How is everything, Mr. Sabian?

- Great, as always.

- Good.

You get home now, Eva.

It's getting late.

Stay safe.

Yeah. You, too, Mr. Sabian.

Traffic is building rapidly downtown,

as citizens rush to get home

before commencement.

If you're not Purging, we advise you

to get off the streets

as quickly as possible.

It'll soon be a war out there.

Prognosticators estimate

that more people

will partake in this year's Purge...

Sabian's gone. That's it.

What is she waiting for?

Why doesn't this b*tch let us go?

Hey, calm down.

We got plenty of time.

You girls up to anything fun tonight?

I might kidnap Eva this year.

Hope that's okay with you, mami.

It's getting late.

Hope to see you

all tomorrow. Stay safe.

Okay, stay safe.

Finally. Stay safe, Mrs. Crawley.


Need a ride home?

I'm fine, Carlos.

Stay safe.

Bye, Carlito. Stay safe.

If he asked to take me home,

I'd accept that ride, girl.

He's a dog.

Oh, I like that dog. I would

walk the sh*t out of that dog.

But that dog doesn't want

anything to do with me,

he wants to sniff your ass.

- You're disgusting.

- It's true.

You're really gonna ask her tonight?

I have to.

I can't afford his

medicine much longer.

All right, good luck.

Stay safe.

Stay safe, sweetie.


Both the people and the

government wanted the Purge.

The New Founding Fathers

came into office...

Were voted into office by a

country who wanted change...

This new regime took advantage

of the nation's fear.

I'm glad we took the back roads.

The highways are probably

a mess right now.

Yeah. We'll be there in no time.


What are you looking at?

Nothing. Just, you know, stuff.

Are you okay?

Yeah. I'm fine.

You sure?

You don't need to keep asking me.

My name is Donald Talbot.

Our regime was voted into

office nine years ago.

And the first order of business

was to deal with the

epidemic of crime

that was plaguing this nation.

The answer was the Purge.

You need some protection tonight?

You need something?

Hey, man, we running out of...

Hey, that Purge tonight,

y'all know what time it is.

Hitting them in the face

ain't gonna work no more.

You need something powerful.

How you doing, buddy?

Use your hands, man. Just use

your hands. Don't even worry about it.

Hey, sweetheart, how you doing?

How you doing?

You gonna need something

for protection tonight?

- No. No, I'm good. I'm good.

- UZI? Beretta?

Look, on the cheap-cheap.

Or a blade to cut your man's throat?

Whatever you need.

We take any kind of payment.


- Hey, Diego.

- What's up, girl? How you doing?

- Good. How you doing?

- Yeah? Everything's great?

No, it's not great. I'm tired...

Oh, it could be better.

Take me up there with you tonight.

Get a little protection.

You know what I'm saying?

- Come on, now.

- I'm cool, Diego. I'm good.

You sure you don't

want no protection?

- Huh?

- No, thanks, Diego.

I'm the man for the job.

You know what I mean?

We've lost our souls

to attain this peace.

We no longer worship

at the altar of Christ,

Muhammad, Yahweh.

We worship at the altar

of Smith & Wesson.

We, the people, know not what we do.


Where'd you find this lunatic?

I saw his protest posters all

around the neighborhood.

He lives here, Papa.

He's just like us.

Now, shush. Please listen.

He's not a lunatic.

The Purge is not about

containing crime to one night,

and cleansing our souls

by releasing aggression.

It's about one thing. Money.

Who dies tonight? The poor.

We can't afford to protect ourselves.

That's enough.

I can't listen to this crap.
