JUDY BAUMER'S GOING AS A TWIRLER.

BUT SHE'S SO FAT.

I'D RATHER GO AS CINDERELLA OR PETER PAN.

PETER PAN'S A BOY. TINKER BELL'S A GIRL.

PHILLIP COULD GO AS PETER PAN,

EXCEPT YOU GOT TO FLY.

PHILLIP COULD GO AS A BUMP ON A LOG.

WHY CAN'T WE JUST GO ONCE?

'CAUSE WE JUST CAN'T, O.K.?

OUR PERSONAL BELIEFS LIFT US TO A HIGHER PLACE.

[DOORBELL RINGS]

I'LL GET IT!

TRICK OR TREAT!

YOU PUNK THIEF.

Damn it.

Damn if that old man ain't right.

Ha ha ha ha ha.

OH! GOOD ONE!

YOU AND ME MUST BE LIVING RIGHT, BUTCHIE BOY.

LET'S GET SOMETHING STRAIGHT.

I DON'T LIKE YOU.

WRONG NEIGHBORHOOD FOR A LINCOLN.

HEY, THERE'S A BUICK.

DON'T WANT A BUICK.

I WANT A FORD.

FORDS LEAK OIL.

BESIDES, DADDY, A CAR'S A CAR.

TAKE THE BUICK.

AS SOON AS WE CROSS THE STATE LINE,

I'LL DO JUST THAT.

I'M TIRED OF WAITING AROUND.

I'M GOING TO GO CHECK DOWN THE BLOCK.

FOR A FORD.

GO WAKE UP YOUR SISTERS.

I TAKE MINE FRIED.

[GASP]

[DOG BARKS OUTSIDE]

A LITTLE ON THE BLAND SIDE.

POUR SOME OF THAT KETCHUP, WOULD YOU?

SHUT YOUR MOUTH!

PICK IT UP AND BRING IT OVER TO ME.

POINT IT AT ME.

POINT IT.

NOW SAY, "STICK 'EM UP."

ST-STICK 'EM UP.

PERFECT.

[DOOR OPENS]

NO!

PUT THE GUN DOWN, OLD-TIMER.

PUT IT DOWN.

YOU COULDN'T HIT ME ANYWAY.

PROBABLY SHOOT THE BOY.

[TELEPHONE RINGS]

LEAVE IT BE.

MAMA?

IT'S ALL RIGHT.

[RING]

ARE YOU DEAF?

SET IT ON THE GROUND.

[RING]

PUT IT DOWN.

SET IT DOWN! DOWN.

[RING]

SH-SHUT UP!

I VOTE WE TAKE HER WITH US.

NO.

HOW THE HELL ARE WE GETTING OUT OF HERE

WITHOUT A HOSTAGE?

THE WHOLE NEIGHBORHOOD'S AWAKE!

WE'LL TAKE THE BOY.

NO!

NO!

NO!

OH!

[GLADYS SCREAMING]

AIN'T YOU FOLKS EVER HEARD OF SLEEPING IN?

[ENGINE STARTS]

YEE-HA!

I GOT IT, SIR.

YEAH.

PRESS HAS BEEN WAITING ALMOST AN HOUR, RED.

I HEAR YA.

YEAH, I HEAR YA.

I UNDERSTAND.

I UNDERSTAND.

YEAH.

I'M HERE. I'M--I'M JUST LISTENIN'.

YEAH, O.K.

YO COMPRENDO. ADIOSITO.

WHAT DID HE SAY?

WHO?

THE GOVERNOR, RED.

OH, HE REMINDED ME THAT IT'S, UH, ELECTION YEAR.

HI.

HI.

I, UH...

I HOPE YOU DON'T DRINK BEFORE NOON.

OH, NO, I DON'T.

THE LAST ONE WE HAD HERE,

IT SEEMED LIKE SHE WAS ON A LIQUID DIET.

THE LAST WHAT?

SECRETARY.

ANNIE MONROE.

WELL, UM, I BELIEVE YOU HAVE ME CONFUSED.

I'M HERE FROM HUNTSVILLE.

I WAS ASSIGNED BY THE GOVERNOR.

ADLER, WHAT IS THIS?

SEEMS LIKE IT RINGS A BELL.

I THINK THEY SENT SOMETHING OVER ABOUT HER

THIS MORNING.

WHO SENT SOMETHING?

THE GOVERNOR, RED.

I'M SALLY GERBER,

CRIMINOLOGIST WITH THE STATE PRISON SYSTEM.

UH, TOM ADLER, TEXAS RANGERS.

HI. UH...

WELL, UH, IT'S A RELATIVELY NEW PROCEDURE.

I WAS ASSIGNED BY THE GOVERNOR TO--

"WORK WITH STATE LAW OFFICIALS

"IN ALL AFFAIRS OF PENAL MATTERS

COINCIDING WITH THE STATE POLICE."

THIS DOESN'T SAY ANYTHING ABOUT ESCAPE--

IT INCLUDES PAROLE, WORK-RELEASE,

AND PENAL ESCAPE SITUATIONS.

[INTERCOM BUZZES]

WE'LL BE RIGHT THERE, MARGE.

THEY'RE GETTING ANTSY, RED.

YOU SCHEDULED IT.

UH, THE IDEA IS THAT AN UNDERSTANDING

OF THE PARTICULAR BEHAVIORAL CASE HISTORY

SHOULD, IN PAROLE SITUATIONS,

HELP THE SUBJECT TO AVOID...

HABITUAL TRAPS

AND, IN PENAL ESCAPE SITUATIONS,

COULD CONVERSELY IDENTIFY

THOSE SELF-SAME TRAPS

AS AN AID TO APPREHENSION.

LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING, MISS GERBER.

SALLY IS FINE.

LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING, SALLY.

THIS IS NOT A PENAL ESCAPE SITUATION.

THIS HAPPENS TO BE A MANHUNT,

AND NO TALKING IN CIRCLES IS GOING TO FIX THAT.

