-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A une fête de remise des diplômes dans une université , un gars s'appelant John et plusieurs de ses amis - dont Blake et Ethan - fêtent la fin de leurs 4 ans d'études. Alors que la fête bat son plein, la scène se déplace dans une autre partie de la maison où une fille est étendue morte dans la bibliothèque.

Harrison et Tru discutent de la capacité de Tru à revivre une journée. Harrison trouve cela encore dur à avaler et il conseille vivement à sa soeur de laisser le passé derrière elle.

Le matin suivant, Tru se réveille quand on tape à sa porte. Lindsay entre avec de la nourriture, et le sujet de la conversation passe aux garçons. Lindsay demande alors à sa meilleure amie si elle n'a pas autre chose à lui dire. Tru la remercie pour le petit-déjeuner et se lève. Lindsay semble déçue.

Toute la journée se passe et on retrouve Tru à la morgue en début de soirée. Alors qu'elle ouvre le sac que Lindsay lui a amené dans la matinée, elle entend une voix souffler son prénom : "Tru". Elle se dirige dans la crypte et alors qu'elle passe à côté d'un corps, celui-ci lui attrape le bras. Tru pousse en hurlement mais il ne s'agit que de Gardez cherchant à lui faire une bonne blague. Davis arrive en courant. Alors que Tru paraît encore choquée, Gardez est appelé pour aller récupérer un corps.

Pendant ce temps, Meredith est informée par un de ses supérieurs qu'un test de drogue obligatoire va être effectué pour tous les employés. Elle semble très préoccupée.

Plus tard, alors qu'il dîne avec sa soeur, Harrison lui apprend que Meredith n'a pas passé le test et a été renvoyée. Tru est surprise et inquiète mais elle sait qu'elle ne peut rien y faire. Harrison lui dit que çà serait la bonne journée à recommencer afin d'aider Meredith. Tru lui répond qu'elle ne peut pas contrôler quand cela arrive.

Retour à  la morgue : Davis apprend à Tru que 5 hommes ont été amenés. Ils n'ont pas de portefeuille ce qui rend l'identification difficile. 4 d'entre eux ont beaucoup d'alcool dans leur sang. Le 5ème n'en a pas mais son sang contient des traces d'un produit appelé avlocardyl. Les objets personnels récupérés comprennent une alliance et une carte de visite d'un bar strip-tease appelé Foreplay avec le nom de Turquoise au dos.

Plus tard, Tru est en train de taper à l'ordinateur. Soudain, elle se rend compte que c'est aujourd'hui l'anniversaire de Lindsay. Elle s'en veut de l'avoir oublié et comprend le comportement de cette dernière dans la matinée.

Mais elle n'a pas le temps d'avoir plus de remords : un charmant jeune homme, Luc, entre dans le bureau à la recherche de Gardez. Il lui explique qu'il est l'un de ses amis et que celui-ci lui a permit de passer un entretien pour un job de photographe de scènes du crime. L'entretien s'est moyennement passé. Alors que chacun se présente, on sent une certaine alchimie entre Tru et Luc. Davis entre et on apprend qu'il a aidé Luc à trouver le bureau de l'entretien plus tôt dans la soirée. Alors qu'ils discutent, Tru entend soudain une voix venant de la crypte disant "Aide moi". Elle s'excuse et se dirige vers la crypte.

Dans la crypte, les 5 corps voilés sont disposés sur des brancards, prêts à être mis dans les compartiments. Tru avance au milieu des corps et s'apprète à retirer l'un des draps quand le corps se tourne vers elle et dit "Aide moi". Puis un à un, chaque corps sollicite l'aide de la jeune fille.

Retour dans le temps

Tru se réveille en sursaut dans son lit et réalise très vite que la journée se répète quand Lindsay entre dans la pièce avec de la nourriture. Seulement cette fois Tru se souvient de lui souhaiter un joyeux anniversaire ce qui redonne le sourire à Lindsay car personne ne lui avait encore souhaité.

Quand elle rejoint Harrison, Tru lui dit qu'elle est en train de revivre la journée et qu'elle va avoir besoin d'aide pour identifier les 5 hommes de la morgue. Elle le conduit au bar de strip-tease Foreplay et l'intérêt de son frère augmente. Après une petite enquête rapide auprès d'une stripteaseuse, il apprend à Tru que la stripteaseuse qui se fait appeler Turquoise s'appelle en réalité Tara et travaille dans le télémarketing dans la journée. Tru quitte le club, laissant Harrison en bonne compagnie.

Au bureau de Tara, Tru lui explique qu'elle cherche quelqu'un pour animer une fête. Tara est génée car personne ne connait son autre job. Elle lui apprend qu'elle a un engagement pour un enterrement de vie de garçon à un hôtel dans la soirée. Elle ne connaît pas la personne qui l'a engagé.

