Ryan Phan: [enters the room as Tree and Carter are about to kiss] Dude, I am tripping right now.
Carter Davis: Yeah, no s**t.
Ryan Phan: No. No, no, seriously. I’m having that thing. You know? What’s it called? When you feel like you’ve already lived through something before.
Tree Gelbman: Déjà vu?
Ryan Phan: Yes, that. I feel like I’ve totally lived through this day already.
Tree Gelbman: Listen to me. The day reset when you died, right?
Ryan Phan: Yeah, some psycho dude in a baby mask attacked me. But it was just a dream, right?
Carter Davis: Tombs is dead.
Tree Gelbman: So is Lori.
Carter Davis: Then who’s the killer this time?
Ryan Phan: Hello. Will someone please explain what the hell is going on?
Tree Gelbman: Okay. Recap. So I was stuck reliving the same day, Monday the 18th, over, and over, and over again, until someone wearing a Bayfield Baby mask murdered me on the night of my birthday. I had no idea who it was, because I was such a crazy b**ch, and so many people hated my guts. So at Carter’s suggestion, I made a list of suspects. Turns out it was my roommate, Lori, who kept on helping a serial killer escape from the hospital, hoping it would look like he murdered me when, in fact, it was her all along, and all because she was jealous of an affair I was having with my college professor, Gregory, who was married. Yeah, I know. Pretty s**tty. But, anyways, I finally kicked Lori’s crazy a** out a window and killed her, which broke the loop, or so I thought. But now it only looks like it passed the loop on to you, and you’re going to be stuck reliving this day until we figure out how to stop it.
Ryan Phan: [sighing] Of course. I’m still dreaming.
Carter Davis: Wait. What?
Ryan Phan: It’s like Inception. It’s a dream within a dream.
Carter Davis: Bro, you’re not dreaming. Ryan, we…
Ryan Phan: Shh. I’m trying to wake myself up.
Carter Davis: [smacks Ryan on his crotch] There. See? You’re not dreaming.
Ryan Phan: Why did you hit my p**is?
Carter Davis: Why are you acting like this?
Ryan Phan: You smacked my d**k. That’s rude.
Carter Davis: I barely touched you.
Tree Gelbman: [picks up a baseball racket] Okay. Show me where you died.
Dean Roger Bronson: We’ve had four rolling blackouts, fried electrical circuits, broken bulbs all over campus. And it’s all because of your little science project.
Tree Gelbman: Wait. What science project?
Ryan Phan: [referring to the device that caused the time loop] The Sisyphus Quantum Cooling Reactor. We call it Sissy for short. You see all these? They’re proton lasers. And when they fire, they cool the centrifuge right here to almost below one nanokelvin. So basically, we’re trying to prove that time can be slowed down on a molecular level. It hasn’t worked yet, but we did find some promising data after the device fired the other night.
Tree Gelbman: When?
Ryan Phan: 12:01 AM, yesterday.
Tree Gelbman: Monday the 18th.
Ryan Phan: Mm-hmm. What?
Tree Gelbman: You created the time loop, dummy.
Ryan Phan: [finding out he caused the time loop] That’s impossible. That’s not what Sissy was designed to do.
Tree Gelbman: I don’t know what to tell you.
Samar Ghosh: Well, maybe we’re just discovering what it actually does.
Andrea ‘Dre’ Morgan: An unintended reaction. Maybe we thought we were slowing time, but what if we looped it instead?
Tree Gelbman: [to Ryan] Now you’re stuck in this day. Congrats. Oh, and by the way, you’re going to die, again, and again, and again.
Ryan Phan: Carter, tell your girlfriend to stop trying to scare me.
Carter Davis: Oh, she’s not my girlfriend.
Carter Davis: [Tree gives him an offended look] Well, wait, are you my girlfriend?
Tree Gelbman: Kind of.
Ryan Phan: Hey, guys, are you done talking about your relationship status? Because she just said I’m going to die.
Tree Gelbman: And you need to figure out how to close the loop before the killer finds you again.
Ryan Phan: But I don’t know how it happened. It just fired on its own.
