Young Justice s03e11 Episode Script

Another Freak

VICTOR: Dad! Come on, Vic.
You know you're not allowed back here.
Hey, if my dad refuses to come home, I've got no choice but to go to him.
It's all right, Casey.
You don't have to make a scene, Victor.
Scene? I haven't "seen" you in days, Dad! You missed me crushing it at my game, and the celebration after, and the four college scouts who stopped by to I don't know, woo me? I am sorry about that, truly.
But you won't need football scouts to get into college if you get your grades up.
I got a 4.
0 GPA which maybe you'd know, if I was half as important to you as the dumb machines in this lab! You know my work is important.
- I know it's important to you.
- Stop it.
There are things happening in this world that are bigger than you and I.
And in any case, I will not talk to you while you are behaving in this way.
Behaving what way? I'm not some three-year-old trying to get you to taste this mud pie.
This is my life you're ignoring.
My actual life Which we can discuss when you've calmed yourself down, boy.
Boy? Now, you're "boying" me? At least look me in the eye if you're gonna (SIGHS) You know what? Never mind.
Forget it.
Victor, wait.
(MACHINE BUZZING AND WHIRRING) Dad (THEME MUSIC PLAYING) (BIRDS CHIRPING) (CELL PHONE CHIMING) FORAGER: Why is Brion Markov always looking at his telephonic device? Brion Markov never calls anyone.
Forager should mind Forager's own business.
Brion Markov got up wrong on the side bed this morning.
But Brion Markov's attitude will soon change.
Oh, and why is that? AUTOMATED VOICE: Recognized.
Tigress, B-0-7.
Halo, G-0-3.
Why indeed.
(SNICKERS) (VIOLET GIGGLES) Mmm, it's the first day of school.
(FORAGER CHUCKLES) Uh-uh, no flying at school, please.
Forager, Zatanna created this just for you.
Your very own glamour charm.
So, uh Is Forager glamorous now? You look human and considerably less naked.
Is Violet sure? Forager still looks like Forager to Forager.
And Forager still feels naked.
Violet is sure.
And it's Violet Harper now.
I have a new last name.
- Forager is still Forager.
- Not today.
You'll need a human name for school.
I helped Artemis fill out the forms and picked a name I thought you would like.
Fred Bugg with two G's.
Forager is Fred Bugg with two G's.
Forager understands.
No, wait.
Fred Bugg with two G's understands.
I'm sure you'll fit right in.
Isn't this wonderful, Brion? Fred and I will meet so many new girls and boys.
Just be careful about the boys.
They only have one thing on their minds.
What one thing? (DOOR OPENS) Uh, we can talk about that on the way to school.
And if we don't hurry, we're going to be late.
Oh, this is perfect.
When we drive up with the guidance counselor and the principal, all the other kids will have to like us.
ARTEMIS: Argh! No flying at school! (ALARM BEEPING) (MEN COUGHING) Over here.
Dale, give me a hand.
Stone (MEN GRUNTING) SILAS: (GROANS) I'm I'm fine.
I'm fine.
Where is Victor? WOMAN: We need help over here.
- I I found him.
- No! DALE: Come on, let's move that off him.
SILAS: Careful now.
(ALL GRUNTING) (METAL CREAKING) (ALL GASP) (GASPING) (HEART BEATING) We have to get him to a hospital.
Silas, he'll never make it to a hospital.
- (VICTOR GRUNTS) - He needs to say goodbye, sir.
(GASPING) No! Hold on, son, I've got you.
I've got you.
Silas, please.
- Got it! - WOMAN: What is that? It's called a Fatherbox.
The Justice League told me aliens used it to heal their own.
Stone, you can't use that thing on Victor.
I am the lead scientist here.
And the world's preeminent expert on alien technology.
When I say it will work, it will work! It has to.
Settle, settle.
Let's give a Happy Harbor welcome to our new students.
This is Violet Harper and Fred, uh - Fred Bugg? - Fred Bugg with two G's.
Some time has passed since Fred Bugg with two G's was amongst a swarm of this size.
Fred Bugg with two G's will do whatever is necessary to ensure the safety and efficiency of the Happy Harbor High School Hive.
And I'm Violet.
I, uh Just so happy to be here that I think it's making me sick.
(GROANS) LENORE: Okay, great to have you here.
Why don't you both take a seat? - Freaks.
