Kowalski:
Dr. Stone, do you copy? Repeat, do you copy?

Ryan:
Yes! Yes! I copy, I'm here.

Kowalski:
Flash your light so I can see you.

Ryan:
[waving her flashlight] Here. Here.

Kowalski:
There you are. Hang tight. Report your status.

Ryan:
I'm fine.

Kowalski:
Your status. Give me your readings

Ryan:
3.5 psi, I think.

Kowalski:
Give me your O2.

Ryan:
It's going down fast, 9... no, 8%.

Kowalski:
All right, you're breathing too fast. You're burning oxygen, and we don't want to do that. We want to relax. Copy?

Ryan:
Sorry, yes. Copy.

Kowalski:
I'm nearly there.

Ryan:
Please hurry.

Kowalski:
You can holster that torch, Dr. Stone.

Ryan:
Right, sorry.

[Ryan slips the light back into her side pouch just as Kowalski appears as if from nowhere and grabs her.]

Kowalski:
Gotcha. All right, now I'm going to tether you to me. I know you never realized how devastatingly good looking I am. But I need you to stop staring and help me with the tether. Okay?

Ryan:
Okay. Okay. Okay. Okay, I got it.

Kowalski:
[clips his tether to Ryan] All right, here we go. Now to clear you from the jets, I'm gonna give you a little push.

Ryan:
No, no, no, no--!

Kowalski:
A nudge.

Ryan:
No, no, no, no, no, damn it, no!

[The tether tenses and she stops nine feet away from Kowalski.]

Kowalski:
See? Where you go, I go. Better. Let's get out of here.

[Using his thrusters, Kowalski jets away, dragging Ryan with him.]

Ryan:
Ahh! Damn it!

Kowalski:
I know what you mean.

Ryan:
Damn it!

Kowalski:
You're burning oxygen. We're going back to the Shuttle, how's that for a plan, copy?

Ryan:
F***!

Kowalski:
Right, copy that.

Kowalski:
Ryan, do you hear me? Do you copy?

Ryan:
My CO2 alarm went off. My CO2 alarm went off.

Kowalski:
Look, you need to board the station. Do you see the airlock? Hey, Ryan. You copy? Look for the airlock. It's above you, next to the Zarya module. You see it?

Ryan:
Yes, I see it. I see it.

Kowalski:
All right, good. That's where you want to go. Now, you're getting lightheaded, right?

Ryan:
Yeah. Yes.

Kowalski:
That's because you're breathing CO2. You're losing consciousness. You need to board the station.

Ryan:
Okay.

Kowalski:
Now, that second Soyuz is too damaged for re-entry but it's perfectly fine for a little Sunday drive. Look to the West. You see that dot in the distance? That's the Chinese station. You're gonna take the Soyuz and you're gonna cruise over there. The Chinese lifeboat is a Shenzou.

Ryan:
I've never flown a Shenzou.

Kowalski:
It doesn't matter. It's reentry protocol is identical to the Soyuz.

Ryan:
Okay.

Kowalski:
You never flown the Soyuz either?

Ryan:
Only a simulator.

Kowalski:
Well, then you know.

Ryan:
But I crashed it.

Kowalski:
It's a simulator. That's what it's designed for.

Ryan:
Every time. I crashed it every time.

Kowalski:
You point the damned thing at Earth. It's not rocket science. And by this time tomorrow, you're gonna back in Lake Zurich with a hell of a story to tell. You copy? Ryan, you copy?

Ryan:
I'm gonna take the Soyuz and come get you.

Kowalski:
No, you're not.

Ryan:
I'm coming to get you.

Kowalski:
I've got to much of a head start on you.

Ryan:
I'm coming to get you.

Kowalski:
I'm afraid that ship already sailed. Ryan, you're gonna have to learn to let go.

Ryan:
But I--

Kowalski:
I want to hear you say you're gonna make it. Come on, Ryan. Say it.

Ryan:
I'm gonna make it.

Kowalski:
All right. Keep going. What kind of name is Ryan for a girl?

Ryan:
Dad wanted a boy.

Kowalski:
Are you close to the airlock?

Ryan:
Not yet.

Kowalski:
Keep going. So now that we have some distance between us, you're attracted to me, right?

Ryan:
What?

Kowalski:
Well, people say I have beautiful blue eyes.

Ryan:
You have beautiful blue eyes.

Kowalski:
I have brown eyes. Hey, you want to know the good news?

Ryan:
What?

Kowalski:
I'm gonna break Anatoly's record, and I think mine's gonna stand for a long, long time.

Ryan:
Oh, no. I'm coming to get you.

Kowalski:
Oh, my God...

Ryan:
What?

Kowalski:
Wow. Hey, Ryan?

Ryan:
Yeah?

Kowalski:
You should see the sun on the Ganges. It's amazing.

Kowalski:
Houston, I have a bad feeling about this mission.

Mission Control:
Please elaborate.

Kowalski:
It's the same feeling I had about Mardi Gras in 1987.

Mission Control:
That is affirmative. Surprisingly, Control hasn't heard the Mardi Gras story. Please proceed.

Kowalski:
Well, it's day one and I'm bumping my way down Bourbon Street looking for a sister of a friend of mine. The streets are full of people, I'm thinking there's no way I'm gonna find this girl...

