                                                  PRODUCTION DRAFT

     INT. ANTARCTICA LAB (OPENING MONTAGE)
1A                                                                 1A
     A glowing blue box like a large toaster (the Time Cube) sits
     in a sterile lab shelf, plugged in. A rubber duck sits on a
     cluttered desk. GARY PINBACK (40) identified by "Gary"
     stitched on a white lab coat - enters frame, unplugs the box
     and shoves it in a duffle bag nervously (his face framed out
     of this entire montage). An ALARM SOUNDS. RED SIREN LIGHT
     splashes into frame. Opening credits play on walls and other
     surfaces of this montage before and after Gary runs through
     frames.
     Gary goes to a desk and rushes to steal stationary, staplers,
     pencils, a calculator etc; he sweeps the desk surface junk
     with his arm into the duffle bag on top of the Time Cube. He
     picks up the rubber duck and shoves it in his pocket.

     INT. ANTARCTICA LAB HALLWAY (OPENING MONTAGE)
1B                                                                 1B
     A white lab coat fills the frame then reveals Gary running
     away. Gary's feet running. Duffle bag in frame.
     HIGH ANGLE: long hall, following Gary running.
     ANGLE ON DOOR: it's marked SPACEPORT LEVEL 4, Gary slams into
     it and runs through.
     LOW ANGLE: Gary runs through long high ceiling hall away from
     camera. Red Siren light spins on the wall. Gary goes through
     the far door.
     Gary slips and wipes out, spilling his stationary. He grabs
     his time cube bag and duck and keeps running.

     INT. ANTARCTICA LAB SPACEPORT (OPENING MONTAGE)
1C                                                                 1C
     MEDIUM CLOSE: Gary throws the bag into a hatch and climbs in
     after it, closes the hatch, spins the handle from the inside.
     It's marked with decals reading CARGO DRONE 9.
     A blast door lowers into frame covering the drone and we hear
     SPACE SHUTTLE TAKING OFF SOUNDS.

     EXT. WESTERN ALLIANCE SANITATION STATION - DAY
1D                                                                 1D
     A few space stations, shuttles and satellites fly around. A
     sparse ring of garbage circles the looming earth.
        Space Milkshake Prod. Draft Rev10b BLUE -   11/12/11   2.


    Cargo Drone 9 - small space shuttle cruises away from Earth,
    with matching hatch and markings from scene 1C on rear.
                        SECURITY (O.S.)
              Unauthorized shuttle, return to
              Antarctica Research Station
              immediately! This is your final
              warning!
                        SECURITY 2 (O.S.)
              Okay, blast it.
    LASER BLASTS originating from Earth narrowly miss the
    shuttle.
    A FLASH OF LIGHT - the shuttle is gone without a trace.
                        SECURITY (O.S.)
              Where did it go? Did you get it?
                        SECURITY 2 (O.S.)
              I'm not reading anything. Must have
              totally vaporized it.
                           SECURITY (O.S.)
              Nice shot.
    Elevator music plays O.S. We float back to reveal the WASS
    8518 REGINA STATION in orbit.

    INT. AIRLOCK MODULE (INSIDE AIRLOCK) - DAY
2                                                                   2
    JIMMY ANDERSON (25) wears a jumpsuit with utility belt, has a
    small rolling suitcase, and a bunch of papers in the other
    hand. Elevator music. He stands waiting in a small industrial-
    looking passage with heavy duty inner and outer doors. A red
    light. He's sweating, pale. He presses the button repeatedly.
                        ANTON (O.S.)
              Do you have any fruits, vegetables,
              or other food products?
                           JIMMY
              No.
                        ANTON (O.S.)
              Fever, stuffy nose, cold symptoms?
                           JIMMY
              No.
    Jimmy sneezes.
         Space Milkshake Prod. Draft Rev10b BLUE -   11/12/11   3.


                            JIMMY (CONT'D)
               Allergies.
                         ANTON (O.S.)
               Have you worked on the WENDI series
               computer systems before?
                         JIMMY
               You still have a WENDI?
     The light turns green and the inner door opens, Jimmy enters
     the space station airlock module.
     A sign above the airlock says: "REMEMBER ALL ACCIDENTS IN
     SPACE ARE SERIOUS ACCIDENTS". Jimmy sneezes again, wipes his
     nose, offers his hand to shake. He reads Anton's name tag.
                         JIMMY (CONT'D)
               Captain Balvenie?
                         ANTON
               Call me Anton.
     ANTON BALVENIE (35) snatches the documents, and walks away as
     he reads. Jimmy follows him.
                         ANTON (CONT'D)
               We're very informal around here.

     INT. PASSAGEWAY B - DAY
2A                                                               2A
     Jimmy follows Anton in a walk `N Talk. The walls have yellow
     blast shields over the windows.
                         ANTON
               Jimmy Anderson, United Spaceworkers
               Orbital 108 since 2147, allergic to
               pollen. Certified level... nine
               rating?
                         JIMMY
               Engineer level nine rating.
     Anton is unimpressed. Jimmy stops to poke a panel with a
     loose wire.
                         ANTON
               Level 9 engineers aren't rated for
               central systems repair.
                         JIMMY
               No, they are. I am. Do you want me
               to go back?
     Anton corners Jimmy.
        Space Milkshake Prod. Draft Rev10b BLUE -   11/12/11   4.


                        ANTON
              We got you up here, I'll put you to
              work.
                        JIMMY
              Great. This is my first orbital
              assignment.
                        ANTON
              Let me clue you in. Up here the
              work never stops. There's always
              orbital debris piling up and
              someone has to be in each sector
              with a line of sight on it to keep
              launch vectors clear. Do you follow
              me?
                        JIMMY
              No problem chief.
                        ANTON
              I'm not a chief I'm a Captain.
                        JIMMY
              Sorry, Captain.
    They keep walking, reaching the junction at the end.
                        ANTON
              Just make sure you finish by zero
              eight hundred Zulu. I'm not signing
              overtime forms. Do you know how to
              fix mess hall food dispensers?
                        JIMMY
              No. Maybe. What's the matter?
                         ANTON
              All it's giving is sandwiches.
              That's your next job after the
              mainframe.

    Computer monitors with important data cover the walls, there
    are six stations with rotating chairs and an island of
    consoles in the middle. Flight Specialist TILDA GENERO (25)
    has her feet up, headphones on. The door opens and Jimmy
    follows Anton into the control room.
        Space Milkshake Prod. Draft Rev10b BLUE -   11/12/11   5.


