Ilene Andrews: [referring to Kong] The island is the one thing that’s kept him isolated. If he leaves, Godzilla will come for him. There can’t be two alpha Titans. The whole theory of an ancient rivalry stems from Iwi mythology.
Bernie Hayes: Welcome to TTP, Titan Truth Podcast. Episode number two-forty-five. Today is the day. Maybe the last podcast I ever record. And look, I know I said that last week, and maybe the week before, and a few other times. But, look, this is the point. After five years of deep cover at Apex Cybernetics, I’m finally taking my shot. Something bad is going on here. I don’t know what it is, but I’m about to walk in and download hard evidence and expose a vast corporate conspiracy. And, yeah, you can call me a whistleblower, but I ain’t just whistling. I mean, this is more than a leak. It’s a flood. And believe me, this flood is going to wash away all of Apex’s lies. You can believe that.
Bernie Hayes: [as Horace is takes a bite of an apple] No, don’t eat that! It’s incredibly unhealthy. It’s just all the GMOs. I mean, growing a second head could be useful. You have to let me know. Because me, myself? I can barely handle the one I got.
Bernie Hayes: [as Madison listen to his podcast] Oh, my God. I was there. Godzilla’s Apex attack. I saw it go down! You think it’s a coincidence that he reappears and just so happens to destroy that specific facility? No, no, no, no, no. No such thing as coincidence.
Madison Russell: Dad, I’m telling you, there’s something provoking him that we’re not seeing here. Why else would Godzilla flash an intimidation display if there wasn’t another Titan around?
Mark Russell: That podcast is filling your head with garbage.
Mark Russell: We needed a plan to keep peace with these things, and the best one we had just went down in flames. I don’t have any more. And the last thing that I need is to be worrying about you.
Madison Russell: Godzilla saved us. You were there with mom. You saw it. How could you doubt him?
Madison Russell: There has to be a pattern here.
Mark Russell: There doesn’t.
Madison Russell: A reason why he was provoked.
Mark Russell: There isn’t.
Madison Russell: How do you know that?
Mark Russell: Because creatures, like people, can change. And right now, Godzilla’s out there, and he’s hurting people, and we don’t know why. So cut your pop some slack, would you?
Bernie Hayes: It’s all about patterns and variables. Oh, wait, stick with me. I’m going to take you back to sixth grade with this, okay? Godzilla attacks when provoked. That’s the pattern. Pensacola is the only coastal Apex hub with an advanced robotics lab. That’s the variable. And add them up, and your answer is that Apex is at the heart of the problem.
Walter Simmons: I’ve been fixated on Hollow Earth for as long as you have. Your theory that it’s the birthplace of all Titans is fascinating.
Ren Serizawa: Your book was very impressive.
Nathan Lind: Oh, yeah? Well, I got about thirty unsold boxes in my apartment if you want some.
Walter Simmons: Godzilla has never attacked us unprovoked before. These are dangerous times, Dr. Lind.
Walter Simmons: [referring to the power source in Hollow Earth] I need your help to find it.
Nathan Lind: I don’t know if I’m the right guy for the job. Did you read the reviews? “A sci-fi quack trading in fringe physics.” Look where they put my office. I’m in the basement right across from flute class.
Walter Simmons: Finding this needle in a haystack is our best shot against Godzilla.
Nathan Lind: Well, I might have an idea. But it’s crazy.
Walter Simmons: I love crazy ideas. They made me rich.
Ilene Andrews: A power source in Hollow Earth? This sounds nuts, Nathan, even for you.
Nathan Lind: It’s there! We just need Kong to bring us to it!
Ilene Andrews: The second you take Kong out of containment, Godzilla’s going to come for him.
Nathan Lind: You said you can’t keep him here forever.
Ilene Andrews: No. Our meddling has already wreaked havoc on Kong’s habitat. No way am I letting you drag him halfway across the world to use him as a weapon.
Nathan Lind: No, not as a weapon. As an ally. To protect us, to lead the way down there.
Ilene Andrews: What even makes you think that he’ll go in?
Nathan Lind: We got to stop Godzilla. This is our only chance. We have to take it.
Nathan Lind: [referring to Kong] Wooh! Jeez, I can smell him from up here.
Ilene Andrews: Well, he can smell you too.
Jia: [signs, referring to Nathan] Coward.
Nathan Lind: What’s she saying?
Ilene Andrews: Just an Iwi expression. It means that you’re very brave.
Nathan Lind: Hey, use a light touch on the sedatives. He’s our escort. We can’t have him comatose when we reach Hollow Earth.
Ilene Andrews: What if Kong doesn’t go willingly? What do you do then?
Maya Simmons: [referring to the The Hollow Earth Aerial Vehicles] Forget about the price tag, which is obscene, of course. The antigravity engines alone produce enough charge to light up Vegas for a week. Feel free to be impressed.
Admiral Wilcox: Do I need to be concerned?
Ilene Andrews: Yes. They do have a way of sensing threats. And we believe that they had an ancient rivalry. The myths say that their ancestors fought each other in a great war.
Admiral Wilcox: So if they meet again, who bows to who, is that it?
Ilene Andrews: No, I spent ten years on that island studying him. I know this for sure. Kong bows to no one.
Maya Simmons: [as they watch Kong say “Home” in sign language] Did the monkey just talk?
Bernie Hayes: So what are they working on in such blackout secrecy, hm? This could be the thread that finally unravels the Apex sweater of conspiracy. You better believe I’m going to keep tugging. For now, I’m secure. Anonymous, and hiding in plain sight as I continue my mission.
Josh Valentine: To be clear, my brother can never know we took his van.
Madison Russell: Josh, to be clear, even if we got into an accident, I don’t think he could tell.
Josh Valentine: I just don’t think it’s a good idea, looking for some secret weirdo off the Internet. I mean, we just had an assembly about this.
Madison Russell: He’s not a weirdo. He’s a covert investigator. And he’s the only one looking for the truth about Godzilla and Apex.
Josh Valentine: So let him look. Why do we have to help him?
Madison Russell: Because, if we don’t, nobody else will. Are you coming or not?
Josh Valentine: Obviously I’m coming.
Bernie Hayes: I need my bleach in bulk! Because spy dust is real, people!
Madison Russell: Hey, you sell bleach?
Grocery Store Owner: Is this another one of those Internet challenge things? Because when I sold those kids those detergent pods, I didn’t know they were going to eat them. I’m still dealing with the lawsuits from that.
Bernie Hayes: Before we go any farther, I got one question. Tap or no tap?
Madison Russell: No tap.
Josh Valentine: Excuse me, what is tap?
Bernie Hayes: Water. They put fluoride in it. Learned it from the Nazis.
Madison Russell: Theory is it makes you docile, easy to manipulate.
Josh Valentine: Oh, I drink tap water.
Bernie Hayes: Yeah, I kind of figured that. But she does the thinking for both of you, so it should be alright.
