1,041 - Being Rescued

October 10th, 2014

Episode 139 of 465 episodes

Going out into nature can very dangerous. I don’t recommend it, but if you must go, don’t get lost. Find out why in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:32 Explanations: 3:17 Fast dialog: 14:48 Irma: Do you really think we’ll be rescued? It’s been six hours and I’m losing hope. Bert: It’s hard to say. I’m sure search and rescue teams are looking for us as we speak. Irma: But what if they don’t come in time? We didn’t bring any provisions and we’re almost out of water. Bert: You’re afraid of starvation and dying of thirst? I think we’d die from hypothermia or exposure to the elements first. Irma: Thanks. I hadn’t thought of that until you mentioned it. Hey, I think that’s the sound of a helicopter. Bert: You’re hearing things. That’s not a helicopter. Irma: I think I hear search and rescue dogs. I think they’re onto our scent! Bert: I think you’re starting to hallucinate. I don’t hear anything. Irma: Can’t you just humor me? I’m trying to keep hope alive. Bert: Oh, sure. Hey, I think I hear something. Irma: You do? Bert: Yeah, it’s Santa Claus on his sleigh. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
