Removal

Synopsis: Cole is a likeable regular guy. Except that ever since he witnessed a gruesome murder-suicide, things haven't been quite right. His wife left him, he is tormented by hallucinations and his career has nosedived into a blue collar job with a carpet cleaning service. Just when it seems his life has reached bottom, Cole is called out on an all-night cleaning job in an Italianate mansion far from the city. For company he has Henry, the rich, condescending homeowner who seems to take sadistic pleasure in letting Cole think he has just murdered his wife. A reddish stain on the carpet, a knife hacking into baked rabbit, a cell phone that won't stop ringing - does it add up to murder or is Cole losing his last handhold on his fragile sanity?

BELIEVE ME,

THE LAST THING I WAN

IS TO BE LETTING YOU GO

LIKE THIS.

IT'S JUST THAT IT'S

A ROUGH TIME FOR EVERYONE.

PEOPLE GET SCARED.

THEY GET SCARED AND

THEY PULL OUT THEIR MONEY.

WELL, DID HE SAY

SOMETHING ABOUT ME?

IS THAT WHA THIS IS ALL ABOUT?

NO, HE DIDN' GIVE A REASON.

CAN SOMEBODY TELL ME

JUST EXACTLY HOW THE F*CK

SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPENS?

- LANGUAGE.

- YEAH, JESUS.

SHIT, MAN, TAKE IT EASY.

DON'T TELL ME

TO TAKE IT EASY, TODD.

THIS ISN'T HAPPENING TO YOU.

IT'S HAPPENING TO ME.

I'M SORRY,

BUT WHAT'S DONE IS DONE.

WHAT ARE YOU SAYING TO ME?

I'M SAYING

WHAT'S DONE IS DONE.

(distant dog barking)

Boy:

MOM!

(birds chirping)

(garage door humming)

(cell phone ringing)

Man:

Don't say anything.

I just need you

to come over here

Right away.

(phone line ringing)

(distant phone ringing)

(doorbell rings)

(phone continues ringing)

HELLO?

(answering machine clicks)

Female voice:

No one is available

Please leave a message

after the tone.

KERSHE?

YEAH, BACK HERE.

OH GOOD, IT'S YOU.

IT'S NICE TO SEE YOU, COLE.

THE DOOR WAS OPEN

AND I--

YEAH YEAH, GOOD.

COME.

COME ON IN.

SORRY. I DON'T HAVE

ANY CLOTHES ON.

EVERYTHING HAS JUST BECOME

SUCH A GODDAMN MESS LATELY.

AND I NEVER HAVE BEEN

VERY GOOD AT HOUSEKEEPING.

- KERSHE, PUT THE GUN DOWN.

- I'M NOT FINISHED WITH IT.

BUT I DON'T WANT YOU

TO WORRY ABOUT THAT, COLE.

THIS IS STRICTLY

A FAMILY AFFAIR.

YOU KNOW?

I'M GONNA CALL SOMEBODY.

NO NO NO, DON'T.

CAN WE JUST--

CAN WE JUST SIT HERE

TOGETHER FOR A MINUTE--

YOU AND ME? AND--

YOU KNOW WHA MY PROBLEM IS, COLE?

I ALWAYS TRIED TO DO

EVERYTHING MYSELF...

NEVER WANTED ANY HELP

FROM ANYBODY.

I THOUGH THAT MADE ME STRONG,

BUT I'VE BEEN

A VERY WEAK MAN, COLE--

VERY WEAK.

(sighs)

THE TRUTH IS,

THE ONLY REAL STRENGTH

IS KNOWING:

YOU CAN'T DO IT ALONE.

SO I REALLY WAN TO THANK YOU,

BECAUSE I DON'T THINK

I COULD HAVE DONE THIS

ANYWAY,

IT'S GETTING LATE

AND I KNOW YOU'VE--

YOU'VE GOT THINGS

TO DO, SO...

SO...

AWAY WE GO.

(birds chirping)

I'VE BEEN IN THIS--

THIS BIN:

FOR THE LAST 30 DAYS.

I'M HAPPY AS HELL

TO BE GETTING OUT OF HERE.

EXCITED TO GET BACK

WITH MY FAMILY,

PICK UP RIGHT WHERE

WE LEFT OFF.

Man:

AND YOU FEEL THA

READY AS I'LL EVER BE.

IT'S TRUE YOU'VE MADE

SOME PRETTY SIGNIFICAN

AND WE'VE BEEN

TALKING A LOT ABOU

HOW HE PLANS ON:

STAYING BUSY OUT THERE.

OUT THERE?

CHRIST, YOU MAKE IT SOUND

LIKE I AM PARACHUTING

BEHIND ENEMY LINES.

DO YOU EXPEC TO FIND MANY ENEMIES

NO, THAT'S--

THAT'S NOT WHAT I MEANT.

I--

I HAVE A JOB LINED UP.

ARE YOU AT ALL CONCERNED

ABOUT YOUR ABILITY

TO MANAGE:

THE HALLUCINATIONS?

THEY'RE HALLUCINATIONS.

THAT MEANS THEY'RE NOT REAL,

SO NO PROBLEMO.

I'LL TAKE MY MEDS.

I PROMISE, OKAY?

OKAY?

JENNIFER, I'M SEEING

SOMETHING GOING ON

DO YOU WANT TO TELL US

ABOUT IT?

IT'S--

IT'S BEEN--

IT'S JUST BEEN A LOT.

AND I DON'T KNOW,

I GUESS I JUST DON'T FEEL

VERY COMFORTABLE WITH YOU.

SAY THAT TO HIM.

I'M SORRY,

AM I MISSING SOMETHING HERE?

IT'S-- IT'S JUST--

I'M SORRY, I--

I DON'T FEEL SAFE

WITH YOU ANYMORE.

WHAT?

YOU'VE JUST--

YOU'RE NOT--

I JUST-- I THINK

YOU NEED MORE HELP.

GIVEN THE PARTICULARS

OF YOUR CONDITION,

IN ADDITION:

TO THE ADDED STRESS

OF A RECENT TRAUMA,

WE BELIEVE THAT THE WORK

YOU'VE DONE WITH US

IS ONLY THE BEGINNING

OF WHAT WILL BE:

A CONSIDERABLY LONGER PROCESS

OF REHABILITATION.

HOW MUCH LONGER?

WE'RE RECOMMENDING

THAT YOU UNDERGO AN

AT $1000 A DAY.

THE COST OF TREATMEN IS THE COST OF TREATMENT.

THE QUESTION IS,

ARE YOU PREPARED

TO PAY THE PRICE OF LEAVING
