Taken Episode 06 – Charlie And Lisa


Previously on Taken… What do you want from me?!
Leave my family alone! You really do
need to see someone. There is something in my head. I think the things
are tracking devices. – Dad?
– He isn’t me, Charlie. He’s making me from
the picture in your head. They’ll come for Charlie next.
You gotta go. Charlie, we’re gonna
move around for a while. Is this because of
what happened to dad? What are these?
– Tom Clarke. The Tom Clarke
who ruined my father, who thought our entire program
was a lie. Kind of ironic, Jake. The country’s leading debunker turns out to have
a half- alien half brother. Don’t you want to know
what changed his mind? You’re sleeping with Eric Crawford,
Owen Crawford’s son, the son of the man
who ruined your mother’s life. How could you do that?! He’s not his father. He’s covering up the biggest secret
in American history, he’s lying to the public
on a regular basis- What in the hell makes you think
that he’s not lying to you?! We believe you’re carrying the evidence of a spacecraft that crashed in
the New Mexico desert in 1947. What kind of evidence? We believe you recovered bodies
and that you’re transporting them. You and your friends here
will be detained for interfering with a move of Air Force personnel. Look! Look! How long you think you can
cover something like this up? The crates. Get these people onto the trucks. – Do it now!
– Yes, sir. – Step up.
– Let’s go. All right, everybody into the trucks! Move it! This way! This way, please. Let’s go. That’s it, move it up. What are you gonna do
with all these witnesses? Hold them for 72 hours, convince them what they saw
was the Goodyear blimp. They’re not gonna believe that.
They’re gonna talk about this. Let them. The more people talk at once, The more it sounds like
nothing but noise. They took your bodies, too, didn’t they? Now what are you gonna do now they’ve taken back all your proof? It didn’t have to be this way. How could it have been
any different? It’s all gone. You gotta love it. We must have been getting close. Why do you say that? Remember I said I thought
they had an organic transmitter? I think it was one of the bodies. We missed that. It was right in front of us,
and we missed it. They couldn’t afford
to have us figure it out, so they just… Took it all back. Every last bit of it. Not quite everything. Well, as expected,
they pulled our plug. ERlC: What are they going to do? All our evidence,
all our research is gone. I thought I made
a pretty good argument. “Senator,” I said, “the reason we have
nothing to show you “is that it was plucked
from our slimy little hands “by a flying saucer.
You can’t deny that. Right out of the sky, and pluck.” Too bad we couldn’t find Charlie Keys. You know what burns my ass?
I’ll tell you what burns my ass. If we’d gotten any funding at all, I could have gotten that
positioning system running. We could have tracked Keys
by that thing in his head and found him or anyone else
taken in 24 hours. What are you going to do now? Couple of buddies of mine from Yale
are going into biotech. How about you? I just keep picturing Tom Clarke
smiling that smug smile of his and saying, “Still don’t know
how it flies, do you?” What you keep picturing
is his sister dumping you. I still want to know what made
Tom Clarke a believer. You could have had your answer,
but you thought with “little Eric.” “Hey, little buddy,
where do you want to go?” “Over to Becky’s house.” “Okay.” “Hey, let’s take her to see the alien.” “Good idea.
That’ll really impress her.” My own personal foibles aside,
I still want the answer to that. I want to know
what changed his mind. ALLlE: Is every moment
of our lives built into us before we’re born? If it is. does that make us Iess responsible
for the things we do. or is the responsibility
built in. too? After you hit the ball. do you stand
and wait to see if it goes out. or do you start running
and let nature take its course? If that ball had been
another couple of inches, it would have gone
out of the park, end of story. I swung too late.
I thought it was gonna sink. That’s why I like baseball-
you can’t make assumptions. I thought you liked it
because it was impossibly hard and there are useless statistics
you could memorize. Yeah, that, too. Ohh- Are you all right? Yeah, I’ll be fine. We’d better get home. This was your grandmother’s. Love you, sweetie. Every day and twice on Sundays. Honey! Stay with him. I’m gonna call 911. It’s beautiful. So are you. He’s gonna know it, too. Who? The guy you’re gonna
meet one day. He’s gonna take one look at you… And he’s gonna know there is nowhere else
he wants to be. # I gave you my time # # Why you wanna… # Sorry it took so long, honey. Charlie? Charlie? Charlie? Honey? Charl- Honey. Honey! You can’t run off like that.
I thought- What’s wrong? Where were you, sweetie?
