I'm calling state police in five minutes

Patrick Kenzie:
I'm calling state police in five minutes. They'll be here in ten.
Capt. Jack Doyle:
Thought you would've done that by now. You know why you haven't? Because you think this might be an irreparable mistake. Because deep inside you, you know it doesn't matter what the rules say. When the lights go out, and you ask yourself "is she better off here or better off there", you know the answer. And you always will. You... you could do a right thing here. A good thing. Men live their whole lives without getting this chance. You walk away from it, you may not regret it when you get home. You may not regret it for a year, but when you get to where I am, I promise you, you will. I'll be dead, you'll be old. But she... she'll be dragging around a couple of tattered, damaged children of her own, and you'll be the one who has to tell them you're sorry.
Patrick Kenzie:
You know what? Maybe that'll happen. And if it does, I'll tell them I'm sorry and I'll live with it. But what's never gonna happen and what I'm not gonna do is have to apologize to a grown woman who comes to me and says: "I was kidnapped when I was a little girl, and my aunt hired you to find me. And you did, you found me with some strange family. But you broke your promise and you left me there. Why? Why didn't you bring me home? Because all the snacks and the outfits and the family trips don't matter. They stole me. It wasn't my family and you knew about it and you knew better and you did nothing". And maybe that grown woman will forgive me, but I'll never forgive myself.
Capt. Jack Doyle:
I did what I did for the sake of the child. All right. For me, too. But now, I'm asking you for the sake of the child. I'm begging you. You think about it.

Transcript:
I'm calling state police in five minutes.
They'll be here in ten.
Thought you would've
done that by now.
You know why you haven't?
Because you think
this might be an irreparable mistake.
Because deep inside you, you know
it doesn't matter what the rules say.
When the lights go out
and you ask yourself,
"Is she better off here or better off
there," you know the answer.
And you always will.
You... You could do a right thing here.
A good thing.
Men live their whole lives
without getting this chance.
You walk away from it,
you may not regret it
when you get home.
You may not regret it for a year,
but when you get to where I am,
I promise you, you will.
I'll be dead, you'll be old. But she...
She'll be dragging around a couple of
tattered, damaged children of her own,
and you'll be the one
who has to tell them you're sorry.
You know what? Maybe that'll happen.
And if it does, I'll tell them I'm sorry,
and I'll live with it.
But what's never gonna happen
and what I'm not gonna do
is have to apologize
to a grown woman
who comes to me and says,
"I was kidnapped
when I was a little girl,
"and my aunt hired you to find me.
"And you did, you found me
with some strange family.
"But you broke your promise
and you left me there.
"Why? Why didn't you bring me home?
"Because all the snacks and the outfits
and the family trips don't matter.
"They stole me.
"It wasn't my family
and you knew about it
"and you knew better
and you did nothing."
And maybe that grown woman
will forgive me,
but I'll never forgive myself.
I did what I did for the sake of the child.
All right. For me, too.
But now, I'm asking you
for the sake of the child.
I'm begging you.
You think about it.
She's happy.
What?
She's happy here. I saw her.
Angie, don't do this.
If you call the police,
they will send her back.
I'm not sending her anywhere.
Helene is her mother.
She's better off here.
Why? Because he's got money,
and he makes her sandwiches?
Because he loves her.
- Helene loves her, too.
- Helene doesn't treat her that way.
Well, maybe she'll change.
She won't change.
People don't change.
Helene is arsenic.
Angie, I know that this is hard.
Look at me, I know it's hard.
But I need you to stand by me.
I need you to say,
"We're gonna make the right decision,
"and we're gonna
make everything okay."
Everything will be okay.
Because we're gonna leave her here,
and every now and then
we're gonna talk about her.
And where she is,
and about what grade she's in.
And that'll be okay, because
we're gonna know what school she's in,
and we're gonna know she's happy,
and she's got birthday parties,
and she smiles every day,
and she has sleepovers.
Baby, I'm sorry.
But you can't ask me
to do something that I can't do.
And you can't ask me to live with it.
Patrick, for me. Please?
I will hate you for doing this,
and I don't want to.
