Dialogue Edit

Note that the dialogue is copied from the subtitles.

[As the scene begins, Marlene opens the door and stumbles to the floor upon entrance, still pressing against her wound. Ellie waits to the side in the room. Joel comes in, Tess following.]

Joel: Whoa, whoa, whoa... come on now, get on up. [bends down to help Marlene.]

Ellie: Get the fuck away from her! [Dashes out from the side with her switch blade.]

Tess: Hey, hey, hey! - [Grabs Ellie's wrist.]

Marlene: [Still on the floor.] Let her go!

[Ellie yanks her arm away from Tess' grip.]

Joel: You're recruitin' kind of young, aren't ya?

Marlene: [Slowly stands up.] She's not one of mine.

Ellie: Shit. [Aids Marlene.] What happened?

Marlene: Don't worry. This is fixable. I got us help. [Ellie turns to look at Joel, Tess, and back at Marlene.] But I can't come with you.

Ellie: [Pauses.] Well then I'm staying.

Marlene: Ellie, we won't get another shot at this.

Joel: Hey - [Inches closer to Marlene.] We're smuggling her?

Marlene: There's a crew of Fireflies that will meet you at the Capital building.

Tess: That's not exactly close. [Joel crosses to Tess. Ellie remains with Marlene.]

Marlene: You're capable. You hand her off, come back the weapon are yours. Double what Robert sold me.

Tess: Speaking of which - where are they?

Marlene: Back in our camp.

Tess: [Scoffs, looks back at Joel, who gives off a similar expression, and back at Marlene.] We're not smuggling shit until I see them.

Marlene: [Wearily.] You'll follow me. You can verify the weapons, I can get patched up. [Weakly points at Ellie.] But she's not crossing to that part of town. I want Joel to watch over her.

Joel: [Talk over Ellie.] Whoa, whoa, whoa, I don't think that's the best idea.

Ellie: [Shouts over Joel.] Bullshit! I'm not going with him.

Marlene: [Loudly.] Ellie...

Ellie: [Baffled] How do you know them?

Marlene: I was close with his brother Tommy. Said if I was ever in a jam, I could rely on him.

Joel: Was that before or after he left your little militia group?

Marlene: He left you too. [Glares.] He was a good man.

Tess: Look, just take her to the north tunnel and wait for me there.

Joel: [Disbelief.] Jesus Christ...

Tess: She's just cargo, Joel.

Ellie: [Softly.] Marlene...

Marlene: No more talking... you'll be fine. [Strains to fully stand.] Now go with him.

Joel: [To Tess.] Don't take long. [Turns to Ellie.] And you - stay close. [Ellie glances at Marlene.] Let's go!

[Marlene watches Ellie as she exits their location with Joel. She exhales and rests back on the counter next to her. End cinematic.]
