V: The Final Battle (1984) s01e03 Episode Script

Episode 3

It's okay.
That's a girl.
Come on.
You shouldn't be up yet.
Your dad said you liked "Elizabeth.
" I like that name.
Elizabeth? Is that the other one? -Robin, you should be resting -I wanna see it.
Oh, God.
Oh, God! I'll take you back to your room.
That thing's my baby! -Where are we? -Where we get off.
In what? In these.
Are you joking? We're gonna skydive out of here? That's right.
It's our only chance.
-You know how high we are? -Actually, I do.
-There's no other choice.
-I got a better idea.
-Let's get a fighter and cruise home.
-Get back here.
Put that thing on.
I want the ship cordoned off, searched section by section.
I want Donovan and that traitor found! Is that the sound of panic in your voice? The situation is under control.
Under control, you say? A trusted lieutenant betrayed you escaped with Donovan and things are "under control"? They'll be captured and dealt with appropriately.
I hope so.
Otherwise, I'll be forced to strip you of your command.
-ls that clear? -Quite clear.
Must I draw a picture? Carry out my orders.
Very well.
I don't understand why you're making such a fuss.
-Young cadets do this their first week.
-All right.
What do I do? Just lower yourself over the edge.
-The force of air will do the rest.
-When we land If we land -you'll come and join us.
-No, my network has spread to Earth.
I can do more good down there.
Now go.
-Cadets really do this? -No.
Sounded good, though, didn't it? -Like human skin.
-lt's strange.
We do not shed our skin until we have six years.
Only a week old, and she's the size of a 2-year-old.
-lt's not normal.
-She all right? -As far as I can tell, she's fine.
-Julie, Willie, you better come quick.
He's getting worse.
I don't know what to do.
I've tried everything.
I too have done all that I know how.
I have the fear he is dying.
Willie, please, can't you do something? I am sorry.
It's the first time she's ever cried.
Hey, Julie, come here.
Take a look at this.
-A blood sample from the baby's corpse.
-lt's teaming with bacteria.
And this one is the bacterium from Willie's GI tract.
Andthat one.
This is E.
coli, it's found in every one of us.
-The baby's a hybrid of the two.
I bet this hybrid is the bacterium that killed him.
-You thinking what I'm thinking? -Julie, this is it.
This is the breakthrough, a bacterium they have no defense against.
-Oh, my God! -IKatie! -Her face, it's all swollen.
-She spat venom on her.
One one-thousand, two one-thousand, three one-thousand, four five one-thousand, six one-thousand, seven one-thousand eight one-thousand, nine one-thousand, 10 one-thousand.
Come on, IKatie.
One one-thousand, two one-thousand She's coming around.
Harmony, get the oxygen.
-Okay, honey.
-IKatie? -Someone should kill that monster.
She's your granddaughter.
It's good of you to take time out for us from your schedule, John.
I think this is very important to you.
It pains me to say this, because I'm genuinely fond of Diana But after the Donovan fiasco I can't keep silent.
She's become a liability.
I'll relieve you now.
-I'm on duty until -You're dismissed.
She is my most valued aide.
And she's done wonders in the scientific field.
But her running of this operation is a disaster.
-Aren't you being harsh? -She trusted Kristine.
She allowed Julie and Donovan to escape.
And worst of all, she exposed you to public humiliation in the center.
-That was your responsibility.
-I can't do my job with an amateur interfering with every decision.
-I'm sick of bickering.
-I agree.
We must focus on the rebels.
This operation has become a nightmare.
One that will soon be over.
-I've planted a spy in the resistance.
-And I will coordinate the offensive.
-We will rid you of this nuisance.
-And Diana? I've ordered her to stick to scientific activities where I'm sure her record will continue to be superb.
Very well.
All I can say is -I had better see results.
And soon.
-Of course.
-Wanna help me in the lab? -Sure.
Julie! Sean! I knew you'd come back.
Come here.
You look taller.
-Are you okay? Did they hurt you? -No, you? Yeah, they kept me from you.
-I know what you wanna do.
-What? -Play baseball with me.
-I don't like baseball.
-Since when? You love baseball.
-No I don't.
I think it stinks.
It's always been your favorite.
