TARS:
Cooper, they didn't bring us here to change the past.

Cooper:
Say that again.

TARS:
They didn't bring us here to change the past.

Cooper:
[realizing] But they didn't bring us here at all. We brought ourselves. TARS, give me the coordinates for NASA, in binary.

TARS:
In binary, roger, feeding data. [Cooper creates the binary lines in the dust on Murphy's bedroom floor]

Murph:
It's not a ghost... it's gravity.

Cooper:
Don't you get it yet, TARS? I brought myself here! We're here to communicate with the three-dimensional world! We're the bridge! I thought they chose me. But they didn't choose me, they chose her!

TARS:
For what, Cooper?

Cooper:
To save the world! All of this, is one little girl's bedroom, every moment! It's infinitely complex! They have access, to infinite time and space, but they're not *bound* by anything! They can't find a specific place *in* time, they can't communicate. That's why I'm here. I'm gonna find a way to tell Murph, just like I found this moment.

TARS:
How, Cooper?

Cooper:
Love, TARS, love. It's just like Brand said. My connection with Murph, it is quantifiable. It's the key!

TARS:
What are we here to do?

Cooper:
Find how to tell her... The watch... The watch. That's it. We code the data into the movement of the second hand. TARS, translate the data into Morse and feed it to me.

TARS:
Translating data to Morse. Cooper, what if she never came back for it?

Cooper:
She will. She will.

Getty:
[watching for Tom] Murph I can see his car! He's coming, Murph!

Murph:
Okay. I'm coming down!

TARS:
How do you know?

Cooper:
Because I gave it to her.

Murph:
[rushing downstairs with the watch] He came back! It was him! All this time, I didn't, I didn't know it was him! Dad's gonna save us!

Cooper:
[Cooper sits to watch the video messages left for him over the years] Cooper.

Computer:
Messages span twenty-three years.

Cooper:
Play from the beginning.

[message from Tom starts playing]

Young Tom:
Hey, Dad. Checkin' in, sayin' hi. Um... finished second in school, Miss Carlin's still giving me Cs though. Pulled me down, but second's not bad. Grandpa attended the ceremony. Um... oh, I met another girl, dad. I, uh... I really think this is the one. Her name is Lois. That's her right there.

[Tom holds up a photo of Lois, Cooper, overwhelmed with emotion, begins weeping]

Young Tom:
Murphy stole grandpa's car. She crashed it, she's okay though.

Tom:
[we see another message from Tom showing him as an adult] Hey, Dad. Look at this!

[Tom holds up his baby next to him]

Tom:
You're a grandpa. His name's Jesse. I kind of wanted to call him Coop, but, Lois says maybe next time.

Lois:
[to Jesse] Say bye-bye Grandpa. Bye-bye Grandpa.

Tom:
[Cooper continues to watch his messages, the next one shows Tom looking despondent] Sorry it's been a while. Just... what with Jesse and all. Uh... grandpa died last week. We buried him out in the back plot next to mom and... Jesse. Just where we would've buried you if you'd ever... come back. Murph was there at the funeral. We don't see her that much, but she came for that.

Tom:
[Tom hesitates] You're not listening to this, I know that. All these messages are just... drifting out there in the darkness. Lois says that, uh... I have to let you go. And, uh... so, I guess... I'm letting you go. I don't know where you are, Dad. But I hope that wherever you are you're at peace. Goodbye.

[Tom turns off the camera, Cooper touches the screen not wanting to let go when suddenly a message from a now adult Murph comes up]
