Cool my brains

and soothe my head

Stimulate me, my Co-co-co

Sneak into my empty bed

And educate me, my Co-co-co

In the summer, in the spring

In public places, my Co-co-co

On an island far away

Lemonade with my Co-co-co

And when I was down

And failing life

You came to save me,

my Co-co-co

And when they said

I'm telling lies

You believed me, my Co-co-co

And through the noise

I heard a song

You were singing, my Co-co-co...

Register... now! Everything!

Do it!

I'll open it.

Come on, come on!

- What about the safe?

- We don't have time for the safe.

- Do it now!

- There you are, here.

Come on, come on,

come on... money.

Get the car.

- I said open it.

- I'll open it,

but I don't think

you'll like what's inside.

What the hell

are you talking about?

Interesting life

you've chosen for yourself.

- Just shut the f*** up!

- All the things you could have

done in life... you don't even care

that you're going nowhere.

I'm gonna give you

to the count of three.



You always help yourself

to other people's food?

Let me help you.

I have a first aid kit inside.

I'm sorry I helped myself

to your food.

It's just I haven't eaten anything

since breakfast yesterday.

What are you doing out here?

Our car ran out of gas last night

and my husband went

to go look for a service station,

- but he never came back.

- What time last night?

I don't know. Late.

Would it be possible

to use your phone?

Yeah, sure.

If you can find one.


You know how to work

a busted radio?

You don't know how to fix it?

This isn't my cabin.

Then what are you doing here?

Same as you... car trouble.

I've been stranded here

for three days.

Three days?

And you haven't left?

Where am I gonna go?

There's no phone.

My car's toast. I haven't been able

to walk out for help.

Listen, um,

I appreciate your predicament,

but l-l-l... I need

to find my husband.

Look, that read -5 last night.

What are you saying?


- I'm sure he found some help.

- Oh my God.

Look, I'm sure he's fine.

You have matches?

Can I?

I thought I was gonna

freeze to death.

How did you survive?

It was below freezing.

We have blankets in our car.

I practically made

an igloo out of them.

Blankets, huh?

I think you just became

my new best friend.



How about showing me

where that car is, Sam?

Well, you weren't kidding

when you said your car ran out of gas.



so what happened to you?

I put my car in a ditch

about a half a mile up.

When you said you had car trouble,

you weren't joking.

I, uh,

- practically broke my leg.

- Oh my goodness.

It doesn't hurt now.

I'm gonna stay here

for a little while,

wait for my husband

to get back.

I'll stay with you.

That's a good idea.

Just in case, you know?

Lt'll be gettin' dark soon.

We really should get back before

the temperature drops.

What if Adam comes back

and I'm not here?

We'll leave him a note. Do you have

any pen and paper in the car?

Maybe in the glove box.

How do you know

no one lives there?

Well, if someone does,

they haven't been there in a while.

Pretty cool car.

You think so?

Yeah, it's a classic.

It's kinda slow, beat up.

I don't know.

Here... here, I'll take that.

Thank you.

Is there a bathroom anywhere?

You see all this?

There's your bathroom.


There you go.

- Thank you.

- No, thank you.

Those blankets are a lifesaver.

So where's the water

from anyway?

Oh, I found a creek out back.

Well, at least we won't go thirsty.

About that...

I tried to find the creek again,

but I couldn't find it.

So we have one tank of gas.

Right. You know,

I've got some paint buckets

and some rubber hosing

in the back of my truck.

I bet I could siphon gas

from my car to yours.

- Would that work?

- Yeah, I think it would.

Get us out of here.

Get us to your husband.

I should've never let him go.

When Adam gets

an idea in his head,

there's no stopping him.

Well, why didn't you

just go with him?

He, uh,

didn't want me to leave the car

- in my condition.

- What's your condition?

I'm pregnant.

You're smoking.

I know.

It's my last pack.

We were on our way to

see his parents before he ships off...

tell them the news.

He ships out in two weeks.

Anyway, I smoke when I'm nervous,


Tonight you can have the bed.

I'll sleep on the floor.

I'm gonna get us out of here.


Oh my gosh.

Oh my goodness.

Are you okay?

Where am I?

You... you were out

in the cold and...

Who are you?

My name is Samantha.

Who are you?

- I was just trying to help you.

- Where's Kevin?

I don't know who that is.

- Where is he?

- You were asleep on the porch.

I found you out there.

I brought you inside.

That is all I know.

Where are you going?

Away from here.

Well, if you find anyone

will you please tell them

about this cabin?

And if you don't,

you're welcome to come back here.



Is anybody out there?

- Tom?

- No, not Tom... Jody.

Did you see anyone at the road?

Excuse me!

Where is your phone?

We don't have a phone.

What? What the hell

kinda place is this?

You don't have to be so rude.

I thought you said

I was welcome back.

Well, you are but...

Um, listen...

what's your name again?


Right, um, Sam,

I don't know if you're a hermit

or a serial killer

or whatever your deal is,

but I need to get

a phone, okay?