Take it easy.
He's been through a lot.
It'll take time.
I guess you're right.
Maybe I'm rushing him.
Brief him on the bacteria.
We discovered a hybrid bacterium.
It killed the baby reptile.
It's also in Elizabeth's GI tract.
-But it doesn't affect her.
-How about us? We don't even know about the Visitors.
The twin was a mix of the two.
It may be as dangerous as nerve gas or as harmless as baby food.
-We need to test this stuff.
-A lot.
-lt is time to feed them.
-Okay, go on.
-No way.
-Why not? Come on, even you wouldn't do that.
In a cage or out.
What's the difference? Why not? -ls that the stuff? -That's it.
We'll find some other way of testing it.
All right, champagne and caviar.
Nothing is too good for us.
Right, Brian? To the rewards of leadership.
Yeah, all right.
All right.
Could you get that? See, you get some power and suddenly you have lots of friends.
-Delivery for Daniel Bernstein.
-Right this way.
Got two cases of California brew.
Who signs for it? The good times don't stop coming, do they? -I didn't order this.
-Well, I didn't either.
-Maggie? -Shut up.
Yeah, we get upset when somebody tries to refuse delivery.
But not at all inferior.
You're the punk that killed Ruby.
You like hurting little old ladies, hey, punk? She was a spy, and I'm proud of what I did.
-You gonna kill him? -As many times as I can.
I got a better idea.
-That's it? -Trust me.
-Yes, who is this? -Never mind who this is, just listen.
One of your men was captured.
I know who set him up.
All right, tell me about it.
His name is Daniel Bernstein.
I saw the whole thing.
-ls that the catch of the day? -The one that got away.
-Here you go, one live lizard.
-Hopefully not for too long.
-Robert! -Get him out of here! Take it easy, take it easy.
-I'm not afraid.
-You're as dumb as you look.
Take him to the lab.
Tell them I mean them no harm.
I love you.
Yeah, she's crazy about you too, buddy.
-Please, Steven, no more.
Look, I am sorry about all this.
Steven, I didn't do anything.
I was set up.
-That girl -What girl? Maggie Blodgett, from the hospital.
That nurse.
We checked.
There's no nurse by that name.
But you saw her.
I think there's a possibility that you saw the chance to advance -with Brian gone.
-Brian was my friend.
The ambitious have no friends.
-I'm not ambitious.
-I think you are.
-What are you gonna do with me? -Transfer you.
Give you the opportunity to reflect, rest to think.
I'll do whatever you want, Steven.
I just thought -What? -Well Nothing, I just didn't know what you'd do with me.
-What are you gonna do? -Send you where you'll serve us well.
-Where's that? -Where else? On a serving platter.
No! Steven, no! Robin.
I knew you would come.
-The child.
Is she your sister? -This is your daughter, Brian.
This is Elizabeth.
My daughter? Our daughter.
-I'm glad, Robin.
-Why? The three of us.
We'll be together.
Away from here, away from everyone.
-Where will we go? -Wherever you want.
Wherever you want.
Just so long as we're together.
I don't care where we go, Robin.
She knows I'm her father.
Let me out of here, Robin.
Let me hold her.
What's this? What have you done? Julie! Donovan! Robin's used the toxin! In the lab! Robin.
Robin, let's go.
Elizabeth? -Where's my baby? -She's with Father Andrews, she's fine.
He took her outside, it's okay.
Well we found out what it does to them.
I wonder what it does to us.
We should've brought that "brown shirt.
" Now we need another guinea pig.
-Can't pick anyone, that's murder.
-There's plenty of collaborators.
-Your mother? -That's a cheap Julie.
Julie! -Where's the key? -She's got it.
Julie! -You fool.
-We needed an answer.
Looks like we got some real red dynamite.
Cages are very unpleasant, aren't they? I have a caller for you, Diana.
-He claims to be an emissary of peace.
-Bring him in.
I'm Father Andrew Doyle.
I'm a Roman Catholic priest.
And this is Elizabeth.
She's our first interplanetary child.
-This is Robin Maxwell's child? -Yes.
Her growth is unprecedented.
Do you think it's dangerous? She seems quite healthy.
I'll have her examined.
