The trip was Andy's idea.
It was easier to say yes than argue.
Always that way with my sister.
She meant well.
A touch of the exotic east would get me away from all the things
that reminded me of what had happened.
But it didn't.
Wherever I looked,
I saw only the moment when my life ended.
Oh, my god!
'But our chances of being reborn' 'as a human being' 'are very, very slim.'
Please watch these steps. They're not exactly..
Uh, please, i-in the Buddhist world where suffering is the accepted condition of man
the attainment of perfect detachment is the, is the ultimate achievement.
'here, look what we have. Mm! Isn't this splendid?'
The reclining figure represents the Buddha just before he passed into nirvana
having at last divested himself of all earthly desire
hence the smile of perfect contentment.
I suppose I thought I might find something in the east
some kind of answer.
I stared at those stone faces..
...but nothing stirred in me.
I was stone myself.
'Yeah, we have here..'
'The Buddhist may not believe in a soul'
'but the sole of the Buddha's feet is a different matter.'
Now, yes, observe carefully the pictograms, ladies
and you will see not only a record of the Buddha's life..
Andy! - Here, hold this!
Don't move him!
'What's his name?' - 'Gael.'
ah. Parle francais? - Oui. Uh, Gael? Gael?
I'm a doctor. It's okay.
'Ah, good, where does it hurt? Tell me where it hurts.'
'here?' - aye, thank god!
'Alright. Sit up. Watch him for a couple of hours.'
'if he starts vomiting, gets dizzy' 'take him to a hospital, okay?'
Don't forget, eight o'clock, mandalay lounge.
I'll be giving an illustrated lecture to prepare us for the architectural joys of Thailand
a lot of wonderful slides.
Could we have our key, please?
Could you try this number again, please?
When we ran this country, it worked!
My key, please! - Hello?
Seven days here is seven days too long!
My key! - Oh!
I can't believe that child falling today off of the Buddha!
Where was his mother? - I don't know.
Maybe this trip wasn't such a good idea.
Yes, it was.
It hasn't helped, though. Has it?
Yes, it has. Really, it has.
No, it hasn't.
My skin is so dry.
I know you don't wanna hear this,
but I think the best thing you could do is go back to work.
I never should have been working in the first place.
What do you mean?
I could have been spending that time with Nick and our boy.
But we were so proud of you, especially Nick.
He wanted you to be a doctor.
What would he want now?
I know I promised I wouldn't talk about it on this trip.
But I did. - So?
Uh, stop! Uh, I dare you!
You dare me to stop? - Yeah. Ah!
Oh, god. What?
It's okay. Go back to sleep.
America, la? Are you america? - Yes.
'Aung San suu kyi! Aung San suu kyi!' - 'aung San suu kyi!' - 'Aung San suu kyi!'
American? Are you American? - Yes.
American knows aung San suu kyi!
'No, I don't.' - 'Very famous.'
she's very beautiful. - She will lead us to democracy.
Come. Come up here! You will see better up here. Come! Look!
Where is she?
Look! Here she comes now!
'Aung San suu kyi!' - 'Aung San suu kyi!'
Hello, little one.
Aung San suu kyi!
What, what's the matter? Laura, where did you go?
Laura, the-these young men were just telling us you could have run into some very serious trouble.
There are many hooligans out tonight.
I can't believe you called the police. - This is not funny!
The colonel says you Americans think other nations' laws don't apply to you.
Well, here they do.
You broke curfew.
You could go to prison for that.
Yeah, well, tell him that your country doesn't seem to have a law against men pointing guns at women!
Do you? Do you?
I want to apologize for my sister. She means no disrespect.
Uh, well-well, don't worry, we're on the 8:30 A.M. flight for Bangkok in the morning
and we couldn't get into anymore trouble even if we wanted to.
You may go. - Go. Go.
Uh, well, thank you, uh, for your concern. 'I'm sure we'll, we will all be alright now.'
uh, sorry you had to, uh, come out so late.
What is wrong with your sister?
Her husband and boy were murdered. They were shot dead. They're dead.
Oh, my god! I had no idea. She just told me she wasn't married.
Well, she isn't, is she?
'It's got to be here some place.' I-It's not.
You had your passport when you went out last night, right?
I'm sure I had it in my purse.
Well, I guess those people weren't all as idealistic as you thought.
I can't believe one of them would have taken it.
What am I gonna do with you?
Come on. Get dressed. We're gonna be late.
'This airport is closed..'
what happened? - They won't let her go without a passport.
You're not serious! They even suggested she tried to sell it in the streets, for god's sake!
That's ridiculous! - They won't even take a bribe!
But what are we gonna do? - You're going to have to go to the embassy and get a new one,
you'll probably get on Friday's flight.
As for us, we're getting on this one right now!
'I'm staying with her.' - 'No, you're not!'
you'll only get arrested. A lot good you'll do her in jail.
And what would they arrest me for?
You can't stay in this country for more than seven days.
