Chapter 2. Genetic Repo Man

Graverobber

Out from the night, from the mist, steps the figure.
No one really knows his name for sure.
He stands at six foot six head and shoulders.
Pray he never comes knocking at your door.
Say that you once bought a heart or new corneas,
but somehow never managed to square away your debts?
He won't bother to write or to phone you.
He'll just rip the still-beating heart from your chest!

Sing Reeeeeeeppppppoooooo Maaaaaaaaannnn x2

Now, you could run. you could hide. you could try to.
But he always has a way of finding you.
He will come at your weakest hour,
when no one is around who might rescue you.

Sing Reeeeeeeppppppoooooo Maaaaaaaaannnn x2

And none of us are free from this horror,
for many years ago, we all fell in debt.
New body parts were needed to perfect our image
and until our debts are clear we will live in fear of the...

Sing Reeeeeeeppppppoooooo Maaaaaaaaannnn x4

As the camera rushes toward Sanitarium Island ake some sort of funny Miami Vice reference.

As the camera moves toward the flying billboard Hey look! it's the in-flight movie!

As the camera falls downward, raise your hands as if on a roller coaster and scream

Comming to Six Flags, it's Auschwitz the roller coaster

When the elevator opens on the Rotti Guards Top floor. GeneCo offices, Rotti Guards and Worf's half brother Nikolai

When you see Rotti for the first time, say This man also has no neck

ROTTI

What is this?

It's Moseley's vacation pictures

You disgust me.

When the elevator opens on the doctor Fifth floor, quick, violent death

When the doctor comes out of the elevator and walks across the room, repeat:

I love my job, i love my job

After the Doctor hands Rotti the clipboard, yell is it lupis? its never lupis.

DOCTOR

i'm sorry, mr. largo. i'm afraid... i'm afraid it's terminal.

like the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow.

you don't have much time. it's spreading rapidly. like Amber's legs

After Rotti slams down the clipboard I told you to print this on paper

After the doctor is shot No doctors were harmed in the making of this movie


Chapter 3. Things You See In a Graveyard

Wait till halfway through the Mourners' second "Things you see in a graveyard" to yell:

hey rotti! what you have for breakfast this morning

ROTTI

Maggots! Vermin!
You want the world for nothing.
Commence your groveling.
Rotti, your king, is dying.
Even rotti largo cannot prevent this passing.
Who will inherit geneco?
I'll keep those vultures guessing.

As shilo opens her book to read and the bug crawls across the tomb and she looks up:

Holy shit! is that a bug?

Wait till she opens up the book to the right page:

Yup! It's a bug.

shilo

This will be quick. that's what she said
It's in my sight. no its not
I'll capture it no you won't
then run back inside
and be back home in time to watch my buffy reruns

GRAVEROBBER

Industrialization has crippled the globe
(Enjoy geneco's day and night time formula of zydrate.)
Nature failed as technology spread
(Ask a gentern if zydrate is right for you!)
And in this wake, a market erected
(Buying zydrate from an unlicensed source is illegal!)
An entire city built on top of the dead!
And you can finance your bones, and your kidneys.
For every market a sub market grows. He makes my sub market grow
But best you be punctual with making your payments.
Lest it be you on the concrete below.
It's quick, it's clean, it's pure. It's snot
It could change your life rest assured.
It's the 21st century cure.
And it's my job, to steal and rob
Ggggrrrrrrrraaaavvvvvvvvveeeeeeeesssssssssss!!!!!!!!

GENECOP

We have graverobbers on premises. i repeat: graverobbers on premises.lock down! lock down! i repeat: graverobbers on premises.

SHILO

no, no, no, no, no! it's locked!

That's the purpose of a lock down.

GRAVEROBBER

this way, kid.

SHILO

Wait! you're going to get us caught! wait! wait!

Right after Graverobber falls through the wall yell BINGO!

GRAVEROBBER

Jackpot! Same thing
so why care for these petty obsessions?
your designer heart still beats with common blood.
and what if you could have genetic perfection?
would you change who you are if you could?
'cause it's quick! it's clean and it's pure. It's still snot

SHILO

No. I shouldn't be here.

GRAVEROBBER

It could change your life, rest assured

SHILO

I have got to get home.

GRAVEROBBER

It's the 21st century cure!

SHILO

This cannot be happening.

