# Sitting by the road one day a-playing my guitar
# She came along and listened
# Looked at me understanding I'd travelled far
# Sitting here alone and wishing
# Fly, sparrow, fly
# Away, bye-bye
# So sorry
# Will be I
# Looked up above me to the ribbon skyway
# That's where she goes a-walking
# But there's dust on my shoes and it was always that way
# I know she's not for keeping
# So fly sparrow fly
# Away, bye-bye
# So sorry
# Will be I... #
Where are you going?
-Can I come?
I kind of want to be alone.
Let me come.
-You don't even know where I'm going.
-I don't care.
OK. Just don't bother me.
# One moment love can be most everywhere
# One moment lost forever
# Branch is still shaking as she soars through the air
# But sing one more song for parting... #
You can't even spit!
A cigarette helps.
But don't inhale it, just hold the smoke in your mouth.
Now hold it.
OK, blow it out.
Picks up this bolt - it was, like, pretty big - walks over to Ryan...
..Hang on. I'm sorry.
So, he sticks his hand out and drops it, right?
Smashes the windshield of a passing car!
Didn't anyone ever teach you to knock?
I'll start knocking when you start working.
I'll see you later.
I need you to get dinner for you and Lon tonight. I'm going out.
I can't, April's coming in fifteen minutes.
-I have to get ready.
-She can wait.
I've been with Lonnie all day. I just want to go out.
Fifteen minutes. It won't kill you.
Get chicken for him.
And you can have the rest.
You be OK here on your own?
MUFFLED VOICES OUTSIDE
I told you,
I don't want you sleeping in Tobe's room all the time.
Can't you just...
sleep in your room with the light on.
But I saw someone outside my window.
Well, if there really is someone outside your window,
then come and get me.
You told me not to bother you.
Well, don't if it's just a shadow.
CAR HORN BLARES
I'll be right there!
-You're going to school like that?
-It's spring break.
All you kids ever get are breaks.
No wonder you have no idea about anything. Where are you going?
To the beach.
No, hold on. Hold on.
Well, don't stay out so late again.
-And put a shirt on.
Eighteen?! Who gets big tits when you're eighteen?
It's fucking disgusting.
-I think she looks better.
-She must feel better too.
Of course she feels better, all the boys look at her now.
She's such a snobby bitch.
Does he work here? Oh, my God.
He does work here! Oh, My God!
Check out that fucking hat, man. He's a cowboy!
Oh, my God, what a hick!
-What can I do for y'all?
You can fill it up with unleaded, Tex.
Hey, Tex, you want to check the oil?
Yeah. I'm going to do your windows, too.
Right, that's quite a deal.
Well, we advertise full service, so we got to give full service.
-Are you for real?
Are you for real?
I think so.
Want to give a squeeze?
Yeah! He's real!
So, how's the oil?
This fan belt's a little ratty, though.
How far are y'all going?
Just going to the beach.
Yeah. That's nice. I ain't never been to the beach.
How long have you lived here?
-Not too long.
-You can drive there in less than an hour.
-I don't have a car.
How come I don't have a car?
I don't know, I don't like 'em.
They kinda make you lazy.
It's a pretty funny place to work if you don't like cars.
Ain't that the truth?
Got to make a living.
So what about the fan belt?
Hm, she'll get you there.
Have a good time.
Do you want to come?
With y'all to the beach?
Well, that's mighty kind of you.
I guess you've got to work, though.
Y'know what? Let me see about that.
I invited Tex to the beach.
You've got to be kidding!
He could be a psycho.
I'd like to get my change, if you don't mind.
Was that offer for real?
-Did you get off work?
Well, he said I could go, but if I go, not to come back.
Damn. Why would you want to do that?
I want to see the beach with you.
OK. Then come on.
-So, what's your name?
All right, my full name's Harlan Fairfax Carruthers.
That's definitely full.
What's your name?
-Tobe, short for,
-Well, please to meet y'all.
-Do you smoke?
What's that? Is that wacky weed?
That's OK, I don't touch any of that stuff.
Where are you from?
-From South Dakota.
-South Dakota! I knew some people from South Dakota.
They weren't anything like you.
Well, that's OK, too.
