For All Mankind (2019) s02e08 Episode Script

And Here's to You

There's been no sign
of a Russian countermove
on the lunar surface, sir.

We have two-man teams
guarding the site around the clock.

Soviet activity around Zvezda
is proceeding normally.

There's also been no increase
in military activity in Earth's orbit.

Then I'd say our little
operation was a success.

Yes, sir.
It sure looks that way.

Please relay my personal thanks
to everyone at NASA on a job well done.

Thank you, sir.
I will.

Mr.
President, if I may?
There's still the matter
of the Apollo-Soyuz mission.

What do you think, Ellen? Should
we proceed or cancel the mission?
We still have the moral high ground
after the shoot down of KAL 7.

I think we should keep it.

We've extended our hand in
friendship for all the world to see.

If Andropov wants to
slap it away, let him.

Let everyone see who's working for war
and who's working for peace.

My feeling exactly.

- Proceed as planned.

- Yes, sir.

And I appreciate the way
you handled this situation
under extremely difficult circumstances.

Thank you, sir.
That's very kind.

I'd like to officially
nominate you to the Senate
as the new permanent
administrator of NASA.

Well, s-sir, that's q-quite an honor.

I'm not sure what to say.

Your country needs you, Ellen.

But take your time and think it over.

Thank you, everyone.

So
Wow.

Congratulations.

Old man knows how to pick 'em.

Thanks, I think.

What, are you holding out for
a bigger office than Margo?
I would just like to
think it over, that's all.

Think what over, Ellen?
This is our ticket to Mars.

With you in the cabinet,
it'll become a priority again.

It was a priority for Tom.
Didn't
seem to make much difference.

You're an astronaut.
That
gives you a different voice.

She's right.
President
loves his astronauts.

And you're not just any astronaut.

You're the girl who caught the tank.

He'll listen to you on space
policy more than anyone else.

Maybe.

I'll think about it.

General?
Thank you.

So, the Soviets have delayed the
launch of their Buran shuttle.

Probably for repairs.

Wheeled it back into the
maintenance building this morning.

I told you so.
They got
smart people over there too.

Probably figured out your little
O-ring problem all by themselves.

Probably so.

Emma, reach out to Sergei Nikulov.

He and his team need to get
back here as soon as possible
to finalize preparations.

Yes, ma'am.
Uh, just a reminder,
Columbia is on the pad,
scheduled for a 1430 liftoff.

- Columbia?
- Gordo's flight.

Must be beside himself.

Let's just hope he's sober.

MS-2.
Right wrist ring.

Soft capture and lock.

Copy.
MS-2.
Right wrist ring complete.

How's that feel?
Fits good.

PLT left wrist ring.

Soft capture and lock.

Copy.
PLT left wrist ring
- I'll take it from here.

- Yes, sir.

Here you go, sir.

Ah, Jesus, Ed.

Don't you got anything better to do
than to come all the way down to
Florida just to screw up my launch?
I want to take one last
look at these old shuttles
before my Pathfinder
make 'em all obsolete.

Fat chance.

Pathfinder's like a Chihuahua
compared to my sweet ride.

Yeah, you just listen
to the big kids up front,
don't touch anything,
you'll be just fine.

I'm proud of you, man.

Thanks.

Couldn't have done it without you.

You ready?
Godspeed.

Coming up on the 30-second mark,
and we are go for auto-sequence start.

SRB hydraulic power units have started.

T minus 20 seconds
18, 17,
16, 15, 14,
13, 12, ten
We have go for main engine start.

Liftoff of Columbia and
astronaut Gordon Stevens to space
after a ten-year absence.

I'm back, baby.

I'm back.

You can sit back now.

You have what we call
normal-tension glaucoma.

It's a rare condition.
No one
knows exactly what causes it.

It means that your eye pressure's
within the normal range,
but your optic nerve has been damaged.

It could be a problem
with the amount of blood
that's being supplied
to the optic nerve,
or you could have a
sensitive optic nerve.

Or there could be other conditions
that have impaired circulation.

Like radiation?
Possibly.
I don't know of any
studies looking at that as a cause.

Were you exposed to an
unusual amount of radiation
on your last trip to the moon?
Not as far as you know.

I see.

And I assume you have not had an exam
by the flight surgeon at NASA.

