- Just get down,

you don't have to do this.

(tires squeal)

- Ann, just get down!
- Get down!

Okay, over here,
over here, hold on.

Paul, it took you
guys long enough!

- We just got the message!

Ann, Ann, what the
hell are you doing?

- You're scaring
the hell out of us!

- Do you have any idea
what you're doing?

- You're wasting your
breath guys, come on!

- There's no talking to her,
we just have to do something.

- Ann, Ann!

(people chatter)



- You guys are a
bunch of babies!

- Not me, sis, I'm not a baby.

- No, not you, Jerry.

(people chatter)

- Come on.
- Come on, Ann,

don't do it.

Come on, don't do it

(people holler)

Ann, no!

(upbeat rock music)

(people laugh)

(Ann hollers)

(people holler and laugh)

- [Paul] Ann, you're crazy!

- I told you she'd do it.

- [Paul] All right, I'm next!

- [Jerry] Come on,
Chad, let's go!

(Ann hollers)

- Not that you
Philistines deserve it

but today we're going
to hear some live music

courtesy of Sharon McKay.

Mendelssohn's Rondo Capriccioso.

(beautiful piano music)

(people chatter)

- Now don't get me wrong,
I'm not running to the mall

to buy the CD or
anything but back there

you almost made me
like Mendelssohn.

- Thank you.

- No, seriously I've been
in this class all semester,

I haven't heard
anything half as good.

I'm Jerry, Jerry Price.
- Hi, Sharon.

- How you doing?

Oh, sorry if we scared
you the other day.

- Excuse me?
- Me and my sister,

see she kinda likes to
take chances, you know?

- Oh, no kidding.

- Listen, we're throwing
a party this Saturday,

wanna come?

- I don't even know you.
- Here.

Here, eight o'clock to whenever.

- Studying?

- Uh-huh, I've got a
couple of tests this week.

- It's Saturday night.

- Oh, you look nice.
- Hot date.

One of us has to
have a social life.

Don't wait up for me.

- Night, Mom.
- Night.

(upbeat rock music)

(people chatter)

- Nice seeing you.

Ammad, I love you.

(Ann laughs)

You look fab.

Linda, good to see you.

Have you seen Paul anywhere?

I can't find him.

- Hey.
- Great party.

- Hey, thanks, have
you guys seen Paul?

- I saw him go
upstairs awhile ago.

- You did?

- Hmm-mm.
- Okay, bye.

Hi guys.

(Ann chuckles)

♪ No telling where I've been

♪ 'Cause I'm all out of given
and I'm out of control ♪

(doorbell rings)

♪ Ooh it's now I break

- Hi.
- Hi.

- Jerry invited me.
- Oh, okay,

well, I'm Chad.
- Oh, Sharon.

- Yeah, I'll go get
Jerry for you right now.

- Paul, these are our friends.

- No, no, these are your friends

and they don't give a damn
if it's my birthday or not.

Come here, come here.

Let me ask you something.
- Okay.

- Don't you get tired of
seeing the same faces,

doing the same things?

Look, I know that
you've got some time

and I know that
you've got some money.

(Ann giggles)

So, why don't you let me
take you to California.

- Now why would I
wanna do that, hmm?

- Because you're crazy about me.

- Oh, really?
- Yeah.

- I'm crazy about you.
- Uh-huh.

- How crazy am I?

(Ann chuckles)

Ooh.

Oh, why Mr. Lear,
we have guests.

♪ What I need I take

- Hey, you made it.
- Oh, yeah.

- Great, let's get you a drink.

- Oh, okay.

- Is this your first party?

(Sharon chuckles)

- It feels like it.

- Oh, don't like crowds huh?

- No time, I'm usually either
studying or practicing.

- Right, there you go.
- Thanks.

So, your parents don't mind
you having parties like this?

- I don't know, ask a
psychic, they're dead.

- Oh, god, I'm sorry.

- Oh, no, no, no, no,
no, it was years ago,

I don't even remember them.

- My dad died in a plane
crash when I was a baby.

- Oh, small world, mine
too, in their private jet.

- My dad was in the Army.
- Oh, war hero.

- No, no, just an
unlucky test pilot.

- Oh, so I guess
we're fellow orphans.

- It's beautiful and
this is like a fairytale.

- Yeah, you know that
guy Chad he lives here,

he helps out around the place.

He actually built that
loft up above the garage.

- Hmm-mm.

- Him and his brother,
he came up from San Diego

and he put in this gazebo.

Ann always wanted one so.

- It's amazing.

- Yeah, well, it better
be it cost us a fortune.

- You really do own this place.

- Only half of it.

Boo.
- Oh, I'm so scared.

- Hi, I'm Ann, Jerry's sister.

- Hi.
- This is Sharon,

from the music appreciation
class, remember?

- Oh, the piano player, yeah,
Jerry says you're incredible.

- Oh, I'm okay.

- Oh god, I hate false modesty.

You ask somebody if
they're good at something

and they say, "Oh, I'm okay."

While all the time
they're thinking

I am the greatest whatever
in the whole world

but they're just too full
of themselves to admit it.

Excuse me.

- Actually, Jerry's
right, I am incredible.

I won the state competition
three years in a row

and next year I'm gonna be
transferring to Julliard.

- Really?

Well, let's hear you play.

(upbeat piano music)

(Sharon chuckles)

- Well, it was a
pleasure corrupting you.

(Sharon laughs)

Thank you for the business.

(Sharon laughs)

- Well, hey, you know,
all work and no play.

- Listen, can I call
you sometime or?

- Sure.
- Really?

- Yeah.
- Cool.

- Goodnight.
- Right on.

Goodnight.
- Goodnight.

(slow music)

Good morning.
- Hi,

where'd you go last night?

- Oh, a party, just
some kids from school.

- Anyone I know?

- How was your day?

