F.R.E.D.I. (2018)

GUARD: We weren't
expecting you till tomorrow.
BRODY: Well, the
timeline's moved up.
GUARD: That's why the
doc was stressed out.
GUARD: Yeah, she arrived
just before you did.
BRODY: Hey, Palmer?
Get out here, where are you?
No, no.
- No, no, no, no, no, no.
- Palmer!
Sir, we got a problem.
- Yes!
- Home run!
We gotta go now.
DANNY: So, you
decided what you're doing
for your science project?
JAMES: You mean what you're
doing for my science project?
Uh, nope.
Sorry, bro, you are on your own.
And I mean, it better be good,
because my regression
cell synosteosis
is gonna blow Dunkle's mind.
Look, James, are
you even listening?
Let me guess,
calculating the probability
that Natalie will
go out with you
in a predetermined
set of scenarios?
Fat chance.
Might wanna start running the
numbers on last man on Earth.
Wait, you can do that?
Dude, you're so
gonna get Dunkled.
She's not gonna flunk me.
Last thing that lady
wants to see is me
falling asleep in
her class next year.
You gotta start trying, man.
You know, you gotta try harder.
You gotta work for
it, it's not just
gonna come to you, you know?
And I'm only saying this
because I'm your friend, but...
I mean, come on dude, I can't
keep doing everything for you.
Did you see that?
What do you think
they're looking for?
A dead body?
Looking for Kim K.'s
talent, I don't know.
Let's find out.
Come on, come on.
BRODY: We lost her.
WILLIAMS: We can't let her
get away with this technology.
BRODY: Grant's gonna kill us.
Who do you think they are, dude?
I don't know.
Dude, seriously?
BRODY: Palmer, we
just want the device!
It's Arachnacorp
property, come on!
Execute Motocom Protocol.
Certainly, Dr. Palmer.
PALMER: You'll be safe here.
Whoever they are,
they're obviously freaking
out over something major.
Something valuable.
At night?
Come on, maybe it's hunters.
Maybe it's serial killers.
Maybe we should go check
it out in the morning.
Wow, that's a great idea.
Besides, I'm not
skipping school tomorrow.
Come on, this is crazy.
After, we'll go after.
- It's my dad.
- Oh.
I gotta go.
Yeah, dude.
Ha, Buster, come on.
Oof, you stink.
9:45 on a school night, man.
You gotta hear this.
Danny and I saw these people.
They had flashlights
in the woods.
It's probably just someone
out for a night run.
- But...
- I'm sure it's nothing.
Listen, I have a early meeting
with the bank about the shop,
can you get yourself
up in the morning?
I think I can manage.
Or, you know, I can wake
you up before I leave.
No, thanks.
I'll leave some cash
on the kitchen counter,
just get yourself
a pizza in case
I'm running late, all right?
Half pepperoni for me, please.
You know processed meats
have been linked
to cancer, right?
Right, better make it
meat lover's instead.
Come on, boy.
Lights out by 10.
JAMES: Come on.
What's up, playa playa?
Let's ride.
Holla, home skillet.
How weird was last night?
I had crazy dreams about it.
Was that after or before
your dream about Natalie?
Morning, boys.
Hi, Mr. Miller.
Tell your father I got
those moving boxes ordered.
Will do, thanks.
BRUCE: Think fast.
Later, losers.
- Jerks!
- Jockholds.
So, I'll expect a
detailed proposal from each
of you by Monday.
Don't forget your
proposal should include
a detailed hypothesis,
including an outline
of your methods and materials.
Any questions?
I'll be in the chem
lab until 3:15.
Here you go.
- Um...
- You dropped your pencil.
Oh, yeah.
I didn't steal it or
anything, it just came to me.
It rolled to me.
Okay, well, thanks?
Nash, James Nash.
Thank you, James.
You're welcome, Natalie.
Okay, bye.
It rolled to me?
That was weird.
Did you find her?
We located her car, Sir.
Actually that
was my idea, Sir.
Now why would I
care about her car
if Ms. Palmer and the
device aren't in it?
Actually, that was her idea.
Oh, no no, do
not put this on me.
Oh no no no,
- don't put that on me
- You're the one who said...
- I did not say that!
- Enough!
I want you to go back
out and find her.
She's not just gonna
come strolling...
Well, well, well, you've
got some nerve, haven't you?
Strolling back in here.
What is she doing here, sir?
Well, for starters
I'd like my car back.
That's not happening.
one more lap, come on!
Danny, hold up.
Where you going?
Um, home?
What'd you forget?
Wait, you were
serious about that?
We gotta know
what's out there.
Of course you were
serious about that.
Come on, daylight's burning.
GRANT: I thought we
had an understanding.
If I'm being charged
with something,
I'd like to know what it is.
If not, I'd like to go.
GRANT: You're not
going anywhere until you
tell me where the device is.
And why would I do that?
Because it's mine.
That's debatable.
Your father commissioned
F.R.E.D.I. to save lives,
not destroy them.
It will save lives, American
lives, on the battlefield.
You voided your contract
and all your rights
- to the tech when you decided...
- My lawyers don't seem
- to think so.
- With all the changes that
- you've mandated.
- What concern is
- that of yours?
- If it falls into
the wrong hands.
Tell me where it is!
Lopez managed to restore 78%
of the data from the purge, sir.
And the device?
We're locked in on
its tracking beacon.
So, what exactly
are we looking for?
Everything, clues, signs,
evidence, whatever.
Uh, I'm hungry.
