Meet Charlie-- helpful dad, upstanding citizen... and an 18-year veteran of the greatest law enforcement agency in the land:

♪♪ (whistling) ♪♪ the Rhode Island State Police.

That's Charlie's home-- modest, like the man. Even though he lived on the water,

Charlie wasn't much of a swimmer... which will come into play a little later in our story.

But I'm getting way ahead of myself. You know, maybe it's best if we just go back and begin at the beginning.

As a young man, Charlie had the world by its bootstraps. He was the best young trooper on the force...

and was dating the prettiest and smartest gal in town. Her name was Layla, just like the melody.

Mmm, Charlie. You have no idea how much I love you.

Yeah? Yeah. Well, will you stay with me no matter what? Of course, Charlie.

Well, what if I had to move to the Arctic, and you could never come home, and you had to eat whale blubber for the rest of your life?

Would you still stay with me? Yeah, I'd stay.

But I hope that never happens. Yeah, me too. (cheering)

Well, by springtime, they had made it official. Boy, let me tell you, that was some wedding.

It was presided over by Father Ken Gumbert, and half the Rhode Island State Police force was in attendance.

Congratulations, Charlie. Thank you, Captain.

(engine starting) (cheering)

(laughing) Ooh! All right.

Look what I got. Ooh! Whoo. Here we go.


Oh, um, excuse me. Do you people take checks?

Say that again. Do we people take checks? You mean, a black man? No, no, no, no, no. God, no. Your company.

Don't give me that backtracking bull. That was a racist slur! No, it wasn't, really. I-I would never--

Tell you what! I'll make it real easy for you. Why don't you just pay me in cotton or a cartload of watermelons?

Or how's about a couple of them buckets of fried chicken? 'Cause you know how we black people, we just love fried chicken, Mr. Charlie.

Hey, no, come on now. Settle down. What's going on? This cat don't believe a black cat knows how to cash a check. Ain't that about a b*tch!

Charlie, I don't wanna ever hear you use the "N" word in this house. What? I-- I never said anything remotely racist.

Oh, so it's the little people thing then? No! You think just 'cause I'm small, you can just push me around?

Well, come on, my friend, let's boogie. I'm gonna give you a little lesson in low center of gravity. What?

(grunting) Hey, whoa, hey, stop it! Hey! Cut it-- Stop it now. Sir!

Don't patronize me with that "sir" crap. Whoa, hey, those are illegal. (gasping)

Stop. Oh, God! Ow!

Oh, it's on now! It's on. Charlie! (groaning)

Charlie, don't hit him! (screaming) Charlie, Charlie, Charlie, stop it! Charlie, stop it!

Charlie, Charlie. Hey, hey, hey, just let me handle this. Stop it! Excuse me, Mister, um, "Jackson"--

Uh-- Oh, stop it! What-What-What is your first name? It's Shonte. (growling)

Shonte, I'm-- I am-- I am so, so sorry. I apologize.

Oh, come on, here. Let me walk you to your car. I just don't have the patience for people who judge books by their cover.

And you shouldn't have to. Treating me like a dumb b*tch. I mean, who does he think he's talking to?

I'm a tenured professor of molecular genetics over at Brown, and I'm head of the Boston chapter of MENSA. You're kidding?

No. I'm just driving this limo as a sociological experiment, that's it.

But MENSA? I'm president of the Providence chapter. No kidding.


Just when Charlie thought life couldn't get any sweeter, old Mr. Stork dropped in to pay him and Layla a visit.

(groaning and screaming) It's a boy!

Wow! He's so-- Wow!

(panting) Huh? What? (screaming) Whoa, oh, my God, we're in luck. He's got company!

(both screaming) DOCTOR: Push! Push! MALE NARRATOR: Charlie loved those boys so much,

he just couldn't face the truth. And so he went on with his life, as if everything was normal.

(party chatter) (music plays) Hey, Finneran. Hey, buddy.

Hey! Hope you brought your appetite with ya. Oh, I did. Ahh! Charlie, your kids look great.

Yeah, don't they? Thanks. Uh-huh.

Charlie, (kids playfully scream) Just between you and me, did you ever notice that your kids have sort of a year-round tan?

Yeah, well, uh, my great grandmother's half Italian. Half Italian?

Oh, yeah. Well, that's probably why the water beads off their hair, huh?

(sighs) Yeah, so? I mean, a lot of people have different kind of hair. Oh, yeah.

I mean, what are you-- what are you-- what are you getting at? No, no, I'm just saying is-- You know--

Come on, Charlie, get with it! Those kids, they're bigger than them sausages. Knock it off, Finneran. Those are my children you're talking about.

