Guide to Temporal Anomalies.

Chapter 68, "The Grandfather Paradox.
"
[TYPEWRITER DINGS.]

[NARRATOR.]
It's New Jersey, 1953,
and Elmer Tatelman
hates his grandfather.

Elmer blames everything
on his grandfather.

His mother's pain, his father's death,
and his own sad life.

How many times do I have to
tell you, no goddamn peas!
You don't like what I cook,
you can make it yourself!
[NARRATOR.]
This could have been
just another sad tale about soup,
except for one thing.

Elmer is about to invent
[ELECTRICITY CRACKLING.]

time travel.

You see, Elmer has decided the
key to his future happiness
is to go back in time
and kill his grandfather.

Sidney Tatelman?
That's me.

- Whoa!
- [PATRONS GASP.]

[NARRATOR.]
Elmer completed his mission,
but he's made one crucial mistake.

[WOMAN MOANING.]

[NARRATOR.]
He went too far back in time.

[MAN.]
You're so beautiful.

Oh baby! [MOANING.]

[NARRATOR.]
You see, murdering
his grandfather in 1905
meant that Elmer's mother didn't
exist to meet his father in 1925.

[BUZZER SOUNDS.]

[NARRATOR.]
Which made certain
that Elmer himself was never born.

[BUZZER SOUNDS.]

[NARRATOR.]
Elmer killed his grandfather,
so his mother was never born.

But if his mother was never
born, Elmer no longer exists.

But if Elmer no longer exists,
how could he possibly
kill his grandfather?
And around and around we go.

Elmer has created a paradox,
the grandfather paradox.

The most pernicious problem
in The Commission
Handbook of Paradox Protocols.

This story is not true.

But if it were, Elmer would have placed
time, space, and every
living thing in grave peril.

[AUDIENCE CHEERING.]

[NARRATOR.]
Don't be an Elmer!
[MAN IN AUDIENCE.]
Bravo!
[NARRATOR.]
We've been lucky so far.

With your help, constant vigilance,
and a little strategic violence,
the Commission will make certain
nothing like this ever happens.

[CHEERING CONTINUES.]

[NARRATOR.]
Or God help us all.

[WOMAN IN AUDIENCE.]
Bravo!
Go on.
Go! [LAUGHS.]

But when will I see you again?
Go on.
Go before someone sees you.

[SIGHS.]

Mmm.

[CONTENTED GRUNT.]

[STAN GRUNTS.]

- [DIEGO.]
I'm so confused.

- Shocking.

Well, someone killed our
mothers, so we shouldn't exist.

But clearly, we do exist,
and the universe can't
handle it, which is a problem.

Big problem.
[SIGHS.]

- Yah!
- Stanley!
Now is not the time to
be doing karate, okay?
- Mom said I need to practice.

- Yeah, well, she's not wrong.

- You're very bad.

- Well, I saved your pathetic ass.

Okay, hold on.
Five,
so we caused a paradox.

- What does that mean?
- It's hard to say.

It's all been theoretical until now,
but things have started to disappear.

What things?
Right now?
Uh, lobsters.

And a shit ton of cows!
But I have a feeling this
is just the beginning.

A feeling? Aren't you retired?
I want nothing more.

You know, you can't drag us through hell
because you have an itch
only an apocalypse can scratch
and then expect us to
deal with the fallout.

You're not the boss.

Fine, I'm the messenger,
and I'm telling you
something terrible is coming.

Then let's go attack the Sparrows,
get the briefcase, and go home.

This is our home, Allison.
Accept it.

[CLATTERING.]

- That's it! I'm telling your mom.

- Ooh!
Wait, where's Lila?
Shower.
I told her
she could stay with us.

[VIKTOR.]
Wait.
When did Lila get back?
Five, where you going?
Go talk to somebody who only
has half her head up her ass.

[KLAUS.]
Don't leave, Five.
Don't leave.

[FIVE.]
No, Klaus.
I'm leaving.

