Episode 14: New and Improved

Fade in to the Project Freelancer locker room, in the past
Mother Of Invention Locker Room / Many Years Ago...
I just said that. Jerk
South:
What? This is bullshit!
North:
South, calm down.
South:
Calm down, that's easy for you to say, you already have an A.I. Who the fuck is she to take away our place?
Washington:
A- our turn will come. They've already put me back on the list for-
South:
What?
She kicks over a bench
York:
You ever notice every time you open your mouth you make things worse?
Washington:
Sorry.
South:
And two A.I.? Why is she so special, what's so special about either of them?
She punches Tex's locker, and the door opens and the nameplate falls to the ground
Tex:
Pick it, up.
York:
What're you doing in here, you never come in here.
Tex:
I've come for Carolina. Pick it up.
South tries to hesitate, then relents and picks up the half of Tex's nameplate that says TEX and walks out
North:
I- I should probably uh... I better go.
Tex:
Where is she?
York:
Look, Texas, I don't know if you're looking for a fight, or whatever it is you want, but now's really not the time. Carolina just went into surgery. We don't know when she'll be out so we're heading over to Recovery to wait for her.
Washington:
Yeah. Recovery One.
York:
Maybe you should come with us. ... Let's go. You coming Texas?
Tex:
Yeah. Go on York. I'm right behind ya.
Tex lingers holding a dogtag on a chain, then pockets it and closes her locker
Cut to Valhalla
Outpost 17-B: Valhalla / Present Day
Tucker:
This is the awesome new base? Looks the same as the shitty old base to me.
Caboose:
Oh you are gonna love it here! You know it's like our home away from home, that we can't ever get away from.
Tucker:
So let me get this straight. It's just two bases, in the middle of a box canyon.
Caboose:
Yes, but at one side, instead of a wall, there's an endless supply of water.
Tucker:
Wow, you guys really know how to upgrade. Let me guess, I bet this time, we've got a tank with eight pedals instead of six.
Caboose:
Ah don't be silly. We don't have a tank.
Cut to the Freelancers at the Pelican
Carolina:
Alright, what've you got?
Washington:
Not much, a few, shell casings, a dogtag-
Carolina:
I was talking to Church.
Washington:
Oh; sorry, I-
Church:
Hey what's up. Somebody call me?
Carolina:
Yeah. Find anything yet?
Church:
Oh, not yet, but the uh, onboard computer program's an old friend of mine. She's doing her best to help me out.
Carolina:
Good. Keep it up.
Church disappears back into the Pelican
Carolina:
Wash is there a reason you're just standing there doing nothing? Get back, to it.
Washington:
Uhm, right. Yes Sir, boss.
Carolina:
You can't keep your secrets forever Texas. Not from me. Never from me.
Cut back to the past, with Carolina in for surgery, awake
Mother Of Invention Medical Lab / Many Years Ago...
Carolina receives her implant, and we cut to Wash and York entering the Recovery room
Washington:
So, how's the patient?
Wyoming:
She'll be coming around any moment.
York indicates Maine in the background
York:
What's he in for?
Washington:
Probably for all the headaches he's been having. Did you ever get them after you earned Delta?
York:
At first. They went away pretty quick though. The other side effects were way worse.
Washington:
What other side effects?
York:
You know: bleeding from the eyes, ringing ears... inverted penis.
Washington:
Inverted what?
York:
Dgh- I'm just fucking with you, 'kay? Couple headaches, that's it.
Washington:
So what's different about Maine then?
York:
Hey, she's awake. How you feelin' Champ?
Carolina comes to, and sits up in bed
Carolina:
I want a match. Right, now.
