Nighttime at Maxitech Corporation
TRACY: This is it.
TRACY: Move! Come on!
TRACY: You're coming with us for security.
[CAR PULLS UP. EXCHANGE OF GUNFIRE.]
SAWYER: Unit 4, this is Sawyer. They're headed your way. Try and cut them off.
[CAR CHASE. CAR OVERTURNS AND EXPLODES.]
Next morning at Maxitech
ARCHANGEL: You're too good at what you do, Sawyer, to have let this happen.
SAWYER: What the hell's that supposed to mean? They parachuted in. Otherwise, nobody gets by my men.
ARCHANGEL: It's a unique means of infiltration, but this caper has all the earmarks of an inside job, more than likely by someone who had access to your security contingencies.
SAWYER: No kidding, Michael. Very astute. Got any more great revelations for me?
ARCHANGEL: Not just yet. You never could quite fit into the program, could you, Sawyer?
SAWYER: Well, that's why I left the Firm. I finally realized I could never learn to condescend.
ARCHANGEL: Well, the investigation of this matter is now out of the hands of corporate security.
SAWYER: Uh-uh. No way. I'm in charge of security around here, and I don't relinquish authority to anybody.
ARCHANGEL: Maxitech is a GOCO operation. That means government-owned and contractor-operated. So you see, Ken, in a way, you're still working for us. And I'm afraid that the theft of 200 nuclear triggering devices has gone beyond the scope of company security! We're talking about a national, if not a global threat here!
ARCHANGEL: How far out are they?
LYDIA: They should be here any second, sir.
ARCHANGEL: Glad you could join us, gentlemen.
HAWKE: I didn't quite see it as a request.
DOMINIC: More like an order.
SAWYER: Well, I never thought l'd see the day you two became company men. I'd hate to think the Firm finally got to you.
HAWKE: That why you quit, Sawyer?
SAWYER: Let's just call it a career move. Now, if you'll excuse me, I got problems to handle.
ARCHANGEL: Just as long as you understand that we're handling this from now on.
HAWKE: All right, Michael, what's this all about?
ARCHANGEL: Just before sunup, a four-man assault team managed to penetrate Sawyer's security.
HAWKE: Yeah, well, knowing Sawyer, it was no fluke. Probably somebody from the inside dropping the ball.
ARCHANGEL: Exactly. In any case, they made off with 200 thermonuclear detonators.
DOMINIC: Wait a minute. This is a little over my head, but are you talking about triggering devices for nuclear bombs?
ARCHANGEL: That's right. And if somebody's got either plutonium, deuterium or tritium, the radioactive ingredients that make nukes nuclear, they can make a bomb.
HAWKE: Well, what do you want us to do about it, Michael?
ARCHANGEL: The triggers were impregnated with a special low-level radioactive isotope. They can't be shielded in a conventional manner. So it may be possible for Airwolf's surveillance system to pick up the radioactive signals.
DOMINIC: And where do you expect us to start looking for these detonators?
ARCHANGEL: I suggest you start with California.
On a boat
TRACY: You didn't have to make it look so damn convincing.
SAWYER: I've hurt you a lot worse.
TRACY: But afterwards, I enjoyed you.
SAWYER: You'll enjoy your share of the $ 10 million a lot more.
TRACY: You have a way of making promises, Ken, and then a nasty habit of not keeping them.
SAWYER: Don't you trust me?
TRACY: I used to. This woman you want to use to get to Airwolf, why is it necessary to play with her? Why can't you just get on with it?
SAWYER: Because she interests me. And because she's an integral part of my plan.
TRACY: And because it's Sawyer's way or nothing.
SAWYER: Exactly. It's always worked for me. Have a little faith. I introduce myself to this lady, and she'll help deliver Airwolf. You can bet on it.
TRACY: Well, you'd better hope so. Because if she doesn't, I will more than pay you back.
On board Airwolf
DOMINIC: I'm telling you, String, my eyeballs are about ready to fall out. I had no idea there was so much radioactive material scattered around.
