Delirium (2018) - full transcript

A man recently released from a mental institute inherits a mansion after his wealthy parents die. After a series of disturbing events, he comes to believe it is haunted.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

TOM: Every Sunday,
my father had the camera out.

He loved to tape us.

[CLICKING SOUND]

[DOG PANTING]

[DOG BARKING]

You've been shooting all day.
Do you wanna give it a rest?

EFREN: It's Sunday,
you know the rules.

You know,
he's unconscious immediately.

I don't think
he suffered that much.

How do you feel about it?



Yeah, I haven't seen him
in so long.

That made it a little easier.

ALEX:
Dad.

Dad. Dad, look at me.

DOCTOR: Why do you think
he stayed away?

You know why.

My mom leaving him,

him running for office.

You know,
he was ashamed of me.

It's just he was a great man...

and he expected a lot
from his son.

When they told me
he killed himself,

I think--I think it's because
I was getting released.

No, you don't know that.



You know, it's no wonder that
he wound up hating me.

You know, one day,
you're gonna have

to take him off
the pedestal, Tom.

You've come far, my friend.

It's clear to me
that he loved you

even if he didn't
wanna face you.

He left you everything,
gave you a second chance

so you can start over,
live your life,

make up for lost time.

Now, just remember,

rule your fear.
Don't let it rule you.

And when in doubt?

Trust my brain,

-not my eyes.
-There you go.

[ALARM SOUND]

[BEEPING SOUND]

[DOOR OPEN]

I've discharged Mr. Walker.

Please release him
to his parole officer.

Good luck to you.

[PATIENTS SCREAMING
AND SHOUTING]

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

[BIRDS CAWING]

BRODY:
I know it's been 20 years,

but you got to remember
your own home.

[BIRDS CAWING]

BRODY: There,
your constant companion

for the next 30 days
of house arrest.

Impact-resistant, waterproof.

It'll warn you if you
start to stray. Come on.

-TOM: Jeez.
-Uh-hmm.

TOM:
Wait, what does this do?

[MACHINE WHIRRING]

You got to be shitting me.

[LOUD THUD]

BRODY: Okay. The tour is over,
because if I find out

you have a bowling alley
in the basement,

I'm gonna shoot you.

I need you to direct
your attention

towards this marvel
of modern technology.

It'll ring once or twice a day,

could be 9:00 in the morning,
could be midnight,

pick it up
before it rings ten times.

Stand in front of it,

smile, because that camera

needs to take your picture.

One more thing.

Fill it.

[SIGHS]

BRODY:
[SIGHS] Idiots.

Your parents had no idea
what they were getting into.

I swear,
the only way I'm going back

down the aisle is in a box.

Oh, bad luck.

Your father's suicide
just days before your release.

Shut up.

[SIGHS]

[FOOTSTEPS]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

[DOG PANTING]

Brody?

When my dad died,

what did they do with his dog?

He was put down Thursday.

How'd you know he had one?

Oh, he always
kept a Doberman.

He prided himself on how well
they were trained.

One bit me...

when I was little.

I wasn't supposed to pet him
when he was eating.

Never get between a dog
and his dinner.

Your father proved that
loud and clear.

Hey, what does that mean?

BRODY: It was days
before we found him.

It wasn't a pretty sight.

You feeling okay?

-Where are your pills?
-Oh, yeah.

Give me these.
What is this?

-Need a little?
-Look, that's--

That's my problem, okay?

Not yours.

Come here.

Come here. Come here.

Come on, don't be shy.

You and me,

we're gonna be friends.

Look...

for the next 30 days,
you're mine.

If you screw up
in even the slightest way,

you're going straight back
to the institute.

A perimeter breach,

missed phone call,

someone else in the house, oh,

any sign that you're losing it,

anything, boom.

Because after what you
and your brother did,

there is nothing
I'd like more than to make sure

you never get to swim
in that pool...

-again.
-Okay.

Everyone in life
either wears a collar

or holds a leash.

Guess where that puts me.

No, I'm never going back
to that place.

Never.

BRODY:
That's the spirit.

I'll be checking in.

Well, when can I expect you?

Whenever I feel like
showing up.

Oh, hey, can you grab
those bags for me?

Sorry, I'm alone in the house,

and I can't really--

Oh.

"Oh" what?

What?

What?

You just said "Oh".

Uh, oh?