No problemo.
What do you have in there?
Beans, really?
A flashlight?
More candy.
I don't even think I wanna
know what this is for.
Just being prepared.
For what, the
zombie apocalypse?
May I remind you that your house
is two football fields that way?
Yeah, but not for much longer.
I, uh, saw the sign.
So your dad's really
doing it, huh?
JAMES: Put it on
the market yesterday.
So now what?
You're looking for
buried treasure?
Well, uh, let's get to it.
Well, where's the signal?
It's going northeast
across state line.
Huh, that's weird,
there's nothing out
that way, but, oh no.
What do you mean oh no?
It just stopped.
What do you mean
it just stopped?
I mean it just stopped.
I hope you brought
a change of clothes.
DANNY: Listen, man.
We've been searching
for nearly two hours
and we haven't found a thing.
JAMES: We haven't
found a thing yet.
DANNY: Look, maybe it's
just time we call it a day.
Maybe it's time
you sucked it up.
My mom's expecting
me home before dinner,
you know how she is.
Well, we wouldn't wanna
keep your mother waiting.
Yeah, like you'd know.
What's that supposed to mean?
Nothing, dude.
You know what?
How about you come have
dinner at my house tonight.
I can have dinner
at my own house.
Dude, I.
I really gotta go.
Fine, then go.
I can't just leave
you out here alone,
it's gonna get dark soon.
I'll head back when I finish
this stretch of the road.
All right.
Call me if you need me.
I think I got something.
Where's the rest of it?
This is it.
I knew it!
Buster, no!
Go, go.
What do you do?
I found something.
You're never going
to believe this.
I don't know.
That's weird.
You must have a power button.
RANDY: James, I'm home.
Let's go, I'm starving.
Did you find it?
Uh, well, actually sir,
we found the homing beacon.
GRANT: Bring the device
back to the lab, stat.
Well, actually, sir, you see,
the beacon was disconnected
from the device.
Well, why would you do that?
Uh, no, sir, you see,
the beacon was separated
prior to us finding the device.
We suspect that it may
have been compromised.
All right.
Look, I'll have a
chat with Ms. Palmer
and you two clowns stop messing
around and get back here.
Show me.
Oh my god.
Thank god your mother isn't
here to see me eat like this.
To let her know
her number one son
Who's ready for a refill?
Nah, I'm good.
this outta your way?
Oh, no, no, no, not.
Make a move for his fries
you might lose a finger.
Thanks for the tip.
Listen, um, your mother
sent me an email this morning
and she and your
sister were hoping
for a visit from you
over the long weekend.
I know, she called yesterday.
Oh, you spoke to her.
Great, great, so you want
me to book you a ticket?
Can we afford that?
Don't worry about that, okay?
Meeting with the bank,
pretty good I think.
- Did you get the money?
- No.
But they said they would get
back to me a loan for the shop.
Does that mean we don't
have to sell the house?
Do we really need
that big of a house?
Just the two of us?
I was thinking
maybe an apartment.
You know, with a pool,
something like that.
What about Buster?
He's our family.
Also a dog.
He's my dog, he's my friend.
Why can't you figure this out?
You know the rules,
man, no gadgets at dinner.
Have we put any more thought
into your science project?
I was thinking maybe
one of those, you know,
volcanoes where you
pour the stuff in
and then it blows up
and then most likely
I clean it all up.
That's kid stuff, I'm in
high school now, remember?
All right, what's going on?
Are you sure there's not something
you wanna tell me here?
No, it's fine,
it's just Danny.
He's anxious to get a
head start on the weekend.
Oh, big plans?
Oh yeah, you know us.
We're planning to knock over
a couple convenient stores
in a tri-county crime
spree overnight.
Maybe boost a Ferrari.
Cops should have
me home by dawn.
I look forward to that.
WAITRESS: All done here?
Anyone like a piece of pie?
Apple or peach?
Fresh baked today.
Oh, you know what?
Pack one up to go for me,
breakfast of champions.
You want one?
No, thanks.
RANDY: Thank you.
I can assure you
we're going to have
an unmitigated
success with this.
Yes, sir.
I understand that, dad.
So what, oh, yeah,
okay, okay, dad.
Am I in charge here or am I not?
Thank you.
So, just go on an
enjoy your cup of cocoa
and say hi to mom for me, okay?
Thanks, bye.
Coulda sworn.
- Hey, what's up?
- Hey.
Uh, what do you think?
The guys at Harvest
suggested I get
some sort of a business
plan, you know, diversify,
and thought maybe
selling these skateboards
in the shop would bring
in some new customers.
I dunno though.
It's minimalist.
Yeah, simple.
Yeah, that's what
I thought so, too.
I kinda like it, I think.
Anyway, you mind
giving it a test ride?
- Sure thing, thanks.
- Thanks.
Yeah, let me know
what you think.
All right, so listen, I'm
gonna search some flights
for your trip to
Tucson and probably
just turning in early.
Sounds good.
Watch some Netflix
and chill if you wanna.
That doesn't mean what
you think it means, dad.
Yeah, that was weird.
Dude, seriously, a toy?
You're tripping out over a toy?
I don't think it's a toy.
Okay, did you
try to turn it on?
JAMES: There's no switch.
DANNY: Great, a
toy that doesn't work.
I mean, where did
you even find it?
Okay, after you left I
found this old hunting blind
and I don't know,
but it looked like
someone was living in it.
There wasn't anyone
in there but...
There was this
sleeping bag and there
was this tactical
bag and it was in it.
