Curly Sue (1991) - full transcript

Bill Dancer and his young companion Curly Sue are the classic homeless folks with hearts of gold. Their scams are aimed not at turning a profit, but at getting enough to eat. When they scam the rich and beautiful Grey Ellison into believing she backed her Mercedes into Bill, they're only hoping for a free meal. But Grey is touched, and over the objections of her snotty fiance, insist on putting the two up for the night. As they get to know each other, Bill becomes convinced that this is where Curly Sue belongs - in a home, cared for by someone that can give her the advantages that his homeless, nomadic existence lacks. He plans to leave the young girl in the care of Grey and take off.... but Curly Sue has other ideas!

CAPTIONING MADE POSSIBLE BY
WARNER BROS.

YOU LIVED WITH HIM
WHEN HE WAS NOTHING.

YOU SUFFERED HIS YOUTH

AND ENDURED
THE YEARS OF STRUGGLE.

YOU'RE ENTITLED TO HALF
OF EVERYTHING HE HAS.

NOW, I'M NOT MARRIED,

SO I DON'T KNOW
WHAT IT'S LIKE

TO FACE THE CONCLUSION

OF A DECADES OLD
RELATIONSHIP.

AND I DON'T HAVE CHILDREN,
SO I CAN'T SAY PRECISELY

HOW THE FINAL DISPOSITION
OF THE OFFSPRING



WOULD IMPACT ME
EMOTIONALLY.

BUT I CAN SAY
THIS MUCH--

YOU HAVE IT
WITHIN YOUR MEANS

TO GRIND YOUR HUSBAND
INTO THE GROUND.

I DON'T KNOW IF I WANT
TO GO QUITE THAT FAR.

MRS. ARNOLD,
YOU CAME TO ME

BECAUSE YOU WANTED
FINANCIAL PROTECTION.

IF YOU WANT SYMPATHY,
YOU WON'T GET IT HERE.

YOU WON'T GET EMOTION
FROM ME.

I'M NOT
AN EMOTIONAL PERSON.

WELL...

WHAT DOES GRINDING HIM
INTO THE GROUND INVOLVE?

GOING FOR
HIS WEAKEST SPOT.

HE'S A PUBLIC MAN,
A POLITICIAN.



YOU THREATEN HIS IMAGE.

HOW?

WE IMMEDIATELY
BEGIN DOCUMENTING

HIS SEXUAL
IMPROPRIETIES.

THAT'S AWFULLY PERSONAL.

TABLE FOR TWO, PLEASE.

NONSMOKING, BY THE WINDOW,
IF YOU HAVE IT.

TESIO.

TESIO, GO AND NOTIFY ALBERT
THAT WE HAVE...

A SITUATION.

I HAVE NO TABLES.

THEY'RE ALL RESERVED.

ARE YOU FAMILIAR
WITH THE CITY ORDINANCE--

TITLE 2, CHAPTER 160,
SECTION 010?

ALL PERSONS
SHALL HAVE EQUAL ACCESS

TO PUBLIC SERVICES
AND SO FORTH AND SO ON.

IN SHORT, I HAVE EVERY RIGHT
TO BE IN THIS RESTAURANT.

NOT SO LONG
AS THAT RESTAURANT

HAS A DRESS CODE

AND THAT DRESS CODE
REQUIRES A TIE--

TIE? RIGHT HERE.

WELL, I GUESS, THEN,

IT'S TIME FOR ME
TO BE MOVING ON.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH--

I DON'T NEED THE HELP.
IT'S NOT NECESSARY.

NO, NO, NO, NO, NO!

WHY DON'T YOU PICK ON
SOMEONE YOUR OWN SIZE,

YOU BIG, UGLY CHUMP?

OOH!

MRS. ARNOLD
DROPPED BY TO SAY HELLO

ON HER WAY OUT.

SHE LOOKED LIKE
SHE'D SEEN A GHOST.

WHAT DID YOU
DO TO HER?

TOLD HER WHAT
HER OPTIONS ARE.

I DON'T THINK
SHE'S INTERESTED

IN DESTROYING HER HUSBAND,

AND I'M NOT INTERESTED
IN THIS FIRM

BEING KNOWN FOR
RUINING FRANK ARNOLD.

DON'T TELL ME
HOW TO DO MY WORK.

GO EASY
ON THIS DIVORCE,

OR I'LL PUT
ANOTHER ATTORNEY ON IT.

WHO ARE YOU
TRYING TO PROTECT?

THE LAW FIRM,
THE WIFE, KIDS.

THINGS YOU WOULDN'T KNOW
ANYTHING ABOUT, GREY,

AND I FEEL SORRY
FOR YOU.

WELL, DON'T LOSE
TOO MUCH SLEEP.

HEY, LIGHTEN UP.

YOU KEEP GOING
190 MILES AN HOUR,

YOU'RE GOING TO
HIT SOMETHING.

ALL RIGHT,
TAKE THIS STICK,

AND I WANT YOU
TO CRACK ME

RIGHT ON THE TOP OF
THE HEAD, ALL RIGHT?

FORGET IT.

HONEY...

YOU HAVE TO DO IT.

IT'S NOT GONNA
HURT ME, I SWEAR.

NOW,
WE TALKED ABOUT THIS

ALL THE WAY
IN FROM DETROIT.

YEAH, BUT THAT WAS
TALKING.

TALKING'S DIFFERENT
THAN DOING.

THAT'S RIGHT,
AND IF IT WASN'T,

WE COULD TALK OUR WAY

INTO A MILLION DOLLARS AND
A NICE HIGH-RISE PENTHOUSE.

WE HAVE TO DO THE DOING,
NOT THE TALKING.

COME ON.

YOU'RE GOING TO CRY.

HAVE YOU EVER
SEEN ME CRY, HONEY?

NO, BUT I'VE
SEEN YOU SAD.

WELL, THAT'S NOT
CRYING, IS IT?

YOU CAN CRY
AND NOT FEEL SAD

JUST LIKE YOU CAN
FEEL SAD AND NOT CRY.

NOW, COME ON. WE'VE
GOT TO HURRY WITH THIS.

WE'VE GOT THINGS
TO DO, ALL RIGHT?

NOW, HOWEVER MUCH
YOU LOVE ME,

THAT'S HOW HARD
YOU HIT ME, OK?

I LOVE YOU A LOT.

WELL, THEN THE HARDER
YOU HIT ME,

THE MORE I KNOW
YOU LOVE ME.

OK.

THAT A GIRL.

ALL RIGHT.

OOH!

DINNER.

MM-HMM.

AAH!

YOU KILLED MY DADDY!

HELP!

THIS IS A GODDAMN JOKE.

SHE'S LOOKING AT US.

GIVE HER
THE $25 SMILE.

WHERE IN THE SWEET NAME
OF ALL THAT'S HOLY

HAVE YOU BEEN?

I HIT A MAN
WITH MY CAR.

HERE.

I ALMOST HAD THAT LADY'S PURSE,
BUT YOU BLEW IT.

I HAD IT RIGHT
IN MY HAND.

TOUGH.
WE DON'T STEAL.

BUT WE CHEAT.

A LITTLE.
BUT WE DON'T STEAL.

WE LIE.

A LITTLE MORE
THAN WE CHEAT,

BUT THAT'S
NOT RIGHT, EITHER.

IT'S BECAUSE OF THE TIMES.

THAT'S RIGHT.
WE DON'T STEAL,

AND WE DON'T
BREAK ANY LAWS.

WELL, SOME LAWS WE DO.

NOT THE GOOD ONES.

STAY THERE.
I'LL COME GET YOU.

THIS STINKS LIKE TROUBLE.
GOD, I DON'T NEED THIS.

WHERE ARE YOU?

ROCKY FELLER'S HOUSE OF BEEF
ON RANDOLPH.

DID ANYBODY
SEE YOU GO IN?

I DON'T THINK SO.

I'LL BE THERE
RIGHT AWAY.

