really ought to check it out. Watch your step here.

This will become the municipal archives, my wife's department.

It was a dining area.

Is there gonna be a lot of foot traffic?

Well, yeah, it's like a library.

All these tiles will have to go. These are deadly.

They're loaded with asbestos, Bill. Really?

You know, the other bids didn't point that out.

Oh, they should have, man. It's standard.

All right, I'm gonna take you to the female wing now. Ward C.

It'll become Administration, Town Manager's office.

Department of Public Works. In other words, your office.

You better believe it!

Okay, each wing is made of four wards.

Wards A, B, C, and D.

Ward A, which I call the wing tip, is the farthest away from the staff building.

This is where they'd keep the extreme patients.

What do you mean, extreme?

Well, psychotic.

Keep the most dangerous ones furthest away, right?

Hey, you're so smart, Phil. Whoever said you weren't smart?

You know what they called Ward A? The snake pit.

Now, you follow these two down, they'll take you to C.

But I wouldn't advise walking on the floors.

There's water damage. How do we get over there?

Any of you guys scared of the dark? What?

Over here.

Hello, Gordon.

Gordy? It's me, man. Come on.

Survival rations.

Yeah, duck and cover, my friend.

Bend over and kiss your ass good-bye.

You know, this place was used as a fallout shelter.

To me, that is a weird idea.

All these ducts are gonna have to be wet-stripped. You see this?

Yeah.

That breaks off, dust gets into the east tunnels.

You're gonna pollinate the entire building.

Oh, Jesus, I wouldn't want that.

Believe me, you don't want that to happen.

No, you don't.

Gordon, let me lead. Hold on.

Jesus. Okay.

Yeah, this used to be a solarium. I call it the carpet-toned room.

Well, here we are, gentlemen, Danvers Town Hall.

Reclaiming the dark past to build a brighter future.

Something like that. Huh?

Crocidolite. Crocli... what?

Oh, Crocidolite. Crocidolite?

Yeah, worst kind. This is decaying, friable.

Uh, I'd say circa 1940s.

Really? Yeah.

So, what's the deal, then?

Well, if I were you, Bill, I would... I'd seal off the whole area.

Full poly, a couple of neg air machines, decon showers, the whole bit.

You know, OSHA won't let me start until you guys clean her up, and I got to get construction crews in here by Columbus Day. So...

You got a guesstimate on how long? Roughly? Ballpark? What?

These rooms, game room, tunnels, I would say...

Three weeks, minimum.

Three weeks.

Two. Two weeks.

Two weeks. Two weeks.

Yeah.

You guys Mack and Myer for Hire? What is it? Three or two?

Two. Two weeks.

Two weeks. He's the captain, right?

You better believe it.

Well, I guess you guys have seen enough, huh? Need anything else?

No. All right.

What's all this, Bill? Ah, they're punks.

Little motherfuckers come in, and they get high, boot scag, shoot guns.

Destructive little bastards. Shoot guns... at what? At what?

Well, hopefully, each other.

Hey Bill. What?

What is this?

Hey, Phil, what, are you checking in?

Don't go in there without your bathing suit.

Oh, yeah, this is... this is seclusion.

That's what they called the patients' rooms back then, seclusions.

It's some part of some therapy that was big in the '70s.

All these cut-outs and... stuff.

You know, art therapy, creative expression.

You know, it helped them with their... you know, like, self-esteem.

Yeah.

Helped them feel good about themselves and more at home. It was creepy, huh?

Shades of your childhood, huh?

Yeah, there's a picture of me at summer camp somewhere up here.

Huh. Wow.

What do you think was wrong with this one?

I don't know.

Watch out for the broken glass here.

Yeah.

Hey, you know, I got a little time. You want to check out that cemetery?

750 bodies buried there. It's like... Gentlemen, I'm... I'm sorry.

What, Phil? I left a bag. I got to go back.

Oh, you know where you're going? Yeah, middle of the bat wing, right?

You got it.

Okay, I'll see you down here. I'll be out!

Gum? No, thanks, man.

You know, I don't think I ever congratulated you and Wendy on your new addition.

Ah, thanks man. Thanks!

You know, I know how long you both...

Well, you know, we're just so happy for you and Elizabeth.

You wanna see her? Oh, yeah. Bring a picture?

I'll show you my baby. Aww.

Aww.

Yeah? Isn't she just a doll.

Emma. Oh, yeah!

Listen, I'll match Yankee's bid.

Well, this isn't how we normally do the bidding process.

I mean, the deadline's Friday, paperwork on my desk...

I know, I know. We'll be in on Monday, and we'll be out the following Monday.

