INT. THATCHER’S HOME - LAS VEGAS - EVENING

5:
25p.m. During the Summer Vacation:

MARIAN:

Is that you honey? I’m in the

nursery and I’m just putting Chris

to bed.

JOE:

What a day I’ve had! There is so

much of paperwork to be done and

the boss is always looking for new

ideas every damn second and I’m

trying my best to do what he wants

however the only problem is the

economy is so lousy and people

aren’t buying our products. Well,

anyway, that’s life in the steel

industry, so what’s going on here?

Is Chris taking a nap, Marian?

MARIAN:

Yes. (pause) Joe, it’s a real

problem looking after Chris. I take

him everyday to work with me and he

does not give me any trouble, but I

am always worried that he might

hurt himself. There are so many

ways a child can hurt himself in a

beauty salon, so I really think

that we should advertise in the

newspaper for a babysitter.

JOE:

An excellent idea sweetheart, it’ll

take a load off your mind and mine

too, okay?

MARIAN:

Okay.

CUT TO:

INT. JACK HINCKLEY’S HOME - EVENING

Tuesday, 6:
00pm: JACK, 17, is listening to the wonderful oldies music on his CD System and is singing along with the tunes. His parents come home. He switches off the CD player and goes down.

JACK:

(to parents)

Hi Mom, Dad. I’ve finished my

chores for the day. I’ve cleaned

the yard, mopped the floors,

vacuumed the house, cleaned the

garage, cleaned the bathrooms,

scrubbed the tubs and watered the

plants. He smiles at them.

TOM HINCKLEY:

That’s a good boy Jack. But, there

is still one thing your mom and I

would like you to do.

JACK:

What’s that?

TOM:

We want you to get a job. You are

going to be 18 very soon and it’s

high time that you start to earn

for yourself, isn’t it?

JANE HINCKLEY:

It’s not that we are forcing this

as a burden on you Jack, not at all

and we want you to be successful in

life and we want the best for you.

JACK:

Mom, Dad, I really appreciate what

both of you are saying to me and I

will succeed in life and I will get

a job, I promise. He starts looking

at job prospects in the newspaper

and sees Marian, 33, and Joe

Thatcher’s ad in it regarding a

babysitter and tells his mom and

dad that he has found a job and is

going to try to get it.

JACK:

Mom, Dad, I think I’ve got it. I’m

going to see what luck holds in

store for me, alright.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
3.

TOM:

Have you found a job?

JACK:

Yes. Bye mom, bye dad. He gives mom

a kiss and dad a hug and goes to

the Thatcher’s home.

CUT TO:

INT. THE THATCHER’S HOME - EVENING

Tuesday 6:
30 p.m. Jack arrives and catches a glimpse of

MARIAN in the window, Jack has an immediate crush on her.

She does not see him. He RINGS the doorbell and JOE,35,

opens the door.

JACK:

Hi there! I’ve come in response to

your ad in the papers about a

babysitter, who is to look after a

four year old child, is that right?

JOE:

Oh yes. Please come in.

JACK:

Thank you.

JOE:

Have you worked anywhere before?

JACK:

Not really. I just graduated from

high school and my parents were

after me to get a job somewhere,

so, here I am.

JOE:

You do realize that we will only

hire someone with work experience

and especially someone who has

babysitting experience, don’t you?

JACK:

I do understand. Definitely, but I

can assure you that I am extremely

gentle with toddlers and I really

love children, I have a baby sister

and I take care of her all the time

when my parents are not at home.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
4.

JOE:

Okay, I guess you’re alright and

you seem like a fine young man to

me.

JACK:

Thank you very much sir. I am

extremely grateful to you and I

will take proper care of him.

JOE:

That’s all we want really. Marian

comes downstairs. Marian dear, I’d

like you to meet...uh, why, I don’t

know your name and we got carried

away as to whether you were in or

out. What is your name?

JACK:

Jack Hinckley, Sir.

JOE:

(to Marian) Great, now I can

introduce you two and Marian,

Jack is our babysitter; is

that alright?

JACK:

It’s a pleasure to meet you Mrs.

Thatcher. Jack kisses Marian’s

hand.

MARIAN:

Hello Jack. Are you in the habit of

kissing every woman’s hand that you

come across?

JACK:

Well, not every woman Mrs.

Thatcher, only pretty women, not

that I mean anything by that

remark, really.

MARIAN:

Oh don’t worry about it. That was a

tough question I asked you anyway,

(Pause) although I have a feeling

that you will be a good babysitter.

JOE:

Now then, we will pay you $5

hourly. Marian works from 10am to

4:
30pm and she gets home at 5pm.

(MORE)

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
5.

JOE (cont’d)

It’s a total of 7 hrs and that will

be $35 altogether and I get home at

about 5:
25pm.

JACK:

So, what you are saying Mr.

Thatcher, obviously, is that my pay

is for 7 hours, right?

JOE:

That’s right. It’s not a bad

investment for a day, eh, and this

will be probably three days a week.

Hearing this Jack is a little

surprised. I know it might seem

strange to you that if both of us

are at work for a few hours

everyday, why we don’t put our son

in a child day care center, it’s

just that we don’t feel comfortable

with the idea, that’s all. We are

really nervous parents, you know.

JACK:

Well sir, I can understand that,

but why hire a babysitter then, I

mean, couldn’t a parent also feel

nervous with a babysitter (a

stranger) in the house especially

with a four year old boy to take

care of?

JOE:

Well, with another person, we might

be a little nervous and many

teenagers had come for the position

but we found them all unqualified

disasters. They all seemed weird.

(Jack laughs) But you, I think we

can trust you. I think you will do

a great job.

JACK:

I will Sir, absolutely. I’ll treat

him the same way I treat my baby

sister. I’ll give him lots of

kindness and attend to his every

need.

MARIAN:

Splendid! Well, why don’t we show

Chris to Jack?

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
6.

JOE:

Of course; Jack this way. They go

upstairs to the nursery where

Chris, 4, is taking a nap. Jack

tries to caress Chris’s hair.

MARIAN:

Shh..., don’t wake him up, Jack. We

just wanted you to see him.

JACK:

(in a whisper) Of course, how

stupid of me! He’s so

adorable, I couldn’t help

myself and I’m not that

gullible. I know you probably

wanted me to have a look at

him and I think the two of us

will get along just fine,

alright. They leave the

nursery.

JOE:

So it’s settled. You’ll start

tomorrow at 10. We’ll be here till

you get here and it doesn’t matter

if we are late by a few minutes

because our superiors understand,

okay.