Tree Gelbman: Danielle, hi.
Danielle Bouseman: Where were you?
Tree Gelbman: What do you mean?
Danielle Bouseman: You ditched our house meeting.
Tree Gelbman: It was canceled.
Danielle Bouseman: When?
Tree Gelbman: After I kicked my murdering roommate out of a window.
Danielle Bouseman: Exactly. Who’s going to pledge Kappa now that we have a death curse? We’re in crisis mode, Tree.
Samar Ghosh: Hi. I’m Samar.
Danielle Bouseman: [as Samar looks at her body] Hey, samosa, my head’s the middle one. Anyhoo, call me as soon as you’re done with your creepy little Comic-Con meeting.
Samar Ghosh: Did she just call me samosa?
Andrea ‘Dre’ Morgan: Yep.
Samar Ghosh: You think she likes samosas?
Andrea ‘Dre’ Morgan: Nope.
Ryan Phan: Guys, focus. I don’t want to die.
Tree Gelbman: Well, on the bright side, you’ll come back. I died eleven times.
Ryan Phan: Eleven? Hell no. That s**t hurts.
Tree Gelbman: I was thinking. It’s ironic. Here I thought I was stuck in the same day for some big cosmic reason. You know, facing my mom’s death. It had nothing to do with her. Turns out it was just some big scientific fluke.
Carter Davis: That doesn’t make it mean any less, does it?
Tree Gelbman: I guess not.
Ryan Phan: [after Tree kills Babyface] What the hell? I thought you were the killer. You should have said something.
Carter Davis: I was looking for you. Well, who is it?
Tree Gelbman: Only one way to find out.
[Tree unmasks Babyface to reveal it’s Ryan]
Ryan Phan: What the f…?
Carter Davis: [[he second Babyface killer Ryan is tied to a chair] You sure you don’t have a twin brother? Maybe you were separated at birth.
Ryan Phan: Of course I’m sure.
Ryan Phan #2: [regains consciousness] Oh, s**t.
Ryan Phan: “Oh, s**t” is right. Who are you?
Ryan Phan #2: Who you think I am, dummy?
Carter Davis: It’s you.
Ryan Phan, Ryan Phan #2: Duh.
Tree Gelbman: What the hell is going on here?
Ryan Phan #2: Look, I was trying to close the loop, but somehow I got knocked into a parallel time loop. We’re all in serious danger. The longer we exist in the same dimension, the worse things will get. It’s a butterfly effect. You have to kill him.
Ryan Phan: Me?
Ryan Phan #2: He’s going to create bigger problems if you do not stop him. Kill him now!
Ryan Phan: No, screw that. Kill him.
Ryan Phan #2: You’re wasting your time. Do it!
Ryan Phan: [to Carter] Dude, I’m your friend, not him. You know what? Screw this. I’ll just take care of it myself.
Ryan Phan #2: [as Ryan activates the reactor] Stop him!
Tree Gelbman: [as Ryan is trying to activate the reactor] Wait. Ryan, maybe you should stop.
Ryan Phan: [referring to the second Ryan] Look at him. He’s crazy. I’m the one who designed this. I know what I’m doing.
Ryan Phan #2: You don’t understand what you’re doing!
Ryan Phan: Shut up, fake Ryan!
Carter Davis: Ryan, this doesn’t feel right.
Tree Gelbman: Ryan, stop.
Andrea ‘Dre’ Morgan: [enters the lab with Samar] But a parsec is a measure of distance, not time.
Samar Ghosh: Okay, so now you’re going to call Han Solo a liar?
Andrea ‘Dre’ Morgan: No, I’m saying if a normal Kessel Run is…
Ryan Phan #2: Dre, help me. Come on!
Andrea ‘Dre’ Morgan: [notice the other Ryan at the reactor] Woh.
Samar Ghosh: Dude, did you dose my Yoo-hoo again?
[Dre shakes her head]
[Tree wakes up in Carter’s room on Monday the 18th, in her original time loop]
Carter Davis: Oh, hey. You’re up. Yeah, I wasn’t sure if you wanted to sleep in or not, so I…
[Tree checks her phone to see what date is]
Carter Davis: Tree?
