Domestic Disturbance

Synopsis: Susan Morrison is getting married to wealthy industrialist Rick Barnes. Danny, her teenage son with ex-husband Frank, isn't happy about this; he stows away in Rick's car one night, planning to go to Frank's house. But while there, he witnesses Rick murdering mysterious stranger Ray Coleman. Problem is, Rick's managed to dispose of most of the evidence, and he's considered a pillar of the community, while Danny has a history of lying. Frank believes him, though, and does some investigating of his own, as Rick's shady past slowly catches up to him and his new family.

All right ! Let her go !

It floats

Not bad, uh ?

It's fantastic

Can I get on ?

You paid for her

I'm the one who has to

ask permission to board

Go ahead

Here you go

Frank

No

I'll take one of these

To Frank Morrison

for building us the most

beautiful boat

in the water

Thank you ! Thank you !

That boat was the

bargain of the century

I made a price,

kept the price

And if you build

any more at that price

you'll go out of business

Theresa,

I should explain to

you my theory of

noble failure

But Danny's got

a game

See you

So how come

your boyfriend's

not coming

with you?

Danny said he wouldn't play

if he saw Rick in the stands

He's really got it in

for the guy, doesn't he?

Coach ! Coach !

How are you?

Hey, Frank,

how's it going ?

Where's Dan ?

He isn't here

Why not?

I asked him to stay,

but he chose to leave

I don't know where

he went yeah

This is

Frank Morrison

Oh, really?

What is that Danny?

Okay, we'll be there

He's at the police

station

Mom ! Dad !

I can't believe you

would stow away in some

complete stranger's car

Where did you think

you were going ?

No... Anywhere, What

difference does it make?

Christ, Danny,

what are you thinking ?

What's the big deal ?

I'm sorry, okay?

I just didn't feel like

playing today, so I booked

Mr. and Mrs. Morrison

Please come in

Wait here

The first time

we picked him up,

it was for breaking windows

Danny insisted that we

had the wrong kid

He wanted to hire a

lawyer, we remember

That was two years ago

after you guys separated

Six months later we got

him in here for truancy

That was right after - Right

after we got our divorce, yes

All this acting out is

Danny's way of

trying to get us

back together

Look we've

logged a lot of

hours a

lot of counsellors

Clearly, it hasn't

done us any good

Any idea what set him

off this time?

Yes, I'm sure it's because

I'm getting remarried

Oh, boy

who's the lucky guy?

Rick Barnes

I know Rick

Of course, you do

Everybody does

Congratulations then

Well, they do, honey

Your mom's

getting married

I know you don't

like it I get it

But you're not going to

use it as an

excuse to get wild

Okay, Dad

No, I'm not kidding,

Danny

Your mother's got a right

to move on with her life

I think you ought to give

this guy a break

What do you think?

Dad, do you ever wish that

things could be like they were?

Well, Danny, maybe you

don't remember,

But things weren't all

that great

I remember you were

home every day

Yeah, I know

The truth is, your mother

and I tried hard to make

it work out but we were

arguing all the time

and frankly

I didn't think I was doing

you any favours by

sticking around

Guess what?

The mast is up on the

big boat

So we're still going

sailing Saturday?

Yeah, you bet

Great

See you Saturday

Saturday

Frank, will you hold on

for a second ?

I'm sorry, Mom

It's okay, sweetheart

I love you

I love you, too

Bye, Dad

All right, so he said that

he would give Rick a break

At least it's something

Yeah, cool, thank you

Your're still taking him

sailing on Saturday?

Yeah, why?

It's just that Danny

takes his cues from you

And I thought that maybe

if you asked Rick to go

sailing with you guys

Jesus Susan I mean,

giving him a pep talk is

one thing

But taking your fiance

sailing with us?

Come on ! Jeez !

I'm sorry

I shouldn't have asked

Damn it

You okay?

Yeah, I'm okay

Susan asked me to take

Rick sailing with us this weekend

So Danny and he can bond

Maybe it's a good idea

What ?

Danny needs to

accept the fact

that his mom is
