Guncrazy (1992) - full transcript

A trashy teen murders her sexually abusive step-father, then helps get her reformed prison pen-pal released on good behavior so that she can re-corrupt him.

You remember the
beginning of the year

when most of you thought that
Japan was part of Europe?

Well, I wanted to help foster your
new understanding of the world,

so I came up with an assignment.

I think you're
gonna like this one.

You're all going to
have to find pen pals.

Doesn't that sound interesting?

The best way to find a pen pal

is to look at the classified section
of a magazine or a newspaper.

Okay, today is the first of the month.
By this time next month,

I expect you all to have
someone you're writing to. Okay?

Anita! Would you care
to join the rest of us?

Hey, sperm babe.


Are you with us, Anita?

I was just thinking about pen
pals, Mr. Sheets.

I know what she's been thinking.

If don't shut your mouth right now,
you're going to Mr. Fisher's office.

You got that?

Hey, Anita!

C'mon, don't be like that.

Don't be mad at us.

C'mon, we're sorry.

Let's make it up to you.

You wanna come for a ride?

Where you going?

We're just gonna
be driving around.

Come on.

Check it out.
Check out the new moves.

Look out! Stage dive!

Check this out.
Check this out.

You ever seen 400 pounds of
flesh splattered all over a dump.

Come on, Anita.

Bill, cut it out!

What's the matter lard ass?

Don't call me that.

Hey, Anita, c'mon down here.

Hey, Anita, is it true you
let Joey and Al do it to you?

What they say?

They said you said,
"I believe so."

We know you're pissed off at us for
giving you such a hard time at school.

But you realize that
in the end, that

We wouldn't be such dicks
about it if maybe...

you were, possibly, nice to us,

like you were nice to
Joey and Butt Head?

Those guys are fags!

That's why we're mad at you.

It's only because we like you.

You guys really like me?

Anita, of course we do, Anita.
I'm hurt.

I guess I like you guys too.

But you promise not to tell?

We're not gonna tell no one, Anita.
I promise.

Come on, Anita.

All right. But not with him.

Why not?

You better lose some of that lard
if you wanna party here with Anita.

Where have you been?

In a place.

Shall I fix dinner?

I ate already.

Now there's nothing left.

There's some "yoohoo" left.

You mom called this morning.

What did she say?

Se said, "Hi."

That's it? She didn't have
anything else to say to me?

She just said she was having some
hassle with the law over in Fresno.


Yeah. She wanted
1,500 bucks.

I told her, "I'm taking care of your kid.
I haven't got 15 bucks let alone 1,500."

Nah, she didn't say nothing.

Except to start bitching and saying,
"Well, you're living in my trailer."

Blah, blah, blah.

I'm gonna take a shower.

How about some company?

I'm really, tired, Rooney.

"Dear Jenny,
Crisson City is a wonderful place.

"People here smile a lot,

"but I want to get away as soon
as possible and come to America.

"I have tuberculosis in my foot.

Your friend Sayang Ferdinand.
PS. I am 14."

Good, Jenny.

Then, did you find a pen pal?


Um, mine's not from
Europe or nothing.

It's from California.

Very exotic, Anita.

Anita met a doe.

I wrote him about a week ago,

and I got a letter
back Saturday.

"Dear Anita.
What a pretty name.

"My name is Howard, and I'm 24.

"You said you were interested in
how other people live and stuff.

"Well, life for me
is pretty different

"than anything you've
known, I'm sure.

"I've not walked under the stars
since I came to this place.

"It's pretty loud, too.

"I stay awake at night
just to feel the silence.

"Yet even then the darkness
is pierced with the sounds

"of men crying in their sleep.

"Now I spend my days
painting and reading.

"Before, I only knew how to
do one thing good. Shoot guns.

"I always dreamed of
a girl who liked guns.

Perhaps it was you
I was dreaming of."

May I ask where your pen pal
resides, Anita?

In goddamn Sing Sing.

Um, he's a convict up in Chino.

That really wasn't what I had in mind
when I handed out the assignment.

"I've had no contact
with a woman

"since I got arrested
three years ago.

"When I read your letter,

"I tried to picture you and how you look.
Your hair and such.

"And it made me
feel human again.

"Maybe it's crazy,
but I feel something bigger than us both

"is bringing us together.

"I believe in things like that.

"I know there's a power out there
controlling things we can't.

Best wishes.
Howard Hickok."

"PS. It would mean so much to
have a picture of yourself.

Or at least a cassette
with your voice."

Hey, Anita.

