Elle doit maintenant sauver deux personnes, sauf que en forçant les évènements, Tru provoque une réaction en chaîne ...
Un doute s'installe: Que faire ? Essayer de sauver toutes les personnes ou qu'une seule afin de sortir de cercle infernal de retour en arrière ?

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

Rentrant chez elle, Tru trouve Harrison en compagnie de ses partenaires de poker ravageant son appartement. Harrison, une valise à ses côtés, lui avoue qu’il a été éjecté de son logement et il est évident qu’il projette de passer la nuit chez sa soeur.

En ville, dans une superette, un adolescent vole à l’étalage une barre chocolatée quand un homme, l’air éperdu, entre dans le magasin. L’homme s’approche du caissier et fait un hold-up. Le gosse décide de s’enfuir de la boutique ce qui perturbe le braqueur qui devient le braqué. Le caissier, une arme au poing, tire et tue l’homme.

A la morgue, Davis demande à Tru de préparer le corps pour une autopsie. Le corps n’est autre que celui du braqueur, Michael Mancuso, un homme au milieu de ses 30 ans. Avant que Tru n’ait le temps de commencer la préparation, le corps du mort revient à la vie. "Aide moi !"

Retour dans le temps...

Tru se réveille au début de la journée et saute du divan. Luc l’observe... clairement malheureux qu’il y ait une partie de sa vie qu’elle ne peut pas lui révéler. Alors qu’elle sort de chez elle, Tru téléphone à son frère pour lui expliquer qu’il est sur le point d’être expulsé de chez lui. "Dis moi quelque chose que je ne sais pas !", répond Harrison sur un trottoir où il est entouré par toutes ses possessions matérielles.

Tru utilise la seule information à sa disposition pour sauver Michael grâce à un reçu de la banque ATM trouvé dans la poche de celui-ci. Michael arrive à l’heure à la banque, insert sa carte mais ne reçoit rien. Il est vraiment exaspéré par ce qu’il a pu lire sur le reçu. Tru essaie alors une discussion sympathique mais n’obtient aucune réponse. C’est alors qu’elle se décide à le suivre. Elle arrive devant une clinique où elle peut l’observer et le voir s’exaspérer encore plus. 

Dans la superette. Michael se déplace lentement dans le couloir central. Avec une main prise de tremblement, il prend quelque chose et se déplace vers le caissier. A ce moment, il se penche au-dessus du comptoir avec sa main dans la poche et exige tout l’argent disponible dans la caisse. Tru hurle pour qu’il s’arrête. Michael se tourne vers celle-ci et le commis saisit cette occasion pour sortir un pistolet et vise Michael.

Soudainement, le gosse qui faisait du vol à l’étalage se met à courir et percute des boîtes de conserve en exposition. Michael utilise cette distraction pour essayer de faire tomber le pistolet des mains du caissier. Ils commencent à se battre mais le caissier est fatalement blessé par Michael, qui, choqué, tombe en larmes. Alors que Tru allait composer le 911, les yeux du commis s’ouvrent et le mort demande à la jeune femme de l’aider.

Retour en arrière... encore.

Tru se réveille. "Ceci ne peut pas se reproduire !". Elle appelle Harrison et lui offre un endroit provisoire pour qu’il puisse se reposer : la morgue. Tru et Davis discutent des évènements de la nuit dernière. Tru n’arrive pas à comprendre pourquoi elle doit sauver un homme qui lui a demandé de l’aide et qui a commis un crime. "Qui est le prochain ? Un fou meurtrier ?"

Elle décide d’aller à la banque ATM en se faisant passer pour le commis de la superette et donne à Michael un tuyau en disant que le magasin va être fermé aujourd’hui pour inventaire. L’homme n’a aucune idée de ce qu’elle dit parce qu’en ce moment, il ne sait même pas que le magasin existe. Il l’envoit promener... encore.

Pendant ce temps, Harrison, à la morgue en compagnie d’un Davis suspicieux, regarde les corps en les sortant des cryptes et les sollicite pour que ceux-ci l’appellent à l’aide.

Tru suit Michael jusqu’en bas de la rue, vers la superette. Croisant un policier qui allait rédiger une contravention, Tru l’interpelle et annonce que l’homme qui vient juste d’entrer dans le magasin va commettre un hold-up. Les deux personnes entrent dans le magasin et voient Michael, la main dans la poche, en train de braquer le commis. Le policier braque à son tour Michael et lui demande de sortir la main de sa poche, mais il s’avère que Michael était armé avec une brosse à cheveux.

Apeuré, l’adolescent observe la scène et décide de s’enfuir. Il sort en trombe du magasin en heurtant des bouteilles de soda. Commençant à courir dans la rue, il décide de traverser mais se fait renverser par un taxi et meurt sur le coup. Michael sort pour voir ce qui s’est produit. Tru s’approche de l’adolescent mort, se baisse et entend soudainement "Aide moi !"

Le jour se répète une nouvelle fois...

Tru se réveille, paniquée. Que va-t-il se produire si ce jour continue à se répéter… pour toujours ? Davis décide alors de lui montrer le bon côté : chaque fois qu’elle revivra la journée, elle en apprendra plus. Par exemple, maintenant, elle sait que Michael n’est pas réellement armé. Davis suggère que si la journée se répète autant que cela, c’est sûrement parce qu’une personne est censée mourir. Tru lui répond qu’elle n’est pas intéressée pour jouer à Dieu car elle ne veut pas décider qui doit mourir et qui doit vivre. Davis lui indique que ce n’est pas ce qu’elle doit faire – elle doit juste écouter son intuition.

Cette fois, Tru décide de ne pas passer par la banque et de filer directement à la clinique où Michael allait juste après. Elle se fait passer en tant que nouvelle employée qui était attendue aujourd’hui et accède au dossier de Michael. Elle découvre que la fille de Michael est dans un état critique à cause de son coeur et a besoin d’une médecine chère pour rester en vie jusqu’à ce qu’elle puisse subir une greffe du coeur... et l’attente risque encore d’être longue étant donné son type de sang et sa position sur la liste d’attente.

Mais il s’avère que Michael a perdu son travail il y a six mois de cela et n’a pas les moyens d’acheter le médicament pour sa fille que la pharmacie facture à 500 $. A ce moment, Michael arrive dans la clinique et exige d’avoir plus de médicament. Il dit au directeur que la respiration de sa fille s'est beaucoup dégradée et il n’a aucun médicament à lui donner. Le directeur lui demande plus de temps mais Michael, hors de lui, sort de la clinique.

Tru décide de le suivre et lui promet d’obtenir le médicament – gratuitement et dans l’heure – s’il promet de ne pas faire n’importe quoi de stupide. Après un moment de réflexion, Michael semble véritablement ému par ce geste.

Davis arrive à obtenir le médicament et Tru décide d’aller chez Michael avec le remède mais elle arrive trop tard. Elizabeth, 11 ans, est morte. Michael est en train de réconforter son épouse pendant que Tru s’approche avec précaution vers le corps sans vie. Soudain, les yeux d’Elizabeth s’ouvrent et elle chuchote "Aide moi !"

Le jour recommence pour une énième fois...

Tru n’arrive pas à comprendre pourquoi le jour se réitère alors qu’elle a sauvé Michael pour que celui-ci puisse voir sa fille mourir. Davis lui suggère que tout ce qui est arrivé jusqu’ici a un lien avec la fille pour une certaine raison.

Tru rattrape Michael à la banque ATM à la même heure… mais elle ne se fait pas passer en tant que commis de superette ou autre chose. Elle lui dit simplement qu’elle n’a pas le temps d’expliquer quoi que ce soit mais sa fille doit aller à l’hôpital maintenant. Elle continue à lui dire que l’aide sociale ne les aidera pas, ni la médecine. Tru finit par lui demander s’il y a quelque chose qu’il ne ferait pas pour aider sa fille. Michael secoue la tête : "Je mourrais pour elle". Tru passe son téléphone cellulaire à Michael et celui-ci commence à composer un numéro.