I tell you what, when I woke up this morning, I didn't think I was going to end up looking at the ocean.
You want to go in?
-What, go in there?
No. I like looking at it. I ain't planning on drowning in it.
I'll protect you.
I ain't got the right duds for ocean swimming.
Well, just go in your underwear.
That's what the Mexicans do.
I don't know about that!
Just go in your pants.
These jeans could use a wash, y'know...
-You sure about this?
Yeah! It'll be fun, I promise.
# I got a girl and I call her Sunshine
# Through the air she's dancing in the light
# I say, hey, Sunshine
# Won't you be with me now and for all time?
Hey, aren't we a little far out?
Are you OK?
We ain't going to get pulled out to sea, are we?
Don't worry, I'm not going to let you drown.
Man, that's about as close to forever as I can imagine.
Don't look at that. Just look at me.
# Oh, so pretty, cos she knows me Sunshine
# Catch her laughing down by the water line
# I said, hey, Sunshine
# Won't you be with me now and for all time? #
You should have gone to the beach sooner.
What time is it?
I don't know. Late.
It's early, almost.
I better go.
My dad's going to kill me.
Well, I hope not. Then I couldn't take you out.
You'd want to take me out?
Well, yeah, sure. I mean,
this was fine, but this ain't a proper way to meet.
You're so funny.
Hey. How you doing?
-What's your name?
Glad to meet you, Lonnie.
Oh, hell, I didn't mess that up, did I?
Nah. Just go to crank it up.
Look at that!
God, man, that's, like, classic, isn't it?
-I never seen one of those that worked.
-Are you my dad's friend?
Oh, no, no, I'm...
here to take your sister out.
Out on the town.
That all right with you?
You're Tobe's little brother, yeah?
What, you're, like, eleven or twelve?
Are you thirteen? Really?
-I'll get bigger.
-Oh, yeah. Yeah, yeah.
No, I didn't mean that, uh...
I was smaller than you when I was your age.
I really was. I had an uncle said I was like a tree twig,
I was going to blow away in a strong wind.
Yeah. I was real small.
Till I grew up.
How do I look?
Look at you!
Does that really fit you? I was just guessing at the size.
Yeah, perfect. Do I look pretty in it?
You look...so pretty.
You want to, um...
You want to get a bite to eat, take your little brother,
before we go dancing?
Hey, do you want to go get a burger with us or something? Yeah?
Let's do it.
-Um, this is Harlan.
-Pleased to meet you, sir.
Where did you get that dress?
Harlan got it for me.
No, it's nothing.
It's just I haven't seen you in a dress since you were thirteen.
Well, that's a shame, isn't it, a girl as beautiful as your daughter?
What's your line, Harlan?
I'm in the middle of figuring that out right now.
-But I have a background in ranching.
-Not much ranching round here.
Not that much any more. But anyway,
-you'd be surprised how those skills apply in a lot of other areas.
-You're right, I would be.
We're going to go take Lon out
for a burger, and then we're going to go out.
As long as that's OK with you, sir.
Well, sir, I want to tell you, I got real admiration for your daughter.
She's got a great spirit.
I hope to earn your trust in me.
Who is that guy?
-I met him at the beach.
-You met him at the beach?
-You met him at the beach?
-I got to go!
You worked at a ranch?
Yeah, I sure did.
South Dakota, right?
Yeah. Yeah, back there a little.
Out here more.
There's still ranches out here?
They got a few.
I mean, most of them have been cut up or sold off.
Why? You like animals?
I don't know, if you're interested,
we could go out and check out one of those spreads
up in the north valley.
Not like a dude ranch or nothing like that.
It's like a real working place.
-Can I ask you something?
Is that kid OK?
I don't know, he just seems kinda...
I don't know, like he needs some fresh air or,
I don't know, he needs something.
He's still really scared of the dark.
He has to sleep with the lights on.
I can barely sleep with the lights off.
I watch out for him.
You're a good girl.
No, I mean it.
You have a good heart.
I want to do this with you.
-It makes you so happy.
-I'm happy just being with you.
Not like this.
Hey, man. Hey, here's an open window.
Hey, what are you all doing?
There's John Wayne!
Oh, my God.
Come on in, you'll love my car.
