Lunch is ready!

- Grandma.

- Hmm?

Can I go up to school

after lunch to help Mr. Perry?

That's fine.

Just be home before supper.

Yield's gonna

be lower this year.

It's too early to tell.

It's getting lower

every year.

- Hey, Mr. gieger.

- Hi, sweetheart.

Margaret left

on her wheel right after lunch.

Wish you wouldn't

call it a wheel, grandma.

Bicycle's got two wheels.

You make it sound like

it's just got one.

I just thought

she'd be back by now.

Margaret couldn't have made it

all the way over to Babylon

if she just had one wheel

to do it with.

Belinda hale.

Hey, Ms. Larkin.

Hey, Jerry.

Hey, belinda.

How are you?

Guess what?

I just got elected co-captain

of the cheerleaders.


That's real fine!

- That's good, belinda.

- Thanks, Jerry.

Oh, hey, how are the berries

gonna be this year?

Just fine.

We'll send you and your daddy

over a few pints

just as soon as boy scouts

and girl scouts start picking.

Oh, you have no idea how much

I'd be looking forward to that.

- Ms. Nina!

- Hey, Margaret.

You should come

by the house some time.

Pick all the blueberries

you like

before all the boy scouts

come and take them all.

Well, thank you, I will.

Ooh, you better go on now

before it gets bad.

- I will.

- Tell your grandma i said hi, now.

- All right, see ya!

- Hurry up, Margaret, hurry!

I brought you some things

to do up for me.

I probably found them

in the back of my closet,

lying there since like two years

and 15 pounds ago.

- So what do you think?

- Short.

- But they're so cute, though.

- You got a mark where you want them?

- No, ma'am.

- Hold that.

You didn't happen to see her

when you passed, did you?

Oh, no, I didn't see anybody

on my way over.

Well, expect Mr. geiger fishing,

but he was already packing up.

Thank you, Ms. Larkin.

Well, I best get back

to Babylon

so I can fix Mr. red

his dinner.

Oh, how is his neck anyway?

Oh, well, let's just say

if you was to stick

a loaded shotgun

at the back of his neck,

he wouldn't even be able

to turn around enough

to know it was you

who was doing it.


Be good to your grandma,

now, Jerry!

And when I see Margaret,

I'll give her a ride!

Please do!

You're late, miss pie.

How many times

have I told you?

Please do not call me that.

I'm fat and I know it,

but I would appreciate

you not drawing attention

to it.

What in the world

are you doing out here?

Nina brought me out here

before she left.

I was sure you'd show up

before the rain.


Don't do that!

I want to hear the rain!

I would appreciate

some thanks.

I just saved you

from your watery grave.

- Hey, daddy.

- What do you want?!

Nathan wanted to know

if belinda was here,

- and I see she is.

- What does Nathan want with belinda?

I don't know, something

to do with supper, I guess.

Well, that Nathan

can take care of himself.

Oh, why don't I just go see

what Nathan wants?

- Now come take care of your daddy until I get back.

- Take him with you.

I don't have anything

to say to him.

And he don't have nothing

to say to me!




Grandma, I'm sorry.

I didn't mean to scare you.

I just went out to check

the berries,

- had a look at the bridge.

- What about it?

Well, there's...

There's five planks gone.

- But I'll fix it in the morning.

- What about Margaret?

How's she gonna

get home tonight?


I already made the call.

Well... w-where is she?

Is she coming back?

I talked to Mr. Perry

over at the high school.

He said she left at 5:00.

I guess it makes sense

to talk to the sheriff now.

Where... is Margaret?

Oh, hey, hey, hey!

Down, maisy.

I'm sorry, Ted.

She just gets so excited.

You know you got

to have her on a leash, right?

- It's a new rule.

- Oh, I know, yeah.

Morning, sheriff.



Evelyn and Jerry Larkin

are here to see you.

If there had been

some kind of an accident,

it would've been reported.

She can't have gotten

very far on a bike.

Well, then where is she?

Jerry, I want you to take

Ms. Larkin home.

Ms. Larkin,

i want you to stay there.

No, I'm not gonna do that.

I'm gonna go find Margaret.

- Guess wha...

- Not now, honey.


We will find her.

Hey, we need to go the bank

while we're here.

How can you think like this

when Margaret's still missing?

I'm thinking

about things like this

because I know Margaret

will be back.

I want to do this now

while we're together.

I don't want you home alone.

How are you, Ms. Larkin?

How are you?


Well, I was hoping that you

would come in today

'cause I've been meaning

to talk to you about your loan.

Today's not a real good day

to talk about that.

I'm sorry, Ms. Larkin, I hate

to be the one to bring it up.

Now, you know that you've been

behind on your payments

- for eight months, right?

- Is there something wrong here, grandma?

Jerry, I take it you

were making a payment

on your overdue loan there.

We gotta wait until

the first berries sell.

I've been making little

installments on it, though, so.

Well, um...

Your little installments

haven't been amounting to much,

see, that's the problem.

Your daddy never used

to talk to us like this.

Your daddy never used to talk to

any of your customers like this.

- Ms. Larkin, my daddy's laid up...

- grandma, let's go, come on.

She was here yesterday

with Warren Perry.
