The Last Man on Earth (2015–2018): Season 1, Episode 8 - Mooovin' In - full transcript

Phil finds a cow but gets upset with everyone's reaction. He then steals it so he can get attention when he brings it back, but his decision backfires on him. Later, after Todd finds the cow, Carol puts the cow in her bedroom and moves in with Phil.

Previously on The Last Man on Earth...

Melissa and I...

had sex.

Good for you.

I just keep thinking about
if Todd wasn't here.

Todd is here.

Hey, bud, want to go for a ride?

Nice try, Phil.

I knew you were coming back the whole time.

So did I.

You know, one of the
positives about no people

is that we get to see the stars, huh?

Todd, thank you for helping
me move my dresser upstairs.

Ah, anytime, Carol.

It was fun, you know?

Gave me a chance to get some
one-on-one time with you.

So in a way, it was kind of a selfish move.

Such a sweetie.

Ooh, what's that, Melissa?

Well, someone went out and
got me a charm bracelet.

Was that someone's name Todd?

Did Todd get that for you or...?

- Yes.
- I got it... I got it for her.

- Todd.
- That's so sweet.

Phil's never gotten me anything.

Carol, I got you that rash cream.

I stand corrected.

"Phil's never gotten me anything."

As if.

Guys, I hope you don't mind

giving me the floor here for a minute.

I don't know if you know this,

but in my spare time, I like
to sculpt a little bit.

Anyways, I had a little time
on my hands, and, uh...

I made you all this.

- Oh, that is so cute.
- Thanks.

You have a real gift, Todd.

Isn't that amazing, Phil?

I'm blown away.

It's frigging so awesome, Todd.

Thanks, buddy. You know, I figured

we'd, you know, leave it out here...

you know, by-by the campfire.

That's a great idea!


Give me one right here.

Ah. Fell for that old one.

Such a sucker.

Well, and I'd fall for
it a million times over.

You guys are so adorable.

Yeah, really, really adorable.

Oh! Oh, G-God!

Oh, no!


I accidentally broke
Todd's awesome sculpture.

- Ah, the Phil fell off.
- It's okay.

Looks like it was a clean break.

It actually looks good without the Phil.

You know what, I can...
I can totally fix that.


What can't you do?


- Stop.
- Nothing.



- What?
- Oh, hey.

Can I borrow your DVR?

I've watched everything on mine.

Okay, but this one only
has Cake Bosses on it.

Okay, great.

- Spoiler alert...
- Oh, no, no, I don't want to...

- The cake...
- Don't.

- Won't fit in the...
- Ah!

- You done?
- Van.


I gave you so many clues that
I didn't want to hear that.

I just didn't want you to get your hopes up

about getting the cake there in one piece.

Okay, I understand. Thanks for telling me.

Hey, you know, we could commingle our DVRs

if we just lived together.

Carol, you know how I feel about my space.

I know, but the space isn't really helping

with our repopulation plan.

I mean, look at Todd and Melissa...

They've known each other for, like,

half the amount of time we have,

and they're already basically
living with each other.

Carol, there's a huge difference between

basically living with each other
and living with each other.

Well, can you at least fix
my door, for Pete's dragon?

Oh, it always comes back
to the frigging door!

Forget about it, you scrub.

I'll just get Todd to do it then.

Oh, God! Todd this, Todd that.

"Todd's my hero."


Todd would probably do a better job,

and he would do it with a
smile on his beautiful face.

Carol, I get no respect in this community!

In fact, the whole reason I came

over here in the first place
was to fix your door.

I thought it was to borrow my DVR.

Yeah, borrowing your DVR is a
subset of fixing this door.

Okay? See?

I'm taking measurements

right in front of your eyes.

There we go. Got it.

All right.

You don't have to fix my door, Phil.

I don't? Oh, thank God.

If you let me move in with you.

Oh, no, no, no, no, no.

I'm fixing this door.

Okay, there we go.

Off to the door store.

Gonna remember this measurement.

I don't know how much
longer I can take this whole

Todd lovefest!

"Oh, hi, I'm Todd.

"Let me kiss your ass, ladies,

"and do a bunch of nice things for you.

"Oh, hi, I'm Todd.