(doorbell rings)

Oh, I'll get it.

Hi.

(horn blows)

- Hey, come on, we're
going to the lake.

- I can't believe you
guys are up already.

- Up, now, we never
went to sleep.

Come on, let's go.

- Well, I can't, I
really have to practice.

- What for, I thought
you had Julliard nailed?

- Oh, not exactly, I'm waiting
for my acceptance letter

actually.

- Sharon, Sharon, Sharon,
Sharon, did you lie to me?

Oh my god, well, then
you have to come with us

to make up for being
a bad, bad girl.

- Okay, I'll be right out.

- Okay.

(upbeat music)

(people holler)

(indistinct)

(people holler)

(man moans)

(people holler and laugh)

(Ann screams)

(Sharon and Ann chuckle)

No, no, no, you're not
getting me up there.

- What, no it's not as
dangerous as it looks.

- Oh, I'd be scared to death.

Besides I gotta protect these.

- Yeah, how long
you been playing?

- Forever, it's all
I ever wanted to do.

- Really?

Oh, you're lucky I still
don't know what I wanna do.

(Ann laughs)

Not a clue.

- Well, maybe you're
the one who's lucky.

- Yeah, how's that?

- Well, you're not
locked into something,

everything and anything
is a possibility.

- Yeah, is that how
you feel, locked in?

- At times.

- Jerry likes you, you know?

- I like Jerry.
- Yeah?

- Hmm-mm.

- Well, don't let him fool you,

I mean, he comes off really
cocky and sure of himself

but he's not, he's
actually really sensitive

and he gets hurt easily
and I don't like to see it

when he gets hurt.

- It sounds like a warning.
- It is.

Just kidding.

(Sharon and Ann laughs)

What Jerry sensitive,
yeah right.

(upbeat rock music)

Hey guys!

- You coming, Ann?
- I'm going up.

- Oh, okay.

- Sharon, you coming?
- No, no, no, no, no, no!

Leave me out, I'm fine.

(upbeat music)

Be careful, oh god.

(Sharon giggles)

- [Ann] I really think you
should try the skirt on.

- No, no, you don't, really no.

- No, just try it on.

- No, no, no, no, oh my god, no.

- Well, you know, it's an idea.

- Wait, oh my gosh but look,

how am I supposed
to sit in this?

- Just sit like this,
just sit like this.

- You'll figure it out, just.

(Ann laughs)

- Oh my no, you know what?
- Oh, it's great,

it's so sexy.
- No, but it looks slutty.

- Oh, no, honey,
that's the whole point.

- Duh.
- You look great,

you'll get every guy
you want, I tell you.

(upbeat rock music)

(people laugh)

- Hey!
- Hey, help yourself.

- Love your show.
- Thanks man.

- Hey, you guys were rocking.
- Thank you.

- What'd you think?
- Oh, I liked it baby.

(man laughs)

- Let's get out of here,
it's kind of crowded in here.

- Oh, okay.

(crowd chatters)

- I can't stand that guy.

- Nico, how come?

- He's always sucking up to Ann.

(Sharon chuckles)

- You know any guys who don't?

- Well, it's not just that,
he wants her to invest

in his band.
- Mm.

- Yeah.

- Hey, did anybody ever
tell you that those things

will kill you?

- Well, probably I'll be dead
before they have a chance to.

- Don't say that.

- Why, it's true, it's my fate.

Why should I live longer
than my mom and dad, right?

- Oh, I see what you're
planning, to crash and burn.

- Probably.

Unless I find a damn
good reason not to.

- Jerry.
- What?

- I really like
you and everything.

- It's okay, it's okay,
I can fill in the blanks.

- I'm sorry.

- No, no, there's no law
that says you gotta fall

in love with me, right?

So.

(crowd chatters)

- Hey you, another late night?

Mail's in.

Go on open it or I will.

- Oh my god.

I'm in.

- You're in.
- I'm in!

- You're in!

- Oh, I'm going!
- Yes.

- I'm going to Julliard!
- Yes!

Okay, what does it say?

(mower runs)

- What's happening?

- I'm just catching
up on some reading.

- I'd appreciate
it if you'd ask me

before hanging out at my place.

- Actually this is my place,
Chad, you just live here,

remember?

If you're looking for
beers, I cleaned you out.

- What's the matter,

is there something I can
help you with, Jerry?

- Yeah, yeah, let's talk.

- Okay, what do you
wanna talk about?

- Let's talk about love.

(Ann and Paul chuckles)

- What are we gonna do, huh?

- I think you know
what we're gonna do.

Come on, Annie, you
trying to get us killed?

- Coward.

- What the hell?

(radio chatter)
(dramatic music)

- Is this Miss Price?
- Yeah.

- What's going on,
what's the matter, what?

- Miss Price, there was
an accident tonight.

- Where's Jerry?
- Down at the train tracks.

- No.

- He was walking
along the tracks, Ann,

he was really drunk.

- No.

- The engineer
tried to stop but.

- No.
- It was over

really fast, Ann.

- No, please.

(Ann cries)

- I'm sorry, okay,
this is all my fault.

Jerry, he was all
messed up tonight,

I should have hung with him.

- What, what do you mean?

- You know how he gets,
he was feeling lousy

and worthless, you know?

- No, no, he was doing
really well, Chad.

He was doing really well.

- I know he was but with Sharon
and everything, you know?

He was really upset that
she turned him down.

- Sharon.

- Yes, he was into her
and he and she wasn't,

he unloaded on me
about it tonight.

He was drunk, Ann, he'd
been drinking all day,

I should have known he'd do,
I should have gone with him

or something!

(radio chatter)

(Ann cries)

(dramatic piano music)

(clock chimes)

(ominous music)

- Sharon, have you got a minute?

- Oh, sure.

- Great, I just wanted you
to step in here for a second.

