A Family Affair is the two-hundred seventieth video in the lonelygirl15 video series. It is also the fourteenth video of season two.


Jonas: (Jonas is filming himself in his truck.) Look, I've been-I've been angry lately. When I get angry, I do stupid things. Like, really stupid things. I still can't believe those fuckers came to my house and taped me yesterday. (Cuts to filming a semi in the reflection of his side mirror.) Ever since I saw the video, I just can't -- I can't sleep, I can't focus on anything else, and I --- I started thinking about the way my life was, you know, the way it used to be. A long time ago. (Cuts to blurred shots out car window.) Before all of this. Don't get me wrong, I do not trust these Resistance people. Not at all. (Cuts back to Jonas in the vehicle.) But, I figure if they can find my parents, then-- (Cuts to shot of the outside of The Whartons' house.) What's the harm in me coming to talk to them, right? Oh, um, oh, also, I just really want to thank everyone out there from the bottom of my heart for helping me crack that -- that code from the Resistance video. I wouldn't be here without you. So, thank you.

Jonas: (The front of Jonas's parent's house is seen.) Woo. Ok! Ahem. Ok. Ok. I can do this. Woo. Here we go. (Jonas enters through the gate.) I can do this. Just gimme a minute. Fuck it. (Rings doorbell.) Ok, there's no going back now. Woo. Oh, man. Maybe they're not -- (Door opens.) Hi, dad. It's me, it's Jonas.

Mrs. Wharton: Sweetie, who's there?

Raymond Wharton: I think he has the wrong address.

Jonas: Mom...

Mrs. Wharton: Is there -- Can we help you with something?

Raymond: Just call the police.

Mrs. Wharton: Uh, can we help you?

Jonas: They don't remember me. (Cuts to Jonas inside their house. His parents are whispering to each other behind him.) Nothing. Uh -- Least they ... They invited me in. But, you know what? Here's the weird thing: my mom has this picture of me from when I was a kid. I know that she knows who I am somewhere, somewhere deep down. I know she knows who I am. Even if she doesn't remember exactly. I can just -- I can just feel it. (Looks behind at his parents who are hugging each other.) Ha. Ha. This is -- This is amazing.

Mrs. Wharton: Jonas?

Jonas: Yeah?

Mrs. Wharton: There's someone I'd like you to meet.

Jonas: Uh, okay.

Mrs. Wharton: Come on. (She leads him to a room with music blasting from the inside. She knocks.) Em? Emma? Can I come in?

Jonas: It's okay.

Mrs. Wharton: Can -- Can you just wait here a minute?

Jonas: Yeah, yeah.

Mrs. Wharton: Just one moment.

Jonas: Sure.

Mrs. Wharton: I'll be right back.

Jonas: I'll be here.

Mrs. Wharton: Ha, ha. OK.

(She enters the room. Jonas takes a glance at the camera. The door opens once more.)

Jonas: Hey.

Mrs. Wharton: You can come in now.

Jonas: Really?

Mrs. Wharton: Yeah. She's waiting.

Jonas: Thank you.

Mrs. Wharton: You're welcome.

Jonas: (laughs) Hi.

Jonas: Hi. I'm -- I'm Jonas.

Emma: I'm Emma.

Jonas: Emma, nice to meet you.

Emma: Nice to meet you.

Jonas: So ... What?

Emma: (Points to camera.) Well, why do you have a camera?

Jonas: It's a long story. Um, I'll tell you later.

Emma: Ok. (They both laugh.) Um, this is really weird for me. Um, oh my God. I have a brother. Who's holding a camera.

Jonas: I know! Well, yeah, I know. It's weird. And... I can put it -- I can put it down, if it makes you more feel more comfortable. I don't hafta. 'Cause I just kinda...

Emma: No! Actually I think it's actually kinda cool.

Jonas: Really?

Emma: Yeah, I do.

Jonas: Oh, me and you are going to get along.

Emma: Really? Why do you have that with you all the time?

Jonas: Kinda. yeah. It's like ... I'm going to put the camera down. I think it's ...

