Enter Foster and standing guard
Foster Is everything finished?
guard Yessir. We're waiting for your word.
Foster Great. The trucks will be here in a few minutes. I'm going to Control. Get ready to peel back the inner gate, will you? And get another man to help.
guard All right, Chief. May I ask, though: how do you mean to open the outer gate, seeing that it's rigged with the voltage?
Foster I'll need to turn it off.
guard What, the enclosure?
Foster Yes—just so I can open and close the second gate from Control.
Foster What's the matter?
guard How long do you suppose this will take?
Foster Oh, too long, naturally. Go on; find another guard to help you out. That gate is made of non-corrodible iron and you'll need all the arms you can get.
guard Yes sir.
Enter Grey and his son Sailor
Sailor Look at that, Dad! They're at the gate!
Grey I know.
Sailor They're huge!
Grey They're pretty big.
Sailor Shiny too. How fast can they go? Is the enclosure off yet?
Grey You'll know when it's off.
Sailor What if we miss it?
Grey We won't.
Listen, Sailor, Chief John is only going to turn it off for just a moment, okay? There's nothing to worry about.
Sailor Oh—sure. Chief John knows what he's doing.
Grey Good, that's good. Hey, would you get down from there? You're going to break the couch.
What do you think they're made of?
Grey The trucks? I don't know. Polycorp alloy probably.
Sailor I thought that was the stuff in the enclosure.
Grey It is. It's used for quite a few different things.
[rumbling within] —Hey, you hear that?
