Malicious (1995) - full transcript

A medical student, obsessed with her school's star baseball player, pursues him and finally manages to get him to spend the weekend with her. However, when he soon returns to his girlfriend, her anger at his "betrayal" causes her to go over the edge and places both her ex-lover's and his girlfriend's lives in danger.


Come on, Dougie.

I got it, Dad.

Catch it closer to your body.

That's it.

That's okay.
We'll try again.

That's the one,
- I got the ball.

- Now throw it back to me.
- I got the ball!

Who's gonna be in
the big leagues, Dougie?

I'm gonna play baseball.

Pow! You see that?

Tell Mom what you're gonna do.
What are you gonna play?

I'm gonna play big baseball.

And you're gonna be
the one, kiddo.

- That's great, honey.
- I wanna throw the ball.

Come on, Dougie.
Come back over here.

I want you to stay there.

I'll stay here.
You throw me the ball.

It went all the way over there.

- That's wonderful.
- Now throw it back.

I wanna be in the...

I got the bat, Mom! DAD: Okay, Watch this.

Hold tight.
Keep your eye on the ball.

He almost lost the game.

Two down. The Bulldogs
are still behind by two.

I don't believe it.

Swing, batter, batter, batter.

The Mighty Doug Gordon...

Talk about a great season.
Forty-three home runs.

RBI's, 60. Up to bat...

Yeah!

That's a good one, Dougie!

Low and inside.

Mendez is one of
the league's great southpaws.

More sporadic today.

Last time these two teams met,
he threw a perfect game.

Here's the pitch. Strike!

Ooh! I don't know about that.

I thought
that was a little high.

I think Gordon did too.

The crowd's not happy
with that one,

but Gordon's not contesting.

He's waiting for the big one.

Bingo! It's going!

It is going! It's gone!

Guess who?

Hey.

What is this?

Are you gonna keep
this stupid thing?

Yeah. Why?

Come here. For this.Heh.

Stop it, heh.
It tickles.

Oh, hey, I got you something.

What?

What is it?

Open it.

A bat?

Yeah, but look at what it says.

'Home Run 100,
Doug Gordon.'

It must mean a lot to you.

It does. That's why
I gave it to you.

Heh. Thanks.

Well, all I've got for you
is some good news.

What, you're not gonna leave me
alone this weekend?

No, but you're off the hook
tonight. Dinner's canceled.

My dad had to fly off
to Tokyo last minute.

Well, at least I can use
the extra time,

I can put it to some studying.

Are you still cramming?

Do you have any idea

how many bones there are
in a single human hand?

No, Dr. Gordon.

Why don't you tell
our studio audience

and all our friends at home.

How many bones are there?

Very funny.

Here we are today
with Dr. Gordon,

preeminent sports physician
and doctor to the stars.

Dr. Gordon, is it true

that your lovely girlfriend
Laura was instrumental

in your early success as
a student of sports medicine?

Well, I would have to say
it was more her

unwavering loyalty,

her understanding... Heh.

And, of course,
her sexual prowess.

Mm. Honey?

What?

We're in a library.

There's nobody here.

Come on, nobody's gonna see us.

I'm not gonna see you again.
It'll be exciting. Come on.

We never have
any time alone. Jesus.

I'm sorry.

Ah, stupid.

It's okay.
I overreacted a little.

Well, I better get going.

I've got a long drive
ahead of me.

I'll call you later, okay?

Heh. Bat.

Good luck with your interview.

Thanks. I'll call you
as soon as I get there.

Hey hey, Dougie!
Where you been?

I was in the library.

Oh, yeah. What's that?

You see that big building
over there?

It's got, like, books inside it.

And people go there
and they read.

Oh, yeah, I think I've
been there once or twice.

Uh-huh.

So, what's up, bud?
No big date tonight?

No, no, not for this guy.
Not for this guy.

Although Jay and Dean called.Uh-huh.

They're throwing a big party
at the beach tonight.

Ugh! You're gonna have
to tell me all about it.

Oh, come on. The whole
team's gonna be there.

I can't.
Why?

Laura have other plans
for you tonight?

No. Actually she's away
for a couple days.

All right.
So you're a free man.

No, man, I can't.

I got tons of studying
I have to do.

And I promised my mom
I'd go out with her tonight.

Now it's your mother?

Look, man, she's not doing
too good since my dad died.

I'm sorry.
I'm sorry, man.

I, uh, forget sometimes.

You all right? Yeah. It's cool.

Yeah, it's cool. All right.

Look, it's early yet, all right?

We walk in and out, say hello.Ah.

Ten minutes,
that's all I ask of you.

I can't.Oh, come on! Come on.

Ten minutes.

Please.
We walk in and out.

Well, you've been working
your ass off.