No, no, you've got to love people, not cars. No, hey, I'm serious!
No, see, we don't belong in there.
You belong out here!
-We got places to go, y'dig?
-We got to get off the bus!
-Hey, we got to get off the bus!
-I'm not crazy. I'm only sane man here.
How long does this last?
Just for a little while.
You won't feel it tomorrow.
What are you thinking?
I don't know.
Just all these things that I want to do
but I don't think I'll ever get to do them.
You can do anything you want to do.
You can be anybody you want to be.
You just have to
decide on it
-and then just do it.
-It's like waiting for your life to start.
What starts it, y'know?
Most days, I just want to step outside of my own heart...
..go walk under a sky full of stars...
..and hear nothing but the wind.
And when I do speak, I want it to be with my true voice.
Do you think you talk with your true voice?
I don't know.
How do I know it?
Cos you don't hear other words in your head while you're talking.
The things you really want to be saying.
And you don't say things that don't matter to you.
Do you feel true to yourself?
Not very often.
I do right now.
-Where the fuck you been?
Slept over at April's.
Wait a goddamn minute!
What happened to the guy?
-I was up the whole goddamn night worrying about you!
Well, I'm sure your friend kept your mind off of it.
God damn it.
-I'm not done talking.
Tobe, I'm not... C'mon. Tobe?
-Open the door. C'mon. Open the door.
-No fucking way.
Open the fucking door!
All right, we're going to talk about this tonight.
And you be here when I get home.
-You hear me?
Look, you got something in there that's mine
and I ain't aiming to give it up cheap.
If I come in there, I'm coming in hot.
You got a lot of nerve, shooting at me!
Half of that's mine, and there was plenty for everyone!
Hey, keep it down in there, will ya?
Keep it down yourself.
You think I like listening to your game shows all day?
You got something wrong with you!
It's greed that's going to be the death of you,
cos you're going to...
You're a greedy little pig!
And you're going to squeal like a pig when I come through that door!
All over a few little lumps of ore.
I guess that's just the human folly.
Just up here a piece.
Those the ones?
That's them all right.
Do you like them?
Well, which one do you want?
OK, bud. Hey there. Hey there. Hey there.
# Torn uphill
# To hide away
# Leave the rest
# To run astray
# For you to be mine... #
What do you think?
Yeah, it still is, isn't it?
# Lead me in
# To a-wondering
# For you to be mine. #
Do you think things have a purpose?
What do you mean?
Well, you think everything has something it's supposed to do
That's kind of a nice thought.
I sat here a lot of times.
I looked at this tree.
I wondered if that branch had a purpose.
Maybe it's there to provide shade.
Maybe it's going to get cut down
and make somebody a nice piece of furniture someday.
Or maybe it's supposed to have a swing on it.
I don't know, maybe it's just there so the tree can balance itself.
I lean toward the swing.
It seemed kinda hopeful to me.
And now I see you sitting up there and I know I was right.
Can I watch?
Where's your sister?
I don't know.
Are you still mad at her?
Look, I love your sister.
She gets under my skin sometimes, OK?
What do you love about her?
Well, she's got gumption.
It means, uh,
she got spirit.
She won't take shit.
It drives me crazy, but I know it's good for her.
America is tough on the meek.
The meek shall inherit the earth.
-The meek shall inherit the earth.
Where did you get that crap?
-I heard it on TV.
The meek might inherit a fortune when their relative dies,
but they won't get the earth.
No, the only good thing about the meek is that, uh,
they make it easier on the ones with gumption.
Can you learn gumption?
No, I think you got it or you don't.
Hey, Charlie. Boy, you sure got him in great shape.
He's running all day, he stopped right on the eleventh.
Get off him.
Get off my horse.
Get off the horse!
Do you speak English?
Hey, quit fooling around, Charlie. You're scaring my girl.
You're on my property.
You're on my horse.
If I shot you, I would be well within the law.
Well, I ain't even sure that's technically correct.
Get off the horse, Harlan.
It's OK, sweetheart, we're having some kind of miscommunication here,
but we'll work it out.
I don't know what's wrong with your friend's head there, ma'am,
-but you better talk him down off that horse just as fast as you can.
-Harlan, get down.