AH. ALL DONE.

SHOULD JOIN US, MA'AM.

THAT WAS A GREAT MEAL,
WASN'T IT, HONEY?

YEAH.

SURE DIRTY.

THIS LITTLE ANGEL'S NOT ONLY THE
CUTEST GIRL IN THE WORLD,

SHE'S ALSO THE SMARTEST.

WHY DON'T YOU
SPELL SOMETHING FOR HER?

HOW ABOUT "ASPHYXIATE"?

A...

S...

P...

T-BONE! T-BONE!
HEAVY ON THE MEAT!

EASY ON THE BONE!
POTATO. HOT POTATO!

THANK YOU, NO. I'VE RIDDEN
BETTER LOOKING MEAT THAN THAT.

BEAR RIGHT, BEAR RIGHT.

I... A...

T-E.

YOU EVER SEEN
ANYTHING LIKE THAT?

THAT'S A BIG WORD FOR
SUCH A LITTLE GIRL.

HELLO... DORIS.

LET'S GO.

OH. THIS IS
THE GENTLEMAN

I MENTIONED ON THE PHONE
AND HIS DAUGHTER.

PLEASED TO MEET YOU.

NICE TO MEET YOU.
ALSO.

I'M WILLIAM DANCER.
BILL.

SHE'S A PRETTY
LITTLE GIRL.

YOU MUST BE
VERY PROUD.

DORIS.

DORIS...

I'M EXTREMELY GRATEFUL
FOR YOUR KINDNESS, MA'AM.

YOU'RE A LUCKY MAN TO HAVE SUCH
A GOOD-HEARTED WOMAN AS A WIFE.

NO, WE'RE NOT
MARRIED--

GOOD NIGHT,
AND GOOD LUCK.

WE'D LIKE TO REPAY
YOU FOR THE MEAL.

THAT'S NOT NECESSARY.

NO, THE CHILD HERE

MAKES A REAL PRETTY
REFRIGERATOR PICTURE.

SHE CAN DRAW
JUST ABOUT ANYTHING.

THANK YOU, NO.

GOOD NIGHT.

WE DIDN'T GET
NOTHING BUT DINNER.

SHE LOOKED LIKE
50 BUCKS FOR SURE.

WE TAKE WHAT WE GET.

WE HAD HER, BILL.
THE GUY SCREWED IT UP.

YOU KNOW...

THAT'S JUST
THE KIND OF LADY

YOU SHOULD BE PRAYING FOR
TO BE YOUR MOM.

WHY

YOU DON'T GOT A MOM, AND YOU
CAME OUT ALL RIGHT.

GRAB SOME NAPKINS
AND USE THE WASHROOM.

OK.

OH, HERE.

HUH?

GO BRUSH YOUR TEETH.

I BRUSHED MY TEETH
IN DETROIT.

FINE. SO YOU BRUSH
YOUR TEETH IN CHICAGO NOW.

OK.

IF YOU'RE NOT BACK IN 5 MINUTES,
I'M COMING TO GET YOU.

IN A LADIES'
BATHROOM?

THAT'S RIGHT.

NO FOOLING AROUND
IN THERE.

WHAT'LL YOU GIVE ME
FOR THIS?

WELL, IT'S NOT MUCH.
A RUBY?

I DON'T KNOW.
YOU LOOK AT IT.

LOOK, I'LL GIVE YOU
15 BUCKS.

TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT.

DONE.

NOW GET OUT OF HERE BEFORE
I CALL THE COPS.

THANKS, YOU JERK.

I'M SORRY ABOUT
YOUR RING, HONEY.

IT'S OK.

I'LL GET YOU
ANOTHER ONE.

THAT WOULD MAKE ME
FEEL KIND OF NERVOUS.

WHY WOULD A RING
MAKE YOU FEEL NERVOUS?

WHEN SOMEBODY GIVES YOU
SOMETHING TO REMEMBER THEM BY,

IT MEANS THEY'RE
GONNA TAKE OFF.

IF THEY'RE GONNA
STICK AROUND,

YOU DON'T NEED ANYTHING TO
REMEMBER THEM BY

BECAUSE THEY'LL BE THERE.

YOU WORRY TOO MUCH.

WHAT CAN YOU TELL ME

ABOUT THE FRANK ARNOLD
DIVORCE?

IT SOUNDS WONDERFULLY
FILTHY AND SICK.

YOU KNOW I CAN'T TELL YOU
ANYTHING, SO WHY DO YOU ASK?

HE'S INCREDIBLY
CORRUPT.

WHAT IF YOU NEED
A FAVOR SOMETIME?

WITH THE MATERIAL
I'M GATHERING ON HIM,

I'LL GET FAVORS
FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.

LIKE WHAT KIND
OF MATERIAL

LET'S CHANGE
THE SUBJECT.

SOMETHING'S WRONG.

SOMETHING'S
BOTHERING YOU.

I CAN'T STOP THINKING ABOUT
WHAT HAPPENED LAST NIGHT.

WELL... WHAT'S THERE
TO THINK ABOUT?

IT HAPPENED.
IT'S OVER.

YOU'LL NEVER SEE
THOSE PEOPLE AGAIN.

HELLO? HELLO?
HELLO? HELLO?

WALKER.

IT'S MINE.

DON'T YOU WANT ANY?

UM... I'LL HAVE
WHAT YOU DON'T FINISH.

THAT WON'T BE ANYTHING
PRETTY SOON.

HMM...

WHAT PART
DON'T YOU WANT?

THE MEAT?

NO, YOU NEED
THE MEAT.

NO, I DON'T.

ALL RIGHT.
I'LL TAKE THE MEAT.

YOU EAT THE EGG.
YOU NEED THE EGG.

OK.
HERE'S THE MEAT.

THANKS.

YOU'RE WELCOME.

MMM, GOOD.

LOOK, AFTER WE
FINISH HERE,

I NEED TO CHECK
INTO A JOB,

AND THEN WE'LL GO
TO THE ART MUSEUM.

I HATE THE ART MUSEUM.

IS IT GONNA HURT YOU
TO LEARN A THING OR TWO?

ALL YOU LEARN
FROM THE ART MUSEUM

IS HOW TO KEEP
YOUR MOUTH SHUT

AND HOW TO WALK WITHOUT MAKING
SQUEAKY SOUNDS WITH YOUR SHOES.

ALL RIGHT. THEN I'LL PUT
YOU IN SCHOOL.

YOU CAN'T. WELFARE PEOPLE
WOULD TAKE ME AWAY.

NOT IF I HAVE A JOB AND
A NICE PLACE TO LIVE.

YOU DON'T GOT
LEGAL CUSTODY.

WE'D GET CAUGHT,
AND COPS'LL THROW YOU IN JAIL.

IS THAT A NICE
THING TO SAY?

WE WOULDN'T EVEN BE
TALKING ABOUT THIS

IF YOU'D GOT SOME MONEY
OUT OF THAT LADY.

WE'D BE ON THE ROAD.

YOU DIDN'T BECAUSE
SHE WAS TOO PRETTY.

SHE WAS TOO SMART.

AND SHE WAS TOO PRETTY.

SHE WAS IN A HURRY.

AND SHE WAS TOO PRETTY.

SHE WAS GONNA
CATCH ONTO US.

AND SHE WAS TOO PRETTY.

YOU'RE PRETTY, AND
I DON'T LEAVE YOU ALONE.

SHE WAS TOO PRETTY.

ALL RIGHT,
IF I PROMISE TO SAY

SHE WAS TOO PRETTY,

WILL YOU PUT
A CORK IN IT?

MM-HMM.

PROMISE?

MM-HMM.

SHE WAS TOO PRETTY.

HEE HEE HA HA HA!

I KNEW IT!

I KNEW IT!

HUBBA HUBBA.

Woman: GREY! GREY!

GREY...

GREY! GREY!

SLOW DOWN! MY LEGS
ARE MOVING SO FAST

MY PANTY HOSE
IS MELTING.

