Kowalski: That’s better. Found a little extra… little extra battery power; it helps I didn’t have you around to distract me.

I have to say, I’m glad to see you, I didn’t think you were gonna make it.

You find the vodka?

Ryan: You never told me where it was, so…

Kowalski: Well…

[Kowalski pulls out a small flask from under his seat]

To Anatoly. Na zdorovje. [He takes a sip and offers the flask to Ryan, who shakes her head]

No? All right, let’s get outta here. The Chinese station’s about 100 miles; just a little Sunday drive.

Ryan: We can’t.

Kowalski: Sure we can.

Ryan: There’s no fuel, I tried everything.

Kowalski: Well, there’s always something we can do.

Ryan: I tried everything.

Kowalski: Did you try the soft landing jets?

Ryan: They’re for landing, so…

Kowalski: Well, landing is launching, it’s the same thing, didn’t you learn about that in training?

Ryan: I never got to land the simulator, I told you that…

Kowalski: But you know about it.

Ryan: And I crashed it every time, I just-

Kowalski: Listen, do you wanna go back, or do you wanna stay here? [Ryan says nothing] I get it, it’s nice up here. You can just… [turns off the lights] shut down all the systems… Turn out all the lights… Just close your eyes and tune out everybody.

There’s nobody up here that can hurt you. It’s safe.

I mean what’s the point of going on, what’s the point of living?

Your kid died. Doesn’t get any rougher than that.

But still, it’s a matter of what you do now. If you decide to go, then you gotta just get on with it. Sit back, enjoy the ride. You gotta plant both your feet on the ground and start living life.

Ryan: How did you get here?

Kowalski: I’m telling you, it’s a hell of a story. Hey, Ryan?

Ryan: What?

Kowalski: It’s time to go home.
