- 1. I used to think
this was the beginning of your story.
- 2. Memory is a strange thing.
- 3. It doesn't work like I thought it did.
- 4. We are so bound by time,
- 5. by its order.
- 6. Okay.
- 7. Okay, come back to me.
- 8. Come back to me.
- 9. Come back to me.
- 10. Stick 'em up!
- 11. Are you the sheriff in this here town?
- 12. These are my tickle guns,
and I'm gonna get ya.
- 13. No.
- 14. You want me to chase you?
You better run.
- 15. I remember moments in the middle.
- 16. I love you.
- 17. I hate you!
- 18. And this was the end.
- 19. Come back to me.
- 20. Come back to me.
- 21. But now I'm not so sure
I believe in beginnings and endings.
- 22. There are days
that define your story beyond your life.
- 23. Like the day they arrived.
- 24. Good morning.
- 25. - Morning.
- 26. Where is everyone?
- 27. Okay. Well, let's get started.
- 28. Today, we are talking about Portuguese
- 29. and why it sounds so different
from the other Romance languages.
- 30. The story of Portuguese
begins in the kingdom of Galicia...
- 31. - Sorry.
- ... in the Middle Ages,
- 32. where language was seen
as an expression of art.
- 33. Any news you wanna share?
- 34. Dr. Banks, can you
turn the TV to a news channel?
- 35. arrived here on scene,
- 36. but police have already set up
a blockade here around the area.
- 37. As you can see, we've gotten
just about as close as we can,
- 38. but unfortunately, Montana, right now,
is on complete lockdown.
- 39. The object apparently touched down
40 minutes ago just north of I-94.
- 40. We're waiting to hear if this is perhaps
an experimental vessel or...
- 41. Hold on.
- 42. I'm learning that
more objects like this have landed
- 43. at as many as eight other locations
around the world.
- 44. Yes. Can we?
- 45. This is from a site in Hokkaido.
- 46. This is worldwide.
It is happening right now.
- 47. Okay.
- 48. That's... Class is dismissed.
- 49. For now,
we're simply asking for cooperation
- 50. while authorities assess the object.
- 51. So, you're saying it's not ours?
- 52. Do you even know if it's from Earth?
- 53. We're still collecting information.
We're coordinating with other countries.
- 54. We are not the only ones
to have one of these in our backyard.
- 55. If this is some sort of
peaceful first contact,
- 56. why send 12?
- 57. Why not just one?
- 58. Yeah, I know. I saw that, too.
- 59. I don't know, Mom. I'm watching
the same news coverage you are.
- 60. Well, Mom, please don't bother
with that channel.
- 61. How many times do I have to
tell you those people are idiots?
- 62. Yeah, well, do I sound nervous?
- 63. Okay, exactly. So...
- 64. Me? Yeah.
You know me, I'm about the same.
- 65. Mom, I'm fine.
- 66. Okay, I'll call you later. Bye.
- 67. And at around eight hours after landing,
- 68. there are still no signs
of what might be called "first contact."
- 69. Now, the objects measure
at least 1,500 feet tall.
- 70. Two are reported to have
penetrated Russian airspace,
- 71. one in Siberia and the other
off the coast of the Black...
- 72. suspended above the ocean.
- 73. So far, there are 12 unidentified objects
spread across the globe.
- 74. There is no obvious logic
to their locations
- 75. and no evidence
that the ships are even...
- 76. who entertain the idea
that if it is a kind of vessel,
- 77. it may be unmanned.
- 78. Regardless, we have a protocol
for scenarios like this, but...
- 79. After Tuesday's extraordinary events,
- 80. the President, this morning,
has declared a state of emergency,
- 81. with as many as 5,000 National Guard
- 82. to the state of Montana alone.
- 83. Borders are closed
and flights have been grounded,
- 84. stranding millions of travelers.
- 85. Panic buying of gas, water, and food
continues to escalate
- 86. and federal authorities
have temporarily lifted all caps
- 87. on overtime for law enforcement.
- 88. The ATF has put a temporary ban
on new gun licenses,
- 89. forcing many independent suppliers
of hunting equipment and firearms
- 90. to close their doors to the public.
- 91. Forty-eight hours later
and no further development...
- 92. Two days.
- 93. from the sight of the 12 UFO...
- 94. And already the public expects us
to know the answers.
- 95. I'm Colonel G.T. Weber.
- 96. We never formally met,
- 97. but two years ago, you did some
Farsi translations for Army intelligence.
- 98. You made quick work
of those insurgent videos.
- 99. You made quick work
of those insurgents.
- 100. You are on the top of everyone's list
when it comes to translations.
- 101. And you have another two years
in the SSBI.
- 102. So, you still have top-secret clearance.
- 103. That's why I'm in your office
and not at Berkeley.
- 104. Okay.
- 105. I have something
I need you to translate for me.
- 106. Why are you here?
- 107. Can you... Can you understand us?
- 108. Where did you come from?
- 109. Now you heard it.
- 110. What do you make of it?
- 111. Is that...
- 112. Yes.
- 113. How many?
- 114. How many what?
- 115. How many speaking?
- 116. Two.
- 117. Assume they were not speaking
at the same time.
- 118. Are you sure? Did they have mouths...
- 119. How would you approach
- 120. Do you hear any words?
- 121. Phrases?
- 122. I don't... I don't know.
- 123. So, what can you tell me?
- 124. I can tell you that it's impossible
to translate from an audio file.
- 125. I would need to be there
to interact with them.
- 126. You didn't need that
with the Farsi translations.
- 127. I didn't need it
because I already knew the language.
- 128. But this, this is...
- 129. I know what you're doing.
- 130. - Tell me what I'm doing.
- I'm not taking you to Montana.
- 131. It's all I can do to keep it
from turning into a tourist site
- 132. for everybody who has a TS clearance.
- 133. I'm just telling you what it would take
to do this job.
- 134. This is not a negotiation.
- 135. If I leave here, your chance is gone.
- 136. Good day.
- 137. Colonel?
- 138. You mentioned Berkeley,
are you going to ask Danvers next?
- 139. Maybe.
- 140. Before you commit to him,
- 141. ask him the Sanskrit word for "war"
and its translation.
- 142. An agreement on sharing scientific
discoveries looks closer tonight,
- 143. as Russia and China join talks
at the United Nations.
- 144. Meanwhile, financial markets
across the world are in crisis
- 145. as the Dow Jones Industrial Average
fell over 2,000 points
- 146. in its worst weekly decline in history.
