The Purge (2018–…): Season 1, Episode 6 - The Forgetten - full transcript

Joe remembers the past; Miguel confronts Henry; Jane learns a dark truth about David Ryker.

Previously on The Purge.

Bracka? I'm Jane from the email.

No contact from this point on.
You'll get a text when it's done.

I've done something terrible

and I can't be responsible
for another person's death.

I have to stop it.

You need to leave this house.

Open the door, Lila. Please.

No. We need to hide,
Jenna. We need to hide.

No Stanton is safe tonight.

Stop! Miguel, Stop!

I loved you so much.

Once I Purge,
all this anger will be gone.

Don't let him get away!


He's mine.

If you see something,
do something.

Become the person tonight
that you want to be tomorrow.

Joey! Hey, Steve, I'm sorry.

Ike, do you mind?

- Hey, Joe.
- Morning, Pops.

- So?
- This guy.

How'd it go?

You got another date
coming up? Huh?

Go on, just...
You know, you call her up,

you ask her to dinner,
and you take her some place nice.

Can we talk about this later?

Ah, you're finally getting back out there,
you know?

Putting the bachelor life
behind you.

Enough, Pops.

- What?
- She didn't show.

Okay. I had a burger and left.
That's it.

Eh, stop wallowing.

You get back out there, you try again.

I mean,
it's like this place, right?

You put in your time,
show your worth.

Look, you're a provider, Joey.

All right? Any girl worth a damn

would be crazy to pass that up.

Don't wallow.

Let's see
what you got, tough guy!

Let's go. Let's go.

I'm in so bad shape.
What is that?

What are those?

Trick or treat!

We're coming for you,
pretty boy.

Come on. Keep running.
We're almost there.


- Come on, work. Come on.
- Polo!

- Come on.
- Rick, open it!

I'm trying, I'm trying.

Go! Go, go, go, go, go.

You can run, but you can't hide!

Oh, God.

They can't get in. Don't worry.

Hey. Hey, it's okay.

We're safe.

It's over.

No, it isn't.

We've got a real
Vietnam War tent

- straight out of Saigon.
- Uh, tie him up right over there.

With working rifles.

Come on, let's go!

- Give me the key.
- Take it easy, buddy.

Thank you.

Oh, wow.

This is...

So, I'm guessing this wasn't,
uh, the homecoming

that you kind of expected, huh?

Fuck you.

Oh. Look at you.

Do whatever you want to me,

but she doesn't deserve this.

No, no, no, no, no.
She deserves a lot worse.

- Don't hurt him, please.
- Shut up.

I will do whatever
I goddamn want

because it's my right to Purge.


David, are you here?



Is everything all right?
What on Earth are you doing outside?

I'm sorry. I know it's late.

Well, no.

I tried to call.

I kept calling,
and you never answered, David.

Yes, well, after we closed our deal,
I did a bit of celebrating.

I must not have heard
the phone, so...

Come in. You, uh...

You're all right?

Sorry, I...

I'm sorry.

I didn't know what else to do.

Do about what, Jane? I'm...

I'm confused.
I don't understand.

- David, I made a decision about tonight...
- Actually, you know, Jane.

Please, allow me to apologize

for making you work tonight.

Clearly, a woman of your stature

should have been at home
with her family, so I'm sorry.

Thank you.

I appreciate that.

Anyway, uh...

What's on your mind?

This place is secure, right?

Of course.
State-of-the-art Sandin Security.

Why? Were you expecting someone?

David, someone's coming
to kill you.

Lockdown initiated, Mr. Ryker.

Sector One, secure.

When did you know?

What are you talking about?

When did you know
that they were going to attack?

- I...
- You looked right at me,

and then you left
and went to her.

I wanted to make sure
you were both safe.

But you didn't, did you?

You left,
and you didn't come back.

Jenna, where are you going?
We're not done here.

Please pick up. Please pick up.

Hi, it's Lila.
You know what to do.

Do you still love her?

Can we not...
Can we not right now?

No. Answer me.

- It doesn't matter.
- It does to me.


No, I don't.

- I don't know.
- I can't believe you.