JACK:

Right, well you probably expect me

to come at 9:
40 am then and I have

no intention of making you folks

late to work and I don’t mind my

pay beginning at 10 am, if it’s

alright with both of you, is it

alright?

JOE:

It’s alright, thank you.

JACK:

Not at all and thank you both for

giving me my first job, I

appreciate it.

MARIAN:

It’s our pleasure. You are a good

kid, I can see that.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
7.

JOE:

Yes and very considerate too.

JACK:

Well, thank you again and see you

tomorrow. Bye now. JOE and MARIAN

Bye.

CUT TO:

INT. THE THATCHER’S HOME - DAY

Jack Hinckley comes to the house and finds the door

unlocked. He arrives punctually at 9:40am on Wednesday and

KNOCKS on the door.

JACK:

Hello, is anybody at home?

JOE:

Yes, we’re just leaving, come on

in.

MARIAN:

Hi Jack. Chris’s food is in the

fridge. I’ve labeled it baby food,

the microwave is there. All you

have to do is heat it and give it

to him at 12:
30p.m, alright bye.

JACK:

Bye folks and don’t worry about a

thing because big Jack will take

care of everything. They smile and

leave and little CHRIS comes out of

the nursery.

JACK:

Hello Chris, do you know who I am?

CHRIS:

Yes, my mommy told me that a friend

will be coming to spend the day and

play with me, so what’s your name?

JACK:

You are absolutely right. May I

tell you that you are the cutest,

smartest, bravest and the most

mature 4 yr old boy I have met in

my whole life although I only know

one girl who is your age and she

JACK (cont’d)

happens to be my sister. Oh, by the

way my name is Jack. Let’s play.

CHRIS:

Okay. Time passes and Marian comes

home at 5p.m.... She sees Jack

playing with Chris.

MARIAN:

Hello Jack. Hi sweetie, mommy

missed you so much. Jack, it’s

really wonderful to see that the

two of you are getting along and

come along Chris, it’s time for

your evening nap, so let’s go to

the nursery. She goes up to put

Chris to bed. After putting him to

bed she comes down.

MARIAN:

Did you give him the food at the

proper time?

JACK:

Yes, Mrs. Thatcher.

MARIAN:

Good. Jack tomorrow is my off day.

I get Thursdays off. So, we’ll call

you when we need you again and here

is your $35, good job!

JACK:

Thanks. But, do you mind if I come

tomorrow anyway? I really like

Chris a lot Marian, please?

MARIAN:

Sure, why not. What about your

sister though, doesn’t she need

someone to look after her Jack,

what do you say?

JACK:

Oh! She’s very well attended too.

You see, we have a part-time maid

and tomorrow my parents are going

out of town for about two weeks and

they are taking my baby sister

Catherine, with them.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
9.

MARIAN:

Wow, you’re going to be all alone

then?

JACK:

Yes. Thank you very much Mrs.

Thatcher.

MARIAN:

Oh, don’t be so formal and you may

call me Marian, I won’t mind Jack.

JACK:

Yes Mrs. Thatcher, I mean Marian.

May I call Mr. Thatcher, Joe?

MARIAN:

Sure. He won’t mind either.

JACK:

Well, I better go home now and say

hello to Joe for me, okay?

MARIAN:

I will.

JACK:

Well, so long. See you tomorrow.

MARIAN:

Goodbye Jack, take care.

CUT TO:

INT. THE THATCHER’S HOME - DAY

Hinckley comes on Thursday to the Thatcher’s home.

JACK:

Hello Marian.

MARIAN:

Hi Jack. Did you have a good

night’s sleep?

JACK:

I slept very comfortably, thank

you. How about you?

MARIAN:

I slept peacefully too. Jack sees

Chris playing with his toys.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
10.

JACK:

There’s my little Prince of Wales

and how are you doing today?

CHRIS:

Mommy bought some new toys for me.

JACK:

Yes, I can see that. They are

really very nice. (to Marian) Is

Joe working today?

MARIAN:

Yes he is. Joe gets Mondays off.

JACK:

I see.

MARIAN:

Well, make yourself at home. I have

to go shopping. I won’t be too

long. It’ll be about half an hour.

JACK:

May I come along too?

MARIAN:

If you’d like, but I thought you

wanted to play with Chris, don’t

you?

JACK:

Well, I do but don’t you need any

help with the groceries?

MARIAN:

I do have a lot of things to buy. I

guess I could use you.

JACK:

Splendid!

MARIAN:

Come along Chris, we are going

shopping.

JACK:

Marian, I’ve known you for four

days now, well, three and a quarter

days to be exact and I still don’t

know where you work at.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
11.

MARIAN:

(laughs) Why Jack, you are

quite a practical,

mathematical man; you don’t

have to be that exact. After

all, it is the fourth day.

Anyway, I work at the "Women’s

Beauty Salon" and it’s on

Dopkins Avenue.

JACK:

Oh yes, now I remember. I’ve passed

through Dopkins Avenue a number of

times and I’ve seen the beauty

salon. It looks to be quite an

elegant beauty salon, so do you get

lots of customers or you don’t get

too many?

MARIAN:

Yes. Even though there is a

recession, women are always trying

to look good and pay good money to

look it and we in return give them

the styles they want.

JACK:

Good. Where does Joe work at?

MARIAN:

Joe works as an executive in a

steel factory.

JACK:

Is that the name?

MARIAN:

No. I think you are going to laugh

when you hear the name of it.

JACK:

What is its name?

MARIAN:

Rock Hard Industry!

JACK:

(he laughs) That’s very close

to my house. I live at 2250,

Westside Lane, Las Vegas,

Nevada, 89117. When I first

saw it, I couldn’t believe

that anybody could think of a

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
12.

name like Rock Hard Industry.

It does make sense if you

scrutinize it carefully but it

wouldn’t hurt to give it a

decent name, Rock Hard, huh!

Oh boy, isn’t life bizarre at

times?

MARIAN:

Yes, although it is doing really

well. It is making a profit of

nearly $100 million annually and it

is the leading steel factory of

today.

JACK:

Wow! Consumers must be really happy

with their products.

MARIAN:

Oh, they are.

IN THE CAR:

Jack stares at Marian’s legs and they reach the supermarket.

JACK:

So, what are we getting?

MARIAN:

(taking out her grocery list)

Well, let’s see; cheese, milk,

chicken, potatoes, peas,

beans, spinach, carrots,

fruits and baby food, that’s

it.

