    Summary
    Vern is at Gate 33, holding Gwen’s hand as she’s wheeled off the Tourist Jetway. Sarah Demerest stands behind a fence, unnoticed, listening in to Vern’s conversation.

    “I’m going to the hospital with her,” says Vern to the airport physician. The doctor signals to the attendants to take her to the ambulance. Vern follows, never noticing Sarah. Sarah watches them leave.

    The scene shifts to the next morning. The 707 from TGA Flight 2 is parked in the TGA hangar. A crowd of people stare up at the starboard tail, including Mel, Tanya, Patroni, Anson Harris, and Cy Jordan.

    An FAA investigator measures the size of the hole blown out of the starboard lavatory.

    Joe Patroni walks under the tail of the 707, swinging a box of cigars that were given to him by Mel. He taps the underside of the aircraft with the cigar box.

    “Nice going, sweetheart,” says Joe.

    Anson Harris talks to Cy Jordan. “Remind me to send a thank-you note to Mister Boeing,” says Harris.

    Mel takes hold of Tanya’s arm and they leave.

    The scene shifts to Gate 33. Peter Coakley is driving a TGA cart carrying Ada Quonsett to the gate agents’ counter. Ada steps out of the cart and proceeds to the counter.

    “Good morning,” says the agent. “First class, or economy?”

    Ada makes an offended expression, and says, “First class!” She then turns to Peter Coakley, frowning. “You know,” she says, “It was much more fun the other way.”

    The scene shifts back to the hangar. Mel and Tanya are walking toward the MelMobile.

    Summary
    Flight Two’s passengers are exiting from the First Class Jetway at Gate 33.

    Suddenly, Inez Guerrero moves a velvet rope set up for crowd control and rushes to the exiting passengers, crying.

    “I’m so sorry!” says Inez. “He didn’t mean it! He didn’t mean it! I’m sorry!” Inez stumbles past the wounded passengers, and walks up to Tanya, who hugs her.

    “Inez…” says Tanya.

    Meanwhile, at the Tourist Jetway,  Dr. Compagno and the nun assisting him exit into the terminal. Compagno meets another man, who shakes his hand.

    “I’m Dr. Nash, the airport physician,” says Nash.  Sarah Demerest appears behind both doctors,  on the other side of a waist-high fence.

    “How do you do, I’m Dr. Compagno,” says Compagno. “It’s one of the stewardesses. She has splinters in the right eye. They may have penetrated.”

    “There’s an ambulance waiting,” says Nash. “I’ll take her right to the hospital. I have an ophthalmic surgeon standing by. Any other complications?”

    “Well,” says Compagno, “she has a fracture of the lower right arm. They’ll probably use a general for that. Before they decide on which type of anesthesia, better tell them that she’s pregnant.”  Sarah Demerest overhears this.

    “Here she comes,” says Compagno to Nash.

    Gwen rolls up the Jetway, strapped to a gurney. She’s bandaged and her head is immobilized. Vern is with her, holding her hand.

    “It’s all right, Captain,” says Nash. “We’ll take care of her.”

    Summary
    Flight Two’s passengers are exiting from the First Class Jetway at Gate 33.

    “A wheelchair!” calls Mel, locking the Jetway door open. Sarah leans over the railing to talk to Stewardess Maria.

    “I’m Mrs. Demerest,” says Sarah. “Is the Captain–”

    “He’ll be coming off the Tourist Jetway,” replies Maria. Maria grabs a wheelchair and heads back down the Jetway.

    Mel turns around and looks at the approaching crowd. “All right, now, move back!” He turns to Ned. “Ned, get these people over there.”

    Ned wades into the crowd. “Step back, alright step back. Those of you who are not helping,  please step back,” he says.

    Meanwhile Tanya is directing passengers to the central area of Gate 33.

    Harry rushes to the Tourist Jetway. “Judy!” he shouts, seeing his niece. He hugs her as the other passengers deplane. Schuyler walks into the terminal, spilling a pile of textbooks on the floor. Behind him, Ada looks around, still wearing the fur coat that covered her on the plane.

    Mrs. Donovan steps forward. “Oh I’m sorry, ” says Mrs. Donovan, “but that’s my coat!”

    Ada looks at her as Mr. Donovan removes the coat from Ada’s shoulders. “I’m sorry, too.”

    The police have set up a velvet rope line for crowd control. Inez walks up to the rope, while looking at the debarking passengers.

Fun Stuff!

Found this podcast after hearing Mark and Jim on the wonderful Indiana Jones Minute. I can’t say enough good things about their podcast. They are funny, informative, a tad silly, and have great rapport with their guests and each other. These guys put out a really great product.

Five Minutes of Mime ,

It's great!

Of all the podcasts covering the movie Airport one minute at a time, Airport Minute is the best!

HinanoGuy ,

My wife sucked me into this

And I can't stop. The first one I heard was #36. Now I have spin back through the first 35! Great way to pass the time as we drive across Nebraska.