AND WHAT WILL?

US HAVING A NOSE LIKE A BLUE TICK.

THAT'S A MEDULLA WITH AN ANTENNA

AND A LOT OF COFFEE.

SO WHAT DO YOU THINK?

LOOKS GOOD, LOOKS GOOD.

GOVERNOR SPECIAL-ORDERED IT

SO STATE OFFICIALS AND DIGNITARIES

COULD RIDE IN THE PARADE IN DALLAS.

PRESIDENT KENNEDY'S COMING.

YEAH, SO I HEARD.

LATEST TECHNOLOGY.

GOT AN OVERSIZED ENGINE...

FULL KITCHEN... SLEEPING QUARTERS.

GOT ROOM FOR GUN RACKS,

STOVE, FRIDGE, THE WORKS.

EVEN GOT A HOT-LINE PHONE TO THE GOVERNOR'S OFFICE.

A FINE PIECE OF MACHINERY.

AS SOON AS IT COMES BACK FROM DALLAS,

IT'LL BE AT YOUR REQUISITION DISPOSAL.

IT'S PERFECT FOR LOTS OF SITUATIONS.

IT'S A HEADQUARTERS ON WHEELS.

WE'LL TAKE IT.

UH, CHIEF...

STOP TAKING PICTURES.

THE GOVERNOR'S GOT TO RIDE IT

IN THE CAMPAIGN PARADE TOMORROW.

THE GOVERNOR HIMSELF

GAVE THIS MANHUNT TOP PRIORITY.

B-BUT, RED, YOU GOT TO BELIEVE ME...

WHAT'S YOUR NAME?

I'M DICK SUTTLE. I'M THE DRIVER.

NOT ANYMORE. BRADLEY?

THIS MAN STAYS WITH THIS VEHICLE

HEH HEH HEH HEH.

WHY'D HE TAKE THE KEYS?

SO I WON'T LEAVE HIM.

OH, YEAH.

I PROBABLY COULDN'T HAVE HEARD HIM ANYWAY.

GODDAMN EAR'S STILL BLEEDING.

YOU EVER SHOT A GUN BEFORE, BOY?

POW!

KNOCK YOU ON YOUR ASS.

QUIET, MISTER.

NAW...

YOU AIN'T NEVER SHOT NO GUN BEFORE.

LIVING WITH THREE SPLIT-TAILS...

NO DADDY AROUND.

YOU'LL PROBABLY GROW UP QUEER.

YOU KNOW THAT.

NOW...

I'M GOING TO LEAN UP HERE...

REAL SLOW AND EASY.

O.K.?

JUST SO'S WE CAN TALK.

THERE WE GO.

NOW WE CAN HAVE A REAL MAN-TO-MAN.

YOU ARE A MAN NOW, AIN'T YA?

WILL THIS DO IT FOR YA?

YEAH. THIS AND A CARTON OF THEM LUCKY STRIKES.

SAY, THOSE ARE SOME

REAL CUTE LITTLE UNDERWEARS

YOU GOT ON THERE, BOY.

YOUR MAMA SEWED YOUR NAME IN 'EM?

HMM?

LET'S SEE WHAT YOU GOT DOWN THERE.

KIND OF PUNY, AIN'T IT?

THE HAND IS QUICKER THAN THE EYE.

SON OF A BITCH!

HELL'S BELLS, NO SHELLS.

COME ON UP HERE A LITTLE CLOSER, BOY.

THOSE .38 SHELLS YOU GOT UP THERE?

YEAH.

GIVE ME A BOX.

AAH! GOD DAMN IT!

JESUS!

HERE, BOY.

ALL'S FORGIVEN, BOY.

YOU BEST COME HERE, BOY.

YOU KNOW I'M GOING TO FIND YOU.

HEY, BOY.

YOU BEST HOPE I DON'T FIND YOU.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO, HIT ME WITH IT?

BUT YOU AND ME ARE FRIENDS.

[GUNSHOT]

YOU GOT A PHONE?

NO.

GO INSIDE, LIE DOWN TILL WE'RE GONE.

WELL, YOU COMING?

GET IN.

RED, I GOT A SPOT ON THEM.

STORE OUTSIDE OF BEN HUR,

ABOUT 50 MILES FROM HERE.

YEAH.

WELL, MOVE THAT ROADBLOCK ON 288 50 MILES NORTH.

FIGURE THEY GOT THAT FAR?

HELL, I DON'T KNOW,

BUT THEY DON'T KNOW, EITHER.

THEY'RE JUST HAPPY TO BE OUT.

IT'S JUST A HIGH-SPEED SUNDAY DRIVE FOR THEM.

SUNDAY DRIVE-- I LIKE THAT.

I NEVER HEARD YOU USE THAT ONE BEFORE.

SOMETHING BOTHERING YOU?

OH, UH... IT'S PERHAPS PREMATURE,

BUT, UM, DO YOU HAVE AN AUXILIARY ROADBLOCK PLAN

FOR WHEN THEY SPLIT UP?

WHAT MAKES YOU SO SURE THEY'RE GOING TO SPLIT UP?

IF YOU GOT SOMETHING IN YOUR CRAW,

SPIT IT OUT.

WELL, THEIR SITUATION IS ONE OF ACCOMMODATION,

SO I DON'T THINK THEY'LL BE TOGETHER LONG.

HAYNES AND PUGH ARE OPPOSITES, RIGHT?

HAYNES IS A CRIMINAL'S CRIMINAL--

ARMED ROBBERY, MAN-ON-MAN CONFRONTATION.

PUGH, ON THE OTHER HAND, HAS A RAP SHEET

LITTERED WITH MANSLAUGHTER, WELL, YOU NAME IT.

THEY'LL SPLIT SOON.

WHAT ABOUT THE HOSTAGES?

THEY GOING TO FLIP A COIN

TO SEE WHO KEEPS WHO?

IT'S HAPPENED BEFORE.

