Episode 18: Change of Plans

Chairman:
Dear Director.
Fade in to Maine in the locker room
Mother Of Invention Locker Room / Many Years Ago...
Chairman:
Your request for more bases in which to conduct your experiments was reviewed, with much reservation by our Chairperson. Project Freelancer has been entrusted with one of our military's most valuable assets.
With a tattoo of the Meta symbol on the back of his head, Maine is loading up and basically doing badass things in the locker room
Chairman:
Oversight becomes a much more difficult process, if your operations are not centralized. Nonetheless, we have granted your request. However, we reserve the right to revoke this approval as we see fit.
The fire from Sigma's avatar is extensively present in Maine's armor
Chairman:
I sincerely hope this does not happen, and anticipate you will not give us an occasion to do so.
Cut to Wash's POV in Recovery
North:
There you are.
Wash moans a lot while he looks around... I'll leave that one in blocking so it doesn't look like he's having an orgasm.
North:
Slowly... slowly.
Washington:
How long was I out?
North:
Only a few days this time.
Washington:
This time?
North:
Hyeh, after they removed it.
Washington:
Removed it? Mmm-
North:
It's gone. They're gonna remove all of them. They started with you.
South:
Hyeah, thanks asshole. The whole process is on hold now.
Washington:
What about Carolina:
Cut to Carolina on the bridge of the Mother of Invention, talking to the Chairman and Counsellor
Carolina:
I'm not giving them up, just because he's made a recalculation. You owe me this.
Director:
Carolina you are acting like a child. This is not about you, this is about the project.
Counsellor:
You would be wise to listen to the Director. Agent Texas has already attempted to steal Wyoming's A.I. unit. If she were to come after you-
Carolina:
Then she would get, more than she bargained for.
Back to the boys
North:
Carolina's had it, kinda rough. The Director's considering sending her to hunt down Texas.
Washington:
Hunt her down?
South:
She went rogue. Broke out of the facility in order to save her precious A.I. Little later we found Wyoming. Apparently she tried to steal his A.I. unit. Tried to get his equipment too.
North:
That hasn't been proven. Besides, that doesn't sound like her.
South:
How would you know?
North:
Just trust me, I know, and believe me, if she had done it, there wouldn't have been anything left of Wyoming to find.
South:
She's not a fucking monster, North.
Washington:
You guys are giving me a headache.
North:
Once they find Texas, they'll bring her back.
Alarms sound overhead
FILSS:
Intruder alert. Intruder alert. Breach in Security. Level Zero.
North:
Or, she'll come back on her own.
Cut to Texas and York breaking in
Tex:
Great job York.
York:
I swear this never happens to me.
Tex:
I'm sure you say that to all the ladies.
York:
Seriously, I'm way better at this than it seems.
Tex:
Look, we don't have much time.
Texas moves York out of the way and punches the lock, denting it back and opening the door
Tex:
I need you to find a way to distract them for me. Be careful.
York:
Gotcha. What about you?
Tex:
There's someone I need to see.
Cut to the present day, with everyone in the holo-room
Cuarto Mucho Secreto Holográfico / Present Day
Tucker:
Let me get this straight: you guys built an enormous room, capable of creating realistic holographic simulations, but you couldn't figure out how to walk across the canyon, to capture our flag.
Grif:
Actually Lopez built it.
Tucker:
Okay, now that I believe.
Simmons:
And, if you recall, we did manage to capture your flag? So you know, suck it Blue.
Caboose:
Oh yeah, well our team has most kills.
Sarge:
Teamkills don't count, bluetard.
Caboose:
You don't make the rules.
Washington:
Technically Project Freelancer makes the rules. And I say, Blue Team gets to add my kill count to theirs.
Grif:
Lame.
Carolina:
Listen up: we've got big news.
Caboose:
Hhu- you and Wash are taking your relationship to the next level. I knew it. The writing was all over the wall.
Church:
No. We found the Director.
In the holographic chamber, Church goes from translucent to opaque
Caboose:
Church! You're big again! What has she been feeding you?
Washington:
You know where the Director is hiding?
