[as they are driving they are listening to “I Got 5 On It” on the radio]
Jason Wilson: What dies I Got 5 On It mean?
Zura: It’s about drugs?
Gabe Wilson: It’s not about drugs. It’s a dope song. Don’t do drugs.
Adelaide Wilson: Get in rhythm.
[she starts clicking her fingers so Jason starts nodding his head to the song]
Adelaide Wilson: There you go. There you go.
[to Adelaide; referring to the children]
Mrs. Tyler: I can’t believe how big they’ve gotten.
Mr. Tyler: Did you hear Gabe got a boat?
[on his boat]
Gabe Wilson: Go, daddy!
Zura: He’s kidding, right?
Adelaide Wilson: He’s not kidding?
Mrs. Tyler: Hey, I think it’s vodka clock.
Mr. Tyler: Oh, yeah.
Adelaide Wilson: Where’s Jason?
Adelaide Wilson: [to Jason] I didn’t know if you were lost. Stick with me and I’ll keep you safe.
Adelaide Wilson: [to Gabe] Do you know how sometimes things line up, coincidences? Since we’ve been up here they’ve been happening more and more. It’s like there’s this black cloud hanging over us.
Jason Wilson: There’s a family in our driveway.
Gabe Wilson: It’s probably the neighbors.
[they look out the window at the family in their driveway]
Gabe Wilson: Are they trying to scare my family?
[to the family in their driveway]
Gabe Wilson: Hi, can I help you?
Adelaide Wilson: Zura, put your shoes on.
[to the family]
Gabe Wilson: If you want to get crazy, we can get crazy.
[to the family, who looks exactly like them]
Gabe Wilson: What are you people?
Jason Wilson: It’s us.
Adelaide Wilson: They look exactly like us. They think like us. They know where we are.
Adelaide Wilson: We need to move and keep moving. They won’t stop until they kill us, or we kill them.
Adelaide Double: Be careful.
