♪ Nothing's gonna hurt you baby ♪

♪ Nothing's gonna take you from my side ♪♪ Listen, I have been fixing this stereo since before you were born.

Okay. Move. Move.

Let me get back there before you blow someone's eardrums.

These guys are coming.

On my way. Oh, shit!

Mommy, you didn't change the calendar yet?

Oh! Well, I was waiting for you to help me. Ready?

Mm-hmm. One, two, big jump!

Oh-ho-ho.

Go for it. Perfect.

Your, ah, your ideas definitely gave us a head-start but you know, it feels good to be.. kind of doing our own thing.

See anything?

No. Just proof you guys haven't dusted in about ten years.

Mom says you have to set the table.

Yeah, after this level.

Your sister will play for you. Or do you want me to?

I'm coming!

Hey, Dag.

You know how to play? Nope.

Ah!

Dinner bell!

That should do it. What you don't want to..

You don't want to test it first?

No. We're good.

I suppose you're gonna wanna gloat now.

No, I don't do this for the recognition.

It's enough for me that you know.

[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]

I can hold my breath under water for 30 seconds.

No way. Are you kidding me?

But her goal is an entire minute.

Then you can perform underwater heists.

A minute, which her teacher thinks she's gonna be able to do by this spring.

Are you guys staying over till tomorrow, Ethan?

Oh, I wish. We actually have to head out in a little bit and get the lab ready for tonight.

Uh, what's tonight.

Well, with the kind of energy draw that we need for the project, the only safe place that we can really do it is at the A.I. lab which is conveniently empty tonight.

What about my swim lesson?

Can we have a moment?

Ethan? Yeah, yeah, I'm coming.

Listen, I get why you're upset but please try to understand where I'm coming from here.

We were just looking forward to having you home.

Okay. But I'm only an hour away. It's not like I'm...

We haven't seen you in months.

Months.

Okay. Well, I can..

I'll try to be better about that. It's just..

I mean, you know how I get when I...

What about your Aunt Susan?

Who's gonna pick her up tomorrow?

Ah, I don't know.

You guys gotta figure something else out, I guess.

You need to get your priorities straight.

That's exactly what I'm doing, Dad.

Trust me, classes are over on the 12th.

And then you guys have me for the rest of spring break.

But tonight, you've gotta let me go.

I mean, this is the first chance we've really had to test this thing out.

Please. Okay.

Okay.

Yeah. I guess you better go then.

Thank you for understanding.

Uh, I think we're gonna head out.

Don't go yet. Mom, thank you for dinner.

You're welcome. Yeah, don't go, Ethan.

See you guys soon, okay?

I'm sorry. You're welcome. It's okay.

We'll see you soon.

Oh, I'm so sorry.

No, it's my fault, too.

[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]

[MUSIC CONTINUES]

Hey.

Let's do this.

Hey, tonight's the night, huh, Lightman?

Keep walking.

Break a leg, bitches.

Where's the shunt motor? The other case.

Careful. Careful.

We call it ELI. Short for Electromagnetic Induction.

Imagine a world where your phone never dies or appliances come without plugs.

You know, we have wireless internet so, why not wireless electricity.

Our method should have wireless electricity in every home within a decade.

I mean, the same basic principle we've built upon has been around for quite some time but it's never been successfully implemented until tonight.

[BEEPING]

Here we go.

Signal's looking good.

Starting at 100 RPM.

Come on.

Should something be happening?

Just give it a second.

Come on.

Are you sure the bulb works?

Yes, I'm sure. Give it a minute.

The signal's all over the place.

Alright.

Do it..

Now!

These readings are all wrong. What is going on?

Boosting the signal.

Come on. Come on.

Wait. Do you hear that?

Come on.

Ethan, be careful.

Ethan!

Oh, shit!

Ethan, we've gotta go.

Shit! Shit!

[ALARM BLARING]

Blackout is campus-wide. Please respond to building B.

[ALARM BLARING]

I hope we don't get in trouble.

What happened? I've no idea.

Okay.

Time to go.

[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]

You see anything? I think we're clear.

[MURMURING]

[INDISTINCT CHATTERING]


Hey. Hey.

Can't take a break?

Well, um, not right now.

I have to figure this out.

Stop obsessing.

