[GASPS IN SHOCK]

I DIDN'T EVEN GET
TO FINISH MY CRABCAKES.

WHY DID WE
HAVE TO LEAVE?

[TIRES SQUEALING]

EDGAR!

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?

EDGAR?

THAT TREE...

EDGAR!

WHERE ARE YOU GOING?

[SIGHS]

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?

I DON'T KNOW.

I HAD THIS WEIRD...

BUT IT WASN'T A DREAM.

WE WERE AT HOME
AND SOMETHING HORRIBLE HAPPENED.

I CAN'T REMEMBER.

MAYBE IT WAS
YOUR MEDICATION.

I DON'T KNOW,

IT'S NEVER
DONE THAT BEFORE.

I SHOULD DRIVE HOME.

NO, NO, NO. JUST...

I KNOW HOW TO DRIVE, OKAY?

WHY DON'T YOU EVER
LET ME DRIVE?

SWEETIE, WE TALKED
ABOUT THIS, REMEMBER?

I ONLY HAD
TWO GLASSES OF WINE.

AND A JELLO SHOT...

I SAW YOU WITH MY BOSS.

WHAT WERE YOU
LAUGHING ABOUT ANYWAY?

[CELL PHONE RINGS]

IT'S GOGAN'S SCHOOL.

HELLO?

HE'S NOT ANSWERING.

HE'LL COME HOME
EVENTUALLY,

HE ALWAYS DOES.

POOR GOGAN.

POOR GOGAN?

MAY, HE BROKE THE KID'S NOSE
WITH A HOCKEY STICK.

THESE SPORTS
ARE VERY DANGEROUS.

I'M SURE IT WAS
JUST AN ACCIDENT.

WE DON'T KNOW
WHAT REALLY HAPPENED.

YEAH, WELL, I KNOW
THEY WERE ON A GRASS FIELD.

WHICH MEANS THEY WEREN'T
EVEN PLAYING HOCKEY!

HE'S NOT HERE.

I FOUND THE SKATEBOARD
I JUST BOUGHT HIM

RUSTING IN THE LEAVES
HE DIDN'T RAKE.

I DON'T CARE
ABOUT THE LEAVES.

I CARE ABOUT GOGAN.

WE AGREED IF THIS
EVER HAPPENED AGAIN,

WE'D BE MORE...

SERIOUS ABOUT HIS PUNISHMENT,

REMEMBER?

I'LL TALK TO HIM.

HE'S MY BABY.

HE'S NOT REALLY A BABY--

HE'S 13.

HE'S NOT REALLY A BABY...

[SIGHING]

[***]

[CHIMING]

[MOTOR CHUGS USELESSLY]

I'LL HAVE TO
FINISH IT TOMORROW.

THE STINKING THING
WON'T START ALL OF A SUDDEN.

MM...

THE MENUDO IS DELICIOUS.

YOU'RE
AN EXCELLENT COOK, ANGEL.

I'M ONLY THINKING
ABOUT GOGAN.

IT WASN'T MY INTENTION
TO HAVE HIM RUN OFF AGAIN.

YOU KNOW THAT, RIGHT?

I WILL DO
ANYTHING FOR HIM.

I KNOW.

ME TOO.

THAT'S WHY I THINK

IT MIGHT BE TIME
FOR SOME TOUGH LOVE.

WHAT'S WRONG?

YOUR BROTHER IS HERE.

EVERYTHING OKAY?

ALL RIGHT,
HERE'S YOUR CULPRIT.

MUST HAVE...
MUST HAVE RUN IT OVER.

THE STRING
FROM GOGAN'S KITE.

WE WERE LOOKING FOR THAT.

SO, OTHER THAN
HER KID, WHO ELSE?

YOU SAID, "EVERYONE ELSE
IS THE PROBLEM."

NO, NEVER MIND.
FORGET IT.

LET'S JUST SAY

SHE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT
GUYS ARE LIKE OVER HERE.

YEAH, EDGAR,
WHAT ARE, UH,

WHAT ARE GUYS
LIKE OVER HERE?

SHE'S VERY FRIENDLY.

SHE LIKES TO HAVE FUN.

A LOT OF GUYS SEE THAT

AND THEY MISTAKE IT
FOR SOMETHING ELSE.

YOU KNOW, AS LONG AS
MAYLON'S NOT INTERESTED,

WHAT DOES IT MATTER?

WHO CARES?

WHERE IS THIS
COMING FROM ANYWAY?

WHERE'S WHAT
COMING FROM?

YOUR SUDDEN CONCERN
IN MY MARRIAGE.

IT'S NO SECRET
YOU DON'T LIKE HER.

THAT'S NOT TRUE.

OH, COME ON,
YOU DON'T THINK...

YOU THINK I DON'T REMEMBER
THE "MAIL ORDER" COMMENTS?

[WINCING IN PAIN]

YOU OKAY?

[DOOR OPENS]

EDGAR, ARE YOU OKAY?

NO, MY ULCER
IS GOING BERSERK.

I FEEL LIKE CRAP.

I'M GOING TO LIE DOWN
AND MARK SOME TESTS.

DON'T LET ME MISS
"THE FIFTH ESTATE"!

[DOOR SHUTS FIRMLY]

NO WAY.

MAY!

[BANGING] MAY!

OH, MY GOD...

HELLO?

HELLO!

MAY!

WHAT IS THIS?

[BANGING]

HELLO!

WHAT IS THIS!

WHAT IS THIS!

[DOOR SQUEAKS OPEN]

[DOOR SWINGS SHUT]

[WOMAN STANDING
AT FRONT CRIES]

[VOICE FROM TELEVISION]:
WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU.

HOW ARE YOU FEELING?

UM...

THE PAIN IS GONE.

[TELEVISION]: NO.

HOW ARE YOU FEELING
ABOUT WHAT YOU DID?

WHAT DID I DO?

WHAT...

WHAT IS THIS PLACE?

WHAT'S GOING ON HERE?

[TELEVISION]:
FIND A CHAIR AND SIT DOWN.

HOW DID I GET HERE?

PLEASE SIT DOWN.

IF I SIT DOWN, ARE YOU GOING
TO TELL ME WHAT'S GOING ON?

SIT DOWN.

I WOULDN'T TAKE
THAT ONE, BUDS.

EXCUSE ME, MAY I?

FUCK OFF...

AND STAY FUCKED OFF.

IT'S NO PROBLEM.

I GET IT.

SIT DOWN.

WELL, DOES...

SIT!

VERY GOOD.

LET'S CONTINUE THEN.

GO ON, ISABEL.

[WHISPERING]
DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS?

[ISABEL, SOBBING]
I CAN'T ANYMORE...

VERY WELL.
WHO WOULD LIKE TO GO NEXT?

"UXOR?"
WHAT IS THAT?

WILLIAM!

YOU'RE NEXT!

AH, SHE MUST'VE BEEN
FUCKING AROUND ON YOU.

MINE TOO.

I'M SORRY, WHAT?

[CHAIR SCRAPING]

MY NAME IS WILLIAM,

AND I SLAUGHTERED
BOTH OF MY PARENTS.

[EVERYONE]: HI, WILLIAM.

I'M SPREADING DEVILED HAM

ONTO A ROLL,

WHEN MY FATHER COMES IN
AND ASKS ME,

"HOW ARE THINGS GOING
AT SCHOOL?"

I SAY, "FINE."

HE SAYS,
"'FINE' ISN'T VERY DESCRIPTIVE."

I SAY, "'HOW ARE THINGS?'
ISN'T VERY EXPLICIT."

HE TELLS ME
NOT TO BE SMART WITH HIM,

AND I...

THRUST THE KNIFE
INTO HIS THROAT.

AND IT'S NOT SHARP,

SO IT BARELY
PIERCES HIS SKIN.

HE'S...

HOLDING HIS THROAT,
GULPING FOR AIR.

THE LOOK OF SHOCK IN HIS EYES
ONLY LASTS FOR A SECOND.

THEN IT'S ANGER.

HE SAYS SOMETHING.

