REPORTER ( ON RADIO): It's Day

7 of the nationwide manhunt...

for the Death Cult Congregation

leader known as The Reaper.

This man has been...

FEMALE REPORTER 1 (ON RADIO): After a freak

power failure during the execution...

at Central Prison, The Reaper escaped,

killing several police officers...

and leaving multiple wounded

in his rampage.

Former ordained minister,

The Reaper...

has been incarcerated

and sentenced to death...

by electric chair for leading his followers

in what they called "healing" parties.

( ELECTRICITY BUZZING )

FEMALE REPORTER 2 (V.O.): So, Professor,

can you tell us a little about the victims?

PROFESSOR Well, The Reaper's victims

were known to be convicted felons...

prostitutes, drug dealers and

gang members and that sort.

Of the victims, two have been decorated

officers under investigation...

by Internal Affairs, involving a

department-wide investigation into corruption.

The governor has declared

a statewide dusk curfew.

( SHRIEKING )

( DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING )

REPORTER (ON RADIO): What we can do,

is to advise people not to pick up...

hitchhikers, stay indoors as much

as possible, and stay off the road.

NATALIE (V.O.):
Hey, Mom, it's me, Natalie.

I'm on my way with my friends.

They're giving me a ride all

the way to California.

Don't worry, I'll stay away

from strangers. I promise.

See you soon. I love you.

( SOFT MUSIC PLAYING )

( BRAKES SQUEALING )

Hey, thanks for the lift.

Hey, come here often?

Yeah, they've got great... sand.

( LAUGHS )

So, are you gonna be

a smartass or a gentleman?

What's the difference?

A gentleman would have just

opened my door right now.

This is either my lucky day...

or you are gonna cause me

some serious trouble.

But be warned...

the air conditioner in this thing

is broken, so it's kind of hot.

Been drinking?

Only since I woke up.

Rum's really the best way

to the pass the time.

Well, I guess drinking in the morning makes

you more of a pirate than an alcoholic.

Arrgh! Let's plot a course.

As far west as my captain

is willing to take me.

You got it.

( COUNTRY ROCK MUSIC PLAYING )

[BILL] So, what's your story?

Oh, are we gonna play the

getting to know each other game?

I like games. All right,

let's see here.

Searching or running?

Pretty girl like you hitchhiking

out here in the middle of nowhere.

I'm guessing you're either

running from your old life...

or you're searching

for your new life, right?

Yeah, I kinda like me as I am.

Oh, no complaints here.

But that doesn't mean you're

telling the truth.

So how long have you

been a salesman for?

How did you know that?

Beat up company car, old suit...

and I'd bet you'd have a conversation

with a brick wall if you had to.

I sell air conditioners.

But your own AC doesn't work?

I, uh... in-home air

conditioners.

Sounds fun.

Oh, it is. It's a hoot.

I love it.

Driving from one crappy town

to the next crappy town...

selling crappy AC units

to crappy people.

Well, it pays the bills.

Yes, it pays the bills.

Pays the Bill. Me.

You got a name?

Sure do.

You gonna keep me guessing?

I'll give you a hint.

Sounds like "Sheryl."

I like the sound of that.

Huh... maybe I should drive?

No, no, I got it, I got it,

kiddo, I got it.

( EERIE MUSIC FADES UP )

Now where were we?

I was about to get out.

Now why would you go

and do that?

Because you almost

just killed us.

Relax, have a drink.

( ENGINE SPUTTERS )

Man. Not again! I hate this.

What?

Car's overheating.

That's why I don't run the AC.

Well, can we at least make

it to the next stop?

You bet your ass

we're gonna try.

I saw a motel back there.

Maybe we'll turn around

and go check that out.

( EERIE MUSIC FADES UP )

( ELECTRICITY BUZZING )

( DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING )

( MUSIC CONTINUES )

( ENGINE SPUTTERING )

Car ought to cool down

in a couple minutes.

Great.

( CHURCH BELL TOLLS )

I've been driving

since before sun-up.

I don't know, I'm thinking I

might just call it for the day.

Okay, well I'm just gonna get out here

and go hitch a ride somewhere else.

No, no, wait, wait, wait,

whoa, whoa.

C'mon, don't tell me you're not

up for a little excitement.

Naw, dude. I have hit my excitement

quota for the year, thank you.

All right, look. How 'bout this?

Go inside, we'll have a couple drinks and

mellow out, you know, just chill for a minute.

You know, hit the reset button.

Decompress.

And then if you want to go,

you can. Totally.

I mean, look, how bad can it be?

There's a church right

across the street.

Bill, I am not the kind of girl

that you think I am.

I keep telling you,

it's not about that.

I'm just... I know that

you are low on the money.

And a hotel is here.

I'm not gonna sit here and beg

you to hang out with me.

You're... you're kind

of begging right now.

Come on.

( SOFT MUSIC PLAYING )

( DOOR BELL JINGLES )

Hello?

Anyone here?

What's the deal

with this place, man?

Hello? Brother and sister.

Oh, um... we're not related.

But you are here

for relations. Correct?

We, uh... we... we're newlyweds.

Do you, um, you got any

honeymoon suites?

They're all honeymoon suites.

I've been spraying them down...

and mopping them up

for the last 30 years.
