Every Day (2018) Movie Script

Justin, let's go!
Justin. Hello, Justin.
Set an alarm for 11:00 p.m.
and set another alarm
for 11:50 p.m.
Rhi, 6:30, hon.
I'm up!
Oh, my God.
- Hello!
- Hi!
Oh, thanks, babe.
I need you to run those
errands today for me, please.
I don't really know
about today.
Just try. Okay, Nick?
See you later.
Jolene, breakfast. Come on!
- No!
- We're gonna be late.
Um... I could also drive,
if you want.
I mean, I could actually
use the practice.
Does that have spinach in it?
Yeah, Dad says spinach
has antioxidants.
Mmm. You know
what else has antioxidants?
- Your balls. Yeah.
- My balls.
Well, Dad says
it's important, so...
What's going on up here, huh?
Justin, my goon!
Yo, don't ignore me, bro.
Right, sorry. Hey, goon.
You okay?
Yeah, I'm good. All good.
I'm so tired.
I wanna drop Model UN,
but if I don't get
into Stanford,
I will literally cry to death.
That campus is so beautiful.
And their mascot is,
not even joking, a tree.
You're gonna apply
with me, right?
Yeah. For sure.
Where even is Justin?
I mean, what's up with him?
He takes you
totally for granted.
I'll be right back.
Look, I'm sorry
for texting you so much.
I was gonna text you "Sorry"
again this morning,
but I'd already
texted you so much,
And also, I know you don't
like it when I apologize,
so I guess I'm sorry
for saying "I'm sorry."
- Yeah?
- Don't be sorry.
That was on me.
I should've written you back.
No, you don't have to text me
every time I text you.
I think I do.
Well, I can come watch
your practice if you want.
That doesn't sound
that much fun for you.
Why are you
looking at me like that?
Like what?
What else do you have today?
Other than practice?
Nothing. No tests or anything.
Maybe it would be fun
if we just went somewhere?
Like, after school?
Or even now?
Is that something we do?
Well, couldn't it be?
He's an outstanding player.
He's young,
he has an ERA of 1.68.
He's not that
young! Twenty-three! He's...
Twenty-three years old!
This what you wanna listen to?
- Yeah.
- I mean, look at his record.
He got eighteen wins...
How about you
throw on some music?
What are you talking about?
They're gonna dump him?
Eighteen wins
against substandard teams...
All the money in the world
Couldn't buy back those days
- You pull back
- You pull back the curtain
And the sun burns
into your eyes
You know this song?
How did I not know that?
You watch a plane flying
Across the clear blue sky
This is the day
Your life will surely change
This is the day
When things fall into place
Saved your life!
Saved your life!
All right, come on!
"You have a nice smile."
Story checks out.
Good job, cookie.
Bad job, cookie.
It's not a fortune.
It's not?
No. A fortune would be,
"You will have a nice smile."
Because a fortune is supposed
to tell you the future.
Or something
you don't already know.
Like that you have
a nice smile.
It's just Dad.
You don't talk about him.
Like, ever.
He had a manic episode
a few years ago.
It's no big deal.
I had no idea.
Yeah, I haven't really
told anyone about it.
Not even Rebecca.
You don't have to, obviously.
Sometimes I want to.
It's just...
I don't know.
Well, what happened, exactly?
He came home one day
and told us he got
a big promotion.
He took us out to some French
restaurant to celebrate.
And then we went to a movie.
He paid the guy
some crazy amount
so we could have the whole
theater to ourselves.
I'm guessing no promotion?
No. He had actually
just gotten laid off
and snapped.
So, no new rich life.
And my mom
had to take a second job
and we almost lost our house.
And now even if he could work,
I don't know
who would hire him.
He just sits around
and makes paintings of faces.
Sometimes people need a break.
Life gets too much.
It sounds like you resent him
for checking out, though.
I want to talk to him
about that day and why,
but I can never seem
to figure out what to say.
I don't know why
I'm telling you all this.
I'm glad you did.
It feels good.
It's your turn. Go.
Yeah, I mean,
I hate French food, too.
Snails and croissants.
I mean, what's that about?
- I meant, open your cookie.
- Oh.
See you tomorrow.
What's wrong?
You know every day
won't be like this, right?
I know.
But, maybe,
it helps you remember
you like spending
time with me?
Look, I just mean, today...
Today was the happiest day
I've had in a long time.
Tomorrow is tomorrow.
Let's end today
on a nice note.
That's the nice note.
Also, your mouth
tastes so much better
when you don't smoke.
I'll try to remember that.
Set an alarm for 11:00 p.m.
and set another alarm
for 11:50 p.m.
Hello, Amy.
Hey, what's going on?
Excuse me.
My family just moved
here from DC.