MRS. ARNOLD CALLED.
SHE SOUNDED PISSED.

SHE SAID SHE NEEDS
TO SEE YOU TOMORROW,

SO I GAVE HER
YOUR 2:30, OK?

FINE.

WALKER CALLED. HE SAYS
HE HAS A DINNER MEETING

AND PROBABLY WON'T
COME OVER,

BUT IF YOU THINK
YOU'LL NEED TO HAVE SEX--

THAT'S WHAT HE SAID--

GO AHEAD OVER TO HIS PLACE
AFTER YOUR DINNER.

CALL HIM AND DECLINE.

MR. OXBAR--

I REALLY HAVE TO GO.

WE AIN'T BEGGARS,
RIGHT?

RIGHT.

WELL, THEN
WHAT'S THE POINT

OF GOING TO FIND
THAT LADY AGAIN?

ARE YOU HUNGRY?

NOT MUCH.

WELL, I AM.

THERE'S NO HARM
IN SHOWING OUR FACE

AROUND HER AGAIN

AND SEEING IF SHE'LL
OFFER US ANOTHER MEAL.

THAT'S BEGGING.

NO, IT ISN'T.

BEGGING IS ASKING IN
A PATHETIC FASHION.

YOU'RE SPITTING HAIRS,
BILL.

HELL, I'D RATHER
SING FOR MY SUPPER

THAN SIT
IN A PARKING LOT.

THEY STINK
TO ALL HOLY HEAVEN.

LOOK, WE'RE GOING TO WAIT
IN THE GARAGE,

WE'RE GOING TO LOOK LIKE
WE'RE DOING SOME BUSINESS,

AND IF SHE COMES OUT,
SHE FEELS KIND,

WE'RE GOING TO
TAKE HER KINDNESS.

AND IF SHE DOESN'T
COME OUT--

WE FREEZE
OUR NUTS OFF.

YOU DON'T HAVE ANY NUTS
TO FREEZE OFF, HONEY.

COME ON, BABY.
WHAT'S THE MATTER?

THIS IS THE PLACE.
LET'S GO.

MY LIPS ARE CHAPPED, AND
I HAVE TO FIND MY LIP GREASE.

WOMEN.

AAH!

NOW YOU'VE REALLY
KILLED HIM!

THERE ARE
NO BROKEN BONES,

NO CONTUSIONS,
NO ABRASIONS.

A FEW LESIONS,
NOT OF YOUR DOING.

THAT WOUND ON HIS FOREHEAD,
THAT'S A DAY OR 2 OLD.

OH. I DID THAT
YESTERDAY.

YOU HIT HIM TWICE?

WHAT HE NEEDS IS SOAP,

A RAZOR, A GOOD MEAL,
BED REST,

AND THEN A GOOD SWIFT
KICK IN THE BEHIND.

YOU'RE CRAZY TO LET
A PERSON LIKE THAT

STAY IN YOUR HOUSE.

THE LITTLE GIRL
IS HIS DAUGHTER.

SHE COULD USE
A LITTLE SOAP, TOO.

THIS IS A MATTER
FOR THE CITY,

NOT A SINGLE WOMAN
LIVING ALONE.

I'M SURE IT LOOKS
WORSE THAN IT IS.

I APPRECIATE YOUR CONCERN,
BUT IT'S OK.

I'M SORRY.

I FELL ASLEEP, SEEING AS HOW
I WAS SO EXTREMELY TIRED.

OH, WELL, YOU'LL GET TO GO
TO SLEEP IN JUST A MINUTE.

OK?

THANK YOU
FOR COMING UP.

DON'T BE SILLY.

THIS IS THE STUFF OF
10:00 NEWS LEAD STORIES,

BUT YOU'RE OVER 21.

I'LL SLEEP
WITH MY DOOR LOCKED.

I'M IN THE BUILDING.

I CAN BE HERE IN 2 SECONDS
IF YOU NEED ME.

THANKS.

GOOD NIGHT, DEAR.

MMM!

THIS IS VERY EXCELLENT.

I NEVER KNEW PIZZA WAS
SO GOOD WHEN IT WAS HOT.

THINK BILL
WOULD WANT SOME?

I THINK BILL'S
BETTER OFF RESTING.

HIS WHOLE LIFE IS NOTHING

BUT A THOUSAND MILES
OF BAD ROAD.

OH, THE DOCTOR SAID
HE'S GOING TO BE FINE.

DON'T TELL BILL
HE SAW A DOCTOR.

IT'S AGAINST HIS FAITH.

OH, NO. THAT'S HIS
AFRAID-TO-DIE-ALONE GROAN.

YOU KEEP EATING,

AND I'LL GO SEE
HOW HE IS, OK?

OK. TELL HIM TO HOLD ON,

AND TELL HIM TO BE STRONG
AND DON'T LEAVE ME.

HE'S GONNA BE ALL RIGHT.
HE'S NOT GOING ANYWHERE.

IT'S ME.

WHERE AM I?

YOU'RE IN MY APARTMENT.

I HIT YOU WITH MY CAR.

IS IT YESTERDAY?

I HIT YOU AGAIN.

WHERE'S MY CHILD?

SHE'S IN THE KITCHEN
EATING PIZZA.

BIG TIME.

IT'S A SHAME
WE DON'T STEAL.

YOUR DAUGHTER'S
HAD A BATH,

AND I HAVE A ROOM
ALL READY FOR HER.

I'D LIKE YOU TO AT
LEAST STAY THE NIGHT.

YOUR FOLKS
RELIGIOUS PEOPLE?

NOT REALLY.

I'M SURPRISED.

WHY?

BECAUSE...

YOU'RE A SAINT.

HMM.

THERE ARE FRESH TOWELS
IN THE BATHROOM.

I'LL SEE THAT YOUR
DAUGHTER GETS TO BED.

THANK YOU.

I HAVE THE APARTMENT
WIRED FOR SECURITY.

THERE'S
A MAN DOWNSTAIRS.

I NEED ONLY
TOUCH A BUTTON.

I DON'T MEAN TO BE
HARSH OR UNKIND,

BUT I DON'T KNOW YOU,
AND YOU'RE IN MY HOME.

NOW, IF YOU HAVE
ANY DISHONEST INKLINGS,

I CAUTION YOU
THAT I'M NO FOOL.

I UNDERSTAND, MA'AM.

MA'AM...

FOR THE RECORD...

I'M NO CRIMINAL.

WELL...

GOOD NIGHT.

GOOD NI--

GOOD NIGHT.

OHH...

AHH...

HOW MANY PEOPLE LIVE HERE?

JUST ME.

WHOSE ARE
ALL THOSE CLOTHES?

THEY'RE MINE.

HOW COME
YOUR BED'S SO HUGE?

I LIKE A BIG BED.

YOU GOT AN AWFUL LOT OF PILLOWS
FOR JUST ONE PERSON.

WELL...

HOW COME
YOU HAVE SO MANY TVs?

I MUST HAVE SEEN
3 ALREADY.

HOW'S THIS?

IT WON'T BE

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL
OUTFIT IN THE WORLD,

BUT I THINK
IT'LL DO.

HOW COME
THIS SMELLS SO GOOD?

IT'S CLEAN.

OH.

WHY DON'T YOU TAKE
THAT ROOM NEXT TO MINE?

THAT'LL BE YOUR ROOM
FOR TONIGHT.

YOU TRY THAT ON,

AND I'LL COME
AND SAY GOOD NIGHT.

MA'AM, YOU'RE SO NICE.

MY NAME IS GREY.

MRS. GREY?

NO. JUST GREY.

OH.

WHAT'S YOUR NAME?

CURLY SUE.

I BET I KNOW WHY
THEY CALL YOU CURLY SUE.

'CAUSE YOU GOT ALL THAT
BEAUTIFUL CURLY HAIR.

NO.

