Get a CBC, chest X-ray and an EKG.

- Must be some holiday we don't know about.

Ready, 1, 2, 3!

- Two. Here and here.

- Decreasing respiration and a weak pulse.

I'll just wait here, OK?

- I can't leave you here after an earthquake.

Get in the door frame, put your head between

Who's in for a ten spot?

Vegas, 6.8.

Vegas. I love that.

..we hope to get confirmation of

the shaker's magnitude from seismologists.

I can't.

I can't.

A couple of sentences, a question or two.

Why don't you do it?

People wanna hear from a seismologist,

not a pencil pusher.

If I go out there, I'm gonna throw up.

That won't send

the sense of calm we're looking for.

- Hey, you guys feel anything this morning?

- You're off the hook, Flash.

You weren't gonna
