The Scent of Rain & Lightning (2017) Script

Pretty girl. Sweaty girl.

Shit. Where'd you park?

Walked up from the co-op. Something wrong?

Senior's here.

Chase and Meryl too.

You think I'm scared of Senior?


She's, uh, coming.

Maybe it's time we tell him about us and get it over with.


There is no us to tell him about.

Red, that's not what I meant. I just... you know, he wouldn't... he wouldn't understand this.

Yeah, well, that makes two of us now.

Let's really not make this a thing.

Apparently it ain't a thing at all.

Red, we've talked about this.

Yeah, we have.


I'm coming.

Come in. What's going on?

We need to talk to you.

Why are you back?

Did something happen to Mimi?

No, no, Annabelle's fine.

Uh... we, uh, had a meeting with the governor today... and, uh... Billy Croyle's getting released.

So the governor pardoned him? No, not quite, not pardoned.

His sentence has been commuted. It's, like, reduced.

Yeah, he was pardoned on account of his kid, Collin.

It's not pardoned. It's commuted.

The governor's not saying he's innocent, just the trial's smelly.

Look, the county attorney said the more Collin pushed, the more he got to feeling guilty... said he felt like Don and him hadn't done due diligence.

I don't know.

Really, the problem here is Billy's hat.

I mean, an eyewitness says that she saw Laurie take it out of Baileys' that night...

It doesn't matter whether she did or didn't pick up the damn hat.

It does matter. I'm not about to debate this.

There's no point.

Now, listen, I know what I'm about to say is gonna sting a little bit, but we need you to pack a bag and come on back out to the ranch till we can figure out how to deal with this.

No, I most certainly will not.

Billy Croyle hates this entire family.

He hates us with a vengeance, and the only way I can protect you is by having you on the ranch.

I know you think you're all grown up and ready for the world, but you're still a child, sweetheart.

I, against my better judgment, let you move down here in the first place.

It's not a good place for you to be, this house.

Hey, Pop... Pop! Listen, I know Belle and you had some kind of idea... Pop, Pop!

I think you made your point.

Hey, just look at it like this.

We can spend some time catching up.



Okay, fine.

Yeah, I'll come back.

I'll be back before dinner.



You've got to be kidding me. Hey, hey, hey... wait, wait, no, no, just... just let me speak.

No, I don't want to hear it. Okay... no, no, I-I had to do it, okay? I...

No, you didn't. No, please, will you just... will you just try to listen to me?

What? What do you want to say to me?

I didn't exactly want to get him out either.

You and your dad are exactly the same.

You don't take responsibility for what you did.

I didn't... Don't fucking touch me.

Hey! Look, just... just listen to me, okay?

Okay, so-so... the night... that everything happened, the police asked me if he left the house.

And I said that I didn't know.

But I did. I lied.

I mean, he didn't move a muscle that night.

I watched him until dawn.

I-I could have told the sheriff what happened that night, and I didn't... because I wanted to see him go.

Are you done?

So is that how this is gonna go?

I come out here as a courtesy call to tell you that now that the case is back on my books, I'm gonna have to look at all possible suspects, and this is what I get?

You should have ran an honest investigation, Don.

Well, that's a hell of a thing to say.

Mind explaining exactly what you mean by that?

You sat on evidence from the defense.

I "sat on evidence"?

And why would you have wanted that?

You got something you want to say?

Okay, easy, fellas. Come on.

He would have wanted that so we wouldn't have this, here and now... a guilty man walking out of prison.

Senior, you should know something.

I talked to Billy a few hours ago, and I told him... I told him... if any harm came to a Linder, hell, if one of you got so much as a paper cut, I'd be on his ass like flies on shit.

And you know what he told me?

If any harm came to a Linder, that's something he'd gladly go back to jail for.

Let you get back to your dinner.

Gonna smoke a cigarette.

Tell me about my mom.


Still might be the prettiest women I ever seen.

Definitely the world's worst cook.

And your dad... he'd just eat every damn bite of whatever disgusting thing it was she slid in front of him.

That was your dad.

Always doing the right thing.

Ain't gonna lie, it was annoying as hell sometimes, especially when I wanted to get into some trouble.