IT'S BECAUSE THIS GUY
WE WINTERED WITH--

TAMPA JOE REILLY--

HE THOUGHT I LOOKED LIKE THE BIG
OAF IN THE THREE STOOGES.

HE SAID IT SO MUCH
THAT IT STUCK. SEE YA.

OHH.

HOW COME YOU DON'T
HAVE ANY KIDS?

YOU HAVE PLENTY OF DOUGH
FOR LOTS OF THEM.

IT WOULD BE HARD FOR ME
TO HAVE CHILDREN.

I'M NOT MARRIED.

KIDS DON'T COME
FROM WEDDINGS, YOU KNOW.

THEY COME FROM
RIGHT DOWN--

UH, NO.

I KNOW.

THE PROPER WAY
TO HAVE A FAMILY

IS TO START
WITH A WEDDING, ISN'T IT?

WELL, UNLESS
YOU HAVE A BABY FIRST.

I WANT TO HAVE 7 BABIES.

I'M NAMING THEM
MONDAY, TUESDAY,

WEDNESDAY,
THURSDAY, FRIDAY,

SATURDAY, AND BILL--

AFTER BILL.

CAN I ASK YOU WHY YOU
CALL YOUR FATHER BILL?

WELL, UM...

IF I'M, UH,
IN A CROWDED PLACE,

AND I YELL...

I YELL, "DAD!"
50 GUYS TURN AROUND.

I YELL, "BILL,"
AND MAYBE 2 TURN AROUND.

IT'S A TIMESAVER,
REALLY.

WELL, YOU BETTER
GET SOME SLEEP.

GOOD NIGHT.

EXCUSE ME. WHERE IS THE GUY
YOU WERE WITH YESTERDAY?

HE HAD TO WORK LATE.

IS HE A COP?

NO.

GOOD NIGHT.

MA'AM?

YES?

I BET
HE LOVES YOU A LOT.

I HOPE SO.

GOOD NIGHT.

WELL, I KNOW
HOW YOU CAN TELL.

HOW?

HE LETS YOU EAT FIRST.

SWEET DREAMS.

HI.

HI.

YOU OK?

OH, YEAH. I'M FINE.

I MEAN, I FEEL LIKE
I GOT HIT BY A CAR.

YOU GOT HIT BY A CAR.

YOU OK?

YEAH.

COME HERE.

WHAT'S THE MATTER,
BABY?

I'VE NEVER SLEPT BY MYSELF
SINCE I WAS A BABY.

OH, YOU'LL LOVE IT.

YOU DON'T GET KICKED
SO MUCH.

BUT WHAT IF I GET SCARED?

WELL...

THERE'S NO REASON
TO BE SCARED.

KNOW WHY?

HMM.

BECAUSE
WHEN YOU'RE ALONE,

ANGELS
COME TO THE WINDOW.

YOU OPEN IT UP,

THEY FLOAT INTO THE ROOM
OVER YOUR BED,

AND IF
YOU'RE ASLEEP,

THEY'LL COME DOWN

AND KISS
YOUR EYELIDS,

AND THEY GIVE YOU
THE SWEETEST,

MOST WONDERFUL DREAMS
YOU'LL EVER HAVE.

IS THIS TRUE?

SURE, IT'S TRUE.

YOU SURE?

YEAH. NOW, COME HERE,
GIVE ME A HUG.

COME ON.

LOVE YOU, BILL.

OH, BABY.

I LOVE YOU, TOO,
HONEY.

YOU KNOW, WE'RE
VERY LUCKY TODAY.

YOU GO TO BED.

OK.

ALL RIGHT?
GET SOME REST.

OK.

GO ON.

WE HAVE NOW COME TO THE END
OF OUR PROGRAM DAY,

AND WE'LL JOIN YOU
TOMORROW

AT THE REGULARLY
SCHEDULED TIME.

GOOD NIGHT.

Curly Sue:
* OH, SAY, CAN YOU SEE *

* BY THE DAWN'S
EARLY LIGHT *

* WHAT SO PROUDLY
WE HAILED *

* AT THE TWILIGHT'S
LAST GLEAMING *

* WHOSE BROAD STRIPES
AND BRIGHT STARS *

* THROUGH
THE PERILOUS FIGHT *

* O'ER THE RAMPARTS
WE WATCHED *

* WERE SO GALLANTLY
STREAMING *

* AND THE ROCKETS'
RED GLARE *

* THE BOMBS BURSTING
IN AIR *

* GAVE PROOF
THROUGH THE NIGHT *

* THAT OUR FLAG
WAS STILL THERE *

* OH, SAY,
DOES THAT STAR-SPANGLED *

* BANNER YET WAVE *

* O'ER THE LAND
OF THE FREE *

* AND THE HOME
OF THE BRAVE *

PLAY BALL.

SHOOT.

SHE'S MAD.

AAH!

AAH!

AAH! AAH!

AAH!

AAH!

AAH!

AAH!

AAH!

AAH!

YOU'RE NUTS!

WILL YOU KEEP
YOUR VOICE DOWN?

AM I HALLUCINATING?

YOU HAVE 2 DERELICTS
IN YOUR APARTMENT.

IT'S A LONG STORY.

AND A WEIRD ONE,

WHICH I'M PUTTING A STOP TO
AS SOON I CAN FOCUS MY EYES.

I'M SORRY I HIT YOU.
I DIDN'T RECOGNIZE YOU.

THAT SPEAKS WELL
FOR OUR RELATIONSHIP.

I WAS RIPPED FROM MY SLEEP
BY A SCREAMING CHILD!

SPEAKING OF WHICH,
THAT GODDAMN LITTLE URCHIN

GAVE ME A POP YOU
WOULDN'T BELIEVE.

KNUCKLE PUNCH
RIGHT IN THE NOSE.

I ASKED YOU TO KEEP
YOUR VOICE DOWN!

AND I TOLD
YOU LAST NIGHT

YOU WERE
ITCHING FOR IT,

BUYING
THOSE TWO FOOD.

HOW THE HELL DID
THEY END UP HERE?

I HIT HIM WITH MY CAR AGAIN.

EXACTLY WHAT TIME
WERE YOU BORN YESTERDAY?

IT'S CRAZY,
BUT IT'S TRUE.

DID IT EVER OCCUR TO YOU
THAT THIS MONKEY

MIGHT BE THROWING HIMSELF
IN FRONT OF YOUR CAR?

JIG'S UP, BILL.

YOU ARE AN EDUCATED WOMAN

IN A POSITION
OF RESPONSIBILITY

IN MAJOR LAW FIRM
MAKING A TREMENDOUS LIVING.

WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU?

WHAT POSSESSED YOU TO INVITE
VAGABONDS INTO YOUR HOME?

I'M NOT STUPID!

I HAD MY BEDROOM DOOR
LOCKED.

OH, GEE. THEN YOU
WERE PERFECTLY SAFE.

I DIDN'T SENSE
ANY DANGER.

IF I HAD, I WOULDN'T
HAVE DONE IT.

NO DANGER?! I GOT SLUGGED TWICE
IN 5 SECONDS!

THAT WAS
AN ACCIDENT!

I'M SURE WHEN
YOU GOT INTO BED,

YOU SCARED THE LIVING
HELL OUT OF CURLY SUE.

CURLY SUE?
OH, THAT'S CUTE.

WHAT IS SHE,
THE LOST STOOGE?

LOOK, I DON'T KNOW
WHAT THE HELL

IS GOING ON HERE,

AND I SURE
CAN'T EXPLAIN IT

IN WORDS YOU'D UNDERSTAND.

ENGLISH, FRENCH, HEBREW,
MANDARIN IT'D BE THE SAME.

YOU'RE NUTS!
YOU'RE NUTS!

YOU'RE NUTS!

AND YOU'RE ABUSIVE!

AND INSENSITIVE!
INSENSITIVE! INSENSITIVE!

DON'T GET HOLY WITH ME JUST
BECAUSE YOU'VE ENDANGERED

YOUR LIFE FOR NO GODDAMN
APPARENT REASON!

