Goodbye World (2013) Movie Script

"I went to the woods
"because I wished to
live deliberately,
"and see if I could learn
what it had to teach,
"and not, when I came to die,
discovered that I had not lived."
That's Henry David Thoreau in 1854.
And it made sense to
me 150 years later.
So when you were still
in your mama's belly,
we sold our company,
left our old friends,
and moved here to
Northern California.
You see, I knew the great
collapse was coming.
Everyone says that now, but I knew.
It didn't take much
to tear us apart.
Just a quick ripping away of the
things we'd come to depend on.
Our world was like a
bubble waiting to pop.
And off you go.
There you go.
I had a rough day,
but that's life
It happens
Woke up on the dark
side of my mattress
I guess I forgot
to set my clock
Overslept, almost lost the job
Then to top it off,
I'm kind of hungry
Pick a good one for tonight, okay?
It's in my wallet but my
wallet ain't in my pocket
Great choice, Hannah-bear.
Show your mama.
And they don't want
me in a bad mood
Nice one.
Lily, do you think we
have enough basil inside?
I don't know.
Do you want to check?
I am working on something
important right now.
And the manager
really ain't shit
But I can't quit, so I'm
hiding in the basement
Holding onto to my face
like fuck this place
Every day can't be the best day
Do what you can right
now, don't hesitate
That's why we try to
make love and get paid
Take the bad with the good...
So I just want to know how
awkward it's going to be.
Has he already apologized
in the e-mail?
James doesn't apologize.
Then why are we going?
Well, he might take
some responsibility.
He just never actually says
the words "I'm sorry."
Baby, baby, not when
you're driving.
"Goodbye, world"?
Did you just text me?
Honey, you're holding my phone.
Oh, yeah. Weird.
Hey, what are you doing?
We are on vacation, remember?
We agreed...
we're only talking to each other.
I'mma be so cool
But for now I got cheap
shoes, so I keep losing
Girls give no love
to a poor man
It's a prison, the
clock is warden
And it won't get no
better when I get home
The system tells you three lies.
It tells you that you're free.
You're not.
It tells you that you can change
it from within. You can't.
And if you try to change
it from the outside,
it tells the rest of the world
you're a violent criminal.
The system sent me to
jail for five years
for burning down a factory farm
that was under construction.
Real change isn't
pretty, isn't safe.
But revolution is our
moral obligation,
and the only real expression
of freedom that we have left.
What good is freedom
if you're in jail?
What good is it being out
of jail if you're not free?
Didn't you miss having sex?
Not as much as I miss good coffee.
The better half is
talking about separate
You wish you could take
it back to yesterday
You not alone,
it's hard as hell
But don't waste no time
feeling sorry for self
We'll be right here with
you through your war
Cause you're the one...
Laura Sheppard is not a
name we can have associated
with a non-profit
donor-supported organization.
I can be very effective
behind the scenes.
The right people still
take my phone calls.
your rsum is very,
very impressive.
There are many fields
where your reputation
will not be a handicap for you.
You could make
substantially more money
in the private sector.
Which is exactly the
reason you should hire me.
I'm here because I believe
it's worth fighting for.
I'm sorry.
You know, I find it really funny
that your program director
cheated on his wife
with the teenage babysitter,
yet I'm the one who's unhireable.
He didn't get caught
on camera, honey.
It was a disaster.
What? What do you mean?
Yeah, I know Lev Berkowitz.
- The text message
- "Goodbye, world"
has been received by over
a million cell phones.
And many of those phones
have actually shut down
because of the sheer number of
messages they're receiving.
The source of the virus still
a mystery at this point,
but as you can imagine
authorities now
are looking into it,
hopefully trying to pinpoint
exactly where it's coming from.
When we come back we'll
have our own tech experts
and hopefully shine some
light on the mystery.
Also, we'll have more on
the controversial decision
by the Supreme Court concerning
life sentences for minors.
All of that, plus news updates,
and your weather and
sports when we come back.
Now we're receiving
unconfirmed reports
that the nation is under a
large-scale cyber attack.
I'm told it's suspected
of being connected
to that "Goodbye, world" text.
There have been disruptions
in basic utility service
around the country in some
of the larger urban areas,
including New York,
Chicago, Boston and...
Well, my name, Zaakir,
I'm versatile
And plus I never eat
the cow if ain't Halal
While you rap or bit our
styles in the third degree
Can you turn that down a bit?!
Showcase with the voice
that's oh, so fresh
And I can still serve a
brother in a minute or less
Could you turn it down?
Save my breath
And let my nigga Mark
7even just do the rest
Do the rest...
So do you want to bring
it up or should I?
Either way, but I think it would
help if you apologized first.
And what exactly do you
think I should say?
Uh, I don't know.
How about, "Hey, Nick,
sorry I froze you out of that
company you founded with Lily."
That wasn't a very
friendly thing to do.
He wanted to sell our
user's private information
without their...
I know. Trust me, I know.
I'm just saying this
would go a lot better
if we play nice tonight.
We have all weekend to
talk about the house.
You forgot something.
Hey, hey!
Jesus. You all right?
Someone just blew up
a truck on the 405.
No shit. Really?
Yeah. People are freaking out.
This pump's dead.
Over here.
The pump's dead.
We should go.
No, no, no, no.
Come here. Come here,
you got to see this.
We're already late.
- No, no, no, no. Quick.
- Real quick. Come on.
Come on.
You're going to love it.
I can't believe they're
still doing this.
What? Selling vegetables?
Just literally a box of
cash sitting on a table
by the side of the road.
So, what's to stop
me from taking it?
The Ten Commandments.
I mean in the real world.
Just kidding.
No, no, no. Thou shall not
turn on their cell phone.
Well, you need to call them
to let them know
we're running late.
There's no service here, is there?
Hey, do you have any cash?
We should bring cucumber.
Lily loves cucumbers.
Well, then I'm sure she has some.
Let's go.
You stole that?
I left my sunglasses.
That's a $200 cucumber.
It'll be worth it, I promise.
Hope so, because it certainly
seems important to you
to impress your ex-girlfriend.
