Speaker Dialogue
[The episode opens in a lush, grassy field, with the camera centered on a group of flowers.]
Greg (Faintly) Steven? Steven?
(Cut to a shot of Steven waking up, tears pouring down his face.)
Greg Steven.
(Steven appears shocked as he wipes away the tears from his face. The camera pans toward the television, which shows a small clip from a movie featuring a UFO abducting a cow.)
Greg You okay, bud? You fell asleep during the movie. I was gonna let you sleep, you looked so cute, but then you started crying, and that was less cute.
(Steven wipes away the residual tears from his eyes.)
Steven Haha, no, I'm fine. I dunno why I was crying. M-my dream wasn't really sad.
(Greg checks his watch.)
Greg Oh gee, look at the time, and my classy new watch.
Greg Let's get you home, bud.
(Scene cuts to an outside view of the beach house at night, slowly panning down as Greg and Steven walk toward the steps.)
Greg Eh, you didn't miss much. Turns out they were abducting cows 'cause they needed milk for their cereal planet.
(Steven climbs up the steps, abruptly stopping halfway up before turning around.)
Steven Dad, before you go, can I ask you something?
Greg Yeah, of course!
Steven Did Mom ever talk to you about... Pink Diamond?
Greg There were some things your mom didn't like to talk about. I never pressed her for details.
Steven Why not?
(Greg approaches Steven and sits down next to him on the steps.)
Greg Rose and I talked about tons of important stuff. Music, comic books, getting sand between your toes, y'know, feelings. We both made a lot of mistakes when we were young. I thought disco was coming back, she started a war, I think she felt like she needed to confess everything to me, but I told her, "The past is the past. All that matters to me is who you are now." And who she was, was an incredible, loving being.
(Steven and Greg hug.)
Steven Night, Dad.
Greg Night, Steven.
(Cut to an aerial view of Steven's bed as he crawls into it, staring up into the camera as he closes his eyes while the screen fades to black.)
(The shot returns to the same view as the beginning, a lush field centered on a flower.)
Steven I'm here again... huh? I guess I can look around.
(The camera begins panning around, looking at nearby trees and other scenery.)
Steven What is this place?
(The camera pans right, the music increasing in intensity as the dilapidated overgrown remains of the Palanquin come into view.)
Steven What's... what is... woah...
(The scene cuts to Steven sitting up suddenly in bed, wiping tears from his face.)
Steven Huh?
(The scene cuts again to Connie sweeping a bunch of papers off Steven's living room table as he sits next to her, watching the papers scatter.)
Connie (excitedly) Sorry, I'll clean that up later!
(Connie removes the journal of Buddy Buddwick from her bag, placing it on the table.)
Connie When you told me about your dream, I thought it sounded familiar.
(Connie flips through the pages, stopping on the entry for the Palanquin.)
Steven *Gasp* That's it! The... palanquin.
Connie Actually, it's pronounced palanquin.
(The sound of the warp pad activating plays offscreen.)
Steven It's the gems! They've gotta know about this thing!
(Steven grabs the journal and runs toward the warp pad as Connie follows.)
Steven and Connie Woo!
Amethyst Yo.
Steven Hey, do you know anything about this thing?
(Steven opens the journal to the page featuring the Palanquin, showing it to the gems. Amethyst leans in to look at it closer.)
Amethyst Hmm, Steven, you deserve to know the truth. And the truth is... I have no idea what that thing is, I've never seen it before in my life.
(Pearl steps in to take a look.)
Pearl Excuse me, Amethyst, allow me. Uh, well... it appears to be an illustration in some kind of journal.
Steven C'mon, you know what I mean. I had a dream where I saw this thing. Connie and I were wondering if maybe...
Pearl S-steven, why don't you and Connie...
Garnet You can't go there!
Steven Why not?
Amethyst Yeah, why not?
(Garnet says nothing.)
Steven I thought you were going to tell me everything from now on.
Pearl Oh, Steven... We...