Mais un homme arrive, sort un couteau en le pointant vers Michael et exige tout son argent. Tru reconnaît l’agresseur. Elle l’avait vu à chaque journée précédente : il ne faisait que jeter un paquet de chewing-gum en ratant la poubelle. Michael ne peut pas donner son argent car il n’est pas solvable. Tru prie l’agresseur de ne pas blesser Michael et lui donne son collier à la place. L’attention de l’agresseur est accaparée par le scintillement du collier et il lâche Michael. Celui-ci essaye de donner un coup de pied sur la main de l’homme pour qu’il lâche son poignard afin d’essayer de protéger Tru. Malheureusement il rate son geste et l’agresseur le poignarde à plusieurs reprises dans l’estomac.

Michael est amené rapidement aux urgences. Les médecins arrêtent le brancard pas loin de celui d’une fille. Michael la reconnaît : c’est sa fille et elle est sans connaissance dans son lit. Les médecins essaient de ranimer la gamine. En attendant, Michael perd beaucoup de sang et le chirurgien de trauma n’est nul part en vue.

Soudain, Tru se remémore une de ses conversations avec Michael où il avait déclaré qu’il pourrait mourir pour elle. Puis elle se rappelle de sa conversation avec la directrice de la clinique : "Et avec des patients 0-Neg comme Elizabeth, les chances qu’un coeur approprié devienne disponible sont...". Tru finit par terminer la phrase : "Très mince".

Tru se rend compte que ça ne pouvait pas fonctionner la première fois parce que le coeur de Michael avait été détruit par la blessure par balle. Son job n’était pas de le sauver lui, mais de sauver son coeur. Alors que le médecin annonce que Michael est mort, Tru lui explique que la fille de celui-ci à besoin du coeur de son père. L’équipe se déplace rapidement pour préparer la greffe.

Tru rentre chez elle après avoir vécu la plus longue journée de sa vie et est heureuse qu’elle ne recommence pas. Harrison est là pour lui dire bonjour mais cette fois, il a de bonnes nouvelles. Il est parvenu à fournir assez d’argent pour payer le loyer du mois dernier et celui de ce mois. Comment ?, disons juste qu’une fois que Luc est entré dans la partie de poker, les choses ont commencé à aller dans le sens d’Harrison.

PROLOGUE
 
 Tru walks down the corridor towards her apartment. Inside one of her neighbour’s apartments, dance music plays loudly. She frowns and walks on, into her own apartment.
 
 She opens the door to see Harrison and two of his buddies sitting in her living room – it’s a complete mess
 
TRU
Harrison!
 
 (He can’t hear her, the music is too loud. Tru walks quickly over to the stereo and switches it off. Harrison looks up)
 
TRU
What the hell is going on?
 
 HARRISON (laughing, nervously. He gets up and walks over to Tru)
This, guys, is Tru! My kind, caring, and did I mention beautiful, sister
 
TRU
(To his buddies) Nice to meet you guys
(To Harrison) Explain!
 
HARRISON
Ah, well, you know how you and I depend on each other?
 
TRU
Harrison
 
HARRISON
You know the old saying, mi casa es su casa
 
TRU
Harrison!
 
HARRISON
How about the biblical quotation that states: “Let she without sin, cast the first…”
 
TRU
Harrison, just tell me what happened
 
HARRISON
My landlord. A real stickler for the whole “pay the rent” thing
 
 (Tru looks down at the floor beside the table: Harrison’s things are packed up in bags)
 
TRU
You got evicted?!
 
HARRISON
Which brings us back to mi casa
 
 (Tru looks down at the floor again, there is water coming from somewhere)
 
TRU
What’s that water?
 
HARRISON
Oh, yeah, you might not wanna, er…
 
 (Tru walks round the table to the sink. It’s full to the brim with water)
 
TRU
What is that? (She turns on him, furiously) Luc just fixed the sink this morning! What did you do?
 
HARRISON
Nothing!
 
 (Harrison’s buddies are laughing, Harrison joins in. Off Tru’s look, he hastily stops laughing)
 
Guess you had to be there…
 
TRU
Why couldn’t you have just gone to Lindsay’s?
 
HARRISON
Uh, because, telling your new girlfriend you’ve just been evicted isn’t very effective pillow talk
 
 (Tru raises her eyebrows at him, as if to say, “So?” Harrison gets it)
 
Okay! We’re out. Looks like you need your alone time
 
 (Harrison’s buddies get up)
 
BUDDY 1 (in the background)
Man, you said she was cool
 
TRU
Thanks
 
HARRISON
Lets go, boys. I can take a hint
 
 (He picks up his bags)
 
Zachary…
 
 (He throws a bag to Zachary)
 
HARRISON (cont’d, as they are walking out the door)
Oh, by the way, there’s some more beer in the bathtub if you want to…uh…
 
 (Tru points out the door)
 
Yeah. Right. Yeah
 
 (He disappears, closing the door)
 
1. INT. Food Market. DAY.
(Siren wails in the distance. A young boy 10-12, holding a skateboard, is looking at the chocolate bars. He chooses one, slips it into his pocket. He looks around. Michael Mancuso enters the store. He stands by one of the shelves to look at something, and then walks over to the counter)
 
MICHAEL
Open up the register
 
CLERK
Excuse me?
 
MICHAEL
You heard me, open it up!
 
 (He moves his hand in his pocket, pulling his jacket up so the clerk can see it’s the shape of a gun. The clerk immediately realises its serious)
 
CLERK
Hey, there’s nothing. There’s nothing here. The cash just went out an hour ago
 
 (The skateboarding boy looks up, scared)
 
MICHAEL
Then give me what you have! Now!
 
 (The boy makes a run for it, knocking over a display of cola bottles. Michael is distracted; he looks over to the boy. As he is looking away, the clerk reaches under the counter and pulls out a gun, pointing it at Michael. He reaches into his own pocket. The clerk shoots.)

3. INT. Morgue. NIGHT.
 
DAVIS
So you don’t mind?
 
TRU
I am perfectly capable of prepping a body solo. Besides, you don’t look so hot
 
DAVIS
A word of advice, stay away from the shrimp sandwich at that new deli across the street
 
TRU
Ouch
 
DAVIS (holding his belly)
You know actually I’m, um...if you’ll excuse me…
 
 (He hurries off in the other direction)
 
3. INT. Morgue crypt. NIGHT.
 (Tru is prepping a body. She puts on surgical gloves)
 
TRU
Hey there
 
 (She looks over the body. It’s the man from the general store)
 
I’m Tru. And you are?
 
(She reaches into his pocket and pulls out an ATM receipt. It says: 10:18am, and “Insufficient Funds”, the figure -$432.18)
 
In the red
 
 (She glances down at him. He has a bloody gunshot wound to his chest)
 
How about a name…
 
 (She about to walk over to find out his name, when he grabs her arm)
 
MICHAEL
Help me
 
 [Flashes of the days images as they rewind]
 
4. INT. Tru’s apartment. DAY.
 (Tru wakes up on her sofa. Luc is fixing the sink)
 
LUC
Bad dream?
 
TRU
Yeah. Bad dream. What am I doing out here?
 
LUC
Well, the plan was you, me, wine and a movie. The reality was you, wine, passed out on the couch
 
 (Tru smiles, sheepishly)
 
Anyway, sorry if I woke you. I wanted to take care of this
 
 (He gestures to the sink)
 
 [Flashback: the sink overflowing with water. TRU: Luc just fixed the sink this morning, what did you do?]
 