It's not like that.
It's an ice-breaker.
She has a really immature
sense of humour, trust me.
Ladies and gentlemen, this
is your captain speaking.
There are some security
concerns right now
at the San Francisco Airport,
so we'll be making an early
landing in Las Vegas.
Once we're on the ground our
staff will do the best they can
to answer all your questions.
Please remain calm and seated
for the duration of the flight.
Is that a cucumber in your pocket
or are you just happy to see me?
Oh, Nicky, it's really
good to see you.
Oh, hey.
Not going to shake your hand.
Good to see you, man.
And it's so nice to
finally meet you.
Oh, um, we've met.
At Stanford.
You guy remember. She was
Laura's freshman year roommate.
That Becky.
You hated me, so it's okay.
No, no.
It's okay.
I liked to study all the
time and go to bed early.
I think it was the
Christian rock...
that made Laura hate you.
We never hated you.
What a relief.
Who's this little munchkin?
Say hi, Hannah-bear.
Hannah, somebody wants to meet you.
He can't breathe.
He's going to die.
No, no, no, no, no.
It's okay.
It's a space bag.
It compresses objects
for easy storage.
Mr. Bear, um, is sleeping,
and he just needs
us to wake him up.
Oh! Oh! Hey!
Wow, he needs a hug.
- Jesus.
- Sounds selfish to me.
Everyone is selfish.
You don't believe in friendship?
That's not what I'm saying.
I'm saying the more
self-sufficient you are,
the more free you are, okay?
Every connection is an
opportunity for compromise.
It's basically death by
a thousand small cuts.
But that's why God put us here.
To make compromises?
To give of ourselves. To make
the world a better place.
You want to make the
world a better place?
Make your world a better place.
Hey, if you hate people so much
how come you asked me to make one?
I don't hate people. You clearly
aren't listening to me.
I think we understand
you perfectly.
Everything's easier if you
get to call the shots.
All right.
Let's talk about it.
We obviously have a lot
of bad blood between us.
Yeah, well, maybe we
have some bad blood
but, you know, it's
not like AIDS blood.
Or hepatitis blood.
Shit, Nicky. That is some
seriously bad blood.
All right, Nicky, you win.
Ebola blood is the worst blood.
All I'm trying to say is that
things would have been better
if Lily and I were able to
convince you outside of court
not to take the company in
the direction you wanted.
Is that a James apology?
No, no, wait, wait, wait.
What's a James apology?
- Come on, dude.
- What is it?
Come on. Have you ever said
"I'm sorry" in your entire life?
Of course.
I'm sorry you feel that way.
No, honey.
Look, you know what?
I hear what you're trying to
say, and I appreciate it.
Thank you.
You know what we need to do?
We need to get smoked-up
and go skinny-dipping
in the hot tub.
Becky, what do you say?
I... I don't know.
I'm tired.
All right, well,
anybody who isn't totally
lame can join me.
They seem so unhappy, don't they?
I'd be unhappy too if I
were married to him.
Do you want an Ambien?
Whatever happened to that guy?
Is he still in jail?
Benji? No.
He got out a few years ago.
James and Lily let him crash here
so he could get back on his feet.
He lives here?
They let him rent the guest house
down at the edge of the property.
God, I'm going to have to
see him too this weekend?
No, no, he travels a lot.
Giving lectures.
I didn't know you
were still in touch.
I see Facebook updates.
It's shitty, isn't it?
Seems like I let everybody go.
Well, I'm glad we're here
so you can finally
get some closure,
but that doesn't mean you
have to keep these people
in your life.
This is your past.
Your present is so much better.
How was it?
It was the relaxation
experience of a lifetime.
And I saw a UFO.
A UFO, huh?
You must be stoked.
Came down really, really close.
And this staircase
of white shot down.
Like a soft rock escalator.
Exactly like a soft rock escalator.
And then Jon Secada appeared,
and he descended into the hot tub.
Also naked?
He wore a majestic thong.
And a cape.
jelly bracelets.
Sounds like I should have come.
They brought their own pillows.
Who does that?
So when you get 10 stars
you get to have a party.
What kind of party?
A unicorn party.
Well, I love unicorn parties.
Can I come?
Uh, you have to be cool.
Hey, Nicky. You want to
go see the greenhouse?
- Oh, my God.
- If we don't act fast,
James will make us go antiquing.
We have to take our destiny
into our own hands
before it's too late.
You may not want to, but you must!
Do it, dude. Do it.
You must.
This is that game, Cosmic Wimpout.
Remember me telling you
how awesome it is?
I want to get you stoned
and feed you pancakes.
What's your Wi-Fi password?
One word, no caps.
But the Internet's been
down since yesterday.
- Roll, roll.
- Yeah, yeah.
I'm going to go again.
Are you ready?
All right, here we go.
Dice out of control.
No. Fringe benefits.
Fine, then reroll clause.
You didn't clear moons, dude.
Yeah, I totally did.
No, you didn't.
Nick, the rules are the rules.
You didn't clear moons.
- Reroll.
- Reroll.
It's time for the daily bubble.
Not now, honey.
Daddy's in the middle
of a Cuban crime wave.
It's time for the daily bubble now!
Every day we make a bubble
and see if we can beat our
record for how long it lasts
before it pops.
Whoa, that's a really big bubble.
One, two, three,
four, five,
That's a record.
Twelve seconds.
That wasn't a very
good bubble, huh?
Uncle Benji!
Hey, little lady.
I just had a really long ride.
Where are you coming from?
Just came from L.A. this morning.
That's Ariel.
Your house is nasty.
Nasty's the new dope.
Hey. Weird to see you here.
Long time, buddy.
Wow. Are you stoned?
There have been serious
improvements in pot since college.
You guys have pot?
So much!
Nick, discretion, please.
Hey. Who's this?
We've met.
Right. Yeah. You're...
You used to hump my
stuffed animals.
Laura's roommate.
Oh, you guys haven't heard.
World's ending.
I'm going to take a nap.
Benji, check this out.
Holy shit. It's crazy.