It was like I had Senior with me.

They a lot alike?

Yeah, it was scary sometimes.

But my dad was definitely friendlier.

Yeah, but I mean, come on. How hard is that?

Promise me you're gonna be smart about all this, kay?


You disgusting pig.

This town ain't full of chickenshits after all.

How refreshing.

Most folks happy just to put a sign in the yard, make an anonymous phone call.

I'm not scared of you.


Well, you should be.

Well, I'm not.

Yeah, I'll try to remember that.

I'll write it down in my diary.

You have no idea who I am.


You'll have to forgive me. I've been gone a minute.

Jody Linder.

Little Jody Linder?

Jody Linder.

That's Hugh Jay's little girl.


Why'd you do it?

Hm. I want to know the truth.

You want the truth?

You're in the wrong goddamn place for that.

Wrong goddamn family too.


I need to know why you did it.

Why did I fucking do it?

Billy. Fucking murderer.

Get the fuck out of my...

Billy, just... Billy.

Talking to me?

Goddamn it. Scared now, ain't you?

Why'd you do it? Fucking...

Granddaddy made me a murderer.

How's that feel, huh? How's that fucking feel?

Have a murderer all with his hands all up on you, huh?


Like that?

Run on home, now.

Run on home 'fore you get yourself into some trouble... in some real goddamn trouble.

Run on home.

You run home!

You run home and tell granddaddy all about what I did.

You tell him...

I meant what I said!

How many people don't think Billy killed my folks?

Not many.

So some people don't think he did?

I don't know.

No, that's not fair.

That's not fair.

If I ask you how many and you say "not many," then that means some don't.

Maybe a... handful.

You don't think he did it.

Jail's where Billy Croyle belongs.

You know something.

You know something and you're not telling me.

You're a Linder. You tell me.

Senior wanted Billy in jail, and that's what he got.

...sweet cheeks.

Huh? What's your name, huh? All right, that's enough.

You want another drink? You know what?

But don't... don't miss my point here.


Senior did it out of honest-to-God grief and sorrow, and... and he thought he knew the truth.

I'm gonna kill every one of you last fucking losers!

Billy, go home, goddamn it!

Did my mom... leave with Billy's hat on?

I don't know. Billy, um...

Did my mom leave with Billy's hat on?

Look, Billy deserved to be in jail.

You tell me what you think happened that night!

I-I don't know, I...

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

And that's the God's honest truth.

I don't, okay?

Maybe you should go ask Senior about what Doc saw that day.

Hold on!

Would have been in trouble without this.

Isn't she getting just a little old for that?

Aw, she gets to decide when she doesn't need it anymore.

Give me a kiss. Bye.

Laurie? Laurie. Yeah?

You two know you have a sitter in me.

Oh, sure do appreciate the help.

You girls have fun. Bye, love you.

Love you. Bye.


Yeah. Yeah, that's good for me.

Yeah, I'll bet.

Okay, bye.

Did Billy have a fair trial?

I'm looking for the...

Here you go. Thank you, hon.

He got a fair trial.

Ah... you ask me, he's lucky folks didn't string him up in the square.

Some people think he's innocent.

The last way I'd describe him.

Bailey didn't think he did it.

Well, he's been listening to too much damn bar gossip.

He told me to ask you about what Doc saw... the night my folks were killed.

Right, well, of course he did.

Downright "Matlock" of him.

If he spent as much time trying to make a dollar as he did sticking his nose where it don't belong, he'd be a rich man.

There's not much to tell about that.


Doc said he saw Hugh Jay get into it with a couple toughs from out of town.

Said that they... it looked like... could be trouble.

Doc and I talked about it, decided whether we should tell Don or not, and decided it wasn't important.

Wasn't important?

They weren't from around here.

They... they never could have found his place.

They wouldn't have.

It would have just muddied the whole situation if we brought that up.

So you didn't tell anyone about it?

I didn't, but it's a small town.

Jody, um, you play out here for a while, okay?

I'll see if your mom is up. But I'm hungry.

Yeah, I know, sweetie. We're gonna go get some.

Just... play out here for Mimi, okay?



Laurie, are you home?



Sweetie, no. Dad.

