Is it really warm?

It's beautiful.


It's really hot.

I think that's why they

call it Twonset Hot Springs.

So, is this great

or what?

Sure beats the hell

out of L.A.

Yes, it does.

Maybe we should move here.

I don't think so.

I'd go nuts in a week.

It's nothing. Some animal

must have scared them.


What the hell was that?

Oh, my God!

So, everybody get out there, have a

great time, and enjoy this beautiful day.

Good job, Mom.

Where is your brother?

I don't know.

I know where.

Mayor Wando?

Harry Dalton with

the U.S. Geological Survey.

A wonderful speech, Rachel.

Excuse me, Mayor Wando,


I'm sorry, you are?

Harry Dalton.

From Portland.

Yes, your boss called

and said you were coming.

Elliot, can I call you later? Sure.

I should show you around.


Is this a good time?


Just have

to make a quick stop.

Sure, that's okay.

What are we doing here?

This'll only

take a second.

So, you have any kids?

No, I don't.

You're lucky.

Right, Mom?

No, honey. Sometimes having

kids is just wonderful.

And sometimes...


My brother, Graham,

he's in a lot of trouble.

Yes, I think he is.


You get in trouble?


Of course not.


I'm coming.

Get in the car.

You boys, go home.

You should know better.

See you, guys.

I don't know

what's wrong with you.

Can we do this

another time?

The mine is dangerous.

It's off-limits.


Hey, Rachel!


Hey, Jane.

I heard Mrs. Mackey

was sick.

You know,

just a touch of the flu.

And how are you?

Dr. Fox, this is Harry Dalton of

the United States Geological Survey.

Oh, hey.

How do you do?

Nice meeting you.

'Bye Jane.


Do you want to see it?

It looks like

black liquorice.

Can I see it?

You know what this is?