All right. Ten minutes. Yeah?

Ten. That's it.
Sure?

Okay? I'm positive. All right. Good.

See you then?
All right. All right. See you then.

Hey, Doug! Yeah!

Doug! Hey, Doug,
did Laura find you?

Yeah, I was in the library.

Yeah, can you believe that?

Just like that she gets
a call for Stanford.

One minute they're being aloof.

And the next thing, they want
you to drop everything.

Don't they realize
we have lives too?

I think it's a really
big pain in the...

Doug?

Doug? Hey, thanks for, uh...

For getting me
into Lesher's class.

It's no problem.

It'll be nice to have you
in the class.

Uh, just make sure
you know the pulmonary

and cardiovascular systems,

because Lesher can be
a real hard ass.

Did he tell you we're dissecting
a cadaver next week?

I can't wait.

Hey, what are you drinking?
- Cuba libre.

Beer 's over there. I' ll see you later.

Heh, I'll see you later. MAN: Nice, dude.

Doug! Dougie-Dog.

Here he is, folks.
This is Doug Gordon.

He is the breaker of records
and hearts alike.

Cocktail?
No, thanks.

You know we have a game
tomorrow. Remember?

Yes, but tomorrow
is a very long way away.

Now, I want you to gaze
before you, Doug.

I want you to tell me
what you see.

A reggae band?

Babes, Doug.
I'm talking about women.

Wait, Doug.

Pardon me. I've been
on Prozac for a month

and my thighs are swelling.

And I was wondering
if you knew anything about...

♪ People, People
What do we need ♪

♪ We need more love
So the world can be free ♪

Hi, Doug.

Do I know you?
No.

But everyone here
seems to know you.

Small town.
Baseball team, you know.

Want a cigarette?
No, thanks. I don't smoke.

They're American Heritage.

All natural. No chemicals.

They're practically
good for you.

I like your beard. Oh, thanks.

Makes you look
kind of like Mark McGwire.

You know Mark McGwire? Oakland A's.

229 home runs, 632 RBIs.

You're into baseball.Obsessed.

I guess you play.
Yeah.

Do you go to Bellport?

Second year med school.

Last year pre med.

I'm Melissa, by the way.

Hi, Melissa.

So, what brings you here?

I mean, you, uh...

You seem above
all this nonsense.

You don't like parties?

No, they're all right.
It's just...

Have a lot of studying
I should be doing.

And I have to write
my MCAT soon.

Welcome to a new dimension
in misery.

Heh.
What's your major?

Major League Baseball,
hopefully.

But kinesiology and anatomy.

Anatomy? My favorite.

Heh. Okay.

So tell me about
your girlfriend.

Who says, heh,
that I have a girlfriend?

Oh, come on.
Guys like you always do.

Unless, of course,
they don't like girls.

What do you want
to know about it?

Well, how long
have you been going out?

Hm, three years.

Really? Something like that. Yeah.

Serious?

Yeah, I guess so.

Oh.

Thanks for the cigarette.

Hey, what's your hurry? Excuse me?

The night's young.
Why don't we go somewhere?

Like where? Anywhere you want.

I don't think so.

I mean, you seem like
a really nice person.

But, like I said,
I'm seeing someone.

Then why are you here
at this party without her?

She's got a big interview
this weekend.

Stanford School of Journalism.

Stanford?
Yeah.

Impressive.

So how long is
she gonna be gone for?

Mm, a few days.

Gonna miss her?

Yeah, sure.

Doesn't sound very convincing.

I should go.
Um, I have a game tomorrow.

It was really nice meeting you.

See you around, slugger.

Shit.

You looking for these?

Hey, where did you find those?

On the dock.
You must have dropped them.

Thanks. Wait a minute.

Are you okay to drive? Yeah, heh, I'm fine.

I don't know. I saw you
drinking a lot in there.

Thank you but I'm fine.

Okay, touch your nose. What?

Come on, like this.
Touch your nose.

Very good, heh.
Now with your tongue.

Very funny.
Can I have my keys, please?

You don't have much of
a sense of humor, do you?

I have a terrific
sense of humor.

Oh, yeah?
Yeah.

If I run down one more
old lady, I win a prize.

Now give me my keys,
heh, please.

My mother was run over
by a drunk driver.

Okay, so we go in his room.

I don't like him as friends.

Doug?

Hey, I'm sorry about your
mother. I didn't know.

I was only kidding.
My parents are divorced.

Heh, you should have
seen your face.

That's very funny.

♪ I could go out in the sun ♪

♪ I should go out in the sun ♪

It's a nice car.

Ah, it 's my stepfather' s.

I'm just borrowing it.

You know, I didn't want
you to think

I was some kind of princess
or something.