- 147. Mornin'.
- 148. Colonel.
- 149. Gavisti. He says
it means "an argument."
- 150. What do you say it means?
- 151. "A desire for more cows."
- 152. Pack your bags.
- 153. All right, give me 20 minutes?
- 154. We take off in 10.
- 155. Dr. Banks. Right this way, please.
- 156. Contact and ready to approach...
- 157. Excuse me, Dr. Banks, let me
make sure you're properly secured.
- 158. You Okay?
- 159. Thanks.
- 160. Sorry, I couldn't hear
what you were saying.
- 161. "Language is the foundation
- 162. "It is the glue
that holds a people together.
- 163. "It is the first weapon
drawn in a conflict."
- 164. Louise, this is Ian Donnelly.
- 165. Louise Banks, Ian Donnelly.
- 166. It's quite a greeting.
- 167. Yeah. Well, you wrote it.
- 168. Yeah, but...
- 169. It's the kind of thing you write
as a preface,
- 170. dazzle them with the basics.
- 171. Yeah. It's great.
- 172. Even if it's wrong.
- 173. It's wrong?
- 174. Well, the cornerstone of civilization
isn't language, it's science.
- 175. Ian is a theoretical physicist
from Los Alamos.
- 176. You'll be reporting to me,
- 177. but you'll be working with him
when you're in the shell.
- 178. That's what they're calling the UFO.
- 179. Priority one. What do they want,
where are they from.
- 180. And beyond that, how did they get here?
- 181. Are they capable of
- 182. Are they...
- 183. I have a list of questions that,
you know, we can go over.
- 184. Starting with a series of just
a "handshake" of binary sequences...
- 185. How about we just talk to them
- 186. before we start
throwing math problems at them?
- 187. This is why you're both here.
- 188. I'll bring the coffee.
- 189. Coffee with some aliens.
- 190. All right. I want you
to take these two to Dr. Kettler.
- 191. Yes, sir.
- 192. Follow the captain to Medical.
- 193. The procedure should take
just a few minutes,
- 194. and then, we'll get started.
- 195. These men are gonna
take care of your bags.
- 196. I'll take your cell phones.
- 197. Cell phones.
- 198. Follow me.
- 199. Put these on.
You're gonna wear them at all times.
- 200. - Not until they're here.
- 201. Sir, they're here.
- 202. Louise Banks? Ian Donnelly?
- 203. When was the last time
either of you have eaten?
- 204. - Last night.
- 205. When's the last time
you did something stressful?
- 206. Does now count?
- 207. Just saying.
- 208. Who was being carted off
in the medevac?
- 209. Not everyone is able
to process experiences like this.
- 210. I'm gonna get some blood from you
- 211. and give you an immunization dose
that covers a battery of bacterial threats.
- 212. Would you sign these, please?
- 213. And roll up your sleeves.
- 214. Either of you claustrophobic?
- 215. - Nope.
- 216. Currently taking any medications?
- 217. No.
- 218. The booster is a kick to your system,
- 219. so you may experience
- 220. nausea, dizziness, headaches,
- 221. a ringing in your ears
like you have tinnitus.
- 222. You see what's happening to him?
- 223. How does this even work?
- 224. The readings do not change, but...
- 225. I don't know. It's like
we're insects on a piece of paper
- 226. and they're easing us out of the house.
- 227. At exactly 112 minutes and 19 seconds,
- 228. the gravity starts to shift
and slides us out of the room.
- 229. Have you found
a scientific explanation for it?
- 230. Like, is it for them?
- 231. No, we think it's for us.
- 232. The air doesn't seem to circulate
inside the chamber,
- 233. so after about two hours,
you run out of oxygen.
- 234. It doesn't take 18 hours
to pump fresh air into a room.
- 235. Atmosphere.
- 236. Excuse me?
- 237. If their atmosphere
is different from Earth,
- 238. it would certainly take hours
- 239. to rebalance the O2 content
and pressure for us
- 240. every time they open their door.
- 241. So, you're saying they could
suffocate us if they wanted?
- 242. This is Agent David Halpern
with the CIA.
- 243. Let me get you two to your stations.
- 244. Yes, sir.
- 245. Remember, we need answers
as soon as possible.
- 246. What do they want,
where are they from, why they're here.
- 247. - This is the priority.
- 248. Everyone, this is Dr. Ian Donnelly.
He'll be running this team here.
- 249. Yeah, have they responded to anything?
- 250. Shapes, patterns, numbers, Fibonacci?
- 251. We can't tell what they are saying
when they respond to "hello,"
- 252. so don't get ahead of yourself.
- 253. What have you figured out?
- 254. We're just getting started.
- 255. - Good morning.
- Good morning.
- 256. This is Dr. Louise Banks.
- 257. She'll be heading your team.
- 258. - Dr. Banks. It's a pleasure meeting you.
- 259. Dr. Banks is taking over
the mission from Dr. Walker.
- 260. - Nice to see you.
- Dr. Banks, glad to see you.
- 261. That's your 15-minute warning.
- 262. You scuba-dive before?
- 263. What kind of radiation exposure
are we walking into?
- 264. Nominal, these are just for safety.
- 265. So, is there any physical contact
- 266. Am I the only one having
trouble saying "aliens"?
- 267. There's a wall, like a glass wall.
You can't get to them.
- 268. So, what do they look like?
- 269. You'll see soon enough. Hurry up.
- 270. Thank you. Turn this way, please.
- 271. All units, stand by. Over.
- 272. The suits are clumsy at first,
but you get used to them.
- 273. Load up in the second vehicle.
- 274. Hurry up, hurry up. Bring it over here.
- 275. We're clear over here, sir.
- 276. All set, sir. This is the last box
for this truck. This truck's clear.
- 277. Let's g0!
- 278. We'll be there in a few minutes.
- 279. Make sure you hold on to something.
- 280. We are now inside
the demilitarized zone.
- 281. - Raise 1.2 klicks. Over.
- Copy, Alpha.
- 282. We'll continue to monitor vitals
and signal clarity from operations.
- 283. Air picket's in position
and fully operational.
- 284. Countermeasures in place
and ready for deployment. Over.
- 285. Copy, Condor.
We will observe, but not initiate. Over.
- 286. Watch your step.
- 287. We'll keep Alpha channel open. Over.
- 288. Alpha, be advised.
Humidity increased since yesterday.
- 289. Every 18 hours,
- 290. the door opens up at the bottom.
- 291. That's where we go in.
- 292. Red team on standby.
- 293. Zero movement.