HAWKE: Unfortunately, most of us don't.
HAWKE: What you got?
DOMINIC: Probably another x-ray machine in a dentist's office.
DOMINIC: Can you isolate the signal?
HAWKE: Working on it.
DOMINIC: Picking up a high plutonium gamma line reading. We may have something.
HAWKE: Well, you got a fix yet?
DOMINIC: Oh, cut me some slack, huh? Triangulating.
HAWKE: Location identification coming up.
DOMINIC: Yeah, we got something, all right. An x-ray laser emission from the Livermore Biological Research Center. What now?.
HAWKE: We keep looking.
SAWYER: Hey, buddy. Tell me where I can find Caitlin O'Shaughnessy.
CAITLIN: Who wants to know?.
SAWYER: Come on. Come on, kid. I want some directions, not a smart mouth.
CAITLIN: Listen, pal, I'm no kid... Um...
SAWYER: Oh. I'm sorry. I thought you were someone else.
CAITLIN: Caitlin. I'm Caitlin O'Shaughnessy.
SAWYER: Yeah, of course you are. I heard you were one of the best.
SAWYER: Flight instructors.
CAITLIN: Oh! Oh.
SAWYER: Oh, look at this. You hurt yourself. Well, maybe this will help a little bit.
CAITLIN: Yes, I think it will. Thank you.
SAWYER: Well, what about it?
CAITLIN: What? What about what?
SAWYER: Teaching me?
CAITLIN: Teaching you what?
SAWYER: To fly a chopper.
CAITLIN: Oh! Oh, sure. Yeah, I can do that.
SAWYER: Great! When can we start?
CAITLIN: Well, do you have any flight time?
SAWYER: I got a commercial fixed wing. I just want to get my rotary add-on.
CAITLIN: Great. It's no problem. We can start tomorrow morning, as a matter of fact, if you really want to.
SAWYER: Yeah, I'd really like to. The sooner the better.
CAITLIN: Good. I think you'll be a great student.
SAWYER: I know you're gonna be a great teacher.
HAWKE: Hey, Dom!
DOMINIC: What? What? What...
HAWKE: Sleep well?
DOMINIC: Like a baby.
HAWKE: Like a baby moose.
DOMINIC: A what?
HAWKE: Nothing. Listen, give me the next grid search coordinates.
DOMINIC: Oh, sure.
HAWKE: And bring up the Firm's frequency on the radio. Archangel's not gonna be too happy we've been off the air for two hours with nothing to show for it.
DOMINIC: Yeah, except for some much needed shut-eye. I'm telling you, I don't think I could've kept my eyes open much longer.
HAWKE: I know the feeling.
DOMINIC: You know, reminds me of the time your old man and me were ferrying a couple of P-51's over the hump.
DOMINIC: We hadn't had any sleep in 48 hours. And when we finally got to Nepal... Were we a couple of tired puppies.
[AIRWOLF LIFTS OFF]
On board a Santini Air JetRanger
CAITLIN: I gotta say, Ken, you're a quick study.
SAWYER: Like I said, I knew you were gonna be a great teacher.
CAITLIN: No, really. I mean, you've got an almost natural ability.
SAWYER: Maybe some people were just born to fly.
CAITLIN: Well, yeah, I believe that.
SAWYER: Yeah, I really need this fix. There's almost nothing like it.
CAITLIN: I know what you mean. I don't fly for a while, and the old cobwebs start to build up.
SAWYER: Yeah, up here you can really sever those earthbound problems.
SAWYER: Hey, did you hear that now that NASA's got male and female astronauts, they're gonna be asking them to take part in a lovemaking experiment?
CAITLIN: You're kidding.
SAWYER: Seriously. I heard it on the radio this morning.
CAITLIN: Wow, imagine that.
CAITLIN: I think maybe we'd better get back to Van Nuys Airport.
