INT. toyota sedan, bronx ny- midafternoon

A man, RICK, and a woman, SUE, just ripped off a major mobster. Rick has just stolen a car, and the two of them are trying to get out of town as quickly as possible. Rick, however, refuses to leave without saying goodbye to his daughter.

SUe

Rick, we have to get out of town.

RICK

I can't just leave my kid without saying goodbye, alright?

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

SUE

She lives with your parents, right? Better life than you could ever give her.

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

RICK

Shut the fuck up. She's still my kid. We're here just don't say anything.

Rick and Sue exit the car. A little girl around the age of seven, HOLLY, runs toward Rick.

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

HOLLY

Daddy!

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

Holly throws her arms around her father

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

RICK

Hey baby.

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

HOLLY

Can we have a tea party Daddy?

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

RICK

Sweetie, there's something I need to tell you.

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

HOLLY

(throwing a tantrum)No, no, no, no, no. You promised! You promised!

rick

(clearly being torn) Holly, Daddy has to go away for a while.

HOLLY

But what about my birthday party.

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

RICK

I love you, Holly. I promise, I...I just want you to know that from the second you were born and I held you in my arms--everything has been for you. I have to go away now, but I will always be with you.

HOLLY

You're being silly Daddy.

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

SUe

(kicking the car) What a fucking clunker. Hey, Rick, the hubcap just fell off.

Rick turns to Sue, irritated.

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

RICK

Just throw it in the trunk, I'm talking to my kid. Have a heart.

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

sue

Neither of us are going to have a heartbeat if Bruno Lombardi finds us here.

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

Rick turns back to Holly and grabs her, smelling her hair, trying to retain every last detail in case they never meet again. Sue walks to the trunk and pops it open. She throws the hubcap in and slams it shuts. It pops open and she slams it shut again. Again, it pops open, she shuts it a last time.

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

RICK

Alright, mia bella, run inside.

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

Rick turns away, unable to watch his daughter walk away for what may be the last time. However, unbeknownst to Rick and Sue, Holly runs to the back of the car, pops the trunk and jumps inside.

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

RICK (CONT'D)

What the fuck, Sue? You scared my kid.

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

SUe

Let's just get out of here, alright.

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

Sue notices the trunk is open and slams it down from the side without looking in. They both get in the car. Rick attempts to fix the rear-view mirror, but it breaks off. He rolls down the window and throws it out into the street.

SUe (CONT'D)

You couldn't have stolen a better car? It's like we did some asshole a favor by stealing this.

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

RICK

Not up to par for you Princess? Quit complaining and keep an eye out.

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

A bullet flies into the car.

SUe

Get down!

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

RICK

(driving more aggressively) Do you see them?

SUe

(cocking her gun and returning fire out the window) No, I can't see shit. And it's starting to fucking rain.

rick

(looking around the dashboard) Where are the windshield wipers?

Rick and Sue both turn their heads to the left and watch the windshield wiper fly past the drivers' side of the car.

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

RICK (CONT'D)

Well there goes that. I have an idea. Put on your seat belt. Are they gaining on us?

SUe

(shooting) They are on our asses.

Rick

Brace yourself.

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

Rick slams on the brakes, losing control of the vehicle, hydroplaning and causing the car behind them to crash into them. They sit in silence for a second, attempting to compose themselves from the crash. Rick gets out of the car, cautiously, to survey the damage.

RICK (CONT'D)

They're gone.

Sue exits the car and begins to look around too.

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

rick

Rear-ended us and flew right through the front window. (to the dead bodies) Next time, wear your seat belt.

SUe

You think you're on CSI or something, Rick? (noticing a red-tinted liquid under the car) Looks like our ride is leaking transmission fluid.

RICK

Transmission is in front. What the hell is this?

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

He pops open the trunk to see his daughter lying dead, her blood dripping onto the sidewalk. Sue looks over his shoulder and screams.(The following line is just a suggestion)

RICK (CONT'D)

Holly. Holly, baby, wake up. Please wake up. No. This was for her. Everything has always been for her. What have I done, what....

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

Rick takes his gun from its holster on his belt and cocks it.

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

rick (CONT'D)

(pointing the gun at Sue)You! You! This all your fucking fault. If you could just keep your junkie ass clean, (shoots) my baby (shoots) wouldn't be (shoots) dead.

Sue dies. When Rick realizes what he's done, he turns the gun on himself.

LianeWeissenberger - on 05/02/2010

RICK (CONT'D)

If it weren't for me, my baby wouldn't be dead.