My mom told me to shadow
someone at the school today,
but she didn't
set anything up.
So embarrassing.
Could I shadow you?
I don't know what that is, no.
What is that?
Yeah, sure.
Rebecca, Alexander,
this is Amy,
who might be coming here.
Hey, Amy. You've got a great
person to show you around.
Yeah, Alexander's a huge fan.
Okay, all I meant was Rhiannon
is super generous
with her time.
Yeah, you wish!
Don't worry, we're friends.
He likes when I tease him.
How about we get back
to the lab now?
Hey, Justin!
Coach is pissed off at me
for blowing off practice.
Uh... Amy,
this is my boyfriend, Justin.
Did we drink yesterday?
No, why?
We just left school and went
to Baltimore yesterday.
Just out of the blue.
It was amazing.
Yeah, I'll take
your word for it
'cause I can't remember
a thing about it.
What part?
Pretty much the whole day.
It's super foggy,
like I'm hungover
or something.
Now I've to make up work
in three stupid classes
by tomorrow,
but I have a shift
till 10:00 tonight.
So my life basically
sucks right now.
Okay, so you had
an amazing day
with your gorgeous,
incredible girlfriend.
And to you that sucks?
I'm sorry. Who is this
and what is her deal?
Who are you?
Why are you
bitching and moaning
about the only
good thing in your life?
Chill, it's fine.
Okay, great talk. Gotta go.
Rhi, don't forget about
Steve's party on Saturday.
I'm sorry.
I'm just allergic to
unappreciative dicks.
That's not who he is.
You deserve better.
I'm sorry.
It was in your face.
It's okay. I'm okay.
You're very sweet.
But actually,
I'm not feeling great.
Alexander, would you mind
taking Amy for the rest
of the day?
Thank you.
I'm gonna need you to
ghostwrite some texts for me.
First, text Abby.
Just a bunch of tree emojis.
And then, second,
text Will something
cute but mean.
Like, over-the-top mean,
but, like, still cute.
Can't it just wait
until we get home?
No, why?
It's just stuff with Justin.
Is this stuff
that he's a douchebag?
All right, look.
You have two options.
One, break up with him!
And, two, cheat, like, a lot.
Crazy amounts.
With crazy amounts of dudes.
You know,
like how Lindsey does?
Mom doesn't cheat.
I don't wanna
talk about it anymore.
All right. Great.
Set an alarm for 11:00 p.m.
and another alarm
for 11:50 p.m.
- You sure you don't mind?
- No, of course not.
Thanks, babe. I just need
to get super wasted tonight.
- Yup.
- Steve, my goon!
- My goon!
- What's up, man?
Hey, Stephanie.
Hey, guys. What's going on?
- Hey!
- Hi!
Justin's over there.
Thank you.
That's so weak.
Shoot it!
- Oh!
- Hey!
Well, you didn't
wake up this morning
'Cause you didn't go to bed
You were watching the whites
of your eyes turn red
The calendar on your wall
was ticking the days off
You've been reading
some old letters
You smile and think
how much you've changed
All the money in the world
Couldn't buy back those days
You pull back the curtains
And the sun burns
into your eyes
You watch a plane flying
across a clear blue sky
This is the day
Your life
This is the day
- When things fall
- Into place
I don't think I know you.
Do you go to Octavian?
No, I'm Nathan.
Steve's cousin.
I'm Rhiannon.
That's a lovely name.
Oh, thank you.
I don't like it.
Well, everyone thinks
it's Rihanna,
as in,
"Bitch Better Have My Money".
Also, no one can spell it.
That's their problem.
It's a beautiful name.
Thank you.
Yo! Hey! Who's this?
This is Nathan,
Steve's cousin.
Steve's gay cousin.
All right. Hey.
You got nothing
to worry about, Galahad.
But your girlfriend might.
Thanks, I guess.
I'm gonna be upstairs.
You wanna go someplace
not upstairs?
Your boyfriend,
not a dancer?
Not today, apparently.
Why are you with him?
Because we love each other.
it's really good with him.
I mean, he's my type.
Ah, okay.
What's your type?
Tall, slim, nice shoulders.
What's wrong
with nice shoulders?
No, nothing.
I don't know, I guess I'm just
more of a butt guy myself.
But, you know, I get it.
I guess when
you've seen as many...
Seen as many butts?
No, no.
Real talk?
Not a fan of some dude
mackin' on my girlfriend.
Don't care if he's gay.
Real talk.
You gotta get your cousin
Nathan in line.
He is gay, right?
Bro, what cousin?
I just know that
you can be attracted
to way more people
than you think.
How do you know?
I'm sorry, I have to go.
Oh! We're not done here.
I'll call myself
so that I have your number.
You don't want this number.