I thought you said two weeks. One week. I'll do it in one week.

I've got four really good guys.

I'll hire another guy. One week, we're gone.

One week? One week.

That's fast. Uh-huh.

I'm good for it. You know I'm good for it.

I need the job.

I really need this job.


Roses? They're lovely!

What's the occasion, Gordon?


Genny is up and running, sir.

Take the mask off, Hank. Are the ACO levels safe, sir?

Take it off, dickhead.

Here's what I want you to do, okay?

I want you to go down to the tunnel, hang up those glove bags.

Tag those ducts we looked at this morning.

Use the green slime.

You mean red, right? Those ducts are hazards, Gordo.

What? Red, right?

Yeah, red.

Hey ya, Phil. Amy says hi.

Keep it up, dickhead.

Don't shoot the messenger, Phil. I'm just relaying information.

She says to me this morning, while we're laying in bed, to say hi to you.

Keep it up.

Yeah, I got it. That's the problem, right?

So dude, how long have you been working with my Uncle Gordon?

Five whole years. All right.

Was he a slave driver or what?

Well, Gordon's a very reasonable man. I'm the slave driver.

Got a couple of rules though. Safety first, get the job done, second.

And, uh, no drugs on the job, dude.

Woo-hoo! What the hell is that?

So, Mike, you gonna show me the ropes?

This the new guy? They call it Jeff.

It's Gordon's nephew.

Mikey didn't tell you about these? What?

You can't use these. Why not?

Rule one, music creates sonic vibrations.

Vibrations jiggle spooge dust into the air.

Gets into the air, it gets into your lungs.

This the kind of music you plan on listening to here, buddy?

Yeah. Yeah, yeah. You trying to kill us all?

Put it away or play something else, man.

Like Yanni or John Tesh or something, all right?

I'll see you guys at lunch. I'm going down deep.

Later.

Who's Yanni?

You know, Gordo, you finally landed us the perfect gig.

Next time someone says what we do is crazy, you just say, "Yeah, well, we work in an insane asylum."

You might actually want to be grateful, my man.

You're about to make some decent money.

Yeah, what? Five bucks an hour?

You didn't tell him? You tell him.

Okay. $10,000 bonus. Gordon arranged it with the town.

What's the catch?

We got to finish by the 13th.

The 13th? As in what, this Monday?

Come on, Gordo, you know this is at least a two-week job.

That's exactly right. So, we're gonna work our asses off.

So, what is it? Ten G's each?

If you don't like it Henry, I'll give you a ride to the airport right now.

Let it go, Phil.

What about Amy? You gonna take Amy to the airport?

She likes to travel.

I know she likes to travel... Hank!

Hey, guys! I got your keys for the gate.

Thanks, man.

So, what do you think, huh?

Fifteen years really does a number on a place.

You know, it's hard to believe there used to be over 2,400 patients here at one point.

Yeah, so why'd they close this place down?

Nearly all these places got closed down in the '80s.

Ya know, the budget cuts.

The Feds called it Deinstitutionalization.

So, they just dumped the people on the street?

Some. Some went to, like, homecare-type programs.

So, the loonies are outside in the real world, and here we are with the keys to the loony bin, boys.

Well, it wasn't just the budget cuts, you know.

What was it, then, Mike?

Patricia Willard scandal, 1984.

Patricia Willard?

I don't recall that.

Patricia Willard, she was committed here in the 1970s by her parents.

Manic depression, that sort of thing. Typical adolescent crap.

But in the 1980s, this new kind of therapy took off, Repressed Memory Therapy.

See, the shrinks figured that with these new techniques they designed, they could release... hidden memories of traumatic events in your life: rape, incest.

So Patricia, with the help of her doctors, recalls that when she was 10, her father raped her.

But not once, right? No, he'd do it three times a week.

And he didn't just rape her.

He came into her room at night wearing a black robe.

He'd take her and drive her to a wooded area where her grandparents and her mother were.

And they'd all have black robes on.

They'd take them off, and group orgies would ensue.

And then they bring out the newborn.

She was forced to watch, as her mother would cut this baby's heart out with a stone dagger.

She'd drink the blood, others would eat the flesh.

Her grandfather and father would fuck her repeatedly.

She was forced to have abortions, and they'd cook the aborted fetuses.

Enough! Huh?

This happened here? Oh, yeah. Everywhere.

Satanic Ritual Abuse Syndrome was big in the '80s.

Destroyed a lot of families.

Patricia was ready to sue hers. It was all set to go to trial, and...

What? She dropped the suit.

Why?

