[lion roaring]

[dramatic orchestral music]

[suspenseful music]

[guns firing in distance]

Over here!

[booming in distance]

[gunfire rattling in distance]

How are we gonna get across?

The cable.

I said the cable, now move it!

[whistling and
booming in distance]

So, the rest of us
could cross here.

Bing, go back by the bridge,

set up diversionary
fire a minute from now.


Bernstein, you're first up.

Do it.

[gunfire rattling in distance]

Denunzia, you're next.

Eh, I don't think so, Pierce.

Move it.


Pierce, ow!

[gunfire rattling in distance]

[machine guns firing]

Help, help!

[bell ringing]

-What's wrong?

Somebody's stuck on the table.

I'm gonna go down there.


All games are hereby terminated.

All players near
the cable crossing,

prepare to lend
assistance as necessary.

All games are hereby terminated.

Ah, help!

Help me!

Pierce, help!

Help me, help me!

Hold on, son.

Hold on, now there's Michael.


Pull up!

I can't!

Bullshit, you can!


Hang on, Denunzia.

Grab me!

Yup, yup!

Yeah, he's got him!


Hold him.

Hang on Denunzia, hang on.

Hold on!




Hang on.

Okay, now easy, easy.

Come on, hang on.

You've got it, ease in.

Good job, Micheal, good job.

Come on.

You're okay, man.

Come up to headquarters.

Messed up.

Pretty bad.

Might've been worse.

Come on, let's go.

Hey, nice work.

All right.



What are we doing this weekend?

Working here, what else?

No, no, that was last weekend.

Oh Sugar Bear,
don't get started.


I'm getting tired of seeing
your face around here.

I'd like to see you in college.

Hell, yeah, yeah.

And so would my mom.

Yeah, I know.

I want to ask you something.

Why did you continue
to hang around

with an old retired
grunt like me?

I can't even pay
you a decent wage.

Sugar Bear.

I'll tell you why,

because you're good
at playing war games.

You got a good talent for it.

Everything you do here
smiles back at you.

You need to get serious,
get off your butt,

give it a chance and
go back to school.

Hey, Sugar Bear.

Give me a little
space, all right?

professor David Forrest,

better known as Dr. Dave,

federal penitentiary today.

The point is you
ran the stop sign

and you're gonna pay for it.

I don't have time for this.


Oh, great, a match book.

Yeah, it's where I work.

Call me later.

Is there a name

It's none of your business.

[Reporter] This has been
At Six Action News

reporting to you live

with the release of
Dr. Dave Forrest,

who was catapulted
into international fame

as his homemade
hallucinogen Forest Fire

became the fuel of a
generation of love children.

Dr. Dave is being
released today

from maximum security
Solidad state prison.

You may remember him
back in the sixties.

I was just a young kid
of 16 at that time,

he was convicted.


Hey, fellas.

[people chattering]

It's been a long time in.

-Good luck to you, I mean it.
-Thank you very much, Lorne.

Dr. Dave, what do you plan
to do with your freedom?

Freedom, I'm going to see

-if it exists.
-Dr. Dave!

Who has all the money?

Money, they only
gave me 200 dollars.

You got any?

Oh come on we heard two million.

The two million sir, is that it?

Dave, where's your daughter?

She gonna be here?

Where'd you get
those, from Puccini?

You look like Madame Butterfly.

Just keep writing
your lies anyway.

How does it feel to
be out after 17 years?

It's beginning to feel great.

Hey, Fletcher!


Take it easy, Dave!

I'm still as lovely.

Dave, what do you have
to say to the kids today?

What, babe, don't drink.

Isn't that the
worst drug there is?

Check your own statistics.

It kills more than...
[drowned out by chattering]

Hey, sir.

That's fine, Dave.

Can you give us some
room here please?

Excuse us here, please.

-Excuse us, please.

I just plan to do
nothing about it.

Please tell us
where you're going.

My god, I got nothing to say.

What about Forest Fire?

We gonna be seeing

any more of that?
And the book,

I wanna know about the book!
Not from me you won't.

Where are you going?

Can you tell us where
you're going please?

Excuse me.

Wait, move.

Are you Dave Forrest's daughter?


Dave Forrest's daughter.

Will you be seeing him
any time in the future?


Oh goddamn, David, it's
good to have you back.

-Welcome home.
-Ah, it's good to be back.

Thank you.

God, it's good to
see you out here.

It's great to be out.

God is good to be out.

It's so goddamn good to be out.

Driver a little faster, please.

I want to lose that
place as quick as I can.


When I was going on the
merry-go-round yesterday

you have to go round, sign
out at all these places.

The hacks were all saying to me,

"Hey Dave, where are you
going with the money?

You're going to
the islands, Dave?

You gonna get an Island?

