The Maze Runner (film)

2014 American dystopian science fiction film
(Redirected from The Maze Runner)

The Maze Runner is a 2014 American neo noir dystopian science fiction action thriller film directed by Wes Ball, in his directorial debut, based on James Dashner's 2009 novel of the same name. The film is the first installment in the Maze Runner film series and was produced by Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Wyck Godfrey, Marty Bowen, and Lee Stollman with a screenplay by Noah Oppenheim, Grant Pierce Myers and T.S. Nowlin. The film stars Dylan O'Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Aml Ameen, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Ki Hong Lee, Will Poulter, and Patricia Clarkson. The story follows sixteen-year-old Thomas, portrayed by O'Brien, who awakens in a rusty elevator with no memory of who he is, only to learn he's been delivered to the middle of an intricate maze, along with a large number of other boys, who have been trying to find their way out of the ever-changing labyrinth – all while establishing a functioning society in what they call the Glade.

WCKD is good.
I'd rather risk my life out there than spend the rest of it in here.

ThomasEdit

  • [Teresa: Gally has everyone convinced that you're the reason all this has happened.] Well, he's been right so far. [Minho: What are you talking about?] This place. it's not what we thought it was. It's not a prison, it's a test. It all started when we were kids. They'd give us these challenges. They were experimenting on us. And then people started disappearing. Every month, one after the other, like clockwork. [Newt: They were sending them up into the Maze.] Yeah, but not all of us. [Newt: What do you mean?] Guys, I'm one of them. The people who put you here, I worked with them. I–I watched you guys for years. The entire time you have been here, I– I was on the other side of it. So were you. [Teresa: What?] Teresa, we did this to them.

TeresaEdit

  • I remember water, feeling like I was drowning. These faces staring at me. And this voice, this woman's voice saying the same thing over and over. [Thomas: "WCKD is good."]
  • What if we were sent here for a reason?

AlbyEdit

  • We only have three rules: First, do your part. No time for any freeloaders. Second, never harm another Glader. None of this works unless we have trust. Most importantly, never go beyond those walls. Do you understand me, Greenie?
  • [Last words] Thomas, get them out.

NewtEdit

  • Alright. It's like you've heard, yeah? Every month, the Box sends up a new arrival. But someone had to be first, right? Someone had to have spent a whole month in the Glade alone. That was Alby. I mean, it can't have been easy. But when those other boys started coming up, one after the other, he saw the truth. And he learned that the most important thing is that we all have each other. Because we're all in this together.
  • "She's the last one ever." What the hell does that mean?
  • It doesn't matter. Any of it. Because the people we were before the Maze, they don't even exist anymore. These Creators took care of that. But what does matter is who we are now, and what we do right now. You went into the Maze and you found a way out.

MinhoEdit

  • I think, in all the time we've been here, no one's ever killed a Griever before. When I turned tail and ran, this dumb Shank stood behind to help Alby. Look, I don't know if he's brave or stupid, but whatever it is, we need more of it. I say we make him a Runner.

GallyEdit

  • Day one, Greenie. Rise and shine.
  • We gotta stop meeting like this, Greenie.
  • Do you still think I'm overreacting?
  • Everything started going wrong the minute you showed up. First Ben, then Alby, and now the girl. Everybody saw she recognized you. And I'm betting you know who she is.
  • [Last words] We all do.

