High Crimes Script - Dialogue Transcript

Voila! Finally, the High Crimes script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the movie starring Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman.  This script is a transcript that was painstakingly transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of High Crimes. I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in there and I'll be eternally tweaking it, so if you have any corrections, feel free to drop me a line. You won't hurt my feelings. Honest.

Swing on back to Drew's Script-O-Rama afterwards for more free movie scripts!

El Salvador back in      .

In a little town called

I remember the rebel group
threw a bomb into the cafe.

The press had a field day.

Everybody went nuts.

So they call up my unit,

to locate the rebel leader who
is responsible.

He is a terrorist by the name
dinelo Chicon.

And your orders came from?

RCO, Bill Marks. Anyway?

What? Sorry?

Brigadier General Marks?

Special representative to the
joint congressional committee on

military appropriation,
Bill Marks?

He was colonel Bill Mark back

Under his orders, we were sent
to a little village called

Las Calinas.

The village has just a few

dinelo Chicon is suppose to be
hiding out there.

It was suppose to be routine.

Somebody lost it.

I hear gun fire.

By the time I get to there,
  people are slaughtered.

And god damn.

They were all women, men, kids,

and I lost it.

I jumped the guy who did it..

And the next thing I know, I'm
looking at first degree,   specs.

Who did it?


Jimmy Hernandez.

He ordered me to keep my mouth

He said he was teaching them a
lesson and Mark will back him up

I told them to go to hell.

Major Hernandez?
Marks's top aide?


He introduced himself to me
yesterday in the waiting area.


Claire, I want you to listen to

I want you to stay away from

He is extremely dangerous,
do you understand?

General Marks, he is like the
most decorated most powerful?

And you're saying you were
framed by General Marks and his

special assistant.

That is our defense?


Claire, sit down for a minute.

I don't want the firm's name to
be connected to this.

Nobody knows Ron Chatman is
Tom Kubik.

Alex, my husband is innocent.

I'm not considering any other

I'm even less interested than
you are in seeing his name

associated with a mass murder.

I just want you to understand.

All the possible unforeseen

I'll make it really easy for you.

If the firm's name got dragged
into this, you don't have to

fire me. I'll resign.

Hei, Josh, remember that thing
from the twenty?

Thank you.

Claire can I do anything?

Yeah, I need a lawyer.

Somebody from the marine corps.

Somebody who beat them before
and hungry to beat them again.

Where will you be?

because you are one.

I followed the Norris case.

Rumour has it that you are a
very good attorney.

Formerly of the Jag Corps.

And in that former life you

superior's wife,

Military justice is different.

Wake up. Smell the napalm.

they slapped hand cuffs on me.

That's because every time you

Because he is about ready to

Have you file any motion?

I'll duly dismiss all charges
due to insufficient evidence.

Motion denied.

You haven't even read the

No doubt, neither has Farrell.

The whole military judicial
system is based on denial.

Can we fight the system?


We play by the rule.

do not fight the system.

You fight the system,
you loose.

Isn't that right, Embry?

Say yes sir.

Yes, sir.

don't be a sap, Embry.

Nobody in uniform can think for

This is a pre-trial hearing.
The goal is to listen,

and not to reveal anything.

do we have anything to reveal,
Mrs. Kubik?



Than that ought to work.

Which one is the prosecutor?

We call them trial council.

Mrs. Kubik, I'm Major Waldron.

How do you do?

Hi, Luther.

Nice to see you.

Sergeant Chatman, you've seen
the charges against you,

how do you plea?

Before that, can you dismiss
all my client charges?

Motion denied.

Since you are unfamiliar with
system of our court.

We don't have clients here.

Sergeant Ron Chatman have been
accused, and I'm still waiting

for the plea.

I plea not guilty.

Not guilty.

Thank you, your honour.

Prosecutor request short

There's no way we can prepare

So it begins.

See you soon.

He is suppose to be the best.

What the hell was that?

I said you should follow the

I'm the wild card.

You could have got us thrown
out from the case.

That's too early..

If they think we're gonna go
public, it might give us an idea

how scare they are.

What do you think, Embry?

I think why me, why I was
assigned to this case.

  guys in Tom's unit and all of
them said he did it.

But only two of these
eyewitnesses are on their list.