                        ANTON
              The terminal on the fritz is over
              there.
    Jimmy sees Tilda.
                        ANTON (CONT'D)
              That's Lieutenant Tilda Genero. You
              don't need to talk to her.
    Tilda glances at him and turns her chair away from him.
    Jimmy drags his suitcase, hitting everything, and dumps out
    electronic junk near the terminal. He opens up a panel near a
    screen showing static.
                        JIMMY
              There's your problem.
    Jimmy digs around in the panel with wires sticking out.
                        ANTON
              And the sonovac coffee machine is
              malfunctioning. Can you fix that?
                        JIMMY
              I don't know. I might have to take
              the mainframe offline to fix this-
                        ANTON
              Whatever, get it done.
    Anton goes to another terminal and uses the computer.
                        JIMMY
              What's his problem?
    Tilda ignores him.
                        JIMMY (CONT'D)
              I said, what's his problem? ... I
              guess you can't hear me with your
              headphones on.
                        TILDA
              I can hear you.

    In big naval ship name letters it says "WASS-8518 REGINA" on
    the dirty run-down and decaying sanitation station.
    FLASH OF LIGHT: The cargo shuttle appears out of nowhere,
    flying away from the Earth as it was before.

    INT. CONTROL ROOM - DAY

    Tilda has her feet up, she listens to the radio chatter, not
    caring in the least. She presses a few buttons. Jimmy tests
    circuits in the background. She adjusts her headphones.
    Computer monitors show generic scrolling text, radar sweeps
    and simple iconographic status displays in the background.
                        GROUND CONTROL (O.S.)
              Orbital control, this is ground

                        GROUND CONTROL
              Oh hey Bill. Was Antarctica station
              looking for a missing shuttle
              earlier today?
                         BILL (O.S.)
              Roger that. Did you find it?
                        GROUND CONTROL (O.S.)
              Thing is I have an unregistered
              shuttle here tagged with a high
              probability of debris collision. No
              life signs on board. Think it's the
              same one?
                        BILL (O.S.)
              Negative ground control. The one
              Antarctica lost had a passenger.

    The small drone appears moving (relatively) slowly toward the
    general area of the Regina station.
    A METAL SCREW floats in space (shallow focus). The drone is
    coming toward the screw from the distance.
                        GROUND CONTROL (O.S.)
              Take a look at the collision

        Space Milkshake Prod. Draft Rev10b BLUE -     11/12/11   7.


                         BILL (O.S.)

    Tilda lazily leans over and presses the button.
                        BILL (O.S.)
              Sanitation station eight five-
                        TILDA
              Station Regina here. I've been
              monitoring. We're not reading
              debris in our sector.
                        BILL (O.S.)
              Why don't you check again.
    Tilda is annoyed and hits some buttons.
                        TILDA
              It's probably a sensor glitch.
                        BILL (O.S.)
              That's a negative, the debris
              appears to be between class 2 and
              class 3. Can you whack it with a
              proton beam?
                         TILDA
              Ground control, it's too big for a
              proton beam if it's class 3. You
              know that.
    Anton comes over to Tilda and looks at the monitor.
                        ANTON
              What do they want now?
                        TILDA
              A cargo drone is coming through.
              They've got a collision alarm.
                        ANTON
              Looks too small for a laser sweep.
                        TILDA
              Probably just a false alarm. What
              do you want me to tell them?
                        JIMMY
              Do you want me to take a look at
              the sensors?
         Space Milkshake Prod. Draft Rev10b BLUE -   11/12/11   8.


                         ANTON
               No. Keep working.
     Anton hits some keys, then presses the radio button.

               This is Captain Balvenie of

                         ANTON
               Not our problem. The book says it's
               too small for lasers. Check your
               book down there.
                         GROUND CONTROL (O.S.)
               How about a particle beam?

     An intercom on the wall next to a bunch of bubbles. VALENTINA
     NOVAK (33) takes a bubble bath in a water tank, with a rubber
     duck. A towel is hung on equipment nearby. Anton sounds like
     he puts the mic too close to his mouth.
                         ANTON (O.S.)
               Valentina to the control room
               immediately please. Valentina to
               the control room.

               How about you just take a pod out
               there and pick up the debris?
     She turns to listen to the voices on the intercom.

               like? I'd like my computer fixed
               right now. Fix it.

      Red lights and indicators flash. A siren sounds. Tilda and

                Are there any salvage crews in the

                          TILDA
                Nope. But they're scrambling two
                teams. They must really want the
                pod.
                          ANTON
                You think there's something good in

     Tilda turns around from her terminal.
                          TILDA
               I need to monitor the salvage

     Tilda points at her headphones without turning to him.

     Anton takes off his space-pants and hands them to Valentina.
                         ANTON
               Fine, fine. There's nothing wrong
               with the other suit anyway. I don't
               care.

     his shirt and pants and they both dress in space suits.

               This could be the haul we've been
               waiting for. They're flipping out

                         VALENTINA
               We're fine. I'll get on the coms.
               Check out what that humming noise
               is. We might have taken damage.
                         ANTON
               Report to me in ten.
     Tilda rolls her eyes and goes.
                         JIMMY
               What can I do?
     Valentina shoves her space suit into Jimmy's hands. She and
     Anton walk off in the other direction. Jimmy tries to hang up
     the space suits on the rack. They don't fit. He tries again.
     Jimmy drops the space suits and follows after Tilda.

      Tilda walks past large devices, storage tanks, incinerators
      and cargo containers. The HUMMING is louder. She sees the
      Time Cube glowing with blue light.
      A FLASH OF LIGHT! The humming dies down. Tilda looks around
      the scary, poorly lit and greasy room.
      Tilda turns suddenly and sees ANOTHER TILDA, in a dirtier
      jumpsuit, walking towards her. They both stop and stare at
      each other.
                          TILDA
                Who the hell are you?
      TILDA2 is disoriented and scared. Her jumpsuit has different
      computer symbols instead of standard station number stencils.

      Jimmy walking looking for Tilda hears A SCREAM O.S. He goes
      around a corner at the end of the hall where it came from.

      INT. ENGINEERING MODULE - DAY
30B                                                               30B
      Tilda2's arms framed, stuffing a female human leg into a
      hatch marked ORGANIC WASTE RECYCLING. She bends down and
      picks up a clean dry Tilda jumpsuit off the floor.
      Around the corner in a different area of the room, Jimmy
      pokes his head in and looks around.
                          JIMMY
                Tilda?
      Jimmy finds a way around a large machine just as Tilda2 zips
      up her jumpsuit, facing away. She has strange geometric lines
      like tatoos on her back. He's struck by her picturesque
      beauty and doesn't realize he's staring. She turns and meets
      eyes with him. He's very embarrassed and ducks back behind
      the machine.
                          JIMMY (CONT'D)
                Is this the laundry room? I was
                looking for the mess hall. Sorry if
                I surprised you. I thought I heard
                something. I didn't see anything.
      The heavy machinery starts grinding and humming. CRUNCHING,
      SAWING AND SPLATTERING SOUNDS. The light turns from red to
      green.

