Is anybody there?


-Woohoo! Yeah!

-Daryl has to work!

-Woohoo! Yeah!

-Daryl has to work! (LAUGHTER)

Let me tell you something.

This damn farm's done pretty

well by you and that boy.

-I want to sell the place.

-Well just who in the hell

is going to buy it?

I don't care.

You don't want Daryl to go to

Los Angeles, do you?

Hell no, I need him to

work the farm!

You didn't want Tommy to leave

either. You wanted him to

waste his life here

just like we did.

This farm has fed and raised

them two boys and Tommy up

and left

and you want Daryl to do the

same thing.

I want Daryl to have

a better life than we did.

-I don't want him to go.

-I don't care what you want.

I care about the boy's future.

We have used our life's

savings trying to keep

this place going.

Now I am sick of you, I'm sick

of this place and I'm getting

out before

I'm too old to start over.

I know it's me you're really

sick of. Well by God, that

goes two ways.

Tommy's gone, Daryl's leaving

and so are you.

By God, it doesn't leave me

much choice.

I'm getting the hell out, too.

Honey, I want you

to write down this number.

-Where is it?

-Missouri. I'm going there

for a while.

Write down this number.

Area code 816



In case you get hungry

along the way.

Whatever happens,

I'll always love you.

-Where are you going, Dad?


-For how long?

-A little while.

-You, uh,

you got enough money, son?

-Yeah, I got money.

You know

sometimes things don't work

out the way you want them to.

-God knows, I wish they did.


Would passenger Daryl Cage

please identify himself to

the flight attendant

in the forward cabin.

-Mr. Cage?


Why don't you come with me?

I want you so bad.

We've landed.

Must have been some wild

dream. What was it about?

Come on, you can tell me.

I mean, I have really strange

dreams all the time.

I have a reoccurring nun

dream. These nuns are chasing

me through a tunnel

and when we come out the other

side, they're penguins.

You're quiet. That's okay.

I don't like people who

talk all the time.

-I'm an actress.


Mmm. Did you ever see

Massacre in Blood City ?



Cycle Sluts from Hell ?

-No, Ma'am.

-No, Ma'am?

-No, Ma'am.

-Where are you from?


-Life's a b*tch, ain't it?


I can't tell you what a great

experience it has been

talking to you.

-Yeah, you too.

-See you later! Bye!

-Uh, hey, you uh...

-Oh thanks! Jeez.

Hey! Hey! There's $50 missing!

No, I'm joking! Lighten up.

So look, um, if you get bored

while you're here, why don't

you drop in and see me?

-I work at the Beanery.

-Uh, what's your name,

by the way?

-It's Dizz.


I'm going to be here in

Los Angeles all summer.

Oh, you are? Could turn out

to be a real hot one.



-Hey, man.

-It's good to see you.


-This is my wife, Crys.

-Hi, how are you?

Good to see you.

-Hi! Tommy talks about you

all the time.

-Oh, does he?

-Yeah, you've grown up.

-What can I do, man?

I used to sling this kid

over my shoulder. (LAUGHTER)

-Did you have a good flight?

-Uh, yeah, it was okay.

-You look great.


-Do you have anything else?

-That one.

Great. All right, let's

get out of here.

-Okay, you're okay.


Sir, your stubs don't match.

Hey, slow down, man!

There it is. The dream house.

I built it from scratch.

So, uh, what do you think?

I built this for you.


It's your own private place.

You can't even see it

from the street.

You two go ahead.

You have a lot of catching up

to do.

-Good night.

-See you later.

Come on. Get in there.

-How'd De Witt do this year?

-Three and eight.

-That's not bad.

-Yeah it is.

-You never lost one, though,

did you?



Still wearing the ring?

-Yeah, I am.

You never missed a game,

did you?


-How are things at home?

-Pretty bad.

Mom left. Dad went away.

-Well, I guess it was just

a matter of time, huh?

-I guess.

-How come you left, man?

-I left for a lot of reasons.

I wanted you to come here

and live with us,

after we got married.

-But Mom and Dad said no.

-They never told me that.

I guess they were afraid to

lose their last son.


I want to tell you

some things.

Nothing bad, just...

Hey, it's okay.

I guess we could talk about it

in the morning.

We're just glad you're

here with us.

Holy sh*t.

Oh, my God.

Hey Tommy! Tommy!

Some weird stuff's happened.

There's some crazy stuff

in my bag. Where are you?

Hey, Crys!


Hey, Cage! Your septic

tank's overflowing.

I didn't do it!



Hey, what are you doing?

187 at 439 Valleyheart.

Male Caucasian 18 to 20

light hair blue jacket

fled the scene on foot.

Considered armed

and dangerous.



-Yes, police, this is

an emergency.


-Police emergency.

Where are you calling from?

-I don't know.


Go on, get out of here!


-Put your hands over

your head.

-Look out! He's got a gun!



-Get the hell out of here!




I'm sorry about that gun.

It's just something

I had to do.

Hey, I'm really lost here,

man. Do you think I should

go to the police?

Are you out of

your f***ing skull?

They almost blew you away.

-They think you did it.

-I didn't do it. I didn't do

anything, man.