That's pretty dope.
Yeah, you gotta get over here.
BOY: Mom, Luke
put paint in my hair!
WOMAN: Luke, do not
paint your brother!
DANNY: I'll be right over.
Okay, see ya in a bit.
F.R.E.D.I.: Caution,
you are at risk for a fall,
allow me to assist you.
You can talk?
A warning?
About what?
It thought I was gonna fall.
So it's got AI?
I guess so.
This thing has to be
following Asimov's laws.
English, professor?
Robotics 101, dude.
It can't allow
anyone to get hurt,
it has to obey human command
and it has to protect
its own existence.
Let's see if it's serious.
Wait, what?
Well, okay, we need to
put you in danger again.
Maybe we can illicit another
warning, wake him up, I don't...
Oh, okay.
Stand up, stand up.
Follow my lead.
You're gonna die!
Oh, I'm gonna die!
He's gonna die!
- Unless I get saved by...
- Unless someone saves
him for some reason.
This sucks, it
knows we're faking.
What now?
How confident are
you that this thing
is actually trying
to protect you?
JAMES: I know what I saw.
What the heck?
How much longer
are we gonna do this?
Until you decide to cooperate.
Sir, we recovered
91.1% of the data.
What about the other 9.9%?
91.1% would leave you 8.9%
shy of full data recovery.
Uh, so now you
wanna be helpful?
Butt out, Lopez.
Yes, sir.
So now you're
being helpful, hm?
It's simple math.
There's been some
slight data corruption.
What do you mean?
I'm not sure yet.
We won't know until we
attempt to execute a protocol
or a series of
protocols to show how
the prototype's capabilities
have been affected.
So why don't we just
let it do something.
Hey, fly it back here.
Ah, yes, the raven protocol.
Great job, sir.
Do it.
Right away.
All right.
Three, two, one.
What the?
F.R.E.D.I.: Activating
Raven Protocol.
Are you seeing
what I'm seeing?
It's flying.
F.R.E.D.I.: Unable to
activate Raven Protocol.
I will run a self-diagnostic
to assess the problem.
One moment, please.
What is that?
I can't tell if the device
has received my command
or if so it's able
to execute it.
What do we do now?
We wait?
Do you think it's like a bomb?
Do bombs talk?
I don't know, maybe.
Diagnostic complete.
It appears an
electromagnetic pulse
has disabled my
secondary boosters,
interrupting long distance
flight capabilities.
I am unable to
return to home base.
Where's home base?
F.R.E.D.I.: That
location is classified.
What are you?
F.R.E.D.I.: My
technology is proprietary.
What do you do?
F.R.E.D.I.: I am
capable of many functions.
My priority is to
protect human life.
What's your name?
Your badge says F.R.E.D.I..
Let me guess, classified?
F.R.E.D.I.: The correct
pronunciation is F.R.E.D.I..
Hi, F.R.E.D.I., I'm
James, this is Danny.
Are you lost?
F.R.E.D.I.: My directive
is undetermined at this time.
What does that mean?
F.R.E.D.I.: That
information is classified.
You know what, I'm gonna
go on a limb here and say
that this thing is a jerkface.
Okay, don't make it mad.
It could kill you, okay?
One beam, slice
you in half, okay?
That's true.
Slice him.
I found you in the forest.
Do you know how you got there?
F.R.E.D.I.: I was placed
in hiding by my creator.
In hiding?
Who's your creator?
F.R.E.D.I.: Someone
is approaching.
I assess their intentions
to be non-hostile.
F.R.E.D.I., hide.
So what, what,
what about, okay.
Hey, I'm gonna go
ahead and turn it in.
Danny, I didn't
know you were here.
Yeah, just helping out my
home skillet with some homework.
- Homework?
- Mmhmm.
Whatcha studying?
- Uh, ge...
- Robotics.
AI, artificial intelligence,
pretty complicated
stuff, you know?
- Robots.
- Sounds pretty advanced.
Yeah, it's, yeah.
- Future stuff.
- Very futuristic, you know?
All right, Dad, I'll
see you in the morning.
F.R.E.D.I.: James
hides F.R.E.D.I., too.
Is F.R.E.D.I. in danger?
Oh, well, no, not here.
But out there I don't know.
F.R.E.D.I.: F.R.E.D.I.
will remain here in safety.
I think that's a good idea.
Oh, uh, I gotta
go, dude, sorry.
What, you're leaving?
Well, if I'm not
home in 10 my mom
will ground me till summer, so.
I was hoping we could
take F.R.E.D.I. out
for a spin, see what she can do.
F.R.E.D.I. can spin.
She can spin!
Whoa, whoa, whoa,
F.R.E.D.I., give it a rest.
F.R.E.D.I.: F.R.E.D.I.
will rest as instructed.
Entering sleep mode.
This has been a
truly incredible day,
but I need to go, so.
How can you sleep
at a time like this?
You should try it.
Text me if anything happens.
We're never gonna have
this done by Monday.
Night, F.R.E.D.I..
F.R.E.D.I.: Goodnight, James.
Good morning, James.
No way.
F.R.E.D.I.: I noticed
you were having trouble
completing your paper
on climate change.
I took the liberty of
completing it for you.
Oh, well, one second.
F.R.E.D.I., I need you to hide.
F.R.E.D.I.: Okay.
Come in.
What was that?
What was what?
I heard voices.
JAMES: Voices?
Uh, it was probably
just the radio.
Is this not what I wanted
Are you kidding me?