Alpha detail, clear to proceed. Over.
- 294. Copy, Condor.
Beginning our ascent now. Over.
- 295. Ten feet.
- 296. Five feet.
- 297. Two. One.
- 298. Alpha, clear
to enter antechamber. Over.
- 299. Copy, Condor.
Moving into position. Over.
- 300. Thirty feet from target.
- 301. Suit telemetry now full strength,
despite unknown interference. Over.
- 302. Five feet. Two, one.
- 303. Oxygen level, 20.3%.
No known contaminates. Over.
- 304. Vitals normal.
- 305. Gravity at 0.97.
- 306. Radio signal strength decreasing.
- 307. 90%. 85%. Fluctuating...
- 308. Yeah, that just happened.
- 309. All right, let's move. Time is wasting.
- 310. You ready?
- 311. You ready?
- 312. Let's do it.
- 313. Condor, I'm proceeding first
with Captain Marks. Over.
- 314. Radio signal strength 75%. Over.
- 315. Landed. Gravity nominal
in the antechamber. Over.
- 316. It's all good, sir.
- 317. - You can proceed.
- Stand by.
- 318. Okay, bring it up.
- 319. Vitals in line.
- 320. Radio signal strength
stable at 75%. Over.
- 321. You Okay?
- 322. Yeah.
- 323. Dr. Banks.
- 324. You can do this.
- 325. Come on.
- 326. I don't know, I... I think...
- 327. Grab her.
- 328. Dr. Donnelly, are you all right?
- 329. Dr. Donnelly. You good?
- 330. Dr. Donnelly, are you all right?
Please respond. Over.
- 331. Yeah.
- 332. Holy fuck.
- 333. We're gonna go down there,
- 334. and you're gonna start your job.
- 335. Okay-
- 336. - Okay? Everybody, move out.
- 337. Alpha detail is in position.
- 338. Team is in position.
- 339. We're on the move.
- 340. Condor, Alpha's now in the nave.
- 341. Setting up equipment
and telemetry. Over.
- 342. Oxygen level, 21.3%. Over.
- 343. So, what happens now?
- 344. They arrive.
- 345. Dr. Banks.
- 346. Dr. Banks.
- 347. You can start.
- 348. Alpha detail, proceed directly
through the decontamination...
- 349. to the inner airlock.
- 350. Do not stop until you have passed
through the airlock doors.
- 351. Do not attempt to remove
the hazmat suit
- 352. without proper assistance
of authorized personnel.
- 353. Repeat. Hazmat suits without
assistance of authorized personnel.
- 354. - Wait, just a minute. A minute.
- All right.
- 355. Keep your head low.
- 356. Clear.
- 357. - All right.
- Step on out, please.
- 358. Now hold that.
- 359. Am I fired?
- 360. You did better than the last guy.
- 361. That doesn't make me feel any better.
- 362. You both have till 0200 hours
to figure something out.
- 363. Okay, what happens then?
- 364. You go back in.
- 365. Violence continues
to spread across the US today
- 366. in the wake of the 12 landings.
- 367. The President has declared
a mandatory dusk-to-dawn curfew
- 368. after the crackdown
by the National Guard
- 369. failed to prevent a third night
of looting across the country.
- 370. In North Dakota, 144 members
of the St. Lawrence Pentecostal Cult
- 371. are feared dead
after they set their compound ablaze.
- 372. Their website claims
the arrival of the aliens
- 373. set in motion a prophecy that
12 sets of 12 should "follow the lamb."
- 374. And this is Seven-November.
Roger, stand by...
- 375. Got that request...
- 376. We're up in 15. You got any new intel?
- 377. Yeah, we've been playing back
some of their sounds.
- 378. Where does that get you?
- 379. Well, they play audio back at us
from an unseen source.
- 380. Audio of what?
- 381. It's bits of conversation from the room,
random clips of dialogue.
- 382. Really, we... We have nothing.
- 383. T-minus 14 minutes to shell access.
- 384. T-minus 14 minutes to shell access.
- 385. Are you receiving my signal?
- 386. Yes. It's sending.
- 387. - Okay, thanks.
- Okay. Good hunting.
- 388. Heading out.
- 389. Checking in for radio.
Are you receiving me?
- 390. You're coming in loud and clear.
- 391. Good luck, Doctor.
- 392. T-minus nine minutes to shell access.
- 393. T-minus nine minutes to shell access.
- 394. What's that for?
- 395. A visual aid.
- 396. Look, I'm never going to be able to
speak their words if they are talking.
- 397. But they might have
some sort of written language
- 398. or basis for visual communication.
- 399. Okay. Let's get started.
- 400. Human.
- 401. "Human."
- 402. I'm human.
- 403. What are you?
- 404. Human.
- 405. Affirmative, Alpha...
- 406. Oh, my God.
- 407. Are you getting this?
- 408. Yes, sir.
It's uploading back to base camp.
- 409. Louise.
- 410. That's incredible.
- 411. Human.
- 412. Human.
- 413. Human.
- 414. Okay-
- 415. Okay, slow down, fellas.
- 416. Slow down.
- 417. I don't wanna take away
from your success in there,
- 418. but, Dr. Banks,
is this really the right approach?
- 419. Trying to teach 'em
how to speak and read?
- 420. That's gotta take longer.
- 421. You're wrong. It's faster.
- 422. Everything you do in there
I have to explain to a room full of men
- 423. whose first and last question is,
"How can this be used against us?"
- 424. So, you're gonna
have to give me more than that.
- 425. Kangaroo.
- 426. What is that?
- 427. In 1770,
- 428. Captain James Cook's ship ran
aground off the coast of Australia,
- 429. and he led a party into the country
and they met the Aboriginal people.
- 430. One of the sailors pointed
at the animals that hop around
- 431. and put their babies in their pouch,
- 432. and he asked what they were,
and the Aborigines said, "Kanguru."
- 433. And the point is?
- 434. It wasn't until later that they learned that
"kanguru" means "I don't understand."
- 435. So, I need this so that we
don't misinterpret things in there,
- 436. otherwise this is
gonna take 10 times as long.
- 437. I could sell that for now.
- 438. But I need you
to submit your vocabulary words
- 439. before the next session.
- 440. Fair.
- 441. And remember
what happened to the Aborigines.
- 442. A more advanced race
nearly wiped 'em out.
- 443. It's a good story.
- 444. Thanks.
- 445. It's not true.
- 446. But it proves my point.
- 447. We think we were able to reproduce
- 448. some prime number sequences
back at them.