You're supposed to say
something afterwards?

-Yeah. One of the things that--
-[ANKLE ALARM BEEPING]

Crap, I'm sorry.

If I take one step
outside the house,

this thing will call the cops,
so I just--

I just want my groceries.

LYNN: I can see why,
Mr. Badass.

You got five kinds of cereal,

four kinds of ice cream,

and every snack cake
in the Hostess spectrum.

You're off your diet?

Or you're just incredibly high?
I can't figure it out.

[AWKWARD LAUGH]

I just haven't...

been able to eat that

stuff in a really long time.

LYNN:
What are you listening to?

That's "Lump" by the Presidents
of the United States of America.

LYNN:
God, it sounds...

old.

I'm just not really that...

up on current music.

Yeah. No shit.

I guess
this is kind of awkward,

but I heard about your dad
passing away,

and I just wanna say I'm sorry.

You don't have
any family members

that could move in
and help you out?

Nope.

Well, what about your mom?

TOM:
I'm not supposed to...

let anyone in the house,
I'm sorry.

You might as well spill,

because whatever
you don't tell me,

Wikipedia will anyway.

Who's Wikipedia?

Look, my mom left my dad
when I was 15,

and I never heard
from her again.

Why are you asking me
all of these questions?

Because you're weird...

and interesting.

And trust me,
nobody's interesting out here.

It's like a cultural wasteland.

Then why don't you just leave?

Well, you know, I'm...

kind of stuck at the moment,

working at the market and--shit,

the market.

Wait, the groceries.

BRB.

Something...

tells me you still got
a CD player.

Am I right?

Groceries, CD.

TOM:
"Gray"?

Yeah. I like to...

label my mixes
according to the color I feel.

It's like a mood ring thing.

Okay.

It was nice getting
to know you and stuff.

Okay.

Hey.

Hey, thanks for coming.

Don't leave the door open.
Were you raised in a barn?

TOM:
Yeah, sorry.

You weren't in the middle

Like what?

What? A date?

Unfortunately,
you're the only man in my life.

Well, unless you count
my deadbeat ex-husband.

[LAUGHS]

-You sound as--

Wait, did you hear that?

Did you hear that creak?

Yeah, I did.

There's something I hoped

I'd never have to tell you.

What?

It's your father.

He doesn't want you here.

You're a nut bag.

[LAUGHS]

This is a big house.

They creak, make noise.

Trust me.

The only person haunting
this place is you.

[CHUCKLES]

When was the last time
you had a drink?

Never.

Never?

This will help you.

[LAUGHS] Okay.

Don't I have to take
a urine test

-every time you come over?
-No, that's my discretion.

You take them when I say so.

You're gonna be okay.

Yeah?

Yeah.

[COUGHS]

Oh, God.

That's got to be
an acquired taste.

You feeling better?

A little bit, yeah.

Okay.

Hey, thanks for coming over.

You're, like,

you're a lot nicer
than I thought.

Yeah.

In all kinds of ways,

it's just...

Okay. I'm--

just--

I'm sorry.

I thought--I thought
you wanted this?

What?

Oh, go ahead.
Yeah, laugh.

-No.
-No, no. Go ahead, laugh.

-No. No, no.
-Yeah, go on. Go on.

You didn't do anything wrong.

Laugh, rich boy.
Go ahead, you son of a...

You drag me out here
in the middle of the night

and go cold fish on me

and then you have the nerve
to pity me?

Why'd you get me out here, boy?

Why? Why'd you get me out here?

Because you're afraid
of the dark, huh? Right?

Oh, no, no.

No, no, no, no, no.
No, I need my pills.

I own you, bitch.

Please, no, don't take my pills.

Maybe when your demons start
coming out of the woodwork,

you won't play so hard to get.

Please.

Hey, little brother.

TOM:
No.

No, no, no, no,

You're in prison.

They told me
you were getting released.

Holy shit, look at you.

All grown up.

Well, don't look at me
like I'm a stranger.

Well, it has been a long time.

I knew you had your issues,
but it would have been nice

if you replied to some
of my letters over the years.

Out of sight, out of mind, huh?

How did you get in here?

I came in through the window
in the big room there.

You left it open for me.

No, no, I didn't leave
any window open.

ALEX:
I meant unlocked.

Jesus. Relax, Tommy.

[OMINOUS MUSIC PLAYING]

The window's locked.

