Quantum Leap (1989–1993): Season 2, Episode 20 - Maybe Baby - March 11, 1963 - full transcript

Sam leaps into the body of Buster who is in the process of kidnapping a baby along with a stripper whose stage name is Bunny O'Hare and whose story is constantly changing. Initially, he thinks they might be the parents but Bunny tells him she is trying to get the baby, Christie, back to its real mother. Turns out she had good reason to take the baby away from her father

Theorizing that one could time travel
within his own lifetime,

Dr. Sam Beckett led an elite group
of scientists into the desert...

to develop a top secret project
known as Quantum Leap.

Pressured to prove his theories
or lose funding,

Dr. Beckett prematurely stepped
into the project accelerator...

and vanished.

He awoke
to find himself in the past,

suffering from partial amnesia and facing
a mirror image that was not his own.

Fortunately, contact with
his own time was maintained...

through brain wave transmissions
with Al, the project observer,

who appeared in the form of a hologram
that only Dr. Beckett can see and hear.

Trapped in the past,
Dr. Beckett finds himself...

leaping from life to life,

putting things right
that once went wrong...

and hoping each time
that his next leap will be the leap home.

Buster! Buster!


Come on!

Buster, be careful!
Be careful!

Come on!

Watch it! Shh! Watch it.
The basket! Get the basket!


Come on.
Before Reed catches us.

Buster, what are you
thinkin' about?


Bunny, are you crazy?
Get back here!

Oh, Buster,
I love you so much for doin' this.

I could kiss you all over!

Oh, shoot. We woke her.
Come here, precious.

- Oh, boy.
- No, I told ya. It's a girl.

- ♪ Hey la, hey la ♪
- Come on, Buster. Join in.

Uh, listen.

- Uh, Bunny?
- Yeah, Buster?

Uh... I mean...

Uh, well, she sure is...
She's cute and everything.

- Sure she's cute.
- I told you she was cute.

She's the cutest little baby
in the whole wide world...

Even if her daddy is a lawyer
who's probably got...

half the state lookin' for us by now.

this leap was beginning to feel

like Bonnie and Clyde...
and a Baby.

Bonnie... Bunny, uh, you know,
about what we're doin' here...

Buster, you promised
to help me get my baby back.

Now, if you're gonna back out, you can
just let me and Christy out right now!

My baby... Your baby?

Of course. She's your baby.

Do you know where that map is?
We don't wanna miss our turn.

Uh, map.

Christy's skunk!

I can't believe you brought it!

How did you know
it was her favorite toy?

- Well...
- Look, Christy, it's P.U!

I hope you can figure this out.

I am such a zero when it comes
to readin' these things.

Well, we're in Texas.

Well, thank God we got you
on board, Buster.

Of course we're in Texas.

Yeah, and, uh, we're on our way
to, uh, Clayton, New Mexico?

So she can see her Auntie Margaret
and be safe. Yeah.

You know, Buster,
I can't believe we did this.

I've got my baby and you.

Even though I've only
known you two weeks,

I almost feel like
we're a family.

As harebrained as this all seemed,

getting Bunny and
her baby to safety

must have been what
I was here to do.

Why would she take your Christy,
Senor Reed?

I don't know, Maria.

Maybe she's crazy.

She is crazy. She talks about
my daughter as if she's her own.

- Do you know her last name?
- Uh, I believe it's O'Hare.

Bunny O'Hare? The stripper?

You know her?

Uh, yeah, I caught her act
at the Girls-A-Go-Go, once.

We dated for a while.
I was lonely.

My wife died a year ago
giving birth to Christy.

Do you have any idea
why she took your baby?

- Senor Reed, what are we going to do?
- No.

She told me that
she couldn't have children.

Maria, it's all right.

We'll find Christy.
We will find her. I promise.

Hold on, Mr. Dalton.
We put an A.P.B. out on the truck.

I'm sure the highway patrol
will get 'em before daylight.

Hey, that is my child out there.

I am not gonna sit around here
and wait for someone to find her!

