(MUSIC PLAYING)

MAN:
So without further ado,

ladies and gentlemen,

I present to you the governor

of this great state of ours,

dare I say the future President

of these United States,

(CHEERING)

please welcome Governor John Francis!

(CROWD CHEERING AND APPLAUDING)

Thank you. Thank you.

Thank you all for coming out

on this very special night.

Ladies and gentlemen,

fellow Washingtonians,

we live in dangerous times,

times riddled with adversity.

But it is only through challenges

that great opportunities

present themselves

to change our very future.

(MUSIC PLAYING)

Christ, I could use a stiff

drink and some SportsCenter.

These speeches are

starting to get a little...

Rote, sir?

Well, I was going to

go with soul-sucking,

but yes, now that I'm

running for President,

I guess "rote" does sound better.

(MUSIC PLAYING)

Come on, guys, is this really necessary?

Down.

Do I know you?

If you pull that trigger,

I guarantee you

my guys will not stop,

not until you're found,

captured, and killed.

(NECK SNAPS)

POLICE OFFICER:
Police, move.

Move, move, move.

(VOICE SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY ON RADIO)

(ELEVATOR BELL DINGS)

(GUNS COCKING)

Police!

Hands in the air!

(SWAT MEMBER)

Hands where I can see them.

POLICE OFFICER:
Hands in the air!

(SWAT MEMBER)

Watch out, he's got a bomb!

POLICE OFFICER:
He's got a bomb! Down!

- (SWAT MEMBER) Everyone down!

- POLICE OFFICER: Move, move!

(RAPID, HIGH PITCHED BEEPING)

(COUGHING AND SPITTING)

Jesus, baby.

Are you okay?

(GROANS)

(CONTINUES COUGHING)

I warned you. You can't mix

the grain with the grape.

Were we drinking last night?

Yeah, with the Andersons.

We had wine with dinner, then

you drank whiskey with Phil.

I have this worst headache too.

BRINN:
Oh, here.

(DRAWER SLIDES OPEN)

Here you go, tough guy.

(GRUNTS, SNIFFS)

Thanks.

(MUSIC PLAYING)

(SPEAKER ON TV)

Dr. Connelly, it's a pleasure

to have you here to

talk about the brain,

the body, and the connections that

you have made between the two.

Now, I have read about identical twins

being separated at birth that grew up...

I hope Jesse got the register fixed.

(SPEAKER ON TV)

Yet they have the same hobbies,

they wear the same clothes,

they have the same hair style,

even down to the same type of dog,

but you are suggesting

something so much more.

DR. CONNELLY:
Well, something

deeper in their DNA.

My research has shown in some

cases, these types of twins

can share some of the same

emotions and memories

due to synaptic, possibly

even telepathic, convergence.

(SPEAKER ON TV)

That's interesting.

What made you go down that path?

That aspirin actually helped.

BRINN:
Good, you look better.

(SPEAKER ON TV) Oh, when you

were in Southern California.

There you go.

(MUSIC PLAYING)

(FOOD SIZZLING)

So have you been before?

Like, would you wanna go, or... ?

WOMAN:
Ah, I'll check on my schedule.

Okay.

Here, pancakes there,

um, scrambled, there.

- SARAH:
Thank you.

- Sarah, I was thinking...

- No.

- Maybe when you...

No, Jesse.

- Just no.

- See what she does to me?

GABE:
Jesse?

SARAH:
It's 'cause you ask every time.

The bitch thought I wasn't good enough.

Do I look not good enough to you?

Jesse, honey, table six.

All right, I get it.

Wait. Uh...

Okay, all right, all right.

(BELL CHIMING)

Good morning, Gabriel.

Morning, Sheriff.

Brinn, how's it going, darling?

Not bad.

Oh, Gabe, Jesse said that

he can take me home tonight.

I got my cooking class.