Where’d you go? Oh, Charlie. He’d been, um… Getting weaker
since your grandmother died. I kept asking him
to see someone, but… He wouldn’t. He was so…resigned. I guess he understood
what was happening to him. That sounds just like
something he would say. Damn it! Damn it, Danny! Hey, Danny! – Danny! Carol, what’s up? My husband just died is what’s up. My husband is dead, and I’d appreciate it if you’d stop
making all that noise. Oh, man. I’m so sorry. If there’s anything I can do… ALLlE: People say
that when we grow up. we kick at everything we’ve been told. we rebel against the world our parents have worked so hard
to bring us into. that part of growing up
is kicking at the ties that bind. But I don’t think
that’s why we kick at all. I think we kick
when we find out that our parents don’t know much more
about the world than we do. They don’t have all the answers. We rebel when we find out that
they’ve been lying to us all along. that there isn’t
any Santa Claus at all. Hey, do you like Hüsker Dü? I think Bob Mould
is probably as deep as it gets. I saw them last year
in Sacramento. He was great. I’m Nina Toth. – I’m Lisa.
– Hi. So how was your first day? Brutal? This place is totally harsh,
so I’m gonna make a suggestion. You wanna be friends? For life. Lisa! And that’s my stepdad. – Really?
– Yep. My mum’s in Berkeley taking a class
in alternative nutrition. Oh, cool. So it’s just me and Danny. Well, I gotta go. Okay. Make sure you call me. – All right.
– Okay. – Bye.
– Bye. Think how quickly our differences worldwide
would vanish if we were facing
an alien threat from outside this world. And yet. I ask you… What could be more alien… Wait till she forms her own band. All right. Lisa! Dinner’s ready. Lisa, come on. Dinner’s ready. Potatoes… Lise? Lise? Lisa? I’m in here. Oh. Sorry. Everything all right? There’s a phone number
in my jacket pocket. Could you get it for me? Yeah. Number one… And number two. That ought to hold you. Mr Holding, do you
have any champagne? I’ve got some Pepsi. – Pepsi will do.
– All right. Just don’t expect me
to give you the “today you are
a woman” speech. Please don’t. I’m really glad you called me. I’m really glad you came. Ladies. Thank you. Here you go. – Thanks.
– Lisa… Today you are a woman. – Well said!
– Cheers. You’re the very first person
I ever met who’s lived in a trailer park. My stepdad’s a musician, and the lady who owned a bar
he played at owed him money, so we just wound up with this trailer. Don’t apologize. It’s very, um… Rockford Files. I know, I’m totally
strung out on television. Hey, Nina, thanks again. It was a pleasure meeting you. No problem. Next time Lisa needs
anything from the store, give me a call,
I’ll tell you which aisle. I’ll see you at school. – Bye.
– Bye. You sure you don’t need a ride? My mum’s picking me up. So… Guess you’re gonna go out
and get all grown up now, huh? Your mum would be sad
she was missing it. You’re getting really good
on those drums. Thanks. Danny, I’d like to take Watson
for a walk now. I’ll leave the door open for you. Thanks. Come here. Come on. Watson, come on. Shh! Watson! Watson! Watson, what is it? Watson! Watson! Watson! Lisa… Today you are a woman. – Hi.
– Hi. Why do you think the aliens
took all their stuff back? Well… What makes you think
they took it all? Ha ha ha! – Enjoy.
– Thank you. I hear this was quite a show. Oh, w- What do you want? I find I have a lot
of free time on my hands. Imagine that. How’s Becky? You want to have a conversation that doesn’t end up with me
coming over this table and stuffing my fist down your throat, you stay off of that subject! We’re not
enemies anymore, Tom. We’re on the same side. I’m a private citizen now. Our friends saw to that
when they took all our evidence. What do you want? You went from a sceptic
to a believer in a nanosecond. That happened months before
the Mojave Desert sightings. I want to know why. Maybe I just saw the light. What do you know
that you’re not telling? Say hello to your sister for me. Tell her I miss her. So, there was
a lot of excitement around here while I was away. I’m sorry I wasn’t here. I’m fine, really. Your Uncle Tom has
a lot of pretty weird ideas. You’re not starting to have
the same ideas, are you? What if I am? You come from a special family. Your father had an amazing mind. He could look at things
and figure them out. With people, too. He could see things
other people couldn’t see. There was a lot about him that… There was just a lot about him. Honey, your life is changing
because you’re growing up. You’re not being abducted
into a spaceship. You’re being “taken” into adulthood. Of the two, I’d say that’s far and away
the scarier proposition. Hi. For Austin, Texas, please. Yeah, the number for Tom Clarke. Thank you. How’s Pasadena? You’ve seen one genome,
you’ve seen ’em all. How’s Julie? You two still haven’t
gotten divorced? Mary got into Yale, huh? Thank you for that letter. I told you, they love me. Directed a play there
my senior year, won a couple of awards. Gave Harry Hamlin his first part. How the hell you been, man? Good. Really good. So, uh, what’s all this about? They said they’d tell us
when we got here. Probably some investigation
to find out how we lost a flying saucer. After 12 years, I think
it’s about something a little bit more current than that. This is Mission Control. Do you copy? Argonaut 1, come in. Argonaut 1, come in. Damn it. you guys.
