Tommy: [To Maria.] You okay?
Maria: Yeah, yeah. I'm fine. I'm fine.
[Both Maria and Tommy look over at Joel and Ellie.]
Ellie: [Breathlessly] Joel. Oh man... they were coming in from every direction. Then Maria was like, "We gotta run!"
Joel: Okay. Listen-
Ellie: [Interjecting.] And so we dove over these tables and this huge guy blasts in with his shotgun.
Joel: Slow down, slow down. Listen--
Ellie: [Talking over Joel.] And then--
Joel: [Grabs Ellie's shoulders.] Hey, hey, are you hurt?
Ellie: [Relieved.] No.
[The camera cuts back to Tommy and Maria]
Tommy: Goddammit. [To Maria.] I need to talk to you.
[Cut to outside. Maria and Tommy are talking. Joel listens nearby, rested on a box.]
Maria: Absolutely not. You tell him to go find somebody else.
Tommy: Maria, I can't have this hanging over my head.
Maria: Do you have any idea how many men we lost here today?
Ellie: [Walks beside Joel.] Hey--what's that all about? [Waits for response.] Does it have anything to do with me?
Joel: We'll talk about it later.
Ellie: [Irritated] Did he tell you where the lab is?
Joel: [Insistent] We'll talk about it later.
Ellie: Later... [Scoffs.] Right.
[Ellie storms off.]
Joel: Ell-- [Refrains.]
Maria: [Off-screen.] It takes one. One fuck-up. [On-screen.] One fuck up and I turn into those widows! Okay?
Tommy: I have to do this. I don't know what else to say.
Maria: [Scoffs.] Fine.
Tommy: Maria. [Maria walks to Joel.] Maria!
Joel: [To himself.] Here we go. [Stands.]
Maria: You. If anything. Anything at all happens to him. It's on you.
[Joel nods, unable to look at her. Maria walks away.]
Tommy: She's thankful, you know
Joel: Yeah. I know.
Tommy: I'll take that girl of yours to the Fireflies. You don't have to worry about it.
Joel: It's best this way.
Tommy: Maybe some real good will come of this.
Joel: [Pause.] I need to talk to Ellie.
[Tommy nods and walks off. Joel turns the other way, wiping his eye.]
Tommy: [Through walkie-talkie.] Say again, I didn't hear you. Joel!
Joel: What--what is it?
Tommy: That girl of yours. She took one of horses and rode of.
Joel: Damn it. Which way?
Tommy: Come on.
