Five ways Brody and Volker got lost
"Franklin says it's a great show. We should get it."
Brody and Volker are at Wal Mart in the Media section, brooding over which DVDs to buy. Brody gives Volker a level stare but Volker just grins.
"Oh, all right," Brody mutters finally and grabs the latest box set of "Lost" and heads to the register.
"I don't get it," Brody says after the first viewing.
Volker rolls his eyes and launches into a lengthy explanation of the plot.
"You are so full of shit," Franklin pipes up and takes his feet off the coffee table. As he explains the story Brody and Volker stare at him openmouthed.
"I finally get it," they say in unison.
"Don't you have something better to do than to get in my way?" Dr Rush barks at them. Brody and Volker look at each other.
"Um, no – this is our job, we're on your research and engineering team, remember?"
"Well, you know what? You aren't helping. Do me a favor and get lost."
They shrug and leave quietly. It's the same conversation every day on Icarus.
"Which way to the control room?" Volker asks.
"Down that way," Brody points.
"Nope, that's the water storage."
"We're lost again, aren't we?"
"Where the hell are Brody and Volker?" Lisa is visibly annoyed.
"Right behind me," Eli jerks a thumb over his shoulder. Lisa looks.
Eli checks the corridor.
"Shit. Looks like I lost them."
And he quickly puts a kino into Search Mode and sends it back the way he came. Lisa shakes her head and sighs.