I mean, he has a good track
record with this stuff.

- I feel like we should listen to him.

- Sure.

Hey, quick question.

[STAN.]
Cobra Kai! Yeah!
Do none of you heartless bastards
care about our murdered moms?
Klaus, the only one that
we knew plugged into a wall.

Oh yeah? Well, this is my real mother.

And she's called Rachel.

[VOICE BREAKING.]
And I have her eyes.

See?
Come on!
We need to find out who did
this! This is the thing!
This is the main thing!
- Is that all you want?
- Yeah.

'Cause it's obviously Dad, all
right? He knew where we were born.

He hated us in '63.
Boom.
Murders.

You think Dad is capable
of killing innocent people?
- [DIEGO GUFFAWS.]

- Absolutely.

Oh, it's Murder City, buddy.

Yeah, I guess so.

Little late for a meeting, pal.

I was being held captive.

By the Sparrows.

What?
Wait.
Did none of you notice?
- We're happy you're home safe and sound.

- Yeah.
Oh my God.

- [ALLISON.]
Stop lying.

- Oh yeah.
Okay.
Nice.

- Did they hurt you?
- Who? The Sparrows?
God, no.
Not at all.
Excellent hosts.

- Really quite charming, actually.

- [STAN GRUNTS.]

Oh, and you should see their gym.

Outstanding!
I really think we got
these guys all wrong.

Says the guy they kidnapped.

[WHISTLES.]

What did they want?
Oh.
Marcus.

He's missing.

- They want him back.
Unharmed.

- We don't have him.

Well,
damn.

I was hoping we'd solve that one quickly
and then move on to problem number two.

Disappearing people.

- [OMINOUS MUSIC SWELLS.]

- [GRUNTS.]

Ooh!
- Uh, it was it was the wind.

- [LUTHER.]
Who's the kid?
The hell are you doing in here?
Shaving my nest, you little perv.

Don't flatter yourself, Lila.

I like my women a little less
likely to kill me in my sleep.

We're learning so much about each other.

[FIVE.]
Mm.

[FIVE GRUNTS.]

[GROANS.]

[GRUNTS.]

All right, enough.
[GRUNTS.]

[PANTING.]

I'd forgotten how much I hate
you, you puny little turd.

The feeling's mutual, Lila.

As much as I'd love to stand
here shivving each other,
I have bigger concerns than you.

Yeah? Like what?
What do you know about
the grandfather paradox?
[PANTING.]

Well, I read the same
training manuals as you did.

- Why?
- Because it's happening.

- You being stupid?
- Hand over your briefcase.

I need to go to Herb and find out
how he let things get so cocked up.

Over there with my knickers.

Toss them to me, will you?
[OMINOUS MUSIC PLAYING.]

Lila,
why is it you have two briefcases?
[LILA.]
Mmm.

One's yours.
Nicked
it from the Sparrows.

- Go on.
Give it a go.

- [BRIEFCASE LATCH CLICKS.]

[LILA.]
First, we try yours.

[BRIEFCASE SPUTTERS, POWERS DOWN.]

- [BRIEFCASE LATCH CLICKS.]

- [LILA.]
And then we try mine.

- [BRIEFCASE SPUTTERS, POWERS DOWN.]

- Yeah.

This can't be happening.

The odds of one of them
failing, it's in the millions.

- But two of them
- Astronomical.
Yeah.

So, what does that mean exactly?
End of the world?
Oh, it's much worse than that.

[STRAINS.]

It means you and I
are gonna have to work together.

Shit.

[DIEGO.]
Discipline.
That's
what you need to learn.

When I was your age, I
was up at dawn, all right?
I was training, honing my skills.

The biggest thing,
- I was becoming a real man.

- Right.

- Is that why you wear those tight pants?
- [DOOR OPENS.]

- Lila?
- [LILA.]
Hmm?
You need to take this kid with you.

- The hell were you doing in there?
- Bathing.