We should get the
fuck out of here now.
Burn it down!
Back up, back up, back up.
Come on, we don't want
to get stuck in L.A.
This is unbelievable.
All this for a power outage.
No. It's got to be some
sort of coordinated attack.
You should show them Berkeley.
I thought we could at
least sleep there,
but it was way worse than L.A.
Fuck. They're breaking in.
It's going to get ugly.
- Just a second.
- I want to shoot...
Are you fucking serious?
What's wrong with these people?
They're scared and reacting to
a militarized police force.
Or maybe they're just
selfish, lazy products
of an entitlement society?
Nick, your wife's a Republican.
Mm-mm. Libertarian.
Okay, so you believe
in taking health
care away from kids
and food stamps from hungry people?
I am probably the only person
here who's been on food stamps,
so I get to have an opinion.
I just don't get why people
are going so crazy so fast.
Whoever is behind this is also
planting bombs in semi trucks,
which means that shipments
in and out of cities
are at a standstill.
So people are...
They're panicking.
Can we please get some
real information here?
Well, our TV only plays DVDs,
but we could check the radio.
The local station
Scattered reports
via the ham radio:
at least seven individuals
in Oakland have been shot
by private security companies
operating under orders
from their corporate overlords.
See what I mean?
Commercial districts
are being locked down.
We're not going to see food
moving from port to store.
Distribution pathways are the
arteries of this country,
and we've just had
a cardiac arrest.
Continuity of operation's
plan is initiated, folks.
The Pentagon has moved...
All right, all right. Okay.
Hey, turn it back on.
Why? So you can get upset
about some false information?
I'm calling my mother.
Don't call her in a panic.
You're only going to scare her.
It's 1:00 a.m. in Miami.
All circuits are busy.
We have to go.
Okay. Now?
Yeah, now.
Can we just all calm down, please?
We'll wake up tomorrow
and everything will
be back to normal.
Uh, Lily, no disrespect,
but you don't know what the
fuck you're talking about.
Neither do you.
None of us do.
This is only going to escalate.
The system was rotten,
and now it's crumbling.
Benjamin, this is not
a goddamn apocalypse.
And even if it is,
didn't we all say this
would be the perfect place
to ride it out?
I've moved to this mall,
and I'm running out
of gas on the genny.
When that goes, I'll
be off the air.
No disparity.
Corporate nation states.
The Occupiers, the Tea Party,
all just canaries in the coal mine.
Somebody out there lit a match,
and now the fire
cannot be contained.
Thank you.
Are you okay?
Am I dead?
Did you walk all the way here?
Lev, look at me.
You're dehydrated.
Listen, let's just walk this way
and get off the main road, okay?
Get you some water.
A doctor, maybe.
Oh, shit.
Not the greeting I was hoping for.
If you're here then whatever's
going on is serious.
Hey, Lev.
I ran into him on the road.
He's either dehydrated or on drugs.
All right, let's get him inside.
Laura Sheppard.
Becky Snider.
How are you?
Where are you going?
They can't all be closed.
They are.
Maybe we should wait.
Just fill the tank, please.
It's a waste of gas.
We're staying.
Hey, we should go in the
house and get some water.
Lily's going to be so
excited to see you.
I like this vest.
Hey, if there's a store
nearby we should go now.
You don't want to say hi first?
No. This is more important.
You must have been told
something early on.
You never would have made it
all the way across the country
before the airports closed.
I happened to be on my
way to San Francisco.
What, are you kidding me?
I got a call from an old
friend in Homeland Security.
My name came up on a
background check for Lev.
Lev? For what?
Apparently a virus took advantage
of existing pathways
and network systems.
They're probably
looking for hackers.
And you told them they got
the wrong guy, right?
I didn't tell them anything.
Do they know you're here?
Do they know where we are?
And you actually think
Lev is a terrorist?
I haven't seen him since
your wedding, James.
I don't know what I think.
You know Lily hacks, right?
She and Lev have some
online pissing contest,
you're going to turn her in?
I'm not turning anyone in.
Let's go.
What if someone sees
you taking a bath?
Who's going to see?
I don't know.
A wandering woodsman.
Lev, check this out.
Here you sit in a tub
of infinite bubbles.
A T.I.B., naturally.
We'll definite integers
as degrees of infinity.
Whoa, Lily. You can't
have degrees of infinity.
Why not?
Because it's infinity.
Oh, don't sass me, hacker,
'cause I'm the math-smacker.
Gonna freestyle flow like
a salty lady cracker.
Are you going to sit there or
are you gonna beatbox for me?
Welcome to Lemon's Market.
Hey, James.
Hey, Donny.
Oh, no. We are not going to
poison ourselves with mercury.
We've got plenty of canned
goods in storage at the house.
Lower your voice.
There's nothing but crap here.
Are those necessary?
Dude, civilization depends on it.
That'll be 1,600.
I'll give you 300.
Suck a cunt.
It's all I have.
What do you got that I want?
Gold watch...
plus a booby show.
I can't believe you did that.
It's no big deal.
The whole world's seen my tits.
Hey! Give me my shit back!
Hey, hey, toss it over here.
Get in. Get in.
I thought you guys were leaving.
We decided to wait.
Is there anything to eat?
I just want something quick.
Thank you.
So, you and Nick.
Guess that makes sense.
You guess?
You know, I never got
a wedding invitation.
You were in prison.
Nick knew I was in prison?
That's funny.
Never came to visit me.
Well, as far as I know he never
got an invitation either.
Gosh, what a bitch.
No, she's right.
Did you hear what
happened at the market?
Heard the sheriff was
run out of town too.
Are you worried?
Nah. We live so far up the hill.
You're up even further.
There's no reason for
anyone to come up this way.
We trapped a few wild
pigs, if you want one.
You have to butcher it.
Well, not this time. We'd love
some more of that applesauce.
That'll be $30 even.
I'll put it on your tab.
That's what you normally charge.
It's worth more now.
I'm not going to take advantage.
Thanks, Trisha.
Try bringing it back.
- Like this?
- Back more.
Move back.
