Made for Love (2021) s02e05 Episode Script

You're Not the First

I think, uh, we packed a lifetime of travel in the last two days.
What a whirlwind, huh? Ahh.
But, uh, I've had my fill.
When Hazel comes back, I'm gonna tell her everything.
Hello? Do you hear something? Dad.
Dad! Hazel? Dad, it's me.
Byron trapped me.
I need your help.
You get that to Jasper.
He'll know how to turn it on.
And what happens once it's turned on? We storm the castle and you end up being the hero who took down Byron Gogol.
Not ready to go home yet.
It was lovely to be out in the world.
I liked it.
Me too.
I wish we did it more often.
I would like that.
Let's start now.
Let's go somewhere else now.
You know what? Okay.
I wanna go to Montana.
I wanna see where you grew up.
To Dutton? You you wanna go you wanna go to Dutton? Mm-hmm.
The first time that you brought me back to the Hub, you knew everything about my history, but I didn't know anything about yours, and I still don't.
And I think I might feel differently about going back to the Hub if I know who I'm going back with.
- You know? - I'm I'm so sorry.
Y-you're saying you wanna go to Dutton? - Yeah.
- Like, now? Is that I wanna go.
No more secrets.
Right? Right yeah.
Dutton to Dutton! I'll go tell the pilot right now.
So who's gonna be there? Um my dad, I guess.
And you haven't seen him since I was 16.
You haven't had any contact with your dad since then? I don't know what you really expect, uh, out of meeting my dad.
I just wanna warn you he will disappoint you, 'cause he will make sure of it.
People can change.
Dad wouldn't have fancy equipment.
Someone else must be living here.
The mailbox says Benson.
It does.
Looks exactly the same.
Well, come on.
Let's knock on the door.
Maybe knock a little louder.
Side window was open.
Come on in.
Come on.
I coulda told you coming back to the Hub was a trap.
We wouldn't be in this mess if you would've just talked to me, instead taking it upon yourself to roofie me every day.
You're right.
I'm sorry.
- I was wrong.
- What? Love sometimes inspires us to do unloving things.
What, do you you got time to think in there or something? I guess your husband sticking you in a computer and taking your body to Washington, D.
broadens your perspective a little.
You feel okay? You seem a little off.
I'm not okay.
I'm trapped in a computer, Dad.
Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait if if you're in there, then who's calling and checking on me? Whoever he put in my body.
Probably some Hub worker.
Watch this.
I don't have a chip in my head.
Sorry to disappoint the tabloids.
I know that'd make a great story.
All right, all right.
Turn it off.
Turn it off.
This whole place is frickin' cuckoo.
- I have a plan.
- Uh-oh.
It's gonna sound a little brutal at first, but it is the only way to get me out of here.
I need a body.
You want me to to kill someone? No, no, no, no.
I just need a a living body that I can borrow temporary housing until I can get my real body back.
What happens to that person when you're Nothing.
They just get paused.
All right, what what do I have to do, exactly? I cannot picture you living here.
Neither can I.
It's different than I expected.
- It's homey.
- I'll see if he's upstairs.
Turn around.
Nice and slow.
Alice? Hazel.
Um - who are you? - Greg Benson.
You wanna tell me why the fuck you're in my house? Aaron, put the gun down.
That's my wife.
Put the gun down, Aaron.
He said that he's Greg Benson.
- That is my brother, Aaron.
- Hi.
And apparently he's been, uh, using my name.
You weren't using it.
Where's Dad? He's outside.
Do you want to see him? I'd like that.
When did this happen? You honestly don't know? I don't.
I don't know.
Drank himself to death.
Not surprising.
Why didn't you ever reach out? Really? You fuckin' with me right now? You don't remember me coming to you when dad was about to lose the farm? Rather than talking to me like a human being, you sent some jerk to pay me off.
But it turns out it was actually perfect timing 'cause poor old Aaron was about to go off to jail.
And don't worry.
It was just a misunderstanding.
Turns out, being Greg Benson suits me.
I'm sorry to hear about that.
We'll be on our way.
Byron, are you okay? He's not a good person.
I don't know what he's up to, but I don't wanna know.
We we came all this way, though.
Yeah, and he can't be trusted.
You haven't seen each other since you were kids.
- Right? - Yeah, we got that It was a mistake coming here.
