Aunt Frances:(V.O): For more than 200 years we Owens women have been blamed by everything that's ever gone wrong in this town.
(V.O): Is that why people hate us so much, Aunt Frances?
Aunt Frances (V.O): They don't hate us, sweetheart.
(V. O): We just make them a little nervous.
Aunt Frances (V.O): Let's face it, Jet, We Owens women have always created a stir. It all began with your ancestor, Maria.
A woman: She was a witch.
Aunt Frances (V.O): The first in our family. And you are the most recent in a long and distinguished line.
(V.O): Is that why they wanted to hang her? Because she was a witch?
(V. O): The fact that she was a bit of a heartbreaker didn't help. Nor did it help that most of her lovers had wives on the hanging committee.
Aunt Frances (V.O): But no, I didn't think it was either of those reasons. They feared her because she had a gift a power that has been passed on to you children. She had the gift of magic. And it was this very gift that saved her life. She was vanished to this very island. With her unborn child growing inside her belly. She waited for her lover to rescue her. But he never came. No one came. In a moment of despair, she cat a spell upon herself that she would never again feel the agony of love. But as her bitterness grew the spell turned into a curse. A curse on any man who dared love an Owens woman.
===== EXT. BEACH DAY=====
(V. O): Is that why Daddy died? From the curse?
Aunt Frances (V.O): Yes, my darling.
Aunt Frances (V.O): Your mother knew She heard the beetles ticking for your father's death all day long. She knew that when you hear the sound of the deathwatch beetle the man you love is doomed to die.
===== EXT. HOUSE =====
Aunt Frances (V.O): That's how you came to live
with us. You tucked you into our lives then. We've raised
you the best way we know how.
Aunt Jet (V.O): In this house we have chocolate
cake for breakfast. We never bother with silly things
like bedtimes or brushing our teeth.
Aunt Frances (V.O): But with the sweets comes
Aunt Jet (V.O): So when you find yourself the center of attention

Aunt Jet: Gillian, Sally. The only curse in
this family is sitting there at the end of the table.

Aunt Jet: Spare me.
Aunt Frances: What about my poor Ethan?
Aunt Jet: Fate.
Aunt Frances: Accident.
Young Sally: Mommy died of a broken heart, didn't
Aunt Frances: Yes, my darling girl, she did.

He has to leave her now.
Aunt Jet: Perhaps you might find one better
A woman: I don't want anyone else. He's all

Aunt Jet: Never.
Sally: God, I miss her.
Aunt Jet: Oh, sweetie! Oh, dear.
Aunt Frances: Oh, Samson! Now, just knock it
Sally: All I want is a normal life.
Aunt Frances: My darling girl, when are you
going to understand that "normal" is not necessarily
a virtue? It rather denotes a lack of courage.
Sally: Well, it's what I want.
Aunt Jet: See this couple? He's having an affair with the babysitter. And she can eat a cake in under a minute.

Sally: What spell? What are you talking about?
Oh, You didn't. Please tell me that my own flesh and
Aunt Jet: It was just a little push. You wanted
so much to be happy.
Aunt Frances: We never expected that you'd truly
Sally: Well, I did. And I want him back. You
brought him into my life. You bring him back! I have
never asked you for anything ! I never asked for spells,
but do this! You can bring him back.
Aunt Jet: No, dear. You don't do that!
Aunt Frances: You don't do that.
Sally: You can do this. I know you can. I remamber.
I found here when Mommy and Daddy died.
Aunt Frances: Even if we did bring him back,
it wouldn't be Michael. It'd be something else. Something
dark and unnatural.
Sally: I don't care what he comes back as. As long as he comes back. Please do this for me. Please!
=== EXT AUNT'S HOUSE DAY===

