Family Day

Guys, be honest, is it too early to decide where we're gonna eat after this? Arrived at destination.
Please exit the vehicle.
What about ramen? You guys like shawarma, or is it too spicy? - Shut up.
- Okay.
All right.
Come on.
- What are they? - Clones.
They're bodies of people who uploaded.
It's the same thing.
They have to regrow their heads from stem cells, see? They're empty until someone downloads back in.
High-tech shit.
Why would anyone risk downloading? I mean, didn't they see that guy blow up? It's the master plan of the one percent.
Spend your life pillaging the earth, right? And just when all that karma catches up with you, upload.
Chill out in Lakeview for a few decades, while the scientists clean up your mess, and then download, do it all over again for the rest of time.
So I'll get these ones.
You get those ones.
Well, you can't always tell who they are.
They're assholes.
That's all you need to know.
Okay, s some of them might be good guys.
You know, you can't just - ruin their chance to - Be parasites with private jets who think planting a tree in the Amazon cancels out your crimes? Oh, savage! Bath time's over, bitches.
Fuck! Come on, get up.
Get up.
Guys, it's booby-trapped.

- Watch out.
In a few minutes, this room's gonna smell worse than Ivan's apartment.
Let's go, let's go.
I'm sorry, Mr Jake Paul? I can't see jack squat.
Where are my goggle thingies? God, millennials are so lame.
It's Family Day, and the new prototypes are here.
Okay, looks good.

I said I was sorry.

- No, no.
You're just missing your family.
I'm sorry they're not coming.
Maybe your dad just felt guilty about the whole murdering me thing, you know? Maybe.
Yeah, whatevs.
Meet your new brother.
- What should we call him? - Mom.
This is so weird.
You can hang with my family today.
- Yeah? - Sure.
Thanks, babe.
I can't wait to see them.
Everybody here's so old.
Oh, yeah.
There's so much great stuff to do, they're gonna have the best day.
Your niece knows how to use a gun, right? Hmm? - Oh, who's a baby? - Uncle Nathan.

Oh, my g Look at you.
You're so tall.
- Really? - Yeah.
Mom! It's okay if I call you that, right? Let's hug.
- Oh.
- Sorry for your loss, Ingrid.
Your weird and preventable loss.
You uploaded for a man you're not even married to.
You can call me Mom.
Thanks, Mom.
I'm in a better place.
You look really pretty.
That's because I just had my tongue lengthened.
Thank you so much for noticing.
- Oh.
- Okay.
Maybe roll that thing back up.
Let's, uh, - get this started, all right? - Yeah.
Woo-hoo! Family Day is huge, so make sure that your angels get superstar results.
Got it.
How do I do that exactly? You yell at them with simple words because they're stupid cows, and cows respond well to a good kicking.
Is it dangerous? Uh, no.
Uh, just looks like someone accidentally put some plant code into these chairs, and now they're growing.
You've grown, too, Dylan, since last time I saw you.
Still a kid, just 20% taller.
I told you, the full adult update was too expensive.
Whose dick do I have to suck to get some chest hair around here? Dylan.
- Although we were hoping for a - Like a a bug finder reward thing.
Sorry, we don't do that, but I've heard the archery game's paying out twice as many credits as it should.
I'm supposed to fix it, but it might take me a while.
Fuck yeah.
Thank you.
You're an angel.
Actually, I'm Redesign and a maintenance engineer now.
It's a promotion.
- Ready? - Yup.
- What side? - Left side, left side, left side, left side.
Too easy.
To your left.
- Okay.
Left, left.
- Left, way left.
- Other left.
Ingrid, Ingrid.
- Left, left, left, left, left.
- Look, it's past you.
- What? - For God's sakes.
- Mom! Did I get it? Other left, other left.
Ingrid, it's just gone by you.
Oh, for God's sakes.
Oh, my God.
You're so good at everything.
I thought it was your left.
You said I said your left.
Oh, hey, um, I'll be right back.
Just make sure they don't kill each other, okay? - Okay.
- Okay.
- Bye.