TRU
You’re fixing it
 
LUC
Yeah. Like you’ve been asking me to all week
 
 (She blows him a kiss, and puts on her shoes)
 
LUC (shaking his head, not happy)
And she’s off
 
TRU
Yeah, I’m meeting Lindsay for breakfast
 
LUC
On a weekday? Doesn’t she work?
 
TRU
She’s taking a sick day
 
LUC
How do you know that? You just woke up
 
TRU
Because it’s a girl thing
 
LUC
Mm-hm. Aren’t you gonna change first?
 
TRU (putting on her jacket)
These clothes are fine. Besides, I’m running late
 
LUC
Okay. All right, here’s the thing. I don’t even mind your crazy excuses about where you have to go all the time, what I do mind is you feel like there’s a part of your life you have to keep hidden from me
 
TRU
No, it’s nothing. Look, I’ll make it up to you tonight. Just bring coffee
 
 (She kisses him, and dashes out)
 
5. INT. Corridor. DAY.
 (Tru is on her cellphone. Brian comes out his apartment with his guitar)
 
BRIAN
Hey Tru
 
 (She holds up a hand to silence him. He stands, strumming his guitar)
 
HARRISON (voice-over)
Hello
 
TRU
Hey Harrison, it’s me. I’ve got some bad news
 
HARRISON (voice-over)
Give it to me
 
TRU
You’re gonna be evicted today
 
Cut to: HARRISON
Yeah tell me something I don’t know
 
(He is sitting outside on the sidewalk, in his dressing gown, eating cereal, surrounded by bags, boxes and a goldfish bowl with a goldfish in)
 
TRU (voice-over)
Meredith’s still in rehab, why don’t you just crash at her place?
 
HARRISON
Or what about yours?
 
Cut to: TRU
Been there. Hated that
 
Cut to: HARRISON
Ah, a dreaded rewind day. So what did I do?
 
Cut to: TRU
Poker with the boys, food on my couch, flood in my kitchen
 
Cut to: HARRISON
Tru, I am shocked. Shocked! I would never do anything…whoa…wait, was I winning?
 
Cut to: TRU
Bye, Harr
 
 (She turns to Brian, who is strumming his guitar)
 
I’m kind of in a…
 
BRIAN
This will just take a sec. I’m writing this sock and I can’t get the last lyric. Okay, check this out… (He strums)
(sings) I’m living out loud, I’m driving right through, will you meet me there…
 
TRU
(sings) Will you be true?
 
BRIAN
Ah, nice little pun there. “True”
 
TRU
No, that’s not what I meant…
 
BRIAN
That’s not quite what I’m looking for…more of a…
 
 (He looks up, Tru has already walked away)
 
All right…
 
6. INT. Morgue. DAY.
 
DAVIS (on cellphone)
So if the body asked for help, why didn’t you come into work first and do a little background?
 
Cut to: TRU (outside ATM)
Because he asked before I got anything to go on. No name, no personals. I’m lucky I got the ATM receipt
 
 (She looks up at the wall, it reads 342 North Clark Street)
 
 [Flashback of Tru looking at the ATM receipt: TRU “And you are…?”]
 
TRU (looks at her watch)
He should be here any minute
 
DAVIS (voice-over)
You got nothing else?
 
Cut to: DAVIS sitting in the Morgue office, tucking into a shrimp sandwich
 
TRU (voice-over)
Bullet wound to the chest
 
Cut to: TRU on the street
Wait, Davis, put the sandwich down
 
Cut to: DAVIS
Why?
 
Cut to: TRU
Davis, it’s a rewind day. You want details or you wanna just trust me?
 
Cut to: DAVIS
Done
 
(He throws the sandwich into the wastebasket)
 
Cut to: TRU
Okay look, here he comes. I’ll call you later
 
(She follows him into the alley, up to the ATM. He inserts his card and his pin code.)
 
 [Flashback of Tru holding the ATM receipt. TRU: “In the red”]
 
 (The ATM beeps and the receipt comes out. Michael takes it, looks at it, then hits the ATM machine)
 
TRU
ATM can really ruin your day, huh?
 
 (Michael stares at her, ignores her and walks off. Tru waits for a second, then follows him)
 
 (Shot of the street length, Tru following Michael)
 
 (A man walks past Tru, throws a sweet wrapper into a nearby trashcan and misses. Tru looks behind her, but the man walks on without picking it up.)
 
 (Tru follows Michael for a while longer, until he turns into “Community Health Service” building)
 
7. INT. Health Center. DAY.
 
MICHAEL (to the Front Desk Nurse on the desk)
Hey. Can I just go on through?
 
 (Front Desk Nurse nods and buzzes the door)
 
Thanks
 
 (Tru enters the building and tries to follow after Michael)
 
FRONT DESK NURSE
Can I help you?
 
TRU
Yes, you can. There’s a man who just went in before me
 
FRONT DESK NURSE
Are you a relative?
 
TRU
No, but…
 
FRONT DESK NURSE
Nobody goes back there unless they have an appointment. Do you have an appointment?
 
 (Tru is silent)
 
Didn’t think so. I’m gonna have to ask you to take a seat
 
TRU
And I’m gonna have to ask you to bend the rules. Otherwise, you’re gonna have a situation on your hands
 
FRONT DESK NURSE
I think I already do
 
 (She picks up the phone and dials. Tru sighs)
 
8. EXT. Street outside Health Center. DAY.
 (A security guard shows Tru out)
 
TRU
Yeah, yeah, yeah
 
 (She sighs, looks around. Then she sees Michael come out the back of the Health Center. She follows after him again)
 
 (Her cellphone rings)
 
TRU
What’s up, Harrison?
 
Cut to: HARRISON (in Meredith’s apartment, the alarm wailing)
I went to Meredith’s like you said…
 
TRU (voice-over)
So you broke in?
 
Cut to: HARRISON
Well I don’t have a key. And nobody told me she installed this insane security system! So what’s the password?
 
Cut to: TRU (she can’t hear properly, the alarm is drowning Harrison out)
What?
 
 (A woman runs past her, trying to get to her car before the traffic cop sticks a ticket on it)
 
WOMAN
Wait! Wait! I’m coming…
 
 (He sticks the ticket to her windshield)
 
WOMAN
Oh, thanks a lot!
 
 (His dispatch radio sounds: “We’ve got a robbery on the corner of Clarke and Fourth. Nearest unit respond immediately”)
 
 (The cop runs off in the opposite direction)
 
HARRISON (voice-over)
The password! What is the stupid password!
 
 (Tru sees Michael going into the Food Market)
 
TRU
Sorry Harrison, I’ve gotta call you back
 
Cut to: HARRISON
What?! (frustrated) Ohhh….argh!
 
 (He turns around, and notices two security guards standing at the doorway)
 
Oh, fellas. It is so good to see you!
 
 (He pats each of them on the shoulder with his hands. Then he bolts down the corridor)
 
SECURITY 1
Hey, kid!
 
9. INT. Food Market. DAY.
 (The skateboarding kid puts a chocolate bar into his pocket. Michael enters, looking around. He looks over at the clerk – he’s busy doing a crossword. We see what Michael was doing the first time round: slipping a hairbrush into his pocket to act as the shape of a gun. Michael sighs, and walks over to the counter. Tru walks into the store)
 
MICHAEL
Just give me the money
 
CLERK
There’s nothing here
 
 (The kid looks up)
 
MICHAEL (moving the hairbrush in his jacket so the clerk can see the shape, it looks like he has a gun in his pocket)
Now!
 
TRU
Don’t!
 
