Gen V (2023) s01e05 Episode Script

Welcome to the Monster Club

[SHETTY] That's the sum total
of your searing insight
that Sam skull-fucked Bob here?
This is Greg.
[SHETTY] Find Sam. I want
the whole security team on this.
You saved me.
[EMMA] Where are we?
Old drive-in movie place.
I guess then it's just us together.
I heard you're a psychic.
You're looking for your roommate,
but she's not the only girl
you're looking for.
- What the fuck?!
- [JORDAN] Wh-What were you thinking,
asking him for help?
Since when do you care about anyone
not named Jordan?
Tek fucking Knight is on campus.
He fucks people up.
How long have you been
eating Golden Boy's
girlfriend's hole?
[JORDAN] This school has a fucking
Mengele Health Clinic.
We don't know who's in on it.
[SAM] Dr. Cardosa.
He hurt me and he won't leave me alone.
You have to kill him!
- Just let my family go.
- You're all fucking puppets!
You're-you're one of them!
- [MARIE] Emma!
- [SAM] Let me go!
We're gonna make it right.

Hey, Cate?
[SIGHS] What's wrong?
Where are we?
You don't remember?
- Do you?
- Mm.
What is that?
- [ANDRE] Watch your step.
- Are we at Dusty's house?
[ANDRE] Yeah, it's Dusty's.
Hey, Sloane.
- Ooh, hi, guys. [GRUNTS]
Wish I could remember.
Seems like it was a pretty
fucking awesome party.
- I'll say.
- Oh, shit! I just Sorry, I just thought
- Holy shit. Sorry, oh,
- Is this that
- we're sorry about that.
- Right on. I just thought,
- We're just leaving. We're just leaving.
- But
- Bye.
- Uh
- Hey.
- Hey.
- I'm just gonna
- Yeah.
Um, I, uh,
I think this is yours.
Yeah. Yup.
Look, this is gonna sound
super fucked-up and weird,
but I don't remember
what happened last night.
Oh, my God. Neither do I.
Where the fuck are we?
No idea.
Did we
[ANDRE] Dusty, you in there?
I'm a freak, yeah, I know ♪
[MAN] Ooh. All right, I'm ready.
[WOMAN] Let's go again.
Can we throw it down again? ♪
Can we throw it down again? ♪
- I'm a freak, yeah ♪
[MARIE] Emma?
I hate this fucking dream.
This is real.
I think.
[PANTING] Okay. Okay.
Do your girl a solid and choke
me out of my fucking misery?
- No.
- Fine.
Then find me a place to puke.
[JORDAN] Okay, look,
seriously, Andre.
I don't remember anything.
So how do you know
whether you did it or not
have the sex with Marie?
Okay, that's not
I don't blackout, ever.
I mean, I could take a whole case
of Beam to the face and be fine.
Why your chonies twisted over this?
Marie's fly, nice in a fight,
and far as I know, of legal age.
Is it It's a Black thing, isn't it?
- Oh, my God.
- It's a Black thing.
Leave him alone. It's sweet.
I think you guys make a cute couple.
Thanks, but this whole
fucking morning is weird.
You know what day it is?
- It's, like
- Friday.
It's fucking Saturday.
Hold up. It is
- fucking Saturday.
- Guys,
look, it's not that I don't
remember the party or Marie.
I-I mean, I don't,
but more importantly
There are days that I am missing.
Like, huge gaps in my memory.
Mine too.
What the fuck is going on?
- Let's rub it up ♪
Push it up to the top ♪
Let it out, push it up, never stop ♪
We got energy, big energy ♪
Oh, my God, guys. Come check
this out. It's getting hot!
- Let's rev it up ♪
- Push it up to the top ♪
- Yes!
Rev it up, push it up, never stop ♪
Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug!
Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug!
Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug!
I mean
you're trending.
For flashing my giant
white ass to the world.
Did you know you could do that?
Get big?
Unless it's none of my business,
which, it's not. Never mind.
No, I've known ever since
the Buster Beaver incident.
Google at your own peril.