Daily bubble.
Daily bubble.
Daily bubble.
Yeah, in a minute, sweetheart.
Mama's having a very
important beer.
Oh, wait, don't move.
Hey, guys, that's the President.
That's the President?
Emergency teams are on the ground
working to help control the chaos.
This is a serious time,
but we are a serious people.
We will find those responsible
and bring them to justice.
Are taking every action to
protect our citizens...
Daily bubble.
We can overcome this tragedy
and rise again as the
great hope of the world.
God bless you, and
God bless America.
How are we even getting this?
I thought TV went digital.
Not all the way out here.
Daily bubble!
All right, fruit of my loins.
We'll do the daily bubble.
Come on.
No. Daddy.
I am the inventor of
the daily bubble.
Daddy stole that from me.
He did.
She wants you again.
It's a phase.
She'll get over it.
James still vying for
father of the year?
Fourth year running.
Oh, I am so glad you're here.
Now let's get drunk and
make fun of people.
I always liked it down here.
I wish I could live here.
Dude, it's a shack.
I thought your place was huge.
We spend all our time
decorating and redecorating.
I don't even use 90% of the rooms.
You still haven't figured it out.
What you want out of life.
You still having
those panic attacks?
Haven't had one in years.
That's good.
Till two days ago.
It's really weird coming up here.
It's like going back in time.
I just keep thinking
about everything.
And it's really strange
seeing Lily again.
Come on. Wake up.
What are you doing?
I am trying to wake
you the fuck up.
Stop hitting me.
You need to make
decisions, take action,
live with the consequences...
Okay! Stop hitting me!
All right. All right.
Maybe. Yes!
One, two, three.
Another one.
Only one a day,
or it's not special.
Let's go look for
fairies in the forest.
Yeah, I saw one this morning.
Maybe if we're lucky
we'll find her.
Stay within view of the house.
No problem.
Lev, buddy, are you a terrorist?
I don't think so.
You can't go commando if
you're borrowing my pants.
There has to be some
kind of barrier.
I do not share underwear.
They're perfectly washed.
Yes, but the memories remain.
Laura, can I talk to
you for a second?
Hey, do-not-disturb zone, James.
She's my friend.
He said please.
If we ration this it
should last quite a while.
We're in the middle
of a growing season,
so we should have plenty
of fresh vegetables.
But I think we should only
eat half of what we grow,
and then preserve the rest.
Oh, what's that?
EpiPens, amoxicillin,
tetracycline, erythromycin.
Jesus, I had no idea you
were such a survivalist.
I buy in bulk.
I think the medical fridge
is kind of crossing
the prepper line.
I started an emergency checklist,
if you want to go over it with me.
Okay, you are aware of the fact
that I'm drunk right now, right?
We can do this later.
By the way, I asked Lev
if he's a terrorist.
We're in the clear.
What do you mean you asked him?
I caught him off guard and
carefully gauged his reaction.
James, you're a fucking idiot.
Okay, all right.
Uh, we're going to
go back in there,
and you are going to ask
me the exact same thing
in front of him.
Laura, trust me.
You don't have to worry about Lev.
Either we're going
to do this my way
or I am calling the authorities.
With what?
Your Bat Phone?
Don't test me.
- That was good.
- Laura.
Now I'm kind of
worked a little bit.
Are you a terrorist?
No. Can you pass the rolls?
Anyone here? Anyone engage any
illegal or treasonous activity?
Dude, what the fuck are
you talking about?
I have to ask.
It's for insurance.
Good. Could you pass the wine?
God, James, you've
become so paranoid.
We found out today that the
cops got run out of town.
What does that mean?
It means that we should talk
about ways to secure the house.
Oh, I can build a security system.
You guys got a baby monitor or a
cell phone or remote control?
Shouldn't be a problem then.
We should also talk
about rationing.
- He's kind of right, Lily.
- Come on, you guys.
This is the first time we've
all been together in what?
Like eight years?
I propose we table all serious
apocalypse talk until tomorrow.
All in favour?
Anyone else?
All in favour?
All opposed?
Lame. Lev?
You're dead to me.
Becky, what say you?
Um, I don't care.
That's an abstention.
Four to three.
Victory. Mandatory
libations and celebration.
- To democracy.
- To democracy.
All right, and onto the
next order of business,
I propose that we all
go around the table
and everybody say the one thing
they will miss the most
about the old world.
Benji, you start.
I don't know.
I got nothing.
You're ruining the game and
we haven't even started.
I know what Benji will miss.
Oh, shit.
Oh, fuck.
I'm guilty of that.
What a hypocrite.
Laura, what about you?
I will miss history.
What kind of bullshit
answer is that?
All right. Every Fourth of
July I go to Mount Vernon
to re-enact the Revolutionary War.
It is one of the
highlights of my year,
and I'm allowed to miss it.
Don't judge me.
What happens at these
Well, I play George Washington.
You play an old, dead white dude?
Who led the American Revolution.
No big deal.
Just the most coveted role,
which I have won
five years running.
Forensics? Hollah!
Oh! Ready?
One, two, three.
We're a set. What?
A set. What?
Count it out.
Three. Mathletes.
You're still really,
really good at that.
Okay, I'm going to miss YouTube,
because now there's, like, zero
chance I'll ever be famous.
That's probably a good thing.
Well, I was planning
on getting famous
for my talent, not for
fucking married senators.
Whoo! Senator, singular.
And I got 20 million
hits, so suck it.
I'm really going to miss NASA.
You got a secret plan
to be an astronaut?
No, James, but that doesn't
mean I wasn't inspired by it.
No, I know what you're
really going to miss.
Oh, yeah?
Please enlighten me.
You're on it every day watching
kittens wrestle with puppies.
That sounds very dangerous.
Why would they do that?
You know me so well.
Becky, what about you?
Um, I guess if I had to pick
one thing, it would be...
What'd I say?
I love it.
Are you fucking serious?
To volunteering.
- To volunteering.
What's your name, little lady?
Can I help you?
We're with the National Guard
Regional Support Group.
We're here to gather information
on who's in the area,
see what resources are needed.