EITHER WAY, IT'S A DILEMMA

THEY'LL ADDRESS SOON.

THAT'S WHY WE GOT TO ADDRESS IT NOW.

WELL, WE DON'T HAVE A DILEMMA,

AND NEITHER DO THEY.

THEY'LL SIMPLY GET RID OF ONE HOSTAGE

AND KEEP THE OTHER,

IF THEY HAVEN'T DONE SO ALREADY.

COMMAND, PUT YOUR ROADBLOCK ON 288 NORTH

ABOUT 50 MILES.

ROGER. ROADBLOCK 288, 50 MILES.

THAT'S RIGHT. 50 MILES.

UH-HUH.

WE NEED TO TALK, CHIEF GARNETT.

YOU CAN CALL ME RED.

RED.

WHY ARE YOU SO HELL-BENT ON EMBARRASSING ME?

I'M ONLY HELL-BENT ON ONE THING--

YOU GET TO KNOW ME A LITTLE BETTER,

YOU'LL FIND A STRONG BACKSIDE

AND A GOOD SENSE OF HUMOR GOES FAR.

I HAVE A FINE SENSE OF HUMOR,

BUT I WON'T BE YOUR STRAIGHT MAN

SO YOU CAN PLAY HERO TO SOME MORONS

WHO THINK YOU'RE SOME HILLBILLY SHERLOCK HOLMES.

OH, SHIT. OOH, DAMN.

YOU KNOW, ARTHUR GODFREY SAID

THIS STUFF KEEPS YOU YOUNG,

BUT I'M NOT SURE IT'S WORTH IT.

SO THAT'S MY ANSWER?

THIS YOUR FIRST TIME IN THE FIELD?

I THOUGHT SO.

WHAT WAS YOU EXPECTING, ANYWAY?

WHAT DO YOU THINK I AM,

SOME DUMB SCHOOLGIRL

WHO'S WANDERED INTO THE BOYS' LOCKER ROOM?

WELL, YOU'RE WRONG. I DON'T MEAN TO BOAST,

BUT I HAPPEN TO BE

ONE OF THE TWO MOST INTELLIGENT PEOPLE

INVOLVED IN THIS FIASCO.

THAT'S NOT WHAT I ASKED.

I ASKED WHAT YOU'RE EXPECTING.

WELL, I EXPECTED TO BE ALLOWED

TO DO THE JOB ASSIGNED TO ME BY THE GOVERNOR.

YOU KNOW, I LIKE THE GOVERNOR.

HE AND I GO QUAIL-HUNTING AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR.

BUT HE AND I KNOW THAT WIN, LOSE, OR DRAW,

THIS IS MY SHIP. YOU UNDERSTAND?

OH, YEAH, I GOT THAT.

YOU KNOW WHAT THAT IS? THAT'S ANARCHY.

I CALL THAT HORSESHIT, TO USE A COWBOY COLLOQUIALISM.

NO, I'LL TELL YOU WHAT'S HORSESHIT, MISSY.

HORSESHIT IS RESPONSIBILITY.

THAT'S THE GUY WHO HAS THE SLEEPLESS NIGHTS,

WHO HAS THE ULCERS.

IF THIS THING GOES BLOODY, AND IT MIGHT,

THE GOVERNOR LOSES A FEW VOTES.

ME? I'M THE ONE WHO...

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT.

YOU SEE ME MAKING A WRONG MOVE,

YOU GO AHEAD AND SPEAK UP.

I MIGHT NOT AGREE WITH YOU, BUT I'LL LISTEN.

AS FOR STEPPING ON PEOPLE'S TOES AND WOUNDED PRIDE,

I'LL BUY ALL THE DRINKS WHEN THIS IS OVER.

BUT NOW I GOT BETTER THINGS TO THINK ABOUT.

THAT FAIR?

MM-HMM. YEAH.

GOOD.

SO WHO'S THE OTHER ONE?

OTHER ONE?

YEAH. IF YOU'RE ONE OF THE TWO BRAINS,

WHO'S THE OTHER ONE?

HAYNES. WE TESTED HIM IN PRISON.

THANK YOU.

ARE YOU GOING TO SHOOT ME?

NO. HELL, NO.

ME AND YOU ARE FRIENDS.

IF I WAS CHOOSING A RUNNING BUDDY,

I'D TAKE YOU OVER HIM ANY DAY OF THE WEEK.

GOT A POSITIVE I.D.?

YES, SIR. ONLY THE BOY IS HOSTAGE.

ABOUT FIVE MINUTES AGO, WE FOUND THIS HERE.

LEAST NOW WE KNOW WHO'S IN CHARGE.

HEY, HAVE YOU EVER RIDDEN IN A TIME MACHINE BEFORE?

WELL, SURE, YOU HAVE.

WHAT DO YOU THINK THIS IS?

A CAR.

YOU'RE LOOKING AT THIS THING BASS-ACKWARDS.

THIS IS A 20th-CENTURY TIME MACHINE.

I'M THE CAPTAIN,

AND YOU'RE THE NAVIGATOR.

OUT THERE, THAT'S THE FUTURE.

AND BACK THERE,

WELL, THAT'S THE PAST.

IF LIFE'S MOVING TOO SLOW

AND YOU WANT TO PROJECT YOURSELF INTO THE FUTURE,

JUST STEP ON THE GAS RIGHT HERE.

SEE?

IF YOU WANT TO SLOW HER DOWN,

HELL, YOU JUST STEP ON THE BRAKE HERE,

AND YOU SLOW HER DOWN.

THIS IS THE PRESENT, PHILLIP.

ENJOY IT WHILE IT LASTS.

YES, SIR,

WE'RE TIME-TRAVELING THROUGH TEXAS.

WE GOT TO FIND US A FORD.

MY DADDY ALWAYS DROVE FORDS.

YOU KNOW THAT?

NOW, THAT'S AN INTERCOM SPEAKER SYSTEM.