Since you brought it up, I've been meaning to ask you about that. Finneran! Get over here. It's your turn.

Charlie, don't mind me. It's j-just the beer talking, you know? Whoo!

Hmm. Sure.

There's something powerful bubbling up inside me, Father.

And I'm afraid that someday,

if I don't do something, I'm gonna explode.

Where does this rage come from, my son? I don't know. It's a lot of things, really.

Take my wife, for example. I love her like no other, but part of me suspects that she may be having an affair.

And I'm-I'm probably just being paranoid here, but I get the feeling...

that the entire town is laughing at me behind my back.

Charlie, that you? MALE NARRATOR: Eventually, Charlie's worst fears were realized.

I'm so sorry, Charlie. Really, I am.

But I have to do this. I found my soul mate.

But... (exhales) I thought I was your soul mate. Tsk. Oh.

Come on, legs. Let's roll, baby. I don't know what to say.

I guess the heart just wants what the heart wants.

Bye, Charlie. But you said you'd eat whale blubber.

Oh, she'll be eating blubber, all right, just as soon as I free willy.

(groaning) (engine starts)

It's funny how a man reacts when his heart gets broken. Some break down and cry like a baby.

Others, they take out an Uzi and climb a clock tower. But Charlie Baileygates didn't seem to react at all.

He just swallowed hard, felt that slab of heartache slide over the lump in this throat,

and he locked it all away.

As you can imagine, it wasn't easy... for little Jamaal, Lee Harvey and Shonte Junior...

growing up without a mom, but Charlie made that little house into a big old home, and the boys flourished.

Let me tell you, they were smart ones. -What are you buildin', fellas? -An airplane, Daddy.

(motor cycle engine turns over) (imitates engine) -(laughing) -Bye-bye!

Bye, Daddy! Have a good time at work!

And the boys, well, they came into their own.

CHRIS ROCK (on TV): make her toss my salad! The guy's like, "Toss my salad? W-Well, what's that?"

Yeah, well, having your salad tossed... means having your ass tossed with jelly or syrup.

I prefer syrup. He's a funny mamma jamma.

Although Charlie's police work had started to suffer, the kids were doing great.

Damn! I can't figure out the atomic mass of this monkey fetus.

Shoot, man, that stuff's simple. Look. Tell me this, tell me this. What, what?

What's a deuteron made up of? Duh, a proton and a neutron. Then what's this cotton-pickin' electron doin' right there?

I don't know. Well, get it outta there then! Okay, so you sayin' I add up the atomic masses of the proton and the neutron, right?

Mm-hmm. I sees that, but what do I do with the gosh darn electron? Can I bring it over here? Enrico Fermi would roll over in his cotton-pickin' grave if he heard that stupid stuff.

Oh, hey, Dad. Hey, Pops, how you doin', man? What's all the commotion down here? Just school stuff and stuff.

How's my little guy doin'? Strugglin'. This quantum physics is confusing. If I don't buckle down, I'm gonna get myself another B-plus. Oh, that'd be whack.

Man, he so dumb, he think calculus is a Roman emperor. Give it up, dog. Well, you think polypeptide's a mamma jamma toothpaste.

Oh, I gotta get outta here. I don't want to have to bust a cap. Kisses.

Mm, Daddy. See ya later. Love ya! All right.

Yeah, Charlie was gettin' a lot of respect inside the house, but outside, well, that was another story.

Mornin', Ed. Charlie.

Say, Ed, did you see where my paper went today? Uh, the wife's got it in the crapper.

Well, could you tell her to throw it on the porch when she's done? Can't you get one at work?

Yeah, I... suppose I could. You betcha.

Hey, Charlie. Hey, George, Herb. Hi, Charlie. How do, fellas?

-Hi, Charlie. -Listen, Dick, I was-- Hey, guys, check out the rack on this one.

Whoa! Oh, yeah, that's what daddy likes. It looks like a dead heat in a zeppelin race.

-Yeah, a couple of Hindenburgs, huh? -Oh, the humanity! Come on, guys, take it easy. She's a mom.

(laughing) "She's a mom."

She's not my mom! She's a yummy mom.

You kill me! "She's a mom."

Sure, that is good. Oh.

Listen, uh, Dick, I'm sorry, uh, to bother you like this, but, uh, uh, your-your-your car is gonna have to be moved.

(chuckling) Yeah, sure, Charlie, okay. I should be done here in another ten or fifteen minutes.

You know, I hate to be a stickler, Dick, but, uh, the law states that you can't park in one place for more than an hour,

and you've been there for-- goin' on three days now.