Yeah, but he's your only family that you have left.
You don't wanna try? Please? Guys, why don't you stay for dinner? You like chicken? So you're saying that humans are fundamentally self-absorbed? I'm sympathizing.
An ego is a horrible cage to be trapped inside even worse than a tank And with you knowing so much, is it hard with other dolphins? The hardest part is everyone in here's a boring shag.
Listen, Zelda.
You trust me, right? I've been thinking a lot on what you said about Fiffany and Hazel escaping through the tunnel.
Are there more? There are a few underwater access tunnels I could show you.
As in, I I come in and swim with you? No.
We'll take my town car.
Of course swim, you daft wanker.
Oh, God.
Is Donnie here? Every time we break up, he does this.
Donnie, your freaky-ass Tinder grandma rebound pussy's here in a nun costume.
Grandma? Excuse you.
What the hell are you talkin' about? Holy shit.
You're the unhinged nun! Come in, come in.
Mm, uh, I got your message.
So he's sliding in your DMs.
It's cool.
You ever been beat up by a celibate, menopausal woman? You said you had info on Hazel.
Have a seat.
A while back, Hazel Gogol was outside my house and Byron Gogol called my phone.
Had me tell Hazel that she was "made for love," and she was looking rough blood all over her face.
I knew it! That's more proof.
'Cause she is brainwashed now, honey.
And she's denyin' it all over the news.
Plus, I think Byron's got my friend Herb, too.
We've got to help them.
I have a lead, but I think the feds are followin' me.
So I need to borrow a car that's not registered to me.
Mine's in the shop.
But Could we swap cars for a few days? Hell no.
But for the right price, I will drive you.
Where are we going? Montana.
So who wants to be my sous chef? Hazel, wanna pluck or shuck? Hazel, do you actually, do you wanna call your dad and just check in? I can help here.
Well, now, that I wanna see.
But, yes, I'll be very quick.
Well, you look the same.
Hazel thinks we haven't seen each other since we were kids.
Still weaving those tangled webs, huh? - So does she know about - I'll tell her, eventually.
I'm just asking you not to say anything.
As a favor.
Come on! Hoof it! I'm coming! Ah, my fucking nose! Lyle, you hit a wall! Let's try and find a corner or a door.
- Hey, hey, hey, hey.
- Ah, ooh.
- Oh, hey, Fiff.
- Huh? What is this? Where are we? Another circle of hell.
Huh? The pasture cube has different landscapes with different mindfucks.
Holy shit.
The scenery change must have disoriented the Dwellers.
They're gone.
Look, we lost 'em! Ha.
I'm not sure how much longer I can take this, Lyle.
I am exhausted and I am thirsty.
Okay, okay.
Come on.
I'll get you some water.
Come sit down.
Take a few deep breaths, go to a happy place where dolphins live amongst us and go to cafes and shit.
You think this is funny? Oh, no.
What if that's the imposter calling? - Hello.
- Hi, Dad.
Dad? - Are you okay? - Yeah, hi.
I, uh, can't talk right now.
I got some chili on the stove.
Oh, okay.
Well, I just wanna let you know that Bangles and I - are gonna be another night - Such great news, have fun.
How about a toast? To family.
To family.
To family.
So who's Alice? Alice? She's just someone that we used to know.
- Yeah.
- You know, you could be her sister.
- Mm.
- How long has it been exactly since you guys have seen each other? Mom left when I was eight and took Aaron with her.
- Mm.
- Dad always complained that he was left with the runt.
Trust me.
You had the better deal.
With Mom, I never knew where I was gonna sleep at night.
- Is she still alive? - Don't know.
Do you? I looked for her once.
No luck.
Probably dead.
That isn't our driver, is it? - No, it's, uh, Leroy Fish.
- He's still alive? - Yeah.
- Oh, my God.
He used to give us hell when we were kids.
He's still trying.
Hey, Leroy.
What's with the fancy cars up the road? Don't know what you're talking about, man.
We know what you're up to.
And we are watching you.
Everything okay? You know, he shot your husband once.
It it BBs.
I I walked onto his property and pop-pop-pop.
- From that day on, it was war.
- Yes, it was.
We TP'd his house.
- We opened his livestock gates.
- You still mess with him? Last week, I subscribed him to ten fetish magazines.
