Exhuming 'The Messengers'

38 min

It's okay. Mommy's here, okay?

I need you to be a big boy, okay?

Get under the bed. Get under the bed.

Right now. Quick. Quick.

Please, leave us alone!

Where's Mom? Where's...

Go, Michael, go!



Michael, run!

You're going to run down the battery.

Like you could get

a signal around here anyway.

Luckily, people out here remember you can

have conversations without those things.

It's okay, buddy.

Be careful not to unbuckle his seatbelt.

I'm not.

We're here. How about that?

No going back now.

We couldn't afford it even if we wanted to.

I know it's a bit run-down,

but wait till you see the inside.

- Hey, buddy.

- Hey, Denise, check out the water pump.

You want to come see your new back yard?

Yeah? It's big.

- Still works.

- Yeah, I'm impressed.

I know you're worried.

But a couple of days and I'll have everything

here running like new. I promise.

Even that?

All right. Maybe a week.

Still think we can do this?

Climate's right. The soil reports are great.

Listen, I know I couldn't make this work

in the city.

But this is something I know.


Jess, come help with these bags.

What do you think of the house?


Help us unload.

If we want anything to sleep on tonight,

we got to get moving.



I think she's going to be okay.

Well, at least she's talking to us.

I guess that's a start.


I love it out here, you know.

- Hey.

- Hey.

How's it going?

It's so quiet out here.

Yeah. It takes some getting used to, huh?

You know, bringing you out here

wasn't a punishment, Jessica.

It's an adjustment for everybody.

And the only way

we're going to make this work

is if we give it a chance.

"I'll take that as a good point, Dad.

"You're right. You're always right. "

Good night.

Get some sleep.

Don't give up, honey!

Don't worry. I'll get it.

Come on.

Come on.

Come on.

Come on. That's right. Come on.

He did it! High-five. High-five.

He did it!

Roy Solomon?

Colby Price. Belton Savings.

Oh, hey. Good to meet you.

So you said

your father grew sunflowers, too.

Yeah, over in Turek County.

I grew up not too far from here.


Look, I know you're all moved in,

but an opportunity came up at the bank

that I thought you might be interested in.

This place sat gathering dust for years

until you came along and bought it,

and now, as it happens,

another party's expressed interest

in the farm.

The good news is,

they're willing to pay what you paid

and put another 15% on top of that.

We just got here.

And frankly,

my family's looking for a little stability

right now.

Well, this will give you the details.

Give me a call if you want to discuss it.

Thanks, I will.

Hey, Benny.

I'm coming.

You ready?

Oh, great.



Hey, sport.

I thought you were asleep.

How'd you get out of bed, sport?

I thought you were...

Come on. Let's get you to bed.


All right, Ben.

Now you try to get some sleep now, okay?

Lay down. Go to sleep. Good boy.

Daddy loves you.


What are you doing?

- Going to town.

- I don't think so, Jess.

Give me the keys.

I just had them, like, two seconds ago.

Thanks, Jess. You ready to go?


What's up with that?

It was me, not her.

I thought she was taking the car.

Don't beat yourself up over it.

By the way, your son managed to climb

out of his crib last night.

That's new.


So are the things I'm gonna do to you

when I come in from the fields tonight.

- New things, huh?

- Oh, yeah.

I've been reading the farmer-sutra.

See you.

- There you go. You have a good day now.

- Thanks, Ed.

Well, you're the new folks in town, right?