All right, all right, the law's the law. Park it behind the grocery store, will ya, Charlie?

Yeah, sure. This one? MALE NARRATOR: There's an old saying:

An ostrich with his head in the sand makes a lousy cop. My fault. You see, if you can't deal with your own problems,

well, it's hard to deal with others'. Sweetie. Sweetie? That's kind of dangerous.

You wanna move it up onto the sidewalk, away from the traffic? My dad says you're a joke, and I don't have to listen to you.

(sighs) Well, your father is entitled to his opinion,

but I am an officer of the law, and, uh, by all rights, I-- -Get lost! -You should watch your mouth, little girl.


Thank you, have a nice day. Excuse me. Charlie! Hey! Hey.

You mind if I get ahead of you? I'm in a wicked rush. Is that okay? Oh, yeah, sure, go ahead. You're a doll. Aw. Hey, kids, over here! Now!

We got a customer down here with a full-on fallopian fungus. She's baking a loaf of bread, and I think it's sourdough. (inhales)

(woman screams)

(grunting) (grunting continues)

Mm-mm, that looks good. Here you go, Colonel. Very good, Malcolm. Thank you.

Colonel, we got a problem. There's something wrong with Charlie. DISPATCHER (over walkie): One-X to 112. 112 responding.

Of course, there's not much about this sort of thing... in the Rhode Island State Police manual,

so they sent him up to Boston to see a team of highly trained head doctors. They quickly identified the problem.

You got a major screw loose. Huh? Doctors have diagnosed you as having a split personality. A schizo.

I-I don't remember any of this. That's because... according to that report, it wasn't you that this was happening to.

It was this other guy. Hank. Huh? He said his name was Hank. -And apparently Hank is trying to get out. -Trying to get out?

What do you mean, "get out"? How did he get in? You created him. By not dealing with your problems, Charlie.

(inhales deeply) Ever since, uh-- (stammering) Well, you know, you've been avoiding confrontation.

But this guy inside-- he doesn't. Hank. Doctors feel that, uh, you've created this character out of necessity.

You never stick up for yourself. (sighs) Charlie, why didn't you take a vacation when Layla left?

Why would I? You know? I mean, wives leave their husbands every day in this country.

There's no reason to shortchange the department. I mean, it's not like I had the flu. (crying)

(sniffling, crying) Have you picked up your medication, Charlie?

(crying continues) Mm-hmm.

I'm really not crazy about it, though. (clears throat) You know, it makes me so dry.

You have to take it anyway. Dr. Rabinowitz assures us... that if you do, everything'll be fine. WOMAN (outside office): This is a bunch of crap!

No wonder you're the smallest state. Little mind, little state. It shouldn't even be a state. It should be the District of Rhode Island.

Whatever you say. Can you take these gosh darn things off, please? And could you stop looking at my ass?

Pritchard, what-- what's going on out here? Well, Colonel, her name's Waters, Irene P. I pulled her over on 95 for a broken taillight. I ran a check.

She's got an outstanding warrant in upstate New York. Hit and run? Hit and run. Injured pedestrian signed a complaint.

Oh, well, I think I might remember that. That is ridiculous. I've never been in an accident. Not in my whole life.

Well, I've just gotten off the phone with the New York State Patrol. They don't seem to think it's so ridiculous.

Look, ju-- How can we fix-- Were you in Massena, New York, last Friday, second of May? Well, yeah, I live there, but I didn't have any accident.

Look, I'm just driving down to Block Island to see my sister. You seem like a nice guy. Is there any way you might let me handle this by mail?

Unfortunately, Miss Waters, I'm not the one you have to convince. If there's been a mistake, you have to clear it up in Massena.

What? Okay, wait. You-- Because of somebody else's mistake, I have to get in my car...

and drive all the way back to upstate New York?

No, ma'am. We'll have one of our troopers escort you.

(phone ringing) Hey, Hollywood, turn your phone off. Yeah? IRENE (over phone): You're an ass. Oh, hello, Irene. What did I do now?

Listen, I'm sitting at a police station somewhere in Rhode Island, and they're shipping me back to Massena on some bogus crap.

Sound familiar? Whoa, whoa, whoa, slow down. I don't have a clue what you're talking about. Dickie! Cut the baloney! (deep sigh)

Listen to me, okay? It's over, Dickie. It's over. So please just stop messing with me...

and call your friends and tell them to back off, okay? Look, I'm being a straight shooter here.

If you need help, I'll help you. Just give me all the details. I'll get to the bottom of it. All right?

Massena, New York? Man, damn, Daddy, that's damn near Canada. I know, I know. It wasn't my idea.

