Another Time (2018) - full transcript

Just because a journey leads you somewhere you didn't expect, doesn't mean you ended up in the wrong place.

the terrestrial planets

have similar

there are also
distinct differences...

charged ions and electrons that

become trapped in
the earth's magnetic field

form ion lakes
in the upper region

of the atmosphere.

This is known as
the Ionosphere.

When we're looking
up at the stars in the sky,

we are actually
looking into the past.

We know that light
travels at about

300 million
meters per second.

While that is certainly
fast by normal standards,

in the context of
the size of the universe...
disturbances may disrupt radio

they also create

a shower of incoming
energetic particles...

Solution describes space-time...

You know, I think
the more important question

we should be asking
is "what is time?"

Could life
exist on other planets

in our solar system?

Is Mars the most likely
place for it to develop?

Dr. Harold Grindstaff

in order to answer
that question

we may want to look
a bit further out.

As we travel
past the terrestrial planets

in our solar system,
we reach the Jovian planets,

Jupiter, Saturn,
Uranus, and Neptune.

These planets are
massive in size...

Eric, my man, you're
looking good this morning.

What can I do
for you, Ben?

It's official.
Practor Financial is now ours.

All right!
Well, congratulations.

That's huge.

And you are in luck,
my friend.

I'm giving you first
pick of the new clients.


What's the catch?

Aw, catch?

Come on, Eric,
don't be so cynical.

Don't bullshit me, Ben.
I know how you operate.

What's the catch?

Okay, it's
really quite simple.

Yes, it's a boutique

but their clientele are
mostly the elderly type.

You know, the kind
who don't know what to do

with their money,
so they hand it over to

the portfolio manager
to manage until it's time

to pass it down to the kids.
The best type.

That's great.
That sounds wonderful.

What are you
not telling me?

I just need you to spend
a couple of weeks with...

No, no, no,
hell, no!

You are not doing
that shit to me again, okay?

Why do I always
have to be the one

to take the new
acquisitions passdowns?

You know the last guy,
he pestered me non-stop

to join his fucking
"Dungeons & Dragons" group.

Okay? I had to
spend two weekends,

two weekends, Ben,
in some guy's ratty-ass

apartment with a bunch
of his loser-ass friends

who look like Milt from
"Office Space," all right?

They're arguing over whether,
you know, a dwarf or an elf

makes a better cleric. I'm not
doing that shit again, okay?

Okay, okay,
This time the "he" is a "she"

and they don't play
"Dungeons & Dragons."

What are you doing?

Don't... not the numbers.

Do you have any idea
what two weeks is to me?

Let me tell
you something,

I bring home $7,000
a week in commissions.

That's not including
salary, all right?

You know how much money
that is to this firm?

Now you want me to
sift through

some worthless client's
portfolio under the guise

that you're actually
doing me a favor, right?

You and I both know
there's one client

in there,
maybe two if we're lucky,

that's actually worth
my time to manage.

This is intern work, Ben,

not something for
your best employee.

You know, maybe I've failed to
properly explain to you

the boss-employee

I tell you what to do,
and you do it.

It's really that simple.

Okay, so that's how
we're gonna play this, right?

You should take notes.

Although it may seem to
you that I got the job of

senior vice president
of accounts based solely

on my dashing good looks,
I actually knew when to

shut the fuck up
and do what I was told.

Okay, no, I get it, you want me to be
a team player, I'll be a team player.

- That's all I'm asking.
- All right.

Hey, so, I've
been thinking, right?

You should keep
that up, Kal.

People appreciate
a thinking man.

Oh, you will appreciate it.

So there are seven billion
people in this world,

and every two seconds,
somebody dies.

That means in 116 years,

everyone that's alive right
now will be gone!

That's 2129, man.
That is coming fast.

Yeah, yeah. You figured
that whole thing out

while you were
waiting for me?

Are you kidding me?
That's some extreme math.

It took me
the entire day.

Only Kal doesn't
work on Mondays.

What's with you?

I'm sorry, my boss has got another
one of his brilliant ideas.

We're taking clients from a
smaller firm so he's got this...

this chick that's
gonna come in and,

I don't know,
teach me how to cater

to their upper echelon's
elderly, I guess?

I don't know.

Listen to you, man.

You're like the epitome
of white people problems.

I'm a rich white male.
What do you expect?

Well, hey,
Tom Hanks was a rich white male

and he figured out a way
to connect with the common folk.

Yeah, but he was retarded.

Whoa! You would
lose your mind too

if you were on that
island for that long.

- Oh, you're talking "Castaway".
- Yes!

And you know Forrest Gump
was not retarded, either.

I learned more
from that man

than I ever did
in any school.

Yeah, I actually believe that,

but maybe you should have
paid more attention

and you could've figured out
that 2129 thing

before it was too late.

I don't even know why you're
still working at that job.

I mean, I always hear you
complaining about it.

I don't know. I mean,
it pays well, I like money.

You like money so
much you never spend it?

What are you
talking about?

I spend money
all the time.

Besides, it's better to have it
and not need it

than need it
and not have it.

Okay, you made more
money this year

than I'll probably ever make
in my entire lifetime.

- Probably.
- Yet you live in a small-ass apartment,

you own one car, you never
come to Magic Mountain...

The apartment is nice and who
needs more than one car?

Besides, like I said,
I'm saving it, you know?

You never know when
you might need it.

It's from the lady.

All right, bring it in here.
What do you think?

Well, she was already
here when I got here...


...cute, alone,
easy pickings, right?

Check out the wedding ring.

There's always more
than meets the eye, man.

You want
the real report?

Recent divorcee,
can't quite seem

to let it go...
tch, tch, tch.

You're amazing,

I'm gonna go see
if you're right.

- Don't say I didn't warn you.
- All right.

Dude, what
happened out there?

She was, like,
all over you.

She bored me.

Bored you? Sheesh,
I wish I could be bored

by someone who
looks like that.

Edwin Hubble used
spectral shifts in the galaxy

to determine that the universe
is constantly expanding.

Hubble's Law raises some
interesting questions.

If galaxies are in fact

receding from us
in all directions,

does that mean that we are

at the center
of the universe?

Eric, allow me to
introduce you to...

Julia Practor,
nice to meet you.

Eric Laziter, team player.

Well, I'll let you
two get acquainted.

So what I was thinking
is we could get started off...

You know what we could do is
just do this thing the easy way.

Just pile everything I'm gonna
need right here on the desk.

I'll just take care of
it all on my own,

if that's okay with you.

Hey, that wasn't
part of the deal.

I was very clear with Ben about what
the turnover processes would entail.

Is this going
to be a problem?

No, not at all.

Let's dig in. Go ahead and have a seat.
We'll do this together.

So, um, where do you
want to get started?

Did you make a note on there about
sticking with market neutral...

I got it, yeah.

Okay, 'cause I'm just trying to make
sure that we keep everything...

