Mr Robot (2015) s01e09 Episode Script


Exciting time in the world right now.
Exciting time.
If you agree to testify, I will testify that I broke chain of custody with the .
DAT file.
We've implemented a honeypot, CS30.
I'd like to look over your findings, especially this server.
Detectives came by.
They wanna speak with you.
They found a body on the roof.
And you both did know the deceased, Sharon Knowles? Sharon Knowles? I think the baby's coming.
We got to get her to the hospital.
Tell me about your father.
I remember I tried to hug him, tell him I'm sorry, and he shoved me so hard, I fell backwards out the window.
On, my God, Elliot! Did you forget again? Did you forget who I am? I'm your - Sister.
I think we should talk.
It hasn't happened since 1904, the year John McGraw decided to take his bat and ball and go home.
Here we are 90 years later and I wanna get your thoughts on what it was like to be without the 1994 World Series.
That's right.
The 1994 World Series is canceled.
Um, well, I'd recommend the Pentium 90.
They're lightning fast, and we've got some in stock now.
With an 800 megabyte hard drive, you'll be all set.
Or we could you save you a few bucks and upgrade what you have.
Once we swap out that motherboard and hard drive, um, you'll be better than new.
Why don't you, uh, bring it on by and we'll, we'll take a look.
Thank you.
What happened? That new mouse not work out for you? Your son.
He stole money from me.
Uh, excuse me? Your son stole money from me! I pulled out my wallet, I specifically remembered I had three 20s.
And now I only have one.
I used one to pay for the mouse, and then I had two left.
Your son was standing right behind me when I had my money out on the counter.
I Just calm down.
I'm sure there's an explanation for this.
I don't want an explanation! The only thing I want from you is my money and a fucking apology! There's no need for that.
I'm just trying to figure it out.
Can you tell how much of a shit I give about that? Ugh I don't have time for this.
Are you giving me my money or not? Look, do the right thing here, guy.
Then, no.
Excuse me? The answer is no.
Are you You being serious right now? I can't help you.
You're really just gonna sit there and lie? I should call the cops! What What an example you're setting.
I, learned my money, and you're just teaching him how to steal.
You're a terrible father.
I'm gonna have to ask you to leave.
You're a nobody.
You're a middle-aged man doing what my retarded nephew could do.
That's your life.
You know what? Keep your 20.
I'll just go to Best Buy from now on.
Come on out.
Dad, I didn't do it.
Let me see it.
Timecop or Stargate? What? 20 bucks ought to cover the both of us.
Pulp Fiction? Never heard of it.
You sure I can take you to that? All right, get your jacket.
What? How come I'm not in trouble? Even though what you did was wrong, you're still a good kid.
And that guy was a prick.
Sometimes that matters more.
Come on.
Let's go.
It starts in 15 minutes, and I wanna get some popcorn.
Come on.
Happy New Year 2016 - New Year, New Color ;-) It's really him.
It's really you.
I haven't been to your apartment before.
It's nice.
A little messy but that's not earth-shattering news.
You never really did like cleaning your room.
Jesus fucking Christ.
I can't believe it's really you.
I was beginning to wonder how long it was gonna take before you recognized me.
Now, the fact that you've stopped recognizing Darlene, too, well I gotta be honest, that's a little disconcerting.
- Argh! - Why didn't you say anything? Why didn't you tell me? Okay, Elliot.
- This whole time! Elliot.
You are not well.
I was trying to handle it gently.
Gently? Gently? Gently? Is that what the last three months have been? No.
It's been about us doing something important.
And that's what it still needs to be about.
You died.
You died.
You were dead! I suggest you lower your voice.
Lower my voice? You want me to lower my voice after appearing at my door 20 years after your supposed death.
I think this is a perfect fucking volume! Elliot, you don't want them to hear us.
Especially after my impromptu visit from Tyrell Wellick last night.
Elliot, there are people out there who do not want us to work together.
Is that why they've been following me? Is that why? Because of you? Think about it.
