[SHELBY] Thank you.

All right, I think I got one more in me.

It's for two souls that I
knew and loved in another life

who brought me out of the dark.

And f*ck my dumb ass
for losing both of them.

[HENRY] I'm sitting down with you now.

My dad used to be
obsessed with Volkswagens.

That's all he drove.

Then one day...

he found out that the
Volkswagen corporation

cheated on their
greenhouse-emissions numbers.

I found him crying in his Jetta.

And he was like, "I just
don't get how Volkswagen

could've done this."

I'll admit, that was a weird story.


I guess it's just my way of saying...

I know how hard it is

when it turns out someone or something

isn't what you thought they were.

Seth always gave the best presents.

He really thought about the person

he was getting the gift for.

He made coffee for my mom every morning

before she left for work
and made me laugh a ton.

You know, I'd bite the side
of my mouth so I wouldn't,

but doesn't mean I didn't want to.

You're not stupid for
thinking he was great...

'cause a lot of him really is.

You can't deny what he did
on this island or before it.

But just don't feel stupid.

I'm definitely not going to.

[JOSH] Hey, boss.


what's next?

Water run?

Big-game hunt?

Run me through the playbook.

Why are you asking me?

'Cause you're the guy, you know?

The guy who knows what to do.

I'm not, J.

Everything went to shit on my watch.

I'm not.

Hey, I'm a little surprised
he ain't stepping up

to bark orders at us.

Talking about Jocko Malfoy over there.

[IVAN] Yeah, I know who
you were talking about.

I got others.

Ken Doll McDickhead.

Karen O'Gutternuts.

Ooh, ooh, poor man's Macklemore...