GRAVEROBBER

And it's my job to steal and rob...
Ggggrrrrrrrraaaaavvvvvveeeessssssss!!!!!!!!
Ggggrrrrrrrraaaaavvvvvveeeessssssss!!!!!!!!

ROTTI

Let them go

REPOMAN

Hey!

SHILO

no! no! i can't breath! i didn't know!

Replace 'i can't breath' with I can't read

SHILO

dad?

NATHAN

hey. that was a close one

SHILO

dad.

NATHAN

shhh, too close

SHILO

dad, what happened?

NATHAN

you're gonna be all right now that's all that matters

SHILO

was i outside?

NATHAN

shhh, no, shi

SHILO

there were these bodies

NATHAN

you missed your medicine and fell unconscious

SHILO

they were all dead.

NATHAN

nonsense. please be more cautious. you could go into shock

SHILO

but it was real, dad

NATHAN

i am the doctor, and i'm your father

SHILO

i didn't imagine this

NATHAN

please, shilo, drop it

SHILO

couldn't have fathomed this

NATHAN

please, shilo, stop it.

SHILO

dad, i could smell the dead.

NATHAN

you could have died! you... you scared me to death!

And you made me break the song.

The blood disease that took your dear mother from us
passed from her and into your veins.
I'd be lost if i were to lose you.
I will stop at nothing to keep you safe

SHILO

I'll take my meds, dad. don't you worry

NATHAN

just until i find a cure.

Replace 'find the cure' with fix your wig

Your mother, rest her soul, would be so proud of you
Though you cannot see her, she is here with you She's invisible? Why couldn't I inherit that? We will always be there for you in your time of need
Shilo, you're the world to me.

Replace 'you're the world to me' with drink this poison for me

Shilo, take your medicine.

I don't hear you drinking.

SHILO

I'm infected

Replace 'infected' with annoying

i'm infected
by your genetics!
shilo i'm the doctor! that was a terrible nathan impression
shilo i'm your father! better
oh, shilo that was close! almost there
take your medicine! perfect
i'm infected by your genetics. i'm infected by your genetics
and i don't think that i can be fixed. no i don't think that i can be fixed!
oh tell me why, oh why are my genetics such a bitch!
it's this blood condition. damn this blood condition!
mother can you hear me? thanks for the disease.
now i'm am sequestered, part of the collection.
that's what is expected when you are infected. (x3)
how much of it's genetics? how much of it is fate?
how much of it depends on the choices that we make?
he says i have her eyes, do i also inherit his shame?
is heredity the culprit? can i stop it, or am i a slave?
oh, i want to go outside, outside. one more time for the pre-ops
oh, i want to go outside, outside. Mission accomplished

Repeat Jump! when Shilo is on the balcony

ROTTI

Ashes. Dust.
My children were a bust.
They shall inherit nothing. no, no.
My legacy is too great to throw away on ingrates.
Nathan wallace had potential till he stole my marni away.
In denial, nathan blamed himself for marni's sudden death Who the fuck are you talking to?
and never once thought to suspect the man who wrote his checks.
I guess... I'll take it to my death!
I'll take it to my death.
Marni, it's rotti.
You never should have left me.
I would have given you the world.
It's been difficult
to see you after what you've put me through.
You forced my hand and made me do
Well, it looks like i'll be joining you.
It seems the man who cured the globe
Cannot stop his own extinction.

Chapter 6. Thankless Job

NATHAN

It's a thankless job
but somebody's got to do it.
Peeling off the tissue inch by inch
skinnin' off the muscles too
harvesting the kidneys for the fall
savin' up the livers in the fridge
no one ever thanks me when i'm done.
how self-absorbed people can be
with a slice or a snip,
eeny meeny miney moe
with a cut and a stitch,
returning organs good as new.
It's a thankless job
but somebody's got to do it

VICTIM

got to do it

NATHAN

Like a mop.

VICTIM

Like a mop

NATHAN

and a broom.