A l'hôtel, Tru se fait passer pour la stripteaseuse (sans trop de mal :) et convaint le gars de l'accueil de lui donner le nom du futur marié.

Elle se rend ensuite dans le bureau de ce dernier, John Brockett, et après l'avoir convaincu qu'elle travaille à l'hôtel, elle lui explique que la fête ne peut pas avoir lieu car toutes les chambres sont prises. John refuse d'annuler la fête et Tru lui dit qu'ils vont trouver une solution. Quelques instants plus tard, à la morgue, Tru interroge Davis au sujet de l'avlocardyl en lui disant qu'elle révise pour son examen d'entrée en école de médecine. Malgré son étonnement, Davis lui explique que c'est un produit difficile à détecter qui peut être facilement mis dans un liquide et peut tuer en quelques heures.

A la sortie de la morgue, elle appelle Harrison (qui est toujours au bar de striptease) et lui explique qu'elle suspecte quelqu'un d'avoir mis le poison dans les alcools servis à la fête. Elle prévoit donc de changer toutes les bouteilles. Elle demande à Harrison de trouver la future mariée, Robyn Wilson.

Tru rend ensuite rend visite à Meredith et lui demande si tout va bien. Devant l'énervement de Meredith, elle lui dit juste qu'il pourrait y avoir un test de drogue puis quitte son bureau.

Tru arrive dans la chambre d'hôtel où la fête va avoir lieu avec un carton de bouteilles d'alcool. Elle a à peine le temps d'échanger les bouteilles que les 5 hommes pénètrent dans la pièce. John est surpris, elle lui explique que l'hôtel l'envoie pour qu'elle s'occupe du bar afin de s'excuser. La fête commence. Soudain un sixième homme, Blake, arrive. Sur le balcon, Tru appelle Harrison et lui explique que 6 hommes participent à la fête et que n'importe lequel d'entre eux peut être le meurtrier.

De retour derrière le bar, Tru observe les 6 hommes et note sur une serviette des mots désignant chacun : TIE (cravate pour Ethan), GLASSES (lunettes), CURLY (frisé), BEST MAN (le meilleur pour Blake), GROOM (marié pour John) et HAT (casquette). Les gars regardent une cassette vidéo d'eux jouant au football. Quand la caméra s'attarde sur Catherine, la fille tuée dans la bibliothèque, Blake éteint la télévision. Quelques instants plus tard, Tara arrive et commence le striptease. Pendant ce temps, Ethan demande un verre sans alcool à Tru et lui explique qu'il est sobre depuis plusieurs mois. Tru en déduit que Ethan est la victime dont le sang ne contenait pas d'alcool et le raye de la liste.

Elle contacte ensuite Davis et lui demande comment l'alcool réagit avec le produit. Il lui apprend que l'alcool agirait comme un agent masquant, ne laissant aucune trace de la cause de la mort. A ce moment, Luc entre à la recherche de la salle d'entretien. Tru demande à Davis de communiquer au jeune homme certains informations. Ce dernier est surpris.

La soirée bat son plein. Tru identifie un autre des corps en se basant sur son alliance. Elle l'élimine donc de son enquête sur l'identité du tueur. Elle discute ensuite sur le balcon avec Ethan et comprend que quelque chose s'est passé avec la fille de la vidéo il y a 5 ans. Alors qu'il s'apprète à tout lui raconter, Blake les interrompt. Pendant ce temps, à son bureau, Meredith est mise au courant du dépistage de drogue.

Un peu plus tard, Blake disparaît. Tru sort de la suite pour le retrouver. Soudain, Blake attrape la serviette avec tous les noms dans sa poche arrière et il la confronte en disant qu'il a vérifié à l'accueil et que personne n'a envoyé de barmaid. Mais Tru n'a pas le temps de s'expliquer.

Un cri retentit depuis la chambre. Tru et Blake arrivent en courant et trouvent Tara en train de repousser l'un des gars qui essayait de l'attraper. Tara prend une pause pour se calmer. Tru la suit et découvre qu'elle a volé les portefeuilles des hommes comme châtiment. Elle découvre aussi qu'elle a bu toute la soirée l'une des bouteilles d'alcool qu'elle avait retiré du bar. Tara ne faisant pas partie des 5 victimes, Tru réalise que l'alcool n'a pas été empoisonné. En observant le bar, elle aperçoit le seau à glaçons et comprend c'est la glace qui contient le poison. Elle appelle alors la morgue pour savoir s'il existe un antidote. Davis lui dit qu'il en existe un appelé glucagon, et il peut se trouver dans un des kits de soin de la morgue. Blake interrompt la conversation et amène la sécurité qui escorte Tru hors de l'hôtel.

Tru se rend rapidement à la morgue et trouve l'antidote dans l'un des kits. Alors qu'elle est sur le point de repartir, Davis la surprend. Il ne veut pas d'explications mais lui dit qu'il a compris que quelque chose se passait et qu'il espère qu'elle pourra être honnête avec lui un jour. Tru part en courant et aperçoit Luc devant l'ascenseur. Elle réalise qu'elle a perdu l'occasion de le rencontrer.