Let's do it, Sheriff.

Why not?

She's acting kind of poky.

I guess she's all stuffed up again.

See, she's had this cold
for two weeks.

Well, then, she shouldn't
be traveling.

We don't have a choice, Buster.

Don't worry.
I know just the thing.

We'll find a gunfighter,
and we'll steam her.

Look at you.
You're all better now.

We just steamed you
like a bunch of broccoli. Ooh!

Well, here she is, good as new.

She's not Miss Poky-Butt anymore.

Are ya? Are ya? Oh!

Would you look
at this little pumpkin?

She looks... She looks great.

Well, I should get over to that icehouse
and get her some fresh milk.

- You didn't bring her any milk?
- Well, you didn't think of it either.

Well, yeah, but I-I've
never really been around, uh, a baby.

Buster, I thought you said you brought up
seven brothers and sisters.

I did...

Well, I did,

but, uh, see, I was the youngest.

Let me see if I've got
some money for milk.


- I don't seem to have any money.
- That's okay.

I got my whole
life savings here... $400.

Bye. Bye. I'll see you in a bit.

- Bye, Miss Pixie-Butt.
- Bye? Bye? Uh...

You're not gonna
leave me alone with the baby?

Buster, takin' care of a baby is somethin'
you never forget how to do.

It's as easy as fallin' off a bicycle.

Falling off a log or riding a bicycle.


Just watch Christy.
Bye, honey.

Oh, please...
Please, don't-don't do that.

Don't... Don't cry.
I'm bein' really serious here.

See, I... If you wouldn't cry...
'Cause I'm not really...

I'm not really Buster, see.

And the seven brothers
and sisters thing...

Well, it's not true, because...

Oh, no, don't... Don't...

I'll get P.U. see? Here you go.
Here's P.U. see?

Don't cry, Christy.
Please don't cry.

Look here,
I'll just rock you a little bit.

Oh. See, isn't that better?
Please don't... Just don't cry.

Okay. Yeah. I'll pick you up.
I'll pick you up like this.

Don't... Don't...
Don't cry, Christy, okay?

That's a girl. That's a girl.
That's a girl.

Don't cry.
Don't cry, Christy.

Oh, boy.

No wonder you've been crying.

I'd cry if I was holding me too.

You like big, scary guys, huh?

She sees you as you, Sam.

Well, she can see you, too, Al.

Of course.
All babies and animals can see me.

And blondes with very low I.Q.'s...

Al, please. Not in front...

All right.
That's wishful thinking.

Would you look at me?
I got a gold tooth.

I'm some kind of a Neanderthal guy.

There's a lot of women
that like guys with bodies like Buster's.

Take this Bunny O'Hare,
for instance. She likes it.

Bunny O'Hare?

Her last name is O'Hare?

- Yeah. The stripper.
- The stripper?

Yeah. Well,
her real name is, uh,

Thelma Lou Dickie.

I can understand
why she changed that.

She works at the Girls-A-Go-Go Lounge
where you are a bouncer.

- A bouncer? Al, I'm...
- Yeah.

You smell that, Al?

What? What do ya mean?
Smell what?

I... I think she, um...

Oh! No.

No, I can't smell...
I'm happy I'm a hologram.

What should I do?

You gotta clean her up and
then put a diaper on her.

- A diaper?
- Yeah.

Diaper. Yeah. Yeah.

Like a... Like a-a snappie
or a snuggie or snuggle...

No, it's 1963. Disposable diapers
haven't even been invented yet.

And I wish they would
never get invented.

They're lousy for the environment.
Try a pillow case.

A pillow case. Yeah.
Yeah, that'd be good.

Here, Christy. Look at this.

Look at the pretty lights!
Look at 'em!

Nope, that didn't work.
Oh, I remember something.

I remember something
I learned when I was a kid.

She'll probably like this.

Watch this, Christy.

Shh, shh, shh, shh.

