               INT. RATTY'S RESTAURANT - CHRIS' OFFICE - DAY

               Sam is sitting at the desk in the office, navigating the
               internet while Remmy stands behind him, reading over his
               shoulder.

               On the screen is the image that Mandy took with her cell
               phone. In the picture, Rod is seen smiling like an idiot
               while Remmy stands behind him, carrying sodas.

               The caption on the photo reads : "REMBRANDT BROWN ALIVE?"

                                   SAM
                         Wow. You do look like him.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         This isn't good.

                                   SAM
                         Are you kidding? The place will be
                         packed.
                             (beat)
                         It'll be packed by a bunch of old
                         people, but it'll be packed.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         They'll just be coming for the
                         sideshow. It's like all those Elvis
                         sightings.

                                   SAM
                         We're talking about Rembrandt
                         "Crying Man" Brown. He's not Elvis.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         He may not be Elvis, but if this
                         turns into one of those internet
                         sensations, we could be flooded
                         with Cryin' Fans.

                                   SAM
                         "Cryin' Fans"?

                                   REMBRANDT
                         That's what they call themselves.

               Sam smirks at that.

                                   REMBRANDT (CONT'D)
                         You think that's funny?

                                   SAM
                         It's pretty funny.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         Yeah, well, I've seen situations
                         like this turn into an problem. 
                             (beat)
                         Y'know, back in my younger days.
                         I'm just saying that we should be
                         ready for whatever happens.

               Sam looks to Rembrandt with a serious expression and nods.

                                   SAM
                         Okay. I know this will be a first
                         for us, but I have faith in our
                         ability to handle more than five
                         customers at a time.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         You keep joking. We'll see how
                         funny it is.

               Rembrandt walks out of the office. Sam looks back to the
               computer screen.

                                   SAM
                         Pretty damn funny.



               INT. RATTY'S RESTAURANT - DAY

               Rembrandt walks out of the kitchen and to the bar where Marcy
               is still sitting. When she sees him, she smiles and perks up.
               When he sees her, he turns in another direction.

               As Rembrandt walks across the room, he runs into Nancy.

                                   NANCY
                         Table four's asking for Rembrandt
                         Brown.

               Remmy looks past Nancy, to table four. There sits a GROUP OF
               JAPANESE TOURISTS. When they see Remmy, they smile and snap
               pictures.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         They got here fast.

                                   NANCY
                         They were in the city on a museum
                         tour. Bussed out this morning.
                             (beat)
                         I think you should play along, you
                         know? They're just visiting.

                                   JAPANESE TOURIST (V.O.)
                         Lyin'o Man!

               Rembrandt takes a deep breath.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         I'll be nice, but I'm not telling
                         them that I'm him.
                             (beat)
                         And I'm not lipping anyone's
                         starkings.

               Nancy smiles. Rembrandt walks toward the table of tourists.

               As he approaches the table, the tourists rush him, smiling
               for pictures and screaming "Cly Rike A Man!"



               EXT. RATTY'S RESTAURANT - DAY

               It's a nice, quiet day outside of the restaurant.

               A black SUV pulls into view and parks across the street from
               the restaurant.



               INT. REMBRANDT'S APARTMENT - NIGHT

               Rembrandt walks into his apartment and hits the button on his
               answering machine. The MACHINE BEEPS.

                                   GIGGLY WOMAN (V.O.)
                         Oh crap, I got through! Are you
                         him? Are you really Rembrandt?
                             (beat)
                         Come back to us, Remmy. Please come
                         back.

               ANOTHER BEEP.

                                   SINGING MAN (V.O.)
                             (singing badly)
                         I was cryin' over you. So hurt I
                         couldn't see though all my tears! I
                         was aching, can't you see? How much
                         you mean to me? And now we're
                         through?

               Remmy winces and presses the button on his machine again. IT
               BEEPS.

                                   WHISPER (V.O.)
                         Beat the system, man. Escape the
                         life. You don't need fame to be
                         happy.

               That one disturbs Remmy just a bit. ANOTHER BEEP.