How did you get past the gate?
Good-looking horses.
They look a lot like
our neighbour's.
Our Humvee busted so
we borrowed them.
Kyle here nearly got thrown off.
Tried to ride it like I seen
in the movies, but it spooked.
You asked before
taking them, right?
That's what borrowing
mean, don't it?
It's a really nice
setup you have here.
Definitely better than the other
houses we visited so far.
You know, this would be a good
place for us to set up base.
Canvas the area.
I mean, we're fine to
crash on the couch.
Whatever's available.
They're just trying to help.
They need information
to allocate resources.
Right. That's why they need
my social security number.
I'm with Benji.
Fuck the Man.
And what are you guys going to do?
They have guns.
They're supposed to
have guns, Lily.
They're soldiers.
I don't know, man.
They really creep me out.
We have a gun.
Jesus Christ.
Why do you have that?
I found it.
It's loaded.
Fucking A.
I can't believe you brought
a loaded gun into my house.
I'm sorry.
Look, I don't think we
have any other choice
but to cooperate with these guys.
This is my home, not
a military base.
They need a place to stay.
It's not going to happen.
Well, I think we should
put it to a vote.
It's not up for debate.
All in favour, raise your hand.
They can't force us to
let them stay here.
Unless Congress has declared
war and passed a resolution
requiring quarter,
in which is unlikely
given how quickly
everything has happened.
Third Amendment.
The Constitution is the
bedrock of our freedoms.
You really should be
more familiar with it.
We are not going to be
able to let you stay here.
Uh, we're on official orders.
If we want to stay, we'll stay.
You ever hear of a little thing
called the Constitution?
"No soldier shall,
in time of peace,
"be quartered in any house
without the consent
"of the owner, nor in time of war,
"but in a manner to be
prescribed by law."
I'm a soldier. My orders come
from the Commander-in-Chief.
Actually, this is under the
jurisdiction of Congress.
Kyle, why don't you go ahead
and take a look around inside
while I get everybody's ID?
The right of the people to be
secure in their person's houses
papers and effects
against unreasonable
searches and seizures
shall not be violated.
I brought you snacks for the road.
This is your house, right?
So that's your pretty little
wife and daughter we met earlier?
That's right.
So who are these people?
They're my guests.
So we're not good enough
to be your guests.
I didn't say that.
Of course you didn't.
Thank you for your hospitality.
Come on, Kyle. Let's go.
Okay, so we take the photodiode
from the remote control,
we use the OneTouch
on the cell phone,
run it through the baby monitor.
And you have a security system.
Where'd you learn how to do this?
I did some research
on motion sensors
when I was working in Lebanon.
As a programmer?
A private consultant.
Doing what?
It's private.
I'm mostly just
plugged in computers.
Okay, water's pumped
from the well over here
into that tank over there.
Everything's powered
by the solar panel.
If the pump doesn't break
and the filter lasts,
we should be okay for
a couple of years.
Nick, it's important
someone else knows this
in case something happens to me.
What is going to happen to you?
I have a daughter.
Making sure she's taken care
of means something to me.
What about Lily?
What about her?
Hey, the President's on again.
Americans stand together
and reach out a helping hand.
I want to assure you that the
government is operating,
and full continuity of
service will resume soon.
My first priority is
dealing with those areas
most immediate.
Emergency teams are on the ground
working to help control the chaos.
This is a serious time,
but we are a serious people.
Make no mistake...
That's what he said last time.
We'll find those responsible
and bring them to justice.
It's a fucking loop.
It's worse than that.
This is a pre-recorded generic
post-catastrophic event message.
"We are a serious people."
That's code to communicate
to certain parties
that martial law is in effect.
What parties?
Any operatives who
may be unreachable
through standard
communication protocol.
Senator Reese was a senior member
of the Homeland Security Committee.
I read every brief.
I was his closest advisor.
Trust me, this is for real.
I loved him.
The senator.
He love you back?
He said he did.
I don't know.
Maybe not.
Men aren't very nice to me.
Yeah, well, maybe that's because
they think they don't have to.
You're very tough.
Am I?
You challenged the dean of
the law school to a debate,
and won.
I did do that, didn't I?
I'm not saying you have to change.
I'm just thinking maybe
you should find a guy
that's more like a girl.
Jesus Christ, Benji.
That is terrible advice.
You know I'm right, though.
God, what do you think's
happening down there?
Nothing good.
Then why aren't we doing anything?
Benji, I need you in the cabin.
What's up?
I'm high.
I want to fuck.
It's the end of the world...
Yeah. case you hadn't noticed.
Yeah, I noticed.
So I'm preoccupied.
Oh, okay. So you're too preoccupied
with the collapse of civilization
to fuck me right now?
Yeah, and people's lives
are at stake out there.
People are the problem.
It doesn't mean we shouldn't
care when people get hurt.
People brought this on themselves.
It's way more
complicated than that.
I thought you were a
real revolutionary.
Guess I was wrong.
What the fuck is that
supposed to mean?
You're all talk.
Everyone likes to make speeches,
but at the end of the day
they're all just selling
something, aren't they?
What were you selling, Benji?
Benji, you all right?
Hey, it's time for dinner.
Are you okay?
He said I have to leave.
Where am I supposed to go?
You can stay as long as you need.
Yeah, you can stay at the house.
Thank you.
You're so amazing.
And you take care of everybody.
I'll see you up there.
So you need to put a lot
of pressure on the rock
to keep the drill
straight up and down.
And then you use your shin
to stabilize your left hand.
I was an Eagle Scout.
Isn't that just for boys?
My dad was a troop leader.
I'm on the books as
Lawrence Sheppard.
See? Told you.
Laura's magic.
I'm going to go get
some more firewood.
You catch any more wild pigs?
No, but Mitch set some small
traps for rabbits and such.
It's kind of late to
be out wandering.
Our place is just a straight
shot down the hill.
James or Lily around?
We've been keeping our heads down.
It's been rough for folks
at outlying farms.
We thought it was best to circle
the wagons down at her place.
