Previously on The Survivor ...
Ambulance driver: We've got a survivor here! There's a survivor here!
Nurse Bryson: She is very lucky to be alive. She's in a coma, but we hope she will come out of it.
Officer Garner: Two months ago a bank truck with over two million dollars was robbed. The criminals were never caught, and the money disappeared.
Buddy: The other guys from the bank job, the robbery. They know about you. They know you're an FBI agent. They know I've been talking to you.
Agent Kowalski: I need you to wake up, Agent Sanders. I need you to wake up and tell me where the money is.
Buddy: Just be quiet and fly the plane where I tell you to.
Pilot: OK, OK. Stay calm. We are moving now. You don't want an accident, do you?
Buddy: Just fly.
Pilot: Hey. There's a door open. In the back … how did that ...
Agent Sanders: Stop right there!
Buddy: What? What are you doing? How did you get on the plane?
Agent Sanders: My name is Agent Sanders. I'm with the FBI. I want you to stop this plane right now.
Buddy: Are you crazy? How did you find me?
Agent Sanders: It wasn't hard, Buddy. I followed you here.
Buddy: Yeah, and jumped on my plane! Well, if you're so smart you know I don't have the money with me.
Agent Sanders: I know. But I also know where you put the money. So turn this plane around and let's go back to the city and talk about this.
Buddy: No way, man. Do NOT listen to her. Take off, just take off now!
Pilot: Listen, I don't want any trouble ...
Buddy: If you aren't gonna take off, then move over!
Agent Sanders: Stop it! What are you doing?
Buddy: I am NOT going back! I don't care ...
Pilot: Hey man, what are you doing! Don't touch that, don't ...
Agent Sanders: Uhhhh ... huhhhhh ... Huhhhello?
Nurse Bryson: Jane? Oh, you're awake. You're awake! You're awake! Let me get the doctor!
Agent Sanders: Wait. Wait.
Nurse Bryson: What?
Agent Sanders: Help. I need your help. It's very dangerous.
Nurse Bryson: What do you mean?
Agent Sanders: The FBI agent. He isn't ... he's a criminal. Very dangerous.
Nurse Bryson: Oh, Jane. Let me get the doctor.
Agent Sanders: No, wait! Please. There isn't much time.
Nurse Bryson: OK, Jane. Tell me. Tell me what you need to tell me.
Agent Sanders: Monica.
Nurse Bryson: What?
Agent Sanders: It's Monica. Monica Sanders. I'm an FBI agent.
Nurse Bryson: Nice to meet you, Monica Sanders. What can I do to help?
Agent Sanders: I need you to listen very carefully ...