Uh, could you just tell me
about the treatment?
Well, the treatment to
slow down the loss of vision
would probably entail
prescription eyedrops,
combined with oral medication
and possibly surgery.

- Surgery?
- Possibly.

But again, we're talking
about slowing down
the deterioration of your vision,
not stopping it and
certainly not reversing it.

I'm sorry.
So, you're saying that
you wanna cut open my eyeballs,
but that's not gonna fix it.

I don't wanna cut open anything.

It's just a possibility.

But no, it's not going to fix this.

I'm very sorry, Ms.
Cobb.

Glaucoma is not curable.

You could ask for a second opinion,
but I'm quite certain that
you're going to experience
a progressive loss
of vision from now on.

And ultimately permanent blindness.

Thank you, Doc.

The flight surgeons are pretty good.

They're not going to miss this.

Ellington Ops.
NASA niner-6-4.

Copy, Molly.
Hold one.

Request you open box
Whiskey 147 Charlie.

NASA niner-6-4, Ellington Ops.

You got it, Molly.
Box
Whiskey 147 Charlie is open.

Come on, let's see what you got.

Give me more.
More!
Come on.

Go.

Goddamn it.
Go.

Fuck you!
Come on! Go.

NASA niner-6-4.
Ellington Ops.

You okay there, Molly? Your
altitude just dropped 15,000 feet.

Roger that, Ellington Ops.
I'm good.

Everything's A-okay.

The president has
decided to arm Pathfinder
to show the Soviets this is not
some tit-for-tat little game.

This puts us in the driver's seat.

Now, we are going to install a
battery of four Phoenix missiles
in Pathfinder's cargo bay.

Now, the space variant of the AIM-54C
has been in development for
several years at Vandenberg.

It was designed to be in a DOD shuttle,
but it will be compatible
with Pathfinder.

It's been decided that this will
henceforth be a joint mission
between NASA and the
Department of Defense.

Management of flight operations
will be controlled from MOCR,
but operations concerning the
Phoenix missiles will come from DOD.

Will we be firing missiles
on this mission?
There will be a live fire exercise
to demonstrate the system.

Now, your targets will
be a series of drones
launched into low Earth orbit
with a radar signature
simulating a Russian satellite.

How many missiles will we
fire during the exercise?
- So we're a warship now?
- No.
Pathfinder is not a warship.

But we're packed with missiles
and shooting things out of the sky.

Pathfinder's weapon system is
intended primarily for self-defense.

Primarily, but not exclusively.

So in theory, these same missiles
could be used for offensive purposes.

Am I right?
That's not in the mission plan.

This flight is a test of the
entire Pathfinder system,
and as such, it is appropriate
that we test this newest
component.

But it is only a test.

Phoenix is radar-guided.

With an operational range
of 100 nautical miles,
it uses a proximity fuse
detonation system.

And once inside the cargo bay,
the lift variation will be exactly
128 pounds per square inch.

- Are you okay?
- Yeah.

What is it?
The president offered to
make me NASA administrator.

- Aren't you already doing that?
- Permanently.

Wow.

That's amazing, Ellen.

Congratulations.
That's really
Crazy, I know.

It's It's not like I'm
gonna actually take it.

Are you sure?
Of course.
Yeah, I'm just waiting
for the right time to tell him.

There's so much going on right now.

Yeah, but this is huge.

I mean, you could be a
part of Reagan's cabinet.

- You sound like you want me to take it.

- No, it's just
Isn't this everything you always wanted?
You would be in charge of NASA.

You could finally get to Mars
Hey.

You're what I want.

Yeah?
Yeah.

Gosh, this place must seem huge
compared to the last time you were here.

Yeah, didn't have a lot of legroom
to walk around, that's for sure.

I know.
It's crazy.

I mean, just to think about
what you guys did in here.

I mean, it's the galley now.

Yeah.
Yeah, I knew that.

That's where your old
bunk used to be, right?
Looks about right.

So, where am I bunking now?
I don't know how you guys did it, man.

All that time in this one room, I mean,
I would probably just
go out of my gourd.

Nick.

New bunk.

Right, sorry, uh
Got you a prime spot right
here in crew quarters A.

Uh, far away from the
recirculating pump.

