Beginning to think That I'm wastin' time Uh, um - I don't understand the things I do - Do you have any threes? [JOHN] Go fish.
- World outside - [PENNY] Okay.
- looks so unkind - [PENNY] Do you have any The Resolute made 23 routine trips.
So what happened to ours? - There's no use in speculating.
- [COMPUTER BEEP ECHOES] [AUTOMATED VOICE] Completing de-orbit burn.
Helmets on.
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll And drift away [AUTOMATED VOICE] Begin entry phase in 30 seconds.
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll And drift away [SIGHS] Okay.
Um, it's still my turn.
[SONG CONTINUES PLAYING] Do you have any nines? - [JUDY] Seriously, Penny? - [PENNY] What? Did you see my hand? [PENNY] You count cards.
I don't know why everyone doesn't.
Okay, can I have my nine, please? - [CRASHING] - [ALARMS BEEPING, BLARING] [AUTOMATED VOICE] Music off.
Atmospheric disturbance detected.
[JOHN] Deep breaths.
Remember your training.
The computer will land us just fine.
That's what it's for.
[JOHN] Deep breaths.
Landing trajectory off course.
- Mom! - Take my hand.
- Hold on to me! - [AUTOMATED VOICE] Warning.
[AUTOMATED VOICE] Entry angle exceeding parameters.
- 4,000 feet.
- [JOHN] It's okay.
- [ALARM BLARING] - 3,000 feet.
Entry angle exceeding parameters.
- [JOHN] Take my hand.
- 2,000 feet.
Take my hand.
1,000 feet.
Brace for impact.
Brace for impact.
Brace for impact.
[JUDY] Judy accounted for.
Penny accounted for.
[PANTING] Will? Will? Are you all right? Accounted for.
[AUTOMATED VOICE] Landing surface unstable.
[JOHN] Let's evacuate.
- [JUDY] Supply cabinet.
- [PENNY] Already on it.
Maureen? - [MAUREEN] It's my leg.
- Mom? It's fine.
It's just stuck.
It's okay.
I got this.
You go get the supplies.
[JUDY] Will, follow me.
[JOHN] Damn it! [GRUNTING] - [JUDY] Will, stay close.
- [WILL] I'm coming.
Quick, to the top hatch.
Come on.
In here.
Come on.
[GRUNTING] - It's jammed! Will, come on up.
- [WILL] Okay.
[AUTOMATED VOICE] Landing surface unstable.
- [JOHN] Judy.
Come on.
- [WILL] I'm up! I don't fit.
We'll have to go around.
Don't go anywhere.
We'll come around.
[RUMBLING] [SHIP CREAKING] [JUDY] Are those other Jupiters? At least eight.
We're not the only ones that made it.
[PANTING] Made it where? Here, sit down.
[GRUNTS] Lucky I just happened to be here.
Lucky thing.
- [ICE CRACKING] - [SHIP CREAKING] [JOHN] No, no, no! Oh, the weather outside is frightful So, who's my Secret Santa? But the fire is so delightful [CHUCKLES] And since we've no place to go Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow - Ta-da! - Are those my mom's cookies? Grandma wasn't here to bake them this year, so, gave it a shot.
She never trusted me with the recipe.
I don't know, I guess I'm just special? [JOHN LAUGHS] So, where are you these days? You know he can't say.
Well, wherever you are, it's night, which rules out Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Australia Is that our hedge? [CHUCKLES] What? You guys are too smart.
[GASPS] Dad! - Dad! I missed you.
- [JOHN LAUGHS] - [JUDY] You're home.
- [PENNY] Oh, my God! Let me in.
- [WILL] Ew, you guys.
- [JUDY] Gross.
Get a room.
What did you bring me? [LAUGHS] You know how many strings I had to pull to get here? [CELL PHONE CHIMING] [CELL PHONE CHIMING AND VIBRATING] [MAUREEN] Hello? What? When? Astronomers at the Near-Earth Object office discovered a sizable, unknown celestial object that's headed our way.
NASA scientists are working around the clock to track the object's orbital path and to assess the risk of collision.
I have it.
