00:08:19About four years ago.
00:08:21Maybe five.
00:08:23[ Ringing continues ] was it four or five?
00:08:31He didn't come to trudy's funeral.
00:08:34But you just said that he can't leave the house.
00:08:36He never called or wrote -- not one word.
00:08:40Did you call him?
00:08:41Yes, 100 times.
00:08:43He never picked up the phone.
00:08:45Maybe he's calling to apologize.
00:08:47Too late.
00:08:47I don't need him.
00:08:49Well, I think you do.
00:08:51Don't pick -- don't talk -- hello?

00:09:13He says it's life-or-death.
00:09:19Sharon: Wow, this is where you grew up?
00:09:22Are you surprised?
00:09:23Nah, I just always pictured something different.
00:09:27Like what?
00:09:29I don't know.
00:09:38Was that your swing set?
00:09:40My father put it up when I was 8.
00:09:43It was probably the happiest day of my life.
00:09:46Looks like fun.
00:09:48I wouldn't know.
00:09:50You never used it?
00:09:52I mean, look at it.
00:09:53It's a death trap.
00:09:55But it was fun watching him put it up.
00:09:59He must have been disappointed.
00:10:01Nah, he was used to it by then.
00:10:03Two months later, he went out to pick up some chinese food.
00:10:07He never came back.
00:10:17Is that him?
00:10:25Okay, let's go.
00:10:29I waved at him.
00:10:29He waved at me.
00:10:31That's enough for one decade.
00:10:32Adrian, you can't leave.
00:10:33He's your brother.
00:10:37Come on.
00:10:56Hello, adrian.

00:11:18Oh, so youcan dial a telephone.
00:11:21I was worried.
00:11:22I thought you might be paralyzed or something.
00:11:25I wasn't paralyzed.
00:11:26I was being sarcastic.
00:11:27You were being sardonic.
00:11:28Sarcasm is a contemptuous ironic statement.
00:11:30You were being mockingly derisive. that's sardonic.
00:11:35Please come in.
00:11:43 you didn't have to clean up just for us.

00:11:52I have this answering machine.

00:12:24Thank you.
00:12:25You know, I really, uh, like that catalog.
00:12:28Can I have one?
00:12:28They sent you two of them.
00:12:30I'm sorry, no.
00:12:32Well, they're identical.

00:12:41It'll be all ready for him.
00:12:43He's not coming back.
00:12:44You don't know.
00:12:45Yes, I do.
00:12:46You don't know everything.
00:12:49Mr. great detective.
00:12:51Why aren't you out there looking for him?
00:12:54'Cause I'm afraid I might find him.
00:13:05Ad-adrian, is -- is that you in the photo over there?
00:13:11That's me.
00:13:11You're not touching.
00:13:12Actually, that's as close as we ever got.
00:13:15Is that your mom?
00:13:18She's beautiful.
00:13:20She was.
00:13:20We lost her in 1994.
00:13:25[ Both sigh ] ..
00:13:28Are you still living on pine street?
00:13:30Oh, yeah, he has a great apartment.
00:13:32You should come by sometime.
00:13:34I can't.
00:13:37Ambrose, don't say you can't.
00:13:38I can't.
00:13:39Of course you can.
00:13:39You choose not to.
00:13:42But that's easy for you to say.
00:13:43You've always been the fearless one.
00:13:45Here it comes.
00:13:46You should have seen him -- going to stores and buying things all by himself when he was 15.
00:13:52Driving a car when he was 24, going out on dates -- going out on dates with women at 26 years of age.
00:14:00He's a regular evel knievel.
00:14:03So, anyway, ambrose, what am I -- what am I doing here?
00:14:09Believe it or not, I need your help.
00:14:10Something happened two nights ago.
00:14:12It's my next-door neighbor.
00:14:12His name is pat van ranken.
00:14:15What happened?
00:14:16I'm 85% to 90% sure he killed his wife.
00:14:24That's his house.
00:14:24You can see it out the window.
00:14:27His wife rita is a friend of mine.
00:14:30She comes over and makes me dinner sometimes.
00:14:32Is this your old bedroom?
00:14:35Wow, how does it feel to be in here?
00:14:38Thank you for asking.
00:14:39[ Gasps ] You like the who?
00:14:41The what?
00:14:42The rock band the who.
00:14:42You have their album.
00:14:44Oh, yeah.
00:14:46All the kids enjoyed the rock 'n' roll singing groups.
00:14:50AND THE 49ers?
00:14:51Now they were a great band.
00:14:54They're a football team.
00:14:55I know.
00:14:56You were just trying to fit in, weren't you?
00:15:03This might be the saddest room I've ever seen.
00:15:06Anyway, adrian, two nights ago, I heard them fighting.
00:15:10They were really screaming.
00:15:12Then I heard gunshots.
00:15:14Are you sure?
00:15:15Four shots.
00:15:15It sounded like a lane & westing 9-millimeter.
00:15:17Lane & westing doesn't make a 9-millimeter.
00:15:20They did until 1992.
00:15:21I know that gun.
00:15:22I wrote the manual for it.
00:15:25Three hours later, he drove away in his pickup truck.
00:15:28He was gone all night.
00:15:31The next day, I called the house.
00:15:33Rita wasn't there.
00:15:34Pat said she was in argentina visiting her sister, which was news to me.
00:15:38When I mentioned that I saw him leave, he denied it.
00:15:40He said it was impossible.
00:15:42His truck's been broken all summer.
00:15:45He -- he called me a lunatic.
00:15:49Did you call the police?
00:15:53They no longer respond to my complaints because I call them more often than I should.
00:15:57I'd like to complain to them about it, but they no longer respond to my complaints.
00:16:01When was the last time you saw the wife?
00:16:04Three days ago.
00:16:04She borrowed a bag of flour.
00:16:07She was baking pies for the town.
00:16:09It's their big centennial celebration.
00:16:12What do you think, adrian?
00:16:13Yeah, you might be onto something.
00:16:18Oh, yeah.
00:16:18I'll look into it.
00:16:21Let's go.
00:16:24We'll look into it.
00:16:26You'll look into it.
00:16:36What -- what are you doing?
00:16:37What -- what's that for?
00:16:39For making my family seem normal.
00:16:43Okay, okay.
00:16:43Are you really going to look into it?
00:16:45No, no.
00:16:45He's delusional.
00:16:47He is the worst eyewitness in the world.
00:16:51But he heard gunshots.
00:16:52Sharona, the whole town has been celebrating all week.
00:16:55It was probably some kid setting off firecrackers.
00:16:58Well, at least you two were talking again.
00:17:00Well, I'm glad you enjoyed it, because that's it.
00:17:03I am never setting foot in that house again.
00:17:06Okay, I have my own problems.
00:17:08Really? I never noticed.
00:17:09Nowyou'rebeing sardonic.
00:17:18What? what is it?
00:17:22Van ranken's pickup.
00:17:24He told my brother it hadn't been moved all summer, but look at the grass in front of the truck.
00:17:31It's brown.
00:17:32The truck's been moved.