ALEX: Well, I locked it
behind me, obviously.

You shouldn't just go leaving
your windows unlocked, Tommy.

ALEX: Can't be too careful
with all those crazies around.

No.

This isn't real.

What?

You're not real.

Is that so?

I'm sorry, you just
broke out of prison

to come say hi?

That's bullshit.

They let you out of the nuthouse
a little early, huh?

My pills.

You know that
I don't have my medication.

-You know that.
-You know that, Tommy.

How would I know that?

What's the difference?

I don't want you here.

ALEX:
I just got here.

-Why would I leave?
-[PHONE RINGING]

Let it ring, we're having
a conversation here.

TOM: No, if I don't answer it,
it'll call the cops.

-Isn't that what you want?
-No, that's a violation.

They'll send me back
to the institute.

I can't go back there.
I can't go back,

-I can't go back.
-Isn't that what you want?

What we really want, deep down?

To go back.

LYNN [OVER PHONE]:
Hello, Tom?

It's Lynn.

Hey, hi. Yeah, it's me.

It's my--I'm--it's--I'm Tom.

LYNN: [CHUCKLES]
Yeah, I figured it would be

seeing as no one else is there.

Did you listen
to my gray mix yet?

No. I mean, I did.

It was good.

It was...

eclectic.

LYNN:
Yeah, I kind of forgot

about that last song.
And sometimes I set

the next mix early
and I'm sorry,

this one got a little
bit pink at the end.

[CHUCKLES]

LYNN: So,
I've been thinking about you.

-You have?
-LYNN: Uh-hmm.

Did my homework too.

I found out some
pretty interesting stuff.

[OVER SPEAKER]
So, I was thinking
I wanna come up--

-Nope, no, no, no, no.
-LYNN: --and talk.

No need. It's, uh,

been really busy up here.

So, just stay at the market--

the market.

Lynn, does the Red Pepper Market
have a pharmacy?

LYNN:
Uh, yeah. Why?

I'm just--I'm a little low
on my meds.

LYNN: So, what the hell
do you want me to do?

Do you want me to boost drugs?

Well, I mean...

yeah.

LYNN: [SIGHS]
What is it that you need?

Lithitol?

Lynn?

LYNN: That's serious
antipsychotic shit.

Yeah, uh, how do you know that?

LYNN:
Um, look, the pharmacy closes

in two minutes, so I'm just
gonna slip in there now

-and see what I can do. But--
-Thank you.

LYNN:
--you're gonna owe me

quite the explanation.

Thank you.

LYNN: Who the hell
are you, Tom Walker?

Alex?

Alex?

Stop playing games.

What the hell, Alex?

[SCREAMS]

[OMINOUS MUSIC PLAYING]

Okay.
You're okay.

You're...

You're...

You're okay.

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

Oh.

Skinny dipping? Nice.

What are you doing here?

Really?

Do you mind?

Oh, yeah, yeah, sure.

You got a pressurized leak.

TOM:
What?

How do you know that?

My father is a pool cleaner.

So,

what are you--
what are you doing here?

Need a fix, remember?

Nice place, by the way.

Is it the maid's year off
or something?

Well, thank you so much
for bringing these over

but if my parole officer
catches me

with someone inside the house,
I'm screwed.

I just--I need to make it
through these next 30 days.

Wow. You're barely
out of the gate.

TOM:
Can I just have my pills?

Maybe we can talk later
on the phone?

Oh, crap.

Is this me?

Um...

Yeah.

I've actually been
drawing you a lot.

It's kind of, creepy, huh?

I wouldn't blame you
if you just...

left the pills and,

you know, took off.

I love it.

I always wanted a stalker.

I just never knew
I was so beautiful.

You are.

It's Glycamine,

it's pretty much
the same thing as Lithitol

so, it should do the trick.

Um,

sorry,

you're just gonna have
to explain this to me.

I'd like to hear
your side of the story.

I just wanna help you.

Okay. If I tell you,

will you just leave?

Yeah, I mean,
if that's what you want.

Okay.

Okay.

When I was 13 years old,

I had a real crush
on this older girl,

Julie DeMarco,

and when I asked her out

she totally rejected me

in front of the whole school

and when I told
my brother Alex about it,

he said that
we should teach her a lesson.

You know, give her
a little scare

as payback.

