Maya Sorian: [over comms] What are you doing, Captain?
Big Adam: Well, I think it’s pretty obvious. I’m stealing this jet.
Maya Sorian: I think it’s pretty obvious you’re trying to. You know I can track your jump.
Big Adam: Yeah, but you know that I know that. So one of us doesn’t know something else, right?
Young Adam: [to Ray] Who talks like that? Did you order like a “Bully Starter Kit” on Amazon or something? I mean, do you even hear yourself? Chuck, we talked about this.
Chuck: I didn’t say anything.
Young Adam: Shut up, Chuck!
Young Adam: [referring to Ray] He was giving me crap in front of the whole class. I couldn’t just take it.
Ellie Reed: He’s twice your size.
Young Adam: Everyone is twice my size. I’ve seen babies bigger than me.
Ellie Reed: It’s the third time you’ve been suspended for fighting.
Young Adam: I know. You’d think I’d be better at it by now.
Ellie Reed: This goes on your permanent record. Do you get that? Do you care about your future? Do you? Son, you’d better start caring, because the future is coming. Sooner than you think.
Young Adam: You’re going on a date.
Ellie Reed: It’s not a date. I don’t think it’s a date.
Young Adam: Your dress thinks it is.
Young Adam: Mom, wait.
Ellie Reed: What?
Young Adam: [zips up her dress] Turn around. Make good choices, okay?
Ellie Reed: Said the boy who got suspended.
Big Adam: Take it easy.
Big Adam: [as young Adam screams and falls down] Or, you know, fall down and scream.
Young Adam: What are you doing in here?
Big Adam: Mostly bleeding.
Young Adam: That’s a lot of blood.
Big Adam: Well, I have so much more in my body.

Big Adam: [referring to Ellie’s date] The guy with the mouth mullet.
Young Adam: The goatee?
Big Adam: Yeah.
Young Adam: So say goatee.
Big Adam: Yeah, he doesn’t matter.
Young Adam: None of them matter.
Big Adam: I told you to stay in the garage.
Young Adam: And let some creepy dude just wander around my house alone?
Big Adam: Yeah.
Young Adam: I don’t think so.
Big Adam: Don’t touch that.
Young Adam: I was just looking.
Big Adam: Don’t touch my stuff.
Young Adam: Is this a lightsaber?
Big Adam: No! It’s not a lightsaber.
Big Adam: [to young Adam] Enough with the bat! If I wanted to hurt you, I’d have done it already. Because if I’m being perfectly honest with myself, you have a very punchable face.

Big Adam: That bullet went straight through. That’s good. That’s cool.
Young Adam: Wait, wait, wait, wait. Bullet? You were shot?
Big Adam: Yeah. No, actually. No. No. I was stabbed with a bullet. What do you think, you moron?
Young Adam: I’m a moron? You’re the one who was shot!
Big Adam: [referring to his bullet wound] Wow. That’s weird. It farts when I cough.
Young Adam: Gross.
Big Adam: Super gross.
Big Adam: I’m going to go upstairs, I’m going to grab some stuff. Stay cool. You can trust me.
Young Adam: That’s easy for you to say. I’m the one who ends up in a therapist’s office, telling them about where the bad man touched me.
Big Adam: Oh, God! That’s where you go? Immediately? You are dark, man.
Young Adam: Who even are you?
Big Adam: That is classified.
Young Adam: Why are you here?
Big Adam: Also classified.
Young Adam: Are you in the air force?
Big Adam: When I say “classified”, what does your brain hear? Chocolate?
Young Adam: How do you know my name?
Big Adam: You’re Adam Reed. Born February 10th, 2010. Your parents are Ellie and Louis Reed. Louis would’ve died about a year ago. You don’t play any sports because of an acute asthmatic condition. Plus, you’re freakishly small for a twelve year-old. You go to Franklin Middle School, where you’ve been suspended two, maybe three times for fighting, which is ironic because you can’t fight to save your life.
Young Adam, Big Adam: [as the dog is barking at them] Hawking! Zip it!
'When a bad idea is the only idea, it becomes a great idea.' - Big Adam (The Adam Project) Click To Tweet
Young Adam: How do you know my dog’s name?
Big Adam: Because I named him.