Where are you going to
spend the two million?"

I told him, "Don't
worry about it."

I said, "If I got 2 million

I'll let my accountant
do it for me."

Dave, I want you
to listen to me.

That $2 million is a
17 year old problem

that is just not going away.

Something has to
be done about that.

Charles, you know and I know

there was never any two million.

I made Fire

for people to have
a good time with.

I gave it away.

I never sold any of it.

Dave, Dave, I know that.

Hey, CJ.

-Hi Lee, how you doing?
-Have a good one.

Oh, Roscoe!


Hi, Rosa.


Did my father get back yet?

He didn't?

Oh, well, I'm going
to be working tonight

at the Egg cafe.

So ask him to come
by there, okay?

Is this it?

Is this where you live?

What, it's not much,
Dave, but it's home.

It looks a bit lonely to me.

Howard, you sure you
can't stay for supper?

Things to do, people to see.

Oh, Michael!

Hi, Mike.

Hi, Howard.

Have you seen Howard's
new commercial, darling?

-No, no, afraid not, Howard.
-It's okay.

We got channel five
covered day and night.

Tune in, you can't mess it.

Howard was just leaving.

You sure you have
to get back so soon?

Got to deliver on my promises.

Business can't run itself.

Oh I guess you're right.

See you, Barb.

Good seeing you, Howard.


What's that?

My new commercial.

Come on!

If we hurry we can catch it.

Come on, darling.

Come on, it's fun.

Ma, listen, I need to-

Shh, shh.

[tense music]

[woman screaming]

It's me.

You called?

Here comes the good part.

Stand back.

This is a job for
the Exterminator!

[creatures screaming]

Those aren't real.

Thank you, you saved my life.

I won't be back.

So what'd you think?

Yes Michael, what did you think?

That was fine, Howard.

Fine, excuse me.

Michael, what's with you?

Mom, I was trying to tell you.

I had an accident
in the Mustang.

What, are you all right?

Yeah, I'm fine, I'm fine.

But the fender's on
the disabled list.

Oh Michael, why can't
you be more careful?

Mom, it wasn't my fault.

This girl, she
plowed right into me.

Women drivers for ya.

Her insurance is gonna cover it.

Michael, that is not the point.

I trusted you with my car.

Piece of junk, needs
some bodywork anyway.

That piece of junk
happens to be my car,

and I happened to
be very fond of it.

Now, since you decided
not to go to college

maybe you should get
yourself a real job

and buy your own car.

I'll take care of it, all right?


Tonight, it's covered.

Michael, I don't
want to butt in, but-

Then don't, Howard.

Boy seems under a
lot of pressure.

Good luck, Dave.

You're not coming?

[laughing] No, I'm not coming.

This is between you and CJ.

All right.

It's going to be all right.

Now listen, when you're
ready, you give me a call.

I'll come pick you up.

Yeah, all right.




-Hey Matt!
-How are ya?

How are ya?

Oh my God, look at you!

-I'm great.
-Oh god, you look...


Well, thanks.

Obvious you're
jealous of my beauty.

Is this tie dye?
Look at this.

What is this?

-That's a beer belly, huh?
-Little paunch.

Little paunch, little paunch.

A little shading in the beard?

Listen, I got a table
for you right here.

-Right here.
-All right,

sit right down.

Saved it just for you.

You sure did.

Where's CJ?

She's in the back.

So what can I get you?

You know what I'd really like?

Name it.

I want it.

Max, I've been
dreaming for years

about one of those
big fat soy burgers.

I remember Dave, but listen,

you're kinda out of luck
with that, you know?


Well I mean,
they're out of date.

They went the way of love
beads and peace marches.

-You're kidding me.

Just give me a salad.

A nice green salad
with no iceberg lettuce

because I still back
Cesar Chavez, man.

Right on.

-Okay, salad.
-All right.

No, Caesar salad.

-You got it, Max.
-All right.


Send out CJ, will you?

You got it.



[glass shattering]

Don't you try anything.

Relax, young lady.

My name is McClean, FBI.

Oh, FBI.

Well, can I get you anything?

A cup of coffee maybe?

How about a search warrant?

I'm here to talk
about your father.

But my father has paid his debt.

So why don't you
get off his case?

His case is far from over.

Are you talking about that money

that he's supposed to have
hidden away somewhere?

It's a concern.

There isn't any
money Mr. McClean.

Some people think there is.

Well, those people are
just going to have to deal

with the disappointment
now, aren't they?

A couple of million
dollars worth?

Oh, come on!

We're talking about dangerous
people, Ms. Forrest,

real dangerous people.

Why don't you earn my
taxpayers dollar then

and lock them up?

We can't make our move
till they show their face.

Oh, and you want to
use my father as bait?

No, forget it.

My father is a free man now.

