[[Emily von Schnagel and Flavoura Filligree have returned to their time capsule, and are about to climb back inside.]]
Flavoura: Well, if we're going to LEAVE I suggest we do it PROMPTLY!! Those look like more SOLDIERS over there, Emily!!

Emily: But, I don't know how to WORK this thing, Flavoura!! If I enter the wrong COORDINATES we may wind up just about ANYWHERE!!

Voice 1: [from outside] What IS that thing, Lieutenant?!
Voice 2: [from outside] Don't know, Johnson!!
Voice 3: [from outside] Should we SHOOT IT, sir?!
Voice 2: [from outside] No~!! Not unless it MOVES!!
Voice 4: [from outside] I don't think it's one of OURS, sir~!!
Voice 2: [from outside] It's definitely NOT one of OURS!!

[[Outside, the lieutenant considers his options and issues an order.]]
Lieutenant: We should take it back to the base and let someone higher-up deal with it!! Klonsky!! Radio H.Q.!! Tell them to send a flatbed and a crane!!

[Later, inside the capsule.]]
Flavoura: Are we MOVING?!?
Emily: I think so!!

Flavoura: What'd you suppose the'll DO to us when they get us back to their base?!
Emily: I don't know!! But, I don't plan on waiting around to FIND OUT!!!

[[We see the saucer-shaped time capsule covered in a tarp and strapped to the back of a flatbed truck that's speeding through the desert.]]
Emily: [from inside the capsule] The second we're in the clear - I'm TAKING OFF!!