Big Adam: [grabs young Adam as he’s about to pass out] Where are you going?
Young Adam: When I was seven, I ran into a table on the patio. I got twelve stitches.
Big Adam, Young Adam: [they both point to their chin] Right here.
Young Adam: You knew how to get into my dad’s garage. You knew how to close the fridge. You knew how to time my breathing. We have the same scar. And you’re wearing my dad’s watch. This watch.
Big Adam: This watch.
Young Adam: You’re me. Holy sh…
Big Adam: That’s classified. But, yes. I once was.
Young Adam: I can’t believe you’re future me.
Big Adam: Okay, you came to terms with that pretty quickly, didn’t you? It’s a little disturbing actually.
Young Adam: So why are you here?
Big Adam: Rescue mission. I wasn’t supposed to land here. I was aiming for 2018. I need to get there as soon as possible.
Young Adam: Who were you trying to save in 2018?
Big Adam: Really?

Big Adam: [inside the jet] I don’t know what that is, but when is a flashing red light ever good?
Big Adam: I know you want to touch all the pretty buttons with your sticky little child fingers, but the reactor has a quantum signature. You fire it up, they can find us. If they’re here.
Young Adam: Who are “they”?
Big Adam: I’m glad that you didn’t ask me that, because “they” are classified.
Young Adam: Come on. I already know you’re from the future.
Big Adam: Believe me, I regret that. I had no intention of coming back to revisit this.
Young Adam: Do you remember this?
Big Adam: Remember what?
Young Adam: This. Right here, right now. You being here in 2022?
Big Adam: Okay, I know where you’re going with this. You’re wasting your time.
Young Adam: I mean, if this is happening to me, that means it already happened to you. Right? Unless it works more like a multiverse, where each ripple creates an alternate timeline.
Big Adam: It’s not a multiverse! My God, we watched too many movies.
Big Adam: The prevailing wisdom is that when I go back to my fixed time, my memory, our memories, they reform, they reconcile. But not while I’m here.
Young Adam: Fixed time? What’s that?
Big Adam: There’s only one place in time where you belong on a quantum level, where you’re not screwing around with the cosmos like I am. That is your fixed time. Where you actually belong.
Young Adam: So by being here, and telling me this, you may have just changed my whole future?
Big Adam: Honestly? Your future is pretty tragic either way. I’m kidding! I’m kidding. I’m not kidding. I’m kidding. Let’s go.
Young Adam: So what happens now?
Big Adam: Nothing. I’m just going to lay down. Let this bullet wound heal. Think about some key investment opportunities for your future.
Young Adam: Wait, like Biff from Back to the…
Big Adam: Are you out of your tiny mind? Get back in the house before our mother gets home, and don’t make it weird.
Young Adam: Dad’s favorite song.
Big Adam: Yeah, me too. See, we agreed on something. Maybe the only thing.
Young Adam: You’re kind of ripped.
Big Adam: Okay.
Young Adam: Do you work out alot? Because I don’t think my genetics really have muscles like that.
Big Adam: Do you ever just have a thought and not let it come out of your mouth? It could be fun to just keep it in, you know.
Young Adam: Maybe in the future there’s like gene therapy, or nanotechnology for…
Big Adam: Don’t do it. Don’t do it.
Young Adam: So when does all this happen. And does everyone skip leg day in the future? Does it happen in college? Oh, wait. Do we get a lot of girls in college?
Big Adam: Adam! Time travel exists. It exists. Isn’t that crazy? Every conceptual idea you have about the universe has just been thrown out the window. Yet your big question is, “Do I get laid?”
Young Adam: Do I?
Big Adam: Jesus Christ.
Young Adam: I was just wondering.
Big Adam: Well, wonder in silence.
Young Adam: [to himself] Oh, my God! It’s going to happen!
Young Adam: [referring to Ellie] She’s not much of a housekeeper.
Big Adam: Hey. You have her to take care of you. She has no one. You understand? Do you understand? She wakes up every morning with a broken heart, and a closet full of his clothes, and gets nothing from you but a fistful of crap, and not even like ten seconds of genuine empathy.
Young Adam: I’m you, you know.
Big Adam: Tell me about it. You know, thirty years, you still get sick to your stomach every time you remember how you treated her now.