So, where is your dad, anyway?

Alaska.
Yeah?

I heard it's supposed to be
really beautiful there.

♪ Take me ♪
♪ Yeah, to the river ♪

So you wanna fuck?

Heh. What?

Fuck.

If you like, I can demonstrate.

Uh, I already told you
I have a girlfriend.

I don't know.
Let's see.

Your mouth says no,
but your body...

Well, it's saying
something else, isn't it?

Number five.
Left fielder, Doug Gordon.

Batter up.

Come on, Doug.
You're up.

Knock it out.
This is the one, now.

Nice and easy.

Way to watch it, Doug!
Way to watch it.

Good eye! Good eye!

Strike!

Gordon does it again.

That's the 44th of the year

and 101 for his career.

Way to go, Gordon.

Bobcats 11, Express 10.

Hey, Gary, wait up, buddy!

Stealing
more hearts, I see.

And here I was thinking
I was something special.

What are you doing here?
- I'm Lesher's T.A.

What are you doing here?

I just switched
from Beckman's class.

It was too close to practice.

Oh, so now you're following me.

Heh, funny.

Well, I suppose you'll be
wanting these back.

Oh, yeah.

You were quite impressive.Thanks.

At your game today.

Heh. You were at the game?

That was some hit.

Yeah, if only, uh...

If only this stuff came
as easy, I'd be all right.

Maybe you just need a tutor.

I wouldn't go that far.

Ha, ha. I would,
given your grades.

Oh, so now you're looking
at my grades, huh?

Hey, look, I'm having
a problem with my fielding.

Can you take care of
that for me too?

Oh, heh, I'm sorry.

I didn't realize I was posing

a threat to your masculinity.

Who said
you were posing a threat

to my masculinity, heh?
Look, when you're through

trying to impress yourself,
I'll see you at my house,

7:00. If the directions
are too difficult,

my phone number's there too.

Melissa.

Yes, Dr. Lesher.

Remind me to schedule
a meeting with Dr. Marcus.

Oh, really?

What?

Hi, this is Doug. You know what to do

when you hear the beep. Thanks.

Hi, Doug. It's Laura.

Just thinking of you.
I'll try you later.

Say hi to your mom.

Melissa?

Hi.
Hi.

Is something wrong?

Yeah, I just having
a really bad day.

Are you okay?

Yeah. Yeah, I'm fine.

Listen, why don't we just go
somewhere else?

At least we won't be
bothered there.

Tricuspid valve,
carneae, tendinae,

and the lining is endocardium
and myocardium.

Good. But don't forget
the epicardium.

Yeah, right.

Hey, I really appreciate this,

you know,
helping me out like this.

Especially after I was...

Don't worry about it.

Is this your father?

Yeah, when
he was young. Long time ago.

Before he was married.

He loved baseball.

It's all he ever wanted to do.

He was good enough
for the pros too.

Just like you, Doug.

Why didn't he play?

Well, he had a decision to make.

My mother hated the travel
and the lifestyle,

so she gave him an ultimatum,
and he took it.

He became a surgeon.

I'm not this open with everyone.

I don 't know, it' s strange.
I feel different with you.

I'm sorry,
I should just shut up.

You know the other night?
In the car?

I'm not usually like that.

I don't know
what I was thinking.

I guess I was just afraid.

Afraid of what?

Afraid of not knowing what it
would be like to know you.

To be with you.

Hey, why don't you come in
for a drink?

I gotta go.
I'll call you.

Are you up for sailing
this weekend?

It's supposed to be
really beautiful.

I'm, uh, really busy.

I know this great little island.

It's just a couple
of hours from here.

Do you wanna stay the night?
I have an extra set of pajamas.

Listen, why, ah...

Why don't we just lay low
for a little while?

I mean, ah...

I wasn't expecting any of this.

It's just...

I got a lot of things
I gotta figure out.

And I still have a girlfriend.

And I still don't care.

Yeah, but I think Laura might.

Laura?
That's her name? Laura?

Well, Doug, if that's
what you want, then go.

Melissa, come on. Good-bye, Doug.

Hi, this is Doug. You know what to do

when you hear the beep.
Thanks.

Doug, it's me.

It's 1:00. Where are you?

I'll be up for the next
half hour.

Please give me a call.

I don't know what
to tell you, Doug.

I mean, if getting
a little of this

is the worst trouble
in your life right now,

I don't feel sorry for you.

- I'm being serious, man.
- You're up.

Ready?
What about Laura?

Nice.

That's the whole thing.

Okay.
Again.

I know things are a little
shaky between you two.

It's not even that.

It's just Melissa is different.

I don't know. I...

I just don 't know if I' m ready
to give it up with Laura.

I wouldn't want to be
in your shoes right now, pal.

