Home Fries

Synopsis: Hamburger joint waitress Sally Jackson is pregnant. When Beatrice, the wife of the father, finds out about his infidelity, she sends her sons from a previous marriage, military pilots Angus and Dorian Montier, to scare the living daylights out of him. Their gunship does such a good job, without hitting him, that he dies from a heart attack. Worrying about radio interference that night, they investigate who might have heard too much within the fairly empty reception perimeter, and soon discover only Sally could, still ignorant about her affair with his step-dad Henry. Dorian takes a job there to be sure, but soon falls for her himself, while mother-obsessed moron Angus would do anything to anyone for her honor...

Welcome to Burger-Matic.

Can I take your order?

The usual.

Vanilla milkshake.

Very tall...

...very cold.

$ 1.03. Drive through.

It's me, honey.

Drive through!

$ 1.03.

Honey, I did it, like you wanted.

Made a clean break.

My wife knows about us.


She asked me if I was having an affair

and I said, "Yes."

Did you tell her about this?

$ 1 .03.


Keep the change.

You're closing up tonight, aren't you?

Let me give you a ride home.

I don't need a ride home.

I need a father for my baby.

Tonight, how about just letting me

give you a ride home?

All you want to do is poke dents

in the top of my baby's head.

Why don't you go home, you old fool?

Back to your wife.

- Someone will see, I tell you.

- Look at this guy!

Goddamn, what a driver!

- Who's doing all that talking?

- I got him!

Sounds like truckers.

Sally, you clean

the shake machine tonight.

There he goes! Don't lose him.

Don't lose him!

I cleaned the shake machine yesterday,

and I've got seniority.

- Who is that?

- And I've got a baby.

What's that have to do with it?

I almost cut my knuckles open

on that stirrer last time.

I was bleeding like a stuck pig.

We're losing him.

What's traumatic...

...is all that hillbilly music

you be listening to.

It's traumatic to him, and to me.

Where'd he go?

Talk to Billy.

Goddamn it, who is that?

- He's at your 3 o'clock.

- I'm on him.

That's enough.

Let's get out of here.

Who is this?

Who's on this channel?

Who is on this channel?

Roy, clean the shake machine.

You're newer and she's pregnant.

I'm lactose intolerant, man.

These headphones are messed up.

It's like a war movie.

I'm not shooting.

I'm not shooting!

Disarm it!

You disarm that.

I'm not doing it!

Disarm it!


Disarm it!

It'll put the fear of God in him.


Get a shot of the two of us.

I'll probably go

straight to hell for that.

I just couldn't pass it up

with him sitting like that.

What do you got?

His name is Henry Lever.

Works up at the cigarette factory.

I seen his car halfway

in the ditch over there.

Found these pills in the woods.

They're heart pills.

Got his name on them.

I figure he died of a heart attack.

I don't know why

he come out here to have it.

No sign of funny business?

Not that I could see.

Stop wasting that film then.

His wife been contacted?

No, sir.

Why don't you get on over there?

This is Roger in car 6.

I have a heart attack victim

at the Borderline Camp.

I need to notify the next of kin

of a Henry Lever.

Can you verify the address

at 1017 North Maple?


You going to need a mortuary vehicle?

I think we can just fit

the body in the front seat.

You get the shell casings?

See y'all next month.

- Take care.

- See you next month.

You know, I think this went

a little too far.

You said we would just scare him.

We did just scare him.


Did you get the shell casings?

Dorian! Did you get the casings?

I got the damn shell casings, Angus.

They're in my duffle bag.

We have some loose ends

we might have to deal with.

We got a woman and we got two guys.

Willie and Ray.

Not the people on the radio.

Or was it Roy?

I'm telling you, it's just

run-of-the-mill interference.

It's no big deal.

How big a radius is it?

What else is out there?

There's a sawmill.

There's Ted's Plumbing.

There's a Burger-Matic on 601.

I mean, there's nothing out there.


That'll be $ 6.40, please.

- Ask her about the...

- Nice headphones.

- Are they VHF?

- She can't hear.

Find out if they're VHF.

- We were noticing your headphones.

- My headphones?
