FORBES: Our satellites have done a sweep of the planet. There’s no trace of his energy signature anywhere. Really? Miss Jupiter, did you and Dr. Manhattan have a fight today? None of your business. It is when you’re on government payroll and you’re not doing yourjob. That’s as close to the word “whore” as you’re gonna get with me, Agent Forbes. Smoke? My apologies, Miss Jupiter. You know how important Dr. Manhattan is to our national security. You can imagine our concern. I can only imagine. EDDIE: Ain’t nothing gonna matter once those nukes start flying. We’ll all be dust. Then Ozymandias here . .will be the smartest man on the cinder. EDDIE: Laurel? Laurel Jane? You’re Sally Jupiter’s kid. You’re the Comedian, right? You were pretty cool in there. You know, your mom, she was one of the all-time champion beauties. You got her eyes, you know. You even have that same funny little mole. Take your hands off her. Hey, doll. Long time no see. Not long enough in my book, Eddie. Get in the car. Are there no depths you won’t sink to? Jesus Christ, Sally. Can’t a guy talk to his . .you know, old friend’s daughter? I mean, what the hell do you think I am? MAN: We found him! -We found him. FORBES: Where is he? Mars. Mr. President . .the Soviets have moved their tanks just short of the Afghan border. They are testing us . .to see if we manufactured Dr. Manhattan’s disappearance . .tO coax a move out of them. GENERAL : If they realize it’s not a hoax, they’ll probably start with air strikes. If they do, they’ll have Afghanistan under control in a matter of days. A watchdog group of nuclear scientists has moved the Doomsday Clock . .to two minutes until midnight. NIXON: Get this off the screen. Who are these assholes to say when doomsday approaches? I say when doomsday is approaching. Now, then. Czechoslovakia, Poland and East Germany have mobilized their forces. But no movement yet. They’re playing a wait-and-see. Letting the Russians take the lead. Bold moves, Henry. That’s what’s needed right now. We can’t let these ers think we’re weak. Yes. They must fear the madman Richard Nixon. How soon can we be ready for a preemptive strike? Two days. We have a percent chance of wiping out the entire U.S.S.R . .before they get their missiles airborne. What would our losses be? Assuming conservative projections . .of how many Soviet warheads are destroyed beforehand . .we’ll lose all of the East Coast. The last gasp . .Of the Harvard establishment. Let’s see them think their way out of fission. With anticipated wind patterns, the fallout drift would head south. Mexico would catch the worst of it. Most of the farm belt might remain unaffected. Not so bad . .all things considered. GENERAL : Mr. President . .what would you like to do? Take us to DEFCON two. Begin fueling the bombers. Dr. Manhattan has two days. After that . .humanity is in the hands of a higher authority than mine. Let’s just hope he’s on our side. FORBES: There must be a way to reach him. LAURIE: Excuse me. FORBES: Radio transmission, space shuttles– LAURIE: Excuse me. FORBES: What? LAURIE: I need to use the restroom. [BOTH GRUNTING] Don’t you understand? The only thing that can bring Jon back is Jon. If he wants to find me, he will. I’ve been a prisoner in my life long enough. MAN: Without Dr. Manhattan around . .to bully the Russians into peace, Mr. Veidt . .people are going to need good, old-fashioned energy to rely on. You can understand. The world can’tjust quit on oil and nuclear power cold turkey. You’ll dismantle our entire economy overnight. You’re right, Lee. And why free energy? Well, “free” is just another word for “socialist.” We might have to make a public inquiry . .into any past communist affiliations you might have had. ADRIAN: Mr. lacocca, gentlemen . .I respect your position . .and what you’ve accomplished as captains of industry. I do. You wanna know my past? Hm? Okay. Happily. It’s a matter of public record that by , both my parents were dead . .leaving me alone. I guess you could say I’ve always been alone. They say I’m the smartest man in the world, but the truth is I’ve often felt
