You got the right idea.

Oh, yes, back to work.

Hey, there's

the man of the hour.

- Happy birthday, man.

- Thank you.

How you feeling?

Feeling older? Feeling wiser?

Well, it all blends together

after a little while.

I wouldn't touch that.

I'm gonna eat all of it.

That's what's gonna happen.


See that?

Come here real quick.

Glen, can you bring up visual

on the shaft real quick, please?

Visual's coming up now.

How far down are we?

We are passing

the 1,000-foot marker... now.

Let's take it further.

- Can we pick up the drop?

- Yeah, speed that up.

3,000 feet.


What was that?

You seeing that?

Can you rewind that,

take it back?


What the...

That's c-shaft, isn't it?


All right.

- Be safe.

- Yeah.

Bring that back up.



What's going on?!

Oh, my god!

We got a war going on down here.

A global assault on a scale

the world has never seen.

We have reports that

these invading creatures

are terrestrial

and of subterranean origin.

The world's military forces

are making no gains

against these masses

and are heavily outnumbered

by what some are calling

"demon hordes."

Reports of mass migrations

and the beaching

of thousands of marine animals

along the European coastline

appear to be precursors

to the eclipse.

If we're still on the air,

stay in your homes.

Take shelter.

Our nation is under attack.

Similar events are happening

all over the world.

We want to repeat,

take shelter now.

After 24 horrific hours

and a second eclipse,

the world needs to recover.

No one knows

what this means for us.

The president has proposed

the creation

of a new department

of homeland security:

The DHS, which will ensure

the preparedness of our nation

in the months and years ahead.

Military installations

now circle the globe

and all deep-core fissures.

These facilities,

known as "gates,"

will stand guard against

the dire possibility

of another event,

that harrowing

24 hours of terror

known as

the "day of reckoning."

There you are, buddy.

Not doing so well, are you?

Seen better days...

You and me both.

Come here, little man.

I know. This sucks.


Sorry, little buddy.

Time to go home.

All right, we got it.

Bagged and tagged.

- Ooh-whee!

- What do we got?

Next time, Ramon,

I think you should go in.

God damn!

Is it still alive?

Nah. Too many jellybeans,

I think.

Poor little guy

never had a chance.

That asbestos thing, by the way,

hasn't gone away yet.

That's next on my list.

Boss, I'm serious.

- Yep.

- It's kind of a big...


No, the other way,

the other way.

Thanks a lot, Mr. Wilson.

Appreciate it.

All right.

Hi, Laura.

Hi, Milton.

I need to borrow your skeleton.

Sure. It's right over there.

Oh, thank you.

Um, I was wondering.

I mean, I know

your ex-husband

has your son for the weekend,

and obviously

you're gonna have to eat,

so I thought that you might...

That's, um...

That's very thoughtful of you,

Milton. It just...

Rain check?

Ah, sure.

Yeah, I understand.

I'll put that check

with the others.

See you later.

I'd love to.

You would? Love to what?

Have dinner.

You would?

Well, okay, then.

No more rain checks.

I will pick you up

at 8:
00, promptly.

See ya.

Here's the thing.

He doesn't know.

He likes her.

See that girl right over there?

Yeah. She's good.


- You gonna do it?

- Go talk to her.

I'm sorry,

but your beautiful smile

has entirely distracted me.

Okay, no make-out session

in front of your friends.

You worried about

the eclipse tomorrow?


I mean, they say