I'm very good at my job,
I got it. I know what I'm doing.

Just keep moving.

You know what?

Actually, it's
getting really late.

Um, why don't we just
just pick this back up

in the morning?

Or we could take
a combat nap

in the break room.

That was a joke.

Uh, wow,
you don't like me, do you?

I don't know you.

If you really want
to understand the planets

in our solar system,
you first need to

look at what different
types of planets exist.

Okay, so you've got
terrestrial planets, right?

Those are planets
that share physical

and chemical characteristics
with our own planet.

And these planets with these
specific characteristics,

okay, you've got Venus, Mars,
Mercury, and, of course, Earth.

Oh, uh, hold on. Actually we haven't
spoken about Jackson McHale yet.

Uh, Jackson McHale,
got him.

Or Byron Evans,
Judith Szymankowicz,

the Emorys.

Got him, got her,
and I got them.

Okay, stop, all right?
This isn't fair.

This is
important to me.

It was part of the deal, we would
talk about every client individually

because you're not going to pick
up on the subtleties on your own.

Okay, all right.

Jackson McHale, all right,

64 years old,
$780,000 net worth,

largest stock holding
is Intel,

and his hobbies include
stamp collecting,

fishing, and spending time
with his grandkids, all right?

Byron Evans...
Byron Evans is a character.

74 years young,
likes the ponies,

horse racing,
and fast women.

Maybe that's why
he's not worth so much.

Judith Szymankowicz.

This woman,
$600K net worth, right?

Clearly not giving her
proper guidance

because in the 12 years that
she's been with your company,

she's only seen a 5.7%
return on her investment.

I like to think I could have at
least come close to doubling that.

And then we have
the Emorys, right?

Robert, the patriarch, retired
after 42 years at Raytheon,

made a fortune in dotcoms,

got out before
the bubble burst,

got two kids, both sons,
loves them both.

Mitch owns a small chain
of seafood restaurants

in San Diego County
and Hal...

is a real estate agent
in San Luis Obispo.

Good family.
What else is there to know?

I'm impressed...

Well, I worked from
home last night.

It's not
that big of a deal.

...with your ability to properly
pronounce "Szymankowicz."

Did I?

I'm kidding. It's, uh...
wow, that's really good work.

Thank you.

...of the stars in our galaxy.

We can see that our
galaxy contains more mass

than is accounted for
by our stars and gasses.

So what is this mysterious
invisible mass...

Hey, man.

Hey, buddy.
You busy?

I am, a little bit, yeah.

We are, uh, sort of
up to our ears

in this, uh, business acquisition thing.
What's going on?

Well, you know, I'm just calling
'cause I was just making sure

we're still on
tonight for beers!

Ah, you know what?
I'm gonna have to

pull the ripcord
on that thing, buddy.

Um, I got a lot of work to do.

Julia and I are getting started
early tomorrow.

Wait, "Julia and I"?

Whoa. This girl is cute,
isn't she?

Muy caliente.

All right, buddy.
You have a good night.

Dark matter exists
in two forms:

ordinary matter
and exotic matter.

The ordinary matter
is referred to

by its acronym,

for Massive Compact
Halo Objects..

Hey, uh, change of plans.

I'm gonna need these clients
done a little bit sooner.

Okay, yeah, no,
how much sooner?

End of the week.

SEC quarterly review
got moved up a little bit.

I need to have
these things done

before they show up.

Just get it done.

Work overtime
if you have to,

but I need it by Friday.

Looks like it's going to
be another long night.

Yeah, what else is new?

You hungry?


Sound good?

Excellent idea.

You know, there's this
really cool thing,

you can turn
those into a plate.

But if you're gonna just
slurp it out of the box,

let me at least
grab you a fork.

Fork? You don't eat
Chinese with a fork,

you use chopsticks.

Why would I
use chopsticks?

It's an
inferior utensil.

I have a far superior one
here in the kitchen.

Because that's
just the way it is.

Says who?

That'd be like
a caveman using

sticks and stones
to start a fire

when he's got a
lighter in his pocket.

Oh, come on. Where's your
spirit of tradition?

I think tradition is for
those who live in the past.

Oh, is it? Those who don't study
history are doomed to repeat it.

Yeah, but they wouldn't
know it, right,

because they hadn't
studied it to begin with,

so to them it's a brand-new
and exciting future.

Oh, you do have an answer
for everything, don't you?

You say it like
it's a bad thing.

No one likes
a Johnny Know-it-All.

Besides, you're not as smart
as you think you are.

Ouch, that hurts me.

Just calling it
like I see it.

If you were really smart,

you'd be doing something
more with your life.

I don't know, I mean I...
poor kid from the Midwest,

grew up in poverty
and now here I am,

a successful account manager
making high six figures a year.

I'd say that's something.

Perhaps, if money alone is how
success is defined, but it's not.

At least not in my world,
it's not.

Well, how do you
define success?

By the kind of impact
you make on the world.

Yeah, I help people plan for retirement.
That's impactful.

You help rich people
get richer.

It's like teaching fish
how to swim.

It's pretty low impact,

especially when you are capable
of so much more.

Okay, what do you mean?

You are incredibly

but I have seen
your type before.

You're smarter
than everybody else,

so you get by
with minimal effort.

But you will never reach your
full potential living like that.

I mean, you could really have
a real impact on society.

You could be a doctor
curing disease,

or a scientist inventing
new technology or...

An astronaut.


I always wanted to be an
astronaut when I was a kid,

so I thought I would...

grow up to be...

an astronaut.

I never told
anyone that before.

So why didn't you?

Because I...

I don't know.

I don't know.

You know, it's not too late
to do something great.

Don't be afraid to listen to what
the universe is telling you.

All right, you are not
gonna believe this,

but we are done.

- Really?
- With time to spare. Yup.

Your boss will be excited.

Maybe he'll give you a bonus.

No, he's gonna call it
the price of admission

and tell me that I'm lucky
to be working here.

Ah, but that guy loves you
in a way

he's not
ready to deal with.

That just sounds creepy.

You're saying gay people
creep you out?

No, of course not.
Why would I say that?

Wait, are you saying
that you think Ben is gay?

No, just trying to make
you uncomfortable for a second.

All right.

- You are evil.
- Devilishly.

All right, come on, I'll buy you
an ice cream to celebrate.

Oh, okay.

- Do you eat ice cream?
- Yeah.

- All right, come on.
- Can I have this?

Uh, no,
it's not your fault.

You didn't know.
How could you have?

No way of knowing.

You a cone eater?

- I'm not. Yeah, I'll get rid of those.
- I'm good.

To tell you the truth,
the worst part about it

was, uh,
the money, you know?

I mean, they're
in a better place now

and they're happy, but..

What, you mean
the funeral expenses?

No. No, no,
they're not dead.

I bought them tickets
on the "Ocean World" liner.