Come on, it's a
complete mess in here.
Would it kill you
to clean your room,
I don't know, every
once in awhile?
Yes, as a matter of
fact, it would kill me.
You know how many
toxic chemicals
are in disinfectant solutions?
Not to mention the trip
hazard over the vacuum cord.
Or the risk of getting
tangled in dirty bed sheets.
Wait, wait, wait,
wait, whatever.
Okay, you fix this.
We got an open house
Sunday afternoon,
we'll never get an offer
with it looking like this.
Fine by me.
Hey, this move's gonna be good
for the both of us, you'll see.
Good for you.
Stay here, I gotta
get ready for school.
F.R.E.D.I.: Okay, James.
I'm detecting a reduced
serotonin level.
Are you feeling okay?
Yeah, fine.
What the?
Did you do this?
F.R.E.D.I.: Affirmative.
F.R.E.D.I. did not
want James to die.
Would it kill you
to clean your room,
I don't know, once in awhile?
Oh, right, but, that's
just a figure of speech,
I wouldn't of really.
Nevermind, thanks, F.R.E.D.I..
F.R.E.D.I.: You're
welcome, James.
I wanna keep you safe, so
don't forget the ground rules.
Remember, nobody
can see or hear you.
F.R.E.D.I.: Observing
your natural habitat
will increase my
abilities to assist you
in maintaining a
safe environment.
Just as long as
you do your observing
without being seen.
Can see your
attention torn away
F.R.E.D.I.: Incoming
threat detected.
What's going on?
Oh, poor baby's all alone.
Let's get him.
Anti-attack mode engaged.
Level two defense commencing.
Increasing speed, use of
safety gear is advised.
It's a little
late for that now.
How is he doing that?
Dude, go faster.
He's getting away.
You better not post this.
What, come on, this
is an exciting day.
Just say something.
First day in the new ride.
Woohoo, freedom!
F.R.E.D.I.: Prepare for olly.
You know how to olly?
MALLORY: Oh my god, isn't
that guy in our science class?
F.R.E.D.I.: Laser on.
Oh crap!
Threat eliminated.
That was insane.
GIRL: Hey, is that that guy?
GIRL: The one
in Mallory's video?
- Yeah, he did a crazy olly.
- Pound it, bro.
GUY: Man, that jump was sick.
Dude, everyone's
talking about you.
JAMES: Oh really?
I hadn't noticed.
They're saying you jumped
15 feet over a bench
and nearly got Bruce arrested.
Technically Bruce nearly
got himself arrested
with a little help
from F.R.E.D.I..
Wait, did F.R.E.D.I.
go after Bruce?
F.R.E.D.I.: It was
a defensive maneuver.
F.R.E.D.I., shh.
You brought that
thing to school?
I just, yeah, it's fine.
It's a half-day.
F.R.E.D.I.: Each solar
day is exactly 24 hours.
James, this is bad, okay?
Do you not get that?
This is some sort
of defense bot.
People are gonna
come looking for it.
JAMES: I'm not
gonna let them find her
and I'm not giving her back.
Did you bump your head doing
that stupid stunt this morning?
I'm just curious.
I've never felt better.
This is the best day of my life
and I don't intend
on wasting it.
Hey, sweet move, bro.
Hey, you wanna come
with me after school
to see what F.R.E.D.I. can do?
I can't.
Me and the science class are
raising money for stem camp.
So I'm tutoring students after
class to help contribute.
And I actually wanted
to talk to you about
who exactly I'm tutoring.
JAMES: Yeah, who is it?
It's, it's, it's a girl.
Well, well, well,
nice going, brother.
Uh, who is she?
Do I know her?
MALLORY: Hey, guys.
See you this afternoon, Danny.
DANNY: See y'all.
My Natalie?
It's not what you think, dude.
Nice, we gotta go.
DANNY: Really?
Look, excuse the interruption,
but I've been
running some tests on
the virtual model of
F.R.E.D.I. and um...
You've been doing what?
Running some tests
on the virtual model...
Well that sounds like
a massive waste of time
and resources, isn't it?
With all due respect,
I think you're gonna
wanna take a look at this.
- Am I?
- Yes.
See, right here.
So, back in phase one of
development we created
this um, this virtual
model that we can do
- some, you know,
- Yes.
Hypothetic goal
testing without any
- real work consequences.
- Oh.
Well, why in the
real world would
I even care about any of this?
It is the question, isn't it?
- Yes, that is
- Right.
A good question and I
have your answer right here.
See, this is the model
for the hydrogen core
that the F.R.E.D.I.
prototype uses
for the fuel cell along
with the internal shielding
system that we in place
for a stabilizing.
Well, it appears that
the shielding is failing.
All right, without all
the scientific gibberish,
just tell me what you
actually mean in English.
Well, um, see, the
lower the numbers go,
the faster it drops.
We call it the Omega Error.
Ooh, the Omega Error.
Oh, I do like the sound of that.
Has a certain ring
to it, doesn't it?
Omega Error.
What happens when it
goes all the way to zero?
Oh no, everything within
400 meters would incinerate.
Sounds wonderful.
- Uh huh, wonderful?
- Yes.
- Well, it would be...
- Carry on.
F.R.E.D.I.: Why
are we in the forest?
I wanted to take
you out for a spin.
No, no, no, you
can stop spinning.
Just wanted to see
what else you could do.
F.R.E.D.I.: I
am programmed to do
over 10,000 different tasks.
Show me.
Three, two, one!