I THINK IT'S,
"WHAT ARE YOU DOING?"

BUT I CAN'T BE SURE.

SO I DRIVE THE KNIFE AGAIN,
THIS TIME INTO HIS STOMACH.

IT PENETRATES,
HE FALLS TO THE GROUND.

I STRADDLE HIS BODY,

AND I START DIGGING

INTO THE AREA
BENEATH HIS RIB CAGE.

I JUST GO.

AFTER A WHILE,
HE STOPS STRUGGLING,

AND I'M TOO TIRED
TO CONTINUE.

HIS ENTIRE ABDOMEN

LOOKED LIKE A SLOPPY,
BLOODY HOLE.

I LOOK UP,

AND I SEE MY MOTHER
STANDING IN THE DOORWAY.

SHE ASKS THE SAME ODD QUESTION,
"WHAT ARE YOU DOING?"

AND THEN RUNS AWAY.

I GET UP, CHASE HER,

GRAB A JAR OF PICKLES
ON THE WAY.

I CATCH HER ON THE STAIRCASE,

AND I SLAM THE JAR
INTO THE BACK OF HER HEAD.

I HIT HER THREE,
MAYBE FOUR TIMES,

UNTIL I KNOW HER SKULL
IS COMPLETELY CRUSHED.

SURPRISINGLY,
THE JAR IS STILL INTACT, SO...

I SIT THROUGH
WHAT SEEMS LIKE YEARS,

WONDERING WHAT I SHOULD
BE FEELING,

AND WHY I'M NOT FEELING IT.

[CLEARS THROAT]

[TELEVISION]: DID YOU
EXPERIENCE ANYTHING NEW

IN YOUR LAST EPISODE?

YEAH, UM...

I FOUND A TRAY OF CHERRY POPS
IN THE BASEMENT FREEZER.

THEY WEREN'T EVEN
FULLY FROZEN YET.

EVERY THANKSGIVING,
I'D COME HOME,

AND THEY WOULD BE
WAITING FOR ME,

BUT THAT WAS WHEN I WAS A KID.

YOU KNOW, I MEAN, CLEARLY,

MY MOTHER HAD SEEN
THE CHANGES IN ME

AND WANTED DESPERATELY TO HELP,

WHICH IS CHARMING,
YET PATHETIC AT THE SAME TIME,

BECAUSE THE ONLY WAY SHE KNEW
HOW TO GET THROUGH TO ME

WAS, UM...

UH, FROZEN PUDDING.

GOOD.

VERY GOOD.

WHO WOULD LIKE TO GO NEXT?

AH, YES,

THE NEWCOMER.

WHY DON'T YOU GO NEXT?

UH, I DON'T EVEN--

COME RIGHT UP TO THE FRONT.

OKAY.

GOOD.

STATE YOUR NAME.

EDGAR.

INTRODUCE YOURSELF, EDGAR,

AND TELL US WHY YOU ARE HERE.

UM...

HI, MY NAME IS EDGAR,

AND I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA
WHY I'M HERE.

[EVERYONE] HI, EDGAR.

OR EVEN WHERE HERE IS.

AND...

I WISH I COULD SAY
THIS IS ALL A NIGHTMARE,

BUT I KNOW IT'S NOT.

SO...

WHY DON'T YOU INTRODUCE YOURSELF

AND TELL ME WHY I'M HERE?

BECAUSE AS I SAID,
I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA.

GO TO DOOR 7734.

PLEASE TELL ME
WHAT'S HAPPENING--

DOOR 7734.

WELL, FIRST, TELL ME
WHAT'S IN THERE.

7734!

WHY?

BECAUSE
IF YOU DON'T...

SHE'S GOING TO RIP
YOUR FUCKING NUTS OFF.

SIT DOWN, JULIEN.

WORD HAS IT

SHE'S ALWAYS WANTED
A PAIR OF HER OWN.

JULIEN...

COME ON, GIVE
THE CHERRY A BREAK.

HE DOESN'T KNOW
ANY BETTER, HUH?

ALL RIGHT, LOOK, SEE?
HE'S GOING.

I TOLD YOU
TO SIT DOWN, JULIEN.

I KNOW.

[ELECTRICITY CRACKLES]

[JULIEN SCREAMS IN PAIN]

[SQUELCHING]

[SCREAMING IN AGONY]

[GASPING]

[QUIETLY COUNTING OFF DOORS]

7731... 7732... 33...

[HEAVY DOOR OPENS AND CLOSES]

[MALE TELEVISION VOICE]:
HEY, EDGAR.

HOW ARE YOU?

HOW AM I?

NOT GOOD.

WHY DON'T YOU PULL UP A CHAIR?

I DON'T WANT A CHAIR.
I WANT ANSWERS.

SURE.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW?

LET'S START WITH AN EASY ONE.

WHAT IS THIS?

THE STAMP ON YOUR ARM
SIGNIFIES YOUR ATROCITY.

I DON'T GET IT.

"UXOR" IS "WIFE."

YOU KILLED YOUR WIFE.

DO YOU THINK THAT'S FUNNY?

BECAUSE I'M IN NO MOOD.

MAYLON ABACAN-SCHMIDT,
AGED 30.

HOW DO YOU KNOW HER NAME?

YOU HELD HER CAPTIVE.

SHE TRIED TO ESCAPE,
BUT YOU WOULDN'T...

THAT'S ABSURD.

IT'S YOUR FIRST VISIT.

YOUR MEMORY WILL BE WEAK
ON BOTH SIDES OF YOUR DOOR.

OVER TIME, IT'LL GET STRONGER.

EVENTUALLY, YOU'LL REMEMBER
YOUR SESSIONS HERE,

AS WELL AS YOUR CRIME
ON THE OTHER SIDE.

I DIDN'T COMMIT ANY CRIME.

YOU KILLED YOUR WIFE.

I'M GOING TO ASK YOU
TO STOP SAYING THAT, OKAY?

YOU'LL REMEMBER THE MOMENTS
LEADING UP TO IT,

HOW YOU FELT DOING IT,

HOW YOU FELT AFTERWARDS.

I'M TELLING YOU,

I NEVER LAID
A FINGER ON MAYLON.

I SWEAR ON MY LIFE.

THAT WON'T WORK...

YOU'RE ALSO DEAD.

WHAT?

YOU DIED THE SAME DAY.

IT'S NOT AS UNUSUAL
AS YOU MIGHT THINK.

I KNOW IT'S A LOT TO ABSORB.

YOU CAN TAKE SOME TIME
IF YOU NEED TO.

OKAY.

I'M LEAVING.

[DROPS CHAIR]

YOU DO WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
TO STOP ME.

KILL ME IF YOU WANT.

HOW CAN I KILL YOU?
YOU'RE ALREADY DEAD.

[CHUCKLES]

OKAY...

LOOK, WHATEVER
YOU'VE GOT GOING ON HERE,

YOU'VE GOT THE WRONG MARK.

I LOVE MY WIFE.

I WOULD NEVER HURT HER.

THAT'S WHAT THEY USUALLY SAY.

WHERE DOES THAT GO?

IT DOESN'T MATTER.

YOU'RE NOT READY.

[GRUNTS WITH EFFORT]

[PUFFING AND STRAINING]

[DISTANT VOICES]

I HEAR SOMETHING UP THERE...

[DISTANT VOICES SHOUT]

WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?

ACCEPTANCE.

ONCE YOU HAVE IT,

YOU WILL FIND YOURSELF
IN A BETTER PLACE.

I JUST WANT TO GO HOME.

PLEASE,

WHAT CAN I DO TO GO HOME?

WALK THROUGH THAT DOOR.

[GASPING]

OH, GOD,
WHAT'S HAPPENING TO ME?

MAY!

MAYLON!

MAY?

SOMETHING'S REALLY
WRONG WITH ME.

I'M BLEEDING.

MAYBE YOU SHOULD LIE DOWN.

NO, I CAN'T, I NEED HELP.

WHAT DO YOU
WANT ME TO DO?

CALL AN AMBULANCE!

I'M SORRY, JUST CALL
AN AMBULANCE, PLEASE.