De retour à l'hôtel, elle tombe immédiatement sur Blake qui lui rappelle qu'elle n'est pas la bienvenue. Elle l'interroge concernant la fille qui est morte. Elle aperçoit alors la glace dans son verre. Il n'est donc pas le meurtrier. Alors que Blake cherche à la faire partir, la sonnerie du téléphone de Tru retentit. Il s'agit d'Harrison qui lui apprend que la fiancée de John a annulé le mariage il y a plusieurs mois. Tru se rend compte que John est le tueur et explique tout à Blake. De retour dans la suite, elle dit aux gars ce qu'elle a découvert, et confronte John en expliquant avec détails son plan pour tuer ses amis. Pour le faire avouer, elle lui dit que de la glace pilée a été mise dans chaque verre pour les garder frais, incluant son verre. Si elle a tort et qu'il n'a pas empoisonné la glace, il n'aura pas besoin de l'antidote. John devient pâle.

Plus tard, la police l'emmène. Blake raconte alors comment John a été violent avec Catherine lors de la fête de fin d'études, la jettant à travers la vitre d'une table. Ils n'ont jamais rien dit à la police. 3 semaines plus tôt, il a eu des remords et il a écrit à John une lettre anonyme, le menaçant de le dénoncer. Ne connaissant pas l'auteur de la lettre, John avait donc prévu de tuer ses 5 "amis".

Lindsay entre chez elle et constate déprimée que son répondeur ne contient aucun message. Elle allume la lumière et tout ses amis surgissent pour lui souhaiter un bon anniversaire. Tru arrive avec le gâteau. Lindsay est heureuse.

De retour à la morgue, Tru entend à nouveau une voix qui l'appelle. Cette fois, elle sait qu'il s'agit d'une blague de Gardez et soulève d'un grand coup le drap sous lequel il s'était caché. Gardez est dégouté.

Tru reçoit ensuite un coup de fil de Meredith qui lui parle du dépistage de drogue et lui dit qu'elle l'a passé sans problème. Une fois la communication terminée, Meredith remercie un de ses collègues et lui tend un billet pour lui avoir fourni un échantillon pour le test. Une fois sa garde terminée, Tru rejoint Harrison et ils discutent tous les deux tout en marchant dans la rue. Elle est contente que tout se soit bien terminé mais est déçue que les 6 hommes soient en prison. Elle aperçoit soudain Luc marchant dans l'autre sens et ne peut s'empêcher de l'observer.

LINDSAY (holdingthe key to Tru’s apartment)
Now, who would’ve thought of hiding thespare under the doormat? You might want to consider a lighting fixture. Bothunique and efficient.
 
 (She walks over and sits on the end ofthe bed)
 
TRU

LINDSAY (gesturingto the bag)
Blueberry Danish. Tuna, dry on whole-wheat.And a veggie burrito from that place you like on Larkin

(he disappears. Davis turns to Tru)
 
DAVIS

TRU

 (She goes to walk away but then turnsaround)
 
Davis, do you thinkhe’s right? Do you think I take everything too seriously?

MEREDITH
Hi, come on in
 
MAN
I know we’re all working late these daysMeredith but uh, the board’s firm is insisting we implement a randomdrugs-testing program for our employees
 
MEREDITH
Now?
 
 (He nods)
 
Unbelievable. Can I have my assistant backwhen he’s done?
 
MAN
Well actually we’re all being tested.Liability issue.
 
 [Flashback of Meredith’s bag ofcocaine; flashback of Meredith taking it in the restroom]

HARRISON
Nice. (He looks up at Tru)
Did I do that yesterday?
 
TRU
Harrison
 
HARRISON
It’s a perfectly reasonable question, forsomeone like you. You gotta admit its fricking weird, Tru
 
TRU
I told you, not every day repeats. In fact,most of them don’t
 
HARRISON
That’s too bad. Because if your littlefantasy was real, today would be a hell of a day to do over
 
TRU
What do you mean?
 
HARRISON
You know, the whole Meredith thing
 
 (Tru looks bewildered)
 
She didn’t tell you? Drug test at heroffice today. She failed it and they fired her
 
TRU
Oh my God
 
HARRISON
So you see my point? You could actually goback, you could go back to today, bail Meredith out, we wouldn’t be having thisconversation
 
TRU
Harrison, I can’tcontrol when it happens
 
HARRISON
So what do we do?
 
TRU
Nothing, tonight. We’ll check in with hertomorrow, you know, see how she’s doing

Can I ask you a question?
 
TRU
Sure, Davis, anything
 
DAVIS
Does this lab coat make me look portly?
 
