Mr. Radford, good morning.

Well, I know it isn't Grauman's

Chinese theater, but here we are.

Mr. Radford... this film has been part

of your life for almost 40 years.

It isn't going to be easy to let go of it.

I'm here to help you

every step of the way.

Patrick, start the movie now.

- Right away Dr. Cashin.

- Bill,

I understand you're

allowing Radford to see his film.

Uh, yes I am.

Are you sure that's wise?

His obsessions have only grown

during his confinement here.

Showing the film might just

be the breakthrough he needs.

Crazy bastard.

- Hey, can I have a hand?

- Sure.

Radford's film's like an infection.

It Taints his entire existence...

No offense Dave,

but you're almost as obsessed

with that filmas he is.

Well maybe you could delay

it so I could observe.

Look, he's already in the room.

I'd hate for him to be

transferred back at this point.

It would only rile him up.

Well, I'll get back as soon as I can and

then maybe you'll allow me to

observe your follow up session.

If you think it's absolutely

necessary doctor.

Wayne, your ride is here.

Good luck.





Oh my God!!


Rachael have you seen Kenny?

What's up?

The CO2 line was kinked again.

Ok, thanks but you really need

to get back up there.

It's almost midnight,

you have to be taking the tickets.

Sure, but it's not like there's

going to be a crowd.

Why don't we play something

good sometime?

I bet we could get a lot more

people to come...

if we had something they

actually heard of.

Well I totally agree with you,

but you know how Mr. Lambert is.

Yeah, Cheap.

Don't worry hon, Harley don't bite.

Not often anyway.

Yeah, how about after the movie

I take you on a ride around the block?

That's ok, thank you.

This toothpick give you a hard on?

Testosterone Babe!

It's a natural order of the universe.

Not Bad.

I'll take a large.

Sorry Timmy, I can't let you in.

Why not?

It's theater policy.

No one under 18 allowed without

a parent or guardian after 11pm.

You're not 18!

But I'm in charge.

No, you're not.

Rachel! Can you find Bridget?


Why aren't you at home?

Mrs. Kincade had to leave.

What was I supposed to do?

It's almost midnight.

You should have gone to bed.

I wasn't tired, so I thought I could come

see the movie and go home with you.

No, not this time. You'll get nightmares.

No, I won't.

Don't you remember what happened when

I let you watch Silence of the Lambs?

- I remember.

- Hey, come on.

Maybe next time little buddy.

You still cool?

Sure sis.

Kenny, I'll cover you here,

can you please take him home?

It's only 4 blocks Bridget, plus

what's he gonna do with my bike?

Ok, fine, but you need

to go straight home.

- Yeah...

- And text me as soon as

you get there so I know that you're ok.


Hey, little man.

I'm not little.

C'mon, that's not what I meant.

Okay so it looks like we're going

to need more milk duds.

Hey there.

Hi, what are you doing here?

Well, I figured that if you couldn't

come to me, I'd come to you.

I thought you had plans

with Mario tonight?

Yeah we did but you know

Samantha got off work early so

I convinced them

to come hang out here with us.

With us?

Josh I'm working, I cant sit and

watch a movie with you.

Sure you can.

Shouldn't you be taking tickets?

Let me manage for you tonight.

It'll give me a chance to prove myself.


Uh, I don't know.

You'll still be in the theater

if anything goes wrong.

Exactly. Give the kid a shot.

- I really shouldn't...

- C'mon.

So make sure that nothing...

...goes wrong.
