With Betty Lou here.

For the thousandth time, I was

practicing for my fireman's exam...

which started seven minutes ago,

so I'd appreciate ifyou let me go.

You and the blonde found the meteor?

Yeah, I found it.

It bounced my car 200 feet

in the air. Can I go?

Bob, get him out ofhere right now.

Don't leave town.

Sheriff, is this...

the point ofpenetration?

Yeah, it punched through

into a cavern 80 feet down.

That's a hole.

Oh, damn it!

Next time, you're carrying this case.

You're the U.S.G.S. representative.

That responsibility

comes with the badge.

Oh, my God! Look at that.

I believe we've located

the target.

- Big smile, fellas.

- Cheese!

Hold it up now.

All right?

It's hot! It's really hot.

I'll hold you up.

More nightstick.

Look at thesejackasses.

At ease, gentlemen.

The Feds are here.

Feds? What Feds?

- Who letyou down here?

- Let's not get combative, Lieutenant.

The U.S.G.S. and local law enforcement

have a long history ofcooperation.

We're here to get some scientific

samples, ifthat's okaywith you guys.

Ah, yeah, sure.

We got all the photographic evidence

we need. Carry on.


Keep up the good work.

Just hit last night

and it's got stuff growing on it.

Could be cave moss.

Cave moss afterjust a few hours?

That's peculiar.

Let's get a sample

and get out ofhere.

It's bleeding.

It's a rock that bleeds.

Now that's really peculiar.

Let's bag it.

I don't know ifthis geological society

gig is all it's cracked up to be.

Yeah, it pads out my resume,

but am I growing as a person?

Am I growing as a Division Three

women's volleyball coach?

Areyou gonna do those spectro tests

it says to do in the guidebook?

Spectrograph. Yeah, I will do

a full spectroscopic analysis.

Your resume will shine.