Your pants, I'd like to be
in your pants,

but not your shoes.

You look like shit.
What's the matter with you?

I got a call last night
from an old buddy of mine.

Mitchell James.

He's a top scout
with the Giants.

He's agreed to fly up here
and take a look at you.

When?

Said he'd try to make one
of the next three games.

Now, he's coming up here
to see you.

This guy can tell a difference

between somebody who's playing
up to their potential

and somebody
who's just jerking around.

Got it?

All right.
Keep it under your hat.

Hey, Coach.

Thanks.

Hey.

Hey, Rich. RICH: Yeah?

What are you gonna do
when we graduate?

Uh, work for my old man.

At the lumber yard?

Yeah. Why?

Nothing.
I was just wondering.

You coming or what?

No. I'll see you
tomorrow, man.

Hello? Hello?

Hi, slugger. How's it going?

Listen, I'm sorry about
last night.

I haven't been feeling so great.

My parents are fighting
like crazy,

and it's just starting
to get to me.

Anyway, enough about that.

- Melissa?
- I wanted to know,

when would you like
to get together again?

How did you get my number?

It wasn't that difficult.

There is this thing
called the phone book.

Hold on a second.

Hello?

Doug? I finally caught you.

Laura.

Hi, baby.
Where have you been?

I've been trying
to get a hold of you.

Look, just, uh,
hold on a second, okay?

Melissa?

Who's Melissa?

Oh, just hold on.

Hello?

I don't like being put on hold.

Look, fine.
I'll call you back, okay?

Do you still have my number?

Yeah, I got it somewhere.

Laura.

Who's Melissa?

Oh, she's just a friend
of my mom's.

How is your mom? She's okay.

It's tough on her, though,
you know?

She talks about my dad
like he's still around.

So how is San Francisco?

Wonderful.

I take it your interview
went well?

It's official.
I've been accepted.

So how come
you don't sound excited?

I'm going to be
in San Francisco.

Yeah? Well, you may not
be alone.

What do you mean?

There's a scout coming to see me

from the Giants.

As in San Francisco Giants.

When did this happen?

Coach told me about it today.

Do you want to get that?

No. I'd rather
talk to you.

Ah! Fuck you, you bastard!

So when are you coming home?

I'm leaving first thing
in the morning.

I should get there around 8,
depending on traffic.

So, what, should I meet you
at your place?

I have a better idea.

Oh, yeah? What's that?

The library.

The library?

Well, isn't that
what you wanted?

That was different.

I've been doing
a lot of thinking, Doug,

and, I mean, you were right.

I don't know why I make
such a big deal out of it.

I know I have to change.

So the library it is.

Is there a better place
to learn?

I'll meet you there.

Bye.

Laura?

Yeah?

I miss you.

I miss you too.

I'll be back soon.

Hey, Doug.
Earl.

Doug.
Hey, Earl.

Do you know what it took
to get this part?

Where'd you get it?

Never ask a cop
about his sources.

You better take good care
of that bike,

just like your father did.

I will.
Thanks, Earl.

Listen, tell your mom
that Marge and I

will meet her at 1 for lunch.

One o'clock.
Okay?

All right.
All right.

Thanks, Earl. All right.

Earl said he'd meet you at 1
for lunch.

Oh, good. I do hope
you're joining us.

Actually, Mom, I can't.

Doug, is there something wrong?

No. Nothing. Why?

You just seem
a little on edge lately.

It's not like you.

The coach said that a scout
from the Giants

is coming to see me.

Oh, Dougie, that's terrific.

You know, maybe you should
shave this thing off.

Ma, it's not that big a deal.

You never know.
We're talking professional.

That's probably the Giants now.

Hello?

Is Doug there?

Oh, hi, Laura. No, it's Melissa.

Do I sound like Laura?

I 'm Doug' s tutor.

Oh, Melissa.

Is he around?

I'm... I'm sorry,
Doug's not home right now.

He's not?

Well, do you know
where he went?

Uh, no, I don't.

He drove off about an hour ago.

Really? Are you sure?

Yes, I'm sure.

Would you like
to leave a message?

No, that's okay.

Melissa.

Who's Melissa?

It's nobody.

It's just somebody
I met at a party.

So why did I have to lie?

I'm sorry, Mom.

I just didn't feel like
talking to her.

Douglas?

Yeah, Mom.

Don't get yourself into trouble.

Oh, shit.
I don't believe this.

Surprise, surprise.

What are you doing here?

I was about to ask you
the same thing.

Why did your mother lie to me?

I told her to.

Why?

Because I said I would call you.

But you didn't.
So, what's a girl to do?

So, what do you want?

Well, I made reservations
for two at Carmichael's tonight.

I already have plans. My treat.