I'm not obsessed.

What are you doing?

Mean.

Well, figure it out later.

I want to figure it out now.

Let's do something fun.

Okay.

Let's make a tent.

A tent? Yeah.

Alright.

[CHUCKLING]

[CELL PHONE RINGING]

What? One second.

Oh, weird.

Hello? Ethan.

You gotta come home. There was an accident.

Yeah. Hold on. A truck..

I don't know, a truck crashed right in front of Mom and Dad.

What.. What.. W... what do you mean?

[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]


[MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SOBBING]

[BIRDS CHIRPING]

[INDISTINCT YELLING]

[ALARM BEEPING]

[SIGHING]


[KNOCKING]

[SIGHING]

Matt!

Okay!

Matt, come on. I mean it!

I need caffeine.

Let's go! Come on!

The bus is leaving. Here we go.

I'm in gear.

[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]

And, ah, if you have any problems with it just let me know.

All good? Yeah.

Just a quarter-inch splitter.

This came in for you today. Oh, thanks.

Oh, thanks.

[HONKING HORN]

See ya! Bye, Matt!

See ya!

Hey. What's this?

Nothin'. Just a part for work.

School good? Yup.

And will he help you with your homework tonight?

Okay, make sure you ask him, okay?

Okay. Bye, Ms. Nash. Okay.

Okay. Bye, Becca. I'll see you tomorrow.

Hey. Ready to go?

Yeah. Alright.

Ah, can I talk to you for a minute, Mr. Lightman...

Ethan's fine. Okay.

I just wanted to talk to you about Becca.

Uh, yeah. What about Becca?

It's just that lately she seems to be having some trouble interacting with the other children.

Look, I just want to help.

Oh, we don't need it. But thank you.

Ethan!

Hey, Tom.

How're you doing?

I'm alright. How've you been?

I haven't seen you around much.

Yeah. They're keepin' me pretty busy at the power plant.

Yeah. You guys holdin' up okay?

Uh, yeah. You know, it's.. It's been a..

It's been rough, but.. Yeah.

I think we're hanging in there.

But, uh, I should probably get back to them.

Sure, alright.

Hey.. Hey, listen.

When Karen died a while back, everybody always said

"You'll get over it."

That's, that's the lie that people will tell you.

But, uh, it gets better.

I promise.

Anyway, you guys need anything, you, uh, just let me know, okay?

Yeah, we will.

Alright, well, um.. Yeah.

Okay. Alright.

I'll see you later. Uh-huh.

Why was Ms. Nash sad?

What do you mean?

When you talked to her, she looked sad.

That's 'cause I wasn't very nice to her.

You should be nice. I like her.

[SIGHING]

[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]

[SIGHING]


[DOOR SHUTS]

Matt!

Okay.

Have a good day. You got it?

Don't forget your bag.

Bye. See ya.

Okay.

Don't forget, um, you've got to..

You've got to go to your sister's swim practice.

I'm going to pick you both up there later today, alright?

Please don't forget. Okay.

Please don't touch my leg next time.

Just say "Okay".

Okay? Okay.

[BEEPING]

Come on.

Ah, what's... This happened before.

I got it.

There.. Perfect. Alright.

Uh, you're all set.

Thank you, sir. Yeah.

Is everything okay, Ethan? Yeah. Sorry, just, um..

Why don't you head home? Get some down time.

No, I'm fine really. I..

I need the hours, so I'll stick around.

Are you serious? It's not even noon yet.

Tuesdays are dead anyway.

Alright.

[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]

[EXHALES]

Ugh..

[SIGHING]

[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]

[MUSIC CONTINUES]


Hey, Matt.

Milady. How was school?

Good.

Ready?

Set.

[WHISTLING]


Come on, come on, come on.. Yes.

[CAWING]

[INDISTINCT CHATTER]

[DRAMATIC MUSIC]

[MUSIC CONTINUES]

Just come on, come on, come on..

[WHIRRING]

[ELECTRICITY CRACKLING]

No!

Agh!

Okay.

[CELL PHONE VIBRATING]

Oh, shit! Oh, shit!

Guys, I am so, so sorry.

How was swim practice? Good.

You know, I thought we'd maybe switch it up tonight.

Maybe make something for dinner, huh?

How's that sound?