                         JIMMY (CONT'D)
               Okay well I'll see you on the
               bridge. Sorry.
     Jimmy turns and starts to head out, bumping into Tilda2 with
     a start. She's different; dissociated, laconic, very nervous.
                         JIMMY (CONT'D)
               I was just going.
     Tilda2 (henceforth "Tilda") stares at him, shivering.
                         JIMMY (CONT'D)
               Hey, what's the matter?
     Jimmy pats her shoulder. She looks up and they meet eyes.
                         JIMMY (CONT'D)
               Are you ok?
     She turns and runs away. Jimmy watches her go out the hatch.
                         JIMMY (CONT'D)
               You forgot your shoes!
     Jimmy picks up some sneakers. He doesn't notice blood
     dripping out from below the organic waste reprocessor as he
     goes.

     The HUMMING SOUND again: The Time Cube sits in deep shadows,
     glowing with faint blue light - the light dims and the
     humming stops.

     INT. COMPUTER ROOM - DAY
32                                                                32
     The wall is marked W.E.N.D.I. Orbital Station System
     Computer. Jimmy sits next to the computer with Tilda's
     sneakers. Wendi has a female voice this scene only.
     Jimmy hits buttons on the keyboard. The computer turns on.
                         JIMMY
               Wendi?
                         WENDI (O.S.)
               Hello Jimmy.
                         JIMMY

                         JIMMY
               Does Tilda have a boyfriend?
     The intercom buzzes. Anton voice is distorted to the edge of
     comprehensibility.
                         ANTON (O.S.)
               Jimmy, how are the repairs coming?
               Jimmy? Get on the intercom Jimmy.
                            JIMMY
               Anton?
                         ANTON (O.S.)
               You'd better be getting all over
               this mainframe problem. I want
               hourly reports every half hour.
                         JIMMY
               I can't understand-
                         ANTON
               Just get on it, God damn it!
                         JIMMY
               Roger that.
     Jimmy opens the top binder from a tall stack of binders. The
     screen turns off.
                            JIMMY (CONT'D)
               Wendi?
     He hits buttons. It doesn't work now.

     The vast view of the Earth from space. Pretty. The sunrise
     terminator approaches Western Canada, as we drift slowly
     backwards into peaceful space. Nothing else is in orbit. The
     Sanitation Station comes into view.

     Jimmy sips juice from a sippy cup and goes back to soldering
     wires in an open panel near the screen. He wears safety
     goggles, reads from a technical binder marked SONOVAC SYSTEMS
     REPAIR. The tall stack of binders is now a mess of them
     opened, scattered around.

     Valentina sits at the communications station and holds a
     radio microphone. Anton works at consoles across the room.

                    VALENTINA
          This is the western alliance
          sanitation station Regina, in
          orbit, does anyone receive this
          message? Please respond. This is
          the sanitation station Regina,
          Please respond.
She puts down the microphone, tweaks some knobs and pushes
some buttons.
Anton comes over to her and presses buttons at her station.
                    VALENTINA (CONT'D)
          What are you doing?
                    ANTON
          I'm trying to figure out what
          you're doing wrong.
She slams shut a procedure binder. Jimmy comes in.
                    VALENTINA
          Have you got the mainframe back up?
                    JIMMY
          It's taking me a bit longer than I
          thought. I might need to call down
          for some parts.
                    VALENTINA
          There's nothing out there.
                    ANTON
          I don't see how that's possible. It
          has to be a communications problem.
                    VALENTINA
          We're having a communication
          problem right now. I'm telling you
          there's nothing out there. We need
          Wendi to do an analysis.
                    JIMMY
          Why didn't anyone tell me? I have
          to get back to Earth.
                    VALENTINA
          That's not happening any time soon.
                    JIMMY
          So we're stranded.
The full weight of their predicament settles on them.

     A large table, kitchenette, free weights, shake weight, book
     shelf with board games. Val's Rubber Duckie sits on the shelf
     with a few other personal items. Anton cycles an elliptical
     exercise machine. Valentina comes in with leotards and
     stretches next to him. Anton stops.
                           ANTON
               Any luck?
                           VALENTINA
               No.
                         ANTON
               You're worried. Don't worry. We're
               going to be fine.
     He leans in to give her a kiss, she leans away from his kiss
     as she stretches. He sits to stretch next to her.
                         VALENTINA
               I'm going to put in for
               reassignment.
                         ANTON
               Not this again. Val-
                         VALENTINA
               There's always something on deep
               space transports. A chance to see
               the galaxy a little.
                         ANTON
               It's all the same.
                         VALENTINA
               Then maybe I'll realize what I'm
               missing and come back.
                         ANTON
               What about us? What about me?
                         VALENTINA
               I'm sick of you. I want to puke
               every time I hear your voice. You
               completely disgust me in every way.
                         ANTON
               If this is because of the other
               night, I already told you that was
               because of the bad egg sandwiches I
               ate after the refrigeration system
               went down. That was a one-off
               thing.

                         VALENTINA
               It isn't because you had
               indigestion.
                         ANTON
               Is it the sex?
                         VALENTINA
               The sex is fine.
                         ANTON

     Tilda pokes a water filtration system. A sign says DANGER
     HIGH VOLTAGE. She pokes the wires. A SNAP of high voltage
     short circuit. She takes out her finger, it's burnt a little.
     She pokes the power box again, searching and exploring,
     unfamiliar with the world around her and troubled.

     Jimmy, Anton and Val play scrabble. Val makes a word.
                         VALENTINA
               "Giraffe." Eighteen points.
     Anton writes down the score. Jimmy turns the board to face
     him. Jimmy places tiles as he eats his soy protein sandwich.
     He spells "blorxr" and writes down his points. Valentina
     eyeballs him. Anton rotates the game board. He ponders what
     word to make. He moves his letters around.
                         VALENTINA (CONT'D)
               That's not a word.
                         JIMMY
               Do I have to play?
                         ANTON
               We need to take breaks. Keep to a
               schedule. Schedule says scrabble.
               How's your sandwich?
                         JIMMY
               Not very good.