He's got his whole
life ahead of him.

Ms. Forrest.

You have no idea what's
really involved here.

But believe this.

I am the very best friend you

and your father have right now.

Trust in that friendship,

and you both may live
to see Christmas.

If you see or hear anything
that doesn't sit right with you

you call me.

Day or night.

Please take it.

[lightly tense music]

[light music]

Max, did you see someone just-

Listen, kiddo, there's somebody

waiting to see you
over at table 10.

Go say hello, huh?

[gentle music]

Oh yeah.

Look at this, oh.

Let me take a peek.


Look at that beauty.

-Oh, mmmmm.
-Hi, Daddy, oh!

God, it's good to see you.

It is good to see
you too, welcome out.

Thank you.

I missed you there today.

I was there.

You were gone.

Dad, don't pull a
guilt trip on me.

Okay, okay, it's no biggie.

Something wrong?


Something wrong?

No, some jerk almost trashed
my car today, that's all.

-Hi, remember me?


What are you doing here?

I came to talk to you
about getting my car fixed.


It's not a good time.

No, this is a very good time.

Hey CJ, CJ.

Why don't you introduce
me to your dude here?

He's not my, he's...

Who are you, anyway?

Name's Michael, Michael Hawkins.

All right, sit down, Michael.

You make me nervous standing up.

Yeah, you should see him drive.

You jump around too much.

This is my father,
David Forrest.

Pleased to meet you, Michael.

Dr. Dave?

-I saw you on TV.
-That's right.

Guilty as charged,

-time served.
-Why don't you two

just have a party?

I'm going to go work.

Hey, wait a sec.

We have something
to discuss here too.

Have some bread.


Oh yeah, she's been
like that all her life.

So what's your trip, Michael?

My trip?

Yeah, you know,
what are you into?

What's your trip,
what turns you on?

Ah well, I play survival games.

[laughing] You do huh?

Well, don't we all?

No, no, no, survival games.

They're games, on
weekends we play.

Fake Wars, fake battles,
fake blood, fake guns.

It probably doesn't sound too
interesting to you though.

No, that's very interesting.

I mean, I just spent 17
years with a bunch of fakes.

What do you think,
is survival into us?

Are we into it?

Metaphysical, my boy.

Don't worry about it.

Here you go, enjoy your dinner.

I'll be back to talk with
you in a little while.

Artichoke, we said cantaloupe!


Tonight is really a
bad night for me, okay.

I really don't think
we can talk about this.

No, I think this is a
very good time for this.

Please, Michael, it's
not a good night.

I'm trying to work here.

Hey, if you two want
to be alone, honey.

It's okay with me.

Daddy, we don't
want to be alone.

We're not together.

We don't know each other.

We just met.

I don't know who this man is.

Don't worry about it.

I was young once.



Hey Max, look,

I'm just really making a mess
out of things tonight, okay?

I gotta get out of here.

Sure, kid, take a
break, go ahead.

So what's this
about an accident?

Well earlier today
she hit my car.

-while I was driving home.

-Nobody was hurt?
-Good, here we go.

Let's take care of it.

Not you.

-No, no, I'm Dad.
-I'll talk to you later.

I'm Dad.

Enjoy my meal.

Where do we begin, CJ?

I mean, where do we start?

I don't know.

Guess we're supposed to go
forward for now not look back.

Hey, that's Bob Dylan.

You know, Dad,

I want you to be happy.

I do, I really do.

I'm happy.

I'm really happy, CJ.

I'm happy to be out.

I'm happy to be here with you.

I'm just happy.

I've been by myself
for a long time now.

I don't know how to do this.

Hey CJ, don't worry about it.

It's just that old, mysterious,
cosmic root of existence.

I'm trying to have a real
conversation with you

about you and me.

Not all this other bullshit
that you throw around.

Well, I guess I need a
little help with that then.

That's for sure huh?

The bullshit?

Yeah, that's for sure.

You know, this is really,
really hard for me.

I mean, you're out, your here.

What do you want me to do, CJ?

Move to another town?

You know when I grew out
of being a little girl

you just didn't want to
deal with me anymore.

It wasn't that I didn't
want to deal with you, CJ.

I didn't have a choice.

I was in jail.

I couldn't do the things
for you I wanted to do.

I mean, I missed you too.

I love you very much.

And I wanted to be with you.

Dad, I am just
really pissed at you.

That's all I have to say, okay?

Yeah well I'm a little...

Excuse me, sir.




Hey, wait a second,
that's my, ah!

[screaming] Ow!


Shut up!

Hey, let her go!



[tense music]



Let's go!

-[tires screeching]
-[energetic music]

Look, look, there they are!

That's them right there!

Red light's coming
right up our ass.


I'm gonna lose these guys.

[tires screeching]

Hold on.

