Speaker Dialogue
[Open Int. Beach House]
(Connie packs her belongings in her bag, as she prepares to leave Steven's home.)
Steven Thanks again for protecting Beach City while I was gone, Connie.
Connie No problem! *salutes Steven* And now that you're back from space, I officially relinquish control of your bed to you.
Steven *salutes back* Thank you for keeping it warm, sir.
(Steven and Connie start laughing together.)
Connie I hope your dad liked the new car wash sign!
(Both begin walking towards the door)
Steven He loved it! I'm sure it'll look great when the Gems are done putting it up.
Connie I hope they're back in time for me to say bye.
Steven Uhh... It might be a while? You wouldn't believe how many of them it takes to screw in a lightbulb.
Connie *opens the door* I wonder where my mom is. She should've been here to pick me up by now.
(Connie dials her phone and calls her mom. A voicemail message is heard.)
Dr. Maheswaran (voicemail) You've reached Doctor Maheswaran. Please leave a message. And if you're one of my patients, you shouldn't have this number!
Connie She's not answering.
Steven Well, look on the bright side! Now we can hang out a little longer, I'm sure she'll show up eventually.
Connie I don't want to impose, I mean, you must have a lot to think about after your space adventure. You almost lost your dad, and all that stuff about the Diamonds, and your mom? I'd understand if you need some space.
Steven Nah! The last thing I need right now is more space.
Connie Okay! What do you wanna do?
[Time-Skip; Evening]
(Steven and Connie are seen playing a game similar to Mad Libs, after playing a bunch of other board games. Steven fills in the blanks while Connie, seemingly in unrest, provides the words.)
Steven The last word is a noun.
Connie Umm. "Multi-hulled watercraft".
Steven Okay, here it goes. The "wiggly" baker baked some new "wacky" pastries. There were "snail" puffs, "lawn mower" pies, and "entropy" muffins! Everyone was so "fuzzy" that they ate everything! Even the cheese caked shaped like a "multi-hulled watercraft"! *laughs aloud*
(All while Steven is reading the passage, Connie attempts to call her mom and ending up reaching her voicemail again.)
Connie This is really weird. My mom always answers her phone.
Steven Hmm... Oh! How about I give you a ride home on Lion?
Connie It's not getting home I'm worried about! What if she shows up here and we're gone? We should probably stay put until she comes.
Steven Well, while we're still waiting, how about another weird word game?
Connie Okay.
Steven Alright! Let's see what we got here. The first one is an adjective.
Connie "Accidental".
Steven "Accidental", and the next one's a noun.
Connie Umm "Mishap"!
Steven "Mishap". Adverb?
Connie "Unexpectedly"!
Steven Past tense verb?
Connie "Crashed"!
Steven ...Noun?
Connie "Explosion"!
Steven Wow, you're really worried about your mom, huh?
Connie Yeah, it's just she's never late for anything.
(Connie tries to calm down, by meditating and taking a deep breath, when they heard footsteps outside the house.)
Dr. Maheswaran Hello? I'm coming in! *bursts into the house* Connie!
Connie Mom! *runs and hugs her mother* Mom, what happened? I kept calling but you weren't answering! I was starting to freak out.
Dr. Maheswaran The surgery went wrong, and then I had to cover for Dr. Stromberg, again! My phone died, I suspect one of my patients stole my charger... *sighs* I'm so sorry Connie.
Connie It's okay, Mom. Everything's fine now.
(Steven watches in somber, yet satisfaction as Connie reunites with her mom.)
[Trans Ext. Beach House]
(Steven stands on the porch, sending Connie and Dr. Mahaswaran off.)
Dr. Maheswaran Thank you, and letting Connie stay late.
Connie Night, Steven!
Steven Night, Connie!
Dr. Maheswaran So, he's back from the spa, huh?
Connie No, I said space!
Dr. Maheswaran Huh.
(Steven walks back inside the house, now all alone in his own home. He walks in and glances up at the painting of Rose. Sighing, he heads to the shower, where he changes out of his loincloth and takes off his earrings. Afterwards, he warms up some dinner and prepares to eat it. Again, he gets distracted by the painting of Rose and begins to get uncomfortable. He then decides to go outside to eat on the porch, when it starts to rain.)
Steven Huh, it's nice.
(Steven begins to eat, when the rain instantly worsens, with strong winds and lightning strikes. Startled and soaked, Steven quickly runs back inside the house and sits down on the living room couch. He looks at his dinner in disappointment, half of it blown away by the wind earlier, and glances at the painting of Rose again.)
Steven *sighs* You know, sometimes I wonder if it's even you up there, smiling all day and night. I just want to know the real you. Not the you that everyone tells me about. I... just want to know the truth.
Steven's gem begins to glow and the Temple Gate opens up to Rose's room. Steven glances at the painting again, and at the opened temple door.
[Trans Int. Rose's Room]
Steven enters the room cautiously, as the door vanishes behind him.
Steven Uhh... Hey room! It's been a bit huh? Is that a new cloud? *chuckles sheepishly* So, I suppose you're wondering why I'm here, I know nothing in here is real but... I wanna see my mom.
(Rose Quartz appears from clouds and Steven blushes. Rose walks up to Steven and kneels before him.)
Rose Hello Steven.
Steven Umm... It's- It's nice to meet you. *holds out his hand*
Rose *giggles and shakes Steven's hand* It's nice to meet you too.