What happened to the other


All of them?

dead how?

Two were killed in combat.

One was murdered,
and the other two accidents.


I know a couple of P.I.s, ex-Green Berets.

Not very ethical, but maybe
they can give us the unofficial

version of their death.

That's charming.

I think maybe Hernandez acting

General Marks was in this.

In other words,
you don't believe it.

That is not my point.

do you believe Tom or not?

Easy, he is just expressing his

Isn't there something you
should be doing some where else?

Not really.

Can I get you another coffee?

No, madam, I'm good.

I have to agree with Embry.

Guy like Marks smells, looks,
tastes creditable.

Put him on the stands, he'll
just give Hernandez credibility.

Right, that's what I'm saying.

Well, the young man has an
original thought.

You know what?

-Is that my phone?

-Go to hell.

Another one.

Yes I'll hold for Major

Hello, Major.

We'll be there.

I can't believe it.

They want a deal.

I love being a wild card.

There's a lot of interest

And Major Hernandez and

So, no deal.

Can you believe I ask my

You don't believe me do you?

Of course I believe you.

I want to do it for us.

Hey, Ron.

Or Tommy, or whatever it is?

What are you doing here?

You ought to plea this out.

Major, no!


Hold on!

You passed.

Of course I passed.

It absolutely secured.

Absolutely secured?

What do you mean?

What do you think I mean?

And Lieutenant Colonel?

Were there any eyewitnesses to
this massacre?


We have   eyewitnesses'

All saying Ron is the shooter.

Thank you.

Nothing further, your honour.

You were and still are special
agent in charge of this

criminal investigation?

That's correct.

So, when you said the
investigation were not flawed,

you basically were giving
yourself a big thumb up.

I am just expressing my

So help you God, no doubt.

Is it possible that this
witnesses were coached before

you got your hands on them?

I guess it is possible.
But unlikely.

And are you aware that   of the
witnesses were subsequently

killed in combat?

Yes, I'm aware of that.

And another   relatively young
men have die as well?


That was Lieutenant Alan,
hit and run.

Sergeant Spencer,
accidental drowning.

And the other the unfortunate
mountain climbing fall.

That sounds right.
-does it?

That is interesting.

I just made up those causes of

I mean there were no
accidental drowning,

no mountain climbing fall.

I do have the details about
these tragic deaths.

Including a fatal home invasion
robbery. Look at them.

I'm a little fuzzy on the

I wasn't in charge in those

No further question.

My investigation was strictly..
-No further question.

-Claire, it's Charlie.

You know the witness in Tom's
unit that was murdered?

Yeah, home invasion robbery.

He was killed right in front of
his wife.

And she accused that the
military had involved.

Will she talk to us?

The problem is, she disappear
right after that.

Is this a bad time?

I was thinking we could go over
to Hernandez's cross.

I was just taking a break.

Going over Hernandez's stuff

Please don't be mad.

It wasn't him, it was all me.

This doesn't affect anything,

My work 'm totally up for it.

Yes. We were just going over
his briefs.

You never can take anything
seriously, can you?

Nothing! Ever!
-Oh, yeah. That's right.

You got to be a lawyer,
I got to bang one, right?

We are closed.


We are closed.

Excuse me, can you tell me how
to get to Strick street?

Sure,   blocks down.

Thank you.

Want some cheese?

Yeah. I can make an omelette.

I'll make one.

You want Cheddar, American,

Cheddar is good.

Like special operation

I teach people how to create a
new persona.

That way when they lie,
they're not really lying.

Why are you telling me this?

I don't know.

But my guess is you do.

Who are you, who send you?

I was asked to convey this
message to you.

Good night Mrs. Kubik.

Get out of here.

Is it true?


That you get that kind of

To beat the box.

What are you talking about?

The polygraf , Tom.

But I didn't beat the box.

Why didn't you tell me you

It doesn't occurred to me.

That's not part of who I am

That's it, isn't it?

How do I know who you are?

You the only one who knows who
I am.

I don't care anymore.

I did it.

I shot them all.

I just don't believe it.
I refused.

The truth is less fun than the

I won't be there for Hernandez.

I got word Troy Abbott got his

I gotta go track him down.

I was kinda sick.

Chatman taunted the victim.

