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.
