Journey

1 (BIRDS CHIRP) (CLICKING) (SINISTER MUSIC BUILDS) (CLICK) What do you reckon, Mick? Oh, it's pretty flash, isn't it, eh? Yeah, yeah, you know, that beauty'll shoot the brown eye out of a pig's arse at a thousand yards.
(LAUGHS) Good one! That'd make ya brown eye bloody, eh? (MAN LAUGHS) Oh, bloody oath, it would! You're a bit late this year, eh? Thought you'd be here a couple of months earlier.
- Yeah, I got delayed, mate.
- Oh.
Mate, if you want piggies, you oughta go up the Territory.
They had bucketloads of rain up there about six weeks ago.
- Pissin' down, eh? - Yeah, yeah.
MAN: I was just thinkin' about your dad, you know.
He used to come in here.
This is years back.
Years back, he'd come in here, mate, buy all his ammo for his dogging, and he'd always hang about for a bit of a yarn.
- He was a funny bastard.
- Oh, yeah? I loved him, mate.
He would have been the best dogger.
And fight! I saw him hit this fuckin' bloke once, mate, with a short right.
It was like he'd been hit with a fuckin' hammer.
Don't make 'em like that anymore.
Yeah.
God saw what he'd done and broke the mould.
- (LAUGHS) - Yeah, yeah.
Yeah, talkin' about your dad, there's been a been a bit of trouble down around your old stomping ground, eh? - Is that right? - Yeah.
There's some mad bastard killing everyone down there.
Makes you think, doesn't it? Oh, mate.
It's fuckin' shockin', isn't it? I reckon this cop'll get him, though.
- Who's that, then? - Yeah, this cop here.
MICK: Christ, he's an ugly bastard, isn't he? MAN: Oh, yeah, but I'll tell ya what, these mad bastards, you know, they reckon they got it all together, but they just make one mistake.
Someone recognises them.
They recognise the car.
They get all these little clues.
They put 'em together.
It's just like a big jigsaw puzzle.
And they're gone.
- Is that right? - Oh, mate.
I watched that HBO doco series, you know, on crime? They always got the murderer.
Uh! Just like that bloody Snowtown bunch of pricks.
I don't watch them crime shows.
Too violent, mate.
I like the funny stuff, you know? (BOTH LAUGH) Yeah.
Well Look, is there anything else I can get for ya? No, no.
I'm right, mate.
Got what I need here.
See you again soon, eh? - See ya, Tommy.
- Yeah.
But keep takin' the tablets, ya old bastard, eh? Just the blue ones, eh, so Stand up like a fuckin' telegraph pole.
Can still raise a sword, you're still in the fight.
Eh? Just gotta find the right size cabin, mate.
(LAUGHS) - Take a wombat, mate.
- Oh, get out.
(LAUGHS) You bastard.
(BELL CHIMES) (FLIES BUZZ) (ELECTRICITY CRACKLES) (BIRD SQUAWKS) - Mick! - Yeah.
Oh.
You forget something? You know what, Tommy? You talked me into it.
- I'll take this one.
- Oh, beauty! What, do you want a box of ammo? - Yeah, mate, that'd be good.
- Just the one box? Yeah, that'll do.
Ta, mate.
It's got a beautiful balance, that gun, you know? Beautiful balance, it is.
Smooth action.
I'll tell you what (TOMMY GASPS) What the fuck? (CHOKES) (GROANS) You want the good news or the bad news? It's you.
It's you, isn't it? No news is good news.
(BELL CHIMES) Fuck.
(ENGINE STARTS) (GENTLE ACOUSTIC GUITAR INTRO) SONG: Travelling in a fried-out kombi On a hippie trail Head full of zombie I met a strange lady She made me nervous She took me in And gave me breakfast And she said Do you come from a land Down Under Where women glow And men plunder? Can't you hear Can't you hear the thunder? You better run, you better take cover (LOW, OMINOUS MUSIC) (NORTH AMERICAN ACCENT) How offline is offline? (NORTH AMERICAN ACCENT) Think about the middle of nowhere and then double the nothing.
Becca, no.
Come on! (LAUGHS) This is our chance to get away from that stuff.
Just ditch 'em.
Doesn't that feel better? If you're happy, I'm happy.
- MAN: G'day, mate.
- G'day.
Yeah, so our transport today is a converted MAN TGM, seating up to 22 passengers.