Dr. Ava PaigeEdit

  • [In a recorded video] Hello. I'm Dr. Ava Paige. I'm Director of Operations at the World Catastrophe Killzone Department. If you're watching this, that means you've successfully completed the Maze Trials. I wish I could be there in person to congratulate you, but circumstances seem to have prevented it. I'm sure by now you must all be very confused. angry. frightened. I can only assure you that everything that's happened to you, everything we've done to you, it was all done for a reason. You won't remember, but the sun has scorched our world. Billions of lives lost to fire, famine. Suffering on a global scale. The fallout was unimaginable. What came after was worse. We called it the Flare. A deadly virus that attacks the brain. It is violent, unpredictable, incurable, or so we thought. In time a new generation emerged that could survive the virus, suddenly, there was a reason to hope for a cure. But finding it would not be easy. The young would have to be tested, even sacrificed, inside harsh environments where their brain activity could be studied. All in an effort to understand what makes them different. What makes you different. You may not realize it, but you're very important. Unfortunately, your trials have only just begun. [Sparks shower from a door across the room behind Paige. Ragtag soldiers dressed mostly in black break in and start gunning down the white-coated lab personnel as she speaks] As you'll no doubt soon discover, not everyone agrees with our methods. Progress is slow, people are scared. It may be too late for us, for me. But not for you. The outside world awaits. [The armed intruders are firing at the glass panels separating Paige from the rest of the lab: Paige raises a revolver to her temple.] Remember: WCKD is good.
  • Well, I think it's safe to say the Maze Trials were a complete success. I wasn't expecting so many survivors, but the more the merrier. Thomas continues to surprise and impress. And for now, they seem to have taken the bait. It's too soon to say. but they could be the key to everything. So let's move forward. It's time now to begin Phase Two.

ChuckEdit

  • It's basically the same story for all of us. We wake up in the Box, Alby gives us the tour. then here we are. Don't worry. You're already doing better than I did. I clunked my pants three times before they got me out of the Pit– [Sees Thomas walking towards the Maze] Oh, come on! [Runs after Thomas]
  • [Thomas: Hey, what do you got there?] [Shows the small carved stone figure to Thomas] [Thomas: Oh, that came out pretty damn good. What's that from?] It's from my parents. [Thomas: Do you remember your parents?] No. well, I mean, I know I must have them. And wherever they are, I'm sure they miss me. But I can't miss them back because I don't remember them.
  • [Last words] Thank you. Thank you.

FrypanEdit

  • You mean, besides a Griever pancake?

JeffEdit

  • Yeah, what if Thomas is right? Maybe he can lead us home.

BenEdit

  • Hey, Chuck. New Greenie, huh? How does it feel to be promoted?
  • [Last words] I'll get better!

ZartEdit

  • [After Thomas runs away from him and the Gladers] Hey, we got a Runner!
  • [After seeing a dead Griever] That's disgusting.

WinstonEdit

  • Gally, It's doesn't feel right, man.

DialogueEdit

[Thomas arrives in the Glade, the Gladers open the doors of the Box, Gally jumps down to the Box and looks at Thomas]
Gally: Day one, Greenie. [Grabs Thomas by his shirt] Rise and shine. [Pulls Thomas out of the Box and throws him onto the grass]
[The Gladers gather around Thomas, Thomas gets up and runs away from them]
Zart: Hey, we got a Runner!
[Thomas runs, but trips and falls, the Gladers, except Gally, laugh at this, Thomas gets up and looks around the Glade]

[Two of the Gladers throw Thomas into the Pit, a set of separate holes dug in the ground and covered by a wood shelter and bamboo cage doors, close the door, and walk off, Thomas gets up and looks through the door of the Pit and sees the Gladers milling about the Glade and a goat jumping on a cart, Alby approaches the Pit, causing Thomas to fall to the floor, Alby crouches down at the door of the Pit]
Alby: Hey. Hey there, Greenbean. You're not gonna run again, okay? Good. [Gets up and opens the door of the Pit and crouches down at the doorway] My name is Alby. Now, can you tell me anything about yourself, who you are, where you came from? Anything at all? [Thomas is visibly confused and distressed; he looks around distractedly, rubbing his hands together and giving no response] Can you tell me your name?
Thomas: [Visibly frightened] I– I can't remember anything. Why can't I remember anything?
Alby: It's okay. Hey, relax. Relax. It's normal. It happens to us all. You get your name back in a day or two. It's the one thing they let us keep.
Thomas: What is this place?
Alby: [Holding his hand out] Let me show you.

