Locker 13

Synopsis: Skip, the nighttime janitor in an Old West theme park, delves into the mysteries surrounding an old locker. His sage supervisor recounts chilling tales that underscore the importance of making the right choice. The recollection includes an aging boxer who is given an opportunity to become a real killing machine, a young man seeking membership in a secret society who experiences an initiation with deadly consequences, a would be suicide shaken to his core by a menacing member of a very special club, and a hit man for hire playing a devious cat and mouse game with three women who have a score to settle. The stories suddenly come into play when Skip makes an unsettling discovery and faces a life-or-death decision of his own.

Know thyself.

That's an old saying.

Old as in Greek and stuff.

It's written on some temple

in a place called Delphi, right?

Six ancient philosopher-types

took credit

for coming up with that,

including Socrates,

so it must have been

some pretty cutting-edge stuff back then.

Know thyself. Hmm.

So you start thinking,

"Do I know myself?

"I mean, really, who am I?

"What do I want?

"Do I like myself?

"Am I happy?"

and on and on.

I mean, it'll drive you nuts.

But you don't truly know

the answers to those questions

until they're staring you

right in the face.

Well, folks, that about wraps it up

here at Gunsight Pass.

We're sad to say, it's closing time.

Want to thank everyone

for coming out to visit

our slice of the wild, wild West.

What about you?

What about me what?

Do you know yourself?

I don't know, Archie.

I'm just here to clean.

I been on the night cleaning staff

for 27 years.

I'm sorry.

No need. I love it.

Five days a week,

eight hours a day,

480 minutes, 28,600 seconds

of glorious, quiet "me" time.

And now, I'm gonna give you

those glorious seconds.

Um... thanks?


A job like this

where all you have is time,

you really can

get to know yourself.

You married?



What's her name?


Is she beautiful?

I don't really know.

I, uh, never met her in person.

We met online.

She was a tutor when I was inside.

You know the secret

to any relationship?


Know yourself.

Now, I spoke

to your parole officer,

and, believe me,

this is the best place for you.

You have to think

of this as your second chance.

You were in the pen

for two years,

all that noise

and all that chaos?

In here, you get solitude,

not solitary confinement.

What were you in for?

Two years.

No, what'd you do?

I didn't do nothin'.

I sat there.

I was in jail.

No. What put you there?

The judge.

Okay, I got it.

Do we have to wear this uniform?

It's itching the hell outta me.

You ever been to Disneyland?



Come on.

I'll show you something.

Everything you see here

is to put on the illusion

that people are stepping

back in time to the Old West.

All the workers...

the security guards, the gardeners,

the chuck wagon drivers, and us,

the night cleaning crew,

we have to wear these uniforms

to make it more real for them.

It's a living, breathing town.

So there's

more night cleaning staff?

Nope, just you.

Just me?

Aw, come on,

nothing you can't handle.

There's a few tasks.

I'll show you those.

But most everything's

taken care of regular by the daily crew.

You're on your own.

That's why I keep telling you,

you got to know who you are.

There she is.

Beautiful, ain't she?

I guess.

Well, I thought

all jailbirds found God.

Well, not this one.

Apparently not.

What are these?

Part of my authentic

Western outfit?

Yeah, every day.

What the heck

are these doing here?


You know,

I believe that each of us

has the capacity for great things.


Big things.

What would you be willing to do

to have everything you wanted?

I don't know.

Would you be willing to give up

your life as you know it?

Your soul?

There was this young boxer...

young up-and-comer

name of Tommy Novak.

Never heard of him.

Exactly, but he had aspirations,

he had plans, he had talent.

And then you know what happened?


He made some bad choices.

He's nothing like the once proud boxer

we remember only a decade ago.

...Eight, nine, ten.

It's over.

You got a minor concussion.

I don't want you

sparring for a week.

Can I fight?


I can't suspend you yet,
