I've always been better at feeling out volcanoes than people and politics.

My father says that almost the whole world is asleep. Everybody you know. Everybody you see. Everybody you talk to. He says that only a few people are awake and they live in a state of constant total amazement.

So, when we get out of here -- and we will get out of here -- what do you say we go down to Florida, we get ourselves a boat, and we stock it with all the nicest, yummiest things…we can possibly get our hands on, and we go out there and we catch ourselves a big, old, fat fish? Does that sound good?

I have less than six months to live. The Waponis believe they need a human sacrifice or their island is going to sink into the ocean. They have this mineral your father wants so he hired me to leap into their volcano.

I believe that this is not the time to put this town on alert. this type of thing happened with mammoth mountain in 1980. The good thing is, that the mountain didn't go up, but the damage was already done, tourists stopped going to the mountain, real estate values plummeted, and the town nearly went bankrupt. My team and I are going to stay as long as we can, and we are going to monitor every little hiccup that mountain makes, we're gonna bounce off laser beams, to find out of any change in the mountain's shape, and see if there is any increase in gas emissions, we're even gonna send a robot up there to take the darn thing's temperature. So, if the times comes to put this town on alert, "if" the times comes, it will be based on scientific evidence, and not based on somebody's opinion.

My 9th grade science teacher always said that if you put a frog in boiling hot water, it would jump out. But put it in cold water, and heat it up gradually, it would slowly boil to death.

What's that Harry? Your recipe for frog soup?

It's my recipe for a disaster.

There's lava in the red line. This just came through on the radio. The lava had overtaken a subway train in Macarthur Park and completely destroyed it.

Paper beats rock, but scissors beat paper.

I'm not paper; I'm lava. What beats lava?

My dad... I hope!

I tell you one thing, though. Wherever we go, whatever we do, we're gonna take this luggage with us.

Well, we now have a name for this crisis. It is, according to the US Geological Survey, a volcano! As crazy as it sounds, a volcano, here.
