Ten-thirty.

Are you expecting company?

No. Just you.

I got my shoes on, I'll go.

It's the peninsula. It's probably

someone has the wrong address.

- Back in a jiff.

- There's an umbrella by the front door.

Thank you.

Hi. Can I help you?

[CHLOE SCREAMS]

Get up, honey.

Oh, my God.

[ALARM BEEPING]

[PHONE RINGING]

Ahem. Hello.

WOMAN [ON PHONE]: Good evening,

this is Heidi with Home Security Systems.

Hi.

Our system shows

that your alarm has been activated.

Is everything Okay?

Yeah, we just got back from a party

and my wife entered the wrong code.

Sorry about that.

Okay, no problem.

We'll reset your system immediately.

Is there anything else

I can help you with?

Uh, no, no. We're fine, thanks.

"We", have a great evening and thanks

for using Home Security Systems.

Thanks for the fast response. It's good

to know you guys are on the ball.

Take care.

[ALARM STOPS]

Okay...

so who can tell me where

the security dispatcher went wrong here?

Anybody, anyone.

It's not fifth grade, just shout it out.

MAN:

She didn't ask for the owner's password.

That is correct.

Every subscriber creates

a home security password.

That password is on file and will show up

on your terminal if the alarm is triggered.

Once you verify this password, you'll know

you are talking to who they say they are.

Now, remember the four components

of a subscriber call:

P.A.R.T.

P, "Password .".

A?

Anybody for A?

LIZ:
"Authority."

That's correct. Authority.

When you make your verification call,

if nobody answers...

or if the person who answers

does not provide that password...

you are required to call the police

or the local fire department.

This is very important.

R-

- Anybody for R?

- The client's R.P.

"Responsible Person," that's correct.

That's someone who is designated

a contact for emergencies.

This is usually a neighbor

or a close relative.

Point is, you want to notify someone

who is independent of the situation...

let them know what's going on.

T-

Anybody?

Nobody? Okay.

"Taken care of."

Never ever let the

subscriber off the line...

until you know

the situation has been resolved.

Is that understood?

BESS:

How is the little princess doing?

Fever's down,

she was watching cartoons when I left.

Good. Always a good sign.

Mike, I know you want the hours,

but maybe you should just go home.

Be with Robin. Take a few days.

My sister's got her. It's taken care of.

You have been working overtime

since November.

MIKE:
I'm fine. I take cat naps

between calls, I sleep in my chair.

"- I'm actually sleeping right now.

BESS". Sure.

MAN [ON PHONE]:
I'm not seeing

your name anywhere here.

Okay. It's a joint account, though,

so my signature...

- We need to confirm with your husband.

- Like I said before, he's not here right now.

We can only issue funds

to the account holder.

My name is on that account too.

- I'm not seeing your name on here.

- Chloe Paige.

P-A-I-G-E.

- This is your husband's last name?

- No, it's MacPherson. David MacPherson.

- Let me check the details again.

- I really need access to the accounts.

- I'm afraid there's a hold on the accounts.

- Excuse me'?

I'm sorry. It's the best I can do.

Have a nice day.

Hello?

[DIAL TONE HUMS]

[SIGHS]

Please stop playing that thing

while you're eating.

Jacob.

- Jacob.

- Hey!

Come on, I've told you a million times

not to play while you eat.

Okay? And try and pick it up a little bit

or we're gonna be late for practice.

Ten minutes.

WOMAN:
Here you go.

CHLOE:
Thanks, Stacey.

- Don't get caught in that rain tonight, huh?

- I won't.

[POP MUSIC PLAYING

[INDISTINCT CHATTER]

Have a good day.

Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!

COACH:
Hip! Hip!

All right. Everybody head home.

WOMAN:
Good job!

Hey, good game.

[III]

BOY:
Bye, guys! GIRL: Bye!

[TRUCK STARTS]

So how'd you feel about practice today?

[JACOB SIGHS]

It was okay.

Just okay?

I thought you had some awesome hits.

Why can't we just go home?

CHLOE:
We are going home.

- I mean, back to the city.

[CHLOE SIGHS]

Look, we promised we were gonna

give this a real shot out here, remember?

Yeah, and it's already been a year

and it still sucks.

- Look, your father...

- What?

He obviously doesn't want to live here.

It's complicated.

- Just tell him you want him to come home.

- Jacob.

I don't see

what's so complicated about that.

Look, I don't just have a magic wand.

I can't just make everything okay.

No, you just don't want to.

WOMAN [ON RADIO]: At this point,

we're only seeing windy conditions...

that are starting

to approach warning criteria.

Now, many other areas have already

seen the ooding, the severe rain...

and of course the electrical storm.

That is also expected to make landfall

here at around 9:00 tonight...

through tomorrow morning.

[PHONE RINGING]

Many homes already being evacuated,

with temporary shelters in effect.

Keep it right here as we track that storm

and continue to bring you the very latest.

Aren't you gonna answer that?

- It could be Dad.

- I got it.

Hello?

Hello.

ALICE [ON PHONE]: Hey, babe.

- Hey.

Sorry, I was just checking

another incoming call.

I'm on my way.

I'll be there in half an hour.

Okay. I'll see you soon.

Was it Dad?

Alice. Sorry, honey.

- No, you're not.

- Oh, cut the attitude, Jacob.

Sit down.

I wanna talk to you about something.

I don't have to talk to you.

- Okay, that's it. I'm pulling the Wi-Fi.

- You can't do that!

You can get it back

when you start showing a little respect.

- Screw you!

- Don't...!

Don't you talk to me like that, okay?

I don't deserve that.

I am doing the best that I can here.

JACOB:
Dad wouldn't do this!

How do you know what your dad

would do? He's never here, is he?

Maybe if you left he'd come back!

He knows you only married him for money.

[III]

I hate you.

CHLOE:
Jacob?

Jacob?

[DOOR SLAMS]

I'm sorry.

Jacob.

Hey.

- Jacob, please come out.

- Go away.

I am so, so sorry

about what happened up there.

[VIDEO GAME BEEPING]

[CHLOE SIGHS]

Look, Jacob, I...

I don't have all the answers,

but I promise you I'm trying.

Just leave me alone.

Look, your dad is gonna be home soon.

But right now it's just you and me,

so let's not fight, okay?

Jacob?

I love you, buddy.

Don't call me buddy.

Hi. Can I help you?

Stand up.

- I don't want no problem.

- Then turn around.

Look, please.

Don't hurt me, mister, all right?

I got kids at home and a cat.

Don't worry.

Cats can take care of themselves.