where the hell are you? Mission Control.
this is Argonaut 1. What’s going on up there.
Argonaut? What do you mean. Houston? You’ve been off-line
2 hours and 20 minutes. Houston. our last transmission
was only four minutes ago. We were at coordinates- Oh. my God! About three weeks ago, we sent
a manned mission into space. This launch was unannounced. The purpose of this mission was to put certain
sensitive equipment into orbit. What sort of equipment? Do you remember a program
of President Reagan’s, the Strategic Defence lnitiative? Yeah. Star Wars. As you probably remember,
there were some questions about whether or not
this program was feasible. Before President Bush
revisits the project, we need to know that it’s viable. So what did you send up? A reactor? One of the drawbacks to getting
the program off its feet was finding
a compact power system that could put out enough kilowatts to power both particle beam weapons
and rail guns. You did! You put this thing into orbit, didn’t you? Our payload was highly classified. The capsule had been
in orbit for 14 hours. It was two hours away
from being in a position where the payload
was to be delivered. The astronauts went dark
for almost 21/2 hours. They disappeared. No contact. Nothing. Then they were back, clear as day. They had no idea they’d lost
21/2 hours of their lives. The payload? Gone. I guess
they didn’t want a reactor messing with whatever
they’ve got going on up there. This is a waste of time. The people in this room represent $286 billion a year
in defence spending. We need your help, gentlemen. Stop playing games
and tell us everything you know about whoever it is who’s out there
and what the hell they want. I assume you ladies and gentlemen
have all seen E. T. They’re nowhere near that nice. We are back, baby, we are back! I don’t think you get how big
what just happened here is. We are reinstated, fully funded,
blessed for as long as Bush is in. Probably after that! Would you mind
getting into this without me? I’m gonna keep
on the Tom Clarke thing. He keeps getting calls from someone
in Los Altos, California. The phone is registered
to a Danny Holding. I thought I’d run out there
and take a look. For a while, I thought
all this was a bluff. I thought you had something big, but you’ve been on this
Tom Clarke thing 12 years now, and the best you can do
is check his phone bill? Forget Tom Clarke, will you? I’ve looked at other things,
but it keeps coming back to him. The Clarke family, they matter. They’re the key to this. This is about your father, isn’t it? You’re just trying to finish
something he started. What exactly you trying
to atone for here? You might as well be looking
for Charlie Keys. You’re not gonna come in? I said good-bye
to your father 13 years ago. This is something
for you to do yourself. Dad? He isn’t me. He’s making me
from the picture in your head. He’s lying. What do you want from me?! Leave my family alone! Dad. Aah! They’re coming for you! We’ve lived here
for the last seven years. ERlC: “We” would be? Myself, my wife,
and my daughter. Do you rent, or do you own? Who rents a trailer? Are you interested in
this sort of thing? That’s my daughter’s. Well, it’s actually my stepdaughter. Is that important? Sure it’s important.
Everything’s important. Your stepdaughter? Yeah, from my wife’s
first marriage. She was married
to the brother of the guy who wrote
that book-Tom Clarke. Your wife’s first husband was… – Jack.
– Jack. Jack. That’s Lisa’s dad. We call him Jack, but I’ve heard
my wife refer to him as Jacob. Is this all part of a regular
census questionnaire? This is a follow-up, Mr Holding.
It can never hurt to follow up. Well, here she is now. This is my daughter Lisa.
