Help me!

Wait! Help!

( music playing on radio )

I don't know.

It's just not gonna be the same.

Trust me, it will be the same.

I'm going to miss everyone.

You saw everybody.

Sometimes it's necessary

to relocate.

Don't make it seem

like it's not your fault.

Out of every bad situation

comes something good.

Don't you agree?

You have a truly demented way

of looking at things.

If I didn't,

I don't think you'd be

so in love with me.

( Chuckles )

Don't flatter yourself.

I'm tired.

Let's stop somewhere

for the night.

( Pings )

Hey now.

Please don't tell me

you're here for directions.

I got 15 rooms,

all with your name on 'em.

Well, good news is,

I know exactly where I'm going.

The bad news is,

I only need one room.

Well, I'll take what I can get.

I just need a credit card.


Pretty, young-

- Just the way I like 'em.

- Yeah.

Well, that's an unusual name.


My father had a unforgiving commitment

to historical reference.

Oh. Well, let's just

get you fixed up, huh?

How does number 8

sound to you?

Infinity-- I like it.

TV anchorman:

...Jet fighters bombed a guerilla base,

killing at least 49 soldiers

and 13 civilians.

- Man:
There it is again.

- Anchor:
Up next, local law enforcement

and the FBI are scouring

the area north of Spokane

for any evidence that can lead them

to missing heiress Emma Ward.

From what we can tell,

the carving's about six months old.

It reads "Emma alive."

It's impossible to get

an accurate date,

but tree growth on that particular alder

indicate about a half a year,

probably done in the spring,

right around--

well, after her abduction.

- Clever girl.

- Anchor:
Joining us now in the studio

- is the former FBI investigator...

- You think?

...who has worked

many similar cases.

I don't think I would have

thought to do that.

What are the FBI agents

dealing with...

Now she has a chance.

- There's always a chance.

- FBI agent: much information...

(TV off)

But you know how these things

turn out.

Take off the towel.

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry for everything.

A man who lacks emotion

is sorry.

I don't lack emotion.

I just process it differently.

Must everything about you

be different?

I like normal.

I would change if I could,

but I can't.

I just can't.

Just tell me you don't love her

more than me.

I don't love her more than you.

I never did.

It was just different.

( Birds chirping )

( rock music playing )

- Burly man:
Put some muscle in it.

- ( grunts )


That's easy for you to say.

( Burly man chuckles )

You gotta be kidding.

Jack, can you do me a favor

and go open the gate?


Why? Because the gate

won't open.

( Chuckles )

I need you to open it, please.

- ( Jack sighs )

- Thank you.

( Music continues )

Trouble! Trouble!


( Sighs )

Home sweet home.

- Man:
Who are these guys?

- Woman:

Mind my lead.

Let me do the talking.

Talking? Don't you think

it's a little late for talking?

Hand me-- give me the phone.

- ( Woman screaming )

- Youth:
What's he doing?

- Youth:
What is he doing?

- Woman:
Flynn, stop it!


Flynn, what the f***?

What the f***, man?

Argh! Motherf***er.



- Flynn:
Damn it!

- Ethan:
Come on, man. Get up.

Your problem, Flynn,

is you don't f***ing think.

- He had a phone.

- You have a phone.

Should I shoot you?

Every cop in the county