- (DOOR OPENS, CLOSES) Miss Row, how thoughtful of you to join us.
Sarcasm, Ms.
Parris? Isn't that beneath you? (STUDENTS LAUGH) Just take your seat.
All right, announcements Fred, I feel weird.
School also feels weird to Fred Bugg with two G's.
Uh, hey.
Who's Fred Bugg? Fred Bugg with two G's is Fred Bugg with two G's.
He's Fred Bugg and I'm Violet.
- Harper.
- Correct! - What? - I'm a Harper.
- I thought you were Violet.
- Yes.
- So which is it? - Do I only get one? One hardly seems sufficient.
Why then would Fred Bugg with two G's be called - Wait, wait.
Hold on.
- (FRED AND VIOLET MUMBLING) No, no, don't apologize.
It's just Okay, stop.
So, you're Fred Bugg with two G's.
Got it.
And she's - Violet Harper.
- Violet Harper! There we go.
My name's Harper Row.
Fred Bugg with two G's and Violet Harper are very happy to meet Harper Row.
(WHISPERS) You could be our first friend.
Oh, I'm going to like you two.
Okay, power's restored, but this thing's draining a lot of juice.
It'll be worth it.
Okay, I think I managed to attach EKG and EEG monitors.
- Are you getting anything? - Yes - (FLATLINING TONE) - and no.
Silas, I'm sorry.
This is insane.
There's no heart or brain function.
Vic's gone.
We've got to stop this thing before it finishes doing whatever it's doing.
Just wait.
(BUZZING) (WHIRRING) (BUZZING) (GRUNTS) (VICTOR GROANS) (GRUNTS) Ah! (BUZZING) (HEART THUMPING) (MONITOR BEEPS) There there, you see! BRION: Where are you going? CONNER: Just finished restoring this bike, so I'm taking her for a test run.
One of the perks of the job.
(ENGINE STARTS) (SCOFFS) If you say so.
CONNER: Yeah, well, try not to sprain your thumbs while I'm gone.
Markov, Brion.
Open Sesame.
Access denied.
Access denied.
Authorization failed.
Not recognized.
- Lock out.
- (GRUNTS) AUTOMATED VOICE: Nightwing, B-0-1.
DICK: Looking for something? Actually, yes, because you won't tell me anything.
There was nothing to tell until now.
That's why I'm here.
Your sister, Tara, was on Santa Prisca, but has since been shipped elsewhere.
We're trying to track her now.
So, she was there.
And your delays cost us the chance to rescue her.
It's more complicated than that, Brion.
- I need you to be patient.
- (BRION GRUNTS) Do not turn your back on me.
(BOTH GRUNTING) (YELLING) (BRION PANTING) (GROWLS) So, what's your next move? Roast me alive for suggesting you exercise patience? Patience? Patience, patience.
What is the magic of patience? You preach patience.
My brother preaches patience.
Once upon a time, my parents sang the same song of patience.
Where did all that patience get any of us? Huh.
Yeah, now I get it.
See, I think you know we're doing everything we can to find Tara.
So, is this really about her or is it about Markovia? What? You've been online every day, every hour, obsessively following your brother's every move.
(STUTTERS) You hacked my phone? Stay focused, Brion, because right now, you have a decision to make.
Are you a man perpetually looking back at what he's lost? Or a man looking forward to what he might become? (THUNDER RUMBLING) (STEAM HISSING) - WOMAN: Something's happening.
- Get me a light! Here, doc.
(METAL CRANKING) SILAS: Victor? Vic? Can you hear me? Are you all right? (VICTOR GROANS) (THUNDER RUMBLING) FRED: Why does Violet Harper want to sit outside? There was nowhere for us to sit inside.
Oh, and I need air.
Ugh, I feel strange.
Yes Strange that no students wish to sit with Violet Harper and Fred Bugg with two G's.
How will Happy Harbor teenagers learn about Violet Harper and Fred Bugg with two G's if Violet Harper and Fred Bugg with two G's do not interact with Happy Harbor teenagers? Are Violet Harper and Fred Bugg with two G's freaks? Because Fred Bugg with two G's doesn't feel like a freak.
(SIGHS) But Fred Bugg with two G's must look like a freak.
HARPER: Of course, you're freaks.
But that's a good thing.
All those jerks in the cafeteria are cliquey, high school cliches.
Not worth the effort.
- You guys on the other hand - Yes? (LAUGHS) you're cool.