A news briefing has been scheduled I'm gonna take a look, okay, Mom? Mmm-hmm.
[GASPS] It's broken.
Well, that's too bad.
Hey, you took time to grab that? Who were you planning to call? I grabbed a pack.
I did what I was supposed to do.
Hey, kids, it could be worse.
How? [JUDY] Mom, no! Hey, what are you doing? We haven't tested the atmosphere.
You already did.
If the air was toxic, you'd be dead by now.
[SIGHS DEEPLY] [SIGHS] - [BREATHES DEEPLY] - [MAUREEN] Not a bad consolation prize.
First fresh air in months.
Mayday, mayday.
This is Jupiter 2.
Do you read? Over.
Probably should have read the fine print before I launched into space.
Let's figure out where we are.
We evacuated the Resolute halfway between home and the colony Just call it Earth.
It's not your home anymore.
Earth and the colony.
This planet is unlike any we have ever mapped.
Wherever we are, I It's a Goldilocks planet.
Earth-like atmosphere, air-pressure, gravity.
Clearly no lack of water.
It's The odds of that happening are It's like winning the lottery.
The way not dying in a car accident is like winning the lottery.
Until you remember you were in a car accident.
[WILL] We're lost.
No kidding.
I can't raise any of the other Jupiters.
[GRUNTS] The Resolute will send a rescue party, right? I'm sure they'll follow emergency protocol.
Hey, where does it hurt? All across here.
It's from the crash harness.
It's normal.
To you, maybe.
Not to him.
He didn't mean anything by it.
Yeah, maybe he just forgot we're not under his command.
It's okay.
You're all right.
- [EXHALES] - [EXHALES HEAVILY] - [DISTANT RUMBLING] - [ALL GASPING] Is that another crashed ship? You're disappointing me.
Look at the color.
It's bright white If it was rocket fuel, it would be reddish.
Okay, hint.
It's not a chemistry question, it's a geology question.
[RUMBLING CONTINUES] Once that water freezes, the Jupiter's gonna be locked in 50 feet of solid ice.
- How long do we have? - A while.
- How long's "a while"? - It depends.
On hull thermodynamics, water salinity, how much displacement there is It's complicated.
Does it matter? You tell me.
I know you've already done the calculations.
We should talk about this privately.
You two mind letting us in on this? [SIGHS] In six hours, the sun's gonna go down, and indications are, it will drop to 60 degrees below zero, at which point, our power cells will die And so will we.
We can't go anywhere because of your leg.
- I'm still figuring it out.
- What if you can't? Then you leave me here.
You descend the glacier and it'll be warmer down there.
- Mom, stop! - No, Mom! [JOHN] There's another way.
We go back down, get one of the big ion lithiums to recharge the suits.
Not with that tear in your suit.
Airlock's too far, you'll be dead in minutes.
The broken top hatch.
It's closer.
- It'll only be a quick trip in and out.
- No.
He's the only one who'll fit.
Absolutely not.
He did the same training, passed the same tests.
[MAUREEN] You can't train for this.
Actually, you can.
And he did.
- Will, come with me.
- John? - [JOHN] Come on.
- [MAUREEN] John! Okay.
You gotta listen to me.
All you have to do is go back in the same way you came out.
Supply room's right there.
It's easy.
- Okay? Take your jacket off.
Hey, hey, buddy.
It's no different from the EVA tank training you did back home.
Okay? I'm gonna get the suit.
Okay, here we go.
Let's put this back on.
[GRUNTS] - [JUDY] I got this, squirt.
- [MAUREEN] Judy! Judy, get back up here right now.
You know you won't fit through the top hatch.
The top hatch isn't the only way in, Dad.
The supply room is too far from the aft airlock.
It's too risky.
You take risks for a living, Dad.
No, I take orders.
And I'm giving you one right now.
I'm already in.
[MAUREEN CHUCKLES] Listen to me.
She's gonna be okay.
Okay? She's always okay.
It's actually really annoying.
[GRUNTING] The bulkhead's jammed.
I can't get through.
Well, that settles it.
Get back up here right now.
I can make it.