I'm gonna get a new
number tomorrow.
- You're getting a new number?
- There he is!
Rhi! That's not
Steve's cousin!
I don't even think he's gay!
- What?
- I'm sorry, I have to go.
- I'll explain later. Promise.
- What?
Where are you going?
Go, go, go!
Oh, hell no!
Wait, you guys!
Come on, come on!
Leave him alone!
Don't creep on our women,
little dude!
Rhi, give me my keys!
No, Justin, you can't!
- Justin!
- My keys!
you cannot drive right now.
Who even was that?
Siri. Hey, Siri!
Do I have a phone?
It is 6:29 a.m.
This teenager missed curfew,
then said the Devil
made him do it.
Monroeville's Nathan Daldry,
was found
asleep around 1:00,
Saturday morning,
by the side of a highway
with a broken back windshield.
His explanation...
He had been
possessed by Satan.
Your boy took down
his social media.
So tell us what happened.
Guess I gotta
talk to him in person.
Justin, what are you thinking?
Leave him alone.
He's disturbed.
Then why were you even
hanging out with him?
I don't know.
And one day,
I was fine.
So, Friday night
he was super weird.
And then, this morning,
I get a text from
a random number.
"If you meet me in person,
somewhere public,
I can explain.
Please come alone."
Oh, my God. Are you going to?
I don't know, should I?
I think you have to.
This is the coolest,
creepiest thing
that has ever happened.
Tell me you're alone.
You're alone, right?
I'm sorry, do I know you?
Oh, Nathan sent me.
Oh, um...
Where is Nathan?
He's here.
In a way. I mean, he's not,
like, "here" here,
but he also wasn't there
on Friday when you met him.
Or you thought
that you met him.
You know, you actually didn't.
Today I'm Megan.
The day that you met Nathan,
I was Nathan. All right?
And the day that Amy shadowed
you at school, I was Amy.
And the day that you went
to the beach with Justin...
I was Justin.
Because I am someone
who wakes up
in a different body every day.
Always someone my age.
Never too far from the last,
never the same person twice,
and I have absolutely
no control over any of it.
Okay, did Rebecca
tell you I'd be here?
She wasn't supposed
to tell anyone.
I don't know why it happens,
I don't know how.
I mean, this is...
No one's ever tried
to explain it to me.
And this is the first time
I've ever actually
told anyone about it.
And I know
I'm not doing a good job.
Okay. Um...
Thank you.
This is all very good,
but I think I should go.
"You have a nice smile."
That was the fortune
that you got.
The fortune that we both got.
You told me about the day
that your dad got laid off.
You told me about
the French restaurant.
Okay, just stop.
I told Justin those things,
not you.
He has nothing
to do with this.
He's the only one who does.
I spent the day with him.
And now he and you and Nathan,
and God knows who else
are playing some stupid joke.
And, honestly,
I don't even want to know why.
So just, please, stop.
He doesn't talk to you
like this.
He doesn't spend days with you
like the one that
we had together, okay?
He doesn't see you.
You have to know
that that wasn't him.
It's not possible.
It is.
Hey! I'm all right.
I seem not all right to you?
I'm fine.
Do you wanna study at my place
after school?
- "Study."
- Who's Megan?
I don't know any Megan.
Did you tell anyone
about what I told you about
what happened with my dad?
Honestly, I don't
even remember
what you told me
about your dad.
What's wrong with you?
Are we hanging out or what?
Hey! It's me, A.
Hi. Um...
Wait, "A"?
He's James, but I'm A.
Like, just A, like the letter.
I'm still not convinced
that this is real.
Who named you A?
I did. I wanted a name that no
one else was likely to have.
Okay, the day you were Justin,
what was I wearing?
Peasant blouse, jean shorts.
You know what
a peasant blouse is?
Half the time
I wake up as a girl.
Although, I will say,
I think that James
could totally pull it off.
I think...
Got the physique for it,
all that good stuff.
What was the last thing
I said to you that day?
"Your mouth tastes
so much better
when you don't smoke."
And the name
you called Justin
to his face when
you were Nathan?
What? Oh, Galahad.
And when you were Amy,
who showed you around
after I did?
You still could be a liar.
Just a ridiculously
well-prepared liar.
Or I could be
telling you the truth.
Or I could be going insane.
Who are you?
Who are your parents?
Do they switch
bodies every day?
Hey, do you mind if we go
somewhere a little
more private?
Okay, maybe if you were
a petite cheerleader again.
But I'm not sure
you fully realize this.
You're a big,
threatening dude today,
so, absolutely not.
I get it.
I don't know
if I have parents.
I assume so,
but I have no one to ask.
So, every day of your life,
you've just woken up, and...
Just tried to live that day
for that person.
Not mess anything up for them,
make no mark, leave no trace.