Do you know why I went
to that party tonight?

Why I was sucking up
to all those assholes?

Because we need that deal.

Not just me. You do too.

- You really believe that?
- Yes, you're goddamn right.

Jenna, I know
how important it is to you

to start giving something back.

To do some good for a change.

And I want that too.

I mean, we were 12 hours away

from changing everything,

so I closed my eyes
and I started counting down.

- And where the hell were you?
- Where was I?

- I was right there.
- Bullshit.

- You were upstairs trying to find...
- Shut up!

Just shut up, Rick.

Just... Please, for one second
and listen to me.

I saw something tonight.

Something I hoped wasn't true.

And it's been building...
I've watched it happen for a while.

And then the moment
you touched that gun...

I saw your face.

And I knew.

Tonight wasn't about me.

And it wasn't about us.

Tonight was all you.

Look what you were
willing to do.

I did what I had to do
to provide for this family.

Jesus Christ, Rick,
you almost shot a man!

Listen, I would've pulled
the trigger if I had to, Jenna.

I will do anything
for this family.

So that she doesn't have
to eat shit the way I did.

Hearing kids
call her "white trash."

Buying groceries
with food stamps,

or clothes at Goodwill.
That shit is in my bones.

And I won't go back, all right?
I'll do whatever it takes.

Don't act
like I'm some spoiled brat.

I didn't grow up like them.

No, but you didn't
grow up like me.

That's it. That's it, isn't it?

You got something to prove.

But not to me. To yourself.

Getting that deal done,
it somehow means that you've...

You've made it.

I just don't like
the person it makes you.

Ever since we met Stanton,

I've watched the man
I fell in love with

turn into something
that scares me.

Yeah? Is that why
you left me there?

To die?

Because you were scared?

It wasn't so you could
just run off

- with your girlfriend?
- Rick!

Rick, you are
not listening to me.

It's not about Lila.
It's about you.

I miss the person
who would've done anything

to protect his family
from those people tonight.

Not become one of them.

That's the man I love.

That's the man I miss.


Whoo! You still with me?

Don't die on me yet, buddy.



What are you doing here?

You wrote me.

Yeah, to say goodbye.

I can't keep fighting, Miguel.
I can't...

This night has taken everything.

I just want to see Mom and Dad.

They're not ready
to see you yet, all right?

They want you here with me.

- Miguel...
- Pen...

Okay. All right.

Enough. Shall we?

You can have me.
But let my brother go.

- Pen.
- I'm trying to save your life.

If you give in, then I give up.

And I'll be right behind you.

That's really sweet.

But sorry, no deal.

I'm gonna Purge both of you.

I should've killed you
when I had the chance.

You probably should have,
but you know,

hindsight being 20/20,
that makes sense.

More like 10/10.

You know...

For the longest time,
all I did was...

Was think about
killing you both.

I went over it, like,
a thousand different times in my head.

And I imagined

what the world
would feel like without you in it,

and eventually, it just got...
It just felt right.

Don't fucking touch her.

You know,
we're not that different, you and me.

Yeah? How's that?

Well, we, uh, we both kill

because the government
says that it's okay.

"Hoo-rah, motherfucker,

All right, you ready?

Man, I gotta know.

Who are you?

All that matters right now
is that we get you inside.

Man, I know you.

- I don't think so.
- Yeah, I do.

You remember
those little candies?

Fruity and mint?


You know the ones
I'm talking about?

- Life Savers?
- Exactly.

That's what you are, man.

Can you walk?

A goddamn Life Saver, man.

I got you.

Hey, listen up!

We get the Lost Horse
shipment finished today,

first round's on me!

Next round's on you, right?

Come on. I'll see you later.

J.J., can I get one?

Good day today.

Tell me you don't think
she's your friend.

Are you drunk already?

Now, you listen to me,
all right?

She's management.

So, by definition, the enemy.

I'm gonna get you a cab.

She... She may smile at you,

but she's the goddamn
Grim Reaper.

Hey, J.J.,
can you get him a ride?

You got it.


Did you call a doctor
about that?

I will. Next week.