[tires screeching]

[siren blaring]

[tires screeching]

[siren blaring]

[tires screeching]

[bell dinging]

[energetic music]

Look, wait, there they are!

[tires screeching]


96 Lincoln, I've
lost the vehicle.

Clark and Gregory Way.

[tense music]

Oh shit, they're not there!

Let's go back to the restaurant.

Are you sure?

Yeah we can call the
police from there.


This is crazy.

I mean, what we did then was,

this is now and it's,

I mean you can't be serious.

This doesn't make any sense.

Makes no sense.

I mean, you know,
we can't do this.

We'll never get away with it.

What are you doing?

Hey, come on.

What are you doing?

What are you doing?


Come on, asshole.

Come on.



-[people chattering]
-[radio chatter]


[man over radio] Unit 12, 1020
in progress at 122 Fifth Drive.

Oh my God!

What happened?

Someone shot Max, the owner.

Hey, they were here before.

They left in a hell of a hurry.

Let's go.

You think I should
tell the police?

Let's go, now!

Yeah, why don't you?

-[tense music]
-Excuse me, officer?

Officer, those two in
the car back there,

right behind you, they
were here earlier.


[tires screeching]

We got the old man.

But not the girl.

Yeah, well some punk got
in the way, I don't know.

And then the cops showed up.

Yeah, but we lost them.

Well I think it'd be
better if we leaned on him,

it'll go much
quicker, believe me.

Okay, hey.

Hey baby, okay.

Whatever you say.

Why did you pull me away?

We're probably suspects.


Take my word for it.

That cop that we lost?

He's got the make of my car.

Would you just take
me home please?

I don't think that's
such a good idea.

What do you mean?

What I mean is those
kidnappers wanted you too.

So where should we go?

[sighing] I know a safe place.


[crickets chirping]

What is it?

What's going on, fellas?


This reminds me
of my old commune.

This is your old
commune, asshole.

It is?

It is?

It is!

Look, Cassandra's painting.

Old green eyes, that's it!

Do I know you?

Did we trip together?

Who hit me, what for?

There's nothing.

Ice, I found something.

What are you looking for?

Whoa. [laughing]

Looks like a
combination to a safe.

Yeah, it does.

Oh is it?

I don't know.

Don't bullshit me, doc.

Where's the safe,
where's the money?

What money?

Don't fuck with me!

Look, I agree, that does
look like a combination.

But it's not, it's my
numerological number.

You see the first
set is my name.

The second set is my
birthday and the rest-

That's enough with the
hippie voodoo crap!

Let me work him over.

No, cool it.

I'm going to give the
good doctor tonight

and tomorrow night to
refresh his memory.

You see doc?

I'm talking to you!

Tomorrow night when the
little hand is on the rhino

and the big hand is on the pony,

time's up.

And Doc.

[tense music]

Don't waste your time
trying to escape.

'Cause they'll waste you.

God Charles, where are you?

Oh, no thanks.

Well, thank you.

You know, you're dealing with
people who play for keeps.

Now I still think you
ought to go to the police.

Sugar Bear, we can't.

They're probably after us.

Besides, if the kidnappers
think we called the police,

they might kill my dad.

Do you have any idea where
they could have taken him?

I just don't know.

All right, listen.

Whenever there's a kidnapping,

there's a ransom, right?


Yeah, I don't have any money.

CJ, you're Dave's daughter.

Now the kidnappers
probably think

you know where the cash is.

So what I suggest,

you go back to your
apartment tomorrow morning,

wait for the kidnappers
to contact you,

and then take it from there.

I think he's right, CJ.


Goodnight, kids.

Good night, Sugar Bear.

Thank you.

Oh God, Charles, I'm
so glad you're there.

I've been trying to
call you all night.

Listen, I don't even know
how to tell you this.

My father's been
kidnapped and Max is dead.


Have you called-

I can't call the police.

They might think I killed Max.


And the kidnappers,

I don't know, if they
think I called them,

I don't know what they
might do to my father.

Yes, yes, I understand.

You know, I think we should
get together tomorrow

and submit a counter proposal.

Charles, what are
you talking about?

I can't go into it right now.
I'm in a meeting.

Not alone?

That's right.

Well who's there with you?

Well certainly, is
someone I should think

with enough authority.

The police?

Something like that, yeah.

The FBI, that guy.
What's his name?

McClean, he's trying
to trace me, right?

Well, I believe
you're right on that.

Now, how can I get in
touch with you tomorrow?

Why don't you meet
me at my apartment

tomorrow morning at,

10 o'clock?

Yeah, 10.

At 10 o'clock.

All right.

Well, very good then.

I'll look forward to
seeing you tomorrow.

Good night.

The FBI.

What do they have
to do with this?

I don't know.