OKAY.

I AM.

[DIALING PHONE]

HELLO?

I NEED AN AMBULANCE
TO 621 FRASER...

YES.

MY HUSBAND HAS ULCERS
IN HIS STOMACH

AND THE BLOOD IS COMING OUT.

PLEASE HURRY!

[BEEPS PHONE OFF]

WHAT DID THEY SAY?

THEY WILL BE HERE SOON.

THEY SAID YOU MUST RELAX.

THAT'S IT?

YES.

THEY SAY TO REST.

THERE.

LIE DOWN.

[GROANS IN DISCOMFORT]

JUST TRY TO SLEEP.

THE PAIN WILL GO SOON.

[MUMBLING]

I NEED SOME WATER.

PLEASE, I'M REALLY THIRSTY.

NO, NO,

THEY SAID DON'T TAKE
ANYTHING IN YOUR MOUTH.

I'M SCARED, MAY.

I'M-I'M REALLY SCARED.

MY HEART IS RACING.

[WHISPERING]
JUST TRY TO SLEEP, OKAY?

THEY'LL BE HERE SOON.

[QUIETLY] OKAY.

[CRYING]

MAY. MAY, STAY CLOSE.

DON'T LEAVE ME, PLEASE.

OKAY, DON'T TALK
ANYMORE.

I DON'T WANT YOU TO LEAVE ME...

EVER.

[EXHALING SHAKILY]

I LOVE YOU, MAYLON.

I KNOW, EDGAR.

BUT YOU LOVE ME TOO MUCH.

[CRYING]

[GASPING AND CRYING]

NO.

NO, NO, NO...

[SOBBING]

[GASPS IN FRIGHT]

OH, EDGAR.

YOU LEFT.

WHERE'S THE PHONE?

I NEED TO TELL THEM
ABOUT MY ALLERGIES.

WHO?

THE MEDICS.

I'LL TELL THEM.

YOU GO LIE DOWN.

OKAY, I WILL LIE DOWN.
GIVE ME THE PHONE.

I'LL CALL
FROM THE SOFA.

YOU ARE NOT WELL.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
JUST GIVE ME THE PHONE.

YOU ARE MAKING IT WORSE!

JUST GIVE ME THE PHONE.

JUST GO! GO!

[SCREAMING]

[SOUND FADES TO RINGING]

[SCREAMS MUFFLED AND HOLLOW]

[RINGING FADES]

MAY?

MAY?

MAY?

[COUNTING BREATHLESSLY]

[SHUDDERING AND CRYING]

[HEARTBEAT THUDDING,
BREATH SLOWING]

[GASPS]

...DIDN'T GET TO
FINISH MY CRABCAKES?

WHY DID WE HAVE TO LEAVE?

[TIRES SCREECHING]

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

EDGAR?

* ...YOU WOULD LOOK
SO GOOD TO ME... *

[STEREO PLAYING]

* I CAN ALMOST TASTE IT--

HOW COME I'M HERE AGAIN?

WHERE?

LOOK, THE WHOLE THING
IS STARTING OVER AGAIN.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?

THERE'S THAT TREE.

ARE YOU OKAY?

EDGAR!

I'M NOT GOING
BACK THERE.

WHERE ARE YOU GOING?

EDGAR!

WHERE ARE YOU GOING?

EDGAR, COME
BACK HERE!

WHAT?

EDGAR!

OH, NO, NO, NO.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?

WHY DIDN'T YOU
GIVE ME THE PHONE?

WHAT PHONE?

YOU DON'T REMEMBER.

REMEMBER WHAT?

WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN LATER,

AFTER WE GET HOME.

LATER?

WHY DON'T YOU REMIND ME
WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN LATER?

I'M GOING TO...

I DON'T KNOW.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING.

[CELL PHONE RINGS]

IT'S GOGAN'S SCHOOL.

HELLO?

I'LL TALK TO HIM.

HE'S MY BABY.

HE'S 13, HE'S NOT--

[SIGHS] --REALLY A BABY.

[DOOR OPENS AND CLOSES]

WHAT ARE YOU MAKING?

MENUDO.

YOUR MAIL CAME.

YOU OPENED IT?

SORRY.

I DIDN'T KNOW
WE WERE KEEPING SECRETS.

WHY WOULD YOU NEED

YOUR OWN SEPARATE
BANK ACCOUNT?

DON'T I BUY YOU
EVERYTHING YOU WANT?

IF YOU NEED MONEY,
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ASK ME.

BLOODY LAWN LOOKS LIKE
A DOG'S BREAKFAST.

EDGAR...

I'M GOING TO DO IT MYSELF.

DON'T, PLEASE.

I'LL MAKE SURE
HE DOES IT TOMORROW.

NOPE. HE HAD
HIS CHANCE.

[LAWNMOWER WHIRRING OUTSIDE]

[TELEPHONE RINGS]

[LAWNMOWER RUNNING]

[ENGINE SEIZES AND QUITS]

HEY.

YOU AND I NEED TO TALK,

MAN TO MAN.

WHERE'S YOUR NEW BIKE?

I PAID OVER $300
FOR THAT THING.

YOU KNOW THAT, RIGHT?

YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT,
I'M DOING YOUR JOB.

YOU WOULDN'T,
SO I HAD TO.

HOW DOES THAT MAKE YOU FEEL?

IT'S YOUR HOUSE.

YOU LIVE HERE.

HINDI MO PAG-AARI AS AMIN--

WHAT DID I SAY ABOUT THAT?

JUST BECAUSE
YOU BROUGHT US HERE.

IT DOESN'T MEAN YOU OWN US.

WELL, THAT IS
A TERRIBLE THING TO SAY.

LET'S GET TO THE POINT.

WHAT HAPPENED
AFTER SCHOOL TODAY?

NOTHING.

YOU THINK BUSTING
SOMEONE'S FACE IS PRETTY COOL?

WHAT, YOU THINK THAT'S FUNNY?

AFTER EVERYTHING
I'VE DONE FOR YOU?

THIS IS THE RESPECT I GET?

I DON'T EVEN KNOW
WHAT THIS IS.

I MEAN, WHO AM I TO YOU?

YOU'RE THE MAN
WHO FUCKS MY MOTHER.

EXCUSE ME?

YOU WERE HER TEACHER.

YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO
TEACH HER ENGLISH, THAT'S ALL.

I FELL...

I FELL IN LOVE WITH HER.

YOU ONLY BROUGHT US HERE
SO YOU COULD FUCK HER MORE.

SHE ONLY CAME

BECAUSE SHE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE
SOME GREAT LIFE FOR ME.

OKAY...

OKAY.

SEE, I WAS REALLY HOPING
THAT WE COULD WORK THIS OUT.

I LIKE THE IDEA
OF THE THREE OF US AS A FAMILY,

BUT, OBVIOUSLY,
YOU'RE NOT INTERESTED.

I SURRENDER.

I DON'T BELIEVE YOU.

YOU WON'T LET HER LEAVE.

GOGAN, THIS IS
YOUR MOTHER'S HOME.

SHE'S NOT GOING ANYWHERE.

YOUR UNCLE
ON YOUR FATHER'S SIDE

NEEDS HELP IN HIS FIELD.

HE WANTS YOU BACK IN MINDERO.

I DON'T WANT TO BE WITH HIM.

I WANT TO BE
WITH MY MAMA.

WELL...

YOU'RE LYING!

WE CAN'T ALWAYS GET
WHAT WE WANT, GOGAN.

THIS IS GOING TO BE
FOR YOUR OWN GOOD.

YOUR MOTHER AND I
REALLY DO BELIEVE THAT.

GOGAN!

WAIT!

[ANTI-FREEZE POURING]

SHIT!

[SIGHS TESTILY]

[LAWNMOWER STARTER CHUGGING]

DID YOU FIND HIM?

WHY DID HE RUN AWAY?

I DON'T KNOW.

WE WERE TALKING.

HE GOT KIND OF AGGRESSIVE
AND HE JUST TOOK OFF.