I will tomorrow.

Come on, you have to have
somebody take a look at that.

I'm fine, Joey.

Thirty years on the line breathing shit,
what do you expect?

We have good union insurance.
That's what it's there for.

I better hurry up and use it
before we go under, right?

We're not going anywhere.

Saticoy's been there
for 50 years.

Grandpa helped build the place.

We make stuff that lasts.

Nothing lasts forever.

I mean, sure,
that wheel will keep turning

- until they find a cheaper way to make it!
- Okay.

Hey, rise and shine.

Say goodnight to John, everyone.

We're dinosaurs, Joey.

And that meteor...
That meteor is coming.

It's coming.

Look, I see
what this night has done to me.

And I'm sorry.

I'm so sorry.
I got lost trying to make sure that...

That our baby's parents don't have
to struggle the way that mine did.

All right, but that's not an excuse,
you're right.

I don't need any of it.

I just need you.

You're my home, Jen.

Everything else
is just wallpaper.

- Here, let me. Let me.
- No, I got it.

You're gorgeous.

I'm going to bed.

I had a dream the other night,
we were holding her.

She opened her eyes
for the first time.

And suddenly,
she became a person.

And she... She looked at me

and it was the most
incredible thing

I've ever seen
in my entire life.

And you...

You gave me her and I held her

and I...

I started crying.

She just fit so perfectly.

It was like...

My arms were designed
to hold her.

And that's all I want.

That's all I need.

What if I don't believe you?

Come here.

I love you so much.

I could stay right here
and be happy.

But you want to keep going.

Until when?

When is it enough?

- I don't know.
- I know you want to provide.

And I do, too.
But for me, that means

knowing when you have
more than enough to be happy.

What I saw tonight,
the excess, the privilege?

Nothing is worth
ending up like that.

All that matters is who you are
and who you're with.

I don't want to lose you.

Okay, I'll...
I'll do whatever it takes.

Then stop climbing, or you will.

So first,

I'm gonna take your eye.

And then I'm gonna
take your sister.

But before you bleed out,

you're gonna see all of that.


Or half of it, at least.

Oh, ho, ho, ho, ho.

- So then get on with it.
- Okay.


You know when the, uh...

When the cornea bursts,

you'll see the most
spectacular colors.

So enjoy that.

Because after that,
it's all black.

You have any last words?


You missed a spot.

The key.

Your time is almost up.

You can purchase more time
at the ticket kiosk.


Your time is almost up.

You can purchase more time
at the ticket kiosk.

Good job, there's a live one.

I'm actually impressed,
Miss Barbour.

To be honest, I...

I really didn't think
you had it in you.

You don't understand.

This woman,
she's still out there.

She's on her way here.

Oh, I understand.
You paid for my murder.

Which is your right
under the law.

And I have to live with that.

But she not going to stop
until it's done.

Is... Is your family upstairs?

My family's in Paris.


We have to get ready.

- Now.
- I admire you.

For coming here tonight,
risking your life for mine.

Hell, I even
applaud the initiative.

Though I'm not quite sure

the board would
approve your promotion

even with me out of the picture.

Which was your objective, right?

Oh, I've watched you
waste your potential

year after year after year,

wondering when
you would reach out

and start taking
what was rightfully yours.

How rewarding it must feel

to finally do something
about it, huh?

It's not, believe me.

It's a brutal fucking world
out there, isn't it, Jane?

Do you have a gun?


- Of course I do.
- Get it.

I'll stay here until she comes.

I'll make sure she calls it off.


You really hired a woman
to do this, huh?

Well, nobody's getting in here,
Miss Barbour.

They can't.
Not without my permission.

So what do you say?

How about a tour?

You've got nothing to worry about,
I can assure you.

It's totally safe.

And as a fellow
art history buff,

I've got a few pieces
that I think

you're really gonna love.

Come on. After you.



Miguel, hurry up!

Stop hitting him. Stop, stop.

It's wrong! No!

It's okay.

It's okay. It's all right.

It's okay.

He's not gonna hurt you anymore.

He's not gonna hurt you.

He's not gonna hurt you anymore.
He's dead.