Ready, I'm gonna get ya.
F.R.E.D.I.: This
won't sting a bit.
All right, F.R.E.D.I.,
how high can you go?
That was amazing.
Caution, Omega Error.
Power cell depletion,
possible source meltdown.
What is Omega Error?
Are you hurt?
F.R.E.D.I.'s power cell
capacity is depleted by half.
Someone is approaching.
I will scan the area.
Scan complete.
I detect two individuals
with hostile intentions.
Their bioscans are
logged in my database.
Let's go.
Williams, get over here.
What do ya got?
What is this?
BRODY: I don't know,
looks like some fort.
we miss this last time?
F.R.E.D.I.: I detect an
increase in your heart rate
consistent with extreme stress.
Sir, is that you?
Sir, I can't hear you,
you're breaking up.
It sounds like you
want to release her.
Oh, right away.
WILLIAMS: What's up?
Grant wants to release Palmer.
We need to go.
F.R.E.D.I.: Okay.
Who are those people?
F.R.E.D.I.: F.R.E.D.I.
previously encountered
them during my field trials.
Is that where you came from?
And don't tell me
it's classified.
F.R.E.D.I.: I won't
tell you it's classified.
So tell me.
F.R.E.D.I.: I can't.
Fine, I'll look it up myself.
F.R.E.D.I.: We are
likely under surveillance.
Searches related to
F.R.E.D.I. may be traced
to your IP address.
I recommend using a public
access point for research.
BRODY: So tell me why we
can't just leave her here again?
WILLIAMS: The Constitution.
- Right.
- Enough.
I've decided.
We're going to let her go.
She's not giving
us anything anyway.
BRODY: Yeah, so
just let her go again.
GRANT: Exactly.
And then I want you to
trace her every move.
because it won't be long
before she heads
straight to the gadget.
GRANT: That's
what I'm counting on.
Yeah, you know,
that's super helpful.
I totally get it now.
Yeah, uh, there's a ton
of little tricks like that.
Here, see these phylum
It looks really overwhelming
when you see them all at once,
but if you break them
down first by vertebrae
and nonvertebrae and
then by the environments
in which they reside it's
easier to break them down
and attack it that way.
- So let's start...
- Can I ask you a question?
Yeah, of course.
Isn't that why I'm getting
paid the big bucks?
Um, what's the deal
with your friend James?
I am, I don't know.
What do you mean?
You know, like is he single,
does he have a girlfriend?
I was just asking.
You know, for a friend.
- So.
- Let's uh,
let's get back to this.
So a lot of these
equations look, uh.
What was that?
Uh, just some kid.
Let's get back to
these classifications.
Future robotics engineered
design innovation.
F.R.E.D.I., you're a star.
F.R.E.D.I. is not a star.
A star is a luminous
collection of hydrogen
and helium held together
by its own gravity.
Shh, you gotta keep quiet.
We're in the library.
F.R.E.D.I.: Hi, there.
What's your name?
F.R.E.D.I.: My
name is F.R.E.D.I..
BOY: Bye, robot.
You know, this is a
complete waste of time.
I been sitting
here for like hours
and now my butt is numb.
I mean, it's not like
Palmer's gonna waltz
through her front door
in broad daylight.
Come on!
Well, if you hadn't lost her,
you wouldn't be
on stakeout duty.
Well if she wasn't
driving like a maniac
I wouldn't have lost her.
Be patient.
Wow, be patient, yeah, okay.
I'll show you how to be patient.
Where are you?
Oh, you mustn't reshelve
the books yourself,
you'll muddle the system.
Let me do it.
Young man, this is a
library, not a racetrack.
Yes, ma'am, sorry about that.
How'd you do that?
F.R.E.D.I. is equipped
with a cloaking device
to evade detection
in hostile circumstances.
Caution, Omega Error.
Current power 45%.
Hey, I found a burst of
F.R.E.D.I.-related searches
originating from an IP
address at the public library.
I'm headed over there now.
Yeah, no, no, you're
getting it, you're getting it.
Just keep doing,
keep doing that.
Real simplified.
I need to talk
to you, like now.
Can you not wait
until we're done?
Come on.
No, it's okay, we
could wrap up things now.
And I could give you guys
a ride home in my
car if you'd like.
You have a car?
So, where am I
taking you guys?
Uh, Arachnacorp, it's
by the tech complex.
Off the freeway and
by the pause exit.
So a science lab?
Uh, it's for a
science project.
Whole life's a
science project.
Don't do that.
I have a delivery
for a Mr. Brody.
Um, I'm Mr. Brody.
WOMAN: Tazikis.
- Yeah.
- Tazikis?
That's my favorite.
I mean, I don't have any
cash on me at the moment
so I don't know how
I'm gonna pay you.
It's been taken care of.
It must be the
guys at the station.
I love those guys.
Last Saturday
I crashed a car
To the rear end of
your mode of contention
So if I stay at home tonight
It's just because
I can't get up
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
Who's real now,
who's breaking down
I feel so sleek,
I feel contagious
I'm down here and
you're up there
And you got your
hands in a bad affair
Like a bad affair
is a bad affair
You've got bigger
problems right now
And I can't hear
you crying out loud
What's your business
here today, kids?
Um, I'm just dropping off...
Morning, we're
just headed over
to scout out the
tech park sidewalks
for some sweet spots to ride.
- I don't think so.
- Why?
Skateboarding is not a crime.
It's a free country.
But this is a secured area.
Since when?
It's just a business park.
What's going on?
