Magic: Admiral Herbert Williams. I hope it’s okay, your CO gave me your home address.
Martinez: I’m in, sir.
Magic: In for what, son?
Magic: I don’t understand.
Martinez: Sir, an admiral just showed up at my doorstep unannounced in plain clothes with a real serious vibe. This is about some special ops or secret mission. You had me at hello. I’m in, sir.
Magic: Well. I appreciate that.
Martinez: Money is not my main motivation.
Jenn: Then what is?
Martinez: My parents came here from Mérida when I was nine. My brothers were six and seven. The risk we took just to get here. This country gave us stability, gave us safety, gave us a good living. I’m sorry, I still get emotional just thinking about it.
Jenn: That’s why you joined?
Martinez: Ma’am, I joined for the one thing America didn’t give me. Citizenship. I love this country. I wanna stay. I wanna vote. I wanna protect it from enemies, both foreign and domestic. So, there’s a mission that needs me, I’m in, sir. No questions asked. Just point me in the right direction.
My last moments with my mom were full of anger. I never got to tell her I was sorry or thank her for everything she did for me. But that night changed my life. No wonder I got obsessed with physics and time travel. No wonder I wanted to join this program. You can draw a straight line from that moment to this.Ben

Ian: Our lives are so insane.
Jenn: Yeah, I heard it.