Well, her parents discovered a physical examination she'd undergone about a year prior.

Turns out she was a virgin.

None of it happened. So the family countersues. They win.

That, and the budget cuts.

And... poof.

So, Mike, is that story true? Yeah.

How do you know all that stuff, man?

My dad was a lawyer. He was on the case.

Aw, come on, Mike, don't be so humble.

His dad's the state attorney general, so you better watch your ass there, buddy.

Hank, leave it alone, will ya.

You were supposed to carry the torch too, right? Tufts Law School?

Hank, drop it.

What were you on there again, Mike? The one-year plan?

Need help with that? No, I'm fine, thank you.

Jesus! Tough weekend, boss?

No, I think I pulled a muscle or something.

Mike and I called you Saturday night to take you out to Molly's for a beer over the winning bid.

Aw, cheers, man, sorry and all. I was trying to catch up on some sleep.

Baby still got that ear thing? Oh, yeah.

So, Gordy, if we don't make Monday... Oh, Griggs likes jobs done fast.

No, I understand that. But if we lose this bonus?

We won't lose the bonus.

Listen, man, I know where this is leading, but, believe me, Jeff is young, okay, but he's not as stupid as he looks.

I'm not talking about Jeff.

We ran into Craig McManus on Saturday night.

I told him about the job, about the bonus.

He would leave Yankee and work for us in a second.

Now, he has more experience than Hank, and he gives a shit.

Phil, your job here is to keep things on track and to eliminate obstacles.

And that's what I'm trying to do, is to eliminate an obstacle.

Jesus, man. We're talking about Hank here.

Now, listen, if I thought he was a liability, I'd let you sack him.

As it happens, he's not.

And I don't agree. I don't care!

Now, let's finish the decon chamber. Jesus, Phil.

Fine.

All right. All right. Let's go, turn right, turn right.

Now, when you get it straight, you gotta bring the nose down.

Bring... Don't look at me. Look...

What are you, a lobotomy case?

Fuck you, man! I got it! Put the nose down!

Turn around! Jesus!

Nice job, Jeff! That wasn't me, man.

Yeah. Fuck you, dude.

Just, just wait there. What?

Just... hang on.

What the hell?

Huh?

Okay, go down and check the breaker box.

No, I can't do that.

Why?

I got nyctophobia.

What? Fear of the dark.

Okay. I'll go check the breaker box.

You... just try not to break anything, okay, mullet head?

Thanks, man.


Oh, damn!

Goddamn!

You okay? Yeah, it's fine.

Good first day, Gordo. Hm-mm.

Listen, Mike needs another hour. The genny carburetor's acting up.

Okay, but listen, I don't want anyone hanging around this place after dark.

Okay. No problem.

Good first day, guys.

It keeps up like this, we'll all be dead by Monday.

Hey, fuck you, Phil!

See you in the morning.


I know this is difficult, Mary.

And that's why we're here to help, okay?

I miss Peter.

I miss him so much!

Mary, I want you to try to remember what happened 22 years ago.

On Christmas night in Lowell.

That's where we grew up.

Yes. Can you tell me what happened that night in Lowell?

Nothing happened! Mary, something did happen.

That's why we have these sessions, to help you remember, so you can get better, okay?

No. No, I can't remember.

File note. Patient is showing extreme agitation.

She is putting her fingers in her mouth.

Mary... Mary?

Will you share a doll, Mr. Doctor?

Who am I speaking with?

Mary got a china doll from her mommy.

And we can't find it now.

No, Princess, I haven't seen it.

Maybe Billy knows where your china doll is.

Silly Billy!

Princess, tell me what happened on Christmas 22 years ago in Lowell.

We got presents.

Mary got a pretty china doll, and Peter got a big old knife.

Then what happened?

Mary's mommy and daddy went to sleep.

And then we played upstairs.

Peter turned off the lights and hid. And Mary tried to find him.

Who played upstairs, Princess?

Mary and Peter, and me and Billy, silly!

Has Billy told you what happened next?

Billy only tells me nice things, Mr. Doctor.

Like, that I'm pretty.

Princess, was Simon there that night?

Simon?

Ooh, I don't know any Simon.

Billy's never told you about Simon?

No.

I'm tired, Mr. Doctor.

Maybe Billy would like to talk now.

Billy's asleep, Mr. Doctor.

He's asleep.


You can hear me.

Genny's gassed up and running, sir.

Very good. Make sure she stays that way.

I don't want her dying on us.

Put your mask on, Princess.

Fuck off. I'm not your princess, dude.

What?

So, what's up with Phil and Hank?

What's up with Phil and Hank?