Check out this stupid
crappy sculpture I did."

You guys want to see a sculpture?

This is a frigging sculpture.

It's Thomas.

He's perfect, right?

I mean, I set up this
whole frigging community!

None of them would be here
right now if it wasn't for me.

And do I get any credit for that?

No, I don't.

Okay, here, I got another one.

It's Diego.

See, Todd, anyone can do this crap!

Look, Todd cannot come in
here and steal my thunder.

I mean, I'm the frigging President

of the United States of
America, for God's sake.

I just wish there was some way

I could remind them of how important I am.

Some grand gesture I could make.

Something spectacular.

It's got to be spectacular.

Got to be spectacular.

Come on, think, think, think.

Spectacular. What's spectacular?

What would really blow them away?

What's a...

You are... frigging... kidding me.

In a moment, I'm gonna open
this door, and you're gonna see

something that's gonna knock
your frigging socks off.

I mean, this is a game changer.

It's... a game changer.

I don't know how else to put it.

- Okay, but I have a question.
- Yeah?

Is this going to change
the game in any way?

Ha, ha, ha, ha.

Maybe this will answer your question, okay?


- Wow.
- I know, right?

What an incredible empty doorway.



Wow, this is really gonna change the game.

Yeah, I mean, all I'm seeing
is a whole lot of empty space

for one man living all alone.

It's sad really.

Carol, now's not the time.

Well, it's never the time!

- What?
- Holy cow.

Oh, my God!

I thought I'd never see
another animal again!

Hi there, little lady.


Well, look what I did, huh?

So how do you guys like your burgers?

Ha, ha, Phil, very funny.

The lady prefers steak?

Oh, you're serious?

Phil, we have to keep
this cow alive for milk.

Hey, we don't know how to take
care of an animal like this.

I mean, this thing will be
dead in, like, three weeks.

So let's just do the humane thing

and murder it now so we
can have burgers tonight.

You know, Phil, I might be
able to help us out here.

You've killed a cow before?

No. As a kid, I used to spend my summers

on my uncle's dairy farm.

So you know how to milk it?

I can get you milk, I can churn you butter.

Uh, I can get you yogurt, cheese.

Pretty much anything dairy
is at our disposal now.

Todd, you're the best!

I'm gonna start calling
you the milkman, milkman.


With all due respect to the milkman here,

who definitely deserves all this praise

for basically just standing around,

I found this thing, so it'll be

my call what happens with it. Okay, Todd?

No, no, no, no, no.

Phil, just because you found the cow

doesn't give you the right to
decide what we do with it.

Uh, yes, it does.

Clearly you've forgotten about

a little something called finders keepers.

Finders keepers?

Are you five years old?

And like clockwork, the losers weep.

Phil, we aren't children, and
this isn't a playground.


Come on, Phil.

Yeah, this is ridiculous!

Hey, hey, I'm not trying to
fight with you here, okay?

I'm just trying to tell you what I could do

if I was a selfish person.

But what I will do,

since I'm the ultimate team player,

is bypass FK and let
this little mother live.

Phil, that's very big of you.

It is a pretty big sacrifice,
especially considering

someone in our midst might be
severely lactose intolerant.

Are you lactose intolerant?


Ah, really?

But no worries, you know.

Just seeing the three of
you happy is my milk.

Well, aren't you a martyr?

Well, if I'm a martyr,

then I guess you're also gonna
have to call Christ a martyr.

Hey, Phil, you know,

I have a ton of grass in my backyard.

I'd be more than happy

to keep her back there if you want.

Nice try, Todd. No.

I found it; it'll stay right here.

Oh, so a barnyard animal
gets to move in with you,

but, uh, not your own wife?

Carol, this is perfect for the cow!

All these hard tiles for
it to hoof around on.

I mean, look at her, she loves it!

Wh-Whoa, where you going, girl?!

Looks like she's headed to Todd's.

Oh, good, good, good.

Good, good, good, good.

Friggin' Todd.

You like that grass, don't
you, little lady? Huh?

I'm sorry, Phil,

should we take her back to your place?

Well, I'm sure she prefers my foyer,

but, uh, you know, it's
been a really big day.