[Alby is showing Thomas around the Glade]
Alby: We eat here. We sleep here. We grow our own food. We build our own shelter. Whatever we need, the Box provides. The rest is up to us.
Thomas: The Box?
[Thomas and Alby turn to look to the Box]
Alby: Yeah, they send them once a month with fresh supplies and a new Greenie. This month, that's you. Congratulations.
Thomas: Sent up? By who, though? Who put us here?
Alby: That we don't know.
Newt: [Approaches Thomas and Alby] Hey, you alright, Alby?
Alby: Greenbean, meet Newt. When I'm not around, he's in charge.
[Thomas and Newt shake hands]
Newt: Well, it's a good thing you're always around then. Listen, that was some dash you made earlier. You know, for a second, I thought you had the chops to be a Runner, till you face-planted. That's great.
Thomas: Wait, a Runner?
Alby: Newt, do me a favor. Go find Chuck.
Newt: Alright.
Alby: Thanks.
[Newt walks off, while Alby continues showing Thomas around the Glade]
Alby: Look, I'm sorry to rush this. You came up a little late, and there's a lot to do. We got something special planned tonight. Yeah, you'll see.
[Thomas and Alby arrive at the tower]
Alby: [Climbs up the ladder] Hope you're not afraid of heights. Let's go. Come on.
[Alby climbs up the ladder, with Thomas watching him, At the top of the tower, Thomas and Alby look out over the Glade]
Alby: This is all we got. We've worked hard for it. If you respect this place, you and I will get along just fine.
Thomas: What's out there? [Points to the Maze]
Alby: We only have three rules: First, do your part. No time for any freeloaders. Second, never harm another Glader. None of this works unless we have trust. Most importantly, never go beyond those walls. Do you understand me, Greenie?
[Thomas looks at Alby before Chuck arrives at the tower]
Chuck: Hey, Alby!
Thomas and Alby look over a railing and see Chuck waving up to them]
Alby: Hey, Chuck. Where you been, man?

[Chuck is setting up a hammock for Thomas]
Chuck: It's basically the same story for all of us. We wake up in the Box, Alby gives us the tour. then here we are. Don't worry. You're already doing better than I did. I clunked my pants three times before they got me out of the Pit– [Turns around to find that Thomas is gone, and then sees him walking towards the Maze] Oh, come on!
[Chuck runs after Thomas]
Chuck: [Catches up to Thomas] Dude, where are you going?
Thomas: I just wanna see.
Chuck: You can look around all you want, but you better not go out there.
Thomas: Why not? What's through there?
Chuck: I don't know. I just know what I'm told. And we're not supposed to leave.
[Thomas and Chuck see Minho and Ben returning to the Glade, Minho and Ben run past Thomas and Chuck]
Ben: Hey, Chuck. New Greenie, huh? How does it feel to be promoted?
Chuck: Feels great, Ben.
Thomas: I thought no one was allowed to leave.
Chuck: I said we're not allowed to leave. They're different, they're Runners. They know more about the Maze than anyone.
Thomas: Wait, what?
Chuck: What?
Thomas: What? You just said "maze."
Chuck: I did?
Thomas: Yeah.
[Thomas approaches the entrance of the Maze]
Chuck: [Tries to stop Thomas from going into the Maze] Where are you going? What are you doing?
Thomas: I'm just gonna take a look.
Chuck: I told you, you can't. No one leaves, especially not now. It's not safe.
Thomas: Okay, alright, I'm not gonna go. [Starts to walk into the Maze]

[Thomas starts to walk into the Maze, but Gally stops him]
Gally: Hey! [Pushes Thomas down to the ground and stands over him] We gotta stop meeting like this, Greenie.
Thomas: [Gets up and pushes Gally away from him] Get off me!
Gally: [Tries to stop Thomas from going into the Maze] Alright, calm, calm, calm, calm!
[The Gladers see Gally trying to stop Thomas from going into the Maze and run to them]
Thomas: Don't touch me!
Gally: Whoa! Take it easy! Take it easy! Just relax.
Thomas: Hey, what the hell is wrong with you guys?
Newt: Just calm down, alright?
Thomas: No, okay? Why won't you tell me what's out there?
Alby: We're just trying to protect you, man.
Newt: It's for your own good.
Thomas: You guys can't just keep me here!
Alby: I can't let you leave.
Thomas: Why not?
[Thomas and the Gladers hear a noise coming from the Maze and turn to the corridor of the Maze]
Thomas: What the hell?
[Thomas and the Gladers see the walls of the Maze closing, then Gally turns to Thomas]
Gally: Next time, I'm gonna let you leave.
[Gally walks off, then Alby turns to Thomas]
Alby: Welcome to the Glade.
[Alby walks off with the Gladers, while Thomas continues looking at the walls of the Maze]