                                   BRYCE (V.O.)
                         Hey, Max. I just wanted to thank
                         you again for filling in for me
                         today.
                             (beat)
                         Katie's doing a little better.
                         She's sleeping, so that's
                         something.
                             (beat)
                         Anyway, I should be back at work
                         tomorrow. Alex says he'll stay home
                         with her. I guess I'll see you at
                         work.
                             (beat)
                         Bye.

               Remmy is upset by that message. It pains him to think of his
               friends hurting like that.

               ANOTHER BEEP. Silence.

               AND ANOTHER BEEP.

                                   MARCY (V.O.)
                         You really can tell me if this is
                         you. I won't tell. I swear.

               ANOTHER BEEP

                                   AMANDA RYNER (V.O.)
                         Hello, Mr. Mallory. My name is
                         Amanda Ryner, with the TV show,
                         Gozzip. I was hoping that I could
                         sit you down for an interview
                         sometime. If you're interested,
                         give me a call. I can make it worth
                         your while. My number is--

               Remmy turns off the answering machine and walks to a nearby
               chair. He sits down and buries his head in his hands.

               After a few moments, Remmy reaches into his pocket and pulls
               out his wallet. From his wallet, he removes a photograph. He
               stares at this picture for a few seconds, deeply missing
               those whose picture he is looking at.

               ANGLE ON: THE PHOTO

               It's a picture of Remmy with Quinn, Wade, and Professor
               Arturo. The picture is not a color picture. It's got a
               brownish tint to it, making it look older than it really is.

               Remmy takes another deep, pain-filled breath and puts the
               photo back in his wallet.



               INT. RATTY'S RESTAURANT - DAY

               Rembrandt is once again sitting at the bar, drinking a soda.
               Sam is once again behind the bar. 

               BRYCE is standing next to Remmy, talking with the two men.
               She is a woman in her 30's, looking tired and worn, though
               she tries to remain upbeat.

                                   BRYCE
                         Three today. I told them you
                         weren't working until tonight.

                                   SAM
                         Three people. Hardly the mob you
                         were expecting.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         Give it time.

                                   SAM
                             (to Bryce)
                         He's convinced that people will
                         swarm us. This is the new
                         Graceland.

                                   BRYCE
                         This doesn't mean we have to serve
                         those Elvis sandwiches, does it?

                                   SAM
                         No.
                             (beat)
                         I wonder if Remmy Brown ever had a
                         favorite food. We could make a
                         killing on souvenirs.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         I'd really rather let this die
                         down.

                                   SAM
                         Dude, you'd make a horrible
                         celebrity.

               Nancy sticks her head out of the kitchen.

                                   NANCY
                         Bryce, phone for you.

                                   BRYCE
                         Coming.

               Bryce smiles to Remmy and Sam, though it's clear that she
               doesn't want to know whatever this phone call is about. 

               She walks away from the bar, into the kitchen.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         I wish there was something I could
                         do for her.

               Sam looks like he's about to say something, but instead turns
               away. He then grabs a tray of dirty dishes and heads into the
               kitchen.

               ANGLE ON: THE FRONT DOOR

               As the door opens, two new customers walk into Ratty's. They
               are:

               KELLY, a woman in her early 20's. She's pretty, but far from
               being a fragile little flower. She's got a little bit of an
               edge to her.

               And MICK, about 20 years old. Not so edgy. Very mellow
               looking young man.

               As the door closes behind Kelly and Mick, they stop to look
               around the place. Kelly is less than impressed, but follows
               Mick to the bar where they sit down.

               Rembrandt notices the two youngsters as they sit down. Since
               nobody else seems to be helping them, he walks behind the bar
               and over to where they're sitting.

                                   REMBRANDT (CONT'D)
                         If you kids are looking for
                         alcohol, you better have very
                         convincing ID's.

               Kelly is about to respond, but Mick cuts her off.

                                   MICK
                         We're just here for lunch, sir.

               Rather than say anything, Kelly just smiles.

                                   MICK (CONT'D)
                         Do you have a menu that we could
                         look at?

               Remmy grabs two menus from behind the bar and hands them to
               the youngsters.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         You kids from around here?

                                   KELLY
                             (smirks)
                         No.

                                   MICK
                         We're just passing through.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         Right.
                             (beat)
                         Well, you kids look over the menu
                         and I'll be back to take your
                         order.