Billy and me are going down in the dump.
You wanna come along?

No, thanks.

Wait, wait a second.

Maybe we got something
better to do.

You guys said you wouldn't
tell, and you told.

You had fun. What's the big deal?
Makin' like it didn't happen!

Don't bother me anymore.
I have a boyfriend now.

What... what did you
get? A dog, Anita?

Hey, Joy.

I wouldn't put it past you
if she's so fuckin' stupid.

Hey, don't you guys have something
better to be doing right now?

Go on, get!

I hate those guys.

Let's get out of here.
This place gives me the creeps.



I wanted to take up
shooting guns.

Well, first of all
you're standing wrong.

You stand with your feet apart.

So far.

Now, get down on that
can and fire away.

Squeeze it like it was a zit.

Slow and easy.

I'm glad you're not
pissed off at me.

No. A woman oughtta know
how to handle a firearm

so she can protect herself
when a man is over.

Will you teach me?

Well, I'm tired right now,

but we always got tomorrow.

"Dear Anita, thank you
for the picture you sent me.

"You really are one of the most
beautiful girls I've ever seen.

"Good news. I did what they're
callin' a "good deed" around here

and I might parole next
month because of it."

When you gonna let me have a
taste of that...

Sally, get back to work!

"I prevented one of the
inmates from killing a guard.

"I know I'd have a better chance of
getting out if I had a job in some place.

"Maybe you can talk to
your friends around town.

"I love you.

"And I feel something very
powerful is happening between us.

Howard Hickok."

Hi, Howard.
This is Anita.

Do I sound like you
would thought I would?

And that sure was the
nicest thing I ever read.

And you said you loved me.

I love you more than words
could ever know, my darling.

I think I have an idea about
how to help you get out.

It would mean that you'd have to
write a letter sounding religious

so I could give it to a
preacher that lived nearby,

and you might be able to get
a job at his gas station.

Um, I'm gonna go to sleep,

so I'm gonna wrap it up now.

Sleep tight and sweet
dreams, my beloved.


"Since accepting Jesus
as my personal savior,

"I now realize that nothing has the
value if God isn't in on it, too.

"My rehabilitation
has taught me this.

"I hope to get out some
day and join a church

"that recognizes the Bible
is the direct word of God.

All my regard.

So, what do you
think, Mr. Fulton?

I don't know, Anita.

He needs a job
to get out on parole.

Don't need any
employees right now.

Sure you do.

I mean, there's tons of
chores to be done around here.

And he could help
with the services.

He's a believer.

You'd be the answer to his prayers.
And mine, too.

I'll tell you what I'll do.

You can tell him he can have a job.
Now, you listen to me.

I can't pay him.
All right?

That's all.

Okay, okay, okay, okay.

Thank you so much,
Mr. Fulton.

Thank you.


In reviewing the events
that brought you here,

I can only say that under
normal circumstances

you wouldn't be seriously
considered for release at this time.

However, in the light
of your recent actions,

we've taken another look
at your eligibility.

I understand that some of the
prisoners are threatening you.

Yes, sir. I'm in a
protected unit at this time.

Well, he have a policy toward convicts
that save one of our staff members

from serious injury.

So, we're granting
you a parole date.

You're a hair off to the left.

Mine was too small to
adjust with your hands.

So, step in a tiny bit here.

Line it up to the right.

Shit! You're doing good, Anita.
You're a natural.

I seem to hit things better when I
don't aim or think about it, Rooney.

You'd make some money at this.

Get yourself in a contest.

Quick! There's some cuban looney
toonies with hard-ons. Get 'em!

And always remember
to put in two shots.

And nobody gonna argue with
you after you nail 'em twice.

You know, all this shooting
has got me feeling kinda good.

If you catch my trip.

What's the matter?

I don't want to no more, Rooney.

You're my mom's boyfriend.

Ya right!

You know what your sweet mom,
my girl, is doing up in Fresno?

Yeah. She's working
in a restaurant.

She can save enough money
to bring me out with her.

Yeah? She's out peddling her
ass for some shitskin pimp

so she can earn enough money
to shoot heroin in her arm.

Shut the fuck up, Rooney.

Damn you, Anita.
Get your ass back here.

Don't fuck with me.
I mean it!

Go away!

Goddamn it, Rooney.

All right.

Just hear me, okay?

I don't like
seeing you feel bad.

There comes a time when you just
gotta know the truth about things.

I don't want to!
I got a boyfriend now.

Yeah, right.
But he's a kid?

Kid don't know how to
make a woman feel happy.

