(Jonas is filming himself pack his suitcase as he talks. Occasionally he shows Daniel asleep on the bed. "Sonny" by the Napoleon Blown Aparts plays in the background.)
Jonas: (voiceover) Okay, so here's what's going on. Daniel conked out. He stayed up all night trying to figure out Bree's code. I tried to stay up with him and help him but, you know, man, that is some complicated stuff Bree and her old man came up with. Anyway, my flux capacitor ran out of uranium at about four and I-I passed out. But the Beast, he cracked it. He woke me up at six and told me we had to get on the road stat so I packed and he fell asleep. I'll just have him explain it when he wakes up.
(Jonas taps Daniel in the face to wake him. Daniel looks around bleary-eyed and tired. Cut to Daniel and Jonas loading bags into an SUV. Cut to Daniel talking from the passenger of the seat.)
Daniel: (to Jonas) Sorry I passed out last night, man. Thanks for packing, though.
Jonas: Hey, no problemo.
Daniel: (to camera) Anyway, last night I was up watching Bree's video. I was putting all these numbers together in my head, trying to make sense of it. I decided to call the number in Bree's video.
Daniel: You know, the uh, dry cleaner's -- Powell. I mean, everything she talked about (cut back to Daniel) seemed to hinge around that. Obviously they weren't open, but when I listened to the (cut back to Bree footage) message there were all these numbers: the... (cut back to Daniel) price for dry cleaning, the store hours, I lined all those numbers up and there was 10 digits. So I dialed those digits. Found a message on a voice mail. It was Bree's dad. I guess she found a way to...to meet her dad. I think what's amazing about this whole thing is that the two of them came up with this elaborate code, without even being able to speak to each other. Anyways, he told her where to meet him. It's, uh, it's kind of in code, but I knew what he meant. (Music starts to play again.) So it's a bit of a trip--
Jonas: Road trip!
(Daniel grins in response. He turns the camera to Jonas who is wearing a cap.)
Jonas: The lure of the open road calls and the blacktop beckons. That's right. (Jonas sniffles) The blacktop it beckons, and we cannot resist. Can we? (teasing) Can we Beast?
Jonas: I'm sorry. I won't do that again.
Daniel: Let's do it.
- In the video, Daniel says he figured out the Bree Phone Home puzzle from Bree's December 18th video with the same title.
- The "flux capacitor" that Jonas mentions is from the movie Back to the Future. The flux capacitor, powered with plutonium, allowed the main characters in the film to travel through time. Although Jonas says his flux capacitor is out of uranium, in fact plutonium can be produced from uranium.
- Daniel's ability to stay awake for at least 14 hours straight while solving puzzles and doing research was previously established in his video Aleister Crowley.
- Some fans were initially confused as to how Jonas could be driving after Bree stole his car. However, the summary of Bree's Gone mentions "one of my cars," implying Jonas has more than one car.