Damn it.
Honey, I don't know when the water's gonna freeze.
I'm fine.
[GRUNTING] [BREATHING HEAVILY] [GRUNTING] Hey, Judy? Judy, why can't we see you by now? - Judy? - I took a Chariot battery.
You're down in the garage? Get out of there right now.
Yeah, good idea.
[WILL] Judy, hurry up.
[PANTING] Hurry! Come on, Judy.
Drop the battery.
Drop the battery! [GRUNTING] Take my hand.
[GRUNTING] [JOHN] Damn it! [GASPING] [JUDY PANTING OVER RADIO] [STUTTERS] I can't move! Get me out of here! Get me out! Get me out! Get me out! [GASPING] Okay.
Okay, listen.
- [JUDY PANTING OVER RADIO] - Control your breathing.
[INHALES DEEPLY] [SLOWS BREATHING] - Penny, get the computer.
- Okay.
[EXHALES] It's gonna be okay.
Your suit will keep you warm.
And you've got at least five hours of oxygen.
So just don't talk any more than you have to, okay? [TAKES STEADYING BREATHS] [GROANS] Hey you're in worse shape than you look.
[BREATHING HEAVILY] Is that a compliment? You need to get some rest.
I need to help my baby girl.
We will.
We will.
[PANTING] [GROANS] [BREATHES RAPIDLY] No more doing anything until I say so.
- [WILL] Is she okay? - [PENNY] Dad? [JOHN] It's okay.
It's okay.
She's just resting.
- Okay.
It's okay.
- [CRYING] Judy - Judy, I just want to say - Don't talk to me, please.
[GRUNTING] - [THUDDING IN ICE ABOVE] - [SIGHS HEAVILY] You're almost to me, right? [PANTING] Yeah, I'm, uh I'm getting there.
[JOHN GRUNTING] [RUMBLING] [PANTING] What is it? The white fire.
I figured out what it is.
I don't have time for this.
I mean, when we crashed, we must have scraped open a pure vein of it.
[GRUNTS] Vein of what? Magnesium.
Magnesium burns hot.
But you know what makes it burn hotter? Ice.
Judy, I gotta go get something.
- You're leaving? - It'll help get you out.
I'll be back.
Gonna have to hold down the fort.
It's actually more of a tent, but You'll be fine.
Just radio me if anything goes wrong.
Will, you coming? Me? Yeah, it's your idea.
And I don't know what I'm looking for.
Come on.
Can I look at this one, please? Thank you.
It looks really expensive.
Mom, it's babysitting money.
It's like being paid to study.
I know we're not doing Secret Santa, but I wanna get a gift for Dad, in case he shows up.
He's done it before.
I just don't want you to be disappointed again.
Well, it's a good thing I got thick skin.
You shouldn't have to have thick skin.
He's been in the worst of it for two years.
Mom, he's made sacrifices.
So should we.
- Okay.
- Can I take that, please? Oh, here.
I'll put it on the card.
Just for the points.
You can pay me when I get the bill.
Sure, okay.
How easy is it to return this? It's fine, as long as it hasn't been worn.
It won't be.
Hey, Mom, I'm gonna go find a present for Judy.
She told me to give it to charity, but she's just trying to make me look bad.
[GRUNTING] [GROANS] [PENNY PANTING OVER RADIO] How's Mom? I thought you weren't supposed to be talking.
[CHUCKLES] Yeah, you'd like that, wouldn't you? Seriously, how is she? She's She's still out.
Uh Breathing and her heart rate is normal.
Keep talking.
Pretty high up on the list of things I never thought I'd hear you say.
You must have some books loaded on your phone.
Do you have anything good? I, in fact, happen to have some of the best books ever written.
Complete Dickens, complete Shakespeare Do you have anything trashy? Why would I bring something trashy to the new world? "We're here to establish a colony to expand the bounds of human experience.
" Hmm.
Well, they say everyone should read Moby-Dick before they die.
[SNIFFLES] - Don't say that.
- Well, do you have it? Of course I have it.
Well, is it any good? I don't know.
Um I haven't gotten to the M's yet.