Maybe just tonight we'll, uh,
let her stay here. Sure.

Okay, well, let's get you tied up.

My uncle taught me this knot.

It's called a clove hitch.

Yeah, the old clove hitch. Know it well.

- Oh, you do?
- Everyone does.

Anybody want to learn how to milk a cow?

- Yes! I do!
- Oh, I do!

- All right.
- Here you go.

Here we go.

So, first you grab the teat like this.


You massage the teat,

and then you gently tug on it.

Did you really learn that
on your uncle's farm

or during your summers working
as a male prostitute?

That's a good one, Phil.

Yeah, it is a risqué motion,
but it gets the job done.

- Milk!
- We have milk!

Oh, my gosh!

Anybody want a sip?

- Yeah, I do! Oh, my God!
- I do!


It's good, isn't it?



Phil, you want a sip?

Uh, God, I'm-I'm sorry, Phil.

I forgot you're lactose intolerant.

Yeah, yeah.

I did say that.

Diagnosed lactose intolerant.

- Type 2, the worst type. Yeah.
- Sorry.

Todd, tell us more about cows.

Well, I don't know much.

I know that they can go

upstairs, but they can't come downstairs.

Oh, my Uncle Gary was the same way.

Maybe he had some cow genes in him.


And I know you can't milk a bull.

I learned that the hard way.

A story for another time.


Oh, God.

You know, the odor of this milk is

really triggering my intolerance.

Uh, you know, stomach really hurting here.

Okay, well,

the pain is worth it when I
see the smiles on your faces.

I should go, I should go.

Enjoy your milk that I found.

Anybody want a White Russian?

Oh, my God.

Todd, you're the best.

Let's get some more milk.

Oh, my God.

Okay, okay, okay.

Here we go. Yes, yes, yes.


Something about a
woman who can milk a cow.

Gross, Todd.

Frigging Todd.

Uh-oh, Todd, you big undeserving hero.

Looks like your clove hitch
was not cloved enough.

And now their precious
milk and cheese and yogurt

is going bye-bye.

And who's to blame?


Come on, come on.

Come on, heel, heel.

Mush, mush.

God, I never thought I'd be
excited about a bowl of cereal.

I know. I don't know if I can wait.

Can we just go out to the cow

- and milk it directly into the bowl?
- Guys!

The cow's gone!

- What?!
- It's gone!

Look, I know you guys are
questioning my decision here,

but this is something I had to do.

I got to reclaim this victory.

And that's why I got to go
twice-baked potato on their ass.

That's a weird analogy; let me explain.

You bake a potato once, it's delicious.

You bake that same baked potato again,

and-and the flavors pop even more.

It's crisper.

It's just, like, an unforgettable
potato experience.

But I... hey, hey, hey.

Leave Trevor alone.

Anyway, you know, that's
all I'm doing here.

Baking this cow situation again.

You know, I bring the cow back home, again,

and I'm a hero again.

You hang in there, girl.

Just got to milk this a little bit longer.

Boom, I still got it.

She's not back here.

Hey, there, gang. I was just in town

getting this cute straw hat for the cow.

I can't wait to put it on
her furry little head.

The cow's gone.

Hardy har har, Carol.

But seriously, where is that cute girl?

She ran away.

Okay, okay.

This is, uh... wow.

Okay, uh...

Huh, hmm... huh.

- What?!
- I don't know what happened.

I mean, we went down there in
the middle of the night, right?

And sh-she was all tied up
securely and everything.

We woke up this morning, she was just gone.

I thought you said you
tied a good clove hitch.

I did! I mean, I... I-I thought I did.

I'm sorry, guys.

Uh, this is all my fault.

I feel like I really let us down here.

Well, this sucks!

I can't go back to cereal and water.

I need cheese.

Guys, look at me and listen to me.

I know we're all frustrated,
but hear this, okay?

We have to fight the
very natural temptation

to assign blame right now.

Blaming Todd is not gonna be productive.

No one's blaming Todd.

That's the spirit, Meliss, okay?

And I want us to all keep not blaming Todd.

He's suffering enough right now.

Because mathematically,

100% of the blame lies at his feet.

Hundred percent.

This is not your fault.