So, we hid under this bridge

that was on her way home

from this Wendy's
that she worked at

and when we jumped out,
he was right,

it scared the shit
out of her.

Then she started yelling at us

and calling us immature.

Alex didn't like that.

He kind of--he just snapped

and started whaling on her.

I mean, it was brutal.

I told him it was wrong.

But I think he must've known
that I wasn't gonna like it

because...

he took out this pair
of handcuffs

and chained me to a metal pipe.

I just had to sit there
and watch.

And then he drowned her...

right in front of me.

I remember as the life was...

going out of her,

he looked right up at me

and he said,

"I'm just doing
what you couldn't.

Sometimes it takes two men

to make one brother."

Jesus.

And then he made me
bury the body with him

and said
we were in this together,

we were partners for life.

I was so messed up after that.

So, he did it again

with another girl on his own

and this time,
he got caught.

You know, it all came out.

I was convicted of the first
murder alongside Alex.

No one believed
that I just watched.

He got life in prison
and I got the institute

on an insanity verdict.

My mind was...

ruined.

Okay. Well, we had a deal.

So,

thank you so much for the pills.

Have a great life.

You don't have to be alone.

Okay. Well, actually
the court says I do.

I might understand you
more than you think.

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

EFREN [OVER RECORDING]:
Hello, Tom.

You enjoying the house?

I wish I had the courage
to say this to your face

but...

as, uh, you know,
I never had the courage

to say anything to your face.

Believe me.
I'm not proud of this.

I left a lot of things
unresolved.

-What is this?
-Video file

recorded five days ago,

the night he killed himself.

I know you blame yourself
for what happened.

This isn't real.

It's as real as I am, brother.

EFREN:
For your mother leaving,

leaving and not looking back.

The truth is,

her leaving had nothing to do

with you two boys
being locked up.

The real problem

developed between
the two of us.

Our relationship worked

because I always knew
what was best.

We had rules--

Hey, buddy.

Just tell us where it is.

EFREN:
But with both of you
boys gone...

Where what is?

...her behavior
became unpredictable.

She would never talk back

like that to me before.

I would--I would--
I would've done anything

to keep her from leaving.

-[NECK CRACKS]
-[GRUNTS]

What I'm--what I'm--
what I'm trying to say is,

it's...

it's not your fault, Tommy.

I don't blame you.

He didn't hate me.

EFREN:
I know--I know it was selfish

to stop visiting you,

hide you away
like you didn't exist.

God, it was all in my head.

No shit, Tommy, what isn't?

EFREN:
I'm sorry.

I'm sorry.

ALEX: Oh good.
Only Mom hated us.

Dad just cared more
about his career.

I'm glad he cleared that up.
I feel a lot better now.

You don't know
that Mom hated us.

She left us, didn't she?

We were just children

and she left us to rot
in that jail.

What do you imagine
was so important

that she never came to see us,

never wrote, never called.

She just erased all memory
of her children.

What do you call that, Tommy?

I call that, hate.

We did a lot of thinking
in that cage

about Mom and Dad.

Each abandoning us
in their own way.

But we came to one inevitable
conclusion, didn't we?

I'm the only one
you can count on to be there.

We're in this together
and it's up to us

to take what they denied us.

What do you want?

What do you--what are you
looking for here?

ALEX: I'm looking for the same
thing you are, little brother.

A chance at peace, Tommy,

freedom.

Hidden amongst dad's secrets
in this house,

there's money
and that money is ours.

Wait, what?

-Money?
-ALEX: Yeah.

I don't want money.

I don't want any of this.

ALEX: I'm here because
you needed me,

okay?

Trust me. You do need me.

TOM:
No, I don't need you.

I have my pills now, Alex.

I don't want you here,

okay?

The only thing I wanna do
is serve my next 30 days

and then, for the first time
in my entire life,

I'm gonna be free.

[GASPING]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

They're kicking in.

[DOOR OPENS]

BRODY:
Tom, where are you?

This is bad.

Are you okay?

You know, I've had better days.

I didn't realize
how sick you are.

Listen, I'm not--

Listen to me.

I'm gonna go home
and get your pills.

Holy shit.

[DOOR CLOSES]

TOM:
Thank you, Lynn.

Goodbye, Alex.

[OMINOUS MUSIC PLAYING]

[GRUNTS]

Oh, yeah.

Hmm.

Alex?