You think I've been happy here?

Get your fucking
hand off my leg!

Come on.

No, I don't want
to! Please!

No! Stop!

Stop! No!

No, please!

I don't want to.


Hi, Howard.

I am sorry for getting
you up so early.

It's okay.

I... I made this for you.
Well, I made it for you.

Thank you.
It's really beautiful.

Do you like it?

Yeah, I love it.

Well, you can put
your bags in the back.


Yeah, okay.

Back here?


If I give my heart
To you tonight

Will you still Be by my side

Or will you be gone
With the morning sun

Sure it's pretty over here.

Yeah, it's really
nice and quiet.

Thank you.

There was a lady.

I said there was a lady.

And you could've
taken hot needles.

And you could've pushed those
hot needles right into her cheeks

and she wouldn't have felt a thing.
Do you know why?


Because God had frozen her face!

Praise the Lord!

Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.

We have ourselves
a brand new member.

You come on down here, Howard.
Praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord.

Right there.

Now, do you believe
in the Lord Jesus Christ?

Yes, sir, I sure do.

Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord.

I hope for your sake,
son, that you mean that.

Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord!

Howard, have you been baptized
into the blood of the Lamb?

I've been baptized.
Yes, sir.

Well, then, you
stretch out your arm.

Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord!

It's a true test of faith!

Because God spoke to the serpent

and he said,
"The snake has beguiled me."


He said, "The snake
hath beguiled me,

and then I can
flourish." Hallelujah!

Because if you believe,
I mean if you truly believe

in the power of
the Lord Jesus Christ,

then the serpent
cannot harm you.

And you will have nothing to
fear from any of these snakes.

Praise the Lord.

I can feel it.
Can you feel that spirit?

I can feel it.
I can feel it!

I can see it!

Praise the Lord!

I can feel that spirit.
I can feel that spirit!

I can feel that spirit.

Praise the Lord!
I can see it, I can feel it.

Praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord. Hallelujah!


Praise the Lord.

Mr. Fulton?
I was wondering

if I could become a member
of your church, too.

Anita. Of course you can.

We always got room for one more.


I'm gonna go back
and be with Howard now.

That's all right, honey.

Why don't you just go home and then
you come back tomorrow, all right?


how is it going, Howard?

Well, it startin' to get
to me a little bit, sir.


I think that by now
you can call me Hank.

Good old Pee Wee.

That's a rattlesnake.

Ain't she sweet.

She won't bite, though.

She's been damaged.

I found her out by
the side of the road.

Somebody ran over
her head with a car.

So, she just kinda
lost her natural desire

to do anybody any harm.

What about those other ones?
Been run over their heads, too?

Well, I kinda "depoisoned" them

with a potato scraper.

I don't know Hank.
Seems kind of dishonest to me.

Well, Howard, let me tell you.

See these snakes?
Now, they're tools

to bring people into the lord.

How could anything that
does that be dishonest?

Besides, I've been bit.

And let me tell you
it ain't worth it.

Does Anita live far from here?

She just lives down the road
with her mama's boyfriend.

Where's her mama?

You know, I haven't got
the foggiest idea.

She's some kind of
girl, though, ain't she?

Yeah, sure is.

Yes, sirree.

I tell you.

Takes a real special
kind of woman

to go out of her way
for a man like you.


Yeah, I know, sir.

Hi. I've got
something for you.


Why do think Hank is
trying to keep us apart?

I mean, I wouldn't expect him
on doing something like that.

I think he's just checking me
out, that's all.

Yeah, I guess.

How come you don't
live with your mom?

She's up in Fresno working so
she can bring me out with her.

So, what do you mean?
You're gonna leave?

I'm not going anywhere.

I could get in so much trouble
just having these things near me.

Don't worry about it.
I remember how you wrote in your letters

that nine millimeters
were your favorite.


You didn't tell me
this thing was loaded.

I've got plenty of bullets.

You can't shoot out here.

Sure you can. No one can
hear us all the way out here.

Go for it.

Alright, if you say so.

Pretty good.


Are you gonna try?

My God!

That's not bad!

You've got a future if you start
doing a mass murder business.

Well, I don't think
I'll be doing that.

My God. Anita!
Put your top on, Jesus!

What's wrong?

Cover yourself up.

I wanted to make you happy.

Yeah, I know.
Well, it's just not the way to do it.

What I think is that
these demons right now

are in positions of power.

In positions of power
in the government

and they control the
Internal Revenue Service.

And they control...

How are you gonna
find 'em all, Hank?

