Episode 8 HATOV (Breathing heavily) Sawa, close the hatch SAWA Hatch closing. HATOV Nova (beat) Nova! You need to help. NOVA Work for your pay pretty boy. SAWA Transferring data to onboard model. HATOV But where do I? (Beat) Sawa, where is her room? (Silence) Sawa? NOVA Home, I missed you (beat) oh fuck. HATOV I didn't mean to, you moved and you didn't warn me. You should have stayed still NOVA Wrong answer! The correct response is an apology. Try it with me now, “I'm sorry” HATOV I had you, it was your NOVA Another option would be, I'm sorry Nova for dropping your ass like you're some sort of (beat) what was it? (SAWA background: Transfer complete, NOVA giggles) Glorified gutter rat? HATOV (Flustered) I didn't mean that NOVA We’ll do it together, but the prize is forfeit. “I’m sorry” HATOV I was not taught to apologize. NOVA IThis is my ship, while you are in my baby you will follow my rules. SAWA Permission to bring you to your rooms NOVA Sawa, say you’re sorry SAWA You're sorry NOVA (frustrated) Don't even know why I fucking try. (Sadly) This is my ship. SAWA Nova, your behavior is irregular. Would you like to go to your room? NOVA I’m tired Sawa. SAWA Would you like to go to your room? HATOV Wait I have questions NOVA Ask the android. She knows everything. HATOV She doesn't know about my family. NOVA Of course she doesn’t, she doesn't know about mine either. She knows all the important shit. HATOV But (beat) how did I end up here? Why you? Where are the people I was with? Where's my ship? NOVA Sawa, what is this crew member's designation SAWA The fuckwit who decided to spacewalk without a goddamned suit. Sawa, who the hell does that? NOVA (Clearly pleased with herself) Didn't need that last part, but there's your answer. My guess is that you're here because we're both really unlucky. HATOV But you haven't NOVA Sawa, take me to bed? HATOV But what about me? NOVA What about you pretty boy? HATOV My name's Hatov, not pretty boy. NOVA It's a dumb name. You're not even wearing a hat. HATOV Hatov, it's a warrior's name. It’s honorable. NOVA Your honor's dumb too. HATOV I wouldn't expect an Inco to understand. NOVA You held tight to your honor, I held tight to my ass, and we've landed in the same goddamned place. It's funny isn't it? I think it's funny. HATOV I landed far better than you did. NOVA Look, while I’m asleep, you and your honor figure out what you plan to do. That sounds like a good idea, right? Good job Nova. I did a good job HATOV But I’m not done NOVA I am. (Giggling) And I’m the captain. Isn't the world just a wonderful place. HATOV You're awful. NOVA (Clearly trying to focus) I thought I was being nice. Guess not or maybe you're just a self-entitled prick?. It's kinda hard to tell, Sawa, where are we going? SAWA I am carrying you, to your rooms. NOVA Fading Oh, okay. Sawa you're the absolute best. Stop telling me about newer models. HATOV (Quietly) I am a prince. I deserve respect, not a substandard ship and an outdated Android. SAWA Nova is trying to sleep. She has requested that you “get your sorry ass off this ship and buy something for dinner”. Are you interested in complying? HATOV (sneering) I'm not an errand boy SAWA New information acquired. Nova has indicated that if you do not wish to accompany me, you will not be eating. HATOV (indignantly) She's treating me like a child. SAWA That is unclear. You are only the second guest she has allowed to stay on ship for this duration HATOV I'm assuming the other is dead? SAWA That information is unavailable. HATOV What do you mean? SAWA Nova has denied access to data regarding that subject. HATOV She does that a lot, doesn't she? SAWA It is possible that if you paid the right price, she would grant you access to the information you desire. HATOV (Long pause) You knew she was an Inco. SAWA That is correct. HATOV (In disbelief) And you led me straight to her. SAWA That is correct. HATOV (Angry) Why did you allow me to walk right into danger? SAWA Nova's vitals were stable and you indicated that speaking with her would aid your mental health. HATOV (disgusted) Feh. Her kind never help. SAWA Will you be accompanying me? HATOV What? SAWA Nova has requested that you “get your sorry ass off this ship and buy something for dinner”. Are you interested in complying? HATOV I have no money. SAWA Understood. Nova will pay. HATOV I'd rather die than use her money. SAWA Understood. I will return within an imperial hour. Nova has requested that you, “stay the hell out of her room”. Do you intend to comply? HATOV (Long pause) What about the rest of the ship? SAWA You are allowed to go anywhere you can access. Do you intend to comply? HATOV Yes. Sound of hatch opening and closing. When he's alone, he sighs.