SAWYER: Yeah, boy, to be one of those astronauts... Just think, that lovemaking experiment will give a whole new meaning to the phrase "T minus 20 and holding."
On a boat
SAWYER: No! I think you ought to do it exactly as we planned.
TRACY: And I think you're enjoying this role you're playing just a little too much.
SAWYER: I don't want this woman suspecting one little thing. She's very capable of interference.
TRACY: And if she does?
SAWYER: Then I'll do exactly what I have to do. That's the way it's always been.
TRACY: You mean you'll do whatever you have to do, as long as it satisfies you.
SAWYER: Tracy. No woman has ever known me like you do.
TRACY: You never stop, do you? You just keep on coming.
SAWYER: You wouldn't have it any other way.
TRACY: No, damn it, and that's what I hate.
SAWYER: About you or me?
TRACY: About both of us. I hate you because you just left her, you'll use her. Now you're here with me and you want to use me. And I'll probably let you, and that's what I hate most of all.
SAWYER: You and I are cut from the same cloth. We both know exactly what we want.
TRACY: I want this to be over. I want to move on to the next step of the plan.
SAWYER: You want me.
TRACY: Damn it, yes!
On board Airwolf
HAWKE: Michael, this is Hawke. Come in.
ARCHANGEL: Where the hell have you guys been?
HAWKE: Hey, don't rag on me, Michael. I'm in no mood.
HAWKE: Put us back in section 86. Searching.
At a film location
[CAITLIN PURSUES A BIKER WITH A JETRANGER.]
CAITLIN: First rule of the road: watch where you're going, cowboy.
DIRECTORL And cut. And print! Go get him, fellas.
DIRECTOR: Terrific, sweetheart. Just great.
CAITLIN: You're sure? I could do it again if you want.
DIRECTOR: No, you were super. Next time I'm gonna get you some more lines.
DIRECTOR: Promise. Okay, everybody, we're on the wrong set. Let's all move to Stage 20 for the process.
SAWYER: Bravo! Bravissimo! A star is born!
CAITLIN: Ken! How'd you get on the lot?
SAWYER: I've got friends in Security.
SAWYER: You were great out there!
CAITLIN: Well, Shakespeare it ain't.
SAWYER: But it's a lot of fun.
CAITLIN: Yeah, it is fun. It's a lot of work.
SAWYER: Have you ever thought of going into this full-time?
CAITLIN: What, acting?
CAITLIN: Well, what little girl hasn't? Of course. But, you see, I happen to be a grown-up, and I'm also a pilot, and a good pilot knows his or her limitations.
SAWYER: Spoken like a true grown-up.
CAITLIN: Oh, I hope not. Grown-ups can be so boring.
CAITLIN: What have you got in there? What?
SWYER: In this little basket, I have a bottle with a genie in it named Dom!
CAITLIN: Dom Perignon. I know this guy. He grants great wishes.
SAWYER: I'm counting on it.
CAITLIN: Oh. Okay.
CAITLIN: Oh, Ken, this is perfect.
SAWYER: Your gazebo.
CAITLIN: Thank you.
SAWYER: Our Dom Perignon.
CAITLIN: Ever since we first met, I've kind of had the feeling that you were working on a little bit more than your helicopter rating.
SAWYER: Has it been that obvious?
CAITLIN: No. Hardly.
SAWYER: Well, how am I doing?
CAITLIN: Well enough for me to wonder if you've ever been involved with someone.
SAWYER: Really involved? Cate, in some countries, if you sit in a gazebo with a man and drink champagne, you better be married to him.
CAITLIN: Ken! No, seriously.
SAWYER: Serious seriously?
SAWYER: No. Is that bad?
CAITLIN: It all depends.
SAWYER: I think maybe I'm just too selfish for it.
CAITLIN: Is that a warning?
CAITLIN: What if I said I was willing to take the chance?
SAWYER: Life's a risk, Caitlin O'Shaughnessy. But the more you're willing to risk, the greater the reward.
At a restaurant
SAWYER: Two of the Szechwan specials, please.