Tree Gelbman: No f***ing way.
Carter Davis: Hey, I folded your clothes for you.
Tree Gelbman: [gets out of bed, opens the door and yells] Ryan! Get in here right now!
Carter Davis: Wait a minute, you two know each other?
Tree Gelbman: Yes.
Ryan Phan: No.
Tree Gelbman: Ryan, you dumba**! You sent me back.
Ryan Phan: What?
Tree Gelbman: It’s Monday the 18th! I don’t believe this. I just got out. How could you do this to me?!
Ryan Phan: Who’s this crazy white girl?
Carter Davis: Maybe it was a bad dream or something.
Tree Gelbman: You’re right. It is a bad dream. It’s a nightmare! This sucks! It sucks the biggest mega balls in the history of s**tty ball suckery!
Tree Gelbman: [picks up a pillow and screams into it until she calms down] I’m okay.
Carter Davis: You sure?
Tree Gelbman: Yes.
Tree Gelbman: He just needs to fix this, now.
Ryan Phan: This is a joke, right?
Tree Gelbman: Oh, I wish. Look, Ryan, we need to go to your lab, turn on Sissy, and figure out how to send me back.
Ryan Phan: How do you know about Sissy?
Tree Gelbman: Oh, my God. Just, let’s go.
[Tree walks off, Carter and Ryan look at each other in confusion, Tree comes back]
Tree Gelbman: Ándale, people!
Tree Gelbman: [as she enters her room] Where’s the cupcake?
Lori Spengler: What cupcake?
Tree Gelbman: The one you made for my birthday. The one you poisoned.
Lori Spengler: Oh, that cupcake.
Tree Gelbman: I’m serious.
Lori Spengler: Look, I don’t know what stupid joke Danielle put you up to, but there’s no cupcake. Sorry. Alright, I got to go. I’m pulling a double for Jen. She’s got the flu. Happy birthday though. Toodles.
Tree Gelbman: Something’s wrong.
Carter Davis: What?
Tree Gelbman: I don’t know. It’s different.
Ryan Phan: There were two of me?
Tree Gelbman: Yes. That is how this whole thing happened.
Carter Davis: You know, this kind of reminds me of Back to the Future II.
Ryan Phan: Totally.
Carter Davis: Right?
Ryan Phan: Mm-hmm.
Carter Davis: [as Tree looks at them cluelessly] You know, with Marty McFly?
Ryan Phan: Doc?
Carter Davis: The DeLorean?
Tree Gelbman: Sorry.
Carter Davis: Are you serious? You’ve never seen Back to the Future?
Tree Gelbman: No, I…
Carter Davis: How do you…
Tree Gelbman: Wait. Oh, my God. Does this mean that there are two of me?
Ryan Phan: I highly doubt it. It’s almost impossible to create a holographic universe. You’re probably stuck in a quantum cyclic dimension.
[Tree stares at him]
Ryan Phan: There’s only one of you here, because the other you got knocked into a parallel dimension somewhere in the multiverse.
Tree Gelbman: Okay, Ryan. Thanks for clearing that up. That was super helpful.
Ryan Phan: You never heard the multiverse theory?
Tree Gelbman: Do I look like someone who knows what a multiverse is?
Ryan Phan: [takes a napkin to demonstrate] Okay, look. This is our universe. Okay? Now, look. In theory, the universe has six dimensions. Now, if what you’re saying is true, then maybe you woke up on the same day, but not in the same dimension. That would explain the anomalies.
Tree Gelbman: So, how different are we talking here?
Ryan Phan: Well, it depends.
Tree Gelbman: [sees Danielle walking towards them] Oh, s**t. I forgot our house meeting. Danielle, I’m sorry. I just…
Danielle Bouseman: Hey, babe.
Carter Davis: You doing alright?
[Tree watches in shock as Danielle and Carter kiss]
Danielle Bouseman: [trying to walk around like a blind person] Did that look real? I’m auditioning for this year’s production of The Miracle Worker. Did you know Anne Frank was blind and deaf?
