Grace wants answers

AIRLINE SPOKESMAN: There’s a search operation in progress.

MAN: Now, that’s the official answer. Tell us what’s really going on.

AIRLINE SPOKESMAN: That’s all the information I have at this time. We’re doing all we can.

GRACE: But what are you doing? Who’s looking for my family?

AIRLINE SPOKESMAN: Ma’am, you need to calm down.

GRACE: The hell I do! My family’s on that plane.

She hangs tightly onto Olive who has her arms wrapped around her mom. 

LOURDES [TO JARED]: Olive shouldn’t be hearing this.

She walks up to Grace and Olive.

LOURDES: Hey, O! How was Jamaica? Come tell Auntie…

GRACE [TO JARED]: Oh, my God. I should have said no. I should have made him stay on our flight. We’d all be together now. Cal would be here now.

JARED: I thought you said they were bumped.

GRACE: No, they volunteered for $400, and now my son is missing. Oh, my God.

JARED She didn’t want to come back?

Karen holds Olive tightly to her chest.

OLIVE: I want my dad! – I want my dad!

KAREN: I know.
