"LOW PROFILE"

EXT. BENNY'S WORLD OF LIQUOR--DAY

They exit the store squabbling.

SETH
What did I tell you? What did I say to you? I said buy the road map and leave.

The store is bursting into flames.

RICHARD
What the am I supposed to do, Seth? He recognized us.

SETH
He didn't recognize .

RICHARD
Seth, I'm telling you, the way he looked at us--you especially--I knew he knew.

SETH
Low profile. Do you understand the meaning of the words "low profile"?

RICHARD
Hey, Richie, how's your hand? Did it hurt like a ?

Both Seth and Richard stand on opposite sides of the car.

SETH
Let me tell you what "Low Profile" is not.

They 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.

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.

RICHARD

["TV REPORT"]

EXT. COURTHOUSE--DAY

Kelly Houge standing on the court house steps talking into the camera.

KELLY HOUGE
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.

SETH
What're ya gonna say?

JACOB
I don't have the slightest idea.

SETH
Well, you just keep thinkin' of that gun next to Kate's head.

Seth disappears into the bathroom with Kate and Richard, closing the door behind him.

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.

RICHARD
This isn't gonna work.

SETH
Shhhh. It's gonna work just fine

BACK TO JACOB AND SCOTT

A stern BORDER GUARD approaches JACOB'S window.

BACK TO THE BATHROOM

RICHARD
I just want to go on record as saying this is a bad idea.

SETH
Duly noted. Now, shut up.

BACK TO JACOB AND SCOTT

BORDER GUARD
How many with you?

BACK TO THE BATHROOM

RICHARD (to himself)
They're gonna search the van.

SETH (offhand)
As long as you don't act like a nut, we're gonna be just fine.

RICHARD
What the is that supposed to mean?

SETH (distracted)
What?

BACK TO JACOB AND SCOTT

BORDER GUARD
Open up. I'm coming aboard.

BACK TO BATHROOM

RICHARD
So what was the nuttiest thing I ever did Seth? I'm curious, tell me, what, what was it?

SETH
Another time, hmm, Richie?

RICHARD
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.

SETH HAULS off .

Richard HITS the floor.

KATE
Thanks.


"SANTANICO'S DANCE"


"MEAN SERVANT OF GOD"

SETH
...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.

[Jacob shakes his head from side to side.]

SETH
So which are you, are you a faithless preacher, or are you a mean, servant of God?

[Jacob puts on his glasses.]

JACOB
I'm a mean, mmm-mmm servant of God.


"I'M SO PRETTY"


["WE HAVE TO GO BACK" OUTTAKE]

SETH

KATE
Wait! We have to go back for my father!

SETH
Your father's dead.

KATE
No, he isn't!

She spins and grabs the door knob, ready to fling the door and help her father.

SCOTT
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.

KATE
He needs our help, Scott!

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?

KATE
Scott, you're not gonna lose me, ok?

Just then they hear Jacob's voice BOOMING from the barroom.

JACOB
Open up!


"SWEAR YOU'LL KILL ME"

JACOB
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 doesn't answer.

JACOB
Kate! We don't much time, so I'm only gonna give ya till the count to five. One...two... three... four...

KATE
Okay, alright, I promise I'll do it!

JACOB
Good girl.