[At night, the Gladers throw flamming spears at the base of a large wooden statue, the flamming spears set the statue on fire, the Gladers celebrate, a Glader does a series of acrobatic flips, Gally sits with some of the Gladers, and the Gladers raise their drinks in a toast, Thomas and Newt sit facing the closed door of the Maze]
Newt: Hell of a first day, Greenie. Here. [Gives the drink to Thomas] Put some hair on your chest.
Thomas: [Takes the drink from Newt and drinks from it, but spits it out] Oh, my god! What is that? [Gives the drink back to Newt]
Newt: [Takes the drink back from Thomas] I don't even know. It's Gally's recipe. It's a trade secret.
[Thomas and Newt turn around and see Gally wrestling a Glader]
Thomas: Yeah, well, he's still an asshole.
Newt: He saved your life today. Trust me. The Maze is a dangerous place.
Thomas: We're trapped here, aren't we?
Newt: For the moment. But– [Turns around and points to Minho and the Runners] you see those guys? There, by the fire? Those are the Runners. And that guy in the middle there, that's Minho, he's the Keeper of the Runners. Now every morning, when those doors open, they run the Maze. Mapping it. Memorizing it. Trying to find a way out.
Thomas: How long have they been looking?
Newt: Three years.
Thomas: And they haven't found anything?
Newt: It's a lot easier said than done. Listen.
[Thomas and Newt hearing a noise coming from the Maze]
Newt: You hear that? That's the Maze, changing. It changes every night.
Thomas: How is that even possible?
Newt: You can ask the people that put us in here if you ever meet the bastards. Listen, the truth is, the Runners are the only ones that really know what's out there. They're the strongest and the fastest of us all, and it's a good thing, too, because if they don't make it back before those doors close, then they're stuck out there for the night. And no one's ever survived a night in the Maze.
Thomas: What happens to them?
Newt: Well, we call them Grievers. Of course, no one's ever seen one and lived to tell about it. But they're out there. Right, well, that's enough questions for one night. Come on. You're supposed to be the guest of honor.
Thomas: Oh, well, no, no–
Newt: No! No, no, come on.
[Newt gets up and gets Thomas up, Gally throws a Glader down to the ground, Thomas and Newt walk around the bonfire]
Newt: [Points to the Builders] Over there, we got the Builders. They're very good with their hands, but they're not a lot going on upstairs. [Points to Winston and the Slicers] And we got Winston, he's the Keeper of the Slicers. [Points to Jeff and Clint] And we got two Med-jacks, Clint and Jeff. [Jeff and Clint pass by him] They spend most of their time bandaging up the Slicers.
[Thomas and Newt stop walking and look at each other]
Thomas: What if I wanna be a Runner?
Newt: Have you listened to a word I've just said? No one wants to be a Runner. And besides, you gotta get chosen.
Thomas: Get chosen by who?

[Gally throws a Glader at Thomas' back, Thomas faces Gally]
Gally: What do you say, Greenie? Wanna see what you're made of?
[Jeff and the Gladers chant "Greenie! Greenie!" the Gladers gather around Thomas and Gally, with Minho watching them]
Gally: Okay. Alright. The rules are simple, Greenie. I try to push you out of the circle, you try and last more than five seconds. Ready?
[Gally shoves Thomas into Zart and the Gladers, Zart and the Gladers push Thomas off them and Gally throws Thomas down to the ground]
Gally: Come on, Greenie. We're not done yet.
Thomas: [Gets up] Stop calling me Greenie.
Gally: Stop calling you that? What do you wanna be called? Shank? What do you think, boys? Does he look like a Shank?
[Thomas charges at Gally, but Gally grabs his shoulders, Thomas and Gally grapple, and Gally throws Thomas down to the ground]
Gally: You know what? I think I've settled on Shank.
[Thomas barrels into Gally's midsection, but Gally drives him back, Thomas throws Gally down to the ground]
Thomas: Not bad for a Greenie, huh?
[Gally kicks Thomas' leg, knocking him down to the ground, Thomas lifts his head and remembers something]
Thomas: Thomas. [Gets up] Thomas. Hey! Thomas! I remember my name! I'm Thomas!
[The Gladers cheer and gather around Thomas, Frypan approaches Thomas and gives a drink to him, Thomas takes it]
Frypan: Welcome home, Thomas.
[Thomas drinks from the drink Frypan gave him, the Gladers continue cheering, Gally approaches Thomas]
Gally: Good job, Thomas.
[Thomas and Gally shake hands before they and the Gladers hear a Griever roaring in the Maze and turn to the entrance of the Maze]
Thomas: What the hell was that?
Gally: That, my friend, was a Griever. Don't worry. You're safe here with us. Nothing gets through those walls.
[Gally walks off, while Alby turns to the Gladers]
Alby: Alright, guys. Let's tuck it in for the night. Come on. It was a good night.
[The Gladers walk off, while Thomas and Frypan shake hands before Frypan walks off, Thomas looks towards the Maze]

