Shots of planes. Holly hugs Kathryn and then goes floaty, lying that she's happy for Kathryn, and she's "not going to begrudge her the chance, cuz it's the chance of a lifetime and [she's] excited for her." Holly tells Kathryn to "win," and we get a crazy split-screen montage of Kathryn taking off, with Graham actually flying, of course. The kids watch and point. I guess they've never been to an airport before and seen planes take off. How thrilling. They bank and turn (the plane, not the kids on the ground) and Kathryn tells Graham, "I never thought I could do this...ever." Do what? Sit in an airplane? You ain't flying it, girl. More plane shots. The kids cheering. Now Graham does hand over the lever to Kathryn, telling her to bank the plane towards some sand dunes. Kathryn pulls the fake lever to the right as Graham surreptitiously works the real controls. "That's absolutely wonderful," says Graham, having heard about Kathryn's favor for PudgyInstructor. "You have surprised me." (I'll resist "cockpit" jokes...as long as I possibly can.) Kathryn giggles and says, "This feels really good. I always liked being in control." Kathryn is flirting with Graham? Ew. Ew. The plane lands as Kathryn gives the double thumbs-up.