And you're never
that person again?
No. I might see them
at school
a week or a month later.
If I'm in the same area.
So, like,
when you're somebody,
are you them or still you?
I'm me.
You know, my consciousness,
my memories.
But then I can also access
their history
and their memories.
But not all at once.
The longer I'm in
someone that day,
the more I know about them.
Who else have you told this?
I told you, no one else.
That sounds really lonely.
Can be.
And sad.
But it isn't
because I've seen so much.
I know what makes
each person different,
and what makes everyone
the same, you know?
I've seen the same
color blue
look 50 different ways with
50 different pairs of eyes.
But you never get to stay
with anything long enough
to watch it grow.
It's true.
But I'd like to, though.
If I show you something,
will you promise
to show no one else?
Check out my Instagram.
I've posted pictures
any days that I could.
Of people I've been,
and the things that I've seen.
Of course it's a risk.
I have to scrub
the login information
every night
before I go to bed
but it's good
to have a record.
This still doesn't
prove anything.
I mean, you could
just be getting these
from other people
or the Internet.
I could, but I'm not.
Wait, wait.
Can we please meet again?
I don't know. Yes, maybe.
Just let me process this
for a little while, okay?
Bye, A.
Did you need me?
I'm good.
It's me.
Yet another person
has the unique idea
to prank me by pretending
to be the Devil.
No, no.
I'm hoping to write something
for my school newspaper.
Actually, I do recognize you.
You do?
I'll meet with anyone
interested in the truth.
See, he did something
to my memory
so the whole night's
kind of hazy.
I remember dancing.
I was in this unnaturally
tiny house.
Then running for my life.
Apparently, that evening,
I told my mom that
he needed to borrow a car
so I could go help
some friends
write a musical about Jesus.
And this should go
in your story.
When he was within me
he used my phone to access
his Instagram account.
I was on Satan's social media.
It was intense.
It was a record
of all the other teenagers
that he's taken over.
Can I see?
He kicked me off
and changed the password
before I could save
any of the photos
but I recognize you.
What do you mean?
From one of the photos.
In the aquarium.
That was you.
He possessed you, too,
didn't he?
No, I wasn't possessed.
When he was within you,
did he talk to you?
I think that's
enough for today.
Did you get a sense
of what he was like?
Like, his personality?
I know his personality.
It's pure evil. He's Satan.
Thank you.
Justin, you cannot
threaten him!
It's not a threat.
I'm just gonna tell him,
"Little dude, next time
you talk to my girlfriend
I'mma help you out
by beating the Devil
out of you."
How is that a threat?
Justin, that's the literal
definition of a threat.
Rhiannon, tell him.
Rhiannon, tell her.
No. Are you a dictionary?
Are you a child?
I'm not a child.
How did you know it was me?
Just the way you looked at me.
Also, she doesn't go here.
He doesn't go here.
You're not very good
for his attendance record.
I'm not good for anyone's
attendance record.
Come on.
Look, I thought you said
you didn't wanna mess
anyone's life up.
Speaking of which,
what happened to Nathan?
I had to see you.
I tried to get him home,
put him to bed
but at 11:59, I pulled over
and passed out
except I screwed up
and forgot to erase
my Instagram info.
He thinks you're the Devil.
If I'm the Devil,
humanity has nothing
to worry about.
That's exactly what the Devil
would want humanity to think.
I can't win with you
suspicious mortals, can I?
why are you doing this?
The day we met,
I felt something
I've never felt before.
And I don't wanna let that go.
About that day,
how is it okay, what you did?
I let you kiss me because
I thought you were Justin.
I told you something
incredibly personal
because I thought
you were Justin.
He never would've understood.
I was in his mind, Rhiannon.
I know him.
Are you serious?
I know him better than you do.
He is my boyfriend.
You know you shouldn't
be with him.
Who should I be with, then?
I mean, off the top
of my head, that's an option.
This isn't funny, A.
This is so weird.
I mean, today you're...
Not everyone's body
aligns with their mind.
But I'm not asking you to give
Vic a chance, Rhiannon,
I'm asking you
to give me a chance.
What do you remember
from that day at the beach?
That it was super good?
I also remember this.
Can I ask you something else?
What do you like about us?
Yeah, like, our connection.
We're so connected.
Because we're...
We make a really great team.
Like, we've always
got each other's backs,
like, when you wouldn't
let me drive drunk
the other night at Steve's.
That was super clutch.
And, I mean, that night
with that weird dude,
it reminded me
that I would fight like crazy
not to lose you.
You know?
'Cause our connection
is really powerful.
Steve was so wasted
at the party.
He's flirting with
this girl from Monroe
and turns out that's
Stephanie's best friend.
Jolene, can I have the car
when we get home?