He tossed his gun around like
a cowboy.

Kind of showing off.

And then he executed them.

Please continue.

I ran to the south end of the
village but it was too late.

They were all dead.

And Chatman was still shooting.

  members of the unit assisted
me and we got him down.

You said Chatman did some sick

Yet, you allow him to proceed
without any supervision?

I didn't realize he take it
that far.

Had Chatman been cited for this
kind of behaviour before?


Isn't he the most experience
and reliable in the unit?

Before you answer that,
a quote from a report you filed.

defense's exhibit A.

Chatman was a good marine.

Courage, honest.

I thought so.

The kind of marine that will
not go along with a cover up.


For you who actually committed
the killing.

Jury members you are instructed
to disregard that accusation.

How was it possible that   men
spread all over a village would

We all got to the barn at the
same time.

How convenience.

doesn't it make more sense that
some of them are order to lie?

They were not ordered to lie.

How did you know?

I would know if something like
that happened to my men.

And if something like that
happened to them, you would tell us?

Of course,
I wouldn't lie about it.

You were train to lie about
your clandestine operation.

As I understand it,
you were trained to be the polygraf.

I only use it when interrogated
by the enemy.

That's good to know.

The tape is excluded.

What's next?

Your honour!

So self-righteous.

There's no way we can proof

I don't understand.

I don't play those games.


General Marks.

No press please.

I'm not from the press,
how do you do?


Kubik, Claire Kubik.

I'm representing my husband.

Mrs. Kubik, good day.

General Marks.

You gave Hernandez an order.
-I have nothing to say to you.

He knew detachment    will come
under attack.

You're a dignify man sir.
And the cover up.

I dare you.

Your man Hernandez overreacted
and a open fire.

Young lady you are way out your

how out of the line I am.

If you want to talk to Delailah

There is a man who is stranger
to me who said to me last week,

that all lawyers are a waste
of oxygen.

I greatly feel that justice will

not be served.

And I would like to challenge

what happened to come forward.

She is continuing insisting
that her husband is innocent.

As an attorney and wife, she is

The whole firm saw you at the

Hello Alex,
I have been expecting you.


I'll send in my resignation

Get in.


Wait, okay, wait.

Where are we going?

I want to know the truth.

I want to know what happened
at Las Calinas.

You don't care about the truth.

All you care about,
is saving your husband.

Get out.

You want to know about
Las Calinas?

Women like you?

beautiful, young?

And the old people? begging for their lives.

Jesus Christ.

It was    years ago.

They all looked the same in
green uniforms?

don't be foolish.

I just want to show you a

The blood is still fresh in

This man was in Montezo?

Of course he was.

He killed dinelo Chicon.

Chicon was in the Cafe.

In a secret meeting.

And this man was there.

He was there.

That is how he hurt his eye.

Chicon blew off the cafe and
killed the   American students.

You people believe anything.

The students were killed by

Because the American military
didn't know they were there.

To cover it up,
they blamed the rebels and were

looking for their leader in
Las Calinas.

But they knew he was already

They knew they had killed him
with the bomb.

Thanks a lot.

You're welcome.

If it isn't the little miss
  o'clock news.

You're drunk.

You're suppose to call me...

And you got....

Charlie, I called you.

I was out.
But you could have called back.

I thought we had an agreement.

Excuse me.

I thought we had an agreement.

I thought me and you were fine.

But you know, partner don't...

Charlie, it worked.



I just spent an hour with the

He's the real deal.
He saw the whole thing.

Tom is innocent.

This proof that there's a cover
up and it is bigger than we


I need you sober!

Come on.

Yeah, alright.

Let's get you home.

Okay, baby.

No, Charlie.

Chris last one.
Just one more.

Forget about it.

I got it.

Come on partner.

Alright partner.

What the hell was that?

Oh, my God!

Shit, it's oil!

Hey, sweetie.

I had the worst dream.

I dream I was pregnant and
these people came took the baby


You one lucky girl.

You and the gentleman.

I want you to take something.

don't you worry about a thing.

You'll have another baby.


don't you worry.

You'll have another one.



Be strong, be strong.

Claire, is Charlie.

Come in.


How's your neck?

Oh, it's alright.

I had it worse the last time
looking at pretty women like you

on the street.