- Together?
- Oh, okay.

Diego, we don't have time for this.

Lila and I have got
important shit to do.

- Wait.
What's more important than family?
- Hey, love.

End of the world, genius.

[DIEGO.]
Lila?
What's more important than us?
- There is no us, Diego.

- [BELL DINGS.]

[ELEVATOR DOOR OPENS.]

[DIEGO.]
Come here.

- What do you mean?
- Look, for you, it's been a couple days.

For me, it has been over
a decade.
I've moved on.

I've slept with many, many people.
Many.

The only relationship we have
left is the one with our child.

So you better not screw that up.

Wait! What am I supposed
to do with him, huh?
I got important shit going on too!
I doubt that.

Figure it out, Diego.
Be a dad.

[ELEVATOR WHIRS.]

How many is "many people"?
Way more than you, Papi.

- [STAN GASPS.]

- [DIEGO SNARLS.]

So, all the people on the
street just disappeared?
Well, no, not all of
them, just half of them.

Five did say animals were disappearing.

Okay, well, now it's definitely people.

Marcus was supposed to meet up with
us earlier, but he never showed.

What, you think this
grandfather thing ate Marcus?
- It can't just be a coincidence, right?
- [SIGHS.]
Great.

Now those Sparrow psychopaths
think we took their Number One.

We're never getting the briefcase back.

Okay, what if
What if we just told the truth?
Marcus is gone, and maybe
we're partially responsible.

That'll go well.

They'll throw us a party.

I bet they throw fantastic parties.

Listen.
Marcus was ready to
give us back the briefcase.

If the rest of his family are
even half as open-minded, you know,
maybe we can come to some kind
of an agreement, get it back.

Yeah, yeah.
Okay.

Well, if you guys are heading over
there, I should probably come along.

You know, uh, for protection.

Yeah.

Nice try, Stockholm.

Your ass is staying here.

Wha ?
- She's right.

- [LUTHER.]
What?
Who put you two in charge?
[QUIETLY.]
Look, Allison
She needs something to
take her mind off Claire.

So, we'll handle this.

Yeah.
Copy.

Hey, um
Thanks for looking out for her.

[RAVENS CAWING.]

[CHOPPING.]

We're getting tons of
missing person complaints
in a three-block radius.

- I was thinking hysteria.

- What are they up to?
Who?
The Umbrella Academy.

Use your head, Number Two.

First Marcus, now they're
grabbing civilians off the streets?
"Number Two"?
I suppose that means
you're Number One now?
Marcus is missing.

I'm taking the reins.

[CHUCKLES.]

[WINGS FLUTTERING.]

What? You think it should be you?
You had your chance once.

Didn't turn out too well, now, did it?
[BEN EXHALES SHARPLY.]

[RAVEN SHRIEKS.]

Say that again.

[WINCING.]

[TELEKINETIC WHOOSH.]

[RAVENS CAWING.]

Excuse me.
Children, do
you mind if I clean up?
Do it quickly.

[RAVENS CAWING.]

- You know I respect Marcus.

- Of course.

- I'd do anything to protect him.

- Sure.

But we've been Numbers Two and
Three for far too long, Fei.

With Marcus gone,
it's moving day.

[EXHALES.]

Change can be good.

[BEN.]
Think about it.

You, me, center stage.

Taking things to the next level.

So how do we handle
the Umbrella situation?
If they bring Marcus back, so be it.

If they don't,
then we have some decisions to make.

Marcus isn't coming back.
God took him.

God?
Yes, God is in the basement,
and he called Marcus home.

- Does she need a checkup?
- Focus, Fei.

We play this right,
Sparrow Academy is all ours.

[SIGHS.]

[BELL DINGS.]

Chet, hold my calls.

- [CHET.]
No.

- Good man.

[BELL RINGING.]

Can I get a room?
[CHET.]
Yes, sir, right with you.

[NEWSCASTER.]
We interrupt today's
regularly scheduled program
to bring you this late-breaking story.

