BATTLE! BATTLE! WAKE UP! SNAP OUT OF IT MAN!
Boyd: BATTLE! YOU BLACKED OUT THERE! WE NEED TO MAKE OUR MOVE...NOW!
Smitty: Oh, yeah...sorry! Dr....BABE! You up for some runnin'?
Francis: FRANCIS! And I made it all the way here, whats a few more meters?
Smitty: Good, because you're the packmule!
*Smitty breaks off two tree branches and and uses some tape from the First Aid kit to create a splint*
That should help take the strain off your ankle alittle...hotness!
Francis: Thank you...?
[She stands up and they hand her a bag filled with MREs, First Aid kits, weapons, and knives...]
Boyd: I'll carry the rest of the stuff...that we can get anyways!
Francis: Err...umm...I know that the Army trains the “best minds alive”, but...how do you two expect to get out of here?
Boyd: Err...ummm...The same way we got...up?
Smitty: Thats a NOGO battle. If we tried to jump out, as SOON as we hit ground, we'd be eaten...This guy HAD to be smarter than THAT...
*Smitty looks around the tree house*
Boyd: What are you doin' battle?
*Francis goes over to the entry/exit point and looks down*
GUYS! I hate to bring down the spirits but... I think THEY are starting to climb UP the tree!
*Boyd goes over to Francis to confirm what she has just seen*
SHE'S RIGHT! THE GEEKS SOMEHOW ARE-
Smitty: GOT IT! SWEET!
*Smitty holds up a crowbar*
Francis: WHAT THE HELL IS A CROWBAR GONNA DO?! UNLESS IT-
Smitty: Thats the problem with you women. You only see the glass half full.
[Smitty fits the crowbars curved head into a previously boarded off area, that was covered by the weapons. He then loosens the boards to reveal a hole with a zipline hanging about 4 feet above it...]
Smitty: The glass itself is just half empty!
Boyd: You doucher! You found a zipline! Good work!
Smitty: ALRIGHT! Ladies first...to include you Boyd.
Boyd: A ha ha, cumstain. Here Dr. You go first!
Francis: But...but...I...I dunno where itll...I mean...
Boyd: Just put your arms on the handles...like this...and hold on tight!
Francis: Li-like this?
Boyd: Yeah, now you're getting it!
Smitty: WE AINT GOT TIME FOR NCO INDUCTION CEREMONIES!
[Smitty kicks Francis forward while she is holding on to the zipper. She flies through the air and into a detached garage....]
Boyd: DAMN IT! SHE screamed! She'll have the whole gamut of em going there now!
Smitty: Well, Battle, your turn!
Boyd: I'd love to...but she took the only zipper.
Smitty: You've got an M4! Use that as a makeshift zipper. I'll follow you right soon!
Boyd: You're right battle. I'll see ya on the other side!
*Boyd hops out the hole with his M4, sliding the way down*
Smitty: And then there was one...
*Just as Smitty is about to get out the window, a hand grabs his ACU top*
Smitty: THE HELL?! GET...OFF...ME...YOU-!
*Another arm grabs on to his top*
Smitty: NO! I WON'T BE KILLED...BY...YOU FREAKS!
[Smitty works one of his arms free, dropping his weapon. He then reaches for the zipper of his ACUS and unzips his top and slides out of it, just as one of the dumbies is about to bite his ear. He grabs his gun, diving out the window, barely making it on the zipline...]