I can't. Not tonight. When?

I don't know. Oh, I see.

So I've served my purpose,

and now you're moving on.

No, that's not it at all.

Melissa...

You've got to shave that thing.

I missed you.

I missed you too.

All I could think about...

was us.

What's wrong?

Nothing.

What do you mean, nothing?

Aren't I...?

No, it 's... It' s not you.

It 's just... I don' t know.

Maybe this wasn't
such a good idea.

I'm trying, Doug.
Really.

I know.

We will begin today's class

by making a longitudinal
incision

along the abdominal cavity.

You will remember from last week

the proper surgical techniques
of opening the body.

Why don't you have
the honors, Doug?

...26 through 30 of the tutorial.

Follow along through steps 11...

Go for it, slugger.

...and you will realize

that Megan's descriptions

are reasonably close to reality.

Are we ready?

It's easy once you get
the hang of it.

Very good,
Mr. Gordon.

Now identify this.

Gall bladder.

Gall bladder.

Very good, Mr. Gordon.

Now, tracing away
from the liver, you...

Strike two.

Watch the ball, Rich!

Take it easy, now!
Don't rush yourself!

Come on, Filipelli!

Strike three!

What? You're out of here!

Okay, we'll take it.

Keep it up, Rich.

Son of a bitch
has gotta be throwing 90.

He is.
I clocked him on radar.

No shit.

Come on, Gordon!

Come on, Gordon.

Let's go, now.

Come on, Gordon.

Come on.
Come on, Gordon.

Ball.

That's the way to watch it.
Good eye. Good eye.

Three!

And that's the end of the fifth...

Lucky pitcher.

Unlucky batter.

It happens.

Get dressed.

Judy's here.
Maybe we'll all go out.

Okay, I'll be a sec.

Meet you at your truck?

Don't worry.
You played well.

Last one, Cheech.

Didn't mean to make you jump.

Maybe you ought
to switch to decaf,

or meditate,
or do some fucking thing.

Lose something?

Get out.

Don't worry.

No one's gonna interrupt us.

Not unless they're a locksmith.

Look, Melissa,
this has got to stop.

Doug, you almost
finished in there?

Judy and I want to get
something to eat.

Yeah, look I'll be...
Ahem, there in a minute, okay?

I'm just gonna take
a quick shower. Go ahead.

Doug, are you alone?

Yeah, why?

I have a better idea.

What's that?

Why don't I come in
and help you dry off?

Look, that sounds really good,

but the coach pissed at me,
and he's coming back in a minute

to talk to me, okay?
So just...

Just go ahead
and I'll meet you there.

Okay.

Let's go.

Finally.

Boy, I like it
when you play rough.

Just get the fuck out of here.

Doug, what's wrong?

Look, I just want

to get something straight
with you, okay?

Melissa...

Don't be embarrassed.

It's a good idea
to spice things up.

Otherwise, love will never last.

There is no love.

How can you say that?
After everything...

I'm sorry you misunderstood.

It 's Laura, isn' t it?

Yes, but I told you
right from the beginning, okay?

What does she have that I don't?

Look, I'm not gonna have
this discussion with you.

Well, I bet
she doesn't have this.

That's not real, is it?

Now, what would be special
about a fake tattoo?

I can't believe you did that.

Why?

Because all we did was fuck.

We didn't make love.

We fucked.
And it didn't mean a thing.

What about me? Huh?

What about the way that I feel?

Did you ever stop
to consider that? Huh?

What did you think, that I was
just some slut plaything

you can do what you want with

and just throw me away
afterwards?

I'm sorry that you feel
this way,

but I suggest that you get on
with your life.

Sorry I'm late.

Judy's already gone?

Yeah.

What happened?

I had to talk to the coach.
I'm sorry.

Hey, you can't hit one
out of the ballpark every time.

Scout might have been there.

Is that what's bothering you?

Yeah, I mean, if I don't
start hitting the ball soon,

then what's gonna happen?

I'm not gonna get drafted.

You'll get a hit, slugger.
You always do.

Why did you call me that?

What, 'slugger'?

Yeah, you never
called me that before.

So what?

Are you sure you're okay?

Yeah, I 'm just... I' m sorry.

I'm just being stupid.

Just a minute.

Your bell's broken.

Yes, I know.

You must be Melissa.

I am.

And you must be
Mrs. Gordon.

It's nice to finally meet you.

What can I do for you?

Well, I'd like
to speak with Doug.

It's after midnight.

Oh, I'm sorry.

Is it past his bedtime?

Good night.

I really do need
to talk with him.

Doug is asleep.

You can talk to him
in the morning.

I want to throw the ball.

Okay, put your glove back on.

I 'll... I' ll stay here.
You throw me the ball.