My mom called me a monster,
then made me swear never to do it again.
That's horrible.
Exactly why this is going
straight to voice mail.
[SIGHS] Okay.
How long have you been snogging Jordan?
I don't even know how to answer that.
Is a male asshole tighter
than a female asshole?
Jesus, Emma.
Emma! Are-are you okay?
I was out of line,
and I'm so sorry that I left you,
especially after you stopped me
from doing something terrible.
But I'm-I'm fine now, and
I know it sounds weird,
but I was so happy to smell
your throw-up because it meant
that you got away from
Why are you looking at me like that?
Emma, it's-it's me, Sam. The-the Woods,
the the-the Stardust Drive-In.
Look, hey, hey, hey, hey, Sam?
That's your name?
And you're-you're Marie,
the the blood girl.
I think you're confused.
Maybe you saw us on TV
or TikTok or something?
You don't actually know us
in real life,
we don't know you at all.
They made you forget.
Who's they?
Wait, is is someone after you, Sam?
I mean, do you need help?
Emma, there are
evil people at that school.
People that don't want you
to know about me
or the truth, and you-you
can't trust anyone.
But we can trust you?
No. No.
No, she's right.
I wouldn't trust me, either,
not after what I did.
I'm gonna find a way to fix this.
I'm gonna make you remember.
Remember what?
That you're a hero.
A real one.
That guy's
fucking crazy.
Kind of cute, though, right?
I don't think it's that weird.
Toe socks are weird, Emma.
That guy had literal blood
under his fingernails,
and it wasn't his.
God, your powers are fucking bonkers.
Wait. When am I gonna get
my period again?
- Holy fuck, Emma.
- What? I lost track.
You're insane.
Uh, I mean, next Friday, though.
- Fucking thank you.
- [CATE] Marie?
Oh, you go. I have to shower
and put on actual clothes.
Did you, uh did you
black out last night?
[SCOFFS] I-I don't really think
that's any of your business.
[CATE] Marie, we all blacked out.
And not just the party.
The-the past few days.
Think about it. I blew off my
interview with Hailey Miller,
but I don't know why.
I remember Tek Knight being
here, I remember talking to him,
but I don't remember why.
There was a kid just now.
He acted like he knew me and Emma.
What kid? Another student?
Sam something. I-I've never seen him.
Unless you have and forgot.
What'd he want?
To save us. From someone at the school,
from the school itself.
What the fuck?
- Fuck you do to us, Dusty?
Hey, Jordan, he's just a kid.
Dusty's not a kid. He's, like, 28.
Yet I still got a dick
like a hairless caterpillar.
Fuck my life.
I think I know who did this.
Rufus was here last night.
Of course it's him.
I sort of
blew his dick off.
He nearly killed my family, Indira.
He's far more trouble than he's worth,
and Golden Boy is dead anyway.
The point is, I'm done with Sam.
He's not my problem anymore.
I'm tired of babysitting psychopaths.
Babysitting psychopaths
is literally your job.
Those kids found out about him.
Those kids have been handled.
- They won't be a problem.
- Come on. You know
it's just a matter of time
before they find out
about everything else
we're doing down here.
I am this fucking close
to perfecting the virus, a viable way
to control them for good.
But if they discover that?
I'm not paid nearly enough
to die for this shit.
So you want a raise?
- No, that's not what I
- So why don't you
tell me what it is you do want?
Because we both know
you're not going anywhere.
Cutting up Supes and
seeing how they tick
is a skill that won't quite shine
on your LinkedIn profile.
I want the girl.
Her abilities are
the rarest I've ever seen.
She doesn't understand
how powerful she really is.
She's the perfect subject,
could speed up my timeline.
She is special.
But no.
You're not the only one
interested in Moreau.
She has a benefactor,
and because of that,
she's strictly off-limits.
For now.
[ANDRE] So what you're saying
is that Rufus has to piss
sitting down forever.
You do it on purpose?
No, it was an accident.
I'm not even sure how I did it.
He fucking deserved it.
Why were you even talking to him?
I don't remember.