Well, proceed.
"Call me Ishmael.
" Okay, "Ishmael," if you insist.
Okay, first of all, that wasn't even remotely funny.
And, secondly, you're supposed to be conserving oxygen.
So, quiet.
"Call me Ishmael.
" "Some years ago, never mind how long precisely" [JOHN] Just follow my lead.
Not sure how stable this glacier is.
Don't wanna fall down a crevasse.
Wait, that could happen? [BREATHING HEAVILY] Just follow my lead.
So, uh So what are you into nowadays? I mean, besides magnesium.
[STAMMERS] I'm not.
I just ended up testing into the geology program.
Yeah, well, they do that.
You're good at something, they make you do it.
I remember you used to like baseball.
Yeah, I used to.
Models? Does anyone make models anymore? I like to read.
[JOHN CHUCKLES] I don't think I've read anything except instruction manuals for years.
Oh, damn.
That That's a lot of magnesium.
Well What do you say we go get some that isn't burning? Come on.
[PENNY] "Enveloped in their shaggy watch coats, and with their heads - muffled in woolen "" - [MAUREEN] Penny! What? Mom! Mom, easy.
Easy, easy, easy, easy.
Where's Will? He went with Dad to get some magnesium.
What? Whose idea was that? Will's.
[RUMBLING] What're we looking for? It's that grayish stuff there.
[RUMBLING NEARBY] That's what it looks like before it ignites.
Hey, I'm, uh I'm not gonna blow us up, am I? Not unless you make a spark.
[GRUNTS] - How long have we been gone? - Judy's got plenty of time.
Hey, it happened.
It happened because I froze up.
You jumped through a lot of hoops to get on this mission.
You earned your spot just like everyone else.
I don't feel like everyone else.
I think we've got enough to get her out.
Now, let's get out of here before it blows up.
[RUMBLING] [WILL SCREAMING] - Will! Will! Will! - [DISTANT SCREAMING] [GRUNTING] Will, do you read me? Will! [PENNY] Here.
- [MAUREEN GROANS] - Mom? Hey.
[BREATHES HEAVILY AND GROANS] It's getting worse, isn't it? Feels like my leg is in a vice.
[MAUREEN EXHALES OVER RADIO] Penny, I think we should take a look.
- "We"? - Does the skin feel hard or soft? [GROANS] - [GROANING] - Oh, yeah.
Yeah, her leg is hard as a rock.
Mom, I think you have compartment syndrome.
Edema from the fracture has created too much pressure in your leg.
We have to release it.
Penny's gonna have to do a little procedure, okay? [PENNY] Uh, no, she's not.
- I'll talk her through it.
- It's your call.
Penny, there's a combo syringe in the kit.
It's blue and white.
It'll knock her out.
- Is she out? - [PENNY] Yeah.
We have to do a four-compartment fasciotomy.
How hard is this procedure? I've heard it's pretty straightforward.
You've heard it's pretty straight You haven't done this before? Okay.
Lay out the scalpel and plenty of gauze, okay? Okay.
Yeah, that's fine.
There are four spaces in the lower leg containing muscle - that are surrounded by fascia.
- By what? You know that white stuff you see when you eat steak? That's fascia.
The red stuff, it's muscle.
[SIGHS] It's just like steak.
I like steak.
This is not Mom, this is steak.
Find the bone that sticks out under the kneecap.
Move about two fingers away from it down on either side, - and cut all the way down.
- Okay.
Cut all the way down to where? All the way down to her ankle.
[GROANING] Penny, you have to cut deep, okay? Until you see the muscle.
The steak.
Cut until you see the steak.
The steak.
Okay, it's just a really juicy piece of steak.
I'm done! Done! I did it! Great.
Now you only have to do it three times more.
[GRUNTS] Dad? Dad, come in.
[VOICE ECHOING] Dad! Dad! [BIRDS CALLING NEARBY] [JOHN OVER RADIO] Will, do you read me? Will.
Yeah, I'm here.
Are you hurt? No.
Thank God.
Can you get back up here? No.
I don't think so.