Well, careful.
That might win him over.
Oh, look at this.
This is something, huh? All of us just sitting here together.
And I'm glad you're here.
It's been too long.
It's good to see you too.
What do you think of the wallpaper? My mom thought she was having a girl.
This is amazing.
This was the inspiration for the Hub cubes? I don't know, actually.
It's so weird being back home.
It's like I'm walking through a dream.
Better than a nightmare.
Night is still young.
Come on.
You wanna see my roof? Yeah.
Oh, my God.
It looks exactly the same.
I built this radio myself.
We didn't really have TVs growing up.
That explains a lot, actually.
- Just kidding.
- Mm-hmm.
That's nice.
Why'd you change your name? Change my name? Well, growing up, I always felt like I was born into the wrong family.
I always actually searched for clues that I was adopted or swapped at birth.
And I spent so many nights sitting on this roof just fantasizing that I could someday be a completely different person.
I get that, actually.
I really wanted a new life, too.
That's why I married you.
Why did you marry me, though? I think I wanted you to - Save me.
- From what? I married you because I thought there was a chance that you'd be able to help fix whatever is wrong with me.
Well, why have we never talked like this? Zelda? I hope it's okay I came here.
I had to see you.
Yeah, yeah, of course.
You all right? I can't stop thinking about you, Jasper.
I want you, and I know you want me too.
I do.
- I want you.
- I want to feel your touch.
Come swim with me.
You all right, honey? You were really thrashing around in your sleep.
Uh, yeah, I'm good.
Um just had a strange dream.
Would you like to talk about it? No.
I'm I'm good.
Uh, thank you.
Guess I'm just getting used to being here.
I get it.
Transitions are very hard.
Speaking of, can I help with that? No, thank you.
I'm just gonna try and get some sleep.
Well, if you change your mind, I'm here.
Sweet dreams, Jasper.
Good night.
I'll see you in the morning, okay? - Where are you sleeping? - Downstairs couch.
I mean, you can sleep in here with me, if you want.
Yeah is that okay? Mm-hmm.
- You have room? - Yeah.
Good night.
Does this bring back high school memories? Did you ever sneak any girls up here? No.
I didn't.
You're actually the first.
Well, did you ever fantasize about sneaking girls in here? Yeah.
Lie back.
What are you doing? What are you doing? Stop, stop, stop! Why don't do this, Herbert! I'm sorry.
I gotta do this for my daughter.
Herbert You don't have to do this.
It's temporary.
I think.
It's happening.
It's happening now.
I'll come back for you.
Hey, Dad.
You okay? Yeah.
I could use a beer.
I can't believe that it's you in there.
I know.
I'm sorry.
This is so fucked up I mean, do you think you're still gonna be able to, um - Get back into my own body? - Yeah.
I'm not worried about that.
Oh! Getting into this body was the hard part.
You did that for me.
Thanks, Dad.
Hey, uh, how do I know when Hazel's body's you again? Oh, good point.
- We need a code phrase.
- Yeah.
We could use something from your secret language, huh? "Smearzart rearzight?" - No, you're stupid.
- Okay, all right.
You come up with something then.
No, I'm saying the code should just be, "No, you're stupid.
" Oh.
Okay, yeah.
I can remember that.
"No, you're stupid.
" Stupid.
You're stupid.
Oh, hi.
Sorry, I didn't I didn't see you there.
Yeah, I just I wanted to check in on you you know, while, uh, Byron's not around.
I'm fine.
Thank you.
You know, you're really good with him.
You only tell him what he wants to hear.
What's that supposed to mean? Well, the other one never really figured that out.
What other one? Hazel, you are not the first one he brought to the Hub, okay? Things did not end well for her.
You need to get out.
What what happened to her? - Oh, my God.
Where is it? - Where's what? Um, nothing, nothing.
Oh, God, did he find it? - I think he found it! - You can trust me, okay? - I can help you.
- Plane's ready, Hazel.
You're leaving so soon? What the heck? You just got here.
Why don't you stay longer? Show Hazel more of Dutton.
She needs to go home to see her father.
Right? - I love that.
- Come on, Hazel.
- I'll take that.
- Thank you.
So did you get to know me better? I think I did, yeah.
You missing something? No.
All right, people! Let's find the Hub.