TRU
No, you look fine
 
DAVIS
I just overheard you mention that black wasmore, uh; I think you called it “slimming”. I was gonna see if they came in adifferent colour maybe
 
 (They enter the Morgue. There are fivetrolleys, each with a body on it covered by a sheet)
 
TRU
Whoa. Gardez must have been driving allover the city
 
DAVIS
Actually they all came in on the samepick-up. It’s five males, mid to late twenties. Time of death is between10:30pm and 11pm. I lifted the personals if you wanna start bagging
 
 (Tru looks over to the metal trays.There is a mobile phone, some coins, a pair of sunglasses, some keys, a comb,some cigarettes and a watch)
 
TRU
Any I.D’s?
 
DAVIS
Wallets were missing. The prelim toxreports shows four of them had pretty high levels of alcohol
 
TRU
Enough to kill them?
 
DAVIS
Probably not. There is something strangeabout this fifth guy – he had no alcohol in his system but he did have a traceof a chemical called Avlocardyl
 
 (Shot of the prelim report, showingNegative against 6-MAM, Methanol, Acetone, Isopropanol, and Positive againstAvlocardyl)
 
TRU (pickingup a wedding ring off the metal tray)
One of them was married
 
DAVIS
That’s a shame. What else can you tell me?
 
(Tru picks up a blue card withthe outline of a woman in blue and the word “FOREPLAY” down the side. She turnsit over; it says “Turquoise” on it)
 
TRU
One of them was making friends
 
8. INT. Tru on the computer in theMorgue Office. Night.
 (She looks up from typing at thecalendar, marked with today’s date “20”. Underneath is written “Consult withfamily – case#47-A12”, “consult w/ attending examiner” and, at the top in boldletters next to a star – “Lindsay’s Birthday!!”)
 
 [Flashback to Tru’s apartmentearlier in the day. LINDSAY: “Is there anything you wanna say to me?”]
 
TRU
Oh, I suck
 
(Someone knocks on the door. Lucenters, looking surprised to see Tru there)
 
LUC
Hello. I’m looking for Gardez…is he…
 
TRU
Out on a pick up. Can I take a message? (shepicks up a pad and a pen)
 
LUC
Sure, yeah. I’m a friend of a friend  Hehooked me up with a job interview and in case I didn’t get the gig I justthought I’d thank him while I was still in town
 
TRU
Job interview. Those are always fun. Whatwas it for?
 
LUC
Photographer
 
TRU
Post-mortem?
 
LUC
Crime scene. Upstairs – Sheriff’s office
 
TRU
Oh right of course. How’d it go?
 
LUC
I don’t know, uh, I was meeting with thesheriff for half an hour and then when I walked out I realised I had somethingstuck in my teeth
 
TRU
Sexy
 
LUC
Yeah…I’m not sure the sheriff thought so
 
 (They laugh)
 
TRU
I should get your name – for the message
 
LUC
It’s Luc, with a C
 
 (Tru stands up and shakes his hand)
 
TRU
Tru, with a U
 
 (Davis enters the Office)
 
DAVIS
Is this guy bothering you?
 
 (Tru is still holding Luc’s hand)
 
TRU
Yes, Davis. Please have him escorted fromthe building
 
DAVIS
Really?
 
TRU
No. Davis, this is Luc (she lets go ofhis hand)
 
LUC
Yeah, we met earlier. I got lost on the wayto the interview. Thanks for the directions
 
TRU
Well, I’m sure Gardez will be back prettysoon if you just wanna hang out till…
 
 (A man whispers “HELP ME”.Tru stops, she looks across through the blinded window out into the Morgue)
 
LUC
Are you okay?
 
TRU
Yeah, I...I’m fine, I just have to…
 
 (Man whispers “HELP ME”)
 (Close up on Tru’s face as she againlook towards the darkened Morgue. All is quiet, nothing is moving.)
 
TRU
Would you mind waiting here for one second?
 
LUC
No
 
TRU
I just need to…I’m sorry…Excuse me Davis
 
(She runs round Davis and out the doorinto the Morgue)
 
DAVIS
She does that a lot
 
9. INT. Morgue. Night.
 (Tru walks into the Morgue through thedouble doors and walks slowly over to the trolleys. They are all still,unmoving. She walks over to one of them and reaches out a hand to pull back thesheet. Before she can make contact, the face twists towards her)
 
DEAD MAN 1
HELP ME!
 
DEAD MAN 2
Save us!
 
DEAD MAN 3

[Flashbacks from the day as itrewinds]
 
10. INT. Tru’s bedroom. Morning.
 (Tru sits up in bed, panting forbreath. The door to her apartment closes. Camera pans over to show Lindsay walkingin)
 
LINDSAY
Who would have thought of putting the sparekey under the doormat? (she waves the key in the air) Very clever. Okayso…(she sits on the bed) I brought you…
 
TRU
A blueberry Danish, tuna on whole-wheat anda veggie burrito?
 
LINDSAY
Okay, how’d you know that?
 