- That's a good idea.
- Reason we come up,
the biker gangs on their way
out of town raided the clinic.
We got someone who come
down with an infection,
so we're collecting
leftover medicines.
Yeah. We don't really keep that
kind of stuff laying around.
Mention it to Lily, if you would.
I heard Trisha was here.
Yeah, she came by last night.
What did she want?
Nothing much.
There were some people down there
setting up camp at her place.
How many people?
She didn't say.
Well, should we invite
some of them up here?
Right. That's all we need.
More people to take care of.
Well, if they need help.
- Nick, we can handle this.
- Just saying.
I mean, maybe I should have
some say in the matter.
Yeah? And why is that?
Oh, you know, because of the
property and everything.
What are you talking about?
You never told her?
What haven't you told me?
Uh, it's not a big deal.
It's just that, um, officially
I co-own the house with Lily.
That's not how I would put it.
Wait a second.
Lily's mom passed when
we were in college.
The taxes were piling up
and she was going to
have to sell the house.
We were engaged.
- You guys were engaged?
- Yeah, but it wasn't real.
She broke up with
him a month later.
Why would you keep that from me?
It doesn't matter, because
Nick isn't really
an owner in the house
so much as an investor.
That's the same argument you used
to gain control of the
business, isn't it?
No, it's not the same thing,
because Nick specifically
violated our ethics code
when he tried to sell
users' private data.
And that's exactly what
made the company valuable
when you eventually sold it.
You shared in that profit
per the settlement.
So did you!
Hey, guys...
And what they chose to do with
the company after we sold it
is on their heads, not mine.
Wow, you're a real piece of work.
We're ready to buy you out.
I already have a cashier's cheque
cut for half the current appraisal.
Is that why you invited us here.
No, it's not.
Actually, yes.
In part.
And why should we
trust your appraisal?
I had three separate appraisals
done and I chose the highest.
I could have averaged them.
And is the land on that
hill out front farmable?
If terraced, yeah.
And you've got a dedicated
well, and solar power.
Becky, I'm talking to Nick.
We're in the middle
of an apocalypse.
The property value is going
to shoot through the roof.
I make the same mistakes
Feels like I never learn
Always give way too much
For little in return
I haven't changed a bit
I'm still not over it
I make the same mistakes
I make the same mistakes
I never did grow up
Feels like I never will
My friends are all adults
I'm still a teenage girl
I haven't changed a bit
Having you up here this weekend
really wasn't about the house.
At least not for me.
I make the same mistakes
I really missed you.
I missed you.
They think I'm such a flake
They want to go to bed
I want to stay up late
Oh, no.
I'm so sorry.
I'm so sorry.
It's okay.
No, no. It's okay.
I'm sorry. No, I'm sorry.
I am.
Can I just say something?
What is set is set.
There's a reason that
all this happened.
I know we're supposed
to be together.
James doesn't appreciate you.
I don't want to talk about James.
I make the same mistakes
I make the same mistakes
Where are you?
Have you seen Nick?
Did he give you a ring?
What, just now?
When you were engaged.
Oh. Yeah.
Um, it was his grandmother's.
But I gave it back.
you're really lucky to have him.
He's kind and he's loving.
And he listens.
James fell out of love with me
when he fell in love with Hannah.
He wouldn't even
notice if I was gone.
I'm sure that's not true.
I really don't belong here.
You know, it's your home.
You can make it whatever
you want it to be.
Why don't you come inside.
I think Laura and Lev
have a surprise for us.
The time is now near at hand,
which must probably determine
whether Americans will
be free men or slaves.
The fate of unborn millions
will now depend under God
on the courage and
conduct of this army.
Our cruel and unrelenting enemy
leaves us only the choice
of brave resistance,
or the most abject submission.
We must therefore resolve
whether to conquer or die!
Yes! Yes!
Hear, hear.
Here's another one.
Two guys walk into a bar.
The first guy asks for H2O.
The second guy says,
"That sounds good.
I'll have H2O too."
The second guy died.
I know I'm not the only
one who didn't get that.
Okay, I'll be reciting
a poem that I wrote,
called "All the Little Animals."
And it's about how nicely we
should treat animals, Hannah.
All the little animals
sitting in a row.
They have paw and claw,
we have foot and toe.
On the outside they seem so
different from you and from me.
But on the inside,
they're the same as us.
Can't you see?
They want to be held
and loved so much.
Just like the Canadians,
the Chinese and the Dutch.
And is this your card?
- It's not?
- No.
It's that?
Oh, wow. Is that your card?
Thank you very much.
Thank you very much.
All right, how did you do it?
Real magicians never tell.
But you're not a real
magician, so how'd you do it?
You know, I don't understand
why people like magic.
I mean, if I knew how it
worked it'd be interesting,
but now it's just annoying.
Wobbledy, wobbledy, wow-wobble
I'm sta-stacking my papers
My wallet look like a Bible
I got girlies half naked
That shit look like the Grotto
How your waist anorexic
And then your ass is colossal
All right, all right,
all right, all right.
Stop murdering the song, okay?
Lily, some of us
were enjoying that.
Yeah, well, I am going to
rock it old-school style.
And then y'all will find out
what hip-hop is really about.
Give me a topic.
- Banana slugs.
- Don't be ridiculous.
Life in the ghetto.
What, what, yeah
What, what, yeah
Old school is for losers.
Excuse me, what?
Just kidding around, Snoop Dogg.
You are not allowed to teach
my daughter about hip-hop.
I'm sorry she doesn't like you,
but don't take it out on me.
What is your problem?
I got 99 problems, but
a bitch ain't one.
Call me a bitch again.
Ariel, just give it a rest.
Seriously, call me a bitch again.
Ariel, maybe you should
step outside for a bit.
Maybe she should step outside.
Maybe we should both step outside.
Lily, enough.
What, you're defending her now?
He's hoping I'll suck his cock.
Get the fuck out of my house.
You all think you're so
advanced and intellectual.
Well, I have news for you.
You're fucking weak.
And boring.
She's just a stupid kid.
I don't want her around Hannah.