Steven Does this have anything to do with Pink Diamond? I already know mom shattered her, so what is it about this that you can't tell me?
(Pearl winces, looking over to Garnet.)
Garnet Please, you're making Pearl very upset.
Steven No! I'm very upset!
(Shot of Connie and Amethyst exchanging worried glances as they back away.)
Garnet We're. Not. Going. Rose never wanted you to see this place.
Steven (Angrily) Rose wanted- what about what I want? I'm sick of everyone lying to me! Rose is my mom, out of anyone, don't I deserve to know the truth?!
(Amethyst offers a box of popcorn to Connie, who silently rejects it.)
Garnet This isn't the time.
Steven I don't care! I wanna go there now!
Garnet Steven!
Connie I'm sorry... I... I shouldn't have brought the book.
Steven Yes, you should've brought it. It's lucky something has some information that I don't have to get out of them!
Steven Connie, I need to borrow this book.
Connie Okay, just be careful. I gotta return it to the library in a week.
(Steven walks off frame.)
Steven Thanks.
Connie Wait, Steven, where are you-
(Garnet takes hold of Connie's shoulder.)
(Cut to shot of Steven in broad daylight, looking at the Palanquin page in Buddy's journal.)
Garnet Steven, d-don't go. You have to trust me.
Steven I don't understand, Garnet. At least you're usually honest with me.
Garnet I really want to be, but if I tell you why you shouldn't go, you'll only want to go more.
Steven (Shocked) What?! Well, now I really wanna go!
Garnet Th...ugh, I shouldn't have said that. You can't go, because I can't go with you.
Steven Why not?
(Garnet says nothing.)
Steven Garnet, why not?
Garnet I-I'm scared. I-I-I can't get near her.
Steven Ah! Her! Her who?
Garnet Ah, shoot, now I've made it more interesting! Steven please, just stay here.
(Garnet removes her visor.)
Garnet For me?
Steven I won't.
Garnet *Sighs* I know.
(Steven runs out of frame.)
(Cut to a shot of inside Greg's van, with his foot sticking straight up.)
(Steven knocks on the door, waking Greg up.)
Steven Dad, I need your help.
Greg Is everything o-
Steven There's this place I saw in a dream, and it's real. But the Gems won't tell me anything about it. It has something to do with Pink Diamond. I know you didn't want to get involved with Mom's past, but I wanna know the truth. Doesn't that matter at all?
Greg Of course it does!
Steven Really?
(Greg holds out his hand.)
Greg Let me see that.
(Steven hands Greg the journal.)
Greg And the Gems won't take you?
Steven No.
Greg Well I know a guy who will.
(Cut to scene of Steven and Greg flying in a small plane, piloted by Andy.)
Andy So the Universe's are goin' to Korea?
Steven Thank you for the ride, Uncle Andy!
Andy Ah, it's no problem. Like they say, family helps family... find mysterious ancient artifacts.
Steven It's gonna be very serious work. No time for fun at all.
Greg Well, isn't there time for a little fun?
Steven Hmm...
(Cut to multiple scenes showing Greg and Steven having fun, including sight-seeing, eating local food, and buying clothes.)
(Cut to scene showing a bus dropping off Steven and Greg.)
Greg Kamsahamnida- (bus rushes off) Aw, what's the hurry?
Steven This is it.
Greg You sure this is the place?
Steven Yeah, it's hard to explain, but I can feel it.
Greg Huh, sure is pretty here. So does any of this look familiar to you? Steven?
(Greg notices Steven crying.)
Greg Whoa, you okay? It's happening again.
Steven I-I'm fine. Let's keep going.
Greg C'mon, let's take a break. I think this mountain is really messing me up.
Steven No, dad, this can only mean we're getting closer. C'mon!
(They approach a sign attached to a gate reading 'KEEP OUT' in both English and Korean. A smaller wooden sign below it says 'Please' in neat handwriting.)
Steven Look!