SAWYER: I could get really used to this.
CAITLIN: Me, too.
MAN: I'd like to cut in.
SAWYER: Sorry, this one's taken. I think that's up to the lady, isn't it?
CAITLIN: No, thank you.
MAN: Say, you better take me up on this offer to dance, quick. In another 45 minutes, I'm gonna give up and leave.
CAITLIN: Look, you're somewhat amusing, but...
SAWYER: In other words, you're bothering us.
MAN: Besides not too smart, what else do you like in a man?
CAITLIN: I think that's enough.
SAWYER: You heard the lady.
MAN: I don't think this guy's really got the goods that you need, you know.
SAWYER: Before you make a complete ass out of yourself, I'd ask myself the question, "Wouldn't I rather be at the bar, having a nice, cozy drink?" Well, would you?
MAN: Yeah, sure. Why not?
SAWYER: Well said.
SAWYER: Actually, I hired him to make me look good.
CAITLIN: Give the man a bonus.
On board Airwolf
[AIRWOLF REFUELS FROM A KC-135 TANKER.]
HAWKE: Michael, we've searched the entire grid of California, in fact, the entire left coast. We're zip on fuel. We've gotta make a rendezvous with a fuel ship.
ARCHANGEL: Make one final high-speed run up the middle of the state and do a pattern recognition for confirmation.
HAWKE: All right. By that time, we'll have run a preliminary sequential sector search in Arizona and we can transmit it to your sonic scanner for extrapolation.
DOMINIC: You mean we may end up searching every state in the Union? If we have to. We're talking about nuclear weapons here.
TANKER PILOT: Heavy 004, Airwolf.
HAWKE: Airwolf. Go.
TANKER PILOT: We just about got you topped off. Anything else we can do before we disconnect?
DOMINIC: /Oh, sure! You can check the oil and clean the windshield, please.
TANKER PILOT: Funny man. Stand by to disconnect on your count.
DOMINIC: Five, four, three, two, one, disconnect.
On board Caitlin's JetRanger
CAITLIN: Okay, Ken. Watch your altitude.
CAITLIN: Collective full down. Roll the throttle off. Good.
CAITLIN: Well, I couldn't have done it better myself.
SAWYER: Thanks, coach. We aim to please.
CAITLIN: You certainly do.
CAITLIN: Ken, what is it?
SAWYER: I want you to know, Cate, what's about to happen has to happen.
CAITLIN: What are you talking about?
[SAWYER LANDS THE JETRANGER.]
SAWYER: Get out of the chopper, Cate.
SAWYER: Just get out. Come on!
CAITLIN: What the hell are you doing?
[SAWYER ACTIVATES AN EMERGENCY BEACON ON THE JETRANGER.]
At Caitlin's JetRanger
[HAWKE SWITCHES OFF THE EMERGENCY BEACON.]
DOMINIC: Single vehicle. Looks like it went that way.
[ARCHANGEL'S LIMO PULLS UP.] ARCHANGEL: What's going on?
HAWKE: We picked up an ELT signal on our radios. That's an emergency crash locator beacon. It was identified as Santini Air. Looks like somebody snatched Caitlin.
ARCHANGEL: For what purpose?
HAWKE: Michael, your guess is as good as mine. But we're going to start a search immediately.
ARCHANGEL: Now, wait a minute, Hawke! I'm concerned about her safety, too, but we've...
DOMINIC: Now, look! Don't you give us any bull about your priorities, Archangel, not when it concerns Cate, or, by God, you and me are gonna go nose-to-nose, pal.
ARCHANGEL: All right, all right! Besides, I know you two well enough to realize that until this thing with Caitlin is cleared up, neither of you'd be of any use to anybody anyway.
ARCHANGEL: Place a call to the Governor. Tell him I'd like to request he activate the Air National Guard to assist us in the search for those detonators.
LYDIA: Yes, sir.
ARCHANGEL: I've still got a job to do.
HAWKE: Well, you do what you gotta do, Michael.