 (Michael is distracted, looks over at Tru. The clerk takes advantage of his distraction, taking his gun from under the counter and pointing it at Michael. The kid runs out of the store, knocking over the display of cola bottles. The clerk is distracted now, looking over at where the kid has run to. Michael knocks the gun from the clerk’s hand, it rolls into the corner. They both dive for it, struggling to grab hold of it. The gun fires. The clerk falls to the floor)
 
TRU
Oh my God…
 
MICHAEL
I’m sorry
 
 (Tru kneels by the clerk)
 
TRU
Hey…
 
MICHAEL
I didn’t mean to…
 
TRU
Hey, can you hear me?
 
MICHAEL (sobbing)
Oh God, I’m sorry
 
TRU
Talk to me…hey, hey, hey…come on…
 
(He doesn’t respond. Tru takes out her cellphone and dials 911)
 
MICHAEL
No, please, no…
 
TRU
Stay with me…
 
 (The clerk’s eyes close)
 
No, no, no…
 
MICHAEL
Is he…?
 
(Tru looks up at him)
 
MICHAEL (cont’d)
No… (Dissolves into sobs)
 
 (Tru looks down at the clerk. His head twists towards Tru)
 
CLERK
Save me!
 
 [Flashes of the days images as it rewinds for the second time]
 
10. INT. Tru’s apartment. DAY.
 (Tru sits up on the couch)
 
TRU
This can’t be happening…
 
LUC
Bad dream?
 
TRU
More like a recurring nightmare
 
 [Fade to Black]
 [Flashes of the days images as they rewind]
 
11. INT. Tru’s apartment. DAY.
 
LUC
Well sorry if I woke you, I wanted to take care of this
 
TRU (putting her shoes on)
Right. Thanks. Hey, sorry about crashing out last night. I swear I’ll make it up to you
 
 (She kisses him, then puts her coat on)
 
LUC
And she’s off. Where you going this time?
 
TRU
The library
 
LUC
Doesn’t open till 12
 
TRU
Right, I know, I’m going to the university library
 
LUC
Oh. For what?
 
TRU
For a work thing. Are we playing 20 Questions?
 
LUC (slightly annoyed)
No. Just two
 
TRU
Look it’s no fun for me either, but I really gotta go. Oh, and don’t worry about the sink. I don’t think its meant to be fixed
 
LUC
I can handle it
 
TRU
I didn’t mean…I know you can…thank you. Bye
 
LUC (to himself)
Anytime
 
12. EXT. Harrison’s apartment. DAY.
 (He’s sitting in his dressing gown in a deckchair on the street, eating breakfast, on his cellphone)
 
TRU (voice-over)
No Harr, mi casa es mi casa
 
HARRISON
So you’re asking me to take up residence in a building where all my neighbours are dead?
 
Cut to: TRU in the corridor in her apartment block
I’m asking you to hang out at the morgue until I figure something out
 
BRIAN
Tru…
 
 (She holds up a hand to silence him)
 
HARRISON
Whoa whoa wait let me guess, rewind day?
 
TRU
You could say that. Twice
 
HARRISON
Ooh. So what did I do?
 
TRU
Trashed my place, got busted breaking into Meredith’s apartment
 
HARRISON (voice-over)
Impressive
 
TRU
Just go to the morgue, okay?
 
HARRISON (voice-over)
Later
 
TRU (hanging up)
Hey, Brian
 
BRIAN
Hey, I’m writing this song, see if you can help me out okay? Check this out
(sings) I’m living out loud, I’m driving right through, will you meet me there…
 
TRU
(sings) Or are we through
 
BRIAN
You want me to rhyme “through” with “through”? That’s creative…
 
 (Tru walks away)
 
No, no, no…how about…
 
 (He looks up, Tru is gone)
 
13. INT. Morgue. DAY.
 
DAVIS
It rewound again?
 
TRU
Yes
 
DAVIS
Well, that’s unexpected
 
TRU
I mean, I thought I finally understood how this thing works. Someone asks for help, I save them, happily ever after. But this time…
 
DAVIS
Someone else died
 
TRU
Yeah. Because of me
 
DAVIS (reaching into fridge for his sandwiches)
Yeah, but because of you, someone lived
 
TRU
Yeah, a guy committing a felony. Explain to me how that’s fair. What, can anybody just ask for help now? Maybe there’s a homicidal maniac who’s in need of some assistance
 
DAVIS
Come on, Tru
 
TRU
Look, I’ve been through this twice, and each time, someone different died. Which one am I supposed to save now?
 
DAVIS
Both
 
 (Tru glances up at the clock. It reads 10:10am)
 
TRU
Great. Well I know where one of them is gonna be in eight minutes
 
 (She turns back; Davis is tucking into the sandwich)
 
Oh…about the sandwich…
 
14. EXT. ATM Machine. DAY.
 (Tru is standing by the machine, looking at her watch)
 
TRU
Right…about…now
 
 (Michael walks around the corner, into the alley. He walks up to the ATM and inserts his card)
 
TRU
Aren’t you…? Hey, I’m Lauren. I work at the Rose Food Market
 
MICHAEL
Sorry, no
 
TRU
Well, just in case you were planning on stopping by, you should know we’re closed for inventory today
 
 (Michael looks at the receipt, and hits the ATM)
 
TRU (cont’d)
Doors are locked. Registers are empty
 
MICHAEL
Listen lady, I don’t know you, I don’t know the Rose Food Market, and I don’t know why I care if you’re doing your inventory today
 
 (He puts the receipt into his jacket pocket and walks away. Tru waits for a second, then follows)
 
 (Tru sees the man coming who missed the trashcan on Day 1. She moves the trashcan a few inches into the street. She walks on, turns around to watch him. He throws his sweet paper and it lands in the trashcan)
 
15. INT. Morgue. DAY.
 (Davis is working on a body)
 
DAVIS
Muscle-tone appears slack. Large, fatty liver. Could be cirrhosis
 
HARRISON (off-screen)
Ooh woo! I thought I had it bad!
 
DAVIS
Harrison, what are you doing here?
 
HARRISON
Following orders. Tru told me to crash here
 
DAVIS
Crash?
 
HARRISON
Yeah. So where’s my room?
 
DAVIS
Room? We don’t…We don’t have rooms. We have drawers
 
HARRISON
Yeah, whatever
 
 (He puts his holdall on the ground)
 
I’m easy. You know, I haven’t seen you since my sister’s party. We never really got a chance to chat
 
DAVIS
About?
 
HARRISON
Hello? We’re the only two people who know what she can do. Hey. Any luck convincing her to play the ponies?
 
DAVIS
No. Because I believe her gift provides her with a higher calling
 
 (Harrison picks up a surgical tool from the plate)
 
Do you mind? These are sterile!
 
 (Harrison waves one around in front of him)
 
Well they were sterile
 
(Harrison drops it onto the plate and wipes his hands)
 
HARRISON
So, rewind day, huh?
 
DAVIS
Multiple rewind day
 
HARRISON (walking over towards the office)
Multiple. Oh, yeah yeah, she told me
 
 (Pause)
 
First
 
 (Davis looks annoyed. Harrison looks into the office)
 
Ooh
 
 (Shot of the shrimp sandwiches on the side. Harrison picks one up)
 
You gonna eat this?
 
DAVIS
No, it’s got…It’s all yours
 
HARRISON (tucking in)
Mm. Thanks, D!
 
16. INT. Health Center. DAY.
 (Michael enters)
 
MICHAEL (to the desk Front Desk Nurse)
Hey
 
 (The Front Desk Nurse buzzes the door and Michael goes through. Tru enters, looking sick)
 
FRONT DESK NURSE
Can I help you?
 
TRU
Yeah. I don’t feel too good
 
FRONT DESK NURSE
Oh, I’m sorry. Do you have a doctor case worker here?
 