Can I help? Sure you can. Yeah.

[BIRDS CHATTERING]

[CHIMES RINGING]

That's not how Mom does it.

Okay. Well, then, what's next?

Too much.

Hey, Matt, can you grab some sodas from the garage, please?

I want a Doctor Pepper.

Did you hear that?


Then I looked back, and she was still half the pool away.

What? That's amazing.

My coach says I might be part mermaid.

You never know. You could start growing a tail or something.

Matt, I already apologized, I don't know what else you want me to say.

How about apologizing for why you were late?

Becca, why don't you give us a second?

You can finish your dinner in front of the TV if you want.

Okay.

How can you go back to working on that thing?

This is important to me, Matt.

I'm not just doing this for me, Matt, okay?

Everyone's gonna want this technology, okay.

This could really change things for us.

It did change things. Okay?

Mom and Dad are dead. It was an accident.

They wouldn't have been driving if you didn't leave to work on that machine.

Are you saying you, you preferred if I died, is that it?

No! You wouldn't have!

Okay, they died because the truck crashed right in front of them.

If... if they'd left earlier, or later, they'd have been fine.

You can't know that, Matt! Yes, I can!

There's no possible way you could have left the exact same time gone the exact same way, and... and at the exact speed.

It's impossible. If you'd stayed, we'd all be here.

You don't know that. Yes, I do.

Alright, bath time, Bec.

Just wash up and then bed.

I'll meet you in your room to tell you a story or something.

You mean your room.

Well, you can't sleep on my floor forever, you know.

Tonight, I can though, right?

Yeah. Okay, tonight you can.


[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]

[MUSIC CONTINUES]

[WHIRRING]


[CLOCK TICKING]


[KNOCKING ON DOOR]

Aw, jeez.

Hey, Marie.

I saw your light and I thought you and the kids might want a little home cooking.

[CREAKING]

[CLOCK TICKING]

[CREAKING]

Anytime. Ethan!

Okay. That's my cue. Um, I gotta go.

Goodnight. Thank you for this.

Goodnight.

What happened? You okay?

Quit spying on me, Matt!

Are you spying on her?

Oh yeah, I was spying on her.

I saw you, Matt! Okay.

Come out of there.

Let's go get ready for bed.

[CRICKETS CHIRPING]

"But still, others say the queen kept it"

"to remind herself of her son's wisdom."

"Still, he couldn't find a real princess."

Come on.

Please.

Stupid!

Goddammit!

[GLASS SHATTERING]

Matt, I'm supposed to be the one to change the calendar.

Don't look at me.

Well, somebody changed it.

Good morning.

Morning.

Excuse me.

Look, there's Tom.

Oh.

Hey.


More parts for your project?

I wanna see your project.

Yeah?

Okay.

So... imagine walking in the house and right away the phone in your... in your pocket starts charging.

Or, or powering a light bulb without a socket.

That's what this machine does or will be able to do.

It's wireless electricity.

That's so cool. Yeah.

I know.

But how does it work?

Well, we gotta turn it on first.

Do you wanna do it?

Okay.

So just press those two buttons at the same time.

These two? Yeah. Just like that.

Good. Now this one.

Good. Now, there's one more. Let me do this.

Um... press that yellow one for me.

This one? Um-hmm.

Okay, last bit. Here we go.

Does it work?

Well, yeah. It's not... it's gonna work.

Very, very soon. Very, very soon.

[CELL PHONE RINGING]

I'm calling back later.

Alright. Well, I think it's time for bed.

You can help me with this tomorrow, though. I promise.

Okay. Lots of work to be done.

Okay.

Hey, it's me again.

Um, I hope you're also doing okay.

If there's anything you need, please let me know.

I'm here for you, and you don't have to go through this alone.

I'm here whenever you're ready.

[DRAMATIC MUSIC]

That was the play at my school last year.

This year it's same.

You have to be in grade four to do it.

Hi, Matt.

Hey... hey, Bec.

Who were you talking to?

Just Mom.

I'm telling her about the school.

You were talking to Mom?

Maybe.

What do you mean? Did you see something?

No. Just... playin' around.

Okay. Cool.

Don't... don't stay up too late, okay?

I won't.

I'll tell you more later.

I love you too.

But when can I tell them?