YOU CAN GET AND GIVE INFORMATION

TO AND FROM THE REAR OF THE VEHICLE.

UH-HUH. HOW'S IT WORK?

WELL, YOU PRESS THE POWER BUTTON.

BUT IF YOU GOT THE VOLUME TURNED UP...

[LOUD STATIC]

OH, BRADLEY. DANG IT!

YOU WILL BLOW THE SPEAKERS.

ALL RIGHT, I GOT IT. THERE.

THAT OUGHT TO PUT HIS PECKER IN A SLING.

SORRY ABOUT THAT.

DICK HUMOR. UNIQUE.

SHOULDN'T THESE BE ROADBLOCKED AS WELL?

IN A PERFECT WORLD, MISS GERBER,

WE'D ALL LOCK ARMS AND THRASH THE BUSHES

UNTIL HE TURNED UP.

IN A PERFECT WORLD, THINGS LIKE THIS

WOULDN'T HAPPEN IN THE FIRST PLACE, RIGHT?

THE LOCALS ARE HEADING OUT.

YOU WANT TO FOLLOW?

NO, NO. WE'LL JUST KEEP CRUISING.

HE'LL TURN UP EVENTUALLY.

O.K., PHILLIP, WE'RE GOING TO DO SOME CAR SHOPPING.

YOU EVER PLAY COWBOYS AND INDIANS?

SEE THAT FORD SEDAN?

I WANT YOU TO SNEAK ON OVER THERE

LIKE AN INDIAN AND TAKE A PEEK.

SEE IF THE KEYS IS IN IT.

DON'T HAVE TO IF YOU DON'T WANT TO,

BUT I'D APPRECIATE IT,

YOU BEING THE NEW NAVIGATOR AND ALL.

HEY, PHILLIP. Phillip!

CHECK FOR A RADIO, TOO.

IT'S GOT KEYS AND A RADIO. I CHECKED.

GOOD MAN.

CAN WE STOP AT THE FILLING STATION?

WHAT FOR?

NUMBER ONE.

THIS HERE'S NATURE, PHILLIP.

WHY DON'T YOU JUST...

PHILLIP, GET IN THE CAR!

JUMP!

AAH!

GOD DAMN, BOY.

HOW MANY RCs YOU DRINK ANYWAY?

FOUR.

[LAUGHS]

IF WE GET A CLEAN SHOT, CAN WE TAKE IT?

THE LOCALS WANT TO KNOW IF THEY GET A CLEAN SHOT,

SHOULD THEY TAKE IT?

NO.

I DON'T WANT ANY HALF-ASSED SERGEANT YORK

TAKING A POTSHOT WITH A DEER RIFLE.

ONLY THING TO DO. HE'S GOT THE BOY.

I GUESS YOU FIGURE HE'LL JUST GIVE UP.

MAYBE. MAYBE NOT.

WELL, NOW, THERE'S A SAFE BET.

I'LL GIVE YOU A SAFE BET.

HE'S BETTER OFF NOW THAN HE WAS.

THAT THIRD EYE PUGH WAS SPORTING

GOING TO THE MORGUE SPEAKS OTHERWISE.

THEN WHY NOT JUST SHOOT TO KILL?

OH, NOW, THERE'S A BRAINSTORM.

IT IS HALF OFF.

HIGHWAY 16, 4 MILES SOUTH OF DESDEMONA.

COMPLICATING LAW ENFORCEMENT ATTEMPTS TO APPREHEND HIM,

HAYNES IS BELIEVED TO HAVE

AN 8-YEAR-OLD BOY WITH HIM AS HOSTAGE.

AUTHORITIES HAVE FOUND THE SLAIN BODY OF...

WE'LL GET IT NEXT TIME. WAIT IN THE CAR, SON.

AND THE INITIAL HOSTAGE TAKEN BY HAYNES

AND HIS FELLOW ESCAPEE TERRY PUGH.

THEY TEND TO HALF-FINISH A ROAD

AND THEN START ANOTHER ONE.

IF ANYBODY KNOWS THEM BACK ROADS, IT'S RED.

O.K.

SO... I'M ROBERT HAYNES,

AND EVERYBODY CALLS ME BUTCH.

I WAS BORN IN AMARILLO

BUT GREW UP IN THE FRENCH QUARTER IN NEW ORLEANS.

WHAT'S SHE DOING, RED?

I KILLED A MAN WHEN I WAS 8.

HOW'D YOU KILL HIM?

SHOT HIM WITH A .38 SPECIAL.

THERE WAS ALWAYS ONE LYING AROUND THE DANCE HALL.

THAT'S WHAT THEY CALLED IT, BUT IT WAS A WHOREHOUSE.

THAT'S WHERE WE LIVED.

WHAT'D THE AUTHORITIES DO?

THE VICTIM WAS WANTED BY THE LOCALS,

SO THE WHOLE THING

GOT SWEPT UNDER THE CARPET CAJUN STYLE.

THEY DIDN'T EVEN SEND HIM TO THE JUVIE?

PUT ME IN SCHOOL.

I WAS THREE YEARS BEHIND, BUT I CATCH UP.

SOUNDS LIKE THINGS ARE GOING PRETTY GOOD NOW.

YEAH, THEY ARE FOR A WHILE.

THEN WHEN I'M 12, MAMA DIES.

WELL, WHAT HAPPENED?

DELILAH JANE HAYNES HUNG HERSELF

IN THE BATHROOM OF THE WHOREHOUSE.

POSTMORTEM CHECK UNCOVERED LAST-STAGE SYPHILIS.

WELL, WHERE'S YOUR FATHER?

NOBODY KNOWS WHERE HE IS.

DITCHED WHEN I WAS 6.

HE WAS A SMALL-TIME FELON.

HE POPPED BACK UP AFTER MAMA DIED,

AND HE'D JUST BEEN PUT ON PAROLE.

SO HE MOVES US BACK TO AMARILLO.

YEAR LATER, I'M BACK IN TROUBLE.