LYDIA: Sir, it's Ken Sawyer. He says he's looking for Mr. Hawke. He's got Cate.
SAWYER: Hawke, what are you doing out in the middle of nowhere? Did you lose something?
HAWKE: You listen to me. If that girl is hurt in any way, you're as good as dead.
SAWYER: Now, Hawke, she'll be fine, as long as you follow my instructions to the tee.
HAWKE: So what do you want?
HAWKE: Just like that, huh?
SAWYER: Just like that. You see, I need to move something out of the country, fast and quiet. It requires Mach-plus speed, stealth capabilities.
HAWKE: This is in exchange for Caitlin, right?
SAWYER: That's right. On the other hand, if you go jumping froggy on me, she's a long time dead. I'll let you know where to pick me up.
HAWKE: Sawyer wants Airwolf.
ARCHANGEL: Damn it! He was staring me straight in the face all the time, and I didn't wanna see it! The theft of those detonators was an inside job. Who better than the head of security?
On board Sawyer's boat
SAWYER: The woman betrayed. It's in your eyes.
CAITLIN: Can you also see stupidity?
SAWYER: Don't be so hard on yourself.
TRAcY: All set.
CAITLIN: Ken. I have to know. Last night...
SAWYER: Didn't mean a thing.
At a rendezvous with Sawyer
[AIRWOLF LANDS. SAWYER GETS ON BOARD.]
SAWYER: Mmm-mmm. Fantastic. I love it.
HAWKE: You know, Sawyer, this is no E Ticket ride at Disneyland. Let's get on with this, huh?
SAWYER: Fly a heading of 060.
SAWYER: Are we running on stealth mode?
DOMINIC: You asked for it, you got it.
SAWYER: Now, this is an interesting little device.
DOMINIC: Some kind of bomb, I suppose.
SAWYER: Essentially. There's a couple of electronic refinements that make the device impossible to be tampered with.
SAWYER: Now, this is a remote triggering device. It's got a signal range of just over 300 miles. If I release tension or it's jarred from my hand...
LYDIA: Angel One, do you read me? Do you copy?
By Sawyer's Boat
LYDIA: Sir, I have contact with Airwolf.
ARCHANGEL: Are you sure Sawyer can't monitor our transmissions?
LYDIA: No, only Mr. Santini can hear us. He can relay communications via his terminal modem to our system. I've also patched in a voice synthesizer. Their computer will talk to us, sir.
On board Airwolf
SAWYER: What the hell are you doing back there?
DOMINIC: This is the engineering console. I make sure we stay in the air, pal.
By Sawyer's Boat
ARCHANGEL: Have you informed them that we've located the ship?
LYDIA: No, sir. I've just made initial contact.
ARCHANGEL: Hawke, Dominic, can you copy?
SYNTHESIZED VOICE: [WORDS TYPED BY DOMINIC] Roger.
ARCHANGEL: We've located a ship from which Sawyer made that call to you.
SYNTHESIZED VOICE: Have you found Caitlin?
ARCHANGEL: Negative. But obviously Sawyer wanted us to trace that call. When we tried to board the ship, we found that it's been systematically booby-trapped with explosives. We're assuming she's on board.
SYNTHESIZED VOICE: He has a bomb detonator box with C-4 bombs. Cannot be disarmed or removed from attached point. The transmitter will set off a timing device, and 60 seconds later, the bomb will explode.
On board Airwolf
HAWKE: We're headed straight for Maxitech.
SAWYER: Very perceptive.
HAWKE: Those detonators were never even stolen, were they?
SAWYER: Perceptive again!
DOMINIC: A fake! lt was all a fake!
HAWKE: You knew that those detonators couldn't be triggered conventionally, that we'd find them sooner or later, huh? The raid on the plant was just a smokescreen.
SAWYER: A dog chasing his own tail just gets dizzy.
By Sawyer's boat
ARCHANGEL: Well! Glad to see they sent you, Babe.