Chapter 10. Chase The Morning

When Mag's driver cocks the shotgun Marie Antionette says 'Let them eat lead'

mag

so we can speak.

i was told you died with her.
all these years have come and gone
how do i put this? i'm your god-mom

shilo

state your business.

mag

shilo

what do you want?

mag

i want, i want to finally meet you
something real to cling to, leave you
with the hope that you will go do
all you're meant to, all i failed to.
in you is a world of promise
we have both been kept in bondage
but you could learn from all my failures.

shilo

i'm not supposed to talk to strangers.

mag

or let them through the gate?

shilo

that, either.
a big risk.

mag

a big fence.

shilo

marni

shilo

oh, my god. mom?
how'd you do that?

mag

shilo

that. that eye thing.

mag

these eyes can do more than see.

shilo

i know. i mean, i've seen you sing.

mag

where?

shilo

from my window.
i can see the world from there. small world
name the stars and constellations.
count the cars and watch the seasons.

mag

i wish we could have watched together

shilo

i can't have guests.

mag

never?

shilo

ever.
if dad found out that i'd been let out
or that you'd been let in...

mag

i should go, then, before i do
promise me you won't

shilo

better that you don't.

shilo/mag

don't forget me don't forget a sheltered rose
it's best if i resume my life needs a little room to bloom
inside my bedroom outside her bedroom

marni

chase the morning, yield for nothing (x2)

mag

let your life be a dream.
integrity, honesty
it's too late for me.
don't look back till you're free
to chase the morning

marni

yield for nothing chase the morning,
yield for nothing. yield for nothing!

mag

i need to give her her medication.

shilo

nathan

nathan

shilo

nathan

mag

nathan, you are hurting me

shilo

nathan

shilo/mag/nathan

nathan

shilo

nathan

there are things in life
that we do best to leave alone.

shilo

she'll die, you must help her, dad!

nathan

that are beyond control.

shilo

you must stop her, dad!

nathan

that you don't want to know.

shilo

will you save mag?
she will lose her eyes
unless you stop this repo man!

nathan

shilo, this is senseless.

shilo

dad, you have to try.

nathan

shilo, this is pointless.

shilo

you can't let her die, dad!

nathan

shilo! please, shut up!
I've been wanting half the movie for that

nathan

your mother's death taught me to accept
that nothing ever lasts in this world.
foolish dreams can destroy a grown man.
what chance has a 17-year old girl?

shilo

i don't know what i was thinking.
there's no sense in girlish dreaming.
i'm just 17! how old
17!


Chapter 11. Seventeen

shilo

Tantrum Two. Electric Boogaloo.

seventeen!
experiment with something living
seventeen!
cause i'm sweeter than 16!
hey, hey! hey, hey!

i've always longed for true affection
but you compared me to a corpse!
stay with the dead
i'm joining the living
because i'm freer than 16!
hey, hey! hey, hey!

nathan

shilo.

shilo

something's changing
i can feel it.
i'm 17 now
why can't you see it?
17, and you can't stop me!
17, and you won't boss me!
you cannot control me, father.

nathan

I'm sorry. They always say that
Shilo.

amber

rotti

daughter, please, it's not that bad

amber

this is your fault,
i asked you to help me

rotti

now, amber, please.
i warned you about this
happiness is not a warm scalpel

amber

it's not fair!

rotti

rotti

i did not complain
when you changed your name
from largo to sweet!

amber

i need a stage name!

rotti

you are a disgrace!
your genes are not worthy of mine! Reveal Nixon's mask

amber

are you okay, daddy? Don't kiss me you don't know where that face has been.

rotti

i'll have one of my surgeons fix you up
so you can sing tonight.
It's gonna take more than surgery to fix that

amber

thanks, daddy. Don't kiss me with that face, you don't know where it's been.

rotti

flesh is weak.
blood is cheap.
inconsistent. consistently.
use your sense,
save your cents.
the only thing with persistence is
gold, it makes the world go round
gold, it makes the world go round
but! before i go my kids will know
about the man they have crossed
as marni did the day she fled
and became nathan's wife
she forced my hand,
he dug her grave.
i will not be betrayed
empty the trash of all of them
and leave it all to the kid!
lay the bait.
shilo's fate.
but only if and will she appreciate
that gold, it makes the world go round
gold, it makes the world go round
gold!

rotti

shilo! i have your cure!
tonight, all will be revealed!

nathan

help us catch him.
this former geneco trainee
who's lost his mind completely
and managed to escape me.
you saw him in the graveyard.
thank god my guards responded.
it seems this fiend has set his teeth on you,
so be on guard. he's coming.
we'll use you as bait
to draw this snake out of his hole,
and i am sorry, shilo, for that,
but this is your defining moment.
will you let yourself be trapped,
or will you use the to trap him?

announcer

put your hands together for geneco's favorite

Chapter 14. Chromaggia

announcer

And now, without further ado,
the event you've all been waiting for.
GeneCo proudly presents Blind Mag.