JACK:

That sounds great. While getting

the cheese, Marian drops it. Jack

picks it up for her and while

giving it to her; he stares into

her blue eyes with passion.

MARIAN:

Thank you Jack; is something wrong?

Or were you staring at me

because...

JACK:

I was staring at you because I have

this really bad habit of staring at

pretty women, if you don’t mind me

saying that, Marian.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
13.

MARIAN:

No, you told me that once before,

when you kissed my hand, remember?

JACK:

Well, don’t pay attention to it. I

didn’t mean anything by the stare,

I promise, okay.

MARIAN:

That’s okay, I understand. I’m not

going to scold you or ground you or

assume any motherly responsibility.

You are big enough to know what you

are supposed to do and what you are

not supposed to do. Learn from your

mistakes and don’t make them again,

I hope I haven’t hurt your feelings

in any way, have I?

JACK:

Oh no, no, that was extremely

educational and thank you for

telling me this. They leave the

Supermarket. At this point Marian

is a little confused, not knowing

what to believe, however, Jack has

fallen deeply in love with Marian

and is obsessed with her.

CUT TO:

EXT. THE THATCHER’S HOME - DAY

They reach home.

JACK:

Well, Marian I just remembered I

have to go to a party at my

friend’s house, it’s his graduation

party.

MARIAN:

Oh that’s fine and I’m going to be

here the rest of the day, okay.

JACK:

Right, I know and I guess you need

me tomorrow, well do you?

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
14.

MARIAN:

Yeah.

JACK:

Great! I’ll be here at 9:40am and

say hello to Joe from me, please.

MARIAN:

I will, see you. After Jack leaves,

Joe comes home.

JOE:

Hi honey, I’m home.

MARIAN:

(they kiss)

Hi. How was your day?

JOE:

Oh excellent. The boss gave me a

raise. He said I was working really

hard and making a profit for the

company and I deserve it.

MARIAN:

Why honey, I’m so proud of you.

That’s wonderful.

JOE:

So, what did you do today?

MARIAN:

Oh nothing much, just looking after

Chris, then Jack came.

JOE:

(he is surprised). Jack came

today. I figured since today

was your off day, you would

have told him not to come.

MARIAN:

Well, yesterday I did tell him, but

he insisted on coming and he said

he just wanted to spend some time

with Chris.

JOE:

Hmm, I see. How much time did he

spend with Chris?

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
15.

MARIAN:

About twenty five minutes.

JOE:

Twenty five minutes, that’s it?

MARIAN:

Well, I was going shopping and I

was obviously taking Chris along

and Jack decided to come along too

and I said alright and then when we

returned, he told me suddenly that

he had to go to his friend’s

graduation party, which was a

little strange.

JOE:

If he did have to go then why did

he come in the first place?

MARIAN:

He forgot.

JOE:

Kids! Yes, they do the strangest

things.

MARIAN:

I think he might have a crush on

me.

JOE:

Why do you think that?

MARIAN:

I don’t know, just the way he

looked at me in the Supermarket; he

told me it was just a stare and

said that at times he can’t keep

his eyes off pretty women, I did

not know what to do.

JOE:

Well, in a way it’s understandable

if he does.

MARIAN:

He’s really very nice to Chris.

JOE:

Oh I know he is. Well, just oblige

him. If he tries to cross the line

at any time, explain the situation

(MORE)

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
16.

JOE (cont’d)

to him. He’s a real smart guy,

he’ll understand.

MARIAN:

Yes, he is smart. I don’t think

there’s any need to because I told

him what was necessary.

JOE:

Good.

MARIAN:

Do you have any doubts about him

Joe?

JOE:

No. I was just puzzled as to why he

came but not any more and I’ve done

a lot of crazy things myself as a

teenager, a lot crazier than Jack,

in fact, come to think of it, I

don’t think Jack’s done anything

crazy. He obviously forgot about

his friend’s graduation party and

he likes Chris, so he came by,

that’s all. The bit about the crush

Marian, well, that happens, but it

wears off like that.

MARIAN:

I didn’t really say it was a crush.

I said I think it is.

JOE:

Never mind. Everything’s okay.

MARIAN:

I guess so.

JOE:

Well, it’s getting pretty late,

let’s hit the sack.

MARIAN:

Yes. During this conversation,

Chris has fallen asleep on the

sofa. Joe and Marian take him to

the nursery.

CUT TO:

17.

EXT. / INT. THE THATCHER’S HOME - DAY

Hinckley comes on Friday at 9:40 am, he comes by bus. Jack

sees Marian waiting outside, they wave at each other and

then Marian leaves and Joe has already left for work, Chris

is in the house.

JACK:

Hello Chris, my boy.

CHRIS:

Hello Jack.

JACK:

What kind of games shall we play

today?

CHRIS:

Let’s play the one in which you

pretend to be a horse and I sit on

top of you, is that right?

JACK:

Right, you are the jockey and I am

the horse. Hop on! Chris sits on

Jack and they go around the house.

Here we go, wee.

CHRIS:

This is fun.

JACK:

I’m glad you like it. Let’s play

another one.

CHRIS:

Okay.

JACK:

How about hide and seek?

CHRIS:

Yes lets, I like hide and seek.

JACK:

Okay, I’ll count to twenty and you

hide anywhere in the house, does

that sound good?

CHRIS:

Yes.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
18.

JACK:

Go on hide. Chris hides in the

closet while Jack starts counting.

One, two, three, four, five, six,

seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven,

twelve, thirteen, fourteen,

fifteen, sixteen, seventeen,

eighteen, nineteen and twenty, I’m

coming Chris. Where is Chris? Fee

fi fo fum, I smell a little human

boy under the sofa; got you. He

looks under the sofa but Chris is

not there. Fee fi fo fum, I still

smell a little human boy in his

room upstairs, I’m coming. He goes

up but Chris isn’t there. Damn it,

ah, fee fi fo fum, I now smell the

boy in the closet and a-ha, I have

got you this time sweetie, do you

surrender?

CHRIS:

Not fair, you cheated.

JACK:

Honest to God, I did not peek and

let’s play another game, is that

okay?

CHRIS:

Okay. Soon time flies and the clock

strikes 5 pm. Marian comes home.

MARIAN:

Hello sweetie, how have you been?

She gives him a hug and some

kisses.

CHRIS:

Okay. Jack and I played a lot of

games.

MARIAN:

Good. Did you enjoy them?

CHRIS:

Yes.

MARIAN:

What kind of games did you play?

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
19.

CHRIS:

We played hide and seek, horsy,

ringa roses, Gingerbread man and

many other games.