Come on. You all right?

We gotta move. Let's go.

Grab his jacket. Quick.




Quick, Pen, go.

- Quick.
- All right, all right.

Time's up.

Please exit the witch tent now.

- Thank you.
- Shut up. You're next.

Please exit the witch tent now.

Come on, we gotta go.

Come on, let's go.

Yeah, shoot him again!

Come on, Lila. Pick up, pick up.


Bring the dogs.

Bring her upstairs.



She's dead.

This building originally housed

one of the first daily papers
here in the city.

After it went defunct,

it stood abandoned
for nearly 30 years.

It's right here, to the right.

It was abandoned
for nearly 30 years

until I was able
to pick it up in an auction.

Right around the corner here
is one of my favorite pieces.

This right here,

is an original LeMercier.

One of only four he made
before he was committed.

What do you think?

- It's lovely.
- Better be.

Cost me 600 grand.

- David, shouldn't we be...
- Yes, no, no, no.

There's just one more thing
I'd like to show you.

It's on the floor below.

It's the pièce de résistance.

One of the finest
collections in the city.

And also, there's a full bath
and private bedroom.

It's all yours
until the night is over.

Consider it my apology to you

for making you work
on Purge Night, okay?


Don't touch me!

Jane, please.

Do you really want to spend
the rest of the night out on the streets?



I don't know.
I don't know what's over here.

Hey, Joe, what's up
with this shit?

Yeah! Yo, open it up!

- Christ.
- Eileen!

They did it.

I told you...

The meteor came
and they didn't even tell us to duck.

Open the goddamn gate.

There she comes.

So that's it?

We're getting the axe?

No warning.
What about severance?

I know that you're all angry.

I am too.

This isn't easy for anyone.

I saw the books.

We were out-performing
last quarter.

What the hell happened?

We were, but not
at a steady enough rate.

This just isn't sustainable.

So you pull the plug
and send us packing?

Forget it, Joe,
they got an offer they couldn't refuse.

Where are you sending our jobs?

Half to Mexico,

the other half
to the goddamn machines, right?


Now, I know that
some of you have questions.

Oh, we got questions.
Why don't you question this?

- I'm sorry, I...
- Oh yeah, "I'm sorry."

Sorry doesn't pay our bills.

Or health insurance.

We have families.

What are we supposed to do?

It's out of my hands.


- I'm sorry.
- This is not right.

I'm sorry.

I told you.

The Grim fucking Reaper.

Oh, no.

Come on.

Drama queen, man.
Look at you, look.

- Am I?
- But, what...

What is the $14,000 about?

He didn't help me with anything.

- This was 2015?
- This was two thousand...

Old Thompson man with no...

Hey, you all right?

You take your meds?

I can't afford
the good shit no more.

String him up, boys,
and go fetch me that little lady!

You won't get away with this!

Demonstrations erupted
in Los Angeles today,

as new restrictions
were placed on water usage.

Congress will convene
a special session to resume debate...

What is this shit?

As we can see here,
massive flooding along the coastline.

Oh, give me a break.

Thank you for joining us.

Markets took a major hit today

as U. S. Manufacturing
continues to decline.

Playing one is Zohan, Zohan...

That ties it up
at the top of the hour...

Every day, you show up

to your job on time,
ready to work.

You play by the rules,
adhere to the social contract,

because you know
it's the only way

to conduct yourself
in a civilized society.

And yet, all your hard work
and dedication is meaningless.

Society screws you over.

You get laid off.

Your boss won't promote you.

Your wife left.
Your date stood you up.

Over and over,
you give, they take.

So, now what?

It's simple.

Don't wallow in disappointment.

Embrace the healing powers
of violence, and Purge.

This year, every year,
take charge of your future.

I will be your guide.

All right, head up.
Act like you belong.

We should torch this place.

Shit. Come, quick!

Let us out of here!

All right, when I tell you,
start running.

- Miguel.
- And don't stop.

- No.
- You have a better idea?

Yeah. I do.

- Pen.
- Just trust me. Come on.

Going once. Going twice.

This woman is sold for 250.