[JOHN] Okay, where are you? What do you see? Are you safe? There's vegetation all over the place.
So there's bound to be things that eat the vegetation and things that eat those things.
Just Just don't touch anything.
Just get down here soon.
Okay? Of course I will.
But I, uh It's gonna take some time.
Time your sister doesn't have.
Wait, you're leaving? I have to go help Judy first.
And then I'm turning around and coming straight back here.
I'll be back soon, I promise.
You're going to be fine.
[SHUDDERING] Will? You got that? You're gonna be fine.
[SNIFFLES] Go save her.
You have to.
I'll be fine.
[SIRENS WAILING IN DISTANCE] [CHUCKLES] It's crazy that they built this thing for real.
Someday we're gonna be on it.
You are.
Hey, the test results haven't come in yet.
Wait until they do.
I froze up.
And the man giving the test made a face when I stepped out of the tank.
He made a face at me, too.
It's their job.
To make faces.
If I didn't pass, then that means they're gonna make me stay behind.
So, we need to get something clear.
Look at me.
There's a rule that's written in stone.
And it is never broken.
The Robinsons stick together.
What are you doing? I'll just borrow your manuals when they come in.
[JUDY] All right, let's do this.
[SIGHS] - Do I paint first or - [WILL] Use this to trim the edges.
[JUDY] To trim the edges.
[GASPS SOFTLY] When you were little, I always loved to watch you sleep.
I don't think you should be moving around.
Well, it's excellent work.
No, Judy did the hard part.
The studying and the exams You're all that matters, you know.
You three.
It's why we left.
I wanted to find a home that was worthy of you.
We're gonna make it.
Of course we are.
[BREATHES DEEPLY] Every problem has a solution.
[CLEARS THROAT] So, tell your sisters that we're going out for Mexican.
Yeah, I heard colony tortillas leave a funny aftertaste because of the hybrid corn.
We're celebrating.
[STATIC] Calling any survivors.
- Come in.
- [STATIC] Do you copy? - [SIGHS] - [DISTANT ANIMAL CALL] [EXHALES] Hello? Hello? Is anyone there? [SCREECHING OVER RADIO] That's not a Jupiter.
This is Will Robinson of the 24th Colonist Group.
I'm making a record of this because it seems I'm the first human to discover evidence of an alien intelligence.
It It appears it crashed when we did.
Why? I don't know why.
I don't even know why we crashed.
The [GRUNTS] The ship has sustained heavy amounts of damage and appears to be non-functional.
No sign of any pa passengers.
- [RUSTLING] - [GASPS] [PANTING] [WILL] Hello? Anyone there? [GRUNTING] [PANTING] [GASPING AND PANTING] [STAMMERS] How How can you see me? [PANTING] [SCREAMS] No! No! No.
[PANTING] [GASPING] Judy, I'm back.
I'm gonna get you out of there.
- Where's Will? - I'm gonna go back for him.
What? What happened? We got separated, but he's okay.
You just left him there? I can only save one child at a time.
Better get back.
[GRUNTS] Penny, how much air does she have left? [PENNY] Sixty-eight minutes.
Close your eyes.
Keep them closed.
It's working.
Thank God.
It was Will's idea.
I know.
He thinks he doesn't deserve to be here.
I'll discuss that with him the next time I see him.
When do you think that might be? [INDISTINCT CHATTER] Thanks.
You're not that easy to find these days.
Well, that's the way they like it.
What with everything that's going on.
- How are the kids? - Uh, everybody's fine.
They miss me? I don't know.
Why are you calling? I have good news.
We have been accepted into the 24th Colonist Group.
- Wow.
- Yeah.
[CHUCKLES] What's the timetable on that? Uh, a month.
The kids performed sensationally.
You should be proud of them.
I am.
I am.
Of course I am.
So, I sent you some papers and I just need you to sign them and send them back.
So, you're finally filing for divorce? No.
I That doesn't seem necessary anymore.
I need your permission so that they can go.
You wanna take my kids away from me? You already left, John.
- Not for forever.
- After everything that's happened, you have this one chance to do what's best for them.
Just sign the papers please.
This isn't about us.