- How you going? - Good, thanks! I was just saying, our transport today is a converted MAN TGM, seating up to 22 passengers.
- Oh, right.
The the bus? - Yeah, yeah.
Comes with a flexible ladder frame, live front and rear axles and long travel springs.
MAN: Right.
MAN 2: It's also got an enclosed drive shaft.
MAN: Hey, mate.
How you goin'? - Beauty.
Go get comfortable.
- Hey.
Hi.
Hi.
How you going? I'll take those for you.
Thank you.
- It's Richie, isn't it? - Yes.
- Yeah.
Davo.
- How ya goin'? You know a fair bit about the bus, mate.
- RICHIE: Yeah, no, definitely.
- Great! Hey, guys.
How are ya? - Excellent.
- Yeah, no, I like all coaches.
We've got Volvos in New Zealand.
- DAVO: Okay? - Yeah, both TLs and the REs.
But no converted TGMs, so That's why I'm here.
What, you're here for the bus? You're not here to see the majestic Australian outback? RICHIE: Well, you know, to see it from a cloth-covered reclinable MAN TGM seat, through double-glazed tinted windows, yes.
Well, I guess it is a fairly unique experience.
- No, no.
Just unique, actually.
- Eh? Well, there are no degrees of uniqueness.
I mean, something's either unique or it isn't.
You know, like the Karosa single-deck B 741 is unique to Czechoslovakia.
DAVO: Okay, yeah.
Right.
So, Richie, I'm guessing that you're here on your own, mate, 'cause you don't have a partner.
- Correct.
Yep.
Yep.
- Right.
I mean, I did have a girlfriend once.
- Who you met on a bus? - Yeah! Yeah! - It was a Volvo B10L.
Yeah.
- Right.
We used to catch it to work together, for a while.
But then she got her licence.
Yeah.
Didn't really see her much after that.
- No? - Don't know why.
- I tried calling.
- Yeah? Yeah.
Yeah, but then Mum said not to worry.
She said sometimes, you know, some people are just like that.
- Yeah.
- So - Anyway, here I am.
- Great! Well, lucky us, eh? - Yep.
That's all right.
- I'll get that.
Chuck that in and, oh, yeah, balance it up.
- No, it's good.
- Beautiful.
Righto, mate.
Well, thanks, Richie, for your help.
Jump on and I'll - You right with the - Yeah, all good.
- All good, thanks, buddy.
- Little cord there.
That's great.
Thank you, mate.
Nice packing.
- Whoops.
- Oopsie! That's it.
Oh, jam 'em in.
Good work.
- Yep.
It'll be a good one.
- All set? (TOURISTS CHATTER) Yeah! Alrighty! How are we all, gang? All good? - MAN: We're good.
- DAVO: Excellent.
Well, uh, look, welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to this outback tour of central Australia.
My name's Ian Davison, but you can call me Davo.
- Davo.
- Hey, Davo! DAVO: Nice one.
Thank you.
Now, I'm gonna be your driver and guide for the next two weeks.
Just doing a quick head count, and we are just still waiting on a couple of passengers.
So, in the meantime, when I call your name off the manifest, why don't you tell us where you're from and maybe a little interesting fact about yourself.
WOMAN: (NORTH AMERICAN ACCENT) We can make it! Let's go! Oh, Jesus! - MAN: Hey! - WOMAN: Sorry! Oh, man.
That guy came out of nowhere.
(NORTH AMERICAN ACCENT) Kel, it was just the cleaner.
He should wear a bell or something.
Almost had a fucking heart attack.
I don't want that to happen right now.
Can we slow down? Wait.
Where do we go? That way? No, come on! Richie Langman.
Oh.
Yep.
Thanks.
Um Hi.
My name's Richie.
I come from Blenheim, in New Zealand.
That's terrific.
Thanks, Richie.
Good on you, mate.
Uh - WOMAN: Oh, my God! - Hello.
- Sorry.
Sorry.
- That's all right.
No worries.
Just duck down the back.
Pop your bag down there.
DAVO: Get comfy.
- Hello.
- Hi.
Sorry.
- That's okay.
- Sorry, everyone.
Oh! DAVO: No worries.
We weren't gonna leave without ya.
Just throw your big bag up there and we'll sort that out later.
All right, gang, our next intrepid traveller is Mr Wade Chedi.
Hey, guys.
Uh, my name's Wade, and I am from Adelaide! - Yoww! - MAN: Hello.
