American Horror Story (2011–…): Season 10, Episode 8 - Inside - full transcript

The president struggles with the morality of a deal he must make.

♪♪ ♪♪

I simply want to know
how you found this out.

So then it is true.

‐ No, Dick.

I just want to know
how you found this out.

‐ Hoover called me.

Heard from
one of the joint chiefs that‐‐

that you were gonna have
a little talk with Jack.

What does that mean,
Mr. President?

‐ It means I should have fired
that bastard Hoover

when I had the chance.

‐ Are you gonna tell Jack
about the alien treaty?

‐ He's the President
of the United States, Dick.

He deserves to know
what's going on.

‐ Sir,

Kennedy cannot be trusted.

‐ You're just sore because
he whooped you in the election.

‐ Ha.

He didn't whoop me.

He stole it.

Son of a bitch Daley
handed it to him.

‐ You oughta control that

perspiration problem of yours,

‐ We're getting
off the subject, sir.

You once told me your motto

was, "Never make mistakes
in a hurry."

I implore you,
don't abandon that motto now.

‐ I did nothing

for several months.

Now things
are changing quickly.

They're ramping up.
Bobby's already making

about the black budget.

And I'm sure Jack
put him up to it,

but they're gonna find out
the truth.

We just need
to get ahead of it.

‐ And‐and what if Kennedy's
Roman Catholic conscience

can't live with this?

Are you really gonna
take the chance

that they might cancel
the treaty?

Ike, he's soft.
He's a Democrat.

He has no‐‐

he has no balls.

I have grave concerns, Ike.

Grave concerns.

‐ I'm gonna give them every
consideration they deserve.

♪♪ ♪♪

‐ I can't believe that
son of a bootlegging prick

is actually making us wait.

‐ Language, Dick.

We've only been here
30 seconds.

‐ Well, we shouldn't be here
at all, Mr. President.

‐ Come right this way.

Can I get you gentlemen

‐ Oh, thank you, Evelyn, no.

‐ No thanks.

‐ Thank you, Evelyn.

‐ This is a surprise, Ike.

I think last time we met

it took us a week
to get all our ducks in a row.

‐ Well, the less people
who know about this meeting,

the better.

‐ Well,
I'm on pins and needles.

how's New York treating you?

‐ Oh, just peachy.

I think I actually spotted
an American citizen

the other day.

Well, gentlemen, please.

‐ Thank you.
‐ Sure.


So what's the mystery?

Is someone in my cabinet
a Russian spy?

‐ I wish it were only that.

♪♪ ♪♪

♪♪ ♪♪

‐ I keep waiting for...

Truman to show up,
tell me this is all

a hazing ritual
for new presidents.

‐ I understand
how you must feel.

It's a hard pill to swallow.

‐ Can we call someone?

You don't look very well, Jack.

‐ Because I'm not well.

I can't understand
how a sitting president‐‐

once the Supreme
Allied Commander in Europe‐‐

could make such a treaty.

Allowing Americans to be
abducted and experimented on?

‐ Are you implying that
President Eisenhower somehow‐‐

‐ Dick.

♪♪ ♪♪

5,000 people a year.

It's a small number
whose sacrifice

ensures the safety
of 190 million Americans.

‐ And with the technology
that we are getting in exchange

we will dominate the world.

And that's what this is about.

♪♪ ♪♪

Our dominance.

♪♪ ♪♪

‐ Well, of course, Jack.

What else is there?

‐ The director of the CIA,

the head of the DOD,
the joint chiefs‐‐

they all know
about this treaty.

And I'm the damn President
of the United States

elected by the American people,

and they were gonna
keep this from me.

‐ Jack, honey,

aren't you even gonna try
to get into the mood?

‐ How come you're not
going crazy about this?

‐ What do you mean?

‐ Well, I tell you
we have a treaty with aliens,

and it's as if I've told you
that we're...

we're repainting
the Lincoln Bedroom.

‐ Well, I've always known

something like this
was happening.

‐ You have?

‐ When I was a little girl,
I woke up

in the middle of the night
to this...


There was this teddy bear.

I didn't know
where it came from.

My foster parents
never game me any toys.

♪♪ ♪♪

And I told my foster mother.

She didn't believe me
and she told me I was crazy.

And she sent me
to another home.

It wasn't a dream.

I've never been so scared
in my life.

And I do appreciate you taking
me into your confidence.

‐ I can't tell Jackie.

I need to tell someone.

‐ You know what I think
is really bothering you?

‐ What's that?

‐ You know what you need to do,

but you know
it's not going to be easy.

Jack, the American people
expect the truth from you.

It's why they love you.

‐ And it's why I love you too.

♪♪ ♪♪

‐ Hello?

‐ Well, I was right.

That Ivy League bastard‐‐
he's gonna do it.

‐ Dick, the devil
you calling me at this hour?

‐ Is the fudge out of the pan?

‐ Shh.

You're just dreaming,
it's okay, honey.

Hold on.

♪♪ ♪♪

What is it, Dick?

‐ I just got word that, uh,

Kennedy is convening
a secret study group.

You wanna guess
what they're studying?

‐ Oh, God almighty.
‐ That's right.

Little Lord Fauntleroy's
just dying

to tell the American people
what's going on.

Now, we can't
just let this happen.

‐ Do we know
who's in the study group?

‐ Ike, you can bet your ass
there's at least one

goddamn Jew
and one Harvard fuck.

And they're gonna go
to the media.

They always do.
And then we're‐‐

we're screwed royal.

‐ Have you been drinking,

‐ No, I am drinking.

And I've never
had a better reason.

♪♪ ♪♪

This is, uh...