Young Adam: [referring to Louis] Do you still miss him?
Big Adam: I missed him while he was here.
Young Adam: Wait, you stole the jet?
Big Adam: Well, it’s encoded to me. So I didn’t exactly steal it. I borrowed the s**t out of it. There’s a difference.
Big Adam: [as Ray and Chuck are beating young Adam] I remember these little turd-burpers.
Big Adam: [to young Adam] Get it together. Ray is ready. You’re embarrassing yourself.
Ray: So you’re not going to break this up?
Big Adam: God, no. That’d be irresponsible of me. Besides, you’re just going to figure out some other way to pound the crap out of him. You always do.
Big Adam: Hey, Ray Dollarhyde has been bullying you for years because you’re small, and fragile, and you have a big mouth. But here’s the thing. He doesn’t want to fight.
Young Adam: Well, I don’t want to fight either.
Big Adam: Well, he doesn’t know that, does he? So here’s what you’re going to do. You’re going to walk over there, and you’re going to raise your hands. And then you’re going to look Ray right in the eye. You’re going to smile, in a way that says, “I’ve waited my entire life for this moment.” Like you can’t wait to watch his soul exit his body. Then you’re going to drop down to your knees and punch him as hard as you can in the private bathing suit parts.
Young Adam: I’m sorry, the what now?
Big Adam: [after young Adam runs off] Do you ever hear the expression, “Every bully has a bully”, Ray? Well, yours isn’t holding up his end of the bargain, so I’m going to take over.
Ray: What are you talking about?
Big Adam: [to Ray] You’re a good fighter. You like to kick a**. You’re a big kid. But if you go near Adam again, I’ll know. And I will find you, Ray. And it won’t be like a couple of kids in a playground scrap. I will pull bones out of your body. I will sharpen them. And I will use them to stab little Chuckie over here.
Chuck: What did I do?
Big Adam: Shut your mouth, Chuck, or I’ll fill it with Ray’s feet.
Big Adam: Hey, look, you lost one fight. I figured you’d be used to that by now.
Young Adam: You could have helped. You just stood there.
Big Adam: Christ. You’re so sensitive. Hey, you had to lose that fight. You had to. Trust me. You don’t go from being you to being me without getting your a** kicked, a lot, all the time.
Big Adam: [referring to the photo] That’s my wife, Laura.
Young Adam: We have a wife?
Big Adam: No, we do not have a wife anymore.
Ellie Reed: Babies are pure love. They grow into teenagers, who grow into be assassins of happiness.
Big Adam: You’re right though. Teenage boys are horrible. It’s like living with a urinal cake that yells at you. Mothers are usually the ones who take the hit.
Ellie Reed: Yeah.
Big Adam: But I’ll tell you something. Boys always come back for their mamas.
Ellie Reed: That’s nice. It sounds like you’re speaking from experience.
Big Adam: I am.
Big Adam: [to Ellie, referring to young Adam] You think you’re being strong for him, and the problem with acting like you have it all together is he believes it. Maybe he needs to know that you don’t. It’s okay if you don’t.
Big Adam: [to Ellie, referring to young Adam] He doesn’t hate you. He loves you. More than he knows.
Young Adam: So you came back for your wife, Laura?
Big Adam: We’re not getting into that.
Young Adam: Hey, she’s my wife too.
Young Adam: Wait a minute. You’re saying Dad invented time travel?
Big Adam: Yeah. Not on purpose. The magnetic particle accelerator. Remember that?
Young Adam: He called it The Adam Project.
Big Adam: Yeah, or as I like to call it, his favorite child.
Young Adam: [referring to Laura] But going back to save her. Talking to me. Everything you’re doing right now, just to rescue one person. You’re changing the future. That’s got to be against the rules.
Big Adam: You’ll feel differently when you meet her. And when you lose her.
Big Adam: Ouchie, with the face. Did I do that?
Christos: God, I hope the boss lets me kill you.
Big Adam: In fairness though, you did shoot me first. On the bright side, your face now matches your soul.
Christos: Anyone say you talk too much?
Young Adam: All the time.
Big Adam: It’s come up.
Young Adam: What is happening?!
Big Adam: Dying outside your fixed time is messy! What are you doing here?