That sucker starts up
about every half hour.

Drives most people crazy
until they tune it out.

Well, I sleep like the dead,
so no worries there.

Well, you are very lucky,
because Vance over there
snores like a roller coaster.

Man, I mean, up, down,
up, down, all night.

He's a good guy.
Though
he's one of the marines.

Little bit edgy.
Uh,
but he's right over here.

And across from him is
where your ex is hot racking.

Sorry.
Crew quarters B and C are full.

There's not that much space up here.

- Hope you don't mind.

- Nah.
No, we're good.

Where is she anyway?
Oh, uh, she's out with the marines.

They've been doing EVAs
by the reactor all week.

Something with the
last Sea Dragon's cargo.

All very, uh, hush-hush.

Very top secret stuff.

With the marines? Tracy?
It was supposed to be temporary,
until one of their guys could get
up to speed on flying the LSAM.

But word is guy's not
getting the hang of it.

Yeah, well, LSAM's a tricky beast.

Holy shit, that's right.

You flew the original.

Afraid that one's just
a junker now, you know.

We just use it for spare parts.

But the other two are still flyable.

Although they're getting
pretty cranky in their old age.

Aren't we all? Well, I wouldn't worry.

I'm sure Trace will get that poor
jarhead up to speed in no time.

Yeah.
Yeah, maybe.
Probably.

Anyways, I'll just
let you get settled in.

All right.

Welcome home, sir.

Look, these three teams
are working on separate components
of the docking module
that will eventually
have to work together.

Mechanisms, avionics, life support.

But the inter-team review doesn't happen
until after each team has completed
their preliminary design.

Standard procedure.

Yes, I know, you've told me.

But if they simply collaborated
from the outset
No.

I'm an engineer, and I'm
looking at a bad design.

Oh, that's rich.

For your information, we went
to the moon with this bad design
while you were literally in diapers.

Maybe you should have worn
diapers during Gemini.

- Get out!
- Sure thing.

Peanut.

Oh.
I'm sorry, I don't, um
Oh, sorry.

Um, welcome to Little Saigon.

Uh, how many in your party?
Just me.

- Something to drink?
- Coke.

Know what you want?
Oh, uh not really.

I haven't had that much
Vietnamese food, to be honest.

Adopted?
Yeah.

- Do you like Chinese food?
- I love it.

It's similar, sorta.

Um, I'd start off with
some spring rolls.

Then either pho or banh mi.

Beef noodle soup or a pork sandwich.

Uh, the sandwich is good, but
pho is Dad's specialty.

- Your dad's the cook?
- Yeah.

Um, I'll try the "fo".

- Pho.

- Pho.

Told you.
Family recipe.

It was delicious.

Could you sit?
So, did your dad learn
to cook in Vietnam?
Uh, from his mother, my grandmother.

- Is she still alive?
- Who knows?
Dad pretty much cut off
all ties when he left.

Doesn't talk about
family back there much.

Oh.
What about your mom?
Uh, she's here.
Not
today, but she's alive.

She's not from Vietnam though.

They met after he came to the States.

So you were born here?
Yeah, I'm a natural-born
all-American girl.

Here.
Whenever you're ready.

- Here you go.

- Thank you.

- Here's your change.

- Oh, you can keep it.

Thanks.
Try the broken
rice with pork next time.

I'm assuming you're coming back
and spending a lot more
money with your friends?
Yeah, I'll I'll definitely be
thinking about it.
Thanks.

I have target acquisition.

Confirmed.
Radar shows
two active targets.

First target range 31 kilometers.

Relative velocity out of plane
1.
2 meters per second.

Within targeting parameters.

Ride, lock weapons system to target one.

System locked.
Target one.

Lock confirmed.
Second
target range 45 kilometers.

Y and Z velocities are
within targeting thresholds.

Target will be out of range soon.

Switching to second target.

System locked.
Target two.

Lock confirmed.
Ready to fire.

Fire.

Fox three.

Good lock on first target.

- Fire.

- Fox three.

Good target lock on both.

Target's maneuvering,
weapons still on track.

First target destroyed.

Second missile approaching.

Second target destroyed.

Confirmed.
No active targets.

They're all dead.

Sim complete.

Secure cabin and prepare for debrief.

- Nice work, people.