BABE: Sounded interesting. What's it look like, Mike?
ARCHANGEL: Well, we're not sure if the girl's on board, but we've located several booby-traps on the ship, and everything else tells us that it's highly probable.
BABE: You run those facts through one of them there fancy computers of yours, Mikey?
BABE: Well, from the briefing I got, l'd lay odds it's a good bet the little lady's on the ship.
SAWYER: Open it.
DOMINIC: Oh! That's why this whole area registered hot on our equipment.
SAWYER: A simple but effective hiding place.
SAWYER: Now pull those detonators out of there and get them onboard Airwolf. Now!
On board Sawyer's boat
HANSEN: This one seems to be like all the others.
BABE: Yeah, tension-release.
BABE: You pull the door open, it releases the tension on the wire, the detonator goes off and you're stew meat.
HANSEN: I guess this means I'm not supposed to move?
BABE: Not unless you wanna end up in the crow's-nest.
On board Airwolf
SAWYER: When we hit Tijuana, hang a right to 101 and cut over to the Rio Hardy.
HAWKE: Yeah, and then what? I've got two planes waiting to escort me south.
SAWYER: We offload the nuclear triggers onto my plane and you two guys can split.
DOMINIC: You expect us to believe that you're gonna turn us loose? Well, what's to prevent us from coming after you?
SAWYER: This. And the fact that you've got a bomb on board, plus one strapped to your lady friend.
SAWYER: By the time your bomb squad guys get it disarmed, I'll be long gone.
On board Sawyer's boat
BABE: Uh-oh. We got a problem here, Michael.
ARCHANGEL: Babe, you're one of the few people in the world who can get away with calling me Mike. When you call me Michael, I know we're in trouble.
BABE: Well, I thought maybe you might wanna move on out of here.
ARCHANGEL: Sounds like a hell of an idea.
CAITLIN: Help! Help!
ARCHANGEL: That's Cate.
CAITLIN: Michael! Michael, I'm in here!
ARCHANGEL: Cate, everything's all right! Hang on! We're coming!
At a disused airfield
SAWYER: Well, thanks, Hawke. I really appreciate the ride.
HAWKE: Sawyer, that girl better be all right.
SAWYER: Hero till the end, huh, Hawke?
On board Sawyer's boat
BABE: Assembly and wiring's pro. I can't cut out the timing mechanism without triggering an arming device.
BABE: Detonator's protected, too. 5 will get you 10 there's a release trigger on the back side.
ARCHANGEL: What do we do?
BABE: Well, I think we'll use the old version of the credit card trick. Here goes nothing.
ARCHANGEL: Your choice of words leaves a lot to be desired, Babe.
ARCHANGEL: Cate! Where are you?
CAITLIN: Michael, over here! Boy, am I glad to see you!
CAITLIN: Can you fix it?
BABE: It's my real name, Henry. I wanted you to know that, Michael.
On board Tracy's B-25
TRACY: I still say you're crazy if you think they're not going to come after us.
SAWYER: Well, they sure as hell aren't going to send Airwolf after us.
On Saywer's boat and on board Airwolf
ARCHANGEL: [On Sawyer's boat] Babe.
HAWKE: He armed it. When that top display gets to zero, that's it. How we doing?
DOMINIC: I'm working on it. If I can't find a detonator radio frequency, we won't be able to block the firing mechanism.
HAWKE: We're going to know in 21 seconds.
DOMINIC: I'm trying.
DOMINIC: Yahoo! Jamming!
ARCHANGEL: It stopped!
HAWKE: That's cutting it pretty close, Dom. Three seconds.
BABE: Caitlin, you're okay. I told you, Michael, everything is gonna be all right.
ARCHANGEL: It's okay, Cate. I've got you now. Everything's all right.
Air combat sequence
HAWKE: [ON RADIO TO THE B-25s] Set those planes down. Now!
SAWYER: The detonator doesn't work. Go!

BABE: Where have you guys been? You missed all the fun.
