(man) You find that bastard now, or I am gonna...

I'm gonna shoot my whore wife, and I'm gonna shoot the boy!

Joe, just relax,

Relax, We're looking for your wife's boyfriend,

- and I'm gonna find him, all right?
- You want to help me?

Which one do I shoot first? Do I shoot the whore, or do I shoot the whore's boy?



Huh? You help me choose!

No, no, Joe, nobody wants to hear gunshots in there,

You scare us all out here,

Now look, I've been trying to help you all day,

All right, You want me to help you, you gotta help me,

You don't know what it's like, man.

You do not know what it's like.

You do not know what I've been through.
You don't know what I'm going through.

You don't think I got the balls, do you?

I know you got the balls, Joe,

- No, you don't think I'm gonna do it.
- Joe, you got the gun,

You can do whatever you want,

I feel so tired, man.

You all right?

I hate this fucking guy,

Jeff, I'm leaning toward an entry,

We know the boy's in his room, If we move now, we got a 100% chance of saving him,

- We're giving up on the mom?
- She's 20% at best,

Jeff, we gotta move on the boy,
It's the only choice,

- This one's getting away from him,
- Shrink-wrap, don't talk like I'm not here,

- We've been here for 16 hours,
- Fucking new guy,

Everybody calm down,
We're all tired,

I'd just steer Joe away from the subject of choice, Choosing represents...

Tell me something I don't fucking know,

Wait, wait,

- I hear crying,
- The boy's awake,

We've gotta keep the boy in his bedroom,

(Joe) Shut up, Sean, Shut up!

(speed-dials number/Joe's phone ringing)

Hey, Joe, It's me, Jeff, I'm back on,

Listen, let Sean's mom take care of him, all right?

He's such a little shit, you know?
He's a little shit.

He's probably hungry, 'cause he wakes up and he just whines...

- Tell you what, Let me do you a favor,
- ... till that bitch feeds him.

Find out what Sean likes to eat, and I'll send it in,

Him and his mom can eat in the bedroom while me and you fix this thing,

- What do you say?
- Sean!

The cops want to know what you want to eat, so get in here.

- The boy's moving from his bedroom,
- (Joe) Get in here!

Our guys put him at 80%,

30,

(Sean) Hello?

Sean,

Hey, this is Jeff Talley.

Son, I need you to move back to your bedroom, OK? Right now.

- Mr, Talley?
- Yes?

Are you gonna save us?

Yeah, Sean, I'm gonna save you,

Now I know why you couldn't choose,

It's because God decided everything already.

Me and the whore are gonna go to hell.

- No, Joe, Just... Look, relax, Just relax,
- But my boy's gonna go to heaven.

I'm sorry, Jeff.

- Joe, listen,

I'm heartily thankful for all the graces I've received.

I'm so sorry for all the sins I've committed against you.

Please forgive me, O God.

And graciously protect me at the end of this night.

Blessed Virgin Mary, my heavenly mother, please take me under your protection.

(Jeff) Joe! Hey, it's me, Jeff...

And St. Joseph.

I'm outside your house!

Saints of God, please pray for me.

Just come to the window and talk to me! Come on!

- Amen.

Joe, only God has the right to decide who lives and who dies!

And he hasn't decided!

Joe! It doesn't have to end now!
I know you can hear me!

Joe, just come to the window and talk to me!

Come on, pray with me, I'll pray with you, Come on,

You are running this shit.

Tell me you're the man in charge, that'll be your responsibility. You understand?

Don't try and play me.

You get us a helicopter to fly us out of this shit.

I'm just a local paper-pusher, Dennis,

Get me a fucking helicopter before I start shooting people.

Be cool, Dennis, Be cool,

Nobody wants to hear guns go off in there,

You tell me you didn't shoot my cop?
All right, I believe you,

But nobody's gonna be able to help you if you start hurting people in there,

You'll figure it out,

When this white phone rings, it'll be me with further instructions,

If you deviate from the plan one little bit,

I will kill your wife,

And then I will kill your child,

But when I have what I want, you get your family back,

- Hello?
- Dennis, this is Jeff Talley.