-You risk a great deal by bringing her.
-Elizabeth's an extraordinary child.
She's a symbol of the universal unity of all God's children.
She can help bring peace between our two peoples.
Or you're afraid your people will kill her.
Yes, there was that factor.
Look at her.
She's proof we're made of the same genetic stuff.
Surely this child demonstrates that harvesting human beings for food is nothing short of cannibalism.
An argument for another time.
Meanwhile, accept my hospitality.
You'll be all right, Elizabeth.
God bless you.
Leave her with me, and treat the priest well.
I shall.
And what are we to do with you? I'm getting awful tired of moving, but this place sure beats that jail.
I never figured the padre would go AWOL.
I thought he was a standup guy.
If you start believing in peace on earth there's no telling how screwed up you'll get.
-Why don't you help me in the lab? -I don't feel like it.
You can't sit in this room all day.
-Could you please just leave me alone? -I know how you feel You always say that! You have no idea how I feel! Then why don't we talk about it? -How could Father Andrews steal her? -After what happened to Brian he was afraid for Elizabeth.
I would never hurt her.
But he wasn't sure of that.
I wasn't so sure of that.
I didn't realize how much I loved her until she was gone.
We'll do everything to get her back, I promise.
Even if we get her back, how can I face her? I killed her father.
How do I explain that? You don't.
That's the war, that's part of the war.
It had nothing to do with the war.
I hated him so much because he used me.
I killed him.
-Doesn't that make me a murderer? -I don't know.
-We were gonna use the toxin on him.
-That's no answer.
I don't have any answers, Robin.
Not now, not anymore.
There are some things in life that we do, that later we deeply regret.
I wanted to kill Elizabeth, once.
I just keep seeing his face.
I can't forget his face.
-I love you, Daddy.
-I love you too.
I know I haven't told you in so long.
-How's it going? -Good.
I'll have it in a week.
I'll catch you later.
-Hey, kiddo.
How you doing? -Hi.
What's Julie doing? Developing a pill so our Visitor friends will be immune to the toxin.
-The Fifth Column? -That's right.
Aren't the Fifth Column traitors to their own people? That's one way of seeing it, but their people are wrong.
Wanna learn to pitch like Fernando Valenzuela? No, I'll stay here.
-Handling this stuff gives me shakes.
-Don't worry.
They said it's not harmful to humans.
-What about DDT, Agent Orange? -I got the message.
-Hey, guys.
How's it going? -Excellent.
The first shipment is going to the other fighters today.
What? We agreed not to ship the toxin until the pills were ready.
-Ham ordered us to do it today.
-He did, huh? Tyler.
I thought we'd agreed not to ship this toxin until we developed a vaccine.
-You want some left alive.
I don't.
-We're this far because of their help.
I'm not gonna pay them back by killing them.
If you let them live, Gooder, they're gonna breed.
I prefer them to you.
I may bring the neighborhood down, they'll eat it.
-Let's unpack this stuff.
-lt's going.
Move it out.
This shipment's not going anyplace.
-Should we stop it? -No, they're grown, let them go.
Hey! Nice.
Come on, guys, knock it off! I didn't know you felt so strongly about all this.
The truck stays.
-lt's not in our destiny.
You sent for me? I think the Fifth Column plans to kill Father Andrews.
Double his guard.
-I'll relay your request to Pamela.
-This is not a request.
This is a command.
I thought you knew.
Pamela issued orders that military commands from you had to be cleared.
I see.
You may leave, captain.
Very nice, dear.
But remember what you work so hard to build, others take pleasure in tearing down.
You must never give them the chance.
-This is dangerous.
-I had to see you.
You've started something disastrous.
-What? -This weapon -How do you? -Listen.
If they lose, the mothership can turn into a nuclear device capable of destroying Earth.
-They'll annihilate everything.
-You sure it's not an empty threat? I've seen it.
I've seen them use it.
-I'll tell the others.
-You tell them to stop.
We'll be in contact.
Martin we owe you much.
I speak for us all.
The man just presented his argument! There is no argument! We win, or we lose.
There is no in-between.
We're not talking about just the people here.
Be real clear.
If we lose, the whole damn world loses.
We're not fighting the same war anymore.