That's the shit I don't like.
I have to hit the library.
I hope we still have
some time to do stuff.
I basically had to steal
my sister's car.
You were easy to find,
at least.
You're the only person
here my age.
Do I know you?
Oh, my God. I'm so sorry.
I mistook you
for someone else.
I don't know
what he looks like.
It's not a Tinder thing.
I'm kidding. It's me, A.
Oh, my God!
- That was not funny!
- It was a joke.
I can't believe
you just did that.
- I never get to do this.
- That was not funny!
Maybe it was a little funny.
Nice shirt, by the way.
His mom buys his clothes.
Actually, I kinda like it.
Well, he hates it.
I've been in homeschool
situations before,
and some were great.
But this one's prison.
And the warden is a mom
who speaks really slowly.
But you got her
to take you to a library?
Yeah, for an hour.
And I have to have
50 new facts
memorized by the time
she picks me up.
Okay, so let's get you
some facts.
It can wait.
Tell me about your day.
It was just a day.
I was thinking about you.
You were?
You were?
Yeah, well, I mean,
what was it like
when you were younger,
being you?
Best I could tell,
I was born somewhere
in Phoenix, maybe.
But the family I was with,
this one day,
they flew to Detroit
for a wedding.
And I bounced around Michigan
for a while.
You couldn't
get back to Arizona?
No. Like I told you,
I can't choose
who I wake up in.
But I meant,
what was it like for you?
I didn't figure out I was
different from other people
until I was six or so.
What tipped me off
was the way people would
talk about tomorrow.
The things we'd do,
the places we'd go.
As though
we'd all be together.
Which I knew we wouldn't.
But anytime
I tried to say that,
the people,
they wouldn't understand.
They'd think it was
a joke or a game.
Or else they'd get worried.
After a while,
I just realized my tomorrows
are very different
from everyone else's.
And you never
found anyone else like you?
I mean, I search online,
message boards
people talking about
being taken over.
There's a subreddit
that's interesting.
Should we get you some facts?
- Yeah. Yeah.
- Okay.
47, chicken.
Chicken gestates for 22 days.
48, goat.
Goat gestates
for 136 to 160 days.
49, groundhog.
Groundhog gestates
for 31 to 32 days.
50, kangaroo.
Kangaroo gestates
for 32 to 39 days.
Wow. These are great.
They're really gonna
unsettle his mom.
So, how'd I do?
I don't know, I didn't check.
You didn't check?
I think I did all right.
I think so, too.
Where's my reward?
What kind of a whore...
- She really does talk slow.
- Yeah.
- ...seduces my son?
- Hey, just run.
- Are you sure?
- Yeah, run!
Rhi, 6:30.
Holy shit!
What is it?
I will be cool about this.
I promise.
Nick, it's Walmart,
not the Yukon.
I can't. Please?
Everything okay?
Yeah. Just,
have a good day at work.
Hey, wait.
Come here.
I need to go to DC on Sunday
with my team for a pitch.
We could squeeze in
a little sightseeing,
little shopping,
if you wanna come?
I wanna come.
Okay, have a good day.
I love you.
Be cool, be cool, be cool.
I'm sorry!
I didn't mean to look.
Dude, were you gonna wake
me up? We're gonna be late.
What the shit are you doing?
Siri, set an alarm
for 11:00 p.m.
Your makeup looks different.
It's good.
Oh, my God!
I'm sorry,
I completely forgot.
It's okay, I hate that shit.
Everything okay with you?
You just look
really pretty today.
So do your balls.
All right,
keep your panties on.
You're lookin' sexy today.
I mean, more than usual.
Well, thanks.
Thank you for lookin' so sexy.
Do you wanna get out of here,
and go back to my place?
Maybe not today.
I thought you like
when we do that.
You have no idea
what I like, do you?
Excuse me?
I like leaving with you
if you're going to give me
a special day.
If you're going
to give me a day
of fooling around
in your gross room
watching you play video games,
and maybe getting
McDonald's for lunch
that does not qualify
as special.
Qualifies as awesome, though.
No, it doesn't.
We've had one awesome day
in months.
I'm sick of hearing
about this day!
Is that because
you don't remember it,
because you weren't
really there?
Do me a favor
and don't talk to me
again today.
Are you on
your period already?
It's been, like,
a week and a half.
you're not a father!
I'm sorry.
I lost control.
Please, please don't be
mad at me tomorrow.
Everything okay?
Dad, why do you paint?
You never ask about my work.
I think when I started
doing insurance
and gave up on painting,
that maybe I bottled up things
that I shouldn't have.
All those years, doing
something that wasn't me.
Took its toll?
So why faces?
I suppose it's like
"Write what you know."
Paint what you see.
In my mind's eye...
