Luke: Welcome, gentlemen. I wanted you to see the room where it all began. This is where Mark and I planned everything. Mark thought there was no way you were getting out of that church, but I told him, "You have to have faith. Ryan Hardy and Joe Carroll, they're badass." Dinner's soon, so make yourself comfortable, get a drink...
[Carroll picks up glass]
Ryan Hardy: Hey!
[Carroll sets glass down again]
Luke: ...and if you're worried about Claire, don't worry. She's with me.

...this one's for you. relating to crashing cars and duct tape bondage, to name a couple. This story is so absurd, it reminds me of a daytime soap, only a lot does actually happen, and I daresay there's a great deal more blood here(some cheesy makeup too) I can't stop watching. I can't help thinking that Kevin Bacon must have really needed the money, but he's still cute. Sadly, this role doesn't provide many (any?) opportunities for him to smile.
