Nighttime in the desert. | Zeke: Boy, are we lost. | Meg: Yes. Thank you for trading our compass for Pokémon cards.Bridget: There should be a trail north of here. | Meg: Won't we lose our way in the dark?Bridget: Not if we use the stars as landmarks. | Meg: I'll start a constellation map.Zeke looks up at the sky. | Zeke: There's The Monkey, the Disco Balls major and minor, Lawn Flamingo... | Meg: Nuh-uh! We should be looking for Virgo and a Pisces and a Taurus.Bridget: What does a Pisces look like? | Meg: It's an ancient measuring scale. Or is that "Cancer"?Zeke reviews the map. | Zeke: You put Lawn Flamingo in the wrong place… it's just above that mesa.Meg: Hey! These stars are moving!Bridget: As the Earth spins, I guess it looks like they revolve around the North Pole. | Zeke: The sky is a gigantic compass! We're totally saved!Zeke: Surely we can still contrive some reason to fire the signal flares?