YEAH. KILL SOMEBODY ELSE?

UH-UH.

SAW A FORD COUPE I COULDN'T RESIST,

SO I TOOK HER FOR A SPIN.

HELL, THAT AIN'T NO BIG DEAL.

THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT,

BUT THE JUDGE DIDN'T.

HE GAVE ME FOUR YEARS IN GATESVILLE.

TOUGHEST JUVIE FARM IN TEXAS.

THAT'S WHERE THE SON OF A BITCH LEARNED TO BE A CRIMINAL.

WE'VE SEEN THAT BEFORE, HAVEN'T WE, RED?

GEE, BUTCH, WHY DON'T YOU JUST TELL US

WHERE YOU'RE HEADED

AND SAVE US THE TROUBLE OF HUNTING YOU DOWN?

NOW, SEE? YOU MISSED IT,

'CAUSE WHERE I'M GOING

ISN'T NEAR AS IMPORTANT AS WHY I'M GOING THERE.

AW, SHIT, 'CAUSE I'M RUNNING AND THEY'RE CHASING.

I JUST AS SOON GO NORTH AS SOUTH AS EAST AS WEST.

THAT'S A FUN LITTLE PARLOR GAME,

BUT RIGHT NOW BUTCH HAYNES

DOESN'T HAVE THE SLIGHTEST IDEA WHERE HE'S HEADED.

I WANT YOU TO POINT YOUR FINGER

ALONG THE LINE OF THE ROAD, O.K.?

NOW, YOU GOT THREE LINES

ON YOUR FINGER, DON'T YOU?

ALL RIGHT, EACH ONE'S A INCH.

SO HOW MANY INCHES TO CHILDRESS?

1...

2...

6.

YOU'RE A HELL OF A NAVIGATOR, PHILLIP.

A LOT SMARTER THAN TERRY.

OF COURSE, WHO YOU GOING TO BRAG TO ABOUT THAT?

LOOKIE THERE.

WHAT IS IT?

WELL, IT'S KIND OF LIKE

A SILVER WHALE,

AND THERE'S PEOPLE INSIDE

JUST LIKE OLD JONAH IN THE BIBLE.

[HONK HONK HONK]

GO LIKE THIS.

MAYBE THEY'LL HONK BACK AT US.

[HONK]

[HONK]

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

WELL, O.K. DO IT.

[HONK HONK]

[HONK]

YOU SAID THE BOY STOLE A HALLOWEEN COSTUME?

WHICH ONE?

IT WAS CASPER THE FRIENDLY GHOST.

UH-HUH. THAT WAS THEM.

THEY JUST PASSED US.

GET THIS THING TURNED AROUND.

THAT WAS THEM. TURN AROUND.

IT'S NOT SAFE TO DO MORE THAN 65

WITH THIS MUCH LOAD.

UH-HUH.

THEY'RE COMING FAST.

GET DOWN IN THE BACK SEAT. LAY DOWN.

WHY?

HELL, I DON'T KNOW.

'CAUSE I SAID SO.

YOU'RE BURNING UP THE ENGINE.

HOLD ON.

TAKE THAT WIDE.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

I'M FOLLOWING THE FUGITIVE, FOOL.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING NOW?

UH, RED?

SHIT.

RED?

OW!

OW!

OW!

RED'S GOING TO BE PISSED NOW.

OH!

OW! AH!

OH, GOD!

OW!

ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL US?

SHIT.

OH.

YEAH.

OH, MY GOD.

DAMN IT!

RED, THEY WANT TO KNOW IF THE BOY LOOKED O.K.

WELL, HE WAS LAUGHING AND WAVING.

DON'T GO TELLING THEM THAT.

GOVERNOR, THEY SAID THE BOY LOOKED A-O.K.

OH, THAT'S GREAT.

HE'LL BE FINE, MISS PERRY.

IT'LL BE OVER AND DONE WITH BEFORE YOU KNOW IT.

YOU'LL BE HOME WITH YOUR BOY.

I PROMISE.

I WANT YOU TO KNOW

THAT I PERSONALLY O.K.'d THE USE

OF A BRAND-NEW, HIGH-TECH MOBILE HOME

FROM WHICH TO CONDUCT THIS MANHUNT.

IT'S AN AMAZINGLY FUTURISTIC PIECE

OF LAW ENFORCEMENT EQUIPMENT.

STARTED THIS ROAD 20 YEARS AGO.

STILL AIN'T FINISHED.

APPEARS TO ME

WE GOT A DECISION TO MAKE.

IT'S UP TO YOU, PHILLIP.

WE CAN BACKTRACK TO THE HIGHWAY

OR WE CAN TRY IT ON FOOT.

WHERE ARE WE GOING?

IT'S ALASKA, PHILLIP...

LAST OF THE WILD FRONTIER.

IT'S PRETTY.

IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

YOU EVER BEEN THERE?

NO.

JUST GOT THE ONE POSTCARD.

BUT ANYHOO, BACK TO OUR PRESENT DILEMMA.

YOU FEEL LIKE A HIKE?

HOW FAR?

CAN'T BE MORE THAN, OH, SAY...

1,500 MILES.

YOU'RE PROBABLY RIGHT.

GO GIVE OUR SUPPLIES A CHECK.

WHAT'S IT LOOK LIKE?

A SODA, SOME GUM,

AND HALF A MOON PIE.

IT'S RATIONS FOR ONE AT BEST.

COME ON.

RED, THE GOVERNOR INSISTS ON HAVING THE TRAILER BACK

IN TIME FOR THE PARADE TOMORROW.

TELL HIM TO COME GET IT.

YES, SIR.

WHERE ARE WE GOING?

WE'RE GOING TRICK-OR-TREATING, PHILLIP.

WHAT'S THE MATTER NOW?

WE AIN'T ALLOWED TO GO TRICK-OR-TREATING.

HUH?

MY MAMA DOESN'T ALLOW IT.

