Lost in Space (2018) s02e02 Episode Script


Okay, so what now? [SIGHS.]
Nothing's changed.
We stick to the plan.
Oh, so getting stuck at the edge of a massive alien waterfall was part of the plan? The lightning storm should be starting in 97 minutes, give or take.
We need to be ready to spark the engines when that happens.
So does everybody remember their assignments? Siphon methane from the air and fill up our tanks.
Yeah, I got the sails.
We'll break down the mast and stow the rigging below.
Leave the lines for me.
If we're gonna catch the power from the storm, I need every inch I can get for the kite.
- Don! - Present.
- Do you know what you're doing? - Yes.
Just sounds cooler when you say it.
Penny, just make sure Don has everything he needs to clear us for launch.
- Are we not gonna talk about it? - What? The giant metal trench in the middle of the planet.
Something like that doesn't just happen.
Someone built it.
Don't you wanna know who? Of course I do, but right now, we need to focus on the fact that 16 billion joules of energy are about to strike right where we're standing.
All in favor of finding a new place to stand! [MAUREEN.]
As long we stay inside the Jupiter, we'll be fine.
The ship will act as a Faraday cage, sending the energy around us instead of through us.
We'll look into what's down there.
Soon as we're airborne.
Excuse me.
I didn't get a job.
Your job is to do nothing and touch nothing.
If we ever need to sail again, we'll call you.
All right, let's get to it.
She never likes it when someone else saves the day.
You know, I was talking to Will yesterday and he told me that Ben Franklin wasn't the only one to try the kite experiment, that a man named Georg Reichmann tried it a couple weeks later.
Yeah? History books never talk about the second guy.
That's because lightning jumped to his forehead, killing him instantly.
Will needs to learn to keep some things to himself.
- [DON.]
Hey! - [GASPS.]
Why are you hugging the wall? - Do you hear that? - [TICKING CONTINUES.]
- What, the ticking? - Yeah.
Yeah, it's probably one of the rotators in the cooling slats.
As it happens, when you turn a spaceship into a submarine, it ticks! [JOHN VIA RADIO.]
Hey, Will! How's it coming with that methane filter? [WILL VIA RADIO.]
Give me a sec, I'm heading to the cockpit now.
What are you doing in here? Just keeping out of the way.
I've always been fascinated by seaweed.
People treat it like floating garbage, but what they don't realize is they use it everyday.
In their toothpastes, lotions, shampoos.
All the stuff that makes 'em pretty.
It's like a lot of things, I guess.
Only appreciated when you learn how helpful they can be.
Are you honestly looking to be appreciated for navigating us through that storm? - It was kind of a big deal.
You were doing it to save yourself.
Not my family, not me [SIGHS.]
just you.
Look at him! Such a big boy now.
I notice you never once visited me while I was locked up.
We have nothing to talk about.
Ah, of course we do.
You and I we're the only ones who know what it's like to be connected to the robot.
You were not connected to him.
You were using him.
Is there a difference? The robot's job is to give the master what he wants.
I wanted a bodyguard, you wanted a friend.
Excuse me.
I have work to do.
Oh, you poor girl! Look what they've done to you, these Robinsons! This is an abusive relationship.
Gotta get you a safe word.
Hand it over.
Got it.
Do you need any help? Actually, yes.
You got a crowbar in there or something? I need to get this kelp-looking stuff off the ship.
Well, it's a good thing I was here.
I don't know what you would've done if I wasn't around to hand you this piece of metal.
Thank you.
Is it just me or does it feel like Mom always gives me the dummy jobs? Just so I understand the question, helping me is the dummy job? I didn't mean it that way.
It's just Will always gets the smart jobs, and Judy always gets the tough jobs, then I get the jobs that literally anybody else could do.
Ugh, you're looking at this all wrong, Penny.
Flying under the radar is a good thing.
It's actually one of my core principles.
It's right up there with "Never raise your hand", "Always sit in the back" and "Never, ever, be too good at anything".