          Well that's all there is until
          breakfast tomorrow.
                    JIMMY
          What's for breakfast?
                    ANTON
          Sandwiches.
                    VALENTINA
          Thirty seconds Anton.
                    JIMMY
          Is there anything to eat besides
          sandwiches?
                    ANTON
          Can you repair food dispensers?
                    JIMMY
          No.
                    ANTON
          Well then there's nothing else.
                    VALENTINA
          Twenty seconds.
                    ANTON
          So Jimmy, is there someone back on
          earth waiting for you?
                    JIMMY
          Yes. I have a girlfriend.
                    ANTON
          Do you actually have a girlfriend?
                    JIMMY
          There's a girl I'm friends with, I
          was planning on asking her to out.
                    ANTON
          Are you actually friends?
                    JIMMY
          We know each other. I know her.
                    VALENTINA
          Times up Anton. Minus one point.
Tilda comes in and looks through the cupboards in the
kitchen.
   Space Milkshake Prod. Draft Rev10b BLUE -    11/12/11   24.


                    ANTON
          Hi Tilda. Want a sandwich? We saved
          you the pickled onion and cheese.
She ignores them.
                    ANTON (CONT'D)
          What are you looking for? What's
          she looking for?
                    VALENTINA
          Fifteen seconds overtime. Hurry up
          and make a word.
                    ANTON
          I'm making a word.
Tilda knocks little containers around searching the
cupboards. She carelessly knocks things off the shelf.
                    VALENTINA
          Five seconds.
                    ANTON
          Tilda would you stop making that
          racket? What the hell are you
          looking for?
                    VALENTINA
          You need to make decisions faster.
                    ANTON
          I don't rush into things and make
          irrational snap decisions, like
          some people.
                    VALENTINA
          Leaving you isn't a snap decision.
                    ANTON
          It's totally inexplicable.
Jimmy gets up.
                    JIMMY
          You guys need a minute?
                    ANTON
          Sit down. We're playing scrabble.
A FLASH outside the window. Tilda turns, very scared, and
looks out the window. Jimmy goes to the window next to her.
                    JIMMY
          What was that?
        Space Milkshake Prod. Draft Rev10b BLUE -   11/12/11   25.


     SMASH! The sound of an impact, like a car accident. The room
     trembles. METAL CREAKING NOISES. Things jiggle and fall off
     the shelves. Tilda stares at Jimmy, scared.
     Val and Anton are bracing themselves for more. The shaking
     stops.
                         ANTON
               That was an impact.

     Red lights blink, warnings flash on monitors. Valentina and
     Anton run in and sit, hit buttons. Jimmy takes a station and
     presses buttons too, scared.
                         ANTON
               Pressure nominal. Jimmy, check the

               Nice of you to join us, Tilda.
     Valentina looks through binders stacked on a shelf, finds
     one, pulls it, and flips to a page.

     Jimmy's computer screen shows the exterior of the space
     station - a DENTED PANEL with something yellow stuck in it.
     The screen is too fuzzy to tell what it is. Anton looks over
     Jimmy's shoulder.
                         JIMMY
               What is that?
                         ANTON
               It looks like... I don't know. An
               asteroid would have done more
               damage.
                         JIMMY
               It's small... and yellow.

      Valentina Tilda and Jimmy wait by the doors. The red light
      comes on in the airlock. Anton is in the airlock in full
      space gear. Red light turns off inside airlock. AIR HISSING
      SOUND. The inner airlock hatch opens.
      Valentina helps Anton off with his helmet. In his gloved hand
      is a slightly burned rubber duckie. Anton takes off his suit
      top and pants, down to his underwear.
                           VALENTINA
                Hmm.

                          ANTON
                It was dented into the outer hull.
      Valentina takes the duckies and walks off.

      Valentina sits at the table. Two rubber ducks on the table -
      her regular one and the slightly burned one from space. Anton
      comes over to her with Jimmy, in his underwear. Tilda sits at
      the far end.

                One.
      Anton picks them up, looks them all over, looks at the
      bottoms. One says V+G, the other says G+V underneath.
                          ANTON

          Fond memories.

          Fond?
Anton takes one and looks at the V+G written on the bottom.

          Yes. What's wrong with that?

                         ANTON
               Are they more fond or less fond
               than memories of me?
                         VALENTINA
               I don't know. It's not all about
               you. I want to get off this station
               Anton. I wanted out of here before
               we were stranded. I need a change
               of scenery. I'm sick of this place.
                         ANTON
               So, whoever gave you the rubber
               duck has nothing to do with your
               change of heart.
                         VALENTINA
               No. It has nothing to do with Gary.
                         ANTON
               Oh, Gary? So we have a name now.
               Right... Gary. So what's Gary up to
               these days? Do you keep in touch?
     Valentina grabs her duck, bath robe and towel from the room.
                         VALENTINA
               I haven't spoken to him in years.
               He was just a friend.
                         ANTON
               You've just happen to have a
               growing collection of his bath
               toys.
                         VALENTINA
               This is none of your business. You
               and I are separated now.
                         ANTON
               We are?
     Val grabs her 2nd duckie from Anton and exits.

          Wendi, can you identify me?
                    WENDI (O.S.)
          You are Station Engineering
          Specialist Jimmy Anderson. You are
          a Libra. Your favorite color is
          blue. Your favorite food is
          chocolate cake.
                    JIMMY
          How are you doing?
Jimmy types, flips switches, leafs through binders and tests
circuits under the following scene.
   Space Milkshake Prod. Draft Rev10b BLUE -    11/12/11   35.


                    WENDI (O.S.)
          All systems are nominal, however I
          have not received a mission
          protocol update from Western
          Alliance Ground Control. How are
          you feeling?
                    JIMMY
          It looks like your social interface
          program is back online.
                    WENDI (O.S.)
          Yes Jimmy, it is. I am pleased that
          you noticed.
                    JIMMY
          Why do you have a man's voice?
                    WENDI (O.S.)
          I am operating on default human
          interface settings.
                    JIMMY
          Anton hates it.
                    WENDI (O.S.)
          Would you like to select a
          different interface protocol?
                    JIMMY
          No stay like this. Can you show me
          the station video monitors?
A grid of grainy black and white video cameras comes up.
One screen shows Valentina walking down the hall angrily with
her bath robe, towel and 2 rubber duckies.
Another monitor shows a medium shot of Tilda kneeling in
engineering area next to a wall panel marked T518. She looks
around nervously and opens it.
                    WENDI (O.S.)
          Jimmy, I appear to have an open
          access port in my T518 array.
Jimmy zooms in, it's grainy. Tilda pulls out a row of
circuits labeled "T518 D7", removes a small circuit board and
looks at it. She closes the panel.
Jimmy watches Tilda on the monitor screen: she sits back and
unzips her flight suit. He leans in towards the monitor.
                    JIMMY
          Why are women so complicated?
   Space Milkshake Prod. Draft Rev10b BLUE -    11/12/11   36.