[Thomas has run into the Maze as Minho, Keeper of the Runners, struggled to make it back with an unconscious Alby before the doors of the Maze close for the night. Not even a second after he makes it to Minho the doors slam shut behind him.]
Minho: Good job. You just killed yourself.
Thomas: W– what?
[Thomas examines Alby, who has various cuts and a bruise on his forehead]
Thomas: What happened to him?
Minho: What does it look like? He got stung.
Thomas: What happened to his head?
Minho: I did what I had to do.
[An unearthly screech echoes through the Maze; Minho gets up and starts moving away.]
Thomas: Alright, help me get him up.
Minho: We gotta go. The Maze is already changing.
Thomas: Hey, Minho! [Minho looks back at him] We can't just leave him here.
[Later, as Minho and Thomas are dragging Alby through the Maze, another eerie screech is heard in the distance. Minho puts Alby down against a wall and goes to leave]
Minho: This ain't working. We gotta go. We gotta go!
Thomas: Wait, wait, what're you talking about? We gotta do something, we gotta hide him!
Minho: Where?
Thomas: I don't know– Minho, just think. Are you telling me there's not a single place we can take him?
Minho: [Growls angrily and grabs Thomas his shirt] Listen to me, shuck-face. Alright? Take a look around! There's nowhere to go! [There are more screeches and wails in the distance; Minho stands and looks towards the noises] You don't get it. We're already dead.

[In the Council Hall, the Gladers are holding a meeting]
Gally: Things are changing. There's no denying that. First Ben gets stung in broad daylight, and then Alby. And now our Greenie here has taken it upon himself to go into the Maze. Which is a clear violation of our rules here.
Frypan: Yeah, but he saved Alby's life.
Gally: Did he? [Holds three fingers up] For three years, we have coexisted with these things. [Turns to Thomas and points at him] And now you've killed one of them. Who knows what that could mean for us.
Newt: Well, what do you suggest we do?
Gally: He has to be punished.
[The Gladers start protesting]
Newt: Minho, you were there with him. What do you think?
Minho: I think, in all the time we've been here, no one's ever killed a Griever before. When I turned tail and ran, this dumb Shank stood behind to help Alby. Look, I don't know if he's brave or stupid, but whatever it is, we need more of it. I say we make him a Runner.
[The Gladers continue protesting]
Chuck: [Starts chanting] Thomas! Thomas! Thomas! Thomas!
Gally: Look, if you wanna throw the newbie a parade, that's fine. Go ahead. But if there is one thing I know about the Maze, it is that you do not–
[The Gladers hear an alarm coming from the Box and run out of the Council Hall and towards the Box]

[The Gladers run out of the Council Hall and towards the Box, Newt and Gally run to the Box and open the doors, Newt jumps down to the Box, the Gladers gather around the Box]
Frypan: Newt, what do you see?
[The Gladers discover Teresa in the Box]
Newt: [Discovers Teresa in the Box] It's a girl.
[Thomas approaches the Gladers and sees Teresa in the Box]
Newt: I think she's dead.
Gally: What's in her hand?
[Newt takes a note from Teresa's hand, unfolds it, and reads it]
Newt: "She's the last one ever." What the hell does that mean?
Teresa: [Wakes up and sees Thomas] Thomas. [Falls asleep]
[Thomas looks at the Gladers and then looks at Gally]
Gally: Do you still think I'm overreacting?
[Thomas looks down at Teresa, who is lying asleep in the Box]

