I was a good kid.

A strong kid.

I always had a deep desire

to win.

Everything for me

was competition.

Hockey was my sport.

And that sport became my drug.

I got hit a lot in hockey.

I got hit hard.

I got driven into the boards.

I dislocated a shoulder.

I tore up a knee.

I couldn't walk for a summer.

I fell on my face.

I ate through a straw.

I got hit, I fell,

I got back up.

That's how I won.

Until I got hit by something

I couldn't beat.

I became addicted

to another drug.

It created a false sense

of victory.

I was in darkness.

I lost my way.

24-hours a day.

I bet the only thing

cranked up in your house...

Maybe the only way

to stop was to die.

We're gonna give you

some more of that coming up.

Let me give you guys

the weather today on this...

Can we call it lovely

February 6, 2004?

Looks like a big storm,

a big storm

coming in later this afternoon.

This is the craziest winter

I've seen in years.


Romans seven says,

"for I have the desire

to do what is good,"

but I cannot carry it out,

for I do not do the good

I want to do

but the evil

I don't want to do.

"This I keep on doing."

Do you know how many

millions of kids dream

of being a pro athlete,

of having that chance?

And... and you're throwing it

away by snorting meth?


I'm done.

I'm not going

to help you anymore

until you want to help yourself.

Well, I hired you a lawyer.

He said you absolutely

have to show up in court

in seven days.

You're going

to have to commit

to a 12-step recovery program.

Oh, my god.

My god.


Come on. Oh, god.

That's your equity, idiot.


Wait! Wait!




- Hey.

- Ooh. But...

Seriously, there's four reasons

you should not be eating that,

the first one being

that's where Jackson pees.


It also lowers

your body temperature

and makes you prone

to hypothermia.

But the thing that most people

don't know

is it actually dehydrates you.

So, all in all,

not a good idea.

Good to know.

Um, I'm Sarah, by the way.

- Eric.

- Headed up the mountain?

- Yeah.

- Hop in, I'll give you a ride.

This close enough for you?

Whoa! Jackson, leave him alone.

We gotta go.

- Be safe out there, ok?

- Thanks.

Don't tell your beautiful

mother our secret, okay, buddy?

Enjoy the mountain air.

Always do.

Patrol 2 to base.

We gotta do something soon.

Hey, Corey wants to see you.

He said it's important.

- I know. I've already told him.

- No, he knows.

He's not leaving early. I think

this is actually important.

You've reached

Susan lemarque.

Please leave a message.

Hey, mom.

I'm out boarding. Uh...

I just had to get away

for a few days.


Look, I never wanted

to bring you into this, so...

It's hard.

I'll talk to you later, okay?

So, the nucleus is going

to hit here,

it's a large impact zone,

it's definitely worse

than we thought.

It's predicting

two or three feet tonight.

Patrol 2, this is rm.

What's your location? Over.

This is patrol 2.

I'm at the top of the trail.

How's your visibility up there?

Well, the viz

is really bad.

When you get up the top,

there are pockets below

of total whiteout.

We might wanna consider

shutting down

the mountain early.





Okay, baby.

It's you and me.

Yeah, okay.

Come on.

Oh, sh*t.



Ah, damn it!

How many ladders

does lemarque owe me

for being ten minutes late?

But this isn't my fault!

Get up.

I can't.

I'm sorry, what?

I can't. I can't get up.

Five more.

Hey, Eric.


Son, whoa, whoa, whoa.

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

You're a part of this team.

Understand that?

Now, will it always be fair? No.

Will it always be easy? No.

Now, you walk off that ice

right now,

you're letting your team down,

you're letting me down.

And I can't let you do that.

'Cause you're a lemarque.

And lemarques don't quit.

Come on.






All he cares about

is... is pleasing you.

He just wants to be

good enough for you!

I get it, I get it.

You want me to let him

off the hook,

just let him do

whatever he wants.

You know, maybe our son

would be so much happier

if he had the time to play

and see friends

and watch a little TV,

god forbid,

instead of worrying

about pro hockey and the draft,

whatever new skill

you've tasked him with

that he'll never be

perfect enough for you.

You're stressing the boy out.

He's gonna have a breakdown

or something.

I got it, I got it. I

wanna tell you something, okay?

That boy...

That boy, he is never

gonna be a failure.

I am not gonna let him

be a failure.

It is never gonna happen, okay?

He's not gonna wake up

at 25 years old,

he's not gonna put

on a little tie,

and he's gonna iron his shirt,

David, iron his shirt,

and he's gonna kiss his wife...

Oh! Who he never

should have married!

Never should have married!

Never gonna happen!

He's not gonna go

to that 9-to-5,

not if I have anything

to do with it.

Okay, find where we started.

Find where we started,

you idiot.



All right.

You made me sleep...

Right about here.

Tried to throw me off a cliff

right over here.

And your...

Fanged friends paid me

a visit right here.

So that means...

The resort...

Should be right here.





What are you doing?

Move the puck!

Don't be so selfish.

Now move the puck!

Move your feet, get going.

Move it, move it.

Give it to 'em!

Move the puck! Use 'em!

Move it! Give it to 'em!

Give it to 'em!

Damn it.

Move the puck!

Move it! Move it!

You all right?

You kidding me?

What the hell was that?


Lemarque, what the hell

are you doing?

You gotta be a team player.

Move the puck.

I scored a goal, didn't I?

It's not I, it's we.

It's the crest on the front,

not the name on the back!

You're gonna

have to figure that out!


Hey, mom.

I'm out boarding. Uh...

I just had to get away

for a few days. Uh...

Look, I never wanted

to bring you into this, so...

It's hard.

I'll talk to you later, okay?

I'm getting off this mountain.

I'm getting off this mountain.

I'm getting

off this mountain.


You can't hold me!

You can't stop me!


Yes, yes, yes, yes!




Oh, my god!

Oh, my god, it's cold!

Oh, my...


Oh, my god.


You idiot.

Ow-oo! Whoa!



Oh, god!

Pounding, I mean pounding

against glass.


Red light spinning, whoo!

- You want one of these?

- No, I'm good.

Oh, yeah.

I miss it so much.

I miss it so much.

I know you miss it, too.

You gotta miss it.

I don't miss sh*t about Boston.

It's your shot.

A new rule in my house.

And that rule is,

I don't play pool with liars.

Come on, man, it's your shot,

just take the shot.

I get it, okay, I understand.

It's gotta be really hard

for you to come and see me

and see my awesome life

with this great house

and this amazing view,

but the only reason why I'm here

is because you decided

not to be.

I'm sorry, dude.
