Mike Wheeler : [El collapses] El! El, are you okay? El! Something's wrong!
Dustin Henderson : She's just drained.
Mike Wheeler : No, she won't wake up!
Mike Wheeler : El. El! El!
Mike Wheeler : [listening to her heartbeat] She's barely breathing.
Lucas Sinclair : We gotta go!
Dr. Martin Brenner : Leave her!
[the boys stand protectively over El]
Dr. Martin Brenner : Step away from the child.
Mike Wheeler : No! You want her, you have to kill us first!
Dustin Henderson : That's right!
Lucas Sinclair : Eat shit!
Lucas Sinclair : [Agents sneak behind the kids, capturing them] No, no! No! You idiot!
Dustin Henderson : Get off me!
Mike Wheeler : Ow! Let go!
Dr. Martin Brenner : [rousing El] Eleven... Eleven, can you hear me?
Eleven : [groggy] Papa?
Dr. Martin Brenner : Yes, yes it's your Papa.
Mike Wheeler : Get off of me!
Dr. Martin Brenner : I'm here now.
Mike Wheeler : Let her go! Let her go you bastard!
Dr. Martin Brenner : [El whimpers] Shh, shhh. You're sick. You're sick but I'm going to make you better. I'm going to take you back home where I can make you well again. Where we can make all of this better. Where no one else gets hurt.
Eleven : Bad... bad...
[trying to pull away and reach for Mike]
Eleven : Mike... Mike! Mike!
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]
Mike Wheeler : [returning to the gym] They're gone.
Lucas Sinclair : What?
Mike Wheeler : Nancy and Jonathan; his car's gone.
Dustin Henderson : They're probably just sucking face somewhere.
Lucas Sinclair : Gross!
Mike Wheeler : No! No way!
Dustin Henderson : Did they go with the Chief?
Mike Wheeler : I don't know!
Eleven : No.
Mike Wheeler : What? Did you see them? Do you know where they went?
Eleven : Yes.
Mike Wheeler : Where? Where did they go?
Eleven : Demogorgon.
Mike Wheeler : Guys, guys! This is crazy. We can't just wait around.
Lucas Sinclair : Mike, in case you forgot, we're still fugitives. The bad men are still looking for us.
Dustin Henderson : Yeah and we don't even know where your sister is.
Mike Wheeler : El can find them.
Dustin Henderson : [pointing] Mike, look at her! I still think we should stick to the Chief's plan.
Lucas Sinclair : Exactly. We stay here, keep El out of sight and keep her safe. That's the most important thing, remember? Besides, she's okay. She's with Jonathan.
Dustin Henderson : Yeah and she's kind of a badass now, so...
[begins to walk away]
Mike Wheeler : Well, where are you going? You just said stick to the plan!
Dustin Henderson : I am, I'm just going to get some chocolate pudding! I'm telling you lunch lady Phyllis hoards that shit!
Mike Wheeler : Are you serious?
Dustin Henderson : El needs to be recharged!
