I don't know if it'll work

but we have to try

something, okay?

Yeah. Yeah, okay, let's go.

'On three.'

one, two, three!


We had to try.

I needed to see how solid it is.

Solid? It's made

of freakin' fiberglass.

Listen, we need to figure out

our options here.

Are you serious?

You're going to treat this like

one of your corporate projects?

Do I get a review after?

Can I be the team leader?

What would you rather do?

Scream your head off some more?

Fine. What now?

We need to check

all the seals and edges.

Maybe there's a weak spot


- Yeah?

- Yeah, okay. Let's do it.

Yuck, gross.

'Hey, I found something.'

it's a hole.

It's thick. We need something

to push through,

so we can widen it.

Oh, yeah, oh, yeah,

okay, I'll just go

and grab my tool belt.

Get out of the way.

'Piece of shit!'

'come on! Ugh!'

real productive.

Why is there a hole, anyway?

A peephole?

Condensation hole or air duct,

I don't know.

Or maybe so people

don't get stuck?


Like I said, we need something.

I can't believe

this is happening.

Hey, just keep looking. Come on.


No use.

Just let me rest.

Think for a sec.

What do you think the worst way

to die would be?

'Quit being morbid.'


- Drowning?

- Stop.


Probably being eaten alive

by sharks.

I mean, that's all

we're missing, right?

- David.

- What about him?

He proposed.

I was gonna tell you.

He'll figure this out.

He'll call the police

when he notices I'm gone.

It's been more

than an hour, Bree.

We just have to wait.

Right. Okay, yeah, alright.

I mean, let's just, uh

kick back and relax

and, uh, and wait

for your knight

in shining armor to ride in

on his, on his white horse

and rescue us.

What is wrong with you?

Nothing. Nothing at all.