♪♪ ♪♪

This is catastrophic, sir.

You need to think of yourself.

Your legacy.

If President Harvard
comes clean,

he's gonna point the finger
directly at you.

You made the treaty
with the aliens,

and he's gonna plant
a target on you.

Now we have to start thinking
about containment.

‐ If he's not out
in three minutes,

we'll send somebody
in there.

‐ Isn't this wonderful?

This Salisbury steak

looks absolutely
melt‐in‐your‐mouth delicious.

Even for breakfast.

Don't you think?

‐ And you cooked this
in a new microwave oven?

‐ Took all of 30 seconds.

I have to confess
I was a trifle nervous

about using technology
we got from them.

But I have to admit...

it's absolutely life‐changing.

The public
is going to eat it up.

‐ Mmm, mmm.

‐ We interrupt you
with a special news bulletin.

The President was shot
as he drove

from Dallas Airport
to downtown Dallas.

It is reported
that three bullets rang out.

A Secret Service man was heard
to shout from the car,

"He's dead."
‐ Ike.

‐ The President slumped into
the lap of the First Lady.

‐ Is that related to...

‐ Apparently,
a bullet wound in his head.

More details as they come.

‐ There is a species of fungus

that threatens
the Earth today.

It was discovered.

Dr. Palmer called it
"blood rust."

I've seen the blood rust.

‐ You need to call Jackie.
‐ Oh, call Jackie?

‐ To express your condolences.

‐ I will do no such thing.

The work I did
in the White House,

and all I got was scorn.

"The Pink Palace"
the press called it,

as if there's something wrong
with blush tones.

‐ I'm gonna make some calls.
‐ Now, don't you tell yourself

you've done anything wrong.

Everything you do
is for the good of the country.

This is patriotism
at its finest.

♪♪ ♪♪

And I'm proud of you.

You should be proud.

‐ You be proud
for the both of us.

‐ If you're so ashamed
of this treaty,

then why did you make it?

♪♪ ♪♪

♪♪ ♪♪

‐ Open the damn doors.

At ease.

Let's get this started.

You got a hearing problem, son?

‐ You always begin these
meetings with a prayer, sir.

‐ Well, that's when we had
something to pray to.

You're excused.

Get out!

You've all been briefed
as to what's going on,

so let's get the first
question out of the way.

Yes, it's true.

Every damn word of it.

‐ Mr. President...

this proposal
from these creatures

is a complete surrender
of our national sovereignty.

‐ If we don't play ball,

they'll make a treaty
with the Soviets.

The Russians are already
ahead of us in space.

A deal like this
could let us catch up.

‐ But at what cost?

‐ Mr. President,

Subject One
has left the containment area.

‐ Where is she?

This is our 40 days

Someone needs to stand up
and say,

"Get behind me, Satan!"

Our world is dying.

And if we can't find a way

we will go extinct.

If you were in
the same situation,

wouldn't you try
to save your people?

‐ Yeah.

Yeah, I probably would.

Well, why don't you just...
come here?

We're a pretty
welcoming country.

Why do you need
to abduct people?

‐ Because your Earth
is contaminated.

There are toxins and viruses

that we have not evolved
to combat.

So we need to create
something better.

Part human, part us.

That's why
we need your people‐‐

so that we can go on.

We won't wait forever
for your answer.

Oh, and I ordered

the most divine

So yummy, lemon cake.

Acres of pink frosting,

of course.

And I do hope Rock

will help me
blow out my candles.

‐ Wonderful.
‐ Oh, and Ethel Merman

and Ray Bolger
are going to perform.

Have you called
Lawrence Welk yet?

‐ It slipped my mind.

‐ Oh, please be a dear
and don't forget.

All Lawrence needs
is a word from you

and he'll bring
his entire orchestra.

Can you believe
"The New York Times" says

adults across the country

are starting
to celebrate birthdays?

And all because of me

and the ones I throw
for myself.

Birthday parties are not
just for children anymore.

You're not the only one
who's leaving behind a legacy.

‐ Well, I'm leaving something

I wouldn't call it a legacy.

‐ Oh, you're not still fretting
over the alien situation.

I thought that was all sorted.

It's not.

that trusts me with secrets.

I can't believe
that I wasn't let in on this.

‐ Well, I suspect
you would be eventually.

But we're not here to dissect
your hurt feelings.

I need you to convince Ike
to do the right thing.

‐ Why would he listen to me?

Ike doesn't even like me.

‐ That's true.

He doesn't exactly hold you
in the highest of esteem.

Who does?

But he does admire
your political skill

And if you explained
how disastrous it would be

for him to turn down
this offer,

I believe he would listen.

If Ike is ruined by this,

will happen to you?

You'll never get what you want.

It doesn't matter
how I found out.

‐ Well,

with all due respect,
Mr. President,

the most important thing now
is the American people

and what a wrong decision
would do to them.

Now, I've been called

the number one red‐baiter
in this country.

And that is a badge
I wear with pride.

But whether it's commies
or these things,

I do not want to relinquish
the sovereignty of our country

any more than you do, sir.

But there may be another way.

‐ I'm afraid to ask.

‐ We play their game.

We give them what they need,

we take everything
they give to us,

and when the time is right,

we use their own technology
against them

and we kick their asses
right the hell back

to wherever it is those slimy
little bastards came from.

‐ Dick, there are so many
"what ifs" in that

that it's impossible to count.

We don't even know
if their technology

will work against them.

‐ There's no technology that
cannot be applied to war.

Technology is power, Ike.

better than anyone.

We don't know if that happened.

It could be a growth.

just hit us all overnight

all kinds of strange reactions