This guy McClean,

I think they're
after the money too.

You know, he warned me that
something like this may happen.

God, I'm in deep shit.

["Lean on Me"]

I think we're in deep shit.

You know Michael,
I'm really sorry

I got you into all this.

You haven't heard me complain.


Why don't you take the couch?

I'll take the floor.

Ever since then, Sugar Bear

Yeah, I know how that is.

I used to know that.



Baby, you were something else.

Remember Monterrey?

When Otis and Janis and
you just blew 'em away?

When you ate your music, man!


And when you threw it down, man

and you peed on it,

you lit it on fire?

You show the who what?

I hope you found peace, brother.

Charlie and Max.

Boy have times changed.

Heh, look at me.

Tripper, whatever
happened to you, man?

Where are you?

[fire crackling]


[lightly somber music]

You okay?


It's been a rough night, huh?


They can't kill your father.

If they think he's got
that money stashed, huh,

they got to take
good care of him.

He's always been,

so special.

I never really

could just tell him that
I love him. [sobbing]

[light rock music]

Oh boy, he's not here yet.

Should be here any minute.

He'll be in a limo, he
drives a limo, okay?

All right.

Hey, everything's
going to be okay.

I'll bet you there's a
message on your machine

right now from your father.

You think so?

Yeah I do.


I'll check my messages, okay?

I'll be right back.

All right, I'll be here.

Michael, help!

Let me go, ow!

Let go!



[suspenseful music]

Where's the girl, what
the fuck is going on here?

What the fuck is going on?


Come on!

Come on!

Come here!


Oh no!

-Let's go!
-Oh god!

[both screaming]

[tense music]



You okay?

Yeah, I can't believe it.



My god, oh my god!


You fucked up,
man, you fucked up!

You fucked up!

[gasping] God!

Oh shit.

Hey, hey, hey!

What are you doing in
the ladies' fitting room?

I will not have you
getting your kicks on!

[woman screaming]

[upbeat music]

Excuse me, excuse me.

-Are you a policeman?
-No, Ma'am.

Security on the lookout
for theft and vandalism.

Oh great, theft and vandalism.

Yeah, theft and vandalism.

[glass shattering]


Oh, well don't worry
about the kids.

The store's insured.

Let's go.

Just be more careful
in the future, huh?

This guy's got radar, let's go!


Hey now hold on a second, pal!

What do you think this?




Okay vandal, we're turning
you over to the police.



I have to tell you something.

Yeah, what?

When they booked us,

I took a peek at
yojur rap sheet.



[gentle music]

That, yeah.


Celestial Jewel.


Pretty silly, huh?

Should have been Star.

It's much simpler.

Why didn't they think of that?

I don't know.

I really don't know.

[keys clinking]

About time.

I won't be long.

Reckless driving,
disturbing the peace,

willful destruction of
private and public property.


Come in.

Are you all right?

Oh yeah, I'm fine.

Thanks for coming.

Joe, how the hell are you?

Fine, Mr. Duran, how are you?

Charles, this is
my friend, Michael.

Charles Durant.


I appreciate what you did.

Thank you.

Heard a lot of nice things
about you, Mr. Durant.

Listen, I'm sorry I'm so late.

But I just got your message.

And then I went by your house

and apparently I just
missed you there too.

It's okay.

I heard that Max
committed suicide.

You heard what?


-That's right.

The FBI just confirmed the
cause of Max Kimble's death.

The angle of entry
was consistent

with a self-inflicted wound

and his prints were
all over the weapon.

Well, what about my father?

Well, any ransom demands?

Calls from the
alleged kidnappers?


I'm sorry, Ms. Forrest,

but we can't file a
missing persons report

until 48 hours have elapsed.

Hey, we saw him get kidnapped.

You may have seen what
looked like a kidnapping.

What, what are
you talking about?

Well, it could be this.

A man gets out after 17
years in the stirrer.

He's got a couple of million
dollars stashed away someplace.

He fakes his own kidnapping.

The body is never recovered

and he ends up in Mexico,
tossing down margaritas.

You are out of line.

Hey, we don't have any
real evidence to go on.

Come on in.

That is ridiculous!

Thank you.

Mr. Durant, you want
to sign for her please?

Of course.

You're free to go, young lady.


We still got to sign
you off yet, sit down.

I'll wait for you
outside, okay, Michael?

All right.

Come on CJ, let's go.

Yeah, okay.

Wait a second,
what about Michael?

We have somebody waiting for us.


The FBI.

McClean, maybe he
knows something,

what did he say?

He'll tell us what he
knows at Katanya's lounge.

So let's get out of here.


Okay, just wait a second.

I need to talk to Michael
for a minute, okay?


-Don't be too long.
-I won't.

Listen, thank you very
much for your help.

All right.

