Whoa, whoa.

Although Wegener was ridiculed

by the scientific community...

...he was eventually found

to be correct... his theory of an original

supercontinent called Pangaea.

Yeah. Okay.

Ah. Come to papa.

Hey, Leonard.

Hey, man.

- Dude, you ain't gonna be happy.

- Why?

- It's Kitzens.

- I see.

- Hello.

- Trevor, there's my favorite colleague.

- How are you, Alan?

- I'm good.

- How's that Con Drift class of yours going?

- Fine.

Does it get echoey in there

with so few students?

So, what do you got on the books?

I'm busy.

No, no, I can see how busy you are.

So I'll try to be

as quick as possible here.

The university is pulling the plug

on your brother's lab.

Pulling the plug?

Yeah, it's gonna finally give us

all the storage space we need.

Let's get something straight here,

this facility is dedicated... the research of Maxwell Anderson's

theories predicting the volcanic fissures...

Which have never been proven.

I mean, how many of your late brother's

sensors are even still active? One, two...?

- Three.

- It used to be 29.

This is the wrong time to shut us down.

I have got seismic activity in Bolivia.

I got a 13 millimeter shift in Mongolia.

Alan, you can't shut us down.

Keep the lab open.

- It's all I've got left of Max.

- It's been 10 years since Max, Trevor.

I am sorry about all this. I really am.

Trevor, are you there? It's Elizabeth.

Pick up, please.

Okay. Well, uh, we are on the 95,

and we're heading your way.

You wanna say hi

to your Uncle Trevor, Sean?


Just say hello.

- No.

I don't want to.

- Oh, no.

Hey, it's your sister-in-law again.

Just wanted to make sure

what time you'd be home...

... because we'll be there around 6.

Okay. Well, we'll be on my cell.

- Oh, boy.

- Sean's looking forward to seeing you.

- Right, Sean?

- Negatory.

I'm getting worried that

we might've gotten our signals crossed.

Please call me.

I'm not home. Leave me a message.

Trevor, we're pulling up

in front of your building.

Trevor, you in there?


- Hey.

- How are you, Elizabeth?

- Oh, you're home.

- It's so good to see you.

You too.

- How are you? I just got your messages.

- Uh-huh.

- You forgot, didn't you?

- I didn't forget.

How could I forget?

- You didn't forget?

- I...

I forgot.

It doesn't mean I haven't been...

...looking forward

to time with my nephew.

I haven't seen him since he was 9?

- Seven.

- Wow. Ha-ha.

So how long

is he gonna be staying again?

- Ten days.

- Is that what we said?

Hey, Sean. How are you?

Looking good.

- Is that one of those Game Boys?

- It's a PSP.

- Cool.

- Sean, get up, say hi to your uncle.

Hi to your uncle.

Last time I saw you,

you were about this high.

- Oh! Ha-ha.

- Yeah, good one.

You got that?

Okay, you've got all my numbers.

You've got your ticket

and passport in your bag.

I will be there to pick you up in Ottawa.

And by then I'll have found us a house

and we can start on this big new adventure.

- Pretty exciting stuff, huh?

- Yeah, it's great.

We get to be Canadians. Thrilling, eh?

Just let yourself in.

- It will be good for him, being with you.

- Yeah.

Who knows?

Maybe it will be good for you too.

This is for you.

What...? Is this Sean's?

No, it's Max's.

- Max's?

- Yeah.

So, hey, dude. This is gonna be fun.

A couple of dudes hanging out.

Five days, maybe a week.

You know, doing dude stuff,

what dudes do.

You like baseball?

You know what we should do?

We should go get in a batting cage.

Yeah, okay, listen.

I don't like this any more than you do.

As long as you keep stocked