I gotta take this gal up north, and then the colonel ordered me to take a week's vacation. Why a week? Man, that's a long mamma jamma time.

Well, he wants me to rest while I'm getting used to the medication. Aw, come on, you don't have to worry about us, Daddy. We're grown up now.

(country club jazz music plays) Now who the hell's this Irene honey, anyway?

She worked for me the past couple years. I hired her to be my golf course superintendent.

We got close. No, you got stupid.

These are the loose ends that can hang you, Dickie. And me too. How much does she know? She might have gotten wind of some things.

Yeah, well, we're gonna find out. The complaint was signed by a guy named Peterson.

He's with the E.P.A. E.P.A.? I thought they were in our pocket.

Well, not all of 'em. MALE NARRATOR: Well, even though Charlie... didn't wholeheartedly agree with the top brass,

he did as he was told. Careful on the road, Charlie. Okay, Colonel.

Hang on, ma'am. Yeah. (engine turns over)

This vacation is just what Charlie needs. I bet he's a new man when he gets back.

If we let him back. What do you mean?

Well, I mean that he's become a pretty big liability. We may have to let him go.

Let him go? But-But, Captain, police work is Charlie's whole li-- I know, I know, damn it. I know.

By the looks of her, she's been here for a while. Well, I doubt we're gonna be able to move her, but we should try.

but I think we did the right thing.

but right now, we're gonna ask you to come along with us. Well, why don't you just explain it to me now? Well, ma'am,

Yeah. Well, Miss Waters, uh, good luck.

And I hope everything works out great for you. Thanks a lot, Charlie.

I haven't done anything wrong, and you know it. What about the marijuana roaches you left behind when you moved out of your apartment?

So I smoked some pot. What is that, a crime? Uh-huh.

As is being an accessory to bribery, embezzlement, tax evasion and racketeering. -What are you talking about? -Does the name Dickie Thurman ring a bell?

His company, Cedar Creek Limited, has been under a sealed grand jury investigation for 18 months.

How does that make me an accessory? I laid some sod on Dickie's golf course. So? Tell me this-- a big operation like the Cedar Creek Country Club--

How'd you get the job as the head greens keeper? By default. This guy, Tedeschi or Tedescho,

he was hired before me, but he died. Heart problem or something.

The feds believed that Irene knew... more than she thought she knew, and her life was in danger.

They explained that everything had been happening right under her nose. Payoffs of government agencies, threats towards those who stood in the way--

and her predecessor's heart attack? Well, that was just cold-blooded murder.

Oh, man.

Can you excuse me? (door opens and closes) (knocking at front door)

Pizza kid. How much? Uh, that comes to 13.95.

(grunts) OH. (thud to ground) (grunts, groans)


Oh, son of a b*tch!

(car tires screech in gravel) (panting)

Well, it was a good thing Charlie had told her... he was staying at the Chuck E. Cheese Lodge and Miniature Golf Resort.

Charlie? Irene finagled a key from the front desk and let herself in.

Charlie. (snoring)

-Charlie, what's going on here? -Hmm? Irene? Oh! Oh, uh, uh-- (chuckling)

Irene, I was just, um-- I was gonna, um, study your file... and, uh, try to find a loophole.

Did your lips get as chapped as mine on the ride down? Never mind! I need your help.

There was a shootout down at the thing, and the agents are dead. -Dead? -Yeah, they were after me, Charlie.

Oh, God. See, this is Dickie's work. I know it.

-So what are you gonna do? -We'll call the police. What? No, you can't do that.

Dickie has those guys in his back pocket. That's why I came to you. How-- Wha-- How do you-- Oh!

Hey, this is serious stuff! You don't-- (sighs) I'm outta here.

Hey, wait. No, don't do that! Come on, hold on! Just let me think for a second, okay? Think someplace else, Charlie. This is the first place they're gonna look.

Damn it!

So where are we going, anyway? You'll see!

Well, they went on the lam for a bit, and then Charlie made a couple of phone calls. (barking)

Irene, take it easy now. Charlie? Don't worry. I'll take care of it. Hey.

Good work, Baileygates. Thanks. I'm sorry I had to meet you all the way out here.

No, that's okay. It's just as well. Poor gal's a little paranoid. My kids are like that. Somewhere along the line, they just get this idea that the cops are the bad guys--

(grunting, gasping)

Listen, I don't know what's going on, and I didn't tell the feds anything. Dickie told me you were street smart, huh?

Come on, you've seen Charlie in action. The guy's like origami. He folds under pressure. When the big game's on the line, he's busy ridin' the pine.