All right, I'll
see you in the car.


That your bike, Mac?

Hey, I'm legal there.

-I'm serious, man.

I got to go to take
care of something.

It's really important.


I just can't say right now.

I'll call you when I
get home, all right?

Sure you'd be okay?

Yeah, I'll be okay.

Thank you.

You've really been a lifesaver.

Excuse me, who do
I see about this?

Somebody want to take my
money in here or what?

Probably all out having
donuts or something.

Oh, back from your
coffee break, good.

Where were you when
my last three bikes

got ripped off, huh?

[light music]


[suspenseful music]

[bike revving]


Hey, hey, hey, my bike, my bike!

[truck honking]

[bike revving]

[dispatcher] Attention, all
units be on the lookout

for a red dirt bike just
stolen in front of Fish and 23.

Last seen heading
eastbound Grant.

This is Lincoln 94.

Your red dirt bike just spotted

headed south on
Maple, in pursuit.

[officer] This is Lincoln 22.

We got him west on Elm and
we're joining in pursuit.

[tires screeching]

[bike revving]

[siren blaring]

[bike revving]

[tires screeching]

[bike revving]

[tires screeching]

[bike revving]

All right, all right, ow!

You are hurting me!

I'm coming!

All right, there we go.

Open the door.

Right, right.

Get in there.

[tires screeching]

[suspenseful music]

[bike revving]

Let go of me!


Oh shit.




Oh baby, I'm sorry.

They got you too.

It's okay.

Are you all right?

Yeah I'm fine.


What'd I tell you, Dave?

Didn't I tell you this
was going to happen?

Oh, Dave.

You never listen to me.

You all right?

Yeah I'm fine.

Jesus Christ.

[bike revving]


Michael, what's going on here?

Do you have any idea
how worried I've been?

Mother, would you listen to me?

Now something
terrible has happened.

Oh, you're telling me!

The police were just here.

I mean, what's this about
a stolen motorcycle?

And where's my car?

Don't worry about
your car, all right?

Who's this?

Michael, this is Mr.
McClean from the FBI.

Oh good, I'm glad you're here.

Now will you please
tell me what's going on?

Out all night, your mom
is real concerned, Mike.

I'd like to ask you
a few questions.

What do you know
about CJ Forrest?

She and Mr. Durant
were kidnapped.


By the same guys
that grabbed Dave.

Who's Dave?

They probably want to use
her to get to her father,

make him tell them
where the drug money is.

Drug money?

You know what, I'll bet
you they're the same guys

that killed Max!

Max is dead?

Oh my God.

Wait, who the hell is Mac?

Friend of that weirdo,
Dr. Dave Forrest.

He was on the news.

Thanks for your cooperation.

Hey, where are you going?

I'll find your girl
and her father.

You just sit tight.

Sit tight, are you kidding me?

Mr. Hawkins, people's
lives are at stake here.

Let the professionals
handle it, okay?


Can we talk?

After all I am your mother.

Somehow, I'll get
us out of this.

Do you believe me?


Little hippie magic.

-Hey come on, man!
-Hey back off, scuzz bag!

Fiery little bitch.

I like 'em like that.

Just leave her alone.


Finally got a rise
under the old doctor.

All right, now, knock it off.

You little scumbag.


Please what?

Please just leave her alone.

Gee, I don't know, doc.

Harlan here is real
attracted to your daughter

and I hate to frustrate him.

Because he gets mean.

Meaner than a stuck pig.

Little trim from
your daughter here

might be the only way
to keep him peaceful.

Unless you put your mind
to something you know

about high finance.

Look, I don't remember
anything about any money.

Doc, don't bullshit me.

Look, I was alone.

I don't remember anything.

Doc, put two and two together.

There was someone else, but-


I don't know, it
was a little person.

He was short.

I just, I don't remember.



Don't fuck with me, Doc.

I don't remember!

You better start thinking, Doc.

You better start
thinking real hard.

Your time is running out.

Theirs too.

Now, Michael, let's
start with the drugs

and work our way up to
the kidnapping and murder.

Now, honey, why didn't you
tell me you had a drug problem?

Mom, I'm not on drugs.

You're confused.

Listen to your mother, kid.

Hey, keep eating, Howard.

Oh, you were always
such a good boy.

I just don't understand.

Listen kid, whatever you do,

don't get mixed up with
this Forrest character.

Hey, what the hell do you
know about him anyways?


I was a volunteer deputy

back when we raided
that hippie commune.

Boy, that was something.

All those grungy dope
addicts, living like animals.

We used to call it
the free love arcade.

Where was this commune?

The old Williams barn
up on route 17, why?

I gotta go.

Michael, you can't leave yet.

The police still
want to talk to you

about that stolen motorcycle.

Mom, I'll explain that later.

Howard, I need your car.

