Dunkirk (1958) - full transcript

Two stories in one - an easygoing British Corporal in France finds himself responsible for the lives of his men when their officer is killed. He has to get them back to Britain somehow. Meanwhile, British civilians are being dragged into the war with Operation Dynamo, the scheme to get the French and British forces back from the Dunkirk beaches. Some come forward to help, others are less willing.

[peaceful music]


Yes, Carlton?

There's something I gotta know,

and I don't want you
to spare my feelings.

I can handle the truth.

- Okay, son.
You have my word.

What's on your mind?

When I grow up, will I be
able to grow a beard like that?

You're a Lassiter,
and Lassiter men have been

growing legendary face wigs
for generations.

It's a king's beard
born in your blood,

perfected through centuries.

But never forget, it's not
the beard that makes the king.

- I know, I know.
It's the queen.

That's right, son.

We're almost there.

Situation critical.

Suspect still at large.
Approach with extreme caution.

Both: Surprise!

- Ah!
- Surprise, surprise!

What is wrong with you two?

Check it out.

- What is that?
- That is a gift for you.


Meet Morrissey the rescue dog,

here to rescue you
from your own handsomeness.

- That dog's Chief Vick's.
- He was.

He kept biting her daughter.

Affection gnawing
is what the vet called it.

He called it rabies, Shawn.

Either way, the Chief, Gus,
and I have come

to a little agreement.

She set him loose in my office

and sped away in her car.

Then you called us to come
down here

and the whole thing just felt
like a win-win.

That dog is eating my foot.

- Morrissey!
- Stop it.

- Psst.
- Stop it.

- Fsst.
- Stop it.

Excuse me, Carlton,
I didn't realize

you had visitors.

Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Sorry, no pets.

- Pets?
I'm sorry, I...


That's Morrissey.

He's a therapy dog.

Does he have a vest?

He does, though, he prefers
to call it a "waistcoat."

I think you'll find it all
checks out.


This an old Theraflu T-shirt

with tape over the "flu"
and "py" in Sharpie.

You're good.

One point for you, Dolores.

My name is Shawn Spencer

and this is my partner
Bill Poopingtons.

- No.

- What?
- Sidebar.

All right.

Carlton, what is happening
right now?

- Let it go.
- Yes.

- Bill Poopingtons.
What kind of nickname is that?

- Transylvania Dutch.

No, Shawn.

No more embarrassing nicknames,

especially in front
of peers and professionals.

Gus, don't be the night

your dad fell asleep
inside your mom.

We can't just stop doing bits

we've been doing for ten years.

We have fans;
They have expectations.

There'll be a huge backlash.

- Shawn, we are two dumbasses.
We do not have fans.

[clicks tongue]

From now on, I do the nicknames.

- No, no, no.
Absolutely not.

That's disgusting.

You have right of refusal

until we land on one you like.

It's a Band-Aid,
but okay for now.

I'm terribly sorry, Dolores.

What I meant to say was,
my name is Shawn Spencer

and this is my full-fledged
partner All-The-Pips-In-One.

- Accepted.

Could you fellas take
a little walk with me?

- [clicks tongue]
- Hmm.

Lassie, is that
what I think it is?


Guys, I love animals,
but I'm sure you know

what a prestigious place
the Herschel House is.

We do, but let me just say,
although the dog

is not fully certified and ate
one of the two gas pedals

in our car
on the way down here...

Two what?

We had hoped that
this visit alone would

start to help Carlton heal
his tangled memories.

He's a tough man
with the thick skin

of a northern white rhino,

but the heart of a smaller,
less-white rhino.

I know, and you're right, um...

It's Burton, but you can call
me Jermajesty

or whatever you'd like, Dolores.

Well, Jermajesty,
I am gonna kick myself

for falling prey
to a dapper, smooth-talking,

devil's food cookie
with a perfect cranium,

but I'll make the exception.

"Dapper" and "smooth-talking,"

that doesn't sound right.

Mr. Wilkerson, beautiful day.

Okay, dog stays, but he's on
a very short leash.

Short leash.

And, in exchange,
you guys can tell me why

you're really here.

- Damn, she's good.
- Yeah.

All right, Lassie called us
last night.

He's seeing things.

- Ghosts.
- Not necessarily ghosts.

But probably ghosts.

But there's a lot
of strange stuff

going on around here:

Eerie voices in pipes,
bodies being dragged

out into the woods at night,
black Jell-O.

We're checking to see
if this joint was built

on an Indian burial ground.