SO, OBVIOUSLY, YOU COULDN'T
CATCH UP TO HIM, RIGHT?

NO.

I COULD NOT FIND HIM.

[VOICES SWIRLING]

YOU'RE MAKING IT WORSE!

MAYLON...

WHAT DID YOU PUT IN THE MENUDO?

I DIDN'T PUT ANYTHING
IN THE MENUDO.

[SLAMMING CUPBOARDS]

TELL ME THE TRUTH.

ARE YOU PLANNING ON
POISONING ME?

I STARTED FEELING DOPEY, TOO.

YOU WANTED TO TAKE OUT
THE GARBAGE.

WHY?

[CRASHING AND RUMMAGING]

SLEEPING PILLS.

YOU GROUND THEM UP
AND YOU PUT THEM IN THERE,

DIDN'T YOU?

[GHOSTLY PHASE]

I DIDN'T PUT ANYTHING
IN THE MENUDO.

I DON'T BELIEVE IT.

WHAT JUST HAPPENED HERE?

I DON'T BELIEVE IT.

I MEAN, WHAT IS IT?

AT LEAST TELL ME, OKAY?

ARE YOU HAVING AN AFFAIR?

[GHOSTLY PHASE]

I DIDN'T PUT
ANYTHING IN THE MENUDO.

I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO DO.

I KNOW YOU'RE TRYING
TO KILL ME.

[PHASE]

I DIDN'T PUT ANYTHING
IN THE MENUDO.

I'M NOT GOING TO EAT IT.

[POUNDING TABLE]
I'M NOT GOING TO EAT IT!

YOU CAN'T MAKE ME EAT IT!

[PHASE]

I'M ONLY THINKING
ABOUT GOGAN.

[DROPS SPOON INTO BOWL]

I WILL DO ANYTHING FOR MY SON.

[VOMITING]

OH, SHIT.

[VOMITING AND GASPING]

EVERYTHING OKAY?

LANCE...

WHAT EXACTLY BROUGHT YOU
BY HERE TONIGHT?

HMM?

UH, YEAH.

UM, YEAH, I JUST
GOT A NEW PHONE

AND I NEED YOU TO FIX IT
SO I CAN GET MY EMAILS.

I MEAN, I CAN'T...

FUCKING THINGS
ARE COMPLICATED.

YOU KNOW?

YOU KNOW
I THINK IT'S GREAT

YOU'RE WARMING UP
TO MAYLON.

YEAH.

I NEVER THOUGHT
YOU LIKED HER.

WHY WOULD YOU
THINK THAT?

WELL, WHEN WAS
THE LAST TIME

YOU HAD ANY SORT OF
A CONVERSATION WITH HER?

UH, I DON'T KNOW...

DAD'S FUNERAL?

I SEE.

LANCE, WHAT REALLY
BROUGHT YOU BY HERE TONIGHT?

I TEACH NIGHT SCHOOL.

IF MAYLON HADN'T GOTTEN DRUNK,
I'D BE IN CLASS RIGHT NOW.

SO?

I JUST KNOW YOU'RE ANXIOUS
TO GET YOUR PHONE PROGRAMMED,

BUT WHY WOULD YOU EXPECT
TO FIND ME HERE?

AND IF YOU HAVEN'T
SPOKEN TO MY WIFE

SINCE DAD'S FUNERAL,

WHO TALKED TO HER FOR
EIGHT MINUTES THIS AFTERNOON?

OKAY, EDGAR... LOOK!

NO, I THINK IT'S TIME
WE INCLUDE MAYLON IN ON THIS.

EDGAR, COME ON.

EDGAR!

LANCE...

LANCE, OPEN THE DOOR.

LANCE!

WHOEVER HE IS,

LANCE CAN'T HELP YOU.

NO ONE CAN.

JESUS, I AM AN IDIOT.

I SHOULD HAVE SEEN THIS COMING.

WHAT DID YOU MEAN?

YOU KNOW, MY FIRST
AND ONLY GIRLFRIEND

FELL FOR HIM, TOO.

I WAS 15.

YEAH.

HE DUMPED HER RIGHT AFTER
SHE HAD SEX WITH HIM.

LANCE, I KNOW WHAT YOU DID!

NO.

IN GROUP,
WHEN YOU WANTED THE CHAIR.

YOU SAID, "I GET IT."

I DON'T KNOW, OKAY?

HOW OFTEN DO WE COME HERE?

I NEED TO FIGURE THIS--

[WHISPERING] WHAT DID YOU MEAN?

I DIDN'T HAVE
A TON OF FRIENDS

GROWING UP.

EVENTUALLY, I REALIZED
I DIDN'T NEED THEM.

AND I DIDN'T EVEN WANT THEM.

I JUST HAD TO
KEEP MY GUARD UP.

RIGHT?

YOU DON'T COME HERE.

YOU NEVER LEAVE.

I DIED IN 1972.

THIS, AND WHAT'S
THROUGH THAT DOOR,

FROM NOW ON,
THAT'S ALL YOU'LL EVER KNOW.

WHAT'S THROUGH YOUR DOOR?

JUST SO YOU KNOW,
THIS ISN'T NECESSARY.

YOU'LL BE LIKE THE REST OF THEM
SOON ENOUGH, ANYWAY.

WHO?

WAIT.

YOU KNOW WHAT, BUDS,

I THINK YOU SHOULD
STAY AWAY FROM THAT ONE.

CHARLIE UMBRELLA
NOVEMBER TANGO.

KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

ALL RIGHT, WE SHOULD
GET YOU TO GROUP.

YOU'RE PROBABLY GOING TO BE
ON A SHORT LEASH TODAY.

OH, HEY, BY THE WAY,
YOU OWE ME ONE.

I TOOK A BULLET FOR YOU.

PHYSICAL PAIN
IS MANAGEABLE.

IT'S THE OTHER KIND

YOU NEED TO BE
WORRIED ABOUT.

OH, EASY
FOR YOU TO SAY.

YOU DIDN'T GET
YOUR NUTS RIPPED OFF.

HEY, WHAT'S THAT? OH!

COME ON, DON'T WORRY.

IT'S GOING TO BE OKAY.

SETTLE IN, EVERYONE.

LET'S START BY GETTING INTO
OUR DISCUSSION GROUPS AND...

YES, WHAT IS IT?

UM...

THERE HAS BEEN A MASSIVE ERROR.

SIT DOWN.

I'M SERIOUS, YOU NEED
TO LISTEN TO ME.

THERE'S BEEN A MISTAKE.

THERE ARE NO MISTAKES.

APPARENTLY, THERE ARE.

MY WIFE PUT ANTIFREEZE
AND SLEEPING PILLS IN MY DINNER.

I ATE IT AND DIED.

I'M NOT THE ONE YOU WANT.

WRONG.

YOU ARE HERE FOR A REASON.

OKAY, OKAY, I KNOW
WHAT YOU'RE REFERRING TO,

BUT THAT WAS AN ACCIDENT.

I WAS DYING.

I NEEDED TO GET THE PHONE.
MY ARM JUST KIND OF--

YOU'RE NOT TALKING
ABOUT YOUR ARM.

YOU'RE NOT LISTENING.

MY WIFE MURDERED ME...

SHE SHOULD
BE HERE, NOT ME.

WHO DIED FIRST?

DO YOU MIND?

IF WHAT YOU'RE
SAYING IS TRUE,

THEN, TECHNICALLY, SHE WASN'T
A MURDERER WHEN SHE DIED.

YOU WERE STILL ALIVE.

SO YOU'RE SAYING THE FACT
THAT SHE POISONED ME TO DEATH

HAS NO RELEVANCE?

YEAH, BUT WHO DIED FIRST?

I'M THE VICTIM HERE!

YOU NEED TO FIX THIS.

TAKE YOUR SEAT.
YOU'RE NOT READY.

OKAY.

OKAY.

I THINK IT'S TIME
I TALK TO SOMEONE

WITH A LITTLE MORE AUTHORITY.

CAN YOU PLEASE TELL ME

HOW TO FIND
YOUR SUPERIOR?

