and I had 11.

So I was one horse shy...

of almost saving my city.

So then you didn't really...

Oh, I had just conquered Thebes,

and then that happened.

All right.

You go to that one,

and I'II go to this one.

All right.


You see anything?

Big hills.


Uh, re-split up.

All right.

All right, see the ravine?


That's the spot.

So you go to the next one,

I'II go to the next one.

if you don't find anything,

we meet back right there.

if you find something,

f*ck the spot, I'II find you.

Higher hilltop, meet at spot.

Or f*ck the spot, wait there.

- Yeah.

- Roger.




Gerry! Gerry!



What are you doing?


You're supposed to go on

a high-hilI scout-about.

You're on a rock in a canyon.

I did.

Yeah, did you see anything?

No, did you?


Well, what are

you doing on the rock?

Looking for you.

Why didn't you

just go to the spot?

I did.

You weren't there.

I've been there.

I was just sitting there.

Dude, that's not the spot.

The spot is, like,

a haif of a mile that way.

I was at the spot.

I was waiting for you forever.

I was yelling your name.

And I just came walking up here,

and I saw the rock.

I crow's-nested up here

to scout-about the ravine

'cause I thought maybe you

gerried the rendezvous.

Sure enough, I mean,

that's not the spot.

All right, my fault.

Well, if you had assumed that,

then you should've gone

to the top of my mountain

because the whole plan was

if one guy finds something,

then you go to his mountain.

No, I know the plan,

but I saw you coming down

when I was on the way down,

and when you never showed up,

I thought maybe you'd succumbed.

I almost did succumb,

but then I turbaned up,

and I feeI a lot better.

Come on, dude, let's go.

I can't.