The rules have changed.
It's escalated out of control.
Yeah, see, war has a tendency to do that, ma'am.
I'm saying we're not fighting a guerrilla war anymore.
We face nuclear destruction.
We've had that threat for over 40 years.
That was the threat.
This is the reality.
-They'll nuke us.
-This is crazy.
Not long ago, I was a gardener.
She was a student.
He worked in a factory.
Now we're planning the fate of the world.
We're the only ones who can win.
We better do it.
-I can't risk 3 billion lives.
-How dare we even have this debate after they killed Mark and Ruby and they killed your wife, and your son.
They've made life hell for us.
We've all suffered.
No one needs to be reminded.
We all want quick and easy vengeance.
This isn't revenge.
This is a one-way ticket to oblivion.
They came to suck us dry.
When they're done with this planet, they'll toss it like a can.
No one's calling them good guys or appealing to them.
You can't win a war if you're extinct.
We've got to think of another way.
There is no other way.
There's no time.
If Martin knows about the red dust, then you can believe Diana does too.
And if she doesn't, she will in a few days.
As raggedy and ordinary as this bunch is -we're the last shot.
-Last is exactly right.
Now, if we attack If we attack, at least we have a fighting chance.
We do nothing, and we've signed this planet's death warrant.
Hate to say it, but for once I have to agree with Tyler.
I say we attack.
-I thought this was a secret ballot.
-I'm sorry.
I've never felt more strongly about anything in my entire life.
Yeah, let's vote.
So by a narrow margin the ones who voted for the attack have won.
Personally, I think we just voted for Armageddon but I will abide by the decision.
Donovan? All right.
Tyler's gonna distribute the toxin.
He'll lead the ground assault.
I'll lead the raid on Diana's ship.
Okay, Tyler.
The plan's simple.
We hit all the air bases across the country.
Then use the jets to spread the toxin.
Chris has detailed air base plans.
You'll be put in groups, so wait until we get to you.
That's it.
-Hi, Julie.
Were you just listening? No, I was looking for my dad.
Is he there? -I'll tell him you're looking for him.
-How's guard duty? -Boring.
-Mike, I'm worried about Sean.
-He seems fine to me.
He called the Fifth Column traitors and doesn't like baseball.
-What are you getting at? -He was on Diana's ship a long time.
-I know.
-You know what they do.
-What they did to me.
-You think they converted my son? I'm sorry.
It kills me to be the one to have to tell you this -but maybe it's true.
They only had him asleep.
He's fine.
I caught him spying outside the conference room.
That's enough.
If anybody's been converted, it's you.
-That's not fair.
-Let me tell you something.
Don't ever make me choose between my son and you.
You'll lose, every time.
Leave us.
Well, what do you think? I found your Bible very intriguing, Andrew.
I'm so pleased to hear you say that, Diana.
Perhaps you'd allow me to bring the word of God to your planet? You'd abandon your world to bring this to ours? It'd be a unique privilege.
You'd have as profound an effect on my people -as you've had on yours.
-I'm only a spokesman.
He writes the words.
You're too humble.
I have found new strength of purpose because of our time together.
-I thank you.
-This praise is unexpected coming from one so self-assured.
Self-assured? You've shown me my vulnerabilities.
I never allowed myself to experience them.
I never knew they existed.
And I won't allow them to exist anymore.
Vulnerabilities, my dear priest, are exploitable weaknesses.
I'd rather fight you than tell you what I have to tell you.
And I don't wanna fight you.
Your son's been converted.
Never had a chance, you know that.
I know it's rotten, but maybe not for what we have to do.
If we change our plan, we can use him.
Go easy on the dust, dudes.
It ain't gonna do you no good to snort it here.
Pop, give me a break, please? I'm just joking with the guys.
-You assume I'm coming down on you.
-lsn't that how it's always been? Perhaps so.
I disagreed with what you said at the meeting.
-So, what's new? -You said it well.
I was damn proud of you, son.
-Really? -Yes.
-Hey, Sean, come here a second.
-Not now, I gotta run.
I just wanna tell you something.
-I love you, Sean.
-I know, Dad.
However things might change in the future, or get really crazy -I'll still love you more than anyone.