- Thanks, chief.

Yeah, thanks.

Look, I could use some air.

Not so bad.

Not bad at all.

- Boo!
- Jesus!
Fuck.

You hurt yourself?
No.

- No.

- You should have seen your face.

Yeah, got me good, I guess.

So you're here.

Here I am.

How's it feel? Feel any different?
- Totally different.

- Yeah?
Like, different in every
Oh, hey, Vance.
Have you
met my ex-husband Gordo?
Gordo, this is Vance Paulson.

He's one of the leathernecks sent here
to protect us from the
red menace out there.

Hey.
Pleasure.

Likewise.

- Navy, right?
- That's right.

Ah, I won't hold it against you.

This one here, she should
have been a marine.

- Oh, stop.

- No, the way that she flew that bucket
when we swooped in on the Russians?
We came right down to the deck.

So low if there were rabbits out there
we'd have been clipping their ears.

Thing of beauty.

Y'all are such pussies.

I was at least five meters off the deck.

Five me My ass.

I got moondust in my boots
from kicking the hilltops.

Your boots?
Yeah, they were they
were hanging on the outside skids,
all Tarzan-like.

Yeah, singing "Ride of the Valkyries"
Apocalypse Now-style.

- That was some fun shit.

- Fun shit.

These bastards keep me young.

Well, I'm hungrier than a horse.

I'm gonna go grab some chow.

You know, I'm gonna do
the same.
You wanna join?
Uh, mess hall's your
old stomping ground.

Yeah.
Yeah, I know.

Nah, I'm good.
You
know, just settling in.

Might get some rack
time, wait till breakfast.

- Good to see you, Gordo.

- You too, Trace.

reports indicate a massive explosion
on the grounds of Fort Gulick,
which is home to elements of
the United States 10th Infantry
and some Special Forces units in Panama.

Eyewitness reports
describe a large truck,
which broke through the sentry post
Fucking animals.

and drove directly into the
barracks before exploding
Enchiladas are ready.

Great.
Starving.

Could use another beer.

to stay out of the Canal Zone,
which is sovereign US territory
under international law.

What was supposed to be
a routine resupply mission
to the Jamestown moon base
has turned into another front
in the escalating war of words
between the United States
and the Soviet Union.

God What you doing creeping up on me?
I've been standing right here.

Very funny.

which NASA says is a
routine resupply mission,
will actually be carrying nuclear
- I was watching that.

- You didn't see me.

Of course I saw you.

Does it not occur to you
that I might have
other things on my fucking mind?
Yeah.
That occurred to me.

It occurred to me two months
ago when you first got back,
and you'd sit in the bathtub
for hours staring at the wall.

Told myself, "She's got a lot
on her mind.
I'll leave her be".

Told myself that every time you'd
bite my head off for no reason.

Or every time you'd
just sit there silently,
not wanting to talk about anything.

Well, I'm done leaving
you be.
Okay? I'm done.

Because there's something going on,
and you need to tell me what it is.

- What? What do you want me to say?
- I want you to tell me the truth.

I want you to tell me the truth.

I mean, whatever it is,
we'll get through it.

I don't know if we will.

I went out into that solar storm
after Wubbo.

I did not stay in the lava tube.

That was a lie.

I was on the surface for an hour.

Maybe more.

He would have died if I didn't.

Is that why
Called normal-tension glaucoma.

Trace.

Shit.
Gordo, get in here.

Get in here.
Be quiet.

Close the door, all right?
Christ.

What you doing?
Well, I cycle the air when I'm done,
and it just goes out
in the great beyond.

You see, and then the next day,
if someone smells something weird,
they just think it's the food.

Oh, that's genius.

- How many more of those?
- Seven.

Seven until, uh
until Jimmy sends the new stash
up with the next supply run.

Jimmy? You got Jimmy sending
you contraband to the moon?
He hollows out this
block of stinky cheese
and then puts it in a plastic bag.

You know? He's a smart boy.

That's a little too smart.

Yeah, I really don't wanna
know where he picked that up.

You gonna share that?
Yeah, why not?
You look good, Gordo.

You look happy.

Thanks.

Yeah.

I haven't seen you like
this in a long time.

Turned a corner, I think.