Yeah, all right.
But I ain't getting off cos of you and your gun.
I'm just getting off cos my girl here wants me to,
and I'll do anything for her.
Unlike you, Charlie, I got my priorities straight.
I don't give a rat's ass about your priorities.
And stop calling me Charlie.
You know what? You really disappoint me.
After them nice conversations we had, you're going to go and embarrass me in front of my girl?
I oughta give you an ass-kicking just on principle.
Come on, sweet pea, let's get out of here.
-That ain't an accident.
-You want to put the rifle down, sir?
Just put the firearm down, sir.
Thank you, Officer.
Have you lost your mind, Charlie, going pointing guns at your friends?
-These are the thieves!
-You too, sir.
-They're the thieves!
Sir! Everybody, what's going on here?
-They stole my horse.
-We didn't steal anything.
-The horse is there.
-He's right there.
They came on my property and they stole the horse.
-And the guy with the cowboy hat, he just threatened me.
-What the... Bullshit!
All right, just take it easy! Now, where's the horse?
The horse is right there!
The white one was stolen by them.
Wait a minute. Officer, I come here and borrow the horses all the time.
Charlie says it's fine as long as I bring my own gear.
Y'know? And he wasn't here when we happened to show up,
so we borrowed the horse,
we come back, and now he's flipped his lid on me!
This ain't the Old West!
-It's the goddamn Valley!
-You're the one with the gun!
I don't even know the guy, for Christ's sake!
He takes a lot of medication, and sometimes he gets off it, so he gets in a mood like this.
I don't take medication!
You got to take those pills, Charlie.
Gene? And my name is not Charlie!
Gene, get him in the car right now. Now. Let's go.
Have you really met Charlie?
What? Yeah, course. I told you I did.
Cos you can tell me. It's OK.
I mean, he said his name wasn't Charlie.
Oh, that. Well, I mean,
I don't know if he's got another name or something,
but I just always call him Charlie.
Are you mad at me?
I'd say I take care of my critters a hell of a lot better than you take care of your children.
Right. You mind telling me exactly what happened?
Listen, sir, I just want to say, uh,
I understand if you're upset,
but it really had nothing to do with Tobe.
If there's any fault at all, it was definitely mine.
-You don't have to apologise to him, Harlan.
I think it's important to take responsibility for your actions, y'know?
Not really much more you can ask of a person than to take responsibility.
How about not breaking the law with a minor?
Well, yeah, sure.
But that don't apply, cos that wasn't the case.
It really was just a misunderstanding.
Tobe, tell your friend here it's going to take
a little more honesty to win me over.
I don't give a shit if he wins you over. Ow!
CAR HORN BEEPS
See ya, Lonnie.
Hey, thanks a lot, sir.
No! Let me go!
No! You're going to sit here and you're going to talk to me.
I don't want to talk to you! No, no!
-Let me go! No!
-Don't tell me to fuck off!
I'm your fucking goddamn father!
God damn you!
If I catch you near that nutcase again, I'll break his fucking ass!
No, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon. Get the hell back in there!
Tobe, I'm sorry.
-Get the fuck away from me.
-Are you all right?
Get the fuck away!
-What are you doing?
-I'm knocking on your window.
-What are you doing?
-How did your window get broke?
Just an accident.
Did he get rough with you?
Did her say anything about me?
He just said that he didn't want me to see you any more.
You ain't going to listen to him, are you?
Want to come take a walk with me?
There's a mean church service going on down the road.
You never seen spirit like that.
I can't. Just not tonight.
Will I see you tomorrow?
I'm not going to be here.
I got to go with April and her parents
to San Diego for the weekend.
Then I'll come and see you on Monday morning.
Don't come over here, just because of my dad. I'll come and see you.
OK. What time?
10:02 in the morning.
Why so late?
All right, that'll do.
Do you love me?
Yes. Now get.
'Dear Joe, I am sorry to notice how many days have come and gone
'since you have heard word from me.
'Did you think your old cowpoke had rode himself off the edge of the earth?
'Gone but not forgotten, I hope.
'I've meant to write to you for some time but have just been too darn busy,
'what with working so hard and trying to have a little fun now and then on the side.