- And that works for you? - [DON.]
Until I met you people.
Bunch of over-achievers.
Should've known you'd get me into trouble.
Don, how's it going? [SIGHS.]
Speaking of which Everything checking out? [DON.]
Few bumps and scrapes here and there.
She could use a paint job, but she'll fly.
I just gotta get this stuff off that's clinging to the side of the ship.
Oh yeah, the kelp.
We saw some of that building up on the bow.
It's in there pretty strong.
I think it'll burn in the atmosphere, but I wanna make sure it doesn't mess with the thrusters.
Okay, let me know if you want me to come down and take a look at anything.
Okay! You know what, Penny, I need something stronger than this.
Go inside, check in to see - Ow! - [PENNY.]
What? What's wrong? The kelp, it bit me! What the hell is this stuff? - Should I get Judy? - No, no, no, no No, It's fine.
My leg though It, like, feels numb.
- Is it cutting off your circulation? - I don't know [DON GRUNTING AND YELPING.]
Oh, God! I can't move my leg! - Mom! - Penny? - [MAUREEN.]
Penny? Are you okay? - [PENNY OVER RADIO.]
Mom! Mom! [GRUNTS.]
John, the kite! No, no, no, no! [GRUNTS.]
Go, go-go, go-go! [GRUNTS.]
Hold on! Don! Give me your arm.
- Mom? I'm slipping! - I got you.
Careful! The kelp Don't let it touch you! Don't touch it! Mom! Mom, I'm losing it! Use your legs! Fight the current! - Mom, Mom, it's too strong! Mom! - I'm coming! - [MAUREEN.]
Hold on, Penny! - Will, Judy, get down to the airlock! [SCREAMING.]
Mom! Penny! Maureen! No! [JOHN.]
Maureen, Penny, come in.
Do you copy? [PANTING.]
We're okay.
- [PENNY.]
What do we do now? - [MAUREEN OVER RADIO.]
We're okay! - [SIGHS.]
Thank you.
I don't think this is what "okay" is supposed to feel like.
We're breathing, we're in one piece This is exactly what "okay" is supposed to feel like.
Check your suits for compromise.
Punctures, cracked glass, damaged filtration.
Um Good! We're good.
We're good, we're good.
Are we still not talking about this place? I'm actually kind of okay with that.
That must be why the lightning was drawn here.
The metal It must act like some kind of conductor.
Hey, guys? I don't like you being down there on your own.
I'm gonna try and find a way to get down to you.
John, no.
Stay up there, we're fine! We just gotta We just need to find a way back up, somehow.
Wow, this is embarrassing.
Hey, don't touch the kelp.
- [WILL.]
I see it.
- Just don't take a picture of me! Or tell anyone about this - I have a reputation to uphold! - [JUDY.]
Okay, stop talking.
There we go.
Mom and Penny, they went over the edge.
- [JUDY.]
I know, Dad said they're okay.
- [DON.]
Ow! Hey, why don't you go help them? I can handle this.
- You sure? - [DON.]
Yeah, you sure? 'Cause I'm having a hard time feeling my everything.
Just go.
Okay? Hey, radio if you need me.
- Okay? - Ow! Yeah, steady.
I have an idea.
The kite.
Take it down, attach it, tie it off, and then lower the other end down to us.
It should be long enough to reach.
- [JOHN.]
Already on it! - Great minds.
We've got, uh Sixty-eight? No, 67! Sixty-seven minutes.
So once we get back up, we'll just relaunch the kite, ready before the lightning hits.
Okay, going as fast as I can.
- Please be careful.
- Stop moving! I'm just saying, that's my favorite leg! That's why I have to cut the stuff off, because whatever toxin is affecting your body is coming from there.
Something's happening.
Something's happening, I can't feel my head.
Good If I make a mistake, then it won't hurt.
That's not funny.
Dad Dad, careful.
Almost there.
Dad! Dad! [GROANS.]
John, are you okay? I'm okay.
Come on.