I was looking for something.
I met him in Intro Psych freshman year.
He said he liked my gloves.
And then
three days later
I woke up in a random bed
with a camera pointed at me.
He saw I was awake, smiled, and said,
"Make this weird,
and I'll wipe you again".
[MARIE] Holy fucking shit.
Cate, did you tell anybody?
And say what?
He had me on camera consenting.
It doesn't matter. I don't
even remember it, so
Your body fucking remembers.
Are you
Are you okay?
I should've known better,
and now I do, so
This is exactly his M.O.
So, I get him coming after me for
revenge or whatever, but
why go after you guys?
[JORDAN] Where's Andre?
Oh, shit. Rufus.
He's gonna kill Rufus.
I knew it was you! Oh, my God.
No, girl, you were litty
last night! Yeah, no,
- you got that big Supe energy!
- I got that energy, yeah ♪
- [LAUGHING] Yeah.
- Born with it ♪
- Ain't never stopping it, yeah ♪
- Born with it ♪
- Just got the energy, yeah ♪
- Born with it ♪
- I was born with it, yeah, yeah ♪
Born with it. ♪
You know, this is
a fucked-up situation, but
I just want to say
it doesn't need to be weird.
B-Between us, I mean.
[LAUGHING] Oh, oh.
No, you don't you don't
need to say or do anything.
'Cause that scumbag mind-raped us.
And we weren't acting like ourselves.
Yeah. I hear you,
- um, but
- It's all good.
It's cool. We're cool.
Yeah, yeah. [CHUCKLES]
Totally. We are cool.
There's Rufus.
[MARIE] What's he doing with Shetty?
[JORDAN] Let's find out.
Wait, wait, wait, wait.
Not till he's away from Shetty.
What? You're the one who wanted
to report this piece of shit.
I know. I know, but
I don't trust her.
I don't know why, but
I am sure.
I like being a big bad boss ♪
I like telling people off ♪
I like working under pressure ♪
I'm a freak, it gives me pleasure ♪
I like control, I'm obsessed ♪
What the fuck did you do to us,
you piece of shit?
What were you talking to Shetty about?
Benny! What the fuck, man?!
Rufus gave me 20 bucks
to take his shape.
I don't fucking know.
It's the reason I exist ♪
You know, I'm allowed to do it
when I have permission, man.
Yeah! Yeah! ♪
Good job. I think you lost 'em.
Get the fuck out of here!
I never touched Marie.
Okay, that psycho attacked me.
Yeah? What about Cate?
Did she attack you, too?
Actually, yeah.
Fucking Jumanji.
Well, how about you explain to me
what you did to the rest of us and why,
and maybe I'll consider
not putting you to sleep
- for good?
Tell it to my heart ♪
Kind of holding up the line there, dawg.
- [WOMAN] Wake up.
- Or just a game? ♪
Tell it to my heart ♪
I can feel my body rock ♪
- Every time you call ♪
- Fuck!
Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug!
[WOMAN] Dusty's parties hit different.
Guess who broke the top 100!
- What are you talking about?
- The rankings.
- [CHUCKLES] I jumped up to 88.
- Are you fucking serious?
Yeah, all these years,
my mom's been like,
"Don't get big. It's weird and gross".
But now I have, like, 20 voice mails
about doing a Giant Cricket show.
Is that what you want?
Oh, fuck, no! I mean, I don't know.
I mean, my mom can just
eat a giant bag of dicks.
I'm just done being her clown, you know?
But you know what I really
want in this moment?
Is to pick a fit
and then to hear about
your new boyfriend-girlfriend,
Jordan said
"We're cool".
What's that supposed to mean?
- They changed their mind.
- Or they think you did.
- Did you?
- I don't know.
Oh, my God, Mar, it's not that hard.
Do you like Jordan? Do you want
to hang out with them?
Do you want to talk to them?
Do you want to put your mouth
on their mouth
and other fucking body parts?
I mean, come on.
This isn't quantum physics.
I just don't know what it means.
It means that you like a person.
- Who gives a fuck what it means, Marie?
