Peter Lockwood : [watching Supergirl on TV] Yeah, sure. We can all leap tall buildings in a single bound. And we can punch him into the middle of next week.
[Ben turns the television off]
Peter Lockwood : I was watching that.
George Lockwood : More like hate-watching it.
Ben Lockwood : George. Uh, dad, I think it's quite enough.
Peter Lockwood : Show that speech over and over again like it was the Gettysburg Address. Project Maniac was weeks ago.
Lydia Lockwood : It's "Myriad".
Peter Lockwood : Oh, that's right. Project Myriad. Stupid name. And who was responsible? Other roaches from her home planet.
Lydia Lockwood : Pete, we don't talk like that in this house.
George Lockwood : No, it-it's fine. I hear it at school sometimes.
Peter Lockwood : W-w-what's the problem? Just saying that, you know, aliens are resilient like cockroaches. You know, a planet may die, but they survive and infest someone else's.
Ben Lockwood : Dad!
Peter Lockwood : What? Supergirl's family invades our planet with the power of gods. And all us little people are just supposed to sit back, relax, and have hope? Is that it? Meanwhile, our president offers them all amnesty? Amnesty. So, you tell me, Georgie, how deep does this conspiracy go?
Ben Lockwood : What are you doing home?
Peter Lockwood : I shut it down.
Ben Lockwood : Oh, not another blaster.
George Lockwood : Whole factory.
Ben Lockwood : What?
Lydia Lockwood : He went to the bank for the loan. They said no.
Peter Lockwood : Hell with them and everyone else.
Ben Lockwood : Oh, god, dad, uh... I am so sorry.
Peter Lockwood : Spare me. This is what happens when you're too soft, when you don't stand up and fight.
Ben Lockwood : Fight... dad, fight who?
Peter Lockwood : You know who.
George Lockwood : The roaches.
George Lockwood : Sorry.
Ben Lockwood : I think maybe we should leave.
Lydia Lockwood : Leave? This is our home.
Ben Lockwood : Yeah, it is, but it's quickly running out of food and water.
Lydia Lockwood : There is nowhere for us to go. The Daxamites have set up checkpoints.
Ben Lockwood : Okay, well, then we drive as far as we can, maybe we can sneak around the checkpoints, get to Coast City, but we have to try something.
Peter Lockwood : [entering] Try something? Yeah. No, how about we try this? How about we... we stay and we fight for what's ours? This is our home, Ben. We're not refugees.
George Lockwood : [entering behind Peter] Dad, just wait here. Supergirl will come and save us.
Ben Lockwood : No. No, she won't, because Supergirl is an alien just like the invaders. And fight, dad? Fight with what? Because all we have is right here, but you know what? That's okay, because we are a family. And we can come together as a family. So, dad, you and Georgie get the bags. Lydia, ready the car. I'll get the supplies.
[seeing his father is reluctant]
Ben Lockwood : Hey, listen. We can do this.