00:21:06You almost gave me a heart attack.
00:21:08That guy hasn't left the house in, what, 20 years?
00:21:12My wife knows him.
00:21:14What is he, scared of stuff?
00:21:18Yes, he's scared of stuff.
00:21:20Stuff and -- and things.
00:21:22What can I do for you?
00:21:24Well, my brother loaned your wife a bag of flour, and he sent us over to -- to pick it up.
00:21:32Yeah, sure.
00:21:32Come on in.
00:21:38Is your wife here?
00:21:40No, no, you missed her.
00:21:42She's in argentina.
00:21:42Her sister's sick.
00:21:46We were thinking about doing some hiking later.
00:21:52What is that melvone state park like?
00:21:55Is that nice?
00:21:56It's beautiful.
00:21:57How'd you know I was up there?
00:21:59Uh, there's a parking permit on your pickup truck.
00:22:02Is that right?
00:22:03I guess you couldn't have had too much fun, though.
00:22:05According to the permit, you got there just before closing -- ?
00:22:10That's true.
00:22:12It was a longer drive than I thought.
00:22:14Well, let's find that flour.
00:22:19Excuse the mess.
00:22:19I was just cleaning up.
00:22:21[ Coughs ] I don't know where she put it.
00:22:25Is that a shoe?
00:22:27Yeah, it's my wife's.
00:22:28Guess she decided she didn't like them.
00:22:31It's funny there's only one.
00:22:33They -- ha ha -- usually come in pairs.
00:22:45What are you doing?
00:22:46I was just -- just looking for that other shoe.
00:22:52Must be around here somewhere.
00:22:56They really should be together.
00:22:58'Cause they're a -- they're a, you know, a pair.
00:23:02I'm sure it'll turn up.
00:23:04Well, when it does, could you give me a call?
00:23:06Uh, it'd mean a lot to me.
00:23:12I'll do that.
00:23:16There's the flour.
00:23:18Thank your brother for me, won't you?
00:23:21Well, I guess that's it.
00:23:23I don't want to keep you.
00:23:25Oh, I'm sure you don't.
00:23:39Whatever happened happened in the kitchen.
00:23:42He's been bleaching the floor.
00:23:44And he went to the state park, maybe to bury something.
00:23:47Yes, he was parked by the southern entrance.
00:23:50How do you know that?
00:23:51 why don't you tell her, adrian?
00:23:56The yellow acorns on his truck, which can only mean he was parked under a spotted oak tree.
