Rework sub done by willygeerts


(done on the previous work of 1337x-Noir)

Not the best sub but ok.


Take it easy, man.

We're not in the

jungle anymore.

Just gonna trade one jungle

for another, Simon.

Well, this place has

a little hot lady

That actually thinks

you're a pretty big deal.

Where'd she get that idea?

Well, hell, man, I told her

last time we were here.

Thank you.

What are you doing?

What do you mean,

what am I doing?

I'm coming.

You're not invited,

Especially in that

pink thing.

Hey, man, this is

rustic salmon.

My mama gave me this.

I told you,

You're going to

mess me up.

Look, what you need

is a witness.

What I need is

to do this by myself.

I'm coming, man.

In Ulu Tiram today,

our reporter, Matt Ellman,

And his cameraman,

Simon Porter,

Had a close call

while filing a report

From a rebel encampment.

After a few tense moments,

The rebel leader

agreed to talk.

Oh, he is so cute!

Lucky girl...

Dan! Dan!

Come on over here!

Look, it's

Jessie's man.

He's not my man,



we've known each other

For barely two months.

Two months?

Oh, you can get into

a lot of trouble

In two months,

can't we, Hal?

It's on the house,



Here's a toast

from tony and I.

To Jessie Machalan,

The best tour guide

In all of

southeast Asia.

Well, thank you.

Asia? Hell,

the world!

May she find

true love

Before I turn straight

and marry her myself.

Despite efforts

at brokering a peace,

The killing goes on.

Three long years in the jungle,

And these men show no signs

of backing down...

Hey, wait up!

Matt Ellman, reporting

to you from Ulu Tiram.

He's lying.

I don't think

Matt's capable of that.

He's lying!

He's not

in ulu tiram.

And what makes you

say that?


I'm right here.


This is Matt,



Hi, Matt.

Hi, everybody.

God, you smell good.

I missed you.

I missed you, too.

I hate it when you go off

on assignment like that

And disappear.

It's what I do,

But if anybody

could talk me out of it,

It would be you.

Excuse me,

Your champagne.


Hey, thanks,

But what's

the occasion?

You know, I'll let,

Matt take care of that.

No, stay,

have a few beer.

You know,

I'd love to,

But, I got to call my mom.

Yeah, you see,

when I win this lottery,

I'm gonna buy her

a brand-new house.

You're a good man.

Really, Jessie?

Because I find that people find


Good night,


Yeah, good night, and...

Make sure my boy

has a good night.

Sir, jewelllery,


Oh, yeah!

Come on, sir.

Wait here.

You're not going to run off

to the mountains again, are you?

Not in this lifetime.

Excuse me...






Matthew Ellman,

We have found you.




What the hell is this place?

Please, please,

please, please...

Please, please...


is that you?


Oh, thank God!

I thought

I was completely alone.

I'm sorry, but...

Do I know you?

It's me.


Deborah glass,

from Jessie's tour.



But you're...



Over here.

Oh, my God...

Is that a face you remember?

Not for a very long time.


What happened to us?

There was a bomb.

This girl

in the club,

She just...

She blew

herself up.

Oh, God, no...


Oh, Daniel!



is that you?





Oh, my God!

Oh, my God, I thought

I'd lost you.

I thought

you were gone.

Oh, no...

Look at you.

You're the girl

I married.


Is that Deborah?

Hal, is that you?

- Daniel?

- Hal?

What's going on?

Hey, where's


Shouldn't tony

be here, too?


Wait a minute,

why haven't...

Why haven't

you changed?

What the hell

is going on?

Where's Jessie?

I don't know,

But right now,

the thing we have to do is

Act like this is real,

This is happening.

Antonio and Jessie

must be here somewhere.

Let's stay together,

see if we can find them.

Yeah, but you don't

have to do this.

You know,

we're not your problem.

We all know Jessie.

She's cute,

but stubborn.

If you're missing,

she'll try and find you.

Why don't you guys

stay here,

Make a fire,

get warm.


I'll see if I can find

something to eat.

Hey, Bernie...

Hey, Bernie!

You know that guy?

I'm not sure.

He looked like

one of the junior partners

From our new york office.

Worked on the 82nd floor,

North tower.

Hey, Matt, wait up!

It's just me.

No bracelet?

I had one.

I remember waking up.

I was floating

in water.

This woman in robes

flew over me

And cut the bracelet

from my wrist.

Man, how friggin'

nuts is that?

I saw all of us...

Just before I blacked out.

You were all dead.


I'm sorry.

No, no, that's

a good thing.

That means tony

has to be here, too,

And Jessie.

And I detest

All of my sins, lord.

And I detest all of

my sins, lord...

What is this?

Some kind of


One way to find out.

Hey, Matt,

Let me try it.


Okay, they got me there.

That's weird.

I was just thinking

about how hungry I was.

Mm, that's

mom's meatloaf.

Excuse me, please?

May I share

your fire?

Oh, yes.

Yeah, of course.

I have gathered

some seaweed.

It may provide

some nourishment.

Anything'll do.

We're starved.

Can you tell me,

Am I dead?

That seems to be

the question of the day.

But that is not

an answer.

Only because I don't have one.


An honest man.

Your clothes,

Your robe...

You're a Bhikkhuni,

A buddhist nun.

Where do you come from?

I am from nippon, near kyoto.

I was born in the fourth year

Of the reign

of emperor go-reizei.

You lived

during the gempei wars?

That was

I'm sorry, I was...

Am a history professor.

This is amazing.

You're from

medieval japan,

But you speak english?

I have not

heard of this...


Before today.

It is like I learned it

in a dream.

That makes

as much sense

As anything does

in this place.

English is the most

widespread language

In history.

If I wanted everybody

to understand each other,

I'd rewire their brains

to install english.

But you didn't,

Which begs the question...

Who did?

Are you okay?




I know you.

You were there,

in the river.

No, you're mistaken.


Remembering faces is my job.

You were there, my friend.

I said you were mistaken,

And you've hardly earned

the right to call me "friend."

Just now,

you called a woman's name.

Who were you looking for?

Was it Jessie?

Jessie Machalan?

How do you know


My arm, sir.

Jessie Machalan.

Tell me

how you know her!

My advice, sir, as a gentleman,

Is forget Jessie Machalan.

Forget you ever met her.

Fast, fast!

They will be here!

Who? Hey! Who?

Who will be here?

My money.

I thought you said

this was going to be safe.

My money...

No. No money

until you show us.

Let's set up.

I can't shoot this, man.

My money...

Let's set up.


What are you
