That we shouldn't have saved everybody?

That's not personal.

That's the NTSB just doing their job.

Once they got all the facts,

then we all calm down.

Sully, they should pin on you on a medal...

and send you back to work.

Sorry, this mailbox is full.

I didn't called Lori since this morning.

Emily and Miles did.

Not meaning to bother, but I have to say:

It is an honor driving you today.

Thank you.

What has it been this here so far?

Bernie Madoff, two wars without end...

many million of people with no work,

and that's just the first two weeks of January.

Pride this headline:

This is beautiful!

Hey Mike, how about we got the driver

as a character witness?


Yeah, finally.

The NTSB has us all tied up all day.

Yeah, I just... I need to hear your voice.

I've heared everybody else's.

You'd be amazed on how many cousins you have.

It doesn't feel much like family.

They're quiet here too.

There are reporters who would give an update.

Inside the mind of Sully.

What should I tell them.

Lori, tell them you don't love to tell them...

I can't, I can't hear you, Sweetie. Listen, really,

I can't hear you. Just, just call me back.

You don't have to talk with them.

Call. I can't hear you, call me back.

How did you blow out the impossible?

I'm thinking about running over the press with the car.

Self-Defense, think the juror would convinct?

Do what you have to do.

No, I'm taking that as permission.

Cops will be coming after you.

Sully, are you listening to me?

We should talk later.

Honey, it is later. I've been reading all day.

Are you okay?

Yeah, I'm just tired, that's all.

How are the girls?

Oh, they're...

They're a bit overwhelmed,

sounds like you are too.

Yeah, well, they'll be alright.

They'll be alright.

The whole world is talking about you.
