Okay, now make a wish.

Blow 'em out.

Yeah, yeah, yeah,

All right.

Drayton, where are your manners?

Give the first piece

to the thief.

I didn't steal

your f***in' pigs!

You callin' my son a liar? He saw

your grubby hands steal our property.

Why would I go anywhere near

your dirty pigs?

Or your filthy family?

I swear, the whole world

gonna find out

what kind of brood

you raising here, Verna!

Shut him up. I've had enough.

- Ohh!

- Listen to me.

No hillbilly's gonna ruin

my son's special night.

You ready for your present?

You know you're my special boy.

Come on, Jed.

Here you go.


Yeah, this is it, Jed.

Now, remember,

bad people like him,

they're trying to

break our family apart.

But we're not gonna

let that happen, right?

Now go on now, pick it up.

Jed, pick it up.

Come on now, Jed.

Jed. Jed. Jed. Jed. Jed...

No! No!

- Here you go.

- -Get him, son!


Ohh. Ohh. Ohh. Ohh...

- No!

- You can do it!

- Whoo!


No, please! No!

- Jed. Jed.

- Jed. Jed. Jed...

Jed, go. Go.

That's right, do it!

Jed. Jed. Jed!



Stop! Stop now!


Hey. You let us down, Jed.

It's okay.

Your family's

always here for you.

Remember that.


- You tryin' to make us crash?

- You want me to stop?

Nah, didn't say that.

Look out!

What the hell was that thing?

Hey, Betty.

What is it?

I don't know.

Well, let's go.


It's just a kid.

Let's go!

We're gonna be late!

Hey, there.

You okay?

You shouldn't play in the road.

Help me! Please!

Hey, Betty, where you goin'?

I didn't hit him!

- There's something wrong!

- Betty!

He needs help!

Jesus Christ.

Hey, little guy, you hear me?

Let me help you!


It's okay!

You can come out!


Betty, where'd you get off to?


Come on.

I won't touch you.

I just want to help.


You done good, Jed.

Looks like you can

learn a after all.

Nubbins, go ahead

and learn him some more.

Show him.

Where is she?!

- Take 'er easy, Hal.

- Let me through, goddamnit!

- Hold it! Hold it!

- Get the f*** off me! -We need

to figure out what happened.

- Easy there, Hal.

- That's my baby in there.

Is she in there?

Is my baby in there?

Answer me, goddamnit!

We got one of them.


I couldn't get to her on time.

I'm real sorry, sir,

I swear to god.

Drayton Sawyer.

This time it ain't

the Gorman house.

Nah. You're grown up now.

That means the gas chamber

for you.

For what?

You arrestin' me

for finding a body?

That ain't no crime I heard of.

How about I put a bullet

right in your f***in' skull?

- Hold on.

- Put it away, Hal.

He's right.

We ain't got nothin' on him.

Easy, Hal.

Keep your head on.

Hal, he ain't worth it.

Come on, Hal. Put the gun down.

F***in' trash.

You let those boys go

this instant.

Don't count on it, Verna.

You see them do something wrong?

No, I didn't think so.

You uncuff him.

You let him out of the car.


He's stayin' right there.

What for?

He's not under arrest.

He's under protection.

- From you.

- What are you talkin' about?

I can't count how many

crime scenes I've been to

where there just happened

to be Sawyers there already.

- Them kids ain't safe with you.

- Horseshit.

Send some units over

to the Sawyer house.

You round up all the minors.

I want all of them.

- You hear me?

- You can't do that.