                    WENDI (O.S.)
          If you wish to improve a social
          relationship I recommend engaging
          in friendly conversation.
                    JIMMY
          What's your T518 array used for?
                    WENDI
          T518 is a language processor for
          human interface systems.
On the monitor we can see Tilda take the circuit board and
jam it into her torso on her right side.
The screen garbles slightly with electrical interference.
Jimmy zooms in but it's hard to see what's going on. Tilda
rubs her side, there's no mark and the circuit board is gone.
She zips up her jumpsuit and tries to talk with fax sounds.
                    TILDA
          ZZZBBOOOORRRRRPXKXS!
Jimmy watches the monitor with distracted fascination.
                    JIMMY
          Have you ever been in love, Wendi?
                    WENDI (O.S.)
          I love being the orbital sanitation
          station mainframe computer.
                    ANTON (O.S.)
          You didn't fix the voice.
Jimmy quickly switches off the video monitor screen and turns
around. Anton comes in.
                    JIMMY
          It's stuck this way.
                    ANTON
          What's the male version of Wendi?
          Winston? Walter? Walter.
                    WENDI (O.S.)
          Wendi is used for both sexes.
                    JIMMY
          I knew a guy named Wendi. I called
          him Wendi once. Maybe by mistake. I
          think his name was Wendal.
                    ANTON
          We're calling you Walter from now
          on. Okay Walter? Walter. Respond.

               What's wrong with the coffee
               machine?
                         ANTON
               How should I know?
                         JIMMY
               I'm not sure this power converter
               is going to hold and we're out of
               spares. Wendi could go down again.
                         ANTON
               Go look in the salvage bay, there's
               probably something you can use.
                         JIMMY
               Ok.

     The room is dark and a bit spooky, besides the better-lit
     area around the tub where Valentina splashes around. Her bath
     robe is hung nearby. She looks at her rubber ducks, focus on

          on relationship counselling?

     Jimmy pulls aside some junk and scrap, finding Gary's Time
     Cube they salvaged from the crash. It looks useful to him.
     The device has a control pad and sockets for plugs. It's a
     little heavy. He turns it over and examines it.

                         WENDI (O.S.)
               Professor Pinback theorized that it
               was possible to transport life

                situations than this.

        You just need a positive attitude.
        Try a smile once in a while. Can
        you do that?

               Let a smile be your umbrella. Can
               you get back on the team?
     Tilda stares at him.
                         ANTON (CONT'D)
               I'm not hearing an answer.
     Jimmy comes in with the Time Cube and cables from the salvage
     room and puts it on the table.
                         TILDA
               You've found the time cube.
     They share astonishment at Tilda's finally speaking.
                         JIMMY
               Is that what it is?
                         ANTON
               What's a Time cube?
                          TILDA
               We have to make sure it never
               activates.
                         JIMMY
               What do you mean by activate? I
               mean it was on when I found it.
     Valentina comes in with her bath robe. She sees them and the
     Time Cube.
                         VALENTINA
               What the hell is going on? I heard
               this strange humming noise...
                         TILDA
               All life on earth just ended.
                          JIMMY
               I thought all life on earth ended
               last week.
     Valentina throws down her bath robe and goes to her quarters.
                         VALENTINA
               Great Anton.
                         ANTON
               Now she's mad at me? This one isn't
               on me.

     It's dark and scary. The duckie scuttles in and out of
     shadows, leaving a thin trail of mucus. Just before it
     disappears we see its silhouette rear up near the door and
     let loose a bone-chilling throaty howl of rage.

     Valentina is pacing, drying her hair. Anton barges into the
     room, with Valentina's bath robe in hand.
                         VALENTINA
               She's speaking now? Since when? And
               why is she telling you all these
               things and not me?
                            ANTON
               Calm down.
                            VALENTINA
               I am calm.
     Valentina throws a towel at him.

               Why are you mad at me?
                         VALENTINA
               Because you're excluding me.
                         ANTON
               If you were in the control room
               instead of taking baths, you might
               know what's going on. By the way,
               you and this Gary guy were a lot

                          ANTON
                Wendi told me.
                          VALENTINA
                That's an invasion of my privacy.
                          ANTON
                So it's true. I knew it.

                What is this?
                          TILDA
                This is a chronotronic quantum flux

                             JIMMY
                Oh yeah?
      He reaches for it...
                          TILDA
                It's the most dangerous machine
                ever created.
                             JIMMY

                          ANTON
                Lets put the Gary stuff aside.
                Maybe you used to see him, maybe
                you were just friends, whatever.
                The important thing is you're over
                him and you're with me now. Lets
                not fight like this.
                          VALENTINA
                You're right Anton.
      Anton is encouraged by her sweet voice and friendly tone.
                            ANTON
                Good.
                          VALENTINA
                What's the point of me fighting
                with a shit for brains, whiney
                little half pint control freak with
                no balls, stinky stupid fuck with
                no sense of style, charm or
                personal hygiene.
                          ANTON
                So you don't want    to talk right
                now. I'm going to    go get a cup of
                coffee. Why don't    you adjust your
                attitude and join    me when you're
                ready.

      Tilda puts her finger near Jimmy's arm. A small spark jumps.

                Ow. Do that again.

     Jimmy eats a sandwich at the table next to Tilda. Anton comes
     in and tries again to make a cup of coffee.
                         JIMMY
               Tilda's a robot.
                         ANTON
               No she isn't.
                         JIMMY
               I'm pretty sure she is.
     Valentina comes in, sees the Time Cube glowing. Anton pulls
     out a chair for her.
                         VALENTINA
               Nice to hear you speaking again
               Tilda.
     Valentina sits away from Anton.
                         TILDA
               I've never spoken before today.
               Where I come from, we don't need to
               speak.
                         VALENTINA
               We've all heard you speak.
                         TILDA
               I've come from a mirror universe.
                         ANTON

          We discovered that this station is
          the nexus point of all the damaged
          realities. We had just once chance
          to send me here, to take your
          Tilda's place, in order to stop
          this time cube from being
          activated.
                    ANTON
          My station is the nexus?
                    VALENTINA
          But we didn't activate anything.
          Did you turn it on?
Jimmy lifts the box.
                    JIMMY
          It's got some kind of port at the
          bottom which I haven't figured out.