YOU CAN
LET YOURSELF OUT.

OH, NO! I'M NOT LEAVING YOU HERE
ALONE WITH THEM IN THE HOUSE.

NO WAY, BABE.

THEN SLEEP
ON THE SOFA.

THE GUEST ROOMS
ARE TAKEN!

HI.

AAH!

ANISE?

COULD YOU PLEASE CALL
MY HOUSEKEEPER

AND LET HER KNOW I HAVE GUESTS
SO SHE'S NOT ALARMED?

ALL RIGHT, JUST
TO MAKE THIS FAIR,

MAKE SURE THERE'S
NO SUSPICION,

I'M GOING TO ALLOW
THE LITTLE LADY TO DEAL.

OK?

OK.

DEAL, HONEY.

THAT SEEMS FAIR.

SHUFFLE 'EM UP.

SHE'S GOTTEN BETTER.

OK.

WHY DON'T YOU DEAL?

I'M GONNA RAISE 10.

10. OK.

I'LL STAY. YOU TOOK
HALF MY PAYCHECK ALREADY.

BUT IF YOU WIN,

I'LL WORK FOR
YOU FOR A WEEK.

CRYBABIES NEVER WIN, LADY.

SHUT UP. YOU CAN BARELY SEE
OVER THE TABLE.

I MAY NOT BE ABLE
TO SEE OVER THE TABLE,

BUT I HAVE THE OTHER HALF
OF YOUR PAYCHECK.

BILL?

IT'S THE MISSIS!

TRINA?

TRINA!

I'M HOME!

WHAT IS GOING ON?

OPEN THE DOOR, PLEASE!

TRINA!

TRINA!

OPEN THE DOOR!

WHY WAS THE DOOR LOCKED?

UM... THE CHILD
MUST HAVE DONE IT.

OH.

YEAH.

HOW'S THE GENTLEMAN?

OH, HE'S REALLY SICK.

YEAH, HE'S REALLY...

I ONLY SAW HIM FOR
A SECOND THIS MORNING.

I WENT IN THERE,
AND HE WAS JUST...

OOH, GOD, HE'S, LIKE, ALL
SWEATING AND EVERYTHING.

I JUST KEPT RUNNING
BY THERE TODAY.

I WOULDN'T EVEN GO IN.

HE'D BE GROANING AND MAKING
ALL SORTS OF NOISE.

KIND OF FREAKS ME OUT.

DO YOU SMOKE CIGARS?

YEAH.

I WISH YOU WOULDN'T
IN MY HOME.

YEAH.
I UNDERSTAND THAT.

THAT'S--
THAT'S REASONABLE.

SEE, I DON'T USUALLY
SMOKE CIGARS,

IT WAS JUST THAT
MY FRIEND HAD A BABY.

YOUR DAD
SURE ATE A LOT

FOR SOMEONE
WHO DOESN'T FEEL WELL.

WELL, HE'S LIKE
A CAMEL WITH A HUMP.

YOU KNOW HOW CAMELS

KEEP FOOD AND WATER
IN THEIR HUMPS?

ONLY HIS HUMP
IS HIS STOMACH.

I'M SURE
HE FEELS AWFUL,

BUT WHEN YOU GOT A CHANCE
TO LOAD THE HUMP,

YOU LOAD THE HUMP.
THAT'S OUR PHILOSOPHY.

YOU'RE
A SMART LITTLE GIRL.

I'M VERY SMART.

I KNOW
A LOT OF STUFF.

DO YOU KNOW
HOW TO READ?

SURE. I CAN
ALSO DO MATH

AND SPELL EXTREMELY
LARGE WORDS.

LIKE ASPHYXIATE?

YEAH.

A-S-P-H-Y-X--

TRY A SMALL ONE.

EXCUSE ME?

SPELL "CAT."

I WILL LATER.

HOW ABOUT RIGHT NOW?

I CAN'T.

JUST AS I THOUGHT.

HI.

WHAT'S GOING ON?

WELL, I'M,
UH... RECUPERATING.

KNOCK IT OFF.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING
WITH THAT LITTLE GIRL?

WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

HAS SHE EVER
BEEN TO SCHOOL?

BRIEFLY,
FROM TIME TO TIME.

SHE'S COMPLETELY
IGNORANT.

SHE'S NOT IGNORANT.

SHE'S ILLITERATE.

THAT'S NOT IGNORANT.

YOU'RE USING HER,
AREN'T YOU?

NO, MA'AM.

LIAR. YOU USE HER
IN YOUR LITTLE CONS.

IT'S PATHETIC.
IT'S CRIMINAL.

I GUESS
IT'S TIME TO GO.

GO AHEAD.
YOU'RE NOT TAKING HER.

YOU'RE GOING
TO STOP ME?

THE POLICE WILL.

YOU'RE GOING TO
CALL THE POLICE?

YOU'RE NOT TAKING
HER OUT OF HERE.

YOU'RE LEAVING,
AND SHE'S STAYING.

YOU DON'T KNOW
A THING ABOUT THIS.

I KNOW NEGLECT
WHEN I SEE IT.

SHE'S NOT NEGLECTED.

SHE'S ABUSED.

I AM VERY SERIOUS,
MR. DANCER.

KISS MY ASS, LADY.

I'VE RAISED THAT KID
FROM A BABY.

WE'VE BEAT WORSE THINGS

THAN SOME DO-GOOD
HIGH-RISE LEGAL EAGLE

WITH A JONES FOR ARM'S
LENGTH SOCIAL REFORM.

NOW STEP ASIDE
BEFORE I THROW

YOUR PAMPERED ASS
IN THE CLOSET.

YOU DON'T SCARE ME.

I GOT NOTHING TO LOSE
BUT THAT KID.

YOU TRY TAKING THAT KID
AWAY FROM ME,

I'M GOING TO KNOCK
YOUR DAMN HEAD OFF.

IF YOU LOVE HER...

GIVE HER A CHANCE.

OK.

HOW?

HMM?

THE STATE OF ILLINOIS,

THEY KNOW
WHAT'S RIGHT FOR HER?

SURE, THEY'LL TEACH
HOW HER TO READ,

THEY'LL TEACH HER
HOW TO BE A FREAK.

AND WHEN PEOPLE
BITCH ABOUT WELFARE,

THEY'RE GONNA BE
BITCHING ABOUT HER.

BILL, YOU CAN'T
FEED HER.

YOU CAN'T CLOTHE HER.

HOW DO YOU KNOW SHE'S NOT GONNA
FREEZE TO DEATH SOME NIGHT

OR GET BEAT UP
OR KIDNAPPED?

WHAT IF SOMETHING
HAPPENS TO YOU

AND SHE ENDS UP IN
THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE?

I GET BY. I SURVIVE.

I'VE BEEN DOING IT
HER WHOLE LIFE.

WHERE'S HER MOTHER?

SHE'S BURIED IN FLORIDA.

YOU WANT TO KNOW
THE REST OF THE STORY?

I'M NOT HER FATHER.

I MET HER MOTHER
ONE NIGHT IN A BAR.

SOME PEOPLE GET VD
FROM A ONE-NIGHT STAND,

I GOT A BABY.

SHE KNOWS ALL ABOUT IT.
WE GOT NO SECRETS.

IF THERE WAS
ANOTHER LIFE FOR HER,

I'D CUT MY THROAT
TO GIVE IT TO HER.

I DIDN'T COME IN HERE
TO RUIN YOUR LIFE.

OUR PATHS CROSSED,
AND YOU ENDED UP HERE.

YOU'RE RIGHT.

YOU GOT SCAMMED.

I GOT
A KNOCK ON THE HEAD,

AND THE REST IS BULL.

I GOT A LOT OF TRICKS.
I BEEN AT IT A LONG TIME.

YOU PLAY SOMETHING
UNTIL IT'S OVER...

AND THIS IS OVER.

NO TEARS.

I MUST BE CRAZY.