Oh, my God.

Oh, my God.

Oh, Jesus.

Hey-oh, hey-oh, hey-oh. Get.


Hup, hup, hup, hup.

Get on down there. Hup, hup, hup, hup, hup.

Get on down. Get.

Come on now. Come on.

Get on down there. Get.

Get. Hey, hey, hey.

Get in there. Get.

Come on, girl. Get your ass in there.

Come on.


Take it easy, Billy!

Get! You're scaring 'em, Billy.

Come on now. Get on!


Think long and hard before you start talking.

I wasn't doing nothing.

I seen it done out here a thousand times before by everybody else. You haven't seen it done around me.

You're done here.

Come on, Senior.

I need the work.

You're done here, Billy.

It's just a damn cow!

I wasn't hurting it. I was just getting it out of the way. It was clogging up the pen.

He didn't have to do me like that in front of everybody.

Hey. Hey.

Those boots do not come in my house.

Wouldn't think of it.

Hi. Hey.

You all are back early.

Staying for dinner?

The cheese comes all individually wrapped like that?

I was just checking my game... Hand it over.


I'll check it.

That was a good touch with this brown sugar on these carrots.

I like it.


Makes it kind of like dessert.

Don't get any ideas and start putting sugar on everything.

Goddamn son of a bitch.

Red just radioed, said the fence lines in the south got cut.

I know. I was just down there.

I need you to call the sheriff.

You sure you don't want me to go over and see if Billy was even... Let Don handle it.

Come on, Pop. We don't even know if...

We know. We goddamn well know.

Tell him you want to be there when he brings him in.

We deserve that much.

I just don't think it's the right thing to do.

At what point did you think this was a conversation?

This is bullshit, Don.

How come every time something happens, you come looking for me? That what you think, Billy?

Hugh Jay!

Hey, look at me, man. I didn't kill no cow.

One day, somebody's gonna knock Senior off his high horse.

Get your hands off me. Billy, take it easy.

I'm getting in the car.

So, uh... what can I do for you?

Who else would you have looked at... if Billy didn't do it?

Well, see, here's the thing.

That's like asking me what I'd do if Helen woke up one morning and stopped griping at me.

Something happened that night out on 41, the night my folks were killed.


You know I'm not as dumb as your grandpa thinks I am, right?

Senior should have told me everything he knew, but that don't mean I can't do my job.

That whole hullabaloo on 41, that had nothing to do with this case.

What makes you so sure?

'Cause the math's off.

What math?

All right, look.

Why do these city punks... kill your father at your house... and take your mom over to Frog Creek to drown her, steal her wedding ring... while they leave $200 in your dad's wallet back at the house?

It don't make any sense.

Pretend Billy didn't do it or those punks, right?

Who else would you look at?

I know it's hard to hear, but in a case like this, I've always got to look at family.

Thank you for this food. We ask you to bless it for our body's use.

What, don't I get a hello?

Provided you saved me some bacon.

Oh, my goodness. There you go.

Thank you, ma'am. Thank you.

Bacon, table. Bacon, table.



Can I steal your orange juice?

Suppose it doesn't fit you.

Fits you.

Hi, sweetie. How are you?

I can't stay that long, all right?

I don't know. Easy, now.

Good eggs. Tell you a fact right now, and I'm only gonna say it once. All right.

If you want this nice little honeymooning thing that you got planned, you know, I'm not gonna be able to pay for the circus that you...

Yeah. Are planning for a wedding.

Well, now, I mean, you know, Senior... Senior's got a point.

I mean, Belle and I... I mean, we can... we can discuss it.

We don't... It's not a circus.

Don't pay him attention. Hey, Meryl.

You going to the Grand Ole Opry tonight?

You just have one daughter, one daughter.

Jealousy's unbecoming. In fact, I believe you have this in a powder blue yourself. Oh, I do, yeah.

I need to see you in my office.

I need to see you in the office.

Whoa, whoa.

Morning, sunshine. Hey.


Take a look at this.

I need you to go to Colorado right away.


Now, I put you in charge up there.

I stand behind it, but if you can't do it, I'll ask Chase to do it. Dad, I don't need a lecture.

This shows me different.