Mommy. It's the same time as yesterday and the day before
that, and the day before that. Out of bed, sleepyhead!
I'm worried about Antonia. Do you know she puts on her
mouse ears, she drives around town all liquored up.
Naked! All right. I'll see you around.
Sally: Come here, you! I'm sorry, baby. I'm
just so tired
Kylie:It's okay, Mommy.
===INT BEDROOM NIGHT===
Jimmy: I was just thinking about you.
Gillian: You are always thinking about me. Honey,
I just have to go to the bathroom.
Jimmy: Let's go together.
Gillian: Jimmy, come on.
Jimmy: I'm just kidding. Go.
===INT. BEDROOM NIGHT ===
(Gillian came home)
Sally: I was really, really happy. Sally We
were going to open a botanical shop. Michael'd get the
ingredients. And I'd make the stuff. He really loved
my mint-oatmeal shaving cream. He couldn't stop eating
it. I'm sure all this is really boring to you. But he
really made me lough.
Sally: Angelov? What kind of name is that?
Gillian: Huh, huh. He's from somewhere near
Transylvania. He has this whole Dracula-cowboy thing
about him. He's just so intense. I mean, he talks about
our rerationship in terms of centuries. Sometimes we
just stay up all night worshipping each other like bats.
Thank God for Jet's belladonna or I'd never get any
Sally: Why are you taking that stuff?
Gillian: I'm not using it. I just give it to
him every now and then. That's all.
Sally: So you're drugging your boyfriend to
get a little shut-eye? Doesn't that seem strange to
Gillian: Maybe. And he's strong. So much stronger
than me. He can survive the curse. Do you forgive our
Gillian: You'll never forgive yourself unless
you get up and you get dressed and brush your teeth,
because your breath stinks and you take care of those

Kylie: I hope you get chikenpox.

Antonia: No, she wasn't, Mom. She was not kidding.
Sally: What's wrong with you? We do not cast
and we do not toy with people's lives. Do you understand?
This is not a game.
Kylie: No, you don't cast. You probably couldn't
even if you tried! She has all this power and doesn't
Antonia: I think you really hurt Mom's feelings.
Antonia: Kylie thinks any man who marries us
is going to croak.
Aunt Frances: That's such hogwash. What about
your grandparents, Jack and Regina?
Kylie: grandma Regina died of broken heart,
didn't she? How could she do that? Leave Mom and Aunt
Gilly behind when they were just little girls?
Antonia: Why won't she talk about it?
Kylie: Was Mama good at spells as a girl? Why
won't she do spells now?
Sally: What's going on in here?
Aunt Frances: Nothing.
Aunt Jet: Just making toast, is all.

==INT. SALLY'S ROOM===
(Sally writes letter to Gillian)
Sally (V.O.) Dearest, Gilly. Sometimes I feel there's a hole inside me an emptiness that, at times seems to burn. I think if you lifted my heart to your ear, probably you could hear the ocean. And the moon tonight, there's a circle around it. A sign of trouble not far behind. I have this dream of being whole. Of not going to sleep each night, wanting. But still, sometimes when the wind is warm or the crickets sing I dream of a love that even time will lie down and be still for. I just want someone to love me. I want to be seen. I don't know. Maybe I've had my happiness. I don't want to believe it but there is no man, Gilly only that moon. (Phone rings) Gillian.
Aunt Jet: It's Gillian.
Sally: I know.
Sally: What's wrong?
Gillian: I'm scared. Can you come and get me?
Sally: Where are you? I'm taking the first flight
out. Watch the kids.
Aunt Jet: Just go to Gilly. The children'll
be fine. We'll take them to the solstic celebration.
Sally: Why can't you two just stay here?
Aunt Frances: We can't back out. We're on the
committee. We are presenting.
Sally: Fine. But I don't want them dancing naked under the full moon.
Aunt Jet: No, of course not, dear. Nudity is entirely optional, as you well remember!
=== INT. MOTEL ROOM NIGHT ===
Gillian: The room service here sucks.
Sally: Let's get you out of here.
Gillian: I'm fine.
Gillian: He's been really crazy, you know? We've
been driving for 2 weeks straight. I mean, not even
straight. In these zigzags, back and forth. Damn these
shose! Then today he says he wants a jelly doughnut.
An he says to the kid, "Jelly doughnut, with cream."
And the kid looked confused. And I said, "Jimmy,
jelly's not a cream." And then the kid laughed
and I laughed and then he punched me. He punched me
real hard. The bastard! Blood on the moon!
Sally: I know.
Gillian: Blood on the moon!
Sally: I know. Get in the car.
Gillian: Where's my tiger's eye? It brings me
luck. I left it. I got to get my tiger's eye!
Sally: It's probably in the bag, Gilly! Gillian, come on!
=== INT. CAR NIGHT ===
Jimmy: You drive.
Jimmy: You want some? Nope. Hey, Sally, you
ever read any books by Louis L'Amour? Okay, Louis L'Amour
is a foreigner and he loved all things cowboy. Just
like me, Jimmy-boy. So Louis would write stories about
rustlers. Rustlers who were really bad guys.
Gillian: (To Sally)The belladonna is in my bag.
Jimmy: They would try to steal the cattle. But
before they could sell them they would try to take away
the brand of the owner with an acid, or by scrubbing.
Unfortunately, they could never get rid of it. So they
would be caught and get hanged.
Sally: What are you doing?
Jimmy: Come on! You can't hide the brand. It's
just you and me. (To Sally) Watch the road!
Sally: Shut up! Rustlers and branding! Louis
L'Amour by the way is not a foreigner! He's from Noth
Dakota, you asshole! Jimmy: Watch the road!
Sally: You're freaking ne out, Dracula freak!
Give me the bottle before I plow you into a truck just
to get you to shut up!