And yet, at the same time, it is. Hmm.

But, hey, no worries.

- I got this.
- What?

I'm gonna go find that cow, okay?

So you guys just hang here and relax, okay?

Ah, Phil, l-let me help
in some way, please.

Hey, hey, I got this.

I found it the first time,
I can find it again.

Trust me.

You know exactly where that
cow is, don't you, Phil?


I do not.

You're lying.

Where were you this morning?

Where was I this morning?!

I was getting this hat for the cow

this morning at a hat store.

And that is why I'm holding it.

Carol, help me out here.

Don't look at me, Phil.

If we lived together, you'd have an alibi.

I had nothing to do with this.

Then why don't we all go search?

Let's all search?


Yeah, okay.

Yeah, let's all search.

So, we'll each take a quadrant.

Okay, as president, I get first choice.

No, I'll take the first choice.

- But, Melissa...
- Where was that bar you showed me?


- Phil? Where's the bar?
- Mm-hmm?

Uh... the bar. Oh, geez, uh, yeah.

It's right, uh, right there.

- I want that one.
- Oh, okay.

Yeah, Phil, I'll take this guy right here.

Give Phil a big open section,

because he loves his space.

Did you guys hear? He
won't live with his wife.

- Yeah, we've heard.
- Yeah.

Okay, so, uh, I guess I
will take this quadrant.

Unless anybody else, uh,
wants to switch, Melissa?



Would you like mine?

Like, I'll trade with...

- No, we'll stay with our quadrants.
- Okay.

Okay, so it is about 10:00 AM

Uh, wherever that cow is,

she's probably hunkered down for the night.

So best we just

sit tight for now and, uh, you know,

hit it hard first thing in the morning?

If you don't mind, I'm gonna
start my search right now.

Uh, okay.

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Oh, the cow's gone.

Thank God. Thank God.

Where's the frigging cow?


Come on, where are you,
you old piece of crap?

How the heck did you get out of that bar?

Frigging Todd.

You found the cow!


Yeah, she was just right down the street

in somebody's front yard.

Good for you, good for you.

Yeah, girls are gonna be
real happy you found it.


See you back at the... yeah.

Hey, Phil.

If you don't mind,

I'm gonna tell the girls you found the cow.


I feel bad about the way
Melissa came down on you,

and I think it's the right thing to do.


Why would you want to do
something like that for me?

You really don't know, do you?

Know what?


you've done so much for me.

I mean, if it wasn't for those
"Alive in Tucson" billboards,

I wouldn't even be here right now.

But because I am, I'm with
the woman of my dreams.

I've got two great friends
in you and Carol.

I've got a cow that's
gonna make me milkshakes.

I'm just so happy right now.

That's all because of you, man.

Thanks, Todd. I mean...

I don't think I could possibly
take credit for finding that...

I found the cow!





- Mmm.
- Mmm.

So good. Mmm.

Oh, I've heard those sounds before.

Wink, wink.


Hey, sorry about flipping
out earlier, Phil.

Good job finding the cow.

Mm, guess I just got lucky.


That is good.

Wait, I thought you were
lactose intolerant.

It's my cheat day.

You guys hear that?


Ow! Damn it.


Oh, my God!

This is priceless.

So classic.

And remember, Todd said these
things don't go down stairs.

So this thing's in here forever.


I think the burn's more on you, Phil.

What? How so?

I'm not bunking down with a cow.

Big news, everyone.

I'm finally moving in with my husband.

Burn. No, but-but...


And just think, this could
have all been avoided

if you'd fixed my gol-dang door.

Isn't this great?

The best.

So what exactly happened
again with the cow?

It was a double clove hitch knot.

I don't know.

It's one of those freak
happenings, you know?

Here, I'll tell you
exactly how it went down.

I couldn't sleep.

So I went downstairs, and
I got myself a snack.

And then I went to the living room,

and I reread a Twilight.

Then I did some knitting.

Then I got drowsy, so I
walked back upstairs,

and I got into bed,
and then I fell asleep.

And I woke up, and there was
a cow in my face.

And that's exactly what happened.


Hey, it all worked out

- for the best, right?
- Yep.

- Good night, Mr. President.
- Good night.