They're probably
more alive than I am.

That is not funny.

Well, you're not the only one
who enjoys a little sarcasm.

So what's
next for you?

What are you
planning on doing?

What's your next move?

Well, I want to
give back, you know?

I mean, between the
buyout and my inheritance,

- I am set for life.
- Really?

And so that means
I can do what I want

when I want and I want
that "what" to matter.

Yeah, that makes sense.
I mean...

I mean, exactly what
are you planning on doing?

Like, how are you going
to change the world?

You know, you strike me
as that kind of person

who wants
to change the world.

You gonna save
the whales, or what?

Well, I guess I'm not
so much of a whale girl

as I am a humanitarian.

I don't know..
you watch the news and

you see these
horrible things

and just..
it makes you think.

We've really got it
good here in the USA.

They don't even show
you the worst stuff.

Yeah, no,
you're probably right.

So, what, you want
to expose the truth?

I want to help those who
can't help themselves.

I don't know, maybe teach
kids or build libraries,

dig water wells.

I don't know.

It's like you said,

there's a lot of
problems in the world.

One girl can't fix them all.

I don't know about that.

I know I believe in you.

I do.

I do, and, um...'ve inspired me.

You have. Um...

maybe it's time for me
to do something great.

You should have
become an astronaut,

see how big
this world really is.

You know, there are
over 300 billion stars

in the Milky Way,

and all we can do is
sit here and observe.

You know, if you keep
looking at the world

through a filter,

you're never going
to see its true beauty.

If you want to be
an astronaut, do it.

Sometimes life
gives you moments,

and if you don't leap
at the opportunity,

you lose them forever.

I'm sorry.
I have to go.

Have to g...
Julia. Julia!

So she just left?
After ice cream?

Hmm... ice cream,
philosophy, romance.

Well, you gave her the deadly
combo, boom, boom, boom!

Yeah, it's
probably for the best.

What do you mean?

Why do you even care, bro?
Look at you.

You're a tall,
good-looking dude.

You could probably have
any girl in this bar.

Here's one, for example.

Just pick one out,
dust yourself off,

and move on to the next one.

I don't want
the next one,

you understand?
I want this one.

No, you only think
you want this one.

It's called Psychology 101,
my friend.

You two were forced
to spend an inordinate

amount of time together
in such a brief period.

Of course it's
gonna be natural

for a certain level
of attraction to develop.

But after time, this is all
gonna just pass away, pshhh.

Okay, Freud, no, seriously,
I'm telling you,

I know what
I'm talking about, okay?

The energy was different.

It's hard to explain.
It's just different.

Okay, you've convinced me.

Wait, what?

No, but I can see
that you've convinced yourself

so I'm just trying
to be supportive.

Okay, so what do I do now?

I think you should take
another crack at her.

I mean, who knows, maybe
she's sitting in some bar

on the other side
of town right now

having this exact same

with her best friend
named Kallie.

That's right.

Wait, she's got a best
friend named Kallie?

Well, I like
to think that everyone

has a best friend named Kal,

or Kallie if it's a girl,

although if she's a tomboy,

they'll call her "Kal"
for short.

What's this?

It's a peace offering.

So you can always see
the entirety of the world.

It's stupid.

No, it's great.
Thank you.

Look, Eric, I need
to apologize...

It's my fault. Listen, I got
caught up in the moment,

and I did something
I shouldn't have done.

It just felt... right.

No, listen,
I need to apologize because

I should have told you
that I had a boyfriend,

a fiancé, actually.

Oh. Yeah, maybe
you should have mentioned that.

You don't, uh...
you don't wear a ring.

Yeah, it's being sized.

Um, okay...
a fiancé since when?

2008. Well, not
engaged since then,

but that's when we met.

Our first date
was actually

the opening night
of "Twilight".

And you're still with him?

I was actually sitting
on a park bench outside

the South Hills Mall
and this guy comes up to me

and he's like,
"Hey, I have this ticket

to the 7:05 showing
because I was going to take

my little sister
and she got sick.

Any chance you'd
want to go with me?"

Look, Eric, I don't
want to bore you with

all these
"you're a great guy,"

"you're going to find
the right girl" clichés.

But you really
are a great guy.

That's great.

I'm telling you, man,
it was a total disaster, okay?

I didn't even get
a word out and, boom,

she drops
that bomb on me.

What do I do?

Listen to the advice
I already gave you.

You gotta forget about her,
just let her be.


Wow, this girl's really
gotten to you, huh?

You know what?
The way I see it,

you only have two
options, okay?

One, you win her
the old fashioned way

with your words, or...

- I let her be.
- kill her boyfriend.

Kal, you crazy?


I'm not gonna kill
her boyfriend, Kal.

- You want me to?
- No!

Well, then...
you gotta go talk to her.

I don't know what
to say to her. I tried.

Jesus Christ, do I
have to do everything for you?

This whole thing's
got me fucked up.

Look at me right now.

Does this look
like a happy face?

Okay, look, if you are as
convinced as you say you are,

then you gotta communicate
that to her, man.

Say something honest,
from the heart.

You gotta lay it
all out there

and let the chips fall
where they may.

Just make sure
you stop short of

going all Affleck
in "Chasing Amy" on her.

Affleck got the girl.


Okay... okay.


- Hey.
- Hey.

Do you have a minute, maybe,
to go over something?

Yeah, yeah, what's up?

I don't know
how to put this, um...

Life is complicated, right?

It's full of surprises,
things you didn't see coming.

and, um,
you gotta make choices,

and there are
moments, right,

that are...
that are important.

Eric, what are
you trying to say?

Just bear with me, uh...

I'm falling
in love with you,

and I...
just hear me out.

There are over seven
billion people on this planet,

yet somehow, some way,
our paths managed to cross,

in the most unlikely event.

And I feel amazing
when I'm around you.

I feel like
I'm full of life, and happy,

like I have purpose,
and, um...

I'm sort of hoping
that you felt the same way.

If not, just a little bit
of you, and I feel like,

if you do,
that we owe it to ourselves

to explore that feeling
a little bit deeper.

I know it sounds crazy

but I'm sitting over there
and I'm waiting for you...

and I can't help
but think that, uh...

you and I were
meant to be together.

No, we weren't.

If the universe,
as you say,

had truly wanted us
to be together,

we would be together.

We would have met
at a different time,

but we didn't.

I love my fiancé.

Hey, babe.

Adam, hi, honey.

This is Eric.
He was just in the area,

- thought he'd say hi.
- Yeah.

Yeah, no, Eric.
Jules told me a lot about you.

It's nice to
finally meet you.

Oh, good.
All right, great.

Just the... just said
the good stuff about you.

Oh, well.

You guys don't have
to stand out here.

Why don't you come
inside and grab a drink?

Uh, you know what? I would,
but I probably shouldn't.

I came by for a work thing and then
I gotta get back to the grind.