Only one way.

Turning souls
in the right direction.

As many of 'em as we can.

Well, I got one for you.

How about this?

Now, what if a fella
believes in the Lord

except he's so bad that he
gets sent to hell anyway, okay?

Now, when he goes to hell,
is the Devil gonna be hard on him

because he was on the side of
the Lord when he was living?

Well shoot, Howard.
I don't know.

'Cause I never thought
anything about that before.

I gotta go.

I'll be back later, okay?

I just got...
I'll tell you later.

The door is open.

Who are you?

Howard Hickok.

Two hours late.

I know, sir.
I'm sorry.

Mr. Kincaid.

Have a seat.

I had your file
here a while back.

Here it is.

You did three years in
Chino for manslaughter.

And you did two years at the
Youth Authority in Camarillo for...

You pistol whipped your father.

How do you feel about that?

I served my time. I don't really
have to feel anything about that.

I know you don't
have to feel anything.

The question is, do you?

Do I feel anything about that?


The convenience store clerk that
you and your partner beat to death

feel anything about that?

That was an accident.
We didn't shoot him or anything.

I mean, I had a gun on me.

We didn't rob him or nothing.

You're with Hank Fulton
and his wife?

Yes, sir. I work in his garage,

and I help with the
services as well.

Also I help his wife.

She's doing some planting.
She's got ducks and whatnot.

I'm pretty busy right now.

How'd you hook up with Hank?

Hank heard about me accepting
Jesus Christ as my personal savior.

That's very admirable.

Howard, what do
you want in life?


Well, ideally I think I'd
like to be a test shooter

for firearm companies like
Smith and Wesson or Browning.

I don't know, anyone of those.

If I had the money,
I'd go to gunsmithing school,

but I think at this point it would be
better for me if I was a test shooter.

All right.

Nobody's gonna hire
you to shoot guns.

Why not? All those companies
have test shooters.

Down to earth.

We're talking about you, Howard Hickok.

What are you doing here?


My boyfriend's got
an appointment.

Your boyfriend's in with my dad?

I'm embarrassed.

Boy, Anita!
So, where were you last week?

Did you quit
school or something?

Yeah, I'm all
finished with that.


Joy, this is the guy I was
telling you about. This is Howard.

Hi, Howard.
I'm Joy.

Joy, what are you doing here?

I need my allowance, Daddy.

So, what are you guys
doing right now?

I don't know.

I need you here.

Well, maybe some other time.

Howard? Same time next week.

Don't be late.

Bye, Anita.

I want you to stay away
from those two.

I've known Anita since
I was a little girl.

Well, it's about time
you two parted company.

Daddy, she's totally harmless.

She's my friend.

I'm not talking about the girl.
I'm talking about her boyfriend.

I can't imagine what was going
through the parole board's mind

when they let this one out.

You can trust me.
I know what I'm talking about.

I think you're overreacting.

Look, just stay away from them.

Can you do that for me?

Sure, Daddy.


I promise.

Get out of here.

What do you think?

I don't know, Anita.

Are you guys okay?
You need a lift?


Howard, could you grab me
one of those beers

under your seat right there?

Say, Joy?

Didn't your dad tell you he didn't
want you hanging out with us?

He sure did!

Told ya I was trouble.
Didn't he?

Well, I figured that out myself.

Or else why would
you be seeing my dad?

See I told you
he didn't like me.

Hey, bad boy, would
you pass me that?

So, are you diggin' the sights
since you've been to Helm?

There's, there's always
the drive-in movie theater

that's been closed
for ten years.

Or there's always the dump.

Every bad thing I ever did,

I did there first.

Do you wanna come in?

Yeah, why don't you come in?


This is nice!

Do you like?

Yeah, it's really sweet.

I've been sort of redecorating.

Do you guys want some water?

You got anymore beer?

No. But I got this.

Do you want some?

You gotta ask?


Okay so,

what do you think of him?

He's really cute!

He's cute, isn't he?

I'm gonna put some music on.

Do you remember that dance
we did a couple of years ago?

Yes, I do.

Do you wanna do it?


We're gonna do this dance.


One... All right.


One, two, three.

One, two, three, four.

Mr. Kincaid!

Joy what are you doing here?

Their truck broke down,
so I drove them here, Daddy.

You go home.

I'll talk to you later.

What the hell's going on here?

Mr. Kincaid.

Yeah? Get up. Turn around.

You got no business
here, you understand?

No business being in the
home of a female minor.

I was just here visiting
Anita, sir.

