Hey there, good looking.

Deputy Brody.

I hope you're here to frisk me.

Well, service is half our motto.

Don't they prohibit you

from corrupting young girls?

I'm pretty sure you've

already been corrupted.



Hell of a thing.

Billion dollars

to put it up in the sky,

60 million to bring it back.

Are we still confirmed

for launch time?

No sir, it's been

pushed back to 0-800.

Well, you can tell them

that Recovery is still ready

and waiting for the sky to fall.

Yes sir.

I'll be in rover two

if you need me.



Sir, control is ready to launch.

About time. Inform control that

rover is ready and waiting.

Control indicates

firing in ten, nine...

I'll just read it off the

screen, Sarge. Eight...

I'll just read it

off the screen.



Sir, we have a

deviation... Say again?

The satellite

is off-plane.

Control is aborting the launch.

Screens are not

showing anything.

All right, back it up and show me

the past few seconds of footage.

Doesn't appear

to be military, sir.

Could be a meteor.

Plot the target's new

trajectory and point of impact.

I've been thinking

a lot about what you said.

I just don't get it.

You love me.

I love you...

I like you a lot, Max.



I'm not even sure what that is.


We agreed on just friends.

If you can't handle that,

then this is just

gonna have to stop.

I'm just trying to...

Yeah, I know you're

trying, all right?


I also know how I feel.

And until I feel differently,

this is just how it has to be.



How's it gonna be?

Well, I'm not giving you up.

So I guess I'll stick

with this then.

I just... I just don't

want to keep having

the same conversation.

Yeah, I... I get it,

all right?

And mum's the word.



You're a hard woman to love.

I know.

See you later then?

It is a small town.



Be careful.

Watch out for bears.

And lions and tigers.


Supposed to be good weather.

That's good news.

Steph's been working

so hard on that merit badge.

I'd hate for her

to come home empty handed.

Ah, she'll do fine

rain or shine.

Brooke still out on her run?

She left before sunrise.

You know that girl

is gonna get hurt

if she keeps running at night.

She's been running

in those woods forever.

She knows where

all those mines are,

yours included.


About time you got up.

Daylight's a wastin'.

I'd have been up sooner if you

had a phone in this place.

That's your answer

for everything.

Get a phone and you'll

stop hearing it.

Where you heading today?

Thought I'd head

up to the gorge.

Some good deadfall up there.

Plus, the burnout will be

good for the seedlings.

Well, if it stays clear

we'll use the mares

and bring it all on home.

Sounds good to me.

See y'all later.



There go the fuel tanks.

Get the team wheels up.

I want best speed

for Preacher's Mill.

Inform HOUSTONE we'll survey the wreckage

and extract whatever's left.

And tell the local fire crews

to hang back

until we get there.

The last thing we need

is for some short order cook

to get a face full

of hydrazine.

Hey, Dad.

Hey, good morning, Brooke.

How was your run?


You about ready to go?

Steph is going crazy

with the wait.

Yeah, I'll be just a sec.

Hi, Mom.

Hi, sweetheart,

how was the run?


Your Dad and Steph

are waiting on you.

Yeah, I know.