Hank stole Phil's girlfriend. It's a nightmare.

You don't want to get involved.

You especially don't want to get on Phil's bad side.

He'll give you the grunt work, all right?


1884.

1883. Fuck, yeah!


Free at last! Free at last!

Yo, Henry, come back.

Hank? Come back!

Uh, yeah, yeah, Hank here.

I want you with Jeff and Mike after lunch, so bring your gear up.

Yeah, all right. Hank out.


Gordo!

Got your wallet.

Nice grab. Okay, ladies, time to thank Uncle Gordy for lunch.

Thanks, Uncle Gordon!

Your turn tomorrow, Hank. Where's Mike?

The equipment room, looking for those lost cartridges.

Jesus, Phil!

I told you, I didn't want anyone wandering around here by themselves!

Okay, boss. It won't happen again, okay?

Do you got my scratch tickets?

Yeah, I got 'em right here, Bubba. I'm comin'.

Let's see, Hank, your scratch tickets.

There you go. There's one.

Oh, Phil, these are Jubilee. You know I play Blackjack.

Yeah, here's one for you, too. Hey, Phil... fuck you!

Mike, come in.

I can't talk anymore. I am too tired.

It appears Miss Hobbes is now entering a dissociative state, rubbing her eyes, appears to be switching to an alternate personality.

Uh, yeah, I'll be there in a minute.

Mary? Hello, sir.

Well, hello, Billy. How have you been?

Never better, sir.

Billy, where does the Princess live?

In the tongue. Why the tongue?

Because she's always talking, sir.

And where do you live, Billy?

I live in the eyes. You know that.

Remind me, though. Why the eyes?

Because I see everything, sir.

And where does Simon live, Billy?

Where does Simon live?

Hey, what's mortified pride?

Says here, three patients were committed in 1889 because of mortified pride.

Let me see that.

1889. Where'd you get this?

Under some boxes, man. It's fucking intense, some of the shit...

When Phil calls lunch, it means lunch. Understood?

Sorry, no cartridges. I gotta go pick some up at Grossman's.

Listen to this.

17 were committed due to disappointed expectations.

Henry, they're talking about you.

They would've committed your ass back then.

Hey, what do you have to do now to get committed?

Mortify someone's pride?

Simple.

You kill someone.

Nah, that won't get you committed. But it'll get you in jail.

If you get caught.

John Hinkley, temporary insanity.

He's not in jail. He's in a nut house. Right, Mike?

That defense never works.

Most people are cognizant of their actions when they murder.

Homicide implies a motive.

Oh... God, Mike.

How did you fail law school? You're good.

Yeah, what are you, dude? A lobotomy case?

Jeff, come on, man.

Hey! Hey! Mike!

Mike! Mike.

C'mon, I'm just fucking around, Gordo.

Don't hurt him! It's all right.

The Ice Pick method.

Insert a thin metal pipette into the orbital frontal cortex and enter the soft tissue of the frontal lobe.

A few simple smooth, up and down jerks to sever the lateral hypothalamus.

All resulting in a rapid reduction of stress for our little patient here.

Total time elapsed, two minutes. Only side effect?

Black eye. Recommended treatment...

Sunglasses.

Brilliant! Very good.

All right. Let's go back to work. Come on.

I wasn't kidding back there, man. You're smarter than this crap job.

You should be using your head, buddy.

Yeah, um, I gotta get a part from Gordon's van.

Make sure mullet head here knows how to operate that thing.

Hey, Mike, come on, don't forget this.

You know how to ride a lawn mower? Yeah.

Oh, then, you're golden. Basically the same thing.

So, I don't know.

Just push it in to that mid section there and just start over there, all right?

I'm gonna take a smoke break.

We just had a break.

Hey, Jeff!

What's up? You know what a whale is?

Yeah, I know what a whale is.

A whale is a big time gambler.

I got this buddy, right, he deals out at Foxwoods.

12 hours, and this whale has the house down 300 grand, right?

As this guy's leaving, takes his car keys, and drops them in my friend's pocket.

You know what they're for? What?

Porsche 911.

It's true, man, and that was the tip.

Fucking tip!

What's your point?

Just have an exit plan, dude.

If you stick with this job too long, it will mess you up, man.

It gets inside of you... the stress.

You see?

Already an itty bitty piece of this shit may have gotten into your lungs, man.

It incubates in your lungs, and tissue begins to grow around it like a... like a pearl.

Like a time bomb.

Time you hit 30... Boom!

You're drowning in your own lung fluid.

Look at you, you're not even wearing your mask now.

Hey, where's your mask? Me? Nah...