TRU
No…
 
FRONT DESK NURSE (getting out a form)
Okay, let me just get you set up
 
TRU
Right now…I’m gonna be sick, ma’am, to my stomach
 
FRONT DESK NURSE
Oh…down the hall, to your right
 
 (She buzzes the door. Tru goes through. She walks through the appointments area, she can hear Michael)
 
MICHAEL (off-screen)
You should be able to, more than anybody else! Now you’re telling me you can’t help me?
 
PATRICIA
I just…
 
 (Tru can see Michael and a doctor in one of the appointment rooms, through the window. She watches)
 
MICHAEL
Can you get me the medicine?
 
PATRICIA
No
 
MICHAEL
Why not? You’re telling me you can’t help me? Will you get me the medicine?
 
PATRICIA
I can’t get you the medicine. I’m not authorized…
 
MICHAEL
That’s it?
 
 (He opens the door and walks away)
 
I don’t have any more time
 
PATRICIA
Mr Mancuso! Mr Mancuso, wait!
 
TRU (whispering to herself)
Mancuso
 
STEPHANIE
Hi, Patricia? Stephanie Brandis
 
PATRICIA
Oh, Stephanie. It’s nice to meet you. Finally we get another case worker around here
 
FRONT DESK NURSE (behind Tru)
If you’re finished in the bathroom, a doctor will see you now
 
TRU
You know what, I’m feeling much better
 
 (She hurries out of the door Michael just left from)
 
Cut to: Shot of Michael walking down the street
 
Cut to: Tru coming out of the Health Center, following him
 
 (Tru’s cellphone rings)
 
17. EXT. Street. DAY.
 
TRU (on cellphone)
Hey, a little busy right now
 
Cut to: DAVIS at the Morgue
You have got to get your brother out of here
 
 (Behind Davis, Harrison is looking in the drawers at the bodies, then closing them)
 
Ten minutes ago, I found him locked inside of the crypt!
 
Cut to: TRU
Look, it’s not a good time Davis
 
Cut to: DAVIS
And now he’s asking me how much a corpse goes for on the black market
 
Cut to: TRU
Just keep him occupied, I’ll be there as soon as I can
 
 (She hangs up)
 
Cut to: DAVIS (hanging up)
Not soon enough
 
 (He turns around; Harrison is leaning over another body)
 
HARRISON
Why don’t you ask me for help? Come on. Hook a brother up
 
 (His stomach rumbles audibly)
 
Hey dude. What the hell was in that sandwich, man?
 
18. EXT. Street. DAY.
 
TRU
Mr Mancuso!
 
 (He doesn’t hear her, he walks into the Food Market)
 
Mr Mancuso!
 
WOMAN
Wait! Wait, wait, I’m coming!...Thanks a lot!
 
TRU (to the cop)
Somebody’s robbing that store!
 
 (DISPATCH RADIO: We’ve got a robbery on the corner of Clark and Fourth. Nearest unit respond immediately.)
 
19. INT. Food Market. DAY.
 
MICHAEL
Then give me what you have. Now!
 
COP (pulling his gun)
Freeze. Put your hands in the air
 
MICHAEL (scared)
Oh dear God…
 
COP
Drop your weapon on the floor
 
MICHAEL
I don’t…I don’t have any
 
TRU
It’s in his left pocket
 
COP
Empty it
 
MICHAEL
This is all a big mistake
 
 (He reaches into his pocket and pulls out the hairbrush. Tru looks shocked)
 
 (The skateboarding kid makes a run for it, knocking over the cola display)
 
 (Tru watches out of the shop window, a horn honks as the kid tries to run across the road. A cab screeches its brakes, but it hits the boy. The boy flies onto the windshield, bounces off the bonnet and lands on the road in front of the cab)
 
CAB DRIVER
Oh my God! I didn’t see him!
 
 (A crowd starts to gather)
 
He came out of nowhere! I swear…
 
 (Tru pushes her way through the crowd, to get to the boy)
 
TRU
Somebody call an ambulance!
 
COP
1180, Orange and First. I need an EMS team immediately
 
(DISPATCH RADIOCopy that, they’re on their way”)
 
 (Michael pushes through to crouch next to Tru)
 
TRU
Forget the ambulance
 
MICHAEL
Is he…?
 
TRU
Why didn’t you listen to me? I told you not to go in there!
 
BOY
Please…
 
 (Tru looks around for the voice, then down at the boy)
 
BOY
Help me
 
 [Flashes of the days images as it rewinds for a third time]
 
20. INT. Tru’s apartment. DAY.
 (Tru sits up on the couch, panting)
 
TRU
You’ve gotta be kidding me!
 
LUC
What? You’ve been trying to get me to fix this sink for weeks
 
TRU (scrambling up, putting her shoes on)
Something tells me it wants to stay broken
 
LUC
Whoa…that’s the fastest I’ve ever seen you get ready. That’s the fastest I’ve seen anybody get ready
 
TRU (grabbing her jacket)
Sorry. I’ve really gotta run
 
LUC
Where?
 
TRU (grabbing her bag)
Visiting Meredith
 
LUC
Thought she wasn’t allowed to have visitors?
 
TRU
Only immediate family
 
LUC
If it was something else, you’d tell me, right?
 
TRU
Of course
 
21. EXT. Harrison’s apartment. DAY.
 (He sits on a chair, eating cereal, in his dressing gown, on the cellphone)
 
TRU (voice-over)
Go crash at Lindsay’s!
 
HARRISON
Telling your girlfriend you’ve just been evicted isn’t very effective…
 
Cut to: TRU walking down the corridor
Pillow talk, my ass!
 
Cut to: HARRISON
Ooh, nice language! You having one of those days?
 
Cut to: TRU
No, more like three of them, so just be a polite guest, she’ll understand
 
BRIAN
Tru!
 
HARRISON
Three… (He lets the phone fall from his ear as he drinks the milk from his bowl) Sweet
 
TRU (hanging up)
Writing a song?
 
BRIAN
Yeah, how’d you know?
 
TRU
Because you’re holding a guitar. I’m sort of in a hurry
 
BRIAN
Right, okay. Check this out
(sings) I’m living out loud, I’m driving right through, will you meet me there…?
 
TRU
(sings) Because I’m stuck in traffic…
 
 (She hurries down the corridor)
 
BRIAN (calling after her)
That doesn’t rhyme!
 
Cut to: Shot of the Morgue building, and front door
 
22. INT. Morgue. DAY.
 
DAVIS
Three times?
 
TRU
And each day, because of me, someone different dies
 
DAVIS
Well, it’s not your fault, Tru. Besides, look on the bright side
 
TRU
And what’s that?
 
DAVIS
Well it sounds like each day you’re getting a little bit more information, another clue. So now you know the guy in the store really didn’t have a gun
 
TRU
So he’s desperate. I get it. But so am I. I mean, what if this day never stops repeating? If every day I wake up and make the same lame excuse to Luc, and then call my brother in some lame attempt to keep him out of trouble, and then my neighbour with his lousy song? I can’t keep doing this!
 
DAVIS
Well maybe your job isn’t as obvious as we thought
 
TRU
What do you mean?
 
DAVIS
Perhaps someone is supposed to die today. And stay that way
 
 [Fade to Black]
 [Flashes of the days images as it rewinds]
 
23. INT. Morgue. DAY.
 
TRU
I can’t deal with this. I am not in the business of deciding who is or isn’t supposed to die
 
DAVIS
How do you know?
 
TRU
Don’t say that. You know what everyone else my age is deciding right now? “Grad school or get a job?”, “Order in or go out?”, and “Do I really need a phone that takes little pictures?”
 
DAVIS
People always say things happen for a reason. Well that reason is fate. And fate by definition is immutable. Maybe you’re here just to make sure that…
 
TRU
Fate gets its way? How do I know what it wants?
 
