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.

Technological...

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?

Grrr.

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.

Paul:
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.

Paul:

Don't worry, you look great.

Hi.

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.

White:

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?

Paul:

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.

Woman:

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.

Bye.

Big mouth.

Okay.

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.

Ellen:

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.

Paul:

I'm on it.

- Does this happen often?

- Yes.

Sometimes.

We don't know what it is though.

White:

Are there people living upstairs?