-Sure, Dad.
I really gotta go.
It was clever of you to get away.
What have you learned of the weapon? -lt's some germ.
I don't know.
-What are they planning to do with it? We're gonna use jets to spray it in the air.
-Where will they get the jets? -They'll steal them from air bases.
A common thief.
That's just like your father.
They really think a few jets can spray enough germs to do any harm? They've got friends in other cities.
They're gonna attack air bases around the country, at the same time.
-When are they planning to do this? -Can I have some cake? -lt's impolite to change the subject.
-But I'm still hungry.
Of course you can have cake, darling, as soon as you answer the question.
-The raid's tomorrow, at dawn.
-Are you sure? I'm positive.
Here's your cake, darling.
Isn't he a good boy? -He's gonna like it here.
-I'm sure.
I'll see you later, Eleanor.
Goodbye, Sean.
It's good to see you again, Julie.
-Hello, Donovan.
-You just stop by for directions? -We brought weapons and uniforms.
-We're with you now.
-With your plan, we had no choice.
-I'll think of something.
At least there won't be rats in the dorm anymore.
I apologize for their rudeness.
I hope that we can all be friends.
With some of you, we'll never be friends.
Let me introduce you to our team.
This is Robert.
-Yes? -I'd like to speak to you.
-I'm busy right now.
-It's about the rebel raids.
How did you find out about them? That's classified.
I'm entitled to know about them.
The intelligence is from my source.
You're entitled to scientific information only.
You're not taking it seriously.
I won't base troop movements on the tattlings of a 10-year-old boy.
I converted him.
-The information's reliable.
-I doubt your conversions.
-I'll have someone look into it.
-When? The raid is tomorrow.
-You scientific types ruffle easily.
-You military types are so predictable.
You rely on cunning, intrigue.
I prefer the direct approach.
Don't worry, dear Pamela.
I'll do my scientific best to command your fleet.
And tomorrow, I'll destroy the rebels.
Consider this an early retirement.
-We're ready when you are.
-Okay, come on.
This pill, it is safe? The good news is that it's safe.
The bad news is, we don't know for how long.
We'll survive.
-I've tasted worse.
-When? Thinking about tomorrow? I'm thinking about Sean.
You don't know how rotten I felt to be the one to tell you.
I don't blame you.
I'm sorry for what I said.
And you shouldn't blame Sean, either.
He's not a traitor or a spy.
He's just a little boy -who couldn't fight back like I did.
-I don't blame him.
I blame them.
You think they'll believe his story? I hope so.
Baker flight commander departing to Edwards Air Force Base on schedule.
-Security forces in G-sector are ready.
Denver squadron reports deployment at China Lake.
K-sector commander reporting to mothership.
-Why is Pamela deploying troops? -She's dead.
She chose a Fifth Columnist as her guard.
I'm in charge now.
How dare you deploy troops without my authority.
Pamela started this before she died.
I'm simply carrying out her orders.
The rebels are mounting a series of raids.
We have the opportunity to wipe out the entire network.
What could they accomplish by raiding air bases? -Their jets are useless against us.
-They plan to disperse a toxic weapon.
Aren't we innoculated against all Earthly bacteria? They think they've made a new one.
-ls that possible? -Perhaps.
Don't worry.
We'll ensure that the toxin never sees daylight.
-You've amassed quite an army.
-I want this victory to be decisive.
-That shouldn't be too difficult.
-And if we fail there's always this.
I hope we never have to use this.
This is your high and low power.
This controls three scope sizes.
-ls there a safety? -Yeah, down here.
Don't blow your foot off.
-You gonna be okay? -I'll be fine, thanks.
I have to check the other squad.
Anything you need? No, we got it.
-Good luck.
-You too.
Good luck! Where are they? Where are they? I expected an attack at dawn.
I wonder what they're up to? Those Earthlings are stupid.
That makes them unpredictable.
Come on! Let's move it.
Go ahead.
Release time is 1100.
If you make 10,000 feet before then, hold on.
We gotta let the others reach Master Control, okay? Come on! Go! Tanker 00028, establish radio contact.
This is tanker 00028, requesting permission to refuel.
You're not listed, 00028.