               Mick nods and smiles to Remmy as Remmy walks off.

               Once Remmy is gone, Kelly turns to Mick and drops whatever
               smile remains on her face.

                                   KELLY
                         If he calls us "kids" one more
                         time, I swear...

                                   MICK
                         Just take it easy. Don't get your
                         excessive eyeliner in a bunch.

                                   KELLY
                         Whatever. Just do whatever it is
                         you're doing, and let's get the
                         hell out of this place. Rural areas
                         give me hives.

               Sam walks out of the kitchen, and over to Remmy, who is
               standing at the end of the bar.

               When Kelly sees Sam, she perks up a little.

                                   KELLY (CONT'D)
                         Then again, you should be thorough.
                         Don't want to rush things.

               Mick looks over to see what Kelly is looking at. When he sees
               Sam, he rolls his eyes and then turns back to the menu.

                                   MICK
                         Whore.

               ANGLE ON: REMMY AND SAM

               Talking at the end of the bar.

                                   SAM
                         She's okay. She'll be out in a few
                         seconds.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         She shouldn't even be working
                         today.

                                   SAM
                         She needs the money.

               The kitchen door opens and Bryce walks out. She tries to
               smile at Remmy, but it's obviously not a real smile.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         You should go home, girl. I'll
                         cover for you.

                                   BRYCE
                         Thanks, but I'm okay. You shouldn't
                         have to keep covering for me.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         That's what friends do.

               Bryce hugs Rembrandt.

                                   BRYCE
                         I love you guys.

               She pulls away and straightens out her apron. After flashing
               another smile, she walks out into the restaurant to do her
               job.

               Remmy and Sam are left feeling helpless. 

                                   REMBRANDT
                         We should get back to work too.

                                   SAM
                         You're working?

                                   REMBRANDT
                         I am now.

               Remmy walks behind the bar, to where Mick and Kelly are
               sitting, still looking at their menus.

                                   REMBRANDT (CONT'D)
                         You kids decide on anything yet?

                                   MICK
                         We're still working that out.

                                   KELLY
                         Could we get some drinks? Coke.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         Yeah.

               Remmy turns toward Sam.

                                   REMBRANDT (CONT'D)
                         Two cokes.

               Sam gets to work on the drinks. Remmy is just about to walk
               away when Mick once again speaks (keeping his eyes on the
               menu).

                                   MICK
                         Do you have any sliders here?

               Rembrandt's heart skips a beat. He turns back to Mick.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         What did you say?

                                   MICK
                         Sliders?
                             (beat)
                         Y'know... little hamburger things.

               Kelly shakes her head, marveling at the lameness of her
               brother.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         You'll have to go to White Castle
                         for those.

               Mick looks up from the menu and smiles.

                                   MICK
                         It was worth a shot. We'll have two
                         bacon burgers, extra bacon.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         How do you want them cooked?

                                   MICK
                         Still moo-ing works for me.

               Rembrandt nods and walks toward the kitchen. Once Remmy's
               gone, Kelly looks to Mick.

                                   KELLY
                             (mockingly)
                         "Do you have any sliders here?"

               Kelly turns on her bar stool and looks out the window.

                                   KELLY (CONT'D)
                             (beat)
                         You are so lame.

                                   MICK
                         Isn't there a mailbox you could be
                         humping?



               INT. RATTY'S RESTAURANT - KITCHEN - DAY

               Rembrandt walks into the kitchen and turns to the COOKS.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         I need two bacon burgers, rare,
                         with extra bacon.

               As the cooks get to work, Remmy goes back to the kitchen door
               and peeks out. He watches as Sam hands the drinks to Mick and
               Kelly. It's obvious that he's suspicious of them.

               Remmy backs away from the door just as Bryce walks through
               it. When she sees Remmy looking out, she gets curious.

                                   BRYCE
                         Something wrong?

                                   REMBRANDT
                         Those kids at the bar. Ever seen
                         them before?

               Bryce looks out at the bar and then turns to Remmy.

                                   BRYCE
                         No.
                             (then, with a smile)
                         Maybe they're more fans.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         I don't think so.



               INT. RATTY'S RESTAURANT - DAY

               Sam is behind the bar, talking on his cell phone.

