Tape 407



[Static hissing]


Here we are on the way home.

We're going to the airplane.

Whoo, home.

Do you really have

to tape everything?

Yes, I do.

Okay, um, well, maybe you

should buy your own camera.

Um, why would I do that

if I could just use yours?

Right, like you do

all the rest of my stuff.


- Hello, welcome aboard.

- Hi.

Hello, welcome aboard.

- Hello.

- Hello, thanks.

- Hi.

- Hi.

Hello, ma'am.

- Nice necklace.

- Thank you.

- I'm coming, Jess.

- You're holding up the line.

You're really

embarrassing me right now.

- Just keep walking...

- Hi.

And pretend like

you don't know me.

- Hi, guys.

- Hi.

Do you know where

our seats are?

Hi, ma'am.

Um, second to last.


- Hello.

- Hi.

Right here.


Um, yeah, just a second.

- I think we're down here.

- Here we go.

Do you want...

Yeah, go ahead,

take the window.

[Light instrumental music]

Ooh, I love your bag!

Oh, thank you.

Sit down.

Hang on; that guy

has a cool green beanie.

That girl is taking forever

just to put her bags up.

Must be heavy.

Oh, that guy helped her.

Trish, why don't you

buckle up?

- What?

- [Whispers] Buckle up.

Not yet.

She's filming right now.


Hi. Nice camera.

Thank you.

"Nice camera."


Bald guy.

- Uh-oh.

- He doesn't...


He looks a little drunk.

Yeah, I don't think

he looks happy.

[Indistinct chatter]


That boy looks nice.

Are you nervous flying?

I am, yes.


Um, I don't know.

Dying... doesn't really

sound good to me.

Yeah, but I heard once

that it's safer to fly...

...than it is to drive in a car,

rather than flying in a plane.


Yeah, it's true.

I like to stay on the ground.

Me too.

I like driving.

- She'll be fine.

- It's better.

You'll be fine, right?


As soon as we start taxiing,

I am gonna need you

to turn the camera off.

You can turn it back on

once we're in flight.


No, no, no, don't tell her

to turn it back on.

It has to stay off.

And if I can also just

have you move your bags, please.

- Oh, sorry.

- Push 'em all the way forward.

Thank you.

We are currently third

in line for takeoff...

...and are expected

to be in the air...

...in approximately

seven minutes' time.

We ask that you please fasten...

Please give me my camera back.

Hi, sir.

Can you please

give me my camera back?

I'm really sorry.

- Hello.

- Do you like to be on camera?

Can you please

give me my camera back?

Or does this make you


I would prefer not.

He doesn't want to be...

Okay, I have

to put this away now.

- Enjoy the flight.

- Jess.

What's that?

Oh, my gosh,

give it back.

Angry bald guy's getting mad

at the flight attendant.


as soon as we start.

- It will calm me down.

- Are you prescribed medication?

He needs a drink

to calm him down.

I'm afraid I cannot

offer you a drink...

...until ten minutes

after flight.

What I can do is, I can offer

you a seat further up...

...with less people around if that

makes you more comfortable.

I don't want another seat;

I just want a drink.

That should take care

of everything.




I think for $500 that I paid,

plus $25 for the extra bag,

it wouldn't kill you to offer me

a little service.

Sir, I need you

to keep your voice down.

My voice is down.

- No, it is not, sir.

- No, it's not.

You don't want

to hear my voice raised.

[Whispers] Shut up!

If you would like

to raise your voice,

you're welcome

to step off the plane.

I think that

this airline is rotten.
