Check check.

One-two, One-two.

Check check. Check?

Okay, groovy.

Paul Ortega, reporting live

from the inside of a glorious van,

capturing this moment

for posterity. I'm...

what's the best way

to describe it? I'm the...

technical expert.


I'm the expert, that's me.

Yeah, I know, I know.

Ellen Keegan--

young, beautiful,

gatekeeper of the group.

What's a gatekeeper, Ellen?

That's right, nobody knows.

Ellen is shy by day.

But by night?


Ellen answers the phone.

You our secretary, Ellen?

I would love to scratch that.

Yeah, Ellen still doesn't know

she's our secretary-- by day.

By night-- grrr.

Joseph Helzer-- Dr. Helzer.

My boss, Ellen's boss,

but that's obvious

given Ellen is the secretary.

- Ellen:
Not the secretary.

- No? You're the telephone girl.

- Not the telephone girl.

- No? You're the gatekeeper?

- Exactly.

- Exactly. Ellen still doesn't know

she's the telephone girl.

Ow. It's Friday.

The sun is shining.

It's 2:
00 in the afternoon--

- Ellen:
Half past 2:00.

- Half 2:
00, who cares? I do.

- Why? Because who am I?

- Ellen:
An idiot with a camera?

I am the technological expert.

From here

it looks like any old building.

- Helzer:
From here they all do.

- Paul:
That's true.

Sorry. We shouldn't have

loaded so much weight.


Don't worry, you look great.


Thank you so much for coming.

- Please, come in.

- Thank you, Mr. White.

- Hi.

- Hi.

I hope you don't mind.

It's just for our own records.

You know, internal use.


Kitchen's on the left. Bathroom.

The kids' room is down

at the end of the hall.

Sorry for the mess.

Dining room, living room.

- Ellen:
Well, so...

- Paul:
Nice place.

- Here we are.

- Paul:
I'm gonna put this down here.

Can we set up

our equipment in this room?

Yeah, of course, whatever.

Make yourself at home.

- Ellen:
Just let me have a look.

- The children?

Yeah, uh...

my youngest is gonna

be home from school soon.

And Caitlin is in her room.

She's not really happy

about all this, so...

If you want, I can call her.

No, we've got all weekend.

One step at a time.

- It's okay.

- I'm going to get the rest

of the stuff from the car.

Does anyone want to give me a hand?


Can I go?

Hey, little man.

Wave to the camera.

Oh, thank you.

- Ellen:
What's your name?

- Benny.

Benny? That's a lovely name.

Good boy.

Can you wave to the camera?

- Paul:
Wave one more time.

- Say hi.

- Say hi.

- Paul:
Oh, thank you.


Bye, Benny! Bye, Benny.

Do you... want some help

with your stuff or...?

- Paul:
Well, actually...

- Ellen:
No no.

No thank you, no, Mr. White.

We're fine. We'll see you up there.

- Okay.

- Okay. Bye, Benny.


Big mouth.


Check. One-two, one-two.

See? She's going to make a picture.

We're going to make a picture

of the whole weekend.

Scared? You scared?

Er... yeah. Now see, don't do that.

That's... that's not fun.

- You already got the kitchen, right?

- Yeah, we did.

- It's just the girl's room that's left?

- That's right.

Just a second.

Excuse me. Sorry.

Let me...

- Caitlin?

- Caitlin:
Go away!

Sweetie, they need to set up

in your room, honey.

I'm sorry.

She's just at a really difficult age.


That's all right.

Caitlin, we are coming in, I have to

open the door. I'm really sorry, honey.

Leave me alone!

Maybe you can set up

in there later?

- Paul:
Well, actually--

- Sure.

- Okay.

- Ellen:
Yeah, it's no problem.


I'm on it.

- Does this happen often?

- Yes.


We don't know what it is though.


Are there people living upstairs?