'I know that you worry about me being lonely out here on my own,
'so you will be pleased to know that I am going with a super gal.
'Her name is October.
'Eight million folks in this town, but she's the one for me.
'She brought me to her family, and they have made me their own,
'and we are stuck together like each other's shadow.'
Hey. It's the twig man.
What's shaking, bud?
You having a good vacation?
Well, is Tobe around?
Has she got back from her trip?
I don't know.
You want to wait for her?
Well, I mean, I was waiting for her.
She was supposed to come by to...
Nah, that's all right. I'm going to be at my spread.
-When she gets home, just tell her to come and see me, OK?
-All right. I'll see ya.
-Do you want to see something?
Wow. That's a hell of a collection.
You know what that is?
-That's a 1921 Colt Peacemaker.
-Yeah. That's his favourite.
That's a beauty.
-You ever shoot any of these with him?
He says I have to be sixteen to touch a gun.
Your dad was in the war, huh?
Yeah, I guess.
Well, you doing anything today?
So, who's your real pa, then, if it ain't Wade?
I don't know.
-I never met him.
-Well, I guess Wade's it, then, huh?
Yeah. I guess he pays for our food and everything.
Nah, it takes more than that to be a pa.
Where's your dad?
Well, he up and left me when I was right about your age.
This right here, that's a single-action Colt 45.
They been making that gun since 1873
and they ain't made a single change to it.
That's how sweet it is.
Everyone you ever heard of - Wyatt Earp, Billy the Kid, all of 'em -
they had a gun just like this.
Now, "single-action" - what that means is
that you can pull that trigger all day and it doesn't do nothing.
You got to thumb that hammer back for it to fire and you got to do it every time.
That makes it a little tricky.
That means in the old days, those gunfighters, they had to draw and cock and shoot all in one motion.
After a while, you start getting a rhythm with it.
You want the last two?
Come on over here. Now, when you're ready,
just thumb her back.
Just let it roll nice and easy.
Be ready. It's going to kick a little the first time.
Now, this time, don't even aim it.
Just point it like you point your finger.
Make it almost like an extension of you, OK?
Look at that!
That's good stuff.
# The silence of
# A falling star
# Lights up the purple sky
# And as I wonder where you are
# I'm so lonesome
# I could cry
HARLAN JOINS IN # I'm so lonesome
# I could cry. #
Boy, that's about my favourite song.
We could sound all right with a little more practice.
Tobe's not here.
And I don't want her spending time with you.
Well, I'm going to have to hear that from her before it's OK with me.
Anyway, I wasn't spending time with Tobe, I was here with Lonnie.
The point is, I don't want you around here. Period.
I know that the circumstances of the other night probably don't sit too well with you.
I'm sure you're feeling like I'm a bad influence.
But I ain't.
No, I got nothing but good intentions.
I just wish you'd accept my apology.
You're the head honcho, sir. I really ain't trying to take that away from you.
OK. It's Harlan, right?
Yes, that's right, Harlan. Harlan Fairfax Carruthers.
OK. Well, Harlan, I know all about you
and I ain't buying what you're selling.
Huh. How do you know so much about me?
Cos it's my job, and I see your kind every day.
-Well, what kind is that?
-you need me to spell it out for you?
-Well, I think you should.
What you are is you're a piece of trailer trash.
You're a nobody who wishes he was a somebody.
But what makes you different is you're willing to do
something stupid to meet your goal.
And that makes you a menace.
And that's why I don't want you around my kids.
Tell me the truth. Does that sound like me to you?
-Shut up and go inside.
-That boy has a right to his opinion of me.
-Go inside, Lonnie.
-No, he's my friend.
-No, he knows me.
You shut the fuck up. You go inside.
-Hey. Hey! Don't yell at him...
-Get the fuck inside!
You better talk to me, mister, cos I am here!
And I ain't nobody. I am a person. And I ain't blowing out of here
-just cos one son of a bitch don't like me.
-If that's the way you want it...
I know I ain't important, but I know how to stand my ground...for love.
Damn! I'm sorry, man.
I'm really sorry.
-No, you should go.
-I can't. I can't do that.
No more. No more.
-He's getting his gun!
-That's OK. That's OK.