Nah, buddy, I've learned to sublimate my fear.

'Cause I got a fuckin' exit plan, man.

I have a way of dealing with the stress.

You think Mikey reads all those books for fun?

Nah, man, he's got an exit plan, let me tell you.

If stress gets too intense on this job, he'll bolt.

He's gonna go back, finish law school, pass the bar, get the big, juicy cases, make his dad proud.

That's his exit plan.

Phil, Jesus... Phil's got his stress reducer.

He's got his plan. I'm sure he'll tell you about it someday.

Then there's Uncle Gordo.

Hey, did you know if he didn't get this gig, he'd have to fold H.E.C.?

Yep. Man, he can't even have an exit plan.

Fiber has always been his life.

It was over there. It is here. Imagine that stress.

Hey, let me tell you something, buddy, you better hope, hope, you got some of Gordo's genes, though. 'Cause Gordo...

Jesus, Gordo is the Zen master of calm.

I've never seen old Gordo lose it.

I don't know, though, man.

The last few months, Gordo, I'm seein' some cracks.

Ya know, I worry.

Mikey knows what I'm talking about, right, Mikey?

He does have the new baby, ya know.

It should be the joy of his life, dude.

Hank, when you and Amy have a kid, you'll see how hard it is.

Me and Amy? A kid with Amy? Nah, I just fuck her to beat on Phil.

Hey, get off your ass. I want my bonus.


Hi, Wendy?

I know, but we need to talk.

Because we have to.

Would you let me finish? Would you...? Hello?


Baby needs a new pair of shoes.

Let's do this thing.

Silver.

Yeah, baby, gold, gold.

Fucking eyeballs. Jesus Christ!

They ought to be worth something. All right.


Yeah, baby, check that out.

What the fuck is that?


God!

Fucking birds!

Jesus.

Oh, damn.


So what's the verdict?

I'm getting nothing here. He's not even left his answering machine on.

You a...

You try Amy's yet? Do you know her number?

Okay, I'll try information.

No, fuck, give me the phone.

Huh?

I know the number, Gordon. Give me the phone!

Thank you.

Hi! Hi, it's me. Yeah, uh...

Wait... Wait a second. What?

What are you talking about?

When? When? Slow down. When did this happen?

Really?

No, no, no. No, no, no. No, no.

You hang in there. I'll call you back.

Well, our favorite piece of shit, Hank, went to Amy's last night, packed his car, told her that he found his meal ticket, and then bolted to Miami to Casino School.

That lucky fuck! And he probably scored on a scratch or something.

I warned her, didn't I? I fucking warned this bitch, didn't I?

She said that he left without saying anything?

Gordon, it's Hank. He's totally unreliable.

Mike, call McManus. Call Craig. See if he's still available.

Gordy?

Gordy, this is a blessing.

We replace this asshole, and we move forward.

What's the problem?

Something's not right here. Some...

What's the matter?

Who are those two guys you were talking to yesterday?

What guys? I saw ya.

Now, what were you talking about? What is this?

I'm asking you a question. What were you talking about?

Okay.

Okay.

Are you questioning my performance? I don't know. Should I be?

Mike, call McManus. Don't walk away from me!

Don't ever walk away from me!

You gonna hit me?


You think I'm doing a bad job, Mike?

No, you're doing fine.

This used to be a great deal.

Steady gigs, joking around, beers after work.

Hey, look! It says here, eight were committed for uncontrolled passion.

Then Emma came.

Don't look at me like that, man.

You know it's why we lost the last two gigs.

He's tired, and he overbid.

Gordon loves being a father. Yeah, now he does, now he loves it.

But it was never in his heart. This was Wendy's idea.

Look, Phil...

Just 'cause you say you don't want something, it doesn't mean you don't want it.

Now, six years ago I didn't want to be a lawyer, but now I'm thinkin' I might...

Wait! Wait! Who the fuck are you kidding?

You shuck fiber with us, in there, okay?

Look... That's not what I'm talking about.

I'm talking about... fatherhood is screwing this guy's head up, and it's fucking his job up.

At the very least, Mike, he should've canned Hank's ass six months ago, and you know it.

What are you looking at? Where you going, Mike?

I'm gonna go take a piss. You got 25!


Hello, Wendy?

Can we talk?

Wendy?

I wanna ask you something.

Can you forgive me?

Uncle Gordon!

Wendy?

Hello?

Gordon?

Sorry. Hey, man.

I didn't see you on the phone.

Sit down. Sit down. Thanks.

I just... I just came to...

Thank you for giving me this job, you know?

I mean, I want to let you know I'll bust my ass for you, okay?