- Okay.

- [All] Surprise!

(Sharon laughs)

(eerie music)

- In the sure and certain
hope of the Resurrection

to eternal life through
our Lord, Jesus Christ,

we commit the body of your
child, Gerald the ground.

The Lord bless him and keep him.

The Lord make his
face to shine upon him

and be gracious unto him.

The Lord lift up his
countenance upon him

and give him peace
both now and ever more.

Give us grace, we beseech
you to entrust his soul

to your never failing
care and love.

And bring us all to your
heavenly kingdom, amen.

(rain pours)

- Ann, I-

- I don't think she wants to
talk to anybody right now.

- Just tell her how sorry I am.

- I will, I will tell her.

- [Man] Here you go.

- I've been thinking.
- What about?

- California.
- What about it?

- Maybe you're right, maybe
we should move down there.

- You're serious?
- Yeah.

Why not, I mean, it's just
too hard for me right now,

you know, to be in
this house, you know,

in this town and everything.

- Yeah, yeah, sure,
just say the word

and we're out of here.

(ominous music)

- Yeah.
- Yeah.

- Okay, I'm just gonna take
care of a few things first,

okay?
- Sure.

Oh, no, that's crazy,
because as I recall it,

a 10 ton locomotive
killed Jerry.

- No, Sharon did.

- Oh, right, right, it was
the evil Sharon's fault

and she wasn't even there.

- She's still a murderer Paul.

- Oh, absolutely and she
deserves to be in jail.

(dramatic music)

- Look, you gonna
help me or not?

(eerie music)

- You're serious?
- Completely.

(engine revs)

(tires squeal)

(tires squeal)

- Sharon, I've
missed you so much.

I've just been really
out of it lately,

you know, I didn't
wanna see anybody.

- I called a bunch of times.
- I know, I know,

Chad told me.

- I thought maybe you'd
blame me for what happened.

- What?

Oh my god, no, Sharon, no.

- I know Jerry had
kind of a crush on me.

- No, Sharon, Jerry
had severe depression.

He never really got
over losing Mom and Dad.

But Sharon, this has
nothing to do with you.

Jerry was drunk, he was crazy.

You made him feel
good about himself.

- I hope so, I-
- Hey, hey,

just because Jerry's
gone, I don't want us

to stop being friends.

- Oh, no I don't either.
- Okay.

(Sharon and Ann laugh)

- Oh, that's so beautiful.
- Thanks, Chad gave it to me.

Ruby is Jerry's birthstone.

- That's so sweet.

(ominous music)

- It won't work.
- Why not?

- Well, for starters,
you'll never make it,

you'll slam against the
cliff and kill yourself.

- No, I won't.

There's a gouge in the face
of that cliff 150 feet down.

I'll measure the rope exactly
and I'll swing right into it.

- Okay, let's say you make that,

how you gonna get around
the fact that the cops

won't have a body to toetag.

- Every couple of years
someone drowns in that river

and their bodies never turn up.

- Yeah, what if the rope breaks?

- It won't?

- What if the car
won't start, Ann?

- What if is for losers, Paul.

- All right, fine, you wanna
get rid of Sharon so bad,

why don't we just push
her over the cliff.

- No, because I
wanna see her suffer,

locked in a cell somewhere.

- Give it up, Ann,
it won't work.

- Tell me something, if I go
ahead with this on my own,

and it does work,
will you tell anyone?

- You mean like go to the cops?

- Hmm-mm.
- No.

No.
- Really?

Then you might as
well help me, hmm?

(ominous music)

- You're actually gonna go
through with this aren't you?

- Hmm-mm.

(people chatter)

Come on, it'll be fun.

- I don't know, I really
do have to practice.

- Oh, Sharon, you've
been practicing every day

for like 16 years,
I think you know

what you're doing by now.

- Well, you know, Horowitz
practiced six hours a day

right up until he died.

- Yeah, well, then he
was dead, so who cared?

Sharon, this really
means a lot to me.

Ever since Jerry-
- Oh, I know, I know.

- I just want things to feel
like normal again, you know

and I think a trip like
this might do that.

Hey, we can go without you
but it wouldn't be the same.

- Of course, I'll go, I
wouldn't miss it for anything.

- Oh, yeah!

(Ann laughs)

(ominous music)

(engine revs)

(Ann laughs)

- Nico's coming?
- Yeah, Tracy

and Evan bailed,
they'd rather be alone.

Guess what, I think
Nico likes you.

- I barely know him.
- Oh, that could change.

(Sharon chuckles)

- Sharon, Sharon!

- Have fun you guys!

- Bye!
- Oh, thanks Mom!

- Thanks, we will.

- Here I got this.

- [Nico] I'll be
your stewardess.

- Hey.

- Everybody (indistinct)

And your cushion can be
used as a flotation device.

How are you?

(Ann hollers)

Hey, hey now.

- Are you ready guys?

Let's go, let's go, let's go!

(dramatic music)

Hey, Sharon.
- Hi.

- Trust me baby, trust me baby.

Come on, I got a rope for you.

- Oh my god, you guys are crazy.

No don't, no, no, no, please!

- I'm just kidding,
I'm just kidding.

(people laugh)

- Normally, I'd go
down with you guys,

but I gotta walk
her down the trail.

- That's easy for you to say.

- [Nico] Normally I'd
be the first one down.

I'll walk her down.
- You've gotta be nuts.

- Somebody's got to.

- Okay, guys, whew!

(Ann hollers)

- Ann's really
something, isn't she?

- Yeah, fearless.

(rock music)

(Ann hollers)

- [Paul] Ann, this
isn't a race, slow down.

- Bye.

(Ann hollers)

(people laugh)

- Oh, I hope your brother
doesn't get jealous.

- Ah, he's my half-brother.
- Oh.

- Not a chance, Paul's
god's gift to women

or haven't you heard.