Yeah? How so?
All right, well, unless you want
this to be your last cigarette
for the next six months, I
suggest you start talking.

Uh
Well, last last time I was up here
I lost it.

Lost my way.

Started seeing things, and
I even tried to take my helmet
off while I was outside.

Oh, my God.

Dani broke her arm on purpose, Trace,
so that Ed wouldn't have to tell
Houston to send me to the nuthouse.

I'm sorry you had to go
through that alone, Gordo.

Really wish you would've told me.

You and me both.

This place can take a toll on you.

Even with all these people here,
it can still feel really, um
lonely, isolating.

I can't imagine how much worse it
must've been when you were here.

Spent the last ten years
thinking about it.

Could never understand
what really happened.

And then the other day
I was eavesdropping,
that's what I was doing,
I was eavesdropping on you talking
to Jimmy about his sixth birthday.

And you were saying something
about how that was a "happy time".

- Mm.

- And, click, it all just fell into place.

What happened up here was nothing
to do with space or claustrophobia
or losing my mind.

See, I knew that when I
got home, I was moving out.

That was just the beginning of the end.

And I don't think I could handle it.

I couldn't handle losing the most
important thing in the world to me.

You.

And it was all my fault.
I mean,
you have your moments, but
Fuck you.

I'm the one that screwed
up our marriage, Trace.

The lying, the cheating, not
being there when you needed me.

Even when I was there, I know I wasn't.

I know that.

And it all just came apart.

And I heard you talking to Jimmy
about a happy time, and
I just knew right then in my heart
that I wouldn't ever
have a happy time again
until I was back with you.

- Oh, Gordo.

- That's why I'm here, Trace.

I'm here to get you back.

Hell, I even told Sam.

- I'm sorry, you what?
- To his face.

I said, "I'm getting Tracy back, Sam".

Oh, God, Gordo.
What did he say?
- He said
- Goddamn it, Gordo.

Wait, wait, wait, wait.
He said
"Tracy is like a wild horse.

No one's ever gonna catch her".

Yeah.

Is that what you think?
I think no man, woman or
beast could ever catch you.

Unless you wanna be caught.

Catch me if you can.

I don't know if you saw
the d-mail from NASA HQ
asking about the Pathfinder
cost estimates?
I did a quick budget analysis
last night, if it's helpful.

Mm.

I'd go with red.

- What?
- He likes red.

Who?
Mr.
Nikulov.
Your first meeting.

What does what he likes
have to do with anything?
Oh.

Nothing, I suppose.

I'll get you that Pathfinder
budget analysis right away.

- Morning.

- Oh, morning.

Nice color.

This?
Did you get a chance to review
the docking loads analysis?
I did.
Uh, they seem satisfactory.

There's a new directive from Moscow.

The politburo has determined
that the symbolism of the
first handshake is important
and that it should be exactly, um, um
equidistant, that's the word.

Equidistant between the two spacecraft.

That way neither side is the host,
neither side is the visitor, you see?
Well, the module is
exactly 3.
15 meters long,
so the midpoint would be 1.
575.

Yes.
Uh, here here.

But that presents certain problems.

Look.

Uh
you be the Americans.

Now, the midpoint is there.

So Come on.

Ow.

In theory, if you give me your hand
Like that, so All seems good, no?
No.
Yes.

Um Seems good.

But the problem is
that from this position
we are blocking all views
from both Soyuz and Apollo.

Well, I suppose.
What
Now, where will the camera
go? No one will see this.

Hmm.

No point in doing a symbol
of peace if no one can see it.

Okay.

Well
If one side had to host
Moscow would prefer
it be the Soviet Union.

And Washington would
prefer it be Apollo.

Ah.

What if we just flip a coin?
Mm, that would be, uh
acceptable.

- Do you have one? Sorry.

- Yeah.

- No pockets.

- Yes.
I think so.

Okay.

You call it.

Oh
Uh, eagle.

- I'm sorry.
Uh
- Oh, yeah, hold on.
Um
- I I think it's on, uh
- Oh, yeah.

Under.

Uh
Sorry, you're you're gonna have
to back up.
I I can't get
My
My pants are caught.

Uh, well, I Maybe I could get
- Um
- Um
Ms.
Madison
Yes?
Ms.
Madison, uh, there is a situation
I think you need to deal with.