MARIAN:

That’s very nice Jack, you really

kept him busy.

JACK:

Well, I tried to keep him occupied.

MARIAN:

Here’s your money.

JACK:

Thanks. I wonder if I should ask

you this or not.

MARIAN:

What’s on your mind?

JACK:

Well, what I was thinking, would

you like to go out for dinner with

me, Marian, if you don’t mind?

MARIAN:

I don’t think so Jack, I appreciate

the offer, but Joe will be coming

home soon and I need to get dinner

organized and Chris will be all

alone at home, Jack.

JACK:

Sure, I understand. (pause)

Although, I brought some cake,

homemade chicken, rice, lentil,

potatoes and vegetables and the

only thing Joe would have to do

would be to heat it; Joe usually

gets back by 5:
25pm and it’s 5:15pm

now besides ten minutes won’t hurt

and Chris always finds something to

do, you know.

MARIAN:

Why Jack, where did you learn to

cook like that?

JACK:

Oh, my parents taught me.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
20.

MARIAN:

Well, in that case why don’t we

wait for Joe and we’ll all have

dinner here, what do you say?

JACK:

(pause) I confess I like you a

lot Marian. You especially

have been so kind to me and to

show my appreciation to you I

thought dinner at a fancy

restaurant would be the way I

could. I will repay Joe in

another way, I promise, unless

you absolutely don’t want to I

won’t force you to but it’s

not like I’m trying to lead

you away from Joe, no Marian,

not at all and I mean it.

MARIAN:

Oh no, I never thought for a moment

you were trying to lead me away

from him, you just want to have

dinner with me alone, that’s all.

JACK:

Yes, without any kind of obscene

intention.

MARIAN:

I guess it’s alright.

JACK:

Thank you. Oh, it’s 5:20pm. Joe

will be arriving here at 5:25pm.

Maybe you can leave a note on the

door saying that we have gone for

dinner and we’ll be back. Do

mention in the note there’s nothing

to be puzzled about, Jack just

wanted to take me out for dinner on

a friendly impulse, we’ll be back

soon and Jack brought you food.

MARIAN:

He is going to think you did this

deliberately.

JACK:

I don’t see anything wrong in doing

it deliberately. Alright, I planned

to bring the food because I wanted

(MORE)

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
21.

JACK (cont’d)

to spend an evening with you, Joe

will understand, like you have

understood that I like you as a

friend and since you’re a woman I’m

a little bit attracted to you and

on a friendly impulse I am taking

you to dinner, there’s nothing

wrong with a dinner date, I mean

between friends.

MARIAN:

No, there’s nothing wrong but, I

still want to make sure that Joe is

here and tell him that you have

cooked food for him and explain to

him that I am not a bad wife for

not making his dinner because

that’s what he’s going to think,

I’ll also tell him that since you

have brought everything there was

really no need to make anything

extra, otherwise I would have and

the other thing is that I want to

make sure that Chris is taken care

of, that’s the most important

thing.

JACK:

Oh great! Joe is obviously going to

say no when he gets here, I’m sure.

MARIAN:

No, he won’t and like you said,

he’ll understand that you like me

and you want to take me out to

dinner with no obscene intention;

but tell me how you are going to

pay for the dinner at a fancy

restaurant, well how are you?

JACK:

I keep extra pocket money with me

and my parents give me a big

allowance, so there’s no problem at

all.

MARIAN:

You do have an answer for

everything, don’t you Jack? Joe

arrives home.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
22.

JOE:

Hello honey. Hi Jack.

MARIAN:

Hello darling. She gives him a

kiss.

JACK:

Hello Joe.

MARIAN:

Joe, Jack would like to take me to

dinner, do you have a problem with

that or you don’t?

JOE:

A problem! No, only if you promise

to bring her home at a reasonable

hour, no later than 10:30pm and

don’t start trying anything funny

with her, no problem and have fun.

JACK:

Thank you Joe, I never would have

believed it.

JOE:

Why not? I understand these things.

I was 17 once, you know.

MARIAN:

Thanks for understanding Joe. (she

hugs him) Oh, he’s not going to try

anything funny because I won’t let

him, absolutely not and that’s for

sure.

JOE:

There is one thing though, what

about my food and Chris’s, has it

been made?

MARIAN:

Chris’s food is in the fridge and

yours is in that plastic bag; Jack

made it, not that I...

JOE:

Honey, I understand no need to

explain.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
23.

MARIAN:

Alright darling, see you. Bye

Chris. Jack and I are going out for

dinner, but daddy’s here and mommy

will be back soon. Okay Chris, love

you. She kisses Chris

JACK:

Bye Joe. Thank you.

JOE:

Bye Jack.(they leave)

JACK:

Oh, there’s one other thing. My car

broke down, I came by bus.

MARIAN:

(she laughs)

Some date. The gentleman is

supposed to take the lady out Jack.

JACK:

I know, but these things happen.

MARIAN:

Never mind, we’ll take mine. Back

inside the house.

CHRIS:

Why has Jack taken mommy out for

dinner?

JOE:

Well, Jack is probably just trying

to show off the good money he made

and took your mother out, that’s

all, although I don’t think they

can go to a restaurant with only

$35 unless your mother pays the

balance, maybe Jack has extra

money. Well, they’ll be back soon

and don’t worry daddy’s here.

INT. RUPERT’S RESTAURANT - NIGHT

Friday

HOST:

Hello and welcome to Rupert’s.

JACK:

Hi, table for two please.

HOST:

One moment Sir! Yes sir, table

seven and the steward will show you

the way, alright?

STEWARD:

Here you are Sir.

JACK:

Thank you.

STEWARD:

Would you like to order now Sir?

JACK:

Uh! I think we’ll wait. We’ll call

you when we are ready.

STEWARD:

Very good Sir! Marian looks at the

prices.

MARIAN:

Jack are you absolutely sure that

you can pay for the dinner or I

would love to pay the balance, what

do you think?

JACK:

Not a chance. This is my treat.

Relax; I know how much it costs to

have dinner in these fancy

restaurants. My parents, like I

mentioned are not here and they

have left me a lot of money, so

don’t worry about it.

MARIAN:

Alright Jack. What do your parents

do?

JACK:

Well, my mom is a homemaker and my

dad is an attorney, working for the

"law-firm", "Reynolds Group" and

this firm deals in civil cases.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
25.

MARIAN:

Oh wow, I guess that answers the

question.