- 449. So, that's something.
- 450. Well, congratulations. You're a parrot.
- 451. Well, it's a lot more than that,
you cheeky bastard.
- 452. Don't you see?
They can't seem to follow our algebra.
- 453. But complex behaviors? That clicks.
- 454. Well, that doesn't make
any sense at all, does it?
- 455. The problem is, not everyone shares
our policy of being open with the aliens.
- 456. Have you met General Shang?
- 457. Call sign for him is "Big Domino."
- 458. Whatever Shang does,
at least four other nations will follow.
- 459. - Louise, you have to gain ground today.
- 460. - You have a vocabulary list for me?
- I do.
- 461. You're gonna teach them
your name and Ian's?
- 462. Yes, so that we can learn their names,
if they have names,
- 463. and then introduce pronouns later.
- 464. These are all grade-school words.
- 465. "Eat."Walk."
- 466. Help me understand.
- 467. Okay.
- 468. No, no, no, not the top!
- 469. Okay, this is
where you wanna get to, right?
- 470. - That is the question.
- 471. So, first we need to make sure
that they understand what a question is.
- 472. Okay? The nature
of a request for information
- 473. along with a response.
- 474. Then, we need to clarify
- 475. the difference between
a specific "you" and a collective "you,"
- 476. because we don't want to know
why Joe Alien is here.
- 477. We want to know why they all landed.
- 478. And "purpose" requires
an understanding of intent.
- 479. We need to find out,
do they make conscious choices
- 480. or is their motivation so instinctive
- 481. that they don't understand
a "why" question at all.
- 482. And... And biggest of all, we need to
have enough vocabulary with them
- 483. that we understand their answer.
- 484. I get it.
- 485. Stick to your list.
- 486. Just don't add anything to it.
- 487. Gravity, 0.97.
Oxygen level, 21.4%. Over.
- 488. Condor, Alpha's now in the main.
- 489. Setting up equipment
and telemetry. Over.
- 490. Let's get started.
- 491. "Louise."
- 492. Louise. I am Louise.
- 493. What is that?
- 494. Is that a new symbol? I can't tell.
- 495. I don't know.
I think it's the symbol for "human" again.
- 496. It just has a little curl on the end,
maybe to indicate a question.
- 497. I don't know.
- 498. I don't know, Louise.
- 499. I think they're getting confused.
- 500. Dr. Banks, perhaps we should
move on to the next word.
- 501. Dr. Banks?
- 502. - It's okay, Nate.
- What's going on?
- 503. Hey, hey, hey. What are you doing?
- 504. - Yeah, I'm fine.
- Are you insane?
- 505. They need to see me.
- 506. She's taking off her hazmat suit.
- 507. Is it okay?
- 508. You're risking contamination.
- 509. They need to see me.
- 510. Dr. Banks.
- 511. Dr. Banks.
- 512. She's walking towards the screen.
- 513. Should we abort?
- 514. Request noted. Stand by for frag order.
- 515. Go back to your stations.
- 516. Now that's a proper introduction.
- 517. Okay.
- 518. "Louise."
- 519. I am Louise.
- 520. Ian, you want to introduce yourself?
- 521. Yeah.
- 522. Louise.
- 523. Screw it.
- 524. Everybody dies, right?
- 525. Sir, Donnelly is taking off
his hazmat suit.
- 526. Permission to abort?
- 527. Continue the session.
- 528. Ian.
- 529. Louise.
- 530. You.
- 531. Who are you?
- 532. I think those are their names.
- 533. They have names.
- 534. So, what are we gonna call them?
- 535. I don't know.
- 536. I was thinking Abbott and Costello.
- 537. Yeah.
- 538. - Yeah?
- Yeah, I like it.
- 539. I like it.
- 540. Team 1, exit your vehicle
- 541. and proceed directly ahead
to the decontamination tent.
- 542. Leave your respirator on
until you reach the equipment room.
- 543. I know.
- 544. Team 2, exit your vehicles and continue
to the decontamination tent.
- 545. Leave your respirators on
- 546. and do not hesitate
until you reach the equipment room.
- 547. How do you feel?
- 548. Overworked.
- 549. Well, I guess I don't need to tell you,
you're putting yourself at risk.
- 550. There are no signs
of radiation poisoning yet.
- 551. We'll see how your blood tests look.
- 552. For now, I'm gonna
give you another boost.
- 553. Okay.
- 554. No radiation.
- 555. Nothing else we can detect either,
- 556. but I'd give 'em
a strong cocktail regardless.
- 557. It's the first time
we've made significant progress.
- 558. All right.
- 559. We'll take the risk.
- 560. - Okay, honey...
- What is going on there?
- 561. Honey.
- Is there anything you can tell me?
- 562. No... You don't need to worry, okay?
- 563. - How can I not worry?
- Just calm down.
- 564. Just calm down.
- 565. Becky asked me if
the monsters are going to kill Daddy.
- 566. Honey, it's not gonna happen.
- 567. Just stay safe.
- 568. You don't need to worry.
- 569. Please, I'm so scared.
- 570. All junior xenolinguistics
and science personnel must observe
- 571. general curfew
unless expressly authorized
- 572. for extended work hours by unit COs.
- 573. Curfew in effect as of 2200 hours.
- 574. Notice to all late workers,
fire watchers and night staff.
- 575. Effective immediately, midnight rations
will be sewed all night.
- 576. Here are some of the many things
we don't know about heptapods.
- 577. Greek. Hepta, "Seven." Pod, "Foot."
- 578. "Seven feet." Heptapod.
- 579. Who are they?
- 580. Trying to answer this
in any meaningful way
- 581. is hampered by the fact that,
- 582. outside being able
to see them and hear them,
- 583. the heptapods leave
absolutely no footprint.
- 584. The chemical composition
of their spaceship is unknown.
- 585. The shell emits no waste,
no gas, no radiation.
- 586. Assuming that the shells
communicate with each other,
- 587. they do so without detection.
- 588. The air between the shells is untroubled
by sonic emission or light wave.
- 589. Are they scientists or tourists?
- 590. If they're scientists, they don't seem
to ask a lot of questions.
- 591. Why did they park where they did?
- 592. The world's most decorated experts
can't crack that one.
- 593. The most plausible theory is that
they chose places on Earth
- 594. with the lowest incidence
of lightning strikes.
- 595. But there are exceptions.
- 596. The next most plausible theory is that
Sheena Easton had a hit song
- 597. at each of these sites in 1980.
So, we just don't know.
