Tanya and Mel walk away from the Trans Global hangar, toward the MelMobile.

“I’m too keyed up to sleep,” says Mel. “What about some breakfast?”

“Sounds like a good idea,” says Tanya. “Where should we go?”

Mel stands between Tanya and the MelMobile. “Your apartment?” asks Mel.

Tanya looks at Mel, surprised.

“Well,” says Mel. “You’ve been bragging about your scrambled eggs. It’s time I find out just how good they are.”

An airport worker runs up behind Tanya.

“Mister Bakersfield!” shouts the airport worker, “Maintenance  just called. The big snowblowers got damaged. Mike wants you to take a look and make a decision whether to work overtime to repair them.”

“Tell him to take care of it himself,” says Mel, shutting Tanya’s car door.

“Yes, sir,” says the airport worker. Mel walks around to the driver’s side of the MelMobile, climbs in, and starts the car.  The MelMobile fishtails out to the taxiway as several airliners make use of the now-active Runway Two-Niner.  The theme music rises as the end titles begin.
