Love and Mercy



Sometimes it scares me to think

where it's coming from,

you know?


there's someone else

inside there, not me.


what if I...

what if I...

what if I lose it

and never get it back?

What would I do then?

Take a listen to this again,

I wanna...

do something with it.

Um... I've got...

I think I've got it.

The music part,

it worked out in my head, but...

I don't know anything else

except that it should...

it should sound like,

you know, a cry, but...

in sort of a good way

or something.

I want these voices at the end

just to...


All right, Chuck, let's have it.

We don't want to take 16...

Here we go.

- I'm losing it.

- I'm losing the whole record.

That'd be great.

Something's gonna happen.

All right, here we go. You're

grass and I'm a power mower.

Uh, the brothers here,

Dennis, Brian, and Carl.


They all live

in the same house and I grew up

a few blocks down.

Al... Al, where did you live?

With a different melody,

It's the same chord progression,

- with a spin-off.

- Mm-hmm.

So, my part in the chorus

against the band

alternates with the intro

backing the new melody.

Gets around. Clever.

Excuse me.



Hi, how are you?

I'm fine, thanks.

Are these your shoes?

What? Yeah, yeah,

they're my shoes.

I didn't wanna, you know,

mess up the car

because I jog.

See, I jog on the beach

and, um...

I get sand in my shoes,

you know?

- Ah.

- So...

Well, that's very considerate.

But I... you know, I also

get sand in my socks,

I got holes in my socks,

so I did make a mess anyways.

So, I'm sorry about that.

What are you gonna do?

You didn't get sand in the car.

It's no problem.

Can I help you today?

I'd like to buy a car.

Cadillac, you know?


- You've come to the right place.

- Yeah.

This is the Fleetwood.

- Wow.

- My personal favorite.

What do you think?

I don't know.

Well, take your time,

there's no pressure.

Blue is a very calm color.

Is this guy a friend of yours?

I feel like he's watching us.

No, he's not my friend.

He's my bodyguard.

Come on.

Something like that.

It's a funny word,

isn't it, bodyguard?

- Uh...

- Bodyguard.

- Are we on "Candid Camera"?

- No.

No, no, no. I do need a car.

Can we just sit in here

for a minute?


Well, the master lock

feature works.

We know that much.


My brother died.

Oh. Oh, I'm...

I'm so sorry.

He drowned.

A few years ago.


But I'm all... broken up

about it still, you know?

I mean, he wasn't even 40 yet.

That is... that's terrible.

- So sad.

- Yeah.

But I just don't get it.

I think about it every day,

and I just don't get it.

I guess it's better just not

to think about it, right?


force it out of your mind.


Yeah, I can understand that.

I'm not married anymore.


Do you have a pen I could use?

I guess I need

a little piece of paper, too.

Uh, sure. Just, um...

Thank you.

Brian, come on out of the car.

- I'm Brian.

- Melinda.

- Hi.

- Hi.

- Come on, Brian.

- I want this car.

The Fleetwood?

No, no, yeah, but I want this car.



I want this car.

This one we're sitting in.

- Oh, the floor model?

- Yes, it's your favorite, right?

- You want...

- It's special. You understand?

- Can I have it?

- Sure.

- Okay.

- Yes.

- Hey.

- Hey.

- What's happening, guys?

- Hi, Gene.

- Hi, I'm Dr. Eugene Landy.

- Hi.

How are you?

I'm Brian's brother

from another mother.

- What's up?

- I want the blue Fleetwood, Gene.

- Really?

- Yeah.

You sure you don't want

a Maserati?

- No offense.

- None taken.

- No, that one.
