Mimi's jogging down a road. She stops at a T intersection and looks around. She repeats Stanley's directions and remembers that she's supposed to look for a sign. Mimi moans and sees a fallen Jericho directional sign. Yeah, well, didn't they do that to keep Ravenwood and other people from finding them? "Oh, GOD, I hate this place!" Mimi bellows to the snowflakes. Heh. Mimi looks both ways and starts jogging again.
Night has fallen, and still the boys do not huddle. Didn't they see The Voyage Of The Mimi? Capt. Granville got hypothermia and two of the crew had to strip and keep him warm. Ben Affleck played the captain's son. Far from huddling, Stanley's off examining his hands for hangnails or something. He calls back to Jake, but Jake is unresponsive. Stanley hops over to him, makes him sit up, and tells him to start talking. Jake shivers that he's sorry for leaving the way he did five years ago. Stanley tells him that it doesn't matter. "I was gonna call," Jake breathes, and mutters that they never got to go backpacking in Costa Rica together. No, Jake just went to South and Central America for other reasons. Stanley promises that they're going to go and learn how to surf and sleep on the beach, just as soon as the planes are "up and running again." By way of keeping Jake awake, Stanley wants to know what Jake's been up to for the past five years. He asks about San Diego: "How was it?" "Warm," Jake shivers. Stanley laughs, "Beaches, blondes, huh?" Jake pops his eyes open with difficulty and tells Stanley that he was flying planes. "Really? That's cool, man, your grandfather would have been psyched, huh?" Stanley says, talking to Jake like he's eight. Stanley wants to know if Jake had a girl in San Diego. "She's dead," Jake shivers. Stanley's momentarily confused, and tells Jake that he can't know that: "It all depends where she was when the bombs went off, right? I mean, she could have made it, right?" Jake insists, "She's dead. It was my fault." Jake wants to lie down and die, but Stanley won't let him, and rocks him back and forth. Okay, so they're sort of huddling now.
Mimi's flashlight finally dies, and instead of keeping it for a weapon, she throws it away. Them cityfolk is smart! Mimi calms herself down and tells herself she has to keep moving. Headlights appear down the road. Mimi freezes and remembers what Stanley told her, so she runs to the side of the road and dives out of sight. Or maybe she falls. Can't be sure. The car stops, and people get out. "Please don't hurt me! Please don't hurt me! PLEASE DON'T HURT ME!" Mimi shrieks. It's Mom and Dad. Mimi hugs Mom and shrieks with relief. They all get into the car. And there's very little in the way of shrieking.