- You know how it is.
- Yeah, I know.

Hey, nice to finally
meet you, bro.

Oh, you too. Thanks.

Goodbye, Eric.

- Enjoy your day.
- Take care, bro.

If we were able to move an
object faster than the speed of light,

according to Einstein's
Theory of Relativity,

there would be an inertial
frame of reference

in which
the object or the signal

would be moving
backward in time.

Is time travel possible?

Or is time travel
simply a concept

that exists only
in science fiction?

Imagine reliving
the moon landing,

or watching Babe Ruth
hit a home run in person.

And while time travel
is often thought of

as a science fiction trope,
it is in fact something

that may someday soon
become a reality.

You see, the Theory
of General Relativity

suggests a basis
for backward time travel,

and I not only believe
that time travel is

theoretically possible,
but I am confident

that it will be achieved
during my lifetime.

Like, after 4:00 pm all the...

you guys got your ID?

It's insane, you know?

Like, what are we
supposed to do? ID?

Uh, I'm actually
not a student.

I was hoping to speak
to Dr. Joseph Goyer?

Ah. Authorized personnel only
beyond this point, sir.

Right, no, I understand.

I was just hoping to get
a quick word with him.

Maybe you could bring
him up to the front

or I could schedule
an appointment,

maybe speak to him later.
Whatever works.

Are you deaf,
or are you stupid?

I'm sorry, what?

Ah, deaf, I see.

Authorized personnel only

beyond this point, sir.

Are you for real?
Because I was just asking

- for a little bit of help.
- Yeah, okay,

Keep pushing me, buddy,

and you're about to see
just how real I can get.

Everything okay here, Ed?

Yes. Nothing I can't
handle, Professor.

Uh, can I help you?

Uh, perhaps.
I was hoping to get a word

with Dr. Joseph Goyer
in the Physics Department.

It's okay, Ed.
I'll handle this.

Come on, follow me.

Don't worry.

Pardon me, Ed.

Dr. Goyer was one of
the most brilliant scientists

I ever worked with.

"Was"? He doesn't
work here anymore?

Not for about
five years now.

What happened?

Lab accident.

He was working on
a device that he believed

would generate enough
power to open two points

in the space-time

Time travel.

But his experiment
wasn't authorized.

Something went wrong
and an explosion

destroyed the physics lab.

He died in
that explosion?

No, no one was hurt
in the incident,

but the university president
was none too pleased.

Goyer was fired.

After he got fired,
did you guys keep in touch?

He reach out? You have any
idea where he might be?

No, he pretty much dropped
off the radar after that.

You might want
to try his ex-wife.

I think she still
lives in the area.

Well, Professor,
thank you so much

for your time.
I appreciate it.

Sorry I couldn't
be more help.

You've been great,
thank you.


Time travel.
You, uh...

you don't suppose he was
on to something, do you?

His theories contradicted many
modern physics principles,

but Joe was smarter
than all of us, so...

who knows?

Thanks again.

So can I get you
something to drink?

Coffee? Water?

Uh, sure, I'll have a water.
Sounds good.

You know, like I told
you on the phone,

I don't think I'm going
to be very much help to you.

You know, it seems
like a lifetime ago.

When was the last time
you, um, talked to him?

Truth be told, I haven't
seen or heard from him

in almost five years.

And you don't have any idea
where he might be, or...?

Well, he had a grandfather
on his mother's side

who owns
some land out in Colorado

or... maybe it
was Arizona.

I can't remember,
but you could start there.

So I Holden McNeil-ed her,

she did not Alyssa Jones
me back.

Dude, that blows, man,

and not in a good way.

Oh, and I met her fiancé.

Was he a Rick Derris type?

No, no. He was charming, actually.
Nice guy.

Invited me in for a drink.
I declined.

Well, that's tough
to compete with.

You can't
compete with it.


what if there was a way
to travel back in time

to a point before
she met this guy?

Holy shit,
why didn't I think of that?

The DeLorean's parked
right here, Marty.

- What are we waiting for?
- I'm being serious, Kal.

What if that
were possible?

Well, I would say yeah,
that's a crazy plan.

Why are you
chasing this woman?

Hell, I never did
anything with my life.

I'm floating by.

I've never fought
for anything,

was never inspired
to do anything,

I never
worked for anything.

What if this
is that moment?

What if this is
that moment

that I'm supposed
to fight for?

I don't want to look back
and have any regrets.

What are you
talking about?

There's this guy, Joseph
Goyer, Dr. Joseph Goyer.

He believes that time travel
is possible.

I know it sounds
crazy but he thinks

it can be achieved
in our lifetime.

And you believe him?

No... I don't know.

I'd like a chance to get to
talk to the guy, you know?

Okay, then, why don't you?

'Cause I can't find him.

I went to his old work, I talked
to his ex-coworkers, his ex-wife.

Nobody knows where
the hell the guy is.

Well, maybe... maybe he's dead.

His ex-wife said
something about a ranch

in Colorado or
Arizona or something.


what did you say
this guy's name was again?

Joseph Goyer.

Like G-o-y-e-r?

Yeah. What are you doing?

Give me 24 hours to find
this doctor of yours.

- All right.
- How are you gonna do that?

Hey, I'm Kal.

You got this, right?

- Yeah, no, I got it.
- Thanks, buddy.

All right.

So whoever couldn't
find this doctor of yours

wasn't looking very hard.

What are you talking about?
You found him?

Yeah, where's
the peanut butter?

To the left, second shelf.

- County records.
- What?

Arizona county records,
to be exact.

So, turns out his grandfather

owned a large parcel of land
in rural Arizona,

land which,
according to county records,

has never changed hands,
you follow?

So his grandfather
passed away in 1992,

which means the land
probably stayed

in the family
so they never had to file

the paperwork to change
the name on the deed.

Kal, how'd you find out
all this information, anyway?

what do you think?

Oh, I did a quick
satellite search

and I found this.
Check it out.

What's this?

So that's the house
right there,

and then that looks like
a car or a truck.

It's kind of hard to tell
'cause the resolution...

I swear to God I would
give you a hug right now

if I didn't think
you'd get hard from it.

Well, I did one better:
driving directions.

Look at you!

You know what
this means, right?


Oh, yeah.

I mean, you know,
this guy could wind up

being some kind
of wack job, right?

Eric Laziter, it's been
an honor and a privilege

being your best friend
for the past 16 years.

Godspeed, my friend.

Kal, you're
an amazing human being.

The honor and
the privilege was all mine.

Get in here.
Come here, buddy.

- Love you, man.
- I love you too.

- Aah! Go get her, dog.
- All right. Thank you.

Hey, can I have your TV?

Dr. Goyer?
Joseph Goyer?

Well, it's mainly
just "Joe" these days.

I'm, uh, Eric Laziter.

Nice to see you in person.

I've come a long
way to talk to you.


