    ERNST & THE LIGHT
  • 1:02 - 1:03
    WHAT HAPPENED LAST NIGHT?
  • 1:03 - 1:04
    Connie here
  • 1:04 - 1:06
    Hi babe - Ernie calling.
  • 1:06 - 1:08
    Why haven't you called?
  • 1:08 - 1:09
    It's that bloody mobile phone.
  • 1:09 - 1:11
    It hasn't got the brains to function...
  • 1:11 - 1:14
    ... well, I don't care, I'll get a new one soon,
    I can't be bothered anymore.
  • 1:14 - 1:16
    How was your trip?
  • 1:16 - 1:17
    Oh, good, good --
  • 1:17 - 1:20
    It was Guten Tag, Auf Wiedersehen,
    and everything flew off the shelves!
  • 1:20 - 1:21
    Did you see the light last night?
  • 1:21 - 1:22
    It was incredibly...
  • 1:22 - 1:23
    No, but I read about it.
  • 1:23 - 1:28
    Why don't you start spreading your legs,
    and I'll be home in about an hour?
  • 1:41 - 1:44
    (Radio)... the entire globe was lit up for 14½ seconds last night...
  • 1:44 - 1:47
    experts from all over the world have gathered in Denmark today
  • 1:47 - 1:53
    Radio: to examine this high energy release, whose source has not yet been identified...
  • 1:53 - 1:57
    ... last night's global light phenomenon is being interpreted by the cult as a sign
  • 1:57 - 2:01
    of the return of Christ and denominations across the globe been shaken--
  • 2:01 - 2:06
    -- over 30.000 fanatics in the Philippines have been conducting mass-crucifictions throughout the day...
  • 2:39 - 2:40
    Damn it!
  • 2:42 - 2:43
    Can I hitch a ride?
  • 2:47 - 2:50
    Sure... I don't see a problem with that.
  • 2:55 - 2:57
    It's just... I don't think the car will start.
  • 2:58 - 2:59
    Try!
  • 3:05 - 3:06
    There you go.
  • 3:06 - 3:07
    Yep.
  • 3:11 - 3:13
    So where are you heading?
  • 3:13 - 3:15
    I have a long journey ahead of me.
  • 3:15 - 3:17
    Hell, don't we all!
  • 3:18 -
    There's something you need to understand, Ernst.
  • Not Synced
    You have been chosen.
  • Not Synced
    I have been what?
  • Not Synced
    You have been chosen.
  • Not Synced
    Chosen to follow me.
  • Not Synced
    This is the dawn of a new age!
  • Not Synced
    You are my first disciple.
  • Not Synced
    Hey, are you a member of a cult, or something?
  • Not Synced
    No, no -- I have returned.
  • Not Synced
    We have much to do.
  • Not Synced
    Hey, mitts off my phone!
  • Not Synced
    It's broken enough as it is.
  • Not Synced
    I think it is working again.
  • Not Synced
    How the hell did you do that?
  • Not Synced
    It hasn't been working the past three days!
  • Not Synced
    Imagine being the inventor of the telephone.
  • Not Synced
    No, that was Graham Bell.
  • Not Synced
    Yes, well, that's beside the point.
  • Not Synced
    The man must have felt like an idiot.
  • Not Synced
    Didn't it strike you as odd that I just fixed it like that?
  • Not Synced
    Yes, but imagine inventing the phone, right?
  • Not Synced
    Sure, sure, you have a telephone --
  • Not Synced
    but you're sitting there with your very own phone
  • Not Synced
    and you must feel like a right idiot!
  • Not Synced
    Do you know what I mean?
  • Not Synced
    There's no one to call, because you're the only one in the world with a telephone!
  • Not Synced
    Didn't it strike you as odd that you passed me twice on the road back there?
  • Not Synced
    Nope.
  • Not Synced
    But didn't it strike you as rather strange
    that you were able to pass me twice,
  • Not Synced
    and that your car suddenly went dead,
    and that I know your name, and isn't it
  • Not Synced
    also strange that I know your name and that
    I can make things work just by touching them?
  • Not Synced
    Nope.
  • Not Synced
    People do the most remarkable things to get a ride.
  • Not Synced
    Are you normal, Ernst?
  • Not Synced
    Am I normal!
  • Not Synced
    You are asking me whether I am normal?
  • Not Synced
    Hell, you are the one who has obviously
    just escaped from some mental institution!
  • Not Synced
    I don't understand.
  • Not Synced
    Things aren't exactly right with you, are they?
  • Not Synced
    Look at your clothes.
  • Not Synced
    You are out hitching a ride at two in the morning.
  • Not Synced
    I am the son of God. I have returned!
  • Not Synced
    And you have been chosen to be my disciple!
  • Not Synced
    See what I'm saying?
  • Not Synced
    You don't look anything like Jesus.
  • Not Synced
    Not that that's something to crucify a man for.
  • Not Synced
    Crucify! Get it?
  • Not Synced
    I... am the Son of God, Ernst.
  • Not Synced
    Imagine if He had to pay alimony to everyone
    who has ever claimed to be His son!
  • Not Synced
    Then He wouldn't have any savings left for the holidays, now would He?
  • Not Synced
    You are Ernst Petersen, are you not=
  • Not Synced
    You are a cleaning supplies salesman, are you not?
  • Not Synced
    Yes.
  • Not Synced
    And there's nothing wrong with that!
  • Not Synced
    It may not sound as fancy as a degree in law or business economics, but it pays well, my friend!
  • Not Synced
    Do you not understand anything?
  • Not Synced
    The whole world is waiting for us.
  • Not Synced
    You have been chosen to be the first
    among the multitudes who will follow me!
  • Not Synced
    It has been decided.