Greg This feels familiar.
Steven Dad, help me jump the fence.
Greg Oh, boy. we're doing this.
(Steven hops the fence, followed by Greg's shopping bags, and then Greg himself.)
Greg Oof, your dad can't really jump fences like he used to.
Steven Dad, look...
(Steven and Greg approach a blue Palanquin that appears to be unscathed.)
Steven This is it. But... it's different? I-in my dream, it was all broken down, and pink! It's in perfect condition.
Greg Maybe it got a paint job?
Blue Diamond (Faintly) Oh, Pink. I'm sorry... I'm so sorry...
(Greg and Steven see Blue Diamond accompanied by her Pearl. They watch from a bush.)
Blue Diamond I should've done more. Yellow says it'll all be over soon. I wonder what you would think. This is your planet, after all. I still think it is.
Greg Steven, do you know her?
(Steven falls into a sitting position behind the bush, his eyes still full of tears.)
Greg Whoa, buddy!
Steven My dreams... I was seeing through her eyes! I've been crying her tears!
Blue Diamond What are you doing over there?
Blue Pearl I thought I heard someone.
Greg Don't worry, I'll handle this.
Blue Pearl I think we're not alone.
(Greg stands up from behind the bush, startling Blue Pearl.)
Greg Hey! Uh... nice day out, huh? Uh, I didn't see you there. What's uh, what's... up?
Blue Diamond Pearl?
Blue Pearl My diamond, I've found a native.(bows)
Greg Oh yeah, I'm from here, alright. Annyeonghaseyo, Your Highness.
Blue Diamond Bring it here.
(Blue Pearl and Greg both walk over to Blue Diamond.)
Steven (Whispering) Dad, no!
Blue Diamond How curious. I'm impressed by humanity's ability to survive in the wild. What a strange planet. Where else would a being as fragile as a human live, while a being as powerful as a Diamond, perish? This is where it happened, where she was broken.
Greg Were you close?
Blue Diamond Very.
Greg I-I'm awfully sorry. I know how hard it is to move on when you've lost someone.
Blue Diamond (Turns to him) You do?
Greg I lost someone very important to me, too. I miss her every single day, and I think about her all the time. But she's never coming back. That feeling can be so hard to be okay with.
Blue Diamond I'm surprised that a human being is capable of understanding how I feel. It's a shame. There's a geo-weapon incubating in your planet that will destroy everything shortly. But you don't deserve that, do you?
Greg Geo-weapon, huh?
Blue Diamond You know, I really shouldn't be here. But I'm glad I came back one last time. I can save one last piece of her legacy.
Greg Oh yeah?
(Blue Diamond suddenly grabs Greg, keeping him within the grasp of her hand.)
Steven Dad!
(Blue Diamond extends her arm, causing a large blue hand ship to rise in the background.)
Greg That's a...big arm!
(The Palanquin's legs retract, and it hovers over to Blue Diamond as she begins walking toward it.)
Greg Whoa! Put me down, please! Whoa, whoa! Put me down, Your Highness!
(The Palanquin lands in front of Blue Diamond, opening as she steps into it before shutting itself closed.)
(Steven runs through the bush and toward the Palanquin.)
Steven Dad, Dad!
(The Palanquin ascends into an opening in the palm of the hand ship before it closes.)
Steven Stop!
(Steven jumps from the ground, flying high into the sky. He reaches for the ship as it rotates so that the hand faces upward. It launches itself into faster-than-light travel, disappearing instantly. The impact forces Steven back toward the ground.)
Steven Dad...
(Steven continues to fall before Garnet catches him in midair.)
Garnet Steven, I'm s- I'm sorry!
Steven Garnet!
Garnet I saw you come here, I saw Blue Diamond on Earth, I saw her see me and find all of us, I couldn't be here with you!
Steven She took my dad! It's all my fault! I should've listened to you! What are we gonna do, Garnet?
Garnet We're going to space. We're going to get him back.
