I was being an asshole.

I'm not a sack of shit?

No, you're amazing.

You're... You're a miracle, or...

or I'm just hallucinating from starvation.


This is... This is crazy.


- No, no, no, no, no.

- I'm fucking crazy

Hey, hey, hey. Stop. Stop. Stop.

Stop. Stop singing.

You weren't supposed to hear that.

Oh, I like that. Singing.

Okay, can you remember

anything about before, your life?

How you got here? Where we are?

How you saved me?

- Anything?

- Hey, what is that?

Oh, that, no. I...

Don't worry... Don't worry about that.

What's important is that

we find a way to get home.

Okay. I'm trying to remember.

What is home?

This is from home.

It's normally full of these things

called cheese puffs.


Um, sometimes, um, your fingers

would be coated in orange after eating it.

And your mom probably

told you to wash your hands,

but I bet you'd just lick it off

when she wasn't looking.

- Anything?

- What?


Wait. Wait, what's supposed to happen?

I don't know. I thought...

thought maybe I could tap

into some sense memory or something,

and, bam, the... the hairs would stand up

on the back of your neck,

and your heart would start pounding

as it all rushes back to you,

everything you left behind.

Your jaw hangs open.

The camera pushes in.

Cue the music.

- You remember "Jurassic Park"!

- What?

You were just singing the theme song.

Laura Dern, the brachiosaurus.

I don't know "Jurassic Park. "

You remember the song.


if you don't know "Jurassic Park,"

you don't know shit.

This is from home,

where all the other people are.

- Why is it out here now?

- Oh, it's trash.

It's everything people don't want,

so we hide it.

Why don't people want it anymore?

Well, that's broken.

That's empty.