          Did you turn it on?
                    JIMMY
          No. Not really. It turned itself
          on. I might have dropped it. It was
          on before I found it.
BEEP BEEP BEEP - a beeping sound.

      Valentina comes in. The O.S. BEEP BEEP BEEP from before plays
      in here. She hits a button on a control panel and it turns
      off.

                Okay. Come to the rec room. I made

                Who's been messing with the-
      Valentina looks to her left. There's a rubber duck sitting
      there. She's confused. It moves toward her. She's paralyzed
      with horror. It has tentacles peeking out under it.

                It hurts to exist. I shouldn't be

                I need my time cube. Valentina,

      Gary moves very close to her. He puts a tentacle on her hand.

                someone from using this Time Cube,

                          TILDA
                An accident happened.
                          ANTON
                Is she around here? Somewhere?
      Anton eats his sandwich.
                          TILDA
                No.
                          ANTON
                Well, you can see why I'd be
                concerned to hear a member of my
                crew is missing.
                          TILDA
                Things didn't go as planned. I
                couldn't explain it to the other
                Tilda. Professor Pinback isn't here
                like he was supposed to be.
                          ANTON
                Wait a minute. Gary Pinback?
                          TILDA
                Yes.
                          ANTON
                That's the guy who's supposed to be
                on this station?
                          TILDA
                Yes.

                          GARY
                There was an accident. The cube was
                activated in my escape and I was
                shunted through a dimensional
                vortex into this stupid body. But I
                was on my way here for you.
                          VALENTINA
                For me?
                          GARY
                I promised you that one day I'd
                give you the world. I came here to
                keep that promise. I can take you
                away from all this.
                          VALENTINA
                Gary... That was years ago.
                          GARY
                Until I can activate the time cube
                I will continue to bleed across the
                dimensional boundary... I don't
                know what I will become.
                          VALENTINA
                That sounds painful.
                          GARY
                It's very painful. I need your help
                Valentina. There isn't much time.
      ALARMS GO OFF - RED SIREN LIGHTS. Valentina turns to look
      around. She turns back and Gary is gone.

                bitch is on my station I'm going to
                find him. You two stay put.

                The cube has been activated.
                There's nothing I can do to stop
                it. Infinite universes will be

                          JIMMY
                We can try. Look, last week I never
                thought I'd be working orbit.
                Everyone told me it was impossible.
                I didn't have the training. I
                didn't have the stomach. People
                said, that Jimmy, he's never
                getting off Earth. But I got myself
                together and paid a guy a hundred
                and fifty bucks to forge my
                certification forms and the next

      in. He presses a button and it turns off the siren sounds and
      cherry lights.

                She's probably the one who blew out

          You brought him in.
                    ANTON
          When did I do that?
Valentina notices that Gary (Duck 2) is in front of Anton,
hiding on a shelf, dripping slime.
                    VALENTINA
          He's just come for the time cube.
          That's all he needs to get back to
          his dimension and put things right.
Its eyes glow faintly red.
                    ANTON
          Sure. Naturally. He just wants his
          time cube. He's not interested in
          you?
                    VALENTINA
          He's the only one that can send us
          home and set things right.
Anton follows her gaze and sees the duck there.
                    ANTON
          What the hell is that?
Anton moves around and slowly approaches it. He takes out his
laser blaster and charges it. The Duck cowers and backs
deeper into the corner of the shelf.
                    ANTON (CONT'D)
          Anton, you're scaring him.

                That's Gary.
      Anton slowly moves closer to it.

                What? This thing?
      Anton points his laser. Gary trembles with fear.

                No!
      Anton pulls the trigger. It goes click click.

                That's odd. The batteries must be-
      Gary LEAPS at Anton's head. They crash through the room as it
      attacks him. Papers fly from binders thrown around. Anton
      screams. The laser pistol is knocked to the floor, broken.
      Blood splatters against a console, and across Valentina's
      face. Val screams, staring at the off-screen attack. Anton is
      thrown down, he turns around and tries to see where the duck
      is. He's scratched up. It scuttles away down the hall behind
      him, out of his sight.

          Look what he did.
                    VALENTINA
          He was frightened.
                    ANTON
          Whose side are you on?
A noise down the hall. Anton pulls the handlebar off the
elliptical exercise machine and holds it like a club as he
goes to one side of the room next to the hall.
                    ANTON (CONT'D)
          Can you see it?
                      VALENTINA
          No.
Anton peeks down the hall quickly. He reaches to draw his
laser blaster - his holster is empty.
                    ANTON
          Something is coming. Stay back.

                Anton wait!
                          ANTON
                I won't hurt him much. I'll just
                subdue him, okay? That's fair,
                isn't it?
      Jimmy runs around the corner into the room.
                          ANTON (CONT'D)
                AHHHH!
      Anton's war-cry is spent on Jimmy who jumps back frightened.
                          JIMMY
                AHHH!
                          ANTON
                What are you doing?
                          JIMMY
                I'm looking for you!
                          ANTON
                We have a guest onboard.
      Tilda follows carrying the Time Cube.
                          JIMMY
                What happened to your face?
                          ANTON
                A rubber duck attacked me.

                What?

      Tilda opens a compartment and locates sandwiches. Jimmy sits
      tinkering with the busted laser pistol through the scene.
      Valentina takes the sandwiches.
                          JIMMY
                So it's some kind of animal?
                          ANTON
                Yes. And it's growing.
                          JIMMY
                How big is it?
                          ANTON
                Like a small dog maybe. And it
                bites. Hard. What have you got?

                Rice, butter, carrot jam.

                 JIMMY
       We checked with Wendi. It doesn't
       look like Gary is on board.
                 ANTON
       The duck... is Gary.
                 TILDA
       How?
                 ANTON
       Valentina has something she'd like
       to tell us.
                 VALENTINA
       I don't know all the facts.
                 ANTON
       Go on. Please.
                 VALENTINA
       The time cube sent him here through
       the duck. It was an accident.
                 JIMMY
       This is the Gary that Tilda says
       destroyed Earth. He's a duck?
                 VALENTINA
       He's on this station. He's part
       man, part rubber duck, part
       something else.
                 ANTON
       And I'm going to kill him.
                 VALENTINA
       How is that going to help?
                 ANTON
       He tried to eat my face, Val.
                 VALENTINA
       He's going through a lot of
       changes. He's not thinking
       straight. But he's the only one
       that set things right if we give
       him the Time Cube.
                 TILDA
       He's not here to help us.
                 VALENTINA
       I suppose you've helped us?