We weren't doing anything.

You're talking to us
like we're trash.

I know about you.

Put out for anything in pants.

As far as I'm concerned,
you're both trash.

You got that?


You hear me?

Yeah, I hear you.

Stay away from my daughter.

Well, I guess your parole officer
doesn't like you after all.

Anita, this ain't funny.

I'm sorry.

Not bad.

Not bad at all.

You aren't mad, are you?

I'm not mad.

It's just I don't think we
oughtta be into sex just yet.

It's okay.

You could still come
in my mouth.

Anita, Jesus!

That ain't sex so much.

Besides, I thought
that's what you wanted.

That's all guys ever want.

I don't know about that.

Sounds to me like you've been hanging
out with a bunch of sex maniacs.


You two get your clothes on.

Decent yet?


What're all those guns doing
layin' all over the place?

This is where I
shoot, Mr. Fulton.

It seems like a pretty funny
thing for a girl to be doing

without any clothes
on, don't it?

As for you, Howard,

if I'd known you were gonna
be fooling around like this,

I'd never would've
let you stay here.

We weren't doing
anything, Mr. Fulton.

You go on back
to the house, Anita.

Howard and me got some
talkin' to do man to man.

I saw you. You were
fornicating her.

No, I wasn't.
I was not.

I'm not stupid, Howard.
I can see what's going on.

All I got to do is take
one little look at her.

I can see that
she's come of age.

She's all pink and juicy.

Remember, I used to be a farmer.

Look, Hank,

I love her.

That ain't the point, Howard.

Listen to me.
And you listen real good,

'cause I'm gonna give you
a couple choices here.

Don't worry.
Maybe I could talk to him.

Come on in the house.

Anita, you and Howard
got some personal stuff

that you need
to be talking about.

Hank says

I have to stop seeing you

or we can't get married.

Mr. Fulton?

Can I be getting married? I mean,
I'm a minor. Don't I need permission?

How about Rooney?

Well, he wouldn't have
much to say about it.

Besides, he took off a month ago
and he hasn't been back since.

Where would he go?

If you're old enough to be
doing what you've been doing,

you are old enough to be gettin' married.
And you listen to me.

'Cause Howard cannot afford to be
caught doing the dirty with a minor

that is not his wife.


Would you marry us, then?

Anita, do you promise God
that you're gonna love Howard

whether he's sick or he's well?

I do.


I now pronounce you
man and wife.

Well, now you can
kiss the bride, Howard.

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry

that I couldn't consummate
our wedding night.

I guess this is just gonna
have to happen some time.

It's okay.

There's other ways for people
in love to get together.

Without having sex?


Like to tell each other
our deepest secrets.

I don't think you'll
wanna know my secrets.

Yes, I do.

I don't want us to hold
anything back from each other.

You're right.

I've never been
with a woman before.

That's a secret.

I mean, I've never
been able to...

You know.

It seems like every time

I'm with a beautiful woman,

I just feel like
I'm gonna lose it.

Come on, Howard.

Where're you going?

I'm gonna consummate
for you now.

Close it!
Close it!

Who is that?


He's my mother's boyfriend.

He tried to take me
against my will.

So he... He did?

You did the right thing.
All right?

But, Anita, you can't just
leave him here like this.

I mean, it's like having a
time bomb on your back yard.

We have to bury him or get
rid of him or something.

Well, there's a furnace
about a mile away.

All right. That's
even better.

You go get a sheet.

I'll get him out.

Hey, don't worry.
It's gonna be all right.

I love you.
I love you.



Hurry up. We gotta do this quick.
All right?


Come on up here, baby,
and give me a hand.

Get the feet.

Are you okay?

What's the matter?

It's burst.

Get his other arm.

I got it.

It's heavy.


Yeah, one more.
We're almost there.

It's all right.

He's heavy.

He's so heavy.


Two, three.

You wanna say a few words?

I know he was a bastard,
but it's a Christian thing to do.


Here lies a pig.

May he roast in hell
for all eternity.

Howard? I don't care
if we ever do sex.

It's nothing special to me.

And I never could understand
why they call it "making love."

Always made me wanna throw up.

And you not wanting it,
and still wanting me

just makes me love you more.

You've been with a lot of guys?

Every man I've ever
known since I was nine,

has wanted the same thing of me.

I never felt nothing for
a single one of them.

Then I started
reading your letters.

And I started standing up for
myself for the first time.

You gave me that.

You made me free.

If anybody tries to make me
do what I don't wanna do,

they're gonna end
up like Rooney.

