Time Jumpers (2018) Script

Jaywon? Come on baby, it's time to get up.

Jaywon, let's go, we need to get ready for school.

Come on now, I don't have time to fight with you.


You want milk or juice?

Juice.

Juice what? Juice, please.

You're going to have to get yourself home from school again, today and tomorrow, I have got to work late again.

But I promise I'll pick you up on Friday and we'll do something after school, probably go to the park or something, ok?

Look, Jay.

I know it's a new neighborhood, and it's new kids, you don't know one from another, but you have to make you some friends, baby.

You hear me?

Alright, you're going to make me come into your school in my house shoes and my robe on and embarrass you.

I don't even have a robe. But I'll get one.

Let's go babe.

So once the unit's cancelled, you multiply across the top, multiply across the bottom, hundred and forty-two thousand divided by sixteen O nine, you're going to get somewhere right around 88 miles every one hour. Great Scott, right?

No? Seriously?

I'm getting old. Test tomorrow, Dimensional analysis, alright? Not only do you need to know your metric to metric conversions, but you also need to know your imperial to metric conversions.

Remember that worksheet that I gave you? Yeah.

Not going to happen this time, make sure they're up here, no excuses. Questions?

What if I can't study tonight, man?

I've got uh... I've got things to do.

Yeah. Well... Yeah, cute. Then you fail. I don't know.

Make up your mind, man, your future.

There it is.

Go ahead, get your stuff and go.

Come prepared tomorrow, no excuses.

Hey Mr. Williams, I know you failed the game last night, 21 to seven.

Dude, don't do that to me man, that's rough.

I'll tell you what, those graphs, though, those graphs...

Oh, sorry man.

Looks like you're going to have to go fetch it.

What? You've got something to say?

Excuse me, gentlemen?

Oh, sorry Mr. Williams. We were just taking.

Yeah, we've got some place to be, let's go.

Let's go.


Hey, Jake One, come here, I've got to ask you something.

Where did you get that hat?

Are you retarded? I'm talking to you.

Hey yo, Jerome? Jean-Marcus?

Where you be getting your head-set, yo?

What, do you have something to say?

Give me my hat. What?

Come on, say it one more time, I didn't hear you.

I said, "Give me my hat." Monkey.

Give me my hat.

Hey, this is my hat now, alright?

Finally.


Jay I'm home. Did you eat?

Jaywon? I know you hear me calling you.


Jay I'm home. Did you eat?

Jaywon? I know you hear me calling you.


Jay I'm home. Did you eat?

Is it ok if I sit here?

Oh, I guess so.

You don't talk much, do you?

I guess not.

It's ok. I guess I don't really talk so much either.

Aren't you going to eat anything?

I'm not really hungry.

So why did you get food?

I don't know.

You know, I heard that not eating can actually make you fat.

That doesn't make any sense. I know.

Ah! Dude I'm so sorry I just ruined your stupid little hat.

Oh what? What do you want to do now?

You want to cry in front of everybody?

I got your back man.

Yeah, he's not gonna do anything.

Is it ok if I sit here?

Uh, yeah.

Are you ok?

You look really confused.

Uh, I feel confused.

Math sucks for everybody. Huh?

It was a joke. Oh.

Sorry. It's ok, I'm not that funny.

I think you're amazing.

I think this is the most I've ever heard you talk before.

If I keep talking will you stay here?

You're pretty funny, you should talk more.

You think? Yeah.

You remind me of a friend I had before I moved here, he gave me this bracelet.

So, why did you move here?

My dad died.

Oh. I'm sorry.

Oh, you think you're quick, dude, now?

Come on get up and do something then, Jake One.

His name is Jaywon. Oh, you're his girlfriend now?

Leave her alone.

Oh, what are you going to do about it, Tayshon?

Leave her alone.

And my name is Jaywon. I'm so scared man.

What are you going to do, monkey?

I got your back man.

Yeah, he's not going to do anything.

So, were you there then in class last week?

Yeah, 'cause Jeremy totally farted.

Yeah, it was pretty funny. Yeah.

You know I live very close to you, right?

You do? Yeah.

I have this trampoline, it's kind of cool.

You can come over and use it if you want to.

Ah, cool. Alright.

You're just going to take that, Roman?

Are you ok?

Roman is such a tool.

Roman! What did you just do?

Are you ok?

Let's go, you're coming with me.

Hey, Jaywon!

Ok, so, I texted my mom and she said you can come over later.

Uh, yeah, sure.

Jaywon? Yeah, sorry.

Ok, so I'll come by later?

Yeah, sure. Great.

Again Roman? Again!

Are you fucking serious? Again!

Do you know how hard I fucking work to kick your ass at school?

Do it outside the school, not in the school.

Do it outside!

I'm sick of you! Get a fucking job!

You get a job, you pay for school!