                                   SAM
                         You know we can do it.
                             (beat)
                         We've done it before.
                             (beat)
                         I don't care. I just... I need to.
                             (beat)
                         Will you look into it for me? Ask
                         around?
                             (beat)
                         Thanks.

               Sam hangs up the cell phone just as Remmy walks out of the
               kitchen.

               Remmy stops when he notices that Mick and Kelly are gone. All
               that's left where they were sitting is some money for their
               food.

                                   SAM (CONT'D)
                         Something wrong?

                                   REMBRANDT
                         Did you see where those kids went?

                                   SAM
                         Sorry. They must have slipped out
                         when I wasn't looking.

               Remmy walks to the window and looks outside. He doesn't like
               the vibe that he's getting from those people.

               Bryce walks up behind Remmy. She speaks quietly to him.

                                   BRYCE
                         The people at table thirteen wanted
                         me to offer you a hundred dollars
                         to sing "Cry Me A River".

               Remmy turns and looks at Bryce, and then looks past her to
               table thirteen. He sees a GROUP OF ELDERLY WOMEN sitting
               there, looking at him. They wave coyly as he looks at them.

               Bryce looks to the ground and speaks even more quietly.

                                   BRYCE (CONT'D)
                         Two hundred if you sing it naked.

               Remmy looks back to Bryce, who keeps her eyes on the ground.



               EXT. ALLEY BEHIND RATTY'S - DAY

               The back door to the restaurant opens and Remmy walks out,
               carrying a bag of garbage and mumbling to himself.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         I hate that song. I've always hated
                         that song.
                             (beat)
                         Didn't even record that song on my
                         world because it was so bad.

               He gets to a dumpster and tosses the bag inside. As he turns
               to walk back to the restaurant, he spots Mick and Kelly
               standing against the wall across from Ratty's, talking
               amongst themselves.

                                   MICK
                         That's stupid. It's really stupid.

                                   KELLY
                         Do you have any better ideas?

                                   MICK
                         I have a lot of better ideas.

               Remmy thinks for a moment, and then starts to walk toward
               Mick and Kelly. He's planning to get answers once and for
               all.

               As he gets closer to the youngsters, Mick spots him and
               smiles.

                                   MICK (CONT'D)
                         Let's ask him.

                                   KELLY
                         Really?

                                   MICK
                         Yeah. It'll be fun.
                             (then, to Remmy)
                         Hey, let me ask you something.

               Remmy stops near them.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         I was just about to say the same
                         thing.

                                   MICK
                         Me first, and then you can go.
                         'Kay?

                                   REMBRANDT
                         Fine.

               Mick smiles wider and proceeds to ask:

                                   MICK
                         Okay, so... What if you could
                         travel to parallel worlds.
                         I mean, what if you could slide to
                         different dimensions? Where it's
                         the same year and all of that, and
                         you're the same person, but
                         everything else is different?

               Remmy is not amused.

                                   MICK (CONT'D)
                         Would you go?

                                   REMBRANDT
                         What is this? Who are you people?

                                   KELLY
                         I told you this was stupid.

                                   MICK
                             (ignoring Kelly)
                         I'm serious. Would you go?

                                   REMBRANDT
                         Look, I don't know who you kids
                         are, but I don't want to see you
                         around here again.

               Remmy turns and starts to walk away.

                                   KELLY
                         Anyone ever tell you that you look
                         a lot like that singer guy?
                             (beat)
                         Rembrandt Brown.

               Remmy stops walking but doesn't turn around right away.

                                   KELLY (CONT'D)
                         It's uncanny, really. 
                             (beat)
                         Isn't it uncanny, Mick?

                                   MICK
                         They could be twins.

               Remmy turns around and walks back to Mick and Kelly, so
               they're not heard by anyone else who might be around.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         What are you doing here?

                                   MICK
                         We're just passing through.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         Enough games.

                                   KELLY
                         We're not the ones playing make
                         believe.

               Remmy is about to say something else, but stops and looks
               back to the restaurant. Talking about this makes him nervous.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         Not here. Not now.

                                   KELLY
                         Then where?
                             (beat)
                         And when?