TAKE YOUR SEAT.

NOW THEN, PEOPLE.

IT'S TIME TO GET INTO
YOUR EXPLORATION GROUPS

FOR FURTHER EXAMINATION.

EXCUSE ME, I'M NOT FINISHED.

[FIRMLY] TAKE YOUR SEAT.

IF YOU THINK I'M GOING TO
ALLOW MYSELF TO BE RAILROADED,

YOU'RE WRONG.

[WRATHFULLY] TAKE YOUR SEAT!

[VOICE REVERBERATING
WITH EXPLOSIVE FORCE]

OKAY!

OKAY...

HE DOESN'T KNOW ANY BETTER.

OKAY?

[PANTING] SO JUST, UH...

LET ME GET HIM
OUT OF YOUR FACE FOR YOU.

PLEASE, JUST...

GIVE HIM ONE MORE CHANCE.

INTO YOUR DISCUSSION GROUPS.

NOW!

COME ON, ASS-PIPE.

YOU'RE WITH US.

START WITH YOUR PROCLAMATIONS,

THEN EXPLORE THE GENESIS

OF THE EVIL
YOU HAVE COMMITTED.

MY NAME IS WILLIAM,

I KILLED
BOTH MY PARENTS.

I STABBED MY FATHER
28 TIMES,

AND I SMASHED
MY MOTHER'S SKULL.

MY NAME IS JULIEN,

AND I--

WAIT, WAIT,
WAIT, WAIT...

HOW CAN YOU
SAY IT LIKE THAT?

WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

SO MATTER-OF-FACT.

IT'S LIKE YOU'VE GOT
NO PROBLEM WITH IT.

DON'T SAY THAT.

I MEAN, I HATE WHAT I DID.
I HATED IT FOR THE REST OF MY
LIFE, AND I HATE IT HERE.

THEN WHY KEEP
TALKING ABOUT IT?

BECAUSE THAT'S
WHAT WE DO HERE.

IT HELPS US GAIN
ACCEPTANCE FOR WHAT WE DID.

CAN WE JUST
GET ON WITH IT ALREADY?

I'M GETTING MENSTRUAL CRAMPS
JUST LISTENING TO YOU TWO.

MY NAME IS JULIEN.

I DROWNED MY DAUGHTER
AND MY TWO BOYS.

OH, JESUS...

WHY?

'CAUSE I WAS
PISS FUCKING DRUNK, THAT'S WHY.

AND AT THE TIME,

I THOUGHT IT WAS THE PERFECT WAY
TO SPITE MY BITCH WIFE.

YOUR TURN.

SO EVERY TIME
YOU GO THROUGH YOUR DOORS,

YOU HAVE TO KILL
YOUR KIDS AGAIN?

AND YOU KILL YOUR PARENTS?

WE SHOULD PROBABLY GO BACK
TO OUR PROCLAMATIONS.

THE FACILITATOR
WILL BE CROSS IF WE DON'T.

[EDGAR]: I CAN'T--
I CAN'T DO THIS.

I CAN'T DO IT.

YOU, GO AHEAD.

OH, NO, NO, NOT HER.

NO ONE WANTS TO HEAR THE SHIT
THAT COMES OUT OF HER.

WHY?

OH, YOU DON'T KNOW
WHAT SHE DID, DO YOU?

SHOW HIM.

[MUTTERING]
DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.

NO, NO.

[FIRMLY] SHOW HIM.

GO FUCK YOURSELF, BABY KILLER.

SHOW HIM!

SEE THAT?

EGO?

OH, YEAH.

YEAH, SHE THINKS
SHE'S BETTER THAN US.

BUT SHE'S NOT.

NO, YOU SEE, YOU'RE JUST
A SUIE PIECE OF SHIT.

WE MAY HAVE KILLED OURS,
BUT, UH,

SHE TORTURED HERS.

RIGHT, WILLIAM?

RIGHT, WILLIAM?

YUP. YOU'RE RIGHT.

[DORIS]:
I WARNED YOU, DIDN'T I?

[EDGAR]:
WHAT DID YOU DO TO THEM?

[DORIS]: I DIDN'T DO IT
TO THEM, I DID IT TO MYSELF.

I THOUGHT EVERYTHING WOULD
JUST GO BLACK AND SILENT

AND IT WOULD ALL BE OVER.

[CHUCKLES WRYLY]
BOY, WAS I WRONG.

"SUIE?" SUICIDE?

YOU COMMITTED SUICIDE?

I DIDN'T HAVE A CHOICE.
I WAS RUINING THEIR LIVES.

THE ONLY WAY I COULD
GET OUT OF BED WAS TO DRINK.

I WENT THROUGH
A QUART OF GIN EVERY DAY.

BUT HE SAID
YOU TORTURED THEM.

MY DAUGHTERS
FIND THEIR DEAD MOTHER

HANGING IN A TREE?

SOME MIGHT
CONSIDER THAT TORTURE.

NO.

NO, HE'S JUST SAYING THAT
TO EASE HIS OWN GUILT.

HE'S CONVINCED THE REST OF THEM
TO DO THE SAME.

TORTURE OR NOT,
I KNOW I DID THE RIGHT THING.

DON'T SAY THAT.

THAT CAN'T BE TRUE.

IT IS TRUE.

I NEED TO BELIEVE THAT.

NO, THIS IS WRONG.

NEITHER OF US BELONG HERE,
NOT WITH PEOPLE LIKE THEM.

OH, YEAH?

THEN WHY'D
SHE DO IT, EDGAR?

HMM?

WHY DID SHE POISON YOU?

I'M GUESSING IT WASN'T BECAUSE
YOU LEFT THE TOILET SEAT UP.

[DOORS CREAK OPEN]

I CAN'T GO IN THERE.

I CAN'T GO IN THERE.

I DON'T WANT TO GO
THROUGH THAT AGAIN.

[BUTTON CUFF TEARING]

OH, YOUR BUTTON...

MAY!

[SCREAMING]

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?

[SCREAMING]

[GROANING WITH EFFORT]

WHY DID YOU DO THAT?

WHY DID YOU DO THAT...

[BREATHING HARD]

WHY DID YOU DO THAT?

OH, NO. NO, MAY...

[***]

* NIGHT-NIGHT...

* BLOW OUT THE CANDLE

* INSIDE A BLAZING BUILDING

* UPON A SACRED MISSION

* ALL THE LIGHTS THAT TWINKLE

I DIDN'T EVEN GET

WHY DID WE HAVE TO LEAVE?

I HAD TWO GLASSES

[CAR STEREO PLAYS]

* ...YOU WOULD LOOK
SO GOOD TO ME... *

YOU HAD SHOTS,
I SAW YOU WITH GERALD.

WHICH ONE IS GERALD?

[CHUCKLES IN DISBELIEF]

YOU DO THIS EVERY TIME.

IT'S DIFFERENT HERE.

[MUSIC STOPS ABRUPTLY]

[SIGHS]

HEY. YOU OKAY?

HEY, WHAT'S
WRONG WITH YOU, HUH?

WAKE UP.

ALL RIGHT,
STAND, GET UP.

NOW, YOU LISTEN
TO ME, ALL RIGHT?

LISTEN TO ME.

I'M NOT GOING TELL YOU
ANYTHING GETS ANY EASIER, OKAY?

BECAUSE IT DON'T.

BUT NO MATTER WHAT,

YOU CAN'T LET THESE FUCKERS
SEE YOU CRUMBLE, ALL RIGHT?

YOU GOOD?

ALL RIGHT, COME ON.

LET'S GO.

WHAT?

NO, GROUP'S THIS WAY.

YOU SHOULD BE IN GROUP, EDGAR.

WHY DOES MAYLON HAVE TO
KEEP RELIVING THAT NIGHT

OVER AND OVER AGAIN?

SHE CAN FEEL IT.

I KNOW SHE CAN.

I CAN SEE IT IN HER EYES.

SHE FEELS HERSELF
BEING CHOKED TO DEATH.

I DID IT.

YOU DID WHAT?

MAYLON'S DEATH WAS NO ACCIDENT.

