Right Back Where We Started

[DRAMATIC INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC PLAYS.]

[POGO.]
On April the 1st, 2019,
the Earth was destroyed
in a cataclysmic event.

Billions of people were wiped
out in a matter of minutes.

Ironically, the six survivors
of the apocalypse
were the very siblings
who brought it on.

Hold on!
This could get messy!

but I don't recall there
being a nuclear holocaust.

- No shit.

- What about my family?
Dead, like everyone else.

- And where am I now?
- [HAZEL.]
Dallas.
Same street.

Ten days earlier.

Plenty of time to restore the timeline
- and save them.

- [FIVE WHISPERS.]
Okay.

- So where do we start?
- "We"? You're on your own, pal.

I'm just here to keep
a promise to Agnes.

Is she ?
- Dead?
- Yeah.

Cancer.

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY.]

Took her quick.

But we had 20 good years together.

I guess forever just
wasn't in the cards.

[FIVE.]
I'm sorry, Hazel.

What about the Commission?
I quit those assholes, remember?
I don't owe 'em the fuzz off my peaches.

Well then, who the hell are those guys?

Whoo! See, I always knew
we weren't the only ones.

See, Eleanor thought my head
wasn't screwed on tight,
but but it's all true, yeah?
UFOs, crop circles
Well, the truth is out there.

No, no, no, no, no.

The The truth, it's
right here in front of us.

Tell me, wh
why is it always an anal probe?
Any closer, and I'll melt your brain.

He needs a little space.

Yes.
I'll be over here.

All those contraptions on the
roof, you built those, right?
Oh, yeah, yeah, sure did.

Yeah, I've been tracking anomalies
in in the atmosphere.

- Just waiting.

- Waiting for what?
For you.

For all of you.

[MAN.]
It all started in 1960,
the year the Silvertone
Omega was released.

I was in the middle of a sale
when something very strange happened.

This here, the Silvertone Omega,
is one of our top sellers,
in true ColorVision.

Ha! Who knew that Lucy's hair was red?
[CHUCKLES.]

[ENERGY CRACKLING OUTSIDE.]

Um, could you just a moment?
- [KLAUS.]
Diego! Allison!
- [MAN.]
So, for the past three years,
I've witnessed five energy surges
in that alleyway out back.

Same thing every time.

A bright blue light,
then something appears.

Did you get a good look at any of them?
Yeah, the first one.

And then the big, sensitive one.

- "Sensitive"?
- Yeah, cried a lot,
kept coming back to the alley,
sat around for hours calling
a woman's name.
Uh
[SNAPS FINGERS.]
Allison.

- Luther.

- [MAN.]
Yeah, he
he wasn't the only one.

Uh, the others came too,
off and on over the years,
looking for each other.

Eventually, they they stopped.

[FIVE, SOFTLY.]
So, my family is alive.

Shit.

I think I stranded them here.

Now listen to me
[SPLUTTERS.]
Elliott.
Elliott.

My name My name's Elliott.

Whatever, all right?
I got ten days to find
them and save the world.

Now, I need your help to do that.

You need my
You know what? I, uh
I always thought that this, uh, mugshot
looked like arrival number four.

Diego.

- [READING SOFTLY.]

- [ELLIOTT.]
So then,
- that's helpful?
- You have no idea.

- [INHALING SHARPLY.]

- [ENERGY WHOOSHES.]

[EXHALES HEAVILY.]

[WOMAN OVER PA.]
Arts and crafts
hours are 1:00 to 3:00 p.
m.

in the common area.

Pills will be distributed
prior to the start.

[MAN.]
Thank you, Alan, for
bringing that to the group.

I think fear is something
we can all relate to.

Okay, who else would like to share?
Anyone?
Come on, who's next?
Diego, you've been awfully
quiet this morning.

Just taking it all in, Doc.

Letting all the healing
shit wash over me.

Last week you mentioned your father,
how your whole childhood felt
like some kind of experiment.

- It was an experiment.

- [DOCTOR.]
Hmm.

Or did it just feel like an experiment?
No, it was literally an experiment.

[DOCTOR.]
Let's dig deeper.

You say your father is a villain.

- Hell, yeah.

- [DOCTOR.]
So you had to play hero
to make Daddy mad.

