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.

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

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.

You don't care about the truth.



All you care about,

Get out.



You want to know about

Women like you?

And the old people? begging for their lives.

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

Thanks a lot.



You're welcome.

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.

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.

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.

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

against Chatman.



Court is close!



Sergeant Chatman,

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

I couldn't protect you.



I just stand by and let them

hurt you.



We need some more champagne.



I love you.

I thought, you unplugged that.



I did but I tried Charlie one

more time.

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,

Find out where your husband

was on    Jan     .



Why are you doing this Charlie?



Look it up, it's important.

gun back and forth showing off,

before shooting him again.