I know that. I know that.

So, don't stress out, all right? Things will work out.

I'm here for you, and I'm gonna bust my ass, all right?

Yeah.

Family, man. Yeah.

So, was that Aunt Wendy? Yeah.

How's she doing? She's good.

She's, uh... tired, you know?

It's when...

Kids tire you out sometimes. Yeah, no, I know.

My dad's got the photos back from the christening.

Yeah?

Emma looks pretty pissed off. Yeah, she's pretty pissed.

Why are you crying, Mary?

I miss my family.

How come they don't visit, Doctor?

Mary, can you tell me how you got those scars on your chest?

How many times do I have to tell you?

I fell off my bike when I was a girl.

Is that what you remember, Mary?

Yes!

Now, can you tell me who the Princess is?

No idea. And who Billy is?

I don't know anyone named Billy.

Who is Simon, Mary? I have no idea who Simon is!

I am sick of this! Mary, calm down.

I just want to go back to my room! Mary?

Mary?

Mary is asleep, sir.

Billy, why won't you tell me what happened in Lowell.

I know you saw what happened.

You know perfectly well what happened, sir.

But Mary needs to know what happened, Billy.

She needs to remember. No!

Well, then, maybe Simon would like to tell me what happened.

He's asleep. Help me wake Simon.

No! We must wake up Simon.

I won't... scared! Billy, we have to wake up Simon.

You should take a shower, Gordon.

You shouldn't go home with that shit on you, man.

What's the stupidest thing you've ever done?

You mean, besides coming to work for you?

Uh... I would have to say...

I would have to say introducing Hank to Amy.

That was pretty fucking stupid. I wish I had that one back.

I wish I had that one back.

I hit Wendy.

What?

It was Friday night. I wanted to celebrate getting this job.

I had the flowers. I had the champagne.

I went into the kitchen. She was cooking pasta.

I wanted to kiss her.

She turned around, and before I knew it, there's a pot of boiling water all over my leg.

I don't know if it was the dog barking, I don't know if it was Emma crying, but I slapped her.

I hit my wife.

I love my wife.

It was an accident.

But I slapped her for it.

I've tried to talk to her on the phone, but she wouldn't listen.

Where are you staying?

A motel.

You don't tell the other guys about this.

Oh, come on, man.

You were right about Craig. You should give him a call.

You know, uh, they, uh, those kids, the other day...

I had a conversation with those fuckin' graffiti artists, and they will not be coming back our way again.

I spoke to 'em, I said, "If I see you again, I'm calling Security," so...

Anyway, so, that's taken care of, all right?

Okay.

Hang in there.

Take a shower.

Get that shit off of you.


Hello, Gordon.

Do you know who I am?

Roses? They're lovely!

What's the occasion, Gordon?

Not here, Gordon. Later.

Watch out!

Do it, Gordon!


Hey.

You're up early. Yeah.

Guess I wasn't the only one who couldn't sleep.

I got, uh, I got Craig coming in tomorrow. Okay?

You okay?

I want to go home.

I'm gonna go inside.

Okay?

I gotta go.

It's gonna get ugly.

Ah, Jesus Christ!

Jeff, what did you do? It wasn't me, man!

I'm gonna go check the breakers.

Mike!

What? Take a break with me.

I can't. I gotta go check the breakers. Let the kid do it.

Well, the kid can't. He's got nyctophobia.

Mike.

Okay, all right.

Fuck.

We got a problem. What?

We have a problem, and I want you to know that this is not easy for me.

Look at me. This is not easy for me, do you understand?

All right.

We need to talk about Gordon. What about him?

He needs to take some time off, Mike.

Why? Because he's becoming a liability.

I.. Phil, look, I can see why you're a little paranoid.

Can ya? Do you know that he hit his wife?

He hit Wendy, Mike.

Now, I've got Craig coming over tomorrow.

If Griggs hears about this, you understand what that means, right?

You want to lose this gig? You want to lose the bonus?

'Cause that's what's gonna happen.

So, what do we do?

Okay, you listen to me. You follow my lead.

You let me handle this, okay? I don't give a shit what happens.

Fuck! I'm in charge now.

So, what did he say?

It think it might happen Saturday. I don't...

Hey.

We were just talking about your nephew.

And how he's coming along. That sort of thing.

And how's he coming along?


Hank?

Yo, dude, hello!

Hank!

You're in some deep shit, you know that?

What are you doing here?

What am I doing here? What are you doing here?

Everyone thinks you're in Miami at that Casino School.

Fucking Gordon and Phil want your head, man!

So, dude, did you score on a scratch, or what?