JACK:

Yes, so therefore they are always

going on these little escapades to

different places and I don’t go

because I love Vegas, those places

don’t interest me. I’ve been to

some of them, but Vegas is the

best. Oh yeah!

MARIAN:

Where did they go this time?

JACK:

They went to Lake Havasu City,

which is in Arizona.

MARIAN:

Oh! It must be hot there.

JACK:

They like the heat; but you’re

absolutely right, last year I had

gone there and only because we have

our relatives staying there; it was

unbearable, it was 104 degrees

Fahrenheit there just think about

it.

MARIAN:

104 degrees Fahrenheit, that’s

worse than murder.

JACK:

Yeah, no kidding! They went there

because our relatives invited us,

but I chose not to go.

MARIAN:

(pause)

Which college are you planning to

go to? Or are you planning to go?

JACK:

Definitely! I’m going to the

University of California, San

Diego.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
26.

MARIAN:

Great! When do classes begin?

JACK:

I’ve applied for the Spring

Quarter, so not for a while and so

I’m just enjoying life.

MARIAN:

I see.

STEWARD:

Is the gentleman ready to order

now?

JACK:

No, not quite and I’ll call you.

I’m sorry; we got into a long

conversation, you know.

STEWARD:

Sure sir, please take your time,

happens all the time, indeed.

JACK:

(he laughs)

This guy is a character. These

Englishmen are great, I mean

wonderful jokers, the lot, good

humor, that’s what I mean.

MARIAN:

Oh, you can also talk in a British

accent.

JACK:

Sure, most definitely.

MARIAN:

Forget the English; you have a good

sense of humor yourself.

JACK:

Thank you very much. You have made

my night.

MARIAN:

Have you ever considered working in

films?

JACK:

Yes, lots of times. But, dog-gone

it, the entertainment industry is

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
27.

JACK (cont’d)

so difficult to get into and I am

not that crazy to work in an

elegant restaurant like Rupert’s

and wait for an executive producer

to come, have dinner one day and

introduce myself to him and say

that I’m a good actor and please

give me a break. First of all, it

seldom happens or it never happens.

I would rather go to college and

study and hope to become a doctor.

MARIAN:

Wonderful! It’s really nice to see

kids of your age being focused on

academics; however you do have a

striking face, just like Tom

Cruise.

JACK:

I’m flattered and honored. Hey, Tom

and I go way back. We were friends

although we did have a ten to

fifteen year age gap but

nevertheless we were bosom buddies.

MARIAN:

You know something, you really are

good.

JACK:

Well, I’m a smooth talker. (to the

steward) Yes, the lady will have

the chicken soup to start with and

then the fried shrimp, mashed

potatoes, olives, fish, rice, beans

and I’ll have the same.

STEWARD:

(steward leaves)

Very good Sir!

MARIAN:

You just said that because I said

it.

JACK:

Oh no, I decided on the exact same

thing because the rest of the

dishes just seemed a little

flamboyant without any substance,

you know.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
28.

MARIAN:

I see. All that glitters is not

gold type of thing.

JACK:

Right, excuse me; I need to go to

the restroom.

MARIAN:

Certainly! Jack goes to the

restroom. He paces up and down and

is by this time, fatally obsessed

with Marian, he talks to himself.

JACK:

This is ridiculous. How do I tell

her? Should I just tell her right

away or should I bide my time, oh,

I want her so much. She is so

beautiful. When I gaze into those

blue eyes of hers, I am overcome

with such passion that I can’t

control it and I have to be with

her. Oh, this is killing me, I

don’t know what to do but I’m going

out there and whatever happens;

happens. Jack comes out and is

perspiring.

MARIAN:

Jack, what happened?

JACK:

Why, what’s wrong? Why are you

staring at me that way?

MARIAN:

Well, you’re perspiring a lot. Are

you alright?

JACK:

Oh yes. It was just pretty hot in

the rest room, that’s all.

MARIAN:

Well, come on and have a seat, your

food’s getting cold.

JACK:

Right! The conversation ends. After

some time, Jack starts talking.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
29.

JACK(CONT’D)

Marian, there’s something I’ve been

meaning to tell you but I don’t

really know how to say it.

MARIAN:

Why don’t you just say it?

JACK:

Marian, ever since I first saw you

through the window, I have been in

love with you.

MARIAN:

Wait a minute, here. What window?

How did you see me?

JACK:

Chris’s bedroom window; when I came

to your house to get the job, as I

was walking to the front door, I

caught a glimpse of you at the

window and became attracted to you

instantly.

MARIAN:

You were spying on me?

JACK:

I wasn’t spying; I just looked up

and saw you and look, it doesn’t

matter, because even when you

walked down those stairs I knew

that I was in love with you Marian

and that we were meant to be

together.

MARIAN:

Listen to me, Jack. It’s nothing

more than a crush, I know you like

and admire me and I like and admire

you very much. Don’t worry Jack,

it’ll wear off.

JACK:

It’s not going to wear off because

it’s not a crush, its love,

wonderful love in its purest form.

MARIAN:

Jack, you are smart. You understand

the difference between love and a

crush, for Pete’s sake Jack, I also

know. I mean, I can’t believe this;

this is Jack Hinckley, a smart,

handsome guy who is going to become

a doctor and is going to the

University of California, San

Diego, a world famous university in

order to reach that goal.

JACK:

Divorce him.

MARIAN:

Excuse me.

JACK:

You heard me, divorce him.

MARIAN:

Are you out of your mind? What the

hell has happened to you? Ever

since you came out of the restroom,

you have been acting strangely.

JACK:

I have been in love with you for

quite some time now; the restroom

did not change me in anyway.

MARIAN:

Oh boy. You need help, better see a

psychiatrist.

JACK:

I do not need help, I am perfectly

sane Marian. So, are you going to

divorce him or not?

MARIAN:

Absolutely not, I love him.

JACK:

I thought you liked me.

MARIAN:

I like you, yes indeed, I am still

saying you are smart, but come to

your senses child, please.

JACK:

Listen to me, are you saying that

you don’t want to live with me

(MORE)

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
31.

JACK (cont’d)

because you are too old for me, am

I right?

MARIAN:

That too, but I have a family. Damn

it.

JACK:

If a 63 yr old man can marry a 32

yr old woman and cases like that

have happened, what’s wrong with

you living with me?

MARIAN:

You are insane; you want me to

marry you?

JACK:

I do not want you to marry me. I

know I’m underage.

MARIAN:

So what exactly do you have in

mind?

JACK:

Just for us to be together.

MARIAN:

You’re crazy, I know it now and

sick too.