This is Mister… Jones. Mr Jones from the Census Bureau. I’m very, very glad to meet you. Do you own any pets? Oh, come on. Pick up, pick up. Tom Clarke. Uncle Tom, it’s Lisa. Lisa! There’s a man here. I get a really
bad feeling about him. You said I should listen
to my feelings because they were from my dad. That’s right. You should. He says he’s from the Census Bureau,
asking Danny a lot of questions. In civics, we learned about the census.
It happens once every ten years. There’s not supposed to be
another one until 2000. What does he look like? Blondish hair… Shorter than you… Kind of old, like 40. He’s dangerous.
You have to get out of there. Right now? – Yeah. right now.
– Okay Do you remember our plan? Yes. Go to your friend Nina’s. I understand. I can be there by tomorrow night. ALLlE: My mum told me once that when you’re afraid
of something. what you want
more than anything else is to make it go away. You want your life back
to the way it was before you found out there was
something to be afraid of. You want to build a high wall
and live your old life behind it. But nothing ever stays the same. It’s not your old life at all. but your new life
with a wall around it. Your choice is not about going back
to the way things were. Uncle Tom, thanks for coming. Your choice is about hiding or about going right to the heart
of the thing that scares you. That was so awesome.
Schooled that guy. – Got the hands for it.
– All right, Charlie, see you. – Good night, Charlie.
– See you, Charlie. See you guys tomorrow. It’s homey. A person starting college,
a life of their own, they need homey. Homey. I kinda like it. How much? I’ll give your mum a call
and let her know we got you settled, but I don’t want you calling her
or anybody else for quite a while. Tell me about these people,
why they’re looking for me. The man that came into your house,
his name was Eric Crawford. His father was an army colonel. His name was Owen Crawford. And he came after your father… came after Jacob. Your Aunt Becky and I fooled him into thinking
that Jake was dead, but I guess that Eric figured it out. But why was Owen Crawford
looking for my dad? This has to do with
the things you write about. See? You already knew. You knew the first time
you called me. And you said one day,
you’d explain it all. Yeah, well…I think you’ve had
enough excitement for one day. Don’t you? Listen, if you ever need me,
this is what I want you to do. I want you to
take out a personal ad in the national edition
of the New York Times and have it say, “Drummer seeking gig with… Texas country band.” You’re young. You could still develop
decent taste in music. Listen. I know. But you’re gonna be okay. Okay. Our first date, your dad
and I went for hot dogs. You know, your dad
never kept his own medals. I don’t think he ever went
to collect them. But he carried your grandfather’s
with him every day of his life. They were in his pockets
when he died. Your grandfather was a hero, Charlie,
just like your dad. How’s your job? I like teaching.
I think I’m pretty good. I’m sure you are. What’s this? That is a picture of your father. He must be about eight. This guy with him is his stepdad. Your father
used to talk about this. It was the most scared
he’d ever been in his life. Yeah, yeah. This is definitely that. What? Well, his stepdad
took him to a carnival, one of those travelling kind
they set up in vacant lots. Some games, some rides,
that sort of thing. Those rides,
they can be pretty scary. They spin you around, turn you upside down, drop the floor
out from underneath you. But none of that
scared your father, uh-uh. It was the carnies… The guys who ran the rides. He said there was
something about them that just gave him the creeps. Well, like this guy. I guess if you were eight,
he’d seem pretty creepy, huh? What was wrong with dad? He had a- He had a brain disorder. Made him believe certain things. What kind of things? He’s dead now. Do you really want
to remember this part of him? I want whatever I can get. He believed he’d been taken… by aliens. Lots of times. And the men? The people
we were hiding from? – I guess they believed that, too.
– How about you? I don’t know, sweetie.
I don’t know what I believe. Your dad said once they were
like his guardian angels. He thought
they were protecting him? No, he thought
they wanted him for something. He believed they had saved him
from dying in Vietnam. I think, in the end, he thought
they were coming after you. They have come for me. More than once. That’s why he screamed
the last time he saw me. He could see that
they were already taking me. If you were eight, yeah,
maybe this would scare you. But you know what, mum? None of this scares me anymore. Now it just makes me mad. If they come again,
I’m not going without a fight, and if that lands me
in some hospital room, staring out some window, screaming,
then that’s what it does. What was he like, my grandfather? I didn’t really know him that well. He kind of frightened me. How come? He was always nice to me. I-I don’t know. I guess he just
terrified your father so much. All your father
ever wanted from that man was a pat on the back. It’s amazing how not getting
something so simple can do so much. When did you get in? Night before last. I had a few days
before fall quarter starts. Good to have you home. I’m sorry, honey. He’s got a lot on his mind. Why don’t you leave him? What? Leave, as in pack your bags,
walk out the door, and don’t come back. It’s not as simple as that. Yes, it is.