I WAS SO MAD.

I LOST MY MIND.

THE... THE THOUGHT OF IT...

THE RAGE I FELT,

IT MAKES ME SICK.

IT WAS INTENTIONAL,
GODDAMNIT,

AND I HATE MYSELF FOR IT.

ARE YOU FINISHED?

GET OUT.

WHAT?

GO TO GROUP.

YEAH, I DON'T NEED GROUP.

I'VE ACCEPTED IT.

NO, YOU HAVEN'T.

I CAN'T GO
THROUGH THAT AGAIN, PLEASE.

PLEASE DON'T MAKE ME
GO THROUGH THAT AGAIN.

GET OUT!

[ISABEL]: THE ANGER
COMES UNEXPECTED,

AND I CAN'T CONTROL MYSELF...

[FACILITATOR]: HURRY UP THEN.

TAKE YOUR SEAT.

CARRY ON, ISABEL.

[ISABEL SHUDDERING]

I PICK UP THE BRASS LAMP
ON THE NIGHTSTAND,

AND I HIT HER WITH IT

AS SHE WALKS
OUT THE DOOR...

[JULIEN]:
WHAT'S UP YOUR ASS?

I'VE HAD ENOUGH.

I'M GETTING
THE HELL OUT OF HERE.

[SCOFFS] YEAH.

NO, I'M SERIOUS.

[ISABEL CONTINUING]

THERE'S THIS DOOR.

THE DOORS GO NOWHERE.

THIS ONE'S DIFFERENT.

I HEARD PEOPLE.

I DON'T WANT TO KNOW
ABOUT THIS.

PROBABLY JUST
ANOTHER ROOM OF FUCK-UPS,

JUST LIKE US.

NO, I HEARD BIRDS, TOO.

AND THERE WERE CHILDREN,

THEY WERE LAUGHING
AND PLAYING.

WHY WOULD THERE BE KIDS
PLAYING HERE?

EXACTLY.

LOOK, YOU GUYS
CAN COME, TOO,

BUT FIRST, WE'VE GOT TO
FIND A WAY OUT OF THIS ROOM.

WE'D BE FACING A SHIT-STORM
IF WE GOT CAUGHT, BUDS.

MAYBE YOU'D RATHER

KEEP KILLING YOUR KIDS.

WILLIAM?

[HISSING] COME ON...

YOU CAN'T BELIEVE THAT CRAP
ABOUT A BETTER PLACE?

THIS COULD BE OUR ONLY CHANCE

TO END THIS.

I DON'T WANT THIS TO END.

I SAY FUCK IT.

IF THERE'S ANY WAY,
I'M UP FOR TRYING.

OKAY.

DORIS?

NOT HER.

NO, SHE'S COMING,
OR NONE OF US ARE.

[WHISPERING]

SHE SAYS, "EVEN IF YOU DO
GET OUT OF HERE,

YOU CAN'T ESCAPE."

WE'VE GOT TO TRY, GODDAMNIT.

WHAT DO WE GOT TO LOSE?

THAT IS SUFFICIENT, ISABEL.

PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE
IN THE RELEASE OF YOUR DENIAL.

WHO'D LIKE TO GO NEXT?

[DORIS]: I WILL.

WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

GO AHEAD.

MY NAME IS DORIS,

AND...

AND WHAT?

WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU, WOMAN?

MY NAME IS DORIS,

AND I HATE THE SIGHT
OF YOUR UGLY FACE.

I BEG YOUR PARDON?

I SAID,

I HATE YOUR
FUCKING FACE!

NOW'S
YOUR CHANCE.

DORIS...

LET'S GO!

DORIS!

SEE FOR YOURSELF.

GO. GO!

[DOOR OPENS AND CLOSES]

[***]

[GHOSTLY PHASE]

I'M VERY DISAPPOINTED
IN YOU, DORIS.

WHERE THE FUCK
ARE WE GOING?

HEY!

WHY ARE YOU HERE AGAIN?

I STRONGLY ENCOURAGE
YOU BOTH TO RECONSIDER.

EDGAR, DON'T DO IT! EDGAR!

[CRACKLES AND BUZZES OUT]

WELL, THESE DON'T GO
FUCKING NOWHERE!

NOT THOSE.

IT GOES UP.

[SIGHS]

JESUS CHRIST,
THAT'S A GOOD SIGN, ISN'T IT?

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO
BE ABLE TO MOVE IT.

SON OF A BITCH WON'T MOVE.

LET ME GET ON YOUR SHOULDERS.

LET ME GET ON YOUR SHOULDERS.

I'LL OPEN IT UP
AND I'LL GO THROUGH,

THEN I'LL PULL YOU UP.

THAT'S A GOOD IDEA.

[WINCING AND STRAINING]

YOU GOT IT?

YEAH.

WHERE DO YOU THINK IT GOES?

I DON'T CARE
AS LONG AS IT'S NOT HERE.

MAYBE IT TAKES US BACK
TO THE BEGINNING OF THE DAY,

AND WE GET TO
DO IT DIFFERENTLY.

COME ON, HURRY UP!

I'M GOING AS FAST AS I CAN.

I'LL KNOW BETTER NOW.

I WON'T DO IT AGAIN,

AND I'LL HAVE MY BABIES BACK,

AND WE'LL LIVE THE REST
OF OUR FUCKING LIVES TOGETHER.

[LATCH CLUNKS]

OH!

HOLY JESUS....

CAN YOU SMELL THAT?

THAT'S FRESH AIR!

AND LISTEN, I HEAR KIDS, TOO!

HEY.

ALL RIGHT, LISTEN,

I WAS JUST KEEPING HIM HERE
UNTIL YOU GOT HERE.

I WASN'T GONNA LET HIM GET AWAY.

WE WERE ALMOST OUT.

YOU REALLY SHOULDN'T HAVE
DONE THAT, EDGAR.

WHERE'S DORIS?

WHAT HAPPENED TO DORIS?

[FACILITATOR]: INSUBORDINATION
IS NOT TOLERATED,

A FACT YOU WILL SOON
UNDERSTAND.

NOW, GET BACK TO GROUP.

GET DOWN FROM THERE!

I'M NOT GOING TO DO IT.

I'M NOT GOING TO
KILL HER AGAIN.

[TELEVISION]:
DON'T DO IT, EDGAR.

YOU'RE NOT READY.

GET HIM!

DON'T LET HIM
GET AWAY.

[SLAMS HEAVILY]

[KIDS LAUGH AND PLAY]

THERE HE IS.

GIVE ME THE BIKE.

HUH?

GIVE ME THE BIKE.

WHO ARE YOU?

[EDGAR'S VOICE ECHOES]:
WHO ARE YOU? WHAT'S HAPPENING?

WHAT'S HAPPENING HERE?

YOU TRASHED MINE,
SO I'M GOING TO TAKE YOURS,

YOU FOB FAGGOT.

FOB?

WHAT IS A FOB?

WHY DON'T YOU ASK YOUR DAD.

FOR SOME REASON, HE ISN'T ONE.

THAT'S 'CAUSE
HE'S NOT HIS DAD.

JUST SOME WHITE DUDE
WHO FUCKS HIS MOM.

[LAUGHING] YEAH...

AW, HAVE YOU SEEN HER?

PHEW, I BET HE PAYS HER.

SHE'S A HOT LITTLE HO.

SHUT UP!

YOU GOT ANY COIN?
WE COULD GO IN ON IT.

PULL A FUCKING TRAIN.

DON'T SAY THAT ABOUT MY MAMA!

SHUT THE FUCK UP, FOBBY!

AND GIVE ME MY BIKE!

YO!

KICK HIS FUCKING
HEAD IN!

[CELL PHONE DIALING]

[CALL RINGING]

[EDGAR WHISPERS] LANCE?

[MAYLON ANSWER]: HELLO?

[EDGAR'S AND LANCE'S
VOICES OVERLAP]

UH... H-HELLO?

DO YOU WANT ME TO GET EDGAR?

MAYLON?

NO. NO, IT'S OKAY.

UM...