I want you kids to
turn this car around
and get out of here now.
Okay, yeah, we don't
want any trouble.
Wait a second.
Yeah, you, Tony Hawk.
What's in the bag?
Uh, it's just uh,
it's just school stuff.
I need to see it.
We don't want
any trouble, okay?
Can we just go?
Open the bag.
I'm gonna unzip the bag.
Doing that now.
Here I go.
All righty, then, on your way.
And I don't wanna see
any of you here again.
Got it?
You can count on that.
Why did you lie to that guy?
What's going on?
Will somebody tell
me what's going on?
Okay, James?
Look, I know this is
your thing or whatever.
What are we gonna do, man?
Okay, listen, I
wasn't going to the lab
for a science project.
I just, I think.
I think I found
something really amazing
and I need to talk to a
certain person about it.
Are you guys in trouble,
is it something dangerous?
Well, not exactly.
- Whoa.
I have a spare in the trunk.
Yeah, got a spare back
here but no tire iron.
Or a jack.
My dad was just
teaching me how
to fix a flat tire and I guess
I just didn't put any
of it back in there.
How ironic.
And I can't call
them because I'm only
supposed to be driving to
and from school and practice.
Don't look at me.
My mom will literally kill me
if she finds out I'm out here.
What about Mallory,
can we call her?
She's at dance class.
Besides, she only has
her learner's permit.
But I guess I could call Bruce.
- No.
- No, no.
My dad's at his shop.
He's not far, he can
bring us tools over.
All right, let's
get this tire.
Hey, Dad.
I'm with Danny and a friend.
We need your help fixing
a tire, call me back.
So now I'm a friend?
I hope so.
Hey, Dad.
Where are you and who's
car are you riding in?
It's a long story,
I can explain.
F.R.E.D.I.: Tire trouble?
Maybe I can help.
What the heck is that?
Who was that,
who was screaming?
Uh nevermind, Dad, Auto
Club is here, gotta go.
No, no, James,
don't you hang up on...
I guess the cat's
outta the bag now.
Or robots outta the bag.
Is that a bad, okay.
Is this your robot?
Um yeah, I guess so.
Her name's F.R.E.D.I..
Who knows about this thing?
No one.
Just the three of us.
And Dr. Palmer, so
you can't tell anybody.
Excuse me for a second.
Who's Dr. Palmer?
F.R.E.D.I.: Dr.
Palmer is my creator.
I received a warning
from her advising
us to leave Arachnacorp.
What warning?
Is this thing dangerous?
F.R.E.D.I.: F.R.E.D.I.
is not dangerous.
My directive is to help people.
I can help you.
Me, oh, you wanna help me?
Do your thing, F.R.E.D.I..
F.R.E.D.I.: The tire
appears to be flat.
Do you have a spare
tire in the vehicle?
It's talking to me.
So talk back.
Um, I have a spare
but I don't seem
to have a jack or a tire iron.
F.R.E.D.I.: Not a problem.
DANNY: Are you
guys seeing this?
- No, no, no.
- Stop, what are you doing?
What's the big deal?
Okay, this is amazing.
You guys said it
wasn't dangerous.
I said F.R.E.D.I.'s
not dangerous.
I don't know about the people
who are looking for her.
So you are in trouble.
We are in trouble.
Excuse me?
Well, actually, now you
know as much as we do.
Oh no, nope, nope,
nope, I'm taking you two
and this tin can home now.
I'm afraid it's a
little too late for that.
Oh, go ahead.
No, I'm good, I need something
a little higher octane.
Bad day?
I have been on a wild
goose chase from one
end of this town to the other.
Yeah, you wouldn't
believe what we've seen
at the front gate today.
Wrong deliveries, lost
interns, nosy teenagers.
Nosy teenagers out here?
What'd they want?
F.R.E.D.I.: Repair complete.
The manufacturer suggests
limiting your speed
to 50 miles per hour.
F.R.E.D.I.: You're
welcome, Natalie.
She's awesome, isn't she?
Caution, Omega Error.
Power cell at 30%.
Shield at eminent risk.
What's happening?
I don't know, it's
the second time today.
Something's wrong.
That's why I need to
find this Dr. Palmer.
Like now.
GRANT: I want you to
see if Palmer's inside.
Dr. Palmer?
I know you're here.
Come on.
Come on out.
Dr. Palmer?
Dr. Palmer, come on!
It's Brody.
It's your friend.
Is she there or
isn't she there?
WILLIAMS: Gotcha, skater boy.
You know why I want an
answer to the question?
Because I want to know how
angry I should be with you...
GRANT: Hold up.
I think you should see this.
I've got a short list
of possible locations.
Then we'll impart a new one.
- Awesome, sir.
- How short?
Um, three
residential addresses.
How positive are
you about this?
Fairly positive.
Fairly positive doesn't
sound good enough.
Very positive, sir.
Actually, I'm 100% sure.
Very good.
Listen, your partner
here, Williams,
has got three addresses
and she's going
to text you them
to you right away,
I want you to meet us there
and don't mess this up.
Yes, sir, I'm on my way now.
Let's go in.
Get outta my way.
You know what I don't get?
How did Palmer
know where we were?
Or that we were in danger?
F.R.E.D.I., what
can you tell us about
the messages from Dr. Palmer?
F.R.E.D.I.: Each
message was received
using a covert messaging
system not disclosed
in my manualized
program settings.
So she can talk to you?
Like in secret?