Uh, excuse me.

Bill Strausser quit.
And,
evidently, you're the cause.

M-Me? I didn't do anything.

Well, you must've done something.

"It became apparent today after
a conversation with Ms.
Rosales
that I do not have the
respect of my colleagues,
and therefore I am unable
to continue in my position".

- What the hell did you say to him?
- Nothing.

What did you say to him?
I mean, okay I did call him
Peanut.

I should have never told you that story.

I was trying to be nice
and share a confidence
It just popped out.
I didn't
think it would make him quit.

You didn't think.

Bill Strausser is a valuable
member of this team
who has given over 20 years of
loyal service to this agency,
and he does not deserve to leave
because some dumb kid shot her mouth off
and humiliated him!
Convince him to come back
or find yourself another job.

- Excuse me?
- Aleida, I stuck my neck out for you.

- You owe me at least
- I don't owe you a damn thing.

- Calm down.

- No, don't tell me to calm down.

You don't get to tell me anything, ever.

If you wanna fire me,
go ahead.
I don't care.

I don't care.

Oh, I see.

This is what you do, isn't it?
What? Stand up for myself?
That's why you've been fired
from every job you've ever had.

Going gets rough and
Aleida gets going, right?
Fuck you.

I I think you're doing a pretty
good job of that yourself.

You wanna blow this job, go right ahead.

But if you wanna be
an aerospace engineer,
this is the end of the road.

And with answers ranging in
value from $100 to $500 in
Hi.

Could I come in and
Wait, no, no, no.

I I just wanna talk.

- I don't wanna talk to you.

- Just for a few minutes.
Five minutes.

Please, Bill.
Come on.

Yeah, all right.
Come on.

Goddamn it, I missed it.
I knew it.

Whoa.

Is that a real commlock
from Space: 1999?
I gave a tour of MOCR to
Barbara Bain a few years ago,
and she sent that as a thank-you.

Is that Buzz Aldrin's glove?
I'm not giving you a tour.

What do you want?
I'm here 'cause I I wanted to say
I'm sorry.

Fine.
Thanks for coming by.

So, are you gonna come
back to work? Or
Nope.

Please, Bill.
Come on.

It was just one moment.

Just Just a dumb thing to say,
and I'll never ever say it again.

You think it's about that?
I've been dealing with this
story for almost 20 years.

You're barely at NASA a month?
You've already heard.

Do you even know what
Gemini mission it was?
What was going on when
Bill peed his pants?
- It doesn't matter.

- Yes, it does.

- Really
- It's March 16th, 1966.
Gemini 8.

That mean anything to you?
Yeah, sure.

Uh
Neil Armstrong and David Scott started
tumbling and spinning in orbit,
and they nearly blacked out.

Nearly died.

If they black out, it's over.

Now, I'm on console, about to go
off duty, and, yeah, I had to pee.

And suddenly Neil is saying he's
lost control of the spacecraft,
and it's getting worse.

And we might lose two of
the first Americans in space.

So I stayed at my post.

Even after Neil regained control.

We didn't know how badly
damaged the capsule was.

So I stayed with everyone.

Waiting and watching
and hoping
and praying.

You know they had to reenter over China?
Yeah, we don't have any
tracking stations in China.

So when we lost their signal,
it wasn't for a few minutes.

It was an hour.

Until an air force pilot saw
their chutes deploy over Okinawa.

We got word that they splashed
down, and they were okay.

We jumped up.
And we cheered.

It was the first time I'd ever
been part of a moment like that.

And I'm standing there, cheering.

And Frank Bedlow looks at me and says,
"Bill, did you pee your pants?"
People still talk about it
20 goddamn years later.

I
was shot.

- What?
- Shotgun.

Rock salt, but, uh, there
was some bird shot in it too.

There's still some of
it in my shoulder
Look, I don't know what
you're trying to do
Just Just hear me out.

Okay?
There was a time in my life where
I didn't have anywhere to live.

Nowhere.

Occasionally I would
crash on friends' couches,
but it was mostly underpasses,
park benches.
Some backyards.

Some backyards are so big,
people don't know what's
going on back there anyway.

I had to eat.
Obviously.

But I had no money.

So, I would, uh
scavenge behind restaurants for food.