Mom Mom, look, the kite.
Are we stuck down here? No.
We're We're okay.
We've got time.
John? [JOHN.]
Yeah, I'm here.
It's okay, we'll just We'll just have to find another way.
I know I know.
Use Will and Judy, put your heads together.
And we'll do the same down here.
Hey, I'll see you soon, okay? See you soon.
We'll figure it out.
Okay? Okay.
We'll figure something out.
What does your mom always say? Every problem has a solution.
Can you make yourself useful and help clean this stuff up? I'd love to, but your mother specifically ordered me not to tou Well, my mother is not here right now! - Must be nice being in charge for once.
- Yeah, stick to your chores.
Don, I think you're going into anaphylactic shock.
I need to mitigate the spread of the toxin before it reaches your brain, so I'm gonna give you a blood transfusion, okay? My hero.
No, not exactly.
There's only one person here that has the same blood type and it's not me.
I'd be honored to donate to such a worthy cause.
Absolutely not.
This is serious, Don.
It's either her or I send you into a medically induced coma.
- You won't survive any other way.
The surface is too slick to climb.
There's nowhere to grip.
What about all the rigging from the sails? Can we build some kind of scaffolding? That'll give us 30 feet at the most.
Still have 120 feet to go.
I was thinking Even if we make it up in time, without that kite, we will not be able to jump-start our engine.
I know.
If we can't get up before the lightning hits, we won't be able to survive.
I don't need more problems right now, Penny, I need solutions.
I'm sorry, it's just No, it's fine.
I get it.
- No, I shouldn't have said it like that.
- It's fine.
I'd be frustrated too.
I mean, of all your kids to get stuck with, you got stuck with me, so - Penny, that has nothing to do with - Come on.
You wouldn't rather have Will here to bounce around geometrical formulas? Geometry isn't gonna get us out of this.
And if Will was here, he would know that.
Judy? She would've run 30 miles by now and found some kind of tree with space leaves - strong enough to build a space ladder.
- Stop it.
Each of you have talents that make you unique.
It's just that some talents are more useful than others.
Enough! Hope your father's having more luck than we are.
It's nowhere near enough to reach them! Did you get the cargo netting? [SIGHS.]
I got everything.
There must be another way.
Well, if there is, I haven't found it yet.
You thinking about the robot? [BREATHES HEAVILY.]
I wish he was here too.
You know, when I was deployed, there were some hard days.
But what kept me going was the thought of seeing you.
I knew I would do whatever it took to get back to you.
I think the robot feels the same way.
And I also know, no matter how crazy the world got, you'd be okay.
Because you, your mom, your sisters, you keep each other safe.
And that's what we got to do right now.
- We have to.
- Wait! - That's it.
- What is? Keep each other safe! [PANTS.]
Mom said that we'd be safe in here when the lightning strikes, because the Jupiter will act as a Faraday cage.
I know, but your mom and your sister aren't in it.
So let's get them one of their own.
We can't build a Faraday cage down here.
It's a good idea, but we don't have enough time to construct anything sound enough [WILL.]
We don't have to build it, Mom.
We already have one.
In the garage.
- The Chariot! - We just have to get it down.
Could that work? We never officially tested it for the temperature, but yeah, it should! I know it doesn't exactly solve our kite problem.
But at least you guys will be safe.
Wait! Wait! Maybe Maybe we don't need the kite.
The Chariot's winch cable is conductive metal.
If we use it to lower the Chariot down, then maybe we could kill two birds with one stone.
Just to clarify, we are not the two birds being killed, right? Hot wire the other end of the winch cable to our engine, and then when the lightning hits, it'll act like Jumper cables, I get it.
But there's one problem with your plan Well, there's more than one, but the first one What's that? Chariot's on the Jupiter, in the garage.
I know! Which is underwater.
I guess it's a good thing I married a Navy Seal.
So what happens when we open up the ramp? [JOHN.]