Uh, it was built
on an old Kmart,

and he's never mentioned
a word of this to me.

That's because he doesn't
want anyone to know.

We've sworn silence.

Shawn can't tell his wife.

My girlfriend thinks
I'm working a double shift.

I can't even take her calls.

Well, you can't take her calls,

because you downloaded
a rogue app

that changes all of your emojis

into little Jamaicans.

- Seventeen viruses.
- I see.

- So you have a girlfriend?
- I do.

Dolores, I'm gonna be honest
with you.

I only said "black Jell-O"
because that was Gus' nickname

in our adult dodgeball league.


And Lassie's terrified
that he's going crazy.

Anyone finds out,
it could cost him his job,

his dignity,
maybe even his family.

Carlton doesn't even remember
why he went

to that abandoned building.

His only recollection
of his shooter is a silhouette,

he's on nine different

and as you both know,
he suffered a massive stroke

during surgery.

So of course he's seeing things,

but feeding into these fantasies

is the least helpful thing
you can do right now, okay?

Now, I know this goofy
little white guy,

sexy black dude routine
the two of you have going

like the back of my scrubs.

But you really wanna help?

Just be the grown men
that you are.

Okay, what is going on here?

What, Dolores?

The nurse from "Color of Night"

fawning all over you.

I don't know,
maybe she's attractive,

but, Shawn, I'm with Selene now.

I can't keep track
of every shorty

that wants what they can't have.


Where the hell have
you two been?

Sorry, Lassie.

We were on our way up the stairs

when Gus spotted a Jamba
right across the street.

We made it happen.
Where's the dog?

He jumped out the window

the second you walked out
the door,

took my Jell-O, and ran
straight into the woods.

That makes sense.

He is a hunter-gatherer
of the highest order.

That wasn't the last Jell-O,
though, was it?

- Doesn't matter.
We don't need the dog.

Lassie, I'm gonna cut
to the chase.

It's gonna be
a hard pass for us.

We simply cannot keep lying
to our ladies

to cover up your spooky
ghost sightings, okay?

It's too hard.
They know each other.

We're grown men with real pubes.

Let me give you a visual.

You remember Eddie Murphy's
mustache in "Raw"?

Well, that's what Gus has
going on right over the twig.

Now look, whatever you think
you're seeing, it's up here.

You've been through a lot
and hospitals are creepy,

even super luxurious ones.

Trust me on this, man.

You're just really high.


[door creaking]

[eerie music]

Uh, Shawn.

What's in that dog's mouth?

Gus, please.

It is nothing more
than a human hand.

Oh, my God!
It's... it's a human hand.

And it's covered
in leaves and moss

and it's human and it is a hand.

I'm gonna have to call my wife.

I'm gonna have to lie again.

Lassie, we're in.

Of course you're in, you morons.

There's a hand in your hand.

- Go ahead, Gus.
Knuck it up softly.

Get that dead hand
away from me, Shawn.

Shawn, I don't like this.

Gus, you heard Lassie.

We need to get this hand
to Woody ASAP.

If it's ASAP,
why did we stop first

at Pokey Jack's Smoky Shack?

Because I'm not an animal, Gus.

Either way, it says
right there on the wall

was still living,

I'm a psychic

We're back to retrieve
dozens of detectiving tools

And that may require punching
a hole or five.

the Psych office?

I didn't buy anything.

You neglected to tell
your landlord

that you were moving.


I simply picked up the payments

and started subletting
to every hipster pop-up

coming into town.

I am literally rolling
in disposable income.


This seems illegal.

Why are you bothering

We may have left behind

You left behind a slow cooker
with a 3-pound roast in it.

They have the same show
on ABC, but newer.

He didn't tell me he was going
to Santa Barbara.

Neither did Shawn.

That's 'cause they were
sneaking around

on a case they didn't want me
to know about.

- And that doesn't upset you?
- No.

It makes it easier for me

to sneak around and investigate
cases they don't know about.

Juliet, there's something
or someone

he's not telling me about.

Oh, is this about the nurse?

What nurse?

Oh, no, it's nothing.

Lassiter's nurse,
she's just very sweet,

and she just seems
to really like Gus.

Super innocent.

Sorry, why would Kessler
contradict his own alibi?

Unless he was forced to.

You know what, Selene?

I am sorry, I have to go
to Santa Barbara

and get a prisoner to recant
his confession.

Gus is way into you.
Try not to spiral over nothing.


A nurse isn't nothing.

[laid-back music]

All right,
I guess the bloody figure

would have had to come
through here.

