- Hi.
- [Ruth] Liv, where are you?
- I just got your email.
- [Liv] I'm fine.
I just have to go out of town
for a couple of days.
[Ruth] Out of town? Is everything
Everything's in the email I sent.
I know it's a lot.
I just don't want any surprises.
I'll try to check in when I can.
I just don't know what service
is gonna be like.
[Ruth] Sure. Should I loop Danny in?
This is Danny.
He just came over with the merger.
Um nice to meet you.
Yeah. Why why wouldn't you?
[Ruth] He's just asking
if you still want him on this.
He's a great lawyer, of course, I do.
Anyway, it's not my call.
- [Ruth] Liv, are you sure you're okay?
- I'm fine.
Let's circle back on prep strategy
once I'm back in the office.
I've just never known you
to take time off
Ruth, I'm fine. I really have to go. Um,
- text me if you need anything, okay? Bye.
- [Ruth] Liv
- [staff] Olivia Rivera?
- [Liv] Yeah.
You're the 1:10 trip to Inuvik, right?
Yes. My plane was supposed to leave
like an hour ago?
Yeah, sorry about that.
It looks like wind's pretty bad up
in Outer Rapids today.
Your plane's stuck there,
so, you're kind of SOL, unfortunately.
We can try to get you
on something tomorrow maybe?
What? No! No, no, no. I I took
two flights to get here from New York.
I have to get to Inuvik today.
I'm I'm trying to meet someone
before they leave again.
- Maybe you can call them?
- [Liv] No, I
She she doesn't know I'm coming.
Maybe you should tell her.
Can you get me on a plane or not?
I'm sorry, miss,
but I can't help you today.
[airplane engine roars]
[aircraft engine droning]
[indistinct chatter on PA system]
[sentimental music]
[woman exhales]
You look just like me when I was your age.
[in Spanish]
I'm able to know that.
[George in English]
Where are we going this time?
[Sam] Top of the Mackenzie River.
[George] Jesus. That's past Inuvik.
Where are they gonna send us next,
the North Pole?
- Excuse me.
- [PA system beeps]
- Sorry. Excuse me?
- [voice over PA] Flight 899
Excuse me! Sorry. Hi.
Did you say you're going to Inuvik?
Uh past Inuvik, yeah.
This is gonna sound crazy,
but, is there any way you guys
could take me with you?
Crazy for who? You don't even know us.
Look, I'm small, I have this one bag.
I promise I'll be quiet.
Quiet's not really an option
on a Cessna 208.
I just, I really need to get
to Inuvik today.
And it looks like my plane is stuck
somewhere and
- I'm sorry, we'd love to help you out.
- [Liv] Then help me out.
- Please.
- If it was just me?
You know, but we're doing this for work.
Somebody else is picking up the tab
and then if something happens,
I think they may be liable for
No, they wouldn't. That's not
I'm a lawyer. That's not a thing.
I'm sorry. Good luck.
I'll give you a thousand dollars.
Each. I'll give you each
a thousand dollars.
Look, you guys do Venmo?
I can I can send it to you right now.
Look, I feel for you. We just can't do it.
I just want to sit on your plane.
I just want to sit on your plane
and travel in the direction
that you're already flying.
- That's it. I just
- Okay! Okay.
- [security] Everything all right here?
- Yes.
Thank you. We're, we're just figuring out
who gets the window seat.
- Sure. We'll get you to Inuvik.
- [George sighs]
Oh, my God, thank you.
I'm Liv, by the way.
- Sam.
- [Liv] Sam.
This is George, pilot ordinaire.
[airplane engine roars]
[in loud voice]
Just souping her up. Sam likes to go fast.
All good?
All good.
[light music]
[light music continues]
You're a nervous flier?
[in unamplified voice]
I'm a nervous crasher.
- I said no, I'm a nervous crasher.
- [chuckles]
- [rattling]
- Is this normal?
Late summer air, mixtures of hot and cold,
makes for a rough ride.
[George] Hey. Hey, no cell phone.
You'll mess with the instruments.
- Seriously? That's a real thing.
- [Sam] Uh, it's fine.
George just doesn't trust anything
without a rotary dial.
Isn't there like smoother air higher up
or something?
Do you have other thoughts?
How's my tracking?
- I'm sorry. I'm just
- [Sam] Don't worry.
George knows what he's doing.
[George] If I didn't, I wouldn't tell you.
Hey, you want a drink?
Might help calm your nerves.
- No, I'm good.
- [Sam] You sure?
You want a Power Bar, bottle of water?
Cocktail, New York Times?
- I'm not really a Power Bar person.
- You ever been to Inuvik?
There's not gonna be much open
by the time we land. Take them.
So, uh, what takes you
to the northwest territories?
I'm shooting the caribou run.
Uh, not shoot. "Shoot."
I'm a photographer
for National Geographic.
Wow, your job's so much cooler than mine.
Well, I don't know about that.
What kind of law do you practice?
I'm a securities litigator.
You're right. My job is cooler.
Caribou run this late?
I thought that was a spring thing.
Hey, you got to go somewhere
to come back, right?
I just go where they tell me.
I'll be sitting in a camouflage tent
with a thermos full of coffee
and about 8,000 cameras,
waiting for anything with antlers
to run by.
That sounds nice.
It does, doesn't it?
And what about you?
What brings a securities litigator
this far north?
Um, just boring lawyer stuff.
Uh, it seemed like more of
an emergency back at the airport.
I'm gonna take a nap.
Uh, I'm sorry. I wasn't trying
No, it's fine. it's just I'm I'm tired.
Took me forever to get in from
- I'm just tired.
- [Sam] All right.
We'll try to keep it down for you.
[plane engine roars]
[plane engine roars halts]
[earphones beeps]
[woman speaks in a calm voice]
Close your eyes.
Ensure you're resting
in a comfortable position.
Inhale and exhale slowly,
in through the nose
and out through the mouth.
Focus on tensing
and relaxing each part of your body.
Allow all thoughts to fall away.
You are only your body.
You are only your breath.
[high heels clacking]
[Ruth] Hey, you made it.
- Hi.
- [Liv] Hi. Of course, I made it.
You said you were having a crisis?
Yeah, the crisis was that
you never come out to these things.
- Ruth, I have work to do.
- [Ruth] No, Liv, no.
- No. Come on.
- [Ruth] We have all have work to do,
but right now take this
- [Liv] No.
- your work is beating Danny at darts.
- [stammers]
- [Ruth] We're down a player. Yes, yes.
- Go. No, it's fine just go. It's great.
- [Liv] Are you fucking
- [Ruth chuckles]
- Hey.
I think I just got tricked.
Why? You thought
it was a shuffleboard tournament?
I can't stay long.
Am I ready for this?
I hear you're a shark.
I've never played before.
That's exactly what a shark would say.
[upbeat music playing]
Is Ruth trying to set us up?
Yeah, I think she is.
[Danny] Huh.
Is that appropriate?
- No, it isn't.
- [Danny] Right.
That's what I Okay.
Although, I guess, technically,
we're not at work.
Right. Bit of a gray area.

- Do you have, uh, life preservers?
- [whimpers]
- Sam! Sam, do you have life preservers?
- [George groaning]
Flotation devices, something?
- No. I don't know. I'll check.

My leg is stuck!

- No!
You just have this metal thing
in your leg,

It's pretty bad.
A tourniquet.

Sam, how do I make it tighter?
[exhales, panting]
Okay, I think I got it.
Oh, thank God it stopped.

Come on.
Are you kidding me?