Dad, this is Will.
Do you read me? I'm kind of in a lot of danger here.
Probably not as much danger as before, but definitely still in danger.
[SCREECHING OVER SPEAKER] That noise, I've heard it before.
It's coming from your ship.
Isn't it? Who knows if you can even understand me.
[GASPS] Whoa.
Guess you've never seen anything like that either.
My name's Will Robinson, by the way.
Wait what's happening to your lights? Oh You're dying.
Aren't you? - [CRACKLING] - [GASPS] [MAUREEN] It's working, honey.
Hold tight.
[JUDY] Oh, God.
That feels good.
It's like my hand's been asleep for a month.
- [CHUCKLES] - It's okay, the feeling will come back.
- Magnesium.
- Magnesium.
- Okay.
- Torch.
Close your eyes.
[THUNDER CRACKING] It's raining.
It's raining, Dad.
Oh, no, no, no! Faster! Faster! It's filling up.
It's It's not raining, is it? [PANTING] Yes.
It is.
[PENNY] Mom, the temperature's dropping! Oh, oh Give me the magnesium.
[MAUREEN] We're gonna get you out.
[GASPING SOBS] She's strong.
She has more time.
Dig! Come on! Dig! Coming, baby! [GRUNTS] [PANTING] Dad.
Dad, come in.
Dad, there's a fire and and I can't get out.
Dad, come in.
No point in you dying, too.
[SHUDDERING] [ALL GRUNTING] [HYSTERICAL SOBS] [JUDY] Will! Will! [GASPING] It's not his fault! He's gonna be Don't talk! Just don't talk.
Dad! [COMPUTER BEEPS] We're here.
[COMPUTER BEEPING] I'm here, baby.
- [SOBS, SNIFFLES] - [MAUREEN] We're here.
We're here.
We're right here.
We're here.
We're here.
- Will? - It's okay.
He's He's with me.
Can you help her? Please? [MAUREEN GASPS] [GRUNTING] [JUDY GASPING] [JOHN] I got you.
- It's okay.
- Judy! - [JOHN] I've got you.
- [PENNY] Judy! - [JOHN] Breathe! - [GASPING] Breathe, baby! Breathe! [GASPS AND LAUGHS] [CRYING] Mom! - It's okay.
I got you.
- Mom.
It's okay.
It's okay.
Can you do something so we don't freeze? [ALARM SOUNDING] [AUTOMATED VOICE] All Resolute colonists, please proceed to your assigned Jupiter pods.
Thank you for remaining calm.
- [INDISTINCT CHATTER] - [ALARM CONTINUES] It's just a temporary evacuation.
I'm sure they'll have the damage repaired soon.
It seems like an overreaction.
The sooner we seal the breach, the sooner we can get back to bitching about being underpaid.
We're being paid a fortune.
Ah, that was before we had a chance of being sucked out into space.
[OVERLAPPING ALARMS] [NEARBY SCREAMING] - [WOMAN SHRIEKS] - [WEAPON FIRING] Get down! Get down! It's coming, it's killing everybody! "It"? [PEOPLE SCREAMING] [MAN] Get him off! Something breached the hull! Oh, God.
[BREATHING HEAVILY] Let me help you.
- Oh, thank you.
Thank you.
- Here.
Get your coat off.
Can you walk? - No, I can't walk.
- Oh, I'm so sorry.
Hey, wait.
What are you doing? - I'm sorry.
- What? What are you doing? - [SCREAMS CONTINUE] - You can't leave me here! Come back! [AUTOMATED VOICE] All Resolute colonists, please proceed to your assigned Jupiter pods.
- Thank you for remaining calm.
- We need to get off this ship.
The Jupiters are for families only.
- Will you marry me? - [CHUCKLES] Come on.
- You fixing this? - Yeah.
Yeah, this one's yours? It's fixed.
It's good to go.
See? There you go.
All Resolute colonists, please proceed to your assigned Jupiter pods.
Thank you for remaining calm.
There's always room for a mechanic or two.
What about the rest of your family? - They won't be coming.
- Oh.
Sorry, Miss Doctor.
