Episode 20: Reckless

Fade in to Carolina and Church at an unknown location
Freelancer Offsite Storage Facility / Present Day
Ah, there you go
Carolina:
How many?
Church:
None.
Carolina:
Really. You're sure?
Church:
Positive. We're alone.
They ride in closer, then start walking again
Church:
It's up here!
FILSS:
I am sorry, this is a secure facility. Only authorized personnel may enter.
Carolina:
FILSS? Is that you? What's happened to you?
FILSS:
This is a secure facility. Only authorized personnel may enter. Please, leave the premises immediately.
Carolina:
FILSS this is Agent Carolina of Project Freelancer. Acknowledge and go for secure.
FILSS:
I am sorry: I recognize that designation, but only authorized personnel may enter this facility.
Carolina:
Church?
Church:
Open the door, FILSS.
FILSS:
Certainly. Welcome back, Director. I did not expect to see you again so soon.
Carolina:
Thank you.
Church and
FILSS:
My pleasure.
FILSS:
Strange. I was unaware you had left Director. I will have to scan my files and find the error.
Carolina:
Left?
FILSS:
Yes. Since his last visit.
Carolina:
So you show the Director as inside the facility as well as outside?
FILSS:
Strange, is it not?
Carolina:
Yes. Strange. And exactly what we were hoping for.
Cut to everyone else back at Valhalla
Grif:
Well this is depressing.
Sarge:
Can it Private.
Grif:
What, I'm just saying what we're all thinking.
Sarge:
You didn't say you were fat and worthless, and we were definitely all thinkin' that.
Tucker:
Alright, you know the drill.
Simmons:
Do we have to?
Washington:
That depends, how badly do you want your flag back?
Grif:
Don't look at me, it's your turn.
Simmons:
Huhh-hhhh. I would just like to let everyone know that I suck, and that I'm a girl...
Tucker:
You know, it was funny the first few times, but this is starting to get depressing.
Washington:
Yeahhh.
Simmons:
...and I like ribbons in my hair, and I want to kiss all the boys.
Washington:
Hey, what else have you got?
Grif:
Nothing, that stupid flag was the only thing we had left!
Heh, the Blues have everything in the canyon including the carrot cake Donut and Lopez cooked
Simmons:
Actually, there's still one thing you still haven't taken.
Cut to the Meta's knifle being tossed on the ground
Donut:
Whoa!
Tucker:
*whistle*
Sarge:
Great ginsu gun show!
Washington:
Is that what I think it is? Is that, whose I think it is?
Simmons:
Stolen alien weaponry used by the scariest fucking mute in the galaxy? Yeahah, pretty much.
Sarge:
It's like, half knife, half rifle. What would you call that?
Tucker:
I don't know, but we'll take it.
Grif:
No, there is no way I'm giving up the Grif Shot!
Tucker:
Oh please, what were you gonna do, eat off it?
Grif:
Uh, actually dickhead, I asked Donut to mount it for me in the base?
Donut:
And you know I can't resist a good mounting.
Washington:
You've been hiding one of the most advanced pieces of technology known to man, so you can hang it, in your living room?
Grif:
Well when you say it like that it sounds dumb.
Washington:
That's because it is dumb!
Doc:
I think it's kinda cool. I mean, when I met you guys, all you did was stand around and talk. But now you can't walk five feet without getting wrapped up in some crazy adventure.
Sarge:
What's your point?
Doc:
I don't know; I just thought it was cool. I mean, come on, you guys've been through a lot together. Don't you want something to remember all the good times?
Tucker:
The good times - I was stranded in the desert.
Simmons:
We were almost killed.
Sarge:
I learned my entire military career was a lie!
Donut:
And I got shot!
Washington:
*whistle*
Doc:
Okay yeah, it wasn't perfect, but look what you all got out of it.
Sarge:
You mean the rifle-knife?
Grif:
You mean the Grif Shot.
Doc:
Sure there's that, but Sarge, you finally got to lead an actual military operation. And Tucker, you learned how to use your sword like a pro!