He’s thoughtless, insensitive. If he can still get it up,
he’s doubtless unfaithful. Honey- You know it’s true. I have my compensations. I have you. So move to New Haven. You’ll have more of me
and less of him. I can set you up with my
“Perspectives on Science” professor. He’s very cute. You’re terrible. It’s in the blood. Do you think I look
anything like him? “Home is the sailor
home from the sea and the hunter
home from the hill.” I’ve got something
important to tell you. It can keep. I’ve got
earth-shattering news. You ready? You wanna sit down or… What’s your news? I was wrong. “About what?” you ask. “It’s like this,” I answer. I take all the money
the generals threw at us, and I tell my guys,
“Build me something that will pick up the impulse signals
from those implants”- The signals that were being
amplified by that transformer. The transformer I said was the body
we had stored at Groom Lake. Y-Yes. They build the thing. They turn it on. Voilà! Lights up
like a Christmas tree. “Now, why does this
make me wrong?” you ask. Okay. These signals are big
and bad and boosted. Somewhere on this planet,
there’s still a transmitter going strong, as if when they grabbed all their stuff,
they deliberately left it behind. What does this give us? What I always said it would. We can track any implant,
anytime, anywhere. Look at this. Find Alan for me, will you? Remember that chip we took
out of the girl from Cleveland? We put it into the head
of a guy named Alan. Works for the Department
of the Interior. – Thinks he went in for a root canal.
– Found him, sir. Get him. Motel 6. May I speak
with Mr Alan Stewart? One moment. Hello? – Mr Stewart?
– Yes. Hold for Dr Lamarr. Who’s on the phone? Quiet. It’s Dr Lamarr. Just wanted to check
on your root canal. Is that your wife?! How does she know
where you are? I-I’m fine. Dr Lamarr.
how did you find me? Mr Stewart, I’m a dentist.
That’s my job. If you’re gonna talk to her. what’s the point
of being here with me? I have to go.
I’ve got a patient in the chair. You understand. I still don’t understand
how this helps us. Oh, yeah. This sea of blinking lights, our very own galaxy
of abductees. How do we know who goes
with each blinking light? Exactly. We cross-reference
known abductees, their movements, et cetera,
with the implant data. We name them
and eliminate them. That leaves
unidentified abductees. If there’s someone we’re looking for,
we feed in everything we can- data from field agents,
all of that-compare patterns. Amazing what you can do
with a modern computer and a couple of billion dollars
in taxpayers’ money. Can you find Charlie Keys? Yeah. How would you like to
find somebody else? You kinda suck. Do you think you can unsuck
by a week from Wednesday? We’ve got a gig
at the O.K. Hotel. I’m in the band? No one else answered the ad. No way, man! Didn’t really mean it. About you sucking. You’re no worse
than the rest of us. Thanks, I guess. Just felt kinda bad, like I hurt
your feelings or something. I’m tougher than that. First time away from home? Yeah. I remember the first time
I slept on my own in my new apartment. When I woke up. it took me a minute
to remember where I was. I’m lying there thinking
how weird it is. Yesterday. when I woke up.
everything was normal. Today. it’s gonna be
different forever. That’s exactly
what happened to me. I expect to wake up any minute
and be back in my old room… “It was all just a dream.” Thanks for being so nice. It makes all of this a little less heavy. Anytime. No, you are not gonna take me! You are not gonna take me again! You get the hell away from me! Get the hell away from me! It’s open. What are you doing? Sorry, Naomi. I’m sorry. Nothing. Sorry. This is how you’re spending
your leave of absence? Sitting in the dark, reading, with a baseball bat by the door
in case anyone drops by? I just needed
a little time by myself. I’ve been principal at Lincoln
for ten years, and I taught there before that. Charlie, you’re
the best teacher I’ve ever seen. I’m not gonna lose you
without a fight. What is all this? That’s nothing. “The Alien Agenda: What
The Abductions Really Mean”? Compendium of Alien Races? “Adopt An Alien”? What is this all about? Oh, my God. You think you’ve been
abducted by aliens. Do you have any idea
how many people say that they’ve
been abducted every year? Charlie… People believe in those things because they have to
believe in something. If that’s all it is, how come
all the stories are so similar? Because we see the same movies, we read the same books… They’ve been taking me
since I was nine. The last time they took me
was only six weeks ago. They came into this house,
and they took me. I tried to fight back.