If it's what I think it is, fire Timmons.

I'll leave it to you whether you involve the authorities or not.

You'll find it.

What... Hey.

Hey. Jody's right there.

What's gotten into you?

She's right there. All right.

You all right? Yeah. I got to pack my bags.

I'm heading to Flat Rock.

All right.

Hugh Jay, I wish you'd learn to stand up for yourself.

Laurie, can we not, okay? Not now.

I've had a couple fucked-up days.

Shh, she's right over there.

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey.

You think you're old enough to be messing with this?

I was just playing around. Where'd you get this?

Well, Chase left it here after he had all mom's coffee this morning.

What'd he want?

What do you mean?

He came by for coffee after the co-op.

I got to pack.

Don't mind him.

He's not happy about having to go to Flat Rock.

Do we need to talk about something?

What do we need to talk about?

I don't know. You tell me.

Come home like that, you haven't touched me in a month.

You tell me you're going to Flat Rock for...

Okay. I don't know what.

I'm going up there to take care of business.

I just told you what... you got a problem?

I-I just don't know when you're coming or going.

I don't know... I don't know when you're ever happy, 'cause you know what?

The truth of the matter is I was fine as a ranch hand.

You didn't have to get all riled up about me taking over my dad's ranch. So what is it?

You want me to stay here, or do you want me to do this?

Are you... are you insane? You ever look in the mirror and maybe realize that you're the one who's got the fucking problem? Are you insane?

Am I insane? Am I insane?

Don't try to pin this on me.

Don't try to pin... Me?

Me, pin this on you? You'd live in any kind of life your daddy wants, and you try to pin it on me?

What about the shit that I've been hearing around town?

Having my brother over in the morning and not telling me about this? Oh, my God, are you... keep your voice down. Huh?

What about the shit that I've been hearing around town?

She's down... Huh?

I don't... You want to talk about that?

You've been spending too much time in the bar.

Flirting with the boys, being down at the diner? Huh?

Yeah, I've been hearing things. You want to talk about that?

You want to talk? You want to talk right now?

Maybe I should hang out in some bars in Flat Rock, see what I hear up there. You know what?

It's a different story every week, and if it was last week, it seemed like you'd be pretty happy, me being gone most of the time.

That's truth.

Fuck it.

Hey. Hey.

Thought you'd be halfway to Flat Rock by now.

Yeah, I'm on my way over.

I ran into Doc Taylor, said we could bring by the mare tonight.

All right. Hey, Hugh Jay.

What happened to Billy?

Oh, you didn't miss much. He put up a fight?

It's none of your damn business, Red.

Well, what the hell's gotten into you?

You don't need to talk to Red like that.

I mean, we're all fired up. Kid's just asking questions.

Yeah, kid. "Kid" is the key word there.

Now, you and Senior will get the mare over to Doc's?

You're a dick. I'm a dick?

You been looking for something?

Yeah, where'd you find it? My kitchen.

Oh, yeah.

Looks like you caught us.

We need to talk when I get back.

Yeah, well, hopefully you're in a better fucking mood.

I hate you, Collin Croyle.

You're the dumbest, most stupid, mean idiot!

I hate you!

I hope your dad dies in prison!

I hate your whole family!

Do you have the files from the case?

Uh... yeah. Uh...

Sorry, it's... kind of messy.

Do you want a... do you want a drink, or...

Uh, yeah, that... that would be nice.


Do you want another?

Yeah, sure.


When your dad got out...

I was so wrapped up in... my own pain and hatred.

I wasn't thinking about anyone else.

I don't know. It just wasn't fair, and... and what I'm trying to say is I'm sorry, I guess.

I'm sorry.

I knew you were just hurting.

I've-I've always known that.

The, um... the case files are in my car.

Here, look at this.

It's George Timmons.

He was arrested in Flat Rock for embezzling from your grandfather's ranch just a couple weeks after your folks were killed.

Then the charges were dropped almost immediately.

I'm-I'm not saying that the two were connected, but... it wouldn't hurt to look.

I mean, Don didn't do so much as to make a call up there.

What do you think happened?

I... I-I wish I knew.

I had a lot of questions but not a lot of answers.

