Also? Racing Stripes looks like ass. Was this a movie that really needed to be made? I mean, really. There will never be another Babe, people. Even the sequel to Babe couldn't be another Babe. God.
Back from the break, Sloane gets a call from Vaughn informing him that Jack and Nadia have arrived and they're all heading after Bishop and Syd. Wow. They got to Spain in under ten minutes. That's impressive. "Tesseract Airlines: When you absolutely, positively need to get to the other side of the world in ten minutes or less." In a warehouse somewhere, Weiss and Syd are both tied up to chairs. Syd slowly wakes up, a bit of blood in the corner of her mouth. Bishop is yammering at them about the destroyed Valta and how the Barenakedladies will kill him when they show up, unless he can provide them with information of similar or greater value. He wants to know how the CIA infiltrated the Barackobama's network. Bishop then leans over and delivers the famous line from the preview: "So, what's your real name, Charlene?" "I'm, uh…" "'I'm, uh' what?" "I'm a-gonna kick your ass." But instead of kicking his ass, Syd just gets smacked by him. Well, that was anti-climactic.
Weiss shouts at Bishop that he's a son of a bitch, which he is, and Bishop just points a gun at him. He shoots and the bullet skims the top of Weiss's shoulder. Bishop vows that the next one is going between his eyes. The phone on one of the henchmen rings and he picks up. The Ballyhootenannys have called. Bishop grabs the phone and goes to deal with the call, instructing the henchman to shoot Syd or Weiss in the kneecaps if they get out of line. Syd gives Weiss a look and he totally gets it. Syd uses the laser watch (that somehow has magically returned to her wrist) to work on her bindings as Weiss fakes a heart attack. The henchman walks over, totally ignoring Bishop's rule about the whole kneecap-shooting thing, and checks on Weiss. ["Second time this week that trick worked on gullible guards. Smarten up, TV henchmen, damn." -- Sars] Weiss kicks the baddie in the balls and Syd frees herself at the same time.
And then they fight.
Syd finishes the fight with a great roundhouse floor kick to the head and moves over to release Weiss. He's all, uh, dude? I thought you weren't with the agency anymore. Syd's all, yeah, I'll, uh, I'll tell you later, dude. Thanks for the distraction. Weiss is all, no problem. Oh, and thanks for saving my life. Weiss picks up the baddie's dropped gun and Syd finds another gun on the guy as Weiss suddenly wakes up and realizes that this whole thing is black ops and is Vaughn part of this too? Syd's all, dude? Now is not the time for talking! Now is the time for running! Weiss finally gets with the program and they run off.