Besides turning the garage into a toxic aquarium? I mean, are we sure the Chariot won't just sink? Chariot's no different than the ACVs Marines would drop off of carriers.
It's all about buoyancy.
Something weighs less than the liquid it's displacing, it'll float.
Okay, we good? We need to seal the garage so we don't flood the rest of the ship.
All right, be right there! [DISTANT METAL CREAKING.]
Will, come on! All clear? Yeah! I think so! Floodgates open in three, two, one.
That doesn't sound right.
- No, it does not.
- Must be stuck.
- On what? [JOHN.]
Oh, great.
Okay, I just need the both of you to relax - and let the transfusion run its course.
- Hey, Jude.
What do you use to cut that stuff off Don's leg? [STAMMERS.]
Um, a A plasma torch, why? - How many do we have? - Dad! Kelp's blocking the garage.
We can't open it.
Why would you need to open the garage, it's underwater? Look, I don't have time to explain.
I just gotta get this done and I need your help.
Are they gonna be okay for a few minutes? Yeah, yeah.
Let's go.
Alone at last.
What's taking them so long? The Chariot should be down by now.
Thirty-six minutes.
I'm sure they're fine.
Will and Judy are up there to help him figure it out.
- You know, you saved us too.
- When? In the diamond storm.
We were stuck and you rescued us.
I disobeyed you and basically stole the Chariot.
My point is you saved us.
my special skill is misbehaving? You must be so proud.
Is there something going on with you that I'm supposed to know about? Hey! Since when don't we talk to each other? What'd you think about my book? - What? - My book.
Will gave us all copies and I've heard from everyone else.
Did you read it? Of course I did.
Did you have a favorite part? I I think it It was, um It was just seeing how much you've grown as a writer.
Well, thank you.
I can't wait to see what you write about this place! A few facts wrong here and there, but her voice is strong.
And she likes my hair which is nice.
It's full of revelations.
For example, Judy dreams of moving away from home.
Someone named Vijay Dhar is apparently a bad kisser.
And Don West, why turns out he's a smuggler.
Whatever happens, don't touch the kelp It's toxic.
Twenty-nine minutes! [JOHN.]
Don't worry about checking the time.
I set an alert so we're all on the same count.
Keep going! Damn, this stuff is strong.
All this time, pretending that you're better than me, when in reality, we're two peas in a pod.
Both of us outsiders, rejected from the colony, no family of our own.
So we We orbit the Robinsons like two [SLURS.]
Please stop talking.
You're getting your speech back, that's progress.
You and I are nothing alike.
And there's one big difference.
If we make it to civilization, I'm going back to work and you'll go straight to jail.
Is that so? Hmm.
I wonder how your superiors would feel if they knew that when we first met, you were trying to steal a Jupiter.
The Resolute was in need of repair, instead of doing your job, you were running away.
And they may be able to overlook that but the thing is I'm a criminal, and you aided and abetted my escape.
- That was different.
I didn't know - [SMITH.]
Oh, come on, Don.
You saw me squeeze into that space suit that clearly wasn't my size.
And you can tell yourself whatever you want, but deep down, you knew.
And I'm pretty sure they don't let accomplices have their jobs back.
You're so lucky I can't move right now.
Here's how this is gonna work.
If we make it back to civilization, I expect there's going to be trouble headed my way, so I expect your cooperation, Don.
I expect you to say that I am whoever they say I am.
I expect loyalty, Don.
After all, we're blood brothers now.
How come you didn't tell me Mom and Penny were in this much trouble? You were helping Don.
I didn't wanna pull you away.
If I would've known, I could've helped you.
- Hey, Jude! - [GRUNTS.]
Judy! You okay? - [JOHN.]
You okay? - Yeah.
- You sure? - Yeah, it didn't puncture my suit.
Okay, you two, head up top.
I'll finish off.
No, Dad.
It'll go much faster with all of us.
This is too dangerous.
Dad, don't treat me like a kid! [JOHN.]
I'm not treating you like a kid, I'm treating you like a doctor The only one we have.