♪ All around the mulberry bush ♪

♪ Uh, the monkey chased ♪
♪ the something ♪

♪ The monkey something ♪
♪ on the ground ♪

♪ And something happened ♪
♪ to the weasel ♪

What are you lookin'
at me like that for?

When I was a kid,
we couldn't afford puppets and stuff.

- She liked it.
- Maybe I'm here to change a baby.

- I wish it was that simple.
- What do you mean?

According to Ziggy,

there's a 75.6 percent chance...

that you're here
to return Christy to her father.

- Reed?
- Yeah.

Well, if Bunny and Reed
are divorced...

No, no, Bunny and Reed
were never married.

No. You mean...
You mean, she's a...

No. No.

Well, if they were never married
and Reed is her father, then...

Bunny's not Christy's mother.

And that means that you two
are kidnappers.

Bunny's gotta be Christy's mother.

She loves her.

She fell in love with her,
so she took her.

That's called kidnapping.

Look, I cannot believe
that Bunny lied to me.

She's a stripper.
Her whole act is a lie.

I've got a lot of experience
in this area.

I knew a stripper named Velvet
in Reno...

I don't wanna hear about it.
I don't wanna hear about it.

- I believe Bunny.
- Well, I believed Velvet.

- Bunny is telling the truth.
- How do you know?

I can see it by the
look in her eyes.

I'm back. Hi, honey.

Uh, excuse me, Sam, but I don't think
it was her eyes you were lookin' at.

What the hell kind
of a diaper is that?

Why didn't you use the ones
we brought in the truck?

Uh, well, um, I didn't wanna
go out and leave her alone.

Well, you get an "A" for creativity.

Honey, I have your milk right here.
Just a sec. I'll have it warmed up.

If you give her cold milk,
she'll just spit it up.

See, Al? See?

She knows Christy.

She knows what she likes.

She probably knows what I like too.

That doesn't make her a mother.

Just give me the original
history, please.

Uh, you were picked up
by the Texas Highway Patrol.

Reed got Christy back, and the two
of you got 20 years for kidnapping.

Well, then, I'm not here
to return Christy to Reed.

- How do you know?
- 'Cause in the original history,

Reed got Christy back.

But the two of you got 20 years!

If you give yourselves up,
maybe the court...

No, no, no, no.
See, I can't have leaped in here

to get Bunny and Buster
a reduced sentence.

It has to have something to do
with Christy.

And until you figure out what that is,
I'm stickin' with Bunny's plan.

Which is?

Well, I'm to get her and Christy
safely to Clayton, New Mexico.

And then what?

Well, then, uh...

Look, I don't know, but...

You know, you're not gonna find out
hangin' around here.

Al... Al, would you
hurry up, please?

I am! I am!

All right.

See you, Sam.
Bye, Christy.

- Nice Tattoo.
- Geez, Buster.

You act like you're the one
who's hungry.

Here you go, little one.

Here's your bottle, finally.

Bunny, whose baby is this?

- I told you. She's mine.
- Bunny, I know she's not yours.

- Whose is it?
- I don't know what you're talking about.


Look, I'm gonna go out in
the truck and get some diapers.

- Bunny, just tell me the truth.
- Please. You're gonna make her cry.

Buster, stop! Buster, stop it!
Don't, all right?

Just... Just don't hit me, okay?

Just don't hit me, okay?
Please, just don't hit me, okay?

- Bunny...
- No!

Bunny, I'm not gonna hit you.

I'm... I'm sorry I lied to you.

I just thought if I told you the truth,
that you wouldn't help me.

Help you what?

Get Christy back to her real mama.

Then... you're not her real mother.

No. But I didn't lie about the rest.

We are takin' her back to Clayton.

- That's where her mama lives.
- Bunny...

See, I was workin' as a babysitter
for Reed during the day.

And he told me that Christy's mama
died in childbirth, and I believed him.

I guess I wanted to, because...
Because then I could...

I could sort of pretend
that Christy was mine.

You... You can't have kids.

I don't think so. If I could,
I sure would've had one by now.

See, one day this package came,
and it was from Reed's brother.