Ethan!

Hmm? Oh. It's like 7:30!

What?

Oh. Did you eat anything yet?

No, I... I..

Okay, well, there's not really time now.

Can you just, uh, just go get dressed?

Is... is... is Becca awake?

I don't know. Can you just check on her, please?

Did you change this? Um-umm.

Alright. Go, go, go, go. Bye.

Sorry Hi, Ms. Nash. Hi.

Good thing Ms. Nash loves me.

Are you alright?

You look kinda pale, like you might be getting sick?

[SIGHING]

Okay.

Last night, I was in Mom and Dad's room..

...and..

...I felt something weird.

And then I saw something.

Well, what? What did... what'd you see?

I think I saw Mom and Dad.

And it... it wasn't just my imagination or whatever, okay?

I know..

Weird things have been happening in the house.

Like, last night, I... I swear to God there was somebody in my room.

And the date on Mom's calendar keeps changing by itself.

How do you explain that?

Alright, Matt, Matt, just stop it, okay?

[SCHOOL BELL RINGING]

You can't live in that house and tell me you don't feel them.

Mom and Dad are still here.

I... I think the minute you turned on that machine..

Have you ever thought it might be giving out some sort of signal?

Yeah! I know it's..

I know it's giving out a signal, alright?

I'm glad you didn't say any of this in front of your sister.

You would have scared the shit out of her.

Becca told me she was talking to Mom last night..

...right after I saw them!

I think Mom and Dad are trying to tell us something.

Don't you think you should listen this time?

[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]

Just got to school, Matt.

[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]

[SIGHING]

[MUSIC CONTINUES]

Weird.


Becca, did you move Dad's toolbox?

No!

See you later, Lightman. Oh, yeah. Peace.

[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]

I wanna sleep in my room tonight.

Okay.

So, what brought this on?

I'm not scared anymore.

They watch me while I sleep.

[DRAMATIC MUSIC]

Hey.

What did you say to her? What?

Why'd you put that stuff into her head about Mom and Dad?

What are you talking about? She brought that up to me.

Matt, don't lie to me, alright!

If you didn't say anything, why is she suddenly sleeping in her own room?

Isn't that a good thing?

That she's deluded? No, Matt, it's not!

Ethan, she's not deluded!

Jesus, when are you gonna wake up and realize..

Mom and Dad don't like it when you fight.

Ethan, don't be so hard on your brother.

Sorry, Bec. Yeah, we'll try to be more quiet, okay?

Just go back to bed.

[INDISTINCT RADIO CHATTER]

...are amazing.

What would you expect to pay for this fine piece of exercise equipment?

Coming up after the break, we got "Six In A Row."

[INDISTINCT RADIO CHATTER]

Those who believe in the holy spirit shall find the path of righteousness.

[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]

It's Mom and Dad.

♪ Let me down let me down ♪ Now do you believe us?

♪ Let me down ♪♪

[LAUGHING] It's Mom and Dad.

Oh.

[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]

[MUSIC CONTINUES]

[MUSIC CONTINUES]

[MUSIC CONTINUES]

Oh!

What happened?

Nothing. Just dropped something.

It's really good to see you.

Sorry I haven't called. It's just been nuts.

You know, I drive a mini-van now and go to PTA meetings.

It's pretty ridiculous.

But, uh, I actually I wanted to talk to you about our machine..

...about ELI.

What about it?

Well, I figured since we practically made it together you're the only other person that knows the technology as well as I do.

You know, our focus was always on trying to get enough power.

But I think we took for granted that the signal actually worked.

Well, if you don't have a signal you don't have anything.

We... well, I think it does work.

Just not on light bulbs.

[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]

Like, when you feel a presence or... or when someone says they see a spirit and they have a physical reaction to it like the hairs on their arm pricking up or on the back of their neck.

What if there is a scientific explanation for that?

Like, a shift in the electromagnetic energy levels?

Matt, Ethan told us not to turn it on without his permission.

Well, Ethan's not here. I'm in charge.

That's not how you do it.

[WHIRRING]

You know our consciousness has a frequency so, where does all that energy go when we die?

I know this sounds crazy.

But, Hannah, there's... there's stuff going on in my house, okay?

Stuff that I cannot explain.

It all started when I turned on the machine.