DAVO: Good stuff, mate.
Excellent.
Now, the next group is the Weber family.
(GERMAN ACCENT) Oh, 'Veber'.
'Veber'.
The 'Veber' family.
- 'Veber'? - Ja, ja.
Oskar, Nina and Emma.
DAVO: Nice to meet you, guys.
Excellent.
All right, guys, now, most importantly, who is up for an outback adventure? (ALL CHEER) Excellent! Rightio.
Let's get it going, eh? SONG: I'm going up the country Ladies and gentlemen, we're gonna be travelling due north out of Adelaide now.
We're gonna stop for lunch at a place called Port Augusta.
Now, Port Augusta was founded in 1852, named after Lady Augusta Young.
Who was the wife of the state governor, Sir Henry Young.
(LAUGHS) Who is that? I knew that.
- Thank you! (LAUGHS) - Thanks, Richie.
Out of a job! And then tonight, we're gonna stop at a great little spot called Gemini Creek.
And we've got some awesome places lined up for you, guys.
Sunrises and sunsets and, oh, rivers and desert and bush and crazy wildlife.
Look You name it, Australia's bloody got it.
- (ALL CHEER) - DAVO: Let's do it! I've got a good feeling about this one, gang! - You're into it, yeah? - I am into it.
Yeah.
I'm gonna leave the city, got to get away I'm gonna leave the city, got to get away All this fussing and fighting Man, you know I sure can't stay (PHONE BUZZES) (LAUGHS) Put it back in? Can you just not get mad? I ain't mad.
And you better take it.
I'll be, like, five seconds.
Go for it.
I'm not stopping you.
- (PHONE BEEPS) - Look.
Off.
MAN: That must've been so hard for you.
(WHISPERS) You're such an asshole.
(LAUGHS) Ohh! to the wilds of South Australia? Uh well, we normally have a week in Paris and do the Louvre, that sort of thing, but, uh, this time, Bec suggested a challenge.
REBECCA: Yeah, Danny's more a fishing-trip-with-the-guys kind of person, so I wanted to go somewhere he'd love.
How thoughtful of you.
What about you? You just felt the magnetic pull of raw nature? No, uh Once a year, I search for cheap flights online and and just try and go somewhere completely different.
Really? That random? Variety's the spice of life and all that.
Interesting.
('APRIL SUN IN CUBA' BY DRAGON PLAYS) - Uh, hi, guys.
- How you going? I'm Steve, and this is my partner, Johnny.
Hey.
Hi.
We were just wondering about your your accent.
- Actually, we made a bet.
- We did.
What do you call sophisticated Americans with health cover? - Canadians.
- Ohh, Canadians! - Born and bred, yep.
- STEVE: Yes! KELLY: Nice to meet you.
Kelly.
NINA: Have you been to Australia before? MAN: No, ma'am.
You? Ja.
We have lived here for 10 years.
But we have never gone bush.
It seemed like a shame to sit at home with all this to explore.
That's what brought me out here.
I had to get out of my comfort zone.
Ja.
Australia is so beautiful.
We can't just wait around, regretting what we didn't do, can we? DAVO: Tomorrow night, we're gonna camp out under the stars.
I can guarantee that you have never seen the Milky Way like you're gonna see it out here.
Mother Nature really does put on quite a spectacular show.
Take me to the April sun Come on, take me Take me to the April sun REBECCA: Thanks, Davo.
- A photo? - Oh! - Doo-doo-doo-doo - Wow! Incredible! (INDISTINCT CHATTER) - Wow! - Oh, my God! - OSKAR: It's incredible! - Hi, Mum! - Hi, Mum.
- (LAUGHS) (SIGHS) (CAMERA CLICKS) - WOMAN: Thank you! - (CAMERA CLICKS) "Welcome to the Flinders Ranges, gateway to the outback.
" NINA: Smile, Emma.
Good.
(LAUGHS) In the olden days, they used to dig into this with hand tools, ja? Sometimes they went down to 50 metres.
EMMA: Hmm.
(INDISTINCT CHATTER) (CAMERA CLICKS) Hey.
Could you take a photo of me, please? (CAMERA CLICKS) (LAUGHS) Face that way.
Look at me.
- (CAMERA CLICKS) - Awesome.
- How about a smile? - (LAUGHS) - There we go.
- (CAMERA CLICKS) - These are awesome.
