EXT. SWAMP - NIGHT



Mickey is on all-fours on the bank of the swamp, still covered with the greenish-brown slime. We hear the familiar "GURGLE... GURGLE" sound as he breathes through his snorkel. He tries to stand, and slowly raises up to reveal a SMALL METALLIC OBJECT WITH A TINY, RED BLINKING LIGHT CAUGHT IN HIS SKI VEST. It makes a "BLEEP...BLEEP" SOUND as it blinks.

CLOSE ON MICKEY



He raises his head, and through his slime-covered mask we see an ODD LOOK SLOWLY COME INTO HIS EYES. THEME MUSIC CREEPS IN.

EXT. HOUSEBOAT - LATER

Griffin, Della, and Ally wait anxiously on the front deck. Looking tired and worried, Jerry, Claude, Walter, and Tracy pull in off the dark lake.


claude

We circled around the main section of the lake several times and couldn't see anything. It's pretty dark out there.


ally

I tried to call the Lake Patrol, but I only got a machine...


TRACY

(almost in tears)

He could've fallen off that thing and be floating around out there anywhere.
walter

Aw, he's probably just playing one of his tricks. What a geek.


tracy

Shut up, you little peabrain.


claude and ally

TRACY!
tracy

See! This is one of those times I've been telling you about!...This is why I can't deal with him!
CLAUDE

That's no excuse for you to speak to your brother that way.


tracy

But it's OK for him to speak about Mickey that way? You always side with Walter, and it's just because I'm a woman.


claude

(to Walter)

Button it up, partner...

(to Tracy)

Tracy it's not a question of man or woman, it's a question of acting like an adult...
Griffin breaks in and puts her arm around Tracy.
griffin

...We're all under a lot of stress...


jerry

...We'll just keep looking, that's all.


ally

We could probably all use some coffee before we go back out there.


claude

Good idea. Let's take a break.


They tie off and step across to the houseboat for some coffee.