[WHIRRING]

Ethan, listen to me.

You have to talk to someone about this.

Look, I came here to have a serious discussion with you not to be psychoanalyzed.

A serious discussion about what, ghosts?

Yeah, this was a mistake.

I gotta get back anyway.

Ethan. Bye, Hannah.

[DOG BARKING]

[BECCA AND MATT SCREAMING]

In here! In here! Ethan, watch!

Go again. Go again.

[LAUGHING]

It's so cool!

This is awesome!

Do you see this?

Isn't this amazing?

I know that was a lot of fun today but... you guys have to promise me you're not gonna turn on the machine when I'm not here, alright?

Okay, I promise.

Alright. Goodnight.

Ethan? Yeah?

I really want to see them.

Mom says the signal needs to be stronger.


Hey. Hey.

For now, we keep this top secret.

We can't tell anybody what we're up to, not even Dag.

Okay?

Yeah.

And I'll talk to Becca too.

I don't know how this is gonna affect her but... I've opened some kind of door whether I like it or not.

But if there's a chance we can talk to Mom and Dad we gotta try.

There's still a long way to go.

I can't really seem to strengthen the signal.

Every time I try cranking up the power, I trip the breaker.

Shit.

So, what are you gonna do?

[CAR APPROACHING]

[INTENSE MUSIC]

[DOOR CLOSES]

Welcome to my workshop.

I was half expecting to find a DeLorean in here.

I wish. How much is it pullin'?

Uh, a lot. A lot.

I just, I can't seem to get enough juice without blowing the breaker.

And I thought maybe you'd have some..

...secret tricks that you could show me.

[CHUCKLES]

Well, there's lots of ways of nabbin' power from your neighbor's houses but, uh, it's pretty complicated super illegal.

Right.

We could probably rig somethin' up temporary.

Yeah? Let's hit the basement.

[INDISTINCT CHATTER]

Hey, Bec.

Were you talking to Mom and Dad again?

Yeah, I was just telling them about my new friend..

...Alice.

They don't think I should talk to her.

Really?

So, do Mom and Dad actually talk to you?

Like, full conversations?

Kind of.

W... why don't, why don't they talk to me?

You're not ready yet.

What does that mean?

That's what Mom says. And Dad?

What does Dad say?

I don't know.

He just wants us to make the machine work better.

[GRUNTS]

That should do it. Alright.

You'll have access to most of your house's power with this.

You're gonna wanna re... replace it with something more permanent eventually but should be fine for now.

No. This is, this is perfect.

I knew you'd have something up your sleeve.

Just remember, you wanna ramp this thing up you turn most of the things off in your house.

Even a little bit of an overdraw it's enough to trip the whole system.

You're gonna wanna make a few adjustments inside there too.

Make sure it can handle the power, huh?

Yeah, I've definitely got my work cut out for me that's for sure.

Maybe some day you'll tell me if this time machine of yours actually works, huh?

[CHUCKLES] Well, I'll need a few more gigawatts for that but I'll let you know.

Well, I'll, uh, see you around.

I'll walk you out of here.

[INTENSE MUSIC]

[DOOR CREAKS]

[YAWNING] Okay.

What do you think?

Modified the design, made it a little bit simpler.

Bec, look!

What do you think?

Huh?

Does that mean it'll work better?

Yeah, I hope so.

That's the idea. Can we switch it back on now?

No, not yet. Very soon, though.

[CELL PHONE DINGS]

I need extra help on cash.

Ah, here we go. That's what we need.

One, two, three, four. That's probably good, right?

Mm-hmm. Yes.

[KNOCK ON DOOR]

Yo, yo! Hey.

[DOOR CLOSES]

What happened in here?

You forget to pay the bills?

Uh, new house rule.

Use as little power as possible.

[SCATTING] Okay.

I'm not supposed to tell you but..

...I think my Mom and Dad might be back.

Yeah, right.

I'm serious.

A... are they here right now? Yeah.

Where? Show me.

Well, the machine's not on.

I think he's working on it. Convenient.

[DAG SCOFFS]

I'm telling the truth, Dag. I swear to God.

Mrs. Lightman? Shut... shut up!

[LAUGHS]

Come on. I'll show you how to beat that level.

Becca!

Becca!