There's this restaurant on Bryant Street
that had some really good stuff,
so I would go back there,
and the owner would come out,
and he would just yell at me.

"Get out of here, you wetback.

You're stinking up the
neighborhood.
Get a job".

So, one day, I'm back there.

The guy comes out.
And
this time he's got a gun.

I don't even remember getting shot.

I just remember this loud noise
and being on the ground
and then just getting up and running.

Just kept running.

Stopped in the park.

And that's when I realized that
blood was soaking my shirt.

And the left side of my body
felt like it was on fire.

Jesus.

So I went to the emergency
room, and they cleaned me up.

And I told them what happened,
and they called the police.

'Cause that's what you do
when someone gets shot.

You call the police.

But I was here illegally, and I
didn't want to talk to the police.

So I just
left.

I left before they got
all the bird shot out.

So I still have a lot of it in there.

I have these, uh, big, ugly
scars
all through there.

So I don't wear any, um, tank tops
or bathing suits or halter
tops or any of that shit.

Nobody gets to see that.

So
I have my own shame, Bill.

And believe me when I say that
I'm really sorry
I made you feel yours all over again.

Screen Actors Guild is absolutely right.

World Leaders for 200.

The answer: Britain's
first female prime minister.

Her popularity soared after
the Falklands War.
Larry.

It's Margaret Thatcher.

- Who is Margaret Thatcher?
- Right.

- Let's try Hot Movies for 400.

- Needs to be in the form of a question.

Fuck you.

- You're right.

- Hot Movies for 300.

The male stars tested their
disguises for this '59 film
by visiting the studio
ladies' room.
Larry.

- What is Some Like It Hot?
- Some Like It Hot.
Yes.

Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis.

They must've had a lot of fun
going to the ladies' rooms
dressed up that way,
but we'll talk about
that on some other show.

Right now, Larry, make a selection.

Okay.
I have your tips ready.

21.
50.

- Not a bad night.

- No.
No, that's great.
Thank you.

Mm-hmm.

Uh, I just I just wanted to say
about the other night
- Yeah, I don't really know what happened.

- Nothing happened.

Right.

Two friends had a nice moment
and shared a friendly kiss.

Maybe it was a little more friendly
than it should have been, but
Yeah.

Sorry.

Don't be sorry.

Um, we can move on.
We don't
have to keep talking about it.

Right.

- Good night, Danny.

- Good night, Mrs.
Baldwin.

Thought you were leaving.

I don't
I don't know what to say.

I I know we're supposed to
forget about what happened.

But I
I can't.

I just keep thinking about it.

Your hair
- and your lips.

- Danny.

All I can do is think about
holding you in my arms.

Stop talking.

Stop talking.

Go lock the door.

Turn off the lights.

Come meet me downstairs.

Go.
Now.

You really gonna sell this place?
Hmm.
Lock, stock and barrel.

Gonna be weird, someone
else owning the Outpost.

First day I ever came here,
day you had the grand opening.

- Yeah?
- Mm-hmm.

That was a fun day.

It was a total disaster.

I remember the beer taps wouldn't
work, the toilets overflowed.

It was a mess.
But fun.

Um, so, is it just not fun anymore?
That's a good way to put it.

People love it though.

They do.
They come in here, and
they look at the space pictures
and the space models.

Anything that has anything
to do with space.

Yeah, I see it in their faces
when they come through the door.

They look around, like,
"There any astronauts in here?"
"Oh, did that piece of crap
really go to space?"
"Ooh, is that space crap?"
I swear I could sell actual crap.

You know, just a ziplock
bag filled with it,
if I said it had been to space.

Yeah, I don't doubt it.

Why?
Everyone wants to go to space.

Not me.
Never have.

Well, everyone but you.

Mm-hmm.

But most people never will.

So coming here, buying
some goofy trinket
is the closest they'll ever
come to the real thing.

Till NASA starts selling tickets.

Hmm.

NASA's never gonna do that.

They would never sell
tickets to space, right?
I highly doubt it.

Someone will.

And they're gonna make a killing.

Karen.

You called me Karen.

I love you.

No, you don't, Danny.
No, you don't.

- Yes, I do.

- No, you don't.

I I love you, Karen.

Okay.
Let's just
Let's get a grip here.

I I You're all that I think about.