- I guess I was out of the
room for that newsflash.

- Oh, yeah, it's
pretty incredible,

it's like they all fall
for him, it's amazing.

(Sharon laughs)

- Actually, I'm the
one who's jealous.

- Why's that?

- Well, Nico was
supposed to be my date.

- Oh.

- Can you help me?
- Yeah, sure.

- I'm sorry.
- No, no.

(Ann hollers)

They better be careful,
this part of the river

can get pretty dangerous.

- You know a lot about
this area don't you?

- I do, I do, I love
it up here, it's,

well, it's one of the last
quiet places that I know.

- Ooh.

- Oh, I'm sorry about
that, is it okay?

- No, no, no, no, it felt fine.

- Oh, okay.
- It felt great.

- Okay.

- So tell me, how come you
don't have a girlfriend?

- Well.
- I mean,

you're a nice guy and
you're good-looking.

- Come on, get out of here.

- No, you are.
- Thanks.

- I'm sorry, I didn't
mean to embarrass you.

- No, no, it's okay.

- Well, don't tell me you've
never been in love before.

- Yeah!

(Nico laughs)

- Sure I've been in love.

(Sharon laughs)

- I do not.
- Yes, you do, you do.

- Like a pigeon?
- Yeah, you're walking along

a little narrow windowsill.

- It's true, Sharon, you've
been doing it all day.

(people laugh)

- Well, I'm sorry, it's
a very narrow path.

- Oh, yeah, it's a
really narrow path,

have to hold your feet wide.
- So embarrassing.

(dramatic music)

- So, what about you, Nico?

- You're supposed to
toast it, not burn it.

(people laugh)

- What about you?
- It's a violation

of family tradition
to climb mountains.

- Ah, family
tradition yeah right.

- No, it's true, it's the
11th commandment in my family.

Thou shalt not climb mountains.

- Right, I'm sure you've
never broken any commandments.

(people laugh)

- Don't let her bust
your chops, Nico,

there are plenty of
climbers in this world

but very few great guitarists.

- Well, thank you,
thank you very much.

(Ann laughs)

- And if you practice real
hard, you may be one some day.

(people laugh)

- You know, Nico's not
the only musician here.

Sharon plays the piano.

- Oh, right, classical
stuff, right?

- Classical, the romantics.

- No, I'm strictly
rock and roll.

- Yeah, well, you know
Sharon is going to Julliard

next year.
- Julliard.

- Oh, cool.
- Yeah,

of course how she got
in is a mystery to me.

My guess is she slept with
the head of admissions.

(people laughs)

- Yeah, right the
head of admissions

and the dean of the
piano department.

- Or maybe they just go for
that kind of mechanical playing.

(Ann laughs)

(dramatic music)

- Mechanical?
- Yeah,

or technically proficient,
I guess but shallow,

without feeling.

The way you play, Sharon.

- I thought you
liked my playing.

- Well, you're my friend, I
have to be polite, don't I?

(dramatic music)

- Don't be polite, please
tell me what you really think.

- Okay, your playing sucks.

- [Chad] Whoa,
Ann, take it easy.

- You're just jealous
because I can do something

that you can't.

- Oh, yeah, oh, oh I'm
really jealous, Sharon,

I'm really jealous.

- What I do takes hard
work and discipline.

You haven't the slightest idea
what those words even mean.

- Oh, Sharon, none of that
seems to matter does it

if you don't have any talent.

- Are you speaking
from experience.

- The only talent
you have Sharon

is for getting people killed.

- [Paul] Ann.

- That's a really
hateful thing to say.

- I'm sorry, I'm so sorry.

(dramatic music)

What?

She's gotta learn to
take a little criticism,

don't you think?

- Oh, for god sakes, Ann,
go find her and apologize.

- Fine, fine.

(dramatic music)

- Great, just what we need
in the middle of nowhere,

a cat fight.

(dramatic music)

(Sharon cries)

(ominous music)

(suspenseful music)

- Sharon!

Don't push me,
what are you doing!

(climactic music)

Sharon, don't, let go of me!

(Ann screams)

(suspenseful music)

- Ann!

- Sharon, what's the
matter, what is it?

What happened, we
heard Ann scream.

- So did I.

- Ann!

- Where is she?

- I don't know.

- No, but she shouted your name.

- Ann!

- Weren't you with her?
- No.

- I think I should climb
down and take a look.

- What are you saying,
you think she fell?

- I don't know, I don't know!

- Oh no!

- I'm gonna get my
climbing gear, stay here.

- [Nico] What happened,
Sharon where is she?

- I don't know.
- Were you two fighting?

- Stop it, Nico, she said
she doesn't know anything.

- Ann!
- Ann!

- All right, did you see her?

Ann!

- I should go, I'm
the better climber.

- No, no, just hold me steady.

- You're upset, you're not
thinking straight, okay,

come on-
- Okay, go Nico,

help me out here.

I'm going down, I'm going down.

- [Nico] Somebody's got
to, let him go down.

- [Paul] Give me some slack,
geeze, come on, let's go.

- All right, you got it, steady.

- Okay, okay, come on!
- Easy Paul.

- Paul, be careful.

- All right, stay, stop!

- You see her?
- Paul!

- Did you find anything?
- Hold on!

- Easy Paul!
- Oh my god, it's so dark.

- Do you see anything at all?

Do you see her, do
you see anything?

- Nothing yet.
- What's going on?

- What was that?
- Huh?

Nothing, I just
kicked a rock loose.

- All right, I can't
hold you much longer man.

- Yeah, okay, come
on, lift me up!

(dramatic music)

(men grunt)

- What'd you find,
what did you see?

- Nothing, I didn't
see anything.

- Okay, what we have to
do is we have to go down,

we have to walk down see
if she landed somewhere

along the side of the walls.

- What do you think
happened to her?