Carter Davis: Uh, Helen Keller.
Danielle Bouseman: Excuse me?
Carter Davis: Anne Frank was in the attic.
Danielle Bouseman: Oh. Whatever. All I know is acting blind is probably harder than actually being blind. I mean, the skill set it takes. Meryl Streep taped her eyelids shut just to prepare for a role. Uh-huh.
Carter Davis: [as Tree decides to stay in the time loop where here mother is still alive] Why the change of heart?
Tree Gelbman: Everything’s different.
Carter Davis: Different how?
Tree Gelbman: Wait, when were you going to tell me?
Carter Davis: Tell you what?
Tree Gelbman: About Danielle.
Carter Davis: Yeah, what about Danielle?
Tree Gelbman: Apparently you guys are dating.
Carter Davis: Wait, I thought you knew that. I mean, you guys live in the same house.
Tree Gelbman: No, I definitely didn’t know. But the bigger question is, does she know?
Carter Davis: Does she know what?
Tree Gelbman: One of her closest friends woke up in your bed this morning. You don’t think that that’s newsworthy?
Carter Davis: Nothing happened. I slept in Ryan’s bed last night.
Tree Gelbman: So why take me home?
Carter Davis: Because you were wasted. I was afraid you were going to fall, or choke on your own vomit like Janis Joplin.
Tree Gelbman: Okay. It’s fine. It’s fine. It’s fine. It’s fine. This is how it’s supposed to be. My mom’s okay. Lori isn’t trying to kill me. I mean, this is like the better version of my life, right?
Carter Davis: What are you…?
[Tree sees Gregory and his wife Stephanie arguing]
Carter Davis: Wait a minute. In this other dimension, were we…?
Tree Gelbman: I can’t do this right now.
Carter Davis: [Tree walks off] No, Tree!
Tree Gelbman: [wakes up in Carter’s room again] What dimension am I in?
Carter Davis: Huh?
Tree Gelbman: Danielle.
Carter Davis: My girlfriend?
Tree Gelbman: Same one. Okay.
Carter Davis: [as Tree feels pain in her stomach] Are you okay?
Tree Gelbman: Yeah. Never better.
Carter Davis: Hey, I folded your clothes for you, so.
Tree Gelbman: Look, no offense, but how could you possibly end up with her?
Carter Davis: With who?
Tree Gelbman: Danielle.
Carter Davis: She’s nice.
Tree Gelbman: Oh, nice.
[Tree imitates a gunshot to the head]
Carter Davis: Wait a minute. Isn’t she like your best friend?
Tree Gelbman: Listen to me carefully. I need to stay here in this dimension. Okay? So just close the loop.
Ryan Phan: Look, we have no idea how this even happened in the first place.
Tree Gelbman: Well, you’re all brainy science people, right? So you’ll figure it out.
Samar Ghosh: You realize we’re messing with things we have no business touching, right?
Tree Gelbman: Well, maybe you should have thought of that before you built the big dumb thing.
Tree Gelbman: Just please do me a favor and try to figure this out, okay? Please.
Ryan Phan: Look, this is going to be a trial and error situation. We have to rule out every variable in order to narrow down the correct algorithm that will close the loop.
Tree Gelbman: Okay.
Andrea ‘Dre’ Morgan: It’s days, maybe weeks of work. And if what you’re saying is true, there’s no way to keep a record of our progress.
Tree Gelbman: I’m not following.
Samar Ghosh: Okay. Say we test like dozens of variables. By the end of the day, the loop will reset, right? So everything we learned gets erased. There’s no way for us to track our progress simply because we just don’t remember anything we learned.
Andrea ‘Dre’ Morgan: And we’ll be back to square one.
Tree Gelbman: Great. I’m screwed.
Carter Davis: Wait, no, I got it. Okay, you said everything resets but your memory, right?
Tree Gelbman: Yeah.
Carter Davis: Alright, well, then you’re just going to have to be a living record.
Tree Gelbman: Wait, you mean memorize everything?