Steven *giggles* Sorry, this is a little weird for me.
Rose That's okay, so what do you wanna do?
Steven Oh, uhh... I guess I hadn't thought that far ahead. Do you like video games?
(A game console appears beside Steven. Steven and Rose begin to play a game called "Lonely Arms".)
Rose So tell me about this game Steven.
Steven Well... I guess it's an arm wrestling simulator, which is a spinoff of a fighting game. Based on a show about a lonely swordsman that I like. It's kinda weird and hard to explain, but, that's why I like it.
Rose That sounds just marvelous.
(Steven and Rose play the game as Lonely Blade and Outgoing Fist respectively, and Steven beats Rose in the game.)
Steven Yay, I won!
Rose Yay, you won.
Steven What else do kids do with their parents?
(A football appears in front of Steven and he grabs it. Rose and Steven then begin throwing the football back and forth at each other.)
Rose Nice catch, son. *gives a thumbs-up*
Steven This is fun. *throws the football* Or would baseball be better?
Rose Steven. All sports are beautiful. *chases after the football* Each sport is a unique experience. The adrenaline, the glory. *catches the football and spins around* The sheer feats of athleticism, each one of them so complicated. *floats onto the ground* And yet, exactly the same.
Steven *in awe* Whoa.
Rose Hey Steven!
(Rose holds the football on the ground for Steven to kick.)
Steven You know, I always thought there was something strange about my adolescence. Maybe this is what I've been missing. Football!
(Steven runs towards the football and right before he can kick it, Rose removes the football at the last second, causing him miss and flies into the air.)
Steven AAUGH! *falls onto the ground, and he and Rose laugh* Touchdown!
Rose Steven.
(Rose pats the ground, and Steven sits down next to her.)
Steven I've been, uh thinking about you a lot. More than usual.
Rose Is that so?
Steven Yeah, well...for my whole life, I've been hearing stories about you. About how amazing you were. That you were so kind and loving. And every time I'd see the painting hanging of you in the temple, you inspired. And reminded of how much I had to live up to you. I've, uh... *chuckles nervously* Even thought about dying my hair pink. More than once.
Rose *giggles and ruffles Steven's hair* There's nothing wrong with your hair. It's wonderful just the way it is. Wonderful in every way. Just like you
(Steven lies against Rose's lap, and she embraces him.)
Steven Wow... this is it. It-it's really nice. *begins tearing up* I-I should have tried this a long time ago.
Rose But Steven, don't you realize? We've been together this whole time.
Steven Oh! *laughs* That's- That's right! *sniffles and gets up* Oh, this is the first time we've hung out together. *takes out his phone* I gotta capture this moment!
(Steven prepares to snap a selfie of himself and Rose, when he look at the phone screen and sees only himself, in a black background, in the camera.)
Steven There's nothing here but me. I'm just... talking to myself. *gets up, keeps his phone and looks at "Rose"* You're not my mom.
"Rose" I'm not?
Steven This is how I want you to be. But I don't know if this is who you really are.
(The atmosphere in the room quickly turn dark.)
Steven I've learned things about you. Things you wanted to keep secret. You locked Bismuth away inside of Lion, because she wanted to shatter Gems, and you never told Garnet or Pearl. But then you shattered Pink Diamond! Now all of Homeworld has it out for Earth, and the Crystal Gems, and me! You put us all in danger, and you just... disappeared!
(Thunder rumbles and lightning strikes in the room, startling Steven. Strong wind begins to blow, lifting Steven away and knocking onto the ground. "Rose" begins floating in the air, with a dark shadow cast upon her face.)
Steven I finally know the truth. I know what you are! You're a liar! I thought you'd never want to hurt anyone, but you hurt everyone! How could you just leave Garnet, and Amethyst and Pearl, and-and Dad?! They don't know what to do without you! *gets up from the ground* Maybe they didn't matter to you, as much as hiding the mess you made! And that's why I'm here, isn't it?! Did you just make me, so you just wouldn't have to deal with your mistakes?!
("Rose" remains silent in the storm. Steven sighs and falls to his knees in sorrow.)
Steven Is that what I'm all here for?...
("Rose" floats down in front of Steven, and the storm calms down.)
"Rose" Steven, you know that isn't true. In the tape I left you, I told you I how much I wanted to have you and let you exist. Do you think what I said to you in the tape was a lie?
Steven *looks away* No... I'm sure- I'm sure you meant it.
("Rose" walks over and gives Steven a hug. It then begins to rain in the room.)
Steven I get it. I know you didn't want me to deal with your problems. You're a part of me now. I have to deal with what you left behind.
(Steven hugs "Rose" tighter, as she disappears into clouds.)
[Trans Int. Beach House]
(Steven sadly emerges out of Rose's room. He heads over to the couch to lie down and turns away in somber.)
Greg Hey, schtu-ball!
(The front door opens as Greg and the Gems walk into the house.)
Greg Guess who's back in jean shorts! And guess who also got you a pizza? *sets the pizza on the table* It was me! *hugs Steven*
Steven Dad! Amethyst? Garnet? And Pearl, too?
Greg They were all out of pepperoni by the way, so I just got you mushroom. I hope that's alright.
(The star iris begins closing on Steven as he picks up a pizza slice.)
Steven It's perfect.
