Monsterland (2020) s01e05 Episode Script

Eugene, Oregon

‐ Look, my client has
a reasonable expectation of privacy
everywhere on his property,
including the backyard‐‐
‐ Ten acres of pristine natural forest.
Just to be clear.
‐ For which he paid handsomely
and can therefore expect to control.
They're his domain.
‐ We're not talking about his "domain,"
we're talking about the airspace above it.
My client has the right
to fly her plane over his yard.
‐ And take high‐res photos
of the private property?
I don't think so‐‐
‐ Of trees! For a nature magazine!
And they are visible from public space.
There's no right to privacy in the air.
California v. Ciraolo:
aerial observation of a person's backyard
is not a violation
of the Fourth Amendment.
SHAWN: Kyllo v. United States:
surveillance of private property
from a public vantage point
constitutes a search
and requires a warrant.
‐ Okay, that was thermal imaging
technology deployed by cops,
not photos taken by a wilderness blogger.
‐ And who's to say
the cops won't come next, huh?
Do you really want
to set that precedent, counselor?
That we can spy on private citizens
as long as we do it from above?
‐ No, counselor.
I want to set the precedent
that the sky is not for sale.
[buzzer sounds]
PROFESSOR: Okay! Time's up.
Thank you, ladies. That was zealous.
And a stalemate, if I ever saw one.
Who wants to follow them, hm?
BOY: Not me.
don't be shy. Mr. Clifford?
Miss Andrews? Come on,
you're up, let's go.

SHAWN: All right, give me your napkin.
‐ Uh‐‐
Oh, excuse me?
Hey. Hi, I'm Kate.
‐ Gus.
KATE: Gus. Hi.
Can I borrow your pen?
I promise I won't steal it.
‐ All right.
‐ Thank you.
GUS: All right.
‐ Shameless.
‐ Whatever. Okay.
Blue‐sky brainstorm: Year 16,
what are we gonna do?
‐ Renovate the basement.
‐ Oh, wow. Fun.
Happy anniversary.
‐ What? Have you been down there recently?
We got mold, we got bugs‐‐
‐ Exactly, it's a murderscape. Lost cause.
Now, I am going to get
a white dove orchid.
‐ Hmm.
‐ And I'm going to keep that bitch alive,
so help me god.
‐ Okay, gauntlet thrown.
‐ And I'm gonna finish the scrapbook
in time for Heather's bat mitzvah.
What else?
‐ Yes, ma'am.
‐ What else? Oh! I was thinking
maybe I could kill Barb.
‐ Barb Bressler?
‐ No, Streisand.
Yes, Barb Bressler!
Wicked witch of the cul‐de‐sac.
‐ "Murder Barb."
‐ Or maybe just her dog.
You know, I'd settle
for her little dog. "Susan."
‐ "Susan."
‐ Do you know that thing has
ten thousand followers on Instagram?
[cell phone buzzing]
SHAWN: Uhh‐‐
KATE: Mm‐mm.
‐ All right, all right, all right.
All right.
Copy that. No work.
KATE: Thank you.
‐ No work.
‐ Okay. So we have four goals so far,
two are chores, one is a felony.
‐ It's a public service, really.
‐ Correct. Still‐‐
What are we gonna do for us?
I mean, considering we survived
the shitstorm that was Year 15,
I think it's kinda like,
go big or go home, right?
‐ So we go big, then.
What d'you have in mind?
‐ Italy.
Six weeks. Rome, Venice, Tuscany. Gelato.
Museums. Wine tours.
You and me.
What do you think?
‐ Well, I mean, you had me at gelato, so‐‐
‐ Good. 'Cause, um,
we leave in a month.
‐ Wait, you‐‐
you booked it already?
‐ Mm‐hmm.
I went big.
‐ Yeah, you did!
‐ Mm‐hmm?
‐ Wow, this is‐‐
‐ Yeah.
‐ Oh, thank you. Thank you, baby.
I‐‐ I love you.
‐ All right, all right, break it up.
Tequila shots,
courtesy of jealous bartenders everywhere.
KATE: Aww!
‐ Thank you, Gus.
SHAWN: Oh no.
GUS: Yes. Come on, down the hatch.
‐ Fifteen years today, I hear that right?
‐ Mm.
KATE: Ohh. Holy shit.
‐ Fifteen years down.
KATE: Uh‐huh.
‐ What's the secret,
you don't mind me asking?
‐ Marry her.

KATE: Good thinkin', boss.
[cell phone buzzing]
‐ Oh‐‐ Hello!
Yeah. No, it's the homeowners. We‐‐
No, we had too much to drink.
What are you doing?
‐ I need a corkscrew.
‐ Uh, authorization, um‐‐
Uh, should be our kid's birth date. 9407?
[alarm shuts off]
Oh, thank God.
Oh‐‐ Oh, yeah.
We will. Okay.
‐ Least we know they can protect us
from us, right?
‐ Uh‐huh. Yeah.
Hey, um, I‐‐
I'm I'm good for tonight.
‐ Come on!
It's a special occasion.
Shiraz, from the partners.
‐ No, I know, but those shots did me in.
And, well, I‐‐
And with your medication,
we should, you know, quit
while we're ahead, yeah?
‐ Or you could not be such a buzzkill
and we could toast
to staying fun in Year 16.
‐ Fine. One glass.
‐ Yay!
‐ And water!
‐ Mmm.
‐ Thank you.
‐ Yeah.