Carter Davis: Yeah.
Samar Ghosh: That’s genius.
Andrea ‘Dre’ Morgan: Yeah.
Tree Gelbman: No. No, no, no, no. That’s not genius. I’m not a scientist. And, hello. I mean, you do realize there’s a killer after me, right? That means I’m going to have to die over and over again until you guys figure out how to close the loop.
Samar Ghosh: I mean, I guess you could just kill yourself before they find you.
Tree Gelbman: Wow. Another genius idea.
Andrea ‘Dre’ Morgan: Better than being chased by some crazy guy in a baby mask.
Carter Davis: I mean, do you have a better idea?
Tree Gelbman: I knew you were going to say that.
Tree Gelbman: I am so done with this s**t.
Tree Gelbman: [explaining the equations she has been memorized] Then you multiplied the Euclidean vector by the square root of pi to the seventeenth power, which then gives us an axon point of point zero zero four, which then gives us a linear plane vector of eight point two. Boom.
Carter Davis: [impressed] Damn.
Andrea ‘Dre’ Morgan: Well, if these are all the failed algorithms…
Samar Ghosh: Then there’s only one possibility left.
Ryan Phan: [as he types in the algorithm] Holy s**t balls. You did it.
Carter Davis: What?
Tree Gelbman: It worked?
Ryan Phan: Yes.
Tree Gelbman: It worked? Oh, my God, it worked!
[Tree hugs Carter, Ryan, Samar and Dre jump up and down in excitement]
Samar Ghosh: Why are we so excited? We barely know her.
Carter Davis: Honestly, I don’t know what just happened, but that was impressive.
Tree Gelbman: Thanks.
Ryan Phan: Let’s do this.
Ryan Phan: Just so we’re totally clear, one variant closes the loop in this dimension, and the other one sends you back to your original dimension and closes that loop. It’s final decision time. Stay here or go back.
Tree Gelbman: [looks at Carter for a moment] I’m staying here. Final decision.
Ryan Phan: Okay. Here we go, then. Stand back.
Tree Gelbman: [after failing to reactivate the reactor] What happened?
Andrea ‘Dre’ Morgan: Oh, the vector’s off.
Tree Gelbman: But you said this was the right one.
Andrea ‘Dre’ Morgan: No, the math was right. Something else is off.
Tree Gelbman: Guys, I have literally been killing myself to memorize this s**t for you. Failure is not an option.
Ryan Phan: There’s something in hard drive. It must be a virus.
Andrea ‘Dre’ Morgan: Dude, did you open spam porn again on the computer?
Samar Ghosh: [looking guilty] No!
Ryan Phan: Great. I have to manually re-enter all this code.
Tree Gelbman: Okay, how long?
Ryan Phan: Six, seven hours.
Tree Gelbman: Ryan, look at me. I am on borrowed time here. Understand? Get it done.
Ryan Phan: Yeah, I’m on it.
Carter Davis: Are you sure about this?
Tree Gelbman: Of course I’m sure.
Carter Davis: Okay, well, what about the killer? I mean, you said people are going to die tonight. If you close the loop and we don’t help, then they’re dead for good, aren’t they?
Tree Gelbman: I have to stay alive. I can’t go back to that hospital. It’s way too risky.
Carter Davis: Okay, so that’s it? You’re just going to walk away and let a bunch of innocent people die?
Tree Gelbman: People die every day, Carter. I can’t be responsible for everyone, okay? I know how selfish that sounds, but it’s true.
Carter Davis: Yeah, no, that sounds incredibly selfish. Are you serious?
Tree Gelbman: That’s not fair.
Tree Gelbman: You have no idea how hard this is for me. I don’t want to have to choose between you and my mom, but I have to.
Carter Davis: What do you mean, “choose”?
Tree Gelbman: Carter, we’re together in the other dimension. I woke up in your bed every morning, just like this morning. I did it over, and over, and over again, until I fell in love with you. But that version of us is back there, and my mom is alive here. So I’ve made my decision.
Carter Davis: What if you’re wrong? Huh? What if you’re wrong? What if this isn’t the life that you’re supposed to have?
