Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Belkar: Oh, that's it. We're never to find an exit in time. This place is going to blow up and we're all gonna die!
Belkar: Game Over, man. Game Over!

Panel 2

Beat. Roy, Haley and Elan are looking past Belkar.

Panel 3

The door behind Belkar has a sign that reads:
Use in case of imminent explosion.
Belkar: Why are you all looking at me like that?

Panel 4

Roy points his finger at the door.
Belkar: Awww, goddamn it!
Haley: Seriously, Belkar, put some ranks in Spot already.

Panel 5

The Order runs up a sloping tunnel, Roy and Haley carrying Durkon.
Roy: C'mon, everyone, move! Move! Move!

Panel 6

They emerge from the tunnel on a rocky mountain slope.
Roy: Keep running! Get as far away as you can!
Elan waits at the tunnel exit.
Roy: Elan, what are you doing? Why aren't you running?

Panel 7

Elan: Roy, you may know strategies, and tactics, and basic math, and everyday common knowledge, but *I* know theatrics.
Elan: And I know that you can't jump to safety until the explosion is right behind you.

Panel 8

Roy: You have GOT to be kidding me!
Elan: Wait for it...

Panel 9

Light begins to shine from the tunnel exit.
Roy: I'm serious, you've got to leave NOW!
Elan: Wait for it...

Panel 10

Bright light is now shining from the tunnel exit.
Roy: Elan, I can't—
Elan: NOW!

Panel 11

Elan and Roy leap to safety just in front of a huge explosion, "BOOM!!"
Elan: Wow! Just like a Vin Diesel movie!