- Okay! I do.
I like them.
I li-I like them.
- I got to talk to them.
- Wait, holy shit.
What's wrong?
What is that?
- That kid Sam.
- That weird kid?
He said something about a drive-in.
[MAN 1] You can't run forever, you know?
[MAN 2] They're gonna find you.
Ding, ding, ding. Only this time
- they'll hurt her, too.
- [MAN 1] You know what you have to do.
[PUPPET EMMA] This is bad, Sam.
You said you were gonna save me.
I'm-I'm gonna to save the
the real Emma,
not you. You're-you're not
You're not real.
- Real like that?
- [MAN] Go, go, go!
- [DISPATCHER] Team A, B, C,
proceed with extreme caution.
[MAN] Go, go, go, go, go!
- Drop the weapon!
- [DISPATCH] Team A, Team A.
- Don't you fucking move!
- [MAN 1] Get down on the ground!
- I heard he ripped a guy's throat out.
- Hey, freeze!
I was just a little ghoul
when I heard his name ♪
- He's the graveyard legend of the dancing game ♪
Rumor has it he invented
how to knock 'em dead ♪
He's the reason that
we all say "break a leg" ♪
When the sun goes down
all the ghosts come out ♪
Monsters come from all the lands ♪
- Just to see the bones of Skeleton Sam ♪
Dance, dance, dance,
dance, dance, dance ♪
Please. I'm a single dad
with two daughters.
Their names are Hailey and [COUGHS]
Oh, Sam.
You have to stop hurting people.
[MARIE] So, you think
Sam knows what's happening?
How all this shit is connected?
I mean, he knows more than we
do. He said they made us forget.
I mean, it has to be more than
Rufus. It has to be the school.
Rufus was with Shetty.
I-I'm I mean, I guess it's possible,
but what did she want us to forget?
I mean, that's why
I have to go find Sam.
Why the fuck are you scratching
your neck like Tyrone Biggums?
I am?
There's blood clotted.
Right under here.
What the fuck is that?!
- Marie?
- Where's Andre?
Holy fuck, are you all right?
No, I'm not okay.
Everything is fucked, Cate. I-I
- I can't
- Hey, slow down.
I know how this sounds.
[WHISPERING] But they put
trackers inside of us.
Marie, uh
Sit-sit down. What are
you talking about?
Who the fuck is "they"?
Di-Did that Sam guy come back?
No. I don't know.
I don't know. I But
This was in my neck.
Oh, my God.
- Oh, my God.
- Cate, I think
this is way, way bigger than Rufus.
I think something really
fucked happened to us
is happening to us and I think
Dean Shetty is a part of it.
Do I have one, too?
I'm so, so sorry.
I really wish it didn't
have to be like this.
It's you.
I don't know. I mean
she just seemed so fucking freaked out
when she woke up with me looking like
like this.
Jenny Boccabella was my first
girlfriend in the sixth grade.
And she always wanted me
to just be a guy.
So I changed for her.
[MAVERICK] Did you ask
if Marie was freaked out?
She might not give a shit.
I mean, I
No. I just assumed that
that's what she'd want.
That's on you.
You're the one who turns
into a dude to hook up with her.
This is your hangup, not hers.
You think?
Yeah. Look, for all you know,
she's cool with hiding
the sausage and bumping donuts.
Like, sometimes, I hide
in the women's showers
and watch girls jerk off
and sometimes I hide in the men's.
Gender's just a construct.
What the fuck, dude?
Hey, man, no kink shaming.
Aw, fuck, I got to go.
She's super pissed at me.
Sloane, wait!
- Come on, don't be like that.
- Hey.
- Hey.
Look, I know I said earlier that
What the hell happened to you?
I have no idea.
That's fucking weird. Look,
I feel like we've been
avoiding each other, and
Okay, listen, I know I said
that we were cool earlier,
but I don't know
if that's actually true.
I mean, I've been doing
a lot of thinking, and
Wait, you never said we were cool.
Yes, I did, before we chased Rufus.
The psychic guy? Why
why would we chase him?
