Script & Commentary

Scene switches to Cal’s hospital room. Grace is at Cal’s side while Ben is ending a phone conversation with Michaela.  

BEN: All right, thanks. Let me know when you find out where they took him.

GRACE: I don’t understand. Why is Michaela trying to track down someone from the plane? What does that have to do with Cal?

Ben does not immediately respond. He just looks out the window.

GRACE: Ben? What are you not telling me?

BEN: I don’t know if I can explain. I don’t think you would believe me if I could. I know I wouldn’t.

GRACE: Have you not been following the news story about the dead people who came back to life on a magic airplane? I’m ready to believe just about anything at this point.

BEN: Grace something happened to us on that flight. It keeps happening. Some people are seeing things, hearing voices.

GRACE: Ben, are you hearing voices?

BEN: You just said you were ready to believe anything.

GRACE: I am. I’m just I don’t know. I’m I’m trying to wrap my head around this.

BEN: Me too. And I know this sounds impossible, but Cal’s fever, I think it has something to do with what happened on the plane. Please don’t shut down now. Tell me what you’re thinking.

GRACE: The last time Cal got sick, you went down a rabbit hole looking for every remedy, shutting out the world, shutting out me, and so I spiraled and shut you out. I have replayed that again and again in my head over all these years. I want us to be different this time. I need us to be partners.

BEN: We are. I promise. But we need to know what happened on that flight, who’s behind it. Is it the government or one of the other passengers, some, I don’t know, fluke of physics. We need to find out

GRACE: No! We don’t. This is the biggest mystery in the known universe. There are other people trying to figure it out. Let them.

BEN: Grace, I need—

GRACE: Ben, our son is sick. He doesn’t need you to be a scientist right now. He needs you to be his father. I need you to be his father.