Carolina:
That's right.
Church:
He's holed up in one of his off-site storage facilities. Similar to the ones we've seen before.
Carolina:
But we have no idea what kind of modifications the Director may have made to the compound over the last few years.
Church:
Or, if he has any sort of security with him.
Carolina:
Essentially, we need to be ready for anything. So, let's go over the plan.
Tucker:
What plan?
Church:
The plan to take down the Director.
Grif:
Uh, I thought the plan was we help you find the Director.
Simmons:
Yeah, and now we found him. Good job everyone, way to hustle out there.
Carolina:
The plan's changed.
Washington:
So then, what exactly is the plan?
Carolina:
Infiltrate the facility, and neutralize all hostiles.
Grif:
Right. What's our plan though?
Carolina:
That is your plan. I'm counting on all of you.
Grif:
But you said we were the worst soldiers you've ever met. And you were right; you're very perceptive.
Carolina:
Look, I just need enough time to make it to the Director.
Washington:
So then we're just the distraction.
Carolina:
No, Wash, you're on lock duty, I need you with me.
Caboose:
Uhm, we have to fight all the bad guys by ourselves.
Tucker:
Fuck that.
Washington:
Yeah, Carolina maybe I should stick with the others-
Carolina:
Leave personnel decisions to me, Agent Washington.
Church:
Look will you guys quit complaining, and do something for once?
Sarge:
Son are you forgetting we saved your sorry ghost ass from the military?
Simmons:
Yeah, we almost died trying to find you.
Church:
Oh, boo hoo. Why don't you come back when you're on your second or third life. Then we'll compare notes.
Grif:
Wow. Fuck off, Blue.
Grif starts walking away
Carolina:
Where do you think you're going?
Grif:
I'm goin' home.
Church:
Oh that's great Grif. You know, we could always count on you to duck out when there's work to do.
Sarge:
Well you can count me out too.
Carolina:
What?
Sarge:
Don't get me wrong: bustin' into a military base on a rescue mission's a lot of fun. But I'm not gettin' turned into swiss cheese, just so the two of you can finish some personal vendetta. This ain't, our fight.
Simmons:
Took the words right out of my mouth, Sir.
Carolina:
Both of you, be quiet.
Tucker:
Dude, this is bullshit.
Church:
Tucker.
Carolina:
Be, quiet. That's an order.
Tucker:
Well guess what psycho, I don't take orders from you any more.
Carolina:
Well, what about now?
Carolina points her gun at Tucker, and Wash points his gun at Carolina's head
Washington:
Don't, do that.
Carolina:
Wash, what are you doing?
Washington:
Protecting my friends. Now lower the weapon.
Carolina:
You're siding with them?
Church:
Wash, I don't understand. We found the Director. We can make him pay. This is what we wanted.
Washington:
All I want is for you to leave. I've already been responsible for enough of their problems, in the past, and I'll be damned before I let you cause any more.
Wash walks over with everyone else
Church:
So that's it, you're just gonna turn your back on us.
Washington:
Epsilon, I know that it-
Church:
No, no, you're right. You know, I guess I should've seen that one coming. It's not exactly like you're, new to the concept, is it?
Sarge:
That's a little harsh.
Church:
But you guys? After all the shit you've put me through? I really thought at least you would have my back.
Grif:
Us, what the hell did we do?
As Church responds, he grows to immense size and turns red
Church:
You shot me in the head, you put a bomb in my gut, you killed me with my own damn tank, and that's just how we met!
Tucker:
Church calm down, what's your problem?
Church:
You're my problem! You've always been my problem! Each and every one of you, is just a problem, that I have to deal with, on a daily basis!
Tucker walks away
Church:
Guys...
Church starts shrinking, and Sarge gives the Reds a head nod and then walks away too
Church:
Guys, u- wait a minute.
The Reds have followed Sarge, and there's just Wash and Caboose
Church:
Caboose...
Caboose pulls back and walks away
Carolina:
Forget it Church. We don't need them.
Washington:
I don't know what's gotten into you Carolina, but you'd better figure out the difference between your enemies, and your friends.
Wash walks off