He fucking wiped you again.
That motherfucker.
I think there's something there.
[CATE] I can't do this anymore.
I just can't.
[VOICE BREAKING] The lying and
pretending and
acting to be someone I'm not.
They know something's wrong.
And they're gonna keep looking
and they're gonna
figure it out eventually
and I'm just gonna
I'm ju just gonna have to keep
I-I tried, I really tried.
I know. I know you did,
and I am sorry, sweetheart.
I know what I've asked you
to do is difficult.
Maybe too difficult.
Helping people is your gift, Cate.
That's what makes you so special.
No one else can help people get
past what's holding them back
like you.
All I've ever asked is that you try.
Use your gift for good,
no matter how hard it gets.
Because you're the only one
who can keep your friends safe.
[SAM] Emma?
Are you alone?
I mean, technically, I'm with you, so
That's probably not
what you meant, but
I mean, should I not be?
Do you re remember me?
Sam, I don't remember you.
No, but I do believe you.
I do.
I mean, you were right.
Someone made me forget you.
It's not your fault.
She made Luke forget me, too.
Can we just be us for a minute
and forget everything else?
For sure.
Come here. Hey.
- Okay, listen up.
Someone's been mutilating nuns
over at St. Patrick's again.
- I'll take that one.
- You got it.
Show's not the same
without Luke's hot takes.
His commentary was hilarious.
And he hated that kid.
[ANDRE LAUGHS] He really did.
Everything's different now.
Cate, you're the only reason I'm
still at this goddamn school.
And I think we should
both get the fuck out.
We really should.
- Yeah.
- That would be amazing.
- Andre?
There are no secrets from me.
Rufus, time for a chat.
No, no, no.
Stay the fuck away!
[PANTING] No, let me go.
We just want to talk.
God, I swear to fucking Christ
I never touched any of you.
What are you and Shetty up to?
This is way above
your weaselly pay grade,
but you're fucking with us for a reason.
You're all fucking nuts.
Look at the facts.
The facts you made me forget?
Okay, okay, wait. Wait, wait, wait.
You say I wiped your
memory tonight, right?
Except I couldn't have done that,
because my powers only work up close,
and I've been here
for the last five hours.
- Please tell them!
I'm pretty yipped on 2C-B right now,
but that sounds right.
That doesn't mean you're innocent.
- What the fuck is this?
- How the fuck do I know?
It was implanted in my fucking neck!
- Can't talk. We found Rufus.
- Marie, it's not him.
Look, I just work
in the dean's office, okay?
I don't know shit about implants,
and I didn't do shit
to you at the party.
- Stop fucking lying!
- It's Cate!
- [RUFUS] Please don't kill me.
- Why would you say that?
Sam is Golden Boy's brother.
Cate made him forget
he even had a brother
over and over and over.
And, look, I know
Rufus is a monster, but so is Cate.
Please. Pl-Please don't kill me.
I've been waiting all night for this.
Jordan, it's not him. It's Cate.
What? That's fucking crazy.
- I know, but it's true.
- You sure?
I'm sure.
[JORDAN] Fuck.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa,
Andre, hold on, hold on.
Andre, Andre, you need to calm down.
- Move. This scumbag's mine.
- Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.
Nowhere to run, motherfucker.
- [YELLS] Wait, wait, wait. Andre.
- Just stop.
- It wasn't him.
- It was Cate!
Bullshit. Cate would never
do something like that.
[CATE] Andre, don't!
[ANDRE] Cate,
tell them it isn't true.
I'm so sorry.
I've only ever wanted
to help and protect you.
I just wanted to make
things better, and
- [SAM] You're all lying.
You're-you're all fucking
- puppets!
- [TEK] You wanted
what Golden Boy had.
His girlfriend, the number one spot.
Is that why he blew himself up?
We don't know who's in on it.
Maybe Dean Shetty.
I can't lose you, too.
They call it The Woods. It's like this
fucked-up hospital or something.
[LUKE] Help Sam if you can, please.
I love you.
An-Andre, pl-please
understand, I didn't