It was kind of open, so I looked.

It was full of letters from
Reed's wife, Margaret.

She was alive, and she was
beggin' Reed to bring Christy back.

I guess he just took her or somethin'.

There was an address
and a phone number in Clayton,

and I called it, and we'd hardly
got to talkin' when Reed caught me.

He kept... He kept hitting me
and hitting me and...

And telling me terrible things
that he'd do if I told anybody.

And I... And I forgot
Margaret's phone number,

but I kept repeating
her address in my head.

It was 7232 Mesa Avenue,
Clayton, New Mexico.

See, 7-2...
That's my grandma's age.

We have to get Christy back
to her real mama, Buster,

before Reed starts
beatin' on her.

My daddy hit my mama,

and then he... then he started in
on me and my sister.

I just can't let that happen
to Christy.

Our location is in Comanche
County five miles west of Guston

Suspects are believed traveling
in a northwestern route to New Mexico.

Alert officers in Callahan,
Taylor and Shackelford counties...

to be on the lookout for a pickup
matching that description. Over.

They'd better be careful.
My baby's with them.

- Are you sure about New Mexico?
- Yeah.

We could be going in
the wrong direction.

She was always talking about
goin' back to her folks in New Mexico.

- Come on! We're losin' time!
- Tell that to "Gotta-Go Joe" back there.

Whoo! Boy,
it sure is cold out there.

Next time,
do it when we stop for gas.

- I did.
- Then don't drink so much coffee.

- Can we please just go?
- I only had two cups.

Christy and I sure appreciate
your believin' us, Buster.

Just... Just don't lie to me
again, Bunny, okay?

Cross my heart and hope to die.
Cross her heart too. See?

Yes! Yes!

You know,
she really should be in a car seat.

Why? I can hold her
on my lap like this. See?

If I'm goin' 10 miles an hour
and I slam on the brakes,

she could fly right
through the windshield.

Shh, Buster.
She can hear that.

I'm just trying to make a point.
She needs to be in a car seat.

Now we're comin' up on Abilene.
I think we should get one there.

Well, as long as it's a cute one.
Right, Christy?

Look, Buster, she winked at you.

- Car seats?
- Over there. Second aisle in the back.

- Thank you.
- Oh, my God, it's Barbie!

- I love Barbie!
- Hey, don't I know you?

- I don't think so.
- Sure I do. You're...

You're Bunny O'Hare.

You sure look different
with the clothes on.

Sometimes I hate bein' a celebrity.

We only have time to buy
a car seat, then get going.

Well, see, I was an only child,
just like Christy,

and I know how important it is
to have a doll to love.

I thought you said you had a sister.
Well, yeah, I did,

but she was a half sister,
so I was mostly on my own.

You still believe her, Sam?

I'm gonna go pick up the car seat.

Okay. You go right ahead.

We're just gonna keep lookin' till we
find the perfect doll. Ain't we, Christy?

I can't believe how primitive
these car seats were in '63.

Look at that. It's flimsy.
Al, I found out why we took Christy.

We're gonna return her to
her real mother in New Mexico.

- Her real mother's dead.
- No, no, no.

Bunny explained all that to me.
Reed lied.

His wife divorced him,
so he stole Christy. Sam...

No. Check it out.
Her name's Margaret.

- Margaret Dalton.
- Yeah. Clayton, New Mexico.

Clayton, New Mexico, 1963...

She's gotta be in there.

No. Christy's mother died giving birth.

Reed is the sole living parent.

No, I don't believe that.

Boy, she really bent
your mind like a spoon.

Sam, Bunny's done hard time.

- Bunny was in prison?
- No. Well, reform school.

But look, back in the orphanage,
we thought of that as hard time.

- Okay?
- Al, it's not the s...

She's finally asleep. Look, I found one
with hair the same color as Christy's.

Holy Sheba!

Go to the back of the store.

Sam, when are you gonna wake up?
You've got to turn yourself in.

Until you can tell me why I'm here,
I'm trusting my instincts.

