Dialogue Edit

Note that the dialogue is copied from the subtitles.

[Joel walks down the stairs, reaching Ellie, Henry and Sam. Infected bang on the doors and windows.]

Ellie: [To Joel.] You're okay.

Joel: Still here. Anybody hurt?

Sam: Uh-uh.

Henry: [Shaking his head.] No, we're good.

Joel: [Backing up.] Alright. I think it's time we quit this place. C'mon.

Henry: [To Sam.] Let's go.

[The party reaches the yard and sneaks through a picket fence. The camera pans to the radio tower in the distance. Cut to opened canned goods on the floor of an old house.]

Henry: [Chuckles.] Shut the hell up.

Joel: Dead serious. [Eats a spoonful.] It was Tommy's birthday. That's all he wanted to do is to just—rent two Harley's and drive cross country.

Henry: [Sits up.] Ah, man. I could die happy if I could just ride one around the block. [Chuckles.] What was it like?

Joel: It was good. Real good [Sets the can down.]

Henry: Good? [Looks at Ellie.] Can you believe this guy? C'mon man, gimme details. Describe it.

Joel: [Laughs.]

Ellie: You know what? You two deserve a little privacy. [Stands up.]

Henry: No, no, Ellie, Ellie, this isn't just any regular motorcycle. Okay? You get on that bad boy, you feel that engine. Nothing like it.

Ellie: Oh yeah? How would you know?

Henry: I've seen it in my dreams... [Sits up and pretends he's riding a motorbike.] Vroom, vroom, vroom...[Laughs.]

Ellie: Okay... [Walks off.]

[As Ellie exits, an awkward moment of silence lingers in the room between Joel and Henry.]

Henry: I don't think anyone from our group is gonna show up.

Joel: [Somberly.] Yeah.

Henry: Worst part of it all—explaining it to Sam.

[Cut to a separate room with Sam.]

Ellie: [Enters.] Well, it's safe to say those two have officially bonded. [Walks closer.] What're you doin'?

Sam: Taking stock of all the food we found today.

Ellie: I see... [Grabs can and reads.] And how are we doing on canned peaches?

Sam: [Grabs can from her.] Did Henry send you?

Ellie: No. Why would Henry send me?

Sam: To make sure I'm not fucking up somehow.

Ellie: Pshhh. I'd say we all did pretty good back there—especially you.

[Sam gets up out of his chair and walks to the window.]

Ellie: Is everything alright?

Sam: [Somberly.] Everything's fine.

Ellie: [Pauses.] Okay... [Walks off.] Well... have a good night.

Sam: [Turns around.] How is it that you're never scared?

Ellie: Who says that I'm not?

Sam: What are you scared of?

Ellie: Let's see... [Playfully.] Scorpions are pretty creepy.

[Sam returns to looking out the window.]

Ellie: Um... being by myself. [Sam looks at Ellie.] I'm scared of ending up alone. What about you?

Sam: Those things out there. [Pauses.] What if the people are still inside? What if they're trapped in there without any control of their body? I'm scared of that happening to me.

Ellie: [Confidently.] Okay, first of all, we're a team now. We're gonna help each other out. And second, they might still look like people, but that person is not in there anymore.

Sam: Henry says that, "They've moved on." They they're with their families. Like in heaven. Do you think that's true?

Ellie: I go back and forth. I mean, I'd like to believe it.

Sam: But you don't.

Ellie: I guess not.

Sam: Yeah... me neither [Turns back around.]

Ellie: Oh... [Takes off backpack.] all this serious talk, I almost forgot. [Pulls out toy and puts it on desk.] There. If he doesn't know about it, he can't take it away. [Puts on backpack and walks to the door.] Alright, I'm pooped. I'll see you tomorrow.

[Ellie exits the room. Sam walks to the toy, picking it up. After looking at it, he throws it at the floor. He sits back in his chair and rolls up the bottom of his pants, revealing a bite. Cut to Ellie sleeping. It is morning. Joel is standing by the window and Henry is stirring a pot on a stove.]

Ellie: [Wakes up. Sniffs then yawns.] Damn. That smells good.

Joel: [to Ellie.] Good morning.

Ellie: Where's Sam?

Henry: I let him sleep in for once.

Ellie: Oh.

Henry: Well if you want him to join us, you can go wake his ass up.

Ellie: Okay. [Walks into Sam's room.] Sam?

[Ellie opens the door and sees Sam twitching erratically from behind.]

Ellie: [Off-screen.] Sam!

Joel: What the hell?

[Ellie is pushed out of the room and knocked to the floor with Sam on top of her. He grunts and claws at her, trying to attack her. Henry backs against the wall, gun in hand.]

Joel: Shit. He's turnin'! [Grabs gun from bag.]

[Henry fires a shot in Joel's direction. Joel falls back.]

Henry: That's my fuckin' brother!

Ellie: Sam!

Joel: Screw it! [Crawls for his gun.]

[Henry fires his gun and shoots Sam. Ellie pushes Sam off her and crawls away as he dies.]

Ellie: Oh, shit...

Joel: [Approaches Ellie.] Ellie? Ellie, are you alright?

Ellie: Uh-huh [Panicked.] Oh my god.

Henry: Sam?

Ellie: Oh no...

Henry: [Crying.] Sam...

Joel: [Trying to console Henry.] Henry. Ellie, stay there. Henry.

Henry: Henry, what have you done?

Joel: [Inches slowly.] I'm gonna get that gun from you, okay?

Henry: Sa...Sa...Sam [Points gun at Joel.]

Joel: [Stops adavancing. Puts his hands up.] Whoa. Okay, okay, easy.

Henry: It's your fault.

Joel: This is nobody's fault, Henry.

Henry: It's all your fault!

Joel: Henry! Henry, no—

[Henry puts the gun to his head and shoots himself.]

Ellie: Oh my god.

[End cinematic.]
