Flying to Florida
We love this dialogue between the travelers that Jessica annotated. Read below to find out more about how Rainey Roomers perceive air travel. So fascinating!
Lane: We’re going to the beach.
Jessica McMillan: I forgot to pack my swimsuit. Maybe I can buy one when we get there.
Lane: Well, there’s no store at the beach, but you can use mine.
Wolf B: The pilots know where we’re going. (He is looking at the airplane projection on the shadow screen)
Wolf B: We’re going to Florida.
Wolf M: We’re going to Montana.
Lane: You need a passport. We need our passports, kids.
Wolf B: We’re coming in to land. Put your seat belt on.
Lane: Daughters don’t talk in the airplane. (Possibly trying to shush the baby) I need my passport and camera.
Wolf B: We’re going to a different airport, down here to the London airport.
Lane: Who’s the pilot?
Oliver: Wolfie, you can be the pilot.
Wolf B: I am the pilot.
Lane: Pilot, we need to go back home now because my baby needs to sleep and I forgot the crib.
Wolf M: We’re flying to Florida.
Wolf B: The sun’s going down. Go to sleep… it’s rest time.
Oliver: My baby is crying, it’s time for baby to sleep.
Lane: Baby needs to go potty training.
Wolf M: (on the phone) We’re coming into airport.
Wolf B: We’re coming into landing. (On the projection, the airplane is also landing) Lane… you need to put your seatbelt on or you’ll be in trouble. It's dangerous.
(few minutes later, the projection shows the airplane going through clouds)
Wolf B: We’re bumping, we’re bumping, we’re going through the clouds and we’re bumping! The sun is going down. Do you see it?
Lane: The sunset is beautiful.
Wolf B: Yes, it is.
Jessica McMillan: Oh, look at that light! (seeing sunlight on projection)
Lane: That’s from heaven. It’s God. God was coming down from heaven when we were flying. God comes down from heaven in the sunset.
(Oliver and Lane tell Jessica they are both her mom. She asks the Wolfs if they are moms too.)
Wolf B: No I’m the pilot.
Wolf M: I’m the Papa.
Oliver: I’m making drinks. (He uses nearby pencil sharpeners) Drinks for everyone. I’m the snack girl. I have cookies. Would you like a cookie? (Hands out erasers) I have juice, drinks, and more cookies.