STAY AS LONG
AS YOU LIKE.

I'M SORRY.

YOU BETTER GO TO SLEEP.

DID BILL GIVE ME TO YOU?

NO.

HE'S ALWAYS LOOKING
FOR SOMEBODY.

A FATHER ALWAYS LOOKS

FOR THE BEST LIFE
HE CAN GIVE HIS CHILD.

THERE'S NOTHING WRONG
WITH MY LIFE.

I DIDN'T MEAN THAT.

IT'S JUST THAT
AS YOU GROW UP

AND BECOME A YOUNG LADY,

THERE ARE GOING
TO BE, WELL...

THINGS...

AND SITUATIONS THAT WILL
BE DIFFICULT FOR A MAN.

ALL THE STUFF
THAT HAPPENS TO WOMEN,

I ALREADY KNOW.

THE BOOBS, THE KISSING,
THE BABIES,

THE CRABBY TIME,

THE NOT WEARING
LIPSTICK TILL YOU'RE 16,

THE UNDERWEAR BANK ROBBERS
WEAR ON THEIR FACES.

THERE'S A LITTLE MORE
TO IT THAN THAT.

HALF OF IT,
I DON'T CARE FOR--

PINK DRESSES
AND KITTENS,

SPENDING ALL THE TIME
IN YOUR BATHROOM,

CRYING WHEN SOMETHING'S
REAL CUTE

FRANKLY MAKES ME
LOSE MY BELLY.

WELL...

YOU'RE A VERY
SMART LITTLE GIRL

WHO KNOWS HERSELF
VERY WELL.

BUT I PROMISE YOU,
THERE WILL COME A TIME

WHEN YOU'LL WISH
YOU HAD A WOMAN TO TALK TO.

I DOUBT IT.

OK.

WELL...

WE TALKED ABOUT IT,

AND, UM, YOU CAN
THINK ABOUT IT.

AND IF YOU FEEL YOU HAVE
THE NEED TO DISCUSS IT...

BILL WILL
TAKE CARE OF IT.

OH.

WELL, BETTER
GET SOME SLEEP.

WELL...

GOOD NIGHT.

DO YOU MIND IF I WATCH
TV FOR A WHILE?

FOR A LITTLE WHILE.

[DUDLEY DO-RIGHT
THEME PLAYS]

DID YOU SEE BILL
THIS MORNING?

NOPE.

WHAT TIME
DID YOU GET UP?

IT WAS STILL DARK.

WHAT'S WRONG?

HE'S GONE.

DID HE LEAVE A NOTE?

NO.

DID HE LEAVE A RING?

A LITTLE ONE?

NO.

THEN HE'LL BE BACK.

I HOPE YOU KNOW YOU'RE
MAKING ME MISS FLIPPER.

YOU GOT TO WORK.

IF YOU DON'T GO TO SCHOOL,
YOU HAVE TO WORK.

EVERYBODY'S GOT TO DO SOMETHING
WHEN THEY GET BIG.

I'M NOT GONNA BE
A BATHTUB WASHER.

OH, WELL, REALLY?
WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO BE, THEN?

MAYBE A LAWYER.

YOU KNOW HOW LONG YOU HAVE TO GO
TO SCHOOL TO BE A LAWYER?

HOW LONG?

20 YEARS.

SLAP MY BUTT.
NO WAY.

DO YOU WANT TO SAVE
YOUR MARRIAGE?

WHAT ABOUT THE PICTURES
AND THE TAPE RECORDINGS?

IT'S TERRIBLE,
IT'S DISGUSTING,

BUT BEFORE WE GO ON,
I NEED TO KNOW.

DO YOU WANT TO LEAVE HIM?

THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT.

WELL, LET'S WORK ON THAT.

ARE YOU ALL RIGHT?

YOU SEEM A LITTLE...

NICE.

THANKS.

HOW WAS YOUR DAY?

TOTAL PISSER.

I'M TOO TIRED
TO LECTURE YOU

ABOUT USING THAT KIND
OF LANGUAGE.

SORRY.
IT SLIPPED OUT.

DID BILL CALL?

NOPE.

SHOULDN'T HE
BE HOME BY NOW?

HELLO?

HI.

HI.

GUESS WHAT.

I GOT A JOB.

OH...

GREAT.

YEAH. IT'S
NOT A GREAT JOB,

BUT IT'S WORK.

I GET MY FIRST
PAYCHECK IN A WEEK.

I HAVEN'T DONE THAT
IN A LONG TIME.

WELL,
I'M VERY PROUD OF YOU.

YEAH?

WELL, IT WAS
NO BIG DEAL, REALLY,

BUT IT JUST FEELS BETTER
TO BE WORKING, YOU KNOW?

I KNOW.

HEY, WHAT'S
YOUR PROBLEM?

YOU.

SHE DOESN'T TAKE
TO CHANGE VERY WELL.

SHE'LL BE ALL RIGHT.

MAY I HELP YOU?

MAY I HELP YOU?

MAY WE HELP YOU?

OHH...

I FEEL LIKE AN IDIOT.

YOU LOOK VERY PRETTY.

VERY, VERY...

WHERE ARE THE SHOES
I GAVE YOU?

SHE'S GOT NICE HAIR.

THESE?

MM-HMM.

THESE TIGHTS ITCH.

PANTS. WHAT ARE THESE?

THESE THINGS
STICK TO YOUR BUTT.

BILL?

IS EVERYTHING
ALL RIGHT?

I FEEL LIKE
A GODDAMN FOOL.

CAN IT BE
THAT BAD?

YOU LOOK GREAT!

THINK SO?

WOW.

OH--UH--YOU...

YOU'VE GOT
A TAG ON YOUR...

OH.

OHH.

YOU DON'T NEED IT.

I NEED IT FOR SUE.

SHE GETS A RUNNY NOSE.

YOU LOOK REALLY PRETTY.

THANK YOU.

SO, UH...
YOU HUNGRY?

YEAH. LET'S EAT.

I HATE THIS.

THIS LOBSTER'S GOOD.

IT'S DELICIOUS.

OHH, GOOD EVENING.

KISS, KISS.

MMM...
MMM...

THESE ARE MY FRIENDS.

WILLIAM DANCER
AND HIS DAUGHTER SUSAN.

AHH...

OHH...

WHAT A LOVELY
LITTLE GIRL YOU ARE.

MAY I?

MAY YOU WHAT?

KISS YOUR CHEEK.

IN A PIG'S EYE.

IN A PIG'S EYE?

GOOD EVENING.

WE'VE MET.

YES. BILL DANCER,
CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD,

FIRST ILLINOIS

VERY POWERFUL MAN.

NO.

NO?

CITY ORDINANCE,
TITLE 2, CHAPTER 160,

SECTION 010.
RING A BELL?

OH, MY GOD.

TAKE MY COAT.

THIS WAS A JOKE, YES?

IT WAS A JOKE?

A LITTLE FUNNY, NO?

HANG OUR COATS.

AND TO BE ENTIRELY
HONEST WITH YOU,

YOU SMELLED QUITE BAD.

YOU SEE, THE OTHER DAY,

THERE WASN'T
ALL THAT MANY OPTIONS FOR--

YOUR TABLE
IS RIGHT THIS WAY.

WHEN YOU
SUGGESTED DINNER,

I DIDN'T REALIZE YOU
WERE BRINGING THE KIDS.

I THOUGHT IT'D BE
A NICE SURPRISE.

YOU SUCCEEDED MIGHTILY.

YOU REMEMBER WALKER.

YES...
GOOD EVENING.

YOU'LL PARDON
MY INCREDULITY.

I PRESUMED YOU'D
BE GONE BY NOW.

I'M NOT.

YOU LOOK LIKE
YOU GOT HIT

BY A RAZOR
AND A BAR OF SOAP.

SCOTCH AND SODA.

Waiter:
RIGHT AWAY, SIR.

WHERE DID YOU GET
THE SPIFFY NEW DUDS?