Hi, Dougie.

It went all the way over there.

That's wonderful. Good for you.

Okay. Here, Dougie.

I got the bat, Mom.

Okay, watch this. Hold tight...

Mom?

Keep a firm grip on the bat...

Mom, what are you doing up?

You know, Doug, your father
really looks like you.

Or you look like him,
I should say.

- I swung the bat.
- Swing the bat...

What the fuck are you doing here?
Aw...

What is wrong with you?

I had to see you.

How did you get in here? I have a key.

You have keys to my house?

Well, in case of emergencies.

Yeah? Well, this is
no fucking emergency.

Well, I think it is.

Why is that? I have to talk to you.

Not now.
My mother's sleeping.

Oh, she's not gonna wake up.

Not the way she's popping
those pills.

You should really talk to her
about her dosage.

Now you're spying on my mother?

Oh, now this must be Laura.

My, she 's stunning, isn' t she?

What the fuck do you want?

I'm afraid. Afraid of what?

Well, I was thinking about
what you said today,

about how we didn't make love,
we just fucked?

And then I thought,

'Hey, if he' s got
that kind of attitude,

then maybe he might have
given me something.'

You think that
I gave you something?

Why are you so sure
that you didn't?

Me.

Well, you're the one
that's fucking around.

You are way off. Am I?

Yes. The only other girl
I've been with

in the last three years
is Laura.

Well, how do you know how many
people she's been with?

Laura hasn't been
with anyone else.

Oh, well, she probably thinks
the same about you.

You know something?
This is bullshit.

Is it? Yeah, I want you to leave.

Let's go.

I'm sorry.

I'm so sorry.

Oh, God, this is embarrassing.

I'm sorry.

It's okay.

It's okay.

Come on, now. Don't cry.

Ah!

Shh.

Come here, kitty.

Come on.

Doug? No classes today?

Let me guess, you're taking
a four-day weekend?

Why is your shower running?

Wait a minute.
I was just going in there.

By the way, your friend
Melissa was here last night.

Kind of pushy, isn't she?

Who is she, Doug?

Doug?

Douglas? Jesus, Mom!

What happened to privacy?

I want to know what's going on!

Doug, I hope you know
what you're doing.

Hello?

Doug, get over here.

It's the cat.
Somebody killed our cat.

What? I can 't believe it. It' s him.

Okay, listen... What's going on?

Look, calm down.

All right, listen.
I'm coming...

I'm coming right now.

Someone...

is trying to destroy my life.

She must have been the one
who did this.

Every time I turn around,
she's there.

I can't get rid of her.

Melissa?

Judy tried to tell me,
but I wouldn't listen.

You told me she was
a friend of your mom's.

You lied to me.

Why is she doing this?

I don't know.

She's obsessed.

There's something really
fucking wrong with her.

Did...

Did you sleep with her?

Get out.

I'm sorry.

I said get out.
Look, it didn't mean anything.

You son of a bitch,
get the fuck out!

No! Aah!

Stop it!

Please, stop it!

Where the fuck have you been?

I mean, you're missing
practices.

You look like shit.
What is it?

Look, I don't want
to talk about it.

What, are you
fucking kidding me?

You don't want to talk about it?

This is me. Since when do you
keep me in the dark?

I mean, there's something
going on, obviously.

What is it? You don't know shit, okay?

I don't want to talk about it.
I don't know shit?

I know there's something
going on.

What is it, you and Laura
serve your time?

That's not funny.

When you two lovebirds get
through, we got a game to play.

Suit up.

Somebody wants to see you.

Mr. Mitchell James.

Ball.

Come on, Doug.
Show them your stuff now.

Come on, Dougie!

Dougie Dog!

Come on, Dougie!

Don't push it, Doug.
Come on, let's go, now.

Slam it home, Dougie.

Come on! RICH: Dougie.

Come on, let's go, now.

Come on, Dougie.

Come on, slam it home, Dougie.

Hammer it home, Dougie!

Batting for shortstop:

Cecil Martin.

It's okay, Doug.

He's just having a slump.

Mitch, this is Doug Gordon.

He's the kid
I was telling you about.

Your coach has been
badgering me all year

to come and watch you
hit the ball.

Sorry about the disappointment.

Every batter has a slump,
Gordon.

But your stats don't lie.

But at the pros,
we're just as concerned

with a man's character.

What else you interested in
besides baseball?

Kinesiology and sports medicine.

I figured it would be good
to have something

to fall back on just in case
baseball doesn't work out.

That's some schedule
you're keeping.

Yeah, it keeps me busy.

I like you, Gordon.
You got high standards.

That's just the kind of winning
attitude we're looking for.

Great. I'll try my best.

Yeah.

That's him.

That's the son of a bitch.