- Tinsley! Shit.
Where you off to in those sweet khakis? Nathan, it's-it's me.
That's not funny, Tinsley.
I'm not joking.
It's me.
I'm back.
How do I know it's really you? I think you can tell.
Um I can't believe I'm looking at you, and it's actually it's actually you.
I never thought I'd hear from you again, Nora.
I can tell.
God, lower.
Ingrid, um got me out of 2Gig, and now we're, um Can we go somewhere and talk? It's It's none of my business.
You don't have to explain.
- I wanted to tell you - But you didn't, and it's all good.
I'm with someone, too.
That That's great.
Yeah, yeah.
He's-he's cool.
He's so, so cool.
And he's alive, so that's convenient.
The best.
Ingrid uh, she gave up everything and uploaded for me, so that is Well, that was, um surprising.
- That's great.
- Yeah.
I mean, uh, well, sorry for your loss.
That's intense.
Well, she's an intense lady.
You know, but, uh, it's all good, brother.
That was weird.
I don't know what that was.
- It was so weird.
- I know.
Man, you used to be cool.
What happened to you, man? Nora, are you okay? Look, I really got to get back to work.
Nathan? Where's Nathan? Oh.
He's talking to his little friend.
Nancy, isn't it? Hi.
Lovely to see you again.
What a fun outfit.
I-I work in I.
? No shit, a promotion? That's awesome.
Well, don't get too excited.
They'll probably fire me soon.
No, they won't.
Hurry up, Nathan.
We have to take Mom to the memory parlor.
See you later, brother.
I have a surprise for you.
Meet me by the Grey Zone at noon.
Uh-oh, high noon.
We gonna have a shoot-out, cowboy? That's right, Paco.
Then we'll go to the saloon, you know, spit into a metal thing Oh, not big on westerns, huh? Uh, no.
I, uh, believe I deserve points for trying, though.
See you at noon, okay? Some strange hack is happening at the tennis courts.
Well, fix it.
Oh, I don't know how.
I'll poke some buttons, I guess.
I will handle it myself, then.
God Another point for them.
Come on, man.
They're set to Pong 1977.
Their brains are, like, 20 kilobytes.
What is going on here? I didn't call for you.
We're good.
Uh, take five, Luke.
Good morning, beautiful.
Are you the Prefera I've heard so much about? No, I'm Luke's angel.
God, this really is heaven.
Cute, but I've heard it before.
This is Jesse, one of my best buds from the army.
Ma'am, Luke knew I've always dreamed of upload, so he used his Family Day pass on me.
This place is amazing.
We're gonna eat a bathtub of tiramisu after our "teanis" match.
New game.
Only way to score points is to hit the other guy in the crotch.
Well, that's stupid.
You're the only one that can get hurt.
Jesse's balls are safe in the real world.
Yeah, it makes me feel alive.
You want to play a round, huh? You can be on Jesse's team.
Yeah I'm a boss now.
I don't have time to mess around with you.
Oh, well, if you were a real boss, you could decide how to spend your day.
Well, maybe a round or two.
Oh, you fucker.
It's on.
Let's go, Jesse.
Oh, so cute.
Did you know Fendi designed the spit-up rags and the spit-up? These digital babies creep me out.
Well, I think they're a very interesting invention.
It's an opportunity for uploads to experience the joys of parenthood.
Right, Nathan? Uh, well, I guess if you screw them up, it doesn't really matter, right? Well, we wouldn't screw them up.
But they're not real babies, Ingrid.
I know that, Viv.
I know that.
You're supposed to follow her.
Am I? Yeah.
If you see me walking like that, I am big mad.
Oh, no.
We don't want Big Mad Neveah.
Don't want Big Mad Neveah.
Imagine me a dad.
I can barely take care of myself.
Everybody run.
It's Big Mad Neveah! Nice shot.
No, no, no, no, no.
Foot fault.
- Second serve.
- Fine.
Whoa! Nice shot there.
Goddamn it.
I am furious at Nathan.
Hm, I notice you often express your feelings as anger, but maybe you're really lonely and sad.