F.R.E.D.I.: I
can receive messages
from Dr. Palmer within
a 10 mile radius
using the covert
communication system.
So she's close by.
Okay, but if that's the case,
then why haven't we gotten
another message from her?
I hope she's okay.
So what do we do now?
She's good to go on the lease,
just have her sign right there.
Hey, Dad.
RANDY: Four calls, five
texts, three voicemails.
I know, I'm sorry.
RANDY: You wanna tell
me what's going on here?
It's a little hard
to know where to start.
Why don't put this, go
ahead in the break room.
Not so fast.
Who are you?
Uh, I'm Natalie.
Natalie, now there's a
name I've heard before.
You've heard my name?
Is that you I heard screaming?
Sure hope it wasn't you.
No, no, no, no, no,
no sir, it wasn't.
Yeah, yeah, that was me.
I was just, I was surprised,
everything was fine.
I mean everything is
fine, it's all good,
- nothing weird here...
- Kay, that'll do.
It was nice to meet you.
Let's talk.
Me and Danny were
out in the woods,
we were looking for something
we saw the night before.
I found this little
hunting blind and in it was
this sleeping bag and
F.R.E.D.I. in it so I took it.
Think it's not dangerous.
And there's this
scientist, Dr. Palmer,
she has these people
looking for her
because I was out,
think they were gonna
take her and use her for evil.
Hey, Williams, I'm
sending you an update.
It's at 16%, that is not good.
16%, okay?
Hi, mom.
Wait, what?
Some officials came to
my house asking for me.
Driving, um, and
her tire went out flat
and that's what you heard.
Wow, I can't believe you've
been doing all this alone.
Why didn't you just let me know?
I didn't wanna bother you.
Didn't wanna bother me?
You know, with the house
and the shop and all.
Look, I, James, I know
things have been tough
and I've been a little
distracted lately,
but I want you to feel like that
you can come to
me with anything.
Even a bazillion-dollar
talking flying robot?
Yes, even a bazillion-dollar
talking flying robot.
There's nothing in my life
that's more important
than you, all right?
So do you wanna meet her?
Look, I really, I don't
know about this, okay?
I just think that...
I know you're scared.
It's gonna be okay.
F.R.E.D.I., this
is my dad, Randy.
F.R.E.D.I.: Hello,
Randy, nice to meet you.
Incoming call.
From who?
F.R.E.D.I.: Dr. Andi Palmer.
Dr. Palmer?
Hello, James.
You must have so many
questions, as I do for you,
but the time is short
and the stakes are high
so let's get right to it.
I got here as soon as I could.
Well, this car, I saw
it on the security footage
when I was viewing the
cameras from the lab.
Congratulate each other later.
You, cover the rear just in
case somebody tries to get away.
Come on, let's go.
I'll do all the talking.
Are you sure this
is going to work?
I'm sure of it, you'll
just have to trust me.
Dr. Palmer, I need
you to guarantee
that these kids
are gonna be safe.
I'm gonna do everything I can.
F.R.E.D.I.'s also
here to keep you safe.
She excels in risk management
in dire circumstances.
So ask for her help
whenever you need it.
Okay, everybody know the plan?
F.R.E.D.I.: Three
hostiles are approaching.
One in the back and two
heading for the front door.
Stay here.
Looks like one really
angry guy in a suit
and one gal who
apparently hates her job.
That's Grant and
one of his lackeys.
They're here for F.R.E.D.I..
It's game time.
Randy Nash, please.
Randy Nash?
Yes, Cat, you can go ahead
and take your lunch, thank you.
Welcome to Phat Tire,
how can I help you?
We'd like to speak
to your son, James.
James, what about?
We believe that
he is in possession
of a highly dangerous machine.
I'm sorry, who are you?
It's a matter of
national security.
Homeland Security.
Okay, I'd like to
see some ID please.
Oh, weapons manufacturing.
It's highly classified work.
So, what makes
you think that James
is in possession of this, what?
How on Earth are
we supposed to get
out of here without being seen?
You're worried
about getting busted?
You'll be grounded
till you're 50.
Look, I don't care
about that anymore, okay?
I just wanna do what's right.
Okay, so, what's the plan?
F.R.E.D.I.: Preparing
to send radio message.
Voice replication active.
What's up?
F.R.E.D.I.: Those
kids just took off.
They're running
north, go catch 'em.
Come on, hustle!
Nice job, F.R.E.D.I..
F.R.E.D.I.: Thanks, James.
All right, let's go.
F.R.E.D.I.: Our mission
may prove dangerous.
First, safety precautions.
Emergency power down.
Oh no, not again.
Okay, there's no
time for that, go now.
This photo was taken
outside our facility today.
Do you have any idea of
your son's whereabouts, sir?
Or did he happen to
perhaps mention a Dr. Palmer?
Hmm, no, couldn't tell ya.
She's a highly
dangerous individual.
Yeah, well, like I said, I
don't know anything about her
and I'm sure James
doesn't either.
We would really like to speak
with your son now, Mr. Nash.
Well, let me
get this straight.
You come in my shop on a
hunch and you wanna talk
to my son who's a minor about
some missing war machine?
Come on.
Your lack of cooperation
could be considered treason.
Don't threaten me.
As far as I can tell the
only thing you can prove
he's guilty of is
riding in a car.
What's going on?
what are you doing?
Did you spot them?
What do you mean?
You said they took
off going north.
Which way is north again?
What, that wasn't me.
I didn't say anything.
Not going anywhere.
Get out of my way.
I'm not moving.
