The Great Escape
Hey there, crime kids. Happy Monday. It's time once again to take a trip to the dark side, where your most violent fantasies become sins of the flesh, right here, where the hardboiled action is non-stop, at the coolest crime joint in cyberspace ... at That Killing Feeling.
In Chapter 26 of BABY HEISTER, Jo leaves the farm to join Doc at their safe house ... in a hearse hidden in the barn. Meanwhile, Doc, Dusty and Reno drive toward the airport to get the hell out of Dodge ...
EXT. DOC’S FARMHOUSE - FRONT PORCH - AT THAT MOMENT
Jo comes out the front door.
Looks natty in a black men’s suit.
She goes down the steps,
on a mission, walks toward --
EXT. DOC’S BARN - DAY
A massive, two-story affair.
Jo walks over to the big doors.
IN THE BARN
Jo SNAPS on the lights,
revealing a giant, two-story room.
Bales of hay sits
against the far wall.
She grabs a pitchfork. STABS it.
TOSSES IT with surprising strength.
INT. DOC’S BARN - A LITTLE LATER
The front portion of the
bales of hay is now gone,
revealing a pair of doors.
She unlocks them. Steps inside --
A HIDDEN COMPARTMENT
Where we see a big vehicle
covered with a tarp.
She grabs the front end.
YANKS it off, revealing --
a CADILLAC HEARSE.
INT. CRIME SCENE TRUCK - MOVING - DAY
Kelsey drives. Doc chats with
Reno and Dusty in the back.
We’ll do the split on the plane.
When we get to LAX,
you can do whatever you want.
Won’t they be watching the airports?
Yeah. That place ain’t gonna be safe.
Where you gonna go?
I’ve got a limo waiting on the tarmac.
Straight shot out of the airport.
Where’s it gonna take you?
A safe house downtown.
Well, fuck. Can we come with you?
Perfect place to lie low for a bit.
Doc stares off into space. Thinking.
Whattaya say, Doc.
It’s only for a couple of days
till the heat dies down.
(looks at him)
Yeah, sure. Sorry.
Still upset about losing that farm.
My whole life, that’s all I ever wanted.
What about Jo?
She’s driving the stash
directly over to the loft.
If you don’t mind me askin,’
how much is it?
Forty years worth of heisting?
(pause for effect)
Little over twenty million.
Isn’t that kinda dangerous?
Traveling with that much scratch?
Not when it’s in a casket --