[MAYLON SNIFFLES]

WHAT'S WRONG?

I CANNOT TALK TO YOU.

YOU'RE HIS BROTHER.

WHERE... WHERE IS HE?

HE'S CUTTING THE GRASS.

GOGAN WAS SUPPOSED TO DO IT,

BUT HE HAS NOT
COME HOME FROM SCHOOL.

EDGAR IS DOING IT
TO PUNISH HIM.

HE DOES THESE THINGS.

IT SEEMS LIKE HE'S BEING NICE,
BUT HE'S ANGRY.

I USED TO THINK
THAT HE WAS A KIND MAN.

HE USED TO BE KIND.

MAYBE IF GOGAN HAD DONE IT
IN THE FIRST PLACE, THEN--

I'M SO WORRIED ABOUT GOGAN!

HE'S ALWAYS SO SAD.

I WISH I NEVER CAME HERE.

Y-YOU'RE NOT
GOING TO LEAVE, ARE YOU?

WHERE CAN I GO?

I HAVE NO MONEY.

HE CONTROLS EVERYTHING.

HE WON'T LET ME GET A JOB.

I CAN'T EVEN GET OUT OF HERE
WITHOUT HIM BEING MAD.

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?

HE THINKS THAT EVERY MAN

IS TRYING TO TAKE ME
AWAY FROM HIM,

AND HE'S AFRAID THAT I WILL GO.

I'M SORRY.

THERE IS NO ONE TO HELP ME--

LOOK, MAYLON,
STAY WHERE YOU ARE.

I'M GOING TO COME RIGHT OVER.

YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE I KNOW
AND YOU DON'T EVEN LIKE ME.

THIS IS CRAZY.

EDGAR, HE...

[EDGAR'S VOICE WHISPERS]
EDGAR LOVES YOU...

HE LOVES YOU.

AND HE WILL DO ANYTHING
TO KEEP YOU.

YES, BUT I DON'T
WANT HIM TO KEEP ME.

[LAWNMOWER WHIRRING OUTSIDE]

"I DON'T WANT HIM TO KEEP ME?"

[LAWNMOWER SPUTTERS AND DIES]

[BEEPS OFF PHONE]

[EDGAR'S VOICE ECHOES]

IF YOU NEED MONEY,
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ASK ME...

I'M SORRY...

I DIDN'T KNOW
WE WERE KEEPING SECRETS...

...SEPARATE BANK ACCOUNTS...

...KEEPING SECRETS...

...DIDN'T KNOW WE WERE
KEEPING SECRETS...

...IF YOU NEEDED MONEY,
ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS ASK ME...

WHY WOULD YOU NEED YOUR OWN
SEPARATE BANK ACCOUNT?

WHERE'S YOUR NEW BIKE?

MOST KIDS WOULD KILL
TO HAVE A BIKE LIKE THAT...

GOGAN!

WAIT!

GOGAN!

STOP!

GOGAN!

[SOBBING]

[EDGAR'S VOICE ECHOES]
GOGAN...

THIS IS YOUR MOTHER'S HOME.

SHE'S NOT GOING ANYWHERE...

[VOICE OVERLAPPING
AND SWIRLING]

HE'LL BE ON A PLANE
THIS WEEKEND...

[LAWNMOWER PULL-CHAIN
RINGS MENACINGLY]

DID YOU FIND HIM?

[EDGAR'S VOICE ECHOES]:
WHY DID HE RUN AWAY?

WHY DID HE RUN AWAY?

I DON'T KNOW.

WE WERE TALKING.

HE GOT AGGRESSIVE,
AND GUESS WHAT?

HE JUST TOOK OFF.

SO, OBVIOUSLY,

YOU COULDN'T CATCH UP TO HIM.

NO.

I COULD NOT FIND HIM.

MY NAME IS EDGAR, AND...

AND I KILLED MY WIFE.

HI, EDGAR.

IT'S MY FAULT

THAT OUR LIVES ARE OVER,

AND IT'S MY FAULT THAT
HER SON'S NOW AN ORPHAN.

I KNOW THIS NOW,

AND I DESERVE
TO BE PUNISHED.

HOW DO YOU FEEL
ABOUT WHAT YOU DID?

WELL, I WANT THEM TO KNOW...

I'LL NEVER BE ABLE TO TELL THEM
HOW SORRY I AM, WILL I?

HMM...

APPARENTLY, YOU WERE READY.

HURRY UP THEN, TAKE YOUR SEAT.

DORIS...

DORIS...

EDGAR, GET BACK HERE!

ARE YOU OKAY?

WHAT DID THEY DO TO YOU?

LOOK, I KNOW NOW
THAT YOU WERE RIGHT.

EDGAR!

VERY WELL THEN.

WHO'D LIKE TO GO NEXT?

OKAY, GO AHEAD.

YOU FEEL IT
NOW, RIGHT?

MY NAME IS ISABEL...

FEEL WHAT?

RELIEF...

RELIEF THAT COMES FROM
ACCEPTING YOUR GUILT.

YOU CAN NOW EMBRACE
YOUR PUNISHMENT

BECAUSE YOU KNOW
YOU DESERVE IT, RIGHT?

THIS IS THE BETTER PLACE?

DON'T WORRY.

SOON, YOU'LL FEEL THE COMFORT
THAT COMES FROM YOUR PAIN.

TRUST ME.

DORIS--

LEAVE ME ALONE.

I SHOULD'VE LISTENED
TO YOU, YOU WERE RIGHT.

I WAS SO INTENT
ON ESCAPING--

THERE IS NO ESCAPING
WHAT WE'VE DONE.

I KNOW WHAT
YOU MEANT NOW.

YOU JUST HAVE TO ACCEPT IT
AND LIVE WITH IT.

WE ALL DO.

[SIGHS WEARILY]

YOU KNOW THAT,
TOO, RIGHT?

LOOK, WE MAY
HAVE TO ACCEPT IT,

BUT WE MAY NOT HAVE TO
LIVE WITH IT.

[LAUGHS]

FEELING BAD ABOUT
WHAT I DID ISN'T ENOUGH.

NOT FOR ME--

YEAH, WHAT ELSE IS THERE?

I WANT TO MAKE IT BETTER!

SOMEHOW.

AND I NEED YOUR HELP.

[CHUCKLES RUEFULLY]
LEAVE ME ALONE.

I DON'T WANT ANYTHING
TO DO WITH YOU.

DORIS, LISTEN TO ME.

NO! NO, YOU LISTEN TO ME!

THEY MADE ME WATCH MY FUNERAL.

THAT'S WHERE I WENT.

I HEARD REBECCA TELL THE PASTOR

THAT IT WAS HER FAULT
THAT I KILLED MYSELF.

I CANNOT GO THROUGH
THAT ANYMORE.

OKAY.

I UNDERSTAND.

BUT IF YOU COME WITH ME,
YOU MAY NOT HAVE TO.

PART OF YOU MADE IT
THROUGH MY DOOR.

I BROUGHT THIS WITH ME
INTO MY BEDROOM.

NO. IT.. NO...

WE GOTTA TRY.

[DOORS SQUEAK OPEN]

[WHISPERING NERVOUSLY] WHY?

WHAT WOULD I DO IN THERE?

I DON'T KNOW.

I DON'T KNOW,

BUT IF YOU COME WITH ME

THROUGH MY DOOR,

YOU MAY NOT HAVE TO
GO THROUGH YOURS.

NO, NO.

I CAN'T DO IT, I'M TOO SCARED.

NO, I CAN'T--

EDGAR.

EDGAR, I CAN'T! LET GO!

LET GO OF ME! NO!

[MUFFLED SOBBING]

[SHUDDERING IN TERROR]

EDGAR...

[SHIVERING AND GASPING IN FEAR]

[LAUGHS]

[LAUGHING]

[GHOSTLY PHASE]

OH, MY GOD,
WHAT'S HAPPENING TO ME?

MAYLON!

I CAN'T HELP IT.

WHAT?

I CAN'T HELP IT.

[MAYLON]: EDGAR?

MAYLON!