This is what I see.
Some face of someone
I don't know.
They're just there.
I wanna give 'em
the space to exist, live...
I could use a fresh face.
Wanna sit for me?
- Yeah?
- Yeah.
So I was you yesterday.
And I tried to leave you
every memory.
I tried to change things
for you as little as possible.
Although, I did do
a week of your homework.
And I'm amazing at homework.
No need to thank me.
Okay, fine, you're welcome.
I need you to know that
I didn't choose to be you.
I wouldn't choose that,
even if I could.
And in all of my years
I've never woken up
in the body
of someone I care
so much about.
It was the best
and most terrifying day
of my life so far.
You are the only reason why.
Yours, A.
Hey, babe,
what are you doing here?
I think we need
to take a break.
But this stuff between us
is great, our connection.
It's really not.
You don't see me.
I can see you.
You have no idea who I am.
Have a nice life.
Are you kidding?
I woke up feeling clearer than
I ever have in my entire life.
Where are you today?
I wanna see you.
Your hand feels different.
Yours feels the same.
Thanks for not breaking up
with Justin.
Honestly, it was not easy.
My uncle's
in California right now.
He barely uses
this place, anyway.
But I have to be home
by Sunday afternoon
to hang with my mom.
Oh, yeah. Right.
So this is our weekend?
This is our weekend.
Was that just because
I look like this?
It's because you're you.
And ten percent
because you look like that.
So, you actually
remember everything?
Well, it was like
I went to bed Thursday
and woke up today
wearing a really strange bra,
thank you very much.
But with all these memories,
somehow, with you in them.
That must be really weird.
No, it's amazing.
A, I think you should let
people remember you.
I think you should leave
more memories behind
for more people
and make more of a mark.
You're such a bright,
beautiful, kind, funny...
You're not freaked out anymore
that the first time
that we met,
I let you kiss me, and tell me
all this personal stuff
without knowing that...
That I was there?
Well, you must kiss
a lot of people.
And hear a lot
of personal stuff.
Yeah, I...
I've been a lot of boyfriends
and a lot of girlfriends.
How does that not sound
terrible to you?
A, it sounds incredible.
So why midnight?
As far as I can tell,
I get 24 hours in each house.
After that, I get pushed out.
"Pushed out"?
By the person
whose place I'm taking.
When they return,
I don't know,
it's just what it feels like.
What happens
when you push back?
I don't. When it's time
to go, it's not my body.
Look, we just
haven't gotten that far
in AP paranormal biology, yet.
But I think it's being covered
in the spring.
Come on.
So, do you consider yourself
a boy or a girl?
See you tomorrow.
I promise.
You wanna up
and disappear, fine.
You do it on a day
when we're supposed to go
to DC together, rude!
I didn't forget. I just...
You can't expect me
to drop everything
that I'm doing
for this family
to drive for three hours
to pick you up from a vacation
you just up and decided
to give yourself.
Apparently this family's
not the only thing
keeping you busy after work.
Excuse me?
Rhiannon, what the hell
is going on with you?
I just...
You just what?
Nothing. Nothing's wrong.
Michael! I thought you were
already up and showered!
Oh, my goodness!
We are gonna miss our flight!
Hustle your ass, Michael!
Hey! Can you pick me up today?
Mikey! God damn it, Michael!
My family's supposed to
fly to Honolulu today.
If I go,
tomorrow, I wake up as a kid
who's not flying back here.
Silver Springs.
There's a Target
down the highway.
Meet me in the parking lot.
Oh, my God!
This kid does not exercise!
- Michael!
- Shit!
- Hey. Over here!
- Michael! Michael, get...
Get back here!
Okay! Slow down
but don't stop!
I can't hear you!
- Shit! Do stop!
- What?
- Stop!
- Shit! Shit!
- Got it!
- Oh, God.
Jolene's gonna kill me.
- Get back here!
- Go! Go!
Okay, okay.
What are you doing
with my son?
I'm sorry.
Well, had to be done.
Couldn't lose you to Hawaii.
But where were you?
I couldn't come.
Well, I was alone, and cold,
and freaked out!
And if my mom hadn't come,
I don't know
what would've happened.
Not to mention
that she's pissed at me,
and I can't even
begin to explain why!
- I'm sorry!
- Where were you, A?
- Getting a lung transplant.
- Shut up!
I woke up in the evening.
I had no way to call you.
I couldn't contact you. They
wouldn't even give me a phone.
You're serious?
Well, was it successful?
I think so.
Oh, God!
I feel awful
about abandoning you.
No, it was my fault.
The weekend
was my terrible idea.
You think it was
a terrible idea?
What? No.
I mean, it was amazing, too.
I just...
I think we need
to be more careful.
You know,
I thought you'd "left" left.
