(THUNDER RUMBLES)

WOMAN:
Do you hear something?

- Is she up again?

- Yeah.

WOMAN:
I'll go.

(VOICE ECHOING) Carrie Anne,

you have to go back to bed.

(GRUNTING)

(WOMAN GRUNTS)

(SPLATTERING, THUDDING)

MAN:
Don't! Don't! Don't!

(SPLATTERING)

- MAN:
Ah!

(BIRDS CHIRPING)

(ACOUSTIC GUITAR PLAYS)

Hey, what time is it?

GIRL:
Like 2230.

Oh, my God, that guy was supposed

to be here at one o'clock.

- It's fine, we'll just wait.

- This is so annoying...

Nowhere else to go.

It's a long way back to Chicago.

(HONKS HORN)

Oh, look who's here.

Finally...

Hey!

You must be the Cassidys?

- Yes.

- Dan.

Hi, Dan.

- Dan Gifford.

- How are you?

So sorry, I'm late.

I left my cell at the office.

I'm sure you tried to call.

- I did. Fifteen times.

- Oh, sorry about that.

(FORCED LAUGHTER)

- Let me show you your new home.

- Yes, great.

DAN:
I just got to dig up the key here.

How was the drive?

WOMAN:
Oh, we were on the road for two

days. Kind of anxious to get settled.

Well, I think you'll be

very comfortable here.

And you'll love the neighborhood.

- Wow...

- Which reminds me...

It's ginormous.

DAN:
If you have any problems,

just give me a call.

- Great. Thanks.

- See you at the potluck.

Mom, this is beautiful.

That is all state park.

Can you believe it?

Good backyard, huh?

Ls that Mr. and Mrs.

Dead People's house?

Oh, wow...

I didn't realize it was so close.

GIRL:
Nobody lives there, right?

No.

No, the place is empty.

You know, that house is the reason

we can even afford to rent this house.

- Really?

- Yeah.

Double murder, kind of a drag

on the real estate market.

(SCOFFS) People got shot on our block,

nobody ever cut our rent.

Come on, help me unpack.

OK. I just want to look around, first.

All right, fine.

(RUSTLING, BIRD SCREECHING,

WINGS FLAPPING)

(TWIG CRACKS)

WOMAN:
Thanks for cooking.

Thank Daddy, he's the one

who taught me how to make this.

Boil the water and put in spaghetti,

and... open the jar thing?

Wow. What a great dad he is.

It's not like you carry that lighter

around because you miss smoking.

Yeah, I miss him sometimes.

I missed him when we were married.

He was on the road

nine months out of the year.

I think this place is going to be

really good for us.

It's just gonna take some time

for me to get used to having you around.

I gave you the biggest room.

- How hard's it going to be?

- (CHUCKLES)

(LAUGHS)

(SOFT THUDDING)

(DISTANT CLATTERING)

(SOUL MUSIC PLAYS)

Um, everyone... This is Sarah Cassidy

and her daughter Elissa.

They're our new neighbors.

They're renting the Reeds' place.

- Welcome to the neighborhood.

- Thank you.

- I made some potato salad.

- Oh, great. Great.

Elissa, do you like to swim?

Pool's at 95. It's like Aruba.

-Hi.

-Hi... Dan...

- Yeah.

- The, um, Jacobson house...

Is anyone living there?

Because late last night

I saw a light go on.

Oh, that'd be Ryan Jacobson, the son.

Really? But you said

it was going to be empty.

No, the son lives there.

ls that a problem?

No.

Good, good.

I mean, we do have a signed lease.

- (SARAH CHUCKLES)

- MAN:
There you go.

- Oh, thank you.

- Thanks.

- BOY:
Marco!

- CHILDREN:
Polo!

- Marco!

- Polo!

That's my son, Tyler.

Honor roll. Student council.

Him and his friends

started this group last year,

famine relief program.

They've raised

about a thousand dollars for, uh...

...Africa or Tibet,

one of those starving places.

Anyway, you should go. Tyler...

I'd like you to meet Elissa.

- Have fun.

- Yeah.

- Hey.

- Hi.

Sorry about my mom.

She gave you the full treatment?
