Elf: Brad, is everybody on the shuttle? We're getting out of here.
Brad: Shep says they're still waiting on seven of us.
Elf: Okay, prep for dustoff. We. . . Wait. . . "Shep says?"

Brad, where are you?

Brad: Me an' Nick are cut off in the aft crew decks. I think they've got tanks, Commander.
Elf: Who else is missing?
Brad: You and Kevyn, Schlock, Pronto and Ennesby. Everyone else is at the shuttle.
Elf: Kevyn. . . What do we do?

Elf: I can't. . . I can't leave anyone behind.
Kevyn: You're not leaving anyone behind.
Kevyn: You're sending everyone else on ahead.