I'd never leave.
Other than every day.
Do you think
we can keep doing this?
I mean, not knowing
who I'm gonna be
or where I'm gonna
show up next?
I guess I should
probably go clean up
whatever chaos we caused
for this kid.
We'll figure this out.
I promise.
Weird hands?
Less than you'd think.
Jo, I'm really
sorry about the car.
I feel horrible.
Can I tell you
what's happening?
I'm in love with someone
who wakes up in a different
body every day.
Always the same age,
never the same person twice.
Yesterday it was a kid
I needed to save
from his family.
Saturday, it was the guy
in the pickup.
And Sunday, it was someone who
couldn't make it to the cabin.
So, that's what this is.
whatever weird,
fake, role-playing,
polyamorous-type shit
you're into nowadays,
just don't involve me.
Jolene, it's real.
And don't involve
my goddamn car.
Because I'm stupidly nice,
I'll excuse
yesterday's absence.
Can't happen again, Rhiannon.
It won't.
Hey, where'd you go yesterday?
I just didn't feel
like being at school.
Rhiannon, why are you not
telling me anything anymore?
And who is that rando
you hooked up with
- over the weekend?
- What rando?
What are you talking about?
Jolene told her friends
that some guy abandoned you
in the middle of the woods
with no car.
That's, like,
the ultimate rando move.
Why is this
everyone's business?
It's not.
But I figured it's mine
because I'm your friend.
At least I used to be.
Is it you?
I got your message. Wow.
Yeah. I knew
she had some dark thoughts.
Maybe an hour ago
I decided to draw
something cheerful
in one of her notebooks.
Make her feel better.
That's where
she had it written down.
She's got it
all planned out.
If her dad finds her pills,
she's gonna drive into the
side of an overpass.
When does her dad come home?
He doesn't leave the hospital
until 5:00 a.m.
He's in surgery until then.
You've got to stop her.
There's nothing I can do.
You don't believe that.
Call her father!
Call a counselor.
It's Kelsea's life, not mine.
So, if she were gonna
kill someone,
what would you do then?
- I'd turn her in.
- Right!
So how is this different?
It's not fair of me
to do something
that makes up
her mind for her.
So you never,
ever get involved
in the lives of the people
you're inhabiting?
I can't.
What about Justin?
What made that so different?
If you leave her at midnight,
she's going to go
through with it.
So, you're just gonna have to
try and stay.
I believe you can do it.
And I need you
to believe it, too.
Push back.
Stay with me?
You need to get me help, Dad.
I've been thinking about it
for a long time.
Ugh! I'm up, Mom! Jeez.
You feeling okay?
Jo said you told her something
kinda strange.
About meeting someone who's in
a different body every day?
It was a joke.
All right.
I love you, Rhi.
If you ever need to talk,
I'm always here.
Do you still love Mom?
Of course I do, sweetheart.
I don't think we can know
what it's like
when you're in love
with someone
and they change.
Hey, what's up, slut?
Hey, don't shame the slut.
Rhi, I'm proud of you.
Stay slutty.
Shut up, dumbass!
I really missed you yesterday.
I'm sorry about those guys.
It's my fault.
It's nothing.
So tell me everything.
She's got more
appointments tomorrow.
maybe an overnight stay.
Probably she goes
on medication.
I hope it turns out okay.
I mean, I think it could,
but it's her life, so...
It is. And you saved it.
You stayed.
I stayed.
So that means you can stay
in someone else, maybe?
Maybe I could.
What are you doing tonight?
Not with you.
With her boyfriend.
It's their anniversary.
I probably shouldn't miss it.
Well, maybe tomorrow then.
Can I kiss you?
What are you doing up so late?
I thought you had
a test tomorrow.
Mom, I know you and Dad
are trying to make it work.
But every day you can
grow a little bit closer
to each other
or you can grow
a little bit farther apart.
Look, I know Dad
is not who he was.
But you're not
who you were, either.
Because we all change.
And you've changed, too.
please, just grow closer.
He's amazing, Rhiannon.
He's curious and kind,
and handsome.
It's funny,
I've known him for so long,
but I don't know
much about him.
He's so shy at school.
Yeah, he's not the kinda kid
that's built for high school.
He's built for what
comes next.
He remembers
beautiful things beautifully.
He reads and he sees.
And he listens
with every part of himself.
He sees what's funny in people
without ever being cruel.
Excuse me, I'll take this guy
if you don't want him.
Who is he?
He's talking about himself.
So, do you have plans
after school?
It is after school.
What is happening?
Where are we going?
Do you think you could
stay in Alexander
for one more day?
I'm not sure.
You did it with Kelsea.
With Kelsea it was easier,
I think, 'cause
I guess she didn't wanna
be here anymore.