DAVIS
It’ll tell you. Eventually
 
TRU
And until then?
 
DAVIS
You gotta trust your instincts
 
 (Tru walks out of the office, picking up a white lab coat on the way)
 
DAVIS
Back to the ATM?
 
TRU
No. Something went down at the clinic, and whatever it was, that’s what made him desperate enough to hold up the store
 
24. EXT. ATM Machine. DAY.
 (Michael inserts his card and presses the pin code in. The machine beeps, releases the receipt. Michael looks at it, then hits the ATM. He walks out of the alley and round the corner, down the street. He passes the man who throws his sweet wrapper towards the trashcan, he misses and it falls onto the sidewalk)
 
25. INT. Health Center. DAY.
 (Tru enters, wearing the white lab coat she took from the Morgue)
 
TRU
Hi. I’m Stephanie Brandis, one of your new case workers
 
 [Flashback: STEPHANIE: “Hi, Patricia? Stephanie Brandis”, PATRICIA: “Oh, Stephanie”]
 
FRONT DESK NURSE
Of course. Through the door and to the left. Patricia Norris is expecting you
 
 (She hands her a file)
 
TRU
I thought she might be. Thanks
 
 (The Front Desk Nurse buzzes the door and Tru goes through)
 
26. INT. Patricia’s Office. DAY.
 
PATRICIA (shaking Tru’s hand)
Thank God. I’ve been asking for a new case worker round here for months. Come on in
 
TRU
Actually, I already started flipping through some of the files. I’m halfway through the Mancuso case
 
 (They sit down)
 
PATRICIA
Awful, isn’t it? And she is the sweetest child you will ever meet
 
TRU
She?
 
PATRICIA
Elizabeth. Her parents have tried everything, but with a case like this… (She shakes her head)
 
TRU
I haven’t had a chance to finish reading the file
 
PATRICA
Elizabeth has acute viral cardiomyopathy. She had an echovirus that came out of the blue last year
 
TRU
What’s the course of treatment?
 
PATRICIA
The doctor has her on a daily antiarrhythmic but the medicine’s just a band aid. Ultimately, she’ll need a heart transplant
 
TRU
And is she on the list?
 
PATRICIA
Yeah, pretty far down. And with O-neg patients like Elizabeth, the chances of a suitable heart becoming available are…
 
TRU
Slim to none
 
PATRICIA
Exactly. Mr Mancuso lost his job six months ago; his insurance is on its last leg so…
 
 (Michael walks up the office and enters)
 
MICHAEL
I need to talk to you
 
PATRICIA
Michael, we were just discussing your daughter’s case. The is Stephanie Brandis, a new case worker
 
TRU
Nice to meet you
 
MICHAEL
Look, I need more Amiodarone. We ran out and Elizabeth’s breathing is very heavy today. I went to the pharmacy, but the insurance denied me. You know they were gonna charge me $500 for two pills? (He laughs incredulously) I don’t have $500!
 
PATRICIA (standing up)
I’m aware…
 
MICHAEL
Look I need you to get me that medicine! I promise I’ll pay you back
 
 (Patricia closes the door to the office)
 
PATRICIA
Mr Mancuso, calm down…
 
MICHAEL
She’s in pain!
 
PATRICIA (gently)
I’m not a pharmacist; I’m certainly not authorized to give away medicine
 
MICHAEL
I thought you were supposed to help me
 
TRU
Just give us some time; we’ll see what we can do
 
MICHAEL
I don’t have any!
 
PATRICIA
Mr Mancuso…
 
MICHAEL
No
 
 (He walks out)
 
PATRICIA
Mr Mancuso, wait!
 
MICHAEL
Don’t have any more time
 
PATRICIA (at the door)
Mr Mancuso… (She sighs) I can’t imagine it getting worse for him
 
TRU
I can
 
 (She hurries off after him)
 
27. INT. Health center. DAY.
 (The real Stephanie Brandis stands at Reception)
 
STEPHANIE
Look, I swear to you I’m Stephanie Brandis and I have a meeting
 
FRONT DESK NURSE
Don’t make me call security
 
28. EXT. Street. DAY
 
TRU
Michael… (She runs to catch up with him) Look, Mr Mancuso, I understand your daughter’s in trouble, but Patricia can help you, why don’t you wait for her call?
 
MICHAEL
My daughter needs her medicine now
 
TRU
Well she’s not gonna get it if you do something stupid
 
MICHAEL
What the hell are you talking about?
 
TRU
Look, please don’t tell me you’re looking for some quick way to get cash which might even include holding up the nearest store you can find
 
MICHAEL
Leave me alone
 
TRU
Michael, don’t do this!
 
MICHAEL
You got any other options?! She’s 11 years old. The one thing my daughter needs is the thing I can’t give her. My God, I look at her friends, and I wonder why their hearts work and hers doesn’t. Why she got sick, and they didn’t. I can’t fix her, but I can make her feel better. She needs her medicine. She needs it now
 
 (He turns to go)
 
TRU
I’ll get it for you! Just…Look, give me an hour. And no charges, but promise me, you won’t go into that store
 
MICHAEL
An hour?
 
TRU
And your address
 
MICHAEL
820 South Normandy, apartment two
 
TRU
Amiodarone, right?
 
MICHAEL
Yeah, 50 milligrams
 
TRU
Got it. Now go sit with your daughter, I’ll be right there
 
MICHAEL
Thank you
 
 (He walks away. Behind Tru, the cop is writing out a parking ticket)
 
WOMAN
Wait! Wait, wait, I’m coming!
 
 (Tru reaches into her pocket for some money, and slips it into the parking metre, turning the dial)
 
WOMAN
Thank you. Thank you so much
 
 (DISPATCH RADIO: “We’ve got a robbery at the corner of Clark and Fourth, nearest unit respond immediately)
 
 (The cop rushes off. Tru turns to look into the window of the Food Market. The clerk is standing doing his cross word. The skateboarding boy exits the store, walking off down the street)
 
29. INT. Morgue. DAY.
 (Davis is writing a prescription)
 
DAVIS
Go to the pharmacy on the corner and ask for Timothy. If she’s having shortness of breath, this should do the trick. But with acute cardiomyopathy she’ll eventually…
 
TRU
I know, need a transplant
 
 (Davis signs the prescription)
 
But you’re sure he’s just gonna give me $500 worth of medication?
 
DAVIS
He owes me. I set up his grandma with a really nice coffin last month
 
TRU
You know, it looks like you were wrong, Davis. No one had to die today, not one person
 
DAVIS
Well I’m glad I was mistaken
 
 (Tru goes to leave, her cellphone rings)
 
TRU (on cellphone)
What’s up, Harry?
 
Cut to: HARRISON at Lindsay’s apartment
Well, I took your advice and went to Lindsay’s
 
TRU (voice-over)
Uh-huh
 
Cut to: TRU walking through the Morgue
 
HARRISON (voice-over)
And yeah, you said to be a polite house guest
 
TRU
Uh-huh
 
HARRISON (voice-over)
Well, I tried
 
Cut to: HARRISON (smoke filling the air behind him)
I thought I’d be nice and cook a little something-something for dinner and uh, yeah…
 
 (Camera pans out to reveal a smoking frying pan on the cooker)
 
I might have started a small fire
 
Cut to: TRU
And you’re calling me why?
 
Cut to: HARRISON
On the off chance the day boomerangs again, I need you to say two simple words: Take out
 
Cut to: TRU
Good luck, Harry
 
 (She hangs up. Davis comes out of the crypt)
 
Davis, you okay?
 
DAVIS (holding his belly)
Kind of not, no. Word of advice, stay away from that…
 
TRU
Shrimp sandwich! Yeah, my bad. I forgot to warn you, I’ve been kind busy. Sorry!
 