- 598. How do they communicate?
- 599. Here, Louise is putting us all to shame.
- 600. The first breakthrough was to discover
that there's no correlation
- 601. between what a heptapod says
and what a heptapod writes.
- 602. Unlike all written human languages,
their writing is semasiographic.
- 603. It conveys meaning.
It doesn't represent sound.
- 604. Perhaps they view our form of writing
as a wasted opportunity,
- 605. passing up a second
- 606. We have our friends in Pakistan
- 607. to thank for their study
of how heptapods write.
- 608. Because, unlike speech,
a Iogogram is free of time.
- 609. Like their ship or their bodies,
- 610. their written language has
no forward or backward direction.
- 611. Linguists call this
- 612. which raises the question,
"Is this how they think?"
- 613. Imagine you wanted to
write a sentence using two hands,
- 614. starting from either side.
- 615. You would have to know
each word you wanted to use
- 616. as well as
how much space that it would occupy.
- 617. A heptapod can write
a complex sentence
- 618. in two seconds, effortlessly.
- 619. It's taken us a month to make
the simplest reply.
- 620. Next, expanding vocabulary.
- 621. Louise thinks it could easily take
another month to be ready for that.
- 622. Hey.
- 623. Hey.
- 624. Weber's looking for you.
- 625. Yeah, well, why do you think
I'm hiding out here?
- 626. Come on up.
- 627. Come on.
- 628. Thanks.
- 629. Nice out here, huh?
- 630. Yeah, it's a nice view.
- 631. Away from the noise.
- 632. You know, I was just thinking about you.
- 633. You approach language
like a mathematician.
- 634. You know that, right?
- 635. I will take that as a compliment.
- 636. Yeah, well, it is.
- 637. It's...
- 638. I watch you steer us around
these communication traps
- 639. that I didn't even know existed.
- 640. Say what?
- 641. I guess that's why I'm single.
- 642. Trust me, you can
- 643. and still end up single.
- 644. I feel like
everything that happens in there
- 645. comes down to the two of us.
- 646. Yeah, it's a good thing though, right?
You and I?
- 647. Have you seen the jokers
that we're working with?
- 648. I'm glad I got you.
- 649. Tonight, the first photograph
of the aliens goes viral.
- 650. Biological contamination is
a major risk factor at the Montana site,
- 651. so say environmental pressure groups.
- 652. Eight-hundred thousand
march on Washington
- 653. to protest
the government's handling of the crisis.
- 654. All this, and more special coverage.
- 655. First contact with whoever it is
that is inside that thing,
- 656. and who do we have running the show?
- 657. That's right, folks.
The same government
- 658. who ruined our healthcare
and bankrupted our military.
- 659. Look at these people.
- 660. Most of them don't even have guns.
- 661. We could be facing
a full-scale invasion,
- 662. and our president
is just willing to sit back
- 663. and let them waltz in
and take our country.
- 664. We are falling asleep
at the wheel, people.
- 665. You know what I'm talking about.
I know you do.
- 666. What if the smartest thing
we could do right now
- 667. would be to give them a show of force?
- 668. I'm talking about a shot across the bow.
- 669. I wanna hear what you think.
- 670. Caller number one, you're on the air.
What do you think about all this?
- 671. What's this word?
- 672. "Planet."
- 673. No, no.
- 674. That's, like... The Earth is a planet.
- 675. Want to see my project
from Miss Garriott's class?
- 676. Yeah, little nose.
- 677. We had to make up our own TV show.
- 678. If we had one.
- 679. - And who are those two people?
- That's you and Dad.
- 680. The show is called
Mommy and Daddy Talk to Animals.
- 681. Well, it's lovely.
- 682. Okay.
- 683. You know it's okay to be sad
that your dad and I...
- 684. I know. I'm not.
- 685. 'Cause we both love you very much.
- 686. I know. It's just a cartoon. Not real.
- 687. Louise?
- 688. You all right?
- 689. Yeah.
- 690. Yeah, I'm fine.
- 691. I'm not sure it's something I can explain.
- 692. When was your last checkup
with Dr. Kettler?
- 693. I'm okay.
- 694. I'm gonna get some air.
- 695. I'm okay.
- 696. - All right.
- I'm fine. Yeah.
- 697. How you feeling?
- 698. I need some sleep, but I'm fine.
- 699. Yeah.
- 700. You know, I was doing some reading
about this idea that
- 701. if you immerse yourself
into a foreign language,
- 702. that you can actually rewire your brain.
- 703. Yeah, the Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis.
- 704. The theory that...
- 705. It's the theory that
- 706. the language you speak
determines how you think and...
- 707. Yeah. It affects how you see everything.
- 708. I'm curious,
- 709. are you dreaming in their language?
- 710. I may have had a few dreams,
but I don't...
- 711. I don't think that
that makes me unfit to do this job.
- 712. Did you sleep?
- 713. A little.
- 714. Do you know Mandarin?
- 715. It is shifting.
- 716. The voice you're about to hear
- 717. belongs to China's military chief,
- 718. General Shang.
- 719. Pull it up.
- 720. We got a satellite feed here
of who he's talking to,
- 721. if you want to look.
- 722. Wait, go back.
- 723. Stop.
- 724. He's saying that each of the 12
is offering advanced technology.
- 725. And back again. And play.
- 726. "Our science team is attempting
to decode the sets."
- 727. "Sets." I don't know what that means.
- 728. Something about advantage.
- 729. "Suits, honor, and flowers."
- 730. I don't...
- 731. I don't know, that's all.
- 732. I don't know what it means either.
- 733. An hour ago, China mobilized forces.
- 734. And now, Russia is following suit.
- 735. Shang's about to start something.
- 736. Following suit, "suits".
- 737. Suits. Honor. Flowers.
- 738. Colonel, those are all
tile sets in mahjong.
- 739. God, are they...
- 740. Are they using a game
to converse with their heptapods?
- 741. Maybe. Why?
- 742. Well, let's say that I taught them chess
instead of English.
- 743. Every conversation would be a game,
- 744. every idea expressed
through opposition, victory, defeat.
- 745. You see the problem?
- 746. If all I ever gave you was a hammer...
- 747. Everything's a nail.
- 748. We need to ask the big question.
- 749. Ready or not.
- 750. Right, so...
- 751. Okay, let me know
what temperature you use, okay?
- 752. No, this is the same as before.
- 753. - See.
- 754. Yeah, no, but between three and four.
- 755. - All right, time to go.
- 756. Ninety-six minutes remaining
in the session. Over.