TRICK-OR-TREATING? WHY NOT?

AGAINST OUR RELIGION.

IT'S AGAINST YOUR--

WHAT KIND OF FOOLISHNESS IS THAT?

JEHOVAH'S WITNESS.

NOW, PHILLIP, I'M ASKING YOU.

I AIN'T ASKING YOUR MOTHER.

I AIN'T ASKING JEHOVAH.

YOU WANT TO GO TRICK-OR-TREATING OR NOT?

O.K., PHILLIP, ALL YOU GOT TO DO IS KNOCK ON THE DOOR.

WHEN THEY ANSWER IT, YOU SAY TRICK OR TREAT.

GOT IT?

WAIT TILL THEY COME.

NOW, PHILLIP.

TRICK OR TREAT.

IF YOU AIN'T JUST THE CUTEST LITTLE GHOST

I EVER DID SEE.

SAY IT AGAIN.

TRICK OR TREAT, MA'AM.

I GUESS SINCE HALLOWEEN WAS YESTERDAY,

YOU'RE JUST GOING TO HAVE TO TRICK ME,

AND YOU MISSED THEM CARAMEL POPCORN BALLS I MADE UP SPECIAL.

JUST WAIT RIGHT HERE.

PERFECT.

WHAT DO YOU SAY, PHILLIP?

THANK YOU.

YOU'RE WELCOME.

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE KINDNESS

OF THE COMMON MAN, PHILLIP.

YOU SURE THERE'S NO MEAT IN THERE?

SPAM MAYBE?

VIENNA SAUSAGE? ANYTHING LIKE THAT?

NO, SIR.

WELL, I BET YOU COULD MAKE US

SOME MUSTARD SANDWICHES, CAN'T YOU?

YES, SIR.

WELL, GO TO IT.

HERE. YOU CAN SPREAD IT WITH THAT.

WELL, HAVE THEM HOLD TIGHT.

I THINK WE GOT THE BEST SEAT IN THE HOUSE

GET YOUR BOTTOM THERE AND STAY, BOTH OF YOU.

IT'S O.K., SUGAR.

DADDY STILL LOVES YOU.

SO MUCH FOR THE NEW CAR SMELL.

ALL RIGHT.

THIS WILL BE FINE RIGHT HERE, BOB.

BUT I DO HAVE ONE MORE FAVOR TO ASK.

JUST A LOANER, BOB. NOT TO WORRY.

YOU'LL GET HER BACK.

IT'S NEW, YOU KNOW,

SO IF YOU KEEP IT UNDER 45

FOR THE NEXT 500 MILES, I'D APPRECIATE IT.

YOU KNOW I WILL, BOB.

THEY LOOK FUNNY.

MAYBE...BUT BOB DID THE RIGHT THING.

WHAT IF HE'D PUT UP A FIGHT?

I MIGHT HAVE HAD TO SHOOT HIM.

WHERE WOULD THAT FAMILY BE THEN?

NO, BOB'S A FINE FAMILY MAN.

THAT'S ABOUT THE BEST THING A FELLA CAN HOPE TO BE.

HOLD ON. WE'RE ALMOST THERE.

KEEP TOGETHER.

GOT THROUGH TO ASPERMONT-- COERCED A MOTORIST.

DAMN.

WELL, CALL AMARILLO

I'M KIND OF HUNGRY.

WE GOT ANY FOOD HERE?

I DON'T KNOW. LET ME LOOK.

UH, SIR?

WE SHOULDN'T EAT THAT.

THOSE WERE ORDERED SPECIAL FOR THE GOVERNOR.

HEY, PHILLIP, THAT STUFF YOU TOLD ME

ABOUT NOT TRICK-OR-TREATING 'CAUSE OF JEHOVAH...

WAS YOU PULLING MY LEG?

NO, SIR.

WHAT ELSE AIN'T YOU SUPPOSED TO DO?

WE DON'T GET CHRISTMAS.

KISSED HER BACKSIDE, HUH?

WELL, IT'S KIND OF HARD TO EXPLAIN.

HEY, IT'S THE SIXTIES, RED.

THEY GOT A FILE ON EVERYBODY, RIGHT?

JUST 'CAUSE IT'S WRITTEN DOWN,

THAT DON'T MEAN IT'S TRUE.

TRUE, ABSOLUTELY.

BUT, UH, YOU DID WORK AS A COUNTY SHERIFF

IN AMARILLO AND AUSTIN

BEFORE YOU BECAME A RANGER.

RIGHT SO FAR?

HAYNES' JUVENILE COURT RECORD

LISTS YOU AS AMICUS CURIAE--

EVIDENCE GIVEN BY A NONPARTY

WITH THE INTENTION OF SWAYING THE JUDGE ONE WAY OR THE OTHER.

YEAH, WELL, USUALLY IT COMES IN WRITTEN FORM,

BUT THERE WAS NO COPY ATTACHED.

SILENCE.

O.K.

AT LEAST TELL ME WHY HAYNES DID FOUR YEARS

FOR A JOY RIDE, HUH?

WHAT ABOUT PROBATION?

THE BOY HAD A HOME, A FATHER.

WHAT DO YOUR FILES SAY ABOUT HIM?

SAYS HE WAS A PETTY THIEF

WHO DID A LITTLE TIME, GOT OUT,

STAYED PRETTY CLEAN.

YOUR PRECIOUS FILES ARE WRONG.

O.K.

SO TELL ME THE TRUTH.

HAYNES' OLD MAN, HE'S A...

HE WAS A CAREER CRIMINAL.

HE HAD A SOFT SPOT FOR WHORES.

ONE THING'S FOR SURE--

HE BEAT THE HELL OUT OF ANYTHING

HE EVER CAME ACROSS

OR SCREWED OR FATHERED.

IF I--

IF THE JUDGE HAD LET THE BOY

GO HOME WITH HIM,

HE'D HAVE A RAP SHEET LONG AS YOUR ARM WITHIN A YEAR.

