Ash vs Evil Dead (2015–2018): Season 3, Episode 1 - Episode #3.1 - full transcript

ASH: Do you believe in
the existence of evil?

[panting] Help me!

- Oh.
- No!

- [screeching]
- [screaming]

30 years ago, I found
the Book of the Dead.

Now, because I read from the book...


...evil has found me.

- [snarling]
- [screaming]

You have no idea what you're doing!

Of course I know what I'm doing.

[speaking softly] I wrote this book.

- [grunting]
- [woman screaming]

Ruby is in Elk Grove, Michigan.

That's my hometown.

[smashing] Ash?

Hiya Pop.

[panting] I got a problem.
The book... it did something to me.

It changed me. [grunts]

Night night.

- [growling]
- [yelling]

That's our cue!

- [wailing]
- [both yelling]

Evil, if you show your ugly mug
in this town ever again,

I will take you down
and I will wipe you out!

[eerie music playing]

You know me as Ash Williams,

the hero who saved Elk Grove from evil.

For 30 long years, I've used
this saw on monsters and demons.

But those battles are won,
so now I use it to...


Slash prices!

- [upbeat music playing]
- [glass shattering]

At Ashy Slashy's Hardware
Store Emporium,

we got you covered!

- You want paint?
- [giggling]

We shake it till we break it!

[wobbling sound]

Ladies, you'll love his nuts!

- [audience gasping]
- [clinking]

What's better than a handful of my nuts?

- [laughing]

A long screw.

- [woman moaning]
- Whoa!

We got wood.

- [cash register bell dings]
- We got rope.

We got rubber! We got it all!

- Die high prices!
- [buzzing]

Goodbye high prices!

For that special someone,
we've got everything from

- "D" to "ildo."

Because at Ashy Slashy's,
service is literally...

- ...our middle name!



Perfection! And only 22 takes!

- MAN ON TV: Welcome back...
- PABLO: Yeah.

It's looking good, Jefe.

Marketing 101, Pablo.

- Know your audience.
- [indistinct chatter outside]

Look at them lining up out there.

- You're a badass!
- [Ash chuckling]

PABLO: You know I've never
seen a town lose its shit

over a hardware store before.

Well, it's time to wake up and smell

the lightly scented wax flowers, Pablo.

This isn't just a well-stocked
hardware store/sex-toy emporium.

No, this is a shrine to a local hero.

Those adoring fans are my peeps!

- [dramatic music playing]
- [indistinct chatter]

- [chainsaw buzzing]
- All right!

- Hey, hey!
- [cheering]

- Hello, Elk Grove!
- Hey, hey!

Are you ready for some hardware?!

- [loud cheering]
- Come on in!

Fishing supplies, aisle two.

We got guns, we got flags,
we got pornography.

That's a little further in the back.

Men, can't please your wives?

Better check out aisle seven.

WOMAN: Yeah!

- ASH: Same problem?
- No need to push, jeez.

WOMAN 2: Aisle 3 I think.

Hey, no need to push. Leave me alone.

And last up we have Amy,

who I'm told has made
a startling discovery.

I see here, Amy, that
you discovered this item...

In the mud.

- In the mud.
- [eerie growling]


- [dance music playing]
- [indistinct chatter, laughter]

- Well, I know. I'm sorry...
- [indistinct chatter]

- [clattering]
- [yells]

What I fucking tell you, huh?

How many times I got to tell you?

Pretzels are for paying customers only!

- Okay?
- [grunting]

Next time I'll use your
head as a fucking cue ball.

Who touched the T... who touched the TV?

How many fuckin'...

- [suspenseful music playing]
- [eerie growling]

- [glass shattering]
- [people cheering, laughter]

Hey, hey, it's me.

You were right, evil's coming back.

And here you've found a book
written in ancient Sumerian.

[howling in distance]

- Curious.
- Does "curious" mean valuable?

This appears to be some sort of...

descriptive passage.

Conda anu astratta alaktu...

- [Stanley continues]
- You know with most of these clowns,

I got to play hardball, but for you?

Hose clamps are half-off.

These are the best in the world.

You put them on, they grip tight.

They don't slip, slide, stretch,
or tear like other things.

- ...estaro ces reche.
- [Ash chuckling]

Sarr des kanda...

- [eerie music playing]
- [growling]


[growling grows louder]



- [banging]
- [all gasping]


Apparently you've found an ancient text,

known as the Necronomicon-Ex Mortis.

[creaking, splintering]

The Book of the Dead.

Is that... good?

The book, is said to hold spells

- and incantations that,
- [clinking]

if read out loud...

...could connect the demons
of the netherworld,

with our own...

- [shattering]
- [all gasping]

[wind howling]

- [smashing]
- [all screaming]


Most important thing about a hose,

is its width, and its length.