TRU
The same way I know it’s your birthday
 
LINDSAY
Oh my God, you remembered! The sad thing isno-one else did…Oh, thank you! (she hugs Tru)
 
TRU

 (Tru and Harrison are walking together)
 
TRU
Look Harrison I don’t need you to believeme. I just need your help. This is the first time it wasn’t just one bodyasking for help, it was five. I didn’t see their faces, they came in with noI.Ds which means it’s gonna be five times harder for me to save them
 
HARRISON
Gotta be honest…it’s a bit early in the dayto be having this conversation
 
TRU
I think one of them was poisoned but I haveabsolutely no idea what happened to the other four
 
HARRISON
And you’re telling me this because…?
 
TRU
Because I need info! And you’re much morefamiliar with this world than I am
 
HARRISON
Listen, Starsky, if you’re asking me to beyour Hutch I’m gonna have to say “Thanks, but no thanks!”
 
 (Tru turns around and walks up to thedoor of the building in front of her. The sign next to her reads “FOREPLAY” –the same one as the calling card from one of the dead men)
 
TRU (pointingto the sign)
Strippers, Harr?
 
HARRISON
Okay. I’m in

[Flashback to Tru holding the callingcard in the Morgue, with the name “Turquoise” on the back]
 
BARMAN
We don’t give out that kind of informationto customers
 
TRU
Well, I’m not really a customer
 
BARMAN
Oh, you’re here to audition?
 
TRU
Do I look like a stripper to you?
 
BARMAN
A little bit
 
 (Tru looks offended, turns and walksaway from the bar over to Harrison)
 
TRU
I thought you said the bartenders kneweverything. I got nowhere with that guy
 
HARRISON
Well, did you “work it”?
 
TRU
What do you mean “work it”?
 
HARRISON
You gotta have an angle to gettinginformation Tru. Oh by the way, that “Turquoise” girl you’re looking for? Herreal name’s Tara. She’s got a day-job doing Telemarketing in the Hancock Building.
 
TRU (smiling)
No way!
 
HARRISON
Come on, Tru. You know I got a way with theladies! My friend here told me everything
 
TRU
Harrison thank you,seriously, I’ll call you later okay? (she runs off towards the exit)
 
HARRISON
Oh, right, yeah, I’m right behind you, I…(hemakes as if he’s going to get up but can’t take his eyes off the stripper. Thestripper lies down in front of him) I’m just gonna stay… check it out here.(He hands her more money) What’s up?

 (Some of Tara’s co-workers are lookinground at her. Tara takes off her headset and moves Tru to one side)
 
TARA
What are you doing, coming in here andasking questions like that?
 
TRU
Yeah, I’m sorry, my bad. I just didn’t knowhow to…
 
TARA
It’s okay. It’s just that no-one herereally knows what my other job is
 
TRU

TARA

TRU
Why does everyone think I look like a stripper?
 
CONCIERGE
It’s a bachelor party. Who else would yoube?
 
TRU

CONCIERGE
They’ve declined those options
 
TRU
So no-one but the guests will be in theroom tonight
 
CONCIERGE
And you
 
TRU (laughs)
And me. Oh, and one more thing, I had aquestion for the groom but I can’t seem to find his number
 
CONCIERGE
It’s not our practise to give out guest’spersonal information
 
TRU
Too bad, he hadn’t decided whether he wantsme naughty or nice
 
(The concierge looks up at her. Shesmiles)
 
15. INT. Office. Day

JOHN
No way I’m gonna cancel my bachelor party.It’s my last night of freedom
 
TRU
No, you don’t understand
 
JOHN
No, I think I do. Robin sent you didn’tshe?
 
TRU
No, that’s not what this…
 
JOHN
She hates the idea of me having this partyalmost as much as she hates the guys I invited
 
TRU
Robin’s not a fan of your friends?
 
JOHN
Okay now this is starting to freak me out.If Robin didn’t send you then who the hell are you?
 
TRU
I’m with the hotel, and there’s a problemwith your room, sir, so they sent me personally to explain the situation
 
JOHN
What’s wrong with the room?
 
TRU
We’re overbooked
 
JOHN
It has been way too long since these guyshave gotten together. There’s nothing that’s gonna get me to call this off, youunderstand?
 
TRU
Right, but –
 
JOHN
You know what, I’m just gonna call themanager and straighten this out (he picks up the telephone)

TRU
Homework. I’m studying for the MCATS
 
DAVIS
I can save you a lot of time. This is nevergonna be on the test
 
TRU
I like to be really prepared
 
DAVIS
Okay. Avlocardyl is a white, odourless,crystalline powder that’s soluble in water. Is that better?
 
TRU
Much. So it can be ingested without thevictim’s knowledge?
 
DAVIS
In a liquid, yes. But what victim?
 
TRU
Is there any way to tell if someone hasAvlocardyl in their system?
 