JACK:

Not paying attention to the last

comment. The house is in whose name

Marian, yours or Joe’s?

MARIAN:

What difference does that make?

JACK:

Whose name is it in?

MARIAN:

(angrily)

Mine!

JACK:

Splendid! You see, after you have

divorced him, Chris, you and I can

live there and when I’m 21 we’ll

get married. I’m rich. I get a big

piece of cake.

MARIAN:

You are not getting the message

through your head.

JACK:

I am purposely not getting it

through because I want you to

divorce your husband, understand?

MARIAN:

You mean you planned this whole

thing? All the good behavior,

manipulating Chris to fulfill your

own selfish desire, going with me

to the Supermarket and inviting me

here to the restaurant; all

planned!

JACK:

Well, most of it. After I left the

first day Joe hired me, I knew that

I would fall deeply in love with

you as I could not control myself

so I planned to always be suave,

sophisticated and fun every time I

was around you, however I really

like Chris, I would never hurt him

in anyway.

MARIAN:

You diabolical, calculating

bastard!

JACK:

Hey! (he grabs her arm). Never say

bastard to me. I am my mothers and

fathers legitimate child. Now, hear

me good, you better divorce your

husband if you know what’s good for

you and him. I am obsessed with you

and that can be very deadly.

MARIAN:

You stay away from my family, you

hear me or I will have you sent to

jail, I’m warning you.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
33.

JACK:

I tell you what, why don’t you tell

this very interesting and

intriguing conversation to your

husband and I will stop by

tomorrow.

MARIAN:

Go to hell Jack, stay away from my

family, we don’t need you anymore,

you’re fired. (She leaves).

JACK:

(talking to himself)

So, she deliberately did not take

me with her. Anyway, no problem at

all, I’ll take a bus home.

STEWARD:

Oh, has madam left sir?

JACK:

No, she’s waiting for me in the

car.

STEWARD:

Well sir, here’s your bill. Good

night sir.

JACK:

Good night, pleasant dreams.

STEWARD:

Same to you sir! Jack pays the bill

and takes a bus home.

INT. THE THATCHER’S HOME - NIGHT

Marian goes home and talks to Joe. Friday:

JOE:

Hi honey. How was the dinner? You

guys were away for a while. Which

restaurant did you go to? Where’s

Jack? Marian does not respond and

she starts walking up the stairs.

Is anything the matter Marian?

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
34.

MARIAN:

Jack has gone mad.

JOE:

What happened?

MARIAN:

The guy has flipped, he’s really

lost his mind, he’s crazy, sick and

perverted and I could never have

imagined this.

JOE:

For God’s sake Marian, calm down

and tell me what is wrong?

MARIAN:

He wants me to divorce you.

JOE:

You’re kidding me.

MARIAN:

I wish I was, but I’m not. Jack has

everything calculated, planned and

well organized. He is absolutely

obsessed with me. He wants to live

in this house, since it’s in my

name with Chris and me and then

eventually marry me when he’s 21.

JOE:

I am shocked; I could never have

imagined that he would turn out to

be this diabolical, it’s scary.

MARIAN:

Yes, well now I can tell you that,

that crush never wore off. The man

is just a psycho, I tried reasoning

with him too, but nothing helped

and you say that you are shocked; I

am absolutely petrified that he can

be this malicious, oh God!

JOE:

How could he manipulate a 4 yr old

boy, who truly loves him, it’s

sickening?

MARIAN:

He said that he likes him a lot and

that he would never do anything to

hurt him because...

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
35.

JOE:

You believe that?

MARIAN:

As ridiculous as it may sound, I

believe that he would never harm

him, but us I could not say.

JOE:

Didn’t you fire him?

MARIAN:

Yes, I was really mad; I exploded

at him and I said that he must stay

away from my family or I will have

him sent to jail.

JOE:

Then, he won’t be back.

MARIAN:

I am not sure about that. He is

crazy and sick and I don’t know

whether he has become crazy or he

has always been crazy and you have

to see him to believe that he is in

fact senile.

JOE:

Has he told you he’ll come here

tomorrow?

MARIAN:

Yes, he has, he said that I will

come and talk to Joe and tell him

about the interesting conversation

that took place over dinner,

tomorrow.

JOE:

The little bastard! Well, if he

comes here tomorrow I am really

going to scare the wits out of him.

MARIAN:

I hope so.

JOE:

Don’t worry about it unnecessarily,

let’s have a good night’s sleep

okay and by the way I put Chris to

bed a long time ago and he’s fast

asleep.

(CONTINUED)

MARIAN:

Good.

JOE:

You know Jack is really a good

cook. Marian starts crying. I’m

sorry honey. I didn’t mean for it

to sound like that. It’s like I

told you before, I understand. He

brought the food and obviously, he

had planned to bring it, that’s

certain!

MARIAN:

That’s not all.

JOE:

Oh, there’s more?

MARIAN:

Yes, he came by bus today since his

car had broken down!

JOE:

That devil and I thought he was

taking you out to dinner. He is

calculating and who paid for the

dinner?

MARIAN:

Jack must have and I was so furious

that I just stormed out of the

restaurant and didn’t think about

the bill.

JOE:

Did the car really break down?

MARIAN:

I don’t think so, that was probably

part of his act, but then again you

never know.

JOE:

Well, never mind. Let’s go to

sleep. I’ll take care of him

tomorrow, if he shows up.

MARIAN:

Please do. I just wish I hadn’t

gone for dinner with him. The

minute he talked about dinner; I

should have just fired him.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:

JOE:

You can’t blame yourself; and we

could not think that Jack would

turn out to be such a manipulating,

diabolical fiend, especially with

an innocent, handsome face like

that, no we never would have

suspected this, even if we had

thought about it in our wildest

dreams, no way!

I’ll handle this honey. I see your

true colors now young man, what

brings you here Jack?

JACK:

Way to put it eloquently Joe, last

night I had told Marian to tell you

about our little conversation, did

she tell you?

JOE:

I heard about it and I could not

believe it; what the hell is wrong

with you Jack?

JACK:

Oh, nothing’s wrong with me. I just

told her that I wanted her to

divorce you, that’s it. I love her.

But, she doesn’t love you. She used

to like you, now she hates you and

so do I. Now, kindly leave or I

house.

JOE (CONT’D)

Who asked you to come in?

JACK:

I just wanted to see Chris.

JOE:

I see, so that you can use him to

further gratify your obsession with

Marian.