Well, what can I
do for you, son?

Uh, truthfully
I'm curious about

your theories
on time travel.

You said it could be
achieved in our lifetime,

said theoretically
it was possible.

What do you think we'd
need to make it happen?

A lot of money...
and time.

Well, money I have,

and if your
theories are true...

time shouldn't be
an issue either, right?

Well, technically...
you know what?

Let's go inside and talk.

Okay, the ball
represents the Earth.

- Okay.
- The fabric

represents that which is
MALLEABLE: space and time.

This point where
the fabric and the ball

are touching represents
where we currently are

- in both time and space.
- Okay.

Now, with enough energy
focused on space and time,

you can
snap together in time

two moments
just for an instant.

Sounds a lot like
the Rosen bridge theory.

It's essentially a wormhole
you're talking about, right?


Now, reports mentioned the
immeasurably small amount of time

that the gap
in space-time was open.

Right, suggesting
that not even

an electron could
slip through.

See, that was their flaw,

and where my theory differs.

The electrons could
travel the wormhole,

but they arrive on a different
plane of existence.

When space and time
are broken,

you effectively create
a new alternate reality,

one that follows our past
exactly until it's created,

at which point
the unnatural interactions

spiral off into
a future unrecognizable.

A future unrecognizable,

so you can change the past?

No, no, no.
You can change your future.

Or, rather,
the future in the time line

that you traveled back to.

You're saying
this is a one-way trip, right?

I suppose inter-dimensional

is theoretically
possible at some point.

The concepts and equations

involving that matter
far, far exceed

anything in the current
world known of physics.

Why didn't you
continue your research?

Yeah, um...

blowing up a lab
gives people pause

when it comes
to acquiring funding.

The incident also caused
me to become

a bit of a laughingstock within
the scientific community.


One last question.

How do you feel
about second chances?

Look around.

What do you see?
What do you hear?


It's just beautiful.

All my life
I've been surrounded

by the busyness
of the world,

its problems, the critics.

It can literally drain
the life out of you.

But as I've grown older,

I've grown to appreciate
the peace of mind

that comes with the silence.

I have no desire
to go back.

None at all, huh?
Why is that?

A man can only
handle so much failure.

You know, some of
the brightest minds in history

have had to endure
incredible amounts of failure

in order
to achieve success.

Take Robert Goddard,
for example.

- Apples and oranges.
- It's not apples and oranges.

His theories on rockets
we could potentially use

for space travel,
they were highly criticized.

He was called a fool,
told they were impossible.

He was shunned.

Eight years later,

his research was key in the
genesis of the space program.

- Your point?
- My point, doctor,

is that he let people drive him
into seclusion, the critics,

and he died before
he was ever able

to see his vision
become reality.

My point to you... maybe it's time
for you to get back to work.

What's this?

A monument
to wasted time and money.

Want to know how it works?

In theory...


The process
of condensing energy

can be obtained with
super-conducted dark matter.

Dark matter makes up
approximately 25%

of the total mass
of the universe,

and while it is
not detectable

via traditional means,

I have devised a way
to collect and store

limited quantities of it.

You can store
dark matter, how?

By using rods made of
a special Osmium alloy,

oppositely charged to
create a unique magnetic field

which attracts and
stores the dark matter.

The charges are
then reversed,

causing the dark matter
to be discharged

as a form of dark energy

with enough
power to collapse two points

in the space-time continuum.

Okay. All right,
where do we start?

Uh, we start
by cleaning the lab.

The lab doesn't
get used much, huh?

It's used plenty...
for storage.

Uh, and this?

- How big are the holes?
- What, are you serious?

I mean, I can buy you another pair
of socks if that's what you need.

Throw it in "tools".

Tools... see, I've been
using these things all wrong.

You're looking at it wrong.
It's a rag now.

That's clever.

So, what are you doing
with your time these days

now that you're done
studying time travel?

I spend most of my time
working on that old truck.

It was my dad's.

Been fixing it up
for a long time now.

More of a tinkerer, really,
than a scientist these days,

though I've never really
given up, I suppose.

I'm working the problem
on a smaller scale.

So there are scales
to time travel?

Powering the machine
is only half the battle.

I'm working on the equations.

I see. Well...

call me a simpleton,

but these equations
look pretty solid to me.


The variables
are undefined.

I spend most of my time chipping
away at the possibilities.

I have no solutions
as of yet.

You identify
the impossibilities,

all you're left with
are the possible.

Yeah, I suppose.

I mean,
isn't that the end game?

To solve the equation?

When I was a kid,
there was this toy,

um... a decoder or
a kaleidoscope or something.

It was
the holy grail to me.

It cost five dollars.

So I scrimped and saved

and added cents
here and there

and eventually I had it,
five dollars.

I went down
and I bought the toy...

only to have it stolen
by this neighborhood bully,

Earl Schroeder.

Anyway, I saved again,
and my birthday comes

and all of a sudden,
five dollars in my palm.

I get on my bike
and I pedal so fast

to get to the store,
I upend my bike

on the way to get
my perfect prize.

And my birthday money
went for new handlebars.

Not my choice.

Back to square one.
I save the money,

I get to the store,

sold out, never to return.

I'd say somebody

didn't want you to have
that kaleidoscope.

Ah, you would think.

Years later I have a job.

One week I get
a bonus in my check.

I never forgot that toy.

I find it at
a vintage toy store.

I go down to the store.

I slide the money
across the table,

ear-to-ear grin.

I collect my perfect prize.

I walk outside, I'm looking
through the kaleidoscope.

All right,
mission accomplished.

Sort of.

While I'm looking
through the kaleidoscope,

not paying attention
to where I'm going,

I run into this
beautiful young woman.

She's carrying
home groceries from the store.

Knock 'em all over the ground.

In my haste to help her
collect her groceries,

I step on and crush
the kaleidoscope.

Kaleidoscope was jinxed.

No, actually
quite the opposite.

That beautiful young woman

would go on
to become my wife.

This lifelong quest
that I was on

was actually about
something else altogether.

See, I didn't know where
I was supposed to be

until I'd
actually arrived.

Earth to Eric.

Yeah, I was just
thinking about your story

and if
your theory's right...

I was just thinking maybe
your journey's not complete.

What is all this, anyway?

Most of them are
sophisticated gauges

and instruments that will
allow me to pinpoint

exactly when and where
a time traveler ends up.

The process requires
exact calculations

to determine
not only the time,

- but the place as well.
- Okay.

The earth is
in constant motion,

both rotationally
and orbitally,

so sending
a time traveler back

to a specific point in space

could very well occur at a time
when the earth isn't there.

And I must also account
for not only

the rotation of the earth
but also the rate or speed

at which the galaxy
is expanding.

Without precise
and exact calculations,

a traveler could end up
being dropped off

in the cold vacuum of space
and killed instantly.