Emma: O --

Jonas: I'm going to put it down.

Emma: Ok.

(The scene changes from Emma's room to her living room. They are playing charades.)

Jonas: So, star! Star!

Emma: Ok.

Jonas: What's it -- Star second? Number two? Star dancer? (Emma makes plane sounds.) Star planes! Star plane, right?

Emma:No! (She makes gun sounds.)

Mrs. Wharton: Star guns.

Jonas: Star guns. Star guns. (They all laugh.)

Emma: No!

Jonas: Star wars! Star wars!

Emma: Yes! (They all laugh. Mother and Jonas high Five.)

Jonas: Yes!

Emma: Woo!

Jonas: That was -- That was great.

Mrs. Wharton: Yes. That was great.

Emma: Ok! Um...

Mother: Aw, I'm sorry, Emma. It's time for bed. (Emma sighs. Mother laughs and Jonas groans.)

Emma: Right.

Jonas: Well, it was really, really great meeting you. And I had a lot of fun.

Emma: I had a lot of fun with you too.

Jonas: Can I get a high five?

Emma: Aw, come here. (They hug.) Okay.

Jonas: Thanks.

Emma: Thanks.

Jonas: Bye.

Emma: Bye.

Mrs. Wharton: Bye, honey. Good night, sweetie.

Emma: Good night. Love you.

Mrs. Wharton: Sleep tight.

Emma: Ok. Bye. Good night.

Jonas: Good night, Emma.

Mrs. Wharton: Oh, I forgot to tell you: On Fridays we have guests coming over. It's just something that we do. You're welcome to stay.

Jonas: Really? Can I?

Mrs. Wharton: Yeah, I'd really like it if you stayed.

Jonas: I would love to stay.

Mrs. Wharton: Good. (There's a knock at the door and the bell rings.)

Jonas: Ah.

Mrs. Wharton: Oh, yeah! That's -- I'll -- I'll be right back.

Jonas: Okay, I'm going to go -- I'm going to go get ready.

Mrs. Wharton: Okay.

Jonas: What should I wear?

Mrs. Wharton: Exactly what you have on is perfect.

Jonas: (They laugh.) Okay. Perfect.

(Jonas walks over to the table and sees candles arranged in an orderly fashion.)

Mrs. Wharton: Hey! Come on in. I'd like you to meet someone. Jonas! These are our friends, Carl and Sonia.

Jonas: Oh my God. This is a joke.

Sonia: Hi, Jonas.

Jonas: Mom! This isn't happening! No! This is not happening! This is not happening.

Mrs. Wharton: Jonas, what's the matter?

Jonas: This is not happening, this is not happening, this is not happening.

Mrs. Wharton: Jonas, please.

Jonas: Trust me, you gotta believe me that these people are not who they say they are. Listen to me! Listen to me!

Mrs. Wharton: Jonas! It's about --

Jonas: I know! No! No! No, I know that you just met me and it's confusing everything. But I know these people. I know them! You gotta believe me.

Mrs. Wharton: The religion of the Hymn of One is -- is about peace and love. Come sing with us. (Jonas stares at her before getting up and walking towards the camera.) Jonas!

Jonas: I can't do this. I can't do this.

Mrs. Wharton: Jonas! Wait.

(The scene changes to Jonas filming from above the stairs and his parents, Sonia, Carl and Barb, a speaker from the Hymn of One seminar, sit around the table holding hands. The Hymn of One melody plays.)

Raymond: Each of us holds a part in the universal song within us. Let us gather hands and reach out and sing out.

Mrs. Wharton: We gather our hands and sing out.

Barb: We gather our hands and sing out.

Sonia: We gather our hands and we sing out.

Carl: We gather our hands and ---

(Jonas makes a creaking sound with his camera. All eyes turn to him from below.)

Carl: Jonas! Gather our hands and sing out.

Mrs. Wharton: Jonas!

Jonas: This is not happening!

All: Jonas, gather our hands and sing out.

(The camera zooms closer to the floor and the scene becomes black. The Hymn of One music fades out.)