Authorities are baffled
as hundreds of people across
the city have vanished,
seemingly without a trace
Another silly conspiracy theory.

have increased by a
staggering 500% in recent days.

However, with no bodies found,
no suspects, and no explanation,
police have been scrambling to
[OMINOUS MUSIC SWELLING.]

[RAVENS CAWING.]

You're one short.

Where's the rest of
your pathetic family?
Aww.
Is that the best you can do?
Last warning.

Yeah, you don't get to warn
me about shit, Flock of She-Gulls.

[LAUGHS.]

[BEN CLEARS THROAT.]

[BEN.]
Whatever.

Where the fuck is Marcus?
Marcus is, uh
[VIKTOR.]
Marcus, uh
Marcus is
Safe.

For now.

But that'll change real quick if
you don't do exactly as we say.

See? I told you they have him.

I warned Marcus, but no.

He said we had to hear
what you had to say.

Look, he wasn't wrong, okay? We
want to make things right with you
By kidnapping our brother?
- No, that's
- Yes.

Look, there is a lot more going on here.

The world is in trouble,
and we need to work together.

My brother could explain
it all a lot better than me,
but it's a time-traveling problem.

We caused a paradox, and that
paradox is swallowing things.

Lots of cows, and a dog,
a few lobsters,
but also people.

Look, I know it sounds like
Just give us the briefcase,
and we'll give you Marcus.

- What briefcase?
- The one we left in your house.

Deal.

The briefcase for our brother.

Great.

Hotel Obsidian, four o'clock sharp.

[ALLISON.]
Or we'll
send him back in pieces.

[DRAMATIC ORCHESTRAL MUSIC PLAYING.]

[STEAM HISSING.]

Oh Woof!
Ooh, that takes me back.

All right.

Whoa, what the hell was that?
What? You were losing them.

I'm an actor, I improvised.

Superb performance, Helen
Mirren, but we don't have Marcus.

Well, they don't know that.

What are we gonna do when
they show up and find out?
I don't know.
We'll figure that
out next.
But why don't you relax?
We're powerful superheroes.
It's
time we started acting like it.

Oh, like how you almost
turned a conversation with Ben
into a street fight?
- Come on, it's not like you.

- What does that mean?
Since when do you have a hair trigger?
You're usually the calm and cool one.

Yeah, and look how well
that worked out for me.

Viktor, we could go home tonight, okay?
And for the first time in days, I feel
hope, so please don't step on that.

[SIGHS.]
Okay, but come on, we
have to be smarter about this.

We don't know enough about the Sparrows.

I don't give a shit
about them.
I've got you.

No one's gonna win a fight against
me and my tiny badass brother.

[SIGHS.]
Okay.
Well, I
need the briefcase too.

It's my only way back to Sissy.

But no more improvising, okay?
[SIGHS.]

We do things together
from now on, got it?
Got it.

[CAR HORNS HONKING.]

- What are you doing?
- What are you doing?
Security assessment.
Our enemies
can attack us from anywhere.

[CHUCKLES.]
That's cool.

No, that is not cool.

But lucky for everyone, I'm on it.

The trick is to be prepared.

Now, I need you to stay away from
the hotel for a few hours, all right?
It's not safe.
Go buy some donuts.

I'm allergic to donuts.

What do you mean, you're
allergic to donuts?
You also hate fun?
- It's the gluten, asshat.

- Hey, watch your mouth.

Stop trying to get rid of
me.
Everyone tries to do that.

Maybe just try being less annoying.

[LAUGHS.]
Oh my God.
You're bad at this.

Just go somewhere for
a few hours, all right?
It's a big city.
Have fun.

Mom would never let me walk around
a strange city all on my own.

She doesn't trust me.

That's because she's a terrible person.

And I'm amazing.

Remember that.

It's eight dollars.

That's a month's salary
for a kid.
Get outta here.

I'm so good at this.

[KLAUS STRAINING.]