You don't remember me, you don't remember your own goddamn sister.
You see that shrink, pop their pills.
They intentionally put you in this haze, fog up whatever brain matter you have left in there so you forget what they want you to forget.
They're trying to control you, Elliot.
They've been trying to control you all along.
This is crazy.
I'm crazy.
I'm crazy.
You're crazy.
This is crazy.
What are you talking about? Who's trying to control me? The people out there who don't want me alive.
The people who are afraid of us.
We have to be more careful now, more than ever.
And Darlene? She knew about this? Elliot, I will explain everything, but right now, tonight, we have to stick to the plan.
Are you kidding me? You want me to put this on hold? Are you out of your goddamn mind? It's not safe to discuss this here.
I don't give a shit! Tell me what the fuck is going on.
All right.
Come on, let's go.
Where? You want answers? Stop asking questions and follow me.
Oh, that's sweet, I I can't.
You're going too fast.
Trust me, I don't think that's the problem.
Hey, I know you didn't want to talk last night.
No, Harry, I I can't right now, I have to Breathe and have some breakfast in bed with me.
How are you enjoying anything like that? Hmm.
Honey, I appreciate it, I God, if you only knew.
Tell me.
I would love to know.
They hacked us.
You know that, it's all over the news.
Now, normally, a company can get through this, but we're a cyber security company.
Can you appreciate how bad that is? We're hanging on by our fingernails.
Uh, who knows? Maybe we've already fallen off a cliff and I'm still trying to grasp onto something.
I'm a failure.
Look at me.
Look at this person who loves you so much he would die a happy man right now just 'cause he had this.
Us, sitting down, having breakfast.
I don't think failing looks like this.
Hmm? Make sure you go through all those emails again.
Everything from '91 to '95.
And let's start building a table that cross-references our calendar.
Hey! Good to see you.
Uh, you should be proud.
News of Colby's confession is breaking today.
So far, we are firing on all cylinders.
So, what's up? I came to help out.
Can we scan these and, uh, email the PDFs to me.
And copy Roy on them.
Shouldn't you be at work? I quit.
You can't work here.
Why not? I gave up everything for this case.
I don't want you to.
I am not here to help you find purpose in your life.
If you need something to do, take a jewelry class.
But you can't work here.
After what I did, I won't be able to find another job in tech.
I'm broke.
The lawsuit money won't come in for years.
Which is why you need to find something you can get.
But this is not it.
Not at this level, for what we're trying to do.
Hello? John.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
No, tell me.
Um, four? No, no, no, no.
We're not We're not going down that road.
Absolutely not.
It's not happening.
No, it's gonna be six or nothing.
Who is this? It's me.
I'm looking for Elliot.
He's not at work.
I think he's flipping out again.
What do you mean? He tried to kiss me last night.
You're the one that found him last time he was like this.
I really need your help.
Where are you? He's not here.
Let's keep thinking, then.
I have been.
This was our runaway hideout.
He always came here.
Let's spitball together.
I can't help you.
What does that mean? It means I don't really know Elliot anymore.
He has gone psycho legit this time, Angela.
We are in a state of 911.
We just need to talk to him.
Yeah, well, he doesn't wanna talk back.
And if he does, it's usually with a bunch of lies.
We can't keep protecting him from himself, Darlene.
He has saved our asses multiple times, and you're just gonna do him like this? Why do you even care? What is that supposed to mean? It means you guys were never that close.
In fact He's been doing just fine until you moved back to the city.
Why are you even here? Why have you and Elliot been spending so much time together? Okay.
You need to back off, babe.
He is my brother and I'm just trying to help.
That requires no explanation.
You don't wanna tell me what's really going on here, that's fine.
But then stop asking me for my help.
I think we're good.
You remember this? Of course I do.
I think it's reasonable for me to confirm given your I even remember my game.
I'd calculate the statistical probability of safety for each car on the train based on how often they would derail.
On the way there, I'd always pick the safest car 'cause I looked forward to our trips to the city so much.
