Give the Future a Second Chance

Mr Apple, worried: “Are you sure about this? Destroying our future? Do you think this is such a good idea?”

Mr Edward: “No, it’s the worst idea anybody’s ever had, isn’t it? But fuck the future — look how it’s turned out! We might as well try and fix things. It couldn’t possibly turn out worse.”

“Unless Lincoln decides to turn into Hitler in his second term. Or we blow up the whole universe! We don’t know how this works, do we!”

“We’re about to find out,” whispers Mr Edward as he switches the guns. “You’re welcome, Mr President. Ha.”

“Funny how people always want to go back in time and kill Booth and Hitler and whoever as children,” muses Mr Apple. “Why murder a child when you can just go back and give Booth a fake gun!”
