Dr. Martin Brenner : Six.
Joyce Byers : What?
Dr. Martin Brenner : Six. Six people have been taken this week. This thing that took your son... We don't really understand it. But its behavior is predictable. Like all animals, it eats. It will take more sons. More daughters. I want to save them. I want to save your son. But I can't do that. Not without your help.
Joyce Byers : Stop. I know who you are. I know what you've done. You took my boy away from me! You left him in that place to die! You faked his death! We had a funeral. We buried him. And now you're asking for my help? Go to hell.
Jonathan Byers : [Jonathan enters the waiting room and nods to Mike] Yeah.
Mike Wheeler : [Waking Dustin and Lucas] Guys, guys, he's up. Will's up, guys! Guys come on!
Mike Wheeler : [Bursting into the hospital room] Byers!
Joyce Byers : [Mike and Lucas pile on Will] Be careful. Be careful with him!
Dustin Henderson : Move!
[Yanks Mike and Lucas off Will to hug him]
Jonathan Byers : Guys, guys, go easy on him.
Lucas Sinclair : You won't believe what happened when you were gone, man.
Dustin Henderson : It was mental!
Lucas Sinclair : You had a funeral...
Dustin Henderson : Jenniffer Hayes was crying...
Lucas Sinclair : And Troy peed himself!
Will Byers : What?
Dustin Henderson : In front of the whole school!
Mike Wheeler : [Will coughs uncontrollably] You okay?
Will Byers : It got me. The Demogorgon.
Mike Wheeler : We know. It's okay. It's dead. We made a new friend. She stopped it. She saved us. But she's gone now.
Dustin Henderson : Her name's Eleven.
Will Byers : Like the number?
Lucas Sinclair : Well, we call her 'El' for short.
Dustin Henderson : She's basically a wizard.
Lucas Sinclair : [whispering] She has superpowers.
Mike Wheeler : More like a yoda.
Dustin Henderson : She flipped a van with her mind!
Mike Wheeler : And it sailed over us!
[excited chatter continues]
