|Red vs. Blue Episode|
|Airdate||June 16, 2008|
Chapter 4 of Red vs. Blue: Reconstruction aired on June 16, 2008 as the 114th episode overall.
Washington and Caboose, on the latter's advice, arrive at a small outpost in search of Church, who they discover has been the base's sole inhabitant for 14 months. At first appearing furiously hostile, trying and failing repeatedly to shoot Caboose with the sniper rifle, he later allows Washington and Caboose to enter the base and have a conversation with him after they point out they were coming in either way. Washington outlines the mission they are on, but Church is initially reluctant, until he is told Tex's ship crash-landed at Outpost 17-B. Upon hearing this, he agrees to go with them and the three of them depart. From a nearby ledge, the Meta is watching them, and opens a device which lets it alter the conversation Washington had with Command, skewing it and sending it to Sarge in Blood Gulch, tricking him into moving out so he can attack Washington and the Blues. After finishing transmitting to Sarge, the Meta notices movement nearby, which turns out to be South Dakota and Delta, who are also pursuing Washington. Unnoticed, the Meta drops to the ground and sneaks up behind them.
Director: Dear Chairman.
Fade in to a remote base of some sort, with Washington and Caboose approaching the structure
Director: Rest assured we have the situation under control. While the Meta is proving to be an elusive enemy, our Recovery agent is already closing in on it. I expect this incident will reach a conclusion soon, and I will be able to return to my research. Hopefully, without further interruption.
Washington: And you're sure this is where we can find this guy?
Caboose: I think so. We all found out our new orders at the same time; he tried to hide his from me so I would not know where he was.
Washington: Really. I can't imagine why.
Caboose: I said it was like a game of hide and seek, and he said that that was right; he was going to hide from me. And the only way he could win, is if he dies without ever seeing me again.
Washington: And he knows about Freelancer as well.
Caboose: Oh, yeah, he knows the most. He knows uh, all about your A.I. game. He dated Tex!
Washington: Agent Texas? Um, how could a person-
A sniper shot rings out between them
Washington: Fuck! Sniper! Get down!
Voice: Okay, that was your one warning shot! The next one's goin' right between your eyes!
Washington: Private Caboose! Get down!
Caboose: Wait a minute-
Voice: Alright! I warned ya! Siyonara, biatch!
Another sniper shot misses Caboose
Voice: Aw come on, what the fuck!?
Caboose: I know that voice! Church! Church! It's me! Your all time best friend!
Church: Caboose? Caboose is that you?
Caboose: Yes! Church, it's me!
Church starts firing at Caboose a lot, and missing, a lot
Caboose: I have missed you so much! It has been so long! Did you miss me!?
Church: Fuck! I missed him!
Caboose: I knew you did!
Church: Go away!
Washington: This is your friend?
The shooting resumes
Washington: And he's shooting at you.
Caboose: Well, at me and stuff around me. Yeah, it is kind of like our thing. So he acts like he doesn't like me, but he really does. Oh and he might bring up something about me killing him, but that's only the truth. Uh it's a joke. *inhale* You could play along if you want!
Washington: Wait, that doesn't make any sense. You did what? You- you killed him?
Church: Hey, scram, seriously! Get the fuck outta here.
Caboose: Hey Church! This is Agent Washington! He needs to speak to you.
Church: Agent Wa- You brought a Freelancer here? What's wrong with you?
Washington: Open this gate.
Church: Uh, no can do bud. See this is a secure facility: nobody in, nobody out. Sorry, I guess you'll have to come back, never.
Washington: Oh no, then I guess we'll have to just walk through the huge hole in your secure wall.
(camera aims at the huge hole in the wall)
Church: Fine, I'll open the fucking gate.
Cut to the inside of the base, which looks all dilapidated and stuff
Church: Okay well, sorry the place is so messy. I would have cleaned up if I'd known you guys were coming. But hey, no-one called ahead.
Washington: How long have you been here?
Church: How long? Um... What day is today?
Washington: Today is Tuesday.
Church: I've been here fourteen months.
Washington: What? Over a year, by yourself? Alone?
Church: Yeah, it's been um... it's been great, I mean just, just it's been great. Really great.
The all too familiar radio sounds
Command: This is Command calling Recovery One, come in Recovery One.
Washington: You are really an odd group of people. Hold on. This is Agent Washington. I found some blue team members that have extensive experience with Omega.
Church: Did he just say Omega?
Caboose: Yeah. And some other words too.
Command: Excellent Agent Washington, please stand by for orders.
The camera pans behind someone invisible who then darts off before Caboose looks where he was
Command: Now that you have reassembled the blues, you should head to Outpost 17-B. See what clues your team can gather there based on what they know.
Washington: Roger that.
Command: They want you to stop the Meta at all costs. This is a Level One directive. Good luck Wash. Recovery Command out.
Washington: Recovery One out. Come on, let's move out.
Church: Move out? Hey at what point in this conversation did you think that we were buddies or somethin'? I'm not goin' with you.
Caboose: Yes! You are not in our buddy club!
Church: Shut up Caboose, and what did I tell you about that armor, when we had to pick new suits?
Caboose: You told me to upgrade.
Church: That's not an upgrade! This is Mark Six armor, that's Mark Five. This is an upgrade.
Caboose: In a Top Ten list, five is better than six.
Church: We're not a top ten list!
Washington: How do you ever get anything done if all you ever do is argue with each other?
Church: We don't, that's part of our charm. Quit fuckin' it up!
Washington: Look, I know you guys are all wrapped up in your little "red vs blue" battles-
Caboose: Blue vs red battles. No-one says red vs blue, it sounds stupid when you say it backwards.
Washington: But this is important. Actual military operations. Not your fake simulation stuff. Something is hunting our top agents, and I need all the help I can get to stop it.
Church: Stop it? If it's killing Freelancers I want to start a fan club for it, build it a website.
Washington: And now that the ship from your canyon is crashed, we think it's more poweful than ever. It gains new abilities every time it kills-
Church: Wait wait wait, whoa- you found Tex's ship?
Washington: We believe so.
Washington: Come with me, and I'll show you.
Church: Okay, I'm in.
Caboose: Yes, this will be the greatest road trip ever!
Church: If you say anything positive, I will fucking kill all three of us right now.
Caboose: Okay. I will be very depressed about how awesome this will be.
The Meta decloaks on the base and starts meddling with a recording he made of Washington's conversation with Command to create new audio, then sounds the radio with it
Command: This is Command calling Red Base, come in Red Base.
Sarge: This is Blood Gulch Outpost Number One.
Command: Agent Washington has reassembled the Blues.
Sarge: I knew it! I knew he was a Blue!
Command: Gather your team, we want you to stop Agent Washington at all costs. This is a level one directive. Good luck Red Base.
Sarge: Hey, one sec. Any word on that soldier poison I ordered?
Command: No. Good luck Red Base.
Sarge: What about the robot nuts?
Command: No. Good luck Red Base. Command out.
Sarge: Well you don't have to get so te- ...
Meta closes the connection
Sarge: Hello? Hello, can you hear me? ...How 'bout now? This thing gets terrible reception. Only have one bar. ...Hello? Can you hear me now?
Meta sees someone in purple armor off to the side. South steps out from behind a broken wall with Delta activated
Delta: I still believe this course of action is dangerous. If we are following Agent Washington, logic would dictate that others could be as well.
Meta hops down the wall and sneaks towards them.