I'm truly sorry, Claire.

I wanted that baby so much,

You know I kept thinking.

Maybe there is something wrong
with me or I didn't deserve it.

I wouldn't be a good mother.

I really didn't think they'll
do something like this.

I'm at zero, Charlie.

Hold now. Listen to me.

I know about zero.

I've hit bottom.

And I was on my way back
before that accident.

But you know what?

I think we were spared for some

And you got to believe that.

So, if we are gonna make it
over this is day one.


You got another visitor.

Merry Christmas.

You alright?

I owe you an apology

We were mistaken.

That's ok.

Although I'm not sure 'merry'
is the right word to use around


Well, that's why you might be
wrong, Mrs. Kubik.

If it's true Hernandez injured
his eye in the bombing,

he would've got an immediate
treatment for it.

And they just keep records
about those operations so we can

go and look them up?

No, he would've insisted on it
for insurance purposes.

So the government can ensure
the amount of compensation.

Agent Mullins!

I just need a minute of your

Some how I'm sure it's not my
good looks for which I owe the

honour of this visit.

The press accepted the official
version of the story.

But what if Chicon didn't blow
up the cafe?

What if Hernandez blew up the
Cafe and killed the American

students by mistake?

What if General Marks wanted to
cover the whole thing up,

staged a raid in Las Calinas?

First of all this is not my
job. And is none of my business.

I'm just asking you just to
look in to it.

Big and lean one, chief.

Why not?
I know you have resources.


You keep saying it is not your

Good, I wasn't sure you were

Well, agent Mullins whose job
is it?

Come on! Whose job?

What a pain in the ass you are.

Hernandez was injured in the

There has got to be a
classified medical record.

Hey, Charlie, it's me.

How are you, Mac?

I've been checking out rumours
of how those witnesses really


I've been all over the place.
I've got expenses.

This is going to cost you.

You told me that.

I found the wife of the one who
is murdered.

She is living in Mexico.

And she swears,
military killed her husband.

Just inside.

Have you heard from Charlie?

He called about an hour ago.

But we was like really weird,
he can't speak on the phone.

Well, like Charlie, I don't
want to talk on the phone.

He did say he was in Mexico.

In Mexico?

What is he doing in Mexico?

Yeah, but I want to stop on
Los Angeles first.


So I'll see you.


You all have had him all night
and it's my turn.

Shall we?

We uncovered the real reason
you send detachment    to

Las Calinas.

Uncovered? It's a matter of
public record.

Well, not really.

What is a matter of record is
Hernandez sustained his eye

injury in a bombing at Montezo.

Eyewitnesses placed him in the
truck which the bomb was thrown.

And he had that injury treated
at the hospital in San Salvador.

The gung-ho raid,
was decoy for your bombing.

This fairy tale of yours would
have to be based on classified


Even any of it is possible.
And you're bluffing.

And you're doing it badly.

We be only too happy to have
you testify on the court to

fully explore our evidence.

For example classified document
dated  .   .  .

Hernandez's medical report,
for shrapnel wound,

Santa Maria hospital.

That is the same day and mighty
close to Montezo.

You have no shame.

Look at what you are willing to
do, to free a murderer.

Call the right people, I want
the charges drop and documents...

Have you notice that,
you've been unlucky lately?

Caution might be the order of
the day for you.

I'm not afraid of you.

I've already survived you once,
you smug son of a bitch.

The real question is will you
survive me?

Make it got away,
or the document goes public.

For both our sakes, sir.

Pull over, right here.




Claire! You alright?


What the hell is that all

Colonel Farrell wants us to be
in court tomorrow at     .

Waldron was disqualified from
the case for talking to the


Any word from Charlie?

I'm trying on his cell all day,
but just getting the voice mail.

We still have Hernandez's
medical report.

I'll do my best.

Farrell wouldn't admit
classified document anymore than

he would has with the tape.

Maybe we should take the deal.

There is no more deal.

I'm sorry.

Why don't you spend the night

I don't know if it is a good
idea to be around here tonight.

I ....

need a little time on my own.

You looking for Charlie?


What's going on, Honey?

I don't know.

All arise.

Be sitted.

Major Waldron, Mrs. Kubik please approach.

What the hell is this?

