Green Lantern

Synopsis: In a mysterious universe, the Green Lantern Corps, an elite defense force of peace and justice have existed for centuries. Reckless test pilot Hal Jordan acquires superhuman powers when he is chosen by the Ring, the willpower-fed source of power. Reluctantly at first, he takes on the challenge after the death of Abin Sur, the finest Green Lantern. Putting his self-doubts aside, and spurred on by his sense of duty and love for his beautiful, intellectually equal, colleague, Carol Ferris, he is soon called to defend mankind from Parallax, a powerful, evil being who feeds on fear. Hal Jordan is the universe's last chance, as many Green Lanterns have been killed and the Corps is weakened. And he might just be the right Green Lantern for the duty of keeping the world safe from harm.

There's, uh, water in the tap.




The Ferris Sabre I I I is state-of-the-art

of artificial-intelligence fighter planes.

It has all of the flying and combat

capability of a human pilot...

...but with none of the human error

that comes with it.

Carl isn't just blowing smoke

to get a contract, general.

Your staff, these contractors, my office...

...we've all been part of this

from the ground up.

Well, I appreciate that, senator.

But today the rubber meets the road.

We have a simulated combat situation.

Two Sabres against Carl's two best pilots.

Carol. Was gonna do a little flying today.

What do you think?

I think you're late.

Yes, but that's only because I slept in.

I used to sleep in. Then I turned 11.

Let me give you a little heads-up.

I've gone up against these Sabres all week

and they smoked me every time.

There isn't anything you can do that

they can't do better, faster...

...and without disappointing women


I, uh, think we both know that's not true.

This is exactly why I didn't want you

for this. My father did.

I would've gone with Jensen.

I'd have too, but unfortunately

he's busy not being good enough.

At least he shows up.


...this test today, it's important.

I'm gonna make you look good up there.

Don't worry, okay?

Now let's get these pants off

and fly some planes.

Highball, weapon check now.

Roger that.

- Good morning, Mr. Ferris.

- Morning, everybody.


- We about ready, Tom?

- Yes, Mr. Ferris. We are go for test.

Sapphire, cleared weapons hot

at the merge.

Ferris Test, Sapphire. Weapons are hot.

Fly safe, Highball.

Um, no.

Goddamn it!

Tom, what the hell you feed those things?

F-35s, what else?

Wakey, wakey, Sapphire.

You got a shot,

now would be a great time.
