Marianne!

Marianne, come on!

We got to go right now!

We can't leave!

Honey, we got to go right this

second. We can't leave! Not yet.

Look at these readings!

Let's stick around.

Forget the readings!

Juan, Chico,

get what you can quickly!

Where are

the seismic records?

We can't wait.

Come on, Marianne!

Come quick! Come on!

See you at the fort!

Chico, stay close behind us, okay?

Come on, get in!

I hope they'll be okay.

I can't even

see the road.

Are you okay?

If we make it

through this...

We'll have

some stories to tell.

Oh, shit, honey.

Shit!

We're going to get out.

Don't worry.

Marianne?

Oh, no!

Harry Dalton here.

Leave a message.

Harry, are you there?

Come on, pick up.

Come on,

I know you're there.

We're picking up something

in the Northern Cascades.

I need your opinion on it.

Listen, get down here as

soon as you get this message.

You better pack

for a couple of days.

Harry, are you sure

you're not there?

Take a big step.

Come on.

What are you

doing here?

You're supposed to be

on vacation.

Paul called. There's something

going on in the Northern Cascades.

You can't leave work alone,

can you?

Harry, going on vacation

isn't going to kill you.

I appreciate that.

Thanks.

Good morning.

What's going on

in the Cascades?

I am sorry I had to

drag you in like this,

but we are picking up some

activity around Dante's Peak.

This is a joke, right?

Dante's Peak?

What do you think the odds

are against an eruption?

1,000-to-1?

More like 10,000-to-1.

What's the depth?

10 to 20 kilometers.

You're number seven.

It's on the corner there.

Good man.

Any idea where

I'll find Mayor Wando?

She should be right around the

corner, accepting some award.

Dante's Peak was

just named the best...

Second-best place to live

in the United States.

Population under 20,000.

Good for you.

What was number one?

I don't know. Some piece of crap

town out in Montana. Who cares?

I'll be seeing you.

Okay.

I'd like to thank Karen

from Money Magazine

for this wonderful award.

What is it?

Lauren,

is it Karen or Kathy?

It's Karen, Mom.

For the tenth time: Karen.

You're going to be late.

Seen my good jacket?

You don't have one.

The blue one?

Oh, that one.

It's on the back of

the chair in the kitchen.

Graham, it's time to go.

Where is your brother?

He'll meet us there.

There's your jacket.

Okay.

Let's go!

You'll be late!

I got to say something.

Folks, we're real sorry

for the delay.

We're going to get

started in one moment.

Any moment now.

Go find a place, okay?

Okay.

Hey, Bill.

Hey, Rachel.

Thank God.

Ladies and gentlemen,

I'd like to introduce

the mayor of Dante's Peak,

Rachel Wando.

It's about time.

Ladies and gentlemen,

this is a very special day

in Dante's Peak.

To kick off

the festivities,

I would like to introduce Karen

Narlington of Money Magazine.

Thank you.

Thank you very much, Les.

Mayor Wando,

it gives me great pleasure

to present to you

a Money Magazine award.

Dante's Peak,

the second most desirable place

to live in the United States

population under 20,000.

Congratulations.

Thank you.

Karen!

Thank you, Karen.

Thank you, Lauren.

This award means

a lot to us.

We've been proud of our

town for a long time.

It's beautiful, it's safe, it's a

wonderful place in which to raise a family.

Tell 'em, Mayor!

Now, with the prospect of a major

investment in our economic future

by Mr. Elliot Blair

of Blair Industries...

Will you stand up, Elliot?

Next year we're going to be

number one.

You'll love this.

Come on in.

It's great.