And the people that put Billy away weren't exactly falling over themselves to help me build a case on reasonable doubt.

I thought you told them that you stayed up the whole night.

I did.

Look, I mean, I want to make things right, but... I'm not here to find all the answers.

So you don't care about what really happened.

I mean, honestly, I think I'm the only one left that actually does.

Been looking for you.

Well, here I am.

I don't think Billy Croyle killed my folks.

All right.

That's all you're gonna say?


I mean, what... what am I supposed to say?

I thought you'd tell me I was wrong.

That ain't gonna bring them back.

I wish I could have met the Chase Linder everyone talks about...

New woman on his arm every week.

Been hearing some stories, haven't you?

If I asked you about my mom... would you tell me the truth?

Not about how pretty she was or... that she couldn't cook.

I can't help the memories that I can keep.

Was she fucking someone?


Was she fucking you?

Are you mourning her or my dad?

What is that on your shirt? Is that a bumblebee?

What? Uh...

I think it's a little more abstract.

It's, like, artistic. Where the hell did you find... artistic?

Those are little, tiny bumblebees on a grown-ass man.


I think it's just a design. Looks like a baby's bib.

Hey, you're on me tonight. Hey.

Y'all got room for a thirsty cowboy?

Always. All right.

Don't you have any other friends?

Yeah, but I ain't drunk enough to stand them yet.

You're just gonna have to bear my company for a bit.

You all pouring these on the floor?

Got to stay in your family.

Hey. Let's do another round.

Another round? Whiskey.

Whiskey? Whiskey?


You're certain you want whiskey?

Yeah, one more.

Belle wants a whiskey. It's spring break over here.

I say... I...

I'll make sure you feel included.

All right. That's very kind of you.

Well, you're such a small thing, make sure you're not doing yourself in too quick.

I'm fine. All right, you guys.

I'm fine. I'm just asking.


All right.

All r...

Oh, really? Yeah, yeah, yeah, no, they just came back on here too.

Yeah. All right, I-I'll t... I'll tell them.

I promise. I'll talk to you later.

Hey, your dad called.

Highway's washed out at 41 up there at the Frog Creek.

So he's got a room over here at the Pollard Inn, and he got you a room, and he said you're staying at Laurie's.

I'll stay where I want.

That's what he figured. He told me to tell you specifically that she is not staying at your place.

All right. Ooh.

Well, then we'll both just stay at the shop.

Yeah, that's right. You go ahead and show dad who's boss.

No, I'm serious.

It's good you find your spine and everything.

I'm gonna take a couple six packs.

Drink your beer, Chase.

I think we're just born into the wrong family.

Mm-hmm. Seemed like the right family when you was cutting that grand opening ribbon to your shop.

Oh, shh, shh. Whoa.

It's not funny.

If you'll excuse me.

Now you got me in trouble.

I'm sorry.

I don't know what your problem with her is.

Oh, come on. You can't tell me your whole act don't run you, slick.

I think you ought to consider what it's like not to be one of the Linder boys.

You gotta stop him in his tracks.

He was just trying to get a rise out of you, and...

I'm gonna get back out there, and I'm gonna get on his ass.

I'm just gonna kick his ass.

How are you gonna kick his ass?

I'm so tired of... You got to try this.

I just got it. I'm stronger than I look.

Oh, no. This is power lipstick.

That's really not... No, you gotta...

It's really not me. You're gonna kick his ass in this lipstick. No.

You know, Meryl doesn't really go for all that.

Meryl? No.

See, makeup is not about men.

Makeup is-is for you.

Like, the only thing that matters is that you feel pretty.


Well, well, goddamn well.

Here we all are, together. Where's my chair?


Here we go.

Hey, family.

How we doing? Huh?

We got the homely Holly Hobbie over here, the fucking fake-ass faggot cowboy.

You ain't never gonna be... you're just the same as me.

You from the same goddamn... You're right.

Side of the tracks as me. You're right.

You're absolutely right, but this is not the time or the place. But no, he went to law school, and this one... Something going on over here?

Yeah, yeah, he's just drunk. What about this one?

Hey, set me up. Four more of these on his tab.

He's rich. That's a great idea.