Push a couple of buttons,
turn a few knobs, right?

Hey, you have no idea
the amount of education

- it takes to fathom this kind of math!
- All right, relax.

I understand what
an imaginary number is.

- It's okay.
- Good.

Why don't you
go get some rest?

Tomorrow... tomorrow
we start the real work.

Look, I'm no psychiatrist...

but I can tell there's something
more going on with you.

Ah... am I allowed
to cite personal reasons?

All right,
suffice it to say that, um,

maybe I wasn't happy
where my journey ended up

and I decided to take
things into my own hands.

Surely you've had things
in your life that you regret,

things you wish
you'd done differently.

Only one
that really mattered.

I don't know, man.
I gotta tell ya...

I do not see you
getting past my shields.

Pfft. Your shields
will break down.

Star Fleet's pretty smart
in their work.

Torpedoes with
16.1 isotone power,

18 type 7
phase emitters.

No, the USS "Enterprise"

trumps the Imperial
Class Star Destroyer

in any galaxy.

Oh, and be careful
when you set that CPU.

That has to be very
precisely placed.

I got it.


Pretty cool.

Range beats melee.

Besides, phasers
fire Nardion particles.

Even if a lightsaber
could deflect those,

which it's not
because it's meant

to deflect pure
energy blaster fire,

the phaser's continuous
beam capability

is gonna trump the Jedi's
arm strength any day.

But they're Jedis.
I think they would be

slaying red shirts before
their arms got tired.

Ah, but you forget about the
wide-beam capability of the phaser.

I did not forget about the wide-beam
capability of the phaser.

The Jedi only has to protect
himself, right, or herself.

Three-foot span of a lightsaber,
that would protect most.

Plus a wide-beam only lands
on a single, flat plane.

Everybody knows that.

Luke, gimme Han,
spells dream team.

Versus Kirk and Spock,
an infallible leader

and his exceedingly
logical sidekick? Please.

You give Han his blaster,
you give Luke his lightsaber...

Ah, shit!

What happened?

I fried a circuit.
It was a custom job.

It took me two years
to build that thing.

Okay, so what do we do now?


Let me think.

The fuel cells
discharge in parallel,

so I can jumper past
the defective board

but the loss in power
I won't be able to calculate

until the rods are
charged and in place.

Once I get the rods
in place,

I can take
some test readings and see

what kind of a discharge
we'll be able to achieve.

So what number are we
looking for here?

Well, theoretically,
something in the neighborhood

of 500 exa eVs
would be ideal.

But at a minimum
we need to achieve

at least a peta eV
to even think about

the space-time continuum.

So basically you're
saying the amount of energy

we generate with this thing
is directly related

to the amount
of time we can travel, right?

In layman's terms, yes.

What? What happened?

463 peta eVs.

It's quite a power loss,

but, um...

I'd still call
this step a success.



when are you going
to come clean

about why you are
really here?

Why I'm really here.
Does it matter?

Of course it matters.

Up until now,
I've been content to allow you

to help me with my research,
assuming that your true reason

for being here
would surface eventually,

but as we approach
what is certain to be

a crossroad
in our experiment,

your true reason
may be an impediment

to our continued

How so?

Now, that depends on
why you're really here.

You could be working
for the government

and you're here
to steal my secrets

to use them for
your own nefarious purposes.

You caught me.

I'm kidding.
I don't work for the government.

I'm joking.

I told you,
it's personal.

Eric, you have to explain
yourself better than that.

You really wanna know?

I do.


I am, uh...

I'm here about a girl.

I don't know what it is
you think we're doing here,

but I assure you
whatever we accomplish

will have little
consequence in fixing

whatever's wrong
with your love life.

I'm in love.
Okay, I met a girl,

and I fell in love with her
and she is fantastic,

and she inspires me
in ways that I never thought

I could be inspired.

Okay, and I need you
to send me back in time

to a point before
she meets this guy,

this... this guy
she's with now

who she thinks
she's in love with.

I can't send
you back in time.

First of all,
I think you fail to understand

the ramifications
of such an action,

and second,
there's no indication

this device will even work.

Well, you said
that this was possible.

In theory.

There's no way to
test it or prove it.

That's how you
test it, right?

That's how you prove it.
You send me back.

That's the test.

Eric, I'm not
experimenting on you.

There's no way of
knowing what will happen

to someone once
they leave my garage.

Their molecules could be
scattered to the cosmos.

You haven't even
thought through

the situation
you would be in

if and when I could
send you back.

You know,
I'd figure it out.

See, that's what I mean.

You have no idea what
you'd be going back to.

You wouldn't exist.
I mean, yes,

the you from
that timeline would exist

but you, Eric,
you would have no money,

no job,
no identity.

For all intents and purposes,

you'd struggle to survive.

And even if I could
send you back,

I wouldn't do
it for a reason

so trite and juvenile
as lost love.

Trite and juvenile? You know what?
Let me tell you something.

If you've ever been
in love in your life,

you'd know what I
was talking about.

Don't you stand there
and try to pass judgment on me.

You know nothing about me.

I'm sorry, Eric.
I'm sorry.


you've been
great on the build.

You have been.
I'm eternally grateful.

Yeah, great. You know how
you pay me back?

You send me back.
That's how you pay me back!

That's the only
fucking reason I'm here!

I can't send you back.

Look... these equations,
they're still unsolved.

So unless you
can solve them...

I'm sorry.

Time travel
just isn't possible.

Yeah, you know what?
Fuck it, let's just give up.

We keep trying.
That's what we do.

That's what we've been doing.
We don't give up.

We keep fucking trying!

Time travel is not possible.

So that's it, right?
That's, uh...

This whole thing
has been futile, right?

It's a...
it's a charade?

It's not possible?
It's for nothing?

No, it wasn't for nothing.

We've made great strides
in proving my theories,

strides that will be
hugely beneficial

to mankind in the future.

Where are you going?

You know what? It looks
like I'm going nowhere.

I actually envy you.

You envy the guy that...
guy that's in love

with the girl
he can't have?


I envy the guy
who knows what he wants

and isn't afraid
to go after it.

Even if going after it
looks like

it's gonna result
in a fiery crash?

No, I think
we should all be so lucky

to experience a crash
like that, you know?

I mean, at least
once in our lives.

I suppose.

But I like
to land safe and sound.

I think it's
a way better plan.

Safe and sound, huh?

Let me tell you
something about that.

When I was in school,
everyone thought I was

the wild and
crazy one, you know?

Had to be the first
to do everything.

Truth is...
I was hiding.

I always played it safe.

And look where that got me.

I am bartending in
the middle of fucking nowhere.

So why don't you
get the hell out of here,

you know,
go do something else?

Well, it's not that easy.

Um, I have

You know,
I'm not a kid anymore.

I can't sit
in my room and dream.

I gotta make shit work.

I've got debt
I've gotta pay off.