Okay, wait, wait. Can you just--

I stay outta his business, he stays outta mine. Look.

I really, really appreciate your help, but is there any way that maybe we could get...

Charlie back out here for a little huddle? No problem.

While you're at it, climb that pole over there and take a piss on the power lines. Look, I'm not here to twist your niblets. I'm here to save your life.

But if I'm gonna do that, I'll need total "uninanonynymity."

Okay. Sound good, candypants? Hank, don't call me that.

Vince Foster was murdered! I told you! Oh, man! Will you quit hackin' into them damn Pentagon files, man?

Ain't no nevermind who them crooked politicians be killin'. You need to just do your damn studyin'. Man, what did Daddy tell you about snoopin', huh? Yeah, man.

You keep foolin' around, you gonna get that scholarship to Yale taken away from you. Be stuck up there at Stanford with them damn sling-blade mamma jammas.

(laughing) Shoot, my friend, you be lucky to get accepted to Duke gettin' a 1430 on your S.A.T.

-Mamma jamma, you know I had the flu. -The flu, my ass. You had a mamma jamma aneurysm gettin' a 1430.

Aneurysm? Man, you talkin' some smack now. (knocking) Now you see, man? That's probably one of them Ivy League sumbitches now.

Get your big-ass head up and get the door, man. Get the door. Don't fool with my stuff. Get outta the way. Gimme some of them chips.

Wait, wait. Wait! He's a schizo! BASEBALL PLAYER: What the hell's wrong with him?

What happened, anyway? MALE NARRATOR: Yeah, Charlie was taking a few lumps on account of Hank's behavior.

But, save for a little blood in the urine, he was no worse for the wear.

I'm sorry you had to meet Hank, Miss Waters. I thought I was bad. That guy has some serious problems.

He did save our lives. Anyway, Hank had a pretty good idea.

He thinks that maybe-- Oh, and you're gonna listen to Hank? Come on! Look what he did to me. I mean, what are you thinkin'?

He's out of control, this guy. You know what I think we should do?

I think we should find another department and tell them the whole story. Not smart, Charlie. We don't know how far Dickie's reach goes.

Well, then, you know what? I think it's time to call the best damn law enforcement agency in the country:

the Rhode Island State Troopers! Do you really think the feds don't have some guy up there right now bugging calls?

They'd be on us in ten minutes. And they're the ones that almost got me killed in the first place.

Okay. What was the genius's big plan? He thinks that we should find a cabin and hide out for a while.

Oh, yeah? What about water? What about food? He already got supplies. They're in the trunk.

These are the supplies? Mm-hmm.

Well, he had a plan, all right. (sucking sound) That's it? That's all he got?

Oh, no, there's more. A rope, a shovel,

bag of lime and some lawn darts.

This is Christine DiCarlo reporting live from Clinton County, New York, where the manhunt continues for crazed Rhode Island State Trooper, Charlie Baileygates.

...responsible for the shooting death of an E.P.A. agent... and the kidnapping of one Irene P. Waters. That's impossible!

My daddy ain't killed nobody, and he sure as hell ain't kidnapped no skinny-ass b*tch! Your dad's sick, mentally. He's had some sort of breakdown. That's what we understand.

The important thing is we find him, so nobody else gets hurt, himself included. Come on, man, nobody's gonna get hurt.

Hell, yeah. Our daddy wouldn't hurt a mamma jamma fly, man. No, he goes after bigger game.

We just got a report he put six bullets into a prize cow's head. Poor thing's lucky to be alive.

Okay, look, let's say he does have a problem-- which he don't. He's been taking pills to get rid of it, anyway. He left his pills in the hotel.

Damn. That's where he left his sanity. I've seen it firsthand. The guy's nuttier than squirrel turds.

L-L-Look. One thing I don't understand, Lieutenant.

If my daddy's such a dangerous man, why'd you go by yourself, huh? Yeah, who are you, Sergeant York, tryin' to take on the Germans your damn self?

Your father's a police officer, and he asked me to come alone. How was I to know he's a nutcase?

Man, our daddy ain't no nutcase. He may have... advanced delusionary schizophrenia with involuntary narcissistic rage,

but he is a very gentle person! ♪♪ (punk rock music on radio) ♪♪♪

(radio off) Whoa, whoa, whoa, what's the fuss? Tell me what's happening.

Stay away from me, Hank! I know what you had planned, okay? I saw your shovel and the lime.

Shovel and lime? (chuckles)

(laughing) (sighs) Thank you.

I haven't laughed like that in a long time. What's so funny? We're drivin' a hot carriage. So?