Look at me, Howard.

I love you.

I don't care what you've done.

Don't start thinking
about what I've done.

We're in a new life now.

Hey, Anita!

You turned up.

Show him.

This is very bad.

What's bad?

You bad?

You don't know.

You boys oughtta go home.
You shouldn't come up here.

Why's that?

What's going on?
You guys having a barbecue?

With that face he couldn't rock.

Okay, who's gonna go first?

I say it's three on one, man,
but we gotta flip a coin.

I'm first.

I'm gonna ask you one more time.

get in that car and go home.

I don't think so.
I'm sorry, man.

This is where Anita
takes all her boyfriends.

You saying you're her boyfriend?

No, her girlfriend.

We're saying everybody
is her boyfriend.

I think I want you to apologize
first before you go home.

To Anita?

Anita, who is this joker?

Howard, please.

Get in the fucking car, son!

You better both go home.
You want some of this, junior?


Anita! For Christ sake,
look what you made me do!

He needs a hospital now! Shit!

Damn it!

What am I gonna do with him now?

I can't just leave him
here bleeding like that

with this other one
knowing about it.

Hey, Anita.

You better not let
this guy do this.

Can't we think of
something else, please?

Look out!


Jesus Christ!

Why the hell didn't
you just listen to me?

Get down, son.


I'm sorry, son.

You gonna have to die.

It'll be okay, Tom.

Just think about Jesus.


I can't get it started.

Shit. All right, hang on.

Try it again.


It won't start.

What do we do?
I mean, we can't leave the car here.

We leave the car here, then they'll
know and they'll catch us. We can't...

Anita, calm down, baby!

Let me think.

Right. Go get
their car.

I'm gonna take care
of all of this.

Hurry up.

What if we get caught?

Well, I'd get fired for sure.

Anita, you might get off
being as young as you are.

I don't think I'll get that same
deal, though.

But if you told 'em

that I made you do some
of those terrible things.

I couldn't do that.

Sure you could.

I couldn't do it.

You'd better.

Or I'll come back and
bite your little butt off.

You know,

doing these things together,

I feel so close to you.

You know, Howard?

Ever since I got
your first letter,

I've been feeling
close like this to you.

I swear sometimes I feel
like one of the luckiest guys

in the whole wide world.

Met a stranger On a train

He bumped Right into me

I swear I Didn't mean it

I swear it wasn't Meant to be

Must a been a dream

From a thousand Years ago

I swear I Didn't mean it

I swear it wasn't Meant to be

From the bottom Of my heart

What happens if a Christian

yearned his whole
life for Heaven,

and then at the last second
he's committed some kind of sin

that's damned himself to hell?

Now, does

Satan hold this against him

when he's finally
in that dark one's power?

Where are my glasses?


Hey, Pee Wee!

What's the matter?

You don't look so good, do you?

I have to...

Have to send you to the vet.

Pee Wee!
Damn, you piece of shit.


Anita is here to contain me.

I heard what happened.
How is he doing?

Well, I guess he's been bitten before,
so he's kinda built up immunity.

Howard, I'd like to speak
to you in private. Outside.

I'm gonna give it to
you straight, Howard.

Placing you with Hank
Fulton was a big mistake.

He's a good mechanical.
I know he's just a bit crazy.

This is only gonna be a temporary
thing, so don't get overly upset.

It'll benefit you in the long.

Are you gonna send
me back to prison?

No, not prison.
County jail

until I can place you
somewhere more healthy.

Mr. Kincaid,
I'm married now.

To Anita Minteer?

Yes, sir. I got

I'm trying to walk
the walk here.

I think we better
talk with my wife.

I gotta frisk you, Howard,
turn around.

You just look for any
excuse, don't you, Kincaid?

Be a man, Howard.


No, John, but I'd appreciate
it if you stood by.

You're being such a dick about
this, Kincaid.

John, he's a parolee in direct
disobedience to an officer of the law.

Take him into custody.

Come on, son. Don't make it any
harder on you than it already is.

He's got a gun!


What is he hollering about?

We gotta get outta here, baby!

All right.

My God.

Over here.

My God.
My God.

Give it up, Howard.

Back off. Put those hands
up where I can see them.

Now, you happy about this?
Is this what you wanted, cop?

It's not what I wanted, Howard.

Look, forget about it.

It should be him
instead of that cop!

Back off!

And get those hands up
where I can see them!

Let's go, please!

All right.
We'll take him with us.

I want you to cover me.

I want you to get
in that car over there.

Okay? Let's go. C'mon, Move!