You think that's a great idea? Sorry, man.

We're all right. Oh, we just funning.

We were just getting ready to leave.

We just funning! We're getting ready to leave, right? We are just funning!

Why don't you all keep on drinking, and we'll keep pouring? Yeah!

All right.

All right! Damn...

All right? Yeah.

Look at us, the sober ones.

Mm, you are terrible.


Jesus, did you not get the heat fixed in here?

We got enough heat right here.

Come on, now. Meryl.

Baby. Oh, you want to go to the couch? Mm-hmm.

All right, let's go to the couch.

I'm gonna put this heat back there.

Hey, gimme that... ...any wood back there?

Sit. You need to sit.

You just need to relax. Mm-hmm.

Just sit. Let me put a blanket down.

Meryl! Just let me put a blanket down. You are so uptight.

I'm not uptight, baby. Baby.

Just give me a second. Come here.

Baby, come on.

Come on, Meryl. Are you gonna lay down with me?

Wood back there, maybe?

Do you got any wood down there?

Here... oh, yeah, you know where it is.

Come on. Did you get that?

This is just hysterical. I know.

Well, maybe to you, but I'm not gonna cross Senior.

Come here, come here, come here.

I'm feeling very cuddly.

I know the evidence, and I know the holes: the guys at the gas station... money missing at Flat Rock.

I know my mom was sleeping around.

People thought it was Chase too.

I'm not saying he did it.

Anyone could have.

But you, with your... infinite wisdom... had to sweep it all away, didn't you?

That's what you discovered in your detective work?

You got to be careful, Jody.

Chase didn't kill his brother.

He couldn't do it.

He didn't do it.

Oh, I run a blue streak when I'm cold.



Oh. The sky is falling.

We made it.

We made it.


Hey, uh, are you sure you're gonna be all right tonight on your own?



Afraid of thunderstorms.


I don't know what I'm gonna do on my own.

Is Laurie drunk?

I think Laurie's a little bit drunk.

I might be drunk.


Oh, that-that... that ain't... that ain't a good idea. What's not a good idea?

That is not a good idea.

Well, you know it's not fair to...

I should get going.

I should get going. Yeah, you should go.

How about a kiss?

Think I could get one of those without anyone seeing?

Hate for anyone to think we're a thing or nothing... or something.

I have a question for you.


You were with Billy that night.

Was he too drunk to leave the house?

Shit, I don't know.

All I remember is being so tired, I fell on that couch, and I was out cold.

Is that it?

That's it. I mean...

I remember Val telling me I couldn't drive home, and that boy of theirs was sitting on the floor and... just watching me like a hawk.

Police! Everyone on the ground!

On the ground! Other than that, I was out.

Collin... where's my boy? We're bringing him to you.

Keep your hands up.

I didn't kill no cow!

It ain't about no fucking cows.

Get him out of here.

What the hell? Hey!

Hands behind your back. What the hell?



Chase Linder... drinking in the middle of the day.

What would your dear brother say?

What would he say?

Ooh, ooh.

Can't nobody take a joke in this bar.

Take my business elsewhere.

Hey, hand it over.

But I was just checking...

I'll check it.

Okay? Little lady.

Oh, she gets to decide when she doesn't need it anymore.

Give me a kiss. Bye.

Laurie? Laurie.

Think we'll have to go to the storm cellar?

I hope not.

That's Chase's room.

I want you to go down there and wake him up.

Wake up.


How you doing?

We're going to breakfast. What, are you crazy?

Where's Belle? All right, she's down there.

Well, there's the best little alarm clock I ever seen.

You think your mama's still sleeping?

Yeah. You know your mama.

No, come on. You're gonna be fine.

Come on.

Come on. Red, come on.

What? What the fuck you saying, huh?

Red is not dead.

Red is sleeping 'cause I needed Red's gun.

Get the fuck off me. What?

You got a smart fucking mouth.

You know, I'm getting tired of your goddamn...

Get off him, you little cunt. Leave her alone!

It's between you and me! Look at me!

You did this to me, you piece of shit!

Get out of here, Jody!

You okay? Shh.

Hey, hey, shh.

It's gonna be okay, all right?

It's fine. Just keep breathing.
