114 miles that way, North by Northeast.

You see this compass?

That's North by Northeast, okay?

And we also need to

keep track of our speed

and we need to watch our hours.

So it's 1900 right now,

and we're here, okay?

At 2000, we work out

distance equals speed over time.

You understand that?

- Yes, sir.

- Okay.

That's how we calculate our position,

and that's how...

That's how we find him.

And that's navigating, all right?

We watch our compass,

we keep track of our speed,

and we watch our time or we'll get lost.

If we get lost, we run out of water.

We run out of water, we die.

How do we know our speed?

This thing does 25 miles an hour.

- Is that fast?

- Yeah, it's pretty fast.

Is a mile longer or shorter

than a kilometer?


You gotta be fucking kidding me.

Jesus Christ!


You should try and

get some sleep, all right?

We'll stop just before sun-up.

(ELEANOR) Yes, sir.



Oh my God, Cove.





Oh! Ouch!


You're drunk!

Maybe a little.

[SIGHS] I though we were under attack.

I thought you were shot.

What is wrong with you?

Oh, come on!

You frightened the life out of me!




It's just a little desert trap shooting.

Oh, that's just bloody wonderful!

It's a disgrace!

[SIGHS] No wonder

they wouldn't let you fly!

Hey, my flying has got

nothing to do with my drinking.

Give me that before you kill somebody.

You want to be careful.

It's loaded.

Oh, thank you very much, Captain,

for pointing out the blooming obvious.

I'm driving.

It doesn't count if you're sober.



That was a nice shot.

[GRUNTS] I'm good.

[GROANS] I'm good.

Shouldn't take yourself

so seriously, Oxford.