- Yeah? Yeah, yeah, definitely.
Check that out.
Oh, wow.
Great.
One of these is totally a profile pic.
- You look beautiful.
- Thank you.
No, no, thank you.
- How you going, Wade? - Good, man.
- Oh! Wow.
They're gorgeous.
- I I agree.
- (LAUGHS) - I agree.
(LAUGHS) Will you stop being such a child? Hey.
You all good? Boys.
You know.
Boys.
(LAUGHS) Righto, guys.
Should we jump back on? EMMA: You're, like, really good at photography.
WADE: Thank you.
DAVO: All aboard.
(UNSETTLING MUSIC) (BIRD SQUAWKS) Uh, Iveco, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo.
That's amazing.
You ever driven a Scania? Yeah.
Yeah, I did, actually.
The Volgren.
- K113TR? - Uh, yeah.
Yeah, that's right.
Yeah, they were a bloody nice coach.
Awesome.
And then, is that your parents up there? Yeah.
Dad's idea of a farewell tour.
He works in mining and they've called him back to Bonn, so Mum says I gotta finish school back in Germany.
- So lame.
- Oh, wow.
That's awesome.
I would kill to live in Germany.
- Right? - Yeah.
Absolutely.
- Really? - Totally.
Germans are the coolest.
You know, they basically invented beer.
(WOMAN LAUGHS) She she's 15! - That's true.
- And so much more.
They have an amazing art scene, like, awesome bands, fashion, photography.
- I think you'll really like it.
- Yeah, it's great.
I mean, I guess that's kinda cool.
So, what do you get when you cross a German and a man? - BOTH: What? - A Ger-man.
(ALL LAUGH) - That's terrible! - You're so lame! DANNY: Oh, God, I hope this trip doesn't go all college grads and spring break.
Three girls, one guy.
Looks like trouble waiting to happen.
(ALL LAUGH) It'll sort itself out in the end.
Might be a few broken hearts along the way, but people are very good at sticking themselves back together.
So, what's your line of work? - I'm a psychiatrist.
- Private practice? Forensic.
I work a lot in the prison system, assessing inmates.
- Oh! That sounds like fun.
- It has its moments.
I'm mostly concerned with the environmental factors that promote violent behaviour.
- It can be genetic.
- Yes, partly.
What, there's a gene for violence? Yeah.
It's called the warrior gene.
It regulates dopamine and some other stuff.
So if one of the alleles is 30 bases shorter and you've suffered abuse as a child Then you're probably one of my subjects.
Yeah, so whether it seems reasonable to murder people actually all depends on your genes.
You're very well versed on the subject.
Medical background? Science.
I'm a geneticist.
I launched a start-up two years ago.
- Really? - Yeah.
It's still going.
Just.
So when people say, like, he or she is somewhere on the spectrum, my company, hopefully, can pinpoint where.
Sounds fascinating.
- They're doing amazing work.
- Thank you.
We must swap emails before the trip's over.
- Yeah.
Sounds good.
- Sure.
DAVO: Righto, guys and girls, who wants one more song? (CHEERING AND APPLAUSE) (TOURISTS CHATTER) MAN: A little something-something? - What have we got? - DAVO: Right.
So Australia's three great contributions, plastic money, wi-fi and insect repellent.
- Ah, nice one.
- Whoo! You're gonna need it out here, you guys, 'cause the mozzies get as big as Cessnas.
- I'll grab that.
- Thanks, Richie.
Um, we're gonna get an early start tomorrow, gang.
Look, just one last thing.
If you have to leave your tent at night, just be careful of snakes, okay? And if you do get bitten, um, just use a bandage to put pressure on it, don't wash it.
They'll need to take the saliva from around the bite wound to determine what type of snake it was.
If it was a brown, for example.
They're the deadliest snakes in the world.
I mean, they're all around here.
Try and avoid 'em, at least, 'cause that would pretty much end the trip.
(LAUGHTER) - Great.
- That's just terrific.
That's that's really good news.
DAVO: I'll leave you with that one, you guys.
- Sleep well.
- Goodnight.
- Is he joking? - Um No, mate, no.
- I really don't think he is.
- No.
- Tent? - God, yes.
- Okay.
Goodnight.
- 'Night.
- 'Night.
- Goodnight - Goodnight.
- Goodnight.
- Goodnight.
- Goodnight, fellas.
- Goodnight - Goodnight.