My instincts tell me
to stick with Bunny.

If you were a real friend,
you'd help me get out of here.

There's a door at the back of the store
that leads to the alley.

Her wedding ensemble.

That baby come loose,
this car ain't going nowhere.

You can't come down this way, Sam.

- Give me some money.
- Oh.

Here you go.

- Shh-shh-shh-shh! Wait here.
- Okay.

Oh, it's all right, darlin'.
It's all right.

Hey, uh, nice car you got.

It's the third fastest car in town.

- Wanna sell it?
- Nah.

I'm sorry. It's pretty special.

- I'll, uh, give you $200 for it.
- Nah. I can't sell it.

My dad gave her to me for Christmas,
and he's kind of sick right now.

- 210.
- Sold.

- Nice car.
- Get in.

Come on. Peel out!
Peel out! Come on!

Go! Come on!

And the baby was with her?

Yeah. Funny thing too,
seein' a stripper totin' a baby.

- Was she sick or wheezing?
- Bunny looked pretty damn healthy to me.

- The baby!
- I wasn't exactly looking at the baby.

I can't believe it. You guys had 'em
right here and then you let 'em go!

Mr. Dalton, they won't get far
without a car.

We've got more units on the way,

and the highway patrol is on
every road from Abilene...

What's goin' on?

There's been a murder
in the toy store.

Can you describe
the man with her?

About 6'2".
Hadn't shaved for a couple days.

Kind of had a mustache...
and a gold tooth right here.

Would you look at this Barbie?

She is so glamorous.

But no real woman
could ever look like this.

I mean, first of all,
her chest is bigger than her head,

and her waist
is as tiny as her neck.

And look at her legs. They're twice
as long as the rest of her torso.

It's just not humanly possible.

But it is something to aspire to.

Wait! That's our song!

- Our song. Yeah.
- Yeah.


I'll never forget last week,
after the first time we made...


You were standing at the end of
the bed in your boxer shorts,

singing Maybe, Baby.

I tell you, Buster.
In all my 26 years,

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

Will you do it again for me
right now?

Make love?

No. Sing Maybe, Baby.

Maybe, Baby.

Yeah, right. Make love.
We got a tot here.

♪ Baby, I'll have you ♪

- ♪ Maybe, baby, I'll be true ♪
- ♪ I'll be true ♪

♪ Maybe, baby, I'll have you for me ♪


you wanna tell me about
reform school?

How did you find out about that?

Oh, you been readin' my diary.

The only reason I stole that ring...

was because my daddy was
beatin' the daylights out of me.

I just couldn't stand
living at home anymore,

and reform school
was my only way out.

She sounds like she's
having trouble breathing.

No, she's just poky from
all the dust and excitement.

You, uh...

You wanna bring her
up here for a second?

Put her up here.
Let me listen to her.

Uh, I don't know about poky...
Whatever that means...

But it sounds to me
like she's asthmatic.

I don't think so.

You said you'd been watchin'
her for the last six months.

Yeah, she wheezes
from time to time.

Bunny, we've gotta get her
to a doctor.

Well, we're gonna be in Clayton
in a few hours.

No, Christy shouldn't wait.

Buster, we can't go back to Abilene.

Well, people live out here.
There's gotta be a doctor.

It's okay.

Well, she's definitely
having trouble breathing.

I'd like to help you
with an oxygen mask,

but all I've got is a chicken
incubator in the back.

Yeah. Could I talk to
you for a minute, please?

Sure thing.


- Nice pig.
- Thank you. Nice baby.

- What's its name?
- Cindy.

- What's her name?
- Christy.

Nice name.

Come on, honey.
Let's go look at the bunny rabbits.

Are you sure
you don't want any coffee?

Uh, no. No, thanks.
Listen, Doctor...

Be careful. That's bull sperm.

Oh, yeah. Uh, Doctor, I...

I was hoping that we could get
some epinephrine for the baby's asthma.

I can't give prescription
drugs for humans.

