The Accountant

Synopsis: Christian Wolff is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world's most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department's Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King, starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.

Hey, hey, hey!

What the f*ck?

Wait! I gotta call it in!

Move it!


Bobby, you hear me?

Right there, motherfucker!


Just fucking stop, man!

Just put the gun down!

Come on.


I'm fucking begging you.

I didn't touch him.

I didn't touch that old man!

I wasn't even...

Justine, please.

It's called "stimming," self-stimulation.

Whereas you and I might tap our fingers,

grind our teeth, bite our nails,

your son rocks back and forth.

It's more obvious, but perfectly natural.

We came here because

we heard you specialized in...

What is it? What does he have?

I'm not a fan of labels, ma'am.

Your son is a remarkable young man.

Who goes crazy

when you turn the vacuum on.

He wears one T-shirt,

won't let you hug him.

Loud noises, bright lights

can be especially difficult

for someone like your son.

The shirt, most likely fabric sensitivity.

Hugging, closeness, touching...

Justine, no shoes today.

That can be a challenge, yes.

When it's somebody else's child,

it's a challenge.

When it's yours, it's a problem.

My practice focuses on education.

I'd like to work with your son,

at his speed.

Help him develop the skills

he'll need to lead a full life.

Communicating, eye contact,

understanding non-verbal cues,

making friends.

The only friend he has

is his little brother.

I'm sure moving from base to base

hasn't helped.

My husband's in the Army,

which means we all are.

Would you be willing to let your son

stay with us for the summer

free of charge, working with me

in a sensory-friendly environment?

That's not gonna happen.

If loud noises and bright lights

bother him,

he needs more of it, not less.

The world is not a sensory-friendly place,

and that's where

he needs to learn to live.

Not in here.

Doctor, in your opinion,

can our son lead a normal life?

Define normal.

I need to finish! I need to finish!

Hmm. Mmm.

I, uh... I never thought of myself as

a quitter... Fourth-generation farmer.

But between the property taxes

and the fertilizer costs, and insurance...

Oh, to hell with it.

What if, just temporarily, mind you,

we put this year's taxes

on our credit card?

Do you like it?

I made it myself.

No, not particularly.

But do you ever sell them?

At church fairs now and again.

Mrs. Rice, you may have what the IRS

calls a "home-based business."

What room do you use in your house

when you make those?

I don't, really.

Just wherever I happen to be, I guess.

In front of the TV, at the kitchen table.

I like to spread my beads out

in the dining room, but Frank gets...

Yes, it would be better

if you could try to remember

the one specific space that you use.

Your home is 2,913 square feet.

IRS code allows us to deduct

from your taxable income

a percentage of your workspace

relative to your overall home.

- What...

- Mr. Rice...

How big is your dining room?

Mrs. Rice's office.

I wouldn't so much as call it an office...


It's, uh, approximately 200, uh...

Well, make it 300 square feet.

Excellent. Mrs. Rice...


Dolores, when you order supplies,

do you order online?

I don't. I just zip on over