Tree Gelbman: So what? I’m just supposed to go back to some dimension where my mom’s dead? I can’t. I can’t lose her again.
Carter Davis: You already did. And none of this is real if it erases that. You’re just, you’re living someone else’s life that doesn’t belong to you. Your pain, that loss, that’s what makes you you. But you have the chance to do something other people only dream of.
Tree Gelbman: What?
Carter Davis: You could say goodbye.
Danielle Bouseman: Yoo-hoo.
Tree Gelbman: Your girlfriend’s calling you. You better go.
Tree Gelbman: Have you ever wondered what your life would have been like if you couldn’t be with dad?
Julie Gelbman: What? No.
Tree Gelbman: But what if you had to choose? You know, what if being with him meant that you would lose someone that you were really close to, that you would never get to see that person ever again? What would you do?
Julie Gelbman: Well, we all have to make hard choices, Tree. That’s life. And sometimes the past is pulling us in one direction, and the future is calling us somewhere new. But, of course, if I had to choose, I’d pick daddy. I mean, without him, I wouldn’t have you, right?
Tree Gelbman: But how did you know that he was the one?
Julie Gelbman: I didn’t. I took a chance. I followed my heart. That’s kind of how love works, Tree. It’s a leap of faith.
Tree Gelbman: How much longer is it going to take?
Ryan Phan: Thanks to your crazy memory, it shouldn’t take long at all. I can have Sissy ready to go in just a few minutes.
Tree Gelbman: I need a little more time. There’s something I need to do.
Ryan Phan: Tree. You sure you want to go back?
Tree Gelbman: I can’t spend my life living in the past. Got to take a leap of faith.
Tree Gelbman: [referring to her affair with Gregory] He’s not worth it. I mean, trust me, I’ve been involved with a married guy. I know what it’s like living a double life. Always feeling like s**t about yourself. But it’s never too late to change. And someone once told me that every day is a chance to be someone better. Maybe this is your day.
Lori Spengler: Okay. Thank you.
Tree Gelbman: [embraces Lori] Take care of yourself.
Tree Gelbman: [saying goodbye to her mother] Mom, I really want you to know how much I love you.
Julie Gelbman: Aw. I love you, too, sweetie.
Tree Gelbman: No, mom, I’m serious. You know, people say “I love you” all the time, but it’s not until you can’t say it to that person’s face anymore that you really realize how much you mean it. You are so beautiful and so amazing. And I just hope I can become half of the woman that you are one day.
Julie Gelbman: Are you kidding? I’m the woman I am because I had you. You know, I never really told anyone this before, but when I was pregnant with you, I was scared s**tless.
Tree Gelbman: [chuckling] No.
Julie Gelbman: But then, the moment I held you, something inside of me changed instantly. The best kind of love does that. It changes you. It makes you a better person.
Tree Gelbman: [as she cries] Oh, God. I’m so stupid. I really thought I could have it all, but I can’t.
Julie Gelbman: Oh, honey, nobody can. But guess what. That’s okay. You’ll get what you need.
Tree Gelbman: I hope so.
Julie Gelbman: Come here.
Tree Gelbman: [sits on her mother’s lap and they embrace lovingly] Am I crushing you?
Julie Gelbman: [laughing] Nope. You’re always going to be my little girl.
Ryan Phan: You ready?
Tree Gelbman: Wait. Look, I know this is probably pretty confusing. I mean, you guys have only known me for a couple hours, but I’ve known you for weeks. You’ve all worked really, really hard to try to send me home. So thank you.
Samar Ghosh: Well, jury’s still out on whether you’re totally nuts, but glad we could help.
Tree Gelbman: Okay, Ryan, light her up.
Carter Davis: So, in this other dimension, do we know each other?
Tree Gelbman: You could say that.
Ryan Phan: Seventeen seconds, sixteen, fifteen, fourteen…
Dean Roger Bronson: [interrupts them by entering the lab] What did I tell you about turning that thing on?
Samar Ghosh: Uh-oh.