Laura: Saving your a**, honey.
Laura: I knew you’d come someday. I just didn’t know when.
Big Adam: Of course I came.
Big Adam: Laura, this is me.
Young Adam: Hi.
Laura: Parallel contact, babe?
Big Adam: Well, you know, you’ve always said that you wish you’d met me earlier. Here I am.
Big Adam: I don’t understand. How did you find us?
Laura: You don’t think I’d be watching your back, even in the past?
Young Adam: [to big Adam] God, it’s like I traded my brains for those muscles. It’s a s**t deal.
Laura: Cute kid.
Big Adam: Precious, isn’t he? Don’t you just want to hold him underwater till the bubbles stop? Oh, I freaking hate myself.
Young Adam: So this world, our world, everything has already been changed by Sorian.
And your fixed time, 2050, is it bad there?
Big Adam: We’ve seen Terminator, right?
Young Adam: Obviously.
Big Adam: That’s 2050 on a good day.
Big Adam: Alone. All this time. Four years.
Laura: That’s the job, right?
Big Adam: Yeah, but, baby…
Laura: It’s fine. I got used to being alone.
Big Adam: Not anymore. Hey. I found you. I found you.
Laura: [as they kiss] You found me.
Young Adam: [as big Adam and Laura are kissing] I’m going to take my eyes and ears for a walk.
Big Adam: Bye now.
Young Adam: You kids have fun.
Laura: You know what you have to do.
Big Adam: No. No, I came back for you.
Laura: I know. But we can’t have a life here. Not like this. Now you have to go back to 2018, and you have to put things right. You have to put an end to all of this.
Young Adam: What do you mean “put an end to it”?
Laura: I mean, stop time travel from ever being invented and save the future.
Big Adam: If I go back, and I stop time travel, and that’s an extremely big “if” with Sorian on my a**, we never meet. We never happen. We never happen, Laura.
Laura: We did happen. Every moment we ever had will always have happened. Even if we correct the time stream, somewhere in us will be the echo of this one. And we will find each other. I really believe that.
Big Adam: What if we don’t? What if you’re wrong? And you’re probably wrong.
Laura: When am I ever wrong?
Laura: I know you came for me. Now you have to leave for me, please! Please. We can fix this.
Big Adam: Hey, I love you.
Laura: That’s why I know you’re going to find me again.
Young Adam: [to big Adam] This is my fixed time. You already had my childhood. You had adventures, you flew planes. And I’m still the nerd with an inhaler who gets his a** kicked! I want the rest of it.
Big Adam: [to young Adam] Here’s the rest of it. Dad’s death screws you up more than you ever realize. You get depressed. You get angry. You wander around high school without making a social dent. College is a high point! Until after a year, you lose your scholarship for something that is so unbelievably stupid I cannot even say it out loud right now. You end up in the air force. Turns out you could really fly. And then along comes time travel, and the whole world starts to fall apart, until the only woman you ever loved gets taken away! Do you understand me? Till you lose. She just gets taken away.
Young Adam: [referring to destroying time travel] What’s your plan?
Big Adam: Well, I’m not going to explain my plan to a twelve year-old nerd with an inhaler…
Young Adam: You don’t have a plan.
Big Adam: Because I do not have a plan. That is correct. But I know somebody who might.
Young Adam: Dad.
Big Adam: Grab on to that railing. Hold on for dear life. And try not to pass out from the G’s. Okay?
Young Adam: [as the jet takes off] What’s a… Jesus!
Big Adam: What do you say, kid? Your call. We don’t pull this off, we’re not getting back, either one of us.
Young Adam: Punch that s**t.
Big Adam: Oh, yeah.
Louis Reed: [to his students] You will die before your life’s work is done. Your cold, lifeless husk will be moldering in the ground while generations that come after you will be finishing the work that you started. To quote the Romans, “Enjoy yourselves. It’s later than you think.”
Louis Reed: Adam?
Big Adam: Dad.
Young Adam: Dad.
Louis Reed: [as young Adam runs into his arms] Adam? Is this time travel?
Louis Reed: [to big Adam] Is that my jacket? It looks a littl tight on you, don’t you think?
Young Adam: That’s what I said.
Big Adam: It’s fine.
