Transcript

  • 1. The Squeaky Clean Legacy, Chapter 17.3 “De Profundis” Part One
  • 2. Max:

A'er
midnight.

And
nothing
has
happened,
as
I
knew
it
would
not.

  • 3. Max:

Papa?

  • 4. Secundus:

Hello,
Max.
 Max:

But.
.
.
But.
.
.

 Secundus:
Why
am
I
here?

I
wanted
to
apologize.

  • 5. Secundus:


You
should
never
have
grown
up
without
me
and
your
 mother.
 Max:
Mama
has
done
.
.
.
.her
best,
I
would
say.

  • 6. Secundus:

In
other
words,
you
grew
up
without
either
of
us.

I
am
so
 sorry.



  • 7. Secundus:

It seems so unfair that I knew her for so long, and that you  hardly knew her at all.  I probably always loved her, before either of us  really knew what that meant. 
  • 8. Secundus:  I had to wait for a long ;me before she loved me the way I  loved her.  It wouldn’t have ma=ered, because she was first, last, and  always, the friend I loved most.

  • 9. Secundus:
We waited for a long ;me un;l we could marry. 
  • 10. Secundus:

It was worth it.  I wouldn’t have changed anything.  There is  no one I ever loved as much as I loved Cecilia. 
  • 11. Secundus:

Except for you. 
  • 12. Secundus:

I never wanted to leave the two of you.  There is only one  reason I wouldn’t come back, and that is because I couldn’t. 
  • 13. Secundus:

I
loved
you,
Max.

You
have
to
believe
that.

And
I
certainly
 didn’t
want
your
lives
to
be
destroyed
because
of
me.

  • 14. Max:

Mama
does
not
realize
you
are
gone,
Papa,
if
that
is
of
any
 comfort.

She
waits
for
you
to
come
back.


  • 15. Secundus:

Why
would
that
be
of
any
comfort
to
me?


I
don’t
want
her
to
 wait
for
me.

If
I
were
alive,
I
would
always
have
come
back.

But
I’m
not.


 She’s
stuck,
Max.

She
can’t
mourn
me,
because
she
won’t
admit
that
I’m
 gone.
 And
neither
will
you.

  • 16. Secundus:

Max,
please.

Please
let
go.

And
then
find
a
way
to
help
her.
 Max:

I

.
.
.
I
have
tried,
Papa,
but
I
do
not
think
it
will
do
any
good.




  • 17. Secundus:

Help
her
as
much
as
you
can.


 Two
last
things.

  • 18. Secundus:

What
the
fire
destroys,
the
fire
renews.

  • 19. Secundus:

And
goodbye.

  • 20. Secundus:

Goodbye,
Max.

  • 21. Telemachus:

Nausicaa?

  • 22. Telemachus:

Nausicaa,
slow
down!

I’ll
get
Gawaine.

Just
hang
on.

  • 23. Gawaine:

Yes,
Nausicaa.

What’s
the
problem?

  • 24. Gawaine:

She
is?

  • 25. Gawaine:

She
hasn’t?

Not
at
all?

Are
you
sure?

  • 26. Gawaine:

OK.

Hold
on.

You
need
reinforcements.

  • 27. Gawaine:

Knights!

Drop
everything.

  • 28. Gawaine:

We’re
needed.

  • 29. Gawaine:

OK,
Nausicaa,
start
over,
and
while
you’re
at
it,
explain
why
 you
didn’t
call
me
before.
 Nausicaa:

I
didn’t
know!

I
didn’t
know
it
would
get
so
bad.

  • 30. Nausicaa:

I mean, I knew she would cry.  I was expec;ng that. 
  • 31. Nausicaa:

But then she kept saying that she was geFng cold. 
  • 32. Nausicaa:

Elaine?
 Elaine:

Just
.
.
.
Cold.

I’m
sorry.

Can’t
get
warm.
 It was scary.  I was scared, anyway. 
  • 33. Nausicaa:

It just made Lenore angry.  Elaine kept shivering, and Lenore  got angrier. 
  • 34. Nausicaa:

We tried to make her eat something.  Something warm and  simple. 
  • 35. Nausicaa:

But she said she wasn’t hungry.  She just picked at it and then  she wouldn’t eat it. 
  • 36. Nausicaa:

And she was so ;red anyway that we told her she should just  go to bed. 
  • 37. Nausicaa:

She went to bed, but I’m sure she didn’t sleep. 
  • 38. Nausicaa:

She kept saying “so stupid,” and she’d stop and stare at  something that wasn’t even there, and then “don’t touch me.  Don’t even  TOUCH me.” 
  • 39. Nausicaa:

And then she’d run right back into the bathroom. 
  • 40. Nausicaa:

She says the whole thing makes her sick to her stomach.  She  won’t eat, and anyway, it comes right back up. 
  • 41. Nausicaa:  She’s been in bed for days.  But she hasn’t been sleeping. 
  • 42. Nausicaa:

She hasn’t eaten, and she hasn’t slept, and she can’t go to  class. 
  • 43. Gawaine:

And
I’m
asking
again:

why
didn’t
you
call
me?