I'm fucking--


Jaywon, come on! I switched my shift!

Let's go to the park or something! Hurry up!

Let's go have some fun!

Uh, I'm so happy to be off of work.

Be happy you don't have to worry about work and a 12 hour shift.

All you've got to do is go to school, you come home, you eat, and that's your day.

What happened to your lip?

I bit my lip at lunch, today.

You still don't know how to chew?

You eat just like your daddy.

And how was school?

It was... it was fine.

Why is my baby smiling?

Oh Lord praise that in Heaven, my baby is smiling!

Ok, ok, I'm not going to bug you about it.

I just want you to be happy.

Oh, I'm so happy for you!

Ok, let's go straight home.

Oh, let me get some chicken and rice.

You love that rice, Lord knows why.

You want some chicken and rice?

Uh, yeah, sure.

Do you mind if I go to a friend's house later on today? A friend?

Oh, I don't know what they put in the water today, but I'll take it.

Yes Jay, you go hang out.

But make sure you do your homework first, ok?

Ok.


I got it mom.


Jaywon?

Hit me again. Why are you in my house?

Jaywon what's going--

What the hell? Come on.

I think you boys need to leave right now.

You hear me?

If you don't get your ass out of my house, I'm calling the police.

You niggers think you can do whatever you want.

Jaywon, call the police, now.

Mom.

Mom!

No.


No! No, no, no, what are you doing?

What is right, Roman! Just stay out of my way!

Got me?


Mom. Mom!

My sweet baby.

Mom, no, please.

Nine-one-one, what's your emergency?

I need help, please. Someone shot my mom.

What is the address of the emergency?

711 Holland Drive. Please, hurry.

Is the shooter still there?

I don't know, I don't know where he went.

Alright, stay there. Someone is on the way.

Alright, please hurry. She's going to die.

Mom, stay.

I just love you so much.

Mom.

No. It should have worked.

Mom, please.

Mom. It should have worked. I'm going to fix this.

I'm going to make it work, mom.

My sweet baby.

No, no. It should have worked.

Just please help.

She's going to die.


Mom. Mom!

I'm so sorry. No.

I did this, mom.

It's my fault.

No. No, come here.

The world doesn't move because we tell it to,

so sometimes we've got to go with what we get.

And you got so much special in you.

Ok? I need you to know that.

Promise me. Promise me that you'll remember that.


Alright, you'll make me come up to your school in my house shoes and my robe on and embarrass you.

Why is my baby smiling?

Sometimes we've got to go with what we get.

You got so much special in you. Ok? I need you to know that.


Jaywon?

It's all set here, he's ready to go.

Ok. Let's get you out of here.

Jaywon! I'm sorry.

I'm sorry sweetie, we've really got to go now, ok?

Wait!

'Cause we're friends.


Buckle your seatbelt for me, will you?

We're going to take you somewhere safe, ok?


Hmm.


Mm.


Hm!


Hey! Out!


I usually walk the perimeter at 12:00, 3:00 and 6:00.

Six is when the morning guy takes over.

Right.

Hank is usually a little late, but just by a couple of minutes.

Man, I know the feeling.

There is nothing I would like more than a cigarette right now.

But I can't.

Ten days, so far. Hm!

Yeah, you'd think it will be the booze or the cigarettes that will take a toll on your heart.

But it's not.

It's women.

They get you in the end. Oh yeah, I hear you. No doubt.

Well, you're young enough. You should do ok.

That's about it.

The office is right over here.

All the numbers are on the wall.

Hank likes a decaf, and myself, I like the real thing.

I like to keep things in order out here.

When will you be back?

Not sure.

Maybe I'll check on you in a couple of weeks.

Not everybody likes working the graveyard shifts.

Never tried it.

Figured I needed something to pass the nights.

You'll find out real quick if it's for you.

Some people don't like the isolation, makes them crazy.

Me? It helps me collect my thoughts.

Sounds good to me.

Alright then. Got the numbers?

Yeah, got it.


Oh, shit.


I don't know, I think she overdosed.

I don't-- I can't get to her.


She's going to be dead by the time--


Huh, cancel that.


Morning. You must be the new guy.

That's me. Kenny.

It's good to have someone on the night shift again, it's been a while.

Been a while? What about Sam?

Sam? How do you know about him?

He used to work the night shift, what's it been, probably seven years or more.

Seven years!

Yeah. He had a heart attack one night and died when a young woman killed herself on a ship.

A young woman? Yep.

In a maroon Grand Prix, right over there.

It's funny, 'cause he always used to say that it was the cigarettes and booze that would get him.

Yeah. We'd go through a lot of guys, but you're good, right? I mean, not everyone can handle the graveyard shift, you know.

Most of them quit after the first night.

It takes a special breed, I think.

It's not always like this? The first night?

Like what?

Nothing. I'll see you at six.

Alright man. Get some sleep.
