Hey bud. You know I was gonna

pick you up at your place.

Yeah, my mom and dad are acting

kind of weird right now,

so I figured I'd meet you here.

Oh, okay...yeah. You okay?

Yeah, everything's fine.

You sure you still want to go?


Gonna be pretty nice tonight.

Maybe a little cooler.

Yeah...let's just go.


It's about ten miles up the road.

You think this is far enough?

Yeah. I think so.

No one really comes out here.

We've never been out here before,

have we?

How'd you know about this place?

I used to come out here

to get away from my dad.

You could've come to my house.

I couldn't get you in the middle

of all that. You remember how mean he was.

You remember when he broke my arm?

Yeah, I remember.

I was happy for the day he left.

Let's unpack, get a fire started.

Get some supper.

(boys laughing)

You remember that time the

scorpion bit me on the hand?

That scorpion bit you so bad.

It was good I was there to tell

you what to do!

You pissed on my hand!

That's what you're supposed to do!

It gets the venom out!

Yeah, sure. Whatever. (laughing)

Think everything's okay at home?

I figure it is. Told my mom I was

camping with buddies.

They don't ask too many questions

if I stick to the rules.

I got a summer job.

Yeah. It's not that big of a deal.

Working at the diner.

Helping in the kitchen.

Cleaning tables, you know.

At least I can help my mom, now.

That's good. About the job.

The extra money will help.


So I guess you'll be leaving

in a few weeks?

Be kinda hard not

having you around.

I really don't want to move, but

my dad has to take the job.

I was hoping he could've waited

until summer was over.

We've been best friends

for a long time, huh?

Six years.

Be kind of hard

getting around without you.

Not gonna be easy

finding a new best friend.

I really wish we didn't

have to move.

We'll keep in touch, right?

Yeah. Be really nice.

I wish I could call you sometime.

If it wasn't so expensive.

I mean, I guess I could

call you sometime.

You could come visit me.

I could take a couple days

off work. A weekend or something.

You could borrow your mom's car

and come see me!

I don't think she'd go for that.

I barely have my permit.

Maybe I could. Maybe next year.

I'll try.

Yeah. Yeah.

I'll try to see you, too.

Sure is dark out.

Yeah. Desert is the darkest place.

It's kind of scary.

All the animals out there.

It's the coyotes we've got to

keep an eye out for.

But the fire should keep them away.

You think anyone knows?

I uh...

I don't think so.

No one can ever find out.

I mean it.

If they do, my life will be over.

I would never tell anyone.

Yeah. I know.

You want...some more chili?

No thanks. I'm fine.

Well...I'm getting kind of tired.

Oh. Okay.

I guess...

I'm going to head to bed.

It's getting late.

(distant coyote sounds)

I want to...but I'm so afraid.

It's okay, Kyle.

People in a small town, they have

a way of finding things out.

You'll be moved away,

and I'll be left here alone.

People won't understand.

You know I...I care about you a lot.

I know.

I'm really gonna miss you.

My best moving away...


(Distant voice) You okay Jake?

What's that?

We were just talking

about the sci-fi thing.

The sci-fi thing...

The movie? We're in preproduction.

The alien movie?

Right. The movie.

(Shocked) Holy Sh*t!

This is one of your little aliens.

Should I come back after?

No. We've got to

get this done today.

This needs to be approved.

Tim said you wanted to see it today.

Right. The little aliens.

They start shooting in a week.

Much better than the last ones.

At least these ones are


Until you realize that they're

just puppets.

They have to make fifteen.

Wonder how much

that's going to cost me?

Tim keeps asking me if there's an

official title for the movie.

He's not sure what to tell people.

He can tell them it's untitled.

How about ''The Monsters

That Ate Bakersfield?''

Why did I agree to do this movie?

You like making movies. You feel

rewarded at the end of each day.

Maybe after this you can take a


Take some time off for yourself.

For your life.

Hmmm, life. Now where did I put that?

They don't tell you it's ten percent show,

and ninety percent business.

Brian, save yourself. Find

something you love, and do that!

I think it would be cool to be

the big producer man.

In charge of it all.

Me and a buddy are working on a

short film.

It's gonna be about twenty pages.

My brother has a traumatic brain


He was hit one night by a drunk

driver. Messed up his life.

Anyway, I was thinking of doing

a story on that. A scripted story.

Get some good actors to help out.

If you want to chase your

dreams, then do it.

But make sure it's what you want

to do. And stay true to yourself.

Don't take any crap from anyone.

(cell phone rings)


Definitely. He was supposed to

get that to you yesterday.

Call the film commission. We need

to have the insurance on papers on file.

I don't know! Just by tomorrow!

Call me back when you know for sure.

I guess I have to babysit everyone!

(stress attack, heavy breathing)

You okay, Jake?


I'm fine. Let's get this done.

(front door opens and closes)

(clears throat) Fire!

You just woke up, didn't you?

I guess I passed out.


Deal with it!

Ain't someone little miss sassy