Fuck you, Helen.
I have a right to be pissed off.
I am so clearly committed to this relationship, but Nathan won't even consider a digital baby.
Ingrid Kannerman wants to be a mom.
Let's look closely at the root of this baby desire.
Perhaps you want something of your own because you worry that you're unlovable.
Why do you always think I'm worried I'm unlovable? I am so much more lovable than than you will ever be.
I mean, what I really worry about is how bad of a therapist you are.
And so then Shona told Brody she's sick of him being rude to her, and that he's not as funny as he thinks he is.
Ooh, go off, Shona.
I'm so proud of that girl.
She really learned to love herself.
Hey, that's Ingrid's dad.
Right? Wait, what? Are you sure it was him? Yeah, I remember him from my sleepover dinner party.
What is he doing here? I'm sure there's some reasonable explanation.
He's here to surprise Ingrid? - No chance.
- The grandmother? Maybe.
Y-You guys head to the memory parlor.
- I'll meet you there, okay? - Okay.
- I'll see you in a minute.
- Nevaeh.
So, the bottle auto-refills after every use.
You can pay as you go Hey, Nathan.
It's Tinsley.
- Oh, hey.
- Yeah.
I got my own avatar, based on me.
Look at you.
Uh, oh, uh Sorry.
Excuse me.
Hey, hey, hey, hey.
Is there somewhere we can go and talk real quick, in private? Kannerman is here, in Lakeview.
Well, it's Family Day.
That family hates each other.
What if he's using it as a cover to meet with someone else? - You could always ask Ingrid.
- I I did, okay? She doesn't know anything about who's behind my murder.
- I think it might be the Ludds.
- That's impossible.
Why? I mean, th-they attacked Freeyond.
They-they are against digital afterlife.
What if they used Kannerman to get my code, then had me killed? Look, I'm telling you, it's not the Ludds.
- How can you be so sure? - Because The guy I'm dating, Matteo, he's a Ludd.
What? Nora, how could you be so naive? The Ludds are crazy.
The Ludds are not crazy.
They sacrifice a lot for what they believe in.
You know, maybe that's just not something you can relate to anymore.
I'm just trying to protect you - Well, I'm good.
- From Really.
I trust Matteo.
- Okay.
- He's never lied to me.
Look, I got to go.
If I find out anything about Kannerman, I'll text you.
- Morning.
- Morning.
It's me.
It worked.
- Hey, nice to see you.
- Oh.
I-I'm sorry.
I-I-I just, I can't kiss this face.
It's just - Oh, God.
- wrong.
Totally get it.
So, what's my big surprise? Yes.
- This.
- Thank you so much.
Oh, it's a free diaper bag.
No, close.
It's a hyperworm.
We are going to fuck up Family Day.
All you need to do is leave it in the lobby, near the concierge desk.
Matteo, what about all the people? Horizen's the enemy, not not them.
They're safe at home in VR suits.
You know that.
Okay, not the uploads.
It's debatable, you consider them people.
This is going to make a big splash.
The AI system will be infected with our propaganda message.
It's all worked out.
- Look, I know, but - L Look.
If you want to pursue justice, sometimes you have to make a few rich people uncomfortable, okay? Ow.
You're gonna Ah! What what is Hang on.
Come on.
In my own house? Get off him.
I want to clean him up.
He's a real man.
I'm not encouraging her It.
I'm not encouraging You know, your dad and Pastor Rob don't think you can do this.
Your dad thinks you're too kindhearted, and Pastor Rob thinks you're soft.
Okay, I'm not soft.
I know.
I know you're committed to changing things.
Well, this is how you do it.
Okay? You're the only one here who could pull this off.
I know you won't disappoint us 'cause I believe in you, Nora.
Oh, give her to me.
Sorry, Miss Kannerman, I didn't "I'm sorry, Miss Kannerman, I didn't see you there.
" Just watch where I'm going.
Okay? Stop staring at me, you useless, pre-programmed sack of shit.
Oh Hey.
You will become human before that woman ever does.