I kicked and I hit and I bit. It did nothing! They ripped me right through
the living room wall! No! You are not
gonna take me ever again! You’re not gonna take me! You’re not! Charlie. There’s no reason at all
why you should believe me. So I’m gonna get proof, and I’m gonna show you
and anyone else who will listen that I’m not crazy. Okay, Charlie. Okay. It took us almost two months
before we found her. Something wrong with your system? No, the system’s fine. She just doesn’t have an implant. Why would she?
She’s Jacob Clarke’s daughter. What do you do for an amputee? You build them a fake hand. From their point of view,
we’d be psychic amputees. We’re missing something
they take for granted. So what did they give us? Implants. They’ve given us electronic versions
of what they have biologically. Pull up the images
of the brain tissue samples we took from that fire in Alaska. Spectrographic analysis turned up
some weird trace compounds. Colour code for density threshold. This sample comes
from the brain of that twin who died in the fire with your brother. The twins were failed attempts
at crossbreeding, but we worked from the assumption
their cellular structure is almost identical to Lisa’s. Good. Now zoom out. The tissue is doing double duty- spirals of neurons acting as antennae. We found her. She was just broadcasting
on another frequency. Hey, dude! Bye. Hey, Lisa, how you doing? We got so much to talk about. Don’t stand there-
do something! Unh! The national edition
of the New York Times. please. I’d like to place an ad
in the personals. I never told anyone
about your father. I didn’t put it in any of my books. But when Eric Crawford
came after you, I should have told you. I don’t know if
I would have believed you. So… This Crawford
came after me because I’m… One-quarter alien? Does make you pretty interesting. Wow. From what I have experienced, and I’m only talking
about what I’ve seen… They don’t want to hurt anybody. They saved you. They walked you home. Your father was
very important to them. And I guess that you are, too. I think I know why. These are
the matched repeaters. We started with anyone
who had been taken more than once. We noticed there was a subset- People repeatedly taken
on the same day as others. We found Charlie Keys. Let’s assume
he’s part of pair number 55. Why 55? Numbers thing.
Go with me for a moment. Charlie’s last abduction, right after
we started tracking him, came on September 8th. If we backdate Lisa’s pregnancy, we can give her a conception date
of September 8th. They’re breeding him
with a girl who’s… One-quarter alien already.
It’s beautiful, isn’t it? I’m not quite getting it. That’s ’cause you don’t have my years of experience
in the private sector. See, in the biotech world, most of our research
goes into recessive traits- things we can breed out
of a species or into it. What do we know
about the Keys family? The grandfather, Russell,
is a bomber pilot. His son is a Vietnam vet
and rescue worker. These men are strong,
brave, extremely resilient. One other thing- When they’re taken, they fight back. And the Clarkes-
Jacob, he could do things. My father was terrified of him. But he was physically weak. In a way, he was
no more suited to survive than those mutant brothers
in the Alaskan woods. And Lisa… And Lisa, she doesn’t seem to have
inherited her father’s gifts or his physical weakness. She seems to be
nothing more than a carrier. – You ever cook with tarragon?
– Hmm? It’s a very strong spice. One pinch is all you need. Otherwise, it overpowers
the dish you’re making. Genetics is a lot like cooking-
little pinch of this, little more of that. But what are they cooking? That, my son and heir, is one hell of a whopper, isn’t it? Super weapon or saviour,
take your pick. ALLlE: Sometimes the best way
to move into the unknown is to take familiar steps. small steps. to do ordinary things
to deal with something that is in no way ordinary. We’re always going
someplace new. all the time. Familiar things just let us pretend that we aren’t moving
into unfamiliar territory. You take those small. familiar steps. and you try to be honest. not to live
as if nothing had changed. but still to go on with your life. But there are times
when what you need is a piece
of how things used to be. Aah! Mum! Nina! This guitar player, Tony… I was auditioning for his band. I don’t think I like this guitar player. I went back
to the rehearsal studio the next day to see him. He’d left for L.A. Prick. No, that’s not what I mean at all. He’d left for L.A. right from
the rehearsal studio that night. A friend of his came by and got him. He hadn’t
followed me home at all. Well, you went home
with somebody. No, I didn’t. Honey, come home. The people you were hiding from, the same people who were
looking for your father, Tom says they know
where you are. They’re not gonna bother me. Because beings from another world
are looking out for you? Yes, mum. That’s exactly why. You weren’t here. You didn’t see
what happened to me. Mum, I- Mum. This is gonna be all right.