                                   REMBRANDT
                         We'll meet at my place tonight
                         after my shift. The address is--

                                   KELLY
                         We got it.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         You "got" it? I'm not listed. 

               Kelly smirks and holds up Remmy's wallet.

               Mick closes his eyes and shakes his head.

                                   MICK
                         I apologize for my thieving slut of
                         a sister. We didn't come to cause
                         trouble.

               Remmy grabs his wallet from Kelly and gives her a not-too
               happy looks.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         Tonight. Ten o'clock.
                             (then, to Mick)
                         You better keep an eye on her.

                                   MICK
                         Yessir.

               Remmy turns and walks back to the restaurant, checking his
               wallet along the way to make sure that nothing was stolen.

               Once Remmy's gone, Mick turns to Kelly.

                                   MICK (CONT'D)
                         This is why you don't have any
                         friends.

               Mick starts to walk out of the alley. Kelly follows.

                                   KELLY
                         I have plenty of friends.

                                   MICK
                         Customers don't count.

                                   KELLY
                         Don't make me hurt you.



               INT. RATTY'S RESTAURANT - DAY

               Remmy walks out of the kitchen, into the restaurant. As he
               passes the bar, Sam calls to him.

                                   SAM
                         Hey, Max, you got a phone call
                         while you were out.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         Who was it?

                                   SAM
                         Some guy from TV. He wanted me to
                         pass along his number.

               Sam hands Remmy a piece of paper which has the phone number
               on it.

                                   SAM (CONT'D)
                         I have to admit, man, I was wrong.
                         You're totally getting swamped by
                         Remmy fans.

               Sam looks past Remmy, to the table of elderly women. When
               Remmy looks back, the women wave to him. 

               Remmy turns back to Sam.

                                   SAM (CONT'D)
                         You're a rock god.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         You're funny.

               Sam can't help but laugh at the humor of the situation. 

                                   REMBRANDT (CONT'D)
                         Rembrandt Brown was a genius, man.
                         Respect the dead.

               Sam keeps on laughing. Eventually, Remmy joins in.



               INT. REMBRANDT'S APARTMENT - NIGHT

               Remmy walks into his apartment, closing the door behind him.
               He flips on a light and walks to his answering machine. He
               presses the button and walks toward the kitchen for something
               to drink while he listens.

               The MACHINE BEEPS.

                                   DENISE PRATT (V.O.)
                         Hello? Is this really you? Is this
                         Rembrandt Brown?
                             (beat)
                         I've been a fan of yours for a very
                         long time, Mr. Brown. A very long
                         time.

               The message ends there.

               The MACHINE BEEPS again.

                                   MARCY (V.O.)
                         Rembrandt? Rembrandt, it's me. I
                         just wanted to let you know that I
                         still haven't told anyone about
                         you. You can trust me.
                             (beat)
                         If you want to talk to me, my
                         number is KLondike 5-4385.

               Remmy walks out of the kitchen with his drink and stands next
               to the machine.

                                   MARCY (V.O.) (CONT'D)
                             (long beat)
                         I love you.

               The MACHINE BEEPS.

                                   SAM (V.O.)
                         Max? Hey, it's me. I just wanted to
                         let you know that there was a guy
                         in here a couple of minutes ago. He
                         came in just after you left for the
                         night. He was asking all kinds of
                         questions about you.
                             (beat)
                         Anyway, we didn't tell him
                         anything. He seemed kinda weird, so
                         we just gave him your home address.
                             (beat)
                         That was a joke. Anyway, that's it.
                         See ya.

               Remmy pushes another button on the machine.

                                   ANSWERING MACHINE (V.O.)
                         Messages deleted.

               Remmy looks at his watch, just as someone KNOCKS on his door.
               He stares at the door for a second or two before he moves to
               answer it. He's not looking forward to this meeting.

               When he does open the door, he finds Mick and Kelly standing
               outside. Mick smiles.

                                   MICK
                         Hey.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         Come in.

               Mick and Kelly walk into the apartment, and Remmy closes the
               door, glancing around outside as he does.

                                   KELLY
                         You think we were followed or
                         something?

                                   REMBRANDT
                         I don't know who you are. All I
                         know is that you shouldn't be here.