For reason of national

The department of defense
determine to withdraw the charges

against Chatman.

Court is close!

Sergeant Chatman,
you're free to go.

Oh, my God.

Let's get out of here.

Hey, Charlie, listen in case
you are interested pal, we won.

We are going to the Marane,
a while from this town.

If you ever want to call me,
there is where we'll be.

Hope you're ok.

Jesus, look at this.

What do you suggest I do?

Have Jackie met us on the next
block with our car.

Will there be more of them at
the airport?


Why do we need to bother?

Let's just drive.

That's everything.

You take care of yourself.

You too.

Thanks Jack.

Well, kid?

-Old man.

We're okay.
-Take care.

Thank you so much.

Thank you Lieutenant.

We are gonna to take our time.

So we'll call you when we get

Probably around  .

Good bye.
-Good bye.

A week before he was murdered,
he started calling an old marine

corps buddy.

Who incidentally was killed
about two months after Paul's.

I don't know what they talk
about but it really upset him.

You have no idea what it is
like to see somebody you love

killed right in front of you.

And you believe that this is
connected to the military?


It's just a feeling,
cause all women?

you know..

He just seem to recognize them,
the thing he did with hands.

Paul seems to know who he was.

You think that they are still
around here?

You know one thing that bother
me more than everything?

I couldn't protect you.

I just stand by and let them
hurt you.

We need some more champagne.

I love you.

I love you.

I thought, you unplugged that.

I did but I tried Charlie one
more time.

Hi, Claire, it's me.

Sweetheart I'm sorry.

I'll be right back.
-I'm sorry I wasn't there today.

I let you down.

Yeah, Charlie.

I'm real sorry.
I just, I couldn't get there.

Why is it Charlie? Of all days.

What if Marks opt to testify or

You know what,
I don't want to talk about it.

I thought I had a friend.

I am your friend.

Sure you are.

Just say a toast for my husband
while you drink yourself silly.

Good bye Charlie.

I am your friend.

I was being your friend today,
more that you care to know.

What do you mean?

We need to talk.

I just do not think that now is
the good time for it.

Where are you going?

I think this AA's meeting
should be anonymous.

I'm going to get some more

Okay, hurry back.

Are Marks and Hernandez
going to give us trouble?

Is Tom still there?

No, he's going to the stall.

Alright, get your computer,
hold up your calendar.

Find out where your husband
was on    Jan     .

Why are you doing this Charlie?

Look it up, it's important.

Tom is in Santa Fe.
He met a collector.

I pick him up from the airport.

   Feb     ?

Houston, Texas.

Claire listen to me.

Those are the dates that
witnesses were murdered.

Stampson was murdered on
January   th      at Santa Fe.

Alan died in Houston Texas,
February   th.

didn't Hernandez said that Tom
tossed his gun back and forth,

taunting his victim?


Stampson's wife say the man
shot her husband, then toss the

gun back and forth showing off,
before shooting him again.

I can't talk about this right


I'm sorry.

I just thought to let you know.

Alright, gotta go.

I thought you went to the

I grabbed the wrong keys.

Those are the right keys.

Those are Jack's keys.

What were you working on there?

You want to ran out with me to
get some champagne?

I'm not really in the mood for

-I'm sorry.

We'll just talk then.

Talk about what?

About what you are talking
about on the phone.

You think I'm stupid?

Why didn't you come to me and
talk about it?

You must like to keep your

Your life is one big secret.

You can tell me.

I certainly have the right to

Yes, I did.

trained to do.

They lied to me.

They told me they were

Want me to interrogate them.

So, I do?

information out of them and...

So I did.

It was the best I can do.
And he knew it.

What about Stampson and Alan?

What about Stampson and Alan?

Stampson saw me on the street
one day,

he told Alan and they have to
go away.

We will get over this.

You'll see.

Tom you're hurting me.

Stop it.

Tom. Stop it!

Look at me.

Shut up, shut up.

But, not talk about it cause I
might get spooked.

I mean who know what might

How are you holding up?


Same old associate?

Oh, yeah.

Put your bag down at the back

She hasn't come back from
lunch. She's probably busy.

Come and see me.

You know I often ask myself why

It didn't occur to me that I

You know,
it could be Grimes and Kubik.