That stuff belongs to the bad cop. You think he was gonna take our dead bodies down to the station?


Irene decided they should go back to Rhode Island, but Hank had an idea first.

Are you sure about this? Are you kiddin'? Every oinker east of the Mississippi will be looking for this sled.

Hey! Yes? You didn't happen to pick up a wallet on the dash, did ya?

You're kidding, right? (exhales)

So, what's your tale, Mother Goose? Where you from? Oh, all over.

Omnipresence. I like that in a woman. I'm originally from Texas. Middle-class neighborhood.

But after high school, I moved to New York, 'cause I had this thing-- Let me guess. Everybody in town told you you were easy on the eyes,

so you decided to become a supermodel. When you got to the Big Apple, they treated you like the worm. So you packed on a few pounds and started calling yourself an actress.

Uh, no. Shh! Unfortunately, you can't get far without talent, and after a while the only bright lights you saw were the ones...

that hit you in the face when you opened the fridge. That's when you got a boob job, started hanging around on the Upper East Side,

looking for a rich, old man with a bum ticker... and waved a white flag in the face of your own self-loathing.

How's my aim? I never went to New York City. I went upstate to Cornell. And then I got my master's in turf management at U-Mass.

And then I became a golf course superintendent. And these, believe it or not, are all mine.

I noticed you conveniently left out your eating disorder. -I don't have an eating disorder. -Whatever you say, slim.

Whoa! Hands off, Hank. ♪ (calliope music plays) ♪

Hey! Mom! (growling) That's real nice, Hank. Way to keep a low profile.

It's survival at this point. Hey, I know how to score some dough. Punch me.

-What? -Punch me in the face. Why? I'll flag the big cheese, tell him I got rolled in the parking lot.

He'll hush me up with a couple of Benjamins. They don't need that kind of ink on Sugar Mountain. Come on, rip my head off.

That's really lame, Hank. Well, you have a better idea? Come on. It's not gonna work. Yes, it is gonna work, but you gotta rock me.

Don't give me one of those girly "I don't wanna break a fingernail" love taps. This guy's gotta look at my face and just--

(grunting, yelling) MALE NARRATOR: Well, the kick in the chops didn't work out as planned,

and it just left Charlie a little more roughed up. How's the nose feelin'? Listen to it.

(nose whistling) I'm really sorry, Charlie. I'll get over it.

I mean, you should be furious. I just drop-kicked you right in the face. Hey, it happens. (nose continues to whistle)

(grunts) You got a great way of looking at life, Charlie. You know that? That's a gift.

Yeah, I don't know if my shrinks would agree. They think that's my problem. What? Oh, that I purposely distort my perceptions...

to make my reality more palatable. (nose whistling) Oh, like you only hear what you wanna hear?

Thanks. I like to keep it short, especially in the summer.

How come I couldn't have ended up with an easygoing guy like you, Charlie, huh?

Sometimes I think there's something about my look that just attracts idiots. That's crazy. You're a very special girl, Irene. Look at you.

You're just so down to earth. I mean, look at your hair. It's like you don't give a damn, you know?

And your skin's so natural. You just let it hang out, blemishes and all. You're not afraid of your flaws. You have squinty eyes,

and your face is all pursed up like you just sucked on a lemon, but you pull it off. (weak chuckle)

(train whistle blowing)

You thinking what I'm thinking? IRENE: Oh, no.

Oh, yeah. (neck cracking) (groaning) Come on.

But I don't know if I can! Yes, you can! Humans only use ten percent of their potential.

You gotta reach down for that little extra something. (panting, nose whistling) (panting)

There you go! Now you're gettin' it! I believe in you!

Don't you give up on me now!

Come on, Charlie! Go! Come on, jump off! Jump off! What?

What? Jump off the train!

Oh. (screams)

How's it hangin', fellas? Hank, I presume?

Did you miss me? Why don't you just send Charlie back out here? Things were finally becoming civilized. Listen, Pocahontas.

Unless you put your ear to the ground, you'll never hear the buffalo coming. Look, I don't know what that means, okay? It means either he's gotta make up a battle plan,

or old Hank's gonna have to take over Fort Charlie for good. Did you just refer to yourself in the fourth person?

Holy Jesus in heaven! It's a giant Q-Tip. Hank. What? I'm joking with the guy.

No, thank you. We've ordered. (nose whistling)

That's it. Hey, hey, hey. Hold on there. Did I miss something? Don't give me that! What you just did to that kid was terrible.

Didn't you see the look on his face?

Looked a little pale, that's all. He was hurt and offended.