That's OK. You don't got to go here. We don't have to do this at all.
Get the hell out of here.
You're setting a terrible example for that boy.
Am I getting through to you?
Yeah, you're getting through.
You're getting through loud and clear.
Do you want to pull it, or do you want me to walk out of here?
I want you to get the fuck out of here.
OK, put her down. I'll leave.
You're a real solid kid. Don't you let anybody tell you different.
You can't threaten my friends with a gun! What right do you have?
-How do I know he's not some kind of pervert?
-You're a fucking bastard!
-Just watch your fucking...
-I'll cuss you if I fucking want to!
-Tobe, Tobe, Tobe, c'mon.
-I love him!
Why can't you just let me love him?
-Hey. Where you been?
You had me all worried. C'mon.
C'mere. C'mon, sit down. Sit down.
I'm really sorry that he did that to you.
Yeah. It's all right.
Y'know, sometimes things like this make things a whole lot clearer.
But he's going off about you, like, kidnapped Lonnie, or some bullshit.
I just don't believe him. He's gotten so crazy.
I had him back before the sun was even down, y'know?
Hey, do you want a doughnut, sweetheart?
-Or a cup of hot chocolate?
-No. No, no, no, no, no, wait.
You really did take him out?
Well, yeah. Yeah. I went looking for you.
I was worried when you didn't show up.
He was there on his own, y'know? He didn't have nothing to do.
I felt bad for him.
I took him out to that wash and we just popped a few cans.
You took him shooting?!
-Why would you do that?
-He was all alone.
You should've seen his face. I felt so bad for him.
That's not the point!
You knew that would piss my dad off!
I thought I was going to have him back before he got home, but...
Harlan, you can't just do things like that.
Now it's going to be even harder for me to see you.
..Are you happy living in that house with Wade?
We got to get you out of there.
-We got to get you out of there. You and Lonnie both.
We'll take you somewhere else.
Harlan, no, just stop being so...
-I'm... Well, how am I being?
-Just be cool, OK?
I'm cool as can be.
..Let's just not see each other for a while.
No! No, I don't want to do that.
Just until he calms down a little bit.
-Well, when is that going to be?!
-I don't know!
Hey! Hey, hey, hey, where are you going? Don't go. Don't go.
Harlan, I have to go home.
Look, everything's going to be fine.
I'm going to figure something out, OK? I promise.
'What's your line? What's your line?'
'I have a background in...'
'I'm a fucking cowboy, what's your line?'
But really, I'm an Indian.
Yeah, I'm an Indian.
Last of the Mohicans.
Why, what's your line?
What's your line...
'I see you're a screw head.'
Yeah, screw head.
Yeah. No, that's what we called you.
Oh, you come from a long line of screw heads?
'I come from a long line of...
Shut up, man.
You see that? That's how it's going to look coming at you.
Yeah, who's a nobody now?
Let me in, Harlan! Harlan?
Harlan, you in here?
-What's up, Renee?
-Just tell me that is not a bullet hole in my window.
Hm... No, I guess it is.
Well, have you just lost your fucking mind, shooting at windows out here?
Renee? Go to your room!
Both of you, go to your room!
Are you fucking crazy?
What? It was just an accident, Renee. I'm sorry.
I don't care what it was.
Now, Harlan, you know I like you, but you never give me any respect, so you have got to go.
Don't think about it, don't ponder it,
don't roll it around in that brain of yours,
just pack up your stuff and go.
I'm serious, Harlan.
I'm getting my fucking shit, Renee! All right?
End of the line.

-Can I help you?
-Uh, maybe. I'm looking for someone.
Who are you looking for?
I'm looking for a friend of mine.
You're disturbing our prayers, and you must leave.
-It's not him. OK!
OK, OK! Take your hands off me.
Don't push me, big fella. Don't push me.
Cut it out! Oh, come on!
Come on! This is no way to treat a person!
"It's been a long time, Joe.
"Will you be surprised to hear from me?
"If we passed each other on the street, we might not even recognise each other to say hello.
"Maybe that's happened, without our even sensing it."
"I used to wonder why you did what you did, what made you leave,
"but I think I see now what you were looking for.
"I hope you see that, in my own way, I'm after the same things."