- 757. Okay.
- 758. HQPtaPOdS purpose.
- 759. Heptapod purpose. Earth.
What is your purpose?
- 760. Do we only have Costello?
- 761. Okay. There you are.
- 762. What does it say?
- 763. "Offer weapon."
- 764. But you saw what they wrote.
- 765. Using a word
they don't fully understand.
- 766. - It could be just a request.
- Or a warning.
- 767. Enough!
- 768. Louise?
- 769. We don't know if they understand
- 770. the difference between
a weapon and a tool.
- 771. Our language, like our culture,
- 772. and sometimes one can be both.
- 773. I think it's quite possible that they're
asking us to offer them something,
- 774. not the other way around,
like the first part of a trade.
- 775. So, how do we clarify their intentions
beyond those two words?
- 776. Well, I go back in.
- 777. Right away, we go back in
and we clear this up.
- 778. It's more complicated than that.
- 779. How is it more complicated than that?
- 780. Colonel, the Secretary of Defense
is on the line for you.
- 781. We need to sit on this information
till we know what it means.
- 782. So, we aren't sharing it
with our enemies.
- 783. We have to consider the idea
- 784. that our visitors are prodding us
to fight among ourselves
- 785. until only one faction prevails.
- 786. There's no evidence of that.
- 787. Sure there is.
- 788. Just grab a history book.
- 789. The British with India,
the Germans with Rwanda.
- 790. They even got a name for it in Hungary.
- 791. Yeah.
- 792. We're a world with no single leader.
- 793. It's impossible to deal with
just one of us.
- 794. And with the word "weapon" now...
- 795. Halpern.
- 796. Yes, sir.
- 797. Copy that. Waiting for instructions.
- 798. No confirmation yet.
- 799. Standing by.
- 800. Anything?
- 801. What did they say?
- 802. China and Russia are off the grid.
They aren't speaking to anyone.
- 803. Whatever they learned
in their last session has them spooked.
- 804. Yes, sir.
- 805. We have orders to do the same.
- 806. Wait, these are our allies.
- 807. Colonel, you can't shut us down.
- 808. - Put us on radio silence.
- Do it.
- 809. We received a message from the...
- 810. Damn it!
- 811. We need to be talking to each other.
- 812. You wanna talk to them?
Find out what this means.
- 813. Base-camp talk is now offline.
- 814. - All interpreters . . .
- No confirmation. They're offline.
- 815. stand down
and report to unit coordinators.
- 816. We've never re-entered
a session before.
- 817. Look, Louise, trust me, okay?
We've got time.
- 818. We've just gotta step on it, all right?
- 819. "Use weapon."
- 820. This is the alien message
- 821. said to have provoked
the Chinese government
- 822. to withdraw their scientists
from the international mission today.
- 823. In a statement, General Shang said,
- 824. "China no longer trusts the aliens
who want to divide us.
- 825. "Humanity must be protected."
- 826. China has asked for immediate talks
at the UN.
- 827. Alpha one-niner, this is Condor. Over.
- 828. Alpha one-niner, this is Condor.
- 829. Come in. Over.
- 830. Captain Marks, Condor.
- 831. Not receiving transmission.
Squelch twice if you hear mine.
- 832. Captain Marks, all escort groups
are ordered to cease all activity.
- 833. No, no, no.
Dr. Banks, you can't go in there.
- 834. We just need to ask one question.
- 835. Dr. Banks, the session is finished.
- 836. You can't go back in. It's dangerous.
- 837. Look, we just need five minutes.
Don't sweat it.
- 838. Marks, let them go.
- 839. Hey, Abbott.
- 840. So, what are we calling this,
- 841. No, 36, part two.
- 842. Okay.
- 843. Yeah.
- 844. Why they on their own?
- 845. We've been attempting
to hail Captain Marks.
- 846. The escort units are not responding, sir.
- 847. Why not?
- 848. Send security.
- 849. "Offer weapon. Question mark."
- 850. Are you offering us something?
- 851. "Technology. Apparatus. Method"?
- 852. Yeah, see, this is a different word.
- 853. This segment, it's a lot busier.
- 854. "Give.
- 855. "Technology.
- 856. "NOW."
- 857. What's he doing?
- 858. Captain, on your 10.
- 859. Mutineers are to be apprehended
- 860. We don't want to risk
antagonizing our visitors. Over.
- 861. Security detail inbound, sir.
T-minus four minutes remaining.
- 862. We need to see this through.
- 863. Okay, this is it. Lock and load.
- 864. We just need to hold them off
until it's done.
- 865. Copy that. Warning shots
and suppressive fire only.
- 866. Load up and get to cover.
- 867. Stay fresh and we can avoid casualties.
- 868. Abbott wants me to write on the barrier.
- 869. Can you even do that?
- 870. I don't know.
- 871. I can't do it with both hands.
- 872. Louise.
- 873. What is that?
- 874. - Free fire!
- Over there! I'm hit! I'm hit!
- 875. Hey, hey, hey. Take it easy.
- 876. You suffered a concussion.
- 877. Just lay back.
- 878. How are you feeling?
- 879. How is Ian?
- 880. Same as you. He's okay.
- 881. Who...
- 882. Who did this?
- 883. Some soldiers.
Been watching too much TV.
- 884. What is that?
- 885. Now, take it easy. Take it easy.
- 886. The site's no longer secure.
- 887. We're standing by to evacuate.
- 888. Where's Ian?
- 889. Weber came and got him
maybe 10 minutes ago.
- 890. But he wouldn't leave
until he knew you were okay.
- 891. The whole tent is on the clock
- 892. to figure out whatever it is
you were given up there.
- 893. This is all of it.
- 894. The feed wasn't interrupted
by the explosion?
- 895. Not as far as we can see.
- 896. You see something?
- 897. I don't know yet.
- 898. I'm gonna need my team
to get together with Louise's team.
- 899. I need everybody working on this.
- 900. We cannot leave.
- 901. Glad to see you're awake.
- 902. We need to go back in and we need
to explain to them this wasn't our fault.
- 903. - We can't go back inside.
- We have to tell them... We have to.
- 904. What happened in there was an attack.
- 905. We can hope for the best, but
I have orders to prepare for retaliation.
- 906. We may have to evacuate.
- 907. No, that's the wrong move.
As long as they stay, we have to stay.
- 908. Well, they're not leaving.
- 909. Why does this feel worse?
- 910. China is on the offensive.
- 911. They're positioning their military
- 912. to blow the alien vessel
right out of the sky.