          I'm with Tilda on this one for now.
                    VALENTINA
          You're what?
                    JIMMY
          Me too.
                    VALENTINA
          Shut up Jimmy, no one asked you.
METAL CREAKING NOISE O.S., sound of cables snapping.
                    ANTON
          Sorry Val. Plan A: we get control
          of Gary. We're going to assume he's
          only going to keep smashing things.
          Jimmy, Tilda, work on Wendi. If we
          can get eyes on him and close doors
          remotely we can trap him-
Another SMASHING noise echoes through the frame of the
station. Distant creaking metal sounds.
                    ANTON (CONT'D)
          Val and I will look for the duck.
                    VALENTINA
          No.
                    ANTON
          You said yourself he's not thinking
          straight. I'm definitely not giving
          him the Time Cube - that's what got
          us into this mess.
                    JIMMY
          Do we have any weapons?
Anton opens a drawer. He spills out a handful of disposable
plastic knives on the table.
                    ANTON
          Everyone take one.
They do. Jimmy bends his.

                Laser's broke. Make do.
      Jimmy grabs the pieces of the broken laser pistol, plastic
      knives and half a sandwich in his pockets, then puts the Time
      Cube into a backpack. Anton takes the backpack.

                I'll take that.
      Jimmy lets him have it.

       Anton searches through the room. He's jumpy. Scratched up
       papers, claw marks, burns, broken pieces of equipment. Slime
       trails.
       He bumps into a hanging cable, startling him. But it's not a

       Tilda gives Jimmy a little kiss. Suddenly his eyes open wide
       as something happens when their lips touch, time slows down
       and everything gets brighter, fades to:

       Flash back to reality, Tilda moves away from Jimmy. They're
       back to when they were mid-kiss. Jimmy falls over.

      She reaches into the computer panel and finds an RS232 cable.

      Jimmy turns around. Tilda sticks the RS232 cable down the
      front of her jumpsuit bottoms area and feels around with the
      cable until she finds her socket. CLICK.

          Hello Wendi. Central logic
          processor is up. All systems are
          online - the control interface has
          been disconnected.
Tilda keeps accessing the computer with her brain.

          It was the duck.

          Gary? What is it trying to do?
                    TILDA
          Look.
The monitor shows a wire-frame diagram of the space station
in motion, with trajectories and readings. A red circular
line indicates the orbit of the station, and it intersects
with Earth. The little icon of the station is slowly moving
on that line toward the `red zone'. "WARNING" text blinks.
                    TILDA (CONT'D)
          The station's orbit has been

          atmosphere.
                    JIMMY
          How long do we have?

                The intercoms are locked out. We
                have to get to the control room.
      Tilda turns away, unplugs the cable with a shiver and pulls
      the cable out of her pants. She zips up.
                          JIMMY
                You're going to have to explain
                that later.

      Valentina looks under the communications equipment. There's a
      half-open compartment at the end of the room, filled with
      deep shadows. A wall panel is also open.
      She moves slowly toward it. She peeks in the wall panel. It's
      empty. She moves on toward the other compartment.
      Valentina reaches slowly toward the open compartment, her
      heart racing.
                          VALENTINA
                Gary? Are you there Gary? We have
                to talk.
      She opens the compartment - just a pair of dusty headphones
      inside. She relaxes.

       The room is full of dark corners; each one seems to hold the

                 Anton!
       Anton spins around. Tilda points past him. Anton looks. The

       handle!
                              ANTON

                 Oh.
       Anton lifts his foot. It squeaks.
                           ANTON (CONT'D)
                 It's the normal one.
       A SCUTTLING SOUND behind them. They turn and look.
                           TILDA
                 Did you hear that?
       Anton goes to her. They catch a glimpse of tentacle poking
       out of Anton's room. It disappears around the corner.
                           TILDA (CONT'D)
                 It's horrible.

       and backs away.

       Anton comes out of his room followed by Tilda, peeking around
       and trying to see where Gary might be hiding in his room
       across the hall.

       Tilda stands in the hall of the crew quarters outside the

       around. He creeps toward the door.

                 Where are you? Hiding. Not so tough
                 now are ya Gary? You'd better hide.
       Scuttle sound. Anton goes left, toward his coffee table, re-
       aiming his handlebar, guessing where Gary is hiding. Anton is
       almost at the door.
       Anton turns right. The shadow of Gary (Duck 3) rises up next
       to his bed: the tentacles were just the tip: it's grown
       larger now. It bares teeth.
                           GARY

       Anton prepares to strike. The duck trembles with excitement
       and rage. Anton grits his teeth.

       Tilda watches from the hallway outside Anton's room:
       A SUDDEN FLURRY OF MOTION as Gary attacks Anton, SNARLING.
       Pillows and household items are torn up and thrown around.
       Crashing sounds. Tilda ducks down, unable to watch the

       crunches and punches. Clanging.
       Blood sprays on the wall next to Tilda. She's horrified.

      of himself and then slinks back.

                you want to keep living on this
                rusty space dumpster, forever? With
                this Anton guy?

                You didn't need to hurt him Gary.
      Gary's eyes glimmer in the darkness. Some tentacle too.

      around her as she disappears into the dark.

                What are you doing?
                          VALENTINA
                I'm leaving Jimmy. I'm done.
                          JIMMY
                Where are you going?
      Tilda appears behind Valentina and hits her in the back of
      her head with the toolbox. Valentina goes down. Valentina
      rubs her head.

                Ow.
      Tilda helps Jimmy up.
                          JIMMY
                Thanks Tilda. Oh no, she let Gary
                loose.

      Tilda finishes binding Valentina to a chair with tape.
                          VALENTINA
                Give Gary the time cube. You don't
                know him like I know him. He'll
                help us. He'll save us.
      Tilda is not convinced. Jimmy is on the soldering damaged
      circuits in a the control panel. He wears safety goggles. The
      Time Cube sits on the floor behind him.
                          JIMMY
                He's a monster.
                          VALENTINA
                It's just a phase.
      Jimmy closes the console he's working on. Presses buttons.
      The room shifts to the left.

                There's too much damage to fix in

      A low RUMBLE sound.

                We can't allow Gary to have total
                control of time and space.
      Jimmy gets back down into the computer panel. Tilda kneels
      next to him, watching. Valentina looks at the Time Cube on
      the floor and wriggles in her duct tape bonds.

      Jimmy and Tilda press buttons and flip switches on the
      consoles as they talk. The room shimmies and shakes more and
      more. The RUMBLE sound increases. Jimmy turns one more
      switch. BLEEP BLORP: the computer screen flickers on.