Well, I disagree. But why speculate? Hey, milky, vámonos. Hey, no! No, no, no.

Hank, no. Come on, Brer Rabbit. Hop down the bunny trail. Come on. Epa, epa, ándale.

Listen, uh, were you offended in any way by our social interaction here?

Y-Yeah. Actually, I was. What was it, the Q-Tip thing?

Wow. I never get tired of hearing that. (chuckles)

Hey. Oh, hey. I'm looking for my friends. A pretty little blonde and a tall guy with a buzz cut.

Cabin "E." Thanks a lot.

Shh. Don't make a sound. I don't know anything, and that's exactly what I told the police.

I swear. Shut up, Irene! You just listen to me. Maybe we can work something out. (screams) (glass breaks)

Time to face the music, Mozart. And a-one, and a-two, and--



(sighs) Warden, I want my own cell.

Oh, great, you again. -What tree did this sap ooze out of? -It's Dickie.

It's the guy who got me into all this crap! Yeah. Oh, your golf buddy? I hope he doesn't mind if I play through. Knock it off, Hank.

Okay, turn around. I'll play the back nine. Stop it! Come on, he couldn't have chewed up the greens that badly.

Get away from me! Whoa. He hasn't played the course in a long time, okay? It was Charlie who was putting.

Charlie? Yeah, that's right. He might not be long off the tee, but he's got a pretty good up and down game.

What the hell is that supp-- Can we just speak English for a second here? I never wanted to sleep with you, Hank, okay? You tricked me.

Yeah, that's right. I did trick you. It was deceitful. It was disgusting and despicable. But just this once, try to look at it from my side.

-I was horny. -Oh, God. You are such a jerk!

Come on. Don't be mad. (grunts)

Now, I warned you about that, buddy. Warned me about what?

Charlie? Uh-huh. Providence, Rhode Island. Ten-minute stop.

Did you-- What? What the hell is going on here? Hank was coming on to me again.

Hank? Damn it. I am so sick of that guy.

Okay, Hank, come on out here. Let's settle this the old-fashioned way. Come on! I may not be tough, but, damn it, I can get good and mad!

Come on! Stop it, man. You're scaring me. What's the matter with you? Let's get off. Let's get off before he wakes up. Come on.

-I'm not through with you, buster. I'm not through with you! -Come on. (train whistle blows)

What's the matter, Hank? Afraid to pick on someone your own size? (screams, groans)

Are you okay? What happened? That was dirty.

All right. Come on. Where are you? -Where are you? -HANK: Here I am. CHARLIE: Huh? Oh, you bastard.

(grunting) Stop it, you're gonna kill him! -(banging continues) -CHARLIE (grunting): He's choking me!

You're choking me. HANK: Ow, ow, ow, ow. Charlie, don't break it. Don't break it.

-Get on your knees and beg me. -Up yours. I beg-- -(cracking) -Ah! (slap)

On your feet, Opie. We're gonna have some fun. -CHARLIE: Irene. -(onlookers screaming)

Irene. HANK:
Hi, ladies. My name is Charlie Baileygates. Wanna see my weasel?

(screaming) (panting) Free hot dogs here. All you can eat.

Get your foot-long and a bag of nuts. CHARLIE: No, don't listen to him! It's not me. It's Hank.

Hey! (groans) Come back here, Hank. I'm not through with you!

-(yelling) -(Hank laughs, groans)

Had enough? -HANK: Up yours.

Stop it, you two! Stop it! (tires screeching)

It's Gerke! Come on! -CHARLIE: All right, Hank, truce. -HANK: For now. (yelling)

(gun c*cks) MAN:
Watch out! He's got a gun! (gunshot)

I'll follow the girl. You get Baileygates.

Police officer! Everybody down! Get down! (gunshot)

Ow! Get out of the way.

(panting) Hank, we're shot. HANK: Come on, you. It's just a flesh wound. Look. (screaming)

Look, there's keys in the car. CHARLIE: No, I can't go on. (panting heavily)

I think-- (groaning) I think I'm gonna faint.

(people screaming)

Do you mean to say I gotta carry your sorry ass? All right.

Come on, Rip Van Wussy.

Jeez, you're heavy.

Now, get in there.

Arrivederci, deadwood. -CHARLIE: No!

What the hell are you still doing here? CHARLIE: You can't just throw me away, Hank. We're in this together.

Pritchard. Cover the other end. I want Charlie arrested on sight.

(punch lands, thud)

Hey, Irene. You just keep walking now.

(tires squealing) (horn honking)

Irene? Irene?

Hold it, Baileygates. You're coming with me. Not now, Finneran. Yes, now!