We have pot!
What? I'm bringing bush back.
You sure are.
Full bush, no shame.
Aren't you freezing?
I am a firm believer
in the clean look.
Shit, I don't know how I feel
about being so middle of the road.
Waxing is so sexist.
I mean, does Nick wax?
Of course.
You're kidding me.
Don't knock it till you try it.
It's more aerodynamic.
But doesn't the penis look lonely?
No. It's regal.
It's very Prince William.
Does he wax his balls too?
Can you wax a ball?
So delicate.
I think you can wax a ball.
You can wax a ball.
Wait, hang on. Does hair grown
directly from the balls?
Or is it just encased in a
bed of surrounding hair?
That's a good question.
Do your balls grow hair
directly from them,
or are they more like encased
in a bed of surrounding hair?
Seriously, James, we
really need to know.
So I kissed Lily.
I took your advice.
I went for it.
I was telling you to be
honest with yourself.
I wasn't telling you to
sabotage a marriage.
You told me to do this.
No, this is not my fault.
You know what?
You're right.
Why should I take advice from you?
I mean, are you really deciding
what you want and going for it?
You're a loser who
lives in a shack.
You never had an adult
relationship in your life.
I went to prison for
going for it, all right?
So don't sit here and tell me...
You set some shit on fire
a long fucking time ago.
It was childish and stupid.
Is that all you want?
Good night, then.
What are you doing?
Don't worry.
I'm not a snitch.
You have got to stop
acting like a child.
What? We're not allowed to have
any fun in the apocalypse?
Do you realize how dire our
situation is right now?
I'm trying to hold us
together for Hannah's sake.
A stellar job so far.
Aces, really.
You're embarrassing yourself.
And you're embarrassing me.
I want a divorce.
What? You've got nothing to say.
How do you want me to respond?
I'm dealing with real problems.
And our marriage isn't
a real problem?
Not compared to our survival, no.
We got soldiers at our farm now.
Those guys?
Yeah, well, they offered protection
and enough people felt
like we needed it.
They eat our food, don't pitch in,
move up on some of the girls.
Mitch stood up to them
and they locked him in
the shed overnight.
The main one, Damon,
he's been talking about you,
and this solar-powered
castle up here.
People are starting to listen.
They don't like this
house full of outsiders.
We've been here for years.
They sent me up here to ask
nicely for the medicine.
Or else.
What medicine?
That girl, Ariel, she's
staying with us now.
She told us about your storeroom.
I understand your request.
You should have helped me
out the first time I asked.
Things would be different now.
I say we hand over the medicine.
Can't there be some middle ground?
No. We cannot start giving
into their threats.
Can't we just give them half?
We are going to need that medicine.
The medicine is not
the fucking issue.
The issue is they need help
kicking out those soldiers
before it gets worse down there.
They're armed. What do you
want to do, start a war?
We didn't start it.
Yeah, but we can't finish it.
Where are you going?
I need to think.
Son of a bitch.
You guys, has anybody
seen Hannah's bear?
Hey, the phones are working again.
No, it's the security system.
Somebody's in the storage shed.
Now, when she told me
about all the good shit
you were hoarding up here, I
honestly thought she was lying.
I mean, I said the guy
was a selfish prick,
but that is just over the line.
Put the frying pan down, son.
That's a filter for the well.
We're happy to share drinking
water with you guys.
Iodine crystals.
Are you cooking meth
down there, Donny?
You know what kind of
people that attracts?
Don't pretend you give a shit.
Hey, Damon, that's the bitch
from the senator's sex video.
I'll be damned. It's her.
I told you.
Hey, Kyle.
Kyle, come.
Go on and tell her how you
used to jerk off to her.
Do you want to die?!
Do not fucking move!
Homebody pissed his fucking pants.
Why don't you go on inside
and unlock the fridge.
Don't make me ask twice.
Just so you know, this particular
unit has a microprocessor
that keeps them as reliable cold
at negative 20 degrees Celsius.
Automatic evaporation
tempered thermopane glass
and an air-cooled
condensing unit.
Every day outside this fridge
will reduce their potency,
and therefore their street value.
Do me a favour.
Box up some of this nice food
when you bring the
fridge down tomorrow.
And I mean all of it.
I got something to say
that'll cheer everyone up.
I was going to shoot myself in
the head before I came here.
- Lev?
- No.
It's okay. It's funny,
because it turns out
I'm terrified of getting
shot in my head.
Why would you want to do that?
It seemed like the right
thing to do at the time.
But then I heard about the attacks.
And the power went out.
I don't know.
I just felt like killing myself
would be potentially redundant.
So I went outside and
walked around for a bit,
and when I came back home there
were FBI agents everywhere.
Why were there FBI agents
at your apartment, Lev?
Well, it turns out
I might be responsible
for this whole thing.
What whole thing?
This collapse-of-civilization
What did you do?
I said goodbye to everyone at once.
You sent the text.
And the virus that took
down the power grid.
No. See, here's the thing.
Last year I was hired
to write a kind of super
spam for Smartphones.
The idea was to be able to
hijack the target's address book
and send a single text
message to every contact.
Embedded with a virus that
we spent months planting
in the most popular apps.
Why would you agree to do that?
Because it's completely
I mean, the goal was
to send a text message
to every phone on earth,
which could be cool.
Or not.
And I started to suspect not.
So I quit before I finished.
But then someone
hacked my computer,
and they must have been
watching when I said goodbye,
because they got that trigger code
that they were going to send.
And probably used it to detonate
that attack on the power grid.
I was just playing around.
I hacked into Lev's
computer as a joke,
just to see if I could do it.
You're Mr. E?
Mr. E. Mystery.
Get it?
It's funny, right?
I didn't do anything, though.
You opened a very locked,
very secured door.
Some very bad people
walked through it.
Just let me...
Let me get this straight.
You two idiots destroyed the world?
Well, we don't know that for sure.
It could just be this country.
Are they coming for me?
I don't think they're
coming for any of us.
The government's big,
but it's finite.
They'll lock down
cities if they can,
protect our resources,
But places like this,
we're on our own.