Douglas Gordon?
What?

You're under arrest. For what?

You have the right
to remain silent.

Hey, take your hands off me!

Anything you say can be used
against you in a court of law.

I didn't do anything. You have the right

to talk to a lawyer...

I didn't touch her!

If you can't afford
to hire a lawyer,

one will be appointed
to represent you.

Sick bitch! Aah!

This is bullshit. God, how many
times do you want to hear this?

I was in my room studying,

I heard the television
and I went into the living room.

And she was there? You gave her a key.

I did not give her a key.

She made her own key
without my permission.

And, of course,
you had a problem with that.

Hey, look, I did not
fucking hit her.

All right, fellas,
I'll take it from here.

Well, if you want
to handle this piece of shit,

that's fine with us.
Let's go.

I read your statement, Doug.
What the hell's going on?

She broke into my house
and she drugged me.

I never laid a hand on her.
I swear to God.

I don't know what the fuck
she's up to.

All they have is a restraining
order on you.

I'll have you out of here
in less than an hour.

But you have to keep
the hell away from her.

Stay away from her?

She's the one
that's following me.

Okay, okay.
Let's drop that.

Doug, I didn't want to have
to tell you this in here.

There's been an accident.
Your mother's in the hospital.

Mom?

What happened?

Mom?

She'll be fine.

We just have to keep
an eye on her for awhile.

In her condition,
we can't afford for her

to try something
like that again.

Try what?

She overdosed on Maluprim.

High-grade sleeping pills.

They were different
from her own prescription.

I have no idea how she got them.

I do.

I feel awful.

Wish you'd said something.

Marge and I have always tried
to be there

ever since your dad died.

I know. Listen...

She... She didn't do this
to herself.

I know who did it.

So tell me.

It's that woman, Melissa.

Are you sure?

Laura, you've never been one
to back down from a fight.

There's something wrong here.

I don't think you can
just blame Doug.

Five minutes.

'Dr. Richard Nelson
was acquitted today in Seattle.

'He faced charges
of physical abuse

'against his 12-year-old
daughter.

'Nelson' s wife Patricia

declined to comment
on the injuries.'

'March 5th, 1994.

'Prominent surgeon' s wife
committed.

'Dr. Richard Nelson' s wife,
Patricia,

'was committed yesterday
to the Woodrow Institute

by her daughter, Melissa.'

Well, you're
the first one, actually.

Since her daughter brought her
in here two weeks ago,

none of the folks around here

can get a word
out of her edgewise.

I'll leave you two alone.
Don't expect too much from her.

If you want anything,

I'll be in admin
when you finish.

Mrs. Nelson?

Hi, I'm Laura Hutton.

I need to speak to you
about Melissa.

My friend may be in danger.

Mrs. Nelson, if there's anything
that you could tell me

that might help me
understand your daughter...

Did she do this to you?

Melissa...

Hi, Doug. It's me.

I have to tell you something.

It's about Melissa.

Hello?

Anybody home?

Miss Nelson?

Miss Nelson?

Is anyone home?

The door was open.

Miss Nelson?

Is anyone home?

Earl?

Earl?

Earl?

According to the report,

Melissa had a history
of abuse problems

with her father.

Looks like she settled
the score on that.

All right, look,
you go with him.

He's gonna take you to
the hospital and check you out.

I'll call you later, okay? All right.

Can I get you a ride home?

No, it's okay.
I got my truck.

Why don't you get some rest.

Someone will look after
your mother, okay?

Yeah, thanks.

You son of a bitch!
Get the fuck out!

Hey! Over here!

Hey!

Over here!

Melissa.

Well, hello, you.

Did we have a little accident?

Looks like you could use
some help.

Melissa, don't fuck around!

What's that I smell?

Is that gasoline?

Wouldn't it be romantic? Hm?

Two lovers going up in flames.

Melissa, please.

Just help me
get out of here, okay?

Why?

Do you want me
to die here like this?

You know, you do have a point.

Having you die like this

wouldn't be very...

fun.

You blew it, fucker.

With her attempt
on your life, Doug,

we have hard evidence
against her now.

I have the feds on our side
and I've contacted Interpol.

They have traces
on her credit cards,

bank accounts, you name it.

She makes a move,
we'll know about it.

And if you don't start
taking care of yourself,

I'll know about it.

Marge said you went to work
a week early.

Don't you worry about anything.

Doug, would you
follow me out, please?

You keep an eye
on your mother, okay?

I will. I know you will.

I'm just here
to see your mother.

Can I talk to you?

I have nothing to say.

Look, I have something to say.

Please.

I fucked up.

I fucked up like I never
fucked up before in my life.

I made a mistake,
and I'm paying for it.

But she set me up.