JACK:

Listen to me, once and for all both

of you. I have never ever used

Chris in any way, I love him just

like I love my own baby sister. (to

marian) Now, have you thought about

it?

MARIAN:

The answer is still no. I will

never divorce my husband, even if

he becomes poor, is that clear?

JACK:

Come on Marian.

MARIAN:

That’s Mrs. Thatcher to you now.

JACK:

I could give you twice more money

or love than he can. Marian makes a

threatening move but Joe has

grabbed Jack’s shoulders and shakes

him violently.

JOE:

I have had just about enough of

this sick, pathetic, useless

discussion, is that clear? You are

one loony. Leave this very instant

or I will kill you. Do you

understand me? He lets him go.

I’ll go. (on the way out

I mean it. (to Joe) Beware!

JOE:

Get out of here you bastard before

I really lose my mind and kill you.

Chris comes down.

CHRIS:

Hi Jack. Joe and Marian hold him.

JACK:

(to Chris) Chris honey, your

parents and I have had a huge

argument and they no longer

want me to stay with you.

CHRIS:

No. Mommy, daddy what’s wrong?

JACK:

No more games Chris.

JOE:

Enough! Leave! (Jack leaves)

CHRIS:

(shouts)

No Jack, don’t go.

Jack hears him SHOUTING from outside. He looks back and sees

that he’s upset and then he goes his way.

MARIAN:

(to chris)

Chris, you are too young to

understand what has happened; Jack

has behaved badly, that’s why daddy

and I have fired him.

Chris cries.

Stop crying sweetie. Listen, mommy

will read a story to you only if

you promise me that you’ll stop

crying.

Hi honey.

MARIAN:

Hi Joe, when will you be coming

home?

JOE:

I’m really very busy honey. I’ll

try and be home by nine but don’t

wait up for me, okay. Give Chris a

kiss from me.

MARIAN:

I will honey.

JOE:

Oh, by the way, is Chris still

upset with us for firing Jack?

No, he hasn’t mentioned a word so I

Board of Directors tomorrow.

Very good Mrs. Carlyle, see you

MRS.CARLYLE

See you sir. Joe walks to his car

in the parking lot. He opens the

door and sees Jack. Jack’s hands

are together behind his back and is

holding a baseball bat but Joe does

not see it.

JOE:

What the hell? How do you know I

work here? I never told you.

JACK:

I know Joe. Marian did, the day we

had gone to the Supermarket.

JOE:

Didn’t I tell you never to come

back?

JACK:

No. Marian did, but you did not.

All you said was get out of here

this instant, but you never said

don’t come back.

MARIAN:

can I do for you?

OFFICER 1

Mam, we’re terribly sorry, but

unfortunately we found your

husband’s body outside Rock Hard

Industry and it appears to be

murder. His body has been kept at

the morgue and someone bludgeoned

him to death.

MARIAN:

(shocked)

Do you have the name of the person

who was murdered?

OFFICER 2

Yes mam, Joe Thatcher and Mr.

Thatcher was your husband, wasn’t

he?

MARIAN:

Yes he was.

OFFICER 1

Is there anything we can do for you

mam?

MARIAN:

Yes, please find that murderer and

kill him.

OFFICER 2

We will mam; and you sound like you

know the person who committed the

murder, who is he?

MARIAN:

I do. His name is Jack Hinckley. He

used to be our babysitter.

OFFICER 1

(surprised)

How old is this Jack Hinckley?

MARIAN:

Seventeen!

OFFICER 2

Why would a 17 yr old teenager want

to commit murder and tear a family

apart, it doesn’t make sense?

MARIAN:

That’s because he is a psycho. The

guy is obsessed with me. He wanted

me to divorce my husband and live

with me. Obviously, that’s why he

got rid of my husband.

OFFICER 1

We’ll get him mam. Don’t you worry.

He won’t harm you, I can promise

you that. We’ll have a patrol car

guarding the house day and night

just in case we can’t find

Hinckley. Do you have his address

mam?

MARIAN:

Yes, 2250, Westside Lane, Las

Vegas, Nevada, 89117.

OFFICER 1

Right, and now don’t worry, we’ll

find this guy easily now; you know

he made a big mistake giving you

his address.

MARIAN:

Wait a second, supposing he gave a

wrong address.

OFFICER 2

What do you mean? Did he plan this

murder way in advance?

MARIAN:

Well, he may not have thought of

killing my husband at first, but

(MORE)

MARIAN (cont’d)

since he is really careful and

extremely calculating; he must have

considered every alternative and

then committed the crime.

OFFICER 1

Oh, I don’t think so. If he did

that, he’ll be the cleverest

murderer in town; I don’t think

that’s possible. Furthermore, he’s

only seventeen. They have to make a

mistake sometime. Do you have a

photograph of him?

MARIAN:

No. Damn it, I should have taken a

picture of him.

OFFICER 1

Well, now don’t worry about it.

We’ll see that this bastard is

taken care of and locked up all his

life for a heinous crime like this

and there is absolutely no excuse,

regardless if you are obsessed or

not for this sort of animal

behavior; he shall get his due.

OFFICER 2

I will guard the house. I’ll follow

you everywhere you go and he won’t

be able to touch you, I guarantee.

OFFICER 1

I’ll check the address out and can

you describe him just in case it’s

the wrong address?

MARIAN:

Definitely, he’s tall, dark and

handsome and he sounds British, but

not completely. That’s about it and

oh, he did tell me that his dad is

an attorney and his mom is a

homemaker and they are vacationing

at Lake Havasu at the moment and

they won’t be back for a few days.

night. Unbelievable, as it may

sound, he did give you the wrong

address, however, I did get his

correct address from the Department

Of Motor Vehicles and I went to his

home but he was not there. His

parents are not back as yet from

Lake Havasu.

MARIAN:

I had a feeling he had given me the

wrong address. The reason being

that if I did not meet his demands,

he would do something dreadful, I

came to realize this only after

Joe’s death; like I mentioned

earlier to you Todd, he considers

every alternative.

TODD:

Well, don’t worry mam; have you

read this morning’s papers as yet?

MARIAN:

No.

TODD:

The papers have the description of

Hinckley and there’s a $10,000

reward to anyone who can either

tell the whereabouts of Hinckley or

can bring him to the police

station. The F.B.I. is also

involved in the case. It’s on the

11:
30 a.m. news on CNN, Hinckley

will hear it on the news that he is

the most wanted criminal, if he

hasn’t already read it in the

newspapers and will start panicking

and is going to make a mistake

somewhere. He cannot get to you but

we will catch him and when we do;

CONTINUED:
47.

