David's mind explores possible lives where he made different choices.

WOMAN: Don't,
don't, don't, don't.

That's... I have... I have
it, I have it, I have it...

It's okay.

You're okay.

Spit now.

Sleep tight.

(bus passing)

Now? Now? Stop.

Now, let me, let me... Now?

(indistinct chatter)

I got to... stop.

(elevator bell chimes)

Morning, Cynthia.

MAN: Man.

Boy shorts or a red thong.

(footfalls echo)

I'd like to just...


ahead. They're waiting.

It's not real. It's
not real. It's not real.

CYNTHIA: They're waiting.

DON: What's left to say?

We're an open book, basically.

You've seen all
the financials...

- Come on, already,
we're waiting.
- toured the facilities.

Are we gonna do this or what?

A merger of this
size, you understand,

with government oversight,

our shareholders
are a bit skittish,

to put it mildly, and they
just want to make sure

that everything is perfect.

No stone unturned, as they say.

DON: Do it, bitch.

Take the bait.

MAN 1: Sign it.

Pending lawsuits.

Class action.


Sign it.

MAN 2: Cruller.

Maybe a bear claw.

MAN 1: Sign it. Faulty relays.

Fire hazard.

Pending lawsuits.

And I have to say,
I want to thank you,

for the patience that you have
shown throughout this process,

and I'm pleased to report

that everything has been
vetted to our satisfaction.


Can I talk to you for a minute?

Who are you?

Who is he?

It's, uh, nobody.

He's the ex-coffee boy.

(door opens)

They're not telling
you everything.


What is this? A shakedown?

Just sign the deal.

It's been ten months.

The champagne's on ice.

(chuckles softly)

(door opens, closes)

- Talk.
- There's...

You missed something.

- Not possible.
- DAVID: A lawsuit.

Class action. Not filed yet.

Faulty relays.

Some kind of fire hazard.

They kept it quiet.

How do you know that?

I'm... I'm psychic.

LAURA: Stupid or crazy?

I'm not crazy.

It's... I can't help it.

I hear people's thoughts.

Like, right now, you're thinking
about how your ankle hurts,

'cause you tweaked it
on the treadmill yesterday,

and in there, you were
thinking about your son,

and how he may be
smoking weed and stealing

from your wallet at night.

Just ask them.

Faulty relays, see what happens.


(door opens)

- (exhales)
- (door closes)

LAURA: I'm sorry.

I think his mom dropped him
on his head too many times.

(soft laughter)

Kids today. I had
a girl one time,

started crying in a
meeting, wouldn't stop.

We had to call the boys
with the butterfly nets.


You know, I-I'm curious, though,

when were you gonna tell
me about the faulty relays?


LAURA: How many
fires have there been,



- I'm...
- MAN 2: 302.

DON: beside myself with...

not knowing the
topic of conversation.

"Relays," is that a race?



That's impressive for a product

that's been on the
market only six weeks,

and with 11 million units in
the field, let's say you settle

for 50K per person,
plus legal fees...

DON: Look,


Okay, these fires...

It's... (laughs softly)

They might not even
file, and even if they do,

they got to prove we
knew those relays were...

which, good luck with that.

Yes, good luck with that.

We're done here.

LAURA: Come with me.

It's bitter.

Not paying you to

I got to go.

Okay, uh...

Well, it's 3:00 now. I'll
meet you out front at 8:00.

Have a great day.

(phone beeps)

DAVID: You know,
it's... you know, there's...

different possibilities.

You know, there's
different configurations.

Multiple realities.

Different realities.

I'm saying.

It's this thing, t-the
multiple worlds theory,

from, like, quantum
mechanics, right?

(chuckles) And...

And-and-and, um...

- (door chimes jingle)
- Uh...

Every event,

the things we do, there's like
a million possible outcomes.

Choices! Choices.

And the theory is, that each
outcome actually happens. Hmm?

Like a tree growing branches,

and-and each branch is,
like, an alternate timeline.

DAVID: So right
now, you're in class,

listening to me drone on and
on about-about physics, right?

