03x01 - Now More Than Ever, We Care About You

- Juliana. Take this.
- What is it?

A way out.

- (GUNSHOT)
- (GASPS)

- What is this?
- It's newsreel film.

- The Man in the High Castle.
- It shows us winning the war.

- Yeah, but we didn't win the war.
- Once the Fuhrer dies, there will be war.

- (MAN SPEAKS GERMAN)
- TAGOMI: This is our moment.

We must not hesitate to seize it.

They're building an atomic bomb.

JULIANA: You take me to the Man in the High Castle.

Ask him if he wants to see me.

- You're him, aren't you?
- I'm Abendsen.

Hawthorne Abendsen.

Every film where the Japs won the war, sooner or later San Francisco is wiped out by an A-bomb,

every one except this one, where this b*st*rd dies as a Nazi

- in an alley somewhere.
- His name is George Dixon.

What's he got to do with Trudy?

He's her father.

JULIANA: I need a diplomatic visa to get out of the Pacific States.

TAGOMI: But if by trying, you compound tragedy...

My name is Juliana Crain.

I work with Joe Blake. I need asylum.

SMITH: I have orders for you, from Berlin, from Reichsminister Heusmann.

JOE: And what makes either of you think

- I want to see him?
- He's your father.

Your father is one of the most powerful men in the Reich.

He could get you anything you want.

Anything he wants to give me, I don't want it.

HEUSMANN: Have you heard of Lebensborn?

Racially desirable women volunteer to have the babies at the Lebensborn birthing houses, to be raised in line with the party ideals.

This was your birthing house, Josef.

Reichsfuhrer Himmler.

I'm your godfather.

I look forward to seeing a great deal more of you.

ADLER: Your son has a serious disease.

You know what must be done.

- Give me more time.
- Withholding his diagnosis is a crime against the state.

If you won't take care of this today, I'll have to do it tomorrow.

(MUFFLED YELLING)

JOHN: What happened is just a terrible tragedy, Alice.

What if it's more than that?

TAGOMI: I went to the park to meditate.

It brought me to a strange place.

It was San Francisco, but not this San Francisco.

You are different than what I remember.

You are free.

Why do you want this?

TAGOMI: Proof that something like this should never happen again.

KIDO: Our empire does not possess such a device.

The film is real.

TAGOMI: With your help, it is my intention to show this film.

SMITH: What you're seeing, gentlemen, is a hydrogen bomb, with a magnitude a thousand times more powerful

- than anything in our arsenal.
- HEUSMANN: I know the casualties will be higher, but that may be necessary.

You can't build a better world if there's nothing left of it!

- What the hell's going on?
- Your father's a traitor, Joe.

Sieg heil! Sieg heil!

Sieg heil! Sieg heil!

Sieg heil! Sieg heil!

But I won't tell them about what you or Father said.

Be proud of me.

Tell Father to be proud.

(SOBBING): Thomas, please don't go.

(DISTORTED, ECHOING SCREAM)

You knew what would happen. You showed me the film,

- and you knew.
- No, the only thing

I knew was that you, Juliana Crain, were the only hope any of us had.

You were in the films, over and over again.

Some of the people you knew, we started seeing them, too, revolving around you, like an atom... they would change, different behavior, different relationships, different points of view.

I knew that was the key.

The goodness in you, Juliana.

That's what I put my money on.

Hey, sis.

Yes, of course.

Of course.

You just try to be brave, try to... do the best you can, like Thomas would.

All right?

John.

Today is a day of remembrance and a day for celebration.

It is indeed, Reichsmarschall.

- REPORTER: Mr. Smith, this way!
- REPORTER : Over here, sir, please!

- Mr. Smith!
- Mr. Smith, can you look this way, please?

REPORTER : Mr. Rockwell, look at the camera!

- REPORTER : Mr. Smith.
- REPORTER : John Smith!

- One picture, please!
- REPORTER : Mr. Smith.

Edgar, so glad you could make it.

How could I have missed such an occasion, Helen?

Your son is an inspiration to the youth of the entire Reich,

- a hero to last a thousand years.
- Mm.

May I?

(MUFFLED CHATTER)

WOMAN (MUFFLED): Mrs. Smith?

Mrs. Smith?

Mrs. Smith, please, any special words for our readers on this very special day?

It would be appreciated.

It would mean so much.

I... Mrs. Smith.

Thelma.

Who is that?

Nicole Dormer.

Daughter of Ernst Dormer.

As in Dormer Pharmaceuticals?

I've tried Dormer's sedatives, but I had no idea he made such world-class stimulants.

Introduce me, Edgar.

Perhaps later.

You behave.

(CHUCKLES SOFTLY)

(URINATING)

I'm told to expect a call from Berlin this evening.

Scheisse.

What's his mood?

Apoplectic.

He's particularly upset about losing three of his precious Lebensborn.

I told you we should've sent more men.

Well, we had to go lean and mean, George, keep Smith from sniffing this out.

Pin the failure of the raid on a traitor in Smith's office.

You must have sh1t on all of 'em.

Which I'm saving for a rainy day.

Edgar, it's about to f*cking pour.

Look, whether this shite sticks to the bottom of his boot or to yours, Smith has other vulnerabilities.

Mrs. Smith, who, at : this morning, at this solemn occasion honoring her son and in the presence of the Reichsmarschall of North America, smells like a goddamn distillery.

Dear friends and neighbors, we are most privileged to have with us the Reichsmarschall of North America,

George Lincoln Rockwell.

We gather here today to honor... a true hero of the Reich.

When the hour of decision came for Thomas Smith, he rose to the occasion in a way that admirably reflected upon his father.

Without wavering, without self-pity...

- Zoom in.
- ... Thomas Smith, on his own, made the ultimate sacrifice for a community, a country, a cause.

Surely, Thomas Smith shall forever stand a peerless exemplar... of Aryan youth.

And as we remember this day, let us absorb a great lesson:

In the hour of decision, in the hour of crisis, when we look for leadership, and for courage, to whom do we look?

Pan to the Smith family.

Are you nuts? I'll be shot.

If you don't, I'll have you shot.

ROCKWELL: ... covered in medals.

(AUDIENCE CHUCKLES)

But sometimes, we are better served when we look to... a boy.

A boy... with a dream in his heart.

Sieg Heil!

AUDIENCE: Sieg Heil! Sieg Heil!

Sieg Heil! Sieg Heil!

Sieg Heil! Sieg Heil!