Freaky, but cool.
Have a seat.
- (GROANS) - (WHISPERS) Two hands only.
(WHINES) (GULPS) Ugh, I still feel weird.
Yeah, the goulash'll do that to you.
(GROANS) (VICTOR GROANS) Victor There was an explosion.
(STAMMERS) An explosion? I want you to stay calm.
I believe you're out of danger now, but But you were dying, son.
And I had to save you.
I had to do whatever I could to save you.
What? (WHIMPERS) What have you done to me? You ruined me.
Murdered my future.
Now, I'll murder yours.
Victor, wait.
(GRUNTS) Vic, you gotta calm down.
- Do I? - (GRUNTS) 'Cause I think I'll crush you.
- (GROANS) - SILAS: Victor.
What about you guys? Violet Harper and Fred Bugg with two G's have English.
Although, Violet Harper and Fred Bugg with two G's both speak the language flawlessly.
You know, you don't have to say "with two G's" every time.
I mean, you can if you want, but it's optional.
Fred Bugg with two G's can just be Fred Bugg? - Yeah, I'm pretty sure.
- (SIGHS) Just being Fred Bugg is a great relief to Fred Bugg.
- Cool, see you later.
- FRED: Cool.
Fred Bugg with optional two G's will see Harper Row later.
- (THUNDER RUMBLING) - Lovin' those two.
Violet Harper? (EXCLAIMS) Is Violet Harper, all right? I still feel very weird.
Whoa, Violet Harper is indigo.
That's a new one.
Violet Harper opened a boom tube.
Violet Harper is so full of surprises.
How did Violet Harper accomplish the boom tube? Violet Harper is Wait, where does Violet Harper go? Fred Bugg better get Megan Morse.
Where am I? (BEEPING) (DISTORTED VOICE) What are you? What kind of abomination are you? - (SILAS GRUNTS) - (GASPS) (SCREAMS) I'm not an abomination, I'm a freak.
But that's a good thing.
My new friend Harper said so.
Then your friend was wrong! - (GASPS) - (YELLS) (GRUNTING) SILAS: Stop.
Don't hurt him! - I never want to hurt anybody.
- (GRUNTING) But maybe you should tell that to him.
(GASPS) (GROANING) (GROANS) (PANTING) There's that weird feeling again.
It's very strange.
But I think I think I know what I'm supposed to do.
(VICTOR GROANING) (SPEAKING OTHER LANGUAGE) (SCREAMING) What did you do to him? Wait for it.
(BEEPING, BUZZING) I think I cleansed you.
Cleansed? Yeah, I guess something something like that.
I feel I feel I don't know.
Less murderous, maybe.
That's promising.
Well, I think my work here is done.
Wait! Can you get this stuff off me? I'd very much like to fix you, but I don't know how.
Honestly, I'm not even sure how I did what I did.
But you healed me! I felt it.
My Violet aura doesn't work that way.
And if it was going to heal you, it would have.
- Just try.
- SILAS: Victor, no! Those prosthetics are the only thing keeping you alive.
They're alien in origin.
Made from something called a Fatherbox.
I don't know exactly how it works, but together, we can learn.
Yeah, you'd love that.
I'd be your latest lab experiment.
It's not like that.
This was the only way I could save you.
Save me? You turned me into a freak! You are not a freak, Victor.
Not a freak? You think I could go back to school like this? You think they'll let me catch a football with this thing? Do you have any idea what you've done to me? I'm a freak, but that's a good thing.
Wait, can I go with you? I suppose so.
(GROANS) Victor, please! You don't know anything about this girl.
You're safer here with me! But you are not.
I need to leave before I do something that we both That's the Fatherbox talking, not you, son.
The League The League tried to warn me.
You just don't get it.
The murder thing, that was your Fatherbox, but the anger, that's all mine.
I don't want to be anywhere near you right now.
- Let's go.
- Victor, wait! (SIGHS) (THUNDER RUMBLING) - MEGAN: Here? - FRED: Right here.
(BOTH GASP) (EXCLAIMS) Violet Harper is all right? Yes, I feel much better, Fred.
Violet, what's going on? And who's this? Just another freak.
(SEAGULLS SQUAWKING) (CELL PHONE CHIMES) You and I, okay? And are you okay? (CHUCKLES) I wasn't, but (SIGHS) moving forward, I think I will be.
