Mr. Evans?

Mr. Evans?

Mr. Evans, I'm Dr. Reese.

You're waking up in

Valley Memorial Health Center.

Hmm, Dawn.

Where... Where is Dawn?

I'm sorry to wake you,

but there's a police officer


who needs to ask you

some important questions.


Where's my wife?

I'm going to miss you.

Not as much

as you'll miss me.

No, of course not.

You're the sun, I'm...

I'm but a moon,

a mere satellite.




Not Sputnik.

Heh. Actually, true story,

a girl I knew once told me

that I had a celestial body.

Hmm, I don't really think

she used that word.

No, no, no. She did.

I don't forget a compliment.

I just wish I could remember

who she was.

I wish I could be with you.

I'm here now.

I'm sorry you drove all the way

out here to sign your contract.

I just found out

this morning.

I knew when you knew.

These things happen, Will.

One investor drops out,

they drum up another one.

It's bullshit

and it's bad due diligence.

Look, I know you've gone

through a long drought here,

but don't worry, you're the guy

I want for the job.

That's not the issue.

It's a financial matter,

as simple as that.

It's got nothing to do

with you or me.

How's Dawn?

Did she make the trip with you?

Are you heading back today?

I want the job

you said was mine.

You can't manage a site

if I don't have a site

to manage.

I don't care if it's

topping trees or mopping floors,

you can transfer me

when you get your financing.

Jesus, Will, I don't hire

for those kind of positions,

you know that.

So call in a favor,

make a deal.

I'll make some calls.

He can check my phone,

I didn't want him

to see the call.

No. He just knows

you hate him, Da...

Dad, can we not do this

right now?

There isn't gonna be

a foreclosure,

Will's working.

The bank says

that they'll work with us,

but that was

a few weeks ago,

and we just missed a payment


Well, you hear stories,

and I just...

I thought maybe you could offer

a guarantee,

just a name

and Will doesn't need to know.


it's just for two

or three months,

just a little gap,

and then

you can take your name off.

No, I haven't forgotten

that I still owe you.

You don't stop reminding me.

But this job is gonna help me

pay you back.

We're almost there.


This for me?

How did it go?

I'm in.

No hiccups?

Did you get a letter

for the bank?

I'll get it faxed

later today.

Hi. Did you get the photo?

Yeah, isn't it great?

I can totally see myself

getting back into it.

Dad said what?


No, he didn't have

to interview for the job.

No, they're starting him

right away.

Here's one. Hey!

What are they wearing?


I thought you were going past.

Quite a deep freeze,

we got going, huh?

Yeah, you aren't really

dressed for it.

Could we get in?

Where are you going?

Out of this.

Where are you guys going?

Home. Vancouver.

Yeah, Vancouver's perfect.

Us too. Thanks.

I gotta tell you,

I am so glad you guys stopped.

There's hardly anybody

out there,

and they keep on driving by.

Well, I'm Dawn and this is Will,

and we're going to Vancouver,


So are you guys from there?

No. We're visiting friends.

Oh, nice. Where at?


He's just out of prison,

I'm a prostitute.

Is that enough info?

Can we sleep now?

My name's Lee.

This is my sister Cheryl.

She thought she was gonna freeze

to death out there,

and she's quite tired so...


I mean, that's great.


Already got it.

I... I don't have cash,


Don't worry about it.

Just paying our way.


Hey, we should, uh...

I, uh, want to leave them.