- 913. And if this happens,
- 914. we can't sit around waiting
for retaliation, so get prepared.
- 915. The Air Force and infantry
are standing by.
- 916. Yes, sir.
- 917. Tonight, China becomes
the first world power
- 918. to declare war against the aliens.
- 919. Following the failure of
diplomatic efforts at the United Nations,
- 920. China has confirmed that
its language experts have, tonight,
- 921. delivered an ultimatum
at the Shanghai site.
- 922. In a televised statement,
- 923. Chairman of
the People's Liberation Army,
- 924. said the aliens have 24 hours
to leave Chinese territory
- 925. or face destruction.
- 926. And he urged all other world leaders
to unite with China
- 927. and take a similar stance.
- 928. With a huge buildup of forces
at their landing sites,
- 929. Pakistan, Russia, and Sudan are
thought to be following China's lead.
- 930. It can't be random.
- 931. It's going to take us years.
- 932. What's this term here?
- 933. Mom.
- 934. Mom.
- 935. Sweetie?
- 936. What's this term for that thing like a...
- 937. Like a technical term?
- 938. Where we make a deal and
we both get something out of it?
- 939. "Compromise."
- 940. No.
- 941. Like, it's a competition,
but both sides end up happy.
- 942. Like a win-win.
- 943. More science-y than that.
- 944. If you want science, call your father.
- 945. Thank you.
- 946. Sorry.
- 947. It's okay. I'm up.
- 948. What time is it?
- 949. It's time you open that bottle
you've been hiding.
- 950. You cracked something, didn't you?
- 951. Yeah, come here.
- 952. Take a look at this section.
- 953. It seems to be talking about time.
- 954. Their symbol for "time" is everywhere.
- 955. So, what is this?
- 956. A formula for faster-than-light travel?
- 957. Who can tell?
- 958. There are too many gaps.
- 959. Nothing's complete.
- 960. Then it dawned on me.
- 961. Come here.
- 962. Right here.
- 963. Stop focusing on the ones,
look at the zeroes.
- 964. How much of this is data?
How much of it is negative space?
- 965. So, I measured it.
- 966. 0.0833 recurring.
- 967. Perhaps you'd like that as a fraction.
- 968. One of 12.
- 969. What they're saying right here
is that this is one of 12.
- 970. We are part of a larger whole.
- 971. Or we're one of 12 contestants
for the prize.
- 972. Why do I have to talk to him?
- 973. We're all working together here.
- 974. We need to talk to the other sites.
- 975. We need to help them with what they've
gotten from the other heptapods.
- 976. In case you don't remember,
we're blacked out.
- 977. China just threatened to destroy
their shell. We're on our own.
- 978. Yeah, but this says that
all of the pieces fit together.
- 979. And I'm telling you that
no one else cares.
- 980. Two hours ago, we pulled this audio
off a secure channel in Russia.
- 981. Someone on the science team there
was broadcasting wide.
- 982. In their final session, the alien said,
"There is no time.
- 983. "Many become one."
- 984. I feel we have all been given weapons.
- 985. If anyone is receiving this, please...
- 986. Well, I mean,
- 987. there are a lot of ways
you can interpret what he's saying.
- 988. I don't need an interpreter
to know what this means.
- 989. Russia just executed
one of their own experts
- 990. to keep their secrets.
- 991. "Many become one" could
just be their way of saying,
- 992. "Some assembly required."
- 993. Why hand it out to us in pieces?
- 994. Why not just give it all over?
- 995. Well, what better way to force us
to work together for once?
- 996. Even if I did believe you,
- 997. how in the world you gonna get
anybody else to play along
- 998. or give up their data?
- 999. We offer ours in return.
- 1000. Yeah?
- 1001. What, trade?
- 1002. It's a non-zero sum game.
- 1003. "Non-zero sum game."
- 1004. That's it.
- 1005. Yeah, thanks.
- 1006. Nine of the landing sites
have gone total comms blackout.
- 1007. Only way to reach them
is to physically drive there and yell
- 1008. at the border guards, which we're doing,
but it won't be fast enough.
- 1009. There's got to be a way to...
To get the message to them.
- 1010. To our allies maybe, but at this stage,
it's too little too late.
- 1011. What we need is to get
all the other nations online
- 1012. before one starts global war,
- 1013. and there's no way for us to reach them.
- 1014. Wait. Hold on a second.
- 1015. There is.
- 1016. It's right above us.
- 1017. That's problematic for us right now.
- 1018. The Pentagon's convinced
our shell will retaliate.
- 1019. My guess is they'll order us
to evacuate within the hour.
- 1020. Look, they're not our enemy.
- 1021. They've made
no act of aggression towards us.
- 1022. Maybe this is
their way of being aggressive.
- 1023. That's not the question.
- 1024. Well, what is the question?
- 1025. How do we get you back in that room
when it's half a mile straight up?
- 1026. I think our work here is done.
- 1027. It's in the hands of our superiors now.
- 1028. What the hell is she doing?
- 1029. No. God. Oh, God. No.
- 1030. Costello?
- 1031. Where's Abbott?
- 1032. I'm sorry.
- 1033. We're sorry.
- 1034. I need you to...
- 1035. I need you to send a message
to the other sites.
- 1036. I don't...
- 1037. I don't understand.
- 1038. What is your purpose here?
- 1039. How can you know the future?
- 1040. I don't...
- 1041. I don't understand.
- 1042. Who is this Child?
- 1043. The show is called
Mommy and Daddy Talk to Animals.
- 1044. Wait.
- 1045. No... Wait!
- 1046. - Dr. Banks!
- 1047. Are you all right?
- 1048. - Hey. You all right?
- 1049. - Here, come on. What happened?
- I'm fine.
- 1050. Tried to figure it out. This is too big.
- 1051. Doesn't matter now.
We have orders to evacuate.
- 1052. - Why?
- Russia and Sudan are following China.
- 1053. Ian. I don't understand why the...
- 1054. Help me, Mama.
- 1055. Louise?
- 1056. Oh, my God.
- 1057. Mom.
- 1058. Mama!
- 1059. Sorry, honey.
- 1060. What day is it? Do you know, baby?
- 1061. Sunday.
- 1062. Are you gonna leave me like Daddy did?
- 1063. Hannah, honey,
your daddy didn't leave you.
- 1064. You're gonna see him this weekend.
- 1065. He doesn't look at me
the same way anymore.
- 1066. That's my fault.
- 1067. I told him something
that he wasn't ready to hear.
