I am filing a grievance

with the union on this.


I mean, double overtime

on labor day? Ugh!

View ain't too shabby

though, huh?

Sure, but I'd still

rather spend time with the fam.

You gentlemen do

realize sequential cooling units

are incapable of

replacing themselves.

Sorry, Kate. I am

examining the connectors now.

Check orientation

to payload bay.

Beginning installation.

Stand by.

It's another beautiful day

in sunny Southern California.

Nothing but clear, blue

skies in the forecast.

So get that party started.

Let's make this a labor day

weekend to remember.

So keep it tuned right here

as I keep on spinning

today's hottest...

Look, I'm telling you, man,

this girl's gorgeous.

I'm just not in the mood,

all right?

It's been over a year now. You've

been in that cage long enough.

We'll drink some beers,

have some laughs, get laid.

By the end of this weekend

you're gonna be a whole new you.

Charlie 2.0

I'm so ready. I need a vacation.

Need a lift? -I don't know, I heard

hitchhiking can be dangerous.


Hey, char. I'd like to

introduce you to Annie.

- Hi, Charlie. Nice to meet you.

- You too.

Oh, and, uh, dude drooling

back there,

- he answers to Brendan.

- Hey.

All right, let's get 'em

in there, yeah?

Oh yeah, sorry, on my phone.

Do you want me to put

your bag in the back?

Oh, yeah, thank you. Thanks.

Oh my god, you guys,

it looks like the lake's gonna

be over 80 degrees all weekend.


- I can't wait to jump in! Oh my god!

- It's so gonna happen.

My brother said

we can use his jet ski.

- Uh, no.

- Yeah. Oh.

We're not jet skiing.

Jet skiing's for tools.

Oh, shut up.

You think this dump

has a restroom?

C'mon, find a bush.

For the gas.

- Want one?

- Yes, I do.

Should I, um?


- Sorry, the music.

- That's okay.


So, uh... you always

such a chatterbox?

Yeah, um, sorry, I just

have a lot on my mind.

Well, do you wanna

talk about it, or?

- No.

- Okay.

- Sorry, just...

- No, it's fine.

Not right now.

Yeah, okay.

I'll let you get back to your,

uh, wallowing, or whatever.

- You in the wrong place!

- No, no, no, no!

I didn't see anything, I swear!

- Yeah, but you gonna.

- Help!

Keep yappin', see what happen.

Goddamn reporters. Ain't you

taken enough already?

You don't understand. We just

actually stopped for gas.

Oh, just filling up, huh?

Old Sunday drive, route 66.

You seem damn interested

in my handiwork.

No, no, no, no, no, no, no!

- I think we oughta take a look.

- No, please.

- Sure you do.

- No!

Surely, c'mon.

This here's Bambi. Dead Bambi.

Say hello, Bambi.

What's going on, Brendan?

You trying to pass

a kidney stone?

Bren, what's going on, man?

Look, I think this is just

a big misunderstanding, okay?

Bren, we should go. Now.

Yeah, Brendan, you should leave.


Yo, have a nice day, huh?

Oh sh*t, he's got a gun.

Get in the car, now.

- What's going on?

- Go. Just get in!

- What did you do?

- I didn't do anything.

Yeah, you shoulda knocked

him on his butt, dude.

That's what I woulda done.

Dude, this hillbilly

was, like, crazy strong.

His hands, he had, like, Kung fu

action grip or something.

Uh, Elizabeth.

We're here.

Babe, this is going

to be incredible.

All right, guys, get your bags.

Well this is gonna be fun.


- What you think, man?

- Yeah!

This way.


Your parents really know how to

live it up, don't they, huh?

They do okay.

Hey, I need to set up my

equipment before it gets dark.

Okay, yeah. Annie knows the way

to the lake.

- Oh, yeah.

- Awesome.

You guys coming?

Oh, uh, we have to, uh...

Prep the bedrooms?


Nice. Follow me.

Have fun with that.

Oh, what does that do?

It's a motion sensor.

This thing has a 40 foot

flash radius,

so it can catch

any nighttime visitors.

- Any what?

- Bigfoot.

Bears, actually.

So, uh, who is she?

The girl on your phone.

I'd rather just not talk

about it, if that's all right.

Yeah, okay.

Breathtaking, isn't it?


Kara and I used to stand here

and close our eyes,

and let go of every worry,

every fear.


Yo! Over here,

hurry up!

Oh hell, yeah.

Come on.

Y'all watch crime dramas?

'Cause this is pretty much

always where they find the body.


It's abandoned.

Kara and I used to love

exploring this place as kids.

I don't think this

is so abandoned.

I guess a quick peak

wouldn't hurt.

This is a 9.3 ghz

Doppler radar, man.

Still works.

Oh, wow.

You guys.

This is military radio.

Are you okay?

Hey, here, sit down, sit down.

Annie, what do you need?

Just tell me what you need.

- Are you okay?

- Yeah.

Oh, trust me, that was nothing.

- Nothing?

- Yeah.

- Seemed pretty intense to me.

- No, it's all...

Whoo, it's all good.

Guys, it's the crazy dude

from the gas station.

- What?

- What?

Holy crap, it's actually him.

Oh, no.

Sh*t! Come on, let's go.

Go, go, go, go, go, go, go!

Let me try. Let me try.

Shh, shh.

Oh my god.

What's going on?

Go, go, go!

Here he comes.

Go, go, go!

Come on, hurry up.

Here he comes. Go!

Run! Run!

You okay? Hey, you okay?

Come on, let's go, let's go.

Come on.


are debating the cause

of the spiraling clouds

first observed over

the entire peninsula.

Is this further proof

of global warming?

Wait, wait!

That's what people across

the country have been asking

since those mysterious