Ryan:
Proceeding to override.

Kowalski:
Then all of a sudden, I look up, and there she is, and I'm about to yell out and I see she's holding hands with a short hairy guy in board shorts and a Margaritaville shirt. And then I realize that this guy is not a guy, that my girl is holding hands with a—

Mission Control:
ISS, this is Houston. Explorer, this is Houston.

Explorer Captain:
Go ahead, Houston.

Mission Control:
Mission abort. Repeat, mission abort. Initiate emergency disconnect from Hubble. Begin re-entry procedure. ISS, initiate emergency evacuation.

Explorer Captain:
Copy all, Houston, and in work. Matt, immediate return to Explorer. Repeat, immediate return to Explorer.

Kowalski:
Copy, Explorer, prep airlock.

Explorer Captain:
Airlock engaged. Ready to receive.

Kowalski:
Houston, elaborate.

Mission Control:
Debris from the missile strike has caused a chain reaction, hitting other satellites and creating new debris. Travelling faster than a high-speed bullet up towards your altitude. How copy?

Kowalski:
Copy all. [to Ryan] Put a bow on it, Dr. Stone.

Ryan:
I can't. The board is still initializing.

Kowalski:
I'm not gonna ask you again.

Ryan:
One second.

Kowalski:
Not one second, now. Shut it down. That's an order!

Ryan:
Okay, I'm sorry. I'm sorry, I'm done, I'm done.

Explorer Captain:
Kowalski, initiate emergency disconnect from the Hubble.

Kowalski:
[thrusts himself to the base of the Hubble] All right, Shariff, let's do this.

Shariff:
Roger, Matt.

Kowalski:
Houston, update.

Mission Control:
Well, we have a full-on chain reaction. It's been confirmed that it's the unintentional side effect of the Russians striking one of their own satellites.

Shariff:
They shot down their own satellite?

Kowalski:
Right of disposal. Most likely a spy sat gone bad. Now it's shrapnel. Explorer, ready to disengage H.S.T.

Explorer Captain:
Locks releasing in three, two, one.

[The locks attaching the Hubble to Explorer release. Matt and Shariff give the Hubble a push away from the cargo bay]

Mission Control:
Explorer, new data coming through.

Kowalski:
What's the blowback, Houston?

Mission Control:
It's not good. Most of our systems are gone. Debris chain reaction is out of control and rapidly expanding. Multiple satellites are down and they keep on falling.

Kowalski:
Define multiple satellites.

Mission Control:
Most of them are gone. Telecommunication systems are dead. Expect a communications blackout at any moment.

Ryan:
Kowalski, visual of debris at nine o'clock.

Kowalski:
Half of North America just lost their Facebook.

Mission Control:
Explorer, repeat, expect a communications blackout at any moment.

Explorer Captain:
Copy that, Houston.

[A piece of a BSE satellite, spirals toward them]

Kowalski:
Explorer, this is Kowalski, confirming visual contact with debris, debris is from a BSE sat.

Shariff:
Heads up!

[More debris begins hurtling by at high speeds]

Kowalski:
To repeat, I have—

Ryan:
Dr. Stone requesting faster transport.

Kowalski:
We have to go, we have to go, go, go!

Mission Control:
Kennedy reports meteorological conditions no-go for re-entry— [transmission cuts off]

Explorer Captain:
Houston, Explorer. Copy.

Ryan:
Explorer, Dr. Stone requesting faster transport to bay area. Explorer, do you copy?

Kowalski:
Explorer, permission to retrieve Dr. Stone.

Explorer Captain:
You are a go, Kowalski. Houston, this is Explorer, copy? We've lost Houston. We've lost Houston.

[Kowalski thrusts himself over to Ryan]

Kowalski:
Unstrap. Look, we need to get the hell out of here.

Shariff:
Need some help there, Matt?

Kowalski:
No, don't wait for us.

[A piece of debris strikes Shariff in the head, killing him instantly]

Ryan:
It's stuck!

Kowalski:
Man down! Man down!

Explorer Captain:
Houston, this is Explorer, copy? Houston, this is Explorer, copy? Kowalski, report—

[A large piece of debris pierces strikes the right wing of Explorer, shattering it, and the shuttle begins to roll, carrying Ryan with it]

Kowalski:
Explorer has been hit! Explorer, do you read? Explorer, over? Explorer!

[Another piece of debris hits the robotic arm and detaches it from the shuttle. The broken piece of the arm spins away with Ryan attached to it]

Kowalski:
Astronaut is off structure, Dr. Stone is off structure! Dr. Stone, detach!

Dr. Stone:
No!

Kowalski:
You must detach. If you don't detach, that arm's gonna carry you too far. Listen to my voice! You need to focus!

Ryan:
I can't!

Kowalski:
I'm losing visual of you. In a few seconds I won't be able to track you. You need to detach. I can't see you anymore! Do it now!

Ryan:
I'm trying, I'm trying...

[Ryan detaches herself from the arm and is sent hurtling into the void of space]

Kowalski:
Houston, I've lost visual of Dr. Stone. Houston, I've lost visual of Dr. Stone.