Oh, I don't think so.

Hey, Mike.

[car revving]

[tires screeching]

We know you were making it.

We know you were selling it.

Half the fucking
state went cold turkey

when you got bumped.

So what's it going to be, Doc?

There's no money.


Oh Jesus, Christ,
leave him alone!

He doesn't know
where the money is.

The fuck he doesn't.

She's telling you the truth.

You're wasting your time.

Maybe you're right.

Harlan, time to negotiate.

All right, wait a
minute, wait a minute!


You want money, I got money.

Oh yeah?

How much?

I can get your
$250,000 cash tomorrow.

Just stop this.

Sorry, Davie.

A quarter of a
mill won't cut it.


You know Doc, somehow
I get the feeling

we're not communicating.

Maybe if I show you what I mean.

[tense music]

Don't, Dave!

[CJ screaming]

Don't even think about it.

Get rid of that piece of shit.



-[gun firing]
-[CJ screaming]

[suspenseful music]

[tires screeching]

Police were here
looking for you today.

What I should do is
haul your ass downtown

and have them book you.

You wouldn't do that.

Don't tempt me, Michael.

Sugar Bear, the police
won't listen to me.

I know where they're
keeping Dave and CJ.

What, that old barn or commune
or whatever they call it?

That's a pure guess.

No, it's a hunch, okay?

Look, let's just go down
there and check it out.

We've got nothing to lose.

We've got nothing to lose?

We're not talking
survival camp here, boy.

We're talking real ammo,
real blood and guts.

Now I say let the
authorities handle it.

♪ My my CJ right by ♪

[CJ sobbing]

Oh baby.

Remember I used to
hold you in my arms?

Just sing that to you
until you drifted off?

-God I love you so much.

And I miss you.

Daddy, we can't
talk about this now.

We're really in trouble.

Now try to remember
for me, okay?

You said you weren't
alone that night.

You said there was
somebody else with you.

Somebody short.

Who was it?

CJ, we were tripping.

I mean, it's always
somebody with us,

but somebody short
and dark, I remember.

Was it somebody who lived here?

A friend of yours?

I mean come on, Daddy.

CJ, it was somebody short, dark,

and hairy.

-Oh jeez.
-Real hairy.

[sighing] Daddy, it
was the sixties.

Everybody was hairy.

Not the Hare Krishnas.

[CJ laughing]

You're never gonna
remember, are you?

17 years ago.

I mean, we all had
our stash places.

You had to keep our
stuff and everything.

So that we-
Wait, wait, wait,

stop right there!

I had my own stash,
'cause you're right,

that nobody knew about.

Daddy, is it there?

I'll bet it is.

It's right over there
under my man Bob.

Shh, don't point where.

See the stove?


By the left rear leg,

right next to it is a
brick and it's there.

I'll bet it's there.

The money is there?


CJ, there's no money.

I keep telling everybody

there's no money.
What the hell are you

talking about, then?

Forest Fire.

My last batch.

Oh, I bet it's there.

Oh, CJ, I bet it is.

Daddy, that's not
gonna get us anywhere.

Oh yeah.

It'll get us out of here.

I got a great idea.

Come here.

[tense music]

Excuse me.


Can I get a cup of coffee?



Do you ever lose it, that game?

I mean, you seem to
win all the time.


[music intensifying]u

I'll take some of that.

My pleasure.


Sugar Bear.

Who's the one that taught me
to always trust my instincts?

And who has been like a father
to me for the last 18 years?

And who's the one man,

no matter what will
always be by my side?

Wait a minute.

Now you can't wrap me
around your little finger

like you do your mom.

Now you quit trying
to sweet talk me, boy.



Can I borrow a weapon?


Why are you being so hard?

Trying to keep you from
getting yourself killed.

Goddammit, Sugar Bear!

People's lives are at stake here

and you're going to sit
back and do nothing.

Well, thanks a lot.

For them too.

[crickets chirping]

[tires screeching]


Where do you think you're going?

We thought you could
use some more coffee.



[lightly suspenseful music]

Take him out.

Agh! [groaning]


You sure this stuff
is still good?

I gave him almost
the whole thing,

it's not doing anything.

Don't worry about it.

When I made that stuff,
I made it to last.

Besides, the phosphopyridine LSD

has a half-life of 200 years.

He should be crawling
the walls any minute now.

I was a biochemist.

Trust me.

[lightly suspenseful music]

I'll take him out.

You take the guy on top.


And be careful.

You too.


Hey Doc, come over here.

You know Doc, in 10
minutes I'm a happy man.


I'm counting cash

while I'm sliding into
something juicy and sweet.


Hey come on, enough, all right!

10 minutes, Doc.

It's your choice.

[light suspenseful music]

Cover me.


Come on.

Cover me.