WHAT'S HAPPENING TO ME?

SHH!

[WHISPERING]:
I CAN'T STOP.

[MAYLON]: EDGAR,
ARE YOU CALLING ME?

I'M GETTING OUT OF HERE.

I CAN'T STAY, I'M SORRY.

I'M SORRY I CAN'T STAY.

RUNNING DOESN'T WORK.

RUNNING DOESN'T WORK!

I'M SORRY.

DORIS...

WHO IS DORIS?

OKAY...

MAYLON...

YOU NEED TO LISTEN TO ME.

YOU NEED TO LISTEN TO ME.

WE HAVE TO FIND A WAY
TO STOP ME

OR I'M GOING TO KILL YOU AGAIN,

KILL ME?

WHAT DO YOU MEAN,
KILL ME?

[GHOSTLY PHASE]

EDGAR, ARE YOU
CALLING ME?

OKAY, YOU LAY DOWN.

I'LL CALL AN AMBULANCE.

IT'S NO USE.
I'M GOING TO DO IT AGAIN.

OH GOD, I CAN FEEL IT.

I'M GOING TO
DO IT AGAIN.

I'LL TRY TO HELP YOU.

BUT AS SOON AS
ANYTHING GOES WRONG,

I'M LEAVING, AND I'M NOT
COMING BACK, OKAY?

YOU CAME BACK.

ON YOUR OWN.

EDGAR, WHO IS THIS?

WHAT IS
HAPPENING?

YOUR HUSBAND'S
GOING TO KILL YOU.

WE HAVE TO TRY
AND STOP HIM.

IT DIDN'T REWIND
WHEN YOU SAID IT. WHY?

I DON'T KNOW.

DID SHE SAY
YOU WERE GOING TO KILL ME?

MAYBE YOU CAN CHANGE THINGS.

MAYBE YOU CAN STOP ME.

[DOOR SLAMS]

OH...

WHERE IS SHE?

I DON'T KNOW.

OKAY, WAIT,
THIS IS GOOD, RIGHT?

I MEAN, IF SHE'S NOT HERE,
THEN YOU CAN'T...

EDGAR?

I NEED TO TELL THEM
ABOUT MY DRUG ALLERGIES.

JUST GIVE ME THE PHONE.

I CAN TELL THEM
EVERYTHING YOU WANT.

PLEASE JUST GIVE IT TO ME.

YOU'RE MAKING IT WORSE!

OKAY, GO IN THERE,
LOCK THE DOOR,

AND DON'T OPEN IT.

DON'T OPEN IT, NO MATTER WHAT
HE SAYS, ALL RIGHT?

[WHISPERING]
EDGAR, ARE YOU OKAY?

EDGAR, THE DOOR IS LOCKED.

I GOT HER TO LOCK IT.
YOU CAN'T GET IN.

I CAN'T KILL HER?

NO.

[MAYLON CRYING]
I LOST MY MIND.

I DIDN'T KNOW
WHAT TO DO!

MAY?

SHH, SHH, NO, NO.

I NEED TO TELL HER.

NO, YOU CAN'T.

YOU CAN'T.

[MAYLON SOBBING]

YOU TELL MAY IT'S GOING TO
BE OVER SOON AND NOT TO WORRY.

NOT TO WORRY, IT'S GOING TO
BE OVER SOON, AND...

[WHISPERING]
TELL HER I WAS INSECURE.

TELL HER I COULDN'T...

I WAS SO AFRAID
OF LOSING HER, THAT I...

AND TELL HER THAT SHE NEEDED
HER OWN MONEY,

AND GOGAN, TELL HER THAT...

TELL HER THAT
I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN

THAT HE WAS
GETTING PICKED ON

DON'T TALK ANYMORE.

IT'S DAYTIME.

HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?

DORIS, I DON'T
HAVE MUCH TIME.

OH, MY GOD.

IT'S NOT YOUR YARD.

WHAT?

IT'S MINE.

DORIS,

WAIT!

[MAYLON SOBBING
IN ANGUISH]

I LOST MY MIND!

I DIDN'T WANT YOU
TO DIE!

I DIDN'T KNOW
WHAT TO DO!

[SOBBING]
PLEASE, EDGAR...

WE CAN'T DO THIS.

[WEEPING]
EDGAR...

I CAN'T DIE.

DORIS?

WE'VE GOT A PROBLEM.

IF I DIE FIRST,
IT MEANS MAYLON MURDERED ME.

WHAT IF SHE TAKES
MY PLACE?

WHAT IF SHE
HAS TO RELIVE IT

OVER AND OVER AGAIN?

I CAN'T LET THAT HAPPEN.

LOOK HOW MUCH FUN
THEY'RE HAVING.

AREN'T THEY BEAUTIFUL?

DORIS, YOU NEED
TO HELP ME.

NO, I'M NOT GOING TO
LEAVE MY LITTLE GIRLS.

I CAN'T.

THEN I HAVE
NO CHOICE.

I-I HAVE TO KILL HER.

IT'S THE ONLY WAY.

I HAVE TO KILL HER AGAIN.

[CRYING SOFTLY]

[KNOCK ON DOOR]

EDGAR?

ARE YOU OKAY?

[GASPS IN RELIEF]

[WEAKLY] HEY, WAIT.

WHO ARE YOU?

IT'S NOT LIKE YOU THINK.

GET THE HELL AWAY FROM ME.

IT DOESN'T JUST
GO BLACK AND SILENT.

P-PLEASE...

PLEASE.

[CRYING]

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

NO... NO.

PLEASE GET DOWN FROM THERE.

IF THIS WORKS,
YOU TELL HER SOMETHING FOR ME.

TELL WHO?

JUST REMEMBER THESE WORDS,

"EVEN IF IT IS TOO MUCH."

[SCREAMING] NO!

NO!

[SCREAMING IN HORROR]

IS THAT MOMMY?

[SCREAMING STOPS]

YOU WANT SOME TEA,
MOMMY?

REBECCA?

YOU CAN SEE ME?

WHAT DO YOU MEAN,
MOMMY?

[GASPS]

YOU CAN SEE ME.

YOU CAN SEE ME...

[GASPING WITH JOY]

CHARLIE, HONEY,

COME HOLD THIS HERE
FOR GRANDMA, PLEASE.

HAS IT BEEN
ANOTHER YEAR ALREADY?

[MAYLON]:
IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE.

I WOULD LIKE TO LEAVE IT
UNDER THE TREE FOR HIM,

IF IT'S OKAY.

I HAVE A BETTER IDEA.

WHY DON'T WE PLANT IT?

WHY HERE?

OH, IT WAS HIS REASON
AND HIS ALONE.

YOU'LL ONLY
MAKE YOURSELF CRAZY

WONDERING WHY, DEAR.

IT'S THE NOTE HE LEFT.

"DO NOT BE AFRAID.

"I HAD TO DO THIS.

"IT'S THE ONLY WAY THAT
YOU AND GOGAN CAN BE FREE.

"NO MATTER WHAT,

"I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU,

EVEN IF IT IS..."

THAT IS WHERE IT ENDS.

"TOO MUCH..."

"I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU
EVEN IF IT IS

TOO MUCH."

[DOOR SWINGS SHUT]

[FACILITATOR]:
WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU.

ARE YOU READY TO JOIN US--

HOW DID I GET HERE?

FIND A CHAIR AND SIT DOWN.

THE LAST THING I REMEMBER,
I WAS IN MY GARAGE

AND NOW I'M HERE.
WHERE IS THIS!

[FIRMLY]
FIND A CHAIR AND SIT DOWN.

HEY, BUDS...

YOU DON'T WANNA TAKE THAT ONE.

IT'S INFECTED.

STAY AWAY FROM
THAT SUIE PIECE OF SHIT.

EXCUSE ME, IS ANYONE
USING THIS CHAIR?

HE KILLED HIMSELF,

AND HE'S FUCKING
PROUD OF IT.

I THINK YOU'D BETTER SIT DOWN.

WHO'D LIKE TO GO NEXT?

VERY WELL THEN.

GO AHEAD.