DAVIS
Not right away but after two or threehours, sure
 
TRU

DAVIS
They’d be dead

TRU

MEREDITH
Yeah, as long as her sister’s not in themiddle of a huge case which she is
 
TRU
Mere, I just… (she sits down oppositeher) Is everything okay?
 
MEREDITH

TRU

MEREDITH
Tru, you have three looks – 1 is “Have youheard from Harrison?”, 2 is “I miss mom” and 3 is “Are you clean Meredith?”.And judging by the downcast eyes I’m gonna go with number 3
 
 (Tru raises her eyebrows at her)
 
I’m clean, Tru. My last slip-up was over amonth ago, it’s in the past, God leave it there
 
TRU

ETHAN (wavingTru’s tray away)
You don’t think its wrong, all of us beinghere together?
 
GLASSES
I think what’s wrong is you bringing thatup. Why don’t you just relax, have another drink and just chill out. All thatstuff is in the past
 
 (During Glasses’ last words, Tru walksover to the bar and replaces the tray. She picks up a napkin and a pen.)
 
ETHAN
You’re right, you’re right

TRU (turninground)
Hey. Can I get you something?
 
BLAKE
No, no, I can hook myself up (he looksat the bottles underneath the bar)

You don’t want any of that, trust me. Thehotel always supplies the cheap stuff. (She picks up a bottle of the scotchshe brought with her, and a glass) We need to teach you to appreciate asmooth, well-aged scotch. Yeah? (She smiles, pouring his drink)
 
BLAKE
So John says you’re a gift from the hotel,huh? Be sure to tell your manager thanks
 
TRU
No problem –
 
BLAKE
Better yet, why don’t you give me his name?I’d like to do it myself
 
TRU
Actually he’s probably at home with thewife and kids by now. But if I do my job right, I’ll make sure he finds youfirst thing in the morning (she hands him his drink)
 
 (The sound of men chanting makes themboth turn round – the other guys have put on a home video recording on thetelevision. On the home video the guys are drinking and encouraging each otherto drink faster)

I’m doing great, thanks. Did you know ifyou squeeze all the bacterial out of the intestines you have enough to fill acoffee mug?
 
TRU
Hello Davis. Now about my question?
 
DAVIS
Carbonation. Not that I know of. I don’tthink. What, are you at a party?
 
 (Luc enters the Morgue, Davis looks up)
 
TRU (voiceover)
Davis?
 
LUC
So I’m guessing this isn’t the sheriff’soffice is it?
 
DAVIS
(To Tru) Hold on a second
(To Luc) It’s down the hall, up thestairs
 
TRU
Is that Luc? Wish him luck on his interview
 
DAVIS
(To Luc) Good luck on your interview
 
TRU
Oh, and tell him to check his teeth
 
DAVIS
Is he a friend of yours?
 
TRU
Could be. Just tell him!
 
DAVIS (callingafter Luc)
Hey, hey, excuse me! (Luc appears in thedoorway) You may wanna check your teeth
 
(Davis shrugs, pointing to the phone byhis ear)
 
LUC
Thanks… (he disappears, checking histeeth)
 
TRU
So, what about alcohol? How does it reactwith Avlocardyl?
 
DAVIS
Well it wouldn’t. Alcohol acts as a maskingagent, covering all signs of the drug in the body
 
TRU
So say I was to take a swig and then havethree, four martinis?
 
DAVIS
Should I be concerned with…?
 
TRU


It’s a simple question
 
DAVIS
Avlocardyl plus liqueur equals a dead bodywith no traceable cause of death
 
TRU
They were all poisoned. The alcohol coveredit up. Hey, thanks for the assist. (She hangs up, and turns to look at thegroup)

TRU
You don’t look so hot. If I didn’t know youweren’t drinking, I’d cut you off
 
ETHAN
Needed some air. It’s a tough room
 
TRU
You guys haven’t seen each other sincecollege right? I mean, shouldn’t this be one big happy reunion?
 
ETHAN
Right. Everyone says they’re the best yearsof your life. It doesn’t always work out that way
 
TRU
Are you okay?
 
ETHAN
Just some things I wish I could go back andundo, you know? Make right. Do you ever feel that way?
 
TRU
All the time
 
ETHAN
I mean, maybe some of these guys can dealwith what happened but –
 
TRU
What? Did something happen back in college?

DAVIS
That must be some party. Let me check

Tru, Don’t. I’ve been listening to yourmildly entertaining stories all day. Obviously something’s going on in yourlife. I don’t know if you’re in trouble or what but I just hope that one dayyou’ll realize you can be honest with me
 
 (Tru remains silent, looking guilty. Davis slowly turns around and walks away. Tru runs out of the Morgue and into thecorridor. As she runs past, Luc comes in through another door and walks to theElevator. Tru hears him, turns around and watches him go into the elevator. Thedoors close.)
 