- What do you think
happened to her?

- Come on, we're wasting
time, give me that.

Come on.

Annie!

Look, we should split up,
I'm gonna go that way,

check the river bank.

- Okay, there's a ranger
station a few miles down river,

I'm gonna go check that out.

- And I'm gonna go back
to camp, drive into town

and call the cops.

- Why don't just wait until-
- No, we all know

what happened here!

All we're gonna find out here,
if we find anything at all

is a body.

- No, I didn't do
anything, I swear.

- Just stay here in case
she shows up or something.

Annie!
- Ann!

(dramatic music)

- Oh, Ann!
- No, no, it's me.

- Where have you been,
why are you all wet?

- I thought I saw
something in the water

but it turned out to be nothing.

Did anybody come back yet?
- No, what did they say

at the ranger's station.

- There's nobody there.

Did you find anything,
anything at all?

- No, no, look, Sharon, I don't
know what happened up there

but it sounded to me like-

(dramatic music)

- Hey, got the police.

(phone rings)

(dramatic music)

- Yeah, all right
I'll be right down.

(dramatic music)

I'm Detective Baker, Miss McKay.

I'm gonna ask you
a few questions.

- Okay.

- Were you advised
that you have the right

to have an attorney?

- I don't need an attorney.

- You're waiving that
right at this time.

- Yes.
- Okay.

So, why don't you tell
me what happened tonight.

- I was on a camping
trip up at Shannon Falls

with my friend Ann
and some other people.

- What kind of a fight?

- Ann made a couple comments
about Sharon and her music.

- And this made Sharon angry.

- Oh yeah, she
was really pissed.

- Why do you think
she said those things?

- I don't know, see Ann
enjoys confrontation,

you know, she likes
to stir up trouble.

- Ann went to go find
her to like apologize.

- And did she?
- I don't know,

the next thing we knew Ann
was screaming her head off.

- When I got to the
ledge she wasn't there.

- [Detective] But she
called out your name.

- I know, I know,
everybody heard.

- [Detective] Why do
you think she did that?

- I have no idea.

- Did they do that a lot, fight?

- Yeah, yeah, I hung out
with Ann most of yesterday

and she told me some things.

- What kind of things?

- About how Sharon was
jealous because Ann had money

and she didn't.

And there was that
whole thing with Jerry.

- Jerry was everything to
Ann and it ripped her up

when she died.

- You think she blamed Sharon
for what happened to Jerry?

- Actually I think it was
more the other way around.

- What do you mean?

- Well, I loved Ann,
okay but she could be

kind of controlling.

And she didn't like Jerry
having a girlfriend,

so she made him
break up with her.

- And that's why he
got drunk that night

and wondered onto the tracks.

- Yeah, that's the
way Sharon saw it.

- Well, Sharon said
that she was jealous

because Nico was
supposed to be her date

but I don't think that
she was really jealous,

I think that she was just
saying that you know?

- But she did say that she was.

- Well, yeah, yeah, yeah,
that's what she said.

- Maybe you were
so angry tonight,

angry about a lot of things
you're not remembering

what happened.

- I remember exactly
what happened.

Look, I've already
told you everything,

if you think that I actually
pushed Ann over that cliff

than arrest me, otherwise,
I wanna go home!

- All right.

Sharon McKay I'm
placing you under arrest

on suspicion of murder.
- What?

- Please be advised
that you have the right

to remain silent.
- But I didn't do anything.

- If you do choose to
talk anything you say

can and will be used against
you in a court of law.

- I'm innocent, I'm innocent!

- You have the right
to an attorney.

If you cannot
afford an attorney,

one will be provided for you.

- I can't believe Ann is gone.

- Me neither.

(dramatic music)

You bitch.

You pulled it off.

(dramatic music)

(jail door slams)

Come on, Ann, come on,
pick up the damn phone.

(phone rings)

(dramatic music)

- They haven't even
found Ann's body.

- Hey, a defense I will
raise, right vigorously,

bottom line they
don't need a body.

- That's ridiculous.

- I agree but there's
precedence in the case law

and the DA knows it.

Look, I admit that the
evidence in this case

is entirely circumstantial
but I don't wanna risk

taking it to a jury.

- Okay, listen, I
keep asking myself,

why did Ann shout out
my name like that?

It was like she was trying
to set me up or something.

- There's sworn testimony
from three witnesses

that they heard a
falling screams, so.

- No, okay, all right, I
mean, she went over the cliff,

okay, I'm sure but
maybe she wasn't pushed,

I mean, maybe she jumped.

- You mean she killed
herself and pinned it on you.

- It's possible.

- Look, why would she
do something like that?

- I don't know because
of her brother, Jerry.

When he died she said she
didn't blame me for it

but deep down inside I
always thought she did.

- Sharon, come on,
killing yourself to
get back at somebody,

that's pretty drastic.

- Yeah, I know.

- Hey that car there.
- Yeah, what about it?

- It looks familiar, I
thought it might belong

to a friend of mine.

- Yeah, well, the rangers just
hauled it in from the park,

that's where your
friend left it.

Tell them to come and claim
it, this isn't a parking lot.

(dramatic music)

- Sit right in there.

Hmm-mm.

- Hi.
- Hi.

- I brought you some flowers

but the personnel here
wouldn't let me bring them in,

it's like I was concealing a
lock picking kit or something.

- Thanks anyway.
- Yeah, sure.

So, how are you?

- I've been better.

- Yeah, well, for what it's
worth, I know you didn't do it,

Sharon, I know you
didn't kill Ann.

- I'm glad.
- Yeah.

Now the detective made
me say some things

that I really didn't wanna say

and I know it sounded bad but
I told him you didn't do it

and I'm gonna say the
same thing in court.

- Thanks.

It's just it's
really scary in here

and seeing you makes
me feel better.