FROM ME.

BOY, YOU TWO HAVE
HIT THE JACKPOT.

HOW'S THE GRUB?

UH...

YOU WERE LATE,
AND SUSAN GOT HUNGRY.

SO WE WENT AHEAD
AND ORDERED.

OH.

I'M SUDDENLY
NOT VERY HUNGRY.

WHAT DID YOU ORDER?
BEANS?

I THINK IT'S TIME
WE CALL IT AN EVENING.

NO. IT'S--IT'S FINE.

NO, IT'S NOT.

I'M NOT GOING
TO EAT THIS,

AND I'M NOT
GOING TO TAKE THAT.

COME ON, SUE.

THIS TIME, KEEP GOING.

SIT DOWN.

YOU HAD NO RIGHT
TO DO THAT.

TOLD YOU
THIS WAS A BAD IDEA.

IT'S NO FUN
BEING SOMEBODY'S TOYS,

AND THAT'S WHAT WE ARE.

I'M ASHAMED OF US.

DON'T EVER SAY THAT.

WELL,
EXCUSE ME, BUT I AM.

WHY DON'T YOU TELL ME
WHAT'S GOING ON?

I DON'T SEE YOU
FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS,

AND YOU'RE PLAYING
DRESS-UP WITH THEM.

YOU'RE SERIOUS ABOUT THIS?

HOW DID YOU GET
TO BE A LAWYER?

YOU SEND IN
A COUPLE OF BUCKS

AND A LABEL FROM A BOX
OF FROSTED FLAKES?

OH! GOOD NIGHT!

BILL!

BILL!

BILL!

BILL, COME ON.

HUSH UP.

I'M SO SORRY.

WELL, GOOD.

IT'S NOT GOING
TO DO US ANY GOOD.

IT'S TOO LATE.
WE'RE OFFENDED.

JUST KNOCK IT OFF,
ALL RIGHT?

JUST KNOCK IT OFF.

WALKER'S AN ASS.

IF YOU TOOK ANYTHING
HE SAID TO HEART,

YOU'RE JUST AS BIG
AN ASS AS HE IS.

WELL, THIS THING'S A JOKE,
YOU KNOW THAT?

THE WHOLE THING'S
A JOKE.

THE COAT, THE GLOVES,
EVERYTHING.

IT'S NOT DOING
ANY OF US ANY GOOD.

DO YOU GET IT?

YOU SEE WHAT I'M SAYING?

BILL, WHERE ARE YOU
GOING TO GO?

I'M GOING TO GO.
WE'RE GOING TO BE FINE.

WE'VE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM
FINDING A PLACE TO STAY,

ALL RIGHT?

GO BACK THERE.
WE'LL GO THIS WAY.

WE'LL BE JUST FINE.

I DON'T WANT YOU
TO LEAVE.

I'LL TELL
YOU ONE THING--

WE'RE NOT GOING BACK

INTO THAT STUCK-UP
HASH HOUSE.

ME, EITHER!

LET'S GO SOMEWHERE ELSE.
ANYWHERE. YOUR CHOICE.

HOW ABOUT
IF WE TAKE YOU OUT?

BILL, YOU DON'T
HAVE ANY MONEY.

WE DON'T NEED MONEY.

IT NEVER
STOPPED US BEFORE.

OK.

Bill: COME ON.

A TOAST...

TO TIFFANY AND ADAM.

HEALTH... WEALTH...
AND HAPPINESS.

THANK YOU.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

IT'S OK.
HE DOES IT ALL THE TIME.

I'D LIKE TO
MAKE A TOAST...

HE'S A PRO.

TO THE BRIDE AND GROOM...

TIFFANY AND ADAM.

MAY YOU ALWAYS HAVE
A PASSION FOR LIFE...

AND MAY YOUR LIFE BE
FILLED WITH PASSION.

NOW MY WIFE DORIS WOULD
LIKE TO SAY SOMETHING.

DORIS?

HMM?

WOULD YOU LIKE TO SAY A FEW
WORDS TO THE BRIDE AND GROOM?

OH, I COULDN'T.

DORIS? FOR ADAM
AND TIFFANY, PLEASE.

SHE HAS A FEW THINGS
TO SAY, DON'T YOU, DORIS?

COME ON. STAND UP
AND SAY SOMETHING.

WELL...

WELL, I, UM...

FIRST OF ALL, IT'S JUST
SO GOOD TO BE HERE.

YOU KNOW,

IT'S JUST SUCH
A, UH, GREAT EVENT.

AND, UM...

AND IT'S...
I CAN HARDLY REMEMBER

THE LAST TIME I SAW...

LITTLE TIFFANY WHEN
SHE WAS JUST... THAT BIG.

BUT NOW SHE'S...

ABOUT HERE.

ABOUT HERE.

I GUESS IT WAS,
UM...

AT, UM...

OUR WEDDING
IN VEGAS.

WE, UH, OUR
WEDDING IN VEGAS.

OF COURSE, IT WAS
A BEAUTIFUL WEDDING,

BUT NOTHING
LIKE THIS.

OH, BOY...

VERY WELL PUT.
THANK YOU.

SALUT.

All: SALUT.

ENJOY THE SHOW,
MA'AM.

HI.

HI.

COLD OUT THERE.

OH, BOY.

OK, TICKETS,
SIR?

I HAD THEM.
DIDN'T I HAVE THEM?

YOU'RE HOLDING UP
THE LINE HERE.

WHY DON'T YOU
STEP TO THE SIDE?

NO, I GOT THEM.

MAYBE YOU
DROPPED THEM.

OH, EXCUSE ME.
I'M SORRY.

COME RIGHT
THROUGH HERE.

DID I GIVE YOU
THE TICKETS?

NO. NO, YOU DIDN'T
GIVE THEM TO ME.

HI THERE.

I'M SORRY. MAYBE WE
DROPPED THEM OUTSIDE.

WHAT SHOULD WE DO?

GO BACK TO
THE BOX OFFICE, SIR.

I MEAN, THEY CAN
HELP YOU OUT THERE.

OH.
GREAT. THANK YOU.

GO BY THE BOX OFFICE,
OK?

THERE WE ARE.

What?

Where'd you get
the popcorn?

THIRSTY?

GREY?

THANKS.

OH, THANKS.

Anise: GREY! GREY!

GOOD MORNING.

BERNIE, WHAT
A PLEASANT SURPRISE.

DID WE HAVE
A MEETING?

I'VE STOPPED
TRYING TO ARRANGE

MEETINGS
WITH YOU, GREY.

YOU'RE NEVER IN.

THAT'S NOT TRUE.

OBVIOUSLY SOMETHING'S
BOTHERING YOU.

SERIOUSLY,
WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

EVERY TIME I'VE
CALLED DOWN HERE

THE LAST COUPLE OF
DAYS, YOU'RE NOT IN.

I'VE HAD SOME PERSONAL
BUSINESS TO ATTEND TO.

I DON'T KNOW IF
YOUR PERSONAL BUSINESS

OR THE TIME IT'S
TAKEN AWAY FROM YOUR WORK

HAS ANYTHING
TO DO WITH THIS,

BUT YOU'VE GOT THIS ARNOLD
DIVORCE ALL SCREWED UP.

NOTHING'S SCREWED UP.

I TOLD HER TO GO BACK
TO HER HUSBAND.

SHE DID.

SO WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?

HE WANTED HER OUT.

THAT'S WHY I TOLD
YOU TO GO EASY.

HE WANTED OUT,

BUT HE DIDN'T WANT TO
GIVE UP EVERYTHING.

WELL, I GUESS
IT'S HIS TOUGH LUCK.

YOU HAVE PHOTOGRAPHS
OF FRANK ARNOLD?

I'LL SAY.

DESTROY THEM.

NO.

NOT IF HE'S
GOING TO SCREW HER

OUT OF WHAT
SHE'S ENTITLED TO.

DESTROY THEM.

NO OPPOSITION
ON THIS.