Tree Gelbman: Wait. This isn’t supposed to happen yet. You’re not supposed to come until tomorrow.
Dean Roger Bronson: Turn that thing off now.
Tree Gelbman: No, don’t!
[Bronson goes over to the reactor to turn it off]
Carter Davis: Look, okay, it’s a setback. I get it. Right, but we just reset the day and try again.
Tree Gelbman: No. You don’t understand. I keep getting weaker every time I come back. I don’t know how many chances I have left. For all I know, this could be it. If I die again, I could stay dead.
Samar Ghosh: Hm, that’s a problem.
Andrea ‘Dre’ Morgan: No s**t.
Tree Gelbman: Unless we steal it back.
Ryan Phan: Steal it?
Tree Gelbman: Well, I mean, you know, it’s not even technically stealing, is it? It’s your property.
Samar Ghosh: Woh, woh, guys, I don’t know about this. Like, if we get caught and I get expelled, my parents are going to hang me by the nut sack.
Andrea ‘Dre’ Morgan: I’m with him. Except for the nut sack part, obviously.
Carter Davis: Are you kidding me? No. I’m sorry to throw a bag of dog s**t on your front porch here, but this is all on you guys. You created this mess, so you’re obligated to help her out of it. Besides, if she dies again tonight, that’s blood on your hands.
Samar Ghosh: That’s a little dramatic.
Ryan Phan: He’s right. This is our fault. So we fix it. That’s what scientists do. We solve the problem.
Andrea ‘Dre’ Morgan: [looking at the faculty map] So Dean Bronson’s office is in this building here, and the fastest route back to the lab is this path here.
Samar Ghosh: And check this out, guys. Dean Bronson spends every evening knitting in the faculty lounge over here.
Carter Davis: Wait, what? He knits?
Samar Ghosh: I think he used to smoke, and then his wife made him quit. And, oh, by the way, shockingly hot.
Andrea ‘Dre’ Morgan: Samar?
Samar Ghosh: Hm?
Andrea ‘Dre’ Morgan: Could we do the thing we’re doing right now?
Samar Ghosh: Okay, okay. Right. Sorry.
Lori Spengler: Tree, will you please tell me what’s going on?
Tree Gelbman: At first, I thought he was trying to kill me, but it’s you he’s after.
Lori Spengler: Who?
Tree Gelbman: [they see Babyface, she points her gun at him] It’s over, Gregory.
Lori Spengler: [Babyface takes off his mask and it’s Gregory] What? Why?
Tree Gelbman: His wife found out about your affair. So he stole a page from your old playbook. He set Tombs free, knowing that everyone would think that he killed you. And the secret of your affair would die with you.
Gregory Butler: [slowly clapping] Bravo. Well done, indeed.
Tree Gelbman: Once a douchebag, always a douchebag.
Gregory Butler: I’m sorry, do I know you?
Tree Gelbman: Stay back, a**hole.
Stephanie Butler: Would you like to do the honors?
Gregory Butler: Don’t mind if I do.
[as he goes to shoot Tree, he turns and shoots Stephanie]
Gregory Butler: Oh, wait. I almost forgot. I want a divorce.
Tree Gelbman: [after the reactor works and sends her to her original timeline] Danielle?
Carter Davis: Who?
Tree Gelbman: [smiles and hugs Carter] Hi.
Samar Ghosh: Oh, my God. I think I just s**t my pants.
Dr. Parker: [mid-credits lines, the reactor has been taken to DARPA ] Hope you don’t mind us borrowing her. What you’ve created here is truly remarkable.
Ryan Phan: Suck it, Dean Bronson.
Dr. Parker: We’ve been having some difficulties understanding how the device operates. We figured you could help.
Ryan Phan: There’s so many different algorithms. It’ll be tough to find the right one to make it work.
Tree Gelbman: I might be able to help with that.
Dr. Parker: Great. So we just need to find a test subject.
Carter Davis: Wait, you want to trap somebody in a time loop? That’s messed up. Unless they deserve it.
Tree Gelbman: I think I have the perfect recruit.
[we see Danielle waking up screaming in horror]