- That means a lot.

- [Announcer] Visiting
hours are now over.

- Damn, I'll come
earlier next time.

So, Sharon, if you
need anything, anything

anything at all, just
magazines or candy,

anything just let me know, okay?

- Okay.

- You won't be in here long,
Sharon, I know you won't.

- I hope you're right.

(dramatic music)

(metal clanks)

(alarm sounds)

(police sirens blare)

- No, you don't understand,
you don't understand

it's not what you
think, that's my car!

- [Detective] When
did you first suspect

something had gone wrong?

- The day before yesterday
when she wasn't where

I was supposed to call her.

- The motel in Eureka.
- Yeah.

- So you haven't spoken
to her in two days.

- I told you, she hasn't
been to any of the places

where I supposed to call her.

- And still you
didn't come to us.

- It was like Ann accomplished
a fraud or something,

I don't know, I'm not
gonna call the cops.

- Not even when it was
obvious she never made it back

to the getaway car.

Why were you trying
to steal the car?

- I wasn't stealing the
car, I was checking to see

if the suitcases
were still in it.

- In other words
tamper with evidence.

- No, that's not what it was.

- We got your rap sheet
from San Diego, Paul.

You were a very busy boy
down there weren't you?

Grand larceny, assault.

- Look, I had no
reason to hurt Ann.

I loved her.

- No reason, how about her will.

You know her lawyer tells
me you're a very rich man.

- Damn it, I told
her not to do that,

I told her it would
look suspicious.

- Is that right?

- Yeah, she said that once
people thought she dead

that that would be the
quickest way for us

to get her money.

I told her it was a dumb idea.

- I'll buy that and
I'll go you one better,

you told her it was a
dumb idea but you knew

she'd do it anyway.

And you got to thinking
about that will

and all that money
and it started to look

like the deal of a lifetime.

- No, that's not what it was.

- So that night, in the middle
of helping stage her murder,

you met her on the
bank of the river

and you finished
what you started

- No, no, no
only this time

that's not what happened!
it was for real!

And everything would
have been fine except

when you went back to move
the getaway car it was gone.

- I was worried about her.

- Sure you were.

- I didn't kill her.

I don't know what
happened to her.

- Mom.
- Baby.

- Momma.

- Please sit.

- What is it?

- We're dropping the charges
against you Mrs. McKay,

as soon as the paperwork is
processed, you're free to leave.

- Oh god.

- They've arrested Paul Lear.

- Why?

- We're holding him on a
breaking and entering charge

but he's confessed to
helping Ann go over the cliff

that night.

- He helped her jump.

- He helped her fake the murder.

- Fake the murder?

Oh my god.

Ann's alive.
- Actually no.

- We have reason to
believe Paul killed her.

- Paul would never kill her.

- Well, it looks like he did.

- The way it looked
like I killed her.

Don't you get it?

- Get what sweetheart?

- Ann isn't dead.

- Mrs. McKay that
makes no sense.

- It doesn't have to make sense.

- Welcome home, sweetie,
I'll start dinner.

- Thanks Mom.

(dramatic piano music)

(ominous music)

(dog barks)

Mom, Mom!
- What?

What is it?

- There's somebody out there.

(suspenseful music)

(tires squeal)

- What are you doing?

- That looks like Ann's car!

- Sharon, no!

(tires squeal)

(dramatic music)

Ann!

Ann?

(ominous music)

(thunder rumbles)

Ann?

Ann?

Oh my god, oh my god, no, no!

- Sharon, oh you scared me,
what are you doing here?

(Sharon cries)

- I saw her.
- What?

- I saw her, she was out
there, she was out there

spying on me.

- What are you talking
about, who was, who?

- I tried to follow
her and then I lost her

and I thought maybe
she came here.

- Who?
- Ann.

- Ann, Ann?

- Chad, she's
alive, Ann's alive.

(dramatic music)

It was Ann, I know it was.

- Did you see her?

- No.

- Did you get the license
number of the car?

- No, but it looked
like a Corvette.

- Where's Ann's Corvette now?

- It's at the house.

- Was anybody
driving it tonight?

- No, I took it
out this afternoon

but I was back by five.

- Were you home all night?

- Yes in my apartment
till I came down

to make some dinner.

- While you were
in your apartment,

could someone have driven
off in the Corvette

without your knowing it?

- Well, sure, I was watching
TV, somebody could have-

- Did you hear anybody?

- No.

- Look, Miss McKay people
know you were released today

and unfortunately until the
next big scandal blows in,

you're gonna be fair game
for every crazy in town.

- It was not some crazy,
I'm telling you it was Ann!

- And I'm telling you
Ann Price is dead!

- How could you be
so sure about that?

- Yeah, I mean, you haven't
even found her body.

- Either the jump killed
her or his brother did.

And personally I'm putting
my money on his brother.

We'll beef up patrols
in your neighborhood

in case peeping Tom comes back,

in the meantime I
strongly suggest

you try and get your
life back on track

and forget about all this.

- You believe me don't you?

- I'd like to.

- But you don't.

- Look, I know what you're
going through, Sharon,

really I do, it's hard
to admit that Ann is gone

so it's like you're
holding onto the hope,

hope that she's still alive.

- No, I'm not.

- Look, I felt the
same way about her.

She was impossible you know,
she's not an easy person

to let go of, she's
not but I think that's

what we have to do.

We have to begin to let go.

- Maybe you're right.

- You're lucky, I wished
I could have seen her

one last time.

(slow music)

I talked to your
attorney and he said

if they don't bring
you up on the breaking

and entering charges, they're
gonna have to release you.

- Forget the B&E,
they're getting ready

to charge me with Ann's murder.

There's something about that
night that I didn't tell

the police.

When I went over the
side to release the rope,

it kind of felt like maybe
Ann was still attached to it.

- So what are you saying that
you might have dumped her

in the river?