Let's go.



You get in first.
Get in first.

All right.
Get in.

Open the door.


What the fuck are we
gonna do with him now?

We should go easy on him.

Go easy on him?


Turn around.
Don't look at me.

You're not gonna do something
stupid, are you, Howard?

You're the one
that's stupid, mister.

You wanna know why?
'Cause I've got this gun.

So long as I got it,
I'm smart, you're stupid.

You got that?

Now, you didn't think about
that happening, did you?

I oughtta kill you right now.
I just kept your head right off.

No, please, don't kill him.
He's Joy's father.

Damn it!

Jesus Christ!
Goddamn it, Anita!

What are we gonna do with him?

You see that girl, mister?

The one you called trash?
Well, she just saved your life.

What do you think about that?

You remember that.

We can't stay here.
Come on.

Do you think you
hurt him real bad?

He brought that
on himself didn't he.

He's already in the dune.

Our lives are over now.

Yeah, well, I know
when it's over.

Not any place for us to go?

There's no place for us now.

Nowhere at all.

What about your mom?





She lives up in Fresno.

Howard, she's such a wonderful woman.
She'll help us.

I know she'll help us.

I'm hungry.

Maybe we'll see a rabbit or something.
We can shoot it.

Fuck that.

Hey, Anita, do you have
to use that language?

I need a cereal or something.

How much money we got?

Twenty cents.

Well, that ain't gonna do.

I really miss my trailer.

I wouldn't so much.

Yeah, but it was mine.

I'll tell you what.

I'll buy another when
my ship comes in.


Look out!

Are you all right?


A dog?

A dog!

Come here, boy!


How big.

Huge dog.

Hi, big dog.
Hi, big dog.

His name is Sh... Shlitzy?

I think he lives...

She lives over there.

Let me take her over. C'mon.

Come on.
It's a big dog.

Come on.

There she is.

Hi! Shlitzy, you terrible thing.

We found her on the road.

Thank you so much.

You going camping?

Yes, we are.

Well, thanks.
Thank you very much.

You're welcome.

That has been unreal.

Ciao, ball seven.

So that's why I got
mirrors on the tips.


You want a beer?

No, thank you.


I want everybody's hands on
that bar where I can see 'em.

C'mon, put your
hands up on that bar.

Nobody's gonna get hurt.

You got some balls.
I gotta hand it to you.

Just trying to get
through the day.

C'mon, honey, get their wallets.

I'm sorry.

What about the credit cards?

Just take the cash.
Give the man back his wallet.

You're next.

Take it easy.
Take it easy.

I'm just gonna
get out my wallet.

You scared me.


That's my whole paycheck.

You take it,
I'm not gonna be able to pay the rent

or feed my family.

That's fine with her.

She doesn't have to work.

I can't take your money.

What about me?
I got children, too.

I got kids.
Don't rob me.

I can't do this, Howard.

For Christ sake,
don't say my name!

They know who we are!

Here, just take your money.

Just let's leave, please.

You're the cop
killers, aren't you?

It is him.

Okay, all right.
We're going to the car.

I want everybody to put their
hands... I want everybody down in front.

I'm sorry. I just
couldn't do it.

Yeah, well, I'm not
gonna turn in today.


I've never done
anything like this.

You're the one that's hungry
and we ain't got no money.

It's so fresh and
clean around here.

Yeah, sure it's pretty.

Yeah, it's very nice.

You wanna sit here a while and
figure out what we're gonna do?

All right.

Don't worry, Anita.
We'll find your mom.

Move along.
Get off the steps.

Excuse me.
Do you know where ABA...


Down the corner to the right.

Hey, can we get
something to eat?

No, sir. I'm just trying
to get out, okay?

All right.

Hey, wait!

Hey, hey!
What are you doing?

Towing your car, pal.
You got a ticket. Gonna tow it.

C'mon, man, don't tow our car.

You got 65 bucks?

I ain't got 65 bucks. Put it some slack.
Got a really shitty day.

Yeah? Well, I've had
a shitty day, too.

Look. Let the car off
or I'll blow you away.

Okay, okay.

Get in the car.

Have a nice day.

You think she'll
let us stay here?

Sure, she's my mom.

Hey. Do you know
a Jesse Minteer?

A lady with long
hair real pretty.

Which number was it?

I'm pretty sure it's four.

Okay, hold on.

I'm looking for Jesse Minteer.

Could you just tell me where she is?
She's my mother.

Your mother ran out
on a $1,500-bond.

Where would she go?