I know it. I can feel it. You can, can’t you? You’re your father’s daughter.
You know that. Sooner or later, you two are gonna have to
tell me what this is all about. It started when I was eight. I used to have these… at the time,
I thought they were dreams. There was always
the same guy… What’s he saying? “The craft are leaving.” This man is a farmer
in Tierra Del Fuego. He’s reported sightings
for the past eight years. We think many of the craft
stay out of sight around the Antarctic. One day, two weeks ago,
he sees the ships, sky full of them, all above his field,
middle of the day. Then that’s it.
Hasn’t seen ’em since. Woman from Siberia
has a similar story. And Norway, Alaska,
Zanzibar, Australia. 144 multi-witness, confirmable reports
from all over the world. How long has this
been going on? About six weeks now. One big rush, then zilch. Absolutely no activity.
Not one sighting. Nothing. Six weeks, and you
never mentioned this to me? – I’m mentioning it now.
– This is still my project. Abso-friggin’- lutely. Eric, this is me, Chet. We’ve been
through the wars, buddy. I was just giving you
a little space, Ietting you come to terms
with your divorce and all. How you liking
the single life, by the way? What do you think this means? It’s the calm. The calm? Yeah. The one that comes
before the storm. Speculation continues
in the Pacific Northwest over the many reports
of lights in the sky. The government will neither
confirm nor deny the rumours… They’re beautiful. …of secret aircraft being tested as part of a new
Strategic Defence Initiative recently funded by Congress… It’s gonna be okay. Is it? Definitely. What if there’s
something wrong with the baby? Honey, really. It’s gonna be great. No, it’s not that. I think my water just broke. You’re gonna be all right. Yeah. Less than a minute apart. Will you call my mum? Good, here’s the general. Gentlemen. General. We feed directly off
the Cheyenne Mountain computer. This grid shows the actions of every known
man- made object in space- screws from
a 1984 shuttle mission, a screwdriver
the Russians dropped off Mir. and thousands-
thousands-of satellites. You didn’t bring us up
from Washington to see screws. We’ve had unidentifieds before,
but nothing like this. Look. We eliminate
the ones we’ve I.D.’d, and we’re left with these. Earlier tonight, there were
hundreds of new objects. We thought
the system had gone down. And then the objects… coalesced. That’s the only way
I know how to explain it. There were lots of little ones, and now there’s one
very, very big one. You’d better have
a good cover story, General. No one’s gonna believe
this is marsh gas. – That’s right, a little more.
– There you go. Can you scootch up a little? What do you have
in the way of drugs? See if the doctor’s available. The mother’s b.p. is high. You’ll feel better
in a couple of minutes. She’s nine centimetres. Stop pushing. I can’t. Listen to me, you have to stop. We have to bring
your blood pressure down before you can have this baby. Get Dr Catrell.
You’ll have to step out. It’s a slight complication. – What’s going on?
– You have to go now! Sir, it’s coming down. Surface velocity,
388.1 meters per second at 249.4 degrees local. Altitude, – 75.2 meters per second. Deinclination
and speed on this thing- they’re impossible. It’s over Seattle
and coming down fast. Flash alert to ClNC-NORAD.
Move to Defcon 2. If it’s what I think it is,
none of that’ll matter. Her blood pressure’s
200 over 100. She’s had two seizures.
There’s protein in her urine. She’s eclamptic.
Let’s stabilize her. Two grams magnesium,
five milligrams hydralazine. Altitude, – 37.0 meters per second. 54.4 at 231.2, alt – 33.6. 52.8 at 229.0, alt – 30.1. What’s happening to you
is called eclampsia, but we’ve treated your seizures, and we’re bringing down
your blood pressure. Why is this happening? 52.8 at 229.0, alt – 30.1. 51.2 at 227.8, alt – 26.7. It’s slowing down. It’s levelling out. – She’s stabilizing.
– Okay, very nice. – No sign of foetal distress.
– Here comes another contraction. If you can work with me,
we can bring this baby into the world
without a C-section, okay? – Yeah.
– Okay. We’re gonna try some pushing. 1…2…3…and push! Push, push, push, push! Okay, good girl. Stop. Nice job, Lisa. Vitals? B.P ‘. s down to 120.