Alex?

[OMINOUS MUSIC PLAYING]

His bike.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

[INTENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Yes! Yes.

Oh, yeah.

[DOORBELL CHIMING]

[KNOCKING]

Uh, come in. Come in.

I had to come by after work

because I felt really bad

-for what you told me.
-No, no, no, no, no.

Hey, you know what,

don't worry about it.

I'm surprised
you're so hospitable

all of a sudden because you
couldn't have gotten rid of me

faster before.

Oh, um,

that was before my meds
kicked in.

I'm feeling...

much better now.

You were seeing
some pretty weird shit, huh?

Yeah, you could say that.

Hey, uh,

you want something to drink?

LYNN:
Yeah.

I'll take some of that...

grape juice straight up.

I'm glad my drug trafficking
paid off.

Yeah.

It's worse when I'm alone.

Back in the institute,

all these people around,

I could, kind of, control it.

But here by myself,

I just--I thought
maybe the drugs

wouldn't be enough, you know.

Well, you have...

27 more days to go.

Yeah.

I think I'll always
be haunted though,

because I didn't do anything

except watch that day.

LYNN:
What would you have done?

You were 12.
You were handcuffed.

I could have ignored his threats

and gone to the police
after that first murder.

If I did that,

that other girl
might still be alive.

But...

I've come to see
that there's nothing

I can do about that.

I just have to make

the best choices I can

from here on out.

How the hell
are you still such an optimist?

I mean, after all the shit

that you've been through.

I'm not an optimist. I've--

I just don't think
I have any other choices.

I mean, what can I do?

Give up?

Sometimes, yeah.

Yeah.

You can be surrounded by people

and...

still feel so alone.

I did everything

to try to fit in. I...

was nice to them,
I smiled at them...

and they just took
advantage of that.

The boys in our school,
they...

treated me like I was their dog.

I think that the worst part is,
is that...

I went along with it.

You start to hear

that you're worthless
so many times,

you start to believe them.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

I know what it's like

to take medication

and not feel normal.

And I know what it's like
not to trust yourself

with your own life.

Shit.

What a pair.

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

Um, can you excuse me
for a moment?

Because I'm--I--

I'm like a hot mess right now.

I just need to go
to the bathroom.

Wait, Lynn?

Yes?

Um,

if I, I mean, if--

when I get done with my...

30 days,

-would you--
-I'd love to.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

Uh, what?

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

That's real.

[OMINOUS MUSIC PLAYING]

[GLASS CLINKING]

[OMINOUS MUSIC PLAYING]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

Oh, Jesus.

What did I do?

Oh, sh--

I d--I didn't--

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Fuck it.

[OMINOUS MUSIC PLAYING]

-No.
-Oh, Jesus.

TOM:
Look, this isn't what--

-Put her down.
-TOM: No, no, no...

-Put her down.
-I--

-Put her down now.
-Okay. Okay.

BRODY: Put her down.
Get away from her.

Why did you do this?

What happened to you?

Why the hell did you do this?

I didn't. Um, I mean...

Is this because of your brother?

What? Wait,
what happened to my brother?

He burned in a prison fire.

Is he dead? Are--do you know
for a fact that he's dead?

-[INTENSE MUSIC PLAYING]
-BRODY: Ah!

Oh.

[BRODY GASPING]

Well, I guess that settles it.

I'm real.

You mean, you're--

Oh, Alex, what--

-Alex, what did you do?
-What you couldn't.

-[PHONE RINGS]
-Get the phone, Tommy,

before it calls the cops.

[PHONE RINGS]

Get the phone now.

MAN [OVER THE PHONE]:
State your name.

Tom...

I'm as real as you are, brother.

Well, if I'd have had it my way,

I would've convinced you
otherwise.

Where did you go?

For a crazy hermit
with no friends,

you have a very active
social life.

What are you gonna do
with that?

We're gonna have some fun.

No, you're not--

There's a tunnel.
I saw--I saw a tunnel

next to the pool.

It leads to a bunker
or, like a, uh,

vault or something.

Oh, yeah?

All right.

Don't start without me.

[OMINOUS MUSIC PLAYING]

TOM:
Come on.

What are you doing?

You got to get out of here
right now, okay?

You got to get in your car,
and you got to drive, now, go.

Run. Run, run.

[LYNN GRUNTS]

Why are you still here?