Tucker:
Bow chicka bow wow?
Doc:
You found a new team, Simmons got back his old team, I finally managed to keep a patient from dying-
Donut:
And in return, I didn't die.
Doc:
You see, in the end, we all worked together, and everyone got what they wanted.
Caboose:
Not everyone.
Grif:
...
Simmons and
Sarge:
...
Tucker draws his sword and steps up
Washington:
You realize that if you go after them, there's no promise you'll come back. This isn't a game, to the Director. He plays for keeps.
Sarge:
Ah well, this place was gettin' kinda stale anyways.
Washington:
After everything Church and Carolina said, the way they treated you.
Simmons:
Hey we gave you a second chance.
Grif:
Besides, if we quit every time Church started shouting, this shit would have been over a long time ago.
Washington:
We'll be out-gunned, we'll be out... everythinged. This is stupid. Just think for a minute before you do anything reckless.
Sarge:
Son, stupid and reckless is how we always get things done.
Washington:
But, Sarge I-
Sarge:
No! There's one thing you Freelancers always seem to forget: that's the fact that we manage to kick your ass time and time again. Oh sure you've got all your smart plans and your fancy technology and yer fancy training, but in the end, what has that got ya? Without a team you can count on, without your fellow soldier by your side, all that really doesn't amount to squat, now does it? So instead of standing there bellyachin' all day, just tell us, are you gonna keep playin' it safe? Or do you wanna get a little reckless?
Washington:
This has to be the worst idea, ever... but you can count me in.
Donut:
Me too!
Caboose:
Yes- and me! Oh, Church is gonna be so happy!
Doc:
I am too! Man, this is gonna be so cool; I love how inclusive you guys have become. I'm gonna go pack my medical gear for the trip. Ooh, don't rock the zealot!
Simmons:
Uh, guys? They've got a huge head start. How're we supposed to reach them in time?
Three airships drop down in an ambush
Airship Pilot:
Freeze, this is an ambush! You are under arrest for the theft of UNSC property.
Simmons:
What? We really are wanted criminals of the UNSC?
Grif:
Holy shit, Wash was right?
Washington:
Oh you've gotta be fucking kidding me.
Airship Pilot:
Surrender now, you are outnumbered! Uh well, technically you're not really outnumbered I think, I think we have the same number, uh, it's like one-to-one. But we do have airships! Fast, easy to pilot airships. Which we will now land, in order to take you to jail.
Cut to a few moments later, with Tucker piloting one airship with Caboose in the back, Grif piloting the second with Donut and Simmons in the back, and Wash piloting the third with Sarge in the back
Caboose:
Goodbye people we stole these planes from.
Airship Pilot:
Mother fucker!
Donut:
Mahan, this is awesome! Hey Simmons, who's the blue guy with the yellow accents? His voice sounds familiar.
Simmons:
Ohoh, right. Funny story about that.
We give a long shot of Valhalla as one of the bases shoots its blue thing off into the air, then cut to Church and Carolina inside the storage facility
Church:
I don't like this.
Carolina:
Me neither. Where is everyone?
Church:
That's not it. I've just got a weird case of... déjà vu.
We hear the following from off in the distance somewhere
Allison:
And don't worry, you'll see me again.
Director:
Play it again, FILSS.
FILSS:
Sir, you really should stop to eat. It has been several days.
Director:
Again.
Allison:
Leonard come on, stop it, they're gonna make me hop.
Carolina:
You're not the only one.
Allison:
Please, I have to go. Don't make me hurt you.
Carolina and Church enter a room of teleporters
Church:
This is it.
Carolina:
Ready to meet your maker?
Church:
I've got your back Carolina.
They go through a teleporter
Church:
Ohoh no.
Carolina:
Church? What is this?
Church:
He kept trying. He kept trying to get her right.
Carolina:
You think these things are anything like the real deal?
At least 72 Texes punch their hands and loosen their necks, then one of them speaks in the O'Malley voice from the end of season 5
Tex:
You have no idea what kind of trouble you are in, na ha ha.