And now we have a gentleman
who is lean,

and of average height.
A well-maintained beard.

You wanted to blend in,
right, so blend.

Let's start the bidding at $50.

Can I get 50?
Thank you, very much.

And 75. Right down in the front.

How about 100? $100.

- One hundred in the back.
- Penny?

- $200.
- OMF Penny?

Goddess Penny, what happened?

- Let's go.
- Penelope!


Split up and find them

before they can get to an exit.

They couldn't have gotten far.

Move, goddamn it!

Let's move.


Come on. Come on!



Bitch put up a hell of a fight,

I'll give you that.

But you should never, ever, ever

hire a woman to do a man's job.

Now, Miss Barbour,

I'd love to show you
the rest of my collection.

Right this way.

Looking good.


Mmm, mmm, mmm.

You're soft.

It's a living,
breathing art gallery.

You can look and touch,
but nothing more.

The rules are very strict.

There's no penetration,
no nudity.

And everything happens
over the clothes.

If all the ladies behave,
and keep quiet,

they all get to go home
in the morning.

Jane, when my father
founded this company,

times were simpler.

Men were men and women were not.

Then again,
he lived by the motto,

"no blacks, no broads,"

so I'm sure you can appreciate
how far we've come.

Thanks to a steady stream
of PC bullshit,

everything's become
a federal crime.

I tell a woman
I can't stop thinking about her,

she gets bent out of shape,
she runs to the Times,

I lose my company.

I've done nothing wrong
and my life is ruined.

But not tonight, Jane,
not tonight.


Tonight we don't
have to fight it.

We can give in and become
the men that we once were.

Ain't America great?

Here, here.

Anya here learned
how to play the game.

Oh, yeah.

How do you think
she got the corner office?

You're pigs.

Pigs. This is disgusting.

Nobody's being killed here,
Miss Barbour.

We're not, uh, animals.

- What are you then?
- We're human beings.

Purging, as is our right
as Americans.

- As men.
- You sick son of a bitch.

I should have never,
ever tried to call it off.

But you did, you see.

You did.

And that's what makes you weak.



No! Get off of me!


I've got an idea.

Come on.

Hey, you. Search over there.

The cart's going to the tent.
Let's go.

There! Right there! Get them!

Stop. Hands in the air.

Penny, here.

There they are!

Throw this, now.

Put your hands up!

Hands in the air.

Come on!

go up that side, right there!


Hands in the air.

You're trapped,
like an animal locked in a cage.

So, what's the answer?

Break free.

That's right,
"Give me your tired, your poor,"

"your huddled masses
yearning to breathe free."

That's on the Statue of Liberty
for a reason.

Because she's America's
symbol of freedom.

She holds a torch
to help us find our way.

That's what I'm offering you.

The torch.

Now come and take it.

Because we're all products
of our environment,

our upbringing, our history.

But the only way
to understand who you are,

is to recognize
where you came from.

That's how you'll know
what you're capable of becoming.

And now for your Purge
accu-view weather report,

brought to you by PSN,

the Purge Home Shopping Network.

Now we've got good news
for those of you...

Lila's dead.

Oh, my God.


I'm so sorry.

About everything.

God, this night...

This night is...

She knows what night it is.

- Jen, I...
- The baby knows.

And she hates it.

She's just like her mom.

You couldn't have saved Lila,
you know that, right?

You tried, but we barely
got out ourselves.

And I know how awful
you must feel.


But come on,
we have to protect our family.

No matter what.

Come here.

It's okay.

I'm hungry.

God. Jesus,
how am I hungry again?

You want me
to make you some eggs?


Do you mind if I ask her
if she would like

to place an order for carry out?


- One second.
- Okay.

Um... Mmm.

Hey, uh, your mom
and I were wondering

if you would like
some scrambled eggs.

She says she would
like them over-easy.


With bacon.

Over-easy with bacon it is.

You need anything else?

I just want tonight to be over.

I know. It almost is.


Let's go eat.

Don't worry,
they can't get inside.


Help me, please,
somebody's coming. Please.

Let me in, Rick!

Please, help!