Man, even the stables
are spotless.

- I'd even eat off this floor.
- You'd eat off any floor.

Now, why would they keep

all this medical equipment
down here?

That doesn't make any sense.

What are these?

Ice chips.

They give them to patients
during therapy

when they can't hold down
solid food.

What are you doing?
Are you eating that?

Dude, there's, like, five
different flavors in there.

- You can't do that, Shawn.
It's impolite.


You ate a Nutri-Grain bar

that you found in an armoire.

Exactly, it didn't belong
to anyone... oh, my gosh.

Blue raspberry.

Now you see what I'm saying.

This is like a Concord grape.

- Excuse me.
Good morning.

Are you eating
the patients' ice chips?

- I am not.
He is.

- That's not true.
- We're sorry.

We're just... we're both fans
of delicious flavor.

- We're friends of the Chief.
Carlton Lassiter.

Ah, friends of the Chief's.

- Hi.
- Hello.

- I'm Dr. Herschel.
This is my facility.

Those are my ice chips.


I'd like to remind you,

that the areas marked
"restricted" are restricted,

because they are restricted.

- That feels fair.
- Mm-hmm.

We were wondering, did you
have any unexpected visitors

late last night
who had been attacked violently

and perhaps large pools of blood

in this general area
maybe headed that way?

No, no pools of blood.

Any people living in your pipes?

Maybe speaking their own
tongue, perhaps Parsel.

I'm fairly certain we do not.

I feel like we're making
some serious strides here.


What about one-handed patients?

Be it by birth,
industrial accident,

or voodoo.

100% of our patients have
100% of their appendages.

May I ask, gentlemen,
what is this about?

Say nothing.

Carlton may have seen a zombie.

[quacks] What are you doing?


It was not a zombie, sir.

It was a normal man possibly
infected with rage,

drenched in his own blood.

And, oh, did you know there are
bodies in your fields?

- [squeaks]
- Now I'm doing it.

You're good.

You are very good
at extracting confessions.


I know that the Chief
has been seeing things

that are unexplainable.

Believe me, we are doing
everything in our power

to help him work through this
during his recovery.

We even sent for a specialist

all the way from the island
of Cuba to help,

Mr. A.V. Catalon, a renowned

Dr. Herschel, I'm going
to be honest with you.

That title sounds like you
made it up right this second.

Do you have a picture
of this alleged Dr. Catalon?

All you have to do is look
into the flap of his book.

[in British accent] What?

He wrote a book?

[both laugh]

May I be honest with you,

Please, sir.

The Chief's behavior
is perfectly within

the realm of normal for someone

who has experienced
such severe trauma.

The only danger is if somebody

were to fuel his fantasies.

Am I being clear?

- Yes.
- Good.

Now, if I am ever to see
you two gentlemen again,

I hope it is in the area
marked "for visitors,"

because that's where visitors

do their visiting.

It tracks.

Good day.

Good day.

- Wait for it...
- Good, good.

- Good, good.
- Clear.

I know exactly who this guy is.

I know what makes him tick,
what excites him,

his biggest fears.

I like that very much,

for our purposes here,
we should probably focus

on the type of medicine
he practices

and how he helps the patients
at this facility.

I must disagree to disagree,

Sure, that will come into play
down the line, yes.

But more importantly,
how does Catalon feel

about his mother
and her unriddling dominance

over him and his seven siblings?

In his mind, yes,

The lying was killing me.
I was having panic attacks.

And the next thing you know

And apparently
I spilled everything

to Herschel during therapy,

because a few days later,
a guy shows up

at our office saying
he knows everything.

And he offers to keep
his mouth shut for a price.

A steep price.

Tileback played along
for a little while,

but once the IPO was announced,

they wanted to bleed us dry.

Tileback tried
to secretly meet up

with Chief Lassiter,
and they shot the Chief.

They tracked Tileback down
and they cut off his hand

as a warning.

He tried to disappear,
but they found him

and then they killed him.

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

They have someone working
on the outside,

doing all their dirty work
so that they can't be connected

to the recovery house.

Devon was so scared
and now he's dead.

Then why are you packing up

the outside triggerman is.

Yeah, I went looking

You know, five day rule
and all...

I saw that we missed
some of the hidden bandages.

Wait a minute.

Is this a smoky topaz-brown
earmuff or am I imagining it?

I don't know anybody who
would wear a bloody earmuff.

Gus, I know where
the outside man is.

Shawn, will you get
your hand off my knee?


Gus, for the last time.