[GRUNTS.]

[GROANS.]

[GRUNTS.]

[SNEEZES.]

[GROANS.]

Oh, thank God.

[SNIFFS.]

[GASPS.]
Have at you!
[POLICE SIRENS WAILING ON TELEVISION.]

- Did you do it?
- How did you get in here?
Did you kill our moms?
Moms? What in the world
are you talking about?
Please just
Please just tell me whether or not
you killed them, and then I'll leave.

I promise.

I don't care enough about you to lie.

Do I look fit to murder anyone?
Well, maybe not now, but
On your feet, boy.

- You're the drunk one, aren't you?
- No, no.
I'm Klaus.

I'm the spiritual one.

[KNOCK AT DOOR.]

[JAYME.]
All right,
Reg, you know the drill.

Pills, bills, and num-nums.

I'm not hungry.

Come on.
I'm really not in the
mood for your bullshit today.

- [GULPS.]

- [ALPHONSO.]
Get a move on.

[REGINALD GULPS.]

Sit.

Now
- What is this?
- Doesn't concern you, old man.

We say sign, you sign.

Don't make me get Christopher.

[PEN SCRATCHING.]

You're a champ, Reg.

[SNIFFS.]

Woo! Jesus, Reggie.
You stink.

[SNIFFS.]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC BUILDS.]

Hurry up, douchebag.
I'm starving.

I'm telling the robot
to give you a bath.

[SIGHS.]

[DOOR OPENS.]

[DOOR CLOSES.]

My God, Dad.

What happened to you?
[ENERGY PULSING FAINTLY.]

If they left a briefcase behind,
Grace will know where it is.

You don't think it's weird that
they "forgot" something here?
What if it's a trap? What if
we open it and it explodes?
Please.
They aren't that smart.

[PULSING INTENSIFIES.]

[BEN.]
Grace? What the
hell's going on down here?
[RAVEN CAWS.]

Sweet Jesus.

[GRACE.]
Jesus is one possible
interpretation of this deity.

Or perhaps it's the reincarnation
of Buddha or Brahma the Creator.

Yeah, yeah, whatever.

Be careful, Number Two.

You don't want to disturb his slumber.

Who knows who the waking
god will choose next.

Grace, is this what took Marcus?
He went right up and touched it.

Brazen man.

The light of the Lord is
too much for mere mortals.

Grace, when did God get here?
Two days ago, with our new visitors.

[ENERGY THRUMMING LOUDLY.]

[ELECTRICITY CRACKLES.]

Nice suit.

Thanks.
Tailor in the
lobby is a master craftsman.

Still, I will miss those pasty knees.

Yeah, well, we could all stand
to be showing a little
less skin these days.

[MURMURS.]
For you.

Yeah.

Ready to hot-wire this briefcase?
[EXHALES.]
Let's do this.

Ah shit!
[BELL DINGS.]

- [ELECTRICITY FLUCTUATES.]

- [GASPS.]

- [WAILS IN PAIN.]

- [LAUGHS.]

Shit! Lila!
[GROANS.]

[LILA CONTINUES LAUGHING.]

[FIVE.]
Shit!
Yeah, I was 99% sure that wouldn't work.

Well, I'm glad my pain amuses you.

You have no idea.
It's like my therapy.

Well, now we are down to
one half-dead briefcase,
and my jumps are only accurate
up to a couple minutes.

So, essentially, we're screwed.

Maybe.

Maybe not.

Oh, I hate that smile.

Listen, on your own, your
little jumps are rather pathetic.

- [SCOFFS.]

- But if we powered up together,
you blinking, me mimicking that blink,
I think we could create
some kind of feedback loop
and get enough juice
to jump-start the case.

- Both of us together.

- We'd have to trust each other.

[SCOFFS.]
Lila, you just
spent the better part
of the last ten days
trying to end my life.

- You killed my birth parents.

- Fair enough.