[LAUGHING.]

I'm a grown-ass man, Dr.
Moncton
[MONCTON.]
Who still defines himself
in opposition to his father.

His dead father.

That isn't really defining
yourself, is it, Diego?
Yeah, why don't you tell
that to Luke Skywalker?
I know you don't get it, but
that is an excellent reference.

Humor is good,
truth is better.

Who is the real Diego?
I don't know.

I guess I've never known.

But I'm ready.

I'm ready to find out.

Thank you, Diego.

Okay, quiet time until lunch.

Let me see that.

You're so full of shit.

- Tears too much?
- He saw right through it.

No, he totally ate that shit up.

Bet you three lunch
Jell-Os you're wrong.

- You're on.

- All right.

[DIEGO.]
Dr.
Moncton.

- Hey, you got a sec?
- Sure, Diego.
What is it?
I've been, uh, doing a lot
better lately, haven't I?
True.
You're calmer now, less combative.

It's nice to see you
opening up in group.

So, uh, when do you think I
might be getting out of here?
Well, your review board will
reassess your case in 90 days.

Ninety days? No, I can't
I can't wait that long.

Just take it one day at a time.
Okay?
No, you don't you don't understand.

They're going to kill the
president a week from today.

[SIGHS.]
Diego, I thought
we moved past this.

- You know what a hero complex is?
- Yeah.
It's for assholes
- who think they're heroes
- This paranoid fantasy
about President Kennedy
is what got you committed
- in the first place.

- They are going to kill him.

They're gonna shoot him in
the head right here in Dallas.

- All right? Understand?
- [MONCTON.]
Let go!
- All right! I'm okay.

- Let go!
I'm sorry.
Look, I'm okay.

I'm okay.
I'm okay.

[RICHARD MYHILL'S "YOU MUS
BE AN ANGEL" PLAYS ON RADIO.]

God, this is stupid.

- I can't.

- For you, maybe.

[GASPS.]
This'll cheer you up.

Bacon.

Smuggled it out of the lunchroom.

Do you want some?
No.

[CRUNCHES, SIGHS.]

To be honest, I was saving
it for your great escape.

- What are you talking about?
- Just saying,
whatever it is you're planning,
I can be very resourceful.

Look, even if I was planning
something, and I am not,
you would be the last
person I would take.

It's because of the Jell-Os, right?
You can have them back.

No, it's not because of the Jell
I'm a lone wolf.

I don't run with a pack.

Perfect.

Because I'm somewhat
of a lone wolf myself.

[SNIFFS, GROANS.]

- [SNIFFS.]

- Hargreeves, you have a visitor.

- Who?
- I ain't your secretary.

Maybe Daddy finally came
to say, "I love you.
"
- Five.

- [FIVE.]
Hey, Diego.

- [CHAIR SCRAPES.]

- You look good in white.

About time you showed up.

How'd you know I'd be back?
Because that's the
kind of shit you pull.

Where are the others?
They're not with you?
We'll find them.
[MUTTERS SOFTLY.]

- How long have you been here?
- Seventy-five days.

- [FIVE GRUNTS SOFTLY.]

- Landed in the alley behind
- Commerce and Knox.

- Commerce and Knox.

- You?
- I got here this morning.

How'd you find me?
[GENTLE SCOFF.]

"Disturbed man with multiple knives
arrested outside 1026 N.
Beckley.
"
That's Lee Harvey Oswald's house.

Care to explain?
Let's just say
Dallas Law Enforcement has not
been supportive of my attempt
to stop the assassination of
[SOFTLY.]
John F.
Kennedy.

Because it hasn't happened yet.

[DIEGO.]
And it's not going to happen.

Not on my watch.

Look, I've been shaving
down the bars in my room.

Another day or two, and
I'll be out of this place,
then I'm gonna stop Oswald
and save the president.

You want in, say the word.

[SOFTLY.]
Listen to me very
closely, you gibbering moron.

You are not going to do a goddamn thing.

Why not?
Because we have to stop the apocalypse.

[DIEGO.]
No shit.

But that doesn't happen
for another 60 years.

Not that apocalypse.

This is a new one.

It followed us.

I've seen it.

Nuclear war, Diego, in ten days.

[LAUGHS SOFTLY.]