Someone from this ice bar

went to the Herschel House
covered in blood

and got stitched up
mob doctor style.

Our highly skilled tracking dog,

along for the assist

What are you doing here?

We are trying to solve this case

so that you don't get busted.

We have evidence that the guy
Lassie thought he imagined

is actually real,
came from this place,

and is a VIP.

More importantly,
what are you doing here?

You shouldn't be alone.

I'm not alone.

I wasn't gonna let her
come here alone.

And where's this evidence?

- Currently?
Morrissey's stomach.

Or in his intestines.

By the way, it could come
back up at any time.

What's your lead?

Final bullet that shot Lassiter.

I found it.

And I found the gun
with the information

she didn't directly give to me.

- Nice, babe.
I'm proud of you.

Now, is there anything else
you'd like to say to me?

- Yes.
- Wait.

All right, I'm ready.

The slug was traced to

a rare Norwegian-made pistol
registered to Ova Asblorn.

The bar owner?

No, no.

He's just a sweet retiree

enjoying the second chapter

watering hole.

The Butcher of what?

- No, Bodo, Bodo.
Purse your lips.

That's a dope nickname.

Unless he's an actual butcher.

Then it's a little on the nose.

No, Ova's a gunrunner,
a drug dealer, an extortionist,

ran a major crime syndicate
in Norway.

At least, before he almost died.

I used to run
a different business.

Please stop touching my scar.

- Oh, my gooshen, Gus.
Ova had a stroke.

He was a patient
in the Herschel House.

He's the outside man
and Lassiter's shooter.

Which means Dr. Herschel's
on the inside

digging out the dirty secrets
of his rich-ass patients.

Feeding them to Ova
on the outside

to shake down the victims.

- Yes?

Can I talk to my baby's daddy?

- Of course.
- Thank you.

- Come on, son.
- Come on, son.

How are you feeling,

my little chocolate chippy-chip?

Oh, I'm fine.

You know I didn't really
faint before.

I was just resting my legs.

- Yes, rest those legs.
- Mm-hmm.

Now listen.

I know all of this happened
very fast.


So, Burton Guster...

- Will you...
- Oh, timeout.

Uh, Selene, I think
you've flipped-flopped

the situation here.

- Shawn.
- You're ruining everything.

This is exactly how
I imagined it would go.

I'm gonna be a godmother.

- Chief.
- Hmm?

She's my best friend.


So, Burton Guster,
will you make me

the happiest woman
on this planet,

on Ares and Pluto...

- And Pluto?
- And marry me?

Yes, I will do that.

[both squealing]

- Now...
- Ooh.

Selene, will you marry me

and protect me from spiders
and polar bears and...

agree to live next door
to Shawn and Jules

and have connecting pools
in our backyards

and a lazy river running
through our living rooms?

- Oh, that's a ton to unpack.
- It is.

- You know what?
Yes, I will!

- Yes!
- What?

- Yes!

Aww, ooh, yeah.

[both squeal]

[both moaning]

Sure you're not upset
about the whole no kid thing?

- What?
Oh, not even a little.

- Oh, I love you.
- Oh, yeah.

- You're my person.
- Yeah.


Now, we just have one tiny,
little detail to iron out.

- What's that?
- I'm still married.

- What?
- Don't worry about it.

- We'll figure it out.
- What?



[upbeat music]

How's it feel?

Blessed be the fruit, huh?

all: Yay, yay, yay, yay!

You guys, uh...

You guys go ahead.

I'm gonna stay behind.

Wait, here?


I spoke to Butterfly.

She just wants me
to live my best life.

Also, she hates me.

I think this is where
I'm meant to be.

From now on,
I will be Dr. Catalon,

and you two are sworn
to keep my secret.

- Excuse me, Dr. Catalon.
- Oh!

I'm sorry to say
I'm a bit flummoxed.

There appears to be someone
here claiming to be you.

Oh, really?


Gentlemen, the door.

Carlton, that is what
they call a collar's collar.

And I knew the second
they admitted you to

this beautiful facility
that, someday,

you'd find a way to discharge
your weapon inside.

Thank you, both of you.

- What for?
- How much time you got, Henry?

So, are you ready
to see Marlowe?

The question is,
is she ready to see me?

Oh, I think she's ready
to see you.

Oh, O'Hara, I made her go away.

I know you did.

I couldn't stand the thought
of her seeing me like this

one more day stuck in that bed
and stuck in this chair.

That woman's the greatest thing
that's ever happened to me.

- Agree.
- To agree.