At least for a while.
You could turn me in, you know.
Find a place in the new government.
Get taken seriously again.
Even if you're not responsible
it won't go well for you.
So, what are you going to do?
I don't know.
That's a real dilemma.
We should do a speech test.
What is that?
Basically what it is is you say
both possible options out loud,
and whichever one sounds the
most authentic, you go with it.
I'm going to turn you in at the
first possible opportunity.
How'd that feel?
I don't know, Lev.
Pretty authentic.
What are you doing
with an animal trap?
Just twiddling my thumbs
so they don't fall off.
We have to take this
off right away.
Okay, hold still.
That's okay.
Oh, the spring is stuck.
Do you have a screwdriver?
I got a knife in my pocket.
Why didn't you come up for help?
Just didn't really feel
like talking to anybody.
This should do it.
My God.
Thank you.
That is the type of
shit people invent.
I really don't understand
how it's possible
not to hate every single
fucking one of us.
Before my father left us,
he taught me how to
set squirrel traps.
And sometimes we'd get lucky
and we'd get a rabbit.
And I was always the one
who had to kill it,
because my mom was never there,
and I wasn't going to make my
sisters do anything like that.
So I'd take a rock and
bash its head in.
Why did you just tell me that?
Because I believe in hell.
And I know evil exists.
I mean, I've...
But I also know that good
is stronger than evil.
Which is why I survived.
I got to tell you something.
Is there anything you
want to tell me?
I don't think so.
You should just say it.
I don't...
I don't know what...
If you still loved her
why did you marry me?
Is that why we're here?
You thought you had
another chance with her?
So you kissed her.
And now?
You promised me.
You promised God.
Don't touch me.
Don't you ever touch me again.
It's perfectly clear that
none of you liked me then,
and none of you like me now.
Nick, you have to go.
I don't want to see you here.
I don't want you
around my daughter,
and I don't want you
around my wife.
Actually, James, I
think you need to go.
Nick, don't.
You want him or you want me?
You wanted a divorce.
You're clearly running
around with Nick.
So you get what you want.
But you don't get the house.
Don't be here when I get back.
Where's the fridge, asshole?
Hey, I'm talking to you!
I'm here to talk to my neighbours.
Oh, so now we're your neighbours.
Yeah. When did it
start becoming okay
to steal and threaten each other?
No one stole shit from you, dude.
Yesterday your soldier
buddies came into my house
and took some wine and chocolate.
Fuck you, man.
We're eating Spam down here.
Whatever you've got to say,
James, you better say it fast.
If I give you our medicine,
what's to stop these guys
from selling it?
And using it to control you?
Anybody who is sick can
come up to my house
and you will be given care.
So you get to decide to
who gets the medicine
and who doesn't?
I stocked up on that stuff.
I get a little say
on how it's used.
Sounds like death kennels.
That's not what I'm saying.
My point is that if we...
What's your point?
This man is a criminal.
He didn't help our
friend Donny over here
when he was being robbed.
He just drove off.
He put us all at risk
storing away his medicine.
This is the kind of person
I've been talking about.
People who take advantage.
It is time that we
send a clear message.
That we are not going to bow.
To people of this type anymore.
No. no, please.
Please don't do this. I'm...
The time is now near at hand...
That must probably determine
whether Americans will be free men
or slaves.
The fate of unborn millions
will now depend under God
on the courage and
conduct of this army.
We must therefore resolve
to conquer or die.
What the fuck are you talking
about? Conquer who?
The enemy is us.
Each moment is an agreement.
An agreement to live in a
certain kind of world,
which is the way it's always been.
We've just pretended
like it wasn't.
This is half of our medicine.
From now on we work together.
Thank you.
I just killed somebody!
James, I just killed somebody!
I just killed somebody!
You just saved my life.
You saved my life.
Thank you.
You're welcome.
I love you, Hannah-bear.
Where's Lily?
We need to find a place
to camp before nightfall.
We can't go back.
I have to, Nick.
Because of Hannah?
And because of James.
Nick, come back.
I have always been there for you!
When you wanted to start a
company I found the money.
When you were going to lose
the house I stepped in.
When have you ever
been there for me?
You don't get to have it both ways.
You don't get to
break my heart again
and still be my friend.
You really feel like
that's what's happened?
That's bullshit!
You want what you want,
and you're not willing to
see what's in front of you,
which is a good fucking friend.
I love you.
As what? As...
As a friend?
That's bullshit.
It's not bullshit.
It's real.
Come on.
I don't like myself
very much anymore.
Goodbye, bear.
Goodbye, Nick.
Goodbye, world.
She asked me where you were.
And I couldn't answer.
I'm sorry.
Me too.
Do you think...
Do you think you could just
say that one more time,
just for the novelty of it?
I'm sorry.
I'm so sorry.
Say it again.
I'm sorry.
I'm so...
Thank you for telling me.
I don't feel good about it.
I don't think it's snitching
if you're doing it to keep
someone from getting hurt.
Where are you going?
I don't know.
But there's someone out
there that needs help.
And I can't stay here
knowing that they're hoping
for someone to come.
Like the way you came for me.
No justice.
Just us, right?
I don't want to say goodbye to you.
So don't.
Are you sure you can
handle a convicted felon?
You sure you can
handle a grown woman?
Only one way to find out.
The daily bubble!
It's time for you-know-what.
You want to do the honours?
One, two,
three, four, five,
six, seven, eight,
nine, ten, eleven,
Sleep don't visit
So I choke on sun
And the days blur into one
Backs of my eyes
Hum with things I've never done
Sheets are swaying
From an old clothesline
Like a row of captured ghosts
Over old dead grass
Was never much, but
we've made the most
Welcome home
Ships are launching
From my chest
Some have names but most do not
If you find one,
please let me know
What piece I've lost
Peel the scars
From off my back
I don't need them anymore
You can throw them out
Or keep them in your mason jars
I've come home
All my nightmares
Escape my head
Bar the door
Please don't let them in
You were never
Supposed to leave
Now my head's splitting
At the seams
And I don't know