- And I'm the one they locked up, huh?
- [SCOFFS.]

Fine, I'll play along.

What causes it?
I don't know.

Maybe some looney-tuned
asshole with a hero complex
tried to save the president
and screwed everything up.

- So you're saying it worked?
- [SCOFFS SOFTLY.]

I saved the president?
[GROWLS SOFTLY.]

I knew I could do it.

Okay, okay, I'll help you.

- Thank God.

- After I save Kennedy.

And then you swing us back a few decades
so I can slit Hitler's throat
off with a butter knife.

This is why you don't have any friends.

You know what? Guard.

[SIGHS.]
My brother is
plotting an escape.

The bars of his room
have been shaved down.

- Piece of shit!
- [GUARD.]
No! Here All right, asshole.

- Look, this is for your own good, Diego.

- No! Five!
- Listen, my brother is a very sick man.

- No, Five!
I only pray that he gets the
help he so desperately needs.

[DIEGO.]
No, please!
Not the needle! No! No! No!
[WHIMPERING.]

you later, okay? Just

Did you and Vanya have
fun today, Harlan?
[DOG BARKS OUTSIDE.]

We did.

We went down to visit the horses,
and we read James and the Giant Peach.

[ROOSTER CROWS OUTSIDE.]

Any episodes?
No, ma'am.

[SIGHS.]

How about you? How are you feeling?
Oh, my headaches are a lot better.

Still no memories.

Well then, we just need to get busy
making you some new ones, hmm?

Carl, watch your language around Harlan.

Are you kidding, honey?
If that boy says "son of a bitch,"
I will buy him a BB gun.

Hell, he says any damn thing,
everybody gets a Cadillac.
[CHUCKLES.]

See, the thing about sales
that people don't get
is the grit.

They think you just show up,
smile real wide, and boom, it's done.

Is that what people think, Carl?
Yes, it is.

But they don't get the art
and science of the thing.

It takes skills to get to that boom.

- Ah! Oh, it's the boom.
Mmm.

- Yeah! The boom!
In my eyes ♪
You get any calls yet?
I put another missing
persons ad in the paper.

Figure someone must be searching for ya.

And I love you more and more ♪
Maybe I'm just not the

I doubt that very much.

I'm sure we'd miss you already.

- [CARL.]

I said I almost got 'em.

- I don't got 'em just yet.

- What time will you be home?
[CARL.]
I don't know.

Depends how hard they make me work
to provide you with this wonderful life.

Fine.
Just be quiet

Think I'm just gonna keep

No.
We have to go back.

They were so clingy.

- Okay, fine!
- Felt like my skin was on fire.

I need us in San Francisco.

I have unfinished business.

Oh.
What're you gonna do?
Wear your little ghost power suit
and do some ghost phone calls
- and do some business? Aww!
- Forget it.
Forget it.

No, come back.

All my money's already in the pot.

Throw in that sissy-ass

That would be one hell of a belt buckle.

He's bluffing, by the way.

He's got nothing.

Okay, I'll put in the sissy necklace

And here's the best part.

You're gonna love this.

And you are the most beautiful

[ALLISON CHUCKLES.]

And the best part of my life.

What?
I just don't want you

Change is comin', baby.
I can feel it.

- A little pre-anniversary gift

The moon.

I see you staring at it every night.

So now you can see it whenever you want.

[MAN 3.]
Next fight!
Attaboy.

- [SCATTERED CHEERS.]

- [MEN BANTERING.]

[ALLISON'S HUSBAND.]
All right.

All right.
Quiet down, now, everyone!
Quiet down.
Thank you.

All right, now, look,
I can appreciate that everyone
has concerns about this.

And the truth is, we can go
back and forth on it all night.

But we have to act.

- And the time is now.

- Where are we gonna do it?
[SIGHS.]

- Stadtler's on Commerce.

- [LOW MURMURS.]

Okay, look, look, look
if we start the sit-in on Sunday,
which is five days before
the president's visit,
we should attract
national media attention.

But it has to be the
right kind of attention.

- I agree.

- [GROUP MURMURS.]

Look, there's no room for error here.

There is no room for images on the TV
of violence, aggression,
or even disrespect.

No matter what they do
to us, we have one rule:
honor and dignity at all times.

Now, look, these details
cannot leave this room
until we have finalized our plan.