(laughs) But in
another timeline,

y-you skipped school.

Y-You've gone to
watch Point Break.

(sirens wailing, guns firing)


Or you're in the
hospital with leukemia.

(monitor beeping)

And, I mean,
this reality, right,

w-we're sitting here,
eating whatever,

bullshit cold fries, right?


But i-in another timeline,

I'm, like... I'm,
like, a billionaire.

I'm a billionaire.

Or-or homeless.

Or-or married

in the suburbs
with, like, 2.3 kids.

(birds chirping)



And every time each
me makes a decision,

or something happens
where the future could, like,

go in different directions,

another branch springs up.

And that branch makes branches,

and that branch makes branches,

and that branch makes branches,

and that branch makes branches.


(sighs softly)


- (laughs)
- BOY: Daddy, Daddy, Daddy!

GIRL: We want waffles.

- BOY: Waffles!
- Waffles!

(laughing): Waffles!

(laughter echoes)

And that branch makes branches.

See what I'm saying?

It's a lot of branches.

(seabirds squawking)

AMY (echoing): David.

No, that's...

Good job.

"Good job"?

No, I'm... That-that's great.


I'm happy for you.

You're sweet, but...

I mean, I don't know for sure.

Henry. (chuckles)

(sighs) But who knows?

Maybe, you and Philly?

- Eh... (scoffs)
- (both chuckle)

You know, she's nice, though.

You know?

I think she-she gets you.

(dog barks in distance)

No, that-that's... no.

That's dumb. I'm...
That's not gonna...

Well, why can't you have a...

what everyone else has?

A-a nice home, a family...

Because I'm sick.

DROOG 1: Oh, look at
him there, my lovelies,

sleeping the sleep
of forgotten men.


Wakey, wakey, grandpa.



Did he send you?

(inhales sharply)

Is he here?

DROOG 2: Nobody sent us.

DROOG 1: Except the Lord.

- The Lord above...
- Mm-hmm.

Who says he can't
stand the smell anymore.

Huh? Piss off, then.

Ho, ho, ho, ho!



Or just finish me off.

I have no use for
this world anymore.

Men on the moon.

And men spinning
around the Earth.

And there's no attention paid

Come on, let's get him.

Oh, long day.

Mama needs a cocktail.

Hmm. How was work?

Boxes, milk.

Boxes, milk.

It's a job.

What are you listening to, hmm?

(jungle sounds playing)

Nice. (clears throat)

Are you hungry?

I got a potpie at the market.

Can't take your pill
on an empty stomach.

No more pills.

I'm better now.

No more pills.

(pills rattle)


you're wearing two bathrobes

and you're listening
to jungle sounds.

I can't think when I take them.

I know.

But you don't want to go
back to the hospital, right?

You don't want to hurt anyone.



So, we will have
potpie and a pill.

I got cookies and
cream for dessert.

I'm not six.

So, you don't want ice cream?

I didn't say that.

(laughs softly)

(bird squawking)

And this includes
the China holdings?

Yes, sir.

As soon as you sign, you'll
be the richest man in the world.

You're thinking,
"How is this possible?

He was the coffee
boy. He worked for me."

Sir, I wasn't...

I can read your mind, Laura.

Yes, sir.

Sorry, sir.

God blessed me with a
gift, do you understand?

I am his chosen vessel.

In the ancient days,
mankind built a tower so high

that it threatened
to touch Heaven

and God cursed us
with foreign language.

Misunderstanding and
the inability to communicate,

but I know what's in the heart

of every man, woman
and child on this Earth.

Gone is the
confusion, the division.

I am the great uniter.

You're a saint, sir.

The money is a tool, you see.

Nothing more. Power.

Because without
power, who would listen?

Sir, your sister.

Excuse me.

I've been waiting.

Papers to sign. Always papers.

Is that Laura?

Why do you keep her around?

She's ancient.

She resents me.

I like that.

I need a new house.

No, you want a new house.

Harvey's screwing his masseuse.


You're screwing her, too.

I hate it when you do that.
