EXT. BENNY'S WORLD OF LIQUOR--DAY
They exit the store squabbling.
SETHThe store is bursting into flames.
What did I tell you? What did I say to you? I said buy the road map and leave.
RICHARDBoth Seth and Richard stand on opposite sides of the car.
What the am I supposed to do, Seth? He recognized us.
He didn't recognize .
Seth, I'm telling you, the way he looked at us--you especially--I knew he knew.
Low profile. Do you understand the meaning of the words "low profile"?
Hey, Richie, how's your hand? Did it hurt like a ?
SETHThey both climb in the car (Seth behind the wheel). Seth starts it up. The souped-up engine ROARS to life. We can hear Seth [yelling over] the motor.
Let me tell you what "Low Profile" is not.
SETH It is not taking a hostage. It is not shooting police. It is not setting fire to a building.CLOSE-UP: [TIRE SPINNING IN THE DIRT]
The Plymouth tears out, hits the street, and speeds off down the road.
We CRANE UP HIGH to see the car leaving a trail of dust behind it.

Kelly Houge standing on the court house steps talking into the camera.
Earlier today, during a daylight liquor store robbery in Big Springs, the Gecko brothers killed another Texas Ranger. That changes the death toll to 16.
"THE NUTTIEST THING"
THE MEXICAN BORDER--NIGHT
INT. MOBILE HOME--NIGHT
Seth, keeping low, gets behind Jacob.
SETHSeth disappears into the bathroom with Kate and Richard, closing the door behind him.
What're ya gonna say?
I don't have the slightest idea.
Well, you just keep thinkin' of that gun next to Kate's head.
Father and son are alone for the first time since this whole thing began.
INT. BATHROOM--MOBILE HOME--NIGHT
The bathroom, which consists of a shower, a toilet and a small sink, is a tight fit with three people in it.
Richard has his back against the wall, with his arm around Kate, holding her in front of him.
Kate's eyes are wide with fear.
Seth stands, .45 in hand, ready to fire if the wrong person should open the door.
Everybody talks low and quiet.
RICHARDBACK TO JACOB AND SCOTT
This isn't gonna work.
Shhhh. It's gonna work just fine
A stern BORDER GUARD approaches JACOB'S window.
BACK TO THE BATHROOM
RICHARDBACK TO JACOB AND SCOTT
I just want to go on record as saying this is a bad idea.
Duly noted. Now, shut up.
BORDER GUARDBACK TO THE BATHROOM
How many with you?
RICHARD (to himself)BACK TO JACOB AND SCOTT
They're gonna search the van.
As long as you don't act like a nut, we're gonna be just fine.
What the is that supposed to mean?
BORDER GUARDBACK TO BATHROOM
Open up. I'm coming aboard.
RICHARDSETH HAULS off .
So what was the nuttiest thing I ever did Seth? I'm curious, tell me, what, what was it?
Another time, hmm, Richie?
Was it possibly when your was rotting in jail and I broke it out? Was that the nuttiest thing? That was nutty. Not to mention stupid.
Richard HITS the floor.
"MEAN SERVANT OF GOD"
SETH[Jacob shakes his head from side to side.]
...Now, I always said God can kiss my but I just changed my lifetime tune about thirty minutes ago. 'Cause I know that whatever is out there trying to get in is pure evil straight from hell. And if there is a hell, and those are from it, then there has got to be a heaven, Jacob, there's gotta be.
SETH[Jacob puts on his glasses.]
So which are you, are you a faithless preacher, or are you a mean, servant of God?
I'm a mean, mmm-mmm servant of God.
"I'M SO PRETTY"
["WE HAVE TO GO BACK" OUTTAKE]
SETHShe spins and grabs the door knob, ready to fling the door and help her father.
Wait! We have to go back for my father!
Your father's dead.
No, he isn't!
SCOTTJust then they hear Jacob's voice BOOMING from the barroom.
Kate! Just shut up will ya. Daddy's dead, alright, just face it! It's too late and Pa was too far away. If flinging that door and filling this room with those bat-things would save him, then I'd fling it. But as of now the only thing it'll do is turn us into one of them.
He needs our help, Scott!
He is beyond our help. You saw him get bit. I saw him get bit. We all saw him get bit. You just can't help him anymore. Now Mom's gone, and Dad, too. If you go out there I'll lose you too. Me and you have to stick together, OK?
Scott, you're not gonna lose me, ok?
"SWEAR YOU'LL KILL ME"
JACOBKate doesn't answer.
I'm gonna ask you two again, then I want you to swear to God that you'll kill me. If you don't, I'm gonna just kill myself right now. Now, since you need me I think you better swear. Kate, do you swear to God that when I become one of the undead, you'll kill me?
Kate! We don't much time, so I'm only gonna give ya till the count to five. One...two... three... four...
Okay, alright, I promise I'll do it!
"Do you want to live through this?"