It's fine.
I get it. It's all good.
Would make things easier,
though, wouldn't it?
Oh, my God! You stayed!
That's so exciting!
I knew exactly what it was.
Date night again tonight?
I have to study for a test.
Wow. Okay.
Someone's excited
for learning.
I love you.
I love you, too.
I better get home,
or my mom will kill me.
Should we call it
a night, then?
Actually, I guess I could
come in for a minute.
I think
I should go now.
forgets their own birthday?
Is that the new girl's fault?
Mom, I said I was sorry.
Past few days,
I don't even recognize you.
I don't know if this is some
teenage angst bullshit,
but I won't have it.
Mom, please don't be mad.
I'm not mad.
Your aunts and I
cooked literally all day
preparing that dinner
which was at your request.
All of your favorites.
I'm just disappointed.
That was a shitty,
selfish thing you did.
I'll make it up
to them somehow.
You have a family
that loves you.
Don't take that for granted.
Where have you been?
You weren't in class.
Did you get in trouble?
Not as much
as you might think.
- Oh.
- Rhiannon.
Hey, are we still on
for tonight?
His parents went out of town.
So, my place at 8:00?
Yeah, great.
I'll see you then.
Hey, Rebecca!
TGI Friday.
I've been a bad friend.
I'm sorry.
I'll tell you everything.
I don't need an explanation.
Well, good, because
I'm not really sure
I would give you one
that would make any sense.
Are you and Alexander
a thing now?
I always thought
you should be together.
You did?
I'm glad you're happy, Rhi.
I got practice, so, gotta go.
What is this, the Last Supper?
More like a first date.
Turns out,
he's a really great cook.
He's a really great guy.
Okay. I know.
So are you.
I mean, really great.
I've never had your cooking
so I can't speak to that.
Rhiannon, he's got a family
that loves him,
and that he loves.
It's everything
I've ever wanted.
Yeah. It's been nice.
But it's not mine.
I'm forcing Alexander out of
his own life, and it's wrong.
And the longer I stay,
the more I'm damaging him.
We'll go back to how it was.
Do you know Flynn
in my algebra class?
You cannot, under any
circumstance, be him.
If that's who you wake up in,
then don't even call me.
I mean, it can be Flynn.
It's not a deal-breaker.
I can't do it to anybody.
Not to Alexander,
not to Flynn.
- Not to you.
- What are you saying?
I've been thinking about this
over and over and over.
I'm always going
to be blocking you
from being with someone
who's perfect for you.
How could you say that?
Because Alexander's
perfect for you.
He's your type!
You're my type.
Do you think I wanna
live without you?
Do you think I'll ever be
happy in a place you're not?
Go back to a life
that you're not in,
back to seeing only faces
that aren't yours?
Hearing only voices
that aren't yours?
You should be with him.
He's tall, slim,
nice shoulders.
He's really smart.
He's incredibly kind,
he's interesting,
and thoughtful
on so many levels.
No! We can make it work, A.
I wanna believe that!
You know I wanna believe that.
Think about what happens
if you and I stay together.
I mean, really, truly,
imagine it.
What does that
look like in a year?
In 10 years?
What will happen
to your life
if I'm the person in the world
that you're closest to?
How alone will it make you
if the one
that you love is me?
And the one
that you're with is me.
And you can't tell
anyone about me.
How much is that gonna cut you
off from your family?
How much is that gonna cut you
off from everyone you know?
And what happens
when I start waking up
as someone in a marriage?
Someone with kids?
What if we want a kid?
How will it feel for you
to raise that kid
almost entirely alone
and not be able
to explain to anyone
why that's what you chose?
Whose kid is that gonna be?
Is that gonna be my kid?
Or will she be
the kid of some guy
that you'll never see again
while my kid leaves you
the day after she's born?
Will my kid ever know
her parents?
Or is she gonna have a life
like mine and always wonder...
Most people know
that their first love
won't be their only love.
But for me, you're both.
Say something.
We have three hours
until midnight.
Let's not waste it.
What else?
In some minds,
everything feels
muted and dim.
And in others,
it's like everything is
supercharged and unfocused.
Like a radio flipping
from station to station.
Hard to get control of.
What else?
I'm thinking.
Am I going to see you again?
I have to believe
that we will.
But you have to believe
that we won't.
Where are you
going to go?
Far away.
New York.
Chicago, if I can get there.
Just some big, dense city
where there's lots
of people to be.
There's still some things
I need to figure out
about myself.
Make marks, okay?
Leave traces.
It's time.
Will you remember
this tomorrow?
I'll remember everything.
So will I.
This is the nice note.
Good night.
Good night.
Katie, you up?
Has anyone ever told you
you have a nice smile?
Just being honest.