Probably ran with that
Rooney clown for all I know.

You wanna make some money?

Why don't you come over here and
show me what you can do for me.

Pay off your mama's bill.

Excuse me, hon.

Where's my mother?
I want my mom!

Hey, don't you use
that tone with me, girl.

Look, where is she?

How the hell would I know?
Your mama is a whore and a liar.

She didn't tell me nothing!

Lets go.

Hey, wait up.

Anita, I'm sorry about your mom.

I really don't
wanna talk about it.

I'm gonna go check it out.


A little pesky.

Go on.
Get out.

Nobody. There's
room in hand.


Hi! Come
here, baby.



It seems strange that they just
leave their dog here like this.

Anything good?

I'm sorry.

You know what?
You are so beautiful.

You remind me all those
people that we saw in Fresno.

All fresh and clean.

I don't know.

You do, too, Howard.

We look like nice people.

We are nice people.

Come here, baby.

Come here.

And I swear,
you'd make a great mother.

Go on, get out of the way,
I wanna kiss you.

That looks like so much fun!

Yeah, it does.

I guess we didn't really have
a proper honeymoon, did we?

No, we didn't.

Yeah. Maybe Niagara Falls.
That's pretty romantic.

Let's go to Niagara Falls.

All right.

We can go to a lot of places.


Cross my heart and hope to die.

Okay, that sounds good.

Wait, that's my other line.

All right.
Me, too.




Where are you?

Is he there with you right now?

Yeah, he is.

I just wanted to call and talk.

Did he really do all those
things they're saying?

He ain't so bad.

They say that you're
in it with him.

We're on TV!

My God!

Me and Howard are on TV.
I gotta go.

Anita, wait!

Joy, listen. I just wanted to
thank you for your friendship.

I gotta go.
I'll call you.

Live from Reno, Nevada.

I'm here with Ray Hickok,
father of murder suspect Howard Hickok.

My god.
That's my father.

My son?

They can strap him in the electric
chair and I'd pull the switch.

I'd be happy doing it, too.

The Police believe the male
suspect, Howard Hickok

may be responsible for as many as
four homicides in the last 72 hours,

including the murder
of a police officer.

There are some questions as whether
the 16-year-old girl traveling with him

is a hostage or an accomplice.

Cheer up.

We're celebrities.

We're gonna have people
asking for autographs.

Yeah, well, our autographs won't
be worth a spit once we're dead.

Yeah, well.

Maybe we could go to like, um,

one of those South American
countries, like Colombia or, um,

Mexico or Afghanistan
or some place like that.

Right? I hear Americans can
live really well down there.

It's like, It's like...

Your part of my body.

I am, Howard.
I am.


I'm just sad, that's all.

What's wrong?

Because they're gonna catch us.

Well, not if we
play our cards right.

They're gonna find us,

and they're gonna shoot us.

And if they don't,
then the State will later, Howard.

I guess that's pretty

I never really
minded dying before.

But what I didn't realize is
that I was never really alive

until I hooked up with you.

Baby, I wish you'd never
got mixed up with me.

What is it?


Go on, crazy dog!


Go back to sleep, hon.

What... what's going on?

We found your
little friend Anita.

She's holed up in a house
with that boyfriend of hers.

I'm going there now.


Don't forget she
saved your life.

Go back to sleep.


What's going on?

They're out back too.

Well, if I'm gonna die,
I wanna have my clothes on.

This is the Police.
Come out with your hands up.

This will be your only chance.


This is it, Howard.

All right, baby.
Now, I'm not gonna get a chance.

I wanna make sure that you're
gonna get one, all right?

Hey you, out there! Listen!

You come in here and I
swear I'll shoot this girl!

You don't need this no more.

I mean it Pigs, I'll kill her.

She'll be dead and
it'll be on your head.

All right.
You know what to say, don't you?

I don't mind dying, Howard.

C'mon, you know what to say.

When you get
down to that station.

Don't let 'em get to you.

They're gonna try and play
all kind of mind games on you.

Just gotta remember that all they're
gonna try and do is ruin you.

You understand?

All right.


I feel so much better now.

You know that I love you, Anita.

I never said those words to
anybody in my whole life.

I love you and I'll be waiting
for you on the other side.

I just know God
is gonna like me.

You know how I know that?

Because you like me.

He's gonna love you, Howard.

All right, now, no more tears.

Save that for when you
get down to the station.

Maybe what we did tonight,
maybe we made ourselves a baby.


All right I'll kill her!

I swear I've got
nothing to lose!

He made me do it.
