[Cut to group assembled in the living room.]
THE DOCTOR: I suppose you all are wondering why we’re here.
STRAX: We get to blow things up?
THE DOCTOR: That is . . no. Why would we do that again?
STRAX: Why would we not?
[A knock is heard at the door]
CRAIG: [Sighing] And that would be?
[The door opens and an excessively handsome man enters]
EXCESSIVELY HANDSOME MAN: Jack Harkness, at your service.
THE DOCTOR: Him, actually.
JACK: [To the group] Clara! Strax! Where’s the Doctor?
[Everyone points to the Doctor]
STRAX: He has a new head this time.
JACK: [Sizing the Doctor up] Again? You look . . .
THE DOCTOR: Different, yes. That’s how regenerations work.
JACK: Kind of a lottery, eh? So, why am I here? I’m kind of used to you coming to visit me.
CLARA: He lost the TARDIS.
JACK: You lost the . . .
THE DOCTOR: It’s complicated. So how are you with American military bases?
JACK: [Grinning] I’ve got some . . . connections. Why?
JEN: [Bringing laptop up to Jack] We want these. Hopefully within four days.
CLARA: Four days?
STORMY: I’m going to be the one putting these things together, but I’m not going to be able to assemble fifty of these things overnight. I might not need that long, but that reduces the variables.
JACK: [Looking at laptop] Yeah, that’s a black R&D site, they’ve been really protective about them lately. They’re not going to give anything away. [to Jen] How did you even find out about that?
JEN: I’m kind of amazing, and this tech is pretty primitive. If I missed anything it’s offline, so we can’t count on it existing.
GRIFF: [Sardonically] She’s also humble sometimes.
JEN: Occasionally. But this is really important and I don’t want to screw it up with substandard parts or something good that we can’t easily assemble in time. I don’t like it, but this is the best option by a large margin.
JACK: Well then . . . let’s see what we can do. I’ll put in a couple of calls. Until then let’s assume that even I don’t have enough charm to get us in there.
CLARA: [Mimicking Griff] He’s also humble sometimes.
[Jack fiddles with the laptop]
JACK: Where’s whatever it is you need?
[Jen clicks a couple of buttons and the a red dot appears, several stories underground at the end of a maze of tunnels.]
JACK: Of course it is. We’re going to need a lot of manpower to get through this.
STORMY: Unless. . .
GRIFF: What’re you thinking, Stormy?
STORMY: You guys are only looking at that one facility, but what’s nearby?
[Jen begins excitedly typing on the laptop]
JACK: Well there we go!
[Jen points to what appears to be an old subway tunnel of some sort, passing close to one of the lower chambers in the facility]
JEN: That bypasses almost everything . . . but we’d need some explosives or tunneling equipment to get through . . . wow, that’s like thirty meters.
[Jack looks over at Strax, who is grinning broadly]
STRAX: I have JUST the thing!