I've got $40 grand
in student loans

because I was so set
on getting a degree...

that did me a lot
of good. Didn't it?

Degrees are a funny thing.

Everyone's got
responsibilities, you know?

It's never too late
to dream, is it?

Sometimes it's too late
to make those dreams a reality.

It just is.

What if you could
go back in time, right,

and change something.

You can change
anything you want.

What would it be?



I would do something
that scared the shit out of me.

I would.

I'd go on an adventure.

I would get
the hell out of here and...

I don't know
if I'd come back.

All right.

An adventure.
I like that.


Where to?


I've never been to Alaska.

Me neither.

But I hear
the northern lights

are absolutely breathtaking
this time of year.

And then I don't know.

I would just see
where the universe took me.

I would just...

I'd be free.


You know,
it's a shame...

by the time we figure out
what we really want...

most of the time
it's too late.

Opportunity's lost.

Hadn't thought of it that way.
You're right.

Good luck with that girl.

I think I got it.

All right, I've reworked
the Rosen bridge theory

with re-evaluated properties
based on Schwartzschild.

We know that
"c-squared" is broken.

No, no, that's
Schwartzschild's theory.

Mitchell fixed those problems.

But Schwarzschild
achieved the proper values,

so his equation helps us.

Look, we know
that the speed of light

is inconsistent,
which means both sides

of the equation
are inconsistent.

All right,
the common factor is r.

Thus, 2GM equals

G and M are
subject to c-squared

and r based on
irrational polymers.

"i" exists!
And it solves everything.

She means that much to you?

She does.

Okay, if you
are going to do this,

it has to be soon.

The rods are decaying
at a much more rapid pace

than I had
initially calculated.

According to my estimates,
we should be able to

generate a discharge
of 16.7 peta eVs.

Now this is not
what I was hoping for,

but it should be sufficient
to allow us to connect

any two moments
in the past five years.

to my calculations,

you will arrive
in your new reality at 5:00 am,

November 21st, 2008,

plus or minus five minutes.

How's that for irony?

Even with a time machine.

I've prepared a survival
kit of sorts for you.

This should allow you to get

to where you need to go.

What's this?

It's a little bit
of pre-2008 cash,

my old cell phone,
and the keys to my truck.

That should allow you
to get to Los Angeles,

but remember,
once you land in 2008,

you're gonna
have to figure out

your long-term survival plan.

Thank you.

I don't even know if
the cell phone's gonna work.

The electrical
interference from the rift

in the space-time continuum

will likely fry
the circuits,

but let's go ahead
and take it anyway.

I'd like to ask you
a small favor in return.

Yeah, of course,

What do you need?

The day you arrive
is coincidentally

the same day
as my lab accident.

Irony all around.

Why didn't that make
national news, by the way?

It did,
but the opening

of some teen romance
vampire movie

stole the headlines
that day.

Anyway, I need you
to get this to me

by 7:30 PM.
That's important.

That should prevent me
from blowing up the lab

in that timeframe and
it's a six hour drive

to Los Angeles, so you should
have plenty of time.


we should get going.

Are you ready?


Eric, you must be
absolutely certain.

There's no coming
back from this.

Yeah, I know.

I know.
I'm sure, yes.


Let's do it.

A historic moment.

For sure.

The first trip ever
through time.

You know,
it's comforting to know

that while me
in my current form

will not feel the effects,

there will be a copy of me

in another reality
who will...

now have the opportunity
for a better life.

That's the saddest thing
I ever heard.

I'm sorry.

Oh, Eric,
don't be sorry.

You gave me a second chance
to feel alive again,

and for that...

you deserve your chance.

I don't even know
what to say to you.

There's nothing to say.
Get up there.

Get up there.

Come here.
Come here.

Oh, thank you.

You're welcome.

Go get her.

May the Force be with you.


Okay, this is a "starter"?

All right,
all right, all right.

Here we go.

Come on, come on, baby.
Come on.

All right, all right,
what do you want from me?


Come on,


All right, the hard way.



Do I know you?

Uh, no, not yet.

Um, you're Ally, right?


Well, I'm the only Ally
within the next ten miles.

There was this other girl
who was calling herself that,

but she changed it to "Ash"
'cause her name is...



Okay, so, you know my name,

which is weird.

So, care to get on
even ground with me?

Yeah, uh, right.

Eric. Eric.
Good to meet you.

- Ally.
- Yeah, I know.

So, Eric,

What, uh,

what brings you to this
fine establishment today?

Um, I actually... my... my
truck broke down up the road,

so I'm sort of stranded.

- Oh, yeah?
- Stranded here, yeah.

- That's a bummer.
- Right.

Well, you want me to
call you a tow truck?

No, no, no.
Actually, can I borrow a phone?

- Well, yeah.
- Yeah?

I got one right here.

Okay, thanks.

Just gonna make a quick
phone call to a friend.

Be quick,
it's pre-pay.

Thank you.


Kal, hey, listen.
It's Eric.

Oh, hey, what's up, Eric?

Listen, I need you
to come pick me up.

I'm in Arizona right now,
just stop doing

whatever you're doing
and come get me.

If you woke me up
this early for a joke

I'm going
back to bed.

No, I'm not joking.

I'm in Northern Arizona,
I need you to come get me

and it's an

Just hurry up,
will you?

Tell me where
you are.

It's 11742 Hickory Way
in Grand River, Arizona.

All right.

You... are
a lifesaver.

Thank you.
I've been told that before.

You know, I, uh,
it's the weirdest thing.

I've been in town
for a couple of hours

and I got nothing
but headaches.

That'll be 1.02.

Oh, yeah?
The town's really not that bad

if you give
it a chance.

I'm not sure it's the town
as much as it is the year.


Uh, I'm probably
just dehydrated.

Oh, yeah,
that happens.

Fluid's in me.
You got a map, by chance,

of Arizona I could
take a peek at?


Yeah, here you go.

Thank you.

Can I have it?
Thank you.

You're welcome.

So you like working here,
or what?

It's okay.

You know,
it pays the bills.

I'm working here to pay
my way through college.

Well, it's either that or
be a stripper, so...

I'm kidding.

This town doesn't
even have a strip club.

You ever... you ever think about
getting out of here?

So I can be
a stripper?

No. No, I wasn't
thinking about that.

I mean, you know,
get out of here,

do something
more adventurous.

Sometimes, right?

Well, don't wait
too long, okay?

You might... you might miss
your window.

Gee, thanks.

That's sage advice
from a total weirdo.

You think I'm a
total weirdo?


I mean, like,
in a good way.

You're like, um...

like Thomas Jerome Newton.

You know, "The Man
Who Fell to Earth"?

David Bowie?

You need to watch
more movies, man.

I will make sure
I put that one

on my
instant queue.

Your instant what?

Never mind.


Hey, baby.
How much?

Kal! What's up?

Hey, man! Ahh!

