Cabin Fever: Patient Zero




What is your problem?



They're sick.

They're all sick.

Sir, you can speak up?

You need police, ambulance? Fire?

There's blood.

There's blood..


Mr, where are you located?

They're looking for us.


Mr, I can't hear you.

Please, speak up.

Find us.

Where are you?

Are you hurt? Wounded?

What is your location?

Again please.

Speak up. I can't hear you.

Where are you located?

The incidents in the States

were isolated.

Successfully contained.

We don't know how

it reached there.

Your inability to manage and contain

this situation is mind boggling.

Let me be frank, under your guidance we're now

standing face to face with a catastrophic shitstorm

and I am standing face to face

with incompetence.


May I have your attention please?

From here on,

the team is small.

No parents,

no family.

Anyone meeting that criteria,

please go the the exits now.

If something's go sideways,

I've never been good in sending flowers.

Pull it up.

Ground Zero was a non-profit housing

for Humanity's Project.

American tourists building shacks

for the poor.

Fatalities were discovered on site.

One anomaly.

The sample arrived this morning.


he's not a sample. He's a patient.

- Yes.

He's Patient Zero.

Mr Porter?

Mr Porter?

My name is Dr. Edwards.

We are..

on the verge..

of a global pandemic.

And you are..

the only known carrier of this virus

who's asymptomatic.

The good news..

is that it's not an airborne virus.

And the bad news is..

we have no way

of containing it.

Where is my son?

We're supposed to go

to North Carolina.

He starts school.

We have to buy books

and pencils.

Your son is dead, Mr Porter.

I think you know that.

You have..

an incredible


to do something special.

I can't help you.

I wasn't asking.

I don't know who the f***

you think you are.

Can I try a piece?

There he is.

There he is.


Yeah. Hola, amigo!

- Hey, como ests?

What's up, bro?

What the hell

are you wearing?

What do you mean?

Kate wants me to look sophisticated.

What's so funny?

Why were you so late?

Oh the transportation,

they ran a little late.

I got like an extra $600 on them, though.


- What do you think? It's about time we..

do the whole 30 footer boat,

maybe expand the dive shot?

Let's talk business after the wedding, let me just get through this first, alright?

- Alright.

We're late, we're so late.

Kate's whole family is waiting for us.

Come on, we gotta get going.

I'm glad you can make it.

What do you mean, glad I can make it?

Marky, look at me.

I wouldn't miss this

for the world, brother. Alright?

Bro, this one's taken.

So rude.

To Marcus' brother,

wherever he's hiding.

A warm thank you.

And I'd like to offer a special toast

to those who couldn't be here tonight.

Marcus' parents.

They'll be dearly missed.

But we are all family now.


You're the guy, buddy.

You're the guy.

Marcus, you promised.

- Promise what?

Oh no. What is he wearing?

Wait one second.

I'll take care of this.

I'll be right back.

Alright, who ate all the p*ssy?

This guy.

Hey Josh..

- Hey.

Come on, I think you've had enough.


- Hey.

Hey Marky, long time.



Guys, guys come on.

There's water right there.

What happened to the shirt I left out for you?

And the pants?

Dude, this looks really cool.

Is it good?

Good food?


Go, go,

go get your lady, man.

This is pretty.

We're gonna..

Why don't we get some fresh oranges?

Very lucky man..

How do I say lucky man?

Tengo suerte.

- Tengo suerta!


- Tengo Suerte.

Hola amigo. Como estas?

You need it to protect you.

No, gracias.

Believe me, take it.

We need to protect from the mysteries of evil.

Seora, gracias.

She's not trying to sell it to you,

she's trying to give it to you.


- Gracias.

It's a Pca.

It's for protection,

against evil.

From Santeria.

Like a..

Central America voodoo sh*t.

Beheaded chickens,


Gotta love the third world.

Ah, perro.

So cool.


Yo, check that one.

Yeah, not too shabby.

Why don't you take it

for a test drive?

Yeah right.

- Hola amigo!

Marky Marcus.

Your brother and I..

your two best..

your two lifers..

your two f*** ups, who couldn't afford

a real bachelor party back home..

have conspired to pull this off.

Bro, we've been planning this

for months.

One last night of freedom

with the old crew.

And a chartered trip to a deserted

tropical island.

Full of beers, suns,

and virgin b*tches.


- Beaches.

Sand, water.

For real?

- Have a good time, babe.

Wait a sec, so all that crap

about no bachelor party?

Was crap.

Hey man, hotel already loaded our bags.

- No.


Don't forget to wear sunscreen,

I don't want you sunburned in all the photos tomorrow.

I won't.

- And do not go too far north.

It's restricted waters.

Hey, if you're so worried,

why don't you come?

It wouldn't be a bachelor party

if I'm there.

Why is Penny going?

She's practically one of the guys,

you guys grew up together.

Besides, my family is having

this thing for me tonight and

it'll be terribly stiff

and proper.

She'd be miserable.

- Would she?

It's easier on all of us.

Go have a good time,

you deserve it.

You're a horrible liar.

You're beautiful.

I'll miss you.


- Okay.

There he is.

- Okay.


- Okay.

Let's keep it adjusted.

Tune time, tune time.

Three blind mice..

Three blind mice..

See how they run..

My mother used to sing

that to me.

I love children's songs.

Your children song

is a protest

against the wrongful imprisonment,

torture and execution of three Protestants

by Queen Mary

in the 1500s.

Porter, please.

You can't go days without

talking to anyone.

Please, talk to me.

Oh, you want to talk?


How's my wife?

Does she know

I'm here?

She knows about

her son?

Does she know

that he melted in my arms?

Does she?

Porter, stop.

They all ran after the farmer's wife,

and cut off their tails with a carving knife.

Porter, stop!

Don't put yourself through this.


I'm a US citizen,

I have rights.

I want to talk to the

American Embassy.

It's the US CDC law that requires

that you'd be quarantined.

You're a pandemic carrier.

We're not in the United States.

This is extraordinary rendition.

You can't just keep

experimenting on me!

Porter, you're not just

a carrier.

You're a possible cure.

You have a natural immunity

to the virus.

Try to focus on the good

that you're providing.

I've complied to everything

you've wanted.

You've poked and prodded on me

for two months.

If I don't talk to my wife

in the next 15 minutes

I swear to God, I'm gonna kill myself.

Do you hear me?

I'm gonna f***ing

kill myself!

I've spoken with Christina.


She knows about your son.

She also knows that you are

here with us in quarantine.

Obviously she's worried about you.

She wanted me to tell you

that she loves you very much.
