Hours Wherever We Are Lyrics Lyrics

BEVERLEY (spoken)
When you include the original flight, we were on the plane for twelve...thirteen hours

MAN (spoken)
We were on there fifteen hours

MAN (spoken)
Twenty hours

MAN (spoken)
Twenty-eight hours. We were on the plane for over an entire day

COMPANY
Twenty-eight hours
Over an entire day
There was one aisle in the middle
Everyone knew every inch of that plane

MAN (spoken)
We were allowed out of our seats, but not off the plane

MAN (spoken)
You never think about it, but airplane doors are twenty feet in the air

MAN (spoken)
And even if you survived the jump, they probably would have shot you
ADVERTISEMENT

MAN (spoken)
You can go up to first class. You can stretch in the aisles

MAN (spoken)
There are three seats on each side and there was only one aisle in the middle

MAN (spoken)
Everyone knew every inch of that plane

WOMAN (spoken)
Our flight was full! There were children sleeping on the floor

WOMAN (spoken)
We had no way to get information

MAN (spoken)
This is before most people had mobile phones. And only a couple people got through

MAN (spoken)
Hello?

MAN (spoken)
Mom!

WOMAN (spoken)
Bonjour?

WOMAN (spoken)
Operator?

BEVERLEY
Tom?
Oh, thank God!
I finally got through
I borrowed a passenger's phone
How are you?
Are the kids okay?
No, I'm fine Tom
I'm fine
Safe and sound on the ground here in Newfoundland
We don't know much except for the BBC
Listen
I can't talk long
Can you do something for me?

MAN (spoken)
I'm okay

MAN (spoken)
I'm fine

WOMAN (spoken)
Vais bien

WOMAN (spoken)
Pick up!

BEVERLEY
Tell the kids I'm alright
Take them into the kitchen
And show them the map
That we used to put pins in
For each destination
That we flew together
Tell them that I'm fine
Put a pin here in Gander

NICK (spoken)
On our plane, someone has a cell phone

MAN (spoken)
But then the battery dies

MAN (spoken)
There are phones in the backs of the seats

WOMAN (spoken)
But they don't work!

WOMAN (spoken)
Half of the passengers on our plane don't speak English!

MAN (spoken)
Even if we knew what was happening, we don't speak their language

MAN (spoken)
On our plane, we asked the flight attendants

WOMAN (spoken)
But the captain says not to say too much, and that's when rumors start flying

WOMAN (spoken)
There's an accident

MAN (spoken)
An accident?

MAN (spoken)
The US airspace is closed

MAN (spoken)
For the first time in history

MAN (spoken)
Why won't she tell us what's happening?

MAN (spoken)
A helicopter crashed in Pennsylvania

WOMAN (spoken)
A helicopter crashed into a building

MAN (spoken)
Oh my god! It's World War III!

MAN
Meanwhile on our plane

MAN
We didn't have a clue

MAN
We were all going insane because

COMPANY
There wasn't squat to do

MAN
Then the captain starts apologizing
Says on behalf of the airline
He's giving each and everyone some

COMPANY
Complimentary booze!
Open the airplane doors
Wave at all the cars
Hello to whoever you are
Wherever we are

WOMAN (spoken)
The ground crews supplied whatever we needed

MAN (spoken)
Nicotine patches

MAN (spoken)
Medication

WOMAN (spoken)
Pampers

COMPANY
Something to drink!

MAN
So the flight attendants brought out
All the mini-bottles of liquor
And delivered them to everyone

COMPANY
Soon everyone got friendlier

MAN
I took a couple of pictures of the view there in my camera
We didn't know where we were
But we knew that we were hammered

COMPANY
Open the airplane doors
Wave at all the locals
Surely there's something better to do than park
Wherever we are

KEVIN JUNG (spoken)
We'd been sitting there for fourteen hours when we pull out the Grey Goose

KEVIN TUERFF (spoken)
Kevin and I were kinda hiding it because...

KEVIN JUNG (spoken)
...Because we didn't want to share it. Anyway, this woman,
this hot mess behind us, kept completely freaking out

WOMAN (spoken)
I don't understand why they can't let us off. I mean, just to stretch our legs?!
I mean, really? I need to get some air! Oh, my God, I need to get off this plane!

KEVIN TUERFF (spoken)
And my boyfriend Kevin. We're both named Kevin. It was cute for a while.
Anyway, Kevin was not dealing with it well

KEVIN (spoken)
I'm going to kill her

WOMAN (spoken)
Excuse me?! I would like to get off the plane. I am claustrophobic!

KEVIN (spoken)
Excuse me, would you like some Xanax? Because you are freaking out and
it is freaking me out and we are all freaking the fuck out

COMPANY
Open the airplane doors
Let a little air in here
Cause I could use a shower or a bar
(Or a bar)
Open the airplane doors
Look at all the planes out there
There must be a convention it's bizarre
Wherever we are

Twenty-eight hours
(Twenty-eight hours)
Out of the window
Twenty-eight hours
(Twenty-eight hours)
Nothing but darkness
Twenty-eight hours
(Twenty-eight hours)
Darkness and headlights
Twenty-eight hours
(Twenty-eight hours)
Nothing to see

WOMAN (spoken)
The flight attendants keep telling us nothing's wrong. When, I've got kids,
and I've got grandkids, I know when someone's hiding something.
And when parents need their kids to stop asking questions, they start playing movies

WOMAN (spoken)
We ran through every movie we had: Legally Blonde, Doctor Doolittle 2, and...Titanic

WOMAN
Near, far, wherever you

COMPANY
Nothing to do
Nothing to see
Thank god we stopped at the duty-free
Wherever we are

NICK (spoken)
Do you mind if I sit? I need to get to work
and there's some drunk people at the back of the plane singing at the top of their lungs

DIANE (spoken)
No, of course. I'm Diane

NICK (spoken)
Nick. How are you doing?

DIANE (spoken)
I'm...worried about someone. He was flying today.
I just wish there was some way to tell him where I am

NICK (spoken)
Newfoundland. Oh, no, you know that. You just can't tell him. Right. I'm hoping
you're one of those people who laughs when English people say awkward things

DIANE (spoken)
I just wish we knew what was happening

WOMAN (spoken)
What's happening?

WOMAN (spoken)
What's happening?

COMPANY
Somewhere in between

DIANE (spoken)
Your life

NICK (spoken)
And your work

COMPANY
When the world may be falling apart
And you think

DIANE
I'm alone

NICK
I'm alone

NICK & DIANE
And I'm so damn helpless

COMPANY
There's nothing left to do but drink

WOMAN
We open the airplane doors
Flash all the cars
Wooh!
I've never done that before

COMPANY
Twenty-eight hours
God! Over an entire day
Running out of things to say
And if there's someone
Going to clue us in
Tell us all what's happening
Because the sun is setting
And we're sitting in the dark
Wherever we are

MAN (spoken)
Later that night, I'm up in the cockpit with some of the other passengers
when the pilot puts the radio on over the intercom,
and the whole plane goes silent when the president gives his speech

GEORGE W. BUSH (spoken)
I ask the American people to join me in saying thanks for all the folks
who've been fighting hard to rescue our fellow citizens
and to join me in saying a prayer for the victims and their families.
The resolve of our great nation is being tested, but, make no mistake,
we will show the world that we will pass this test. God bless

BEVERLEY
You got through to the airline
Tom, I'm okay
Tell me what's happening out there
How bad is it?
Tom, tell me everything
Tom, who was in the air?
No, no I wouldn't have known them
No, no one on that airline
Charles?! Are you sure?
No, I'm fine Tom
I'm fine
