[The scene opens to Bill leading Ellie and Joel down the steps to his basement.]

Bill: Well, here we are. [Turns to Ellie.] You. Don't touch anything. [To Joel.] And you close the door!

[While Bill and Ellie make it down the steps into Bill's basement, Joel closes the basement doors. He walks into the basement and Bill lights a nearby lamp.]

Bill: Let's gear up.

Joel: [Follows Bill, but stops Ellie.] Uh-uh.

Ellie: What? I need a gun.

Joel: No you don't.

Ellie: Joel, [softly.] I can handle myself.

Joel: No. Just...stay here [Walks away.]

Ellie: [Scoffs. Irritated] Fine. I'll just wait around for you two to get me killed.

Bill: [Opens container, takes out shotgun.] Well this goes on record as the worst fucking job you've ever taken.

Joel: Yeah, it's up there.

Bill: [Shuts container and stands up.] How in the hell is Tess okay with this suicide mission?

Joel: It's actually her idea.

Bill: [Places shotgun on counter. Surprised.] Really? Well, then the broad's not as smart as I thought she was. [Joel turns around.] But...[Puts bucket on the table.] fuck her. Seriously, you gotta take that kid back to where you found her.

Joel: [Rests on counter.] Bill, I can't just take her back.

Bill: Then send her packing, let her find her own way. Look, let me tell you a story. [Loads shotgun.] One upon a time, I had somebody that I cared about. [Pauses. Joel looks at him with an air of surprise. Bill presses on.] It was a partner. [Pump action.] Somebody I had to look after. [Drops shotgun on counter.] And in this world, that sort of shit is good for one thing. Gettin' ya killed. [Grabs another shotgun.] So you know what I did? Wisened the fuck up. And I realized it's gotta be just me.

Joel: [Looking away. Hesitantly.] Bill, ain't like's-

Bill: Bullshit. It is just like that- [Pauses. Sees Ellie touching items.] Hey! What did I say to you when we walked down the steps? [Ellie hesitates.] What'd I say?!

Ellie: [Stops touching.] I'm just fixing your...stupid pile!

Bill: [Firmly.] Don't. Touch!

[Ellie scoffs and gives Bill the Finger.]

Bill: [To Joel.] Goddammit. You keep babysitting long enough and eventually it's going to blow up in your face.

Joel: Bill. [Stands up and faces Bill.] Can we please just get on with it?

Bill: [Loads final bullet] Here. [Tosses shotgun to Joel.] Let's get on with it! [Pump action.]

[End cinematic.]
