There's more over here!

Bring another team!

We'll need a lot more help!

Are you okay? Is the baby all right?

It's okay. You can stay with your dad.

I'm not his father. He's alone.

- Go with him.

- No, please.

- You'll be okay.

- I want to be with you.

Take him.

I've got to find the mother.

Now, go.

Come with me.

You'll be all right.

Everyone, please stay where you are.

We'll be with you in a minute.

Get them out of there! It's going to blow!

Get them out!

My boy!

My boy! My little boy's in there!

No, my baby's in there!

I can't leave my boy!


Stop, my baby's in there!

My baby!


Are you okay?

Were you in the crash?

No. I found this baby.

I've got to find the mother.

There's a woman over there.

She's looking for her baby.

Right over there.

Is this your baby?

My sweet angel.

I want to go to the nearest hotel.

You've got to be kidding.

You're not dead.

An InterCity Air spokesperson indicates

an estimated 200 passengers were...

Wire reports confirm a crash

of an InterCity Airjet...

...in the northeast section of the county

at Route 7 and Lake.

ALthough, remarkabLy enough,

peopLe maintained themseLves pretty weLL.

PeopLe puLL together in a situation Like that

and the crew was very professionaL.


Max Klein.

What the hell are you doing here?

Just passing through.

You bastard, you don't look any different.

- Nice try.

- It's true.

Look at you. I can't believe it!

It's been 20 years.

These are strawberry pancakes?

I wanted...

Do you have whole strawberries?

I guess.

Bring me a bowl, please.

I don't remember you having

a thing for strawberries.

How's Bill? Is he head

of the theater department yet?


He was passed over.

I'll make this quick. I can't stand going

through the list. My life's a disaster.

No, it isn't.

- Yes, it is.

- Trust me.

Your life isn't a disaster.

I'm fat. I haven't written a play in years.

Timmy, my oldest...

...has a learning disability.

Thanks to therapy I love him for what

he is, not my fantasy of what he should be.

The middle two, James and Sarah,

resent the extra attention Timmy got...

...so they f*** up in school to punish us.

They're working it out in a support group,

Siblings of the Learning Disabled.

My youngest, Ellen, who was going to be

a great ballerina...

...destroyed her ankle playing basketball

with her brothers.

As for Bill, he's screwing a student.


It's not even tragic.

Have a strawberry?

What good will that do?

Forbidden fruit always does good.

Forbidden fruit.

I didn't come for that.

It figures.

You always were faithful.

And you?

Who'd have me?

Wait a minute.

Aren't you allergic to strawberries?

Didn't you almost die when you were little

from eating a strawberry?

I'm past all that.

See? No reaction.

No reaction at all.

- That's him.

- What?

Good morning. I'm Agent Parsons,

this is Agent Smith. We're with the FBI.

You're registered as Mr. Max Klein...

...1147 Varennes in San Francisco.

Is that correct?

You got me.

Can we come in?

Were you on a flight from San Francisco

to Houston that made an emergency...

Yes, I was.

Took a hike from the scene?

Just up and left?

- What time is it?

- 10:
00, Thursday morning.

You've been missing almost a day.


What are you doing here?

You walked from the crash,

rented a car, drove to L. A...


They didn't need me anymore.

Need you for what?

Am I under arrest?

You haven't done anything.

Do you?

Do you know this man?

I'm Cindy Dickens...

...of InterCity Air and I'm here

to help get you home.

That's nice.