We were activated by auxiliary to help the offensive on Earth.
We have Code 7 orders to refuel and return immediately.
Hold on.
Tanker 00028, permission to land and refuel granted.
Tanker captain 00028, bring your flight log to the controller's booth.
Tanker captain 00028 to the controller's box.
Tanker 00028, checking in.
-We lost contact with the landing bay.
-Go to backup.
Go! Halt! Don't let them escape! Cover me! That's the download hose, there's the vent.
-Let's get these bodies out of here! -You two, give me a hand here.
-Put it right on the front porch.
-No problem.
Okay, three degrees left.
Nice shot.
What are you doing? Are we leaving? -Help me.
-What can I do? -Tell them I surrender! Say anything! -I will.
Don't shoot, don't shoot! I'm one of you.
-Hold your fire! -Their leader is here.
He's been holding me prisoner! Let's go! Say good night, hotshot.
-You're late.
-Nice to see you too.
-This will protect you from the toxin.
-What's that? Our most advanced decoder.
In case they arm the doomsday device.
This way.
This is the main air vent.
We can reach the rest of the ship.
It's gonna take a while.
It's a big ship.
Ready? Yeah, go ahead, shoot it! What's going on? Where are the other guards? -Testing the ventilation sensors.
-I wasn't informed of any tests.
Let me see your passes.
Here, I've got one.
What's that? Sensors detect a foreign substance.
-What foreign substance? -The rebels are onboard.
-They're putting toxin in the air.
-Our troops are on Earth.
I'll shut off the contaminants in outer sectors and put Master Control in auxiliary.
It's impenetrable.
-Then we'll round them up -and be done with them.
Defense alert on the mothership.
All troops proceed to battle stations.
Code 9 orders to secure the landing bay and corridors.
Repeat, we have a Code 9 defense alert.
-They know.
-We're gonna have to hurry.
Halt! Identify yourselves! Hurry! We gotta take off as soon as possible.
-What's the matter? -Jammed.
We gotta switch tanks.
We're behind schedule.
The troops will be here soon.
-Okay, get ready.
-Ready! Willie! -Any other way out? -No.
Why aren't they dying? -They've found your people.
-Without the dust, we're done.
This plan was ill-considered from the start! Don't die, Harmony.
You've gotta go.
It's not safe.
Please, Harmony.
I love you.
No, I won't leave you here.
Commander, return immediately with as many troops as you can muster.
We're on our way.
They're cornered in the corridor and landing bay.
They don't stand a chance.
-Haul down that flag! -I can't, it's stuck.
Give me that.
Get back! -We did it! -Yeah, but did they do it? This could be a very short celebration.
Get them! Finish them off! -lt's almost 1100, let's go! -We'll never make it in time.
Master Control is sealed.
We have to go through here.
-There are thousands of balloons.
-I saw.
What are they doing? -Nothing.
Just rising.
Why would someone release balloons and just let? Diana, are you still there? -And the other motherships? -They've all seen balloons.
IKeep me informed.
Do they think balloons will divert us from the airfields? Don't you understand? The bases were the diversion.
They're not using jets.
The toxin's in the balloons.
Millions of balloons couldn't deliver enough toxin to do harm.
They only need a small amount in the planet's food and water chain.
It's a bacteria.
It will multiply.
Very quickly everything on Earth will be poison to us.
You just shot one down.
The chain reaction will kill us all.
They knew we would.
They're more clever than I thought.
-A fatal miscalculation for us.
-You're safe.
I don't relish the idea of spending my life in here with you.
Damn them.

We'll leave, but I'll destroy their precious Earth first.

Blow it.

-What's holding this? -A special alloy.
-We need another charge.
Give me your key.
Get back.

Five minutes to critical mass.
Pamela underestimated your ambition.
You stupid, feeble man.
If not for me, you'd still be deciding where to land.
You and your petty, idiotic intrigue wondering who was in charge.

I had the power, and you wore the crown.
The crown.
It's yours now, Diana.
Enjoy your reign.
Queen of a poisoned realm.
Four minutes until critical mass.
Come, Elizabeth.
It's time to go.

If you move, he'll find you.
Don't move, Julie.
If you stand still, you're safe.