Sleep well.
We should probably turn in too.
- Can I just finish this? - Sure.
- Goodnight.
- Goodnight.
Are you all right? Is it that obvious? (LAUGHS) Are you married, or were you, ever? Yes, I was, but not for long.
Long enough to know a happy one needs constant work.
Yeah, exactly.
Hence the camping adventure he'd normally do with his buddies? Hence the camping adventure.
(LAUGHS) It's me.
It's, um It's this start-up I was telling you about.
It just sucks up all my time and energy.
And I really thought he was okay with it, and then just He just gave me the ultimatum and I was in total shock.
Still am.
(LAUGHS) Anyway, I should have known to save more time for us, but I just Oh, this is so boring.
Are you gonna bill me for this? Would that be a problem? REBECCA: Okay, I'm turning in.
Um I shouldn't have had this conversation.
What conversation? 'Night.
Goodnight.
My parents split up about 10 years ago, so I went to live with my dad.
He got remarried to a lady who's a pretty strict Muslim.
And because of her, he got really devout.
I wind up couch-surfing then realised I had to come up with a way to pay rent.
And the one thing I love is to travel, so turned it into a business.
I'd love to get out of my place.
My parents don't get anything.
How do you make money off of a blog? Advertising.
And it comes easy when you have a million followers.
What? You are famous! I'm internet-famous.
It's nothing.
- You'll have to 'like' me.
- I do.
I mean, I will.
I will.
Right now.
(PHONE BEEPS) There's no reception.
Yeah.
(LAUGHS) (LAUGHS) Goodnight.
(ALL SPEAK INDISTINCTLY) - REBECCA: They're a good bunch.
- DANNY: Yeah.
Brian's an interesting guy.
Yeah, he's nice.
- Is it cosy? - (GRUNTS) Why don't you get in and find out? No, just leave that open.
Nice to have some air come in.
Here you go.
- You good? - Yeah.
(SIGHS) So You think you'll survive the whole fortnight? Yes! I'm actually really enjoying it.
- Yeah? - Yeah.
What is that? I don't know, it was just probably someone with a flashlight.
- No.
Everybody's in bed.
- Danny, can you not? - There are snakes and stuff - I just want to have a look.
- What the hell was that? - I have no idea.
(BIRDS WARBLE GENTLY) - REBECCA: Morning! - OTHERS: Morning.
Good morning! JOHNNY: Oh, my God, that smells good! Yeah, no.
It's a really good barbecue, eh? See, the um, cast-iron, um, plate distributes the heat evenly.
Yeah.
No, that's the secret.
So Yeah.
It's good.
- Haven't lost anyone yet? - No, unfortunately.
- Davo, this is incredible.
- Oh, great.
Oh, hey, uh, what were those lights last night? Which lights? The lights that floated through the camp.
They were like two big headlights.
They buzzed right over the tents that way.
Tell me somebody else saw them.
- Anyone? - Saw what? I think Rebecca and Danny saw the min min lights.
Oh, the min mins! Yeah, um, they're these lights that just appear in the sky sometimes.
And they follow you round.
Lot of the Indigenous people think that they date back to the Dreamtime.
Most whiteys think that they're a warning.
But, you know, I think that they're just some sort of natural phenomenon, you know, like ball lightning or the southern aurora, something like that.
DAVO: Don't let 'em put you off your food, guys.
Did you see anything? No.
Nothing.
Yeah, no.
Me neither.
Hey, uh, when you get back online, could you send me those photos that you took yesterday? Yeah.
Um Sure.
I mean, I might have to crop 'em a little bit and add a few filters on.
(LAUGHS) I need some improvement, huh? Well Just a little bit, here and there.
Guys want a plate? DANNY: You've said you've seen 'em before? DAVO: Yeah, we've seen 'em a couple of times before.
DANNY: Here in this area, or? DAVO: No, I think it's just anywhere out, you know, there's a big, you know, vast expanse.
Righto, gang, you might have heard that there's gonna be a comet passing overhead tonight.
Let's do a barbecue dinner at Ikara Gorge.
I'll cook us up a big feast.
It might mean a little bit of a late finish, but I can guarantee that you do not want to miss these fireworks.
It's gonna be spectacular.
So general consensus, what do you reckon? - (ALL CHEER) - Whoo-hoo! Done.