- No, I don't think so, but
I might have banged her up

a little.
- Oh my god.

- Pick up the phone.

Look, I didn't kill her,
all right, I know that,

I think she's still alive.

- Well, Sharon seems
to think so too.

- Yeah, yeah, look,
there's something else,

I dropped my knife when
I went over the side

to dump the rope.

- Your ivory-handled knife.

- Right, right, I need to
know if it's still out there

because if Ann is still alive
and she's trying to frame me,

she could use it against me.

- What?
- I need you

to find that knife.

- You wanna go back
to the park, I'm not,

no, I'm not doing back.
- You've got to, damn it.

- No, why?
- Because we're family

you idiot.

- I'm not an idiot.

Hey you tell me something, Paul,

did you ever love Ann or
was you just interested

in her money?

- I loved her, I do love her.

- I doubt it.

- Just find that knife, please.

(dramatic piano music)

(ominous music)

- [Chad] Listen I'm
glad you called me,

you sounded really upset.

- I know someone
was following me.

- You think it was Ann.

- I don't know who it was but I-

- What you have to do is you
have to go back to the police.

- No, no, no, no, no, no
forget about the police,

forget about them because
somebody's gonna have to kill me

before they give a damn!

- I need to ask your
advice about something.

- What about?

- Paul wants me to go
back to Shannon Falls.

- Why?

- Well, he lost his knife
out there that night,

he wants me to go back
and try to find it.

- Oh.

- I don't think it's
such a good idea

and actually going back
there at this point

kind of weirds me out.

- No, you know what I
think you should go.

I think we both should go.

- I don't think
this is a good idea.

- Why not?

- Well, I, well to begin with
a lot of bad things happened

out there to you.

- A lot of bad stuff is
happening to me here.

- What if we find something?

- Like the knife?

- Like or something worse, huh?

- Listen I really,
really need to know

what happened out there.

- I do too.

- I wanna go.

- Okay, okay.

- [Man] Will somebody ask
Ted were the extra gels are?

- [Man] It's over
by the keyboard man.

- Hey.
- Hey.

What about Paul in the paper?

Pretty weird huh.
- Yes, it is.

- I wanted to talk to
you about that car.

- What car?

- The one out by the park.
- This one?

- Yeah.
- What about it?

- Well, I saw it that night.

- Oh yeah?
- Yeah on my way

back from calling the
cops, it was right off

that access road
where we came in,

you saw it too right?

- No I didn't.
- Really?

- No.

I thought I saw you out there.

- It wasn't me.

- Well, okay, man whatever
but I have to tell the cops

what I saw so maybe we oughta
synchronize our watches.

- Sure, sure, you want a beer?
- Yeah.

- Go on in, drink a
couple, I be right in.

(men laugh)

(dramatic music)

All set?
- All set.

(engine revs)

(ominous music)

- Do you have a plan?
- I'm gonna repel down,

see if the knife
landed somewhere

along the side of the cliff.

- Okay, I'll hike down and
meet you at the bottom.

- You don't wanna
climb down with me?

- Very funny.

(dramatic music)

- Did you find anything?
- No, I didn't think I would.

Are you hungry?
- I could eat.

- Yeah?
- Hmm-mm.

- I packed us a lunch.

- Okay.

- Yeah, we could move
downstream a little ways

if this place makes
you feel uncomfortable.

- No, I'm not, I
think I'll be okay.

- Okay, good.

(engine revs)

- Are you sure you
should be going in there?

- Yeah, well, you
know, they're my shoes,

she was only borrowing them.

- So, buy another pair.

- They're Armani.

(dramatic music)

(dramatic music)

(woman screams)

- This is really good.

- How can you mess up a
ham sandwich, you know,

it's ham and bread,
cheese lettuce.

(Sharon chuckles)

Oh, here, here, this is
good, this works great.

- Oh, thanks.

- It's all right.

- Here.

- No, no, just keep
it, I got another one.

Hey you wanna see
something cool?

- Sure.
- It may seem a little weird

at first but you gotta trust me,

you trust me right?

- Yeah, I trust you.
- Okay.

- You okay?
- Yeah.

- Yeah.
- Uh-huh.

- Just hold on in the dark,

it's a little
slippery on the moss,

you've gotta watch out for here.

Now I happen to remember
some Indian paintings here.

(Chad and Sharon laugh)

They're not exactly
Indian paintings, okay.

- Indian paintings.

(Sharon hollers)

- Where'd that come from?

(Chad laughs)

You okay?
- Yeah, I think so.

- Okay, just take it
easy, just hang in there.

Look at this, huh,
isn't this something?

- Oh.
- Huh?

- It's amazing.
- Look at that.

It's like a sanctuary.

(dramatic music)

Come on, come on.

- I can't see the bottom,
oh god, that's cold.

I'm coming.
- Yeah,

oh yeah, it's a little chilly

but watch your step
right there, come on.

All right.

- Yeah.

- You did it, you're all right.

- Yeah.
- Huh?

- Yeah, I'm just a little cold.

- You're cold, yeah.

Is that better?
- Yeah.

(slow music)

- What's why, what is it?

- What's that?

- [Chad] What is it, Sharon?

- Oh god, it's Ann's ring.

It's the one you gave her.

(dramatic music)

(Sharon screams)

(police sirens blare)

- No, there was no
one else in the house.

- Only Nico.

- And as far as you know
the only person living here

is Chad Lear.

- You don't think that Chad.

(Sharon hollers)

- Sharon, Sharon,
Sharon, listen to me.

What we have to do, Sharon,
we have to go back to town,

okay, we should
go to the police.

I brought Paul here once

and that's what it was, you see,

he must have remembered it.

Are you okay?

- Chad gave it to me.

- I'm fine.

It's Ann's ring, the
one that you gave her.