AH, GATESVILLE ISN'T SO BAD.

I'VE KNOWN KIDS THERE WHO...

STRAIGHTENED UP.

ONE EVEN BECAME A PRIEST.

I DON'T GET IT.

WELL, YOU DON'T GET IT.

IN TEXAS, THE BOTTOM LINE IS WHO YOU KNOW

AND WHAT THEY OWE YOU.

IT'S HOW I DO MY JOB.

IT'S HOW YOU GOT YOUR JOB.

YOU ARE TOUGH, AREN'T YOU?

I BOUGHT THAT JUDGE A T-BONE,

AND I TOLD HIM TO SEND THE BOY UP.

I TOLD HIM IT WAS THE RIGHT THING TO DO.

JUDGE WENT WITH ME RIGHT DOWN THE LINE.

[HARVESTER ENGINE ROARS]

BUTCH.

BUTCH.

BUTCH, WAKE UP.

YOU'RE A HERO.

PROBABLY BE IN ALL THE PAPERS TOMORROW

HOW YOU SAVED THOSE FOLKS.

TRUTH IS, I DON'T THINK I'D HAVE KILLED THEM, THOUGH.

ONLY KILLED TWO PEOPLE IN MY WHOLE LIFE.

ONE HURT MY MAMA...

AND ONE HURT YOU.

WHAT DO YOU SAY WE TALK THIS OVER,

SETTLE THINGS MAN TO MAN?

THEN WE CAN BE ON OUR WAY.

I'LL EVEN...

I'LL EVEN LET YOU DRIVE.

KNOCK THAT RIGHT OFF YOUR LIST. HOW'D THAT BE?

THAT'S HIS CAR.

HE'S AFOOT.

MACK SAYS IT LOOKS LIKE A .38.

OHH.

MEN AGAINST NATURE.

SEE, PERSONALLY, I LIKE THEM ODDS.

DID I TELL YOU MY DADDY LIVES THERE?

"ALASKA IS A VERY BEAUTIFUL PLACE,

"COLDER THAN HELL MOST ALL THE TIME.

"SOME DAY YOU CAN COME AND VISIT,

AND WE'LL MAYBE GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER BETTER."

HA HA.

SHORT AND SWEET.

THAT'S THE OLD MAN'S STYLE.

WE'LL, UH...

WE'LL JUST REST A WHILE.

THEN YOU MAKE UP YOUR MIND.

HOW'S THAT, PHILLIP?

TOWN CALLED HAPPY OVER IN SWISHER COUNTY.

TAKES IT NICE AND EASY.

GOVERNOR'S HAVING THE MOTHER FLOWN IN.

WALKING'S FOR SQUARES.

YOU DON'T THINK HE'LL HURT THE BOY, DO YOU?

[WHOOP]

BUTCH HAYNES,

THIS IS RED GARNETT OF THE TEXAS RANGERS.

NOW, I KNOW YOU'RE HURTING.

WE GOT 20, 30 ARMED MEN.

YOU LOOK AROUND, YOU'LL SEE I'M SHOOTING YOU STRAIGHT.

ALL THIS FOR ME? I'M TOUCHED.

I'M AFRAID Y'ALL HAVE TO BACK IT UP A STEP OR TWO.

I'M HEADED TO MEXICO.

IF YOU'RE HEADED TO MEXICO,

YOU'RE HEADED IN THE WRONG DIRECTION.

LYING TO 'EM, OF COURSE.

I TELL YOU WHAT.

YOU LET THE BOY GO,

YOU AND I'LL TALK ABOUT IT.

WELL, I APPRECIATE THE OFFER, CAP'N.

BUT YOU KNOW I CAN'T DO THAT.

IF YOU AND YOUR PALS BACK OUT OF HERE,

I'LL DROP THE BOY AT THE BORDER.

IF YOU DON'T...

I'LL SHOOT HIM IN THE HEAD.

I MEAN IT!

DON'T LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT.

I DON'T EVEN HAVE A GUN.

WHAT'D YOU DO WITH THE PISTOLA, ANYWAY?

DROPPED IT IN THE WELL.

THAT'S GOOD THINKIN'.

THEY GET AWAY, WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WHERE WE STARTED.

HE KILLS THE BOY, HE'LL GET THE CHAIR.

HE'LL PROBABLY GET IT ANYWAY.

HE'S KILLED TWO IN TWO DAYS.

WE DON'T KNOW HE KILLED EITHER VICTIM.

HE WASN'T SITTING HOME IN A STRAT-O-LOUNGER.

BESIDES, WHO KILLED PUGH, CASPER?

JUDGING BY THE LOOK OF THINGS,

IT AIN'T GOING TO MAKE TOO MUCH DIFFERENCE ANYWAY.

WE JUST CONCENTRATE ON GETTING THE BOY OUT FOR NOW.

WHERE YOU WANT ME, SIR?

RIGHT HERE ON THE HOOD.

CAN YOU HANDLE THAT ONE?

YES, I CAN, SIR.

EXCUSE ME.

SEE, PHILLIP?

DREAMS DO COME TRUE.

THERE'S YOUR ROCKET SHIP.

YOU THINK I'LL GET A RIDE IN IT?

TODAY'S THE DAY.

THAT'D BE THE BOY'S MOTHER.

GO HELP HER OUT, ADLER.

ALL RIGHT, BUTCH.

WE GOT THE BOY'S MAMA HERE.

WHAT'S WRONG?

IT'S MY MAMA.

NOW THAT YOU GOT YOUR...

SELF A GHOST SUIT...

THINK SHE'LL LET YOU TRICK OR TREAT?

I GOT TO DO ONE HOUSE.

COME HERE.

PUT YOUR...

PUT YOUR MASK BACK ON.

TURN AROUND AND SCARE 'EM.

HELLO. PLEASE.

HE'S MY ONLY SON.

I-I'LL GIVE YOU MONEY, WHATEVER I CAN.