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

There's something
different about you.

Uh, maybe I
look a little older.

Yeah, maybe.

So what are you
doing in Arizona, dude?

Long story, you wouldn't
believe me if I told you.

How long did it take
you to get here anyway?

I left at like
quarter to eight so...

I don't know,
five and a half hours?

Five and a half? All right.
We gotta go.

I'll explain in the car,
come on.

So, let me get
this straight.

You traveled back in
time so you are you,

but you're not
really you.

Sort of. I mean,
Yes and no.

I am me, I'm just not
the me from this time.

Well, isn't that
what I just said?

What? Are we playing
"Who's on First" here?

- Come on.
- It's complicated.

No, no, I get it.
I understand that part,

what I don't
understand is... why?


No, dishonestly. Look,
I want you to tell me

that you came back
for Katy Perry

'cause you found out
she was lying about it

when she
kissed that girl

so it shattered
your reality so bad

that you had to come
back to a simpler time.

Yes, honestly! What kind
of question is that?

I'm in love.

With Katy Perry?
Or the girl she kissed?

No, neither,
it's a different girl.

It's a completely
different girl.

It's not
Katy Perry,

it's a different
girl entirely.

Oh, man, did she
die or something?

No, no, she's just,
uh, you know...

she's unavailable.

What the hell does that mean?

Wow, is she in prison?

No, she's not
in prison.

She's, uh, engaged.

Whoa. Uh-oh.
That's not good.

What do you mean?

What if she says no?

No, she can't...
she's not gonna say no,

Just we clicked,

we got a thing,
she's not gonna say no.

So in five
years you click,

but you have no idea
who this girl is now.

What if you don't even
dig the younger her?

I know who she becomes
and I dig that, so...

Yeah, but if she
meets you now

she may never
even become that person.

Why are you being such a Debbie
Downer, man? It's gonna work out.

Look, I invented time travel
for this girl, okay?

- It's just reality.
- I traveled through time for this girl.

It's going to work.

She's not gonna
say no, it's fine.


So, where exactly am
I dropping you off?

South Hills Mall.

But I need you to
take me to CCS first.

CCS... are
you crazy?

That's all the way
over on the West Side.

It'll take us at least
an hour to get there.

We're not going to be
back to South Hills Mall

by 6:45.

All right, uh,

let me borrow your phone.
You got a phone?

Yeah, yeah,
it's right here.

What is this? You got
internet on this thing?

No, it's not a computer.

Internet on
a phone...

Hi, yeah, I need you to
give me the number

for the California
College of Science.

Yeah, that's
the one.

You got a pen?

Yup. What is it?

49, All right,
thank you very much.

Hi, yeah, I need to speak
to a Dr. Joseph Goyer.

He's in your...
Yes, that's exactly right.

That Joseph Goyer, please.

No, I understand.
Listen, it's very important.

Right, no I heard
you the first time.

Listen, hmm...

just get him on
the phone, please.

Just get him...

The heck?
She hung up on me.

Dude, you gotta talk her up, man.
Try to sound sexy.

- I'm calling her back.
- Let me talk to her.

No, no, no, I'm not gonna
let you talk to her.

Hi, yeah, you know what? I think
we just got disconnected.

I was hoping to speak
to Dr. Joseph Goyer.


Fuck! This bitch
hung up on me.


How rude.

So where am I taking you?
CCS or the mall?

How far to
the mall?

From here,
like, 20 minutes.

Give or take.

Fuck! Yeah, we gotta
go to the mall.

- Right here?
- Yeah, this is good. Thanks, buddy.

- Hey, let me ask you something.
- Yeah?

What am I like
in the future?

Pretty much
the same guy.

- Still awesome?
- Yeah.

- Score! Ha-ha!
- Yeah.

Oh, you do come out
of the closet, though.

- Wait, what?
- Yeah.

What? I'm not...

wait, what are you
saying, I'm gay?

Are you fucking
with me?

He's just
fucking with me, right?

I'm not gay, am I?

No. If I was I'd totally
know it by now.

Yeah, he's just
fucking with me.

Wait, is he?



listen, this is
going to sound, um,

borderline insane.


I've got these two tickets
to the new "Twilight" film.

I was going to
take my little sister

and she got sick,
so now I'm stuck with

these two tickets to
"Twilight" and, um,

anyway, I was wondering
would you, uh,

would you want to go with me?
This "Twilight"?

You were
right, that is insane

because that movie
looks like total garbage.


Yeah, well, you know what?
It is? It's trash.

Um, but I've
got the tickets

and I thought why
let 'em go to waste?

Oh, actually I think
you can just cash 'em in

as long as the movie
hasn't started yet.

Is that true?

- Yeah.
- You're kidding me.

That's horrible.
Horrible news.

Um, I'm gonna
level with you.

I don't have
tickets to "Twilight."

I was walking, I looked
up and I saw your face

and I thought, "that girl is stunning
and I've gotta go ask her out,"

and the first thing that
came out of my mouth

was that stupid "Twilight"
line and I am sorry.


You know, I think that might be the
worst pick-up line I've ever heard.

I don't think that would
ever work on anyone.


At least not in
this universe.

Let me see the

You know, next time
you might just want to

go with the
traditional route of

"do you want to grab
a cup of coffee?"

No, it's mine!

Let go!

Look what you did.
You broke it!

You know what?
Thank you.

For what?

For inspiring me to
do something great.

Thank you.

How fast can you
get me to CCS?

I'm Kal...
get in.

- Punch it!
- Whoo!

Excuse me, excuse me,
excuse me!

Hey, authorized personnel
only beyond this point, sir.

You gotta be kidding me,
you again?

I'm sorry, have we met before?
I don't recall.

Listen, I need to talk to
Dr. Joseph Goyer.

Ah, the doctor is
about to oversee

a very important experiment.
Authorized personnel only, sir.

Do you understand
the gravity of the-

Sir! If you do not calmly
back away I am authorized

to use an appropriate
level of force to ex... no!


be nice to people.
Be nice.

Dr. Goyer!

What is the meaning of this?
Who are you?

We're about to start a very
complex and dangerous experiment.

What do you want?

Yeah, yeah, yeah,
Does that mean anything to you?

You're sure I can't
convince you to stay?

You're a great
lab assistant.

Uh, yeah,
I think the universe

has something more in
store for me, actually.

Well, it's a pleasure
meeting you, Eric.

You too.
Thanks for your hospitality,

- I appreciate that.
- Oh, you're welcome.

If you ever
need anything...

don't hesitate
to ask.

Thank you.
You too.

All right, this is me.

- Good luck.
- Thank you.

- Hey.
- Hey.

Uh, this is going to
sound a little bit crazy.


would you like to go on
an adventure with me?

- An adventure?
- Yeah.

I don't know. It depends...

I hear the Northern Lights
of Alaska are

absolutely breathtaking
this time of year.