Oh, that's okay.
I know what dosage to give her.

Oh, you're a doctor?

Well, it probably doesn't look like it,
but, yes, I am.

It doesn't matter.
I don't have any epinephrine.

I used my last vial
for Freddie here.

But there is a hospital in Abilene.
You could get some there.

My patients call. Good luck.

Are you sure the doctor
said to give the baby coffee?

Yeah. Uh-huh.

Well, hell, why don't we
just give her a cigarette

and a shot of whiskey
while we're at it.

No. The doctor... She said
that the caffeine in the coffee...

Thank you... was a, uh,

a bronchodilator...

There you go I'll give it back to you...
that would work temporarily.

But she made me promise
that we'd only use it once.

Because to use it more than that,
well, it just wouldn't be good for her.

Okay. Come on, honey.
Be a good girl. Drink your broncho...

Your broncho... your coffee.

Good girl. Yes!

The hot rod's license
is PR6025. Over.

- Come on. Let's go. Let's go.
- Hold your water.

- Tell that to him.
- Come on! We gotta go, Joe!

I'm comin'!

If they get into New Mexico,
I'll never see Christy again.

Don't worry. There's no way
they're gonna miss bein' spotted...

in a flame-painted hot rod.

Look, Buster. Ain't she pretty
when she's sleepin'?

I'd sure love to go in there
and get a cold beer right now.

I can't believe that doctor charged us
30 bucks just to look at Christy.

That's the most expensive cup of coffee
I ever bought.

- How many more miles to New Mexico?
- Well, let's see.

Okay, two fingernails
equals 40 miles.

So one fingernail is 20 miles.

Yeah. And we're one and a half
fingernails from the state line.

- Okay, so we've got 30 miles to go.
- Yeah.

Well, we're gonna have to get some gas.
I don't think we can make it without it.

Give me five bucks.
That should do it.


- We're busted.
- What do you mean, we're busted?

How can we be out of money?
We've only spent around $300.

- You said you had 400.
- Well, I guess I was wrong.

All we got left is a quarter,
two dimes and a Chiclet.

- Wanna split it?
- Bunny, you gotta stop lying to me.

I didn't lie to you. I just...
I overestimated.

Well, there's no way
we can make it now.

Yes, we can.

Pop up there!

Honey, over here!

Sam, why is everyone applauding?

- Did I miss something?
- Bunny just stripped for gas money.

So she stripped.
What do you mean...

She stripped!
She stripped, and I missed it?

Sam, I'm supposed to be
the observer on this project.

I should have been
here to observe it!

Well, I guess we know who won
this amateur contest.

Let's give the $50
to this little lady.

- I told you we could do it!
- Yeah.

I wouldn't celebrate too soon, Sam.

Put your hands on the bar
and don't move.

Christy. Thank God you're safe.

We were just taking the baby
back to her real mother in New Mexico.

Real mother?
My wife died a year ago in childbirth.

Oh, Reed, you're such a liar!

Everything that comes out
of your mouth is one big lie!

He doesn't have any
legal rights to Christy.

He stole her and
left New Mexico.

She found letters from his wife
while she was working for him.

Working for me?
She didn't work for me.

She babysat Christy every day!

You met Maria.
She takes care of Christy.

Now, I don't know
what Bunny told you,

but the only one she
ever took care of was me.

Buster, I'm sorry. I just didn't
want you to know that we dated.

After the first date,
I only went back because of Christy.

- Sam...
- Okay, buddy.

- It was all a lie.
- No, it wasn't!

She's right. That's why I'm here, Sam.
Ziggy reversed this field.

It turns out that she's been telling the
truth about the real mother all along.

- No.
- I swear to God, Buster.

Okay, go on back to your seats, folks.
There's nothing to see here.

- Go on.
- You can't get arrested, Sam,

because if you do, the two of you
are gonna spend 20 years in prison.

- What do you want me to do, resist arrest?
- If you will, I will.

Well, you gotta do something.
Grab his gun.

- Grab his gun?
- Okay.