[In the Council Hall, Newt is looking at a cylinder that Thomas, Minho, Frypan, Winston, and Zart have pulled off a Griever]
Thomas: Yeah, we found this. It was inside a Griever.
Newt: These are the same letters we get on our supplies.
Thomas: Yeah, whoever put us here obviously made the Grievers. Now this is the first real clue, the first anything, you've found in over three years. Right, Minho?
Minho: Right.
Thomas: Newt, we gotta go back out there. Who knows where this might lead us.
[Newt turns to Gally]
Gally: You see what he is trying to do, right? First he breaks our rules and then he tries to convince us to abandon them totally. The rules are the only thing that have ever held us together. Why now are we questioning that? If Alby was here, you know he'd agree with me. This Shank needs to be punished.
[Newt looks at Thomas and gives the cylinder to Minho, Minho takes it]
Newt: You're right. Thomas broke the rules. One night in the Pit and no food.
Gally: Oh, come on, Newt! One night in the Pit? You think that's gonna stop him from going into the Maze?
Newt: No. And we can't just have non-Runners running into the Maze whenever they feel like it, so let's just make this official. Starting from tomorrow, you're a Runner.
Gally: Wow. [Starts to leave]
Frypan: [Tries to stop Gally from leaving] Gally.
Gally: [Pushes Frypan's hand away from him] No, Fry.
[Gally walks out of the Council Hall, with Minho, Frypan, Winston, and Zart following him, Thomas turns to Newt]
Thomas: Thanks, Newt.

[Thomas, Minho, Jeff, and Clint run out of the Map Room and to Chuck]
Thomas: Chuck, what's going on?
Chuck: Girls are awesome. [Points up to Teresa, who is on the top of the tower, throwing rocks at the Gladers]
Gally: Hey! Throw one more of those things– [Teresa throws a rock at his head]
Teresa: Go away!
[Thomas approaches the Gladers]
Thomas: What happened?
Newt: I don't think she likes us very much.
Teresa: What do you want from me?
Thomas: Hey, look, we just wanna talk.
Teresa: I'm warning you! [Throws rocks at Thomas and the Gladers]
Thomas: Hey! Hey! Whoa! It's Thomas! It's Thomas!
[Teresa peeks down from the top of the tower, while Gally, holding his head, looks up at her, and Thomas gestures to her]
Thomas: Okay, I'm gonna come up, okay?
[Teresa retreats from the edge of the upper platform]
Thomas: Okay. Just me.
[Thomas and Gally share a look with each other before Thomas climbs up the tower, with Gally watching him]
Thomas: I'm coming up.
[Thomas emerges through a hatch at the top of the tower and finds Teresa wielding a machete]
Thomas: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. [Raises his hand] Okay, just– Easy, alright?
Teresa: Where am I? What is this place? Why can't I remember anything?
Thomas: This– This is all normal, okay? We've– We've all been through this, okay? And your name, that'll come back to you in a couple of days. It's like the one thing that's–
Teresa: Teresa.
Thomas: What'd you say?
Teresa: My name. It's Teresa.
Thomas: Alright, Teresa, I'm Thomas. But you already knew that, though, I guess, huh?
Teresa: They said I kept saying your name in my sleep. Who are you?
Thomas: I don't know. I– I can't remember, okay? None of us– None of us here can remember anything. We all woke up here, just like you did. Hey, I promise. I'm gonna take this. [Takes the machete from Teresa] Okay.
Gally: What's going on up there?
[Thomas gets up and looks over a railing and sees the Gladers looking up at the top of the tower]
Newt: Is she coming down?
[Thomas and Teresa, who sits with her knees to her chest, share a look with each other, then Thomas turns to the Gladers]
Thomas: Hey, listen, you guys just give us a second, okay?
Newt: [Motions for the Gladers to leave] Alright, come on.
Frypan: Is this what all girls are like?
[Minho and Chuck share a look with each other, Gally looks up at the top of the tower before walking away with the Gladers, Thomas and Teresa sit at the edge of the upper platform]
Teresa: "She's the last one." What does that mean?
Thomas: I'm not sure. Ever since you came up, that Box hasn't gone back down. You know, and I just think it's got everyone a little worried. Especially Gally.
[Thomas and Teresa look down and see Gally, with his arms crossed, looking up at the top of the tower]
Teresa: He thinks it's my fault.
Thomas: Are you sure you don't remember anything else?
Teresa: I remember water, feeling like I was drowning. These faces staring at me. And this voice, this woman's voice saying the same thing over and over.
Thomas: "WCKD is good." Ever since I've been here, I've had these dreams. Well, I thought they were dreams. You– You were there. You were there, and you told me that everything was gonna change.
Teresa: What does it mean?
Thomas: I don't know. I– I just always get pieces.
Teresa: And the others don't remember anything?
Thomas: No. Why are we different?
Teresa: [Takes two vials of serum out of her pocket] These were in my pocket when I came up. [Give the two vials of serum to Thomas]
Thomas: [Takes the two vials of serum from Teresa and examines them] "W.C.K.D." "WCKD is good."
Teresa: What if we were sent here for a reason?
Thomas: [Remembers something] Alby.

