But we're not the flea, we're the acrobat.
In this metaphor, yes, we're the acrobat.
So we can't go upside down?
- No. - Well, is there any way
for the acrobat to get to the Upside Down?
Well... you'd have to create a massive amount of energy.
More than humans are currently capable of creating, mind you,
to open up some kind of tear in time and space.
you create a doorway.
- Like a Gate? - Sure. Like a Gate.
-再强调一次 这些都是 -理论上
- But again, this is all... - Theoretical.
But -- but what if this Gate already existed?
Well, if it did, I-I think we'd know.
It would disrupt gravity,
the magnetic field, our environment.
Heck, it might even swallow us up whole.
Science is neat.
But I'm afraid it's not very forgiving.
- Jesus, Chief. You all right? - What are you doing here?
We tried calling, but...
Yeah, the phone's dead.
Hey, so Bev Mooney came in this morning all upset.
Said that Dale and Henry went hunting yesterday...
and they didn't come back home.
She thought they were on another binger,
but she's not so sure now.
I think this whole Will Byers thing has everybody on edge.
- Where was this? - It was at the station.
No, no. Where did Henry and Dale go hunting?
Oh. Uh, out near Kerley.
You go back to the station. I'll take care of this, all right?
- Are you sure? - Yeah, leave it.
Oh, hey. Uh, they found Barbara's car.
Barbara Holland's car.
Seems she ran away after all.
Staties found it late last night at a bus station.
Funny, right? They keep doing our job for us.
Yeah. It's funny.
Is he off his meds again?
He's been spending too much time with Joyce Byers.
That's what I think.
What are you doing?
What does it look like I'm doing?
You want to freeze to death all winter?
I told you not to take these down.
They were in the way, babe.
How long are you gonna keep those up? I mean, really?
You know, it's a shame what they've done to this family.
- What? - The Sattler Company.
I went to the quarry on the way over here.
I just wanted to look around, you know?
Couldn't believe it. I just couldn't believe it.
No warning signs,
no fence, no nothing.
Ought to be held accountable if you ask me.
It would take a lot of energy to build a gate like this.
But that's got to be what happened.
Otherwise, how'd Will get there, right?
What we want to know is, do you know where the gate is?
Then how do you know about the Upside Down?
Dustin, what are you doing? Dustin?
- Dustin! - Dustin!
- I-I need to see your compasses. - What?
你们的指南针 所有人的 快
Your compasses. All of your compasses, right now!
What's exciting about this?
- Well, they're all facing north, right? - Yeah, so?
- Well, that's not true north. - What do you mean?
I mean exactly what I just said. That's not true north.
Are you both seriously this dense?
The sun rises in the east, and it sets in the west. Right?
Which means that's true north.
So what you're saying is the compasses are broken.
Do you even understand how a compass works?
- Do you see a battery pack on this? - No.
No, you don't. Because it doesn't need one.
The needle's naturally drawn to the Earth's magnetic North Pole.
So what's wrong with them?
Well, that's what I couldn't figure out,
but then I remembered.
You can change the direction of a compass with a magnet.
If there's the presence of a more powerful magnetic field,
the needle deflects to that power.
And then I remembered what Mr. Clarke said.
The Gate would have so much power--
It could disrupt the electromagnetic field.
Meaning, if we follow the compasses' north...
They should lead us to the Gate.
- What are you doing here? - What are you doing?
- Nothing. - I hope that's not meant for me.
Oh, no, I was just...
thinking about joining softball.
Well, uh... listen, I'm really sorry.
I mean, even before you threatened me with the baseball bat.
I panicked and...
- I mean, I was a total dick. - Yeah, you were.
Did you get in trouble with your parents?
you know, who cares? Screw 'em.
Any news about Barbara?
-她父母有消息了吗 或者 -没有
- Parents heard from her? Or... - No.
Why don't we, uh, why don't we catch a movie tonight, you know?
Just kinda pretend everything's normal for a few hours.
All The Right Moves is still playing.
You know, with your lover boy from Risky Business?
Yeah, I know.
You know, Carol thinks I actually kinda look like him.
What do you think? Huh?
*Just take those old records off the shelf*
*I'll sit and listen to them by myself*
I just, I... I don't think I can.
I've been really busy with this whole funeral thing and...
with my brother.
It's been really hard on him.
Yeah, sure. Sure, yeah, yeah.
I should go.
I'll call you later. Is that okay?
