I'm doing this because I love you.

You know what happened.

This is what you'll turn into.

Don't talk to anyone.

- I warn you.

- Don't move a muscle unless I tell you to.

- Don't talk to anyone.

- Why would you keep things from me?

John! Look at me. Look at me, John.

Look at me.

Don't look at me unless I tell you to.

Don't talk to anyone. Don't talk to anyone.

John, why would you...

I don't love you anymore.

How many times do the people of Nebraska

have to be embarrassed by the man

that represents it?

That was challenger Ted Johnson

responding to the latest scandal

to rock the highly contested Senate race

between he and incumbent senator

Jackson Wyatt.

Wyatt has been photographed

with yet another woman that is not his wife.

- Good morning, Mr. French.

- Good morning.

Thank you, sir.

John, Mr. Crill's election

celebration's today.

I've taken the liberty of cutting

some flowers from my garden

for all the men to wear on their lapels.

Have all this finished by 3:00.

You're probably

going to have to skip lunch.


Paycheck for you.

I don't know why she didn't make

one of her girls make this.

I know. It's ridiculous.

Fanny's just promoting her shelter.

I can't believe

she's throwing him another party.

Girls, once you're done with that thing...

- And keep the candy in a...

- A separate bag, John?

- Baseball cards, too?

- Yes. Yes, please. Five packs.

- Hello, John.

- Hello.

It's always nice to see a friendly face.

- Hello, Mrs. Sternberg.

- Louise. Call me Louise.

Okay, Mrs. Sternberg.

Must get lonely in that house.

You should come over to dinner.

- I make a wonderful pot roast.

- Well, excuse me.

Ron, should someone call Dr. Elkins?

Can you move your fingers and toes?

No, no, no.

- I'll stay right here.

- We thought you were a goner.

You're lucky to be alive.

Can everyone please step back?

- Who is she?

- I didn't know John had a wife.

You afraid?

Kyle, why don't you run inside

to the kitchen?

I don't mean to be rude,

but how do you know John?

- Are you family?

- I live here.

John! John!

You okay? Another 10 feet,

your house would've been a goner.

- Is your lady friend okay?

- My breakfast is getting cold.


- Hey, John.

- Officer.

We just heard about the train.

Is everything...

I'm... I'm supposed to go to work now.

- John, I heard about the train.

- Good morning, Mr. French.

- Was there a woman there?

- Thank you.

Was there a woman in your house?

I mean...

- I heard about the train.

- I really need to get this work done.

There he is, John Skillpa. Talk of the town.

- Morning, Mr. Crill.

- Good morning, Doris.

So a train bucks the rail,

winds up in your backyard

and you still come to work?

Yes, sir. Well, I had to.

I've never seen anything like that.

So what can I do for you?

Day off? Remember, we're all family here,

so take advantage.

- Hello, sir. These need to get done.

- Thank you.

I don't care about the work.

And I don't think Edmund does, either.

Of course not.

I suggested he take the day off

as soon as he came into work this morning.

John, go home.

I'll just get this one work done,

and then I'll go home for lunch,

if that's okay with you, sir. Please.



John, these need to be done. Thanks.

- There you are.

- Officer.

This morning on your bike,

you acted like you've never seen me before.

- John...

- Superman!

Hey, kids. Go on, get down from there.

Go on.

I knocked on your door this morning

to check on the young lady

you got staying with you.

Nobody answered.

Some of the women tell me she's your wife.