Listen to me, Watch the security channel,

Dennis, can you hear me?

Yeah, I don't really know what you're talking about,

The hell you don't!
Shut up and listen to me!

Just watch the TV.
Just keep watching the outside cameras.

- Yeah, what am I supposed to be seeing?
- Shut up!

Get your ass on the floor and watch the outside cameras, Dennis,

I'm watching, OK? I'm watching,

What?

What? What are they doing?

font color="#aa5ff">(helicopter overhead)

- What?
- Talk to me, Dennis.

- Yeah, Yeah, I'm here,
- Listen to me. Listen to me carefully.

The Sheriff's playbook is to make you dead.

First they're gonna shoot out those cameras,

and then they're gonna shoot you. Am I clear?

- What are you talking about?
- I'm trying to save your life!

- I don't understand what...
- Shut up! I'm trying to save your life.

But you said you weren't the guy,

I am the guy, Dennis,

I am the guy.

TAC sergeant, pull your people back 50 yards,

(Shoemaker) Hold it, You turned authority of this situation over,

I'm reassuming command,
What are you waiting for?

Disregard, You don't give orders to my men,

Now, ten minutes ago you called and told me to shoot out the cameras, Now...

You shot out the cameras?

I give you great intel like that and you just piss it away? Way to go, big time,

I am not gonna let you step back in after you stepped out,

- This is my town,
- Captain Shoemaker!

I invited you into my jurisdiction,

Dennis says he doesn't trust me anymore,

Says he's gonna shoot a hostage if he doesn't talk to Talley,

right now,

The name of the shooter in the house is Mars,

You're gonna want to run that through your database,

Your next question is: How did I get that information?

The little boy in the house called me on his sister's cell phone,

Chief?

Chief? You OK?

Hey, Dennis, it's Jeff, Everybody OK in there?

- We're buggin' in here, man,
- I know. I know. I'm trying to help.

Dennis, I really need to talk to Walter Smith,

Smith's not talking,

Is Smith not talking because you won't let him?

- Or is he not talking because he can't?
- It's not my fault.

I've hit people harder and they haven't fallen!

I know. I understand.

You're under a lot of pressure in there,

But come on, man, I just saved your life, and you know it,

All I'm asking is that you help me save his life,

Come on,

He wants me to give up the old man,

Yeah, Yeah,

- It's your spin,
- Yeah, Good idea,

It's not a wise move,
We don't have enough information,

Look, I want to help,

But I am not gonna let you do something that draws fire on my men,

You want to help me? Turn the lights off,

Get the bird out of here,

Please,

Come on up here, will you?

I'm for breaking all the rules -

Tommy, I have to ask you a grown-up question now, OK?

OK,

If you could do it safely,

could you get into your daddy's office without anyone seeing you?

I guess so, But my daddy says I'm never ever supposed to go in there,

Shh, Keep your voice down, buddy,

Keep your voice down, Remember?

OK. OK.

- Tommy, do you like to play video games?
- Yeah,

Do you?

What kind of games do you play?

I like Monster Jam, I play Bounty Hunter, I play Wubba Zorg...

Wubba Zorg, I know Wubba Zorg,

I know that game,

That means you know who Agent Zero is, right?

Yeah.

What do you think Agent Zero would do right now?

Do you think he would say "never ever," Tommy?

No, he wouldn't say "never,"

Agent Zero would help Captain Wubba save Planet Xenon,

Are you like Captain...
Are you like Captain Wubba?

And my house is Planet Xenon.

And Captain Wubba's gonna save Planet Xenon,

Right?

Yeah, Tommy,

Captain Wubba's gonna save Planet Xenon,

Not to mention the fact that helicopters are very expensive,

Gotta pay for the fuel, the pilot...

chief of police,

You know what cops do when they retire, Dennis?

They play golf,

I don't want to play golf, I hate fucking golf,

I want a house on the golf course,
