You better take this along, Don. It's going to be cold on the farm.
How many shirts are you taking?
I'm taking five.
Yeah, I told them at the office I might not be back until Tuesday. We'll get there this afternoon.
That'll give us all Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday.
We'll make it a long wonderful weekend.
Sounds long, all right.
It'll be good for you Don, after what you've been through.
Trees and grass and sweet cider and buttermilk and water from that well that's colder than any other...
Wick, please, why this emphasis on liquids?
Very dull liquids.
You know, I think it'd be a good idea if we took along my typewriter.
To write. I'm gonna write there. Get started on that novel.
You really feel up to writing?
I mean, after what you've been through.
I haven't touched the stuff for ten days now.
I know. I know you haven't Don.
In the living room in the closet kinda towards the back.

Are you sure it's in the closet? I can't find it.
Well look by the desk.
Isn't it under your bed?
Did you find it?
Oh sure, sure here it is.
And here's some paper.
Tell you what we'll do, we'll fix up a table on the south porch and nobody'll disturb you.
And maybe Saturday we can run down to the Country Club.
I'm not going near that Country Club.
"Because they're a bunch of hypocrites and I don't like to be whispered about "
Look who's here from New York. The Birnam brothers or rather the nurse and the invalid.
Oh. Stop it Don. Nobody there knows about you.
No? The minute we get off the train the alarm is sounded
The leper is back, Hide your liquor.
That's Helen. I'll take it. Helen.
Hello, Wick. Where's Don?
I'm glad I made it. I was afraid you'd be gone. Presents.
The new Thruber book, with comical jokes and pictures.
A nice quiet little double murder by Agatha Christie.
Cigarettes, chewing gum and darling, have a wonderful time.
And don't forget, lots of sleep, lots of milk...
Lots of cider, lots of ice cold water from the well. I know.
And now I must be going. I've missed ten minutes of the concert already. So long Wick.
Barbirolli conducting. They gave me two tickets at the office.
Who are you going with?
What are they playing?
Brahms' Second Symphony, something by Beethoven somehing by Handel and not one note of Grieg.
Goodbye, boys. See you Monday.
Tuesday. Wait a minute.
Wick, I just had a crazy idea.
As for instance.
Who says we have to take the three fifteen train?
We could go on the six-thirty.
The clip The whiskey bottle Part 3 from The Lost Weekend (1945)
What are you talking about?
Well, I just thought we could take a later train and Helen wouldn't have to the concert by herself. She's got two tickets, hasn't she?
No, no. I'm not going to upset any plans. You're going on that three fifteen.
Oh. Now Helen, it's so silly!
A whale of a concert and an empty seat next to you.
No, Don. Everything's all set.
Now they'll be at the station to meet us and dinner'll be waiting.
Put in a call that we're taking the later train and have dinner at nine o'clock we'll be in bed by ten.
Nothing doing. We're going.
Wick is right. And don't worry about that empty seat.
I'll find myself a nice handsome South American millionaire.
There you are. Did you hear her.
Besides, we'd have to break our necks anyway to catch the train.
It's five to three.
Oh, don't be so stubborn Wick.
All right. Go ahead.
Just a minute. I'm not going.
Then what are we talking about?
Well, I want you to go. You and Helen.
Me and Helen?
That's the idea.
Who likes Brahms, you or I?
Since when don't you like Brahms?
I'll just stick around here and finish packing. Take a little nap maybe.
Nonsense. If anybody goes...Helen's your girl.
There's something in that, Don.
And what's more, I don't think you should be left alone.
I oughtn't be trusted. Is that it?
After what you've been through...
After what I've been through, I couldn't go to a concert.
I couldn't even face the crowds. I couldn't sit through it with all those people.
Besides, I want to be alone for a couple of hours and kind of assemble myself.
Is that such an extraordinary thing to want?
Don't act so outraged, would you mind?
All right. Anything else?
Come on, Helen.
You'll stay right here?
Where would I go?
Then you'll be here when we come back?
I told you, I'm not leaving this apartment.
You've told us a good many things, Don.
All right, if you don't belive me, why don't you tak emy key and lock me in like a dog.
We've got to trust Don. That's the only way.
Let's go Helen.
So long, Don.

That? It's whiskey, isn't it?
How did it get there?
I don't know.
I suppose it dropped from some cloud. Or someone was bouncing it against this wall and it got stuck there.
I guess I must have put it there.
Yes, you must.
Only I don't remember when.
Probably during my last spell, maybe the one before. I don't know.
Don't look at me like that, Helen. It doesn't mean a thing.
I didn't know it was there. Even if I had, I wouldn't have touched it.
Then you won't mind.
Now, you trot along with Helen.
Why? Because of that?
You think I wanted you out of the apartment because of the bottle?
I resent that like the devil and if there's one more word of discussion...
I don't leave on your blasted weekend.
Let's go, Wick.
You'll be good. Won't you, Don, darling?
Yes, Helen. Would you just stop watching me all the time, you two.
Let me work it out my way. I'm trying, I'm trying.
I know you're trying, Don.
We're both trying.
You're trying not to drink and I'm trying not to love you.
The clip The whiskey bottle Part 5 from The Lost Weekend (1945)
Call the farm Don and tell them we're taking the six-thirty.
Come on, Helen.
What if he goes out and buys another bottle?
With what? He hasn't a nickel. There isn't a store or bar that'll give him five cents' worth of credit.
Are you sure he hasn't got another bottle hidden someplace?
Not anymore, he hasn't. I went over the apartment with a fine toothed comb.
The places he can figure out!