Hey, sweet pea.
-What are you doing?
Where have you been?
I've been around. I just...
I had a few things I had to do.
I was really worried about you. I didn't know where you were.
I thought you didn't want to see me for a while, so I...
I thought I should leave you alone.
You didn't have to disappear.
I was just really upset when I said that.
-Are you sure?
You ain't still mad at me now?
Oh, that's all that matters, then.
As long as we're sticking together.
Are you OK?
I know you didn't want me coming round here, but, I don't know, I really needed to see you.
You know, I wanted to talk to you about things.
How did you even get in?
I thought I heard you round the side, so I went round, and there was a door open.
I didn't see your dad's truck here, so I thought I could surprise you or something.
-Let's go for a walk.
-No, no. No.
C'mere. C'mon. No, no, c'mon.
C'mon, we ain't got time.
What's going on, Harlan?
What do you mean?
Why is my bag out?
Cos we're going to get out of here.
What are you talking about?
Like I said, I told you, I would figure this out. I did. Look.
Look, it took me a little while, but I got some real dough together.
This'll take us a long way, and then we can get set up and send for Lonnie or whatever you want to do.
Whatever you want to do, we can do it now.
I packed a few things.
I didn't know exactly what you would want, but I just got excited. I got seven of everything.
I couldn't find seven of your bras. I mean...
I put your dress in, but I'm sure there's stuff you're going to want, little things I don't know about.
Sweetheart, what do you say? Come on.
OK, Harlan, my dad's going to be here any second, so let's just go right now. OK?
No, no. No, no, no, we got time. We got time.
Let's get our stuff, cos we ain't going to have another chance.
No, come on. Put this back. Please.
No, no. Hey, whoa. What are you doing?
-If my dad sees this, he's going to kill me, OK?
-He's not going to kill you.
Sweetheart, we're going to be a long way away before he figures this out.
-We'll deal with that part later.
-I told you the other day that I didn't want to go away.
-No, that wasn't you talking, though. That...
-Who was it, then?
That was someone else's voice talking through you. That was your fear.
I don't even know what the hell you're talking about, OK? So I think you need to go.
October, listen to me. Sweetheart? I know you're scared, but we ain't going to get another chance.
Now, you got to look down inside you and listen to your true heart.
-Listen to what it's telling you.
-You know what? This is my true heart, and my true voice,
-and I want you to go, OK? Go!
-Don't holler at me!
There is a need to holler! You're not listening to me! And you need to get out of here!
What is wrong with you, Harlan?
What's wrong with you?
Sweet pea, I didn't...
Honey, can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Just keep breathing.
'911. What is your emergency?
'911. What is your emergency?'
Anyone home here?
Somebody help my daughter!
Somebody! Help my daughter!
Do you have any other firearms in the house?
I keep them all under lock and key.
Except for the one.
He must have broken into it.
The case wasn't broken into.
Well, look, he got it somehow.
OK... Did she say anything?
She was already unconscious.
What about your son?
He came home after we left.
-Does he have access to your guns?
His fingerprints were on the gun.
Could have been an accident.
It wasn't an accident.
Well, nobody else has seen this cowboy person, Wade.
KNOCKING AT WINDOW
Tobe got shot.
Yeah, I know it.
-I got hit too.
-Who did it?
She didn't say nothing to nobody?
She's in a coma.
It was Wade.
I came over here to see her.
I wanted to say goodbye, cos I was going away for a while.
She wanted to come with me, and...we were talking about it,
and we didn't hear him come home.
He come at me with that gun.
Tobe got in-between us, and he shot her.
She was trying to protect me, and he shot her.
What kind of a son of a bitch would do a thing like that?
He'd've shot me too, but I jumped out that window.
Where did you get shot?
Does it hurt?
No, it just went through the skin.
I'll be all right.
They found my fingerprints on the gun.
I have to talk to the police tomorrow morning.
Twig, I want you to listen to me.
I think that you should go on and get some of your things together
-and you should come with me right now.
-Yes, you can.
Y'know, sooner or later, those cops are going to figure out
it was your dad that done this thing.
And when they do, they're going to lock him away.
Then they're going to take you
-and they're going to put you with another family.
-No, they won't.