You got it.




Okay, come on.


[gun clacking]


-Aw, shit!



[gun clacking]






Oh, oh!


You're dead.

Back up, Dave.


What are you doing with a gun?


You're behind this whole thing.

Even Max.

He didn't commit
suicide, did he?

You killed him.

Oh no, I didn't.

Max couldn't take the pressure.

He never could.

That's too bad, but
at least more for me.

More what Charles?

There isn't any money.

It's all about money, Dave.

You know, back when you
were one with the universe

Max, Tripper and I, we
were dealing your Fire.

We set you up for the bust.

We thought we knew
where you hid the money.

And now quite simply, Dave,

[gun clacking]

you're going to remember
what you did with it

or I'm going to
kill you right now.

[gun firing]

[CJ screaming]

Jesus, stop it!

[tense music]

[fire crackling]



Oh, baby.


-Oh, god, Daddy!
-Baby we can't.

-Oh my god!
-Now come on,

I know the way out.

-Come on, baby.

[fire crackling]

What's the matter, Doc?

Can't take the heat?

This place is on fire!

Oh please, let us out of here!

Now where's the money?

The place is burning up!

No shit, Doc.

Look, we have to get
out of here, all of us!

Doc, where's the money?

There isn't any money!

Doc, you've got
from here to there

to find out or think
about where's the money.

What is there to think about?

You stupid ass!
Doc, you won't survive

with your daughter
barbecued, baby.

-I'm gonna fry her!
-You fry!


You pig, ah!


You again little boy?

Come for me, beach boy.





Watch yourself.

I got you, boy.

Come on.


Dad, Dad.

Here you are.

No, there's fire there too.

No, there's no way out of here,

too much fire!

You're not going anywhere.

Look, give it up.

If we don't get out of here now,

we're all going down.

Nobody is going down.

We're all going up.

Hey, Michael.

Michael, I know
what's happening.

Trust me.

It's all right, hon, yeah.

Tell me what's going on.

Go with her, yeah.

-Oh yeah.

[fire crackling]

-Jesus Christ!
-Oh, Dave, ah!


[CJ screaming]

We've gotta jump!

-He says we can do it!

[CJ screaming]



Sugar Bear, back here!

Are you all right?

We made it!

[tense music]

[fire crackling]

[gentle music]

I don't drink normally.

Dad, you don't do
anything normally.

That's right, CJ.

Yeah, Dave, come on.

It's a special occasion.

You're right, Sugar Bear.

And what's a few million
brain cells, more or less?

Allow me, Mrs. Hawkins.

Thank you, Dr. Forrest.

Please call me Dave.

Dave, and it's Barbara.

I'd rather stick with Dave.

[Barbara laughing]

Well Dave, try one of these.


Yeah, I think I will too.


Michael, Michael, your
mother's a wonderful cook.

What is this?

It steak tartare.

Is this raw meat?


Do you like it?

I'm beginning to love it.


This could be the beginning
of a beautiful relationship.

Oh, gee. [laughing]

Can we eat now?

Is that all right?

Dinner's ready.

Come on everybody.

Come on.

You know, it's really
too bad about McClean.

Yeah, well sometimes the good
guys just don't luck out.

Shame of it is,

after all that, there
wasn't any money.

What I always say is,

when all else fails,

hug your Teddy.

Oh, oh, oh.

Whoah, whoah wait a minute.

Wait a minute.

Wait a minute!

That's it, the
night I was busted,

I was with Tripper.

Then I was alone.

No, there was someone there,

there was someone
short, dark and hairy.

No, short, dark and fuzzy.

I was with,

when I got busted,
I was with Roscoe.


My Roscoe?

That's right.

Who's Roscoe?

My teddy bear.

And when we got busted and
Tripper gave me the money

I gave it to Roscoe, haha!

[upbeat music]

Oh god. [laughing]

All right, here we go.

Oh, wait, wait,
wait, wait, wait.

Wait, what's wrong?

He's my Teddy bear.

I had him since I was a baby.

CJ, there's two million
dollars in this Teddy bear.

I know.

All right, waste him.

Oh my God.

Look at all this money!

We're rich! [laughing]


We're rich, rich!

We'll keep that down there.

What are we doing?

[light music]

[tense music]


McClean, I thought
you were dead.



Oh my God, ah!

Oh god.

McClean, what are you doing?

Not McClean.

It's Tripper.

Don't you remember
from the commune?

Uncle Tripper?

-Ah, oh!

When the bureau sent me
to the commune undercover

I had the perfect setup.

I made a bundle.

I planted the money on Dave

and I arranged the bust
but the money disappeared.

I've been waiting 17 years.

I killed Max and Charles

and now all that's left
is me and the money.

I know it's here.

Where is the money?







Get off me, get off me!