Mostly the length.

[static, test signal sounding]

MAN ON TV: Our scheduled broadcast
will resume in a moment.


I paid for two more spots!

Okay, we got two fish tacos.

- Bam!
- [man chuckling]

We got your hard drive.

- That's me. Thank you.
- Enjoy.

- MAN: Oh yeah.
- Oh! [grunting]

- MAN 2: I don't know...
- [people murmuring]

Excuse me.

Oh! Shit...

- [eerie growling]
- [groaning, panting]

- [whimpering]
- [growling continues]

- [eerie music playing]
- [all gasping, groaning]

[person coughing]

[guts squishing]

Who are you?

Well in Rome, they called me
mulier daemonium de igne.

Demon woman of fire.

And in Greece, they called me

ágria ti mitéra apó tin kólasi.

Fierce mother from hell.

But in these benighted times,
they just call me Ruby.

- [panting]
- I'll take that.

No! No! Wait! It's too important...

- [yells]
- [suspenseful music playing]

This is bullshit.

Whatever happened to free speech?

Ah, this was my best giant penis yet.

[snickers] Yeah.

- Thanks for talking me into this.
- [Rachel chuckles]

You missed a spot.

- Dick.
- Less.

[girls giggling, chattering]

Can we just finish and get out?

I'm in enough trouble already.

Wait till they see what
I drew on Perkins' car.

- Is "man-gina" a word?
- [laughing]

Oh, Rachel, please.

I just want to get through
the next four months.

Since when did you become
Miss Bourgeoisie?

Oh, it's simple.

I graduate, I can leave here.

I leave here, I'm not here,
and that's a good thing.

All right, you still haven't
fallen for Elk Grove's

"small town charms?"

Excuse me?

The whole town's excited
because their ex-psycho killer

is opening a hardware store.

- Kill me now.
- [growling]

- Could be worse.
- [growling continues]


- [girls laughing]
- We could be like them.

[wind shrieking]

Oh, yeah. That'll never happen.

Good, because if you did,

I would have to slit my wrists.

- [electricity buzzing]
- [coughs, laughs]


Oh, look. Cougie's back.

[eerie music playing]

Yeah, well, fuck off, Cougie!

Okay, we get it.

Costume, mascot, very funny.

You can leave now!

Hey, asshole!

- Go away...
- [electricity buzzing]



Okay, guy, now I'm mad.

[growling, snarling]

Jesus, what is that?


Probably just some varsity assholes

playing some bullshit prank!

- [growling]
- [both gasping]


Brandy, don't!

What is your problem, fuckboy?


- [blood dripping]
- [gasping]

[snarling continues]

[eerie voices chanting]

[lockers banging]


[both panting]

- [growling]
- [screaming]

[both gasping]

[suspenseful music playing]

[both screaming]


Help! Help please!

- [snarling]
- [screaming]

- [laughing maniacally]
- [laughter, chattering]

And that's the whole story.

- Hey, feller. How are you?
- Hey.

Ladies. Come on.

- [eerie music playing]
- ASH: A litlle somethin', somethin'.

There we go.

- [lively accordion music]
- Nickel for a tickle, huh?

- [girl laughs]
- What do you say?

[indistinct chatter, laughter]

I don't believe this, it's really him.

[phone ringing]

- Oh, hey. Hey, honey.
- BRANDY: Mom! Mom!

There's this guy at the school,
you've got to come

- help us, please!
- What?

- Hey, Pablo.
- Yeah.

Ah, I got to talk to you about
something else.

If this is about a raise...

Actually, you don't pay me
at all right now, but...

Son of a bitch!

Hey, whoa!

Lady! There's a line!

Wha...? You don't even remember me?

Well, the old steel trap
never forgets a rack,

but faces are a little fuzzy.

Give me a hint.

- [grunts]
- [women screaming]

I said a hint.

- I'm your fucking wife!
- [inaudible]

My what?

We need to talk.

[Ash grunts]

Lady, I don't know what
kind of coo-coo juice

you've been drinkin',
but if you're fishing for alimony...

One of your goddamn monsters
just attacked

our daughter at Kenward County High.

Daughter?! Ha!

You definitely got the wrong guy!

Demons made you chop off your hand.

- "I'll swallow your soul."
- [scoffs]

Good sex is 30 seconds
followed by a cheeseburger?

- Okay, maybe we have met.
- [sighs]

But in case you didn't get the memo,

me and my compadres,
we buried evil big time.

Elk Grove is officially
a demon-free zone.

- Jefe.
- Yeah.

I think she's telling the truth.

- [eerie music playing]
- [growling]

Dude, I told you to get that
shit lasered off.

Nah, I didn't do this!

It just happened outside.

I'm scared!

This thing is after
my little girl and...