Show time!

I'm in the bath!

[YAWNS]

Hey. You okay?

[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]

Where's Lulu?

I gave her to Alice.

Oh.

I don't think I've met Alice yet, have I?

She's shy.

I'm her only friend.

Oh, okay.

Um... alright.

Well, goodnight.

Ethan?

Hmm?

Does the machine work?

Not yet.

But it will. I promise.

Oh, hello.

Dude, check this out.

You know your hot neighbor? Yeah.

Yeah, she's changing in her bedroom and curtains are wide open.

What?

Where?

She... she was, she was right there. Um..

You idiot! What?

Dude... dude, I swear.

Come on. She was.. Yeah.

What? You were getting turned on by a hat rack?

Dude, it was a woman's rack, okay?

Yeah, right.

Whatever. I'm gonna go take a leak.

Yeah, make sure that's all you do.

Ha, ha. Very funny, asshole.

[GASPS] Jesus! Tom! Tom.

God, you scared me.

Hey.

I need to know.

What's that machine of yours really do?

Well, um..

...the technical term is electromagnetic induction...

Ethan!

Do not lie to me.

[INTENSE MUSIC]

Your machine..

...has a radius beyond this house.

I thought it was some mental thing.

Leftover guilt from, from having moved on.

What have you seen?

My wife.

[CROW CAWING]

[EXHALES]

She killed herself..

...right here in this house.

Truth is..

...I've always felt like she was still here..

...watching me.

Turns out I was right.

She never left me.

[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]


[MUSIC CONTINUES]

Alright. Have a good one. Bye.

See ya.

Hey, Ethan, do you have a sec?

Oh, yeah.

She's doing a lot better since we last spoke.

Good. Yeah, she told me she made a new friend.

Someone named Alice.

Oh. Yeah, she's mentioned Alice to me too.

I, I assumed she was a relative.

Why's that?

Well, Becca said that she lives with you.

[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]

Hey, Jacob, uh..

...do you believe in ghosts?

I... do... not.

Hey, Bec, can you tell me a little bit more about Alice?

Well, she's really nice.

She used to live where we live.

You mean at our house? Yep.

Did she start visiting after Ethan turned on the machine?

I think so.

She's always hiding on me, though.

Why?

'Cause she's afraid of Henry.

That's why I gave her Lulu..

...to protect her.

Who's Henry?

I don't know. I haven't met him yet.

[INTENSE MUSIC]

Hannah!

Hey, Bec!

Come here.

I missed you.

Hey, what's up? I missed you.

Hey, Matt.

Can you please take that inside, and Becca?

Come on, Bec. I'll be in there in a second.

You're staying for dinner, right?

It's up to you.

Yeah. Yes!

Um, I need to show you something.

I had Adnan send me the video.

After watching it a few times, I noticed something.

Okay, that'd be my shadow.

Yours, and what's that?

[EERIE MUSIC]

So, it's always done this, since day one.

More power seems to intensify the signal.

Oh, God. Hannah, I think the signal's reaching beyond the house.

And since I've realized that, I... I've been too afraid to turn it back on.

I mean, Tom saw his dead wife.

It's one thing bringing my parents back but I'm pretty sure everyone else would rather their loved ones stay dead.

But what makes you so sure you're interacting with your parents?

I mean, what if the machine isn't bringing people back exactly just amplifying the energy that's already there?

We're not just encountering an echo, if that's what you're saying.

I mean, Becca's had entire conversations with my parents.

And Alice. Alice?

You just gave me an idea.

Who's Alice?

Let's find out.

[INTENSE MUSIC]

Uh... hm.

Your parents bought the house from a family..

Oh. It's..

The Szerbiaks.

And they moved to Michigan, I think.

And before the Szerbiaks it was..

Hm.

It was Diane and Frank Evans?

Frank worked at my father's practice.

Do you remember anyone ever living there named Alice?

Where did you hear that name?

I haven't looked at these in so long.

That's me, Jo-Jo Gold and Alice.

Alice lived at your house with Mr. and Mrs. Gifford.

She was their foster child.

[SIGHS]

One day..

...she disappeared.

The police looked for her.

We all did.

But she was never found.

There was never any evidence to prove anything but the police were convinced that Mr. Gifford had done something to Alice.