                                   KELLY
                         You invited us.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         You know what I mean.
                             (beat)
                         You kids have the wrong guy. I'm
                         not who you think I am.

                                   KELLY
                         Really? We're going back to this
                         game again?

                                   MICK
                         Maxwell Mallory. It's a clever
                         name. But it's not your name.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         Who are you?

                                   MICK
                         I'm Mick. This is my sister, Kelly.
                         We're like you.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         Like me?

                                   KELLY
                         Did you bump your head on the way
                         out of the vortex, grandpa?
                             (beat)
                         We're sliders.

               Rembrandt hesitates before answering. He then shakes his
               head.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         I don't know what you're talking
                         about.

                                   MICK
                         Maybe this will jog your memory.

               Mick reaches into his coat pocket and pulls out a small
               device of some sort, which has a company logo on it, for a
               company called "InterDime". He holds it out for Remmy to
               take, which makes Kelly nervous, but she doesn't say
               anything.

               Remmy's eyes lock onto the device as Mick presses a button to
               unlock it and reveals a countdown, currently at twenty-eight
               hours and change.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         My God.

               Remmy takes the timer and holds it in his hands, as gently as
               if it were a bubble that might pop at any moment. He stares
               at the countdown.

                                   REMBRANDT (CONT'D)
                         I never thought I'd see one of
                         these again.

                                   MICK
                             (with a smile)
                         So, you are a slider?
                             (to Kelly)
                         We found one. I knew we'd find one.

               Remmy hands the timer back to Mick.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         I used to be a slider. That was a
                         long time ago.

                                   MICK
                         But this isn't your world. You
                         don't belong here any more than the
                         two of us do.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         This is my home now.

                                   KELLY
                         Good luck with that.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         What's that supposed to mean?

                                   MICK
                         It means that no matter how you
                         might feel about this place, you
                         might not have a choice anymore.

               Mick walks to the closest window and looks out.

                                   MICK (CONT'D)
                         We're not the only people looking
                         for sliders here.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         Who?

                                   MICK
                         The feds.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         This world doesn't have sliding
                         technology. How would they--

                                   KELLY
                         Tell that to our parents.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         What's that supposed to mean?

                                   MICK
                         It means...

               Mick takes a deep breath, looking down at the timer.

                                   MICK (CONT'D)
                         It means that this timer hasn't
                         been activated in twenty-nine
                         years. The last people to use it
                         were our parents.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         They missed the slide?

                                   MICK
                         Yeah. At first, they thought it'd
                         be okay too. They thought they
                         could settle down and have a normal
                         life, even if this place wasn't
                         their home.

                                   KELLY
                         Then the feds noticed that
                         something was up. When they tried
                         to register for passports, their
                         DNA raised a few flags in the
                         system.
                             (beat)
                         They ran like hell, for years.

                                   MICK
                         But each year, the government found
                         out more and more about them and
                         who they were. Their hunt only
                         intensified when they realized what
                         they were dealing with. 

                                   REMBRANDT
                         Did they get caught?

               Mick slips the timer back into his pocket. His eyes stay on
               the ground for a few seconds before he replies to Remmy's
               question.

                                   MICK
                         No. They weren't caught.

               It's obvious to Remmy that their parents also didn't live
               happily ever after.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         I'm sorry.

                                   KELLY
                         Whatever. Long story short, we were
                         raised by some friends of theirs
                         and kept the timer.

                                   MICK
                         It didn't even work until about six
                         months ago. Then it started
                         counting down.

                                   KELLY
                         Meaning, we can finally get off
                         this rock.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         You're really gonna leave? Just
                         like that?

                                   KELLY
                         This isn't home. It's never been
                         home.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         You were born here.

                                   KELLY
                         Doesn't mean we shoulda been.

                                   MICK
                         I've been looking for years. Trying
                         to find someone else like us.
                         You're the first one I've found.
                             (beat)
                         You can come with us.

               Remmy shakes his head.

                                   REMBRANDT
                         No. This might not be my Earth, but
                         it's my home now. I'm done with all
                         that.

                                   KELLY
                         We're not the only ones who've been looking.
                         The government on thisworld's been looking 
                         for sliders too. It's a wonder you've lasted
                         this long.