Right
away?

  • 44. Nausicaa:

I
don’t
know,
Gawaine!

I
don’t
know!

I’ve
been
trying
to
help
 and
so
has
Lenore,
and
we’ve
been
watching
her
all
the
Vme!

We’ve
 hardly
had
any
sleep
ourselves
and
we
don’t
know
what
to
do!

  • 45. Nausicaa:

*snif*

  • 46. Parsifal:

Why
didn’t
YOU
call
us,
Lenore?

  • 47. Lenore:

Oh,
I’m
so
sorry.


I
thought
maybe
you’d
rather
I
was
looking
 a'er
Elaine.

I
thought
maybe
you
could
call
your
own
sister
or
come
over
 when
she
didn’t
pick
up
the
phone,
but
I
guess
I
was
wrong.

I’ll
know
 beYer
next
Vme.

  • 48. Gawaine:

Look,
are
you
sure
you
can’t?
.
.
.

 Palomides:

Oh,
hi,
Ian.

  • 49. Ian:

What
is
WRONG
with
you
people?

  • 50. Ian:
She
hasn’t
eaten,
she
hasn’t
slept,

and
she’s
been
throwing
up
for
 how
long?
Days?

  • 51. Ian:

If
you
have
a
doctor
in
the
family,
call
him,
and
if
you
don’t,
get
her
 to
one,
because
she’s
probably
dehydrated
by
now.

Which
I
should
not
 have
had
to
tell
you.

  • 52. Ian:

One
of
you
needs
to
get
her
to
the
doctor,
one
of
you
needs
to
 contact
her
advisor,
and
one
of
you
should
have
called
her
mother
a
long
 Vme
ago.


  • 53. Ian:
Do
it.

NOW.

  • 54. Palomides
and
Parsifal:

Um,
yes,
ok.

  • 55. Ian:

You
realize
you
have
everybody
majorly
freaked
out,
don’t
you?

  • 56. Elaine:

.
.
.
You
don’t
know
how
it
feels.

I
feel
so
.
.
.


  • 57. Ian:

Stupid?

  • 58. Elaine:

YES.

 
I
knew.

I
should
have
known.

Everyone
tried
to
tell
me,
and
he
didn’t
 love
me
at
all,
I
was
so
stupid
.
.
.







  • 59. Ian:

Don’t
even
go
there.

It’s
not
going
to
tell
you
anything
you
need
to
 know.



  • 60. Elaine:
“Stupid
Elaine.”

“Silly
Elaine.”
“Elaine’s
too
sensiVve.”


You’re
not
 that
kind
of
person.


  • 61. Ian:

Oh,
yes,
I
am
that
kind
of
person.

Everyone
always
said
I
was
the
 most
emoVonally
fragile
member
of
the
family.

My
sister’s
nickname
for
 me
was
“Gloomian.”



  • 62. Ian:

And
I
know
exactly,
EXACTLY,
how
stupid
you
feel.

  • 63. Ian:

About
the
only
difference
between
what
just
happened
to
you
and
 what
happened
to
me
is
that
I
actually
caught
her
in
bed
with
the
other
 guy
.
.
.

  • 64. Ian:

And we happened to have a house full of wedding guests at the  ;me.  Elaine:
Ouch. 
  • 65. Ian:

AND you’re already handling it be=er than I did, because I screamed  at my mother, jumped into my sportscar and went roaring off. . .   Elaine:  You?  Sportscars?  YOU? 
  • 66. Ian:
It’s
a
thrilling
story,
Elaine.

Don’t
interrupt
it.

  • 67. Ian:  . . .jumped into my sportscar, went roaring off, and got blind, stupid  drunk. 
  • 68. Ian:

Looking back on it, not the clearest thinking I’ve ever done. 
  • 69. Ian:

I did try to call a friend, but she couldn’t pick up the phone, so . . . 
  • 70. Elaine:

So
you
got
in
an
accident?
 Ian:

Yes.
 Elaine:

A
bad
accident?

  • 71. Ian:
Yes. Very bad.  Elaine:

I would never have guessed.  Ian:

The scars don’t show. 
  • 72. Ian:

I’m
not
here
to
tell
you
you
should
have
known
beYer
or
been
 smarter.

  • 73. Ian:

I’m
just
here
because
I
really,
really
wish
Opie
had
picked
up
the
 damned
phone.

  • 74. Elaine:

I
just
feel
like
everything
I
know
is
wrong.

I
feel
.
.
.
 Ian:

Scooped
out.

I
know.
 Elaine:

Everyone
says
“oh,
Elaine,
don’t
worry,”
but
I
feel
like
things
are
 never
going
to
be
the
same.
I
feel
like
I’m
never
going
to
be
all
right
 again.



  • 75. Ian:

You
won’t
be
the
same.

