Bad Idea

Good evening.

Dr. Jennings.

Oh, yes, Doctor.

they are much looking forward to

see your presentation tonight.

Oh, it's nice to hear.

Where is my baby?

Wow, you don't want to shoot me,

Mrs. Jennings.

Shut up! Where is she?

Abby is with my cousin.

My cousin has a celll phone.

If l don't call him every 30 minutes,

he is going to kill her,

as if you would want him to do

I'd just say that you definitely

look prettier than this.

Sit down!!

Look, Mrs. Jennings.

Nothing's going to happen to Abby

as long as nothing happens to me.


You can count on Marvin.

He always does what exactly what he's told.

And it's always that's me to tell him.

What do you want?

You are a smart lady.

You pick up things really quickly.

You do.

You see what we have here

is a kidnapping for ransom.

But see, it's not just any kidnapping.

It's a perfect kidnapping.

And I know that perfect,

because I've done it 4 times before I caught you.

Take me to her, you son of a b*tch!

l know, I know exactly what you're thinking.

I'll tell you what happened to the other 4 kids.

I want you to know every single one of those kids
