- Zero and Stanley continue up the mountain, getting closer and closer to Big Thumb. They see weeds growing in the area, and there are gnats biting at their skin. Blech.
- Suddenly, Zero doubles over in pain and vomits up the sploosh. Then, trooper that he is, he gives Stanley a thumbs-up and they keep walking.
- Stanley realizes that the presence of weeds and bugs means that there must be water nearby. Zero smiles happily at this idea and then passes out.
- Stanley can't wake him up.