mag

tanto tempo fa,
un uccello fatale
di nome, chromaggia,
incrociÒ in volo la freccia
di un, arciere, lungo le coste di lava
per anni, pensando di essere,
inseguita, scappÒ dalla freccia,
chromaggia,
chromaggia, perchÉ non affronti il pericolo?
la freccia era legata all'ala,
e lei volva per liberarsene,
tirando la freccia,
altri son ferriti
per mia colpa, mia colpa
giÚ!
verso la bocca del diavolo!
la sua freccia, i miei occhi.
chromaggia,
come take these eyes.
i would rather be blind!
how does blind mag feel about geneco?
she's on the fence
blind mag's death made hot topic a sad panda


Chapter 13. Testify

announcer

ladies and gentlemen, don't panic.
stay in your seats.
it's all part of the show.

rotti

stay tuned, folks!
you don't want to move, folks!
'cause there's more excitement coming.
as an encore,
geneco will cure
a very sick and needy young girl.
she's been caged up
like a monster
by her overbearing father
but tonight we're gonna set him right
and for all your viewing pleasures!


Chapter 15. Let The Monster Rise

After nathan takes off his helmet and looks at shilo you are so grounded

nathan

didn't i tell you not to go out?
didn't i?

shilo

you did, you did

nathan

didn't i say the world was cruel?
didn't i?

shilo

you did, you did

nathan

then tell me how this happened,
what i did wrong,
tell me why
can't we just go home, shi,
and forget this dreadful night?

shilo

didn't you say that you were different?
didn't you?

nathan

i am, i am

shilo

say you aren't that person, say it

nathan

i am, i am

shilo

then tell me how to act, dad
what to say, dad,
tell me why
all you've ever told me
every word is a lie
didn't you say that you'd protect me?
didn't you?

nathan

i tried, i tried

shilo

is that how you'd help me? is it?

nathan

i tried, i tried

shilo

don't help me anymore, dad.
you are dead dad, in my eyes
some one has replaced you.
dad, i hate you, go and die

nathan

didn't i build a house, a home?
didn't i?
didn't i raise her all alone?
didn't i?
then rotti took her from me,
stole my shilo,
he's to blame.
have i failed my daughter?
then let the father die!
and let the monster rise!
after shilo runs onto the stage no one walks by luigi largo and gets away with it

shilo

dad!

rotti

you've exceeded all my plans

luigi

more than you can say for amber

rotti

more than i can say for you!

luigi

what?

pavi

ha!

rotti

or your just as useless brother!

pavi

ooooooohhhh

shilo

i just want to get my cure

rotti

and i promise to deliver

nathan

don't you lay a hand on her.

rotti

hold your tongue before an elder.

nathan

touch her, and i swear i'll kill you!

rotti

bring it on, you cheap imposter.
even though i'm terminally ill.
i'm dying, you idiots.

luigi/pavi

please don't say you're dying, father. please say you ain't dying, father.

rotti

so i planned my perfect end.

luigi/pavi


a tale befitting any opera.

rotti

an ending only i could spin.

nathan

ending you will be my pleasure.

shilo

i no longer trust you, dad.

luigi/pavi

you can never trust a monster.

rotti

and there's more beneath his mask.

luigi/pavi

did you know he killed your mother?

nathan

it was just an accident

shilo

what?

luigi/pavi

accidents don't end in murder.

nathan

shilo, believe me!

rotti

and that's not his greatest fib

shilo

someone tell me what is going on

all/shilo/nathan

tell her
tell her!
tell her! someone tell me
tell her! what is going on!
tell her! let's leave!
tell her!
tell her! let's leave!
tell her! someone tell me
tell her! what is going on!
tell her! tell me! no more!
tell her! tell me!
tell her! tell me! no more!
no more!

rotti

may i introduce you to the man who made you sick?
he's poisoned all your medicine

shilo

i can't breathe she still hasn't learned to read yet

rotti

you've got to fight through it.

nathan

someone, please,
please help my daughter

rotti

this will pass.
you've got to fight through it.

nathan

i've deceived the only one that matters!

shilo

i need my pill.

nathan

you need to know.

rotti

you've got to fight through it

nathan

it's not your fault.

rotti

believe me, shilo.

nathan

it's me who failed you.

shilo

my stomach.