Then, on the way back, I'd pick the most dangerous ones because I hated going home.
She's not there anymore, Elliot.
Look, I don't know where we're going, but we need to find Darlene.
They may be after her.
- Shh, Shh, Shh.
I thought that was you.
Oh my God, I haven't seen you in forever.
We can't see Darlene right now.
It's too risky.
I know you're confused, Elliot.
But I'm gonna show you.
I'm gonna show you exactly where I've been this whole time.
Look, calm down, I'll figure this out.
I know you don't trust me, I wouldn't either, but I'm telling you, I'm remembering more and more now as time goes on.
That's a plus.
It's all starting to come back.
And once we get all the answers, I'll be back to normal.
Except for the fact that my dead father isn't really dead and is sitting across from me.
I'm gonna step outside and give you guys a moment to yourselves.
We'll try feeding him again later, okay? Okay.
We're not letting anybody through.
I I know the owner.
Freddie, are you okay? ls everyone okay? What the hell happened? I'm still trying to figure that one out myself.
I was gone one day upstate.
They're saying it was electrical, but, who knows? On hold with the insurance.
Cocksuckers are doing their typical dance.
Yeah, I was on hold.
No, wait.
Not again.
I just came by to pick up some drives one of my employees dropped off yesterday.
I'm sorry you wasted the trip.
Everything's gone.
What was it? Boy? Yeah.
Thank you for the flowers, sir.
If I'm being honest, uh, it was Anwar who sent the flowers.
He has a way with them.
Tyrell, you don't know me to beat around the bush, so I'll, I'll get right to it.
Uh, have a seat.
You understand the, uh, delicate state we're in these days.
I'm sure you're aware, this This situation with Sharon Knowles is It's horrific.
Scott is understandably devastated by it.
My heart goes out to him.
But I don't know what I'd do if Yeah.
I know.
I know.
But the thing is, the The police have indicated to Scott and to me that you are a person of interest.
Yeah, their suspicions are Are based on information Scott gave them about advances you made on Sharon.
Look, Tyrell, it was not lost on me that you and Scott had your own competitive frictions.
Hell, the man nabbed CTO right out from under you.
I'm sure his distress is just causing him to lash out and you're an easy target for him.
And, of, of course I doubt your involvement in this This mishap, but, but, but The problem remains.
Scott will continue here, but you, I'm afraid, cannot.
I'm not sure what you're saying, Phillip.
You know exactly what I'm saying.
Phillip, you can't do this.
You can't do this.
You can't! I've killed myself for this company! I've been promoted faster than anyone else! You know, I can't deny I tried picturing your reaction.
I seldom have time for such imaginings.
But, for you, I was curious, and it It could have gone any number of ways.
And I found all the different versions quite interesting, I admit.
But, now, confronted with the reality, I have to say, I'm disappointed.
Phillip, please don't do this.
I was on a track.
There was a moment, Tyrell.
A point in your recent past, a A mistake, a compulsion, a decision, something that led you to this point right now.
My only advice to you is find that moment Understand it.
It's the only way to reconcile this, this failure with yourself.
Please, sir.
Don't do this.
I'm begging you.
I I love this company.
Wellick, you can't keep ignoring us.
If you have any questions, contact my lawyer.
If you have evidence against me, charge me.
I know I brought you back to township, but stopping by our old house is not part of the plan.
Come on, these people are gonna be home soon.
Not the best time for a B and E.
This is where it happened, isn't it? What? Where what happened? You remember anything about that window? Come on, Elliot.
Like I said, we should go.
Elliot, what are you doing? Calm down You pushed me out this window.
- Elliot.
You pushed me off the boardwalk.
Elliot, come on.
- No.
Maybe you're the one who needs some pushing now.
Calm down.
It was an accident.
Bullshit! I was eight years old! - No.
And you thought I deserved it! That's what you said, isn't it? - No.
No! No.
Right before you pushed me again! No, Elliot.
You thought you deserved it.
You've felt guilty about this your whole life.
About telling people my secret.
This anger was never at me.