And there, dangling from the door handle, was a bloody hook! "Attack of the Hook Man.
" Okay, I totally forgot about this.
I can't believe I thought it was okay to tell a six-year-old that story.
What a dummy.
Why? I liked it.
You were terrified.
- No way.
- Mom? Oh, your mother was furious with us.
You slept with the lights on for an entire week.
No, no, that does not sound like me.
We are the Ludds.
Save your souls.
Abolish Lakeview.
Delete the rich.
You are under attack by the Ludd army.
Revolution has come to Horizen.
We are the Ludds.
Take that! Revolution has come to Horizen.
Revolution has come to Horizen.
- The fuck? - Abolish Lakeview.
Delete the rich.
- Huh? - The revolution Hey, something's going down.
- You think? - The revolution I can't believe I wasted my day playing your dumb game.
to Horizen! Delete the rich.
Oh, you were such a cutie.
What happened? Oh, Nathan.
- What is going on? - I don't know.
This has never happened before.
Okay, um You guys better go.
- What about you? - Oh, I'm fine.
I'll call you tomorrow, okay? I want to hear more about that Brody and Shona drama.
I love you.
About that digital baby thing, maybe it's not such a bad idea? Mom, no.
I'm I'm a fun uncle, okay? But I'm selfish, I'm immature, - I lie - No, Nathan, you are not the man you used to be, and the guy you were wasn't so bad, either.
Go, go, go, go.
We're doing our best.
Everyone, stay calm.
You're gonna be okay.
Angels will be on their way to help you.
My team is working on the problem.
Save your souls.
Abolish Lakeview.
Delete the rich.
I got this.
I got this! I-It'll be okay.
How is it replicating so fast? Hey, guys I I think it's the, uh Shh.
New girl, we're trying to think.
Oh, hey, it's working.
- I did it.
- No.
I did.
Uh, the virus was replicating inside the AI guys, so now that I've shut them down, we should be able to clean up everything else.
How did you work that out so fast? I I don't know.
Lucky guess.
Where's the motherfucker that fucked up my day? Helping some kids who were freaked out by the virus.
Helping? Or making it worse? That man is a hazard.
You know, Luke was my commanding officer, and he was exceptional.
- What? - Iran was the first war with autonomous drones, so it was intense, but Luke never showed the stress.
He kept morale high when things were rough.
Always figured out ways to make us smile or help us out.
That's what got a lot of us home.
I'm having a hard time processing this.
We're talking about the same Luke? Thanks for today.
It was a pleasure.
Now I know why Luke says all those nice things about you.
Luke says nice things? About me? What nice things? Well, don't leave me hanging.
Of course, Miss Kannerman.
I hope you and Mr.
Brown had a magnificent day.
- Would you like to - Shut up.
I don't need a running commentary.
Ma'am? I try so hard, and nothing works.
Yeah, I'm spectacularly beautiful; Nathan doesn't seem to care.
He's he's only in love with me when I'm not me, and I try to be good to his mom, but she hates me, and he takes her side, and I think that we're meant to be together for eternity, but it is taking forever to get him there.
I'm I'm lovable, right? Yes.
Miss Kannerman, I love you.
Well, this is your floor.
Jesus Christ.
Thank you.
Guys, it's-it's not really a big deal.
Hey, babe.
You okay? I was worried about you.
Did you get hit by a glitch or something? I saw a man stuck halfway inside a wall.
And then I heard that floor 11,111 just disappeared.
God I'm exhausted.
Yeah, I bet.
You know, um, I was thinking, nothing's certain in this life, even here, and, um, maybe you aren't crazy for wanting a digital baby.
Yeah? Yeah.
Aw, babe.
You know, I think we would make a really cute kid.
- Yeah.
- With my face and your hair Well, your abs.
- Mm-hmm.
- And our hair.
- And, um - Yeah.
Someday soon.
- Someday.
- Soon.
Mm, someday.
Someday soon, someday soon.
Mm My goodness.
Um Wh Is the new tongue too long? Uh Just just a little.
Damn it.