(dramatic music)

Where have you been,
why are you all wet?

- I thought I saw
something in the water,

it turned out to be nothing.

- Detective Baker, hi.

- Is Sharon here?
- No, she went camping.

- We're trying to
find Chad Lear.

- He's with Sharon.

- She went camping with him?

(dramatic music)

(Ann screams)

(Ann thuds)

(Ann laughs)

- You got it?

- Oh good, thank
you, Paul, oh god.

(men grunt)

- What did you find?

- Huh?

- What did you see?

- I didn't see anything.

(dramatic music)

Hey Ann!

Hey Ann!

Ann!

Ann!

It's me.

Oh god, you're alive.

(dramatic music)

So, what are you saying,
you're just gonna disappear?

- Let go of me.

You're gonna ruin
everything Chad.

- You were gonna make me
think that you were dead?

- This has nothing
to do with you.

- You see I love you!
- What?

(Ann giggles)

- I'm in love with you.
- You're in love with me?

That's too funny.

You moron, you wouldn't
dare hurt me, Chad.

(Chad grunts)

What are you doing?

(dramatic music)

- Sharon.

(climactic music)

(Ann cries)

(climactic music)

Sharon!

No, no.

(police sirens blare)

- Give me the ranger's
station in Shannon Falls.

- No, no, oh my god!

No, no!

(Sharon cries)

(suspenseful music)

(Ann screams)

(Sharon cries)

(suspenseful music)

(Sharon cries)

(police sirens blare)

(Sharon cries)

- I should have
known you'd run away,

I should have known
you'd run away.

- Chad, Chad, just calm down.

- No, see you said you
wanted to know what happened!

But you didn't.
- No I did.

- You don't care about
me, you don't trust me.

You're just like Ann.

- No, no, I'm not.

- No, no, no, you're
exactly like her.

I told her that I loved
her and she laughed at me.

(Sharon cries)

- I've never laughed at you.

- Ann, Paul and Jerry,
they think I'm stupid,

they think I'm dirt.

- I don't think that.

- It was me who invited
Paul to move up here,

it was me who got
him a job at Ann's

and then he stole her from me.

- Chad, listen, whatever
happened up here that night,

I don't care.

- You're exactly
like them, come here!

- No, Chad, no!
- Come here, come here!

I should kill you like I
did Ann, like I did Jerry!

- No, Chad, Chad, listen to
me, you didn't kill Jerry,

it was just an accident.

- Of course I killed him.
- What?

- He walked right into my
place without asking me,

he picked up my diary,
Sharon, my personal diary,

he read it like it was his.

- You keep a diary,
Chad, I keep one too.

- I write down
everything in there.

I write down what I'm
thinking and what I'm feeling.

It's my book, Sharon,
it's my personal book

and nobody has the right
to read that book, nobody.

Listen, now, wait, what
gives you the right,

you came in here you read it!

You read it, how could you
come in here and read that!

You don't even know
what's in there!

It's a lot of stuff
in there about Ann,

a lot of stuff in there
about how I felt about her

and Jerry read it and
Jerry laughed at me,

he said he couldn't wait
to tell Ann about it.

And Paul, he was gonna tell
him, Sharon, I was so angry.

A lot of people think
I'm stupid but I'm not.

I just knew what to do
and I fooled everybody.

I drove him to the tracks,
I waited for the train

to come and then
I left him there.

He was drunk and confused.

He never knew what hit him,
neither did anybody else

and you wanna know something,
I was right about Ann

that night out there.

She laughed at me and I knew
that she would never love me.

That I was pathetic and
disgusting and stupid,

I hated her.

I hated her.

- You poor baby.
- What?

- Then laughing at you
like that, that's so cruel.

- Well, you're no different,
you were trying to run away.

- No, it was only because
I was scared and confused

and if you would have
told me all this before

I wouldn't have.

- Yes, you would have.

- No, why should I care
that you killed Ann,

look at what she
tried to do to me

or Jerry, I didn't
care about him.

- No.

- But what about when you
kissed me in the cave,

didn't you mean it or
were you laughing at me?

- Of course I meant it.

- So did I.

I wished you kiss me again.

(suspenseful music)

- Sharon!

(suspenseful music)

- Oh, no.

(suspenseful music)

- That was a really stupid
thing to do, Sharon!

- Oh why?

- Because I'm gonna
throw you off the rope

and I'm gonna tell
them that you fell.

- They won't believe you.

- Oh yes they will believe me.

(sirens blare)

- That was you stalking
me wasn't it Chad?

- I was not stalking you.
- Then what was you doing?

- I was getting close to you.

When you was scared you
asked me for comfort

and I liked that.

- You know what, I think
that's really sick!

- That was a nice try.

(Sharon screams)

God!

Now you're really
pissing me off Sharon.

Sharon!

- Oh my god!

(sirens blare)

(suspenseful music)

- Spread out!

(suspenseful music)

- Don't you come near me!
- Or what?

- I mean it!
- No you don't!

- Yes I do!

No, no!

(Chad hollers)

- You cut me.
- Oh my god!

Give me your hand.

- I can't believe you cut me.

- Please!

(Sharon cries)

(suspenseful music)

No!

No!

Oh my god!

(Sharon cries)

- Looks like I got
here just in time.

- Hello.

- You picked a good day to fly.

It's for you.

- What is it?

- A little going away present.

They're gift certificates to
my favorite New York deli.

Pastrami like you
wouldn't believe.

- Thanks.

- So, I guess you
heard about Ann's will.

- Front page news.

- Paul comes out a
winner, set for life.

- Yeah, well, life
is pretty weird.

- You can say that again.

Well, look I just
wanted to wish you well.

You knock them dead
in the Big Apple.

- Thank you.

- If everything had
gone as planned,

I'd be in jail right
now wouldn't I?

- Let me up Sharon,
please, please?
