Mrs. Margaret.

- Oh, look at that pretty broach.

- Aren't you so kind?

You have yourself a lovely day,

Mr. Georgie Wits.

Remember when we promised we'd wait

till you graduated to get out of here?

Yeah.

You been out...

three years now.

But the situation changed.

Got your daddy to take care of.

Well...

I wish I could put him

in one of them homes.

That ain't true.

I wish I could put him into one of them homes

and just make my peace with him.

There's what... 3,000 people live here?

I know 'em all. By face, at least.

They smile at me, caring for my dad.

They'll turn on me in a heartbeat,

they find out I wanna bail.

Everybody's in everybody's business.

Hey. Come on.

- You can be sad, Dwayne.

- I ain't sad.

I'm bothered.

Hey! Shit-heads.

Can't you see there's a whole big field

there to throw your ball around on?

Yeah, but ain't you pervin' right now?

Piss off, both of ya!

For me?

Thank you, ma'am.

- Come on. Give it another go. Video's on.

- I'm not ready, Dwayne. I need a rehearsal.

There's no time for a rehearsal.

Sun's fallin'.

I feel stupid, Dwayne.

Well, you look like a starlet.

- Really?

- Yeah. Just like Natalie Wood.

Think on it like it's just me and you

practicing in your room, okay?

I'll video the rehearsal.

Okay.

Hi! Welcome to Cut Bank, Montana,

where the Rockies meet the Plains.

My name's Cassandra Steeley,

and I'd like to show you my town

full of cheer and wonted kindness.

Here we're surrounded by miles

and miles of wheat and canola fields

and soaring mountains.

There's a Blackfoot Indian reservation

close by that gives us

rich cultural diversity.

- Cut Bank's a treasure from a bygone ti...

- Get down!

Dwayne!

Stay down.

Oh, shit.

...soaring mountains.

There's a Blackfoot Indian reservation

close by that gives us

rich cultural diversity.

Cut Bank's a treasure

from a bygone ti...

That ain't it. He shoots him again.

Imaginin' suits me.

Already more disappointin'

- than I'd like to think on.

- Dinner's ready!

- We should call Sheriff Vogel.

- Like this instant.

- We can drive down to see him.

- Dinner's ready.

All right. We're comin'.

Daddy, we just seen a manslaughter.

Go sit yourselves down to eat,

and I'll phone the sheriff.

- Thanks, Big Stan.

- Call me "sir."

And no mention of this

over the table, okay?

You and me and the sheriff

will talk it over when he comes.

- Big Stan.

- Roland.

Ought I insist once and again you call me

Sheriff Vogel? Or you old of the ear?

I see you're still fingerin'

that fairy furry thing.

'Bout time to let childhood

romances go, don't you think?

It's just my key chain, Stan. You sure

you still ain't hangin' on to somethin'?

- Hiya, Sheriff Vogel.

- Evenin', Barb.

- Can I get you men some pie?

- Won't be necessary.

I'd appreciate some.

- Dwayne?

- Thank you, ma'am.

Mr. Dwayne McClaren. How are you, son?

- Okay, sir.

- How's your daddy?

Same pretty much, but he's okay.

Ever tell you 'bout the time

that he saved me

from gettin' whooped by Fred

and George Little back in school?

Made me look like a champ

in front of Celine Towers.

Celine was very pretty.

Gave me the grit

to ask her out after that.

He's a good man.

Pass along my best to him, will you?

Yes, sir.

So, we got ourselves

a video of a murder?

Yes, sir.

All right then.

Hi! Welcome to Cut Bank, Montana,

where the Rockies meet the Plains.

My name's Cassandra Steeley,

and I'd like to show you my town

full of cheer and wonted kindness.

Here we're surrounded my miles

and miles of wheat and canola fields