Yes, they will.
That's the truth.
You're going to end up a ward of the state, bud.
Do you know what that means?
It's about the worst thing that can happen to a kid.
And I don't want that to happen to you.
And if you want to come with me, I'll take you out of here.
We'll go up to my hide-out for a while.
When Tobe gets better, we'll come down here and we'll get her too.
What do you say, bud?
You want to go with me?
Go and throw a few of your duds in a bag.
Get me a blanket.
I'll meet you out in the back alley, OK? C'mon.
C'mon. Come on.
Mr Somers? She's up.
Well, you've been passed out.
Well, it's about as high up as you can get around here.
Are you crying, bud?
Don't ever be sorry for crying.
Ain't no shame in that.
I try not to cry in front of someone
if I think they're against me, but that's about it.
Is Tobe going to be OK?
Is that what you're worrying about?
Yeah, she is. She's going to be fine.
-What's going on?
-He's not here.
Lonnie? Hey, Lonnie? Lon?
A guy in Santa Clarita spotted him.
His name's Martin Lassiter. He's a local kid from Reseda.
Did a year in Chino for robbery.
-It's just up here.
Hey, bud. C'mon, let's take a walk. I want to show you something.
Come on, just trust me. C'mon.
You hold on to that for a while.
Where are you going?
I'm right here.
I ain't going anywhere.
Are you there?
Yeah, I'm right with you.
Now, you're OK. Just work your way back to that fire.
-What was that?
-It's just another scared creature, like us.
Move, but don't move like fear moves.
Move like a panther. Move confident...
then you will be.
C'mon! Come on!
No, no, no, don't shoot. Lonnie? Lon!
Well, they sure ain't going to find us, cos I don't even know where we are.
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Where are we?
Even that horse ain't too happy with me and I don't blame him.
No, he's fine.
Well, this sure ain't like I painted it, Lon.
I'm sorry about that.
No, that's fine.
Y'know when there were still real cowboys out here?
They called each other "partner", and they meant it.
They rode a hard trail together.
Y'know what, Lon?
We got to get some sleep.
HELICOPTER BLADES WHIR
-It's awfully nice.
-Yes, it is.
Town ain't a real town, till it has a dance.
Would you take a turn with me?
I hardly feel I have the right to ask ladies such as yourself to dance.
Well, I'm asking you.
-Come on. Yeah.
-Bud, I think that's yours.
Let's make room for our new marshal and his lady fair!
Duty calls, huh?
I'll catch you later.
-Don't take another step!
-Martin, take it easy.
You take it easy. Come on, twig, come on down.
-Untie that horse.
-Lonnie, get out of there.
Wade, you take another step toward that boy and I'll put the next one in your head, and I ain't fooling.
Look, nobody's going to shoot anybody. We're going to put our guns down and talk.
No, you're going to put your gun down. Do it right now!
Thumb and the finger, real slow. You too!
Drop that belt!
Go on, drop it!
-Go on, Lonnie, untie the horse.
-Lonnie, he shot Tobe.
You shut your fucking mouth!
-The girl is not dead, Martin.
-You can tell the police all the lies you want, Wade,
but you and me both know it was you that killed her.
-You're out of your fucking mind!
-Lonnie knows it's true, too. He's seen the same things that I seen.
Come on, Lonnie! Come on! Come on!
-Are you OK?
-Yeah. Take that.
Press it against there. Press it right there.
C'mon, press it. Press it. We got to get off this ridge.
Hey. Hey, we got to get out of here.
Come on, get me on my feet.
-You all right?
-Yeah. Go on. Go on!
You going to be all right?
I hope so. I don't want to die in a place like this.
I don't like it in here.
Hey... (Hey, look out there.)
-What's he doing?
-He's just standing there.
He's going to give us away.
You got to get him out of there.
Bring him around back and put him in the garage.
No, hey, look at me.
You can do this. Go on. Go on.
Go on, you can do it.
He was scared. But he's OK now.
No, Lonnie, wait.
Lonnie, he shot your sister. Listen to me. He shot Tobe.
-Lonnie, he shot her.
I'm not. She'll tell you.
Listen to me. She's OK.
What do we say?
Don't say anything.
Just think it.
