Just one more thing...

So, this is a transcription of the spoken dialogue and audio. You'll also notice a time-code reference. As a result, this version may not be exactly as written in the original script. But, the intellectual property is still reserved by the original source and may be subject to copyright. 8FLiX provides all of this to you without cost for your entertainment, convenience, and study.

And you know what else? Because we understand that there are about 6 billion people who do not speak English, we've added something special. Some of our complete series scripts are also available in other languages. For example, Français, Español, Deutsche and Italiano versions may also be at hand! If not, just ask us for it!