- All right?
- [KNOCKING AT DOOR.]

[KNOCKING CONTINUES.]

- What should I do?
- Um
- I'll handle it.

- Allison, wait.

Sorry
we only cut women's hair here.

Black women's hair.

Funny then that your husband's inside.

Mr.
Mason, can I help you?
[MASON.]
Mind telling me what
you're doing here after hours?
[ALLISON'S HUSBAND.]
Well, this is
my wife's place of employment,
and some nights we use it as
a community gathering spot.

Gathering? For what?
What business is that of yours?
I own the building across the way,
a few others nearby.
[SNIFFS.]

I like things quiet on my street.

But you don't own this
building, now, do you?
[CLICKS TONGUE.]

Not yet.

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY.]

Well then, I'm gonna ask you
to step off the property.

Have a good night.

Did you just deliberately shut
this door on my foot, boy?
That's assault.

[GASPS, GRUNTS.]

[PEOPLE GASP, MURMUR.]

- [MAN 1.]
She ain't playin' around.

- [MAN 2 CHUCKLES.]

[MAN 1.]
Don't mess with her.
Damn.

I hope that felt good.

You have no idea.

So much for honor and dignity.

Him first.

Y'all can go on about your business now.

[INSECTS CHIRRING.]

[VANYA.]
I can't sleep.

Is there any of that cake left?
Sissy
are you smoking?
[CHUCKLES.]

[LAUGHS.]

- Want one?
- ["BE THANKFUL YOU'RE YOU" PLAYS SOFTLY.]

[SISSY.]
Mama would die all over
again if she saw me right now.

[VANYA.]
Never would've guessed
you had such a rebellious side.

[SISSY CHUCKLES.]
Men have sides.

Women have secrets.

And what are your secrets?
I have an escape plan.

What? [CHUCKLES.]

There is a coffee can
hidden under the kitchen sink.

Every penny I save that
Carl doesn't know about
- goes in there.

- Why?
[SIGHS.]
So I can breathe.

Carl's a fine man, a good man, but
good men still leave.

Or die.

Sooner or later, every woman
has to fend for herself.

How'd you two meet?
Because of a lie.

My sister told me
she wanted to go see a boy,
but really she was bringing me.

I was too shy for my own good back then.

Carl means well,
works hard, loves his boy.

But I had silly dreams back then.

What did you want to be?
A counter girl at Neiman Marcus.

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY.]
Really?
Daddy took us there once a year
to buy perfume for Christmas.

It was magical.

Music, dresses, the smells.

All the ladies at the counters
looked like livin' dolls.
Still do.

Could you ever imagine
bein' that elegant?
Hey.

You're plenty elegant.

Hi, Luther.

Hey, Autumn.
How's business?
Still waiting for the
big tippers to show up.

[LUTHER.]
Who's the half-wit
bothering Mr.
Ruby?
[AUTUMN.]
No idea,
but he's been putting away vodka gimlets
like they're gonna run out of limes.

Oh, yeah? He give you any trouble?
Not yet.

We should do business, Jack.

- [AUTUMN.]
But he's getting there.

- [CARL.]
I can get you a deal
- on good showerheads.

- You guys want some more?
We okay here?
I'm more worried about the kid.

What kid?
By the stage.

I told him we don't allow minors.

Oh, yeah?
And what'd he say?
[CHUCKLES.]
He asked what
time I was getting off work.

[AUTUMN LAUGHS SOFTLY.]

She's too young for you.

Nice to see you too, Luther.

What do you want?
For you to stop hovering
like an ambitious stripper
and sit down with me.

How long have you been here?
A year, thanks to you.

I'm sorry, Luther.
I know
that couldn't have been easy.

I thought everybody was dead.

[CARL.]
Come on, Jack! Don't make me beg!
- [JACK.]
Just back off.

- I gotta go.

Luther, wait.

Look, I get it, okay?
I know what it's like
to be stuck in time
[SIREN WAILING.]

thinking this is how you're gonna
live out the rest of your life.

On the run,
and not knowing if you're ever gonna
see the people you love again,
and to be in an unfamiliar world.

But Luther, you're not alone.

We have to find the others
because the world ends
again in ten days.

I have no idea how to stop it.

I don't give a shit.
