The Gunmen go all MI:2 inside the silo. They're communicating with Yves via some kind of, you know, fancy yet small spy communication thingamabob. She hisses into her collar that they ought to hurry the hell up. They explain that the silo is very complicated and maze-like. Despite that, they find the correct area of the silo after about one second.
Outside in the stands, Yves and Jimmy realize that the silo is just about ready to blow. Yves notices BAS driving off in a huge tow truck, with something all mysteriously shrouded loaded on the back. She tells the Gunmen to get the hell out of the silo. But she's breaking up. It's like she's going through the canyon here in Los Angeles. They can't hear her! Get out! You're breaking up! The car is gone! Huh? The Air Force bigwigs begin the old countdown. Down in the silo, the Gunmen find a big old bunch of nothing. Yves and Jimmy Bond exchange anguished looks. Yves tells them to run for it, as everything blows sky-high. Jimmy looks like his dog just died.
The commercial advertise seven consecutive weeks of all new episodes of The X-Files. My fingers bleed.
Night. Air Force Base. Jimmy, in a wife-beater, weepily attacks a pile of rubble with a pickaxe. Yves perches on the hood of a car and watches. She doesn't look unsympathetic, but calls to him that he's totally wasting his time. Jimmy doesn't care. He's devoted to the pickaxing. As he impotently bangs on the rubble, the Lone Gunmen emerge from the fog, like some kind of fog-emerging supermen. Yves allows a small smile to emerge between her massively distorted lips. Jimmy is stunned and utterly thrilled. He embraces Byers, Langly, and Frohike. Aw, what a cutie-pie. Yves wonders how they escaped the giant and all-encompassing bomb blast. Langly explains that they got out through a ventilation shaft, which eventually surfaced about half a mile away. Under a porta-potty. "Guys, this is wonderful," Jimmy emotes. "Yeah, whoop de doo," Frohike says dryly. "Where's the car?" Yves has no idea.
Guthrie Farm. Farmer Guthrie confesses to the whole crew that he just couldn't deposit the payoff from BAS. He felt far too guilty. He wants Shelly to take the money -- after all, it was her father's invention. Shelly opines that she had no idea the Lone Gunmen would so stupidly risk their lives for a dumb-ass car that ran on water. Well, basically. The Gunmen, as a group, exclaim that they would do it again! Shelly then confesses that the car was at the farm the entire time. She could have told them that before they jumped into a missile silo slated for destruction, doncha think? Shelly explains that she was nosing around the farm this morning and just found it. Um, it's a car, not a missing set of housekeys. How do you just find a car? Whatever. Guthrie pipes up and explains that he thought the vehicle was just a pile of junk. He wanted it hauled away ages ago, but his father would never let him. He explains that his father put a decoy in the silo, and that's what BAS hauled off.