All right all ready! I'll check it out!

- [suspenseful music playing]
- [tires screeching]

[lightning crashing]


Just like old times, eh, Pablo?

Except for the wife part, and no Kelly.

Actually, it's not like
old times at all.

- Just drive!
- Hey, easy for you sister.

You come waltzing into my life,

yapping about demons and daughters,

and I don't know boo about you.

- Candace Barr.
- Yeah, and?



- [woman and man yelling]
- Oh...

♪ I want candy ♪

- [Ash grunting]
- [laughter]

♪ I want candy ♪


- Give me some!
- ♪ Yeah...! ♪

Ah! My God!

Oh God! She's so good! Oh.

- [yelling indistinctly]
- [both whooping]

[both moaning loudly]

Wait a minute, Candace Barr.


[laughing] Oh no, Candy Barr?


Well, this daughter of ours,

I'll bet she thinks
I'm pretty special, huh?

Dream on.

I told her her old man
was some crack dealer

- who got shanked in prison.
- What?!

Well, it was easier than admitting

I'd hooked up with some psycho saw-boy!

Oh, okay, but I call
B.S. on the daughter.

I was using my lucky rubber
all through the odds,

and that sucker went 50 and 0.

Oh, oh, oh.

♪ I want candy, hey! ♪

Just drive!

[eerie music playing]

[ethereal growling]

- [gasping]
- [indistinct whispering]

[wind whistling]

[gasping, shuddering]


- [chanting in ancient language]
- [growling grows louder]

Candalier boncelo....

[chanting continues]

- [eerie vocalizing]
- [chanting continues]




[gulping, gagging]



- [vocalizing grows louder]
- [rumbling]

[doors open]

- God, that smell.
- [phone dialing]

This monkey farm hasn't
changed in 30 years.

WOMAN'S VOICE: The caller you are
trying to reach is unavailable.

She's not answering.

You actually went to school?

Yeah, these halls have
some sweet memories.

Met my first Linda here.

Hey, give me a second.

What are you doing? [sighing]

I'm sorry, I don't even know you,

but did I make a mistake
coming to Ash for help?

Ever since I hooked up with El Jefe,

I've seen a lot of weird shit go down.

But he's always had my back.

Well, almost always.

There was this one time
I got cut in half.

[whispers] What?

Yeah, but Ash went back
in time to save me.

It was so cool, but also really weird,

because when we got back,
nothing seemed to have changed.

[laughing] Maui Wowie.

It's my emergency stash.

I'll just put this bad boy away
for the appropriate time.


- [eerie groaning]
- [gasping]

[lightning crashing]

[thunder rumbling]

[indistinct whispering]

[suspenseful music playing]

[floorboards creaking]

- [both panting]
- [footsteps thudding]

- [Rachel whimpers]
- Shh, shh!

[footsteps thudding]


Whoever's out there, fuck off!


- Wow.
- She's not yours, dumb-ass!

[gasping] Mom!

Honey! Thank God!

- Back off, Mama Bear!
- Hey!

What are you doing?

The ink on my buddy went nuclear,

that means evil is just
around the corner.

So your little peach could
be a bowel-sucking hell beast.

Mom, what's the chainsaw
geek doing here?

Oh, honey, uh, I don't know
how to tell you this,

but Ash, he's-he's ah-he's your...

What she's trying to say is...

I'm your pop.

Father dearest.

The old sperm shooter.

- What?
- But you can call me Dad,

unless you're a Deadite,
then you can go fuck yourself.

- So come on now, demon-spawn!
- [both gasping]

Show Daddy what you got!

- [electricity buzzing]
- [gasping]

Okay, nobody move.

[heavy breathing]

Alleged Daughter,
who else is in the room?

Um, you...

the guy with the hair...

- mom, and...

Ashy Slashy, soon there'll

Sorry jailbait, my dance card

I'll have to squeeze you in.

[heavy breathing]

Well, looky who's back,

and seriously rocking the leather.

Who's the boy toy?

Kelly was right.

You are the prophesied one.

KELLY: This is Dalton.

He's with the Knights of Sumeria.

The who with the huh?

It's an honor to meet you.

I've been waiting for the chance
to battle this ancient evil

my entire life.

Yeah, he's kind of a fan.

Who's the kid?

Oh, believe it or not,
that's my daughter.

[chuckling] Sandy.

Ah, Mandy.


[sobbing] And fuck you.

We're still getting to know each other.

Okay, team, it looks like evil's back,

and Elk Grove is ground zero.

Kelly, Pablo.

Other guy, you up for this?

One for all, and all for one.

Uh, cute, but no.


Say it like you mean it.

Ghost Beaters are back!

Fucking A, right we are!

And evil...

oh, we're coming for you.

I think now is the appropriate
time Pablo.
