triangle Script 대본 Roteiro Texto

Computer: Gold-class breakfast.

Gus: This is Deck Chief Gus Mancuso. Who the hell planted a tree on my ship?

Gus: Who did that?

Jim: I did.

Gus: Who are you?

Jim: Jim Preston.

Aurora: Aurora Lane.

Gus: Anybody else awake?

Aurora: Just me and him.

Gus: How far along are we?

Jim: Eighty-eight years to go.

Gus: Hibernation failure. They said that couldn't happen. Three people, three pod failures.

Computer: Grand concourse.

Gus: Two years, huh? Any more trees I need to know about?

Aurora: Look out!

Gus: Never seen that before.

Jim: These robots have been breaking down. This guy makes fifteen?

Gus: Fifteen.

Aurora: The breakfast bar went crazy today.

Jim: Yeah, and an elevator.

Aurora: Last week, my door broke. I was trapped in my cabin for two days.

Jim: You were?

Gus: Things like that don't happen. Not on this ship. There are 16 of these tech stations on every deck. Dock your slates. Data syncs automatically. Got it?



Gus: You take decks one and two. You take decks three and four. I'm going down to the hibernation bay, check our pods.

Aurora: Well, that should be interesting.

Gus: Ain't you supposed to be making your rounds?

Jim: I'm finished.

Gus: I checked your pod. The Problem is very simple. The clock chip's burnt out. It ain't supposed to happen, but pretty simple. My pod's more complicated. Bunch of system failures that all happened at the same time. Whole damn thing went haywire. Explains why I'm feeling so bad. But Aurora\s pod... You did this.

Jim: Yeah.

Gus: All this time, I'm thinking you're one lucky son of a bitch to get stuck with Aurora. It wasn't luck, was it?

Jim: No.

Gus: She knows?

Jim: She knows.

Gus: How long were you alone?

Jim: A year.

Gus: Still... Damn.

Computer: Data received. Data received. Data received.

Gus: Same as Jim's. System shutdowns everywhere, but no apparent connection.

Aurora: You saw the hibernation pods?

Gus: I saw them.

Aurora: So you know what Jim did.

Gus: Yeah.

Aurora: And?

Gus: It's not my...

Aurora: He woke me up. He took away my life.

Gus: I know, and I'm sorry, but there's work I'd

Aurora: It's murder.

Gus: You're right, Aurora. But the drowning man will always try and drag somebody down with him. It ain't right, but the man's drowning.

Jim: This one makes 16.

Gus: Yeah.

Aurora: Hey. You okay? You should go rest.

Gus: Yeah. But just a couple hours, and then back at it first thing in the morning.