What are you doing here?

Listen, I forgot something. I'll be back.

You know, um, he just needs a little motivation.

That's... pretty much it. Yeah.

What do you think, Phil?

Same, I think he's a little slow. But, uh...

With Hank gone and Craig coming on, we'll pick up the slack.

I mean, I'll motivate him... the little mullet head.

He may be party in the back, but I'll make sure he's business in the front.

What time is it? I think it's noon. About noon.

Lunch time. Yeah.

Want to place the order?

Yeah. Yeah, sure, sure.

I think it's Phil's turn, though, right, Phil?

Fuck it, Mike. Let's flip for it. What?

Let's flip for it. Where'd you get that?

Found it. It might even be worth something, too. You ready?

You found it? Yep.

Call it in the air. Heads or tails?

Heads.

Tails. Get going, loser.

What?

What? Hey, Uncle!

Gordon?

I found Hank! Gordon?

What do you want, Jeff?

I found Hank.

What the fuck are you talking about?

I just found Hank... in the stairwell. He was just standing there.

Don't be a fucking idiot, okay?

I'm not a fucking idiot! I swear to God, I saw him!

If he's in Miami, Jeff, why would he be here?

How could that be possible, Jeff?

I don't know, but I saw him!

You know what? Go back to work, we'll bring you lunch.

Where was he, Jeff?

In the staircase, next to the equipment room.

Wait... wait a minute. You believe him? You believe this punk, Gordon?

Gordon! Oh, for Christ's sakes, Mike!

This is so goddamn ridiculous! Gordon!

If he's in Miami, why would he be here? Ask him yourself, Phillie. Right up there.

We're gonna do that, Jeff. We're gonna do that, my man.

That's what we're doing, man. That's where I'm taking you.

We're gonna do that.

I'm telling you, he's up there. Where is he?

He was standing right there.

It's fucking weird, but he's right here. I'm telling you. He's right...

Right over where, Jeff?

I swear he was. I'm not lying. Why would I make this up?

Nice going... Jeff.

Okay, listen to me guys, now. You heard me on the phone with Amy.

Am I right? She said Hank went to where? Miami! Okay?

Now, we heard it, we all heard it, right?

No... no, we didn't.

What?

I want to go to lunch. No, you stay where you are.

What are you saying, Gordon?

You told us that's what she said, but we didn't hear her say it.

We saw you on the phone, we heard you on the phone, we didn't hear Amy.

Right, so what you're saying to me is that it wasn't Amy on the phone?

Is that what... Mike, now, come on, man. This is what I'm talking to you about.

Mike. Mike, give me that cell phone. Why?

'Cause I want to talk to Amy.

What? I spoke to Amy. You don't need to speak to Amy.

Give me the cell phone. Don't give him the fuckin' cell phone.

Give me the cell phone. Mike, that's what I'm trying to tell you.

Give me the cell phone. He's losing it, man.

Mike, give me the cell phone!

This is what I'm telling you. He's losing it, man!

Look at him! He's losing it, man! Give me the fuckin' cell phone!

What the fuck was that? It's Hank!

It's Hank!

Okay, okay. Jeff, Mike, go downstairs. Make sure he doesn't come around.

You, you come with me. Hey! Fuck you!

You come with me. Let's go.

Mike! Come on, Jeff.

Oh, wait, you heard him go that way. Take the tunnels. They're safer.

Safer?

Gordo, this could be anybody. Could be squatters, could be kids.

Come on, Phil, slow down, man. He's not fucking down here.

God!

Hey, Gordo, did you hear that?

I thought I heard something down there, in the tunnels. Did ya hear it?

No. No, it's this way.

Gordo, I'm going down in the tunnels, all right? You follow up top.

Mike! Mike, we stick to...

Fuck this.

What the fuck, Phil? Man, slow down.

So fucking stupid! Why? Shh! Shh!

I don't hear anything. Shh! Shh!

Give me your torch.

This is fucking dumb. He's not gonna be down there.

Shut up! I want you to stay right there.

You see or hear anything, you call me. You understand me?

I left my walkie in the van! Stay there!

Phil, wait! What, Jeff?

When I saw Hank, I think he had blood on his hand.

Stay there.

And, Billy, you understand that you, the Princess and Simon are all in Mary?

Yes, sir.

And if Mary is sick, then, you are sick, too. All of you.

Yes, sir.

You want Mary to get better, right, Billy?

Yes! So, help her, Billy.

Tell me about that night in Lowell, Billy.

We were playing hide n' seek, sir.

Mary was looking at her new doll, and she was looking for Peter.

It was real dark.

