A Trailer


Abortion/Life Content:

Christian Bale: C’mon, woman. I’m going crazy.

Tammy Trull: I can’t.

Bale: A little blood never scared me.

Trull: It’s not that.

Bale: What then?

Trull: Soon, they will have milk.

Bale: Milk? Didn’t you take your ####in’ injections?

Trull: Don’t get ####ed off. You did your part. I can do the rest myself.

Bale: You’re going to the doctor and getting it taken care of.

Trull: No. I love you, and I want to have your child. If you want to run away, go. I don’t need your help.

Bale: You’re ####ing nuts. What if I punch you in the belly?

[a slap to Bale’s face]

Trull: No one speaks to me like that. Not you. Not my father.

Bale: Maybe I should just shoot you.

Trull: Go ahead. Go ahead. I’m going to lose my life someday. Why not at the hands of the man I love?

[Bale pulls out gun]

Bale: Is that true? Think I am playing?

[gun placed under her chin]

Bale: You don’t know what I can do.

Trull: Yes, I know what you can do. But, I still love you. Because I see you, not your deeds. If you want to kill me… Because I love you… Then do it.

Bale: You ####ed up, woman. I’ll do it. It’s easy.

Christian Bale: I’m cool. Look, dude, she told me she was pregnant. I had a panic attack. I pulled my gun.

Freddy Rodriguez: Come on, dawg, I thought you loved her, dude.

Bale: I do.
