Dialogue Edit

Note that the dialogue is copied from the subtitles.

[Joel, along with Tess and Ellie, opens the entrance of the Capitol building, only to see bloody corpses on the floor.]

Tess: No. [Runs to corpse.] No, no, no. [Searches the corpse.]

Ellie: [to Joel.] What happens now?

Joel: [Walks toward Tess.] What are you doing, Tess?

Tess: [Anxious. Still searching.] Oh god. Maybe they, ah, maybe they had a map or something to tell us where they were going.

Joel: How far are we going to take this?

Tess: As far as it needs to go! [Stops searching. Looks at Ellie.] Where was this lab of there's?

Ellie: She never said. She only mentioned it was someplace out west.

Joel: [Calmly.] What are we doing here? This is not us.

Tess: [Standing up, she faces Joel.] What do you know about us? About me?

Joel: I know that you are smarter than this.

Tess: Really? Guess what, we're shitty people, Joel. It's been that way for a long time.

Joel: No, we are survivors!

Tess: This is our chance-

Joel: [Shouts.] It is over, Tess! [Lower.] Now we tried. Let's just go home.

Tess: [Tears up.] I'm not...I'm not going anywhere. [Pauses.] This is my last stop.

Joel: [Shrugs.] What?

Tess: Our luck had to run out sooner or later.

Joel: [Grabs Tess's arm.] What are you going on about-

Tess: [Yells] No don't- [Calmly.] Don't touch me...

Ellie: Holy shit. [Pauses.] She's infected.

[Joel looks back at Tess and slowly backs away.]

Tess: Joel...

Joel: Let me see it.

Tess: I didn't mean for this-

Joel: [Demanding.] Show it to me.

[Tess reaches for her collar and pulls it back, showing a bloody bite on her neck.]

Joel: [Shocked.] Oh, Christ.

Tess: [Embarrassed.] Oops, right? [Walks toward Ellie.] Gimme your arm. [Pulls up Ellie's sleeve.] This was three weeks! [Moves closer to Joel.] I was bitten an hour ago and it's already worse. This is fucking real, Joel! [Releases Ellie.] You've got to get this girl to Tommy's. He use to run with this crew, he'll know where to go.

Joel: No, no, no, that was your crusade. [points at Ellie.] I am not doin' that!

Tess: Yes you are! Look, [Inches closer.] there's enough here that you have to feel some sort of obligation to me. [Points at Ellie.] So you get her to Tommy's.

[They are interrupted by the sound of a vehicle. A group of soldiers have arrived outside the building. They exit their vehicles and proceed towards the door.]

Joel: Shit!

Tess: Oh... [Runs to window.]

Soldier: Watch the exit!

Tess: They're here.

Joel: Dammit.

Tess: [Turning around, she looks at Joel.] I can buy you some time, but you have to run.

Ellie: [Surprised.] What? You want us to just leave you here?

Tess: [Confidently.] Yes.

Joel: There is no way that-

Tess: I will not turn into one of those things! [Pauses.] Come on. [Tears up.] Make this easy for me.

Joel: I can fight-

Tess: No! Just go! [Pushes Joel.] Just fucking go...

Joel: Ellie-

Ellie: I'm sorry. I didn't - I didn't mean for this!

Joel: Get a move on.

[Ellie does as Joel says and runs. Joel slowly backs away from Tess and eventually takes off. Tess inhales and exhales, and prepares herself by turning to the entrance.]

Soldier 1: We know you're in there!

Soldier 2: Drop your weapons and come out with your hands up!

[Tess draws her pistol and aims it at the door. End cinematic.]