If anything happens, we're going to need you.
You trust me to save people's lives, but not to help you? Jude, this is not about trust! It's about being smart.
Now, go! Go! [WILL.]
Judy, come on.
- Hurry, this way! We gotta go! - [JUDY.]
Hey, he's gonna be okay.
Judy, no! [JUDY.]
Dad! No, baby, get up! Go! Move! [GRUNTS.]
- We're not done, come on! - [JUDY.]
Will, go! [GRUNTS.]
Mom, Penny.
- Will? The Chariot, we got it out.
Okay, we'll be ready! There it is.
There it is! Great job, you guys.
Great job! Did you have trouble getting it out? [JOHN.]
Nothing we couldn't handle.
Okay, John, once the lightning hits, you lift off.
Okay? There's no telling how long the Jupiter can withstand that kind of strike.
Come on, come on, come on, come on.
Come on, come on, come on.
Okay, come on.
- [PENNY.]
What? What happened? Why did it stop? John? That's the end of the cable.
What? Are you sure? Yeah! You said there was enough.
There should've been! Maybe the Jupiter shifted, or Or maybe the cable got caught around [DISTANT THUNDER RUMBLING.]
We don't have time to figure it out.
We just need to get up there.
How? It's gotta be at least 30 feet.
Right, 30 feet.
Thirty feet, 30 feet Wait! Penny figured it out.
You figured it out.
- I did? - The rigging from the sails! Look, you may have me over a barrel, but the Robinson's are gonna turn you in the first chance they get.
It doesn't matter what I say or who I say it to.
Let me worry about the Robinsons.
I've been living with them for seven months.
I know exactly what they think about you.
So do I, but I don't need all of them, just one.
Divide and conquer, that's your plan? Hah.
Guess what? It's not gonna happen, lady.
And you don't need a book to tell you that.
Because despite their differences [PENNY.]
Come on, Mom.
or their disagreements when the rubber meets the road this family sticks together.
So go ahead, blackmail me.
But at the end of the day, it doesn't matter if I have your back, because the Robinsons never will.
- We'll see about that.
You got it.
Atmospheric event in 90 seconds.
Maureen, talk to me! We're getting there! [GRUNTING.]
How close? We'll make it! - [GRUNTING.]
Hold on! Penny, you've got to keep going! [PENNY.]
I'm trying.
You can make it, I know you can.
Will, Judy, strap in.
Maureen, I'm gonna be with you all the way.
You hear me? [MAUREEN OVER RADIO.]
We're almost there! [JOHN OVER RADIO.]
Stay with me.
Let me know when you're in the Chariot.
I'm in! Mom's right behind me.
Oh, my God.
Lightning hit What happened? Electricity interfering with the radio waves.
- I'll go check on them.
- [JOHN.]
No! Will, strap in.
We're gonna launch as soon as the lightning hits.
- But what about Mom and Pen - They'll be there! [BOTH WHIMPERING.]
The doors The doors, like, why are they taking so long? [WHIMPERING.]
Penny, I I didn't read your book.
- I know.
- But I will.
I will First thing, I promise.
Come here.
I love you.
- We got juice! - [JOHN.]
- Bring them in.
- All right.
Almost there.
Fifteen Mom? - [JUDY.]
Ten - [WILL.]
Penny? Do you hear me? Five Mom! Penny! Can you hear me? We have to go check on them.
No, wait until the ramp's up! Judy? All right, oxygen level restored.
Setting auto-pilot.
Let's go! Let's go! [STEAM HISSING.]
Mom! Penny! [JOHN.]
Come on! [GRUNTING.]
Penny! Mom, Penny, please.
Maureen? [WILL.]
Penny? - [JOHN.]
Hey! - [INHALES.]
Penny! - [JOHN.]
Hey! - Penny! [SOBBING.]
- Are you okay? You okay? - Oh, oh! You know, right now that island we left back there isn't looking so bad.
Really? You got jokes now? [CHUCKLES.]
