Terminal Velocity

Synopsis: Ditch Brodie is a maverick skydiving instructor. One day, a beautiful girl comes in, wanting to take her first jump. Up in the air, Ditch takes his eyes off her momentarily, then looks back to find out that she has fallen out, dying on impact. Ditch is suspicious that all is not as it seems, because he distinctly remembers hooking her static line on...

It's a she.


You better get on

those phone calls, Max.

- Yeah. Yeah.

- See ya later.

Uh-huh. See ya.

I can't believe I'm doing this.

You're the instructor?

Yes. Ditch Brodie.

If you saw the recent media coverage,

it was all a pack of lies.

- Sorry. I didn't know.

- Good.

- Um, Chris Morrow. Hi.

- Hi, Chris.

I, uh, wanted to take

a lesson today, so...

I think I do...

Yeah, I think I do.

- So it's a rush, right?

- Oh, yeah.

That's what I keep reading.

Just like a great high, right?

- Let me guess. First time?

- How'd you know?

Just a hunch.

Listen, Chris,

I'm a little shorthanded today.

The good news is I can squeeze you in

first thing Friday morning.

- How's that sound?

- Hey, Ditch, if you're grounded, maybe I could...

Hello, Tom. Bye, Tom.

Hey, guys, it's me, all right?

- Ditch?

- You don't want Tom.

- Why not?

- Because you want the best, and you're already talkin' to him.

- How does Friday sound?

- Right. Um...

I don't know.


You see, it took me a while to work up

the nerve to just drive here,

and I think if I don't

do it today, right now,

I'm afraid I may

never come back.


Um, no.

Oh, boy.

- Okay.

- Yeah?

- Yeah.

- Oh, my God!

Now, first lesson,

I usually recommend a tandem jump.

- Which is?

- We go out of the plane together.

I hang onto you the entire way down.

It's a nice, safe, secure feeling.


Like that?

Unless you prefer

to be on top.

No. No.

Um, someone mentioned

a static line.

- C-Could we try that or...

- Yeah, it's an option.

- That's safe, right?

- Yeah.

- So we're on.

- This is good. I'm excited.

- Oh, God.

- I mean, I'm excited.

- Oh, really? Okay.

- Let's sign you up, all right?

- Break.

- You dip your right shoulder, then move to the right.

Your other right.
