Catch .44

Synopsis: For Tes (Akerman) and her two cohorts Kara (Nikki Reed) and Dawn (Deborah Ann Woll), the job sounded simple enough: intercept a double-cross drug shipment for their crime boss Mel (Willis) at an isolated diner. But when an unstoppable chain of events unfolds, everyone soon realizes no one is who they seem and the job may be something other than eliminating the competition. What started as simple instructions has now turned into a deadly cat-and-mouse game - with large guns pointed at everyone.
Genre: Action, Crime, Drama

It's sad, isn't it?

I've been working

with you seven years.

Seven years.

I always liked you.

Always looked after you.

I never trusted you.



# If you lay her there #

# At the bar across the room #

# She looks like an angel #

# With her paint

and perfume... #

... and that is the secret.

That's the secret?

- Yep.

- Yeah, she's right, Tes.

Everybody knows that already.

Yeah, why don't you tell us another one?


Secret number two: fake it.

That's definitely not a secret.

It kinda is.

All right, so how does

that relate to what we're doing now?

I'll tell you.

See, most women apply

secret number two to one thing...

sex. The rest of the time

we're too real.

Too real because it's

in our nature to be real,

which ultimately

is a woman's downfall.

But faking it keeps you

living in man's land.

Whoa! Who the f***

wants to live in man's land?

We're already living in it, guys.

All right, wait wait, let me

ask you a question then.

Would you be faking it

if you compromise?

'Cause you can't fake


You half can.

What the f***

does that mean?

Compromise is half faking.

'Cause if you weren't compromising half

you would have it all, in which case

you wouldn't be faking.

You would be taking.

For example,

guys compromise when they

leave the toilet seat down.

They do it because

they know they can't win.

And I'm not faking it

'cause I don't pretend not to mind

when they do leave

the toilet seat up... because I do.

Slow it down. How is that

a compromise on your end?

Yeah, and I thought that

you said we should fake it?

It's a compromise because I'd fake

other things to get my way.

Or I'd take away the p*ssy.

What are you even talking about?

I think

you're confusing yourself.

No no, I think it's just

too complicated for you to understand.

No, it's not at all.

I get what you're saying.

I just don't agree with you.

To me compromising

is not faking.

Fine. Then we'll just agree

to disagree.

Or we could agree that I'm right

because that's a compromise.

Tell you what:

I'll fake it

and we can agree on that.


But you're compromising

to agree on faking it.

I can explain it to you

if it's too complicated.

I think she got you

on that one, Tes, sorry.




- What?

- Quit staring at that guy.

- I'm not staring.

- Yeah, you are staring.

Do you know what the word

"conspicuous" means?

Or do you want me to explain

that to you as well?

- Kara, stop staring.

- I'm not conspicuous.

We're the only girls in here

with all our teeth.

We're very f***ing conspicuous.

Okay, but what if that's our guy?

I mean, didn't Mel...

Do you see

an orange rig outside?

What do you guys think

about Harry and Sally?

What about them?

You don't worry about them, Kara.

They're harmless.

So what if we missed him?

We spent, what? 20 minutes

with Deputy Elmore.

What if he came and left?


So, Tes, what are we doing?

Do you have a plan?

Mel did say 2:

All right.

So I'm guessing she runs the place.

And there's no way

this sh*t goes down here

without her getting a piece of the pie.

If anyone knows anything,

it's her.


Okay, great, I'll take her.

- Let's find out what she knows.

- Mm-hmm.

- I'll take the door.

- Guess I got the trucker.

I'm not even gonna say it

'cause you all know what this is.

- You be cool, Billy Bob.

- Who drives the truck and where is it?

I said which one of you shitkickers

knows where the f***ing truck is?

# I... #

# Don't wanna know your name #

# 'Cause you don't look the same #

# The way you did before #
