(The camera pans down from the sky to a hospital and zooms in on the entrance.)
Jonas: Hmm? (Turns the camera to Jennie.)
Jennie: You sure Steve's okay?
Jonas: Well, his cell phone goes straight to voicemail, but the hospital said he was being released... I'm sure he's pissed off that we left him behind, but, well, physically? Yeah. I, uh, think he's okay.
Jennie: That's not what I meant. You just seem so sure we can trust him.
Jonas: Oh, Jennie, please. Come on, not you, too. Alright, look: without Steve, I wouldn't have made it in London.
Jennie: Right. I saw how you made it.
Jonas: Oh-ho-ho-ho; that is not fair. That is not fair and you know it.
Jennie: Isn't it? (Scoffs.) You said you were going to London to deal with your past so that you could move on.
Jonas: Yeah, and I meant it. I-I j- Look, I swear!
Daniel: Hey, hey, hey... (Jonas pans to Daniel sitting the car looking at his laptop.) The partial license plate we got? Jennie was right; the Cali Zed means it's a California government plate. But the EPS prefix? That's secret service issue.
Daniel: Meaning whoever tried to kill us yesterday is high up in the government. We gotta get outta here.
Jennie: I think it's too late.
(Jonas pans over to see a black SUV approaching the hospital.)
Jennie: Oh god, it's so close...
Jonas: Whoah, it's the same car! Get down!
Daniel: We gotta go. We can come back.
Jonas: No. What if Steve comes out? We can't leave him again. Jennie, Jennie.
(Daniel groans and Jonas hands his phone to Jennie. She calls Steve while watching the car.)
Jennie: No, it just went straight to voicemail.
Daniel: Oh my god...
(Jonas pans up to the SUV in front of the hospital.)
Jonas: He's circling. Shit!
(Cut to Steve on his cell phone, standing in front of the hospital entrance.)
Jennie: Look, there's Steve right there! He's on the phone.
Daniel: Okay, give me the camera.
(Jonas gives the camera to Daniel.)
Jonas: Alright, I gotta get to Steve before this car circles again.
Jennie: No, no, no! He's coming back!
(Jonas ducks near a car as the SUV passes in front of the hospital again.)
Jonas: Okay, I'm going.
(Jonas runs across the street, with Daniel and Jennie following. He runs to Steve and they run back to the parking lot. Jonas leads them to duck behind a tree as the SUV passes by again.)
Jennie: (Whispering.) Okay, he's coming back... (The SUV leaves.) Okay. Okay, I got the license plate.
Steve: What's going on?
Daniel: Come on, let's go.
Steve: What happened?
Daniel: Let's go!
(Jonas leads the way back to the car. Jonas works on opening the driver's side door and Steve stops.)
Jonas: Let's go, man-
Steve: What the hell's going on?
Jonas: Just get in the car!
(Daniel races around to get into the car. Cut to a shot of a seagull flying near the moon in the sky. Waves are heard as the seagull flies to a flock on the sand. Cut to a pan shot of the beach. Cut to Jonas talking to the camera.)
Jonas: Hey, Steve? Um, listen, I just want to explain. Yesterday? It was chaos and w- and we called 911 and... and we went back for you, but... you know, you were gone.
Steve: I know, mate.
Jonas: You just-
Steve: You came back for me today, am I right? (Jonas smiles and Steve turns the camera on himself.) Am I right? (Turns the camera back to Jonas, who laughs.)
Jonas: Alright, well, cheers to that. (Clinks his bottle of beer with the camera.)
(Cut to Gina, Daniel, and Jennie talking on the beach. Steve zooms out and steps in front of the camera.)
Steve: Daniel got in touch with their friend - Taylor, I think the name was - uh, in Texas. Some computer hacker genius. He's given her the license plate number to see what she can do with it. Who's ever after us means business. But until then, it's mas cerveza.
(Steve smiles and lowers the camera. Cut to Jennie filming as Daniel, Gina, Jonas, and Steve have a picnic on the beach.)
Jennie: Hey, guys!
(Jennie sets the camera down and goes to sit behind Steve.)
Steve: So, cheers to America, land of burgers and fries. 'Cept actually all I've eaten so far is Mexican.
Jonas: Uh, yeah, well, I had to eat that dessert; the, uh... (Laughs.) You know, I'm not even gonna say the name of it.
Steve: "Spotted dick"?
Jonas: Yeah. (Everyone laughs.) I don't get you English. You have a dessert called "dick". It's weird. It's not right.
Steve: It was good, though, wasn't it?
Jonas: Can we please not talk about spotted dick? (Everyone laughs.) You know, when I was in London, I had to eat that. You come here, you eat like a king for five bucks, man.
Steve: I admit, these spicy tacos washed down with a nice Mexican beer... (Drinks from his bottle.) Cold beer, hot food... I could get used to this. (Looks around.) And this.
Steve: Cheers. (Clinks bottles with Jonas.)
- Daniel is still drinking despite his problems in Beach Party.
- Daniel wears a cap.
- TAAG is shown on the beach; proximity to water has been thematically linked to imminent danger in previous videos.
- TAAG's nonchalant attitude towards Steve's trip to the hospital is inconsistent with previous videos, notably Flesh Wound, in which they were so afraid of the Order finding them at a hospital, they took Jonas to the veterinarian after he stabbed his hand.
- "Mas cerveza" is Spanish for "more beer."