[knocking on door]
‐ Wow. Dinner's at 7:00.
You're not even dressed.
‐ What are you doing here?
‐ Come on. Costume change.
‐ Did you not get my message?
‐ Which?
You mean your 28 second breakup voicemail?
"Hi, it's me,
"I think you're the love of my life,
but also we're over."
‐ Okay. I guess you got it.
‐ Sure did.
[can pops]
But then I realized
that if you can unilaterally decide
we're breaking up,
after six objectively perfect months,
then I can unilaterally decide
that we're not!
And since we're not,
I don't wanna lose the table.
So, put on some real pants.
‐ Wait, no, I was serious.
I have reasons.
‐ Okay.
Let's hear 'em, then.
Make your case, counselor,
and I'll make mine.
Due process.

‐ So, last weekend,
you asked me to go hiking
and I said I couldn't
because I had to go
to my cousin Eli's wedding in Springfield.
I wasn't at his wedding.
I was running around my building, naked.
Kind of half‐screaming, half‐singing,
until my neighbor called the cops.
I had a, um,
manic episode.
I have bipolar, type 1. Type "fun."
Except, you know. Not.
This is some of the stuff
I, um, take for it.
They all, like, kinda work
when they feel like it.
And therapy helps, obviously.
And routine, exercise, sleep.
All of these plants, I had
a social worker once
who told me
to "surround myself with life."
So I bought a fern.
And it helped a little.
I know myself, okay.
And I am more in it
with you every second.
So I have to walk away now.
[pills rattling]
Your turn.
‐ I love you.
‐ No, Shawn, no, that's not an argument‐‐
‐ Yes, it is.
‐ No.
‐ It's the only argument, Kate.
‐ I know you say that right now,
but this thing that's inside of me,
it's mean.
And sooner or later,
it will wear you down, Shawn.
And one day, you'll think, "You know what?
This is too much."
And you'll be right. So‐‐
WOMAN: [on phone] Shawn?
SHAWN: Yeah. Uh, just
pull the merger agreement for me,
have it on my desk when I come in.
WOMAN: Do you want digital or hard copy?
‐ Hard copy, yeah.
WOMAN: Okay, so I'll‐‐
KATE: [whispering] Get off the phone.
[woman continues, indiscernible]
‐ Yeah, talk to you in the morning.
Okay, okay.
[Kate shushing]
Didn't we do this part already?
‐ We couldn't be loud at the bar.
[both laughing]
‐ Okay.
[cell phone buzzing]
‐ Shawn! It's two a. m.
‐ It's not work.
‐ I asked you to set some boundaries.
‐ It's Heather.
‐ Oh.
‐ "Up late studying.
"Just remembered: happy anniversary!
Don't party too hard."
‐ Aww!
‐ "Studying."
Yeah, right.
"Thanks, hon. We love you."
‐ "Yeah. Go to bed."
‐ "Go to bed."
‐ Mm‐hmm. Bed.
‐ Man,
I hope she's all right.
‐ What's that supposed to mean?
‐ I don't know.
She's so little, you know.
At boarding school.
I hope it's fun.
More Harry Potter,
less Dead Poets Society.
What? What did I say?
‐ Why is she there, Shawn?
Whose fault is it Shawn?
Why don't you remind us,
‐ Okay, no.
‐ one more time?
‐ That's not what I meant.
‐ I'm not a fucking newborn.
You can't gaslight me.
‐ "Gaslight" you?
[Shawn stammers]
I swear to god, that's not what I‐‐

Say it.
‐ I swear, that's not what I was trying‐‐
‐ So say it. Say it, then.
Why is Heather at boarding school?
‐ Jesus, Kate, can we just take a breath?
‐ No, no, no, no, no. You don't get
to just, like, allude to shit
and then tap‐dance away from it‐‐
‐ Tap dance!
Christ, I wasn't alluding to anything.
‐ Cut the shit, Shawn!
Why is our kid gone?
Just fucking say it!
Just fucking say it!
‐ All right!
‐ She's there because you tried
to kill yourself
three times this year alone.
And the third time,
our 12‐year‐old found you
passed out in your own vomit.
So yeah, I thought she could use
a change of scenery.
[Kate chuckles]
[bottle clangs]
‐ Does that feel better?
‐ No.
‐ Because the thing I don't get
is how I'm ever supposed to heal
with you thinking that shit
all the time.
I can't even have a fucking drink
without you breathing down‐‐
‐ You're on Effexor,
you could have a seizure.
‐ I can't even go to fuckin' work!
‐ We agreed that you should take
some time off!
‐ Why can't you just admit
it doesn't matter what I do?
It's all you see!
If I'm pissed off? Pfft!
"She's crazy."
If I want sex? "Oh, she's crazy."
If I book Italy tickets‐‐
‐ Okay, that was a big purchase.
Amazing, but
And I‐‐ I ca‐‐ I can't just take
six weeks off of work, Kate,
we need to talk about it!
Baby. Hey.

Just talk about this.

[clears throat]
School uniforms are fundamentally good
for students and school communities.
They eliminate distractions,
reduce the perception of inequality,
and even help students get more sleep,
since we don't have to wake up
early in the morning
