Steven Universe (2013) s05e18 Episode Script

A Single Pale Rose

I watched the leader of the Crystal Gems, Rose Quartz, shatter Pink Diamond! So how did a Rose Quartz, with no business being anywhere near Pink Diamond, get so close in the first place? Aagh! I can't believe you've had your phone for a month and you haven't used it at all! That's not true! I use it to tell the time! Sigh.
Come here, P.
Ugh.
Let's change your wallpaper.
[Shutter clicks] Looks great! Okay, now texting is in the messages.
Just click on this green icon.
- Pearl, can I ask you someth - Hold on, Steve-o, I'm in the middle of a demonstration! Okay, anyway, and you can type, I mean, pretty much anything you want.
[Message chime] You really should have a case for this.
I do! Okay.
I have a bunch of actual phone cases in my room.
Hup! Don't throw that thing against a rock or anything until I'm back.
- Pearl - What is it, Steven? You remember how Mom shattered Pink Diamond? Well, I was just wondering - if maybe you shattered Pink Diamond? - I I-it's okay! You can tell me! [Grunting] Why can't you just talk to me about this?! I got the phone case.
Oh, yes! The phone case! Thank you, Amethyst! Ha ha whoops! So clumsy.
It's probably safer if I just keep it in here.
Wait, come on! Just put it in this, then put it in your head! What was that? [Sighs] [Waves crashing, gulls crying] [Message chime] "I want to tell you, but I can't"?! [Vacuum running] Pearl, I'm ready to talk! - Uh, what?! - I-I got your text.
"I want to tell you but I can't," with a monkey emoji? Steven, I didn't send that.
I haven't used my phone since I put it away this morning.
Maybe you butt dialed me with your gem? No, that's impossible.
Hang on, I'll pull it out, and we'll get to the bottom of this.
See, here.
See, I Maybe this? No.
Maybe this? No.
Maybe may-may this? - No.
- Pearl, are you okay? Ugh.
Where could I have put it? I know it's in there somewhere.
[Gasps] You just sent another one! ## Steven I need you to go inside my gem and find my phone.
What? I-is it stuck in there or something!? There are certain things I can't tell you, but I can tell you that I need my phone.
Please! I can bring you back out once you find what you're looking for.
- Your phone - Exactly! I'll keep your phone, text me with mine when you find it.
Huh! [Humming] There's a Pearl inside Pearl's pearl? Oh, Steven! Where should I put you? Certainly not with the spears.
Human paraphernalia? Personal items? Let's just go alphabetical.
S S-T Wait, no! Don't file me! You sent me in here for your cell phone! My phone? Well, all right, let's see.
P-H-O- Ah, hmm.
Nothing Oh, it's a cellular phone! I must have put it under "C"! It should be right here.
It should be right here! Unless some other me took it.
There's more of you in here? Oh, no, not here.
I made sure of that.
I'm very good at compartmentalizing everything.
That's why I get to be surface, and they have to be put away.
Well, if one of those Pearls has the phone, can you tell me where to find her? Oh, you don't want to go where they are.
It's a mess.
Let's just stay here, where everything is alphabetized! Come on, I can handle it! All right.
Don't say I didn't warn you.
[Waves lapping shore] This doesn't look like a mess.
It looks like the past.
[Sobbing] Oh, that kind of mess.
[Sobbing] Hey, Pearl inside Pearl inside Pearl's pearl.
You upset about the whole missing phone situation, too? No, it's Rose! What was she thinking?! She can't have a baby! Well, this is awkward.
What am I going to do when she disappears? I'm going to lose her, just like I lost my what was it you said? Your cell phone? [Wailing] My cell phone! Look, it's going to be okay! That's why you sent me in here, I'm going to help you find it.
I think I know where it is.
It's probably where I lost everything else.
## Huh? It better not turn out that her phone was in her pocket or she left it on the dresser or dropped it in the toilet.
Seems about as likely as putting it away in your repressed war memories.
Pearl? I mean, Pearl inside Pearl inside Pearl inside Pearl's pearl! Is this really about your phone or what! We're the only ones left.
Homeworld they were all leaving.
We thought we'd won.
There was a bright light and everyone was - Why did I do it? - What do you mean? Just tell me! ## [Grunting] Mom? I thought this was Pearl's What are you doing here? ## W-what?! [Shouting] I I knew it! It was you who shattered her.
Pink Diamond? But I don't understand.
## The palanquin? [Indistinct whispering] And then you'll be done! It's going to be easy! There's got to be another way! I mean, maybe Blue and yellow don't care! They never have! This is "Pink Diamond's" colony.
We can end it all right here, right now.
You know this is crazy, right? Your status, my purpose none of it will matter anymore.
This will change everything.
I know.
Isn't it exciting? [Sighs] It is! We can leave our old lives behind.
If this is really my world, I want to give it to the Crystal Gems.
I want to live here with human beings.
I want to live here with you! We'll both finally be free! - Okay, I'm ready! - Pearl! I can't believe I'm going to do this.
I can't exactly shatter myself.
## ## ## ## [Blows, grunts] [Gasps] - Convincing? - Very much so, my diamond.
Soon it will be just "Rose.
" Wait.
There's one last thing I need to do.
- Yes? - No one can ever find out we did this.
I never want to look back.
So, for my last order to you as a diamond, please, let's never speak of this again.
No one can know.
## [Gasps] Sorry to make you come all this way.
## ## ## - I know.
- I wanted to tell you for so long.
- Mom was Pink Diamond.
- Whaaaaat?!