HE WANTS THE GROUNDS.
HE WANTS THE KIDS.

AND TRY SPENDING A LITTLE
MORE TIME IN THE OFFICE.

ARE YOU SUSAN DANCER?

HIYA, PIGEON.

YOU'RE LOOKING SHARP.

HUH?

I CAN'T TALK.

WHERE'S THE RING?

TELL ME WHERE
THE RING IS.

I--I PAWNED IT.

OGDEN AND MADISON.

THIS SITUATION IS
TOTALLY UNNECESSARY.

I'M AN ATTORNEY.

THE CHILD WAS
IN MY CARE, IN MY HOME.

HER NEEDS
WERE BEING MET.

THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY
NO GOOD REASON

TO TAKE HER AWAY.

MA'AM, YOU AREN'T
A LEGAL GUARDIAN.

SHE CAN'T
POSSIBLY UNDERSTAND

WHAT'S HAPPENING TO HER.

SHE'S IN
PROTECTIVE CUSTODY.

SHE'S BEING
PROPERLY CARED FOR.

WITHIN 48 HOURS,

A SHELTER CARE HEARING WILL
BE CALLED IN JUVENILE COURT.

YOU'RE WELCOME TO ATTEND.

I LOVE
THIS LITTLE GIRL.

IT'S UNDERSTANDABLE,
BUT...

FROM MY POSITION,
IT'S COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT.

YO, DANCER...

YOU OUT OF HERE.

YOUR LAWYER JUST
POSTED BOND FOR YOU.

YOU GOT A CUTE LAWYER, TOO.

DID YOU EVER GET

THOSE PLANTAR'S
WARTS TAKEN CARE OF?

MY AUNT BERNICE
HAD HERS CUT OUT.

FRANK ARNOLD.

SHH. PUNKIN,
I'M ON THE PHONE.

YOU KNOW, THEY'RE
SO SENSITIVE.

MY AUNT BERNICE
HAD THOSE.

WHEN THE SCHNAUZER
STEPPED ON HER FOOT,

I THOUGHT SHE'D GO
THROUGH THE CEILING.

IS HE IN

WELL, YOU HAVE A SEAT
AND LET ME FINISH MY CALL

AND THEN
I'LL TELL YOU.

YOU COULD TRY THOSE
AIR-PILLOW INSOLES.

OR MAYBE THE WATER KIND.
YOU PUT THEM IN THE FRIDGE,

AND IT JUST
FREEZES YOUR FOOT.

I REALLY NEED TO SEE HIM.

WELL, ISN'T
THAT A PITY?

HE HAS A MEETING
IN ABOUT 5 MINUTES.

I'M SORRY. HE HAS
A MEETING RIGHT NOW.

OH! OH! I'LL CALL YOU
RIGHT BACK.

SO IF YOU WANT TO KEEP DOING
BUSINESS WITH THE CITY...

MISSY! MISSY!

WHAT THE HELL?

I'M GREY ALLISON,
YOUR WIFE'S ATTORNEY.

I'LL GET BACK TO YOU.

WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE,
BUSTING IN HERE LIKE THIS?

I'M IN A HURRY.

JESUS CHRIST, LADY,
SO AM I.

MR. ARNOLD, YOUR WIFE LOVES
YOU. SHE WANTS YOU BACK.

I KNOW FROM OTHER SOURCES
YOU DON'T WANT HER BACK.

I'D LIKE YOU TO WORK IT OUT,
AND I'D LIKE A FAVOR FROM YOU.

WHAT, ARE YOU NUTS?

I GOT A LIST OF NAMES
AND SOME PRETTY RACY PHOTOS

OF A CERTAIN CITY OFFICIAL
IN A BLUE SPEEDO.

I DON'T WANT TO BE A BITCH,

BUT I HAVE A PROBLEM, AND
I NEED SOME STRINGS PULLED.

YOU NEVER DESTROYED
THOSE PHOTOGRAPHS, DID YOU?

YOU TOOK THEM OVER
TO FRANK ARNOLD

SO HE COULD PULL THE STRINGS
OVER AT THE DCFS.

YOU LEARNED A FEW TRICKS
FROM THE OLD MASTER, DIDN'T YOU?

BERNIE, I WANT YOU
TO BUY ME OUT.

DO YOU REALIZE HOW
MANY PEOPLE WOULD KILL

FOR WHAT YOU'VE ACHIEVED IN
SUCH A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME?

YOU GOT A PARTNERSHIP,

A CORNER OFFICE BIG ENOUGH
TO PLAY BASKETBALL IN.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING
TO GIVE IT UP FOR

YOU GOT YOUR VALUE SYSTEM
ALL SCREWED UP

SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE.

I THINK IT WAS
SCREWED UP BEFORE.

I GOT TO ADMIT...

YOU'RE THE LAST ONE
I WOULD HAVE EVER THOUGHT

WOULD GO
QUALITY-OF-LIFE ON ME.

HONEY...

GREY, I THINK YOU OWE ME
AN EXPLANATION.

I DON'T OWE YOU
ANYTHING!

4 YEARS
WE WERE TOGETHER.

THAT DOESN'T MEAN
ANYTHING?

AT THE VERY LEAST, AFTER
THE WAY YOU'VE BEHAVED,

YOU OWE ME
AN APOLOGY.

DID YOU TURN IN MY FRIEND
AND HIS DAUGHTER?

WHAT MAKES YOU
THINK THAT?

DID YOU?

IF THERE'S
NOTHING TO HIDE,

IT'S JUST A CONCERNED
PHONE CALL.

YES OR NO?

WHAT DIFFERENCE
DOES IT MAKE?

JUST ANSWER ME!

YES.

I THOUGHT SO.

GREY...

UP YOURS!

GREY?

GREY!

WAIT--GREY!

STOP THE CAR!

GREY! GREY!

GREY!

WHOA! GREY!

GREY! OH, MY GOD!

GREY!

OWWW!

THERE IT IS.

THAT'S IT.

THEY CUT MY HAIR.

LET'S GET
OUT OF HERE, OK?

OK.

Curly Sue: AM I OUT OF
THIS JAM FOR GOOD?

ALMOST. THEY HAVE TO RUN
A CHECK ON YOUR FAMILY.

THAT'S EASY.
THERE ISN'T ANY.

THEN THEY'LL
RUN A CHECK ON ME,

AND IF EVERYTHING MEETS
WITH THEIR APPROVAL,

I'LL GET TEMPORARY
CUSTODY.

AND THEN,
WITH YOUR PERMISSION,

WE'LL START THE
ADOPTION PROCEEDINGS.

WHAT'S BILL SAY?

HE CAN'T ADOPT YOU,
HONEY. NOT NOW, ANYWAY.

BECAUSE HE'S SHIFTLESS.

IT'S MORE COMPLICATED
THAN THAT.

BUT, ANYWAY,
IT DOESN'T MATTER,

BECAUSE I'LL HAVE YOU,
AND HE'LL BE WITH ME.

HOW COME HE DIDN'T
COME WITH YOU?

HE HAD TO WORK.

YOU KNOW THAT
FOR SURE?

THAT'S WHAT HE SAID.
WHY?

YOU DON'T GOT TO BE A GENIUS
TO FIGURE IT OUT.

HE GOT ME A MOTHER,
DIDN'T HE?

HE CAN LEAVE ANYTIME
HE WANTS NOW.

BILL?

I CAN'T READ IT.

IT SAYS...

"I'M IN THE LIVING ROOM."

HI.

COME HERE.

NOW, LOOK...

NO SWEARING,

NO GAMBLING, NO SPITTING,
NO PUNCHING, AND NO KICKING.

PUT A SOCK IN IT.
I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING.

DO YOU WANT US TO
WALK YOU INSIDE?

NO, I GOT IT,
BUT THANKS FOR ASKING.

ALL RIGHT,
GIVE US A KISS.

PLEASE.
WE'RE IN PUBLIC.