rotti

it's his medicine!

nathan

my medicine.

shilo

it's your medicine?

nathan

i'm the cause of all your sickness
now we get to watch the whole movie again in 30 seconds
Hey! These scenes weren't in the movie. They are now
When camera is back on Shilo Ever have one of those heavy flow days?
After shilo wakes up you mean her cure was a montage?
God, I hate gazpacho

rotti

your mother once promised her love to me.
had she never fled,
you'd be mine.
deny your father now,
for the world to see.
kill him!

luigi

kill him!

shilo

no.

rotti

and i'll leave you geneco

luigi

what?!
throw popcorn

pavi

all of it?

rotti

oh, yes.

pavi

oh, no!

rotti / shilo

so witness it, people!
all i have to do is sign the paper
all you have to do is pull the trigger.
i want you to do what / you want to
is right / pay me
this man killed your mother / to kill my
your mother! / father
he betrayed you both / you want me to
he's a liar / kill my father
and he poisoned you / you want me to kill!

shilo

i am not a murderer

rotti

but you share your dad's genetics.
what if he passed this to you?

shilo

i don't have to share his choices

rotti

didn't you say you were infected?
didn't you, didn't you?
She did. She did.

nathan

i poisoned you.
i'm worse than rotti,
imprisoned you.
i couldn't lose you.
what have i done?
forgive me, shilo,
i drugged your blood
oh, god, what have i done to you?

shilo

you used my mother's death
to use my father.
you'd use my father's death
to use me, too.

rotti

your dad deserved whatever happened to him.
he needed me, and so do you.

nathan

i remember.
remember my mistakes.
remember you can change.
remember that i love you.
i'm sorry that i failed you
remember that it's up to you.
to go and shape your life into
one that's worthy of remembering.


Chapter 16. I Didn't Know I'd Love You So Much

shilo

no!
dad! dad, no, please!
somebody!
somebody, please help.

rotti

money-grubbing beggars,
you're no better than they are!
no!
don't come near me.
you're embarrassing.
you're disgusting. you're not men. you're creatures.
i'm embarrassed by you.
get away!
i don't need you, not either one of you.
go away!
don't show your face to me. what face?
you're disgusting.
you're not my daughter. you're nothing.
when i'm gone, geneco will crumble.
i doubt the world will remember
how lucky they were to have
rotti largo.
tiiiiimmmmmmbbbbbeeeeerrrrrr

shilo

dad, be still.
there is nothing you need say.
it can wait
um, no! it really can't!

nathan

shi, your mother's calling me.
with rollover minutes

shilo

sometimes i wanted to cry
when the people on tv
were not quite the way we were
somehow i guess i just knew.
but i didn't know i'd love you so much.
i didn't know i'd love you so much
but i do

nathan

sometimes i'd stay up all night masterbating
wishing to god
that i was the one who died.
sometimes there's not enough time.
but i didn't know i'd love you so much.
i didn't know i'd love you so much
but i do

shilo

i didn't know i'd love you so much

nathan

i didn't know i'd love you so much

nathan/shilo

i didn't know i'd love you so much but i do

nathan

shilo, go

shilo

dad, i will not leave you here.
you will live and you're on my leg

nathan

but you've already saved me, dear.
go and change the world for me

nathan/shilo

and we will always have each other
in our time of need.
daddy / shilo
you're the world to me


Chapter 17. Genetic Emancipation

shilo

years.
it's been so many it's been seventeen years
resenting the years.
in my heredity.
oh, i have hated and loved you.
i have hidden behind you,
but i finally see.
you i've mistaken for destiny.
but the truth is my legacy
is not up to my genes.
Good, 'cause you're not wearing jeans
true,
though the imprint is deep in me,
it will always be up to me.
up to me.
As shilo walks the center isle All rise for the queen
ohh ohh, free at last.
ohh ohh, free at last.

graverobber

goth opera,
blood saga,
sometimes i wonder how we ever got here
old grudges, scorned lovers.
sometimes i wonder why we all don't move on!
'cause we all end up
in a tiny pine box.
a mighty small drop
and a mighty dark plot.
and the mighty fine print
hastens the trip to our epilogue. epilogue?
but the little girl fled
and the king is dead.
and the castle is left for the taking.
but geneco may survive
if it undergoes surgery, surgery.
surgery, surgery.

amber

our heroes will not be forgotten.
geneco will live on,
under new management.
