Cal, the artist
GRACE: Uh, no, but we can get you a whole bunch at the store. Sketchpad, like you had, the works.
Saanvi, the doctor
SAANVI: Hey, guys.
BEN: Honey, this is, uh, the doctor I told you about.
GRACE: Nice to meet you.
SAANVI: Oh, hi, there.
GRACE: You all being on the plane together, it’s miraculous.
SAANVI: Yeah, so my parents say. They’ve been praying at every meal. But right now, I’m gonna focus my energy on this guy. You ready for round two, buddy?
BEN: See you, bud.
GRACE: Get ’em.
SAANVI: Later, Mom and Dad.
Points on a Continuum
I find it interesting that the three main passenger characters are sort of points on a continuum.
- Ben is an almost pure materialist, and is certain he can figure everything out;
- Michaela has been more or less running on faith ever since the plane landed.
- Saanvi is right in the middle: she’s a scientist and looks at things analytically, but she also accepts that there are things happening to her and the other passengers that science can’t explain.
I get the impression from a couple of passing remarks in previous episodes that her parents are observantly religious, and this has rubbed off on her to at least some degree.

Grace, the caterer[CELLPHONE RINGS AGAIN, CLICKS]
BEN: Need to take that?
GRACE: No, it’s just a work thing. I’m catering this office party, and the client’s always checking in.
BEN: [SIGHS] Of course. I keep forgetting. My wife, the entrepreneur.
GRACE: Ah, well. [CHUCKLES]
Ben, the unemployed
BEN: Look, you must have a ton to take care of, so why don’t I take a walk?
GRACE: No, no, no. You don’t…
BEN: I can make some job-search calls, and we can meet later back home. I’ll take tomorrow’s shift. I’ll call you later.
