Previously on The Survivor ...
Ambulance driver: We've got someone here! There's a person here!
Nurse Bryson: I think she is very lucky to be alive. She's in a coma, but she is getting better.
Officer Garner: Two months ago there was a robbery of a bank truck. The robbers were never caught, and the money is gone. Two million dollars.
Buddy: The other guys from the bank robbery. They know about you. They know you are an FBI agent. They know I’m 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.
Pilot: I’m the pilot. I need to know where we're going.
Buddy: We are going far from here, OK? Just take off.
Pilot: Fine. Keep calm, please.
Agent Sanders: Stop right there!
Buddy: Sanders! What are you doing here?
Agent Sanders: My name is Agent Sanders. I'm with the FBI. I want you to stop this plane right now.
Buddy: No way. We’re leaving. And you! How did you find me?
Agent Sanders: It wasn't hard, Buddy.
Buddy: 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, tell the pilot to stop the plane.
Buddy: No way. Do NOT listen to her. Just take off, take off now.
Pilot: I'm sorry, I don't want any trouble ...
Buddy: If you won't 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, what are you doing! Don't touch that, don't ...
Agent Sanders: ... Uhhhh ... huhhhhh .... Huhhhello?
Nurse Bryson: Jane? You're awake! You're awake! Let me call 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: Agent Kowalski. He's a criminal. Very dangerous.
Nurse Bryson: Oh, Jane. Let me get the doctor.
Agent Sanders: No, wait! Please. There isn't time.
Nurse Bryson: OK, Jane. Tell me. What is it?
Agent Sanders: Monica.
Nurse Bryson: What?
Agent Sanders: My name is Monica. Monica Sanders. I'm an FBI agent.
Nurse Bryson: Nice to meet you, Monica Sanders. What can I do?
Agent Sanders: Please, listen very carefully ...