  • Not Synced
    And who decided?
  • Not Synced
    The Lord did.
  • Not Synced
    We are on a mission.
  • Not Synced
    Piss off -- get out of my car!
  • Not Synced
    I refuse to listen to any more bullshit--
  • Not Synced
    I am tired, I want to go home;
    I want to get laid, watch tv and then off to bed.
  • Not Synced
    But Ernst...
  • Not Synced
    No more mission bullshit!
  • Not Synced
    No more talk of God and chosen ones.
  • Not Synced
    If you want a ride, you'll tell me where you're going
  • Not Synced
    and you will shut the hell up!
  • Not Synced
    Or you'll tell me about the latest match results,
  • Not Synced
    or something...
  • Not Synced
    Is there nothing I can do to make you believe in me?
  • Not Synced
    Get out!
  • Not Synced
    But I am the son of God!
  • Not Synced
    Jesus Christ.
  • Not Synced
    I wouldn't give to shits if you were Michael Laudrup's sister, you are getting out of my car right now!
  • Not Synced
    You can't go without me.
  • Not Synced
    How the hell do you do that?
  • Not Synced
    I am the son of God.
  • Not Synced
    Then make it start again.
  • Not Synced
    Should we go?
  • Not Synced
    I'll be damned...
  • Not Synced
    Okay.
  • Not Synced
    Let's say you are Jesus.
  • Not Synced
    Then what are you doing here?
  • Not Synced
    Humanity has been waiting for me for two thousand years.
  • Not Synced
    Now I am here at last.
  • Not Synced
    You might want to lower your expectations
    for your popularity, you know.
  • Not Synced
    Of course, you will be given some attention at first; there's the tabloids, the daily news...
  • Not Synced
    ... but the world has changed.
  • Not Synced
    It's your own fault, you know.
    Two thousand years is a long time!
  • Not Synced
    Hey, I'm a salesman -- you always have to follow up on an order within a week,
  • Not Synced
    --otherwise the client gets cold feet!
  • Not Synced
    If I had the habit of waiting two thousand years,
    I would still be driving a Fiat, know what I mean?
  • Not Synced
    Yes... maybe.
  • Not Synced
    The times are changing, you have to keep up.
  • Not Synced
    If only you'd said 'He'll be back in, say, 50 years'
  • Not Synced
    but now! Now it is too damned late.
  • Not Synced
    I wasn't my choice.
  • Not Synced
    Why did it have to take you this long?
  • Not Synced
    I'm not exactly sure...
  • Not Synced
    Was it that '2000' sounded cool?
  • Not Synced
    Or did you do it to increase the excitement?
  • Not Synced
    It was Father's idea.
  • Not Synced
    God?
  • Not Synced
    Yes.
  • Not Synced
    Isn't he rather bossy?
  • Not Synced
    I mean, have you never dreamed of
    doing something all on your own?
  • Not Synced
    Well, i just obey.
  • Not Synced
    That's not going to take you far!
  • Not Synced
    Why?
  • Not Synced
    Because people are fed up with that nonsense.
  • Not Synced
    Today you need to be independent and strong
  • Not Synced
    There are plenty of Japanese out there who can do everything better and cheaper and faster
  • Not Synced
    In this world, it's no good saying:
    "I'm doing it because my father told me to"
  • Not Synced
    No, you have to shout it: "Here I am, and I will kick
    everyone who doesn't take notice right in the crotch!"
  • Not Synced
    But I...
  • Not Synced
    No 'but's!
  • Not Synced
    You just have to face the fact that you failed.
  • Not Synced
    You're obsolete, the market's gone!
  • Not Synced
    Yes, pull yourself together and invest your know-how in something new, find out where you're needed.
  • Not Synced
    Hasn't anyone kept the faith alive?
  • Not Synced
    Doesn't anyone want salvation?
  • Not Synced
    Like hell they do.
  • Not Synced
    People want sex. And violence.
  • Not Synced
    And sex, and sex.
    And then cleaning supplies.
  • Not Synced
    Then what's the point of anything?
  • Not Synced
    The point? Ha!
  • Not Synced
    Have you ever been a salesman?
  • Not Synced
    No.
  • Not Synced
    Okay.
  • Not Synced
    I think you may have it in you.
  • Not Synced
    I think I could get you a job.
  • Not Synced
    No...
  • Not Synced
    If you don't become my disciple tonight
  • Not Synced
    and if we... if we don't...
  • Not Synced
    Then what?
  • Not Synced
    Then it all goes to hell, or what?
  • Not Synced
    Yes!
  • Not Synced
    I'm the saviour!
  • Not Synced
    You don't have to save anyone,
  • Not Synced
    you just need to think about yourself.
  • Not Synced
    But...
  • Not Synced
    if you don't join me tonight, I'll have to go back,
  • Not Synced
    don't you understand? I won't be able to come back for another two thousand years!
  • Not Synced
    You'll just have to stay here.
  • Not Synced
    I can't.
  • Not Synced
    Aren't you old enough by now to make your own decisions?
  • Not Synced
    What now?
  • Not Synced
    I will go back.
  • Not Synced
    You are a very, very sick and confused man,
    you know that?
  • Not Synced
    Goodbye, Ernst.
  • Not Synced
    Well, goodbye, then.
  • Not Synced
    It's Connie
  • Not Synced
    Hi babe.
  • Not Synced
    I'll be home in 20 minutes.
  • Not Synced
    Did you see it?
  • Not Synced
    I saw it again, the light!
  • Not Synced
    The television was...
  • Not Synced
    Yes, yes, I saw it.
  • Not Synced
    Wait until you hear this, you won't believe it:
  • Not Synced
    What?
  • Not Synced
    My mobile phone is working again!
