    Summary

    Looking back, it had all started with the launch of Domino.

    There hadn’t been much choice at the time but to keep to the launch schedule. It had already been previewed at the stockholder meeting at the end of the last quarter, and he really hadn’t thought it would go as badly as it did.

    Chalk that up to Wickham, among other things.

    Summary

    For all of Bash’s teasing, he knows. He knows in the way she steals into his thoughts; in how she lingers in the notes of a song that bursts out of him with too much joy; in the way she frames the edges of home when Bash asks him about Avonlea; in the way her letter falls open from well-worn creases when it’s not tucked safely away in his pack.

    He knows.

    But it’s one thing to know it, even if only his most wistful thoughts. It’s another thing entirely to admit it to Bash, and to give him another reason to rush him home. Avonlea is already calling to him all the time, and it’s hard to know how much is heartache and how much is homesickness. He’s taken Marilla’s words to heart and wants Avonlea to be a choice if – when – he comes back.

    (Through it all his heart whispers come home someday and he gets no rest at all.)

    So slowly, his protests to Bash’s sharp eye weaken, and sometimes, when he’s not careful, he dreams about treasure hidden away in Avonlea.

    Summary

    The honorable thing to do in that moment would have been to let go and let the beautiful girl abscond into the night with the last box of Cocoa Puffs. But Raleigh really wanted the Cocoa Puffs, and Yancy be damned, he wouldn't be eating another bite of fucking pasta.

    Summary

    An earlier version of the script would have Mako and Raleigh speaking two different languages for the majority of the film. After connecting as pilots, they would slowly begin to understand one another, and before the end would hear each other speaking in their own respective languages.
    -
    “Little Mako screams and screams and screams, and Raleigh knows she never speaks again.”