SONG: Call it home Calling it home - (RICHIE GROANS) - Hey, Richie? - Yeah? - Hey, um Mate, I normally wouldn't ask, but I need a little favour, and you're the only one I can trust, mate.
The? Sure! Just keep an eye on it, make sure it doesn't spill.
- Sure.
Sure, yeah.
No worries.
- Thanks, mate.
Can I get you anything? Energy drink? - No, those things keep me awake.
- Oh, righto.
Yeah.
They're also diuretic, so end up having to go to the toilet every couple of hours or something, so - We can't have that, can we? - No.
Oh, perhaps just a juice or a soft drink or something.
- All right, mate.
- Yeah? - Oh, thanks.
- No worries.
- Cool.
Yep.
- Thank you, Richie.

And a couple of horse's hoofs.
Eh? - DAVO: Hey? - Dung punchers.

Eh? I mean, they shit their pants, then they come screaming out of the tent.
- Screaming for their mummies! - (LAUGHS) Talk about a laugh.
Funny! (CHUCKLES) Yeah, no, that's bloody nice, yeah.
I mean I couldn't actually do it with this group.

What, you don't reckon I could take a mob of soft-cock tourists on a real Aussie adventure, eh? Yeah.
No, I just think your mouth might get you into a bit of trouble, mate, that's all.
- Oh, yeah? - You get me drift.
No offence.
No offence taken.

Not anymore.
NINA: Ah.
How long were you together? - 20 years.
- Ooh.
- Since high school.
- Oh.
She was my heart and soul.
Oh.
I'm sorry.
Did she? Uh, pass away? No.
No, no, no, no, no.
We were, uh, separated for over a year, during my first tour of Iraq.
Oh.
War puts a lot of pressure on relationships.
- One of the hidden costs.
- Hmm.
The funny thing is, I could be fearless facing down evil maniacs but, uh never found the courage to speak to my own wife.
- WOMAN: Oh, my God! Oh, my God.
- (TOURISTS LAUGH) - (EMMA SQUEALS) - Hm? - DANNY: Oh, man - My God! I got coverage! - (WOMEN SCREAM) - (WADE LAUGHS) - Hey.
What's happened? - (PHONE BEEPS) - (LAUGHS) - That looked like fun.
(PANTS) Yeah.
Oh, man.
Tell me, um I'm trying to figure it out.
Are you and Michelle, like, together? - What? - You know.
No, no, no.
- We're, like, best friends.
- STEVE: Really? - We go to college together.
- STEVE: Okay.
But you are gay, though, right? (LAUGHS) - Hey, I've had boyfriends.
- Oh! Bless.
(LAUGHS) - Fuck you, man.
- (BOTH LAUGH) Look, it's none of my business, but If you're in love with her, don't sleep with her.
I mean, she might only just be curious, you know? Could ruin your friendship.
Mmm.
Yeah.
Thanks.
KELLY: Is everything okay? Emma's boyfriend just broke up with her.
KELLY: Oh, man.
Hey, you're talking to the right girl.
She's had more break-ups than all the Kardashians put together.
Hey! (LAUGHS) STEVE: Who's hungry? Let's go and get something to eat.

NINA: We are in Adnyamathanha country.
I think this is how you say it.
They are the native landowners.
They have a lot of special places, all over this land, as you would when you have lived on it for thousands of years.
They have some places for secret men's business and some places for secret women's business.
Hmm! God forbid we happen to keep secrets from each other.
What do you mean? Uh Well That was one of the problems Claire and I had, apparently.
- Oh.
- That I didn't open up.
(CHUCKLES) I thought I was just being me.
Well When you get older sometimes a woman can feel her husband doesn't see her anymore.
Well It looks like you got lucky with Oskar.
Ja.
I did.
But what's with the rocks, though? - (LAUGHS) - (CHUCKLES) (BIRD SQUAWKS) (GRIM MUSIC) (TOURISTS LAUGH AND CHATTER) ('WE ARE HERE FOR SUCH A LITTLE WHILE' BY NICK THERRY PLAYS) - She's got some - (NINA SPEAKS INDISTINCTLY) I'm just gonna find Kel and Michelle.

Weird things, though.
Before telescopes, we had no idea.
- Wow.
- No idea.
The ancient Greeks used to think it was a a warning.
- Behave or you'll all be burnt.

- OSKAR: No, no.
They are mostly a giant ball of dust and ice with a tail of water vapour.
That kills the romance.