She’s stabilizing. Very nice. We’re gonna
do it again, Lisa, okay? 30.6 meters per second
at 213.8 degrees local. Altitude, – 9.3 meters per second. Great. Let’s just wait
for another contraction. Just a second, and we’ll go again. Ready? On three.
1…2…3…push! Push, push, push, push. – Stop!
– Vitals still stable. Way to go, Lisa! Estimated hover point- 47-39-14 north,
122- 18- 34 west. You’re almost there.
Just a few more pushes, okay? Oh, my God. My God! Why is there so much blood? It’s all right. Doctor, there’s foetal distress. I’m taking this baby now. Forceps. Prep suction. She’s in D.I.C. She’s bleeding out! Hurry up! Hurry up! We’re losing the baby, too. 25.2 at 211.0, alt – 4.9. It-it stopped! It’s disappeared. What? It’s gone. It can’t be gone. We have the mother’s heartbeat. Baby is stabilizing. She’s stopped bleeding. I want a teal-amber search,
code red, right now. Go. Find the damn thing. Go! Hey. You’re not supposed to
be here, you know. You were bleeding to death. What happened? The bleeding stopped. Nobody knows why. I told you they’d look over you. My baby? She’s beautiful. Seven pounds, three ounces.
Perfect little baby girl. Oh… hi. NlNA: Do you know
what you’re gonna name her? Allison. Allie. Her name is Allie. Hey there, Allie. ALLlE: My mum says that life
is like a roller-coaster ride. There are ups and downs. there are big scares and slow builds and places where it levels out. The only difference
with this roller coaster is that every time it stops. you get off in someplace
totally different from where you got on. How’s your mother? She’s fine. She does not send you her love. Thanks for coming. You said it was important. Your grandfather found this
in Pine Lodge, New Mexico. He found it at a crash site. So it’s all true. What does it say? No one’s been able
to translate it. Maybe it’s a grocery list. He gave it to you? Your father? Left it for me. I found it after he died. And there was a note. My father and I… We weren’t very close. Well, he left this for you. He must have changed his mind. My brother died. And your father just after that. Before he died, I think my father
got a better look at me. What does Uncle Chet
say about this? Dr Wakeman hasn’t seen it. Why are you
showing it to me now? There’s a great deal of power that comes with the kind
of knowledge I’m privy to. I anticipate change. I want you to join me
in the program, Mary. This is something that
shouldn’t go outside the family. Hello, Thrillseekers. Look at you, little Mary,
all grown up and beautiful! How’s the quest
for the Nobel Prize coming? I got very close on a genomic
mismatch scanning technique. “Close” like “should Miss America
fail to fulfil her duties” close? Close as in Patrick Brown
got there first. You’re just a grad student.
You’ll get there. Lisa had her baby. Little girl. Are we going to try to pick her up? What would be the point in that? God! I’ve been wanting to do this
since you were 13. Me, too. Why don’t you pick up the baby? You don’t waste any time, do you? She’s clearly important. In fact, I’d say
she’s the point of all this. Definitely. – So pick her up.
– Take her. No, they’d just take her back. They’re way better at that
than we are. So what are we gonna do? We watch and wait. And we figure out a way
to take her that will work. Watch and wait. That sounds a lot like my father. I’m nothing like your father! I have a theory about who she is. You want to hear it? Evolution tends to eliminate, or at least, uh… Subjugate emotion. The limbic brain is still down there. But it’s way… Down… under. Why we don’t run through
the streets killing people- at least most of us. Imagine their abilities combined with the energy
of our strong emotion. They’d be cherry bombs… she’d be a nuclear explosion. Ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you
White Shadow. White Shadow comes to us
after spending the last three years jumping through a flaming hoop
at a sea show in Florida. Hopefully, over time, as we come to know and understand
these creatures a little better, we’ll become more caring
and compassionate in our behaviour towards them. Here at the aquarium,
it is our hope that we can bring you
that one step closer to truly knowing another species. Any questions? Once the dolphin’s been in captivity, is it possible to return the animal
to its native environment? Not in most cases, although it depends on how long
the animal has been away and under what conditions it was kept, but in most cases,
once an animal has been taken, there’s little hope
of an uneventful return. What’s the matter with them? I remember the first time
that I ever saw dolphins. I was three. It was the first time in my life I can remember knowing
that something was beautiful… and it was the first time
I had the feeling there was something about me that was different
from everybody else.www.tvsubtitles.net