Anyone
who
tells
you
differently
is
lying,
or
 they
just
don’t
know.

You
can
never
make
something
like
that
unhappen.
 I’d
tell
you
that
you’ll
be
all
right,
or
that
you
won’t
let
this
affect
the
rest
 of
your
life,

but
I’m
sorry,
Elaine.

I’m
just
not
that
smart.

I
honestly
 don’t
know
how
well
I’m
doing
in
that
department
myself.

  • 76. Elaine:

But
you
listened.

And
–

you
didn’t
tell
me
what
you
thought
I
 wanted
to
hear.

  • 77. Elaine:

Thank
you.

  • 78. Ian:

Later,
Drama
Queen.


And
go
take
a
bath.

You
know
how
I
said
you
 didn’t
smell
bad?

You’ll
make
a
liar
of
me
if
you
don’t
get
friendly
with
 some
soap
and
hot
water.


  • 79. Gawaine:

Dad,
it’s
all
my
fault.

I
said
I
would
look
a'er
her,
and
I
failed
 all
down
the
line.


 Dinadan:

Gawaine,
I
don’t
think
you
could
have
done
very
much.

You
 can’t
warn
someone
away
from
heartbreak.

It’s
devastaVng,
and
you
go
 there
alone.
I
know
that
first
hand.

I
hoped
my
children
never
would.


  • 80. Dinadan:

I
had
hoped
that
NONE
of
my
children
ever
would.
 All
we
can
do
now
is
help
her
pick
up
the
pieces.

  • 81. Penelope:

Elaine,
we’re
here
to
take
you
home
for
the
weekend.

  • 82. Penelope:

Honey?

  • 83. Penelope:
Taffy just had her ki=ens. 
  • 84. Penelope:

They’re such darling li=le things: Cappucino, Chocolate, and  Caramel. 
  • 85. Penelope:

And Taffy is such a good mother. 
  • 86. Penelope:

Don’t
you
want
to
come
home
and
play
with
the
kiYens?

  • 87. Dinadan:

Come
home
and
let
us
take
care
of
you,
Princess.

  • 88. Elaine:

Thank
you,
Daddy.

I’ll
get
my
suitcase.
 .
.
.
Only,
please
don’t
call
me
“Princess”
anymore.

  • 89. Parsifal:

WHAT.
A.
CAD.

  • 90. Parsifal:

What
a
cad!

What
a
total,
uYer
and
complete
cad.

I
am
going
 to
unseam
him
from
the
guzzle
to
the
zatch.
 Gawaine:

Percy?

  • 91. Parsifal:

She
was
OUR
princess
first!

She’s
always
going
to
be
our
 princess!

How
dare
he!
 Palomides:

WHOA,
Perce.

  • 92. Gawaine:

Percy!

PERCY.

STOP.

It’s
too
late.
 Percy:

It
isn’t.
 Gawaine:

Yes,
it
is.



  • 93. Gawaine:

What
is
our
primary
objecVve?
It’s
to
help
and
protect
Elaine.
 We
have
done
a
really
bad
job
of
it
and
it
is
mostly
my
fault.

If
 dismantling
Angus
would
help
her
and
make
her
feel
beYer,
I
would
 already
have
done
it.

But
I
don’t
think
it
will.

I
don’t
think
Elaine
wants
 to
be
“that
girl
whose
brothers
beat
up
her
ex‐fiance.”

I
think
Dad’s
right.

 All
we
can
do
is
help
Elaine
pick
up
the
pieces.

If
that
means
sibng
on
 my
hands
and
waiVng,

then
I
will
have
to
swallow
that
down.


 Anyway,
that
is
what
I’m
going
to
do.

  • 94. Parsifal:

It’s
sVll
not
right.

We
ought
to
be
challenging
him.
 Palomides:

Actually,
no,
Perce.

Knights
don’t
challenge
louts.



  • 95. Palomides:  There’s nothing in the rules about making a few informa;ve  phone calls, though. 
  • 96. Dusty:

You
were
engaged?

You
were
taking
your
engagement
ring
off
 every
damned
day
and
you
didn’t
even
menVon
it?

  • 97. Angus:

It
wasn’t
comfortable.

It
was
chafing
my
finger,
and
besides,
I
 wasn’t
ready
to
tell
everybody
yet.

I
don’t
see
why
you’re
so
upset.

I
was
 engaged
to
Elaine,
not
you.

  • 98. Dusty:

Good
old
Angus.

You
haven’t
changed
a
bit.

Did
it
ever
occur
to
 you
that
maybe
I
didn’t
want
to
be
the
Other
Woman?


  • 99. Dusty:

You
really
should
have
thought
of
that.

  • 100. Angus:

Not
the
face.

Not
the
face.

  • 101. Angus:

Ow.

  • 102. Angus:

Sigh.

  • 103. Angus:

Why
does
everything
always
happen
to
me?

  • 104. On to Part Two --