I'll be good. I'll have babies.

And I worked really hard to get that normal.

mean to ruin your life. I just had no one else to turn

Sally: I'll probably get life. I should smoke
two at once. It'll shorten the sentence. I really don't
want to lose my children.

Sally: What are you thinking?
Gillian: When Muchael died, you asked the aunts
to bring him back.
Sally: But they wouldn't.
Gillian: Wouldn't. but couldn't.
Sally: No, They were right. He'd come back as
something dark and unnatural.

I don't care what he comes back as.

That was weird.
Aunt Jet: She's never been interested in her
gifts. She just made that all up.
Aunt Frances: Don't lie. Gillian has her own
magic. And we all know what it is.
Sally: Oh, please. Since when is being a slut
a crime in this family?

Gary Hallet: Yes, I did.
Sally: You should come here on Halloween. You'd

We kill our husband too. Or is that outside your jurisdiction?
Gary Hallet: Do you have any idea how strange
this all sounds to me? I got people telling me you're
here cooking up placenta bars you're into devil worship.
Sally: No, there's no devil in the craft.
Gary Hallet: So what kind of a craft do you
Sally: Do I do? I manufacture bath oils and
soaps and hand lotions and shampoo. And the aunts ..

to stay with me. Gilly, No, stay with me. Gilly, No,
stay with me.
Gillian: No, he wants me. Just me. Everyone
will be safe. Just let him take me.
Sally: Don't die on me, Gilly Owens, please.
Because we're supposed to die together, remember? The
same time. You promised me that. And this is not that
Gillian: I love you, Sally.
Sally: Okay, wait. I've got it. Get them back in a circle.
Sally: Hey, Jimmy, I got a worm with your name
on it. You thirsty? Is this is what you want? Well,
this ...you can't have. My blood. Your blood. Our blood.
Aunt Frances: Maria's blood. Now! Push her in.
Sally: I love you, Gillian.
Woman A: We did it.
Aunt Frances: Hands up. ladies. Ashes to ashes,
dust to dust.
Woman C: I wonder if that would work on my ex-husband?
Woman A: Come on, ladies, let's clean house!
Sally: Through kitchen. Follow me.
Woman A: Well done.
Sally: Sweep him to the roses.

investigations. Office hereby concluded James Angelvo's
cause of death was accidental. Jewely in ashes of structure
provided positive indentification. Sincerely, Gary Hallet
Gillian: I don't think he's in there, Sal.
Sally: What would you do, Gilly?
Gillian: What wouldn't I do for the right guy?
(Gary Hallet comes and kisses Sally.)
===EXT. HOUSE HELOWEEN NIGHT===
Sally (V.O.): Can love travel back in time and heal a broken heart? Was it our joined hands that finally lifted Maria's curse? I'd like to think so. There're some things I know for certain. Always throw spilled salt over your left shoulder. Keep rosemary by your garden gate. Plant lavender for luck. And fall in love whenever you can.
THE HAPPY END...
