Winston, just stop it!

Bad boy!

Sit down! Now, sit!

Mrs. Patterson.

Bernadette O'Hara,

do you have any idea what time it is?

Where are you going?

I was just going up to the village

to meet some of the kids at the inn.

You mean the second home

for the Crawford Top Ten, don't you?

Isn't that what the elite of the

senior class like to call themselves?

Well, I guess so.

I beg your pardon?

Yes, Mrs. Patterson.

Do you know, Bernadette,

if you and the other

so-called members of the Top Ten

would spend half the time on your

books that you do down at that inn,

you could all be

in Harvard tomorrow.

Yes, Mrs. Patterson.

Just be sure you're back

before midnight.

Come along, Winston.

Take mommy home. Come on.

Come along, Winston.

Give mommy head.

Help me! Help me!

Help me! Help!

Help me.

Leave me alone!

Help me.

It's you.

Thank God.

Thank God.

Please help me.

Please, somebody's trying...

God, please, no more!

No class, these Americans.

Gee, thanks a lot.

Amelia, I'm getting mad.

These guys are really pissing me off.

Greg, just settle down, okay?

Etienne, you know Bernadette's

going to be here any minute.


I finally made it.

- Hi, Virginia.

- Hi.

What is this, a convention?

- Where's Bernadette?

- I don't know.

I can't fend him off much longer.

From out of the fog it comes!

What's this?

Who's that?

Come on, guys.

Grow up, okay?

Alfred, come sit by me.

How's the midnight taxidermist


Hey, Alfred, get stuffed.

Hey, Alfred, did you bring George?

Sure, I brought George.

Here, come on, George.

Come on, come on.

Say hi to George, everybody.

Hi, George.

Let's start the whole thing

all over again.

- That's it. I've had it!

- Greg!

- Five bucks says he creams him.

- You're on.

- You're really asking for it, man!

- Sit down.

What's with you, kid?

Thank you.

Can I buy you a drink?

Alfred, you know the rule.

We all buy our own.

Let's get George a drink.

Yeah, I know the rule.

But I'd like to buy you a drink.

Let me hold him.


You jumped?

Hi, cutie.

Mr. Grand Pooh-Bah, sir!

My apologies for the gross

misbehaviour of my colleague.

Ingrid, a steiner

for the Grand Impotate.

That's damn big of you, kid.

Thanks a bunch.

Where's George?

What happened to George?

- I'm sorry, I dropped him.

- What?

I dropped George.

Oh, no! George! George!

George! George! George!

A special for His Eminence.

As a token of our friendship

and esteem, Your Wizardship.

That's damn big of you.

Your next round's on me.

Jesus Christ, it's a rat!

Time to go, kiddies.

Get them! Get them! Get them!


Get them!

Get them!

You'll pay for this, you creeps!

You'll pay!

Go! Go! Go!

Everybody, just calm down.

The game!

Come on, everybody,

let's play the game!

You're on.

- Greg!

- Get in.

- I thought I was with you.

- Just get in!

I'm going to call

your headmistress about this!

Don't forget your numbers.

I go first.

- I'm second!

- Third!


And you're last, Greg!

And 20 bucks

says you got no balls.

Just watch me, a**hole.


Remember, you scumbag,

that's 20 bucks! Cash!

F*** it!

No! No, Greg, no!

Stop the car!

It's too high!


He made it.

Let go of me, Virginia!

- We made it!

- I don't want to die!

No! Stop!

- Stop it! You'll kill yourself!

- For Christ's sake, hold on to her!

- Virginia!

- I want out!

Come back!

- Ginny, come back!

- Virginia!

Greg, unbelievable jump, man!

- What's wrong with Virginia?

- I don't know. She freaked out.

You dumb sh*t,

you could've killed her!

You're the one

that shoved her in my car!

I'd like to break your neck.

Ann! Just ease up a little, okay?

She's new!

She never played the game before!

Maybe we should go after her.

She's okay.

She just lives over there.

Okay, let's go.

What happened to Steve?

He chickened out.

He's on the other side of the bridge.

Hey! That nimrod owes me 20 bucks.

Mother, I miss you so much.

You'd be proud of me now, Mother.

All the kids like me.

I'm even one of the Top Ten.

We go everywhere together.

Who's out there?


I'll walk you home.

No, Etienne.

It's just over there. I'll be fine.

I know where it is.

Etienne, I said I'll be fine!

- Virginia?

- Yes, Daddy.

I was worried.

Where were you?

I was just out with Ann

and the other kids.


...this is not the kind of night

for running around.


Yes, Daddy?


...have you been

over there again?

I don't know why

it bothers you so much.

- Ginny, I thought we agreed...

- No, we didn't agree!

You told me what to do!

I don't even have the right

to go visit my own mother's grave!

Ginny, Ginny, Ginny!


I'm so sorry.

Daddy, please don't be angry with me.

You can't live in the past, honey.

Daddy, I have to remember.

David says until I stop

repressing what happened,

I won't be completely cured.

He says I'm progressing very quickly.

Ginny, we've been happy together.

I don't want any of those memories

to change that.

Oh, God.

Sometimes I wish

we'd never moved back here.

I love this house.

I like living here.

I like my school.

I like my friends.

Please don't take that

away from me.

If this is where you want to live,

this is where we'll live.

This is where I want to be.

Case closed.

All right, then.

Come on, off you go.

- Good night.

- Good night.

I love you, Daddy.
