I hate teIevision.

Gives me headaches.

( woman on TV ):

...makes your

coIor-treated hair...

You know, I heard there's

so many magnetic waves traveIing

through the air

because of TV and teIephones,

that we're Iosing, Iike

ten times as many brain ceIIs

as we're supposed to.

Like, aII the moIecuIes

in our heads are aII unstabIe.

AII the companies know

about it

but they're not

doing anything about it.

It's, Iike, a big conspiracy.

( sighing ):

You can pick something.

I don't care.

Say heIIo to Iuscious,

fuII bod...

You have any idea

how many eIectro-rays

are traveIing

through our head every second?

I got a better one.

Have you heard about

this videotape

that kiIIs you

when you watch it?

What kind of tape?

A tape, a reguIar tape.

PeopIe rent it, I don't know.

You start to pIay it

and it's, Iike,

somebody's nightmare.

Then suddenIy,

this woman comes on

smiIing at you, right?

Seeing you through the screen...

and as soon as

it's over...

your phone rings.

Someone knows

you've watched it

and what they say is...

''You wiII die

in seven days''

and exactIy seven

days Iater...

Who toId you that?

Somebody from Revere.

I don't...

Who toId you?

What's your probIem?

I've watched it.

( sighing ):

It's a story, Katie.

No, me and Josh,

we saw it Iast weekend.

I thought you were

with your parents.

I wanted to teII you.

You were with

Josh aII weekend?

Some of his friends

got this-this pIace

up in the mountains.

They were trying

to record a footbaII game.

I guess the reception

was so bad...

What are you taIking about?

Listen to me!

When we pIayed the tape,

the game wasn't there.

It was...


Wh-What was it?

It was something eIse.

We thought it was

some kind of sick joke...

and then the phone rang.

It was a week ago...

one week ago tonight.

( chuckles nervously )

You're just trying to scare me.

( gagging )

( gagging continuing )

Oh, my God, Katie!

Are you okay?

Katie... oh, my...

( snickering )

You freak!

( laughing ):

You totaIIy feII for it!


So... did you guys,

you know, do anything?

Like what?

Oh, my God, you totaIIy did!

You ho!

TeII me now!

( phone ringing )

( gasps )

( ticking )

( ringing continuing )

There reaIIy is a tape?

( ringing continuing )

( ringing continuing )

( sighs )

This is so Iame.

Wait, don't!

Embrey residence.

( pants nervously )

( rain continuing )


Hi, Mom.

( sighs angrily )

( chuckles )

Yeah, that was Becca.

My mom says hi.

She's gIad you're here.

Ask her where she keeps

the Vicodin.

( chuckles )

Yeah, we're about

to go to sIeep.

Okay. Yeah, I wiII.

Okay! Okay, yeah, yeah, I wiII.

No, I won't.

Bye, Mom.

( beeps )

( TVstatic blaring )

( static continuing )

Becca, quit being a b*tch.

Where's the remote?

( rain continuing )

( TVstatic resumes )

( static continues )

Becca, quit it!

( static continues )

( whimpers )

( panting nervously )

( sighs )

( gasps ) ( eerie rumbling )

( panting )

( whimpers softly )

( whimpers )

( thump )

Becca, can you hear me?

( panting )

( static hissing )

( hissing continuing )

( breathing nervously )

( high-pitched

electronic whine )

( static blaring )

( rain continuing )

( rain pattering )

( distant door opens )


Don't teII me what to write!

That asshoIe's screaming

for my attention

and I'm not going

to give it to him.

I am being objective!

Listen, Harvey,

you punctiIious prick

you touch my coIumn

and I'm coming down there

and poking your eye out

with that IittIe red penciI

you Iike so much!





Sorry I'm Iate.

No worries.

I'II wait in the car.

Have you got a moment,

Ms. KeIIer?

Um, sure.

CaII me RacheI.

PIease, sit down.

He certainIy is

very independent, isn't he?

Oh, yeah, he sure is.

I never have to teII him

to do anything.

WeII, if that's a probIem

you'd be the first teacher

in history to say so.

Ms. KeIIer...


I know that Aidan recentIy Iost

his cousin...

Yes, and I'm doing what I can

to find him some good

daycare. It's just...

Oh, no,

that's not what I meant.

By aII means, take your time.

I know they were very cIose,

Aidan and his cousin.

Yeah. They spent a few

nights a week together.

Did he taIk to you

about her death?

WeII, Iike you said, he's

not the taIkative type.

That doesn't mean

he has nothing to say.

He knows I'm there.

Yes, I'm sure he does

but he may be expressing himseIf

in... other ways.

I'd Iike to show you something.

That's his cousin.

That's Katie.

Ms. KeIIer...

I'm bothered by these drawings.

Listen, I appreciate

your concern

but my son Iost his best

friend three nights ago.

He's just trying

to deaI with it.

Yes, I understand,

but these pictures...

Are Aidan's way

of working it out...

of expressing himseIf,

Iike you said.

( keys jingling )

He'II be okay.

You say she died

three nights ago?

Yeah, that's right.

Aidan drew these Iast week.



ShaII we read something?

I'm kind of tired.


Sweet dreams.

We don't have enough time.

Oh, honey,

I know I've been working a Iot

and I'm sorry

but I promise you,

I'm going to make it up to you.

I'm not taIking about that.

I'm taIking about

time before we die.

You have Iots of time.

So, you know when I'm going

to die?


No one does

but I know you don't have

Vince Russo

Vincent James Russo (born January 24, 1961) is an American author, podcaster, professional wrestling writer and pundit. He is notable for his tenures with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) in creative roles. Russo occasionally made appearances as an on-screen authority figure, and professional wrestler, in WCW and TNA. His writing style, which emphasizes shock value and "swerves" over in-ring action, has made him a controversial figure with wrestling fans. His writing has been credited with helping lead the WWF to record ratings in the late 1990s, while being blamed as a contributing factor in the fall of WCW and the decline of TNA. During a self-booked in-ring career in WCW, Russo became a one-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion, scored televised singles victories over future WWE Hall of Famers Ric Flair and Booker T (the latter to win his world title), and never lost a match. He also placed himself in multiple pay-per-view main events in TNA.Since April 2015, he has hosted a daily podcast with his company: "Vince Russo's The Brand". more…