Phil?

No, I won't tell!

Mary's a good girl! She doesn't need to know!

What? What Simon did!

To who, Billy? To who?

To Peter!

What did Simon do to Peter, Billy? I won't do it!

Tell me, so that we can make Mary...

Fuck!


Gordon.


What are you doing here?

What are you doing here?

Billy, I need to talk to Simon.

He made me do it. It was awful.

Billy, wait. It was awful. No!

What are you doing here?

We need to wake up Simon. No, it's too awful!

Wake up Simon.


What are you doing here?

What are you doing here?

Phil. Phil, I think I found Hank.

What are you doing here?

Gordon, come back.

Gordon, come back.

Yeah. Where are you?

Ward A. Third floor. I'm coming.

Hello, doc.

Simon?

You know who I am?

Billy has told me a lot about you.

Billy is a smart boy.

What happened on Christmas night in Lowell?

Use your imagination.

I'd rather you tell me, Simon.

Peter was naughty, doc.

What did Peter do?

He shouldn't have done it, doc.

Tell me, Simon.

He scared Mary, doc.

He crept up behind her in the dark.

And he scared her.

Mary fell down, doc.

She fell on her doll.

It cut her up, doc. It cut her up real bad.

She needed someone to help her.

So I introduced myself.

Hello, Mary.

And I told her to cut up Peter, doc.

Do it, Mary.

To cut him up real bad.

Good thing his knife was brand-new.

Real sharp.

And then, just so her mommy and daddy wouldn't get mad...

...I told her to cut them up, too.

Do it.

There was a lot of blood, doc.

So much blood.

But Mary wanted to do it.

Do it, Mary!

So she did it.


Gordon, come back, please.

Who is that?

Gordon, it's Jeff. I'm by the van.


I'm sorry, man. I was freaking out. The lights went out.

I got these in the van. Is that okay?


Come back.

Come back.

This is Gordon.

We found the one...

The one responsible.


You've got to be kidding me. Freaking beautiful.


Gordon!

Hello? Hello? Hello?

Phil?

McManus is here. Where are you guys?

Phil?


I mean... I mean...

He was a liability.

Who did this?

Well...

I mean... He brought it on himself.

Didn't he? I mean, it's typical... Typical Henry.

Wrong place at the wrong time.

You did this.

Gordon.

I need you to wake up... and take... a really... really... good look at him.

Oh, Jesus.

What are you doing here?

It's okay, Hank. Hank, it's okay, it's me.

You hang in there, brother. You hang in there.

We'll try and get you some help, okay?

You know what I wouldn't do? I wouldn't tell anybody about this.

Because if they find out about Hank, they're gonna find out about the others.

You did this.

What are you...? What are you doing here? Huh?

You got those guys, didn't ya? You hired those guys to do this?

Gordy, you are asleep.

You hired those guys to kill him. You're asleep.

Where are the others? Open your eyes.

Where are they? You've got to wake up.

You tell me where they are. Would you wake up?

Tell me. Would you wake up?

I am fucking awake!

Hey! Gordon!

Who you talking to, man?

Gordon?

I'm a little confused here, man.

What's, uh... Hey, what is it?

Hey, Gordon!

No!

No!

Do it, Gordon!

What are you doing here?

Why did you do it, Simon?

Because Mary let me, doc.

They always do.

What are you doing here?

They always do.

You know what I wouldn't do?

I wouldn't mention this to anyone, Gordy.

Gordy. I wouldn't tell anybody about this.

Because if they find out about Hank, they're gonna find out about the others.

I found Hank, Gordy.

He's hurt, and he said you did it to him. Is that true?

Gordy? Gordy!

Who did this?

Well...

He brought it on himself.

Didn't he?

Wrong place at the wrong time.

Where are the others? Gordy, you are asleep.

Uncle Gordon!

Wake up!

The lights went out.

I'm sorry, man. I was freaking out.

I got these in your van. Is that okay?


Gordy.

I need you to open your eyes now.

Wake up.

And remember.

Roses? They're lovely!

What's the occasion, Gordon?

Not here, Gordon. Later.

Watch out! Gordon!

Oh, my God, Gordon...

No!

Stop!

No, stop, Gordon! No!

Do it, Gordon.

Do it, Gordon.

Do it now.

No!


Wendy. Wendy, it's me. Please don't hang up. Please.

I just want to say how sorry I am for what's happened.

I am so sorry.

I am so lonely here.

I want to come home.

I want to hold you. I want to hold my baby.

Can you forgive me?

Can you forgive me?

And where do you live, Simon?

I live in the weak and the wounded... doc.