And your entire family stood by
while that greasy Swede put a
cap in the woman who raised me.

The Handler was going to kill you, Lila.

In fact, she did kill you.

Then I rolled back time and
let the meatball do his work.

Oh, and by the way,
if you're leading Diego on as
payback for what happened in Texas,
you're pissing up the wrong ladder there
'cause that idiot may actually love you.

The Handler never did.

What do you know? You
spent decades shagging a mannequin.

Do not talk about
Delores like that, Lila.

This is insane.

There is no way we're gonna get past
this to make it to the Commission.

Okay, perhaps we can't get to trust,
but there is a certain
honesty in white-hot hatred.

Then come over here, you
god-awful little shit.

And hold my hand.

- This is a mixtape for the enemy?
- Hey.

Sloane is not the enemy.

They are not the enemy.
This
is all one big misunderstanding.

And if our family could just
behave ourselves for once,
then we could all work together.

And then Sloane and I can fall in love,
get married,
buy a dog,
grow old on a porch.

Ugh.

Jesus, Luther.

You're pathetic.

Is Is Sloane the gravity one?
Oh shit.

- You guys had gravity sex.

I told you not to be here.

What's a Molotov cocktail?
Is it a drink?
- No.

- Can I try one?
No.

I've had beer, you know.

It's a homemade bomb, okay?
Sweet.
I can help.

Ever made a pipe bomb? 'Cause I have.

I've blown up tons of mailboxes.

- There are secrets in the mix.

- Mm-hmm?
So what's my job here,

I love this movie.

Never turn your back, my boy.

Especially not to your children.

You try your best, give them
your all, but it's too much.

Then it's pills in the porridge
and something extra in the tea.

Next thing you know, you've
signed your life away.

All your dreams have been quashed.

All your plans run aground,
and the worst of it?
No one ever comes to visit anymore.

But you wouldn't understand that.

[SOFT CHUCKLE.]

Oh, Reggie.

You got no idea.

You ever been to a Baskin-Robbins?
Can't say that I have.

They're like You know the ones.

They're like half a Dunkin' Donuts,
and they're open all
night, and it's 3:00 a.
m.
,
and nobody's switching out those
giant empty barrels of fudge ripple.

That's me.

I feel like scoop after scoop
after scoop's been taken out of me.

Brother [MAKES CROAKING NOISE.]

[KLAUS INHALES DEEPLY.]

Lover,
a whole world,
and now
my mom.

I have no idea what
you're talking about.

I feel like if I could just
find the person who did it
Do you want some ice cream?
Would that shut you up?
- Yeah.
Yeah, I do.

- [REGINALD CHUCKLES.]

[REGINALD GASPS.]

- Damn pills.

- I can help you with that.

The ice cream?
No, the pills.
If you
don't wanna take 'em.

Oh, no, no, no, no, no.

That's against the rules.
I
have to take them every day.

All you have to do is just
pop to the side such as this.

[MURMURS.]
Ta-da!
Old necessary rehab trick.

I didn't care for you when last we met,
but I must admit you're growing on me.

I guess, for him.
It's whatever.

Well, should we say something?
You know? I mean, make a formal
gesture? Welcome him as brothers.

God, no.
Just roll with it, man.

Don't say anything, and don't be weird.

Okay.
But not saying something
feels weird, right? I mean
Shouldn't we, I don't know
mark the occasion somehow?
You just wanna throw a party.

Why do you hate tiny sandwiches?
Hey, what's up?
Luther wants to throw you a big,
stupid party so you feel loved.

[CHUCKLES.]

Oh.

Do you feel loved?
Yeah, I I do.

Good.
You are.

Can we all get back to
saving the world now?
I, uh
I really like the hair.

Is that a number ten?
Yeah, that's a good choice.

Really frames your face.

Thanks.

I'll see you later.

I'm gonna be on you like white on rice.

Sneeze, I'll be there
with a handkerchief.

If your nose isn't clean,
I'll wipe it in the dirt.