Mwah! Where's Will? - [MAUREEN CHUCKLING.]
- Mom! Hi Oh! Hey, Dad, um Look, I just wanted to say that, uh Look, I'm sorry, but I'm 19 and I can handle a lot more than you're letting me.
I know.
I know, but here's the thing, Jude.
A part of being an adult is realizing just because you can do something doesn't always mean you should.
- [SIGHS.]
- Huh? [SIGHS.]
Yeah, like, uh, putting a mast on top of the Jupiter? [CHUCKLING SOFTLY.]
Come on, let's get upstairs.
- Does anyone else hear that? - [MAUREEN.]
Hear what? That sound.
I've been hearing it all day.
- Will! Will, look out! - [JOHN.]
Will, get down! Will! What the hell is that thing doing here? It's from when we were attacked by the SAR.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
What's a SAR? [WILL, PENNY, JUDY.]
Second Alien Robot.
Okay, in my defense, we have been attacked by a lot of things.
All this time it's been in here.
It must've been stuck and jarred loose from when we flooded the garage.
So has it been alive this whole time? [WILL.]
Or did something turn it on? Possibly The metal in the trench There were these glyphs carved into it, and I-I can't be sure, but they looked like the markings On the robot? And his ship.
What does that mean? It means whoever made him, made this place too.
Is that good or bad? I really cannot tell the difference anymore.
Maybe if we go back down there and studied the glyphs, we can find a clue about Only place we are going is as far away from here as possible.
But you said once we got in I know what I said! But right now, we have bigger problems than the robot.
Like what? Like how many more of them are out there.
Okay, let's get upstairs.
We need to prep for orbit.
- But, what about [SIGHS.]
- Upstairs now.
I'll be right up, I just - [SIGHS.]
- I know.
This is how it normally works When you launch, someone announces, "Hey, we're about to take-off, so you might wanna strap in".
Or, for example, "Hey, if you gotta go pee-pee, you might wanna do it now, because it's gonna be a while" We were fine, don't listen to him.
No, no, no.
You were fine! I couldn't hold on.
Look, it's like I've got flippers.
Ow! [JUDY.]
Welcome back.
You're in recovery.
Hey, Penny.
Nice work, by the way.
- You read it? Of course.
I mean, didn't everybody? Did you have a favorite part? [SIGHS.]
There was a line Um, I'm forgetting what it was exactly, but Oh, wait! Now, I remember.
"The irony of all this is I almost died trying to get somewhere I never even wanted to go".
Those words really stuck with me.
Is it true though, that you never wanted to leave Earth? It doesn't really matter anymore.
Of course, it does.
Did you ever consider just staying behind? On my own? You always struck me as a girl who could take care of herself.
My family would never let me You also strike me as a girl who doesn't always need permission.
Anyway, go on, get your rest.
Do you mind if I hold onto this? It's the only thing onboard I haven't read three times.
Yeah, thanks for reading it.
My pleasure.
Hey! I brought you something.
I have mine.
It's Mom's.
So why you giving it to me? She took a couple of pictures of the symbols we saw in the trench.
Figured you would wanna see it.
Thanks! Hey, you published my book.
If that isn't worth a little petty larceny, I don't know what is.
Penny? If the robot can't find us, I'm gonna find him.
Any idea what I'm looking at? Working on it.
What is that? [MAUREEN.]
I don't know.
It's large.
Could be a meteor.
Sure it is.
Let me guess, it's heading straight towards us.
No, it isn't.
What's wrong? Nothing.
It's not an alarm, it's a it's an audio signature.
Every ship has what is essentially a sonic watermark so it can be identified in space.
And so who does this one belong to? [BEEPING.]
It's It's the Resolute.
- It's the Resolute! - [JOHN.]
It's the Resolute! [PENNY.]
What? Is it close? No I mean, no, not particularly, but we can get there.
Okay, okay.
Come on, everybody.
Strap in! - [WILL.]
We're on the move! - [JOHN.]