TODD (cont’d)

he is finished for life okay, so

don’t lose heart; it will be all

over soon.

MARIAN:

Thank you so much Todd, you know

you and Officer Jackson have been

wonderful; absolutely angels, I

don’t know what I would have done

without the two of you, thank you.

TODD:

Not at all Marian, protecting

people from the Hinckleys of the

world today is our sole

responsibility.

MARIAN:

Would you like to come in for

breakfast?

TODD:

No, thanks mam!

MARIAN:

Alright then, definitely for lunch

and tea then, is that alright?

TODD:

Yes mam, thank you and Marian, I’m

sure that your husband would have

wanted you to be strong and bear

this unfortunate situation for a

little while longer; so hang in

there.

MARIAN:

(sadly)

Yes, he would.

TODD:

Well, I’ll be in my car.

MARIAN:

Okay. Chris comes down.

CHRIS:

Hello mommy. Where’s daddy? I did

not see him last night nor did I

see him this morning. Has he gone

to work?

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
48.

MARIAN:

(holds Chris tightly and

cries)

Chris sweetie, daddy is dead.

CHRIS:

No.

He cries.

MARIAN:

Yes honey, I’m so sorry. Jack

murdered him.

CHRIS:

Jack did? Why would Jack do a bad

thing like that mommy? Jack has

always been good to me, I don’t

understand.

MARIAN:

Some people do these kinds of bad

things, sweetie. I promise you

Chris, the unhappiness that Jack

has given to this family will not

go unpunished, the police are

looking for him, he will be found

and he will go to jail and

everything will be alright.

CHRIS:

(angry and crying)

I hope he does. I hope the police

hang him.

MARIAN:

They will sweetie. They will. Come

honey, mommy has to go to the

Supermarket to buy groceries, so

get dressed and let’s go. Outside,

Marian talks to Officer Harrison. I

have to go shopping.

TODD:

Alright, I’ll be right behind you.

Todd waits outside the supermarket, but keeps an eye on

Marian. Hinckley is in the supermarket and he sees Marian

and also notices the police car outside, he has disguised

himself. Jack has kept an alias and is staying in a hotel

and his parents are still out of town.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
49.

JACK:

(to himself)

I’m coming for you Marian. We are

going to live together. That’s for

sure. Marian sees him, but she does

not recognize him and she leaves

the supermarket, then Jack follows

too after Officer Harrison leaves.

CUT TO:

INT./ EXT. THE THATCHER’S HOME - DAY

Thursday 5:
30 am, Marian’s alarm clock RINGS. Officer

Jackson has stayed awake all night, but now he begins to

doze off. Hinckley comes and he bludgeons Officer Jackson to

death, he has a set of master keys and he opens the door and

enters the house. Jack places his bat under the table.

Marian comes down. He makes himself visible. They stare at

each other for a brief moment and then begin to chat.

JACK:

Hello Marian.

MARIAN:

(angrily) The police will get

you, you bastard. This was an

incredibly dumb move that you

made; now you’ll pay, you cold

hearted snake.

JACK:

(calmly)

I don’t think so Marian. I like

that, cold hearted snake, eh? Why

don’t you take a look through the

window? Marian goes hesitantly. Go

on. She sees the car and Jackson

lying dead on the seat.

MARIAN:

You vicious murderer! You are the

most perverted swine I have ever

seen in my whole life; you actually

enjoy killing.

JACK:

I do not enjoy killing. Although,

there is a kind of thrill in it,

however Marian, none of this would

have happened if you had divorced

Joe. Marian unable to control

JACK (cont’d)

herself is filled with hate and

rage and runs up to Jack and

STRIKES him hard across the face.

MARIAN:

You animal! Jack is filled with

rage. He gets his bat from under

the table and on seeing this Marian

immediately darts out of the house.

JACK:

Vengeance! The chase begins. While

running...

JACK(CONT’D)

Marian, Chris is all alone in the

house.

MARIAN:

Oh God! Somebody help me.

JACK:

Where can you go Marian? I’ll track

you down anywhere. There’s no use

in running. I tried to reason with

you, but your answer was very

clear. You must die now. Do you

hear me?

MARIAN:

(screaming in terror)

Please. Help me someone. Won’t you?

They are still running. They come

to a railway track. A train is

coming. Marian is about 20 feet

away from the train.

JACK:

Oh lord! Can Marian make it? Can

she cross the track? She makes it

but now the train is a few feet

away from Jack.

JACK (CONT’D)

Shucks! I better shut up or I won’t

make it. Then it’ll be all over. He

jumps as the train is three feet

away from him but in the process

his bat drops from his hand and

falls on the track and is shattered

to pieces, he makes it safely

across and is ecstatic.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
51.

JACK (CONT’D)

Yes. Man beats machine.

CONDUCTOR:

Jesus Christ. What is that kid

thinking? The rest of the

passengers are dazzled, surprised

and shocked. Meanwhile, Marian who

is still running sees a phone

booth. She dials 911.

TODD:

Officer Harrison speaking!

MARIAN:

Todd, it’s Marian. Listen to me,

he’s got Henry. Hinckley is after

me. I am at the Pacific Railway

Station. Come quickly. He’s going

to kill me.

TODD:

Marian, don’t panic. We are on our

way. Hinckley sees her on the phone

from a distance. Marian, on seeing

him drops the receiver and runs for

her life.

JACK:

Marian! He gains on her and he

flies on top of her. There is a

struggle, she kicks him in the

stomach and makes a getaway but he

catches her again. A second

struggle follows. He pins her on

the ground and starts strangling

her.

JACK:

If you had just listened to me that

day Marian, none of this would have

happened, I mean it. The cops

arrive. Todd grabs him and throws

him away from Marian. He then

places the cuffs on him and he

tells another officer to read him

his rights and goes over to Marian.

TODD:

(comforting Marian)

Are you alright Marian?

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:
52.

MARIAN:

(breathless)

If you hadn’t got here now Todd, he

would have strangled me. Oh my God!

She cries.

TODD:

It’s over. It’s all over. Where’s

Chris?

MARIAN:

He’s at home sleeping. Todd goes to

talk to Jack.

TODD:

I guess you have a long life ahead

of you in prison.

JACK:

I guess you’re right. He stares

angrily at Marian. They look at

each other for the last time.

TODD:

Take him away and book him for two

counts of first degree murder and

one count of attempted murder. Jack

is taken away by the other

officers.

TODD (CONT’D)

Marian, I’ll take you home. Let’s

go.

They leave.