It was at you! Please, Elliot.
You don't have to be angry at yourself anymore.
Just let it go.
Let it go.
You're right.
I was angry.
I was angry at myself.
I hated myself for doing what I did to you.
I'm ready to let go.
What? Gonna work in the garden a little.
It'd be nice if you wanted to help.
Oh, by the way, you didn't tell me Darlene was back in town.
I haven't seen her back here in a while.
What did you say? Darlene.
At least I think it was her.
You saw her? Where? I'm telling you I did not get notification of the request.
That server needs to remain a honeypot off the network.
Sir, I have the request right here from yesterday.
I'm trying to tell you, Jim, our network was compromised yesterday.
I did not make the request, someone else obviously did.
So you need to take the server off the network or something's gonna happen.
I just can't do that, sir.
We have specific orders from Tyrell Wellick to keep the request as is.
That doesn't make any sense.
Look, I need to speak to your supervisor.
Hello? Is anyone here? Hello? Jesus.
I ran out of places to look, so I figured I'd try the last place he'd ever be.
But struck out again.
God I haven't been here in years.
The new family that just moved in is so weird.
Especially the dad.
They didn't really change much.
You okay? Yeah.
Shit! Weird, new dad's back.
I'm sorry, by the way.
For what? I should be more open with you.
You're family.
Okay, okay, don't get all mushy on me now.
Do you see that? Wasn't that Elliot's room? We're almost there Almost there.
Why Why are we here? I thought you said we were going somewhere safe.
Elliot! Elliot! Shit.
What the hell are they doing here? It won't be long now.
I tried to protect you, son, but they caught up to us.
Elliot! What are you talking about? That's Darlene and Angela.
Trust me, son, I wanted to tell you sooner.
Things got too accelerated at the end there.
You have to believe that.
No matter what anyone tries to do, I will never leave you.
I will always be right here.
Do you understand that? They are not gonna break us apart again.
What's going on? Tell me right now! Listen to me.
Listen to me, because we don't have much time.
They're gonna try and get rid of me again, and I need you to not let them.
Why would they get rid of you? Please, Elliot.
Listen to me.
I will never leave you.
I will never leave you alone again.
I love you, son.
What's he talking about? What's he talk What's he talking about? Hey, I wanna know.
I wanna know.
I wanna know! Elliot, who are you talking to? What do you mean? I'm talking to Stay back.
Stay back.
Elliot, you're bleeding.
Ah! Elliot, what are you doing here? You didn't see him? Who? - This can't be happening.
- No.
This can't be happening.
This can't be happening.
This is happening, isn't it? You knew all along, didn't you? Huh? Elliot, who do you think you've been talking to? You're gonna make me say it, aren't you? I'm Mr.
You're gonna be okay.
I think I'm pretty fucking far from okay.
Don't take this the wrong way, but I envy you.
I wish I could talk to my mom again.
Even if she isn't real.
Take care of yourself, okay? I know you don't feel like talking about it.
You're right, I don't.
Unfortunately, I need to know, Elliot.
Given what we've been doing I just need to know.
Do you remember any of it? Remember what? When we first started fsociety? Uh, is Mr.
Wellick in? Oh, hi, Mr.
No, he's gone.
He was, um He was let go today.
What? Uh, why? I don't know.
He wasn't always the easiest person to deal with.
I'm I'm sure.
Uh Do you think you can get me in to see, uh, Scott Knowles? It's urgent.
Oh, no.
Definitely not now.
You haven't heard? Dad, what's going on? I'll let you two talk.
I know, I know, but, hey, you popped in over at my home.
I figured I'd, uh, return the favor.
What do you want? To offer you something you may want.
Come on in.
If this is about the case Please.
I don't care about the case.
I don't even understand the case.
I have lawyers for that.
Then what? You boys can wait outside.
So, I gotta be honest, I was impressed by you.
Sure, your career's finished, but you played a great short game.
You took a big gamble and you got what you wanted.
It was just, you know, the wrong thing to want.
