(MR. MURRY

SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY)

(MEG GIGGLING)

MR. MURRY:
All right,

think good thoughts.

Then on three,

let the good thought go.

MEG:
Yeah. That's good.

MR. MURRY:
I think

that's pretty, right?

That's gonna be a good luck

charm for us today, right?

Okay, Meg,

important question.

Van Halen or Bono? Bono?

- That one.

- That's what I thought.

- (GIGGLES)

- That's my girl. Whoo!

Oh, yeah! Stick your

tongue out, come on.

- Ah!

- (LAUGHING)

You got your frequency,

you got your voltage, okay?

They're like a salt silica, right?

You don't wanna eat it.

- Just go crazy with it.

- Yeah. (GIGGLES)

...this little gizmo

right here,

and we're gonna

choose a frequency.

We're gonna choose

the frequency.

You would intently

watch this plate.

Let's see what happens

to the sand.

Because very interesting,

magical things

- will happen to the sand.

- MEG:
Whoa!

(CHUCKLES)

So...

are you ready to meet

your new brother?

MEG:
Do you think

we'll like each other,

like real brothers

and sisters?

I think we'll all

love each other.

Out of this wide,

wide universe...

this huge universe...

with all these brothers

and sisters and moms

and dads...

he found us.

And we found each other.

That's pretty rare.

That's pretty cool.

Okay, so...

This is our love.

Don't worry.

It's not gone.

It's just...

It's just enfolded.

Love is always there.

Even if you don't feel it...

it's always there for you.

(KISSES)

(THUNDER RUMBLING)

Not gone...

just enfolded.

(THUNDER CONTINUES RUMBLING)

(MAN SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY

ON RADIO)

MEG:
Hey.

Hi, Meg.

Let's be exclusive.

What?

That's my new word

for the day. Exclusive.

Do you like it?

Love it, Biscuits.

(THUNDER RUMBLING)

Couldn't sleep either?

Why didn't you just come up

to my room?

'Cause I knew

you'd be down.

Hey. You made sandwiches.

And I'm cooking milk.

This is a lot of milk,

Charles Wallace.

It's good to be prepared.

You never know

who will stop by.

WOMAN:
(ON RADIO)

And I'm Michele Norris.

Tomorrow marks

the four-year anniversary...

of the disappearance of NASA scientist Dr.

Alex Murry.

Dr. Murry went missing

just a week

after publicly announcing...

They're talking

about Daddy.

...he could travel

the universe with his mind.

MR. MURRY:
(ON RADIO) 91

billion light-years traveled,

like that.

WOMAN:
(ON RADIO) Authorities

note there are still

no leads in the case.

- (SCHOOL BELL RINGING)

- (INDISTINCT CHATTERING)

(LET ME LIVE

BY KEHLANI PLAYING)

Everybody say,

"Hi, Meg."

ALL:
Hi, Meg.

Hi, Meg.

(KIDS CHEERING AND CHATTERING)

FEMALE TEACHER:

I mean, he's been gone

four years to the day.

He's probably just pretending

to be in outer space...

but he's really

hiding out in Tijuana.

MALE TEACHER:
I bet

it involves another woman.

Either that

or a Martian.

Seriously though,

something so horrible

had to have happened

to him.

To leave his kids

like that?

And just after they

adopted Charles Wallace.

They seemed so happy.

And Meg used to be so engaged,

and now she is a mess.

FEMALE TEACHER:

But the boy is brilliant.

- Absolutely brilliant. Oh.

- But odd, so odd!

MALE TEACHER:

I guess I would be too

if my dad ran away, huh?

Shame on you

for talking like that!

Uh... Oh.

My dear, I'm sorry...

CHARLES WALLACE:

And I'm not odd, you are...

because you think making up

mean stories about people...

makes you feel better

about yourselves.

Well, it doesn't,

does it?

Charles Wallace, we don't

talk to teachers like that!

And Meg might be a mess...

but she has more potential