Louis Reed: You look like a condom with buttons.
Louis Reed: Okay, stop. Both of you stop talking now. Do you realize how absolutely wrong this is? You can’t be here. You can’t be anywhere but your own timeline.
Big Adam: What do you think we’re doing here? You think we’re short of hugs in the future?
Louis Reed: [to big Adam] Don’t get me wrong. I’m very happy to see you, and I mean this in the best possible way, but you need to pi** off back to where you came from. Anything you say, or do, could cause a divergence.
Louis Reed: [after big Adam punches him and he punches Adam back] How did you turn out to be an a**hole? I thought you loved me.
Young Adam: I do!
Big Adam: None of it matters anymore anyway.
Louis Reed: Are you kidding me? Of course it matters.
Louis Reed: Holy s**t! I’m the godfather of time travel?
Louis Reed: I’m sorry. This is my fault. My ego. My hubris. My need to be best, to be first, to be the smartest guy in the room. And here we are.
Big Adam: It’s a disgusting character flaw.
Young Adam: He didn’t know.
Louis Reed: But I should have.
Louis Reed: Mankind has no business tampering with the mechanics of the universe. There are forces greater than science.
Big Adam: You’re right. That’s why we’re going to put the genie back in the bottle, and destroy time travel before it’s even invented.
Louis Reed: What’s done, no matter how terrible, should not, and cannot be undone, under any circumstance. Even us being here, talking like this, we’re perverting fate and time.
Big Adam: Stop being a scientist.
Louis Reed: But I am a scientist.
Big Adam: Be a father. You were always more interested in the universe than you were your own son.
Young Adam: That’s not true.
Big Adam: That is true. And when you’re older, you’ll realize that. You know what? That ship has sailed. It’s too late for me. So, you know, whatever. I’m fine. But he needs you.
Louis Reed: And you? What do you need?
Big Adam: I need to go for a walk.
Young Adam: [to big Adam] You hate him because he died. You made yourself hate him, because it was easier than missing him.
Young Adam: [to big Adam] Things happened to you, to us. And we suck at dealing with it. I’m starting to think it’s something we do. I give Mom a hard time now, and I think it’s easier to be angry than it is to be sad. And I guess, when I get older, I forget that there’s a difference.
Big Adam: How did you get to be so smart?
Young Adam: How did you get to be so dumb?
Big Adam: [takes the bottle of beer away as young Adam tries to reach for it] Nice try, a**hole.
Louis Reed: [referring to young Adam] Does he seem sad to you?
Ellie Reed: No. He’s an odd duck, like his dad. I happen to collect odd ducks.
Louis Reed: I’ve got to do better.
Ellie Reed: Hey, buddy, I have good news for you. He doesn’t need perfect. He just needs you. Your cooking makes you a borderline serial killer, but the rest of you is pretty awesome.
Big Adam: So here’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to blow this b**ch up.
Young Adam: Blow it up?
Big Adam: Yep.
Young Adam: How did I live this long? That’s a terrible idea.
Big Adam: Yeah, well, when a bad idea is the only idea, it becomes a great idea.
Young Adam: Who said that?
Big Adam: You. Nine years from now, right before you get arrested.
Young Adam: What?
Big Adam: Adam, you’re on those cars, right?
Young Adam: Roger that, middle-aged Adam.
Louis Reed: I mean, what the hell is this?
Big Adam: Tell you what? You come up with a plan, and then we’ll do it your way. Does that sound good?
Louis Reed: Oh, God. Thank God. There’s a plan. Oh, I was worried. I was beginning to think you were making this up as you went along.
Louis Reed: I’m sorry. That was a little harsh.
Big Adam: Harsh? You shaved my a** with a Subaru!
Louis Reed: I saved your a** with a Subaru, son.
Young Adam: What’s Dad doing?
Big Adam: Dad’s being critical. Big surprise.
Louis Reed: Okay. You’re trying to break into a highly sensitive, secure facility with a sixth-grader. I am not being critical. I’m narrating.
Louis Reed: Do you realize that you have broken every rule? You’ve blown past every conceivable ethical boundary like it wasn’t even there.
Big Adam: Yeah? Then why are you here, Dad?
Louis Reed: Because you can’t do it without me.