She almost killed my mother
and she almost killed me.

Laura, you're the best thing
that ever happened to me.

And it kills me to think
that I threw it away.

I never meant to hurt you.

I'm so sorry.

I love you.

Nice furniture.

Yeah, it 's my roommate, Lisa' s.

Hey, look.

A VCR that actually has
the correct time.

No more blinking 12:00.

What would I do without you?

Thanks.

Well, I guess I'll see you
in a couple weeks

when I come back for tryouts.

Well, I better hear from you
before then.

You will.

You know, this is a big place.

You sure you don't want me
as a roommate?

I just need some time.

I got you.

Bye.
Bye.

Yeah?

Hold on.

You Doug Gordon?

Phone.

Yeah, hello?

How's tryouts, slugger?

Melissa?

You remembered
my voice. How sweet.

After all this time.

Where are you? Oh, come on.

The last thing I need
in my life is more cops.

Who said anything
about the cops?

Well, then, why are you so
concerned about my whereabouts?

I want to see you.

You're lying.

It's true.

I can't stop thinking about it.

The first night in the car.

The boat.

I close my eyes,
and all I see is you.

Melissa?

I can't stop thinking
about it, either.

Are you in Washington?

Why do you care?

Because I want to be there.

With you.

They're looking for me.

We'll have to be careful. I understand.

Are you sure
you want to do this?

I do.

Okay, swear.

I swear.

Now swear on Laura's life.

Look, Melissa, do you want
to be with me or not?

Only if you swear
on Laura's life.

I swear.

Say the whole thing.

I want to be with you, Melissa.

I swear on Laura's life.

That's better.

Now tell me where you are.

No, I'll come for you.

Hello?

Yeah, hi.

What's the matter?

She's back.

Well, did you call the police?

Yeah, I did.
Just be really careful, okay?

I mean, lock your doors
and shit.

I think you're being
just a little bit paranoid.

I mean, she couldn't possibly
have any idea where I am.

All right?

Yeah, okay.

So relax.

Yeah, all right.
I... Look, I'm sorry.

Oh, wait, hold on.
I was just making some tea.

Oh, here, my roommate
wants to say hello.

No, Laura, Laura...
Doug, be nice. Just say hello.

Hi, slugger.

Melissa... Did I overhear correctly?

You called the police?

If you hurt her,
I will fucking kill you!

Oh, well, Doug,
you swore on her life,

so I guess the ball's
in my court now.

Doug said to say goodbye.

Oh, I wanted to talk to him.

He said to say good night.
He has to go to bed early.

Something about tryouts
tomorrow.

That sounded close.

I hate thunderstorms.

Ever since I was a child.

Me too.

Oh, great.

Oh, that's okay.

I think there are some candles
around here somewhere.

Sounded nice.

Huh?

Doug.

Yeah, he is.

We're just trying to iron out
a few things,

but we really love each other.

That's nice.

Three years?

God, I envy you.

I was in love once,

but his heart
was in another place.

So, what is it that you're
trying to work out?

I don't... What did he do?

Fuck some other girl?

Excuse me?

Did he put his cock
somewhere he shouldn't have?

I think I'm gonna
go find a flashlight.

Lisa?

Lisa, open up!

The door's stuck!

You scared the shit out of me.

Lisa?

Why don't we talk
about Doug's other girlfriend?

I'm at the address right now.

Good evening, miss. Hello, Officer.

Can I help you?

Yeah, I received a call
about a disturbance.

You did?

Anyone else here
besides yourself?

No, just me.
I'm all alone.

There's nothing wrong except
that I got a little scared.

All the lights went out.

Yeah, I know.
The whole neighborhood's down.

Sure you're okay?

Yeah, I'm fine.

Well, just the same,
maybe I should check the house.

Sure, if you want.

Yeah, I love old houses.

Yeah, me too.

What's in here?

Oh, that's
my roommate's storage space.

She has the keys. She went out
to the movies tonight.

Oh, yeah.

Well, I'll be.

Wife's got the exact same vase.

Aah!

Laura, you're awake.

Good, because we're gonna
play a little game.

You like games, Laura,
don't you?

Now, here's how we play.

First, we make a list

of all the wonderful things
that you have that I don't.

And then...

And then...

we remove them...

surgically.

Now, Doug said something
about you having a kind heart.

Laura!

Fuck you, you bastard!

You think you can fuck me?

You fucking bastard!

How do you like it?

Fuck you!

Goddamn you!

Where is she?

I'm not fucking around with you!
Where is she?

Gonna shoot me now, Doug?

I will fucking kill you.
Where is she?

You're a killer now, is that it?

Well, you know,
guns are pretty messy.

You sure you can handle it?

Because it might be kind of hard
without these.

It's gonna be okay.