- Hold it right there! Don't move!
- Geez!

- Look out!
- Whoa!


Car keys.

Come on. Hurry up.

- Where's your car?
- It's out back.

- Aw, geez!
- Get the baby.

Sam, duck!

- You're shooting at your baby!
- Get out of my way.

- Reed, put the gun...
- I said, get out of the way!

Hey, hold it!
Get out of that car!

- Come on! Let's go!
- What do you mean?

- Get out of there! Come on! Let's go!
- Leave me alone.

Gooshie, center me on Sam!

Quick, quick, quick, quick, quick!

The New Mexico state line!
Buster, we're gonna make it!

Well, maybe not.

Reed is on our tail in a Corvette.

- Reed's chasing us?
- Oh, he never gives up!

Reed was disbarred
from New Mexico,

and he's wanted there
for conning millions

out of investors in
a real estate scam.

- You sure?
- Yes, I dated him!

Reed is, uh... it's an uncommon name,
so I had Ziggy cross-check it...

against anyone named Margaret
in New Mexico...

who was married
in the last 10 years,

and we matched it
to a Margaret Cole in Clayton.

And Reed Dalton...
That's an alias.

His real name is Reed Cole.

Margaret divorced him,
and she got sole custody of Christy.

But he stole Christy,
and then he vanished,

and the mother's never
seen the baby since.

Well, she will now.

- Who will what now?
- Uh, Christy's gonna see her mama.

- Clayton.
- Clayton!

He's less than a mile back
and he's closing.

Where's Christy's mother live?

7232 Mesa Avenue.
4232 Mesa Avenue.

- Are you sure?
- Yes!

Sam, 7232 Mesa
is Clayton Water and Power.

You sure it's not
4232 Mesa Avenue?

You're right!
Oh! 7-2's my grandma's age,

but I forgot to subtract
my age to get 42.

You're 30?

I thought you told me
you were 26.

Well, okay, that was a fib.
I'm really 30.

But if anyone asks, I'm 26, okay?

About five more blocks,
Sam, on the right.

What about Reed?

He's somewhere within
a quarter of a mile.

You're right! He knows the address!
He'll find us!

Hello. Hello, police! Police!

- We're kidnappers from Texas. Arrest us!
- Bunny, what are you doin'?

- We'll be at 4232 Mesa Avenue.
- Bunny...

The police will come to Margaret's
house and arrest Reed.

Yeah, they'll arrest us too.
Oh, I hadn't thought of that.

Come in.

There it is... the house
with the porch on the right.

We're here.

- So is Reed.
- Yeah. It's okay.

It's over.

All right. Both of you,
hold it right there! Put your gun down!

Please stand by.

All right.
Now, what in hell is goin' on here?

What's this about a kidnapping?

Officer, I want you to arrest this man.
He stole my child.

Cole? Reed Cole.

Well, I never thought we'd see you
around here again.

Unit 12. Unit 12.

We have a caller
from Al's Coffee Shop.

Come on.

Everything's okay.

We gotta go downtown
for a while, but, uh,

they've got a dozen
outstanding warrants against Reed.

We gotta take care
of Christy first,

'cause she needs a warm bottle
and a good night's sleep.

What do you say we find a motel
and snuggle down for the night?

Bunny, Christy's home.

She can be home tomorrow.

I mean, just let us keep her
one more night.

I've really grown fond
of her too, but, uh,

she's not ours.

But I love her.

I know, but she's hers.

But she doesn't even know Christy.

She doesn't know how
she likes her oatmeal

with little bits of
cheddar cheese in it...

or how she...

How she kicks off her covers
when you don't tuck her in...

or how she'll crawl
across the floor to get to P.U.

You can tell her.

- Buster, I can't give her up.
- I just can't.

But you will,

because you love her.

Will she forget me?

Not in her heart.

This is... Christy.

Oh, you're so beautiful.

Dr. Bryant, do you think
Heathcliff's obsession...

stems from Brontë's own
tragic yearning for Branwell?