Cut to: Shot of the Hancock building
 
Cut to: Tru running down the corridor,back to the room.
 
27. INT. Corridor. Night.
 (Tru knocks on the door, there is noanswer. Then Blake opens it. He sees her, frowns and comes out into thecorridor, pulling the door to)
 
BLAKE
Maybe I didn’t make myself clear
 
TRU
Maybe I wasn’t listening. I know somethinghappened back in college and I know what you’re willing to do to cover it up
 
BLAKE
No-one knows anything except for the fiveguys in that room
 
TRU
What happened to the girl? Who was she? Youcan’t hide from the past…
 
BLAKE
Don’t you think I know that? Was it Ethan?What did he say?
 
TRU
No, nothing. He just…
 
 (She looks down at the drink Blake isholding. It has ice in it)
 
Ice… I thought it was you, but you didn’tplan tonight, did you?
 
BLAKE
No, what does that have to do withanything?
 
 (Cell phone rings. Tru answers it)
 
TRU
Yeah?
 
HARRISON
I don’t know what you’re up to, but Ifinally found Robin Wilson. Only she isn’t any bride
 
BLAKE
Who’s that?
 
TRU (to Harrison)
What?
 
BLAKE
Get off the phone, now!
 
HARRISON
Yeah, she caught the guy cheating on her.Called the wedding off. That was three months ago
 
TRU
Right (she hangs up)
 
BLAKE
You’ve got ten seconds to explain yourself
 
TRU
This isn’t a bachelor party, Blake. Thewedding was called off months ago
 
BLAKE
That’s crazy. Why else would John want usall here?
 
TRU
Because you share a secret he doesn’t wantyou to tell. Whatever happened back in college, whatever happened to thatgirl…It was John. John did it. Let me help you
 
28. INT. Party room. Night.
 (Blake and Tru re-enter the room. Blakeputs his glass down on the side. The other guys are sitting round the tableplaying cards)
 
JOHN
What’s she doing here? I thought I told youto get rid of her?
 
BLAKE
She’s got an interesting story I thoughtyou might all wanna hear
 
JOHN
Not to be a pain in the ass but, we had herthrown out. Now you want us to listen to her?
 
BLAKE
I think we’ve all been silent long enough
 
TRU
This isn’t a bachelor party
 
 (Glasses and Curly look up in surprise)
 
JOHN
Not anymore. You scared off the stripper,we’re running out of booze
 
TRU
John and his fiancée broke up. Months ago.Any of you guys know that?
 
 (Ethan and Hat look over at John)
 
ETHAN
Is that true John?
 
JOHN
Look, I can explain everything
 
 (Silence)
 
Come on, guys, best night of our lives,remember?
 
 (Everyone continues to stare at him)
 
Thanks guys
 
 (He walks away into the room Tara used to change in. Tru hands Blake the bag of antidote)
 
BLAKE
No, don’t
 
TRU
Just give me a minute
 
29. INT. Changing room. Night.
(John is rummaging in a bag. Tru entersthe room)
 
TRU
Going somewhere?
 
JOHN (pickingup his drink)
What’s the point in hanging around? Youembarrassed me in front of my friends
 
TRU
They can’t be that good friends John. Theystill thought you were getting married
 
JOHN
Look, it’s not exactly an easy thing. Toadmit that your relationship failed, you know? I was gonna tell them alltonight…I just…I thought everyone could use a good party
 
TRU
With plenty of drinks. On the rocks right?God that’s a long way to go to cover up a murder
 
JOHN
I don’t know what you’re talking about
 
TRU
Let me fill you in on a few things. Thefirst is, one of your friends wasn’t drinking alcohol tonight. So sure he’s gotthe Avlocardyl in his system, but without the alcohol to hide it? At somepoint, someone’s gonna figure out what you did. The second, is a littlebartending trick I picked up. Even if you’re drinking it straight, like you? Ifyou wanna keep the drink cool, you shake a little crushed ice in the bottom ofthe glass.
 
 (John looks down at his glass)
 
Yes, every glass John. Of course, if youdidn’t mess with the ice, then you won’t need the anti-dote your best man hasin the next room
 
 (John puts the glass down, lookingsick. He moves quickly over to the doors and opens them, only to be confrontedby Blake, Ethan, Glasses, Hat and Curly, standing staring at him.)
 
30. INT. Corridor. Night.
 (John is being led away in handcuffs bypolice. Tru follows them, and stops by the entrance. Some of the guys are beingquestioned by police. Blake comes up to Tru)
 
BLAKE
Five years late
 
TRU
That’s what I don’t get. Why now, after allthis time?
 
BLAKE
Three weeks ago I sent him a letter sayingI was going to the police
 
TRU
You?
 
BLAKE
I couldn’t take it anymore. And I tried tomake it right, instead I almost got us all killed
 
TRU
What happened?
 