Get out of my way.
- Seriously?
Get out.
Let's go.
What are you waiting for?
Let's go.
Wait for me!
Hey Brody, send me an update?
BRODY: Can't talk,
we're on bicycles.
You're on bicycles?
Why are you on bicycles?
You know what, forget it,
just the numbers are going
down, you got, hello?
The probability of
us being captures is 78.6%.
Danger, F.R.E.D.I.'s power
is rapidly depleting.
Protection Protocol's offline.
Nice timing.
We need to split up.
Time to end this.
You, sir, step away.
Homeland security.
He's just a kid,
he's just a kid!
What are you doing,
he's getting away.
Move after him.
Get out.
- No.
- What?
I'm out!
I didn't sign up for this.
I quit.
What do you mean, you quit?
You can't quit.
You crossed the line.
You don't just
walk away from me.
You're fired!
You know what, I
can do this alone.
You, what's your name?
Brody, sir.
Come on, Brody.
Let's go get this kid.
Get out of our way,
fat guy on a bike.
Dr. Palmer?
You made it.
Quickly, we don't
have a lot of time.
They're right behind us.
I need somebody
to block the door.
Just open the backpack.
I got it, I got it, I got it.
I'm gonna need
your assistance.
Does that look right to you?
I need you to double
check those numbers, okay?
I think they're inside.
Door is locked.
All right, big man, I
want you to open her.
Yes, sir.
I'm going around the side.
It's going down.
It's going down.
What are we gonna do?
Follow the instructions
while I enter the code.
Um, guys?
I need another 30 seconds.
It's at 2%.
Do something, come on!
Come on, come on,
come on, come on.
We need to hurry.
BRODY: Palmer, we
know you're inside.
He's coming!
It's at 1%.
We're almost there.
Stop, stop, stop,
stop, stop, stop, stop.
It stopped.
It stopped.
It stopped.
You sure about this?
I'm ready.
Get over here!
Give it back.
It's not here.
It's not here!
How many times have I
told you that I never lose?
Game's over, dark.
I'll never give
F.R.E.D.I. to you.
Oh, yes you will.
Come on.
Hand it over.
Come on.
We coulda been
somebody together,
we coulda been a unit,
we coulda been a team.
Just you and me.
My beautiful little,
beautiful little creation.
F.R.E.D.I.: Initiating
self destruct sequence.
Wait a minute.
You didn't switch
this thing off?
Here, we're all gonna die.
No, we won't.
Because some of us are programmed
for protection, not war.
F.R.E.D.I.: Goodbye, James.
Oh my gosh.
You destroyed my baby!
You and I both know
that F.R.E.D.I.'s
core was compromised.
This is nothing but
a failed experiment.
You're a failed experiment.
I'm gonna destroy you.
Hey, boss?
We gotta go.
Shut up!
Don't tell me what to do.
Let's get going.
I'm gonna destroy you.
I thought you
just deactivated it.
I'm sorry, James.
It was too risky.
Why would you do that?
We had a deal.
It was the only way, trust me.
- She's gone, dad.
- It's okay.
- She's gone.
- It's okay.
- Hi, James.
- Hey.
Where did you find an
interest in robots?
It's a hobby I
picked up recently.
He's obsessed.
It's kind of cute actually.
Well, Mr. Nash, I have
to say I'm quite impressed.
Thank you.
- Whoa!
- My man.
NATALIE: Okay, I gotta go.
I'll see you later tonight.
All right, see
you later, Natalie.
F.R.E.D.I.: Hello, James.
But how?
F.R.E.D.I.: Dr. Palmer
held onto a prototype
of my original design.
She downloaded my
memory at the chapel.
This is crazy.
F.R.E.D.I.: I'm
functioning at 100%.
That's amazing.
Why wouldn't she
tell me or my dad?
F.R.E.D.I.: She thought
it was too dangerous
to reveal my existence.
So why are you here?
F.R.E.D.I.: Dr.
Palmer is in trouble.
She needs our help.
When I was just a kid
I built a rocket ship
Pretend I was flying
high to the moon
Hanging with the stars
Stowing down Mars
Riding out a storm in
the middle of Neptune
I was Earth-bound,
feet on the ground
But when you're near
me I'm up in the clouds
You're like a slingshot
outta the dark
You crash into my heart
and I don't wanna come down
'Cause when I'm with
you, I'm up in galaxies
You got me weak, got
me weak in the knees
Just thinking I don't
ever wanna be free
From the pull
of your gravity
Your centrifugal force,
setting my course
Got me dancing, oh, oh
Saturn's rings, feel
the heat falling
Into your space in time
'Cause when I'm with
you I'm up in galaxies
Make me feel like,
you make me feel like
I'm an astronaut
Oh, I'm an astronaut
The magic in your touch
Cosmic kinda love
You take me to
another dimension
You're pulling me
in, tracing your skin
You're my little
perfect constellation
I was Earth-bound,
feet on the ground
But when you're near
me I'm up in the clouds
Like a slingshot
outta the dark
You crash into my heart,
I don't wanna come down
'Cause when I'm with
you I'm up in galaxies
Got me weak, got me
weak in the knees
Thinking I don't
ever wanna be free
From the pull
of your gravity
Your centrifugal force,
setting the course
Got me dancing, oh,
oh, Saturn's rings
Feel the heat falling
into your space and time
'Cause when I'm with
you I'm up in galaxies
You make me feel like,
you make me feel like
I'm an astronaut
Oh, oh, oh I'm an astronaut