Time to finish this, Tommy.

Was the money in the vault?

There's nothing down there
that I want.

You saw him, you saw Dad,

didn't you?
You saw Dad down there.

You saw Dad down there,
didn't you?

Remember these?

-No.
-Yeah.

No.

Alex. Alex.

No. No, no, no, no.

Don't do it, Alex.
Alex, don't--

Alex, don't do it.

Please.

Alex, don't do it.

ALEX: You do what you do best,
little brother.

Watch.

Shit.

ALEX: I need
my little peeping Tom

and you need me.

No. No. No.

ALEX:
Just like...

old times.

-TOM: No, no, no.
-Huh?

Watch this, Tommy.

No! Please!

No, please, no.

Oh, God.

No. No.

Please. No, please no.

No.

No, I'm not watching

another goddamn thing.

[GRUNTING]

TOM:
No.

[BOTH GRUNTING]

[COUGHS] Go to hell.

You wanna see hell, huh?

I'll show you hell.

[GRUNTS]

I'll show you hell.

Ahh.

[GROAN] Fuck.

ALEX: Have fun down there,
little brother.

[WATER SPLASHING]

[TELEPHONE RINGING]

ALEX: He was messed up,
wasn't he?

More than either of us
could ever be.

I guess you never really know
someone until they're dead

and you get to pick over

their bones.

This isn't real.

None of this is real.

You're not real, okay?

None of this exists.

This is all in my--
it's all in my head.

ALEX:
That's priceless.

You spent 20 years

wishing your eyes
would show you the truth

and when they finally do,

all you want is to retreat back

into your head.

Ambiguity is bliss, huh, Tommy?

Well, let me cure you

of your uncertainty
once and for all.

Our father was sick
and he made you what you are

and he made me what I am.

And his blood was poison

and it ruined us both.

And now I'm gonna prove it

with your little girlfriend.

No.

[SOBBING]

TOM: Look at the--
look at the phone.

Look at my parole phone.

Notice anything?

That's real.

The cops will be here
any minute.

Not before I take this out
on your girlfriend.

Well, I found the money.

ALEX: Bullshit.
I don't trust you.

You don't have time not to.

It's in a safe down here.

Okay, you just let Lynn go

and I promise you
that there's a safe

and I swear to God,

I'll tell you the combination.

What about your new best friend
down there?

Aren't the two of you
getting along?

What?

[INTENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

1007.

[CHAINS CLANKING]

[EERIE ECHOING MOANS]

Move.

TOM:
Who are you?

[EERIE MOANING]

Who are you?

[INTENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Oh, my God.

You never left.

Oh, my God, you never left.

It's me.

It's--it's your Tommy.

It's Tommy.

Oh, Jesus Christ.

I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

I'm sorry.

Mom.

[CRYING]

Oh, Mom, I'm sorry.

What is that? Wait, wait, wait.

Stay right here. Stay here.

Stay here for one second.

-[CRYING]
-[WATER LAPPING]

[SOBBING]

TOM: [SOBBING]

Oh, God.

I'm sorry, Mom.

I'm sorry.

Okay. Come on.

[LOUD GASPING]

It's a family reunion.

Hey, Mom.

[WOMAN CRYING]

Shh, shh, shh, shh.

ALEX:
It's okay.

[LOUD CRYING]

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

ALEX: It's okay,
it's over.

-Oh!
-[GUNSHOT]

Oh, my God.

What did you do?

What did you do?!

The same as always, Tommy.

What you wanted to but couldn't.

No.

You bastard.

Open the safe.

No.

What?

Open the safe now.

[WOMAN CRYING]

Hurry up.

Five...

four...

Um,

his office.

He had to have set this
for the office.

-Three.
-Fuck. Just...

-LYNN: Hurry, hurry.
-Breathe, breathe, come on,

breathe, it's okay, it's--

two...

Maybe phone number.

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[OMINOUS MUSIC PLAYING]

1007.

Ten-oh-seven.

October 7th.

Their anniversary.

October 7th.

One.

That was close.

I knew it was here.

Get back.

[OMINOUS MUSIC PLAYING]

I knew it was here.

[OMINOUS MUSIC PLAYING]

[GUNSHOT]

[METAL CREAKING]

LYNN:
Here.

[GRUNTS]

ALEX: We're still
in this together,

two men, one brother.

That's one too many for me.
