Where the Money Is

Synopsis: Carol Ann MacKay is a fine, popular nurse at a retirement home, and spends her free time with her hunky athletic husband Wayne MacKay, who was the star of her school's football team when she was high school prom queen; he still would do anything for her, including cleaning up the messes her ideas get them in. When legendary bank robber Henry Manning, who had a major stroke in prison, is placed in the home, supposedly having lost all control over his body, she notices he must be in far better condition then he lets appear, and tries everything to find out- when she pushes his wheelchair in a canal at a picnic, Henry gives up. The McKays keep his secret and Henry doesn't actually run in Waynes car as his first impulse was; soon Carol gets his confidence and the two start planning how they three can commit another robbery on an armored money transport, which brings them together. It doesn't go quite according to plan, but they get the loot; however, before the money can be split some big

- Hey.

[Girl Giggling]

- Hey, how come we never

got together before?

Well, because I always

had a boyfriend.

- [Screams]

- You still got one?

Would you still be my boyfriend

if I ditched you at the prom?

Never happen.

- Watch it, your highness.

- Let me drive.

- I wanna drive.

Let me drive.

I got a better place for your hand.

Oh, yeah.

[Air Brakes Hissing]

- [Man] You got it?

- [Man #2] All right.

Easy does it.

[Woman] I wanna have my bath now.

You already had

your bath, Diane.

- Stroke, huh?

- That's what they told me.

- Thanks.

- You're welcome.

I think we can remove

his restraints now.

I know he deserves

the same care as anyone else,

but we're really not set up

to accommodate the state's overflow.

Hey, I just move 'em.


Just, uh, sign here.

Would you please take

[Man On P.A.] For a bargain

shopping trip to the outlet center.

Can you follow this?

How about

a little squeeze?

Man, why'd they have you

chained up like that?


- He's a felon.

- Shh!

Ladies, you should know

better than that. Go on.

There's plenty of time

to visit later.


Not a lot of privacy

around here,

but considering

where you've been,

a little female attention

might be nice.

Right. How 'bout

a little music?

- ## [Country]

- We got rock 'n' roll. We got jazz.

We got country.

We got lots of country here.


- [Whirring]

- How was work?


Got a new guy in.

- Guess what he was?

- What?

A bank robber.

Pretty good one too.

Took them 30 years to catch him.

- The only reason they did

was a blackout.

- Why'd he black out?

He didn't black out.

Denver did.

The whole city.

The emergency generator

kicked in.

The vault shuts, and the next day

when they open the vault...

Are the keys in the car?

- Yeah.

- Okay. See you in the morning.

They found him

in the vault.

It's another beautiful day

in the Pacific Northwest,

and our Oregon forecast

promises sunshine.

[Turns Radio Off]


Thank you.


How 'bout it?

You and me?

[Motorcycle Starting]


If my husband

were alive, hah!

## [Country]

This looks pretty good.

Are you in there

remembering it all,

or did everything

just get erased?

What's his problem?

He had a stroke.

What's your excuse?


Are you mad at me?

You're really gonna

be mad at me?

You said you were gonna

drive me to work.

Damn. Look at you.

You are so beautiful.

You know how beautiful you are?

You always say that to me

when I'm mad at you.

Beats fightin'.

So? Where were you?


It was a work thing.

- Really?

- Yeah.

Drinking with the boss,

that's hard work.