- 1068. What?
- 1069. Well, believe it or not,
- 1070. I know something
that's going to happen.
- 1071. I can't explain how I know. I just do.
- 1072. And when I told your daddy,
he got really mad.
- 1073. And he said I made the wrong choice.
- 1074. What? What's going to happen?
- 1075. It has to do with a really rare disease.
- 1076. And it's unstoppable.
- 1077. Kind of like you are.
- 1078. Your swimming, and your poetry,
- 1079. and all the other amazing things
that you share with the world.
- 1080. I am unstoppable?
- 1081. Yeah.
- 1082. L 9011 you.
- 1083. Louise?
- 1084. Louise.
- 1085. I just realized why my husband left me.
- 1086. My husband left me.
- 1087. You were married?
- 1088. Come on. Let's get out of here.
- 1089. Mama?
- 1090. Yeah?
- 1091. Why is my name Hannah?
- 1092. Yeah, got it right here.
- 1093. Get those people back, please.
- 1094. Well, your name is very special
because it is a palindrome.
- 1095. It reads the same
forward and backward.
- 1096. - All right, guys, give me a hand here.
- Yes, sir.
- 1097. That goes in the back.
- 1098. Civilian contractors must have their
- 1099. and passkeys when checking...
- 1100. Evacuation underway...
- 1101. Hey-
- 1102. Look, we're done here.
- 1103. We're taking this with us.
- 1104. I can read it.
- 1105. - I know what it is.
- 1106. It's not a weapon, it's a gift.
- 1107. The weapon is their language.
- 1108. They gave it all to us.
Do you understand what that means?
- 1109. So we can learn Heptapod,
if we survive.
- 1110. If you learn it, when you really learn it,
- 1111. you begin to perceive time
the way that they do.
- 1112. So you can see what's to come.
- 1113. But time, it isn't the same for them.
- 1114. - It's non-linear.
- 1115. We did our best, but it wasn't enough.
- 1116. The captain will load you up.
- 1117. You're lifting off in five minutes.
- 1118. Ian, Louise,
it was an honor to work with ya.
- 1119. Good luck.
- 1120. Hey, Colonel!
- 1121. I'm gonna find out where we're going.
- 1122. Wake up, Mommy.
- 1123. Dr. Banks.
- 1124. A pleasure.
- 1125. General Shang.
- 1126. The pleasure is mine, really.
- 1127. Your President said
- 1128. he was honored to host me
at the celebration...
- 1129. - Yes.
- ... but I confess,
- 1130. the only reason why I'm here is to
- 1131. meet you in person.
- 1132. Me? Well, I'm flattered. Thank you.
- 1133. Now, 18 months ago,
- 1134. you did something remarkable.
- 1135. Something not even my superior
- 1136. And what's that?
- 1137. You changed my mind.
- 1138. You're the reason for this unification.
- 1139. All because you reached out to me
on my private number.
- 1140. Your private number.
- 1141. General, I don't know
your private number.
- 1142. Now you know.
- 1143. I do not claim to know
how your mind works,
- 1144. but I believe it was important for you
to see that.
- 1145. I called you, didn't I?
- 1146. Yes, you did.
- 1147. Louise.
- 1148. - All right, let's shut down the system.
- 1149. There's a sat-line here dialing China.
- 1150. Here? What do you mean "here"?
- 1151. Come on, come on.
- 1152. Whose phone is it?
- 1153. It's your phone, sir.
- 1154. Search base camp now.
- 1155. Find out who's using that phone.
- 1156. - Hold on to those coordinates.
- Yes, sir.
- 1157. Come on. What'd I say?
- 1158. What'd I say? Come on.
- 1159. Come on.
- 1160. I will never forget what you said.
- 1161. You told me my wife's dying words.
- 1162. Found the source of the phone call.
- 1163. It's in the clean room.
Waiting for instructions.
- 1164. What are you doing?
- 1165. - What are you doing?
- Changing someone's mind.
- 1166. - Can you buy me 20 seconds?
- We don't have time for this right now.
- 1167. No, trust me, buy me 20 seconds.
Do you trust me?
- 1168. - Okay! Yeah.
- You trust me?
- 1169. Dr. Banks!
- 1170. Drop the phone now or we shoot!
- 1171. - Drop it!
- Yeah. I'm sorry!
- 1172. You're committing an act of treason!
- 1173. - Yes.
- Drop it!
- 1174. It's done. I'm done.
- 1175. Communications blackout from all 12
landing sites continues this evening.
- 1176. Hold on, we are just hearing...
- 1177. And I'm being told
- 1178. we're going to cut this report
to tell you breaking news.
- 1179. Breaking now, China has called
an emergency press conference.
- 1180. General Shang, Commander-in-chief
of the People's Liberation Army,
- 1181. has announced in
an emergency press conference
- 1182. that China is standing down.
- 1183. China is stating that
all intelligence they have received
- 1184. will be shared immediately
with all the other landing sites.
- 1185. Scientists from around the world
are sifting through information received
- 1186. - from the UK, Japan...
- Breaking news,
- 1187. the Russian armed forces are now
revealing the information
- 1188. they've acquired from
both of their landing sites
- 1189. and have declared the Black Sea
a demilitarized zone.
- 1190. one of the 12 pieces of this puzzle
that's being slowly put together.
- 1191. So, Hannah.
- 1192. This is where your story begins.
- 1193. The day they departed.
- 1194. You all right?
- 1195. Despite knowing the journey
and where it leads,
- 1196. I embrace it,
- 1197. and I welcome every moment of it.
- 1198. - H-A-N-N-A-H.
- 1199. - Now backward. H-A-N-N-A-H.
- 1200. Hannah.
- 1201. You ready, baby?
- 1202. Okay.
- 1203. Hi.
- 1204. - You good?
- All right. See ya.
- 1205. Daddy!
- 1206. You Okay?
- 1207. Daddy's gonna roll over you.
- 1208. All right, you ready?
- 1209. Guess what? Star stuff.
- 1210. - Yeah.
- 1211. If you could see your whole life
from the start to finish,
- 1212. would you change things?
- 1213. Maybe I'd say what I feel more often.
- 1214. I... I don't know.
- 1215. You know, I've had my head tilted up to
the stars for as long as I can remember.
- 1216. You know what surprised me the most?
- 1217. It wasn't meeting them.
- 1218. It was meeting you.
- 1219. I forgot how good it felt
to be held by you.
- 1220. You wanna make a baby?
- 1221. Yes.
- 1222. Yeah.