No.

- I've been in love with you for years now.

- What? No.
That's not what this is.
No.

- Yeah.

- No.
No, no, no.
No.

I'll leave the academy.
We can
find a place to live in the city.

What?
Danny, that's not
that's not what this is.

This is not love.

- It's not going any further.

- What?
- I thought we just had
- We had a really great time.

We did.
It was really,
really great, okay?
And And it was something that
we both wanted and needed maybe.

I I don't
I mean, I know I wanted it.

And I And I needed it.

And so I did it.

And it was great.

Hey.
You were great.

You were great, sweetie.

But it's over.

- No.

- It's over.

- It doesn't have to be.

- Yes, it does.

- Why?
- Because I said so, okay?
It's over.
Get dressed.

Just You should leave out
the back door, all right?
Just lock it behind you like
you're the last one that was here.

And I'll leave later on.

Just get in your car and you drive home.

Call in sick tomorrow though.

And you leave for the academy
at the end of the week anyway.

Don't worry.
I'll get you
your last week's paycheck.

I don't care about any of that.

About-face.

That's an order.

Don't turn back.
Just go.

Oh, my God.

357 Bravo, LSAM 2,
I am five minutes out
with your relief crew.

Copy that, LSAM 2.

Looking forward to some
hot chow and a shower.

Captain Stevens, you
ready for some stick time?
Roger that.

All right.
Switching to PLT.

You have the vehicle.

A lot of lag in the RCS thrusters.

Man, she does not
respond like she used to.

Okay, boys and girls,
please return your tray
tables and your seat backs
to their upright and locked positions.

Next mining crew is set
to arrive at 1130 hours to start.

- Movement.

- What?
Where?
Ten o'clock.
I saw something
flash at the top of that ridge.

Are you sure? I don't see
movement anywhere up there.

Wait.
Got it.

We got company.

Wilhelm, hold the fort.

Webster, Lopez, come with me.

Houston, MARDET actual.

We've got unfriendlies on
the ridge over 357 Bravo.

Heading up to check it out.

Copy that.
Approach with caution.

Once you have them in your sight,
attempt to contact
on their radio frequency.

Will comply, Houston.

Heads up, eyes open.
Spread out.

Clear on the right.

Webster, cover left.

Roger left.
Holding.

Moving.

Left is clear.
Crossing right.

Gotcha.
Taking left flank.

Still nothing.

Houston.
Contact, front.

What've you got?
I see two cosmonauts working
on some kind of equipment.

They haven't spotted us yet.

Lopez, you see any more of them?
Negative, skipper.
Just these two.

Houston, your call.

MARDET 1, switch to Russian
communication frequency
and order them to vacate immediately.

Wilco.

Webster, take point.

Get on their freq and tell
these guys to get lost.

Lopez, keep her covered.

Roger.

Switching frequencies.

Attention Soviet Cosmonauts.

This area is claimed by the
United States government.

They're moving.

I got 'em.

Stay cool, guys.

I don't like this.
What's he doing?
What's in that case? Is that a gun?
Stop! Step away from the case.

Shots fired.
Shots fired.

Enemy down.

You, stay away from the case.

Shit.
Go, go, go.

Goddamn it.

MARDET 1, Houston.

MARDET 1, sitrep.

Houston, two hostiles
down.
And it's bad.

Wait one.

Jesus.
This guy's on fire.

Holy shit.

Jesus.
What do I do?
Hold on, buddy.

You got a hole in your suit,
but we're gonna patch you up.

Webster, Lopez.
Sound off.

- I'm good.

- Uh, I I'm good.

Breathe, buddy, breathe.

You're gonna be okay.

- Stevens?
- Copy, Vance.

This guy needs a medevac, ASAP.

Fuck me.

We're on the ridge.
About
300 meters in from the crest.

Copy your position.
Be there in a flash.

Webster, secure their weapons.

Aye, aye.

MARDET 1, Houston.

What's your situation?
I say again, MARDET 1.
Houston.

Request status update.

Houston, MARDET actual.

Site is secure.

We have two enemy casualties.

One dead, one wounded.

Medevac inbound.

Get the White House.

Jesus.
Skipper.

What is it?
There are no weapons.

Then what were they reaching for?
Oh, my God.