[In the medical hut, Alby is lying on a bed writhing in pain from being stung by a Griever]
Newt: We don't even know what this stuff is. We don't know who sent it, or why it came up here with you. I mean, for all we know, this thing could kill him.
Thomas: He's already dying. Look at him. How could this possibly make it any worse? Come on, it's worth a try.
[Thomas, Teresa, and Newt look at Alby, who is writhing in pain]
Newt: Alright. [Gives the vial of serum to Thomas] Do it.
[Thomas takes the vial of serum from Newt, approaches Alby, and gets ready to inject the vial of serum into his chest]
Thomas: [Turns to look at Teresa, Newt, Jeff, and Clint] Okay.
Alby: [Grabs Thomas and start violently attacking him] You shouldn't be here! You shouldn't be here! NO!
[Newt, Jeff, and Clint try to restrain Alby]
Thomas: Get the syringe!
[Teresa grabs the vial of serum and stabs it into Alby's chest and he calms down]
Jeff: Well, that worked.
Newt: Okay, from now on, someone stays here and watches him around the clock.
[Teresa looks at Newt and then looks at Alby]
Gally: [Walks into the hut] Hey. [Thomas, Teresa, Newt, Jeff, and Clint turn to him] Sundown, Greenie. Time to go.
[Thomas looks at Teresa, Newt, Jeff, and Clint before walking out of the hut, with Gally following him, while Teresa, Newt, Jeff, and Clint watch Alby sleep]

[Thomas and Gally are walking to the Pit, a set of separate holes dug in the ground and covered by a wood shelter and bamboo cage doors]
Thomas: Hey, what is your problem with me?
Gally: Everything started going wrong the minute you showed up. First Ben, then Alby, and now the girl.
[Thomas and Gally arrive at the Pit]
Gally: Everybody saw she recognized you. And I'm betting you know who she is.
[Thomas and Gally share a look with each other before Gally opens the door of the Pit, Thomas goes into the Pit and Gally closes the door of the Pit and crouches down to fasten the ropes that "lock" the Pit shut]
Thomas: Gally, you know we can't stay here forever, right?
[Thomas and Gally share a look with each other before Gally gets up, picks his torch up, and walks away, with Thomas watching him from the door of the Pit, Later, a torchlight comes into view as someone approaches the Pit]
Thomas: Who's there?
Chuck: It's just me.
Thomas: Sorry, Chuck.
Chuck: [Handing a water bottle and food down] Here. You'll run better on a full stomach.
Thomas: Thanks, Chuck. [Noticing the object in Chuck's hand] Hey, what do you got there? [Chuck shows it to Thomas; it's a small carved stone figure] Oh, that came out pretty damn good. What's that from?
Chuck: It's from my parents.
Thomas: Do you remember your parents?
Chuck: No. well, I mean, I know I must have them. And wherever they are, I'm sure they miss me. But I can't miss them back because I don't remember them. [Looks out towards the walls of the Maze] What do you think you're gonna find out there tomorrow?
Thomas: I don't know. But if there's a way out, Chuck, me and Minho are gonna find it.
Chuck: Here. [Hands Thomas his figurine]
Thomas: Chuck, why would you give this to me?
Chuck: Can't remember them anyway. But maybe if you can find a way out you can give it to them for me. [Gets up to leave] Well, get you some sleep.
Thomas: Hey, Chuck? Come here. [Chuck comes back] Hold out your hand. [Chuck does; Thomas presses the figurine back into his hand] I want you to give that to them yourself. We're gonna get out of here. All of us. Okay? I promise.

