Whispered something

in your ear

It was a perverted

thing to say

But I said it anyway

Made you smile

and look away

Nothing's gonna

hurt you baby

As long as you're with me

you'll be just fine

Nothing's gonna

hurt you baby

Nothing's gonna take you

from my side

Nothing's gonna

hurt you baby

Nothing's gonna take you

from my side

Listen, I have been fixing

this stereo

since before you were born.

Okay. Move. Move.

Let me get back there before you

blow someone's eardrums.

These guys are coming.

On my way.

Oh, sh*t!

Mommy, you didn't change

the calendar yet?

Oh! Well, I was waiting for you

to help me. Ready?

- Mm-hmm.

- One, two, big jump!


Go for it.


Your, ah, your ideas definitely

gave us a head-start but

you know,

it feels good to be..

kind of doing our own thing.

See anything?

No. Just proof you guys haven't

dusted in about ten years.

Mom says you have to

set the table.

Yeah, after this level.

Your sister will play for you.

Or do you want me to?

I'm coming!

Hey, Dag.

- You know how to play?

- Nope.


Dinner bell!

- That should do it.

- What you don't want to..

You don't want to test it first?

No. We're good.

I suppose you're gonna

wanna gloat now.

No, I don't do this

for the recognition.

It's enough for me

that you know.


I can hold my breath under water

for 30 seconds.

- No way.

- Are you kidding me?

But her goal

is an entire minute.

Then you can perform

underwater heists.

A minute,

which her teacher thinks

she's gonna be able to do

by this spring.

Are you guys staying over

till tomorrow, Ethan?

Oh, I wish. We actually

have to head out in a little bit

and get the lab ready

for tonight.

Uh, what's tonight.

Well, with the kind of

energy draw

that we need for the project,

the only safe place

that we can really do it

is at the A.I. lab

which is conveniently

empty tonight.

What about my swim lesson?

Can we have a moment?

- Ethan?

- Yeah, yeah, I'm coming.

Listen, I get why you're upset

but please try to understand

where I'm coming from here.

We were just looking forward

to having you home.

Okay. But I'm only an hour away.

It's not like I'm...

We haven't seen you in months.


Okay. Well, I can..

I'll try to be better

about that. It's just..

I mean, you know

how I get when I...

What about your Aunt Susan?

Who's gonna pick her up


Ah, I don't know.

You guys gotta figure something

else out, I guess.

You need to get

your priorities straight.

That's exactly

what I'm doing, Dad.

Trust me, classes are over

on the 12th.

And then you guys have me

for the rest of spring break.

But tonight,

you've gotta let me go.

I mean, this is the first chance

we've really had

to test this thing out.

- Please.

- Okay.


Yeah. I guess

you better go then.

Thank you for understanding.

Uh, I think

we're gonna head out.

- Don't go yet.

- Mom, thank you for dinner.

- You're welcome.

- Yeah, don't go, Ethan.

See you guys soon, okay?

- I'm sorry.

- You're welcome. It's okay.

We'll see you soon.

Oh, I'm so sorry.

No, it's my fault, too.




Let's do this.

Hey, tonight's the night,

huh, Lightman?

Keep walking.

Break a leg, b*tches.

- Where's the shunt motor?

- The other case.

Careful. Careful.

We call it ELI. Short for

Electromagnetic Induction.

Imagine a world where

your phone never dies

or appliances

come without plugs.

You know,

we have wireless internet

so, why not

wireless electricity.
