Dale:  Man, it’s hot down here. I’ll leave my coat upstairs.

Ella:  Oh man, I’m cold. I think we’re hot on her trail.

Dale:  Let’s turn and see.

Ella:  Come on.

Dale:  Wow.

Ella:  What is this?

Dale:  Man.

Ella:  Smells God awful down here.

Evil Beren: Ssh!

Ella:  Look!

Dale:  Woah! There’s a chair!

Ella:  It’s empty though. We just missed her. The chair, it’s still warm.

Dale:  The water, it’s still cold.

Ella:  We’re close!

Dale:  We’re very close.

Evil Beren: If you make one sound, I’ll do you in. It’s curtains. It’s all over.

Beren:  I’ll be quiet. I’m sorry.

Dale:  It looks like we lost her.

Evil Beren: Meet me at the waterfront at twelve. No. I have my list of demands. I need twelve million dollars in unmarked bills, plane tickets to Istanbul...Mhmm. No. Coach is fine. No. Beren will be OK. OK. I’ll see you there at the waterfront.

Discussion

When Dale and Ella get into the basement, they find a warm chair and cold water, evidence that Beren has just left.

They don’t realize that Evil Beren is just around the corner, keeping Beren quiet. She says she’ll kill her if she makes any noise.

Dale and Ella give up and leave the basement. Later, Evil Beren calls them and tells them that if they meet her and give her some money and plane tickets, she’ll let her sister go without hurting her.

In the movie Airheads, one of the characters famously asks the police for a football helmet full of cottage cheese as one of his demands to release some hostages. If you were a criminal negotiating with the police, what your demands be?

Nowadays there are many people including criminals demanding for money or something like that. And, in my point of view, everybody, including me and you should demand by love instead of things which can be burnt or spent easily in useless stuffs.