That was me. -HANK: Yeah, big deal. The guy's got a glass jaw. -CHARLIE: Shut up, Hank! You know, you're so-- IRENE: Hank!

Hey, let her go! -HANK: She asked for me, ass. -CHARLIE: Big deal.

Dickie, you know I don't know anything. Shut up, Irene. It's too late.

(gunshot) (screaming)

Hank! Hank!

No way. DICKIE: Come on. (yelling)

-(bridge creaking) -CHARLIE: Oh, no, water. HANK: Yeah, she's pretty much screwed. Come on, I'll buy you a beer.

No, we're doing this. (grunting) Hank.

Hank, what are you doing? Give me the leg. Whoa! Hank, hurry! (creaking)

This is my body! Do you understand that? I'm calling the shots from now on, Hank.

I don't need you to fight my battles for me. If you can back down from something this important, you're nothing at all.

You're nothing at all! (cracking)

(chuckling) I got my leg back. Oh, no. Hank! I'm coming, Irene.

(yells) Hank! No!

It's okay, Irene. Hank's gone. It's me, Charlie.

Charlie? Uh, maybe you should go back and get help. No, I can handle it.

I'm warning you, pal. You're gonna get hurt. (creaking) Be careful, Charlie.

Just do what he says, Charlie. Back off, back off! Just turn around. Now! Take it easy, Dickie.

Take it easy. (creaking) There's nowhere to go. Come on, Dickie.

Give me the gun. Come on. Come on.

That's it. Nice and easy. (screaming)

(screaming) Where's my thumb?

That's kidnapping and assault. You know that, don't you? Well, why stop there? No! (lawn dart whizzes, thuds) (grunts)

Oh, God. -Whitey! -Rock 'n' roll!

Oh, oh. (screaming) (thuds)

Irene? Irene!


Irene! I--

Irene, Irene. What? What? Oh, my God. Ow. (helicopter approaching)

(moaning, grunting)

Keep going. Bring it down, bring it down. -Look at that. -We're coming, Daddy. We're coming, man.

It's my kids!

Come on, Daddy! Grab ahold of that mamma jamma, man! ♪♪ (hip hop music) ♪♪♪

♪♪ I always dance with a lady gets me there every time ♪♪ ♪♪ On the road to recovery I think we missed the damn sign ♪♪♪

So, how's my thumb looking, Doc? I'll let you know when I find it.

Irene, Charlie. Hey. This is Agent Steve Parfitt, F.B.I. Old friend. Nice to see you.

You must be awfully proud of these maniacs. Oh, I am.

Yeah, you know, we're proud of this mutton head too. Oh. (chuckling) It's good to see you're safe, Dad. I'll tell you that. Yeah.

The colonel informed them that all the guilty parties... had been apprehended.

Gerke was arraigned at a Providence hospital, and Agent Boshane had been arrested at the train station in New London.

But Charlie Baileygates had other things on his mind. Charlie, nicely done. Thanks, Sea Bass.

Hey, Whitey. Listen, I just wanted to tell you that I really appreciate everything you did for me.

I owe you a huge one. And I'm truly sorry that you had to kill again.

It must be really messing with your head. -I never killed anyone before. -What?

Look, you were an admitted schizo who was wanted for murder and you were laying in bed next to me gabbin' like a 16-year-old girl on the telephone.

You freaked me out, man. But what about your family? How did they die?

I never said they were dead. I said they were gone. They moved to Phoenix, the bastards.

Look at me. I wouldn't last two minutes out in the desert. Hey, your bandage is wet.

Oh, yeah? Well, maybe it's time to come off. I'm surprised it's held on this long.

Hey, that's not so bad. Hey, Daddy. We just wanted to say that you-- sweet Jesus.

Look, Daddy got a gosh damn butthole on his face. (all laughing) Oh, boy. Here we go.

He sure is a Spartacus-lookin' mamma jamma. Hey, Daddy, man. Look, man. Now you can blow your nose and wipe your ass at the same damn time.

You know what I'm saying?

So. So. How did your meeting with the shrink go?

Oh, wonderful. A clean bill of health. Yeah? Just another well-rounded individual.

That's great, Charlie. I'm really happy for you. Thank you.

Well, uh, I hope if you're ever, you know, around here,

you'll, uh, come and visit us. Yeah. Little Rhodie.

Biggest little state in the union. Yeah.

Yeah. Oh, let me get that for you. Thanks.

-Hey, Irene. -Yeah? Maybe I could come visit you sometime soon.

Promise? You bet.

And that's the word of a Rhode Island State Trooper, ma'am.