[Thomas and Minho return to the Glade where the Gladers are waiting for them]
Newt: What the hell is going on out there?
Gally: What the hell you done now, Thomas?
[Thomas and the Gladers start walking]
Thomas: We found something. A new passage. We think it could be a way out.
Newt: Really?
Minho: It's true. We opened a door. Something I've never seen before. I think it must be where the Grievers go during the day.
Chuck: [Approaches Thomas and Minho] Wait, whoa, whoa, whoa! Are you saying you found the Grievers' home, and you want us to go in?
Thomas: Their way in could be our way out, Chuck.
Gally: Yeah, or there could be a dozen Grievers on the other side. The truth is, Thomas doesn't know what he's done, as usual.
Thomas: [Turns around and faces Gally] Yeah, well, at least I did something, Gally. I mean, what have you done? Huh? Aside from hide behind these walls all the time?
Gally: Let me tell you something, Greenie. You've been here three days, alright? I've been here three years.
Thomas: Yeah, you've been here three years, and you're still here, Gally! Alright, so what does that tell you? Maybe you should start doing things a little differently.
Gally: Maybe you should be in charge, Thomas. What about that? Maybe you should be in charge.
[While Thomas and Gally are arguing, Teresa calls out to them and the Gladers, causing them to turn to her]

[Alby just sits saying nothing]
Thomas: [Approaches Alby] Hey, Alby.
[Teresa and Minho watch Thomas and Alby]
Thomas: Alby, we might have just found a way out of the Maze. You hear me? We could be getting out of here.
Alby: [Cries and shakes his head] We can't. We can't leave. They won't let us.
Thomas: What are you talking about?
Alby: I remember.
[Gally watches Thomas and Alby]
Thomas: What do you remember?
Alby: [Turns to Thomas] You.
[Teresa, Newt, Minho, Gally, and Frypan look at Thomas]
Thomas: You were always their favorite, Thomas. Always.
[Teresa and Gally hear the Gladers outside the medical hut]

Chuck: Okay.
Newt: [To Winston] Winston, you go with him.
Winston: Got it. [Pats Gally on his shoulder and runs off]
Gally: [To a group of Gladers] Get the others. Tell them to go to the forest. Go hide, now!

Newt: One of who?!
Gally: He's one of them, and they sent him here, to destroy everything, AND NOW HE HAS! Look around, Thomas! Look around! This is your fault! He's one of them, and they sent him here to destroy everything that we've built!

Jeff: Yeah, what if Thomas is right? Maybe he can lead us home.
Gally: [Steps towards Winston and Jeff] We are home, okay? I don't want to have to cross anymore names off that wall.
Teresa: [While being held by a Glader] You really think banishing us is going to solve anything?
Gally: No, but this isn't a banishing, it's an offering.
[A Glader pulls Teresa to a pole and starts tying her arms]
Teresa: What? Wait! Gally, what are you doing?
Gally: You really think I'm gonna let Thomas back into the Maze after what he's done? Look around you! Look at our Glade!
[Newt and Minho look at each other, Chuck is wearing bags and holding a spear]
Gally: This is the only way. And when the Grievers get what they came here for, everything goes back to the way it was.
Teresa: Are you listening to this? Why are you all just standing there? He's crazy!
Gally: You shut up.
Teresa: If you stay here, the Grievers are going to come back. They're gonna come back, and they're gonna keep coming back until you're all dead!

Gally: [To some of the Gladers] Don't listen to him, he's just trying to scare you, alright?
Thomas: No, I'm not trying to scare you, you're already scared. [Gally turns to him] Alright, I'm scared. But I'd rather risk my life out there than spending the rest of it in here. We don't belong here. Okay, this place isn't our home. We were put here, okay? We were trapped here. At least out there, we have a choice. We can make it outta here. I know that.