Louis Reed: I’ve never written the algorithm down, or demonstrated it to another human being, so it lives here in the old bean, and in the subbasement, in a diamond-hard neuromorphic processor.
Big Adam: Are you talking about your p**is?
Louis Reed: Can we be serious now?
Big Adam: Yes. No. Yes.
Louis Reed: It’s a hard drive, okay? God, you’re such a child.
Big Adam: This is where you work.
Louis Reed: Yes.
Big Adam: Only took you forty-four years to bring me here.
Louis Reed: Fair.
Maya Sorian: [as she holds young Adam at gun point] Hey, beautiful idiot. If I shoot him, you die too.
Louis Reed: Adam?
Big Adam: I’m thinking it over.
Young Adam: What? What do you mean you’re thinking?
Big Adam: Yeah. It’s a complicated issue.
Louis Reed: What is there to think over?
Big Adam: It’s a big decision!
Young Adam: No, it’s not! It’s not complicated!
Louis Reed: It’s not a big decision!
Big Adam: I need to think it through!
Young Adam: I’m about to lose my s**t here!
Young Adam: Superhero landing. Ever had your a** kicked by a twelve year-old nerd with an inhaler? Suppertime, Spanky.
Louis Reed: Get behind me, both of you.
Big Adam: Look, Dad. Dad, those guns shoot armor-piercing bullets. So even behind you, we’re still Swiss cheese.
Louis Reed: Thank you for that information.
Big Adam: You’re welcome.
Big Adam: [after Sorian ends up killing herself] How did you know that would work?
Louis Reed: Those armor-piercing rounds contain a magnetic steel core. Sometimes it pays to be a nerd, guys.
Big Adam: [after they’ve destroyed time travel] Well, I’d say Bring Your Kid to Work Day was a huge success.
Louis Reed: Uh-huh.
Young Adam: Yep.
Big Adam: What are you looking at?
Louis Reed: You’re still here. I figured after we eliminated time travel, you two would go back to your fixed times.
Big Adam: Well, it probably takes a while for thirty years of changed time to sort itself out.
Young Adam: I don’t think we have long. I can feel something happening.
Big Adam: Me too.
Big Adam: There’s something that we need to tell you.
Louis Reed: I already know. I knew the moment I saw you. I’m sorry, boys. I’m sorry that I’m not going to be there for you down the road. And I’ve given it a lot of thought, but you cannot tell me how or when it happens. You came back here because no one has a right to change the future, including us.
Big Adam: It’s your future.
Louis Reed: No. You’re my future. Both of you. And how lucky am I that I got to see it?
Louis Reed: You’re my boys, and you’ll always be my boys. Throughout all time.
Young Adam: I need you, Dad. It’s so hard without you.
Louis Reed: I know. You’re going to be okay. You’re going to be better than okay.
Young Adam: You don’t know that.
Louis Reed: [referring to big Adam] Are you kidding me? Have you seen this guy?
Big Adam: I don’t know if we’re going to remember any of this, but maybe there’ll be an echo, or something, like Laura said. But just in case, give Mom a hug for me. Would you do that? Not one of your lame-a** side hugs either. I’m talking the break-a-rib kind of hug. Yeah?
Young Adam: Yeah.
Big Adam: [to young Adam] I spent thirty years trying to get away from the me that was you. And I’ll tell you what, kid. I hate to say it, but you were the best part all along.
Big Adam: [meets Laura again for the first time] Can you believe this guy? He’s been talking for fifteen minutes. Managed to put the entire class to sleep.
Laura: You look awake.
Big Adam: No. No, no, no, no, no. I’ve trained myself to fall fast asleep but keep my eyes open.
Big Adam: Where do they find these guest lecturers? Right? It’s like they’re genetically engineered to bore us to death. You’re totally a guest lecturer, aren’t you?
Laura: Yes, I am. Yeah.
Big Adam: S**t.
Laura: I’m in the wrong building.
Big Adam: Actually, you’re in the wrong campus.
Laura: Then I’m lost.
Big Adam: Not anymore. I found you.
Big Adam: I can walk you to Schaefer.
Laura: Are you sure? I mean, I would hate to disturb your sleep.
Big Adam: I’ve got time.