                Leave Wendi to me.
      Jimmy reaches into an open mess of cables in a compartment
      and tosses Tilda an RS232 cable. She turns away from him,
      unzips her jumpsuit and plugs in her plug as before once
      Jimmy stops staring. Jimmy goes under the central console and
      sneaks glances to figure out what exactly she's doing. She
      zips up again with the cable sticking out, and concentrates.
      The monitors flash on. Jimmy spills out the tool box, grabs
      tools and sticks his head back under the central console.

      The room shimmies and shakes. Valentina is straining against
      her duct tape wrapping. It's loosening. They don't notice.
      Jimmy is wriggling around in the confined area.
                          TILDA (O.S.)

                How's it going?!
      Jimmy is jammed deep in the panel, where he uses a circuit
      tester, probing. He wipes off his sweaty brow.

                Here?
      Tilda is focused on the monitors, doesn't notice Valentina is
      loose of her duct tape and stands up behind them.

      Tilda sits, searching with her brain using her RS232 cable
      patch into the computer. Abstract data scrolls fast down the
      screens. It reflects in her eyes.
                          JIMMY (O.S.)
                Is this it?
                             TILDA
                No. Hurry.
      Valentina gently picks up the Time Cube and marvels at it for
      a brief moment before backing out behind Tilda and out the
      door, stumbling on the bulkhead a little and running off.
      Jimmy reaches way deep into the panel and probes a circuit.
                             JIMMY

      Jimmy reaches as far as humanly possible with his logic probe
      and touches a difficult-to-reach circuit way in the back, in
      a maze of jumbled blinking lights, cables and circuits:
                          JIMMY
                There's your problem.
      He pulls out a smoldering burned circuit.
                          JIMMY (CONT'D)
                The midrange data processor is
                burned out. I think we need it to
                control the thrust vector.

                You can't fix it?

                parts.
      This is serious.
                          JIMMY (CONT'D)

                          TILDA
                No we're not.
      The room shakes more. Tilda unplugs the RS232 cable from the
      wall and grabs a cable cutter from Jimmy's belt. She pulls
      down her jumpsuit shoulder exposing her back tattoo lines
      again. Jimmy watches in fascination.
      Tilda jabs herself and cuts a 6 inch hole in her abdomen.
      There's no blood. She reaches in and feels around.
                          JIMMY
                I wish you would warn me if you're
                going to do something like that.

   Space Milkshake Prod. Draft Rev10b BLUE -    11/12/11   81.


Tilda grunts and grimaces - something rips and her hand comes
out with an organic/electric device with blinking lights.
Wires and cables poke out of the hole in her stomach and drip
with goo, she tucks them back in painfully with one hand and
holds herself closed as she hands the device to Jimmy.
                    TILDA (CONT'D)
          Try using this.
Jimmy takes it with a mixture of horror and curiosity.
                    JIMMY
          Don't you need it?
                    TILDA
          I have two of them.
Jimmy notices Valentina is gone.
                    JIMMY
          Where's Val?
Tilda turns.
                    TILDA
          The time Cube!
                    JIMMY
          Hold on, let me plug this in.
Jimmy ducks back under   the panel and stuffs the strange
device into the socket   of the circuit board. Sparks fly and
lights start blinking!   The SOUND of the midrange data
processor humming back   to life. Green lights on monitors.
Jimmy clamps alligator clips around a broken cable and
scrambles up. The monitor screens show green blinking
symbols. Tilda uses a staple gun to close her wound, showing
no sign of pain, tucks away her RS232 cable and zips up.
                       JIMMY (CONT'D)
          It worked!
Jimmy sees one monitor still shows ERROR.
                    JIMMY (CONT'D)
          It's not working.

                I'll be okay. But there's only one
                way to target the thrusters.
                             JIMMY
                How?
                             TILDA
                Manually.

                          TILDA
                Yes outside.
      The digital vector diagram monitor shows their orbit falling
      into the `danger zone' past the `Kármán line'. Jimmy sees
      Tilda suffer.
                             JIMMY
                Take this.
      Jimmy hands Tilda Anton's blaster - Jimmy found time to
      repair it with wires, duct tape, and junk.

                Gary? I'll kick your ass.
      Anton struggles to sit up. He falls back down. Val puts down

                Gary! I have the Time Cube!
      Gary stays in the shadows, nearby. We can see him quiver and
      jiggle as he speaks, suggestions of a jaw moving, but lots of
      amorphous tentacles and bulging monstrous shapes.

       Gary tosses the bent exercise machine handlebar to her feet.
       She picks it up and looks at Anton.
       Anton manages to sit up, faces her without any aggression.
                           ANTON
                 If this guy is going to make you
                 happy, go ahead. I understand.
       Val sees Anton in a different light.

                 It's ok.

       Atmosphere blows past him. The air is thin but they're moving

       Gary comes out of the shadows ('duck 3'). He's a hulking
       monstrous thing. Valentina is not intimidated. Anton is a
       little intimidated, still weak from his injuries.
                           GARY
                 So this is how it's going to be.
                           VALENTINA
                 Yup.
       Valentina swings high at Gary and catches him upside the
       head. He snarls and bashes her with a tentacle, knocking away
       the handlebar. She gives him a few punches, kick in the duck
       nuts. Gary knocks her down by the sandwich machine. Anton
       grabs a chair. A tentacle comes at Anton - it pulls him over
       by his neck, he drops the chair, and is thrown down by the
       hatch.
       Gary side steps quickly, looking around. He sees the Time
       Cube on the counter and sends a tentacle at it.
       Valentina stabs the tentacle with a plastic fork and it pulls
       back, spraying green blood and mucous in an unexpectedly
       heavy geyser over Valentina, Anton and the room.
       Valentina throws the time cube over the table to Anton, who
       catches it.
       Gary refocusses on Val and moves toward her. He bashes her
       with a tentacle sending her over the table.

       Jimmy clambers along the rail that he's clipped into. He
       comes to the thruster. We hear his rapid breathing in the
       space suit. Behind him is the expanse of cold space. The
       station rotates until the Earth takes up the view behind him.

       Jimmy reaches a cone-shaped thruster. He clips in an extra

      Gary and Val turn toward the hallway: Tilda's there. She
      throws the laser blaster to Valentina who catches it and aims
      at Gary. Gary freezes, afraid.
      Valentina takes great pleasure at pulling the trigger.
      ZZZZORCH! A beam blasts from the blaster at Gary, instantly
      causing an immense SPLAT!
      Valentina opens her eyes to see it rain Gary bits.