What do you care? You know, I looked into you over there at Allsafe.
I mean, lots of people would have settled into middle-management bliss after all the shit you've taken.
But you didn't.
You're relentless and smart.
And that combination is very valuable to a lot of important people.
People I know.
Where are you going with all of this? I think I can land you a pretty lucrative gig.
A gig? Where? Your favorite place, where else? You slummed it all the way down to Jersey in person to offer me a job at the company I'm currently suing? What's the real ask here? I think you'd make a great businesswoman.
I'm afraid it's nothing more than that.
Is this a joke? It's no joke.
My pals think you can bring a lot to the table.
You can't be offering me a job there.
You're testifying against them.
So? You'll find this out fairly soon, but, in business, grudges aren't really a thing.
It's too emotional.
It's because you pulled off, what you pulled off, that they called me.
This is a huge class-action lawsuit.
They're going to pay millions.
Roughly 75 to 100 million.
And that's what their lawyers will settle for.
After they exhaust most of your legal team's funds for the next seven years.
And, sure, that is That's a lot of money, but not to them, not really.
We started a rainy-day fund when the leak happened just for this occasion.
The fund itself has already made five times that amount.
I'd like to ask you to leave.
Shall I pass your name along to them? I'm not working there.
They killed my mother.
And every fast food joint around the corner delivers diabetes to millions of people.
Phillip Morris hands out lung cancer on the hour, every hour.
I mean, hell, everyone's destroying the planet beyond the point of no return.
Are you really gonna start taking all of these things so personally? Maybe I will.
Maybe someone has to.
A suggestion.
If you want to change things, perhaps you should try from Within.
Because this is what happens from the outside.
These guys don't wait on anyone.
So you'll have to let 'em know by tomorrow.
I'll show myself out.
These are all empty.
Are you just filling them and dumping them? Where are your new 'scrips? What does it matter? I don't even know what's real anymore.
Look I know you feel shitty right now.
But once you take your meds Maybe we should stop it, Darlene.
Stop what? The plan.
The hack.
Maybe we shouldn't execute it.
What? Why? The minute our infected server gets back on the main network, we're set.
It wasn't me.
The whole time.
Wasn't really me doing all of that.
The reasons we wanted to do this, the reasons why we all wanted to do this, are real.
Maybe you don't realize this, but this was your idea.
You came up with this.
There is a part of you, somewhere deep down inside, that knows this is the right thing to do.
I'm gonna get your meds.
We'll talk more when I get back, okay? Come on.
What would you do if you were in my shoes? I know, I know, I'm officially crazy but the plan isn't.
Is it? What the hell are you Shh! Shh.
I've been waiting outside your apartment until she left.
I didn't want anyone to know I'm here.
I know you're behind it.
All of it.
The server.
You're the one constant in a sea of variables.
Elliot? Now, I don't know what you're grand plan is, but I need to, and you're going to tell me.
Two days ago, I strangled a woman to death.
Just with my hands.
It's a strange sensation.
Something so tremendous done by something so simple.
The first 10 seconds were Uncomfortable.
A feeling of limbo.
But then your muscles tense.
And she struggles and fights, but it almost disappears in the background along with everything else in the world.
In that moment, it's just you and absolute power.
Nothing else.
That moment stayed with me.
I thought I'd feel guilty for being a murderer.
But I don't.
I feel wonder.
How long has this been going on? I don't know.
And what is it that you're doing, exactly? Encrypting all the files.
All of Evil Corp's financial records will be impossible to access.
The encryption key will self-delete after the process completes.
- What about the backups? - I took care of that, too.
China and Steel Mountain.
Of course, even when we went redundant I hacked the AirDream network.
I was in all of them.
You really thought of everything.
Who else was involved? Just me.
Well, now it's you and me.
I've always told you we'd end up working together, Elliot.
But Still, I have to know.
Why did you do it? What did you hope to accomplish by doing all of this? I don't know.
I wanted to save the world.
Happy New Year 2016 - New Year, New Color ;-)