BLAKE
Catherine Hill
 
 [Flashback of the girl on the homevideo footage]
 
We didn’t even know her name until we readit in the papers. She was a freshman, made the mistake of coming to agraduation party
 
 [Flashback of Catherine at the graduationparty, John kissing her)
 
John got her alone in a room
 
 [Flashback
 Catherine: “That’s alittle close isn’t it?”
 (John continues kissing her, trying toundress her.)
 Catherine: “That hurts! Stop it!I told you no”
 (She pushes John away, and makes forthe door. John catches her arm)
 John: Who said it was up to you?
 Catherine: Let go of me!
 (John yanks her backwards back into theroom hard. She falls into the glass coffee table, her head making contact withthe glass. It smashes everywhere) ]
 
BLAKE
A girlfriend once said he slapped her. Hedenied it and we believed him. And then when he told us what happened thatnight was an accident, we didn’t believe him.
 
 [Flashback of Catherine lying deadon the floor, the guys all staring down at her]
 
But we didn’t say anything…to anybody
 
TRU
You sent a letter. That’s something
 
BLAKE
I didn’t have the guts to sign it. Hedidn’t know which one of us was turning him in
 
TRU
So he had to kill all of you
 
BLAKE
I’m sorry for not trusting you. But witheverything, I barely trust myself
 
TRU
You did the right thing
 
 (A policeman comes up behind Blake)
 
BLAKE
Five years too late
 
 (Tru nods. The policeman leads Blakeout)

TRU
You need something?
 
GARDEZ
How’d you know? Ah, Tru… (He sits up,gathering the sheet together) Tru, you take the fun out of everything!

Hello?
 
Cut to: MEREDITH (in her office)
I’m sure you won’t be surprised to hearthere was a drugs test at my office
 
TRU
Yeah?
 
MEREDITH
Obviously you knew something and opted notto tell me so I just called specifically to not say thank you
 
Cut to: TRU
Meredith, I…
 
Cut to: MEREDITH
But in case you’re curious, I passed thetest. Maybe now you’ll get off my back and let my past stay in the past
 
Cut to: TRU
Meredith I wasn’t trying to prove a point,I was just trying to help…And I did, didn’t I?
 
Cut to: MEREDITH
Goodnight, Tru

You wanted to see me?
 
MEREDITH
Close the door
 
 (She reaches into her bag and hands himsome money)
 
Thanks for covering that for me
 
ASSISTANT
No problem. Never been paid to provide asample before. But I gotta ask, how did you know there was gonna be a drug testtoday?
 
MEREDITH
I just had a feeling
 
33. EXT. Street. Night
 (Tru and Harrison are walking alongtogether)
 
TRU
I just don’t get it. I went through allthis to save these five guys and now there’s a chance they’ll go to jail.What’s the point?
 
HARRISON
Look, Tru, this thing you’re dealing with?Maybe for you it’s about more than just saving people. See, these guys had asecret and they put it to rest. Maybe, I don’t know, maybe you can try and dothe same
 
TRU (smilesat him and takes his arm)
So, Lindsay has this theory…
 
HARRISON
Oh…
 
TRU
That one out of every seven guys is a goodone. I just spent an entire evening with six guys that were bad, so does thatmake you number seven?
 
HARRISON (laughs)
Wouldn’t bet on it. Don’t worry, Tru. He’sout there
 
 (Tru suddenly sees Luc walking acrossthe street. She watches him walk past, longingly)
 
HARRISON
You know him?
 
TRU
No. Not yet.

Sonmi451 (14:38)

L'espoir fait vivre comme on dit. ^^

stanary (14:39)

Oui c'est ce qu'on dit ! Alors et toi dis moi tu travailles dans quoi ?

Sonmi451 (14:41)

Moi je suis assistante maternelle mais en ce moment en congé parental.

Sonmi451 (14:44)

stanary (14:45)

Alors dis moi, tu fais quoi de beau ?

Sonmi451 (14:47)

Là en ce moment, je m'occupe de la migration des épisodes de Friends pendant que mes oreilles sont en train d'écouter si bébé dort toujours. Et puis mes yeux regardent de temps en temps, vers la fenetre pour voir si le grand arrive avec son papa. ^^

Sonmi451 (14:47)

Et toi?

stanary (14:49)

La migration ?
Bon pour moi faut pas chercher hein. Je n'ai pas de vie donc je suis chez moi entrain de ne rien faire si ce n'est lire

Sonmi451 (14:49)

Et en parlant du loup, il sort du bois. Mon grand vient d'arriver.

stanary (14:51)

Eh bah il est autonome ce grand !

Sonmi451 (14:51)

La migration c'est le passage d'un guide épisode à un autre guide, soit de l'ancien au nouveau.

Sonmi451 (14:52)

Je vais devoir te laisser. Il est autonome oui d'une certaine façon, mais il a encore "que" 5 ans.

Sonmi451 (14:52)

A bientôt peut être.

stanary (14:56)