DAVIS
It’s okay. Priorities. Go
 
 (The lift dings. Tru walks into it, watching Davis running down the corridor in the opposite direction)
 
Cut to: Tru walking down the street
 
Cut to: Tru walking up to apartment two. She knocks on the door. No one answers, so she enters
 
30. INT. Mancuso apartment. DAY
 
TRU
Michael?
 
 (she wanders further in)
 
Michael? I have the medicine
 
 (she shakes the pill bottle)
 
Michael?
 
 (She dashes through the corridor, into Elizabeth’s bedroom, worried now. Elizabeth is lying in bed, her parents sitting by her)
 
Is she…?
 
 (They are both crying)
 
MICHAEL
She’s gone
 
TRU
I should have been here sooner…
 
MICHAEL
The medicine wouldn’t have saved her life
 
LINDA
Thank you for trying
 
TRU
I’m so, so sorry
 
LINDA
There’s a…there’s a plan for everyone
 
 (Tru walks slowly closer to Elizabeth. Linda dissolves into tears)
 
MICHAEL (softly)
Come here…
 
 (He moves her away from the bed, embracing her)
 
She…she’s in a better place
 
 (Tru walks closer to Elizabeth, looking at her, wondering if she will ask for help)
 
We did everything we could. You know we did everything…
 
 (Tru turns around to leave)
 
ELIZABETH
Please…
 
 (Tru turns around. Elizabeth’s head moves to look at her)
 
ELIZABETH
Help me
 
 [Flashes of the days images as it rewinds for a fourth time]
 
31. INT. Tru’s apartment. DAY.
 (Tru sits up, panting, on the couch)
 
LUC
Bad dream?
 
TRU
I wish
 
 [Fade to Black]
 [Flashes of the days images as they rewind]
 
32. INT. Tru’s apartment. DAY
 
TRU
You don’t need to bother fixing that. Trust me
 
LUC
Are you okay?
 
TRU
No
 
 (She grabs her jacket and puts it on)
 
LUC
Can I help?
 
TRU
No
 
LUC
And she’s off. Just out of curiosity, where are you rushing off to?
 
TRU
Luc, I could make up some excuse you’d see right through because you know me. And I love that. But for us to work, you need to know everything, and for that to happen, you just need to wait a little bit longer
 
LUC
Well obviously we have a lot to talk about, Tru. But I can see that you’re stressed about something, so let me help with that
 
TRU
You know, you’re right, maybe you could help me with something. Harrison’s been having a really bad couple of days, and he might come by here, would you mind just trying to keep him out of trouble?
 
LUC
Okay
 
TRU
Thank you! (she kisses him) I’ll talk to you tonight (she dashes out)
 
LUC (to himself)
Yeah. We’ll see
 
33. INT. Corridor. DAY.
 (Tru rushes down the corridor, but not fast enough. Brian comes out his apartment)
 
BRIAN
Tru!
 
TRU (turning round)
(sings) I’m living out loud, I’m driving right through, will you meet me there, so we can start anew
 
BRIAN (impressed)
Whoa! Tru! That’s my song! I think we’re on the same kinda wavelength or something here…
 
 (Tru dashes away)
 
You wanna start a band?
 
34. INT. Morgue. DAY.
 
DAVIS
You must be getting so sick of explaining this to me
 
TRU
It’s like each time the day repeats, it gets worse. You should’ve seen this family
 
DAVIS
Okay let me get this straight. Again. You saved the father
 
TRU
Yeah. So he could watch his daughter die. How is that okay?
 
DAVIS
Yeah but Tru, without you, they both would’ve…
 
TRU
I know, but I’m still stuck in the same day, what am I doing wrong?
 
DAVIS
Well maybe you’re doing everything exactly right
 
TRU
Davis, you can theorize all you want
 
DAVIS
All I’m saying is maybe everything was meant to lead you directly to this little girl
 
TRU
So, what, I’m supposed to somehow keep Michael away from the store, and get his daughter the help she needs?
 
DAVIS
And don’t forget, the help that he thinks she needs is useless. The medicine isn’t gonna save her life
 
TRU
I have to get her to the hospital
 
 (She grabs her jacket and bag and goes to leave, then turns back)
 
Oh, and Davis, the sandwich in the fridge, hand it over
 
DAVIS
What?
 
TRU
Now!
 
 (Davis grabs it, throws it to Tru. She catches it and runs off)
 
DAVIS (to himself)
Well, what am I supposed to eat?
 
35. EXT. ATM Machine. DAY.
 (Tru walks around into the alley. Michael is pressing buttons on the ATM machine.)
 
TRU
Michael
 
MICHAEL
Who are you?
 
TRU
You don’t know me, and I don’t have time to explain, but I’m here to help your daughter. She has to get to a hospital. Now
 
MICHAEL
She’s gonna be fine
 
TRU
No she’s not. Elizabeth’s in trouble, believe me
 
MICHAEL
How do you know her name?
 
TRU
The same way I know you’re about to find out that your balance is negative $432 and eighteen cents
 
 (Michael takes the receipt from the machine and looks at it. Camera shot to show it does say -$432.18)
 
MICHAEL
I don’t understand
 
TRU
Now you’re planning on going to the clinic to beg for free medicine for Elizabeth, but let me save you some time. Patricia Norris, your case worker, is gonna be sympathetic, but she’s not authorized to give you the meds
 
MICHAEL
What are you talking about?
 
 (He walks past her)
 
TRU
Amiodarone isn’t going to save her life, Michael
 
 (Michael stops)
 
Her heart is gonna fail today
 
 (He turns to look at her)
 
Is there anything you wouldn’t do for your daughter?
 
MICHAEL
I’d die for her
 
 (Tru reaches into her bag for the cellphone and holds it out to him)
 
TRU
Call your wife and tell her to get Elizabeth to the hospital
 
 (he looks at the phone)
 
Here!
 
 (Michael sighs, takes the phone and dials)
 
MICHAEL
Honey, it’s me. It she…? No, no, look the medicine is not gonna help her. Take her to the hospital. Yeah, I’ll meet you there
 
 (He hands the phone back to Tru)
 
Thank you. Whoever you are
 
 (He turns to walk out of the alley. The man who dropped the sweet wrapper on the street the previous three days is in front of him, he grabs Michael round the neck, holding a knife to his throat)
 
MAN
I want all of your money right now!
 
TRU
Whoa, whoa, whoa!
 
MICHAEL
Come on, I don’t have a thing!
 
 [Flashback: DISPATCH: “We’ve got a robbery on the corner of Clark and Fourth, nearest unit respond immediately”]
 
 [Flashback: Tru looking at the street sign: 342 North Clark Street]
 
MAN
Come on!
 
TRU
Please, no, he doesn’t have anything!
 
MAN
Shut up!
 
MICHAEL
Please…
 
TRU
Here, take my necklace, its worth a lot, just please, don’t hurt him
 
 (The man looks at the necklace Tru is taking off)
 
Please, take this
 
MAN
All right…
 
 (He shoves Michael against the wall, still holding the knife out)
 
All right, take it off, come on!
 
 (Tru struggles with it)
 
Come on! Come on!
 
TRU
I’m trying!
 
MAN
Take it off, come on
 
 (Michael punches him, knocking him to the ground)
 
TRU
No
 
 (The man picks himself up, shoves Michael backwards and stabs him with the knife, in the stomach)
 
TRU
No!
 
 (He stabs him again, Michael yells in pain)
 
MAN
Come on, move it, the necklace, let’s go!
 
 (Tru hands over the necklace and the man runs off)
 
TRU (kneeling by Michael)
Its okay…hey, it’s okay…
 
 (she dials 911)
 
OPERATOR
911, what’s your emergency?
 