PLEASE! I JUST WANT TO TAKE HIM HOME WITH ME.

[WHOOP WHOOP]

DAMN THIS SON OF A BITCH!

LET'S SEE IT, RED.

YOU READY TO GO HOME?

YES, SIR.

HEY, CAP'N.

YOU GOT ANY CANDY?

WHAT?

CANDY. YOU KNOW, HALLOWEEN CANDY.

POPCORN BALLS,

CARAMEL APPLES, GUM,

SHIT LIKE THAT.

Y'ALL HUNGRY?

YOU FIND ME SOME CANDY...

I'LL DELIVER UP A GHOST.

I'LL GET IT.

YEAH. G-GET THE CANDY.

O.K., EVERYBODY. GOT ANY GUM, CANDY?

GOT ANY JUICY FRUIT?

COME ON, RINEY. PUT IT IN THERE.

COME ON. LET'S GO.

THE LADY'S GOT TO SWEAR

TO TAKE HIM TRICK OR TREATING EVERY YEAR.

YOU ALL SET?

YOU SAY WHEN, I'LL SAY DEAD.

GIVE ME YOUR LIST, PHILLIP.

BUTCH?

GIVE ME YOUR LIST.

ONE MORE THING.

SHE'S GOT TO PROMISE

TO TAKE HIM TO THE FAIR

FOR ROLLER COASTERS

AND COTTON CANDY

WHENEVER HE WANTS.

I WANT TO GO HOME, BUTCH.

MY MAMA'S NOT BAD. SHE GIVES ME THOSE THINGS.

DON'T KID A KIDDER, PHILLIP.

I KNOW JUST...

I KNOW JUST HOW YOU FEEL, PHILLIP.

SHE PROMISES.

MAKE HER SAY IT!

I--I PROMISE!

CAN WE TRUST HER?

SHE'S A REAL GOOD MAMA.

WHEN YOU GET HOME,

YOU HIDE THIS.

YOU'RE NOT BAD...

ARE YOU, BUTCH?

YEAH.

NOW, LISTEN, BUZZ.

I WANT YOU...

ALL RIGHT, NOW I WANT YOU TO STEP OUT THERE REAL SLOW,

KEEPING YOUR PAWS IN THE AIR.

THEN I WANT YOU

TO STRUT RIGHT OVER TO THEM COPS...

AND YELL TRICK OR TREAT.

WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO?

SOMETHING WILL COME TO MIND.

BYE, PHILLIP.

IT'S BEEN ONE HELL OF A RIDE.

ALL RIGHT, CAP'N...

MAKE WAY...

FOR CASPER THE FRIENDLY GHOST.

FRIENDLIEST GHOST I KNOW.

PUT YOUR MASK ON.

PUT YOUR PAWS IN THE AIR.

NOW GO TELL 'EM LIKE I...

TOLD YOU TO.

RED!

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS.

WHAT'S HE DOING?

COME ON, BOY. KEEP WALKING.

KEEP WALKING, BOY!

CALL YOUR BOY.

RUN, PHILLIP!

RUN!

PHILLIP, HONEY, COME ON!

PHILLIP!

THOUGHT BETTER OF RELEASING THE HOSTAGE.

IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT.

PERSONALLY, I THINK WE NEGOTIATED

A PRETTY FAIR DEAL.

BUT IF THERE'S SOMETHING ELSE YOU WANT...

DO THEY WANT TO SHOOT YOU?

STAY ON READY.

YES, SIR.

I'VE SEEN IT ALL NOW.

WHAT'S HE UP TO?

DAMNED IF I KNOW.

HE'S GIVING HIMSELF UP.

KEEP IN MIND HE STILL HAS A GUN.

SO I GUESS...

I GUESS THAT'S IT FOR ALASKA, PHILLIP.

CHIEF, WE GOT AN ARMED KILLER

AND AN INNOCENT BOY OUT THERE.

YOU CLEAN?

AS A WHISTLE.

ALL RIGHT. YOU KEEP 'EM LOCKED DOWN.

DON'T SQUEEZE TILL I SAY WHEN, YOU HEAR?

WHERE THE HELL YOU GOING?

I'M UNARMED, SO...

THROW YOUR GUN DOWN.

IF I HAD A PISTOLA...

I'D BE HEADED IN ANOTHER DIRECTION.

MY PARTNER HERE, HE GOT...

HE GOT RID OF THE EVIDENCE.

DO I KNOW YOU, FRIEND?

NO.

NOT REALLY.

OH.

WELL, LOOK, I--

I WANT TO TALK TO THE BOY.

THEN WE CAN...

TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS.

HOW'S THAT?

ONLY TAKE A SECOND.

O.K.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU SOMETHING.

HOLD HIM. IF HE MAKES A MOVE--

GIVE IT A SECOND.

MAYBE SOMEDAY...

YOU'LL GET TO GO.

HE'S GOING FOR HIS WEAPON.

NO!

NO!

KEEP EVERYBODY BACK!

NO!

OHH.

BUTCH!

DAMN, BUZZ.

SHOT TWICE... IN THE SAME DAY.

NO NEED TO WORRY.

CAN'T HURT NOBODY NOW.

[MOTHER] OH, MY GOD!

HE DOESN'T HAVE A GUN, CHIEF.

BUTCH!

BUTCH.

BUTCH.

BUTCH!

BUTCH!

BUTCH!

BUTCH!

BUTCH.

WHOA, WHOA, WHOA!

BACK OFF!

TAKE IT EASY, RED.

WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT ALL ABOUT?

I DIDN'T SAY WHEN.

HEY!

HEY!

JEEZ, LADY!

GOD DAMN IT!

RED...

I THOUGHT HE HAD A GUN, TOO.

THERE WAS JUST NO WAY OF KNOWING.

YOU KNOW YOU DID EVERYTHING YOU COULD...

DON'T YOU?

I DON'T KNOW NOTHING.

NOT ONE DAMN THING.
