You ask Michelle how she's doing, and what her take on things is now that she knows she has more time.

"It's... weird, kinda," she says. "I had gotten kinda numb to knowin' I was gonna die. Like... I just shoved it in the back of my mind, tried to accept it as best I could. Caius said he'd done the same--he'd just been told about what he was a lot earlier on. Like, right outta the tube, they told him he was expendable... so he never really got his hopes up. He thought about what he was a lot, but he made an effort not to think about the... the end. It was harder for me, 'cuz I went so long thinkin' I was gonna get to have a life.

Now that it's switched back around... I dunno. Everything I know's been turned upside down, and the whole city looks different than it used to. I dunno what's gonna happen when all this is over--we might overthrow Thale and become huge celebrities, or we might be runnin' from the government for the rest of our lives. It's hard to plan when some new crazy nonsense is happenin' everyday. One minute it's aliens, then it's freaky fear mutants, then it's robots... and the whole world'll be different tomorrow.

Whatever happens... I think the only thing I know for sure is I wanna get outta this city. I dunno what it's like elsewhere, if it's better or worse. I just... want us to be out. I want us to save everybody, beat the bad guys, and escape from it all. Go see the world, maybe. Take a big stupid vacation.

This city's startin' to feel like a prison."

Maybe we can ask Michelle what she'd rather do? Hang out, investigate the bunker doors or both.

A big stupid vacation sounds like an excellent exit plan XD

Caius knew the whole time, eh. I guess I sort of saw that coming, given the things he says and his lack of reaction when Jane and Dr. Finch just talked about this whole thing while checking Michelle's truck for tracers.

I like that Caius and Michelle have been having these deep conversations about this stuff while they've been hanging out together. <3 It must be nice to be able to connect on that level, since no one else in the party would fully be able to.

Let's tell Michelle we'll go to all the best places and see the world (and maybe other planets) after this whole thing is resolved, because gosh darnit, we're gonna see this through! And then go mess with Bunker C, unless Michelle wants to chat s'more. We always have time to chat with Michelle baby boo. <3

To be fair, we could just head out from one of the linked bunkers to another part of the world and never look back... they'll go nuts looking for us when we're long gone.

Through the power of cliché books, the main characters shall never die!

I've seen the main character get "handed off" in a few books.

... O.o;

I believe that's our cue to give hugs. Lots o' hugs.

Oh, that gives me an idea! We should make a "Get 1 Hug Free" coupon for Jury. That way we won't have to walk that awkward line of whether we should hug her or not! She can more-or-less initiate it.

EDIT: Also we should play a game of "Where's Willard?". Hint: You can only see 2-3 pixels of him.