36. INT. E.R. DAY.
 (Michael is being wheeled in quickly on a trolley)
 
DOCTOR 1
Multiple stab wounds, looks like he’s bleeding out
 
DOCTOR 2
We need another line. Get a 14-gauge in his right antecube and set up a rapid infuser. Send a type and cross-match to the blood bank now. On three…one, two, three
 
 (Several doctors lift him from the trolley to a bed in the E.R. Michael grunts in pain)
 
DOCTOR 1
Who the hell are you?
 
TRU
City Morgue
 
MICHAEL
Where’s my daughter?
 
 (A Machine across the room beeps)
 
DOCTOR 2
Damn it. She’s in V-fib
 
MICHAEL
Elizabeth…Elizabeth!
 
 (The doctor working on Elizabeth puts a mask over her face)
 
DOCTOR 2
Get the paddles
 
MICHAEL
No…
 
DOCTOR 2
Everybody clear
 
MICHAEL
Elizabeth…
 
 (The paddles charge. The doctor shocks Elizabeth)
 
DOCTOR 2
Still no pulse. Start the compressions
 
MICHAEL
Please, no…
 
 (A nurse starts the compressions on Elizabeth)
 
MICHAEL
Oh, no, God, no…
 
DOCTOR 1
Please try and calm down, sir
 
DOCTOR 3
Three entry wounds in the right upper quadrant. Set up for a DPL
 
NURSE
Yes, doctor
 
DOCTOR 1
Frank, blood in the peritoneum. Where the hell is the trauma surgeon?
 
 [Flashback: MICHAEL in the alley “I’d die for her”]
 
 (Tru looks over at Elizabeth. The nurse and doctor are still working on her)
 
MICHAEL
I’m not gonna make it…please, make sure she’s okay, she’s safe
 
DOCTOR 3
Pressure’s still dropping
 
DOCTOR 2
Clear
 
DOCTOR 3
Push more ringers as fast as you can
 
DOCTOR 1
What he needs is blood, where is the O-neg I ordered?
 
NURSE
It’s on its way
 
DOCTOR 1
Scalpel
 
 [Flashback: Patricia Norris: “And with O-neg patients like Elizabeth, the chances of a heart coming available are… TRU: “Slim to none”]
 
NURSE
Scalpel
 
DOCTOR 1
What a mess
 
 [Flashback: Tru in the Morgue with Michael’s body before the day rewound: he had a bullet wound to the heart]
 
TRU
His heart was destroyed. But not today. I didn’t need to save him, I needed to save his heart. For her
 
 (she leans over Michael)
 
Your daughter’s gonna live….a long, and healthy life
 
DOCTOR 1
Come on, come on, push through. Come on!
 
 (Michael’s machine begins flatlining)
 
DOCTOR 1
Damn it. Damn it. (he looks up a the monitor) Time of death, 12:32 pm
 
TRU
His daughter needs his heart
 
 (She points to Elizabeth. Doctor 1 looks over to Doctor 2)
 
DOCTOR 2
Notify the transplant team. And get Paediatric Cardiology
 
 (The doctors working on the patients fade gradually into a shot of Tru’s apartment block – NIGHT)
 
37. INT. Tru’s apartment. NIGHT.
 (Tru enters her apartment. It’s dark. She switches on the light. She walks over to the kitchen. On the tap is a post-it note, it reads: “All fixed! Luc”. She smiles, and flicks the switch to test the garbage disposal. It works fine. Tru empties Davis’s shrimp sandwiches into it and flicks the switch. The sink makes a horrible grinding sound. Tru tries to switch it off quickly. Tru sighs)
 
HARRISON
I hope you didn’t just break that. Because Luc spent like, two hours trying to fix it
 
TRU
Yeah, I know
 
HARRISON
Hey, you okay?
 
TRU
This has been the longest day of my life
 
HARRISON
I know the feeling. If it makes you feel any better, I got evicted today
 
TRU
Really?
 
HARRISON
But your boy Luc really saved my ass
 
TRU
He kept your buddies from trashing my place?
 
HARRISON
Oh, yeah, that. And he joined the poker game, and then he…well, let’s just say that I have enough money for last month’s rent
 
 (Tru rolls her eyes)
 
HARRISON (cont’d)
Oh, and next month’s too. Hoo-hoo! But, you should get some rest. (he kisses her cheek) I’m out. I’ll talk to you tomorrow
 
TRU
Yeah. I really hope so
 
 (Harrison turns in the doorway, looking questioningly at her. Tru waves. Harrison shrugs and disappears)
 
 (Soft music plays throughout)
 
Cut to: Tru sitting up in bed, the next morning, she smiles to herself
 
38. INT. Morgue. DAY.
 
TRU
Hey
 
DAVIS
Hi
 
TRU
So you were right. Someone was supposed to die
 
DAVIS
Well, he just had to die differently, so someone else could live
 
TRU
I should’ve been able to save them both
 
DAVIS
You can change events, but you can’t change fate, Tru
 
TRU
I can do things that probably no one else can. Sometimes even that doesn’t feel like enough
 
DAVIS
Sometimes it isn’t
 
 [Fade to Black]

Sonmi451 (23:14)

Moi j'adore, c'est le chaud que j'aime pas. lol

CastleBeck (23:14)

Sonmi : Ce n'est pas que tu n'as pas le temps, car si tu en avais réellement envie, tu trouverais de le temps

Sonmi451 (23:15)

On a pas le temps, on a un temps et c'est ce temps là qu'on a toujours mais on n'en connait pas sa durée et tout le problème est là.

CastleBeck (23:15)

Non, c'est oki aujourd'hui, mais j'aime ni le froid ni le chaud...

stanary (23:15)

Ah je comprends pas comment vous faîtes pour aimer le mauvais temps .

Sonmi451 (23:15)

Mais bien sur, j'ai toujours mon temps. ^^

Titepau04 (23:15)

Tu n'aimes pas le froid??? C'est dommage ça!!!

CastleBeck (23:16)

Un temps, le temps... Tout est question de déterminant tout ça

CastleBeck (23:17)

Le froid,c 'est pas du mauvais temps... Il peut faire froid et soleil...
Moi, j'aime le printemps et l'automne, j'aime pas l'hiver et tout ce qui s'y rapporte (sauf le hockey)!

stanary (23:17)

Non je déteste ça . Sonmi ton avant dernier message n'a aucun sens

Sonmi451 (23:19)

ha non c'est pas pareil le temps personne ne le tiens, c'est quelque chose qui nous fil entre les doigts mais on a tous un temps donné.

Sonmi451 (23:20)

Ca ne veut pas rien dire, c'est de la philo Star' nuance. ^^

CastleBeck (23:20)

Tout à fait d'accord. Il faut s'accorder un temps pour faire ce qu'on veut, comme danser sur la table de ton salon

Sonmi451 (23:21)

J'ai jamais dit que j'avais envie de danser sur la table. lol

CastleBeck (23:21)

Je sais!

Sonmi451 (23:21)

j'ai dit que le jour où on m'entend dire que je m'ennuie, j'irais danser sur la table ^^

Sonmi451 (23:21)

mais heureusement que je prends du temps pour moi hein ^^

stanary (23:22)

Et tu m'enverras la vidéo d'ailleurs ^^

CastleBeck (23:22)

Mais, tu vois, ici, il y a des gens qui prennent les conversations en plein milieu et qu'ils interprètent à leur façon!

CastleBeck (23:22)

(qui)

Sonmi451 (23:24)

Haaa ça je sais! lol

CastleBeck (23:25)

Sur ce, moi, il parait que je dois retourner travailler (et pelleter), alors je vous souhaite une excellente fin de soirée et une bonne nuit
