(GIRLS LAUGHING)

PAIGE:
For me?

ASHLEY:
Okay.

So, which one do you want?

These ones.

Come here. Which one? This one?

No, these ones.

This one?

- Yes.

- (LAUGHS)

Other foot, other foot.

Give me that one.

Heels. I think you're too young

to wear heels.

- I know.

- Let me see.

Beautiful.

- Oh.

- It's okay.

Whatever you do, don't smile.

Whatever you do, don't laugh.

(BREATHES SHARPLY)

MELISSA:
You stay young

and high for so long

that one day you look back

and you realize you're all alone.

Help gone,

and what's left?

Nothing.

BEATRICE:
Thank you

for sharing, Melissa.

Anyone else?

Hi, I'm Ashley.

ALL:
Hi, Ashley.

I lost everything too.

Because of meth.

They said I was an unfit mother.

Took away my little girl.

Every time I do it I think,

"This is the last time.

I can control this."

And I do it again and again and again.

I just can't...

I just can't stop.

I like it too much.

BEATRICE:
Living one day at a time.

Enjoying one moment at a time.

Trusting that You'll make all things right

if I surrender to Your will.

Amen.

ALL:
Amen.

Ashley.

I haven't seen you in a while. You okay?

You clean?

How long?

A month.

Like, two days.

If I can't do this,

then I don't get my daughter back

and if I...

I know.

It's not easy.

Have you heard of this book?

The Purpose Driven Life?

Oh, yeah. I have.

It can help.

It helped me.

Ashley, you can't do this alone.

If you need me, call.

Thanks.

(DOOR SLAMS SHUT)

(INDISTINCT RADIO CHATTER)

Come on.

(DOOR BUZZER BLARES)

Face the wall, Mr. Nichols.

Eyes front.

Step inside, please.

Don't wanna keep Judge Barnes waiting.

That suit there

is compliments of your attorney.

Officer Hall down, cell block.

(ON RADIO) Please send a medic.

Prisoner escaped. 10-23 in progress!

(ALARM BLARES)

Mr. Nichols, what are you doing?

(ALL SCREAMING)

SGT. TEASLEY:
Stop!

Suspect northwest service corridor.

In pursuit.

Stop!

Stop! Out of the way!

(MAN GROANS)

(SIREN WAILING IN DISTANCE)

(INDISTINCT RADIO CHATTER)

(ENGINE STOPS)

Ugh! I hate this car.

(HONKS)

Okay.

- (HORNS BLARING)

- Gosh!

Love you too!

MAN:
Come on! Go.

Have a nice day.

NEWSCASTER:
Right now

the search is on for a suspect

after a judge, a court reporter

and a deputy are shot dead

at an Atlanta courthouse.

We're following developments

in this breaking story.

Right now, police looking for this man.

From the CNN Center in Atlanta,

I'm Miles O'Brien.

And I'm Kyra Phillips.

This hour of CNN's Live Room

starts right now.

O'BRIEN:
Let's just bring you

up to date on what's going on.

An intensive manhunt

all throughout the city of Atlanta

as they look for this suspect

involved in this multiple shooting

at the Fulton County

Superior Courthouse.

Brian Nichols is the suspect

and he is apparently at loose

in the city at large.

You're late, Ashley. Third time this week.

If it happens again, I'm gonna

have to put you on weekends only.

Aw, Randy, you wouldn't do that to me.

It'd break my heart.

Hold on.

Lady dropped this off for you.

(INDISTINCT CHATTER)

Lieutenant Chestnut.

Meredith MacKenzie, TV 7 News.

Could you tell us how the shooter

was able to breach courthouse security

and kill three people?

I'm going on a national in two minutes.

Well, good luck with that.

Two deputies called in sick.

Deputy Cynthia Hall

was alone with Brian Nichols

when he attacked her in the holding cell.

JOHN:
I know Cynthia.

How bad was she hurt?

She's in a coma.

He took her gun,

came in here.

One, two.

Where was the bailiff?

On a clerical errand for the judge.

Any priors?
